WElcoming New Year
2016 is almost over, and 2017 is coming.
Every time you go through a door, there is a change of environs.
From outside to inside or from one room to another.
You cannot be at two places at the same time.
But we have a tendency of bringing something with us to the next level as well as leaving behind something.
Look back and choose carefully what to carry along and what to leave behind.
Some burdens are weighty, and they sap our energy preventing us to be productive. That which is and was beyond your control. That which is and was frustrating you. That which is and was a constant reminder of your failures and shortcomings. Leave it all Behind!
Some aspects and memories are worthy to be cherished. They refresh and rejuvenates you giving you the energy to keep going. Such memoirs are a keeper.Hold on them to the next level. For they will come in handy when the going gets tough. Like David you can say, “I slew a bear, I have killed a lion with my bare hands who is this uncircumcised Philistines that defies the armies of the Lord.”
Happy New and Productive 2017!!

Jump out before it is too late.
My dear friend,
Put a frog in a vessel of water and start heating the water.
As the temperature of the water rises, the frog is able to adjust its body temperature accordingly.
The frog keeps on adjusting to the increase in temperature…
Just when the water is about to reach boiling point, the frog is not able to adjust anymore…
At that point, the frog decides to jump out… The frog tries to jump but is unable to do so, because it has lost all its strength in adjusting with the rising water temperature…
Very soon the frog dies.
What killed the frog?
Many of us would say the boiling water…
But the truth is what killed the frog was its own inability to decide when it had to jump out. We all need to adjust to people and situations, but we need to be sure when we need to adjust and when we need to confront/face.
There are times when we need to face the situation and take the appropriate action…
If we allow people to exploit us physically, mentally,
emotionally or financially, they will continue to do so…
We have to decide when to jump.
Let us jump while we still have the strength.
Think of It !!
God be with you as you make that decision.
