How to make the most out of your life

Are you feeling down on life, confused or unable to find the right track to go with? Well, a lot of people feel this way. “How do i make the most out of my life?” is one of the most asked questions to life coaches, astrologers, friends and family, etc. It also a start of a good sign when this question is asked, because it means that you care somewhat about your existence. Below are highly effective ways to enhance your life if followed diligently.

Ways to make the most out of your life

  • Create a theme for your life: It is quite easy to get lost in the turbulence of life if you are unaware of the things that your life stands for. What are you all about, or what do you want to be all about. What goals do you care about accomplishing, how do you picture yourself in the highest state of achievement? Answering these questions can help you find a theme for your life. This will make you know what you should aspire to be in your daily activities. Your theme for life could be: “Successful and happy”, “divinely guided being of abundance”, “Energetic and creative living”, etc. Mine is simply “Abundant success and fullness of life”
  • Know your worth: A lot of people in this journey of life forget their worth along the way due to some tumbling and bashing. They forget that life’s tough times do not define anyone. To make the most of your life, you have to recognize your divinity and realize that you are worth any good thing that can happen.
  • Look for the right things: Seek out the right things that will be beneficial to your life. Stop chasing vain pursuits. Some people actively seek things that hurt them or bring down their sense of self worth. Do not be this way. Treat yourself like a soul mate you are madly in love with. You would only want them to do constructive and beneficial things.
  • Be greatful: As cliche as this sounds, gratitude has tremendous effect on the life of a person. Many times a lot of people are stuck on “the wheel of complain”, that they forget they actually have things to be greatful for. Even if you lament poverty, have you stopped to thank God for your talents , fullness of life or… your lack of having cancer? Even if you have cancer, have you stopped to be thankful for the caring friends and family you have. Also, you have eyes to read this, or ears to be read this to. I have learnt along my way in life, that there is always something to be thankful for. And when you are thankful, miracles happen and good things come.

The real meaning of ‘I shall not want’

 The popular phrase ‘ I shall not want’ is taken from the Lord’s prayer. Several years as a Christian, while reciting the Lord’s prayer as a child, I could not grasp the actual deep meaning behind it. Many of us till now, I’m sure still do not get the accurate meaning of  ‘I shall not want’.

This phrase covers a lot of things affecting everyday humans. Many people ‘want’ a lot in life. They want a soul mate, they want money, they want a job , they want a better life. Infact most of us negate the law of not ‘wanting’ for anything. This is a very important law. Regular people are stuck in the cycle of wanting  they forget that everything they ever need is already theirs, all that is left is for the possession of it. The thinking of lack and want occurs on the physical plane dominated by reason (or what most people think it is), this is why most people will ‘want’.

“I shall not want’ means that in order to move forward to become the enlightened being you naturally are, you just need to step away from fear infused and desperate energies, ‘want’ being a part of them. Instead of you wanting something, why don’t you declare that the things you desire wants you. Why not, money wants me, good jobs wants me, my soul mate wants me, a better life wants me. To do this with total confidence means you have to recognize you have innate talents that attract anything you desire.

This is to say that desiring things are not bad. To put it simply, desire means you care about something , while want is a desperate energy towards acquiring something. You have to desire somethings in life, if not you can not have passion or drive. Desire is a fuel to choose what exactly you like to reject that which you don’t desire.

‘I shall not want’ means that everything you need, you have. On an higher plane of consciousness everything is available for you. All that remains is just for you to see in faith. It is a proclamation of acknowledging God, the divinity within yourself and the awesome power your mind cannot even comprehend. When the understanding of  ‘I shall not want’ comes upon your psyche, all fear is banished.

If you think ‘want’ you get want, if you think ‘abundance’ you get abundance.

Money and the society we live in…

 I had realized something a long time ago but remembered again recently. While registering for a PayPal account, I spotted something. A feature read that it was a good source of making payments for online shopping. Why this statement stood out to me was simple, in this world we live in there are always so many mediums in which we are told we can spend our money. Sometimes to even earn money from a venture you are required to spend some money. Money that some don’t even have. A good example of this would be WordPress and paid blogging before you start earning from your blog.

Everyone is always suggesting new ways for us to spend. It was ironical because the reason I was opening an account in the first place was as a means to earn money from the internet especially via foreign sources when possible. I was not interested in going on a foreign online shopping spree. 

Nobody really teaches us how to get money to spend really, but society knows how to tell us of the various ways we can spend. Constantly we are bombarded with adverts of several different products. New products are created everyday as well, non stop. There is always a way in which a product can ‘change’ our mundane lives according to people of the marketing world , but most don’t really care if our lives get better, as long as they earn those crisp notes.This is why today , we have a lot of frustrated youths, the images of the numerous things they can buy contradicts to the level if information of how to generate wealth for themselves.

How to solve this problem?

Really I don’t know how such problem can be solved at large in this society. But I do know that individually we have power to resist whatever. We should strive to teach and learn how to gain financial independence rather than pursue the latest spending fads then complain on ‘the lack of money’. Our spending power should match the level of our financial freedom.

Just my thoughts

Radical action is the main step to success

 Ever wondered what held you back from the completion of your desired goals and achieving success? Here is your answer. 

You failed to take decisive and radival action to propel you forward. It is not enough to just feel tired of lack of growth in your life, there must be willingness to try new methods and things. But many are not willing to leave their old ways of doing things behind. Their thought process stop them from thinking outside the box.

Getting out of poverty, lack of resources, idleness, slothfulness, or any traits you have been used too for far too long that is not bringing positives in your life requires radical action. Want wealth? Are you ready to take various action you are not used to taking? To step into abundance there is a need to diversify. Diversify your thoughts, actions, places you go, people you meet and relate to, etc.

 In doing this will you find the information you may be looking for. Are you willing to talk to that rich dude who visits your local cafe and summon courage to talk to him? Or are you willing to ask the right questions to make you your best version. Asking the right questions brings the right result. So why do you stop yourself from taking action?
If success in anything you imagine for yourself is your goal, then a radical step must begin it all. This is the main first step. While reading success stories of great people, you may notice that many had to go the extra mile than the general populace in their thoughts, actions, interpersonal relationships and movements. They did not do what was expected by anyone other than themselves. Also, the renowned people you see today had dreams that a “normal” person did not even comprehend to be dreamt. 

If you refuse to break your routine or typical life cycle then success is not coming. Your days should not remain as it has been from two years ago, from work to restaurant to friends house to your house. Funny enough, many people’s life had remained as it were 10 years ago, some even for longer. And for the general unsuspecting populace there is comfort in this abnormality. This is why if you plan to be successful, you can not look at the general population for inspiration. 

You must choose those who are not living the rat race, the ones who have transcended the matrix as your inspiration. Are you ready to take radical action. To write those first pages to begin that novel you’ve dreamt in your head, quit that boring unproductive job, buy that plane ticket, dial that number, ask that question, create something?! If you are, then success is on the way.

Complain freak

“Cheap fabrics,cheap meals”

“I deserve more than this!”

But what did you do for yourself?

Did you go out to work

Rather than sit and complain

Daydreaming of gold and silver

Craving for the riches of the earth

Even when it stared at you in the mirror

You!

The underestimation of what you can do yourself

Without the nagging and begging

Or waiting for a guilty meal ticket

You deserve more,

only when you give more, in talent and practicality

What to do when no one supports your dreams

It has happened to many of us.We have this marvellous idea we want to launch,this vision we want to share.But no one seems to be there to urge us on.Not everyone is lucky to have a legendary mother the likes of Ben Carson.The ones who trust,nutures,inspires and believes.Some of us just have to be our own biggest fans.This is not something which is bad,because being our own greatest support is the best thing ever.Or it should be.

However,humans crave validation. Validation,that word which holds both positive and negative connotations.It is rather easy to say that we do not need validation,but much more harder to abide by it.We do need validation.It is a trait innate to humans.The need for approval of accomplishment.But do we have to get it from a particular group of people to be fulfilled?No,we don’t have to.

Though we need validation,we are selective of who we appreciate receiving it from.A positive reinforcement might come from a stranger on the internet or a college who feels your ideas are great.Most times we do not value the praise that comes from people we give less value to.You might as well prefer the approval from your friends and family,but they might not give it.The issue is in being satisfied with what we can get at any given moment.

So what can be done when you feel that no one supports you?Keep on going!Your dreams are most important to you than anyone else.Why? Because a lot of people are also thinking about their own lives.I’m sure you do that as well.I for one do not go about worrying about everyone’s dream and ambition. Sometimes I even come across an awesome idea which I like,but I forget to express my opinion.Such person might never know that I approved of him/her.People show approval more when you have reached a peak of considerable success.

Every great person today had gone through the same process of feeling alone.When no one supports you,do not use that as an excuse to give up.Use that as a fuel to make progress.Your passion is good enough motivation to keep on going.The need to make yourself a better version you can be should be an inspiration.

Your dreams are for you and at all cost you should fight for them. This is possible without the help of anyone.You can draw courage and strength from many people and sources,but you should be your own hero.It makes you a stronger person whose vision is focused.The greatest support you can get is the one you give yourself.

Keep moving forward.

It’s not about willpower!

Willpower had become a cliche word for in which so many self help people proclaimed to be an ultimate problem solver.Its only recently that studies on willpower show how limited it is.The effectual reliance on the short supply of this proclaimed wonder tool has no basis in actual keeping up with a positive habit.

It turns out that by rewiring the pattern of your brain,the need to use willpower frequently is not neccesary.The constant loop mode the brain is always in to repeat pattern and habits is our enemy,especially when it comes to creating change.If only we learn how to break the pattern and stop the habit when we notice the loop in action.

So no,it’s not about willpower when you want to change your habits,action,thought processes and your mind.It’s about doing something sporadically,out of the blue even as when your mind tells you to follow the old ways you are used to.When you begin to do this,it becomes more easier to try new stuff.Willpower becomes less needed to go through the day.

Be spontaneous!

Distraction and how to maneuver its lureĀ 

We switch on the tv and just want to watch it for a few minutes.Minutes grow into an hour,then more hours.At the end of that nice weekend,we begin to wonder all what we could have accomplished with our lives.And the cycle continues.Distraction-It’s something that robs us of our true intentions.It is the hindrance we create for ourselves.

Distraction leads to procrastination and the latter leads to unaccomplishment.This robs us of our joy as we feel our life is never complete.There is a thin line between being idle and being distracted.A need to maneuver this foe in our daily lives is neccesary,in order for productivity to abound in our lives.

How to bypass the lure of distraction

As we live and develop on this earth,we find more tools and skills to cope with the never ending challenges.This goes for whatever problems come our way,and this includes distraction.First,we must acknowledge our lives importance.No matter how mundane your life may seem,we are all significant in the grand scheme of things.

Though many might argue our collective insignificance in the universe,we must not forget how little drops of water makes a mighty ocean.By recognising the ability we possess and our importance,self evaluation becomes easy.Then can we realise the power we have to change our frame of mind and from there,our lives.

We should take note of what is most important in our lives.These are the things that give our lives meaning,flavour and colour.After identifying these things,we need to evaluate if enough attention and growth has been given to these areas.For example,if you like writing,ask yourself if you have given enough attention to this area.If you find sewing important to you,how much investment have you made in it with your time and effort?Baking?Have you raised your skill level recently?Do you like talking about being an entrepreneur,business and money?What are your accomplishments in these areas.If your answer is no,you need to ask yourself why that is.Then you need to figure out what has been taking up your time instead.In 99.9 percent of the times and scenarios,the culprit for our unproductivity is distraction.

The mind and eyes are easily attracted to shiny things.You will find that with proper research,what distracts us are enticing in apperance.It may be video games,too much sleep,social media,unnecessary drama,laziness and faux tiredness,wishing and imagination,chasing fun,etc.These are all distractions and they subtract from our lives instead of adding to it.If such distractions fills up our days,there is no way for us to build up skills in what truely interests us.We then get stuck in a trap box that we created by our own hands.A box of perpetual and repeating personal failures.A box of distractions.

Doing whatever possible to resist the shiny deceitful hour stealer will be an excellent start.It gets easier once we have started the process of saying “no” to all the negatives that fills our lives.Refusing to indulge in the things that keep us stuck,be it not eating clean,spending above your income,unproductivity,etc will break the pattern.The pattern needs to be broken for a daring side of us to surface.

We must act on what we positively desire for our lives. It doesn’t matter on what form of motivation you get or if you don’t believe in motivation at all,just do It !Positive and productive action is key.This step is left to us as soon as we realise our power and conclude that fear is an imagined threat.Besides,why should one be afraid of personal progress.It also boils down to realising how we self sabotage ourselves.Remember no one will come to our aid (usually)except ourselves!We own the life,therefore we must act in ways to enrich it.Maneuvering distraction is one of this ways.

Let’s be productive!

Do everything with a touch of class

Being a class act is universally admired.The worst people in history had gotten off easy and were even praised because they committed their deeds with class.From Cleopatra,Thomas Jefferson to Marie Antoinette and Winston Churchill,many people recorded in history for their power(even though bad deeds were done),a great attitude of class was presented.

Almost any fault,sin or crime is considered more leniently if there is a touch of class involved

Frank Agbendle

How to be classy

 Do not appear over passionate/emotional about something, at least on the surface.Keep your perceived emotions calm and cool.Always believe what you present,be confident about your prowess.Even if you are serving cow shit (excuse the language),be brave and confident and do not doubt your worth.This makes it worth more as the illusion is potrayed.Confidence is classy.

Acting classy is seductive and enticing.Flying into a rage or expressing dramatic emotions/overreaction is an instant turn off.The more you appear with class the more respect you will receive.Think about the impression you want to give out before you take a step.Select the right audience that is worth your value.

Class gives you charisma just as it increases your perceived value.Make sure that you do everything with a touch of class involved.A well meaning action executed without intelligence and dignity results into a shameful result,while a bad intention executed with class and charisma appears dignified.

 Let class be your maxim
