Why You Feel The Emptiness

Dear Winners, I'm getting a lot inspired these days to write. And the idea to write on this topic came into my head two days ago while I was watching a documentary about Kid Cudi.  He in an American rapper best known for his different style in hip hop music. His music which were often about his childhood struggles related to mental health connected with a lot of people. He sorta created this space where artists began to really express their thoughts and emotions rather than the usual style of promoting gangsterism, flaunting their wealth through music and all. This earned him a lot of fans globally. He won two Grammy awards and has sold about 22 million records globally, he was successful by all standards. But in 2016, in a Facebook post he opened up about how he really felt. This was where he openly expressed to the world about how his anxiety and depression has ruled his life for as long as he could remember. You can read his post here. He got a lot of support, chec

Things You Must Avoid if You Do Not Want to Be Miserable

  Hello bold winners, This video from YouTube was shared by a friend online and the video really has a sarcastic way of making you really sit up. I felt it was a video worth sharing here. The only comments I have to make on it are just two:  1) Being suspicious can be a good thing in certain circumstances, but it doesn't have to make you unwilling to give people a chance to prove themselves or give you reasons to trust them. 2) Seeing yourself as special I think is a good thing for your self esteem as long as you understand that others are special in their own way too and it doesn't make you too full of yourself to look down on others. But asides from these two arguments which I have about 2 points mentioned in the video, I completely agree with every other thing mentioned. I will also add that trying to build a relationship with God, the creator who knows you better than you know yourself will make positively transforming your life based on the points of this video a

Why I Choose to Be Realistically Optimistic

Image
  Since my teenage years, I've always been particular about being inspired and motivated. I've always been inclined to reading books, watching movies, listening to songs that push me towards doing something great. Doing these things made me believe in myself and become very optimistic about my future. I always expected the very best and always put in my best in the situations I found myself. This mental disposition really helped me pull through a lot of rough times in my life. In general I adopted a more optimistic view about my life and even when things appeared to be going south, this view kept me focused, happy and motivated against all odds.  At a point I was getting quite addicted to the resources and once thought of becoming a motivational speaker. But what I quickly found out was that no one was willing to listen to a motivational speaker who hadn't accomplished something hooge (that's a funny way to say HUGE 😂) with his life.. so that thought was quickly replac

The Golden Key To Living a Successful Life: See your value!

Image
God is good! Believe this! See the value in yourself as human. The value God has already put in you! Don't see the doubts and limitations in your heart which the devil may have put in you through bad childhood experiences or general life experience from people you trusted! Focus on seeing the value that God deposited in you from the beginning! Then you will always be free to be at your best. The biggest trick of the enemy through your own mind is to make you keep on remembering past experiences in the past that make you feel like you're worthless. The more you keep playing the tape in your mind, the more you fail to see the value that God gave to you for FREE!  The strategy behind the trick is to make you forget that you have value of any sort by making you focus on the bad stuff.  You should rather be focusing on the good stuff.. which God has given to you freely and which is independent of anything of your own effort. The value is there! Just believe it and focus on it and yo

On Pride

  Pride is one of the greatest drawbacks in the life of humans. It comes top on the list of the 7 deadly sins. It's so subtle and dangerous that it is often confused with self respect, love for self and even admiration for oneself. Pride makes you feel as though you are better than someone else by virtue of the things you have or what you have achieved. And that in itself subconsciously creates a need to expect better privileges than others because you feel you are more "special" than other people. Even the best of people often fall to this. There are ones who claim to be too spiritual to relate to other people. That too is often an unnoticeable form of pride. You know you have pride when you see other people as lesser than you are and that puts you in a position where you are very likely to become insensitive to them. Pride too can keep one from moving higher in life.. because God resists the proud and exalts the humble. Now there is something that must be pointed out. B

Faith is the Ultimate Form of Motivation

Image
  Hello winners, It's second of July in the second half of the year and I am really excited that you and I have made it thus far hale and hearty! Of recent, I have come to see the magic of faith and how for me, it's the biggest source of motivation.  To begin with, let us all define what faith means and this will be the basis of the entire post. A quick Google search on "faith definition" gives the first definition of faith as "complete trust or confidence in someone or something." Merriam Webster dictionary has a slightly different variation of that definition and defines faith as: "firm belief in something for which there is no proof." The Cambridge English dictionary defines faith as: "great trust or confidence in something or someone." Since there is no clear cut way to measure faith using any physical scale, the first two definitions reflect the definition of faith used in this article. With that established, why is it the ultimate f
