7-powerful-tips-to-help-your-startup-business

Do you want to start your own business?

Yes I know….it’s the entrepreneurial bug.

You want to become your own boss.

Starting up a business is a huge deal. It’s not an easy task because a business is not a hobby. It is an income stream. There are laid down rules, principles and tips before the returns starts coming in.

Every year, new businesses keep springing up, people are stepping out to have their own business.
In the light of new startups, one of the most difficult part of having your own business is knowing where to begin. Most solopreneurs start up without arming themselves. No wonder every year we see new startups opening and closing. Statistics as published by Forbes has it that,approximately half a million small businesses get started each month but more shut down than start up.

What are they not doing?

These statistics is not intended to discourage you from starting your business, rather, it is to encourage you to be smart before you launch your business.

These 7 powerful tips will help you startup and sustain your business

1 .Have An Idea: Every great business began with a great idea and without an idea, there will be no business. Your idea is the major drive of starting your own business. An idea is simply the first milestone in the process of growing and sustaining a business. Your business idea should revolve around your passion.
Why am I saying this?
Your passion is the driving force that will help you pursue and sustain your business. Your passion can be identified by what you love doing, what gives you fulfillment and happiness and trying out ways to monetize it.This is where you turn your passion into a business.

2. Do Your Research: As reported by Fortune, startups fail because, “They make products no one wants.” This is where research comes in.It will be totally out of place to start up a business without a background research. Research is an essential tool for all businesses that wants to flourish and be sustained.

Doing a research has a lot of benefits.

  • You will know if there is a demand or need for the product or service you want to launch. It is very necessary that you deliver what consumers need, not what you offer.
  • It will help you to redesign or repackage your product or service to satisfy the needs of customers.
  • It will help you to know the market trend and come up with a unique selling point to make you stand out and be ahead of the crowd.

With research, you have a knowledge of what other competitors are doing and not doing, how they are offering their services, branding and packaging.

3.Have A Business Plan: A business plan is a written guide describing the future of
your business. It is a road map for how a new business will achieve its goals and objectives’ business plan is not only meant for sourcing fund for your startup, with it, you can run and sustain your business. A business plan tells you what you plan to do in your startup and how you plan to do it.

4. Have A Business Goal: Your goal should help answer the question ‘why am I going into business?’ Every business in operation have a goal and mission statement. Having a goal is vital to the success of your startup business. A business goal will keep your startup in track and also give you something to walk towards. It serves as a tool to measure the success of your business. A business goal will help to provide guidance, direction and keep you focused.

5. Be Prepared: You probably would have heard about the 5p’s.The 5p’s says that, “proper preparation prevents poor performance.”
Now, you don’t intend to start up a business that will not grow and flourish, do you?
Before you start up your business, you’ll have to be fully prepared to face the challenge of owing a business, mapping out strategies and sweating it out in the market place. To be prepared is half of the victory because a startup without proper preparation is a disaster waiting to happen.

6.Check Out For Clues: According to Anthony Robinson (business and motivational coach),”success leaves clues”.
Nothing is new under the sun. There are entrepreneurs who are into your intended startup business before you. They have experienced the up’s and down’s of your intending niche, product or service line. There is nothing wrong in picking up one or two things from their experience. Experience is after all a great teacher. Their experience will help provide you with valuable strategy and approach for your startup. Have them in your radar.

7. Have An Online Presence: Everybody is on Facebook, let’s start there. Do not limit Facebook to be a channel where you chat and have new friends. Make it your advert board. Create an awareness there. Many startups are taking advantage of the social media to expand their target market, business and boost sales and productivity. An online presence will allow you to reach your target market easily and faster with every possibility of connecting to more clients. Tell your Facebook friends, Twitter followers or your LinkedIn connects what you are offering in your new startup. The world is now a global and technological village, go global with your startup business.

In conclusion, anybody can start up a business but not all can sustain it.The world of business today is all about value, knowing and doing the right thing and your capacity to sustain that value in the market place. Your startup business doesn’t have to be hard. Not after you have known and worked with these startup tips

The War Room

war-room

 

Do you have a war room?

Earlier this year, I got wind of a Christian film by the name ‘War Room.’I was just as curious to watch the drama film because of its title and also, with that title, it was a Christian film.

I downloaded the film and watched it….

This is a summary of the film and the message.

War Room is a 2015 American Christian drama film directed by Alex Kendrick and co-written and produced by Stephen Kendrick.

WAR ROOM

The plot was about a family:
Tony-a pharmaceutical sales person (husband)
Elizabeth-a realtor (wife)
Daniella (daughter)
The couple has a successful career but a strained marriage. Tony was not always there for their daughter. He verbally abuses his wife and daughter, even nursed the thought of cheating on his wife. The only thing they did together as a couple was a fight.

Then Elizabeth met Clara, an old widow. Being a realtor who wanted to help Clara sell her house, Elizabeth got along with Clara and there, Clara sensed the stress in Elizabeth’s marriage. She told Elizabeth to fight for her marriage and not give up.
During a tour of Clara’s house, Clara showed Elizabeth a special closet she has dedicated to praying and calls it her ‘War Room’ and as she has put it, ”in order to stand up and fight the enemy, you need to get on your knees and pray.” The War Room had scriptural notes  and prayer points taped to the wall.
Elizabeth, after giving it a careful thought, got her own war room.

“She cleared her closet. She gave up her vanities just to have her marriage back.”

Later on, Tony got fired for stealing drug samples. It was a hit to the bottom for him, he then dedicated his life to God. Tony having drawn close to God decided to return some stolen samples still with him. This has every likelihood to put him away in prison. Tony’s former boss was moved by his admittance to wrongdoing and decided not to press charges. Tony started showing interest in his daughter’s activities and offered to participate with her and her friends in an upcoming double Dutch competition at the local community center.
Their team took second place in the competition which paved the way for the restoration of father and daughter relationship.
Elizabeth finally got Miss Clara’s house sold out to a retired pastor while Tony was offered a job as the director of the community center.

THE MESSAGE

  • War is a part of humanity in every age: fight for power, freedom, love, marriage. There’s always something to fight for.
  • Many battles we engage in today, especially emotional; very few of us know how to fight the right way or understand who we should really fight against.
  • To win any battle, you’ve got to have the right strategy and resource because victories don’t come back accidentally.
  • The spiritual controls the physical. Lashing out, complaining, whining, tweeting never solves war or mess. Seek God for the right strategy.
  • Anyone who goes into the war room comes out victorious.
  • It’s your duty to pray and it’s God’s duty to fix the war.
  • Prayer is the best weapon to fight. Get a prayer life or fuel up the one you already have.
  • Most importantly, hand over your life and all that is yours to God. You need a relationship with God to have a ‘War Room.’

 

My Thoughts on War Room

I simply loved the way war room addressed some issues faced in marriage and the efficacy of prayers. People will get it right through prayers.
When Clara found her voice and place, she reminded the enemy about the change in management. She took charge. It was a wake-up call to stand and fight; enough of the enemy toying with her marriage and sanity. She confessed and gave voice to situations and by so doing, she gave life to her faith which in turn manifested her confession.

The War Room is all about raising up more that will call and seek the face of God. An army of believers who are not ashamed of the gospel, who hate to be lukewarm.
It’s about raising up a generation that will not compromise under pressure. Raising up warriors who will take their stand, who will seek and worship God.

There you are…..The film is packed with loads of messages which I know you will find out too when you watch it.

 

Have you watched War Room? Tell me your thoughts too.
And if you are yet to watch it, this is an opportunity to go and watch it.You can also share your thoughts here too 🙂

I eagerly await your comments and if you are yet to follow my blog, please do to get more inspiring, great and fresh tips to help you live positively and purposefully.

You will get it right!

A Purposeful October

a

 

With excitement, positivity, and purpose exuding here; I welcome you all my dear readers, friends, and lovelies to another new month.

This month is an opportunity, another chance, another shot to give purpose to all areas of your life.

  • Your Christian life
  • Your marriage
  • Your relationship
  • Your business and career
  • Your life
    And here is what you will do

 

To Your Christian Life
Do not become a mere Christian (I am from a Christian background is not enough).Seek to know God more, draw closer to God. Don’t be complacent in your present state as a Christian. Get serious and committed.Don’t just become a Sunday Sunday Christian only, take your Christian life to the next level by developing a personal relationship with God, accepting the gift of salvation to mankind.
Make a better Christian out of yourself each day.

 

“Christianity is a lifestyle, live like one.”

To Your Marriage
Marriage is beautiful. It is God’s idea. Make God the foundation of your marriage. Treat your marriage like a business (be committed, be determined).Marriage does not fail, people only fail in marriage. Work on becoming a better spouse. Know your place and fulfill your duties in marriage. Give purpose to your marriage.

To Your Relationships
Relationships don’t just happen, people make it happen. In your quest for relationships, seek purposeful relationships; relationships that will support your journey to fulfill the purpose for your life.
They are for a reason:
Be it in your home, protect your relationship with your family. Value your family. A family that is together will weather the storms outside.
Be it in your Christian life, move closer to God. Cultivate healthy relationships among brethren, do not forsake the gathering.
Be it in your business and workplace, grow relationships that will support your career. Treat your boss, clients and colleague right and well. To everyone, respect them.

To Your Business and Career
Your business is for a reason……profit maximization and customer satisfaction. Do not lose sight of why you went into business, your vision for your business. Don’t mix business with pleasure. Treat your clients like kings and watch them connect you to their wide empire. Customer satisfaction does it all. Boost your business by upgrading to the current trend. Your business and career are your means of income, don’t treat with levity.

To Your Life
A new you is possible. Keep working on yourself, your life is a process. You don’t need to see the whole staircase, just start with a step. Take that positive step, make that good choice, your choices work under The Principle Of Cause And Effect.

The Principle Of Cause And Effect

21

It is certain that you won’t be passing here (today) again. After today, it is going to be another new day tomorrow.
It is also certain that you will be making some choices and decision which will create events and happenings around your life.

The law has already been set!
What law?
“The Law of Cause and Effect”
By who?
The God of all creations. This law governs the activities of all creations. The law states that what a man sows, he will reap.
Good choices beget Good results
Bad choices beget Bad results
A seed of corn begets a corn;you only harvest what you planted.

“There cannot be a cause without an effect, the present must have had its cause in the past and will have its effect in the future.”

Life is about choices and decisions. For every choice and decision you make, there is an end result.
For clarity
Choice simply is the right, power and opportunity to choose; more of having a perception of what is right or wrong.
Who you are today and where you are is as a result of the choices you made yesterday. These choices can be good or bad: they define you, shape you, position you, make you, destroy you, relegate you, and limit you as the case may be.
The world at present is a product of the choices been made in the past.

The achievement of one’s life goals and objective always start with the opportunity to choose. The choices one makes are important to the future they want to feature in.
These choices confront us each day: the career path to follow, the relationship to go in, where to live; all are carried out upon one’s choice.

“People don’t fail in life because of their weakness. They fail because of their choices.”

A student who wants to have good grades will have to choose his academic performance over playing video games.
Parents who want their children to turn out well, will have to make the choice to give their children proper training or neglecting it.
People who want to live right will have to make the choice to avoid wrong association and habits.
Couples who seek to live happily will make a choice to work on their marriage.
Every choice, whether good or bad, has a consequence to reap from. If you want to live a productive, fulfilled life; you will have to make good choices to help you achieve it.
Your life is your responsibility. Your choice is your responsibility. We are all responsible for what happens around us.
The law of cause and effect cannot be violated because it governs the earth. The law guides every action-whether good or bad.

I know you have great plans for your life. You have dreams as well that you want to make reality. We have all been given the power to create a bright or dark future for ourselves through choices and decisions we make every day.
Do not forget to ask yourself always, if the choices you are about to act upon will benefit you in the short and long run, if it will help you grow and become better. Knowing the answer to this question will help you weigh the pros and cons and make a good choice.

Today is an opportunity,go ahead and make that good choice.

Seek God First

but-seek-first-the-kingdom-of-god-and-his-righteousnessand-all-these-things-will-be-added-to-you-1

If there is one thing Christians are moving away from, it is the kingdom of God.

 

With all the media hype of seminars, e-books, talk shows, tweets about pursuing and living a successful life; everyone wants to be the perfect example of the successful life. From a happy marriage, a six figure paying job, investment and properties, degrees and awards: everyone wants to have a taste of it!

 

It’s a rat race out there!

 

What did God say about all these?

Did God make adequate provision for all these comforts of life?

 

He did!

 

“But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.”matthew6:33

 

While God made provisions for our comfort, His primary concern, and purpose for our lives is to seek Him and know His ways. The instruction was to seek God first, not seek Him second, which has become the norm presently among Christians.

The fear and worry of missing out have driven many Christians into wrong choices, some dabbling into ungodly ventures which has taken them out of God’s plan for their lives.

God doesn’t have a problem with seeking the comforts of life when it is sought in a godly means.

If God instructed us to seek His ways first, He sure will fulfill His promise to add ALL things to our lives.John10:35b says, “Scriptures cannot be broken. “God is not a man to lie or go back on His promise to meet all our everyday concerns. God is God. He honors His words more than anything.

One may wonder why God wants us to seek His kingdom ways first.

God is more concerned about the state of our soul and spirit. He wants us to seek His ways to enable us to grow in character. He is more concerned about us living a life worthy of Him, making us a holy people.

Everything we pursue here on earth is not meant to last forever. They have limited span.God calls them ‘perishable’. Our soul is the main deal. God wants to prepare our soul for the life beyond-eternity.

God knows that earthly pursuit before seeking His kingdom will take us away from His plan and purpose for our lives. The question we need to ask ourselves is this:

 

Am I going to live for possessions, fame, and materialism?

Am I building my life on perishable things with no heavenly guarantee?

 

Seeking God and His ways is the end of our want.

“But those who seek the Lord lack no good thing.”psalm34:10

Bishop David Oyedepo, the founder of Living Faith Church worldwide(Winners Chapel) made this statement: “Everything added to my life where added when God considered them due. I didn’t need to ask for them. I never prayed for a house, wife, and car in my life. They were added when God considered them due. Matthew 6:33 covers you in all ramification.”

Matthew6:33 sets the pace for the future of Christians. It is the answer to all the questions of our lives.
If God did not spare His own son but gave Him up for us. How will He not also along with Him graciously give us ALL things?

When I remember that God gave up His only son for my sake, I can’t help but put all my trust in Him, obey His word to seek His ways first; knowing that He is more than able to meet all my needs.

It is good that we obey and seek God’s kingdom first, rather than seeking Him second. Whatever we acquire here on earth only ends here and they are not a guarantee for kingdom endorsement. The state of your soul will determine that.

 

Nothing will make your life more meaningful than knowing God first and walking in His righteousness.
It is my prayer that we all remain worthy vessels in God’s kingdom ready to seek Him first,to live for His righteousness and to accomplish all that He has called us to do.Amen!

To your purpose fulfillment!

 

 

 

I Will Wait For You-Janette…ikz

images

Hi lovelies,I came across this poem by spoken word poet,Janette..ikz,titled “I Will Wait For You.”
She’s gifted,passionate and has a terrific way with words.

Her spoken words really resonate with every single lady out there.
We all want to be loved,feel loved but most times,our quest for love drives us out of God’s good,perfect and pleasant will for our lives.And when this happens,we find it difficult to let go and let God fix us up with ‘the one’ that He says YES to.
God knows the best for us,He wants the best for us and He will give us the best.

To all our single ladies(guys inclusive),this spoken words is an encouragement and inspiration to wait for God for him/her.Trust God’s timing.
Allow your desire to get married to align with God’s will for your life.
Just go about God’s business of fulfilling His purpose for your life.

I Will Wait For You….

So it seemed,
that it was cool,
for everyone to be in a relationship but me.

So I took matters into my own hands
and… ended up with him.
him, who displayed the characteristics of a
cheater, a liar, an abuser, and a thief.

So why was I surprised when he broke into my heart?
I called 911, but I was cardiac-arrested for
aiding and abetting,
’cause it was me who let him in,
claiming we were “just friends.”

It was already decided for me by the first date that
even if he wasn’t,
I was gonna make him “the One.”

You know… I was tired of being alone,
and I simply made up in my mind,

that it was about that time
so I decided to drag him along for the ride,
’cause I was always the bridesmaid and never the bride.

A virgin in the physical,
but mentally just a grown woman on the corner in heat,
who was tired of the wait,
so I was gonna make him “the One.”

he had a… form of Godliness,
but not much.

But, but, hey, hey, I can change him,
so I’ll take him, I mean he’s close…
enough.

Ready to sell my aorta for a quarter,
not knowing the value of it’s used to be. (use to me?)
Arteries so clogged with my will,
it blocked His will from flowing through me.
So, I thank Christ that His blood pressure gave this heart an attack,
that flatlined my obscured vision, put me flat on my back.

that it was about that time
so I decided to drag him along for the ride,
’cause I was always the bridesmaid and never the bride.

Through my ignorance, He saw,
so through my sternum He sawed & cracked open my chest
to transplant Psalms 51:10,
a new heart
& a renewed right spirit within.
So now, I fully understand,
better yet, I thoroughly comprehend,
how much I need to wait
for You.

See,
the bad thing is
that I knew he wasn’t you from the beginning.
’cause in the beginning was the Word
and he didn’t even sound or shine like Your Son

Out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks,
and all he could whisper was
sweet,
empty
nothings–
which meantnothing!

he couldn’t even have prayed when I needed him to,
asking him to fast would be absurd,
so, forget about being cleansed & washed with water through the Word.

But I know you,
you are already praying for me.
Even never having met me,
let me assure you,
I will wait
for you.

I will no longer date,
socialize or communicate with carbon copies of you

to appease my boredom
or to quench my thirsty desire I have for attention
and short-lived compliments from ‘sorta kindas.’

You know, he ‘sorta kinda’ right, but ‘sorta kinda’ wrong?
His first name: Luke,
his last name: Warm.

Aye,
I won’t settle for false companionship.
I won’t lay in the embrace of his arms,
attempting to find some closeness,
but never feeling so far, far apart
’cause, I just wanna be held.
♫ ‘Cause all I gotta do is say♫
“No!”

No more ‘almost sessions’ of
‘almost coming close’
passing winks & buying drinks,
and ♫I’ma,
I’ma,
I’ma flirt!♫
Who flirts with the ideology of,
“Can you just tell me how much I can get away with & still be saved?”

No more.

I’ll stay in my bed,
alone,
and write poems,
about how I will wait for You.

he won’t even come close,
our fingers won’t even interlock,
we won’t even exchange breath,
’cause I have thoughts that I’ve ‘saved as’ in a file that God has only equipped you to open.

I will no longer get weighted (waited?) down,
from so-called friends & family talks,
about the concern for my biological clock
when I serve the Author of Time.
Who is not subject to time,
but I’m subject to Him.
He has the ability to stop, fast-forward, pause, or rewind at any given time.
So,
if we could role play,
you would be Abraham & I would be Sara,
or you can be Isaac & I can be Rebecca–a servant’s answered prayer.
I am
bone of your bone,flesh of your flesh,
made up of your rib, Adam.

And once we meet,
like electrons, I will be bound to your nucleus,
completely indivisible
atom.

We even speak the same math:
1 + 1 + 1 = 3,
which really equals 1 if you add Him.

We were all created in His image,
but you have the ability to reflect, project & even detect
the Son.
If I were to explain what you look like,
you would have to look like a star–
a sun of the Son.
I would gain energy simply from the light that you shine on me.
I would need you in order to complete my photosynthesis.
I await your revelation, but once again from the genesis,
I will wait for you.
And I will know you
because when you speak,
I will be reminded of Solomon’s wisdom,
your ability to lead will remind me of Moses,
your faith will remind me of Abraham,
your confidence in God’s Word will remind me of Daniel,
your inspiration will remind me of Paul,
your heart for God will remind me of David,
your attention to detail will remind me of Noah,
your integrity will remind me of Joseph,
and your ability to abandon your own will, will remind me of the disciples,
but your ability to love selflessly & unconditionally will remind me of Christ.
But I won’t need to identify you by any special Matthews
or any special marks,
’cause His Word will be tattoed all over your heart.

And you will know me,
and you will find me,
where
the boldness of Esther
meets the warm closeness of Ruth,
where the hospitality of Lydia
is aligned with the submission of Mary,
which is engulfed in the tears of a praying Hanna.
I will be the one,
drenched in Proverbs 31,
waiting for you.

But to my Father,
my Father who has known me before I was birthed into this earth,
only if You should see fit.

I desire Your will above mine.
So even if you call me to a life of singleness,
my heart is content with You–the One who was sent.
You are the greatest love story ever told,
the greatest love ever known.
You are forever my judge & I’m forever Your witness,
and I pray that I’m always found on a mission about my Father’s business.

I will always be Yours,
and I will always wait for You, Lord.
More than the watchmen wait for the morning,
more than the watchmen wait for the morning,
I will wait.

How To Fail And Succeed

Do you know that one of the quickest ways to be nothing is to do nothing?

If you don’t want to fail,do nothing.

If you don’t want to make mistakes,do nothing.

If you don’t want to succeed,do nothing……Then watch the world pass you by.

The world has painted the word ‘failure’ in a bad light that it has affected people’s mindset and approach towards failure.Many people have driven themselves into inertia as a result of the fear living inside of them .Ideas and dreams are on hold,fear of not been good enough_mediocrity is rampant,has stagnated a lot of people.

You see,the deal is this:no life is a failure,problem and mistake free.As long as you are enrolled in this school called LIFE,you are not immune or exempted from failure.No one is!

Failure has its reason for existing.Have you ever paused to ponder what life will look

like,would have been,if we try something and didn’t make mistakes,meet any resistance and challenge?

There would be no experience and story to tell or learn from.There would be no feeling of satisfaction at having done something.People appreciate more what they worked hard for to get than what they didn’t sweat to get.

From history,great men have been failing.Their success today is attributed to their failure.

Check this:

*Charles Darwin gave up a medical career and was told by his father,”you care for nothing but shooting dogs and rat catching.”

*Henry Ford failed and went broke five times before he succeeded.

*Thomas Edison’s teacher said he was too stupid to learn anything!As an inventor,he made 1,000 unsuccessful attempts at inventing the light bulb_an invention with 1,000 steps.When he was asked about his failings,he said,”I have not failed.I have just found 9,999 ways that do not work.”

These great men were not stopped by failure or mistakes,neither did they back off because of people’s opinion about them.

Humans are prone to failure because of limitation.

God pointed out  that,”though the righteous falls seven times,he will get up.”God is saying here that there will be a fall,a mistake and when it happens ;don’t stay down,don’t give up,dust yourself up and continue from where you fell.

If you must succeed in life,here are

TIPS ON HOW TO FAIL AND SUCCEED

1.Change Your Attitude Towards Failure:”As a man thinks,so is he.” The way you think and feel about failure affects your pursuit of success.You need a positive attitude to fail and try again.

God gave us a positive and bold spirit,not fear.Do not let fear ruin you.Do not fear failure.Try again.

2.Do Not Personalize Failure:It is human to fail.No one is immune from it.Failure is an event and not a person_not you.It is not a racial nor gene thing either.That you failed once does not make you a flop.It only means that you have not found the method that works.It is alright to fail but,not alright to stay down after failing.

3.See Failure As A Success Tool:When there is a pursuit,people look for ways and the tools to facilitate  and help achieve it.Trial and error are one of the tools of solving life’s problem.It is a necessary tool to know ways and methods that can produce the desired result.Thomas Edison found 9,999 ways that will not work out for his light bulb invention.

4.Learn From Your Failure:Failure is a teacher.At every point in life,there are two ways to getting paid:with money or experience.If you fail,you have succeeded halfway by trying and have also gained experience

As you step out to pursue your dreams:let your dreams be bigger than your fears.Let your desire be greater than the fear and thought of failure.Do not allow the fear of failure to limit you or deny you the opportunity to seek and explore other ways of achieving your dreams,ambition and glorious destiny.
Failure does not come from falling down.Failure comes from not getting up.

What You Never Knew About Switching Lanes

car switch

“Never change lanes without giving the proper signal and looking to make sure the move can be made safely”

This is one of the tips used by drivers to prevent collision on highways but,is it also applicable in our walk to fulfill our purpose?
The story of the parable of the talent has been popping up at every turn these past few days.I just knew  that God is trying to point out something there to help us in our life’s journey.
“Again,it will be like a man going on a journey,who called his servants and entrusted his property to them.To one he gave five talents of money,to another two talents and to another one talent,each according to his ability.Then he went on his journey.”(Matthew25:14-15)
Some people are still oblivious that God is the giver of talents and gifts.The scripture again stated that “The gift and calling of God is without repentance”God won’t change his mind about what He has called us to do or the lane He has assigned to us.God is the source of life, owner of every gift and talent.Your gift and talent are God’s investment over your life.Every life is an investment meant to yield interest.

Last month,I told a friend about my intention to revive and stay commited to my blog.He commended me and threw in his support.He said that I was going to be’ Linda Ikeji the second'(grinning:Linda is Nigerias blogger queen on entertainment)I told him that I am not and can never be Linda Ikeji.I am ‘Jane the first’,lol.Linda is plowing her own field with her talent and I am also going to plow my own field-purpose.
God does not make make mistakes.He created us each with latent gift and talent which are meant to be discovered,explored,harnessed and deployed but,when we abandon our talent and try to switch lane,we limit our originality.

The rule is this:
For you to function as an original,maximize your life,you will have to stay in the confines of the abilities wired into you.God gives gift based on ability.He knows what you can be good at,the lane that best suits and describes you.When you leave who you were meant to be to become someone else,you become a photocopy.

Linda Ikeji caught an idea and with her talent is flourishing today, through her blog.Mark Zukerberg also caught and is making it through Facebook.;even Seun of Nairaland.All of which are blazing a trail.
It’s surprising how some people with ‘microwave success syndrome’ see other peoples success and abandon their gift,talent,lane,calling,assignment to work in another mans field,not knowing that no matter how they try to imitate them,they can never be them or go beyond them.Life is all about what you have been wired and created to be.

Why imitate someone else?
Why walk in another man’s lane?
Why abandon,neglect your gift to take up someone’s else?

Imitation is limiting yourself.Make your life easier by plowing your own field.
You are peculiar and special to God.All it takes to fulfill purpose,your God-given destiny, become successful is to be YOURSELF.God has no photocopying machine to make  multiple duplicate.He has one mold for each person,no two persons are the same.
When you try to be someone else,the best you can ever be is number two.You can never rise above the person you are imitating.Don’t go looking outside,your gifts are inside of you waiting to be discovered.

Sit down with God and search within you.Seek God.
Draw near to God and He will draw near to you.You are perculiar and special to God.The sky is large enough to accomodate everyone and their uniqueness,gift and talent.
Stick to your path,mind your lane.
stay focused on your life’s journey.
Dare to be different,Dare to be you!

To your purpose fulfillment!

A September To Remember

sept

Hiya Lovelies!

I welcome you all to another month.It’s of God’s mercy that we were not consumed;His love has brought us into a new month.
And you know what?

A new you is possible too!
Make it a September to remember…..HOW?

Be Deliberate about your actions and actions.
“Everything you do or refuse to do is either moving you towards your goal or away from your goals.”
I set a goal last month to revive this blog:to be committed to it,do what God wants me to do here;reach out to you.I worked towards that goal and by His grace today,my blog is back! Yea,lol.This September is another chance to light up someone’s life,bless beautiful lives and share my thoughts wth you.

We all have goals.we all do,which we intend to achieve with a time frame.
It could be a goal to start up a business,to step up your walk with God,to stop a bad habit or activity which does not support your well-being,to end a wrong relationship,to improve on yourself.
Whichever,stick to your goal and work towards achieving it.It is all about:
*Making the decision
*Taking the right step
* Discipline,Commitment,Consistency and
*Committing your goals to God.

It is never too late to have a goal,have an aim.
Let’s make this a September to remember.

To A Purposeful September!
