The essence of true living is the fulfillment of one's dream.
Every human is designed and assigned a purpose which becomes a burning desire to be accomplished as a dream. Jesus as the son of man lived to fulfill the detail of His assignment. There is that thing calling for expression in every human. We all have dreams waiting for manifestation.
The brief of the story of Daniel Craig, aka James Bond got my attention. He was said to have slept on park benches in London. This same man now has several critically acclaimed movies that thrilled the world on his resume. The interesting thing to recall about him from his story was that this 007 actor waited tables and slept on park benches early in his career as an actor in order to fulfill his dream. This reminds me of an adage that says, “When there is life there is hope.” And some have also said it should be when there is hope there is life. Whichever angle you look at it, the key factor there for living is HOPE. Living life needs a bedrock of hope. Hope keeps a man going in life. Whatever dream it is that is daring, hope tells us of the expectation of its reality as we pursue with faith. True living starts from pursuing our dreams. The regular life of going to school, graduate, get a job and then get married seems so ordinary because everybody of age does that as a right of passage. But one thing that makes a difference is living our dream, bringing out the potentials, solving problems God created us to solve on the planet earth. Until we start living our dreams the essence of true living is yet to be unraveled.
Present challenges must not stop you. Your eyes must be on your dream and the energy channeled to bring it into reality. That is what you are created for. It is beyond just climbing up a ladder and getting promoted or making many profit in seven digits but with all these put together the purpose is in the dream being fulfilled. Our great fulfilment will definitely come when our dreams are fulfilled because it shows we have lived full and are ready to die empty, leaving behind books, music, movie script, inventions to our world . True living is living out your dream. Start small and make it progressive. Fulfil your calling, fulfil your mission before you leave the earth. Fight against all odds and put in your best to transmute that dream into reality.
Many sportsmen train in the gyms but only few become champions. Not all that went to school are successful in the real world, hence, it’s not all about the training ground but about a desire to break new ground and writing your name in gold. The burning desire to be the best and number one becomes a vision, a dream that makes an ordinary sportsman go all out to make history and win a gold medal to become a Champion. Your path to success starts from that burning desire, a dream or a vision. Pursue it and I will see you at the top.
“Champions aren’t made in the gyms. Champions are made from something they have deep inside them – a desire, a dream, a vision.” – Muhammad Ali
Character is the major force to sustain your success story. A disciplined man is a man of character, being consistent is a character, delayed gratification is a character, integrity is also a character and being hardworking is a character as well, so, all these qualities and more make a solid character that will build and sustain a success story. Therefore, character is always your choice, and people of character do what is right regardless the situation and while your circumstances are beyond your control, your character is not. Moreover, character is developed through experience of trial and suffering through which the soul can be strengthened, vision cleared, ambition inspired and success achieved. Consequently, developing strong character is certainly the most important to make sure you don’t make the least of your success story. To climb the ladder of success through years of hard work and discipline can be ruined by a compromise on character, therefore, stay strong all the way.
“It takes 20 years to build a reputation and five minutes to ruin it. If you think about that, you’ll do things differently.” ~ Warren Buffett~
Both the rich and the poor are given equal time of 24 hours a day to maximise their potentials. Time is a common denominator but how you use it is what determines what you make out of it. The clock keeps ticking, telling you that time waits for no one. Time gives us all equal space but you are the one who determines what you input in the space of time. What ever you set to do, you must make time for it because you will not have a reserved time if don’t make it out for yourself. Now is the time to make out time to plan how, why, when that project must be executed. Time management is a major tool to your success, so work on it.
“You will never find time for anything. You must make it.” – Charles Buxton
Create time for what you love, spend time doing what will unleash your potential.
Reset Your Mind: Change your thinking, change your life and change your world.
I am a Writer, Song writer, Song minister, Teacher of the Word of God, Pastor and Entrepreneur.
My passion is to influence people’s way of thinking in order to help them succeed in life.
A burning desire to inspire young people to train their minds and harness their talents to become successful in life and achieve that at their youthful age by consciously taking advantage of the power of their minds in achieving success in any endeavour in life and applying it to the utmost in getting results in any facet of life is the core of my life assignment.
The world needs intelligent, courageous, dogged, godly, well behaved, skilled young leaders with integrity and great values who will lead movements that will lead by examples the morals we want to see in our societies, the lifestyle we want to see in our cultures, the heart of integrity and prudence we desire in businesses, the resilience and courage of following up on dreams, the capacity and character to lead and practice of good governance, and the love, empathy and prosperity to care for the needy and the poor in our societies to make the world a better place.
There are parts of the world, especially in Africa where I come from where poverty is just like a birth right owing to poor governance, corruption, lack of vision and lack of political will from bad leadership. This trend has been prolonged and has caused set back to the development of the continent. Hence, there is a need to get the attention of the younger generation who had been poisoned with the venom of corruption and bad leadership that is self centred and not people centred to be salvaged from this mindset and the culture that deepens underdevelopment and increases poverty, so that Africa can become a better place.
Consequently, this can only be achieved when there is mind reset, first among the young ones who have seen what the older ones have done over the years that has kept the continent behind economically, politically and technologically. Moreover, there are gifted individuals in Africa who have performed so well in the global world such as Alhaji Aliko Dangote, Mike Adenuga, Folorunsho Alakija, Femi Otedola and the likes from across Africa. This is the time to start the campaign to get the youth to see first with their minds what they want to see in the future of Africa and believe it is workable, then get to work on the picture in their minds, get the help needed and put everything necessary in place to accomplish this vision of a new Africa.
Music is one thing that has experienced growth in the entertainment industry in recent times with the likes of Davido, Wizkidz, Olamide, Burnaboy, Tiwa Savage, etc The movie industry is also doing quite well with Nollywood , Gallywood, etc. But it can always get better when young people look into the future and creatively work for the progress of the continent and every young talented person in the world. This is not just something about Africa but Africa is a case study of a place where poverty is on the rise. However, there are places in Asia like India where poverty rate analysis is also on the rise. My heart desire is to see young people thinking of leadership and leading their countries and improving their minds to handle higher responsibilities and break the back bone of poverty across the nation of the world. When every young person understands the power of his or her mind and the essence of their talents and develops a great vision pursued with massive action, resilience, devotion, faith, determination, dedication and diligence, practically we are already designing the future and changing the narrative turning poverty into prosperity across the world by creating wealth and growing rich in mind and financially. There is no one without potential, there are only bunch of people without the discovery of their latent potentials.
Apparently, when young minds are positively influenced in the way they think, it will impact the way they see things and the actions they will take with the use of their talents to create wealth for themselves and accomplish a landslide success in the world. Bill Gates was able to take a stand to use his wealth to fight polio in the world to see it eradicated. It was a dream fulfilled because he had a vision that was people centred, there was the will and the provision to accomplish the vision through his wealth creation. Now the polio vaccines are available across the world for countries affected by polio. This is an amiable reason why we need wealth creation to accomplish laudable visions that will change the world.
Now is the time to think differently in order to make a difference in the world.
