You’re probably not aware.
But it’s important to break the news to you:
You're on a flight.
And there are only two destinations: success and failure. You will either land in one. There are no in-between.
I have never seen a pilot who wakes up one morning and kissed his wife and kids, goes to his helicopter, launches into space with a decision to crash against Mount Everest.
Similarly, you're on a flight with a purpose to land at success.
But you cannot always tell.
People, even with good intentions, fail. They didn't realize early they were heading to failure.
Most problems in our relationships and marriages today started during the search for a romantic relationship, the choice of partner, and our decisions based on the dynamics of the relationship during the period of dating.
For instance, my parents, even after living together for many years, disagree on several important issues and aspects of life.
Initially, it puzzled me. Like "… why should they still have contrary opinions on these issues after many years of living together?"
Later, it didn't surprise me that much.
I found out that, in their days, there was no such thing as dating before marriage.
I have been heartbroken with some marriages that I see around these days that if this is the little way I can decrease the number by one, I will be more than fulfilled with the effort and time into writing this article.
Nothing breaks my heart more than seeing a woman struggle in marriage. It pains me to my bones. The struggle is as difficult as pulling an elephant up a mountain.
The last time, it was my friend who got married to a pastor.
For almost years, the husband hasn't had sex with her. When she tries to complain…
Someone unknowingly used them on me. It is barely a year since we met. Now she’s the closest friend I have. It’s your turn to use them on someone.
Let's start with why being unforgettable is important to your personal life and future success.
The opportunities that have come into your life are from the people and relationships in your life. The ones that will come in the future will be from the people and relationships in your life. Not just that, they will come from the persons who remember you for good.
Last week, a friend called my phone…
Success takes time.
It takes years to succeed, even when you’re on the right path to achieve success. What I mean is that durable and sustainable success in any field takes time to arrive at, even if you have an above-average level of interest in the job or side hustle (commonly referred to as passion)
In the words of Richard Branson:
"There are no quick wins in business - it takes years to become an overnight success."
A few months ago, I introduced a friend to writing as a side hustle. A few weeks later she quit. …
Regrets from failed relationships are one of the most difficult life issues to deal with. Those regrets can go as far as affecting our next relationship. They may even make us stay away from getting into a relationship altogether. Which is not good in the long run.
But every day, young people get into these situations without even realizing what they are getting themselves into.
What follows is regrets. Sometimes bitterness and depression. It could be worse for very emotional people. …
You may not be aware of this, but it will help you if you do: There is a gap between you and your ideal life. Between where you are now and the person you wish to be in the future. Your daily decisions, habits, attitudes to life and perspectives shrink or expand this gap.
The right decisions, habits, attitudes, and perspectives shrink this gap. They bring you closer to your ideal life. And so it takes a little effort on your path to reach success. That is why students who consistently read, review, and update their notes read less the…
Personal growth is the ultimate aim in life.
Personal growth enriches life. Without it, life is bland, purposeless, and uninspiring. But with personal growth, we reach the most positive mental, social and psychological states we all crave as humans. The most universal is happiness.
In my own life, I feel more enthusiastic and positive about life when reaching towards and realizing my goals. Joy fills my heart each time I tick off an item on my goal list. A wise man rightly said, "happiness doesn’t come from achieving a goal. Instead, it comes from the act of making progress towards…
Getting a child to read is one of the greatest legacies a parent can pass to their children. Reading positions children for great success in life.
Reading fertilizes a child’s imagination, builds his vocabulary, and cognition. According to an article by raising children.net, reading and sharing stories can:
We all start a serious relationship with good intentions. We start with high hope that the relationship succeeds and the partners end up in marriage.
There is nothing more rewarding than seeing your efforts pay off almost in any aspect of your life. You will feel proud of yourself and have confidence in your abilities.
This is life: Things don't always go as planned or as we expect them to.
Sometimes even from the onset, you can't be sure that a relationship is going to work out. First, you don't have the power to foretell the future. …
