Tip 1: Talk To God And Not Man

As human, we always get to a point of ‘confusion’ where we need to make real decisions. Sometime, it might not be decisions, but request for our needs. Avoid talking to men, but talk to God. You should talk to God because it is only through Him you can secure all your needs. There is every tendency that man will disappoint or fail you. When this happens, it is the worst moment of man’s life.

God doesn’t say NO, He can only tell you YES, NOT YET or NOT THIS. He knows your needs better than you. Trusting Him for your needs help you to live happily and not under fear.

This does not limit your networking in life or being bold to make a request from life. But never you depend on man for anything. Instead, get busy adding value to yourself and let them seek for you.

Tip 4: Don’t multitask

The ability to multitask is a demanding skills in corporate organizations and it is really trending as a great skill in everyday activities. Multitasking consumes your thoughts and drains away your energy (Lifecoach). Yes, you will have results delivered as fast as possible, but our concern here is the outcome of that. You need to stay happy and peaceful by attending to tasks one after the other. I have been practicing multitasking for years too, but of recent I see how happy I am when I single task. I might not be as fast as anyone who multitask, but I deliver more effectively and I am always happy. At the end, all you want in whatever you call success is to be happy you are a success. Don’t trade the happiness with drained energy.

Tip 5: Control the impact of social media

One common ways where people are loosing their peaceful live in this generation is through the strong influencing factor of social media. Never allow social media to set a standard of living or design a life you should live for you. Many chose a life to live through personalities they are seeing online. Many people are dreaming a life because of what they see people posting. Let me balance this, not all pictures or posts on social media are fake, some are real and it is good if you admire them and want to be like them. But what do you know about their journey to that destination you are admiring today? Whenever you are trying to meet up with societal standard of living, peace is likely to be far away from you because you might end up running beyond your your right success point.
