Is Success birthed out of Fear?

Image
It feels good to be back. I have been on a learning spree through life's realities and back stronger, improved, focused and better. Today I just want to share a piece sent to me by a lovely and an amazing lady, it indeed makes for an awakening read. I hope this motivates someone out there not to be bugged or bothered about yesterday mishaps because all it takes to turn it all around is believe, work, prayer and a continuous repetition of the earlier mention steps.

See piece below;

Dreams buried within deep under layers of fear, the doubts and possibly setbacks. Shouldn't Success be birthed in the midst of Fear?



Looking through the eyes of the past at the present and recognising what should have been, remembering the projections of what the future might have been. Is fear responsible? Do I live what I see? Am I living the dream?

Just this one time I need to deal with my past in my present with the hope that I have dealt with the future.

Dreams thought dead, Alive. Somehow I se…

Dr Chilaka works in one of Houston's biggest cardiology centers. His wife heads over 200 people in an IT firm in Texas too. Living above average they have one dream for which they save religiously. The dream to someday go back home to Umuahia in Abia state, Nigeria and set up their own businesses. 
Meanwhile......Martins and his wife who both run successful businesses in Umuahia have not missed their "prayer point" in the last 4yrs. "Lord this dream must come true, we must relocate to USA.

Admiring independent business men, hating his cage(sorry his job I mean) and wishing to be an unemployable entrepreneur someday. Meanwhile...Mike walks pass that same Zenith bank building everyday, his CV in hand and sweat on his forehead. Asking God "when?". When would I say &quo…

What's your Opinion of yourself

Image
God has seen your worst yet he hasn't condemned you. He still believes in you.

Never let anybody's opinion of you deter you from your goal. You don't need more than your vote to be who God wants you to be.

Don't let other people's thoughts distort your reality, be bold in pursuing your dreams.

Its an established fact that your life shouldn't be affected by anybody's opinion of you , but there after comes the tricky question. 
What do you of think of yourself ? Most times we're unaware of our hidden treasures and judge ourselves by our mistakes or weaknesses.

But let God be true and every man a lair including you. Romans 3:4. Take God's opinion of you as the truth and run with. Soon enough, all will align.


See yourself through the eyes of Jesus.




Motivational Monday: Drop the Excess Baggage

Today could be the day you become the person that you're meant to be. However, that can’t happen if you're still carrying baggage.

Say to yourself today, I am going to make the rest of my life the best of my life.

The commission’s Director of Information and Public Relations, Mr. Ibrahim Usman Yakasai, made the announcement during a press briefing on Thursday evening in Abuja.

Nigeria will not recognise online degrees. Online degrees are not accepted in Nigeria at the moment; the Nigerian constitution does not even give recognition to such degrees.

The Commission also warned that degrees obtained from Maryam Abacha American University of Niger Republic (MAAUN) are sub-standard and…
