On Saturday, I spoke at an Enterprise & Careers day in Dublin. There were other speakers from different works of life; 2 Doctors, an amazing lady from Google, a Psychiatrist, a Forensic Accountant and an Amazing Irish Youth Pastor who also happens to be an Author. It was an awesome event and I thoroughly enjoyed been a part of it.
Speaking at this event made me realise one thing and that thing, I will share with you today on Motivation for Monday………
OUTFIT OF THE DAY & STYLING TIPS!
Recently, I shared FEW WAYS TO STYLE VELVET with you. Today’s look is another look featuring another way to wear velvet. Velvet is still very big at the moment in the fashion scene. If you are one who does not like trends, a simple addition of a trendy belt to your look is just a way of being trendy without investing so much in trends.
For my look today, I wore this gorgeous dress. To accentuate the waistline, I wore a velvet belt and to finish off the look, I wore an open toe caged sandals to add some warmth to the look as it is all blue. Gold or Silver adds warmth to any look and they are neutral or default accessories to wear if you are not sure of what accessories to wear with your look.
This dress is simple but has details that I love very much. Amazingly, the back of the dress is opened but I wore a vest to cover the back because it was cold when we shot this look.
The look is simple yet dressy, it reminds me of Salsa dancers because of the bell sleeves. So I say, this look is perfect for that holiday dance dates, elegant dinner or cocktail and romantic walk or candle light meal.
Smile they say is the best accessory right. May we always have reasons to smile. May you have reasons to laugh till your belly hurts. Amen
Motivation For Monday ::: What Are You Saying?
Joyce Meyer once said,” if you change what you are saying, what you are seeing will change”.
Okay, this is the break down:
Speak Positive, you will begin to see positive. Speak negative, you will continue to see negative. Will break down even more, please keep reading.
The above is deep and I have meditated on it for a long time and this brings me to the conclusion that I am no longer where I used to be. Before now, I didn’t believe in myself, I didn’t believe what I could do matters and I didn’t believe I matter. I lived in fear and I buried all my potentials away. Right now, I am no more shy. I know exactly what my potentials are and I have taken them back to God to work out my purpose for me……
Enough about me. Today, I say to you that what you are saying matters. What are you saying? You know that saying that whatever you say may be used against you in the courts of law. You know you could be snared by the words of your mouth and you know the things you confess to yourself you will see.
Lately (since last year I forward), I have made conscious decision to say VERY GOOD THINGS to myself: the things I wanted to see. For example, I wanted to build my speaking profile and I started saying to myself little things like : I will be speaking inspiration / motivation at events all over the world. Believe me, anytime I say that, I doubt myself but I do not stop saying it. The next day, I go through my lists of affirmations and little by little, I began to see this things manifest. For example, this year, I was at Google headquarters with YouTube and now this “gig” to speak at this Enterprise / Careers day event. I didn’t start seeing those things until I stated saying those things. Amazing right?
I need you to read this here….. “call those things that be not as though they were”. This is a latter part of the reading in Romans 4 vs 17. This life principle works! If you can say it, you will see it. It is not enough to stop saying negative things to yourself, start saying the things you want to see. For example: my marriage is filled with love and trust; I am thriving in my business; I am blessed and highly favoured and on and on…….
So what are you saying? I am saying different things than I used to say and now, I am seeing different things than I used to see. I need you to begin to say the things you want to see. Say them loud and clear and with conviction and you will begin to see them. Yes, you will. Believe them as you say them. Continue to do your work with diligence and you will begin to see results.
What are you saying? Good (positive) to Yourself or Bad (negative to yourself)? Honestly, be kind to yourself, you will see the result of being kind to yourself.
Now, Let’s practise it. SAY SOMETHING YOU REALLY WANT TO YOURSELF NOW! For example, I am the Author of Best Selling books. What do you want? SAY IT and SAY IT everyday.

I just want to thank you so much for stopping by today. I do hope you like the look and I hope you are inspired by today’s motivation for Monday. Continue to say those positive things to yourself and you will begin to see positive things. Like I said, it is not enough to stop saying negative things, start speaking positive things (the things you want to see) as you work towards them.
Wishing you an amazing week filled with positive vibes. May you continue to see good things in your life. Amen.
