Still Contemplating Going After Your Goals? Here is What You Need to Start

So many businesses, dreams, aspirations that could have changed the world have not seen the light of the day due to a lack of courage. Every waking day sends people into obscurity who could have been famous had they had the courage to put some efforts on their dreams and goals.

Folks to do anything meaningful in this world, you must not stand back, and muse about the things that can go wrong in your ideas, or wait for the perfect chances of big opportunities before you venture out. The Bible says, that “Whoever keeps staring at the wind won’t sow; whoever daydreams won’t reap.”

Too many folks today spend so much time calculating and consulting with others until one day they find that they have lost all the time available. While it is good to think things through, it is dangerous to over think. For some others, the reason their dreams and goals are not being realized is that they are looking for the validation of others before they pursue those dreams and goals.

It’s Not Too Late To Have A Great Year

It’s November, just two months to the end of this year. While people who may not have hit their goals for the year may be exasperated that the year is running too fast, I am holding on to God’s word that says, “better is the end of a thing than the beginning thereof”

No matter where you are on your goals for the year, just remember that it is over yet, and you can still crown this year with success. But for this to happen, you must get up each day to begin to turn things up. You see the greatest obstacle to success in life is just sitting by and trusting that something will turn up instead of going to work and turning things up.

Today too many people are relying on chance, horoscope, or luck rather than on certainties. This mindset as slowly crept into our churches, where we find Christian faithful who wouldn’t put God’s word to work by taking the steps to bring their dreams to reality, instead they wait for things to be miraculously provided for them.

Now I am not against trusting and relying in God, by all means we should. But we must proof our trust by going out to our part. God provides for the birds and animals, how much more us. But then observe the birds and animals, and you will realize that no bird or animal sits back in its nest, hole, or den, and wait for food to be provided. They instead go out, to find God’s provision. Continue reading It’s Not Too Late To Have A Great Year

A Prayer to Make The Best of The Day

God we thank you for a new day, for another opportunity to redeem ourselves. O Lord, you who is infinite wisdom and the source of all strength, grant that whatever today brings whether good fortune, disappointment, pain or pleasure, we may meet it with a brave heart and a cheerful face and use it to your glory and the good of others.

Help us to be interested in the welfare of others, that we shall not just be thinking only of ourselves; so intent on winning your approval that we shall not be unduly concerned with the opinion of men.

When the strength and time you have allotted for this day’s struggles have been exhausted, grant O Lord, we ask that we may be a little closer to the goals that you have set for us in the race to be like Christ. Amen

Daily Wisdom: It is About What You Do and Not What You Say

Put your principles into practice. It is what you do and not what you say that matters. Stimulate your ideas into action. Dormant ideas and aspirations are of no value when they remain inside you, it is only when they are put into action that they become value to you and the world.

Make your thoughts work for you. Transform your desires into deeds, your resolutions into results. Your personal powers are made paramount by ideals, principles, desires and resolutions. The specific ways in which you use these powers in your daily life will largely determine how successful you become.

Give earnest attention to these vital things, apply them intelligently and you will go forward to inevitable achievement. Success will be yours precisely to the degree that you use your powers right.

Why are You Alive?

There is nothing more sad and sickening that to see a person who nurses a dream, an ambition, always wishing and hoping, but never doing anything about it. He nurses the flickering dream, but never lets it break out into flame.

Some of you are that way. You talk and think about having a second income, or owning your own business, or pursuing your dreams.

Or maybe you have private dreams in other areas: you want to go back to school to pursue another degree; you have a small business and you are thinking about expanding; you want to travel abroad; you want to start a career of becoming a speaker or writing a book.

I could go on and on with this list. Too many of you dream but you never dare say I can and I will put my dreams out there by taking action no matter how small the efforts may be, because you are afraid to fail. Continue reading Why are You Alive?

Stop Sitting on The Edge

One day two butterflies were on the edge of a flower, discussing. One said, “We cannot know whether there is any honey in the flower; no butterfly ever found honey, and no butterfly ever will.” The other said, “Well, nevertheless, I think there might be some.” And while they argued back and forth, a humming-bird flew in and ran its long beak into the flower, and sipped the sweetness they flew away.

Most of us are like these two butterflies, we sit by, discussing, arguing, planning, and praying but we never dare take action. And while we contemplate and plan, someone else rushes in and takes the opportunities from under us and become successful.

There is a saying that “fools rush in where Angels fear thread.” While this statement may be true for people who act without plans, the world we live in today has been made better because some people acted where others were too scared and sceptical to take action. Do you have a dream, vision or goal? Enough of all the talk about your intentions step out today and act on them and you will see that circumstances, events and people will come your way to help you succeed.

Enough of Just Hoping

Life is a challenge, a struggle, a push, to be the best you can be, to make the most of your life. But in that struggle, push, or challenge is the value of life. Those who don’t push, don’t succeed. Those who sit by and whine and complain always remain that way.

A lot of us are hoping and wishing for a good life. We believe God is going to take care of our future for us, that everything is going to turn out just fine in the end. Sure I believe in miracles and I know that God has good plans for us. But those plans won’t come to pass without us playing our own roles.

You can’t sit around and expect things to work out without you doing anything. Stop hoping without taking action. Stop wishing without doing. Let me tell you the truth, your life isn’t going to change, if anything it is going to change for worse if you don’t get up and start acting on it. Continue reading Enough of Just Hoping

Take Immediate Action

“The universe is wider than our views of it.” – Henry David Thoreau

Are you fond of procrastinating and shifting your dreams and responsibilities to some later day? Think about this message from the scriptures; “How do you know what your life will be like tomorrow? Your life is like the morning fog–it’s here a little while, then it’s gone.” There is a cemetery in the district where I live, and each weekend someone is buried. And every time I notice this many thoughts and questions run through my mind; did the individual who is buried achieve his/her dreams? Did they accomplish what they set out to do? Were they happy when they died? Etc.

Folks this life is momentary. If you have dreams and goals now is the time to begin them. Today is best time to begin all those worthy plans and dreams you’ve been contemplating on. You’ve probably heard the saying that delay is dangerous and procrastination weakens purpose, why don’t you get up now and seize the opportunity while it is still within your reach? You may wake up tomorrow and realize that everything is gone. I have missed some opportunities in my life and I can tell you it was really a painful experience for me when I realized what I had lost by failing to take action.

Bill Gates one of the richest people in the world was asked during an interview on “Larry King Live” what his secret of success was, and if luck had any role to play in it. And replied thus, (in Paraphrasing) Larry maybe luck had a role to play in it, maybe I was at the right place at the right time, but you know I wasn’t the only one there. Others were there at the time too but the difference was I had a bigger sense of vision. And he went on to say, “Larry” I wasn’t the only one with a bigger vision but what made the real difference was that I took immediate and massive action. Continue reading Take Immediate Action
