MOTIVATION: DEATH PAINS or BIRTH PAINS

            DEATH PAINS or BIRTH PAINS?


OFTENTIMES, WE TEND TO MISREAD or misinterpret the message our present predicament is trying to pass across.

So, we throw the brick of our dreams on the wall, bend and pick up the pieces, wrap it up with a thick black linen and empty it in the trash can.

No one is exempted when it comes to feeling severe pains while on the road to success. But, the cancerous error we often make is that we fail to pause for a minute to ascertain if these pains are really death pains or birth pains.

REMEMBER, a woman in the delivery room goes through a degree of pain before the baby pops out and when gold is tossed into the fire( Pain) by the goldsmith, it comes out refined.

Oh! Ajayi Caleb, you don't seem to understand how hard it is over here. I've tried everything anybody in my shoes would have done but it all went over the bar.

Yes, you hit a rock in your quest to succeed, so you quit, thinking yourself a failure.

But, have you ever read or talked to anybody who's done anything of any significance and has not hit days, weeks, and months when they had to burrow through all kinds of opposition?

I once read a story about a couple who resided in a hill next to a mountain. One fateful day, as they were strolling through a canyon, they noticed wild mushrooms which they decided to pick some.

Of course, they didn't smoke them, they cooked them. After having dinner, they translocated the remnants to the kitchen. There, was an old, lazy cat which they had. So, they decided to feed it with some drops from the table. As hungry as the cat was, it gobbled up the mushrooms in a blink.

Later on, the couple went back to the kitchen and surprisingly found the poor cat lying helplessly on the floor, foaming at the mouth and panting for breath.

Immediately, they phoned the veterinarian who seriously advised the couple to hurry to the emergency room to get their stomachs pumped.

On their return from the hospital, they made their way to the kitchen expecting to see the cat lifeless on the floor. Instead, the cat was at the centre of the kitchen with a brand new set of kittens!


Can you imagine that! What they thought were death pains were in reality birth pains!


Yes, it may seem as if your dream is foaming at the mouth and struggling to breath, when in the real sense, you're just a step closer to birth your dreams.



Don't give up too soon on your dreams! You may need to wait for it. You may need to garner extra patience and perseverance. But your patience will be rewarded because it will come to pass. Never give up on something you really want, it is difficult to wait now, but worse to regret later.

Yes, it's easier said than done, you may say or Mr Ajayi, you don't know what I'm going through or your excuse may be it's a different world here you know. 

But, do you know that someone close or next to you there has gone through something similar to what you're experiencing right now. 

As a matter of fact, some have gone through worse situations and still came out better all because they never misinterpreted the message their predicament was highlighting.

The pain you're feeling now is part of the process. It's always too soon to quit. When you feel like quitting, take a look back at the reason you started. It may be that you're just having BIRTH PAINS, not DEATH pains.

CAREER: JOB INTERVIEW: 7 EASY WAYS TO MAKE A GOOD FIRST IMPRESSION

JOB INTERVIEW: 7 EASY WAYS TO MAKE A GOOD FIRST IMPRESSION
Need I remind you the saying, " first impression lasts longer." Then, if truly you know this and you believe it holds( sure it does), you'll agree with me that making a good first impression is a serious issue that needs to be dealt with.
What you showcase determines the kind of response you receive. Should in case you come out offensively, say in an argument, then you leave the recipient with no other option than to receive it defensively.
Now, back to the matter in consideration, making a good first impression at JOB INTERVIEWS is simple but several people flop and at the long-run taint their chances of securing the job. Then you return to square one.
First impression apart from your resume/qualifications plays a very cogent role in determining whether you'd be singled out of the countless applicants for the job.
Now that you've realized how important making a good first impression is, I'll enjoin yo…

BUSINESS ISSUES: HOW CAN I PROMOTE MY BUSINESS( a question most entrepreneurs rarely get answers to)

HOW CAN I PROMOTE MY BUSINESS? ( a question most entrepreneurs rarely get answers to)

EVERYDAY, we see different start-ups sprout. They begin with so much enthusiasm and zeal that gives their ' target audience' a sought of impression they will be on for a long time.

But, however, what we imagine or the   FIRST IMPRESSION we get isn't always the end result.

When these start-ups get hit with the frustration and failures on several attempts to promote their business, they allow the anger and bitterness that we all sometimes feel while on the job hijack their zeal and vision which makes their business divert from one of ascension to one of constant regression. This therefore births the ever- bulging option to fold up which they readily give in to.

To be candid, no business or start-up experiences a bump free ride to success. But this doesn't rule out the fact that it's possible to make headway.

To this effect, we've packaged, just for you, useful tips or strategies…

FEATURED POST: LEVELS OF FRIENDSHIP

LEVELS OF FRIENDSHIP
So many people lack a clear picture and understanding of the levels of friendship which entails specific freedoms and responsibilities, depending on the closeness of the relationship.
At times, we take one level for the other. We offer our time, attention and resources to a friend expecting something equivalent in return.
But as disappointing as it may be, we get something contrary or something below our expectations and at the long-run, suffer emotional trauma and heart- break.
These emotional pains and heart breaks could have been avoided or at least reduced if one had a clear understanding of the different levels of friendship and had treated each friend according to his category.
Of a truth, the following list of the basic levels of friendship can be found in many works on relationships.
This list can help you determine the rightful place for the different people in your life:
