What comes to mind when you see me in your e – mail every Friday?
This guy is consistent?!
You feel I have some super powers, do you?
Here’s an interesting twist: the last four months have not been all sweet on the surface. I’ve had to face trying times and the phenomenal happened as March 2021 was fizzling out! Boom! I unlocked a thing.
Too many times, I’d sit at home and spend quality time dreaming about a couple of my destinations; where I can be intoxicated with all of the sweet things of this life and lose my anxiety forever.
In as much as life wouldn’t seek your permission before confronting you with challenges, submitting yourself to circumstances you cannot control will restrict your perspectives on many issues and by extension, dictate your performance.
All through this phase, the only thing I was seeing was reasons to worry. Worry is a thief cloaked in fear and its only ambition is to limit your impact, cripple your creativity, restrict your effectiveness and suspend your dreams while you struggle to survive.
For a long time, I’d been robbed! Not of the quality time spent reinforcing the pictures of tomorrow in my mind but of the resources I spent carrying the burden of anxiety. Needless burden if I’d asked the right person questions – or let people in to be of help.
But since I broke out of the hog – washed mind frame, it’s just me and my explosive ideas. No undue pressure to perform. No limitations. And this alone has made me set higher trajectories for myself.
In the past few days, instead of the usual stern, sad self that I flee from when I sit to dream, it occurred to me that I now dream from a place of hope and a renewed energy to do the very basic things that fill my heart with joy– a productive mindset.
Your future self would only thrive if you keep your purpose warm and intelligence aglow. And the good thing is that you can do it.
