Making Mistakes

“Oops!” So familiar an expression of mine every time I make a mistake. Over the years I have made tons of them. Maybe you have too. So here is a lesson I have learned and will share this with you.

Of course we make mistakes. We all do. But some people live with it and others fix it. The thing to do is to own it and stop the blame game. Then reconfigure a way to deal with it. Make past mistakes work for you. We make mistakes. Yes. We all do. And when we do we must be

1. Big enough to admit those mistakes.
2. Strong enough to correct them.
3. Smart enough to profit from them.
4. Wise enough not to repeat them.

Mistakes become lessons and failures become tuition and all these help us do better and be better. Just KISS! Keep It Simple, Stupid!

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.

Rise and Grind

Wake up early and make things happen. Rise and shine, rise and grind. Be kind. Be honest. The next day, do the same thing. Wash, rinse, repeat!

This is what gets me to produce positive results. And when they come, I stay humble. Pray and always fill your mind with good vibes. Then repeat the process. Routine is key to a disciplined life.

In our quest for personal excellence, the most important question is how do I BECOME better, not just ACCOMPLISH things better.

The journey for improvement is not elegant as most people think them to be. It is the consistent sticking to a set of personal disciplines that forms the process of improvement until progress becomes the natural outflow of the effort. The process is more important than the product.

Good Storms

One of the most valuable lessons I have learned in life is that bad situations may seem bad at that moment but in hindsight they were crucial for positive changes imposed on me that I would not have accepted had the times been good and comfortable.

It is always meaningful and fulfilling when you go through obstacles and experience a hard-won accomplishment. Gives you a feeling of joy able to do a difficult thing extremely well.

Always work for something that is beyond our present gratification. And as we grow in wisdom, we’ll realize that our main goal in life are not happiness but Godliness. Not reputation, but character. Not wealth, but virtue. Not fame, but faith.

For all the things shall fade away but the Love of the Lord stands forever! Not all storms come to disrupt your life, many of them come to clear you path.

Just A Memory

People today may no longer remember the celebrities of yesteryears. This is a lesson we all must learn. One day, no matter how much we have achieved, no matter how many followers we have in our social media account, you and I will just be a memory.

And even that will fade so there is absolutely no reason we need to be proud and arrogant. Just do our job well, be honest, be kind and live life to the full in God’s presence.

Remember the time when you’re hanging out with friends and family? Then you start recalling memories, blasts from the past where some incredible stuff happened? Some were good, some really funny? They were unique and special. Spend these days creating moments and cultivating memories that will be remembered.

Watching TV is a fake experience, video games are fake accomplishments, dating apps are fake intimacies. Create real experiences and beautiful moments with the people who matter to you.

Happy halloween!

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.

Make Things Right

Some people are not really angry, they are really hurt. Determine the difference and know the reason why. And if we happen to be the reason, would be good for us to clarify and make things right?

Saying sorry is a good start. Many people know how to say it. And it’s not hard really. But here is the deal, the word sorry when said means very little, it is what is done after that truly counts.

True apologies always accompany the obligation to make things right and to return things taken. When these are not there then the sorry does not mean a single thing.

We have to make the hard but right decisions. Do what is right. The end result of this is peace of mind and preservation of dignity. These things really matter.

Track Record

Judge people by their actions and you will never be fooled by their words. The track record of a person’s behavior reveal the true character. I believe this is true. Whether in business or relationship, this principle applies.

Before doing business with anyone, remember what a wise person said: “I don’t trust words. I even question actions but I never doubt patterns.” A person’s track record and pattern of behaviour over the years are the surest, most reliable indications of a person’s character. It is imperative to do due diligence. Search and research into the person’s history of behaviour. This way you would avoid loss. Your loss. And while we are in it, we need to make sure we showcase integrity in all of our dealings.
