When silence speaks

Posted: 21/01/2016 in Uncategorized

A seed grows with no sound, but a tree falls with huge noise… Destruction has noise, but creation is silent. In your success remain silent as there is power in silence. Grow Silently! 
Cultivate Silence

A farmer discovered that he had lost his watch in the barn. It was no ordinary watch because it had sentimental value for him.
After searching high and low among the hay for a long while; he gave up and enlisted the help of a group of children playing outside the barn. He promised them that the person who found it would be rewarded.
Hearing this, the children hurried inside the barn, went through and around the entire stack of hay but still could not find the watch.

Just when the farmer was about to give up looking for his watch, a little boy went up to him and asked to be given another chance.
The farmer looked at him and thought, “Why not? After all, this kid looks sincere enough.” So the farmer sent the little boy back in the barn.
After a while the little boy came out with the watch in his hand! The farmer was both happy and surprised and so he asked the boy how he succeeded where the rest had failed.
The boy replied, “I did nothing but sat on the ground and listened. In the silence, I heard the ticking of the watch and just looked for it in that direction.”

A peaceful mind can think well than a worked up mind.
Sometimes the noise in our life is so much with no clarity on what to do. The mind seems so occupied with lots of thoughts that promotes fear, discouragement & anxiety.
Let peace guard ur heart.



Wake up call

Posted: 15/01/2016 in POETRY

I have decided not sleep again,
Instead i wanna wake up,
From this sleep of laziness,
From this sleep of Aimlessness
From this sleep of Procrastination,
Cos i want to see a clear direction,
So i stand here with a warm heart,
I put away fear and tear it apart,
Cos i know that failing to plan is planning to fail,
So ilet the words go,
I let the words flow,
I let the word blow,
Your direction for you to know,
that i am speaking out of my pains,
Like the blood in ma veins,
I let them go with rhythim of my heartbits,
Yes in bits then statements,
Which make sense and thats where my sentence commences
That everyone who got where He is has had to begin where he was,
So i start today coz i know that nobody can go back,And start anew begining but anyone can start today and make a good ending.

A bone may be the sweetest
food in the world of dogs,
but you’ll never see a hen
chasing after bones even
when it’s starving. A worm
may be the sweetest food in
the world of hens, but you’ll
never see a a dog chasing
after worms even when it’s
starving. Some things are
not your portion. You were
created for something
special than what others
may see. When Daniel
rejected the king’s sweetest
food and waited for his own
sweetest food, he grew
better than those who ate
the king’s food. What the
dog eats and lives, the hen
may eat and die. Your
sweetness is not determined
by others sweetness. Don’t
follow others to taste their
lives. Your time will

Never depend on single income. Make investment to
create a second chance.
If you buy things you do not need, soon you will have to sell things you need.

Do not save what is left after spending, but spend what is left after saving.

Never test the depth of a river with both feet.

Do not put all eggs in one basket.

Honesty is a very expensive gift. Do not expect it from cheap people.
7. Past is a waste paper, present is a newspaper, and future is a question paper. Come out of your past, control the present, and secure the future.

8. When bad things happen in your life, you have three choices. You can either let it define you, let it destroy you or you can let it strengthen you.

9. Our eyes are in the front because it is more important to look ahead than to look backwards.

10. We use pencil when we were young, but now we use pens. Do you know why? Because mistakes in childhood can easily be erased, unlike now.

Wish you a prosperous 2016.
