  2. EMEASOBA GEORGE:

    Words are like seeds that are creative naturally. So, which words have you been speaking all the while about yourself, your present time and the future ahead of you? Have you been professing impossibilities and ­negativities rather than possibilities and positivities? However, you should be professing positivities and possibilities and never the opposite. Because, surely you will sooner or later reap or eat the fruits of your words which could be favourable or unfavourable depending on what you are sowing presently with your own mouth. Oh! yes, your words matter. And they do determine a lot. Therefore, beware of your words. I mean, always speak positively and never negatively. ~Emeasoba George.
