There are many facets to life that many of us don't know about. On my column I give my personal views from real life experiences, sound advice on daily obstacles, and I write out lessons I've learned on my personal journey.
We recognize this word in many of our post on social media with a variety of different claims. There are some people who without question have some haters or people who consistently take time out of their daily life to negatively degrade someone to an immoral degree. But there are some that may not have much for someone to genuinely hate on. Those are probably the attention seekers or ones who may just want attention for themselves and what they are saying. Outside influences will sometimes get us to a point where we think everything and everyone is our opposition or out to get us which isn't always the case. Just be you and be authentic because that's the best way to get the right attention. You'll go further by not looking for people to compete against!
"We will block blessings that are about to come our way because we're holding jealousy on our hearts and living off of it!" - Nick H.
"You will lack in a lot of areas if you go out of your way for acceptance! You'll go further just being yourself!" - Nick H.
Getting to and remaining at a humble point in our lives is essential to living a balanced life. For a few people once they reach a certain level in life they may believe humbleness is nonexistent or forget about it which then become the beginning steps to their downfall. On the flip side, many are able to stay humble once they reach a high level of success because they prayed and were prepared for it by for example going through a low valley period for a substantial amount of time. Keep in mind that wherever you are in life is exactly where you are suppose to be. Don't try to get ahead of yourself and have no regrets because that old time period has passed you. Don't focus on your past because over time you may go back to doing certain things you promised to stop doing because you maybe felt pressured into going back!
Pride is one thing that just about every person has struggled with sometime during life. Whether you think you're too good for something or whether you're afraid to speak on something. Pride more times than not keeps us in our comfort zones in which we can't fully reach our potential or expectations. We may think something isn't for us because we may think we aren't worthy or others talk us out of it instantly but in reality it's the best thing possible for us. We'll feed into what others are saying about something instead of our own thoughts. The one thing we always talk about or really wanted will be right in our faces but negative self talk or negative outside influences will get us off. Know what you are good at and stick with it. If it's a passion or what's really meant for you then it will be easy to stay on that path. If not then you're probably doing something that is meant for someone else!
1. a feeling or deep pleasure or satisfaction derived from one's own achievements, the achievements of those with whom one is closely associated, or from qualities or possessions that are widely admired.
2. the quality of having an excessively high opinion of oneself or one's importance.
What is trial and error?
1. the process of experimenting with various methods of doing something until one finds the most successful.
What's your daily agenda?
Is it about production or just staying the same?
Uncertainties will sometimes bear a heavy weight that is hard to get off at times. But it's how you react that makes all the difference. Will you allow yourself to be defeated or will you keep pressing towards your goals. Remember that there are always people looking at you and waiting to see if you mess up no matter how little of it you see for yourself. Trial and error is natural but don't let it become a regular thing. Over time you should be able to know where you're headed in life and what needs to be done on your part to achieve it. We set goals all the time but after one distraction comes, we often times give up. Don't let the process work against you but instead use it to your advantage in a way that achieves success for the goals you set!
These are just some quick thoughts that I have been thinking on. Me and one of my homeboys up here talk a good bit about some of his life issues. One thing I always have noticed is the fact that he always brings up that he feels some people he knows are "sneak dissing" him at work everyday and it gets him sidetracked. Those are natural distractions or the adversary that i'm almost sure everyone faces on the job but many handle them in odd ways at times. You have to eliminate quickly the thought of paying attention to that. That's how many people fall off and lose their passion for whatever their goals are and ultimately miss out on big opportunities that are waiting for them on the other side. Not just in work but this is in all facets of life. The power of words has greater affects among different people. Most people can't fathom the thought of people talking about them behind their backs. Keep in mind that they don't know your daily life or the steps you've been taking so they can't see your vision. Unless they are threats against you then you should have no worries as the person whose mouth it's coming from probably has nothing much going for themselves!
When you are working towards a goal, the adversary will come naturally. Almost everybody in their lifetime has missed an opportunity once or twice. You won't know the signs early on because you haven't experienced enough to recognize it. But over time it should become clearer to you what distractions actually look like and how much they can blend in with everyday life. After you have experienced enough to a certain point, it will be easy to eliminate things that aren't an asset to your goals. Once you reach this step, things will flow smoother and you will realize how capable you are of reaching your life goals.
Outsiders and lurkers will be distractions only if you let them. You'll miss an opportunity you really wanted! So don't make yourself available to just anyone! - Nick H.
First, I will promise you that you won't get anywhere that's God given by doing this. Jealousy has been in everyone at some point in time but do not let it fuel your daily actions. You will find that it will take you off track and you'll do unnecessary things to gain attention. By being fueled off of this you will began to unknowingly earn a negative name for yourself because you'll be known for some type of negativity. You should only be motivated as you see others getting success in their particular fields. But if you aren't properly working towards anything then your process/journey will stretch on longer than you may be able to keep your sanity. The latter is becoming common nowadays.
Don't let jealousy and hatred fuel your life. You won't go anywhere! Don't do things out of character to get acceptance! And don't be ignorant because of something you're insecure about!
There are many facets to this statement. Things can really clutter up in your life quickly if you can not see the signs or the direction you are headed. Whether the direction is good or bad you should always take time to yourself so you can regroup and prepare for what's ahead! Always PRAY when you wake up and before anything you do! By doing these things, life will clear up for you! You will have a perspective on life that helps your growth and helps you focus on the goals you've set for yourself!
Put a premium on your life. Learn that everybody doesn't have to be around you. Be authentic in your ways and keep pushing towards whatever goals you have. The right doors will open for you sooner than you were even hoping for! - Nick H.
Thank the Lord in advance for blessings. What's for you is for you. Only you and your actions stand in the way of you being elevated! - Nick H.
Don't focus on the next mans success. Focus on the goals you set for yourself and your time will come! Don't try and be what everyone else is doing and being! - Nick H.
Your actions have to prove that you have been grasping what you've been taught in life and by God's word. Anything less is a sign of regression!
