When a breakthrough is inevitable

Don’t interrupt the pattern of purposeful activities you have scheduled for yourself because of the uninteresting state of things. Moments like these are statutory trials required to justify your preparation for a breakthrough. In the morning sow thy seed, and in the evening withhold not thine hand: for thou knowest not whether shall prosper, either […]

What good is in a setback?

Anyone with common sense will not want to re-do anything that can be done once.The balance of time and responsibility often makes it an inconvenient last resort to detain our resourcefulness to one task that never seems to get done in spite of our best first-go at it. I am typically not excited about a […]

Adversity is designed to make leaders

Leaders are born out of personal crises. Crisis is a life saver; it forces out the hidden potential in a person. It makes the person a rallying point, an anchor for those who are about to break down in the ongoing whirlwind of life and a model of possibilities that are still mere dreams in […]

How to handle grief

Life is in seasons. Seasons are interspersed with events, opportunities and eventualities. We must learn to manage them as they come, especially the eventualities, but if we insist then experience (that second rate teacher) will have to take over from wisdom. We all, most likely, have had to experience the passing of some one in […]

There is beauty in diversity!

Life would be so stale if all was one and one was all. …if I could not see any difference between me and others, if we look so much alike and behave similarly (that would be so strange!?), then it feels as though anybody cancels everybody and nobody is somebody. Interestingly, that’s exactly what some […]

FOCUS on what you have

I had typed a fairly good script and I just lost it. So, I think I will just summarise my thoughts again… The reason why you don’t value what you have is you think others have something you don’t have and they’re having a great deal of fun, leaving you out of it. That makes […]

…And if the world doesn’t stop?

When things suddenly take a miserable turn, as though heaven’s help is withdrawn… and we begin to stutter at our recollection of past interventions, finding words to aptly chronicle our recent predicaments, and frantically protesting this abrupt intermission in our all-too-glorious autobiography taking “ages” to complete; does it astound us that life continues? ~ ~ […]

Misunderstanding

In this age of gross deconstructing, the by-product of post-modernism, misunderstanding is as inevitable as the air we breathe. The mind of man today has its own self-decided meaning of words and expressions independent of standardized dictionary interpretations. Apart from this postmodern challenge, we can say that man interpret words and expressions 80% of the […]

Where do you place your value?

Not talking about all the integrity stuff we get to hear everyday. Albeit valid, several people have grown quite uninterested in such moral sermonizing. (I have not, for how then will I live without integrity?) However, have you ever considered that, “what you have today is more important than what you don’t have?” You know, […]
