Unless you are able to respect house helps, until you are able to treat waiters with respect, until you truly respect your gardener, until you intentionally choose to honestly respect those whom you think are less intelligent than you, or less educated, or are less lucky than you… you will forever hover from peace to peace, looking for a perpetual peace that you will never find.#quotesbyme
A common man wants everything without doing anything;
He wants to live without touch with reality and be in touch with reality;
He tries to be free by using all his time making money;
He wishes for some miracle but never thought of being a miracle;
He sees something to complain about and nothing to be grateful for;
He uses his mouth only for himself, to eat;
He never stands up for anything or anyone;
He agrees with those he likes and disagrees with those he doesn’t like;
He accuses others of not helping him to be responsible;
He disapproves of what he approves to maintain a conversation;
Just because you can afford it, doesn’t qualify you to have it…#quotesbyme
Where the gun is pointing is more important than who is holding the gun;
If a child threatens you, don’t ignore the threat…as the saying goes, the most dangerous people are those with nothing to loose or everything to loose#quotesbyme
When dealing with someone feeling inferior, you can’t be confident;#quotesbyme
When dealing with someone insecure, you can’t be honest;
A poor man’s greetings is mistaken for begging;
When God wants to drill a man,
And thrill a man,
And skill a man
When God wants to mould a man
To play the noblest part;
When He yearns with all His heart
To create so great and bold a man
That all the world shall be amazed,
Watch His methods, watch His ways!
How He ruthlessly perfects
Whom He royally elects!
How He hammers him and hurts him,
And with mighty blows converts him
Into trial shapes of clay which
Only God understands;
While his tortured heart is crying
And he lifts beseeching hands!
How He bends but never breaks– Anonymous
When his good He undertakes;
How He uses whom He chooses,
And which every purpose fuses him;
By every act induces him
To try His splendour out –
God knows what He’s about.
When you are dealing with the masses, position yourself in front; the position of influence. When dealing with an individual, position yourself at the back; the position of power.#quotesbyme
A crooked employer may assume being powerful by taking advantage of your desperation, but you are actually in a position of power because you owe them nothing; not loyalty, no-obligation, not even respect. You can quit whenever you want.
Someone who is above the ladder has the least chances of surviving when they fall.
This, we call servant leadership. You lead from in front, but you consider yourself less important than your followers.
To be a leader with real power, you need to be an explorer and willing to take big risks. Your followers would then be willing follow your footsteps.
if it’s not that African Africans are immune to COVID-19, then it could be that all unhealthy Africans did not last long enough to be caught by COVID-19.#theory
Could it be that our health care is so poor that only really healthy people can survive?
Perhaps countries with better health care systems are receiving a higher mortality rate from COVID-19 due to their high life expectancy rate, meaning they have a lot of senior citizens.
