As we look forward to the new year 2017, let's reflect on these:

 Learn to ignore and overlook many things if you truly want happiness in life  because the easiest way to a miserable life is to think that everybody is talking about you.

Never allow anyone to steal your joy from you.

What people say behind your back is none of your business as long as you are true to yourself. Never worry yourself about that.

Sometimes minding your own business does not keep people out of your business.

No matter your situation in life people will always talk. You can never stop people from talking about you, what you can do is to stop giving them what to talk about.

There is a time limit for every rumor in life. Never allow freelance broadcasters put your life on hold. Do what makes you happy. Anyone who cannot feel your pain, has no right to judge you in life. Seventy percent of those who talk bad about you behind your back, wish to be like you.

When people can't be like you they try to bring you down and condemn what you have. Those without money will sarcastically say money is not everything in life. (Is poverty anything?)

Never allow anyone to put you in a position of depression and self pity in life. Those whose life has no joy will always find every means to remove happiness from other people's life.

 If there is the GRACE of GOD in your life, then enemies are inevitable. If no one has ever gossiped or talked bad about you, it means nothing good has ever happened to you.

Never feel bad when old friends become new enemies. They are just tired of pretending to be friends.

Never allow the opinions of people who didn't see your tears stop your laughter in life. You don't owe anybody an explanation to be happy.

Never see yourself through the eyes of those who don't value you.
To be beautiful means to be yourself. To stand out is to be out-standing. You do not need to be accepted by others. You just need to accept yourself.

Never beg anyone to accept you for who you are. Anything you acquire through begging will require begging to maintain or retain.

Be humble but selective. Being selective doesn't mean you are arrogant or proud. It simply means you know your worth. If you are conscious of your personality avoid too much familiarity.

Sometimes when you treat people too much like celebrities, they end up treating you like an ordinary person. You are equally important.

Never downgrade yourself while trying to upgrade anybody in life. Anyone who sees you like an option doesn't deserve to be a priority in your life.

The dream of a fool is for everybody to become a bloody fool like himself.  Avoid negative people if you have a dream. Those without mission will say your vision is just an illusion.

Negative minds will never give you a positive life. Anyone who is always reminding you about what is wrong with you has a personal problem which he/she wants to take out on you.

Most people spend half of their entire life analysing the faults in other people's life, when their own lives need urgent repairs.

Never worry yourself about enemies and friends, because everybody in your life will eventually fall into one of the two categories.

Some will hate you and some will love you. Loving you or hating you are both in your favour. When people love you, you live peacefully and happily in their hearts,  and when people hate you, you become the landlord in their head living painfully in their brain everyday and giving them sleepless nights.

The best awaits you in 2017

Today, I reflect upon the day of my Birth and the Journey thus far in my earthly mission; the purpose of my birth and the essence of my existence in this beautiful World with its seeming hurdles and conquests. I come to realise that indeed, LIFE IS FULL OF BEGININIGS.  They are presented every day and every hour to every person. Most beginnings are small and appear trivial and insignificant, but in reality they are the most important things in Life. 

In the material Word, see how everything proceeds from small beginnings. The mightiest river is at first a rivulet over which the grasshoppers could leap; the great flood commences with a few drops of rain; the sturdy oak, that hat has endured the storms of a thousand winters, was once an acorn.
In the Spiritual World, consider how the greatest things proceed from smallest beginnings. A simple Word from God brought forth light to a dark and void world; He created heaven and earth; man and all creatures of the world; from one man, came generations born and yet to be born. Indeed, a word from God brought forth me, a being full of Life and inherent potentials. You are definitely not left out; you a product of a wonderful beginning, created in the Image and likeness of God.

 A light fancy may be the inception of a wonderful invention or an immortal work of art; a spoken sentence may turn the tide of history; a pure though entertained may lead to the exercise of a world-wide regenerative power. 

Have you yet discovered the vast importance of beginnings? Do you really know what is involved in a beginning? Do you know the number of beginnings you are continuously making and do you realise their full importance?

A beginning is a cause, and as such it must be followed by an effect or a train of effects and the effect will be of the same nature as the cause. A beginning also presupposes an ending, a consummation, achievement, or goal. A gate leads to a path, and a path to some destination; so a beginning leads to results, and results lead to completion. Indeed, there are right beginnings and wrong beginnings followed by effects of a like nature.

If your beginnings were right, pray for the Grace to keep it up and to persevere till the end. However, do not dwell upon the sins and mistakes of yesterday so exclusively as to have no energy and mind left for living rightly today, and do not think that the sins of yesterday can prevent you from living aright today. Begin today right with the world, and aided by the accumulated experiences of all your past days, live it better than your previous days; but you cannot possibly live it better unless you begin it better. 

Seek the Grace of God in all that you do; be inspired by a word from God and let the beginning of all your endeavors for the rest of your life be a right beginning that leads to a fulfilling and happy end irrespective of the obstacles, challenges and hurdles that may present itself. 

You are Blessed beyond your imaginations and expectations… 
 You are God’s Own!

REMINISCENCE: Our Deepest Fear.

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.
Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.
It is our Light not our darkness that most frighten us.

We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented and fabulous?
Actually, who are you not to be?
 You are a Child of GOD.

Your playing small does not serve the World.
There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you.
We were born to manifest the Glory of God that is within us.  
It’s not just in some of us;  it’s in everyone.
And as we let our own Light Shine,                                
We unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.
As we are liberated from our own fear,  
 our presence automatically liberates others.

Remember, you are who you say you are!

SUCCESS: Overcoming Obscurity.

As we journey through life, there are times when we feel empty; we seem not to fathom the purpose of our existence: why we are where we are.  
We strive but don't seem to get to our designated mark or point. Worst still, we seem to be distracted and held down by the  noises around  us. It seems more like one step forward and two step backward. 

At such point, we are tempted to give up on our dreams and aspiration; our quest for a successful future become obscured by the uncertainty of what tomorrow may bring. 
How then do we navigate this path of obscurity to the destination of success?

Interestingly, there are fundamental questions we tend to overlook but they are a bearing to the path we decide to take. Such questions include: "What is your definition of Success?" and "Why do you want to succeed?". 

Indeed, each person has his/her own definition of success but What is your own perspective of success?  and what is your yardstick for measuring success
Is success all about amassing wealth and fame? Is it all about garnering knowledge and academic qualifications? Is it about having a booming business/empire or getting married to the love of your life and raising a beautiful and wonderful family?.

Someone once said that people lose out in life because of these 4 reasons:
  1. Being myopic to opportunity
  2. Looking down on opportunities
  3. Lacking understanding
  4. Failing to act quickly enough

Below are some assertion; do they in anyway give an insight to what what success is and the reason to succeed?

"All men dream, but not equally. Those who dream in the dark recess of the night awake in the day to find all was vanity. But the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act their dreams with open eyes, and make it possible."

T.E. Lawrence

"Shouts and Joy comes after victory, but it takes FAITH to shout before victory ! "

J.U. Anumba

"No matter what one does, regardless of failure or success, the experience is a form of success in itself.
Jack Ma

"In this world, there are things that are deemed unfathomable, but there is nothing in this world that cannot be done. The depth of one's ambition is determined by the potential of one's future.

Each of us has a personal calling that's as unique as a fingerprint - and that the best way to succeed is to discover what you love and then find a way to offer it to others in the form of service, working hard, and also allowing the energy of the universe to lead you.

Remember, it's not by power or might, but the Grace of God in You.
