The Horsemen

The tides are turning 
The horsemen are coming,
That which was once afar
That has caught up at last,
Folded tools to digging holes
Folded shirts to sweaty hands,
Hardy Horsemen!
Emissaries of Strength!
Bearing hope to feeble strides!
Bearing faith to doubtful hearts!
We waited, we prayed
We believed, we planned,
Time and his horsemen are coming
Harbingers of dreams come true;

We dared to believe in God
We dared to stand and fight 
We shall do our part 
When Time comes
Will surely do His part, Our God

W – Write Down Your Mantra

Write down your motto, mantra, slogan or declaration. It could be a board of motivational quotes and clips, book of motivational stories and words/verses of faith that help you believe. It could be a faith corner. Words, audiovisuals, picture collage of words, etc. It’s got to be something written down that you can read everyday to yourself. There is power in spoken words, but you’ve got to have the right words to speak. You may say, I will remember. I guarantee that you will not. The pen is mightier than the sword.

Let your mantra be the daily milk you drink every day, the constant fuel that ignites your fire and passion. Write it down, say it daily. Keep it handy or clip it by your mirror. You will discover how positive you will be. Writing it down always helps you articulate your thoughts to what’s really important. Check every successful company you know, you will find their motto. For countries you will find an anthem, for faith/religion you will find a creed. Don’t underestimate the power of repetition. What you say everyday will gradually become what you believe. What you do everyday will eventually become who you are.

I’ve discovered by experience that there’s something about spoken words of declaration. I have several of them written in a book and I cannot explain the energy, the positivity and the can-do spirit that fills my heart each day since I started it. It’s so refreshing and invigorating.

Reflections From Life #16

The total culmination of what or who I will be tomorrow,
The total perspective of how the world would view my life when I’m gone,
Inevitably depends on what I am doing with my time, my talents and myself now.

To achieve my dreams and aspirations in order to be that person I see in my mind, I have to daily check and ask myself,
“What am I doing now to get there?”,
“If I sum up my daily actions yesterday and today, can I confidently say they will lead me to my desired tomorrow?”

Dream. Desire. Achieve.

Daily Prompt: Total

Achieving Your Dreams- A to Z

This week I fulfilled 2 of my target weight loss goals. To register in a gym and secondly to run the 5K distance on the treadmill. I have achieved it!!! Talk about dreams, desires and achieving your dreams. And I must say I was inspired by Urban Mile and her blogs.

 

It felt so so good;  I was livid with excitement and it gave my weight loss program a buff. I decided to take a picture of my running data but in my excitement, my hands mistakenly hit the emergency stop when the distance remained 0.10km. I lost all my data- pace, calories burnt, etc. I felt a tad sad. That was my first ever 5K run. I wanted to treasure and preserve the moment with a picture.

Even though it was on a treadmill, I’m happy I tackled it and achieved it. But on a brighter note, I’m still registered in the gym so I know there will be lots of 5K runs, jogs and walks many days from now.

On that note, from the month of June I will be undertaking a project. It’s called the A to Z of fulfilling your dreams. This is just a fun way to highlight simple steps we can take to achieve anactualise our dynamic aspirations.

Maybe you have reached the pinnacle of your dreams, please pop in and give us an insightful comment from your wealth of knowledge and experience. Maybe you are still gathering momentum like me, to do all the wonderful ideas popping and bubbling in your head, then stop by every other day and see what’s up.

Remember, the dreams you desire can be achieved. And by dreams I mean, every good intention in our heart to make our lifes better and to bless others in the process.

Your future is bigger than your failures.
The beautiful ones are not yet born.
Your dreams are bigger than your despairs.
The beautiful ones are not yet born.
Your progressions are bigger than your past.
The beautiful ones are not yet born.

Dream, Desire, Achieve

These are the senior class students of Summit Academy Charter School, Brooklyn. Walmart gave to them and to many others a 4 year college/state university scholarship. This story was published on the 23/02/2017. To see the gift, scroll the timer to 7:37.

Their goals were not too many
Their passions was one thing
Their dreams were not too many
They desired only one thing
An opportunity for further learning
An opportunity for a brighter future

One morning they woke up
One morning like any other
An appearance on a reality show
An astounding disclosure!
A breathtaking gift!
The impossible became possible
The infeasible became feasible

Let us set our goals
Let us fuel our passions
Let us follow our dreams
For it only takes one day
For these to become reality
Let us dream, desire and achieve

“The proof of desire is pursuit”

Yes, I can!

I am capable of loving
Even though I don’t feel like loving sometimes
I am capable of giving
Even though I always want to hoard
I’m capable of accomplishing
Even though I feel weak sometimes
I’m capable of helping
Even though I want to hold back
I’m capable, I’m strong, I can do it
I can achieve the impossible
I can overcome the hurdles
I can go 10 miles extra
I can live to the fullest
I can rewrite history books
I can give it a 110%
Yes, I can!

Because,
I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength.
Because He lives in me, I am an overcomer
Yes, I can!
