LIFE MANAGEMENT

Be SILENT when in Anger

Be HONEST when in Trouble,

Be SIMPLE when in Wealth, and

Be POLITE when in Authority

That’s simply called “Life Management”!

LESSONS FOR SUCCESS

You’ll never learn if you don’t make mistakes,

You’ll never be brave if you don’t get hurt,

You’ll never be successful if you don’t fail.

Lest I forget,

successful people keep moving.

Though they stumble and fall, they never quit.

Successful people build each other up.

They motivate, inspire, and push each other.

Unsuccessful people just hate, blame, and complain.

The choice is solely yours!

______________________________

SELF-RECONSTRUCTION

You can rise up from anything.

You can completely reconstruct yourself.

Remember no condition is permanent.

You're not stuck; you have choices.

You can think new thoughts.

You can learn something new and do things differently.

Also, you can form new habits as you go.

All that matters is that you decide today and never look back,

for everything is in your mind!

______________________________

HAPPINESS!

To be happy in life, keep your heart free from HATE and your mind free from WORRY. Give MUCH and expect LITTLE from other people. Live simply and fill your life with LOVE. Treat others the way you expect to be treated. Treasure your family and friends. Finally, trust in the LORD with all your HEART and lean not on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge GOD ALMIGHTY and HE shall direct your paths (Proverbs 3:5-6).

THE 10 PRINCIPLES OF INSPIRATIONAL LIVING

Compiled from multiple sources by Kwaku Saforadu Amankwaa-Pam (Akunafoɔ Kunu)


PREAMBLE

You are the beloved child of the Lord God Almighty, created in His full image and put here on earth to obey and glorify your Maker in all that you do. Obedience is the key to the Lord’s blessings, miracles, and all forms of breakthrough in your life.


*Principle #1: Prayer & Trust in the Lord

Pray always (see 1 Thessalonians 5:17), and trust in the Lord with all your heart (see Proverbs 3:5-6).


*Principle #2: Respect

Treat all persons with respect, and never allow your challenges to negatively affect the relationships you build. Love all persons, but your trust must be in the Lord only.


*Principle #3: Overdependence

Do not depend too much on anyone under the sun, for even your own shadow leaves you when you are in the dark.


*Principle #4: Friendship

No matter how high you rise in life, never forget that you need someone, at least, to freely relate to and confide in. Be nice to people on your way up, because you will surely meet them on your way down. However, never search your happiness in someone else. You alone are responsible for your own happiness.


*Principle #5: Family

Consider your family—both nuclear and extended—as the best gift you have, and it must be nurtured and preserved in unity.


*Principle #6: Work Ethic

Cultivate an extremely healthy work ethic, working wonderfully hard, avoiding excuses, and not disappointing those who depend on you.


*Principle #7: Blessing

Always be a blessing to the needy in society (especially, orphans and widows), remembering that the Lord God Almighty blesses you, so you can be a blessing to others. Your greatest test is when you are able to bless someone else, while you are going through your own storm.


*Principle #8: Truth & Honesty

Never lie to any person. Always be truthful and honest, no matter the consequences. Remember that your steps are ordered by the Lord, and there is a purpose for everything that happens to you.


*Principle #9: Responsibility & Comparison

Learn to take responsibility for your actions and say, “I’m sorry,” if you must. Never compare your life to someone else’s life, for everyone is fearfully and wonderfully made (see Psalm 139:14), unique, and has been put on their own journey.


*Principle #10: Patience & Waiting

Every situation or condition is temporary, so wait patiently for things to happen, and do not rush anything in your life. Remember what seem to you as bitter trials are often blessings in disguise, for the Lord has made everything beautiful in its time (see Ecclesiastes 3:11).

Move on with all your strength, and may the Lord bless you!
