Life has a way of pulling a fast one on us. Things happen that you didn't expect and if you are not careful, you might end up being depressed. But guess what, in every bad situation, there is always something positive to embrace. You just need to look long and hard enough and you will see it. In the words of Laura Staley, “Sometimes life events break your heart. Even as you grieve, allow light to seep through the cracks, uplift, and illuminate a healing. Just like baby turtles emerge from the cracking of shells, new life can burst forth. Clear away all broken belongings as a metaphorical pathway fresh, loving experiences in uncharted waters.”
"What you don't use you eventually Lose" Think about it. If you decided to sit still (like a statue) in one position for just one hour, what would happen to you behind and your legs? You start getting those "needles" that prick you. Why, because at that point your legs and butt are so uncomfortable they are screaming for help - relief. They need to be exercised a bit so that the blood can flow through the veins properly. This goes for very muscle you have in your body; they all need to be exercised regualrly, otherwise you end up losing what you don't use. The unused part becomes weak and dysfunctional until eventually, you lose it. That's why people go through physiotheraphy so they can re-train their muscles to function properly again expecially after an accident. The same case applies to the brain. It is a muscle too that needs constant exercises by providing it with enough mental exercises. If you do not exercise your brain, it starts screaming for help and when you don't listen...

Ever wanted to do something so much because deep down your heart you know it is a God-given agenda you are propagating, only to be met with obstacles from every corner of your life, and sometimes from the least unexpected persons? Well, me too. Then I landed upon this powerful message by the famous televangelist, Joel Osteen.... “I want to talk to you today about redeeming the time. Time is one of the most valuable commodities that we have. It is more valuable than money. You can make more money but you cannot make more time. Queen Elizabeth said on her deathbed, “I would give my entire kingdom for just one more day” When you woke up this morning, God gave you a present; it is called today. With that gift comes a responsibility. The scripture tells us to redeem the time (Ephesians 5:16). That simply means don’t let it go to waste, don’t live this day unfocused, unhappy, negative, defeated. Make the most of each day. Things may not be perfect, you may have some obstacles but you can... [Continue reading]
"A winner is someone who recognizes his God-given talents, works his tail off to develop them into skills, and uses these skills to accomplish his goals" ~ Larry Bird. The problem is, like Mark Twain said, "We are always more anxious to be distinguished for a talent which we do not possess, than to be praised for the fifteen which we do posses". Remember, "Everyone has talent. What is rare is the courage to follow the talent to the dark place where it leads ~ Erica Mann Jong
"Seems to me that there is a fine line between insanity and dedication…I call that line commitment." ― Jeremy Aldana
Everyone of us has a dream or a goal. But do you ever wonder why not everyone of us achieves that goal? The key to achieving any dream you have in life is to go out and work your dream. No dream will ever come to pass unless you work towards making sure it does. Want to see your dream coming true? Make a plan and work that plan every day until you realize your dream.
There is no reward for finishing life first. However, there are many rewards for living life well. Something wonderful happens every day if you pay attention. But if you are zipping along life at breakneck speeds, how will you notice it? Life is a journey. Like every journey, you are bound to experience various obstacles along your path. Will you give up on reaching your destination because of obstacles? You shouldn't. Instead, purpose to enjoy every minute of your journey thorugh life, obstacles and all. In short, life is do or die. Life is a journey that must be traveled no matter how bad the roads and accomodations are. Others may be there to go through your journey with you, but no one will be there to go through the journey for you. You must do it yourself. Lastly, remember that life is not a destination. It is a journey to be savored and enjoyed every second you are alive.
Just because Fate doesn’t deal you the right cards, it doesn?t mean you should give up. It just means you have to play the cards you get to their maximum potential - Les Brown
Fake friends are so easy to find and equally easy to loose. But real friends, those are the hardest to find and the hardest to lose. They are like precious jewellery. .... Fake is the new trend and some of my friends seem to be in style.
Why Focus? Because like Henry Ford said, "Obstacles are the frightful things you see when you shift your eyes from your goal..." Stay Focused.
.... Why? Because two WRONGS don't make a RIGHT.
Every so often we go through stuff in life, either knowingly or unknowingly, that affect our identity, bringing in lots of insecurity to us. Sometimes we might not even know about them but the moment we become aware of them, then it becomes a problem right there. Here below I have shared with you two sides of a story that you must have read severally before. Read them to the end and think about the lessons presented in them. ========================================================================================= 1 – Fable of the Eagle and the Chicken - Scenario One A baby eagle became orphaned when something happened to his parents. He glided down to the ground from his nest but was not yet able to fly. A man picked him up. The man took him to a farmer and said, “This is a special kind of barnyard chicken that will grow up big.” The farmer said, “Don’t look like no barnyard chicken to me.” “Oh yes, it is. You will be glad to own it.” The farmer took the baby eagle and placed it with... [Continue reading]
