LESSONS FROM LIFE

Life is the teacher
I am the student
God is the owner of the school.

Yesterday, life told me
Friends are people
With common interests.
Once the interest shifts
An enemy is not far off.

The day before
Life told me
Real people have few friends
Fake people have more friends.
That’s why politicians
Give fake promises
And most celebrities
Live fake life’s.

Three days ago
Life called and said
Those that smile always
Are not problem free
But God filled.

This morning
Life taught me
That people are poor
Not because of lack of money
But lack of ideas.
People don’t invest in people
They invest in ideas.

Some minutes ago
Life taught me
That some people
Discourage your dreams
Not because they hate you
But because they
Underrate the God in you.

Some seconds ago,
Life told me
That he who has faith
Is destined to
Achieve fate.

I really don’t know
What life has taught
Or told you.
What I do know is
When God is the ruler
Of your world
Life might give you
Tough lessons, but
On the long run
All would make sense.

JUST BEFORE YOU SAY GOODBYE

If there is one specific lesson life has taught me, it is the simple fact that the closer we get to people, the easier it becomes to lose them.

i would explain why in a but, but before then ask yourself this question, “Have i really had any reason to fight with a person whom i often see and seldom chat or talk with?” I guess 98.9% would come out of their question thinking fitted cap saying a no with so much confidence and vigor.

The closer a friend becomes, the more this friend knows your weakness and forgets that why you became friends in the first place is because he or she appreciated your strengths.

People are so quick to forget that no human is perfect and no matter how beautiful a woman is facially, there would always be a clause somewhere around her body. It could even be a character defect which comes right from inside the mind.

A friend once told me about a mentor of his. Before he got closer to the man, he appreciated his good works and his zeal, passion and commitment to blessing life’s and creating lasting legacies. When he got closer to the man, he started complaining about how brutal and selfish he is.

The funny part of the story is that everything he complained about, he shouldn’t have noticed in the first place because they directly did not involve him.

MY ADVISE: When you get closer to a person is, “have a reason and stick closely to that reason”. If you intend to make the person one step ahead of friendship, then you must be ready to accept the person with his or her flaws.

Just before you say goodbye, always remember the good side of a person and ask yourself this question, “Is saying goodbye worth it after comparing this persons strength with his or her weakness?”

Even if saying goodbye is worth it, learn to close the door gently while you say the goodbye. Never say goodbye banging the door on a friend that once made you smile and happy.

The world would be a better place if we all remember that we are all different and unique in our own way.

HOW MONEY CAN BE EARNED

Money is produced by a combination of talent, hard work and responsibility.

To earn money in the right way, you need to invest the talent God has given you into meaningful and productive works.

The more you develop your talent, and turn it into a productive skill, the more you will earn.

Note: Money gotten from a dubious means would never last.

Good Morning.

Focus On The Future!!!

Successful people focus on the future. They focus on the opportunities and the action if today rather than the problem and difficulties of tomorrow.

DON’T worry or become angry at something that you cannot change. No amount of worry Or depression can change the past .

Rather than worry about yesterday, focus on today. Give today your best.

Celebrate your life!
Happy Week!!

HUMILITY BRINGS RESULTS

The more you can contain your ego, the more realistic you would be about your problems.

Note, the first step to solving a problem is to realise that you have gone wrong.When the problem is solved, result is achieved.

Proud people never go far in life because they are to arrogant to admit that they have made a mistake.

Humility is very key to getting great results.

Be wise
Seun Emmanuel Alaofin

HUMILITY IS NOT WEAKNESS

Only fools see been humble and meek as being weak. Wise men understand that been humble means you are strong and secured.

Humility means you have the self confidence and self awareness to recognise the value of others without feeling threatened.

Humility means you can admit that you can go wrong, that you DON’T know everything and still have your self esteem intact.

Good Morning.

START NOW (PART 2)

When you make mistakes, DON’T feel bad. When things are not moving as fast and smooth as you planned, never think of quitting.

WHY?

Because you are far ahead of those who have not started. Remember, you can only make mistakes when you apply effort.

Therefore mistakes mean you are trying but you need to do better.

If you are yet to start, note that they are so many people ahead of you.

START.

START NOW!!!

Anyone you appreciate today is not greater or better than you. All they have done is to start what they have imagined in their mind before you did.

You DON’T have to be great, full of experience, and have enough in your pocket to start that project.

When you start, you would start picking up majority of the things you need to know along the way.

JUST START!!!

WHO ARE YOUR FRIENDS!!!

When the wrong people leave your life, the right things start to happen.

A friend that does not bring anything good into your life is not permitted to stay in your life.

Sometimes you need to move a few steps backward in order to take the right steps forward.

Look very well. What kind of friends do you move with? Would your life move forward with or without them?

Answer these questions!!!

GIVE TODAY YOUR BEST SHOT

The best preparation for tomorrow is to do today’s job properly well.

The only advantage of procrastination is that you have so much work to do tomorrow.

Never worry about tomorrow, focus on today. Tomorrow would take care of itself if you take care of today.

So what are you waiting for?
Drop all the worries of tomorrow and focus on giving today your best shot.

I believe in you.
