Are you going through an identity crisis? Do you feel you are not capable and qualified? Do you wonder what "the other guy" who succeed seem to have that you don't have? All you see is your own sorry existence, questionable pasts and mistakes, difficult personality and rusty skill?
Well friend, I have good news for you. What matters is what GOD has seen in you and said concerning you. GOD sees you capable, qualified and able to achieve greatness. GOD does not ever joke with you. Where others see you weak, GOD uses it to confound the wise and make you to soar upon your highest places.
I want you to know that GOD is faithful, merciful, extremely loving and kind and HE keeps every of HIS promises. What GOD says HE will do, HE does and no one ever questions HIM, not even the naysayers! GOD will never forsake you when you run to HIM.
GOD is strong enough, loving enough, trustworthy enough, and present enough to accomplish anything HE calls you to do! And just in case you ever wonder what GOD could possibly be thinking when HE calls someone like you, read the "sheepherder's" (Moses) eloquent farewell speech (the whole book of Deuteronony). You will find a man so transformed by a lifetime of seeing what only GOD can do that he doesn't spend a minute bringing up what he can or cannot do! Only GOD can change any situation at all!

Your thoughts are the primary cause of everything. So when you think a sustained thought it is immediately sent out into the Universe. That thought magnetically attaches itself to the like frequency, and then within seconds sends the reading of that frequency back to you through your feelings.
Put another way, your feelings are communicated back to you from the Universe, telling you what frequency you are currently on. Your feelings are your frequency feedback mechanism!

It is easy for us to notice the things we have received- especially those things that are tangible and of value. It is also easy for us to give attention to the things we have not received but perhaps hoped for- our goals, dreams, and ambitions. However, it is much harder for us to keep in mind all those things from which we have escaped-harmful things, hurtful things, difficult things that would have burdened our hearts and minds- and to feel a deep sense of gratitude that we have been spared such suffering, that those things have not been a part of our lives.
Never let your problems outweigh your thankfulness, even though sometimes, it may be difficult to feel a sense of gratitude in the midst of lack and unhealthy circumstances. But the truth is, if we are able to keep in mind the difficulties and obstacles that we have escaped, and feel a sense of appreciation for having avoided their presence, we have increased the positive and reduced the influence that those problems could have had in our hearts, minds and lives.
We can never have too much gratitude in our lives. It is such a wonderful thing to see every situation through the eyes of thankfulness. And once we begin to see things around us through this lens, even the pain and the suffering, the difficulties and the hardships, begin to have a deeper meaning and hold powerful potential for growth in our lives.

How grateful are you? You know, life is made up of a series of todays. And the positive outlooks and attitudes we embrace can have just as much of an effect on the moments of our life as what actually happens in those moments. When we are able to change our perspective on the current day we are living, our perspective on life begins to shift as well, and we open ourselves up to new and exciting opportunities for growth and change, knowledge and understanding, and purpose and fulfillment.
Oprah Winfrey said, "Keep a grateful journal. Every night, list five things that happened this day that you are grateful for. What it will begin to do is change your perspective of your day and your life. If you can learn to focus on what you have, you will always see that the universe is abundant; you will have more. If you concentrate on what you don't have, you will never have enough."

In the cause of my life,I reaslied that there was always a "disconnect in my communication with others". They either misunderstood me or picked quarrels because of what I said through text message or word of mouth.
We depend so much upon words to express our desires and feelings, that rarely do we stop to consider just how ineffective those words tend to be. Not only do the intentions of our words get misunderstood, but often times they create conflict in our lives or the lives of others. Rarely do the words we speak capture the true feelings we wish to convey, and more often than not, come across quite differently than we had intended them to.
Because of this, I started practicing and developing the skill of using my words so that I can improve their effectiveness in properly expressing my thoughts and feelings.
Someone knows what I am talking about? All you need to do is start practicing and developing your skills of communicating your true thoughts.

There is no good reason not to be grateful, because the truth is, our happiness in life depends upon the attitudes we espouse. Once we recognize that we are the captains of our vessels, we also understand that no one else has the power or ability to ruin our day, unless of course, we give that power to them.
Others have tried to ruin my day before- they tried to sour my attitudes, my outlooks, my hopes, and my ambitions, and I let them.
Consequently, over the course of many bad days, I finally came to realize that my awful feelings were not a result of my actions, but of my reactions to those actions. In other words, I let others allow me to make my own days miserable.
It was not that the day was bad, or even that those individuals made the day bad, it was me. I let their words and actions affect the peace and serenity within me. So, as soon as I understood this truth, I deviced ways to avoid letting others determine my attitudes in life. You too can!

The purpose of life is joy! When you are joyful, you attract the highest and best in every area of your life. Joy increases to the exact degree that you deliberately increase your good thoughts, good words, and good actions. I have found out in my life that the easiest way to increase my joy is to religiously practice gratitude until I am a gratitude machine.

It is very important that we take the time to listen carefully, honestly, and genuinely, for it is in truly listening with our hearts that we come to discover that deep awareness.
The majority of us are quick to share our opinions, wisdom, and thoughts rather candidly, however, rarely do we listen without the intention of responding. It is by listening that we learn, and it is in the hearing that we grow.

I have seen people lose their enthusiasm for things that they love because of the discouragement of others. I have also seen people who never are satisfied with the work that they do because they constantly compare it to the work of others who are more talented than they are.
We are all unique individuals, with different talents and abilities. Therefore, it is important that we keep in mind the fact that though we may not have the greatest talent in a certain area, we can still enjoy the work that we do in another area, and we can still be very proud that we work to the limits of our talents, or even push those limits further to improve on our talents.
Let us encourage and provide nourishment to one another!

Every day of our lives, we have the choice to be authentic and act according to our true nature, or to act in some other way that is less genuine, less sincere, and less honest with ourselves and the world around us. But the doors of happiness and joy, grace and blessings, purpose and meaning, and so many other good and wholesome things, cannot be opened until we finally accept to live our authentic nature fully and passionately.
Listen, change seems to happen when you have abandoned the chase after what you want to be (or think you should be) and have accepted- and fully experience what you are!

"No day passes that I do not think about you Sir; and there are no right words to say how much you impacted my life. You valued me more than just your Music Producer. Every moment with you was a whole new experience. I will have to learn to live with the memories. Till We Meet Again." I-FEE

If we want our habits to build us up instead of causing us harm- to make our lives richer and contribute to the world instead of making it poorer and taking from it- then we have to be in control of our habits. This requires us to be aware of our bad habits so that we can remove them, as well as choosing to actively foster healthy habits that become our friends and not our enemies--that help our lives and not sabotage them.
Adopt a habit today that will result in adding to the positive in the world.
When you live authentically, you may find that you develop an interconnected sense of being. When you are true to who you are, living your purpose and giving of your talents to the world around you, you give back in service what you came to share with others -your spirit - your essence. The rewards for sharing your gift with those close to you is indeed rewarding, much more if it were to be the eyes of a stranger who can appreciate what you have done to them.

Two men look out through the same bars: One sees the mud, and one sees the stars."- Frederick Langbridge, A Cluster of Quiet Thoughts
If you came second in a writing contest, will you jump for joy and push for better results the next time or will you be discouraged and find an excuse not to join again?
When I was in secondary school, I was among the six that was to represent the school In a writing contest. I was shocked that I was picked because the other five were the best students. So I started practicing until I was confident enough to represent the school. It was from that very moment that I discovered my writing skills. We did not win the competition, but then I did not give up- I kept on practicing.
In life, we are always faced with choices. You may choose to have a pessimistic view about your situation and live a self-defeated life or you may choose to be optimistic and win!
HONOUR YOUR STRENGTHS
What are your positive traits? What special talents do you have? List three - if you get stuck, ask those closest to you to help identify them. Are you imaginative, witty, good with your hands? Find ways to express your authentic self through your strengths. You can increase your self-confidence when you can share what you know to others.
We hear, read about, attend seminars on how we could grow our businesses, but how many of us put that same effort to grow our hearts- which is actually the real us? You cannot expect your business to grow without making efforts to research and find better ways to actually see that it grows and gets better than it was when you started. Likewise, you cannot expect to experience changes and transformations without making efforts- research, read books, seek true spiritual help to really ensure that your heart grows to become a best you!
We are spiritual creatures, and as such, it is important that we allow our spirits to grow and flourish, that we allow ourselves to take healthy risks that challenge who we are today, that we allow ourselves to feel compassion, empathy, and oneness with others and open ourselves up to them even if there is a chance that it might not turn out as we would like it to. Even if our bodies become static, our spirits are meant to be dynamic- ever growing, ever expanding, ever changing, ever blooming. And our spirits are created to be strong and resilient- even when risks do not turn out as we hoped they would, our spirits can learn and grow from taking them.
Grow your heart- allow your spirit to expand and learn from the many lessons available in your life.

LIVE FROM THE INSIDE OUT
Increase your awareness of your inner wisdom by regularly reflecting in silence. Commune with nature. Breathe deeply to quiet your distracted mind. The world is so busy which most times makes it difficult for one to enjoy some peace and quiet; but you can always find some peace in the quietness of your home- that is if you have peace and quietness in your home. Yet, you should always find a place to enjoy some quietness. In my case, I often just sit in a dimly lit room and play some classical music. There's sound, yes, but music does soothe the savage beast.
There is no loneliness if one is satisfied with oneself. How true!
Loneliness is an affliction manifested from our inability to lovingly accept ourselves and be satisfied with who we are. This means that our ability to give and receive love begins internally- with a strong and healthy self-love. Therefore, if we cannot love ourselves, we will also be unable to love others; and because of our lack of understanding of what we need in terms of love, or perhaps even from the walls we may have put up from the absence of love, others cannot love us, which leads to loneliness and dissatisfaction with ourselves and our lives.
However, you must also know that loneliness is not necessarily the result of being alone- solitude can be one of the most important, valuable, and fulfilling times of our days. And if we focus on the positive aspects of being alone- discernment and insight, growth and development, understanding and acceptance, peace and serenity, renewal and relaxation- then those moments become nourishment to our souls, and we discover that self-satisfaction is available to us even when we are alone.

KNOW YOUR PASSIONS
You know who you are and what you truly enjoy in life. Obstacles like doubt and lack of enthusiasm will only hinder you, but will not derail your chance to become the person you ought to be. Express yourself and honor the people who has inspired you to become the very person you wanted to be.

KNOW YOUR NEEDS
Unmet needs can keep you from living authentically. Take care of yourself. Do you have a need to be acknowledged, to be right, to be in control, to be loved, to be successful in your area of assignment, to touch lives through your GOD-GIVEN gifts etc? There are so many people who lived their lives without realizing their dreams and most of them end up being stressed or even depressed for that matter. List your top four needs and get them met before it's too late!

2. Know your values
What do you value most? Make a list of your top 5 values. Some examples are security, freedom, family, spiritual development, learning and so on. As you set your goals for 2017 - check your goals against your values. If the goal does not align with any of your top five values - you may want to reconsider it or revise it.
The number should not discourage you, instead it should motivate you to do more than you have ever dreamed of.

There are many ways to lose your sense of self-esteem and I am not going to talk about them, what's important to me is to find better ways you can improve on yourself and maintain your self worth. So I did a research and found out some amazing ways that you could become a better you! I will be dishing these points out every day. It surely is worth it! Here goes:
1. Know your purpose
Are you wandering through life with little direction - hoping that you'll find happiness, health and prosperity? Identify your life purpose or mission statement and you will have your own unique compass that will lead you to your truth north every time.
This may seem tricky at first when you see yourself in a seemingly hopeless situation. But there's always that little light that's shining, and that could be all you need to make a big difference in your life. 😊
