3 Things You Must Change to Excel in Life

So many times, you accuse your country leaders of your failures and frustration. So many times, you blame your disadvantaged background, geographical location, and the devil for your economic downturn and setbacks.

Yes, you want to be rich but spend time in wishing, forgetting that if wishes were horses beggars would ride. You want to be rich, but fold your arms and open your mouth wide praying for prosperity, forgetting that the god that favors a lazy man does not exist.

You waste precious time complaining as if someone told you when complaints are planted they germinate. While your neighbor stays awake late into the nights thinking, you are busy sleeping and snoring.

While he sets goals and makes plans to accomplish them, you are complaining. While he is discussing ideas, you are discussing people. While he is making use of his natural abilities, you are toying with yours.

While he tries repeatedly each time he fails, you give up easily when faced with little storms unqualified to refer to as an obstacle. While he succeeds, you become jealous of him forgetting that the time you spent grieving at his success is enough to think of a way to make it.

Nobody likes to stay awake late into the night for whatsoever reason, but people do it because they know if they don’t, it would be virtually impossible for them to wake up to a bright new day. You want to be rich but surround yourself with poverty-minded people.

You want to make a difference but love hanging out in questionable places as if you have seen anyone changing the world from a disco hall. Your choice of music is uninspiring and little or nothing you learn from the movies you watch.

The way you talk sometimes makes one wonder if you have ever seen a school in your entire life, let alone attending one. Often times, why listening to a beautiful piece of music, you wish you could sing like the artiste. To you, he or she has a fantastic voice and you don’t.

You are quick at praising others but quicker to condemn yourself. Even while you see people doing it, you still believe you cannot do it.

You know the name of the richest man in the world, best basketball player, highest paid footballer, richest musician, award-winning movie stars, but no one knows your name yet you are not bothered.

Each time Cristiano Ronaldo scores a goal or Serena Williams gets a point, you are the first to yell, jump and clap. Each time you watch Lady Gaga performing on stage making use of her talent, you scream and clap. You clap every time Donald Trump sums up a wonderful speech, clap every time LeBron James leads his term to victory.

Little wonder you get so tired at times. I am not blaming you for doing this, because there is absolutely nothing wrong to clap for others especially when they do exploits or have done great things.

What am saying, in essence, is that you have been clapping for others for too long; don’t you know it is time for others to start clapping for you?

What are you doing to make others begin to clap for you or, are you saying you are not good enough to receive a standing ovation? Of course, someone is responsible for your financial sickness and failures in life. Go straight to your mirror, stand in front of it and you will see clearly the person responsible for this thing.

Don’t ever make the mistake to pray for your enemies to die because you may sleep and don’t wake up. You cannot change the world like this. This is not the way to be rich; if everyone starts thinking like you, the world is finished.

This was not how Warren Buffet, Richard Branson, and Oprah Winfrey became billionaires. This was not how Donald Trump, Theresa May, Angela Merkel, and Emmanuel Macron became their country leaders.

Dear esteemed reader, Denzel Washington, Julia Robert and U2 Lead singer Bono, did not become superstars like this. And of course, this was definitely not how Isaac Newton discovered the law of gravity or how Alexander Graham Bell invented the telephone you and I are enjoying today.

You talk too much, sleep too much, doubt too much, fear too much, complain too much and yet want to be rich. Nobody that wants to change the world or amount to something in life behaves and acts like this.

If you really want to make it in life, you must change these three things Listed below because everything is wrong with them.

1. Your Mental Attitude

You ain’t going nowhere son, until you change the way you do things. Everything is wrong with it that is why your life is on the wrong track. There is a way you must talk, walk, sleep and conduct yourself before you can attain an enviable height in life.

It is a principle no one can change or modify. If you want to know why you have not achieved financial independence, simply do this one thing.

Evaluate yourself and write down the name of ten people you think behaves like you. If you can put down up to two names, know someone or something is responsible for your problems.

2. The Way you think

It is because you are thinking backward that you are experiencing defeat and failure. Your thoughts are outdated you must upgrade if you wish to move forward in life. The world is moving fast and you must move accordingly.

Understand that the era of using bow and arrow in warfare is far-gone. Men don’t wait for a manner to fall down from heaven anymore. Women are becoming presidents and billionaires now.

Everyone knows to wait for the government, does not work these days.You must align your thinking with today’s world before you can convince today’s people to buy your goods and services before you can convince today’s employers to employ you.

3. perception

If you want a change in your life, there is no alternative to changing your outlook. Remember, your outlook toward life is how your life looks. Your perception of success is the demon chaining down your takeoff zeal.

It is because you view things as tough, that every opportunity appears to you as a thorn. Things will definitely start working for you if you move away from the crowd and view things from another angle.

Learn to question and ponder on most of the things you hear people say because they are full of the kind of virus that incites the subconscious mind to act upon the thoughts of poverty.

They say life is not a bed of roses yet there are plenty of roses on Mark Zuckerberg's bed. In sum, if you set a worthwhile goal and pursue it, there is nothing in the whole of the universe, that can stop roses from germinating in your life.

Note: The three things listed above are your worst enemies in life. They are not only responsible for the countless divorce, separation and breakups all over the world today, but for your failures and financial sickness.

Yes, if you hate poverty, you must think properly. If you want riches, your dispositions must reflect it. Ronald Reagan the 40th president of the United States stated:

“There are no constraints on the human mind, no walls around the human spirit, no barriers to our progress except those we ourselves erect.”

It is time you stop pointing fingers at anything and everything and start owning up to your mistakes and rising up to the challenge.

One of the greatest philosophers and thinker of all time Confucius believed firmly that human beings can improve their life through personal development and create the kind of life they truly desire.

I specially recommend a book on "personal development" The Requirements For Riches. Use it to build a consciousness of possibility and alter the course of events in your life.


There is a creative force in us to cause change and create the kind of life we desire that is why men such as Nelson Mandela, attained legendary heights despite spending twenty-seven years behind the bar.

That is why the author of Harry Potter J.k. Rowling rose from anonymity to become the first writer in history to hit the billionaire dollar mark despite going through the kind of hardship you may not wish for your enemy.

Great minds of all ages agree there is a drop of greatness in everyone because of this obvious fact. In fact, some leading religions are of the conviction that poverty is an abnormality because man is a being who has enough power to control the entire world and put the angels to his own service.

A Scottish scientist an inventor of the telephone Alexander Graham Bell described the subliminal power this way,

“What this power is I cannot say; all I know is that it exists and becomes available only when a man is in a state of mind in which he knows exactly what he wants, and is fully determined not to quit until he finds it.”

One of the richest men of all time Andrew Carnegie knew about it that was why he stated; “There is a power under your control that is greater than poverty, greater than the lack of education, greater than all your fears and superstition combined.”

The power to change your situation is already within you, all you have to do is activate it and use it to bring about the desired changes. How do I activate this subliminal power inherent in me?

One of the ways in which to activate it is to attract positive vibrations such as positive thoughts to your subconscious mind. If the belief you hold is beautiful and powerful, it can activate and unleash this dynamic ability to cause change inherent in your innermost self [the core of your nature].

Here is the truth; your life is the expression of what you believe. Your life can never be ugly if you adopt a beautiful belief. No matter how disadvantaged your background is if you fill your heart with thoughts of possibilities your life becomes a perfect reflection of opportunities.

You have small things not because you are not cut out for big ones but because you don’t believe in them. How does this subliminal power help one to win in life?

Once activated and unleashed, it causes something to happen to your psyche to bring about the change you aspire for. Put in another way, you acquire the capacity to do the things that will align you with the vibration of success.

How does one acquire the kind of thoughts to activate and unleash this subliminal power? If you aspire to acquire the thoughts to activate and make this power available to you simply act on the instructions below:

1. Avoid low minds

If there is one thing low minded people are good at, it is to stir up thoughts of defeat on the minds of people close to them with low talk.

When your mind is submerged with dark thoughts, it takes a miracle for you to attain an enviable height because before long, they gain dominion over you, germinates into a belief, ripens to a conviction, and becomes your action and then your reality.

Remember, life, wealth and death flow through word. A word is like every other seed, it germinates and produces fruits. What you open your ears to and who you give it to determines not only your position in life but your wellbeing.

Not too ago, a man who complained of a slight headache was told by his physician that he had a terminal disease and should write his will because he had a very short time to live. Hearing this, life left him and he began to visualize death.

Before long, the man died as the doctor said. Then, an autopsy was carried out on him. The result of the autopsy shows that his doctor erred because he suffered from no such ailment. What simply killed the innocent man was the word of the low minded physician.

2. Avoid low places

If you are in the habit of going to high brown areas, what you are looking for is gold. And if you decide to make the ghetto your second home, what you are finding is trouble. Trust trouble, it will not fail to find you sooner than you thought possible.

Here is the truth; if you always go to places where they are successful people, what you see ignites your spirit and compels you to have high desires.

Before long, you start growing the kind of thoughts needed to activate and unleash the subliminal power inherent in your innermost self [the core of your nature].

3. Take a vacation from your TV set

It is important to understand that two effective tools you have to shape your destiny are time and energy. If you decide to waste these two things sitting all day watching those who don’t know you exist, you will die a pauper.

Remember, those you are watching put in their best into what you watch. If all they do is sit all day and watch TV, believe me, you don’t want to make them your role model.

To grow the thoughts to activate your subliminal power, you must reduce drastically the time you spend on watching TV.

The bitter truth is most TV programs are designed not to stir up thoughts of possibilities on your mind, but rather, pin you to that easy-chair all day and at the end, induce you to open your already dry pulse to purchase that which will rob you of what you have left to alter the cause of events in your life.

The fact is all they show are limitations. American famous motivational speaker and writer Zig Ziglar observed, “Rich people have small TVs and big libraries, poor people have small libraries and big TVs.” Before you sit down to watch a movie, make sure your life is moving.

4. Read at least one book on personal development each month

It is difficult if not impossible to encounter failure when you read books on the subject of success regularly. Remember, the mind is where it all begins. If you feed it with the right materials, it will produce the right thoughts.

It is as simple as a b. c. Research shows that 85% of rich people read two or more career-related or self-improvement books per month and, in fact, it works great for them.

In sum, try to act on these instructions in order to activate and put your subliminal power to bear on any area of your life you desire a change.

Chinese thinker and philosopher Confucius was of the conviction that human beings can improve their lives through personal development and design the life they truly desire. So many people went through life as failures because they didn’t invest in themselves.

They didn’t improve themselves with content such as inspirational books, and audio tapes. Musicians know that it is impossible to entertain a hungry man that is why most of them spend their time composing empowering songs that will inspire us to do things that can transform our lives.

Some song lyrics can help you surmount life challenge and some can prompt you to attempt a great thing. Below are some powerful lyrics from the songs of our finest musicians. Close your eyes and reflect on these lyrics if you want them to work for you.


Artiste: Mariah Carey

Song title: Hero


Song Lyrics



Verse 1


There is a hero, if you look inside your heart

You don’t have to be afraid of what you are

There’s an answer, if you reach into your soul

And the sorrow that you know will melt away




And then a hero comes along, with the strength to carry on

And you cast your fears aside and you know you can survive

So when you feel like hope is gone look inside you and be strong

And you will finally see the truth that a hero lies in you


Verse 2


It’s a long road, when you face the world alone

No one reaches out a hand for you to hold

You can find love, if you search within yourself

And that empty you felt will disappear


Chorus Again


And then a hero comes along with the strength to carry on

And you cast your fears aside and you know you can survive

So when you feel like hope is gone look inside you and be strong

And you finally see the truth that the hero lies in you




Lord knows, dreams are hard to follow

But don’t let anyone tear them away

Hold on, there will be tomorrow

In time, you will find a way



Artiste: R Kelly

Song title: I believe I can fly


Song lyrics



Verse 1


I used to think that I could not go on

And life was nothing but an awful song

But now I know the meaning of true love

I’m leaning on the everlasting arms

If I can see it, then I can do it

If I just believe it, there is nothing to it




I believe I can fly, I believe I can touch the sky

I think about it every night and day, spread my wings and fly away

I believe I can soar, I see me running through that open door

[I believe I can fly] 3x


Verse 2


See I was on the verge of breaking down

Sometimes silence can seem so loud

There are miracles in life I must achieve

But first I know it starts inside of me,

oh If I can see it, then I can be it If I just believe it,

there is nothing to it


Chorus again/hardlip


If I just spread my wings [I can fly] I can fly…….

I can fly I can fly, hey If I just spread my wings, I can fly……… Hum, fly……..


Artistes: Mariah Carey and Whitney Houston Song title:When you believe Song lyrics


Verse I


Many nights we prayed with no proof anyone could hear

In our hearts, a hopeful song we barely understood

Now we are not afraid, although we know there’s much to fear

We were moving mountain long before we knew we could, oh yes




There can be miracles, when you believe

Though hope is frail, it is hard to kill

Who know what miracles you can achieve?

When you believe, somehow you will when you believe


Verse II


Oh yeah, in this time of fear when prayer so often proves in vain

Hope seemed like the summer bird too swiftly flown away

Yet now I am standing here my heart so full, I can’t explain

Seeking faith and speaking words I never thought I’d say


Chorus Again


There can be miracles, when you believe

Though hope is frail, it’s hard to kill

Who knows what miracles you can achieve?

When you believe, somehow you will you will

when you believe




They don’t always happen when you ask

And it’s easy to give in to your fears

But when you are blinded by your pain

Can’t see your way through the rain

A small but still resilient voice

Says hope is very near, oh





Artiste: R Kelly and Celine Dionne

Song title: Am Your Angel


Song lyrics



Verse 1


No mountain’s too high for you to climb, all you have to do is have some climbing faith: oh yeah

No river is too wide, for you to make it across, all you have to do is believe it when you pray

And then you will see the morning will come, and every day will be bright as the sun

All of your fears cast them on me, I just want you to see




I will be your cloud up in the sky I will be your shoulder when you cry

I will hear your voices when you call, I am your angel

And when all hope is gone I am here, No matter how far you are, I’m near

It makes no difference who you are I’m your angel. I’m your angel


Verse 11


I saw the tears drop and I heard you cry

All you need is time; seek me and you shall find

You have everything and you are still lonely

It don’t have to be this way, let me show you a better day

And then you will see the morning will come

And all of your days will be bright as the sun

So all of your fears just cast them on me

How can I make you see!




And when it’s time to face the storm I will be right by your side

Grace will keep us safe and warm And I know we will survive

And when it seems as if your end is drawing near [the end is drawing near]

Don’t you dare give up the fight oh no Just put your trust beyond the skies
