BEING SUCCESSFUL IN LIFE
BEING SUCCESSFUL IN LIFE
There was once lived a man, Called success, had two Son
He is so famous and wealthy that everyone wishes to see him all around world wants to see him, because he always blesses everyone who pays him a visit.
There are always crowd of people, the needy, even the rich every day, So he did something to stop a lot of people from coming to him,
Anyone who want to come to him must meet his two sons, the name of the first son is Dream, and the second son is Goal. Anyone who want to meet success have to meet Dream first, then Dream will introduce them to Goal and goal will introduce them to the father.
A lot of people left Dream and just move straight to Goal, but they weren’t able to see success, for anyone to meet success, he needs to meet Dream first Then goal.
It’s painful that a lot of people in life wish to be successful in life but they are idle in life, they are not doing anything, they are wasting their time, they aren’t realistic about the fact that the way to being successful in life is The good usage of time.
You cant eat your cake and still have it again, you can’t use your time like many people use their time and still expecting to have an achievement, expecting to be better than them in life, if you use your time the way the unsuccessful people use it, you will end up being not successful.
Time is life, life is time, unlike people say “time is going” time has never for once go anywhere, our life is what is going, the time is only there to help us calculate how we have make good use of it or how we have wasted it, if not for time, we wont have been able to be aware that we have wasted our life till we start seeing grew hair on our head.
Oxford dictionary defined dream as “ Imaginary event seen in the mind while sleeping”
“creating an imaginary event”
“having a hope or wish”.
Imaginary event seen in the mind while sleeping
When a man is sleeping, all the organ in his body relax, including the brain, the muscles and even the mind. This is when the mind can start to imagine things that are not yet In reality.
For someone to have a dream in life, you have to sleep “which mean”
1. You have to get a quite place
2. Relax your self
After that, then you can go on your dream.
Now it time to dream
Self realistic:- self realistic is the ability to know yourself, its like getting access to the manual of who you are, this will really help you to achieve success in life, what is the essence of being in life, being ignorant to all things around you, even to yourself, even if you wont know anything under the planet earth, if you can know your self, you will know about other things around you and you will know how better to interact with things around you in the right way that it won’t affect who you are. Self realistic include the following thing.
i. Discover your weakness
ii. Discover what best gives you joy
iii. Discover what motivate you most
iv. Discover what you are good at.
v. Discover the people that motivates you when you are with them
vi. Discover the people who always discourage you when they are around them.
If all this above things are not done in your life, you might end up achieving nothing in life, and end up saying, have wasted this year again when it is DECEMBER. A lot of people don’t know their weakness in life, so they are walking in the environs of what is killing them, likewise a lot of people don’t know what motivate them, and also, if you don’t figure our what you are good at doing, what you can do all day without being tired of it , how can you choose the right career in life?
There is different between what motivate you and what you are good at doing, Messi/ c.ronaldo might love be motivated by listening to music or dancing, but if they have been a musician, they might not be successful because is not what they are good at doing.
CREATING AN IMAGINARY EVENT
After self realistic, after knowing who you really are, then its time to create imaginary event. Its time to begin to see
i. Who you want to become
ii. What you want to become
iii. Where you want to be in the nearest future
Now you can start having a hope or wish
The above step have already make everything easy, we are already on the way to, Goal before meeting Success

(he did not just make a man, he has a reason for it, (THEY WILL RULE OVER ALL THE LARGE ANIMALS AND THE LITTLE THINGS THAT CRAWLS ON THE EARTH)
ü Being in life without a goal is as going to a place of unknown without knowing any plan of where you are going and what you are going for.

TYPES OF GOAL
I. Goal to fail
II. Goal to succeed.
i. Goal to fail: This might sound so funny, but the fact is that everyone on this planet has a goal, someone who does fail to plan a goal has already plan to fail, a lot of people that have nothing good to talk about their life at the time of their old age, people can boldly say that they had wasted their life also have a plan to fail. The secret of life is that everyone has a goal, either to fail or to succeed, when others are planning to read their book when you are still in school and you decide not to read is a goal, they set a goal to read so as to achieve success in their academics but you set a goal not to read and use the time for something else, so that you can achieve failure. And so it happened, you failed woefully In your exam.
ii. Goal to succeed: This is the best goal to set in life, as it guarantee our achievement in life but it is not that easy at times, and a dream without a goal on how to come true is useless.
