CONTENTMENT


The richest man in the world lives in Happy Valley. He is
rich in values that endure; in things he cannot lose-things that provide him
with contentment, sound health, peace of mind and harmony within his soul. Here
is an inventory of his riches and how he acquired them:
‘I found happiness by helping others find it.
‘I found sound health by living temperately and eating only
the food my body requires to maintain itself.
‘I hate no man, no envy, but love and respect all mankind.
‘I am engaged in a labor of love with which I mix play
generously, therefore, I seldom grow tired.

‘I pray daily, not for more riches, but for more wisdom with
which to recognize, embrace and enjoy the great abundance of riches I already
possess.

‘I speak no name save only to honor it, and I slander no man
for any cause whatsoever.
‘I ask no favors of anyone except the privilege of sharing my
blessings with all who desire them.
‘I am on good terms with my conscience; therefore, it guides
me accurately in everything I do.
‘I have more material wealth than I need because I am free
from greed and covet only those things I can use constructively while I live.
My wealth comes from those whom I have benefited by sharing my blessings.
The estate of Happy Valley which I own is not taxable. It
exists mainly in my own mind, in intangible riches that cannot be assessed for
taxation or appropriated except by those who adopt my way of life. I created
this estate over a lifetime of effort by observing nature’s law and forming
habits to conform with them. There are no copyrights on the Happy Valley man’s
success creed. If you will adopt it, the creed can bring you wisdom, peace and
contentment.

GIVE IT TIME

When someone comes and tells you,
I can’t sleep without you, I love you the way you are and I can put up with
your good and bad attitude. Before you commit your heart please GIVE IT TIME.

When you just met someone today
and feel like marrying him/her tomorrow, before you do remember you needed to
GIVE IT TIME
When you visit your uncle and you
will stay there for 2months Holidays, don’t be carried away that they serve you
your preferred food and give you hot water to bath during your first two days
and you start making arrangement to relocate to their house, First GIVE IT
TIME.
When a brother visits you and
wakes you up by his shouting of prayer from 12am to 6am, please don’t shut him
down, first GIVE IT TIME.
When a bro joins your fellowship
in First year and he is in every group/wing, please don’t rush and make him a
leader rather GIVES IT TIME.
When you enter a new environment
and everybody worship you and eat your mess don’t be carried away just GIVE IT
TIME.
When someone comes with a new
business with unbelievable Promises, please before you involve your money,
first GIVE IT TIME.
When you see a new church in town
and you hear their waves, before you conclude about how hot they are first GIVE
IT TIME.
Finally when you are in a cross
road of decisions, you don’t know what to do, ask the people or person involved
to please GIVE YOU TIME.
The wise priest in the Bible in
Acts told them to leave Peter and John, Rather,GIVE IT TIME.
You can be good in giving people
tests and trying out who they are, some people know how to pass them all but
the test of time they fail.
Don’t say that Power supply in
your area is now the best until you have GIVEN IT TIME.
Your Uncle or Father told you that
you are useless and worthless and can’t amount to anything, just laugh it away
and ask them to GIVE YOU TIME.
Quote me, “Consistency with time
is the true test of Efficiency”
Time tests Love and proves it.
Time tests businesses and authenticates it.
Time tests spirituality and reveals it.
Time is a tester
Time is an AUTHENTICATOR
Time is a REVEALER
TIME IS STILL A MATTER
Thanks for given this long post
TIME.

WHAT IF

If I date you, will you re-date another me

Or if I propose to you, will you dispose my plight
If I promise never to leave you, will you do the same?
Or take you round the world with me, will you concentrate
If I send you a love text, will you read, smile and reply
Or I call you in the middle of the night, will you comply
For I will never complain about you, will you do likewise?
What if I post you on my social media, would you think twice?
Or produce a song to you, would it be nice
If I decide to use your username on my timeline, will you decline?
Or I come out with the best result, will you be glad
If I mention your name up stage, will you be right there
Or if I tell my friends about you, will you come over?
Or I discuss about you to my pals, will you not be pleased
If I sit right next to you in a cinema, would you allow me
hang my hands over you
Or I put up a funny joke about myself, would you be of the
same mind
If I come online because of you, will you say hello
Or tell you that am ill, will you say goodbye
What if I told you, you are all I have left, will you come
back
Or that this life worth’s nothing without you, will you be quiet
If I told you, you are my first love, will you be my last
Or just tell me everything is going to be alright.

OPEN ARMS

But for a good fighter, who could save the world. For without
those fervent and zealous ones, who would have shed some light on the things we
didn’t know. No matter how far one can get in life, without that fighting spirit
in you, you still cannot go far. If you weren’t born a fighter, surround
yourself with people who does or that one person who is. In fact no one was
born a fighter, it’s a process one learn in the course of life. No wonder,
those who have made most of the discoveries are fighters who didn’t relent on
their own capacity but went ahead and even lot more. For we are what we
repeatedly do, success therefore is not an act but a habit. No wonder we see
those successful ones succeed over and over again, because it has become a habit,
an erasable one which has to just stick with them.
 

It’s time we all step up our game, for this fighting spirit
opens its arm freely for anyone who wishes to embrace it. Do not take
mediocrity for an answer; never take something that is not palatable as an
answer. Forget it, if you don’t adapt to this livelihood, you might end up
under those who took it as their way of life. We should all get this straight,
no one is really as excellent as you think, and it’s only a difference in
mentality. Everyone was born in this world, for the fools couldn’t fight the deluge
of world’s depression, the wise ones fall back on track right side up. For
having this fight back spirit and success oriented spirit has a long way to go
in our inner mind.
They say the rich are getting richer while the poor poorer,
you don’t have anyone to blame, the wise ones count it as an opportunity when
challenges come, In all means they want to come out on top, while the fools
merely relax saying to themselves am not in control of this.
Look for that someone, that person who will wake you up in
the middle of the night to make you accomplish what you desire; for these
people are out there and there is no way you can be around this people that
your vision does not get clearer and stronger. Influence not recognition should
be the aim. If solely you have no one who can charge you to this, you could
stir up this spirit within you too, for someone else needs you to get back up.

INTEGRITY OF ENGINEERING

  
I
love Engineering, i love impact, and because you are fighting for a good grade point
[GP] does not mean you should just put things in your brain for the main time, for you still needs it after that time.
Now, am going to give examples to illustrate my points 

  • Sergie Brin
    and Larry Page
    : – The discoverers of Computer/Google respectively. The former an Engineer while the later a Scientist. They didn’t pursue money, they read to know. Google was a PhD project
    but because they were after the excellence it made money for them, now they are
    billionaires.
  •  Gugleimo Marconi:
    – An electrical engineer pioneer. He invented the long distance communication that
    we refer to as the radio communication use in phone etc. He loved Engineering
    and He was selling his radio. He had a company and became a millionaire.

Most
people will say it’s all about book, but it’s not really about it. First class
degree is not everything. I will just say, you all should do what you love
doing, don’t read to pass only; read for yourself and read to know more. If you
do what you love, you will succeed in it. Don’t pursue the certificate, else you will
end up having nothing. A saying goes thus “Chase the knowledge, and wealth
will chase you”. As for me I will say Academic Excellence doesn’t end by
graduating with first-class honors. We just need to have faith that our future
will be bright.

ONCE A FRANCHISE, ALWAYS ONE

Yes, it’s being a while since this
long thing happened to me
Never felt so good within me until
your appearance showed forth
A morning rose, of which can’t be
hidden from anyone
Mere looking at you, you seemed to
have it all
Can’t help get you out of my brain any
longer
Feeling fulfilled within me, only me
knows what am feeling
I just hope our knowing each other
isn’t a mere waste of time
It can never be, you proved to be
different after close flow
Your sweet voice on air eroded me,
like a silent whistle
You dare mean a lot to me, I bet, you
can’t just believe it
I just hope you don’t see me like the
other guy at the corner
It takes time to clear away ones past,
we sure did had one
For neither of us is perfect, thereby
we find a way to any of our problems
Blissful moments of ours, I toast with
my heart wide opened
We both can become that better person
for ourselves, it’s possible
 I do not know how you feel right now, be
convicted not to be confused neither
Just as i have got a blank space right
now, it’s definitely for you
For i have no other one to run to who
would love me like you do.

VIRTUE

Regardless
of the situation you are in at the moment; forget the sorrows and painful
things you have gone through. Do not remember the things of the past anymore
but never forget the details. Remember you are a success story; remember you
are definitely going to come out successful.
Remember
that virtue called patience, for the race is not for the strong and mighty but
unto God that shows mercy. Forget not all that has happened in your life, they
are stepping stones to your breakthrough. I observe a lot of things and character
in general and found that people no longer have patience any longer; they all
want to do things quickly forgetting God’s will.
Though I
know you have been hit by the different storms of life but that is not enough
reason to go astray and be decisive on bad choices. Remember that faith comes
by hearing and hearing comes from the word of God. Instead of making wrong
choices in life, why can’t you just exercise more patience and key to God word?
This life isn’t hard, it isn’t a funfair either, just have it at the back of
your mind that problems and circumstances doesn’t last forever, you are definitely
going to pull through if you keep patience as your watchword. God has a time
for everything in this life.
Quit to
follow the crowd, the road to failure is trying to please everybody because it’s
so wide whereas the road to success is narrow. Pinpoint your opinion now and do
what is right. Remember those that didn’t act on God’s word, they are nowhere
today, they have fallen apart. Never be moved by the world. We are born to
change it to a better place. Your parents never regretted having patience; they
continued on the quest until you were born into this world, they never rested
until they made you what you are today. Remember their words, Remember God’s
word.
Proverb says
wisdom is even more profitable when you have money, seek wisdom together with patience;
you are never going to lose out. Look back at your past to charge your dream
goals, observe your present, focus more on your future, you are never going to
reach out to someone if you think patience is needless in times like this.

Patience; Think Wisdom; Control Life

FEELINGS CHEAT


Sometimes
life makes us think we do not know how to love. Often times, our heart long for
someone only for us to find out later that it wasn’t meant to be. For when two
hearts beat and the both of them are in love, it’s as though they were new to
the word Relationship and still novice in love.
We get carried
away too quickly in love to find out later that we hurt one-another, maybe we
should just conclude that love is blind or loving is blind. For when two
opposite sex genders open up their mind to what their heart is saying, before
they knew it, the relationship is already on the verge of crashing out because
the female gender thinks that it is up to the male gender to run the
relationship since they are the dominating being. Instead of them to think of a
way out of those difficulties, selfishness and ego sets in between the two
genders both pretending one actually loves the other more and the other feature
saying likewise. In view, this has caused more relationship collapse than any
other means.
When they
both see that rekindle love burning through their eyes and they can’t help
establish it on the outside is really a tragic scenario. They both keep mute as
if everything is alright whereas it’s not. For the more you stay in a
relationship, the more your head feels as if it’s unnecessary and you should
let go. We have got one difficulty to face in life and that is “not putting up
our head to agree with our heart about the ones we love”. The head and heart
should always be in mutual agreement with one another because if they are not, you
only end up hurting one of the two and that is definitely the heart. The heart
cries so much whenever we don’t stand up to that person we love and tell them to
their face, our head does not really care about emotions, its mere logical.
For as long
as we do live in this world, in one way or the other, we have lost a very close
lover that was really special and important to us. Do have it at the back of
your mind now that it’s never your fault, your heart did want to make up but
your head is just too slow to catch the glimpse of what you thinking.

STEPS TO ORDER

You know,
life is not all about the people who started before you; it’s not what you
think in your head that life results in. We learn about life in different levels
and state clearly that fulfilling purpose doesn’t need one to be in haste. To
we all in this world, there are particular time and season that is dedicated to
everyone under the sun. It’s not all about those who started while you hope to
begin, what we are talking about is those who finished well. You can be so
dazzled in the mystery of life that someone who has been downcasted all year
long could be the rising star in split seconds.

We could
remember vividly people who finished their first degree and still haven’t
secured a good job yet and has to learn a trade, but life still changed tide
for them. To achieve something great in life, it’s all about Gods timing, no
one can take that season away from you. Now you see such people in white collar
jobs earning more than those they met in the business line. It’s not about
dwelling somewhere; it’s about how much impact you added to yourself when
leaving that environment; for the real life begins after the choices we make.
Life could be so frustrating and interesting for two different parties all at
the same time. 
It’s a wrong
say that life is cruel, there is a season for everything. Life is full of ups
and fluffs. All you need to do is take advantage when life puts you up, go
higher and higher and if life then wants to pull you down it won’t go past that
height it brought you initially. Take a chance; that is what life is all about.
Don’t just sit doing nothing. Good things happen to those who work for it and
left-over for those who wait.
No matter
your current situation, you can make the most out of it. Sorrow only last for a
while; a night maybe, but joy cometh in the morning all through rough days.
Keep to God’s work, start something until you see yourself being launched to
the top.

CONFUSED LOVE

Not until the moment she wrote about me in that paper that I
knew the end from the beginning

Most things she said about me were quite true, I still marvel
even while writing this
How can someone be so sweet in nature, am still pondering?
Although to me, I think she can be among the few who can
conquer the world
For she is so quiet, so cool, so brave, so mild, everything
one can think of
Often times, her smile makes me feel like a man without
flaws
No wonder you see her smile with such profoundness of love
within
Oh!!! Such a kind of her is very difficult, not easy to find
There are sometimes in life you just love someone for who they
are
Not because they really care about you, but because it is
you
Even when oceans rise, snow falls, you will still see them
stand by you
It’s true we should never try to wrong the right person
Because we never know when the tide will fall on us
And then we would need someone so close to stand by us all
through
Only to find out that we might never see such persons never
again
And of course she remembers that dark night we were both
together
When the wind was blowing so cold and our hair were rising
And it was time for me to go home, not until her mind cut
into something
And she deep sighted within herself; maybe she was confused
to some degree
For she paused a moment and asked me if I had this
likeliness for her
And I was dumbfounded for a while as if I was being
hypnotized, maybe she just couldn’t recognize
Yes; yes; yes, I do have this likeliness for you
I asked her the same question too, and she gave me the same
reply in a low tone
For a while I felt empty; I departed her presence as if we
were never going to see again
For she is a man in woman’s clothing; so brave and bold
In my entire life no one has asked me such a question; not
anyone
For I should have asked her first before she did, I wasn’t
really ready unlike hers
And for the first time in a never time, I dreamt of her till
daybreak
But I tell you now within me, don’t think about this the
other way round
Remember you told me no feelings attached, and I do stand by
it too
The best we can ever be is to be the best friend we can ever
have
And make use of the opportunity we have now, even though
life could change
For you and I must never have love feelings for the wrong
person
This is just my solemn words to you this morning.
And for those of you that are reading this, please and
please never ask the wrong person out
Its better you keep them very close to your eyes and mind
than to your heart
Because keeping such people close to your heart might be
dangerous since life isn’t constant
And you might end up breaking up the relationship making you
lose a friend well kept
But keeping them around you really means a lot, it’s like
you found something you never lose.
