The truth we must accept!

Not every reality is easy to accept! Especially when it doesn’t fall in alignment with what you expected.

There are some truths about yourself that you sometimes pray it weren’t the case. And sometimes accepting this truth hurts so bad. But doing so will only give you an opportunity to recreate a better version of yourself!

When I woke up this morning, I received a call from a very good friend. And he was outlining some areas in my life which I failed in…!!!

I really never wanted to fail in that area….but I realized I failed. And so I have been asking myself “What can I do to make this right this 2019?”

You know…it’s lot easier for us to accept what we so much crave to hear, than the things we don’t! Unfortunately, there is no way we can move forward if we do not redress the “little foxes” (failures) that pull us back…

To have thought that I tussled throughout 2018 without realizing this mistake make we wonder even more!

Sometimes, we won’t be able to see the problem. But those around us will. We need to be open minded, humble and willing to admit and take full responsibility of our mistakes and failures in life, and be ready to face it’s consequences heads on!

And so I decided to set a measurable goal to set things right again! I gave myself as dateline December 31st. And so I’m looking forward to man up and get this task done!

So I grabbed a few lessons today on what to do when the bitter truth comes knocking:

  1. Accept it: Yes…..do accept it….it’s so hard to do so…. You get that feeling of total disappointment in yourself. But you have to accept it!
  2. Do not justify: There is always a tendency to give reasons why you failed. The problem is you failed. And it’s no crime….its part of the growing process! We are not machines programmed to be 100% efficient. We are humans and we err. And so never be ashamed to admit your failure!
  3. Do not walk on the self pity lane: As funny as it seems….this is the worst of consider! You start feeling you are rejected and no one understands what happened and what made you fail. No one’s responsible for your failure but you. Shake off this misguided attitude of self grief and pity that might stop you from taking positive actions
  4. How can I fix this?: After all has been done, if this question is not asked and goals set, then there’s a problem. This is the point where you decide to wipe off failure by taking up positive actions and adopting behavioural changes to realize set goals!
  5. Take up action

Learn to Earn๐Ÿ’ต๐Ÿ’ด๐Ÿ’ถ๐Ÿ’ท

We all strife towards achieving our dreams. And most often at times, because we are so consumed by this passion to achieve, we want it NOW. If there could be a way to earn without working, I think we all would choose that path…..the easier way…. We spend countless hours of the day Working…..trying as much as we can go our best, so we get paid hopefully, daily, weekly, or monthly….

Well….I’m not much of a financial master…but there’s something I have grown to learn with Earning…

A man’s worth is not measured by how much money he is in ppssession of…but how well he is financially educated. Now, I’m npt talking about reading some accounting, management. Or marketing notes…. Im not talking the “school system of financial education ” I’m talking about learning the Art of money. 

It sounds weird but money speaks. It has a language. It has principles …. There’s no at you can earn when you haent learnt that language…..

 And what is that?

Investment: Investment comes in two phases…self investment and financial investment

As easy as self investment may sound….it isn’t. Investing in one self entails alot of discipline. And at extremes, a complete change of mindset may apply. “The way we think, so we are”. When you bring yourself to the point to think rich. 

A lot of us anticipate to be rich in 5 years or so. But, we have. single income pool, and yet several expenditure outlets….. Your money drains… Its the simple rule of sowing and harvesting.

The sowing season( investment) is always tideous, stressful, demanding, and difficult. Alot is required; time, money, effort, energy, idea…. Most people at this phase will give up when they realise the seed hasn’t sprouted. Dont give up!   The harvest season( Earnings \profits) will only apply, when sowing has been made. There’s no way it could be done the other way round. ……….Minimize your liabilities (expenditures) but increase your assets (investments)

Above all…keep the right company…. Surround yourself with great men and you will be great.
