Whats Messing With Your TEMPO?

I have a dream

I was recently listening to a four-minute clip by a motivational speaker who was speaking about the reason why people who have dreams and ambitions don’t always achieve them and it struck a chord with me mainly because for the longest time there are things I want to do and achieve but found myself delaying on as well as procrastinating until my urge to do them was desperate. To be honest, in my desperation I can sometimes make hasty decisions… anyway in his teaching I picked up on something I hadn’t seen before. I hadn’t seen this key connection or perhaps hadn’t acknowledged the particular effects this had on my growth pattern. The speaker made a comparison between the belief that I should get things done and the weight of value that I myself put on those things which I need to be doing. I have always known that prioritising is effective in eliminating the not so important things and people that can get you walking in circles about your goals where you should be walking a straight but purposeful line.

He said that people often found themselves believing in the goal that they had set and the plans that they had made and that they had even valued what they set in their hearts to do but the reason it wasn’t happening was because in one of the two areas of either “Belief or Value” they didn’t have the conviction required to remain committed to the value they placed on the goal or that perhaps they valued it but did not believe in it as much.

Beliefs are the convictions that we generally hold to be true, usually without actual proof or evidence. They are often, but not always connected to religion. …Beliefs are basically assumptions that we make about the world and our values stem from those beliefs. –  Difference Between 

Friends, it’s safe to say if you don’t believe in it you won’t do it and certainly, if you don’t value it then you are likely not to continue even though you would have started so well. Is there just one key to staying consistent until we achieve our goal? Or rather is it diligently finding, through the suggested principles the unique combinations of your Motivation. Seeing as we may not all be mobilised by the same thing we need to be interested in our own unique self-motivation code in order to open the door of our potential and walk straight into manifestation. None of it is easy.

So remember…

1) Prioritise and ask yourself on a scale of 1-10, 1 being Hopeless and 10 being I’m manifesting and acting on my imagination, insight, dream, vision… Just how important is what I’m doing? Is it worth going around in Circles with the Masses or should I be looking for a straight line, a narrow road that does not have too many people and distractions.. It’s not popular but I will walk the road less traveled to get there.

2) Do I believe in this every day or on a part-time basis? You see because if you don’t believe in it on some days you will do it in half measures or do nothing at all. Every time your motivation is low your action is often slow or nonexistent. So this means you have got to fuel your motivations and environments should be charged with reminders of your Core Beliefs. You literally need to take over your atmosphere and saturate it with reasons to keep going. This will keep your belief game strong. Vision Board (Pictures with Annotations stuck on a board, motivational messages about your actual goals ready to play, accountability partner on your phone instead of watching and listening to entertainment.

3) Value it store it deep within like water in a mountain but letting it flow out through specific, and intentional activities and also have accountability and counsel where possible to alert you when you are on the verge of violating your principle in the name of profit and your integrity in the name of compromise. Your values either make you distinct or extinct.

Never expect others to care more about your dreams or success more than you do. 

All said with your future in mind, don’t stop keep it moving.

Kingly regards

Man Thoughts: The Integrity of My People

“My integrity will take me a long way.
But our integrity will lift us out of the Miry Clay of Corruption.”- Martin Vito

If you are someone who walks in integrity, I urge you persist on that path. There is plenty of light in that kind of tunnel. The first light is you and the second is the people that you choose to walk, talk and do business with. Diaspora Africans have a challenge on their hands when it comes to believing in and supporting one another. Due to reasons owing to the economic climate we are forced to constantly surf over the depth of our personal and collective insecurities when it comes to matters of trust. We fear back stabbers, gold diggers, oppportunists, frienemies and adulterers in various forms. Sometimes it seems we would rather fear them or become them. In reality we have to confront them.

We cannot even speak long enough about our social ills before someone starts showing off about their personal achievements and attainments that only conclude on the note of personal glory. In that personal story no one else is included, no flag can be raised and no true honour can be awarded because our efforts are for selfish gain and not collective establishment of a decent vantage point. Our brand of teamwork is constantly laced with selfish ambition. The corruptions of the few become the corruptions of the many when we say nothing.

Our Family structures are riddled with secrets of things no one ever talks about. When will we ask ourselves the deeper questions about where we came from and whats resident in our DNA? Is my selfish ambition, emotional dysfunction, sexual addiction, impenetrable pride, pornographic desire a condition imposed on me by the nation I am in or a descendant of my “unknown” ancestors? If it is a combination of the two then I must weed out what is in me and spread the message of that clearance.

At some stage someone will have to ask the pertinent question about personal Family History before they ask us about National History. Secondary to that question should be where does my Family sit in connection to the history of my nation of origin.

The answers to these very two questions will start an avalanche of drive and courage to correct the wrongs passed on through ignorance and write the story that best reflects a heart sobered by deep discovery.
