Sleep But Not Too Much

January 31, 2011 Leave a comment

Whenever we go to sleep the world never stops turning. Contrary to belief even our own private lives do not stop. The electricity still charges, the water bill will still be processed, the air around us still circulates and depreciation still happens all around us. Sleep by design is a preparation mechanism, in other words it is rest so that you are more prepared to carry on where you left off.

There are different kinds of sleep in life when it comes to achievement and how they affect your success in life. There is the normal sleep for the body where the body needs to rest. This kind of sleep everyone on the planet takes part in it because it is absolutely necessary. Resting your body enables the body to take a break so that you can be fresher to interact with the world. Some form of success also depends on a person being able to sleep. However sleeping for too long can hinder your success. We live in a time based world and surely there is a season for everything as the earth goes round and round. In a day of twenty four hours if you miss an hour of productivity it means you delay the result. Let us say you have a story to write in seven days, your final day of delivering the story being Sunday morning. Your week starts on Monday and ends on the Sunday of it. If you decide to write the story on the first day of the week it gives you six more days to perfect the story and notice the errors, if however you write on Saturday night you have less time to perfect the story and to find the errors. That is what we do when we mistake resting for actual advancing in life. In rest you do not advance you actually prepare to advance. For every moment you sleep the world changes in so many ways. If you over rest in your life you will never find time to perfect your work or skills or simply to make more time to do other things.

The second type of sleep is the sleep where people instead of advancing are always doing the same things. Their minds and sprit are asleep all the time. All the person ever does is produce fruit, if they ever produce any, but they never multiply or become dominant in anything. In other words their thinking ability is asleep. Instead of creating new things or venturing into something completely new all they do is rest in the usual career or the same habits. The same way they were ten years ago is the same way that they are today. Most of the world is sleeping in this second sleep just like the first one. As humans we are naturally blessed in being able to create aspire and progress. This is why we have all the inventions around us. Most people sleep in traditions and culture and never wake up to the environment. Even plants understand the concept. Instead of staying dormant in the ground the seed quickly realizes the opportunity and sprouts in no time at all, a plant is born. Most of us are like dormant seeds always sleeping waiting for someone to wake us up but what we fail to realize is that they are very few people who go around waking others up. We are seeds placed in fertile ground which is planet earth but all we ever choose is to lie dormant preferring the cover of the ground. We are afraid to grow and experience new things. As a result we die as seeds and never experience the joys of life. A seed that dies in the ground without ever sprouting rots and nothing comes out of it. A seed that sprouts and becomes a tree grows and when it dies it continues on as it would have produced more seeds. In other words those who are truly alive never really die.

The only time it is too late to wake up is when we are dead.
Pro 6:9 How long will you sleep, O sluggard? When will you arise out of your sleep?
Pro 6:10 A little sleep, a little slumber, a little folding of the hands to lie down;
Pro 6:11 so shall your poverty come as one who travels, and your need like an armed man.

Sleep a Little but Not Too Much

In our lives we need to recognize what kind of sleep we are in and know how to deal with it. Sometimes we realize when we are young and wake up early whilst in other times we realize when we are older. It is never too late to wake up. The only time it is too late to wake up is when we are dead.

Your Million Dollars on Top of a Mountain

January 26, 2011 Leave a comment

Society is an interesting tapestry of individuals all woven into one world or rather organized system. in the world we find a very small percentage of people that actually are wealthy and a huge percentage that believe that wealth is not for them. The am zing thing is that ninety-six percent of the world will give up on their dreams and will never live a sustainable comfortable wealthy life where they are financially independent.

What we usually forget is that money is an idea, the moment you have an idea you have the money but what you then have to do is get the money. Let us say that there was one million dollars on top of every mountain in the world, every person who climbs up a mountain gets one million dollars. Now the thing is this, many people will try but the majority will never climb any of the mountains. Even if they see evidence of those who have climbed a mountain and got a million dollars they would still fail to climb any mountain. At first they would hear testimonies from those who have made it to the top of a mountain and with the excitement in them they will rush to any mountain to try and climb it. Some people give up before they even attempt to climb because when you are at the bottom the top seem so far. By just looking at the size of the mountain and the distance they have to climb they just decide it is too difficult.

The second group of people will rush to a mountain and in no time at all they reach a quarter of the way up but as they are still climbing up they start to realize that they do not have the necessary equipment. Their hands become sore and their feet numb from pain. These are the people who do not equip themselves with the understanding of how to climb mountains. They lack the education not school education but the knowledge on how to run a business. They just jump into things without the right equipment and sooner or later they are bankrupt of energy and just as fast as they started they descend the mountain and never try again climbing any other mountain.

The third group finds the equipment and in no time at all is now able to climb any mountain so they think. They climb the mountain they identify steadily enough and in no time reach half way or almost close to the million dollars. The problem they then face is that they climbed the mountain in the wrong season. In other words they were busy climbing the mountain but it was the worst weather to ever climb that particular mountain. In the world they are many mountains to climb, each with a million dollars on top but you have to find the right one to climb wherever you are and in the right season. So some people actually die climbing the mountains that they try whilst other just need rescuing off the mountain.

The fourth group on the other hand is the group that always gets to the top. People call them professionals and some just say they are very determined. This group surveys before they do anything. For this group they have already decided what they will reach the top of the mountain but all they now want is the strategy. This is the group who when they stand at the bottom of any mountain do not see a mountain but see the route they have to take in order to get to their million dollars. To them it’s not just someone else’s money it is their money also. They believe that they can and that it is also their right to get the money. This group does what it can to prepare, they have a way of getting the equipment even if it means loaning it from someone, and they study the weather and get the right equipment to survive in the weather. Before they climb the mountain, in their minds they have already envisioned it before they climb the mountain, in other words they have already seen their faith climb up the mountain. When other people tell them all these terrible stories of bankruptcy, and debts they are busy thinking of how they can best go over these uncertainties and if they meet these uncertainties how they can survive them. These are people who just do not give up, they continue going up even when everyone talks of recession, economic instability and whatever economic slowdowns happen. Sometimes on their journey up the mountain they meet huge obstacles on their path, they are not afraid to go around it and still go up. These people are the ones that make it in society. Sometimes they seem like they are climbing very slowly but to them it is the pace they choose, some of them climb very fast but at the end of the day when they come down the mountain they are holding a million dollars. The people that you see as presidents, CEO’s, artists, entertainers and all the wealthy different people in society are those people whose mountain climbing has brought them success.

If you have an idea in life, all you need is to realize that you are at the base f a mountain. Are you going to run away in despair or are you going to plan and climb. Doesn’t waste time get yourself the right tools, strategies and alliance, start climbing because the million dollars on top of these mountains around us are yours and mine; you just have to decide to get it.

Strategies of Marriage

January 18, 2011 4 comments

Ever wondered what the story would be like if we were to write the ever after of every fairytale after the two lovers have found each other for such fairy tales as Cinderella and the prince. Would you not want to know how they lived in the house and what kind of rules they had, or maybe how they treated each others families and friends? It would be interesting to understand that because after the day of marriage another adventure surely does begin.

In life you need a strategy in order to make it whether it be careers, war, journeys and believe it or not even marriage. When two people are involved in a relationship intending to get married they need to consider a few things. To start with you have the material concerns, things like food, clothes, and shelter. In the dating world the guy takes the girl out to all these impressive places and buys her all these gifts but the thing is that most of the time it’s just a lie. It is like presenting a mirage, pretending that one has a certain status in life so as to appear as being able to take care of the girl. This is why when the girl gets pregnant the guy runs, not because he is afraid of babies or pregnant women but because he knows he cannot take care of the baby, the mum and the rest of the responsibilities. As a couple, people need to plan and be honest with each other on how they plan to take care of one another.

Secondly there is the whole thing about unseen virtues. It is one thing to be nice when dating and it is another thing to have character and discipline when things are not so easy. When two people are together and are dating there is the whole thing about saying the nice things, but how many people actually mean it. How a girlfriend reacts when you cannot afford to buy her a valentine present will go a long way in telling you how she will react when things are not so rosy in the marriage. Of course one cannot always judge by one incident, you need to stay long enough in a relationship to see the real character of a person. If all you ever do is meet in a club, or restaurant then you are far from knowing the person. He or she needs to know who you are, what you are going through, where you come from because all these are importatant; believe this article and not me, these things will affect how you go forward.

Thirdly you need to have a plan for the kids. Children are a blessing and so should never be treated like a burden. People need to think of the kind of lifestyle they want their kids to have, the clothes, the school, the home and the parents they should have. There is nothing as painful as watching your kids starving whilst you are there and you cannot do anything. A family is a long term vision which you plan in the short term as well as the long term, it is the one thing that you should think about every day.

I hear people saying they want to get married, but are they getting married because of the idea or because they found the one true love that they will strategise with in life to make life beautiful. Life can be ugly if you marry for the wrong reasons. At the end of it all you should ask yourself these question, what strategies do you have in your marriage or relationship as a couple.

What Is Your Center?

January 13, 2011 Leave a comment

The universe is awash with concepts and principles in its design such that if we took the time to understand them we would certainly understand life better. The concept of a center is simple yet reflects in our everyday lives as well as the organization of any substance in life.

For everything that exists, there is a center to which the surroundings relate to. It is that center that defines how things will move or how things will operate. When you find the center you will thus be better prepared to tackle life head on. The earth has a core which if this core was disrupted we would more than feel the effects. Every household has a particular person who is the center of that home. It could be the mum or the dad, or it could be one of the kids. Society in large has a center which defines the culture or the traditions of it. It is that center that is then manipulated in order to create certain trends or fashions in lifestyles. Religions also have a center of belief, which sustain their existence. Hold on we are about to get to the point.

When we think we are about to be hit by something we cover our heads or we try as much as to block the head from any damage, simply because we believe this is the center and it is. The medical practice has already proved we can transplant any part of the body from the heart to limbs, to just about anything but not the brain. The center is the one thing that sustains life or existence of anything, when it is disrupted the surroundings area is critically disturbed or destroyed. Some societies base their centers on money, some on democracy, some on kings, whilst some on religion; at the end of the day if one is able to destroy that base the society crumbles. It therefore corresponds that the center must be something protected such that it cannot be destroyed if the existence around it is not to be destroyed. This brings us to the topic of this article, what is your center?

Biologically we know the center of your body is the brain simply because you cannot replace it, in contrast to what most people think of the heart. However, when it comes to your mind what you hold as your center determines your entire success in life. Remember what you hold as your center if it is destroyed so are you. If you believe it is money when the money goes so do you go as a person, if it is a person when that person dies so does your world, if it is a career if that goes so does your life. Literally what you hold as the center of your life will determine how far you will succeed and exist. The other thing about the center of your life is that you can never be better than its qualities. If you believe that a certain person is the center of your life then you will never be better than that person, if you believe that the center of your life is a career then your lifestyle will always be determined by that career. The limitations of what you put your trust in are the boundaries of your life.

Our minds function in relation to what we believe is the ultimate guide in our lives. For example when a person is making a new year’s resolutions if they believe that money is the center of their lives then they will always base their plans on the amount of money they think they will make during the year. If a person believes that their career is their center they will make plans based on the opportunities the career may seem most likely to offer that year. If a person believes that their center is a particular person then every dream they make will be based on the achievements and presence of that person. It is that simple. If a person believes God is the center of their life depending on the limitations of the God and the qualities of that God then that person usually sets their resolutions according to what their believe their god is capable of helping them to do.

As a person if you are making resolutions, what are you believing in?Aare you really making resolutions based on what you really need and want or are you just making them based on the limitations of the center of your life? Whilst some people are making plans to buy house are you making plans to find a better place to rent this year? Whilst others are making plans to fly to another continent for the holidays are you making plans to visit your neighbor next door for the holidays? Are you dreaming and planning big or are you just a prisoner of your own fears and centers? Hey, get the book “You Have All Been Fooled”, and let’s chat.

Mat 6:20 Stockpile treasure in heaven, where it’s safe from moth and rust and burglars.
