Doing the unusual

What is doing the unusual?

So many thoughts come to mind once unusual is read, well unusual is defined as  "Unlike what is expected; differing in some way from the norm."

Exactly you read that right!

Doing the unusual is what most people dare when embarking on anything in life.

We always choose the normal, the usual, the common, the easy and the least challenging option when making decisions on anything and everything, forgetting that the usual will give you a usual result. I bet you don't want that.

The arithmetic equation in this is so simple, unusual preparation + (unusual) opportunity  = unusual success.

The unusual in parenthesis signifies that the extra effort put in your preparation would create a resultant opportunity.

Usual begat usual and unusual begat unusual.

To be unusual is simple, I am on an unusual journey myself and I assure you by God's grace am getting an unusual success.

Success Recipe: Godfidence(3)

Godfidence is a word that's fast taking over our world. Maybe someday soon it will get into the Oxford Advanced Learners dictionary but for now let me define it.
Godfidence is coined from God and confidence.
God is the creator of heaven and earth, God is omnipotent, omniscient, omnipresent, He is all encompassing, Father to the fatherless and defender of the widow. I could go on and on with the definitions, named and accolades I have for God.
Confidence on the other hand is defined as being very sure of something and it's used positively, it's an expression of certainty and the quality of trusting.

Godfidence can therefore be defined as being very sure of something because God is involved. Godfidence can also be described as an expression of assurance of anything according to God's word. It is a major ingredient in the success recipe actually the most important one, because persistence will fuel and push you for a while but not forever, focus will drive you on, but Godfidence gives you the assurance you need. What's more important than the assurance of success, as the ingredients bubble in that cooking pot and the aroma of success fills the air.

Let's say you have never cooked your favorite soup before, you Google and find some recipes online and even saw videos on YouTube after watching and doing carefully what the YouTube chef does. Your salivating cos the aroma of the soup you have made fills the air but not just that, you then eat it and it even tastes better than the one you have always paid for at the restaurants.

The assurance (Godfidence here) of a soup well made is the awesome aroma that fills the air, even more fulfilling than this is the awesome taste of the soup. In life our assurance in God is actually all we need to be successful, but without a focus and persistence the success equation would not be correct. So the success recipe or equation is this: Persistence + Focus + Godfidence = Success.

I pray to see you at the top. ☺😊

Success recipe: Focus (2)

We all have heard the word "focus", to some folks it's the movie, for some it's for student concentrating in school, for others it's the point at which reflections and  refractions converge. Well, it doesn't matter what focus is to you. 

In today's writing focus is used to express the feeling that is backed up with a decision to do what ever you set your mind to do, focus means concentration of attention. 

On the success walk or journey, we will encounter so many distractions it will range from personal to family to work to school to public to social media distractions. Some days the distractions would come so strong, other days it will be minimal.
The point is this, no matter what you encounter always remember your end goal(as your main aim) at those times and stay focused.‎

Staying focused can not be over emphasized. Stay strong, keep your head up. God gives His hardest battles to His strongest soldiers.‎
I love you all and I pray God gives you the strength to stay focused.‎

Success Recipe: Persistence (1)

Persistence, consistence, determination, passion, drive, zeal and a lot more are synonymous in nature. We often use these words interchangeably which is okay based on the context it's been used. ‎

I will be writing on persistence today. Different people have different understanding of this word,  gladly my dictionary gives me this definition that I like a lot with relatable examples.‎
Persistence: the property of being persistent.
Example 1: You've got to admire his persistence. He's asked her out every day for a month even though she keeps turning him down.‎
Example 2: The little girl has a persistence in her request of a doll from her father
Example 3: Nigerians without no doubt have a strong persistence that the country will change in all ramfication for good

I will then relate persistence to my lifestyle. I've got to thank God for the persistence I have in updating my blog weekly even when the number of viewers aren't up to a million yet. That's on the lighter note.

Persistence is an attribute everyone and anyone who desires to be successful will have to possess. Sometimes our plans that are neatly drafted and crafted might give us a very damning and discouraging result which will dampen our motivation. To continue that which we already started we need persistence. Its times like this that persistence is required. Persistence is the fuel that keeps us moving when we are tired, worn out and frail. Persistence is very essential in everything and anything we find ourselves doing.
Persistence is one of the key ingredients in the success recipe and remember persistence is you encouraging yourself, when no one else would encourage you.

I will write on Focus next week by God's grace. Focus is another key ingredient in the Success recipe.‎
