Lucky or not
Good day guys, how are you doing today? I hope you're having a great Monday. Let's quickly review yesterday's article.
One thing that hinders progress in life is strife. Strife drifts our focus away from things that really matter and we become concerned about irrelevant things. If you'll be honest, you'll admit that to engage in conflict with other people requires energy and time. The question is now, why do people continuously engage in conflict?The problem is that there are people that are comfortable with strife instead of striving to make peace with others. That's to say that they have gotten used to being disagreeable instead of disagreeing. You can disagree without being disagreeable.
We must always know and remember that a disagreement is a disagreement, and it should remain that not that it graduates into a conflict. When you disagree, it does not mean that you hate the person or that you wish them bad. Disagreement does not mean and need you to dislike the person that holds an opposing opinion. It just means two people holding two different perspective to a matter.
You don't need too much to be peaceful. All you need to do is follow two simple rules:
First, you have to respect other people, their opinions, and their views on a matter.
Secondly, if you discover that there's a common ground for both of you to agree. You should agree instead of being unnecessarily disagreeing.
If you respect the other person and you take time to see beyond your own view, there's likelihood for you to find common ground with them. This is a very effective way that violence and strife can be avoided. If you study peaceful people, you'll find out that they're are not necessarily stubborn, they are just confident about their position and views and they're willing to compromise in order to reach a solution that will cause peace for all.
I believe that if we can all learn to practice this, the world will move forward.
Special thanks to my sponsors both old and the ones planning to, subscribers both old and those that will subscribe now, also thanks to those who thumbs up and comment on my post, I really appreciate all of you, I do not take it for granted.
Luck is what happens when preparation meets opportunity. Whether you’re called to business, art, education, politics or any profession, this principle is immutable. Opportunity comes to the prepared. That means every it’s not enough to simply get prepared, you must stay prepared. Knowledge in most fields doubles about every five years, and you must keep growing, so that you match the world. When you believe that tomorrow’s success depends on today’s preparation, you see today differently. You understand that success is not a gift but a reflection of hard work and investment in yourself.
You understand that every challenge you face can be an opportunity for growth and learning. Every circumstance in your life, however difficult or challenging, can become a useful tool for improving your life and the lives of people around you. Luck is what happens when opportunity meets preparation, and the more prepared you are, the luckier you become.
Underperformers choose not to prepare. They don’t see their flaws as the symptoms of a character flaw, but as part of their identity. They fail to see that if they were better people, they would be more successful people. They don’t connect their choices with their outcomes. They are in a perpetual cycle of rewarding mediocrity and punishing greatness.
If you want to succeed, learn how to prepare. - It might sound simple, but that’s because it is. We live in an era when knowledge is literally doubling every five years. If you don’t keep up, you’re going to fall behind. That’s why preparation is so important. If you want to be successful, you have to know what’s coming and start preparing for it early.
Thanks for reading through. I hope loved it.
