Dr. Trimm's life lessons
• It is important to know where you are going and have the audacity to pursue it.
• People who have never been where you are going will never give you the right direction.
• Break away from the clutter of the common; stop blending in and start blending out.
• If you don’t like where you are now, you are one decision away from where you want to be.

Last weekend finally came, and with it the much-awaited mother of all Eve Sisters, which was graced by the phenomenal Dr Cindy Trimm.
Women thronged Hilton Hotel in large numbers and with high expectation, excitement. They chit chatted as they awaited for the sold-out event to start.
Every seat was taking, the parking was full and the staircase was filled with more women climbing up delicately in heels to attend the forum.
Women were just too eager to listen to the lady of the moment. And when she took to the stage; she got such a thunderous applause the roof should have been blown off.
With quiet confidence and authority, she started with an anecdote from the movie Alice in Wonderland. When Alice is asked where she is going and she says she does not know, her questioner answers, “Then it does not matter which path you take.”
She asked the women, “Do you know where you are going? You have got to know who you are and where you are going. Have the audacity to say it courageously because it produces intention. There are many different voices.
The relevant voice is God’s and yourself. You have got to hear yourself speaking and faith comes from hearing the word of God. The unspoken voice is attitude. Observe the attitude that people demonstrate to you and use it to improve yourself.”
She continued: “Positive energy draws away negative people. I have so much positive energy. Wherever I go, I change the environment.”
She went on, “What one thing can you do that will change everything. Are things the way they are because of your choices? You are responsible for your life. Life is the way it is because of the choices you have made.
