5 Things One Can Do after Failure

Failure is not as bad as it often looks. In failure there can be new found energy and methods of doing things.

1. Get the Lessons

Why did I fail? What did I do that I could have done differently or not done at all?

2. Be Deciduous

Shed off any excess weight, baggage, attitude or anything else that may hinder you from moving on. Somethings were ok for a season but may not be ok moving forward.

3. Rebrand

Rebuild yourself. Change your ways but not necessarily your ideology. Augment and consolidate your strengths. Learn from others who are ahead of you.

4. Be Gracious

Many people use failure to justify their irrational attitudes or actions. Failure provides a wonderful opportunity to find oneself. Not everyone wanted you to fail. Others still want you to succeed.

5. Trust God

There is God in failure and there is God in success. Trust God, believe God and look to God.


Your failures may be incomprehensible. But trusting God is the sure way to recalibrate. Build again but differently. Start afresh but with new found hope. Everyone falls at a certain time. But no one deserves to stay down.

How to Frustrate the Devil Back!

Yesterday I perused through my written goals penned down over the past six to ten years. It was clear to me what I desire to do and how I am going to do it. The greatest catalyst to change is determining the 'when' of your plans.

Today I come to inspire someone that your 'when' is around the corner.


JUST get pregnant. Women understand one thing very well. "As long as I conceive my 'when' will come." Be pregnant with vision, purpose and mission. Be pregnant artificially or naturally. Stay away from 'pills' or morning afters that kill your vision. Have you ever slept motivated about your dreams and woke up frustrated about the same dreams? No more. This one you will carry full term dear until we see that baby.


Get a GYNAECOLOGISTS. Obstetrics and Gynecology (OB/GYN, OBG, O&G or Obs & Gynae) is essential. You won't deliver this baby just by doing things as usual and as normal. Your normal has changed. Your levels have changed too. You need guidance and counselling. You need motivate and inspiration. You need a new regiment and diet. This dream of yours needs books to read, workshops to attend and matters to change. Ordinary people do ordinary things. Extraordinary people do wonders.


Make money. Your vision requires money. Your vision is like a Mercedes Benz. Nice to drive but experience dictates that you can't have cheap spare parts for such a car. Have you noticed that broke don't do you well? Your mood is terrible when broke. You are frustrated when broke. Stop complaining about how expensive things are. Start challenging yourself to find new ways to earn and to save more  money.


John 10:10 says "The thief comes to steal, kill and to destroy. I have come that you may have life and have it abundantly."

You are blessed to receive abundant life today. Frustrate those who attempt to frustrate you by succeeding at the very things they expect you to fail at.

That vision in you is God given. Now get up and receive your provision. Work your behind till this thing happens. Truth is you will never be happy until you realise your vision.
