Seven Habits to Completely Avoid in 2018.

chaneg-2

I was looking at 2017 and taking evaluation of the year and how to make amends for 2018.

I come across a video by Daniel Ally and he is talking about seven (7) habits to completely avoid, so I picked out his seven points to shear with you.

1. Comment searching.

This when we go through the comments on social media post before we make our own comments. Mostly when we do this we are looking for negative comments and at the end we lost our own opinion we are influenced by the comment we read. Comments searching rob us of our originality and creativity.

2. Impulse buying.

This is when we buy things based on impulse rather than need (or even want). When ever you see something and you just want to buy it without deep taught is not good. This is not to discourage you about buying things for yourself, we need to buy good things we need and spend on yourself.

Next time before you buy anything find out if it is what you need or want.

3. Over eating.

Over eating kills your productivity and on a spiritual level dulls your spiritual sensitivity. Like Daniel Ally say “must people that over eat are doing so because of what they miss in childhood”.

Learn a good eating habit of healthy food. I will suggest this eat a big healthy breakfast then a small lunch (if necessary) then a light dinner.

4.  Lust

Lust is a desire to have something without waiting for the right time. Lust can manifest in many forms is not necessary sexual in nature, it can be material lust and others.

Lust takes focus out of our lives, when you drive by lust your life will not productive.

The world now has many suggestion that triggers lust especially via social media, I want to advice that next time you’re tempted to lust, instead of giving it a second look or taught direct your mind towards a set goal in your life and remain focus.

5. Gossip

Every day and everywhere people talk about people. Must time we gossip unconsciously without taught to it.

Must of our discussion with others is about other, but what is been discussed is what make it out as a gossip or not, next time your engaged in discussion about another, take your time to assess the discussion if its healthy or harmful, true or false, productive or unproductive , positive or negative.

Must time people gossip about other because we never confront them, so next simple confrontation such as can we talk about another thing please can help stop gossip.

6. Drugs

Drugs or substance abuse is one of the greatest ills of our generation, must of the youth and some of the aged are addict to some sort of substance. Drugs is not just about crack, marijuana e.t.c. it is a wide range of substance, ranging from nicotine to alcohol. Tobacco smoking, drinking. I will encourage you to look deep into your mind and identify your addiction and change it ton something positive.

7. Drifting

Drifting is letting time pass by without you actually accomplishing anything. Must time in our busyness we let a lot of time drift by without doing anything meaning full.

I will encourage you to try and a lot more with your time, you can write a book, you can compose song, music, poems, write a play, a drama or script even a movie.

During those quite time at work or school, while on transit or taking a walk you can accomplish a lot of things.

This are not just the only things to avoid but this are few out of then many, this post might be an eye opener to other habits that you need to change.

Happy new year in advance.

Shedding Off Unwanted People

Trees in desert regions shed their leaves in order to grow. It is not an easy process or simple steps, it has to first allow those leaves to dry up first before shedding them. They do that to help prevent lost of water through the process of photosynthesis. Shedding leaves helps to tress to grow and still be standing after many years.

As human we also need to learn from the activities of this trees, we need to learn to shed off some people from our lives. Those you might be likely to shed are family or friends. It is not going to be easy process but it worth it. Just like T D Jakes will say “let them go”.

Letting some people go, is not an indication that they are bad people but they are not more contributing meaning fully into your life and you have to let them go.

As the year is rounding up it time to start taking assessment of the people to shed just like the trees (here in the northern part of Nigeria, the tress have start to shed there leaves).

 

Struggling To Met Up

Never before in history have so many people had so much, yet felt so dissatisfied.

Some sociologists point to technology and social media as significant factors in our constant unhappiness. We are the first people in the history of the world who can peek inside the lives of others in real time. We carry tiny media powerhouses in our pockets that let us voyeuristically follow other people around, through all of their check-ins and pictures and video clips.

And if what we’re seeing in the lives of others seems better, more interesting and more fulfilling than our own lives, we feel like we’re missing out. Of course, that feed we’re watching may not necessarily reflect the whole reality. Most people generally put their best foot forward, showing you only the things they want you to see. Photoshopped and cropped, filtered and edited, what we see online makes our own reality seem dingy and dull.

No wonder we often feel so dissatisfied.

No matter how much we have, it can’t compare to what we need the most.

Perhaps no one has understood this better than the Apostle Paul. When Paul was in a prison in Rome, he wrote about his experiences and what he had learned. He basically said, “I’ve gone without the things that I need before. But I’ve also had times when I had more than enough. Life happens in seasons. I’ve had good seasons where everything was going well, and I’ve had hard ones where nothing went my way. But through them all, I’ve learned that there’s one secret to being content: I can do anything and everything—not by my own power—but through Christ. Jesus gives me the strength to handle anything that comes my way.”

You will always battle with discontentment until you let Christ be all that you need. You can chase after everything you’ve ever wanted and get it all. It won’t be enough.

At the end of the day, every day, you’ll still feel empty.

How To Succeed In Life.

A group of 50 people attended a seminar. Suddenly the speaker stopped and started giving each person a balloon. Each one was asked to write his/her name on it using a marker. Then all the balloons were collected and put in another room.

Now these delegates were let in that room and asked to find the balloon which had their respective names written on within 5 minutes. Everyone was frantically searching for their names, pushing and colliding with each other, and there was utter chaos. At the end of 5 minutes, no one could find their own balloons.

Now each one was asked to randomly collect a balloon and give it to the person whose name was written on it. Within minutes everyone had their own balloons. The speaker began: This is exactly what is happening in our lives.
Everyone is frantically looking for happiness all over the place, not knowing where it is. Our happiness lies in the happiness of other people. Help them Find their happiness and you will get your own happiness too. And this is the purpose of human life… Learn to put a smile on someone’s face, and you will also smile in due course.​

L E S S O N : when you’re making others to succeed in life you’re also a success.

Kill Your Ego

Reflect on these words

1.Your BIRTH came through Others

2.Your NAME was given by Others

  1. You were EDUCATED by Others

4.Your INCOME indirectly comes through Others

  1. Your RESPECT is given by Others
  2. Your first BATH was given by Others

  3. Your last BATH will be done by Others

  4. Your FUNERAL will be organised by Others

  5. You will be taken to your FINAL RESTING PLACE by Others

and

  1. EVERYTHING you owned will be inherited by Others

Hmm….. Why, then, do some of us let our EGO, our CAREER, our MONEY and our BELIEFS undermine the worth of Others in our lives, when we are so dependent on Others.

Isn’t it high time we learn to live in peace and harmony with Others, because all through our lives, at one point or the Other, we will need each Other?

Hope you will share this msg with Others.

Meditation

Most People feel when you sit alone, quite and in such a position; you are worried, depressed, obsessed, suppressed, thinking negatively… That’s true but not all encompassing.

I bring you a dimension… Do you know that your place of personal development, evaluation, assessment and redirection comes from willful, careful, planned thoughts? You can’t succeed in life without thinking positive towards the direction of your passion.

Meditation is good! Replace worry with good thinking… Associate with people of insights, knowledge and virtue. People that will make you come back to your closet and think positive not to worry. Information that gives you knowledge, knowledge that enhances meditation. Most a times people will say “allow me to think” “i wanna be left alone” “i need some quite time” ” let me be” “excuse me” etc. Such are good refrains to Association i agree but most of these are targeted towards negative attitude and thoughts.

I bring you a free bibliotherapy… “Thinking is Good, but Good thinking comes after Good reading” –
