1.GREAT THINGS NEVER COME OUT OF COMFORT ZONES.
You stay put in your comfort zone…
You are so scared of moving an inch…
You would rather stay in your parent’s abode and eat the 3 square meals that you are sure of…
You can’t afford to take risks…
You are scared you might die of hunger or be homeless…

You are proud and don’t want to reach out to your age mates, class mates etc…
You stay at home: eat, poop, and sleep…
Yet when your age mate or class mate makes it, you start to beef and envy…

Stay put in your parent’s house! The place where you were born! The place you have already spent 25 years, 28 years or oven 30 years of your life…
Continue staying there! Watching TV, pinging, chasing your area girls about like a goat in heat, chatting with all the guys in the area so they take you out in the evening…
Why won’t you have that time? That’s all you live for!

Remain in that comfort zone of yours!

But let me quickly tell you in case you don’t know… Or remind you, ie if you knew and forgot…
GREAT THINGS NEVER COME OUT OF COMFORT ZONES!

I am not forcing you out o! But I don’t want you saying crap about your age mates who have been toiling while you are home eating mummy, thank you…
I don’t want you to be envious when they succeed, while they had the courage to leave their comfort zone, you chose to be a baby forever.

2. Sometimes you find yourself in the middle of nowhere…
At other times, in the middle of no where, you find yourself!

Be sensitive at all times.

3. Our fore fathers were worshipping GOD before the advent of Christianity. back then, although they didn’t know JESUS, they knew the difference between good and bad!
They knew that going to another man’s farm to take his crop was a bad thing to do! They knew that sleeping with another man’s wife was adultery and a bad thing to do. They knew virginity was priceless and as such, most women were virgins before getting married. They knew a lot of things that even people who now claim to know CHRIST don’t know or know but don’t practice. A young woman knows not to defile her body let alone get pregnant before marriage not to talk of following so many men at the same time. The same goes for the men. Back then, A man knew his responsibility and carries out all functions required of him as the man of the household and as such, he doesn’t have to beg for total submission from his wife (wives ) as polygamy was the order of the day then.
They didn’t know CHRIST neither did they read the BIBLE. but they knew that a man who cannot take care of his home is worse than an infidel.
Coming to the aspect of knowing GOD and quoting the passages of the BIBLE… YOU AND I are CHRISTIANS BECAUSE we were born into HOMES that practice christianity.
If you were born into a MUSLIM or HINDU home, would you say one knows GOD if he knows the BIBLE?
You know the BIBLE and to you that’s the standard. fine! okay…
If one knows this BIBLE, and quotes it from morning till night, and no part of his/her behavioural pattern shows that he is a CHRISTIAN, what do you make of such a person?
If another person who isn’t a CHRISTIAN is the one who is morally upright (not promiscuous, does not defile her body, doesn’t drink alcohol, no abortion), is respectful, very kind etc and then you see another woman or girl or lady who knows the Bible from Genesis to revelation but does all sorts of atrocious acts who will you go with?
My point is clear and simple! there is a standard to everything in life, what is wrong is wrong and what is right is right.
We often use GOD and religion to make excuses and cause unnecessary problems.
If not, why would a pastor who is a global figure be doing things that “according to him” a non Christian should be doing? yet he is the one who led millions to Christ.
I don’t want to go on with instances before some folks will say I am judging.
what I know is, when we appreciate humanity and see hurting our fellow human as a grave offence, only then can we truly worship GOD…
Values are the only things that are universal!
They are the only language that all religion understand.
They are the only thing that unite us and make us live peacefully.
They are the only way we show we truly know GOD and strive to be like him. Its the only thing that will make me employ a muslim not minding that I do not share the same religion with him, after all, Christ loved everyone not minding about their religion.
But we see even in the so called CHRISTIANDOM, pentecostals despising and talking against CATHOLICS.
CATHOLICS not being part of the CAN etc.
Is it not funny? what are we even talking about?
I will follow anyone who has respect for humanity not one who carries the BIBLE and acts like a villain.

4. Don’t always expect inspiration and motivation to come in loving forms…
Sometimes, inspiration comes from insults, Abuses, neglect, heartbreak, hunger etc.

And those are the factors that really inspire us the most!

5. Good, better, best…
I shall never rest…
Until my good is better and my better best!

Yes good things will come to you when you just believe…
But we should graduate to better things yeah?
Better things will come to you if you are patient enough…
We should not settle for better things right?

How then does the best come to us?
We get the best, only when we have perservered, persisted and held on…
We get the best when we don’t give up!

Believe, be patient and don’t give up… That way, you get the best!

6. You may succeed in wearing that fake smile in order to make the people around you think you are happy… You fake, you feign happiness… Facade!
But you know what? It doesn’t alleviate the pain you feel… One day you are just going to choke. Let it show, we all feel pains as well as joy! Any man who feels just joy is fake!
He is hiding something…

7. You should never run into something or start doing something because its in vogue or because its the trending thing or because everyone is doing it…

You decided to be a make up artist simply because everyone is now a makeup artist.

You are blogging because everyone is blogging…

You sell clothes because shola, ella and chioma are selling clothes…

Ok I want to be a baker now because nkoli, comfort and peace are bakers and they seem to be making money…

Very poor reasons to indulge or engage in something!

Why are you all about trend? When there is something deposited in you by your creator yearning to come into light…

Why are you struggling to conform when you were created to be unique and stand out…

Honey! Why not do you?
Sweetie! Why not search within you and strive to be original?

DISCOVER YOU TODAY!

8. We use the time we should use to love people to judge them or find faults and flaws… When we constantly do this, we don’t see the beautiful sides they possess!

9. To keep a woman, you have to be:
1. Honest
2. Romantic no matter what.
3. Keep your promises.

10. Someday, we are all going to be mere memories… I am trying my best now to be good memory to as many!

BE ENLIGHTENED! BE INSPIRED!! BE MOTIVATED!!!
