Strive for the good, cast off evil

2015-10-08 06:00

Life is full of contrasts, whether good or bad. And these happen for a reason.

However, many among us tend to concentrate on the negative aspects of life and fail to appreciate the positive sopin-offs of life.

When the going gets tough, these should be seen as opportunities to encourage us to do better.

We do not fail because the challenges in front of us are insurmountable, we fail because of low self-esteem and negative attitude. We fail before we even try.

We end up being our own worst enemies than plotters of our own destiny.

Some of us become so demoralised that they don’t even apply for jobs and look for business opportunities. They have concluded that the good things in life are reserved for others. Once you undermines your worth and capabilities, it becomes difficult to achieve goals. Good things come to those who strive and work towards them
