the one-quarter rule to winning

Angie promised to bake her auntie a 6-inch chocolate cake. Her recipe said to use 3/4 cup of Cocoa powder.

Angie had only 1cup, 1/2, and 1/4 cups in her measuring unit. What did she do?

Yes, she measured 1/4 + 1/2 cups of Cocoa.

In life, you may not always have the perfect tools to bake your dreams into existence.

Use what you’ve at your disposal instead of giving up.

  1. Great piece darling. Giving up is not an option. In the midst of a seemingly difficult situation, there’s always a solution lying somewhere.

  2. “If life was one smooth road everyone would attain their goals
    life is a rooad with twists, bumps, cruves, and turns as well
    every individual can’t navigate a such a road
    this is why success and failure
    comprise the coin
    success on one side of the coin
    failure on the other side of the coin.”

    1. Hi Mildred, thank you for sharing. I felt blessed reading from you. There’s failure, there’s success in life. We’ll experience each one time or the other.


      1. My name is Van Prince and I am a man. I use Mildredprincewelch as my blog name. Mildred is my mothers name and I use it as my blog name to honor my mother, but it can be misleading and I am single. I thank you for being soooo creative!

  3. Angie and I must have belonged in the same high school math class! β€˜Cause she could have reduced the number of scoops and used the 1/2 + 1/4 cups! πŸ˜ƒ
    Anyhow, it’s always the end (outcome) that counts, right! Thanks for the inspiration.

      1. Oh precious lady! I tell you HS was a mess, well not totally; but only as far as maths and geography were concerned. But post-HS bumped me a notch higher – and to God be all the Glory. πŸ™πŸΎ
