🌼🌼There is still hope🌼🌼

Sometimes my heart smile for the simplest things that most people take for granted. In a time like this when it seems like the world is filled with hate and rage, simple things like a thank you, gives me great joy.

From a very young age most of us were thought to be kind and polite to each other. As kids it came natural to us but, as we grew older our lines got crossed and that vital virtue of kindness somehow got lost or forgotten.

I recently came across this story about a total stranger being kind that I want to share it with you:

Seven Miles For Me

Leaving a store, I returned to my car only to find that I locked my keys and cell phone inside. A teenager riding his bike saw me kick a tire and say a few choice words. “What’s wrong?” he asked. I explained my situation. “But even if I could call my wife,” I said, “she can’t bring me her car key, since this is our only car.” He handed me his cell phone. “Call your wife and tell her I’m coming to get her key.” “That’s seven miles round trip.” “Don’t worry about it.” An hour later, he returned with the key. I offered him some money, but he refused. “Let’s just say I needed the exercise,” he said. Then, like a cowboy in the movies, he rode off into the sunset. –  Clarence W. Stephens Nicholasville, Kentucky. 

It’s very sad to say that not too many acts of kindness are being offered today. After I read this story from Clarence W. Stephens it made me think about my own experience, but no one came to my rescue. Sometime last year my car just decided to go dead on me at the stoplight in the middle of the road. I was on my way home from work around 7:30 in the evening but it was in the height of winter and it was freezing cold. I did everything I ucould to start the car but nothing happened. Because I couldn’t get not even the blinkers to work I got out and stood by the side of the road in the freezing cold. I stood there and waited, that’s after calling the police who later came with a tow truck. While I was standing on the side of that busy road it was amazing to me, that not one person stoped to ask are you ok or nothing. What happened instead was that they looked very annoyed that my car was just sitting there in their way slowing them down. The act of kindness is not totally lost but it is definitely not high.

Whenever I experience any act of kindness, I’m always so grateful, even if it’s as simple as someone holding a door for me, it still warms my heart. It shows me that there is still hope.

🌼🌼🌼Stay Hungry 🌼🌼🌼

Have you ever felt hungry before? Most of us answers should be yes, being hungry sometimes puts us in a state of mind where all we can think of, is finding food. I’m not talking about being “a little hungry ” I’m talking about ” I haven’t eaten all day hungry ” where you can feel your intestines churning and they start to speak to you loudly even when you don’t want to hear it. I’m talking about hunger that have you yearning for food.

I have felt that kind of hunger before and that’s the kind of hunger you need to have in order to reach for your goals. It can be a small goal or it may be big. Whatever it is that you are trying to achieve you need to stay hungry. Let’s face the facts here, life is difficult ( that’s my honest opinion, you don’t have to agree with me) and sometimes it takes more than a little effort to keep our heads above the water. Often times we may just want to kick a bad habit, change a negative behavior or it can even be, to drop a negative person who doesn’t fit in with the direction that you are trying to take yourself. You want to make a change, so then you have to be willing to do whatever it takes to accomplish that goal. So yes, it hurts to drop that negative friend and it sucks to stop eating junk at night; but, how hungry are you? How bad do you want it? Stay hungry.

Hey, sometimes we make an effort and we take that step forward, sometimes even ten steps forward only to take twenty steps back .How hungry are you? Start over, It’s ok to make mistakes ( nobody is perfect) and it’s ok if you have to start over just Stay hungry.

As long as you keep yearning for whatever it is that you want to achieve. Keep that unrelenting passion, keep chipping away little by little and keep the hunger alive you will surprise yourself, you are much much stronger that you think Stay hungry.

🌼🌼🌼Don’t give up🌼🌼🌼

That’s a phrase that rolls right of the tongue so easily. “Don’t give up” if you ask me it’s easier said than done. Life has a way of throwing you curve balls that knock you right off your tracks sometimes. One of the easiest way out, maybe to say ” I give up” We all like it when things are easy, but, it’s not always that way.

“It’s not an easy road” words from the great Buju Banton. Your journey is not going to be easy, not everything is going go as planned. It doesn’t matter how well you prepare, there are always going to be setbacks and missed steps, the reality is that, things are going to happen.

There is one thing above all, that any successful person has, and that’s belief. You can prepare and pray all you want, but that won’t get you anywhere. You have to truly believe in yourself and you ability to do it. Believe in yourself when others don’t, believe in yourself even when everything is going wrong, believe in yourself even when it looks impossible. You have to have that relentless belief in yourself that you will be victorious no matter what.

“Don’t give up” just keep pushing, keep trying and tell yourself every single day that you will be victorious. You will achieve whatever it is that you are fighting for. Now it really doesn’t matter how many times you have fallen or how many times you felt like you have lost. Get up and keep going. Fight if you must, claw if you have no strength, but just keep going no matter what “Don’t give up.”

Don’t accept insecurities

In a time like this when social media is at the center of everything we do. It not only makes us seem narcissistic, but, it also gives us a higher value of self. Post a picture and get thousands of likes and views, that can have you feeling like you’re the best thing since slice bread. Yes we love the likes and the praise, but what about the negative comments how should we deal with the negative comments?

How do we deal with the negative comments not just on social media? But in general. Sometimes the negativity are other people’s way of expressing their insecurities. Quite often, people have the tendency to project their feelings unto others. If you are lucky, you may receive some positive energy from their projections, but if not, it’s fear, insecurity, anger, resentment and a whole host of negativity that will be projected unto you.

A lot of times people say that what others say or think about them doesn’t matter. It really shouldn’t matter but, the reality is that, what people have to say about you matters. This is true unless you have really created a mindset that rejects outside opinions. This is possible only with a very strong self confidence and a strong belief in yourself and knowing who you are. ” word is wind” I used to hear that a lot when I was growing up. It was later on in life that I realized that words can be very heavy and that it has the power to weigh you down. Sometimes no matter how strong of a person you are, there are some words that will play on your insecurities. Yes, everyone has insecurities, sometimes small and sometimes big. One of the things that I have realized, is that people can only relate to you based on what they know and how they feel about a situation. So if you share something that you want to do with someone and they have insecurities about that situation; then it is only natural, that they are going to project their feelings unto to you. It is up to you to know that someone else’s feelings or thoughts are not yours. Do not allow yourself to accept anybody’s insecurities as your own reason for failure.

live for you, don’t be held back by the insecurities of others . Make your own mistakes and learn from them.

Changing your mindset

I can’t believe how fast the year is going, last time I spoke about kindness. Today let’s look at how to change our mindset to being positive and optimistic. Your mindset is what creates your perception, if control the way you think, then your actions will somehow manifest what’s in the mind. If you constantly have negative thoughts and a mind of doubt, then believe it or not that’s what you are going to reap. Set your mind to be nothing but positive, tell yourself self that being positive is the only option you have. Do not create a space for doubt or failure in your mind, then the only option you have is to win, to succeed and to be great.

Here are a few quotes that speaks about changing your mindset:

To create something exceptional, your mindset must be relentlessly focused on the smallest detail.

Georgio Armani

Common sense would suggest that having ability, like being smart, inspires confidence. It does but only while the going is easy. The deciding factor in life is how you handle setbacks and challenges. People with a growth mindset welcome setbacks with open arms.

Travis Bradberry

No Matter what, people grow. If you choose not to grow, you’re staying in a small box with a small mindset. People who win go outside that box. It’s very simple when you look at it.

Kevin Hart

The mind is just like a muscle, the more you exercise it, the stronger it gets and the more it can expand.

Idowu Koyenikan

It is hard to fail, but it is worst never to have tried to succeed.

Theodore Roosevelt

Anything is possible if you have the mindset and the will and the desire to put the time in.

Roger Clemens

Eliminate the mindset of can’t, because you can do anything.

Tony Horton

Your positive mindset, gives you a more hopeful outlook, when you believe that you can do something great, it means that you will do something great.

Russell Wilson

If you don’t give anything, don’t expect anything. Success is not coming to you. You must come to it.

Marva Collins

Twenty years from now, you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do, than by the things that you did do. So sail away from the safe harbor explore, dream, discover.

Mark Twain
