Stop Waiting For A Special Sign and Just Get Shit Done

This post has been seen 6124 times.

7 years ago, I was dillydallying about being a speaker, waiting for God to give me a special sign like a burning book that was not consumed by the flames or a star in the east pointing me to the direction of a special mentor.

I waited and waited but I could not see any sign.

Until my brother said, “stop waiting! Just call yourself a speaker, get yourself a website, take a picture and act like a speaker!”

And that was it … he said “shit” somewhere I think … but his words were what brought me on a dope journey as a speaker/engineer/writer/trainer/everything. There was no key sign or sudden revelation. Just my brother telling me over the phone to start getting shit done.

So if you are reading this … stop reading it and go get shit done!

  2. I was with Esther “Bliss” Raphael, Solomon, and Walter Samuel at Net Cafe Jos. Walter Samuel said something,

    “MIRACLES are CREATED”, he went further to say “People create their experiences”.

    In other words, Ofili is telling me, “Go and create your miracle” or “Go and create your own experience”.
