Motivation

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...

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...

AoB

Have you heard about the ‘area of brilliance’? Well, this stood out to me as I advanced through the pages of The Power of Focus. Simply put, this is that area where you excel with minimal effort, study or preparation. It’s an area of ease for you notwithstanding the difficulty others experience. Now here’s the mind blower - These activities actually give you energy! Yes. Energy. Can you imagine that? An activity that energizes you instead of draining you? A task that you would do and go home happy even if you weren’t paid for your service? An endeavour you would gladly give up your favourite TV program or some hours of sleep...

Making the Most

Moving to Eket was quite an event in my family’s life. If this had happened three years ago, I think I would have been devastated but certain happenings brought me to a place where I felt like I could pull up my anchors, sail to a new location, set them down again and totally have a blast. The other day, someone asked what I would say to people in Lagos who were considering a move to Eket.  At that, I went on about the variety of fish we have here, cheaper accommodation, lower school fees, cleaner and fresher air, reduced cost for sports facilities, fresher fruits and vegetables, and so on. Seriously, you...

Habits 2

My kids love to go swimming. It took a while but we eventually worked this activity into our weekly family routine and now the process is seamless. It’s been said that the average time required to change a habit is about twenty one days. It’s interesting to see how easy it is to determine the positive habits you need to develop. The hard part usually is finding out what your negative habits are and this is because we are often in denial or we just don’t realize that something we do so easily and frequently is breaking us instead of making us. So it’s necessary to ask your friends, colleagues, bosses, mentors, and...

Find Your Reason

Shout! It’s a new month. You made it and so you have every reason to rejoice and be glad. You may think it’s not a big deal but it is. You may even think there’s no reason to rejoice because you may have been through some tough times in the recent past but you have something right there to rejoice about – Your troubles didn’t drown you. Somehow, you made it through, you rode the waves rather than get swept under it. That tells me something. You’re tough! Or haven’t you heard? Tough times never last, but tough people do. Now just in case you feel like your storm is not over, or...

6th Sense

On the average day, I am a pros and cons superstar. I delight in checking out, weighing, and evaluating options so that I can eventually make an informed decision. This works on most occasions, however, there are times when there’s more to it than you can naturally sense. Then you need a sixth sense to help you judge accurately. I’ve also come to realize that one of the greatest adversaries of this pros and cons process is fear; fear in the heart of the person who needs to do the evaluation. Fear just shuts down the whole process and before you know it, you’re facing the consequences of a bad decision you made...

VICTORIOUS

Without warning, everything changed for Daniel, his cousins and friends. They were young; they had their whole future ahead of them and they often dreamed of occupying positions of influence and making a mark when their time came. This was a natural expectation for him and the other descendants of King Hezekiah. But without warning, everything changed and they went from being royalty in their homeland to being slaves in Babylon; all because of a wrong move King Hezekiah made years before. Daniel could have spent his days in Babylon having pity parties, letting everyone know he used to be royalty, and finishing each session with a recap of how King Hezekiah brought...

War of Words

Have you ever wondered why a lot of wrestlers make a speech against their opponent before the match begins? What we want to see is the fight, right? Or could it be this verbal engagement is also part of it? Well, it might interest you to know that this is an age old tradition. There’s even an account of David’s encounter with Goliath thousands of years ago and this rule of engagement still exists today. Unfortunately, as we go through life, most people choose to be quiet. Even when things are going wrong all around them, they say nothing. Could it be that most of us don’t even realize that life is an...
