It lies within………..!!!!


Now if you know what you’re worth, then go out and get what you’re worth. But you gotta be willing to take the hits, and not pointing fingers saying you ain’t where you wanan be because of him, or her, or anybody. Cowards do that and that ain’t you. You’re better than that…”

– Rocky in the 5th sequel of the Rocky Franchise (ROCKY BALBOA)


She said,

I wish I was finer and slimmer

I would have been married by now.

But she never told me she had aborted for 5 different guys before she was 21 years old.


He said,

if I had studied a course like Architecture or medicine

I would have been able to start my own business and not been stuck with this job.

But he never seems to know what he wants and always want what the others had.


We say,

if we had more money

or more time,

Or wealthy parents,

Or more respectful, faithful and sexier wives,

Or loving, caring and high flying husbands,

Or obedient and cheerful children,

Or a thoughtful and well paying employer,

Or better leaders of the country,

Or a more peaceful Nation.

We would be better off than where we are today.

But we never point the finger at ourselves,

Everyone is guilty, except “we-selve.”


Who knows you better than you?

Who can help you better than you?

Who can work to change your situation better than you?

Who can utilize the talents, gifts and time you have better than you?

Who can take care of your spouse the way you want to be cared for, better than you?

Who can train your children the way you want them to be, better than you?


The reality of life is that, the truth we seek, lies within.



Olulu (the King not from Zulu).
