Dear Purple Reader, It’s good to have you here. On a day as this – a birthday, I’d be sharing with you something on self discovery. This piece I have titled A DIAMOND MIND INSIDE OF YOU.

Birthdays are the anniversary of the reason(s) why you were born and until you are able to define your purpose, I see no reason for the celebration.
Jeremiah 1:5 best spells this out, “Before I formed you in the womb I KNEW YOU, BEFORE YOU WERE BORN I SET YOU APART; I appointed you as a prophet to the nations.”
We see men who have accumulated great fortunes, but we often recognize only their triumph, overlooking the temporary defeats which they had to surmount before “arriving”. Prominent names like #FolorunshoAlakija, #AlikoDangote, #FelaDurotoye #OprahWinfrey, #EAAdeboye #BillGate etc will always be considered great even if they lose all the wealth they have amassed. You know why? Because, they are assets in themselves contributing to life in a definite way, they have DISCOVERED how they CAN NOT be ignored in life. Christ discovered this too.
If there is one weakness in people for which there is no remedy, it is the universal weakness of LACK OF AMBITION! and until you DISCOVER yourself, you will continue to operate from the lower echelons of life, so I’ve learnt this and decide to share with you.
Most of us go through life as failures, because we sit to analyze things we CAN NOT do, meanwhile those that take time to see things they CAN actually do fail because they wait for the “time to be right” to start doing something worthwhile. May I inform you that the time will never be “just right.” You have to start where you stand, and work with whatever tools you may have at your command, and better tools will be found as you go along. The world won’t care about your self-esteem. The world will expect you to accomplish something before you feel good about yourself.
Let’s take a mock scenario from the jigsaw puzzle. A jigsaw puzzle is a puzzle made of many small pieces that are cut into various shapes and can be fit together to form a picture. But if a piece gets missing, of what relevance is the puzzle? Zero relevance, right? Exactly! You are that piece waiting to be discovered.
Dear Purple Reader, on a day as this, it’s best you PRAY, READ & MEDITATE until something happens! PRAY, READ AND MEDITATE and soon the entire picture will unfold. You just can not afford to live the world without your own quota. Nay, I do not wish that.
A man with no clear glimpse of his true calling is just a nonentity waiting to be discovered.
Success comes to those who become SUCCESS CONSCIOUS and failure comes to those who indifferently allow themselves to become FAILURE CONSCIOUS. A man who thinks of how much he can give for a dollar and not how little he can give for a dollar is bound to succeed. You got to seek the one who knew thee, who had set you apart, lest you waste away.
Dear Purple Reader, there are two types of people in the world. One type is known as LEADERS, and the other as FOLLOWERS. Decide which you intend to belong. The world is waiting for you!
