Count Your Blessings!

Today is a great day for me.It's my Birthday, and am very happy to experience yet the beginning of another year.A promising one!
I was sitting in my room alone yesterday (after a stressful day at work), and was trying to ponder on all the things i did/achieved, or couldn't achieve since Nov. 27, 2006-Nov. 26,2007. And to my utmost surprise, i couldn't believe what i wrote down.The year actually ended on a great note, with a lot of great things attached. Before i started writing, i could not see those things i had achieved(BY GOD'S GRACE THOUGH), but after the list was completed, i started singing and praising God.
Well, i'm just trying to say that whatever the situation might be inlife, there's always a reason to be happy, and to thank God. Like my mentor Tope Ogunfayo wrote sometime ago on his blog :www.pastortea.blogspot.com, "Count Your Blessings, Don't Discount Them", we must always learn to count our blessings. The mere fact that you are living is enough reason to give thanks. Some people are not happy with thier present jobs, but you still need to thank God because there are a thousand and one people out there who would do anything to get that same job you are complaining about. So
Well, i am expectant that this year would launch me out!!!!!! Watch OUT!

Work Is What Works!

If you don't want to work, you have to work to earn enough money so that you won't have to work. -Ogden Nash

I see many people these days who see work as evil. It is simple, they are LAZY. I have come to discover that lazy people are never satisfied with what they have. They are the ones that want the promotion, but never want to work for it. They want more money, but never want to do more, learn more, or invest more, to earn more. What are they? LAZY!!!
One important secret to success and a healthy life is a good attitude towrads work. I would define W-O-R-K as Worthy Opportunities Rarely Known.

My Advice:
Work while you can, so you dont have to do more work later to survive.

We are what we repeatedly do; excellence then is not an act, but a habit.
Keep doing that thing you know will lead you to the actualisation of your dream.

Overcoming Nerves - In Public Speaking And Entertaining - Part 1

By: Johnnie Gentle
Many people often assume that those of us who stand up to perform or take part in any form of public speaking are not troubled by nerves and that their own attempts would only be doomed to failure because of their feelings of nervousness and fear.
These thoughts only exacerbate the feelings. When they do attempt to speak, their mouth goes dry, the hands begin to sweat, the stomach churns and a feeling of nausea takes over. Very often they begin to tremble and the brain seems to stop working.
In this confused state they just ‘freeze’ and yet another negative experience is added to their memory banks, with the certain declaration of – "Never Again".
First of all, we need to understand why we feel this nervousness. Let's face it, - we know we can speak; we’ve rehearsed and practiced well, the family thought the act or the tricks were great, or the speech was amusing, so there's really nothing to be afraid of there.
We've checked our 'flies', - so nothing to worry about in that respect. If you have prepared what you want to say and rehearsed your act well, then you should be 'home and dry' and it should be a breeze. I can assure you, if you have done the preparation, it will be a breeze, but you will still feel nervous.
During my entertaining days I suffered badly from nervousness prior to going on stage. As a matter of fact I still do to this day. My act always went down really well and I was inundated with bookings and re-bookings, so my confidence was always high. However, the nerves were always a nightmare prior to starting my act and I could never understand why.
An old experienced entertainer once told me that all good performers, whether in show business or sports performance or even academic or business performers, - feel nerves to varying degrees, and usually the higher standard of performance, - the greater the feeling of nerves and apprehension.
He explained that it's not the fear of not being able to perform, or of forgetting your lines, (or in the case of the sportsman, of not being able to run the race), it is actually the fear of not quite living up to your own high standards.
You see the good, conscientious performer sets his sights and standards as high as he possibly can, and so even as he improves, he keeps pushing his standards that little bit higher. You can therefore see why he will never free himself of these feelings of nerves and apprehension. It’s simply a concern that you will not live up to your own high standards.
So how do we overcome nerves? - Well, you don't. You simply learn to understand and nurture them as your friends and your guides, which help to ensure a really high standard of performance.
You could of course lower your sights, but this would surely lead to lowering your performance and eventually no performance at all. Yet, this is what most people do. They lower the standard of their performance, taking on only the easy stuff, the things they are confident they can do.
However, lowering the standard of your performance is not the way. It may just help decrease nerves, but it will eventually kill your performance completely. You see, when speakers or entertainers get a bad reception or "die", as we say, they very often never perform again. "Finished!"
