EMBRACE FAILURE,ITS JUST A STEPPING STONE TO YOUR SUCCESS IF YOU DO NOT GIVE UP.

We tend to most resist failure when we most want to succeed; – yet to succeed in new, challenging, and meaningful ways we most fail” 

Having observed for some time, I have realized that many people always want to run away from failure. Anytime success and failure are spoken of; individuals become quiet centered, with failure on one side and success on the other side. What happens is that, they do all they can to move toward success and away from failure.

But friend, what if you changed your mentality to putting failure before success. This way you make failure a stepping stone to success.

Quite often, what we fail to realize is that, anytime we fail in our activities, it means we couldn’t overcome a big challenge. We have to note that the more we tackle challenges the higher our chance of succeeding. “Decide to be unstoppable, you may stumble and you may fail but you must not stop” 

The fact is that failure is only a temporal setback. Failure is not evil as some of my pals perceive. Real failures occur when we move away from worthwhile challenges without even trying but giving up. And also when we do not learn from our failure we tend to experience complete failure which cannot lead to success.

What we must all know is that, the negative mentality we hold for failure must change. You could be successful if you learn to discover opportunities in challenges/problems.

The key to unlocking the success of your activity is persisting, being determined and endeavoring to succeed whenever you have a challenge; when failure comes your way , it should tell you that your methods of approach is not right. Therefore you have to change it.

 “our doubts are traitors, and make us lose the good we oft might win, by fearing to attempt” Keep striving to overcome your challenges, never think of giving up; least you become a failure. Hey! Do have any challenge? If No! Go get one if you want success to smile at you.Life is really a journey indeed!

Keep moving friends.Its your time to shine.

NEVER GIVE UP ON YOUR DREAMS’HOLD ON,YOU WILL GET THERE.

Don’t Quit

When things go wrong as they sometimes will,
When the road you’re trudging seems all up hill,
When the funds are low and the debts are high
And you want to smile, but you have to sigh,
When care is pressing you down a bit,
Rest if you must, but don’t you quit.
Life is queer with its twists and turns,
As every one of us sometimes learns,
And many a failure turns about
When he might have won had he stuck it out;
Don’t give up though the pace seems slow–
You may succeed with another blow,
Success is failure turned inside out–
The silver tint of the clouds of doubt,
And you never can tell how close you are,
It may be near when it seems so far;
So stick to the fight when you’re hardest hit–
It’s when things seem worst that you must not quit.

BOASTING – Pride Hurts

Everyone was sure Susan would get the lead role of Maria in the Spring musical, Westside story, especially Susan. She kept reminding everyone of her experience- having been in every production since she had started at the college.

“I can make Maria come to life on the stage,” she proclaimed. “Besides, this is my last show. Lots of people will be disappointed if I’m not cast as Maria.”

Audition day came, and Susan was ready. She confidently sang, danced, and acted. It felt great. “I was really good,” She told her best friend Debbie on the phone that evening. “It’s a great part. It will really stretch me.”

Next morning, Susan rushed to the drama room to see the cast list and confirm what she already knew. But she stared at the list in disbelief. Her name wasn’t next to Maria. It was way down the page- a little part with just a few lines in Act Two. Humiliated, Susan left in tears. Susan’s problem was pride. It is the greatest deadly disease on earth.

QUESTIONS:

What ‘TOWER’ of Pride are you building in your own life?

CONSIDER………

– Giving a compliment to another person when you are tempted to boast about yourself.
– Listing everything about yourself that makes you proud. Then put ticks besides items you think are appropriate forms of pride and cross beside those that aren’t. Decide how you will begin to overcome one of the crosses this week.

Your Mouth Is Your Battle Axe

Hi Friends, I’m Deolu Oke, I’m an Architect who has passion for writing, I love music, reading and sharing constructive experience with freinds.
i beleive the more you explore life’ the more you are able to dig into the mysteries of life made available to us, hence,
i travels for exposure and tourism, i work hard and cautiously to make my life a mirror of my writings ,
i beleive solely in God for strength and courage to overcome the many challenges of life.

A place of ‘knowing’ (Self- Discovery) is the gateway to freedom that is so much anticipated in your life. As things are generally,
we all believe that life is truly a Warfare.
Your approach towards it will determine how successful your life will be.
Simulating the practical issues of life will make you realize that your approach to Life
is a function of your Mindset, there is a mystical syncrony between what our mind thinks and what
our mouth says and this directly dictates what happens to us in life
Your mindset is truly the engine room that connects with nature which materializes your thought pattern.

It is more or less like you have a problem at hand which is so intense, no matter how hard you try to get a solution,
things are not just listening to you, whereby, all hope have been lost, many options are just running through your mind,
you keep praying but the zeal and faith is no more there. This is my analysis, when you find yourself in this tight corner,
if your mind is not connected to the source for a way out, my dear, nothing will work for you.

But there is a place of connectivity to the right source, i.e being positive no matter how life have treated you,
My advice for you is to be patient, focus and keep proclaiming positive words to your life.
You mouth is your battle axe because the Holy Book also confirm it that ‘the power of life and death is in the tongue’,
and it also say ‘As a man proposes in his heart, so he is’.

For this reason, we have all the authority on earth to address any situation around us. After a while,
they will all varnish away as long as you know the right word to address it authoritatively, in Faith.
The truth is, it has really worked for me on various occasion. Please always make use of this tools.
If you positively position your mind, after a while, things will definitely work in your favor. Going through challenges of life is really a bitter experience.

Basic Facts
Always have it in mind that problems are always certain in life but our ability to solve it, will take us to the next level.

How Do I Position Myself For A Change.

– Be Positive minded.
– Be Patient.
– Speak Positively about the situation.
– Be Persistent
– Be Hard Working.
– Pray.
– Always position yourself for a change of status.
– Be sensitive to opportunities.
– Be confident and remove any fear factor.
– Search for materials that is relevant to that particular problem.
– Make yourself Happy.
– Make peace with everyone.
– Attend Seminars.
– When the problem is solved, move on with your life but learn from it.
– Never give up.

My Life Experience
A while ago, I was in a big mess, whereby I keep believing God for a change of story or a turn around but it persisted,
the problems keep multiplying. I knew it was an institute of total learning for me because the shame, the pains and fear were not easy at all.
But I endured it, I kept trying, starting over and over, my prayer life keep increasing. Let me shock you a bit,
some problem will never be solved until you meet with some people who are relevant to your destiny.
While you need to check your life and assess some of your friends that are not relevant to you.
Until you disengage with them you will never get to your promised land. This is what I have once experienced.
But you need to get connected to your rightful Helpers. This is my point of a turn around, it was really working like magic.
The fact is they did not just surfaced like that but I prayed my way to locate them.
You are the next in line for a Breakthrough!
