Born Again

kinopoisk.ruI think Constantine was the best DC movie that DC have ever made.

A close number 2 being  V for Vendetta.

Shazam, Aquaman, Wonder Woman, Justice League, and Batman vs Superman, were okayish.

I take that back, Wonder Woman was freaking awesome!

The Dark Knight Trilogy were on a league of their own.

I think the struggle they [DC] are having is marring all these movies into leading up to an “Avengers” kind of build-up…”Justice League Part II” in this case because Justice League wasn’t so great.

I don’t see that happening as effectively as Marvel did with their movies.

But if they have the money, and the time, I would like to see how successful they would be in their attempt.

I love the planning that went into Avengers: Endgame.

Talk about reverse engineering, right?

Knowing what you want at the end of the day, and then working & planning backwards from there.

It’s either that or I love the idea of seeing the good guys not living happily ever after.

Like in Troy.

I plan like this for most of my smaller goals, like getting to work on time.

I need to use it for my bigger goals.

So for example when I need to be at work by 10 AM and I’m using public transport, I would calculate that I need to be in town by 9 AM so that it would give me an hour dedicated to travelling to work.2f3c4b27ad724469ac8e336ca03c1c5f (1)

This means I need to be in the taxi cab from my place going to town by 8 AM.

So I need to be up by 7 AM.

Then Musa sets alarm clock for 7 AM.

But all of this begins by knowing what my aim is.

What is your aim?

Whether we would like to admit it or not, we are goal creating beings.

We are living in linear plane where we have a forward momentum towards everything in our world.

And since we are going forward like we are, we can’t help but to be heading towards something.

Some are heading towards a vague idea of what they want to achieve.

The few are heading to towards a crystal, clear idea of exactly what they want.7-habits.jpg

And one of the way they gain that vision is through reverse engineering planning.

I think I got this idea from reading those self-help books that were available in the library my aunt took me to, so she can use the time to study.

I used the time to read all sorts of works until I dared myself to read one thick book by Dr. Stephen R. Covey.

That book opened me up to a whole new world.

Re-reading that book opened up my brain to a new kind of living.

I was born-again.

The BS Story You Keep Telling Yourself…

I just realized something, I’m 35 and I don’t have a pension fund.

This was a result of me jumping from one company to another.

Yes, it’s my fault.

Leaving permanent, 4 year government job I had in favor of fulltime stock trading, was a very risky move.

That stunt came back to bite me in the ass, when that venture failed.

Mainly because I did not initially find someone who was already succeeding in what I wanted to do.

And modelling their success habits that will allow me to be as successful.

Mentorship, would have this most very lucrative for me.

I had to go to corporate world with zero pension fund, bouncing from one pension fund-less job to another.

This was due to the kind of temporary jobs I’ve been getting.

Temps jobs don’t come pension benefits.

Now because I’ve been relying on a company to determine my future financial security, I’m left caught with my dick in my hand.

I’ve been relying on other people to provide a level of security that they themselves aren’t aware of.

There’s no power there.

That part of my life has been titled as one of my greatest failure.

But I’ve now found that it’s one of my greatest successes.

Because of the lessons it has taught me.

More of a warning.

That you are leaving yourself too exposed if you success depends on someone else’s decision.

Your chances of success will tilt in your favour when you take 100% ownership of your level of success in your life.81x2aSRQqGL

Saying that anyone or any institution is the reason behind why you’re not getting ahead in life, is a bullshit story you keep telling yourself.

So much so that you believe it.

And because of your belief, this has become your reality.

Just because things are dire for now, does not mean I’m f***ed for life.

Especially when books by Anthony Robbins paint a different picture of my possible future.

Replace Your S** t Habits With Good Ones

I kept on seeing and hearing the name Simon Sinek being projected in my head.

Simon Sinek.

As if stuck in the frontal lobe of my brain.

Simon Sinek.

All this, haunting, while trying to sleep.

So here I am, writing about him.

I don’t know much about him.

He was first brought to my attention by a business partner who has a background in medicine.

Google Sinek.

From the little I know of him is that he’s a speaker.

He speaks about most about leadership. On what defines a leader and what drives her. Reasons why they are true leaders. Amongst other things.

He’s available on different social media sites, I also follow him on Twitter and IG.

He’s an author as well, he wrote Start With Why.

And there are lots of videos on the ‘Tube that have he’s talks.

I think there’s a vid of one of his talks I posted in one of my blogs that I thought was awesome.

There’s a bias that comes with being a leader that I want to take advantage of.

The monetary benefits of being paid to solve problems being one of them.

It’s as if followers create problems while leaders get paid to solve them.

So I’ve been listening to some of his audios as well. Him, John Maxwell and Gary Vaynerchuk are the 3 guys I’ve been filling my head with of late.

And Eric Thomas. #TGIM

I guess I can be obsessed with certain things in my life, such as my personal development.

If I don’t invest the time for it, noone else will.

Then I will just be like the rest of them, blaming my job or spouse or community or the government or the gods for my current, undesirable situations.

Not realising that the true problem here is me.

I fix me, all else gets fixed.

It’s an inside job.

Take Care of The Garden of Your Thoughts

plum-blossom-roofline-graybox__page-header-gallery

Trying to get this blog thing going. but I’m coming from a dark place.

Think when you allow yourself to be ruled by your emotions then you will be at their mercy.

It’s a special kind of laziness when you don’t take control of your thoughts.

And you go through the emotions.

We sometimes forget that how what we think, creates our lives.

Yup, that’s what As A Man Thinketh says.

Free download on Play Store or iStore.

It’s like reverse engineering.

Believing before you see it.

Reminds of a Dr. Dyer book title.

If you are looking for a certain outcome then you need to see it before you can have it.

By exposing yourself to things that are in alignment with what you seek.

Before you can have it in your hand, you need to see it in your mind. ~ Bob Proctor

Change your environment.

Hang around those people you want to see yourself becoming.

Read about the things you want for yourself often.

Add pictures around you that correspond with the things you want to attract.

Sometimes the things we take for granted are the things that are of most value.

They don’t cost much, but they are priceless.

Like your thoughts.

Every now and again we need to remove the weeds that grow in the garden of our thoughts.

So they don’t cross pollinate with the other wonderful thoughts that grow in your garden.

Proven Methods of Self-Improvement Because of Their Ability to Rewire Your Brain… 

I’ve been meaning to write another article about affirmations.

About what are affirmations and affirmation examples I use to when writing them out.

But I wasn’t writing them out of late.

Trust me I’m no affirmations expert or anything.

All that I blog about are from things I’ve read or experienced that I’m sharing with you, in the hopes that you would jump on it to add to your personal growth.

Like in this case, I’m sharing the wisdom I’m reading over the Think and Grow Rich book.

It says that written affirmations that are read out loud daily and with emotion do wonders towards building faith in the achievement of the things you are affirming.

Because a repeated statement you tell yourself increases your belief about that statement.

And the stronger your belief the better your chances of getting it.

How?

Like Jim Rohn says,don’t take that class.

But if really want to know then my suggested reads are The Science Of Getting Rich and Think and Grow Rich. 

They explain the mechanics that come with the power of faith through repeated affirmations, and how they can work for you too.

Reminds me of a list of affirmations that I got from a gorgeous lady I had a crush on, but I was too possessive and she was also seeing someone so I stopped heckling her because it was getting too much and I wanted more but she didn’t, it was a mess shame… Drama. 

Anyways read that shit. 

It will change your life. 

I’m sorry. 

Please forgive me. 

I love you. 

Thank you.

How to Be the Captain of Your Ship

What is your objective?

What do you want to achieve?

What is your intention?

What DO you want?

Because when you’re focused and clear on the “what” the “how” will show up.

And all that you need to do from there is to take advantage of the opportunity that will show up for you.

You must put all your energy in the “what.”

You must put aside the anxiety & worry & fear & doubt that comes with figuring the “how.”

You must visualize and imagine and see in your mind’s eye the end result of what you would like to see happen.

Your end objective.

Write it down every morning when you wake up.

Write it down every evening when you go to bed.

Let your brain attract ways, better and easier ways, of attracting it for you.

And that’s just one way to actively use the Law of Attraction.

Stay focused and the Law will honor your focus with opportunities for you to take inspired action on.

I love you.

Thank you.

5 Reasons Why It Is That Some Are Blessed More Than Others

Reason #1

It could be as simple as because they practice the discipline of thanksgiving every day. Oh ja that reminds me:
(1) I am thankful for witnessing the joy in my mother’s face and the dancing moves she and my aunts were making to the tune of the Christmas spirit because it filled my heart with that warm fuzzy feeling that at times feels foreign to me. It puts me back into the Vortex.

(2) I am thankful for the relationships I have and continue to establish because they put me in a position & choice to give love to them which in turn makes me experience happiness. And I think that is what life is all about: “Finding” Happiness.

(3) I am thankful for for my family because I see it in their eyes that they would move mountains for me to make sure that I am happy, loved, safe & well taken cared of. And I love them for that.

Reason #2

Now that is out of the way, I believe some are more blessed than others become they give blessings to all things, good or bad.

Because they know, in some form or another, that in whatever it that is happening there is a good reason behind it, even if at first sight there IS nothing good about it.

It is as if they know, in some way, that we all live in an orderly universe and all things make sense, or return back to order, eventually it’s just a matter of riding it out until you do.

Reason #3.
Why is it that some are blessed more than others? Maybe it;s because they have faith. No actually we all have faith, what we need to strengthen is having faith in things going right for us, even against all odds, than having faith in things going wrong for us.
I used to be under the charge of a team leader who, no matter what happened, she turned projects or tasks or instructions from management into negative things. Always making sure we knew were she stood on the matter, which was not in a positive light mostly (come to think of it I wonder why she hasn’t linked this negative thinking to her wavering health…oh well), even if it was good news.
She did it so well that even some of her/ my team members adopted her thinking. It was an amazing thing to watch, that was.
How suggesting a certain way of looking at something to someone can, with persistence, influence that person’s view of life. Subtle yet effective. Thank God I am an active reader of Think And Grow Rich.
Reason #4

I guess maybe that’s another reason reason why some are more blessed than others, maybe it is because they hang around with people who FEEL blessed and make it vocal of how fortunate they are to be breathing, to have a job or money coming in that puts food on the table or have an idea of what they want out of life and have a plan that they are executing to reach those goals or other “insignificants” they make significant.

(It reminds me of a Jim Rohn article about Evaluating Associations, Part 1 and you read also read Evaluating Associations, Part 2 here.)

You know, those people that achieve things that some of us are jealous of that we eventually equate their success with sleeping with the boss, drug dealings, the devil, corruption, luck, silver spoons, jean sizes, the stars, witchcraft, etc?
It’s funny how that works isn’t it?
How people criticize that which they want to become and wonder why they aren’t getting it? Yes I meant “getting it” in both ways.
You can’t expect to become something you don’t like. You brain won’t allow it.

The brain is set up to make you avoid things that would harm you. It’s like your on-board survival kit. So if you bad mouthing things tells the brain that those are the things you want to avoid, then you turn around and yearn for them?

The logic, pun unintended, behind that thinking, pun intended, is screwy.

Reason #5.

They see themselves as blessed. This line of thinking most see as arrogance, I see it as Deliberate Creation – regularly “acting as if” until life gives you ways of actually living and become the things you are acting out. I have come to a point where I don’t give a hoot what others say, especially when it comes to getting what I want in life so this reason works best for me.

“A belief is only a thought you keep thinking.” – Abraham-Hicks
So keep thinking a thought until you believe, i.e. affirm everyday of every morning and every night the words, “I am blessed” and therefore you are.
And if the above doesn’t come easy for you, then I invite you to work at it until it does. You have everything to gain and nothing to lose when you do.
