Past mistakes and failures should no longer define or limit you


By Jotham Johnson, Sierra Leone

Allow me to start my message by reminding you the line of the famous Poem ,The Road Not Taken by Robert Frost

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood
And sorry I could not travel both…………..
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.
The Road Not Taken by Robert Frost


Right about now if you have been an ardent follower of the Chains series you must be at a crossroad. Aware that your past mistakes and failures should no longer define or limit you. That the words and opinions of others should not take you of course. That your passion must serve others also and with the full realization of your worth and the endless possibilities that lie ahead for your taking.

Fully armed with such knowledge, making progress might seem to some like the easiest thing to do, however this is not always the case. There is often an attachment that we form to our normal state of affairs. We have become accustomed to abuse, mediocrity and self pity so much so that taking a step away becomes like leaving the known for the unknown.

At this moment be armed with worth and hope. Close your eyes imagine all what you wish to change and to become, then write them down. Close your eyes think of everything that makes you unique, and that will help you achieve your goals and write them down. Read it over and over in your mind and then out loud until it sinks into your inmost parts. Surround yourself with positive energy. People and things that point to your worth and hope. Then ever so gently like a baby learning to walk begin to take the necessary steps towards your new and fulfilled life. Be sure all will not be rosy, some days will be tough but don’t turn back because of some difficulty. Be encouraged that you have a fortified new mindset.

With God being your helper there is no turning back. Make the commitment today to move to your unexplored territory. For so long you have been held back, starved and deprived of fullness. You have the next move, you can change the story for good from today.
