HOW DO YOU RESPOND TO CHALLENGES THAT COME YOUR WAY?


What's your response to challenges?
Everyone on earth faces a challenge in one way or another. It's impossible to live without facing a challenge in any way. What really matters is how we respond to it. Consider the short story below:

A farmer once had a troublesome donkey which always gave him a headache. One fateful
day while the farmer was working, the donkey fell into a neighbor's well.

The neighbor who owned the well saw what happened and reported to the farmer who became annoyed. He went to the well and yelled at the donkey "Serves you right!"

He then decided to bury the stubborn horse once and for all with the help of his neighbor. He started throwing in soil into the well expecting to bury the donkey.

To his surprise, the donkey dodged each heap that was thrown at it and then stood on top of it. The more the farmer heaped in more sand, the more the donkey dodged and stood on top of the fresh heap.

Gradually, the donkey rose higher and higher from the heap of sand and came out of the well unhurt. The wisdom shown by the animal earned the respect of the farmer and other onlookers who were amazed at the creature. #TheEnd

How do you respond to sand being thrown at you? Do you quit, complain, worry and do nothing about it? or do you persevere and tirelessly confront these challenges so you can finally emerge on top just like the donkey?

This is something we all should think about. Challenges are there to make us stronger, better, smarter and tougher. Always learn from your challenges, but never stop facing them. The day you stop confronting your challenges is the day you start losing.

You know better. You're a winner and winners face their challenges squarely.

Till next time,

Nigel

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…
