“Whenever you want to achieve something, keepyour eyes open, concentrate and make sure youknow exactly what it is you want. No one can hittheir target with their eyes closed.”― Paulo Coelho
FOCUSThe lion is known for its focus and its power ofconcentration. Even amidst the herd of its prey,the lion sets its target on just one member of theherd and it stays focused on it, till it brings itdown. The lion is never wavering or distracted byany means to change focus when it made up itsmind.Such is the power of steadfastness. If a merebeast could dispel distraction and display suchsingle mindedness that is sharp enough to bringdown its prey, you possess much more power tocontrol unwarranted indecisions and distractionsand achieve your desires without wavering. Onlyyou can decide what is most important per time.Now, your desire is one more important thing inyour life that will not be achieved unless youremain steadfast.
“You are never too old to set another goal orto dream a new dream.”― C.S Lewis

No great man ismade out of little thinking.Until you allow what you are willing topossess become a driving force you arenot living well enough. Today let yourpassion become an action that stretchesyou towards what you desire.Do you know that our greatest inspirationcomes from the want of what we lack?However, they are not always far fromwhat we can have if we allow them starteven as little as a dream- Remember, ifyou can dream it, you can reach it.

Keep On…You never know how close you are when youpermit the stinking thinking of giving up rip you ofyour prize.There can’t be a more memorable time in theworld to cease than when the world attend yourfuneral and affirms this assertively of you, ‘Hererest a man who did all his best.’ All you need tobeat the best records most times is a little than ittakes to make.Every athlete on the track knows that they are amicro second away from breaking existing records.Most times, what stands between a man and arecord breaking feat is just 1/60th of a second….lifeexpect you to hold on.Whatever field you find yourself, keep on, keepingon; it’s just a little more that is required to beatthe status quo and live above the usual routine.

RowsThe only time in the world fitting enough to buildsustaining character is when your expectations facedifficulties that alters your suitable outcomes.What are you going through presently-adversity,bitterness, sickness, worry, pain….name it. Younever know who you’re –strong or weak until suchsituations introduces you to your true self. BillVaughan observed, ‘In the game of life, its a goodidea to have a few early losses which relieves youof the pressure of trying to maintain an undefeatedseason.’Now, it is not such seasons that defeats you, in factsuch painful experiences do not break you, suchtimes groom you and give you sustaining strengthto reach the hallmark of your designated purpose.In truth, the highest end of your life does not trulymanifest until you have conquered some seriousagonizing battles….that’s the way all champions aremade.
‘When I look back on all these worries, I remember thestory of the old man who said on his death bed that he hadhad a lot of trouble in his life, most of which neverhappened’- Winston Churchill
Looking Back?One of the great books I’ve read is the bible. In oneof its records, it record the event of God partingthe Red Sea before the Israelites. As amazing as themiracle, the Israelites also did their own part, theytook a bold step by crossing over.Whatever lies ahead of you is already a partedsea,…hesitations and worries on past failures areuncalled for otherwise you may make the error ofwithdrawing from a readily accomplished task thatrequires your determination to superintend.There is no mistake as great as putting a questionmark where God already puts a full stop. There isno standing still where God already marks amoving on. What is required of you is to identifythe honour that you seek and put up a bold face tosecure it regardless of the oddities.
‘Life’s tragedy is that we get old too soon andwise too late’- Benjamin Franklin
This Defies it…To a lame man the law of gravity simply put is anythingthat goes up must come down. Interestingly not yourage! No one is growing younger regardless of thedecorative walls of cosmetics. You waste consummatetime if you fall in the category of those who still havenot found the champion in themselves.Don’t end up being the man everyone around ask,‘What purpose you sincerely live for?’ only to leavethem wondering at your funeral, ‘What one decisionyou made that made some sort of unusual difference?’Sternly, you may not live long as much as you may haveanticipated; at least nobody live.Live so much, so long with as much courage to makeyour life worth the while. Make purposeful decisionsnow, take a bold step. For this reason Henri Fredericadvised, ‘For purpose of action nothing is more usefulthan narrowness of thought combined with energy ofwill.’ Give your life a taste no one can resist.
‘The insatiable thirst for everything which liesbeyond, and which life reveals ,is the most livingproof of our immortality’- Charles Baudelaire
Be ThirstyImagine you’ve just returned home from ascorching sun, opening the fridge, you found nowater. Heavily dehydrated, you get to theclosest shop hoping to get water and you weretold the last one have just been sold and almosteverywhere you get to, same scenarioprevails….until one final move when you finallygot one, even at an exorbitant price.Just like you don’t wait in your room for thewater to come, just like you stooped at nothingto get it, just like you don’t even mind thechoking price…just in same vein….don’t wait,stop at nothing and don’t mind the sacrifice toreach your desire.Your life is what you make it and you mustnever allow what you desire be at the mercy ofyour challenges. The water paradox isinstructive, get thirsty.
‘Never be bullied into silence. Never allow yourself to bemade a victim. Accept no one’s definition of your life;define yourself.’- Harvey Fierstein
Are you a FOOL?I did not ever remember God creating a fool! Yoursuccess is not and will never be tied to the singulardiscretion of some people’s opinion of you. Peoplewho can hardly see through their stained glassesshould not tell you how unclean your life looks-Maybe they should blame the medium through whichthey see you.Set timely, well laid goals. Be proactive and guideyour outcomes with well thought out plans. Yoursuccess is reaching the maximum potential availableto you at any given point. Success has got little ornothing to do with a dream that is achieved throughimpulse alone. Your ability to repeat a feat throughwell guided arrangements makes you a master ofthe act.The only fool I happen to remember; I attended hisfuneral last night and I’m sure you are not the one.The world awaits your reckoning- Don’t disappoint.
‘A life spent making mistakes is not only morehonourable, but more useful than a life spent doingnothing’- George Bernard Shaw
Mistakes or FailureFailure: Quitting an inch to success.Mistakes: Putting a square peg in a round hole.Supposedly to me, a mistake is still a little progressthan an outright surrender. At least a mistake islearning one more way it can’t work than stoppingto learn outrightly.When you make a mistake, there are three thingsyou should ever do about it- 1. Admit it 2. Learnfrom it. 3. Don’t repeat it. Failure is like suicide- apermanent solution to a temporary situation. Withfailure you now reach total stoppage, whilemistake gives you a chance to pick up the pieces.You learn more from mistakes- You learn howmany ways of how not to do what you seek toachieve and just one way to doing it. Make moremistakes- progress is assured with each one thanoutright resignation
