Trust your week is coming on well. For those of us in Nigeria my great country, how did you celebrate the Independence anniversary? Fifty one years! Time flies. While a lot of us think there is nothing to celebrate, I dare say that we have a lot to be grateful for, having fought a civil war for instance and still a nation? Come on! We should be grateful. A long way to go I agree, but shouldn’t we also be able to say we tried where we indeed have tried? Do something today, to honor your country, where ever you are in the world okay?
Now to today’s post. Just like we have been looking at our nation and a lot of us are saying there is nothing to celebrate, today alone, I have spoken to at least three people who are feeling that way about their dreams. You have done all that you know how to do within your power, yet it seems like, it is a continuous struggle and that nothing is working… I know that feeling, and I have been there a number of times myself.
Today, I want us to take a look again at how we have fared running with our dreams, and acknowledge the successes we have had in the past. This is not so we can leverage, this is so we can say to ourselves, “Well done! You have done well.” The Africans have a proverb about the Agama lizard, who jumps from high up the sky, and even though his feat is not acknowledged by those around him, he looks at himself and says well done.
So even though this is a very short post, I want to ask you, looking at your past successes; don’t you think you deserve a well done from yourself? Now let me quickly point to the fall out of taking time to look at your successes, you become aware again, that you have what it takes to do it, and therefore, receive the motivation from yourself to go at it one more time.
So I join you to say, well done! You have done really well, NeverTheless.
Till next week, enjoy and bask in your success, you have earned it.
