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 lives. Let’s check out today’s motivation for Monday

 

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.

 

What I Wore on My Tropical Holidays + All Affordable & Stylish Pieces

I recently went to Nigeria and while heading off, I did some shopping for wearable, breathable, comfortable and stylish pieces. When you think of holidays in a tropical place, pieces you can wear, these are the pieces I would be sharing in this post.  Nigeria is very hot, at all times and the pieces I picked up were pieces suitable for that part of the world. So, if you are heading away on your Summer holidays or planning to go away real soon to somewhere hot, this style video would help you get your holiday groove on. Let’s check out my tropical lookbook featuring affordable pieces I got from some of my favourite high street stores.

 

My Live Television Interview on TVC – Wake Up Nigeria Talking How to Use What You Have

I know many of you have read my bestselling book, “Use What You Have – How to take your gifts from potential to fulfilled purpose“. After the successful launch of the book, I knew there was more to the book than just be a book. So, with the help and direction of God, I turned the book into a digital course and then a Live Masterclass which I travelled to Lagos Nigeria to teach.  As part of our publicity for the Lagos live Masterclass, I was on TVC to share more on the book and also the live event. Below is the footage of the live TV I had with Yomi Owope – one of the hosts of Wake Up Nigeria. I had fun doing that interview…..please watch below…..

 

What I Wore to a Nigerian Wedding + How to Avoid a Bad Tailoring Experience In Lagos

Being a Yoruba-Nigerian, weddings are an exceptionally important part of our Culture. Firstly, in the Yoruba culture, when there is a wedding, most of the time, the family hosting the wedding and or their friends choose what is called aso-ebi (some sort of “uniform” for the occasion). Secondly, a Yoruba-Nigerian do not just attend weddings, we attend them in grand style. Thirdly, we have so much fun at Nigerian weddings (in general) with so much to eat, drink and great music to dance to.

I have been in Lagos for my Brother-in law’s daughter’s wedding and this is one of the outfits I wore for the ceremony. Yep, in this post, I will be sharing the details of the look with you and I will also be sharing how to avoid a bad tailoring experience with you….

By the way, I have more wedding outfit posts coming your way but for starters, do check out:

Live Out Your Name (Motivation for Monday)

I first wrote a shorter version of this post on Facebook as I was inspired to write last Friday. By the time it was evening, the post had “gone viral” (gathered more reaction than normal). Since many people related to the post, I thought to share the extended version of the post to inspire and encourage you dear readers as always. So, today, I will be writing to encourage you on the importance of living out your name.

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…..

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”

 

WHAT IS MONOCHROME & 7 WAYS TO WEAR MONOCHROME

I know there is this notion that a monochromatic look is only black and white. In fact, I can promise you that if you key in monochrome into Google, a lot of images that is black and white will be fed to you. While monochrome can be said to be a minimal look featuring black and white, it can also mean a single colour palette, hence the word “mono” which means SINGLE or a look with limited colours and hues.

USE WHAT YOU HAVE (Motivation for Monday)

Every time we make babies, a year later, we celebrate their birth. Although I have 2 biological children, today, I celebrate the birth of my “baby”- “Use What You Have”. It’s been a year since this purpose book was born. I am grateful indeed to God for such a gift. I am not only going to share the birthday of this book with you but to encourage you and also to celebrate ME for how far I have come on this journey called purpose. Please read.

 

YOU CAN DO IT (Motivation for Monday)

At one stage or the other in our lives, we all have come up with one thing or the other we think we can do to change our lives or propel our lives forward. We come up with this great concept, vision or idea and then, we fail to follow through because we feel we can’t do it. We come up with all kinds of excuses in the books just not to do anything about that dream….

Today on Motivation for Monday, I want to encourage you on what I call, “you can do it”

 

IN THE NEXT 10 YEARS (Motivation for Monday)


I know you must have heard that saying that says, what we do today is what determines what we become tomorrow. YES, whatever it is you do today is what determines the outcome of your future. That sounds harsh but that is the reality of life.

Remember I wrote a blog recently called, This Time Last Year. In that blog, I shared the importance of time and that you should never waste it and WHY you must embrace your purpose-journey.

Today, I want to ask you and encourage you about what I called, “In the next 10 years”

 

The LAUNCH OF “USE WHAT YOU HAVE”……..

Sunday evening was “lit”as friends, family, fans, supporters, blog readers, Youtube family and well wishers came to celebrate with me at the unveiling and launch of my book, “Use What You Have“. I was overwhelmed with the love and support on the day. I cried, laughed and eventually jumped for joy, it was amazing.

I woke up at about 4am on the day praying and asking God to take all the glory and He did. It was an amazing event. About 100 people came through to share the moment with me.
