GIVE IT YOUR ALL OR NOTHING

I’ve discovered that the difference between success and failure is giving and receiving. Everything is transactional. Just like the stock market, forex exchange etc. You decide how much you want to invest and know exactly how much you’re receiving. If you want to achieve anything, you have to be specific of how much you’re willing to sacrifice and there are two things involved here :

1. Acceptance- What ever it takes requires accepting the facts, the possibility. You have to be willing to let go of control and accept what is on the table. Accepting is a two way street. It is letting go and also being in control at the same time.

2. Believe — As the word says “be- live. What does it mean to be-lieve? Believing simply means knowing and accepting. It is unwise to do something you know nothing of isn’t it ? You have to first believe it is possible! This requires GUTS. You have to be courageous and as you know it is a risk. You cannot achieve something you don’t believe is possible. It’s common sense.

When you get to realize that success is a trade and you have to give to get. Then the next question is how bad do you want it ?

Are you willing to go all the way ? To give your all or nothing ? Or do you have fears and doubts that it might not work due to previous experiences, self sabotage, or even fear of actually accomplishing it? These are all forms of control and success doesn’t like control. It likes flow.. surrender.

Take a look at the most successful people you know, or observe, they usually are people that just do whatever they want, dress however they choose, wear whatever they want, and everyone adores their principles. They are mostly school dropouts ( remember you can only drop out of school if you are courageous ). Fearful people will be scared to even dare to miss tests and exams because they are followers not leaders who can do whatever they want. But guess what? Society teaches the opposite. You have to follow the rules to be successful. Whose rules by the way ? “The successful people’s rules”. Isn’t that ridiculous?

You are all that there is. There are billions of cells everyday in your body that are working non stop to keep your digestive, respiratory, reproductive, nervous and all other systems in you alive and healthy. What does that make you ? A boss ! You are the boss of your life. Choose yourself ! Give your all or nothing so that the cells working tirelessly without pay inside you will be more than excited to work even better because you will be making them happy.

Time waits for no one. We don’t have much time left so don’t waste it.Be picky how you spend your time. Be mindful who you invest your time in. Remember, wasted time is worse than wasted money. You can recover money, but once time is wasted. It’s gone ! That time becomes lost forever.

Give it all that you’ve got. Place a bet on yourself. Go all or nothing. Because it’s either you’re alive or dead. There is no in between. Invest your all into your happiness. It’s the best decision you will ever make in this lifetime.

Imagine a life where all the decisions are intentionally made by you. So you’re fully aware of the consequences of your actions and not because it’s a rule made by your fellow human being of equal organs in their body just as you. That is the life you deserve. Think deeply about all the times you could have done something different but didn’t because of rules”, laws etc. Not encouraging you to go breaking laws. But inviting you to begin making decisions that are self thought, self conscious, self dependent and transform your entire existence.

Wake up from the spell you’ve been under and claim your power back. It’s time to grow some balls! Give it your all or if you rather, give it your nothing. The choice is yours.

Everyday is a test

If you thought that life’s tests were over when you finished school, guess again. There are so many tests in life, and they can be much more difficult than biology or physics. And there isn’t that much homework we can do to prepare for these kinds of tests, either. When we pass life’s tests, we discover that we do have that inner strength after all.


In school you are taught a lesson and given a test, in life you are given a test and taught a lesson.

Have you ever wondered what the purpose of your life is? Common answers are “happiness,” financial success”, true ❤ or “satisfaction.” While these are all worthwhile goals, I say the purpose of your life is to face head on, every challenge, every test, as a chance for you to become the person you are meant to be. Life is a test for you to be and become your best and highest self.

When you face the tests of life, learn from them and grow with them, you become that person. The tests of life require you to call on the inner resources residing deep inside you.

In life you are given a test that teaches you a lesson and it turns out to be that everyday is a TEST. Every moment there is a new challenge, ( which is always an opportunity).

In my local language we say “ problem no dey finish”, which means there is always something else after this. We have to find our way in the world, and all along we face tests of physical illness, mental troubles, financial reversals, unfulfilled expectations, and loss.

Life is indeed a test of many things, our faith & faithlessness, our convictions & priorities, our endurance & patience, and in the very end, our ultimate desires.

The way of a true spiritual life actually begins where we are now in the mess of our lives.

We’ve lost touch with our souls. We’ve been nourishing our minds, our relational skills, our theological knowledge, our psychological well-being, our physiological health… but we’ve abandoned our souls. ‘Mike Yaconelli.’

The most powerful weapon on earth is a human soul that’s on fire! Ignite that spark by recognizing the lessons of all you had to go through to be where you are right now.

On the video below, i talked about how to recognize the tests so you don’t have to repeat the lessons in order to graduate to the best and highest version of YOU!


Intention and Attention

You have the power to create a reality that excites you on every level. Through your intentions you can land your dream relationship, travel to places you thought you’d never go, and live a life that at one point may have felt out of reach. The possibilities are endless. But it’s not the intention alone that brews this seemingly magical power.

Intention is internal ( yin ) while attention is external (yang). Just another choice of words for Yin and yang. Intentions and goals are different. Intention is like a theme and goals are the ways to achieve that intention. For example, the intention can be to stay fit and healthy, the goal can be to run a 5 kilometre distance within half an hour daily.

An intention is the budding flower given life by all of the underlying thoughts, words, and actions in the rich soil below the surface. The attention is the energy and focus extended externally.

So, how do you start your regular day? Do you wake up with or without a goal or set specific intentions? For me, everyday is a new page, a new script. I set new intentions every single day. Sometimes the same intention for some days and I “pay attention” to the same thing by taking action.

If you have not been successful in manifesting what you want, then try and re-examine your intention. Sometimes double checking to ensure your intentions are correctly created can bring the results you desire.

Everything that happens in the universe begins with intention. When I decide to buy a birthday present, shake my legs , or call a friend, it all starts with intention.

WHAT IS INTENTION?


Intention is probably one of the most essential parts of healing, abundance, manifestation, personal and spiritual development. Your intention is a large determinator of any success or failure you experience. Intention is the blueprint of your experiences and the reality you create. The right intention and, more importantly, being aware of the intentions you are setting, is very essential.

WHAT IS ATTENTION?

Attention is defined as the act of concentrating and keeping one’s mind focused on something. However, alertness is the initial step in the attention process. If we are going to do something, or listen to someone, the first thing that we need is to feel alert. In other words, we need to feel like our battery is charged, like our brains have energy. Just the way our bodies need physical energy if we are going to run, our brains need mental energy if we are going to think.

Your intention and attention is the yin and yang. The internal and external. The very essence of life. While, Attention is awareness of the here and now in a focal and perceptive way. Paying attention is the first step in the learning and growth process.

In order to manifest anything at all,you must set an intention and focus your energy (pay attention) to that in order to bring it to life.

On the video below, I dived a bit deep into what intention and attention is and how we use it to manifest.

Please watch, learn and share to as many people as you would love to.

Get your Butt out of the way

Ever wondered why they say the “Truth is bitter”? Well, it is bitter because it is straightforward, direct, and doesn’t always feel or taste good. Just as certain kinds of food or drinks, maybe teas taste quite awful but are very good for your health. In fact, most medicines are usually bitter. See where I’m going with this ?

We have grown and outgrown so many things internally and externally as we evolve on this planet as a specie over the centuries but one thing that has been the same since the beginning of time is the bitter taste of the truth and why people dislike or find it difficult to identify it.

Tell yourself the truth. If you need to yell at yourself to get the message do it, if you need to scream or shout or cry. Do it. Just freaking do it. Get your butt( your buts) out of the way. Stop making excuses. Sitting on your butt, feeling sorry for yourself will not save or change your life and situation. You have to get up, face your shit and get out of your own way with your words and daily attitude.

You know why it’s important to get out of your way?

No one will save you. Unfortunately. It’s not anyone’s duty but yours, you have to master yourself and learn to not look outside of yourself otherwise you’ll keep being disappointed or worse distracted. Remember, tomorrow never comes plus everyone and everything is a distraction. You come first. Your priority is YOU. Yes YOU!. Your physical, mental and emotional health comes first. So in order to be a better person, irregardless of what you might have going on for you, You have to separate the beans from the shaft. Although, it may seem shaky at first, you have to keep moving. You are never alone. Keep trying. Your story may be the motivation someone out there needs. Don’t stop. You are more than capable and this is what you signed up for.

You must get out of your head and get your butt out of the way. This is how you become the highest and best version you can be.

Let’s get it fam!

Self Judgment

We live in a world of control. A world that requires push and pull, as in, it requires gravity to exist. It’s no wonder why we are always at war with ourselves. However, we must learn to be in control of ourselves, what concerns us, what matters to us in our everyday lifestyle, not just personally, but environmentally, universally.

We must learn to find balance in the chaos, no matter how overwhelmed you might be. The fact is, you have every reason to be here right now and if you are reading this right now , and it happens to be that you find yourself confused, doubting, or listening to that criticizing voice in your head, critiquing your life, telling you what you can and cannot say or do, you have the power to transform the energy to love. No matter what you may be experiencing, do not judge yourself. It’s happening for a reason plus that is not your duty, it’s not your responsibility. Your responsibility is, to “Do as you may in alignment with your conscience” and let the rest play out.

Stop criticizing yourself. Choose self love. If you love yourself, others will love you, if you judge and criticize yourself, others will judge and criticize you. It is what it is. You should know that whenever you judge yourself, you insert fear into your aura and that lowers your vibration, your battery life, your electro magnetic voltage. Look at it like a phone fully charged, and the more you interact with the phone the battery life reduces, for instance, fear would be like an app, Instagram or maybe a game you’re used to playing on the phone, your battery weakens way faster because of the amount of energy the app has and the time you spend on it. Your daily energy and lifespan increases or reduces based on what you do every day. So, be nice to yourself, be kind, practice self love instead of self judgement.

As it turns out, there are so many different things happening in our society today, distracting, upsetting and emotionally controlling people. As a result, anxiety, depression, fear, self doubt, criticism, self judgment and different types mental issues gradually begin to flood in.. It is your duty to be responsible for what you think, eat and do because you are a part of the universe, a part of the whole and if you do your duty, others will do theirs and on and on.. Then, in little or no time the world will become light again, even better than we have imagined. It will be the change we’ve been collectively working on.
