Invest In Your Mind

Proverbs 24:5-6"The wise are mightier than the strong and those who have knowledge grow stronger and stronger. So don't go to war without wise advice, victory depends on having many advisers" While studying and analyzing a few things about life. I have strongly come to the conclusion that is is disastrous to be arrogant and ignorant.
In my analysis, I looked at when homes are broken into, the things that get stolen are TVs, Laptops, fridges etc but never things like books, magazines or news papers. I believe people are driven by what they see that can give them temporary happiness but they aren't driven by what can give them eternal value. A lot of truth lies in written pages, a lot of wisdom is shared by the minds we interact with when we read or listen to their messages. How about you take time to financially educate yourself in the areas that are really perturbing you. Let me quote what Robert Kiyosaki said in his book, Rich Dad Poor Dad, he said, "If you want t…

You Are Not Less Than What You Ought To Be – Part 3

“The only thing worse than being blind is having sight but no vision” – Helen Keller
In his book, Vision less life, Meaning less life” Dr Sunday Adelaja talks about a lady who broke the barriers of adversity. Her name is Hellen Keller.
Helen Adams Keller was born on June 27, 1880 in Tuscumbia, Alabama. Keller was born with her senses of sight and hearing, and started speaking when she was just 6 months old. In 1882, however, Keller contracted an illness - called “brain fever” that produced a high body temperature. Within a few days after the fever broke, Keller’s mother noticed that her daughter didn’t show any reaction when the dinner bell was rung, or when a hand was waved in front of her face. In simple terms she became deaf and blind. In 1887, Keller’s teacher, Anne Sullivan, helped her make tremendous progress with her ability to communicate, and Keller went on to college, graduating in 1904.
This is a unique story. It is unique in many ways because her parents and teachers did wh…

“The greatest discovery in life is self-discovery. Until you find yourself you will always be someone else. Become yourself.” - Dr Myles Munroe Identity Crisis
As I continue from where I stopped in part one of this subject “You Are Not Less Than What You Ought To Be”. I want to delve into the importance of "knowing our Identity"
My dear reader I strongly believe that when you know who you are, no one can manipulate you and it puts you in a position to rise above every challenge. Joseph was thrown into the pit and sold into slavery but that did not deter what he would become. He remained a faithful servant even when he was jailed. He had already had dreams and conceived the revelation who was and what he would become, this is an amazing story that is told over and over and it reminds us that there is so much at stake but we need not fear but rise to the occasion.
There is an Identity crisis and this is something we shouldn’t shy away from. There are young or old people who stil…

Be A Generational Thinker

Generations come and go. Some people set the pace for hundreds of years while others destroy the future for many. Our actions are a direction proportion of what we sow for our immediate, near and long term future. Blessings flow through generations because of acts of obedience and curses as well flow because of acts of disobedience.
When I think about Abraham, his decision to live his family and follow what God had told him to do that is something of great faith. He left and went to a place the Lord would show him. Getting to the unknown by a God who knows, is a pure act of faith, He trusted in God's ability to lead him to the promise that would come after many years.
We have seen corruption eat up the wealth of many people, it has disadvantaged and ravaged the lives of many, many of the corrupt decisions have left many hungry, poor, services broken down. We have seen over the years that our direct actions have a bearing not only on our lives but on the lives of those attached to us…
