I woke up this morning telling myself that it’s going to be a good day and a great week. That is my declaration and I believe it, it was also a prayer point for me yesterday in church (*SmileS*) and this morning too. There is a saying that “whatever you believe, you become”… the meaning of this can be well stretched, as you could relate it to any aspect of life, but what is most imminent at this point is now and today. What is your believe for today, yes now, at this moment as you read this? As for me, it will be a good day.Most of the blows that come to us in life are born by our approach to situations. When situations arise, the first action we take is usually intuitive; as a result of our perception on that situation and other things surrounding it, then our believe system takes a position. This position is usually what guides and determines the eventual outcome, it gives our senses, our environment and other factors the drive it needs to achieve. The whole process could be complex when thought about, lets not disturb ourselves with that, instead let’s interest ourselves in having the right mentality and attitude to begin today.
How you begin today will determine how it will end. How you begin today will play a lot of role in determining how your week will go. As for me, I have began with a positive believe that everything that happens today will work for my good. Now I ask myself, what roles am I supposed to play to make today's outcome what I expect of it or even better:
· I start my day with a prayer: the prayer gives me the necessary energy I need on the other realm to face the day.
· I will eat well today (no junks).
· I will keep up the smile on my face.
· I will work smart and as diligently as is expected of me.
· I will avoid crossing people’s path to avoid their wahala.
· I will talk less and listen more.
· I will trek of at least 15 mins today as my planned exercise for the day.
· I will blog for at least an hour before bed time
· I will sleep early and sound, so help me God.
I have more things on my mind, but will share just these ones. What’s you approach to this day going to be like? Would like you to share, your comments are very much welcomed.
Today will only come by once in your life time, make it memorable and worthwhile. Drop all the odds of yesterday... thinking about how bad yesterday was will ruin your today. Let it go, let's live today.
Do have a good day (you can make it wonderful or even great) and a great week ahead.
You know, the devil is a lier. I did this post early this morning (Monday, 3rd Aug) only to discover in the evening that it disappeared somehow. My apologies to all especially those who saw the post's image but not the post. I will do my best to ensure that this doesn't happen again in future *SmileS*ReplyDelete
Thanks for your understanding.
Lol! Got the notification on google plus this morning, opened it on my phone and read it, was going to comment later but when I came back it had disappeared.ReplyDelete
You'll update your blog daily? YES!!!
Daily kee! Is that vision 2020?Delete
I don't joke with my Mondays. I avoid unnecessary phone calls,gossips,hang out .What ever I do on Mondays do affect the rest of the week. So i make sure i start with a positive and optimistic attitude.ReplyDelete
You have a good plan for the day.
Now I am wondering how you identify what phone calls are unnecessary. But truly, a positive and optimistic start to ones day, not just Monday's is the right tonic for a great day.Delete
Ugo, LoL. your village people are at work.ReplyDelete
My village people? They wanted to read the post alone ni... they could be selfish at times. Don't mind them joor.Delete
I willl start my day with prayers and a postive attitude. Attitude is everything. Nice one Ugo..ReplyDelete
Thanks for coming around Sophie... Indeed, attitude is everything.Delete
To the littlest of things I am optimistic. I envision it and it comes to be. I remember when I saw the new Smile Mifi, I liked it. Compared to the older device model the new one seemed more compact and finer. I was going to swap for the new one only to learn I had to pay(big money at that). Anyways I didn't bother because since I desired it in my mind I told myself I was going to get it at no cost. Few weeks later my dear, my old Mifi device truly packed up and they had to change it for me at NO COST (think it and it will be). I strongly believe in the power of visualization :-)ReplyDelete
The power of visualization, another evidence of faith propelling miracles. Thanks for sharing.Delete
I hope you achieved all that on monday???15mins trek abi you no wan carry bike? LolzReplyDelete
Hmm... I did o. You make a 15 mins trek sound like an endurance trek, what you fail to realise is that most of us do more than that regularly without knowing it.Delete
Ugo, your plans for the day/week are great. Be slow to speak and be quick to listen, listening is the best form of communication and prayer is key for me as well.ReplyDelete
Sorry about the post disappearing. It happened to me too but mine didn't disappear, it just didn't send out as scheduled
Thanks Nkem. I appreciate your comments here.
I love your mantras for the day. However, as regards mantra 5, how do you avoid crossing people's paths when they keep crossing yours? *na innocent question ooo...lol*ReplyDelete
Lovely mantras, I'll try to create mine.
How to avoid people's path...hmm... this might just be topic of a blog post for another day and trust me, "na innocent anwer I go give ooo..." *winks*Delete
Thanks for stopping by.
This Ugo is funny o, #myconclusion. Well it's a good plan for the day even though it seems like a plan for a whole quarter...ReplyDelete
Glo, that's the whole point... the good plan for the day brings sanity to your life that day. If it becomes a datum plan for every other day, then it wont just be a quarter, but a year and even a long period. The main purpose for this is achieving a good living and being a better person... Hope I am making sense.Delete
Thanks for stopping by. *SmileS*
