Everything we know and believe while growing up, we picked from our environment. This could be from our parents, relatives, television, neighbors, streets, or school. And even as adults, we come to accept many of these things as our reality. Consequently, they control, constrain and shape our lives.
It is then our responsibility to find out what exactly we want out of life, and what it would cost us to attain it. Once we know the price, then it is our duty to expose ourselves to it long enough till we achieve our aims.
Many years ago, Bishop David Oyedepo went to Oral Roberts University. When he saw the ambience and beauty, he was wowed, and exclaimed: “If it can happen anywhere, it can happen everywhere!” This exposure had given birth to more than three world-class universities today.
Read that book; start that friendship; take that course; go on that tour; visit that distant relative; go to another state, town or country; take another route to work; listen to that CD; watch that training program.
Just one word or phrase or image could be the spark that you need to get the inspiration that will make you an icon.
Go for exposure.
I believe in you!
