Life is the most precious gift you should never waste. Aside from that,  I have summarized below top 5 things we should never waste because once it’s broke. It will never be retrieve as perfect as it was.

How you spend your day will directly affect your life in a long run. Your habits and your daily routine will determine whether you’ll be a success or failure. Whatever choice you make, make sure you’re not wasting your life.

Listed below are the top 5 most precious assets we have. Don’t waste a single bit of it.

TIME

“Your time is limited. Never waste it living someone else life” – Steve Jobs

One important thing you should not waste is TIME. Today the average life span of a typical person is 25,550 days or 70 years, too short as compared to the times of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.  But some died early; others live longer than 70 years old. Whatever your life span be, make sure you’ve provided value for others.

Make your mark on this earth!

You should also accept the fact that you are going to die someday. It will eventually come no matter how you avoid it. Live each day as if it was your last so you will value everything you have.

Jim Rohn said, “TIME- we all have limited supply. Life is not just a passing of time. It is collection of experiences”.

Another said, “Don’t say you don’t have enough time. You have exactly the same number of hours per day that was given to Hellen Keller, Pasteur, Michaelangelo, Mother Teresa, Leonardo da vinci, Thomas Jefferson, and albert Einstein”.

How about you? How do you treat TIME?

Being busy doesn’t mean being productive. Being busy watching television and playing video games the whole day is not productivity, it’s a waste of time. I have seen people who always blame the government, their parents, and even their neighbors of their poverty, but never do things that will change their situation. That is stupidity. Change yourself first and your environment will eventually change. Stop blaming someone of your misery.

Balance everything out of your hectic schedule. Proper scheduling is the key, schedule time for your family, business, and leisure.  Don’t mix them.

Never take time for granted. You cannot turn back the hands of time so make the best out of it.  You should count your age by quality not by quantity.

How I Overcame My Fear Of Blogging?

Facebooktwittergoogle_pluspinterestlinkedintumblr

The FEAR of failure is the number one killer of SUCCESS in your blogging journey. It paralyzes your entire mind and body; it has the ability to stop you do greater things. It can cause you to stumble and stop dreaming.

We all fear something. No one is exempted! Written below are some of them:

  • Fear of Rejections
  • Fear of failure
  • Fear of Death
  • Fear of Criticisms
  • Fear of the Future
  • Fear of the Unknown

I have lots of them! Listed below are my fears – the reason why it took me years before starting my blogging journey:

  1. The Fear of Criticism – I am so defensive, easily angered and over- sensitive, a single criticism can crash my spirit.
  2. My husband and parents only do traditional business. They never believe in working online. To them, blogging is just a waste of time and effort. I never got their support.
  3. I always question myself, “what if I fail?” My savings might be at risk.
  4. What will I tell my friends if I failed? They might turn their shoulders away from me and tell me, I’m doing crazy things!
  5. My English Sucks – I only knew basic ones
  6. I don’t know how to write a professional content. Mine is just a simple one.

The FEAR of FAILURE took me 7 years before starting this blog – the blog I always wanted my whole life. That fear hindered me from believing in myself and my ability to showcase my talent and passion to the world.  Lots of wasted hours but I had gained so much knowledge that I can apply and contribute to the world.

I love blogging… I really do! The love of it pushed me to read and research more, in fact, I’m spending 2 to 3 hours daily, researching, learning and reading blogging tips, tricks and strategies. I bought a lot of books, downloaded eBooks and watched blogging tips on YOU TUBE to learn and gain more knowledge.

And here comes my blog. After so many doubts, Fears and discouraging words, I had the Guts to start my blogging journey!  I think I am ready for a big Launch…

“No guts, No Glory!

I don’t care anymore if people will criticize me, saying I’m not good enough, that my English Sucks… 7 years is enough to feed my Fears… I have to do something for myself and nothing and no one will ever stop me from growing!

I WILL NOT GIVE-UP! I WILL NOT GIVE-IN…That is a PROMISE!

Note: I am not a SUCCESS guru but I read a lot.  And made sure I practice what I read!

Without further Ado, let’s start listing!

  1. FACE YOUR FEARS

You cannot totally eliminate Fear; it will always be there so embrace it. Never allow it to ruin your day. Your ability to face it will give you the real courage to move one step ahead.

Example:

  • Your fear of getting fat will push you to work out even if you are in bad mood.
  • The fear of failing your exam will push to study hard.
  • The fear of losing your job will push you to wake up early and go to work even if it’s raining
  • The Fear of financial instability is your number 1 reason why you save for the future
  • The fear of losing your business will push you to work harder and longer than your competitions

SEE?  Act despite of fear!  Feel the fear but never let it stop you!

  1. MAKE A PROMISE TO YOURSELF

Your promise and self- affirmation will help you eliminate self-doubt. This will give you hope to act despite of fear.

Every time I encounter discouragements, I always go back and read my promise to myself!

MY PROMISES:

  • I will not Give up no matter what the odds may be
  • I may be pressed but never will be crushed
  • I will make this blogging journey is a beautiful experience
  • I will make this BLOG succeed to its greatest heights
  • I will read more to become more
  • I will help others to get what they want
  • I will never take criticisms personally – It will not stop me from achieving the things that I am intended to do
  1. JOURNAL EVERYTHING

Identify what causes your fears. What’s the worst case scenario that could happen if you fail? If it will not KILL you, it shouldn’t FEAR you!

I commonly used a sheet of paper. I divide it into two: On the left side I figure out what causes my fears, on the right, the possible solution for each case. I also journal my daily blessings so I’ll be grateful for the things I have.

  1. SEE THE VISION

Be like eagles, they see great distance.

What will happen to your BLOG 5 years from now? If you can’t see SUCCESS, the obstacles will always be there to frighten you.

And a SUCCESSFUL blog was accompanied by a great SACRIFICE. It was a part of a PROCESS.

  1. SWITCH YOUR FEAR INTO WISDOM

Knowledge will be your best revenge. If you know everything – no force, no power, no criticism will ever put you down.

I have the fear of standing in front of the crowd, my whole body shake. And I have to be perfectly ready. If you know what you’re saying, no power will stop you.

Knowledge can give you outstanding confidence!

And always remember, everybody has FEARS; the only difference is that, they act despite of fear, they feel the power but they never let it ruin their plans.

  1. PRAY

Prayer I say is the most powerful thing I do when confronted with FEARS. I feel God’s embrace when I pray. I feel more secure when I kneel down in prayer.

Prayer has the power to eliminate negative feelings and emotions. It has the ability to move mountains.
