3 Ways People Respond to LIFE… Which is Yours?

I recall a time when one of my cousins came to me telling me all the things happening to him and how he was tired of living. He was subtly threatening me that he wanted to end his life. For some reason my response was spontaneous and harsh; please go and let us know how many of us is remaining to share the limited resources (food) available.

With hindsight, that was a sharp insensitive response that I would not give with a hind sight but the truth is that Life happens to all.  DO YOU RESPONSE OR REACT when life throws its punch at you?

You may be asking what the difference is. There is a huge difference between the 2 and the difference is in the outcome.

Outcome of reaction is irritation, getting stuck, throwing out tantrums at people around you, playing the blame game etc. but the response of response is  inward reflection , outward assessment, taking responsibility , looking for lesson(s) learnt, improved capacity…etc.

The following analogy or experiment perfectly illustrates how we all respond to life struggles when we come across it.

When you take a kettle of water, heat up to boiling temperature, pour the boiling water to the following items (Fresh Egg, Carrot and tea bag) let’s see what happens to them after sometime .

The Egg gets hardened; the carrot becomes soft while the tea bag changed by infusing its content to move from one state to another and at the same time changing the water to tea.

Boiling water is figuratively the life that happens to everyone… no one is immuned to it.

How do you ride on life storms? Like the Eagle that use the storms to soar or the chicken that runs for cover?

How have you responded to life up till now?   CARROT, EGG and TEA BAG.

Is there a need to change? How do you hope to change? Let me hear from you. Share your experience for others to learn from you in the comments.

However there is a lesson for us all.

This is a story that buttresses the point that there is need to be financilly educated which helps plan for the rainy day. NEWSFLASH ! The rainy day must surely come. It comes in different shapes and forms – the good the bad and the ugly somtimes.

I receieved a whattapps mesage from a friend that led me to doing trhis video.
Hello dear friend.
I need help to assist a sister who is going thru traumatic experience. She lost her husband last year due to kidney problem after they did transplant in India.
They sold everything to complete medical bills but the man died months later. Their fist son in final year in the University of Agric could not graduate becos there was no N35,000 for project. Now the boy is at home. He needs to retake final year. School fees is N130k with N35k for project so he can complete his programme.
Can we share N165k together so the boy can go back to school and graduate? I have never met the sister but she was at my younger sisters place today to collect foodstuff to feed the children. May we not be stranded in life.
Thanks so much
Though this is hard but do you this can happen to anyone of us . It is important to have a financial plan as you do other ares of your life.
