Do you know anybody who has blown or who blew their life?
There are people who are doing extremely well in life and people have a lot of hope in them but unfortunately they become reckless or negligent and do one thing that shatters them. All the promise goes off in flames.
Do you know anyone like this? Maybe someone who lost it through an unscrupulous search for money; ill-gotten wealth, infidelity; tax evasion; violence against women, etc.
Can you share what you know? Tell us about somebody you know who has blown their life and how it happened.
No condition is permanent in this world;
You may be down today and up tomorrow;
Many start off last and end up first.
To be down is not the end of the world
For you could soon be up;
Many are down today who will be up tomorrow;
God’s world is full of mystery;
Where the answers come is not always obvious.
Our minds are too small
To understand all that is going on;
Put your trust in Him that knows all;
And many miracles in one minute creates;
Have faith in Him that can do and undo;
Things may look like going wrong;
But all along going right.
This is life;
This is our world;
No condition is permanent in this world.
Human rights, human rights;
Where is the human rights?
When the poorest people,
Who come from the poorest countries,
Do the meanest jobs in the world,
And earn the meanest salaries in the world;
And live the worst lives in the world;
How has their dignity been defended?
How have their rights been protected?
You talk of human rights;
You talk loudest as well;
Where is the human rights?
Is it human rights to
Just because they are poor?
Is it human rights to
Just because they are
Different from you?
Is it human rights
Or human slavery?
Those who talk the most in the world about the need to respect human rights may, knowingly or unknowingly, be the greatest violators of human rights.(Tweet)
I read a poem by Gordon Stewart titled “The Worst jobs in America” and it set my mind thinking.
I ask the question: who does the worst jobs in America? Are they Americans? Who does the worst jobs in the developed world? Are they the citizens of those countries? Who is doing the worst jobs in Canada today? Are they Canadians?
You know the answers to these questions. What are we talking about when we sing complains about human rights abuse? Why are the worst jobs done only by people from some parts of the world? Is that human rights respect?
What happens to their dignity when they are humiliated thus? How much do they earn when they do these filthy jobs? And where do they live? What life-style do they live after they do these filthy jobs on the most meager salaries in the world?
Where are the human rights defenders? How serious is the world about defending the human rights of the poor and weak?
Do you drink from the spring of wisdom of great minds? Those who drink from the spring of wisdom of great minds become wise; and do great things. From the spring of wisdom of Theodore Roosevelt, I got this:
“Perhaps there is no more important component of character than steadfast resolution. The boy who is going to make a great man, or is going to count in any way in after life, must make up in his mind not merely to overcome a thousand obstacles, but to win in spite of a thousand repulses and defeats.”
These are words of wisdom, indeed!. To drink to your fill from Roosevelt’s spring of wisdom, read them everyday; and take them into consideration as you go about life.
Many young people do not listen to their parents. If you are a young person, do you listen to your parents? If you are a parent, do your children pay attention to what you tell them?
It is important to pay attention to your parents.Hear what the bible says:
“Pay attention to what your father and mother tell you. my son. Their teaching will improve your character as a handsome turban or a necklace improves your appearance” Prov. 4:13).</strong
A word to a wise child is enough.
“Plan carefully what you do, and whatever you do will turn out right.” (Prov. 4:26).
Planning is important. If you want to do anything, you need to take time and plan it. Take time and prepare for it well and you will find yourself doing it very well.
Excellent preparation leads to excellent execution.
Poor preparation leads to poor execution.
No preparation leads to uncertain execution.
Those who achieve big in life give enough time to planning. They get themselves ready before they start to execute.
If you do not take time to plan the things you do, start now and maker sure you take time to plan whatever you want to do. You shall marvel at the way things will start to work out for you.
“Be careful how you think; your life is shaped by your thoughts” (Proverbs 4.23).
This verse can change your life.
If you have been allowing negative thoughts to dominate your thinking, this verse is for you. Your life will be marked by negativity if you allow negative thoughts to fill your mind.
Many people hear these words and do not take them serious and continue to fill their minds with negative thoughts. The result is they experience many failures in life.
Start now to turn all negative thoughts that come to your mind into positive thoughts. Give no room to negative thoughts in your mind.
If you do this you will become a positive person; and your success will be guaranteed.This is not an easy thing to do, however, but you must try and keep trying until you succeed.
Life is meant to be enjoyed. Do you enjoy it?
Many people do not enjoy it. Instead, they experience an unbroken chain of difficulties, trials, and sorrows.The reason is simple: they go about it the wrong way. They make wrong priorities and pursue wrong goals; in wrong ways; or they allow others to make life difficult for them.
Of course, you cannot do this and expect success to smile at you.
If you want to do anything, find out how it is done; and do it. Success will smile at you.Also do not allow anybody to prevent you from making life a joy.
Did you know that life was governed by laws. Of course, it is.
If you break a law of life, you will pay for it. If you respect it, you will be rewarded. It is the same for success. If you respect the laws of success, you will succeed. If you break them you will fail.
Success does not just come.It comes when you respect the laws of success. It is necessary that you know these laws and respect them.The result will be joy because you will succeed.
