Let the adventure begin!

I love travelling, I love aeroplanes and airports. Every country is unique. As life would have it at one point in time I worked for an airline. I loved it.

I learnt to pack a small bag with almost everything and to be ready, any moment you could be sent anywhere at anytime. Passport check, little bag check, yellow fever certificate check, some dollars and pounds check, handbag that can carry two T shirts just in case luggage is left behind, check! Ticket check! destination check!

Get the assignment and contact written down as clear as possible (those days mobile phones were not yet accessible, I had a pager! Yes you read right) Ticket recheck! Destination Recheck! Seat confirmed! at this point I am for sure on this flight. Everything is in order, I have arrived at the airport and gone through immigration check, passport stamped Exited and the date. I walk towards my gate and as I walk I must do some window shopping and finally go through the final security check before boarding the flight. My excitement level at this point is on, I just cant wait to get on board.

Finally I am on board. Soon very soon the plane is about to start to move……… going to the designated area for take off.

As this month of February is almost half way, are you preparing to take a flight into your destination of 2019?

Are you preparing? Or prepared? What’s packed? What’s the assignment, vision, goal? Is it written down? Who are you meeting up with? And why?

Are you ready for the adventure?

Transition

I cant start by saying Happy New Year – on the other hand I think I can, in as much as most people start their year in January, I believe a year can start any time even this day, it is all up to you.

The first official month of the year has gone, and a new month – February has started and before you know it, after the love hearts,chocolates and fuzzy feelings the month will be over. And a new month will begin.

Each month ends and a new one starts and this happens as the seasons change. Have you noticed that all seasons transit into one another and they all have signs or signals.

How do you move from one month to another? Are you on transit? Where are you now? which season? which month and where are you heading? what kind of transit will you need?

In the airline world, there are airport cities that help you transit to the next plane to continue your journey or bring your journey to an end- destination achieved.

Have you considered that perhaps each month prepares you for the destination and some are transit months?

What do you or what should you do during a transit? do you prepare for one ? or does one just find you on the way?

Is February 2019 a transit month or are you still on the journey and your transit is coming up?

Season’s : I am a seed.

It’s been a long while since I came and shared a few insights.  I had on occasion wanted to come and share, however I believed that when the time is right it would happen and most importantly it wouldn’t be a strain or a task, I would flow.

My life for the last three years changed in leaps and bounds. My Mum suffered a stroke just as I was entering into a new season. At that time, everything had to be put on hold. That particular time was what I called then the “New Normal” as everything changed. Everything.

And as I was searching for answers and guidance I entered into another season without really being aware of it. I have been learning, serving and being broken into the woman who I was born to be. During this process I have been enlightened to learn patience, life learning is a long process, some areas have speed, acceleration and other areas are going to take time and now I am okay with that.

There is no change without growth, and growth is  painful. A seed planted into the soil, has to die. Failure to which it cannot bring forth that which it carries.I had to learn during this period what kind of seed I am. i had to learn my identity.

My focus at the time was what I would produce. The result, the fruit, however I have come to learn that my identity is so important before being planted, and accepting my identity is vital for a great harvest.

Once I learned this lesson, the first season took place. The season of planting.

The season of being planted began; it was the season to die to self.

 

 

Who are you listening to?

The question above came from my Spiritual Father and mentor last month.

He was explaining why we have so many issues facing us today and attributed the problem to Knowledge. Yes Knowledge.

To explain better from the view of my family, Adam and Eve ate the fruit and indeed received knowledge. It is only after eating this fruit did they realize that they were naked. Before then; they were at peace. No knowledge on nudity. Soon after eating the fruit they heard God walking about and went and heed. God calls out to Adam.Asking where he is and his response is interesting.

He responded by saying he was hiding in the tress because he was naked. And God asks him the question. “Who told you, you’re naked?”

Another way as my Spiritual Father and Mentor brought out, “Who told you, you’re poor?” “Who told you, you are sick?” “Who told you, you’re not getting married?” “Who told you, you’re business idea cannot work?”

Really who told you?

And most important, why did or do you listen to that voice?

The voice that speaks over your life, is the voice that determines your destiny.

I think it would be wise to take time out of your life and ask and answer those questions. Especially if you are following a voice over your life that has no success to it, is not making progress in any area let alone the one you are perusing.

What type of knowledge are you letting into your life? Your heart, your family, your career, your children, your work or business, your mind and your environment. Is it moving you forward impacting lives, changing history or remaining stagnant with a bad attitude to boot.

Who are you listening to and why?

 

 

 

 

My Words for 2017

As we crossed over into 2017, I was wondering what will make this year my most significant year?
What can I do this year that will for sure make it so different, have more impact, not just achieve my goals but crash them in terms of the return, the effect on others.

And these four words come to me:
1. Focus
2. Consistency
3. Commitment
4. Character

When I got these words I was like -okay no big deal, so what? but after some time and thought I have come to love and appreciate these words. I am committed to studying them and learning from them and really applying them every day to what I have decided to do.

In the month of January we went through the word Focus, we are now at the area of Vision. Do you have a vision for 2017? have you seen what you are going to achieve this 2017? are you replaying it in your mind every day? Twice a day?

I see my self everyday equipping leaders and professionals, by training, coaching and mentoring. I see myself on the stage talking and sharing and learning from others. I see myself travelling around the country, continents doing the same thing. I see myself and my children enjoying time together having fun, reading, sight seeing, visiting museums and amusement parks. I see myself meeting new leaders from all over the world, who are excited and are sharing their nuggets of wisdom with me. I can go on and on.

What do you see for yourself in 2017?

What does focus bring?

In the month of January I was getting my focus in check. I have been making sure that; that which I want to achieve this year is in clear view and sight.

I’m also making sure that I put on some blinders, because there are many shinny things that can and will come around, that can make me loose focus. It takes just a minute and look elsewhere and loose focus and sink!

Trust me, ask Peter! One minute he was walking on the water and in the next he began to sink. Well he lost focus and faith.

Where does the faith come in? how does it relate with focus? I think faith plays a big part as it helps us focus on our vision.

For the last few weeks I have been asking the question what is your focus? or where are you focusing on this year?

I believe it has been a bit challenging to a few people to answer the question especially if they do not have a VISION.

Focus brings clarity to your Vision!

Do you have a VISION?

What is your 2017 vision? and are you focusing on it?

Focus!

So what is focus?
By definition
fo·cus
ˈfōkəs/Submit
noun
1.the center of interest or activity.

2.the state or quality of having or producing clear visual definition.

1.(of a person or their eyes) adapt to the prevailing level of light and become able to see clearly.

2. pay particular attention to.

So my question to myself when 2017 started is what is my focus for the year? and where will I be focusing – Yes I may have some goals-a few but what will I be focusing on.
Well for me to answer this question I had to write down all my goals and then break them into monthly goals and then weekly goals so that I could see clearly what I wanted to do and if indeed fitted into the overall goal.

Why was this important for me to break down every thing down to the week? well for me to plan and then be able to focus to really be CLEAR on what that week is all about – day-to-day and what I will be able to achieve, accomplish.

So the question I want to ask you – What are you focusing on now and why?

I can’t wait to read from you and hear what your focus is!
