Run that Race!
Hello everyone, it’s been a while since my last blog post in January. A big thank you to all my readers out there who supported me during the African Australia Awards. I am humbled and honoured to be one of the three women who won the ‘National African Australian Women in Leadership Award for 2017.’ Above is the photo of me receiving the award.
I’ve also been busy finishing my two manuscripts, and I am hoping my first book will be out before Christmas 2018.
Now to our topic for today. I have a short motivating message for you all. I shared it to a group of leadership women where I was invited to speak earlier this week. So I thought I’ll just share a bit with you.
Run that race! I believe to run a marathon and be successful or win; one must have to plan and be well prepared ahead of the event. No one wins a race by sitting down doing nothing.
So this is my challenge to you today:
Don’t just live life every day, but plan it according to your purpose and what you want to achieve each day. Don’t just take a job because of the money it pays. I know most of us do that, and yes, I know we need the money. I need the money too. But go to work because it is part of your purpose and you love doing it. Otherwise, you get grumpy every Monday going into that office. When your job is part of your calling, you look forward to the start of the working week going in all pumped up and ready to take charge of the day.
So plan and take charge of your day, don’t let the day take charge of you.
Do not be afraid to take the challenge when it presents itself. Take it by the wheel and drive it to success. All you need to do is to rise in confidence and courage and walk into the path of greatness you’ve been dreaming about for so long.
Life is like the relay field. Everyone is set on their position waiting for that baton to be handed over to them. My question is, are you prepared to take it when it comes to you. Have you already identified the race you’re meant to run? If yes, then position yourself, take the baton in confidence and boldness, and run your race to the finish line.
Wherever you are, be it in your career, your purpose and anywhere life leads you, let your race be engraved in you, give it all you can. Give it your best shots in that race track. And know this, ‘You are a leader,’ so run and lead with a difference!
Are you running that RACE?
