Confining our minds to past personal experiences has a viable potential of limiting one's goal. For most professionals in law, business, medicine, engineering, banking and lots more, there is a high tendency to restrict our plans in life to only career and financial earning. 

We forget the innate abilities, skills and gifts that we are graced with; not to mention the valuable assets that our experiences can translate into. 

I made a decision to begin to diversify in  the things that I would learn daily. Limiting my knowledge to my medical field of expertise was draining. Although pursuing my career to its peak is still ongoing, I later discovered that my mind was craving to learn something different.

Reading wide on different topics became my norm. The quest for new information led me to meeting different persons that helped in shaping my thoughts. I attended an informal meeting on platform growth with Emeka Nobis and it gave me a reason to look beyond myself for wider impact. 

That same day, I started my blog. I was an amateur who didn't know the nitty gritty of running one, but I started. I had to transit from a free blog to a paid blog later on. I created a Facebook group, got a new account on Twitter and  Instagram, and also created a public figure page on Facebook since I had reached the maximum friend limit of 5,000.

Writing and inspiring others has been a pleasure for me, which led to my habit of typing my daily posts on Facebook. I got lots of inspiring comments and even had persons that I have never seen share their struggles with me. This spurred me to thinking on a large scale in reaching out to others.

I had to start seeing things differently while expecting possibility in the midst of nothing. The people we spend time with, the books we read and even the social media links that we love to spend time on actually influence our thought pattern. Remember the scripture verse, "As iron sharpens iron, so a man sharpens the countenance of his friend". We are the product of the books, persons and things that we spend time with.
