Most Famous Wiz Khalifa Quotes About Life

Cameron Jibril Thomaz was born on September 8, 1987. He is better known by his stage name Wiz Khalifa. He is a professional American rapper. In 2006, he released his first full-length album entitled Show and Prove. In 2007, he signed up to Warner Bros. Records where he released two mixed tapes. In 2009, he parted ways with Warner Bros. Records because of the delay of releasing his planned debut album from the label. In 2011, he released his first studio album entitled Rolling Papers. It debuted at the second spot of the illustrious Billboard 200 chart. The same year, he was nominated and won the Best New Artist at the BET Awards. The BET awards recognize Americans in music, acting, sports, and other fields of entertainment.

Wiz Khalifa is not just famous for his music but also for his wise and cunning words. Following are some of the most famous quotes of Mr. Khalifa about life.

“The things that we crave the most are the things that destroy us the quickest.”

Perhaps, Mr. Khalifa is referring to addiction. Addiction can come in different forms. It can be addiction in drugs, alcohol, vices, women and men, food and so on. The rule is to take everything in moderation and avoid those things that will hard our bodies and our being. If we are hungry, feed. If we like to drink wine or any alcoholic drinks do it in moderation.

“Great minds think alone.”

This quote is about being independent. There are people who function more productively when they are alone. If you are a fan of sci-fi movies, probably you have seen scenes where one great man would come up with a remarkable invention. This quote can somehow contradict the famous quote, “no man is an island”. Although it is true that man can never live alone. There are times in life when we need some time alone to think and to contemplate.

“Some people make your life better by walking into it while other people make your life better by simply walking out of it.”

This quote can refer to friends and frenemies. Friends can make our life better because they can offer comforting words and wise criticism. Frenemies are friends that can’t be trusted. They belong to the same circle of friends. They say words that bring you down. Having them walk out of your life can make life better.

“Good things come in good time.”

Be patient and never lose hope. If you are expecting something, do not force it to happen. Outcomes may not be so great if you force it. Remember that patience is a virtue. Wait for the right time and everything will come as expected.

“Being single doesn’t necessarily mean you’re available. Sometimes you have to put up a sign that says ‘Do Not Disturb’ on your heart.”

This is true. Many people think that when you are single you are available. What if you are single because the person you are seeing passed away. Dating takes time. It may be too soon to fall in love. We always have to be considerate. Confirm if that person is ready to fall in love before asking him or her out for a date.

“Sometimes we waste too much time to think about someone who doesn’t even think about us for a second.”

We often waste time thinking about someone who does not even think about us, for example a high school crush or a person you just met in the corridor. As they say, do not stress yourself with people who do not even deserve to be an issue in your life.

Wiz Khalifa’s quotes are very inspiring. It tackles every facets of man’s life. If you need a little cheering up, read quotes and be motivated.

Building Self-Esteem in Your Spouse – 10 Sure-Fire Methods

A lack of self-esteem can damage any relationship. In marriage especially it can cause a lot of problems. A spouse suffering from low self-esteem can contribute to infidelity, child or spousal abuse, divorce or financial trouble. If your spouse has low self-esteem and you don’t think it matters, you might find out the hard way that it really does make a lot of difference.

This kind of problem can erode the foundations of your relationship until there is not much left. This might take years to happen and then the spouse will just blow up. Obviously this can have catastrophic results on the relationship.

You cannot force any to have more self-esteem because it has to come from within themselves. Saying that, it is possible to encourage them to work on self-esteem issues, even though you should not expect overnight results.

Here are some tips for building self-esteem in your loved one:

1. Offer them unconditional love. Whatever they do or don’t do, show your love for them. If their behavior is upsetting you, discuss this with them but do it together. Everyone makes mistakes. If they make a mistake, show that you still love them regardless.

2. Be supportive. Make sure your spouse knows they have your full support. If someone else is criticizing your partner, you need to defend him or her from this. The relationship between a husband and wife is supposed to supersede other relationships. You need to stand by your spouse fully and show total support.

3. Be respectful to your spouse. Don’t be a doormat but do show respect. Use words like please and thank you and avoid treating him or her like a child. Doing that or nagging is disrespectful and demeaning and will crush their self-esteem even more. Someone with low self-esteem often feels they don’t deserve respect. Respect will make them feel better and can help to build their self-esteem.

4. Be appreciative so your partner is aware that you appreciate the things they do. Whether it is cleaning the bathroom or cooking a meal, let them know you appreciate the gesture. Tell them they make a great parent if you have kids. If you are being honest and loving, you will see many things your spouse does which you can praise them for.

5. Make sure to share the credit. If your spouse is suffering from low self-esteem, they might not see how they are contributing to the marriage and family every day. Point out these things to others and to your spouse. Let your spouse know how much you value their abilities and how much it helps.

6. Help your spouse to discover any hidden talents. Ask them about what they can do well or like to do or would even like to learn to do. Encourage them to do more of this or take a class. Perhaps you will both be interested and can learn or practice together.

7. Sometimes it is nice to do little things “just because”, such as giving gifts, leaving notes and doing other special things for your partner. These things can (and should) be done outside special occasions too.

8. Never be deprecating, in private or in public. Don’t put your spouse down or make generalized comments like “you never take out the trash” or “you always leave a mess in the kitchen”. These comments will make your spouse feel they do everything wrong. And saying bad things about them in public is never acceptable and will just embarrass them and knock them down emotionally.

9. Show that you are interested in them. Do you know their favorite animal or color? Do you know their ambitions and dreams? Find out these things and use the information. If you find out your wife likes turtles, buy her a turtle ornament, for example, “just because”. Find out her favorite dinner and make it for her. This demonstrates your love and care for your spouse by actions, which speak louder than words. Asking questions about what your spouse likes and doesn’t like is a great way to build intimacy and show that you are interested in everything about them.

10. Remember not to go it alone. Asking “what is your opinion?” is very important, especially in a marriage. You must always take your partner’s views into consideration when making a decision. Whether it is a major purchase or just a small thing, ask what your spouse thinks. Whether you are deciding where to go on vacation or changing the color of the bedroom carpet, ask them. This tells them that you trust and value them and this can greatly enhance your marriage.

Healthy self-esteem ensures a happy, fulfilling marriage. Taking the time to implement the above ideas can help to build your spouse’s self-esteem and make the two of you, plus any children you have, happier together. It might take weeks, or even months, to build up someone’s self-esteem but if you use these ideas, hopefully it will be a great success in the end.

The Law Of Attraction In Action – The Path of Desperation Vs Letting Go To Achieve Your Life Goals

We’ve all had those times in life where we wanted something so badly, that we could taste it, feel it, or hear it. You know what I’m talking about. It could be the girl of your dreams, the car of your dreams or just that dream job you’ve always wanted. One thing is for sure, we all have been there.

When it comes to wanting things really badly, the word that comes to my head is ‘desperation’.

From my experience, nothing drives a goal further away from you as desperation.

It’s kind of funny though that some schools of thoughts equate being desperate about a goal, or wanting it so badly, is showing the universe or God how serious you are about that goal or objective.

Oh really?

I personally think not. It is my experience that wanting something so badly, or being desperate about it only leads to one making the wrong decisions. You aren’t making decisions from the flow, or from joy or gratitude. No Way! When you are in a state of desperation, you are almost on the verge of feeling hopeless, or giving up completely (in a negative sense).

Here’s my friend’s account of his experiences after leaving university and in desperate need of money and support, and how he overcomes the challenges using the power of letting go:

” I was so desperate for money once, I almost got myself into a money laundering ring. The circumstances were interesting as I look back in retrospect. It’s almost as if some force was driving me to make the wrong decisions through financial desperation. Let me go further into details.

My girlfriend of four years at the time had broken up with me, saying that she needed ‘space’ at first, giving no obvious reason. When I look back, that was meant to protect me from the fact that she had met someone else who suited her material needs at the time. Note that we were both university students at the time.

So one month turned into three months, and then she begun to drop tidbits about the fact that she had started dating again, by hinting to me that I should start seeing other people. I told her no worries, as I’m in the process of seeking employment, so I’ll put that on the back burner.

I was a fairly decent lad at the time, not worrying much about money, and material things. My main concerns were keeping my mind, body and spirit active and positively engaged in beneficial pursuits.

What turned me to the ‘dark side’ was the call I received that fateful day from my then girlfriend who only wanted ‘space’. She called me explaining that she’ll be sending me some pictures of here with a new hairdo. I was like cool, because she knew I liked her haircuts short. So she sent me the pictures via email, and I saw her in this car; it was a really sexy drop top beetle. I thought it was one of her girlfriends, so I was like “you look sexy in that car. Which girlfriend of yours got this beauty from her rich dad” I said jokingly. Then she dropped the bomb on me. She told me “This is the car of a guy I’m currently seeing. He’s owns a successful business and he’s in his thirties”. My jaw dropped.

Keep in mind that we’re both students. Whatever monies I made in my side jobs, I shared with this girl, because I loved her. I was a few months away from graduating, and was actively job hunting.

When she told me those words, I felt as if I was stabbed in the back. What added salt to the injury was that she considered him a ‘good man’ and that I should be happy for her, with her newfound ‘friend’. I was angry, I started shouting over the phone, and then I hung up.

Thus began level one of desperation and depression. I couldn’t sleep for two nights as my blood was boiling. So I came to terms with the fact that she moved on. The only weird thing though is that she wanted to keep in touch with me, which I was totally against. I was OK with it for a few months, then around December, things took another turn for the worst.

I received an innocent text at first stating ” Hi, what are you up to this Christmas holiday?” I was like “nothing, just chilling. What about you?” Boy, did I open a world of emotional hurt for myself by asking that innocent question. She proceeded to tell me how she will be going to her new boyfriend’s parent’s home in the countryside for the Christmas vacation so that he can introduce her to his family.

Note that we were together for four years, while it was only four months she met this guy.”

Enter desperation level two.

Desperation level two is interesting, in that it is wanting fast money, coupled with the desire for revenge and greed.

“So here I was, desperate for cash, and also wanting revenge, to prove that I can get the money also, because, as my ex girlfriend had shown, material wealth was her weakness, and I was on the scarcity end of the wealth scale.

Now I was on a mission to make quick money in as little time possible and to prove to prove to my ex that I could be materially successful also. Terrible combination! Had I accepted the fact that my ego was bruised and I was emotionally scarred, I would have gotten over it quicker. But, apparently, life had other plans for me.”

Letting go of wanting to control the outcome of a situation can be the hardest thing to do, but with persistence, you will be successful.

“I started hanging out with the wrong crowds, engaging in shady financial activity, and considering money laundering. I just wanted to have it all, the money, the cars the women. The promise of huge amounts of money in your bank account for just being a middle man, is very enticing, especially if you are a broke student who has just finished university, and in need of employment to pay your bills.

It was only after my second thwarted shady financial transaction that I realized it just wasn’t meant to be and I should walk away.

I’ve heard stories about divine intervention, but I never experienced such until one day I felt extremely low, having no money, with a wounded ego and heart.

I was crossing the road feeling low, when suddenly the words rang clear in my head: “you are not a loser. You were meant to succeed. All is not lost”. It felt like the scene in Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King, where Frodo collapses after the fight with Gollum for the ring, outside Shelob’s lair. Frodo collapses, only to be given a hand up by the lady Galadriel of the Wood Elves, whispering words of encouragement to him.

There was more to it, but I was so inspired, that I took another turn in my life for the better.

I ended all communication with my then ex girlfriend who seemed to be getting some sort of twisted pleasure rubbing in my face all the things that her new boyfriend did for her, which I couldn’t because of the cost involved. In the New Testament of the Bible, Jesus Christ said “Forgive Your enemies 77 x 7” and “turn the other cheek”. I do that, but I take it a step further, I forgive, but instead of forgetting, I remember, I keep a mental note and chuck it to experience.

I started accepting my financial and relationship situations, and let go wanting to control the outcomes of my life with regards to the goals I set to achieve. I began investing in self help courses, such as the Sedona Method, started meditation, and emotional freedom technique (EFT) tapping.

They really helped, and I continue to practice them to this day.

Going back to my story, after I began the process of acceptance and letting go, I started going out and dating again, and had relationships with three other beautiful young women. I must stress that this wouldn’t have been the case had I been desperate for a relationship. It’s funny because, the opposite was true. I was not looking for a relationship at all. I was just out for fun.

With regards to my physical, I began exercising more, and was in a better place of physical health. I received frequent compliments on my physique, and how good I looked. Here again, I demonstrate that I wasn’t looking to be some sexy stud. I was just exercising because it made me feel more alive, and the gym was a perfect escape for me from my dead end job, and my crappy living conditions.

Now with regards to the financial aspects of my life, the situation was a bit ticklish; I was stuck between a rock and a hard place. What I mean is that I found it hard not to want more money when money was exactly the thing needed to pay my rent, transportation costs and buy food. So that was really a dilemma for me. I struggled with it for awhile, then I gave up on it, never quite letting go of my wanting to control my financial future.

Understand that wanting to control, and actually having control are two different things.

I struggled financially for 3 more months until I decided to head back to my parents’ home from the city. My focus was on complete rehabilitation then. But an interesting thing happened: while back home, I received two job offers. Here again, I want to emphasize that I did not want a job at the time. I gave myself six months to regroup myself, and the job offer landed when I didn’t consider getting one.”

Thus ends my friend’s story. I gleaned so much knowledge from that account, and I hope you the reader, gleans some valuable insight.

Hence my point that wanting something desperately, as compared to wanting it, then letting go of that wanting, seems, in my experience, to push the object of your desire further away from you.

What is it that you currently desire desperately, that the thought of letting go will seem irresponsible? Is it a better career? Is it more money to clear your overwhelming debt? Is it a partner you crave to feel less lonely?

Whatever it is, think ahead 5 years into the future. Picture yourself having achieve that goal. Now, imagine that you are that future self. What would you tell your struggling self in this moment? Would you tell yourself to continue being desperate and needy, and anxious about your goal, or desire? Or, would you, as your future self, tell your struggling self to just relax and take life one day at a time, because eventually you will achieve your goal?

The thing about goals is that sometimes we worry too much, or let anxiety or peer pressure get the better of us. The goal might not manifest when we want it to, but it will manifest. One has to be patient first with oneself, then the universe.

Letting go of one’s expectations is the key. This is not to be confused with not taking action. You take the right action, such as set up your dream board, do you daily visualization, say your affirmations, meditate, pray, whatever it takes to keep you in that positive frame of mind. But, you must also let go of the attachment to the expected outcome, because other miracles might manifest on your journey to achieving your goal, which you might not notice since you are so obsessed with that particular goal, and your limited perception of its outcome.

So, take a deep breath, relax, and practice letting go of your expectations so that you will accelerate the manifestation of your goal or vision, or something even better.

There are many courses out there that facilitate in the acceptance and letting go processes. Some of the daily techniques I use are from the Sedona Method and the Silva Life System.

French Love Phrases – Quotes, Poems and Inspiration

Looking for french love phrases and unique ideas for expressing romance?

I love you in french (je t’aime) are words you are probably already familiar with. So what other french love phrases could you use (that are a bit more original?)

For something short and sweet, you could try:

  • amour de ma vie (love of my life)
  • je t’aime de tout mon coeur (I love you with all my heart); or
  • a toi, pour toujours (yours forever).

Mon cher (referring to guy), ma chère (referring to girl) means my dear; there are some very cute ones too, like ma cocotte (which literally means my hen, but roughly translated is darling, honey, or babe .

Other charming ways to speak to your sweetie is by calling them mon chou (my pastry) or ma puce (my flea).

But maybe you’re looking for something that goes much deeper than this (after all…love can be complicated!) French love quotes and french love poems are great sources of inspiration.

You could take french love quotes from famous writers, movies or songs, for example.

Take this one by french romantic novelist George Sand:

Il n’y a qu’un bonheur dans la vie, c’est d’aimer et d’être aimé.

There is only one happiness in life, to love and be loved.

Or try quoting from Edith Piaf, popular in the 1940s and 1950s for her love songs, such as “La Vie en Rose” (Life through rose coloured glasses:)

Quand il me prend dans les bras

Il me parle tout bas

Je vois la vie en rose

When he takes me in his arms

and speaks to me softly

I see the world through rose-colored glasses

French love poems are wonderfully romantic and evocative.

You can find all styles of french love poems, depending on what kind of mood you want to convey – happy, passionate, flirtatious, longing, regretful, and so on.

Quoting from french love poems can be a very effective way to express something. Imagine having a romantic weekend in Paris, maybe you’re celebrating an anniversary or planning to pop the question. You can whisper words in french or write a romantic letter.

So where do you find these french love poems? The first place to look is the Romantic Movement, which started roughly in the late 18th century. Some of the finest poets who wrote in this style include Victor Hugo, Charles Baudelaire, François-René de Chateaubriand, Alphonse de Lamartine, and Alfred de Musset.

You can visit your local foreign language bookstore, or even do a search for books online. Et voila! You will be wowing your loved one with beautiful french love phrases, in no time!

We’ll finish up with a poem by Victor Hugo, considered one of the greatest french romantic poets; together with an English translation:

Aimons toujours ! Aimons encore !

Quand l’amour s’en va, l’espoir fuit.

L’amour, c’est le cri de l’aurore,

L’amour c’est l’hymne de la nuit.

Ce que le flot dit aux rivages,

Ce que le vent dit aux vieux months,

Ce que l’astre dit aux nuages,

C’est le mot ineffable : Aimons !

L’amour fait songer, vivre et croire.

Il a pour réchauffer le coeur,

Un rayon de plus que la gloire,

Et ce rayon c’est le bonheur !

Aime ! qu’on les loue ou les blâme,

Toujours les grand coeurs aimeront :

Joins cette jeunesse de l’âme

A la jeunesse de ton front !

Love always! Love more!

When love is gone, hope escapes us.

Love is the cry of the dawn

Love is the hymn of the night

What the streams say to the shore,

What the wind says to the old mountains,

What the stars say to the clouds,

Is one ineffable word: Love!

Love makes one think, live and believe.

Love warms the heart,

A ray of light more than glory

And this ray is happiness!

Love! whether we praise or blame them

Big hearts will always love:

Join this youth of the soul

To the youth of your brow!

The Importance of Making Appointments and Keeping Them – 6 Power Quotes

You may not mind if you spend the whole day at the office entertaining people dropping in when they feel like. These may be customers, suppliers, friends and colleagues. You might not have a choice because your day is not structured. What about at home, when you want to spend quality time with family, loved ones or a loved one? It can be quite disrupting because if you are a busy person like me who relishes even the time to have nothing on my schedule except rest to not have some sort of order in life that determines who sees you and who you see. Appointments are important and they have many benefits. I share some useful nuggets in this article.

1. Some people do not have time for order and they may not even possess a diary to record all their commitments, so they yes to everything and everyone only to disappoint most if not all of those people because of lack of order.

2. It is important to make appointments because it saves time and money in the process. You would have set apart and allocated that time to a specific meeting or activity allowing good management of the resource called time.

3. A person who manages their time through making appointments thereby controlling access ultimately manages their life. You cannot manage life without managing time.

4. Ensuring that you set apart valuable time for someone who is available is crucial to your success. Imagine a sales person calling on people who are not available the whole day because he did not make arrangements to see them.

5. Making and keeping appointments demonstrates the respect and honor you have for other people and shows that you do not take them for granted.

6. You may be confused as to who you should make appointments with. You can make appointments whether it is business or personal or even maybe with yourself sometimes.

You can dramatically improve your productivity if you develop the discipline of making appointments and scheduling and sticking to the times that you have allocated to those specific activities. It creates order and structure in your life. I have discovered that those who are busy and keep a diary always dictate the level of access to them. It is also true that you have to fit into their timetable because they are organized and they prioritize. Make appointments, starting today and I will see you at the top.
