BUILD YOUR SELF ESTEEM, A STARTER GUIDE TO SELF IMPROVEMENT

BUILD YOUR SELF ESTEEM, A STARTER GUIDE TO SELF IMPROVEMENT
Description: So how do you stay calm, composed and maintain self-esteem in a tough environment? Here are some tips you may to consider as a starter guide to self-improvement.

Imagine yourself as a Dart Board. Everything and everyone else around you may become Dart Pins, at one point or another. These dart pins will destroy your self-esteem and pull you down in ways you won’t even remember. Don’t let them destroy you, or get the best of you. So which dart pins should you avoid?

#1: Negative Work Environment
Beware of dog eat dog theory where everyone else is fighting just to get ahead. This is where non-appreciative people usually thrive. No one will appreciate your contributions even if you miss lunch and dinner, and stay up late. Most of the time you get to work too much without getting help from people concerned. Stay out of this, it will ruin your self-esteem. Competition is at stake anywhere. Be healthy enough to compete, but in a healthy competition that is.

#2: Other People’s Behavior
Bulldozers, brown nosers, gossipmongers, whiners, backstabbers, snipers, people walking wounded, controllers, naggers, complainers, exploders, patronizes, sluffers all these kinds of people will pose bad vibes for your self-esteem, as well as to your self-improvement scheme.

#3: Changing Environment
You can’t be a green bug on a brown field. Changes challenge our paradigms. It tests our flexibility, adaptability and alters the way we think. Changes will make life difficult for a while, it may cause stress but it will help us find ways to improve our selves. Change will be there forever, we must be susceptible to it.

#4: Past Experience
Its okay to cry and say ìouch! when we experience pain. But don’t let pain transform itself into fear. It might grab you by the tail and swing you around. Treat each failure and mistake as a lesson.

#5: Negative World View
Look at what you’re looking at. Don’t wrap yourself up with all the negativities of the world. In building self-esteem, we must learn how to make the best out of worst situations.

#6: Determination Theory
The way you are and your behavioral traits is said to be a mixed end product of your inherited traits (genetics), your upbringing (psychic), and your environmental surroundings such as your spouse, the company, the economy or your circle of friends. You have your own identity. If your father is a failure, it doesn’t mean you have to be a failure too. Learn from other people’s experience, so you’ll never have to encounter the same mistakes.

Sometimes, you may want to wonder if some people are born leaders or positive thinkers. NO. Being positive, and staying positive is a choice. Building self-esteem and drawing lines for self-improvement is a choice, not a rule or a talent. God wouldn’t come down from heaven and tell you ñ George, you may now have the permission to build self-esteem and improve yourself.

In life, it’s hard to stay tough especially when things and people around you keep pulling you down. When we get to the battle field, we should choose the right luggage to bring and armors to use, and pick those that are bullet proof. Life’s options give us arrays of more options. Along the battle, we will get hit and bruised. And wearing a bullet proof armor ideally means ëself changeí. The kind of change which comes from within. Voluntarily. Armor or Self Change changes 3 things: our attitude, our behavior and our way of thinking.

Building self-esteem will eventually lead to self-improvement if we start to become responsible for who we are, what we have and what we do. It’s like a flame that should gradually spread like a brush fire from inside and out. When we develop self-esteem, we take control of our mission, values and discipline. Self-esteem brings about self-improvement, true assessment, and determination. So how do you start putting up the building blocks of self-esteem? Be positive. Be contented and happy. Be appreciative. Never miss an opportunity to compliment. A positive way of living will help you build self-esteem, your starter guide to self-improvement

CREATIVITY AND THE IMPORTANCE OF APHORISMS

CREATIVITY AND THE IMPORTANCE OF
APHORISMS.
Get out of your mind and become crazy about
your future in a creative way!
The above quote is a wake-up call to those who
were hiding their lights under the bushel.
The exhibition of artistry in everything we do is
the most hardest thing to come about, yet the
most simplest thing for those that put their soul
in all their undertaking in life.
Creativity is originality, the killing of fear of being
scorned, the believe in your words, actions and
dispositions, without listening to criticisms or
discouraging remarks from those who are afraid
of your success or people who simply don’t
understand how creative people behave, judging
them from their own lackadaisical outlooks or
perceptions. We all have a burning desire to do
something, maybe something imaginative, but to
put it across in a creative way needs much more
creativity to make it much more creative.
The attainment of artistry comes when we explore
the maxims and and ordinances of our past
heroes, tapping from their leftover wine of acumen
without corrupting the sanctity of our inner
perceptions, stealing their thoughts in creative
way…all poets understands this if they’re true
poets.
To be CREATIVE, YOU have to be CRAZY, not
because you’re CRAZY, or want others to become
CRAZY, but because you must be CRAZY, before
others become CRAZY for you! Sudden thoughts
emerge, and i call them, ” the accidental
discharge of powerful emotions”. Most of us
experience this in the corporeal and incorporeal
states of consciousness. We sense things in
almost an overwhelming or emotional way that
we find it very difficult to relay in any dialect.
We kill creativity with conformity, i believe that
pure imagination is devoid of appearing before a
judge.~Prince Slycon Continue reading

BUILDING A GOOD SELF IMAGE

Building a good self-image is like carving an image from wood or molding an
artifact from the clay. It passes through deserving characteristics, demanding
opportunities and deployment of an individual’s heartfelt wishes to be how
he/she best loves to be known.
The Oxford Dictionary of Current English defined self-image as “the idea one
has of one’s abilities, appearance, and personality”. A good self-image
confines in you a reputable conception about you and makes you to develop
confidence in your own worth. A bad self-image on the other hand deforms
your expected self, making you full of incapability. A good self-image
enhances your internal harmony and that integrates you peacefully into your
external environment, preparing and equipping you to actualize the purpose
of God in your life. The following tips will guide you to build and maintain a
good self-image;
1. See yourself as God sees you:
How does God see you? He sees you as he sees human beings when he is
about to make them and send them. Think about it. It is very simple; God
loves you and sees you as a messenger, sent by him to fulfill an assignment.
Don’t hate yourself because it will be like hating what God loves. Hating
something that God loves is a sin. God loves you and you cannot in anyway
change that attribute of God. Hence, you must love yourself the way you are.
See yourself as a tool that God is holding in his dominant hand, ready to do
a great work. Prepare your mind and see your own image with an imaginary
mindset of God. Keep telling yourself; “If I were not good enough, God
wouldn’t have sent me to earth”. Yes! You are good machinery; good enough
and better off for something wonderful that is why you were sent to earth.
2. Repent quickly and free your mind:
Have you ever done something wrongly and it kept hunting your mind from
time to time? Your knowledge about your own image comes from your
imaginations. How you think of yourself reads to you who you are.
Continuous meditation on a bad behaviour you put up recently will only
create a yoke of bondage in your heart. This yoke keeps telling you about
what a hypocrite you are and that means you can’t have a sincere ego to live
a life of freedom. Repent and stay away from sin. When you live a life of a
hypocrite, you end up being unsecured and this can kill your conscience with
ease. Believe and assure yourself of a sincere repentance when you fall short
of the glory of God. Reclaim that glory and spread your wings as if you are a
new born bird, ready to fly! You are safe when you have a sincere heart.
3. Admit that you are not infallible:
One of the most peaceful statements a person can make in his life time is to
say; “I am right, but I may be wrong” . That statement honestly known and
affirmed will make you humble to admit your mistakes and guide you to
correct them with time. You are not infallible; you may make mistakes and
that is a fact. By your speeches, actions and thoughts, you may sink into
fault by which someone may become offended. You may make wrong choices
and go for wrong judgments in terms of business, relationships, and
investments and even in fellowship. What you need to do now is to imagine
your status through the sight-mind of God. Find where you went wrong and
by asking others who are consistently concerned about telling you freely
about yourself. Assess yourself from time to time to notice how your steps
are offending someone unnecessarily. Learn to say “I am sorry”, if that is
what would make peace between you and your offended counterparts.
However this attitude should not make you to become excessively timid,
apologetic and self-humiliating to the extent that you refuse to speak your
mind about some radical issues affecting your disposition and environment.
4. Set your mind on positive things:
What you progressively think about is what you are likely to appear to be.
Filtrate your imaginations and delete negative ideologies and thoughts of less
or no productivity. Never waste your thought musing over evil plans; you
destroy your self-image if you do so. Don’t keep and offence in your heart
for a longer period. You hurt your emotion if you do so. Hurting your emotion
means, you are constructing an attitude whose help will leave you unguided
on your path to success. Have a compelling vision that sets your mind on
what God can do through you. This is the kind of imagination that sets your
brain on restorational purpose of God in your life through the redemptive
power of Christ. It is called Holy Meditation. It keeps you far away from
things that would make your knowledge about yourself to be dim.
5. Be moderate, not too low and not too high:
Your physical exposure has a high influence on your mental stability. A
person with a very good self-image integrates faithfully through sincere
layering and leveling of his or her acceptance into his or her environment. In
your speech, never talk too less of your abilities; that is low self-esteem.
Don’t talk too high and boastfully about your sole capacity; that is pride. In
your appearances, don’t show off to be excessively glittering in costly jewelry
in relation to those around you. The concept of self-moderation does not
preach mediocrity. Mediocrity is absent when you set your mind on positive
things and do all things with all decency. The fact and conclusion is that you
need a simple life to go to heaven. The complexity of your earthly array is
not a guarantee for a triumphant eternity!
6. Make friends with people who encourage you:
One of the sweetest spices that sweeten the taste of your self-image is good
companionship. As a matter of fact, God did not create you to be alone. That
is why relationship is necessary. However, not every relationship is a
productive one. The presence of good friends, colleagues and relatives
enhances your meaningfulness in your environment. Imagine you are the only
person on this earth just like Adam was in the beginning of the world. Life
would be boring for you. A meaningful life is experienced on the laps of
socialization, good interpersonal relationship, and communication. These help
you be connected with people of like-minds and that stabilizes your peaceful
co-existences and harmony in life.
7. Give compliments to others freely:
You are entitled to your gifts and talents and that is the source of your
success on earth. You should however avoid looking down on people because
they can’t do what you do. Everyone is a leader in his or her area of
specialization, hence the fact that someone may not do what you do means
you may also not have the capability to do what someone does. Cultivate
the habit of giving compliments to people who deserve it. Breakdown the
walls of unhealthy ego and negativity that may only make you to think you
are the better than everyone else beside you. With this, you will live a life
without holding any negative impression about others.
~~~~~~~~~~
Remember what Eleanor Roosevelt said that “no one can make you feel
inferior without your permission” . You have the right to keep offences in you
or ignore them. You have the right to feel good about your own identity and
be happy with what you have or have seen.
Stop comparing yourself to others. It will either make you too proud of
yourself if you see them to be too low or it will make you to feel too low
when you rate them to be high.
Stop saying negative things about yourself. You deserve to be great and
you must. Encourage yourself in every situation.
Stop regurgitating over your bad conducts. They are real, but you must
be able to repent quickly and have your inward liberty.
May God help you to build up and maintain an image in his likeness. Live life
so well.~Prince Slycon Agbesiprinceslycon

An open letter to all young dreamers!

An open letter to all young dreamers!

Dear aspiring achiever, you are on course by taking a step. Keep on stepping forward because plural steps make the sentences of your success story meaningful! Every dream seed needs manures. So your dream seeds where organic nutrients are… Don’t force a bad soil to help nurture your dream seeds. It can’t! Don’t force people who have no interest supporting your aspiration! Be willing to go against the wills of people who want to stop you. Yes! That’s what the airplane does; it goes against the wind and flies over continent to continent! Learn this from the aeroplane; before it goes global, it must go against the wind. Note the windy obstacles in your life and take off against them promptly! Never follow worldliness! Some dreams appear to be rational, but Godly calculations will inform you of their irrational figures. Yes! If your dream can’t please God, it’s no dream! Watch your words. Consider many things before you speak. Good words do two things; they inform the hearer or edify the speaker. Let your words benefit the world! If your words drop down your self-esteem, you are abusing your language! If your words hurt another person, you are misusing your tongue! Be ready to offer knowledge based on what you have to who needs it. Prepare to asked questions to have access to what you also need! Ask relevant questions and you will get relevant answers! There is no time to stop learning! The curious mentalities of people who are willing to take calculated risks are the roofs on which undone things are done! God made you to be complete. Your head is your roof; your feet are your floor. Keep your brain and soles active always and you will appreciate what you will achieve from that! First open the doors of prayer and get into the chambers of dreams. Open the next doors of actions and get into the hall of persistence… Guess what? The next door is the door of Success leading into the quarters of excellence! See you at the top! Yours sincerely,
prince slycon.

Life

Life
There may be days when you get up in the morning and things aren’t the way you had hoped they would be times when you try so hard to smile on the outside whiles you are dying gradually inside,
Don’t give up.
That’s when you have to tell yourself that things will get better.
There are times when people disappoint you and let you down but those are times when you must remind yourself……………………………..
To trust your own judgment and opinions and keep your life focused on believing in yourself for every problem has a solution. Every question has an answer.
Just because you don’t have solutions today does not mean you will never have them. This is not the end.
We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; Persecuted, but not forsaken; cast down, but not destroyed.2corinthians 4:8-9.Todays test will bring tomorrow’s promotion. Smile…the lord is with you. May the almighty God strengthen you. By Prince Slycon Agbesi

3 KIND OF PEOPLE WHO WILL MEET YOUR DREAM

3 kinds of people who will meet your
dreams!
Believe me or not, no matter the size of your dreams, the weight of your
passion and the length of the journey you have to go through to fulfill your
vision in life, you are going to meet people of diverse opinions, interests and
perceptions! That should not bring you any big packages of surprises. What
you got to do is to chose the right people, at the right time, for the right
reasons because of your right dreams. Below is a list of 3 distinct categories
of people you are likely to meet;
1. People who you can never impress: This category comprises negative
people who are not satisfied with whatever you do whether as an amateur or
as an expect. You may cut their heads and put it on the clouds, but they still
believe you can neither hold a cutlass nor pick a knife. These people can
easily kill premature dreams and hence, it is no good plan to look unto their
approval before you set off to the top! Majority of these people have these
“negative political egos” which tends to say once you don’t belong here,
whatever good thing you do will not be counted. When this kind of people
employ you, you are likely to suffer condemnation even on the day you
performed at your highest field of your passion! When you employ this kind
of people, you may try to give them the best salary package, but still they
say “you didn’t try at all”.
2. People who you can only impress with your products: This category
includes people who see you doing nothing and believe you are nothing; then
they see you doing something and they believe you are something. This kind
of people will inspired you to do more than you have done. Initially, they
would not expressively recognizing you let alone inspiring you. But with your
new level of performance they, they see your products and now believe that
“yes, you can do it”. It is said that people who often say “you can’t do it”
are the same people who will say “we know you can make it” when at last
you succeed! Never be around these kinds of people as a beginner, they kill
the premature dreams in your head. But when time is due, pave your way
with their taps on your shoulder saying “you ahead and do more”!
3. People who you can impress with your raw materials: This category
consists of people who are always ready to say “you can do it” even at the
time that you have not yet started. They see the raw dreams in you and
never wait for you to start, or completed school or get married, or start your
business before they open up to say “you can”. These people believe that
every seed of talents in you have many viable cotyledons of global influence
and would not wait to see it germinating before they confirm that is can
grow! A single communication with these people would make you feel like
you can break the rock of Gibraltar with a single blow! They are positive
people and with them being beside you, you don’t need an alarm clock to
wake you up because the passion they awake in you will wake you up to
change your destiny!
Next time you go sharing your dreams with someone, you must be aware of
the category in which the person belongs. However, the fact that nobody is
impressed about your dreams and your actions is not a judgment that you
cannot make it. Simply Believe & Achieve . Believe that you can do it and
your story will go to tell the world that yes, these local raw materials can
become a global finished products!
Go, make it happen~princeslycon

5 REASON WHY POTENTIALS ARE LIVING THING

5 reasons why“potentials are living

things”!

Potentials are living things and I believe you want

to know why they are. They really are because

they poses almost all the features of living things

perhaps you are thinking of listing. This should

inform you that the activities you embark on upon

should not offend the emotions of your potentials

since they can respond dully. What are some of

the features that makes potentials appear like

“living things”? Below, I expose you to five (5)

irrefutable reasons why potentials are living

things!

1. Potentials can grow: Potentials can grow when

fed with the ideal meals of passion, persistent

and consistency! A growing potential changes

dreams into realities by connecting passion and

hard work with opportunities and intelligence! The

growth of a potential signifies the development

and maintenance of a vision. Visions are the end

products of dreams and it takes living potentials

to call them out of their small steads. When you

spend time to nurse, nurture and nourish your

potential, you give the world a birth of success

which becomes your purpose of existence!

Potentials can grow!

2. Potentials can die: The death of a seed if the

murder of the forest. When an egg breaks,

thousands of birds dies. A potential is mortal

when it meets whatever can kill it. Lack of

passion, bad attitudes, bad friendship, indecision

and above all godlessness are the tools that can

suffocate potentials to death. A person who

refuses to optimize the talents given to him by

God is a murderer of success. Potentials suffer to

thrive in the hands of those who merely live and

not exploring to discover and deploy the purpose

of their calling. Those who say “i’t’s impossible”

are threatening their potentials at a gun point.

Potentials can die!

3. Potentials can suffer from disabilities: A person

who is called to fly like the eagle, goes hoping

like the frog, and you know what that means? It

means he had mutilated part of his dreams away

for the reasons known to him alone! When a plan

is drafted and divorced to become a lone ranger

on the paper, it will suffer from disability! When a

well planned course is started and jilted to suffer

in single-hood, it will suffer from disability! So

what is meant by disability? This the ability to

leave unaccomplished tasks unaccomplished! It is

determined by how often you “give up” when you

begin something. The disability of a potential is a

temporal incapability and can be corrected by

“trying again”! Potentials can be disabled!

4. Potentials can be sick: When a potential is sick,

it needs quick attention of other people who are

experts in healing and treatment of ailments.

Some sickness can lead to death when not well

handled by the personalities involved or by the

personalities who are unqualified to do so. Yes,

who gives you advice when you are faced with

indecision? Who counsels you when you are

depressed? Who informs you when you are found

wanting? Simply, who hangs around your door

when it’s night? It’s normal for a living thing to

be sick and breakdown at times to recover again

with fresh energy. Be careful when your potential

goes sick; be careful of who you give your time to

influence you. They should be dependable

because potentials can be sick and die!

5. Potentials can deliver opportunities: From the

cow, you can get wool, you can get meat and you

can also get milk! From the palm tree, you can

get oil, you can get wood, you can also get fruits!

Every living thing has the potential to produces

valuable things. Potentials are no exceptions. In

potentials, you discover the particular species of

gift you can deliver for the world. Diversity of

living things teach that each living thing belongs

to it’s own group; phylum, genus class, family or

what you may call, specifications! What are the

areas of specification where you can leave

footprints when you go? That determine the kind

of birth your potentials can bring forth. Potentials

can deliver opportunities!

Believe that you owe the world a birth of success.

Nothing should hold you back to achieve it.

Believe that your living potentials will not die and

live to make impacts that will make the world a

better place!
