You can do it!

“What do you mean, ‘If I can’?” Jesus asked. “Anything is possible if a person believes.”

Mark 9:23 NLT

Sometime in 2016, i was planning my book launch(Yes, i have published a book, will introduce it to you guys later on), i had to send out invites to all the persons i felt will be useful in one way or the other on that day.

I had just moved to the city. Barely 6 months of living and i was already planning a big event. Due to the magnitude of the logistics involved, many felt it was a pipe dream and did not hold back in letting me know. I heard things like, ‘noone will listen to you’, why bother yourself, you cannot do it. Others before you couldn’t do it, what makes you think you can do it? ‘Your confidence is too much’.

The climax was when i went to submit the invite to a big personality, a D.G, and his secretary said, he never attends any event. She had this ‘ what level do i have to come to the office’ look on her face.

At this point, i was at the brink of tears but i persisted. I knew what i wanted and i was going for it no matter what.

To cut the long story short, i went ahead and the lunch was successfully beyond my imagination. I did not have to compromise in anyway and It opened several other doors for me.

As i sit and think back, imagine if i had listened to the naysayers and given up even before i tried.

I came to realise people cannot see beyond their mindset. You cannot expect someone who has never used an airplane to tell you how the experience is or a person who does not know how to swim to teach you how.

Your dream is for you alone. It is dangerous to tell it to many persons in the early stage because there are pessimistics out there who might talk you out of it by giving you all the reasons they think it can’t be done by you.

People who tell you, it can’t be done is because for their lack of imagination or inability to see what you see, there is no way in their mind it can happen.

I have learnt to keep my dreams to myself, i tell only people i know can encourage me in one way or the other and even if i encounter ‘It is impossible ‘ set of persons, i pay no attention to their words.

This does not mean i go about taking steps without calculating risks but i know when God gives me a vision of what to do, He has made provisions for it so i don’t need confirmation from men before i go ahead.

You are your biggest motivator. You push yourself up and get the work done. Your vision is yours alone. The simple minded cannot understand so you only slow yourself down or quench your flame by listening to them.

My favorite mantra – ‘i can and i will.

Get up every morning and say to yourself, I can do it. Just as Apostle Paul said, I can do all things through Christ that strengthens me.

The Lord is your strength is not a cliché but an active word. Whenever you need Him, you will find Him there.

It is said ‘The earth is the Lord and its fullness thereof… He has given us dominion over all things. What do you think this entails? You are an unstoppable force with God in you.

The force of determination and focus can take you anywhere you desire to be.

This is to shake YOU up. What have you held off because you thought you couldn’t do it? Or everyone around you seems to think your idea is farfetched?

Your circumstances is not your limitation neither is your challenges.

The only limitation you have is your imagination. For God said to Abraham, as far as your eyes can see, i give to you.

No matter how many wonderful things God wants for us, unless we can rise beyond our mental/physical inhibitions and become determined to have them, they will pass us by.

We can’t do everything but we can do anything we have being called to do.

Today is the day you tell yourself it is possible. Don’t be afraid to pursue your purpose. It is time to stop talking yourself out of the things you want to do and start talking yourself into it. The start up may not make sense but the harvest will.

What is that idea you have nursed in your heart and sure God is calling you to? Now is a good time to start working on it. Break it down into bits. Take it bits by bits and execute it. Don’t trust in yourself as your strength may fail you, put all your confidence in God, the unfaillable One. You can do it. Go for it.

Stay blessed.

You are loved 💜💛💚
