Why Are You Here On Earth?
You never decided to come into this world; no one ever did; well, ordinarily! You woke up one day to realise that you were in this world, and living among a number of people at various levels: home or household, neighbourhood or community, town or city, country, continent, world; though the realisation of these various levels happened at different stages in your life. Though you were born with certain instincts (for instance the instinct to cry, crawl, imitate, be inquisitive, etc.) much of what you know now, and the things you are able to do have been by means of elaborate learning processes such as social conditioning, auto-suggestions, etc; both consciously and unconsciously / subconsciously. The following have been some of your major teachers in those learning processes…
These teachers might have influenced / taught you directly in person (home, class, seminar, seminar / workshop, etc.) or through the mass media: internet, radio, television, videos, books, magazines, etc.
Now the first part of the bad news is this… It so happens that even with their best intentions, and effort, chances are that eventually, you have been inadvertently socialised to underestimate your capabilities and are thus using so little of your true / hidden potential (far less than 10 percent of your true / hidden potential) and chances are that your vision / goals are not high enough! Well, you have the opportunity to check and confirm this for yourself; you may click here.
The second part of the bad news is this… Especially based on what they tell you, and most importantly what they refuse to tell you, chances are that you think that life is a smooth linear journey, like…
But life (in it’s truest reality) is much like this…
Let me give you some very serious examples of real life issues that majority of people suffer from, but that which we usually don’t talk about so you don’t normally hear about them…
The Prevalence of Extremely Poor Affection for Occupations
Job dissatisfaction is widespread. Indeed, if you randomly select 100 people and ask about their work life, it should not surprise you to note that 82 of them (i.e, a whopping 82 percent of people) will not be enjoying their work life.
Well, of all the people that go to work every day, only 18 out of 100 (a meagre 18 percent of workers) really feel good about going to work; a whopping 82 percent of people harbour some apprehension when going to work and wish they didn’t have to go to work. This is a major source of stress and ailments; indeed, not too long ago, the BBC announced that work-related stress disorders have been on the increase.
There has been adequate research to understand the various human personality traits found on earth, and the corresponding professions most suited for the respective personality types; for maximum satisfaction and productivity. And there are mainly 6 of such personality types, and a whole lot / range of jobs / professions most suited for each of them. Among other things, participants will get to know the 6 personality types and the recommended career types.
Most People Are Not Truly Fulfilled in Life!
Two incidences that hit the headlines in week thirty-seven were that, Jarrid Wilson (Pastor and author of “Love Is Oxygen: How God Can Give You Life and Change Your World”) and Gregory Eells (Executive director of counseling and psychological services, and head of mental health services at University of Pennsylvania) had committed suicide. I dare say that these incidences were just a tip of the iceberg; everyday people commit suicide, and that cut across all classes of people. Also, many people contemplate suicide but don’t get to execute it; some also attempt suicide but somehow do not get to complete it. It’s that serious! The point is that life can be very tough! Let’s not be deceived by the fine faces we mostly see around and the seemingly exciting lives people are living on social media. Behind the fine faces, people are stressed!
The consequences of stress are so serious; to the extent that, most of the ailments people report to the hospitals with, are not pathogenic (they are not the effects of disease causing organisms) but rather, they are the consequences of stress. It’s that serious!
Life in this world is a tough one – ordinarily; it means there will be many situations that will arouse various forms of emotions, which if not well managed can affect you negatively; your health and your wealth. Fortunately, there are simple and effective ways of dealing with emotions, and preventing undue stress. For instance, all negative emotions can be classified under 10 core emotions, and there are specific messages they provide, and specific ways of responding. For example, when you feel frustrated, the simple core message you’re to note is that ‘You are using a wrong approach in dealing with that which is making you frustrated.’ It implies that, you need to change either your perception, or your procedure, or both; and so on. This bothers on the subject of Emotional Intelligence; most people do not know about the need to manage their own emotions, and the emotions of other people, let alone how to go about it.
Most People Do Not Know About Their True Potential; Thus They Make Little Or No Effort to Unearth / Harness That True / Hidden Potential; They Waste Their True / Hidden Potential
The fact is, majority of people underestimate their capabilities and thus use very little of their true potential, especially their brain power.
To illustrate further, assuming that the white cylinder shown is what the brain is capable of achieving throughout your lifetime on earth, then ordinarily, what you are likely to achieve with it is the green speck shown against the yellow cylinder; the yellow cylinder represents the comparative proportion of what you are likely to refuse to use your brain for: the books that will not be written, the businesses that will never be created, the theories that will remain unknown, the happiness, health and wealth that you may refuse to create, and so on! And thus the prevalence of (i) extremely poor affection for occupations, and (ii) stress; etc.
I intend to keep this presentation short so let me direct you to more examples later. For now let me emphasise that because the problems are so common or prevalent (though we don’t normally talk about them) chances are that you may be affected by them and suffer the consequences if you do not guard yourself against them.
The point in focus is that a truly fulfilling life is very important; however, very rare! But, how so? Why is this the case?
It is because of our education; or rather lack of total / adequate education. Really? But we go to school for a good number of years, so what am I talking about? Well, surprisingly (perhaps not so surprisingly) formal education / schooling (as we currently have it) does not address the problems; indeed, formal education / schooling alone cannot! Let me tell you a little more about this…
Inference drawn from a study carried out by Harvard University indicates that, ordinarily, the formal education system is able to harness / contribute up to just 22 percent of people’s true effectiveness and greatness in life. Studies done under the auspices of other institutions like the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching yielded similar results. In essence, education and schooling are not the same thing! And formal education (schooling) alone cannot give us the needed results!
Ideally, the religious organisations should be filling in the gap, and providing that needed complementary education but our religious organisations have not taken the bull by the horn, and I discuss that in details in my radio interview on “What the Church Refuses to Teach About Christianity;” you may click here to see that.
To summarise what I’ve shared so far, I will say that life is mostly tough because ordinarily we do not get adequate life-coaching in our upbringing, and we also do not get the continual social support we so much require even in grown-up periods.
