YOUR ATTITUDE!

A decorated vehicle cannot be moved, directed and controlled without its respective engine, steer and brake.

Attitude is like the combined roles of the engine, the steer and the brake in a vehicle, they enhance movement, direction and control.

We mostly spend our time and resources to seek high education, change leadership and structures and multiply rules but we underestimate the power of our attitude.

You may be well resourced but without positive attitude, you cannot see any progress your life.

Do not only work to add value to your worth, work on your attitude as well.

Fr. Michael Amo Gyau

SHAPING AND WOUNDING

In as much as we gleefully utilise the positive side of reality, we should also learn to accept the unfavorable side.

The blade that shapes and beautifies you can also cut and wound you.

Those who heal you can also hurt you.

The mouth that hails you can also mock you.

Those who accept you can also reject you.

Your faithful friend can also become your fiercest foe.

Situation and environment can change people, do not be overly positive, expect and prepare for the dark side of people and situations.

MY DEADLY LOVER

A bait is mostly hidden in the delicacy of the fish to trap it.

Who and what we love can easily trap and destroy us than who and what we abhor.

There is natural vigilence and automatic self defence in the presence of the foe but we take things for granted in the threats of unsuspected friends and admirers.

Our lovers and admirers are like covered sword, they are equally and potentially deadly as naked sword.

Be cautious, not all love, intimacy, smiles, acceptance, compliments and advice are meant to build you, some are baits to trap you.

INEVITABLE PROCESS

A sown seed does not bear fruits overnight, it takes time to go through several stages.

Life is a process, it takes patience, diligence and discipline to reach our set goal.

So far as things are moving on snail’s pace does not mean you cannot get where you want to.

So far as things are not happening in your favour does not mean you cannot make it.

Success is an end point of gradual, boring but useful process characterised by ups and downs.

Do not rush, avoid shortcuts, follow the stipulated process of life. You will surely get there.

THE APT KEY

Boxing bouts are not won only by the heaviness of the punch, but also how fast and apt the punch meets the weak points of the opponent.

Having good ideas does not make you wise and useful, it depends on how appropriate you implement them.

Harsh words and violence may seem to be the best key to unlock the door to your problems but they are not always the best option.

A blazing fire is not quenched by fire but water.

Humility, patience and prayer may not be the attractive but they are mostly the best keys to unlock the door to our problems.

Strive to know the apt key to unlock the door to your challenges.

BE REAL

A society that gives heightened recognition to feigned perfection produces counterfeit personalities.

Many are living to meet the expectations of others, not to uphold their true identity.

The world mostly admires and celebrates pretentious characters rather than those who reveal their real identity.

Learn to be real, pretention is attractive but it is self deception.

LURING HALF TRUTHS

It is easier to convince many people with half- truth than the whole truth.

Half truth is mostly attractive and welcoming than the whole truth.

A wooing tool is mostly the best sustaining tool.

When you use falsehood to win someone’s mind and heart, you will need a multitude of complicated falsehoods to sustain that mind and heart.

Never trade on half- truths no matter how profitable it might help propel your business, profession, ministry or relationship.

Love and proclaim the whole truth notwithstanding the burden it might temporary impose on you, for it is better to be scorned as a sincere person than to be a celebrated deceiver.

FREE BUT COSTLY

We pay nothing to be ignorant but it is highly expensive.

If you want to disarm, robotly control, manipulate and even destroy people, keep them in ignorance.

Ignorance is mostly destructive, it deafens, blinds, cages, cripples, makes us vulnerable and highly prone to abuses.

Ignorance makes us take right as wrong and wrong as right.

Ignorance makes us fearless in the midst of dangers and creates fear where there is nothing to fear.

Ignorance is not only costly, it is also an enslavement and deadly.

Invest your time and resources to seek knowledge, it is a source of security and a catalyst to peace and progress.

GOOD BUT IRRELEVANT

Many fruits are edible but not all are good for us.

What might be nutritious to me might be poisonous to you due to our different bodily make up.

Not all good guidelines and suggestions are relevant and useful to your situation.

Do not just use a recommendation because it best worked for others, it might worsen your situation.

Be critical to pick the grains from the chaff and aptly apply it your peculiar circumstance.
