Examples of acquired in a Sentence

  1. Emeasoba George:

    I'm not here on earth accidentally or coincidentally. Rather, I'm here (on earth) for a purpose. And until/unless I accomplish outrightly my purpose of being here (on earth). That is, to motivate, inspire, encourage, mentor, educate and to teach the world and posterity ahead via my thought-provoking quotes, motivations, inspirations and my upcoming books. Also, eventually to make a remarkable difference globally and to become a solution or an answer to the problems of millions of people globally. That's just the moment I will be proud to say boldly that I have lived a fulfilled life. Oh! yes, in case you don't know. Until and unless you fulfill your purpose of being here (on earth) i.e. your God-given destiny. You've not yet lived a fulfilled life. Regardless of whatever you think you've acquired or achieved over the years. Thus, you've got to discover your God-given destiny by all means and do fulfill it outrightly for your own betterment. And most importantly, for the betterment of the world at large and even for the betterment of the posterity ahead. -Emeasoba George
