David's armour didn't fit.
John Mark was rejected by Paul.
Timothy had ulcers.
Amos' only training was in the school of fig-tree pruning.
Jacob was a liar.
David had an affair.
Solomon was too rich.
Abraham was too old.
David was too young.
Peter was afraid of death.
Lazarus was dead.
John was self-righteous.
Naomi was a widow.
Paul was a murderer.
So was Moses.
Jonah ran from God.
Miriam was a gossip.
Gideon and Thomas both doubted.
Jeremiah was a bullfrog;
Just kidding -- he was depressed and suicidal.
Elijah was burned out.
Martha was a worry-wart.
Mary may have been lazy.
Samson had long hair.
Noah got drunk, and that's not all.
Did I mention that Moses had a short fuse?
But God doesn't require any job interview.
He doesn't hire and fire like most bosses,
because He's more our Dad than our Boss.
He doesn't look at financial gain or loss.
He's not prejudiced or partial, not judging, grudging,
sassy, or brassy, not deaf to our cry, not blind to our need.
He says come, let us reason together.
Accept His invitation and Experience Transformation.

Nothing great in the world has been accomplished without passion.If you work just for money, you’ll never make it, but if you love what you’re doing and you always put the customer first, success will be yours.” Success is peace of mind, which is a direct result of self-satisfaction in knowing you did your best to become the best that you are capable of becoming.” Success is never final. Failure is never fatal. It’s courage that counts.” To be a winner, work with winners.” For the best and fastest way to learn a sport is to watch and imitate a champion.” A man only learns in two ways, one by reading, and the other by associating with smarter people.
The person determined to achieve maximum success learns the principle that progress is made one step at a time. A house is built one brick at a time. Football games are won a play at a time. A department store grows bigger one customer at a time. Every big accomplishment is a series of little accomplishments
GET GOING NOW!
Instead of thinking about what you’re missing, try thinking about what you have that everyone else is missing.”
When people look at things that are, and ask, ‘Why?’ You you see things that never have been, and ask, ‘Why not
Don’t brood over past failures and obstacles. 'To get something you never had, you have to do something you never did.
Never measure the height of a mountain until you have reached the top. Then you will see how low it was.”
Remember, the whistle will not sound, unless you win.

Lyrics: You are beautiful beyond description, Too marvelous for words, Too wonderful for comprehension, Like nothing ever seen or heard, Who can grasp Your infinite wisdom, Who can fathom the depths of your love, You are beautiful beyond description, Majesty, enthroned above, Chorus: And I stand, I stand in awe of You, I stand, I stand in awe of You, Holy God to whom all praise is due, I stand in awe of You.

If u Don't, he says u are PROUD.
If u DRESS Nicely, he says u are trying to LURE him;
If u Don't, he says u a! re from KAMPUNG.
If u ARGUE with him, he says u are STUBBORN;
If u keep QUIET, he says u have no BRAINS.
If u are SMARTER than him, he'll lose FACE;
If he's Smarter than u, he is GREAT.
If u don't Love him, he tries to PO! SSESS u;
If u Love him, he will try to LEAVE u.(very true huh?).
If u don't make love with him., he says u don't Love him;
If u do!! he says u are CHEAP.
If u tell him your PROBLEM, he says u are TROUBLESOME;
If u don't, he says that u don't TRUST him.
If u SCOLD him, u are like a NANNY to him;
If he SCOLDS u, it is because he CARES for u.

If u send this to guys, they will swear that it's not true.......but if u don't, they say u are selfish.....
Accept his luv, he thinks you want his favour
Resent it, he thinks you’re conceited
Let him kiss you and make luv to you, he thinks you’re cheap
Act reserved, he thinks you’re frigid
Ignore him, he thinks you despise him
Have him alone, he thinks no else can have you
Combine him with others, he thinks you’re insatiable
Talk of love & kids, he thins he wants you to marry him
When you give without demand, he thinks you’re a fool
Accept his gifts, he thinks you’re a gold digger
Refuse it, he thinks you’re playing hard to get
When you become too understanding, he takes you for a ride
Confront him wit the truth, he thinks youre being bitchy
Bless them o' lord, for we need them.
Men Are A Confused Bunch

YOU HAVE AN ASSIGNMENT TO FULFIL IN THIS WORLD ON YOUR WAY TO SUCCESS, AND THAT IS:
TO PLANT COURAGE IN THE DISGOURAGED,
TO PUT SOLUTION IN OUR GENERATION,
TO BE A MOTIVATOR TO THOSE WHO FACE MOLESTATION,
TO TELL THE BARREN TO PREPARE FOR BEARING.
ALTHOUGH YOU AND I FACE TIMES OF TRIALS, WE UNDERSTAND THAT IF GOLD IS OUR CHOICE, FURNACE MUST BE OUR PASSAGE, WE FACE CONFRONTATION FOR GOD'S CONFIRMATION,WE ARE HERE TO RULE AND NOT TO BE RULED, FOR THIS PROCLAMATION, WE FACE TEMPTATION, UNTIL WE ARE PROVED, WE CAN'T BE APPROVED.
EVERY MANTLE IS WON IN BATTLE. BATTLE IS NOT TO BE ASSUMED BUT TO BE RESUMED. IT'S NOT AN OPTION BUT A COMPULSION. IT IS WHEN WE GO THROUGH AND NOT IF WE GO THROUGH 'COS UNTIL WE GO THROUGH, WE ARE NOT THROUGH, WE ARE THROUGH YET. NEVERTHELESS, IN YOUR BATTLE DON'T BE BAFFLED JUST BE SETTLED.
BELOVED, IT'S TOO LATE TO GO BACK 'COS THE BUSINESS OF LOOKING BACK IS AN UNPROFITABLE ONE. RIDE ON; MARCH ON; I BELIEVE IN YOU; I CELEBRATE YOU; YOUR'S IS MY VISION; YOUR DAY IS NOT OVER BUT CLOSER. NEVER FORGET THAT YOUR EXPECTED END IS YOUR RESPECTED END.
MAKE UP YOUR MIND AND IMPART SOMETHING POSITIVE TO THOSE AROUND YOU. THAT LITTLE THING CALLED THE SEED OF GREATNESS IN YOU WILL END UP BEING EVERYTHING TOMORROW. YOUR NOTHING WILL BECOME SOMETHING.
THE ROAD OR PATHWAY TO SUCCESS WILL TAKE YOU THROUGH THE GATE OF DECISION, ACCROSS THE BRIDGE OF PATIENCE AND CLIMBING UP THE HILL OF DETERMIONATION.
YOU WILL GET THERE AND WE'LL SEE AT THE TOP.
Take care and remember that you are just Unstoppable.
1. Love doesn’t make the world go round. Love is what makes the ride more worthwhile.
2. Life is made up of years that mean nothing compared to moments that mean all.
3. Life’s incomplete business won’t cease unless life ceases itself. Since you’ve got life in you, keep moving on.
4. Decisions are a waste of time, unless we follow them with an immediate action. Take a right decision now, and back it up with ACTION.
5. Always remember, others may hate u. But those who hate you don’t win unless you hate them back. Love them instead.
6. The Ideal person bears the accidents of life with dignity and grace, and makes the best of circumstances.
7. People will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.
8. Some of us will find Happiness if we quit struggling so desperately for it.
THE WAVES OF DESTINY (W.O.D)
IS NOT A MATTER OF CHANCE,
IT IS A MATTER OF CHOICE.
IT IS NOT A THING TO BE WAITED FOR,
WHAT ARE U DESTINED TO ACHIEVE TODAY?
CHANGE THE WORLD:
Our world is but a reflection of who we are. Therefore, if we want to change the world, all we have to do is change ourselves. We don’t need to change our parents for raising their voices at us, but rather, we need to listen to them carefully when they speak.
We don’t need to change those who treat us like little kids, but rather act more maturely around them. We don’t also need to change our supervisors or bosses for not trusting us, but rather do an outstanding job consistently and gain their trust.
This world is not something mystical or unknown. The world is the exact reflection of that which we choose to ignore about ourselves. The way to change the world is not by changing the world itself, but by changing ourselves.
FOLLOW YOUR DREAM:
To change the world, you must follow your dream. Yes, follow your dream, take one step at a time, but just continue climbing. Follow your dream, if you stumble, don’t stop; keep your eyes on your goal, and press on to the top. When you’re at the top, you can see the whole view and you can see all what you have done so far and that which you can still do.
Is the pursuit of your dream like the climbing of a steep mountain? The climbing can be long, agonizing, and seemingly never ending. Only you can tell which mountain you have left unclimbed. There need to be no pretense with yourself. Are you climbing over your mountain, or are you celebrating on the peak of a smaller one? The minute you settle for less than you deserve, you get even less than you settled for.
When things go wrong, as they sometimes will, when the road you’re trudging seems all uphill, as they sometimes would, when the funds are low and the debts are high, you want to smile, but you have to sigh, I say take a REST if you must REST, but don’t you call it quit yet.
Often, the goal is nearer than it seems to a faint and faltered man. Most often, the struggler might have given up when he’s just about capturing the victory cup. Success like you know, is failure turned inside out. It may be near when it seems afar; Just stick to the fight when you’re hardest hit, for it’s when things seem worse that you must not quit. Keep in mind that making it is not a place to get, but a constant process that we all must undergo.
Right now, we might be making it, though it might not feel like we are. Do remember that most of the important things in the world have been accomplished by people who have kept on trying when there seemed to be no hope at all.
..................see you at the top.

A young boy once asked his dad how much he is earning per day. The dad refused to tell him. After much questions, he finally told his 10year old son dat he earns just 50 dollars per day. So the boy smiled and said daddy i asked u bcos i want u to give me just 25 dollars. The dad became angry and drove him away.
So the boy was sad and went straight to his room to bed. Later, the dad was angry with himself and tot dat he was harsh to d boy and dat he should hav asked him what he wanted to do with the money....so he went to meet d boy in his room...and apologised and asked d boy...son, what do u need d money for...d boy had tears in his eyes, so the dad gave him the 25 dollars...so the boy opened his shelf and brought some other money he had.
Suddenly, the dad became more angry and said ...so u even had money, but why ask me..so the boy simply said...dad, with this money you gave me, i now hav complete 25 dollars. I will giv u dis whome money now 50 dollars tomoro morning...d dad asked why and d boy simply said...i just want to buy your TIME SO DAT YOU WILL STAY AT HOME AND SPEND DINNER WITH ME...the dad now broke down in tears....
Now do you know that what we have, we dont value, but what we tend to loose, we value them much later....If only u can just dedicate some more time to som aspects of ur life, you will stay and remain happier than you are presently.....because when we loose our jobs, it will be painful to us only for a while and we can still get another one, but when we loose a loved one, we cant get them again and the pain would linger forever.......FOOD FOR THOUGHT .
Just a smile would go a long way. Its cheap and costs nothing.....smile to someone and appreciate all that you meet. Someone you dont know needs it.

He never misses a season but one day he's in a bit of a hurry and accidentally grabs his umbrella instead of his gun. So, he's walking in the woods near a creek and suddenly spots a beaver in some brush in front of him. He raises his umbrella, points it at the beaver, squeezes the handle, and BAM! the beaver drops dead in front of him." That's impossible," said the old man in disbelief, "someone else must have shot that beaver!" ”Exactly,” said the doctor. …….how come is ur wifeee pregnant???

A friend who has received chemotherapy and is now receiving radiation at Princess Margaret Hospital for breast cancer revealed what they have now found out as causes of breast cancer. The person with the cancer has been told by the hospital to only use Deodorant rather than an anti-perspirant. The reasons are outlined in the letter below.
Sometime ago in a Breast-Cancer-Awareness seminar. During the Questions and Answers period, it was asked why the most common area for breast cancer was near the arm pit. The leading cause of breast cancer is the use of anti-perspirants.
A concentration of toxins leads to cell mutations, a.k.a.CANCER. Yes, ANTI-PERSPIRANT. Most of the products out there are an anti-perspirant/deodorant combination, so go home and check. Deodorant is fine, anti-perspirant is not.
The human body has a few areas that it uses to purge toxins from the body - behind the knees, behind the ears, the groin area, and armpits. The toxins are purged in the form of perspiration. Anti-perspirant, as the name clearly indicates, prevents you from perspiring, thereby
Inhibiting the body from purging toxins from below the armpits. These toxins do not just magically disappear. Instead, the body deposits them in the lymph nodes below the arms since it cannot sweat them out. Nearly all breast cancer tumors occur in the upper outside quadrant of the breast area. This is precisely where the lymph nodes are located.
Additionally, men are less likely (but not completely exempt) to develop breast cancer prompted by anti-perspirant usage because most of the anti-perspirant product is caught in their hair and is not directly applied to the skin. Sprays are the exception to this rule.
Women who apply anti-perspirant right after shaving increase the risk further because shaving causes almost imperceptible nicks in the skin which give the chemicals entrance into the body from the armpit area.
Breast cancer is becoming frighteningly common. This awareness may save lives. Re-think your daily use of a product that could ultimately lead to a terminal illness.
Napoleon Hill, the author of Think and Grow Rich, believes that a person does not have to be a genius to become rich. Any person can become wealthy if they think positively and have a deep desire to achieve their goals.
POSITIVE THINKING: You must see your financial dreams and know that you will be able to attain them. You must already own them.
If you begin making up every rationalization under the sun why you can't succeed, pinch yourself. You have to discipline your body and mind to think positive thoughts.
Teach yourself that those kind of thought patterns are unacceptable. You can obtain greatness, even if you are not the smartest, most talented, or best looking person in the world.
Success is yours if you'll just allow it to come into your life. Don't underestimate the power of your thoughts.
2. Put all your energy into that dream.
3. Be willing to do menial work at first.
4. Visualize your dream.
5. Form a strategy.
6. Endure through the hard times.
7. Eliminate any way to retreat
Don't forget, to successful people, there is no such thing as "defeat." What looks like defeat is no more than a great opportunity. Start creating opportunities out of failures and being successful today!
In all that you do, try as much to put in your best, and do the very best you can. Commit the rest to God, and for sure your mind will be at rest for God will surely see to the rest.
If: H-A-R-D-W-O- R- K 8+1+18+4+23+ 15+18+11 = 98%
And: K-N-O-W-L-E- D-G-E 11+14+15+23+ 12+5+4+7+ 5 = 96%
But: A-T-T-I-T-U- D-E 1+20+20+9+20+ 21+4+5 = 100%
THEN, look how far the love of God will take you:
L-O-V-E-O-F- G-O-D 12+15+22+5+15+ 6+7+15+4 = 101%
Therefore, one can conclude with mathematical certainty that:
While Hard Work and Knowledge will get you close, and Attitude will get you there, It's the Love of God that will put you over the top! It's up to you if you share this with your friends & loved ones just the way I did.
