People may try to shame you, mock you, criticise you……. But don’t let their actions turn you into another play-actor, pretending to be something you’re not. (more…)
You’re not here to be an onlooker — you’re here to be useful; to play your unique role in making the world a better place to live in and inspiring others to do the same. You’re important. You’re crucial to the survival of planet earth. The world needs you and your unique contribution. (more…)
Motives means a lot to God; He greatly cares about why we do the things we do, for him and humanity — whether they’re done in love or out of selfish ambition. Doing the right thing out of envy and rivalry is foolishness and futile, a waste of precious time and energy. An ambition that […]
It’s difficult to be unique, to choose not to do what everyone else is doing. It’s difficult to take a principled stand in the face of adversity. It’s difficult to be vulnerable and trusting. It’s difficult to stay calm in a crisis, when things aren’t going the way you want it. It’s difficult to do […]
Where are the matured sons and daughters of The Living God, those who are fully equipped to realise God’s purposes on earth? These are men and women who’ll administer God’s plan on earth, his heaven-on-earth agenda. They’ll champion the cause for change, teach people to (more…)
Don’t live a fearful life. Fear is crippling. It’ll make you an invisible nonentity if you allow it to rule your life. Fear will stop you from living your best life; from dominating your world and making a ding in the universe. (more…)
Panic is nothing but a waste of energy. That’s why I tell people not to panic; not to allow that “sudden overpowering fear” take over their lives, when they face difficult or challenging circumstances in any area of their lives. (more…)
I believe in using business to positively impact the lives of others. That’s why I love Google, Toms, Ashoka, Kiva and many more. They’re profitable and socially relevant businesses. They’re purpose-driven businesses making our world a better place. (more…)
1. Be selective. (more…)
There’ll always be people who complain around you. But you must refuse to join their tribe if you really want to be a change-maker. Complainers don’t change the world. (more…)
The Creator’s plan for you is to go out there, into the world, and initiate change. You’re created to change the world, to make meaningful impact on society. (more…)
Stop the envy. You’re not on the same mission. Refuse to let envy make you take up the assignment you’re not wired for. It’ll only ruin your life and make you more miserable, in the long run. (more…)
Be kind to the poor and needy around you. Choose to be the answer to their prayers. (more…)
You’re somebody special. God needs you. He wants to you to do something new in this generation. He wants to use you to do great and mighty things and bring glory to His name. He wants to use you to fulfill His eternal plan for mankind and reconcile those who are lost back to Himself. […]
Be humble. Humility is an antidote to destruction. Writing off people or looking down on people who are down on their luck will only bring you a step closer to destruction. If you want to experience lasting success and an unending flow of God’s grace in your life, you must learn (more…)
If you’re attempting something new, something that has never been done before, you’ll encounter resistance and misunderstanding. But don’t ever let them stop you from fulfilling destiny. Choose to change your generation. Choose to make a mark on history. You’re born to initiate positive change, the kind of change that improves humanity, not the kind […]
Too many parents are seeking to relive their lives through their children. This has to stop. Parents, I believe, can help their children make a difference in life by helping/encouraging them to embrace their weirdness and then get out of the way. Parents have a divine assignment of pointing their children in the […]
