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
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.
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.
‘Fear is not real; the only place that fear can exist is in our thoughts of the future.’ – Will Smith

5 Great Benefits of Spending More Time Alone
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.
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

A Summary of The 22 Harsh and Hidden Truths I Have Learned in 2018. HAPPY HOLIDAYS
This is my last article in 2018 and I would love to share with you what I’ve learned this year. 2018 has been a wonderful year for me. I’ve known wonderful people from different parts of the world through my blog. I’ve also posted articles consistently, experienced the power of solitude, and learned the following harsh and hidden truths about life.
- Prayer Changes Nothing If You Don’t Take Action
If you want to achieve your goals, work hard towards them. Don’t just pray and expect a god to help you achieve them. If you do so you’ll literally achieve your goals in your dreams.
- ‘Bad’ Things Will Still Happen Even If You Pray
Prayer doesn’t prevent ‘bad’ things from happening. The world will throw loads of shit at you even if you pray 1,000 times a day.
- God/Infinite Intelligence Exists Whether You Like it or Not.
After studying several biology books and watching many wildlife documentaries, I realized that the universe is intelligently designed by something with intelligence beyond our measure. Many people call it God.
- Your Body is Intelligent
The body is very intelligent. It makes you feel hungry when it needs food, and it knows how to digest the food and absorb crucial nutrients necessary for its growth.
- Reading Books Makes You Wiser
I have learned a lot through reading, and I also realized that most wise people read a lot.
- You Have to Train Yourself to Be Strong
Life is good but sometimes shit happens. Be strong when shit happens, and believe that you are powerful than your experiences because they are an illusion.
- If You Wish the Best for Others You Won’t feel Bad When Good Things Happen to them.
Wishing good things to happen to others makes you rejoice with them when good things happen to them. However, wishing bad things to happen to others will result in you feeling bad when good things happen to them. Therefore, always wish the best for others and you’ll never be resentful.
- Living the Life of Your Dreams is Possible But Not Easy
I extensively studied the biographies of many folks living their dreams and realized that they are all ordinary people who were brave enough to follow their dreams. I, therefore, concluded that it’s possible for each of us to live our dreams. However, I also realized that it’s hard to live our dreams because we’ll have to make sacrifices, work hard, and persist until we achieve them.
- Life Fuckin Goes On When You Die
Only a few people will cry when you die. But the ants, lizards, cows, my cute naughty cat, and 99% of the world will continue with their normal schedule. Be Humble.
- Generosity Attracts Love
People love generous folks, and they are willing to die for them. Politicians know this and they become extremely generous during political campaigns.
- Having A Job is not The Only Way To Make Money
I always believed that I can only make money through employment. However, this year, this belief changed after meeting folks who make lots of money from their businesses and craft.
- It’s Hard to Build A Successful Business
Building a successful business requires you to persevere when you experience losses. It also requires you to take huge risks and build business skills.
- If You Are Expecting Success, Expect Jealousy Too.
Not everybody, including your close friends and relatives, will be happy when you succeed. But don’t worry, that’s part of life.
- You Can Connect With Infinite Intelligence/God
Infinite Intelligence is in everything within and around you. You become highly connected to it when you focus all your energies on one thing.
- Never Ever Give A Fuck About What Other People Think About You
You will never live authentically if you are concerned with other people’s thoughts about you. You’ll focus so much on doing things that please others if you care so much about other people’s thoughts.
- The Law of Attraction Works
You attract what you mostly think about because your thoughts shape your actions.
- Maybe Ghosts, Mermaids, and Fairies Exist
I read somewhere that there are forests with viruses so deadly that a human being can die a few hours after entering them. Maybe ghosts and fairies live in these forests. Besides this, a big part of our oceans is unexplored; maybe mermaids dwell in this part.
- Solitude is Awesome
Solitude makes you think deeply, and it creates lots of free time which you can use to make your dreams a reality.
- You Don’t Have to Be Old For You to Be Wise
Contrary to popular belief, you can be wise at a young age. Remember, the Christian Messiah: Jesus, was wise at age 12.
Yes, wisdom comes with experience but it also comes with enlightenment and you can be enlightened at any age.
- You Might Never Progress If You Fear Taking Risks
Never expect to progress when you play safe. Progress requires risk-taking since risks open you up to many opportunities and allow you to fail forward.
- Academic Education Is Bullshit
Academic education trains you to memorize a lot of information that you’ll never use in real life. Besides this, it doesn’t make you wiser as it never shows you how to navigate through the journey of life.
The only good thing about academic education is that it helps you to read, write, and calculate.
- I Love Game of Thrones
Sorry, I know this is a personal development blog but I just had to put this on my list. Game of Thrones is one of the few Television Shows I watch and I can’t wait for the final season. The TV show makes me forget everything for a moment and dissolve into wonderland. Can’t wait to see who will eventually win the GAME OF THRONES.
Hope these truths had an impact on you.
Anyway, there are many hidden truths I have learned after dedicating my life to discovering how life and the Infinite Intelligence works. I believe that life is so good and we can experience heaven on earth if we live in alignment with the universal flow.
I believe you already know that this is my last article in 2018. But don’t worry, I will give you more nuggets of wisdom when I’m back in January. I have worked so hard this year, and I think I need a break. And to all readers who have a dream, keep working on it and remember that if you don’t give up you won’t fail. I have not yet achieved my dreams but I know that I will achieve them soon if I work hard and persevere enough.
Every great person was like you and me. They just persevered when others gave up, and all they cared about was achieving their dreams; nothing else. We’ll also achieve our dreams if we just don’t give up. The universe has already given us whatever we want. We just have to play our part by working hard and trusting the future.
Thank you so much for reading this blog post.
You can grab my free book and receive enlightening knowledge I have learned this year.
