The Leader in You + Personal Development and Reflections

January 23, 2017

The leader in me is getting better with this thing called “Poetry”. Even though there’s more knowledge to be gained. If you love poetry or have tips on how to get better with it, kindly comment below or email me personally.

I felt I should share something I drafted out briefly after the conversation I had with one of the #seksanlovelies. I am ever grateful for the amount of support and love received through this platform even to the extent of seeking out my opinion on matters disturbing you. Thank God for growth you all.

Despite the imperfection in my write ups, I can’t help but feel content and joyful within me knowing it is of help and use to others (your comments, contributions, and suggestions are highly needed always).

The Leader in You

Over the period, she has been unconsciously building up so much pressure within herself that she ignored her body needed reassurance and appreciation as well.  Actually, she knew quite well of her capabilities towards attaining a lot of positive things which of course is great. But, if care is not taken, we tend to forget the steps and processes behind the whole accomplishments.

We didn’t become who we are now but rather it was a gradual learning step. Steps that eventually became worthwhile after going through failed attempts. And, if every time we feel like giving up, we actually do, how will success be achieved and accounted for ?.

Mentally forgiving oneself of the past might be the only way to avoid being pulled down by our own selves – Sekinat Sanni

Forgive yourself and Grow without fear

All in all, blaming ourselves for having moments where we feel uninspired wouldn’t solve anything. Because that phase gives us the “why” we should look at our surroundings and be content with the personal progress made. We need to love ourselves, sympathize with ourselves and most importantly forgive ourselves.

Burying oneself deeply into work which agreed eventually becomes successful shouldn’t be a hide-out instead of trying to find peace within our inner mind. Just because we inspire people doesn’t mean we feel inspired by our abilities within us. It’s a personal development that shouldn’t be ignored or reserved to one side.

Love is a powerful word that goes beyond having another person involved and mentally forgiving oneself of the past might be the only way to avoid being pulled down by our own selves. It goes thus;

Look around you

Feel the gravity of pride you instill in people’s mind

How influenced they have become from the dose of your voice

The inspiration and motivation they gain from your positive impacts

Relax your mind and look around you 

Cry if that is all it will take 

To believe that really;

This is happening 

You are a leader

Purely your hard work

The power is;

All in you 

By you 

And with you

The globe awaits its leader

Love, Sekinat Sanni.
