When I fell pregnant with my first born almost 18 years ago, I was called all manner of names and castigated for falling pregnant in my teens. Now I look back almost 18 years later, 4 children in total I am truly grateful to God for what he has enabled me to achieve .

5 things to try when you’ve lost your motivation 

17 Oct

1). Surround yourself with your pick up people. Call it whatever name you want, but get people around you who will always inspire you to pick yourself up when you feel down. 

2). Visualise your life through your minds eye, stop focusing on the here and now. 

3). Take a different look at your hobby, could it be more than a hobby?

4). Write down your 10 before 10. 10 things you can achieve before 10am each day. 

5). Program your mind for success. Have a book of memories and record your past achievements as a constant reminder.

I am the Founder and CEO of Music Relief, a youth based Organization working with teen parents and youth offenders. I also consult and mentor women who are ready to turn their hobbies to a business – https://m.soundcloud.com/inspireurbiz/how-to-turn-your-hobby-into-a-business-magdalene-adenaike

Determination Pays Off

9 Aug


This picture was taken in November 2011, at my graduation ceremony at the O2 arena from The University of East London upon completion of my 3 years degree program BA Hons Music Industry Management. 

1). 12 years after my last education program

2). 12 years after the birth of my first born (Master Music Relief himself)

3). 5 years after the divorce from my first husband 

4). 3 years after meeting and marrying my husband (Mr. Adenaike himself).

5). 2 years after I was told that I would need to extend the 3 years course to a 4 years course because I was due to have my 3rd child in the second semester of my first year of uni. 

6). 3 months pregnant with my 4th child (my baby, my ketchup) at the time the picture was taken. 

7). The year Music Relief began its formation process. 

No matter how long your desired goal maybe, never give up. If I had listened to my lecturers at the time I would have graduated in 2012. You are stronger than you know if only you will believe. Determination plus perseverance = laughter. 

It is always upwards and onwards.

The audacity to dream big

20 Jul

It’s been almost a week since we started enjoying this undisturbed back to back glorious sunshine here in the UK. Yes, it has been very sticky with very hot and uncomfortable nights but I wouldn’t change it for the world. 

I have heard many people complain about the weather, even one of my sons asked me if this heat wave was some kind of a punishment from God. (Lol) 

Why do we complain when we ask for something? Words have power, what you say intentionally or unintentionally will manifest in your life. 

What are you praying and working towards? Are things going the way you desire? Are your dreams bigger than you? The audacity to dream big can only be determined by the words you say. Your circumstances may not match what you are saying, but the fact that you still say it any way takes courage that should never be undermined.  

The story of rags to riches resonates tenacious characteristics of the audacity of the individual who dares to dream big and never allows any bumps on the road to success to stop him/her. 

The resolve to have a mind set that never quits must be applauded, because that individual can only see his/her end goal and does not flinch at the prospect of the journey ahead. 

What are you waiting for, do you have the audacity to dream big?

Your Foundation Matters

6 Jul

 

Most of us love cake, but no matter how decorated that cake is on the outside. If that cake is not fully baked on the inside the beauty of that cake is only found on the outward appearance. Time is needed to get that cake fully baked, so it is for our lives and businesses.

Make the shift from failure to success

29 Jun

business-idea-1240830

Are you successful? Do you think of success? What is success and what does it it mean to you?

I will be dissecting what success really means and how we can make that shift.

What is Success –‘The accomplishment of an aim or purpose’.

Success to you may look totally different to mine and vise versa. I decide to run a marathon and win or lose I am determined to complete it because without that completion my efforts is futile. Success is an individual’s pursuit for their own goal. 

What makes a person a failure? Is it when he/she does not make the highest grade or finishes the race on record time and is not the 1st to end? The dictionary definition of  failure is ‘The neglect or omission of expected or required action’. 

What are your plans? Are you on track? On a scale of 1 – 5 with 1 being right on track and 5 being completely off track. Where would you place yourself? Are you beating up yourself for not ‘getting there yet’? Wherever there is. Remember success means the accomplishment of an aim or purpose, whilst failure is the neglect or omission of expected or required action. I would also include that failure is only failure when you remain in that place of self loathing because the deadline you may have set for yourself to achieve something has lapsed.

The shift from failure to success is a mind game, and can only occur when the individual has decided that he/she is ready to take the next step and willing to go the long haul in order to achieve whatever they have set their mind to achieve. When the individual chooses to use their past experiences as the starting point for a greater tomorrow, he/she needs to take time out from the ratrace to reflect on their life’s journey so far. They have to be willing to unlock the doors to the unpleasant and painful experiences they may have faced previously. That person should be willing to be truthful to themselves and develop some form of a thick skin, because in life there are many challenges and obstacles that come along the way.

What you say to yourself is very important especially in the midst of your down times. Don’t be persuaded to name yourself along with your current situation. I read about a young man recently who told his friends and family members that he would one day propose to the woman he would marry in front of the Eiffel Tower in Paris. This was while he was still in his own country, no money and no girlfriend. He said many laughed at him and told him to keep dreaming, but he was not discouraged by what was said to him. He continued saying it despite his present situation at the time. I’m sure you know what I’m going to say now, well yes he did finally get to Paris and yes he did actually propose to his girlfriend in front of Eiffel Tower. The fact that his words created his world is very powerful, he decided to make the shift from failure to success disregarding the reality of his previous situation.

Bear with me a moment while I take everyone to church. ‘There is life and death in the tongue’. I don’t know the man, but what really made me make reference to him was the fact that he spoke his own reality to physical manifestation even when everything and everyone around him mocked and opposed him. Your mind is a battlefield, battling between the present reality and the reality you want for yourself. Don’t be discouraged, keep the faith. Remember the definitions of success and failure, don’t compare yourself to others and beat yourself down if things do not seem to be progressing the way it is for others.
