No doubt 2016 has been a unique year and we must learn to always count our blessings and show forth gratitude to our Maker.

If you’ve had a free supply of oxygen all through this year, then you have a reason to express gratitude for the gift of life, regardless of what expectations came through and what did not.

For me, I’m grateful for Life more abundantly and for a wonderful family, I’m grateful for wisdom, grace, provision and protection, for opportunities in 2016, for the privilege to have great friends, mentors and protégés, for the ability to learn and increase my capacity, for good health and sound mind, for everything I achieved and the ones am yet to achieve and I’m also grateful for 2017- A beautiful year full of blessings on every side.

Join me to show gratitude, by commenting in the box below about what things you are indeed grateful for in 2016 as we get set to step into the new year.




kaitlyn-rodriguez-2So as I sat down outside the tent, waiting for our event to commence, my attention was drawn to the children’s game arena of this event center and behold there was this lovely dad, teaching his little son how to aim the ball properly and how to throw it into the net.

For the next 20 minutes, I fixed my gaze on them as I watched in amazement how the father took his time to teach his son and the son on the other hand took time to learn and understand what his father showed him about basketball.

A few minutes later, I could see that the little boy began to master the game of aiming, throwing and scoring his goals and this made me draw closer to them as I kept watching and I realized that the boy could easily master the art of scoring his goals because his father coached him on how to achieve it.

It seemed impossible at first, but with understanding, consistency and courage he mastered the game and his father watched him aim, throw and score many goals. I quickly said to myself:

  • All things are possible
  • Everyone can be coached to master their game and score their goals
  • With understanding, courage and consistency, everyone can be an achiever

As we wind up this year and step into the New Year, you must bear in mind that there are no accomplishments without setting goals, making plans and crafting strategies. What are your desires for the New Year? What things do you want to accomplish? What area of your life do you need to improve upon?

With goals, plans and strategies you can easily create a feasible road map for all your accomplishment and with the help of a coach, you can master how to score all your goals and achieve all you desire and make the New Year your best year ever.

How to make 2017 Your BEST YEAR


Planning and preparation has a lot to do with the results we produce. So if you want to achieve something, set goals, if you desire great results, plan and prepare for it, if you don’t desire anything, just do nothing.

2016 has been a great year full of great lessons and results and like John Maxwell says, “Sometimes we win and sometimes we learn”, but truth is that your ability to win depends on how much you’ve learnt to win.

To take advantage of 2017, I present to you 20 simple but powerful steps guaranteed to make 2017 your best year.

  1. HAVE FAITH IN GOD: This is one sure way to win in life. Faith in God can move mountains and provoke the miraculous. You must trust God for the best in 2017, increase your spiritual capacity, live and walk by faith.

  10. YOU MUST BE DISCIPLINED: In 2017 you must know what’s expedient and stick to the core, be disciplined to stay focused on your vision and speak positively, value time and optimize it and crush the monster called procrastination.
  11. SAVE, SAVE, SAVE: You must not consume your entire harvest in 2017, you must learn to save and reserve your seed for more harvest. Re-invest your savings and multiply your investments.

Disciplined Steps

f2048d671d56947ca22705f04aa02ae5_discipline-750-368-cOne secret that has helped every person of great accomplishment gain mastery with consistency in character is discipline.

Discipline is simply self imposed standards, for the sake of a higher goal.

Self discipline sets winners apart from the rest and it is a culture of greatness.

Discipline makes you do what’s right and not just what you like.

A life without discipline is like a car without brakes, lacking control and limits, and headed for destruction.

Discipline is required from the beginning to the end of every race, if you desire to win.

Discipline understands purpose, says yes only to what’s expedient and sticks to the core.

And as we move towards achieving our goals, note that your relevance will be sustained by discipline.

You must build a regimen of things you must do every day that  will lead to the actualization of your goals and dreams and never quit until you achieve greatness.

If you must achieve whatever you desire, self discipline is inevitable!
