Myles Munroe quotes

Image
Wow,am shocked that this great mam of God is no more with us but i still believe his words will,these are some of his quotes i loved,hope its beneficial  to you.                                                                            "The greatest tragedy in life is not death, but a life without a purpose."-Solid character will reflect itself in consistent behavior, while poor character will seek to hide behind deceptive words and actions.-People generally fall into one of three groups: the few who make things happen, the many who watch things happen, and the overwhelming majority who have no notion of what happens. Every person is either a creator of fact or a creature of circumstance. He either puts color into his environment, or, like a chameleon, takes color from his environment.

Why Being Uncertain About Your Future Is The Way To Claim Happiness

Image
By Moose A
From a young age, we are aware we need to have long-term plans in order to succeed. Growing up, the most common question overbearing relatives asked me was, “What do you want to be when you grow up?” It was as if knowing the answer was a pressing concern for a 10-year-old to have.Consequently, as I grew older, I grew increasingly nervous about the fact that I didn’t feel interested enough in anything to dedicate my future life to it.Every time I reached what I considered to be a critical juncture in my life, from which courses to take in high school to which colleges I should apply, there was always a lingering sense of anxiety. I didn’t know what it was all leading to.Ultimately, I decided that being a doctor was a career worth pursuing. After all, I was certainly smart enough, and my family and friends often commented that it was a very respectable and stable life for one to pursue.It was only by a cruel twist of fate that the prestigious health science program I had my he…

Spend The Weekend Staying Inside A Full-Size Working Airplane (Photos)

Image
ites anymore?Maybe you just need to book a room perched on top of a mountain somewhere… Or maybe a beachfront property?But, either of those wouldn’t be nearly as cool as a bunking inside a real, fully-functioning commercial jet!If you’ve ever booked somewhere to stay using Airbnb, you know your options are everything but limited.The fact that you can actually stay in an airplane proves just that. The travel site is offering a two to four person stay on a KLM airplane.In case you were wondering, yes, a master bedroom is included. As a matter of fact, everything you’d find in a home can be found on this plane.As for the plane’s location, you’d have to be OK with traveling to Amsterdam; the plane will sit on one of Amsterdam Airport Schiphol’s runways.What are you waiting for? Book your stay for a night between November 28-30.Instead of booking a stay at a luxury hotel, get creative. Why not book a KLM commercial jet for you and up to three other people?

TRIBUTE:madam Elizabeth ekpo

Four  years now since you passed on,9 Things I Learned In The Year After My Mother Passed                                                              Scars: They are a testament to injury, proof of survival and, at times, as indiscernible as a line etched delicately along the crevice of an eye. Although not all mar the physical appearance, they are all there, emotionally and mentally etched upon the skin like a latticework of fragmented memories and barely-remembered moments.As badges of both honor and dishonor, scars are forever, branded on the heart, and as time continues, we soldier on, somehow stronger.It was a Sunday. November 3, 2013 inflicted a wound like none other, reaching inside of me and tearing out what was left of my beating heart. It was the day I shattered to a million pieces without a hope in the world to piece it back together.It was the day I lost my mother.I’m not sure how one describes the jumble of emotions, the racket of wailings or the enduring isolation that …

After College Comes Life: Why Your 4 Years At School Won’t Be The Best

Image
Last week was one of those weeks: tests upon tests, a bad experience with a boy and the seemingly-endless sickness that all college students know far too well. On the verge of a meltdown, I called my best friend. As I recounted my stress and unhappiness, she tried her hardest to cheer me up.After loads of good advice, she ended with a cliché I’ve been hearing far too often: “Don’t stress too much; college is supposed to be the best four years of your life.” And, just as things seemed to be turning around, cue the meltdown.As she always does, my friend ended up calming me down and my life returned to its normal, happy, unexciting state. But, something about those words led to thinking and the thinking led to a brief sadness. As much as I suppressed it, the thought kept creeping back in: “So, these are supposed to be the best years of my life?” Well, sh*t.It’s not that my college years haven’t proven to be a ridiculous mess of amazing experiences because believe me, they have. It’s just…

There Are Only 5 Differences Between You And Someone Who Is Successful

Image
A lot of people in this world manage to pull off becoming successful. However, it should come as no surprise that a whopping majority of individuals do absolutely nothing with their lives.When considering “success,” you have to be careful of how you define the term. Success means different things for different people, but as a general definition, success is measured from where a person starts to where a person is currently standing.Expectations aside, how far you’ve progressed in your life and under which circumstances you’ve managed to create positive change are what decide whether or not you were successful in your endeavors.You may have failed to reach the goals that you aimed for, but if you made significant progress, it can’t be said that you failed. Sure, you “failed” to hit your mark, but you can’t say you failed overall.Nevertheless, a relatively minuscule amount of people in the world can be labeled successful. Were all humans born with some innate gift that guarantees their …

11 Reasons Why Men Who Read Make Better Boyfriends

If you go home with someone and they don’t have books, don’t f*ck them.” John WatersHow do you judge a man? How do you determine his worth and his strength of character? How do you decide he’s someone deserving of your heart?By his height? His shoes? His voice?Like a woman, there’s no one quality to judge him on, and many times the qualities we think we should look for end up deceiving us. A man may seem one way then prove to be another, taking with him all the signs we thought were so telling.We look for clues and traits to tell us what kind of man he is. We spread opinions and theories like old adages and family recipes. “If he doesn’t have a sister, he won’t know what it means to respect a woman.” Or, “If he’s in finance, he won’t know how to commit.”We pick up on small details and tiny habits, anything and everything to make us feel like he is the right — or wrong — person to let into our fragile worlds.Does he have siblings? What about a car? What’s his job like? Does he dress we…

Cry If You Want To: Why Emotional Guys Are Healthier And Happier

Image
Growing up, I always heard people shun the act of crying. “Nobody likes a cry baby,” they would tell me – and I believed them. I thought about sitting on an international flight in front of a sobbing infant, and saw the logic in their rationale.In high school, after a bad loss, my football coach would blow his whistle and scream, “HEY, THERE’S NO CRYING IN FOOTBALL.” I believed him too. Terrell Owens, on the other hand, clearly missed the memo.Over time, though, I started questioning the masses. I started pushing the boundaries of “social acceptance.” I threw caution to the wind.I started crying.Well, not literally, but I decided I would if I felt like it. F*ck it, right? We all deserve a good cry, from time to time, and I’ll be a monkey’s uncle if anybody is going to deny me that privilege. Even you, society.As it happens, crying is actually healthy as sh*t. Next time you’re driving home, alone, on a cloudy autumn night, and “Take Care” comes on – don’t hold back. Don’t grab the on-t…

The 9 To 5 Myth: Your Success Is Measured By What You Do Off The Clock

Image
I was listening to Beyoncé on my walk home from school one evening. (My music tastes are becoming way too predictable…) It was late enough where I had missed the post-work rush.Late enough where I was game over about going to the gym, and late enough where I was too tired to pretend to even contemplate it.The beat of Yoncé’s sultry track “Haunted” track propelled me home. “Working 9 to 5 just to stay alive. Working 9 to 5 just to stay alive,” she crooned.Well, f*ck that. I couldn’t help but laugh at the ridiculous lyric: ‘9 to 5 just to stay alive?’ Yeah, if you’re lucky. Beyoncé of all people should know that you have to work more than mere eight-hour days to get by. (And, if we’re being picky here, shouldn’t it really be 9-6?)I glanced at my watch… 7:42 pm and I still had more writing to do when I came home. In the new work age — and especially in Nigeria — your job doesn’t stop just because you left the office. There is always more work that can be done, and if you’re not doing it,…
