A Great Name

There's absolutely nothing wrong with one's name being great! Sometimes in the name of humility, we keep ourselves from aspiring to achieve great things and thus limit ourselves, fail to reach our highest potential and deprive ourselves and the world of the benefits that would have come as a result of us reaching our peak. Some people think that pride is the reason God came down to confuse the language of the people who were building the Tower of Babel in Genesis 11:1 -9 because they said '...

Your Best

I just watched a video of a young and extremely talented doctor/singer who passed away after an accident. I'm thinking - he was all that yet his life came to an end after it took a turn for even greater heights. What happens to dreams, desires, and ambitions when a life comes to an end? Death often means the end - case closed, nothing more to be done; but in some cases dreams outlive the dreamers in diverse ways such that their lives keep speaking and having an impact even when they are no more - people's memories of the person, people buying into their vision and running with it, the lives they touched,...

Success Strategies 2 – Negotiate

My little one is a professional at saying exactly what he wants and he often insists on getting it. He'll specify the cup you should use and how full it should be when you prepare him a chocolate drink. He'll say the outfit he wants to put on for his birthday and will even negotiate his schedule - Mummy, please can I play one game first, then write one to fifty, then go outside and ride my bicycle before I come back and finish my homework? I grant his requests as often as they are reasonable and have no negative consequence. Right now as I write, he's asking to keep playing with his...

Success Strategies

I watched a leader give an account of his organization's achievements over the past year. He said everything without referring to a document. He had the figures for the key performance indicators logged in his memory and I thought that was impressive. He went further to explain the origin of the ideas that became the vision and goals his entire team ran with until every single one was accomplished and at the end of the event, he happened to share with a small group I was part of a new vision which should be realized sometime next year. Amazing! So I deciphered the pattern - this leader spends time in prayer/meditation, receives divine direction/instruction/ideas,...

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...

Dream Bigger

While organizing the files on my system, I happened upon a document I called 'Dreams - What I'm believing for'. I opened it to see what I had written. The column headings were: What - the item/my desire The Promise - scriptures to encourage me  on the subject Description/details - the finer details of what I wanted Potential Challenges - what I thought could be show stoppers / obstacles Strategy for achievement - including the suggestions for how to address the potential challenges Target date Date accomplished I totally forgot I had prepared this document though I had the key points outlined in my journal so I could pay attention to them. I read through and realized that from the...

Who I am and Why I’m here

Who am I? I'm a singer, songwriter, chemical & environmental engineer, wife to one husband, and mother to three wonderful children whom I learn from day after day. As I go through life, I try to learn from my experiences and those of others. I believe we can create a better tomorrow by applying these lessons so I share them on my blog so others can benefit. You can call this my little contribution to make the world a better place, one lesson at a time. A dose of motivation is needful every now and then. Sometimes the pressures of life hit hard and bring us down to the point where we even begin...
