Being Better Than Your Old Self 

htwfaip​”The way to get things done,” says  [Charles] Schwab, “is to stimulate competition. I do not mean in a sordid, money-getting way, but in the desire to excel.” 

Ran our of characters for me to post this on Twitter so I’m posting it here.

Thought this was a cool quote.

Competing to be better than who you are.

From a book I’m reading again by Dale Carnegie, How to Win Friends and Influence People. 

Thank you.

I’m sorry.

Please forgive me.

I love you.

“You Are The Average Of The Top Five People You Spend Most Of Your Time With.” – Jim Rohn 

I don’t think you should deny yourself the release that comes from venting.

But don’t make it a habit.

Otherwise you will lose a lot of your blog readers that way.

Venting identifies the problem.

So now that you have IDed the problem, what’s the solution?

I read some where that some women vent to be heard, not that they are looking for a solution from you.

I think that’s weird, but then again men have a nothing box.

I think that’s weirder.

I’m going off topic again.

What I’m saying is that the things you put in your head will show in the kind of attitude you have.

If your head is in the gutter, then your attitude will stink.

Your attitude is something that might be hard to monitor with all the junk we are surrounded with.

From external influences like the news, TV and shitty friends and family who do more to pull you down than to lift you up.

The environment you’re in plays an important role in your thinking.

And I think, for the most part, you do have control over your environment.

Thank you.

I love you.

I’m sorry.

Please forgive me.

You Ever Saw A Scary Movie?

Making a habit of sidelining your life goals because of how hard achieving them will be is a bad habit.

Rather find yourself within the field that runs hand in hand with what you ultimately want in life, even if at the time the pay isn’t good.

Your initial sacrifices coupled with your desire to achieve and succeed in your life’s passion will eventually pay off.

Living life short selling yourself will only lead to regret in your late years.

Rather live a challenging life fighting for your dreams.

Than a quiet one with no stories to tell your grand kids.

I don’t want to be a boring, poor granddad living with my daughter.

Talk about a scary movie.

I love you.
I’m sorry.
Please forgive me.
Thank you.

A Post About Living On Purpose

There have been a lot of events happening to me lately.

Life has been going at such a fast pace the conversation that I had two weeks feels it took place yesterday.

Ending up zoning out and going through the emotions not making any meaningful contributions.

I think the purpose of life is to serve others doing what you love.

So wasting your life being a repetitive zombie, doing the same dead end deal you did the day before, that isn’t taking you closer to what makes you happy… Is simply not living.

But I hear most people don’t know what they want or haven’t had the time to write them down.

If you don’t know what where you are going, you will stay where you are.

I love you.

Thank you.

Fight or Flight

Have you ever wanted something so bad that when it gets to be only centimetres away from you that you become too scared to take it?

When the fight or flight response takes over.

Having to decide whether to run away from it or to fight for what you want.

That internal conflict within you that you find comfort in because of how it leads to you doing anything.

The inaction that has brought you to where you are right now.

Where now you are at the crossroads of your life once again where you have to ask yourself which step to take next…

One of relief,

…freedom,

…peace,

…happiness,

…joy,

…accomplishment,

…love,

…recognition,

…success?

Or do you stay in your current state, hoping – like you have been for the past 5 years – for the change to come.

Change that will never come until you change.

I love you.

Thank you.

Raising Your Standards Changes Your Reality

In his book Awaken The Giant Within, Mr Anthony Robbins mentioned how I should raise my standards as part of the process of changing my life for the better.

A point I am beginning to agree with especially with the stench I have to endure on most mornings when I pass through Bree Taxi Rank.

One of two of the major transportation hubs in Johannesburg that offers commutters public transport to various destinations.

It didn’t use to bother me much, the stench of piss, decay, litter, ponds of sewerage I need to skip over…now that I think about it…it should have…

But now that I am reaching a point in my life when things are slowing down and take the time to take in my environment,  I’m getting picky with some of the things my mind gets exposed to.

I am changing what I used to see as acceptable.

And I will work on taking charge of more things in my life and being deliberate on what I exposed myself on a regular basis.

Bree not being one of them.

I am sorry.

Please forgive me.

Thank you.

I love you.

My WhatsApp Message to You…

“The power of your mind.

There is a saying that says whatever the mind conceives it will achieve, the question what do you spend most of your time thinking about?

With your mind you can be transformed, just by your thinking.

The bible says be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind meaning once your mind is renewed that will transform your life completely.

Renewed mind speak of thinking of new things, new ideas, new possibilities, new ways of living your best life because once those new ideas get into your head then you will want to act on them, transformation then comes because of your action.

I know a lot of people with great ideas but are sitting and doing nothing.

Your mind brings forth vision because you get to see what others don’t see and they will get to see what you think only when you act on your vision and transformation takes place.

The bible also talks about putting the armor of God by wearing the helmet of salvation.

This is because when the devil tries to attack you he attacks you in your mind and once he gets hold of your mind and confuse you with all his lies you will be stuck, you will not do anything about your life.

Guard your mind, feed your mind with great possibilities and stand firm in what you believe you can achieve.

Watch what you listen to because what people say about you comes to your head as a seed and it will start growing when you entertain what they say.

Entertain positive thoughts because positive thoughts will lead to positive action, and positive action will give you positive results.

You are the head and not the tail, above and not beneath.

You hold the key to your bright future, start believing in you and your brilliant ideas and act on those ideas everyday.

You have nothing to lose but a lot to gain because your best life is locked in those brilliant ideas that are in your mind.

Unlock your mind and start acting, start working, start to see your best life in your mind and action will take place.

You deserve the best and you know it because you have been thinking about your best life.

You have the key to that best life.”

This was a message my cousin sent on my WhatsApp.

It was beautiful, especially coming from her.

Thought I should share.

I love you.

Please forgive me.

I’m sorry.

Thank you.
