Let your voice be heard and make the world a better place
Time has come when we do not just develop things but develop people. Time has come when we do not just fill our minds with doing things right techniques but doing the right things with right principles. Time has come when we do not just move with speed but move in the right direction. Time has come when we do not control anyone anymore but empower everyone.
Time has come when we do not practice the methods for efficiency but make the principle that leads us to our purpose and personal greatness part of our lives. Time has come when we do not get occupied in the systems to be at the bottom line and get busier with transactions but take ourselves to a top line and be on the system that drives the progress of humanity with transformation. What you transform in this day and age will in time to come be a definition of success to this generation and generation next.
Ralph Waldo Emerson writes… what is success? To laugh often and much; to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of Children; to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends; to appreciate beauty; To find the best in others; to leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch or a redeemed social condition; to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived; this is to have succeeded.
Hitting the mark and making your mark in this life is something you will hold in high esteem through all or an indefinite time. In my physical intelligence, I think much of my innate ability. In my mental intelligence, I rate my matchless maturity highly. In my emotional intelligence, I take delight in my effective empathy. In my spiritual intelligence, I have a high opinion of my irrefutable integrity. In the universal intelligence, I hold you in high esteem; that is why I have given you this gift because I believe in your unique calling and gift.
Arthur Ashe writes…from what we get we can make a living, what we give, however, makes a life.A Great Man writes…one hundred years from now, it will not matter what kind of car I drove, what kind of house I lived in, how much money I had in my bank account or what my clothes looked like. But the world may be a little better because I was important in the life of a child.
In this day and age, the very rich such as Bill Gates, Warren Buffet, Sam Walton, Richard Branson, Roy Kroc, Henry Ford, John Johnson, Jerry Yang, Sergey Bein, Carlos Slim Helù, Lakshmi Mittal, Roman Abramovich, Amancio Ortega, karl Albrecht, Larry Page, Oleg Deripaska, Rinat Akhmetov, Micheal Dell, Oprah Winfery, Sam Chekwas and even the man I respect so much – President Barrack Obama through their own words had given all and sundry what it takes to live a life that makes a difference. Time is like a coded system in a flowing river, you can decode it by coming by its drift and hang; men who know and apprehend the time rules this time of information, telecommunication and globalization.
You can lead revolution and transformation of this generation that is for documentation of recognition, you can write an epoch-making epistolary that will epitomize our age and ages to come, you can direct and produce award-winning movies, sing soul-lifting songs or lead movements that will ameliorate lives, end malice, malign and melee, resolve conflicts and create memorable memorandum that will give people cause to meet with directly mesmeric and meritable merriment and have peace of mind, you can implement successful business plans and packages that is taking the money world to the Next Dimension, you can come with head-turning and ineffable innovations that will transmute and modify the status of the scientific, technological or arts world in less than a second…it only take you believing in yourself.
Believe you can fly so high as the eagle and elucidate the soupcon of susurration, buzz, fizzle, whiz and silver-lining façade of the cloud even if the earth is in a blaze, the world in a maze, the sphere in a raze and the inhabitants laze away.
In my own words, I have inspired you to aspire, to align your work with your unique calling and gifts for Heaven and the future’s sakes in view of the fact that we are the pride of the primrose, the top cream of crème de la crème who must cream their dreams and beautify our world. Do not just read the words of wisdom; put the wealth of wisdom to work. Anyaele Sam Chiyson is an International Best-Selling Author, Inspirational/Financial Speaker, Business/Marriage Consultant.
