What the Nobel Peace Prize means to Me – Malala Yousafzai

I was honoured to learn I have been selected to receive the Nobel Peace Prize. I am proud I am the first young person and first Pakistani to win this prize. It is an honour I share with Kailash Satyarthi — a hero in the fight for children globally. More than ever, our world needs more heroes like Kailash. His example makes me brave. Continue reading

3 Easy Ways to Become a High Performer at Work

Everyone wants to work with high performers — and most driven professionals want to be one. These employees — strong leaders who get their work done and drive results — not only excel in their own careers; they also tend to be valuable assets to their teams and companies. “The most important competitive advantage that any organization has is the quality of its talent — the people that run the show, make the decisions, come up with the ideas, design the products, and deliver the services,” says Terina Allen, CEO of management consulting firm ARVis Institute, in a recent LinkedIn post.

Is there Junk in Your Life?

Picture a big ship being worked on in a dry dock. Beneath the waterline is all the junk it has picked up during its several voyage. Nobody can see it, but an experienced captain can feel it because his ship lacks the drive it once had. As a result, companies complain that it takes too long to get goods for their customers, and the ship’s owners are unhappy because it hurts their bottom-line in a competitive market.

Ragamuffin: The True Story of Rich Mullins

Few days ago, I watched a movie titled Ragamuffin. I’ll say this movie is classified as the best movie I’ve seen in 2014. It’s based on the life of Rich Mullins, a musical prodigy who rose to Christian music fame and fortune only to walk away from it and live in a local reservation. Rich is known for so many popular songs, one of which is Awesome God

 
He was raised by a somewhat callous father and a loving mother. In short, he didn’t experience true love from his father. Later on, that experience affected him in discovering the true love of God towards him.

 
Rich Mullins really loved Jesus but was a rebel in church and towards Christian music business. But he never let his own experience while growing up to affect his purpose and love towards God.

 
In all this, he decided to live a life of honesty and reckless faith amidst a culture of religion and conformity to the ways of the world.

 
I learned a big lesson from this movie. Actually, I know the lessons before but this true story helped me reassure my faith in God. I was reassured that, no matter what happens to me in this world, God’s love for me never change. I was also re-assured that, Christianity is all about learning how to love Jesus. Do you really believe in God’s love for you?

 
I’m sure you too will learn lots of lesson if you can find and watch this film. It will help you reassure and re-access your walk with God and how to make changes.

 
Below is a trailer of the movie.

 

 
No matter what you going through now, God got a bigger plan for you. You need to find and follow it with all you’ve got. That’s where you greatness lies and God is waiting to receive all the glory.

 

The Girl Effect: This is the Moment to Rally behind Girls

With little over a year until the Millennium Development Goals expire, we have a once in a generation opportunity to drive mass resources to girls. The Girl Effect movement is seizing that opportunity. Since the Girl Declaration launched in October 2013, we have seen an incredible shift occur. In just 9 months, what started as a rallying cry to get girls on the global agenda has turned into something much, much greater. Continue reading
