5 Tips To Living a Successful Life
I think he didn’t notice me entering the compound as his eyes were fixed to a particular position. Looks like he was deep in his thought, only God knew what he was thinking.
I entered the house went upstairs to the balcony, the dude was still in the exact position he was when I saw him from the gate. I was a little bit startled as i have never seen Johnson being so deep in his thought. I visited to know if he will be able to go with me to the field for a football match. I stood for a while staring at him before he could realise that he wasn’t alone. He turned around smiled at me and came for a handshake.
Johnson had been staring at a brand new car parked in front of the building opposite to his. When i enquired why he was staring at the car, he replied ”that car is so beautiful, i wish i could own something like that someday but i know it isn’t possible. This car is way too expensive.”
Yes he wanted to own that car, he wished he could ride on such a car someday, but something keeps telling him Boy do not dream too much, this is not for people like you, you can never be in such a position, think of something lesser.
I believe this is the same with a lot of us. We aspire to do great things, to make our dreams come real, but thoughts like this keeps discouraging us.
I have been in such a situation, and i sought for solutions, I met people who have attained to the height which I wish to get to, I read from the experiences of great people. After my little research and discoveries, my mode of thinking changed, it is these measures i took that i am going to share with you today. So relax, sit back and make sure you carefully read this to the end. By the time you have practised all the points listed here, you will be feeling successful already.
How Successful People Speak and Think
Know The Right Thoughts and Choose Them:
There is power in spoken words. You have to discover the power in your thoughts and words. Most times our problem starts from our thoughts. When our thoughts are been manipulated by our number one enemy, we tend to think differently, our actions and attitudes changes.
We are attracted to what we constantly think about. If you always think positively, you are going to be a positive person. If you think joyful you are going to be a joyful person. If you think rich, I bet you are going to be rich. If you think happy, you are going to be happy. It is so impossible to remain discouraged unless you keep thinking discouraging thoughts.
So always focus your thoughts on the positive and you will recieve a positive result.
Know The Power in Your Words:
Just like my friend, he had a negative thought about his future, his words weren’t that of success and this could be very disastrous.
I immediately rebuked him when he made that statement, and if you too are lying on that same plane, you have got to make a change. Our words are self-fulfilling prophecies. If you give your thoughts the opportunity to defeat you and then give birth to negative ideas through your words, you action will follow the suit. We need to be deeply careful of what we think and especially what comes out of our mouth. I keep holding ‘thought’ and ‘word’ together because i believe in the saying ”Out of the abundance of the heart, the mouth speaketh”. Let your words be that of success if you wish to be successful.
Speak to Change Situations:
Now look take a look at this brief story:
Few months ago Rita’s dad was a victim of partial stroke. He earlier had a High Blood Pressure and i think that gave rise to the stroke issue. He was on the sick bed for a couple of weeks looking so lifeless, he could hardly move a part of his body. I have never met him in such condition before, this was the first of its kind.
My friend Rita was so confused, and each time she looks at her dad, her heart keeps telling her that he was never gonna come out of this situation alive. But thank God she didn’t allow this thought of hers to take over her words. Whenever she has that feeling, all she did was to say aloud ” My dad isn’t going to die!”. This actually worked well for her, because today that same man who had been lying on the sick bed is standing upright, walking comfortably with his two feet.
Instead of sitting back and thinking about our misfortune and failures, we should always strive to get back on track, speak to change our situation and intensify this with a bit of hard work and persistence.
Speak Words of Blessing:
Do you know that our words can affect our children for evil or good? Do you also know that as a parent your words can profoundly influence the direction of your child’s life?
With our words, we have the ability to to shape the future of anyone over whom we have influenced.
Negative words tends to destroy a person quicker than you can ever imagine. It is so impossible to speak negatively about a person and then turn around and expect that person to be blessed. So is it with ourselves, We cannot keep vomiting negative words about ourselves and then hope to emerge successful in our endeavors. We ought to speak words of blessings, life changing words, positive word that will take us to the height we wish to attain.
Format Your Mental System:
It sounds so embarrassing for a blogger or any other person out there to look at his or her computer and say ” i hate this computer, it never does what i want it to do.”
One can have the most powerful computer in the world but when it is programmed with the wrong software, believe me you are as good as not having a computer.
The same thing works with humans, we are wonderfully made, we are programmed for success; but when we allow devious viruses to access our minds, subtly changing our software or corrupting our values, we go through life with low self-esteem, worries, fears, feelings of inadequacy and insecurity. To worsen the whole scenario, we pass on our negative attitudes to others.
Change the way you think, our emotions responds to what we think about. If you go around thinking angry thoughts, you are going to be angry, if you think sad thoughts all the time, you will be sad. Think thoughts of success and victory, thoughts of happiness, and you will find yourself living at your full potential. Let go of the past and focus on the future because it has something pleasant for you.
