How to make God give to you

Do you know how to make God give to you? It’s easy. This is what God himself says:

“Give to others, and God will give to you. Indeed, you will receive a full measure, a generous helping, poured into your hands – all that you can hold. The measure you use for others is the one that God will use for you” (Luke 6:38)

How to make history

Do you know how you can make history? Read this:

“What is it that makes you think you cannot make history as you hear others doing? You can make history. You can create an impact on a world scale. All that is required is a decision to do that; a specific and clear goal; the determination to make an impact in the world; that you set about your work with a passion, close your ears to any discouraging messages; focus on your dream; make God your Senior Partner in your project and keep on until you realize your dream.”

What is the mother of leadership?

I wish to invite you to go to the ‘like’ button and hit it very hard so that I hear where I am sitting if you agree with this statement by Wendell L. Willkie:”Education is the mother of leadership.”

If you don’t also mind it, I would like to know what you think about it. Do you agree or disagree with the statement?

What responsible decision are you ready to take here and now concerning your education or the education of your children?

The limits of our abilities

What are the limits of your abilities?

Hearty thanks to those of you who responded to the question ‘Do you know who said this?” The quote was “Do not take the limits of your vision to be the limits of the world.”

I have not found this quote on record anywhere. What Arthur Schopenhauer said is “Every man takes the limits of his own field of vision for the limits of the world.”

I found the statement “Do not take the limits of your vision to be the limits of the world” in one of my writings but could not say if I got it from someone or it is a thought that was inspired by the words of Schopenhauer.

What is most important is the call not to place unnecessary limits on ourselves. As Pierre Teilhard de Chardin says, “It is our duty as men and women to proceed as though the limits of our abilities do not exist”

Are you ready for this?

From acorn to oak

“The mighty oak from the acorn grows.”

I am not able to put my finger on the author of these beautiful words; but I must say they inspire me.

An oak is a might tree. An acorn is a small nut from this tree.

It is hard to believe that the small acorn can produce the mighty oak; but it does.

What do we learn from this about life and what we can become or do?

What wise people do

My people have a proverb which says, “A fool does only at the end what a wise man does at the beginning.”

This is very wise, indeed. Many young people neglect what they are supposed to do and only think about it in old age after wasting many years.

If you plant a fruit tree as a youth, you can expect to harvest fruit from it for many years. If you wait till you are old, you may not enjoy the pleasure of seeing it bear fruit.

Wise people give their lives to God when young.  They do not wait for old age to do that.

Set your goals and begin taking responsible decisions and actions when you are young. Do not wait till you are old.

“The evil that men do…”

“The evil that men do lives after them; the good is oft interred with their DSC_0000143bones” (William Shakespeare).

Is someone far or near making life hard for you?

There are millions of people around the world suffering in the hands of others: wives in the hands of their husbands; husbands in the hands of their wives; workers in the hands of difficult bosses; bosses in the hands of difficult subordinates; citizens in the hands of bad leaders; and leaders in the hands of bad citizens.

SAM_0076Perhaps, you are suffering in the hands of someone or you yourself are making someone suffer. Are you making life hard for someone: your husband, your wife, your colleague, your subordinate, your boss etc?

Why should someone make you suffer? Why should you make another suffer? It is hard to understand that you are giving hard times to someone you called  sweet heart just yesterday or that someone who called you sweet heart just yesterday is giving you hard times today; or that you are giving hard timesDSCN0485 to someone with whom you should be working in peace, love and harmony.

Who are we deceiving?Let us never forget the words of William Shakespeare: “The evil that men do lives after them; the good is oft interred with their bones” 

Those who matter in society

“Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don’t matter, and those who matter don’t mind” (Bernard M. Baruch).

DSC_0000084Bernard M. Baruch is encouraging being one’s true self and freedom of expression. Many people pretend to be what they are not; thinking it would make others esteem them.
Some people do not express themselves freely for fear of what others may say or of hurting others. Such people inhibit themselves and imprison their own ideas.
On the other hand, there are people who spend their time prying into the lives of DSC_0000144others; gossiping about others. Such people have small minds. Should they talk about you, it should not bother you. Their words lack weight. Hardly do they think before they speak. They speak not because they have anything to say but to be heard. They are empty vessels out to make the loudest noise.
SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURESThe real people who matter in society do not have time to pry into the private lives of others. Time, to them, is precious and they cannot afford to waste any of it talking about what will help no one. They take you for who you are; and respect your freedom of expression. Do you want to be ‘an empty vessel’ that makes the loudest noise or somebody who matter?

What other thing can make you consider someone as:

  1. an empty vessel in their society?
  2. Someone who matters in the society?
