I’m the last person to say that life is easy, I don’t think that’s the case at all. But there’s one thing I’ve learned in recent years that changed everything.
The way you THINK determines the out come of your life, BUT thinking is hard that’s why we don’t do it often enough. “People don’t like to think, if one thinks, one must reach conclusion, conclusion are not always pleasant” said Hon. Robert Kyagulanyi commonly known as Bobi wine.
I’ll share with you some few thoughts about life that will transform the way you live.
1. THINK BIG, ACT SMALL.
You want to change people’s lives or make a contribution to the world? Never let anything hold your back when you think of ideas like; It’s too difficult or other people are already doing it. You might as well aim high, you’ve got nothing to lose. Just make sure you act small, put in the work and stay practical.
2.PROBLEMS ARE UNANSWERED QUESTIONS.
I don’t get it why people freak out when they encounter a problem, this is the worst thing ever. Every time you experience stress over a problem, you’re basically sabotaging your life. It’s completely unnecessary to ever freak out. Always remember that a problem is nothing BUT unanswered question. So stay calm and figure out the answer.
3. BUILD RELATIONSHIPS ON A FIRM FOUNDATION.
Did you know that there are some wrong reasons to be in a relationship? There is a reason of money, fear of being alone and needing attention. If your relationship sucks and you’ve tried to improve it multiple times then it’s time to move on. Love has no opposite, when you love someone you can’t hate them at the same time. The foundation of all relationships should be based on love, respect, support, trust, patience, good company and more support.
4. NOTHING IN LIFE IS FREE.
No matter how you spin it, you always pay for something with money, time and always remember that this is the most valuable thing you have (time). Life is business and smart business people spend their resources wisely. They are always calculated and they never waste any resource (most especially time).
5. NEVER BE AFRAID OF MAKING DECISIONS.
You might think that making no decision at all can do no harm, but you are wrong. The worst thing about decision making is when you don’t pull the trigger. Get your act together and decide firmly whenever you have to make one. And when you make the wrong decision, apologize and make another one.
There is only one thing that helps you to go from nothing to something; WORK. I don’t care how smart you work, you still have to put in the work.
” We either make ourselves miserable or we make ourselves strong, the amount of work is the same.” Barrack Obama.
7. DECIDE TO BECOME A LEADER TODAY.
Some times you are a leader, some times you are a follower. “If you want to become a leader, first learn how to follow” as said by H E Paul Kagame, the president of the republic of Rwanda. You can be a leader at work, and a follower at home. There’s nothing wrong with that, and being a leader also has nothing to do with your title. It is wrong when everyone looks at each other because no one wants to take responsibility, decide that you will take responsibility and yes you are a leader now.
8. VALUE YOUR FRIENDS.
We are social animals, when we are alone, we die early. You might think that you don’t need friends but you do. Especially when you grow older and have more responsibilities. Things change, people also change BUT the connection stays.
