The pursuit for success is a race everyone is running so as to make something out of life and be a better person acknowledged by all. For some people that have goals, various strategies and plans have being derived towards getting great achievements but something seems to be wrong that makes your plan futile. As a person you need to know were you have made mistakes and failed and also accept that fact whereas don’t let that discourage you from putting more effort. A major secret I learnt is that when you fail over time you have more knowledge about things that made you fail, reasons why you failed and how to succeed. Majority of us just feel like when we fail we are losers and failures which is not so. There are hidden opportunities in failing and only people who keep trying again with the right mind set can succeed, to me failing is an act of acquiring more knowledge about reasons why things will work and not workout.
As for those that seem not to have goals or are yet to have goals it’s not over for you. The difficulty you have is based on self discovery and finding an identity in which only you can figure out your self with the guidance of the right people. You need to be focused so as to overcome that doubt and failure that prevents you from succeeding. To people out there that keep on trying to succeed but end up failing I say congratulations to you for you are building up yourself, widening your knowledge and being strong to overcome challenges that might come your way and for those still trying to discover their selves and goals congratulations to you because you are making efforts to be successful and never let that spirit die.
No matter the situation and level you find yourself always congratulate yourself for getting to that level and use that as a motivation that keeps driving you to achieve more. Self congratulation should be an encouraging and inspiring tool that keeps you going on your journey of success.
Sometimes i feel like I should just start my life over again because of the unbearable pain and struggles I face hoping to get something better out of life. I sit down remembering the loved ones I have lost due to different casualties, my failures and mistake that can’t be corrected except if going back in time is possible. As for my dreams and goals I am so far from reaching them due to factors surrounding me and my effort seems futile when I try working towards them.
On a mountain top admiring the beauty of nature as i thought: Just like the clouds that keep moving to beautify the sky with different forms, keep me going forward to beautify my life in various aspects which will later reflect in my world. Just like the hands of the clock that keep moving determined to pass over the bars, keep me going and motivated to pass over every barrier that seems to hinder me from my dreams. Just like drops of rain that continues over a period can become a river, keep me going to develop myself over time and be someone great that is recognized by all. As a man who loses a loved one, keep me going to understand life better and simpler as well as strengthen me to move on with my life as i remember him.
No matter what happened in the past just keep going forward for better things are ahead.
What an amazing, encouraging and touching texts I received from my self in the future explaining the result and the effect of my actions and great benefits of being disciplined now. The texts goes like this:
Hello dear, how are you and the family doing in spite of the major challenges that seems to overwhelm you. The stress and struggles that you are facing now are just to strengthen and mould you for higher places that you are dreaming of. All the responsibilities you are taking now are trying to make you self reliant and a responsible person to your family, friends and the society at large even when everyone seems to neglect their duties.
The late nights and time you spend alone reading books, praying, working and building up yourself are not in vain because here in the future you are the most amazing person that the world has ever known, your skills, intelligence and ideas are what is ruling the World now and making it a better place for all. Most times, it could be frustrating that the little money or lack of it might be insufficient to meet numerous needs at the required period but the truth is that it teaches you to be patient, save money for the future, discourages extravagant spending and lifestyle. It also encourages you to invest money and help others when you have enough.
Another aspect is being very disciplined in all that you do now for it will have great effect on you here in the future. Associate with the right people who support your dreams and life goals, don’t be scared to try your best and express your ideas, focus on making your ambition a reality and don’t give up to failure and doubt because you’re unstoppable.

Everyone in this life needs to achieve something or a lot of things at different phase of their lives. Sometimes you hope to start up a new business, seat for an advanced exam, graduate from school, work in places you love, buy a new house, car and a lot more that you desire that some times seem impossible for you to achieve. Really you could be funny to think of unrealistic things that have never existed before and that could lead to people laughing at you when you try to express your ideas to them.
The truth of the matter is that the reactions of people towards your dreams, goals and ambitions does not really count, what counts the most is how you can bring to life your creative thoughts and achieve them effectively all by taking one step. Once you take a step towards your goals you become higher than your contemporaries who discourage you. You may say I don’t have the required things to start pursuing my life goals but instead think deeply and start with what you have presently rather than waste away. Just give it a try by taking one step which you might fail but don’t be discouraged sit down to restrategies and improvise ways of solving problems ,from there try again and again until you have achieved them successfully.
Never settle your mind on what people will say about you and your dreams, be focused, be determined and dream your dreams rather than sleep and dream because it all starts with one step.
Lately, I know a lot has been going through your mind and you have being pondering on the next step to take in various aspects of life. Handling lot of responsibilities, focused on winning the next competition, pressured with family bills, aiming to achieve lots of goals and desires, choked up with ridiculous deadlines at work and just being confused. Most of us can relate to this but still don’t know what to do or how to handle them effectively .
The best method of addressing all these issues are by writing them down in a book. The secret behind writing in a book is that you tend to align your priorities according to its importance with your present time, you free your mind from a lot of junks and negative thoughts of not achieving your goals, you discover all around possibilities in your work, generation of creative ideas to your duties, health wise your brain attains a level of rest and peace which is very essential for it to function well. Realistically when you write your desires and goals in a book you express your self very well that you have a better understanding of the roles you have to play, the influence you make and its anticipated results.

Traveling through the path of life could be so tiring, feeling confused as to which direction to go, overcoming challenges and other external forces. Everyone of us have goals indirectly or directly, identified or unidentified, positive or negative which has a given task for us for it to be achieved. Our thoughts are made desires, desires transformed into aims and our goals wanting to be successful which will surely require a period of time to be achieved.
Where most of us fail is in the ability to wait for it to be achieved or manifested.
