In this blog, I write what I am fervent about with the aim of inspiring, encouraging and challenging you to grow towards being the best possible version of yourself.

Start with Gratitude - Njeri Muchunu BlogPost


As I listened to the first Sunday sermon for 2021, these words stood out for me “START WITH GRATITUDE”. The reason they did is that for most of us, 2020 was nothing like we had anticipated. We were forced out of our comfort zones. We had to rethink how we live. Who knew that wearing masks

At my “Wits’ End”!

I received a phone call recently from a dear friend. Panicked, she began to tell me that she felt as if she were at her Wits' End. She was out of options, out of ideas, out of patience. She did not know what to say or what to do. I instantly related to her words. How

The love of a father


I am deeply saddened by today’s global culture, which is a culture of fatherlessness. This culture teaches or has taught people to think like they are orphans and therefore renders an orphan defenseless in their own minds. The traditional family structure has changed in ways that deprive children of a minimal relationship with their father,

Corrupt Heart!

Each time I write an article about a leadership challenge, I look at it from a personal perspective and how I can first purify my own heart on the said issue. My mantra is, don’t go removing the speck in another’s eye before checking for the log in your own eye. I am not saying

Leadership and Surrender

You’ll rarely encounter the words leadership and surrender used together in a complementary fashion. Society has labeled surrender as a sign of leadership weakness, when in fact, it can be among the greatest of leadership strengths. The whole idea of surrendering to someone else’s control runs counter to the prevailing mindset of our culture—we don’t

Where is My Life Going?

Are you wandering around aimlessly in your life or are you living a purposeful life? For most of my life, I just lived without giving much thought to what the purpose of living was. However, twelve (12) years ago, I started to ponder what the purpose of my life was. I had just lost a

Personal Branding

I spoke to a leader today who told me that they are working with a coach to brand themselves as well as increase their brand presence on social media. This rather intrigued me because the person I was speaking to is a leader and an influencer for all intents and purposes. What I mean is,

Principled Leadership

Adolf Hitler came to office promising the German people a return to their former glory as a nation. Yet, once he was führer, his distorted values and love for self-gratification grew increasingly clear as he persecuted Germany’s citizens for his own selfish purposes. In every area of life – government, business, religion, media, education and

Leader Dishonesty!

How dishonest have we become as a people? How has dishonesty become a way of life in our nation. In the name of COVID-19 more and more funds are being wasted and stolen. More and more lives are lost to floods and evictions. And the excuse is COVID-19. We are caught up in on-going press conferences which

Let Go of the Pain

“Brothers, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead.” Philippians 3:13 Have you ever felt like something is hampering your progress as a Leader? Do you feel as if you are being held back? Could something

Heart Leadership

Leadership is relational as much as it is positional. As a leader, if you take a relational approach to leadership, you will never walk alone. If you are a positional leader on the other hand, you will often find yourself walking a very lonely road. Every time you use your title to “persuade” your people to
