There was a very cautious man who never laughed 0r played ,he never risked,he never sang or prayed .and when he passed away,his insurance was denied, for since he never really lived, they claimed he never really died
A man was being tailgated by a stressed-out woman on a busy boulevard. Suddenly ,the light turned yellow ,just in front of him. he did the right thing, stopping at the crosswalk ,even though he could have beaten the red light by accelerating through the intersection .the tailgating woman immediately hit her horn, screaming in frustration as she missed her chance to get through the intersection with him. As she was still in mid ran ,she heard a tap on her window and looked up into the face of a very serious police officer .the officer ordered her to exit her car with her hands up. she was searched ,fingerprinted photographed, and placed in a cell.
After a couple of hours ,a policeman approached the cell and opened the door. she was escorted back to the booking desk where the arresting officer was waiting with her personal effects. he said ‘’ I m very sorry for this mistake. you see ,I pulled up behind your car while you were blowing your horn, waving your fist at the guy off in front of you ,and swearing at him .i noticed the ‘’choose life ’license plate holder, the ‘what would Jesus do ’’bumper sticker, the follow me to Sunday school ’bumper sticker and the chrome-plated Christian fish emblem on the trunk. Naturally, I assumed you had stolen the car’’…..by Alan Smith.
OF THE MANY THINGS YOU NEED TO BE ABLE TO FULFIL IN YOUR vision in life abd be positive influence in any field one skill is key and that is reading. Some of us read only to pass exams or an interview but it’s very important for you and I read lots of books on many different subjects.why? beacause books are an important part of life .good reading skills and knowing lots about many different subjects makes life much easier.itkeeps your mind active and broadens your knowledge .Books allow you to experience joy, wonder and enchantment.they help you to see the world in many different ways factual reading can help you to keep on top of your enjoyment.
Earl Nightingale, world famous motivational speaker ,says it like this ‘’Not enough people realize that it is our ability to use our language that will determine our place on the social pyramid-and that will also control to a great extent ,the amount of money we will earn during our lives ‘’.as a unit we have broken down the the subject of reading with a view of spur you
You can develop a reading culture by starting to read this booster,newspaper,etc. before time you will enjoy just reading.
Always have something to read.Never go anywhere empty handed .
Randall jarrel:’’read at whim !read at w him!’’
Henry david Thoreau:’ ’read the best books first ,otherwise you ll find you do not have time’’
Samuel Johnson:’ ’what we read with inclination makes a much stronger impression .if we read without inclination, half mind is employed in fixing the attention; so there is but one half to be employed on what we read.’’
It could be said that reading is a cause and knowledge an effect. when viewed this way knowledge is perceived to be an end. we sometimes focus on the activity of reading especially when we feel that we haven’t done so in a while just to justify our righteous judgment. this however should not be so. Which have an internal locxus of control which should cause us to concentrate on the quest for knowledge will surely produce the activity of reading.
All the great men have one thing in common :the quest for knowledge which the culminates into effective reading habits. therefore we should learn to put the horse in front of the cart and not the cart before the horse . this is especially useful to us as parents teachers and the like. we should not just tell people to read but inspire them to seek knowledge for ways we can now have effective reading .is t This is the end that makes the difference

Incase you ve forgotten you are a Dilligent man/woman that is going INTERNATIONAL. But let me ask you : how international are you? how far reaching is your dream ? what’s happening in your mind?”as he thinketh in his mind so is he ‘’says the word. Forget about the worlds economic crisis,enlarge the coast of your-think INTERNATIONAL.with this revelation in mind Napoleon Hill wrote a book and titled it, THINK, AND GROW RICH.the world has now become a global village and every man ‘s limitation is his localization .the truth remains;the more you see the more you get because the farther you see, the farther you can go,and the greater the picture in your mind , the greater the future you ll eventually arrive at.
As a true DMite you must posses a global vision about life, and be ready to make strides bring this vision to reality. Remember the heavenly injunction .’’as far as your eyes can see ……that far you can posses. Friends ,where you cant see you can never get so,so, look beyond your present circumstance and see the globe :think internationally, and talk internationally,and very soon you will be there.see you at the top.

People don’t read because the culture of reading is not instilled in them. aside from the factors of time and availability of resources ,the average Nigerian and the black man dose not read .we prefer to talk rather than read .there is this common but unfortunately true saying that if you want to hide something from a black man, put it in writing.
Economic hardship and the struggle to make ends meet in country ravage by poverty do not make reading an attraction. we read mostly because we are compelled to, not because we find it pleasurable .even school going people read only when the exams are approaching. for some others, reading can be a chore, why read about it when you can watch it on tv or get to hear from someone else. the tradition of reading is simply not developed in us.

‘Purpose’ simply defined would refers to the target or desired aim prompting an action or course of actions.
Thus when we talk of the purpose of reading ,we would invariably be talking about the desired target or aim reading. This could also be said to be synonymous with the reason(s0for rading. hence the question ,’’why do we read or need to read’’?
There are numbers of reasons for indulging in the act of reading and these include;
The purpose of reading often times determines what we read and thus it is very important to identify your purpose for reading
1, Reading for relaxation is a good way of freeing oneself of stress from work and disappointments around you. so if you re feeling so stressed up ,get a good book /novel on positive sides of life and maybe on subjects that can cause you to smile or laugh and cast away the stress from you.
2, you could also read for entertainment. you may be feeling bored ,disinterested about everything around you ; this is a good time to pick a comic ,magazine or book that is informative and entertaining.
3, again you could be reading for the purpose of acquiring information. this is a very good reason to read your newspapers, non-fiction books on arts and sciences and the likes.
4,then you read for the purpose of acquiring knowledge. This is a deeper level of reading that goes beyond acquiring information. The intent here is to store up the information for future use etc.
Reading is one major way of being a step ahead of man next to you ;after all there is the saying that ‘’you are what you read’’ so read and read purposefully to make yourself a better man.

It was a busy morning ,about 8:30 am ,when an elderly gentle man in his 80s arrived to have stitches removed from his thumb. he said he had an appointment at 9:00 am.
It took his vital signs and had him take a seat, knowing it would be over an hour before someone would be able to see him. i saw him looking at his watch and decided ,since I was not busy with another patient, I would valuate his wound, on exam, it was well healed, so I talked to one of the doctors ,got the needed supplies to remove his sutures and redress his wound.
While taking care of his wound ,I asked him if he had another doctors appointment this morning, as he was in such a hurry. The gentleman told me no, that he needed to go to the nursing home to eat breakfast with his wife. i inquired as to her health. he told me that she had been there for a while and that was a victim of Alzhemeimer’s disease. as we talked , I asked if she will be upset if he was a bit late. he replied that she no longer recognized him in five years now. i was surprised ,and asked him, ’and you still go every morning and evening even though she doesn’t know whom you are ?
He smiled and patted my hand and said ,she doesn’t know me ,but I still know whom she is,
I had to old back tears as he left ,I had goose bumps on my arm ,and thought of, that is the kind of love I want in my life’.
True love is neither physical ,nor romantic. true love is an acceptance of all that is ,has been, will be, and will not be. The happiest people don’t necessarily have the best of everything ;they just make the best of everything they have.
‘life isn’t about how to survive the storm, but how to dance in the rain ‘.

As a train’s sources of energy and direction ,the locomotive plays a vital role. However , unless a locomotive connects to other cars on t
rack, it is relatively useless. A train’s value comes from its ability to transport massive amount of cargo ,and doing so requires the locomotive to linknup with dozens of freight cars. Travelling itself ,a locomotive would arrive at its destination empty handed .in that case ,its journey would be nothing more than a waste of fuel.
Leaders are like locomotives in that they re blessed with drives ,energy ,and vision .However until leaders learn the art of connection their influence remains minimal. isolation ,their talents accomplishes little, and their efforts are squandered. Let’s look at practical ways whereby leaders can make meaningful connections with others.
8 STEPS FOR CONNECTING WITH PEOPLE
#1 don’t take people for granted .weak leaders get so caught up in the vision of where they are going that they forget whom they’re trying to lead. instead ,leaders would be wise realize that connecting to people and developing them are the surest ways to gain influence. Results happen through relationships.
#2 Possess a different –maker mindset ,A hesitant and indecisive leader doesn’t enliven the hearts or imaginations of people .on the contrary ,leaders who influence and inspire have a difference maker mindset .they connect with others by passing along an infectious confidence in their ability to succeed.
#3 Initiate Movement towards people freight cars sitting on the railroad tracks wont go anywhere by themselves .they will rust and collect dust unless a locomotive makes contact and connects to them .similarly ,most people stay parked due to self-doubt ,fear ,or absence of vision .it takes the connection of a leader to tap into their potential and rouse them to action.
#4 Search for common Ground. anytime you want to connect with a person ,the starting point should be shared interests .if you’re attentive to the point hobbies, and habits of those you lead then you will find ample areas of common ground lunch out from these areas of agreement to build rapport.
#5 Recognize and respect differences.
We are capable of finding common grounds with others but at the same time we need to acknowledge that we’re all different .the greatest influencers realize that differences ought to complement rather than clash. when you demonstrate regard for diverse personalities and meet people on their terms, will appreciate your sensitivity and connect with the understanding you have shown others’ Lives.
People have core motivations that vary drastically and a leader has to discern them to forge a connection with others .Generally ,the key can be unearthed by examining what a person has already done in life and by discovering what he or she aspires to do in future. Once you ve found they ,do not exploit it. Turn the key only when you have the person’s permission ,and always use it for his or her benefit-not your own.
#6 Communicate from the Heart
Nothing repels people like a phony leader; Be authentic when you speak ,and align your actions and words .people respond to passion ,and they will latch onto a vision when it’s communicated directly from the heart.
#7 Share common experience.
Shared experience cement a relationship .for this reason ,its wise to intentional about eating out with teammates ,inviting them to join you on an errand ,or taking in a play or ballgame together. The greater the connection you will forge with them.
