TOP 5 REFLECTIONS

In 2013, one of my friends from an association I belonged to in University, sent me an email with her top reflections of the year. I was really inspired and decided to do a yearly reflection and honestly, it has helped me analyse, grow, learn and take on the next year on a better path.

2015 was a year where I started implementing most of the things I had learnt in the previous years. I titled it –The Year My Life Changed. Change truly comes to life when we start applying the lessons we’ve acquired. So many interesting things happened this year and I learnt a lot of lessons and met people that have helped to transform my life positively. As a woman of God, I can proudly say that I am truly blessed and highly favoured and God is leading me to His purpose for my life. The one word that kept coming back was- GRATITUDE.

Above all, I now understand that truly, because God is for me, NOTHING can be against me. I can DO anything and everything I set my mind to. I now understand that power of our networks. I understand that love conquers all, and I’ve been learning to show and appreciate people more (very important), sometimes even when they seem unlovable. I understand the power of forgiveness and it’s ability to liberate us and lead us closer to our destinies. 2015, was a blessed year.

 

-Spiritual Growth & Faith

In 2015, I rededicated my life to God and promised Him that I’ll make Him proud. I took spiritual growth more seriously and decided to not just talk about God but intentionally start living out His Word in my life. I moved to Aba from Lagos in January because I needed support with my leg condition and I was a bit disturbed because I was leaving my church home in Lagos (RCCG). There was a reason for moving; God redirected my steps to House on the Rock, Aba for His divine purpose upon my life. I started Finding the Rock Foundation classes, connected with amazing mentors and people that have helped me grow in the faith and with their support, I really started living out my passion and purpose on earth- this year 2015. When we draw closer to God, He draws closer to us!

 

-The Power of Writing Goals & Meeting Great Men

In January 2015, while writing out my goals for the year, I decided to start leaving my comfort zone. Since 2013, after surgery, I’ve been “hiding”, going through a process but also building my muscles by developing myself for the future. One of the things I wrote down was that I would attend seminars organized by Mr. Lanre Olusola, Fela Durotoye, Steve Harris and Jimi Tewe. Previously, I had attended an event by Mr. Lanre in 2012, decided to search for him on social media, then stumbled upon the others and absolutely connected with their message. I didn’t know how I was going to meet them, because my mind told me it was expensive to attend their events and it would be in Lagos anyways. But I desired to attend their events and also meet them. Fast forward to April 2015, I started attending House on the Rock, Aba and during the Mind Power Summit; I met all of them apart from Jimi Tewe (who I met in October 2015 during the Live Your Passion event).

LAIZAKING_PODCAST

 

OMG!

“I feel stuck.”

“Nothing is working.”

“I don’t feel good enough.”

“I’m never going to get this done.”

 

Have you ever experienced such moments in your life? I mean, who hasn’t? Sometimes it feels like nothing is working and you just feel like screaming!, as if that will solve the situation. But honestly, let’s not fake it here. It’s part of human experience to get to those kind of moments when we feel like things to change. If you’re reading this and you’ve never gone through such in your life, then you’re truly not growing.

Some of you already know that I organized an event recently called- Live Your Passion in Aba City, Abia State on Saturday October 17.

The event went really smooth, I learnt so much and from the feedback we’ve gotten so far, lives were definitely transformed through this event and people have already started working towards the paths they truly love.

How to Stop Holding Yourself Back

For a very long time, I was holding myself back from achieving my dreams and letting my voice to be heard. I’m not sure if it was fear, shyness or a mixture of both. It’s a tough and terrible place to be in, especially if you have BIG dreams that keep you awake at night. However now, I understand that what we focus on is very important and can either make or break us. Most people are very indecisive and even when they make a decision; they still allow all sorts of voices to drawn their own unique voice out, then they find themselves right at the spot where they started. Today, I’m here to encourage you and tell you this- stop holding yourself back in life.

Are you struggling with speaking your truth?

Are you stuck in a rut and still compare yourself with others?
