“For i am now ready to be offered and the time of my departure is at hand.i have fought the good fight.i have finished my course, i have kept the faith:Henceforth, there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge shall give me at that day: and not me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing”-2 Timothy 4:6-8
Today the world pays tribute to the late Former South African President.On Facebook there were messages from Jamie Foxx, Tyler Perry, TD Jakes, Jonathan Budd, Darren Hardy etc reflecting the impact he had.He acknowledged that “death is inevitable.When a man has done what he considers to be his duty to his people and his country, he can rest in peace”.The former statesman continued “what counts in life is not the mere fact that we have lived.it is what difference we have made to the lives of others that will determine the significance of the life we lead”
Madiba as he was known, obviously through wisdom from the ages shared inspired words.You’ll find them relevant in your journey of the network marketing business, where rejection, apathy, attrition are common and its a long walk to freedom:”The greatest glory of living lies not in never falling, but in rising every time we fall”-
“Do not judge me by my success, judge me by how many times i fell down and got back up again”
“I learned that courage was not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it. The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers that fear”.
Mr Thabo Mbeki, another former South African President said: “President Mandela and his generation discovered their mission…they were at all times faithful to it, as a result of which they fulfilled it”.Have you discovered your mission and have been faithful to it?
In conclusion, God sends son and daughters once in a while to instill belief and inspire, Madiba was such.Condolences and sympathy with the Mandela family and South Africa as a whole
