Be positive

When you get up
In the morning,
Be positive;
Don’t say
“What a terrible day
It is.going to be!”
Say instead,
“What a wonderful day
It promises to be!”
Don’t say
“I foresee things
Will be difficult.”
Say instead,
“I foresee things
Will be good.”
Think of ways to do
What you should do;
Don’t think of excuses
Not to do
What you should do;
Put in your mind
That you were born
To succeed;
Don’t put in your mind
That you were born
To fail;
Truth is, you were born
Not to fail;
You were born
To succeed.


The positive side of failure

Failure has two sides;
The negative side
And the positive side;
Most people see
The negative side;
And are blind
To the positve side;
You should not be
Like these people;
They are the losers;
The winners see
The positive side;
And to the best
Of my knowledge,
You are a winner;
The positive side
Of failure
Calls to you.
Will you take the hand?


There’s nothing bad;
Everything is good;
It depends on
The way you see it;
Which means
Your mindset;
Determines appreciation;
If you have a negative
You will see everything
If you have a positive
You will see everything
What some people see
As positive,
Some see as negative;
What some people see
As negative,
Some see as positive.
Thus, goes the world.
We see things
Through our mindset.
Don’t build a negative
Build a positive
And see things positively.

What the world needs

Don’t be a divider,
Be a unifier instead;
Don’t be a trouble maker;
Be a peace maker;
Don’t be a discourager,
Be an encourager
Don’t be a destroyer,
Be a builder;
Be a positive value;

What the world needs:
Are builders
Not destroyers;
Peace makers
Not trouble makers;
Not dividers;
Not discouragers.
Positive values,
Not negative values.

Be what the world needs;
Not what the world
Does not need;
If you are what
The world does not need,
You are undesirable,
And the world will
Get rid of you.
Be positive!

The content of your basket

Everyone has come into 2019
Carrying a basketĀ 
That is heavy in content;
But what is in your basket?
Some baskets are full of negatives;
Some are full of positives;
See someone carrying a basket
Full of grudges;
Another is carrying a basket full of criticisms;
And another is carrying a basket
Full of complaints;
I call their baskets,
The dark baskets;
Full of everything that is not going well
With other people,
The country;
And the world;
That is not my kind of basket,anyway;
What I like is the bright basket;
Everything good is in that basket;
Smiles fill it to the brim;
Yet, other beautiful things still have their space;
Praise and appreciation are everywhere.
Smiles and positive attitude competing also
For space.
This is my basket;
This is what I have taken along to 2019.
If you are carrying a basket like mine,
We are meant to journey together. Come with me,
Let's journey together this 2019.
Fill your basket with positive content.

Are you a solution or a problem?

What are you?
Are you a solution
Or a problem?
What are you?
Are you a problem
Or a solution?
What are you?
Are you a winner
Or a loser?
What are you?
Are you a builder
Or a destroyer?
It is important
To stop from time
To time,
To ask yourself
These questions.
It is better to be
A solution than
To be a problem;
It is better to be
A builder than
To be a destroyer;
It is better to be
A winner, than
To be a loser;
It is better to be
Positive than
To be negative.
It is better to be
A solution
To our problem;
Than to be a problem
Needing a solution.

Is the world how you see it?

There are so many things
I so much like about
The world;
There are so many things
I so much hate about
The world;
We have so many angels in
The world;
We have many reasons to hope;
We have many devils in
The world;
Many reasons to be gloomy;
Sometimes the world is
So sweet and nice;
Sometimes the world
Has such a bitter taste;
We have people in this world,
Who see the positive side
Of the world
About everything that happens;
We have people who dwell
On the negative side always.
No doubt for them, happiness
Is far-fetched.
Life has good things and bad things;
What use dwelling on the bad
To paint your mind dark,
And that of others;
Focus on the sunny side;
Good things will follow you;
The world is how you see it.
True or false?

Media role in creating an excellent world

The role that the media are called to play to build an excellent world is paramount.

But that role is not being played. In fact, the media are doing mostly the opposite of what they should do.

The impression you get when you listen to the news is that the world is bad because it is dominated by bad people.

This is negative reporting which is not good for the world.

Excessive negative reporting has invaded the media world.

We are so much taken along the path of the negative instead of the positive.

Such reporting gradually destroys the world.

The Media should report the so many good things happening in the world not the opposite.

By focusing so much on the negative, the media fill our minds with negative thoughts, which end up making us negative people.

Being negative people, we do negative things and pit ourselves against each other. Hence, the various conflicts and wars that rock the world taking away human lives and gradually destroying the world.

The media have an obligation to build not to destroy. And to build newsworthiness has to be redefined with primacy given to the positive.

Media work must end up filling human minds with the positive, and making people shun the negative.

This is indispensable for making the world an excellent place for all.
