“If there is no enemy within, the enemy outside can do us no harm”. Old African Proverb
We often stand in the way of our dreams becoming a reality. We have become our own worst enemy and not our own biggest fan. When we look in the mirror, we don’t see the greatness in the eyes that are reflecting back at us but rather we see our failures and mistakes. We are quicker to see our failures and shortcomings than we are to acknowledge our achievements and success. We have become victims of our circumstances and not victors.
In my youth I shall serve a purpose
When Hector Pieterson woke up that morning of June 16, 1976 he did not know that by the end of the day he would have served a great purpose and lived a mark of greatness that would be spoken about years and years. At only 12 years old when he lost his life, age is surely nothing but a number; he will always be remembered as a great icon. Today there is a memorial and museum named after him, in memory of him and the rest of the people who died on that day.
WHAT IS YOUR VISION?
A vision is mental picture of your desired future. It is a mental picture of where you would love to see yourself, your business, your school or organization, in the future.
Dr Bill Winston said: “Your feet will never take you where your mind has never been
Frustration is caused by trying to hit a target that you cannot see.
Philippians 4:8: “Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable – if anything is excellent or praiseworthy – think about such things.”
Our past mistakes and failures have a way of creeping back into our minds. When we allow these thoughts to stay in our mind for a long time, or we meditate on them, we find it extremely difficult to move forward because we are stuck in the past. The past is not a place of residence but a place of reference.
Forgiveness gives Freedom
“I’m sorry, I forgive you”
As simple as these read. They are the hardest words to say.
Les Brown,“The graveyard is the richest place on earth, because it is here, that you will find all the hopes and dreams that were never fulfilled, the books that were never written, the songs that were never sung, the inventions that were never shared, the cures that were never discovered, all because someone was too afraid to take that first step, keep with the problem, or determined to carry out their dream.” Les Brown
The perception about clothes is everywhere around the world and can be segmented to regions and sub-cultures and many other things, in the black community you can call it “hoods”, townships or ghettos if you wear suits from a young age, teenage years, people don’t take you seriously and you are just not ‘cool’, they basically summarize your life that your probably a church person. While in urban communities like suburbs, Europe, wearing a suit is the coolest thing and they judge your social class with the suits and lifestyles, wearing expensive suites is a signal that you have made it and that you are well-off.

Time is one the difference between tomorrow and today, it is the line that we draw between minutes and seconds, it is what tells us if something in great or not. It is the line which tells us if something has come to its full state or not.
