You are the creator’s creation. Creating comes easily to you. When you sit down to craft something new, it is not you that sits down, it is not you that does the work. The supreme one is sitting there gallantly within you.
Today, learn to separate your flesh from the problems you are faced with and let divinity take over. There is power available for you, even in your tiniest breath, there lies a seal of authority. That you are here right now is all the proof you need to know this;

Early this year, I did Business school. We were asked to design an MVP to test the validity of our business ideas. I was told to map out a strategy in class and I couldn’t do justice to a dream that had shaped my every breath since 2016. Working through it with my facilitator (who is an ardent reader of the blog!), I decided to create a website and said, if I got 100 subscribers by the end of the year, it would be proof that my writing business is worth it.

What are your dreams – not in terms of accomplishments now – but who do you really want to be? What feeds your drive? What is your purpose? Purpose – not what you do for a living, but what you live for. Not what you do for Instagram, but what you do Instagram for.

Stop acting like you do not have the right to be happy until you have achieved all your dreams. I know the days are long and tiring and you spend each one wondering when the prayer will be answered, when the big break will come. It feels so far away and now, hope is starting to drown in the big sea of time.
Are You Tired and Ready To Give Up?
Let me tell you a story.

There lived a young man, named Tari, who was optimistic. He felt like everything he needed to be successful was at the tip of his fingers; his fishing rod and net, his boat, and so on.
“Just one night and I’ll never be hungry again.” He thought and went straight to work. Tari struggled through the night, but couldn’t catch one fish.
He tried severally, each time hoping to draw up a net full of fish, each time drawing up an empty net. He tried and tried until the first cock crowed, then gave up.
Problem statement: Lack of Focus
I know you. You’re a dreamer. Half the time, you’re not really here. You’ve carved an alternate universe for yourself in your fantasies. Your dreams are mountain tall. You walk around calm and still, but inside, you are going crazy with ideas that can change the world.
Maybe you’re not particularly feeling like a dreamer today, maybe it seems so far-fetched, so impossible that it hurts to think about your dreams. and this is valid too.
My First Breath.
In 2016, I went through what you may call the darkest night of my soul. There was this excruciating and constant pain in my chest, but there was no wound. I would randomly burst into tears for no apparent reason. I suffered through my life and desperately needed to find a way out. The only option that kept coming to me was suicide.

Yesterday, I shared my experience with fear and how I have been coping. I also encouraged you to interrogate your fears and find ways to bring the light in. Instead of running away from it, I hope you are confronting it. I promised to send you a letter I wrote to my fear and here it is;

- fear is the root of your failure
- fear is a bad bad thing
- run far far away from it (fear your fear)
It’s been a long hard road of wrestling my fear. I grew up a church singer with stage fright. Every Sunday, I had to wrestle it to the ground so I could sing. Some days, I triumphed. Most days, my fear beat me black and blue.
I’m guessing you already know your purpose. Sometimes you
might be uncertain, but the truth is always nestled deeply within your veins.
Do you ever doubt that purpose? Sometimes I do. I forget my
real intention and begin to focus on other things like; being liked, being
rich, doing things that make others perceive me as a success. How wrong. The
true key to success is to be authentic, to live in the truth and to walk in
