What is that in your hand?

‘What is that in your hand?’

When God called Moses, one of the first questions He asked him was: ‘What is that in your hand?’ Moses was holding his shepherd’s staff – the one he used each day to lead and protect his sheep. But God had a different plan for it – a greater one! He used it to part the Red Sea and lead Israel into the Promised Land. When God asks you, ‘What is that in your hand?’ He wants you to think about your talents, experiences, relationships, education, resources, your mind and your temperament. – By Bob Bass

From the quote above, God just had to show Moses, Moses had all he needed to succeed. So also, I am bringing to your notice today, you have all you need to achieve that your desired goal(s). Understand this, all you have been through up until this time are no accidents, they are by design the exact things you need to push you to where you need to be. Your experiences, talent(s), lessons, trials, triumphs are just to get you in tune for what you have always wanted. But you have to be able to harness all these positively to make them work for you.

It may not seem much what you have but once you can take that big bold step, you will realize you have more than enough. You are equipped to succeed by default, no one is useless, no one is designed to be a failure, no one is destined to be irrelevant, we are all a product of a God that never fails, but we have to be willing to do our part; take the step, test our limits and go against all odds. It may not be easy but like I will always say, it will be worth it.

New day is always a reminder of the fact that you can start afresh any time you choose to, it goes dark and then it is morning, everything starts afresh. It is never late to change, make a choice, choose a path, find a new something worthwhile doing or meet that dream person of yours. Whichever level you think you are, you can always move to the next, but it is by choice, by deliberate attempt to better your yesterday while setting new heights for yourself.

So much depends on the choice you make now going forward. Remember, you have all it takes, don’t doubt yourself like Moses did at first, you are made for something extraordinary and you can do it. Your dreams may be scary, may look impossible but God gave you them for a reason and without a doubt I have strong conviction that you are just what those dreams need to come alive.

Keep going!

​Winning Is A Mentality

Winning Is A Mentality

We all want to win
We all want to be celebrated
Small, big, high and sometimes doing the extraordinary.
But winning doesn’t start with the action itself
It starts from the mindset
Winning is a mentality developed overtime.

Take for instance, a winning team is hard to breakdown because they first and foremost see themselves as winners
But if by a stroke of hardluck they get defeated, if care is not taken they begin to lose or grind out results.
Note, the players didn’t change, the tactics didn’t change, the coach hasn’t lost his tricks, the only problem is that somewhere along the line the players lost their winning mentality.

Life throws so many obstacles at us and often they tend to kill our morale
Tilt our thoughts to accepting being small is being contented
Slowly giving us the illusion that there is a ceiling we can’t go beyond
We begin to make excuses for setbacks and pass on our responsibilities
But that is not how winning is done.

Winning is an habit, it needs to be fed!
You have to keep the winning mentality alive within
You have to remind yourself constantly why you are in this
You can do this, you can win no matter what the odds are!
So long as you keep your mindset focused on winning
You will beat the odds
