Real talk #5

Challenges can be frustrating, discouraging and annoying yet it is a road path through our reward. Every great reward will come with a great price to pay. Most often we would rather not pay the price and jump to getting the reward. In a fight for a heavy weight title, one has to face his great challenge which is his opponent. You can’t get that title until you pass through that fight and overcome your challenge/obstacle. Why can’t we see life as such? Why do we always crave for easy paths and quick ways, short cuts just to avert obstacles? It only depends how you see life, but obstacles or challenges have two sides of it. The first 1646321250-face-challenges-picture-quoteside is what we easily see, that is the side that shows itself flamboyantly with contents such as discouragement, fear, problem, complexity, obstacles, and frustrations. All these are what we see easily but that tells what kind of person you are. An optimist or pessimist. Behind every challenge, in fact the reason for every challenge is the reward you receive when you overcome. You become stronger and fit to face greater challenges. If you desperately want that reward then be ready to face that challenge. Welcome the challenge and let it remind you that your reward is close at hand. In a bible in the Old Testament, King Saul ran away from his challenge; that challenge was facing the giant Goliath. All the Israelite went to hiding but it didn’t take Continue reading

Real talk #4

Today on real talk I  want to share a story that has taught about  faith, hope , persistence and patience. I often times call my self a giant bamboo tree. I came across the characteristics of this tree on line and i want to share it in my own story line.

Once upon a time there lived an old man with his grand child in a far away land. This man had an intention to plant a particular specie of a bamboo tree. This old farmer has a grand child living with him. Known to the old farmer is the peculiar characteristics of this unique seed he is about to plant. Every day the old farmer goes out to water the ground where he had planted the seeds some weeks ago. His grand child was very observant and to his greatest surprise he noticed his grand father watering that same soil for the past 8 months with out any sprout of life. He asked himself, why does grand pa keep watering 33957a19e10edb2aa8d5ca6b5f141b8cthe earth. It is past one year and the watering ritual continue and still there was no sprout from the ground. This activity was becoming a concern for the little lard. The little boy got discourage because he didn’t seem to understand what his grand pa is doing any longer. But the old man continue to water the soil, fertilize it. Third year pass there was no visible activity and no growth above the soil, so did the forth year pass too yet he kept on investing his time and resources on that portion he planted the seed some years ago. Something happened on the fifth year year, a miracle, visible sprouts of leaves began to appear above the ground and in six weeks the tree grew as tall as 80 feet long. Incredible! the young lard now grown up was astounded. He now understood why his father had been patient and consistent in watering and caring for the soil. images

When you analyse the story carefully you will realize that it seems as though there was nothing happening physically or outwardly above the soil but a huge investment was being made and a long process of building up stamina below the earth was been made to be able to support the height and fast growth of the tree out ward. It had a mixture of patience and consistency in investing in the right thing just to see a desired future. For the bamboo tree it took 6 years to show forth the great future.

The farmer, always investing time and resources in the present just because he had a picture of the the tree he wants to grow.

What have you invested in your life today that will amount to greatness in future?

It is paramount we seek to find this answer. If you have invested nothing then know that you have sowed a seed already into the future and sorry to say this, you will have a disappointing future. If you fold your hands today and watch people sow in tears and you do nothing, in the physical it seems like no harm done but in the spiritual you have sowed a seed of poverty which you will eventually reap. We hold our destiny and your decision leads you to the path.

I leave you with questions to answer for your self and remember that your future is the sum total of all the decisions made today. God bless you. with love Timothy Shunnom Friday



Real talk #3

Today on real talk I want to share a bit of my recent findings.

I was so fascinated learning to know more about the body. Some of us move our legs from point A to B and care less in knowing the mechanism that powers the ability for the legs to move. So also we live in a body we care less about its health. We remember to take care of it only when we break down. Earlier I was doing some research about the brain. You won believe what I found out.

Do you know that the brain is the most vital organ of the human body and our most valuable asset? Yes it is because it is the center of intelligence, coordination, speech, creativity. It is an interface between the spiritual and physical realm (The mind).

Do you know that no man on earth has used up to 10% of their brain capacity? Shocking to know that the highest percentage used is about 2%

Do you know that the human brain has the left hand hemisphere and right hand hemisphere? The Left hand hemisphere is analytical and functions in a sequential and logical fashion and is the side which controls language, academic studies and rationality. The Right hand side is the creative and intuitive hemisphere. Continue reading
