Corona on the run

Corona virus is real;
It is dangerous;
It has caused much damage;
And much damage it still
Will cause,
But life continues;
We are taking measures;
Have changed many habits;
Have to maintain discipline;
To keep the deadly virus
Off our sleeves;
We cannot afford
To lose hope;
We cannot afford to be pessimistic;
We have God to turn to;
And that in absolute trust;
That he will protect us;
And in due time
We’ll find a solution
To our problem.
Corona will be on the run.
God’s time is the best.

Prayer to stop corona virus

God, Almighty Father,
We are overwhelmed;
Corona virus worries;
We are worried, afraid,
And confused;
No one knows what lies
Ahead for humanity;
Only you can save us;
Please, help us Lord;
Stop this thing from spreading;
Stop this thing from taking human lives;
Keep us safe;
We know you can do it;
We humbly submit our prayer
Through Christ our Lord,
Amen!

The opposition is an asset to the government

If you surround yourself only with people who think like you, agree with you on every issue, fear to contradict whatever you say, because they like to conform, you do yourself no good. In fact, you do yourself a disservice.

Do you know why?

Because, even if you are wrong, they will only agree with you.

If you are heading for a precipice, they will only praise you and keep praising you until you take a dive of no return.

Dangerous are people who agree to everything you say. Even more dangerous are people who praise you for every move you take.

There are people who will praise you for going right. If you suddenly realize you are going the opposite direction and make an about turn, they will praise you for your wisdom. If along the way you make another about turn, they will still praise you.

You must beware of such people. They are dangerous. They will not help you. They will destroy you.

It is good that you be surrounded by both people who support you and people who oppose you.

A government does better when it has an opposition than when it doesn’t.

An opposition helps the government to sit up.

An opposition helps the government to sharpen its wits.

An opposition helps the government to see the other side of the coin.

Hence, the opposition helps those in power to perform better.

The opposition helps the government to obtain better results.

I see people who do not like to see anybody around them who does not agree with them.

Don’t discard them. Keep them but be vigilant.

The opposition is not a liability, but an asset to the government.

Build a good team

Team is better than solo;
If you want to succeed,
I encourage you
To build a team;
You will find it better;
Train it to perform well
When you are present,
And when you are absent,
Then you can tell yourself:
“Well done!”
That is a real sign
Of success.
Let your team
Not perform well
Only when you’re present;
Let it perform well,
Even when you are absent.
Such is a good team.

At what age should you bury your dreams?

I haven’t met anybody with a normal mind, who doesn’t like to be great.

Greatness is the aspiration of everybody.

People differ in the degree of greatness they desire, but all is they want to be great.

The desire for greatness is universal.

Of course, not everyone achieves their dream to be great.

A good many people do, though, but the majority never get to the threshold of greatness.

Don’t say it’s because God created some people to be great and created others not to be great. God has not done any such thing. God does not discriminate. He doesn’t favour anybody.

God who has created us all keeps the door open to everyone to get through to where they want to go in life.

It is true that if he doesn’t want it, it cannot happen. He is the architect of all the good that happens in the world.

But we have to choose our destination and bring him on board as a Senior Partner.

That is when he will provide the necessary help for us to get the results that we want .

The issue becomes difficult when we do not know what we want; do not decide what we want; are not determined enough to get it, above all do not bring God in as our Senior Partner; and do not stay long enough on it for the fruits to get ripe for harvesting.

People give up too early and miss the wonderful blessings which would have been theirs.

Time is a big determining factor in achievement. You can start and expect to climb to the top of the ladder the same day.

Anyway, this could happen as an exception to the rule, otherwise you always have to give time for your plans to mature; or your efforts to bear fruit.

Waiting time is not wasted time. Waiting is a necessary knot on the success chain. There is a time to plant and a time to harvest the crops; a time to work and a time to stay and wait. We must give time to the plants to bear fruit and mature.

Every success story has an introduction, the body and the conclusion. The body is usually the longest part. If you make the body one paragraph as the introduction and conclusion, you will fail.

There are many people who have gone on retirement and have produced their best work.

What if they had gone and packed their bags home with their dreams in them?

Of course, the dreams would have died.

The question arises: at what age should one bury ones dreams?

My answer is at no age.

If you are already looking at it to be too late, I stand to say it is not. All the chances are available to you to make your mark.

No one can argue the fact that you may not be as energetic as you were when you were much younger, but you definitely have other abilities waiting to be tapped.

Hence, whatever your age, define what you want; define the best way you know to get there, resolve to get there and set out for it.

We can confidently assert that even on retirement as you may be , the sky remains your springboard. That is definitely mine. No doubt about that.

If this belief doesn’t produce the expected results, it would at least have made me feel better, which in reality, is what actually matters.

30 attributes of St. Joseph, the second greatest Saint in heaven

In the month of March, the Church celebrates one of the greatest Saints, Saint Joseph, honoured spouse of our Blessed Mother Mary and foster father of our Lord, Jesus Christ.

We are joining the Church in our own way, to celebrate the life of the silent, humble but very great figure.

It is not enough

It is good to have money;
But it is not enough
To have money;
How you get it matters;
You must get it through morally acceptable means;
How you use it matters;
Use it well;
Use it for good;
It is not enough
To have food to eat,
You must mind
What kind of food it is;
It is not enough
To have peace,
Let it be true peace;
Solid peace;
Valid peace;
Authentic peace;
Earned at a bearable cost;
It is not enough to win;
The cost of winning
Should not make losing
A better option;
It is not enough
To be a leader;
You must be a good leader.
