We are drawing curtains to a close this weekend and this happens to be the concluding part of our motivational lessons from the just ended world cup. So many titles came to mind as I write this post but after reading, you can give it a fitting title yourself.

Am sure you remember very well how Ghana was eliminated from the world cup. It was after that emotional game with Uruguay. I don't want to remember the game but I must still talk about it anyway. In life, those who come around you may be there for reasons including any of the following; Either to give you a helping hand and support you to achieve something meaningful(eg. some wifes and husbands), or to do everything possible to prevent you from achieving your ultimate( eg. Luiz Suarez). Fine, it was a competition but go by the rules. As you try to climb, people around you are seeking your downfall. There is a "Suarez" in our lives. He or she may be hiding at your work place, in your marriages, community, school or college, family or even in the church trying to do everything possible to prevent you from achieving that goal. Sometimes, their actions are so bitter and like the Ghana Uruguay game, they prevent you when you thought you were almost through. They are always looking for oppurtunities to bring you down.

The question I want to ask is that; Have you identified the "Suarez" in your life and if you have, what are you doing about him or her? Challenges come but they must be faced. Never run away from them. Identify them first, pray for them and know how to live with them. They have just one aim and that is to block you from hitting that target and taking that glory and I tell you that they will surely jubilate at your defeat. Shelley Long once said that "If you don't quit, and don't cheat, and don't run home when trouble arrives, you can only win".
I leave you with this quote from Ralph Waldo Emerson which says "Whatever you do, you need courage. Whatever course you decide upon, there are always someone to tell you that you are wrong. There are always difficulties arising that tempt you to believe your critics are right. To map out a course or action and follow it to an end requires some of the same courage that a soldier needs. Peace has its victories, but it takes brave men and women to win them".
I hope you enjoyed the lessons and thanks for reading. Stay blessed and have a successful weekend free from "Suarez".

What a day I had at the office today? So hectic with little time to rest or even eat. Anyway, that doestn't prevent us from learning, motivating each other and helping ourselves climb to the top. We are continuing our studies on the motivational lessons we can derive from events during the summer world cup.

Did you realize most of the "big teams" we were all expecting to win got eliminated on the way? If we are to ask ourselves which team we had in mind to win, most of us would have voted for Brazil, Argentina, Italy, France etc simply because their team had players who were generally accepted to be "stars". I doubt if some of you and even myself would have voted for my own small country, Ghana to reach the quater finals. Anyway, in life, we are all competing for something in one way or the other. It can be an interview, a game etc. Some of us don't even believe in ourselves to make it. We trust and look forward to others making it at our own expense. Forget about the so called "big names". They are human beings like you. There are some of us who are always afraid when we find ourselves in competitions and we end up crowning the opposition or our fellow competitors as winners even days before the competition itself starts.

As said in 1st Corinthians 9:24, run in such a way that YOU may win the prize. Don't conclude looking at the way you started. It may be poor but look to the prize that lies ahead. Put in your maximum effort. For all you should know, those you expect to win will miss it or even be eliminated on the way. Horses and chariots are prepared for war but as the Bible said, victory lies with the Lord. Stop crowning others because of their dressing, money, knowledge,fame etc and crown yourself. You deserve the crown to. I personally tipped Brazil or Argentina to win the world cup but finally, Spain won even after their poor start. A poor start doesn't mean all is over or lost as it happened to Spain when they lost their opening match. It is only an encouragement and a caution that you must put in more effort even though the final say lies with the Lord. We are all born winners so prepare to live a life of winners from today.

Have a blessed weekend and please eat very well before blowing my vuvuzela.
Stay blessed.

With so many imagination going on about how I look like in the mind of my readers, I decided to reveal myself today. This is a picture I took a week ago when I attended a wedding ceremony of a colleague I work with.

Do you want to know more about me, ask in the comment and I will tell you or you want more pictures? Don't worry, just ask.
With so many desires and wishes regarding who I want to be in future, I really want to be a motivational speaker and speak to both the youth and the old encouraging them to find a good thing in what they do or certain situations they find themselves in as well as to give them hope through the words of my mouth and put a smile back on their faces assuring them all is not lost and that there is someone up there who loves and cares for them. Its my heart desire now and achieving it will bring me joy. Anyway, I had a blessed weekend and I strongly believe yours was also a weekend of testimony.
Welcome to a new week, work hard, enjoy whatever you do, add value to someones life and stay blessed.

More ahead.......................

We thank God for a successful world cup for the first time on African soil. Which ever stage your country got to, I say congratulations. I hope we were not just following it for the fun sake but learning lessons as well. This post seems to bring our attention to the lessons that appeared indirectly before and during the game and see how we can learn from it as much as possible.

First, do you remember how France qualified for the world cup? I don't know how much involved you are in football but please for the sake of our studies find out how they qualified to play at this year's world cup. They qualified with a controversial goal when they played against Ireland. Now that was before the world cup. When they came for the world cup, it was a disgrace. They did not even win a single match and there were so many reports of confussion at their camp. This tells us that Gods time is the best. We should learn to do everything fairly. We need not to rush in life to get things at all cost. We may be pushed to use evil ways and after we've had what we want the disgrace that follows will be unbearable. When its not your time, simply wait. God knows best and why. No need to rush or lean on your own understanding. Do not cheat or steal your way through. In all your dealings, be free from cheat. If I were to be a player of Ireland playing with France by then, I can't imagine my reactions after Thiery Henry himself confirmed the handball.

In life, things that were attained through foul means always disappear into thin air with no trace and sometimes or usually they come with their own troubles but never leave with them. The disgrace they carry along is huge. The shame is heavy. God knows best. All we need is patience. When it is your time, why not, you will get it. It happens everywhere whether in the bus, school, in our homes and more especially at our various work places when we need promotion etc. We do everything including telling lies etc about people so that we can get the chance to get to the top position when they are eventually sacked. Life is a step-by-step affair. No need to rush my sister or brother and also on the other hand when you are robbed off something, it hurts but never curse the one who robbed you or say eveil about him or her but thank God because for all you should know, God is saving you from a calamity or trouble that lies ahead. When God opens the door, no one dare shut it!!!

To be continued...............

Once again we have come to another blessed weekend and am very happy. Am not lazy anyway but you agree with me sometimes we must leave all this office stuff behind and have a good rest.

Are you supprised at our title today? Please don't be but let us consider one or two things. Our thoughts. Everything we do in this world comes from our thoughts. Its our thinking that we translate into our actions. How vast do you think? Have you set imaginary boundries for yourself in life? Sometimes it amazes me when I hear people say as for me, I can't do this or that, I can't win that job looking at the level of people I attended the interview with, I can't build a house of this kind etc. These are all imaginary boundries we have set ourselves and surely they have an effect on how far we can go.

Until you change your style of thinking, until you break those imaginary walls around your thinking, until you desire to move further than what you see as your own limit in life you are bound to be where you are. T.S. Eliot once said something that "Only those who risk going too far can possibly find how far one can go" and one Charles F. Kettering also said "It's amazing what ordinary people can do if they set out without preconceived notions" Look, imaginations is more important than knowledge. Yes because in this world if you don't know, you don't know. Knowledge is limited but imagination encircles the world. Think more than what you do now. Strive to go further. Its free. Refuse and break those Jericho walls you have around your thoughts and dreams.

As Pete Zafra said, "People who are afraid to fail can never experience the joys of success" and I agree with him. Put the fears away. They are stopping you. They are building a wall around your thoughts and dreams and also always remember that no matter how small, acknowledge the achievement because that is a source of motivation for you.

Have a blessed weekend and catch you soon.

GOD: Angels, do you know what I was just thinking about?

ANGELS: What were you thinking about?

GOD: Christians seem to have forgotten what kind of power they have

available and the devil keeps on deceiving them!

ANGELS: God, exactly what are you driving at?

GOD: I have made my children in such a way that when the people of the world are sitting, they would be standing, when the world is standing, they will stand out, when the world stands out, my children must be outstanding and when the devil dares the world to be outstanding, my people will be the standards to be used!

JESUS CHRIST: They (Christians) are also forgetting the words in Ephesians 1:3.

GOD: Please read it out!


ANGEL: So what do we do now since the end is almost near?

HOLY SPIRIT: My Presence is still among men and I will teach and remind the Christians of all that we have discussed. I will also make sure that they pass this message on!

JESUS CHRIST: I will also keep on interceding for them & stand in for them even in their weaknesses.

GOD: I will also make sure that I give to all those who ask of me, seek me and try to find me... The blessings I have promised them through My Son, Jesus Christ will be delivered to all those who discover that I, Jehovah, am ready to bless them! Not because of any special things that they have done, but just because I LOVE THEM!

: I will also give all my followers who are willing to pass this conversation on, enough strength to carry on!

ANGELS: We are all backing THE TRINITY and even the devil cannot stop

us! How funny! Christians are finally taking over and......

DEVIL (eavesdropping behind the gates): I hope you all heard! I will deploy more troops (demons) and make sure the Christians pray less, read their Bibles less, preach less and Make sure this mail does not move anywhere so that they don't spread this message! Also.....

Todays post is dedicated to God from the depths of my heart. I just don't know what to say but am very grateful to God for all He has done for me. I live on the last floor of a four storey building. I look down on the street especially during weekends when am at home and I see the dead being marched to the cemetary for burial.

From the first day of January 2010, I started thinking of the number of days we need to cover to reach the middle of the year. In my thoughts, it wasn't going to be easy but unknown to me, as the Bible said, thousand days is like one day before God. Soon, we have covered six months and we are in the middle of the year 2010 and its amazing. God has been faithful to me and I thank Him so much. I thank Him for the life of my family, my work, my life, my friends and everybody who in one way or the other is connected to me. I thank God so much for the lifes of all my blog readers. Am very grateful to God.

Throughout the six months we have covered in the year, I cannot say I have been sin-free. Surely, I have backslided in one way or the other, I have remained unfaithful in many ways to God but God has been faithful to me. I thank God so much for everything he has done for me. I wish I can show how emotional I am on this post but I am very grateful to God. I could have died or gotten myself involved in an accident but am alive. I have not spent a single day on the hospital bed this year and even from last two years and its all by His grace.

Again to you my blog readers, I say a big thank you to God for your life, the life of your friends and that of your family. Am happy to have you around. Some of you comment and I say thank you. Others I know read but don't comment and I say thank you as well.
Its my prayer that God will see us through the remaining six months of this year.
Have a blessed weekend till we read from each other.
