If we really desire to become a better and a successful person, it lies upon in our hands. In life full of trials and hardships, we need God and hard works, enable to become successful person someday.
God said: Build a better world. "I asked, How? the world is such a big place, cold and complicated, I'm too young. There's little I can do." But God in all His wisdom said: JUST BUILD A BETTER YOU."
I’ll still remember when I was a young boy. I have a lot of great dreams for my future. But how could it be? It’s the same questioned that always lingering in my mind. I’m the product of a broken home family, grew up in the street, and stayed with different and even with the cruel person in this world! It’s good that was over! The bitter memory of my childhood!
I have learned through my life experiences as well as studies from the profiles and writings of the great wisemen that the only way to beat the odds in life is to face and take it as a challenge and continue on remaking ourselves into a better person! and also by making God as a partner in every adherrings in life because in Him nothing is impossible!
I have learned through my life experiences as well as studies from the profiles and writings of the great wisemen that the first step to makes an individual to become a better and a successful person is dare to dream.
Julie Anne Ford points out "Let nothing hold you back from exploring your wildest fantasies, wishes, and aspirations. Don't be afraid to dream big and to follow your dreams wherever they may lead you.Open your eyes to their beauty; open your mind to their magic; open your heart to their possibilities."
Julie Anne Ford further pointed out "Dare to dream, Because only by dreaming, will you ever discover who you are, what you want, and what you can do. Don't be afraid to take risks, to become involved, to make commitment. Do whatever it takes to make your dreams come true. Always believe in miracles, and always believe in you!".
I have learned through my life experiences as well as studies from the profiles and writings of the great wisemen that the second steps to makes an individual to become a better and a successful person is believe to himself.
"Believe in yourself! Believe you were made to do any task without calling for aid. Believe, without growing too scornfully proud, that you, as the greatest and least are endowed. A mind to do thinking, two hands and two eyes are all the equipment God gives to the wise.
Believe in yourself! You are divinely designed and perfectly made for the work of mankind. The truth you must cling to through danger and pain; the heights others have reached you can also attain.
Believe to the very last hour, for it is true.That what ever you will, you've been gifted to do. Believe in yourself and step out unafraid. By misgivings and doubt be not easily swayed. You've the right to succeed; the precision of skill which betokens the great you can earn if you will! The wisdom of the ages is yours if you'll read. But you've got to believe in yourself to succeed" (Winning Words of Champions, p. 103).
I have learned through my life experiences as well as studies of the profiles and writings of the great wisemen that the third steps to makes an individual to become a better and a successful person is Believe that he can do anything if he thinks he can!
Donna Fargo convinced you that " Just start somewhere. Resolve to do something.You might even write out what you want to accomplish. Then explore what you need to do to reach you goal, and start doing it, step by step. It's the same as if you were planning a trip: you get a map, make your preparations, and then start traveling the right road."
She added, "Don't get "bound up" in any problems that stand in your way. Do something every day to resolve them. Trust your instincts. Do one thing at a time. Remember... if you sow seeds of fear, doubt, panic, and procrastination, it will most likely work against you. If you keep doing the same things you're doing now, you will keep ending up in similar places to where you are now."
She further added, "Once you start making progress towards your goal,you will be magically propelled towards eventual reward. Just keep listening and taking direction from inside you. Be patient; your dreams will not come true overnight. But start now, and go with love and courage and confidence. Don't be afraid. You can do anything you believe you can. And don't forget to keep an open mind and heart to check yourself along the way. You can do it! Go for it, and good luck."
I have learned through my life experiences as well as studies of the profiles and writings of the great wisemen that the fourth steps to makes an individual to become a better and a successful person is to avoid the negative, toxic people. Avoid people who are always belittle your ability.
The Word of God clearly gave a warning about this: “Do not be misled: ‘Bad Company corrupts good character” (1 Corintthians15:33 NIV). Before during my student life, I experienced too a lot of criticism. But as a young man and historian, who are always thirsty, hunger for knowledge and wisdom, through reading the profiles of the great people of the world, I discovered, come up, and finally concluded that a statue has never been erected in honor for a critic!
My Dear readers if you will experience similar experienced of the author, please do not take heed to that group of toxic, negative people but focus on your main goal to win! Teddy Roosevelt, an American great president once says, “In the battle of life, it is not the critic who counts; nor the one who points out how the strong person stumbled, or where the doer of a deed could have done better.
The credit belongs to the person who is actually in the arena; whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; who does actually strive to do deeds; who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotion, spends oneself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement; and who at worst, if he or she fails, at least fails while daring greatly.
Far better it is to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs even though checkered by failure, than to rank with those timid spirits who neither enjoy nor suffer much because they live in the gray twilight that knows neither victory nor defeat.”
Once again, I strongly encourages you, focus in your goals to win and read and think of this carefully:
If you think you are beaten, you are.
If you think you dare not, you don’t.
If you’d like to win but think you can’t, it’s almost certain you won’t.
Life’s battles don’t always to the stronger or faster man,
But sooner or later, the man who wins is the man who thinks he can.
Calvin Coolidge argued, “Nothing in the world can take the place of persistence. Talents will not, nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not, unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Educations will not, the world is full of education derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent.”
I’ve found out that before any great accomplishment is achieved in reality, it’s believed in heart. If you need to hear the applause of the crowd, you have to begin your attack in the face of criticism, believing that the applause will come later.
I have learned through my life experiences as well as studies from the profiles and writings of the great wisemen that the fifth steps to makes an individual to become a better and a successful person is learn on how to use his time wisely.
Through my personal readings in the profiles of the great people of the world, I found out that their main secrets why they become so successful in their life because of time management skills. So therefore, I firmly encouraged you, if you’re really desire to win in the battles as well as challenges in life, learn on how to use your time wisely.
Dr Bella Angeles Abangan, my favorite Filipino author in self-improvement reminded you that “The clock of life is won but once, and no man has the power to tell just when the hands will stop; at late or early hour. Now is the only time you own. Live, love, work with a will. Place no faith in tomorrow, for the clock of life may then be still.”
I have learned through my life experiences as well as studies in the profiles and writings of the great wisemen that the sixth steps to makes an individual to become a better and a successful person is to learn as well as teach himself to value other people.
Remember the sayings readers “No man is an Island”. Enable for you to become successful in you’re adhering in life, you should learn to value other people. Andrew Carnegie, the author of the book How to Win Friends and Influenced People emphasize“It marks a big step in your development when you come to realize that other people can help you do a better job than you could do alone.” Helen Keller, the blind woman who became a great educator further added “Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much.”
The Word of God forcefully reminding us people, In the Book of Ecclesiastes 4:9-12 uttered, “Two are better than one, because they have a good reward for their labor. For if they fall, one will lift up his companion. But woe to him who is alone when he falls, for he has no one to help him up. Again, if two lie down together, they will keep warm; But how can one be warm alone? Though one may be overpowered by another, two can withstand him. And a threefold cord is not quickly broken” (NIV).
I have learned through my life experiences as well as studies of the profiles and writings of the great wisemen that the 7th steps to makes an individual to become a better and a successful person is Be True to His Heart And His Dreams Will Come True.
Debra Ruegg-Jenkins gave a wise counsel for you. She says, "Stay true to all your beliefs and goals. Stand tall. Through all life's setbacks and disappointments, your dreams will come true. When no one else is with you, and no one seems to care, just whisper to yourself, "I am the controller of my destiny. It's up to me what comes to pass, and if I keep my thoughts positive and strong, my dreams will come true."
She added, "When what seem to be impossible obstacles stand in your way, just think of all the times you got through yesterday. There is a place for you in this world. Stay on your chosen path. All the power is within you; be true to what is in your heart. Be honest within yourself; if you are, then you cannot fail. Your dreams will come true."
I have learned through my life experiences and studies through the profiles as well as writings of the great wisemen that the eight steps to makes an individual to become a better and a successful person is Never Let Go Of Hope.
Jancarl Campi reminds you that "One day you will see that it all has finally come together. What you have always wished for has finally come to be. You will look back and laugh at what has passed and you will ask yourself,"How did I get through all of that?" Just never let go of hope. Just never quit dreaming. And never let love depart from your life."
I have learned through my life experiences and studies of the profile as well as writings of the great wisemen that the ninth step to make an individual to become a better and a successful person is believe that Anything Is Possible.
Dena DiIaconi encouraged you to "Believe in Yourself, and Remember that Anything Is Possible Believe in what makes you feel good. Believe in what makes you happy. Believe in the dreams you've always wanted to come true, and give them every chance to. Life holds no promises as to what will come your way. You must search for your own ideals and work towards reaching them. Life makes no guarantees as to what you'll have. It just gives you time to make choices and to take chances and to discover whatever secrets might come your way."
she advised that, "If you are willing to take the opportunities you are given and utilize the abilities you have,you will constantly fill your life with special moments and unforgettable times. No one knows the mysteries of life or its ultimate meaning, but for those who are willing to believe in their dreams and in themselves, life is a precious gift in which anything is possible."
I have learned through my experiences and studies through the profiles and writings of the great wisemen that the tenth steps to makes an individual to become a better and a successful person is teach himself to Trust and Make God be the Center of His Life.
Solomon, a great wise man advised if your really longing to win in the battles of life, you must learn, practice, and encourage yourself to “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not your own understanding, in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make your paths straight” (Proverbs 3: 5-6 NIV). And put God in the center and everything will come together (Romans 8:28 NIV).
Starting today, if you will make God as the center of your life, God has a special promised for you. He will make you the head, not the tail. If you pay attention to the commands of the Lord your God that I give you this day and carefully follow them, you will always be at the top, never at the bottom! (Deuteronomy 28:11-13 NIV).
Finally my dear reader, John Maxwell reminds you that " The only person who can stop you from becoming what God intends you to become is you!"
Once again I encouraged you...Just BUILD A BETTER YOU and always remember this my beloved readers that the future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams!
Wish you more blessings from the Lord Jesus Christ as well as Good Luck to your life struggles!
