I want to win and I am not going to shy away from that desire. There are so many stereotypical ways of life society imposes on us and I am tired of listening to them.

Someone would say that me proclaiming that I want to win, comes across as egotistical or arrogant and I don’t care. The thing is my idea of winning and someone else’s are different.

I want to win by adding value to your life

I want to win by inspiring a kid out there to put his head down and do the work.

I want to inspire you to find fulfilment.

I want to help you find your purpose in life.

I’ve had some wins throughout my writing. I started this journey when I was trying to find my place on earth and almost two years in, I’m enjoying it more than ever. It is a great passion and I appreciate it because it is a great gift God has bestowed upon me.

I have learned that patience is a great asset to achieving anything I want in my life.

You need to believe

There were definitely moments in my writing journey where I thought to myself:

“Why aren’t my articles getting shared?”

“Why am I not getting claps?”

“Why aren’t my readers commenting?”

It took a long time before I saw the first comment and significantly impressive claps. In fact, the most successful article is the one I published a week ago and it blew my mind how much love it received.

It took almost two years of writing for people to recognize my work and give me props for that.

There was one action (amongst other important actions) I took and it was to believe. I had to believe that in due time you will notice my hard work and show your love for the value I add to your lives.

I had to believe that my passion will show noticeable results if I didn’t give up, but kept working and working.

Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding- Proverbs 3:5

I had to trust that God didn’t give me this great gift in vain. He knows the plans He has for my life. All it is that I have to do is trust in Him, be patient and keep my head down and do the work.


Your life has a purpose. Adventure into the world and find that purpose. Always have it in your heart that it takes time, a lot of work and belief, to see the results you desire.

Thank you for reading. Please share the article to help other people find it.
