“No man has a chance to enjoy permanent success until he begins to look in a mirror for the real cause of all his mistakes. – Napoleon Hill (Law of Success Page. -13- )

Life is easy, why? There are adequate pillars contributing to your life in different ways: religion & relationship, education, cultural, money, health, government and emotional response. Life from the very beginning of creation to current generation probes a lot of questions. But before we proceed to the wits in this article, first you need to picture yourself in a real life mirror. Look to yourself and say “I am who I am now, because of what I am thinking and can change to anything by changing my thoughts today”. No matter what prison you find yourself, your imagination cannot be imprisoned. The life you see in the mirror is the image of your destiny. You can like or dislike it base on how well life treats you. Every battle won in life has a master mind behind and is in two phase; first spiritual realm before physical. And that give us the two phase of life. There is packed wisdom for you in this. You must do the things you think you cannot do. And remember, there is no harm in trying. Human progress is neither automatic nor inevitable… Every step toward the goal of justice requires sacrifice, suffering, and struggle; the tireless exertions and passionate concern of dedicated individuals.-Martin Luther King Jr-

To succeed in life is to grow in wisdom as you look the mirror of your life. Remember the best place to mature in life is to grow towards the progressive evolution of life and the effort which counts in your life is the one leading you to self-understanding. If you are in your 20’s; you think age fifty is far-off but it isn’t. You will be fifty before knowing it. I want to challenges you to stay focus in life as you journey towards the progressive evolution of your new day. Never bow to the pressure and the state of your family. Don’t ever blame your parents or ancestors, but think about what you can do now with the little resources available to you. Many are called but few are chosen and I think you are the only one left to make the change you wish to see in life. We only look into the past to learn from it in order not to repeat our mistakes. We live in the present on its availabilities and tomorrow for the future we hope for. That’s it the only glory in it.

You may not know your enemies. The same people chanting God bless you, the same chant to crucify you when succeeding. The most important and basic things in your life are done by you not politicians. You can shout all you can. The Government will not chew the food in your mouth for you. Inspire yourself and murder your enemies with success in all areas of your life. Make every day count and life is more than food and the body more than clothes. Make good use of your time as you journey forth to conquer your fears. Your life is bigger than football arguments which later profit you with hunger and thirst. If you don’t have time for your destiny today, the current and future days will not have time for you. In every remarkable life money plays a role but if you continue to believe money answers everything in life you will spend the rest of yours chasing it. Life is not all about money; it’s about God, your purpose, passion and creativity.

You have heard of a message today that will work on your five senses to understand the importance of time management in life. Make good use of your time while it last. The meaning of whom, where and how you are in life is important: this will support your day to day administering of your time use. The article has been written to speed your understanding to issues in life as well as how to discover your true identify in life. The messages and ideas shared here are meant to help you be an agent of change in your life. You know yourself better than anyone else. And the time to act is now or never. It is my hope that this message will walk you through life with due diligence as you develop strategies to your challenges in life by getting life time solutions. What is your purpose? What change do you want to make in your life today, tomorrow, this week, this month or next quarter or year? Where have you ever imagined travelling to? What necessary steps have you put in place to bring your imagination into reality? Your answer to them will help you a lot as you begin to reach greater height in life. It is my hope to make most of our youth in Ghana and beyond endeavor to overcome the regret snare in their 50’s. The differences between the fifty year old security man who opens the gate of the fifty year CEO all happens in the mirror of their youth.

I want to use this message to segregate you from immature thinking to matured thinking. What are some of the immature thoughts; if my parents were rich! If I had it! I deserve it! I am entitled! Pay my bills for me! Take care of me! Do not offend me! Such thoughts undermine your confidence in life and cripple you to nothing but a dead lion to your family, community and the world at large. But as you begin to focus more on mature thinking such as,’ I must make it. I will do it. I am ready to take the task. It’s about what I can do to support others. I will challenge my views to succeed. I will buy my own stuff. Nobody owes me anything. I accept my mistakes. I am responsible for my success and failures. You will be able to see the beauty of your life in the clear mirror of it and understand the easiness of living your destiny.


I am of the fate that; if young people of today have the guidance, passion and ideas to assess themselves by evaluating their life within. They will be successful in major areas of their lives and more importantly become responsible parents with much courage to pursue excellence. And that’s my ultimate goal as the founder of my organization. Shalom.
