Life’s full of ups and downs; pits and peaks; hills and valleys.
Everyday life presents you with a different set of circumstances.
Some good others bad – at least as we view them.

It is a New Year.
Everybody out there is busy wishing. Wishing that 2016 goes successfully, that they get this and that and other cool stuff. Wishing is very good it indicates hope and life.
But, I want you to see 2016 in another way. In a whole New Perspective.
I want you to view the year 2016 as a new book containing 366 pages. You decide what you write on each of those pages. To make 2016 a successful year you need to see each moment as an opportunity. Begin to see the goldmine in every second. Kayode Ajomole of Decounsellor would say “you need to wear an opportunity lens”. The way you look at everyday circumstances determines the way you think about them, the way you act towards them and thus your attitude.
Additionally, you should tag the year – it’s cool. For instance I call 2016
“My year of Multiple Distinctions, Divine Breakthroughs and Continued Excellence.”
So go and have a Happy New Year.
Yes, we all want to unleash the genius in us. Continue reading
