Whenever I get lazy, procrastinate, or thought of watching the news instead of making the news, I remember this poem and it gives me another dose of determination. Here is my translation from the original Yoruba language, I hope it encourages you continue working hard on yourself:
While teaching a group of leaders on The Law of Solid Ground, I had a chair in front and asked for someone who is bold to come forward as I demonstrate this law. A bold gentleman responded and came up to the front. I asked him to close his eyes and sit on the chair without looking back. He closed his eyes but the next thing he did really caught my attention…
As a leader, it is possible that you are intrinsically focused on what you are leading and not be exposed to anything beyond what you are leading. Your faithfulness and commitment to your vision could be the point of your frustration. Are you so busy working in the house that you never see beyond the house you are in?
