What Do You Want? (Motivation for Monday)

Many times, I come across so many people who ask me the very old age question, “What should I do”? Should I do this or that or go this way or that way? Others ask me if I can help them? When I get this question of “help me”, I still end up having to ask, “What do you want” because sincerely, if I do not know what you need help with, I can’t help you. That is the truth!  And nobody can help you if you do not know what you want. This is the honest truth. It is okay not to be sure or clear but you MUST have an idea of what is it you want.

Today on Motivation for Monday, I will be sharing TIPS on how to know what you want so you can live a meaningful, fulfilling and purposeful life.

 

Your Mind, Your Body, Your Soul (Motivation for Monday)

The mind, the body and soul are 3 interlinked parts. One does not function without the other. When all 3 are cared for, we live a more fulfilling life and are more happier. See, out of your mind is where everything starts – whether good or bad. And your body is the carrier of all things that comes from your mind and then your soul is the receiver of what your mind and body say.

Today, on motivation for Monday, I am writing to encourage you on the importance of caring for the mind, the body and the soul. Let’s check it out……….

 

You Can Do This (Motivation for Monday)

In the past couple of weeks, I received many messages than I would normally get. When I read through all these messages and met up with some of the amazing people who wrote to me, I can conclude that a lot of people want more for their lives, want to grow, want to contribute to the society and economy at large, people want to use their gifts to help others and in turn fulfill their own purpose. Today’s blog will encourage someone who is on the cross roads of whether or not to go ahead and start working on the huge burden and desires of their hearts.

 

How to Know If You Are Fulfilling Purpose (Motivation for Monday)

Nearly every week, I change the DP on my WhatsApp with snap shot of feedback(s) I get from different people who have come in contact with my work. A lot of times, it is some sort of testimonial or feedback saying, “how much what I do has helped them” or “how my book has helped them” or “how a course I created has helped them” or “how a post I wrote on Facebook or somewhere else has helped them” etc.  I personally do this to remind myself of how far I have come on my journey and how much impact I make daily with what I do but most importantly as a reminder to be thankful to God for giving me the gifts I use to make such an impact.

 

Today, on Motivation for Monday, I want to encourage you on “How to Know If You Fulfilling Your Purpose”……….

 

The Power of Vision Boards (Motivation for Monday)

I had 2 major breakthroughs last week. Amazingly, one news came on Wednesday and the other came on Thursday. It was a back to back victory I must say. Until about 5 years ago there about, I didn’t really understand how scriptural, effective and powerful vision boards are. However since I have learnt more about vision boards, I now use them all the time. Now, once I achieve everything on one vision board, I make another. Today on motivation Monday, I am writing to encourage you on the power of vision boards and how to make them work for you………

 

Fixed Goal with Flexible Path (Motivation for Monday)

A couple of months ago, I shared a blog titled FOCUS where I encouraged you to Follow One Course Until Successful. I am not changing my mind today about the tips I shared in that post but I am here to tell you today that while it is important to follow one course until successful (FOCUS), it is also important to recognise that we must have a VERY OPEN mind for us to be able to succeed in all areas of our life. Let’s check out today’s motivation for Monday

 

In Your Pain, There is Purpose (Motivation for Monday)

Maxi_skirt

Every Monday on this blog, I write to encourage and inspire you to be who you were called to be and I do that by sharing my own story repeatedly and truthfully highlighting why I started the things I do now, what I have achieved, where I am now and where I truly want to go. Today is not different because I will be sharing to encourage you. As I finished servicing my Facebook page last Saturday, Facebook fed me with this powerful post I felt truly connected with and I thought to share it with you. So, today’s motivation is half mine and half someone else’s. I will be sure to credit the original writer – Temi Koleowo…..

 

YOUR JOURNEY MAY SEEM EASY NOW (Motivation for Monday)

Remember I wrote a blog called Trust Your Journey a while ago. In that blog, I shared the importance of embracing your own life’s journey in totality, authentically and that come what may, to never give up.

Can I be totally honest with you? See, every motivation blog I have ever written was influenced by a life’s experience. I like to write from real life experiences because we learn from experience and then people can relate to those things better because they are real.  Today, I am writing the blog as always from real life experience and this one is called, “Your Journey May Seem Easy Now”

 

YOU ARE A BRAND TOO (Motivation for Monday)

As a Writer and Fashion Aficionado who also happens to inspire, encourage and motivate other people to become who they truly want to be irrespective of their circumstance, sex and age, I also spend a lot of time researching and  watching great contents that can help me be better at what I do. So, last week, I saw this video where Editor-in-chief Edward Enninful of British Vogue sat down to interview Oprah Winfrey. In that interview, I learnt a few pointers and I will be sharing some of that with you today on Motivation for Monday.

 

SILENT EVERYTHING & LISTEN TO YOU (Motivation for Monday)

It is not so obvious but the same letters that spell the word silent actually spells the word listen. Let me list both words below and what they mean:

SILENT: not speaking. Silence can also mean the lack of audible sound, or the presence of sounds of very low intensity. The word silence can also refer analogously to any absence of communication or hearing, including in media other than speech and music

LISTEN: to make an effort to hear something; be alert and ready to hear something

 

Today on motivation for Monday, I want to encourage you on what I call, “silent everything and listen to you”

 

 

Audacity to Go After Your Dreams (Motivation for Monday)

How will it make you feel if you take a bold step and go after the life you want? How would it make you feel if after thinking about something, you just don’t stop there but go ahead and make that thing happen for yourself? How excited would it be for you if right before your very eyes, what you have always dreamed about comes to pass? For example, pass that exam, launch that business, move to another city, ask that girl or boy out or whatever it is it you want? How would that make you feel?

Today on Motivation for Monday, I am writing to encourage you on what I call, “Audacity to Go After Your Dreams”

 

 

The More You Do Anything (Motivation for Monday)

If you have ever wondered what the name of this blog – Moj In Touch means, here you go…..It simply means MOJ from my name and IN TOUCH from the situation I found myself. 

So, IN TOUCH in my world simply means to be IN TOUCH with who you really are irrespective of your circumstance or status (single, married, mum, dad, unemployed, redundant or broke etc). Being in touch also means, even if your circumstance or status changes, your life goals, vision, aspirations and desires don’t have to change.

Today on motivation for Monday, I am writing to encourage on what I call, “The More You Do Anything”….

 

Be True to You (Motivation for Monday)

If is possible for someone to look at me and tell me the things I want to hear even when I know they are not telling the truth. It is possible for me to allow anyone to lie to me because I just want a feel good factor or a pick me up. It is also possible for me to know the truth and keep waving it away because I can’t be true to myself, just for not being true to myself. I like to put it this way, anyone can lie to you BUT If you lie to yourself, you are your own greatest enemy…..

Today on motivation for Monday, I want to encourage you on what I call, “Be True to You”

 

FROM THE EYES OF A CHILD (Motivation for Monday)

I try very much to use practical approaches when I create this motivation blogs. I try to share my own story as much as I can, not to brag but to inspire you to be YOU and do you. I also share from other people’s experience if I won’t violate their privacy in any way…..

Today’s motivation is no different because I am going to be using a real life instance and I call this one from the eyes of a child.

 

YOUR SISTER’S KEEPER (Motivation for Monday)

Every Monday for the past 4 years, I have come up with contents that would motivate, inspire, empower and encourage you to be who you want to be irrespective of the circumstances you may be faced with or surrounded by or issues of life that may be giving you that limiting mindset to still go out there and do what you have to do to be who you truly want to be. I come out here and say, “YOU CAN DO IT”. I turned myself to your “Cheerleader of dreams” while working on being who I was called to be too.

However, in the past couple of weeks, I have been very worried because we have had instances of suicide yet again. Not that suicide is good for anyone but one that was truly shocking to us all was that of the owner of the fashion brand, Kate Spade. Ms Spade was said to have committed suicide at age 55. The question is, what could have caused this?

 

HANG ON, YOUR REWARD IS COMING (Motivation for Monday)

I know we all have those days when all we want to do is NOTHING, even though we have so much to do. Sometimes, this feeling goes on for a day or two. After a day or two, we still don’t feel like doing anything. Meanwhile, there is lots to do. I totally get it. I understand. This kind of feelings happen a lot of times when we have put in all we think we can BUT can’t seem to see any results, green light or breakthroughs……

 

What Price Will You Pay For PURPOSE? ( Motivation for Monday)

I attended the Excel Women conference in London about 8days ago and sitting down in that conference, I couldn’t help but think about the price I paid to attend that conference. Not necessarily the monetary aspect of things but going out of my way to actually attend the conference. We had a family holiday planned so I went to England first for the conference and then back to Ireland and then back again on the road again with the family. It was a lot to deal with but hey, I did it. #Notcomplainingjustsaying.

As I sat down there at the conference amongst about 150+ women, I couldn’t but notice how expectant, “charged” and enthusiastic the women in there were, waiting to learn, connect and “fellowship” with one another. Today, on Motivation for Monday, I want to encourage you on what I call, what price will you pay for purpose?

 

 

Don’t Be Left Behind (This is NOT Rapture) | Motivation for Monday

I have been meeting weekly with 5 students (4 boys & a girl) doing leaving cert to encourage and support them on “working REALLY hard” at preparing for their forth coming leaving cert.  When I chat with these children, I use real live approaches to drive important messages home for them. When we met last Sunday, I told them that they should do everything possible so as for them not to be left behind. Today on motivation for Monday, I want to encourage you on what I call, “Don’t be left behind – This is Not Rapture”. It is an interesting one with real life takes on matters and changes happening…..

 

DARE TO DREAM BIG & BELIEVE (Motivation for Monday)

Any writer can relate to this: I started writing this text for an Instagram post on Sunday morning and the few lines I wrote reads thus: 

“We finished the “Use What You Have – Gifted for a Purpose Masterclass” at about 9.50pm on Saturday night and I am grateful for everyone who joined us. This opened my eyes to what it means to BELIEVE. Maybe I will create a blog to talk more on this…
We can grow on our journeys  and discover the hidden potential that we have but if we don’t BELIEVE, it is possible to settle for the less than who we have been called to be.
I went into creating and running the course with the mindset that come what may, that even if it is one person that shows up, I will run the classes.
Night after night, many joined us live. Their testimonials made me realise that all I needed to do was my bit which is to create the course and God will do his bit which is to connect me with the right people via social media.

Will you dare to BELIEVE and do what God has put in your heart? There are people out there who needs what you know. Will you dare to believe and put those things out?”

I have now come to realise that some things you can learn, some things you can build on and growth is possible. And also, it is possible to become who we want to be without becoming who we are not……

Today, I will be sharing with you the 3 lessons I learnt from getting my third Mirena. It is NOT for women only.

 

CREATIVITY KILLS FEAR (Motivation for Monday)

Some of you may remember when I changed the look of the blog. If you like, call it re-branding of the blog. You saw how excited I was when I did because I had outgrown what “we” had before. Little did I know that re-designing the blog was one thing and maintenance of it was another. As a creative (very creative actually), I love changes, I love to try out new things and if you like I love things to look a certain way, it is this creative mind of mine that makes me want to explore new things….

Today on the blog, I want to share how your creativity can kill your fear. Now let’s do this:

 

MY VISIT TO THE MINISTRY OF FOREIGN AFFAIRS, ABUJA + Some Motivation for You

 

Before I tell you anything about today’s topic, I would like to encourage you that for you to create the life you want, you can not afford to be scared or afraid. Anyone who wants to create the life they want must be bold and go for what they want irrespective of what anyone says or thinks or the not so favourable circumstance you may have around you. To create the life you want, you must be bold, confident, prayerful BUT courteous and carry yourself with grace and poise putting your best foot forward.

I didn’t share on any of my social media that I was going to “Africa” – Nigeria. However, I shared with the ladies in our private Facebook group that I was going and invited them to come and meet with me if they had the time. A few turned up and I shared that image on my personal Facebook page and to my greatest surprise, many people wanted to “meet with me”, “host me” and “take me to launch”…..
