5 THINGS YOUR GIFTS CAN DO FOR YOU (Motivation)

We have being born with them. They are inside of us already. They are unique to us. They have being given to us FREE OF CHARGE. What am I talking about? I am talking about GIFTS. We all have them. A lot of us don’t even know we have gifts but we do. In this blog HERE, I gave a thorough definition and a break down of what a GIFT or talent is. Have a look. Today, I will be sharing with you 5 things your gifts can do for you.

 

SLOW PROGRESS (Motivation For Monday)

I believe very much in having clear vision for your goals. I do, because when we are sure of exactly what we want or what we want to achieve, it is almost impossible or usually hard for anything; people, circumstance or situation to easily make us quit on that goal. A lot of times when we are about to quit or give up because of one set back or the other, the end picture of that goal we have on our minds or heads always reminds us and drives us back to that goal. However when we don’t have a clear vision, once the wind blows left; a.k.a, a challenging situation, we quit……

 

SPREAD YOUR WINGS & TAKE OFF (Motivation For Monday)

I love reading stories of successful people. I love to read about what they did differently and WHY and HOW they become successful in their field. If I can say so, I miss Obama in office and because I missed him so much, I have being reading about him. I read about how his mother would wake him up at about 5am to do his homework; I read about his move to Chicago and how he shunned earning high in large corporations to serve the public………..

 

BE THE ONE WHO MAKE THINGS HAPPEN (Motivation For Monday)

For about 4 years, I was a Mary Kay Beauty Consultant. Although I do not do Mary Kay anymore, the EXPERIENCES; business tips, beauty tips, skin care tips and so many other things I learnt from being a Mary Kay Beauty Consultant is part of what gives me the confidence to run my own business, write beauty and skin care like a “pro” and do so many other things for myself and my client’s companies and so much more. Today, I will be sharing the importance of making things happen with you.

 

WHAT DOES IT REALLY MEAN TO INVEST IN YOURSELF? (MOTIVATION FOR MONDAY)

The word invest can mean to provide or endow someone or something with (a particular quality or attribute). I am sure my friends who are financial gurus would agree with me that investment can also mean to put (money) into financial schemes, shares, property, or a commercial venture with the expectation of achieving a profit.

Today, I am not talking about buying shares and neither am I talking about buying a property, I am talking about endowing yourself with quality attributes or lifestyle that will yield result.

 

2 MAJOR LIFE LESSONS I LEARNT FROM MY HUSBAND’S FRIEND (MOTIVATION FOR MONDAY)

I heard some factories are recruiting she said to him. He said, “NO, I do not want to work in the factory because I know I will get the job I want and that is why I am doing what I am doing now”.

She then said, you can start and when you get the one you desire, you can leave it. He said, No, that is not what I want.

Today on motivation for Monday, I will be sharing with you the great life lessons I learnt from my husband’s friend.

 

 

TRUST YOUR JOURNEY (MOTIVATION FOR MONDAY)

I stood right there by my seat jumping up and down. I was smiling as if my mind was being said. I couldn’t help it no more but to say Oh My God!. It was as if my mind was split opened by a surgeon and EVERYTHING I had in there was being played on a wide screen. It then made sense when my own child said, “mum, everything we learnt in church today, you said already in one of your videos and a lot of it in your book, did you know that?” I turned around to him, smiled again and said, I know baby. Today, I will be talking to you about WHY you should trust your journey.

 

DON’T JUST BE A GOOD WORKER (Motivation for Monday)

How will it feel if you get to a certain place in your life and everything you want is easily accessible to you. For example, employers are looking for you because of your skills, business opportunities are looking for you because of your experience, speaking engagements are looking for you because you have mastered the art of speaking and delivering life changing speeches, brands are looking to work with you because they know your are one of the best bloggers…………….

 

WHY ON EARTH AM I HERE? | WHAT IS MY PURPOSE? | MOTIVATION

Happy new month everyone. Welcome to April and to the second quarter of the year-2017. Wow, the year is running so fast, it is unreal. It was just like yesterday that we said happy new year and we are in the second quarter already. Amazing!

First, I am grateful for everything. For being here. For standing. For all of you and for all the love and blessing the Father is giving to us. I do not take anything for granted.

 

YOU ARE PLANNING TO FAIL IF………… (Motivation for Monday)

I know you must have heard that saying, “when we fail to plan, we plan to fail”. Have you heard that before? It is a popular one isn’t it? Although the saying is a popular one, a lot of us still fail because we are unintentional or deliberate about succeeding. Today, I will talk to you about why it is very important to plan so we do not fail.

“To send the message home”, I will share my “mini” fail with you in this post. So I went for NCT (MOT, depending on where you live) last Friday and unfortunately, I failed. While this is just a test for a car which can be re-done, I could have prevented it.

 

FOCUS (MOTIVATION FOR MONDAY)

It is obvious that we live in a world of information overload where everyone and everything needs our attention. Can you help me do this or can you help me do that? Does that sound familiar? However, Research shows that an “average person” spends about 4.7 hours a day on their phone, calling, texting and doing other things. The same research shows that so many people spend at about 3.2hrs per day on social media. In this busy world of information overload and everything and everyone trying to get your attention, today, I will share with you how to STAY FOCUS!

 

“I CAN NEVER BE A NURSE” (MOTIVATION FOR MONDAY)

OFF_THE_SHOULDER_DRESS

A friend of mine told me that she wants to go back to school to do Nursing a couple of months ago. I was just at home when I remembered her and thought to call her to ‘hold her responsible”  /  follow up on what she said. I totally forgot to ring her on that day. Thank God I got the chance to hook up with her the next day (Sunday) and so I asked her; “so what about the course”? She said, oh yes, I have now started a module and will continue full time in the fall / Autumn.  I “jumped for joy” and said wow!  I am truly happy for her because she is now at peace with what she should be doing with her life.

 

JUST ONE STEP ::: MOTIVATION FOR MONDAY

My mother is my biggest inspiration. I like to say that it is from her strength that I draw daily and here’s WHY: she is strong, wise, confident and she never gives up. Last week, she lost her brother (my Uncle) and as challenging as this time is for her, she sounds so brave /  strong on the phone anytime I speak with her. Out of the many wise words she would say to me, one I always hold on to and never give up on is this: A journey of a thousand miles start with JUST one step”!

Today, I will tell you the reason WHY you have to take that first step first before you can ever soar…….

 

THE WHITE BLAZER + MOTIVATION FOR MONDAY

 

For this blog, I had two choices, use the images/photos I have or don’t share any blog at all. I choose the former because when things don’t go the way we plan, we have to look for a way out or other alternatives. Why?

One of the characteristics of a leader or one who desires to be a leader is to look for a way out even when it has to do with a look book / outfit of the day. Today on Motivation for Monday, I will share some leadership principles to learn from an Eagle with you. Please read………..

HOW TO CHOOSE THE BEST COATS FOR YOUR HEIGHT & MOTIVATION FOR MONDAY

  My second read this year is a book called Mindset by Carol Dweck. I have learnt what kind of mindset works for growth and which one doesn’t. Coincidentally, one of my Mentees (I currently have 6 of them from different parts of the world) wrote an amazing article about the power of the mind…

MINIMALISM & VALIDATION

 

One of the most REWARDING thing I have enjoyed as a Blogger is that I have built an audience that truly believes in me. I am indeed grateful for this.

At the weekend, I responded to so many emails from all my social networks; Instagram, Facebook and Gmail. I take one hour daily before I go to bed to read and respond to emails. The two that brought tears to my eyes this past weekend were the ones I received from a lady from Nigeria and another from the UK via my Facebook page. I have cut out names to keep identity secured…….please read below:

 

COLOURBLOCKING & SHOULDA, WOULDA, COULDA

 
During this past holidays, I rested more than I would normally do and I feel terrific about it. I also read books and selected the books I wanted to read for the entire year – I have bought 2 of the books already and reading them. I also listened to a lot of podcasts, made videos and did more planning for the year. I also did some faffing around with the boys in our pyjamas, watched movies, ate at “sinful hours” and we had lots of fun in general.

So What did you do? What did you plan for the year? I am curious to know so please share them with me below…
