Get the desired results

In my village it is said that when you sow seeds in your farm you do not go  digging them up or watching them everyday to see if they have started germinating. You allow them to germinate when the time is ripe for them to do so. 

Seeds germinate and grow at their pace. No matter how anxious you may be to see them grow that will not speed up their growth.  

The only thing to do to ensure their  proper growth is to make sure that the soil is properly prepared, that the seeds are good seeds and that the climatic and weather conditions are right. 

We can relate this to our goals in life. When we sow the seeds of our goal, we do not expect them to grow at lightening speed. They cannot germinate and grow when the time is not ripe.

No matter how anxious we may be to see them grow they will not grow faster because of our anxiety.

You have to create appropriate conditions for the seeds of your dreams to germinate and grow healthily and bear the desired fruits. Stop worrying! Stop fretting around!

If you do what is right for your dreams to come true, they will do so at the right time.

Our take-home from this is do what is right and you will get the results you desire.

Marvelous 

How do you imagine the world to look like in terms of advancement one hundred years from now? I believe the marvels will be beyond anyone’s imagination. It can only be so if we consider the incredible things that today’s young people are doing. I fully agree, there is no limit to what the human mind can do. I find every new generation to be more brilliant than the preceding one. Hence, though the marvels that we see bid our imaginations, I can confidently say we haven’t seen anything yet. 

What  this means to me is

we (you and I) can each do marvels in our different spheres in life. This being true, there’s just no excuse for one selling oneself short. Therefore, I  invite all my friends (and this includes you) to resolve now to make the most of our possibilities and create our own marvels. Are you ready?

If wishes were horses

If wishes were horses,
I would enter your heart
And bring it back to where it was;
For now it is kilometers away
From where it was.
But wishes are not horses;
So I must learn to cope
With the new you;Such is life;
Sometimes the weather is cold;
Sometimes the weather is hot;
But we must learn to cope
Since wishes are not horses.

Extraordinary

Don’t do it in an ordinary way;
Ordinary will not take you far;
Ordinary will not make you stand out;
Ordinary will drown you in the crowd;
Be extraordinary;
Do it in an extraordinary way;
Extraordinary is the way;
Extraordinary will make you stand out;
Extraordinary is your ladder to the top.
Whatever you go for,
Put in it an extraordinary touch.

Local

Many words end with ‘ocal’;
The first I’ve found is local;
The second is vocal;
And the third is focal.
Which other word ends with ‘ocal’?

Local

I like you because…

I like you because

You accept 

When something is good;

I like you

Because 

You are humble;

I like you 

Because 

You know how to appreciate;

I like you

Because

You know how to encourage;

I like you 

Because 

You know how to motivate me;

I like you 

Because 

You know 

How to make me feel fine;

I like you 

Because

You have a great heart,

And are making the world greater 

Than you found it.

What you think you cannot do

What you think you cannot do,

You can do;

Believe me;

What you think you cannot do,

You can do;

If you want to do it, 

But think you cannot do it,

I want to say 

You can do it;

Go now 

And do 

What you’ve been thinking 

You cannot do.
