It dey work AKA like a flood... Hmmmmmmm, I am sure you were waiting for part 2 of “too much information” lol. I said “to be continued...” I didn’t state when. Anyways I am sure you can remember one of those services where your pastor so fires you up. During the service, you can’t wait to go grab the nearest mad man to cast out deeeveeels out of him. Well, let me share you my experience. I was quite a young pastor and we had finished what was then our early healing services with Pastor Chris. Those were fore runners to our present healing school. Boy!! I was so inspired. I couldn’t wait to rush out and start laying hands on cases. Hmmmmm, I didn’t have to wait long. The case came to me😂🤣😅. Choi I cringe as I remember. So I got to the office and I was told of this dear sister who was currently challenged. Once in a long while, she would go off the hook and would have to be bundled to a mental hospital for a while. They would treat her and then she would be okay. I was told that the trouble had started again. Choi!! See my opportunity!!!! Ahhhhh hospital ke!!! Bring her to meeeeee!!! I almost shouted. Infact I couldn’t wait to get to my office to start displaying my faith. So I got to my office. The first sight I saw brought an involuntary “Jesssossssss”!!! Out of my mouth. The deacon taking the sister to the hospital was chasing her around the church premises with a two-by-four. You see, while taking her to the hospital, the lady had stuck her neck out of the window shouting “Kidnappers!! kidnappers!! They had to turn back to prevent being lynched. On getting back to the church, she had grabbed the deacons hand and almost chewed off one his fingers. He eventually had to get it stitched. This was the sight waiting for me. A Deacon with a bloodied finger chasing a sister who was screaming and shouting, around my church premises. Na wah!! Who sent me🤦🏽♂️? I almost found myself doing the sign of the cross as I moved forward. “You this demon, I cast you out in the name of Jesus”!! Out!!! I shouted. I was in charge and this devil had to go!! “I cast you out too”!!! Was the unexpected response in a deep voice “Who said that”? 😳😳 Startled I opened my eyes. I was expecting to see the lady passed out. Instead what I saw was a wawu!! Here was this normally gentle sister facing me eye ball to eye ball like “I am ready for you” she looked like she was about to pounce on me. Ahhhh!!! I adjusted myself. At that point, I knew that this was it!!! “Out you foul spirit!! Out!! Out!! In the mighty name of Jesus!! “went my thunderous voice. “You too out!! Out!! Out!! Went the reply. Shuoooooo, they didn’t teach me this in bible school oh!! In all the LMC I had done, all the books I had read, all the ones I had seen Pastor do.... this one was different. I started thinking, “why must my own always be different? Why this difficult case?” I started to thank God, this wasn’t church service. I was now sweating a bit in those areas only you know. Sweating under the armpit, under my chin. I was like “hmmmmm Tony, who sent you? You should have just allowed them take this sister to hospital. What is all this showing yourself sef? Na by force?” Yes it is by force!! I assured myself. Undeterred I adjusted myself to release some more commands. As I opened my mouth.... next thing I heard was “Out!! Out!!! Pastor Tony, I cast you out!!” “Pastor Tony Ikeokwu out!!” Shuoooo!! The demon was now taking over my casting out!! We can’t let that happen. Now I was confused and didn’t know what to do next. The sweat started dripping on a cool evening. “Lord, what do I do next?” Went the thoughts in my mind. Frankly, like a rookie bible class student I had run out of ideas. I was a bit deflated. “This isn’t how it is supposed to work” went my thoughts. I flashed through all Pastor Chris had taught us. All the practical lessons we had seen. I gave up and was going to call them to bind her and take her away. I knew fully well that if I did, that was likely the end of my demon casting career. As I turned, I heard His voice “son, you have the victory, Jesus Christ won this battle years ago. This is but a manifestation of lying vanities” Immediately, like a flood, I felt the anointing surge through me. Choi!! I actually felt that fire surge through me!!! It was like Clark Kent putting on his Superman toga, like Shazam after shouting the words Shazam!!, like Batman with his bat suit, like... ( Tony! Tony!! Tony!!! I am sure that they have gotten the whole gist right now. Stop being a drama king and continue with the narrative🙄🤦🏽♂️). My eyes blazing (yer you gorrit, those blazing eyes), I turned back to the sister. To cut a long story short, after I finished, I left the sister kneeling down with her hands raised up for 30mins. I mean how dare she/them/it. She was just too glad later when we got her a car to take her to the hospital. By herself, she walked into the car, sat down gently and obeyed. I followed her to the car rubbing my hands, glee in my eyes. I was like, “just start manifesting here, you would do angle 90 by force!!” Yer. We have the victory. We always win. Never be afraid. Just have the assurance of the word. When the enemy shall come in, like a flood, the Spirit of the Lord shall lift up a standard against him. Isaiah 59:19
Too much information (Part 1 of 2 parts) Some years back, I found myself during a certain period watching a lot of news. It was during the height of ISIS. The world was concerned, there was a lot of concern about terrorist activity. So much information flowed about terrorism, their activity, lifestyle, etc. . To cut a long story short, I was well informed. About that period, I found myself boarding a flight from Amsterdam to Paris. It was a small regional flight. As usual with me, I got into my window seat and positioned myself to sleep. “Yea I was going to have a great sleep” I said to myself. Half sleepy, I noticed this guy enter the plane. Suddenly all sleep disappeared. Choi!! The guy ticked all the boxes of a classic terrorist. Heavily bearded, black mark on forehead from frequent prayer, he had this “angry” look and was carrying the tasbih ( Muslim rosary ) wrapped around his hand. “Father God, no weapon!!!” Came involuntarily from my mouth. “How can they allow this man on this flight? Did they check him properly?” Were my thoughts. To make matters worse, he was wearing very dark and loose clothing. “Hmmm he could be carrying a suicide belt!” Now all my CNN knowledge was coming forth! Ahhhh I didn’t know the matter was just warming up. As he walked past my seat, I heaved a sigh of relief!! “At least he wouldn’t be my Neighbour!” I wish! Before I knew it, he had retraced his steps, and sat down besides me. Chaiiiiii!!!! I shouted in Iranian! Now I knew God was watching me in 4D!! Shey, Instead of me praying for souls, I was watching CNN!? Kontinu!! I seemed to hear angel Gabriel and Michael combine to mock me. I am not so sure but it seemed like that angel of Daniel that had to be rescued by another angel was sticking his tongue out at me. See, I had referred to him as baby angel for needing rescue. Anyways back to my “terrorist” neighbor. “God is it like this!!! Not this way” I said to myself. My mind started to run riot as I imagined a bomb going off besides me. I imagined a hole appearing on the plane fuselage and me being sucked out of the plane, shouting No!! No!!! No!!! (gosh, I must make a mental note to stop watching those Mission: impossible movies 🤦🏽♂️) I tried to say hi to the “uncle terrorist”. Maybe I could start a conversation that would lead him to christ. Even me self, I could barely hear the squeaky “hi” that came out of my mouth. The uncle ( best pronounced onculu) just glared at me like “hey keep your lane” 😠😤 “Oh Gawd, how did they let this man on this flight” 😱? I started looking around to change my seat, Choi!! The flight was full. No free seat. My fate was sealed!! The faces of the other passengers looked like they pitied me. It didn’t help that I was the only dark skinned person on the flight!!! “Did this guy choose me out? I hope no one is thinking we are together ?” ... to be continued 🤪🤓😎 *** 3 things, nay 4!! So I have been discussing the 3 things Pastor Chris said I needed to put in my life to be successful. Administration, discipline and consistency. While praying over them, I realized a 4th one. Accountability. “accountability is answerability, blameworthiness, liability, and the expectation of account-giving” For me, it means been held to certain established standards. The scriptures say that the word of a king has power. This is because once he has spoken, it is expected to not be retractable even when said in jest. Accountability is on several levels. The first and most important is personal accountability. Who you are when nobody is looking. You can give people believable excuses and get away with it, but you know the truth. Practice personal accountability. When you set a goal, be accountable to yourself to make it happen. If you are accountable to yourself, you would be accountable to your boss. Secondly, don’t engage in self deceit. Get someone that can tell you truths. Someone you can report to and practice stickability. ROR is in its 20th year. Not one month has it come late or not been available. Not one month have we had an article reprinted. That is 7,305 articles (yer I added the 5 leap years in between). That in itself is an inspiration. It is accountability in its highest form. Pastor Chris knows the world is counting on him and he delivers. What about you? This is the year of perfection!! Go for it. **** buzz word PTSD Post Traumatic Stress Disorder A disorder characterised by failure to recover after experiencing or witnessing a terrifying event. The condition may last months or years, with triggers that can bring back memories of the trauma accompanied by intense emotional and physical reactions. My childhood friend at 50+ can’t stand 7up. Uptill in her 20’s she will shudder and shake at the sight of a 7up bottle. She once unknowingly drank 7up in a cup and enjoyed it. Then started throwing up and almost passed out when she discovered it was 7up. I found out that day why. When she was a child, her dad held a 7up bottle and threatened to smash her head with it. An ordeal lasting almost an hour with her wailing and screaming. He was trying to get the poor child to learn something she was not ready for (African parents sha 🙄). What PTSD have you not allowed the word of God deal with? For some, you would need to add counseling. The drugs don’t work. Trust me. Having suffered from severe PTSD, I know that the only heal is the word, pastoral counseling and time. *** #12in3challenge Takeaway scripture from New Years message. Meditate on this scripture for the week. “Matthew 5:48 King James Version (KJV) Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect” So truly, is it true that “no man can be perfect?” I thought you said “If Jesus says yes, nobody can say no” why then is this so difficult to believe this.

Take charge Usually when I get into a plane, I sleep off. Before, it used to be the only place no one could reach you until the invention of Wi-Fi on planes 🙄. My thoughts usually are focused on Ps. 127:1. I mean God is watching, my angels are on full duty, why should I do watch night with them? Mtcheww!! I hiss in Japanese! Then there was this flight. We were coming from Kano into Lagos. The flight had already been delayed severally due to bad weather. As we entered the plane, it looked like the devil had started to play those ominous movie music. Those ones they play when something evil is about to happen. Na wah!! Anyways I settled into my window seat and in no time was asleep even before the plane took off. Next thing I knew, someone had gripped my hand like they had equal rights with me to it. I opened my eyes to see we were in a storm and the plane was being tossed to and fro. My neighbor was besides herself. I could see fear all over her. She wasn’t the only one. First, people were murmuring under their lips. As the flight grew worse, people threw off all pretense. “Allahu akbar,!! La ilaha illallah” went the chants “Ebenezer! Ebenezer! Ebenezer!! Hosanna”(best enjoyed in an Ibadan accent) “We cover this plane with the blood. The blood, the blood. All demonic forces we bind...” Went the initial chants. Then we had the “God, I don’t want to die!! I don’t want to die!!” I looked around calmly, wondering where the crew was. Hmmmm... there they were strapped into their seats, worried looks on their faces yet trying to be professional. Next thing before I knew it, some drama queen had jumped out of her seat and started rolling on the floor seemingly praying. “All my village people, you shall not win. I will live and not die. Mama Risikat, not today. Iya Olode, I bind you!! All coffin spirits, marine, air spirits... in Jesus name!! I was surprised when even the person that was shouting “Allahu Akbar” went amen!!! 😳🧐🙄 I looked at him in shock and he took his eyes away, looking like ehen?!! I seemed to be the only sane person at that moment. I told my neighbor to calm down and that we would be fine. I held her hands and said a loud prayer. I calmed the storm and took charge and declared peace. As I finished, I heard more amens than I could see. My other two neighbors and the people at the back had joined in. Almost immediately after I finished praying, the storm disappeared. Everywhere went calm. It was like there was nothing before. Praise God!!! Praise God!! was all we could hear even from our Muslim folks. Now I couldn’t sleep again. “Which church are you....” Mt 6:26-27 “can anyone of you by worrying add a single hour to your life?” (NIV) Relax, God’s got your back. The outcome is always favorable. *** Consistency How did the snail get into the ark? It got there by doing the right thing every day. Consistence is steadfastness. It is the ability to establish a routine and stick to it. Consistency is dependability and reliability. The Bible refers to it as faithfulness and we are told that God rewards faithfulness Mt. 25:21. It is better for your body to walk 15mins every day for 5 days than to do a 1hr walk every 2 weeks. Most people never prosper because they are always looking for a big break. This big opportunity to make it. “Nope, I can’t give $25, God has called me to do big things. I am waiting to give my $1m”. Good enough but it is now 25 years and you haven’t moved forward. People forget that the small opportunities make way for the big one. The $25 makes room to give the $1m. Same way, just start that thing that has been on your mind since. Start!!! Stop the analysis, paralysis!!!! Study Mt 25:21. The servant was promoted for consistency. His faithfulness in little things brought him promotion. Learn stickability. Finish one project well and take on another. Don’t start and then abandon the project. Don’t allow excuses get in your way. Life is a relay. Your input is needed to give someone else access( ROR, Jan. 21st 2020). Where you fail, someone has missed out. Interestingly, to be consistent, you need administration and discipline. Count for something, be consistent in your victories. *** buzz word Artificial intelligence:- the theory and development of computer systems able to perform tasks normally requiring human intelligence, such as visual perception, speech recognition, decision-making, and translation between languages. Bottom line, man has finally created a system that learns and thinks like a human. It is either our greatest opportunity or our greatest threat. #12in3challenge Yup, I have finished the power of your mind. Now I am going to read it again. It was like I hadn’t read it before. Take aways from the book “God had changed the man’s name to Abraham to reflect his new identity and align with the vision for his life, and as far as He was concerned, it was a foregone conclusion. God didn’t need to do anything more to make it happen. It was Abraham who needed to discover and align his mind with God’s idea and plan for his life” Power of your mind page 134 “the extent of your vision is the boundary of your blessing!” Pg 168 ***Playlist Rita Soul As we pray https://loveworldworship.com/main/track/157-as-we-pray *** quote of the week *** meme of the week *** hangout picture of the week *** wedding picture of the week *** bonus picture of the week. *** first words, last words.

Who’s got your back? One day , I decided to go with the kids on one of those adventure coaster rides. “What have I not seen before”? Were the bored thoughts that ran through my mind. While waiting for the ride to come in, I yawned as I heard people screaming afar off. Some looked like they had even puked on themselves as the ride came to an end. “Oya let’s go was the thought in my mind, bring it on!!!” Hmmmmmm... someone should have warned me that this wasn’t Dubai desert safari. We divided ourselves into two groups as the ride could only seat in pairs. Jason hung out with me in the hope that he was with big, strong and fearless daddy. As the thing took off, I got a taste of what I had gotten myself into. Jason beside me had already started to scream. “Nope, I am the man!! I am the father. I can’t be shouting besides this boy. Ahh ahhh!!! Were the thoughts running through my mind. “Jesooooooos!!!” Went the first involuntary scream. “Yayyyyyyyyyy, ahhhhhhhh, noooooooooooo” followed as I temporarily forgot who I was. Shuooo, who sent me? Uncle, trust me, when those rides start, you can temporary forget that you are working in power and miracles 😂😅🤣. Chai!! See me competing with Jason for screaming. I am sure self if not for the seatbelt, maybe I would have jumped into the boys’ lap. At that point, all the macho daddy somethings disappeared. I was like “what the world did I sign up for?” “Breathe!! Tony breathe !!!, it is only a ride”!! “Ahhhhhh yes ke!! It is only a ride” now my mindset kicked in. It forgot , the screaming, shouting person that was disgracing us 😂🤣( and those rides sure have a way of taking pictures at the worst moments 🙄) As I said those words to myself, I calmed down. Suddenly everything seemed to slow down. I closed my eyes and envisioned myself in control, I remembered it has an end point. This is what it was designed to do, scare me. At, the end, nothing more. At that point, I became bored again. Now I could enjoy the ride, in control. What can life throw at you to throw you off, haven’t you heard? the script is already written, we are past conquering!!!! Pastor Chris said in rhapsody of Sunday the 19th of January 2020, “your future is history to God... He’s seen everything and knows there is nothing capable of defeating and destroying you” chooooi, I dance in Spanish 🕺🏻!! I chew bullets for breakfast. I garnish them with my tea. Oya what’s next? Swimming with sharks? bring it on🔥💥🥋🥊🪂🧗🏽 *** buzz words for the week. Kakorrhaphiophobia is a hyped form of Atychiphobia. Yup, the two words sure exist. Kakorrhaphiophobia is an abnormal, persistent, irrational fear of failure. In clinical cases, it's debilitating: the fear of even the most subtle failure or defeat is so intense that it restricts a person from doing anything at all. *** discipline part 2 Discipline is working towards your goals in spite of your feelings. It doesn’t matter wether it is raining, snowing, wether you feel like it or not... Once the goal is set, achieve it!!! No excuses allowed!!! Rolls Royce vehicles are some of the most expensive cars in the world. They would drive on the roads of Haiti (one of the poorest countries in the world). This is because a Rolls Royce has an internal combustion engine. It is motivated from inside. Put in fuel and it would run despite the environment. To be disciplined, you must find internal motivation. A reason to wake up everyday and go. A reason to want to achieve that goal. Motivation comes from conviction. Receive a conviction about this year. A conviction on why you must stay healthy, why you must prosper, why you must be a soul winner and a partner for example. Once the conviction is there, you would have a motivation to wake up and go. That motivation would provide you the discipline. Ask an athlete why he still continues in-spite of all the pain and he will tell you it comes from motivation and conviction. This is the year of perfection, are you convinced this is true for you? It starts from there. *** #3in12challenge I am on chapter 10 of power of the mind. Where are you. I challenge you to read a chapter a day.

Ahhhhhh yes!! We are one day late. Please forgive me. I did do the post but it disappeared between loading it and KC. I didn’t save it anywhere else and had to start from scratch. Tough when you are re-doing a post that takes 2 hrs and perspiration!! Anyways..... WHAT’S ON YOUR INSIDE? Many, many, years ago, my younger sister came to visit us with her two young kids Gabby and Gaddy. Gaddy was about 3 or 4 years old so he wasn’t quite tall yet. He was also quite fair and slightly stocky. For some reasons I can’t quite pull out now, we called him “chinko” ( 🤔 hmmmm he did look quite chinese then though 🤭). Anyways, one day I got home very very tired and crashed unto a small mattress on the floor of my bedroom . Somewhere later on in my sleep, I sensed the door in my room open. Partially awake but mostly asleep, I finally forced one of my eyes open. Mehnn!!, The sight that beheld me could have taken a lesser man straight into heaven. First of all my room was very very dark. No light at all, any light had to come from outside. Also, I wasn’t wearing my glasses so I couldn’t see that well. My door was slightly open and light was pouring in from the passage way behind it. Everything looked surreal like my door was a portal into some sort of alternate universe. Then perched in between the door was this short yellow creature!!! Chai, mo gbe!! Seemed to be the first expression in my heart. In that second of the encounter I froze. Just me and this creature gazing at each other eyeball to eyeball. I could hear my heart beats in that second. And then came the explosion 💥!! “I rebuke you demon!!” came the shout from my mouth. “Out you demon, I rebuke you in the name of Jesus!” Came my bold rebukes. I was in charge, no fear. Hmmmmm, the “demon” meanwhile was frozen. It looked like he was now confused, not knowing wether to go back to hell or come into my room. Next thing I knew, I had jumped up from my bed in one karate leap. I was taking the fight to this demon!! No turning back!! “Out!! Out!! I started to scream my hands outstretched just as I had seen pastor do several times. Now I was face to face with this “demon”. I raised my hands to slap this demon on the head as a final bye bye to launch it back into hell. As my hand was just about to strike the demon, I saw Chinko’s innocent white eyes looking at me in wonderment at all the hullabaloo. I am sure the thoughts going through his mind must have been “hmmmmm what a weird uncle this sure is” When the pressure comes on the outside, what you are on the inside rises to the occasion. You cannot give what you don’t have neither can you be what you aren’t. Spend time to build yourself internally. Feed on the word so that when the storms of life come, you would be like the house of Mat. 7:25. ***This week, we study discipline. Discipline refers to self control. It is the ability to subjugate yourself to your stated goals and objectives. Paul in 1Cor. 9:27a says “I discipline my body like an athlete, training it to do what it should...” The components of discipline include focus, prioritizing, time management and ruthless devotion amongst others. I was interviewing a PG ( IYKYK 😉🤪) about his travels with Pastor Chris. His response went like this. “There is so much to learn from Pastor Chris but one of the key things for me is his self discipline” He paused and continued “Pastor has a time to sleep, a time to pray, a time to counsel, a time to study. When that time reaches, he stops every other thing to give attention to that time”. Yeah that is it. Allotting your time appropriately and ensuring that you follow your routine. Canceling all excuses and getting it done when it needs to be done. Putting your body and emotions under so as to get the job done!!! Your body was designed as a creature of habits. It likes a rhythm. Create one and it would flow. So why not create the rhythm of success? Let’s stop here this week. We will continue on discipline next week. So much to talk about. *** big shout out to @simsim Go gurl!!! You did it. 🎯🏆🥇🏅🎊. Please DM to get details on how to get your award of a magnetic Bluetooth ear bud with 7hrs battery life. Yes ke!!!

Yup, I post once a week!! Catch me every Thursday. But fret not, I give you enough content to last one week. So this morning I had to go drop off first son aka Christian( interestingly, we never call him chris at home 🤔). He had a visa interview in Abuja and we had to catch a 6am flight. So here I am waking up the boy at 4am, getting into the car by 4:30am so we could get to the airport by 5am. “Did you brush your hair? Check! Are your documents complete? Check! Did you...“ “I have called your aunt, she would pick you up at the airport” “I can’t come with you, we have a training meeting with pastor for the next 2 days”. Yup, I had planned to follow the fully grown man to go for his interview which he has done so many times on his own. Not just go with him but I was going to carry second son aka Jason along. “You know, we haven’t had a holiday in a while, let’s just go keep him company” I replied to the quizzing looks in Jason’s eyes. Ahhhhh... so if you think that was extreme, I was just warming up. I found out that an old classmate was on the same flight so I sent her money to buy his ticket so he could go with her. I then woke up the lady at 4am, ensured she was at the airport and promptly delivered him to her. After my 2nd call to the boy, she called me “Pastor Tony, your son is safe. He is with me” lol 😂. I still made 2 more calls and sent messages. “Oya let’s pray” “I have sent you money” Choi!! See my life!! Then I started peppering his aunt with calls. When she didn’t answer, I called my younger brother to call her. I then started to look for someone in Abuja to call to pick up a 21 year old who has travelled half the world severally on his own🤦🏻♂️. Anyways in all this, it hit me again. PTI, you have entered into mummy mode!! Yup, I was in full blown mummy mode!! It wasn’t always like this. I only started doing mummy full blown 5 years ago. I however took it to another level 3 years ago 😂. Before then, it went like this... “Who is Mr Ogunsakin” I would ask like the umpteenth time? Then their mother would explain “Mr Ogunsakin is Jason’s current English teacher. He was Christian’s class teacher 5 years ago when he was in year 7. He became Jason’s class teacher 3 years ago when Jason was in year 7. Now he is Jason’s English teacher” “was that not Mrs Obi I would ask sheepishly” “Tony go and have your bathe, let’s sha go for the boy’s tea party!!” she would say in exasperation. Then I would say in my mind “wow, this woman is a genius. I, that can barely remember birthdays how can she know all that?” I am even sure that I have mixed up all the names and classes as I write. 😂🤣😅 Yo!! Mummy’s are a special breed. They know who the kids class teachers are, who their friends are, their friends birthdays and all kinds of minutiae details even if they have 8 kids. The scriptures lets us know that God is both mummy and daddy (Gen. 17:1). Like a mummy He fusses over you down to your every detail. Didn’t you hear that if a hair from you head falls, he will know? Relax, He’s got you covered. He said to Abraham in Gen 17:1 walk before me and be perfect. Infact my mummy mode overdo is nothing compared to how God fusses over us. ** #3in12challenge loading. Administration. The difference between a goal and an idea is administration. Administration is the planning that you put in to make the goal a reality. Goals are measurable and have accountability. Without administration, the goal is DOA. So let’s take a simple goal, e.g, I want to lose weight. We have to build administration around that goal. Some questions to ask? 1. How much weight are we taking off 2. What procedures do we need to put in place to ensure the goal is met. 3. When is the start point and end point of each procedures 4. Who needs to be informed or held accountable on the goal. A goal is achieved via procedures. As each of these procedures are carried out, the goal is achieved. For example Idea: I need to take a walk every day as part of my fitness therapy. Administration: I need to take a 30 mins walk at 7pm 5 days in the week as part of my fitness therapy Now we can expand it further I need to take a 30mins walk at 7pm every Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday. Even further I need to take a fast 30mins walk at 7pm every Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday. In the walk, I must burn 250 calories. I would record it in my journal and check if it is consistent with my goal. So I must set a prayer time, a study time, a book reading time. We are indeed creatures of habits. Once you do stuff consistently, it becomes a habit and controls you. It is a good thing if you know how to apply it to achieve excellence. Once I get an idea, I first write it down then I develop it. I share it with a friend or two so that they can help me develop it further via the questions they would ask me. Then I quickly find who would help me actualise that idea. In doing this, I get someone to own it alongside with me. Then I do the above and it becomes a goal. If you don’t apply administration to a goal, you cannot apply discipline neither can you apply consistency. ** buzz word for the week “Deepfake” Deepfakes are media that take a person in an existing image or video and replace them with someone else's likeness using artificial neural networks. They often combine and superimpose existing media onto source media using machine learning techniques known as autoencoders and generative adversarial networks. Bottom line, using deep learning which is a subset of artificial intelligence, it is possible to scan millions of pictures, videos and voice recordings to create a video that suggests an individual is doing or saying something they never did or said. So many videos on the internet are deepfake but they are so good, you think they are real. Big problem is that it is difficult to spot them. **Fitness exercise for the week. Achieve a walking goal of 50k steps in 7 days and paste here. You are not allowed to walk all 50k in one day. It must be across a minimum of 3 days. You can threadmill it, walk it, crawl it, sha DO IT. Paste your results here and you get a gift😉 ** what am I reading? The Power of your mind by Chris Oyakhilome D.Sc., D.D. If you have read it, read it again. There are 13 chapters. Can you read one chapter daily? Can you also summarize some points you learnt from each chapter. I challenge you to read a chapter a day. I am on chapter 3 so far. **Playlist of the week. So this week, I am Featuring Se OK!! Pastor Semi Oketunji. An extraordinary personality.

Please post your own pictures let’s appreciate people’s ingenuity. **rant of the week. Hmmmmm all those drivers that would be in your front and would be driving as if they are in a sauna. How come they always seem to appear when you are in a hurry. They appear most especially in a traffic jam and leave so much space in their front. You would be fumming 😤behind them glaring at them, even honking and they would be looking so oblivious. mtchewww!!😠😤🥵 People would be entering into their front and they would be so casual like they have the whole time in the world. Suddenly when you want to speed past them, they would accelerate like if they just remembered something only to slow down once you slow down. Like, seriously? 🙄😠 Anyways, I quieten down and tell myself “Tony, calm down. God is training you. You too, you should have left home early. Don’t allow traffic demons ruin your day” I calm down oh, but hmmmmm sometimes it looks like those people were sent just especially to torture you. 🤪🤣😅😂 **Last words! First words! Please get the new year message and listen to it every day of this quarter. It is just 45 mins. Set a time every day for it. Trust me, it would propel you. Right now, you can get it on PCDL. Choi I try 👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽. See as I am even hailing myself. Okay oh!! ( yup that is my handle ), I am done for the week. See ya all next week. Till then sayonara!!
Yayyyyyyy!!! It is a newwwww year!!! Welcome to 2020 our year of perfection. Hmmmmm... let me see🤔. January is the month of resolutions. The usual suspect :- I want to lose weight this year!! I must lose 20kg by end of January. Then we get to June and we find that we are 20kg heavier. Or, I want to pray more, study more, listen more!!! then you find yourself 6 months later knowing more about the Tottenham fc players, coaching team and board members than about the new year message. “Did Pastor Chris really say that!!” You shout when you hear someone sharing a testimony on how they used that word to prosper. Nugget alert!! Pastor Chris said that by March, our achievements of three months would look to us like a whole year. My interpretation:- I will accomplish all of my existing 2020 goals by March. Meaning that I have to raise my bar and dream higher. I found a long time ago that anything God allows me to dream about, I can achieve. The fact my mind can comprehend it, means that I can achieve it. Question most times is how. One day, Pastor Chris called me and put me out of my misery regarding that question. He said “Tony 3 things you need: Administration, Discipline and Consistency” 3 things I need to achieve my dreams. I throw to you today, the #3in12challenge. Hitting your 12 month goals in 3 months. In my next post, we start with administration. So this is PTI Live!! My KC Superuser page. Thank you dear Pastor Rita for my new year gift.
