I looked at my own life and questioned how I fared.
I am a bit off in some of my goals: I have not hit my financial target, I am not married yet, I did not bond as much as I wanted with my dad neither did I have good family time. Yes, I did miss some marks.
In all these, I saw many blessings this year. I grew my mind, my visibility and influence.
I risked showing the world some of my shortcomings, I risked been judged by many eyes, I risked people questioning my points and questioning my authority. I risked combining so many things I do and losing sleep and fun time. I risked leading by example with the thought of not making a mistake that will affect those following me closely.
We sometimes seek validation and support from those we love or hold in high esteem, to pull through what we need to do. And when someone who said “you can count on me, I will support you” doesn’t come through with their promises; we are broken, we feel disappointed and tend to pack our bags and abandon projects. How do we move past it?
I looked into the horizon, beautiful houses and cars; they painted the future I seek. There I was standing on the sixth floor, in deep romance with my thoughts, caressing all the curves of my dreams and leaving me in pure ecstasy. I am will to do all it takes to birth my dreams. It is time to risk everything!
There are times we look so much at tomorrow and forget to live today when in reality we are not really promised tomorrow.
..when next you see a successful person, know that you are looking at one who got rejected repeatedly and stuck to his guts until he succeeded.
Like you, I have had some major plans or milestones in life, only to see them pass unaccomplished. It took me to journey in paths I did not envisage and yet I found myself when I was ready. Do you have goals that that you have not reached, it is time to make that renewed commitment.
How you see, think and use words will have a telling impact on your life and in what you do. Words you say to yourself and to others shapes your life for bad or good.
…Most of us get too rigid with life and resist change. If a plan is not working, know when to stop and re-direct yourself. Change the path but not the decision to arrive at your destination..
If you do the things today others won’t do, you will have tomorrow the things others won’t have..
A thousand bird in the field are waiting if only we are courageous enough to let the bird at hand go.
