‘Submission is the life-wire of any meaningful change program.’

Hello great people. I am highly inspired to be with you today. In fact, I’m consumed by the zeal to cause a revolution in the school system. I know that by the grace of God, it shall be done.

Today I will like to share with you the 5th principle in our journey of self-discovery. I will like to share with you today the need for you to submit to the healing requirement.

Please note that subcription is different from submission. In my last piece on this topic, I discussed extensively what it means to subscribe. To submit to the healing requirements is to make use of the available prescriptions with a view to seeing tangible changes in one’s life.

Submission is the discipline to follow through the healing requirements. It is a commitment to make necessary sacrifices to change. Its the cultivation of the inner strength in the defence of one’s personal change program. It means you must set achievable goals for personal change.

Submission is the life-wire of any meaningful change program. It means you have not respect for your feeling, which is the voice of your body or the voice of your convinience. It means you have no respect for your reasoning, which is the voice of your soul or the voice of your intellecual preferences or personal logic. It finally means the only thing you have respect for is the truth premised on universal principles. Submission is a gift you give to yourself to enjoy the best of yourself. Think about it.

I am out of this page today. I hope that you learnt one or two things today. My better hope is that you are INSPIRED to decode your identity.

See you tomorrow.

Have an INSPIRED Day.

15 Years Like Yesterday

Hello fellow FIREWorkers: I am sure you had a great and INSPIRED weekend. Mine was very INSPIRING. I was with a group of young people yesterday sharing my story…It was awesomely refreshing and INSPIRING.

Let me apologise that I did not come to this page yesterday…I had to make a trip after my engagement with these bright gems and it was quite hectic. I’m yet to recover from the fatigue of the trip.

I should be sharing with you the next topic on our long discussion, Decoding Your Identity but I deem it fit to share with you my story, having been my anniversary of change. I began to decode my identity 15 years ago. Let me share with you a message I shared with a couple of friends yesterday…Please be INSPIRED:

15 years ago by His grace, who mercifully separated me from my mother’s womb, I said, ‘I do’ to the Lord JESUS as His bride.

By the tenets of covenant of that union, sealed in my room on that Sunday morning in Okokomaiko, Lagos, I was translated from the Kingdom of darkness to the Kingdom of His dear Son;

I had my citizenship changed;
And was appointed an ambassador of our Kingdom, representing the interests of our HOME COUNTRY in the earthly duty post.

The mandate was clear:
To seek CHANGE through Knowledge;
To practice CHANGE through desire, discipline&skill;
To disseminate CHANGE through my lifestyle.

15 years gone by, I can boast of the faithfulness of the HOME COUNTRY in doing their own part of the deal, even in moments I was unfaithful.
To these ambassadorial mandates I remain committed by His GRACE…Who SAVES and also KEEPS.
Have an INSPIRED day

When is a System Incomplete?

It is the weekend and as my custom is, I do not want to hit us with heavy dose of  FIREWorks as we do during the week. Here is our Daily FIREWorks for today: a word of wisdom I came in contact with many years ago and it has become very instructive and helpful in my crusade for the best interest of the child.  Please enjoy V.R Teneja:

So long as there is one child who has failed to obtain the precise educational treatment his individuality requires; so long as a single child goes hungry, has nowhere to play, fails to receive medical attention he needs; so long as the nation fails to train and provide scope for every atom of outstanding ability it can find; so long as there are administrators or teachers who feel no sense of mission, who cannot administer or who cannot teach, the system will remain incomplete.” V.R Teneja

Have an INSPIRED Weekend.

Let Us Spare Men of the Nigerian Police

Let us spare the men of the Nigerian Police…They are charged with securing the lives and property of Nigerians? Please note that the security of lives and property of the people is one of the cardinal and primary responsibilities of the State.

But the age-long principle is, you can’t give what you don’t have. The question how does a police, which is not socially secured and equipped secure the lives and property of the people?

It is therefore not enough to declare check points illegal…If the new acting IG is committed to a new Nigerian Police, he should boldly make as his primary area of concern the WELFARE of the police and thereafter a mass reorientation of his men, then a new measure of discipline.

Have an INSPIRED Weekend.

‘Seperating a person from his deeds is a goldly command. That is why God hates sin but loves the sinner. It simply means that sinner and his deeds only have the opportuinty to be tagged as one when the opportunity for change ceases to exist. That is when the sinner dies.  Addressing persons breeds prejudice while adressing issues brings solutions.’

I woke up this morning with a concern. It is a genuine concern. It has been an issue in my heart in the last few months. It is the propensity of man to criticise or judge another. The idea that when I mess up, I understand myself because I’m human but when others mess up, they must criticised out of existence is to say the least unacceptable. I see men and women, who keep pointing accusing fingers to others as if they have no sin.

I have no right and capacity to criticise people. The standard is, he that has no sin let him cast the first stone of condemnation. Does that mean I will condone and encourage evil? God forbid. All I will do is to address issues and not persons.

Seperating a person from his deeds is a goldly command. That is why God hates sin but loves the sinner. It simply means that sinner and his deeds only have the opportuinty to be tagged as one when the opportunity for change ceases to exist. That is when the sinner dies.  Addressing persons breeds prejudice while adressing issues brings solutions.

Yes, that was just an appertizer. My concern today is to continue our journey of self-discovery. We are at a very interesting busstop today.

I have shared with you in the course of the week that there are six cardinal principles to operating our passwords to decoding our identity. We may refer to them as our password manual.

We have shared three of them. The first, accept and love yourself as you are. The second, identify positive and negative childhood experiences. The third, identify the requirements for healing.

The fourth, which is our focus today is to  subcribe to the healing process. What does this mean. It simply means that after you have identified the requirements for healing we must go ahead and acquire it. Whatever we find as a requirement for our healing we must make conscious efforts to create time and budget for it.

For example if you find that one of the negative impacts of your upbringing is that you suffer from accute low self-esteem and you find that the requirement for healing is to go for counselling, read some books and make delibrate efforts to fight against your esteem issues. Subcription means, you are not just going to stay at home and keep wishing. It means you are going to get on your feet and begin to seek the channels of your healing. That is what I mean by subscibing. It is the vigorous but informed pursuit of the requirements for healing.

I am sure we understand our discussion today. I look forward to being with you tomorrow. Thank you for joining me today. Have an INSPIRED Day.

Decode Your Identity (9)

Opening Charge:

‘The causes of destruction in most cases ranges from wrong diagnosis, wrong prescription to  lack of discipline on the side of the patient to follow the prescription through. As it is in the medical field so it is in life.’

It is a beautiful day. I am not only inspired but excited to be with you today. It is my joy to see you become inspired and excited too in the discharge of your sacred responsibilities to the children, who are very dear to our hearts.

Today, I want to take us to the third busstop on our journey to discovery. It is to identify the requirements for healing. You will recall that yesterday I shared that you must identity positive and negative impact of your upbringing and decide to lead yourself out of the negative impact.

I think for us to do the foregoing exercise effectively we must be interested in the requirements for healings. For every diagnosis, there must be a bespoke recommendation of treatment. It is not enough to get the diagnosis right, it is critical to get the treatment right. It is also important to have the discipline to go through the prescribed treatment. The causes of destruction in most cases ranges from wrong diagnosis, wrong prescription to  lack of discipline on the side of the patient to follow the prescription through. As it is in the medical field so it is in life.

So what do you need to do for you to be in a position where you can identify the requirements for healing. The first thing is to  desire healing.  It is called the  motivation for healing. The second is the quest for knowledge. It is called what to do. The third is seeking skill. It is called how to do what you know you should do.

The task above is not easy but it is possible for a heart that isa determined to make outstanding impact in the lives of everyone we come across including the children we teach.

This is where I will rest my case today. See you tomorrow. Have an INSPIRED day.

How to Handle a Bully (1)

 

Hello young people. Please join me here weekly as I share with you nuggets that will help you in life.  I think you have enough time to rest and refresh for school work. It is said that, ‘all work and no play makes Jack a dull boy.’

Today, I want to discuss with you a very important topic: How to handle a bully. I mean how to protect yourself from a bully at home and at school. Let me start by asking, who is a bully? Does anyone have the answer? The Dictionary defines a bully as ‘an aggressive person, who intimidates or mistreats weaker people.’

Intimidation can be by beating, teasing, cursing. When you are bullied you become intimidated. A lot of times you are teased with your physical features like your nose, mouth, leg, ears and the rest. The other day I went to a leading secondary school in Lagos. I saw a female pupil crying in a corner.  I moved close to her and asked her why she was crying. She said her class mates said she had k-legs.  In some cases you are teased by your name, where you live, the status of your parents and the rest of it.  A boy whose name was Judah was nicked named Judas by his classmates. He had to change his name to Samson.

If you understand what you just read, and depending on your age, you have either been a bully or you have been bullied before. If you have been a bully, I want to advise you to please stop being one. It is not good at all. One day you too will be bullied.

This discussion is likely to be a long one. Next I will share with you how to stop being a bully and if we still have space, I will discuss with you to protect from being bullied. Have a great week.
