Don’t concentrate on the Rahab in Rashida Black Beauty only, there are other insights her story brings to the students of life and success. I condemn her choice of words in her viral video and subsequent ones in no uncertain terms. As believers, the only thing we can do for such a talented girl and the many Rashidas out there whose stardom have some accompanying faults or limitations as a results of broken homes, poor background, and bad company. Oh God, we pray, bring genuine helpers in the form of good parenting and mentorship, financial support, righteous men and women who will lead many of those to greatness and above all touch the hearts of the Kushmen during this 31st Watch Nights across the Country. Let the stories of the Rashidas end up like the Rahab in the Bible.
Now, beyond her choice of words, what else? What’s my takeaways from Rashida’s story against of Afia Pokuaa’s article that got me thinking? To summarize the Vim Lady’s article, what the Hell should society award Rashida Black Beauty and not the highly accomplished KNUST Medical student Dr. Fathia Karim?
I am stirred to add my voice to Rashida, the talk of town in Ghana at this moment. Reflecting on articles and options of the many who have opined on Rashida’s viral video and its successive Jigwe Award, I think I have to deprecate and condemn Rashida’s choice of words and boast of sexual prowess with all of my inner strength and energy. Rashida has somewhat shown that we as people are unsuspectingly losing our poise, formality and moral scruples. Is it not awful to see a young girl at the basic level of our Ghanaian education pinpoint herself out as a mastered sex mentor and guru?
“The best choice of every man is to become the greatest that is possible for him to achieve.”
The US president elect, Donald J. Trump is undoubtedly one of the greatest champions of our generation. So I engaged his thoughts on who a champion is? What does it take to become a champion? The insightful secrets were intelligently documented in his New York Times Bestselling Book, Think Like A Champion. Here are the 7 essential keys I learned from Donald J.Trump:
1.CHAMPIONS THINK LIKE CHAMPIONS
As a man thinks, so is he (Proverbs 23:7). You are your thoughts. If you don’t believe in yourself first, no one else will. Champions have faith in their abilities. Thomas Edison, the historic champion after unsuccessfully trying1000 times to produce the light bulb, a journalist interviewed him and asked, why did you fail 1000 times, surprisingly, Thomas didn’t see that as failure, here is an inspirational statement he made, “I did not fail 1000 times. The Light bulb was an invention with 1000 steps”. Champions think positive, they always see the cup half full rather than half empty. No matter the obstacles they face, they always continue to think and see things differently.
2.CHAMPIONS THINK BIG
Thinking big costs nothing but it always leaves us with much.
Champions think of building castles and not digging graves. They always want to achieve something BIG; something special. They work in a big-time way. Ordinary wouldn’t be enough for someone who has the mindset of a champion. It is said that, there is no limitation except the ones we acknowledge in our minds. Indeed, the only difference between the impossible and the possible lies in determination. The choice is yours. To think big, you must look at things not as they are but as they can be. Henry Ford said, whether you think, you can or you think you can’t, you are right. Believe it can be done. “When you believe, something can be done, really believe, your mind will find the ways to do it.” I dare you to think bigger, to act bigger, and to be bigger because you are a champion.
3.CHAMPIONS ARE GOAL SETTERS
Champions are full of dreams and plans, and rarely are they identified with mediocre aspirations. Champions consistently set long and short-term goals. From day to day workout goals to long term career objectives, champions have written out specific, measurable goals with deadlines. If you aim at nothing, that’s all you get. Nothing! Champions go the extra mile to pursue and achieve their dreams. They take responsibility for their actions. They know if they are to succeed, they must be in charge. “Champions aren’t made in the gyms. Champions are made from something that is inside them: A Dream, A Desire and A Vision.” Mohammed Ali
