In my early teenage years, I really took off with writing; recording my plans for the future. I could remember reading a book that encouraged the readers to become a friend of writing; writing down what you plan to achieve in the short and long term in life. So for me, writing was going to be my new companion. And so, I remembered loving to record everything as it pertained to my career path, academic journey, places I wanted to visit, how much money I thought I could possibly make, the age to get married and so on. I just put it all down on paper.
What I was doing, was journaling my thoughts as it pertained to the ideas I had in my mind. The great thing about journaling is that you can return to the written or typed material at any time, to make additions or deletions as the case may be.

Keep in mind, that what makes you successful first, must be the value or the appreciation you have of yourself. Material things may come, with persistence and attention paid to your talents, abilities or skill. Knowledge will come, as you examine your thinking of what you know and what you aspire to comprehend. Knowledge will also come your way, as you read and learn from those who are more informed on subject matter than you are. But firstly, as Maya Angelou once said, “Success is liking yourself, liking what you do, and liking how you do it”. This can be achieved once you take the time to examine your thinking.

you are for a moment and what

Be aware of how you use information from your environment though, as this can prevent you from achieving your dreams. I remembered coming across a theory call social learning. In this theory, the basic understanding states that, this type of learning occurs mainly by observing the responses or behavior of others, in relation to situations that they are presented with. So remember to use the positive contribution of others. If you use the negative responses of people who fail, of those who refused to get up and try again, after events in their lives knocks them down. If you unconsciously believe that that is the path to follow, should something similar happened in your life, then you are setting yourself up for failure. If you do not examine yourself, to see if there are any erroneous or faulty believes that inadvertently slipped in, then your perception of reality can become cloudy, then your focus will shift from your dreams and aspirations in life.

What has always been your dream, that goal or aspirations, that passion you have? Is your goal to become more physically fit, to write a book of poems, to complete that degree you started, to become a more caring and loving person, to be a better parent, wife or husband? Possibly it is something like, learning a new language and being able to travel to other countries to assist the less fortunate. Or perhaps it is something different to these. At times, due to the distractions or pressures exerted on us by various challenges, we forget what our dreams are. If this has happened, to assist you to recall your dreams, goals, aspirations, or passion, you can ask yourself: What have others done that motivated me to say I want to be a part of that, I want to make a similar contribution to society as well? Was it that you wanted to be a teacher, working in the field of early childhood education, or that farmer who owns that business, that dentist or researcher? Sometimes to remind ourselves or get back on track or even to develop in our minds what we want to do in this life of ours, we can permit ourselves to be guided by the positive or meaningful contributions of others. Doing so, can act as a positive stimuli from our surroundings.

You must look at your thinking, your interpretation of events, as they are happening to you. Look at how you have solved problems in the past and how you are approaching them now. Have you stopped synthesizing important data, or critically analyzing the information you have available to you? Are there room for improvement where this is concerned? I can recall occasions when I did not do this and made errors in my judgements.

I remembered once, starting a new job and one of my friends I had known for some time and had respected, was working there also. Now, I had known that she had worked there for some time and had moved up the ranks, as it were. And so, on my first day, I was willing to listen to all the advice I could have gotten.
“Allick, be very careful of the people in this office.” She stated, looking me flush in the eyes.

“Why, something is going on that I needed to know?” A question I should not have asked, but with a side glance at her, demanded more.

“Well, Ms. X cannot be trusted, she did…, and Ms. Y…..”, the list went on and on.
So I went with the view that I had to be cautions. I then looked at myself and thought of all the possible past negative experiences I had, with persons who I perceived had done me wrong. I formulated a response. Thus, based on my developed protective responses to those past situations, I was going to do the same with this job. I thought to myself that I was not going to be caught again. So I said to myself, a good morning will be good enough to give to them, each morning, and that is it. I reasoned that that was not going to take too much out of me. I will eat my lunch in the corner of the room and quickly disappear back to my desk without making eye contact. So you could say, I had a plan to deal with the situation my friend had warned me off.

A couple of months after working at the office, what were my observations? What did I experienced? I had to look at myself, examine my thinking and asked, was there a connection with what I was seeing and what my friend had cautioned? What I observed was the total opposite. Was my workmates devious or cunning, seeking to stir up trouble at the first opportunity they got. No!
My colleague’s experience was hers, I needed to find balance in what she said. I needed to not unfairly judge my new colleagues without giving them the opportunity to demonstrate who they are. After a few more weeks of working with them, I started to have a new experience. I was not shying away from conversations but being actively engaged in the communication process with them, learning much more than I thought was possible in this new job. I had to look within myself and positively “self talk” me, into giving them a chance. Newman & Newman (2006) said that equilibrium or balance in thinking “is achieved through adaptation—a process of gradually modifying existing [beliefs]…of what is known and what is being experienced”. They further mentioned that as “the knower changes, so does what is known”.
