This Lie is From The Pit Of Hell

There is this lie from the pit of hell that is almost real like the air blowing across your face right now. Its really a mind boggling untruth and I feel so angry at myself for believing it so many times.

This lie is peddled by one wretched girl that sits a top one part of my head. Honestly this girl’s been a part of me for ages now. And each time I try I really can’t get this pitiable soul outta my neck.

I once complained to a friend about my stubborn companion. Mr. Friend told me this girl’s a plague. She can’t be removed from my system, killed or silenced but I can always rise above her if I wish.

You wanna know her name right? She’s called Miss. “Comfort Zone”. I get so tired listening to Comfort hurt me with her sweet lies.

Everyday she tells me sugar coated lies. Imagine just this evening, this liar from the pit of hell said I should not write because I already know I don’t feel like writing at all and more over, I don’t have any idea on what to write about. And I almost gave in. In fact I believed it, until now.

Yesterday, she coerced me into sleeping for one solid hour when I was supposed to read. And I was so naïve to take her words. Of course that was how I felt. So when she told me; you feel like sleeping son, go ahead sleep, this book can rest. I meekly obeyed like Adamu’s Lil Lamb.

This girl’s all over the place friend. I’ve given her such a large room around my head. Someone need help me get her out of here. Imagine! How dare she stop me from going for more because of her fears?

How dare “Comfort Zone” with hold me? Each day I charge like this but at the end, her sweet flatter wins. And to say the truth, she talks facts.

My comfort zone screams reality. She tells me my experience. The facts she sees and says beclouds my expectations. In fact to her, if I ever have any potentials, such is measured from my present experience.

That is my little story with miss comfort zone my friend. Do you have any such experience with someone like her? I bet you do too.

Of course everyone got a comfort zone. And what does it do?

Our comfort zone lies inherent within us. From our current experiences, it draws up solid reasons we should not try out our greatest aspirations because we are already ok.

Just imagine how much you would achieve if you didn’t have any fears, place or thing you are so comfortable to let go. Try to visualize how much difference there would have been in your life

Trust me your comfort zone is the greatest thing you’ll deal with if you must get beyond where you are right now.

Don’t get me wrong. Science already defines comfort zone as the place where you feel at ease and your anxiety level drops because you’re not uncertain about anything. You already know and have all you need.

In this post, I’m talking about breaking forth from this self-styled complacency which is rooted in a deep fear of the unknown. That if you ever step out of where you’re comfortable with, terrible things will happen to you. This is the lie from the pit of hell.

I’m talking about the truth. And this truth actually is this; nothing different, new or out of the usual will ever be achieved if you’ll not dare to go beyond the usual.

Its normal to have a comfort zone. It’s not unusual people have those self doubts when they first try something new but it’s usual and you need know that outside our ordinary abilities lies our extraordinary selves.

You are made of MORE. Don’t just aim higher, go for more!

How to become more effective

If i’m not mistaken, i remember some fourty minutes ago after i asked my self the impossible question, what do i write about?

The answer just came from within and unlike me, i was like, whenever i’m set to write, the topic will come, of its own accord.

And did the topic come?
Well, not until the moment i started writing this part.

Maybe free style is what I’m gonna write today but I’m not going to quit writing today.

And this is not just a mere puff, Its about discipline and i’m set to get myself disciplined enough, to attain this cherished writing goal.

OK. Now you’ve got that. Self discipline is what we’ll share today.

Let me make a confession. I feel really impressed and fulfilled, being able to attain almost all of today’s set goals.

To be very sincere, recently i found myself struggling a lot, to achieve various set goals.

I actually can’t remember if it was unforeseen circumstances that got my efforts stalled or not but i remember also how ‘under-disciplined’ I’d allowed myself lately.

When i said indiscipline i didn’t mean a total lack of self control but one of those situations where you feel overwhelmed with issues that you rarely remember to focus on priorities.

Those days when your needs will clash with wants and the present clash with future both of them demanding such equal attention, as if you are made of two individuals.

Have you been through such times before?

Ok. Like i said, sometimes, it gets really difficult to decide what to do, whenever there arise a clash of interest as regards your goals or ambitions.

At such times, i think hard then relate the benefit of choosing each of the options and their disadvantages, regarding my long term goals or life’s purpose.

Like today for instance, i felt it really necessary so i decided to summarily divide and allocate each of the 24 hours in a day thus: Ten hours for work, six for studies and the rest for Thinking (yes I love doing this) refreshment and resting.

Now, this is not a general rule but it’s my own way of being proactive and getting a bit more disciplined right now.

You may not necessarily follow a strict rule to become a more effective person but you must play by some principles if you want to improve your effectiveness. And one of those principles is Pro-activity.

You will have to proactively take responsibility for everything that will happen in your life, be it fair or ugly by setting up both short and Long term goals, in relation to your ultimate life’s purpose.

From there it will be more easier to decide without losing your head what to pursue at a particular time and what not to. Especially on those days you got a whole lot of stuff up your sleeves.

Then for you to make it work, you will also need loads of self-discipline and consistent action.

Plus whenever it seems really disappointing or discouraging, you remind yourself this is a journey, you keep moving because you’ll soon get used to it.

So what’s the simplest way to get more effective in one sentence?

My recipe: Find purpose, set goals, stick to goals when you don’t feel like it (self discipline), then get results.

Do you have ideas on how to get more effective? Let’s hear you…

YOU set the limits

*This is an olddd post. you’ll learn anyways.

How has it been? It’s been one hell of a week here. From dealing with a creepy fever to being overwhelmed with almost everything, i can say this is indeed my ‘craziest’ week in July.

Prior to the beginning of this week, i built such monumental expectations like skyscrapers but sadly, they all came tumbling down like a pack of card while i stood there watching.

To be frank, I’ll not tell you I’m a super human because i get-it-all-right no. Instead what makes me a hero in my own right is that i notice my mistakes and i don’t just learn from it, i show others how to avoid it.

So back to what i said. This week met me smiling but left me puzzled. And yes, that’s what it is.

Never have i been pressed in 3months, like this week. In fact, at a point the pressure had been so much that i became so clueless about what next to do.

I’d walked away from my systematic routines, took unthinkable decisions and even had to relax some personal rules. Yet i still had such great expectations.

At a point, i looked at myself, i felt so helpless fighting these events. Then my mind began to spurn out reasons why i should just shrug it off, after all it’s not my fault.

You know, actually, i could excuse the failure to achieve my chief aim for the week on the prevailing circumstances i found my self. I could also blame it on ‘events beyond control’ but no amount of excuse will erase the fact that this wasn’t an eventful week.

I lost it big time. Yes i did. And i was only lucky i could keep my head. So that means i didn’t lose it all.

Unforeseen events will still happen. Nature will always take it’s course but you have the sole duty to decide its role in your personal life. This is exactly what i should have reminded myself.

You see, life only gives you choices. It won’t make the choice for you. And whether you decide to choose or not, it’s still a choice.

The rain may start falling the day you’re supposed to be coronated but allowing the rain to stop the coronation is a choice.

Nothing on earth. No artificial event can stop you until you stop. You are the ceiling to your personal development. You set the limits because THIS is your life.
