The existence of your individuality, coupled with your successful transition into 2007 is the maximum prove of God’s care and love for you. God has a meaning for your life, purposes for your living, but you have a dream to feel fulfill. You can reciprocate his love by becoming the man you more created for. You need to make the most out of your life despite the mistakes of the past. “No matter what a make past may have been, his future is still spotless, where there’s no faith in the future, there’s no power in the present” John. R. Rice.
In this discourse I’ll show you seven major things you may need to consider in other to make it if by 2008…… let’s get started.
YOUR MIND: Your mind is the greatest workshop in the world. It is the lab where all experiments are carried-out, every matter on the face of planet earth, first existed in the mind of somebody before it was translated into its physical reality. Before God created man and the world, he first created them in his mind” whatever the mind can conceive and believe, that it can achieve” achievements are by –product of mind-concievements mixed with belief. To succeed this year you need to train you mind towards the positive and it has to see things differently. What you allow into your mind, is more important than what you allow into your stomach and that’s exactly what you’ll become. Your mind is the most potent/powerful tool you need to become anything in life. You can’t totally control your mind but you can hand over to it plans/ideas which you want, transformed into reality. To be successful, is to have a positive filled mind with desire, imagination, plans, and ideas mixed with faith.
YOUR THOUGHTS: Our lives are dependent upon our thoughts” the way a man is, is the way he thinks” you can never grow above your thoughts. Thoughts are things, if you think you can’t, and then you never can. If you think something is your problem, then it will forever be your problem, until you change that thought. Thoughts crystallizes into imaginations given adequate attention, you build into them power, far more powerful than they originally possess conversely. If you give attention to negative and problematic thoughts, you give them more power that you may not overcome refuse to be limited. Avoid words like “I can’t”, “ it’s not possible”, “ I don’t think I can make it” these words shut up the reasoning faculty of the brain and sets limitations for oneself. “ those who can’t think, can’t say thank you, those who can’t say thank you, can’t think”. Think of God’s goodness, His blessings and thank him for it. Smile always remember nobody is better than you.
YOUR ATTITUDE: Do you wonder why you can’t get along with others? Given a chance how will people class you attitude? Your attitude is more than anything else in life, will determine your altitude, everything can take you to the top but only a good attitude with guarantee your sustainability. Attitude is your approach towards someone or something that you do that shows what you think about them. Success is not meant for the high and might. Attitude is all that’s matters, if you have an attitude problem towards riches /success/money, and then they’ll have a problem coming toward you. How do you approach certain issues that confront you daily? Think! You’ll find the answers within yourself.
YOUR EMOTIONS: Emotions is the part of your character which consists of feelings. Feelings which illicit response to the circumstances you face daily. This response is a function of how your mind works. If you can handle your emotions, you will have the stability to carry on with all that you need in life. Success is not a gift, it’s a choice, it’s not the things that faces you that matters, but how you choose to response to them. Success does not sit on a rocking chair, it sits on a stable throne when your emotions are not right the product is instability, when you are not stable you can’t be able. This explains why you failed last year-instability. Wrong emotions will make you loose your crown. Your throne and even your place of history in life, I want to challenge you to guide your emotions. Build it and allow the spirit of the lord to help you.
YOUR CHARACTER: Character is all the qualities and features that make a person different from others. What do people know you for? What do they see you as? Your character is as important to you as fuel is important to cars. You need character to move on successfully in life. If people know they can trust you they will always come to you, if people know they could count on you they will always put you forward. Character is all that you need, it's your spokesman, your representative and your un-seen marketer anywhere, anytime. To have character is to behave wisely and acceptably. Character is like a charm it attracts...thriving to build a character worthy of emulation by year 2008 is commendable; you are your best man.
YOUR ASSOCIATES: “Birds of a feather, flock together “or iron sharpened iron, so does a man influence the values of his friend” one decision that has brought me tremendous success is my courage to shun certain
Companions it’s a very hard one, but its one thing you must do it you want to succeed in life.” Anything that doesn’t add to you inevitably subtracts from you. Who can you say your friends are? What are their values? Do you fell enlighten when you are around them? It’s not your accomplishments that will make you great but who you choose to surround yourself with. Successful people choose friends diligently. Note; its easier for someone to pull them up. Join the right company. Joshua had Moses, Elisha had Elijah. Find a mentor you need one.
YOUR WORDS: What we speak to an overflow of what we have at heart. What we have in heart, is what we have been thinking. To speak right, you must think rightly. With words you can build or destroy your destiny, the earth and everything in it came into existence by words. Words are powerful the way you speak is a reflection of your personality. You couldn’t get that job, contract, position because, when you were speaking, it was understood that you were not fit for challenge. Your words are you. A man who can speak in a way that interests the other person is a successful man. This individual will be welcomed anywhere, anyday, anytime:- look at great speakers Chris Oyakhilome, Matthew Oshimolowo, Ugochukwu Unachukwu. Learn to speak well and positively.
GET SPIRITUAL: In a sketch titled “THE CHILDREN OF THE KING” of which I usually play “THE PRINCE” I and the princess where banished from the land, for an offence committed which was never mentioned in the play. After sets, we’re always asked” what did the prince and princess do? Reply “anything that you think is bad or that your country refrains you from doing. Today, some countries permit, same sex marriage, while others forbid it. What holds for you, may not hold for me. I can’t decide for you. But if you sure know your God or god, cling to him tightly, and obey his laws, you will need him to scale the hurdles of 2007. but as for me I know my God; my God is as strong as Mount Zion immovable ….. Stay fit.
