Get out and work hard, there is not fast route to riches or wealth or success or anything you are seeking… if there was a faster way, trust me it would kill you!!!


GET UP AND GET OUT NOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!



The human race …… Why is it called the human race?……. Why are we called a race?? Is that a scientific name or is that what we are actually doing in life here on earth?

Right from birth every human being has be on the run, every human has been running, running towards something or from something ( but its better you run towards something, it qualifies the fact that you have a purpose). And in this race if you dare slack back, if you are drooping or become floppy you are going to loose before you even get to the middle of the track.

Alright, Let me give an instance……. When you were about to be formed in your mother’s womb…. When there was an intercourse from both your parents in any way, married or unmarried…. The moment your dad released the spermatozoa, I bet you were running towards the ovary ( even if you weren’t a full life form yet) … towards your moms egg to fertilize it… cause for every sperm released millions of life forces are on the run, they are on the run towards one goal to fertilize the egg….and the moment one reaches or any number resulting to multiply children at once, the rest loose, the rest dies off, that’s life for you… Most people forget that they have been running from the time they were about to be born… when they come into this world and see life when the see challenges and the find difficult situations they do what QUIT…. They get tired, they lose hope, the lose bearing, meaning, essence, focus, vision, THEY GIVE UP.

When running don’t you ever stop, I repeat don’t you ever stop or else you wouldn’t make it to the finish line before the time is up!!… Everybody is racing , everyone wants that position you have now, and if you dare stop, slack or get lazy, somebody somewhere would catch up with you and collect it from you.

Are you a dead body? then why aren’t you running, why did you choose to give up and start self-pitying yourself hoping the world would look at your face and see how wounded you are and give you back the space you just lost when you ought to change your shoes and keep on running The only body that can’t race, that can’t run is the dead body and I believe you reading this means not dead.,. I once read a quote that said: if the race gets harder change your shoe. That’s it – don’t ever stop running EVER!! Keep on running, and run alone you’ll cover more grounds… don’t talk while running ( keeping unnecessary friends),….you can never find Olympic racers talking to themselves on the track while running… NO!! Everybody is focused, Every one of them wants to get to that finish line …. They want to win the race.

That’s it … the human life is race… you either run or get out the way!!!


Why am I alive? Why am I able to breathe today? Why didn’t I die like most of my mates did?

Big question…??!!

Yeah, you are alive because no matter how many errors you’ve made in the past God still cares for you, He still has a plan installed for you. Yes, I know you get scared, confused and worried sometimes, at times you feeling like you are disappointing everybody, like you’ll never live to your fullest potential. You are scared, but you know what… it’s ok to be scared sometimes…. It shows you are making progress, it shows you aren’t stuck or confined to a certain level or position.

But here’s another issue about fear SIN. Sin brings doubt, it ignites fear, it makes you feel like after some certain progress you just fall back to the ground to start afresh. It’s one thing being successful and it’s another being successful the RIGHT WAY. The quantity of your success doesn’t count or matter or mean anything at all if it has no good quality.

I once heard somewhere in a motivational message that the hardest journey you’ll ever make in this life is the one you make alone, cause trust me, you’ll always start with a huge/great multitude of friends that would say they would be with you every step of the way… but the truth is everybody you see alone the road, in the park, on the bus or where ever are going through also have issues they are trying to overcome, though some are greater than the others the world may say, but none is truly the greatest{No issue is truly greater than another}.

So you ask why are you still alive today? well, the answer is simple : Jeremiah 29:11 says it all “ FOR I KNOW THE THOUGHTS I THINK TOWARDS YOU, SAITH THE LORD, THOUGHTS OF GOOD AND NOT OF EVIL TO GIVE YOU AN EXPECTED END”……. Its really funny though, when God has promised us this, we still go about every day of our lives carrying long faces, showing the whole world we have problems, being scared, telling them how fragile we are at the moment, if you let your enemies see your weakness, they won’t pity you!! they will strike harder to make sure you fall completely. But please remember this; it doesn’t matter how many times you’ve felt forgotten, ignored, self-hated, loved less, despised, where you are now isn’t where you will be forever, your current location isn’t meant to be permanent residential area  for you. You are just going through a phase now so that someday, one day, tomorrow you will also have a story to tell, you will also tell somebody I was there before and I made it out, so cheer up and don’t wallow and drown in your own tears – tomorrow is brighter than you can ever imagine. But you have to do one thing……………………………………………..RUNNNNN!!!!!!!

Don’t stick to the status quo

There is something with the status quo that is literally intoxication, you don’t want to move you want to put things at risk. Change is hard change is scary I know but is that how much you want to limit yourself. For you to change you must face the terror of change you must accept that you must fail, because everybody else is scared of doing a thing, if ever body else is scared of crossing the line, don’t hange with them, don’t stop where they stop You, must believe that no one else is better at building a life that suits you more than yourself.


The first thing a human does when he/she sees someone new is looking at appearance. People judge other by their appearance before really getting to know them well.

There is a famous quote that goes “you are addressed by the way you dress”……. And this quote speaks the truth, your appearance makes other think what they think of you.

For sample, when you see someone passing by with a white overflowing gown and a stetoscope hung around his neck, you could tell that person is a medical practisional, no one really needs to tell you that.


There are two (2) dressing methods;

  • Decent
  • Indecent

Sagging, chains round your neck and hand, tattoos all over your body, putting on shoes without completely tying the shoe laces well doesn’t symbolize a decently dress person. Most teenagers classify these dressings as the 21st century dressing where we have the bump short, strapless feminine shirts, so tight pencils trousers. Wearing these things may make you look cool, feel on top of the world…but it’s not going to keep you on top of the world forever. Every minute that passes by designers bring out new styles and designs. Most of the rapes that girl are victim of doesn’t always be the guys fault, percentage of it is on the girl, her appearance, the way she carries herself. Indecent dressing will not only destroy you, it could destroy those around you. – imagine being a church service while the preacher is giving a sermon, you turn to your side and discover a girl sitting close to you with a slim hand-opened shoulder shirt and made her breast partially open, Damn! Through out the rest of that service I bet you wouldn’t be comfortable –. But that’s what the world says is invoked now, the 21st century swagger

Decent dressing doesn’t just only make you look responsible, it makes you feel comfortable. A well dressed person who approaches someone for help would not easily be turned away. Decent dressing identifies you, it brings respect, it also has a swagger of its own. You don’t need to put your trousers below your waist or put chains round your neck like you are a dog or wear deadly tight skinny jeans that would reap in half it you wide you legs to feel in the 21st century fashion show.

Improve Yourself

Just because you can’t do something, it doesn’t mean you can’t do anything. You will receive from the world lots and lots of criticism.

Being scared doesn’t mean you are weak, being scared doesn’t make you a bad person….. In fact being scared proves that you are alive, that you are moving, that you are learning, that you are becoming a better person than you were yesterday.


  1. BUILD UP YOUR MENTALITY RACK: At least every month you have to finish about just one book. There’s a quote I once read somewhere that says; Try to learn something about everything and everything about something. This in general is telling you to learn everything about everything. Knowledge is power, knowledge puts you ahead. Let me give an instance:

In a class for example there is a smart and intelligent kid that answers all the questions in Chemistry, Physics, Math, English etc , and on the other hand there is another kid that doesn’t answer at all, he’s not bright academically, he does poorly in his test – One day the Intelligent kid is on the road to the airport with his mom to pick up a family member that is coming to visit them when suddenly they have a flat tyre, in this situation there was nobody around that could help them at that moment so the intelligent kid mom told him to change their tyre and his response was I can’t , his mom askes why? And he says I don’t know how to. After standing there for some while his other class mate the one considered “to be dul” passes by when he discovered his well known by teachers’ intelligent class mate being stranded with his mom in the middle of the road, he comes down asked what was wrong, when he is told their predicament he offered to help and he finally changes the tyre for them.

Now, though the smart one was the mighty one in the classroom of school, outside the classroom that day he discovered he was not too smart. Everybody has something to offer if they are given the opportunity to, because the dull boy couldn’t answer few questions in the classroom doesn’t mean he is dull. Whatever it is that you know try to know everything about it… study, grind on that thing, search every nuke and cranny to discover every secret of that thing.

  1. DON’T QUIT AT YOUR FIRST FAILURE: Nobody really does anything new for the first time without practising and is expected to come out flying. The fact you didn’t get your way the first time you did something doesn’t mean you cannot be good at that thing, because you got a public disgrace the first time you did something new doesn’t mean you have to go home and lock yourself away in your closet NO!.. it’s a sign that screams KEEP MOVING YOU ARE GETTING SOMEWHERE; in everything there are two things that are always by it side – failure and success – now it depends on which one you choose to pick or which one you try to get. But the fact that you failed at your first attempt doesn’t mean you are a told looser. Get up, dust yourself and get back in front of the line. Never give up regardless of how challenging the road may be.
  • CHANGE YOU THINKING FACULTY: What you think is what you become, what you mind conceive is what you get as result. Change the way you think. Think I will succeed not I am scared of failing. If you are doing anything for anybody then you have not started living yet. When you are set for an exam don’t say “what if I fail” say “when I succeed I will…” Don’t limit yourself with your mind with low self-esteemed thoughts. Remember, your mind is limitless, it never stops growing… so don’t try to stuck yourself in one dogma; explore, discover, learn. Don’t say oh! God! I don’t think I’m gonna make it, instead say God! I’m gonna make it. Whatever it is you say, think and believe consistently there is a 95% chance of you getting it

So, try improving yourself not decreasing and destroying yourself



In the recent years, a child capacity has been judge by their academic performance. Parents have rebuked their children because of low quality result, Teachers have made students competitors not learner, making them yearn in this rat race all because the want to get an “A”.

If you judge a fish by its inability to climb a tree, it would live the rest of its life thinking it is stupid. Homicidal attempts, suicide, mental and psychological illness has been results all because someone couldn’t do well in a test and exam. School has forgotten that it was meant to educate the future not dictate the future. Hopes and dreams has been destroyed through the schooling system, Teachers have made some students believe that they can never amount to anything in their life no matter how hard they try. They’ve judged students to be at the level of an ordinary factory worker.

I have heard stories and seen people who have been limited in life because of low grades in a test or an exam. I have heard of someone who fainted because he was too scared to look at his result. Schooling has resulted to migraine, unhealthy sleeping habit because you want to stay up night, read and make sure you don’t fail a class. Schooling has made young people live there dreams and pursue the dreams their parents have for them.

Going to school, having a Ph.D., M.Sc. , Etc doesn’t guarantee you success. I’ve heard about some people who ready medicine in school and turned out to be fashion designers, people who read law and turned out to hair styles. As old as school is, before it came into existing people were successful. The volume of your note book doesn’t determine how intelligent you are.  Here’s a simple advice; Don’t run after the A’s in school- run after the D’s (dreams) in education.

Schooling is not education, a lot of people confuse that. Schooling only happens in school where there a rules for everything, when to go out, how to go out, how long you go out, when you eat, when you sleep etc . But on the other hand, Education takes place anywhere at home, at the park, with friends, with family, in the church even in the dream.

As young teenagers it easy to get stressed up with school work, I meant the project, the test, the exams and I know no one would want to disappoint; but the question is – are you really in school to learn or are you in school just to keep the A’s coming and keep changing classes every new section?

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.


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 loose 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.



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!!!!!



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.



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“.


*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.

Should share with the children !

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.

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.
