Ten Ways to Recognize Babies

February 22, 2011 Leave a comment

Growing up is not as easy as most of think, sometimes it takes three years, sometimes twenty to fifty years depending on the resolve of the persons. Babies are very adorable and loveable when they are growing up but adult babies are not so loveable, they are difficult to socialize with. There are ten easy ways to recognize adult babies around us. The difference between babies and baby adults is simple once we learn to recognize what a baby is.

Number one is easy, adult babies are always crying for no reason. In life you meet people who think the world is always at fault and all they ever do is complain and cry. You try to start a conversation and before you are even half way down the conversation they are already complaining. They blame the employer, the partner, the dog, the weather, the car, they try to blame anything and everything as long as they never blame themselves. Such people you will find in families, homes, offices and even in your own mirror looking back at you. They just never take responsibility for anything, all they believe is that the world is not fair and that’s all they think they need to know.

Number two is fascinating because babies are always playing in order to grow but these adult babies play in order to pass time. They never take anything and produce anything; it is considered a miracle when they actually do anything else. They spend day in day out making new year resolutions but come end of the year they achieve nothing if anything they actually get worse. They will tell you that this time around they are going to change but they never do. If you leave them today tomorrow they will still be in the same place still playing with their lives away. Unlike real babies, these adult babies play their lives away and realize when it is too late that they have wasted their time playing. Such people you should be careful what kind of responsibility to give them because they are just always playing.

Number three has to do with awareness of what is happening beyond the playground. Babies usually have no idea what is going on beyond their playground. These types of grown up babies have no idea what is going on with politics, economics and just the social happenings around them. All they think is that everything is ok and they expect other people to know. They can cross the street without even worrying about what is happening around them ; these type of people will change careers without ever knowing what they really want. They are the type of people who hear the news but cannot plan based on what is happening around the country. They always think someone is going to save them and take care of them. They never realize that it is also up to them.

The fourth thing is sometimes the most irritating, adult babies just do not listen. You tell them once or twice and they still go on to repeat the same thing. These type of babies you tell them not to play with fire and they still go on to play with fire, they prefer learning from the experience. These type of adult babies you can warn them about their future, life, careers, friends, habits and whatsoever that concerns them but they will still repeat the same mistakes and involve themselves with the same problems. Sometimes there is nothing you can do except to be there when problems happen but it will cause you much pain. If you adopt adult babies then you must be prepared to be continuously disappointed.

The fifth thing is that adult babies are sometimes just have no idea what they want. They can wake up today with a mood which you may not understand and will just be irritable. You can try as much as possible to console or understand them but they just get quite emotional and all you can do is watch or you can try to help, usually the helping does not help so you let them cry. These type of adult babies are dangerous because they can be so emotional they do all they decisions based on emotions such that they just never think twice about who it will hurt or what they will affect. These babies it is best to stay away from them, you do not them

Babies are beautiful and loveable but adults who do not grow up or take responsibility that is another level of baby and that level is dangerous. Sometimes when people are continuously disappointing you it could probably because you are dealing with a baby and you are not recognizing it.

How Big Is Your Mind

February 18, 2011 Leave a comment

One of the greatest illusions of life is the belief that everything has a volume that it can fit into. So we judge the size of anything according to what it fits into. We tend to measure everything in life such that we then feel comfortable because we believe being able to measure something is intelligence yet the mind is so much bigger than a simple measurement.

The brain of any species fits into the head, but that does not mean the mind must fit into that also. The term thinking out of the box tries to encourage people to go beyond the normal solutions and come up with new things. Most of us tend to think that life’s solutions are based on what we see and what we believe, but we never dare to come up with new things because our minds are simple the size of our heads. So a person who finishes college goes to create their resume, a person who is born in a family of dancers believes dancing is the only way to make money, children who come from a long tradition of restaurant owners can only imagine restaurants in their lives. At the end of the day people never really think of going outside the box, finding new careers, starting new businesses, branching out and expanding their activities.

The mind is such an amazing thing because it does not have an end; we are the ones who set the limits. We set boundaries in which we decide who we should live with, where we should stay, what jobs we are able to do and all that yet the mind has a universal potential. A simple example in order to understand the power of the mind is to understand imagination. When you close your eyes you can imagine anything and you can be anywhere, you can go anywhere you want and you can do anything that you want. What we fail to realize is that our imagination is the foundation of reality and that the limitations of the physical world are just an illusion. Instead of accepting the idea that we have and the possibilities we think up we tend to believe the illusion of the physical reality that things are impossible. The universe is a reality which we cannot see with our natural eyes because it is too big yet if you close your eyes and imagine the universe you can see all of it inside your mind. If you just close your eyes you can see all the stars, the moons, the space and the planets all inside your mind. Your mind is the foundation of reality that holds the possibilities of life in your grasp; all you have to do is believe and act.

If you think according to the limitations of your head you will always think according to the immediate because that is what your body sees. Your body only sees what is in front of you, it only touches what is close to it and it only feels what is near to it. If you only think within the context of your head you will only be able to make money according to the illusion of what you see is what you get which is a great lie. On the other hand if you embrace your mind as a universal place where anything is possible you will achieve greatness, you will create new things, start new businesses and live a better life. You will not be constrained by what the world tells you but you will believe according to what is within the possibilities of the universe.

A person whose mind is in the context of the universe has a greater vision of life. They create tomorrow today and live success before it even dwells on others. This is why others create products which the whole world is still using and create lifestyles that everyone follows all because they see in the context of the universe. So you can decide to either live according to the smallness of your head or you can live according to the greatness of the universe, after all there is a heaven and an earth, which is how the world started.

How to Recognize Opportunities in Doors

February 16, 2011 Leave a comment

When everything else is silent and still, progress does not stop. Somewhere within the serenity, new things are being birthed, new frontiers in technology are being discovered and new doors are being opened. The average person dreams of finding their pot of gold at the end of the rainbow or miraculously stepping on to a gold claim, however this rarely happens. It is not because people do not dream hard enough most of the time so they never find success; it is because they just never learnt how to open doors.

When we go to school we are taught how to measure quantities, how to memorize processes, how to write the right grammar, how to add and subtract amongst all sorts of things. Our exams are based on how much we remember what we were taught. It is about remembering historical dates, grammar correctness, using the right symbols in the equation but in all this we are never tested on how to open new doors or simply creating new things. The degrees that most people have simply mean that the person is good at following instruction because in order to pass school that is all you have to do. School is more of an institution where we are taught discipline in listening and remembering. Those who fail in school fail because they are not disciplined enough, they did not practice hard enough to remember all that they are taught. It is true that school is absolutely necessary in one’s life but it is a farce to believe that we actually learn how to open doors in school.

The fundamental thing we need to learn about a door is that there is always a door keeper and a key. Every door has a key that opens it and closes it. That key is what most of us lack to understand, it does not necessarily mean that the key is for particular people, it is actually for everyone which is why it rains on both the good and the evil. Opportunities are for everyone and doors are for all people to use. There are three ways that one can get a locked door to open, either you knock and the door keeper opens, you look for the key and when you find it you use it to open the door or you simply ask for the key from the door keeper. These are three processes that we need to be able to do in life if we are to find success.

When you recognize an opportunity, you sometimes have to knock at the door until it is opened. For example if you want an office to start a business you cannot just go and get the office, you need to recognize that there is a key to the office and a door keeper. If the offices belong to the city council then they are the door keepers and they have the key. You could start by going to their office and maybe when you are there they might refuse to see you. If the door keeper is refusing to see you or to listen to you, then you must knock on that door. You have to knock until the door keeper has no choice but to open the door. If you really want something you cannot just sit and hope the door will open on its own you have to knock and it shall be opened to you. Most of us knock for a day and we give up. Imagine if most of the people that achieved all the great things in life had stopped knocking, where would society be. We give up too easily and we expect that life is going to feel sorry for us and things will just start working. Unfortunately it does not work like that if you do not knock you might never receive the success you crave for.

Sometimes people happen to get close to a door and all they need to do is ask for the key but the sad thing is that most people have already concluded that if they ask the answer will be no so they never ask. An example is a person who wants to buy a car but has no money for it. It may happen that they maybe an opportunity to ask for a loan from their friend, bank or someone close but they never ask because all they believe is that the answer is no so they never ask. Yet if they ask they might be surprised that they not only get the money but they are given under no conditions and they are not expected to give it back. If you are to ask for something and the answer is no the first time you need to understand that the fact that you have asked for it means that you have made an appointment with the future for that which you asked for to come. If you ask for something today you might receive tomorrow, the defeat of today is not the defeat of tomorrow. The person you asked from might remember years later and give you simply because you once asked.

The other process about keys is that you may not necessarily need to ask the door keeper to give you a key you might just need to find the key. An example is where there is a problem in life where for example people have so much information they need to store but the problem is they just do not have a place to store it. In comes someone who invents the personnel computer and there you go a door is opened for that person. This is why people like Steve Jobs, Michael Dell, Bill Gates, and Mark Zuckerberg are rich. They are rich because they found the key by finding a solution. There are many problems in life, all you have to do is look. The world is in chaos, any solution can actually work to bring you success. People have weight problems, reading problems, studying problems, saving problems, investment problems, make up problems, skin problems, relationship problems, humor problems and so many other things. All you have to do is get a solution and you have the key to open the door.

So you can sit there and quite hoping life will change. You can sit there dreaming of making a difference in life but if you never learn how to open doors you are probably going to die and leave a legacy of failure for you and your children.

Which Report Do You Believe?

February 10, 2011 Leave a comment

In life we have two reports that are presented before us. Most of the times we do not realize it but we actually answer to one of the two reports without knowing it and in the end we apply the recommendations on that report. Each report always tells us the situation in its own words and a recommendation is given. If you look at yourself truthfully you will discover that you are a product of one of these reports.

The first report is the vision report on earth. It is three dimensional and lacks any true belief. It is the report that most people tell you every single day. They tell you what is impossible and what is possible. They describe to you when things will end and how you will fail. This report is always built on describing the situation as difficult, impossible, not worth it, trying, and tiring amongst many other words. When you read the report or when you hear it, you automatically feel tired and just cannot understand why. This report saps all the energy from you and sometimes makes you dread to come out of bed. This report forces you to reward yourself very rarely. The recommendations are not so good from this report because it always defines your limitations and never really considers that your capacity can be increased. When you try to start a business, it’s the first report you are given, when you want to get married it is the first report you hear, when you want to just succeed in life it is the first report that is presented to you. The interesting thing is that moist people are now experts in writing and compiling this report. They will tell you of their experiences and how they failed and how difficult it is. It is so wide this report that it also has experiences of other people you have never met.

The second report is the truth. This report is there for us all the time if only we took the time to listen or understand the truth about life. This report tells you that there is nothing impossible. It is a report that believes in all things. It is the report that declares that there is nothing impossible on heaven or on earth. It is the report that believes and is convinced of success before success shows up in one’s life. It is the truth and the wisdom of life. It is the report that urges you to move on even if a thousand people fall on one side; and another ten thousand people fall on your other side. It is the report that writes and declares itself that even when everyone else fails, you and your family will not. It is the report that convinces you to slay giants and to blow the trumpet to go to war even with a handful of soldiers. It is the report that brings flavor to your life and says you are the salt of the earth. It is with this report that many people have become legends and mysteries; some have become the definition of history itself whilst others have dates marked against their birth. It is this report that has defined leaders who went on to move society into the light of wisdom.

Like any other report presented to you, you have a choice to choose what you will believe. You can believe that which seeks to bring fear to you or you can believe that which brings love and courage to your life. In all things be careful what report you listen to. On earth they may tell you things are impossible but for a person who believes, you must believe that it is already done and achieved before you even try it out.

Strategies of Life-A Bowl of Soup

February 1, 2011 2 comments

The decision of today is the birth of tomorrow. Everything that we are is a result of the decision we took as we were growing up and as we were yesterday. Our successes are defined by the level of vision that we have, the beliefs, the faith and the works that we decide to apply.

The story of Esau tells a tale of a young man who was so hungry that he sold his birthright for a bowl of soup. This unfortunately is what we do every day in most of our lives, instead of seeing the long vision we live for the short day. Things that we decide to do for a short while can affect the rest of our lives. These things will determine just how much we have to fight in life in order to gain that greatness or to become as well off as we desire. A simple act of drunkenness leading to driving can result in an injury that lasts a lifetime, an act of texting whilst driving can result in an accident that will affect us forever, a simple act of sex for one night for the fun of it can result in a baby you never planned or are not able to take care of, an act of violence in a moment can result in murder and imprisonment for a lifetime. Life requires a strategy and it takes certain decisions to make it in life. You may not be able to control what happens in life but at least you can have self-control.

To begin with, you must have a clear a vision of what you want in life. Most people are just dreamers but none are specific dreamers. There is nothing wrong in being specific about your dreams if anything that is the right thing to do. If you do not know what you want no one will know it for you. This is why when most people grow up they compromise on what they really wanted and just accept whatever comes along. For example, a person may grow up saying they would love to one day buy a big house. The problem with that dream is that it never specifies when one wants to buy the house, where you plan to buy the house and how you are going to buy the house. So people turn twenty, thirty, forty and then fifty years old still never buying that big house. The lack of specificity is what results in a compromise. College is an interesting place to be because it is the one place where dreams are made and lost. The moment people get to college they all want relationships, not because they need it but because everyone is doing it. No one really thinks on what kind of partner they want, all they want is a cute someone, a handsome someone, and a beautiful someone. The problem with this is that all these attributes do not tell you anything about the future. They are things that last today and not tomorrow. Being handsome does not bring food to the table; being cute does not take care of the family and being beautiful does not create an inheritance for your children. At the end of college people are hurt, have become parents, are in relationships they do not understand all simply because they forgot to be specific on what they really want in life.

When you know what you want you have to be prepared to be patient and to fight for it. Nothing just comes to you, by just sleeping only nightmares do that. Life is like a game of chess, you need to be thinking all the time. Every move you make must be calculated towards what you want to achieve. For example if you want to be a doctor in life, you will major in subjects that are related to medicine and sciences, why would you spend time doing arts only. Everyday you must look at what you are involved in and ask yourself how it helps you to achieve what you want. Sometimes your decisions are just the stepping stones to another level towards your dream so you have to be patient. The people we call great are great because they spent time doing what they believed in, they did not compromise. When everyone says turn left yet you know you are supposed to go right then go right.

The problem sometimes is that we give up too easily. Thomas Edison had to fail more than a thousand times before he became a success. Mandela spent twenty-seven years in prison before he led South Africa to independence yet when he was set free he was just as wise and even wiser. Today’s defeat is not tomorrow’s defeat. A righteous man falls seventy times and still gets up to fight another day. Sometimes it takes a lifetime to achieve something or sometimes you may never see the results. Would Jesus for example have known that the belief he preached would last two thousand years and shape the course of the earth? Would the founding fathers of USA have known that they were creating the superpower of the future? Would Martin Luther King have known that one day they would be a black president in USA? Though these people did not see it happening then, they did all they did in faith, believing that truly they would succeed even after they were dead. In other words they saw their dreams come true before the dreams became reality. You must never give up because in not giving up you will create a great future for your children and their generation. Imagine if Bill Gates had given up, it is unthinkable. Everyone is capable of greatness; the difference is who gives up first.

In life we need a strategy, a plan that we set out and we never compromise on no matter what, something that we stand up for and know that we will succeed if we persevere. You can make it happen after all it rains on the just and the evil. God has a plan.
