Who is writing your story? (…you or someone else?)

 

Who is writing your story? Is it your dad, your mum, your brother, your sister, your aunt, your uncle, your cousin, is it circumstances that is writing your story, is it the economy that’s writing your story, is it your country, your religion, your social standards, your financial standards or is it YOU!

B I G   Q U E S T I O N,  H U H?!!

Do you let people or conditions judge you, do you let it orchestrate your future. If somebody is forcing you to hold a pen to write the things that you don’t like, that is a life lost, that is how you die before you ever have a chance to live.

Are you the head of your own life, are you leading your life. Are you living through the mouth of people(what they say to you and about you) or are you living based on your rules and the rules given to you by God to govern your life and style.

Are you trying to live a life somebody wants for you? Are you living to please someone-maybe your mom or dad? When you think about these questions what is/are your response. Act as if what you do matters because it does, even if it doesn’t show any results now, it would sooner or later come up in the future. Even if nobody else believes in you, I want you to believe in yourself.  Every step you take-make it count for something in your life, make sure you get something out of it, either a lesson or victory.

Recreate your mind asses yourself, accept your flaws, learn from you mistakes, don’t let people always tell you what not to and what to do, don’t let them get into your head and control your whole system. Remember , your dreams tell you who you are , they tell you who you are trying to be, spend time with them, Hours, Days, let them know you are around so that they can lead you, direct you. Ultimately anything that monopolizes your mind will become you.

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?

 

In pursuit of purpose

Hardwork works, working really hard is what successful people do. Nothing exist for itself, everything is related to something else. It’s not how much you have it’s what you do with what you have. Early to bed, early to rise, work like hell and don’t forget to rest. The world needs you and the purpose for which you were born, purpose cannot be fulfilled in isolation. Your purpose is designed to affect generations to come negatively or positively. God’s purpose is not hindered by your past, no matter what you might have done wrong or where you might have gone wrong, you will still have the opportunity to fulfill His purpose in your life. Nothing you have done can cancel His (God’s) purpose. No matter how your life started or how bad it has been, you are not a mistake.

What is it that gives your life a sense of purpose?

What is the meaning of your life?

Know this; for every minute you spend playing, someone else is out there in the world getting smarter, reading harder, gaining more knowledge, winning and build his self up to becoming a better person. Grind why others sleep, don’t do what they do, don’t go where they go.

Until you are willing to live your comfort zone, until you are willing to take chances, to takes risk, every day you wake up will be the same, the same thinking method, the same food, the same job, the same friends. Until you discover your purpose of living, every day you wake up would be like yesterday. Don’t stay in that comfort zone just because you have everything that makes you comfortable at that moment. The most dangerous thing to do in life is not to do anything at all. It’s okay to worry, it’s okay to feel like you’re losing, to feel like a failure, it proves you are human, it means you are moving, you are trying, you are learning something new. Don’t let your environment judge you, don’t let people predict your future for you, Yes! They have the right to speak, but choose what you take into your soul and let the rest live through the other ear.

Many times we ask our self why  are we living?  The answer is this; if you don’t wake up every day with much enthusiasm then you haven’t really found your sense of living. If you hate the sun rise, if you hate the noise of early morning traffic and you just want to remain in bed then you are just existing not really living, you are dead but not yet buried.

Love yourself don’t complain; I’m too short, I’m too fat, I’m too this, I’m too much of that, your first step to success is self-romance(loving yourself and all that you are). If you hate who you are, you can never become the person you want to be. You don’t need a new body, you don’t need a new family, a new country or planet, you just need a new mind set, you need a new believe system.

Until you are willing to make sacrifices, until you are willing to stay up late, until you are willing to choose books over phones, bible over novels, until you are willing to go the extra mile, you cannot move from here to there, I repeat you cannot move from here to there. Life is not easy, no one said it ever would be, so don’t ever take on anything in life easy. You can’t imagine yourself driving  a Lamborghini in your sitting room and the next thing you hear is someone pulling off at your house and giving you key to a Lamborghini, Life is not a fairy tale, it’s not a happily ever after movie. To buy that jet, that car, that house or to even have that happy family you have to work, work, work. No one said it would be easy, No! Get into the arena of life, get beaten up and thrown on the ground so that you will learn how to stand up and fight, get stumble upon so that you will learn from your mistake and at that moment you know you are living not just existing. STEP OUT OF YOUR COMFORT ZONE!!!!!

PURSUIT YOUR PURPOSE.

 

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 Letter Every Teenager Wants To Write To Their Parents

If we had our chance we would want to tell our parents this…….

Dear Dad/Mum,

There is a point in our life that we feel like being under the spotlight, that we want to be seen and heard by the world, that we want our talents to be appreciated and there are also times we want to hide and remain in darkness for the rest of our lives.

                Parents do complain that we (teenagers) spend countless hours on our mobile phones and laptops, they say that we are squandering our time – that wouldn’t make us productive, but in – some ways they’re right and some ways wrong (depends on personal point of view). The chances of being productive online are high but also the types of non – developmental materials online are also high. Life is Ironic. You can’t put a rotten tomatoes among good tomatoes and expect it to be better and healthy like the other tomatoes it won’t instead it would contaminate the good ones around and that’s how it the contamination would spread to contaminate the rest of the tomatoes but you can also put a good tomatoes in the mist of the bad one in anticipation for the good and freshness of that tomatoes spread and affect the other bad tomatoes No! that one good one would get contaminated/spoilt by the other bad ones faster, within a snap. No matter how you put the bad tomatoes it always contaminates the good ones, it is inevitable.

                We go online, we want to be responsible, we want to turn out great but sites online have been contaminated by these bad tomatoes, Snapchat has been filled with nudity, Facebook has been filled with nudity pages, Instagram, Twitter and there likes.

                You don’t judge us (teenagers) from afar, you don’t stand at the foot of a mountain to determine how many steps it would take you to climb to its peak. I’m not saying that we would disrespect and talk back to you (parents) because you’ve never lived a 21st Century teenagers’ life before No, of cause you should know better than us, but what I’m saying simply is this: When we miss our steps pulls us back, When we fall pick us up and dust our body, Care, Carter and Love us because if you should lose the teenagers of today there is no future for tomorrow. TRY BEING A 21st CENTURY TEENAGER AND YOU WOULD SEE HOW DIFFICULT IT IS GROWING UP.   

Your’s Faithfully                                                                                                                               Teenagers of Tomorrow

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.

 

Iphone Vs Bible

A preacher once said “Nobody has the right to hear the gospel twice until everybody has had it once” but we hear sermon upon sermon and we still remain how we were last week, last month and even last year, they plead with us to carry out bible to church… we see it as a heavy material but yet we have the strength to carry an Iphone that far far far more compared to the bible but we don’t find it as heavy still we find it is difficult to carry what is so much less than that Iphone we wield in our hands, pockets or bags.

             vs                  

DISABILITIES CAN’T STOP YOU!!!

Some people may be blind, some cripple, some dumb and others deaf, but it doesn’t  mean that they are mistakes, it doesn’t mean that they are freaks of nature. Physical disabilities doesn’t mean you are really disable but mentally disabilities clearly states that. Some people are fully complete, they can walk, talk, hear, see but yet they are mentally handicapped. If you should be in a normal human state(not disabled by any means) and have done nothing productive  then you are not different from a handicapped person.

Disabilities doesn’t define us, it doesn’t stop us from being who we are meant to be.  There was a story I read about a girl called Patti, she was handicapped, I’ll share the story with you;

At a young and tender age, Patti Wilson was told by her doctor that she was an epileptic. Her father, Jim Wilson, is a morning jogger. One day she smiled through her teenage braces and said, “Daddy what I’d really love to do is run with you every day, but I’m afraid I’ll have a seizure.”

Her father told her, “If you do, I know how to handle it so let’s start running!”

That’s just what they did every day. It was a wonderful experience for them to share and there were no seizures at all while she was running. After a few weeks, she told her father, “Daddy, what I’d really love to do is break the world’s long-distance running record for women.”

Her father checked the Guinness Book of World Records and found that the farthest any woman had run was 80 miles. As a freshman in high school, Patti announced, “I’m going to run from Orange County up to San Francisco.” (A distance of 400 miles.) “As a sophomore,” she went on, “I’m going to run to Portland, Oregon.” (Over 1,500 miles.) “As a junior I’ll run to St. Louis. (About 2,000 miles.) “As a senior I’ll run to the White House.” (More than 3,000 miles away.)

In view of her handicap, Patti was as ambitious as she was enthusiastic, but she said she looked at the handicap of being an epileptic as simply “an inconvenience.” She focused not on what she had lost, but on what she had left.

That year she completed her run to San Francisco wearing a T-shirt that read, “I Love Epileptics.” Her dad ran every mile at her side, and her mom, a nurse, followed in a motor home behind them in case anything went wrong.

In her sophomore year Patti’s classmates got behind her. They built a giant poster that read, “Run, Patti, Run!” (This has since become her motto and the title of a book she has written.) On her second marathon, en route to Portland, she fractured a bone in her foot. A doctor told her she had to stop her run. He said, “I’ve got to put a cast on your ankle so that you don’t sustain permanent damage.”

“Doc, you don’t understand,’ she said. “This isn’t just a whim of mine, it’s a magnificent obsession! I’m not just doing it for me, I’m doing it to break the chains on the brains that limit so many others. Isn’t there a way I can keep running?” He gave her one option. He could wrap it in adhesive instead of putting it in a cast. He warned her that it would be

incredibly painful, and he told her, “It will blister.” She told the doctor to wrap it up.

She finished the run to Portland, completing her last mile with the governor of Oregon. You may have seen the headlines: “Super Runner, Patti Wilson Ends Marathon For Epilepsy On Her 17th Birthday.”

After four months of almost continuous running from the West Coast to the East Coast, Patti arrived in Washington and shook the hand of the President of the United States. She told him, “I wanted people to know that epileptics are normal human beings with normal lives.”

 

You were created to be created in God’s creation, you are supposed to make something unique, something the world has never seen before, pick up something, anything and do it perfectly, do it with all your heart ”if you only do what you can do you can never be more than you are“.

|EVERYBODY IS WAITING FOR|

*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.

*Save this message to read it from time to time*

Life’s Point of View

Inspirational, motivational…. a well drafted speech from Dr. Benjamin Carson…….

Dr. Ben Carson (Retired world renowned neurosurgeon, and Republican Presidential Aspirant) wrote this beautiful piece.
Read and be blessed.
Sometimes you are unsatisfied with your life, while many people in this world are dreaming of living your life.
A child on a farm sees a plane fly overhead and dreams of flying. But, a pilot on the plane sees the farmhouse and dreams of returning home. That’s life!! Enjoy yours.
If wealth is the secret to happiness, then the rich should be dancing on the streets. But only poor kids do that.
If power ensures security, then officials should walk unguarded. But those who live simply, sleep soundly.
If beauty and fame bring ideal relationships, then celebrities should have the best marriages. But those who live simply, walk humbly and love genuinely!
All good will come back to you!!!
Man asks, “Where was God when Myles Munroe, wife and his associates were killed in a crash? He answers, “The same place I
sat when John the Baptist my servant was beheaded. When Stephen my servant was stoned to death. When Paul my servant was murdered in Rome. The same place I sat when my only Son was brutally crucified, wounded, bruised and killed. I
have not moved from my position.”
I am the same. It is not the means of exit from earth that matters but the
destination. Live simply. It’s all about God!!
I love this one: If someone asks about your educational background, proclaim boldly that: Church is my college. Heaven is my university. Father God is my counselor. Jesus is my principal. Holy Spirit is my teacher. Angels are my classmates. Bible is my textbook. Temptations are my exams. Overcoming Satan is my hobby. Winning souls for God is my assignment. Receiving eternity is my degree. Praise and Worship are my slogan.

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.

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

Supernova “chapter 5”

Your greatest moment is now

Don’t wait till later cause later may become never

Life will never produce results for you on credit; So many people talking about how they want a better life, but wake up every day and do nothing about it. You cannot keep on acting the same way, expecting to get a different life; The greatest thoughts or words will never produce results without action; Actions make dreams come true! You will never catch your dreams by justifying excuses and making them count. Don’t make yourself feel good about doing nothing.

Everything you are or ever will be is entirely up to you. If you want things to be different in the future, you must make things different in the present; your life is not a dress rehearsal for something else; this is the real thing, the game is on and time is passing. All of your decisions and in-decisions, your actions and in-actions, have added up to create the life you are living at this very minute. It’s time to stop blaming circumstances and people for holding your life back! Stop complaining about the things that you aren’t willing to change, Where you are today is an inside job; It’s time to get out of that victim mind-set and stop feeling sorry for yourself. Free yourself from excuses; You are responsible for your own life, So start taking ownership. Change don’t just happen; Success doesn’t happen overnight, you have to work to make that change…

DON’T DEFEAT YOURSELF

Don’t Defeat Yourself!

 

There are many uncertainties in life, but you are not one. So stop allowing what happened to you control what’s left of you; Stop allowing what happened in you past control your future. Nothing can hold you back without your permission; Your past can either prepare you for a better tomorrow or convince you one doesn’t exist; You are not your past unless you choose to be. Don’t let the things of your past have power over your life. The pains, hurts and disappointment of your past becomes powerless once you decide to let go, Holding on to things that we are supposed to let go of, just keeps our lives in a season that we are no longer supposed to be in. The one thing you are holding on to could be that one thing that’s holding you back! It’s time to let go of the pains, let go of the hurts, let go of the disappointments. Sometimes it takes losing your “everything” just to show you it was NOTHING you needed. Don’t let what you are going through take your life. There is so much more to you than what’s trying to break you. Bad chapters can still create a story that ends well. Being a good person doesn’t always mean you don’t do wrong, Being a good person doesn’t mean you are perfect. It means you strive each day to do right even in the face of wrong. . .You can live a victorious life once you stop defeating yourself; You can live a successful life once you let go of your past; Having a negative outlook on life won’t get you positive results. You can’t stay stuck on a “chapter” trying to get everybody on the same page. That’s how you will never finish the story. It’s not over until you win!

 

RELEASE YOURSELF

While there may have been many times when we were wronged, there may have been many more times when we spent too long grieving over the hurts instead of moving beyond them. Without forgiveness your life will always be a reflection of the hurt and pain people bring to you…the more you forgive, the more love can grow in your heart, Its ok to feel hurt sometimes, its ok to feel the pains of their actions or inaction, but listen up, you are responsible for how long you choose to let what hurt you hunt you…You are responsible for how long you choose to let what hurt you break you.. Most times, we cannot undo what has already been done, so why handcuff yourself to a memory that brings you so much pain, why hold on to the hurt when you can release yourself from the pain. The one thing you are holding on to could be the one thing that’s holding your life back! its time to release yourself!! Forgiveness is for you not them, Holding a grudge keeps your life in their hands, Holding a grudge gives them control over you. You got to free yourself today. Holding on to things that we are supposed to let go of, just keeps our lives in a season that we are no longer supposed to be in. Forgiveness is your gift to them.

 

YOU TOO CAN SUCCEED

 

Every teenager has a seed of success planted in him or her, it just takes a little time to cultivate it and behold it bear fruit which is now called success. I actually decided to take on a task at the age of 14 (fourteen) when I started writing this book. I was ready to face those challenges that would bump into my way. Am not different from you and you’re not different from me, we all can achieve success if we are ready to work towards achieving it.

YOU needto stop measuring your old achievement with your new one. Don’t judge by what you did yesterday with what you are doing today.

Success must not always be in  the realm of passing exams  and sort of ———– the true success am trying to refer to here is attaining your dream. It takes a man to think twice and ask once for true success to be achieved.

 

Let go of past failures.

Never hold onto your mistakes or failures you made in your pas, turn of the light of the past and put on the light of the future—— because ahead of you lies greater opportunities than you just passed.

We’re all given the opportunity to fail because without failure we’ll never know where we are right or wrong.

Never hold on to grouches from the past, let tomorrow page be left unturned and lets set out for a better adventure in the future.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

TO MAKE IT TAKE IT.

 

One of another important way to make it in life is to take it. In this sense you make take up whatever comes your way. Upon yourself always go on the quest for knowledge and power.

 

NOTHING UNDER THE SUN IS NEW

Nothing under the sun is new, if you feel things under the sun is new then you must be new under the sun.

These current situations you are passing through now, someone somewhere has already been through similar or possibly the same situation before. Do you feel you’re dull academically or whatever crap you think of yourself? Do you are not up to the standard your parents are expecting you to be? You may have just bumped into a new situation but someone else has gone into similar thing and come outsuccessfully. Everybody am sure must have encountered some problems somehow, but not everybody came out of their situation. Stop locking yourself up ——— stop eating up yourself inside, these things can kill you. The current situation you’re in now is to prepare you and get you ready for what’s awaiting you, remember gold can never show its purest form until it is refined with HIGH HEAT, you deserve the best.

 

Self-silence to hard situation could drain out the life in you, seek for help where you can!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

AWAKEN THE GREAT SPIRIT IN YOU!!

 

Within us all lies the spirit of greatness, everybody on the surface of the earth possesses that spirit, we are just left to awaken it ourselves.

success is not a position, it is not a junction in life; success lives in us all”

                                                                                ———Egwuatu David .A.

We’re all given  a brain, hands and life by God but we are to fed for ourselves. If we want to succeed. Lies within us teens AN UNTAPPED POTENTIAL waiting to be unleashed to the whole world. You’ve been conceived with that spirit in you, WAKE IT!

Take hold of your dream

“DON’T LET GO OF YOUR DREAM”

Reaching your dream requires a process – it takes time, persistence, patience. In this stage we discover the importance of holding tightly to your dream and discover how to enjoy he process, even if it takes a long time and leads you through an uncharted course that requires your total faith and commitment.

The secret to discovering your destiny is find something you enjoy doing so much that you would be willing to do it for free.

Five things you must do to release wills in your life

  1. Don’t Despise Small Things.

Don’t be bias. Faithfulness with small things bring huge rewards no matter how little you may start, try to give it your best and you might just end up in where you’ve always dreamt of being.

 

  1. Don’t Wait for Big Moments.

Big moments don’t come to people who wait for big moments. Big moments comes out of faithfulness in little things, insignificant moment of doing routine, menial things that are non – glamorous and not really exciting. The big moment comes out of being faithful with little things.

 

  1. Help people.

Why always be self-protective of yourself alone? Don’t you have people around you who could use a little or more help from you? It doesn’t matter your age, you could be helping hand to someone. “Generosity does not come from wealth; but from the heart”. You  must not wait to become rich  before you could help people, you could start now at your younger age.

 

  1. Do Your Best – and Then Some.

Can people trust you when they turn their back and walk away and never wonder if you’re going to do the job right? If you help people with their dream, you will surely discover yours.

 

  1. When One Good Door Opens, Walk Through It.

You know what you want! You know what you seek! You know what you deserve! No one else, except you!

 

STEP-OUT!

 

Are you tired of hiding in shadows? Stop hiding your potentials.

 

“A person that always hides his/her potentials never comes out to their fullest capacity”

Success is an old ABC- Ability, Breaks and Courage.

                           –Charles Luck man

What would you do if you know you would never fail; what would you do if you were guaranteed success. Too many tailor their lives according to what the majority says is possible, they dare to reach the limits the world around them agree is achievable. I challenge you today, to break out from the norm, break out from the routines, step into your possibilities and be who God has called you to be…Before you can really see a change in your life, you got to start from the inside out: Everything you see on the outside has a root somewhere on the inside, starting from inside means you got to develop yourself, it means you got to stretch yourself, it means you have got to do more: and doing more means you can’t remain in your comfort zone. You have got to come out and face new challenges. Personal development gives you the capacity to attract the right things into your life. The more you develop yourself, the greater your capacity for achieving an all-round success. To really develop yourself, you must develop the quality of your thoughts. Your life will always move in the direction of your prevailing thoughts as such, the quality of your life can never be better than the quality of your thoughts. How successful do you want to become? How wealthy do you want to become? Think possibility not impossibility. Think success not failure; for a man is as he thinks.  As you develop the quality of your thoughts, you will also develop the quality of your life, the quality of your relationships, the quality of your finances….. You have been in the closet far too long, Its time to get a hold of your life, it’s time to move beyond the limits, It’s time to breakout, step out and be who you were destined to be. It’s not over until you win.

NOT TOO YOUNG TO SHAKE THE EARTH

 

Who are you actually? Are you just another teen sent to cause population in this planet, ARISTOTLE SAID” give me a place to stand and I will move the earth”. If a man at his old age could make such statement, how much you that have a very long time to move the earth before you live it. Let’s take a look into the secular world and see  bit of teens that are actually making or made a difference; Michael Jackson started singing at age 9 and at 16 he was world hit. Justin Bieber, Jaden Smith, Austin Mahone, Rachael Fox, Lorde, Flynn Mcgarry, Jazz jenings, Joshua Wong and their likes. You can also be listed among great teens if you are ready to work-hard towards it.

“Obstacles can’t stop you, problems can’t stop you, most of all other people can’t stop you. Only you can stop you”

                                                     —-J. Gitomer.

  “The big secret in life is that there is no big secret. Whatever is your goal you can get it if you’re willing to work”

—–Oprah Winfrey.

 

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.
