A legendary man

LET’S“How can the world ever fail to honor legendary Nelson Mandela, a man who, for almost thirty years, gnashed his teeth in jail in his own country, but never gave up his dream of leading his people out of bondage. In the end, he made it. His people were freed from the pangs of apartheid; and he became the first African to rule his country” (Ngobesing Suh Romanus, The Wonders of Wisdom).The glittering side of humans often hides the

Defeat it.

What do you do when you meet with an obstacle as you pursue your goal? Do you back out? That is what the losers do. The winners do not. They put more effort; more force to overcome the obstacle.They muster courage if the situation calls for courage. They defeat the obstacle. They do not allow the situation to defeat them.

Remember this today when you face a challenge.

You may face challenges in your studies, at your work place, in your business, to speak in public, to face someone and resolve a problem, to travel, in your marriage, in relationship. Muster courage and face the situation. Defeat it. Don’t allow it to defeat you.

Learn to do what you must do

In this world, if you want to do only the things that please you, or that you are comfortable with, be sure that you will not achieve much. If you want to achieve anything significant, you must learn to do what you have to do whether it pleases you or not; whether it is easy or not; whether you fear to do it or not.

There are definitely times when you would feel better lying in bed under a warm blanket; but if you do that, many things will go wrong. Hence, you have to make the effort to get up and brave the cold in order to be where you are required to be at the right time. Then you can achieve what you want to achieve.

If you abandon your studies because they are hard and you do not want anything that bothers you, of course, you will end without the certificate you would have had at the end of successful studies.If you do not say “I am sorry” to your spouse whom you have hurt because you do not feel like it, the relationship will not be repaired.If you do not speak out to make your point because you fear, the point will not be made. If you do not take action because you fear, you will not do what you want to do.

Examples could continue to show that you cannot only do the things you like or which please you if you want to succeed. You must learn to do what you must do to get what you want.If something is hard to do or not pleasant to you, but is a must for what you want to achieve, you must muster the courage to do it in order to achieve what you want to achieve.

Qualified for a golden crown

golden cownIf you’re wise enough to see
The opportunities of today
As they roll by;
Smart enough to tap
The opportunities of today
Before they disappear
Into thin air;
Courageous enough to dash for
The opportunities of today
Before fear and discouragement grip you;
Qualified enough you shall be
For a golden crown to wear;
And reason enough shall not be found
Not to award it to you.

That’s the spirit

If you believe you can do
Whatever you want to do,
That’s the spirit;
Keep it up.
It will take you far.

If you believe you have the courage
To withstand all the storms of life,
That’s the spirit;
Keep it up.
It will take you far.

If you believe with God on your side
Everything is possible,
That’s the spirit;
Keep it up.
It will take you far.

If you believe you are the architect
Of your own destiny,
That’s the spirit;
Keep it up;
It will take you far.

Where to get courage and self-confidence

Have you realized that those who are deeply rooted in God are the most courageous people?

Indeed, they are.

Those whose faith in the Lord is strong are the most self-confident; the most assertive; and the most positive; and the most successful. They fear not; doubt not; worry not; for they know God is their senior companion as they journey through life. He is in control.

If you want to be like such people and have a compelling personality that emits courage and self-confidence, put your full trust in the Lord.

God is the source of Confidence and courage; and every good thing that you need in this world. Go to Him for these precious things.
