Quotes that will change your Life -5

Quotes that will change your Life -5

For better or worse, you’re responsible for everything in your past and future. Don’t blame your parents, your teachers and your boss. Take it on Yourself. – Tavis Smiley

Have seen and heard people blame other people for their failure in life, but I do wonder why? Everything that happens to one is for a reason. You own your life, so the way you live your life doesn’t concern anyone. So why blame anyone for any bad that happens to you. Some people blame their parents for their failure in life. Fine! Even if your parents doesn’t give one all one’s wants or request for, that doesn’t mean we blame them. Our parents have their own role to play in our lives and that major role is to guide and advise us. They are not to take decisions for us.
It will be foolish for one to blame anyone for his/her failure. The people you blame for your failure also have their own lives to live. So relying on other people, expecting much from people will lead one to know where. It is only God that can be relyed on.
Tavis smiley has cleverly stated that Take it on yourself!. Everything that happens to you take it on yourself. We have total control over our lives and not other people’s lives. We can only control our own life and actions.
Allowing negative influence from people will affect one badly
A wise man rightly said ”The people who fail in life are those who don’t listen to anybody and those who listen to everybody.

All the best

Quotes that will change your life -4

You can only control your reactions and attitudes to what happens to you but you cannot control the actual events. Learn the difference. – Brian L. Weiss, M.D

Many of us have gotten it wrong, we need to know that we can only control our reactions and attitudes to what happens to us, but we cannot control the actual events
Likewise the same, we can control ourselves but we can’t control the attitudes and actions towards us.
The best thing for us is to learn to control our reactions and attitudes to what happens to us. As Brian L. Weiss has said learn the difference. There is a difference between controlling our reactions and actions and someone controlling the actual events of things.
But the more you think you can control the actual events the more you keep failing. When we work on our attitudes and reactionw then we will see that the actual event will then favour us.

All the best.

The Beautiful Damsel with No character

A Poem: The Beautiful Damsel with no character

Sitting at the verandah
Looking up unto the sky
Relaxing in the cool evening
To receive some fresh breeze

I saw a beautiful damsel
I saw her and I was overwhelmed
Have never seen a beautiful damsel like her before
Then I saw her approaching the house
I made up my mind that I will go and approach Her

But in some few minutes still at the verandah
I saw her naked, fighting with a pepper seller
Hurling abusive words at the woman

I wanted to go settle the fight
But my friend told me not to
He said she is the beautiful damsel with no character
He said she was trained but didn’t receive training.

Then came to my mind was the saying
True beauty is not facial looks but character
True beauty lies in the character

Many of the beautiful damsel with no character are out there deceiving men
They are the beautiful damsel with no character
You will see them on the street
And it will be like you haven’t seen a beautiful damsel before
But you need to know they are beautiful damsels with no character

They will be the talk of the town
Every woman talking about them
Even the men talking about them
The young and old talking abouting them
Coz they are the beautiful damsels with no character

They are not to be approached
Approach them and receive your doom

They are many, many out there
They are the beautiful damsels with no character
The beautiful damsel with no character they are indeed!

Have a beautiful day ahead
Love you all

Quotes that will change your Life -3

Quotes that will change your Life -3

”You aren’t facing death alone; God is with you. You may be facing unemployment, but you aren’t facing unemployment alone, God is with you. You may be facing marital struggles, but you aren’t facing them alone; God is with you you may be facing debt; but you aren’t facing debt alone; God is with you. YOU  ARE  NOT  ALONE.” – Max Lucado

God is with us! we are not alone! Only if we can realise that God is with us, only if we know that God knows all our fears and troubles, then we would know that we aren’t living this life alone
Personally, have realised that God is with me, have known that am not facing the ills and troubles of life alone.
Everything we do we should know that we are not alone. God is watching us all. I guess the quote is self explanatory.

I also saw this short write up and i felt i should share it with you

YOU Are Not Alone
Whithersoever you choose to be, you will meet people there
Whether you choose the disciplined, tight, but profitable way to eternal life
Or you choose the pleasured, loose, but destructive way to eternal death, you will always have them with whom you can flock together
Whatever is your choice and wherever it leads you, you won’t be solitary
I saw the wise heart thinking about the end
But in the pleasure for the moment do I noticed the foolish heart getting beclouded
And the wise heart saw glory at the end of this pathway of hardness, and work there in But the foolish heart will not see the shame soon overtaking the pleasure of this road way while pitching his tent, and got destroyed.
Narrow is THE WAY that leads to righteousness, a handful pass through it, but broad is the way that leads to destruction, they be many thronging such part.
Whether you inherit glory or shame becomes a promotion, it is your choice.
Whether you gain or get pain, it is your choice.
Whether you get commended or condemned, it is your choice.
Just know, you are not alone

Are you Ashamed of your Age

Are you ashamed of your Age

This morning a friend and I were both discussing about some issues, then he brought up a matter about people forging their age, when he first brought up the matter I was kinda indifferent about the topic, he was like there is a lot of people who forge their age etc.
At first i didn’t see anything bad in it reason being that, I also do add to my age, most times I add 2 or 3 years to my age or even more. And also
in all my social media accounts apart from my twitter account i didn’t fill in my real age. So this didn’t allow me see anything bad in adding to ones age until when i got home and gave it a thought
Why do people add to their age?
Why do people reduce their age?
Is it that they are ashamed of it or is there anything bad in it?
on the first question why do people add to their age, i reasoned on my little mind that people add to their age for no just reason, but due to the fact that they don’t want to be seen has a young person, some other people also add to their age because of employment opportunities and many more. Some people also add to their age because they are ignorant of the fact that it shouldn’t be.
On the second question why do people reduce their age? I will say this is the mani koko lot of people have reduced and many people are still reducing it. I can say that I know a lot of people due to employment opportunities and other things. I remembered a time in Nigeria when the Nigeria Football Association were recruiting players for either the U-20 football team. I can’t remember precisely which of the Nigeria football team. Alot of Nigerians were said to have reduced their age.
So right now in my own view for any reason one shouldn’t add or reduce their age, forging age or any docunment is wrong, it is a sin.
There was a story I read about a woman, this woman along with few other ladies applied for a Job, though the qualification for the Job stated that the applicant must be between the age of 20 – 25 unfortunately for the ladies they were 2 to 4 years older, the other ladies reduced their age but this lady didn’t reduce her age she was seen as stupid and someone who wasn’t smart but this Lady told herself that for no reason would she forge or reduce her age, other ladies forged their age and the truth was they got but within the space of two months they were sacked and the other lady that didn’t forge her age oc of employment opportunity was called upon for the job.
That’s the way it should be. I see it that it is only if one is ashamed of ones age that’s when one will be forced to add/reduce his/her age
Are you ashamed of your age?
Will you for any reason forge your age?
Is it good for one to forge his/her age

I will like to know your opinions and views about this post in the comment section.
