I am pretty sure that you have heard the expression; ‘you can run but you can’t hide’. Well, what if we stopped running altogether and learnt the art of hiding? This is a question I have been asking myself lately. Seriously, how else can I elevate what I am already doing without doing any thing new?
What if you took a gamble on you and actually decided that you are worth the risk of that further investiment in time, energy, effort, branding or even marketing? What if you decided that you have hobbied enough and it is time to vocation for real? Yes, I know you see it as only a hobby but what is the difference between your hobby and the other man’s vocation? Do you see my point?

2018 feels very stale already, or is it just me? Welcome!
For quite some time now, I have had to follow hard on this journey 80% of the time not sure where I am headed. Most people think of me as the queen of clarity but the truth is, while I am not confused about what I should be doing nor wonder if I am doing the right thing, because I know I am, I can not claim that I know what the day will bring or why. The difficult part is not trying to discern what direction I am meant to travel. The difficult part is despite the fact that I know where I am headed, I am never certain what will come up on the way. It is kind of using a GPS, you can be sure that if the GPS is not broken it will navigate you to your destination. Occasionally, it might even tell you that there is an unusual congestion along the way and suggest an alternative route, what it cannot tell you is what might have caused the delay or congestion you are likely to face.

The season we’re currently in is one of the most complex of seasons because it is filled with so many activities. On one hand, we’re gradually winding down and wrapping things up for the year and on the other hand, we revving up for the New Year. Things cannot be any more complex than that, can it? So much is going on and if you’re not careful, you’ll get swept away by the tide of activities and forget what is important to you, especially in this season.

Sounds a little odd right? I mean, I’m pretty sure the message hitting you from all corners on social media is that you need to start looking into 2018 and begin putting things in place in order to make it better than this year. Now, inasmuch as I agree with all these, they do not form the focus of this post today. If you’d like to get information about how to envision, plan for, work and have the life of your dreams next year, check out my posts from November. I wrote a whole series on that.

Success comes at a price; living the life of your dreams will cost you money, energy, relationships, etc. To have the life you desire, sacrifices have to be made and sometimes these can be costly. For example, building a world-class business will require that you quit doing things at your convenience and giving one hundred percent every time. This does not mean that you cannot have fun or enjoy yourself as you journey towards success

The year is fast coming to an end and it is a great time to begin to envision what 2018 will be for us. I have been thinking about this journey and how clear we need to see before we set out, only to realise that for me, clarity has come in seasons and in phases. What this means is that I have needed conviction more than my second and third step in the journey. I now know that as long as I can understand the framework for my first step, and I am convinced it is for me then taking that first step is expedient to seeing the next one.
To begin envisioning, ask yourself the following questions:

Welcome to another week. My prayer and decree for you is that the lines fall in pleasant places for you in all you do this week.
As last week rolled by, I started to think on how this journey all started and how far I have come in that time. It felt like someone played for me a clip of my life on this journey and there was a lot to be grateful for. But then there was this one clip I couldn’t shake off, it was of me announcing how sure I was that in all I do and will do, there was something I would never do.

This is the palm of my hand, no, I am not looking for palm readers. You see that black mark? I didn’t artificially put it there to ask for help I was born with it. It is something that is unique to me and since I was young I have always loved the fact that of the many children my father had, no one else has this mark in their palm.
Recently, I took a look at this mark again, and I realised that for me it has become a reminder that I am different, unique and well… Me. Nobody else is me, it doesn’t necessarily mean that I am better than anyone, but it does say to me that I am special. This is why I can’t be in competition with anyone, I can only do what I can do and be who I am.
This mark also reminds me I have a responsibility to myself first to deliver on all that I have been endowed with. This mark confirms to me that my super power is real and it is mine therefore no ‘faffing” around.
Above all, this mark confirms to me that I am inscribed in the palm of His hand and if this tiny mark can hold so much for me, my name in the palm of His hand should do much more…I am therefore convinced that I am not forgotten. No, I am not.
You may not have a mark in your palm, but you definitely have something that is exclusively yours. Own it, enjoy it and be responsible to and for it.
As you begin your day and week, be reminded that you, yes you are inscribed in the palm in the palm of His hand and He knows your name and can never forget you!
Welcome to a brand new week. You matter, yes, you do.
Embrace your Super Power
