Starting up and running a business requires special skills such as careful planning, research risk assessment, commitment and patience.
An Idea is not necessarily a Business Opportunity: There is one crucial difference between an idea and an opportunity. An opportunity is based on what consumers want. Many small businesses fail because an entrepreneur didn’t understand this.
How do you forget ?
The same qualifications you have, diploma, degree, masters, PhD that which gave you that job you have , are the same qualifications that your friends have too , but they don't have the job you have. How do you forget ?
The same pastor who officiated your marriage and blessed it, today you have even children is the same pastor who officiated and blessed even your friend's marriages but they don't have children and eventually divorced . How do you forget ?
The same prayer you offered to God and God answered you is the same prayer that your friends have been praying, but up to now they haven't recieved any answer and still praying , How do you forget ?
The same road you use to travel to places and safely you reach home, is the same road that many people have died on, How do you forget ?
The same church you go to worship God to and God has blessed you, is the same church that your friend goes to worship God too, but up to now his life is still miserable, How do you forget ?
The same bed you used in the hospital and you got healed is the same bed that your friends used too but they died in there ,* **How do you forget ?
The same voice you have and you can sing songs, you can preach, you can *talk* and so on, is the *same voice* that your friends also had but eventually *stopped singing , preaching* because they had cancer of throat, *How do you forget ?*
The *same rain* that made your *field to produce good crops* and you had bumper harvest is the *same rain* that *destroyed* your friend's fields, How do you forget ? At this end of the year Come back to your God and thank Him for his kindness.
Whatever you have , is not by your power, nor your intelligence, nor your qualifications but the Grace of God

Two guys were drinking in a bar.
As they were drinking, they started arguing, one guy pounce on his friend and started
After a long beating he realised that his friend was no longer breathing, he already died instantly.
Then the guy started running with his
shirt full of blood.Those who were
watching the fight started chasing him.
He ran to the house of a Christian man, knocked and said,
"Can u please hide me, i have killed a person and people are chasing me."
The Christian man replied ,
"Where am i going to hide you in my one room
The muderer said "There is no time to
waste here, just think of anywhere you
can hide me."
After a long thinking, the Christian man
said to the murderer,
"Give me your shirt and take my shirt but remember to keep my shirt clean"
They exchanged their shirts.Then as
soon as the Christian man opened the
door, people started beating him and
was badly injured that he was taken to
the police station.
From police station, the case was taken
to court and the man was found guilty of
murder and was sentenced to death.
The real murderer was safe at home but
was feeling so guilty that he ran to the
Court and said,
"Can you please release that innocent man, am the real murderer".
The judge replied "unfortunately it's too
late, the man is already hanged at last".
He ran to the police where the man was
hanged and for sure he
found him dead hanging.
He knelt down and cried his eyes out and said to himself, " You paid for my crime"
He remembered the Christian's last
"KEEP MY SHIRT CLEAN !!!"
That's how the murderer repented and
became a christian!
MORAL OF THE STORY ;
This is what Jesus did for us. He died for
the crime he did not commit on the cross of Calvary.
Now if you are thankful with what Jesus
did for you, Appreciate Him by just sharing
Ezra and Thomas joined a company together a few months after their graduation from university.
After a few years of work, their Manager promoted Ezra to a position of Senior Sales Manager, but Thomas remained in his entry level Junior Sales Officer position.
Thomas developed a sense of jealousy and disgruntlement, but continued working anyway.
One day Thomas felt that he could not work with Ezra anymore.
He wrote his resignation letter, but before he submitted it to the Manager, he complained that Management did not value hard working staff, but only promoted only the favoured!
The Manager knew that Ezra worked very hard for the years he had spent at the company; even harder than Thomas and therefore he deserved the promotion.
So in order to help Thomas to realize this, the Manager gave Thomas a task.
“Go and find out if anyone is selling water melons in town?”
Thomas returned and said, "yes there is someone!"
The Manager asked, "how much per kg?"
Thomas drove back to town to ask and then returned to inform the Manager; "they are 13.50 per kg!"
The Manager told Thomas,
"I will give Ezra the same task that I gave you. Please pay close attention to his response!"
So the Manager said to Ezra, in the presence of Thomas;
“Go and find out if anyone is selling water melons in town?”
Ezra went to find out and on his return he said:
"Manager, there is only one person selling water melons in the whole town.
The cost is 49.00 each water melon and 32.50 for a half melon.
He sells them at 13.50 per kg when sliced. He has in his stock 93 melons, each one weighing about 7kg.
He has a farm and can supply us with melons for the next 4 months at a rate of 102 melons per day at 27.00 per melon; this includes delivery.
The melons appear fresh and red with good quality, and they taste better than the ones we sold last year.
He has his own slicing machine and is willing to slice for us free of charge.
We need to strike a deal with him before 10am tomorrow and we will be sure of beating last year's profits in melons by 223 000.00.
This will contribute positively to our overall performance as it will add a minimum of 3.78% to our current overall sales target.
I have put this information down in writing and is available on spreadsheet.
Please let me know if you need it as I can send it to you in fifteen minutes."
Thomas was very impressed and realized the difference between himself and Ezra.
He decided not to resign but to learn from Ezra.

TODAY I PROPHECIES THAT YOU WILL NEVER
LOOSE ANYONE YOU LOVE ON EARTH
Breathe Deeply Though it is an old and repeated technique, nevertheless it really works well. Comfort yourself in a relaxing position and take a deep breath. Hold your breath and start releasing slowly. As your breath leaves you, assume as though you are breathing out fire. To feel the fire exiting from within you, place your hand underneath your nose. Exercise Exercising is, indeed, the best technique for calming down. Move out and indulge yourself into vigorous aerobic exercises for a longer duration than normal to release the pain and anger within you. Also, you can take up running as all it matters is finishing the run rather than worrying about the reasons for your stress. Push yourself against the barbell or the fitness equipment. This would help your mind to focus on nothing else, but finishing the exercise. Close Your Eyes Gently close your eyes and retreat from the present world going deeper and deeper. Let those drops moisten your eyelids helping you regain your equilibrium. You will gradually get back your balance and proper focus. Move Outdoors Whenever you are in an agitated mood, give yourself an hour to indulge into the beauty of the nature. Whether you are angry, opinionated, cynical or uptight, you will soon return home as a relaxed person. Engage yourself into some activities, say walking, biking, running or swimming, in order to clam yourself down. Find Your Way To Water All you guys, who had assumed water to be only a thirst quencher, think again! The various healing and mood effects of water can do wonders to calm you quickly. So, the next time whenever you are over aroused, drink a big glass of water every hour. Besides, you can take a walk along the water, take a look at it or listen to it. If possible, throw yourself into it by going for a bath or swim. Step Back Take a step back and observe the world that you are living in. Lift your head up and look at the stars in the sky. Realize the number of stars filled with many planets just like one of ours. Compare your problem with one of those twinkling stars? Probably, it is just a fight between two ants. In the event of so many serious problems, yours would not seem as a big deal. All it requires is some framing of things and events here and there. And voila! You'll have the solution to your problem in a few moments
A business plan is a blueprint of your business. It is a detailed plan from which all other plans should be developed.
Accept Your Personality Your life has not ended yet. You still have plenty of years to live. Hence, it's never too late to improve or develop yourself throughout your life. However, it is best if you accept yourself for whom you are. Be happy and celebrate your unique qualities and characteristics. After all, you are a unique individual created from God's own hands. Be Happy With Your Body Size Both men and women are often too conscious about their physical appearance, especially when they see a well-toned and figured person crossing their way. In case of women, some feel that their breasts are just too small, while there are others who feel they have heavy butt. Men, on the other hand, feel inferior to those who are well built or have a great muscular body. For all such gentlemen and ladies, remember that we are not produced from a single factory. Each one of us is different; hence, it is better if you accept, or rather love, your physical appearance. Built Confidence No person is born with natural confidence. It is the upbringing and your surroundings that help you develop poise and self-confidence. Children who are taught to become self independent from an early age have greater level of confidence than those who look up to their parents for every knick and knack. Start revealing a positive attitude and a feeling of self assurance and see how confidence comes natural to you in no time. Find Out Your Good Qualities And Achievements Looking out for some good qualities in yourself? Were you not able to find any? Does that make you hate yourself further? Why? Aren't you a homosapien? Just like every person has some negative attributes, so does he have positive characteristics as well. It is good to criticize your self but then do not be over critical. Accept your flaws and try to come over them. As for your positives, just keep on bettering them and who knows you might be able to love yourself all the more. Stop Regretting On Your Mistakes So, you have committed a mistake? So what? It's just a mistake. No one is going to beat or punish you to death. Making mistakes is natural to any human being. So stop beating or cursing yourself over and over again. Instead, sit down and analyze your mistakes. Take positive lessons from them and find out what different you can do next time to avoid these stupid and silly errors. Forget the past and plan the future. Don't Let Others Dominate You Sad but true, often people treat you like a doormat simply because you allow them to do so. It's your life and no one has the right to control or rule it, except you. So stop being too kind and generous when a friend constantly borrows money from you with no promises of repaying it back. Stand up and dump that guy who calls and looks up to you only for sex and nothing else. Remember, do not let anyone treat you badly because you deserve better than being only used or criticized.
