Nothing is perfect the first time

Nothing is perfect the first time

There is nothing that was created or invented by man that was perfected the first time. Everything that we do or have done is never perfect the first time. All the nice buildings and all the beautiful things that are man-made were not perfect at the first attempt. A lot of planning, research, rebuilding and hard work had to be undertaken. That is why….

Learn to keep your dreams alive

Dreams

The key to happiness is having dreams. The key to success is making your dreams come true. We all have dreams, but life can be a discouragement. Life has a way of pushing our dreams backwards. We all have gone through a rough patch in our lives and this may have resulted in burying our dreams. There are various reasons why our dreams are buried.  Some dreams are buried under bad health; some are buried under divorce and still most people are buried with their dreams. Dr. Myles Monroe says the richest place on earth is the….

There is no safety in the “comfort Zone”

Comfort Zone

Life requires that we move on while our human nature dictates that we remain in our “comfort zone”.  Unfortunately our comfort zone does not provide for growth. When you remain in your comfort zone chances are that you will never grow. You are most likely to going to live a non fulfilling life. If you have to contribute meaningfully to society, and to your own well being, you have to move out of your comfort zone and explore the world. Explore the unknown and be bruised and battered to create your….

Everything is hard before it’s easy

Every thing is hard

“If I have correct goals and I keep pursuing them the best way I know how, everything falls into line. If I do the right thing, I am going to succeed” – Dan Dierdorf. Human beings by nature want to have the easy things in life. Most of us are full of envy, when we see our friends driving beautiful fancy cars and living a seemingly comfortable and enjoying life in general. How we long to arrive at the so called “easy life” destination without hard work. Yet it does not come. The lazier we become the further away the…

Your values make the person you are

values

Life is lived from the inside out. At the very core of your personality are your values. What you become or what you are, is largely dictated by the values that you hold strong. If your values are love, kindness, honesty, positivity and sincerity that is what will often be shown in your life. Our outward life is merely a reflection of our inner core values. The Bible says “you shall know them by their fruits”. Our values are our fruits….

Yourself image determines your performance

Positive self image

We all have formed an image of our self in one way or another. I have been doing a personal study of my performance in relation to my personal image. The discovery has been phenomenon. I have discovered that the way I view my self has a direct relationship with my task performance and my general life output. I believe that this is true for most of us. We live our lives based on our self image. We form our self image based on many factors especially external ones. If your self image is that of a failure or of a loser believe me, you are most likely living a failed or losing life. However, the…

Be open minded and flexible to change

change

We live in a society that is constantly evolving and therefore, it is important that we adapt to change in order that we enhance our personal development and growth.

Most of us are in this category. You should keep an open mind and focus on the things that will help you achieve your personal goals. Make sure that you make the change as and when necessary in the processes you are imploring to achieving your…

Why is it important to live consciously or have a conscious mind? Do you live consciously? “I know of no more encouraging fact than the unquestionable ability man to elevate his life by conscious endeavor” – Henry D Thoreau. Many of us live our lives on auto pilot. We just flow with the wind. We find our selves and lives drifting with the wind. One of the most important aspects of personal development is to develop a habit of living consciously. This helps create a sense of expectation and builds confidence in us. Confidence also helps build motivation. Over the years I have developed a ….
