THE LAW OF AVERAGES: Pursuing success amidst failures

There is a law of averages and it states that "in other to have a good number of successes, you have to experience a good number of failures", if for instance, you can score 3 goals out of 10 shots on target, then to score 6 goals, you have to hit 20 shots on target. In relation to success, for you to succeed more, you have to double your rate of failure. Many people want to be sucessful, but what is keeping them for their desired success is "the fear" of failure and not "the failure" in itself. I have come to know experientially that you only succeed in as many times that you're willing to fail, it's not that you really go in there to fail but the attitude of mind is that "no matter what, am going to work it out until I succeed". Many great inventions in history have similar stories of unwavering faith in their belief for their efforts to succeed that amidst seemingly impossible situations, they moved ahead with their plans, and ultimately recorded great successes. Your success in life hinges on your ability to move ahead despite the obstacles before you. Your success in life hinges greatly on your ability to look past your failures and see the light at the end of the tunnel and realise that you can and will succeed only if your hang on. Your dreams are too real to let go, those dreams that won't go away was placed there by God. You will succeed if only you will not fear failure but go ahead, if you fail or fall, get up, dust yourself and try and again, and again and again, till you succeed. You see, the universe will give to you anything will want if you are forceful,determined and work hard enough to bring it to past. I want to encourage you today to start all over again and give that your dream another shot, you will be surprised that you'll make it, that impossible door may just need one last blow to crack it and send it crumbling down, so do not quit. You will succeed! Go ahead and believe in yourself and trust God to do it for you. Write that professional exam, take that interview,enroll for that course, you are guaranteed to succeed!

The most important things that keeps one going and gives meaning to life are the lofty dreams in your heart. Nothing really excites you and gives you motivation and zest for living as a worthy goal that your heart is set on achieving. The question now is, do you have dreams that you've abandoned? Dreams that were once very strong in your heart but due to the vissicitudes of life you've abandoned them? I want to encourage you to look deep within and see if there are such in your life. The most tragic thing that can happen to a man is to find out later in life that he would have been successful in acheiving anything he desired had he taken the courage to pursue them. We have nowadays, old men who are bitter about their youthful age and look back at what would have been had they pursue their dreams, do you want to grow old and look back and regret that you never pursued those things that would really have given you joy and fulfillment? What are the excuses you're using today to put off those dreams? At first, we complain about not having enough time: we are too busy with our studies when we were in secondary school and too young, we are too busy with our advanced studies as undergraduates in univestities and polytechnics, we are busy serving our father land during the National Youth Service, we then get into the big-pay job and find out we still don't have enough time because we just have to deliver on the job, we then find our sweetheart and get married, raise kids and all the committments and responsibilities that goes with it! All these while still stuck with the same old excuse of "no time". Eventually, we now find that we are above 40 and approaching our 50's and we look back at what would have been. There are bitter old men who look back at their past youthful age and look and are sad that they failed to pursue and live their dreams! Don't allow that to happen to you! My brotherly advice is summarized like this :- 1) Pick up your dreams books, and dust it properly 2) Get inspired again by going through them and setting new,bigger and higher goals; because the more loftier your goal, the more it inspires you. 3) Trust God to give you the strength to go after it resolutely, like Winston Churchill said 'Never,never,never give up'. 4) Do something daily to that takes you towards your dreams. If you want to be a writer, write at least a page a day;if you're a singer/composer/instrumentalist practice everday! I want to state here without any doubt in my heart that I believe in your dreams! You will succeed! God is on your side! Take charge! Recommended Reading: The Leadership Secrets of Jesus( Mike Murdock), Goals ( Brian Tracy)

Life, like most of us would have found out now, is very very challenging, especially as an adult. The care-free attitude of childhood and adolescent is past and now we are faced with the reality of adulthood that "responsibility" is a vital aspect of life. You are responsible for getting gainfully employed,staying employed, managing your relationship with people and meeting up with your obligations to your family and loved ones. You truly cannot shift the buck here, you have to take up the task of doing certain things because now, the baton has been passed to you from your parents. Most of us now in adulthood realised that we have more pressing needs towards "others" than our personal wants or needs. You'll find out that you have to deny yourself somethings if you truly want to be responsible to others. And if you truly and really want to be a responsible adult, you've got to really be selfless and ready to sacrifice your personal agenda for those of others to whom you're responsible. You remember those days when you used to depend on one uncle to give you more for your textbooks,school lecture hand-outs and project moneys? Hmm? I bet you do. Now that you're an adult how well are you faring in meeting up with your own 'obligations' to your siblings? Suddenly, you realise that you're now the uncle your little nieces and nephews look up to for "settlement". And I tell you, adulthood, and "uncle-hood and aunty-hood" do come very unexpectedly. Yeah, you suddenly found yourself working in a bank or one of the thriving finance institutions and people now look at you as "the guy hold cash" or "him don hammer", but you know that you're just trying to make way for yourself. I know this sounds familiar. Here are a few brotherly advice I have: 1) Keep it real, don't try to impress anybody, be original and don't live larger than what you're really worth. You're not competing with anybody. 2) Try and give the much you can. Be truthful and underpromise but overdeliver. 3) Be generous, treat the person the way you would want to be treated knowing how much you have? Now that you're in that "uncle/aunty-shoe", how much would you give your sibling from the amount of cash in your bank account? Be truthful and be generous. 4) Pray to God to increase your resources so that you can give more in future. You're blessed. Recommended Reading: The Leadership Secrets of Jesus ( Mike Murdock)

In life, there are always defining moments, and yours comes when you decide that you're fed-up of your present circumstances and you want something different: When you decide to take a stand for what you believe and what you really want in your life! No great achievement in life will come through any other route. You just have to come to the point when you say, enough is enough and you want something different and you want to get what you have been dreaming about for some many years. You see,friends, it doesn't matter how lofty your dreams are, if you fail to get to that position when you take a resolute,confident and stubborn stand for what you really want, nothing real would happen. What are those dreams that you've been keeping in the "pipeline" for years? What are those visions,projects that are have been and still burning in your heart, that you would really love to establish and accomplish? I want to announce to you that they are REAL, you're dreams are TRUE. The question really is, do you have the courage to establish them? What price are you willing to pay to see them come to pass? No matter how big your dreams are, God is bigger than them! No matter how crazy and seemingly impossible they appear, God can surpass them! No matter how long it's been on your mind, God can bring it to pass with just one phone call! No matter how cashless,helpless and hopeless it seems, God is there to fulfill it! Just believe! Just believe in Him, the only thing He really requires from you is your believe that He can do ALL things for you and fulfill all your dreams and give you the desired future of your dreams! You will make it! You'll not fail! Recommended Reading: You Can Will ( Shev Khiera), Inspiring Moments (John Obuku)

GET YOUR PRAISE ON -Winning the battles of life through praise

It's a lovely day,democracy day here in Nigeria, God bless Nigeria. It's a time where Nigerians celebrate their hard earned democracy. God bless Nigeria. So, it's also a time to share a very special secret that I've discovered as a very powerful tool for overcoming the storms of life. Life can be very tough atimes you know, it's all part of the divine agenda that we go through the mess before the message, that we go through trials before the triumph, that you get through the test before the testimony, (that probably sounded like music to you but to me it's more real than I could really explain), so dear friends, what is this secret that I've found? It's the power of Praising God Through Your Problems! You see nothing beats the above statement! Nothing. Trust me friends, if you've prayed and it doesn't seem to work, common get your praise on! Praise never fails, because you can never praise amiss even though you can pray amiss! Why? because praise is giving to God for whom He is, what He's done and what He's gonna do in your life. Common people,let's try this key of the Kingdom, GET YOUR PRAISE ON! He is worthy! Recommended Reading: The Power of Praise & Worship ( Myles Munroe), The Worship Handbook ( Rick Muchow)

THE FUTURE IS NOW! : Re-defining reality

Most of the time when we talk about the future, we tend to think of it as some very far period in our lives, but I've come come to realise that the future arrives in seconds...surprised? I know it sounds a liitle too simple but it is true. The future you're talking about is gradually,slowly but surely appearing second by second. And every time we procrastinate, we are literally sabotaging our desired future aspirations because the secret of your future lies in what you do daily. So I as this question? What are you doing daily that is leading to the "better you" of tomorrow? What are your habitual activities,routines and pass-times that is in congruence with where you are headed? Where are you heading in life? If I should wake you up, 4.00 am in the morning and ask you this question : "what is your goal for your life?", what will be your response? Friends, we need to come to the point where we take an inward analysis and ask ourselves some very very serious questions, i call them life-defining questions. Some life defining quesitons I think worth asking are: 1) What is my major definate purpose in life? What is that thing that I'm out to acheive on this planet earth? 2) What have I done today that is leading me on the path to acheiving my major definate purpose in life? 3) Since, the beginning of this year till now what have a acheived in my spiritual,financial,marital and professional life? 4) Before the year ends, what am I out to achieve? 5) If today where my last day, what would you do? Who would you show more love to, make peace with,evangelise to,care about? Decide that hence forth, you'll make everyday count. live life consciously not just some haphazard "any-where-belle-face" kind of life style people are so easily swept into.
