My Thinking Corner – Set Your Pace


Sometimes, in the bid to aspire and to achieve, a lot of people over reach their purpose and passion.

This is most especially witnessed in today’s World where lives are lived on social media, in the eye of all and sundry and success is judged by the number of likes checked off in a box.

The litmus test should always be this question: ‘why am I doing XYZ?’ ‘searching the recesses of my heart and mind, would I find that am I truly contented with what I’m doing?’ ‘If not, why?’

The answers to your silent litmus should tell you all that you need to know because the truth is when you set off doing something without your own driving conviction and doing it because Mr. QED is doing so, chances are that it would simply become another White Elephant project.

Lady Cee shares 3 succinct tips for making successful life changes.

Be part of The Thinking Corner, share your positive, self-help tips and development thoughts.

  1. Thank you for the mention Jacqueline.
    So true what you say. We need to keep our eyes focused on the reason why we started whatever we are pursuing and run the race at our own pace. I’ve had to remind myself of that when I’ve been tempted to mourn over my blog stats. It’s so easy to compare ourselves unfavourably with others.
    Thanks for the reminder!

  2. Amen Sister!! We need to Run the Race that is set before us!! Not the one for somebody else!

    Hebrews 12:1-2 New King James Version (NKJV)

    The Race of Faith
    12 Therefore we also, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily ensnares us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, 2 looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.


I love it when you decorate my heart with your words..
