Awareness about your life and world at large

Welcome to LnM, we tend to write subjects of our own and avoid catchy topics because we might not do justice. Today’s topic about Self-awareness and your surroundings cannot be far from significance, that’s why we thoughts it could be a good idea to talk about this and really take a moment for yourself to embrace it.

Make it, your life mission to seize a moment

Missing a point, missing your mark and really not having a north star is really other people’s reality but please make sure to not be yours reading this. Do the math, calculate your moves ahead of time like they do in chess and when you hit your target celebrate and be aware that’s is happening and seize that’s tiny moment.

When I was growing up, I didn’t know there were so much possibilities in the world and how really successful people spend their days. Then one day I found myself excited, I was buying my 1st property and paying for my girlfriend damages for impregnating her. In short I was manifesting the person I always claim to be, business minded and responsible but that’s not what’s got me excited. What’s got me happy was looking how far has I come in life and still manage to reach those goals.

Back to you looking at your achievements, do they still resonate with you today? Were they worth it or what’s everybody expect you to do? Do you impact your experiences or you don’t plan your days? It’s important to ask yourselves this questions because they will show you if you are living or just hustling towards your dearth date.

If you not sure what’s happening around you and within you ,or look at your emotions from outside looking in you will have a problem of not knowing how to deal with those circumstances. For example the feeling you feel after an argument, and how you handle that’s situation is a different between a person who act out of anger and a person who act out of thoughts and bigger picture.

Be aware of things beyond your control and those within it

The natural disaster is out of your control, beating yourself for the damage it has done is something you should do less and get back to pick up pieces and put your life back together. Today I was talking to a guy, who we meet mostly for music related stuff and when he was leaving we started talking general stuff. Being the person that’s I am I gave him a chance to speak and I had to dismiss most of the things he say’s but not arguing but for showing him my perspective.

The pandemic is out of my control as an average person and how ever its affect the world or SA economy that’s not my primary concern which was my answer to what’s we were talking about. My primary concern it’swhat’s I can control, my personal finances and my lifestyle, he got me and we changed the subject.

So you too guard your mind from talking about things that’s don’t connect much to you in a community level , I think the reason why people spend a lot of time talk about corruption and the lot of money that’s is borrowed by our government it’s because they don’t have their own money to worry about. If you are one of those, you need to do a self-check all the news and things that’s try to come to you as important analyses them and look at them as they are, things that’s won’t matter in 6 months.

But if you start cultivating good relationships now and maintain them with right people in the same 6 months you will be ahead in life. If you start saving your money for a certain investment at the end of the year you will have something to be proud of except your bonus.

Find a way to hold yourself accountable

This Blogs are just that’s ,at some point you reading them you will want to know me better and I would like to reveal more of me and my friend but we owe it to you to be way successful 1st then take a full stand behind our teachings ,so this is our way of holding ourselves accountable.

What’s will be your way? How will you build a self-discipline and do the hard things in your life to put yourself to the position to win? There are things that’s people do that’s looks easy but are actually hard, and there are those that’s are easy but looks hard for e.g. working for a boss who will give you daily tasks is much easier than what’s your boss does managing and trying to scale the company and looking a job for you in the process while making sure you do it.

A person working on assembly line is doing an easy repetitive job, compare to a person sitting in a computer working his mind off trying to balance a company account or preparing a presentation for the board. So in all of that I encourage you to find that’s challenging work or build it for yourself after work so your life will have a meaning than being on a cruise control and having things easy. Why this is important, easy things don’t require much discipline and you can do them even in the last minute and no extra effort necessary and if what’s you do is that’s way ,then you won’t have anything to hold yourself accountable in. Your mistakes are taken by your supervisor, who has to deal with a manager and you can be reckless knowing that’s the decision to get you out of the door is that’s hard.

The goal of this is not for you to resent your present job ,but be aware you can do better in your life ,for those who’ve been selling in the streets you might be making decent money but you have to improve your vision and don’t settle .keep learning and apply what’s you learn and if you scared leave someone else in your spot while you try to do better.

Happiness is a buy product of living life accordingly

Happiness is a serious subject and you need to study it, so you won’t conflict it with other subjects like having money or being riply fit and so on. Although that’s is important but into an individual level there is enlightenment that’s most people hardly reach ,and we or I’m not also there yet but I tend to understand something the more I learn the less paranoid I become.

To you that’s can be ,the more I spend time with my family ,the more I get to know they better and thus be able to associate with them. Family is something’s that’s has an automatic effect ,you don’t choose it yet when you have it ,you don’t necessary wish to be with other family .You can envy what’s they have but you know deep down my home is way warmer .

I have been set to be aware of work ,family ,health ,finance and people to make my life happy , meaning if I got all of that’s right I won’t have a happiness problem of Couse stress now and again but knowing how to deal with people will reduce it.

Working is very important, and nothing seems to beat it. During lockdown I got a gf in Twitter because somehow I’m still browsing then the moment ,she got back to her real life ,which I assume is work and maybe other things she didn’t tell me about ,I lost her clearly that’s wasn’t my girlfriend yet and I was so naïve to open up so quickly ,she might have been overwhelmed by my straight forwardness but that’s moment hurt me and I’m still dealing with it and I’m aware of my misstep’s , I saw some of the red flags of why our relationship might not work but dismissed it. So from that life experience of mine please be careful of looking for happiness in places that’s don’t have any track record of that’s. And pay attention to the details.

Know yourself

Know what’s rub you off the wrong way and try to avoid it by any mean , For me being committed early to relationships hurt me and I really need to work on that’s. Know what’s lift your spirit up and seek it but not leaving important things seeking this feeling. Know your strengths and weaknesses and improve and bet more on what you already finds easy if it has a better rewards in your life.

This piece is mainly about self and unless you in a right place you cannot deal with the world around you. And if you are not special in any way you cannot be different from people around you then that’s the weakness unless people around you are successful and depending to your definition of success, if your nearest surrounding has all you want in terms of character, material things and more then you doing somewhat well in your life because those people won’t let you in their cycle if you don’t have what’s its takes to be like them some day. 

Other thing know that’s there is no highest level keep pushing the bar higher and take other people advices with a grain of salt including this ones and make the decisions you can be able to live with.

It’s important to find yourself bored sometimes

We are living in a noisy era and I can add it’s been like this for many centuries before this one but we can all agree that’s its getting worse. It’s important to get back to the surface and accepts times of boredom, it may seems like Lockdown was the worst thing that’s has happened in our lifetime but I assure you it’s the best thing, you can start looking at your life objectively.

If things are going smooth during times like this its means you on a right path but if you are hit a bit than that a wakeup call. From financial stand point its clearly means diversifying your investment might be a smart move. Personally you can start practice things like meditations and gym and really incorporate those on your life. Learn mantra’s and all, this are tools to deal with boredom at a highest level and really pay attention to your thoughts.

What’s your life manstra? we all need one of those

If you get too busy, make time to do nothing

You see this is not a public information, no one suggests this in their writings and YouTube videos. It’s all grind and hard work now, that’s ok and but I suggests you get in a zone to be at that’s work mode state so you can switch from your work life, home life and your own physic personal life that’s is at individual level. The phone might be the 1st thing you might need to control and really cut it usage during this time.

I have eliminated the noise on my phone and I constantly find myself bored every moment and then something amazing happen I only think the thoughts that will propel me forward in life. That’s might not happen to you because the content you consume with your busy time and people you hang with don’t put any good information to your mind , you might want to change that’s as well so you will have good ideas and breakthrough during this boredom time.

Having pen and paper always in your disposal can be really be helpful , and don’t think sleeping put you in a mode of doing nothing that’s not true ,your body and mind is always busy and create dreams and nightmare at night mess with your heartbeat a bit.

You will see you have a negative habits when you are bored

I experienced this, if you have extra cash at hand you hurt yourself with it, but if you have a strong will power and discipline you are able to choose apples over hot dog to buy and eat that’s moment. Same to boredom, access to porn or movies and internet entertainment can lead you to want to spend your time doing those things in your free time you set to do nothing. I suggest you fight this urges that’s drives you to want to relax this way. I repeat hit pushups and go hard and couple of sets, play a self-improvement audiobook while you are doing that’s. To those who smokes I know you guys always have something to pass time and that’s not nothing , don’t roll that’s blunt even a snap is way better to your doing nothing time but make sure it doesn’t fall to lazy time. If you have something to do during your nothing time and its urgent please do it and make up for that’s loss time. Hanging out with gents or ladies and talking might seems good at the moment but it will mess with all your growth and beliefs.

Something fascinate me, I have a friend we used to be close really close but since I evolve and grow from every aspect of my life, he no longer want to hang with me the pressure I put on him is too much and I understand and that became a blessing in disguise because instead of going to hang with him I listen to audio book or be busy in my music studio work. Now I have learned to mix my songs because that’s used to be his work but since he no longer want to see me then I keep my distance.

Other friend of mine bought dogs and now I’m scared of dog’s .I don’t like them but it’s nothing personal so I can’t visit that’s friend as well and others are far from where I live so ,now I’m responsible for the company coming into my life because I’m no longer going anywhere. I want you reading to pay attention to all of those who you try to squeeze yourself in their lives, is it worth it. Obviously friendship is nice and important, but now since there is a new distance you can also distance yourself emotionally, sometimes we help our friends because we know their daily routine but now since there is this gab when he/ she needs help its won’t be coming from a friend stand point, that’s might be a way for that’s person to use you on something that’s no longer exist.

You can be able to be proactive rather than reactive

If you can learn this skill alone to accept boredom, you can stop reacting to other peoples reasons for you to get out, you can plan things ahead and really take charge of most of your actions. And this time can open a window for you to re-access what’s really working and where your efforts is spent.

I started writing this blogs , while I had a nice job where I stay inside my work place and go at home only in weekends ,finish work at 16:00 every day ,I’ll hit a gym ,cook ,bath and write then when I sleep I put an interesting TV series that’s will help me fall asleep. Now I’m no longer at that’s job, I’m home now and my life is back and I can do everything I want with my time but it’s would be a big mistake giving up on this project . I’m proactive about it, with that’s said no matter where your life takes you, have this nothing time installed in you, walk around and get your mind thinking.

  • Our 1st song

Why I wrote this controversial topic

From a workaholic view or burn outs that’s might be a thing but people who are moving at that’s pace has a great work ethic and I recommend it. Reading and writing is working too so to all people who like to work physically, move to other skills like listening and really pay attention and connects all the necessary dots to things you listening to .If your girlfriend or spouse talk, be able to process in their tone what’s important and what’s not, Back to the topic, the reason I wrote this I saw a guy I look up too really get frustrated when pandemic began and everything around it.

Since he had to stop working and all the systems he is involved in gat hited a bit now seeing him trying to convince authority to open the doors of work, made me realize there is never one dope strategy to live life and workaholic is really not one of them, that’s why smart should come through and really get away from things that’s seems to make up your life.

At home they call me, the moment I leave home for 2 days and that’s ok but at some point they should see me leaving and really get disconnected a bit intentionally, why? Because circumstances can do this as well, so why we are not practicing as people? They why we take so much hit when a family member passes, we don’t anticipate this moments. Family is important but balance is really recommended, I love my mother and father but the fact that’s I don’t live with them is a real relief the pain is not the same.

So you can count your blessings during that’s time

Social media has become our diaries, but this things disappear and they are now trying to monitor our memories and that’s good but even if you find yourself having amnesia those memories won’t resonate with you. Memories worth remembering you will always remember so, I suggest you don’t take social media’s features seriously and embed them too much in your life.

Have offline tools instead, if you download an offline calendar even if the company who made it, closes you will remain having it. Back to the subtitle Blessings, do you make time to be thankful for things you have achieved? If you too busy you cannot do that’s and moving forward you can’t keep up because you won’t have a north star, you just drifting through life.

Gratitude and be conscious of things that’s are going well in your life, can be a cool realization. I always heard that’s successful rich people hit a gym and trying that’s has showed me wonders, I once hit a gym and felt so fresh and I saw that’s right now I’m really healthy. I can add don’t overdo things, that’s their impact can be undercut by other life challenges. Hitting 2hrs of gym and 0 on your finances is not a smart way to spend your do nothing time.

Stop thinking and start strategizing, I thought strategy was a critical thing a person can do but all it is, is plan of action now thinking is important because you going to think though the strategy .Bu saying I’m thinking of buying a car, is far from saying on December I’m buying a car because I’m saving R4000 a month and my Bonus is so much if I put it, I can get the car I’m aiming for. Now that’s strategy my brothers and sisters.

5 Key ways to get / acquire information

I think this will be the one of the important subjects to cover since this week we release our 1st book. It was crucial for us to release it because we didn’t want to answer same questions over and over. We live in technological era where the computer and phones technologies are so powerful and efficient but still some people still don’t know how to acquire information that’s they need. The word research might frighten you but it should , for us is basically looking for information we need , nothing more nothing less so today we want to share how we do it.

  1. We make use of Google and YouTube

Here how we use this tools, instead of knowing, how to search movies, music and TV series that’s we can entertain ourselves with we prefer looking for insight that’s we can grow our soft skills (Reading, writing and thinking) and mind with. This is a music artists blog but we going to be broad a bit in our topics because we see most people relate and can apply what’s we share in their niche so we don’t want to keep ourselves in the box and at the same time we not trying to push you away.

So Google its simple if you have connection data on your network provider you can get in a browser app and search for everything you want by starting your sentences like How to? , Who is or was which is and then put your full question. Look at all the answers and choose wisely and try to not get destructed by ads, take what’s you need and get out. Websites like Qoura and Pinterest usually pop up because their information sites and people have already answered your questions so those should be a obvious go to or Blogs like this one have the information you need. YouTube usually pop up there as well but if its something you want to learn practically or you want someone to explain to you, you can go directly to YouTube and ask on their search the subject you want.

  • 2 Read a book on it.

Sometimes a quick Google search is not enough for the topic you want to learn that’s why we suggest a book. So this is hard for us in South Africa reading a book or books but this has to stop because our country is behind on everything in the world because this basic skill is not yet mastered by a large number of populations. The only way to falling love with reading is starting by reading articles about interesting subject like money then your curiosity may lead you to taking a book .or read about the topic of your choice that’s where you will find everything for that’s time being you can use to win in that’s area of your life. As a music artist you can read biography of Michael Jackson or 2pac I promise you there is lessons there or read 50th of Law by 50cent and Robert Green. I have another option which is Audio books and they’re my hacks you may think I have read so many book while actually I download audios and replay them they are same as paper books in format but it’s a person reading for you only thing you need is a space to listen.

2020 release
  • 3 Do what you want to learn and fail or luckily be good right away.

Today’s article maybe something we already know, but we want to reinforce to you do them, if you are doing them you are in the write path. This point is about figure something out by actually doing it .Now go and do it…

  • 4 Don’t be lazy about it

The best thing you can do for yourself is acquiring data, I know we spend a lot of time on whatsapp, watching each other’s status and we have nothing of substance going in our lives and we need to wake up and figure out what’s we can do with all the time we are wasting and now we helping you get information 1st about money how to make it ,how to keep it and how to grow it. We think it’s everybody’s responsibility to take care of their financial education because schools didn’t teach it not it’s a lock down get down to your numbers and really know how much is in your account and where you putting it in general, are you spending or investing .Lets start a habit of saving money. Then move to relationships, study love relationships and other form of relationships so that’s you won’t cause your friend or partner stress when drifting through life by not being a competent lover. And be open minded ,your spouse may suggests saving or sending kids to private school always give things a thoughts before deciding ,don’t say we didn’t grew up like this or your partner is living life by a book there is no such thing , you just being lazy to grow and take those responsibilities. Pay attention and learn from everything good or bad, especially bad.

tag us everytime you hit a new post , we want to know how you think and hold you accountable

  • 5 Get info from your past mistakes

It’s a hard one but you have to have some balance, see when you hire people to do some work for you once others take the money they don’t finish the work, so what’s must you do? Pay them half and pay them more lately. The problem with this people are not the same and as important to do contracts and have deals in place dealing with money where I’m from we seems to have no time for that’s .I don’t have a solution for you yet either we have to do the search and figure this out or its will hurt us constantly .But the rule of thumb is finish your job and get paid.

The challenge and skill other contractors use now is very hand bending, they give you a invoice you pay then they do the service for you with a due date as well. You should look into that’s as well.

Thanks for checking out today’s article, its cant be always be about music, although we are musicians but we are human beings and that’s why this topic was important, share to anyone who might need it.
