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”…..

 

THE THINGS I HAVE NOW (Motivation for Monday)

I believe I can’t be the only one who aspires to be more. In case you don’t understand, here’s what I mean: so many times, I pray for some things, hope for some, wish for some BUT I also know that for me to have them, no matter how much I pray, I have to WORK for the things I want before I have them.

Jim Rohn, a faith based motivational speaker always said: “For you to have more, you have to become more”. If I may, this simply means, what price are you willing to pay for what you want? Today on motivation for Monday, I want to encourage you on what I call, “the things I have now”…….

 

HOW TO DEAL WITH THE ENEMY WITHIN (Motivation for Monday)

This is it: we live in a world where the strong take advantage of the weak. The rich taking advantage of the poor. The smart taking advantage of the slow or gentle. A world where a lot of haters bully us to be quiet and conform to their game. Having said all those, this world is beautiful with a lot of great minds, people, talents, friends, lovers and more.  Today, I want to encourage you on HOW to deal with the enemy within and also how to beat haters at their game.

 

THIS IS WHY YOU MUSTN’T LOOSE FOCUS (Motivation for Monday)

A wise one once coined an acronym for the word FOCUS as “Follow One Course Until Successful”. As simple as that acronym seem or sound, a lot of us tend to dabble into too many things at the same time. While there is nothing wrong with that, a lot of times when we do that, we tend to not give in our best while doing everything together and so we are average or do a mediocre job in all of the things we combine together. To be able to get ahead and achieve a lot, it is best to FOCUS. Today on Motivation for Monday, I am writing to encourage you to FOCUS and how to do so….

 

CHALLENGES MEAN GROWTH (Motivation for Monday)

In a recent research done by Forbes, a lot of people came out to say, the word “problem” scares them. I believe that was so because the word itself is described with synonyms like complications, trouble, difficult situations etc. That sounds scary right? However, in the same research, many say the word Challenge seem like one that could embrace because you can describe the word challenge with synonyms like summon, dare, etc.

Today, my first encouragement to you would be to see every difficult situation you may be going through as a challenge and not a problem. Personally, I see a challenge as an opportunity to dare to do something new and an opportunity to grow.

And guess what, many big organisations has now adopted the word challenge instead of problems.  Today on Motivation for Monday, I bring you, Challenge Means Growth….

 

WHO IS A COACH & DO YOU NEED ONE? (Motivation for Monday)

Having “failed” before because I didn’t know what to do on my own and I didn’t seek help from those who know, I encourage everyone never to suffer in silence. If you don’t know what to do after trying all you can, ASK for help. This is the way forward. It is okay not to know what to do but not asking for help shouldn’t be an option be it in business, relationship, career, education, training or with life issues in general.

Following different requests I have received about the subject “Coach”, today, I bring you a motivation blog called, Who is a Coach and Who needs a Coach? + How to Choose the Best Coach for You.

 

CLARITY BROUGHT ME HERE :: FROM UNEMPLOYED TO GETTING A MASTERS (Motivation for Monday)

As I prepared for my exams over the holidays, I took on my first two premium “mentees”. They were launching blogs and businesses and needed my help on how to get online – create questionnaires, coin business “terms” together and market products online, send business emails, attract the right clients and on and on….

Sincerely, I didn’t want to take anyone on at the time because I wondered, how on earth would I be able to combine wearing a “mentor’s” hat with exams? BUT? I was confident that I could make it work and so I cracked on….
