There is no rise without a price. No one succeeds by accident.

I believe it is time we accept full responsibility for the change we desire, lest we perish as liabilities.

In my view, every blame on governance is rooted in a bad citizenry, after all, the leaders are chosen from among the people. It is only a responsible citizenry that can produce a responsible leadership.

it is time to begin to empower the people through the transmission of life-applicable and life-transforming information that will motivate them into action and turn them into world changers.

Only those who are willing to pay the price ever win the prize.

Things fall on their own but a force is required to enforce a rise.

I agree that some things do change with time but I also know that time itself changes nothing.

Waiting for a change without doing anything makes no sense; it is the application of relevant forces that guarantees a change for the better.

There will never be a rise without a price.

I believe discipline is the capital price you pay for every desired change. Discipline in my view, can be defined as doing what is required to get what is desired. It is doing what is demanded not what is convenient.

George Washington said "Discipline is the soul of an army; it makes small number formidable, it procures success to the weak and esteem to all."

I believe discipline is the key to success.

Every man is the cause of 75% of his problems. If someone else has a share, he can only be responsible for a maximum 25% of the blame.

A failure would have still failed with or without anyone's help.

Only those who believe in the need for change remain in charge.

If you are through changing, you are through.

"Stubbornness and an unwillingness to change is the energy of fools"

"He that will not apply new remedies must expect new evils"

There cannot be a change for the better without a cost.

Mahatma Gandhi said, "we must strive to become the change we want to see."

Someone else also said "Example is not the main thing in influencing others; it is the only thing.

It is time we stopped wishing for a change. Let's start working at it.

Socrates said "anyone who will move the world, must first move himself"

It is only changed men that become world changers.

 Nothing is more valuable than insight in the journey of life. If you leave your life to chance, you don't have a chance.
