“What holds most people back isn’t the quality of their ideas, but their lack of faith in themselves. You have to live your life as if you are already where you want to be.” – Russell Simmons

I thought you might find this story interesting!! Somethings are best told in a story form

A man had only one daughter.
When the daughter was ready for
marriage, the father sent news
around town that all the eligible
young men should come to
compete in a test
which would determine who was
fit to marry his daughter.

On that day, all was set, all the
able-bodied young men came out.

Some came with papers and pen
and others with cutlasses and
swords.

The rich man took them to his
swimming pool and addressed the
men: “Any of you who can swim
from one end of this swimming
pool to the other would marry my
daughter.

In addition, I‘ll give him 15 million
dollars, a car and a house so they
can start life well. I shall be
waiting to meet my son-in-law at
the other end. Good luck!”

As the young men, all very excited
at the prospect of winning,
started taking off their shirts, a
helicopter came over the pool and
dropped
alligators and crocodiles into the
pool.

Immediately, all the men
turned back and started wearing
their shirts again. Disappointed,
some of them said, ”That’s
crazy,. Let’s see who would marry
that girl ,no one will’.

All of a sudden, they heard a
splash in the pool. Everybody
watched in amazement as one
gentleman struggled his way
across, avoiding the snakes and
crocodiles.

Finally, he made it to the other
side. The rich man could not
believe it. He asked the young
man to name anything he wanted
but the man was still panting
uncontrollably.

Finally, he got back to his senses
and made a request saying,

”SHOW ME THE PERSON WHO
PUSHED ME INSIDE THIS POOL!”

Moral: You don’t know what you
are capable of doing, until you are
PUSHED!!.

You can still make the most out of
the rest of the YEAR.

Sometimes it
takes going through the bad
moments to bring out the BEST in
us.

Trials are raw materials for
Triumphant Testimonies… The
push might take different
dimensions: some people needed
to be sacked before realizing their
potentials and reaching their goals
in life.

I PRAY GOD WILL PUSH YOU
INTO A GREATER HEIGHT BEFORE
THIS YEAR RUNS
OUT…..Amen
