If you have the feeling that you are cut out for greater things than your current lifestyle is, fret not. Greatness begins with dissatisfaction! You are right and on the right track. Do not brush that dissatisfaction off. Do not shy off either. Rather resolve to pursue it and fulfil it. Please do. Yes, have the courage to walk down that path. Have the courage and boldness to go for that which you desire for your life. It’s neither too late nor too early my friend; your ambition is well placed. Your future greatness is calling unto you.
Now simply prepare self. Be ready and willing to do what it shall take to realise it. Be ready to gather the relevant knowledge on how to unlock this greatness.
You can start by listening to self so you can better understand this desire. Doing this will make you comprehend the passion burning deep within! Understanding is a weapon towards getting knowledge. The knowledge you require. This will give you perspective, and help you know what you don’t know, to achieve that which you currently desire. Information is power, do not underestimate it.
Awaken to the greatness burning within you. Desire to unlock it. Stir it up. Focus on its pursuit. If you lack the knowledge of how to go about things, despair not. DO NOT DESPAIR. Again, do not despair. Never forfeit your desire to accomplish great things. You can do it. You shall do it, only IF you don’t give up. No one was born for a life of mediocrity and average living. Simple living is not the portion of the ambitious. The ambitious were meant for bigger, greater things. They are the influencers and changers of the world. They are cut out for greater things. Bigger things. New things. To bring forth better things and transform the world; first through self then the greater majority. When they succeed, things and people around them shall change too. If you desire more from life, if you have a passion, if you have a dream, if you have a desire to be better and make something more of your life, then YOU fall in is category. You are an ambitious individual. You are part of the people am refering to. Yes, I am talking to you. Listen. Listen well. YOU were not born for a life of simple living, and average results and achievements without recognition and excellence! You were born for more. If by now you feel something stirring within you then you are exactly whom am talking to. This note was meant for you. Yes you. If it wasn’t it wouldn’t even be making any impact within you whatsoever. You would have already found it boring to read and would have stopped here! If you proceed then you have a deeper calling, a greater calling. A calling to do and be more than you currently are. Pay attention.
First and foremost, you were born for greatness, regardless of your current situation and states, even age. Yes some think they were born to live a plain life, have a plain life, and die a nobody – but not you. YOU were born to impact the world and leave a positive mark some day, one day, eventually. It does not matter how you currently perceive yourself or how you view your life currently, or where you currently stand in life, as long as you have this desire for greater things, for accomplishment some day. It shall come to pass. Have a dream bigger than your current state of life. Be ambitious. Stay focused, and if you arent, then be focused. Awaken to your greatness. Realise it. Absorb it. Believe it. Know it. Then prepare self!
Desire greater things even if you don’t know how you’ll achieve them or accomplish them. Let that not be an excuse or reason not to dream BIG. Let that not bother you now, you are simply in the first stage of awakening. Don’t be too hard on yourself by thinking am not referring to you because I am. Do not, and never ever settle for an average life. Never. Do not accept what you currently are and settle for that, especially if you have the feeling that you can be more and deserve more from life because if you think you deserve more or should be more then you definitely are having the right hunches, and you can achieve it. You shall achieve it. You will achieve it. You can, and definately will make it. There are prerequisite conditions to be met though: a firm belief in self, an unwavering resolve to settle for nothing but the best, and finally, a passionate ambition. Keep in mind that nothing worthwhile in life comes on a silver platter. ‘No sweat no gain’ is not a mere proverbial phrase; it contains truth in it. It is not meant to be a discourager rather a motivation for those who have made up their mind. To the lazy and unambitious, it is an excuse not to aspire for greatness, especially if one lacks dedication. I believe you fall not in this category of persons, and if you are I hope it is just but for a moment. The time for change is now. Greatness is calling!
Live your life in your own unique way, believing that your current state and situation is just but temporary…awaiting an impending eventual metamorphosis. It is not the sum total of your life, neither does it imply your eventual position in life. Inshort your current state is not the final chapter in your book of life, neither should you make it so.
Do not settle for anything less than a bigger dream for your life. That is not your portion. Do not settle for an ordinary life. You are not ordinary. Simply add the ‘extra’ and you shall be extraordinary. Never settle for a mediocre life. Don’t. Once more I beseech you: do not settle for an ordinary life; you can be and do more if so you decide. Yes, change begins with a decision from you. Where you stand today shall determine where you seat in future. Do not compromise or settle. Not for anyone or anything, not even me. Do not go for the common things in life, be ambitious: aspire for more. ‘Normal’ is boring.
Do not settle for an ‘ordinary’ life if you desire a better and greater tomorrow for your life. Do not take an ordinary path in life if you really desire better things, greater things, extraordinary things from life.
Avoid the normal ordinary path chosen by most people by default either out of sheer laziness, unconcern, self doubt or lack of a sense of self worth. Make a decision to be unique and different when it comes to your life and future welfare…be passionately ambitious with your life. Settle not for just any path when it comes to your life. If you personally do not care about your future welfare nobody will. Not even your parents…they are merely doing their part according to THEIR own standard and vision. That is why your parents can only take you to school but you have to do the reading by yourself. They pay the school fees but YOU do the going to school. They buy the uniform but you do the wearing…I believe you get the drift by now.
Remember, any path you take in life is a path; and eventually it must lead somewhere…whether to your detriment or progress. Choose a higher calling and purpose for your life! Greater purpose. Fear nothing, and no one when it comes to your future greatness. Doubt nothing. Especially yourself. Pay no heed to anyone trying to discourage you or distract you on your new path, if you have eventually decided to do so, and gained the boldness to go for your dreams and pursue them to achievement . Which I hope you have so decided: have you?
If you lack a motivator or someone to encourage you if and when you do decide to embark on thid new path to greatess then do not be discouraged my friend: I am here for you, sincerely!
Just do me a favor and show some seriousness. Probe your worth to self and the world, then to me. If you have truly made the choice to pursue your dreams and you are seriously passionate about it then you can count on me not only for moral support, encouragement, motivation but also for inspiration. I believe in you, friend. I believe in you stranger. I do. Sincerely, I do.
Infact I so believe in you that you can inbox me anytime concerning any setbacks and/or challenges you face along the way and once I receive it we shall tackle it together. Remember; two heads are better than one, BUT believe in yourself most. Please do. I urge you. I beseech you…
#Let the journey begin…better must come!



Plans. Desires. Wishes. Friends. Agendas. Vain hopes. Wants. Longings. Needs. Ambitions. Aspirations. A yearning. A cry for greatness, from deep within. A resolution. To take action, and be procreative. The final embarking on attaining the goal. Success in the pursuit. Unforeseen circumstances. Emergent challenges. Ah the frailty of human ego, efforts and endeavors. Oh the intriguing intricacies of the man in pursuit of a dream. Burning with an unquenchable fire to at least take action and quench the desire.
Man plans in the comfort of his solitude or in the company of his comrades: to him all shall go well. Every aspect of the plan shall unfold as per the nitty gritty details contained in his mental blueprint. The blueprint of how to go about fulfilling his ambition for success and greatness. This, within, was a great urge and desire. It was long overdue. The time had finally come. It had to be done. Implemented. To him not one bit of his grand plan was bound to fail.
“How can it, with all this meticulous planning?” he reckons, reassuring self.
Failure is not an option or a probability to him. In fact it is far from his mind and absent in his attitude. Majestically and almost arrogantly he reassures self, anxious for execution.
Far from his mind is the thought of any hitches or setbacks. He does not even fathom or contemplate failure in any form, shape or shade. Every stage of the process will work out, like a well oiled machine. The bar he sets so high for self with nothing but the best result and feedback anticipated.
Then comes the execution stage. Yes, the long awaited implementation stage.
At first things go well. The initial stage of the whole plan works out well. Things seem bright and optimistic. He is reassured of his positive outlook concerning the project. Yes, he thinks all shall be well and end up well. The initial smooth flow of the project boosts his ego and sends a wave of confidence through his body, massaging his ego and reassuring.
His zeal increases. Gradually he starts to become corky and overconfident. The initial smooth flow of matters slowly clouding and eradicating any minor traces of caution and hesitation. He begins to become careless and lax. Now he acts as though he has done this many times over, even though it is but merely the first grand project he is executing.
Phase two of the project. Minor setbacks begin to emerge. The plan experiences hick ups. suddenly things are not going as planned. It is no longer smooth sailing all the way as previously assumed.
He gets jittery and concerned. Slowly begins to get worked up. Cannot believe that setbacks and challenges are rearing their ugly head in his project. Try as best as he can, he can not adequately contain the situation. He had not expected any setbacks.
Now he has to problem solve. Unfortunately he was not adequately prepared for any such event or the necessity to take any ‘trouble shooting’ measures. He had not planned for unforeseeable circumstances, neither had he put any plan in place to handle any emergent complications nor had he a concrete plan to diffuse the impasse. In short he has been caught off guard.
Panic suddenly sets in as his mind and body enter the ‘fight or flight’ dilemma. Flight wins. Discouragement. He tries to put on a brave face. Tries his best to maintain his former optimistic composure, and positive outlook.
Phase three. Things begin to fall apart. The going gets tough. The tough, situation, seeming not to be going or improving.
“What to do?” he wonders.
Within, he wishes for a return to smooth sailing; the former days of future optimism and ignorance of pending future hiccups. Frantic, he looks around. Desperate for a solution. An immediate and effective solution to the current predicament and challenge being faced. He thought he could do it on his own, thought he was better off alone. How wrong he must have been…or was he?
As the reality of his predicament dawns on him, he silently reflects on the new turn of events. He decides to engage his mind. His inner eyes slowly begin to open, as though he is in meditation, yet merely in deep contemplation. Thoughts incessantly pop and criss cross his mind; blatant condemnation, consoling inspiration, vague suggestions and incomprehensible solutions. All in a bid to help his cause yet unwittingly confusing him further.
He needs and urgently requires help from any quarter or source, including self. He is even willing to pay for it. Yes: solutions, like commodities, can be bought.
A slight head ache begins to throb in his head. A thin streak of perspiration trickling down his temple. He wipes it anxiously with the back of his hand. He lets out a long slow gentle sigh in desperation. He licks his lips and smacks them as he cracks his fingers, signaling the onset of his wits end. It seems as though the once confident fellow is slowly being humbled. Against his will, he is being served a full plate of humble pie, with fork and knife to devour it. Ironically, he refuses to take a single bite…and so shouldn’t you!
Pause and take notes. You see, unlike our character above, most of us accept our predicaments and allow circumstances to seal their fate when they think they have reached a dead end. In the midst of desperation and lack of a coherent encouragement from any quota or even self, most would rather give up and eat ‘humble pie’ rather than weather the “temporary” storm of their setback. I have put the word in quotes because those who give up realized not that the problem or setback was just that…temporary. Regrettably though, they sealed the fate on a promising and attainable goal. How tragic.
The bounce back phase:
