Shut out the Negatives
If you want to make it in life there are some lessons that you need to learn and things you need to avoid. One of the most important things is having confidence in yourself, and the courage to pursue your dreams, even if you have naysayers. If you spend time worrying about people not believing in you, chances are you won’t make it. If you find yourself obsessing with thoughts that people don’t like you, you won’t make it. Your time should be spent productively. By spending valuable time focusing on negativity, you are setting yourself up for failure. Focus your energy on what matters and you will find yourself a step closer to achieving success.
Engage in Positive Thinking
You become what you think, so if you engage in only negative thinking, you will draw negative energy and attract negative things in your life. Nothing is beyond the reach of the man determined to rise above the odds stacked against him. The people who believes they can attain great height are more likely to see their dreams become a reality. Likewise if you daily bemoan the fact that you are poor, unlucky, and has no hope of of things getting better. You will remain where you are wallowing in self-pity. No matter how beaten down you feel, tell yourself it will get better. Know that where you are is not your final destination. There is a wise quote, which says, “Be careful what you set your heart upon because it will surely be yours.” Set your heart on the things that will elevate you. Dream big and aim high.
Acknowledge the good things you have in your life, your family, friends, your job, a roof over your head and having food on your table. Be grateful for all these things. Everyday across the world there are many without. Reinforce that gratitude in the things you do and say and in the way you treat others. Never forget the highest appreciation for what you have is to show gratitude.
Hold on Strong
One doesn’t know how much time is left
as the sands of life trickle through;
So, pack with care your case of life
And preserve the good and the true.
Place your laughter near the top
And bury sorrow down deep.
Put your worries and cares to one side
and good memories forever keep.
Place the wisdom and love above all,
Over everything else in the case.
They are the trophies won in the end
Over life’s battles you’ve faced.
Now gently close the lid with care
And wait for your Creator’s call.
Hold strong and steadfast to your case of life
and pray that you never falter or fall.
This poem is so meaningful, at a time when people across the world are still battling COVID. Like me many of you perhaps thought it would have been over by now. But the fight goes on. Stay safe my friends and hold on strong.
