This line of words depicts a lot of meaning… to some it is spiritual, to others it is physical, but to this article, it is mental, inner and outward communication.
Every day of our lives, whether we are asleep or awake, millions of thoughts flow in and out of our minds. Some are hurting and revengeful while others are pleasurable and memorable to us, but In the midst of these thoughts lies a connection to our lifestyle, and destiny.
Everyone wants to succeed, everyone wants to get to the place he or she has envisioned for him or herself, but surprisingly few are dogged enough to attain the height they have envisioned as innocent kids, few deviate a little, then retrace their steps back in order to get to where they want to end up in life, few stop because they stopped receiving encouragement from others, they stopped just because the people that believed in them stopped believing in their pursuit, while others stopped pursuing their dreams and deviate to other things in life.
Those that stopped pursuing might realize their mistakes later on in life, so in this category, some never mind going back while others might decide to give up on themselves, on their journey, by telling themselves that they are too old to repatriate to their path, so they enforce their lives on their children pushing them to live their dreams for them…this narration explains why some persons are still suffering in life, that is because they are trying to maintain the shoes that their fathers or mothers were not able to wear during their youthful days, thereby neglecting their own path.
There are a lot of mental and inner giants that are responsible for whatever it is that we are going through in our life’s journey and these can either hinder or help us in stepping so high or nosedive in life.
Giant can be an obstacle and it can also be an extraordinary strength or power, bodily or intellectually.
Giant 1… Your Believe System:
Interestingly, so many things revolve around what you believe. A child believes everything that the parents tell him or her hook line and sinker, he never for once doubt that his parents abilities, he or she believes that the parents can do anything for him or her… so each opportunity he gets to brag about his parents in front of his little peers, he does that with a whole lot of confidence.
I used how a child believes to illustrate how believing works, so as to refresh our minds how we never stopped believing our parents, even when they failed to fulfill that which they have promised us… so why then is it difficult to keep believing yourself even when you fail yourself, even when you make all series of mistake.
Climbing the ladder of success implies that you believe in your existence, and believe in your journey. Your confidence is built based on the information you have hovering around you, likewise, your carriage is supported by your confidence.
What confidence do you have in yourself? Is true you need people to survive, you need their encouragement, their advice, you need them in your life to pull through, but you need you first. No one believes for you what you need to believe for yourself.
People gravitate towards confident people. In other words, you speak confidently about what you believe. Your believe system is in line with your behavior. Just like the saying goes, you cannot give what you don’t have.
Believe is very tricky. It works hand in glove with your perception of life. No matter how old you get up in life, parents will always see you as their baby boy or baby girl… but, how do you view yourself? Will you continue seeing yourself as a baby or as the next president of a nation, the next astronaut, the world class speaker etc.?…
Believe works hand in glove with how you see yourself, how you perceive your environment, your abilities… so firstly, you have to have clear understanding about you, clear understanding that life does not give you finished product, life doesn’t give you orange juice, life gives you oranges so you decide whether to make orange juice from life or not, you must understand that everything life gives to you, is an opportunity for you to improve on yourself, in order to grow yourself.
As a runner, how do you feel whenever you get to the finished line of a race? As a business person, how do you feel each time you experience great sales? How will you feel after you have had a work done in the way you have always wanted it to be down… You believe system, has a lot to do with your confidence building
So many factors contribute to us not believing in ourselves…mistakes you have made in life, your past failures, unrecognized opportunity, harsh upbringing etc, but no matter what it is, you have the will to choose…choose to keep on lamenting and be stuck in life, or to let the past go and move on, you have to choose to either conquer or be conquered…what is it going to be…YOUR CHOICE
When life kicks hard on you, what you believe helps you kick back and be firm
The giant you need to conquer is UNBELIEVE IN SELF and the giant to embrace SELF BELIEVE
Giant 2… focus
Your Focus is aligned when you understand where you are heading to…but sometimes, you can also focus on the wrong things which is why it’s advisable to first understand your vision. When you understand your vision, you will know what not to focus on. Vision controls what you think, the friends you keep, the books you read, the food you eat. Vision chooses how you invest your money, what you invest your time on, what and who you play with…most importantly, vision controls what you focus on..
At times, we focus on things that we see others succeed in, things we admire and wish for ourselves, or trending stuff just not to be mocked…What you focus on is what you build on and what you fuel. Whatever you make important is what you focus on, whatever you see as a challenge is what you focus on, whatever you allow to fill up your mind is what you focus on.
The question is: What do you see as important to you and your journey in life? Will you focus on them or be distracted on stuff that matters less? Are you focused on things simply because that is what everyone around you sees and focuses on?
The trick to focusing on what matters to you is simply by thinking on what matters to you. Those thoughts draw your focus towards them and gradually they begin to manifest.
The giant you need to conquer is focusing on activities that do not matter to your existence, and the giant you need to embrace is FOCUSING ON ACTIVITIES THAT MATTERS A LOT TO YOUR EXISTENCE
