I wonder why I needed a reminder this time. It didn't quite register that we're almost at the end of the first half of the year and it's time for a Mid Year Check. Well, I'm extending the reminder to you. Your Mid Year Check is due! Here are some things to check out: The wonderful things that have happened thus far - consider them and be grateful The mishaps you've experienced - be grateful again because you made it this far in spite of them. You could throw in some thoughts on what you could do differently next time to prevent such occurrences, that is, if these are issues you can control Your goals -...

Drenched – UNKNOWN 3

I made it in early that morning. I had everything planned the day before, down to my outfit, just to make sure there was no reason to be late. I really wanted to have that full hour to myself before jumping into the bustle of the day. Having the luxury of many good spots, I chose one that gave me the advantage of observing all that was going on in the parking lot without being seen by others. Minutes into my quiet time, I was interrupted by some noise on the roof of my vehicle. It had begun to rain and it wasn't the 'hello, if you don't mind, let me water the...

Answer the questions – UNKNOWN 2

I remember how relieved I was when this year rolled in. I felt like the past year was a cage that I got out of just before it closed in on me.  The new year held such hope and promise with new dreams and ambitions brewing in my mind. It’s interesting how time goes by and we find some of those dreams slipping from our grasp into the realms of improbability. Just in case you find yourself worrying about the future and fearful that those goals you set at the beginning of the year will not be achieved… Yes, if it looks like things are just not falling in place to enable you...

Do not worry – UNKNOWN 1

Have you ever been in a situation where you were going to experience a major change? Can you recall the feelings and emotions you had to deal with? You know sometimes you find yourself awake at night, unusually unable to sleep, because although your body needs to rest, your mind goes into overdrive trying to figure things out and make sense of the unknown. You find yourself unconsciously doing what we know to do best - WORRY! Well here are a few things to keep in mind that’ll enable you go to sleep. First of all, you did not bring yourself into existence. Every wise manufacturer has a plan for his product and...

Change

Everyone knows what’s up in Nigeria. I’m thrilled. You can almost touch the hope in the air and each breath feels like a dose of reassurance that our country’s headed in the right direction and a new Nigeria is emerging. I’m glad about this. I believe this Nation is rising again and we’ll be pleased with what we become in months and years to come. But this is also a good time for you to make changes in your personal affairs; changes that will bring about a better you – a more effective, efficient and valuable you. And you can always make that plan today. Like Winston Churchill said, ‘He who fails to...

Giant Slayer – DO IT 4

Everywhere we look today, we still see giants. This time, they’re not necessarily 9-11 feet tall but some of them still are intimidating and seemingly insurmountable. They show up in different sectors of the economy, in our businesses, in raising our children, in keeping the family together in unity, in improving the quality of education in our schools, in communicating the right values to our protégés and leaving a legacy for future generations, and in national transformation. I know for sure that just as there was a David for Goliath, there are people everywhere with just the right skills, passion, experience and grace to take on the giants we see today. Yes! Someone...

Be Prepared – DO IT 3

I marvel at the time David spent preparing to face Goliath. One would have thought that he would launch his attack immediately he came to the conclusion that Goliath had to be taken out, but that wasn’t the case at all. Rather, he took time to find out what the reward would be for the man who killed Goliath, then to get the King’s approval and blessing to represent Israel, then to choose his weapon, and finally to engage in the verbal contest that took place before the real show down. Quite interesting. Some people would rather be sure of an upcoming opportunity before they make any investment in preparing for it. I...

Take Action – DO IT 2

While I was an undergraduate, the Chaplain often told a story about two birds flying in the sky. The one in front was female and the one in pursuit was male. The male would chirp ‘I love you, I love you’ and the female would respond ‘show it, show it’. I’ve also read about how the female eagle chooses her mate… quite interesting. It seems in a bird’s world, words are not enough. Given that our words have the power to influence our lives, we must make the most of that power, but we must not stop there. We have to match our words with appropriate action in every aspect of our lives....
