Do not only seek to be inspired, seek to be challenged also…

We do not get the finest palm oil from palm fruits in cold water. We rather get it from the crushing of the fruits and the activity of hot water on the crushed palm fruits.

Motivational and inspiring words are normally read and  cherished than challenging and corrective words, which are normally unattractive.

We will never grow when we always want to be inspired but bitterly hate to be challenged.

We may not progress in life because we only enjoy the company of those who are ever ready to second and even uphold any word and proposal from us without any objection.

We might not be comfortable with those who challenge us but they normally open minds and eyes to some realities and keep us on our toes to bring the best out of us.

Do not only focus on those who will help you to move but also those who will challenge and correct your movement.

God bless you and have a fruitful week.

The DAILY PILL

When we begin a battle with the total display and usage of all our weapons and skills, we can easily and quickly defeat a weaker opponent but our inability to defeat the opponent will energize the opponent to capitalize on our shortage of weapons and skills to defeat us.
Our efforts are reduced when we lower our zeal and our interest.

Failure does not only spring from lack of appropriate tools, resources and energy but  lack of skills to make appropriate use of  what we have.

You need a careful and conscious planning to persevere in life. 

Do not just begin, know the distance to be covered and how best you can distribute accordingly, your time energy and resources.

Fr. Michael Amo Gyau

You are valuable because of your humanness..

Water is tasteless.

Water is odourless and

Water is colourless.

But water is always one of the basic and essential necessities of life. 

Water is basic to life because of its substance, not because of what is added to improve the taste and colour.

Our worth lies in our humanness, not merely on what we add  to improve our beauty and dignity.

You are valuable because you are a human being, not because of what we have  and where we are.

Never look down on yourself because of what you lack in life.

Value and accept yourself, it is one of the certain means to self improvement and greatness.

God bless you .

Subscribe quality, not popularity…..

‚ÄčA product with high publicity does not make it the best in the market. The content of the product determines its quality not its publicity.

Having a huge audience to listen to your message does not merely  make you a great and finest speaker. Best speakers spring from the quality of their message not the popularity of their messages enjoy.

Do not be carried away by your fame. What makes us famous is what matters most.

As there are fake products with high publicity, there are also unadvertised good products.

If you are fortunate to come to the limelight do not look down on those whose great works are unseen and unheard. 

Do not just trust, accept and support personalities, products, ideologies and messages due to their popularity but due to their quality and relevance.

May you not confuse popularity with quality.

God bless you.

THE DAILY PILL

If you have no food to feed people, do not give them appetizer.

If you cannot keep the company of others, try as much as possible to avoid occasions that will lure them to yourself and make them comfortable in your company.

It is very prudent not to begin what you know very well that you cannot sustain and even complete.

Investing your time, energy and resources to begin without completing is not only a waste but such venture becomes dangerous and open to abuse.

Uncompleted statement is more dangerous than silence; it is open to manipulation.

Uncompleted building can be a death trap.

Be very careful of what you start. Inability to end can tarnish your image and even put others in uncomfortable situation.

Do not rush to start,

Know your goal.

Count the cost and your resources. 

Weigh your strengths, weaknesses. 

And prepare for the challenges ahead.

May the Lord continue to strengthen you.

The best goalkeeper cannot keep clean sheet throughout his career. He will have records of goals conceded and as well as goals prevented.

The winning team does not only have records of victories, it also has records of defeats.

No matter how strong and powerful you are, you cannot always win all aspects of life.

You cannot always be right. Sometimes, you will be far from right even in your strongest conviction.

One of our greatest source of anxiety is to present ourselves as uniquely spotless whiles we veil our dark spots. 

We are likely to shift the goal post  and even act out of malice to keep the false image of ourselves intact.

The more we present false image of impalpability of ourselves, we unconsciously unveil our shortfalls to the public.

Be of yourself, be who you are but never enslave yourself by forcing to be who you are not.

Remain in the peace of God.

Fr. Michael Amo Gyau

Complain only to construct.

Complains do not always correct, they normally conclude and condemn the targeted person or group. 
The more we baselessly complain, the more we frighten our neighbours to make them feel uncomfortable in our company.

It is not bad to complain but baseless and ceaseless complain is a poisonous dose that destroys relationships.

When our complains are not guarded, we become a thorn in the flesh of people and eventually lose our love ones.

We lose track and zeal to progress in life when we only invest all our time to complain on people and things we cannot change.

May you only complain only to construct rather than to destroy.

God bless you.

Fr. Michael Amo Gyau

Start with the little in hand

A spark from a matches stick is far useful than the combination of unlit firewood.

The quality of your gift is not based on its size and quantity, it is based on its usage and usefulness.

It is more productive to sow a  handful of grains than to hoard a sackful of grains.

Never grief on the quantity of your talent, principal and strength. We are normally evaluated and judged not by the quantity of what we have been endowed but by the qualitative usage of what we have been endowed.

No one is instantly born  great, we gradually move towards greatness when we make use of what have and things around us. Greatness usually starts with littleness.

Do not waste your time to groan and to complain on size of your gifts, use what you have, it is a surer way to success and greatness.

God be with you.

Fr. Michael Amo Gyau

Attitude determines gratitude.

Showing appreciation does not merely mean that we have everything we need but we gratefully value what we have.

We do not need to have enough before we can show appreciation.

Our attitude towards what we have and what we want determines our level of gratitude.

When we value what we want more than what we have, we will be blind to our blessing and heighten our awareness of what we lack and eventually make us ungrateful.

May you always value who you are and what you have in order to be grateful to God and others.

Fr. Michael Amo Gyau

You cannot always do it all alone.

No matter the level of experience of a swimmer, he does not rescue himself but normally saved by others, when he is getting drown.

The strength of bolt and knot is not only dependent on their size but also in the strength of the hand that tightens them.

No matter how powerful, intelligent, strong and experienced we are, we sometimes need the push of others. 

There are some things we cannot successfully and genuinely do it all by ourselves.

Single handedly ascending the throne without public approval is usurpation, you need others to make your position genuine.

Always judging yourself to be the best and trumpeting your good deeds normally lead to pride, let others evaluate and praise you.

Your greatness and dignity are not only based on how you see and judge yourNo matter the level of experience of a swimmer, he does not rescue himself but normally saved by others, when he is getting drown.

Your greatness and dignity are not only based on how you see and judge yourself but also on how people see and evaluate you.

Do not be proud, your success, position and dignity might have risen from the diligence of others. You will at certain point in your life need others to be who you are.

May you always value the gifts of others in your life.
