I’m ready to trust You again

Didn’t you trust Him before? Have you come to the place in your life where you just feel like giving up and throwing in the towel? I know how it feels. Our environment makes it ‘look’ easy, but deep down, we know that what always glitters isn’t going to produce fine gold. The plans we’ve set to achieve are somewhat blurred and temporarily blocked due to the positions of our mindsets.

The uncertainty of life isn’t always predicted, and each day we wake up living with “what next, Lord?” The fear that comes when you least expect it makes you want to forfeit the process, not realising that when these unexpected moments of fear and anxiety rage, it is a strong sign that you are near the finishing line.

I don’t know what you are going through, but my encouragement for you today is: TRUST IN HIM. There is absolutely no problem or obstacle that is bigger than God. You won’t be able to solve problems in your own power, so hand it over the the One that has all power in His Hands. Put 100% investment in trusting God because He won’t let you down.

At times, when seasons in your life are silent, that is where He needs your full attention. Don’t shrug, don’t become restless; just be STILL. Breathe in and breathe out. Close your eyes, reflect and meditate. Receive the peace He wants to give you…are you going to take it? The decision is yours.

Let today be the day to trust in God again…you can still dream again, you can still live again, you can still hope again. Your faith should not be mistreated by your feelings. Let go and trust Him. It is your belief and faith that pleases Him.

Make the most of today; until we speak again.

HOW TO BE CONFIDENT DURING COVID-19!

 

There are so many thoughts that run through our minds of confidence in reference to how the status of the economy looks like, whether our businesses will thrive, if there will be a sudden recession, people losing their jobs, mental health issues and isolation. So many thoughts come up to mind.

However, do you know that what you think about is the results that will show forth? For me, I’ve had to adapt to different ways of thinking from discipling my mental ability to think positively, by focusing on what I do have which is the gift of life, a roof over my head, the ability to interact with family and friends and inner peace. During this season, the majority of people have many thoughts of how they will survive and what isn’t going right in their lives, which cause them to be distracted and underproductive.

Remember this: what you focus on, you magnify in your mind and in reality.

I want to give you SEVEN tips on how to be confident during Covid-19:

Tip number one: Always be thankful – no matter what you do not have, there is someone that wants your life. The little you have is a big blessing in the eyes of someone else. Contentment goes a very long way when you start in your humble beginnings.

Tip number two: Write down what you are good at – this is a great way to start bringing out your creativity skills and doing something different. For example, if you like baking and want to try out different desserts and see how many you can make; who knows, this could be a side business for you.

Tip number three: Invest in online education and e-learning. There is a lot that can be done in this season, particularly for those that are working from home or have a business. You can turn these online education sessions into live video calls including Zoom or Teams Microsoft to for further development inviting other people to join.

Tip number four: Don’t think about what you’ve lost – it isn’t always easy, especially when you’ve worked extremely hard to be where you are. For every loss, there is always a greater gain. Be willing to accept it and move on gracefully.

Tip number five: Get to know others virtually and reach out to family and friends – it is important to not only reach out to those you know but make friends with people you don’t know online. Social media is a great platform to do this. Who knows, that person could be an advantage to you in future and vice versa.

Tip number six: Renew your mindset – once Covid-19 is over, don’t think in your old ways. Embrace the changes that come your way and be willing to adapt to new methods and regulations. Be open-minded to what is coming your way and continue to keep that positive attitude at all times.

Tip number seven: Invest in yourself – this is extremely important. Self-care has to be one of the greatest priorities in anyone’s life. When you are good, everything else around you is good. Don’t neglect yourself because of where you are. Take care of your spiritual, mental and emotional space and see how life will get better for you. Be an influential being.

Let these seven tips help you cope during this season and know together we WILL beat Covid-19!

TWO YEARS AGO…

 

Two years ago, on Friday 11th May 2018 was the day my eyes opened. I remember getting ready for work, when the phone rang. I heard my sister crying downstairs and knew something was up. Whilst doing my make-up, I remained calm and rushed downstairs. Then I heard the words: Glory’s gone! I had a very strong feeling that was the case because there’s a type of cry one cries when it’s death-related. I remember heading to the train station and arriving to work. I didn’t even eat breakfast at home because I was trying to understand whole situation. A woman like me going to work the same day my big sister passed away…woah!

Moving on, here I am today. Two years later. I can’t say the journey has been easy or I’ll be lying to you. The journey, the risks, the silent tears have been demeaning, but the strength, joy, and wisdom that these past two years has brought to my heart are key lessons I’ll forever cherish. I decided to leave my full-time job to pursue my career in writing and public speaking. At the time my sister passed, I already had two books. The vision I had was to continue writing more books and run quarterly workshops. This vision became a reality. Without no financial backup or another source of income or job, I took the leap of faith and left what was extremely comfortable with a very good pay, to remember what my purpose is and why I exist. I couldn’t put a price tag on my sister; no amount of money is worth a loved one.

I did not want to keep doing the same routine; I wanted to impact lives. My vision to set up Authentic Worth is to help, support and bring worth back into people through storytelling and book-writing. Since then, I’ve managed to host several book workshops, social events, annual book launches, and most importantly, publishing four Authors books in 2019. I’ve also been invited from several TV presenters and companies to talk about Authentic Worth and my book-writing career which has been humbling, as well as promoting my books in WHSmith.

The vision is growing and many people are inspired to write books. I wrote my third book titled From Glory to Glory – a book dedicated to my late sister. Her name is Glory and I decided to name the book after her as a way for her legacy to live on. I decided to turn the book into an audiobook because of its impact and life-changing transformation. I knew there was so much in me that wanted to give out to people. Was I nervous? Of course. Did I have a plan? Indeed, I did and I still do! However, I didn’t allow my fears to entangle me; rather I trapped them by keeping it moving and not remaining complacent.

I refused to look at what I didn’t have…support or no support…income or no income, none of that stopped me. If it did, I would have quit, but I didn’t. Authentic Worth is still running and will be two years in October 2020. Don’t allow financial burdens, low self-esteem or lack of support to stop you from doing what you’ve been called to do. If the world hasn’t stopped, then why have you?

Authentic Worth is passionate and intentional about bringing worth and investing in aspiring authors to share their story with confidence and turn their pain into purpose. Many people are sitting on their gifts for fear that nobody will notice them, so they feel inclined to stay in the same position. I don’t want anyone to feel trapped; there has to come a point where you know what you want and go for it. I never knew the impact of not having a consistent income would do to me, but it didn’t take me off course. The results may not show forth as I intend for them to be, but step-by-step, I’ll endeavour to stand with those who are willing to share their story with boldness. Your story is your story and no one can take it away from you.

This is my story…I have been on a journey, and it has been a hard one. The decisions I’ve made to be the woman I am today is only by the Grace of God. I can’t do this on my own. I know what is ahead of me is greater than what I originally had in mind. I am not saying you have to copy what I did, you must apply wisdom first! Not everyone is called to do a 9-5 and not everyone is called to be an entrepreneur. They both have their advantages and disadvantages, regardless, it carries a lot of triumphs and a lot of pain, but it will be worth it! There is no position that is better than the other. Your purpose, however, should be more than money or position. It should transform the lives of others around you and bring change in a broken society.

Don’t sit on your gifts; you don’t have to wait until something drastic happens before you make a change. Look around you. There are many people wanting to hear your story and utilise your talents. I am glad and excited for all our 2020 Authors and looking forward to helping you publish your book and get it out to the world.

Remember: If you don’t believe in yourself or your vision, how will others believe in it? Don’t sit on your gifts.
