All through my life, I have cooked only once and it was a disaster. I was in year 1 at the university and had a friend who didn’t know how to cook, just like me. One day we decided to cook. We set the pot on the ground and put every ingredient: fish, meat, pepper, oil, etc, into the pot and then poured enough water into it. I directed him to make sure the quantity of oil was equal to the water. This done, he went to get matches to put light on the stove and then put the pot on the fire. It was a daylight disaster, especially, the water and oil!

In life, everything must not exist in equal quantity before they would have equal effect. You must not be in or join the majority before you stand on or do what is right! Quantity is not always superiority!
If you were to cook 3 cups of rice, would you add 3 cups of salt to it? NEVER! In every preparation of rice, the rice always OUTNUMBERS the salt, yet the little salt makes a HUGE IMPACT in the overall outcome.
In every room at night, the size of the electric bulb compared to the size of the room could be in a ratio of as much as 1:5000, but the VOLUMES OF DARKNESS IN THE HUGE ROOM DISAPPEAR in a flash ONCE THE SMALL bulb is flicked on!
Sometimes, because we feel OUTNUMBERED or OVERWHELMED by the size of our circumstances and challenges or the people who don’t believe in us or who are doing the wrong thing, we see ourselves as POWERLESSNESS. And then, we decide to go with the flow, with the crowd, and not standing up for what we believe is right. Wrong!
Remember: LITTLE DOESN’T MEAN INSIGNIFICANT.
Your presence should make a BIG difference in your time! They are the RICE, you are the SALT!
IF THE OIL IS EQUAL TO THE WATER, THE SOUP WILL BE WRONG!
Yes, YOU CAN!
