Top Time Waster (TTW)


It’s MARCH!! My month…. I am happy…. HAPPY CELEBRATION TO ALL MARCH BORN!

*lets get to business for the day*
I was at a retreat organized by the youths of my diocese and the guest speaker who happens to be our Provost emphasized on a thoughtful and powerful statement.

He said ” The youths of this generation, the time we spend watching the television , if it continues at that rate; nobody will watch you in life”

It is indeed sad that the media is the ultimate time waster of this generation, we have ignored the fact that we need to also work hard to be seen on the television someday. Many of the great men we see on the television were busy working,reading,innovating and inventing while their mates were having fun and enjoying their lives. THe media has invented alot of fascinating and mind thrilling programmes which has become gods to mosyA youths in our dear nation. Africa magic has changed the mind and dreams of alot of people who are not self controlled.

Those behind the social media are working hard in their duties to entertain people, that is their passion , they worked hard to get there… have you ever thought of that? WASTING HOURS WITH THE TELEVISION IS DEFINITELY A HUGE WASTE OF TIME WHEN THERE ARE MORE IMPORTANT AND RELEVANT THINGS TO BE DONE AT THAT MOMENT.
I dare not criticze the media, that is their duty and vision…it is a great thing cuz they could entertain us to satisfaction, and that is because they have worked harder to know the wants of the society but then, as a young guy/lady; the television should not be our priority, we’ve gat mpre than enough to get busy with.

Stop dumping time into the television bin.

Stop dumping time into the television bin.

REST, IF YOU MUST BUT DON’T BE LAZY…

The hope of this great nation should not be upon T.V freaks but upon those who are willing to be distinct and control d urge of time wasting.

Watch the television if you must but put self control into action..remember, each second you waste counts and each hour wasted will always be accounted for; Later in the nearest future.

You can't regain the lost time

You can’t regain the lost time

Just imagine;
If wole Soyinka was like you, would you even hear about him today?

If Pastor Enoch Adeboye was like you, would you know him today?

If Fela Durotoye was a tv freak like you, would he have been a top public speaker today?

If Dr. Benjamin carson had not been stopped by his mum from excessive watching of the television, I doubt if he would have been successful in life….

It is loud and clear to us….CAUTION!!

THOUGHT ABOUT QUITTING THEN I NOTICED WHO WAS WATCHING


download
Thought about quiting …… then I noticed who was watching..

I got this attractive title from an edited picture on the social network..and then something struck my mind….why don’t you write something little about this?

MOST great men quit without even considering that young guy afar off who is watching them… In whatever we do in life, learn to always consider those who might be looking up to you.
Don’t quit because you feel like,
Don’t quit because it is about you…..

Jesus didn’t quit because he knew his disciples were watching his steps.

Abraham Lincoln,after 30 years of failure…yet he didn’t quit because he knew his determination would be a source of motivation to the world.

Benjamin Carson, even with a very hunble beginning, raised by a single mother and struggled to get to the top….yet he didn’t quit because he knew People like me would look up to him, read his books and watch his lifestyle.

Wherever you are,
Whatever poat you occupy,
Whatever that is being entrusted in your care…. always remember, before you quit… someone is busy watching …don’t make them feel limited because you decided to be limited….

Never Quit, when you quit..surely you have affected a life negatively.

I almost quit writing because I thought no one knows me, I felt I was just sowing in the air but later I realized I was sowing into fertile lives..

Someone is always watching you….who is watching?

Pals, NO success once you QUIT !


I always say to myself, “I am not a
quitter, I am failure!” I’d rather fail a
class three times and eventually pass it than quit
and resign myself to the idea that I “just
can’t get it.”
Most of the things you want in life
you CAN have, but only if you treat failure as a
part of the learning process. If you see failure
as an end, that makes you a QUITTER.
You can’t succeed at anything if you
quit. Don’t be a quitter, be a failure cuz Without a willingness to endure
failure you’ll never reach your goals.

*Michael Jordan*
It might come as a shock, but the man who
became what many would call the best basketball
player of all time didn’t make his high school
basketball team.
“I have missed more than 9,000 shots in my
career. I have lost almost 300 games. On 26
occasions I have been entrusted to take the
game winning shot, and I missed. I have failed
over and over and over again in my life. And that
is why I succeed.” – Michael Jordan

Thomas Edison was both hearing impaired and
fidgety. He only lasted three months in school
where his teachers said he was “too stupid to
learn anything.” He eventually was home schooled
by his mom. In talking about his invention of the
light bulb, he said:
“I have not failed. I’ve just found 10,000 ways
that do not work.” – Thomas Edison

When I was a kid I was obsessed with political
campaigns the way other kids were obsessed
with sports. During the 1992 Presidential
campaign there was no greater superstar-
whacko than Clinton’s political operative, James
Carville. With his shaved bald head, snake-like
facial features, and his deep Louisiana accent he
seemed like a man out of the Twilight Zone!
He’s now considered to be one of the greatest
political operatives of a generation. But, before
he ended up on that fateful campaign in his early
40’s he was dead broke, had won only a handful
of elections, and had never even been approved
for a credit card. On paper, he looked like a
complete failure. By not giving up he ended up in
the White House.
“No one will ever accuse James Carville of taking
himself seriously.” – James Carville
——– ——– ——– * *Ludwig van Beethoven*
His early skills at music and the violin were
decidedly less than impressive. His teachers
thought him hopeless. It was his father who saw
the potential in him and took over his education.
Beethoven slowly lost his hearing throughout his
life and yet, four of his greatest works were
composed when he was completely deaf.
“Beethoven can write music, thank God, because
he can’t do anything else!” – Ludwig van
Beethoven

* Christopher Reeve*
The man who played Superman becoming a
quadriplegic was more than ironic – it was
tragic. He never learned to be happy about
his situation – who could? But, he did learn
to live with it.
“In the morning, I need twenty minutes to
cry. To wake up and make that shift, you
know, and to just say, ‘This really sucks,’ to
really allow yourself the feeling of loss. It still
needs to be acknowledged.” – Christopher Reeve
Then, he’d say, “And now…forward!”
He had to take a moment everyday to
acknowledge where he was, what the reality of
the situation was. But, he didn’t allow that to
stop him. He traveled widely doing public
speaking on behalf of people with spinal injuries,
tirelessly raised money for his own and other
foundations, and even became a movie director.
He took what he had and tried to help others in
the best way he could.

Her childhood was frightful and filled with
horrible abuse and abject poverty. But, like most
successful people, Oprah doesn’t dwell on stuff
like that.
“I don’t think of myself as a poor deprived
ghetto girl who made good. I think of myself as
somebody who from an early age knew I was
responsible for myself, and I had to make
good.” – Oprah Winfrey

Remember this; “Some want it to happen, some wish it would happen, others make it happen.” – Michael Jordan

Now go make something happen !!

LIFE IS NEVER A RACE !!


*LIFE is never a RACE”

You don’t have to wait to see how people’s
success story would be published before you
write yours..
Is life really a deadly race? NO,it is not !
When you overspeed with life,you crash without
an Helmet..when we turn success into a do or
die race surely we are bound to face every
consequence..i know many will not agree with
me,because everyone wants to be successful at
all cost not minding the speed and
repercussions.. man-driving-sports-car-300x200. You don’t have to over speed
success, fast and steady would do it all..
Life is not a race,it is a Journey !
please don’t run too fast,remember if your
Destiny would take a step,you must also do,you
must never run faster than your DEstinY.
if you run too fast,you might have a very
CRITICAL CRASH without CORRECTION !
Life is meant to be lived with care and not carelessness,there are many people who are laying low to watch our downfall after a frantic race…
I don’t want to get there too early,
I don’t want to get there too late,
I want to get there at the right TIME!!
But when I turn success into a race, then places I ought to touch in life, I ignore them all because I want to achieve success before time…Japan_Ferraris_Accident_07cf7. .

**To Students who are still seeking for admission**
Don’t be frustrated because you are still at home without an admission, although it might be due to the fault of some of you who don’t read to prepare for exam.. But if it be that you have read and yet you are not admitted, there is a reason… Many which to STUDY law but they were offered another course and because they are so much in a hurry to gain admission, they decide to accept the offer for another course !! Why the frantic race into the UNIVERSITY !! And then you study a course that you can’t fulfilled with…

No one is saying you should not compete with people,BUT you only compete when you are sure to win… When you have done your home works on such race…

People who see life as a race don’t end up achieving all their dreams because they are so much focused on winning at all cost and not winning by VIRTUE ….

Please if you disagree with my article”Life is not a race” , you can wisely prove me wrong.

PAINFULLY letting GO !!!


aloNe1. It is rare to let things that means a lot to us fade away easily, We imagine how precious they are to us and then we wish those things never go/leave us..
Here is a true life story to prove how powerful the feelings we possess for people is, this story is meant for people who are going through such circumstances to know that they are never the first and they won’t be the last.
Thanks to the owner of the story”chris”,who willingly sent me his story to publish..

…..But all you have to do is just to “bitterly Let Go”

Chris, An undergraduate of a prestigious university met Esther(who was also a student and also a departmental colleague) and after few months of friendship,They started their relationship. This “everlasting relationship” started so great, and everything was moving on fine, they were so intimate, best of friends, they feel free with one another, they have fun, and they walk so closely with one another…
They became so close that they couldn’t do without one another, But there was one thing affecting them; Chris was an introvert while Esther was a complete Extrovert. Thus, this became the beginning of a ruckus in their relationship, Chris, being a quiet guy could not control his relationship because he could not control/correct Esther, little did they know before their relationship started sweeping down the drain, After two years of their everlasting relationship, Esther changed towards chris totally, she became so aggressive and embarrasses him anywhere she dims fit, she ridiculed him and made him feel unwanted and unrecognized, before they knew it, the relationship had already fallen apart. Esther, went to meet Chris and told him she was no more interested, within a short period of time; They broke up.
*** *** *** *** *** ***
Chris, who was intimately in love with Esther became so bored with life, his lifestyle changed and he became much of an introvert, Esther on the other hand felt the breath of freedom..
* **NOW, LET’s talk about Chris;
He had already loved Esther so much, he was so much addicted to her, he wouldn’t do anything without her, it was true love…. Months after their break up,Chris was still pleading with Esther to accept him back, but she shuns him each time he brings it up. He decided to be a good friend to her since they still see frequently, but little did he know that it was just the beginning of a heart break after HEArT BREAK. Chris, who was once a complete introvert decided to become an artificial extrovert just to make Esther realize that he still loves her, he started living a forcefully social life but yet he never knew his heart would still be shattered by his EX-
Chris, who had already started a new life of liveliness wanted Esther back but Esther hated him with passion, she walks with him but she lambastes him at any opportunity she sees, ignoring him and belittles him any time she wants… The most annoying part was that she deliberately started discussing issues of her numerous boyfriends with another friend even when. Chris was right beside her, she purposely spoke loud just to hurt the heart of Chris who was there.. Chris is currently having a tough time forgetting Esther, he sees other ladies as insignificant but still likes Esther who sees him as a nobody.
Chris is confused, He loves Esther, but loves him no more.. He wants to move on, but he doesn’t know how..

What advice would you give chris?
How should he treat Esther?
He really wants to move on…..

Quotes : Adapted from “Burden of Freedom”


Quotes:

Your position does not guarantee your disposition.

The only one who can change you is you.

If you really want to change, change your library,friends and influences.

Nothing in this world is worse than someone who does not understand what he possess

You can’t take hold of the new without first letting the Old go.

Irresponsible people are experts at transferring blame to others.

You can’t bring your best until you organize the rest

No one wants to take responsibilities for his actions,decisions,situations and circumstances, rather we blame others fo our failure!

A Letter From Hell !!


hell-lake

A YOUNG MAN’S LETTER FROM HELL

The following is a dramatic presentation. It
was written by a fictitious High School
Student named Josh, to a friend named
Zack.
Although Zack had every opportunity to tell
Josh about Jesus… he didn’t.

They were best friends. They played
soccer together. They went to classes
together. They partied together. They
shared their lives with each other.
But there is one thing Zack held back from
Josh… his personal relationship with Jesus
Christ.

»»The rest of the story is simple and sad…
A few too many beers… A tragic drive
home… A crash… a death, a funeral… A
Letter
Here is that letter… A letter from Hell.

Dear Zack,

I died today. It’s a lot different than I
expected. You see, I always thought that
dying would bring me to a world that is
foggy and hazy. But this place is crystal
clear… It’s even more real than my life on
Earth.
I can think. I can talk. I can even feel.
Right after the wreck I could feel my spirit
leaving my body. It was the weirdest thing,
Zack. I thought I heard you screaming out
to me, man. Must have been just imagining
things.
At first I was just standing in line, getting
registered I guess. They asked me for my
name…and began to look in this thing they
called the Book of Life.
I guess they couldn’t find it though because
this huge angel standing next to me
grabbed me by the arm and started
dragging me away. I was terrified. I had
no idea what was going on. I asked the
angel where he was taking me, but he didn’t
answer. So I asked him again…
Finally, he told me that only those, whose
names were written in the Book of Life,
could enter into Heaven and the rest would
be condemned to Hell forever.
Man I was scared. The angel threw me into
some kind of holding cell. Where I’ve been
sitting and thinking for a long long time. Do
you want to know what I’ve been thinking
about?
I’ve been thinking about YOU.
Zack, You’re a Christian.
You told me so yourself. I mean we talked
about it three different times today.
Kelly brought it up and you laughed it off.
Coach Adams brought it up and you changed
the subject.
I mean, it came up right before the wreck.
Well the question I can’t get out of my
mind is this, Zack. Why haven’t you ever
told me about how to become a Christian?
You say you are my friend, but if you
really were you would have told me about
this Jesus and told me how to escape this
terrible place that I’m headed for.
I can feel my heart pounding in my chest,
the angels who have been chosen to cast
me into hell are coming down the hallway. I
can hear their footsteps.
I have heard of this Hell. They call it the
Lake of Fire.
I can’t stand it, Zack. I am terrified. No!
The angels are at the door. Oh no, no!
They’re coming in and they’re pointing at
me. They’re grabbing me and carrying me
out of the room.
I already can smell the burning sulfur and
brimstone. I can see the edge of the cliff
where Hell burns.
This is it. I am without hope.
We’re coming closer, closer, closer. My
heart is bursting with fear. They’re holding
me over the flames. I am damned forever.
This is it. They are throwing me in. Fire,
Pain, HELL.
Why Zack? Why didn’t you ever tell me
about Jesus?
Your friend,
Josh.

I Wish you were here.

aaluv
7 ways to tell if I am in love; >>>WITH pastor Enoch Akinbajo {Ruth and Boaz Ministry}

This is about true LOvE and not LUsT.
This seven evidence will give you a hint. . .remember, never give infatuation a chance !!

-YOU discover that you begin to have deeper feelings and concern for such person more than other friends.
Note: feelings are not reliable, it fluctuates and not all feelings can be expressed

-YOU discover that you enjoy spending time with that person,not feeling any guilt or regret afterwards.

-YOU discover that you want to do more to help that person to be his/her best, but not to the extent of hurting God.
Note:love is giving but giving is not love.

-YOU discover that you feel very safe with that person and you discuss deep issues that you can’t discuss with other people.

-YOU discover that you are no longer shy or ashamed with that person,even when they tell you all the truth about you.

-YOU discover you always pray for that person or about that person.

-YOU discover that other people see it even before you realize that you are in love.

IF. You are not so satisfied with all this,then you must involve the Holyspirit to Lead you aright.

Note: This might not be common to many… But it is a true experience.
