9jaflave FFT - Courage VS Fear

Here is my food for thought for today. Courage VS Fear. Which would you rather choose? Choosing courage, following your heart and stepping out in faith or choosing fear and staying trapped in a life of mediocrity.

Courage conquers and fear limits. Courage paves the way while fear sees limitations all around. Courage reveals who you can become while fear shows you who you are not. Which would you rather choose?

'Take A Chance And Jump' - Inspiring Words From Steve Harvey (Video)

This short inspiring video will definitely inspire you!!!!!
American comedian Steve Harvey spoke from his heart without even knowing the cameras were rolling.  He said 'Take a chance and jump". Identify your gifts and use them, try something new, step out in faith and bring your dreams to life. JUST JUMP!!!!!! Below are some inspiring words he spoke:

'Identify your gifts and live out those gifts. It is your gift that will make room for you in the world. You've got to take that gift and jump over that cliff.'

'When you first jump, the parachute will not open right away but it will eventually open. But you have got to jump.'

'You can play safe and stand at the edge of the cliff for life and that parachute will never open. Take a chance and never know but not until you jump.'

Before you leave this life, before you live this world. JUMP!!!!!!

President Buhari's Reward To 1985 Golden Eaglets - Fulfilling Promises And Showing Appreciation

After 30 long years, the 1985 Golden Eaglets who won the U-17 FIFA World Cup in China, have finally been rewarded. President Buhari, who was then military Head of State, had promised to reward the team after winning the championship but could not keep his promise as he was overthrown in a coup.

Fast forward to 2016, our President got to fulfil his promise and appreciate the victorious 1985 Golden Eaglets. He announced N2 million for each of the players while the coaches got N1.5 million each. He said the rewards were not payments or compensations for winning laurels for the country, but a token of appreciation for the sports ambassadors’ efforts and patriotism.

In his words: “I wish to remark that today’s event is very special to me because, Almighty Allah has, in His infinite mercies and love, kept me alive to this day and granted me the privilege of being able to fulfil my promise in 1985, to reward the winners of the maiden edition of the FIFA Under-17 World Championship. The reason for the 30 years delay is well known. It is, however, sad to note that a member of the 1985 Golden Eaglets is not here with us today.”

It is actually a rare privilege and a blessing to be able to fulfil a promise made several years ago. After 30 long years, President Buhari chose to honour his words and fulfil his promise. I am very certain that it was a special moment for the President and members of that team that day. The feeling of  being appreciated usually cannot be quantified in words.

How about fulfilling some of those promises you made sometime ago? How about showing appreciation to someone who truly deserves it? Many have walked through our lives, some good, some bad, while some have made an impression so deep they must not be forgotten. Others have served and worked hard to make life fulfilling for you, remember them and show some appreciation.

9jaflave Soliloquy - The Value Of A Moment

What is the value of just one priceless moment? A moment to think, a moment to love, a moment to care, a moment to give and a moment to share. Everyday brings with it the opportunity to make each moment count and create memories for a lifetime.

What is the value of just one moment holding the hands of a woman in labour? What is the value of that moment when you hold your new born baby in your arms? What is the value of that moment when you look around your home and see your children running around absorbed in their own world? What is the value of just one priceless moment?

What is the value of one moment looking into the eyes of your spouse and being thankful for the journey so far? What is the value of those moments you give your all and sacrifice just create a family that can inspire others? What is the value of that moment when you care, when you give selflessly and when you love unconditionally?

What is the value of a moment holding a sick child in your arms, saying it will be ok? What is the value of a moment caring and holding the hands of a dying loved one? What is the value of that moment when you say your final goodbye to a person in transition? What is the value of that moment when life suddenly takes on a new meaning?

Just after the passing of her husband, world renowned fashion model/entrepreneur, Iman Abdulmajid tweeted, ' You never know the value of a moment until it becomes a memory.' 
Let us choose to make the moments in our lives count, good or bad, let us learn, let us believe, let us grow, let us laugh, let us be courageous, let us never loose hope, let us choose to extract life lessons from each moment, because you may never truly know the value of that particular moment, if you did, then everyday will be a day to make beautiful and unforgettable memories.

Make each moment count. Make each moment beautiful. Make each moment priceless,,
Cheers and Stay inspired @ 9jaflave
