“The Older You Get, The More Quiet You Become.”

I was thinking to myself the other day that when you live long enough, you end up being a hypocrite.

You end up contradicting yourself.

I’ve been seeing this from those Facebook memories feature I have on my FB page.

What I thought or believed in before, is not what I believe in now.

Truth is ever changing.

That’s why the Truth will forever be constant.

Because at its core the Truth is ever changing, making it valid at that point in time.

For it, Truth, to only change moments later.

So what you thought was true when you were single, is not so true when you are married, for example.

This makes it very difficult for me to criticize people based on their status updates on social media.

Especially when I really, really want to make a 2 cent comment.

A 2 cent comment that usually contradicts all the positive things I keep publishing here.

Only for me to find myself in the same situation in life somewhere down the line.

Life will humble you.

I don’t believe you should be gullible to the extent that you accept everything.

But have an open mind.

“The mind is like a parachute… It only works if we keep it open.”

The Relativity of Time and How Time is Relative

There are so many realities out there.

What might be real to you, what not be real to me.

At that time anyway.

Reality and time work hand in hand, until they don’t.

I found that what I objected to a couple of years ago, is something I fully support now.

You live long enough to become a hypocrite in this world.

I obviously say this based on my reality, but I still have the balls to disagree with yours.

Reality is relative.

Journal About My Almost Mid-Life Crisis

What I love about BlackBerry – you know, the old ‘Berrys with the QWERTY keypads – is the feeling of the buttons underneath my thumbs.

Reminds me of those old “Tetris” handheld consoles during your GameBoys era.


Should have used PSP instead of GameBoy some people won’t be able to relate.

Feeling nostalgic this afternoon.

As I said my goodbyes to a friend.

I would like to call him a friend.

Something I wasn’t too conscious about ever since I started the business.

In fact on a similar business model before this one, I used rapport for financial gains more than anything else.

But now it’s different.

I really enjoy people… I say that like it’s an achievement.

Especially like-minded oaks to help me when I’m down.

But people, some, can be awful at times, it usually spoils the view I have for the rest of them.

I speak like I’m an alien, separate from the human species, but like ja sometimes I feel that’s the case.

But it’s really nice when you meet someone who as a positive outlook.

Who laughs about life’s struggles but chooses to focus on making the best of things instead of bitching about them.

Not to denounce bitching, it has miraculous delightful benefits, but if that’s your only point view then life will continue to sucks for you.

‘Mean if being negative is your dominant reference point, life then for you is going to BE just that… Negative.

Since that is what you think with your thoughts, you affirm with your words and follow through with your actions.

That’s why I liked listening to some motivational CD a day.

A 15 min positive and/or instructive and/or motivation and/or inspiring read a day also does the trick too.

Come to think of it things are incredibly, sickly tough right now maybe it’s because of not practicing these simple daily principles on the daily.

Staying with the Mrs who I promised to marry while my wages can’t even take care of myself.

Only to have her being unexpectedly retrenched, she’s throwing the book to those fuckers by the way, leading to the creditors hounding her and the repo man gunning for her car.

What kind of a man am I to let my woman suffer like that?

Such very inspiring self talks I am told by my mentors to avoid having.

But on the flip side there’s a lot to be grateful for.

Even though there’s not much flexibility in our choices.

But I always says it’s only temporary.

Here I am trying to tell her that everything that is happening is bringing us closer to our goals…with nothing to show for it.

Which is true.

But it’s not her truth.

But I am grateful for choice.

As bad as things are, someone out there would give their left ball to live in what I call struggle.

The opportunities I have right now that I am taking for granted would drive someone else out there up the wall.

That’s why injecting the day with some form of positivity day in and day out will eventually train my mind to see these opportunities and allow me to capitalize on them.

“For every failure, there is an equal and opposite success.”

It’s just a matter of looking, intentionally for it.

“Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you: For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened..”

I’m sorry.

Please forgive me.

Thank you.

I love you.

Why I Believe Critics ROCK!!

After reading a comment made by Thubelihle and not being able to fully express my thoughts in the comment box, I thought it best to write this entry.

I think they {critics, haters, media, family members, etc;-)} criticises what they see contradicts their own personal material worth or material status or mindset.

This contradiction leads to a reactive response in the form of jealousy, to name one.

With comments like “…I can’t stand butt-kissers” or “Musa stole his way into becoming a millionaire” or whatever negative energies directed towards that particular seeker of wealth.

So instead of being inspired by her growth and success, they instead criticise with the idea of casting a shadow of suspension and doubt on her name.

Attempting by all means to diminish its magnificence and level of your height above the mundane.

Trying with every chance they get to bring her achievements and EXTRAordinary way of life down to their level

The way I see it, they HAVE to exists at a lower level than you in order for them to “bring you down,” if you get what I mean.

So that means you function at a higher plane than most.

Especially those who cast stones at you in the form of blasphemy (at times even literally) hoping with all their might that you would buckle and break and fall down to your knees.

Down to your knees so that you can be at the same eye level as them.

Making you temporarily lie on a plane which you have totally grown out of.

It’s like being angry at someone who is doing her honours at university level, while you are still trying to get use to the idea of going through primary school…

I think, and I might be wrong, that they feel a sense of worthiness from the attention they get from like minded individuals.

And it is because of this sense of purpose that they continue to work backwards by being antagonists.

You can never advance in life while making a habit of frustrating over the growth and success of your fellow men.

In rugby it’s like swinging the ball sideways, attracting the traffic – in the form of those who promote your ignorance by lending an equally ignorant ear – but not moving forward.

What I love best about their existence is that them focusing and fussing about your advancement, is only pushing you even closer towards a lifestyle of more success, more wealth, more prosperity.

My motivation is from an example you can experience first hand.

Take a moment and be conscious of a particular thing you or someone else is complaining about.

By fully aware of the emotions associated while with the passion or repetitiveness of this thing you might be complaining about.

Now notice how not only is the “problem” getting worse, but more things to complain about come channeling into your life.

Or anything else that would justify the way you might be feeling at the time, for that matter.

That is where the express “When it rains, it pours” comes from.

Now take this proposed “principle” and apply against anyone who might be against your achievements & advancement in your life…

It can only benefit you, and not the antagonist.

That is why I welcome constructive or attempted destructive criticism because I win either way.

And that is why I, Musawenkosi Tshoaele, believe haters are the best!!
