 FOH Words of Wisdom

Success and breakthrough of life will never lower its standard to accommodate you. You must work your standard to align with success' standard. When God promise to feed every bird of the air, it does not state He will bring the food to them in their nest. Whosoever can't rise up to face their challenges to success will not be counted among the heroes.
