Every second is an opportunity

We all have that one feeling
"...the greatest demotivation of a man are his defective pasts"There is a time in everyone's life where it seems as though there is no hope. These times, decisions are even more difficult to take; daily plans looks worthless and cumbersome.

We are usually so much thoughtfully engaged with the past that we pay little or no attention to what lies ahead of us.

I have noticed that the greatest demotivation of a man are his defective pasts. He rules out plans and almost never keep to them; he makes promises which he scarcely fulfills; and makes decisions he never carries out. Most times, not because he is unwilling to keep them but because he is fallible by nature.

 Believe me, each time he attempts to make another plan, promise or decision; he is caged by his past.
One way or another, we must have had this feeling of unworthiness and ineptitude. 

This feeling out of the many thieves of time, is the greatest of them all.

5 Secrets of Early Risers

Image
Many times, people have tried to elude the reality of being up early enough to begin the day's work; most often, giving illustrations and examples of celebrities who do not always wake up in time. Mind you, they have figured out what's best and works for them. Kathryn Schulz, an American journalist, explained that the reason for her late night rest and wake time was as a result of the writing triggers that comes late nights at about 10 pm, leaving her to rest at the early morning hours.
Also, Aaron Winsor Levie, the cofounder and CEO of cloud company Box says he wakes up at 10 am—even at that, admitted it was not a best practice. Everyone, therefore should have his/her reason and know what's best for them.

Here are 5 secrets of early risers dedicated to those who have known that being out of bed early enough is best for them, and are eager to know the secrets behind rising early.

Build yourself up for the future

Every time wasted doing irrelevant things is a potential risk to one's future.  Time is too short to waste on unnecessary doings. It is foolish to spend a whole day playing video games, It is ludicrous to chat with friends throughout the day without ceasing, It is also of extreme stupidity to lurk the internet all day without any aim of attaining knowledge. Be wise! 
Be very careful, then, how you live--not as unwise but as wise, making the most of every opportunity, because the days are evil. – Ephesians 5:15-16.
You always say you will have a great future, you are grandiose about what you do not know and have not seen, and all you do is sleep all daylong and give excuses why you have not done what you ought to have done. Haven’t you heard what the Bible says 
A little sleep, a little slumber, a little folding of the hands to rest and poverty will come on you like a thief and scarcity like an armed man — Proverbs 24:3. 

I’ll do it just immediately, there is just not enough time,  T…

6 Reasons you don't get the most of yourself 2

YOU ARE COMFORTABLE WITH VERY LITTLE:


A great number of persons live below their potentials because they are so comfortable with the very little they have.
I have heard great people say that success is the enemy of success, this I have blindly argued until I realized it was true. People who think they have made it because of the money, cars or houses they have acquired overtime, are most likely to be affected with the disease of complacency.
It is good to be satisfied with the little you have; these words should not proceed from the mouth of persons who are not willing to work because of what they already have, but only from people who still continue to work hard regardless of what they already have. That’s true satisfaction!
Check out the world’s richest men, you will always notice a similar trait in them all. One of the traits is their great discomfort for just little.

Bill Gates net worth was $315 million in 1986; in the preceding year, he had made more than three times that amount…

6 REASONS YOU DON’T GET THE MOST OF YOURSELF.

After much research and study, I came up with these six possible reasons you don't get the most of yourself.

YOU PROCRASTINATE:


We are humans and most times, we get comfortable and confident with the words, “I will do it later, that’s for sure.” It is shamelessly true that only one out of ten persons will fulfill their self promise. I hope you are not part of the nine. I sure trust you.


Every man on earth has 24 hours of time each day. It is really very astonishing how two different people might view this time and make use of it. Now I must be sincere, sometime in my life, I had wished the whole time of the day can be doubled i.e 48 hours a day, but it will never be possible. But the good news is, you can make the best of the little time you have. Here are 10 simple steps to make the most of everyday by Joshua Becker.


If you’d give me an opportunity to describe you, I will describe you based on how well you make use of your time. Don’t …

What I wish I knew earlier about success 2

CREATE QUALITY RELATIONSHIP:
There is no one who has made it today that made it all alone. A number of persons must have been an integral part of his or her success, there is no doubt to that.
The greatest but subtle treasure that is on earth are the friends you keep and your family as a whole. They encourage you when you need to be encouraged; they protect you even in your absence. Think about them, they are numerous.
Imagine that Bill Gates childhood friends knew he’d be great. How close would they have been with him? It shouldn’t be surprising that he had met a whole lot of people in his life who ignored him instead.
I treat people in my life as though they are already great. I tell them of the best I see in them. It is true that you may not always have the opportunity to hear from them daily, but make the little moments of hearing or being together with them worth it.
I can remember the good things people did to me years before today. Don’t you think people will have in mind also …

What I wish I knew earlier about success

Success  is not a gift, it is a prize given when a price is paid for. Here are some things to anticipate early enough so as to be successful.

THOUGHTS :

The way you think goes a long way in determining how well and far you will go.
 I remember a time when I told my friend these words,"You will be great, you'd have so much money that you can decide to get anything of your choice". The reply I got was alarming. Here are his words, "I don't want such money".
I was really disturbed about what he had said and just immediately, I had an insight as to why people will not make it above average.
Joel Osteen once said, "You will never go beyond the barriers in your own mind. If you think you can't do something, then you never will". THINK BIG AND POSITVE.


SET GOALS:
Thoughts end in thoughts if there comes nothing after it. Dreams remain dreams until death if plans are not ruled out for its achievement. Now that you know, what ways can you plan to achieve …
