REFLECTION


When you keep making the same mistakes over and over, and you keep saying, "you know I'm not perfect", that's the devil beating the drums of destruction for you and you're ignorantly dancing to it! That's why people ain't getting any better or even make efforts to get better! 

We must learn to take responsibilities for our actions/mistakes, accept that we're wrong, learn from it and determine to get better- that's the only way to walk in CHRIST'S perfection! Here's what our LORD JESUS said in Matthew 5:48, " You therefore must be perfect, as your heavenly Father is perfect." 

So, stop believing those lies. That's part of the devil's tricks to keep you down in his claws for life. Don't allow it! Determine to be perfect just like JESUS!

Stay blessed!

YOUR EMOTIONS AND YOU.


Even if all the outer aspects of our lives seem wonderful, our emotions can still cause us to feel unhappy. Memories of events that caused us great distress can stifle our development. Negative thought habits can fill us with feelings of frustration and powerlessness. Negative self-talk can cause us to sabotage any goals we set.

Emotions can be a tricky thing to understand, but it becomes easier when we consider that our emotions are fueled by our thoughts.

If we THINK negatively about ourselves, we will FEEL badly about ourselves. If we focus on the negative in our lives, our lives will seem to have a negative theme. Whatever we focus on the most determines how we feel. Even if everyone around you is emotionally down or having a bad day, you can choose to stand out by being emotionally strong and happy. It all depends on what you allow your mind to think.


For instance, someone steps on your toes when you were having a really good day; do you start cursing the person or would you rather have a more kind approach towards the situation at hand? Believe it or not, your attitude tends to attract most of your experiences, feeling negative will continue to attract more rude and inconsiderate people into your day while feeling positive will attract more friendly and considerate people in your day.


It may seem like a difficult thing to control your anger when it's ignited, but with practice it gets easier. I'm talking from experience. Rather than internalizing the things that happen to you, especially things you can’t control, simply let go of them and keep your emotional balance. If you pay attention to how you feel throughout the course of your day, you will become aware of whether your thoughts are negative or positive. Then you can simply choose to release your negative thoughts and replace them with positive thoughts – which will make you feel better. Again, it takes consistent effort to fully master this technique.

SUCESS IS A JOURNEY!


If there is one thing I've learned in life, it is the understanding that success is a journey, not a destination. It is not about what you do, but WHO you become through the achievement of your dreams.

Success is a process of letting go of perceived limitations, growing and developing as unique individuals, believing in our true potential, honoring the best parts of ourselves and letting the world know who our source is- GOD. 

Believe it or not, the mind is where all the issues of life and events are birthed. In this journey to success, most of the process, if not all, takes place in our very own minds. 

Listen dear friend, nature has designed it that you are successful; you've always had the potential to be successful, you just need to believe it and embrace it! So what are you waiting for? Let's get started!!!! 

SO, WHAT'S YOUR POINT OF VIEW?


 "Two men look out through the same bars: One sees the mud, and one sees the stars."- Frederick Langbridge, A Cluster of Quiet Thoughts.

Way back during my secondary school days, I was among the six students that got picked to represent my school in an English Essay Writing Competition. Truth be told, I was the least among the rest when it came to having excellent grades, not only in English, but in all the subjects. I actually wondered why I was picked, but I guess the teachers saw in me what I couldn't see in myself then. Rather than shy away from the challenge, I saw it as an opportunty to improve in my essay writing; and even though we didnt win the price, I made an excellent grade in English Language during our final examinations.

So my point is, in life, we have choices; and we either have a pessimistic view and live a self-defeated life or decide to be optimistic and take a challenging and fulfilled life.

So why nurture an optimistic point of view? And why now?

Research has shown that, optimism has been linked to positive mood and good morale; to academic, athletic, military, occupational and political success; to popularity; to good health and even to long life; and freedom from trauma and every negative situation. 

On the other hand, the rates of depression and pessimism have never been higher.

It is true that the challenges could be so overwhelming, but wouldn't you rather see the best in every situation than see the worst?
The truth is, optimists are confronted with the same harsh challenges, but what differs is the way they see their challenges. They believe that defeat is just a temporary setback, and focus on ways to solve the problem or even see the experience as an opportunity to learn and grow. They never say never. They believe that things will get better.

People respond positively to positive minded people. Their optimistic view of the world can be contagious and influence those they are with.

When the going gets tough, optimists get tougher! So what's your point of view??

GETTING TO KNOW YOURSELF


Getting to know yourself can blast through any negative preconceptions you may be persistently entertaining in your thoughts or mind. Remember, your self-image is usually based on the conclusions you formed from your past experiences. For instance, you may hold a belief that you are not a good writer, or you’re not a “people person”, or that you don’t have any special skills, but is that really true? How do you know for sure?

Please don’t say, “Because I tried it once and I sucked at it.” Trying something once or only a few times should not discourage you. You only need to make up your mind to succeed. 

The truth is, you can become good or even great at anything if you truly want it and are willing to never give up. 

My question is: Do you really want to get “there”? Getting to know yourself helps you separate what you really want from what others expect of you.

REFLECTION


Will you live a life controlled by random thoughts or will you choose your thoughts carefully to develop a success mindset?

When you get a hold of your thoughts you have the power to create wonderful things in your life, all by just taking command, training and instructing your mind to think properly. 

WHEN YOU THINK POSITIVELY


Positive thinking will only work for you if you are willing to work at it. The truth is, it is not an easy discipline. It takes the HOLY SPIRIT inside of you and of course your hard believe in GOD. 

Positive thinking takes honest living, and a strong desire to succeed. For Positive thinking to work for you, you must continue to work at it to achieve the desired success. Don't stop learning. Keep learning and relearning.
