Thought of the day! #Aug30


Hello world, welcome to the midweek. It is a gift of God for lets come alive and make a wonderful day.

Here is my thought for today your content within determine your success not your colour or tribe or gender. I have seen and meet so many people that discriminate base on colour,tribe and gender which now make people to have inferiority complex about themselves. We now have a world where everyone is trying to change their colour even to the point some are doing transgender. Don’t you know the maker that created you have given you best of best. You have to come to this reality whether you are white, black, green, yellow etc in color nor your tribe or race or gender that garantee your success it is the content within you. So stop be inferiority complex about your colour or tribe or gender be proud of it ( i am proud to be blackman and a Nigerian) all you need is to thrive to develop your content then your success is sure. This story will help you to understand more…
There was a man who made his living selling balloons at a fair. He had ballons of many different colors, including red, yellow, blue and green. Whenever business was slow, he would release a helium-filled balloon into the air. When the childreb saw the balloon go up, they all wanted one. They would come up to him buy a balloon and his sales would jack up. All day, he continued to release a balloon whenever the sales slowed down. After, the balloon man felt someone tugging at his jacket. He turned around and a little boy asked, ” if you release a black balloon, would that also fly?” Moved by the boy’s concern with a smile the man replied gently, “Son it is not the color of the balloon, it is what’s inside that makes it go up.”
The same principle applies to our lives. It is not the color of your skin, neither your tribe or your race.. it is what’s inside of you that makes you to succeed in life. Once again, be committed to develop the content of your inside very well.

Don’t let the world change you to what you are not.

God bless you, do have a fulfill day.

I remain your humble friend,

  1. Well said. Thanks for dropping by my Nature Blog and following. I hope you enjoy my photos, but more importantly I hope you enjoy my walks in Nature.

    Last Monday, I took a taxi into the centre of Melbourne (city) and got chatting to my driver. I asked where he was from and he said Pakistan. We then began to exchange details on how our lives had turned out and what sort of upbringing we’d had in our respective countries. He a Pakastani and then, refugee to Australia. Me, a typical Australian who’d travelled overseas a lot in my youth. I then asked what religion he was and he hesitated and in a small voice said Islam. He was almost scared to tell me. He was scared I might denounce his religion (in the face of terrorism and extremist ISIS who bend their religious beliefs in their cause for domination and hate).

    I then went on to talk about religion and spirituality. I said I never cared for formal religion (being brought up as a Christian and my Mother forcing me to go to church and Sunday School which I hated as a child). I leaned more towards Buddhism, especially Tibetan – a country I had always wanted to visit and now, in my 60s and with chronic ill health, never would.

    I said to this taxi driver “I don’t care what religion people are, or their skin colour, or their country of birth. Most people the world over just want to be happy. They want a good education and to get a job to provide for their families. They want a warm home and good health for their friends, family and work colleagues. People want to practise their religion with freedom and really……..what’s the difference between Christianity, Buddhism, Islam, Hinduism or the many other religions. Deep down, in principle, they are the same. Most religions believe in non-violence and its only the extremists who twist their religions to suit their greed, anger and non-tolerance to others.”

    We arrived at my destination and I thanked him for carrying my heavy bags. I gave him a warm smile and wished him a pleasant day.

    Life can be difficult. We have highs and lows in our lives. Life is far too short to waste on hate or discrimination. Life is about sharing and community. Life is about caring for Nature and the Environment. I’d like to think when I die, I will have made a positive impact on the world and people around me.
