Cast The Past, first fast.

A bad past

should not dictate your future.

Cast the past first in a pit, fast,

Before you think of good future.

Let go, that with rust

That which you cannot nurture.

A good future needs determined mind,

A mind that can leave behind,

All the woes and hold on to what it will find,

Relevant, pleasant and sound.

Such a mind,

Is a treasure one can’t easily find.

Battles are Fought, Not Thought.

#Battle#strategy#winning.

It’s very unwise to imagine that you can win a battle by sitting back and not taking any action. A good soldier rises to go and fight. Please mark that.

You fight. You put on your armour and face the opponent. This is not and is never an imaginary affair. 

But before that, you need to train first. You may only do little in the battle field if you trained insufficiently or didn’t train at all. The enemy may sound stronger for you because of such reasons. Remember the following:

  • You may have all the weapons, all the armies but may end up being defeated. Why? Because you may be having a poor strategy, or no skill because of poor or no training. Everything being available doesn’t guarantee success. The enemy may still overtake you.
  • Every battle requires resilience. Fight up to the end. Resolve to fight until you die. Either you win or die. Two things only. Nothing in between.
  • Battles are not fought by cowards. When you run away, the enemy gets a chance to shoot your bare back. You may have a breast plate in place, and a shield but your back may not be equally protected. So you endanger your back when you run away. Face the enemy.

Battles come in different forms in our lives. Diseases, alcoholism, marital problems, poverty, court cases are just some of them. Remember also that battles may be psychological, for example a mind set that one will never make it in life however much they try.

When you are faced with a battle, remember that your faith is being tested. To grow stronger, you need to be exposed to a test or an examination. As you pass one test, you face another one….and eventually you graduate.

A winner is never characterized by how many battles they fought but how they kept on rising, a battle after another.

The best way to wage war against the enemy is to plan and attack using tact and never to retreat even if the enemy looks fierce or stronger than you.

When you know you are a coward, you may decide to shout and threaten the enemy…in your cowardice state. The enemy may interpret the shout as a danger that wants to send them to the grave. When you know that you don’t have courage, just pretend that you have it. 

It’s very wrong to think that battles are won overnight. It’s never an easy ride. Always prepare adequately. 

That’s the truth. Thank you.

Dogma…bad trap.

#Don’t be trapped by dogma.

1

Live life to its best,

Don’t be trapped by dogma,

Don’t let your life spill into waste,

Whichever way, people will murmur.

 

Be courageous to lose the sight of the shore,

Or to wander in the wilderness,

Until you can’t turn back anymore,

Success comes with decisiveness.

 

Don’t be afraid to pursue your dream, to honestly criticise a fact, or to air your opinion. Don’t decide on what to do based on what people think about you. If you let go that which is yours, you may never find it. Don’t waste time living somebody else’s life. Don’t live a lie. Be yourself. Take courage.

Cheers.
