8 decisions you will have to make daily.

1) Wealth vs Greed

Wealth is a strength. It can be a tool that can benefit many. It can create freedom for you and your family, health, happiness, security and endless memorable memories.

Greed is a weakness. A struggling child's selfish desire, an endless hope of nothingness.
1A) In life, many seek wealth, but are really chasing greed. It is important to not only understand the difference, but to recognize both in its many forms.

Wealth builds you up while greed tears you down.

Wealth can create a life while greed can destroy many lives.
2) Faith vs Fear

Faith is a strength. The foundation for any relationship and any belief. Faith gives you a reason to believe in the impossible.

Fear is a weakness. Fear is an emotional reaction to an unwelcomed experience. Fear is doubt and has no place in your life, ever.
2A) Some may say that faith and fear often exist at the same time.

But can you really have fear if you have faith? Can faith override any fear?

I say the answer is yes.

Faith defeats fear every time.
3) Create vs Consume

Creating is a strength. Everything you use on a daily basis was created by somebody. Creating is in your DNA. Tap into it as much as possible to find your true potential.

Consuming is a weakness. For some people this is a way of life. All they do is take.
3A) To create is to live.

You are not alive to merely consume and die.

You are alive to live, to love, to find passion and then turn that passion into action.

Make sure you are CREATING your life.

Or someone else will create it for you.
4) Giving vs Taking

Giving is a strength. They say the more you give the more you get. But more importantly giving is a sign of a hope. To help another person is pure love.

Taking is a weakness. Most people take what they cant get for themselves. They are lazy and selfish.
4A) Do you ever get more joy from giving rather than receiving?

Have you ever taken something from someone and immediately regretted it?

Have you ever given someone something and immediately regretted it?

Regret has no place in life.

Give. Give and give some more.
5) Mindful vs Mindless

Mindful is a strength. It means you make conscious decisions in the moment based on rationale decision making. This is a super power.

Mindless is a weakness. You make unconscious irrational decisions. Mindless people see the bad in everything.
5A) Living in the moment and making rationale decisions has become a super power.

So many people mindlessly waste away their lives while some people take the wheel and change the world.

Being aware of your decision making in the moment separates the good from the great.
6) Health vs Disease

Health is a strength. A healthy mind and body has gone from being the norm to being a status of eliteness in the world.

Disease is a weakness. So many diseases shatter will shatter your mind, your body and your hopes. Some diseases you create, avoid them.
6A) In most cases choosing a healthy life over a disease filled life is a choice.

What you put into your body is what you will likely get out of it.

Fuel yourself wisely, train your body and mind ruthlessly.

Always be intentionally with your decisions.
7) Love vs Lust

Love is a strength. Especially when you start by loving yourself. Loving yourself opens up life and allows you to see the beauty in all things.

Lust is a weakness. The ultimate challenge between good and evil. Do you desire things for the right reasons?
7A) To some love and lust are the same thing.

But to a man and to a woman they are drastically different.

Love is pure and lust is evil. One gives and one takes.

Make sure to live a life of value by spending your every breathe focused on loving more.
8) Struggle vs surrender

Struggle is strength. It is not defeat, it is a potential power that is waiting for you to use it. Embrace hard times because they can create the ultimate strength.

Surrender is weakness. When you quit, you lose. If you never quit, you can never lose.
8A) To struggle is to live.

To surrender is to die.

Never give up on yourself and never give up on your dreams.

Life is a constant battle between good and evil. Between strengths and weaknesses.

Never lose hope. Never lose faith.

This painting of a young woman breastfeeding an old man in a prison cell was sold for Euros 30 million. The painting may look perverse but the story behind is amazing. #Thread Image
The poor man was sentenced to "death by starvation" for stealing a loaf of bread during the reign of King Louis XIV in France. The woman was his only daughter and the only visitor allowed to visit him in his cell. She was searched thoroughly such that no food was taken in.
When after 4 months the man still survived with no weight loss, the authorities were perplexed and started spying on her in the cell and to their utter astonishment found her to breastfeed her father to the fullest sharing her baby's milk.

1. Don’t call someone more than twice continuously. If they don’t pick up your call, presume they have something important to attend to.
2. Return money that you have borrowed even before the person you borrowed remembers or ask for it. It shows your integrity and character. Same goes with umbrellas, pens and lunch boxes..etc.
3. Never order the expensive dish on the menu when someone is giving you a lunch/dinner.

10 Habits That Can Ruin Your Life


1. Procrastinating

Procrastination is the thief of time, collar him.

You can also set a timer on your phone for 15 minutes and commit to doing your task until it goes off, usually just starting will give you momentum
2. Comparison

Comparison can truly ruin your life. Even when you experience positive things, the victories will be hollow.

There will always be other people with “better” circumstances than you.

Remind yourself that we are all human. No one is perfect.
3. Thinking Instead of Doing

Do u spend more time thinking about doing a task than it would actually take to just do it?

If there is something you’ve been needing to do for a while do it today or schedule it in your calendar right now & stop wasting your mental energy on it.
