Monday 22 February goes down in the annals of Success Inspirer as the day this blog started its first success course as announced. Thank you for joining us.
We are starting our Success course titled Live Your Dream Life Course. This course is meant to get you going after what you want in life; and never to stop until you have achieved it.
I like you to take note of these words by Ralph Waldo Emerson:
“Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.” (Ralph Waldo Emerson)
Ponder on them
I have a dream for you. I want you to leave a trail in this world. I will encourage you as much as I can so that you do that. I will inspire you. I will motivate you. I will help you bring out the best in you.
I have one piece of advice for you: do not minimize the power of inspiration, motivation, encouragement and help no matter who it’s coming from. Your help may come from where you least expected. God works in wonderful ways. You never know who He will use to give you what you want. Keep all channels of opportunity open, even the most unlikely ones.
Instructions for the course
The instructions for this course are very important. Follow them scrupulously. That is what will give you the results you seek. All the instructions are simple. You should not have any difficulty following them. Taking them lightly will not do you any good. It will be better not to start the course at all than to start it and not follow the instructions; for, it would be a waste of your precious time. Never forget that time is money. Time is the most precious gift you have.
To make things easy and interesting, we’ll be giving you just enough at a time. Long lessons are boring and the learner losses attention. When attention goes, precious time is wasted; effort is wasted; results are negative. Make the most of your time by paying attention to what you read.
Each lesson is meant for one week. Read and re-read. Repetition enhances understanding and assimilation. Take note that it is a study course. It is not just reading a post on a blog. If you read daily for one week, paying attention to what you read, it will be hard to be the same person at the end of the week. Read and master the content of each lesson in a way that you can teach another person.
Make sure you understand what each lesson contains. Make sure you take home something from every lesson. What are you taking home today? Get an exercise book or open a file for your take-homes. You will be surprised at how much knowledge you will accumulate.
Share what you learn
Sharing what you’ve learned prints it stronger in your own mind. If you keep it selfishly to yourself, it will soon dry up. After each lesson, share what you have learned as a comment. It must not be long. It can be long; it can be short. You make the choice. You may blog on the lesson you’ve learned. Something in it may inspire you to write a post. Please, do; and inform us about it so that we and others may look for it and read.
On this site, there is a chat forum titled “How was your day today?” You will easily find it. Use it to share what you have learned, ask questions, make remarks, thank, compliment etc. Fellow course participants will be happy to meet you there. Feel free.
This is what we have for this first week. This course is meant to take you from where you are to where you wish to be. Let not the simplicity of things here deceive you. This is a powerful course. Devote time to it. Be wise! There is no use rushing from blog to blog hitting like just to have them return the gesture when it does not take you far. I want you to take time and concentrate on a course that will take you rung after rung up the ladder of greatness.
If you can learn something new and useful even if you read just one post a day, and have no like on your blog, it will be better than rushing after likes and by the end of the day, you are exhausted and no better than when you started.
It is important to know your priority. Nothing can be more important for your success than to grow in the knowledge that will take you to where you want to go. That is what you should go for. That is what is given you here.
You have below daily assignments. For this week, they are mostly thoughts which we consider wise and important for success. Take them day by day as indicated, ponder on them, see how true or not each one is, and decide how you want to use it to take you to success. Share on it. Let us know what you think or have decided.
Everyday, you shall be prompted on the assignment of the day. You can then blog on it or do with it as it pleases you. The idea is to spend enough time thinking about it and making sure that you get a lesson from it for success.
- Monday: “Knowledge is power” (Francis Bacon).
- Tuesday: “You can achieve anything you desire with all your heart and work with all your might to achieve.” (Ngobesing Suh Romanus)
- Wednesday: “You can if you think you can” John Reeves.
- Thursday: “Only a life lived for others is a life worth living.” Albert Einstein.
- Friday: Success is not easy to come by. It does come, however, to those who work and keep on working till they succeed.” (Ngobesing Suh Romanus)
- Saturday: Use this day to look at all that you did this week on this course. Do some evaluation. Did you get anything new, even if it was small? Were your expectations met? Do you look forward to week 2? Let us know what you think. That will help us get things better for you.
Thank you for being part of this first week of our course. Good luck. See you on Monday.
