5 Tips to Keep Your Chin Up

5 tips to keep your chin up

Don’t you find the infographic above colorful and attractive? Well, as it is self-explanatory, I shall not delve deeper into the contents. The titles are as below:

1. Do something impulsive
2. Have rituals
3. Exercise at least 10 minutes a day
4. Take Breaks – add some novelties in your daily routine.
5. Learn something new – this is so pertinent now especially in the new technology age where it keeps changing and newer programs and apps come out very fast.

If you don’t change, you will be left behind and need to keep up with the new in-thing. People progress because they are able to innovate or learn new kinds of stuff and features of applications daily. I also need to remind myself not to be too complacent or lazy; because it is human nature to take things easy.

A nugget of wisdom from Instagram that I recall is this: Don’t sleep like you are rich, but work like you are broke! And follow the example of the ant – always hunting for food and store it up during summer for winter. Else the grasshopper that sings all day will go hungry during winter.

For more details, just read through the infographic above that is carefully curated for your reading pleasure.

The God of More-than-Enough

The God of more than enough

For he and all who were with him were astonished at the catch of fish which they had taken;
Luke 5:9

THE GOD OF MORE-THAN-ENOUGH

As a young Christian, I grew up hearing preachers say that God only supplies our needs, not our wants. Yet, in the Bible, God clearly shows us that He wants to meet not just our needs, but also our wants.

For example, the famous “shepherd psalm” begins with “The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want” (Psalm 23:1). Another psalm says, “Oh, fear the Lord, you His saints! There is no want to those who fear Him. The young lions lack and suffer hunger; but those who seek the Lord shall not lack any good thing” (Psalm 34:9–10).

One of the names of our God is Jehovah Jireh, which means “the all-providing One.” He provides more than enough. The God of more-than-enough came in the flesh and walked among His people. And as He walked by the Sea of Galilee, He did not give His disciples small blessings. That is why He said to Peter, “Launch out into the deep and let down your nets [plural] for a catch” (Luke 5:4), and not “let down your net [singular].” And what a catch it turned out to be—a boat-sinking, net-breaking catch! It was such a big and unexpected blessing that Peter and all who were with him were “astonished at the catch of fish which they had taken.”

Beloved, see God’s heart for you today. He wants to prosper you. Don’t settle for anything less, thinking that He only supplies your needs and not your wants. If you need a job, know that He wants you to pray not just for a job, but for a position. When you have a position, you have influence and you are able to impact lives. Maybe what you need is a pay increment. Then, pray not just for that, but also to be in a position to give increments!

You may start out poor when you follow God. But you cannot remain in lack when you follow the God of more-than-enough. In fact, like Peter, you too will be astonished that God supplies more than what you need and beyond what you have asked!

Taste and See that the Lord is Good

In the northern hemisphere, winter is just around the corner; and so is Christmas! The season of love and giving is coming. Jesus came that all may have life and have it more abundantly. The resurrection power of Jesus redeemed mankind from the curse of Adam’s fall. For those parents with small kids, teach them in the way they should go (The Biblical way) so that when they are old, they will not depart from it. When the hurricanes and winds blow (like problems and illnesses), they will stand firm on solid ground and not be blown away like a house of straws!

Now Faith is the confidence in what we hope for

My favorite verse as a student is this: Philippians 4:13 – I can do All things through Christ who strengthens me..

Encourage your children to explore the New Testament which is after the birth of Jesus Christ as compared to the Old Testament which is of Moses Law, The 10 Commandments, etc. But it is good to know some history before we can appreciate the New Testament of unmerited favor, love and divine help, especially in times of need.

THE MINDSET OF HIGH ACHIEVERS – Best Motivational Video for Success in Life & Study

The above is a motivational Youtube video specially curated for you on success. Do what the 99% people are not willing to do. Be the 1% that are willing to suffer and hustle daily for success. Be disciplined and make it a habit. What comes to mind becomes your character, what becomes your character becomes a habit and this will propel you to further success one after another. You need to sacrifice playtime with friends and drinking buddies and do it all alone at times. Yes, it is very lonely at the top! But keep hustling and working hard at your goals and be patient. In time to come, you will reap the success that you have targetted for yourself.

This is what makes the mindset of high achievers different from the mediocre ones. Whether you are a programmer, lawyer or secretary, just do your best and put in some effort to see results. I have personally experienced medical doctors who are sub-par and not up to the standard that they are trained to be. Some go through the shortcut methods of success, and in the end, cheat on himself or herself by getting other people to do the hard work for them instead of self-learn it and go through the long, laborious ways of self-discovery and learning. To succeed in life, there are NO shortcuts. Time and effort are needed and lots of patience too.

Hence, with this in mind, it is hoped that you will glean something out of this blog and visit regularly for updates on motivation, pets, success, finance, Christian scriptures, etc. Enjoy the video above and you can skip the adverts if you like.

6 Blogging Skills You Can Put On Your Resume

6 Blogging Skills you can Put on your Resume

1. Writing

When you blog, you are a writer. Writing is an essential skill that you must have to maintain a blog. Blogging means writing, because what blog article is complete without some words of wisdom on the topic of choice you are discussing? Therefore, the written word is a priority in blogging. Just about any profession, you get into has some form of required writing. So I’m thankful for blogging and writing!

2. Photography

When I first started blogging 6+ years ago, I admit my photography skills were lacking. But wow, how that changed quickly enough. I mean if you look at my early blog articles, I am embarrassed by many of the photos I thought were passable. These days, I can proudly say that my photography has greatly improved. So much so that I can not only operate a DSLR camera, but I can also take some truly gorgeous photos when needed. So, photography is a skill that many bloggers (myself included) can most certainly use on a resume.

3. Web Design

When you blog, you most likely own or run a website. Let’s face it – most businesses now have their own websites. So being able to say that you know how to manage a website is an essential skill to list on a resume.

4. Photoshop

Taking photos is key, as I mentioned. Being able to edit them in Photoshop is also a wonderful skill to have under your belt. As a blogger, many of us know how to use Photoshop for photo editing and more. Photoshop happens to be a skill many current employers look for when they make hiring decisions. So, once again listing this on a resume is a huge bonus.

5. Social Media/Marketing

As bloggers, we have to put ourselves out there daily. What better way than to share socially on the likes of Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest or Instagram. Knowing these social media outlets, as well as how to use them for marketing purposes, is also another wonderful skill to have on your resume. Thankfully blogging does help with this one, too.

6. Coding/HTML

This one may not be for all bloggers. However, many of us bloggers do have some knowledge of coding and HTML. Trust me that in this technological business world, possessing even low-level coding and HTML essentials is a great skill to have on your resume.

There you have it with 6 blogging skills that you can most definitely use on a resume for employment!

The 5 Easiest Ways to Get Better Grades

What are the easiest ways for adult students to get excellent grades? Could you be spending a lot of time trying to find the latest silver bullet to boost your grades while there is a straightforward concept that already exists? Here are five simple tips that adult students can use to perform well in school.

1. Never skip breakfast

Usually described as the most crucial meal of the day, eating breakfast has positive effects such as enhanced memory and attention. Therefore, regardless of how busy your day is, make sure you take breakfast so that you remain rejuvenated throughout the day.

2. Believe you can learn the material

Does believing you can understand the material result in better grades? Research has shown that students who have a positive outlook towards the course are likely to perform better than those who don’t believe. With everything that’s going on, you are likely to feel overwhelmed and discouraged. The best way of handling this is to leave all your family and work worries out of the classroom.

3. Do not use your phone while in class

When you use your phone in the classroom, you might have divided attention. This might make it difficult for you to concentrate in the classroom. Also, you might receive a call that something is not right either at home or at work. Such a message will keep you distracted.

4. Use out of school time productively

As an adult student, you may not have much of this. However little time you have to spare when you aren’t working or caring for your family, use it well. Remember that personal study is a major ingredient of getting good grades.

5. Have a sense of purpose

Students who remind themselves why they are in school are likely to do better than those who don’t have a purpose. From the onset, set goals and plan on how to attain them. Working towards your goals will make studying interesting.

Have Faith in Yourself – Richard Branson

Like the Nike Tagline, “Just Do It!”

Believe it can be done. Have goals and prepare well. Also help each other out. The stronger should help the weaker and likewise the smarter should help the slower ones. It is a life of give and take. You cannot hoard knowledge to yourself without sharing to others and help them up. That is why schools and colleges have professors and supervisors to guide the students to greater heights of success and knowledge.

Have Fun

Have fun while working hard and money will come to you. Don’t waste time and procrastinate. Grab every opportunity that comes your way. Also, have a positive outlook on life. And if it becomes a drudgery, move on. Don’t dwell on something that you are struggling with and instead, work on your strengths. For instance, if programming is something that is hard to master, then dwell on writing articles and blogging which may be easier to make money online.

Be Bold

Calculate the risks and take them. More importantly, believe in yourself. Just like the scriptures, “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.” – Philippians 4:13. Chase your dreams and goals. Have no regrets of past failures, neither worry about the future. Just live in the present and do your utmost best. Be bold and keep your word and promises. Nobody wants to deal with dishonest persons.

Challenge Yourself

Aim high and try new things. Always try and challenge yourself. Be the best that you can be and don’t compare with others. There are others who are better off while there are others who are worse off than you.

Stand on Your Own Feet

Rely on yourself and God to help you out. Don’t be too dependent on others, for they may disappoint you or give bad advice. Chase your dreams, but live in the real world. And work together. Two heads are better than one.

Live the Moment

Enjoy life and live it to the full. Enjoy the moment while reflecting on your life. Make every second count and don’t have regrets. Also, don’t sleep too much for those who refuse to life a finger, may come to poverty. Make hay while the sun shines and in your best years, work hard before your retirement in your golden years.

Value Family and Friends

Life is about relationships. No one is a island. Hence we need to value family and friends while they are still here. Be loyal. Face problems head on. Money is for making things happen. Pick the right people in your inner circle and reward talent.

Have Respect

Be polite and respectful. Do the right thing. Keep your good name and be fair in all your dealings. Hence the above expound on the info graphic of having faith in yourself by Richard Branson, the founder of Virgin airlines.
