Attitude Is Everything

Image
There is very little difference in people, but that little difference makes a big difference. The little difference is the attitude. The big difference is whether it is positive or negative. Nowhere is this principle better illustrated than in the story of the young bride from the East who, during wartime, followed her husband to a U.S. Army camp on the edge of the desert in California.
          Living conditions were primitive at best, and her husband had advised her against her move, but she wanted to be with him. The only housing they could find was a run-down shack near an Indian village. The heat was unbearable in the daytime. The wind blew constantly, spreading dust and sand all over everything. The days were long and boring. Her only neighbors were Indians, none of whom spoke English. When her husband was ordered farther into the desert for two weeks, loneliness and the wretched living conditions got the best of her. She wrote to her mother that she was coming home. She could…

Never Stop Dreaming

Image
He is one of the greatest basketball players this generation has ever known. When he was asked how he grew into a star, he said that when he was in secondary school, he was shamefully fired from college basketball team because he was not good enough. He went home and cried! After crying, he began to dream! He wanted to prove to the coach that he had made a mistake. He began to develop his imagination and a mental picture of what he wanted to become. He said his thought began to grow. Then he started playing in smaller courts. His skill and fame began to spread.  The coach included him again in the main team and from then on, he grew and grew in skill till he became so famous that he now wines and dines with presidents of nations.

Friendship Goals ?

Image
Life is about association. Walking with the right people can be productive. The same way, your failure is sealed when you walk with foolish people who have no regard for God.Your relationship decisions are influenced by the choice of your friends. The people you know and you have access to in the days of challenges will determine whether that challenge will crush you or will be crushed by you. If you associate for long with a monkey, you will learn how to jump on trees. If you lie down with a dog, you will rise up with fleas.It is all about laws of connections and relationships.

Who is your friend? Your friend is the definition and description of your life. The future of your friend is the picture of your future. Watch the friends you have, friendship is by choice and not by force. Can you confidently introduce your friends to your parents or any of your relations your highly respect?

Values

Image
A bar of steel was worth about $5 toward the close of the twentieth century. When the same steel of $5 was forged into horses, it was worth $10, when made into needles its value was up to $350, when used to make pocket knife blades,  its worth was $32,000, when made into springs for watches, its value increase to $250,000. Imagine the fire, pounding and bruises the steel had to go through to increase its worth from $5 to $250,000. Yet, the more it was shaped, hammered, beaten, pounded and polished, the greater its value.
             You are just like the $5 bar of steel and if you refuse to increase your value by consciously improving on your self and on your skills, you will be of the same value throughout your life. As we all know, any product or service that is not improved upon will be dumped and the ones that have been improved upon will be sought after by all because they have quality features and benefits that other do not have.
              You get paid for bringing value t…

Success In Failure

Image
It is no secret that our worst fear is often failure.But what if failure is actually a good thing. Many of us try as much as possible to avoid failing. In fact, we are so focused on not failing that we don't aim for success, settling instead for a life of mediocrity. The fact that you've failed is proof that you are not finished.Failures and mistakes can be a bridge, not a barricade to success. Because it's not how far you fall but how high you bounce that makes all the difference. Success consists of getting up just one time more than you fall down.



One of the riskiest things you can do in life is to take too many precautions and never have any failures or mistakes. No one has ever achieved genuine success who did not, at one time or the other, wander on the edge of disaster. if you have tried to do something and failed, you are greatly better off than if you had never tried to do anything and you succeeded.If you are not making mistakes, you are not risking enough.

Appreciate Life

Image
Life goes by in the blink of an eye. So be sure to appreciate the many moments with friends, and family. Happiness comes when we stop complaining about the troubles we have and offer thanks for all the troubles we don't have.Happiness is not the fulfillment of what we wish for, but an appreciation of what we have.
      We humans do not truly appreciate what they have until it's gone.We only realize how much we have gained from that relationship after we call it quit.We recognize the gift of a secure paycheck after we lose our job.Our parents are appreciated after they are gone.We only miss that teacher/lecturer after we have passed out of that institution.
       Learn to appreciate what you have before time makes you appreciate what you had. You may never know the true value of a moment until it becomes a memory. Some people never appreciated the time they were bachelors/spinsters. They were always complaining about how lonely they were until they got married. After they go…
