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.

LET LIFE FLOW THROUGH US.


We must let Life flow through us, and allow it to express itself naturally. Do not let the little worries of life, or the big ones either, depress you and cause you to lose your vitality. Assert the Life Force within you, and manifest it in every thought, act and deed, and before long you will be exhilarated and fairly bubbling over with vitality and energy.

It is astonishing how much interest we may find in the ordinary things of life if we will only wake up. There are interesting things all around us - interesting events occurring every moment - but we will not be aware of them unless we assert our life force and begin to actually live instead of merely existing.

STRONG DESIRE - CONFIDENT EXPECTATION - COURAGE IN ACTION


Why should anything be too good for you? Did you ever stop to think just what you are? You are a manifestation of the Whole Thing, and have a perfect right to all there is. Or, if you prefer it this way, you are a child of the Infinite, and are heir to it all. You are telling the truth in either statement, or both. At any rate, no matter for what you ask, you are merely demanding your 
own. And the more in earnest you are about demanding it - the more confident you are of receiving it - the more will you use in reaching out for it - the surer you will be to obtain it.

Strong desire - confident expectation - courage in action - these things bring to you your own. But before you put these forces into effect, you must awaken to a realization that you are 
merely asking for your own, and not for something to which you have no right or claim.

FOOD FOR THOUGHT


It could be that all your life, you’ve always been the one giving and taking care of other people and now you feel tired and drained.  It could be time to ask yourself if time has come for the meaning of your life to change from giving to being able to receive. This will go a long way to save you from going into depression. To be a great giver, you must be an excellent receiver. That's how it works.

REFLECTION


There is nothing small about our GOD, and when we understand GOD we will find out that there ought not to be anything small about us. We must have an enlargement of our conception of GOD, then we will know that we have come to a place where all things are possible, for our  GOD is an OMNIPOTENT GOD for impossible situations.

Thursday, 6 July 2017

FOOD FOR THOUGHT


I've come to realise that people applaud to stupid and irrelevant statements or stuff (maybe because it favours them), but when something serious and matters that touch the heart, or when a great work is shared, they ignore it. So, to someone out there working hard and feeling that no one is seeing you,  trust me, the whole world is seeing you and most importantly, GOD sees you, and in HIS beautiful time, HE will reward you. Stay on course, GOD NEVER SLEEPS!

Tuesday, 4 July 2017

REFLECTION


Keep trusting GOD even when you cannot see the way. Keep on believing when there’s no one else to cheer you on. Keep on hoping and dreaming, even when your way seems blocked, and you have waited for so long.  Carry on, drop by drop your cup shall overflow. Inch by inch you'll walk the mile. Do not be impatient for the day, because it will surely come, and MUST give way to the man who knows what he truly desires.

DO NOT GET TIRED OF HOPING.


There are times in your life when all that you could do is rest. You find it difficult to love, dream- you don’t know where to start, and you don’t know where to go. You want to change your life, but you’re too weak to move, too tired to think, too hurt to heal, too numb to make amends, too lost to Hope and too tired to even pray. 

Let your heart and soul rest on GOD'S love for you, for the journey has been too much for you, and the world has left you wounded and alone. Let go of all your woes. Lie down in trust and in the arms of HIM who loves you most. Allow GOD to fill you with HIS joy.

GOD is watching and HE sees everything you are going through. Do not think about your worries and hurts, because in the time when you shall find comfort and peace, you will enjoy the healing that your soul deserves!

QUOTE FOR THE DAY


THE UNSEEN GOD

Have you ever wondered why GOD is invisible? Why can’t I just see HIM or even hear HIM? Wouldn’t it have been better to be able to hear exactly what HE wants me to do with my life? You ask. But then again, do you really want that to happen?

The truth is that GOD is not invisible! HE is only invisible because we want HIM that way. We don’t want GOD meddling in our affairs or even showing HIS approval or disapproval in what we do. We want independence and freedom. We want to be apart from GOD!

Yet is GOD really apart from us? Not at all. GOD is watching us ever more closely, though we go about doing things on our own making it difficult for us to recognise HIS presence. But in moments when we can’t take it anymore, in those moments in our lives when we’ve done all we could and achieved everything we felt like achieving and still felt empty, GOD is still there, ready to listen and to take us back. All we need is to approach the unseen GOD so we can finally see clearly the meaning of our lives!

REFLECTION


GOD often closes the wrong doors for us so that we may enter the right one- even though the wrong doors may have lingered so much so that you've become comfortable with the pains and disappointments.

Hence, those rejections and disappointments may indeed be (are mostly) blessings in disguise that you should be thankful for!

DO YOU KNOW WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU DON’T LOVE YOURSELF ENOUGH?


When you don’t love yourself enough, it comes with a lot of consequences, such as; 
you allow people to mistreat you and to continue to mistreat you;
you try to please other people feeling it’s your obligation, not because you want to;
you feel suspicious when people treat you well or become extra-generous;
you feel that it’s your fault when things go wrong;
you pity yourself easily when someone criticizes you;
you don’t feel comfortable when you look at yourself in the mirror;
you allow people to think that it is tolerable to abuse other people;
you find it hard to receive love;
you become prone to depression and hopelessness;
you sabotage your own success because you believe you don’t deserve it. 

You know, at first glance, it might seem that this lack of love  isn’t so harmful in our relationship with others.  But how could we even have a basis for loving other people when we can’t even love ourselves? By which standards are we going to treat them when we can’t even treat ourselves well?  When we don’t love ourselves enough, we also lose the capacity to love other people.

FOOD FOR THOUGHT


Before you could attain true healing, you must first recognize your wounds. Before you could rebuild your sense of worth, you must first acknowledge how broken it really is.

WORD FOR THE DAY


Maybe you are trapped between your approaching enemies and a dead-end leading only to a vast open sea, definitely hope is almost nil.  But if you could still pray and believe that even there, in that hopeless situation, GOD can save you and make a way, you have already achieved victory and much courage.  And even the seas will be parted to make way for your faith!

Fall seven times, stand up eight.

WHAT IS THE MEANING OF YOUR LIFE RIGHT NOW?


Many times, it isn’t the difficulty we’re experiencing that truly matters, but the meaning we’re able to give to whatever it is we’re going through.

What is the meaning of your life right now?  If you are hurting, what meaning could you possibly give to your sufferings?  If you are joyful, what meaning have you found in your happiness?

It could be that you’ve just lost someone you really loved, and this grief is saying that the meaning of your life right now is called LETTING GO.

It could be that you’ve been hurt so bad by someone who was supposed to protect you, and thus the meaning of your present days could be one of FORGIVENESS.

It could be that you’re pursuing a dream, but its fulfilment seem so far away and the only word you could hold on to right now is PERSEVERANCE.

It could be that you’ve tried everything to solve a problem but every path still seems to be blocked.  If so, the meaning of your life at the moment could be called HOPE.

It could be that you’ve spent your whole life trying to build something, but in one moment a catastrophe happens and destroys everything you’ve ever built.  And thus the meaning of your life could be called STARTING OVER.

REFLECTION


GOD blesses us all and provides for our needs differently.  To some HE gives material blessings, to others, spiritual strength.  When we need some form of support, GOD sometimes sends us people who would be channels of His grace. 

Sometimes, it is GOD Himself who directly gives it to us- even though we may feel it isn't enough and of course, HE has a reason for everything, and surely makes all things beautiful in HIS time. 

So during such times, should I ever think I have received less?  Or do I praise GOD for giving me Himself and personally taking care of me?

WEEKEND HEALTH TIP


Be conscious on how much salt you take in- during snacks and meals. The table salt is sodium chloride which is widely used as flavor enhancer. High sodium intake is a risk factor for diseases like high blood, heartburn, osteoporosis and other cardiovascular diseases. 

Limit sodium intake by just reducing your consumption of salty foods without taking the option of salt substitutes. Have a restful weekend.xoxo

SOME TIPS TO STAY HAPPY THIS WEEKEND AND ALWAYS.........



Be grateful. Being grateful is a great attitude and as they say, a grateful heart is a happy heart. So stop sulking and be grateful for all you have. We have so much to be thankful for, if not for anything, thank GOD for being alive, thank your spouse for being so amazing; because a living dog is better than a dead lion. 

News is stressful. Get less of it. Some people just can't start their day without their daily dose of news. Try and think about it, 99% of the news we hear or read is bad news. Starting the day with bad news does not seem to be a sensible thing to do.

Manage your time.

Laugh and laugh heartily everyday. Heard a good joke? Tell your spouse, friends or family about it. As they also say -'Laughter is the best medicine'.

Be kind; and try not to keep pent up anger of frustrations, this is bad for your health. Instead find ways of expressing them in a way that will not cause more injury or hurt to anyone.

Accomplishments are necessary for all of us, they give us a sense of value. Work on things that you feel are worthy of your time.

Learning is a joyful exercise. Try and learn something new everyday. Learning also makes us expand and broaden our horizons. And could also give us more opportunities in the future. 

Feel alive by doing the things that your body's made for.

Avoid exposure to negative and toxic people as well as toxic environment.

These are the few simple things you can do everyday to stay happy. 

And always remember the quote from Abraham Lincoln, he says that, "Most people are about as happy as they make up their minds to be." 

Happy weekend.... And stay away from trouble!

WHAT I LEARNED ABOUT THE REDWOOD TREES""


I learned a great lesson today about the redwood trees, so I thought I should share it. I learned that though the redwood trees are some of the tallest trees in the world, they do not have especially deep roots, which consequently if alone, would be in great danger of falling over. 

However, what thrilled me was the fact that redwoods tend to grow close to one another, and under the soil their roots bind together, adding strength and support so that even when faced with storms, the roots tighten around each other, making redwood forests some of the most steadfast in the world. 

Here's the moral lesson; you cannot survive alone, you cannot succeed alone. You need covenant relationships and alignment with one another to achieve such solidarity, to excel in life no matter how good you are at what you do! 

Like the redwood trees, find yourself a great support system! Do not let anyone  or your mind deceive you into thinking that you don't need anyone's help! That's a lie!

Your life is right now! It's not later! It's not in that time of retirement. It's not when the lover gets here. It's not when you've moved into the new house. It's not when you get the better job. Your life is right now. It will always be right now. You might as well decide to start enjoying your life right now, because it's not ever going to get better than right now-until it gets better right now!

WEEKEND HEALTH TIP


Vitamin C is an essential part of any healthy diet, not only due to its positive effects on the immune system, but also because of its impact on our psychological well-being.

Research on ascorbic acid has shown that it can balance the levels of hormones in our body, and ensure that stress hormones are only present when absolutely necessary. 

A strong immune system is also important in the management of stress, as illness and fatigue can increase anxiety significantly. Fortunately, there is nothing better than vitamin C when it comes to boosting our body’s defenses.

FOOD FOR THOUGHT


A man can only rise, conquer, and achieve by lifting up his thoughts. On the other can help can remain weak, abject and miserable by refusing to lift up his thoughts. 

Anyone willing to learn is on the pathway to life; anyone refusing, has lost his chance.

REFLECTION


A good disposition is a very important attribute to enjoying a happy life. It is the only way that you can get along with people. 

It is a law of nature that if a person projects a belligerent attitude wherever he goes, people will respond in one of the two ways: Avoid him or answer him back with a belligerent attitude. On the other hand, if a person projects a kindly attitude wherever he goes, people will like him and project back a kindly attitude. Which would you rather choose? I choose to continue to have a good disposition.

KNOW YOURSELF


One of the first steps you must take in your quest to developing your personality is to know yourself- discover who you are. 

It is very important to know yourself in order to figure out what needs to be done to modify your existing personality. 

Knowing yourself is not about knowing your favorite color, food and etc. It is about knowing your limitations and plus points. You must be aware of your abilities so that you can use them when the time comes. You must analyze yourself to be able to find out what it is that you lacking as well as ways to get better.

Are you short tempered or do you panic easily or maybe you find it difficult to speak in a group? You must identify your struggles and learn better ways to break out of your limitations.

FOOD FOR THOUGHT


It is not just looks that are important and that define who you are. Personality defines who you are and how you respond in various situations. It is essential to focus on the personality, which matters the most.

BE CONSCIOUS OF WHAT YOU EAT AND DRINK!


Sodas, coffee, energy drink and alcohol drinks contain a lot of calories. It concentrates more on making your belly fats bigger. Whenever you feel thirsty, the cheapest and most helpful for your body is to grab a glass of water or diluted freshly squeezed juice instead.

Junk foods literally mean useless! It does no good at all to your body. It is high in sodium, calories and a lot of chemical ingredients to attract Buyers with the artificial flavoring. Instead of buying junk food for snacks, substitute it with nutritious fruits and vegetables! 😀 Happy New Month Friends... xxx

BELIEVE IN YOURSELF!!!!



If you want to accomplish your goals and become successful in life, you have to believe in yourself.  Someone said something today that I really took to heart- that no one can encourage you but you.  As much as that is true, if you are with someone who does not believe in your dreams because you failed a couple of times, then you are most likely to lose it! 

So firstly, you must believe in yourself and see the possibilities of your dreams coming true. You may not know how, but your belief will take you to where your heart has imagined - even if it is beyond the sky. 

All successful men and women today are doing well because they believed in themselves ( when no one else did) and were confident about their capabilities. If you believe in yourself, then you can accomplish the goals you have set for yourself.
