Get lost in the passion!
That’s what a friend told me to do this year. I’ll consider this post my first official post in the year of our Lord, 2017.
I’ve been on holidays since 22nd of December, 2016, pondering over my life, reminiscing on the journey of over ten years since I intentionally decided to take thought leadership serious, and musing over how to make 2017 a worthwhile experience for you.
This is a post of gratitude. It’s not so much about what to do and what not to do. I’m writing this to sincerely thank you for being here since June 13th, 2015, when I wrote my first blog post.
I woke this morning to check my Facebook timeline. I saw that my Facebook post on the 3rd of this month had gotten 610 shares. It was a post about my upcoming ebook on how to grow your platform.
I’ve had this operational strategy in my business to thank whoever shares my work on his or her timeline on Facebook. I consider it a thing of joy that someone finds my work worthy of being shared. It makes my heart dance for joy. I don’t consider it a right, but a privilege that my work is shared to many more eyeballs.
Prior to sharing about my new ebook that will be given away for free on the 27th of this month, I think that the maximum number of shares I’ve seen on a post of mine is about 80 shares.
To have 610 shares of the post I made about GROW YOUR PLATFORM overwhelmed me. I shed tears of joy and appreciation. I was humbled by the outpouring.
I set to work to thank all those who shared. It was a huge task, but I was typing on each person’s wall personally. Twice, Facebook temporarily suspended me for posting so fast. They felt I was spamming. I will try to show my appreciation to all of them in batches, no matter how long it will take me.
This post is also to show my appreciation to you for reading my works and also sharing them. My heart is glad. You gave me the moon as a gift by sharing. I love you, dearly.
Sometimes I feel that I should have stepped onto this path early enough. However, I’m happy I’m on it. This is what I do and I’m happy doing it.
I’m always in awe when I remember why I set off on this journey. It’s worth asking what really compels us to do what we do. For many, it’s a battle to locate it, but when you do, you spend your waking hours living graciously in the moment and attending to how to be the best for humanity, a master chef intent on cooking the best of meals for humanity to relish.
Since I commenced, I’ve learnt my lessons. You can learn from them, too.
It’s 2017. If you tried and failed in 2016, you can try again. Keep trying. If it’s any consolation to you, I dared, I goofed, I failed and won.
There’s no magic formula to get the successes you desire. You keep trying. Try. Try and keep trying.
Cheers to your success in 2017!
This year I want you to achieve greater results. I'll love you to join the family to become intimate with me so that I can share my deep thoughts with you that can help you become the phenomenal person you desire to be. Join the family here and let's kick off the journey!
