APPEARANCE IS NOT REALITY (Series 1)

People are like icebergs. There’s more to we humans than meets the eye. You see, only about 15% of an iceberg is visible above sea level whereas the other 85% is hidden below surface.
“You only get to see what I want you to see,” is one of the eminent thoughts in a lot of our minds today. And while these thoughts can be positive, most of the time we do this for self-rewarding and self-gratifying reasons.
There’s the story of the Korean Scientist who rose quickly to national fame in the late 90s. He’d achieved this due to an unmatched talent and skill which he possessed only to lose all of his life’s work in a blink because he lacked character.
Your character will go a long way to sustain your reality. Don’t always follow popular opinion only lose your essence in the process. Stay true to who you really are. Always think before you speak. Be kind always!
Leadership Expert, John Maxwell rightly said that, “no one can expect to succeed without strong character below the surface to protect his talent and sustain him during difficult times.”
Today, I’d tell you that while you’re grooming yourself to become someone of value, do not faint at every sight of difficulty. Instead, employ the power of a disciplined heart and make the (your) decision to grow through.
You must create your own reality and you must start from who you are and why you are. That is, ‘your true self’. Don’t waver at every opinion, shaking and cowering to the fear of being unaccepted by the majority.
You are someone, become that person. LIVE!

“It becomes interesting when you become interested” is where I’d start from...

One important skill you can acquire for your own success is ‘Learning How to Learn’

Here’s some suggestions of how you can do this. I’ve gathered up 4 of them here in this thread for your perusal 🙂
1️⃣ ALWAYS LISTEN MORE THAN YOU SPEAK

A good measure for gauging how people form thoughts is to first listen to them. There’s a rare ability embedded in using the knowledge from listening to people for persuasion or enlightenment.
2️⃣ UNDERSTAND THAT LEARNING ITSELF IS A PROCESS

The greatest enemy of learning is knowing. Nevertheless, the goal of all learning should be ACTION, not knowledge.

What path do we tread in a world full of envy, vile hatred, anger and so much greed?

What legacy should we want to leave behind?

To understand that, ‘Death, a destination that we all share’ is the common door which transcends us to immortality...
...and to do our very best before it’s our turn in line to enter in.

Our footprints will be a map that others who come after will follow - so we should (and must) want to lead right.
My reverence goes to the change makers, the selfless ones who give all they have and all they are to leave this world (and people) better than they meet it.

I’m elated to a place of nirvana, yet I must remember not to show fear - I must will to live out my purpose.

Too many times, I see people who want something but they are too lazy to get up and go after what they want.

Majority have allowed their minds (and themselves) to get in their way of achievement.
And in the process, they have gotten so attached to a failed way of life and have taken it for normalcy.

If you have at some point in your life thought that your best was all you could do and give to yourself, I dare to tell you that you can do better and you can be better.
It’s okay to lose that sleep for the gains ahead...

It’s okay to pay for that course to enhance your skills...

It’s okay to go to night school to increase your speaking proficiency...

In today’s fast spinning world, we have a lot of “busy” people who appear to be doing a lot and sometimes this can cause you to question yourself (and your purpose) if you are actually making any progress with your life.
Apparently, social media today have substituted make-believe for reality and created so many illusions in the place of truth. People have somewhat lost their sense of self and worth.
I am here to tell you today that if you can courageously SEE that you are worthy of the things you go after, and you are willing to CREATE the reality you want then I dare to tell you that you can BECOME it.
