Value is more expensive than price🌸🌸🌸

Price can be understood as the money or amount to be paid, in order to get something. Conversely,value implies the utility of worth of the commodity or service for an individual.

But I’m not talking on price and value with relation to goods or services. Rather I would talk about value and price, with respect to US as individuals.

When we talk about value…. worth always comes to mind. Everything we do in life, either adds up to our value as a person or it degrades it. We have as a duty to maintain our personal integrity and value because that’s what defines us and makes us priceless.
However there are alot of things happening around us that hit us down, making us feel we can not achieve that self confidence.

But value in this sense….is not achieved with wealth, rather it’s the value of the mind.

How can one increase his/her value??

1. Spend resource on yourself:

Ok! Here I’m not talking about going shopping, getting new clothes, cars, going out on luxurious vaccations and whatever you need to make you wow….. As important as these things may be, I am talking about spending time and money on developing your mind. Purchasing relevant books that enlightens your mind.

Spending quality time with yourself.

I know it’s important we hang out with friends…but of a truth…there comes a time…when sitting all by yourself and asking yourself a thousand questions no one would have ever asked, will do you a lot more good and make you realise how important you are.

2. Resize your social circle:

Resizing your social circle is a very important factor, if you would want to step up your value. It isn’t so because friends are bad, but because it will help you narrow down your preference. There are over billions of people in the world with different dreams and mindset. You just can’t afford to mix yourself up in the whole. Find those who relate with you at different level. Those who have a clear cut line between pleasure time and get things done time.

3. Remind yourself:

The world has its way of reminding us of how many difficult moments we have to overcome and how difficult it might be to always get what we want. But it’s imperative you tell yourself at all times that you are priceless.

A man will practice what he hears.

Tuesday Motiva-Quote

Let our actions in a day add up to realizing our dreams set before us. Our actions are seeds we sow. And we’ll only reap the benefits of our hardwork “tomorrow”. So whatever you do, it’s being done unto yourself. Act right, you reap right…☝
Stay happy and confident!!

Fighting against all odds

I’ll fight to the very last breath I have…”
We fight odds every single day of our lives. These odds are sometimes thrown at us from without….But I think the greatest odds are those from within.
I grew up hearing that a stab in the back made by an acquaintance is nothing compared to a stab in the face made by those you love.
Odds are anything that stands in your way to getting where you want to be. To some, these odds are habits, I mean…nasty ones, to others, these odds are family. This sounds quite weird but there’s a time unacceptable truth slaps you, right in the face to accept it. To others, these odds are enemies.
At times these odds just come pushing, and pushing you so hard, that you feel the strength you thought you had, is nothing compared to the wasted feeling you get of yourself_The hurts.
And then you cry, till you groan. That feeling of pain sterming right from your heart. “And then you cry not because you are weak…but because you have been strong for too long”
I am currently going through what I’ll call the worst phase of my life. A time where a mix of hard decisions are starring right in my face. A time where I self evaluate myself and realise certain truths, I’ll want to call them lies.
Have you ever been there, when you refuse the reality of things??
I just want to wake up and feel the lines of my life falling into pleasant places. But that’s not what I see now. I’m fighting my odds. So hard, that I loose my motivation to fight.
I write motivational posts….but I have been in situations where my drive and determination that I thought I had, failed me.
Then I’m still left with myself. Just “ME”. Looking at me and myself. I still have to do what I can….even when I can’t do it. I still need to press on…even when I don’t know where I’m going to have such strength to move on….
It is a battle within my life. I’m fighting a fight that requires strength. But I don’t know where I’m going to have that!
What’s my lesson?

I often hear people say don’t cry….be strong….
But I’ll tell you…cry…and cry…out all you’ve got. Cry out the pain, that helpless feeling, that stress, those worries…..Get angry…not at yourself…but at where you are.
For in your anger of where you are will stern the courage you need to fight with for a better you.
There are no odds you can’t defeat….
I say these to myself. I motivate myself
Because I have learnt, that we never stop learning.
As you fight on remember, you are your coach. The victory lies within you…search it and you’ll find it.

Love you all ❤❤❤❤❤

Shine Bright🎇🎇

When the dusk gets darker…..it is a clear indication that the dawn is near.

Shine on through the darkness, the worries, and the confusion because at the end of it all you alone decide how bright you will want your life to be.

When I looked up into the sky this evening…I got an inspiration. The stars in the vast firmament look like randomly placed dizzling crystals…. They are surrounded by the dark cloud, yet they don’t get intimidated to shine on to their maximum.

I wonder where nature got such courage.??

They might have been small yet they grace and adorn the night with such elegance and beauty.

It’s not how much you think you can do….It’s all about consistency in doing what’s right

Don’t go out of your way thinking it might not work….Stay there and keep doing it!!!

Wherever you are, the world beckons on you to fulfill your role in making the world a better place. The reality about life is, the world’s made up of people…..not a person….but it needs you to fulfil what you should because no one else can but you…..That’s how unique you are.

“A living dog is better than a dead lion”. As far as you are alive, there’s hope for you. Just keep believing that you can and you will…

Be the best that you can be.

# you are awesome🌸❤💜💙💚

Do something new🎆

We all have dreams, goals, objectives we have set before us. We all have that dream self employing business we wish to start up. We have drawn knowledge from both schooling and experience. We read books over and over and over again. And at some point, we work. Working what everyone else is working. Sooner or later, comfort doing the usual creeps in. Not long than we can notice, we work and spend. And there, our lives goes in circles and circles.

Time passes, but our acheivement is not propotionate to time passed. Why???…. We need to stop doing the usual. Try out something else. The greatest of people who have achieved are not people who dwelt on a source of income for so long. They are those who understood the principle of adopting various income source to generator more and more of it….

I recently attended a seminar that changed my perception in relation to leadership….!!!  Who is a leader??? “A Leader is someone who takes responsible decisions, transform them into actions to bring about positive change. There’s one thing with change, it attracts. The moment you start doing the extra people will emulate you. 

The great difference between a successful person and someone who’s trying to be successful is that fact of identifying opportunities. Let our dreams not remain dreams, let them become a reality. But as long as we do not do something extraordinary, we remain where we have always being.

Unless we act upon our dreams, they will only remain illusions and fantasies….make your dream life real…

Like the popular addage goes if you want to earn extraordinary income so extraordinary things. 

What therefore is extraordinary?? 

“It is anything done out of the usual”. At this point many will think that what you are doing might not be enough to yield the future you so much desire …..but the greatest of achievers were not those who did not fail for once, but those who never failed trying”

Try and try and try again, till you acheive. There’s no harm trying😊🎆❤

Happy Wednesday 🌸🌸

You are Beautiful (Part II)

Hit by the many waves of life, languishing in tears over loved ones gone, feeling broken due to broken trust, feeling helpless when in need of help…….are the one and one too many despairs and painful moods and feelings we often find ourself in daily. But all these do not amount or cannot be compared to the wonderful AND beautiful person that you are.

You, standing there, though with tears of pain lurking in your eyes, still have the power to make the decision and choice to live.

Lately, a lot has happened to me…. A lot both good and very saddening…. I have lost someone so dear to me. Someone so important in my life….And here I am again, starring into the deep vacuum left in my heart. Truth is, we gain, we loose. But no matter where you find yourself, the ultimate is, you are still standing….right there with an ounce of hope in heart♥. 

So in this season of thanksgiving, I choose not to stare at the confusion mix problems I have lying ahead of me. I choose to stare at the wonderful memories I have.

The creates place of investment is not in your assets. But in yourself. When you invest value into your life, you don’t need someone else’s approval of being the best. You know you are.

When I stumbled on this quote today, I learnt that happiness is not achieved from the outside but from the inside. Letting go, though it seems as the hardest decision to make, is the best. Because sometimes, holding on gives us more and more pains.

Let go of anything that makes you feel less worthy and start cultivating those things that add value to your life. You are beautiful, unique, different and loved.

It all depends on you how you want your Story to be told. Make it worth while.💚💛💜🌸

Be Different!!!

We live in societies where many grew up following already laid down believes and get into the stereotypical way of doing things. And once you find yourself following another course, there’s a problem with you. You’re simply being different.

It doesn’t matter how many people are involved in doing what “everyone does“, it suffices that you stand out different, singled out amongst many.

When I was growing up, I always had the passion to read Mass communication at the University. But I was found “ridiculous” even by my parents…. This sounds kind of awkward because parents are to be our number 1 source of support. But that wasn’t the case for me.

I found myself motivating myself to study what I wanted because there was no one to do so for me. It musn’t be about people!!!. Its not about pleasing people, doing what they want. Its about YOU. What your passion drives at! 

So its OK if you’re staring up that project and everyone’s telling you it makes no sense. To me, it makes more sense beacause everyone else is doing the ordinary but you are doing the extraordinary. Its a gem to be extraordinary🎆

I live in a country where employment upon completion of studies is as rare as water in a desert. The programme I so much desire to study was one hell of a profession which was pretty hard to get a job. It was a risk I took. But I followed my passion. 

Times when I felt the weight of fear on me with no one by my side telling me I did the right thing, I often burst into tears. Crying became the order of the day in my life at that point. Because, I felt standing alone. I never knew then that I was just being different!!!!

 So many thoughts ran through my mind. But I remained firm on my decission. And today, I reap the fruits of being persistent in my course! And chosen to be different.

Its risky to take up risks but it is worth it🌸Wherever we find ourselves, we should build and create. 

Opportunities will never step at your doorpost! You rather make creative steps towards them. 

If you find yourself in a broken situation, you build. You are special and wonderful just the way you are….

Love and cheers🌸💕

 Someone To Remember🌸!!

Life’s a journey and each day, we get to meet people of various socio-cultural backgrounds. One of the most important things I have learnt that exists between humans is “relation”…. And I begin asking myself, “how is my relationship with the people I meet?”.

Then, it gets dawn on me that, everything that has stood the test of time did because someone who’s worthy of trust was involved. Then I ask myself again, “I’m I worthy of someone’s trust?”

We live our lives, yet in the midst of so many people. At sometimes, we find ourself selflessly reaching out to help those in need. Our words, touch, encouragement, visits, sends out thousands of messages that “we care”…

Earlier today, I cross examined my life and asked myself questions on how I have added value to those around  me. We all have values, but its our duty to positively influence those around us…. “But again, why take so much pain to help others…its their live not yours”. Then, I noted:

People will remember you, not for the thousands of possesions you got, or numerous infrastructures you have built or amount of money you posses. But, for the little touch you gave when that person needed someone to hold. For the time you spent beside that person when all others fled. For the Kind words you utter when others  spoke words of mockery. This, is the greatest legacy ever!!!!

 Buildings and possessions and money will one day crumble or we’ll find ourselves lacking. But true act of kindness and love will stand the test of time. No matter how  that passes….people will remember you for the good deeds… Because, such acts are engrafted in the hearts of men.

So, I wanna be rich in my relationship with people…… Give a smile☺ to those in need and lend a helping hand🙋 to those who bleed of pain. There’s so much love in our hearts to share. 

For this great act, the reward seems so small but has an everlasting effect. The smile of thanks and gratitude that rests upon the face of the one you helped, goes such peace and satisfaction…

Nothing should stand as a barrier, limiting us from reaching out to people and being extraordinary in our services of love. Not race, not age, not gender, not nationality, not status!. We are all one, created by an all loving God who knows no discrimination.

I was so inspired today by a little girl I met. She’s five but has taught me the greatest of lessons in human relationship when she told me “.……..I want to help people, but my friends tell me I’m too small, I’d need to grow up, work and save alot before I do that! But I can help without money… Like I helped my friend when she fell!!…”

Happy Thursday 🌸💕💖!!!!

You fall, you rise

​The beauty of life, is not when we live a faultless one, and are always aware of what is to come. It is, when we don’t know what awaits us, yet we rise with so much courage to face it head on.

If we were to know, the happenings in our life time before it did, we wouldn’t realise how much courage we have when it happens. We fall, we make mistakes and at some point we feel rejected because of our thoughts and perceptions of things….

We try to start up something and it seems not going the way it should. The beauty in all these is, when you fall, you rise…
Its not a matter of how many times you get hit and knocked down, but of how many times you rise after each hit. Its not the amount of physical strength that matters, but of mind strength.
I have made mistakes in my life, I have fallen at several points. And sometimes the fall seem so deserving that you think you deserved it for not trying your best! But, your best, is not measured on your success. It is measured by your willingness to pursue what you want against all odds…

Its OK to many and why not all, if you follow the path they have chosen. This is because the majority have. And when you don’t take that path, we often become a subject of mockery. 

Remember there’s a better appraisal when we succeed amidst the knock out, the falls, the mistakes and failures.
