10 FACTS YOU MUST NEVER FORGET


We are going to be considering ten important facts that you must never forget in order to keep soaring. The difference between great men and common men lies in these facts. The difference between you and the you you have always dreamed of becoming, lies in these facts. To get the best of it, analyze your life even as you study each points.

Challenges Makes You
Unfortunately, majority admits that, challenges are obtacles to success. I don’t agree with that. Show me a man who has never encountered challenges and I will show you a great failure. Challenges are not purnishment but rather, a great teacher stocking her students with the necessary skills to get to the top. The problem is not that there’s a problem, but seeing every challenges as a problem.

You went for an interview and your name wasn’t short listed among the selected few, that’s a challenge; a challenge that you should never to give up. What about sitting for an exam and the result turns out to be the unxpected, that’s a challenge too. How you respond to these challenges is what really defines you.

Dreams Are Roadmap
I love dreamers, no man gets to me without having dreams says Success. Dreams are pathways to a great future. I’m still searching the world to see that successful man that never had a dream. But for now, there’s not a soul. The more you dream, the clearer your route to this great future. You’re never too old to dream a new dream. Joyce Meyer once said, “A 2Naira pencil and a dream can take you anywhere”. Do you have a dream?

Attitude Sustains You
Dreams can take you to the top, but it takes attitude to remain there. It’s not neccessarily food that sustains a man, but having the right attitude does. Many has been dragged low because of ATTITUDE. The most valuable asset you can posses is a positive attitude towards your life. Bad attitude is an enemy of great dreams and destiny. It’s good to have great dreams, but much more, have a positive attitude.

Friendship Can Build And It Can Also Destroy
You cannot be associating with chickens and expect to live like the eagle. Your friends are the second you. What they say to you and how you relate with them has a way of affecting your life either positively or negatively. Ask yourself this question, is this friend really adding value to my life or bringing out the worst in me? Being social does not mean you should accept everyone that comes your way as a friend. Keep friends that uplift you up in all ramification. Always keep in mind the words of Warren Buffet, “It takes 20 years to build a reputation and 5 mins to ruin it. If you think about that, you ‘II do things differently.”

Believing In Yourself Counts
We might ask ourselves, what tools do we have? What can we count on? You can count on youself. Beleive me, yourself is your best ally. You know who you are, even when sometimes it becomes a little blurry and you make mistakes or seem to be veering off, just go deeper. You know who you are. You know the right thing to do. And when you make a mistake, it’s alright—just as the song goes, pick yourself up, brush yourself off, and start all over again.”—From Patti Smith speech at Pratt in 2010.

One thing that no man can do for you is, believing in yourself on your behalf. You must develop that energy of self belief if you want to go far in life. Self confidence comes from the degree of your self belief, which in turn dictates your self worth.

Loving What You Do, and Doing What You Love
Fulfilment is doing what you love doing and at the same time being paid for it. The job you are into, is it what you love doing? Doing what you love is a product of dream pursued. There’s a great joy that resides in loving what you do and doing what you love. Most successful men are men who do what they love and are being paid for it.

Failure Is Never The End
It took Thomas Edison 10,000 times before he was able to invent the electric bulb. Guess what he said, “I haven’t faiiled, I’v found 10,000 ways that won’t work.” Do you have such lingering spirit as Edison?

What about Abraham Lincoln? He failed in business twice and was defeated in 8 elections before becoming the 16th President of United States. He never accepted failure as failure but he took it as an opportunity to begin better.
Failure is an opportunity, maximize it to your advantage. “The greatest glory lies not in never falling, but rising every time we fall.”—Nelson Mandela. Never forget that, tough people last longer.

Getting The Right Knowledge
The difference between a Lawyer and a Doctor is the knowledge they got and how they impact with the knowledge. Ignorance is like a cancerous cell, it can kill. Get out of your confort zones and go for the right knowledge. Your esoteric knowledge is what makes you outstanding in a crowd. Get that knowledge that makes you different from the many.

Action
If you have been following these various points critically as outlined above, you will notice that there’s no point void of ACTION. You must act in order to achieve success. Nothing comes to the docile man, the dilligent gets the greatest portion.
Act on your dreams, be dilligent towards your goals and believe me, success will come to you.

Spirituality
Above all, be spiritually inclined. Every physical being you see today, is a product of spiritual discernment. You cannot be greater than who you worship. If you worship a stone, don't expect to be wiser or greater than that stone. So, build your self spiritually and everything you desire will come to you.
