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

How To Improve yourself

good

Naturally 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 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.

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.

HOW MANY LANGUAGES CAN YOU SPEAK? DO YOU WISH THAT NUMBER WERE HIGHER?

HOW I WISH I CAN SPEAK MORE LANGUAGES

LANGUAGE IS A NECESSARY MEANS OF COMMUNICATION FOR US ALL AND WITHOUT IT, LIFE IS TERRIBLE AND BORING.   LANGUAGE IS AN IMPORTANT ASPECT OF A MANS LIFE AND IT TAKES A LOT OF EFFORT TO KNOW MORE THAN ONE LANGUAGE.  I HAD THE OPPORTUNITY TO LEARN A LOT OF LANGUAGES, BUT I HAVE THE PRIVILEGE OF SPEAKING FOUR LANGUAGES CONVENIENTLY. WHEN I WAS YOUNGER, I DID NOT REALIZE HOW IMPORTANT IT WAS TO HAVE A KNOWLEDGE OF OTHER LANGUAGES, BUT I LATTER REALIZED HOW IMPORTANT IT IS, IF THE OPPORTUNITY TO LEARN COMES, BECAUSE YOU NEVER KNOW, YOU MIGHT TRAVEL TO A PLACE WHERE YOU WILL NOT LOOK LIKE A STRANGER BUT JOIN THEM WITH  SPEAKING AND UNDERSTANDING THERE LANGUAGE.  I HAVE REALIZED THE IMPORTANCE OF SPEAKING A LOT OF LANGUAGES AND IT HELPS YOU TO FIT IN WHEREVER YOU GO.

WHEN I WAS IN HIGH SCHOOL, I STUDIED FRENCH FOR THREE YEARS BUT I THOUGHT I WOULDN’T NEED IT BUT WHILE I WAS GROWING UP AND TRAVELING, I REALIZED NO LANGUAGE IS A WASTE, ONE WAY OR THE OTHER ALONG THE WAY, YOU WILL PICK IT UP AND TALKING ABOUT LANGUAGES THERE ARE OTHER KINDS OF LANGUAGE APART FROM THE REGULAR VERBAL LANGUAGE AND THEY ARE ALSO IMPORTANT IN OUR LIVES.  THEY ARE WORTH CONSIDERATION LIKE THE BODY LANGUAGE WHICH IS COMMON WITH WOMEN, CREATIVE LANGUAGE WHICH HELPS IN CREATIVITY IRRESPECTIVE OF WHAT YOU DO, LOVE LANGUAGE WHICH HELPS COUPLES AND FAMILIES TO SURVIVE WITH LOVE, MUSICAL LANGUAGE WHICH IS THE LANGUAGE OF THE WORLD FOR RELAXATION, CONCENTRATION AND PEACE OF MIND, SIGN LANGUAGE WHICH HELP TO COMMUNICATE WITH THE DISABLED AND ALL THIS LANGUAGES ARE INFINITE.

THE PIECE OF MIND

                THE UNDERSTANDING THAT BRINGS PIECE

This morning I was enjoying breakfast with a dear friend . Our time was interrupted by a phone call and a message that my wife’s mother had suffered a stroke and was in the hospital. I hurriedly made my way to the hospital to be at her side with other family members. She is doing well and even at this writing, the doctors are doing an MRI assessment on her condition, I had the privilege to look into her eyes and agree with her in faith for healing and recovery.  We believed for the peace that passes understanding to come over her.

This event troubled my heart. But, it also stirred me to greater faith . We carry on through life’s challenges with little thought for the presence of peace. “And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding,Often, I have settled for the peace that matches my level of understanding, or that comes close to answering my “Why”. I tend to look for the cause, for the reason for the pain; rationalizing for the solution; hoping for the end of this suffering.

Peace!

I value that understanding comes from knowledge, Yet  our understanding falls short. Many times the cause has nothing to do with you or what you have done or could do. There are times when there is no earthly reason for the pain. It just is.  If you find yourself dealing with your life’s challenges, and peace seems to be missing, don’t settle, Don’t accept or seek peace through logical explainable reasoning. That’s not peace at all. Rather  be non-anxious, be thankful and stay connected!

This is the understanding that brings peace!
