What more could I do? Duru, am so proud of you, you saw it, and you went all out to make it happen thank you for this opportunity.

BUSINESS FOR TODAY
My name is Mariam,
I am young but I am not confused. You know why? Because my confused days are over. However if there is anyone who hasn't been confused about something in their lives before, please hola at me, I would like to meet you, your kind is rare.
It seems like we all at some point have been confused, some people are even still confused about their purpose, career, academics, relationships, family and alot about life. The obvious question is WHY THE CONFUSION?
To be CONFUSED is to be LOST.
An old secondary school mate of mine came to see me at work, its been years since we last saw and you can be sure that we had a lot of catching up to do. He gisted with me what he had gone through shortly after our exams. He said due to the fact that he had failed a number of times, he was so depressed and he didn't understand why he was living so he attempted to take his life. he decided to take overdose of a drug his mom usually took to sleep well so he went out to different drug stores to get this drug which he believed will help him die fast. But guess what, all the drug stores he checked asked him for a doctor's prescription which he didn't have so they didn't sell to him. But notice that all the times his mother sent him to buy, they never asked for a prescription, but why this "faithful" day? Only a lost, confused and hopeless person will attempt suicide...dont you think so? This story may sound crazy but am sure there are many young people like this friend of mine. CONFUSED
In his fury he cried out and said, God, since you didn't allow me take my life then tell me what your PURPOSE for me is.... The rest like they say is history. He is now a graduate of Economics and hearing him speak, I knew he was going to be a great guy.
THE INTERESTING THING ABOUT BEING CONFUSED IS THAT IT HELPS YOU FIND YOUR WAY THROUGH, YOU ARE PUSHED TO FIND ANSWERS TO THE QUESTIONS IN YOUR HEART. BUT THEN, THE BAD NEWS IS THAT NOT EVERYONE EVENTUALLY GETS CLARITY.
A man who hasn't discovered purpose is bound to be confused. Why do you think relationships between two people who don't have any sense of purpose never lasts long or amounts to anything productive? Its because they are confused. I am sorry but the truth is that we have confused students, confused graduates, confused teachers, confused couples.
This is the equation LIFE - PURPOSE = CONFUSION & LACK OF PRODUCTIVITY.
The question is: do you know WHY YOU ARE YOU? DO YOU KNOW WHY YOU ARE STUDYING THAT COURSE? DO YOU KNOW WHY YOU ARE IN THAT RELATIONSHIP? WHY ARE YOU DOING WHAT YOU ARE DOING?
You may think, must I have a reason for living? Well, yes you must. It will go along way in helping you set your priorities and help you focus. Believe me guys, a life with a clearly defined purpose is always worth living.
How do you discover purpose? Connect to your source and your questions about you will be answered and gradually with time, the things you are confused about will become clear. The truth is that you can NEVER know a product better than the manufacturer that's why for every product you buy, there is always a producer's manual. Self discovery and self development are also very important.
My confused days are over because I am plugged to my source and He is Helping me with the reasons why He made me. I may still have some areas that I am not clear about but well, I am not as confused as many years back...lol...
Enjoy the rest of your week and live purposefully!
Love you all!
