The Bible says that we should not fear anything because God is with us. Fear means to flight, and so what the Bible is really saying to us is that when we are faced with challenges or that new thing( the unknown, we should not run away from it but face it head on. That is being courageous in the presence of fear.
Fear will never be absent.
In this life you will rather make fear your friend or an enemy. But either way we live with it. It is kind of cool to feel scared, sometimes it is a fuel to do something. Use this fuel and you will always get things done and goals accomplished.
Fear of the unknown.
Joyce Meyer says that it is not fear of the unknown but anxiety of not knowing everything. my advice to you, stop! Stop wanting to know every aspect of your life and let God be in control. Take life as it comes and put the rest in the care of God.
Do it afraid.
Live life to the fullest. Are you scared of going on a date alone? Scared of meeting that person? Scared of raising up your voice? Scared of driving, scared of staying alone? Do it afraid. Do it scared. The more you stretch that muscle, the stronger you get.
I wish you all the best on your journey to improving yourself and becoming the best you could ever be through doing things afraid. Face your fears and live a fulfilled life.
Maybe what is keeping you stuck and preventing your growth is the false information you have. Wrong beliefs about money, marriage, friendship, work, career and yourself etc can have a negative impact on your life. And you are stagnant in life if you do not challenge these beliefs and that wrong knowledge.
If you need to set yourself free from the bad and wrong things you learnt over the years you have to substitute these with new, fresh and real information. For the truth shall set you free.
1. Do a thorough research
Learn not to believe everything you hear, learn to question things. Do your own research and be sure of something before your let it in your mind and start believing in it.
2. Invest in new sources of information
Buy new books on the subject you are having false information on. Read new articles on the subject. Ask people who have been there, went through it successfully. Note; Never ask advice about marriage from a person who have 5 part time partners. The information you will get most times will not be good for you.
3. Learn everyday
Make it a point to learn something new everyday. When you wake up, take note of the thing you are trying to get rid off, the false information and take it to yourself to know the opposite of that false information. This will challenge you and also expand your knowledge daily.
I want to challenge you right now to set up your mind for winning. Set up your mind positively to overcome your laziness and become a deligent women.
* Time is going anyway.
If you there is an important thing that you have to do, but are lazy, let me remind you that the time is not waiting for you. you choose to spend it doing something useful or to spend it doing something useless. At the end of the day it is 24 hours that you have. And 5 years from now, 5 years would have passed, you will be 5 years older. Either your life would have changed for the better or for the worse. The choice is yours.
* The 5 second rule
This is very effective if you struggle with self discipline. You count from 5- 0 and then you get up without even thinking about it, and do what you are supposed to be doing. If you are anything like me you need something to keep your mind from wandering off of the task at hand. This rule is life changing.
* prepare and plan.
I often feel like I get lazy if I don’t know what to do, how to do it or where to start. So if I have a project to work on, I will first start by preparing where I am going to be doing it. Get all the tools ready and plan out where to begin. Break every bigger task into smaller manageable ones.
If you lack, you will not get anywhere in life. Your confidence is a bridge between where you are now and where you will be tomorrow. It’s either you get it right now or you live to regret the chances you never took.
The feeling that you can do something very well. Sure about yourself.
Are you suffering in the hands of your partner, friend or relative. Abuse is abuse, nomatter who it is coming from. Physical, emotional, sexual, verbal abuse, refuse! Walk away now!!
1. They don’t think you are good enough
Do not be with people who are hard to please. No matter what you do for them, it is wrong. You are never good enough for them. Run away !
Run away from narcissists. People who are never wrong. People who never take a fall for anything. People who know it all, who deserve it more than you do. It is all about them. Believe me you don’t need such in your life.
3. Brutal honest
They do not consider how you feel, they call you nasty names, belittle you as much as they can. Own up to yourself, you deserve better.
4. You are scared of them.
Do not hang around anyone who makes you scared, if you have to fake who you are for their sake, leave them. You should be free to speak your mind and do you.
5. They lie to you
Lies are bad, and if you deserve to know the truth, then you have no right hanging out with them.
6. They gossip about you.
If someone has a problem with you, they should approach you.
These type of toxic people pretend to want to help but instead they are making fun of you with other people behind your back. Run away from them.
Are you constantly doing something you know that is going to have long term detrimental effects on your body, your health or relations.
I have developed this bad habit of sleeping until noon, and working until morning.

Your goals matter
Your vision and dreams matter, if they are important to you then they are worth pursuing. No matter how crazy they sound follow your dreams.

What if you could have that strong and deep relationship with God. Today I share my 6 best tips for having quality time with God
1. Pray first thing in the morning.
Starting your day with God is the best way to get a deeper relationship with Him. It is a good way to get to know God well, to get to depend on Him totally and cast all your cares to Him. So every morning before you commit yourself to do anything, take the first moments and give them to God.
2. Read the Bible
God speaks to us through His written Word most times, and if you are not reading the Word of God you are missing out. After prayer, go to the Word. And then meditate on it.
3. Listen to church services, podcasts etc.
When you are busy going about your day, preparing your kids, doing laundry, you can have a church service playing in the background.
4. Listen to Christian books on audio books
Like the previous tip, you can always carry an audiobook with you wherever you go and you can listen to it anywhere everytime you are free, or busy with something that do not require your hearing.
5. Read Christian books to your kids.
The more you read Christian books to your kids, the more you familiarise yourself with the Word of God.
6. Hang out with people who speak of the goodness of the Lord.
Bad company spoils good character. Hang out with people who speak of the goodness of the Lord, hang out with people who are going to leave you hungry and thirsty for more of God.
These measures will ensure you have/ develop a deeper relationship with the Holy Trinity of God. If you like more content like this please consider following my blog. Fresh blogs to you every Monday. Much love, God bless you…
Do you often feel like you are not content no matter what you do. It doesnt matter what you have accomplished in life you constantly feel like you are missing something. What if you could become succcesful, balance your life properly and enjoy every step. Here is what i will be discussing with you today:
and financial success
Real success is knowing that you are not just your job, you are not just about eating healthy and negleting everything else in your life. You are a human being with a spirit , soul and body. All this 3 should work together in harmony.
1. Physical success
This is about you being content in the fact that you eat healthy, you exercise regularly and you get enough sleep. The only time you are going to know that you are successful in this area is when you are not focusing on one thing only. Not depriving yourself of sleep or rest. Not oversleeping either. there are people who are not having any physical activity at all. During the day they just sit in front of their computer and hardly move, and later on they sit infront of the tv and never get to walk or exercise. This is poor decision making and choices for long term contentment in all areas of your life.
To make sure that you are not being left behind or neglecting your health in this area you should have a schedule. Go to the internet and check for the plan that best suits you. What time of the day are willing to exercise, where, wearing what kind of shoes or clothing. What type of music will you be listening to. Answer those questions then you will be on your way to to physical success.
You should aslo plan your meals. Plan the perfect food for your goals and for your body type. You should strive to have a balanced diet. As you know that you have to eat more fruits and verges. Also eat less sugar, fats and salt. You have to plan your food, what you are going to eat in the morning, at lunch, dinner and what you are going to be snacking on in between the main meal. This will make it easy for you to prepare healthy food in advance, so that you do not hurry and buy an unhealthy quick fix because you are hungry. You can cook in bundles and store in the refrigirator.
sleep / rest
Most people are not getting enough sleep because they are obsessed with only a certain part of their lives. They do not want to stop working, or quit playing that game. Sometimes you have to learn to delay gratification, stop forcing to accomplish a task when it is night and time to sleep. Just think for your brain for a second and go to rest. Do not work 100 hours 7 days a week, that is absurd. Take a novel, relax and read. Go out to movies. Go out on a date with your kids and loved ones. Do not make a mistake of not resting the body that works so much.
2. financial success
I really believe in financial freedom. I do not like lacking. I do not want my children to be in need of anything. My family members should not suffer in my presence. If you are anything like me then you understand the amount of time we might want to invest in the search for financial freedom. It is very easy to just get consumed in this whole idea of wealth and leave other spheres of life suffering. you must learn to fight a good fight.
creating financial freedom
This may include increasing your streams of income. passive income is one of the best way that people turn to when they are trying to be content in life, because this will allow them to move and do things that they love with people they love. Creating financial freedom is not easy, the first few months will require some sacrifices but as the business gets established you will regain your flexibility. But that’s if you do it correctly.
how to succeed financially in a smart way
As i said above, the fisrt few months of creating wealth are going to be very difficult. It includes all the research and planning, it is going to consume much of your time. So it better to warn your family first about what you are going to be doing for the next weeks. Some people have the tendency of just grinding and grinding non stop. Leaving everything else and anyone behind. Refuse this. work smarter, do not be obssesed with riches that you lose your kids and loved ones over it. It is not worth it in the end. And if you want to be content in life, you need to be a complete lady, in spirit, soul and body.
3. Spiritual success
Know what works for you. How many hours of prayer do you need. How many hours/ minutes of meditation do you need. Most people who are depressed and suffering from anxiety do not pray at all. You need to go to God and just pour out your heart, ask Him to take your burden and give you His yoke that is light. In this life we go through a lot and there are lots of temption, trials and tribulations that needs us to be rooted in prayer, the word of God and meditation on the word. You will realise how true to His word our God is, when you read it, meditate upon it and act on it in faith. this is one place you do not want to be left out on. Seek spiritual success with your power and with everything in you. That way you will be content and grateful for everything you have.
4. Emotional success
Your emotions determine a lot of things in this life. How you react to certain circumstances will be as a result of how you deal with your emotions. Have you seen people who just make a huge issue out of a little thing. Because they have anger issues and they mostly get out of hand. To be content in life you have to learn to be successful emotionally.
how to win cotrol over emotions.
I did a video on this. You should watch it to avoid ruining your reputation because of lack of cotrol. When you let your emotions get the best part of you, you will live to regret it. Yhis video also covers how to know your triggers and how to respond accordingly.
This is one of my favourite one. If you need to be content you must learn to cultivate your mind. It is your greatest treasure, whatever you learn will not be taken away from you. There should not be a stage in your life where you say you have reached all the success you wanted , and thus you are no longer reading or learning.
how to learn continually
During the times that we are living in it is pretty easy. We have learning tools all around us. But there are just as many distracting tools. So you need to make up your mind about what you are going to feed your mind. “as a man thinketh , so is he“. You should be mindful of what you feed your mind. Watch educational videos, listen to audios, read good books, and join communities like Bouncing Back ‘Up’ that are going to push you everytime you start to fall behind. Lifelong learning is the key for us young ladies if we want to live a happy and content life.
Real life success and contentment is guaranteed if you focus on growth in every sphere of your life. You will not get to the end of your life and realise that you didn’t find the joy ,contentment and success you were looking for because you focused on one area of your life only. You will not be rich, and sick with no one by your side. You will not be sexy and broke because you neglected your finances.
