I have decided to live life and enjoy life. I have refused to depend on my situations. I rather see the best in every situation, no matter how bad they might look at the moment. I am convinced that the situation that seems not to be working for me at the moment will definitely work for my own good, so I rather hope for the best. Every morning when I wake up I create the nature of my environment. I stay focused and remain positive. I attract goodness and mercy.
The definition of luck (or chance) varies by philosophical, religious, mystical, or emotional context of the one interpreting it. According to the classic Webster’s Dictionary, luck is “a purposeless, unpredictable and uncontrollable force that shapes events favourably or unfavourably for an individual, group or cause.” However, the author Max Gunther defines it as “events that influence one’s life and are seemingly beyond one’s control.”
To laugh is to make the spontaneous sounds and movements of the face and body that are the instinctive expressions of lively amusement and sometimes also of derision. To laugh is to express mirth, pleasure, derision, or nervousness with an audible, vocal expulsion of air from the lungs that can range from a loud burst of sound to a series of quiet chuckles and is usually accompanied by characteristic facial and bodily movements.
Serendipity is the luck that takes the form of finding valuable or pleasant things that one is not looking for. It is the occurrence and development of events by chance in a happy or beneficial way. Serendipity can be described as a happy accident. Serendipity can be explained as a ‘fortunate happenstance.’ It is a ‘happy’ juxtaposition where we might feel surprisingly content, for instance in the wrong surroundings.
Wisdom is the quality of having experience, knowledge, and good judgement. Wisdom is having the ability to discern or judge what is true, right, or lasting. Knowledge is information gained through experience, reasoning, or acquaintance. Knowledge can exist without wisdom, but not the other way around. One can be knowledgeable without being wise. Knowledge is knowing how to use something; wisdom is knowing when to use it.
Everybody must learn to make choices in life. Making a choice is more difficult than ever. We live in an unprecedented age of options. There is such a variety in human history for cars, phones, jobs, products, lifestyles and everything you can think of. Choice is the purest expression of free will. The freedom to choose allows us to shape our lives exactly how we wish, provided we have the resources to do so. But the choice is difficult because it also represents sacrifice. Choosing something inherently means giving up something else, something we might want tomorrow, or next week and that won’t be available to us if we don’t grab it today.
When I was in primary school, I was bullied by a bigger pupil in my class. The experience wasn’t pleasant. I was afraid to share my pain with anyone. I don’t want to be laughed out so I pretended like I was OK and doing great. Truth is anytime I see the bully I have this massive encroaching pain in my stomach with some sort of panic attack. I was liberated when I had no one to rescue me as I was attacked by the bully. I fought the last fight of my life and I was surprised when I triumph. I made a mess of the bully and that day my story changed. The day I thought I was going to lose my life was the day I actually gained back my life.
It is time to stop focusing on unnecessary things, and begin to focus on the things that matter in life. Prioritising means you will need to accord different levels of importance to different tasks on the road to achievement. Too many times we get carried away or caught up on time wasting ventures that does not help our goals and vision. They slow us down or distract us. You have the right to resist such distraction and stay focused. Prioritise your activities properly by making a list of those activities that will not help you achieve your goals. This will help you cut the unnecessary activities from your schedule and be more efficient.
A vision is the ability to think about or plan the future with imagination or wisdom. If you don’t have a clear vision, no strategy will save you. In the absence of a clear strategic direction, you will always do what you think is right and this won’t always give you the best results you anticipate. In order to achieve your vision you need to stay focused and motivated.
A vision is the ability to think about or plan the future with imagination or wisdom. A vision enables a person to move forward with clarity. It is important to note that vision and strategy are both important. But there is a priority to them. Vision always comes first. If you have a clear vision, you will eventually attract the right strategy.
