Write down the VISION (desired future – health, wealth, love,family, career, business,happiness), make it plain on a tablet (VISION Board), that you may RUN (positive and focussed forward movement with a clear path, clear end point).
The word Procrastination can be defined as “the HABIT or ACT of delaying or putting off something requiring immediate attention or something requiring immediate attention or something that must be done”. Procrastination is a Decision, its a Choice.
Girls, “our life boils down the choices we make and our decisions. Decision to act or procrastinate, decision to change a bad habit, decision to feed our mind with empowering information, decision to pray or not pray, meditate, visualize, who and what we associate with on a daily basis………
Do something today, invest time and efforts in YOU, revisit your Vision, revisit your goals, examine what’s working and not working , examine you big WHY, take corrective positive and empowering action, “FEED your FAITH and your fear will starve to death”
It’s a new day, new beginning, new opportunity for us to individually take personal responsibility for our life, our decisions and our actions.

According to Jim Rohn, motivation is what gets us started. HABIT is what keeps us going. Success is nothing more than a few simple disciplines PRACTICED everyday. “What we are and what we become depends on how we use our time”
Research has shown that highly successful people :
1. Plan their day the night before. Make out some thinking time to list out priorities for the day before going to bed
2. Make continual learning a must- read inspirational books daily
3. Make their health a PRIORITY- exercise , eat right and think right

“Forgetting things that are past/behind us, straining towards what is ahead” in line with Philp 3vs13 is a CHOICE / a Decision we individually make
Writing down our VISION, our GOALS, making it plain on a tablet (VISION Board) and Running with it (using it as our daily GPS, Compass) is a personal Choice / Decision.
The daily renewal of our mind, deliberate filtering of information we allow into our subconscious mind, practice of gratitude, prayers, meditation – positive affirmations / visualization is a personal Choice.
Girls, we have the God given power of CHOICE (Deut 30vs19), power to “choose what to focus on, choose what things mean, choose what to do”. According to Tony Robbins, these three choices really control our life.
“Indecision is a decision within itself. The most successful people in the world 1). Have certain HABITS in their daily routines, that enable them work smarter and get more out of their day and 2). Make decisions quickly, learn from their mistakes and fail forward”
Girls, do something today (take positive forward looking action) that your future self will be grateful for.
Have an unwavering faith, passion, purpose and vision driven day

“The poorest man in the world is a man without a dream. What we think about is more important than what we do” – Dr Myles Munroe
Cambridge dictionary describes the word THINK as – to belief something, to have a particular opinion or BELIEF, or idea about someone or something. The word think can also be describe as the act of “directing ones mind towards someone or something; the use of ones mind actively to form connected ideas”
Girls, thats why we are told in Prov 23vs 7 that “as a Man thinketh (beliefs) in his heart (mind), so is he. The question i ask myself this morning is Oge what are your thoughts about your family, children, your health, wealth, love life, career, business, that new opportunity ……..??
What do i need to do daily to transform every aspect of my life? Girls , “if we can go there in our mind, we can go there in our body”
The Cambridge dictionary defines the word BELIEVE as – to THINK that something is true, correct or real, to feel sure (emotion, blind faith) of the truth of, to imagine (Visualize). “Therefore whatever you ask for in prayers, believe that you have received it, and it shall be yours. Mark 11vs24
EXPECTATION is defined / described as: a STRONG BELIEF that something will happen or be the case in the future.
Girls , according to Stephen Covey, we get what we expect both from ourselves and from others. We we expect more, we tend to get more, when we expect less, we tend to get less.
Girls, we have the assurance in Jer 29vs11 that Gods THOUGHTS towards each and everyone of us are thoughts of GOOD (good health, family, children, abundance, good success-wealth, career, business) and not of evil to bring us to an EXPECTED end. Key word is Expected = our expectation.
“The power of expectation (Strong belief) subconsciously controls our life to create self fulfilling prophesies. The expectation of those around us modify our behavior for better, or for worse. Our own expectations can fill us with energy or drive us into despair and despondency”
Positive expectations provide the drive which energize us into achieving higher goals.\
Girls, we all need to change our thinking, change our beliefs, change our habits, change those we associate with , change our expectation to change our life.
It’s a new morning, new day, new week, new opportunity for us to individually recalibrate our mind and body,revisit of habits and take positive action in our pursuit of sustainable success in our family, career, business, our health, wealth and happiness ………..
“If you would like to build your self-esteem, remember to love yourself daily”- Louis Hay
According to Mark 12vs31, we are expected to individually Love our neighbor as ourself.
Girls , when last did you tell yourself , when last did you look into the mirror and tell yourself, (oge/ your name) – I love you, I love you exactly the way you are right now. Hmmmmm……….
The key to starting the process is for us to individually “recognize / realize that self-esteem, self-love , self-worth: whatever you feel drawn to calling it; is a SEED that grows if we WATER” it daily – right thoughts, right affirmations ………
Girls , “we are not defined by the mistakes we make” or have made (forgive and release the past), we have to allow ourself to let go of our negative self-talk, limiting belief and LOVE Ourself
“As a man thinketh in his heart (deep down in his mind), so is he – Prov23vs7
What we think about, how we individually view ourselves, is more important than what we do.
“Positive self-esteem is one of the most important and basic qualities of a Winning human being. It’s that deep down, inside the self, feeling of your own worth” – Dennis Waitley. It gives us the “strength and flexibility to take charge of our lives and grow from our mistakes and learning experiences”
Girls , “creating a healthy sense of self-esteem starts with discipling our thoughts and our tongue; requires us to cultivate new empowering habits, practice daily positive self-talk (affirmations) and practice gratitude.
Self-esteem affects “nearly every aspect of our life”: affects our trust of others, our relationships, our health, our career…..
As we go into a new morning, new day, new Friday, make the Choice and Decision to practise gratitude , adopt new habits, filter your inner circle of friends and above all have absolute trust in God (Prov 3vs5-6).
God bless and keep you all. Amen
