GOOD, GREAT, UNSTOPPABLE .

Before we change the world we have to change ourselves. You are your own biggest asset. This body has a growth limit but your mind doesn’t. Set your life on a different trajectory. A lot of young people lose hope looe vision and starts complaining. If you are getting nothing from one direction why don’t you turn and go the other way, there is never a lack of opportunity.

The most important thing is that you must have a vision, without a vision, without a goal you are drifting around in circle, you cannot end up anywhere. People don’t get successful by accident. Follow your passion, do something you are very passionate about. Baby steps count as long as you are moving forward.

Don’t Let your Body Deceive you

Don’t pity yourself, don’t pity your body, don’t say I don’t want to stress my body, guess what if you don’t stress your body to doing the right thing today!!…your body is going to stress you for the rest of your life. I believe you can reach your fullest potential. The body always wants to sleep, the body always wants to be pleased in its own way, it doesn’t want to work, it doesn’t want to grind, but your mind has the power over your body, you have the power to determine what to and what not to do. Don’t let your body make you live a regretful future. If you do what is easy your life would be hard, take life on, hold it by its neck. Be willing to take the consequences.

We all have these negative thoughts in our head, but don’t let it drown out who you want to be. The spirit is willing but the flesh is weak. Don’t let being blind, dump, deaf or cripple discourage you, be the captain of your body, let your mind control your body and not your body control your mind. You can not only be the champion of the whole world, you can be the champion of your body. People exist who are not champions of their body, they are subjected to it, yea! The might have made money, the might have everything moving well for them, but deep deep down within themselves they are under subjection to their body and they know it, but do not know how to except the trap inside themselves.

Your body is weak, I repeat your body is weak, it can only go so far, It wants to be who you want to be but it doesn’t want to work hard to that point. A broken body is better than a broken spirit, because when the spirit is broken nothing absolutely nothing can move not even the body. Don’t get stuck in your own body, remember this body all clay, the real us cannot be seen yet.

Push yourself beyond your limits, don’t do what you did last year, last two years or else you would still get the same result. Change is hard I know, living your comfort zone is difficult, living the warmness of home and going into the cold world is difficult I know, but if you don’t move out of that your warm comfort zone now and move to the cold world , sooner than later your comfort zone is going to become cold soon. Doing the same thing over and over again doesn’t teach you anything new.

You can make the commitment to your life that you don’t like the result you are getting and you are willing to take chances to get a different result, if changing makes you inconvenient – so what?!!, there is nothing as powerful as a human spirit. Don’t ever expect people to understand you. Who you are depends fully on what you do.

Everybody has that desire to make a difference but the find it difficult to make that difference, they have been subjected to what the body wants to do. Life is not convenient, it doesn’t go how you want it, it doesn’t go how you expect it to be, that’s why it is called life. The reason why people don’t become what they want is because they’ve been too attached to who they are. Everybody has a hard road, have faith in yourself not your body, your spirit, your mind not your body because your body will always disappoint you, if you don’t push yourself you can never be better than who you are.

Somewhere deep inside you know the kind of person you want to be, whatever you are born to be is in you now. Every seed has the potential of becoming a tree but if that tree decides to remain the that seed shell, if that tree decides it would become subjected by that seed, it would never become a tree, it would never bear fruits that would produce seeds to produce more trees. People who made it don’t operate under the law of their body. They don’t sleep 20 hours a day and play for 4 hours. Pleasing your body always will destroy you from becoming who you are meant to be.

WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO DO WITH THE TIME YOU HAVE LEFT?

 

MODERN AGE TECHNOLOGY(effects to the society)

The world today has begun counting success as the amount of money we have in our account. Everybody is so involved in this rat race, this madness that we have forgotten what real success is, what real success feels like. We counts hours spent on doing things that have low effects to our happiness  as success. Facebook, Twitter, Instagram has given us digital friends the we’ve forgotten what true friendship feels like. These digital touch screens have made us lose touch to our life, our family. Everybody wants to be rich, everybody wants to be famous, everybody wants that crowd shouting their name, and though we may deny it sometimes, but we are scared of not being remembered, we’re scared of OBLIVION. Have you ever been at the beach an early morning or late in the evening, you discover that the sea and the sky looks they’re together with the sun in their middle, now that’s unanimity, and it’s something you barely find in people today.              Real success is when you have a happy and progressing family, when you have real friends you’re always close to, friends that you could talk to whenever you feel down whenever you need an advice. You don’t let the digital age touch screens make you lose the touch of life.

The Rich man’s and Poor man’s Mentality

Rich men are often called stingy, wicked and crude, am talking about genuinely rich men not the ones that get their wealth by selling their soul to the devil, am talking of the ones that burnt that mid night oil till it went dry. Here, let me give you a simple illustration.

“A man works hard and finally gets a breakthrough to get $1,000,000.

                Another man, let’s say a poor hooligan from the gutters of a ghetto wins a lottery of $1,000,000 too. 

____________

 

The rich man then decides instead of buying cars and building houses yet, why doesn’t he just invest $500,000 in a profitable business, use at most $200,000 for all his children education and keep the remaining $400,000 for anything else that comes up suddenly in the future.

____________  the rich man

____________

The poor man decides to buy car about five(5) buy an expensive domain(house), lavishes the wealth on his children buying all the latest technology gadgets for them saying he is treating them well and suddenly ‘BALM!’, the wealth is all gone and what he is left with is $100 in his account.

___________ the poor man

At that point in time the world might see the first man(rich man) as being selfish and self centered and someone who doesn’t really care to provide material things for his family, and the other man(poor man) would be seen as generous , kind and brilliant, forgetting that in the human race if you account doesn’t count you amount to nothing in any part of the world, because even the great men in bible were all said to be rich and they didn’t spend it foolishly or lavishly.

Given 10 years gap, got back to visiting those men and you find out the invested man wealth has grown and the money spent by the poor man has diminished to threshold. The cars, the second man bought has gone obsolete, the house is now old-fashioned, the material things bought for the children are nowhere to be found. But the first man’s life, his gift to his children (sound education) still lives with them anywhere they go.

Everything in life is temporary only what we have upstairs in our brain really last but the poor man refused to see that, he only cared about now and forgot there is a later, he had no foresight concerning the future.

Money, wealth, is volatile if not handled with care. The fact that you have a billion dollar today doesn’t mean that you would have it tomorrow, it with either increase or decrease, depending on the mentality you have concerning that money.

 

*POWER OF MONEY* By Adam Khoo ( Singapore ‘s youngest millionaire at 26 yrs.)

Some of you may already know that I travel around the region pretty frequently, having to visit and conduct seminars at my offices in Malaysia , Indonesia , Thailand and Suzhou ( China ) . I am in the airport almost every other week so I get to bump into many people who have attended my seminars or have read my books.

Recently, someone came up to me on a plane to KL and looked rather shocked. He asked, ‘How come a millionaire like you is traveling economy?’ My reply was, ‘That’s why I am a millionaire. ‘ He still looked pretty confused.

This again confirms that greatest lie ever told about wealth (which I wrote about in my latest book ‘Secrets of Self-Made Millionaires’). Many people have been brainwashed to think that millionaires have to wear Gucci, Hugo Boss, Rolex, and sit on first class in air travel. This is why so many people never become rich because the moment they earn more money, they think that it is only natural that they spend more, putting them back to square one.

The truth is that most self-made millionaires are frugal and only spend on what is necessary and of value. That is why they are able to accumulate and multiply their wealth so much faster.

Over the last 7 years, I have saved about 80% of my income while today I save only about 60% (because I have my wife, mother in law, 2 maids, 2 kids, etc. to support). Still, it is way above most people who save 10% of their income (if they are lucky).

I refuse to buy a first class ticket or to buy a $300 shirt because I think that it is a complete waste of money. However, I happily pay $1,300 to send my 2-year old daughter to Julia Gabriel Speech and Drama without thinking twice.

When I joined the YEO (Young Entrepreneur’s Orgn) a few years back (YEO is an exclusive club open to those who are under 40 and make over $1m a year in their own business), I discovered that those who were self-made thought like me. Many of them with net worth well over $5 m, travelled economy class and some even drove Toyotas and Nissans, not Audis, Mercs, BMWs..

I noticed that it was only those who never had to work hard to build their own wealth (there were also a few ministers’ and tycoons’ sons in the club) who spent like there was no tomorrow. Somehow, *when you did not have to build everything from scratch, you do not really value money. This is precisely the reason why a family’s wealth (no matter how much) rarely lasts past the third generation*

Thank God my rich dad foresaw this terrible possibility and refused to give me a cent to start my business.

Then some people ask me, ‘What is the point in making so much money if you don’t enjoy it?’ The thing is that I don’t really find happiness in buying branded clothes, jewellery or sitting first class. Even if buying something makes me happy it is only for a while, it does not last.

^Material happiness never lasts, it just gives you a quick fix*. After a while you feel lousy again and have to buy the next thing which you think will make you happy. I always think that if you need material things to make you happy, then you live a pretty sad and unfulfilled life..

Instead, *what makes me happy is*
when I see my children laughing and playing and learning so fast.
What makes me happy is when I see my companies and trainers reaching more and more people every year in so many more countries.

What makes me really happy is when I read all the emails about how my books and seminars have touched and inspired someone’s life.

What makes me really happy is reading all your wonderful posts about how this blog is inspiring you. *This happiness makes me feel really good for a long time, much much more than what a Rolex would do for me.*

I think the point I want to put across is that *happiness must come from doing your life’s work (be it teaching, building homes, designing, trading, winning tournaments etc.)*and the money that comes is only a by-product.

THE POWER OF MONEY

VERY DOWN TO EARTH
VERY PRACTICAL

Should share with the children !

*This article was copied from Adam Khoo*

PASSION ‘developing yourself’

Finding and developing passion is a journey not an event, there are others whose passion is to change the world with that which they dream about, the highest form of passion is that which sees the greater good at its object. “Passion will die without constant injection of new inspiration.” Inspiration is caught better than it is taught”. The fastest way to build and develop your passion in a given area of life is to invest your time, talent and treasure in it. There is no better way to stay inspired than by spending time in the presence of inspirational people. There is a healthy sort of peer pressure that keeps pushing us forward, a symbiotic effect that causes us to become more in the group( even a group of two– you and your mentor) than we could ever become by ourselves. 
Don’t become an apprentice unless one day you are willing to be a mentor yourself.     

Sometimes we have to get up and get involved in order to find inspiration and keep passion alive. ??Which inspires you more – being the only person sitting in a football stadium or being one of the seventy thousand screaming fans who are just as excited as you are about the home team?? Whatever your passion is, get involved in it at a level that is bigger than you are. When you become part of something bigger than you are, you become accountable. You become inspired to do your best, you become motivated not to let others down. And that fuels your passion in ways that can’t be described– it can only be experienced.

IMAGINATION FOR INSPIRATION.
The power of the imagination is one of the greatest untapped resources in the human toolkit, whatever your passion is, turn your imagination loose and let it inspire you to keep working to make your dreams become reality. Remember: it’s your job to fuel your passion and inspiration it the fuel you need.   The enemies of passion will steal every good thing you possess if given the opportunity. “People fall down. Winners get up. Gold medal winners get up fastest” Failure is not falling down, failure is not get back up. When you speak the truth, you speak the truth and forget about it. “if you would lift me up you must be on higher ground”. We become hypocrites trying to look good on the outside while dying on the inside, we have two choices in facing the future we can face it with fear or with faith. 

What you think powerfully impacts who you are. Everything you think has an impact on the person you will become. 

“An expert doesn’t become an expert noting doing what he becomes an expert at”  

Life is a classroom – only those who are willing to be lifelong learners will move ahead of the class. Success does not breed success. It increases our confidence, and keeps the fire burning. “Don’t let other people tell you what you’re capable of. As long as you believe in yourself and work hard to achieve whatever you set your mind to, just keep plugging away. It may not be  up to your timetable, but you can get it done.

|WATCH WHAT YOU FEED YOUR MIND!|

Empower

You want to know why the people who make it make it? You want to know why the people who succeed, succeed? The answer is simple ……. They Don’t Hate

What is your dream? what are you chasing? what are you after?  What do you seek?

Say to yourself it’s possible…… say to your dream it’s possible…… Operate out of a larger vision of yourself.

If you think you have no purpose, then why help that poor kids or save someone’s live? And you ask yourself what is my purpose? Your greatest purpose is what you see yourself as……

Be the change you want to see… we are going through something…. Every passing minutes is another chance to turn it around….

Never believe predictions that do not empower you…. it’s not import how long you live what is important is how you live

You are going to makes some mistake…. If you don’t make any then you haven’t been doing anything, you are going to be criticized when you come to the arena called life but don’t let it pull you down.

Spend each day getting a little wiser than you were before

Destruction

Destruction, intimidation, annihilation, massacre, elimination, eradication.         Everything the light touches on this earth will face this wrath one day; the question remains: are you ready? Faith has lost its value to mankind, patience has lost its essence, humanity has decided to live with its own law, they have desisted for the law. Man is creating his greatest fall; the internet is not safe no more, there is no site on the internet you wouldn’t find a pornographic picture, fear of living the house in any case that you might not return.

Humanities greatest doom! Is to come, where the word peace, faith, love, hope, belief, would be hard to find. Man would loose his essence if his is not ready to turn back no matter how long you go through the wrong road you would never reach your destination,

Build Yourself To Your Dream Person

The world has conceived men and women of great, greater dreams, destiny and aspirations. The world has had people that were driven with the full fuel passion in the beginning but didn’t have it at the ending. Don’t be like them.

Who do you see yourself as? What and where do you see yourself at 10…20 years from the minute you read this message?

Everybody I believe possesses a dream, a vision in them and to achieve that dream in them they have to fight their way through life. Every dream is a seed and for the seed to yield you have to put up with the rain, you have to put up with failure, defeat, pain, loss it goes on, but if you should put up with the rain and wait for the sun to shine upon that seed you bear, I dare you, you would yield a bountiful produce.

Why waste countless hours depending on the success of one man when you can be a success yourself? Why live under the shadow rather than step into the light…. Do not relive yesterday today, don’t cry for yesterday to come back and become today.

FACTS ABOUT LIFE

ABOUT LIFE

In life you will realize that there is a role for everyone you meet. Some will use you and some will teach you, But the ones that are important are those who bring out the best in you…….. They are the rare amazing people who remind you why it’s “WORTH IT

When someone treats you like you are just one of many options, help them narrow their choices by removing yourself from the equation. Sometimes you have to try not to care no matter how much you do because sometimes you can mean almost nothing to someone who means almost everything to you, it’s not pride—– it’s self-respect. Don’t expect to see positive changes in your life if you surround yourself with negative people, know your value, what you have to offer and never settle for anything less than what you deserve.

REMEMBER: Life is not measured by the breathes we take, but by the moments that takes away our breath.

 

 TWELVE [{9}] IMPORTANT GUIDES:

  • When you are alone “mind your thoughts”
  • When you are with friends “mind your tongue”
  • When you are angry “mind your temper”
  • When you are in a group “mind your behavior”
  • When you are in trouble “mind your emotions”
  • When you are successful “mind your ego”

­­­­­­

  • When I got enough confidence “the stage was gone”
  • When I was sure of loosing “I won”
  • When I needed people the most “they left me”

MARKED BY THE SAND OF TIME

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.

FAILURE:images

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.

DETERMINATION

Irrespective of our distance, our colour, our history, our religion, our belief, our mental level, our class, our material level, our background, our social standards, I believe every teenager born into this world has a greater calling, a purpose, a reason for existance. We are not mistakes, we are not accidents of history. Our family, our friends, our classmates, our neighbours are all in our lives now because they are there to build us, to prepare us, to encourage us, to make us know pain, success, failure, gain, anger, hate, regret, happiness, joy, vexation, affliction, irritation, trouble, aggravation, bedevilment, botheration,bugging, disturbance, harassment, importunity, pestering, teasing, annoyance, arrogance, blissfulness, gladness, delightness,exuberation,glory, jubilation, exult, kvelt, triumph, beatitude, blessedness, felicity, importance and oppurtunity.

     Don’t look at yourself differently, you have what past great men and women had, don’t have self hate for yourself. God speaking in the bible from the book of jeremiah 29:11 “For i know the thought i have towards you the thought of good and not of evil to give you an expected end(a future and a hope).

Nothing can deter, discourage, dissuade or inhibit a determined soul. Our sow purpose on this earth is to put an end to humanities’s suffering not to add to it. Everybody has chance to make a change. Think great and you will be great, think rich and you will be rich , think small you will be small, think poor you will be poor, no matter how small the body is the mind is much more bigger and mightier. Dont dwell on passed failures it will only prevent future sucess but learn from it, don’t settle for anything less–aim higher, higher than the body believs it can achieve but i dare you the mind can. Never be static, if you can’t run walk, if you can’t walk crawl, if you can’t crawl roll but make sure you are moving, the world is waiting for YOU.

TAKE HOLD OF YOUR PURPOSE

Is it not enough? We have spent countless of hours on television watching series upon series of different movies, playing video games and on the internet doing irrelevant things forgetting we have a world to change, a world to save and the earth (world) is crying to us calling out to all teenagers saying change me!!. We are the future of the morrow ; we believe we are the light of the world but we couldn’t glow if our switch weren’t turn on, I believe that within us lies untapped potentials , in our DNA we possess the genes of greatness, in us are locked great pastors, author, philanthropist, musicians, scientist, engineers, political leaders, life changers, men and women of immeasurable change, thing that world change the world, these potentials would still remain untapped until we are ready to act on them, until we are ready to bring it forth to the world.

 

The more you waste time the more other teenagers die the more you get bloods on your hands. One day we would all face God either His wrath or His blessing, what are you going to tell him you fulfilled on earth? Every day you wake up constantly you keep hearing that a teenager lost his/her life “-GUILT- “ you can’t save everybody but say the ones you can, you hold generations upon generation on your hand, you have over a trillion destiny tied to you if you fail you have failed generations without your knowledge. Life is like a chain that has no end, life is like a tree with so many branches, you can’t afford to loose it like that “ TAKE HOLD OF YOUR PURPOSE”.

 

It feels good to belong, to wear the latest shoes use the latest phones, wear the latest clothes, and carry the latest hand-bags. But is that really it? ——- is that what you were meant for?You mean more than you think to the whole world, you owe your future a great personality. What you wear now, do now and the friends you keep now may or will never be there forever.What destroys a man is not that which is far from him but that which is closest to him. I have heard of teenagers that loosed their values because of the kind of friends they keep most of them didn’t know, they had friend in disguise, some people would refer to them as “frienemy”

 

                        Unlimited we are blessing, every one of us are engraced to be something extraordinary, we are not normal we are abnormal(above normal). ”THE WHOLE WORLD IS WAITING FOR YOU”
