3 Life Lessons to Learn from Conor McGregor (Motivation for Monday)

Photo Credit: buzz.ie

 

After his defeat in the Saturday night fight, Conor McGregor partied at the Encore Beach Club in Las Vegas according to TMZ. Even though he lost the fight to Floyd Mayweather, he was said to have earned around $100million (€83.9million) according to Irish Independent + more on the way from other deals.  Trust me, with that kind of money, any “loser” would party and foot the bill of 85k at a post-fight party. But wait, yep, McGregor lost the Saturday night fight to Floyd Mayweather but truly, is he really a loser?

Today, on Motivation for Monday, I have a small story to share with you on WHY I think McGregor is not a loser and WHY we must all “be McGregored” by learning these 3 lessons from his life so far……..

 

6 MAJOR MISTAKES BLOGGERS WHO DON’T MAKE MONEY ARE MAKING

This month of August alone, I have gotten 10’s of messages about how to make money from Blogging. While every Bloggers journey is different, I believe every Blogger should get rewarded for the work they put it. Emphasis on the WORK they put in. 

Today, I will share with you some of the reasons WHY a lot of Bloggers don’t make money and may never make money if these mistakes are not corrected.

 

FINE WINE ::: ACCORDION PLEATED SKIRT & RIB-KNIT

 

I love shopping the sale BUT I love to use my head (think about it) while doing so. When I shop the sale, I shop the same way I shop when the items are not on sale. I consider durability of the item; how will it fit or match what I already have in my closet and in how many ways can I style the pieces? I encourage you to do the same so you are not wasting your hard earned money.

In my recent sale buy, I bought this accordion pleated skirt and rib-knit and in today’s look, I slay like I am on the run way.

 

EARLY RISERS (Motivation for Monday)

I do not buy newspapers BUT I am subscribed to the newspaper of the county where I live so I can read local news and learn what is going on in my community and country.  Since the results of the leaving certs is now out, I was on the look out for that news…I checked out all articles written on the leaving cert specifically to check this year’s performance. As I looked, I saw a girl from one of the county’s who did really well, the girl power in me would not let me notice the boys first. Sorry boys. As I looked further, I saw another headline that says, “the boy with the highest possible score in this year’s leaving cert”. What the boy said in the papers made sense and because I was inspired by it,  I bring you, early risers.

 

5 WAYS TO STYLE THE BOX BRAIDS

As someone who is transitioning from relaxed (chemical treated hair) to natural hair (kinky hair), protective styling like box braids is what I wear mostly. Box braids are made from kanekalon hair extensions and they can be made long, short and in between; they can also be braided thin, thick and in between….

 

INSIDE THE COOKIE JAR (Motivation for Monday)

If you are a constant to the motivation for Monday on Moj In Touch, you may have read the one I called, “Don’t Blame the Coach“. If you missed it, please check it out, you would learn the importance of taking responsibility for your life and more……..Today, I am taking you on a slightly different journey that I like to call “Inside the cookie jar”! When I got to the University, university of Ibadan to be precise. University if Ibadan (UI) is Nigerian’s premier university and I am privilege to have attended such a tertiary institution. So, when I was in the university, I ate so much cookies. The ones I loved a lot were Maryland cookies. I loved them so much, I made up my mind that when I grew up and started working and have my own money and home (goals), I would have a massive cookie jar where I would store my Maryland cookies and eat which ever amount I wanted when I wanted them. Unfortunately, before I finished uni, I stopped liking Maryland cookies, I stopped eating them all together…..Like, I said earlier on, today, I would like to encourage you in what I call, “Inside the Cookie Jar”

 

NATURAL HAIR HACKS (Get Soft, Shiny & Silky Hair)

Hair they say is the crowing glory of the woman. Yep, I totally agree because we all love to make our hair and look fabulous. However, when it comes to natural hair, the information out there is so much and can be overwhelming if I may add. In my previous Hair blog I called “What You Need to Know Before You Go Natural“, I said, your natural hair is like a baby, how I raise mine may not necessarily be how you raise yours; the most important thing is to embrace your hair journey and do what works for you”.

So today, I have some natural hair hacks for you. It is like an update of my own hair journey, products I have been using to get soft and manageable hair, combs I now use and the new hair dryer for natural hair my hairdresser bought for me…

If you call me the queen of looking elegant, you wouldn’t be too far from spilling out my “character in style” and that was WHY I shared the blog on HOW to look elegant so we all can “SLAY” like queens.

Whether you are going to the red carpet or you are a wedding guest, maxi dresses make you look so fine. Let’s check out some maxi dresses I made look a million dollars……

 

THIS TIME LAST YEAR (Motivation for Monday)

I am writing as I travel on the train this morning and I couldn’t help but to reflect on exactly what I was doing this time last year. This time last year, I was on a flight to England and to keep me busy, I was writing the second draft of my first book, Use What You Have. Use What You Have is a book I wrote on HOW to discover your gifts (purpose), how to own them, embrace them and HOW to fulfill your purpose in life by using your GIFTS.

Although I go to England often, on that particular occasion, I went to England to be with one of my best friends who was having her first baby. In the next few days, I will be back to be with the same friend to join her in the celebration of the birthday of this child that was born this time last year……

 

 

SHIRT DRESS PAIRINGS (3 WAYS TO STYLE A SHIRT DRESS ) ::: Maximise Your Closet #1

MY EXERCISE & FITNESS ROUTINE (“How I Stay Thin”) + WHY EVERYONE MUST EXERCISE

I have always known that to take care of others effectively, I have to take care of myself first, this is my own personal philosophy. But sincerely, nobody can give what they don’t have anyways. In caring for me, I focus on taking care of my body, soul and spirit. And for that reason, one of the ways I take care of myself is that I take care of my physical by exercising to stay strong, fit and energetic and NOT necessarily to stay thin……this is a bonus we get when we exercise.

 

As requested by you, here is my exercise and fitness routine video. Like I said in this week’s motivation, “Eat That Frog” and also in this video, no matter how thin you are, we all need some form of exercise…….

SELF BELIEVE! THE REASON WHY I MIX MOTIVATION WITH FASHION (Motivation for Monday)

Not once, not twice and not even three times have I written blogs on the reason-WHY you must BELIEVE IN YOURSELF, IN YOU, IN THE POWER OF YOUR DREAMS and most importantly, in YOUR GIFTS!

Initially, when I started this journey of “banking” on my gift of encouragement and maximising it, I must confess, I was afraid because I do not carry titles like “Coach” or “Mentor” and I do not even consider myself a “Leader”. However, I stepped back a bit and I approached the throne of grace with boldness to ask God how He wanted me to do it. And I got answers. Answers like do not be afraid and just go ahead to do what I have placed in your heart and so I continued…….

Today, on Motivation for Monday, I want to share with you the power of believing in YOU……..
