Lyrics to Never Give Up: by Yolanda Adams
Visions that can change the world
Trapped inside an ordinary girl
She looks just like me
To afraid to dream out loud

And though it’s set for your idea
It won’t make sense to everybody
You need courage now
If you’re going to persevere

To fulfill your life’s purpose
You’ve gotta answer when you’re called
So don’t be afraid to face the world
Against all odds

Keep the dream alive don’t let it die, if something deep inside
Keeps inspiring you to try, don’t stop
And never give up; don’t ever give up on you
Don’t give up
Every victory comes in time
Work today to change tomorrow
It gets easier
Who’s to say that you can’t fly?

Every step you take you gets
Closer to your destination
You can feel it now
Don’t you know you’re almost there?

To fulfill your life’s purpose
You’ve gottaanswer when you’re called
So don’t be afraid to face the world
Against all odds

Keep the dream alive don’t let it die, if something deep inside
Keeps inspiring you to try, don’t stop
And never give up; don’t ever give up on you…

Sometimes life can place a stubborn block in your way
But you’ve gotta keep the faith
Reap what deep inside your heart
To fly

And never give up
Don’t ever give up on you,
Don’t give up

Who holds the pieces to complete the puzzle?
The answer that can solve the mystery
The key that can unlock your understanding
It’s all inside of you
You have everything you need

So, keep the dream alive don’t let it die
If something deep inside keeps inspiring you to try
Don’t stop
And never give up; don’t ever give up on you…

Sometimes life can place a stubborn block on your way
But you’ve gotta keep the faith
Bring what’s deep inside your heart
To the light

And never give up
Don’t ever give up on you
No.don’t give up
No, no, no, no

Don’t give up
Don’t give up
Don’t give up
Oh, don’t, no, no, no, no
Don’t…give…up

Yolanda Adams said it! I just agree with her
There are only few things that lead to failure in life no matter whether you are young or old, male or female, white, black or grey.
Following people’s trends- In life you have to be unique, be a trend setter, yes it seems crazy and stupid initially but persist uzobona- The bible says we were uniquely made in God’s image; it also says he knew you before you were in your mother’s womb and your path was paved then, so just follow your path and it will all be okay. God said I will not leave you alone but I will leave you with the Holy Spirit that will guide you; others call it conscience, intuition, the inner person, idlozi. Whatever it is you know when you are off the track.
Don’t deviate from God’s plan for you because once you do then gossip, greed, jealousy, hatred, and unfaithfulness are the fruits of dissatisfaction, lack of connection with your path in life.

Lack of proper planning- people are good at writing wonderful business plans and proposals, plan businesses years in advanced but can’t plan their lives. Your diary is filled with people’s time but have no time for you. The recent incident in Johannesburg University where there was a stampede and a mother who was accompanying his child for a late application died. We lose our lives, opportunities, energy if we don’t plan; I mean plan early, before everyone else does. This goes well with the above point. TIMOTY 1:9 tells us that God planned our salvation through Jesus Christ before the beginning of times. If God plans his plans so who are we not to plan our lives. It just creates order even for those around you.

Lack of follow up: Expect to irritate a lot of lazy, obstructive people if you are good with follow up. Expect to be called all sort of names like irritation, isicefe, yini ngaye, uyahlupha lo, usefikile ke loyo.
is she still here. But this is the only way to get what you need, good spaced follow up. Just appear
What’s the se to start something a live it half way, it is a wasted energy and time. If you had planned well, prayed about it and convinced then follow up, wait on your dream. For Mandela it took 27 years, for Martin Luther King, it took his whole life. We always ask for how long must I wait. Wait until its done! There’s no other way my sister of brother

This is a very powerful song, I read it, listened to it many times

Verse1- Talks to a lot of us who are scared to talk or tryFrom a single outlet in 1952 KFC has presence in over 100 countries today with more than million outlets and a turnover of $520.3 million providing employment to 24,000 people. Really an outstanding achievement which was made possible by sheer determination and commitment of Great Sanders our dreams because we are too scared of what people think, if they laugh at us, we stopp, if they critisize us we adjust our vision to suit those in higher positions. Look at the most successful theories like gravity, law of reactivities, virgin products, KFC idea by Colonel Sanders who at the age of 65 years old, received his first social security cheque of $99. He was broke, and owned a small house and a beat up car. He made a decision that he has got to change,it takes us to make a decision for our lives to change, set trends and follow up as mentioned above. The only idea he had was a chicken recipe,a very stupid idea to many man, especially during his times, which his friends liked. With that idea in mind, Sanders first served his fried chicken in 1930 in the midst of the Great Depression at a gas station he owned in North Corbin, Kentucky. He was paid 5c for each piece of chicken but look at where he is today.From a single outlet in 1952 KFC has presence in over 100 countries today with more than million outlets and a turnover of $520.3 million providing employment to 24,000 people. Really an outstanding achievement which was made possible by sheer determination and commitment of Great Sanders(HR LINK.in) The smaller ideas with smaller rewards with persistance they grow. Letting go of your dream is like neglecting your child or having an arbotion and regret later when you see your friends babies going to the universities.

vesrse 2: I believe Sanders friends that loved his chicken so much were not his first clients, they might have thought No ways bro! yes chicken great but idea is too big for that peace of chicken .Your idea will not make sense to a lot of people, some will call you a dreamer, crazy, stupid. I remember back in the days of varsity some artists who are well known today, used to be boohed when they get on stage, students will throw orange peels on then now they are throwing themselves and their money at them. We trully cant let our cars of life be driven by anyone. We are the drivers and thats it, there is only one drive in a car and the supportive passengers. If you feel the car is too slow or too fast fr you, then get another one bro!! I am moving no matter the pace but I am making the difference.

May God bless you as you follow your destination
As you plug up the courage to do it
As you persist and follow up
As you ignore all the loud useless noisy voices
Focus on your dream
Focus on those small footsteps
There will be no journey without them
Remember God loves you!
