MOTIVATIONAL READING

CAPACITY

True greatness lies in exploring the very limits of human ability; and then pushing them even further – Albert & Comfort Ocran.
A delegation of Ghanaian handicraft exporters went on a trade mission to the United States in the early nineties to prospect for potential buyers. The cane products in particular caught the attention of a giant retail firm that initiated a discussion about a potential order in batches of 40,000 pieces for all their 20,000 shops. The exporters suddenly started fidgeting and stuttering at the most basic questions. Apparently, none of them had handled an order exceeding a few hundred pieces.
The importer was both concerned and surprised; so he begun to find out if there was any reason why they could not deliver the order. He asked about the availability of financing, labour, management and technology. All these areas had minor issues but the biggest surprise was in the area of raw materials. 
When asked about how many hectares of the raw material, rattan, were annually cultivated in Ghana, the amused exporters’ honest response was that the product only grew in the wild in the Western region of Ghana.  That was the end of the discussion because the size of order they were discussing required a dependable and uninterrupted source of deliberately cultivated raw materials.
How many times have we gotten big opportunities in life but lacked the capacity to fully take advantage of them? Capacity refers to the maximum ability to produce, perform or contain. The issue of capacity is at the very heart of how prepared we are to seize our opportunities. It is not enough for a business person to praying for bigger orders and constantly prospecting for new clients. Equally important is the level of readiness to handle opportunities when they come. 
What size of opportunity are you prepared for today? 

What would you do if someone brought the equivalent of year’s work to you to deliver in a month? Would you complain or take advantage?

Are there supporting arrangements or back-ups you could fall on?

Answering these and other related questions could help in your preparation as you expand your capacity to take advantage of your opportunities. 
Capacity at any time could be financial, material, social or even mental. In today’s knowledge-driven economy, your mental capacity is one of the most important factors you must develop for career success.

Your first steps towards expanding your mental capacity could be committing to a planned programme of reading and self-improvement. 
A manufacturer can expand capacity by modernising production units, deploying shifts, improving technology or increasing efficiency through process re-engineering. For a supervisor seeking a managerial promotion, building capacity could mean taking a management course or learning from a mentor. Whatever you do, look for ways to improve and expand your capacity in readiness for new opportunities. 
Key Thought: I shall expand my mental capacity by daily learning and reading.

Message of the day

The Bible reassure us that if we cry unto God he hears us. It doesn’t matter what we are going through, it may seem that there is no hope or end to our suffering but he hears us. He equipped us with intelligence and strength. Whatever you are going through there is a way. Be still and know that you serve a Covenant Keeping God. 

Obviously you need to put your trust in Him and step in faith. The saying God help those who help themselves is true. Sometimes we need to stop whining,  set a goal for ourselves and work hard towards our goal. It may not be easy or it may not go according to our plan but if we keep in mind that God is a miracle working God we will be able to achieve the impossible. Do not compete with others because God has equipped each and everyone one of us with different talents and task on earth. 

May the peace of God be with us all brethren.  In the Almighty name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth I pray. Amen

The real reason behind Lilian Esoroo and Ubi Franklin divorce

Wonder why Lilian Esoroo left her ex husband Ubi Franklin? Well my confidential sources E.A and J.C. interviewed her and she revealed that her ex husband cheated on her, that why she truncated the relationship so abruptly. At least a lady that knows her worth.
She could have mended the relationship you may say but would you advice your sister or your daughter to stay married to an unfaithful man. Think about the risk of catching diseases, the heartbreak, losing confidence in self. If a man loves and respects his partner he will never cheat despite the distance or if the lady is busy due to her work. 

The beautiful Lilian Esoroo is over the break up and she retains primary custody of their son.

She recently completed her latest movie project titled Therapist’s therapy by ONESOUL FILM production. 

Message of the day

When you have an unshakable faith is when our Heavenly Father is able to start and complete the good work that He has promised to do in our lives. The enemy want to frustrate us and he may come in many forms but our faith in the Word of God and by living like His son Jesus Christ will help us face any storm. 

Whether you are battling a sickness,  lack of job, missed opportunities, marital issues, depression,  shameful past etc. if you pray and ask God to renew your strength and faith every morning, He will surely help you and clothe you in a new ensemble of mercy, joy, love, happiness and truth.

Never give up because God gives is hardest battle to his strongest soldiers.

I pray in this very moment that anyone who plans evil against us shall be condemned by the Almighty God and their plans failed. 

Those who want to bring us down, shall be exposed and they will have no options than to bow down their head in shame and tremble in our presence. Not because of our physical power,  intelligence and external beauty but because the Almighty God lives in us.

May the peace of the Almighty God be with you all my brethren. In the Almighty Name of His son Jesus Christ of Nazareth I pray.
