Today is my Birthday, Yeah! I thank God for life. I'm totally grateful for His goodness and wonders in my life. I was inspired to do this feature just for you, yea! you because you're special. I hope this blesses you and you have so much fun reading it as I had fun writing it. Thanks for being there all this while on TLWO.

One decision I made that I’m totally grateful for
Going to Business School.
One unforgettable family experience this year
My cousin's wedding at Port-Harcourt (my brother, sister, most of my aunties and cousins, we were together at home for days with my lovely parents)-enough things to eat and gist about.
One personal goal of mine I achieved
Launching my own personal blog/site and the Girls Deserve project plus the Truekolours Hub site makeover.
One question that I always ask myself
How can I be more than I already am and create wealth in order to be a blessing to more people?
One opportunity that I would never forget
Participating in the Next Titans Reality TV show. It was God’s favour and determination that qualified me for a spot in the Top 50.
One funny thing I noticed being a year older
I realized that my pictures are kinda looking older, totally forgot that this would eventually come. I kinda miss some of my pic looks, but I plan to take lots of pics now for keeps for the future. Lol!
One conference that changed my life positively
True Living Conference 2016, It helped me realize how much I needed to stand up for my happiness and the fact that It was my responsibility to do so.
One thing I’m most grateful for
Life (In all ramifications)-the salvation of my soul, still getting to know God more, my amazing sister, my sweet brother, my one in a million mum, my lovely dad. My mentor and all my friends, all the jewels on the true jewels hang out, TLC 2016 Team, supporters and volunteers. Everyone that I have met this year that has been a blessing to me whether personally or by reading their books, the church and all the great men of God I tap grace and wisdom from Pastor Paul & Becky Eneche, Pastor Umoru, Pastor Ojo, Pastor Kumuyi and many others.
One phrase that has been a contributing factor to my success
Do it anyways.
One habit that has helped me so far
Promptness and pro-activeness in spotting and taking hold of opportunities.
One bucket list achievment
Being a part of a reality TV show.
One personal success advice for young people
Decide specifically and precisely what you really want from life, then desire it enough to make worthy sacrifices and make extra effort to work on it until it becomes a reality.
One value that I have stuck to all these years
I seek to give my best in all I do as I ensure that it’s only the best work that I permit myself to put out.
One relationship advice for young people
Hmm…marry for purpose and with purpose; don’t enter into a relationship with someone that you’re not proud of and don’t stay in a relationship that you’re not proud of.
One book I read that has improved my leadership ability
The 360 degree leader by John Maxwell.
One emotional advice for young people
Live a life of gratitude, learn to intentionally enjoy what you have and the people in your life in each phase; it has a way of making you appreciate the beauty of life.
One spiritual advice for young people
Seek God, seek His presence,seek His kingdom, seek His word for you above all your seeking. Because when you have access to His hidden treasure, you access truth by revelation which brings about light and direction; that’s what makes you go farther and faster in life cause you can’t leave where you are until you know what to do.
One quote I heard this year that transformed my life
‘’If you want to move in life, get anointed; if you want to keep moving, stay anointed.’
- Pastor Paul Eneche
One money advice for young people who want to retire early and wealthy
Invest your income, don’t buy liabilities; buy, build and create assets that generate cash flow. Keep at it until you can generate enough cash flow to cover your monthly expenses separate from your income.
One business advice that they won’t teach you in business school
If you want to start your business; start now, start small but start well. Ensure the business idea meets a need, solves a problem for you and your target market as well as creates a larger impact in the society.
One most important lesson I learnt this year
Plan and prepare ahead for the future that you see before it arrives, because most times the future will arrive unannounced.
One essential thing I want you to know
No matter where you are right now, remember that things can be better if you would live a life of ‘’More than ever before’’. More than ever before love God, study your Bible, fear God, praise God, reverence God, be submissive to God. More than ever before make more effort to connect to the right people, think bigger, grow your business, do things differently from the way you used to do them to get a different result. More than ever before give more time to building yourself and giving your best to life and your assignment. It would surely pay off in the long run.
Thanks for going through a piece of my life.
I would love to hear your thoughts. Please feel free to leave your comment and follow me on any of the social media platforms. Thanks a lot.
Don't get too comfortable concealing your sin cause those sins and things you're hiding would be out in the public one day. No matter how you think thoroughly about the fact that it is safer to conceal your sin than to expose it, the faster your prosperity will be hindered and your freedom will be restricted. Because he that covereth his sins will not prosper. Don't just live for today but live for tomorrow and take decisions from the perspective of eternity. The consequence of confession is far greater than the consequence of concealment. Think about this deeply and prayerfully act swiftly!
Don't get so passionate about investing in your outward look and building your charisma that you pay little attention to building your inner character. Your charisma would attract people to you but your character would keep them around you for a really long time. Be respectful, kind hearted, treat others well and show appreciation as the case applies. Your character would open doors that your charisma alone won't open. So build your character.
Be an original version of yourself, not a copy-cat of some one else. Nobody can play your part in the stage of life and in the path of destiny like you would. Be authentic in all you do and serve your purpose to the world without fear, intimidation or doubt. Let your light so shine that others may see your good works and glorify your Father which is in heaven. If people can see you in all you do and not God, then there is something wrong. The delivery of your assignment should make others ask who your Father is as well as should make them desire to know the God that you serve.
This is a reminder to you that no matter how things are right now and you feel a little bit stuck, don't give up on your dreams. Continue to push forward. Find a way, make an effort, go the extra mile. This is about making God's dreams for you, a personal responsibility. Let whatever is going on cause you to respond to the ability you never thought you had. Whatever happens keep taking those steps, they'll count at the end.
Don't get carried away by the things that don't matter, the temporary and peripheral treasures in Egypt when there are better things in Canaan. The whole point is that you should stay focused and purposeful when it comes to the vision of your life. Don't let anything distract you from your assignment and God's expectation of you. Keep your vision in front of you always, and if that project or that opportunity does not align with your assignment, it's okay to let it go.
Discover who you are, find yourself, do whatever it takes to explore and fully understand what you carry within you. I believe the discovery of God opens you up to the discovery of who you are. You can't go through life purposefully without discovering yourself. Simply put. In all your knowing, know God and know yourself.
Desires are really strong reflections of your passion. When I had the desire to participate in a reality TV show, it was one desire that I had but didn't know how it would come to pass until recently, when I had the opportunity and God did make a way to make this desire of mine a reality. Being a part of the Next Titan Reality Business Show was one experience I would not forget in my life time, though it was just the boot camp I attended, it was worth it. Desire is the first step to receiving anything, so in desiring, don't settle for less.
As you go through life, you'll come in contact with some people that would help bring out the worst in you rather than your best; they'll make your weaknesses and things you've left in the past like bad habits and attitudes thrive. It's important you walk away from them cause connecting with the wrong people would birth wrong choices.
