Encouragement Poem by Kholekile Monakali


To be what you want to be, be like a bee.
If a bee wasted its time comparing its big
body with its small light wings, it would not
be flying today.

Use every obstacle you face as the stepping
stone, to move closer to the life you desire.
The more stones you have the closer you
are to the life you desire

We are all faced with a series of opportunities
brilliantly disguise as impossible situations.
I believe in goals its never a bad thing to have
goals and dreams, but let us be practical about them.
When I think of vision I have in mind the ability to
see above the majority.

You have a choice to choose anything you want
in this world, Why not choose successful, but
try not to be the person of success only but
also to be the person of value.

Courage will come from wanting to do it well.
Security comes from knowing you can do it.
Confidence comes from having done it well.
My Mother gave me greatest gifts 'courage and
patiency' which I believe anyone could give another person.

You are your most important source for making
your life work, no matter how crowded the sky
may be with stars I always find myself among them.
Sky is not the limit for me I want to go beyond the sky.
I do not give up in life.

I believe that endurance comes from energy inside
and stops at nothing when striving want to achieve your goals.
If you are going to achieve excellent you develop
habit, in little matters.
Excellence is not an exception, it is a prevailing attitude.

People are where they are because that is where they
really want to be, whether they will admit this or not.
You can get everything you want in life, if you will just
help others enough to get what they want.

Life can give you hundred reasons to cry but you
can give life thousands reasons to smile.
Self esteem and self love are the opposite of fear
the more you like yourself the less fear anything.
Let each become all that he was created capable of being.

Do what you can do, with what you have, where you are.
Do not regret the past, do not fear the future, just enjoy
the present.
The scars you acquire by exercising courage, will
never make you feel inferior.
Most of the people give up just when they are about
to achieve success.
They quit on the one-yard line, they give up at the
last minute of the game, one foot from a winning

I can accept failure, everyone fails at something
but I cannot accept not trying.
Be strong in body, clean in mind, lofty in ideals.
We are sometimes feel what we are doing is
just a dropp in the ocean, but the ocean would be
less without that missing drop.

Our prayers are answered not when we are
given what we ask, but when we are challenged
to be what we can be.
Let us close our eyes.....may god bless
each and everyone who want to achieve something
good in life.
You may now open your eyes and you will see
the light to success. Amen.

You rightly state it is up to you to pursue your dreams.Persistence pays off but too many give up trying
