How To achieve our goals

What Considerations Do We Need For Progress And Improvements

the wheel of life

what am i talking about?, 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.

SM-AB016_LIFEmi_J_20150518135700

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.

The beauty of thanksgiving

Thanksgiving as a way of life

giving thanks

 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.

WHEN WAS THE LAST TIME YOU FELT REALLY, TRULY LONELY?

HOW DOES IT FEEL TO BE REALLY AND TRULY LONELY

Loneliness is always a devastating situation and always arises as a result of different circumstances or situations like loss of a deer family member, breakup in a relationship, being made jest off by friends in school and a lot of other cases and situations.  Looking at it critically it has always been painful and disturbing when you don’t feel connected to others.  We as humans always want friendship, love and acquaintance.

loneliness is a signal that an important basic need is not being met, such as the need to develop a circle of friends or a special relationship or the need for support. It is always very devastating and terrible when you feel the need for warmth and it’s not there, the need for understanding and support, especially when you have a special program and you want your family there for you.  The need and longing to share your feelings and thoughts with others, but nobody is there to listen to you can make you really and truly lonely. Loneliness can also arise as a result of insecurity, inferiority complex, the feeling that you are not acceptable and loved by people around you, the feeling that you have no choice but be lonely.

I am lonely

The last time I felt lonely was when i was far away from my family due to circumstances beyond my control which led to loneliness and because of this, I had to console myself by getting a dog to keep my company.  there are others with similar or different cases that warrants loneliness, like the case of a teenager who had a sweet and loving parents but lost them to accident can become very lonely or the case of a student who likes been teased or bullied all the time by her fellow students can lead to that student being really and truly lonely.

"Loneliness has followed me my whole life...

“Loneliness has followed me my whole life, everywhere. In bars, in cars, sidewalks, stores, everywhere. There’s no escape. I’m God’s lonely man.” Robert De Niro as neo-noir antihero Travis Bickle in Taxi Driver (1976). (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

NAME ONE THING BIG OR SMALL THAT YOU COULD CHANGE ABOUT YOUR LIFE TO BE HAPPIER

MENTION WHAT YOU COULD CHANGE ABOUT YOUR LIFE TO BE HAPPIER

Change Your Life

CHANGE IS A PARAMOUNT THING THAT HAPPENS TO EVERYBODY ONE WAY OR THE OTHER AND WE ALL WANT A SIGNIFICANT CHANGE THAT WE WISH COULD MAKE US HAPPIER, BUT THERE ARE DIFFERENT CIRCUMSTANCES THAT BRING ABOUT THIS CHANGE AND WE ALL HAVE  DIFFERENT OPINION AS TO WHAT KIND OF CHANGES WE INDIVIDUALLY  WANT IN OUR LIVES TO MAKE US  HAPPIER.  MONEY COULD BE A BETTER CHANGE THAT SOME LOOK FORWARD TO IN ORDER TO MAKE THEM HAPPY AND SOME JUST WANT A GOOD AND WONDERFUL RELATIONSHIP.

THERE ARE DIFFERENT THINGS WE COULD CHANGE ABOUT OUR LIVES TO MAKE US HAPPIER. TO MENTION BUT  A FEW:

  •    THE STATUS OF A RELATIONSHIP
  •    IT COULD BE HEALTH
  •    EMPLOYMENT SITUATION COULD BE A REASON FOR THIS BECAUSE EVERYBODY WANTS  TO EARN A BETTER LIVING.
  •    IF I COULD CHANGE MY LIFE OR MAKE MY OUTLOOK A LOT BETTER , MAYBE I COULD BE A LITTLE HAPPIER.
  •   A GOOD JOB WOULD CHANGE THE FACT THAT I AM UNEMPLOYED. IT WOULD MAKE IT EASIER FOR ME NOT TO GO ROUND ASKING PEOPLE MONEY FOR GAS TO GET BACK TO SCHOOL, WHICH MEANS HAPPIER LIFE FOR ME.
  •   MONEY IN MY POCKET WOULD DO A WHOLE LOT OF GOOD AND BRING ABOUT A LOT OF CHANGE FOR A HAPPIER LIFE
  •   SUCCESS IS THE ONE THING I COULD CHANGE ABOUT MY LIFE TO BE HAPPIER AND HAVE MORE FRIENDS.
  •  TRAVEL TO PLACES COULD BE A SOURCE OF BEING HAPPIER
  • GETTING MARRIED AND HAVING A FAMILY COULD BE THE CHANGE THAT WILL BRING ABOUT A HAPPIER LIFE

IF STAR TREK HAVE THOUGHT ME ANYTHING, ITS THE FACT THAT IF YOU CHANGE ONE THING IN YOUR PAST, IT COULD HAVE DISASTROUS CONSEQUENCES ON THE LIFE  AND THE WORLD AS IT IS. CAPTAIN PICARD DID THIS ONCE AND ENDED UP AS SOME SCIENCE OFFICER. BUT HAVING MOTIVATION FOR CHANGE COULD BE A WAY FOR BETTER AND MORE HAPPIER LIFE

THE BEST WAY TO CONTROL YOURSELF WHEN YOU ARE ANGRY?

HOW DO YOU CONTROL YOUR ANGER

THERE ARE DIFFERENT KIND OF SITUATION WHICH ARISE AND BRINGS ABOUT ANGER. SOMETIMES WE FIND IT DIFFICULT TO CONTROL OUR ANGER ESPECIALLY WHEN WE ARE EXTREMELY UPSET,UNHAPPY OR HAVE AN INTENSE FEELING OVER AN ISSUE. OUR LEVEL OF ANGER IS DIFFERENT FROM ONE INDIVIDUAL TO THE OTHER AND THE WAY WE INDIVIDUALLY REACT TO ANGER IS DIFFERENT FROM EACH OTHER . SOME PEOPLE GET ANGRY OVER NOTHING WHILE SOME GET ANGRY OVER A SITUATION THEY CAN CONTROL. I HAVE AN UNDERSTANDING THAT SOMETIMES ITS GOOD TO LET OUT YOUR ANGER OVER HOW YOU FEEL  AND EVENTUALLY LET IT GO. BUT THE TRUTH IS MANY PEOPLE HAVE PROBLEM MANAGING HOW THEY FEEL WHEN UPSET . MY QUESTION IS:

  • IS IT REALLY BAD TO FEEL UPSET AND  ANGRY ?
  • HOW DO I GET ANGRY WITHOUT LETTING THE OTHER PARTY FEEL BAD ?
  • HOW DO I DEAL WITH MY ANGER IN A MORE POLITE AND BETTER WAY ?

I REMEMBER A PARTICULAR INCIDENT WHEN A FRIEND CAME VISITING AND  WE WERE ALL HAVING A GOOD TIME AND CHATTING AND DURING OUR DISCUSSION WE WERE MAKING JEST OF EACH OTHER AND IT GOT TO A STAGE THAT I WAS MADE A JEST OF AND I GOT SO ANGRY THAT I FELT REALLY BAD, BUT INSTEAD OF HITTING OR FIGHTING I CONTROLLED MYSELF AND WALKED OUT OF THE HOUSE AND WENT VISITING ANOTHER FRIEND IN OTHER TO COOL OFF AND GOT MYSELF BACK IN PLACE. I DON’T CONSIDER MYSELF AN ANGRY PERSON BUT SOMETIMES I GET OUT OF CONTROL OVER A LITTLE THING AND I REACT FOOLISHLY AT THAT POINT IN TIME.  I OFTEN REGRET MY ACTIONS WHEN I BECOME CALM AFTER MY ANGER . I WISHED I HAD NOT REACTED THE WAY I DID AND I HATE MYSELF FOR IT.

THERE WAS A FRIEND WHO SHARED HIS LITTLE EXPERIENCE OVER THE WEEKEND WITH ME. HE WENT VISITING HIS BROTHER AND HIS BROTHER GOT HIM SO ANGRY THAT WHEN HE GOT BACK HOME HE FINISHED A POT OF JAM, IS THAT NOT FUNNY ? .THERE ARE DIFFERENT CASES LIKE THIS OUT THERE AND EVERYBODY REACTS DIFFERENTLY DEPENDING ON SITUATION. WHEN YOU ARE ANGRY WHAT DO YOU DO ?

  1. DO YOU GO FOR A DRIVE ?
  2. DO YOU YELL AT THE PERSON YOU ARE ANGRY WITH ?
  3. DO YOU TALK TO A FRIEND OR FAMILY MEMBER ?
  4. DO YOU PHYSICALLY HIT THE PERSON INVOLVED BECAUSE YOU WERE SO ANGRY ?
  5. DID YOU CALL THEM NAMES BECAUSE YOU WERE ANGRY ?
  6. DID YOU LEAVE THE HOUSE  OR GO TO ANOTHER ROOM  TO THINK ?
  7. DID YOU GO TO A QUIET PLACE  TO COOL OFF ?
  8. DID YOU GO TO A BAR TO DRINK BECAUSE YOU WERE ANGRY?
