CHAMPIONS STRATEGY TO SURVIVE HARD TIME
Welcome to DivineRoyalty nuggets of Wisdom. Where there is Motivation, People suffer mental hobo. Vision gets the dreams started. Dreaming employs your God given imagination to reinforce the vision. Both are part of something I believe is absolutely necessary to building the life of a champion, a winner, a person of high character who is consistently at the top of whatever game he or she is in. On a night without moon or stars you can’t see a thing, but you can imagine anything. Reality means you live until you die, the real truth is nobody wants reality, The only difference between a suicide and a martyrdom really is the amount of press coverage, Ability to deal with difficult situations or events during tough times that may change your lives and the life of others is what makes you an innovator, loss of a job, serious illness, failure in business, death of a love one, robbery or serious accident or other such events are very challenging life experiences. Many people react such circumstances with a flood of strong emotions and a sense of uncertainty. Our ability of adapting well or bouncing back from difficult life experiences in the face of adversity, trauma, tragedy, threats, or even significant sources of stress such as family and relationship problems, serious health problems, or workplace and financial stressors and adapt well over time to life-changing situations and stressful conditions is a natural and in built mechanism in all human beings, This ability always varies from person to person depending upon their behavioral traits and existing circumstances, Often such “difficult life situations or tough times’’ affects deeply at psyche level than physical body. A bad relationship, poor self image, a history of abuse, stress, frustration and many other factors can change your overall attitude towards life which may directly impede your overall performance. Such tendencies are deep-rooted in mind and nurtured by excessive Negative Emotions, Economic collapse can lead to a breakdown of society and mass food shortages. Severe drought or weather, natural disaster, or a man made catastrophe like an Environmental Management Plan can also bring on food shortages, and famine, followed by starvation. Millions go hungry, Countless people die, A famine that experts believe could be a direct consequence of a widespread disaster, economic collapse, or even a nuclear terrorist attack, which is a growing risk today to many parts of our world, but that which does not kill you will make you stronger, Here is what you will do.
PAIN IS PART OF LIFE AND LOVE, AND IT HELPS YOU GROW, The reason of glowing with pride is armature or low experience of life, when shall you stop living your life for people and become whom you are?, that is why you live under packaging suffocating inwardly, because when people notice that you are financial imbalance etc, they will mock you, and you keep on existing for your imagination about people who gossip around and not the real you, now wresting to this, hate me for who I am than to love me for who I am not, that which does not kill you makes you stronger, there are forgotten truths to help you through hard time, Ecclesiastes 7;2, It is better to spend your time at funerals than at parties, The wisest, most loving, and well rounded people you have ever met are likely those who have known misery, known defeat, known the heartbreak of losing something or someone they loved, and have found their way out of the depths of their own despair, These people have experienced many ups and downs, and have gained an appreciation, a sensitivity, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, understanding and a deep loving wisdom, People like this aren’t born; they develop slowly over the course of time, Truth be told, when hard times hit, and the challenges you face are great, you can either let your situation define you, let it destroy you or let it strengthen you, The choice is yours to make, but I want to remind you of a few powerful, yet easily forgotten truths that will help you choose wisely and grow stronger even through the hardest times, So many of us are afraid of ourselves, of our own truth, and our feelings most of all, We talk about how great the concepts of life and love are, but then we hide from both every day, We hide from our truest feelings, Because the truth is life and love hurt sometimes, and the feelings this brings disturbs us, We are taught at an early age that all pain is evil and harmful, Yet, how can we ever deal with real life and true love if we’re afraid to feel what we really feel? We need to feel pain, just as we need to feel alive and loved, Pain is meant to wake us up, Yet we try to hide our pain, Realize this, Pain is something to carry willingly, just like good sense, Because you can only learn how strong you are when being strong is the only choice you have, It’s all in how you carry the things that don’t go your way, That’s what matters in the end, Pain is a feeling, Your feelings are a part of you, your own reality, If you feel ashamed of them, and hide them, you’re letting the lies of insecurity destroy your reality, You should stand up for your right to feel pain, to endure it, to own your scars, to deal with the realities of life and love, as you grow into the strongest, wisest, truest version of yourself, many has lost their integrity because of pain avoidance, your integrity is whom you are, no pain or challenges has ever last forever.
BATTLE OF THE SUBCONSCIOUS MIND, If anything challenges is too big in your mind, It will be too difficult for you to confront or handle, but if it is too cheap in your mind, it will be easy for you, There can be no great courage where there is no confidence or assurance, and half the battle is in the conviction that we can do what we undertake. It’s okay to have down days and tough times, Expecting life to be wonderful all the time is wanting to swim in an ocean in which waves only rise up and never come crashing down, However, when you recognize that the rising and crashing waves are part of the exact same ocean, you are able to let go and be at peace with the reality of these ups and downs, It becomes clear that life’s ups require life’s downs, In other words, life isn’t perfect, but it sure is good, Our goal shouldn’t be to create a perfect life, but to live an imperfect life in radical amazement, To get up every morning and take a good look around in a way that takes nothing for granted, Everything is extraordinary, Every day is a gift, Never treat life casually, To be spiritual in any way is to be amazed in every way, Do not let the pain of a situation make you hopeless. Do not let negativity wear off on you, Do not let the bitterness steal your sweetness, Even though others may disagree with you, take pride in the fact that you still know the world to be a beautiful place. Change your thoughts and you change your reality, And mindset is especially powerful when it comes to accepting that, When there is no light amongst the darkness within your existence, when your wounds cry out to be healed, when fear has held courage ransom, when your soul stands in solitude and loneliness choking on its tears of isolation under a moon which no longer smiles and no longer yearns to gaze at his children, the stars, when all those around you have betrayed you, when love has left your heart and refuses to return, When you no longer believe in yourself, when pain and grief are your constant companions, when there is no vision within the mists of your agony, when no one is willing to listen to and understand you, when peace seems to be in a distant world, when life no longer has the belief to run within your veins, when you have become a fugitive within your own mind and shackled like a slave within your own insanity, refuse with every last drop of sacred blood within your bruised and battered body, to surrender your soul to the pains of your existence, You must believe in yourself even if all those around you doubt you and in your ability to rise from within the insanity in which your life now finds itself and to stand tall against the obstacles and challenges within your life-and you will conquer all that you believe cannot be conquered and all that which you believed you had lost within your life, It is from the darkest hours of our lives, from the depths of our despair and pain and in our greatest hour of adversity that we find an inner strength, an inner courage and an inner meaning so vast that it enables us to rise from our knees and stand tall and fight that which has made us weak, Just as water runs from a stream, as the oak tree grows strong and upright, as snow the softest and most peaceful of natures elements-covers the most fierce of mountains and tames its anger portraying it merely as a pawn within the hands of nature so new life and meaning will emerge from your own inner source, Do not at any cost surrender your life to the weaknesses within your life. Do not surrender your life to the mediocre thoughts of others, do not surrender the belief you hold in yourself and in your abilities, do not surrender the dreams that you have worked so hard to hold within the palms of your hands, For what right do others have to judge another’s dreams for they have not walked a mile in your shoes! There are no limits to your courage and determination. The only limitations are those that we place upon ourselves. Our thoughts make the world what we want it to be, Mold your thought into a weapon of immense power, Wipe away the tears from your heart and let your life be brushed by the fingertips of your immortal soul, breathe deep, with purpose and a deep held conviction. There is an inner strength and an inner peace within us all, which the world cannot penetrate and the hypocrisy and ignorance of the human mind cannot poison. Embrace that inner source of strength and you will become fearless and the obstacles within your life will seem insignificant, You must be undisturbed and stern in your resolve that you are a creature so versatile and resilient that you cannot be defeated and you must hold firm in the conviction that you will not be defeated. You are a creature of boundless beauty and perseverance, You are a creature which can and which will endure, There is nothing that you cannot achieve and there is nothing that you do not have the ability to overcome within your life. Harness the power of your mind for it is your greatest barrier, You are an individual of immense courage within the battlefield of life and there is no greater battle than that which will be fought with your own life. You must not, despite the pain, the despair, the grief, the intensity, the loneliness within your life, surrender the very essence of your dignity and hope to the enemy which hovers around you in pursuit of conquering both your mind and your soul, I do not believe in defeat because defeat does not believe in me, defeat does not come to those who believe in God but to those who are quick to rebel against God, I do not believe in fear for I am fearless. I do not believe in pain for I find strength in the weaknesses of my enemies. Within the mist of your despair and the obstacles and challenges that life presents before you be calm and peaceful. An angry and misguided mind will make decisions and judgment based on haste and anger which in the long run will continue to merely add to your suffering whereas the peaceful mind within that moment of insanity will have the ability to bring forth a clear, reasoned judgment and solution to the challenges at hand, No one owns you so you have not lost anything. Only you can give away or surrender all that you hold to the challenges within your life. Control your mind from its aimless wandering within your own insanity-guide it to think positively and with purpose. Once you have conquered your mind you will also introduce yourself to an inner peace, which will bring meaning and a freedom to both your life and thought, Do not kneel before anyone for your knees were not made for such purposes, they were made for the purpose of enabling you to stand upright! Be like an elephant, which once upright will not easily be brought to its knees! Adapt your mind, thinking, actions and life to the challenges, which have surrounded your existence, You and you alone hold the foundations of your dreams and your destiny in the way you approach the challenges and obstacles within your life. Do not falter in the face of adversity, rise to the challenge however difficult it may be, Your difficulties will only be difficult if you believe them to be difficult, How can you fear that which you have never challenged? Endure and challenge the pains of your existence for freedom will wait for you and it will eventually embrace you, In defeating the challenges within your life continue to be a good person, do not become like your enemies for to do so will deprive your soul of the peace it desires, You must be like the seasons of the year ever changing, ever adapting, ever growing, and ever challenging. Nature is always in constant change, the old give way to the new, and this is the course of life. Yet within this existence life continues, it evolves and continues to grow despite its pains, Your time has not yet come to let nature embrace you in its totality, so go forth into the wilderness of your life and reclaim what mother nature granted you at birth, the right to dream, the right to live and the right to be who you want to be. Challenge with the might of your mind and your inner strength all the barriers that your existence places at the gates of your destiny, if you don’t fight for what you like, what you don’t like will automatically take place!, If you don’t risk anything, you risk even more! For within the midst of our suffering there is a meaning.
STRENGTHEN YOUR FAITH WITH YOUR GREATEST FEAR BECAUSE YOUR GREATEST FEARS DON’T REALLY EXIST. Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate, Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure, It is our light not our darkness that frightens us, We ask ourselves ‘who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented and fabulous?’ Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small doesn’t serve the world. There’s nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us, it is in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same, As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others, Says “Marianne Williamson” When times are hard, it can be difficult to follow your heart and take another step, but it’s a tragedy to let the lies of fear stop you, Although fear can feel overwhelming, and defeats more people than any other force in the world, it’s not as powerful as it seems, Fear is only as deep as your mind allows, You are still in control. So take control!, The key is to acknowledge your fear and directly address it, Fight hard to shine the light of your words upon it, Because if you don’t, if your fear becomes a wordless, obscure darkness that you avoid, and perhaps even manage to briefly forget, you open yourself to future attacks from fear when you least expect it, Because you never truly faced the opponent who defeated you, Do not forget that life is like a fight, if you don’t fight for what you like, what you don’t like will automatically take place, You CAN beat fear if you face it, Be courageous! And remember that courage doesn’t mean you don’t get afraid, courage means you don’t let fear stop you from moving forward with your life, “Adversity is a Destiny Helper in disguise” by “Ifeanyi Eze”
YOU ARE GROWING THROUGH EXPERIENCE, The chains That keep you bound to the past are not the shares of Reviews another person. They are your own anger, stubbornness, Lack of compassion, jealousy and blaming others for your choices. It is not –other That people keep you trapped; it is the role of victim Entitled That you enjoy wearing. There is a familiarness to enjoy bread That You Because You get a payoff from it. When you figure it out what is That payoff Then You will finally be on the road to freedom, says Shannon L. Alder Over time you will find That Life Is not Necessarily Any Easier or harder than you thought It was going to be, it’s quele just easy and the hard aren’t exactly the way You had Anticipated, and do not always Occur When You expect ’em to, This is not a bad thing, It makes life interesting, With a positive attitude you will always be pleasantly surprised, When you stop expecting things to be in some way, you can appreciate Them for What They are, Ultimately you will Realize That life’s greatest gifts are Rarely wrapped the way you expected, Experience is what you get When your do not plan go as planned, and experience is the Most Valuable commodity you own, it builds your strength, You have the power to turn your wounds and worries into wisdom, you just-have to do something about ’em, You have to accept What Has Happened and use what you’ve Learned to step forward, Everything you’ve Experienced HAS Given you the upper hand for dealing with everything you-have yet to experience. Realize this and set yourself free.
YOU CAN’T CHANGE SITUATIONS YOU DON’T TAKE RESPONSIBILITY FOR. The price of greatness is responsibility, My biggest dream is that my words will inspire heart, and I continue digging deep in knowledge to equip myself, responsibility is attack the evil that is within yourself, rather than attacking the evil that is in others, If you take responsibility for yourself you will develop a hunger to accomplish your dreams, Sigmund Freud once said, Most people do not really want freedom, because freedom involves responsibility, and most people are frightened of responsibility, Don’t let this be you, Freedom makes a huge requirement of every human being, With freedom comes responsibility, For the person who is unwilling to grow up, the person who does not want to carry is own weight, this is a frightening prospect. (John F. Kennedy said, In the long history of the world, only a few generations have been granted the role of defending freedom in its hour of maximum danger, I do not shrink from this responsibility – I welcome it, When you blame others for what you’re going through, you deny responsibility you surrender power over that part of your life, Make no mistake, in the end, the price of happiness IS responsibility. As soon as you stop making everyone and everything else responsible for your happiness, the happier you’ll be. If you’re unhappy now, it’s not someone else’s fault, Ultimately, your happiness depends on your self-reliance your unshakable willingness to take responsibility for your life from this moment forward, regardless of who had a hand in making it the way it is now, It’s about taking control of your present circumstances, thinking for yourself, and making a firm choice to choose differently. It’s about being the hero of your life, not the victim.
DEAL WITH THE PRESENT, Give up defining yourself – to yourself or to others, You won’t die. You will come to life, And don’t be concerned with how others define you. When they define you, they are limiting themselves, so it’s their problem. Whenever you interact with people, don’t be there primarily as a function or a role, but as the field of conscious Presence. You can only lose something that you have, but you cannot lose something that you are, Life is not lived in some distant, imagined land of someday where everything is perfect, It is lived here and now, with the reality of the way things are, Yes, by all means you can work toward an idealized tomorrow, Yet to do so, you must successfully deal with the world as it is today, Sometimes we avoid experiencing exactly where we are because we have developed a belief, based on past experiences, that it is not where we should be or want to be, But the truth is, where you are now is exactly where you need to be to get to where you want to go tomorrow, So appreciate where you are, Your friends and family are too beautiful to ignore, Take a moment to remember how fortunate you are to be breathing, Take a look around, with your eyes earnestly open to the possibilities before you, Much of what you fear does not exist. Much of what you love is closer than you realize, You are just one brief thought away from understanding the blessing that is your life, Happiness is a mindset that can only be designed into the present, It’s not a point in the future or a moment from the past; yet sadly, this misconception hurts the masses, So many young people seem to think all their happiness awaits them in the years ahead, while so many older people believe their best moments are behind them. Don’t be either of them, Don’t let the past and the future steal your present.
THERE IS ALWAYS SOMETHING TO BE THANKFUL FOR, No one who achieves success does so without the help of others, The wise and confident acknowledge this help with gratitude, Feeling gratitude and not expressing it is like wrapping a present and not giving it, I would maintain that thanks are the highest form of thought, and that gratitude is happiness doubled by wonder, A Great Man said, Gratitude turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos into order, confusion into clarity, it makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow, Life is better when you’re smiling, Being positive in a negative situation is not naïve, it’s a sign of leadership and strength, You’re doing it right when you have so much to cry and complain about, but you prefer to smile and appreciate your life instead, What if you woke up tomorrow with only the things you were thankful for today? Think of all the beauty that remains around you, see it and smile, Be thankful for all the small things in your life, because when you put them all together you will see just how significant they are, At the end of the day, it’s not happiness that makes us thankful, but thankfulness that makes us happy.
GREAT THINGS TAKE TIME, Instant results are rarely the best results, With patience, you can greatly expand your potential, If your desires were always fulfilled immediately, you would have nothing to look forward to, You would miss out on the joys of anticipation and progress, Remember, patience is not about waiting, it’s the ability to Keep a good attitude while working hard for what you believe in, It’s the willingness to stay focused, confidently staking one small step at a time, knowing that the way you move a mountain is by moving one stone at a time, Every stone you move, no matter how small, is progress, Bottom line, You deserve more than mere instant gratification, Value that arrives in an instant is often gone in an instant, Value that takes time and commitment to create often outlives its creator YOU, The value of anointing is the price you pay before getting to a certain level, if not you will cheeping it, That is why I always tell you that anointing is not cheep, also, the value of money is the price you pay or the suffering you pass through before having it, not just people dashing you money, and that is why those who make money through shortcut don’t succeed with it, like the fraudsters, armed rubbers, etc, I know of a brother who branch out to take the work of God to the next level as a result of God’s calling to his life and people bombarded him with all manner of word to an extend that everyone tune against him, some predicted and work for his down fall but the brother knows very well that his dream is giving unto him, but not to people and hold unto it, but now God is making name for himself, it is a true life story to encourage you to stand focus holding unto your dream envisioning the desired future, knowing that greatness does not come easy but with perseverance, you gonna get there, Am going banana over you because I see you landing as a pathfinder.
YOU ARE NOT ALONE, In the midst of hard times, it’s easy to look around and see a bunch of people who seem to be doing just fine, But they’re not, We’re all struggling in our own way, And if we could just be brave enough to open up about it, and talk to each other, we’d realize that we are not alone in feeling lost and alone, So many of us are fighting the same exact battle alongside you, We are all in this together, So no matter how embarrassed or pathetic you feel about your own situation, know that there are others out there experiencing the same emotions, When you hear yourself say, I am all alone, it’s just your worried mind trying to sell you a lie, There’s always someone who can relate to you, Perhaps you can’t immediately talk to them, but they are out there, If you’re feeling desperate right now, hear me, I Divine-Royalty often feel and think and struggle much like you do, I care about many of the things you care about, just in my own way, And although some people do not understand us, we understand each other, YOU are not alone!, The wisdom that created heaven and earth is residing into you, you are too big to fail in this life! One of life’s greatest gifts is the fact that life is difficult. Because in dealing with life’s difficulties, we build invaluable strength, This strength enables us to successfully fulfill our deepest, most meaningful purposes, It is precisely because life is difficult that we are able to make it great, It is because life is difficult that we are able to rise above the difficulties, (i have book coming out soon, rise above discouragement) We are able to make a difference and we are able to truly matter, So remember this! When times are tough, you must be tougher. Don’t pray for an easy life, pray for the strength to endure a tough one that leads to greatness, If Gold didn’t pass through fire, it may end up something els. Joseph champions mentality promoted him to the level of prime-minster and gave survival to humanity. You will succeed!
