Choose Wisely!!

The power to choose the outcome of our lives is a gift from God. He created us with that ability and He cannot take it away from us (Ye are gods). The two trees God put in the Garden of Eden (humankinds’s first home) were symbols of our gift and power of choice. We all make choices everyday - We choose when to get up every morning, we choose what to wear, we choose when to eat and what to eat, and we choose where to go to, what to do, and how to spend our day. The choices we make every day determine what we become. You can choose to live or choose to die. You can choose to be a success or a failure. You can choose to be a winner or a loser. You can choose to live in poverty or aspire to be comfortable and wealthy in life. You can choose to be a burden or a blessing. You can choose to live a happy or a sad life. You can choose to be educated or stay ignorant. You can choose to marry or stay single. You can choose who you want to marry or live with. You can choose to live in freedom or be in bondage. You can choose your destiny - The Choices You make every day determine your destiny! MB

The Yoke of Excuse Syndrome

The Yoke of Excuse Syndrome People under this condition always have reasons why certain things cannot be done, why things cannot be achieved and should not be done. They always admit defeat even before they begin or they excuse their failure with one reason or the other. They are failure-orientated people; their mindset is more inclined to failure than success. They envisage failure even where the possibility of achieving success is huge. Those with the disease always come up with excuses like, “I’m not good enough.” “I’m too young” or “I’m too old.” “I don’t know people there who can help me.” “I’m not well-educated.” “I have this disease or this disability.” “People might think that I am…” “What if…” “But my color is…” “But we don’t have enough resources.” “Many people have tried before and failed.” “It is going to be very difficult if not impossible to...” To be a success, you have to believe in yourself, see your potential, and be able to recognize opportunities and know that there is always a way out. You must learn to see solutions, answers, success, victory, and possibilities where other people do not see them. Start to see your world and engage life differently. You have to see your end as God sees it. Inside of you lies so much potential that you do not even realize. There is nothing that the Lord will allow to come your way that you cannot handle. There is no idea that will rise in your brain that you cannot handle. If you can think or imagine it, you can do it. Yes You Can!

Beware of Vision Stealers!

Beware of Vision Stealers! Vision stealers are those people who do not give regard to what you believe about yourself.

Whoever does not believe in you and your dream has not right to access your heart.

Do not think small, think big

To be bigger than what you are today, you have got to start talking big, aiming big, and planning big. There is hardly anything you cannot achieve if you set your heart to it, it’s only that you have not tried it. Backing down and failing to go for what God says is yours is not humility. Humility versus inferiority complex - Humility is the ability to genuinely stoop down and reach out and relate to people without feeling like you are more important than they are. Inferiority complex is the feeling of weakness, feeling less than others, and feeling inadequate. You can make it, the world is waiting for you!
