Will Power is needed for us to make the most of our journey in life. Most people are willing to do what it takes to be successful or to lead a meaningful life, but few out of the willing ones do actually possess the WILL POWER to do so.

You might be wondering why, I’ll tell you why; willingness is a state, and to get into any state you require ENERGY — Will Power is that ENERGY you need to get into the state of willingness. So it’s impossible for you get into that state or rather be willing to do something greater without you immersing yourself into the energy called “will power”. As cool as this may sound, let’s not forget that energy are in levels and it’s wisdom to allow yourself to grow into different levels rather than trying to forcefully jump into it. This is where acceptance comes into play.

Hang in there with me buddy, we are getting some where. The positive energy called will power is seen as the gateway to higher levels in life. NOTE: The goal of this blog is to get you to understand how you can make this energy (will power) automatic so you can tap into it at will.

Mind you, some people already operate in the neutral level and higher level of this energy without knowing it. They don’t necessarily see it as will power as in the sense of the word, they call it differently, some call it commitment, some call it determination and so on. But every great decision and action are born out of the energy called will power.

So when we talk about willingness, it’s about transporting yourself into a state that implies that you have overcome inner resistance to life and you are committed to participation or action. But transporting yourself into this state and following through demands and requires substantial amount of energy, without this energy people don’t always pull through to the very end. Just imagine for a second making such energy automatic, making it a part of you, you will be amazed how much great things you could accomplish. No kidding, imagine it and hold it in your head for at least 30seconds if you can please.

Now let’s talk ACCEPTANCE and how it’s connected to Willingness. You will agree with me that the best way to make something automatic is to build a habit around it or turn it into a habit. Habits are consciously built, and to build anything awareness is required. Acceptance is a level of awareness. Because of the subject of discussion, we are not going to talk about accepting your weaknesses and things like that. We want to shift it a little bit, here we will be talking about acceptance of truth and understanding. (Understanding the fact that you are the source and the creator of the experiences of your life.) Is this something you think you can accept? Let me know on the comment section below. This might sound so easy, but in reality it’s a difficult thing to accept.

Come to think of it, there are certain things you have experienced in life that are not your making or that you have no power over, so why then will you accept that you are the source and the creator of your experiences in life. But please listen, here lies the secret; Accepting that your are the source and creator of your experiences simply hands you the power to transform whatever you don’t like. It hands you the power to evolve, re-evolutionize, and harmoniously use the forces of life to your advantage.

When you accept this truth, you become a creator. Acceptance of such truth will boost your will power, which in turn puts you in the state (willingness) to always act or perform. Keeping this level of awareness all the time makes it become a habit. The energy to act is what separates the great from the small.

I hope this blog added more value to your life, and I also hope the goal of this blog was achieved.



Truthfully speaking most of us shy away from complex situations because we’re disturbed and unsettled with the intricate environment and mental demoralization that it creates. Complexity has its pros and cons, but understanding the difference between positive complexity and negative complexity is the key to outstanding growth and organizational and social development.

Positive complexity comes with positive stress and ample curiosity. Negative complexity comes with negative stress and unsupported compromise of personal values and organizational cultures. Understanding the difference between this two will save you mental drainage and demoralization.

Shying away from complexity doesn’t make you smart, rather understanding the thin line between the two types of complexity will set you apart. I would also love to mention that through positive complexity is absolute clarity gained. Clarity is power they say, but not an excuse to only attempt the familiar and live a mundane life.

It’s complex for babies to learn how to walk and talk, because both tasks requires the activities of the brain, muscles, environmental factors and external restraint or moderation. But am guessing with all these complexities, no one will wish for their baby not to walk or talk, because we consider it as part of their development and growth. Why then do we limit our own growth and development as adults by disengaging in complex situations. It’s stressful for a baby to learn how to walk and talk, but those are positive stress, and positive stress leads to growth and development.

The question is; what has shying away from complexity cost us? How many doors have we unintentionally shut simply because we disengaged from a complex situation without proper evaluation and understanding. Well, I can tell you my friend, it has cost me a lot. Several years ago, before I started creating contents, and before I wrote my first book, I used to withdraw myself from situations that seemed complex. I used to overthink it, and then give myself a million and one reason why I can’t do it, why I’m not meant for this, but in reality, I was just escaping the complexity and the work that is required. Thank God that I had many mentors and friends who pushed and encouraged me. Even with all my personal growth journey, I still needed that change of mentality on how to perceive and approach complex situations. I’m not there yet, but proud of the man I’m becoming.

My goal today with this blog is to maybe give you a little push, and maybe a change in mentality on how you see and perceive complexity, and I hope I achieved that. I can confidently and courageously tell you today that there’s a good side of complexity, but you can never find it if you keep shying away from it. Challenge yourself today, bring your total intellectual substance and passion into complex situations and you will be amazed what you will discover about yourself and the power that you possess.

Thank you again friends for your time, I appreciate and love you guys. Keep living strong and with passion.

PERFECTION IS NEVER THE GOAL, PROGRESS IS. And progress has no finish line, but perfection does. Perfection is associated with a fixed mindset, while progress is associated with growth mindset. Knowing is the obsess language of those that seek perfection, learning is the obsess language of those that seek progress.


The biological nature of man makes him inquisitive, but not so very receptive to new information, findings and atmosphere. Increasingly daily, man search for meaning, but because man is unlimited, the search for meaning opens new dimensions of self that has never been experienced or witnessed before and sometimes could be scary. But am here to let you know that it’s actually okay to feel like you don’t recognize yourself sometimes in certain stages of your life. it’s okay to feel unfamiliar in the familiar. You are unlimited, and the quest to discover your unlimited potentials is a journey that never ends.


The texture and the fabric of your identity is designed specially for you, so don’t expect everyone else to applause your texture, they won’t, because they may not understand it. When you give up on your journey simply because you feel you are not been understood, you didn’t only disappoint God, but your identity and nature.

I once heard someone define potential as our unique path to growth, and that got me thinking real hard. Growth is an acceptable and familiar word for everyone, but the journey to growth differs for each individual. Although growth as a word is familiar, your path to it can be unfamiliar. This is why I said earlier it’s okay to feel unfamiliar in the familiar. Just remember these words —-> YOUR JOURNEY, YOUR PATH, YOUR CRAFTSMANSHIP. Personalize it and say it till it sinks in.

You might be troubled by the pace at which you are moving, but ask yourself who judges your pace, what factors influences your judgement. Putting all these into consideration is very important before you get troubled by it. Here’s one advice I always give people; ” You may not be able to do all you find out, but find out all you can do and start doing it” The pace may not be as you want, but as long as you reach deep down in yourself and draw out your energy and passion and attach it to all you do, you will be fulfilled.


As I end this week’s blog, I want you to always remember this; the reason it’s called a journey is because you can’t predict all that will happen along the way, you can prepare for it, but certainly can’t predict it. And it’s part of that preparation that I offer this little piece to you and I hope it helps you in any petite way. Growth in every dimensions of life is a journey that never ends. So stop aiming for a destination, aim for progress, but remember; It’s your journey, your path, your craftsmanship. YOU GOT TO OWN IT!

Thank you again for your time, and I hope this blog serves you in any way, please leave us a comment. Let us know your thoughts and what interests you. Have a wonderful Labor Day Holiday…


Few weeks ago, I got an invitation from the Maryland Workforce Association to submit a proposal to speak in an event called (Raising The Bar) concerning some top issues affecting the productivity and wellness of the workforce professionals. And Holistic Self-Care was one of the topics on the top list. The Issue of Holistic self care is often neglected because most people think is unattainable. We know that self care is important for our overall well being, yet we pay little or no attention to it. And the reason is not because we don’t want it, but because we haven’t found an effective way to practice Holistic self care. In this blog, I just want to share some simple secrets that can help us practice Holistic self care effectively, so we can reap the benefits of it.

We have to understand that lack of self care can cause a lot of damages both in our personal and professional lives. Problems like; Psychological insecurity, lack of trust, low self esteem, anxiety, poor communications, toxic relationships, poor leadership and management and so on.. Can increase where proper self care is lacking.

The first thing in practicing effective Holistic self care is to believe that it is possible, practicable and you can master it. But then you need to understand that Holistic self care is not just about the physical aspect of you. Visiting the spa, eating healthy, exercising, taking a warm bath with salt water, going outside to receive sunlight and so on.. are great practice, but Holistic self care goes way beyond that. Self care is not scientific, it is a natural practice that enhances the significance of human nature. This means that self care starts from within before it could be manifested without. And to take care of yourself within, you have to know yourself — Spirit, Soul, Mind and Body.


Holistic Self-care starts with self realization, because you can’t truly care for what you don’t know yet. And in your journey of self realization, these four things will help you achieve it; AWARENESS (inner Awakening), INTENTIONALITY, EMPATHY, and GRATITUDE. You can’t discover certain version of yourself without these four things. These four words are broader than you think, am not going to dive deeper into them now, but I might do that on my next blog so watch out for it. I just need you to take note of the four things, because without these four things your journey into self realization and discovery will be futile. The next stage after self realization is; you have to know your spirit, and you have to know how to take care of your spirit. It is important to note that we are spirits, that have a soul and lives in a body. So if you develop a self care plan that targets only your soul and body without your spirit, you still wouldn’t find true peace. Because holistic self care consists of the Spiritual, Mental, Emotional, Physical, Social, and Lifestyle in general. I believe this is a very important point to note, you can’t be able to know and care for your spirit, without connecting to your source or to the power that created you. And by that I mean GOD. I am a Christian, although am not here to preach religion, but I believe in God and in the Lordship of Jesus Christ.

Before I go further, I want to register this six points in our hearts;

  1. The practice of self care begins with your mind, this means you must learn to observe and control your thoughts.
  2. To practice holistic self care effectively, you must connect to your source or to the power that created you.
  3. You must understand the truth that you are a spirit, you have a soul and you live in a body, so you have to know your spirit.
  4. You can’t practice self care without self love.
  5. Self care is not an activity, there are values and high energy emotions that help in practicing it effectively.
  6. You can not enjoy the full benefit of self care when it’s not extended to others, because you are one with all humanity.

I remember towards the end of 2020, I encountered a devastating situation that badly affected me, spiritually, Emotionally, psychologically, and physically. I struggled for months, Until God’s grace introduced me deeper into these three things; FORGIVENESS, EMPATHY and GRATITUDE , I call it “FEG”. As I began to focus intentionally on these three things, I began to heal, the farther I go, the more I gain wholeness. I decided to not just focus on them, but live them and become them. And everything changed, not just healing and wholeness, but more doors of opportunities to serve and impact lives began to open.

The issue of self care is very important, you wouldn’t know what you are missing in your life, until you begin practicing it effectively and make it a lifestyle. I just shared two major things today; self realization and knowing your spirit. Find the best way to get to know your spirit, it can be through meditation, worship, quiet time, reflection etc.. just find the way that works best for you. Next week I will share more on the Emotional, Psychological and Social aspect of self care, so you need to subscribe now so you get notifications once we publish. You can also share this blog to help and encourage someone out there. Thank You.

I will close on this note; during the ordeal I experienced towards the end of last year, One of the three things that I focused on which I mentioned before on this blog was “forgiveness” and it helped me greatly. But I came across a passage from “A Course In Miracles” by Helen Schucman on forgiveness that changed my life, and I thought I should share it here with you.

“Do you want peace? forgiveness offers it. Do you want happiness, a quiet mind, a certainty of purpose and a sense of worth and beauty that transcends the world”?

Do you want a quietness that cannot be disturbed, a gentleness that can never be hurt, a deep abiding comfort and a rest so perfect it can never be upset? All this forgiveness offers you”.

Please just read those passage again and again till it sink, that is the definition of Holistic Self Care. STAY TUNED, I WILL SEE YOU NEXT WEEK. THANK YOU.
