I live my life based on gratitude

I live my life based on gratitude yes! I see every situation as an opportunity to be grateful. growing up wasn't easy not because we were very poor but because my dad is a disciplinarian that won't want his kids to have everything in abundance which sincerely, i used to hate him for but when i got older i realised that he did it for the best. i have no regrets about those hard days infact im grateful that i had those days because thats is the only reason why today i can survive through every situation. If i wake up in the morning healthy, and I all my family and friends are alive I'm always filled with gratitude. i try to keep it simple, maybe its easy for me based on how i was engineered or brought up! but i really dont want too many things. if I have good food, light in my house, decent clothes and my work..I'm satisfied, I don't want the best car, the best clothes, the best grateful for what i have presently. I'm so grateful for being alive to

How to make withdrawal as an agent on bet9ja

Today i'm going to show you how to withdraw from bet9ja especially as an agent  I realized a lot of agents do have a lot of problem with knowing how much or how  to withdraw to their bank account whenever they have winnings   so today i will be spilling the beans and by the end of this post  you should never and ever call customer care again on how to withdraw or how much to withdraw  ok lets go there... first, go to and log in to your bet9ja agent 'admin account'  before you start the withdrawal process the first thing to do is to know how much you can actually withdraw, most people forget that they need to remove the sales they made from the cash they will be asking for from the company  But how will you really know how much to withdraw ? first  from ''my account'' go to  ''report''  at  bottom left corner  Then from 'report' you click on  ''sportracingdeposit''
