POEMS


Spring

 

Haaaaaahaaaaaaaaahaaaaaa

Heeeeeeeeheeeeeeeeheeeeeeeeee

What is this?

 

It is a sound in nature.

Spring is singing and ringing its bells.

 

Its songs are ringing through the leaves of all plants

They are sing hello to mankind

And hallelujah to God.

 

If spring’s voice are heard through the leaves

 Then, need I sing beautiful songs, that will echo in now and eternity.

 

 

 
Peep

 

Peep, peep, peep, who are you?

Day dream or night dream?

 

I am the future peeping through your mind

Nurture me, nourish me, and help me grow to live in nature.

 

I will be grateful if you will; and, I make you great and greater

Life will also be grateful for your deed and never will you regret

 

But, if you reject me

You will regret and life will disgrace you.

 

Am your better future peeping

Help me grown and pump me out to live in nature.

My ideas


Like roses and orange trees, every success has thorns on it.

Don’t paint your pains. If you do, you will feel it more.

Principles are not cheap; maintain them when you get them.

If the road is smooth, you will speed up and get into an accident. Keep on slowly, yet gradual and you will graduate.

Think whilst there is time to think, and tomorrow will be yours as you act.

Hope and faith are that which make you to say nope to fear, failure and obstacles and go on to become great winner.

Our efforts are steps forward. Be strong and move on even in tough times.
 

How to get to your desired destination

“If my goals and continuous steps are not in agreement with where I want to be soon or tomorrow, then I am deceiving myself.”

If time is on my side, then the difference between where I am, and where I want to be are good and wise steps.

A police man caught a thief and decided to handcuff him, because he knew that the man may struggle with him and run away leaving him hurt. That is wisdom. This wisdom can be applied into many areas of our lives for good.

Look, when character becomes a culture, that character is like a thief. If you do not tie it down or handcuff it, it can cause you problems and make you to hurt yourself. For many people, they are not where they are because they are not able to tie down the wrong types of character and desires.

 People as a matter of fact want easy life, instant gratification and more. These sorts of characters becoming culture can hinder our progress. This means, the only way to freedom is to handcuff them if you really believe that you have a purpose and great goal to achieve.

Many military men do end up becoming successful in their field of endeavors after coming out of service. The secret is, they apply the disciplinary life learnt in the military to their personal lives. The discipline makes them to say no to the enemies of progress like laziness, lack of goals, lack of following purpose…etc.

In life, most people can make it if they tie themselves down. My personal research does reveal that many do not make it to where they desired to be because they took wrong courses and steps. Think about some African nations for example: they claim wanting progress and do say they are making progress, but, they are sleeping.

The truth is that, though they brag of wanting to do this and that, they do not take the right steps towards the achievements—in fact, the monies to be used for those achievements end up becoming properties of most of these braggers. These and more make Africa to end up becoming beggar and non-great achiever although it is supposed to.

Taking the wrong steps will always lead to a wrong place. Israel is in the Middle East—if I want to go to Israel, I must take my steps towards the east, and not towards the north.

Our lives can be better, and we can get there if we take wise and simple steps. However, if I take the wrong steps and wrong directions, there is a guarantee that, I will not end up where I desired to be.

Dear, let’s have clear and good goals and pursue them like a lion after its prey without hurting anyone along the way. I am saying this because, the Merciful God is also a God of judgment who will judge all in eternity. Blessings!!!!!!!

The independence of Africans


The late Dr. Kwame Nkrumah and many others did fight for the independence of Africa and got it, and not the independence of Africans. In fact, Africa can never be free until all or most Africans are independent.

This may sound foolish, but true. Africa is independent, but most of the people in it are not independent, hence Africa is always dependent though it claims to be independent.

Independence is a mindset. It is mindset that makes people to embrace responsibility and accountability. Independence is that which makes people to sacrifice to serve the needs of others as human beings. Independence is that which makes people not to take bribes from their fellow men, because they believe that they are people of integrity; and even, when they need extra money they know that their potentials can help them obtain the money without letting anyone suffer. Independence is that which makes a man to tell himself, “am wrong and need to correct myself”. Independence is that which makes people to see evil as evil and greed as greed and refuse to participate in it.

Independence is a lifestyle that makes people to innovate to help themselves and others even if it is small. Independence is that which says, “I will be self-reliant in smaller ways and grow to be self-reliant in bigger ways.

Many Africans are not independent; and without the being independent, Africa as a continent can never be independent. So, the real meaning of independence must be taught in all homes and schools until all become independent mentally. Africa cannot prosper with over dependence mentality. Please, let us change!!!!!

A Journey into Abundance

My wonderful quotes and ideas to motivate you

 
ü I know that you have placed your order in life, which is good. To ensure that you obtain your desired order, be patient, prayerful, positive, persistent and courageous.
ü Why do you think God should give you another month?
 What do you want it for?
ü Focus on essentials and leave the non-essentials. Your life dream is an essential. Television is not an essential.
 List what you want the month for, and when God gives it to you, you can use that time to accomplish the purpose.
 
ü To know more about you, look around you.
ü Competence breeds confidence, so always prepare before and action.
ü The fact that I do not see something does not mean the thing does not exist. To see some things require faith, skills and instruments.
ü To live and keep on succeeding, we need to be lively.
ü The truth that sets free are those that we hate and dislike.
ü If a man looses his value, that man is worthless, and deserves not to be on earth.
ü Competence breeds confidence, so always prepare before and action.
ü The fact that I do not see something does not mean the thing does not exist. To see some things require faith, skills and instruments.
 
ü Knowing what we are strong at in life is the beginning of greatness in life.
ü To be great, you must be very strong.
ü To convince yourself, you must talk to yourself in a persuasive way.
ü Hearing the word of God daily is convincing you for God and good.

In farming, we do weed weeds; in relationship we need to see the good side of our partner, and in our jobs, we need to focus on the bright side. These can help us to persist and become winners. The opposite will lead to the other side.
 
ü Persistence is the best way for persuading the universe to give you way into the future.

Hello World


Know where you are going from the start
 
 
As people, we always need to see the end from the beginning. The truth is, we are not omniscience and we can never become omniscient. Life is full of accidents. However, we can overcome them if we use the capabilities God has given to us. It is the desire of God that we always look ahead when acting in anyway.
For example, if you want to become an engineer in the future, you will go in for courses that will lead you there—that is seeing ahead. If a woman knows that she is pregnant, she will start buying clothes for the baby to come. Doing this is seeing ahead.
The Lord Jesus knew where He was from, and knew where He was going at the age of twelve. This knowledge shaped His perspective and boosted His confidence—in fact He threaded on higher grounds.
People who do not know where they are going do waste lots of time on the road. Some also do end up giving up. However, those who know where they are going, never do that. This is because they do see the glory ahead from the beginning. Knowing and seeing the glory ahead boost them to move on despite the hurdles that may come.
Knowing where you are going will not make you to be afraid. It is just like the people who use boats to come to Europe. What motivates them is they know that when they get to Europe and obtain a job, their poverties will be erased.

Achieving what we desire

Although we cannot have all that we desire; it is also true that it is hard to get what we do not desire.
Desire is a propellant. It goes with purpose.
Wherever you see the word desire, please do replace it with “hunger and thirst”. So, the question is, how hungry arte you for what you desire?
To achieve what we desire, we need to work for it. If we desire heaven, we must hunger and thirsty for it. Without that one will fall along the line. My personal observations and research in life has shown me that many people are very good at talking and never do well when it comes to action. This is one the great reasons why many fail their promises and loose focus off their goals and target.
As people, we need to design what we desire, and desire what we design. If we desire what we design, it means we will be forever willing to follow it to the end—see its materialisation. Almost there, but never there is a life of catching winds. And, the truth is our hands were not made to catch winds, but stuff. So, we need to be serious like mad hungry lion and catch the good things we desire. Lets us be catchers of the good desires and our lives will be glorious.

Thoughts

Amass spiritual health. Admit your failures and fears and do something about them.
Arrive after starting.
Accompany your children wit God’s wisdom; else others will accompany them with evil thoughts. Accomplish greater things, not small things.
Adopt news strategies daily.
Asses all before accessing.
Adore God always.
Attract all good and wealth.
Act once without delay.
AFFILLIATE, ASSOCIATE WITH God and good, not Satan and evil.
Abilities help in flying higher.
Thoughts 2


THE GOSPEL OF CHRIST IS OUR GOLD AND PILLS. WE NEED EVERY TIME--JOSHUA I VS 8. THE WORD OF GOD IS OUR FUEL. THE FAITH I HAVE IN CHRISTS HELPS ME TO FIGHT ON AMIDST ODDS.
MY HOPE IN HIM MAKES HAPPY. SILENCE HAS A VERY POWERFUL VOICE. ONLY THE WISE CAN HEAR IT. I CAN HIDE ANYTHING, BUT I CANNOT HIDE THE REAL ME. POLITENESS IS NOT REPENTANCE. PRECIOUS IS SALVATION TO ME. IT MORE PRECIOUS THAN ANY TREASURE I CAN THINK OF IN MY LIFE. THERE ARE TWO THINGS WE NEED TO FILTER EVERYDAY. INFORMATION AND THE FOOD THAT WE EAT. THESE ARE THE TWO MAIN CAUSES OF OUR SICKNESSES. IF YOU ARE NOT PART OF SOMETHING IN SPIRIT, YOUR BODY WILL HARDLY BE PART OF IT. UNITY, MUST BEGIN FROM OUR VERY SELF--BODY, SOUL AND SPIRIT NEEDS UNITY. LOOK, IF YOU SEE SOMEONE UNHAPPY, IT IS BECAUSE THERE IS A TEAR DOWN SOMEWHERE.

My Thoughts 3 
 
THERE ARE THINGS, WORDS  THAT MAY NOT MEAN ANYTHING TO ME. YET, TO SOMEONE THEY MAY MEAN SOMETHING SPECIAL OR LOT. THINK OF SOMETHING LIKE COLLAGE ART--IT IS DONE BY BRINGING PIECES OF THINGS TOGETHER, EG RAGS. THIS TEACHES ME TO VALUE THINGS AS I GO IN LIFE. KING SOLOMON VALUED THINGS THAT MANY REFUSED TO VALUE.
MY LORD AND SAVIOR JESUS  GAVE A SOLUTION TO LIFE BY USING THE BIRDS AND THE PLANTS. IN MATTHEW 6. HE TALKED ABOUT HOW GOD CARED FOR THEM THOUGH THEY ARE NOT HIS CHILDREN.

HOWEVER, YOU AND ME ARE THE CHILDREN OF GOD. THIS MEANS, GOD HAS A SPECIAL ATTENTION AND CARE FOR US NO MATTER WHERE WE ARE ON EARTH. ARE YOU BURDENED BY SORROW, PROBLEMS? ARE YOU CONFUSED? HE IS THE ONE THAT MADE WAY WHERE THERE IS NO WAY. HE IS THE ONE THAT DELIVERED THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL FROM THE EGYPTIANS. HI IS OUR HELP AND SHEPHERD(PSALM 23, 20). CAST YOUR BURDEN UPON HIM AND ALWAYS REMEMBER TO LIVE THE CHRISTIAN LIFE. GOD WILL COME TO YOUR AID. THE FACT THAT OTHERS DO NO CARE DOES NOT MEAN THAT GOD DOES NOT CARE.

The leaders’ character

Everyday I do shine my shoes and faces. It is equally good to shine my character too. Rudeness is a bad manner in life. It can drive people away from me. However, good characters are keys to attracting people.
Being a leader is to lead people and affairs. A manager is not there to manage people’s lives, but affairs of his organization. In the beginning of creation, God dumped the spirit of dominion in everyone. This is the kind of nature in humanity does not permit others to put us down. This character in humankind is that which leads to rebellion when someone presses her or him.
I as a leader have come to learn that, i can gain respect through what I give. This is what refers to as the golden rule is. It works miracles. I have decided to do to others what I want them to do to me. This means to love my team, appreciate them and encourage them. It also means that I should not put them down, criticise them nor insult them. This is because they are human being like me. Again, being their leader does not mean am better than they are.

EBENEZAR

CLIMBING EVERY HILL CAN WEAKEN AND MAKE US WEARY. HOWEVER, WHEN YOU ARE HALF WAY ON THE CLIMB, AT TIMES THE WEARINESS MAKES US TO STOP, OR WALK BACK. IF WE WALK BACK OR STOP, IT MEANS THE JOURNEY,S ENDEAVOUR HAS BEEN VAIN. THE BEST SOLUTION IS TO CLIM ON TILL WE GET TO THE TOP.
AT THE TOP, WE WILL BE ABLE TO SEE CLEARLY WHERE WE ARE HEADING TO, AND WHERE WE CAME FROM.
JESUS ON HIS EARTHLY MINISTRY ENCOUNTERED DIFFICULTIES, BUT THOSE DID NOT STOP HIM CAUSE AFTER ALL HE IS ALREADY IN FLESH-- HE STRIVED AND WON THE BATTLED TO SAVE US.
WHERE ARE YOU DEAR? ARE YOU ABOUT TO QUIT THIS GLRIOUS JOURNEY CAUSE OF HARDSHIP? PLEASE, DONT. THE LORD IS AT HAND AND YOU WILL SOON BE REWARDED. THOSE WHO WENT BEFORE US SUFFERED MORE THAN US, YET THE NEVER GAVE UP. PLEASE, DONT GIVE UP.


 

My thoughts

• Purpose out-leads every good thing. • A bright future begins with knowing and good relationship. • Know yourself, know those around you and the world you live in, and you will face the world with boldness. • Fear can bring insanity. • To live in awareness, you will need wisdom, knowledge and truth—these are mind and eye-openers. • All of us need knowledge to help us understand. To live without understanding is to live in great darkness. • The great cause of accidents is distraction. Watch out! • You are the greatest treasure of God; so, treasure your life and trade it for good.
THE FIRST PERSON THAT NEEDS TO RECOGNISE YOU AND WHAT YOU HAVE IS YOU. € To be grateful with what we receive from others is one of the ways to greatness.

Truths from Dr Mensah Otabil

God is starting a new process with Africa and it is expedient for us to position ourselves strategically in order to fulfil our destiny here on earth. We have to live by design. Living by design entails three (3) major areas. They include:
1. To take your life into God’s design. This implies that there is a bigger plan and purposes for our lives.
2. To pattern our lives in a deliberate way. This also means that we consciously choose to make decisions that enable us to pattern our lives after God’s design.
3. To become the best possible version of our lives.
It is refreshing to recognize that God want us to lift up our game to the highest level. We cannot live our lives fulfilling the lives of others. Our lives must be fulfilled to the maximum. We must be the best in all our endeavours. We can purposely and deliberately choose to become who we want to be in future. We have the choice. God is prepared to work in our lives, but we also have a role to play in order for our existence to be purposeful. Our gifts and talents must also be used to the fullest.
SOME LIFE PHILOSOPHIES Philosophy is simply an idea, attitude, beliefs, viewpoint, thinking etc.
1. Pre-destination: This philosophy implies that God has already decided what will happen. They belief that we are going through life because God has already pre-destined it.
2. Existentialism: They also have the notion that their lives is in their own hands. Nobody determines the way they should live. They take control of their own destiny. They control every outcome of their lives.
3. Fatalism: They belief that whatever will be will be as fate may have it. They are powerless in life. 4. Nihilism: This group of people has the belief that the end of man is death. Life has no meaning. They don’t seem to know the purpose for their existence. They discourage the effort of others. They don’t see value in life.
5. Christianity: This aspect is our main focus. “God works in us both to will and do His pleasure”. Whatever we do in life is very imperative. Our philosophy will determine how far we go in life. Although God has a plan for us, we invariably also have a role to play to make our life become meaningful. After life, there is Eternal life. Christians chooses words carefully. “We will be judged by our words”.
TWO KINDS OF FUTURE
Jeremiah 18:7-10 1. Predictable future: What our future will become if nothing changes. 2. Prepared future: This is when changes occur. “Your future is a joint venture between God’s intentions and your choices”.
The power of imagination is an essential tool to use if we want to live our lives by design. Imagination is the faculty or process of forming new ideas, images, sensation or concepts in a moment when they are not present to the senses.
Note: Our imagination basically goes beyond our senses. Living by design starts from our imagination. We must not live on the dreams of our parents. Our dreams must be base d on our own imagination. Imagination will facilitate us to do the following:
• Originate new possibilities. • Re –arrange existing scenarios. • Plot out alternative courses of action. • Create a preferred future for our selves.

Sayings

◾To be able to master physical things(material) and increase in wealth, seek to increase the virtues in you. This is the key. King Solomon sought for wisdom and wisdom made him to have the rest (read Matthew 6 vs. 33).
◾Understanding is the key to knowledge and wisdom. ◾He or she that wants to rule must first seek virtues, not vices.
◾Love has great power; those that know this are great rulers. ◾The greatest rulers unseen are words. Words are governors and they command lives.
IT IS NOT HOW OUR FACES LOOKS LIKE THAT DESCRIBE US MOST. IT IS OUR CHARACTER MY DEAR. OUR CHARACTER IS THE CREATOR AND MAKER OF DIFFERENCE. THAT IS WHAT WE OUGHT TO SHINE THE MOST TO ENABLE IT GLITTER. A GOOD LEADER IS A CREATOR OF GOOD DIFFERENCES IN HIS OR HER OWN WORLD AND GENERATION. TODAY, THERE ARE MANY MISLEADERS THAN LEADERS THAT IS WHY THERE ARE LOTS OF CHOAS AROUND. THE QUESTION IS, ARE YOU A GOOD LEADER, AN IDLE LEADER OR YOU ARE A MISLEADER.
THEREIS SOMETHING MORE THAN SUCCESS; AND THAT IS SIGNIFICANCE. ◾THERE IS SOMETHING HIGHER THAN SIGNIFICANCE; THAT IS SEING THE GLORY OF OUR SAVIOUR. ◾GOLD GLITTERS, BUT GLORY IS MORE THAN GOLD. ◾ WHAT MAKES PEOPLE TO FO NOTHING IS NOT FAILURE. IT IS THE PAIN, RIDICULE, EMBARRASEMENT THAT FOLLOWS IT. THE QUESTION IS, IS ARE THESE MORE IMPORTANT THAN YOUR FUTURE OR NOT? ◾ BE LIKE FOOTBALL IN LIFE. WHENEVER LIFE HITS YOU DOWN, BOUNCE BACK. ◾ REPITITION OF KNOWN MISTAKES IS STUPIDITY. ◾ ACCEPTING FAULTS AND MISTAKES REQUIRES BRAVERY. WHAT A PERSON DOES OFTEN IS WHAT PROGRAMS HIM OR HER FOR SUCCESS OR FAILURE. GOOD DAY.

Seeing the outcome from the start

4 times 4 is equal to sixteen. In fact, if you want 16 to be your result, you already know which numbers to bring together to give you 16. Similarly, to succeed in life does not require much thinking. What is required is “Common sense”. This is the reason why even those who did not get to college could become millionaires.
In fact, it is not the book-long that matters. It is applying the common wisdom at hand as the ants do to save their lives from hunger in winter that is important—we do not need all knowledge to live a better life.
Acting in anyway without first having full or partial knowledge of the out come can be disastrous in life. Although it is good to risk, our risks must be calculable and intelligent ones.
I have seen people who do spend more money than they earn; and, because of this, they are always in debt. Most of such people do end up thinking that it is their organizations that is not paying them enough. For people with such attitudes, no amount of money will be enough. In fact, if you give them a million today, do not be surprised that the money will be finished by the end of that same month. Besides, the sad story is, they will not be able to tell you what they exactly did with all the money. One of the reason for this is they do fail to plan, budget and balance needs and wants with the income at hand. This means, they did refuse to see the outcome from the beginning.
Not seeing an outcome of a thing from the beginning does not bring progress—it leads to accidents. In fact, it is like acting without thinking.
I know that none of us want to do things and regret. So, let’s always see the end from the start even if it is not all that clear to our eyes. Remember, before an airplane flies from Milan to Accra, Ghana, it always makes sure that the end is in order. If there is any problem at its destination, it will not take off. The common sense to help us succeed daily is all within our reach. Let’s use them.

Lack on interest

The bible makes it clear that two cannot walk together except they agree. Today, people go into professions they hate and dislike because they want to make a living. Are we here to make a living or we are to be our best and do our best?
To be in such a condition, and yet think that you want to excel will not be possible. This is because without unity, there can never be progress. People who are in jobs they hate cannot be creative nor recreate. In fact what they are doing is they are passing out time.
If two cannot walk together except they agree, then, people who are in jobs that they hate will end up killing the job; or the job will kill them before their due time.
Dear, what I want to tell you is that interest matters a lot. If you are passionate about something, you can do the thing without feeling weak or tired even when you are supposed to. However, if you are not passionate, 8 hours may seem as millions of years to you. If you agree with this, then my suggestion is to go far in life we need to choose and do something we have interest in, not just anything.

You have greatness in you

This is true, and let me give you few simple proofs to clear all doubts that are in your mind regarding what I am saying.
The first reason is, you and I survived out of nine million sperms to become who we are in life. Secondly, one thing to know and note is that, it is the greatness in us that makes us to grow and do and great things bigger than our physical bodies.
The other reason is, it is this greatness in us that makes us to grow old with time, and makes the body to give up and we fly into eternity. The greatness in us is like yeast in bread. It influences the body to grow; and at a certain time, when growth cannot take place again, that greatness begins to weaken the body in its desire to move on to higher grounds, thus old age sets in.
Part of this greatness in us is the spirit of creativity. This spirit is that which makes us to imagine, create and recreate. When this spirit gives us ideas, we need to act on it. If we refuse, the results will be sadness and regrets. So, we need to live the greatness in us. Beyond this, life will be empty.
“After inner growth, the next thing required is outer growth (create and do great things beyond imaginations).” “To stop creating is to stop being.”

THE 2U’S

. The first U is Urgent, and the second U is Using. So our discussion is urgently use what you have to get what you want. God created us with a body.

Each body has its use. The hand is used for multi-disciplinary activities like writing, eating, driving and… Our mind is used to think and reason, our eye is used to see, our ear to hear and ….

This implies that whatever we have is given to us for a particular purpose, and we must use it without thinking of the barriers, without fearing any human being. To some of us, God has given us the mouth to talk and convince others, sing etc. To others, he has given the ability to write and write beyond comprehension.

The question is, are you using what you have? I mean the certificates you have earned at school, the skills you have and those great talents in you. Are you allowing them to get wasted due to human barriers like bureaucracy which I call bureau crazy. One secret is, if we fail to use what we have at its right place, we will fail and miss it.

I believe you know Psalm 1 verse 3, the bible says, a tree planted by the river side shall be ever-green (mine ENGLISH).This is true. But, do you know something, if the tree refuses to extend its roots into the soil and tap water it will die? If the tree uses its roots, we also must use what we have to get what we want. Let me tell you a story about the tortoise.

The tortoise is the animal that has more qualifications (diplomas, degrees) than all the others on its back, yet it is poor. Yes, it is because it is not using what it has to get what it wanted. On the other, the lion is a king not because of its hugeness, beauty, but because of its intelligence.

My dear great one in Christ, you are going to be great if you use what have. When you use what you have you will get what you want. Jesus used bread to get bread from heaven. With nothing, we will get nothing. Let us use what we have, and we will get what we want in Jesus name.

Respecting the Law of Manifestation

The ways to progress require lots of work. In fact, there are lots of battles to fight and lots to learn. One thing that I believe are important is to know the laws of manifestation. In my opinion, knowing the laws of manifestation can help us to achieve a lot.
To make things to manifest, we need to respect principles, procedures, keys and strategies. In fact, nothing does happen for nothing. For anything to happen there is a procedure to follow. Rejecting the procedure and doing something different will definitely will help in producing wrong results.
In fact, one of the things I have discovered is that, one of the greatest keys to knowing the laws of manifestation is common sense. Common sense has to do with applying the power of our conscience in us. I am saying this because our minds have the power of predicting the outcome of most things in life. For example, I do not think that I need an oracle to tell me that if I put my hand on fire, it will be burnt. This is because my conscience through the power of its knowing does know what fire is, and what it can do.
What I want to say is, achieving our dreams require us to use common knowledge and our conscience. In fact, all that is needed is willing heart for action. This is because, it is only action that can help you and me to translate what is in our thoughts into something touchable. The truth is, that dream is achievable if we follow the law of manifestation.
These few ideas in this book is written to remind you of the many things you know, so that you can take action and bring your dreams into reality. My word for you is, respect the laws of manifestation and you will not regret.

Live This Life that You Have

If power or authority is given to you and you refuse to use it, that power will eventually be wasted and become worthless. I use to be a good player of football when I was young. Playing the game, I had lots of injuries that scared me from playing football again. Today, I do not know how to kick a ball. In life there are many people who are supposed to be players, but most of them have become spectators because of one reason or the other. By becoming spectators instead players, many have lost their skills through resting and warming benches. In fact, there is more joy and gain in playing than watching. One truth is, players are there to gain, and spectators are there to loose-loose their money thereby making players rich. My friend, being a player pays much for the body and financially. So, it is better to join the players instead of joining the spectators of life. Whatever thing that wants to prevent you from playing should be discarded. This is because, there are bumps everywhere. We can get wounded in the air, in the waters, at home and on the field. There is no escape. So, please encourage yourself and be out there to play instead of hiding or dodging. Dear, your life is an opportunity. It is an opportunity to play greatly and skilfully. Refusing to play where you ought to play is giving your authority away. In fact, it is like making mockery of your potential. I have seen lots of people who have failed in life because they gave their authority and opportunity away through trusting and over dependence on others. This ought not to be so. Look, your dream was given to you and you only-that is why nobody sees it, but you. It was given to you to make it a reality; and no one can make it more real than you. So, you need to use all the available resources, encourage yourself and go ahead to materialise that good dream in you. Please, do not try to leave it into other people's hands. If you do, the dream may not live, and the results will be a great regret. So, dear, use the available resources and live this life. In fact, you have many resources available and can still get more. Think about your experiences, knowledge, preparation, people, time, space, etc. All of them are available resources that exist for you. Think also of other resources that are available and use them to live this life in your hand now.

Lack of Interest

The bible makes it clear that two cannot walk together except they agree. Today, people go into professions they hate and dislike because they want to make a living. Are we here to make a living or we are to be our best and do our best? To be in such a condition, and yet think that you want to excel will not be possible. This is because without unity, there can never be progress. People who are in jobs they hate cannot be creative nor recreate. In fact what they are doing is they are passing out time. If two cannot walk together except they agree, then, people who are in jobs that they hate will end up killing the job; or the job will kill them before their due time. Dear, what I want to tell you is that interest matters a lot. If you are passionate about something, you can do the thing without feeling weak or tired even when you are supposed to. However, if you are not passionate, 8 hours may seem as millions of years to you. If you agree with this, then my suggestion is to go far in life we need to choose and do something we have interest in, not just anything. Blogger Gadgets

Essential Qualities of Effective Leadership

Leaders require being in every sphere of human endeavour. Though the spheres may differ and the details may differ, some basic qualities are common. The lack of these qualities will result in ineffectiveness. Conviction and full persuasion about the whole business of and under the leadership is the first essential quality. Many organisations are over today, because those at the helm of affairs have no persuasion about who they are. One can know my effective leadership by how many obstacles and oppositions I overcome. Besides, having the courage to move despite opposition are the hallmarks of effective leadership. To become an effective leader several qualities are essential. Some of these qualities are solid conviction, submerging compassion and steadfast courage. To me leading people is a call. This means that I have to prepare for eventualities, which will enable me to serve better. This is because; not having these thoughts can get me to get lost in the forest of leadership. It can also derail my abilities and focus which will eventually make me to fail. The comprehension of the term or word leadership is not clear to many people, especially African leaders. Not having these, understandings within their minds do make many to go off from the lane. Instead of they becoming servant-leaders they choose to be autocratic and despots which is contrary. In reality, the word leadership is a great title. In real sense, every title is a position linked with purpose. If the position fails to hit the purpose, it is great disaster. Since leadership is a title. I have developed and acronym with the word "title" to help me in leadership. The "T" in the word title teaches me how to be true to my talent, organisation, and myself. Secondly, the "I" tell me to be initiative and intuitive. Thirdly, the "T" tell me to teach others, talk less and think about tomorrow. Fourthly, the "L" teaches me to lead with all my heart, learn and listen with all my all, whilst the "E" teaches me to excel.

Secret to Getting What We Want

The first "U" is Urgent, and the second "U" is Using. So our discussion is URGENTLY USE what you have to get what you want. God created us with a body. Each body has its use. The hand is used for multi-disciplinary activities like writing, eating, driving and… Our mind is used to think and reason, our eye is used to see, our ear to hear and …. This implies that whatever we have is given to us for a particular purpose, and we must use it without thinking of the barriers, without fearing any human being. To some of us, God has given us the mouth to talk and convince others, sing etc. To others, he has given the ability to write and write beyond comprehension. The question is, are you using what you have? I mean the certificates you have earned at school, the skills you have and those great talents in you. Are you allowing them to get wasted due to human barriers like bureaucracy which I call bureaucrazy. One secret is, if we fail to use what we have at its right place, we will fail and miss it. I believe you know Psalm 1 verse 3; the bible says, a tree planted by the river side shall be ever-green (mine English).This is true. But, do you know something, if a tree refuses to extend its roots into the soil and tap water it will die. If a tree uses its roots, we also must use what we have to get what we want. Let me tell you a story about the tortoise. The tortoise is the animal that has more qualifications (diplomas, degrees) than all the others on its back, yet it is poor. Yes, it is because it is not using what it has to get what it wanted. On the other, the lion is a king not because of its hugeness, beauty, but because of its intelligence. My dear great one in Christ, you are going to be great if you use what have. When you use what you have you will get what you want by God' s Grace. Jesus used bread to get bread from heaven. With nothing, we will get nothing. Let us use what we have, and we will get what we want in Jesus name.

Doing the Expected Leads to Smiles at the End of the Day

One day I woke up in the morning and did all the things that are on mind without referring to my goals. In fact, at the end of the day, I was sad and did regret because there were many important things that I left out. Living through the day the Lord has made for us without goals leads often to regret. This is because, without goals, it is easy to left many things we are supposed to do undone. This makes us to achieve less rather than achieving more. In fact, when we achieve less out of the many to-doo, what often comes to us is sadness. To benefit from each day and smile at the end of the day, we need to go into every day with goals and stick to them-this is the secret of great achievers-this is what makes them to go far. Going into each day with goals at hand, can make us to reflect on our goals over and over before heading to achieve them. Such a thing can make us to spot difficulties and plan for them; it also can make us to pray over our goals. Well, am saying prayers because I believe that heaven is the source of our help and prayer can help us obtain the strength of heaven. My dear, our goals are our help to achieving greater things in life, do not go into any day without it. If you do this, you will smile every evening and in a while you will see yourself in great places. For example, it is one of my goals to write 4 articles everyday. The truth is, not doing this does bring me sadness. So, everyday, I do stretch myself to accomplish this to keep my spirit happy. Shalom.

Planning Ahead of Time

This morning, I went to my insurance company to pay the insurance for my car. Before going, I did ensure to count the money I was taking to them, because there were lots of coins in it (60 Euros coins). When I got to the office and gave the money to the clerk, she told me that the money was not sufficient after counting it three times. Well, knowing that it was sufficient made to prove her wrong. I told her to give me the money, so that we can do the counting together. Systematically, I counted the money to her satisfaction. She then thanked me, and gave me my insurance. Well the truth is, I did had the confidence to prove her wrong, because I did my home work very well to count the money several times before taking it with me to the office. Secondly, I did have the courage to prove her that I am right because of the knowledge that the money was up to the amount. Bringing this home, what I mean to say is, planning and preparation for the future are some of the great keys to success. They make us to be courageous, confident and bold where others are shivering. Think about driving a car. If you have never driven a car before and a car is given to you to drive, you will shiver. However, if you know how to drive, you will drive the car with smile and courage. This means it is good to think and out-think in life if we want to become great over-comers. The secret is, we cannot do good nor better without planning ahead. I hope this may help in these hot times. Shalom.

Foundation

Today, I tried doing some calculations without a calculator. Whilst adding the numbers, I made a mistake in the beginning and that affected the rest of the calculation- I had a wrong answer. The truth is, if the beginning is bad, it is likely to affect the future. Without a strong foundation, it is likely for one to shake, fall and faint along the way. A building that has no strong foundation is nothing to the wind or storm. However, a building that has a strong foundation will stand irrespective of the adversities that will come. This means, whatever we choose to do, we need to focus on the foundation-if the foundation is strong and best, the rest will be good. Foundation is very important, especially if the journey is a longer one. Think about building a tower. Building engineers normally do spend lots of time on the foundation, because they know that without it the rest of the building will not be strong. This means that whatever we choose to do in life, we will need a stronger foundation. For example, I am able to write what am writing, because I know the English alphabets. If I do not know them, it will be impossible for me to write. The bitter truth is, we cannot do better without a good foundation; and with a good foundation there is guarantee for a better future irrespective of the accidents that may come. In every building, if there is a problem with the foundation, the rest will be woes. However, if the foundation is strong, there will be wealth. Please, spend time on foundation of every endeavour of yours and you will excel.

How to Be Seen

Identifying a white cloth among red clothes can be very easy. When snow finishes falling, and everywhere is white, it is easy to spot many things at distance. Making a difference in life or standing out of the crowd is easy. Look at the ant, it is small, however its industrious character has made great people to notice it. The serpent is well known for its wisdom, a parrot is known for its beauty and talks, a lion is known for its courage, light can easily be known in darkness. It is easy to stand out wherever we are. There are two things that can make us to stand out-vices and virtues. The latter is bad, and the former is good. Virtues promote and promises people a better future, but vices demote and hinder people from getting far. Which one do you prefer? I know you will prefer virtues. Whatever virtues that you have, write them down, and make sure to use them. They are keys of leadership and wonder promotion. Inside each one of us are virtues that makes us unique; and if we polish these virtues and use them we will enjoy life everywhere we go. To help us also, we need to try as mush as we can to add more to the virtues we have. In Zig Ziglar's recording of "over the top", Zig did talk about his granddaughter's pay increase in one of the fast food industries. He said, when the young girl got the job, he told her that when she goes there, she must try and do whatever is needed to be done without waiting for someone to tell her. The young girl on her first day did that. The attitude of the girl pleased the manager, and made him to give her a starting salary that they usually never give to anyone. The truth is, it does not require so much to make a difference or create a difference wherever you are. However, it takes much to maintain it; and less to destroy it. So, as we make our minds to make difference using our virtues, we need to watch out. To make a difference all that we require is to make our mind, and start it from where we are. For example, if all the people around you love gossiping, you can keep your mouth shut-that is difference. If someone insults you, leave the mad person to go away-that is making a difference. Making a difference is not about shouting. It is about standing out for good, justice, peace and love wherever you find yourself. More than 2000 years ago, in an era when evil was flourishing in Israel came a man known as Jesus. He came to preach the gospel of peace and salvation with courage. His words and good deeds made him to stand out among the mass. Today, though He is not here, His difference can be seen felt and remembered. Had it not been His gospel, I may not be here writing. My dear, life is short, yet even in the short time that you have, you can do something significantly with the virtues you have in you. We are waiting for you.

How to Win Minds and Hearts

The Lord Jesus had a humble beginning, but by the time He died His influence was all over. What was His secret? The bible says he went everywhere doing good. He was kind, nice, gentle and good. Besides, He had great interest in the needs of people. In fact, His goal everyday was to add value to people's lives. King Solomon's influence was not because he was a king. What made him had great influence was his wisdom. To be a man or woman of influence does not require much. What it requires are things we often overlook. •1. Humility •2. Kindness and love •3. Patience with people in odd times •4. Wisdom •5. Forgiveness •6. Love •7. Faithfulness
There was an African who went on a missionary journey in Philippines. One day, he visited a friend of his in the UK. When he was returning to the Philipines, his friend gave him some amount of money as a help. This man used half of the money to buy some few boxes of chocolate. When his friend asked him what he was going to with the boxes, he replied that they are for members of his church. He said, these are small, but to my members it is a great thing. The man did what he did, just to let members of his church know that he thinks about them. Think about the birthday cards we receive. It is not the cost that counts, but it is the love that is behind the card. Think about this, why do many buy flowers for their lovers occasionally? It shows love, it makes the relationship stronger.
The truth is to influence is very simple. All that is required is humility. Many of us are often not willing to bend, because we think that bending means loosing dignity-this is not true. It is those that are wiling to bend that will receive the crown of greatness of nature. You have heard about Nelson Mandela. Read about him and you will understand what I am saying. You can be a person of influence if you follow the few points above.

Being Careful with Promises

Very many people do like to bite what they cannot chew. Very many people do say lots that they cannot do. In fact, there is a great gap between the doing and the saying. Another thing is, human beings are humus'"anything can happen to them from now. Someone can give you a promise and die in the next minutes. So, dear beware of this and be careful with promises. Over and over, the bible has warned that we should not put our trust in people. This does not mean that we should not trust people. What the bible is saying, we must be careful with where we fix our hearts. Imagine someone promising you some amount of money for business; and you rejected all the opportunities that came your way for this reason, but at last you were denied the money. What will you do? You will be mad and angry, right or wrong? It because of such reasons that you do not need to put your trust in promises. If someone gives you a promise, accept it, but never put your whole man in it. This is because if the person does not fulfil the promise it can lead you into disaster and mess. Another thing is we all have promising future I believe. Though this is true, we need not to put our whole soul in the future. This is because the promising future may never be what we once expected. Kingdoms and economies are falling, and many will still fall. Great business will be collapsing to give room to others. The truth is we cannot precisely predict what will happen to us in the next few minutes. For this reason, I please encourage you not to put your trust in people and wealth so much. I have seen people who went and died because of debt or lost. I have seen people who have hurt others because they once promised and failed them. People die of heart attacks because of promises. The truth is, these are parts of the ups and downs of life. Prepare for them, because the preparation will help make the hurt insignificant when it comes your way. Over and over, God has taught me not to put my whole trust in people by making me experience things I cannot tell you. The truth is after long time experiences, I have learnt a lot and I am now free from the hurts of promises and the future, because I know that, they are there and will always be there. The best solutions are, be ready for them, and learn not to put your whole heart neither in people nor things. Put your trust in God and He will make you to be more than abundant.

Do Not Leave Your Destiny in Others' Hands: Pursue the Greatness in You

Very often we do leave our destiny into the hands of others without knowing it. Many do this through indecision. Some do it through procrastination. What they never remember is procrastination is a killer of destiny. My dear, you have life, time, gifts, health and space. To have these things means that you have great opportunities. The truth is in every time and season there will be opportunities, because problems will never cease. I mean most of what many call problems are opportunities in disguise. If, this is true, then, I want to tell you that, a good opportunity rejected is success rejected. Dear, what you ought to always remember is your future is in your hands. God has given it to you'"your existence here is an ordinance. Well, if you need help from God and you ask him through prayer, He will be more than willing to help. But, if you do not ask, it means you are not authorising him to do so, and He will not interfere. Your future should not be left into the hand of anything or anyone besides God. This is because no one can fulfil your mission on earth for you. You only are ordained to do so. This means, you are the governor of your life. If you are the governor, you need therefore to be careful, not to go astray; else the results will not be beautiful. One truth is people we trust will let us down. However, someone's action should not stop us from living. Circumstances may go wrong'"I mean business may collapse, but that does not mean we have to go and hang ourselves. Life is full of lots of disappointments, and many types of chaff. These will come your way, remember. However, if they come, do not allow them to stop you from living fully the life and purpose given to you. I remember sometime ago, a company employed me and gave me lots of promises. Few months later, the man that made the promises left the company. However, before leaving he told me that I will get the necessary promotion when the time is due. For years nothing came. Seeing this I took my decision to go to elsewhere and live the life of my good and great dreams. If I had remained there, I would have been hoping in hopelessness. The truth is many will misjudge you. Many will spit on your legs because they think they are more human than you. Whatever they do, do not be bitter about it, instead let that challenge you to go further and become better. If someone denies you a job, instead of being bitter, think of creating your own company to prove to the person that all mankind were given abilities to be better. I have seen people who in the name of love have ended their lives in great mess and are living in depression. Look, I believe that, if the earth rejects me, heaven will never reject me. If someone hates me, there are millions that love me. That is empowerment. Knowing and having this truth in me makes me not to bother about the negative things that are trying to pull me down. I rather focus on the positive that challenges me to better in life. Look, when Alexander Graham Bell invented the telephone and decided to bring it to light for the benefit of all, Western Union told him that they are not interested in electronic toys. However, knowing what he has invented empowered him to pursue his search. He did that until he got those who saw the good of the invention. The question is, is western union not using telephone today? The fact that someone has rejected you or your idea does not mean that you need to give up. Never do that. In the face of adversity, pursue, and you will prove them wrong. Think about Colonel Sanders of KFC. When he wanted to bring KFC to light, hundreds rejected him, but today, KFC is a multimillion dollar company. What I believe is, if the tape rejects the cassette, it does not mean that the cassette is the one having the fault. The cassette can be good, but the tape is not. Often times, I have tried playing some DVDs on my machine, but the machine will tell me the DVD is empty. The truth is not that the DVD is empty. The truth is that, the player is too archaic and limited to read the truth. Sadly, many people that you see do not see beyond their nose. Look, Jesus was rejected by his own people. Does the rejection mean that He was not the saviour? The truth is though they saw the great things He was doing; short-sightedness prevented them from seeing the real. Your life is yours, and your future is very important. Please, do not allow circumstances, issues, offences, hurts to cripple you from living fully to the glory of God. Be responsible for your destiny. Never settle for the less, because you are not little. God created you to have dominion over the earth, not over little things'"be your best and do your best to go in for greatness. Look, I know one thing about you'"it is that you are a master of the things God has created'"you are greater than you think. Dear, you can make it, so do not leave your destiny into the hands of past failures, circumstances, and continue lamenting. Arise from the lamenting place, be at peace and pursue the greatness that is in you till it shows forth. Being an African, I have seen people who were born and were not catered for, yet they became great in life. The truth is help or no help lets make our mind to make to the top. We have the abilities and the capabilities, so let's act. God is ready to help, and has spoken that nature should help you. Success is calling, please respond, now.
