Guard Your Heart..Courage Resides



This is for every career woman who is just starting out in the pursuit of a great career; for every woman entrepreneur in the mix, trying to figure out where you belong. If you’ve been burning the midnight candle learning all you can just to get your brand right, this is for you.

You may not have been born into a wealthy family. Maybe, growing up, you didn’t even have a family. Your profile may not fit with that of a perfect CEO, or even the perfect wife or mum. Maybe, like me,  your small physique sometimes makes people doubt your competence. Yes, I’ve been there.

If you have that constant feeling that you have a purpose inside of you that is screaming “Let me out!”, this is for you.

As we move into February, it’s time to discover your smile and recover your shine.

There’s a deposit God placed inside of you from the very day you were born. That deposit is a launch pad to every thing great and exceptional, you could and would ever be to be successful

The question is : Do you believe in yourself and what you’ve got inside as much as the One who put it there?

In a world where women are forced to behave in a certain way, dress like a certain person, and live a particular lifestyle, it is very easy to ignore what’s inside and keep chasing after the external factors. The only problem is that the bar gets raised year on year and the goalpost shifts depending on what’s in vogue. So, for anyone who is looking for any form of identity, it’s a never ending chase.

It’s the second month in 2016. You know you’ve got this! Most importantly, God’s got you! Guard your heart from every form of distraction and self limiting beliefs. Why?

Courage resides there. 

 We find our way when we find the courage to light a candle in the dark and keep moving. We become exceptional when we find the courage to take ordinary things and do them well. We stay true to our  calling when we find the courage to be who we really are and to stay true to our values no matter what.

So, as February rolls in:

  • Is there an idea you’ve always meant to implement? It’s time for you to take the first step.
  • Is there something new you’ve always wanted to try out? It’s time to do it.
  • Are you stuck in that comfort zone not knowing which way to go? It’s time to give yourself space to grow. Get help if you have to. Talk to a coach, a mentor, a partner, a friend.

Many doors of opportunities are opening every day. Will you find the courage to knock, turn the knob, and walk in with confidence?

Dream Big. Thing bigger. Walk Tall. Stand bold. That’s what you were born to do.

To your growth and life success,

    True. Despise not little beginnings. We also have values, knowledge and skills in us that the world is waiting to tap from.

    Success definitely comes from within, if you must become anything, you must believe you are first. It definitely resides insides us. Thanks Fofo.
