I won’t let the day pass without acknowledging MLK, Jr and his major contributions to the Civil Rights struggle. Hopefully I’ll get a chance today to post more but at least this is my initial offering.



Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was a leader who, like Mahatma Gandhi before him, and Nelson Mandela after him, showed us the way from weakness and division to strength in unity.

He challenged and inspired us to reach deeper within ourselves, despite ourselves, for our best, which sometimes is, simply, better than yesterday. His power endures because it’s rooted in the courage to hold hope and faith in each others potential: “knowing” we can do it… we can be better every day, each in our own way.

On this, the U.S. holiday celebrating his life and legacy, I present you with ten of his extraordinary thoughts on leadership:
•”A genuine leader is not a searcher for consensus but a molder of consensus.”

•”I am not interested in power for power’s sake, but I’m interested in power that is moral, that is right and that is good.”

•”All men are caught…

Be an inspiration to others

I couldn’t let this nugget slip by without sharing it. I hope you read this and get the message!!!


This is arguably the most beautiful story I have received on whatsapp! READ…

A lady worked at a meat distribution factory. One day, when she finished with her work schedule, she went into the meat cold room (Freezer) to inspect something, but in a moment of misfortune, the door closed and she was locked inside with no help in sight. Although she screamed and knocked with all her might, her cries went unheard as no one could hear her. Most of the workers had already gone, and outside the cold room it’s impossible to hear what was going on inside. Five hours later, whilst she was at the verge of death, the security guard of the factory eventually opened the door. She was miraculously saved from dying that day. When she later asked the security guard how he had come to open the door, which wasn’t his usual work routine…

Word of the Week: Character

I just had to reblog this……

Faith1st Ministries

Character is defined as moralorethicalquality.

In a world where character is not as essential as it once was, it is needed more than ever. Regardless of whatever area of life we may look…we need people of character. We need people we can depend upon to do the right thing…simply because it is right.

We must be of the mind and will to exemplify the personal moral or ethical quality necessary to function in whatever role we may be…family, social, business, etc. As a father and husband, I need to strive to be a man of character everyday. My wife and children must be able to trust that I will do the right thing, to the best of my ability, whether they agree or not.

  • Character is making the adjustment in thinking and behavior needed to be a better person.
  • Character is standing for what’s right…

She’s the only one to care,
She’s the only one to challenge every dare.
She’s the one totally different from others,
Just keep her happy,brothers.

Never make her sad ,
To have her just be glad.
No one can understand her,
Today her image is totally blur.

When asked for one chapatti gave two.

She’s none another,
Totally the caring one ,
Like her there is absolutely none.

She is happy when I am,
She’s the only one to motivate me for life’s exam,

Mom only a hearty thank I can give to you,
For inspiring me in the life to me which was new..

Other People Do Not Define You

This is a great read and a very good thought-process. Perhaps you have already read this. Please re-read it again anyway!!!

We Hold These Truths To Be Self-Evident

People are often unreasonable, illogical and self-centered.


If you are kind, people may accuse you of selfish motives.


If you are successful, you will win some false friends and some true enemies.


If you are honest and sincere, people may deceive you.

A Bottled Idea (2-min Read)

This is definitely worth reading and re-reading!!!
I receive this message wholeheartedly!


                                              bottled idea picture

A bottled idea is an idea that occurs to you which you decided not to put to work. It fades out and dies off like a candle light that has been put on for a long time in the daylight. When you ruminate on a matter for a long time without putting all the ideas that occur to you to work, you have bottled all the ideas. For instance, if an insect is put in a bottlethat is covered up for a long time, what happens to the insect, it would die, right? The same thing happens to any idea not put to use, it will soon be forgotten.

A writer says idea rules the world. That idea you have may be the one that would…
