One sunny afternoon, a man went out to water his garden. He pulled out and plugged one end of his hose to the water source and the other end, he dragged across to water the plants in the garden. Surprisingly, the big enough hose was only able to dispense a small ration of water to the dry-looking plants.
Unbeknown to this man, he had stepped on the hose, shutting off the water supply to a trickle. Even though, he had a big hose that’s capable of a liberal flow. He was only able of getting mere dribble of water. At the source, water was in abundance ready to gush out and meet his need to water the garden but only one thing was at fault, the man himself. He was pinching his supply limiting it to a miserable drizzle. In short, he was standing on the way of achieving his goal and didn’t know it.
Sometimes, we may stand in the way of our own progress without knowing by the sort of things we do. Shunting our own potentials, short-circuiting our flow, inhibiting our own progress and undermining our own success.

Today, my question to you is this: In what ways are you short-changing yourself – in business, career, family, relationships, finances, et cetera? May be in the way you;
T H I N K? Yes, your mindset.
Our minds play a huge role in whether we succeed or fail in our endeavours. And this is down to the fact that as a man or woman thinks, so is he or she. Always, let your mind think possibility, that way, you’re bound to excel. Or perhaps, for you, it’s in the way you
T A L K? That is, your words.
In this life, the words we speak are so powerful that they carry with them the ability to produce what we utter. They are vehicles to take us to where our minds go. They are potent enough to determine how far we’ll go. So, let your mouth daily profess the outcome you want to see in your life. Don’t go about talking like a defeated person even if it appears you’ve suffered defeats. Talk greatness! Lastly, the way you
A C T. I mean your actions.
To a very large extent, success is a function of what we do or don’t do. This implies that your action or inaction could be a hindrance to your success. Our actions ought to be consistent and aligned to what our minds believe. When you believe you can make it? Then, it behooves you to act like you really can make it. Act in faith, in boldness with courage; and not in fear.
If you have a dream to achieve something, don’t just sit there and expect the dream to fall on your laps. Act! Do something. Make a move. That’s how you get results!
