Just like that, the first quarter of the year 2019 is gone! It’s a new quarter and a new beginning, get yourself set mentally, emotionally and physical to make it count! How do you do that? Take a step back ; take a pause and appreciate your milestones. Be #Grateful.
There is always more and the best will yet happen for you! But remember –
If you can not appreciate where you are now then you will not be satisfied when you get to your desired destination!
Enjoy your week and have a truly blessed April.

The Count Down to the new year ended days ago and here we are already counting days! Don’t be alarmed or worried if you are yet to figure out your goals and plans.Perhaps you have a few things figured out already but don’t even know the moves to make or steps to take yet towards achieving your goals. Hey… take your time, it is not a hundred metres dash race! Slow and Steady will eventually win the race!
SOMETIMES YOU DON’T HAVE TO START A NEW YEAR WITH A NEW GOAL-
Review the previous years projects and goals and see if you need to build /consolidate on things you started last year. Mostly we all think that there must be new goals and plans for the new year, this is not always necessary. You can expand on things you are already working on and achieve a higher level of growth and success.
Tips to Help you with Running Your Race this new year
Take time out to think through what you want changed; what you want to achieve or acquire.
Write down a list of the changes you want and what you want to achieve.
Take a closer look and ask yourself, “What is really important to me right now?”. This is cutting down on your long list to help you arrive at the most productive and profitable goals that will help make your life better.
Remember 2019 is personal to you –Yes you arrived in the new year with friends, family and colleagues, remember the Journey is personal to everyone.
Run your own race, stop that habit of comparing yourself with that of others around you. YOU REALLY DO NOT KNOW THEIR STRUGGLES!
5.When you become clear about what is really important to you, get specific about what you want to achieve in that particular area. For Example : One of my main goal and pursuit this year is, “Self Development”. So I sat down to think through and pen down what area of my life I want to develop. SKILLS- I want to learn more about video editing using my smartphone. Already I am checking out apps and reaching out to a friend who is good at this. FAITH – Plan my week every Sunday and decide on what book of the Bible to study and focus on for each week.
6. TAKE ACTION– It is not enough to know or be clear about what you want to achieve, you have to take action to make them happen. You don’t have to necessarily take a big leap; take small and simple steps to get you to making a reality of your dreams/goals. It can be as simple as making a call; reading a book about the new skill you want to acquire ; changing your diet, exercising more; building a better love life ; enrolling in a course or simply just getting out of bed everyday to do something.
7. Take time to connect with the divine and pray about your goals and what you want to see happen for you. I tell you there is a place for divine or supernatural help.
8. Love yourself; Love your life, Live your life.
2019 is not a hundred metres dash; run your race, slow and steady and win your race.

If you trekked(long walk) and endured a lot during your NYSC(National Youth Service Corp) days then you must be greatful that you made it through like me😀
I remember the long walks from Roundabout Mokola to Dugbe(some kilometers) many times – no money
I remember walking home in the rain one day as I wept but no one could tell the difference between my tears and that of the rain
I remember that I had so much fun too.
I remember the day of our passing out after the one year service to our father land(Nigeria) . I held the certificate of discharge in my hand and wondered what the future holds for me.
Its been over 17 years now! My journey through the years has delivered to me opportunities I never imagined! Now I drive through those same kilometers and neighborhoods I had to walk through in the rain/high sunny day 🌞🌞⛈️
Tough Times Don’t Last… That painful and dark season will soon pass giving way to light and better days. DON’T GIVE IN.
So I am here today saying thank you Lord, Baba e seee! Glory to God!
It is a brand new week…Are you feeling fresh and ready to go?! I know for some your body aches probably because your weekend was busy with loads of tasks to finish.
Tips To Run With
Take a deep breath.
Maintain some minutes of quietness and make a list of things you are grateful for.
Pen your to-do list for today; the week…whatever works for you.
Take your tasks one at a time.
Stop worrying about whether the week will turn out fine. It will as you face each day with optimism and a can-do spirit.
Remember to rest in between your tasks. Have moments of me time
So go seize your week and make the best of it.
This post was inspired by the book titled- Seize the Day: Living on Purpose and making every day countwritten by Joyce Meyer.
This woman inspires me a great deal. She survived her abusive childhood and through Grace that found her came through the journey of finding healing and hope. Today she is a blessing to many lives, preaching the love of God and has written over 60 books. Now that is living life on purpose! The book “Seize the Day” is loaded, motivating and down to earth; after reading my copy of the book I am more intentional about my daily activities.
Some quotes from the book:
If we are not willing to risk what we have now, we will never find out what we could have
Passion keeps us going even in times when we want to give up.
A positive mind leads to an energetic, enthusiastic life –Joyce Meyer
What value are you bringing to that group, job, career, and office?
It is whatever Value that you are bringing that people pay for.
Where you are deficient, get people to help you.
Increase your value through self development. Take a course, go for a training ; Read a lot more… Just Learn something new.
One good way to increase your value is to take a look at the market trends, find out what new skills are been sourced for by business owners and organizations and acquire such skills. Reposition yourself for greatness!
Enjoy your day 😘
