Hey fam! Hope you’ve been having a great week! I’ve been so busy in the past few days. I can’t remember the last time I slept before 3am! Yes, it’s been that crazy. But I’m glad everything’s been working out great. I’ve never stopped thinking about seeds in words. I love your devotion to this site.
Here’s a video I stumbled upon. It’s by Les Brown – a very successful entrepreneur and one of the most renowned motivational speakers alive! Please endeavor to draw all you can from it! Enjoy!
I once heard Jim Rohn say, “Set high goals for yourself; not just for the thrill of its achievement, but for what it will make you to achieve it.” When he said it, I caught it! And I’ve never let it go since then!
You see, the focus is supposed to be on the disciplines we practice and impose on ourselves to be able to achieve the goals we set! At the end of the day, it’s what you’ve become that counts; not really what you achieved. You want to work so hard at your goals that you learn to properly manage your time, plan your day, set daily objectives, all of this leading to the eventual achievement of that one goal you set for yourself. So that once you’ve achieved that goal and it’s all said and done, you would’ve become a better person than you were before setting out to achieve the goal!
A few hours ago, I walked into a friend’s room and saw a picture. It was shaded to perfection. I couldn’t quite figure out what the picture was, but I was quite astonished by it’s beauty. At the back of my head, I knew it must have cost him a fortune. I immediately asked my friend to explain what the image on the picture was. He did, but ended with this remark, “Michelle – his girl friend – drew it!” I was speechless!! But here’s where it gets confusing: Michelle is a Chemistry major!!! In my head, I was like, “Whaat!! Such a waste of talent!” I got on to her for minutes upon minutes. In her defense, she said, “It’s my hobby. I love doing it, but I love chemistry, too. Nevertheless, I don’t think I can make a living as an artist.”
Hey guys! I was listening to this while doing my chores today. I couldn’t wait to share it with you guys! It’s from one of my most profound mentors – Jim Rohn.
If you can listen to the whole audio, that would be great! But if you can’t then, please jump to 3:27. Have fun!
So, we’re in a new month – the ninth month of the year! We have three months to go before the end of the year. I think now, more than ever, is the time when we could really use all the time we can get – to put finishing touches on things. Brian Tracy – a successful business man, and personal development coach – touches on just that in this video. He’s one of my favorites! Have fun!
“The mind is everything. What you think you become” – Buddha
I woke up this morning thinking about a story I was told as a little child. It’s a little daunting but it’ll be worth your time, trust me.
Here’s the story: a circus elephant was kept in a cage about 10x10ft in dimension for years. During those years, the elephant subconsciously learned how to maximize his space constraint and so got used to it. However, during a massive renovation, the management of the zoo decided to release the elephant back into the wild. But something interesting happened: once the elephant was released into the wild (even though he had the entire forest open to him), all he could do was move around in an area about 10x10ft in dimension. His mind had become so locked into his caged space constraints that he couldn’t embrace the enormous freedom before him!
“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.
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.”
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! So as you go through your day, remember: Only YOU can bring your goals to life!
“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.
