What’s Holding You Hostage?

20May

What's holding you hostage? What is it that you've been fittin' to do but just have not gotten around to getting done? More important than the ‘what’ is the ‘why’. Why haven't you started what you've been meaning to start? Why did you start but stopped in the middle of the process? Why haven't you resumed where you left off and why are you still making excuses? 

Procrastination by far, is probably the most potent threat to success. Though there are several factors that often work to hinder you from making the moves you dream of making and doing the things you are capable of accomplishing, if you do not know who you are, if you never truly discover the real you and if your identity remains undefined, almost nebulous, you can never begin to truly express your essence. If you do not believe that you've been blessed with something of value and significance to contribute to the world, to your generation, the only evidence of your existence on earth will one day be a tomb stone in the cemetery.

Relationships Gone Right

5May

"No man is an island, no man stands alone, each man's joy is joy to me, each man's grief is my own. We need one another, so I will defend, each man as my brother, each man as my friend. When I help my brother, then I know that I plant the seed of friendship that will never die." 

Everything that occurs in our lives, be it good or bad, is constructed within the confines of relationships. Your greatest achievements, even your failures, were hinged on the intersection of one or more relational dynamics; the ever present dynamic involving you with yourself and you with at least one other person. Whether the relationships were surficial and in passing, or they were deep and intimate, you could not and did not arrive at your current location and disposition without their influence.


Your relationship with yourself will determine the kind of interpersonal relationships you foster with others; hence the quality of the people you will naturally gravitate to. And it is within the construct of those external relationships that your destiny will be shaped.
