So I had been thinking to myself, “dude, it’s been ages since you blogged! Ki lo de?” (Don’t be deceived, I suck @ Yoruba!)
I’ve had several reasons. In fact, I have had several great reasons, but yesterday, I listened to something that made all those reasons seem… well pathetic.
I don’t know who the speaker was and honestly, I don’t really care. All I know that is that I got my mind blown!
Trust me, it was lots of work writing this out, but I do believe it was worth it.
I believe it’ll be worth your while.
So please, read and DO!
Selah! (Stop and reflect)
You cannot change yesterday, but you can do something today that can change tomorrow.
It doesn’t matter how you were born, that was yesterday. It doesn’t matter what happened last five years, ten years… you may not be able to change that, but you can reposition yourself today.
You can make new decisions today that’ll change what tomorrow will bring.
Invest in your future, refuse to be a mental HOBO! Refuse to end your life on the sidewalk.
I believe that if you hear these words, you will act on them and you’ll change your future.
None of you was born to be poor. You may have been born poor, buy you were not born to be poor.
You may have been brought up poor, but you were not brought up to be poor.
Understand this; the definition of adulthood is responsibility. When you become an adult, you take responsibility for your future. Become responsible.
What do you have in yourself?
There are many who cry for help and because there are no answers to their call for help, they feel the pain and the pangs of neglect.
No, refuse to give up. Believe in what GOD made.
GOD made you and HE never made a failure.
Believe that GOD has a purpose for your life.
You may have been born as a parental accident, but you are not a divine accident. GOD knew you were coming and he made sufficient provision for you. There’s a place for you in the world, and I’m helping you find that place.
There are certain things you must do for these things to become a reality.
There are things that are not in abundant supply, they are limited.
One of them is time! Save time! Save it! Keep track of your time
The Bible says for us to redeem the time, because the days are evil. You don’t have extra time.
Life is not a game; therefore make everyday count for your life. Improve yourself every day. Introduce something into your life that counts. Choose to be a success, become inspiring
Distinguish yourself with character, with excellence.
If you’re a musician, be a musician with a difference! Become inspiring. Whatever you do, do it with excellence! Put yourself and your best into what u do and change your world
Remember there’s no extra time, therefore whatever u do now, do it the best way the first time
Success is waiting for the man who says yes to success. Success is waiting for the man who plans for it, who reaches out for it
Who says “I’ll wake up” and he wakes up
Who says “I’ll read this book” and he reads it
Who says “I’ll go to school” and he goes.
Success is waiting for the man who makes a decision. So time is important
So don’t waste your time watching television 24 hours a day. Watching video 24 hours a day.
Those that you’re watching have put their best into what you’re watching. CHANGE THE POSITION! Say to yourself, I will be watched!
You know sometimes, I’m concerned about those who only think about designer perfumes, designer clothes, designer shoes. WHERE ARE YOUR DESIGNS? Where are your own designs?
Challenge yourself for the future, there’s room for you. There’s a place for you at the top! Train your mind and use it.
Give yourself to a teacher, give yourself a tutor. Train yourself and your mind
And if u train your mind, it’ll be ready to deliver to you, thoughts… the right thoughts and ideas that will earn you commercial value
There’s no poverty for the man who has made an investment in his mind and is willing to act
There’s no hunger for the man who has trained his mind to think through on every problem. To solve every problem.
Train yourself, think through a problem, render solutions, let men come to you for advice.
Decide to be smart; decide to be a problem solver. If you make that decision, that’s what you’ll be
Problem solvers are in short supply in the world. There’s a place for the man who chooses to be one
Engage yourself in national issues, get involved, get concerned
Some of you are the best writers in the country. BUT WHERE ARE YOUR WRITINGS?
Maybe you’re sleeping too much!
Maybe you’re resting too much!
Maybe you’re playing too much!
It’s time to put your best into that writing and let the country read your writings!
