Hello Merkuriusblog family and friends, I’m so glad to have such an amazing online family. I feel so blessed for you guys supportand love all through this journey, from day one till date. I’m so grateful and I appreciate and love each and everyone of you.
The essence of a family like this is GROWTH!. For everyone to experience growth in various aspect of their lives; personally, careers, businesses, relationships, psychologically, mentally, socially and lifestyle in general. This is why I continue to share innovative strategies, insights and wisdom to help us achieve that.
After some research, I took my time to prepare and create this invaluable online course that will help us end this year in a very high note and kick start the new year with so much confidence, enthusiasm, positive energy and practical skillset to crush our goals and enjoy meaningful success in life.
The first time i was invited for keynote speaking, I was nervous but still had the courage to speak, it wasn’t my best performance but I was proud of myself.
I was in a very good place in life then, sound and happy. I was taking care of myself spiritually, physically, mentally, emotionally and every other way.
I discovered that courage is not the absence of nervousness. But few years later, life hit me and my family so hard that I lost the sense of how important it is to prioritize self care and that made me lack the ability to take care of myself as I should.
All I focused on was the health challenge, financial difficulties and the sadness of each day. I was consumed by this ugly life experience. But one thing I did was, I never stopped learning and studying, I was still taking courses, reading books, going to seminars and gaining more knowledge and wisdom and yet I feel less confident day after day.
Until I realized what was missing, I was still struggling with confidence and productivity with all my knowledge.
If you have ever been in such situation, or you are in such situation right now, worry no more the solution is here. In this course are simple and yet very powerful practices and ways of boosting your confidence and becoming more productive and very effective both in your personal and professional life.
All you need is just to click the link below and sign up for this course. There are other bonuses that you will enjoy as well. Remember your commitment can take you to levels you never imagined, you can show your commitment by signing up and also by signing up, you are supporting and helping us to spread positivity and make a difference in our world.
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. If you want to learn more on this particular subject just send us an email at email@example.com and we will be more than happy to connect with you. I hope this blog added more value to your life, and I also hope the goal of this blog was achieved.

Thinking, Feeling and Choosing is the three things that happen in our minds. Thinking and feeling are the two important areas we need to focus on in our everyday lives. Because those two affects the choosing part (decision part). Sometimes we think according to how we feel at the moment, other times our feelings are a product of what we are thinking. You think about a bad incident, you begin to feel bad, you feel good about a new dress, you begin to think good thoughts. It all depends on what you are facing at aparticular moment and your ability to control it.
Majority of the time, what we think determines how we feel, how we make decisions and how we act. Many times you might have heard people make statements like; “I acted without thinking, or I acted out of impulse or I didn’t even know what I was thinking”. All these statements indicates that there can actually be an action without forethought.
The question is; How can we discipline ourselves to think empowering thoughts, so we can actually feel good and possibly act good? If you consider this question and give it a thought, there’s a double reward that comes from it. When you think empowering thoughts, it sprouts up some positive emotional energy and you feel good. Now when you eventually make decisions and acts on them, you feel even better. So you feel good when you think the thoughts and feel much better when you act on the thoughts (Double Reward).
When we understand that these three things is what goes on in our minds (Thinking, Feeling and Choosing) it will help us to better observe them and to become better in different facets of our lives; In leadership, relationship, career, business and social life. When you understand that your action is richly based on how you feel, so if you are not feeling good at any moment, it will help you to pause, retract your movement and re-evaluate yourself before you act. Understanding this will help you make better decisions and fewer errors.
Whatever we focus on, we feel. And focus doesn’t happen without deep thoughts, so when we are mindful of what we think, it will help to filter what we focus on, which will regulate how we feel and then govern how we act. This is something that from the moment Iunderstood it, I gained control. It doesn’t mean am perfect, but I improved.
A young man or woman that acted nice towards you today, can act like a beast towards you tomorrow, and it will seem like they have split personality. This is as a result of lack of understanding of these three things that happen in our minds. Our brains has more than 90 billion neurons that make 100 trillion connections or synapses, and this great number of neurons is responsible for the traits that make us uniquely humans; our thoughts, memories and emotions. So it’s not going to be easy to navigate all the activities that happen in our brains in order to gain control of these three things (Thinking,Feeling,Choosing) but it’s worth it when we try.
As I conclude this week’s blog, I just need you to understand that there’s always room for growth and improvement in life. There’s always a better side to move on to, you don’t have to normalize emotional torture and suffering because you think or believe there’s no other way. If you need help, seek it. Do not spend the later days of your life wallowing in pains of regret, the time to act is now, and this is what me and my team are here for, to help you, it’s what we live for.
And in case you are wondering what are the things that you can think on to make you feel good, make good decisions and act on them, for a start I will suggest you read a verse of scripture, Philippians 4:8; even if you are not a person of faith, I understand, am not here to judge anyone or preach religion. I love you just like I love everyone else and I want the best for you.That scripture will be a great way to start, I promise you.
Thank you for taking out your time to read this blog, we hope it added value to your life. STAY TUNED, we have amazing thing for you next week.
WONDERS ARE BORN WHEN YOU GET YOUR CONSCIOUS MIND AND YOUR SUBCONSCIOUS MIND TO AGREE ON A THING, BELIEVE IN IT, AND ACT ON IT .
It’s Almost impossible to have in life what you don’t believe you can, although life might throw you some unexpected goodies sometimes, but no meaningful success happens without intentionality, you can’t stumble on lasting success, it’s consciously built. Growing up, we weren’t taught much about subconscious mind, only a few of us had that privilege, and am sure not one of them. We weren’t exposed to the measure of unlimited power we possess as humans. “All things are possible to them that believe” That’s what God told us, this means He already gave us unlimited power to create. And that power is embedded in our subconscious mind. But it’s unfortunate that when we don’t know the value of a thing, we won’t know how to use it effectively. Our subconscious mind has the unlimited capacity to bring into existence whatever we strongly believe. It works on auto-pilot, all it needs is what to work with, give it what to work on or with, and you will be surprised. People that lack this understanding suffer from it, they allow themselves to absorb and entertain negativity and ignorantly feeding their subconscious mind with it and in return the subconscious mind will work with it and create it for them, bringing it into reality. Many times you meet people complaining, I don’t know why nothing is working in my life, it seems like the whole world is against me, and that’s all they think and believe. Now this becomes the raw material they hand over to their subconscious mind for production.
OUR SUBCONSCIOUS MIND HAS THE UNLIMITED CAPACITY TO PRODUCE OR CREATE WHAT EVER IT’S GIVEN. If this is the only thing you picked from today’s blog, it will transform your life in a great way. I want you to understand this; It’s not our subconscious mind that is the problem, it’s what we feed it to work with or work on. And the issue of what we feed it is where the conscious mind comes in play. Our conscious mind is the part that observes and interacts with our physical environment. It is influenced by our surroundings and that in turn influence what we think on the most, and remember what we think on the most tend to become a belief over time. Being cautious about what you allow and absorb in your conscious mind is the key to letting your subconscious mind create the life you truly desire. Every human desires a great life, but the question is; Do you think on those desires or is it just a passive thought? I call it a “decorative thought” those thought you think about only when you feel good. Do you think on your desires only when you feel good? and when you feel a little bit stress, you fill yourself with demeaning thoughts and negativity. You can’t enjoy the creative power of your subconscious mind that way.
When I began this journey to study and understand how powerful the subconscious mind is and how I can use it to create the life that I want, it wasn’t an easy journey. The fact that the environment I grew up in, was filled with men and women of fixed mindset made it more difficult for me. I had so many limiting beliefs, my definition of what a great life looks like for people like me was pathetic. The ideologies and belief system I was brought up in, made it seem like life has already chosen who will be great and who will not. As far as am concern, there’s already a clear distinction between us and them (by them, I mean the privileged) at least that’s what we called them. I believed that it was destined to be that way, I believed that no matter how hard I worked there are certain level I can’t reach in life. That kind of level has already been selected or predestined for the privileged whether they work hard for it or not. WHAT A STUPID MENTALITY. But I thank God, I broke those mental shackles, those mental paralysis. But it’s unfortunate that many people today still suffer those paralysis and are still in shackles.And For those people I write this blog today, listen friend, you don’t have to stay there anymore. I have tested life on that side, and now I am on the other side, and still going, but the truth I can tell you is, that life is way more better, sweeter, meaningful and fulfilling over on this side. You may not know it, you may not believe it, I didn’t many years ago, but don’t beat yourself up for it. Just know that you still will not know or believe it unless you make a decision today to leave there and step over here, and start experiencing this tremendous life. Is it going to be easy? NO, Is it going to worth it? ABSOLUTELY YES!. Listen, your conscious mind may not let you, it will battle with you. It already has too many limitations and excuses why it won’t be possible for someone like you, it might even be telling you right now that you are not good enough for this, that this is not for someone like you, you are too old or too young, you are not educated, you don’t have what it takes, your past is horrible and so on. I want YOU to scream at it right now, SHUT UP! whatever it told you was the reason you can’t do it, I want you to rephrase that statement positively and say it aloud to yourself. If I can, you can period.
The creative power of your subconscious mind cannot be positively utilized when you feed it negativity and limitations. Wonders are born when your conscious mind and subconscious mind agree on a thing. “Can two walk together unless they agreed?” “If two agree on anything and believe, it will be done for them.” Now is not too late, it’s just the beginning of a greater life and future. Now you know the part to play, and your subconscious mind will take care of the rest. Start changing your beliefs, start being intentional about what you think and focus on. Start a 30 days challenge, where you will be more intentional and observe your thoughts, and keep at it, and watch how your life will change for better. If you need help with any of this, on how to get rid of those limiting beliefs and employ empowering ones, or need to know more about the function of the mind (subconscious and conscious) so you can make great use of it, You can always reach out to us @ www.merkuriusmind.comand we will be more thanhappy to help you. We are here to serve you, to be a shoulder you can lean on, to help you discover your path to greatness, so you can pursue it.
Thank you for reading this blog, we hope this helps you realize the unlimited creative power you carry inside you. We hope this will challenge you to take actions. Remember, at the end; It is action and not just decisions that moves us closer to our dreams. STAY TUNED, AND I WILL SEE YOU AGAIN NEXT WEEK.
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;
The practice of self care begins with your mind, this means you must learn to observe and control your thoughts.
To practice holistic self care effectively, you must connect to your source or to the power that created you.
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.
You can’t practice self care without self love.
Self care is not an activity, there are values and high energy emotions that help in practicing it effectively.
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 remembertowards the end of 2020, Iencountered a devastating situation that badly affected me, spiritually, Emotionally, psychologically, and physically. Istruggled 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 livesbegan 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.
