6 Lessons You Can Learn From Robert Schuller’s Book: Tough Times Never Last but Tough People Do.

Published

on

The book, Tough Times Never Last but Tough People do, by Robert Schuller (A Christian Televangelist and Motivational Speaker) mainly discusses about how individuals can overcome obstacles.  The book gives you faith during hard times, and makes you stop worrying about your problems.

I read the book twice and I think it’s one of the most positive books I’ve ever read. I learned powerful lessons from it and I would love to share them with you.

  1. People who overcome obstacles never stop believing.

According to Schuller, a large percentage of the individuals who transcend their problems are those who never stop believing. These individuals often believe in themselves and The Creator.

They often pray for guidance, and they trust in the ideas the universe gives them. Lastly, they take action on their ideas while believing that their efforts will pay.

  1. Every Problem has a Limited Lifespan

Schuller teaches that no problem lasts forever because you’ll always find a solution.  According to Schuller, history is the best teacher on the fact that all our problems have a limited lifespan because all our past problems ended after a certain period.

Therefore, just like our previous hardships, our current hurdles will also come to an end.

Storms always pave way for the sun, and winter always thaws into spring. Your storm will, therefore, pass – Robert Schuller

  1. Every Problem will Change You

Schuller writes that an individual cannot emerge from a problem unchanged, because problems never leave us they way they found us. They make us stronger, and enable us to realize our faults.

In the book, he provides an example of a boring teacher who became a hard worker after being fired because he learned that his laziness was what resulted in him getting fired.

  1. Ask God/The Supreme Intelligence to Help you Solve your Problems

According to Schuller, whenever we have problems we must always give God/The Supreme Intelligence a chance to turn our problems into blessings. He teaches that God/The Supreme Intelligence will give you the strength to deal with your problem if you pray and stop exaggerating it.

  1. Problems disappear if we dedicate all our efforts to solving them

Robert Schuller teaches that some of our problems never leave because we fail to dedicate all our energies to solving them. According to Schuller, your problems will melt away if you use all your intelligence, abilities, and skills to solve them.

  1. Never Discard an Idea because There is Something Wrong With It

Robert Schuller teaches that there is no such thing as a perfect idea because all ideas always have negative aspects. However, we must never let these negative aspects prevent us from executing our ideas. Instead, we must focus on exploiting the positive aspects and try our best to sublimate the negative parts.

The Top 5 Amazing Takeaways from Yasmin Mogahed’s book: RECLAIM YOUR HEART

Published

on

Yasmin Mogahed’s book, Reclaim Your Heart, was written to free your heart from slavery and enable you to have a positive perception towards hardships. The book also reveals the importance of placing our hope in God and advises us on how to react when we fall.

Besides this, the book is inspiring and also easy-to-read. I learned several things from the book, and I believe it made me wiser.

Here are 5 remarkable lessons I learned from Yasmin Mogahed’s book.

  1. Pain Warns Us That Something is Wrong

According to Yasmin, pain is a warning that something is wrong and we need to make changes in our lives. For example, heart-breaks tell us that we are too attached to a particular person, and we need to let go of him/her. They force us to make internal changes.

  1. The importance of Hardships

Hardships purify our souls and move us closer to God. They also remind us about the Greatness of God, and how small we are compared to his greatness. Difficulties awaken us from our recklessness and show us where we are heading to. For this reason, we must embrace hardships

  1. Life is a Test

‘The present world is an illusory pleasure: you are sure to be tested through your possessions and persons’ – Yasmin Mogahed, Reclaim Your Heart

We must realize that Life is a test that God uses to bring us closer to Him. Besides this, we must see life as a test because this perception enables us to realize that we can learn something from everything that happens to us. Lastly, we must strive to realize how we can pass the test of life.

  1. The Importance of Fasting

Yasmin teaches that fasting enables us to control our soul’s desires because it makes us learn to restrain our physical desires. By learning to avoid eating food while no one is watching, fasting also trains us to avoid indulging in immoral activities when people aren’t watching.

  1. The Definition of Spiritual Awakening

Spiritual awakening occurs when you realize that you had a wrong perception of the world. For this reason, awakening enables you to have a truer and beautiful life. It makes you fully aware and makes you realize that you can do and have anything you want. Lastly, when you awaken, nothing from your past will matter.

I believe these lessons will be of help to you on the journey of life. You are welcome to share in the comment box below the lesson you think is the most valuable.

6 Powerful Lessons From Bob Proctor’s Book: YOU WERE BORN RICH

Published

on

In the article, 16 Powerful and Impressive Quotes from Bob Proctor’s Book, I shared with you my favorite quotes from You were born rich. Today, I would love to share with you the top 6 remarkable lessons I learned from this marvelous book.

  1. Money is an Effect of Hard work

No one got rich through luck because every rich person worked extremely hard to accumulate riches.

Besides this, there is no shortcut to riches, and for this reason, all individuals who want to make big money must be ready to do it the hard way.

  1. The Best Way to Attract Money is Through the Prosperity Consciousness

Always imagine that you have the amount of money you wish to possess. This imagination makes your subconscious mind comfortable with the idea of money hence making it attract the amount of money you desire.

Moreover, imagining that you have the amount of money you desire makes the subconscious mind to formulate ways to bring you the money.

  1. No Amount of Reading Will Make You Financially Successful

Books won’t make you rich because they only provide you with knowledge which is only effective if you practically apply it on the journey to financial success.

  1. Let Go and Let God

Everything becomes possible to those who Let Go and Let God.

To Let Go and Let God means to stop worrying about your future, and trust that you will get everything you need to reach your financial goals. It means trusting that whatever must occur for you to reach your financial goals will happen.

  1. Desire Without Expectation is Useless

Desire is necessary for the achievement of your goals. However, it becomes wishful thinking if not accompanied by expectation.

A strong desire must be coupled with expectation because an expectant mindset prevents negative opinions and ideas from uprooting your goal/dream.

  1. Give Away What You Don’t Need And You Will Get What You Need

Give away the things you don’t need to create space for nature to give you what you need because nature always fills an empty space.

Remember, ‘The Law of Prosperity states that new things only come when you let go old things.’ – Bob Proctor

Therefore, if you want anything, for example, new clothes, just give out all the clothes you rarely wear, and you will soon find yourself with new clothes.

I believe the above lessons will help us attract a prosperous life. You are welcome to add more lessons you’ve learned from life/books that can help us attract prosperity.
