Mentorship: Whose voice will you listen to? Part 2

In my journey thru life, I have had many mentors. Others I have mentioned before and here are just a few more to show you how easy it is to seek out the right mentors for whatever stage you are in and how if this is applied, it will help you to achieve your life dream.

My heart desire is to be able to earn income from home while raising our young family. After working in the City of London for 16 years, which I enjoyed. I came to a conclusion that except you are pursuing your passion or doing something you truly love. You will always be searching for something else. “Your goals choose your mentors”.

Mentorship ~ Part 1

This entry is part 1 of 2 in the seriesMentorship

The world is full of mentors, just look around you.

I didn’t always have the wisdom to recognize them nor had the humility to learn from them. Everyone has a measure of pride, stubbornness or arrogance. I had my fair share of them too.

Whose voice inspires you? Whose voice are you listening to? Whose voice is going to make the difference in your life in 2011? It is up to you.

Mentors are very vital to achieving our life’s dream. You will never reach your dream without a mentor in your life. Without them we won’t get to enjoy the journey talk less of getting there.

A mentor is someone that has walked the path you are about to embark on and they can hold you accountable to achieving what you set out to.

Shine! It’s Your Time To Shine.

I came across a blog days ago and it just refreshes my soul and also reminded me of a promise I made to myself in 2007 to give myself the permission to SHINE.

We all need a little reminder from time to time, and since reading the blog, I have been reflecting all over again about that promise.

As a child, my mum told me that I was never shy at all. I am the last child that had to be dragged away from the school play kicking and screaming. I was the little girl that hugs the limelight at another’s child birthday party, which you would almost mistake for the celebrant.

Life happens and after one knock and several more, you start to shy away from your real self. Words spoken by others in anger can also crush us to the core. We refuse to take a leading role in our own lives and start playing the supportive role instead.

Comfort Zone – Leaving it behind

London was more than a place of residence, it was my home. London represented my journey to being a woman. I had my first job and paycheck in London, I became a responsible daughter sending money to my mother in Nigeria. I gained my freedom in London, I rented my first room, then my first apartment and later I bought my very first home.

A Letter To My Past

We have been friends long enough.
Today, I have made a decision that we can no longer be friends
Your friendship has become a pain I can no longer bear
Your company is suffocating to me
You have held me back long enough and today it ends
Though you pretend to be a friend
You were also my oppressor and my prison

The Past – Dealing With The Past

One of the weapons that the enemy uses against most of us is our past. He knows that you are likely to loose focus, become weak, depressed and distracted when your past is brought up. So he keeps bringing it up; just when you think you have dealt with it and overcome. It comes up again and again; remember he is an accuser of the brethren.

Have you found that he uses people in your life to bring up your past? Well meaning Christians, friends or family who know your intimate past will throw it at you with the intent to hurt you when you have a fall out!

First Things First

Welcome to 2011, I am excited and can’t wait to dive into all of God’s goodness for this year. It is the dawn of a New Year, so many decisions and choices ahead.

There is so much to accomplish and overcome this year. I don’t know about you, as for us we are going to be busy!

Juggling 2 toddlers and another arrival on the way, it’s almost here now. We are in the last trimester and we are so excited to smell the new life that Almighty God is entrusting unto us.

I am ready to run the race that is set before me and I am going to finish strong. I am not ignorant of the devices of the enemy and I hope you are not too.

Are You Ready For 2011?

As I was looking back on the vision set for 2010, I remember starting Bukville. I was scared and not too sure of myself but I have some really great people that truly believed in me.

Kim Dixx was my Life Coach. She is a great coach too and really played a vital role in the birth of Bukville. Thank you Ms Kim for having faith in me and for your wonder advice and encouragement.

Until I met Kim Dixx I didn’t really have an appreciation of what Life Coaching is all about. Ms Kim is awesome and simply the best.

The Season To Remember Others…….

Not so long ago I actually detested any festive holidays. It was yet another reason to remember my lonely state of mind and how I didn’t have this and that to fill my life with. It was a time to watch others living the life I so longed for.

Few years back I joined my family for yet another Christmas dinner, it was nice of them to include me. The truth was I felt out of place, sometimes I can’t help thinking maybe they feel sorry for me and can’t bear to see me spend another festive holiday alone with my Chinese fried rice and wonton soup.

The evening was going great, lovely food and nice company. Just then my nephew asked me a question. “Aunty why don’t we see uncle again”????

No More Cleavage In The House Of God

If we call ourselves Christians, shouldn’t we act like one? Christian means to be Christ-like. Are you truly portraying Christ in the way you dress?

The line that once distinguished Christians from non Christians has become severely blurred.

Planted and flourishing in the Church

The churches are learning to do business and keep our talents in-house, we have churches producing and recording their own home grown artist, record labels, publishing books, writing and producing films.

Gone are the days of selling out in order to pursue your God given talent. You can still use your talent to lift up His name and still keep it real.

2010 – The Year Of "DOING IT"

Enough is enough, its time to grow up and be an adult. There will always be something that prevent us from achieving our goals if we let it. I do understand that lives is about seasons and you should know what seasons you are in so that you can set realistic goals.

I Finally Caught The Mission Bug.

For as long as I have been around church folks, attending churches and being a Christian, It wasn’t until 2006 that I finally caught it.
I am excited and looking forward to my first mission trip. I don’t have one planned yet but I know it’s only a matter of time.
