WHY PERSONAL RETREAT 2?


WHY PERSONAL RETREAT?



CULTURE OF READING

CULTURE OF READING


I opened a teaching on the 'culture of reading' with this phrase. Seven years after, two young men at different occasion approached me and said, 'sir, this phrase altered my life, while sitting in that auditorium.'

HALF LIFE






HALF LIFE

If you ever noticed you have been struggling with your current status.

For instance, what should naturally appear comfortable is awakening a level of 'dis-ease' and you are gasping for more. 

Then this quote may provide some ease to liberate the trapped 'angel' within you.

SELF-LEADERSHIP

The most demanding skill in the world - Self Leadership.


INFLUENCING OTHERS


INFLUENCING OTHERS
It was a lifesaver, the day I discovered you can't change anybody.
A mentor once said, "I almost died trying to change people. But I found out much later, that people's 'light bulbs' - epiphany, comes on at different intervals. Some the first day they heard, another a week after, others several months later, while certain folks maybe decades before the moment of self-realization done on them."
I guess that is why Jesus never argued with the Pharisees. For knowledge will always govern ignorance.
So learn to leave it at what was advised and move on to more productive ventures; because if you weren't needed in Capernaum, there maybe great need for you in Samaria!

SOBRIETY IN AUTHORITY















SOBRIETY IN AUTHORITY


Lately, the word of the ancient script, "...he who rules his spirit is better than he who takes a city," as suddenly made more meaning to me than ever.
Saddled with position of authority, either in a voluntary or involuntary system, sometimes we are quick to exert the might we are privilege to have.
But it must never elude us, that all privileges come along with the tag of enormous responsibility. One of such, is the ability to always delay showcasing the sceptre of authority at the slightest provocation.
Imagine a father going around his house to remind his children that he is their father because he's offended or a husband yelling at his wife at every argument they have, that he is the head of the home. In both cases he has lost it!
Self-control should be a constant guide. Evaluate the possible outcome of every decision you are about to take.
Don't let your emotions speak for you. Learn to guide and lead your emotions.
Don't be the kind of leader that seeks to show dominance, but the kind that is eager to serve even at the expense of perceive self-dignity.
