According to Robb Thompson, ‘You are either a prisoner of your past or a pioneer of your future.’
Welcome back from the long weekend. Sure we all had a great time with our family. Mine was a fulfilling weekend. I had s great time with the gems of S.T&T Regency International Schools, GRA, Ikeja Lagos. You call them pupils, I call them gems. Today, I proceed to the gems of Yabatech Secondary School to inspire them and speak and bring to the queens and kings inside them. Pray for my team and I that the Lord will grant us wisdom and grace to establish his perfect will in the lives of these rare gems.
You will recall that before I rested this discussion of decoding your identity on Friday, February 03, 2012, I promised to show you 6 principles, which will help you put the passwords to decoding you identity to effective work. Join me as I begin to do that today.
As I posted yesterday from the Holy Writ, this is the truth, everything in life produces after its kind. Human beings and institutions alike cannot give what they do not have. Hear again: “No good tree bears bad fruit, nor does a bad tree bear good fruit. Each tree is recognized by its own fruit. People do not pick figs from thornbushes, or grapes from briers. A good man brings good things out of the good stored up in his heart, and an evil man brings evil things out of the evil stored up in his heart. For the mouth speaks what the heart is full of.’
You see, for you to use the passwords of decoding your identity shared with you effectively, you must understand the foregoing principle perfectly.
According to Robb Thompson, ‘You are either a prisoner of your past or a pioneer of your future.’ The summation of this saying is that there are two kinds of people in life. The first: those who are prisoners of their past. These ones are held bound by their past and therefore cannot progress in life. The second are the pioneers of their future. They are people who have been able to put their past behind them and author a new future. This is a privilege God Almighty has given every man and woman.
How do you take hold of this awesome privilege to become the author of new generation, a pioneer of your future? Or put differently, how do you begin to take advantage of the passwords I shared with you before now to author a new life, which makes you a ceaseless flow of inspiration to the children under your care. I think the beginning of the journey is to embark on a journey of self-evaluation.
Join me tomorrow, as I begin to share with you the 6 bus-stops in this journey of self-discovery.
POINT 2 PONDER:
There are two kinds of people in life. The first: those who are prisoners of their past. These ones are held bound by their past and therefore cannot progress in life. The second are the pioneers of their future.
Have an INSPIRED Day.
