GIFT OF LOVE from the HEART OF GOD
There is nothing as beautiful as knowing & loving God 100% because you end up knowing & loving yourself 100%. Upon waking, or anytime you wish, just open your eyes and look around you. Feel the cool gentle breeze that melts into your eyes and refreshes your mind. Look all around you and smile with gratitude. Let your heart sing songs of praise. Just say THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU to the one who brought you into this world; the one who knows your past present and future; the one who controls every breath you take. Enjoy, love and respect life, it is a gift to you and you didn’t have to do anything to deserve it, it is just a GIFT OF LOVE from the HEART OF GOD
More Floating Thoughts after reading Richard Brandson’s wise words:
Great stuff!!!! Thank you so much Richard. At this ‘late age’ I have decided to cool off and take a break from the limelight; & committed myself to a flexible MBA in Music for the next 3years. With 45 years of experience, practicing as a full time visionary musician and a community development activist for youth and children; I am haunted by the voices that cry from a deep dark hole of this glorious Music Industry. I strongly believe that finding a different way and sharpening the skills can contribute to the betterment of every single musician. I am so tired of hearing the same complaints; the dark hole keeps getting deeper and deeper. We need to take some drastic practical for change to come; (as Richard Branson puts it in his 5steps: 1. Listen more than we talk, 2. Keep it simple, 3. Take pride in our work, 4. Have fun & let success will follow, 5. Rip it up and start again)
Words of Wisdom from Richard Branson
As LinkedIn is a business that started in a living room, much like Virgin began in a basement, I thought my first blog on the site should be about how to simply start a successful business. Here are five top tips I’ve picked up over the years.
1. Listen more than you talk
We have two ears and one mouth, using them in proportion is not a bad idea! To be a good leader you have to be a great listener. Brilliant ideas can spring from the most unlikely places, so you should always keep your ears open for some shrewd advice. This can mean following online comments as closely as board meeting notes, or asking the frontline staff for their opinions as often as the CEOs. Get out there, listen to people, draw people out and learn from them.
2. Keep it simple
You have to do something radically different to stand out in business. But nobody ever said different has to be complex. There are thousands of simple business solutions to problems out there, just waiting to be solved by the next big thing in business. Maintain a focus upon innovation, but don’t try to reinvent the wheel. A simple change for the better is far more effective than five complicated changes for the worse.
3. Take pride in your work
Last week I enjoyed my favorite night of the year, the Virgin Stars of the Year Awards, where we celebrated some of those people who have gone the extra mile for us around the Virgin world. With so many different companies, nationalities and personalities represented under one roof, it was interesting to see what qualities they all have in common. One was pride in their work, and in the company they represent. Remember your staff are your biggest brand advocates, and focusing on helping them take pride will shine through in how they treat your customers.
4. Have fun, success will follow
If you aren’t having fun, you are doing it wrong. If you feel like getting up in the morning to work on your business is a chore, then it’s time to try something else. If you are having a good time, there is a far greater chance a positive, innovative atmosphere will be nurtured and your business will fluorish. A smile and a joke can go a long way, so be quick to see the lighter side of life.
5. Rip it up and start again
If you are an entrepreneur and your first venture isn’t a success, welcome to the club! Every successful businessperson has experienced a few failures along the way – the important thing is how you learn from them. Don’t allow yourself to get disheartened by a setback or two, instead dust yourself off and work out what went wrong. Then you can find the positives, analyse where you can improve, rip it up and start again.
May we always hear-see-do-understand God’s word in any form it shows up.
Pls add up to 3 more good habits to complete my list
1. BREATH: 1st thing upon waking – at anytime you find space to do so - and just before you retire to sleep; take deep slow breaths – diaphragm rising when you inhale & diaphragm collapsing when you exhale
2. KNOW YOURSELF: what you like & what you want; be honest with yourself
3. SURRENDER THE EMPTY SPACE TO GOD; you can never fill it up.
4. REMAIN AVAILABLE FOR GOD; & GIVE GRATITUDE always; He is the one who enables you

Ngiphakamisa izinyawo zime odongeni, imilenze ivumele ukwehlakwegazi liyophumula emqondweni
Nengqondo ikhethe ukuphumula – ilalele – ibonge – idumise ubukhulu nomusa ogcwele impilo yami
Besengidonsa umoya ocwebile ojulile ngesineke; ungena – uphuma – ngilalele – ngiyabonga – ngilalele – ngiyazithoba – ngiyabonga – ngilalele – ngiyazithoba – ngiyayivuma intando kaThixo ngenhliziyo yami yonke

Amacebo akhe nezikhathi zakhe konke kuphelele kuphephile
