In those days while growing up, we used to sing
‘Colourful and bright, I must get there… my future is
bright, I must get
there, my future is colourful, I must get there’
Fast forwarding yesterday into today, which is the
‘future’ of yesterday;
How colouful has it become?
How close have you gotten to the colourful future
you sang about yesterday?
I know it’s way beyond the beginning of the year
and I also know the year
2016 is fast running and it’s quite a shock that the
1st quarter is gone
already. Sitting by my bed side window, I decided
to take stock of all that has happened thus far, and to remind myself of the
channel I discovered
some time back. I am very much aware that there
are many out there who
may not be where they intend to be yet, so I
decided to share my discovery and easy-to-do list as my special birthday gift to the
Thank you for allowing me bring this Colourful
magic bird into your homes,
as God begins to do a quick work on your lives…
1. FIND STRENGTH IN GOD
When life throws stones at you and it seems that all
hope is lost, when
circumstances leave you drained, find strength in
times of weakness, and
courage to move on, in God. He has the plan, the
blueprint, and He knows the way.
Is 40:29 says ‘He giveth power to the faint; and to
them that have no
might He increaseth strength’
Don’t accept defeat in the battles of life, because
you feel demoralized.
Believe in yourself, shine your light anyway and see
the huge difference it
2. CHALLENGE YOURSELF
As you chase after the reality of your dreams, it is
important to develop a
clear vision and focus on what you want to achieve,
pegging a time frame
to it. As you set out to be more successful, ask
* What should I be doing with my life right now?
* What have I focused on in the past weeks?
* What I have focused on, is it bringing me joy/
* Do I like the person I have become in the past
* What do I really want to achieve with my life?
* If I continue doing what I am doing, what will my
life look like?
* If I can do one thing differently, what would it be?
Visualize your goals, write them down, have a plan
of action and never
doubt your success.
3. GET YOUR PRIORITIES STRAIGHT
Life is precious and so is time, make the most of it.
Spend the first
moments of everyday with God to get the blue print
for the day. To reach
the World, you must get into the word Josh 1:8.
Spend your time, talents and resources with people and activities that are
meaningful. Stop wasting
time on people and things that add no value or
keep you from moving forward
towards what you want to be or do.
Rise up early, plant seeds into the womb of the
morning and you will begin
to harvest from the break of dawn.
A MAN WHO SPENDS CONSISTENT TIME WITH GOD,
CANNOT BE ORDINARY.
4. BE PASSIONATE AND ENTHUSIASTIC
Your enthusiasm and love for what you do, is what
will make you
successful. Show your passion in everything you
do. Let it show in your
body language, your smile, your voice and let your
eyes sparkle. There is no one, who wasn’t created a genius at
something… so find your place and
dose it with passion.
5. STOP MAKING EXCUSES AND JUST DO IT!
Trust me, the reason why you have not taken that
first step is not
important. What matters most is that you take the
step NOW! Stretch your
comfort zone, push yourself, rise above the sways
and soar like the eagle you are. When you set your mind to do things, God
alligns His resources to
Make it happen NOW, not tomorrow. For tomorrow
is a loser’s excuse!
6. REDUCE YOUR LEARNING CURVE
Why do you have to experience it, when you can
learn from others’
Take what you can apply from the trials and
challenges others have
overcome, then tweak the process to fit in to your
7. YOUR FUTURE IS IN YOUR HANDS
The best way to predict your future, is to create it.
Most people say they don’t know what tomorrow
holds; ‘If you did know,what
would your life look like? What would you like to
do? Where would you live?
Speak your expectations fearlessly into the
atmosphere, the cosmos is waiting to be sent on an errand and to delliver your
Be true to yourself… you deserve the best. Call forth
the YOU, you want
8. TURN STUMBLING BLOCKS TO STEPPING STONES
We have the capacity to create opportunities from
past experiences and
adversity, depending on how we see life (Half full
or half empty) because
there is a ‘good’ in every ‘bad’…. find it!
9. ALIGN YOURSELF WITH ROLE MODELS/MENTORS
One of the best ways to get yourself on track with
what you want to
accomplish, is by having someone who has ‘been
there and done that’. A
mentor will be supportive, offer the benefits of his
or her expertise and knowledge and be willing to listen to you when
you need the support the
I for one, have three Super mentors who have
contributed maximally to my
life thus far; Pastor Nathaniel Bassey, Pastor
Isabella Ogo Uzodike and
Minister Sinach… so find yours!
And when you do, mentor others and help them
achieve their goals. Leave a
10. BE THANKFUL AND EXUDE A POSITIVE ATTITUDE
Believe in yourself and be thankful for everything.
You can have a good
intention and be determined, but without a positive
attitude, success seems
Remember: people will sometimes forget what you
say to them or do for them,
but they will never forget how you made them feel,
in their hearts.
Be careful what you do per time, because someone
may just be drawing
energy, for their own existence, from all you do.
