It is vital for you to understand that nothing just happens; an object assumes a state of rest until a force is applied. To think that delay is normal is very abnormal. All you just need to come out of delay is the RIGHT UNDERSTANDING. Proverbs 13 vs. 15 says that good understanding gives favour. There are two things you need to understand to come out finally out of any form of delay, whether in marital fulfillment or expectations, financial upliftment or job security & promotion, spiritual growth or favour from GOD. The first thing you must understand is that God does not share His glory with any man. Isaiah 48 vs. 11 For mine own sake, even for mine own sake, will I do it: for how should my name be polluted? and I will not give my glory unto another. So if you feel you can do it, then you may not glorify God when it is done. Until you see yourself as helpless unless God helps you, delays may continue. If you have been experiencing delay for about three months it is wisdom to let God step in now before it becomes three years. This might shock you: until you are ready to give up on your strength and depend on God, He may just be watching you. But if you totally allow Him to do it so that everybody will know that HE is God then delay will come to an end. Proverbs 3 vs. 5 to 6 Trust in the LORD with all your heart; and lean not unto your own understanding. Trust in the LORD with all your heart; and lean not unto your own understanding. The second thing that causes delay is having the wrong motive. God does not want you to be puffed up by whatever He does for you. He wants you to possess the attitude of love. Be ready to give to others from the blessings God has given you. Matthew 10 vs. 8 says freely you have received so freely give. Maintain an attitude of love all the way. Don’t see yourself as more special, or more beautiful or endowed; don’t see yourself as more educated or more important than others. If you are more educated it is so that you will help educate others, if you are richer it is so that you will help enrich others. This is the right motive, possess this motive and delay will be a thing of the past.

I have been asked several times why I choose writing poetry and motivating people. Well, my answer is simple: If you find yourself in my side of life, you'll definitely be grateful about the simple things life offers. You'll come to understand that every single day is an opportunity, and a reason to be grateful. I love what I do not because I generate a flow of income from it, but because in what I do, I can define my life and at the same time give meaning to someone elses life. As a poet my perception to life and the things that happen around me is quite endearing. I see life from the angle of possibilities. "Having overtime understood that drooling over situations never change the results, I choose to be optimistic at all levels and sphere of life." Born into a humble background, where my Destiny helper took the pains of seeing me through school as his last born and integrate me into his blissful family. gave me quite the necessary lessons I needed to become the man I have grown to be. Life is simply amazing when you see situations as a class and a needed lesson. I am simply an observer, I try my best to sketch out my tomorrow from my today's views. As a motivator, I see every experiences as a needed tool to help my friends, acquaintance and the entire society towards making the right choices. When you appreciate the person you have become, you can easily define your life's journey from where you came from, having a clear vision and understanding of your desired destination. Self-discovery means many things. It means finding your purpose in life (we all have a purpose), it means digging deep into your childhood and revealing the experiences that shaped you... good and bad. It means realizing what your beliefs are and living by them. The effects of self-discovery include happiness, fulfillment, clarity and maybe even enlightenment! The journey however is not always an easy road. The journey includes fear, confusion, misunderstanding, doubt and literally re-visiting all your choices in life. I like to refer to it as reshuffling of the mind, your emotions and your surroundings (including the people in your life). It requires making some tough decisions and sticking to them. My journey so far has seen me cut people out of my life. I call them the “takers.” They were takers because I allowed them to be and it wasn’t until I realized that many of these relationships were one-sided — self- discovery — that I decided to cut them out. It has also seen me completely change the course of my life and start to follow my true passion and purpose (poetry and motivation). I have also started to set intentions and no longer have expectations from others — okay... this one is really hard for me and it’s a work in progress — but instead I have started to look within for answers. I’ve had several set backs along the way and I have no doubt I will have many more but, I’m not giving up. What I know for sure is that the journey is worth taking. I am slowly becoming my true self, more aware and more tolerant. I am learning how to pay attention to my feelings and understand myself better. What I know for sure is that I have had several unrealistic expectations, which have set up for disappointment. Apparently because I lie to myself. Why do we do this? Why do we lie to ourselves? And more importantly, why do we allow ourselves to get away with it? When someone else lies to me and I find out about it I freak out. “How dare he lie to me? Does she think I’m stupid?” but, we lie to ourselves profusely and even cover up our own lies by accepting them as truth in order to reassure ourselves that it’s okay!!! What I know for sure is that being true to my feelings and accepting the poet and motivator in me and also acknowledging him as well as validating him has released so much fear in me. It has released my fear of not being good enough as well as my fear of not living up to the expectations I set for myself. What I know for sure is that we are usually our own worst enemy. We hold ourselves back in so many ways and accepting who I am, helps me move away from that pattern. The freedom you will feel within yourself starts when you accept the person you are or have become without being bias. However, the universe will give you back in rewards when your passion and obsession for who you are and what you believe in supercedes the challenges and discouragement that comes from your distrators.
