Cherish and Respect Yourself

If you don’t want to be addressed with derogatory terms, stop using them for yourselves. For instance, some people of African descent would address themselves as nigger, some people of European descent would address themselves as cracker, some women would address themselves as bitch, and some men would address themselves as stud – just to mention few. But when someone who doesn’t belong to those groups use those terms, the in-group individuals get offended. In a nutshell, socially constructed derogatory terms are useless and demeaning to humanity. ‪Due to this reason, everyone should stop using those terms whether you’re entitled to say it or not. Finally, you must know your worth as a human being and respect yourself by calling yourself good names, then others will respect you.

Shine Your Light

To be successful in life you must believe in yourself, accept yourself for who you are and do your things in your own way. Only by admitting who you are is the best way of achieving your goals. Eliminate self-doubts and self-limiting thoughts, as they will take you nowhere but draw you back from finding your potentials and reaching your goals. Embrace challenges in life and deal with them accordingly, from them you will learn and they will make you stronger. Reject all outside negativity and people who always try to discourage you or tell you that “you will never be good enough.” The fact is that you have just as much potentials as any successful individual in the world. You’re born to be great and you’re also the master of your own destiny, all you need is that self-motivation to unleash your inborn potentials. Now is the time to shine your light and eradicate all forms of negative people and circumstances which are hindrance to your success.

Humanity Has No Colour

Some people have the understanding that the concept of race begets racism, and despite that knowledge, many people still cling onto that erroneous, meaningless, and devilish concept which was created by supremacists and imperialists. The concept of race, as it stands, is more abstract, but it keeps causing concrete havoc for humanity, as the categorisation of humanity through race remains the root of all segregation, hatreds, and evils among human beings. The segregation created by the concept of race give rise to the stratification of human beings, despite the fact that all human beings share a common genome. Thus in this incorrect and meaningless categorisation process, human beings are categorised into groups based on their physical appearance and skin tone. That vile idea was devised by the imperialist Europeans, when they claimed to be civilising the world through colonisation. To use Europeans and Africans for example, the European colonisers labelled themselves “whites” and labelled Africans “blacks.” How improper and brutish is such concept? In fact, it makes no sense at all. According to general understanding, melanin is the core factor which determines the skin tone of human beings, and their outward phenotype is determined by the environment. As a matter of fact, no human being is “white” or “black” when consider humans natural skin colour. But this idea of “white and black” has become ingrained in many people’s minds, which is why some people are proud to be white or black.

Moreover, there is a speculation that European colonisers must be colour-blind to come up with that incorrect concept of “white” and “black.” Whereas, the hidden fact is that, there are other meanings pertaining to that colour categorisation concept. Whiteness is a symbol of purity, justice, truth, and virginity. White defines what it means to be civilized, modern and human. Blackness, however, represents ugliness, sin, darkness, and immorality. Black also means dirty, prohibited, and funereal. Even in many Dictionaries, the synonyms for white or whiteness are of positive connotations. While the synonyms for black or blackness are of negative connotations. In addition, the dictionary definition of white is clean and pure, that is why a white lie is excusable; and black lie is inexcusable for it is awful. Besides, according to European belief, evolution itself moves from black to white. Even the Merciful God is white, with a bushy beard and bright pink cheeks. But, why should black people be worshipping the white God?

In this sense, it is clear that Europeans have many reasons of claiming to be white, as they know it have positive connotations. But why would Europeans label Africans as black, when they know it have negative connotations? Is that not a pure awful and evil deed, or could that be cleverness of the Europeans? But then again, why would many Africans identify themselves as black, when in fact they are not black? Also, what is the reason why many Africans are proud to be black, when they know all the negative connotations of black? Could it be ignorance, or how they have been psychologically conditioned by the European colonisers? On the whole, the concept of human categorisation based on colour is, in fact, erroneous and it is not all-inclusive. Just for the sake of argument, if Europeans are white and Africans are black, what colour are the Arabs in North Africa and Middle East? What colour are the Persians, Asians, the Indigenous peoples of the Americas and Australia? Finally, what colour are the biracial people?

Life is the Best Teacher

As a student of life, I have learnt many life lessons and am still learning. These lessons are usually life circumstances—either good or bad—and through these lessons I have gained various experiences. My knowledge is based on the facts and ideas that I have acquired through life experiences. But as a lover of wisdom, I usually utilize reasons to discern and judge which aspects of those knowledge are true, strong and important, and applicable to my life. In this article, I will mention few but great lessons that life has taught me through experiences, which you all might found useful in your endeavours as well.

Can Do Will Do – CDWD

CDWD

Can Do Will Do mindset will increase your productivity and prepare you for success. At times it can be daunting to complete a task or attain a goal. A perfect example is when you’re striving to complete a given task, or when you’re striving to achieve your Big Hairy Audacious Goal. In any process of achieving a goal or completing a task, you definitely need motivation. And for you to get the needed motivation to get things done, you must change your “can” to “will”.

The word “can” is all about potentials, which are things you can possibly do. When it comes to motivation, the word “can” is considered feeble when used in first person. However, the word “will” is all about courage, meaning you can achieve the impossible with determination. “Will” is an influential word when used in first person, as it will keep your creative juice flowing and keep you motivated always as you’re working towards your set goals. By and large, the moment you change your “can” to “will”, you will stay motivated and start achieving the impossible.

The Case For God

I seek the One True God in all way possible to an extent I keep discovering myself instead. All ways I walked during my search for God keeps leading back to myself, repeatedly. Then, I discover that God is all around me, I can see and feel it. God is the Universe, its contents and Nature. Nature, other creatures, and humankind are parts and pieces of the One True God, which makes us gods in our own right. Therefore, in any religion you practice seek the truth, God is in the detail. God is also the laws and forces of Nature, laws of Nature which are the principles which govern the natural phenomena of the Universe. Forces of nature are natural phenomena that are beyond humans control and which no one can be held responsible, that is the reason why they are called the act of God.

The Strong Eagle

. . . I once knew one resilient eagle which lived on a land in the centre of the earth. He was hatched in a nest on a rocky mountain surrounded with dense rainforest. He was a nest-dweller and observer as a chick. Sky became his playground the day he learned to fly. When other birds get drenched during rainfall, He’d soar above the clouds to evade the rain. He has experience some amazing phenomena of Nature.

He chooses to associate with the sky lords, the great flyers. His sharp eyes, sturdy beak, durable wings, and tough claws were specially made by the Creator. He’s not easy to be tamed or caged, he’s just a dissident of a bird. He hunts his food, while other birds waited to be fed. He forms no alliance with parrots, peacocks, or bats.

He has fallen repeatedly, but always pick himself up off the ground. He believes in his wings not on the twigs. He is a watcher that spectates how his own life evolves. He always embrace his second self whenever it appears. He keeps soaring higher into the ether regardless of its colour and condition.

He always soar higher to retain his head above the clouds, where he can experience the sublime through the panoramic view of the earth. He remains the most resilient eagle during his lifetime, then he left this world behind one day. He spreads his wings and soar into the upper most area in the sky, to experience eternal bliss in the place beyond time and space . . .

Persist Until Something Happens (PUSH)

PUSH

Persist Until Something Happens mindset will increase your productivity and prepare you for success. Staying motivated is easier when things are working out good for you, and you’re seeing immediate positive results at the same time. However, things can be difficult when you’re not getting desired results, but all you need in such situation are courage and hope; that’s where the concept of PUSH comes in. You must be courageous to be optimistic, and when you’re expectant, success is already yours in all your endeavours. Remember how the law of attraction works, the body achieves what the mind believes, and the best method of putting that maxim to work is channelling your psychic energy towards your own intentions.

The best method of taking over the ownership of life is to master the art of living and be persistent in all your endeavours in life. Remember, persistence beats resistance. You must learn the art of optimism, consider failure as an opportunity to grow, or success in disguise. Utilize setback as an impetus to attain success and start seeing your glass as half-full. Though, it takes impeccable courage to persist and be expectant in the face of adversity, but once you have the courage to be optimistic, victory is yours.
