“There is no shame in having fallen.  Nor any shame in being born into a lowly estate.  There is only shame in not struggling to rise.  And also shame for not wishing to attain the better.  Or not dreaming about it and praying for it.”  Samuel Amalu

 

8 Qualities For A Successful Life  

Having a successful life is a worthy goal for all of us.  Research has found that possessing 8 qualities can lead to a productive and enjoyable life. 

1.  Radiate self-confidence.  When self-confident we are enthusiastic, positive, ambitious, supportive of others, happy, and content with life. 

2.  Ask for wisdom.  When pursuing a goal we need to ask, ask, ask, for wisdom from those who have already achieved our dream. 

3.  Determine in advance what we will do and what we will not do.  We have a game plan with specific details in order to not deviate from achieving our goal.

4.  Be willing to take risks and dream big. We must risk wisely and at the same time have significant goals that stretch us.

5.  Realize setbacks are part of life.  We can learn from our “goal delays” and then not repeat mistakes that we made in the past. 

6.  Celebrate successes.  After achieving a goal, it is important to commemorate our triumph by going out for a special meal, having a getaway weekend, going on a special vacation, etc.

7.  Be satisfied with what we have and spend less than we make. We need to understand that “things” don’t bring happiness but it is our journey of serving God and others that makes our life enjoyable. 

8.  Give back to God and charitable organizations.  We are never fully successful unless we are “givers” in many ways including financial gifts to God and charities. 

Today:  Begin incorporating these attributes in order to improve and grow in your personal life.

Five Qualities For Dealing With Life Problems

Life is not fair and filled with continual challenges.  Developing mental toughness is an important goal in order to handle various life issues.  Shown below are 5 qualities that can make a difference when a life trial arises. 

1.  Embrace change.  Be flexible and willing to adapt when change occurs because changes are part of daily life.  Recognizing that some type of change is always just around the corner builds mental toughness. 

2. Be confident.  Henry Ford said, “Whether you think you can, or think you can’t—you are right.”  Overcome any doubt by making things happen and believing in your abilities and talents.

3.  Be positive. With God by your side, have the internal strength and character to find solutions for life difficulties.  When a life crisis occurs have the belief that “I can and I will cope with this problem by searching for answers.” 

4.  Avoid toxic individuals.  Negative, difficult people are emotionally frustrating and can easily drain you and pull you down rather than make your stronger.  Toxic people only hurt your positive attitude.

5.  Let go of setbacks.  Focus your attention on what you did right, not what you did wrong.  Forgetting the past and living in the present moment will empower you toward success.   

Today:  Begin using these 5 qualities and develop more personal assets through daily reading of positive materials.
