The greatest gift you have today is the gift of life.
God always gives us a fresh start every new day, every new week, every new month every New Year.
You have another opportunity to be better, another opportunity to do more and another opportunity to change.
Hear me friends, where you are today, is a result of circumstances of the past. But where you will be tomorrow, is as a result of the decisions you make today.
Take time today to consider your ways.
Remember, your end can easily be determined by your habits.
Success is not accidental and failure is not the devil’s work, rather with our hands, we fashion both by our consistent actions over time.
Yes, time and chance happen to all men, but your actions control time and chance.
Luck is what happens when opportunity meets preparation.
Life is not fair, but life is just.
It will never deny you what you earn and it will never allow you to enjoy fully, what you have not earned.
Little wonder the sons of the mighty easily fall to catastrophe except they prepare and make themselves worthy of the golden spoon given in the cradle.
Little wonder multi-million dollar celebs return to ruin and penury, especially if the recognition was sudden and the soul still immature.
Little wonder most lottery winners return to a state worse than their previous condition when the wealth is sudden and the heart unprepared.
Envy no one, because envy is a cancer that destroys your originality. You are complete, you are worthy and you are unique.
No one will ever be you, and that is your true superpower. But when you envy and imitate others, you kill your originality.
What you have or do not have, it not really who you are. So worry not that your classmates got bigger cars.
If you could take full stock of who you are, if you could determine your strengths and weaknesses, then focus on your strengths and do your very best every day.
If you will find your passion and follow it every day, and most importantly, find a way to serve others every day with your passion. For as Martin Luther King rightly said, “Not everyone can be famous, but everyone can be great because greatness is determined by service”
If you never consider what others think or say about you, but rather focus on what you say and think about yourself.
I PROMISE YOU, MY FRIEND. SUCCESS WILL FIND YOU.
A happy new month to inevitable Millionaires!
