STUCKED IN A RUT? 15 QUESTIONS TO LIBERATE YOURSELF




I recently relocated from western Nigeria to the east. Being born Igbo (what we call people from the east) did not automatically equip me to live in this part of Nigeria. I clearly have a few things to iron out quickly so I can thrive as excellently as I am designed to.

Coming from the noisy, boisterous city of Lagos, Anambra (Awka) is a little too quiet. Oh well, I think I like it especially because I do not have to worry about trailers packed on major roads and traffic. For the first time since forever, driving is a leisure (If you have lived in Lagos, you will understand).

Changing location is one of the many reasons people feel stucked in a rut.  You may catch yourself living like you are in a pool and not really swimming. 

You could also feel like you are stucked in a rut if life throws too much at you, leaving you unprepared to deal with everything that’s going on in your life.

You could feel stucked in a rut when for a long time than expected; you become unsure of what you want to do next in life.
Some signs that you are stucked in a rut are

1. You wish to be creative on something you normally would be creative at, but it appears the creative side of you is on an unsolicited vacation.

2. You are getting things done but still don’t feel like you are doing much.

3. You’ll like to introduce something new and exciting to your life but feel like you will never have enough energy or time for it.

4.  You generally feel stressed, tired and unfulfilled.

5. You appear to be getting too comfortable when you know you really should be making significant progress.

Everyone, including the most successful people in life, get stucked in a rut at one time or the other.  So don't feel like you are doomed.

Below are 15 questions to sincerely answer in other to liberate you as soon as possible.


 What is it that I want?
1. What would be my ideal outcome? Take a moment to get very clear in your mind (or on paper!) what being unstuck would look, feel and sound like before continuing.

Identifying Options
So now you know what you want,

2. What specifically have I done so far? What worked and what didn’t?

3. What do I have already (Skills and resources) that could move me forward

4. What research could I do to help me find the first (or next) step?

5. What do I need to do before I do anything else?

6. Who else could I ask for help in achieving my goal?


Taking Action
 Look at the list of idea and options you now have,

7. What would be the smallest or easiest first step for me?

8. Which options or actions grab or strikes me the most?

9. How could I make the tasks/actions more enjoyable or fun?

10. Who else could help me in completing this/these action/s?

11. What’s one action I could take in the next 10 minutes?

12. What are three actions you could take that would make sense this week?

Commitment

Do something! Choose your actions and commit


13. When specifically will I do this/these action/s? Include the day and time.

14. On a scale of 1 to 10, how likely am I to complete each action?      
- If it’s below an 8, then ask what is stopping you from completing the action – and make this your first action.
15. How do you normally sabotage yourself - and what will you do differently this time?

Go Push Your Bars,

Committed to Your Fulfilment

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?

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).
