A must read ” BECOMING MICHELLE OBAMA”

” Becoming,” was released in November 2018 and became the top selling book of 2018 and still my favourite till date . It is considered one of the best selling memoirs of all time.

l finally got around to reading this amazing, thoughtful and inspirational book. Will l say that l’m blown away? Yes

There is a lot to say about this book but l will mention a few. ” Becoming ,” is a book filled with encouragement , hope  and believe in the future. Every page is an openness of her heart

This book is an openness of her life. Talking about Michelle Obama’s childhood in Chicago , her marriage, time in the white House and current President of the United State of America Donald Trump.

l connect to this book because l see so many of what l want to be in her and she represents a lot of things that we already are . Her strength, love, focus and tough minded spirit  just gives me so much faith in what l’m embarking on at the moment. l absolutely love this book, phenomenal.

You get to read and understand the rejections, criticisms and doubts she went through even from her high school counsellor . Despite all storm she came out strong and successful. 

She reveals  the difficulties in her marriage with Barrack and how they conceive both children using Vitro fertilisation (IVF). This is an encouragement for anyone going through such situation or any other situation never to give up. There is hope and assurance in every situation.

What are the Lessons l learnt:

Never be afraid to leap when required. We achieve success at different pace even if we start a race at the same time ,we finish at different times.

Never under estimate the knowledge and power you carry.

Don’t let anyone pull you down, like Michelle Obama said ” Stay true to yourself and never let what somebody says distract you from your goals.

Carry yourself with honour and dignity. Be faithful to yourself

Your struggle today is just for a while , with hard work ,dedication and determination, you can make things happen. 

You need to read this book to actually understand why people are raving about it.

Grab yourself a copy of this book by clicking the link below and don’t forget to gift a friend or family member , remember that sharing is caring.

What book are you enjoying at the moment and why do you love  it?

Love,

10 THINGS YOU MUST GIVE UP TO MOVE FORWARD

Moving forward could be really difficult if you don’t know how to start or what to do at all. Are you finding it difficult to move forward, like your friends are doing better than you, you are not where you are suppose to be or you just came out of a toxic relationship and you can’t look pass it.l’ve got good news for you because l use to be that person . How did l move forward in life? The answer is practising and doing these 10 things.

10 Things you must give up to move forward

Opinion of others : Do not let the opinions of others control your life. l’m going to use myself as an example.l use to be that person that let others opinions determine what l do, how l feel and just determine my life .l came to the realisation that their opinion is their opinion and they are entitled to it .It shouldn’t determine who l am or what l should do so stop letting others opinion affect you.It’s not what others think but what you think about yourself that counts.

Fear of Failure: Don’t be afraid to fail .Every great man as gone through failure or rejections before and they are successful today .When you fail, you learn from your failure, move on and do better. Don’t ever stay down and stop because of failure, put the pieces together and do better.

Running from Problems that should be fix: STOP! STOP! running instead FIX!FIX! Face it and Fix it.That problem isn’t going no where so make sure to fix it and free your mind in order to move on.

Surround yourself with good company: l’m sure that you’ve heard this from so many people but it’s so true. l had to give up some horrible friends and people that weren’t adding value to me. You have to realise that not everyone has to stay, if they have to go then they have to go. Good company in a journey makes the way smoother and shorter. They have to support what you do, uplift you and call forth your best.

HOW TO REACH YOUR GOALS

It is still early into 2019 and most of us have our goals and new year resolutions written down and excited about them only to get discouraged or unmotivated because things are not going according to plans.These steps have helped me to stick to my goals and achieve them efficiently.These can be apply to any goals.

MY BULLET BOOK

There are no goals that cannot be achieve if you have the right mindset.Be excited about how to achieve them as you were when setting those goals.

I have learnt that having the right and positive mindset towards my goals and understanding that life happens , there will be challenges on the path to success but would never let that derail or stop me from reaching my goals.

HOW TO ACTUALLY ACHIEVE YOUR GOALS IN 2019 watch the video below and don’t forget to subscribe for weekly videos on Lifestyles, Finance and beauty

BE SPECIFIC ABOUT YOUR GOALS

All this means is “what exactly is your goal”, we want to be able to define the exact steps to take and do. Say for example

  • ‘You want to stay healthy” can be “l will attend exercise classes every Wednesday and Friday at 7am
  • “I want to spend more time with the kids”can be “l will go on a road trip with the kids every second Saturday of the month”

One of my goals for 2019 is to stay consistent with my Youtube channel . l now do block recording and edit every Monday and Sunday.l also post twice in the week.

Being precise about your goals helps you break it down easily, clear your mind and focus on the tasks ahead.

WRITE AND BREAK THEM DOWN

In order to be specific, you need to write those goals down .l came across a bullet book at WHSmith “The little Bullet Book Be gorgeously organised” and this journal has been helpful in organising and breaking down my goals. You can use any book or a planner that works for you .You can also use the traditional method too, “create a moodboard” ,putting pictures on it .

BE REALISTIC ABOUT YOUR GOALS

Don’t set a goals that is not realistic for yourself. Be sincere and honest when setting your goals .Take baby steps at a time and even days that we don’t get motivated use your willpower to see you through the day.

SCHEDULING TASKS

I recently started using my google calendar efficiently .It helps me stay focus ,organise and get things done.I schedule everything that concerns me now and l can see changes in my success.When you add your goals to your calendar ,you are most likely able to do them . Trello app is also a great planner that can be downloaded on your phone,Laptop or iPad.

HAVE A MENTOR

Your mentor or support system can be your friend, spouse, cousin or coach.It is great to have someone when the going get tough or when you are feeling unmotivated. You can also join a support group , remember that we should surround ourselves with positive people and we attract people that are like us.

DON’T BE HARD ON YOURSELF

Don’t ever be hard on yourself when you miss a task ,take a deep breath, remember to keep going and put your eyes on the prize.Be grateful for what you’ve achieved so far .

l hope you found these steps useful . You can start now and l believe that you will never look back. Feel free to come back to this post or video for motivation and little boost when you are feeling down.

What is one approach that has helped you stick to your goals?l love to know…..

HOW TO APPRECIATE YOURSELF AND EMBRACE WHAT YOU HAVE (End of the year message 2018)

APPRECIATE YOURSELF

Am l the only one who feels beautiful standing in front of the mirror every day .You think it’s an imagination?No, darling it is called appreciating and loving yourself .The world of social media and influencers has change the way we see and love ourselves. we see strangers on Facebook,instagram and other social media platforms with perfect bodies even when we know that they’ve had work done to their body, we still want to be like them and live their life.Do you truly know the people you follow on social media,?Do they add value to your life or make you feel less of yourself ? Do you feel insecure of the way you look when you see their photos? lf your answer is Yes, then it’s time to unfollow them and look for someone or people that will add positive energy to your life.

Keeping it real with yourself and loving the way you are, regardless of your height, shape, nose, mouth, ears, head, the way you walk, talk, smile or dresses.

SIX GREAT THINGS TO KEEP IN YOUR HEART AS YOU END 2018 

1.There is someone  that will appreciate and love you but first you have to love yourself.  

2.Speak positively to yourself every day, every morning, second,minute and hour , remember that people have their opinion of you but what you think of yourself is the ultimate.  

3.Read positive books that will uplift your spirit and motivate you to do more and stand out.  

 4. Move close to people that appreciate and encourage you to be yourself. Write a note ,quote or short letter to yourself every now and then.

 5.Come out of your comfort zone and make yourself happy.
