So, the other day, I was amazed. I suddenly woke up in the middle of the night to conclude some unfinished tasks. I eagerly checked the time and behold it was a few minutes past two o’clock. My eyes unexpectedly gazed at the date and guess what, it was a new month. How come I wondered. Anyway, time doesn’t wait for any man as it is said most times. Having saw that I had been ushered into a new month, my joy knew no bounds, like everyone. No specific reason for this though.
Throughout that day, I was extremely excited and did all my scheduled tasks eagerly. Suddenly, my happiness just like a bird who wouldn’t want to be caught vanished into thin air. What could be the reason for this? What supernatural force would want to steal my joy? Who was jealous of me and would want to ruin my day with sadness? These and other thoughts preoccupied my mind.
I thought of the classical title I had always dreamed of writing, I thought of the various professional courses I wanted to write, the thought of the business plan I wanted to put into writing rent my thought like a high magnitude earthquake. All these like a frightening storm ripped my heart apart. Like a flash of light in a tunnel, a voice spoke clearly to my hearing: “Its Time To Rise“.
Its Time To Rise? What could be the meaning of all these, I pondered. Does it mean I was operating beneath altitude? Rise from what? Rise into what? After sitting down ruminating, I finally conceded defeat and accepted the verdict of the still tender voice that spoke to my hearing.
Dear friend, perhaps your case wasn’t like mine or on the contrary, we are operating along the same lines. There is no need panic or entertain fears. The glad tidings is this: ” Its Time To Rise”. You might raise the same question like I did: Rise from what? Yes. Rise and shine, rise from obscurity to light. Rise into glory, rise into success.
I suppose you had several plans at the beginning of the year. Yours might be different from mine. Probably you wanted to acquire some properties, you want to change your job or career and the likes. January came and went, February disappeared into thin air. You thought of conquering March with confidence and up till now, there is as it were “no show“. Don’t despair.
This is the second quarter. Rise from mediocrity, step into the light, step into victory, step into success. Take that step. Do not be intimidated! Just a quarter is gone, we still have three quarters comprising of nine months and over two hundred and fifty days intact and untouched. You want to waste time? Certainly not.
Remember, to live in obscurity is to live in shame, fear, insufficiency, low self-esteem, stagnation and defeat. Sharpen your focus and know that this is the time to evolve.
It’s Time To Rise! Do have a successful April ahead.
