Desire Attracts Opportunities

Opportunities abound everywhere, every time, every how and in everything. We only have to open our eyes and see them. When you desire a thing, it is the utmost in your thoughts, it speaks to your sub-conscious mins and it reflects in your actions and your outward appearance. This desire open your eyes to the relevant opportunities and when you take hold of those opportunities, the result is success. When you desire a thing, you eyes will be tuned to see the opportunities, and it is left for you to either rise to the occasion  or sit back and let them slip by.
When God stopped creation, He looked at what He has created and saw that it was very good; including opportunities. You have prayed long enough, it is time to pay! God has created all the opportunities you will ever need, all you need to do is pay the price. The Price is Desire! You only have to desire it first, it must be in your thoughts before God can put it in your hands. After you have desired and you have seen the opportunities, what you have to do is take hold of them and work on them. The other price is to work on those opportunities so as to get your heart desires. You desire success? It will show in your character, your self-esteem, your charisma, your association, your dressing. Then, you will see the opportunities. Your desire will place you in the required position.
All things are first within, then without. You have to conceive it in your thoughts before you can experience the physical representation of it. You can control some of your circumstances, but only through desire. It just has to be in your thoughts first of all. God did not just start by saying "Let there be light..." and the "Let there bes", He thought and saw all what He created in His thoughts first before He spoke them into the physical representations. Even all what He did not create, He has seen them before in His thoughts. There is nothing new under heaven; that was a popular saying I grew up hearing. Do you desire to get a job? Let it be the utmost on your mind, then it will find expression in all you do.
Imagine! Joseph in the Bible (not Mary's husband) was in prison for a very long time. While he was there, he was not a sad man (not a small feat), neither was he mourning his misfortune. Instead, it was recorded of him that he was cheerful and above all, he was put in charge of all the prisoners. He desired freedom, and it found expression in his character and charisma. It was his desire that opened his eyes to see the men who were sad because of the dreams they had.* It was his desire that made him use his gift of interpretation of dreams to help them out. He grabbed the opportunity and what resulted was Success! He was transferred to the palace, even though it was long in coming, it came! The opportunity came because of his desire for freedom.
Take responsibility, God will not do what you can do, He will do only what you can't do. God had created that opportunity of the dreams, but it took Joseph to ASK those men what was wrong with them. Accept and take up challenges from today, it will not be all rosy and smooth ride, but you are assured that it will end with you getting your heart's desires.

Your Destiny is attached to 1,000,000 others, don't disappoint them!
You are a World Shaker!

Forgiveness 2.0 – Can you go back?

Forgiveness, just like Love, has definitions to varying degrees or like an onion—layers. I always thought I had the forgiveness thing locked down, yeah right! Just like the proverbial out of the blue, it hit me that I had just erased that part from memory and decided the type of forgiveness I wanted to extend. I found out that I couldn’t (or at least that’s what I had subconsciously agreed) go back if I had the chance. On my way home, it became evident that this sealed can of worms had been in the basement and it is already stinking. It took an interviewer’s probing questions for me to shed light on that chapter in my life’s story. Forgiveness is absolute, but just like everything else, we make it relative and as such varying standards abound. This means what I call forgiveness may not cut it for someone else. While my version of forgiveness may be shallow and warped, yours may be brutally honest. Ultimately, we are responsible for our versions of forgiveness, while it is in our best


I want to tell you a story, and in the next couple of minutes, I would appreciate if you could loan me your undivided attention. I promise to return it with interest; A child was born in an urban area in the heart of Lagos state almost 3 decades ago, attended about 5 primary schools, finally obtained a first school leaving certificate, from there on to just 1 secondary school, being a very brilliant and apt student, he obtained the necessary 5 O'Level credits in senior school certificate exams and got an average score in the university and tertiary matriculations exam. He got admitted to study Physics because they just had to put him somewhere because he knows somebody who knows somebody. Even though in his heart, he wanted to study Electronics and Computer Engineering because that's where his strength is, mechanization and electronics. The result? Instead of the standard 4 years, he ended up spending 8 years and still did not graduate. For those wondering how come, here

LIFE 101

Most of the years we spend within the four walls of the school environment were spent learning theories of how things work. How to analyze, solve problems given a few clues [symptoms], calculate, and read. However, when we finally leave the confines of those walls; we discover that we have spend one-third of our lives not preparing for the present simply because the school curriculum does not make provision for people-skills, time-management, emotional intelligence, entrepreneurship, financial intelligence, et al. We start school afresh once we step into the real world and the courses are very systematic because we take the examinations first, then the lesson; the direct opposite of the school we have been used to. Life is more that just a set of classes and some library of books, far bigger than what we have been made to believe. Great men/women of the world had just one thing in common; we never hear of their academic excellence- rather, we hear of what they did outside the w
