How to #PressForProgress On International Women's day





All the women in the house say hay-ho!!!

Happy international women’s day to us- the womb men with the curvy, soft bumps.

What an honour to have a day dedicated to us. An honour we very well deserve!

If you are a man, don’t feel bad as international men’s day is almost here (November 19).

So the theme this year is #PressForProgress. I’m taking a few minutes off my full desk to help you distill the theme into power packs that you can gym on to become deeply fulfilled.

    1.   Redefine the term: 

     Progress means different things to different people. For one person, it is to move from being Miss to Mrs; for another it is to move from one level on their job to a higher level. It could mean graduation for one and matriculation for the other. It could also mean having baby number three or getting a divorce finalized. It is up to you to decide what progress is to you.


Progress is a forward or upward movement towards a destination. The key words being forward/upward and destination. This brings us to point number two.

    2.   Have a clear destination:

     You must begin everyday of your life with a clear destination in mind. Where do you want to arrive in your finances, in your marriage, with your children, in your business, in your walk with God?  You must begin your day knowing where.


One very rewarding way to set up a clear destination is to add precise emotions to your destination.

Below is an example of a destination with precise emotion.

“At the end of today, I would have hung out with my husband/boyfriend and return home happy; because I will thoroughly enjoy the date regardless of what may come up.

The precise emotion here is happiness.


Taking charge of how we want to feel at the end of the day empowers us to make decisions and take actions that eventually lead us to our desired state.


What’s your desired destination today? You can write it down. Writing helps your unconscious mind grasp your goal more quickly.

If you have a daily clear destination you will more easily reach your short or long term goals in each area of your life.



    3.   Embrace baby steps:

    Women often feel bad when they aren’t going at same pace as others.  No need to poison your soul with sadness and gloom just because you aren’t taking long leaps yet. The adult who competes at the Olympic today, once fell severally as a baby.


Embrace your baby steps. It doesn’t mean you are failing. It just means you are pressing. Keep getting back up and try again using a differently improved strategy.

Copy? (Military term for “do you understand?”)


     4.   Press Differently:

To press is to push firmly (Cambridge). To #PressForProgress is to push firmly towards a desired result in any sphere.
Pressing isn’t useful if it’s all about the effort applied. It makes better sense when the effort is towards achieving a desired purpose.

You pressed a certain way last time for a community change, for impart in a certain sector and it didn’t work.  It could be that your mode of PRESSure isn’t commensurate to the height of your desired goal. 
Don’t quit. Just press differently.

Pressing differently might mean seeking collaborators, praying (declarations and decrees) specifically for days over the matter, enrolling for a course, signing up with a mentor or letting yourself be vulnerable with your spouse or significant other. 



    5.   Re-evaluate your strategies: 


    Do you really spend time to score your efforts towards a desired result? How often do you critically analyze your strategies?

You might have heard of SWOT. An acronym for Strength, weaknesses, Opportunities and Threats. While this is mostly used for business analysis, it can be used on your strategy towards that goal or vision.

 Ask often, what are the strengths of this strategy? What are its weaknesses? What are its opportunities? What are its threats?

An initial evaluation and periodicay re-evaluation of your strategies would keep you stay on track as you #PressForProgress.

WHY DO “LOOSE” GIRLS MARRY FASTER?

“If this life has anything to gain at all, I’ll count it lost if I can’t hear you feel you, cause I need you…” rang my amazing ringtone by Lecrae. I picked up the sleek darling to see who misses me. It was this pretty friend of mine.
Ada (Not real name) and I met at the University of Nigeria, Nsukka in our first year. We had a lot in common and she was just my type (whatever that means) LOL. Anyway, I was (and still am) literally and figuratively in love with God and I noticed her heart was committed to God and His standards too.
Well, we graduated four years later and you know how life happens. We haven’t really kept in touch for a while. I heard sometime back that she was engaged and I called to say congratulations.  We talked about how life had been since after school and how we both are still fervently loving and serving the Lord. She said her wedding was three months away and I told her I definitely needed the aso-ebi (A uniform material sold to people who wish to attend an event).

HOW TO AWAKEN YOUR PROPHETIC ABILITY

If you are female and sense prophetic gifts on your life?
Here is a bible based, Christ Centered institution to help you develop and effectively use your prophetic gifts.
In simple terms, Prophecy can be defined as hearing the voice of God and speaking what He says. 
This gift is basically experienced in two ways. Auditory- Where  the one receiving the message hears words, which they then repeat or release  to those to whom one is sent.

Visual- This is referred to as The SEER gifting. Here, the receiver sees a message through some type of picture, which they then release or speak about as led.
These pictures are either received while awake by means of visions, while asleep through dreams or while half awake in trances.
Most prophetic people will experience both aspects at various times, but they tend to have one that is more dominant or frequent.
Can you relate with any of the above?
