In recent times, scientists carried out a research on why we as humans are subjected to rankings by the society; starting from joining school, to colleges and job interviews, life is a matter of being a better person as compared to the rest, that is, according to the scientists. Well, that is according to what the “world” believes; but what happens if you are not the better person expected in the society? Do you have to quit? NO! I say NO! You don’t have to quit.

When I was all depressed, I never took acceptance as a means of fighting. However, I met this friend, whom I a shared my troubles with. According to her, I lacked acceptance! Today if you have to make it all to a new level, you need to learn how to accept yourself as you are. This gives you the courage to face your problems. Once you manage to face your problems, psychologically, you find solutions on how to tackle these problems. Encourage yourself always, mark my words, encourage, but do not justify yourself; Problem is not a permanent Problem!

Reading gives your mind diverse ideas, which you shall need to be a smart person; mark my words once more “you shall need” not optional. Personally, for the past 10 years, I have been reading at least one topic on my busiest days!
7). Share with others
One of the toughest challenge I have had as a writer is creating time for my family and friends. It was hard but I did, why? I accepted my situation, practiced to learn new things and that way, I was able to share! Sharing helps you get help! Yes, it helps you get help! Once you share, it is no longer a secret for your mind and soul; it becomes an issue to the persons you have shared with and they will be willing to help you! For this matter, give the people you love time, learn to share with them, and this way, you will grow to be a better person. Furthermore, you will also learn to help others as they will have trust in you; it just makes life worthier to live.
6). Time Alone
Why was I created in the first place? Well, God had a purpose for me, a positive one for that matter. Sometimes, we need time alone with our God! Speak to him and ask him to show you your purpose. This way, you are able to define yourself to people, who at times, will not appreciate you, why? Because this is the world! Not everyone will appreciate, but you will appreciate yourself better if you know yourself in a definable manner.
5). Do Extra-ordinary things
What is so wrong with one day taking your bicycle to work? Nothing! Totally nothing! But the society has a set mentality that they must drive to work, hence if you are seen riding to work, it might capture the media’s ear/eye J:) The best thing about life is trying something new every day; however, it must be something which is impacting your life in a positive manner. This way, you will enjoy life and live to yearn for a tomorrow.
4). Note down your achievements
Ever wondered why trophies are made, or why they were invented? Well, their purpose was to act as a reminder of success. Each time you get to take note of an achievement you have made, you inspire yourself to do greater things! Let your achieved words/dreams be your trophies!
3). Have a schedule
Your president probably has the highest paying job in your country, not unless you are in business. His/ her mandates are clearly written as per the country’s needs. Each hour spent outside bed by the president is scheduled! Well, why not create a schedule, one which will define what you do? My schedule helped me to be a better person today! Learn and practice to follow your schedule always.
2). Nap Time
This is not a reason to be lazy! Do not misquote me 🙂 Getting a nap, at most 2 hours in a day, helps you refresh your mind and regenerate your physical energy. To-date, I take daily naps to ease my body and enhance my performance; furthermore, it makes me feel like a boss! Who wouldn’t love to have such a feeling?
Above all other things, always remember to pray to God for help and thanksgiving. Prayer helps you build a strong bond with God and be in a situation to face all troubles in life. I have learnt to pray and it has affirmed my life foundation!
With these 10 daily routines, you will be a great individual! I am happy to have shared an experience! Hope it creates a positive impact in your life; I shall be rewarded in heaven 🙂
