I just want to say a BIG thank you to all my readers AND followers. Without you, writing will be a lot more difficult, THANK YOU.
For the past 2 weeks I have meet a lot of cool, creative people and I am wondering how can this be? People like this in Nigeria....hmmmmm!!!!
In the past 2 weeks I have learnt a lot of things, in my writing, my business and my marriage that I haven't learnt in over a year.
In the past 2 weeks I have been criticized so much that I have made up my mind to be the best in everything I do.
In the past 2 weeks I have learnt that I need patience for everything.
I have learnt that it is not about how many books or articles or journals or how much you have or earn, or your family name, or the connections you have, but about how well you do whatever it is you are doing.
I have learnt that patience is the key to every creative mind.
How can I be patient especially when I am looking at the ceiling and begging God to please send money down from heaven like he sent manna for the children of Israel in the bible?
How can I be patient when I want to see my books in print and tell everybody who is anybody that I am a writer and I have published a book? How can I? but :
I have learnt that it takes a bamboo 6 years to shoot out of the soil and 6 months to reach its full length. Why?
Good example of patience.........
Every successful man, woman, organization, minister, church, marriage, company, relationship etc takes years of patience and learning before it becomes the best.
2 weeks ago I was in hurry to get my book in print, but now after learning about the life of a bamboo, I am ready to wait.
It's not going to be easy for me because naturally I am an impatient person, but I am willing to learn.
I will wait...even if it takes me 6 years like the bamboo, I will wait and learn.
Food for thought: this week let's strike a deal...develop the ability to be patient, in everything you do and with everybody you meet. It will not be easy, especially with all that surrounds you, but it will come, little by little.
Notez Bien: I hope we are still reading our books.
Confession: " keeping my rule of 5 is the most difficult thing I have ever done, but I am trying..lol.
