When is FREE Better- When Not

To this point, the most powerful words available to  any Advertiser are free and new.

Genuinely Free Deals Are Irresistible — If There’s a Good Reason

People love free, but they are clearly skeptical of it. They want to feel like they’ve earned the item, or that there’s another good reason for it to be free.

If something really is free and there’s a good reason for it, consumers love it. Free samples of food in the aisles of grocery stores always go like wildfire. People know they get a free sample to lure them into buying a full box or package. That’s a fair exchange.

As much as we love the idea of free, we’re also suspicious of its value.This is the reverse problem with free. Either people don’t trust it, or it diminishes the value of something to worthlessness. There’s this attitude of “why is it free; what’s wrong with it?”

Most people end up getting judged just for going for free products and they have been stereotyped to some level of even being called misers and stingy but that is not exactly the case.

As we go on each day do not turn away from free items just because of the stigma associated with it.  The main point of some products being free is Advertisement.

Live for today,pray for tomorrow

We all get the chance to get through each day,some days are good,some are bad but it is still a chance we get to measure how strong and resilient we are.
Personally,I have just had one of those good days,which is quite rare in my situation,am not insinuating that am a sad person exactly but I tend to long for those days that am genuinely happy and I have realized that it has to come from within me,that I shouldn’t depends on others to make me feel some sort of excitement.
BAD days are the worst….sometimes overwhelming but we get through them dont we?
I just felt like sharing my happiness..y`all have a fantastic time

Your best teacher is your past mistake.

Speaking from a personal perspective,mistakes are usually taken with so much negativity and it’s so hard to see the upside of it all.
We all have the stigma that is associated with reaching the point of accepting that it’s a mistake and  yes,it happened but that’s just it.There’s always a lesson that will come along with it.
God cannot put us through what we can’t overcome.

Blessed day ahead.

WHAT REALLY MATTERS?

Life is without meaning. You bring the meaning to it. The meaning of life is whatever you ascribe it to be. Being alive is the meaning.

The meaning of life is not simply to exist, to survive, but to move ahead, to go up, to achieve, to conquer. There is not one big cosmic meaning for all, there is only the meaning we each give to our life, an individual meaning, an individual plot, like an individual novel, a book for each person.

How different our lives are when we really know what is deeply important to us, and keeping that picture in mind, we manage ourselves each day to be and to do what really matters most.
The way you get meaning into your life is to devote yourself to loving others, devote yourself to your community around you, and devote yourself to creating something that gives you purpose and meaning.
There are three constants in life…
change, choice and principles.
Understanding can overcome any situation, however mysterious or insurmountable it may appear to be.
Have the courage to follow your heart and intuition – they somehow already know what you truly want to become. It takes courage to grow up and become who you really are.

EYE OF THE STORM.

Life is always lived in the eye-of-the-storm. We can let circumstances rule us or we can take charge and rule our lives from within. You gain strength, courage, and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You must do the thing which you think you cannot do.
Stand up to your obstacles and do something about them. You will find that they haven’t half the strength you think they have.
What you get by achieving your goals is not as important as what you become by achieving your goals. The tragedy of life doesn’t lie in not reaching your goal. The tragedy lies in having no goal to reach.
Dare to dream of your great success. Become intimate with those things which deeply motivate you and regularly work toward the realization of that mission.
You will become as small as your controlling desire; as great as your dominant aspiration.

We come this way but once. We can either tiptoe through life and hope we get to death without being badly bruised or we can live a full, complete life achieving our goals and realizing our wildest dreams.
I expect to pass through this world but once. Any good therefore that I can do, or any kindness that I can show to my fellow-creature, let me do it now. Let me not defer or neglect it, for I shall not pass this way again.
To laugh often and much; to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children, to leave the world a better place, to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived, this is to have succeeded.
Life is no brief candle to me. It is a sort of splendid torch which I have got a hold of for the moment,
and I want to make it burn as brightly as possible before handing it on to future generations.

PRAGMATISM.

This is character or conduct that emphasizes practicality.

There are times to rock the boat, But mostly it is better to stay dry than to capsize.

The way you get meaning into your life is to devote yourself to loving others,
devote yourself to your community around you, and devote yourself to creating something that gives you purpose and meaning.

Life is pretty simple: You do some stuff. Most fails. Some works. You do more of what works.
– Leonardo da Vinci.

God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change; the courage to change the things I can; and the wisdom to know the difference.
In matters of style, swim with the current; in matters of principle, stand like a rock.
– attributed to Thomas Jefferson

LIVING FROM THE HEART.
Is today a day to gather strength from the storm – a day to learn life lessons for the next battle? Or is today a day to sit by the fire and watch the storm rage outside?Either way,the storm is just life.Give thanks for all of life.
I will greet this day with love in my heart. Henceforth will I look on all things with love and be born again. I will love the sun for it warms my bones; yet I will love the rain for it cleanses my spirit. I will love the light for it shows me the way; yet I will love the darkness for it shows me the stars .I will welcome happiness as it enlarges my heart; yet I will endure sadness for it opens my soul. I will acknowledge rewards for they are my due; yet I will welcome obstacles for they are my challenge.It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye.- Antoine de Saint-Exupery.
The key to forgiveness is to forgive from the heart -not from the mind.The heart is always right -if there’s a question of choosing between the mind and the heart -because mind is a creation of the society. It has been educated. You have been given it by the society, not by existence. The heart is unpolluted. All that is real is seen with the heart.
Life is not about waiting for the storm to pass… It’s about learning how to dance in the rain.- Vivian GreeneWhen one door of happiness closes, another opens, but often we look so long at the closed doorthat we do not see the one that has been opened for us.- Helen Keller
Life may not be the party we hoped for,but while we are here we might as well dance.- Anonymous

Live for Each Day

Life is the most important gift bestowed to Humans by God. How we choose to spend our time and our focus depends entirely on our priorities.The meaning of life is whatever we choose.

                The very nature of the world is constant change.
                 You set a goal and create a plan to achieve it;
                   then the assumptions on which you
                    based your plan change – they always do.

                      The challenge is to retain your goals
                         while adapting your tactics.
                            Relax and stay flexible in order to reach
                               your goals and maintain your happiness.

 

Time, like life itself, has no inherent meaning.We give our own meaning to time as to life.

Live everyday like its your last day and ensure by the end of each day,when you look back there is something you have done differently in a better way and have made an impact in someone elses life no matter how small or big.

Inspiring quote from Jonathan Lockwood Huie;

Life is unlimited.
Your world expands with the generosity, compassion,
inventiveness, and service that you contribute.
Money that is spent or given away returns multiplied.
The more love that is given, the more love returns.
The more a helping hand is given, the more hands
are strengthened and empowered to help.
We can help each other to all be winners.
We can all have food, and jobs, and love, and happiness.

 

Innocence in Danger

Following the Demise of a female student from JKUAT that happened on Thursday night,it has left many with questions that cannot be answered. The fact that the lady,may she rest in eternal peace it may be a case of love gone sour.Many rumors are going around but the police are still carrying out investigations.

As a member of the JKUAT fraternity,it sinks my heart to hear of such scenarios though rare but i think there should be more sensitization on better communication among ourselves and those living around us.we are each others keepers and it doesn’t hurt to know how whom you’re living next to or seated next to are fairing.

A little act of appreciation goes a long way. Appreciation attracts support one way or another. Do little things now and big things will come to you asking to be done.
