Ever sat on your leg for a long time, or folded your hands for a long time without stretching them? What happens when you eventually stretch? Pins and needles, right? That is because our bodies were not created to stay immobile for long.
That’s why you’ll fall asleep in one position, but when you wake up you find yourself sleeping in a different position, not necessarily because you were having a bad dream but because your body can’t stay in one position for long. Your brain unconsciously moves it.
.......unless of course you don’t have any ideas.
In the words of George Bernard Shaw:
“If you have an apple and I have an apple and we exchange these apples then you and I will still each have one apple. But if you have an idea and I have an idea and we exchange these ideas, then each of us will have two ideas.” That is why you should spend time thinking every day.
I’d never thought about this until I thought about it. Sorry if this sounds like a #YogiBerra quote but it is not.
Not sure why or what I was doing when I suddenly thought of looking up the meaning of darkness from the dictionary.
According to the dictionary, darkness is the partial or total absence of light. In other words, where there is no light, there is darkness.
“It isn’t what you have, or who you are, or where you are, or what you are doing that makes you happy or unhappy. It is what you think about.” ~ Dale Carnegie
And that right there is why I say happiness is a choice.
It is a choice because once you know what makes you unhappy, you'll not want to stick around and wait for it to bring you unhappiness, will you? A normal person will not. He or she will gravitate towards what brings them happiness.
Some peple are so negative that every time they say something it affects all those around them negatively. Those are the kind of people to be avoided; they are toxic.
Their negativity is so strong that it causes more crippled minds instead of creating ripples of positivity all around them.
To such people I say this; if you can’t say anything positive then please don’t say it at all.
Use your mouth to cause ripples of positivity in the sea of life.
Be a ripple causer....
For a chef to make a buffet meal and have it ready for his guests to indulge, a lot goes into the preparation of the food. First, he has to know who his guests are and whether they are vegetarian or non-veggie. This information helps him prepare the menu items. Once he has the menu items, the next step is to find the ingredients needed, the tools (such as pots and pans) he will need to prepare the meal, not forgetting the cutlery he will need to serve the meal.
Sometimes we miss out on opportunities, or fail in certain aspects of life and business, not because we don’t know, but because we don’t know we don’t know.
It is safe to ask questions when in doubt, or when you don’t know something.
Not asking and messing up because you didn’t ask makes one dumber than a dumb person.
Forget about the bike; just looking at it makes me feel like going for my riding gear and riding this beauty for the next several hours. What a beauty! Anyway, I digress.
Everything you’ll ever want in life begins with you. The day I realized that if I want something achieved I have to achieve it myself, that is the day I realized I have no one to blame for where I am except for ME.
Very tricky “things” those are, yet there is no escaping them.
Every single day we have to make decisions that affect our lives in one way or another. If for instance you decided to stay home today without permission from your employer instead of going to work, then be prepared to face the repercussions of that decision tomorrow.
Has it ever occurred to you that most people see you as they see themselves, that the things they say about you are the things they themselves are?
That’s why some smart people came up with the theory that if you want to catch a thief, send another thief to catch him. Think about that for a minute.
People who know who they are don’t waste their time complaining. They have tuned their minds to be positive no matter what. They always look for something to be grateful for.
To them, the glass is never half empty; it is always half full.
Whereas it is good to know your limits, it is equally important to say NO to those limits.
The greatest breeder of limits is FEAR.
Because of fear many people have settled for less than they should.
Because of fear, many people have opted to camp on the roadside instead of climbing to the top of the mountain where their cabins are found.
Fear cripples. Fear limits you. The only way to say NO to your limits is by overcoming your fear.
Think about that for a minute….Done? Good.
Similarly it would be very awkward to find a car “sailing” on water, unless of course it is one of those modified ones that are accustomed to being on both water and land - the ones we see on movies and sci-fi channels.
Same case applies to a ship on the road. I mean, how would that even work? It wouldn’t even move an inch on the road without grazing some important parts, but place it in the sea and it preens like a peacock.
When I first saw this image, it gave me the creeps. I thought the dog had a peculiar skin disease only to realize that it was actually not a disease but just an illusion caused by the effects of sunlight streaming through a patterned lace curtain, whose pattern flatteringly landed on the dog, causing this eerie looking image.
I don’t know about you but I really hate it when people are all over my business, seeming to know what is best for my life, especially when they have no contribution towards it.
So today I’ll just let the wise men and women of our time speak on my behalf through these ten quotes...…
You must have heard the saying, “you are what you eat”.
That’s true not just for your body but also for your mind. If you constantly feed your body with junk, sooner or later you will see the results. The reverse is also true; if you feed your body with healthy food, exercise daily and maintain a healthy lifestyle all round, then the results will also be evident.
Is it possible to ignore a volcanic eruption?
I don’t think so. If anything, do so at your own peril.
Do you know that besides spewing fire from the top, in some instances a volcano can cause the earths intestines to growl ferociously, causing a major earthquake?
Success is and will never be easy.
Anyone who has ever succeeded in doing something (the right way) will tell you this.
I was looking at this picture of these guys scrambling for the ball and I realized they epitomize exactly what success is….
It doesn’t matter how hungry you are or how long ago its been since you last ate your favorite meal; the only way to eat food is one bite at a time.
Even if you were invited to the “Bestest” buffet in town, you can load your plate all you want but the only way to demolish that plate is by taking one bite at a time.
Same case applies to your dream or vision. The only way to achieve or realize your dream is by approaching it one bite at a time.
Watch your thoughts for soon enough you will become what you constantly think about.
That’s why Henry Ford said, "There are two kinds of people: those who think they can, and those who think they can’t. They're both right.”
