Comfort Zone…Get Out Of It !

If you want your Life to have a meaning and purpose, you must first value your life… Start Today!

Each one of us is born to be a world-class champion in a particular field of endeavour. We are bound to find that particular field.

But, by doing the same things everyday, you cannot expect to deliver new and better results! Right? You need to bring about a Change in what you do and how you do things. You must transform the way you live your life!

Changing the way you live you life means changing the way you think. Changing how you think means changing what you have come to believe or accept about your life. This is something that is very hard, so hard that even when you so desperately want to change, you prefer to hang on to the misery because it is familiar and comfortable.

The Power of Listening

active-listeningMany of us underestimate the power of listening. We talk more than we listen!

Why? We all want to be heard and understood. Right? To do so, we need to have the knowledge and knowledge comes only when we become good listeners. Agree?

A person speaking needs to feel that he or she is heard and understood. They need to have a response when one is asked for. As humans the very nature of being understood and heard is connected to our sense of self worth. When you are speaking, you have something of value to say and you want to say it to contribute and to be heard. If you are not listened to or even ignored, it hurts and often affects your self esteem.

The Difference Between Trust and Faith

Often, we get confused on the difference between Trust and Faith…

Allow me to clear this difference with an illustration.

Once at a circus, there was this rope walker who showed us his amazing skills by walking tightrope-walkeron a rope from one end to the other. When he reached the other end, there was a huge sound of applause by the audience. The rope walker simply smiled. This time, he decided to blindfold himself and walk on the rope. Everyone was amazed upon him reaching the other end without falling off and gave him a bigger round of applause. He then asked the audience if they trusted him and the reply came YES!, we do! since they now trusted him on his magnificent skills, he now decided to carry a chair on his shoulders being blindfolded and walk the rope. Upon him reaching the end of the rope, there was a standing ovation and a louder round of applause for him. The audience was once again amazed by the rope walker.

He now said, you all trust me! He then asked “Who is willing to sit on that chair above my shoulders?”…there was pure silence!! He said the person who is willing to take that chance is the one who has complete Faith in me. 

“Faith is being sure of what we hope for & certain of what we do not see.”

-Heb 11:1

Stay Blessed!
