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?

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!

I’m taking another step!

This is the week, I have to accomplish my goals for the month and hit the residual income.

Am super excited.

I can’t lie sometimes I’m also a tad bit anxious. Have you ever known that you had to move the next level? But that means more. More of you being.

How am I coping? I found this very awesome video, that reminds me that everything happens for a reason.

The thing is my perception of myself is now ready for the next move. There are so many lessons I have learnt and am still learning on this journey. Sometimes I wanted that fast move, and am grateful that I have had to learn patience, and handling what I can at this step.

Knowing that this is my journey, I may have some people on the same path, but most of the time the path is mine. I have a few friends or family with me on some steps, but mostly I have to make so many decisions and take many other steps and many of them alone.

This is not a bad thing. Learning yourself, being humble, being coach-able, being in action, leads you to being ready to take the step, and take another step.

This is the journey, so here I am taking another step.

But let TD Jakes say it better

To those of you who are making sure that this is going to be your best year ever, please watch this short video. Keep at it. We are now left with 10 months to create our amazing 2015. I know it is possible. I am not going to quit, I may fall, but am back up. I am determined to make this year the best year ever.

Just because I can.

Let us do this!

 

Theme song for 2015 number 2

Happy February everyone,

I must admit am so happy to be in this new month. This year I decided to make every day and every month count towards my big year 2015.

To help me just get it right I managed to get my dream board or my vision board going. I must admit that just the act of getting that done, has already done wonders for my mind and my focus on the goals. Every day I look at my board and get inspired.

To help me on this journey of the 6 figure income, music plays an important part. It has the power to move me in so many ways. I love listening to music. I love singing along to my favorite songs. In fact music is with me all the time, in the car, during my workouts, and as I type away there is always some song in the back ground that is playing.

I feel such a connection with the lyrics and the melody and harmonies of songs.  Some make me just want to get up and get moving. Others make me feel the sadness of the heartbreak that we all have gone through. Others give me hope. Then there are the praise ones and worship ones that just connect my whole being to my creator, My God. These are the one’s that I really hold dear. These days I’m grateful that we have all types, from Gospel, Hymns, to Praise and boy do I just love to Praise.

My other theme song for 2015 makes me feel so good. I think it’s because I now know for the longest time in my life, I have been hiding. I have not really wanted my light to shine. In as much as I would like to do my work and live my life well, I really did not want to be noticed.

But that has all changed. This light of mine must shine and shine and shine in 2015.

Now do not get me wrong,

It’s not the attention am seeking, I have come to see and appreciate myself others will and hence my light will shine.

And that is it.

We all are to shine in what we love to do, and we are to shine by doing it so well that even when the thought of what you do comes to anyone’s mind they can only think of you and mention you even when you are not present.

I hope you like my second theme song. I love it.

Lets all come out, and be our true selves. Let us shine this year and let this year know you are here!

Where is my success

Just woke up. Its like 5am.
Just switched on my phone.  Its beeping ferociously.  I have like 50 whatsup messages on the business team group.
A team mate has moved ranks. Wow. Awesome news. Am like wow. They have worked so well with their team.

Am thinking about my team and our success.  How come we are just not getting successful with team movements in rank.
Hmmm.
I start to review my activities.   I have been pretty active.  Consistent. I realise that not everyone on the team wants what I want hence will not be as active or consistent.

In that moment I realise that maybe I was depending on my team. Depending that they will do as I have been doing.
That their desires are as strong as mine. That we are all going to grow together.

And that’s when it hit me.

My success is not dependent on anyone else but me.

Sure. My team mates love the opportunity, however each one will do excatly what they want when they want. Am not in charge of that.

Yes. It sucks.

I am grateful though that I have a couple who are just like me. Determined.

I now need to get out of my comfort zone.  And create my success.

It’s not easy. But it’s possible.

Lessons learnt:
♧discipline
♧consistently inviting
♧attend trainings
♧self belief
♧self confidential
♧have fun
Here is to  our success.  You are only a few invites away.

 

 

Believe

Do you ever wonder about your belief in something? Anything?
Do you review your life and get amazed about what you managed to achieve just because you believed you could do it?

I remember when I got my first pregnancy.  I was 100% sure I was going to have a baby girl.  I was so sure that I only shopped for baby girl clothing to the bewilderment of my mother.
She begged me to get at least a few unisex items.
I had gone for 3 scans and each time the baby made sure we could not figure out what I was going to have.
Guess what my baby was???
Baby girl.  🙂

Later I decided I was going to have a boy. This time I went a step further and got a name and started talking about him. Everyone thought I was crazy. And lo and behold.  I got my son.

Those two incidents made me believe in the power of a certain mind.

Sometimes though it’s not that easy.
2014 has made me question my belief.  Especially in myself.

Where is my 100% belief? I have believed in so many things to happen.  None of them have happened.

If anything my results are just the opposite.
And the more I push myself to believe in my desired outcome the worse off results I get.

It’s truly disheartening.
Am set out to figure this  out, because it’s hurting my business,  myself confidence and my faith.
