Where is the wealthiest nation located? Some would say it’s the USA, some would refer to England, china, Russia or Germany, but I would disagree to that. The wealthiest nation is not what you can see or feel or touch, the wealthiest nation lives inside of us. We have failed to see the amount of potential we bear, the ability and capacity of what we carry, we have ignored purpose and destiny, we have turned our back on faith and hope, we have believed that failure is constant! We have limited who we are and who we can be, we have completely ignore tomorrow and have kept on remembering yesterday. Dare to be different; don’t run because you see everyone running, don’t try to hide who you are from the society, state, country or even the world. Let the earth fill your presence, try to live an indelible mark on the surface of the earth, let the sands of time mark your foot steps and remember you for who you are and what you’ve done. Be a beacon of hope, and icon of believe and a source of inspiration.
. Dare to dream:
Are you not tired of living live a coward, like somebody who has no place to fit or nothing to pursue, are you not tired of getting trampled upon? Have you ever tried to ask yourself this simple question “WHAT AM I LIVING FOR?” what are my purpose and reason for existing? Am I just living because my parents just wanted a child or is there a greater calling behind my life?
If we were to pay money or lots of money to dream……. Then maybe we shouldn’t or would dream once in a while, but God has made imagination free, you don’t have to pay a dime to dream of where you want to be in the next 5 to 10 years from now, you don’t have to toil day and night to have just one beautiful dream of/for yourself. Don’t try limiting your capacities and potentials because of the blockages you see now, or because of the social status of your family. Imagine, Discover, Enquiry; knowledge is golden, wisdom is a treasure, understanding is a crown jewel. What make a man is not how he looks outward or the quantity of his cars, houses or pocket, what makes a man is inward, it is something money can’t price, you can’t buy it neither can you sell it, you can put a price tag on it, what makes a man is what he carries upstairs in his brain, it is called “Knowledge”.
. Knowledge, Wisdom and Understanding:
Knowledge is golden;
Wisdom is a treasure;
Understanding is a crown jewel.
KNOWLEDGE: But having the right knowledge-wisdom-and-understanding is what matter. You could have the knowledge of something you are not supposed to have and that could lead to sin, having knowledge is good but having the right knowledge is another entirely different thing.
WISDOM: You don’t get wisdom like how you get knowledge. Knowledge is circular, wisdom is divine. I could read all the physics, chemistry, math, biology and other subjects and know them in that instant, I would have the knowledge of them—but wisdom is now putting it into action. Have you ever had of someone who reads off his/her head throughout the night for an exam in the morning so to make an A!—- it’s common, but one funny thing even if it’s not so funny is that they see the question and then they remember they read it over and over again, they know the answer but they find it difficult to put it down in writing or say it out loud, but there mind knows the answer, inside them knowledge has thrown out the answer but it is left for wisdom to put it in the right order. So you see possessing knowledge is one thing and having wisdom is another thing.
If wisdom is used for sinned it is not wisdom, it is total foolishness. You can be an armed robber and escape the police in a crookey way and call it wisdom…… any kind of wisdom that would lead to hell is foolishness.
UNDERSTANDING: The ability to break down information into simpler and bearable particle is called understanding (my definition). In the book of Proverbs 4:5 the bible says “Get wisdom! Get understanding! Do not forget, nor turn away from the words of my mouth.” Also the bible said in proverbs again “Proverbs 4:7 Wisdom is the principal thing; Therefore, get wisdom. And in all your getting, get understanding. ´’. The bible has justified it that getting knowledge and wisdom alone is not just it, you need understanding. Without understanding you cannot know the use of the phone in your hand, without understanding you can pass that test, that exam you wrote.
Therefore, if I were to put K W U in a pattern it would be like this K U W (knowledge – Understanding – Wisdom); You see a spherical object on the ground knowledge will alert you that’s a spherical object, understanding will tell you it’s a football, wisdom would tell you kick it with your leg. One cannot work without the other, none is inevitable, you need all three brothers to work together.
Pursue your dream, create and mold who you want to be. In your hand you bear a tool called purpose and you used that told to streamline/forge yourself into what you want to be for your future which is destiny. It’s okay to fall but it’s not okay to remain on the ground, it’s normal to get tired but it’s not normal to give up…….. push push push, keep on pushing hard, you might not find what you have at door number one but you still have so many doors to open at your age, don’t give up too soon if possible don’t give up at all, you never know how close you are too your treasures if you do.
Some people define f.a.i.l as First Attempt In Learning, but I would disagree to that definition, failure doesn’t only symbolize your first attempt in learning, if not you Thomas Edison would not have been said to experience failure 999 time before success. Men who have succeeded built on fail, a genuine success does not just come out at once and succeed—-that success most have failed once or twice. Sometimes you wonder how men succeed despite the number of failed attempts, the answer is simple “Persistence”, there’s this definition I read somewhere about persistence, they said persistence is stubbornness with purpose.
