Hiya my awesome people, how are y'all doing? Before I forget, want to wish you a very beautiful new month of June. May this month be filled with things to jubilate about. This post should have been published few days back, but all the same I'm glad I am doing this now cause part of the reason why you get to read this post would be shared in the principle that I have applied over few months now and the results have been simply amazing. Forgive me eh, I know I was supposed to use a personal photo but I found this photo I took yesterday at the stage play in MUSON Centre quite intriguing and that's why I decided to use it. They say, a picture speaks a thousand words. ''It didn't matter who was in front of us, we were more focused on what we wanted to give attention to.'' 'I think a lady beside us, was trying to tell us something' The point is if you want to say YES to the life of your dreams, it requires extreme focus. Your focus in life determines what you give your attention to. Anything you don't focus on can never grow. Thanks to my amazing friend Somotochukwu for the free ticket. Back to the juice of the story, I'll share with you what I call CONFRONTATIONAL FOCUS, it's the simplest way to improving any area of your life.
As you go along life's journey, when you notice that any part of your life is not working or you're not getting the results you want to, or you're facing a recurrent challenge, never take a decision to neglect that challenge but make a decision to face it. Anything you neglect would most times go bad or grow worse. This principle of confrontational focus inspires focused attention and determined effort to a particular thing per time in order to get your desired result. I remember buying a biro one time, and I noticed that all of a sudden the tip became loosed and it was a little uncomfortable writing with the biro. The cover was always on top so I didn't bother to check it. In my mind, I was like this biro is obviously not good. It came to a point where I was greatly dissatisfied and I decided to take charge and solve this problem once and for all. And I removed the cover and checked and realized that the connecting screw gap was loose and all I needed to do was screw it so it becomes tight and yea..that was it, coming to a place of confrontational focus and concentrated release of energy on a particular thing.
My big announcement to you is that don't expect everything to go according to plan, don't also expect that when you get married, start that business or go into ministry or take that huge step, you would not face challenges; you sure will but the big difference would be how you handle that challenge, you can have a right perspective so that the problem leaves you better and not bitter. So the first thing, I want you to know is don't think it's strange when you're faced with diverse things that you didn't bargain for because according to the divine plan, you have already overcome. You're supposed to be a problem solver anyways., that's how value is created and that's how growth occurs. The challenge some people have is that they try to solve a predicament instead of a problem. The difference is that a problem is solvable and you can do something about it cause you have control over it but a predicament, you don't have control over it and you're not in the position to solve it. If you try to, you would end up being frustrated, because it can only be coped with. So I have been having network challenges with my GLO line for some days, I couldn't call out or go online and it was really frustrating. I'm glad that this was a problem and I could do something about it. For few days, I just complained about the issue and tried to fix it the way I could but on Sunday, I had to really pray about it and God reminded me of the principle of confrontational focus. Here is what I did:
This may sound quite usual but if you're serious about saying yes to your dreams, this principle should travel with you as you take steps to fulfill destiny. Take a good look at your life right now, is there any area of your life; personal, spiritual, financial, academics, marital or business life or even your relationships, that you're having challenges with; then it's time to face it one at a time. Don't be in a habit of overlooking or neglecting problems but learn to face those problems, if you want total victory. John Foster was right when he said 'The measure of success is not weather you have a tough problem to deal with, but whether it is the same problem you had last year' What you think about a problem and how you feel about a problem determines what you do about the problem and all this is dependent on your own personal choice. Some of you are living your yesterday and living last year because the things you should have dealt with from your past have been left unattended to and neglected and they are taking a stroll with you into your future to hold you back from fulfilling destiny or moving to your next level in your personal life, spiritual, career or marital life. This is the time to take a stand and face those challenges no matter how little they are and don't stop confronting it with knowledgeable focus until the challenge is solved cause you can only conquer what you confront. Wish you the best on your path to destiny. Gracias.a Dios.
