Take The Next Step.

The famous quote by Lao Tzu that states, “The journey of a thousand miles begins with a step”, still holds water. But it is quite unfortunate that all some people do is to take the first step.

Whatever your dreams may be, you may have taken the first step to bring you to where you are. But is that all you plan to do? Are you going to quit after earning the degree, starting the website or even talking to a few people about your goals? Will you stop training after this long? Will you give up all you have put in so far?

Please don’t! You have the ability to be great inside you and you have to take the next step that will help you bring that greatness out. Whether it is in the area of academics, business, family or in your personal life, there is a next step to be taken. It is the step that will bring you closer to your goal. That is where your real Joy will be found.

Your future is intact but the way to get to it is to not stay where you are. You get there by being on the move and striving for the best you can ever be. If you need a team for your dream to become a reality, go for it. Yes, sometimes there is a fear of the unknown but when you’re afraid, let that fear push you one step closer to your destination, rather than paralyzing you.

There is greatness in you.

Take The First Step.

According to Martin Luther King Jr, “Faith is taking the first step even when you don’t see the whole staircase.”

There is an inexplicable joy that fills the heart of a parent as they see their adorable child take the first step. Shouting, clapping, and tears of joy sometimes fill the environment because it is a great accomplishment. Whatever your age is, there is always a joy that feels your heart and that of your loved ones when you take a step towards your dreams.

Whether it is in business, education or everyday life, there are many steps to be taken to the destiny God has for us. To one person, the first step could be taking a class or meeting new people who will help in the furtherance of the dream. Whether you can imagine yourself starting a business or a ministry, you have to TAKE THE FIRST STEP.

Make the first call, go to the first meeting or whatever you need to do. The key to achieving the big goal is to take the first step. If you have already taken your first step, GOOD JOB. You have to be consistent, let go of any source of discouragement, and believe in yourself irrespective of what you may be going through.

Dreams Need Plans.

Pablo Picasso said, “Our goals can only be reached through a vehicle of a plan, in which we must fervently believe, and upon which we must vigorously act. There is no other route to success.”

Yes, we all have dreams and we desire to see them come into manifestation but the question is, how do we intend to do it? How do you intend to be that author, runner, designer or doctor? How do you intend to free yourself from becoming another statistic of society? Yes, your friends know you want to inspire others to greatness, but how?

In this year 2018, is need a well-thought plan. A plan that will guide you where you desire to be the most. It might require that you cut off some friends and lay aside some behaviors but at the end, it will be worth it. I once heard a great man say, “planning is winning.”

You have the winner on the inside but what matters most is that it comes to the outside and that requires a plan. Even though I can write ten pages on why we need a plan, it all sums up to one thing: it is the key to the manifestation of any great dream. A plan does not have to be delicate. It should be in your words, style and even your own language so you can understand. Write down a plan for your dream, run with it and see how much you can accomplish. Until I come your way again, I’m off to write down my plan.

The Tomorrow That Never Comes.

If you read the title and thought of the word procrastination, you thought right. Charles Dickens once said, “my advice is to never do tomorrow what you can do today. Procrastination is the thief of time.”

There are people with great dreams that when allowed to materialize, will change the course of human endeavor. They can build machines and create products to support that will make life easier. But what do they do? Hope for the tomorrow that never comes to take action.

Have you ever wondered why so many dreams do not come true? Are you that kind of person who said he/she will start a business or go back to school and never did? Could it be as a result of the fear of the unknown? There are people who never begin because they are not sure of what will happen. And there are others who never begin as a result of the fear of failure.

The button line is that they push the days back, not doing what they have to do. Procrastination has crashed the dreams of many people and it is time do that thing we said we want to do. Do today what you planned to do today. That is the only way to keep forging forward.

Be Consistent.


Richard G. Scott, an American scientist and religious leader once said, “you become what you want to be by consistently being what you want to become each day. ”

Have you ever said you will do something every day only to stop, or better still “pause” on the third day? If yes, this one area you have to keep a check on. More than once in a lifetime, you will come across people who start something and never finish it. They say they will write and they stop at one point.

There is nothing to debate about the fact that we are sometimes discouraged, hurt, confused, or we just lose the desire to keep pushing. But that should not stop you from pushing. Having a bad day sometimes, is part of the human experience. The negatives will come, but you have to stay determined and consistent.

When an army stops training, how can they protect the inhabitants of their nations, cities, etc.?  They will become losers and miss out on the great moments lying ahead. You have to keep ACTING on your dreams. Keep singing, writing (songs, books, blogs etc.) and doing every GOOD thing you are doing.  You will be honored one day if you can stay CONSISTENT.

Don’t Allow Bad Occurrences To Stop You.

Robert H. Schuller once said, “Problems are not stop signs, they are guidelines.” Michael Jordan also said, “Obstacles don’t have to stop you. If you run into a wall, don’t turn around and give up. Figure out how to climb it, go through it, or work around it.”

Have you ever heard someone say stuff happens? Yeah, both good and bad things happen to us every now and then. In the days of good happenings, we thank God and jubilate. And when bad things happen, we tend to run out of the door. It’s quite unfortunate how many people say they believe in their dreams but quit at challenging times.

Is it another relationship gone bad? Are you discouraged by a trusted friend or confused and don’t know what to do? I don’t know your situation, but you also have to know that that should not stop you. Your dreams are still depending on you to be achieved. Those words are still in you to write the book. The pencil in your book bag can still draw. There are people waiting for you to give your first, second and hundredth speech. Why allow what is happening now to stop you from experiencing the glorious life God has in store for you?

It’s Okay To Start Small.

Vincent Van Gogh once said, “Great things are not done by impulse, but a series of small things brought together”.

I know you have heard the old adage that says, “little drops of water makes a mighty ocean”. Yes, that is very true. Sometimes there is a tendency to believe that the only way to become great is by starting great but it is not so. You have to start from where you are to get to where you want to be.

Remember, every big tree was once a seed, every great business was once an idea, and every adult was once a baby. The establishment of your dream doesn’t necessarily have to be big when it starts even though it has to get bigger as it grows. Working from the ground level up is a proof of determination and resilience.

Don’t get tricked into believing you have to get to your destination in the shortest possible time. It’s a step by step process. For the fact that your friends with whom you began are way ahead of you does not mean you will never get there. As Eric Thomas will always say, “keep your grind”. Success is achievable even though it is not easy. You can make it. You can be great. You just have to start somewhere. Start small but DON’T stay small. The greatness in you will soon shine.
