FOCUS

What we focus on, expands.

If you want to achieve much out of the life, focus on one thing at a time. For anything you focus on grows…energy flows there. In fact, concentrating on a particular task one after the another at a time will make you produce your best result in handling each of the tasks.


When you focus on different things (tasks, activities etc) at a time, it tends to lead to producing poor results, helplessness, being stress-out & feeling overwhelmed and confusion of all; when you act like this, you just end up being jack of all trades but master of none. 

I bet you wouldn’t want any of these, so I’d advice, lay your hands or do one particular tasks or things one at a time, don’t work yourself out trying to do it all, rather delegate tasks to others, its benefits are remarkable.

 Orison Swett Marden once said, “Every great man has become great, every successful man has succeeded, in proportion as he has confined his powers to one particular channel.” There is power in focusing on one thing at a time! 

Some practical examples from our daily activities; 

• Log out from all social media platforms or simply mute their notifications and concentrate on the work, study etc you’re doing online giving it full attention without distractions. When you are done, then go back and reply the chats or keeping up with posts if it is in line with your priorities. 

• Drop that phone and focus on eating that delicious meal in front of you, when you are through go back to whatsoever you are doing with your phone. 

• Concentrate on driving instead of replying chat while on steering. In fact, you’re endangering your life and that of other road users and pedestrian doing this together. When you get to your destination, reply all the chats…they will understand, your life matters. 

• As a business man or trader attend to one customer at the time, don’t let how they are rushing you to answer them make you confuse or do mistakes in the business transactions. You will be at the losing end if you let them. 

• When your boss hand you several tasks to do even with deadlines, start working on them one at time from the simplest to the hardest not minding the deadlines. It’s better you achieve much with little than doing everything very poorly. 

• Take off that earpiece and concentrate on whatsoever you’re studying if they don’t sync.

• And so on and so forth …

Finally, in any works of life you find yourself, take it ( either tasks, assignments, activities, errands, jobs, agenda, goals, or objectives, etc) one at a time. For anything that is worth doing is worth doing very well. In that vein you will achieve much out of every endeavors you set out to do. Take action today and you’ll see the remarkable effects in your life for focusing on one thing at a time!

YOU ARE ENOUGH! (How to stop comparing YOURSELF with anyone on SOCIAL MEDIA)

"Every minute you spend wishing you had  someone else's life is a minute spent wasting yours."
That very moment you left her/his social medal wall did you feel inadequate? Did you feel you deserve that same thing they have? Did you ask yourself, why not me? Did you feel like you're not enough? Did you feel less of yourself?
If your answer is yes to any of these, then you have a big problem. You're simply comparing your reality to their highlights.
It's not the best way to live, because that act of comparing yourself to what you see on social media is so counterproductive. It messes you up. It makes you feel anxious, troubled and disturbed. It puts unnecessary pressure on yourself to measure up. It breeds envy and it's a sure path to fall into depression.
My friend the only person you should compare yourself with is man or woman you were a day before. Not them(Social media friends), not anyone but who you are previously.
The thing is that life is a journey …

NEVER BEG FOR LOVE

NEVER BEG SOMEONE TO LOVE YOU
Don't ever let anyone make you think or feel that you can't live on without them.
Never give them that power over you, because when you do, they exploit it and treat you like trash.
Love is not something you need to beg someone for.
If He/She wants to bounce, then let them bounce!
See it as their own loss, not yours for losing someone wonderful and amazing like you!
If you know your true worth, you'll never beg anyone stay who no longer want to be part of your life anymore. In fact, it is a blessing in disguise. Their leaving will open doors to important and interesting people who know your value.
See, life is way too amazing and short to waste time with people who don’t treat you right or value your worth.
Yes, you might feel hurt and heartbroken when they go. Do not worry, you'll be fine and even get better in a short while. Stop every form of communication with them, the feeling will gradually phase out
Get yourself together and forge …

Let's grow and Succeed Together

Once upon a time, a group of 50 people attended a seminar. Suddenly the invited speaker stopped and started giving each person a balloon.
Each one was asked to write his/her name on it using a marker. Then all the balloons were collected and put in another room.
Now these delegates were let in that room and asked to find the balloon which had their respective names written on within 5 minutes.
Everyone was frantically searching for their names, pushing and colliding with each other, and there was utter chaos. At the end of 5 minutes, no one could find their own balloons.
Now each one was asked to randomly collect a balloon and give it to the person whose name was written on it. Within minutes everyone had their own balloons.
The speaker began: "This is exactly what is happening in our lives. Everyone is frantically looking for happiness all over the place, not knowing where it is.
Our happiness lies in the happiness of other people. Helping them find their happiness and you will get yo…
