Why You Must Reclaim Your Dignity

Published

on

Everybody has a right to dignity, honour, or self-respect regardless of his social or economic status. Most of us think that dignity or respect is only a right for the rich, talented, or the famous. However, this belief is wrong because it results in poor self-esteem and failure to achieve big things in life.

If you think you do not deserve respect, then no one will respect you because people only respect individuals with high self-worth. Therefore, you should never feel inferior just because you lack money, trendy things, or other things that the society thinks you must have. Always demand people to respect you despite your current circumstances because a strong sense of self-worth will bring you many advantages in life.

If you feel worthless, you will attract people who feel worthless, and it will also be hard for you to take risks or indulge in activities that require you to believe in yourself. However, when you reclaim your dignity and feel worthy, you attract confident people in your life. Besides this, many individuals will want to be part of your life because you will be an inspirational source to them.

Moreover, if you reclaim your dignity, you will never care what people say or think about you because you will have high self-esteem. For this reason, you will always believe that you have the ability to handle anything without needing approval.

Therefore, you must reclaim your dignity and always feel that you deserve respect because you are and you will be a very important person in the society. Also, believe that you deserve respect because you are unique, talented, and a very valuable individual. Once you believe that you deserve respect, you will have high self-esteem, and furthermore, nothing will hinder you from achieving what you want because you will always believe in yourself.

We only attract what we feel worthy of – Antony Roberts, Beyond Positive Thinking

    Spot on. Society tends to treat you how you treat yourself. The cat that keeps clean is let into the house by the same farmer that keeps the pig in the pens. Yoruba proverb 🙂

      Dignity cannot be granted by the society, you are responsible for providing yourself a sense of self-worth

    The power of the declaration lies in its insistence that human rights are predicated on the dignity of the person

      True, every individual’s dignity is the foundation of human rights. The fact that people respect themselves forces states to formulate a number of human rights that protect their citizens.

What Proves God is Good And Willing to Help You?

Published

on

N/B – I use the terms, ‘God,’ ‘his,’ and ‘him’ because they are the most common words used in reference to THE CREATOR. 

I started questioning God after realizing that many individuals are going through difficulties. However, I never questioned his existence because creation is enough evidence that God exists. I only questioned his goodness, and willingness to help and guide us.

Sometimes I wonder if God is really good, loving, and caring because nothing proves so. Or do you have proof that God is good and caring? Our prayers are seldom answered, life is unfair, and most of the time we get what we don’t want even after praying, and believing in God.

Does God really give us what we want? Does he really care for us? If so, why can’t he make life smooth for us?

When bad things happen, we are always told to stay calm because it’s God’s will. It seems God forces his will on us, and what he wants will happen whether we like it or not. What if God is an evil spirit who doesn’t give a freak about us? What if he enjoys seeing us suffering? What if he’s not interested in helping us achieve our dreams?

Recently, I realized that we always work for whatever we want. Nothing is given for free by any power. If you want inner peace, work on it. If you want riches, work hard, and if you want a stable relationship, work for it. God will not give you these things if you pray without working hard for them. You cannot pray hard, sleep all day, and expect blessings. The surest way to get blessings is to work for them.

With this in mind, what role does God play in our lives? Maybe he does nothing because he’s neither good nor bad. Maybe he just created the world and left us to deal with it in whatever way we can. Maybe he never interferes with our daily deeds, and that’s why he seldom answers our prayers.

Maybe we are the gods, and we have the power to overcome hardships and get whatever we want. Or maybe he does nothing because he knows we are powerful and intelligent enough to pass the tests of life.

Anyway, until today, I have never discovered something that proves God is good and willing to help us. And for the people who claim God helped them, could God have helped you if you didn’t do anything? Maybe you just helped yourself.

Don’t misunderstand me. I believe in God, and I know there are great benefits to those who can align with his power.  For this reason, I just want to know ‘Him’ more. I think I’m doubtful because I just don’t know how to make ‘Him’ help and guide me, or I don’t know how to establish a connection with ‘Him’.

Despite my doubts, I trust that God might be a good God, and I know the problem is that I don’t know how to align with ‘Him’.

I, therefore, want you to help me realize how I can establish a connection with ‘Him’, and make ‘Him’ help and guide me towards a prosperous life. I want ‘Him’ to answer my prayers, and help me make a change in the world. I need to help many poor folks because living near a slum/ghetto has made me realize that some people really suffer. I must help them but I know I can’t without the help of a Higher Power. I, therefore, need God’s assistance, and guidance. But then, does God really help us? Is The Creator interested in guiding me?

Do you believe God is good and willing to help you? If you do, explain in the comment box below why you think God is good, and how he’s helped you.

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.
