Lessons Of Life
Plan for future emergencies before they happen
The father of the prodigal son did not send people to the market before preparing a feast for him. Everything he needed to prepare a feast were his own and within his estate.
Givers can lack; it is producers that hardly lack
Rich nations and people try as much as possible to produce as much as they can, and buy only what they can’t produce. The poor, however, produce less than what they sell. If they sell their time, energy, and skills to government and employees for a salary, they spend most of it buying things they don’t own or even need.
That’s the problem with most African nations—we buy or import most things we consume; and we have a big appetite.

Your presence should always have a positive/driving effect on your business (Barr. M. O. Okeya).
You are not a director unless you regularly give positive directions to your business.

It is not compulsory that I do what I love, but it is mandatory to love what I do.
It is the way you eat bitter kola that will make someone to beg you for it.
Most transactions are emotionally done.
