He is the closest of all your friends and he is your best and trusted confidant. You will never see him come in through your front door because he is always with you. He does not appear in enemies clothing or with weapons of mass destruction but the truth is that he is your enemy. He comes with the smiles of a friend and with a hand of friendship but his agenda is simple and clearly spelt out; he is out to bring you down and keep you out. So he is your greatest and most dreadful of all your enemies because he knows everything plus the ones you don’t, about you.
Have you ever stopped to asked, who is responsible for all the procrastinations, laziness and misfortunes in your life? Or who tells you that it can’t happen, you are not qualified and that you can’t make? Have you ever found out who has brought you much evil than good in life? Every day and moment is a battle, because we have to choose between what we have to do and what we want to do. And there is only one man –an enemy, who is responsible for all the wrong choices you have made in life, he is the one that has done you much evil and responsible for all your misfortunes. And I am sorry to break your heart because all these while I was talking about YOU, yes….. YOU are your number one enemy because everything you do, decisions or actions keeps you where you are or take you a step ahead in life, it either adds to you or takes from you. So they only way to stop yourself from bringing you down is learning self-control because that is what it takes to do what you have to do not what you want to do. Thus be on the watch or on guard first, over yourself; what you do-your actions, reactions and what you say- your words so that you don’t dig a pit or set a trap for yourself knowing that you remain the only architect to your fortunes or misfortunes.
