Dare to be you!

Often tımes, our decısıons, actıons, and reactıons are largely drıven by bandwagon motıvatıons. We are afraıd to take a stand for what we truly believe because we want to be accepted by others.

Thıs year, dare to be yourself. Dare to step away from the bandwagon effect and watch your lıfe soar. You wıll attract genuıne relatıonshıps as you dare to be yourself whıle workıng on your areas of weaknesses.

Thınk about thıs-
'Yes' and 'No'- are two key words to activate thıs year. No, to unhealthy rubbısh/negatıvıty.
Yes, to posıtıvıty and lıfe enhancers.

It's operatıon weed out negatıve toxıcıty.

Sweetness comes from sweat

Everyone has a desire to do something but very few have the discipline to set their desires free.
You have to understand that whatever you want, it’s not going to be easy. Sweetness comes from sweat.
The reason why many people don`t achieve is that they are so much attached to who they have always been instead of embracing who they want to become.
You were not born just to make a living, pay your bills and die.
The truth is that you were born for a purpose that`s beyond survival.

... Self assured!

CONFIDENCE...is a feeling of self assurance, the rising of ones, appreciation for ones own abilities. We look at confidence from a place of outside of ourselves.
But really it's a KNOWING of the POWERS God has given YOU.

It's the power of your ability to CREATE. Make sure you know the difference and make sure you adjust your mind and attitude to have the RIGHT kind of confidence in yourself.

It will take you very far!

Why die? #SayNoToDomesticViolence

I was having a chat earlier today about the reported cases of domestic abuse in the last 24 hours, as seen on social media. Of the two incidents, one of the victims didn’t live to tell the story, the other is an ongoing case which has gotten to the police. These days, incidents of domestic violence are quite rife, and I strongly believe that they are grossly under-reported.

That is not what I want to dwell on. We live in a generation where there is a lot of skewed / warped thinking cum reasoning. A generation that have sacrificed values at the altar of materialism. So I want to say, all our ‘’Slay’’ babes or is it queens? (Whatever that means), who prefer to cry in limousines, Lamborghinis, private jets, super mansions etc; I have one advice for you:
Enjoy the monies you get as ‘’compensation’’ from men that don’t treat you well, drive the cars, paint the town red, travel the world, Pepper dem, demean your competition, let them know they are not in your league, Keep up the fake outlook, even when you know you’re dying inside of you, mask it with what you want society to see.

While you’re at it, please be sure to set aside a portion of the ‘’stress-relieve’’ fund you get, for your burial expenses, just in case. Don’t leave that burden to grieving family and friends, since you choose/prefer to stand the ‘’heat in the kitchen’’ because of the monetary/material benefits that accrue to you.

When your sad story breaks out, if it does, I'll only feel bad for a moment, say a long ''eyaaaaaahhhh, then immediately flip the script to find our if the naira has gained on the dollar, when the recession would end, if Nnamdi Kanu has met his bail conditions, Buhari's state of health, new locations where hidden monies have been found, why the Oba of Lagos gave the Ooni of Ife the royal ''ela'', sympathise with Chelsea fans that feel they will win the FA Cup, argue with friends who try to register me in the Bitcoin thing, which celebrities are fighting, scold my mechanic for putting a fake China part in my car, wonder why people watch ZWorld and telemundo, why guys put snapchat ''garden'' on their head, why people go live on facebook and just make faces, saying nothing, ultimately see thank God for his Grace etc.
You see, there is so much to live for, so many distractions in Nigeria and the world, to entertain you. Why choose a path that could end up being fatal?, why walk the dark path?... WHY DIE?

If a guy (Rich or Poor) is subjecting you to deep emotional abuse and you can’t cope, please TAKE THAT WALK and SAVE YOUR LIFE. You do not have to wait till it cascades to physical abuse…Money is good, but trust me, it is not everything.

Be wise!

***Men suffer abuse too, but that is not the focus of this particular post***

Guest Post: When Progress Is Slow - Nonhlanhla Kone

It's important to renew our minds, but it's also important to realize that this process of reprogramming or renewing our minds will take place little by little. Don't be discouraged if progress seems slow. Don't get down when you have setbacks or bad days. Just get back up, dust yourself off and start again.

When a baby is learning to walk, he falls many, many times before he develops the ability to walk without falling; however, the baby is persistent. He may cry for a while after he falls down, but he always gets right back up and tries again.

Learning to change our thinking works the same way. We struggle and fall down, but God is always there to pick us up. Rather than get frustrated, you should, as the Bible says, "triumph" in your hardship, because the very fact that you're struggling means that you're fighting the good fight.

There will be days when we don't do everything right, days when our thinking is negative. But never stop trying. God is gradually bringing us around to His way of thinking. Just don't give up!

Prayer Starter: Lord, thank You for picking me up when I fall down. I know that my struggles mean that You are helping me overcome my negative mindsets and bringing me more and more in line with Your way of thinking.

The ME

"My Heart is like an open book it depends on how you read me.

Don't  judge me by my cover, look in and discover me,then you can think what you want, but still I'm gonna be me moulded and shaped by my Heavenly Father daily.
