A Few Things I’ve Learned So Far
The day you decide to be whom you really are and to purse
your dreams is the day you begin to unravel the mystery
behind your existence. Things are never easy at first but
each experience sharpens you, makes you stronger and
makes you determined to want to succeed and move higher
When you are comfortable, you never think about how to
make it. That dream of yours takes you out of your
comfort zone and it makes you realize what life truly is.
Some people may mock you; some may pity you, while others
may praise you. Be wise enough not to be carried away by
the praise and be wiser not to be discouraged by criticism
Don’t wait for opportunities because they might never
come. Develop yourself and create your own opportunities
because waiting for opportunities is like building a castle in
the air. Start small; don’t wait until your parents, your
family members, your friends, or the government gives you
money before you start planning on ways to actualize your
Humility and forgiveness are great attributes of great
men. Humility costs nothing actually, but it buys
everything and the only person that is expected to be proud
is that person that created his or herself. Humility opens
closed doors and makes way when there is no way. Humble
people make friends with meaningful people because they
know when to say thank you, are not too proud to say
sorry, and are willing to always stand their ground to
defend the truth.
Forgiveness frees us from guilt and allows us to interact
positively with other people. Watch out for people who find
it hard to forgive others because they don’t see themselves
realistically. They are either arrogant, insecure or believe
that hanging onto a grudge is satisfying.
Those who do not forgive are hurting themselves more than
they are hurting others. When hurt, forgive as quickly as
possible so that you can free yourself from guilt, worry
and unnecessary loads.
Failure has an explanation, and Success also has an
explanation. The explanation for failure is often an
EXCUSE, and the explanations for success are KEYS,
PRINCIPLES and TIPS.
Nobody appreciates, understands, cherishes or cares to
listen to the explanation of failure because they
understand that failure, coupled with its explanation
‘Excuse”, cannot produce the result they had always
wanted which is SUCCESS.
People are ready and willing to pay to hear the explanation
of SUCCESS or perhaps spend their money, energy and time
to read the books of successful people. FAILURE in itself is
not bad, but including an excuse makes it worse.
When you fail, propose in your heart to be better, add that
extra effort and believe in yourself that you can make it
rather than telling stories to make up for your failures.
The world is waiting for your SUCCESS tips.
There are four laws every successful man follows:
The Law Of Accountability:
If you have money and you don’t sit down to plan well on how you would spend the money, you will end up spending it on things you do not need, or on things of less importance.
The Law Of Becoming:
You cannot become something in life until you first become it in your mind.
The Law Of Money:
You get more money for problems solved and value exchanged.
The Law Of Sowing:
You cannot have a harvest unless you sow, you cannot get more money unless you are ready to invest the money you have with you.
These laws look simple, but they work wonders when you
