In 2013 after completing my undergraduate studies the year before, I decided to get married atleast to be a responsible man. I was living in a single room at Githurai 45 paying a monthly rent of Ksh 2300. I didn’t have a bed and was using the thin high school mattress on the floor, atleast I had the small gas cylinder, 100litres tank, one bucket, mtungi and those double deck tables sold at Githurai. That amount tells you the kind of a house it was. In the process of looking for a lady to marry, I decided to operate by faith so I took a loan of Ksh 28,000, rented a slightly bigger house, bought a second hand bed, TV, few utensils and a seat. I then brought 2 bed pillows. Why 2? It was applying faith. I told God that one was for my wife though by then I was single, not dating. After taking that step, 3 months later I met my wife and the rest is history. I applied faith and changed my environment to accommodate the blessing I was trusting God for.
A shark in a fish tank will grow 8 inches, but in the Ocean it will grow 8 feet or more. The shark will never out grow it’s environment, and the same is true about you….change your environment and watch your growth. This is not necessarily natural environment but mindset and level of expectations. Apply DIPTHA in your life:-
1. Desire – have a deep desire to achieve what you want. The bible says God fulfills our heart desires.
2. Imagine – Imagine yourself having what you want and start thanking God for it.
3. Perceive – The perception of ourselves determines the reception. See yourself in that situation or with that thing and live like you have it.
4. Thirst – Be so thirsty of it.
5. Hunger – Have a crazy hunger to achieve. Hunger for success. A serious craving and appetite.
6. Aspire and Act – Go for it.
May God give us wisdom to always make the correct and timely decision.
John16:24 Untill now you have not asked for anything in my name. Ask and you will receive, and your joy will be complete.
Ephesians 3:20 Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above and beyond what we ASK for or IMAGINE…
Daniel11:32… The people who know their God shall be strong, and do exploits.
Your limitations are not God’s limitation.
You need Fortitude, Tenacity, and Guts.
Suffer now and live the rest of your life as a champion.
Fortitude to stand no matter what, Tenacity to stick with it and Guts to deal with whatever is in front of you.
Dreams are for those with the courage to pursue them.
Good things might come to those who wait but greater things do come to those who pursue them with tenacity.
Life hands you circumstances, you determine your destiny with your tenacity of personal dreams or goals to take you on your journey so get your pursuing wings on and fly.
To make our way, we must have firm resolve, persistence, tenacity. We must gear ourselves to work hard all the way. We can never let up.
The mind is the limit. As long as the mind can envision the fact that you can do something, you can do it, as long as you really believe 100 percent. Set your mindset right!
We must go for what we need to get what we want. Don’t be a coward. Take risk! FAITH IT UP!
Be UNSTOPPABLE! Let your tenacity and drive to succeed be greater than failure.
Ask, Seek, Knock, Imagine (Faith).
Where there is a desire there’s provision.
Have a BULLDOG TENACITY. Go for what you want, Faith it untill you get it.
