Let your setback be your comeback

Today I want to encourage you to have the mindset of a champion and a conqueror. After listening to a video clip today “UNBROKEN” a few things came to mind that I want to share with you. We all go through our own battles in life and everything isn’t always as easy and perfect as it seems. Somewhere someone might be going through a tough time or just need a word of encouragement facing a difficult time. I strongly believe that there is no better exercise for your heart than to reach down to others and lift them up, and this is the reason for posting today.

I want to encourage you today to have the confidence to follow your heart <3. It is time for you to start believing in yourself again. No matter how small or how big the challenge I want to encourage you to #ChallengeYourself. In life, in work, in your relationships, with your goals but most of all your personal life. For once focus on YOUrself.  Don’t let the noise of others opinions drown your inner voice. Find out what it is that you LOVE and have the courage to follow your heart <3. You will have some ups and downs and that is normal and part of this amazing journey. Don’t allow a setback to be the reason to give up. Let your setback be the platform of your comeback, you will be stronger if you learn from it! Most give up on themselves way to soon or just before the breakthrough. Don’t let your current situation derail your focus on the life that is destined for YOU.

YOU are unique, fearfully and wonderfully made.

The real challenge of growth mentally, spiritually and emotionally comes when you get knocked down. It takes courage to get back up when life knocks you down but it will be worth it.

Don’t stand still at the could haves and the would haves if it should have, it would have…

Fear kills hope, fear kills passion and I want to encourage you to step out of your comfort zone, break down the boundaries of {I can’t} that is so set in your mind and start living YOUR LIFE, YOUR JOURNEY, YOUR WAY.

STOP fearing and start dreaming. Don’t let your emotions rule you it is time to take charge over your emotions and thoughts, you can discipline your emotions.  So the next time fear comes knocking at your door you better not open…Before you speak something negative think about it and speak positive!

replace fear

Proverbs 18:21 Amplified Bible (AMP)
21 Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and they who indulge in it shall eat the fruit of it [for death or life].

Change is NOT EASY if it was everybody would do it BUT I’m telling you if you take control YOU WILL MAKE IT. You will be stronger & better. Respect yourself enough to walk away from anything that no longer serves you, grows you or make you happy. You will value your worth and respect yourself enough to live life with passion & drive.

Forget about yesterday come on people – It is NOW that matters, NOW NOW NOW!!!

You can – you will – You are a conqueror…LIVE YOUR LIFE PASSIONATELY

Much love,

Think about it…

Have you ever…

Got stuck in a moment where you find yourself sitting, pondering about the past and the future?

I’m at a road which seems to be a 2 way road, with dreams and visions, thoughts and things, goals and purposes all going through my mind at the speed of light…

Reflections of the past visions of the future…Do you sometimes think about the what could have been or what will be?

Ok so what is my point? Today or lets say the past week I took some time to sit down and let my mind wonder. Thinking about my past and the journey to where I am today.

Are you where you want to be in life, do you live your dream, are you truly happy where you are.

Well I must admit that this is a road less travelled.

Today I took a moment and watched a video clip of where everything started for me, stepping into the Corporate World – Fresh out of University uncertain about the things to come. This is where my personality was formed. This is where people touched my life. This is where I learned the fundamentals of striving towards excellence and last but not least where I was empowered as an individual to be the best in a secure team environment. Where I learned the values of Leadership…

This is where I spend my days, I can remember so clearly walking through that Business Park in the mornings towards my office being so deeply appreciative of the environment and the blessing to be an employee for a Group like Bosasa.

So why am I thinking about this today or every now and then??? Because I want to tell you today to never ever take things for granted. Every opportunity that comes across your path is there for a reason. Whether it is to reflect on moments of impact.

I can honestly say that my life up to now has been a journey one that I can reflect on and say today that I have given my best when placed in the positions to strive to be the best!

Don’t regret not living your full potential. I’m at the point where I’m sick and tired of the If this, If I have more money then, If I can only then, all the if if if if and if only!

Why do we live in a world where you live for the weekend? Are you really at the right place? Life is short we cannot always just think about the ifs! Be the difference you want to see. If you are not passionate about what  you do then I want to encourage you that it is time to get out of you comfort zone to start trusting God and to get in line with where you are suppose to be!

There must be something more…Have a dream & have a vision but most important don’t neglect the now. Don’t keep your eyes so focused on the future that you forget about the NOW!
