Lesson 6: Know yourself; be yourself


There is more to knowing yourself than just knowing your name. There is a saying that you cannot be effective without been authentic.  To go through life excellently,its important to know oneself.

How do I mean?
Things work very differently for people,which is because God has made each one of us uniquely. For some people, its so easy to read up 10 pages of a book in about 30 minutes while some others will take up to 60,90 or even 120 minutes.  Personally I realize how much of time i needed to spend on certain things before i can come out with something more than average or just good.

Knowing where you stand as a person in your relationships, in how you handle issues, in how to even take care of you is very important . This is because its a baseline for your improvement or growth.

I had to get to that point where I eliminated certain things from my schedule just to focus on doing some other things better. The more you function from the standpoint of an understanding of yourself,the easier it is for you a to approach life.

Over and again I have had to learn always to be sincere to myself :) That's the only way you can get the best out of life!!

Being yourself is a product of knowing yourself. This part may be a struggle especially when you are in the same environment as you used to be. But here's where a fight for yourself comes in because,truth is where ever you go,you will have to prove yourself by been yourself. lol. It's like transitioning to a new normal. Its especially hard if you have lived all your life being something or someone else i.e not exactly knowing yourself. There will always be a pull towards who you used to be.

There's a comfort and ease that comes from understanding how your person works! When you know it well enough,it will speak louder than even your words. Self checks help you to maintain who you are as you grow.

Doors Do Open

Have you ever felt like you have exhausted all of your options and you can’t seem to find a way out?  Or you know that there is more that can be out of a case you are on? I can’t imagine what the widow whose husband left some debts for her to pay before he died must have gone through.

Wait, you think all that happened is all there is. In the sense, you have pressed all your buttons and made all your moves. Knocked all the doors you know and made the calls. You now think its over. You think there’s no way out again? Be there! You seem to have forgotten so quick that God is the one that makes things happen. Look at the widow whose husband left her in debt. She was broke. No money no possession my sons up for sale kindof broke. Her two sons were going to be taken captive to pay for the debts that was on ground. Of course she was devastated. She had no possession to sell to get some money. The only thing she knew to do was to go meet Elisha who her husband served with. I imagine she had…

Growing Intentionally

Associations.

Good day everyone.
I want to share with you today one thing that is very much important in our lives especially in this time and age.  It's about associations.
It is not everyone your paths get to cross that are ordained  to be in your life.  It is not everyone dressed in the robe of what you desire that are the originals or that are meant to remain in your life.
You see, in this time and age where people dress to impress and speak for respect, we need the wisdom of God and the spirit of discernment to dicifer between who is true and who is not. To dicifer between who should remain in our space/sphereand who shouldn't. Just like a human would put on the Mickey Mouse costume, there are people who create impressions that are not necessarily who they really are,there are also those who seem like should remain around our lives but in the real sense, they're meant to be far from us.
