Hello and welcome to this weeks Piece of Peace, your weekly dose of motivation and inspiration. This week I would like to share with you on the topic, “Down Today, Up Tomorrow”. I will keep my message as brief as possible today.
I just want to encourage those of you reading this that are going through difficult situations at the moment. One thing is certain in life and that is no matter what happens, you will always have bad days and good days. Sometimes we may even get one of those extremely difficult days, which threaten to destroy everything we have worked so hard to build. The real skill here is learning how to master those challenging days and turning the mess into positivity. We may sometimes feel like we are constantly facing a never-ending bombardment of issues but the truth is, our adversities are the things that help us develop the character we need to face tomorrows challenges. Every situation we face is equipping us with new knowledge and life experiences, which help mould our perception of the future, and how to best deal with problems that may arise.
It is never fun when things take a turn for the worst. Trust me I know. This week has been especially difficult. I had a project that I was working on for a number of years which fell through at the last minute. Everything seemed certain and ready for success and I honestly did not see how things collapsed. But I had to remind myself that the failure was making way for something much bigger and greater. Remember this when something unexpected happens to you next time. You are on a journey of greatness and that means that no one situation can determine your final outcome. You have everything it takes to change your personal circumstances. All you need to do is believe in your abilities and never stop working hard. Like my mentor always says, “when life hands you lemons, you make lemonade”. There is a silver lining in every situation and your ability to recover quickly from setbacks is predominantly determined by your perspective on that situation. Remember whether you think you can or whether you think cannot, you are right on both counts.
Adopt a positive mind-set to the problems that come your way and you will find the negative things that happen to you will not linger for longer than it needs to and no matter what you do, always remember, be yourself because everyone else is taken.

Call for entries: Lifebuoy Opens Applications for handwashing ‘Chief Education Officers’
Unilever’s Lifebuoy, the world’s number one hygiene soap brand, has launched a creative competition that will see two (2) Chief Education Officers aged between 6-12years appointed to raise awareness on the importance of handwashing among school children.
Leveraging the power of peer-to-peer learning, the ‘CEOs’ will be selected from public and private schools in Ghana to help create impact by teaching other children about handwashing and personal hygiene in a series of fun and exciting activities.
The campaign dubbed ‘Lifebuoy H for handwashing CEOs’ is part of Lifebuoy’s activities to mark Global Handwashing Day which occurs every year on the 15th of October.
Global handwashing day is an international handwashing campaign dedicated to motivating and mobilizing people worldwide to improve their handwashing habits as a strategy for disease prevention.
In 2020, Lifebuoy launched the H for Handwashing campaign to transform the letter H into a symbol for handwashing and to integrate hygiene awareness into the school curriculum. In 2021, Lifebuoy launched its first ever children’s book- an “H for Handwashing” alphabet book – in which children can explore the Alphabet with Azzy the horse. The book is intended to support school curricula all over the world, whenever and wherever children are taught the ABCs.
This year, Lifebuoy is going a step further by passing on the baton to the next generation who will teach their peers about handwashing, as studies have shown that children are more likely to change their behaviour when influenced by their peers.
Lifebuoy is encouraging Children from public and private schools in Ghana between the ages of 6-12years to take up this unique and exciting challenge.
Parents, Guardians and Teachers are also urged to encourage their children and pupils to participate in the competition by following these guidelines:
- Share a 30- 45 seconds video of your child reciting their campaign manifesto by explaining what hygiene means to them and how they will promote better hygiene in their schools.
- All entries must include the #GHD2022 #LifebuoyCEOgh #LifebuoyGHD22 #HforHandwashing hashtag and be submitted on Facebook and Instagram only via the brand’s pages @LifebuoyGhana.
- Entries are open until the 10th of October, 2022.
The two selected CEOs will get the chance to become part of Lifebuoy’s award-winning ‘H for Handwashing’ movement and receive a certificate from the Unilever Ghana Leadership Team for their participation and commitment to the cause. As part of celebrations to mark Global Handwashing Day, they will also visit the Unilever headquarters and factories to teach employees the importance of handwashing
The ‘CEOs’ will commit a minimum of ten hours a year to help spread the message of handwashing with soap to other children, at home and in schools. To enable them perform their roles, they will be trained in the use of Lifebuoy’s decade-old and well-proven behaviour change material which will equip them to take the message forward.
