How to Overcome Any Type of Addiction

Published

on

Our addictions have overpowered us that sometimes we believe we’ll never overcome them. Today, I will offer you vital information that will help you beat your addictions.

An addiction always starts as a thought which turns into a desire which then turns into craving. Once you start craving, there is no going back because there are very high chances that you’ll bow down to your addiction. For this reason, one of the best ways to end your addiction is to avoid people or places that trigger addictive thoughts.

However, sometimes it might be hard to avoid these triggers. The good thing is that you can also beat addiction by training yourself to have power over your desires. Training starts when you avoid engaging in your addictions when they present themselves. For instance, if you are addicted to spending, you can say no to a friend who calls you to accompany her on a spending spree.

Moreover, you can beat your addictions by suspending your beliefs about your addictions. For instance, if you are an alcoholic you can quit alcohol by eradicating the belief that alcohol is the only thing that can help you relax.

You’ll fail several times while trying to beat your addiction. The best thing to do is to never give up.

Psychologists claim it takes 40 days of abstinence to break an addiction. Therefore, always try ending your days without getting involved in what you are addicted to, and you’ll overcome your addictions after 40 days. Lastly, master your desires and never let them control you, and remember that you are the master of your thoughts, feelings, emotions, and desires. None of them has power over you.

    The power of our own minds is so intense. Every thought that comes out of it tends to define who we are. It is therefore upon us to take charge of it and not let negative illusion overcome us. Awesome piece buddy!

      yes brian, its a mental illness.
      an addict will always be obsessed with the addictive substance even if he knows that the substance is negatively affecting his life.
      Also, many addicts always suffer from other mental illneses such as depression, chronic anxiety, etc. Therefore, apart from being a mental illness, addiction is also accompanied by mental illnesses Therefore, where there is an addiction, there is surely a mental illness

      By the way, i struggled with addictions for a while, and to be honest, sometimes i still get tempted to take a beer or two…but if i do so, i never worry because i know that i am winning because no mental illness is powerful than the human spirit combined with a massive willpower..thanks for commenting brian

The Top Three Biggest Fears That Prevent Us from Succeeding, and How to Overcome Them

Published

on

Fear is our biggest enemy because it prevents us from doing what we must do for us to succeed.

After analyzing fear for a while, I realized the three main types of fear that prevent us from succeeding. 

Here are they:

1.The Fear of Negative Opinions

Most people avoid doing what might lead to their success because they fear negative opinions. For instance, some of my friends are good at singing, but they avoid pursuing music as a career because they fear people’s negative opinions. Also, I know some people who avoid starting businesses because they fear negative opinions. 

Our huge ego is responsible for this fear because it desires praises, and therefore, avoids anything that might lead to ridicule.

Overcoming the Fear of Negative Opinions

Realize that you’ll consider yourself a BIG FOOL if you remember how you avoided doing what could lead to success because you feared negative opinions. Moreover, understand that negative opinions represent people’s viewpoints, and they have nothing to do with you. Lastly, realize that avoiding something because you fear people’s negative opinions implies that you are giving them power over you.

2.The Fear of Failure

The biggest impediment to success is the fear of failure. We avoid investing in worthy projects because we fear failure. We fear losing our money or wasting our effort and time on something that might fail, and we fear that people might despise us when we fail. Moreover, we fear failure because we want to be successful as quickly as possible.

Overcoming the Fear of Failure

Overcome the fear of failure by realizing that all great people failed. Besides this, know that you’ll be at peace with yourself if you try and fail, but regret deeply if you avoid trying and then see people succeed in what you avoided. Also, understand that life provides second chances and for this reason, you can always try again when you fail.

3.The Fear of Appearing Broke

Most of us have good business ideas but avoid pursuing them because we fear appearing broke while actualizing them. We know that actualizing our business ideas might make us appear broke because we’ll have to avoid investing in our lifestyle so that we invest in our ideas until they become profitable.

Overcoming the Fear of Appearing Broke

Know that although you might appear broke for a while, you might have more than enough after actualizing your idea.

Concluding Remarks

Realize that the three fears only exist in your mind, and therefore, you’ll be the biggest fool in the world if you allow them to impede your progress. However, allow them to make you cautious but prevent them from stopping you from doing the only things that might lead to your success. Lastly, realize that the GOOD LIFE IS ON THE OTHER SIDE OF FEAR.

5 Great Benefits of Spending More Time Alone

Published

on

I’ve always been a social person who loved spending more time with people. However, my decision to curve my own path in October 2017 resulted in me spending more time alone.  Since then, I embraced solitude because I tasted its sweet fruits.

I realized the following benefits of solitude.

1.You Do More Useful Shit

Spending more time alone enabled me to find time for working towards my goals. In 2018, I managed to write articles all year, read and write books, and make money because of solitude.

Before embracing solitude, I was unable to do useful shit because I was always with my friends, and we liked spending our time arguing, joking, drinking, and smoking pot. We wasted lots of valuable time that we could have used to do useful shit.

2.You Stop Being Concerned About Other People’s Affairs

I realized that spending more time alone enabled me to stop being concerned about other people’s affairs. I had no one to tell me about John’s alcoholic monkey, Jerry’s cool rat, and Tom’s fucked up cat.

It dawned on me that the more I spent time with people, the more I wanted to know and think about their affairs. And the more I thought about their affairs, the more I wasted time comparing my life with theirs. Solitude thus allowed me to only think and care about me.

3.You Save More Money

Spending more time alone enabled me to save more money because I lacked the company that encouraged me to spend money on parties, clubs, and the latest footwear. I also saved more because I stopped spending on people to make them love my company.

4.You Engage in Deep Thinking

Being alone allowed me to engage in deep thinking during my free time. Deep thinking enabled me to discover many pearls of wisdom that I’ve shared in my blog posts and book. Earlier, it was almost impossible for me to engage in deep thinking during my free time because I spent it socializing.

5.You Know Thyself

Spending more time alone enabled me to face myself. With no one to occupy my energy and attention, I started thinking about my weaknesses, strengths, and passions. I discovered that my major weakness is the fear of rejection, and my major strength is a strong will power. I also realized that I loved reading, researching, and watching wildlife documentaries. It was hard for me to discover such things before embracing solitude.

Conclusion

These are the five major benefits of solitude that make me want to spend more time alone. You can try spending more time alone and you’ll experience them personally. Anyway, I believe there are many more benefits of solitude that many bloggers have written about. You are free to add them in the comment box below.

Love Ya. Thanks for reading my shit
