ABOUT THE ISSUE OF GIVING

26th June 2017

With Dr. Wilbert R. Mutoko

I am privileged to be a giver. I give money, advice, ideas, information, comfort, inspiration, motivation, joy, peace, listening ears and much more.

When you think of giving, what naturally comes to mind is giving money.

Most less privileged people think that all they require to become fortunate is money.

What most potential entrepreneurs think they need to start and grow their business is money.

Almost everybody believes that their life could get better when they get more money.

However, what I have realized is that it is not always about money.

Sometimes all you need is a listening person.

Sometimes you need a destiny helper to assist you or to link you up with helpful people.

In some cases, all you need is someone to give you their ears.

In other cases, all you need is someone giving you advice, mentorship or a book to read.

My conclusion, therefore is that you should avoid giving people money only because  those people may need more than money. If you just give them money, you may be disappointed to see them not appreciating the money. Thus, before you help people, make an assessment of what exactly they need.

Similarly, you should not always be on the lookout for money handouts. You may miss out great opportunities that come in as, time with a successful person or relevant advice.

FOCUS ON THE PRESENT AND LEARN FROM THE PAST

With Dr. Wilbert R. Mutoko (PhD)

14 June 2017

In every quarter, people are being encouraged with motivational words that cause them to focus on their dreams.

Focusing on the future is very good and I inspire many people to do the same.

However, I have realized that sometimes we emphasize too much on the future and forget about today and even yesterday.

If you ignore your yesterday and today, how do you make your tomorrow successful?

I know that some people propose that we must never think about yesterday for it is past. But, have you ever heard that history has a tendency to repeat itself? There is nothing new under the sun. You and I can still learn from our past successes and past mistakes alike so that our dreams can be more informed and better shaped.

What happens if you forget your today, and instead focus on your dreams? You neglect your present responsibilities in exchange for a future that you have not even grasp as yet.

In conclusion, let us all learn from our past, let us maximize our present opportunities and take daily steps that lead to successful fulfillment of our dreams. Otherwise, we may sit and wait for a better future which may never come.
