Happy new year.

Its new year and am totally grateful to God almighty who kept us this far, so many died in the last year but here we are jumping and screaming. God's grace was made manifest, nevertheless this Grace should not be abused. I thought and thought then came to the conclusion that the only way we won't abuse Grace is by being Thankful and the way to be thankful is to be productive.
It is new year, we should change our perspective and our thoughts there should be something unique we want to do, that would yield result, something that makes you stand out, something no one else can do. Now is the time to do that thing. Now is the time to work relentlessly and yield results. Tell your maker directly and indirectly that you are an asset . Let him be confident of the talent he has given you, let him be sure you are responsible and accountable for all you have. To be productive you don't need money you need vision, energy, passion, idea, talent and above all Grace. You have to be relentless about your passion. You don't attract support by begging. You have to be the kind of person that attracts help. You can only attract help by being passionate.
Say no to begging this new year and yes to vision, yes to passion, yes to dreams, yes to reality.

Never let what you can't do stop you from what you can do.
Its new year start doing something even if it is small, because " success is the sum of small efforts, repeated day in and day out" Robert Collier.

Yes everyone is changing, everyone is grabbing something new and different, we losing our cultural values and morals. We now enjoy the western world and so many of us can't speak our native language. 'I can't either'. Sometime last week I saw this write up on facebook where it was written modern day slavery and it had a detail of how we now pay for our own slavery and it had this picture of nude black girls working in a white restaurant it was deep. You should see it. I had to take deep breath, it is true we all know this things. It is amazing how we pay so much to get so little. It all goes down to out economic, political instability. I am so sure if my country invests 25 percent of it's natural resources efficiently and effectively we won't be having this great urge to travel to another country and even if we do, it would be for a short term purpose not a forever parole.

I happen to work with my school's international center and I have to routinely go pick students from the airport, long story short, I got talking to this 16 year old freshman and I asked out of curiosity "When would you go back home?" and he answered "Never" after he gave me this 'are you serious look?'  I was stunned and I had to control my emotions if a young child of that age has the mentality of never going back home what more of the older youths. It is amazing how we all run from our Father Land because things are not going the way it should or the way we think they should. Fleeing is not the solution. We have the power to change, we are youths, we are young, we are vibrant, we are smart and intelligent, we are Godly, we have what they didn't have at our age. We have technology, we have a choice. Most of them didn't have a choice they were forced to power not knowing fully well the do's and don'ts, the pros and cons, the what, how and when of power but in contrary we do know better. We have improved communication through out modern gadgets,apps and all. Information is now easily accessible anytime and anywhere.

I can type all day and all night but of what use is my typing, speaking. your reading and listening if we don't act. Actions speak louder than words. Do not just act based on what you know but act based on what you know best. 

In a nutshell our world doesn't need a Jack of all trades and master of none. We need a master of one. Do whatever you do well with all dedication and determination and sooner or later your uniqueness would bring you to stardom. No two heads are the same and there is a unique trait in you that no one as. Find it, Grow it. Cultivate it and soon it would yield Profit. I call it the FGCP Theorem.
