Stop over thinking.

Over thinking is the art of creating problems that do not even exist. Are you lost in thought? Are you disturbed? Come off it. Over thinking is not the next sensible step to take. To overcome over thinking just,

  1. Take a nap.

Just sleep it off. Forget your worries. When you’re asleep, 70% of everything in your brain gets off.

2. Be positive.

A positive mind is all you need. Always look at the good side in everything and remember that your tongue is powerful so if you proclaim evil into your life then •••••

3. Be prayerful.

In everything you want to do, put God first whether you’re a Muslim or a Christian. Tell all of your problems to God and remember to thank him for what HE has done already.

4. Control your worries.

We all have worries but they shouldn’t be getting to us. We should learn to defeat our worries instead of them defeating us.

5. Have a to-do list.

When you have a list of whatever you want to do, you’ll not have to think about it whenever you cannot remember. A to-do list is very important because it saves stress and makes you act according to the way you’ve planned.

6. Avoid impulse buying.

Sometimes you get engrossed by some things during shopping and you feel you need them. No matter how beautiful or important it is, overlook it so you won’t overspend. When you overspend then you will start thinking of how to get money for the important needs you haven’t fulfilled.

6. Trust God.

When you ask God for something, he gives you three answers
A. Yes.
B. No.
C. Wait.
Whichever one HE chooses is the right one for you. Just trust God.

7. Don’t get anxious.

Anxiety is another stepping stone to over thinking. When you are anxious about something, you feel like all your dreams should come true at that point in time. Stop being anxious no matter how happy you feel, you will be restless, hence, over thinking comes in.

8. Obey your conscience.

When you are being forced to do what you don’t want to then your conscience judges you. You end up over thinking because you have a bad feeling about the decision you took.

9. Be happy.

No matter what the problems are, just try to be happy even if it is fake .🤔

10. Stop wishing, have a purpose.

Inspiration #183 says great minds have purposes, little minds have wishes. If you’re still thinking about life being a fairytale that everything you want becomes fulfilled, your name should be sorry. Life isn’t perfect so we should live with the imperfection and stop wishing instead you improvise.

Self Confidence; The Foundation Of Great Success And Achievement.

Not everyone has to like you because not everybody has taste. When no one believes in you just tell them to watch you while you change their thoughts.

Even introverts have to be confident because when you are silent without confidence you begin to lose your self esteem. Believe in your strength because confidence breeds strength.

When someone tells you it can’t be done,it is a reflection of their limitations, not yours.

One of my inspirational quotes says self confidence is the best outfit, own it and rock it. Be able to express yourself anywhere you are, never feel that anyone is higher than you in any way. When you believe you are below someone in any way(status, growth and so on), your foundation of success is not standing on a solid ground. Another inspirational quote of mine says that if you look at those that are ahead of you, you will never have enough but if you look at those that are behind you, you will always have more.


Don’t be afraid to fail. Failure is another stepping stone to greatness. You can read my post Failure is not the end. Just like Thomas Edison, His teacher said he was too stupid to learn. He tried to build a bulb 9999 times but the experiments didn’t work but the 10000th time, everything worked out. Everything worked out because he was confident, he believed in himself and didn’t let failure overshadow him.

FAIL means first attempt in learning and END means effort never dies.


Thomas Edison inspired me and let him inspire you too. Don’t stop believing in yourself even when others have stopped believing in you. Dutchll also made me know that Thomas Edison is credited with the saying,

I haven’t failed, I just found 10,000 ways that won’t work.


Being confident doesn’t mean you have to be like another person.

Be yourself because an original is worth more than a copy.


Being confident doesn’t mean you have to compare yourself with other people.

Just let people see the real,imperfect and magical person you are.


Do what you love, say what you want but be wise about it. Don’t say because you are expressing yourself then you can hurt another person by the words you speak.


Stop self doubt.

When you doubt your power, you give power to doubt.


Know your worth.

There are some people who can kill your confidence but another quote says when you feel like quitting, remember why you started.

Be too glamorous to give a damn. Don’t give a hoot about whatever anybody says.

When you know your worth, you’ll find it harder to stay around people who don’t.

Just let go.

Sometimes, you just have to stop caring about being liked by people. Don’t say ” Will they like me? ” just say ” I’ll be fine if they don’t ” . It is not possible for everyone to like you, not everyone liked Jesus so why do we have to care. A proverb says If one knows the mind of his partner, they will be no friends in the world. That’s true because you don’t know the mind of the person close to you. Some people might act as if they like you but they don’t, all they do is pretend. You don’t have to care about little things that matter, at times. Cause they can cause a lot of problems later, just let everything go, be it impatience, sadness,in satisfaction e.t.c.

I will like to share a short story with you, enjoy.

IF I HAD KNOWN.

Now that you’re going to the university, make sure you face your studies and don’t keep friends, Ava’s mum told her as they were packing her baggage. Remember the more you want to climb the ladder of success, the lesser you have friends Ava continued. You’ve told me this over and over again mum, Ava said. I just want this to be your watchword her mum interrupted.

First day in the university as a fresher, Ava had to survive alone without her parents, she was given a room where she had to live with three other room mates. Two had carry over’s while the third is also a fresher. Little did she know that she was living with — ,story for another day.

She got to know them for some while and concluded that they were nice. She finished the first semester and had gone home for the holidays.


Second semester began and Ava thought she had good perfect room mates so she confided in them. Unfortunately, one of her roommate, Alexis, is the sister of the head of the cultists.

Oh my God, I’m not happy about this project I’ve written and I don’t think the lecturer will like it at all, Ava said. I think the project is perfect, McQueen, Ava’s roommate said. No, it’s not up to my standard, Ava said. If you have a problem with your project, my brother can help you with that cause he is a brilliant project writer, Alexis told her. All you have to do is to go to his room for tutors. Does it have to be his room? McQueen asked. I think its a good idea to have the tutors alone with him, Alexis said. I’m on Alexis side, Ava replied.


(Knock)(knock) Who is there, the Capone of the university asked. Its Ava, your sister’s friend, she answered. He quickly brought out the juice he kept in the fridge and inserted some sedatives into it so she can fall asleep. He then opened the door for her to enter. I need you to help me with my project, Ava said. Okay, at first let me get something for you to drink he said. Guys, to cut his story short, that was how he drugged her then raped her. She was infected with HIV. He fled out of school leaving her ruined and all accusations didn’t seem to be true because according to the school register, he had been rusticated for over two years already. Ava ended up submitting the project she wrote and then she realized it was the best out of the rest. She left her parents disappointed and she had to drop out due to the embarrassment.

She fell into this trap because she trusted friends, she cared too much about everything and couldn’t think of the afterwards.

Just let go of your worries, don’t care about every minor thing that just happens. Not everyone wishes you well, they just want your lives to turn out like theirs. Sometimes the story might not be in this form but anyhow it may be, learn to keep calm and let go. Thanks for reading.

Be yourself unapologetically.

Yeah. You are not everybody so you don’t have to act like everyone, you don’t have to do what everyone is doing. Be unique, stand out.

At times we do all these because we want to be on point, be on clique and all of that but trust me you don’t need it. Sometimes, when we’re out there, we have to act with class, its normal for a good manner but we do not have to be unrealistic about it. You don’t have to be fake. BE YOURSELF, everyone else is taken.

BE YOU.

Happiness begins when one is contented.

We all want to attain a certain position and height but are we satisfied with the position we have attained? Are we satisfied with the height we have reached? Contentment is natural wealth, luxury is artificial poverty ~Socrates.

Do not spoil what you have by desiring what you don’t.

Ann Brashares.

Even the bible says in the book of

Philippians 4:11-13 Not that I speak from want, for I have learned to be content in whatever circumstances I am. I know how to get along with humble means, and I also know how to live in prosperity; in any and every circumstance I have learned the secret of being filled and going hungry, both of having abundance and suffering need. I can do all things through Him who strengthens me.

Be thankful for what you have, you’ll end up having more but if you concentrate on what you don’t have, you’ll never have enough.

Oprah Winfrey.

1 Timothy 6:6-12 But godliness with contentment is great gain. For we brought nothing into the world, and we can take nothing out of it. But if we have food and clothing, we will be content with that. People who want to get rich fall into temptation and a trap and into many foolish and harmful desires that plunge men into ruin and destruction. For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil. Some people, eager for money, have wandered from the faith and pierced themselves with many griefs. But you, man of God, flee from all this, and pursue righteousness, godliness, faith, love, endurance and gentleness. Fight the good fight of the faith. Take hold of the eternal life to which you were called when you made your good confession in the presence of many witnesses.

He who is not contented with what he has would not be contented with what he would like to have.

Socrates.

The word CONTENTMENT is a state of happiness and satisfaction. We should all learn to be happy with whatever life brings to us and we should learn to harvest in it not seek for more. Unless we learn to live with the moment, we are not fully alive.

If life gives you lemons, turn them into lemonade.

There is more to life than having everything.

Maurice Sendak.

Wealth is like the sea water, the more we drink, the thirstier you become ~ Arthur Schopenhauer. We should never let the things we want make us forget the things we have. Also, we should never wish for whatever anyone has because you do not know the source where it is from. Let’s learn to be happy with ourselves because happiness is self contentedness ~ Aristotle. Develop the ability to enjoy what you have instead of being driven by desire.

Be contented.

Those who are contented are the happiest.

WASTED!

I heard a gunshot,

It sounded like a broken pot,

It brought me to a spot,

Where i had to squat.

I saw a man wearing a polka dot,

He had a blot

And a blood clot on his hand.

He tried to save the injured tout

But it was all for a naught.

Fortunately the policemen arrived,

But the polka dot man was deprived

Of the explanation he had to provide

So he could survive.

He tried to say there was someone disguised

But he wasn’t justified

Because one of the policemen was a personalized mastermind.

I was so horrified,

In fact mesmerized,

My heart was occupied,

Then i realized

Someone has to be assigned

To find the person behind the wasted tout who died.
