Life is a marathon, not a sprint.



To win, you must know the type of race you are on. Without a proper understanding of the kind of race you are running, you will not prepare adequately, and delivery will be fruitless.

The mission of the IEM APPROACH is to inspire, equip, and motivate people to discover God’s great potential in them and take action.

You must discover, develop, and deploy to reach your full potential. Part of the process is to understand that you are running a marathon. It is going to require the following for you to be all you God created you to be:

Hard work

Perseverance

Tenacity

Long-suffering 

Self-discipline

Self-control 

Tenacity

Mental toughness

Grit

Sweat and tears, etc.

In short, just because you are gifted doesn't mean that you will deliver like a pro; without practicing and pushing yourself somebody who is not as gifted as you will eat your lunch. It will be imperative for you to get out of your comfort zone and change if you want to be all you God created you to be.

Ask a grain of corn what it has to go through to become a hundred grains and income cases two hundred and more. The corn must be exposed to the elements, and it has to change and become a plant, then it will multiply. Without these changes, there is no increase.

Are you changing? Have the people you hang around with, the books you read, movies you watch, and the places you visit changed over the years? Many people want change. But they don’t want to change. How is this possible?

To run this Marathon and win, you must keep your eye on the prize and keep going no matter what. You must keep going even when every fiber in your body wants you to stop. When you are knocked down seven times, get up the eighth time. Winners don’t quit, and quitters never win. Do you want to win? Then you have to adopt the marathon attitude which says, “I know the race is long, tedious and demanding and will take a long time to get to the end, yet I will hang in there and finish no matter what.”

The marathon today was my first in 2020 and the seventh solo marathon since last year, but it was still hard, and I felt like giving up many times. The only thing that kept me going is the promise I made to myself to finish the race. I am not running for anybody and will be the person to harvest the health benefits when I finish.

Stop looking around and focus on your race because you are racing against yourself. It does not matter how far others have gone. You were not born on the same day, and your assignment is different. Why wast value time and energy comparing yourself to others? You will always find those that are lagging behind you and others that have gone far ahead of you. Therefore, there is no need to compare. Run your race till the end, and you will be rewarded.

The IEM APPROACH is a holistic way of life; the physical and spiritual must be in synergy for real, lasting, and sustainable success.
