I was standing around in an area that has a bus stop frequently used by workers from both the public and private sectors. And on that fateful day, all I heard from those workers who were going home after closing from work was complaint and lamentation about their jobs and their pay. Almost every one of them seemed miserable and dissatisfied with their job and the income they were getting from it.

This is the mindset of average people – to complain about their jobs and the satisfaction they get from it. No matter what you do, magnify to yourself the importance of your work. There are no small jobs only small workers. Most people fail to realize that when you do your job haphazardly or in a mean way, it doesn’t reflect the job, but it does reflect you.

The way you carry out your daily assignments or go about your business daily is a mirror reflecting the world the sort of an individual you are. “The character of an individual shines through his task.” Too many people are not giving their best on their jobs because they think the job is beneath them or the environment isn’t fun. Folks you can find satisfaction and fun on any job if you took it differently and changed your perception of the job. Continue reading How to Get Satisfaction and Fun on Your Job

I went to the inner part of the city I live this past week, and there I saw something I haven’t seen in many, many years now; Men and youths gathering around to play board games, and argue of trifle matters and events.

As I stopped for a while to really try to analyse the situation in my head, I still couldn’t understand why people with so much abilities could be “idling” or “killing time” so early in the day. So when I met with the person I went to meet with in the area, I asked him, why are these able bodied people wasting their lives?

To that he responded; “you haven’t seen anything yet. There are no opportunities.”

Do you or someone you know think this way? That you don’t have opportunities or resources to prosper and have a great life in our economy today?

The truth you must know is, for anyone who has the ability, there is always opportunity available. Just as the fields wait for the plough, and the sea wait for the ships and boats, so does God stand ready to corporate with you in your labours, and to reward you according to your diligence and industry.

The statement, “There are no jobs, no opportunities, or nothing for me to do with my ability” is either an expression of vanity, an excuse for negligence, or a confession of lack of mental resource, or of inability to utilize opportunity.

There are numerous opportunities to prosper today. In fact so many people have proven that a downturn in the economy presents a big opportunity for those who have the ability to think and look beyond the obvious, and who also have the capacity for work.

Daily Wisdom

Ever heard the phrase, “If you cannot do what you like, then like what you do.” That is one of the secrets of a truly successful life. In life you may be sometimes required to do things you don’t like; jobs that are below your qualifications, assignments that are far inferior to you. If you are in this position remember the phrase above and a message in scripture that says, whatever you find to do, do it with all your heart as on to God.

If you are presently finding it difficult to achieve success in any area of your life, just trust God who is able to make a way for you. Have faith in God and take whatever he gives you; believe that you can succeed; be willing to fail if He wants you to have the discipline of failure.

The Test of Faith


He knows the way that I take; when he has tested me, I will come forth as gold. (Job 23:10)

“The strongest trees are found not in the thick shelter of the forest but out in the open, where winds from every direction bear down upon them. The fierce winds bend and twist them until they become giant in stature. These are the trees that tool makers seek for handles for their tools, because of the wood’s great strength.” It is the same with anyone who desires to live a great life. The path to greatness isn’t one where the sun always shines, and things are always so easy. Instead the path is often steep, rocky, and narrow, where the storms, challenges, obstacles, frustrations of life will try to knock you off your feet. Where the betrayals of loved ones, will cut you, and enemies will try to destroy you.

Living your greatest life requires great faith. And great faith can only come when you are tested. When you are faced with suffering, tears, trials, conflicts, hardships, dangers, beatings, persecutions, misunderstanding, trouble, etc, yet you know that “in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. Yes, in all these (even during storms, when the winds are the most intense) we are more than conquerors. “You may be tempted to run from the ordeal of a fierce storm of testing, but head straight for it! God is there to meet you in the centre of each trial And He will whisper to you His secrets, which will bring you out with a radiant face and such an invincible faith that all the demons of hell will never be able to shake it.” Continue reading The Test of Faith
