Everyday when you wake up just go to the mirror and look at yourself and say, ” I can.” Don’t look down on yourself. God has purpose for your life that’s why you are still breathing today. The reason why you are living today is because God has plan for you.

Before you wake up each day, just thank God for life, don’t worry about anything, you will never die broke and poor. God will lift you up to higher places at the right time. Always have a positive attitude about yourself. Tell yourself that you will make it in life and be successful. If you always have negative attitude things will turn bad for you.

The words we speak are not disappearing in the air but kept to confirm tomorrow, like I said before if you speak negatively the Devil will take place to control your life, but positive words will make God to confirm what you have spoken. Because positive words link together with faith.

Another reason to stay positive is to write your goals down and stay motivated. Write your goals down and read them aloud everyday. Sometimes the words we speak block our blessings. They also say that, you reap what you sow. Good trees brings good fruits, bad trees brings bad fruits. It’s true when they says, “if you say I can’t,” you are right, you can’t. If you say, ” I can,” yes you are right, you can. You get whatever you sow.

Get out of your comfort zone and work hard to achieve your goals. Don’t wait to get motivation to do something just start now. The ball is in your hands, it’s up to you to score or miss a goal. Go around and search for ideas and apply them in your life.

When I started writing career in 2011 I didn’t have motivation to start, my friends and cousins were laughing and discouraging me. Because they take it as joke and that time I didn’t have a smartphone I was using exercise book to write my poems and short stories. Guess what I kept writing and I didn’t give up on my writing career. They kept laughing at me saying, that ” I,m joking, I will never be a writer, so without motivation and encouragement I didn’t stop writing until today. Today you are reading this article at my blog Because I didn’t give up. I told myself that ” I can ” don’t give up on your dreams , whatever dreams you have just believe in yourself and say, ” I can.”

Today I run a successful blog because I believe in myself in whatever I do. James cagehot says, ” what one man can do, another can do as well.” Don’t listen to everything people say and lose hope and focus. God will not give you a burden you can’t handle. If you find yourself in a mess that seems impossible to handle, take it as compliment and steps to greater things, I have been there many times.

It’s true what the late Nelson Mandela said, may his soul rest in peace.
He said, ” there’s no easy way to get things, no easy walk to freedom anywhere, and many of us will have to pass through the valley of the shadow of death again and again before we reach the mountain top of our desires, even if it is hard never give up. Failure is the opportunity to begin again.
