The biggest obstacle standing in your way it’s you,

Coz it’s you who keeps saying keep can’t make it,

It’s you who keeps saying No I can’t achieve it, see it’s all about you,

When Obama say yes we can, you are still there saying no I can’t,

When papa God say give me your hand,

You are still on the ground you don’t want to try and stand,

When G.O.D says this is my command you still don’t want to follow and understand,

So it’s all about you,

You are therefore the biggest problem facing yourself,

You are too negative about yourself,

You say there is no point even in trying,

You say there is point in praying,

Be born again and become brand new,

Be positive and start believing in you,

So believe that the only person better than is you is you,

So then reinvent yourself,

By getting rid of your negative self,

Start building bridges between yourself and success,

And therefore you will see the progress and prowess,

Coz the only person qualified enough is you,

Other people have mere opinion about yourself but you,

You have facts about yourself,

So translate your thoughts into action,

And start working towards it,

Coz one step in the direction of your dreams is better than a thousand descriptions of your dreams,

One action will do more for you than a thousand intentions,

So if you started you are the right track,

Be encourage by the fact that you are no longer where you were,

Be inspired by the fact that you are getting closer to where you want to be,

plan well so that you can hit your dreams running,

And do not be among those who are still planning,

Coz hardwork, accountability and integrity

Are the driving forces towards us reaching our goals and dreams?

Tony the poet.

Just be you

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
come.

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

3. ON SAVINGS:
Do not save what is left after spending, but spend what is left after saving.

4. ON TAKING RISK:
Never test the depth of a river with both feet.

5. ON INVESTMENT:
Do not put all eggs in one basket.

6. ON EXPECTATIONS:
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.

There was a business executive who was deep in debt and could see no way out.

Creditors were closing in on him. Suppliers were demanding payment. He sat on the park bench, head in hands, wondering if anything could save his company from bankruptcy.

Suddenly an old man appeared before him. “I can see that something is troubling you,” he said.

After listening to the executive’s woes, the old man said, “I believe I can help you.”

He asked the man his name, wrote out a check, and pushed it into his hand saying, “Take this money. Meet me here exactly one year from today, and you can pay me back at that time.”

Then he turned and disappeared as quickly as he had come.

The business executive saw in his hand a check for $500,000, signed by John D. Rockefeller, then one of the richest men in the world!

“I can erase my money worries in an instant!” he realized. But instead, the executive decided to put the uncashed check in his safe. Just knowing it was there might give him the strength to work out a way to save his business, he thought.

With renewed optimism, he negotiated better deals and extended terms of payment. He closed several big sales. Within a few months, he was out of debt and making money once again.

Exactly one year later, he returned to the park with the uncashed check. At the agreed-upon time, the old man appeared. But just as the executive was about to hand back the check and share his success story, a nurse came running up and grabbed the old man.

“I’m so glad I caught him!” she cried. “I hope he hasn’t been bothering you. He’s always escaping from the rest home and telling people he’s John D. Rockefeller.”

And she led the old man away by the arm.

The astonished executive just stood there, stunned. All year long he’d been wheeling and dealing, buying and selling, convinced he had half a million dollars behind him.

Suddenly, he realized that it wasn’t the money, real or imagined, that had turned his life around. It was his newfound self-confidence that gave him the power to achieve anything he went after.
