An elephant and a dog became pregnant at same time.
Three months down the line the dog gave birth to six puppies.

Six months later the dog was pregnant again, and nine months on it gave birth to another dozen puppies.

The pattern continued….

On the eighteenth month the dog approached the elephant questioning, “Are you sure that you are pregnant?

We became pregnant on the same date, I have given birth three times to a dozen puppies and they are now grown to become big dogs, yet you are still pregnant. Whats going on?”

The elephant replied, “There is something I want you to understand.

What I am carrying is not a puppy but an elephant.

I only give birth to one in two years. When my baby hits the ground, the earth feels it.

When my baby crosses the road, human beings stop and watch in awe and admiration, what I carry draws attention. So what I’m carrying is mighty and great.

Dear friend, whenever anyone tries to mock you or your dream just because they can’t see results yet.

Let them know that there is greatness within you.

Remind them that it may be slow, but it is sure and it is extraordinary.

Most importantly, don’t ever stop working on birthing that greatness within you… no matter what they say… no matter what you see… no matter how you feel.

Be unstoppable.


Learn to Listen to your Vision’s Instructions by also learning immense patience and discipline.

You cannot expect to sow a Cocoa Seed 🌱 and expect the harvest to come in the timeframe of Maize 🌽. 

One is called a cash crop because it clearly generates more revenue than the other. And it takes longer time to reach harvest. 

When you’ve written your dreams/visions/aims/objectives/aspirations/goals, by careful analysis, you will know when to expect the results you’re seeking and the quality of hard work you need to put into it in other to get the expected result.

Leverage all your energy in bringing your “pregnancy” to term and please DON’T RUSH THE PROCESS.

Your friend,
