THE VALUABLE ASSETS OF ALL TIMES

THE MOST VALUABLE ASSET OF ALL TIMES: 
Your most useful asset isn't a head full of knowledge, but a heart full of love, an ear ready to listen and a hand willing to help others. 
Always be considerate of people's feelings, sometimes there are reasons why people act the way they do. 
Probably, who knows if you had gone through the same condition, you might have acted same way. 
Don't mix bad words with bad mood; you might have several opportunities to change a mood but you'll never get the opportunity to replace the words you've spoken. 
Hurting someone can be as easy as throwing a stone in the sea but do you have any idea how deep that stone can go? 
Respect people's feelings, even if it doesn't mean anything to you, it could mean everything to them. 
How you make others feel says a lot about you. 
Hurting people hurt others. 
Don't be quick to judge, you need to understand that person's feelings and thoughts and what they might be going through. 
Be sensitiv…

THINGS THAT CAUSES REGRETS

THINGS THAT CAUSE REGRET AT OLD AGE
When younger we make various choice's without the future in mind. Sometimes those choices bite us in our mid-life. These are some of the things one might regret when they're older.
1. Marrying the wrong person
When you're young, check your motives for marrying. Don't marry to copy your peers, or for social standing or out of pressure. Marry for love and companionship, marry the right person, marry your best friend. For if you marry the wrong person or for the wrong reasons, you will have to put up with that person the rest of your life. Things might get worse between you two; then depression, physical abuse, affairs, pain, shame, court cases, bitterness will define your mid-life years all because you chose the wrong one. Things will get worse when children are involved. Make the right choice of a spouse when you are young.
2. The opportunities you did not seize
When you are younger many doors will open, you will get many chances. Many you…

SO MANY PEOPLE

SO MANY PEOPLE CAN BE RESPONSIBLE FOR YOUR SUCCESS BUT YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR YOUR FAILURE!
The training you expose and give your mind and body to is what they respond to. 
However, the training of your spirit is of utmost importance. 
Give yourself training through the Spirit by the Word. 
Teach yourself how and what to think. 
Until you come to understand the connection between your outer experiences and your inner thoughts, you will be a victim of life. 
You must focus your mind; discipline and channel your mind in the direction of your purpose. 
Use your tongue to direct your mind. 
You own your mind, your mind doesn't own you. 
You have to change your relationship to your mind. 
Remember that you are the thinker of your thoughts. 
Be the thinker, not the thought. 
The power is with the thinker, not the thought. Be the one to give your thoughts what to dwell upon.

POUSE AND PONDER

PAUSE AND PONDER!
How would you talk to your brother if you knew that would be your last time of hearing from him?
How would you treat your sister if you are certain you would never see her again?
What kind of words would you use on your mother or your father if you would be speaking to any of them for the last time in your life?
What would be your last word before you hang the phone finally on a friend if he or she was going to die the next hour?
What's going to be your attitude on that person you call an enemy if his or her life was about to end?
How will you be addressing the world if you were to make your last and final speech today?
What would be the urgent amendment you would make today in your life if this was to be your last opportunity?
What prayers would you be praying if you were to say your last prayers this minute?
Can't you see we would treat one another better, kinder and with more understanding if we should consider these questions more critically?
Can't you see that…

THIS WORLD IS FAKE

*THE WORLD IS FAKE*
My money, my house, my car, my children, my certificates, my job, my husband, my wife, my families, my clothes, my SHOE..... My ! My!! My !!! What is this life worth?
A man was informed about the death of his father, but he tarried. When his father started smelling, their neighbours took his father to the mortuary for preservation.
A week later, he went to the mortuary to see the corpse of his father. When he was about to enter the place, there was a poster placed at the entrance of the mortuary, of which no one can escape it. It read:
“ WE WERE LIKE YOU BEFORE, BUT WE ARE HERE NOW. ”
The young boy read it, but it didn't make any sense to him.
He went inside, checked the corpse of his father, after a few minutes, he made his step out.
 As he was about to step outside, he saw another inscription placed on a strategic location, which no one will es…

RUN YOUR OWN RACE AND WISH OTHERS WELL

RUN YOUR OWN RACE AND WISH OTHERS WELL
BEN CARSON WROTE:
I was jogging this morning and I noticed a person about 1/2 a kilometer ahead. I could tell he was running a little slower than me and I thought, good, I shall try to catch him. I had about a kilometer before I needed to turn off. So I started running faster and faster.
Every block, I was gaining on him just a little bit. After just a few minutes I was only about 100 meters behind him, so I really picked up the pace and pushed myself. You would have thought I was running in the last leg of an Olympic competition. I was determined to catch him.
Finally, I did it! I caught and passed him. On the inside, I felt so good. "I beat him" Of course, he didn't even know we were racing.
After I passed him, I realized I had been so focused on competing against him that I had missed my house. I had gone nearly six blocks past my house and I had to turn and go back.
Isn't that what happens in life when we focus on competing with c…

He Wrote a book at 40

*HE WROTE A BOOK AT 40 AND THIS HAPPENED ....*  If you read this till the end, you will make a powerful decision in your Life today.
There was this poor man who *wrote a book at the age of 40* and decided to launch it on his Birthday.
He had no money to fund the launch and so *he decided to seek help from a millionaire* in his community.
He made a visit to the Millionaires home and after they exchanged pleasantries, he told his host what brought him.
The Millionaire told him to take out a piece of paper and pen.  He said, " I will give you a test. If you pass it, I will give you the money you need and if you fail, I will still give you the money"
He then told him to write down the names of 10 people who could give him 10k each for his book during the launch.
Surprisingly, the man could not write even 3 names.
Now, take a glass of water and let me show you something..
It is not enough to have talent and skills. You must understand the power of building valuable relationship.
It was a …

A LESSON TO CHERISH

Fatima, a primary school teacher, was transferred to a different school and immediately appointed as a class teacher of a class five class. On her first day in her class, she noticed that a boy named Musa was different from the rest of the pupils because he was always lonely, out of place, dirty and never used to do homework. Fatima also realized that most pupils in the class had a negative attitude towards him.  
Fatima decided to investigate and find out the problem. She decided to review the file containing the records for Musa. She was very surprised by what she found out. 
Musa's class one teacher wrote and said "Musa is a good pupil with a ready laugh. He does his homework neatly and has many friends".
The class two teacher wrote, "Musa is a good pupil with a ready laugh. He does his homework neatly but he is troubled because his mother has a terminal illness and life at home must be a struggle"
The class three teacher wrote, "his mother's death has …

THE PROBLEM WITH AFRICA

*THE PROBLEM WITH AFRICA*

One of the Rebranders noted that when an average African gets to
the top, he wants to destroy the ladder by which he climbed so that
he alone would be at the top. This was apparent when Obasanjo, a
former president of Nigeria wanted a third tenure and tried to
adjust the constitution to achieve that. Mugabe of Zimbabwe
ignored the constitution and wanted to rule till he was 100 and then
hand over to his wife. Biya of Cameroon is still in power, although
his strength is failing in his old age. It is in almost every African
Nation. When Africans attain power, they would do everything to
hold on to it and never relinquish it till death.
While you might be accusing only political leaders, let me bring it
home. You can notice the same trend in government staff who continue to adjust their ages so that they will not retire for the next
generation. We can see this same trend in business people who
hide their business secrets so that they ca…

COPIED FROM HAMZA OLAITAN:
------------------------------

If you go to the business/first class lounge of any airline at the Abuja International Airport, you will probably see people you believed were sworn enemies from different political parties shaking hands and embracing as they prepare to fly out on a trip paid for by money meant for your roads and hospitals.

Go to the Hilton in Abuja and see them laughing and dining together while their communications teams are releasing statements that inflame tensions between you and I.

As you struggle with terrible roads and battle your way home to put on your generator with the little fuel you have left so you can charge your phone, go online and insult people who don’t support your candidate; pause for once and think. You’re a pawn in a bigger game. As OBJ’s about turn on his former VP has confirmed again, the Nigerian elite have no permanent friends or enemies. They know only themselves; they don’t care about you. The Party is…

SKY THOUGHT

SKY Thought:

Never under-estimate others, and never 
over-estimate yourself... You will always be either surprised, or disappointed! Make an effort to be confident and humble!

Stop talking about other people, and talk less about things... If you want to make a difference, make an effort to discuss ideas and real issues!

You should not be preoccupied with removing your clothes...You were born naked, and you will be resurrected naked.. Make an effort to
reveal the content of your mind and heart!

3. Albert Einstein (1879-1955)

A Thought For The Day

*Words on Marble**CHINUA ACHEBE*_A man who calls his kinsmen to a feast does not do so to redeem them from starving. They all have food in their own houses. When we gather together in the moonlight village ground, it is not because of the moon. Every man can see it in his own compound. We come together because it is good for kinsmen to do so. Therefore let us continue with the team spirit and enjoy the power of togetherness. Let's smile not because we don't have problems but because we are stronger than the problems_...
Remain blessed
