After reading many self-help books, I realized that many Great Thinkers believe in the existence of this Higher Power/Supreme Intelligence we call God. Brian Tracy, the famous motivational speaker, refers to this Power as the Super-conscious mind. Wallace D. Wattles, the late American author, calls it the Thinking Substance. These individuals believe that trusting this Power is essential for a successful life. Besides great thinkers, my parents and teachers have always stressed on the power of believing in God.
That being said, I always wondered why so much emphasis is placed on believing in God. However, after I started my journey towards greatness I started believing in God because I realized the following:
- God Exists
The primary reason why you must believe in the existence of a Highly Intelligent Higher Power is that it exists. God is real folks.
I have never read any philosophical explanation that convinced me that God doesn’t exist. Atheists claim that life came from nothing. They argue that things just found themselves on this planet. This is bullshit because life cannot come from nothing. Nothing Can’t Create Something. Something has to create things, and this ‘something’ is God.
Furthermore, a close look at creation proves that God exists because nature appears to be designed by an intelligent designer. I love animals dearly, and every time I see them, I realize that they are designed in a way that accurately matches their way of living.
For instance, birds have hollow bones to enable flight. Fish have gills so that they can survive in water. The cheetah’s spine is flexible to enable high speeds. Who designed the gills, fins, and the cheetah’s spine? Did they just come from nowhere?
In 2014, I hit rock-bottom and doubted God’s existence because I wondered why he couldn’t take my problems away. I, therefore, read several books that attempted to prove God’s existence but they never made me believe in God. However, one day, while I was thinking about God’s existence, a friend popped into my room from nowhere and told me that God exists.
I wondered what made him tell me about God’s existence because I didn’t ask him. Also, I wondered what made him come at my place despite the fact that he rarely visited me.
Anyway, I concluded that God wanted to prove his existence through him. From this day, I have never doubted God’s existence.
God is Real folks.
- Life Becomes Purposeful
When you believe in God, your life becomes purposeful because you realize that God created you to fulfill a certain purpose. A purposeful life makes you mindful, decisive, and happier. Studies show that many people who don’t believe in God think life is meaningless. The belief in a meaningless, purposeless, and Godless world often makes them easily succumb to fear, stress, and depression.
- You Will Have Faith in the Future
Recently, it dawned on me that people who truly believe in God have faith in the future. They believe that God is always ensuring that they have a better future. For this reason, they always have a peaceful state of mind because they believe God will make things to work out in their favor.
Personally, believing in God has also made me have great faith in both today and tomorrow because I believe that God, who cares for his creation, is creating a better future for me.
- You Will Set Bigger Goals
I also learned that many inventors dared to invent what people believed was impossible because they believed that a Supreme Intelligence was assisting and guiding them. As Brian Tracy writes in his book, Maximum Achievement: ‘Great people had an attitude of confidence that there was a power greater than themselves that was helping them.’
It is hard to believe in the achievement of great things if you know you are working alone. However, when you believe that there is a God working with you in achieving whatever you want, you will have the audacity to set BIG and ‘unrealistic’ goals because you’ll be convinced that God, the Greatest Power in the Universe, will assist you in the achievement of your goals.
Therefore, if you believe in God, please keep believing. However, if you don’t believe in God, please start doing so because you will find life purposeful, you will have confidence in the future, and you will also believe that nothing is impossible for you.
My belief in God makes me work hard, and keep posting articles for you to read because I believe God brought me here to enlighten people. This belief also makes me believe that my dream of making this blog reach the whole world will come true because I’m working with the MOST POWERFUL FORCE IN THE UNIVERSE.
Therefore, I trust that nothing I want will be impossible for me to achieve because WITH GOD EVERYTHING IS POSSIBLE.

Who Am I? – Discovering My True Self
‘I’m not a body with a soul, I am a soul that has a visible part called the body.’ – Paulo Coelho, Novelist
Recently, I wondered who I really am after realizing that I am neither my body nor my mind. I discovered that my body has its own mind as it performs bodily tasks on its own. It fights diseases, digests foods, and detects temperature without my help. Besides, I discovered that some bodily functions, such as hair growth, skin cell growth, and muscle movement continue after death. For this reason, it dawned on me that I am not my body because it can somehow function without me.
Besides my body, I realized that I am not my mind because my mind can think on its own. Sometimes I might want to quiet the mind through meditation, but it continues thinking. Also, I might want to focus on positive thoughts but my mind refuses to cooperate. I thus discovered that the mind is not me. Instead, it’s a gift from Infinite Intelligence that enables me to think and imagine.
Realizing that I am neither my body nor my mind enlightened me that I am a spiritual entity in a human body. I discovered that I am an individualized part of the Great Spirit that created the universe. This insight made me leap with joy as I realized that just like a drop in the ocean possesses all the properties of the ocean, I also possess all the qualities of the Great Spirit because I am part of it.
I then realized that I seldom enjoyed life because I never identified myself with my true identity. Instead, I always identified myself with my body, mind, and ego. I worried when my mind entertained anxious thoughts, and I felt bad about my body because it didn’t qualify for the society’s beauty standards. Primarily, I discovered that I seldom enjoyed life because I paid too much attention to my social status, self-image, and financial status, which are all products of the ego.
For this reason, my primary mission from today onwards is to transcend my body, mind, and egoic-self, and live as my true self because I know my life will completely change if I live as my true self.
You must also join me in my mission because our sufferings will end when we live as our true selves. Nothing in the external world will disturb our peace of mind, and we’ll interpret everything positively when we live as our true selves. Moreover, although we might continue loving our material possessions, we’ll detach from them and therefore, we won’t feel bad when we lose them.
We’ll also stop dwelling on our difficulties, and we’ll stop living in fear. As well, we’ll experience mysterious synchronicities and our minds we’ll be quiet. Lastly, solutions to difficulties will become clearer, and we’ll always be in a state of Love, Trust, and Surrender.
‘As you expand your awareness as to who and what you really are, you get to make choices that liberate you from limitation.’ – Michael Beckwith
May the universe bless us with the ability to live as our true selves as soon as possible. Amen

Top 7 Intriguing Benefits of Gratitude You Didn’t Know About
Many great folks lay emphasis on gratitude. For example, Oprah Winfrey advises us to always write down five things we are thankful for before we sleep. According to her, thankfulness creates more goodness in one’s life. For as she said, ‘The more thankful I became, the more my bounty increased. That’s because – for sure – what you focus on expands. When you focus on the goodness in life, you create more of it.’
I thus had to practice gratitude and research about it because many great folks, especially Oprah Winfrey, encourage it. It then dawned on me that gratitude is important because of the following reasons.
Since gratitude makes you focus on the wonderful things life has given you, it gives you hope as it shows you how life always ensures that you have amazing things to be thankful for. In other words, it gives you hope by showing you the many ways in which the universe/life/God provides and cares for you.
2.Improves Your Health
Gratitude is good for your health since it boosts heart health and makes you sleep better. Moreover, gratitude, like most positive emotions, improves your health because it boosts your immune system and lowers blood pressure.
3.Fosters Empathy and Compassion
Thankfulness reminds you that you are more blessed than billions of people across the world. It reminds you that you have more to be thankful for than orphans, beggars, the ill, the deceased, and so on. For this reason, it makes you aware of other people’s suffering and forces you to help them.
4.Gratitude Raises Your Vibrational Frequency
You are a vibrational being, emitting a particular frequency. This frequency determines what you’ll attract in your life. Gratitude raises this frequency hence enabling you to attract good things in your life easily. For as for Rhonda Byrne, the television writer and producer, pointed it out, ‘Gratitude will shift you to a higher frequency, and you’ll attract much better things.’
Besides Rhonda, Joe Vitale, a renown author, also noticed that ‘when you move into an active state of sincere gratitude, your whole being lights up and your energy quickens, and this high vibration acts like a magnet to bring your good to you.’
5.Makes You Focus on the Present Moment
Since gratitude makes you focus on what you have right now, it makes you more present.
6.Shifts Your Focus from Your Problems
When facing difficulties, gratitude shifts your focus from your problems to your blessings. For this reason, it prevents you from contracting mental conditions – such as depression and chronic anxiety– which arise when you focus on your problems.
You become envious towards people when you focus on the negative side of your life. For this reason, gratitude eliminates envy because it shows you that, just like the people you are envious towards, you are also blessed with wonderful things.
You must make thankfulness a year-round habit if you want to experience the above, and many more benefits of gratitude. Remember to point out three to ten things you are grateful for every day, and reflect on how millions of people across the world don’t have them even though they want them.
