Your Talent, Your Champions

In the race of destiny, your education can only take you to certain level but, it is your talent that makes you stand out in any chosen field. Always remember, everything you ever need to emerge as a champion is already in you. All you need is, look inward and discover them. Consider the following people who turn their talent plus into a champion:

Using his hand
Michael Jordan emerge as a star using his hands (basket ball)
Using their legs
The world most noted best players such as Ronaldo and Messi utilize their legs (football)
Through their mouth
Great musicians like R. Kelly and many others make use of their voice to become a champion
Using their brain
Bill Gates and many other world inventors make use of their brain thereby adding value to humanity

Are you aspiring to be a champion? What is your talent like? If you can’t use your brain, use your voice. If you can’t use your voice, use your hand. If you can’t use your hand, use your leg. If you can’t use your leg, just take step and keep moving until you achieve your dreams. Although, there is always a little beginning but don’t give up until you become a champion.

How do you know your talent or passion?
In his book, “Talent Is Not Enough” John Maxwell suggests the following ways to discover your talent:
• What do you dream about?
• What do you cry about?
• What do you sing about?

In addition, what are those things that bring fulfillment to you when you do them? What are the things you freely do even if there is no financial attachment?
According to John Maxwell, your answer to above questions can help you discover your passion and talent. Therefore, if you already have a talent keep on trying until you succeed. But if you don’t, never give up hope until you discover yours. Have a blessed day.

Winning By Starting

Winning in life begin by taking step. And every step you take gets you closer to your dreams. So, don’t allow procrastination to take the place of your manifestation. You may never know what you can do until you take step. Always remember as Peter A. Cohen advice “There is no one giant step that does it. It’s a lot of little steps”
I came across this inspiring article “Winning By Starting” written by David Abioye. He wrote:
• Starting the journey is where the power of winning lies.
• No one ever wins unless he starts.
• It will be a day dream to ever think of winning without starting.
• Join the race if you ever desire to win.
• Start if you ever think of finishing
• You necessarily have to be in a body if you want to end as head.
• A major syndrome that plagues the youth is the feeling that ‘there is time’.
• But there is really no time for anything.
• The earlier you start whatever you want to do the greater the opportunity you have to win.
• Wake up to responsibility and start your journey now!

Understanding The Season You Are In

Life is about seasonal. Your ability to identify the season you are in gives you the opportunity to know what to do per time, when to do it, and how to go about doing it.

I believe every season whether personal or professional has its own timing. If you miss your time, you have to wait for the next season.

For example, Premier League has its season but any club that fail to prepare for that particular season might miss the triumph, and other benefits attached to it. Also, when a student misses admission process he/she has to wait for the next academic year.
The same apply to our personal life, dream and purpose etc. There is a time for dreaming, preparing, planning, setting goals, and yet another season for taking steps to ensure you accomplish all your desire goals.

• Dreaming stage: It is a discovery stage that’s, seeking to discover your purpose in life. The problem you want to solve. The value you want to add to people’s lives.
• Preparing and planning stage: Once you discovered or defined your purpose, then plan how to accomplish it.
• Setting goals: Break your goals into short and long term. Some can be achieve weekly, monthly, quarterly and yearly.
• Take step: Regardless of how much you dreamed or planned, without taking step your dream will turn to a day dream so, take step…

Here’s the question:
• What season are you currently?
• What are you doing about it?
• What is stopping you from doing it?
• And what must you do to ensure you accomplish your set goals?

The Size Of Your Dream

The size of your dream will determine the type of challenges you face. Little dream attract little problems. And the bigger your dreams the bigger the challenges you face. So, all you need is persistent. Persistent to keep trying..to stay focus.. and never give up… The reason is that “Persistent people begin their success where others end in failure”

Face Your Fear

Most often, one of the key reasons why many have not pursued their dreams is nothing but fear. Fear of unknown, fear of I can’t, fear of what will happen, yet they haven’t try…. But how do you overcome this fear as Pope John XXIII quote:

“Consult not your fears but your hopes and your dreams. Think not about your frustrations, but about your unfulfilled potential. Concern yourself not with what you tried and failed in, but with what it is still possible for you to do.”

Using Small to DO Great

The key foundation to greatness begins with small things,
small plan, small thought & small steps.

Therefore, do not despise the days of small beginning

It is your small beginning today that guarantees your extraordinary result tomorrow.

I believe small steps are far better than big plans without action, and big ideas but full of procrastination.

The benefits of taking small steps

  • It gives you the opportunity to try big things
  • To discover your strength and your weakness
  • To overcome the spirit of procrastination
  • Most of all, it brings you out of your comfort zone and put you into your desire zone

Let’s take a look at Bill Gate – Early Life

He had an early interest in software and began programming computers at the age of thirteen. In 1973, he became a student of Hardvard, where he wrote a version of the programming language BASIC for the MITS Altair microcomputer. Today, what started as a small programming has turn him a global leader and a world changer..

Always remember, it is your small step today that give birth to your great future tomorrow

So, what can you do today regarding that one thing – your passion, your dreams or vision? What steps can you take today in order to get closer to your dreams?

The Power of Decision

Decisions are powerful in life

Decision on what to do, where to go,
And career to chose…

All of this decision influences your thought,

Your actions, your believe and your lifestyle.

So, don’t be too quick to make decision!

It is the key determining factor towards
actualization of your dreams and career.

That’s why your destiny tells you where you are going

It is your daily decisions that determine how you get there.

If decision is that important, how then do I make right decision?

You make right decision with right information, asking right question,
Making right inquiries before taking any steps in all aspect of your life.

Most often, little mistakes we make today is as a result of our poor information.

Poor information only generates poor result. Right information guarantees right result.

Therefore, make your decision wisely because it guarantees the fulfilment of your destiny.
