Hi everyone. It’s an honour to be on this prestigious platform to share with us this evening @KemiOdutayo #ListenUpNG @Dabiraipoola

I would be sharing on the topic ‘What Are You Dwelling On?’ #ListenUpNG @KemiOdutayo @Kemitalkin @GbemiOgunrinde @akenade

1. We are all on a journey in life moving from somewhere in our past towards an amazing future which begins now #ListenUpNG @MichellevT_inSA

2. Remember success is a journey not a destination #ListenUpNG @DeleAgbogun @Kemitalkin @akenade @WomenOfHistory

3. Often our minds are filled with information that is either obsolete or not useful #ListenUpNG @FamousWomen @MichellevT_inSA @NikeAdeyemi

4. This information often impedes our progress or emotional well being #ListenUpNG @MensaOtabil @IdahosaLaurie @Dabiraipoola

Regardless of whatever experience you’ve had, if its not adding value to you, it will take from you #ListenUpNG @KemiOdutayo @NikeAdeyemi

I understand that sometimes we’ve been deeply hurt and betrayed by people we love #ListenUpNG @BIUpresident @akenade @OmatseyeOti

8. Notwithstanding we have to release the hurt and allow God to heal us #ListenUpNG @KayodeOdutayo @DeleAgbogun @BidemiMarkMordi

9. That’s not to say it will come easy. Infact, sometimes it is really hard #ListenUpNG @KemiOdutayo @Kemitalkin @KayodeOdutayo @KennyAileru

10. The pain of being hurt is real and sometimes we don’t know how to go about it #ListenUpNG @iamtundeadisa @GbemiOgunrinde @akenade

11. Nevertheless God commands us to forgive in order to live a full and wholesome life #ListenUpNG @MensaOtabil @seyioladimeji @JephKing

17. Unforgiveness is like drinking poison and expecting the other person to die #ListenUpNG @dayus4heaven @Remi_Dairo @pastorNomthi @aoteh

18. A wise man once said ‘to forgive is to set a prisoner free and to discover that the prisoner is you’ #ListenUpNG @KemiOdutayo @ToluIlori

19. Forgiveness is critical because it affects everything else #ListenUpNG @PastorMarjorie @praisefowowe @Dabiraipoola @Epic_Women

20. Forgiveness is the hallway between the past and the future #ListenUpNG @KemiOdutayo @pastorNomthi @Nwannegolden @fullandfree

21. Therefore in your pain, put your focus on God. Ask Him to help you #ListenUpNG @KemiOdutayo @LanreAgboola1 @LaraKudayisi @LagosMums

22. Research has shown that emotionally-induced illnesses (EII) are traceable to unforgiveness, bitterness, rage, etc. #ListenUpNG @akenade

23. Don’t dwell on those negative and energy-draining things, rather deal with them as they come #ListenUpNG @lanreolusola @GbemiOgunrinde

24. Don’t put a full stop where God has put a coma #ListenUpNG @SpeakUp_GetHelp @hillsongunited @uwabeloved @UnusualTeajay @Uwaomaeizu

25. Nothing means anything except the meaning you ascribe to it #ListenUpNG @MichellevT_inSA @InnocentUsar @Modupe_Ehirim @LanreAgboola1

26. Consciously change the meaning of painful events of your past #ListenUpNG @DanielAkpata @WomenOfHistory @NikeAdeyemi @OmatseyeOti

27. Be intentional about seeing things from a positive perspective #ListenUpNG @Dabiraipoola @Remi_Dairo @GbemiOgunrinde @PGeeman

28. Because you become whatever you dwell on. You have to deliberately resist what you don’t desire #ListenUpNG @yomitheprof @AuntLanda

29. You have to take responsibility to create the change that you desire #ListenUpNG @KemiOdutayo @Kemitalkin @lalaakindoju @kemiadeadeniji

30. In life, you’ll often find what you focus on #ListenUpNG @alphabetsuccess @FamousWomen @JolaJ_A @kingdomafricatv @bisiadewale

31. Always remember that everyone acts to the best of their knowledge per time #ListenUpNG @NikeAdeyemi @ThriVewithBabs @dayus4heaven

32. Learn to view issues from.a multidimensional view #ListenUpNG @BIUpresident @IdahosaLaurie @Risenetworks

33. When your action on someone or something, you have indirectly surrendered your mind to them #ListenUpNG @Epic_Women @WomenOfHistory

34. Responsibility empowers while blame disempowers #ListenUpNG @Dabiraipoola @NLPwithIMI @dexteraa @DaystarNG

35. Sometimes, we dwell on.our past ‘failures’ or past ‘success’ #ListenUpNG @bisiadewale @bosefawehinmi @funkyally @fullandfree

36. Each new day affords you the opportunity to try again #ListenUpNG @VictorOladokun @VictorAdeyemi @GbemisolaIsaacs @drhow2 @BruceVH

38. “Everyday is a classroom, every experience a lesson, and every person a teacher”- quote #ListenUpNG @JumokeAkinrinma @jumokeadenowo

39. Decide today that regardless of how many times you fall, you will rise again #ListenUpNG @JumokeAdeyemi @JulieMogbo @A4ARise @akenade

40. “We are boxed in by the boundary conditions of our thinking” – Albert Einstein #ListenUpNG @dinmanwobi @lanreolusola @Career_Enhancer

41. If we are courageous, there is good to brined in every experience #ListenUpNG @sam_adeyemi @DaystarNG @DeleAgbogun @Bollarinwa @akenade

42. What doesn’t kill us makes us stronger #ListenUpNG @BridgetElesin @BidemiMarkMordi @bosefawehinmi @DrBillWinston @BeHeaIthy

45.Note that no matter the high level of your past or current success there is always a better place #ListenUpNG @IAmSteveHarris @smartbcamp

46. Do not rest on your oars, there are yet more ‘territories to be conquered’ #ListenUpNG @MensaOtabil @RickWarren @BillyGraham @BillGates

47. Your past ‘success’ or ‘failures’ is nothing compared to your glorious future #ListenUpNG @seyioladimeji @ayodaniels @RSegundada @aoteh

48. What seems impossible today may become easy tomorrow #ListenUpNG @AuntLanda @ayoemakhiomhe @Career_Enhancer @TaffiDollar @bisiadewale

49. Please stop playing the small game. Stop being absent from the party of your life #ListenUpNG @CessoKay @dinmanwobi @Tadecash @dexteraa

50. Fully participate in the party called life #ListenUpNG @Dabiraipoola @IdahosaLaurie @GbemiOgunrinde @funkebucknor @BeHeaIthy @JolaJ_A

51a. Life is a magical piece of matching our humanity with our divinity #ListenUpNG @JoyceMeyer @aihot @BrianCHouston @MaxLucado @KennyAileru

51b. A wise man said the concerns of your heart are secondary. What’s important is that you have life and you should appreciate it #ListenUpNG

51c. Your life does not have to be perfect before you show sincere gratitude to God #ListenUpNG @Dabiraipoola @MichellevT_inSA @LanreAgboola1

52. You are special and dearly loved by God.No experience no matter how painful can change that truth #ListenUpNG @ZurielOlowe @TheZigZiglar

53. Never forget that all things will work together for your good because God loves you #ListenUpNG @TobbsO_ @DarleneZschech @TheZigZiglar

54. In closing I’ll ask again ‘what are you dwelling on?’ Life or death? Gratitude or complaints? Pain or gain? #ListenUpNG @NikeAdeyemi

55. To all my sisters out there, your best days aren’t over. They’re ahead of you #ListenUpNG @NikeAdeyemi @nneomaeffanga1 @nkyru

56. Its been a great time of sharing and learning. We’re all a work in progress #ListenUpNG @bosefawehinmi @Bosetiti @PhilipAmiola

57. Thanks for having me @KemiOdutayo Regardless of the bottlenecks, we still pulled through. Winners don’t quit. #ListenUpNG @Dabiraipoola
