on't just put words on paper. Do something about it. Basking in the euphoria of that great idea you received is not enough, work to bring it to manifestation. Don't allow procrastination crush your destiny. It is a thief of dreams. A boy told his father, "Dad, if three frogs were sitting on a limb that hung over a pool, and one frog decided to jump off into the pool, how many frogs would be left on the limb?" The dad replied, "Two." "No," the son replied. "There are three frogs and one decides to jump, how many are left?" The dad said, "Oh, I get it, if one decides to jump, the others would too. So there are none left." The boy said, "No dad, the answer is three. The frog only DECIDED to jump."

Does that sound like last year's resolution? It is not enough to decide, take it to the next level by acting on what you have planned. Greatness comes to the doorstep of those who will leave the realm of decision to that of performance. It is not enough to have a mental picture of where you are heading, take steps to create it. Let your dreams find expression in reality. Get up from your rocky chair and act. Time will not wait for you. The most dangerous of all delusions is that there is plenty of time. Think and act now. Find your space and fill it.

When a fish is taking out of its natural habitat, it will die a natural death. Clip the wings of a bird and you have succeeded in clipping its destiny. There is a 'natural habitat' that God has created for you to manifest. Locate it and let your gifts manifest there. A fish can never fly and a bird can never live under water. Discover that thing that makes you unique, create a niche for it and reign. You must be persistent. The baby eagle learns to fly by many failed attempts. Don't give up! Robert Brault said "Stubbornly persist and you will find that the limits of your stubbornness go well beyond the stubbornness of your limit"

Do you know your purpose? What is your Self worth? Your Self worth is not measured by your net worth. Your values are not determined by your valuables. The number of cars, the palatial mansion, the 'fat' bank account etc all these may disappear within a space of time but if your value and self worth is solid, no matter the storm that confronts, you will overcome. Take the life of Job as an example: his net worth and valuables were all gone within a space of time but his values and self worth were rock solid in the face of adversity. The end of his life was far better than his beginning. Whatever you have lost in the past has gone forth as a seed for a greater harvest for you. Keep your head high. Don't let that challenge break you. You have been destined for the top and when God takes you to the top, you will become the topic that is why it is important for you to know God's purpose for your life as nothing in this world can compensate for not knowing His will for you. God bless you big
