The Continuation of the teaching to men…It will bless all men.
The insanity of champions.
It is Thomas Edison the great inventor who developed many devices that greatly influenced life around the world, including the phonograph, the motion picture camera, and the electric light bulb. He had this to say about his failures when trying to develop the lightbulb “I have not failed. I’ve just found 10,000 ways that won’t work”. Even from failure there are many lessons, and one of the key lessons is which path not to take. It is Albert Einstein who is attributed with this quote Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. The main lesson from failure is to show you what not to do. Try it again but another way.
Einsteins’ definition of insanity needs to be applied in the right context. There are some things you must stop doing in order to stop getting a certain result. But then there are also some things in life you must keep doing, even-though you are not getting a desirable result at the moment. The result will come later, simply because perseverance is a master key for success. Einstein’s statement applied in the wrong context can break the spirit of perseverance which is needed for you to be successful. Perseverance is simply the steady persistence in a course of action in spite of difficulties, obstacles, or discouragement. So my argument then in light of Einsteins, statement to be successful you need a certain element of insanity.
Here are the insane elements every champion has.
1.Insane work ethic. To be a Champions you have to work hard beyond those in your field.
2. Insane Self belief. To be a champion you have to believe in yourself
3. Insane Focus. Whatever you focus on multiples in power in your life. To be a champion you have to focus on your gifts, talents and skills.
4.Insane Competitiveness. To be a champion you have to refuse to be number 2 in your field. Champions have a “I have to be number 1” mentality.
5. Insane hatred of losing. To be a champion you have to hate losing. Personally I hate losing. To be a champion you can not be comfortable with losing.
6. Insane will to win. To be a champion you need use your will win to force a win where it looks impossible. The will to win means, no matter what happens at the end of this we will win.
7. Insane self pressure . To be a champion you have to learn how to put pressure on yourself to make it happen. Your mentality must be like this, “the pressure is on me for it to happen, no one will make it happen for me, but me.”
First of all we would like to apologise for the poor sound on this Podcast. Our Media team had a glitch, which will not be repeated. We pride ourselves in producing top quality sermons and the sound quality was compromised on this one. Due to the high demand for this sermon, we have patched it up as best as we can. Be blessed by the word.
The Word shared at the men’s breakfast.
There are 30 individual healing events in the gospels. It’s interesting that of the 30 healing events 6 women were healed the final 24 events are all men. Of theses 24 healing events there are 18 healings proper, 4 deliverances from demons and 2 resurrections. As ministries in the world we are dealing with 3 men, dead men, possessed men and wounded men.
A working mums guide to get your little one to sleep in her own room
As a working mum you will soon realize that it is tougher to juggle things when your baby is under the age of 5. Any child under the age of 5 is still very dependent on parent for everything. It is when they get above 5 years where they start being less dependent and more determined to do it by them-self.
One of the key areas that many mums are concern about is juggling the role of a wife and that of their new title mum. Most women feel they are torn between the two, with women finding it more consuming to take care of their little one sometimes at the expense of their relationship.
The baby in the bedroom certainly doesn’t get much room to romance or pay attention to each other. It is because of this that I decided to when Bokang was 6 months that it was time for her to move to her room.
This little one was so comfortable in our bed having both dad and mum on her side. So as you can imagine the task of moving her to her room was not going to be easy with this little one who was now very aware of her surroundings.
When it comes to baby in room there are three options:
1. Never let baby in your room or bed from day one option. This worked for some of my friends but definitely not for me.
2. Let baby in your room or bed for 6 weeks only before she is fully aware
3. Let baby in your room or bed for first 6 months until the risk of SIDS has reduced.
Well I would love to have baby in my room for as long as she is comfortable there but I realized that has consequences both for my marriage and also on baby’s confidence with her on space. So at 6 months the journey began to get Boksy into her room….
Look out for my next blog on the journey.
Until next time.

It’s important to know who you are.
