The Real Peace Formula

Understanding the Absolute Truth

At present, we are concerned primarily with two things: one, ourselves; and the other, the place where we live.

The Champion’s Edge

The champion’s edge is not in a gifted birth; a high Intelligent Quotient (IQ) or in talent. The champion’s edge is all in the ATTITUDE (how you do what you do); not aptitude. How you do what you do determines the quality of the results you get in your life. It is what you do […]

Your Future Lies with God

Your future is not determined by who YOU know and who YOU don’t know, who likes YOU and who doesn’t like YOU? The power to fulfill YOUR destiny is within YOU! Almighty GOD put it in there… YOU should make every effort to discover it… harness it… master it and exhibit it to HIS glory. […]
