What If?

What if?

6 years ago, I asked 'what if I can be part of an educational system that any child that goes through it, won't have an excuse not to succeed'

3 years later, I started that system Prikkle Academy (www.prikkleacademy.org)

7 years ago, I was tired of just having certificates that is based on obsolete knowledge, I asked, 'what if I can soak myself in lifelong learning, without having to be in the 4 walls of the classroom?'

6 years running, I learn from everything you can and can't imagine - trees, the smell from a toilet, trips, children's voices,  conversations, unexpected disappointments (oh yes), reject emails, a simple email, complete silence, a text message, my mess, message and many more.

The more what ifs I have that tend towards doing things against the norm, the more energy, desire and action I put into making it become a reality.

I saw the picture I attached to this post on Instagram and it made to reflect on the several 'what if it can happen' in my life, that has turned into 'why not, it's happening'

In your life, when was it that you came up with a 'what if' that propelled you to take massive action? 

What are some of your own 'What ifs?'

Share it in the comment. I can't wait to read and be inspired. . . .#youarelimitless

Hi Damilola,

Thanks for sharing your inspiring post. It's great that you were that motivated by that simple post.

What if I can have the dream life that I always wanted and deserve... the home with a sunset view, the dream NGO to help as many women and girls worldwide to help end slavery, the best and most loving marriage and family, the most self-love and acceptance, and the most optimum health:-)

Hope you're having a great day and week:-)

Hi Jill.
I am inspired with your what ifs. Thanks for sharing it.
A tiny question for you, 'is there any of your what ifs that you are working towards already?'

I agree with you, Leila. We can be inspired by anything if we allow our mind get off the norm.
