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.

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.

THE DAILY PILL

The flop of a professional is a cautioning light to the amateur.

The fall of the strong is a warning to the weak.

When the strong are struggling to make it, it is indicative to that the weak should intensify their efforts.

Misfortunes, mistakes and difficulties of others are not opportunities to criticise, judge and condemn, they are rather golden chances to learn from.

Do not be over confident in your current state, No human condition is lasting. 

You can easily cause your downfall and even great disaster from the very mistake you are strongly blaming others for, if you do not learn from it.

*Greatness is not only attained by keenly imitating the life principles and lifestyle of  great people but also learning from the misfortunes and the struggles of the less fortunate.*

You can be energized and motivated from a discouraging situations based on how you accept them.

May you always learn and grow from any misfortune that comes your way.

God bless you.

THE DAILY PILL

The painful cut that hurts us is from the knife that heals us.

The most hurting and painful rejection normally comes from people who gladly accept us.

The most destructive condemnation normally comes from those who highly commend us.

Do not be carried away by the acceptance, praise and kindness of human beings, who are easily changed by circumstances.

When a set of teeth is prepared to eat flesh, chewing bones is likely to cause toothache.

The reality of life is not always fair and constant.

Human beings are not predictable.

Therefore, do not always coach your mind to only receive the best, the worst can also happen, so prepare for it.

*Expecting the worst is not only a mark of pessimism, it is a precautionary measure.*

You do not live in an ideal world so give allowances for rejection, betrayals, hatred and disappointments.

God bless and keep you.

THE DAILY PILL

When our perception magnifies a mound before us into a mountain, impossibility becomes our hallmark. 

When we see impossibility in everything we see and do,

Our zeal to succeed is lowered and it can even quenched.

Our potentials are veiled and our abilities are underrated.

Our weaknesses are magnified and our strengths are reduced.

And we are eventually chained into perpetual fears and inferiority.

Impossibility does not only make a simple task too complex and burdensome, it also discourages us from making an attempt.

Your fears, failure, difficulties and anxieties could be the products from your pessimistic mentality.

*Equating difficulty to impossibility is as discouraging and destructive as self – curse.*

Your abilities are hugely pivoted on your optimism. 

May you always see the possible and positive side of reality.

Remain in the peace of God.

THE DAILY PILL

Location does not determine the taste of a particular food. The taste of food normally changes with the change of the method of cooking and the change of the quality and quantity of the ingredients.

Changing your location does not merely improve your worth, it also depends on how you discipline yourself and utilize the resources at your disposal.

Changing your location does not merely heighten your chances of succeeding, it also depends on how you  make wise use of any opportunity that comes your way.

Sometimes, ignorance forces us to waste a lot of time, energy and resources to put in place some fruitless measures that do not in any way enhance our growth and success.

Changing partners, policies, friends, location, job and even goals are not always the best solution, upgrading your knowledge about what you do and the positive change of attitude will also help.

Do not only focus on changing people and structures, change yourself first to become a potent instrument of change.

Remain in the love of God.
