We do not get to choose how we start out in life. We do not get to choose the day we are born or the family we are born into, what we are named at birth, what country we are born in, and we do not get to choose our ancestry. All these things are predetermined by a higher power. By the time you are old enough to start making decisions for yourself, a lot of things in your life are already in place. It’s important, therefore, that you focus on the future, the only thing that you can change.” ― Idowu Koyenikan,
You have the power to shape your life the way you want it to be. Every thought, every word, every action guides you with a purpose. And that purpose is to fulfil your destiny. Some may say you’re just a dreamer. But everything imagined began with a dream. ~Amaka Nkosazana
Be the celebrators, celebrate! Already there is too much—the flowers have bloomed, the birds are singing, the sun is there in the sky—celebrate it! You are breathing and you are alive and you have consciousness, celebrate it!”
My rule of thumb is, if you haven’t used it in the past six months, then you don’t need it,. However, when we moved last September, there were a lot of stuff we had to give away because there was not enough space in our new place to fit everything we had accumulated over the past few years. It was difficult sorting and resorting and deciding what to keep and what to give away. However, enormous the lot seemed, trust me, it was nothing compared to the stuff I had to wade through before leaving The Bahamas six years ago This time around there we very few things that I hadn’t used in six months but there were lots of stuff I had bought for those special occasions, that only came out on those “special occasions!”
There is a lie that acts like a virus within the mind of humanity. And that lie is, ‘There’s not enough good to go around. There’s lack and there’s limitation and there’s just not enough.’
The truth is that there’s more than enough good to go around. There is more than enough creative ideas. There is more than enough power. There is more than enough love. There’s more than enough joy. All of this begins to come through a mind that is aware of its own infinite nature.
There is enough for everyone. If you believe it, if you can see it, if you act from it, it will show up for you. That’s the truth.” ~Michael Beckwith
“All successful people men and women are big dreamers. They imagine what their future could be, ideal in every respect, and then they work every day toward their distant vision, that goal or purpose.” ~Brian Tracy
Success is ritualistic. The best way to make big changes in your life is through a series of little changes to your daily ritual. Many people make the mistake of trying to do everything at once, making huge changes in their lives all at once only to be disappointed when they burn out mid-flight. Orpah didn’t become a brand overnight, it took Usain Bolt many many wins to become a world champion overnight. They both did small acts, created small rituals for themselves to help them to get to where they wanted to be. Top of their field!
