Have you ever sat down to think about the things you think about? Do you know that what you see is what you saw? Wait, don’t be confused yet. I heard the phrase what you see is what you saw in a movie, Tijuana Jackson: Purpose Over Prison. I immediately began to sing this popular TikTok song, I see, I saw, lol. I didn’t give much thought to the phrase until later that evening. The movie that looked boring from the beginning to my surprise, began to make sense to me.

I was on the bus traveling back to Lagos and I could not help but ask myself, are there ways to keep your hope alive? I was tired and frustrated, partly because the bus I took was unnecessarily noisy which reminded me of the fact that I should have boarded a car instead. Another reason is that people think I am rich but I do not even have the money they are talking about. I mean, I took a bus instead of a car because I was on a budget. Yes, there was or should I say there is hope, but it looks like everything is out to just kill the hope.

Limiting beliefs explains why you don’t have to be behind bars to be in prison. If I would describe the feeling I got when I heard the statement ‘you don’t have to be behind bars to be in prison’, I would just shout yeeeessshhhh because it felt like someone had slapped me. The statement got me thinking so hard and led me to find out that I had been a prisoner for quite a while. Hey fellow prisoner, I know I’m not alone so shout God forbid as loud as you can but that does not change the fact that we are together. It is what it is darling.

I bring you words of encouragement after months of battling discouragement myself!
I know I owe you an explanation of where I went. A lot of things happened which I might not be able to share now but instead, I’ll apologize. I’m sorry. If you subscribed to my newsletter then you should have gotten my apology note. If you’re not, do well to subscribe now. I’ll share more stuff and it might be limited to my email list or they get to read it first.

Do you know how to deal with disappointment? Have you ever experienced disappointment? Would it be weird if I said disappointment is a normal thing to experience as long as there are expectations? If there’s one thing that is certain that a person would experience before death no matter how good life is to the person, I’ll say it’s disappointment. This could happen in several ways and at different phases of a person’s life.

Do you know that to change your life, you also need to change your environment?

This post is inspired by the fact that many people are willing to have a better life. In fairness to them, they try so hard but all their efforts are frustrated. They end up feeling like losers. Nobody deserves to feel that way. Not even when you are trying. What then could be the problem? Could they be doing something wrong?

It is painful that we find it very easy to lose our uniqueness and originality in a bid to find acceptance. Often time, we can’t take a stand outside what other people think because we are scared of losing them. Worse still, we go all the way to change what we look like, how we talk, how we dress, how we think to suit what other people think it should look like. It’s painful to watch this happen.

Wondering how to increase your level of productivity? I won’t even lie, it has not been easy. I’ve heard people say that blogging is easy because I publish three times a week. So many messages come in from people telling me that I must really have the passion and that’s why I’m really consistent. While some ask if I’m a robot, others ask if I use something to induce my productivity. Let me not deceive you, passion is not enough to keep you consistent. Some went as far as asking me if I’m chasing anything or if anything is chasing me. Lol… Nothing is chasing me, it was just a decision I made to show up for you every time that I need to show up.

This month, we are on a journey to fully crushing procrastination.

Hello there, happy new month. I’m glad you have journeyed with me for three months. Thank you.

Please don’t stop.

We are taking the bull by the horn and smashing our goals this month, no holding back. Do I have a witness? To make the most of the post, you will need to read to the end. If you ever find a need to close this blog post at any point, then you need it more. I love the third point since it has worked for me.

The importance of goal setting cannot be overemphasized. I know that I told you that you can do anything so far you set your mind to it but let me also tell you that you might not be able to do much if you don’t set goals. If you ever want to live the life of your dreams, goal setting is one of the most powerful ways you can achieve that. You thought I would just leave you with the thought of how you can do anything you set your mind to? No, my dear.
