The two kinds of pain we experience in life and how they help you

There is a saying that “joy won’t feel so good if it wasn’t for pain.” This is true. It is with pain that we are able to show appreciation for anything in life that brings us less pain.

When we talk about pain, I will like to know your perception of this experience. Nobody likes to feel pain because there is always this part of our brain that releases hormones that makes us feel bad anytime we experience pain.

These signs we get are messages telling us that we have to do something to save ourselves from continuously experiencing these unpleasant feeling.

There are two kinds of pain:

Pain that hurts: This is the kind pain we experience in our daily lives. Sometimes we don’t see them coming; it just happens and it hurts then you react immediately to stop the immediate effect.

Pain that changes you: This is the kind of pain that has an effect so strong in us that we decide to do something and ensure that we never feel similar pain ever again.

Both types of pain are significant in our everyday lives and how we handle them can either make or mar us. What is important is that we approach these types of pain from a positive angle and see them as a source of lesson to learn so that we can use the feeling and experience to better our lives. This way we grow.

But when you view pain from the negative angle, all you can ever do is live your life in fear and this does not help you experience new opportunities in life.

Learn to use pain to your advantage and you will see how your life will take a new turn.

What it means for someone to be dramatic or a drama queen

What it means for someone to be dramatic or a drama queen

People that are dramatic are just like attention seekers. They love to blow things out of proportion. When they talk about something that is mildly bad, they make it sound like it was the worst thing that has ever happened. When they also talk about something good, they make it sound better.

 

People that are dramatic loves to have people surround them and listen to them. When people are not focusing on them, they feel bad or awkward and do whatever they can to attract people’s attention. Even if it means hurting themselves so that people can pity them.

Drama queen over emotions so that they can get as much attention as they can; responding to situations in an oversensitive way. To them, every situation is like the craziest or the greatest thing in the world.

When you meet someone that is oversensitive about issues, do not rush to judgment because attitudes like these are often resultant effect of childhood experiences. Some of them are show-offs and love to get people to appreciate them. maybe because they did not get as much attention from their parents and are seeking for ways to make up for those lost childhood moments.

People like this should not arouse your anger; rather they need your understanding and love. Because getting you to notice them means a lot to them.

You have to create space for growth in your life

You have to create space for growth in your life

You have to create space for growth in your life

Why some people refuse to grow and advance in life is because they are not willing to make space for development in their lives. And one of the reason why these development do not come is because people have wrong perception of what it takes to succeed and people are resistance to change.

Another reason why people do not grow is that there are afraid of failure.  Because they are scared of failing, they don’t attempt at all. When you don’t want to fail, how then can you learn?

It is in your failures that you can know how not to make similar mistakes in the future. It is in failing that you are able to expand your horizon and see life from a broader point of view.

Your experiences in life are what guide you to a better life in future. But when you refuse to make efforts to grow and build yourself, then you see yourself being stagnant in life.

All you do is complain about how life has been unfair to you. And my question to you is, what are you doing about it?

Everything negative feedback you get in life is a message to you to take action. Until you do something about your current situation, you are most likely to live a mediocre and stagnant life.

Talking about making space in your life to grow, here is a snippet from tinybuddha.com to help clarify my message to you.

Growth requires space—actual physical space, as well as space in your schedule.

“I tend to see two reasons people don’t create this space:”

  • They think it’s selfish. They have kids, work, chores, and obligations. It would be selfish to put those off just for themselves.
  • Or they don’t think it’s possible. They have kids, work, chores, and obligations. Who has time or energy to undertake anything else?

“While both of those are really symptoms of not taking it seriously, there is more to it.”

“If you think it’s selfish to create time for you—to chase a dream, to process an emotion, to rest and reconnect—you’re not seeing one very important fact:”

“You can’t give to others what you don’t have, and you don’t have what you don’t take the time to give to yourself.”

“Growth requires self-compassion, patience, and generosity. If you ignore it, it will nag you, deplete you, and bury you in stress.”

“But when you give yourself the things you need, you soon begin to overflow those same things—the compassion, patience, and generosity – back into your world.”

“When your soul is filled up to overflowing, the feeling of impossibility takes care of itself.”

“Make the things that matter—such as self-care, compassion, and authenticity—priorities, and you’ll find you have the time and energy to create the life you visualize.”

 

Not Taking Your Instincts Seriously Is Bad For You

Not Taking Your Instincts Seriously Is Bad For You

Not Taking Your Instincts Seriously Is Bad For You

People underrate the power of their instinct. Your instinct is like a window into your subconscious. When you are not listening to it, then you are causing yourself to be worried without you knowing why.

When you hear someone saying that he does not know why he is sad, try to ask that person whether there is something he is suppose to do or be doing that he is not. We all get signs everyday from our suubconsciuos and when you don’t take action, your subconscious continues to border you till you do it.

This is another way of understanding your instincts. When something is not right, your instincts tell you it is not and most times we feel it deep in our stomach. It is about listening to the voice within that matters because when you don’t, it is only a matter of time before you see the resultant effect.

Our instincts are there to guide us. They are there as our shield and security because humans are naturally prone to self destruction. It is your instinct and subconscious that act as a barrier to situations that can cause us harm; these situations often what we bring upon ourselves either by our actions or things we are supposed to do and did not do.

I came upon this when I read about mistakes people make that hold them back in life in tinybuddha.com

Here are the words that I culled from their site. You should read it:

“Have you ever said “I’m fine” when inside you were hurt or afraid? Or said “It’s not a big deal” when, in fact, it was consuming your every waking thought (and likely your dreams)?

Or maybe you even rolled your eyes at yourself; told yourself that you were overreacting, or that a comment, dream, or feeling didn’t matter.

Yeah, don’t do that.

It—whatever “it” is for you—does matter. It matters that you have a dream to start a business. It matters that you want more than what everyone else is settling for. It matters that you are upset or unsettled or craving expansion in your life.

It matters because those things are signs that you are not on the right track, signs that something is out there calling your name, signs that you’re ready to discover and devour it.

And those signs should always be taken seriously. Listen to where your inner voice. It’s there for a reason.”

Not believing in yourself can hold you back in life

Not believing in yourself can hold you back in life

I was reading an article that writes on belies that hold people back in life and I discovered that one of them is not believing in yourself. You can always take a horse to the river, but you cannot force the horse to drink. This is always the fate of many people. Opportunities are around them, some are blind to this while some are very aware of this.

Many people that are aware of the opportunities around them refuse to make move to take advantage of those opportunity. It is not because they cannot, but because they don’t believe they can win if they attempt.

Some people don’t just see themselves doing something special. They believe that it is for certain people who are built in a way. You don’t see yourself as special so you don’t think you deserve something special in life.

You see people succeed and you think that it was easy for them because they have the brains or are born with the talent. This is not always the case. Some of them have worked hard over the years to get to where they are now. All you have to do is believe in yourself and know that if you start now, you can get there someday.

Don’t expect to be something special all of a sudden, be prepared to fail and try again until you become perfect with it. then people will look at you and think that you are special or talented, they don’t know that it is as a result of hard work.

To help drive my message home, you should read a snippet from the article written by marcandangel blog. Learn from them and improve your life.

Just because someone else can, doesn’t mean you can, right?  Because you’re not good enough, or you’ve missed your chance, etc.  You look for reasons they can do it but you can’t – maybe he’s an internet entrepreneur or freelance writer because he has no kids.  Maybe she’s way fitter than I am, so she can run a marathon.  Maybe she doesn’t have all the work and family obligations I have, or has a supportive spouse, or doesn’t have bad knees.

OK, fine, it’s easy to find excuses: but look at all the other people who also have considerable obstacles and have done it anyway.  Angel and I have a family, and have dealt with significant loss in our lives, and still managed to succeed on many fronts.  And just as we’ve turned things around for ourselves, we know hundreds of other people who’ve done the same.  Through a decade of life coaching, we’ve witnessed people reinventing themselves at all ages – 48-year olds starting families, 57-year-olds graduating from college for the first time, 71-year-olds starting successful businesses, and so forth.  And stories abound of people with disabilities or illnesses who overcame their obstacles to achieve great things.

Your obstacles can be overcome!

You don’t need your family and friends to approve your goals

setting goals

You don’t need your family and friends to approve your goals

This is the mistake many people make in life, believing that people around them needs to give them a go ahead before they embark on a journey. If you have this type of mentality, then you might never do anything in your life or achieve anything special.

People around you will always have different views of your opinion and plans. It all depends on how positive the people around you are but if you have surrounded yourself with negative people then you will find yourself in trouble.

Some of your family and friends will support you while some will discourage you, telling you why your idea is a bad one and reminding you of how many people failed attempting what you are about to do.

If you are planning something and hoping to get 100% approval from family and friends before you do it then you are in for a long run. All you have to do is believe in yourself and your ability to do something great. You can also go far by surrounding yourself with positive people.

I came about this topic when I was reading an article in marcandangel blog. Here are the words that inspired me:

“Most of us are not raised to actively seek our calling.  We may not even know that we have one.  As kids, we are seldom told we have a place in life that is uniquely ours alone.  Instead, we are encouraged to believe that our life should somehow fulfill the expectations of others – that we should find our happiness exactly as they have found theirs.

Rather than being taught to ask ourselves who we are, we are trained to ask others for permission.  We are, in effect, schooled to live other people’s versions of our lives.  Every day is designed and developed as told to us by someone else.  And then one day when we break free to survey our dreams, seeking to fulfill ourselves, we see that most of our dreams have gone unfulfilled because we believed, and those around us believed, that what we wanted for ourselves was somehow beyond our reach.

It’s time to unlearn these lies and make changes.  It takes courage to grow wiser and become who you really are.  And today is the first day of the rest of your life.”

Whoever Thinks Leadership Is Easy Must Be Mistaken

Whoever Thinks Leadership Is Easy Must Be Mistaken

I first got a taste of what it is like to be a leader in my first year in college. I contested for the post of the departmental representative and lost. But the winner and my opponent saw how zealous I was with winning the post and since he did not have such force and power to rule, he approached me to be his deputy.

I wanted to serve even if it means being a deputy – at least I have the opportunity to make my presence felt in my department and school as a whole.

Cutting the long story short, I did make my presence felt even up till I graduated from college.

That aside; in my five years in college and being a top leading figure in school, I came to understand that humans are one of the hardest creatures to lead and organize. They are tougher to lead than the regular animals you know.

Animals will always adjust to whatever settings humans have for them, but to get a human like you to do what you say, you will have to overcome their will power by giving them a thousand and one reasons to abandon their will willingly and do yours. This is where the job is and if you think that it is easy, then you are mistaken.

Getting a person to follow you without question is something that is almost impossible in this present time unless you are the leader of North Korea. Even at that, I don’t think that all his country men are happy with him forcing his will on them.

Leadership is an educational course on its own and be sure to enroll before taking on any post as a leader. There are lots of leadership seminars out there but attending them does not mean that you can still succeed as a leader.

One fact about leadership is that it has a lot to do with having a strong personality and this is not what many people have. You have to develop a strong mind and a strong will before you can be able to stand on your ground and do what it takes to move the people you are leading forward

There are so many reasons why you will need a strong mind if you are to become a good leader but here are three important ones:

The people you lead might not understand your mission: Being a leader means that you have certain goals you intend to achieve with your group and because some paths to success are not always easy, the people you lead might object to your system of leadership.

This can happen when you a type of leader that does not carry his subjects along with his plans. This way they don’t understand him even when he has good plans for them.

Many leaders try to carry their subjects along but because his goals do not tally with the immediate wants of the people he is leading, there might be conflict of interests.

This is why you need to have a strong mind so that you can be able to do what you must to save your people and bring them into the light. Even if you enter their bad book at the moment, history is bound to vindicate you.

You opponents might want to pull your government down: There is nothing that frustrates any government or leadership than a strong opposing party. This becomes so possible when they are fully integrated into the system you lead.

It is like having a leech stick to your body without being able to pull it out because they are already part of you.

Every leader experiences something like this and to think of it, it is what makes up a good democracy. So that leaders will always be on their toes because their opponents are watching them.

But if you are to be a leader, then you must be ready to deal with opponents because no matter how honest and promising your plans are for the people you lead, you opponents will surely pick a hole in them or go to the extent of frustrating your government.

This is another reason why you will need a strong mind, coupled with wisdom so that you can know how you will handle them. If you don’t have a strong mind, then your opponents will run you to the ground and make you seem like an ineffective leader.

And You might be unsure of the path you are about to take: The last one is about you believing in your ideas for the people you lead and having the boldness to dare and take action.

Many leaders have plans and aspirations for the people they lead, but it is not many of them that have what it takes to carry out those plans and bring those aspirations to reality.

You need a strong mind to be able to do this or you will become one of the worst leaders in your time.

Conclusion

It not always about going to leadership seminars and reading books on how to be a leader, it is about getting involved in the system and see practically how things like these are done.

When you really look at it, you will see that it all boils down to having a strong mind, being wise, diplomatic and charismatic if you are become an effective leader. Without these factors, I don’t think you will have much to offer as a leader in any level of government.

The Rise Of Islamic Militants And The End Of The World

Islamist militants

The Rise Of Islamic Militants And The End Of The World

Right from the time of Osama Bin Laden up till this time, the world itself and the fight against terrorism has never remained the same.

His action against the United States was like an eye opener to many around the world to the possibility of hurting the world most protected country. People that had been brewing violence in themselves saw this act as an eye opener and a license to Wreck similar havoc to the world.

United States might not be hit with a similar attack next time and because it is difficult to repeat it, these militant decided to start from their homes – hoping that (their god willing), they would conquer their homes and surrounding countries then make the United States their final destination.

It is believed that the total conversion of the United Stated to Islam marks the victory for the conquest to convert the rest of the world to Islam.

The United States is always on their toes when it comes to matters like this. This is why they are the only country leading the battle against curtailing the excesses of these Militants.

I want to hail them and encourage them to continue in their quest because God is with them. This does not mean that I support the United States in all their policies, but I believe that God placed them on top for this reason.

If not for them, the war against Christians and other faith by these extremists would have been half way completed.

The scary part of these Islamists is that because they feel they are doing the work of God, they are willing to lay down their lives. The lack of the fear of death is what makes this battle a tough one to deal with.

Regular soldiers will always fight, run when the enemy is advancing because he who fights and run lives to fight again. But for these Islamic militant, it is in death that you are crowned a hero. They attack their target with so much anticipation for death as it will give them so much joy to die in service to Allah.

I see Islam as a religion of peace and peaceful Islamic clerics will always testify to this. Where these Islamists are getting their ideas from I don’t know.

Other powers that be in world politics are so busy fighting over territories and Islands, ignoring the potential threat these people pose by their championing for a caliphate around the world.

I think it is by the time they had converted half the world and their countries become next target that they would then begin to see the real picture.

Let us take a look at the issue of Ebola and its take on Africa.

Whenever you listen to the news you hear the United Nation talking about poverty in Africa and what they intend to do about it. It was all about talk and responses to these issues was slow.

The rest of the world ignored Africa because they felt it was not their immediate concern. Poverty was high, so was diseases and outbreaks. Then came Ebola.

People died and before the vaccine that worked came out, thousands were gone. The western countries did not respond until their citizens began contracting that same deadly disease and dying of it. This was the time they now opened their purses and brought out their money to prevent the spread of the Ebola virus because it was obvious that if it was not stopped in Africa, there is no amount of preventive measures put on by them that would prevent their citizens from contracting the disease.

Take a look at the picture. First they ignore Africa and when Africa was hit hard, it overflowed into their countries. The real reason why Ebola spread that fast was nothing because of poverty – a topic the world has ignored for a long time.

Now let us come to the issue of Islamic militancy in Africa. I will say that it is still at its tender age because African leaders are doing their best to combat this menace. History is repeating itself as once again the rest of the continents are ignoring this issue.

The battle has spread and Africa and the Middle East are the primary targets. Should Islamist prevail in Africa, there is no preventive measure put up by the rest of the world that would prevent them from being hit.

Underrating Africa and its influence on the peace the world enjoy is very dangerous. Though it seems like they are not contributing actively to the war against terror but Africa is a strategic position and a sensitive nerve. If it is hit, the world is bound to feel it.

My advice to world leaders is that they should participate actively to the battle against terrorism in Africa now that it is still tender and manageable. I might not be making much sense now but I know I would should my predictions come to pass – though I do not pray so.

The battle has been ignored for so long and the United States were the ones crying out before now while the rest of the world ignored them. Now it has grown to the stage of younger generations being inspired by the messages these militant preach thereby joining them in their battle in Syria and the rest of Iraq.

Though I think that it is now getting the attention it deserves but it is still not enough because the battle against poverty, hunger and terrorism should be the first agenda of the world and United Nations before any other topic.

The battle in the Middle East is just a distraction; Africa is the real deal and the main point for the expansion of the caliphate. If the world is blind to this, then it is only a pity. Since the violence wrecked by Boko Haram in Nigeria and Al-Shabab in Kenya is not enough a signal for them to take definite action to wipe out these cancers now that it has not spread, I don’t know what else will wake them up.

I think I will stop here for now.

PEACE!!!!

Seun KutI Expresses Gratitude To Tinubu For Bringing Change to Nigeria

Seun-Kuti2

Seun Anikulapo Kuti has expressed his gratitude to Bola Ahmed Tinubu, the party leader for APC, for bringing change and ushering in a new era in the history of Nigerian politics and government.

According to his tweet on April 2, 2015 he wrote, “I wan thank Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu for bringing dis change, Aluta Continua“.

This is coming as a surprise as it is well known that Seun and Buhari has a long rocky history because the general imprisoned his father for five years during his military regime in 1984.

Thanking Tinubu I know does not mean that he has officially congratulated Buhari on his victory.

Jerry Rawlings Sends Out Kudos To Gen. Buhari of Nigeria On Election Victory

Jerry Rawlings

The former Ghanian President Jerry Rawlings has congratulated the former Nigerian Military dictator now Nigeria’s president-elect General Muhammadu Buhari on his victory.

Muhammadu Buhari defeated the incumbent president of Nigeria President Goodluck Jonathan on what happens to be an historic event in the democracy of Nigeria where a sitting president is losing a re-run for a second term in office.

According to his statement Jerry Rawlings called Buhari “a man whose integrity is extremely high”

In quote below is his statement:

“Nigerians have taken the lead in the rejection of corruption.”

“The election result is a manifestation of the people’s resolve to confront corruption, dishonesty and exploitation. This is a clear message to the new leadership. A bold step has been taken towards a new Nigeria and the incoming leader cannot be unaware of what is expected of him.

“Nigerians did not vote for just anyone. They voted for a man whose integrity is extremely high. Nigeria is tired of corruption and the choice of this leader is a clear indication of where she wants to go. I hope General Buhari will put together a team whose understanding of the power of the people recognizes and respects the will of the people.

“General Buhari owes it to his people and to Black Africans, the restoration of our pride and the black man’s dignity.

“The image of President Jonathan, a Nigerian Head of State climbing up the stairs to go and complain about Boko Haram to a French President is an image I hope I will not see again.”
