What Is In A Mother's Heart?

This image above speaks volumes as it shows us motherhood at its peak. This mama deer gave herself up to save her fawns. This is what a mother's heart looks like. 

So what is in a mother's heart? It is true that as a mother, you die daily in serving, in giving, in nurturing, in shaping and in impacting your children. This heart also has the power to influence generations to come. #amothersheart

A mother's heart gives herself daily serving her little ones.
A mother's heart loves not just in words but in her actions.
A mother's heart seeks to nurture great men and women.
A mother's heart fights for the destinies of her children.
A mother's heart inspires her children to dream big.
A mother's heart keeps giving and giving.
A mother's heart beats to see her little ones succeed.
A mother's heart never ever gives up on her children.

He made you a mother to nurture and mould hearts.
He made you a mother to shape the next generation.

Why You Must Choose Happiness?

Today is International Day of Happiness and the action for Happiness pledge is ‘I will try to create more happiness in the world around me.’

Happiness is simply defined as the state of being happy. It can also mean pleasure, joy, satisfaction, bliss, contentment etc. Being happy is something you can choose to do. #choosehappiness.

Here are 3 reasons why you must choose happiness.

1) Happiness is contagious. 
Let the happiness bug flow from you to others. Let others find a ray of hope by simply hanging around you. Happy people can force a smile to show up on your face. Happiness can quickly lift a broken spirit. It is not just about being happy, it is about how that happiness radiates life to others.

2) Happiness is thankfulness.
Being happy opens up your heart to show gratitude. When you are happy in the midst of a storm or challenge, you are only being thankful for what you have and where you are. Happiness turns your focus on gratitude and you become most thankful for this present moment, for the little things and for life itself.

3) Happiness is in you.
Everyone can be happy. It is your choice and my choice. Never let negativity dictate your responses. Never let people's opinions become your reality. Never let life's storms defeat your faith. Never let difficulty take away your happiness because happiness is definitely in you. #choose happiness

Inspiring Words From Strive Masiyiwa

Zimbabwean businessman and entrepreneur, Strive Masiyiwa shared some inspiring thoughts on his page recently and I just had to share. Go here for the full post. Read excerpts below:

There is a story told in the legend of modern business about a young man who liked reading books. He would order books by mail order, but being a very avid reader he found that it took too long for the books to arrive. So what did he do? He sat down and designed a new way to get books delivered in the shortest time possible.

His process for ordering and delivering books has turned him into one of the richest people in the world. That young man is Jeff Bezos of Amazon, and he's now worth over $50bn.

Sometimes the "game changer" comes from the way you deliver your service to the customer!

As an entrepreneur, one of the keys to your success is your continuous search for something that sets you apart, even if you're in the same business as others. Some of the things that you do don't have to be technological or highly sophisticated - just different!
