Every time I pass through a particular highway, the caption on a particular billboard greets me. It continues to reach out to me every day I use that route. And that caption is the title of this post: What is the size of your dream? I consider this caption as a motivation for what I have set before me. Whenever I see it, I reflect on the things I am doing to achieve my dreams; the things I have done right and the things I am…Continue Reading “What is the Size of Your Dream?”

While I was researching for a seminar I was hoping to give about last year, I came across this very useful infographic. Success is something very vital to we humans. We crave for it desperately and in so doing, sometimes, we miss the point of wanting it that we go out of our way doing what we feel is good. Sometimes even when it’s obvious to us it’s a bad move to make, we convince ourselves that the end justifies the means. But really does…Continue Reading “The Successful vs. The Unsuccessful (Infographic)”

Sometimes I think about my life and how far God has brought me through and indeed it has been quite some journey. I remember the first time I set my eyes on a computer – early 1998 while at secondary school. My heart was set out on studying Pharmacy but that very day, something ticked in my insides and that event triggered the outcome of what I am today. That month, my school had just got new computers and setup the school’s Computer Room. My class…Continue Reading “Flashback on Me”

Whenever the year starts running out, I’m faced with a phobia. I don’t know if there is a name for the phobia yet. It is the fear of self-evaluation. One thing I understand is that people (not only myself) don’t like evaluation, forgetting always that assessments are the magnifying glass through which we see how much progress we have made. I read through a weekly newsletter I get from my Church, usually through my General Overseer’s Office. Pastor Abina, the General Overseer of GOFAMINT tries…Continue Reading “Brace Up”

I came across a post which was dated about 20 years ago. And like the blog author said, it is “…amazing that 20 years later — …most leaders in most organizations face precisely the same set of worries and push-backs today.” I hope that by reading this post you will figure out what you need to do to change, what is holding you back to change, what sentiments you need to change and how much you have been missing on change. Read on. We’ve never…Continue Reading “50 Reasons Why We Cannot Change”

THE DIVIDERS “A forward man soweth strife: and a whisperer separateth chief friends.” – Proverbs 16:28; The Bible Dividers are represented by the division sign ÷ or /. When dividers show up in one’s life, expect trouble, chaos and confusion. Dividers exist for one purpose: to fracture or sever your existing relationship. If you have a relationship with an additioner or a multiplier which has blessed your life, a divider can rupture the relationship. If you have an issue with a friend, a divider may…Continue Reading “Relationship Mathematics (Part 4)”

THE SUBTRACTORS And the Sabeans fell upon them, and took them away; yea, they have slain the servants with the edge of the sword; and I only am escaped alone to tell thee – Job 1:15; The Bible Satan went to God to make a request to attack Job. Isn’t it surprising that Satan did not appear physically to attack Job neither did he send a demon but Job’s possessions were attacked by people? People who were ‘inspired’ by the devil. The third attack also…Continue Reading “Relationship Mathematics (Part 3)”

THE MULTIPLIERS For it was little which thou hadst before I came, and it is now increased unto a multitude; and the LORD hath blessed thee since my coming: and now when shall I provide for mine own house also? – The Bible; Genesis 30: 30 The phrase “Midas Touch” came from the story of King Midas, whose touch turns everything to gold. Do you know of people with such ability to multiply whatever comes their way? Multipliers are represented by the “x” symbol as…Continue Reading “Relationship Mathematics (Part 2)”

There are blessings that money cannot buy, one of such blessings is that of a good friend. In relationship mathematics, there are four categories of people – Additioners, Multipliers, Subtractors and Dividers. You have probably met them already, you belong to one or more of these categories. Sometimes people move between one category to another, depending on the situation or people involved, such that someone that is in the negative category can move over to the positive one or vice versa. Let us consider the…Continue Reading “Relationship Mathematics (Part 1)”

Before you skip to the next line, don’t believe you’re going to find some tidbit about the magic of living a good lifestyle ‘cos this doesn’t happen overnight. And I am also not telling you that this does not happen at all. The truth is, it does happen but like everything in life, you have to work for it. One mistake that people make is that they try as much as possible to put in every energy they have into what they do hoping that it is…Continue Reading “The Good Lifestyle”
