Today, I reflect upon the day of my Birth and the Journey thus far in my earthly mission; the purpose of my birth and the essence of my existence in this beautiful World with its seeming hurdles and conquests. I come to realise that indeed, LIFE IS FULL OF BEGININIGS. They are presented every day and every hour to every person. Most beginnings are small and appear trivial and insignificant, but in reality they are the most important things in Life.
In the material Word, see how everything proceeds from small beginnings. The mightiest river is at first a rivulet over which the grasshoppers could leap; the great flood commences with a few drops of rain; the sturdy oak, that hat has endured the storms of a thousand winters, was once an acorn.
In the Spiritual World, consider how the greatest things proceed from smallest beginnings. A simple Word from God brought forth light to a dark and void world; He created heaven and earth; man and all creatures of the world; from one man, came generations born and yet to be born. Indeed, a word from God brought forth me, a being full of Life and inherent potentials. You are definitely not left out; you a product of a wonderful beginning, created in the Image and likeness of God.
A light fancy may be the inception of a wonderful invention or an immortal work of art; a spoken sentence may turn the tide of history; a pure though entertained may lead to the exercise of a world-wide regenerative power.
Have you yet discovered the vast importance of beginnings? Do you really know what is involved in a beginning? Do you know the number of beginnings you are continuously making and do you realise their full importance?
A beginning is a cause, and as such it must be followed by an effect or a train of effects and the effect will be of the same nature as the cause. A beginning also presupposes an ending, a consummation, achievement, or goal. A gate leads to a path, and a path to some destination; so a beginning leads to results, and results lead to completion. Indeed, there are right beginnings and wrong beginnings followed by effects of a like nature.
If your beginnings were right, pray for the Grace to keep it up and to persevere till the end. However, do not dwell upon the sins and mistakes of yesterday so exclusively as to have no energy and mind left for living rightly today, and do not think that the sins of yesterday can prevent you from living aright today. Begin today right with the world, and aided by the accumulated experiences of all your past days, live it better than your previous days; but you cannot possibly live it better unless you begin it better.
Seek the Grace of God in all that you do; be inspired by a word from God and let the beginning of all your endeavors for the rest of your life be a right beginning that leads to a fulfilling and happy end irrespective of the obstacles, challenges and hurdles that may present itself.
You are Blessed beyond your imaginations and expectations…
You are God’s Own!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, HAPPY BEGINNING.

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.
Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.
It is our Light not our darkness that most frighten us.
We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented and fabulous?
Actually, who are you not to be?
You are a Child of GOD.
Your playing small does not serve the World.
There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you.
We were born to manifest the Glory of God that is within us.
It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone.
And as we let our own Light Shine,
We unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.
As we are liberated from our own fear,
our presence automatically liberates others.
Remember, you are who you say you are!

As we journey through life, there are times when we feel empty; we seem not to fathom the purpose of our existence: why we are where we are.
We strive but don't seem to get to our designated mark or point. Worst still, we seem to be distracted and held down by the noises around us. It seems more like one step forward and two step backward.
At such point, we are tempted to give up on our dreams and aspiration; our quest for a successful future become obscured by the uncertainty of what tomorrow may bring.
How then do we navigate this path of obscurity to the destination of success?
Interestingly, there are fundamental questions we tend to overlook but they are a bearing to the path we decide to take. Such questions include: "What is your definition of Success?" and "Why do you want to succeed?".
Indeed, each person has his/her own definition of success but What is your own perspective of success? and what is your yardstick for measuring success?
Is success all about amassing wealth and fame? Is it all about garnering knowledge and academic qualifications? Is it about having a booming business/empire or getting married to the love of your life and raising a beautiful and wonderful family?.
Someone once said that people lose out in life because of these 4 reasons:
- Being myopic to opportunity
- Looking down on opportunities
- Lacking understanding
- Failing to act quickly enough
Below are some assertion; do they in anyway give an insight to what what success is and the reason to succeed?
"All men dream, but not equally. Those who dream in the dark recess of the night awake in the day to find all was vanity. But the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act their dreams with open eyes, and make it possible."
"Shouts and Joy comes after victory, but it takes FAITH to shout before victory ! "
"No matter what one does, regardless of failure or success, the experience is a form of success in itself.
"In this world, there are things that are deemed unfathomable, but there is nothing in this world that cannot be done. The depth of one's ambition is determined by the potential of one's future.
Each of us has a personal calling that's as unique as a fingerprint - and that the best way to succeed is to discover what you love and then find a way to offer it to others in the form of service, working hard, and also allowing the energy of the universe to lead you.
Remember, it's not by power or might, but the Grace of God in You.
