“If the only prayer you said in your whole life was, ‘Thank you,’ that would suffice” – Meister Eckhart

Goke and I have said quite a number of things about the attitude in the past. If you haven’t read them, please do check them out – “Gratitude: An important virtue for reaching higher…faster,” and “Learn the Attitude of Gratitude.”

Well, I want to practice just what we’ve been talking about. I want to walk the walk, not talk the talk! So, thank you for stopping by here today! It gives us so much joy to know a lot of people actually do come around to draw some inspiration from what we’ve got to say. Thanks for clicking on whatever link that brought you here. :-)

In August alone, we had well over 1100 hits. That’s more than twice the number of hits we got in July! :-D What more could we ask for. Thanks a lot guys! We’re so humbled by your support. We’re glad you’ve decided to hang with us as we strive daily to become all that’s possible for us to be!

Things people come here searching for:

  • meister eckhart prayer of thanks

All About P-E-R…

Hey folks! We’re almost done with August! This is the last lap. It’s time to re-evaluate. It’s time to go back to the list of goals you made in the beginning of the month. How many did you get to achieve? How many did you miss by a little margin? Remember the famous quote from Aristotle, “Excellence is not an act, it’s a habit.”

The plan, execute, and re-evaluate principle, over the years, has proven to be very effective. All it entails is: You set the goals you want to achieve and decide on how you want to go about achieving it (plan). Then, you go for it! – (Execute). After that, you relax and re-evaluate. If you hit the target, you give yourself a treat, rejuvenate, and get ready to go again. If you missed the target, you analyze your strategy and make the necessary amendments. After that, you fire again!

No matter how many times you fire, it’s never too much until you hit your target! So, as we get ready to wrap up August and head into September, revisit those goals. Remember them, do your best to achieve them, and set new ones for September!

Don’t Stop At Wishing…

Good morning y’all. I had one of my proudest moments this summer when I read a post by my little cousin, Ezinne Njoku, on facebook. She’s just 13, but her words poked something inside me. :-) So, I’ve decided to share that with you today. Here we go:

“Wishing! It only stimulates your brain, it doesn’t stimulate action. Wishing is just a list made in your head about what you want to do or become. YOU!!! Have to make it happen!”

I hope I’m not the only one that thinks she should totally become a motivational speaker! :-D So as you go through your day, remember: Only YOU can bring your goals to life!

Put the Pieces Together…

“Outstanding success comes when you identify your strengths and make friends with those whose strengths are your weaknesses.”

Imagine an artist making a collage. He puts the picture together piece by piece. The pieces are not necessarily from the same source (pieces of scrap books and pictures), but he arranges the collection in such a way that the end product comes out to be so pretty.

For us to achieve great success, we must think of our lives in the same way an artist thinks of a collage. The only difference is: the pieces in this case would be people. The fact that no one can achieve great success alone cannot be overemphasized. We cannot do everything ourselves. We need people…the right people.

We need to identify those people who can do the things we can’t do. We need to identify the people whose strengths are our weaknesses! This applies to every area of our lives. To excel academically, we need to make friends with people who are better than we are at the courses we’re struggling with. In creating a business, too. You might have have the idea, but neither the managerial skills, the technical skills nor the IT skills. So, what do you do? You find people that have those skills – they might be friends. And together you’ll make that idea come to life! It’s how the differences individuals bring come together to increase the strength of the group that makes diversity rock! Collage is the name of the game! :-)

Really, it doesn’t take much to put the pieces together. Start with one piece. Identify someone who has a skill that is crucial to your success and work a little closer to him. Let him help you in that area. And who knows…? Maybe after a little while, you might become incredibly good as well! :-D

Dare To Hold On…

“In a world filled with hate, we must dare to hope. In a world filled with anger, we must still dare to comfort. In a world filled with despair, we must still dare to dream. And in a world filled with distrust, we must still dare to believe.” – Michael Jackson

You know that feeling of being so down that you feel like you’ve been robbed of hope? We’ve all felt that way. You might even be there right now: when everything seems to go bad all at once… You’re not alone! There is a saying, “It gets the darkest right before the dawn.”  If you’d just hold on tight and not let go, you’ll get you wanted to go. No one can tell you exactly when, but you will! So this week when you face challenges, remember: it’ll all work out, somehow!

Here’s a great video that will help strengthen that mindset: that things won’t always be terrible (If you don’t give up). Hope you draw something from it. Have fun!
