While a man was polishing his new car, his 6 yr old son picked up a stone and scratched lines on the side of the car.
In anger, the man took the child’s hand and hit it many times;
not realizing he was using a wrench.
At the hospital, the child lost all his fingers due to multiple fractures.
When the child saw his father…
with painful eyes he asked, ‘Dad when will my fingers grow back?’
The man was so hurt and speechless;
he went back to his car and kicked it a lot of times.
Devastated by his own actions…..
sitting in front of that car he looked at the scratches;
the child had written ‘LOVE YOU DAD’.
The next day that man committed suicide. . .
Anger and Love have no limits;
choose the latter to have a beautiful, lovely life…..
Things are to be used and people are to be loved.
But the problem in today’s world is that,
People are used and things are loved.
In this year, let’s be careful to keep this thought in mind:
Things are to be used, but People are to be loved.
Watch your thoughts; they become words.
Watch your words; they become actions.
Watch your actions; they become habits.
Watch your habits they become character;
Watch your character; it becomes your destiny.
Share this with as many people as you can.
If you are Government worker in Ghana check this out.
Divide your salary by 30, i.e. the number of days in a month and see how much you earn in a day.
E.g GH¢900÷30= GH¢30
1. This is Less than amount being gained by an average hawker in the city.
Which is GH¢1000÷30= GH¢33.33
2. It is also Less than the amount earned daily by an average driver in the city and some villages. I.e. 1500 ÷30= gh¢50
3. Less than the daily amount earn by a trotro, taxi, and a tipper car driver.
And when there is an issue in the family that requires financial assistance, the driver, hawkers and the rest are looking up to you.
If u are a national service personal you don’t need to be told GH¢350÷30 = GH¢12
I hope you know the pure water seller makes enough money than you each day? GH¢300÷30 =GH¢10
The errand boy at ‘Suame Magasine’ (fitting shop) is earning better than you.
We are mostly deceived by the apparent attractive name of the amount earn at the end of the month (SALARY) without breaking it down to daily earnings.

Lessons from Joseph ‘s career.
1. Open heart:
No bitterness against anybody. Even when his brothers tried to apologize, he told them they shouldn’t worry, they meant it for evil but God meant it for Good.
African Education system has surprising outcomes. The smartest students pass with 1st Class and get admissions to medical and engineering schools. The 2nd Class students get MBAs and LLB’s to manage the First Class students. The 3rd Class students enter politics, and rule both 1st and 2nd Class students. The Failures join the army and control politicians who, if they are not happy with, they kick or kill them. Best of all…..those who did not attend any school, become prophets, and everybody follows them.
‘Leave your ego at the door
”……is the statement that touched me when I was reading the Dojo etiquette in my karate licence and grading record.
Ego in psychoanalytic theory, is that portion of the human personality which is experienced as the “self” or “I” and is in contact with the external world through perception. The ego coexists with the id (said to be the agency of primitive drives) and superego (considered to be the ethical component of personality) as one of three agencies proposed by Sigmund Freud. Didn’t forget my PSYC 102 lectures.
During karate training, your ego won’t allow you to follow instructions. When that happens, you will defame the discipline.
Applying this is life, leaving your ego behind and remaining absolutely vulnerable allow you to receive every instruction or direction that comes to you. It gives you enough time and chance to grow and learn new things.
Moving ahead, check it so you don’t become egocentric or narcissistic. A person who is egocentric believes they are the center of attention, like a narcissist, but does not receive gratification by one’s own admiration. A narcissist is a person whose ego is greatly influenced by the approval of others.
Just learn to leave your ego behind and remain absolutely vulnerable. Receive fully and chanel the pressures of life into growth.
I’ve not been to Maasai Market before but with these lovely pictures, it feels like I’m there.
Nice post by Mavis……
So if you visit Nairobi and you don’t visit the Maasai Market in CBD area ( Central Business District) then you have not visited Nairobi. So keep that in mind.
A little bit about the Maasai community
The Maasai people of East Africa live in southern Kenya and northern Tanzania along the Great Rift Valley on semi-arid and arid lands. The Maasai occupy a total land area of 160,000 square kilometers with a population of approximately one half million people. However, many Maasai see the national census as government meddling and often miscount their numbers to census takers.
The Maasai society is comprised of sixteen sections (known in Maasai as Iloshon): Ildamat, Ilpurko, Ilkeekonyokie, Iloitai, Ilkaputiei, Ilkankere, Isiria, Ilmoitanik, Iloodokilani, Iloitokitoki, Ilarusa, Ilmatatapato, Ilwuasinkishu, Kore, Parakuyu, and Ilkisonko, also known as Isikirari (Tanzania’s Maasai). There was also once Iltorobo section but was assimilated by other sections. A majority of the…

With all the hype around the fight, I read this and felt the need to share…..
1. Choose your fights wisely. Manny has been asking for this fight for 5 years now but Floyd kept turning it down because he was studying his style. Manny has fought 57 matches in this category and lost or drew 5 of them. Floyd has fought 48 matches (the recent fight inclusive) in this category and won all. That’s… because he chooses his fights wisely. Life’s lesson: don’t be everywhere doing everything. Be tactful. Prepare well and give it a go when you are ready. Don’t hustle, strategize instead. Don’t beat the air, study to show yourself approved.
2. Do what matters. Floyd threw very few punches but they were clean punches that hit the right points. Manny was busy throwing plenty many punches. I watched that closely. Life’s lesson: Don’t just get busy, get busy doing what counts. Success in life is not about activities, it is about doing what is required.
3. Don’t be in a hurry to succeed. When you meet a tough challenge, be determined to overcome it and concentrate throughout. Manny is a tough hustler throwing plenty punches from first round. Floyd, from time is known to use his first 9 rounds to study his opponent and the last 3 to finish that opponent. This was exactly what played out again. Life’s lesson: to succeed, you need to take your time. There’s no prize for being the youngest achiever. Professor at 32 years of age and professor at 67 years of age are both professors.
4. God is not partial. He gives success to the best person whether you are arrogant or not, whether you profess Jesus or not. Floyd is arrogant but he’s an excellent boxer. Pac is humble, evangelizes from the ring and professes Jesus countless times but that wasn’t enough to win. It wasn’t a fight of Jesus against the devil, its just a sport competition between two humans. Dangote is the richest man in Africa, he’s not a Christian but he’s good at his business. Life’s lesson: being a Christian doesn’t mean God will circumvent and disregard natural laws of success for you to be the best. Being the best is a personal effort, God’s part is to crown your efforts and make it easier for you.
5. Don’t respond to critics, just do your thing! Don’t worry if people don’t like your style, just continue to succeed. That’s all that matters anyway. A lot of people didn’t support Mayweather because he’s arrogant but he didn’t let it bother him. Even when he raised his hands as winner, he didn’t get the desired accolades. Manny on the other hand is loved by all because he’s humble but that didn’t translate to winning the match. Life’s lesson: Do your thing, either you win or lose people will talk anyways, so why don’t you just win and let them talk? Critics don’t amount to anything in life, ignore them.
Eighteen (18) Ghanaian KNUST Professors were told to sit in an airplane. When they were all seated and the plane was about to take off, they were told the plane was made by their own students. They quickly run out of the plane leaving only one professor who was sitting confidently. When he was asked why he is still sitting, he said. “if the plane was made by our own students, trust me it won’t even start.” 😅😅😆😆😆:mrgreen::mrgreen::mrgreen:
A Baker was asked to print 1st John 4:18 on a wedding cake and he forgot the “1st” and printed John 4:18.
1st John 4:18 reads “There is no fear in love. But perfect love cast out fear, because fear has torment. He that fears is not made perfect in love.”
John 4:18 reads “For you have had five husbands; and he whom you now have is not your husband.”
Stay blessed and remember that small mistakes are not always that small.
