What you choose to do life is all dependent on your goals and means to achieve them. With the right choice of methods and goals, yields the right results. On the other hand, wring choice of techniques leads to wrong results.  All things that we do is directly or indirectly affect the goals we set. This implies that we are responsible for our own progress.

In line with being responsible for the excuses and lots of complaints. This basically shows that when you fall short of realizing your set objectives, most likely you begin to blame others. The excuses and complaints are as a result of frustrations of falling short of achieving your objectives. Playing the blame game does not resolve frustrations associated with failure or shortcoming.

Complaints and excuses move you backward but suggestions push you forward. Stop making more excuses than you give suggestions. You are your worst enemy; Quit complaining and begin moving forward.

Wish you all the best as you set goals and achieve them.

Great day ahead.

Namaste.

Get out of your own way of success

We all have dreams and aspirations in life, however, there are days that we may not be favoring this. On those, ‘low days’ one may experience negative feelings and emotions or behave contrary to the dreams. It is normal to feel down, which may obscure the process through which we achieve the dreams.

On a race track there may be stones, ideally, you shall skip or avoid the stones so that your running. After passing by these stones, running becomes easy and you will get to the finish line happy and fulfilled. You can all relate to this racing track in your life. In the same, the race track is your life and the stones are the feelings, behaviors. The ‘stones steer you away from or off the track.

Since the ‘stones’ are hindrances; devices methods to either get the stones out of your way or circumnavigate them. This way your pathway is clear and you shall move forward towards achieving your dreams and goals.

Get rid of all negative items, self-destructive behaviors and move toward to your race’s finish line.

Wish you all the best as you set goals and achieve them.

Great day ahead.

Namaste.

Quotes are interesting words that spark something us both from the author of the quote and audience or individual that reads it. On the blog here, we have had the dose of goodness which has motivated and inspired most of you to live healthier lives.

“Once you learn to read, you will be forever free.” – Frederick Douglass

When you learn to read, your mind is open to inquiry and you open your mind to the world of education. Once you are open to inquiry, you are more inclined to solve societal problems around and thus contribute positively the society. As you succeed in the quest to solve problems the community around you is ranked successful.

Another contribution of this quote is that I  think you tend to be free through education because you will want to know more. I also think that you are free in the education world since you get immersed in that field or content.

Every time I grab a book to read, I find joy as well as freedom. I would love to know what this quote means to you. Share your thoughts on this quote in the comments.

The greatest gift you can give someone is the gift of the interested listener.

Listening is one of the soft skills that may not be taught but developed over time. Otherwise, we may become poor listeners. Listening is a great skill to learn and
Here a few items to note while listening, really listen to one another:

  • Listening to people brings out your love and concern for them.
  • Giving one your time, you give them a portion your life.
  • A listening eye is an act of kindness. Make kindness your lifestyle and not a time show.

Friendship isn’t a big thing, it’s a million little things such as listening.

Learn to be an amazing listener.

Namaste!

The main aim of the international yoga day is to create or raise awareness of the many benefits of practicing yoga. Yoga is said to unify the body and the soul.
1. Builds Strength
Yoga involves you being a still posture for a certain period of time. Over time, it helps the body build strength on certain muscles.
2. Reduce stress levels
The breathing techniques involved in yoga, help in releasing body stress and tension in the body.
3. Improve flexibility
In addition to building muscle strength, yoga also helps with body flexibility. as the body changes into various position, the joints become more flexibility with no pressures applied.
4. Keeps your weight in check
This is dependent on the type and intensity level of level. The higher the intensity level, the higher your heartbeat and more calories you burn.
5. Mental wellness
Regular yoga enables you to be calmer, have a clear mind. It also relaxes the mind and improves your concentration span.

Caution
If you are pregnant or have any complications such as heart issues or diabetes, consult with your health physician and your instructor as well. This way you avoid extra damage to your vital body organs.

In many occasions, things happen against what we expected. Our attitude towards these situation may vary.
Research shows that majority of humans view the negative perspective. this perspective blocks the possibility of us seeing the positive side of the situation. And that is where the problems begin.
Turning the perspective all around is not the easiest. But with patience and focus on the positive perspective, it is possible.
The positive thought will change your perspective of life.

Namaste!

Live Your Dream

Follow your passion. The sky is the limit. The only limitation you have to your dreams is yourself.

There is nothing wrong with following one’s passion. Everyone needs a passion.  But we live in a world constantly in flux with circumstances we often cannot control.  It is when people conflate passion with purpose that they end up in a situation like my friend. We should live each day with a purpose – doing the best job possible within our human power.  A person who lives with a purpose does not live in a fantasy world.  They have aspirations, but they take concrete steps each day to realose tehir pasion.That is really living a life with a purpose. i would like to sign off with aquote;

“No matter where you’re from, your dreams are valid.” Lupita Nyong’o

Thanksgiving 2016

It is that time of the year again. I have already begun this season of thanksgiving on a different note. Though I don’t live in the US, my family and I still celebrate it.

Yesterday my work day was outdoors. It was chilly and a bit of rain now and then. That is custom weather around November and December in Nairobi, Kenya. While at work, I reflect on the Thanksgiving and took note of this beautiful flower. Springing out of the bud to the beautiful flawless petals. It must be happy. Enjoying the beautiful sunshine. Like the flower, I am grateful to God, my family, friends and to all that I have met on the ‘blogsphere’.

I pray for peace and good health for all of you.

Happy Thanksgiving!
