Having shared my 2018 story, I made a request for better 2018 experiences with the aim of posting the best. Well, I read so many comforting stories and trust me, that which you are about to read is highly inspirational. I hope you get motivated by Folake’s story.
2018 started with instructions from God and trust me, I could not have started it any better. A significant thing I held unto even as the year began was to put God first in everything I wanted to do for a guaranteed success. I may not have recorded 100% success or achieved all but I can boldly say I am a lot better and stronger.
My 2018 began with so much vigour and life which took me through the year. A lot of things contributed to a successful 2018 which of course motivates me to take up more in 2019. I discovered that the greatest and truest fulfillment one can ever get is discovering purpose. Someone walked up to me sometime in the year and said “thank you so much, you blessed me” and unconsciously I responded “I am fulfilling my purpose, so you have to be blessed”. When you know purpose, you have a direction, you have a blueprint of what or who the real you should be.
I cultivated the habit of seeing possibilities in impossibilities and this in itself contributed to my successful 2018. I did not chant the regular “it is not possible“. I believed that at the end of the tunnel was a shinning light, it did not just stop at believing, actions were taken to see that it became a reality. A mere vision without actions is just a mirage. Discipline, dedication and determination made the impossibilities possible for me. Adding to my knowledge and adding values made me better than who I was in the previous year. Paying attention to details is very important.
I am not at my best, but I know I can and would be better through the help of God.
It is evident that the God-factor is important to achieve success. As you prepare for another journey, strive to put God first in everything you do.
