STAY HUMBLE | BE HUMBLE | HUMILITY ALWAYS WINS

What is humility to you? How would you define humility in the society we are living in today? This topic is not only important, but is essential in all of our lives. As we are increasing in several areas, we must ultimately remember that success starts with humility. Do not underestimate the importance of being humble, especially when you are doing well.

YOUR CHARACTER WILL MAINTAIN YOU

Image result for your character quotes

When you have a good character, it shows. Through your mannerism, your lifestyle, your conduct. Everywhere you go, your aura will speak before your mouth does. In our generation today, where it seems that people are striving for financial success and popularity, I have understood the importance of being humble, not weak. There is a difference in humility and pride!

In my previous video, I spoke about the pressures of social media and how it is becoming a ‘source’ of ‘self-affirmation’ or where to feel approved. Social media is a platform and resource; it should not define who you are or cause you to change. Your proof is in the hard work behind the scenes, the tears, the frustrations, the silent rejections that will gradually enable you to get to where you need to be. Through your rejection you can create opportunities, and that is when character is birthed. You can always have a good character when everything works in your favour, but when things seem to not be working, that is where true character is tested.

With a great character, you are not only attracting blessings, but people will notice and will invest in you (the RIGHT people – not those who are going to take from you and run away). It would be really upsetting to have invisible pride and not deal with it at the early stages. No one is expecting you to be successful in a day. There is success and there is ‘SUCCESS’. The success I am talking about and determined to strive for is Godly success. No matter how relevant or popular one is, if God is not in the centre, the success will not last.

You may have the materialistic possessions, but not the wisdom to handle it. You may have knowledge but the character if not thoroughly checked can cause double-mindedness. Don’t let this be you. Be true to yourself. Love where you are, and allow each day to teach you something, because it will. When you have a good character, it attracts blessings that you did not have to work hard for; it also brings those above you to understand your goals, dreams and visions and can partner with you, just because of your character.

Do not be deceived, being humble does not mean allowing anyone to take you for granted. You can have a kind heart and be a firm individual at the same time. You have every right to protect your heart (Proverbs 4:23). Be true to yourself, and if you sincerely have an issue in dealing with insecurities, speak to a trusted friend before it tarnishes the character.

Remember this: character and beauty works hand in hand, and God will use people to help in your time of need. Do not stop being you because support isn’t coming or compromise your values. You will always get what you desire when you least expect it. Be open to change, and above all maintain your character. It will truly get you further than where you are now.

With love,

I WAS FEATURED ON BEN TV LIVE FT. MINAS DOLLZ TALK SHOW!

If you know my story, you’ll know why I smile so much, no matter what I go through. It takes real strength to keep being persistent.

When I look at how far I’ve come and the plans I’ve made thus far, I would always think I’d be further than where I am. But I’ve realised in the discovery season, it is God who has put me where I am today.

I’m not too early and I’m not too late; I’m right ON TIME! I’m embracing the present and being expectant for what it is to come.

Thankful and humbled for the way God uses people to choose me in sharing my story to be an inspiration onto others.

Thank you Ben Televisions ft. Minas Dollz for the opportunity to share my story on the vision of Authentic Worth, my writing career, women empowerment, mental health and social media.

When you have a vision, make sure you fulfil it. Don’t delay! It won’t be easy when you start, but it will be worth it in the end. Just because it hasn’t happened when you wanted it to, doesn’t mean that it won’t. Delay isn’t denial. 2019; you’ve done me WELL!

PS: ladies and gentlemen; Keep doing you; it suits YOU!👌🏾

J.U.N.E.

Half way down the year…it has been a journey. Before I move forwards, I want to take this opportunity to invite you to the book launch event: From Brokenness to Completion, held on Saturday 22nd July. To sign up, all you need to do is click on the link and enter your name and email address: https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/from-brokenness-to-completion-book-launch-tickets-34525473621. This event is for men and women so if you know of anyone that would benefit, please do not hesitate to let them know. Spread the word! 🙂

June has taught me so much. The thoughts that ran through my mind were to an extent mind-blowing, but it taught me some good stuff. It was as if my patience and trust in God was being tested. I didn’t know what it felt like to take rest, as I was always up at night reading my book, ensuring that it was immaculate before publishing. There were times it felt like I could not cope, but God always seems to find a way to keep me going. My mind would be at a place of peace, and then worry, and then rest, and then anxiety. You will realise that when you are near to finish a project, that is when the enemy comes in like a flood, trying to stop you from fulfilling your purpose. But I had to keep striving, acknowledging the fact that His Presence is with me in all I do. Was I tired, of course! My sleeping pattern changed at times, but I realised that in the end it was all worth it. All the tears and sweat really did work out for my favour.

Laziness and procrastination are the two most dangerous distractions that cause us to be comfortable. Life is not all about being comfortable, it is how you see the circumstances of life and how to create peace within the storm that gets you to the next level. I can’t emphasise enough on how 2017 has equipped me mentally, spiritually, and emotionally. I have had days where I felt like doing nothing, but the Lord keeps telling me to go forward, to not worry too much about what I can’t see happening right now. When we don’t see the result, we end up being frustrated and fed up. But in this season, I’ve learnt the beauty of letting go and allowing God to take full control. Not to be led by my feelings or my knowledge. I can’t be my own counsellor. I must stop trying to make everything work in my power and giving it to the One that knows me best.

Remember that it is okay to not be okay at times. You can cry, you can have your private space, you won’t always get it right, but through it all, you gain strength, wisdom and the ability to remain firm despite the uncertainty of life. June has taught me to pray harder, not just for my personal life, but for the world. The United Kingdom needs our prayers; so much is going on – people are dying unexpectedly, innocent lives are being taken, but I know my God doesn’t sleep. He sees all and knows all.

Finally, I want to leave you with this: when you worry what does it do for you? When you think about your life and the plans you made, did it happen for you or not? If it did, praise God; if it didn’t, how to you take it? It could be teaching you to have more patience and a thankful heart. Don’t ever look down on what God has placed in your heart, whether you see it working on your behalf or not. Every day is a sign that you have been put here for a purpose. Let the remaining months of 2017 teach you something valuable. Do not give up, no matter what you are going through. It will all be worth it in the end.

NOTE: From brokenness to completion – you are still a work in progress!
