It’s often saying in life that where we are today is the total sum of all the choices we have made in the past, why theis statement sounds to be truth but no totally truth why? , because of the color of my skin, the family, the country and the continent I found myself, I didn’t make that choice neither did you. But the fact still remains the fact that where we will be in life will always be as a result of our choices.
Now, to initialize the declared variable, don’t let me be too techier, simply put to answer the question on the ground, what are the things that are responsible for our choices in life, without even Google searching, have come to realize that part, I mean part of the things that are responsible for our choice in life are what we see and hear in our environment.
Truly, I say to you friend, that we wouldn’t have told our Aunties when we were in Nursery school that we wanted to become a Doctor, if we didn’t hear them saying the good thing about Doctor, and so I say that never blame a 14 years old boy who said he wants to be $ashe (Scamming), is as a result of his environment and most especially what he heard.
There is one African Proverb that says “When there is no enemy within, the enemy outside can do you no harm”, there is a need for us to understand that what people say about us can never define us. If I have the opportunity of going back to my young (Teen) me, I would tell him that “Hey Boy, you don’t care about what they say about you, because they don’t know you and they can never know you”.
And Jesus asked Peter whom do men say that I the Son of man am? , and Peter replying saying some say that you are John the Baptist, some say you are Elijah, while others say Jeremiah or one of the prophets, and Jesus asked him again saying but whom you say that I am? , Peter replied saying you are the Christ, the Son of the living God and Jesus replied, “Blessed are you, Simon son of Jonah, for this was not revealed to you by flesh and blood, but by my Father in heaven. (Matthew 16: 13-17).
And that’s exactly the way it is my Brother, that’s exactly the way it is my Sister, truly I say or else God reveals to someone whom you are, no one will ever I mean ever know you, even if you want to really know whom you are, then there’s need for you to make your Creator as your mirror (Hebrews 12:2).
It was like a War scene, this particular man was about to be eliminated, truncated and defeated by his opponents, if not for the arrival of a Warrior who later saved him from his enemies. After, the Warrior said to this Man, “You need to know how to stand and defend for yourself”, “I always wanted to” replied the Man but why asked the Warrior, “because am a coward” he replied, “who told you that” the Warrior asked again, “that is what my father and people do call me” he said. Hmm, my own questions for you is “in whom words do you believe?”
Mohammed Ali always said that “I’M THE GREATEST”, if we don’t witness but we all heard that he finally became the greatest, and that’s exactly the way it is my friend that anything you believe and say after “I’M” that will surely define you, control your decision and shape your life, so I don’t know about you but I know about myself and so I say to myself that I’M POWERFUL, I’M GLORIOUS, I’M BLESSED, I’M UNIQUE, I’M CREATIVE, I’M MARVELOUS, I’M STRONG, I’M ABUNDANT, I’M CONFIDENT, I’M MIRACLE……
So I say to you my friend that anything you say about yourself is exactly the thing you will ruminate in your mind and execute in your World and that’s how the World sees you. I’m Rajah and I’m the King, WHO ARE YOU?
