- Review your Performance.
Whether you are a teacher, an engineer, a doctor, a programmer, a CEO, a director, or in any profession, or doing any activity, always try to review your work. If you are a boyfriend or a dad. Take time to think sometimes like how have you been communicating, have you been more affectionate or harsh, have you spent more time in the office or with your spouse, what can you do to improve. Sometimes if nothing works, a prayer will help. ” God help me to be a better daddy or boyfriend or more affectionate, or more hard working”. My teacher once said don’t fix the roof when its not raining. Why fix when its not raining? Funny right.. So review your performance in order to achieve the best.
2. Do more than you can be paid for.
Always do more than what you can be paid for. Its a way to make an investment for the future.
3. Exercise your will power.
A story is told of two friends, Paulzine and Gideon. They got scholarship to study in a foreign country. They were given a car and everything to drive to the destination University. While on the way, they ran out of gas. They knew no one and had nothing in their pockets. So they decided to rest in the car. Whooosh they lay there under a tree just looking into the sky wondering how they would get some money. Gideon could not, he kept thinking for some almost an hour then he said to Paulzine, wake up, we are going to sleep in a good bed, get food and money to get to the university.
So they started walking along the road heading to some light a few kilometres in a mountain. It was not long before they were in the house. As they were walking, a van came along and stopped. ” Heey we are looking for two boys, Have you seen any stalled car around?
When you think with full and strong concentration about something that you want to happen, and your mind does not resist the subject of your thought, your thought materializes. When your mind is empty from thoughts, and only one single thought is allowed to enter, it gains a very great power. One should be very careful with what he thinks. Concentrated thought gains more power. So if you want to succeed today, have a concentrated plan on how to do something. Use this power of the mind to achieve. There is big and great power in the will.
4. Accept your mistakes.
There are a number of good English words like am sorry. My sis used to say this word does not cost anything and for sure it doest but it pays a lot. It can lead to a new relationship, a new start, a show of intelligence. Easy and simple. Moreover, learn to admit your mistakes to yourself. If you fail, in something, sit down and talk to yourself. Like you are working but you cant pay rent, you cant support your family, you are not happy, you are not enjoying what you are doing, you have been working 10 years and still havent saved any penny. Don’t lie about your situation. Accept it and change.
5. Learn to always refine your goals.
When you achieve something you thought you could not, set higher goals. I used to aim to hit 250 keystrokes per minute but when I hit 248, I made a higher goal. You can multiply by double or triple or multiply by ten your dream when you achieve one. Go for higher.
