6 Important Mindsets You Need To Succeed

Published

on

Mindsets

Life doesn’t just happen to you unless you let it, and your life will continually feel out of your control because you have chosen to relinquish control. In the end, your life is ultimately your creation and your mindset is the most important tool you need to shape it. Jumia Travel and Jumia Mobile Week share 6 important mindsets you need to succeed.

Self-Discovery is a Process

Life and living is a journey, therefore understand the process and be patient with it. Don’t be impatient and hurry through the different stages of your life. In the end you will have missed a lot of what you shouldn’t miss and have too many regrets. Be open to explore the unknown and be strong enough to deal with, embrace and learn from surprises and bumps along the way.

You are Responsible for Your Life

You need to learn to take responsibility for your life. You truly begin to live when you decide your life is your own and you alone are responsible for the quality of it, with no apologies, no excuses and no one to blame.

Not Everything Goes as Planned

Unfortunately, though most people know this, they often times forget. You need to understand that life isn’t perfect and things will not always turn out like you planned or imagined. This is why you need to learn to create safety nets and have back-up plans or measures in place to deal with these setbacks. Don’t let things take you unawares.

There is a Way Through, Under or Above Every Obstacle

Thomas Edison tried 1000 ways to create a light bulb. This man was resilient in a way that was almost ridiculous and at the 1001th try, he got it. Be like that. Learn persistence and resilience, understand that there is always a way out and don’t give up until you find it. What matters is not the obstacle but how you see it, react to it and if you keep your composure through it.

Done is Better than Perfect

It is important you understand that continuous improvement is better than perfection. Perfectionism is unhealthy primarily because it’s an unhealthy combination of high standards and brutal self-criticism. Truth is, the real world doesn’t reward perfectionists; the real world rewards people who get things done.

You Can Do It

Believe in yourself. Believe that you have what it takes to succeed, if you don’t, aside a miracle, there is little that can help you succeed. Even if by some amazing stroke of luck you do succeed, it won’t last because you don’t have what it takes to maintain it. Learn to believe in yourself.

Masturbation is the self-stimulation of the genitals to achieve sexual arousal and pleasure, usually to the point of orgasm (sexual climax).

  • When men ejaculate, a little cortisol gets released, which is the stress hormone. This boosts their immune system.
  • Masturbation can release stress and tension from the body by flooding the system with endorphins. Endorphins trigger a positive feeling in the body and can lead to sound sleep.
  • With age men naturally lose muscle tone even in the penis. Masturbation or regular sex in a way exercises the pelvic floor muscles and prevent erectile dysfunction and incontinence.
  • Masturbating releases feel-good neurochemicals like dopamine and oxytocin that lifts your spirits, boosts your satisfaction, and activates the reward circuits in your brain.
  • It can enhance your relationship with your partner since you know yourself physically.

Mom That Has 10 Sons Finally Gives Birth To A Girl

Published

on

A lady identified as Alexis Brett who hails from England has finally given birth to a daughter after having 10 sons.

When Alexis and her husband were pregnant with their 11th child, she was expecting to hear that she was having another son. She was completely in shock when she heard she was finally having a girl.

Now that their daughter is here, they are absolutely loving it. At her arrival, her 10 other sons were ages 2-17.

Alexis thought her 10th son was her last; however, she knows for sure her daughter, Cameron, is definitely her last child.

They absolutely love their nontraditional family. While others think it is huge and crazy, they enjoy raising a large family.

Alexis shared, “I’m an only child myself and I’d never planned to have a large family, but now that I do, I love it. I always joked I wouldn’t have a clue what to do with a girl anyway but that’s all changed now, of course, and I have to admit that we’re having a lot of fun buying pink things for the first time.”

Alexis and her husband David have been married since 1998. They live in Dingwall, Ross-shire in a five-bedroom house with the entire family.

They have to go to the grocery store three times a week to have enough food to feed their family! In a given week, they would go through 16 loaves of bread, 100 packets of chips, and 50 pints of milk.

Alexis and David never meant to have a big family; however, they have absolutely no regrets. They love their somewhat crazy life just the way it is. They especially love having a little pink in a house filled with boys as well.

Cameron sure is one lucky little girl to have 10 older brothers to protect her as she grows up!

For some, one child is enough, but for this mom, she definitely enjoys the wait after 10 sons to finally get a beautiful daughter.
