Good character is not lip service. It’s defined by action.
Good character is not lip service. It’s defined by action.
Talk about fear. At some point, all of us have had it.
It’s not the problem of fear. It’s the problem of not overcoming fear.
Fear is a disease. It can progress into a monster called coward.
Fear can make someone miss an opportunity. Fear causes retreat and procrastination; a state of delay to take action. Fear is for the coward.
Because of fear, many talents have ended up in the graves. Graves are the best hub ever of wealth that was not brought into use by those deceased.
When you fear, you invite a state of hopelessness and complexity in seeing the success side of a story. You feel comfortable not to try anything; and this is usually the opposite of any expectation under normal circumstances.
Even while on smooth road, fear makes you see a rough road.
Whenever you doubt whether you can do something or not, then be sure that you can’t.
Never and never will you succeed if you are full of doubt.
DOUBT kicks you OUT of the game.
Because of doubt, you sink in an ocean even when the waves are calm.
Doubt brings your parachute down in an unexplainable manner. You fall with a thud!
Instead of doubt, develop confidence. Think of possibility instead of impossibility.
In any hopeless situation, learn to hold on positive thoughts.
You lose focus when you become despondent. You face doom. You create room for weird resolutions.
Despondency is despair, a state of lawlessness on what best decision to hold on during night times or dark moments so to say.
Despondency is a monster. It should not dominate your life at all. Live positively, think positively and face challenges positively.
Sometimes we fail to be strong during adversity. Right. Human nature attached to this fact. But remember God’s nature as well. The best practice we require in order to drive away these three monsters is to be able to choose God’s nature over human nature and especially in adversity.
Lightning can strike, a landslide can bury millions of us, an earthquake can rock buildings even when we are inside, fire can rage and raze over a hairy forest, locusts can locate a plantation and swarm through, a disease can wipe generations…….and much more.
That’s fine. It happens. But I believe it depends on our courage. I mean the courage to live life amid circumstances. The courage to sleep in bed with enough faith that we shall wake up alive the next day.
# a song by Benard Chinua
Oh Lord my God, my savior,
You are my refuge, my cover.
My Lord is my power, and my tower.
My only arm and my wing.
When tempests fall, HIM I call,
He flies down, holds me up, and I soar,
Below I see my enemies roar,
But in HIS arms I am safe, all in all.
Search me God, know me,
Make me yours, just me.
Le me stay in your armpit, let me.
Le me be under your shadow, me.
Hold me in your arms Lord X 3
For with you, my life is spared.
God bless everyone. Happy Sunday.
#Not everyone loves the way you do things and succeed#.
In fact, some people may feel more envious each time you scoop an award. This has happened before. They may feel you didn’t deserve the trophy! This is practical.
When you are a strong personality, a few people may celebrate your charisma. Majority may want to oppose it, and some may even spend sleepless nights trying to water it down.
Your achievements usually remind them of their weaknesses. In other words, your strength is a reminder of their weaknesses. When you appear on stage to present a concept paper, a song, or to make your speech, they feel inferior. They dig in your presentation for mistakes to bring you down to their level. That’s the only’best’ thing they can do.
When people fight you, or hate you for no clear reason, it may mean the following;
Not everyone celebrates when you win. Not all people around you who jump up when you succeed feel good. Don’t be surprised.
When you are a great personality, the kind of opposition that you receive every time is intense than an ordinary personality.
The difficulties that you face are usually very great. But then afterwards, the glory will match the greater difficulties. In other words, the greater the difficulty, the greater the glory. So, stay positive always no matter what.
Always feel proud when you find yourself opposed, especially when you know that you are doing the right thing. Don’t shed tears. Instead, take advantage and affirm your faith. People fear to approach somebody who has a firm stand. They fear somebody who likes speaking the truth.
When you celebrate your success, do it like you will never celebrate again. It’s your time and turn. What do you want to spare?
But remember, not everyone likes your Prosperity.
It’s very unwise to imagine that you can win a battle by sitting back and not taking any action. A good soldier rises to go and fight. Please mark that.
You fight. You put on your armour and face the opponent. This is not and is never an imaginary affair.
But before that, you need to train first. You may only do little in the battle field if you trained insufficiently or didn’t train at all. The enemy may sound stronger for you because of such reasons. Remember the following:
Battles come in different forms in our lives. Diseases, alcoholism, marital problems, poverty, court cases are just some of them. Remember also that battles may be psychological, for example a mind set that one will never make it in life however much they try.
When you are faced with a battle, remember that your faith is being tested. To grow stronger, you need to be exposed to a test or an examination. As you pass one test, you face another one….and eventually you graduate.
A winner is never characterized by how many battles they fought but how they kept on rising, a battle after another.
The best way to wage war against the enemy is to plan and attack using tact and never to retreat even if the enemy looks fierce or stronger than you.
When you know you are a coward, you may decide to shout and threaten the enemy…in your cowardice state. The enemy may interpret the shout as a danger that wants to send them to the grave. When you know that you don’t have courage, just pretend that you have it.
It’s very wrong to think that battles are won overnight. It’s never an easy ride. Always prepare adequately.
That’s the truth. Thank you.
