Food For Thought

Opportunity always comes disguised as hardwork but God never shuts one door but He opens another.Life's great opportunities often open on the road of daily duties.You must keep enduring, day after day, never turning back and you will be successful.
Mark R.Douglas

Be Courageous And Act -Part 1

Action requires courage but action also develops courage. You can be successful only if you have the will to forgive, dare to walk by faith, have the ability to gather information rapidly, yet thoroughly and Act. George Clemenceau said," A man who likes to be convinced to act is not a man of action. Do you see the tennis player before returning the ball begin to question himself as to the physical and moral value of tennis? You must act as you breathe". Don't wait to get prompted before you act. Seize the opportunity and act fast. Oliver Wendell holmes,jr.said,"Life is action and passion.therefore it is required of a man that he should share the passion and action of his time at the peril of being judged not to have lived". Make big plans and act on them.

Your road to success requires planning. You must make plans, think about them, act on them. Action is an essntial to success as th motor and fuel are to the auto. But results arre the only excuse for activity. We must know why we are acting and act towards the fulfilment of of our goal. Andrew Carnegie said that"Knowledge is power". It may become a power only when it is organized and expressed in terms of definite action.Knowledge is not power but the appropriation and use of other men's knowledge and experience for the attainment of some definite purpose is power." Knowledge is only a potential power. A chinese proverb says," Journey of a thousand miles begins with a step." But in what direction? Plan your direction. When the goal is clear,the purpose is strong,the step will be decisive, assertive and forceful. Direction and determination decides destiny

Quote Of The Week

There is no short cut to achievement. There are many who would think that the only way to excel is by pull or by fraud or by someone in a high place recommending you. Even if you get the position, you can't hold it unless you have mastered the principles of success; unless you know the field thoroughly; unless you can match any and everybother man of equal position not only in your firm, but among all competitors as well.Actually, pull may be the worst thing that could happen to a young man trying to succeed.It can destroy.
Dale Carnegie

Food For Thought

There are three types of people in this world: those who make things happen, those who watch things happen and those who wonder what happened. We all have a choice. You can decide which type of person you want to be. I have always chosen to be in the first group.

Effective Time Management

The way you use your time determines everything that happens to you in life.The first step in managing your time effectively and taking control of your life is setting priorities. High achievers are adapt at separating the essential from the non-essential.Always commit yourself to completing each task on your list by a specific date and time. The way to make your list more effective is to set aside time to do each task in a planning diary that is broken down into half-hour increments. It is also a good idea to keep a list of your top items on your work desk. This way, if you get tied up for hours, you can glance at your list to see if it is something that should be taking up a lot of your time. If you don't have a constant reminder of things you want to get done, they arrn't going to get done.The ability to stay focused plays a major role in saving time. Staying focused means being able to concentrate on one problem without being distracted or growing tired.Stop procastination,start now.

The Power of Self Image

Visualizing yourself as a success in your field of endeavor is the inside tip in accomplishing anything you want. If you can specifically imagine being the person you want to become, you will attain that reality.Do people make you anxious? Maybe you feel inferior, not as good as others. Everybody has feelings of inadequacy. Just turn them around into positive goals. You may be paralyzed by the thoughts that you are unattractive. It is your thoughts that make it a reality. Change your modes of behavior and you will make friends. In most cases, it is your own negative thoughts that cause you to stay stuck in whatever place you're in. Keep moving. Take the risks. You may need to change your job, or move to another city. You might take up a sport or hobby. Become active in your life - participate.Aim high and don't settle for an average life.You can be at the top if you image youself to be and work towards it's achievement. You will grow into the image you see for yourself.

Dominate Your Doubts

Doubts,one of the easiest thing to dominate but it's just so unfortunate people makeit so big and allow it to dominate them.Doubts are keen when they can lead us to evaluation but a great majority of us allow itrule us.You must admit your inadequacies to overcome doubts.Face the fact that you do not excel in everything.In the very process of admitting your inadequacies you dominate your doubts.A problem well stated is a problem half solved.You are important than the emotion of doubt.Remember that doubts are distructive.They tear up the peace,serenity and happiness of a man's life.Eliminate your doubts by speaking your your convictions.Knowledge and personality make doubt possible but knowledge is also a cure of doubt;and when we get a full and adequate sense of personality we are lifted into a region where doubts is almost impossible.for no man can know himself as he is,in all the fulness of nature,without also knowing God. Gain self-confidence by dominating your doubts.Only fools never have doubts but a wise man never yields to them.He brings them rigidly under control.Be a dictator over your doubts,that is ,Dominate them and you'll be successful.

Standing Out

Truth is never dependent upon consensus of opinion.The Bible say's in 1 peter 2:9 that you are a chosen generation,a royal priesthood,and holy nation...,Bearing this in mind will help you stand out.One of the greatest compliments that anyone can make is to say you are different.There should be something different about you.If there is nothing unique and differet about you then you need to evaluate your life.Don't be persuaded or dissuaded by group opinion,It does'nt make any difference whether anyone else believes ,you must believe.Never take direction of your personal life from the crowd and never choose to quit because somebody else disagrees with you.Just because somebody has gone a particular way and not succeded does not mean that you will fail.Beleive in your self and see yourself making it.

Dealing With Depression

Depression,that low feeling that puts one in a sober mood,can pose a danger to individual well being.Slight depressin does'nt last for long,it either goes away by itself or something pleasant happens to overke it and then we forget about the mood or what caused it and feel better.In trying to solve the problem,some turn to drugs for solace,specifically anti-depressant pills.Although,this pills sometimes help in the management of depression, it is not advisable that one relies on them.To know the cause of the depression,it is important to go over the various events, particulaly the negative ones, that has occured in our lives recently. For instance, could it have been due to recent loss of loved one, money or material? Or is it poor self esteem or unexpressed anger? Ability to identiy causes of depression,is like solving the problem half way, as it becomes easier to find lasting solution to them.

Our thoughts condition's our life that is why we should always base our thoughts on things positive.Even the Bible say's that "as a man thinketh in his heart,so is he".Here are what Charles.T.Jones describes as "Before And After Thoughts"
1.My best lesson's in life are not those teaching me new things so much as those
helping me unlearn some old things.
2.A sure fire growth formula ;Cram fifty years of failure into fifteen.
3.Life's largest challenge is not being a man's man but God's man
4.A company's goal should not be getting more men into their business or
getting more of their business into the man;the great challenge is to get more
man into a man.
5.A man is never a failure until he blames someone else.
6.It is not important thst everyone is like youbut it's very important that there
is someone just like you
7.Don't make your life trying to make right decisions,invest your life in making
decisions and make them right.

Winning;An Act

If you ask most people whether they would like to be considered a winner or a loser in life, they would most assuredly reply that they would like to be a winner. But this begs the question, "What does it mean to win at life?" Winning in a game is easy But it isn't quite as easy to decide what it means to win in the game of life, is it? And that is because people define winning in different ways. For many, winning is through the accumulation of money or material possessions. "He's a success, a real winner," they say. All of these are fine, in and of themselves. But... I would like to encourage us to think about winning or success in a different way. Generally, people think of winning as the over-achievement in a particular, chosen area. I like to believe, however, that to truly win at life is not to overachieve in one area but to succeed in maintaining balanced achievement in numerous areas.
Let me repeat that: To truly win, to be a success, is not to overachieve in one area, but to maintain balanced achievement in all areas of our lives.
For instance, is a person a success if they earn millions of dollars but lose their family? Is a person a success if they garner national fame but have no friends? Of course not. In fact, they may live the most pitiful of all lives. The spirit is the part of us that transcends this life, the part of us that communes with God. Zig Ziglar said, "Money will buy me a house, but not a home, a bed, but not a good night's sleep." So true.
Inner peace comes from something much deeper. Have you thought about going back to your spiritual roots? Are you able to spend time in quiet, solitude, and prayer from time to time? This is an extremely important area and all too often neglected. What would you like to achieve in this area? How would you define winning in these areas?
As we experience balance in these areas, we will find ourselves much more at peace with ourselves than if we were to experience tremendous success in one area but loss or failure in the other areas. We were designed to work as congruent, balanced people. This is how we get to the end of our lives and say, "I won."

On Personality

My dictionary tells me that personality is the "personal or individual quality that makes one person be different and act differently from another." Personality is "the total physical, intellectual and emotional structure of an individual, including abilities, interests and attitudes." Personality is the sum total of all of our qualities.Your character speaks most of your personality.Always put a smile on when dealing with people thereby creating a good lasting impression on them. Unfortunately, many people have forgotten that we can choose to smile and be pleasant or to frown and be rude and thoughtless. Regrettably, too many people make the wrong choice and, as a result, their personality makes them come across as someone we don't want as a friend or co-worker. There is only one opportunity to make a first impression and all of us instinctively make decisions or judgments about an individual within the first few seconds of crossing paths. With that in mind, I believe that when we teach our kids to smile, to be pleasant and cheerful, to be courteous and respectful of others, to pleasantly respond to requests or questions, we are helping them develop a personality that will open many doors for them. Once the doors are opened, only character will keep them open, so it's even more important to give that personality a character foundation.

Six Ways To Boost Your Self Esteem

Stop diminishing yourself with negative judgments.
You can't develop high self-esteem if you repeat negative phrases about yourself and your abilities.Nobody can make you inferior without your consent.
Give more of yourself to those around you.
When you do things for others, you are making a positive contribution and subsequently begin to feel more valuable, which, in turn, lifts your spirits and raises your own self-esteem.
Be true to yourself.
Live your own life - not the life others have decided is best for you.
If you're making decisions based on getting approval from friends and relatives, you aren't being true to yourself and your self-esteem will suffer as a direct consequence.
Solve problems.
Don't avoid problems, and don't complain about them.
Treat them as challenges and opportunities for growth.
Free yourself from "shoulds".
Live your life on the basis of what is possible for you and what feels right to you instead of what you or others think you "should" do.
Discover what you want and what you are good at and take actions designed to fulfill your potential.
And the most important of them all,
Take action!
You won't develop high self-esteem if you sit on the sidelines and avoid challenges.
When you take action - regardless of the result - you feel better about yourself.
When you fail to move forward because of fear and anxiety, you create frustration and dissatisfaction within yourself.
The 'real you' is a magnificent, unique being with enormous potential and capacity for experiencing self-love and extending that love to others.
As your self-esteem grows, this 'real you' emerges.You begin to take more risks without the fear of failure.You are no longer preoccupied with obtaining the approval of others; your relationships are much more rewarding; you pursue activities that bring you both joy and satisfaction; and you will make a positive contribution to the world.Most importantly, high self-esteem brings you peace of mind.When you're alone - you truly appreciate the person you're with - yourself.

Fear And Worry

Fear is a poor chisel to carve out tommorrow.Worry is simply the triumph of fear over faith.There's a story that is told about a woman who was standind on a street corner crying profusely.A man came to her and asked why she was weeping.The lady shook her head nd replied:"I was just thinking that someday i would get married.We would later have a beautiful baby girl.Then oneday this child and i would go for a walk along the street,come to this corner,and my darling daughter would run into the street,get hit by a car,and die."
Now that sounds like a pretty ridiculous situation-for a grown woman to be weepng her eyes out because of something that would probably never happen.Yet is't this the way we respond whenwhen we worry? We Take a situation or event which might never exist and build it up all out of proportion in our mind.There is an old swedish proverb that says"worry gives a small thing a big shadow." Worry is simply the misuse of God's creative imagination which he has placed within each of us.When fear rises in our mind,we should learn to expect the opposite in our life.
The word "worry" itself is derived from an anglosaxon trm meaning"to strangle" or "to choke off".There is no question that worry and fear in the mind does choke off the creative flow from above.Don't worry and don't fear .Instead,take your fear and worry to the lord,casting all your care upon him;for he careth for you
(1 pet.5:7).

Power Of Smiles

I believe that a sense of humour has been given to us as a natural mood-enhancer. At the same time, I believe that tears and the ability to cry has been given to us as a natural cleansing mechanism - an inner vacuum cleaner, so to speak. I believe that an emotionally healthy human being should be able to feel - to smile at a child running through mud, to cry with joy at their best friend's wedding, to let tears wash away the loss of someone or something held dear, to belly-laugh at a joke even if it happens not to be 100% politically correct, to smile with gratitude and to experience the joy of connecting with another.
As a society, it seems that we have shut down emotionally. Likely to protect ourselves from the effects of negativity on the news or the threat of yet another change. Smiles make the world go round. It seems to me that most (if not all) of us are craving the same things - love, compassion, connection, acknowledgment, or another form of human "feeling good". Even a simple smile can activate a lot of those things and connect people on a deep level. Just try it. And notice how YOU feel better, too.

Beyond Limitations

There are often temporary barriers or obstacles that block the view of one's true potential. Barriers might be self-limiting beliefs, fears of failure or success, discouragement from the past, or simply the need to take a well-deserved rest. They could also be disguised blessings that build strength and courage.
See Beyond Your Barriers - Refuse to allow barriers to limit your view of the possibilities available to you. To gain a wider vision, we need to consciously move beyond perceived limitations. It only takes one life and one small action to make a tremendous difference in our world.Don't focus on the fallen economy as many people do.
Narrow Your Focus - Begin by naming your limit. Then focus on one small action-possibility. What would be the first step you would need to take to out distance your best? What would it require of you to move closer to that promotion, complete that project, release a fear, or continue on the journey to your fondest dream?
Step Forward - When you feel that you've reached your limit, stop and think. Then, step out. Lighten your load, draw a new map, or take a different path. Take one more step.
That small step could eventually change many lives for the better. You'll find that your faith, vision, and resolve will allow you to fly than higher any limitations that stand in your way!

How Strong Is Your Foundation?

Buildings built a strong foundation have a higher chance of withstanding environmental factors, even earthquakes. Those built without a great foundation or much planning end up perishing completely at worst. As people, we need a strong foundation with strong pillars which, in my mind, are made up of health, relationships, finances, and work. These, in turn, must be strong. Strong health means strong physical, emotional, and mental health. It means being in that state now and it means working on maintaining that state. Everyone may come in contact with disease, but generally those with a stronger foundation of health will combat the disease faster, often even before you know you are sick. Building strong health includes working on a positive mental attitude, working out regularly, positive eating habits, regular time off work, and some form of spiritual work. This may include going to church, meditating or volunteer work to benefit others. Strong finances don't only mean a lot of immediate cash flow. It means good cash flow and the knowledge that if the cash flow stopped (due to injury, divorce, downsizing, changes in market conditions), there would be a cushion made up of insurance and income from various sources like businesses and investments. Strong finances are built for the short term as well as the long term. Strong relationships mean clean and happy, satisfying relationships with others. It has been proven that people with social interactions and married people, on average, live longer than those who are alone. Strong relationships mean that there are no outstanding issues with the people in your life. All family secrets have been dealt with, all the times that your spouse has left the toilet seat up have been forgiven and forgotten. Of course, it wouldn't be human to never have any disagreements, but it is human and possible to have such disagreements cleaned up quickly. Strong relationships feel great and provide an incredible opportunity for support when needed. Strong work environment, to me, includes a number of things.
How strong does the foundation need to be? What kind of a foundation does YOUR dream life need?

Self-Limiting Beliefs;The Inner Enemies Of Progress

Limitations are actually a thing of the mind. In reality we have none. You can do anything if you make up your mind to do it. Determination always finds a way around obstacles. Henry Ford once said, “If you think you can…. or if you think you can’t…you’re right!” It all depends on what you believe about yourself.Think big,believe in youself,work towards it and see yourself achieving it.Don't settle for an average life.Aim high.

How do they work?

Our thoughts and beliefs colour our vision and perception of the world. They determine our actions or inactions. Thoughts affect feelings. Feelings affect behaviour. Behaviour produces results (or the lack of them). It all begins with our thoughts, since we have to accept a thought for it to become a belief
What can I do about them?Fortunately, you can get rid of self-limiting beliefs. But first you have to identify them. They could be lurking in the recesses of our minds without our awareness. Talking with a friend or consulting with a coach could give you more objective feedback as to their existence.Once you have identified them, these limiting beliefs must be challenged every time they rear their heads. You must consciously reject any thought or suggestion that you are limited in any way. There is nothing you cannot do. You simply need to find the way and follow it to conclusion.When self-limiting thoughts are starved of attention, they wither and die. Whatever you give attention to magnifies: whatever you do not attend to shrivels up and dies. Jim Rohn says it aptly: “You cannot take the mild approach to the weeds in your mental garden. You have got to hate weeds enough to kill them. Weeds are not something you handle; weeds are something you devastate.”No one is better than you are. If others do better, it is simply because they have had more practise, more experience, and/or they know something that you don’t. And all this can be remedied. God made us equal. It’s what we build upon His initial investment that makes the difference.

The Value Of Intuitive Insight

It was not too long ago that all we knew of successful business persons was that they worked hard,intuition and "business" in the same conversation. Gut feelings and marketing seemed to be worlds apart with the divine injunction that "never the twain shall meet." Yet, most recent studies are showing that perhaps we've been missing something. Some of the most successful persons of all times have relied extensively on the intuitive nature of their being. Conrad Hilton, the founder of the Hilton chain of hotels claimed that he used his intuition to decide where and when to buy or build a hotel. Thomas Alva Edison, one of the greatest inventors of all times, would listen to his inner voice and produce more and better inventions. Today, there is an explosion of interest in the "mystical" area where everyone seems to be looking for ways and means to sharpen his or her intuition. Even with our economy booming, many are seeking to gain more control over their financial future. And yet, within all of us is the ability to stand aside from the mundane, everyday grind and to look at things in a different light.It is important to realize that your job or business is a true reflection of your internal condition--- an indication of where your mind is. To change things in your workplace, you must first start by changing things within yourself. Simple as this may appear, however, it is still a very difficult thing to do. It is not easy to break away from the hypnotic trance of everyday things and to make yourself stand aside for a short while. But if you were to practice this art of standing aside and "standing still" for a short time each day, you would find new insights into the way the world works. This will then make it easy for you to adjust and influence the outcome of business situations.This inner voice is within all of us and it whispers ever so gently. When we are surrounded by the noise of everyday problems, we tend not to hear the voice. Within us are all the answers to our problems. The questions are what we have not yet figured. Business success increases dramatically when we still the inner nature of our being. It is then that we hear more clearly the directions being given us. Our intuition becomes sharpened and our feeling nature, if we trust it, would lead us in the paths of peace and gain. Combine your intuitive nature with your logical thinking. Like everything else, it will take practice. Keep practicing and trust yourself and soon you will notice a whole new world of success opening up to you.


The Power Of Spoken Word

Spoken words are largely overlooked by many who think there is no power in it.In our tongue lies a great power which agrees to every word we utter.Be mindful of the things you say especially about yourself because many trapped in bad condition is as a result of what they have said.Say something nice even when the going gets tough,say something positive.Even the Bible also talks about the power of spoken word"In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God and the Word was God. All things were made by him; and without him was not anything made that was made" (John 1: 1,3)In a very sense, the quality of life you experience is directly related to the quality of the words you use. Are your words often cynical, harsh, abrasive or abusive? That is the quality of life that you will tend to manifest. Are your thoughts gentle, pure, tranquil, loving and filled with joy? That is the quality of life that you will enjoy. Your words follow your thoughts, and your thoughts manifest the world you live in. Hence, by monitoring your words and seeking to control them, you get a direct grip on what you mind is thinking and manifesting for you. It is the mind that creates your life experience, and you get a close-up look at what it is doing from focusing upon your habitual words - both to yourself and to other peopleSimilarly, we can use words to manifest extremely powerful effects in our lives. There are many ways to do so. As we have said, one effective way is to ensure that the majority of words you use on a daily basis are wholesome and helpful: the sort of words you would like the quality of your life to be patterned after.
Another way is in meditation. You can take a world like Peace, Love, Joy, Harmony, and repeat it slowly aloud to yourself, or in the silence in your mind. Do it slowly and resonantly, allowing the full vibration of the word to penetrate your mind and body and then surround you, thereby touching your life in all areas

Your Power To Decide

Decision is, by definition, behind every truly great achievement anyone ever makes. Most of the people who live to be a hundred actually DECIDED at some point in their life that they wished to live to a hundred. Most millionaires, at some earlier point in their life (often when they were heavily in debt), DECIDED that they were going to be millionaires. Interestingly, the most successful people make decisions quickly and change them slowly. They persist with the decisions they have made. However, failures are very slow to make any decision at all (most never make any), and they change the ones they have made very rapidly indeed. Which description applies to you?....It's not about making the "right" decision in the first place, but rather about making the decision you have made "right". If you wait to make the "right" decision, you could wait forever. If you make your decisions "right", this means that you work with the decisions you have made, adapting them as necessary to the situation at hand.You don't give up on the decision itself, although you may give up on a specific means of achieving it, and instead move towards another. Flexibility in the means of obtaining the outcome of your decision is okay. Flexibility in dumping your decisions the whole time is NOT.The Latin root of the word decision means "to cut off from all alternatives". This is what you should do when you decide. Don't leave yourself a life-raft so that you can give up later.Decide, and then act as if you could not fail. Interestingly, this attitude of mind attracts to you forces from the universe that are fully capable of supporting you and bringing your decision into manifestation. If you ask a lot from life, you will receive a lot. If you ask a little, that is what you will get. Interestingly, the universe has no favourites and does not care either way how much or how little you ask for. As and you shall receive, is the way it was once expressed.The key is to KNOW what you want, DECIDE to get it, and then PERSIST until you have done so.

Ending Poverty Consciousness

A Few Ideas to End Poverty ConsciousnessWatch your language! Make sure that what follows "I" or "I am" is what you want to manifest. If you say "I am poor," the Universe will answer you with its only response: yes!people usually limit themselves to poor conditions which ties them down.Our response to situations matters a lot.
Focus on what you desire, not on what you do not desire. That to which you give your attention expands. If you give your attention to scarcity, scarcity expands; if you give your attention to abundance, abundance expands Now is the TimeNow is the only time we really have. We may believe that "as soon as ...... happens" we will be free of poverty consciousness. We may dream that "when I win the lottery, I will do all those things I want to do." The truth is, we do not need to wait for any conditions to change in order to be conscious of abundance. Now is the time. Here is the place.Make up your mind and focus on the positive aspect ot things.Work towards it and see changes accompaning it.

First, there's the dreams. This step states that when you have a dream,write it down.When written down, it becomes a goal mearnt to be pursued but unless that it is only a wish. By writing it you will get a better idea of where you really want to go. Think about how you would like to be. Imagine yourself at the end of the quarter or the end of the year or maybe in five years. What do you see? How do people see you? What are you doing? Are you successful? How do you know? Well, that's kind of my dream. A dream is just that, it's a vision of the future, of how you see yourself in the future. Once you know the direction you want to go than you can begin working on some goals.
Second come the goals. Goals are "wants". So are dreams, but goals are more specific. Look back at your dreams. Start a list of specific things you want. Be really clear what you mean. If you want to be rich, tell how much money you need to be rich. If you want good grades, tell what you mean by "good" grades. In fact, the more specific the goal is, the easier it will be to get it. Now there are some rules for setting goals, and here they are.

Your Mindset

Your key to persnal success is to control your mind and master your emotions.True greatness is attained in service to others.So possess your mind.Do not be a victim going over the falls;be a victor climbing the rapids to achievement. Napoleon hill once observed that "you have not only the power to think but,what is a thousand times more important still,you have the power to control your thoughts and to direct them to do your bidding...You are the sum total of your dominating and most important thoughts."In some situations, you change your manner and tone of voice to hide your true feelings from those you do not want to share them with.You control yourself because you want to, likewise you can do the same with your mind.That is ,master it,control it,make it serve you and not vise versa. Your mindset determines your success in all situations.Do not place your mindset on the obstacles to be encountered instead let your mindset be on how to overcome them.


One of the real fallacies of our day is the popular notion that happiness depends on external circumstances and surroundings.There is no question that our internal moods are colored by external situations,but real personal joy comes from internal conviction, determined by character that is the direct result of high purpose.Success is his who is consistently progressing toward a worthy purpose.Caryle has said,"A man with a half volition goes backwards and forwards,and makes no way on the smoothest road;a man with a whole volition advances on the roughest,and will reach his purpose,if there be even a little worthiness in it.The man without a purpose is like a ship without a rudder-a waif,a nothing,a no man.Have a purpose in life and having it,throw such strength of mind and muscle into your work as God has given you."We must have a purpose of things we do or else we'll be likened to a wanderer.We all have purpose,it's left for you to find it and utilise it in a useful way.Only if you can but search,you will surely find.Happy searching.
