Success

The illusion of good life is living in credit.

The illusion of good life is a costful life and an enemy to success

The life you want, if I give it to you now, you can live the worst you can in your future. And I will not give you that!

My uncle, when he said this, meant that the quality and quantities of meals I desired and the care I longed to be given were expensive, and would not be achieved at once with what he was delivering then. Yes, we had the worst meals in the neighbourhood, but that care and quality I desired in my life and my meals, respectively, was an illusion of good life. He meant that affording what we can afford is never wrong. But we mostly do so at a scale of costs that are fatal in the books of either our success or our true happiness and satisfaction.

I didn’t see that the cheaper meals, and my going for a month without having tasted meat, among other things, allowed much to be left in the hands of the provider, my uncle. Left with a bit more the selfless provider would move on to pump money into our pockets after each gig I and other boys performed as assistant roofing carpenters. That money wasn’t really a lot but it was much to us. As for me, it was a big step ahead.

We mostly live at a credit. We would rather live at a credit than have the least we don’t heavily pay for and then go on to make the most with the least.

Cheaper meals are the least. But they guaranteed a $40 payout instead of $5 per contract. A $40 payout helped to put my imagination into a vision.

Quickly I learned, you can easily buy your misery back if you choose to have the most that your income can’t afford at zero credit. “Credit” in this usage here does not translate to debt. It is our potential we sell away through the illusion of buying some good life.

The things you get free in this life when others are paying properly and waiting for the right time to be able to enjoy them are what you pay for with your life. If not your life it must be your chances of succeeding in this life.

Why things are as in the statement above?

The system in this world is one paying. Anyone of us may be smarter in any sense. To get whatever s/he can get free. But s/he can pay for what s/he doesn’t pay for with his/her chances of seeing greater things in life.

It is cheaper to be the least you can be. Because in being that you can make the most. If you can add things like a vision in building your life, the “least path” can always leave you with the most to put into your vision.

In most cases, we think success is driven by a few things. I believe that patience and all other few items are all you can have. Someone else can say it’s desire. But the true thing is success comes through being a high-performance person in as many components, mentalities, aspects and practices that drives it.

In your journey to success, these thoughts can get you far.

Quick thoughts to get you by in your journey to success.

We are accustomed to thinking that success and greatness are achieved through hard work. That is never wrong when success is defined as how you fare in a competition setup. A hard worker can be anyone among us. But hardworking is scarcely rewarding alone.

That’s why there should be hard thinking, too. Hard thinking, thinking that becomes a personal philosophy with not only escape routes but fighting styles, when combined with moderate working and sleepful nights can bring goodies into our lives. 

Work must cease to be hard work to become a working work. When you can’t conquer, you find means to do that. By default we are all bound to fail. The way to change this is you and not anyone. You are the one to tweak original you into someone who is but to be successful. The inner invincibility beats the outer invincibility. Have it developing in you.

I don’t wish to see success coming during the first try. Success must remain harder to attain so that it can only remain success that is for those who deserve it. For success is proof that you really wanted it and it had to happen. It is also success again to have the best version of happiness in your hands that others don’t.

Success is not hardworking as they say. It may be the depth of the tweaking you do to what’s the default. In this world, we are sometimes taught to remain into what’s default to help build success for others.

Sometimes you need to retire out of the competition and simply beat them. In a big company, to succeed you are expected to have five PhDs, one or two achievements in other companies. Behind you, there must be hints of hard work as expected ahead. Does this all mean without having the brilliance and the chance to earn the PhDs you can not achieve?

Break out of thinking cycles to create a line that shoots up in a straight line that grows up. New forms of doing it can make doing the same thing a big difference. People who can’t qualify to be CEOs are people who own the production line, so they simply declared themselves CEOs out of what they came up with. They faced struggles but they couldn’t be brave enough to keep facing failure forever.

The world always existed before you were there. If you think you are born early. Well! Some thinking is always there earlier for you to only take it as your thinking. The world has been influenced in your absence. Where you find it disagreeing with you. Do fight it. Influence it. Don’t hesitate to influence the world. Because in your absence the worst can influence it and keep turning it into a bad place.

Don’t do a business. Do your business. Don’t plan. Build a vision. Don’t travel. Construct a roadmap. Don’t desire to be successful. Build your own definition of success and live in it. After that erase the definition when it’s limiting.

Any definition is good except when it’s in place to defeat the freedoms of other beings.

There may be things to avoid in life. You are taught about them in life, growing up, at school and at home. It’s fifty-fifty. But most of the time instead of being taught to avoid you are taught to hate.

Hate spreads over. Spills into other related things. With hate, there s no ‘do it your own way’ you just hate. With avoiding you can avoid it your own way. Some successful people in the world of tech including in the addicting gaming industry didn’t have to hate the screen as it is a time waster to be detested. They avoided what they avoided on the screen in their own ways and allowed their success to come through the same screen.

In other words, don’t know what to hate. Know what to avoid.

After all, it’s better to be a victim of falling in love than a victim of hate.  For a victim of hating something not really negative is always a victim.

So, don’t say “I really hate it” as it is invincible to say “I don’t like it very much” — because in the latter there is room to change.

Most people who get their freedom fail to utilise it. If you don’t have the freedom you are just unlucky. That’s why you must create that freedom. You must waste no time fighting for very unnecessary freedoms, just influence things to get it.

Allow ambition to be what you balance on not what you move by.

Vision: You must build a vision not plans

A personal vision

Vision: Build a personal vision not plans

At a personal level, a vision is a purpose that is not weakly defined all to create an individual who goes against all odds in proving his/her existence. People who build a vision in their lives believe that life is tenure and we don’t have to change that. To them, their lives must reach a certain value unimaginable before departure.

What do you want to accomplish in your life, your life being a mission?

A vision sticks inside as a foundation to a mindset and as an outline of a dream or many other dreams. A personal vision is how things are done by that exact person.

You can build a vision through:

  1. Your game changing origin and sticking to it. The falling apple was Newton’s game changing origin. He didn’t eat it. He started to work tirelessly on what would become gravity as we know it today, and back in his time his explanation of reality was hated as sorcery.
  1. Asking questions or the logic “Why am I here?” instead of “I am here now!” What’s lacking discover, don’t see it. A vision sort of proves wrong the existing achievements and thinking. A vision is millions of questions answered.
  1. Giving yourself some clarity in yourself and also helping your mind by recording things happening and lessons or theories you are building. If you can read books written by others why can’t you have yours? Don’t be right always when you reach to yourself after anything or before anything. If you don’t question your habits, defend them, they remain extremely wrong.

Apparently when you are always right everything is wrong.

  1. Being alone in building it. If you can’t be alone be with people who can help you to carve up your vision. Carving it up is one thing, creating is another and it’s for you. Don’t pollute it by influences or resistance. The greater the vision the more likely it is to be incompatible with the existing greatest minds of the time around you. If it means to be alone, be ready to accept it.
  1. Since a vision can be something out of nothing you are required to be good at harnessing the few into attaining big results. A vision is an exaggeration of an actual dream but never dystopian. It is reasoning that difficult isn’t impossible.

How to address a vision and get things right

Dreaming is for the dark times. When the sun shows up it ceases to be dreaming time.  The sunshine during the day may not be pleasant but visionaries keep going. Abstract things are planned in the dark, executed when the slightest hint of light shows up.

What you can do in your wake time is a big difference.

Discipline. The SubjectME’s definition is different. Discipline is doing the right things at the right time or doing the right things the wrongs way.  You will need that type of discipline if your vision is different.

Bring that intensity into the game. Don’t be faint at it until you can’t see the paper you are writing the story of your life on. A vision is what you have to be, not what they expect you to become. Have none involved in tinkering it. You surely can attain it. Once you are done building your vision don’t allow those who are not compatible with it in.

Don’t plan. Build a vision instead

Don’t plan. Build a vision instead you will build a future instead of simply having it. The thing with a vision at a personal level that lacks the kind of planning discussed here is it ignores satisfaction in the now to bring infinity satisfaction in the future.

Through a vision suffering endured in the path to attain pays better than suffering endured in accomplishing a thousand plans. A vision seeks to create any difference out of where impossible. A plan simply is a routine, and it may be doing the same thing the same way over and over. 

Don’t plan. Build a vision. When things are impossible, a vision, if perfectly built, is a machine in creating its own possibilities. A plan looks for what’s possible and goes for it. A plan may be doing the same thing the same way over and over.

What is a vision and how it is different from a plan? A vision is a roadmap. It doesn’t have to allow its maker to get stuck in traffic. A plan is a single highway with no ways or means to reverse and pick up other routes. A vision is a detail of what you would become before you could become it. Building a vision is building that detail. Planning means you have an intention to act. Building a vision means you have an intention to attend, be attend and take charge. A plan stays behind as you move into acting. A vision lives with you and you live in it. A plan is a command behind. You cannot remake it.

Discover don’t see things and build a proper perspective.

Before I dive into discover don’t see and build a proper perspective, allow me to be listened to by you as I say some things in life can never go without the other. A key needs a lock. The true value of what you do is in how you do it. You may do whatever you think to be the very definition of unique but without a unique method in doing it casual results are the result.

How you do it is packed with either clues or casualness. You are only able to be clueful when you are supposed to be clueless when you discover things instead of seeing them. By discovery, you are helping yourself to better help yourself. When discovering the same eye sees, but this time it allows helpful detail about what’s seen to reign and be available, or to exist.

There is a need to look at the same thing over and over only to find the way you see such a thing changing. When such a change happens, it’s not a change in the way you see things happening. It is a change in perspective. Perspective is always there when you see things, but it needs to be proper perspective, some perspective that is out of discovery. Discover don’t see and build a proper perspective.

Allow me to repeat it again: A proper change in the way you see things is the maker of seeing things through not just seeing things. It is seeing things by discovery. Discovery is a deeper eye with detail, detail essential to where it is needed the most, that detail is not ignorant to what you are capable of.

A perspective is shaped by the one giving it the light to see. Perspective shapes the thinking of one who shapes it. Discover don’t see and build a proper perspective.

You fail to change its shape, i.e. turn it into proper perspective, you only fail to create a person and environment you wish for yourself. Success in changing its shape is more than the success you may desire. Allow your eye to discover most than to only see things the most. The power is in your control. It’s either you win it or lose it. The power to command what you want your perspective to be, improper or proper. We mostly choose to lose it and live with what’s improper.

The harshness with only seeing things or what can be made by only seeing things is always there to stay. An improper perspective can take an individual shaping it to use twice, thrice or a million times the same effort to achieve the same thing or to never achieve it. Navigating is not just the knowledge to steer the vessel in the deeper waters. It is a campus that gives direction. Discover don’t see and build a proper perspective.

If it is a strategy a proper perspective is the most deeper understanding of what needs to be done and how it must be done as it is the most logical among the things put into the whole war you need to win. It is more than an eye can see. Hence, proper perspectives are discoveries.

Through a proper perspective, you don’t run away from your capabilities to be rescued by someone’s. You only learn to understand the value of you capabilities, and therefore discover what you are capable of and become a capable being from what you are.

In resolving conflicts proper perspectives are helpful. To lighten the burden. Things don’t need to be a finger-pointing game when there is a better understanding among the parties involved in the conflict.

Can poverty foreclose one’s capability to be financially successful?

Can_poverty_foreclose_your_chances_to_be_successful

Poverty simply as the lack of resources in abundance not the unavailability.

There is poverty, and there is extreme poverty. If one has made it to this site, he is not extremely poor. He has fewer to begin with not zero to begin with but he can make it because there is a starting point. That’s the type of poverty to be covered in this post. To redefine this type of poverty I can say I am here blogging and I have dropped out of college in my final but I am poor. I was lucky enough to attain my ticket to the college to become an eighth boy to reach college from my village, and my parents bankrolled all my education.

‘What I fear most amongst the folks of our own age is not poverty but failure.’ When I heard this I heard it in the voice of the actress, Natalie Emanuel. And I quickly added that I too fear its consequences, consequences of the kind of poverty I grew up in, a dual squeal that keeps on recurring― an ample scepticism and a life without a why. One way or the other each of these two conditions serves as an inciting cause of the other.

But before I can explain whether poverty or the lack of resources ruins the possibility of your financial success. I need to inform you that when resources are your hindrance you must…

  • Be patient, not confident. Only you make yourself a hopeful loser when you fail then keep doing it and that’s better than what a confident loser does when he fails.
  • Start with some little thing, if not different to what’s in your dreams. This is what I call passion A to passion B concept and it’s when Elon Musk started with PayPal, sell it for some billions then moved on to start SpaceX and Tesla. It was even more difficult for him to start with Tesla or SpaceX. And I am here blogging to get something to start my bigger project which can not even dare to move out of what I earned since I was born. Passion A to B concept works.
  • Stick to a format of discipline that is in SubjectMe (my personal diary), i.e. “doing the right things at the right time and doing the wrong things the wrong way”. What’s success, for instance, in the village I grew up in is one’s ability after marriage (marriage is also success) to pay several hundred dollars in school feeses, to eat a loaf of bread (i.e. the best breakfast) every morning and owning five cattle. I wrongly aimed at success (I discovered true discipline) that is company wealth and it is the right thing to do if real poverty, including poverty in my village and my country is to be escaped.
  • Live like an achiever before you are one. Live like a homeless and hopeful Luis Vuitton whose efforts brought a big luxury brand carrying his name.
  • Be creative and have a vision first. A vision is where your creativity fills. Vision is a container. Creativity is like water and it means nothing when there is nothing to contain it. Ambition works, too, it can be a funnel to drive your creativity into your vision.

Can poverty ruin one’s path to success? The branching concept.

As someone who grew up in a poor African village, and had to change and face the world with becoming a major industrialist, the branching concept is my own ‘seeing minds’ way of answering the question above. Once we are past the stem stage, the branch each one of us takes makes a difference decides whether s/he’s going to be successful or not. And here I go…

The seed to much of the things happening though the living is interest. Interest by default is usually ‘food first’. It’s centred among the very basics by default before each human gets into better possessions or before s/he attains better means to acquire or create what’s more than food. This also applies to any young one immediately after birth (and it’s only assistance from others beings that changes the game) but to a group of people who are not yet past this stage or are back to this stage. It’s either you’re ‘helpless and therefore without helpers’ or you are extremely poor to fit in this group.

Related: Success is the depth of success in your definition

If we’re lucky we get into the stem. This is when, you as an individual or collectively as a family or society, your focus as income rises becomes more on enhancing yourself. Educating yourself is one of the things you can do and it becomes the new basics as food once was. But at this moment you don’t have much to enhance yourself with, and the means to enhance yourself when you do are compromised means. That’s when things do go well for others. Helpers come in to have you attain better enhancement (a scholarship provider in this case).

When enhancement is a done process you reach a stage where you’re no longer worried about feeding yourself or educating yourself. The enhancement is said to be done because you can’t keep enhancing yourself not because it is adequate. The homeless Luis Vuitton didn’t get the best education but his enhancement came in many ways including his punishing life that gave him purpose and a lust to prove that he wasn’t lost. When the best or the most compromised enhancement is done a “breaking-free” stage is reached by all of the enhanced who makes it into independent adulthood.

Three breaking-free branches


1. A glittery lifestyle lures you. 

Glittery lifestyle: You wanna look good?

Me: (nodding my head as if I want it to throw it away to where my response is going) Yes!

When we say yes, we can only have to require a lot to support that glittering status and it can either ruin you or erase the possibility of your full impact on society, and your society may still be poor or underresourced. The enhancement process, the education system involved can be there to create a lot of us who picks 1 as a choice. Which is not bad.

You can pick glittery before creating anything else. That’s the beauty of it, because pleasure is enjoyable when even living under a dollar a day. Since I no longer refer to the things that happened before I was born in my family as ‘they’, I would say ‘we used to buy a good collection of suits and the best beer after getting our kids to boarding schools. Our kids would do the same, only to face retirement with zero to enjoy.’

A cycle sort of repeats itself. Fairly good enhancement, in fact far much better than Luis Vuitton’s and not anything close to breaking through.

Choices are the beginning of everything. After choices build a better motive.

2. The middle branch

The glittery branch fails to lure these guys, and nothing big changes. The focus is on sustenance not going up. This branch has the potential to carry some of the happiest individuals on the planet. And it is always the take-off or the nose dive point.

The cycle stated above can again be a thing of the middle.

3. Success and up above

A glittery life fails to lure you. You then pick up from a poor start, the middle and aim higher but it’s not easy. Our Luis Vuitton was enhanced through exposure and he couldn’t have done much in the bag industry without having been in a situation that forced him off the farm and took him to the town where he would become homeless but witness a bigger world where products are produced to sell and sell more than they should. That exposure can be not a place but your imagination.

Unfortunately, it’s formerly taught that a poor start like Luis had or $820 that got Dan Peña one of the most successful Hispanics is not a start for a big business. And generally what needs to start moving first is not the business itself it is the idea. Millions plus the business and no idea, nothing moves.

According to Dan Peña, you need to perform like you wanna achieve (and we have written about and live your success before you get it. But…

It’s bloody hard to be a high performance person.

Dan Peña

“You’re great. Be great!” Motivational words to boost your confidence.

Be great. Don’t wait to be given free. Free yourself from donors. For they are like a whetstone, they can give you the sharpness of the moment that isn’t in your make.

Starve yourself to be able to feed yourself. When you starve and believe that your starving can only end through you, you bring yourself to any rain and thunder and grow yourself through those few things you are and stand up.

Harden yourself through standing firm where others are being given free. Buying is not a shortcut. Shortcuts don’t lead to a destination you’ll love.

Let them be ahead. Let them build their houses. Don’t feel that you’re being left behind. Master building your foundation in the air so that you can be able to fly. Be great.

There are things in life you can only achieve after failing to admire those ahead and the means that got them ahead. They are things in life you can only achieve after admiring yourself and your capabilities. Success is failure to be unsuccessful.

There is always a person who is not up to his/her potential s/he isn’t adding up to the things going on in his/her life. When things are so, be not absent in your life. Stand up and tinker yourself like a smith tasked to supply swordsmen who are about to enter war but with not tools to begin with.

The biggest mountain you can move for yourself is you. You don’t wait for anoyone to move it, you don’t die trying move it, you do it to give to give your life what you intent to achieve. Be motivated by not having and having to have it through mostly yourself because you can be motivated to have more; and believe that more is not the ticket behind more; that it’s you behind more.

Help yourself. The rock is slippery. If you stretch another hand looking for one up above snatch it and help you up, you’re subtracting all you have to get the grip on that rock. It’s painful to be hopeless without the help from the one above you.

Help yourself. Don’t wait to be given free. Yourself is great. Make yourself great. Harden yourself and face the battle with sharpness that can last.

You are great. Be great.

Success is the depth of success in your definition

Success is the depth of success in your definition. A river is any river of any depth. The depth of a river is defined by mother nature. Sometimes you don’t need to stay a river of a shallow depth because you can pour your muscle into theirs free, and build them into rivers of greater strength and depth.

Your depth must not be limited by anything. You’re in charge. Wake up every morning to cook your future but don’t do this out of the most shallow vision if you want to grow deep.

Any definition of a discourse is a starting point to the discourse itself. Success is practice. You cannot come up right after defining it well the then forget to work for it.

What makes a person successful is discipline, and not discipline alone, hardworking, and not hardworking alone, persistence, and not it alone, knowledge and experience applied and not these alone—capital and one’s capability to harness is, but not it alone. It takes a wonderful gymnasium at home to build your body but not it alone. Success is a packed dish, if more ingredients are to be packed in it, its success is in the time and attention given to each by the chef.

You cook for yourself.

Success is like a facade. Bricks or wood rarely go alone from foundation to the roof. Success is a facade, the kind of you have no authority to hire contractors to work on it on your behalf if it is yours you’re building. So you’re the one to learn how to lay a foundation and lay it, how to stick bricks together with cement of work, and how to mix the right mixture of cement in your brains, and who to hang out with to inspect your work as an advisor and helper. When you get to the roof clear, you cover facade well knowing that your persistence and patience made you great, that each day that ever came to life in your sight was like a patient visiting your private surgery in need of intensive attention and with a suitcase loaded with cash just for you when you get the surgery right.

After all, real success, when it comes, should never get you into regretting why coming your way, or why coming your way that was. Not ever.

Achievements and success. What makes up the lives of achievers?

Achievers seek and share Ideas

Ask any achiever… What makes up life full of achievements are ideas possessed and not wasted. But because idea is a big word (even in music melodic subject of a musical composition is an idea) the importance of ideas as a basic makeup of achievements is hard to decipher. Not only to understand but to consider it as so (a basic ingredient in success).

Achievers create, copy, adopt, share and make ideas they possess better and better.

We may live for something. We only live through ideas and what we produce.

They are unique and ‘self-isolated’

They always wake up with a purpose. They then work on their path up thinking of and planning a different purpose apart from the one in their current work to get them further and to wake up in the morrow. Because they are always up with a different purpose. Some achieving people seem to be out of the community or the family they are living with. Some people watching may sense egotism or pridefulness out of these, while it’s not. It’s a line they help to draw that separates them from what’s average, and a line the average side puts half of the ink it stands in.

A change in values push them to the side where few folks are included. That change doens’t come free with the inclination to act toward attaining goals behind anything envisioned.

Always time consciousness

When each generation is alive the choices individuals in it make are bad or good. The winning choices from the bad side or the good make up what the offspring can face. Anything like such happens under the right scope of time. Good things happen through those who are aware of time, that there is no minute to waste and no second for a haste.

Achievers are not only concerned about increasing the time you spent on something but increasing effort and concentration also. Because it may happen out of time, but everything happens through time. Difference is done and made both on time and in time.

Time is always under the owners’ control. It’s a resource, a nonrenewable one, that always exists as a special separate idle entity or asset in life, if untouched. To make it ‘time’ or to utilise it perfectly, an activity has to be assigned to it and done accordingly, and that assigning will be investing time, not spending time. That activity should be a goal.

Eager to share what they have produced

Because they have sought ideas from somewhere on their rise they try to impart some ideas and experiences that made them achievers. ‘A decline’ happening in later years of one’s life, experts have argued, must be populated with leaving your mark where it is needed.

What makes a great rise is likely to be a focus on what you need to and must live through instead of what you live for. Be open as a charity before you rise, you cannot get to. But after achievements or withing your achieving you need to give your life a purpose to leave a mark.

Do you imagine that the only poets in the world are those who print their verses?

Gobseck by Honoré de Balzac

Gobseck is Gobesck, poets who are remebered after departure for good generously print their work.

They possess self-discipline.

What’s discipline? It is doing the right things at the right time or doing the right things the wrong way. Discipline makes you do things anyway in time. Lack of resources can pull anyone down but never as to the determined. The ‘Tony Robbins understanding’ has it that “the defining factor (for success) is never resources it’s resourcefulness”.

It forges a way where there is not. It is an understanding of the situation and is, in practice, actions following the understanding. The rarest understanding gets achievers to do what they do in a way unimagined by others and therefore wrong but not negative. Discipline is the greatest voice on the inside taken out to speak deeds.

Discipline is an essential makeup of one’s future and it is the central factor, a bridge to success. It works with all of the prerequisites to success, money, education, perfect partners, etc., but where it is alone it stand out, it makes a good choice ever to be executed by a generation, that future kids will have a chance to commend on it, citing that their fathers and mothers were not financially sound when they build their sound footings but they did what was right.

What’s important is perfection in everything

Achievers try to perfect everything even those little things they consider to be the smallest things that matter among the list of their priorities. This is a very hard and achievable thing. The scale one puts at attempting to perfect everything surely translate into the scale of his success. Perfection is an extra number achieved added to where the speedometer ends. It is not speed itself. It is the best among the positives one can do when there is a need.

It has been said (and it’s a good thing not to credit the words to anyone since the quote is disputed if not Chinese) when something is worth doing, it’s worth doing well. For an amateur boxer told me that him missing a single training session as a boxer subtracts from his winning possibility. Attending it adds up a winning chance.

They lose but they never give up.

Everyone is a loser of some sort. But there is a clear distinction between giving up losers and hopeful losers. A hopeful loser has been in haze and he can be in the haze right now, but he sees light coming through slashing the oblivion away. Nothing will stop him. Losing makes up her winning tactics. Scepticism is not a component of the blood running in her system. Whenever she fails, she always tries over.

Sometimes we lose. That’s part of the game. Losing should make us realise that we are still playing. Trying over and over depicts effort. And to achieve is to gain by effort. Lose! Don’t give up.

No excuses. Hope and patience. They don’t resist themselves. They take difficult as easy, not impossible.

Emilie Cady once said “Men stumble over pebbles, never over mountains.” Everything easy is never easy before the one holding on deems them easy. Most hopeful losers (achievers) takes what’s hard in the sight of the giving up losers as an easy tussle. That is why they always emerge as extraordinary winners. The trick is they added hope were others substituted it with confidence.

Concisely, confidence is dangerous alone because it doesn’t see the future as hope and patience do. So you can do this, give up, go on to do this and give up again while you are entirely confident because confidence is blind and ‘confidence’ confidence is never anything to be emotionally attached to what you do. Patience and hope are the best guys to stand where your confidence is because they are a format of confidence that must be understood ‘confidence’ patience/hope. Achievers know all that.

On the other hand, everyone, we all feel the zeal to act on something greater and achieve accordingly but what hampers our movements is that self-resistance. Both hard workers and lazy workers have buildup their routines in the same way— choices (first) ͢ (later) habits. Both, achievers and failing losers, are habitual to their modus operandi.

The habits of keeping old assets for the sake of it is never good: Impact

addiction

Impact19:00hrs-20:00~ One of our neighbours and a frequent visitor visited by. He explained to me that he intended to sell his tractor, an old one and very outdated that its engine if it can be fixed to run asks for a juice that is a mixture of paraffin and diesel. The challenge now was his wife was resisting, arguing that it be left to their offsprings, the youngest, born after the tractor had long existed, being twenty-six. The buyer was one, and a passerby who was collecting those relics for a museum.

My visitor unloaded all his story expecting me to start gushing out the words of advice suiting his situation but I stayed flat. As a person who can say a lot of such words of advice it didn’t become a surprise to hear him asking why I was silent.

‘You are here asking me what I have to say about our own culture of doing things. We keep them. You’re approaching your retirement age now, and you still find yourself in a quarrel with your wife over a thing you acquired  around your thirtieth birthday, and it’s not even a building that can stand for such time its a vehicle.’ My last pot was on the stove as I was preparing my dinner, I couldn’t waste chances have him believe that a man as young as his last born was with the right words. I went on to give him an example of the very first mango tree planted in the village, it was one, and the grandsons and daughters are proud of having it.

‘Now, someone, seven years ago planted some orange trees and they are selling just right to the green one and I wonder if some are to buy flowers as some form of booking the fruit, but he planted them with a belief that they are trees for the grandsons and daughters. The end result was a small orchard, and while his salary was USD500 when he planted them now its USD100. He can only regret that he couldn’t make the orchard a big one then but he can never have it big now because his salary no longer allow him to do so.

‘That tradition of keeping things for the sake of it, and another of doing the very little that’s only for the memories to stay within the family when more should be done is poverty in itself.

‘If your wife is wrong, you must be as well. You yourself kept the old relic in the garage for fifteen years without a piston firing, and then you think now you must let it go. Why this late? I am asking because the world doesn’t pause to have you deciding and do what you must do.

As our discussion went on, reaching its peak and then dying with his departure, I had learned four more things:

  • It is not about having things that can stay it is about having things that mean value and more value. If you have chance to do big at the start, don’t hesitate, do big at the start. Your pension can be an eighth wonder.
  • Holding on to the old things affects negatively the way we act on what we intent to come up with. The bigger and the better things we come up with are a result of the bigger and the better motives we can have before starting. Motives that used to drive our things in the past are relics to throw away.
  • Holding on needs one to be doing it to the things with a heart , things that can love back not to assets.
  • Much of our success depends on how much trash we turn into gold. If once gold turns into trash its either we turn it into gold or discard it. We must do both fast.
  • Some can last but most assets are a perfume can, once empty, its empty. You can not refill it. Discard or feel the pain of trying to refill. Successful bakeries delivering their own bread in this country can not feel the pain in having a vehicle of their own resign after three and a half year at work or even less.

Bringing the starting line to where you are

Of all the things that determine an outcome, that should make us super afraid when any outcomes of our undertakings are about to be spelled out time is big decider. We don’t quite have our hands over it, all this resulting in an approach which says the sooner the better so than we can have something better tangible sooner

Bringing the starting line to where you are

informativus_logo

Of all the things that determine an outcome, that should make us super afraid when any outcomes of our undertakings are about to be spelt out, time is a big decider. We don’t quite have our hands over it. Our purpose is usually to do good things the soonest we can. When conditions say “no!”, bringing the starting line closer and start anyway is tremendous respect for time.

The courage to draw the starting line where one is standing just now and without waiting for then, without waiting for all the requirements to be there first, works. The line itself can only look upon one drawing it and see that courage but zero or few of its requirements that it can take as right for a start. When that happens that courage should bear its fruits in one attempting to takeoff.

It takes starting low and having that low produce some. Some that are then harnessed to mean some more, then bounty. This ‘offspring approach’ requires concentration on each of the inputs s/he is employing, because if the employing fails then there is a challenge in finding the replacing input. Deciding is for once, redeciding is for the start not the middle of each phase. Wiser choices are those done through a spectacle that looks deep into the future, not the day after tomorrow. Good choices are done knowing that tomorrow is not for nothing and that tomorrow can add value to the future.

Good choices are not wasteful about time. They are progress.

People are afraid to run without the shoes, the shoes wonder if best runners are people who first put them shoes on before learning to run only to get their talents out of them shoes. The fear of not having when you must have, is the fear of getting to have when you are not having. You can’t have the best you yourself when you are afraid that you don’t have that requirement which is an essential for a good start to get you where will definitely get to have.

23May2021Sun A friend passed by while I was working in the garden. A conversation we had with each other was good. We were discussing about job opportunities, and I had some tough time to convince him to avoid waiting for a job which is never readily available in our Southern African country, Zimbabwe. Above were my words to him after convincing him to do some form of production then sell the produce.

Through a microphone on my $2 set of earphones I recorded my words after pausing the FM radio. This is for you.

Because nothing can break our addiction to it, and to other modern gadgets like it as well, let’s help each other here to give that phone a tool position in our lives. We can’t keep it robbing our precious time.
