Thoughts of Aptitude & Attitude

Destiny is not a matter of chance, it is a matter of choice. Everybody at one point in their life has the chance to be great at something. If God gave you a gift, don’t shame him by throwing it away because determination today leads to success tomorrow. Has anybody ever told you that? Image

The truth is nothing can bring you peace but yourself, self trust is the first secret to success. So turn your stumbling blocks into stepping stones and climb high, climb far…your goal is the sky, so you aim at the stars, Because the future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.

The secret of self-confidence and courage hinges on the kind of thoughts you think, so hold an image of the life you want, and that image will become fact. Because to give without thought of grain, to help without expectation of personal benefit, is the ultimate in loving concern. Giving is vital to spiritual growth!

I am not stealing or claiming to be the original creator of many of these sentences, I simply arranged them together in a string of lines to create encouragement and positive enlightenment.

I have learned that the tests of life are not meant to break you, but to make you. At least that’s what they say when you are going through the crazy bad times. But if you have been there, you know that you feel empty and alone. But a positive mental attitude is a belief that things are going to turn out well, and that you can overcome any kind of trouble or difficulty.

ImageSo learn to relax, your body is precious as it houses your mind and spirit. Inner peace begins with a relaxed body. In contrast, the capacity to be either happy or unhappy is determined by the manner in which you react to whatever happens.

Through faith, man experiences the meaning of the world, through action he learns to give it meaning. Which brings me to remind you that to everything there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heavens. Because this world is but a canvas to our imagination.


Sitting at the edge of Fish River Canyon; of Braai-Broodjies and Baboons

Nice story.

So here I sit at the main view point on the edge of Fish River Canyon, Namibia. It is too early for my liking and the best way you tell that I have been rousted from my bed too early is that I am still clutching my travel mug full of coffee and I am still wearing my Pyjamas under my fleece. But so is Nic so at least we are a matched pair!

Having arrived at our campsite in Hobas in plenty of time last night, we dutifully set the alarm for 5:30 am this morning to make the 10 km drive out here to the main viewpoint overlooking the head of Fish River Canyon.

I have always believed that the only legitimate justification for being awake before 6 am is either a family emergency or in order to make it to the airport in time for a flight.
