How to be successful in life

I think you’ll agree with me when I say:
Some people spend their entire lives wondering how to be successful in life, but never figure it out.
Would you be surprised to find out that the secret really comes down to four key areas?
Well, it does.
You see, personal success is achievable for anyone who practices the four areas – or keys to success as I call them.
Everyone wants personal success and to learn the keys to success. Everyone wants to have a happy, healthy life, do meaningful work, enjoy a career, and achieve financial independence. Everyone wants to make a difference in the world, to be significant, to have a positive impact on those around him or her. Everyone wants to do something wonderful with his or her life.
Over and over, I have found that the keys to success are a single piece of information, a single idea at the right time, that can change your life in the right situation. I have also learned that the great truths are simple.
If you can follow these tips, you will be able to take control of your life and achieve your goals.
We All Have One Common Goal
Luckily for most of us, personal success is not a matter of background, intelligence, or native ability. It’s not our family, friends, or contacts who enable us to do extraordinary things. Instead, the keys to success in life are our ability to get the very best out of ourselves under almost all conditions and circumstances. It is your ability to adapt and change your life.
You have within you, right now, deep reserves of potential and ability that, if properly harnessed and channeled, will enable you to accomplish extraordinary things with your life.
The Four Keys To Success
The great keys to success to change your life have always been the same.
1. Decide exactly what you want and where you want to go.
2. Set a deadline and make a plan to get there. (Remember, a goal is just a dream with a deadline.)
3. Take action on your plan; do something every day to move toward your goal.
4. Resolve in advance that you will persist until you succeed, that you will never, ever give up.
This formula is your key to success and has worked for almost everyone who has ever tried it. It will require the very most you can give and the best qualities you can develop. In developing and following these keys to personal success , you will evolve and grow to become an extraordinary person.
Learn How To Be Successful From The Experts To Change Your Life
You will not live long enough to figure it all out for yourself. And what a waste it would be to try, when you can learn from others who have gone before. In one of many great quotes, Ben Franklin said, “Men can either buy their wisdom or they can borrow it from others. The great tragedy is that most men prefer to buy it, to pay full price in terms of time and treasure.”
Your greatest goal in life and in personal success should be to acquire as many of them as possible and then use them to help you do the things you want to do and become the person you want to become.
For example:
If you want to learn how to write a book, you can follow a step-by-step process created by a bestselling author. Learn from their mistakes and benefit from their systems by following their guide to writing a book. It will save you time in the end!
Program Yourself For Personal Success
You will change your life by achieving just one
important goal , you create a pattern, a template for personal success in your subconscious mind. You will change your life and be automatically directed, and driven toward repeating that success in other things that you attempt.
This is the best way to get your life back in order.
By overcoming adversity and achieving one great goal in any area, you will program yourself for success in other areas as well. In other words, you learn to succeed by succeeding. The more you achieve, the more you can achieve. Each of the keys to success, especially the first one, builds your confidence and belief that you will be successful next time and achieve ultimate personal success.
Try to leverage your momentum from an achievement in your personal success to reach a goal in your career or at school. Eventually, you will create a synergistic effect and find that success comes easier on all fronts.
Unlimited Potential
The only real limits on what you can do, have, or be are self-imposed. Once you make a clear, unequivocal decision to change your life by casting off all your mental limitations and throw your whole heart into the accomplishment of some great goal, your ultimate personal success is virtually guaranteed, as long as you don’t stop.

Lossing Weight Won’t Be Possible If One Don’t Quit Consuming These 10 Foods

Of a truth everyone would agree that losing weight and staying in shape is one of the ways of leaving a healthy life.

So many persons however believes that the process of weight loss is a rigorous routine that is yielding little results than what is expected. Some people seem to be gaining weight instead of losing it even after staying faithful to their respective weight loss plan.

A saying has lasted in recent time that the secret to weight loss is in the kitchen. This means that for you to lose weight, you will have to watch what you eat irrespective of your current exercise program.

The kind of food you consume during the weight loss program and even after the program goes a long way in deciding how effective the weight loss program will turn out to be.

Particularly, few foods grossly undermine the efforts to lose weight loss. One needs to be mindful of what one eats when trying to lose weight.

Let’s examine 10 foods to avoid during weight loss.

1. WHITE BREAD.

Bread, particularly white bread and multigrain bread are full of carbs. Bread is highly refined and densely filled with calories. Particularly, the multigrain bread is so misleading. Also, bread is full of added sugar and high in glycemic index which likely to cause in the increase of blood sugar levels defeating the purpose of weight loss. So, it’s better to stay away from white bread and reach your weight goals.

2. FRUIT JUICES.

Any fruit juice, whether it is homemade or found in the shelves of a supermarket, it doesn’t contain the essential fibres. Because of its delicious and great taste, you are tempted to drink a lot in a short time. There your weight loss goal is lost as well. Apart from that, most of the supermarket juices are full of sugar and preservatives as well. This adds nothing to body system but calories.

3. FULL CREAM MILK.

Full cream milk is highly loaded with fats. It is best suited for making desert but not for daily consumption. If you are aiming to lose weight you better stick to toned milk which has 2% of fat.

4. SALADS WITH HEAVY DRESSINGS.

Salads are in fact very good in promoting overall health, as few foods are best consumed in the raw form so as to optimally utilize the naturally occurring nutrients. But the salad dressing and the salts used in the salads to make it tasty defeat your diet goals. These are not only full of empty calories but also have added preservatives. The salts increase sodium levels and blood pressure.

5. FRUITS HIGH IN NATURAL SUGARS.

It is recommended that one should eat 3 to 4 servings of fresh fruits for a healthy weight and for weight loss. But not all the foods aid in weight loss. In fact, a few fruits like Mangoes, Papaya, Banana, etc are full of natural sugars, which may undermine your efforts to shed a few kilos.

6. POTATO CHIPS AND FRIES.

Well, it is obvious that potato chips and fries are a big no if you want to maintain a healthy weight. So, it’s common to suggest to avoid these when trying to lose weight. Studies have proved beyond doubt that chips and potato fries cause the weight gain. Hence they should be altogether discarded.

7. ALCOHOL.

 

Alcohol is full of empty calories. Anything of alcohol, whether it is red wine or malts whisky, for that matter the brewed beer all of them cause weight gain. Even if you take in moderation, one ends up consuming more than 1000 calories a month, means weight loss is impossible.

8. PASTRIES AND COOKIES.

Pastries and cookies are made with refined flour, coupled with the fact that they have added sugars for the improved taste. These tasty foods also have transfats. All of these make the foods a serious no for weight loss foods.

9. ICE CREAMS.

Well. Ice creams tempt anyone, whatever may be the season, ice cream after a meal is the best thing that can ever happen. But what we should understand is that the delicious taste of ice cream is as a result of sugars. A small portion of ice cream consists of many calories. Also, it is tempting to eat more. The problem with ice cream as a dessert is we have already had more calories as anything above meal is extra.

10. PIZZA.

Yes, everyone’s favourite pizza is also under the say no to foods for weight loss. Pizzas are made with refined flour. Whatever the healthy names they may give it in the stores. Another unhealthy ingredient found in pizza is the processed meats. So, in the nutshell, pizza is full of empty calories and food to be avoided for weight loss.

What’s your take, which do you think you can’t just do without?

MAJOR REASONS WHY YOUTHS AND A NATION AT LARGE SHOULD INVEST IN AGRICULTURE

 

What type of career do you aspire to have? Do you want to be an artist, a business person, or a policymaker?

Or, have you ever wanted to become a farmer? I would not be surprised if you said no.

When weighing career choices, many young people in the developing world tend to shy away from agriculture. I, too, once found myself disenchanted by the small villages and rice fields I grew up seeing every day. As the conventional belief goes, agriculture means an archaic lifestyle and a future with limited opportunities for youth.

But I later learned I was wrong. Plenty of evidence shows us that agriculture provides youth a viable way to harvest success and grow a sustainable future. In other words, I believe youth can, and should, choose agriculture.

Here are five reasons:

1) Agriculture matters to the future of development.

When it comes to fighting poverty, agriculture is more effective than other sectors.

Agriculture is up to four times more effective than other sectors in reducing poverty. Increasingly, the world is counting on agriculture to produce more nutritious food for — and improve the livelihoods of — a booming population, especially the poor. What could be more meaningful than being part of a proven solution to such a critical challenge?

2) Agriculture can be a gold mine for young entrepreneurs.

Gourmet Products Sustainably Produced in Senegal

Randa Filfili, a young entrepreneur from Senegal. She is also the first Senegalese producer who saw value in the fruit of cashew trees that others had considered waste, and turned it into “niche” jam products for export. Through agribusiness, Randa has not only carved out a successful career of her own, but also helped local farmers reach global markets, and create jobs for other young people — especially women. So, the next time you come across Randa’s all-natural cashew apple butter in your local produce store, think about how you can also start up a business in agriculture to help both yourself and the rural poor.

3) Agriculture is not cool? Think again.
Innovations for Transparency

In Uganda, a young team with the World Bank and UNICEF used a mobile and web-based app called “U-Report” to swiftly help 190,000 farmers save their bananas — a staple food for Ugandans — from a vicious disease. Countries like Kenya and Rwanda are also eager to boost productivity through information and communication technologies and other creative solutions. Agriculture in the developing world has become a field vibrant with effective innovations, thanks to a growing number of young techie minds that make it happen.

4) Agricultural research needs young brainpower.

Transforming Agriculture in Eastern Africa

If you are a “young nerd” into development research, agriculture may be the right place for you. Numerous stories from East Africa and other places have shown tha t research revolutionizes agriculture and transforms livelihoods. Today, more than before, climate change and a growing demand for nutritious food are for fresh ideas and renewed knowledge to explore ICT in agriculture, foster climate-smart agriculture and innovate in the sector to power future growth.

5) The trend of youth choosing agriculture is growing.

Attitudes toward agriculture are already changing. In Cameroon, where agriculture is becoming more competitive, young educated Cameroonians “have decided to become farmers, acquire land, grow maize professionally for trade, and manage their enterprises in order to earn a living,” according to Félix Nkapemin, an agricultural expert working with local farmers. Other countries like Armenia, Brazil, Malawi, and Senegal are investing in youth and agriculture with the support from the World Bank Group and other development organizations. Young people are also increasingly speaking up for themselves on why they choose agriculture.

The trend is growing. Support for the agriculture sector is increasing. The list of reasons is endless.
