Don't stop

There's more to you than what is your present reality. Whatever you do, don't stop learning and don't stop investing in your personal development.  The way of the good person is like the light of dawn, growing brighter and brighter until full daylight. Our future...

Priority Check

It’s so easy to get carried away with the activity and forget the reason for it. A man says to his wife, ‘how can you say I don’t care about you and the kids any more? I spend so much time working hard so I can provide for you. I have given you everything you need – this house, the cars, the vacations…. What more do you want from me?’ It’s also easy to become overly sucked into religious activities. You can very easily slip into that state where you find that you are spending so much time and energy on the work of God but are neglecting your personal relationship with the God...

Post Vacation

I had the most interesting Easter Holiday cum vacation. The kids' school closed on Thursday, the day before Good Friday. Can you imagine that? Well, by God's grace and favor, we were able to make it to Lagos on the the same day.  Now I'm back to reality. I'll say: Build as much fun and fantasy into your reality. All work and no play makes you BORING. Work hard and endeavor to make room for rest and relaxation. Value your family - nuclear and extended. Keep those relationships healthy and strong. You'll find that your parents/siblings can be your best friends, part of your support system and they can also provide you a home away...

Count the Cost

The cost estimate was provided and a decision had to be made… to start or to wait. In the room with me were my close companions - Passion and Common Sense. Passion said ‘Yes, go for it! Even if you don’t have all the money that’s required, just start and believe that God will provide, that the funds will come somehow, even from unexpected sources. After all, Jesus said, ‘Ask and it shall be given unto you…’ Where’s your faith? Come on, jump in’. Common Sense had a different opinion. He said “Wait, count the cost. Remember Jesus also said ‘…don’t begin until you count the cost. For who would begin construction of a...

Pitfalls

I read about someone who did something he shouldn't have done and many people began to attack him on social media. I was concerned about the whole thing and was in deep thought about it for a while. I wanted to understand what went wrong and how it got to that point. I wished I had all the information so I could do a thorough analysis on the matter and identify the root cause, but with the scanty information, I was left with many possible scenarios to analyse. Well, I have outlined some recommendations based on insights from my analysis that could help us avoid such complications in our own lives. Firstly, hold true...

Making Fear Your Servant

Yes! You can make fear your servant. Do you wonder how? I learnt this sometime back and it has really been useful in dealing with fears about the future. You know what happens when fear is at work. You can almost hear voices in your head telling you all that could go wrong; they may not be audible but you get the message loud and clear. Then you begin to picture it, and your mind goes into overdrive… and you panic… or you get depressed… or you feel overwhelmed...

Margaret Adegoke’s Legacy – 10 years on

Daughter, Sister, Wife, Mother, Friend, Mentor… She was many things to many people and our perspectives as we look back today, March 14, 2016, to celebrate her life are several. She often had a smile on her face and she loved to laugh. Hers was a gentle soul indeed. There was no room for contention, grudges or hatred in there. I can still see that peaceful glow about her. She loved to converse with her friends and family. It was always fun to have her around. She loved God without diplomacy. She didn’t care what anyone thought about it. That relationship was her spur, her juice, and the source of her daily high. Often...

Your Life Purpose in 5 minutes

Each time you attend a success or leadership seminar, you'll hear something about purpose. You hear it everywhere - at work, at church, in business circles, everywhere. In fact, before you create anything, you have to be very clear on the purpose of your intended creation. You must know for sure what your product is meant to do, achieve, be used for, and the value it will add once it's ready for use. Without a purpose, the whole process of creating something becomes confusing and complicated with uncertainties lurking around every turn. If we're to learn from the master Creator, God, we'll see he too began with purpose in mind for everything he...
