The choice is ours

Good morning, master Ade. Mrs Irene demands your presence in her office right now.

Mrs Irene, the director? Hope all is well, master Ade asked the receptionist, Kate. I don’t know, but I feel all isn’t well.

β€œHmm! Kate, the big mouth, you haven’t refrained from Gossiping,” Kunle, Ade’s friend intruded. Well, brother quickly go and see her and know what she wants. You can’t know if you don’t ask.

Thanks, Kunle. You are always optimistic. I love that.

Good day, Mrs Irene, Miss Kate said you sent for me, Ade said smiling. At least to subdue the fear in his heart. 

Sure, I did. I sent  to you. You can sit, Mrs Irene said pointing to the barbers-like chair. Alright, ma, Ade said with a faint smile again.

Well, (she cleared her throat), you know the company is facing a strong challenge now. I mean we’re in a slump and debt too, the market hasn’t been favourable lately.

To this, I will be paying some staff off. To put the company in equilibrium. Ehm! Ma, without knowing what to say, he stammered. 

Don’t worry, just pass the information to other staff

Alright, ma. I will certainly. Ade was left with mixed feelings.

Bro… Guys! Hmm, β€œYawa don gas.” My life is finished, I am doom, where will I start from? How will I pay my bills? Ade said, with eyes filled up with tears.

So I will start from square one again. My kids, my wife, how will I send money to my parent. I am finished, he added with his hands on his head.

What happened, brother? Kunle and Ephraim solicited. Madam said, she will be paying some staff off due to the current position of the company. As in β€œshe go sack some people.”

β€œYou see say my life don finish”, Ade bemoaned.

Ephraim was just quiet, he didn’t utter a word. But his face was simply saying, β€œI am finished.”

Then Kunle burst, β€œMy case is different, I can’t be sacked, whether the company is down or not, I am covered. I am excluded from those that will be sacked, in short, it is time for my promotion.”

Everyone’s eyes were fixed on kunle, are you sure he understood what I just narrated? Ade asked.


What is the take-home?

Words they say are life. The words we speak can either make or mar even our life.

The majority of us believes in great things, but few of us manifest them. Perhaps the reason is that we are believing and not speaking.

You can’t expect a good result when you’re still speaking negatively. You can expect to be wise when you still call yourself a fool.

To achieve good results, you should be able to speak positively. You may be asked, what about keeping quiet?

That is exactly Ephraim’s case. A close mouth is a close destiny remember. Keeping quiet is as good as declaring negative things. Keeping quiet shows that your case is even worst, you are so bitter to the extent you can’t  even utter anything.

Keep a confession list, not just that but a positive confession list. Say to yourself:

𝑰 π’‚π’Ž π’˜π’Šπ’”π’†

𝑰 π’‚π’Ž π’…π’Šπ’‡π’‡π’†π’“π’π’•

𝑰 π’‚π’Ž 𝒕𝒉𝒆 π’˜π’Šπ’”π’…π’π’Ž 𝒐f the greatest

   How do you feel about saying those words? Great, right? Don’t just stop, that’s a few of what I recite every morning and evening. You can prepare your confession list. Not just a list but a positive list.
