Quiet People

Quiet people are not necessarily lonely, they may actually be enjoying the silence. People who are loud may not exactly be happy, sometimes they are just good in disguising their sadness. Appearance never tell the entire story.

There’s now what is called “disconnection anxiety”. This is when there’s no Wi-Fi or low-batt or no book or no television. And people become so anxious they don’t know how to handle the situation anymore.

Technology does not have a soul. You and I have. Learn to quiet the soul and be attuned to its Maker.

In the workplace, there are people who do not work much but are good in grabbing credit. There are those who quietly do the work and enjoy their accomplished work. One day the deficiencies of the fakers will be revealed. Meanwhile the quiet performers continue to upgrade their capabilities reaping their rewards. There’s no limit to what can be accomplished if it doesn’t matter who gets the credit.

To Be A Winner

If we want to be a winner, then we have to stop thinking like we are the victim. If we want to achieve great things then we have to stop thinking small. Let’s take charge and be responsible for the choices we make.

It’s one thing when someone accomplishes something, but isn’t it better when a team achieves something together and everyone can celebrate? Talent may win games, but teamwork and team play win championships. A person may be a superstar but when the team does not win, the personal victory is not meaningful.

“A winner is someone who recognizes his God-given talents, works his tail off to develop them into skills, and uses these skille to accomplish his goals.” ~Larry Bird

Had a Bad Day?

So you have had a bad day. I have. All of us do from time to time. Someone said this and has served as a good reminder for me. Perhaps this can help you too: Having a bad day doesn’t mean you have had a bad life.

So let’s get over it and move on. Tomorrow will be better.

Put your hand on your heart. Feel that? That’s called purpose. Don’t give up!

We cannot get everyone to agree with us. That is a fact. Some would not even like us. There will be haters. There will be criticism. There will be those who love to bad mouth. And there will be those who will doubt you.

Just stick to the truth and focus on doing what is right. Truth will one day prove them wrong. Don’t play their game.

Here is the key: If you can’t beat them NEVER join them. Not worth it at all.

Sometimes we have to fight through some bad days to earn the best days of our life.

Energy Vampires

People are always unavailable for people who are constantly complaining and angry all the time. It’s not that they are insensitive, it is simply because their energy are zapped and their beauty is uglified by all that negativity. Put on a smile on your face and be an encourager instead. The world opens up to you in terms of friendship and opportunities.

Surround yourself with the dreamers and the doers, the believers and the thinkers. But most of all surround yourself with those who see greatness within you.

Some people equate the worth of a person with the work he or she produces. That is all so wrong. You are worth so much not because of what you do but because of what Christ has done for you on the cross. This is why only Christ gives intrinsic worth. No need to feel sorry for yourself. You are worth so much in the eyes of The One who have His life for you.

Saying Sorry

Saying sorry is important and it works. But saying sorry works only when a mistake is done but not when trust is broken.

So in life as in business, we can afford to make mistakes, say sorry and repair the mistakes. But we can never afford to break trust. Forgiving is easy but forgetting and trusting again takes a long time and is sometimes impossible.

We make mistakes. We apologise and say, I am sorry. But make sure we do not mess up an apology with an excuse. “I am sorry… BUT… the reason why I did what I did…” This is not an apology because the word BUT nullifies the effort. Genuine apology also means the correction of the wrong that has been done. Repair for the damage has to be initiated. This is the responsibility of the one who did the wrong. If this part is missing the process is incomplete.

We all have made mistakes and there are many who want reform and recovery. When the intention is honest and sincere, there is no longer any need to bring up the past of a person when the same person is trying to improve his or her future.

The Thought Life Conversations

How are you dealing with the thoughts you are having? Are they healthy? If you are having negative thoughts, you need to dismiss them. Replace them with positive thoughts that are channeled towards seeking opportunities for good things and growth. Thoughts are crucial conversations that takes place in our mind.

Here is a good thing to consider: Everything in this world can be an inspiration – discover it. Every moment that passes is precious & irreplaceable – cherish it. Every person we meet is a gift – value the relationship. Everything that happens in life has a purpose – thank God for it. Life is beautiful beyond measure – treasure it.

No matter how good things are in our life, there is always a challenge that needs to be addressed. On the other hand, no matter how difficult things are in our life at the moment, there is always something good that we can thank God for. A grateful heart pulls us through every time all the time.

Start Walking

Have you ever had a friend correct you? Did he or she approach you gently or get in your face and raise their voice? Were they gentle or rough? Makes all the difference. It’s not always what you say that is wrong, but it’s the way you say it. The next time you need to confront someone about a problem, make sure you choose your words and your tone of voice wisely and skilfully.

Sensitive, serious relationships require serious, faithful commitment and responsibility. And if after a long while you are still confused and cannot figure out where you stand with someone, it might be time to stop standing and to start walking. That may just be your true independence day!

Good Things, Bad Things

Good things usually require pains. Bad things bring more pains. No one can escape pains; they are part and parcel of our daily living.

There are however two kinds of pains we can choose to have.

– The pain of discipline.
– The pain of regrets.

Trust me. The first one may bring momentary discomfort but will yield good results in the future. The second one will always be more painful in the future if one chooses to escape the first one.

Consequently, there’s the truth and the lie. Truth is like a surgey. It hurts but cures. Lie is like a pain killer. It gives instant relief but has side effects forever.
