YOU CAN’T GO FAR IN LIFE MAINTAINING THE STATUS QUO……
Welcome to Divine-Royalty nuggets of Wisdom. Where there is no motivation people die enriching the graveyard. My quote said, Fear of what people will say, is the reason for your ordinariness, by Divine-Royalty. Honestly, i discovered that If you’re not pissing someone off, you are probably aren’t doing anything important. Meaningful achievements are, perversely, more likely to annoy the world around you.
When i was passing through training to be a minister after my life in the spirit seminar, My leader or coach use to take me along to minster but left others behind due to he discover something difference in me among others. But it was because of the price and hard training i was given myself after our general training privately according to the music that is playing in me. He saw others as not yet qualify but me as a champion, some among them became furious over this, and said something like, (he think he has arrive)
“Are you losing weight? “You should be happy with your own body!” Saving children in another country? “You should save your own country!” Curing cancer, “What took you so long?…..
Believe in yourself: Live by choice, not by chance. Make changes, not excuses. Be motivated, not manipulated. Work to excel, not compete. Listen to your own inner voice, not the jumbled opinions of everyone else. This is the way to inspire people! This is how you can grow into the best version of YOU! (Say i hear you!)
Wood and iron can never march. There are people who don’t want to do things and they don’t want to stay clear. When you try to raise, they become very angry. What do they want? Let us be at the same level. (They are not traveling and don’t another person to travel. ….
When I first started exploring new opportunities to find the right direction in my life, I found myself overwhelmed by the competition. There were so many others just like me trying to do what I was doing.
Turning to my friends didn’t offer any respite, because, instead of encouraging me to try new avenues, some of them brought me back to where I began. “Why don’t you be more pragmatic?”
With such seeds of self-doubt sown within me, it took me some time to recover my momentum. It was in the positive voices of so many others, in blogs such as this, in videos, and in social media, that I found encouragement to keep at it. It felt like these voices were talking about me.
And in that positive lens, I found the light inside of me to bring forward the resiliency that until then had lain dormant.
Whatever you do, you’re going to annoy someone especially the naysayers, the mentality of a champion and mediocre can never be the same and annoying someone can not be a good thing. Let me show you the virtue of being an occasional asshole.
Rule 1: There are more important thing than other people’ feelings
One of the reasons successful people can sometimes come over like assholes is because they’ve learned there are far more important things in this world than what other people feel….
No longer suppressed by someone else’s ideas of the way things “ought to be,” I continued on my newly discovered path. The more I focused on my own voice and the voices of encouraging friends, the more I grew to believe in myself.
Although for some, finding the right direction might require the journey of a lifetime, I do believe there is one direction in which we are all meant to go, forward.
By taking small steps each and every day, putting aside over thinking, and realizing that you have everything you need deep within, the Wisdom that created heaven and is residing into you, you are too big to be a failure, you can find the right direction in your life. And while it may not be the direction you expected, it will work out just fine.
Ending Slavery Important Than The Feeling Of People Who Like Slavery
Years ago, For African Americans in the South, life after slavery was a world transformed. Gone were the brutalities and indignities of slave life, the whippings and sexual assaults, the selling and forcible relocation of family members, the denial of education, wages, legal marriage, homeownership, and more. African Americans celebrated their newfound freedom both privately and in public jubilees.
But life in the years after slavery also proved to be difficult. Although slavery was over, the brutalities of white race prejudice persisted. After slavery, government across the South instituted laws known as Black Codes. These laws granted certain legal rights to blacks, including the right to marry, own property, and sue in court, but the Codes also made it illegal for blacks to serve on juries, testify against whites, or serve in state militias. The Black Codes also required black sharecroppers and tenant farmers to sign annual labor contracts with white landowners. If they refused they could be arrested and hired out for work.
Most southern black Americans, though free, lived in desperate rural poverty. Having been denied education and wages under slavery, ex-slaves were often forced by the necessity of their economic circumstances to rent land from former white slave owners. These share croppers paid rent on the land by giving a portion of their crop to the landowner.
In a few places in the South, former slaves seized land from former slave owners in the immediate aftermath of the Civil War. But federal troops quickly restored the land to the white landowners. A movement among Republicans in Congress to provide land to former slaves was unsuccessful. Former slaves were never compensated for their enslavement.
Family, faith, and education
Family, church, and school became centers of black life after slavery. With slavery’s end, black women often preferred to be homemakers, though poverty pushed many back into the workforce.
Black churches became centerpieces of African American culture and community, not only as places of personal spiritual renewal and communal worship but also as centers for learning, socializing, and political organization. Black ministers were community leaders.
African Americans’ desire for education found expression in the establishment of schools at every level, from grade schools for basic-education to the founding of the nation’s first black colleges such as Fisk University and Howard University. The Freedmen’s Bureau (1865-1870), a government agency established to aid former slaves, oversaw some 3,000 schools across the South, and ran hospitals and healthcare facilities for the freedmen.

During the period of Reconstruction, which lasted from 1865 to 1877, Congress passed and enforced laws that promoted civil and political rights for African Americans across the South. Most notable among the laws Congress passed were three Amendments to the US Constitution: the Thirteenth Amendment (1865) ended slavery, the Fourteenth Amendment (1868) guaranteed African Americans the rights of American citizenship, and the Fifteenth Amendment (1870) guaranteed black men the constitutional right to vote.
African Americans actively took up the rights, opportunities, and responsibilities of citizenship. During Reconstruction, seven hundred African American men served in elected public office, among them two United States Senators, and fourteen members of the United States House of Representatives. Another thirteen hundred African American men and women held appointed government jobs.
In 1870, Hiram Revels of Mississippi became the first African American man elected to the US Senate.
Led by Republicans in Congress, the federal government insisted on civil and political rights for African Americans in the face of fierce resistance by southern whites. Federal military occupation of the defeated Confederacy ensured African Americans’ civil and political rights.
The KKK and the end of Reconstruction
From the late 1860s white supremacists in the KKK (Ku Klux Klan) terrorized African American leaders and citizens in the South until, in 1871, the US Congress passed legislation that resulted in the arrest and imprisonment of Klan leaders and the end of the Klan’s terrorism of Americans for a time.
But over the course of the late 1860s and throughout the 1870s, the federal government’s military presence was withdrawn from various southern states, and with the Compromise of 1877, President Rutherford B. Hayes ordered the last federal troops in the South to withdraw.
With no troops to enforce the Fourteenth and Fifteen Amendments, Reconstruction was at an end. Across the South lynching, disenfranchisement, and segregationist laws proliferated. It would not be until after the Second World War and the 1960s Civil Rights Movement that Jim Crow segregation would be outlawed.
What do you think?
What economic, legal, and societal barriers did African Americans face after slavery?
Do you think that the federal government ought to have offered compensation—in money or land—to former slaves?
What accounts for the intensity of white race prejudice in the years after slavery’s end?
Why do you think education and the church were so important to African Americans in the era after slavery?
But my greatest joy is after the hole fight they are free and have equal right. It’s an uncomfortable truth. We’re raised to be nice, and for good reason. Niceness is safe. It’s excellent at maintaining the status quo. Nice people are conscious of what might upset others, and avoid such things.
Which is deadly if you want to accomplish anything of significance.
If your mission is to lead, create, or better the world, surrendering to the emotional concerns of others will paralyse and kill you. Leaders that can’t make tough decisions can’t lead. Artists that can never offend anyone can never delight anyone either.
This is not to say that being an asshole will make you successful. But an unwillingness to occasionally be one is an almost certain road to failure.
Rule 2: Hate is a side effect of impact, Most haters are stuck in a poisonous mental prison of jealousy and self-doubt that blinds them to their own potentiality. You goto do more exploit and give haters more thing to say!
As your actions impact more people, the less those people will understand you: Look around you and you’ll see three kinds of people – those who hate their work, and complain bitterly, those who just tolerate their work and see it as a paycheck and aren’t looking for more (or feel they can’t have more), and finally, those who love their work, and relish it. The third category is a small subset of all professionals globally, but this group stands out because these are, most often, the people who change the world for the better.
In my work as a success coach and writer, I’ve had the opportunity to connect with people who’ve made a true and measurable impact in the world, including well-known experts, authors, researchers, journalists, scientists, innovators, business geniuses, and entrepreneurs. But among this group of world influencers there are also everyday people who have found a special niche in which they’ve contributed at the highest level.
It’s critical to note that people who’ve made a real difference aren’t all privileged, advantaged or “special” by any stretch. Many come from disadvantaged families, crushing circumstances and initially limited capabilities, but have found ways to pick themselves up and rise above their circumstances (and their genes) to transform their own lives and those around them.
Thousands of people today don’t believe in meaning and purpose as something to discover or pursue in life. And others believe in a life purpose but won’t take the risk to identify or honor it. Those with positive influence feel otherwise. They have found that there is a purpose to their life, and that purpose usually involves some aspect of turning their “mess into a message,” or using what they’ve learned (often the hard way) as a means of being of service to others. People with a sense of purpose are driven, focused, committed, and lit up from the inside – unable to be deterred or distracted from what they believe is the reason they’re on this planet at this time. This sense of meaning and purpose gives them inexhaustible drive and offers guideposts to follow along the path. It informs them of what they wish to attend to in life, and what they need to walk away from because it doesn’t support their higher purpose. When i started what am doing now as a writer, coach and inspirational and motivational speaker, many hated me but now, my exploit has convince most of them.
If your biggest decision in life is to live in average life, no problem. But if you want to be a news maker like Abraham Lincoln who was the 16th president of the United States. He preserved the Union during the U.S. Civil War and brought about the emancipation of slaves. Abraham Lincoln is regarded as one of America’s greatest heroes due to both his incredible impact on the nation and his unique appeal. He is a remarkable story of the rise from humble beginnings to achieve the highest office in the land; then, before a sudden and tragic death at a time when his country needed him most to complete the great task remaining before the nation. Lincoln’s distinctively human and humane personality and historical role as savior of the Union and emancipator of the slaves creates a legacy that endures. His eloquence of democracy and his insistence that the Union was worth saving embody the ideals of self-government that all nations strive to achieve. Though he is dead now but still living. So, if you want to end up poverty or change the world in any way whatsoever you’re gonna have to cope with pissing off people entirely by accident.
Rule 3: Just because someone is offended, doesn’t mean they’re right.
I remember one day driving to work but late. The traffic was so slow making me angry as i am in a hurry. When my emotion want to run high i purse and think about it and remember some poor area in Africa where there is no traffic in control and how it use to be. Yes, The slow down of the traffic was pissing me off, but it does not give me the right to cross over it without green light.
Think back to a time when you were angry – say you were cut off in traffic. How intelligent were you when you were pissed off?
In April 18, 2016 – Comedian Ricky Gervais came out swinging in favor of freedom of speech this week while promoting his new Netflix show “Special Correspondents” at the streaming giant’s festival in Paris. The sharp-tongued comic known for his barbed stints hosting the Golden Globes said:
“You’ve got to be allowed to say things that (potentially) everyone might find offensive. I think offence is the collateral damage of freedom of speech. But just because you are offended doesn’t mean you’re right. The more famous you get, the more people love you and hate you. If you are doing anything that isn’t anodyne and watered down, you are going to polarise, but it’s good to polarise, because some people are smart and some people are stupid.”
Anger is an emotional response, and a spectacularly stupid one. It’s almost never in proportion, nor is it necessarily even just. It’s a fleeting impulse, like thinking a stranger is cute or preferring one colour over another.
And like any such impulse, the usual provocation for anger is association. Some people might hate WhatsApp, others hate Facebook. Some people are right wing, others left. Say something nice about one group, and you’ll ignite the primal rage in the others before they can stop to think. Pretty much everyone thinks like this, sadly, unless they’re trying really hard.
Which leads to a crucial conclusion, conforming to other people’s anger is caving to the most stupid part of their nature.
Be an asshole and ignore those, assholes.
The only way to avoid pissing people off is to do nothing important. Which leaves you with a choice, whether you like it or not: where will you settle on this scale?
Most of us fear upsetting the emotions of others. When we upset people, we’re compelled to justify ourselves. We yearn to win over our detractors. We seek everyone’s approval. And just one criticism among a hundred compliments burns into our brain like a Dubai sun during the summer.
That’s actually a good sign. It means you’re not really an asshole. Just don’t be afraid to act like one where it matters.
