Love Is Not Enough!

Love is not enough! Whenever I say this to people, it stirs up so much controversy. People look at me like "Are you crazy?" And my response is always the same "NOPE". I always refer to all the marriages that have gone wrong and are still going wrong and if you ask them all, they were all once in "Love". The truth is that given the right circumstances, you can fall in "Love" with just anybody.... I am glad that Rick Warren! has also said this. I am listening to this for the first time, because a friend sent it to me yesterday. However I have had my own views on love for the past 6 years. I am really getting wiser ): Listen and be informed...

Entrepreneur Minds....

If you read, this blog constantly, I am guessing you have learnt a lot from our 'Entrepreneur Minds' tabs. Your first time here? Then search our previous posts, I am sure you will get a thing or two.

Today I am sharing with you, a few decisions that have helped me in the past and which I plan to implement for my business in the next couple months. Now the first is:

1. Have a Date/Plan: A lot of people just say plan, but I say work with a date.
 Now I have got 2 dates in mind. The first is 2018 which I plan to launch the international bit of my business and the next is 2020 which I hope to launch the local aspect of my business. How have these dates helped? It has helped me focus. Focus both time, resource and targets. It's helping me be more observant and to subtly spot out my mentors. Sound simple?

2)  The second bit is prioritize: Now this year I am cutting back on the holidays I plan to have. Rather I am going to work for free in the chosen sector I plan to become an entrepreneur. I am giving my time to learning and being taught. Its going to be a hard one but the end is going to be rewarding.

3) Speak: The first mentor I got was a client I spoke to when I offered financial advice in the financial services. Because I am so consumed by my plans, casually as we spoke about her finances, I mentioned my plans and she gave me information I previously didnt have access to free of charge and she's been helpful since then. Over Christmas I always shared my plans with my family and I guess my dad did not have a choice at some point he goes how can I be of help? "And I go whoop! I told him I  needed a property in a particular location". You never know where help could come from or the person who has the information or connection you earnestly desire. Now I always say 'Speak' but be sensible as you speak. Make sure you are speaking to the right people not naysayers.

Finally my greatest strength and determination comes from Prayer!

Cheers to your dreams coming through!

Write it down!

Have you been waiting on God this year, searching his word,  listening out for his voice in worship and as you live your life day to day? Then He has definitely spoken a word or two to you. Don't forget to write it down. I have mine on post it notes on my fridge and it was not just a constant reminder for me but it was also a blessing to most people who had the privilege of visiting my place last year.

So the word for you today is write it down, so that you can always refer back to it.

And the LORD answered me: “Write the vision; make it plain on tablets, so he may run who reads it.(Habakkuk 2;2 ESV)

Today's Thoughts...

Dream.. Pray... Plan.... & then get to work.

You gotta get moving...

True success does not just happen..

Trust your struggle!

Have a fabulous weekend guys!

Joke of the day- The issue of Age

I cant believe its almost three weeks into 2017 already! Wow it just seemed like yesterday when I had my entire family around for the Christmas holiday in my tiny flat and we were taking turns on when to use the bathroom hahahaha.

Going back to those memories I was looking at a selfie I took with my brothers and the conversation that ensued with that photo got me cracking with laughter today. Now I have got 2 brothers and I am the oldest of the 2. Both of them as well as both parents are all bespectacled.  It was so funny that the TV comes on and all of them one by one pick up their glasses which by the way is all littered all over the coffee table. Now I photobomb their selfie session and the picture turns out really nice. My youngest brother as he goes through the pics on his phone goes "Sis are you not just lucky"? At your AGE, you are not bespectacled, you have no dental issues(he's got like 3 fillings lol, and they all have one dental issue or the other), you are just so healthy. When he said that he struck a nerve and I am like "wait! wait! wait!!! scratch that, what do you mean by AGE, like how old am I??? Now everyone is laughing hysterically and he's trying to explain what he means/take back his comment but boy its already out there. hahaha

Now what is this thing about age? I was speaking to a group of young individuals who cant wait to grow up and every adult I know wonders why we were all in a hurry to grow up! Phew life...... Enjoy every season.

Enjoy the rest of the week guys... Remember to live purposefully....

How do you start your morning? Do you daily renew your mind with the word?(Rm 12: 2)

Be Teachable!

Sometimes there is a thin line between pride and folly. Regardless of which it might be, this year may we all be teachable! Amen!

‘That the LORD…may show us the way in which we should walk and the thing we should do.’

Jeremiah 42:3

Twelve bees were placed in a jar in a darkened room. A light was beamed onto the bottom of the jar, and then the lid removed. Instinctively, the bees flew towards the light and couldn’t escape. So they died trying to buzz their way through the bottom of the jar. Next the researchers took twelve common houseflies and repeated the experiment. Within seconds the flies had found their way out of the jar. Now, bees are more intelligent than flies and their survival instincts are better. Yet it was those very instincts that doomed the bees. There’s a lesson here. You may be very intelligent, yet your preconceived notions can doom you to failure in life. Assumptions, rigidity, and force of habit can cause you to keep doing things that don’t work and make no sense. Dr James Dobson says: ‘Until 1992 I wrote books with pencils and yellow pads. I did that for years after word processors were available. The twentieth century was almost over before I decided to join it.’ Are you afraid to abandon an old belief system, or learn a new skill, or tackle a new project? When you’re finished learning, you’re finished! The only real limitations are those we place on ourselves by refusing to learn. ‘Give instruction to a wise man, and he will be still wiser; teach a just man, and he will increase in learning’ (Proverbs 9:9 NKJV). ‘The heart of the prudent acquires knowledge, and the ear of the wise seeks knowledge’ (Proverbs 18:15 NKJV). Don’t let your fears and preconceived ideas keep you from growing; be teachable.

Dealing with the devil

If you are in need of a devotional to read in 2017, I suggest you try UCBs word for today. I have been reading it for over 12 years and I can say that I have been so blessed. I hope the message below blesses you as it blessed me. Its a series, so if you need to read the rest, click on the link.

‘Stay alert! Watch out for your great enemy, the devil.’

1 Peter 5:8

When Jesus fought the devil in the wilderness, Satan never landed a single punch. Three times Jesus told him, ‘It is written’ (Matthew 4:4, 7, 10 NKJV). And with those three solid right hooks, Satan went down and couldn’t get up. Let’s look at each of the three temptations. ‘If you are the Son of God, tell these stones to become loaves of bread’ (v. 3 NLT). Note Satan’s twofold attack: 1) ‘If you are the Son of God.’ Satan will make you doubt your salvation, your Saviour, and your righteous standing before God (see 2 Corinthians 5:21). He’ll remind you of all your flaws and failures. He’ll tell you, ‘The Christian life is too hard; give up!’ That’s a lie; don’t believe him. Yes, the Holy Spirit will point out your character defects so you can overcome them. But you’re not saved by your own goodness. ‘By grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God’ (Ephesians 2:8 NKJV). 2) ‘Change these stones into loaves of bread.’ Forty days of fasting had left Jesus famished. His stomach was empty, so Satan began with the topic of bread. Where are you empty? Are you hungry for attention, craving success, and longing for intimacy? You must be aware of your weak spots and bring them to God before Satan brings them to you and says, ‘Meet your own needs. Take matters into your own hands. Leave God out of the picture.’ No, if you could live the Christian life without God, you wouldn’t need Him! It’s the life that’s totally dependent on God that defeats Satan’s strategies every time.

Love, Giving, & Simplicity...

Love is about giving and sharing. Its not in the gift but in the thought behind the actual gift, The feeling of being thought of and having that one gift chosen just for me. And what better time to show such love than Christmas which is based on Gods gift to humanity. I received some really wonderful presents but I will just share this lovely porcelain ware that has my initial engraved on it. It looks prettier than the pic actually depicts. I always say... The simple things in life....

Another Start!

At the beginning of a new year, people tend to make resolutions concerning different things. I wont go into how many of these resolutions are kept because I consider that topic quite boring. I consider it really unwise though to wait for the beginning of the year to make decisions which are aimed at improving our lives/ relationships. Rather than make daunting decisions, why not take it one day at a time?

Each day, decide to give life your best shot. Doing this starts with seeking help from the right source-the Holy Spirit. Some may ask how? The bible says I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength (Phil 4;13).  If you are willing to make Jesus centre of all you do this year, you will experience a supernatural anointing that will take you from ordinary to the extra ordinary.

This year, decide to follow the leading of the Holy Spirit and there's only one path He can lead you which is a secure place. The bible says He has made a wide path for my feet to keep them from slipping (Ps 18: 36).  A lot is going to happen this year but they that know their God will be strong and do exploits (Dan 11:32)

I wish everyone a BLESSED 2017....
May your dreams come through and 
May you enjoy Peace that surpasses understanding,
As you grow in the knowledge of God.

I also hope in 2017, you are also able to get so much inspiration from this blog. Thanks to all my loyal readers, I consider it a privilege to be a source of inspiration...
