The Wheel Of Life

How To Improve Your  Lifestyle

the wheel of life

When I say the wheel of life, I am talking about our life style or cycle from when we were toddlers, teenagers, adults, married with family, and when we are old and from my point of view this also includes all the challenges of our lives, what we have faced in our relationship, love life, other aspect of our lives and what our achievement and loses are and what we stand to gain at the end of the day.  This also involves our goals, ambitions, prospects, our plans for tomorrow and the future. What do we really want for ourselves and our family and how do we make them and our selves happy through our goals plans and achievements.

This really is a life cycle and talking about our goals, where do we really stand as per achieving them, we want the best in what we do as accountants, bloggers, creators, doctors , best fathers and mothers, best husband’s, lovers and so on, but do we go through this process of being the best by being lazy or procrastinating all the time or by  working hard and dedicated at what we do or by living a life that is of no value to us?.  I believe being focused and doing better things that will project us as good and better role models for ourselves, our families, children and neighbors alike would be the best way to go, thereby making us the best in our different fields of interest as bloggers, writers, engineers and whatever profession we are in  and this all circulates or revolves round our careers, family, friends, romance, fun , recreation, health, money, personal growth and our environment.

There are a lot that needs consideration when it comes to improvement and progress in our lives:

1. We need focus and dedication in whatever we do to get to our life goal
Sometimes we are stock when we are really trying to move forward and what can we do in situations like this?, So being focused would be the way to go.

2. There is nothing as good as committing ourselves to taking action and what steps do we need to take and be satisfied in our different areas of life especially in our Business, Career, Studies, Health and fitness, finance, social life and friends, with our family, in our love life, recreation and fun, contribution to society and personal growth, so we need fulfillment in various aspect of our lives and this all comes to hard work, dedication, focus and taking action and doing the best we can to get to where we want.

How to be a real and true friend

What Do you Need to Be a True Friend

true friend

True and real friends are hard to find this days but they are always there at the corner.  When you find one, try your best possible to keep that friendship and there are many factors that you need to keep that relationship.  The quality you need is being a good and real friend and the values of a true friend always comes from the heart. looking out for a friend is a long process and to do so, you need to appreciate and show them the care and love they need all the time no matter the situation. Talking about friendship it has its own price sometimes, because some will be by you no matter what the situation and some will not, but most important is the realization that every friendship or relationship you build is very important and has no price to it.

real friend

what qualities do we really need as a friend?, It really depends but overall what you need is trustworthiness as a true friend and this includes making a promise and fulfilling it. If by any chance you fail on your promise ,then you have some explaining to do. There are so many things that could make a relationship sour, but being true to your friend, keeping and fulfilling promises could go a long way and don’t ever make promises you can’t keep, but as we all know we are humans and nobody is perfect but make sure you avoid not keeping your words with your friends.  As we all know being dependable always helps in a relationship because every good friend want someone they can rely or count on at all times, that is why being dependable is what we need and that is one of the true qualities of a true and good friend. Nobody wants someone who is not reliable especially for a friend.

friend

There are so many things that Could make you stand out as a true friend, Be happy for your friend at every achievement.  We do make mistakes all the time as humans, so you should apologize when you make a mistake or upset your friend. Be honest with them in whatever way you can and be honest about your feelings towards your friend if the situation warrants it and make them realize what they have done to hurt you without hiding or holding back how you feel.  Honesty is the first key to every good friendship or relationship and any relationship placed on honesty, truthfulness, love, understanding, care for one another, respect, confidence in one another, dependability will go a long way.   If your friend tells you something in confidence, keep it and don’t discuss it with anyone else

friend

Be a good listener, avoid being ahead of your friends when it comes to conversation and when they are passing through hard times, be there for them especially in times of crisis. Lets say he has a pet and it ran away, be there for them by trying to help to find it or if he or she is at the hospital or sick at home, be there to support and giving a good and reliable advice is one duty of a good friend especially when the situation warrants it without making it mandatory for them to take your advice. Try being supportive and learn to forgive and forget, there are times when they have their own way or attitude, all you have to do is learn to accept them for what he or she is.

 

Are you good at what you do? What would you like to be better at

How To Improve yourself

goodNaturally we have different talents and knowledge of different kind and we all cannot be good at the same thing at the same time which warrants the question which is what are you better at? are you better at what you do and how can you be better at what you do. I would say that I am good at what I do most of the time. I put in some effort to do things that interest me but sometimes it takes a while to become good at it.  life would be boring and uneventful if you are good at everything you do and then there would be no challenges and there would be no room for improvement, creativity and progress .  Making effort and improving at something is part of the challenges which allows you to grow as a person. Sometimes the process of achieving a goal or getting what you want is more appealing than completing the goal itself because of the challenges that come with it.

 

goodWe all have different areas of Interest and some of us could be could be good engineers, doctors, artist, writers, bloggers, journalists and so on but would like to improve on whatever they do. For instance some people are very good at excel, Microsoft word and other application programs and would like to improve on it. Many of them would want prefer being a better geek at what they do and sometimes could be good at something entirely different. If you are a writer you could improve on your writing skills.  We have a lot that we can improve on and do with our interest, skills and we can increase our proficiency with our communication skills as a writer, all we need to do is to focus, get busy and take action.

good

Some people see in us what we don’t see in ourselves which could be a great improvement to what we do and could influence our greatness and improvement. I was talking to someone who said her friends thinks she is a good cook and an excellent mother and she said she loves being a mother and sometimes she behaves like the kids ,playing dancing and coloring.  As a mother she loves cooking and improving herself by trying any recipe that comes her way. As the case maybe, everyone wants perfection at what they do. some skaters like being professionals, some bloggers likes being perfect and some writers want creativity and better write-ups and so does it apply to our other areas of interest. Some say i am not good at anything and some say i was good at writing and every other thing that i do but don’t command that same kind of mastery anymore, but the fact remains that they can meet their goal and be better at what they do.

goodSometimes I just can’t keep up with  the world. I am doing the best i can, but time flies and I often give up. And I have this project i am working on about writing and i find it difficult writing even a word. It is terrible and the reason being that i have always been good at what i do, but i am sure i can get there again.  So in my opinion, having confidence in yourself is the first step forward to handle any situation either disappointment or rejection.  You need to tell yourself that you can do anything you want to do in this world. I know that I have the skills, and abilities to find the perfect job. If you work hard and put your heart into what you do, you can do anything that you want in your life.  especially when you are not far from people who want you to succeed in all that you do.

Christmas is a special time where kids are happy and want to show it by going to Christmas parties and singing carols and Christmas sing and there are lots of important and necessary things happening for everybody. It is really a time that everybody is looking forward to.  i remember as a little kid, this is a time that we are always looking forward to, because we always have fireworks and a lot of fun including going to parties and a lot of eating and drinking, it’s all fun time for all.

Christmas is a peaceful and mood changing period when everybody forgets about their life challenges, sorrows pains and whatever they are going through. It is a season of great impression on all grounds and it is a wonderful time that needs consideration by both kids and adults, so it’s a season of happiness, song, celebration and joy.  Christmas has always been a holiday celebrated carelessly, both pagans, Christians, millennia and Jews alike have become part of the season’s festivities, and it is only few people who consider the celebration’s intrinsic meaning, history, or origins. The joy of it is what really matters and not its origin.

fun and game

Most of the most popular Christmas customs which  includes the Christmas trees, Christmas presents and Santa Claus.  Most people who are happily preparing for the Xmas celebrations would rather not know about the holidays real origin or significance. even if they know the history or origin of Christmas, they do not care because of the fun and happiness that it brings and that is what really counts or matters.

xmas

I remember the Christmas song:” Happy Holiday Happy holiday, happy holiday While the merry bells keep ringing May your every wish come true.  Happy holiday, happy holiday May the calendar keep bringing Happy holidays to you.  Come To Holiday Inn If you’re burdened down with trouble, If your nerves are wearing thin Park your load down the road And come to Holiday Inn.  If the traffic noise affects you Like a squeaky violin Kick your cares down the stairs And come to Holiday Inn.  If you can’t find someone who Would set your heart a-whirl Take your car and motor to The home of boy meets girl.  If you’re laid-up with a breakdown, Throw away your vitamin Don’t get worse, grab your nurse and come to holiday inn?” It would be a good thing to bring your family and friends together at this time of the year.  “Happy Holidays”.

The beauty of thanksgiving

Thanksgiving as a way of life

giving thanks

thanksgiving

 The hustling and bustling, the excitement, the preparation, the announcements, the radio and television discussion about thanksgiving makes one to wonder how it would be devastating if there is no Thanksgiving, but for everyday that passes in our lives we always have a thing or two to say thank you for. Is it the job that we got or the birth of our kids or the house that we bought or the new car that we have or our kids graduating from school and we are happy for the blessing of God by giving us good and understanding neighbors or friends that always want to hear us out and listen to what we have to say and the people we have in our lives. We are thankful for all that has transpired in our lives from different angles of our various lives, starting from the beginning of the year till date.

It was a great and wonderful day when we went out to the salvation army place to appreciate the thanksgiving, the hall was full of people, the kids were playing around, the adults were discussing, the ushers were helping people with food and other activities in this place and the beauty of it all is the interaction and the happiness you see on people’s face on that particular day, the DJ was there doing his thing and the most exciting part of it was the gift that was given out from the ticket that was given out to everybody and to make it more elaborate was the band that played at this occasion, the little children that were singing and playing around and the host and I then said to myself, no matter what your situation is and whatever you are going through, we need to give thanks for every single day of our lives, for every single breath that we breathe and for the lives of our family and friends.

some are in the hospital not able to go out or see friends, but the lives that they have is worth being thankful for and it is always a thing of beauty to say Our father in heaven we thank you, if that is the only prayer we have, it is worth it. We have always been thankful for everyday of our lives and when we sleep and wake up, but the most beautiful thing about thanksgiving is being able to say thank you after all our lives experiences on the thanksgiving day is absolutely amazing.  Some families go out on that day to the movies to have fun which is part of the beauty of thanksgiving.  One other thing that i appreciate and value about the thanksgiving is the black Friday, a lot of family is making preparation for this day so they can buy stuff for a moderate price and enjoy the bliss of the thanksgiving ceremony and another thing that i realize is people going out on black Friday despite the cold to buy stuff for their various families.

Real Life Testing

Life Experience Test

real life test

Life always has its own challenges and its own test and Real life testing occurs not when all is going well but when we have challenges and great life experiences.  Life as we all know sometimes has its ups and down which includes different events and issues arising  and that is where our experiences of life comes in, and life experience is sometimes considered Real Life Test, humans being what we are always want to make the world a better place. We always have a purpose to life and committing to that purpose is a necessity and it is the beginning or foundation of every good thing that comes our way in life. whatever we are doing we have to make sure we do it right because time waits for nobody and life waits for no one either and that is why we have to keep moving and doing what we love doing best.

  There is a particular quotation which i love by an unknown author which says “Life is too short to wake up in the morning with regrets. So love the people who treat you right, forget about the ones who don’t and believe that everything happens for a reason. If you get a chance, take it. If it changes your life, let it. Nobody said that it’d be easy, they just promised it would be worth it.” Author Unknown  I have realized that the earlier you face your goals and purpose in life the better,  for life would be much easier, understandable and this will make achievements and many great things happen. As we all know challenges of life includes financial, relationship, work and many more ,but they all revolve round achievement of life and the more achievement we have of our dreams and goals the better for us.teacher

life test

The past always holds us down and due to this we always have the fear to make a leap of fate or try other things, but many a time this becomes a great hindrance to us and our progress, but as the saying goes “nothing venture nothing gained”, our experience of life is a great instrument or tool that will help us in getting to our destination if used properly and diligently but no matter what the situation and making that leap of fate is our key to stardom, progress, miracle and greatness.

 For us to get to our goals as a blogger,writer,engineer,lawyer or whatever you are, the process of goal setting is the answer to most of our needs and it helps in focusing on what you want to do or need to do and not what others assume you should do and this will surely help in your life accomplishments. It is always a good thing to instigate change and transformation and if possible be the one to shine the light for others to follow. As we all know life is full of opportunities and getting hold of the best opportunities is the greatest fulfillment of life.

“Often, the most extraordinary opportunities are hidden among the seemingly insignificant events of life. If we do not pay attention to these events, we can easily miss the opportunities.” Jim Rohn  Our abilities and attitude to life is a great factor that could bring about our success in life. The challenges and life experiences could stressful and at the same time challenging and boring, but that does not mean we should give up for there is always joy in the morning.  Try being consistent and persevere no matter how tough and difficult it is.  “Are you bored with life? Then throw yourself into some work you believe in with all your heart, live for it, die for it, and you will find happiness that you had thought could never be yours.” Dale Carnegie

Ability To Do Things We Least Expect

The Ability To Do Things That Are Unique And Beneficial

Ability

Sometimes we do have doubt in our ability to meet our goals and due to this doubt we allow ourselves domination by inefficiency and uncertainty thereby making it impossible to focus .  As we all know “Ability is the confidence to do things and attitude is the ability to get our goals.” but, great ability with a very bad attitude can lead to a lot of things such as doubt in ourselves,procrastination,depression , sometimes lack of confidence and a lot of other things that we cannot comprehend.

expect

Looking at it critically, confidence in ourselves can encourage us to archive a lot as long as we have the will, zeal and determination to go for what we want. baby step is good  but also it is good to move faster in our motives, goals and inspiration so that we can get to our destination on time.  There are all kinds of abilities but natural abilities are like trees planted by the waters which brings out its fruits in its own season.  Ability coupled with attitude always make room for doing things that are unique and beneficial.

ability

Out of the blue we do things that we list expected and some funny situations arise that we do not know how it came about. ability to do things can lead to creativity, self-consciousness and the right attitude to get this goals. Ability coupled with the right attitude can do a lot of magic. people with the right mindset and the ability to do things can get their inspiration at the least expected moment. they always follow their heart even if they are not convinced of the outcome of whatever they are doing.  Sometimes failure comes their way but they never give up.

Sometimes we judge ourselves by what we believe we can do or our ability to do things and on the other hand people judge us by our achievements. Growth is sometimes determined by doing things beyond what you already know. I was reading  a quote which kind of interests me and it says “If money is your hope for independence you will never have it. The only real security that a man will have in this world is a reserve of knowledge, experience, and ability.” Henry Ford which I am sure is food for thought.  Ability to do things goes a long way and its all about confidence from my point of view, from the little we know Big and good jobs always goes to men who can prove themselves worthy of that job.

Ability

As humans we always ability to think and plan ahead of time. The way we think and plan are different from each other,Some do plan further ahead than others. There are definitely advantages to planning ahead, but on the other hand flexibility is the other of the day.
