My childhood and teenage years experience was a memorable one; reason being that I had a father who was domestic to a fault.
As a result of that, I hated doing house chores.
I disliked staying in the kitchen especially when either of my parents were making pap.
They could make it so well regardless of the quantity.
When my father discovered my trick of not wanting to stay in the kitchen, he devised a means.
Whenever we wanted to eat pap, he would call me to come make it.
My first and second try was a total mess.
I couldn’t even describe the size of the lumps; but, my father forgave me and did it himself.
After that, my third attempt was a disaster and my father flogged me mercilessly.
But, after beating me, I realized that he did that to make me buckle down to learn.
Today, I am an adult who can proudly make pap without botching it and I am grateful for that experience.
Yes, I say this again, with my shoulder pads high up!
I simply define PROCESS as a training ground that determines the quality of your success.
Reiterating, it is a determining factor to lasting success.
For the spotlight you seek, there’s a price tag attached to it called ‘process’.
Often times, we tend to skip the process and we want to automatically find ourselves at the TOP or wish the spotlight would run into us.
No, it does not work that way.

The influential and successful people you envy today has duly paid the price and they are still paying.
The more reason you cannot help but celebrate them and admire their works.
Undergoing trainings in whichever way, to become relevant is not a jolly ride.
Rethinking and reshaping your life and destiny, will cause you to stretch beyond normal.
The process is not to kill you but to make you better and stronger.
Testimony and celebration will be your lot too when you choose to willfully go through the process.
You are coming out unscathed!
You are coming out more refined!
You are coming out more knowledgeable!
You are coming out more victorious!
And most importantly you have a story to tell; to help those who are in a fix or at a crossroad.
What a blessing!
Again, I say unto he that has an ear, endure the process for in due season, enjoyment shall come!
I hope this message meets you well.
