Timely acceptance propels the process of building your Self-Confidence.

To change your circumstance first start by thinking differently. Form a picture in your mind of the situation as it should be.Hold that picture, develop it firmly in all details believe in it,pray about it work at it and you can actualise it according  to that mental image emphasised in your positive thinking.

I grew up in Egerton University  Njoro Campus and i always desired to shake the hand of the President as he usually visited once a year during the graduation ceremony.We moved from that locality without notice after the demise of my mother.

When i saved a life of a dear friend who was intending to commit suicide in Mlimani Estate by encouraging her to see beyond her broken marriage she gave me accomodation for free as a token of appreciation.I was then living at Jogoo Commercial College Hostels and i had been thrown out due to an accumulated debt.I enjoyed a good home,food,clothing and at one point she paid my school fees.Truly i had met an angel.But when she overcame the marital and suicide issue she changed instantly from host to employer.I graduated from friend to househelp.As a human being she had grown weary of my issues and faithfully i served.

One beautiful afternoon protocol was broken.His Excellency then President Moi's motorcade stopped on the wayside as i descended down to Nakuru town for lunch hour meeting.People were fighting to get his attention i continued to walk only to be called back by a hand streched out of the car and a voice"you,come here"A pathway was created for me in the crowd that was building up.I had no idea it was him until i got to the car.He greeted me and gave me one thousand Kenyan Shilling note bill,he said buy some soda.I said thank you very much for this gift.May God grant you more wisdom as you continue to govern Kenya.Kindly when your time to descend power comes remember to do so without blood shed as women and children will suffer.There was a standstill as people wondered why am I taking too long and they want to be gifted too.He said thank you and his motorcade drove away. My childhood dream of greeting the president had just come true.

I accepted i had a seed of greatness and nothing less. My past was buried that very day as my tomorrow's success depends upon today's performance likewise for you.

Hello, Betina,

What an amazing testimony! How much is a thousand shilling in dollars? That’s a memorable day indeed to be called from the crowd. Inspiring example of visualization.

Thanks for sharing!

Yes it is an amazing testimony.A thousand kenyan shillings is equivalent to ten USA dollars.Truly God knows each one of us by our names.
