Act Like A King, And You Will Be Treated As One.

By Dr. Yomi Garnett

“………Is it not written in your Laws, I have said you are gods?”
John 10:34 (NIV)

It was the tradition in Ethiopia that young princes from different noble families in the realm be brought to live in the palace for a few years for instruction in royal etiquette and protocol. This seemingly constrained scope of training was in fact a thoughtfully contrived façade that concealed a more articulately-designed curriculum in the art of strategic leadership and warfare, and one in which the young princes were subtly pitted against each other for the dual purpose of honing their leadership skills and grooming potential successors to the throne. In many respects, the entire exercise was an Imperial talent hunt of sorts.

Very early in the last century, a young boy, a son of Ras Makonnen, Governor of Harar Province in South-East Ethiopia, was a member of this elite class of princes. His name was Lij Tafari Makonnen, and he was brought to live at the Imperial Court in 1906, at the age of fourteen. Right from the outset, it was patently clear that this particular prince was a cut above the rest. He carried himself with uncommon dignity, exuding a supreme confidence that was not only a rare attribute for that tender age, but which far surpassed that exhibited by the older princes. His speech was impeccable and he had (continue reading…)



Your Little, Golden Drops of Almond Oil

By Dr. Yomi Garnett

“To trust a man, you must know his house.”
The Caliph

THE SECRET OF HAPPINESSOnce upon a time, in the old Ottoman Empire, there lived a shoe cobbler who loved his only son so much that he wanted the boy to have only the best the world had to offer. So, one fine, wintry morning, he dispatched the young lad to the far reaches of the Empire to seek out the wisest man in the world, to learn about the secret of happiness. After a sojourn lasting sixty days, the boy, whose name was Fahd, finally arrived at the place of abode of the wisest man in the world, a distinguished-looking man called The Caliph, by all who knew him. The Caliph lived in a beautiful and well-appointed palace, high up in the mountains. Fahd found him in the Grand Ballroom of the palace amidst a plethora of activities. Against the background of a small Arabian orchestra, merchants came and went, people engaged in discreet conversations in corners, and another motley crowd converged to partake of a sumptuous banquet of the most delicious food laid out on long tables. The Caliph was obviously hosting an important event, as he was preoccupied with little snatches of animated discussion with one guest after the other. Fahd had to wait for six hours before the great man could give him the slightest attention.

Fahd: “My father has sent me to you to learn the secret of happiness.”

The Caliph: (after listening attentively for a few minutes) “I do not, regrettably, have time yet to explain the secret of happiness. However, I suggest that you take a tour of my palace and return to (continue reading…)

Your Street of Divine Destiny


By Dr. Yomi Garnett

He lifted me out of the slimy pit, out of the mud and mire; he set my feet on a rock and gave me a firm place to stand.”
The Psalmist

Every season requires its own stories. In this season, the global economy is in the alarming flux of a recession, with individuals, families and nations witnessing a downturn in their fortunes.
I relate this poignant story to show that, sometimes, it’s in the depths of despair that great resourcefulness is born. Indeed, our current adversity can be the propelling motivation for the brilliant flash of inspiration that will turn our life around.

It had been an exceptionally humid day in London, but this somewhat oppressive weather soon gave way to a cool breeze as dusk settled over the city. It was the evening of the fifth day of October, 1843, and a young man stepped out of his house and into a serene neighborhood street near Regent’s Park. He tousled his brown hair with his right hand, and making a brave attempt at cheerfulness, he waved his left hand in a perfunctory greeting to a couple of elegant ladies in an equally elegant horse-drawn carriage. Charles Dickens, arguably England’s most eminent author, was on his routine evening walk. He looked profoundly distressed as his accustomed walk took him farther and farther away from the stylishly graceful ladies and fine gentlemen of his affluent neighborhood and into what the novelist himself called the black streets of London. By the time he got to the Thames River, the gas lamps that lit his way through the better neighborhoods had given way to dull light coming from the windows of tenement blocks to cast an equally dull glow on litter-strewn streets bordered by open sewers. The human traffic had also changed to the dregs of the city: street urchins, pickpockets and beggars.
Dickens’s gloom deepened as this change in human tone evoked traumatic memories of himself as a Your Street of Divine Destinytwelve- year old impoverished boy subjected to the grueling task of attaching labels to an endless stream of pots of black boot paste, for twelve hours a day, for six days in the week, to earn the six shillings that would sustain him. Meanwhile, his father languished in debtor’s jail and poor Dickens was receiving only an hour of school lessons during his lunch break. For the boy, life seemed quite bleak and hopeless, until, by an unexpected twist of fate, the elder Dickens, almost unbelievably, came into an inheritance. He paid his debts and was released (continue reading…)

What Happens When You Express Authentic Kindness?

[youtuber youtube=’http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fokoA4U4P4g&feature=player_embedded#!’]

With the majority of news and media being negatively slanted, I think it is important for us in the self-improvement industry to constantly help people believe in the good of people.

It’s the Holiday Season again and with that comes a lot of different emotions but mostly what you feel in the air is the spirit of giving and kindness and in this post I wanted to display a reminder that any and all of us can make a difference in the world on any given day.

There’s a secret power, a hidden magic, and a wondrous rejuvenating joy that automatically fills your heart when you express authentic kindness. Being kind to others creates just as much benefit for the giver as it does the receiver and in some cases, the giver receives more reward than the receiver. (continue reading…)


“Keep trying” is the rule that must be followed to be successful at anything.

Your success will always be connected with your actions.  Just keep moving towards your goal.

You’ll make mistakes but don’t ever quit.  You may even have to hang on after others have let go.

Persistence means taking pains to overcome every obstacle, to do all that’s necessary to reach your goal.  In the end, the only people who fail are those that do not try.

Your future is a big adventure.  Just remember, all great achievement takes time.

All The Time Opportunity Knocks

Your Daily Motivation

“Opportunity is missed by most people because it is dressed in overalls and looks like work.”  ~Thomas Edison

The race is not to the swift or the battle to the strong, for time and chance happen to everyone.

Take a second look at what appears to be someone’s “good luck.” (continue reading…)


Each one will make you stronger, even though it may be hard for you to realize it at the time.

Life is your classroom in which you’re being tested, tried, and passed.

Always try to stay in the midst of life and activity. Don’t isolate yourself from the action. Your character develops itself in the stream of life.

The setbacks and hardships you endure actually help you in your march forward to success. The world was built to develop your character.

But, life expects you to make progress in reasonable time.  That’s why those third grade school chairs are so small.

Hope you enjoyed this post.

Make it a great day!
