A rabbit entered a shop and asked:
“Do you have Carrots ?”.
They said no we don’t have!
The following day he asked again:
“Do you have Carrots ?
They replied:
” We said we don’t have carrots, if you come back again asking we gonna screw a nail in your head with a hammer”
The third day he came again and Asked. Do you have a Hammer?
They said NO.
He said:
“What about nails?
They said NO.
Then he said:
“Do you have Carrots?

Don’t let the devil scare you he doesn’t have anything.

Just pursue your dreams.

Tough Truth That Will Help You Grow

As you look back on your life, you will often realize that many of the times you thought you were being rejected from something good, you were in fact being redirected to something better. You can’t control everything. Sometimes you just need to relax and have faith that things will work out. Let go a little and just let life happen. Because sometimes the truths you can’t change, end up changing you and helping you grow.

Here are twelve such truths…

1 Everything is as it should be. It’s crazy how you always end up where you’re meant to be – how even the most tragic and stressful situations eventually teach you important lessons that you never dreamed you were going to learn. Remember, oftentimes when things are falling apart, they are actually falling into place.

2 Not until you are lost in this world can you begin to find your true self. Realizing you are lost is the first step to living the life you want. The second step is leaving the life you don’t want. Making a big life change is pretty scary. But you know what’s even scarier? Regret. Vision without action is a daydream, and action without vision is a nightmare. Your heart is free, have the courage to follow it. Read Awaken the Giant Within.

3 It’s usually the deepest pain which empowers you to grow to your full potential. It’s the scary, stressful choices that end up being the most worthwhile. Without pain, there would be no change. But remember, pain, just like everything in life, is meant to be learned from and then released.

4 One of the hardest decisions you will ever face in life is choosing whether to walk away or take another step forward. If you catch yourself in a cycle of trying to change someone, or defending yourself again someone who is trying to change you, walk away. But if you are pursuing a dream, take another step. And don’t forget that sometimes this step will involve modifying your dream, or planning a new one – it’s OK to change your mind or have more than one dream.

5 You have to take care of yourself first. Before befriending others, you have to be your own friend. Before correcting others, you have to correct yourself. Before making others happy, you have to make yourself happy. It’s not called selfishness, it’s called personal development. Once you balance yourself, only then can you balance the world around you. Read Psycho-Cybernetics.

6 One of the greatest freedoms is truly not caring what everyone else thinks of you. As long as you are worried about what others think of you, you are owned by them. Only when you require no approval from outside yourself, can you own yourself.

7 You may need to be single for awhile before you realize that, although the co-owned belongings from your failed relationships might not have been divided equally, the issues that destroyed the relationships likely were. For how can you stand confidently alone, or see the same issues arising in your newest relationship, and not realize which broken pieces belong to you? Owning your issues, and dealing with them, will make you far happier in the long run, than owning anything else in this world.

8 The only thing you can absolutely control is how you react to things out of your control. The more you can adapt to the situations in life, the more powerful your highs will be, and the more quickly you’ll be able to bounce back from the lows in your life. Put most simply: being at peace means being in a state of complete acceptance of all that is, right here, right now.

9 Some people will lie to you. Remember, an honest enemy is better than a friend who lies. Pay less attention to what people say, and more attention to what they do. Their actions will show you the truth, which will help you measure the true quality of your relationship in the long-term.

10 If you concentrate on what you don’t have, you will never have enough. If you are thankful for what you do have, you will end up having even more. Happiness resides not in possessions, and not in gold; happiness dwells in the soul. Abundance is not about how much you have, it’s how you feel about what you have. When you take things for granted, your happiness gets taken away. Read The Happiness Project.

11 Yes, you have failed in the past. But don’t judge yourself by your past, you don’t live there anymore. Just because you’re not where you want to be today doesn’t mean you won’t be there someday. You can turn it all around in the blink of an eye by making a simple choice to stand back up – to try again, to love again, to live again, and to dream again.

12 Everything is going to be alright; maybe not today, but eventually. There will be times when it seems like everything that could possibly go wrong is going wrong. And you might feel like you will be stuck in this rut forever, but you won’t. Sure the sun stops shining sometimes, and you may get a huge thunderstorm or two, but eventually the sun will come out to shine. Sometimes it’s just a matter of us staying as positive as possible in order to make it to see the sunshine break through the clouds again.

The Role Of INEC In Electoral Rigging

Photo credit: sunnewsonline.com

Three day to the general election, but it has been a tough week for INEC, having to deal with the pressure they are to meet the date line having postponed the election that was scheduled for last weekend to this weekend due to logistics.

There many crying foul to the postponement, as it is a plane to rig the election for the ruling party.

My concern is to the fact that there are fake ballot boxes and papers already in possession of many political parties.

I made video https://youtu.be/kZLDaILqZUw about the role of INEC in electoral rigging.

The practice of INEC in printing excess ballot papers has made it possible for elections to be rigged. This is an organization that have data and statistics, they know how many registered voters are in Nigeria, they know to the total number of collected PVC’s so why print excess ballot papers, also one of the major suppliers of sensitive electoral materials is also contesting in thr forthcoming elections.

I wish Nigerians can come together and demand a change from INEC. We need to start having Voters Identification Number printed on ballot papers or if possible switch to electronics voting system. We also need to have the next president of Nigeria to sign the Electoral Amendment Acts.

Thank you.

INEC Who Is Responsible

Gimbiya of PurpleSilver Book Club wrote this and I think we need to make sure someone is hold accountable and responsible.

Some states declared WORK-FREE day yesterday with possible economic losses running into billions (that is if they even bother to put figures to decisions of this nature).

Many Businesses, including BANKS, observed half-day work yesterday thereby sacrificing billions in the process…

Federal, State and Local Governments have deployed human and material resources and logistics (which would now probably have to be pulled back or resettled somehow against the rescheduled dates) at sums that will blow the mind…

Businesses (most especially media organisations) have also deployed resources at great sums that are most definitely unrecoverable…

Hundreds of thousands, if not millions, of people have, at great personal costs travelled locally and internationally to ensure we carry out this civic obligation…

Transactions, both local and international, were deliberately scheduled, arranged or structured to accommodate the dates earmarked for these elections (you can’t even begin to put numbers to likely cost of ANOTHER rescheduling!)…

At individual relationship level, only God alone knows what would happen to wedding dates (and other important occasions) that were fixed probably after taking into consideration the election dates…hall rentals already paid for, flight tickets booked, leave days approved etc…

And some remorseless and unapologetic people that had 3+years to prepare for a single assignment, just sat there around a table to tell a Nation of over 200million people that elections have been postponed…not weeks before…not even days before…BUT few HOURS before and in the dead of the NIGHT when responsible people have already slept with the rested assurance that the impending new day will offer another opportunity at resetting this Nation!!!

Why are we like this in this Nation? Why do we treat ourselves with no respect? Why are we so insensitive and inconsiderate?

The most painful and bitter reality is that nobody and I mean NOBODY, will be sanctioned for this. We will simply move on, shrug our shoulders and await the next brutal disappointment! Just the way we roll!

The Anonymous Reliable Source

Fake news and information has been the order of the day, of recent there has been a high rise in the number of fake news in circulation. Sadly must of this fake new are been reported by licence media outfits.

Fake news is a tool use in diving the masses and creating confusion and also the cover up for the truth. Many fake news are misdirection given to the masses in order to hid vital happenings, today fake news are been initiated by government to keep the masses in the dark.

What is the way out of this is for the masses to demand the truth and not facts, the truth of the matter is what will finally eradicate fake news. All facts are not truth but all truth are facts and truth.

We must break away from trusting statement like this “from reliable source” “who ask to be anonymous” when the a news or information have no real backing then it’s not true.

People who speak the truth are not afraid so they don’t stay anonymous, most times those anonymous individuals are a bad intention and seeking to ruin someone’s live or reputation.

I challenge all who want to speak to back the words with truth and not hid behind the mask of anonymous reliable source for evil intention.

You shall know the truth and the truth shall set you free “Jesus Christ”

Thank you.

Doing The Needful.

Ten (10) lives were saved at Kabba Kogi state on the 2nd of February when a private chopper crash landed.

Among the survivors is the Vice President of Nigeria with his aids and crew members. As a Nation we are happy and join the 10 and their families in giving gratitude to God for the averted tragedy.

I am doing the post because there are many social media trending posts and tweet about the accident.

There is a case of the brave man who have the video footage of the crash, he was lashed on twitter for not rushing to the crash location and offer immediate help but was recording. Other were offended because he keep saying Jesus repeatedly instead of doing something. He actually did the bravest thing he can, getting the crash on record, he can not just rush in and offer help to a crash the have the VP of the Nigeria. He might not have any first Aid knowledge or the know-how of handeling emergencies, so he did what he could do and as such be seen as a national hero (I suggest he giving a national honour “Member of the Order of the Niger”)

There those that use it to gain political relevance and also solicits for cheep votes, since the Nation is heading towards the polls in about twelve (12) days from today. They say that there was an attack in the northeast and many lives where lost and the presidency have not say anything about it and as such the victims of the crash deserve no sympathy as no life is better than another. But what can one possibly get from such political nonsense. It is better to be morally correct than politically correct.

The VP went ahead to continue with the campaign in Kogi, because they all survived without any major injuries (it was reported no injuries at all). Many hail the VP as a brave man. Me I am of the opinion that continuing with the campaign is not an act of bravery. The 10 of them should to be given extended rest and psychological evaluation. The trip be cancelled to avoid PTS.

We need to work on our emergency response to incidences like this, when you watch the video there is no sign of any form of organized rescue team or operation, no Ambulance, no fire service, no NEMA.

It is a pity that the VP of a nation will be rescued from a crash unprofessionally, it is a pity that we are not concern with how they could handle the trauma but we hailed him and allowed to continue with the campaigns.

As a nation like Nigeria with one of the largest presidential fleets why will the VP use a private chopper?

Post Traumatic Syndrome is real and it is dangerous both to the victim and those around them, I know we don’t believe in PTS in Nigeria but it is real and harmful. They all might to have been hurt physically but mentally and psychologically they might be hurt.

We need to learn to do the needful as a nation.

Thank you.

When You Hate You Belittle Your Self

“I shall allow no man to belittle my soul by making me hate him”
Booker T. Washington

We most time are push to the world and end up hating the person who push us thus far.

But when we hate we are actually looking down on ourselves, we are to love and not hate. When you have you put yourself at the mercy of the person you hate, you allow them have control over your feelings and emotion and there by give them power over you to be able to manipulate you.

When you hate you feel the pain alone.

So make a commitment not to allow anyone make you belittle yourself by hating them.

Don’t hate but love at all cost.

Under age marriage.

Talking about underage marriage, in Africa we are the center of underage marriage in the world.

I am from Nigeria and I live in the North Western Nigeria (am from the North Eastern part of Nigeria), and the North West is where underage marriage is mostly practice.

I stay in Sokoto where underage marriage is a norm and not seen as bad, Sokoto have a very high cases of women living with Vesicular Virginal Fistula (VVF).

Underage marriage is a marriage between one of the two (or both) person involve in the marriage contract or agreements. I am looking at underage marriage not in the context of birth age (18 being legal or official), but looking at the persons as not being matured physiologically. Mentally, physically, and emotionally not being matured is also tagged as being underage. The girl child are mostly the most affected by this.

I am writing about underage marriage, I was in a village in Sokoto for a research work, and my guide a young boy of about 9 – 11 years of age said a statement that almost brought tears to my eyes.

Faruku and his friend saw a small girl passing by and his friend said “har anyi ma yarinya nan wanka” which means this in English “This girl has already been married off”. Then Faruku said they are just suffering this girl, they went ahead to talked about other young girls who are even in their matrimonial homes.

These young boys feel bad about the underage marriage, what saddens me was a young man who was with us and he sees nothing wrong with the girls being married off ag that young age, he is even trying to defend the practice and fault those you boys and being boys and don’t know anything yet. During this discussion a lot was going on in my mind and here are a few of them.

  1. How do these young boys know that these girls are too young for marriage?
  2. How come this young man don’t see the evil of this practice?
  3. Are these young boys truly too young to know what is marriage?
  4. Will they still hold on to this believe as they grow up as underage marriage is bad?
  5. How come the people of this community welcome such a practice?

As I finished my work and headed back home I was just disturbed in my spirit and I remember when I visit Maryam Abatcha Women and Children Hospital Sokoto, I saw so many women young girls most of them about 13 – 15 years of age suffering from VVF. I begin to wonder how did they get to this state and what is the solution?

I think more awareness and enlightenment and sex/reproductive health education has to be intensify to get everyone aware and enlighten. Leaders and elders of the communities need to be involve in this awareness campaign.

I pray there will be more voices who will  rise up and speak about this.

We Need To Turn A Blind Eye For Peace

In live we come across stories that bring great morals and lessons for life.

Today’s story holds a great lesson for all.

A man married a beautiful girl. He loved her very much. One day she developed a skin disease. Slowly she started to lose her beauty. It so happened that one day her husband left for a tour.

While returning he met with an accident and lost his eyesight. However their married life continued as usual. But as days passed she lost her beauty gradually. Blind husband did not know this and there was not any difference in their married life. He continued to love her and she also loved him very much.

One day she died. Her death brought him great sorrow.

He finished all her last rites and wanted to leave that town.

A man from behind called and said, now how will you be able to walk all alone? All these days your wife used to help you.

He replied, I am not blind. I was acting, because if she knew l could see her ugliness it would have pained her more than her disease. So I pretended to be blind. She was a very good wife. I only wanted to keep her happy.

Moral:- Some times it is good for us to act blind and ignore one another’s short comings, in order to be happy

No matter how many times the teeth bite the tongue, they still stay together in one mouth. That’s the spirit of FORGIVENESS. Even though the eyes don’t see each other, they see things together, blink simultaneously and cry together. That’s UNITY.” May God grant us all the spirit of forgiveness and togetherness.

  1. ”Alone, I can ‘Say’ but together, we can ‘talk’.
  2. “Alone, I can ‘Enjoy’ but together, we can celebrate

  3. ‘Alone, I can ‘Smile’ but together, we can ‘Laugh’.

That’s the BEAUTY of Human Relations. We are nothing without each other

The razor blade is sharp but can’t cut a tree; the axe is strong but can’t cut the hair.

MORALS: Everyone is important according to his/her purpose. Never look down on anyone unless you are admiring their shoes.

HOW TO INSPIRE MANNERS IN YOUR CHILDREN.


My family

Raising children with good “manners” is very difficult in this Post it, Share it, Like it, Tweet it, Pin it, Upload and download world.
The Best way if by inspiring them by living out what you want them to be.

  1. When entering the house greet your children or even hug them. This should help develop their sense of love and self worth.
  2. Be good to your neighbours and never backbite. Never speak ill of other drivers when on the road. Your children would listen, absorb and emulate.

  3. When calling your parents, encourage your children to speak to them. When visiting your parents take your children with you. The more they see you take care of your parents the more they will learn to take care of you.

  4. When driving them to school, don’t always play albums or cds in the car. Rather, tell them some motivational stories yourself. This will have a greater impact – trust me!

  5. Read to them a short story and even a scripture a day – it doesn’t take much time, but very impactful in creating strong bonds and wonderful memories.

  6. Comb your hair, clean your teeth and wear presentable cloths even if sitting at home and not going out for the day. They need to learn that being clean and tidy has nothing to do with going out!

  7. Try not to blame or comment on every word or action they say or do. Learn to overlook and let go sometimes. This certainly builds their self-confidence.

  8. Ask your children’s permission before entering their rooms. Don’t just knock and enter, but then wait for a verbal permission. They will learn to do the same when wanting to enter your room.

  9. Apologize to your children if you made a mistake. Apologizing teaches them to be humble and polite.

  10. Don’t be sarcastic or make fun of their views or feelings, even if you “didn’t mean it” and was “only joking”. ~It really hurts~

  11. Show respect to your children’s privacy. Its important for their sense of value and self-esteem.

  12. Don’t expect that they will listen or understand the first time. Don’t take it personal. But be patient and consistent.

13.Pray with them. Show them how to pray. Lead by example.

  1. In addition, ask them to discuss their daily plans after the morning prayers. Children without concrete daily plans usually join others in executing theirs. They fall easy to peer pressure.

15.Hold them and bless them specially every morning. Please share with other parents.

God bless you for your time

Thoughts And Words

Live runs by thoughts and words.

When you are alone watch your THOUGHTS and when you are with people watch your WORDS.

Words are powerful they have the ability to Create, to make, to empower, sustain, to kill and to give live.

As powerful as words are they are not as powerful as thoughts.

Watch your thoughts because you become what you think, and out of the abundance of your thoughts you speak.

Just allow life to take its course you cannot change everything and everyone.

The Popular Scavengers now, a Famous Gold Miner

vulture.jpg

Hi everyone (Great Minds), as we begin this weekend i will like to share this with you a discussion my brother “Philip Gana Malgwi (Philmalgwi)” started in a whatsapp group about looking at another side of the coin when things don’t seems to go well.

Topic: “The Popular Scavengers now, a Famous Gold Miner”*

The only thing am going to say here is popularity and fame are synonymous but believe me the latter worth much.

Great people are famous while anyone can be popular.

What makes you popular and has yielded results for you turns you up to being famous said one of my great Mentor and friend.

We all know vultures as scavengers… My questions is… Can’t it kill it’s own prey? Why do other animals​ have to finish it up before it arrives?

Why do other animals run move away from it?

Do you know that the presence of vultures hovering around a particular place signifies it has “identified” something to eat?

Looking at the situation of the country…

I saw FRSC commission list of candidates eligible after screening for the CBT aptitude…

I marvelled.

#diversion

I have seen how many of my peers in anger and frustration of certain Expectations from the government insult and post comments on their social media handles.

(Am mute about that)..

Back to out discussion..

Do you know the vulture never stayed Hungry? Even whilst it’s being seen as a scavenger?

You can find possibilities amidst difficulties.

My friend Michael Ozioma from Delta state today is an academician… Who has brought out a venture to educate, inform and build entrepreneur through provision of real estate and other. How did he start?

We served in Ibadan. Housing was an issue. That became his concern.

“Pains and passion yields up a desire to act.”

If you feel pained by the government or issue around you… You have a calling there.

Then passion aligns you move along the path.

 

The great gold miner story.

Who has been to a typical slum in this country? A waste or refuse field where every waste from city like Lagos, Kano is being disposed?

You find young boys scavenging around for aluminum, steel, and other things right?

There was once upon a time a scavenger who lived thus…

Going through refuse in slums to get things to clean and sale.

One day the government chase them out to an outskirts land.

People run away from them… Avoided them just like the vulture and had given them names… Making the guy a “popular scavenger”

😁 Funny right?

What are you popular for/at?

#Reflect and ponder!

If nothing he’s better… 😁 Yea.

At least he cared about being “responsible” and to fend for himself.

One day after a long time scavenging the young man refused to sleep and walk down the vast land…

And he thought why not just dig a pit to be pouring all those waste than let them litter around him.

“Pathfinder in destiny”

#pain and passion

#Reflect and ponder

#identify and discover

#take action

He called his friends told them about it, they started digging and at each point one will leave.

3’fts to a great (unknown) treasure they all set back.

He came back ponder.. dig and re-dig… Don’t give up.

He went back and he’s friend came along. This time they continued and before the day ends…

He’s friends gave up and left him… He followed After… But he had gone back to the city (leaving his friend at the outskirts)

By evening when the sun was setting… He saw some reflection From the wall side of the pit… That was a great gold deposit.

Conclusion…

The whole city had of that and run coming to him…

12 SIGNS SHOWING YOU ARE DEALING WITH AN EVIL PERSON:

Evil is defined as the absence of good. Every person has different definitions of evil and goodness. However, in many cases true evil is very hard to recognize especially for people who always try to find something good in others.

We can not ignore that there are truly evil people around us and we need to learn how to notice the signals that show us when someone means nothing else but to harm us.

1. Reality denial

Regardless of how obvious the truth is these people will always deny it. Their truth is the only that matters even though it is complete opposite of the reality. Their truth is actually reflection of their wicked, unhealthy thoughts and ideas.

2. Fact twisting

These people are incredible manipulators. They are able to twist any fact that they do not want to accept. They possess ability to take things out of context and create a story that is in their favor.

3. Hiding information

All information that they believe can compromise their goals will be immediately withheld. By keeping this information a secret they believe that they are not doing anything wrong i.e. they do not consider this to be lying. However, if this silence harms others than, it is certainly lying. Moreover, they will blame you and make you feel guilty for lacking trust.

4. Misleading people

What they are very good at is misleading you by making you feel attacked, incompetent, vulnerable, afraid or hated. They achieve this by carefully choosing well-thought words.

5. Constant lies

Whatever they may be talking about they will always add” juicy “information because they feel satisfaction when they lie to other people.

6. No remorse

These people will never feel sorry for hurting people. They enjoy destroying relationships or anything that other people find meaningful. They find pleasure in other people’s sufferings. If they see something good, they will do all in their power to destroy it.

7. Avoid responsibility

Lack of moral is one of the key traits of these people. They never admit or apologize for their mistakes.

8. Manipulators

Masters of manipulation is their second name. They always have a plan and will do anything to realize it.

9. Fair-weather friends

They change like the weather. They will be your friends when you are happy and successful. However, as soon as you face hardships they will disappear. Do not expect support from them. They will be around you only if they can gain something.

10. Time thieves

They can not stand other people being successful and they will do anything in their power to prevent them from realizing their plans. They hate when others are better than them .

11. Double lives

They have a different story for everyone. You can never truly get a clear picture of who these people are. They often lead double lives and no one really knows them well.

12. Control freaks

They look at other people as their toys and want to have complete control over them. This can be clearly seen when they lose control over them and their true intentions appear on the surface.

These traits can be found in many people but if you notice more of them in one person then it is time for you to distance from them and to eventually remove them from your life.

Always be careful when somebody appears to be perfect. Try to be more attentive and observant of this person’s interactions because you never know what truly lies beneath.

If There Is Hope Not If There Is Life

hope

I grow up hearing this phrase “if there is life there is hope“, its mostly said to encourage those who are passing through a  difficult time. It often used when one noticed someone is being hopeless.

I grow up believing this phrase so much that i in turn have used it to both encourage myself and others.

The beautiful thing about life is that it has a way of teaching us new things and also teaching us to know what we believe might not just be right. I learn that the opposite of hope is not Hopeless but despair, and so i began to question the above phrase.

The rate at which people commit suicide is at an alarming high rate (Even in Africa) and number of people falling into depression is high too, looking at the stat for suicide and depression i was forces to ask this logical question “if life begat hope then why the suicide and depressions?”.

Your answer might be just as mine, Life does not give hope, rather it is hope that gives life. The phrase should be “IF THERE IS HOPE THERE IS LIFE” , each and every single person that is depressed of commit suicide had life yet reach the point of despair.

In life we should do our best to get people into having HOPE because that will be what will keep there life going and not just tie people down with Just having LIFE, HOPE is the building block to life, we should have hope that no matter how bad the situation or circumstance are there is always light at the end of the tunnel, after the rain comes sunshine.

Learn to give people Hope.

I Must Not Fear

“I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration.
I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me.
And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path.
Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.”
– Frank Herbert, Dune

Quotations

A man’s worth is no greater than the worth of his ambitions.

Desire is the starting point of all achievement.

Leadership is influence.

Life has no limitations, except the ones you make.

Let your hopes, not your hurts, shape your future.

Innovation distinguishes between a leader and a follower.

We never forgive those who make us blush.

There are no passengers on spaceship earth, we are all crew.

 

Hope

hope

In life. we are faced with overwhelming situation that are pushing us to quit, that are tempting us on giving up.

This morning i am telling you that all hope is not lost. The soil might be dry, the light might be dim, the sun might be setting. You can still make it. Inside of every one of us is  a seed that grows when planted and nurtured.

Only Have Hope.

IF YOU WANT TO BE RICH, DON’T GO TO SCHOOL. READ THIS ARTICLE INSTEAD…

eze

I saw this on the facebook timeline of a beloved friend and a brother who’s facebook page is full of inspiration and motivational. Chukwuemeka Michael Eze

IF YOU WANT TO BE RICH, DON’T GO TO SCHOOL. READ THIS ARTICLE INSTEAD…

The school does not teach people how to be rich. they only teach you how to work for others and earn wages. they make you into a banker, doctor, engineer, teacher and all those beautiful names such as you have as well.

And everyone who goes through the school system ends up working for the rich who own the establishments and corporations. most of them aren’t as educated. they have however, mastered the art of hiring the most educated and best professionals to work for them.

Does all aircraft owners know how to fly an aircraft? no! but they know how to hire the best of pilots who have been prepared by the school system to serve the rich, and get paid for their services. But the airline or aircraft owners make billions of dollars in profit from the hard work of the pilots and other employees they have to pay a few thousand dollars in wages, and salaries and one month of paid leave. hahahaha….

Was this why Robert Kiyosaki the author of the book “Rich dad, poor dad” wrote a book which he titled: “if you want to be rich, don’t go to school”?
He wasn’t telling people not to get educated, he was in essence stressing emphatically that the school is not a place to learn how to become rich.

What then makes people rich?
for me, I will say it is the ability to solve problems that makes people rich.
Money is a reward for problems solved or value created. Let’s say you have to get home from work, or you need to move from point A to Point B, you will sure look for a means to get to your destination.

Be it by bus, taxi, Uber or buying a Mercedes Benz Car. whoever solves this need, you will have to pay a commensurate value of money for services rendered, same applies for products sold to satisfy a need. likewise, if you have to help others solve their problems, you will get a monetary value in return which over time, accumulates into wealth.

Be it as it may, you do not get rich because you went to school, or because you speak eloquently, or can make good grammatical construction. No!
you get rich because you are able to solve problems by creating value.

Everyone has needs (problems) as well as monies allocated to solve these problems. (remember how you allocate your next salary even before pay day?)
yes that’s what I’m talking about.

Thus, whoever provides solutions for those needs receives all the monies allocated to solving those needs as an exchange or reward for products offered and services rendered.

Finally, you may want to think about a way to create value and solve problems in your society. it could be about food shortage, water supply, health, fashion, communication, entertainment, education, beauty, and the list is endless.

When you have identified a problem or need which you have a passion for, you must proceed to getting sufficient knowledge about solving it. this may be some hard work or cost you some weeks

rch that ought to be made. but when you are done and able to lunch your solution into the society, people will reward you for your time and hard-work by paying for the value you have created.

This is the sure path to becoming rich. it is by creating value and solving problems.

——–Chukwuemeka Michael Eze

Note: the above article does not intend in anyway to discourage people from having a job or going to school. It is for the very few who has questions on how to be rich.

Seven Habits to Completely Avoid in 2018.

chaneg-2

I was looking at 2017 and taking evaluation of the year and how to make amends for 2018.

I come across a video by Daniel Ally and he is talking about seven (7) habits to completely avoid, so I picked out his seven points to shear with you.

1. Comment searching.

This when we go through the comments on social media post before we make our own comments. Mostly when we do this we are looking for negative comments and at the end we lost our own opinion we are influenced by the comment we read. Comments searching rob us of our originality and creativity.

2. Impulse buying.

This is when we buy things based on impulse rather than need (or even want). When ever you see something and you just want to buy it without deep taught is not good. This is not to discourage you about buying things for yourself, we need to buy good things we need and spend on yourself.

Next time before you buy anything find out if it is what you need or want.

3. Over eating.

Over eating kills your productivity and on a spiritual level dulls your spiritual sensitivity. Like Daniel Ally say “must people that over eat are doing so because of what they miss in childhood”.

Learn a good eating habit of healthy food. I will suggest this eat a big healthy breakfast then a small lunch (if necessary) then a light dinner.

4.  Lust

Lust is a desire to have something without waiting for the right time. Lust can manifest in many forms is not necessary sexual in nature, it can be material lust and others.

Lust takes focus out of our lives, when you drive by lust your life will not productive.

The world now has many suggestion that triggers lust especially via social media, I want to advice that next time you’re tempted to lust, instead of giving it a second look or taught direct your mind towards a set goal in your life and remain focus.

5. Gossip

Every day and everywhere people talk about people. Must time we gossip unconsciously without taught to it.

Must of our discussion with others is about other, but what is been discussed is what make it out as a gossip or not, next time your engaged in discussion about another, take your time to assess the discussion if its healthy or harmful, true or false, productive or unproductive , positive or negative.

Must time people gossip about other because we never confront them, so next simple confrontation such as can we talk about another thing please can help stop gossip.

6. Drugs

Drugs or substance abuse is one of the greatest ills of our generation, must of the youth and some of the aged are addict to some sort of substance. Drugs is not just about crack, marijuana e.t.c. it is a wide range of substance, ranging from nicotine to alcohol. Tobacco smoking, drinking. I will encourage you to look deep into your mind and identify your addiction and change it ton something positive.

7. Drifting

Drifting is letting time pass by without you actually accomplishing anything. Must time in our busyness we let a lot of time drift by without doing anything meaning full.

I will encourage you to try and a lot more with your time, you can write a book, you can compose song, music, poems, write a play, a drama or script even a movie.

During those quite time at work or school, while on transit or taking a walk you can accomplish a lot of things.

This are not just the only things to avoid but this are few out of then many, this post might be an eye opener to other habits that you need to change.

Happy new year in advance.

Shedding Off Unwanted People

images

Trees in desert regions shed their leaves in order to grow. It is not an easy process or simple steps, it has to first allow those leaves to dry up first before shedding them. They do that to help prevent lost of water through the process of photosynthesis. Shedding leaves helps to tress to grow and still be standing after many years.

As human we also need to learn from the activities of this trees, we need to learn to shed off some people from our lives. Those you might be likely to shed are family or friends. It is not going to be easy process but it worth it. Just like T D Jakes will say “let them go”.

Letting some people go, is not an indication that they are bad people but they are not more contributing meaning fully into your life and you have to let them go.

As the year is rounding up it time to start taking assessment of the people to shed just like the trees (here in the northern part of Nigeria, the tress have start to shed there leaves).

Struggling To Met Up


Photo Credit: makeawebsitehub

Never before in history have so many people had so much, yet felt so dissatisfied.

Some sociologists point to technology and social media as significant factors in our constant unhappiness. We are the first people in the history of the world who can peek inside the lives of others in real time. We carry tiny media powerhouses in our pockets that let us voyeuristically follow other people around, through all of their check-ins and pictures and video clips.

And if what we’re seeing in the lives of others seems better, more interesting and more fulfilling than our own lives, we feel like we’re missing out. Of course, that feed we’re watching may not necessarily reflect the whole reality. Most people generally put their best foot forward, showing you only the things they want you to see. Photoshopped and cropped, filtered and edited, what we see online makes our own reality seem dingy and dull.

No wonder we often feel so dissatisfied.

No matter how much we have, it can’t compare to what we need the most.

Perhaps no one has understood this better than the Apostle Paul. When Paul was in a prison in Rome, he wrote about his experiences and what he had learned. He basically said, “I’ve gone without the things that I need before. But I’ve also had times when I had more than enough. Life happens in seasons. I’ve had good seasons where everything was going well, and I’ve had hard ones where nothing went my way. But through them all, I’ve learned that there’s one secret to being content: I can do anything and everything—not by my own power—but through Christ. Jesus gives me the strength to handle anything that comes my way.”

You will always battle with discontentment until you let Christ be all that you need. You can chase after everything you’ve ever wanted and get it all. It won’t be enough.

At the end of the day, every day, you’ll still feel empty.

How To Succeed In Life.


Photo Credit: Google

A group of 50 people attended a seminar. Suddenly the speaker stopped and started giving each person a balloon. Each one was asked to write his/her name on it using a marker. Then all the balloons were collected and put in another room.

Now these delegates were let in that room and asked to find the balloon which had their respective names written on within 5 minutes. Everyone was frantically searching for their names, pushing and colliding with each other, and there was utter chaos. At the end of 5 minutes, no one could find their own balloons.

Now each one was asked to randomly collect a balloon and give it to the person whose name was written on it. Within minutes everyone had their own balloons. The speaker began: This is exactly what is happening in our lives.
Everyone is frantically looking for happiness all over the place, not knowing where it is. Our happiness lies in the happiness of other people. Help them Find their happiness and you will get your own happiness too. And this is the purpose of human life… Learn to put a smile on someone’s face, and you will also smile in due course.​

L E S S O N : when you’re making others to succeed in life you’re also a success.

Kill Your Ego

Reflect on these words

1.Your BIRTH came through Others

2.Your NAME was given by Others

  1. You were EDUCATED by Others

4.Your INCOME indirectly comes through Others

  1. Your RESPECT is given by Others
  2. Your first BATH was given by Others

  3. Your last BATH will be done by Others

  4. Your FUNERAL will be organised by Others

  5. You will be taken to your FINAL RESTING PLACE by Others

and

  1. EVERYTHING you owned will be inherited by Others

Hmm….. Why, then, do some of us let our EGO, our CAREER, our MONEY and our BELIEFS undermine the worth of Others in our lives, when we are so dependent on Others.

Isn’t it high time we learn to live in peace and harmony with Others, because all through our lives, at one point or the Other, we will need each Other?

Hope you will share this msg with Others.

Bus or Taxi Driver

images(23).jpg

Photo Credit: Google

I have come to understand that we have two (2) kinds of people in this world;

  1. Taxi drivers
  2. Bus drivers

A Taxi Driver doesn’t have destination. His movement is determined by the people he meets on the way. Even if he’s coming from a particular address and meets a passenger heading the same way, he will make a U-turn and head back there.

A Bus Driver has a route, a destination. If u aren’t heading his way, he won’t pick u. If u mistakenly get on board without checking with his conductor, you will either get off after paying the fare or end up in his destination

Who are you?

Is your life determined by people’s choices or yours?

Are you a bus or taxi driver?

Be focused!

Have a great week

Men Learn To Respect Them (Women)


Photo credit: Google

Every #woman has a past. Some were physically abused. Some had violent parents. Some had pubertal issues. Some had sexual abuse as a child from their own family members. Some had messed up love stories. Some had been forced into sex in the name of love. Some had been drugged. Some were raped. Some had been viciously photographed on bed. Some had been blackmailed by their ex-boyfriend. Some were in an abusive relationship. Some had menstrual problems. Some had a broken family. Some had a divorce. Some had an obesity issue. Some had financial droughts. Some had drug addiction. Some had a few unsuccessful suicide attempts.

If you see a woman, who went through any of these but had already wiped her tears, tied her hair up, masked her sorrows with a divine smile, stood tall and strong, started walking towards her future because she still has some hope left inside her and has not given up on the concept of love that still exists in this world, do not stab her with her past. Do not confront her. Do not slap her with more abuse. Give way for her and walk beside her. May be hold her hands and walk for a while. You’ll know how sweet that soul is and how strong her hopes are! You’ll be amazed at how she carries herself after all her energy has been sucked out.

She need not always be only the woman next door or from a different home. She could be your own friend, your own sister, your own wife, even may be your own mother. Do not judge her by her past. Gift her the peaceful future that she deserves. Hold her hands against the world, which knows only to judge.
Give her the love that she always yearned for.

Search Me

Verse of the day

Search me, O God, and know my heart: try me, and know my thoughts: And see if there be any wicked way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.

Father’s Day 2017

As 2017 father’s celebration comes up, i was struggling with what to post for two reasons
1. Having stayed without a father for the past 10 years (His memory still fresh to me).
2. Not been a father myself.

I was struggling with what to write about fathers, for the above reason. Having studied other fathers i can say this now.

Fatherhood is beyond fathering a child, to be a successful father you have to fully fill the three fold capacity of Prophets, priest and King.

As Prophet, you connect to the Almighty father and receive from him for your family, you see the future for your family, you provide a spiritual covering for them.

As Priest, you teach your family, you pronounce blessings over your family, you protect your family.

As King, you rule the family, provide for the family.

Without fulling operating in the three fold capacity, your no more than a sperm donor.

Fatherhood is a responsibility, it is a commitment which also last a life time.

Happy father’s day 2017

ATTITUDE..
Its Awesome..
Must Read..
Having the right attitude is the fundamental key to success’ look at the analogy bellow and you will be amazed

If A B C D E F G H I J K L M N O P Q R S T U V W X Y Z
Is equal to 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17

Then H+A+R+D+W+O+R+K = 8+1+18+4+23+15+18+11 =98%

K+N+O+W+L+E+D+G+E =

L+O+V+E= 12+15+22+5= 54%

L+U+C+K = 12+21+3+11 = 47%

None of them makes 100% Then what makes 100% ????

Is it Money ? NO !!!

Leadership ? NO !!!

Every problem has a solution, only if we perhaps change our
“ATTITUDE”. It is OUR ATTITUDE towards Life and Work that makes OUR Life 100% Successful..

A+T+T+I+T+U+D+E = 1+20+20+9+20+21+4+5 =100%

Always Use Your Brain

Moishe the Carpenter, returning home with his week’s wages, was accosted by an armed robber on a deserted street.

“Take my money,” said Moishe, “but do me a favour: shoot a bullet through my hat otherwise my wife won’t believe I was robbed.” The robber obliged. He threw Moishe’s hat into the air and put a bullet through it.

“Let’s make it look as if I ran into a gang of robbers,” said Moishe, “otherwise my wife will call me a coward! Please shoot a number of holes through my coat.” So the robber shot a number of holes through the carpenter’s coat.

“And now.”
“Sorry,” interrupted the robber. “No more holes. I’m out of bullets.”

“That’s all I wanted to know!” said Moishe. “Now hand me back my money and some more for the hat and coat that you’ve ruined or I’ll beat you black and blue!”
The robber threw down the money and ran.

The World is a big mirror.

dog in mirro

Once a dog ran into a museum where all the walls, the ceiling, the door and even the floor were made of mirror.

Seeing this the dog froze in surprise in the middle of the hall, a whole pack of dogs surrounded it from all sides, from above and below.

Just in case, the dog bared his teeth, all the reflections responded to it in the same way.

Frightened, the dog frantically barked. The reflections imitated the bark and increased it many times. The dog barked even harder and the echo was keeping up. The dog tossed from one side to another, biting the air – his reflections also tossed around snapping their teeth.

Next day in the morning, the museum security guards found the miserable dog, lifeless and surrounded by a million reflections of lifeless dogs.

There was nobody, who would make any harm to the dog.
The dog died by fighting with his own reflections.
The world doesn’t bring good or evil on its own.

Everything that is happening around us is the reflection of our own thoughts, feelings, wishes and actions.
The World is a big mirror.
Strike a good pose!
Smile from deep within.
Life is beautiful.

Women: Men Now Are Not After Sexiness

couples-in-love.jpeg

Are black women sexy? No doubt! When it comes to sexiness sisters have no equal. But can I be honest with you? I’m actually TIRED of sexy black women. Now hear me out on this, please.

Sexiness don’t mean jack snot. Not in the grand scheme of things. Visually appealing, yes. But I can’t eat sexiness. Sexiness won’t help pay these bills or pay off our student loans. Sexiness won’t qualify for a mortgage, or get people to respect you, sexiness wont allow me set my next big business move.

Sexiness won’t help me raise these kids. Neither will it teach my daughters their true worth and value in this world.

We got way too many ‘Sexy’ sisters out here with nothing else to bring to the table. Sexiness is the totality of their package. And that’s WACK!

Most black men looking for a relationship want a USEFUL woman. Visual appeal alone won’t cut it. Besides: there are so many black women competing to be the sexiest, it’s not even a race worth entering.

Can you cook? Do you clean? Do you have mothering skills Do you love your father? Respect him? Respect other black men in general? Have you divested yourself of prior relationship baggage? Can you hold a conversation about REAL world events? And no: Love and Hip Hop doesn’t count!

Do you have a REAL relationship with a REAL God: or do you follow the fake one many Christians have invented for themselves because he’s more tolerable than the actual Truth?

These are the kind of questions discerning men are asking nowadays.

So if sexiness is all you bring to the table, you can keep it. I’d rather have a woman of pure unadulterated SUBSTANCE. And I’m sure I speak for most conscious-thinking brothers out there on this one.

There’s a new breed of black men out there ladies. And we ain’t settling for second best or taking any shorts. Either come correct or go get with the jacks and harries. That’s all many of you are use to dealing with anyway…

I read this and it inspired me,you too should read!!

I have a friend named Monty Roberts who owns a horse ranch in San Ysidro. He has let me use his house to put on fund-raising events to raise money for youth at risk programs.
The last time I was there he introduced me by saying, “I want to tell you why I let Jack use my horse. It all goes back to a story about a young man who was the son of an itinerant horse trainer who would go from stable to stable, race track to race track, farm to farm and ranch to ranch, training horses. As a result, the boy’s high school career was continually interrupted.
When he was a senior, he was asked to write a paper about what he wanted to be and do when he grew up. “That night he wrote a seven-page paper describing his goal of someday owning a horse ranch. He wrote about his dream in great detail and he even drew a diagram of a 200-acre ranch, showing the location of all the buildings, the stables and the track. Then he drew a detailed floor plan fora 4,000-square-foot house that would sit on a 200-acre dream ranch.
He put a great deal of his heart into the project and the next day he handed it in to his teacher. Two days later he received his paper back. On the front page was a large red F with a note that read, See me after class.’ “The boy with the dream went to see the teacher after class and asked, <strong>Why did I receive an F?’ “The teacher said, <strong>This is an unrealistic dream for a young boy like you. You have no money. You come from an itinerant family. You have no resource</strong>'s.
Owning a horse ranch requires a lot of money. You have to buy the land. You have to pay for the original breeding stock and later you’ll have to pay large stud fees. There’s no way you could ever do it.’ Then the teacher added,
If you will rewrite this paper with a more realistic goal, I will reconsider your grade.’
“The boy went home and thought about it long and hard. He asked his father what he should do. His father said, `Look, son, you have to make up your own mind on this. However, I think it is a very important decision for you.
“Finally, after sitting with it for a week, the boy turned in the same paper, making no changes at all. He stated, “You can keep the F and I’ll keep my dream.”
Monty then turned to the assembled group and said, “I tell you this story because you are sitting in my 4,000-square-foot house in the middle of my 200-acre horse ranch. I still have that school paper framed over the fireplace.” He added, “The best part of the story is that two summers ago that same schoolteacher brought 30 kids to camp out on my ranch for a week.” When the teacher was leaving, he said, “Look, Monty, I can tell you this now. When I was your teacher, I was something of a dream stealer. During those years I stole a lot of kids’ dreams. Fortunately you had enough gumption not to give up on yours.” “Don’t let anyone steal your dreams. Follow your heart, no matter what.”

ON KNOWLEDGE

A learned and well known personality, once replied to a group of ten learned men who said, *’We seek your permission for our asking a question to you.’

He replied, ‘You are at perfect liberty.’

They said, ‘Of knowledge and wealth, which is better and why?. Please give a separate answer to each. He, answered in ten parts:

  1. Knowledge is the legacy of the Prophets; wealth is the inheritance of the Pharaohs. Therefore, knowledge is better than wealth.
  2. You are to guard your wealth but knowledge guards you. Therefore, knowledge is better.

  3. A man of wealth has many enemies, while a man of knowledge has many friends. Hence, knowledge is better.

  4. Knowledge is better because it increases with distribution, while wealth decreases by that act.

  5. Knowledge is better because a learned man is apt to be generous while a wealthy person is apt to be miserly.

  6. Knowledge is better because it cannot be stolen while wealth can be stolen.

  7. Knowledge is better because time cannot harm knowledge but wealth rusts in course of time and wears away.

  8. Knowledge is better because it is boundless while wealth is limited and you can keep account of it.

  9. Knowledge is better because it illuminates the mind while wealth is apt to blacken it.

  10. Knowledge is better because knowledge induced the humanity in our Prophet to say to GOD ‘we worship thee as we are your servants,’ while wealth engendered in Pharaoh and Nimrod the vanity which made them claim god-head.

Seek knowledge, peace and health will follow.

“So brothers and sisters , if you feel this information is of value and benefit to you, you have a moral obligation to share the knowledge with others.”

Four Big Mistakes Women Make In Relationships

I read this some years ago and i feel its time i share it with others to help them fix issues of relationship.

Mistake #1: Focusing On Events, Not Feelings

We women are taught to believe that events, and the time we “put in,” MEAN SOMETHING to a man. If he’s introduced us to his family or friends at work we’re on cloud nine. We think of these as “milestones” moving us closer to commitment and marriage. And we couldn’t be more wrong.

Time means NOTHING to a man. Sometimes, being in a comfortable HOLDING PATTERN with us is EXACTLY what he has in mind! They spend time with us, but then they go and commit to someone else.

Unless we can get into our man’s heart, and let him into ours to create a deep emotional bond, we DOOM ourselves to a superficial level that will never lead to a lifelong commitment.

Mistake #2: Thinking Exclusive = Committed

…women focus on getting a man to be exclusive – but this is only a temporary state. Instead, you need to focus on getting him committed…
How many of you have been comfortable in a relationship, only to have the man you are with meet someone else, or tell you he’s “found someone who really gets me.” How can it be that a man who is exclusive with you can “fall for” someone else so easily? It’s because he was not committed to you.

Oftentimes, women focus on getting a man to be exclusive – but this is only a temporary state. Instead, you need to focus on getting him committed to you. When that happens, he’ll be exclusive AND won’t “fall for” another woman ever again!

Mistake #3: Talking About Your Relationship, Not Creating It

Often when women feel their man becoming distant, they decide to TALK to him about it. To ask how he’s feeling, why he’s acting this way, or where the relationship is going.

When you talk to a man about your relationship, you have the OPPOSITE effect on him than you intend. Though we often hear men say how much they hate how “emotional” women are – this is exactly the part they CRAVE. They are so stuck in their brains, so much of the time, that if we’re stuck in ours, they can’t connect to us.

Every time we TALK about the relationship, it feels to him like a laundry list of to do items instead of INSPIRING a man to want to be with us.

Mistake #4: You Panic… He Leaves

Because we know that “Lifelong-Commitment” is a frightening thing to a man, we’re often afraid to say or do anything that might scare him more.

It’s easy to get paralyzed by fear and anger and stop being ourselves. We stop being the fun, relaxed women who he originally fell for who made him great before.

You Don’t Need Approval From Social Media?

Every day I log online into my social media accounts I see people desperately trying get peoples approval for their lives, they want their friends and family to approve their choice of clothing, their choice of food, their choice of friends etc.
So the struggle to dress like other, to get what others have, to look and be like another has been the fuel behind many of the social problems affecting our youth, low self-esteem has now become a common thing among our youths. Most of our youth feel inadequate because of lack of like or comments on their post on social media.
We are all unique in out different ways, our differences should be our strength and not source of weakness. Don’t let the pictures/post posted by your friends to drive you to a point of mental breakdown just to get what they have or be like them.
There is power in being unique, there is strength in self-realization, dear friends do no wait for other to approve how beautiful you look, how gorgeous you are, how creative or perfect you are.
Who you are and who you can be is not dependent on what others say or think but on what you made yourself to be. Be yourself and enjoy the power of self-realization.

Steps to Speed Up Your Computer’s Performance

With constant usage over time system performance tends to slow down.
Here are few steps to speed up the system performance.
Steps to Speed Up Your Computer’s Performance

1. Make Sure Your Hardware is Sufficient
Above and beyond everything you can do with software to optimize the function of your computer, making sure you have the proper hardware to support Windows is critical.

2. Clean Your Desktop
Is your Windows Desktop dotted with files? Have you noticed that your computer has been running slower and slower? Do you see the hard drive light often flashing while you wait for the computer to respond to an action? There are steps you can take to fix it. Read this article.

3. Scan Your Windows System for Errors
An operating system is a collection of files that perform different functions. It is possible, over time, that one or more of these system files has changed or become corrupted.
If this happens, the speed of your system may decrease. By using a utility called “System File Checking”, it will inspect these files and correct any problem it finds.

4. Scan for Viruses, Spyware and Adware
Every Windows computer is vulnerable to viruses. Viruses are nasty little programs that cause both major and minor problems for users.
Spyware and Adware are programs created by companies to find out more information about customers, so they can better market products to them. Usually these programs are not created for malicious purposes. Spyware and Adware can load into computer memory and slow it down.
Periodically scanning and removal of Viruses, Spyware and Adware is a great way to improve computer performance.

5. Uninstall Unused Programs
Over time, you may have accumulated programs on your computer that you do not use. When a program is installed, it creates connections between the program and the operating system. Even if you don’t use these programs, they can slow down your system. If you have the original program’s installation disk or file, removing programs will free up space on your computer and may speed up your system’s performance.

6. Adjust Visual Effects for Better Performance
Windows provides a number of interesting visual effects including animated windows and fading menus. If you do not have enough operating memory (see above number 1), these effects can slow down your computer. Adjusting or reducing visual effects can make a difference.

7. Don’t Automatically Start Programs
Programs use operating memory (RAM, also called system resources). Unless you always use these programs, you can keep them from loading at Windows startup and speed both the booting of your computer and its performance.

8. Defragment Your Hard Drive (After you have tried everything else)
The more information and programs you have on your computer, the more it is likely that Windows has placed parts of the same file in different locations on your hard drive. It may do this for hundreds of files and programs, depending on how much space is available. Defragmenting the hard drive places all information for each file in one place. The result can be a faster computer experience.

9. Reinstall the Operating System and Programs
If you have done all the above steps and your computer does not become more responsive, you might consider reinstalling the operating system and programs. This is a scorched earth option – basically you backup all your data and user settings, wipe your hard drive clean and re-install the operating system with your original disks. Next, install all your favorite programs and restore all your data and user settings.

Secret Of A Happy Home

There were two houses standing next to each other. In one of them resided a very unhappy family. The spouses yelled at each other, they fought and quarreled all the time. The other was a place of happiness and calm.

During one of the fights a wife asked her husband:

“Did you ever hear them quarrel or yell over at that house? No!

So, go there and see what they do to avoid it!”

The husband stood at the window of his neighbors and watched. There they were busy doing their own thing. The wife was in the kitchen cooking, and the man sat at the table writing. The phone rang, and the man jumped up and headed to the hallway to get it.

On his way he bumped into a vase, it fell and broke. He got down to his knees and started picking up the pieces. The wife ran into the room from the kitchen. She also kneeled down and started helping her husband to pick them up.

The man said to his wife:

“I am so sorry. I rushed to get the phone and bumped into the vase. It fell and got broken.”

The wife replied:

“No, honey, it is my fault. I put it there on the way. That’s why you bumped into it.”
They kissed, and that was over. Both got back to what they were doing.

The man who watched them returned to his wife. She wanted to know what the secret of their happiness was.

What he said was fantastic:

“I know it now. In their family they both are guilty and in our family both of us are always right!”

That’s the secret of family happiness!

Food for thought.

The “trick” isn’t in not wanting to take responsibility, but rather in not claiming right.

There are times you need to forfeit your right to win your peace: depends on which you cherish most.

This recipe is applicable, not only in the home, but also at work and in all relationships.

Pls don’t just read it. share it. You never can tell how many people this post will bless.

Fake news and information has been the order of the day, of recent there has been a high rise in the number of fake news in circulation. Sadly must of this fake new are been reported by licence media outfits.

Fake news is a tool use in diving the masses and creating confusion and also the cover up for the truth. Many fake news are misdirection given to the masses in order to hid vital happenings, today fake news are been initiated by government to keep the masses in the dark.

What is the way out of this is for the masses to demand the truth and not facts, the truth of the matter is what will finally eradicate fake news. All facts are not truth but all truth are facts and truth.

We must break away from trusting statement like this “from reliable source” “who ask to be anonymous” when the a news or information have no real backing then it’s not true.

People who speak the truth are not afraid so they don’t stay anonymous, most times those anonymous individuals are a bad intention and seeking to ruin someone’s live or reputation.

I challenge all who want to speak to back the words with truth and not hid behind the mask of anonymous reliable source for evil intention.

You shall know the truth and the truth shall set you free “Jesus Christ”

Thank you.

Change Looking At the #10yearchallenge

#10yearchallenge has been viral over the week, I also post a picture from 10 ago and the transformation was just awesome.

Today a friend who bought my type of phone Tecno Pouvor LA7

photo Credit: techviews.com.ng

made me realize that change is constant and one must change (improvement).

About five years ago or more I said I can never use a Tecno phone because I was enjoying my Blackberry phones, I was one (still am) of the biggest fan of Blackberry I have used almost 7 different blackberry phones.

Photo credit: gsmarena.com

I have to switch from blackberry to tecno now because of change.

I made a video of my tecno phone here is the link. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=ElX8KhrS_-Q

The change in the technology world over the last five years was remarkable, Blackberry then was ahead and Tecno was behind but now five years letter, Tecno have embraced the changing trend in the technological and Social Media world while Blackberry has not.

So the big question is what kind of change did you go through in the last 10 years?

It is not late you too can take a bold step towards change and being a better you.

Thank you.
