THE LIVING THERAPY; DO YOU WANT TO LIVE LONG OR DIE LONG BY MASTERPIECE DAVID OLAWADE

THE LIVING THERAPY; DO YOU WANT TO LIVE LONG OR DIE LONG BY MASTERPIECE DAVID OLAWADE

“Death isn’t the greatest loss in life. The greatest loss is what dies in us while we live”.- Norman Cousins

If I’m asked; “at what age do people really die more?”, I will say; “between the age of 20 to 30 but are buried later at old age”.

Many started dying at the teenage age between the transition to adulthood where they experience being left in the coma of indecision, peer pressure, wrong counsels, poor parenting and negative influences.

Very few are actually resuscitated from this coma as they have the chance to live again and get things right while others are left in this disheartening condition till they finally get to meet a blow that would finally take life from them.

Their eyes stopped working the day they lost their vision, their heart stopped pumping immediately they lost their passion; their Central Nervous System started having complications when they can’t trace their ambitions and harness their potentials.

Of what use is a life if he doesn’t understand the time he is living in?

Of what use is a life who has lost the purpose of existence?

Of what use is a life who has no sense of relevance and whose absence is not felt?

As I walk from house to house, across the streets, visit communities and graced events, I have seen a great company of dead cadavers who don’t know their obituaries is that image they see in the mirror when they are yet to discover purpose and do the necessaries in being who God has made them.

Some have given in to embalmment processes of trying to prosper out of their purpose or shortchanged their desires with something just to make a living. The real sense of their lives has been taken away from them and ignorance has been the epidemy of this alarming death rate.

So disappointing today that many organizations some folks found themselves have become their mortuaries, some jobs have become cemeteries while some seemingly attractive opportunities have given many the privilege to attend their own funeral. The undertakers carrying their caskets are their so called “friends”.

Many died because they didn’t survive the accident of their nation’s economic situations, wrong spouse, negative influences, disappointment, choice of wrong carreer and so on. Some were given death sentences by the people around them while others by their hands made decisions to take life from themselves.

I believe some people don’t have to be addressed as “late” after they are buried because their legacies still out live them. I also feel the use of “late” for a deceased means, “the individual is dead for long but late to be buried”.

Men like Myles Munroe, Billy Graham aren’t late because their legacies live on while those individuals who died with their potentials untapped died earlier before they are buried.

Not everyone who died at age later than 70 lived long if they don’t fulfill purpose. It is better to say they “died long”.

A man starts dying the day when his purpose, passion and potentials can’t find expression. Are you among the living on this prospect? Do you want to live long or die long? Do you want to be addressed as late after your demised on earth?

EVEN GREAT HEROES HAD A LATE START; THERE IS MORE TO LIFE THAN WHAT YOU ARE EXPERIENCING NOW BY OLAWADE JAMES

My beloved elder brother taught me how to write as a young secondary school boy. I always begged him to assist me with my essay assignments having the knowledge that he was the best essay writer in his secondary. I had good scores with those essays as my English teacher wondered how I came up with those creative write ups.

One day, James said to me; “David, how long will I continue to help you write? Think and write something, you can do it better. Go ahead, write your imaginations and let me do the editing for you till you learn how to do all yourself”.

These words marked the beginning of my writing skills and I won’t stop giving my brother part of the credits for helping me get a clue for my purpose over the years. Below is an article I got from him yesterday, he is presently working on writing one of the endorsements for my latest book “The Empowered Life” and he would also be writing the prologue of my next book “IMPACT DRIVEN LIFE”. Love you brother, I’m privileged again to publish another of your article on our platform. You remain an asset of inestimable worth to me.

EVEN GREAT HEROES HAD A LATE START; THERE IS MORE TO LIFE THAN WHAT YOU ARE EXPERIENCING NOW BY OLAWADE JAMES

I must be sincere it has been a tough journey thus Far. It’s been tedious and slow but even Rivers know this: “there is no hurry”. We shall get there some day.  

Trees that are slow to grow bear the best fruit. Even though my fruit came late, it’s worth it. Thank God for His daily blessings. 

God turned the adversity into a blessing.  In the light of love, I find the glory of God’s grace.

A Life of compliant is a wasteful life. Don’t find fault, find a remedy; because anybody can complain.

The struggles we endured today will be the ‘good old days’ we laugh about tomorrow.

2018 will Surely be a better Year for us all.  Incorporate this into your 2018;

More smiling, less worrying. 

More compassion, less judgment. 

More blessed, less stressed. 

More love, less hate.

Live the Life of Your Dreams: Be brave enough to live the life of your dreams according to your vision and purpose instead of the expectations and opinions of others.

Don’t let the expectations and opinions of other people affect your decisions. It’s your life, not theirs. Do what matters most to you; do what makes you feel alive and happy. 

Don’t let the expectations and ideas of others limit who you are. If you let others tell you who you are, you are living their reality — not yours. There is more to life than pleasing people. There is much more to life than following others’ prescribed path. There is so much more to life than what you experience right now.
