Once upon a time in a faraway land, there lived a wise man and his disciple. One day in their travels, they saw a hut in the distance. As they approached they realized that it was occupied in spite of its extremely poor appearance. In that desolate place where there were no crops and no trees, a man lived with his wife, three young children and a thin, tired cow. Since they were hungry and thirsty Continue reading Our Biggest Obstacle
The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2015 annual report for this blog.
Here’s an excerpt:
A San Francisco cable car holds 60 people. This blog was viewed about 240 times in 2015. If it were a cable car, it would take about 4 trips to carry that many people.
In life sometimes we all feel like giving up but we simply can’t, here are ten reasons why:
REASON 1: You have already started. There is no need in stopping half way. I am sure stopping half way would not bring back all the time you have invested in ensuring that you achieve this project/plan.
REASON 2: You are almost there. Most times, problems don’t come until you are almost there. Remember, one painful thing about life is not achieving something you knew you could achieve, something that was almost within your reach. Continue reading 10 Reasons Why You Don’t Need To Give Up
A farmer, on the verge of death, called his two sons to him:
“My good and grateful sons, I’m not long for this world. Everything that I leave to you can be found in our vineyard.”
Hello! Happy New Year 2015.
Last year was really great for me with loads of activities. To you my dear readers, please take this as an apology for not filling you in on with the happenings in my 2014 which ended with my marriage to my beautiful and lovely wife.
As I start the new year, here are my key goals:
1. To become a better me: Although this sounds cliche, I have never really taken the time to give this more meaning until recently when I started living with my wife. She has made me resolve to always be better. I want to be a better man, a better husband (even if I have just being one for 3 weeks), the best father (when the kids come) and to be on top of my league at work.
2. To reach my financial target: Shortly after my marriage, I and my wife sat down to plan for this year. We set a target for ourselves and we hope to achieve them. From daily to weekly to monthly expenses, we crossed all the t’s and dotted the i’s.
3. To be Thankful: Gratitude has always being something I do but not with intent. So this year, I would be grateful with intent. To begin this, I would start by thanking GOD for the gift of life. Also I want to thank YOU. Yes ‘YOU!’, for being there to read my posts.
4. To meet more people: I am introvert. This is not something to shy about. I wish to meet more people and do more for people because I learnt from my preparations for my wedding that it is in meeting and helping people that helps you get more from life.
Now the year has started, and so much has started with it. I pray for peace in my country especially in this election year when violence peaks that GOD will help us elect a better leader.
Do have a splendid year and please feel free to share with me how you plan to spend the year on all areas of life.
Although I cannot verify the author of the story below, it surely passes the message of why we must act on our goals early enough in life.
“I got a masters in mathematics from Columbia, and for twelve years I worked as an investor. I made good money the whole time.
On some days I’d lose, but on most days I’d win, and every year I made good money. But then I got greedy.
I thought I’d found a sure thing.
There was a pharmaceutical company coming out with a new drug, and I got a tip that it was going to be approved by the FDA. And the sources who were telling me this had always been right before.
So I bet everything. I thought: ‘I’m going to double my money really quick, and then I’m getting out. I’m going to use the money to start my own business.’ I even borrowed money to put into this stock. I was that sure. 99%.
And the next day I got a call from my broker: ‘I don’t know what’s happening,’ he said. ‘It’s dropping fast.’ And sure enough, later that day they announced that the FDA had rejected the drug. Suddenly I’d lost everything, and I didn’t even own my apartment anymore.
I couldn’t get out of bed for months. I stopped eating and dropped to 125 lbs. Then one day my girlfriend tells me, ‘If you don’t get out of bed, you’re going to die.’ So I got a job as a stock boy at a retail store.
Twenty years later, I’m managing ten of those stores. I wish that I’d just become a stock boy in the first place.”
The best time to have planted a tree is twenty years ago, the next best time is now. Action Changes Things (ACT now).
Yes you should do it NOW.
