Authentic Audacity

Everyone is wired to win,
but pain is a part of the package
Everyone is beautiful within,
and every mess passes a message.

2020 has been a year of countless shades of grey and grace for a lot of people around the world. Some folks believe that it’s a year of strange storms that had turned warriors to worms.

My friends, whatever the atmosphere around you looks like, I believe that you will certainly set your emotions in motion to cause a positive shift if you ignite the forces of faith within you. 

The forces of fear will tell you loud lies but it’s up to you to either retreat or reply with timeless truths. Whenever the storms of life and the shadows of death show up to shut you down, be audacious!

Don’t stay silent,
speak to the wind and the waves,
tell them that you are unsinkable.
Speak to fear and failure,
tell them that you are unbeatable.
Speak to sorrow and stress,
tell them that you are unbreakable.
Speak to losses and limitations,
tell them that you are unstoppable.

If you get weak or weary, feel free to rest, reset, re-strategize, relaunch and reach for greatness, but don’t be tempted to quit the quest. You are made to manifest, you are created to conquest.

I am glad to inform you that you are a carrier of authentic audacity, and this kind of audacity often gets amplified by adversity.

Life is scripted to be a potpourri of pains and pleasure. There will be highs and lows, whispers and roars, many many shades of shadow. However, you are a key player in this theatre called life. Your heart is the centre stage and the world is your audience. Everything on earth can hear and heed your commands.

Speak to your storm, and sail steadily. You will win.

Make it a habit to speak victory all the time. I recommend that you get a copy of Whispers of Winners, a compilation of positive affirmations that attract all-around victory.

Newsmakers and Noisemakers

There are two kinds of influencers in our world; the noisemakers and the newsmakers.

According to the World Health Organisation, in 2018, there were an estimated 405 000 deaths from malaria globally, compared with 416 000 estimated deaths in 2017, and 585 000 in 2010. On the other hand, according to reports on Wikipedia, it is estimated that over 250 people are killed by lions every year.

Mosquitoes have killed more humans than what lions can boast of, yet the sound of mosquitoes is nothing compared to the roar of lions. Impact has never been about the size, sight and sound of a thing but it’s capacity to have an evident effect.

The lion is regarded as the king of the jungle, mosquitoes don’t even have a place in the jungle, yet, statistics show that mosquitoes have more impact on our world than lions. Influence has nothing to do with titles and labels.

The roar of a lion shakes the earth but the bite of a mosquito causes death (if not attended to). The difference is found in the capacity to have put more emphasis on influence than tags and titles . The sun does not shout to shine, salt is not seen in meals but its effect is prominent.

Who is a newsmaker and who is the noisemaker?

Newsmakers are those who make the world a better place with their beauty, brains and brawn, but noisemakers are those who make the world a bitter place with their attitude, abilities and actions.

Life is beautiful because some angels decided to dwell on earth and make this world an extension of paradise, I guess you are one of them. These angels are newsmakers. They beautify everything and everyone around them.

Life can also be awful just because some terrorists refuse to stay in hell, they decided to become tourists in this realm. These folks are noisemakers, they wreck everything and everyone they come in contact with. Noisemakers shout, newsmakers shine.

Every human has an innate capacity to be powerful and impactful irrespective of their size, strengths and setbacks. However, positive impact requires a certain amount of distinct ingredients.

What are the Ingredients of Influence?

  • Intentionality: this is the power of minds to represent, or to stand for something significant. What do you stand for? Everyone is born with unique skills and talents but not everyone maximizes their potentials. Intentionality positions you to find your purpose and helps you attract the right people. Find your voice and reach your audience with a clear purpose.Ingenuity: Originality is the spice of true impact. Imitation is not just limitation but suicide, a person who refuses to be distinct will always live as a ghost in the market place. Carve a niche for yourself. Build a brand.Integrity: Don’t fake it till you make it. A lie is lame, it needs more lies to stand for a while, only to fall and fail eventually. To have indelible influence, be honest to a fault. Do you thing without pretence or falsehood.Information: you cannot give what you don’t have. Talent has never been enough. The more you know, the more you grow. Invest in getting the right information about your scope and sphere of influence. When you develop yourself, you deliver better.Inspiration: When you have a powerful ‘love language’, even your mess will become a message. See the positive side of everything and help others to see beauty even in ashes. Be a problem solver. See the best in others and help them achieve it. Add value to life with your voice and your vision.

I challenge you today to be a newsmaker and not a noisemaker. You are here to happen, you are made to manifest.

I Will Come Out as Pure Gold

Through the valley of the shadow of death,
through the hills that stole my breath;
God has been my salvation and strength…
I will surely come out as pure gold.

I often sit under the fountain of fears
and sometimes feast from the trees of tears;
God will restore all my wasted years…
I will surely come out as pure gold.

The stormy blast once sank my soul,
the grave of guilt almost caged my goal;
God’s arms of love keep me pure and whole…
I will surely come out as pure gold.

When black and white turn to gray,
when the golden scepter turns to clay;
God will turn the darkest night to day…
I will surely come out as pure gold.

When beauty gets too blurry to behold,
and it seem I am fast getting old…
When bitter battles betide, I stay bold.
I will surely come out as pure gold.
