Find a product inside your purpose

To prosper with the hidden gem inside you, all you need to do is find a product inside your purpose. Your product will automatically become a solution to the problem you were destined to solve. You were sent unto the earth loaded with solutions and the capacity to unleash your immense potential. One strange fact I must point out at this junction is this- everything that is of immense value is found underneath the earth’s crust.

Crude oil, gold, silver, diamond, topaz, and other precious stones are found beneath the earth’s crust, waiting to be exploited. All you need to succeed in life is hidden on your inside. The moment you dig deep, it will come forth in a massive torrent. Find the solution you were created to provide, Thereafter, you can begin to enjoy a fulfilling life of financial freedom.

Deposited within every individual, is a gift or talent. This beautiful gift or talent differs from one individual to the other. Some have multiple gifts and talents, while others have just one.

No matter, the gift or talent you have, always have the desire to align it with your purpose in life. This will, in turn, help to create a valuable product around the gift and talent.

While growing up, I discover I had this gift of writing. I could create content with ease and come up with ideas within seconds. As I became older, I learned about information product packaging and how one can market this information products for profit.

All I simply did, was attend seminars and training on Information product packaging, and the rest is history. Today, I enjoy some of the skills I have learned and the amazing gift within me keeps flourishing daily.

You too can explore the huge opportunity available within your unique gift and talent and start enjoying the same results. It’s a lot easier when you stay within your area of strength and gradually build on it.

intelligent

I thought those who wore glasses were intelligent

While growing up, I was of the impression that girls and boys who wore glasses were intelligent and smart. It was a weird and unproven belief that I carried for years. Glasses, by the way, is not in any way associated with intelligence or smartness. Unfortunately, I just assumed blindly, that those who had it were intelligent.

Years later, while in the university, I had a funny encounter with a guy who was putting on glasses, and this incident changed my perception completely. It was during our 2nd semester exams and we were writing one of our departmental courses in the School Hall.

I had arrived on time for the exams and was not confident, because I never had the best of preparations for the exams. I was however delighted when a smart-looking guy in my department walked in to sit close to me.

What made me even happier was the fact that he was putting on glasses. I assumed, though erroneously, that he was super intelligent. It was an assumption that backfired so badly.

As soon as the exams started, I did my best to answer 3 of the 5 compulsory questions and there was still time left before the end of the exams. I looked by my side and saw my glass-friend looking so busy and focused. In my thought, I assumed he would be able to give me a hint that would be useful.

I asked him if he understands the number 4 question, and he looked at me blankly. “I was hoping you would help me with the number 1 question he stammered”. At this point, I was confused and disappointed. Later found out he had not written down anything meaningful.

Also found out he wasn’t as intelligent as I assumed, as the glasses were merely medicated glasses. I had to shift focus from my glass-friend and dig deep to complete the rest of the exams. It was a bitter experience.

My perception changed, and the whole idea about glasses and intelligence became a mirage. To date, I never stopped laughing each time I remember that particular incident because it would have been disastrous if I had put all my trust in my glass-wearing friend.

I had learned my lessons and now, when I see anyone putting on glasses, I understand that they are just like me. Some mostly, are just for fun, while others are for medical purposes. We all live in a funny world, and sometimes, our high expectations of others may be counterproductive.

Helping others to succeed

The beauty of helping others to succeed

Life is all about helping others to succeed and never about taking advantage of others in our quest to succeed. Unfortunately, the passion to succeed at all expense sometimes becloud our human nature. The greed to be on top at all costs can sometimes make some individuals forget the pain and suffering those they trample on in their quest for glory.

In 2019, a selfless runner, turned back to help a fellow competitor, who was sitting on the ground exhausted, just meters from the finish line. The runners were taking place in the CAT 10K Thailand Championship, around the Supachalasai Stadium in the capital’s Pathum Wan District, where there were highs of 32 degrees celsius. He sacrificed his chances to win a tournament but won the heart of thousands of spectators who cheered him on.

Read another inspirational story recently, and it drives home the beauty of helping others to succeed in life. Kenyan runner Abel Mutai was only a few meters from the finish line, but got confused with the signs and stopped, thinking he had finished the race. A Spanish man, Ivan Fernandez, was right behind him and, realizing what was going on, started shouting to the Kenyan to keep running. Mutai did not know Spanish and did not understand.

Realizing what was going on, Fernandez pushed Mutai to victory. A reporter asked Ivan, “Why did you do this?” Ivan replied, “I dream that one day we can have some sort of community life where we push ourselves and help each other win.” The reporter insisted “But why did you let the Kenyan win?” Ivan replied, “I didn’t let him win, he was going to win. The race was his.” 

The reporter insisted and asked again, “But you could have won!” Ivan looked at him and replied: “But what would be the merit of my victory? What would be the honor of this medal? What would my mother think of it?” The values are transmitted from generation to generation. What values do we teach our children and how much do you inspire others to earn? 

Most of us take advantage of people’s weaknesses instead of helping to strengthen them. Winning is good, but creating a lasting bridge of love and empathy is worth more than a thousand laurels put together. Let’s keep promoting positive values wherever we go and help others reach their goals in life

Our Journey in Life is too short

We are all on a journey on earth. The journey takes us through several phases in life. We fall and rise at each point of our beautiful journey in life. Sometimes we get to meet lovely people who make our transition along the path of life pleasurable.

Several years ago, a beautiful young lady sat on a bus. She was travelling to see her mum in a nearby city. At the next stop, a loud and grumpy old lady came and sat by her. She squeezed into the seat and bumped her with her numerous bags.

The person sitting on the other side of the young lady got upset and asked her why she did not speak up and say something. The young lady responded with a smile: “It is not necessary to be rude or argue over something so insignificant, the journey together is so short. I will be getting off at the next stop”. This response deserves to be written in golden letters: “It is not necessary to argue over something so insignificant, our journey together is so short”

If each one of us realized that our time here on earth is so short; that to darken it with quarrels, futile arguments, not forgiving others, discontentment and a fault-finding attitude would be a waste of time and energy.

Did someone break your heart? Be calm, the journey is so short. Did someone betray, bully, cheat or humiliate you? Be calm and forgive such a one, the journey is so short. Whatever troubles anyone brings us, let us remember that our journey together is so short. No one knows the duration of this beautiful journey. No one knows when their stop will come. Our journey together is so short.

Let us cherish friends and family. Let us be respectful, kind, and forgiving to each other. Let us be filled with gratitude and gladness. Smile,  laugh, dance, play, relax, joke and stop being serious about everything, let go of anger. Failure to do so only hurts you. The other person is moving on with life while you hold grudges.

In Life, we would always come across the good, bad and ugly. In all we do, let us learn to be kind, because everyone we meet is fighting a hard battle. Some may hide theirs with a smile. Others use beautiful makeups to brighten their inner hurt.

Our heart should always be ready to forgive another, for there dwells the secret of true happiness. Leave a lovely footprint in the sand of time. Become a beautiful memory in the heart of those you come across daily. After all, our journey together is so short!

purpose

Discover your purpose and start living your dream

The purpose is that feeling that you are a part of something bigger than yourself, that you are needed, and that you have something better ahead to work for. The purpose is what creates true happiness. J. K. Rowling got rejected 12 times before she finally wrote and published Harry Potter. Even Beyoncé had to make hundreds of songs to get Halo.

There is a popular saying about purpose: “When the purpose of something is not known, abuse becomes inevitable”. This quote is so true in every area of life. Some do struggle in life, even when they are talented or gifted in several ways.

How do I discover my purpose?

This is often the question of most individuals trying to find meaning out of life. The truth is that there are steps and guidelines to discovering your area of competence. For example, when people keep appreciating how good you are in certain specific areas, it may be a sign.

Most often, we don’t see our gifts or talents. People around us can help us point us in the direction of our purpose in life. In this case, you need to pay attention and never ignore what others are saying about you.

Another amazing way of knowing where your direction in life lies is to check inward. Take out time and do a soul-searching probe of your inner self. Your heart is the best tool to discover your true purpose and passion in life. Ask yourself some salient questions: what do I love doing for hours without getting bored? What gives me the greatest joy in life? What is my greatest passion?

The greatest successes in life usually come from having the freedom to fail. Ideas don’t come out fully formed, they only become clearer as you work on them. You just have to get started. It is never too late to start living your dream life. All it takes is to discover your true self and start working towards achieving that beautiful dream of yours.
