This is one of many things that keep me going and staying motivated. From a very young age, I learnt the importance of words. I understood when to talk and when to listen so whenever I hear or read wise words, I hold on tight to them. I hope this makes your day better than it is and awakens the you asleep in you. Read it with an open mind and let it motivate you.
“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 5 years, the last 10 years.
You may not be able to change that but you can reposition yourself today.
You can make new decisions today that will 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 they will change your future.
None of you was 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 pains and 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 provisions for you.
There is a place for you in the world.
There are certain things you must do.
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 it says the days are evil.
You don't have extra time. Life is not a game; therefore make everyday count for your life.
Improve yourself everyday. Introduce something into your life that counts.
Choose to be a success. Become inspiring.
Distinguish yourself with character with excellence.
If you are a musician be a musician with a difference.
Whatever you do, do it with excellence.
Put yourself and your best into what you do and change your world.
Remember there is no extra time; therefore whatever you 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 will wake up and he wakes up, who says I will read this book and he reads it.
Who says I will go to school and he goes.
Success is waiting for the man who makes a decision.
So time is Important!
Time is Important. Don’t spend your time watching TV 24hrs a day.
Don’t spend your time watching videos 24hrs a day.
Those that you are watching have put their best into what you are watching.
Change the position, say to yourself I will be watched.
There are those who only think about designer perfumes, designer clothes, designer shoes.
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 to a tutor.
Train yourself. Train your mind.
And if you train your mind, it will be ready to deliver to you the right thoughts and ideas that will earn you commercial value.
There is 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 solution, let men come to you for advice.
Decide to be smart. Decide to be a problem solver.
If you make that decision that is what you will be. Problem solvers are in short supply in the world.
There's a place for a 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 are sleeping too much, maybe you are resting too much, maybe you are playing too much!
It’s time to put your best into that writing, let the country read your writing.”
