How Continuously Dwelling On Negative Emotions Might Prevent You From Getting Promoted.

Published

on

Negative emotions are natural and unavoidable because they have a purpose. For instance, pessimism enables you to take precautions while anxiety reminds you that you are not living in the present moment.

Therefore, negative emotions are always there to give us a certain message, and for that reason, we must never ignore them.

However, we are not supposed to succumb to negative emotions. Dwelling on negative emotions has negative effects, especially at the work-place.

When you succumb to negative emotions, they show in your outer life. In simpler terms, as within, so without. What is in the inside will eventually show up on the outside. Therefore, if you often succumb to negative emotions such as jealousy, anger, sadness, and hate, your boss or manager will be able to detect these emotions, and trust me, he won’t risk putting you in a leadership position because he fears that you will not be able to manage the position.

Companies often promote to leadership positions, those who can work with a team, inspire their subordinates, and make effective decisions, and they know that a person full of hate, fear, depression, or worry cannot do such things.

Assume you are the owner of a huge company, and you really want to get profits out of it. Will you risk giving the managerial position to a sad, angry, fearful, and worrisome employee? I guess no, because you would need a team player, or an enthusiastic, and confident person, who has the ability to firmly direct and work with his subordinates. For that reason, you will never risk giving such a demanding position to a person who is always in a state of negative emotions no matter how hard he or she works.

Sometimes we wonder why we miss a promotion despite our hard work, experience and academic qualifications. In some incidents, it’s because we display emotions that show our seniors that we are not eligible for a leadership position.

Therefore, don’t carry your personal issues to your workplace. The boss does not care if your spouse cheated on you. He does not care if your dog, goldfish, or lizard died, or if your child failed miserably at school. He only cares about his profits and those who have the ability to increase them.

That being the case, add enthusiasm, joyfulness, vigor, and passion to your hard work, years of experience, and academic qualifications, and the boss will not fail you. Assume you also own the company, be happy while working, and don’t let your personal issues get in the way of climbing your corporate ladder.

Lastly, assume you are an employer and be the employee that you would love to promote.

5 Awesome Benefits of Becoming ‘Unmaterialistic’

Published

on

A materialistic person is an individual who is too attached to money or material possessions.

After studying prosperity for the last three years, I realized that materialism is one of the main factors that make people fail to achieve success because it leads to excessive spending.

For this reason, unmaterialistic people have high chances of succeeding. You become unmaterialistic when you stop prioritizing the ownership of material possessions.

Being unmaterialistic can be very advantageous because of the following benefits it will bring upon you.

  1. You stop being scared to follow your passion

There are high chances that you’ll be broke for a while if you follow your passion because it might take long before you monetize it. For this reason, it will be hard to follow your passion if you are materialistic as you won’t withstand being broke and unable to buy things.

However, if you become unmaterialistic, you will bravely follow your passion because you can afford to be broke, and you can also live with little material possessions while trying to monetize your passion.

  1. You invest in productive ventures

A lot of us complain that we don’t have money for investing or starting businesses, but the funny thing is that we have lots of money to buy expensive gadgets. Our obsession with material possessions has resulted in us prioritizing the buying of products. Today, people can spend $ 1,000 on a TV set and still complain that they do not have money to start a company/business.

If you end your obsession with buying material possessions, you will realize that you have a lot of money to invest. Trust me, the money you spend on buying the latest gadgets is enough to start a million-dollar company.

  1. You stop comparing yourself to others

People who love comparing themselves to others are often materialistic because their main basis of comparison is usually money and material possessions. They look at their friend’s cars, or houses, and compare them with theirs so that they determine their social positions.

Therefore, you will lose interest in comparing yourself if you are not excessively concerned with material possessions.

  1. You become less worried

If you become unmaterialistic, you worry less because you won’t be attached to too many temporary things. Materialistic people worry more because they often think about the possibility of losing their possessions.

Besides this, the fact that material possessions are temporary makes materialistic people worry about how they will replace their possessions when they become obsolete. Lastly, materialistic individuals often worry about their social positions, and how they will increase their possessions.

  1. You become grateful

Materialistic people are seldom grateful because they are never satisfied with what they have. They are always looking for the next gadget to buy that they fail to be thankful for what they have.

However, if you become unmaterialistic, you will always be thankful because you will often focus on what you have instead of concentrating on what you don’t have.

Concluding Remarks

Avoid prioritizing material things and you will be one step ahead because you will bravely go your own way, and you will have extra money to invest in your dream. Besides this, you will attain a peaceful state of mind because you will stop comparing yourself, and you will be less worried. Lastly, you will be happier because you will be grateful for what you have.

The Top Four Incredible Factors That Determine The Size of Your Dreams/Goals

Published

on

The size of your dream greatly determines what you will achieve in life.

Small dreams will ensure that you achieve small things while big dreams make you achieve big things. All individuals who made major achievements had big dreams.

Recently, I asked my friends and family members about their dreams, and I realized that we all have dreams but some of us have small dreams, while others have big ones.

For instance, some of my friends dream of changing the world. Others dream of becoming presidents, and wealthy businessmen. Conversely, others just want to own an average home, and live an ordinary lifestyle.

Besides my friends, I asked many other people about their dreams, and I realized the same thing: not everybody has a big dream. I, therefore, conducted a research on the world’s most influential people, and I tried to pinpoint the things that made them dream bigger.

I also checked my dreams, my state of mind, my life experience, and I managed to realize the main factors that determine the size of our dreams.

Here are they

  1. Information

Information greatly determines the size of your dream.

You will have big dreams if you read books about successful individuals, and how they achieved their dreams because they will make you realize that anyone can achieve big dreams.

Reading books that teach success will also make you set big dreams because the books will enlighten you on how to set and achieve big things.

People with limited information about success set small dreams because they don’t realize that great achievers were ordinary people from normal and even poor family backgrounds.

  1. Self-esteem

Self-esteem refers to your sense of personal value.

If you place a high value on yourself you will set big dreams because you’ll believe that you can achieve them. Besides this, you will ensure your dreams are big because you’ll believe that you deserve big things.

However, you’ll set small dreams if you have a low sense of self-worth because you will believe that you are unworthy of big dreams.

  1. Action

It also dawned on me that the amount of effort you invest in your career greatly determines the size of your dream.

In 2010, when Derrick Rose, a basketball player, was asked if he could be among the top players of the league, he said that he believed he will be the Most Valuable Player of the League because he worked so hard in his career.

For this reason, the amount of effort people invest in their careers greatly determines the size of their dreams. People, who work so hard, believe that they can achieve big dreams because action breeds faith.

  1. Age

When we were children we had very big dreams. For instance, I remember one of my friends, Collins Githinji, dreamt of having a football field in his living room. You think his dream was big?

I dreamt of building a house on the moon, and I was serious about it. I could get really mad if anyone told me this dream was impossible.

Anyway, the older we grow, the smaller our dreams become because we come face to face with ‘reality.’ We adopt negative belief systems and limited ideologies that make us lack faith in big dreams.

Furthermore, when we become older, we set smaller dreams because we believe that it’s too late for us to achieve big dreams. Little do we know that we can set and achieve big dreams at an old age because people like Harry Bernstein, and Gladys Burrill, became successful in their 90s.

Concluding Remarks

If you have big dreams, good for you. However, if you have small dreams, please start reading self-development books such as The Magic of Believing, and The Science of Getting Rich. These books will make you set big dreams because they show you how and why it’s possible for you to achieve anything you want.

Moreover, you will also start believing in big dreams if you work hard, and improve your self-esteem because hard work and a high self-worth will make you believe that you deserve the best.

Lastly, don’t let age make you avoid dreaming big. People have made it in their 60s, 80s, and even 90s.

Thank You So Much for Reading.
