FAVORITE QUOTES ON SELF-DISCIPLINE

Image result for discipline
The individual who wants to reach the top in business must appreciate the might and force of habit.He must be quick to break those habits that can break him-hasten to adopt those practices that help him achieve the success he desires.
J.  PAUL GETTY

Self-discipline requires delayed gratification,the ability to put off satisfaction in the short term in order to enjoy greater rewards in the long term.
Brian Tracy

Everything you want in life has a price connected to it.There is a price to pay if you want to make things better,a price to pay for leaving things as they are,a price for everything.
Harry Browne

It makes no difference how deeply seated may be the trouble,how helpless the outlook,how muddled the tangle,how great the mistake;a sufficient realization of love will dissolve it all.
Emmet Fox

Education is cultivating your strength,learning self-discipline,listening and desiring to learn.
Azuka Chukwuanu

Any person is educated who knows where to get knowledge when needed,and how to organize that knowledge into definite plans of action.
Napoleon Hill

No horse gets anywhere until he is harnessed.No stream or gas drives anything until it is confined.No Niagara is ever turned into light and power until it is tunneled.No life ever grows great until it is focused,dedicated and disciplined.
Harry Emerson Fosdick

Self-discipline is the ability to make yourself do what you should do,when you should do it,whether you feel like it or not.
Elbert Hubbard

Leadership-the quiet kind which God wants you to exert in your family-is not a matter of being a bully,a dictator or a boss.It is simply taking control and doing the right thing.
Harold J. Sala

The best time to love is now! Use your gift to serve God and serve humanity.
Rick Warren

OPEN THE WINDOW

And receive Heaven’s gift of love

Oh, enjoy this blissful flow

Coming gently from above.

And let in Heaven’s sunshine

His light will make you glow

The light of Christ divine.

At His love as it overflows

His glory let everyone see.

Oh, let songs of praises flow

Give glory to Jesus’ name.

The Window of your heart

Oh,the grace and glory He bestows

When we surrender every part.
  
Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and eat with him, and he with me.Revelation 3 vs 20(ESV)

GOODNESS AND MERCY

Image result for goodness and mercy
Surely goodness and mercy
Shall follow me all my days;
I shall dwell in the house
Of the LORD God always.

Glory to You, O God,
For Your goodness and grace;
How sweet it is
Your love to embrace.

I come on bended knee,
I bow before Your throne;
Take all I have, all I am,
Lord, my life You own.

Tell me what You desire,
Lord, this I shall do;
My will, my longing,
Is to always please You.

I am but a vessel,
You are my eternal King;
I hold nothing back, Lord,
I give You everything.

With Your Holy Spirit
My heart, Lord, do fill;
I empty myself for You
That I may do Your will.

Wherever You lead,
It matters not to me;
All that matters
Is that Your face I see.

And surely goodness and mercy
Shall follow me all my days;
I shall dwell in Your house,
Lord, for I am Yours always.

OUR NATION,OUR PRIDE



Image result for nigeria

A land of unlimited opportunities
Blessed with rare skills and talents
A people industrious and diligent
.......Our nation,Our pride.

A land of unbelievable riches
Garnishing the earth with surplus food
Blessed by God so graciously good
With trees and tusks,fruits and fishes.

A land of untrammeled tribes
Varied in culture,each rich in their heritage
United by one anthem and pledge
May peace,faith, and love be imbibed.

A land of unity and freedom
Undaunted by the uprisings of saboteurs
Still like the eagle she swiftly soars

Still, she shines like a beacon.

A land of unequivocal patriots
Comprising of unflagging warriors and heroes
To these great ones my tribute goes
East,west,north and south.


A land of unprecedented human resources
Rich in crude oil,salts, and flowing fountains
Embellished by rocks,rivers, and mountains
The abundance of energy and mineral resources.

A land of ubiquitous greenness
Freshness,fruitfulness, and fertility
Nigeria-our beloved country
Our nation,Our pride.

SING A NEW SONG TO THE LORD

 Image result for sing a new song unto the lord
Let bees and birds sing
Love songs to gladly bring
To God our Father and King
Sing, sing His praises

Sun, moon and stars of sky
Our gracious King glorify
Creator the Lord Most High
His wonders amaze

Blessing our land with showers
Blooming our meadows and bowers
Blossoming with fair flowers
As His power blazes

Swing, swirl flowers of field
Sweet fragrance and fruits yield
To His praise our Sun, and Shield
Glorify the God of grace

Trees and mountains humbly bow
Freely worship in reverence and awe
Allegiance to Him kneels and vow
Beholding His fiery face

Honor Him people everywhere
He gives food and clothes to wear
Sheltering, comforting us in His care
Praise Him people of all race

Let all of the creation sing
Join in the chorus O celestial beings
He rides on angels' wings
Sing, sing His praises!

BE THE BEST YOU CAN BE


Image result for be the best you can be


Be the best you can be
With faith as your key
Believe and you'll receive

Be generous and also give.


Believe in your God-given dreams
You can attain though hard it seems
You are one and only
So live a life noble and holy.

Be beautiful from the inside out
As God's praise you sing and shout
Let all your faculties exclaim
Always bringing glory to His name.

Be the best you can be
With discipline and diligence
Reach for the best;be the best
Live life to the fullest!

Not slothful in business; fervent in spirit; serving the Lord.Romans 12:11(KJV)
