2018 SHM WEEKLY WISDOM TITBITS. WEEK 8. PARADIGM SHIFT.

 

SHM_PARADIGM SHIFT, 1

To advance in life, to move from one level to another does not start with the labour (physical) that you put in.
 
No, it begins as a mental exercise. In your imagination.
 
Sadly, this appears a bridge too far for many! Often times, most people want to work in ‘settled/stable” environment. What I mean is they want a state of certainty – processes ‘tried and tested’; all they need so is just slide in, and enjoy the ride. What fun is in that, just to be part of the crowd? Nah!!!
 
Dear friends, trust me, what advances the course of mankind is thoughts outside the box – leading to inventions, innovations, new discoveries. To achieve this, we need a paradigm shift – from the norm to destructive creations. This, successfully done, makes you a pioneer of sorts, a leader of thought – now that is becoming creme de la creme!
 
To achieve this state of mind, you need to develop your capacity to dream unconventional dreams. You will also need to develop capacity for the needed grit (read hard work) to get you there.
 
And then, be willing to learn from entrepreneurs/achievers/pioneers who have walked the same path successfully before you. You know, of course, that you do not necessarily have to personally interface with these successful pioneers to learn from them? Get their materials – books, cds, etc. Research them (use google or other search engines as a starting place), and carve your own niche.
 
We encourage to begin the journey to shift your mindset in the direction that nothing is impossible! Begin today dear friend.
 
We love you!

2018 SHM WISDOM TITBITS. WEEK 5. PERSPECTIVE IS HUMBLING

SHM_Perspective

 

This week, let us talk about PERSPECTIVE.

I am sure you are a confident, self-aware, goal getting person and I thank God for your life. You may even be a person on the up, not yet there, but going somewhere to manifest. I equally bless His holy name for you.

However, do you know that for many of us folk, our achievement(s) can be our greater barrier to achieving more? See, it is natural, isn’t it, for a ‘self-made’ person to look down on another who ‘has not arrived’? And for someone who is less successful to think those at the top ‘have life made’?

And that has led many into emotions that are very destructive; such as pride, anger, resentment etc. And these emotions continue to tear family and friends apart.

But I would like to suggest a solution if any of us is trapped in this. It is an exercise (don’t worry, you should not break a sweat) 😃.

Go outdoors, find an open space (good luck with that city peeps😜), and lie down. Look up, and what would you see? Vast expanse of the sky, vast beyond the limit of your gaze! Then remind yourself that above the sky you can see are other layers of stratosphere you cannot see; and above that another layer, and so on and on! Hallelujah!

That shows you how every human being is, in the grand scheme of things. Infinitesimal! A speck of dust! This should calm every ego, and soothe every weary soul. Perspective allows human beings to see that there are bigger, better things beyond ourselves, and should bring the wise to this realisation – all our world is really a stage! Apologies, oga Shakespeare.

You shall excel In Jesus’ mighty name. We love you!

2018 SHM WISDOM TITBITS. Week 4. WHERE DO YOU LIVE – THE PAST OR PRESENT?

SHM_LEXCONSULTS_future past present sign illustration

 

 

My dear reader, how has your year been so far? Mine has been great, praise God! This week, laid on my heart to share with you is that success and failure are dangerous in equal dimensions! That sounds strange, doesn’t it? If all we work towards is succeeding, how can we then interpose a danger in it? If all we aim to change is failure to success, why then glorify failure, right? Come along with me, and see for yourselves.

Success becomes a foundation to much more success ONLY for those who use whatever success they achieve as a stepping stone or leverage to other successes. Get your first, say, real estate, and leverage it to get more – that grows your portfolio, doesn’t it? But not many are able to turn success into a leverage for more. These are those who are easily satisfied with whatever it is they achieve. They build a monument to the achievement, and religiously relive it, year in year out!

They become so successful about the past that they fail to prepare for the future in the present. Many whose earlier successes turned to failure fall squarely in this same category.

Now for failure, the same principle applies. A lot wallow in the pain and regret of deals gone bad, or relationships gone burst! Some even wear it as a badge of honor! Come on, already! Your present life must not be held hostage by the past, so that your future can be better!

Every one of us is better served leaving things of the past just there – in the past; and pressing toward better marks! Forget the myriad reasons why you failed, learn lessons from the failure and MOVE ON, never looking back to mop or grumble. Same for successes, MOVE ON! Leave history the job of recalling and regaling others of your past successes. This is the secret of many omnipreneurs of today. {An omnipreneur takes an entrepreneurial approach to every aspect of life–work, family, community, health, finances, spirituality, and more.}

You shall excel In Jesus’ mighty name. We love you!

2018 SHM WISDOM TITBITS. Week 3. HOW MUCH TIME DO YOU SET ASIDE FOR THINKING?

SHM_LEXCONSULTS_Thinking, 1
To say we live in a fast-paced world is to state the obvious. We indeed live in a ‘microwave’ era, where not only do we live on the fast lane, but we curiously want solutions and results in a way food is made hot in a microwave. Sorry, but a past-paced lifestyle and effective, long lasting results are mutually exclusive!
 
Why?
 
For the same reason it takes about 9 months for a foetus to become a human child! For the same reason it takes a newborn baby time to talk intelligibly, walk, and develop other motor competences to last a life time!
 
So, in this era when we are constantly pressured to be on the move, we need to carve creative time for ourselves. At least for those who want to be in the top 10% of their professions or business endeavours – just to THINK. The quality of your thinking time would determine how far you can see and go in life or any thing you venture! I am yet to see any short-cut to this.
 
If you master the art of deep thoughts, you will discover that: (1) you will not be easily tossed around by the doctrine of men,
(2) your output into any thing you venture will become better refined. Often, the first ideas are not the best ones. It takes devoted thoughts to refine them,
(3) your earning power will increase by the reason that well thought out solutions attract better value.
 
So, be smart, live a life of deep thinking!
 
You shall excel In Jesus’ mighty name. We love you!

2018 SHM WISDOM TITBITS. WEEK 2 – HOW FAR CAN YOU SEE?

SHM_Imagination, 2
Every new year, goals are set, strategies are agreed, and many look to the year with optimism. My dear friend, I need you to know that there is a deep spiritual element to what is eventually achieved. Some cultures have perfected the art I am about to encourage you with, and have taken that deep spiritual angle for granted by not even acknowledging it; but it is there.
 
It has to do with how far into your future you can see? I dare say it is not enough for you to have goals set; the real work is how to translate what is on paper to reality (remember that in Week 51 of last year, I reiterated the need to commit your goals to paper?)
 
Simply, what we need to translate these set goals into reality is our IMAGINATION. It was the same thing the Almighty God used in His re-creation work. With the darkness on the face of the deep, He brought forth those things which were not as though they already were! That is the power of imagination. And I have discovered that the most potent achievers are those who are ‘slaves’ to their imagination.
 
See, nobody can see what is in your imagination, so there is little chance your strategies would be stolen before you deploy them. You can become whatever you want in your imagination, and no demon from the pit of hell can see what is in your imagination, if you master the art positively.
 
How to horn your imaginative skills should be your next question. The answer is in our topic this week – HOW FAR CAN YOU SEE? If all you can see is just 2018 vis-a-vis your goals for 2018, then I am afraid you cannot really be as imaginative as you need. See far ahead into the future. Imagine what you are planning will be like in the life of your generations unborn. That was what the Almighty God wanted Abram to do when he asked him to imagine his generations as the stars of the sky!
 
And it is for this same reason that successfully run organizations plan for periods of long years not for singular years! Reason why 1st world nations plan for at least 5 years ahead on issues! Nigeria too started on this road at independence with the FIVE YEAR DEVELOPMENT PLANS, but which again, bad leadership canceled on the altar of expediency. See how moribund our infrastructure became! So, all I have been explaining above is the reason why you and I must see farther than we ever have this year! And I am certain we would reap the rewards abundantly! So, my friend, HOW FAR CAN YOU SEE?
 
See you next week by His grace. You shall excel In Jesus’ mighty name. We love you!

2018 SHM Weekly Wisdom Titbit. Week 1. YOU ARE YOUR OWN CO-CREATOR.

20120724-095835.jpg

Welcome to a brand new year! I pray that your journey will be smooth, your story positively different this year. Lines shall surely fall for you in pleasant places, if …..

‘If’ what?

If you open your mind to your primary role. That apart from the Almighty God, you are the co-creator of your life! What do I mean? Yes, God did the work of re-creation (no, not creation; but recreation. Another day, another story). Anyway, I need you to accept that no man is the finished product at birth, not even Adam!

All God did was re-create the world in its basic form, hid minerals and resources for mankind to discover, gave mankind dominion over all other creatures with an advanced mental acumen; and expects us to create the kind of world we want to live in. Same it is for you and I.

Remember that all He created was perfect, and picture yourself in that mould. He gave your life a perfect workshop, your spirit, soul and body. For you to make of it what you will. And what we become is what we co-create – the choices we make, the competences we acquire etc. We lie on the bed we make, practically.

So, this first week of 2018, I need you to remember this – you are your own co-creator. Approach this New Year with that mindset and make something out of it.

You shall excel In Jesus’ mighty name. We love you!

2017 SHM WEEKLY WISDOM TITBIT. WEEK 52. HAVE HOPE

SHM_PICTURES_Good News Is Coming

 

 

Dear friends, can you believe that you are about to transit to a new calendar season? Wow! When did we congratulate ourselves happy new year 2017, again? 52 weeks already? The Lord be praised. Ever faithful, ever true God of the whole universe! We thank you, one and all for seeing us thus far; and also in advance for the great works you will do in and through us in 2018. Amen.

But maybe not everyone would think they have cause to celebrate and be thankful? Perhaps because you have not really achieved all you looked forward to, or received answers to all requests? Well, trust me, we may not see them yet, but heaven has truly moved! Wait for your manifestation in hope.

As for the coming year, what you call 2018 is what it will become for you. So, you have a role to play in preparation for the said year. For us on this mountain, 2018 would be our YEAR OF THE POWER OF GOD; and what ever we would ever get in it – spiritual, physical etc. would be directly proportional to the measure of His power in us. So, you see, we have our role to play in what happens to us next year.

Be rest assured though that your outcome is already determined in Christ Jesus! You can only end well. Why? Because His wish towards you are good, never evil; and He alone is able to bring all to an expected end! But what do you expect from 2018? There in all your set goals it should be! Not set any yet? GET TO IT NOW THEN.

All I encourage you with is to keep the faith. Have hope of a better 2018. As you see it, so shall it be! I prophesy!!!

OTHER APPRECIATIONS:

1. We thank you for following our tips for the past 52 weeks. Let us know if there are any weekly tip you miss and would want sent to you. It will be our privilege to so do.

2. We also would like to openly thank all our covenant partners for your continued contributions, counsel and support (particularly for our Ministry of Helps) to the advancement of our task. As your testimony already show, none of your will ever lack for any good thing.

See you next year by His grace.

You shall excel In Jesus’ mighty name. We love you!
