Hey fam! I asked my big brother to share a bit of his thoughts with you guys. Below is what he had to say. I hope you grab something from it! Enjoy! :-D

DIAMONDS

Strange topic huh??? Of course I can guess yes!

Why diamonds?? Because my name is Icez??? Noooooooooo…but because I have lived to find out that if our lives are like diamonds(selective, rare, admirable etc), we’d live everyday glittering, shining and above all very very strong.

Note: Most diamonds are over three billion years old, two-thirds the age of the Earth. There are a few “youngsters,” though, which are only 100 million years old.
Lesson: If we try to live our lives like the diamond, we’d get old and still look as fresh as ever.

Note: diamonds can withstand extremely high temperatures and corrosive conditions; they are transparent to most forms of light and electromagnetic radiation.
Lesson: As diamonds, no matter the present situations of life, we are strong, we can withstand it and await the glorious moments when we share our testimonies.

Note: Diamonds are used to sharpen axes
Lesson: have u ever heard the old saying “iron sharpens iron”? well axes are very strong but diamonds sharpen them…hey friend, don’t be scared, u can inspire that fellow today.

Note: Diamonds are not discovered in their glittering state, they are refined to be so
Lesson: don’t run away from lessons and inspirational notes that will refine you…they only make you shine and glitter

Lastly friends, let’s try to live like the diamonds…..take it or leave it, our lives will have to shine, glitter and be attractive to others for them to come closer to us. Don’t forget, when they come close, only then can we influence them (positively).

Icez.

A Word From Bruce Lee…

Hey fam! If you feel your environment is making it difficult for you to thrive and become your best, Bruce and I have got the perfect solution for you! :-) You see, sometimes it’s advisable to play the “Sucker” for a short period of time; if that’s what it’d take to get you where you want to go.

I’m not advocating to stoop low and stay low… You can choose to use your current job – where you have to suck up to an exasperating boss – to polish yourself up, and then go out to look for a better one. You can choose to put in all you have into that project, even though others are not working as hard. Realize that the extra research and work you’re doing is making you better and more valuable. Wherever you find yourself, in whatever you do, put in your best, no matter how uncomfortable it may be!

Here’s a little advice from Bruce Lee – don’t need to introduce him to anybody! :-D It’s his recipe for success! Have fun!

Resolve To Be Thankful…

“If you have lived, take thankfully the past.”  – John Dryden

Very often we get so overwhelmed by our “Big” problems that we don’t see the “Small” blessings in them. How many times have you been so wrapped up in what happened to you that you neglect to be thankful to God that you’re alive to tell the story? John Dryden made a great point when he said, “If you have lived, take thankfully the past.” This, I believe, is the new mindset we all should have. Even if you lost everything we had at some point, you’re still here to tell the story! You should be thankful for that. If you were really broke at some point, and had to beg for things, you should be thankful that you’re still here – and hopefully doing better. 

I’m not implying that we should become mediocre. I’m not saying to be thankful for your old clothes and not buy new ones, or be thankful for your very low paying job and not learn the skills required to get a better one, but I’m suggesting that you see something to be thankful for in the situation you’re in right now.  Be thankful for the head that’s giving you migraines. Be thankful for the job that’s driving you nuts; because there are lots of people out there with no jobs! Be thankful for school stress, because soo many people would die to learn what you’re learning.

So, strive tosee the positive in the negative. Train your mind. It won’t happen overnight. Catch yourself when you’re overly complaining and find something to be thankful for. It might not be the “biggest” of things, but be thankful to God anyways. I promise you, you’ll discover a whole new perspective to life! :-)

I once heard Jim Rohn say, “Set high goals for yourself; not just for the thrill of its achievement, but for what it will make you to achieve it.” When he said it, I caught it! And I’ve never let it go since then!

You see, the focus is supposed to be on the disciplines we practice and impose on ourselves to be able to achieve the goals we set! At the end of the day, it’s what you’ve become that counts; not really what you achieved. You want to work so hard at your goals that you learn to properly manage your time, plan your day, set daily objectives, all of this leading to the eventual achievement of that one goal you set for yourself. So that once you’ve achieved that goal and it’s all said and done, you would’ve become a better person than you were before setting out to achieve the goal!

On another occasion, I heard Brian Tracy talk about learning a new language and the impact it has on the brain. He explained that by learning a new language or developing a new skill, you make your brain cells form new neural networks. This makes you smarter! So once again, the focus was not really on the language but on what you’re becoming! Smart! :-D

So, don’t worry about what people will think or say. Just set high goals for yourself and stay disciplined to achieve them. Resolve within yourself that you’ll do whatever it takes to achieve them. It’s a new day, we’re just 9 days into the ninth month, there’s still room to become more. Go through your day today conscious of what you’re becoming!
