Reality check is, It is tough to build dreams in a very discouraging environment, with negative vibes surrounding us and very little push from the giant within.
I always encourage people to pursue their dreams not because I think it is easy but because “when the going gets tough, the tough should get going” The Almighty did not promise a smooth journey, He promised a safe landing with consistence and perseverance.
Today’s just the 6th day of the new gregorian year 2020 and I have spoken to not less than 6 women and 4 men who has ‘fire’ in them but a lot of limiting factors like financial, psychological, marital, economical….et al. But in all, I see a constant factor, “The willingness to BECOME MORE” but the hidden pull-back called “EXCUSES”.
It’s tough when as a man, a married one…..cannot meet up with the homefront responsibilities due to so many factors and it is tougher for the woman when the society expects you to ‘persevere long suffering’ in the name of being supportive and patient.
Most of the women that I have spoken with, have fallen out of love with their spouses….though they do not come out to say it but i know it. Younger ladies who aren’t married yet are not ready to settle for less, younger men are not ready to commit to marriage, single parenting (especially women) has become the order.
In all, I want us to realise that “Life is not about getting more, it is about BECOMING MORE. There comes a point in your life when you realise who matters, who never did, who won’t anymore and who always will. And in the end, you learn who is fake, who is true and who would risk it all for you.
I personally am becoming more and more myself with time. I guess that’s what GRACE is. The refinement of your soul through time. I never cared about the material things that someone could give me. I care about time, attention, loyalty, honesty and effort. Those things mean more than anything money could buy. This guided me to BECOME MORE. I exude confidence not because I have materials things but because I enjoy GRACE.
This is the way to BECOME MORE. Waste no time arguing about what a good man or woman should be. BE ONE. I do not doubt that we would BECOME MORE if we build a better relationship with God, humans and ourselves. Know your GPS, know YOU, know WHO you are with (parents, spouse, boss, children etc…)…..
FOCUS ON BECOMING MORE TO ACHIEVE MORE WHILE DOING LESS.
May your dreams come true?
