Lessons from ROMA 2009

I had earlier predicted a 2-0 victory in favour of Manchester United. Alas, I was wrong. The scoreline was 2-0 in favour of Barcelona FC.

Lessons I learnt:

1. There are somethings in life we just do not have any control over.

2. We can never successfully predict the future.

3. Our goals and plans can be totally disrupted and changed.

4. God knows everything and we should rely on HIM for everything including our future.

5. Our goals, aspiration, plans and dreams must be in accordance with the will of God.

6. If we must have faith in anything, that thing must fulfil God’s purpose else our faith will not work.

7. Things can turn around for good or for bad. Our reaction(s) to change is what makes the difference.

8. Do not base important life decisions on sentiments and horried conclusions. Think things through properly, weigh your options and make educated + informed decisions.

9. We are mere MORTALS. We totally need God to direct our paths.

10. If you lose today like ManUtd, you still have a chance to succeed tomorrow like Liverpool FC :D.

Can you add more to these please šŸ™‚

  1. LOL @ your wrong prediction; @ least there was a 2-0 win albeit in the wrong direction from that which u predicted, so cheer up…lol

    Really good list u have here…will just add this;

    Don’t be afraid to fall; for a righteous man falleth seven times, and riseth up again (Prov 24:16)

    lol @ BSNC…

  2. DB just sod it! Because we didn’t win doesn’t mean we are crap! You lot better recognize! How many defending champions make it to the finals?? How many?? I will beat you oo

  3. hahahaha. pele to Man U. I assumed they would win too, but I guess there’s a first time for everything and like yu said, do not base important decisions on sentiments.
    Y’all should stop hating on them; since yesterday, everyone has been capping on Man U…..which is why i have decided to be their advocate, so Ochuko and Danny, carry time before i wipe the grin off your face.

    Ok words of encouragement to Man U….how many heads does Barcelona have? Oh snap, i am supposed to encourage them. Ok, lets see “this too shall pass”, “Weeping may endure for the night, but joy comes in the morning”, “They who wait upon the Lord will renew their strength and mount up as eagles”, “Its not over until is over”

  4. Ochuko, your twitter message gave me blogspot, i think i’m wordpress. Thanks for that shout out….see why i talk of you? that is, when you are not on the case of Man U
