Don’t let your life goals fall victim to the allure of comfortable routines.
Be very careful about investing in products that cater to people’s desire for instant results & gratification. This is one of people’s easiest weaknesses to exploit and manufacturers know this. Product makers don’t want your health, they want your money. The fact is, even if a product leads to short-term results, manufacturers are counting on your long-term business by convincing you that you need what they’re selling.
Understand, there is rarely any shortcut or “miracle pill” worth taking and unless you change your habits & priorities at the root level, you’re just catering to your weakness and masking a problem, not fixing one. Unless your strength is built on a solid foundation of self-discipline, you will forever be vulnerable to things beyond your control.
If you’re starting to struggle with your NewYearsResolutions it’s probably because you’re trying to initiate too much change at once. This leads to feeling overwhelmed & quitting. Focus on making progress on 1 goal or 1 part of it & keepgoing. Add complexity/more goals later.

Don’t let discouragement keep you from reaching goals within your grasp. Understand that facing setbacks & being discouraged doesn’t have to lead to quitting. Change your tactics & strategy as needed, but only quit if you know it’s best for you. Otherwise, keep pushing yourself.

Too many people have a habit of putting off things that they know will be good for them. It takes less than 10 minutes to reap the benefits of physical exercise. And less than 10 to educate or better yourself in some way. Changeyourlife by bettering yourself. Start today.

May the love you give find its way back to you. And may you forever be filled with the hope & strength necessary to make your dreams a reality.

Evil doesn’t just show up and announce itself as evil. It might even look like something good at first. And it will certainly try to convince you that it is. But little by little it works in ways that end up having major negative consequences if you continue to turn a blind eye to the damage it’s doing in what it wants you to believe is in your own best interest.
Be mindful of where you invest your time. Try to focus more on things that add value and less on things that simply make moments go by.
Time is one of the few things in life that we can never get more of. Be diligent in determining when it is in your best interest to avoid situations & activities that do nothing but put off things you could be doing that actually make a positive difference in your life (or someone else’s).
Remember, by changing your priorities you change your life. When you prioritize your time to those things that add real value to your career, your education, your relationships and your mental & physical health, your life responds by giving you more of the rewarding things that you seek and less of the negative things that you don’t.
Above image is an excerpt from: my book series
Abuse. Aggression. Disease. Dishonesty. Disrespect. Unrest. Corruption. Cronyism. Loss of freedom and privacy.
The longer we tolerate things that we find unappealing or unacceptable, the more normal they seem and the less those things shock us.
This is how “I can’t believe it.” becomes “That’s just the way things are.”
Making progress usually leaves people feeling better, not worse. By failing to pay attention to the direction life is leading you, you are far more likely end up in a place you don’t want to be.
