Life as it comes

Life comes at you fast, one time you’re enjoying the next you’re down. Many things happen within a short period of time, and you tell yourself life isn’t fair. Life has never been fair, has it? We have the rich we have the poor, we have those basking in good health and some born with sickness, you have those wasting foods and delicacy, and you have some begging just for a day meal.

Then you ask yourself, am I just unfortunate? Unlucky? Hapless?. Hell, No! Sometimes it’s just down to how you began your journey of life. Nobody is ever comfortable suffering or in poverty.

You were born with potentials; you were born to fulfill a purpose in life. God has a plan for you and everyone. You weren’t born a loser; most times, your dedication, hard work, perseverance, determination, and how you build your connections are what you need to fulfill this purpose.

There are steps to fulfill this purpose and free yourself from obstacles of life;

Plan your life!

When you fail to plan, you plan to fail. There’s no success without planning; planning is key to everything in life. You can achieve anything you want in life as long as you plan; a planned life is an organized life, a planned life doesn’t lack. Set a deadline now and plan to get there.

Set yourself a target/goals

Target is a goal intended to be attained and which is believed to be attainable. Don’t just set a goal; believe, trust, and be confident you will achieve your target. Be a goal-getter; nobody said it was going to be easy, there would be obstacles, there would be hindrances, but how you overcome all this will help you achieve your target.

Have a positive mentality/mindset

Positive mentality means focusing on the good in any given circumstances(bad or good).

How do you have a positive mindset?

  • Focus on the good things. Challenging situations and obstacles are a part of life.
  • Spend time with positive people.
  • Practice positive self-talk.
  • Identify your areas of negativity.
  • Start every day on a positive note.

Build your connections, keep your circle small.

Build your connections, Keep your circle small, do not befriend everyone you meet. People are fickle, and many do not have good intentions. Have friends who can help, friends with connections who are ready to help you with your vision and goals, not just friends who aren’t of help to you. These are some of the mistakes we make, and we keep old-time friends who aren’t of benefit to us and expect progress in life. Lastly, do not get too comfortable and share your private life with everyone.
