    Getting Your Attitude Right!

  • Saturday, 21 February 2015


    Yes, you heard me right. Why must you eat Kote? Is it by force? I’m sure you are wondering what I mean by this.

    Actually I’m not talking about the literal Kote fish. For you to understand where am coming from and where am going to, let me explain better.

    It all started 2 weeks ago after 3hours of hectic drive from school. I finally got home with high anticipation that I will eat a sumptuous meal to really end the day well. Little did I know that what was ahead was more than I was expecting. 

    fish, kote, titus, octopus

    Dinner was served and in my dish was filled with well wrapped wheat meal, vegetable soup and fish. 
    It was a great sight to behold. I was enjoying the meal until I took some fish into my mouth and my countenance changed.
    It was not the regular fish I know. It was just not what I was expecting. It was not the kind of fish I was used to and that ended my meal. That was how this blog post was conceived.
    You might say “OK Abraham. I don’t get it. What is it with the fish story?” 

    5 Shocking Truths I learnt From My Fish Accident

    1. Life can be Unpredictable

    Someone once said that life has so many unpredictable moments, many paths and memorable times. So enjoy the surprises, explore new paths and cherish the moments
    In my case, It never crossed my mind that I would taste a strange fish.

    2. Do not get use to norms

    The truth about life is that if you all keep sticking to the norm, you will remain stagnant in some things. Learn to ask the “why?” questions

    They help you see things in a different light and therefore more room for creativity. If you keep believing that the way you perceive life is just the way it is, then you might just be sitting on a single story.

    3. Comfort zones can be zones

    Move out of your comfort zone. You can only grow if you are willing to feel awkward and uncomfortable when you try something new. - Brian Tracy

    Some people are just so mentally depressed that what they do all day is feed on junk ideas. 
    They never discover themselves but just spend each day swimming in mediocrity. 

    They successfully cover it up by saying “That’s just who I am”. When in the actual sense they don’t just have the guts to try new things


    4. Break new grounds

    There's something about taking a plough and breaking new ground. It gives you energy. - Ken Kesey
    Energy is the ability to do work. The conventional thing is that to gain energy you must feed yourself. There is another non-conventional form of energy you get by burning up your ideas and potentials. It is called “Innovation”.

    Yeah! That is the energy that has brought about development in the world. Where do you belong? Are you the eater or the giver?

    5. Keep breaking grounds

    It is one thing to break new grounds and it’s another thing to keep breaking grounds. I know that true success lies in you beating your past records. 

    When you get a grand success the first time, you never know it might just be a luck. One way to know if it’s luck is by trying again! 

    Some people don’t quite agree with this but I know one thing for sure. I love challenging my past records!

    Note: All Bible citations are taken from the King James Version.

    don't crush your dreams, killer weights

    1. IMMORAL THOUGHTS

    The mind (heart) is the place where all good and evil originate from. Every evil ever perpetrated originated from the mind. 

    The scripture says “guide your heart with all diligence, for out of it flow the issues of life”. If the mind is captured, the whole body has been captured. 

    One of these thoughts that is really eating deep into the lives of youths is “Sexual thoughts”. Immoral thoughts of sex in whatever form can be the very of any believer that fails to deal with it sincerely.

    For an instance, about four (4) years ago, I was a victim. I could hardly go a day without imagining myself having sex with various girls. I got bored of thoughts, so I moved on into porn. I was a mess. 

    I give Glory to God for redeeming me. I’m completely redeemed whether you believe it or not.
    Whatever immoral thought you harbour in your heart, you need to drop them before they drop you.
    “Finally brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.” – Philippians 4:8

    2. PRIDE

    The wicked thing about pride is that you might not even know that you exhibit it. Peradventure, you have forgotten; pride goes before a fall. It’s not enough to know but you must be careful not to allow it linger any longer.

    Anyone who consistently disobeys God’s instruction is exhibiting pride. It means you don’t reverence and therefore who is He to instruct you around. 

    Pride has been the bane of many Christians. Sometimes we attain a level of spirituality and we think we are beyond correction and you just make yourself  'omnipotent’.

    I have seen some senior ministers in ministry who thinks attending Sunday school or bible study is a waste of time. Perhaps, maybe they think they have outgrown such meetings.
    “But he giveth more grace. Wherefore he saith, God resisteth the proud, but giveth grace to the humble.” – James 4:6

    3. LAZINESS

    Poor preparations always lead to poor performance. Most poor preparations can be traced back to laziness. 

    Before writing this post, I was feeling kind of lazy. I didn’t feel like doing anything but lay on my bed. Yes, we all have those moments but the truth is that we must take charge before it becomes a habit.

    I took charge of that feeling, gathered courage to write this post.

    I have realised that the best way to overcome laziness is to do that thing you don’t want to do. Tell yourself that you are dying every day because time is life. You only have one lifetime to get it right.
    “Not slothful in business; fervent in spirit; serving the Lord;” – Romans 12:11

     

    4. LOOSE TONGUES

    Each time you use curse words, talk too much, confess negative words, etc, you endanger yourself as a Christian. You can’t afford to misuse your tongue by cursing people or get involved in unhealthy discussions or even say evil things to yourself.

    The power of life and death lies in the tongue. You can always trace the activities of the tongue back to your thoughts. Scripture says “Out of the abundance of the heart, the mouth speaks.” If we want to regulate the tongue, always regulate the heart.”

    Use your tongue for life. Spread the gospel, inspire someone, pray for someone, speak positive words to yourself, encourage someone, praise God, etc.
    “He that hath no rule over his own spirit is like a city that is broken down, and without walls “- Proverbs 25:28 

     

    5. ANGER

    It’s quite true that none of the things I previously mentioned outweighs each other but i would say anger is to be treated with extra caution. Anger can destroy the individual and the things or persons around him/her.

    Anger spreads like wild fire if not contained. Do you remember when I referred to anger as “hulk mode”? Everyone has the potential of switching into hulk mode but the good news is that with the help of the Holy Spirit, we can extinguish it.

    Some people justify being angry but I guess that’s a topic for another day.

    Anger comes in various forms; bitterness, malice, envy, resentment, intolerance, revenge, wrath, hatred, sedition, jealousy, attack, gossip, sarcasm, unforgiveness, etc.
    “He that is slow to anger is better than the mighty; and he that ruleth his spirit than he that taketh a city.”- Proverbs 16:32

    6. FEAR

    Fear can come in different forms; worry anxiety, timidity, indecision, superstition, withdrawal, loneliness, over-aggression, doubts, inferiority, cowardice, suspicion, depression, hesitancy, haughtiness, shyness, etc.

    It’s not only that fear dampens your spirit, it also lead to diseases which in turn can bring about untimely death. 

    In the scripture, the number of times recorded where God said ‘fear not’ is over 400 times. This can tell us how important it is to keep a courageous spirit.
    “Therefore I say unto you, take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment?” – Matthew 6:25

    Seven Steps for Dropping Unnecessary weights

    Over the years, I have carried some of these weights and I’ll share some secrets I learnt from Tim Lahaye the author the bestselling book “Why you act the way you do”. 

    According to him, it may not seem scientific to some, but I know it’s biblical and it works! 

    1. See your Weights as Sin.
    2. Confess them anytime they occur.
    3. Ask God to take them away.
    4. Forgive the person who caused it. (if any)
    5. Give thanks to God always.
    6. Consecrate your thought pattern. (via God’s word)
    7. Repeat the above formulas each time you see traces.

    Life like a journey, drop the weights

    Life is a journey. There is a starting point at birth and a finishing point at death. Life can be likened to a race and every man is running this race.

    The journey of some is like climbing up a hill pushing or pulling a boulder. Are you living such a life? You keep trying to pass the course of life while carrying unnecessary weights. 

    Climbing up a hill with a boulder makes it more challenging and strenuous.
    There are a lot of people who believe they can do anything in life. This is quite true but as a Christian, you are just a sojourner in this world and we can’t do just anything.

    The Christian journey can be challenging. This is why you will need all the help you can get from the Holy Spirit.

    We must be able to do away with those extra weights by the help of the Holy Spirit that won’t take you to our final destination. 

    These weights vary amongst individuals but you should be able to identify and deal with it as soon as possible before they deal with you.


    7 Setbacks You should avoid

    Generally, a weight is anything you cling to that hinders you from realising a goal. We should examine a few.

    • Immoral Thoughts
    • Pride
    • Laziness
    • Loose tongue
    • Lust
    • Anger
    • Fear


    I know quite well that you must have heard and read about them before but the truth is that we can never over emphasize on them because these are the common tools that the Satan use against Christians

    Sometimes, the problem is that they manifest themselves in ways that are not really obvious but it takes a man that is sensitive in the spirit to discern them quickly. 

    NOTE: This is not to make us self righteous or sin conscious but just to remind us of these things that can be harmful to our walk with God

    I hope you are enjoying this weekend. I will continue in my next post and we will see some things together.

    Hello Friends,

    I’m starting this post by officially saying

    HAPPY NEW YEAR!

    It’s good to have a new beginning. Everyone loves to be given another trial. Everyone deserves a second chance.

    I for one deserve a second chance especially on this blog. This blog Last year (2014), was a silent ground. I only published five times. It was that bad. There were so many factors that I can’t speak about now.

    However, a lot of exciting happened to me last year. It was a year of discovery and development. Well, let’s leave last year aside.

    This year (2015) started on a good note on my side. I crossed over to my Final year in college. It’s really exciting yet, I'm nervous.
    To crown it up, I'm back in action on this blog. Let’s just hope I'm back for good: D

    Hello Friends,

    I’m starting this post by officially saying

    HAPPY NEW YEAR!

    It’s good to have a new beginning. Everyone loves to be given another trial. Everyone deserves a second chance.

    I for one deserve a second chance especially on this blog. This blog Last year (2014), was a silent ground. I only published five times. It was that bad. There were so many factors that I can’t speak about now.

    However, a lot of exciting happened to me last year. It was a year of discovery and development. Well, let’s leave last year aside.

    This year (2015) started on a good note on my side. I crossed over to my Final year in college. It’s really exciting yet, I'm nervous.
    To crown it up, I'm back in action on this blog. Let’s just hope I'm back for good: D

    To officially start with this year, I'm doing a full recap of my all-time best post based on the number of page views. Remember, we are here to keep inspiring you.

    Opening verse

    “For those whom he foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the image of his Son, in order that he might be the first born among many brothers. And those whom he predestined he also called, and those whom he called he also justified and those whom he justified he also glorified. “ - Romans 8: 29


     If you fail to discover why you are on earth, Satan and men will happily sell theirs to you. - Pastor. E.A Adeboye


     God always has a purpose for taking a person through various departments. Sometimes, it is a preparation for greater things to come. - Pastor. E.A Adeboye

    You were created for a purpose, even if you were conceived by mistake, you are not an accident. - Pastor. E.A Adeboye

    Ambition is man’s way into his destiny while vision is God’s path into His destiny for man. - Pastor. E.A Adeboye

     Being single minded is the secret of success of the saints who had gone before us. - Pastor. E.A Adeboye

     To walk in the footsteps of the Lord successfully, you must be a man of one purpose. - Pastor. E.A Adeboye

     The secret of enjoying everlasting blessings from the Lord is to make Him our goal. - Pastor. E.A Adeboye

    Well actually I don't think it's a bunch of bad things that send us to hell. I think it is rejection of God's grace. - Rick Warren

     If you fail to follow the plan, God can replace you. Go ask Saul, he is a witness – Ologundudu Abraham

     Any time God calls you, He endorses you before sending you out. – Ologundudu Abraham

     Your calling and what God has given you to fulfil it are different. - Tehinse Korede

    Singing is not the calling. Singing is the avenue to fulfil the calling. – Tehinse Korede

    The calling is that when I sing, men should come to the knowledge of Jesus and embrace Jesus. – Tehinse Korede.

     Knowing who you are in Christ is the first step in fulfilling purpose. – Ologundudu Abraham

    Your essence is not just in knowing your purpose but fulfilling it. – Ologundudu Abraham

    You will be doing a great harm to yourself if you think your God revealed purpose is too big for you. – Ologundudu Abraham

     Why did God create man when he had angels and elders that always worship him? You are special to God. – Ologundudu Abraham

     You should never be carried away with the magnitude of God’s purpose for your life. – Ologundudu Abraham

     God is looking for people to use, and if you can get usable, he will wear you out. The most dangerous prayer you can pray is this: 'Use me.' - Rick Warren

Think of the grand glory of an oak tree. God’s intention when He made the acorn was the oak tree. His intention for us is ‘… the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ.’ Many deaths must go into our reaching that measure, many letting-goes. When you look at the oak tree, you don’t feel that the loss’ of the acorn is a very great loss. The more you perceive God’s purpose in your life, the less terrible the losses seem.Elisabeth Elliot

     The will of God is not something you add to your life. It’s a course you choose. You either line yourself up with the Son of God…or you capitulate to the principle which governs the rest of the world.”Elisabeth Elliot

     Make sure you are doing what God wants you to do--then do it with all your strength. George Washington

    A woman with a mopstick

    Hello Dear readers,

    I promised to share this story with in my last post. 

    I was going through my blog draft and I found this unfinished post.

    It was meant to be published a long time ago.

    This is a true life story. It's short but i employ you to learn from this. This story was a testimony my dad shared sometime back.

    This is a story of a mysterious cleaner in a local church here in Nigeria. 


    She would come as early as 6:00am on Sunday morning's to clean the church; she would sweep the floor, clean the chairs and even wash the toilet. 


    Every cleaning you could ever think of, she did them.

    It wasn't possible for her to do it on Saturday's because different departments in the church usually meet for previews, rehearsals. etc.

    Each time, the church workers get to church by 7:00am, they only come to meet the church well set for the meeting. Nobody knew how and perhaps nobody was extra curious to find out. To some, it was probably a relief.

    This woman continued with this selfless act for months without disclosing her identity but unknowingly, her reward was just around the corner.

    According to my Dad, one fateful day, a man who was not a member of that church had the leading by the Holy Spirit to hand over the key of a brand new Mercedes Benz 230 as far back as 2002, to anyone he meets in that church by 6:30am.

    This man in his "innocent church mind" thought he would meet the pastor of the church. He went ahead with the instruction and as usual he met the old woman in the church.


    He reluctantly gave the car keys to her and told her how he was led of the Holy Spirit to do that.

    This elderly woman, who wasn't a literate and in her late 60's was really excited! She was given Mercedes Benz 230. Though I have no idea how much it cost way back in 2002 but I know it was really a fortune.

    This woman stayed back till 7:00am this time around. She was still not sure and decided to give the key to the pastor.

    Not too long, the pastor arrived and she narrated the whole event to him. He was bewildered at such sacrifice she had paid.

    He gave the car key back to her and said "This is the reward of true service".

    The woman who was a widow and lived from hand to mouth, sold off the car and used the money to start a business.That was how her story changed for good. (Well, i don't know if she continued sweeping).

      Moral Lesson

    • This woman might have realized that serving as a Sunday school teacher, usher or even as a chorister is not her strength and she gave the very best to God with what she could do-sweeping. This is not an excuse for not developing yourself but the focus here is actually diligence.
    • God resists the proud and gives grace to the humble.
    • Never seek men praises but in humility, seek God's approval. Man seeking equals eye service but God seeking equals heart service.
    • Remember, no matter what you do, If you think no one is watching, God is watching from above. He looks beyond the surface but seeks the intent of the heart and rewards on that basis.

    *Dusts Blog* Hello friends!

    It's been quite long since I came here. It's over Four(4) Months. My absence is "deliberately-not deliberate" (I will explain). 

    Earlier this year, I decided to slow down on blogging and focus more on academics because blogging takes much of my time.
    I take education as top priority. I believe anything that demands much of my time and my money (parents money), should be done well.

    You will still agree with me that what is worth doing is worth doing well. I can't spend Four years in college and not have anything to show for.

    Glory to God, I am gradually approaching my aim(Top secret). This is why I have been off the blog for a while plus some other unforeseen circumstances.

    I really miss you guys. After series of calls,critique and encouragement, I finally decided to come back (after fighting writers block for weeks). 
    lessons, blogging, recess

    During this short blogging recess, I would say I "re-learnt" a few lessons. I said "re-learnt" because they were not new to me but circumstances made me reflect over them again.

    They are reinforced lessons. One of the theories of learning focuses on reinforcement. It could be negative or positive reinforcement. It has to do with consistently re-introducing a set stimulus until you master the response (in the long term memory). 

    Most times you forget what you read because there was no reinforcement. 

    Ok. Enough of the lecture.

    Lesson 1: If you always wait until you have enough time&resources to start up an idea, you will never get it.

    I don't know about you but it's good to start with what you have. If You can diligently kick start that project, idea, etc. It will grow to fetch you what you need. All you need to do is make adequate plans

    Perhaps if Mark Zuckerburg waited till he had a million dollars to start his company, the Facebook we know of today might not exist yet. 

    If you complain often that there is no time, you will never have the time. If you can't manage 24hrs=1day, you can't manage 48hrs=1day. 

    Those times we spend on "unnecessary" chats, sleep etc can be used for something more productive.
    Friends, it just for you to take that bold step. 

    I started blogging with Nokia C1. It was terrific. I would type 2,500 words blog post. I used UC browser. It renders blogger.com well. I would manually insert the HTML tags. It paid off in a long run.
    Start something Mon-amis! :)

    *Check one of my first posts on this blog. Over 9000 page views: Your thoughts, your beliefs, your reality.*

    Lesson 2: No matter what you do or who you are, you will always have haters.

    I don't have much to say on this. It's just the truth. A song writer said "If nobody talks about you, then you are nobody." 

    I actually listen to all criticisms but never accept all. The ones that are helpful, I pick and discard the rest.

    Lesson 3: You can always learn to multitask.

    With proper time management and a focused mind, you can be engaged in more than one activity.
    I thought I wouldn't be able to manage my blog, Studies and other extra curricular activities I'm engaged in.
    It turned out to be lies in my head.
    Though everyone might have a limit to which they can multitask. It all requires disciplining plus the right combination of activities.

    Lesson 4: Value Relationship.

    It's the greatest resource and asset. Those seemly small people around you are what you need to achieve whatever you want.

    All you need to do is discover the treasure in anyone that crosses your path and harness it to your advantage(not on the negative though).

    Lesson 5: Always update yourself.

    If you are not informed, you are deformed. The world is changing everyday and if don't update yourself, you will lose relevance. 

    Don't just sit there and be a local champion. Make things happen. 

    Most times, what makes one person stand out among peers is simply information.

    If you search, there are information around you that will make you a relevant person in your generation.

    Bonus lesson: Ask question and share your problems. It will do you a lot of good.

     Lets Talk
