#FROM GRASS to GRACE#

“It is sometimes a mistake to climb; it is always a mistake never even to make the attempt. If you do not climb, you will not fall- this is true. But is it that bad to fail, that hard to fall?”-{Neil Gaiman}

From a subjective point of view, Failure is not the opposite of success. It is the stepping stone and an integral part of success. We can learn so much from failure than we may learn from success.

When George Tawlon Manneh Oppong Ousman Weah decided to contest, contested and lost the Liberian national elections in 2005, many opposers and critics hurled out negative criticisms about his lack of proper formal education. The truth however was that, he lacked the requisite formal education. He did not even have a High School Certificate though he could speak various recognized languages including French, English, Italian, to mention but a few.

The most important thing was the fact that this iconic man was relentless, willing and ready to confront and correct any hiccups and challenges that might have been the reason for his downfall. He worked hard, forgetting about his critics, to obtain a High School diploma<SHS> at age 40, went on to DeVry University in Florida, where he obtained his bachelor and master’s degree in business management and public administration respectively at age 46.

Today, the 1995 World Footballer of the year and Ballon d’Or winner, the only African to still hold that accolade, is the President-elect of the republic of Liberia. Nothing is truly impossible in this world. It all depends on your determination to make good use of your today<present> to influence your tomorrow<future>!

#HOW TO LIVE YOUNGER n STRONGER#

“He fills my life with good things, so that I stay younger and stronger.”-{Psalm 103:5}

There is an unsurprising rise in disorders of the heart and an increase in its associated mortality cases in this generation of ours. This can be attributed to the many trivial things we incubate and accommodate in our hearts on many occasions. It might interest you to know that about 70% of the space in the hearts of many are filled with poisonous stuffs and contaminants {eg.10% stress, 15% anger, 20% heartbreaks, 25% bitterness and  resentments, etc.}

 Our hearts ought to be pure and free from anything that can contaminate it because the build up of these negative things decreases the room for positive stuffs that will help us live our greatest lives for the longest time. 

Do not therefore hold on to anger, jealousy  resentments and disappointment especially as the year 2017 gets to a close. 

Release these toxins today to make enough  room, and fill your hearts with good things that will help you live younger, longer and stronger like an eagle!

#CREATING GREAT AND LASTING IMPRESSIONS#

  • “The queen of Sheba heard of King Solomon’s fame, and she travelled to Jerusalem to test him with difficult questions. When she saw the food that was served at his palace, the organization of his palace staff and the dressing of his attendants, it left her breathless and amazed.”-{2 Chronicles 9:1-4 GNB}                      First impressions are really important. You never have a second opportunity to make a first and a great impression again. Your first impression is thus the trademark you get to make for yourself as it speaks a lot about yourself without you probably opening your mouth as an individual.                                  What actually mesmerized the Queen of Sheba on her first visit to the famous Solomon was the way his officials were dressed and his attendants presented themselves.   Your appearance therefore creates a fundamental judgment about yourself and your personality. Learn to create a great and a lasting impression always whenever you can, for you may never have a second opportunity again!                                                         #itsalwayspossible#

#THE JOURNEY of LIFE#

“Most journeys don’t have endings, they lead to new beginnings, and these are journeys that lead to great adventures.”-{Alex Haditaghi}

Life is a journey and there is no such thing as a finish line as seen in the game of athletics for example. Once we accomplish a dream, God takes us to the next level and give us another dream to fulfill. Once we overcome a challenge, there will surely be another for us to overcome.

No matter who you have become or what you may have achieved in life, there’s always another mountain to climb. Life is a journey, a challenge and what really matters at each stage is your continued pursuit of growth. Be willing and ready to learn from each stage of your journey of life, and never let your past glories and achievements limit and hinder you from living your greatest life!

 #THE RIGHT PERSPECTIVE#

“The problem is not the problem, the problem is the attitude toward the problem.”-{Unknown}

Show me someone who has done something worthwhile worth being celebrated, and I will show you someone who overcomes adversity, embraces pain and faces problems squarely.  

The problems and challenges of life should not be seen as stumbling blocks but rather stepping stones, they should not be seen as stop signs but rather guidelines. There is absolutely no crown without a cross, no grace without a price and no glory without a story. 

We are often quick to envy the success and milestones achieved by others as humans but we often forget to envy the pains, problems and challenges they endured behind the scenes in their early days. These pains without any hyperbolic assumptions is what developed them to hold on and work harder to achieve greater heights in life.  

May we learn today to train our minds positively to endure the challenges of life and have the right perspectives in life!

#ANGER to DANGER#

“If you are right, then there is no need to get angry..And if you are wrong, you have no right to even get angry.”-[Unknown]

Anger is a strong passion and the natural impulse that causes people to react and respond to certain situations in a certain abnormal way. It is a feeling that can make your mouth faster than your mind. It can ‘black out’ your consciousness and alter your sense of reasoning for you to act abnormally, only for you to return to your ‘ground state’ with utmost regrets. No wonder Paul admonishes us to get rid of all bitterness and anger[cf.Eph 4:31]

Becareful therefore when your heart begins to boil with rage and when anger begins to rise, and think of its consequences, for ANGER is one letter away from D-ANGER!

#NEED FOR SYNERGY#

“Behold how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity.”-[psalm 133:1]

 We live in a world operated by the principle “Each one for himself”, a world where there is no synergy and flow between family and friends, a world where we take pleasure in the downfall of others, a world where we only think we are succeeding when we see others falling and failing. 

There is absolutely no true gain when we live our lives competing against each other and trying to outshine each other.There is no true profit in trying to blow out the candles of others thinking it will make yours shine better and brighter. We should learn to stand together, live together and be one another’s keeper!
