Memorable quotes


It is not often that one comes across a life changing quote. I have always been a great lover of good quotes because they inspire, encourage and comfort, depending on the situation you find yourself in. I hope you will find the following quotes inspiring and helpful:
“I expect to pass through this world but once; any good thing therefore that I can do, or any kindness that I can show to any fellow creative, let me do it now; let me not defer or neglect it, for I shall not pass this way again.” Ettiene De Grellet 1773-1855
“Only one life ’twill soon be past. Only what’s done for Christ will last. ” Unknown
“Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense.” Ralph Waldo Emerson
“Men are anxious to improve their circumstances, but are unwilling to improve themselves. They therefore remain bound.” James Allen- “As A Man Thinketh” book.
“They envy the distinction I have won; let them therefore, envy my toils, my honesty, and the methods by which I gained it.” Sallust, 86BC – 34BC
“This is the true join in life, the being used for a purpose recognized by yourself as a mighty one; the being thoroughly worn out before you are thrown on the scrap heap; the being a force of Nature instead of a feverish selfish little clod of ailments and grievances complaining that the world will not devote itself to making you happy. George Bernard Shaw, 1856 – 1950
“Educating the mind without educating the heart is no education at all.” Aristotle
“At the end of each day, you should play back the tapes of your performance. The results should either applaud you or prod you.” Jim Rohn

The 'Awesome' Power of Your Words: Pt 2

In this last installment on the “Awesome Power of Words”, it is my desire that you become fully aware of the effects of the words you say to others as well as to yourself. Bear in mind that ,”As a man thinks so is he.” Do you desire to become a successful network marketer? Then speak success. Do you desire to be healthy? Then by all means ’speak’ and eat healthy. For any challenge that may come your way, instead of asking, “Why me?”… in faith, speak to that mountain.
May the following declarations empower you to reach new levels in your life whether you are an employer, employee, sportsman, or entrepreneur. Although the declarations are adapted from the Bible, they are for anyone who longs to make progress in life.
“Never Again….”
Never again will I confess FAILURE because, “Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him that loved us” Romans 8:37
Never again will I confess “I CAN’T” for “I can do all things through Christ which strengthens me” Philippians 4:13.
Never again will I confess FEAR, for “God hath not given me the spirit of fear, but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind” 11 Timothy 1:7
Never again will I confess DEFEAT, for “God always causeth me to triump in Christ Jesus” 11 Corinthians 2:14
Never again will I confess WORRIES and FRUSTRATIONS, for I am “Casting all my cares upon Him who careth for me” 1 Peter 5:7.
Never again will I confess DOUBT and LACK of FAITH, for “God hath given to every man the measure of faith” Romans 12:3
Never again will I confess FRUSTRATION, for “Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee” Isaiah 26:3
Never again will I confess UNWORTHINESS because “He hath made Him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in Him” 11 Corinthians 5:21.
Never again will I confess CURSES and BAD LUCK, for “Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: that the blessing of Abraham might come on the Gentiles through Jesus Christ; that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith” Galatians 3:13-14.
Never again will I confess FEAR of the future, “but as it is written, eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love Him, but God hath revealed them unto us by His Spirit,” 1 Corinthians 2:9-10.
Never again will I confess TROUBLES because Jesus said, “In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world” John 16:33.
My final word is learning without implementation does not produce the results that you are seeking. Therefore learn, implement and achieve success

The 'Awesome' Power of Your Words: Pt 1

Whatever your field of endevour, words are a potent force that you can harness and utilise to your advantage or disadvantage. Words have the power to build or to destroy as events below will show how the course of history was changed both positively and negatively due to the power of words.
Martin Luther King used words(not stones or guns) that touched and impacted the hearts of millions of people the world over. His dream speech started the process of eradicating racism in America.
Dictators like Hitler successfully used the power of words negatively for devilish ambitions. As a result, more than six million Jews lost their lives.
We all remember the mass killings that followed after the leadership of one tribe in Rwanda used the power of words( through radio and word of mouth) to incite their followers to embark on a massacre of genocidal proportions against their fellow citizens belonging to another tribe.
Motivational speakers like the late Jim Rohn inspired and changed many people’s lives using the power of words in a positive way.
Tony Robbin is transforming people’s lives by inspiring them to become all they were meant to be, again using the power of words to actualise his dream.
God created the Universe with words.
More than two thousand years ago, Jesus Christ’s words ignited the hearts of many people to preach the gospel and continues to do so even as I write this article. This is the power of both spoken and written words that has the ability to shift everything in our lives momentarily.
The question you may be asking is how do I go about using words to shape my destiny as an internet intrepreneur.
The first step is to start by conducting a self dialogue , to cause an inward revolution deep down in your heart , soul and mind. This will lead you to decide on the person and future lifestyle you desire. Once you are clear on the path that you would like to follow, think of the words (mantra or slogan ) that you want to feed your mind on , depending on what your dreams are. For instance ,if you want to achieve mastery in internet marketing,a catch-phrases like ‘I ‘m a successful Internet Marketer ‘, repeated daily will set you on this path.
The second step is to take deliberate action in order to consolidate and reinforce the above words into your mind. They say it takes 21 days to create a habit. Why not do that for a better future. Its worthwhile. Take advantage of technology and have the affirmations on your desktop , pin them onto the walls of your bedroom and your study as well. You can also listen to these affirmations on CDs/Mp3 player/iPod that will repeat the words that inspire and motivate you.
The third step is to surround yourself with like- minded people. These are buddies you know will speak your language because they are also seeking what you are after. Be very selective of books you read, movies that you watch and the seminars that you attend. Repeatedly tell yourself ‘I am getting better everyday’,'I am a winner’.
When I decided to become an internet marketer I was not good with computers at all. I could only check my email. My problem was that I was constantly reminding myself that I will never understand how the internet works.That conversation within myself amounted to a confession, that instantly filled me with self-pity and a sense of defeat, thus robbing myself of the power of initiative. Its like a poison in your body that paralyses you or even kills you.
Words are indeed powerful as they can work for us or against us. Part 2 of this subject will give a list of motivational words to inspire us in our daily life

Success With Integrity!

How often have you heard someone make a statement like, “I will succeed at any cost”? While there is nothing wrong with such a declaration as it is designed to empower, it has however, been misinterpreted by others to justify doing immoral things, all in the name of achieving success. It is the intention of this article to remind aspiring and existing entrepreneurs that the process of pursuing success is just as important as succeeding.
If you allow the desire to achieve success cause you to fulfill your dream by bad-mouthing others, walking over dead bodies, it becomes bad success.
If you achieve success by mistreating, backstabbing, violating other people’s rights and doing whatever is necessary to achieve your goals even if it hurts others, then such success becomes meaningless and selfish.
If, on the other hand, you choose to assist others as you rise to the top, and you determine within your heart to treat people kindly and with The Golden Rule in mind at all times, then you will not have to focus on success, it will simply come to you. History shows us clearly that helping others succeed is one of the best ways to attain your own success and increase the level of positivity in the world. Giving back to your Community, sharing your methods with others who can also benefit, and lifting up the spirit of the down-trodden are more the measure of success than money ever could be.
If you want to achieve good success without regret, you must elect to be a business person of honesty and integrity.The word integrity implies completeness,wholeness,and being able to make a promise and keeping it. It is important to maintain your integrity in all your dealings at all times. An entrepreneur of integrity does not wear a mask, but strives to be fair, genuine and treats all with the same respect and courtesy. As an entreprenuer myself, I am forever mindful to never let my burning desire to become successful blind me to what is morally right and honourable.
However, being a business person of integrity is easier said than done, but it will make you stand out above the rest. You will build character that will surely help you achieve lasting success in life, and its a beautiful thing.
I like what Clarence E. Hodges had to say about the role of integrity in success, “Your integrity will affect your destiny. Don’t leave home without it.”
Let me conclude by quoting from the Holy Book, “A good name is more desirable than great riches; to be esteemed is better than silver or gold”. Proverbs 22:1

Believe In Yourself

The biggest question that bother many of us is that, why is it that some people seem to succeed at whatever they do, and yet some continue a life of struggle despite being talented and even highly educated. A closer look at the successful made me conclude that they have one thing in common and that is they believe in themselves. These are the individuals who know that in order to obtain the results they want in this life, the starting point is in believing in their own abilities, period. They believe in their in-built God given potential whole-heartdly, and do what the fearful majority are afraid of doing due to their lack of belief in themselves.
Today, I would like to challenge , encourage and inspire aspiring business people who have been hesitant to start their own online internet businesses because of not believing in their abilities. I have put together a collection of what I regard as some of the greatest ‘Believe in yourself’ quotes ever. Enjoy.
1.” Believe in yourself! Have faith in your abilities. Without a humble but reasonable confidence in your own powers you cannot be successful or happy.” – Norman Vincent Peale
2.”You are in charge of your feelings, beliefs, and actions. And you teach others how to have toward you. While you cannot change other people, you can influence them through your own behaviors and actions. By being a living role model of what you want to receive from others, you create more of what you want in your life.” – Eric Allenbough
3. “Nobody can make you feel inferior without your consent” – Eleanor Roosevelt
4. “It’s not who you are that holds you back, it’s who you think you’re not.” Anonymous
5. “He does not believe who does not live according to his belief.” – Thomas Fuller
6. “Self-confidence and a belief in yourself is a must. To instill confidence in others, you first must have confidence in yourself”. – Byron and Catherine Pulsifier, from Good-bye Manager, Hello Coach!
7. “My father gave me the greatest gift anyone could give another person, he believed in me”. - Jim Valvano
8. “The most important thing is God’s blessing and if you believe in God and you believe in your self, you have nothing to worry about.” – Mohamed Al Fayed
9. “God didn’t have time to make a nobody, only a somebody. I believe that each of us has God-given talents within us waiting to be brought to fruition.” – Mary Kay Ash
10. ”There are two ways to slide easily through LIFE: to believe everything or to doubt everything; both ways save us from thinking.” Alred Korbzybski
11. “If you feel inferior to someone else, it is because of your own beliefs”.- Catherine Pulsifer, from Inferior Without Consent
12. “Your belief determines your action and your action determines your result ,but first you have to believe.” - Mark Victor Hansen
13. “Keep your dreams alive. Understand that to achieve anything requires faith and belief in yourself, vision, hard work, determination, and dedication. Remember all things are possible for those who believe.”- Gail Devers
14. “Self-esteem is a huge piece of my work. You have to believe it’s possible and believe in yourself. Because after you’ve decided what you want, you have to believe it’s possible, and possible for you, not just for other people. Then you need to seek out models, mentors, and coaches.” – Jack Canfield
15. “If you believe that some day it’s going to happen, some day it probably will happen – You just have to make sure you’re there when it’s happening, and ideally you’re at the front of the parade, and the principle, beneficiary of when it happens, but it’s not a kind of thing where you just sort of sit back and wait.” – Steve Case

A Positive Approach is a Prerequisite for Success

In the course of operating their businessess entrepreneurs meet challenging situations on a daily basis. However, its how they react that determines their altitude. It is very important for the business owner to know the value of challenges. That challenges are meant to make us strong, many of the great achievers we see today turned obstacles into stepping stones and in the end became successful beyond measure.
Today, I have decided to share a story which I am sure will help to make us appreciate the role of obstacles in our different situations . Lets learn to welcome challenges for our own growth.
Positive Approach
By: Author Unknown
A little girl walked daily to and from school. Though the weather that morning was questionable and clouds were forming, she made her daily trip to school. As the afternoon progressed, the winds whipped up, along with thunder and lighting.
The mother of the little girl felt concerned that her daughter would be frightened as she walked home from school, and she herself feared that the electrical storm might harm her child.
Following the roar of thunder, lightning, through the sky and full of concern, the mother quickly got in her car and drove along the route to her child’s school.
As she did so, she saw her little girl walking along, but at each flash of lightning, the child would stop, look up and smile. Another and another were to follow quickly, each with the little girl stopping, looking up and smiling.
Finally, the mother called over to her child and asked, “What are you doing?”
The child answered, smiling, “God just keeps taking pictures of me”.

Passion Week

1. Arrival in Bethany Friday  John 12:1
    Jesus arrived in Bethany six days before the Passover to spend some time with his friends, Many, Martha 
    and Lazarus.  While here, Mary anointed his feet with costly perfume as an act of humanity.  This tender
    expression indicated Mary's devotion to Jesus and her willingness to serve him.

2. SABBATH  Saturday
    Since this day was the Sabbath, the Lord spent the day in traditional fashion with his friends.

3. The Triumphal Entry  Sunday Mt 21:1:11; Mrk 11:1-11; Lk 19:28-44; Jn 12:12-19
    On the first day of the week Jesus rode into Jerusalem on a donkey, fulfilling an ancient prophecy (Zec
    9:9).  The crowd welcomed him with "Hosanna" and the words of Ps 118:25-26, thus ascribing to him a Messianic title as the agent of the  Lord, the coming King of Israel.

4. Clearing of the Temple  Monday  Mt 21:10-17; Mk 11:15-18; lK 19:45-48
    On this day he returned to the temple and found the court of the Gentiles full of traders and money
    changers making a large profit as they gave out Jewish coins in exchange for "pagan" money.  Jesus drove 
    them out and overturned their tables.

5. Day of Controversy and Parables  Tuesday Mt 21:23-24:51; Mk 11:27-13:37; Lk 20:1-21:36
    In Jerusalem - Jesus evaded the traps set by the priests.
    On the Mount of Olives Overlooking Jerusalem - He taught in parables and warned the people against the
    Pharisees.  He predicted the destruction of Herod's great temple and told his disciples about future events,
    including his own return.

6. Day of Rest   Wednesday (not mentioned in the Gospels)
    The Scriptures do not mention this day, but the counting of the days (Mk 14:1; Jn 12:1) seems to indicate
    that there was another day concerning which the Gospels record nothing.

7. Passover Last Supper   Thursday  Mt 26: 17-30; Mk 14:12-26; Lk 22: 7-23; Jn 13:1-30
    In an upper room Jesus prepared both himself and his disciples for his death. He gave the Passover meal
    a new meaning.  The loaf of bread and cup of wine represented his body soon to be sacrificed and his
    blood soon to be shed.  And so he instituted the "Lord's Supper."  After singing a hymn they went to the
    Garden of Gethsemane, where Jesus prayed in agony, knowing what lay ahead for him.

8. Crucifixion  Friday  Mt 27:1-66; Mk 15:1-47;  Lk 22:66-23:56; Jn 18:28-19:37
    Following betrayal, arrest, desertion, false trials, denial, condemnation, beatings and mockery, Jesus was
    required to carry his cross to "The Place of the Skull," where he was crucified with two other prisoners.

9. In the Tomb  Friday Mt 27:57-61; Mk 15:42-47; Lk 23:50-56; Jn 19:38-42
    Jesus' body was placed in the tomb before 6:00 p.m Friday night, when the Sabbath began and all work
    stopped, and it lay in the tomb throughout the Sabbath.

10. Resurrection  Sunday  Mt 28:1-13; Mk 16: 1-20; Lk 24: 1-49; Jn 20: 1-31
      Early in the morning, women went to the tomb and found that the stone closing the tomb's entrance had
      rolled back.  An angel told them Jesus was alive and gave them a message.  Jesus appeared to Mary
      Magdalene in the garden, to Peter, to two disciples on the road to Emmaus, and later that day to all the
     disciples but Thomas.  His resurrection was established as a fact.
