No one knows or perhaps will ever know how the world and all that is in it came into existence. It is perhaps a question that will never be answered. However one thing historians seem to agree on is where mankind or what we term “human beings” originated. And that is on the continent of Africa. Whether we like it or not we are more alike than we are different. If we should believe the history of mankind it means we all have one common ancestor who lived in Africa many many years ago. Africa is the motherland. We all have an African connection, unbelievable though it may seem.
In everyone lies the capacity for greatness. Know your strength, the things you are good at and work at improving them. Your mind is a powerful tool. When used wisely you can achieve things that at first might have seemed impossible. Positive thinking can make a difference in everyone’s life. Learn to master the art of positive thinking.
No matter how busy we are we must take time to give God thanks for his merciea towarda us. Without his grace we could not survive in this world. Today let us give him thanks and praise for the past week and pray for his guidance to get us through another week. Have a Happy and peaceful Sunday.
What do you do when your plans go asunder,
What do you do when they all come to naught?
Don’t blame yourself, it’s okay to blunder,
Take heed, in life some mistakes are lessons taught.
Stop for a moment and cry if you must,
Smile through the teardrops and try to be brave,
Pick up the pieces and brush off the dust,
Then you move forward to battle the next wave.
Life is a battlefield where the toughest survive,
Don’t dwell on the problems and forget to have fun,
For though there are problems you still have to strive
To rise each morning and greet the rising sun.
Don’t let life problems get you down
Rise up stand tall and never frown.
This is my attempt at writing a sonnet. Thanks for reading. Please tell me what you think of it.
Many people will walk into your life, but only true friends will leave footprints in your heart!
“Be careful what you set your heart upon or you will surely have it.” I have found that there is some truth to this quote. You can apply it to your life as a tool of empowerment. Think about what you want to achieve in life. What is your greatest desire. What it it that you yearn for? Set your heart upon that think or things. Never lose focus on those things you desire the most and you will see a manifestation of them in your life.
One of the most important steps towards empowerment is having a reasonable belief in yourself and your abilities. Self-confidence plays a key role in your growth and development as an individual.
One of the main reasons people fail to evolve and grow is due to a lack of self confidence. It is not for a lack of strength. As individuals we all have our weak moments. Confidence is believing that in spite of what you might come up against you will overcome and achieve success.
