DON'T BELIEVE EVERYTHING YOU'RE TOLD



don't be quick to believe anything you're told

Once upon a time in an African forest, a famer found an eagle's egg in a nest which had just fallen from a tree. He took it home and kept it in amongst his chickens under a brooding hen.  When the egg hatched, the mother hen
reared the eagle chick as if it were her own child.

And so that eagle chick grew up thinking that it was a chicken. It pecked like a chicken, it scratched like a chicken and it even walked like a chicken. As time went, it grew bigger and gazed at other birds in the sky.

Some of the birds would occasionally swoop down and say to it , "You are an eagle, you are one of us and you're the king of all birds. Come and fly with us."

But it would reply "I'm not an eagle, I'm a chicken," he'd tell them. "My mother's a chicken. I live like a chicken. I am a chicken. Leave me alone!"

And so it happened that this eagle lived and died like a chicken without every discovering who it really was.

Think about this story for a moment. This eagle totally conformed to its environment, lifestyle and beliefs without ever daring to take a risk, reevaluate itself and discover the truth about itself. It was even unwilling to listen to other eagles who totally recognised that it was indeed one of them.

Like this eagle, most of us believe everything we're told. We tend to think like most people and we usually want to believe what everyone else believes in. This leads us to lead a very mediocre life and in the end we end up just being averelse

There is a reason why we are different. You must not fit into the crowd, you must not be like other people. You have to be yourself, listen to yourself and take action  towards whatever you dream of.

All the successful people we know today all stood out because they did something differently. They didn't fit in. They discovered an entirely new way of perfecting themselves that no one else thought of. The leading scientists were able to challenge theories of their predecessors and discover new scientific facts.

We are not born to accept the norm, to be like everybody else and to believe in what everybody around us believes. You were born to stand out and be a shining light to your generation. If you become like everyone else, how will you effect change in your world?

Those things that are peculiar to you, those things that you're really interested in which few people around you admire or make jest about, HOLD ONTO THEM!

That other people are doing something does not mean you should join them to do it when you don't want to. That everyone believes something doesn't mean that it is true. You must challenge yourself and the the things that limit you of you want to discover who you really are. You must be daring, bold and courageous.

Don't be like the eagle which died like a chicken. Recognize who you truly are and develop that thing that makes you different from others. Our greatness lies in what makes us different from the crowd. What makes me different may not be what makes you different. You've got to find yours and develop it.

Know yourself and excel.

A Practical Guide To Quit Porn For Good

I don't need to start defining what pornography is to you, why humans are attracted to it and how it affects the brain. You can use Google to find them out. I believe why you are reading this article is simply to find out how you can end the desire to see pornography for good. That's what I'm going to FOCUS on. No distractions.

Almost everyone who uses the internet knows what porn is, even though we'd like to pretend that it's not there, but we all know it's there.

The internet is one of the best things invented on earth and has led to quick exchange of information across nations and beyond borders.

Ideally, things should be improving rapidly based on this development, but guess what? Few people are actually using that internet for something useful. Many have been drawn to the dark side of the net where pornography lives.

Web statistics really show that a lot more people are spending more time viewing porn sites and the number is increasing.

Enough of the pr…

The Definition Of A True Woman

Previously, I wrote an article on the definition of a true man. It would be fair enough to also write and article for the women who read this blog.

Women are beautiful, lovely and sensitive creatures way different from men in a lot of things both mentally and physically. They are special in their own way and also play very important roles in our society.

Just like in the case of the men, value systems seem to be changing for women too.

Most women seem to rate themselves these days based mainly on their looks. They spend so much time and money in ensuring they look very good, clean and posh. They can do anything to look attractive and get attention.

Some even go to the extent of almost going nude on social media just to feel good about themselves and get reassuring likes.

Painfully, most of these same women don't pay attention to what is inside of them. They often neglect the unseen qualities which make them who they truly are.

There are some women who boast about how many men the…
