30/06/2014 ~ #NicholasA ~ Never Loose Faith In You – 2!

Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not yet seen. Faith speaks of the things that are to come not the ones that already are.

 

The fact that you are not a major influencer of current happenings in our society today does not mean you will not become one some day.

Dale Partridge once said: If you can’t do great big things, do great little things.”

 

It is the little things that sums up to become the mighty things that we celebrate today. A man who has been found fateful and competent in little will certainly gain recommendations for higher things.

All you need to do is to keep believing in your abilities. Know that you become better by doing more. Your skills improve and you become more confident of yourself.

 

Only he who attempts the absurd is capable of achieving the impossible ~ Miguel de Unamuno

 

No matter how big you want to achieve in life, until you start, there is no telling how far you can go.

 

All you need do is to patiently prepare, wait for, recognize and utilize opportunities that comes your way. And you will surely get there.

 

Keep on keeping on.

 

Have a great week.

 

I honour you.

27/06/2014 ~ Be Nice, It’s Not Just About You All The Time!

One of the things I have come to understand while working with different individuals over time is the fact that some persons have not learnt how to keep family issues at home and truly be at their work or study place with the attention and right frame of mind that it deserves.  
That’s why you find some persons acting weird or unfriendly even in the morning when they just resumed.  
 
They will easily pick up a quarrel over issues that do not demand it and they will give you unfriendly response when you need their services or help.
 
Though this is not professional, and such individuals must learn to actually “be at work or study place when they are there” and lock up on whatever might be happening in their personal lives while they are at work, we still need to learn to work with such persons whenever we encounter one.  
 
The first thing you must know is that, Everyone you meet is fighting their own battles (health, relationship, family, financial etc.), learn to be gentle. Quarreling with them or trying to point out they are wrong at that point in time will definitely not help matters. 
 
Try to understand what’s causing their frustration and anger if you are close to them, otherwise, learning to bear with them is key. 
 
Ignore how bad they treated you and cut them some slack, but when you get to realize that it’s becoming too consistent, you might need talking to his or her boss or friend.
 
And most importantly, do not allow them to ruin your own day. You owe yourself a happy day.
 
Finally, do say a prayer for them and wish the well. 
 
#HappyFriday
 
I honour you.

26/06/2014 ~ #NicholasA ~ An Amazing Day ~ Part 2!

Let me share with you an article I read recently. It’s called “The Law of the Garbage Truck”.

Today I hopped in a taxi and we took off for the airport.

 

We were driving in the right lane when suddenly a black car jumped out of a parking space right in front of us. My taxi driver slammed on his brakes, skidded, and missed the other car by just inches.

The driver of the other care whipped his head around and started yelling at us. My taxi driver just smiled and waved at the guy. And I mean, really friendly.

 

So I asked, “Why did you just do that? This guy almost ruined your car and sent us to the hospital”.

This is when my taxi driver taught me what I now call, “The Law of the Garbage Truck.”

 

He explained that many people are like garbage truck. They run around full of garbage (frustration, anger, and disappointments, grudges, etc.). As their garbage piles up, they need a place to dump it and sometimes they’ll dump it on you on slightest chance they get.

 

Don’t take it personally. Just smile, wave and wish them well, and move on. Don’t take their garbage and spread it to other people at work, at home, or on the streets. 

 

The key thing is: you will always come across them everyday, if you take on their garbage, your Amazing day is gone and you might become the new garbage truck. 

 

Do have a #GarbageFree Thursday!

 

I honour you.

25/06/2014 ~ #NicholasA ~ An Amazing Day!

If we were all given the opportunity to describe in our own view, what an Amazing day is, we would have several perspective but would point in one direction: a day where you achieved something that made you proud of yourself or a day where you surpassed your expectations. 
 
The truth is, the world is not ready to hand you an Amazing day everytime, you have to create that for yourself. That’s why you find out that sometimes you begin a day filled with great smiles,  high hopes and expectations but at the day’s end, you are less motivated than you started it and you’ve become frustrated and unhappy. 
 
This is because you were not in control of your day.  
 
Begin your day by asking yourself this question: How can I make this day Amazing? 
 
It’s a simple question but it’s so powerful. By simply asking yourself “How can I make today amazing?” you make yourself realize that you are in control of how your day goes and how you feel about it. Then, do the things to make it amazing! 
 
Being in control means deciding what you should be doing at every moment and knowing fully well what you hope to achieve. This will help you keep track of yourself.  
 
It also entails you doing more of the things you love doing, even if it is for free, for in there you will always be satisfied.  
 
Thirdly, love the job you do,  your work environment, the course you are studying, the service you render etc. You can never have an Amazing day if you don’t. There is a popular adage that says “a bird in hand is worth more than 10,000 birds in the Bush”. While you aim for a higher job and a better work environment, appreciate the one you have now. It helps you feel satisfied in the end if the day. 
 
To be continued..  
 
Have a blessed Wednesday.  
 
I honour You!

24/06/2014 ~#NicholasA Love Who You Are!

Specially for you

SuccessJourney

Someone once said, “there is only one person you spend your whole life with, and that is yourself. If you aren’t ok with you, there is an issue”. 
 
The key to living a happy life begins with you. You can never feel true happiness if you are not satisfied with the man or woman you’ve grown to become. 
 
You must learn to tell yourself every now and then that you are special and that you deserve the good things of life. 
 
This does not mean that there should be no effort to improve, what it means is that you are celebrating yourself for having come thus far and achieved this much. 
 
It will help to boost your confidence to pursue the next big dream.
 
In places where you have succeeded, some persons failed, the things you find easy, some would not even dare venture it…

It will help to boost your confidence to pursue the next big dream.
 
In places where you have succeeded, some persons failed, the things you find easy, some would not even dare venture it, the dreams you have, a lot of people are not thinking in that direction. 
 
It all indicates that you are unique and special in your own way and that’s why at the end of every post I send out, I would always add “I honour you”. 
 
But lets not forget, every physical manifestation has a spiritual foundation and thus you must appreciate Him who has given you grace and privilege to have come this far. 
 
In like manner, you must also learn to forgive yourself in areas where you have failed and have not measured up. If you don’t, it creates a failure mentality in your mind and this hinders your ability to dream and achieve. 
 
Have a blissful Tuesday. 
 
I honour You!

23/06/2014 ~#NicholasA ~ The Makers, The Wonderers, The Watchers

SuccessJourney

In every society you find these people: The Makers, The Wonderers, The Watchers.

The Makers are the change agent. They have dreams and they pursue these dream with all they’ve got. They have the mindset that every other thing they have is to help them achieve that dream and they go all out at it. And they create new things, new achievements, new heights, and new possibilities, new rules. They are never afraid to fail and whenever they do, they pick themselves up and have a go at it again. They make history.

The Wonderers are always amazed at new things, they want to know how it happened and what made it happen. They are fascinated and will quickly embrace it if given the opportunity but they will never create anything new themselves. They are the history tellers.

The Watchers are not bothered about new things. They do not dream…
