The Power of Persistent

It’s been said, the type of dream or vision you have in life will determine the kind of challenges you face. Little dream always attract little problem, and big dreams also attract bigger obstacles. But, one of the ways to thrive even in the mix of your obstacles is to be a man or woman of persistence.

Always remember, persistent is not about something you do once. It is not about the timing or delay in reaching in your set goals. Rather, persistent is about finishing the race. It is about completion. It is about standing up where others fall. Rising up where others quit. Although, your visions tells you where you are going but, persistent is what enables you to get there through your tireless pursuit. I wish you best and may you achieve all your set goals.

Having A Purpose And Making It Happen

It is one thing to have a dream yet; it is another thing to make it happen. Our world does not recognize how much you have dreamed, or imagined rather; your ability to turn your dream into a reality. In this article or series, I would suggest 7 ways to help you accomplish your purpose in life.

First Series: Your Purpose

The word purpose is a very familiar word that we use daily that’s in school, in business and in other areas of our lives. According to the-free-dictionary:

Purpose can be defined as the reason for which anything is done, created, or exist. For example:
• The purpose of the new resort is to attract more tourist
• The purpose of a car is to enhance our mobility

Therefore, having heard about the word purpose or maybe you came across it somewhere,
what does it mean to you personally?
In my view, the word purpose begins when a man or woman discover who they are, and what they are destiny to be. Meaning…..
• The problems you are called to solve
• The solution you are meant to provide
• Most of all, the values you are adding to humanity thereby making our world a better place….

If purpose is that important, why do we need it?
In my search about why we need purpose, I came across this interesting quote from personalexcellence.co , the author said,
“Having a purpose gives you an entirely new latitude in life. It is like your secret access pass which unlocks benefits like fulfillment, happiness and success – things people spend their entire lives trying to seek.
What is important is to understand things like abundance, success, wealth, fulfillment, etc are the results of discovering and pursuing your purpose – as long as you find and live your purpose fully and truly, everything will fall into place. It is as simple as that.”

You may ask; how do I discover my purpose? Here are few questions to consider:
• What do you like doing?
• What are the things that give you joy or fulfillment whenever you do it?
• For example, even if there’s no financial attachment?
Your ability to answer above questions might be the first step towards discovering your purpose. In summary, having a purpose in life is what makes life to be more meaningful.

A word to ponder as you seek to discover your purpose ― Thomas Merton said:
“If you want to identify me, ask me not where I live, or what I like to eat, or how I comb my hair, but ask me what I am living for, in detail, ask me what I think is keeping me from living fully for the thing I want to live for.”

Finally, what happen after my purpose is discover? The answer to this question leads us to next series YOUR PLANNING/PREPARATION.

Maximizing Your Youthful Age

Youthful age are very important moment where you discover who you are and what you are destiny to be. Is a period of preparation, planning and pursuit of your career, talent and dreams.

Is like a farmer whose vision is to harvest many fruits. First, she has to clear the ground, plant the seed, and then expect the tree grow in order to bear fruit.

The question goes like this: What ground are you clearing as regards to your passion in life? What seed are you sowing that’s, the seed of planning, investing your time, energy, and taking adequate steps to ensure that your dreams becomes a reality?

I believe; it is your investment today as a youth that determine your harvest tomorrow. Why must you maximize your youthful age?

• Because you have the strength require to do anything you want now
• You have the ability to take risk despite the oppositions around you
• It helps you paint picture to your future
• It gives you sense of direction, focus and commitment towards the actualization of your desire goals

Therefore, as you maximize your youthful age, may God gives you the grace and strength you need to achieve your dreams.

Great inventors, world changers, and men of impact were once like you and I while planning, and thinking how to achieve their dreams. But, what is it that set them apart or distinguishes them from us? They appreciate the need of taking small steps towards their career and passion in life.

So, what can you do today towards your career, passion, dream and talent? Don’t be afraid of failing or making mistakes. Most often, it is through mistake that you discover your strength and weakness as well as area to stop doing, start doing and continue doing in order to fulfil your glorious destiny.
