“The Opposite of Courage In Our Society Is Not Cowardice … It Is Conformity.”

So I took a week’s worth of leave and coming back to work felt awkward.

In the sense that I could see things from an objective perspective.

There’s so much BS office politics here.

What with the whining over things we can’t control over, since none of us hold the majority shares in the company for one.

The brooding climate at work made me laugh because, like most here, I wasn’t doing anything much to improve my situation.

Instead, I found comfort in complaining about the same things I was complaining about the day before.

Not realizing that I worked hard to be in this ugly situation I was in.

Working hard in doing the wrong things.

All thanks to the daily discipline of bad choices I consciously made day in and day out.

And I was arrogant enough to remain on this path which has led me to where I am right now.

There’s no one to blame but myself.

So what if the business is making as if it’s finding ways to make it’s workforce resign.

With conniving ways of tricking us into pushing for targets and then dishing out sanctions for the manner in which the targets where reached.

Then again, why should I stay?

Yes, life will trip you up and get you down in the dirt.

But, with just a little research – you’ll find others who have had it far worse than you but still managed to work in making things better…eventually.

“Success is the progressive realization of a worthy ideal.”

I was just too lazy in putting in the work it takes to eventually coming out a winner.

Doing enough of the right things for a long period of time, will give you the results you want.

The magic word here is Consistency.

We just quit too soon.

When people are looking down the barrel of failure in their lives,
they will do whatever it takes to get themselves moving, something,
anything, to start climbing upward toward the point of survival.

And then, once they get to the point where they’re keeping their heads
above water, they start heading back down again.

As they start getting close enough to the failure line that they can see it coming, they go,
“Whoops, I’m headed towards failure!” and then they do whatever it
takes to turn their trajectory around and start heading back up … and
the cycle repeats.” – Jeff Olsen, The Slight Edge

This was laid out perfectly when Jeff Olson spoke about it in the sample of his newly edited The Slight Edge that I have a link to for you here.

You Are What You Accept

4694342-Jay-Z-Quote-Don-t-ever-go-with-the-flow-Be-the-flowYou teach people how you would like to be treated, by how you react to what they say or do.

Either by acceptance of what they do to you or by you reprimanding them.

To correct someone on how you would like to be treated, I believe, comes from raising your standards.

Low standards allows them to continue “taking advantage” of you, while raising them educates them on how you would like to be treated.

It takes courage to put yourself first.

It takes courage futhi to “equip” people on how you like to be treated, in order for them to bring out the best in you.

It’s a win-win.

Reminds me of how I cringe when people organize events at the last minute and expect me to participate.

9 times out of 10 I don’t. If I do, it is with a closed heart.

Give me time to think it over in my mind as a typical melancholy. Don’t pull a sanguine move on me and expect to me to be jolly about it.

But then again I’m an introvert, so being “out there” drains my energy, at times.

I’m just at a point in my life, with all that’s happening, where I cannot “go with the flow” that goes against my core values.

Living a lie is tiring.

There is power outside your comfort zone.

The Fixer

B33rFzqCYAIREuFSometimes when the road ahead looks very dark, anxiety levels go up.

That’s when I come to you God to help shed some light.

But if the road I’m taking vele has no street lights then I’m relieved knowing that you are by my side.

I’m taking this knee with this post because I’m also in dire need so my ancestors need to be also involved in this prayer.

Because without them I would be here, and without You they wouldn’t have been.

I light my candles and incense with this update in gratitude of what I already have.

Thank you for our business.

Thank you for our jobs.

Thank you for the shelter you are providing us.

Thank you for the water and lights that we sometimes take for granted.

Thank you for the food we eat.

Our perfect health and the rich relationships we have.

Thank you for the clothes on our backs.

And the large amounts of income that come to us through various sources, with increasing frequency.

All praise goes to you God.

I am bound to make flops along the way.

I just want to thank you for softening the falls.

Thank you for giving me the courage to fail forward.

Because there is no learning without falling. And I need to learn so I can grow to be my better self.

Continue guiding us through to our better self.

Yours in gratitude,

Amen

When Death, Time & Love Write Back 

I don’t like movies that make me cry.

Watching Collateral Beauty starring Will Smith had me squinting my eyes.

collateral_beautyHolding my tears back with my eyelids.

It’s been a while since I’ve watched a movie like that.

Evoking so much emotions then throwing me out of wack after it was done with me.

It was Mr. Smith’s best performance to date.

Enjoyed listening to the story behind the scenes on how he also experienced loss during the making of the movie.

How he just went all out in giving it all through the film.

Can’t wait until it’s out on Blu-ray.

It’s worth the watch.

Please forgive me.

I’m sorry.

Thank you.

I love you.

Who You With?

heroes

I didn’t really get the concept of fighting for what you want.

Not consciously.

I’m a lover so this fighting thing is foreign to me.

But when I took a step back to see how things are currently for me.

I see myself wondering further away from, what I thought, was my path to freedom.

A path worth fighting for.

Reminds me of a CD I listened to about by farmer turned multimillionaire business owner about feeding the dream.

Protecting the dream.

There are lots of dream stealers out there.

Yourself included.

So dunking you mind in an environment of people that keep your dream alive, is vital.

Not only for your ultimate goal in life but for your everyday success as well.

I’m sorry.

Please forgive me.

Thank you.

I love you.

Blasphemy Is A Judgement Upon Another

I feel inspired to write this update. Maybe it’s the God in me that is willing me to express Her opulence in the form of this post.

Who knows (God is Who), maybe it’s the God in you that is making me writing this for a more public understanding of a New understanding on what God is, in the Now.

To do away with what has been written in the Bible would be to do away with the many mouths that have been fed in His name.

What I will then attempt to do is gently add on to this almost Wholly Scripture – since God has no beginning – although She is the Beginning, and has no end – although He is the End…and is neither.

The Alpha and Omega.

The beginning of a circle, and just when you come to the end of it, you begin all over again.

Timeless.

A “Just IS.”

That is why you “can’t be” who You are.

“Created in the image and likeness of God.”

You are God.

YOU ARE GOD…miniaturized.

All that God can do you can do, with effortless ease at that.

That is why “Everything is possible for him who believes.”

That is why the Bible, the Church, the Priest, Pastors and Religion cannot be the seen as an authority of God.

Only God is an authority of God and the God you are looking for for salvation is found within, in your Soul.

You are not your skin, your name, your clothes, your titles, your conditions & circumstances.

You are your Soul.

An unlimited Spiritual Being that creates the skins, the name, the clothes, the titles, the conditions & circumstances.

It is the God in you that stirs restlessly when it encounters an external illusion, of its own creation, that influences the Mind and Body to the point of despair and inaction thus rendering the human powerless.

For it is in action that we have the power, and in inaction that we do not have the power.

Everything that is contained within the Bible, which might be the bases of what Religion is preaching, which have to do with fear, punishment, segregation, anger, and power over instead of power with, revenge, and death limits the Mind, thus limits the Body & contradicts the Soul which God is.

It “blocks” the flow of energy, the energy contained in everything that is matter.

And is thus unnatural.

And God is Nature, God is Love, and Love is without limits & condition.

If I give you free will to do as you please and then punish you for doing so, contradicts who I am.

I give you free will yet be aware of the circumstances of your actions.

Particularly the Law of Giving & Receivng.

That which you make another experience, you will one day experience.

The conscious use of this Natural Law will bring to you riches, happiness, laughter, success, prosperity joy and peace beyond reason – for insist riches, happiness, laughter, success, prosperity joy and peace just ideas, ideas which you can repeatedly give to another openly with abundance or silently with abundant, for the sole purpose of benefit to the other & not to con the Law for personal gratification.

Google these Natural Laws of Life/ Success so you can first become abundantly rich within so you can be abundantly rich without, as in the physical realm:

  • The Law Of Vaccum
  • The Law Of Opposites
  • The Law Of Giving
  • The Law Of Purpose In Life
  • The Law Of Cause & Effect
  • The Law Of Effortless Ease
  • The Law Of Intention & Desire
  • The Law Of Detachment

.

Live life abundantly by giving what you seek.

Make sure though that you do this as service rendered to others and not for personal gain.

Don’t alter the law or less you will remain at a loss.

By giving to others you intrinsically give to your Self.

Allow this act of giving to multiply by giving that R2 because you honestly want the other to prosper.

Because what you cause another to experience, you will one day experience.

The treasure is hidden within.

Abundantly yours,

Musawenkosi Tshoaele
