  • energy spent in combat, can be better spent collaborating.we sometimes think/feel we have to doubly assert ourselves.
  • Everything is achievable as long as you are willing to pay the price. Keep that mind open.
  • Plan, put up your hand for help, draw on family resources a lot, and often too. Better your family first than strangers.
  • Find a career support person or mentor, work hard and pray hard.
  • No two birds have ever had an accident in the air- so there is room enough for you and me.
  • Lighting your candle doesn’t dim mine, it just means the whole place shines brighter.
  • It is God who blesses whether with ideas or any other thing; forget the big theories – it is he who causes time and chance to happen to you. surely there are people brighter than Bill gates and Steve Jobs.
