Hit and hit

Once I thought an easy thing
To just hop hop hop to the top;
Then I was
A little boy;
And just dreamed dreamed, dreamed
And dreamed;
Later was when I saw,
‘Twas a childish view I had!
In this hard world of ours;
You have to hit, hit, hit and hit,
If you want to drive home a nail,
Into the wood of life;
Hit hit hit and hit;
Never wear out of hitting hard.

Leave nothing out

We, of this site, have a dream;
Our dream is to be champions
of inspiration, motivation
And encouragement.
Through the magic of words,
We want to take
Whoever accepts to be taken,
From where they are,
To where they want to go.
Everyone bound for greatness
Has a dream,
This is our dream;
And we are leaving nothing out
To make our dream come true;
Leave nothing out
To make your dream come true.

Where courage takes you

To achieve any significant dream, you need courage. To climb the ladder of success to the top, you need courage. Courage is very important. It enables you to do the things that you know you must do.

Many people think they have courage when they do not. It does not suffice to say you have courage, or to feel you have courage. You have to prove it through action. Only this way can you know whether or not you have courage.

Have you ever faced a situation which challenged you to show courage? If such a situation comes,you may easily see that you do not have the courage you thought you had.

It can never be overemphasized that courage is necessary for you to achieve a big dream. A good question is how to build courage. By doing. Always do the things you fear to do. By doing this repeatedly, you will cultivate the habit of courage.

Life is controlled by habit. Any act or practice that is repeated often without being conscious of it is a habit. Courage can become a habit if you cultivate it. In which case, you make it a point of duty to squarely face every tough situation that comes your way. If you keep doing this, courage will become your habit.

If you do not make a deliberate effort and cultivate that habit of courage, you will, without knowing it, cultivate the habit of cowardice.

The habit of courage makes you face challenges. The habit of cowardice makes you run away from challenges.

How can you achieve anything significant in this world if you run away from challenges? The habit of cowardice will make you a loser. The habit of courage will make you a winner since it makes you face the bull by the horns. When you start facing the bull by the horns, you start winning; and climbing the ladder to the top.

Therefore, you have to cultivate the habit of courage to give yourself a good chance of ending at the top.

My dream

IMG_20151009_150512-1-1-1 (1)Do you know my dream?
This is my dream:
To make the most of my God-given talent.
If that will make me soar high in the sky,
Why not? So be it;
If God has given me wings,
What else do I do with them?
I use them to fly;
To use them otherwise
Is to use them wrongly;
Wings, I know, are meant for flying.
So, that’s my dream;
To soar high in the sky
With the wings my God has given me.
What is your dream?

Don’t kill my dream!

Stay off me, fear!
Don’t kill my dream!
You are a dream killer;
Stay off me, doubt!
Don’t kill my dream!
You are a dream killer;
Stay off me, worry!
Don’t kill my dream!
You are a dream killer;
Stay off me negativity!
Don’t kill my dream!
You are a dream killer;
Stay off me dream killers!
Don’t kill my dreams!

    The road is clear

The road is clear

What is going on in the comment columns on the web? A lot of heart-touching things are being said. Do you take time to read and ponder on the things that are said on your site? There is so much expressed. Take a look at a few comments made on my site and to my comment on other sites:

Shiva Malekopmat
When I first met you just the other day in this virtual world, as I came to know that you are from Cameroon, I started exploring about your country.
The first time and also the last time I heard of Cameroon was during the World Foot Ball Cup, thirty years back and continuously till the last world cup. They are really tough guys, and to play the game of football one has to be so.
I came to know of your country – its history, politics, corruption and of course Football.
Your admiration for me is like a Star on my shoulder flap.
As you have said, it has today come to you in response to my comment and poem, which you had done to so many, so it is with me. I have received replies from some bloggers that my comment was the nicest and one of the best comments they did receive, because I have commented on their Posts or I have written some lines in continuation of their poems.
In Cameroon – you would say Shiva the Shiva! Just to say you are great.
It is very surprising and strange to know, but at the same time it has made me feel a bit shy and embarrassing. I am great, no, no, I am not, I am not and I am not. Its only your greatness having to tell that.
I only wish that our friendship shall grow multi fold in the “Cradle of Love and Affection”.
Will that be a post for you now.
Fondest Regards,
Shiva
Hey Ngobesing Romanus,
How delightful to have your company here at Dewin’s, Ngobesing, my friend 🙂 It’s wonderful to see you here and read your words of kindness, inspiration, encouragement, and support. And, if I may, I would also like to say how much I have enjoyed your fine company whilst sharing a stretch of road together over the past two weeks or so. I couldn’t have asked for anything more than fellowship and friendship, and in both regards, you have been most generous. There are reasons people meet across time and space, and whilst those reasons may not always be immediately ‘obvious’, the ‘quality’ of their impact is profound. I am very proud to call you my friend. Thank you 🙂
Namaste
DN – 23/09/2015

THOUGHTS ON “PEACE IN THE WORLD”

  1. Ngobesing, your vision is huge, gigantic but not impossible. I truly hope that come one Concentrateday we will not read news of war, not to send our young men to fight endless senseless war. Thank you for doing what you can to inspire people and to encourage your readers to think on a bigger wider scale.

    ps. love the poem at the end of the post.

  2. I read this post and about to leave for Lunch.
    Your asking has now made me sit and write about your Wild Ambitions.
    Getting Peace into this World is itself the Wildest Ambition one can have, I suppose.
    Because the world is not mild and it needs somebody very wild.
    When every country wants to show its might through the military power that it possess.
    It is not so easy to have ambitions like that.
    Only a day dreamer can think of that to achieve.
    All day dreamers have achieved like that.
    Night dreams are for the self.
    Day dreaming is for others, that which you are dreaming of.
    I only wish that one day will come, it may take time and we may not be there to see, but what we have wished is important.
    It shall be for the next generation.
    Here I go…….
    Shiva

      1. I now decorate my gift with the wrapper of a Poem for YOU.

        The World Is just a Piece
        But who wants Peace
        Every country wants to show its Might
        Who is going to make them Tight
        I think people like you Might
        For the next Generations to see the Sight
        A peaceful World so Bright

        Shiva for Ngobesing

      2. You are just so special, aren’t you?. I do not know what to say. You are really special. You are as composed in your words as you look in your picture. I must say you have won my admiration. Thank you for this lovely gift (poem). I shall keep it jealously. I have written poems for many people; and today mine comes. Ha ha ha! A time for everything, indeed! Best wishes beloved friend. Keep on shining light on the world and its people.kr

  3. You see, reading this, I smile not about the ambitious dream but to the fact that such a dream often comes with divine inspiration. The world is in turmoil today all orchestrated by people who equally had dreams but that were oriented towards wrong ideologies and designed to foster the devil’s plans. I know God does not pull the trigger, he can only use men like you – in fact he has always done that. God did not hand write a single word in the Bible, he used men just like you who lived in communities like we do today and who had similar difficulties we are having today.

    I smile because while the challenges are there, it’s NOT impossible, the day shall come when the world will remember that somebody had a dream and they will be living it just like we live Martin Luther’s today. I know and trust that this will come to pass whether we as a generation approve of it, or not. We just have to keep the flame alight in those who support what we stand for and fight to be the best at all times. If God gave you such an inspiration and call, he will surely give you the will, the stamina and the means to pull through. You are blessed.

    1. This can only come from a great mind. Your words came down on me like a gentle shower of blessings. You cannot even imagine what impact your comment has had on me especially coming from someone who knows my heart, my mind and my skin through and through. Words are not enough to say thank you. Thank you and thank you and thank you. For ever be blessed.

  4. I really like that you pointed out that it is of vital importance to be successful in our relationships with those we love. We are on this earth to love, and God has granted us the ability to love. This world cannot be a better place, if we, as humans do not exude love in our daily interactions. A great place to start loving, is in our own home!

    1. This is exact. And for us to love, we have to be taught to love. By teaching we are not talking of the classroom experience only. We start teaching our child from the first day its born through touch and even the thought waves that we communicate to them. We have to communicate love in our facial appearance, our smile, our voice, our touch and so on. The child will grow up knowing love and being able to love and be loved; that is if this education continues in school, and where ever they go, etc.

  5. I read the whole article. I was led to record my comment in my journal. Here is my entry DSC_0106about it. Hopefully it does not go into the spam bin!
    Tuesday, September 22, 2015 at 11:56 am
    Father? Every single moment You amaze me with Your doings! Here I am minding the task that You have assigned unto me—I am not looking for anyone’s fellowship anymore because You have given me peace about this matter of fellowship.
    Very well then! I have revised the first published book titled Power From On High! Now I have re-submitted it for publication of the revised edition.—that will take at least 24 hours before I hear from Kindle. What to do next?
    I go to my kitchen and rescued my almost burnt boiled eggs! I combined them with my veggie meddle from the fridge, added a touch of balsamic vinegar and voila! A tasty brunch!
    Next? I come back to my desk, papers, notes, books and what have you functionally scattered all around my computer! The mouse and the key board have been giving me a heap of troubles—those two seemed to have team-up to test my exploding limit!
    Alright, I proceed to check my long list of emails—open & close, open & close looking for the one that I am waiting for, what was that one? Goodness sake! Don’t even remember what is it that I am waiting for! Bless my heart!
    I click—the mouse jumps to wherever I did not mean for it to jump to! What? How did I get here? I start to click away then, there! My brother! How did I get to you? Let me see what he is up to now?
    Peace in the world Ngobesing Romanus. I begin to read—carefully inquiring from the Spirit within my being, what is it that I see?
    I like Ngobesing! I know that he is Your servant. What is it that You are showing me about my brother and his passion for peace in this world? Suddenly! I see!
    My brother, I sense that I must ask you if you would like to hear what I see? If it is so, please keep checking my blog, for I will post the whole matter in the blog. 🙂
    His love in my heart for all, thia/Basilia

    1. Spell binding. I read all without a blink. Thank you so much for I can see how much attention you have paid to this post. What greater love and consideration can you demonstrate to me. God in his love and mercy will direct us. Rich blessings to you, loving friend. May God’s light continuously shine through you to the world!

      1. To Him be the honor! Thanks for your support. I have not posted yet the rest of what I saw! I am waiting for the right time!
        Besides, I am going to have to re-do my revision process with Kindle because I found that I wrote, ‘no still’ instead of ‘no steal’. Now, I’ll have to wait another 24 hrs plus wait, wait, wait! for whatever! O how tiresome this waiting can be! We need the power of love from on high to overcome our own impatient selves!
        His love in my heart for all, thia

    1. Thank you very much. I really hope so. Of one thing ,I am very sure. If my ideas are not bought today, they will be tomorrow. If not from me, from someone else. I believe this is the way of the future if we are to save the world. My prayer is that God may offer me the opportunity to come across someone who can put me on the platform. Knowing it is God’s work he wants to do through me, I am positive He will give me the right people at the right time. I pray that people may spread this vision on the net that God may carry it to the people he has chosen for it. If you take the books you write, there is so much in them to teach the beauty of the world ; to fill people with love; to make people love others, go beyond barriers etc. These are the things we should give priority to not how to beat the other person in the competition, undercut the other, betray, deceive, play a fast one on the other etc.Of course, in the real world, these things cannot be ignored but they must not be presented as the best way or the normal way. We should progressively move away from such a way of life.

      1. I see it exactly the same way. It is not about to fight against war and only talk about the bad things, but to stand up, spread light and love and take action to make it better, to show examples, to be role models. We need to encourage, to empower, to motivate, to ignite the loving light wherever and whenever we can. We need to speak about it and to practice it. This way we infect others and they again infect others. Humanity can become a virus that rushes around the world. It is possible. I believe it!!! And this is not a dream! I believe that it is possible! You are a great speaker and motivater. It is wonderful how active you are. I am sure you will get the right people at hands, because love always has priority.

      2. You have touched the heart of it. I knew it was not my dream alone. I knew many people would see the same way. You state so clearly here. Our challenge is to crystallize it; to give it flesh and take it off the round and begin to channel it to gradually gather momentum as it journeys along; and soon it becomes a whirl wind for good.Your words here are just what this dream needs to become reality. Because with every word put in it gathers flesh; and becomes ‘our’ thing. Thank you Erika.

  6. If we start sending all warmongers in one way journey into space we might, because there are only handful warmongers who provoke and harass, the majority will rather live in peace, maybe a squabble or two but not wars

    It is easy to forget those less fortunate, but never excusable. I agree with you.

    Though one person can’t save the world, one person can help ease the suffering of one, five, or more people through simple acts of kindness.

    If 100 people help this way, a 1000 others might have an easier life, a sense they have value, have one less thing to worry about.

    king_hand_photoOne way I like to help is save all my change in a container till I have a nice sum. When I have a container full of loose change, I give it to a group that provides food to children in the community who might otherwise eat just one meal a day – the one they get at school for lunch.

    The group provides food all year since these children might not get regular meals during weekends, holidays, and vacations.

    The cost to me? Trivial. It amazes me how much money I accumulate this way. A pastor of my church suggested this as a way to set aside money to help others, but until I tried it, I thought it probably was a small deal.

    Save the world? No, I don’t make a big deal of difference on the huge scale of need, but on the lesser scale of need in my community, I am able to make a difference.

    Thanks for bringing this thought up! I challenge anyone reading our remarks to try this simple way of helping or tell us how they help ease the way for less fortunate people.

    • You have a golden heart. I give you a thumbs up.You rightly say it; one person will not change the world but one person can make a difference in the world which is what with your simple method you are doing. It’s a huge difference, you are making indeed. As you so well say, if more people could do such simple but loving gestures, our world would be great. Of course, there can be no doubt that not everybody will do it but many will be inspired by this to do something. I do not agree with people who hold that good deeds like yours should not be publicized. Good deeds, I believe, should be publicized not for the self aggrandizement of the one who has carried out the good deed, but in other that someone somewhere may be inspired by it to emulate the example; and if this can be multiplied, that will mean so much to the world.Let me take this opportunity to thank you of the West who in my judgement have been doing so much to alleviate the plight of the less fortunate in other continents like mine (Africa – Cameroon). Although not everybody will appreciate it, (not every one is blessed with the gift of appreciation), many do appreciate. May God continue to fill your hearts with the spirit of love and generosity, and your pockets with the means to stand by those who need a shoulder to lean on. Many blessings to you.

       
    • This was the first time I mentioned to anyone I do this. There are a couple people who know because one I give the money for the meals and the other is the pastor, but it seemed appropriate today to mention it after your comments. Maybe we will trigger others to do good works! It doesn’t have to be a big thing, just one from the heart that helps someone else an a way that makes a difference in their life, the burdens they have.

      I admit the visit by the Pope in America today, this week, has touched my heart and inspired me, too, to speak to this action though I’m not Catholic.

    • Thank you. You’ve made my day. Please, forward.ever.Talking about being Catholic or not, does not matter.We are all children of God. When you send the gifts you send into the world you do not know who benefits. Nothing should keep us apart. Lots of blessings to you.

    • Exactly! It takes very little effort to do nice things for others, and Christ advises us to do just that in Matthew 25:31-46. Though the intent is to assure eternal life, one should do this because it is right, regardless of personal gain.

Grant them courage O Lord!

Lord, one thing I ask of you:
Give everyone who reads this,
The courage of their dreams;
Grant them courage of their convictions;
So that they will stand firm
For their dreams;
So that they will not shake
On their beliefs;
So that all laughter
Or ridicule will slide on their backs
As water that slides on a duck’s back.
Grant them the wisdom
To accomplish all
That you put in their hearts
To accomplish!

Peace in the world

krCan we have peace in the world? Yes, we can. I like us to talk peace here. I like us also to talk about you; about me; and about my vision for an excellent world. A lot of things in one post; but they all form one package. It’s a long post, but I deem it necessary.

As I start another year in this world, I am amazed by how this blog has grown within such a short time. We started here in August 2014. Then I imported from blogger without the stats. That is why you will see the date in the archives going back to 2012. I cannot believe where I am because of my late entry into ICT and social media.

IMG_0375I fully enjoyed the last one year on this blog, doing what I did. I loved every single minute I spent blogging. It was thrilling, exciting, enjoyable, fulfilling. I have special love for people. I like to see everyone happy. Give me a magic wand to wipe out evil from the surface of the earth and let good prevail, and I will dash for it.

My dream is to contribute to make you as successful and as happy as you can be. My heartfelt desire is to pump you up to exploit your potential to the full and soar high in the sky. I go to bed at night and get up in the morning asking myself, “What can I do to help those I meet to become the best persons or the greatest persons that they can be.” This is my call. The is the purpose for which God put me here. I believe everybody will do better with encouragement, inspiration, the right motivation and 10489_10152206347645578_1374916903_nhelp including people who are doing extremely well and even better than the person who is doing the motivation or encouragement. That is why I encourage thousands of you reading this whom I know are doing by far better than me. What I want is that you do even better; that you exploit that talent to the full. When you succeed more, the world becomes a little better for everybody. Hence, do not be surprised to hear me tell you to get up and go for your best when you are running far ahead of me. I am just doing my job – what I am here to do. The Pope can win his salvation through a sermon by a priest.

I thank God for granting me the opportunity to do what I am doing. He has offered me many opportunities in the past to do it including social media; and continues to do so.

I thank God for granting me the gift of openness. I say what is in my mind and heart as long as I know it is for good; that it is what He expects of me.

As I start another year after my birthday, may God grant me all the resources I pray for so that I may continue with what I am doing for him through service to you and humanity. If I am not yet able to put a donate button on this site, I like to let you know that your support will be most welcome. I have a message I want to take to the world. What has delayed its take-off is the fact that the financial resources that God has set aside for this purpose have not yet reached me. They are definitely on the way from you or others. May God use you as a channel for this!

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURESThis is the message I want to take to the world. I want to tell the world that an excellent world is possible. A world without war is possible. Peace is possible; but we WILL NEVER have peace going about it as we are doing. We must change our method. What will bring us the excellent world we all need is education. What type of education? this is what I want to tell the world. Not the education that we are giving our children and ourselves right away. A new type of education.

My message is nothing new. Thousands of people have talked about what I have to say in various ways. You know it; and have talked about it in one form or the other; but we as a world have not yet been able to rally together around it and embrace it. That is what we absolutely need to embark on. That is what we are embarking on. We need to mobilize the whole world to carry out a reform that will lead to an excellent world. The path which the world is taking today is leading the world to destruction. If it is not changed, the destruction of the world will be inevitable.

I pray you to give careful thought to this vision which I have for the world. God usesSAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES who he chooses for his works. He chose a virgin to be a channel for the realization of his salvation plan. He chose Joseph for the role you know. He chose fishermen and many other lowly ones for his mission. He is calling you and I to say yes to Him to use us for this dream to become a reality. That is why he is unveiling this to you now. He is asking you to be at the forefront. He has put you among the first to be informed of this vision because He wants you to play a special role.

IMG_20141226_222125I am passionate about this dream. I am sure of one thing: there will be millions of people who will laugh at me as a day dreamer; but that will not deter me. Billions follow what Jesus Christ taught; millions follow what Mohammed taught; millions follow what other great leaders taught, yet not everybody believes them; and their work has not stopped; their teachings have helped the world. I am very confident that billions will go with me. There are billions of excellent people in the world who hunger and thirst for an excellent world and are ready to do whatever they can to rid the world of the so much evil. These are my people. I will go with them and together the miracle will be done. The truth is no matter how passionate I might be about this dream, I can go nowhere with it alone. I need others to succeed. No General, no matter how great they may be can fight and win a war alone. I therefore invite you to come on board. Join me let us rebuild the world. Join me! Let us stop the world from destroying itself. Let us muster the courage of our convictions. PhotoGrid_1420273189495

This is my prayer and promise to God as I start to enjoy my gift of another year in this world:

“For the next one year, O Lord;DSCN0566
I promise to do my best
In everything I will do;
I promise to serve you the best way I can
Through the service I will render
To your people in the world.
I promise to do my utmost to educate, inspire,
Encourage, motivate, and help
As many people as I can,
To bring out the best in them;
To realize their full potentials,
As it is in your plan for them;
So that they can offer the best of themselves

We are already moving

We are already moving


As they possibly can do,
To make the world an excellent place
For all to live in and enjoy.
Lord God, may you grant me
The courage of my dreams;
The wisdom and all the other resources
That I need to do what you
Have called me to do for you.
Amen!
