How To Discover Your Purpose In Life And Fulfill It.

Every human born into this life has a purpose to fulfill. Right from the day of your conception in the womb to when you came out, there’s a God’s divine purpose you were destined to accomplish. The holy book of Jeremaiah 1:5 confirms this. There’s no human that is without a purpose to fulfill in life, in Genesis, in the beginning of creation God gave a mandate to man, be fruitful, multiply and replenish the earth. This mandate isn’t about the reproduction of human beings, it cuts across all facets of human endeavours. Each and everyone of us must be able to use our God given ability to get something done and add value to creation, that is the express command from God, who is the master of creation, and this is why we are different from animals and God made human beings to be higher animals. He gave us the ability to think, to be creative and accomplish great task in life. Unfortunately, a lot of people lived through life and died without realizing the purpose for which they were created, and lot more people are inadvertently presently living through life without any hope of discovering their real purpose of creation and use it to add value life. However, some people had also negatively used their God-given ability to make negative impacts in the world, which has resulted in destruction of lives and property, rather than building and adding value to life. They made impact in the world, but it was in the negative direction, and it has no value on the lives of other human. One thing we must understand as human being is that, this life is like a market place, where we all come to buy, and after buying we retire back to our individual homes, to give way for others to come and buy. Hence, the more we are able to get deals that favours us and also favours the other person and the society at large, the better and happier we become. One significant fact is that we must all leave the market when it is time, and at different times just as certainly we must leave the world one day, hence you must make good use of the little time you have here, so you’ll feel fulfilled and happy. But the very expedient question to ask yourself is, what would i be remembered for when i live this world? It is pertinent you ask yourself this important question in order to know if you’ve actually been wasting your time here on earth. There are 3 basic way of discovering your purpose in life. First and most important is, recognizing God, who is the master of all creation. He is the one that has put that ability in you, to accomplish great things. He alone knows the degree of what he has put inside you and the capacity to which you can function. Manufacturers knows exactly what their products can do, hence when they need that product to accomplish a particular function, they just call it up. God is the greatest manufacturer, he knows exactly what you can do because he put that ability, capacity and potential to accomplish a great task and fulfill his purpose on earth, so turn to him and ask him to reveal that purpose to you. He can speak directly to you through dreams to reveal his mind to you, therefore, if you have a particular good dream that is always re-occuring, take it very seriously, because there’s something or a message that’s being passed across to you through your sub-conscious. Get the message properly, and begin to act on it. God can also use men to convey his message to you to bring out that thing he has deposited in your and use it to fulfill your purpose. Therefore, you must be discerning and responsive enough to discover what is the will of God for your life. The second way is, discovering your passion in life. What is your passion or drive? What is that thing you’re always passionate about or interested in, that you cannot do without. You always feel satisfied, fulfilled and easily interested in when it is being discussed. Do you enjoy talking politics, money, business, leadership, entrepreneurship, music, education, sports, law, winning souls for christ or you like practical things. Anything you are passionate about is a signal that that’s where fulfulling your purpose will emerge. Don’t wish away your passions, put them to work and be consistent with them. The last point is, allowing your friends, colleagues, mates or any group you often spend quality time with, run a temperament test on you. Tell them to analyze you strength and weaknesses and discover which areas lies your strength, then begin to use your strengths to decipher your purpose in life. Our purpose in life is always fulfilled on the basis of our strength. Wherein lies our strength, therein lies our purpose!

Donald Trump Set To Deport or Jail Three Million Illegal Migrants.

d-trump-speech_001Donald TrumpThe United States of America president-elect, Mr. Donald J. Trump is leaving no stone unturned in making good his campaign promise. The United States business mogul during his presidential election campaign for the U.S White House race has consistently frowned at the rate of illegal migrants into the United States, and vowed to deport them if he becomes the president. His statement attracted a very wide range of condemnation across the world. Some called him a racist, others said he is xenophobic, and he lacks the temperament to lead a country as the United States of America. However, this did not deter the americans, particularly majority of the white american voters who believe his idealogy and bought into his philosophy from voting for him, and he eventually emerged the winner of the election with those campaign promises. Although, Donald Trump won the keenly contested election with the electoral college votes on the platform of the republican party, also known as the “conservatives” in the United States, against his strongest rival, Mrs. Hilary Clinton, who contested on the platform of the democratic party, which are also known as the “liberals” in the U.S election. Hence, Mr. Trump received a lot of bashing and so many knocks from both the liberals and their ardent supporters all over the world for being undemocratic with his comments but he shocked the whole world by still emerging the winner with that campaign promise a lot of people considered as racist comment. One may rightly say, may be Mr. Trump spoke the mind of majority of americans by telling them what they want to hear, hence his emergence as the 45th president-elect of America. Now, for those who thinks Mr. Donald Trump may renege on his campaign promises or tone down his comments on deporting illegal migrants, having won the election should better start getting ready to leave the United States of America because the president-elect is not going back on his words, and he’s leaving no stone unturned to make real his threats. The U.S business mogul and president-elect had on monday, November 14, 2016 repeated it that he will deport or jail three million illegal migrants when he’s sworn-in on 20th January, 2017. Of this 3million illegal migrants, africans are more, and particularly nigerians, which he specifically mentioned. I believe it is time for african leaders to brace up and offer good governance to its citizenry. Love Donald Trump or loathe him, we all can attest to the fact that Africa is backward in terms of development, and who underdeveloped it, its the leaders, because of their laziness and greed. When the leaders steal money, they run to America and other countries to bank or invest it, consequently improving the economy of those countries and leaving theirs impoverished. Hence, this makes the citizens become so desperate in search of some greener pastures in other countries either by hook or by crook. I sincerely believe that they should all come back and work to develop their own country, so that Africa, and particularly Nigeria will be as developed as those other countries they run to.

Update: Alleged Masterminder of Leaked Miss Anambra Lesbian Sextape Revealed.

uchemiss-anambra Uche Nworah, the man on the right side of the picture above is allegedly being rumoured to be behind the leaked lesbian sextape of the beauty queen, miss Anambra known as Chidinma Okeke. Uche Nworah, who is also the chairman of Anambra Broadcasting Service (ABS) in Anambra state, is reported to have entered into agreement with the erstwhile beauty queen prior to her nomination. Report has it that Chidinma Okeke in her desperation to be crowned miss Anambra agreed to pay a certain amount of money, about two million naira to Uche Nworah throughout the one year duration of her being on the throne as Anambra beauty queen. Having entered the agreement, she kept to it, and had been paying the money in tranches since 2015, and the sum of one million eight hundred thousand naira was reported to have been paid in total. When she was recently approached by Mr. Uche Nworah towards the end of her tenure, to bring the balance of two hundred thousand naira, she refused, and decided to disdain the organizers of the event, because according to her, she’s now parleying with more influential people in the industry. This attitude did not go down well with Mr. Uche Nworah and other organizers who were part of the agreement, hence they decided to get back at her by releasing her first lesbian sex video with her face not showing in the video. They did this believing that she will retrace her steps and come back to reconcile with them. But the beauty queen rather than do that, went ahead to deny and disclaim the video, claiming she’s not the one in the video. This further prompted Mr. Uche Nworah to release the second video which clearly shows her face. Probably, Miss Anambra may have forgotten or not aware that her blackmailers still has her lesbian sextape video, and could use it to blackmail her if she reneges on the their agreement. What do you think?

Does Professor Wole Soyinka Have An Integrity Problem?

wole-soyinka Nigeria’s nobel laureate, Professor Wole Soyinka may have gotten himself into trouble, as the controversy sorrounding his reckless statements prior to the November 8th 2016 United States presidential election seems to be generating a lot of reactions from nigerians and people all over the world. The nobel laureate winner had vowed that he will lacerate his United States green card if peradventure Donald Trump wins the presidential election. This statement did not go down well with so many nigerians, especially supporters of the U.S business mogul and now the president elect. A lot of people were outraged because such reckless statement was unbecoming of a man of the status of Professor Wole Soyinka, who is a nobel prize winner in Literature. On the 9th of November 2016, the republican candidate, Mr. Donald Trump was declared winner of the keenly contested election having polled the highest number of electoral college votes. Hence, the media and those who were enraged by the comment of the nobel laureate were expecting him to make do his vow, when he was confronted with his comment he disappointed his admirers and the whole world by reneging on his promise, and said he’ll splitter his green passport and not his U.S green card if Donald Trump is sworn-in on the 20th of January 2017. What do you make of this? Does Prof. Wole Soyinka have integrity problem?

Deployment of Warships And Military To Niger Delta.

militantswarship The federal government through the nigerian navy has deployed four warships and 3,400 military personels to the oil rich Niger Delta region of Nigeria. According to a statement issued by the eastern naval officer commanding in Onne, Rivers state, the warships are meant to combat sea piracy, crude oil theft, pipeline vandalisation by Niger Delta militants and maritime security in Nigeria, particularly in the Niger Delta region. This latest action of federal government is coming a day after a meeting of the leaders and elders of Niger Delta with president Muhammadu Buhari, to ressolve the agitations in the oil rich region. The leaders presented a 16 key demands to the federal government, which includes relocation of the administrative headquaters of the IOC’s to the Niger Delta region, and allocation of oil blocs to the indigens of the region. However, one of the militant groups, the Niger Delta Greenland Justice Mandate(NDGJM) under the Niger Delta Avengers (NDA) has dissociated itself from the meeting, saying the leaders are serving their selfish interest, and not representing them. This consequently led to the blowing up of another forcados crude export line in Batan community in Delta state Nigeria, which the NDGJM had claimed responsibility. The federal government through the nigerian navy responded immediately in deploying 4 warships and 3,400 military men to the oil rich region. The warships are: Nigeria Navy Ship(NNS) Okpabana, NNS Ologbo, NNS Burutu, NNS Sagbama and a naval August helicopter. The latest exercise by the military in the Niger Delta is codenamed “Exercise Sharkbite”. Will this latest action of the federal government quell the agitations in the oil rich region or will it worsen it? Only time will tell. Lets keep our fingers crossed and watch what happens in the days ahead.

Severe Acute Malnutrition Ravaging IDP’s Camp In Nigeria.

idp-boko-haram-nigeriasevere-acute-malnutrition It is absolutely disheartning that inspite of the millions of cash and food items donated by individuals, local and international donor agencies, a lot of internally displaced persons in IDP’s camps in Bokoharam ravaged communities in North-East, Nigeria are still suffering from severe acute malnutrition. This situation had consequently led to the death of many mal-nourished children and the elderly. It is very apalling the precarious situation we find ourselves. When will the black man, particularly nigerians change and stop being greedy? When will we begin to have value for human lives? The truth is that, it is in a black man’s nature to be greedy and have less value for human life. Some of the people posted to oversee things in the IDP’s camps divert the millions of cash and food items meant to take care of the displaced persons for their own family and personal use, leaving the helpless people to die of malnutrition and most times, starvation. ‘GREED’ in indeed. I believe the federal government should investigate what is going on in the internally displaced persons camps, and take full responsibility. International observers, donor agencies and civil societies should take over and monitor every activity in IDP camps in north-east, Nigeria in order to forestall further deaths of innocent children and elderly due to severe acute malnutrition.

2015 Miss Anambra Lesbian Sex Tape: Much Ado About Nothing?

The 2015 beauty queen in Anambra state, otherwise known as “Miss Anambra” has been in the news for the past weeks, not for the right reasons, but for the wrong reasons, especially for those of us in this part of the world. Anambra is one of the 36 states located in south-eastern Nigeria. The state had been relatively quiet and not so much has been heard about it both locally and internationally, until the recent sextape video showing the winner of the Miss Anambra beauty pageant, Miss Chidinma Okeke involved in a lesbian sex scandal with her PA and also a beauty queen of the face of democracy in Anambra, known as, Miss Adaobi Nzekwe. The video had gone viral on the internet and its streaming on social media. The question i want to ask is, how will this portray the organizers of these events in Nigeria? And how will these act affect the young and upcoming children who may want to take part in these social events? What lesson can they learn from it? Or is there much ado about nothing? These are some of the questions that needs to be answered, considering the fact that Nigeria and some African countries has zero telorance for such immoral acts. Infact, Nigeria has a law that stipulates 14 years jail term for anyone caught in gay or lesbian acts. Although, the organizers of these events has come out to condemn the act, and dissociated themselves from it. But what can they do more? Can they even do anything to stop this things from happening? Knowing that some of these lesbian acts are done before the crowning of the beauty queen, like the case of Chidinma Okeke. I think the only thing they can do, is to properly screen the winners before crowning them. Now, what lessons can the younger children learn from these? The lessons we must all learn from these, not only the children but also adults, is that we should be careful of what we do today, because those things could actually work against us in future. Now, back to our topical question. Is there a much ado about nothing in this particular lesbian sextape of Miss Anambra? chiWhy is there so much noise about this Miss Anambra sextape? Why are we even making a mountain out of a mole hill? Shouldn’t we legalize gay marriage and defend gay rights? I know a lot of people, particular from some african countries like Nigeria, who are reading this post may probably be offended with my insinuations, because of culture and religion. But wait a minute, can culture and religion really prevent these things from happening? I don’t think culture and religion can forestall the occurence of homosexuality in our society. Culture is dynamic, and religion is personal, hence so many young people are moving away from those old cultural and religious beliefs and practices. And are gradually becoming aware of the fact that we live in a secular society where people are free to choose, do, believe and practice whatever they want to. Hence, they secretly indulge in and practice some of these acts. Making laws to prevent homo-sexuality may be a good way to go, but is the law omni-present? Or can the law get to the secret places where these acts are being perpetrated, and catch up with the culprits? Definitely not, these acts are done in secret where no one will know about it. The fact that the case of Miss Anambra became public does not mean that, homosexuality does not happen everyday in our homes. I’m not trying to justify these immoral act, i condemn it in totality, but it is hightime we stop living in denial because over 50% of the population of young people between ages 16-25 are into homosexuality and some adults practice it and even encourage and lure younger people into it. Some young girls ignorantly indulge in lesbianism through friends and peer-pressures. While others do it because of money from either older ladies or older men who are ready to pay them to do it. Like the case of Miss Anambra, reports have it that she was lured into the lesbian act for financial gains when she was still a student in Nnamdi Azikiwe University, but did not know that it will one day be made public. But the reason her’s has been so much in the news is because she’s a beauty queen and her black-mailers won’t stop at nothing to make her pay, probably because she’s no longer co-operative. I strongly believe there’s no law, culture or religion that will be strong enough to curb or wipe out homosexuality in our society. The only remedy is values, individual or personal values. What we attach so much values to as human beings is very important. Your decision as an individual never to indulge in homosexuality or any other immoral sexual practices is what matters. Because if you see homosexuality as a very degrading immoral act and unnatural for humans to have a sexual relationship with someone of same sex, you’ll definitely not indulge in it. THANKS.

U.S Presidential Election: The Challenge Before The Electorates.

gty_trump_clinton_jef_150617_16x9_992 I have been consitently following the goings-on in the upcoming November 8, 2016 United States presidential election. I have watched with so much admiration the campaigns of the two political parties, the democratic and the republican party. I have also listened and watched the debates between the main contenders of the election. Eventhough, the debates most times was mared with a lot of personal attacks, verbal attacks and campaigns of calumny. But in all, i must say the processes leading to the election has been very interesting, with all the accusations and counter-accusations. However, having listened to and watched the two main contenders in the imminent election, the major challenge before the american electorates or voters, is being able to make their minds on whom to vote for. Some might be at a crossroad about whom to cast their vote for, while others will remain undecided and neutral because they are yet to see their ideal candidate. Looking at the physical apperance of both Hilary Clinton of the democratic party and Donald Trump of the republican party, and how they’ve been able to articulate their points and present their manifestos to the electorates, we can all agree on the face value, without any iota of doubt that both of them are eminently qualified to occupy the whitehouse. However, we might been making a big mistake hinging our decisions to vote only on their campaign promises and manifestos alone, without due consideration for the temperament of both candidates, to determine who among them have the character and capacity to deliver on those promises and tackle the prevailing challenges confronting the american citizens. Obviously, both candidates have good manifestos and wonderful promises, but it does not suffice to determine who will make a better leader and equal to the task of surmounting the present real challenges facing the most powerful nation in the world. Temperament is one factor that can be used to determine who’ll make a better leader or more suited for a particular situation a people finds themselves in. Temperament is the sumtotal of everything we’re made of. It is responsible for all our actions and inactions. It controls the way we eat, sleep, drive, what we think about other people, how we relate with people, how we do business, our intelligence, even how we lead others when we are entrusted with any leadership position. Virtually everything we do in life, and traits we exhibit can be traced to our temperament. Hence, the temperament of both Donald and Hilary are to be considered in deciding who among them occupies the white house, especially when both are locked in a two-horse race. We must determine who among them has the better temperament that’s required to tackle the present challenges confronting the U.S and the world at large. Through out the old time, God has always chosen leaders to accomplish a specific purpose. When he wanted the children of Israel to be delivered from captivity in Egypt, he choose Moses, who’s a stammerer and not even the bravest of men. He could have chosen someone else, because he saw in Moses the potential of a deliverer who does not like to see people suffer. When he wanted to destroy Nebuchadnezzar, he choose an uncompromising Daniel, God choose Joseph to be the Prime minister in Egypt to end the famine in Israel. All through ages, God has always chosen leaders for a specific purpose. Why most countries are in turmoil today, is because they’re yet to choose the right leader that can resolve a particular challenge facing them at that moment. There are no bad leaders, all leaders are good, but there are bad times. Now, lets go back to our topic. I have been watching and following both Hilary and Trump, and i can unequivocally decipher their temperament to determine who is a more qualified candidate. Although, Hilary is very intelligent and analytical, but she’s very diplomatic, cunning, moody. Gets angry when things does not go her way, and can be hurtful with words. She’s a combination of melancholy and choleric temperament. Hence, i call her “melchlor”. She’ll do very well in maintaining status quo, in terms of employent, trade and economy. But not in foreign policy, fighting terrorism and giving America a strong voice in the world. Trump on the otherhand, has charisma, he’s decisive, vocal and full of activity, such people can initiate and accomplish any new project they set out to accomplish. He’s a ‘chlorsan” a combination of choleric & sanguine temperament. He’ll do extremely well in giving America a strong voice, fighting terrorism, foreign policy because of his charismatic nature and probably in trade and economy as a successful business man. I believe with these short insight, you can make your mind.

Nepal used to be a very peaceful and quiet country, until this major earthquake struck her on 25th April, 2015 causing untold pains and agony to the citizens of this serene country.

UK’s Election And The Future of EU.

David Cameron has been re-elected as the United Kingdom Prime minister under the platform of the conservative party, in what seems to be a fierce electoral contest between the Conservatives and Labour. But all seems not to be going on well in the UK government, and between the two foremost political parties. As the emergence of the conservative David Cameron was greeted with wide protests and riots, which is also threatning a major shake-up in the European Union. david-cameron the coming days of the conservatives at the helm of affairs in UK’s government will definitely determine the future of EU.

Same-Sex Marriage: What A Failed Generation!

The legalization of same-sex or gay marriage in 38 states of the United States and some European countries is a depiction of the fact that we have a failed and barbaric generation. Same-sex marriage dates back to the generation of Sodom and Gomorrah. Then, it was called ‘Sodomy’ and those involved in such immoral acts were called sodomites. Their unwholesome, ignoble and immoral acts infuriated God, that he had to destroy that generation with fire. Presently, this generation has immorally degenerated to the days of Sodom and Gomorrah. Which makes it very barbaric. Legalizing same-sex marriage is a symbol of total depraivity of man, because it negates the natural principles of on which the world was created, and a total alienation from the original plan of God for man. GayWhat legacies are we really leaving behind for our future generation? What are we really teaching our kids, that same-sex marriage is good, and there’s nothing wrong about it? I think we’ve descended so low, even below the level of animals. I strongly believe that this generation has failed, if we really cannot build a good and lasting legacies for the future generation.

A Good Leader And A Great Leader: What Makes The Difference?

businesswoman drawing plan of Leadership. The problem of leadership has been a major challenge confronting the entire world, especially the third world countries. The world seems to be in want of quality leaders who can profer solutions and tackle its enormous challenges. It seems all we’ve got right now are leaders who cannot see beyond their nose, leaders who aren’t proactive in their actions and leadership style, leaders who only live in the present without taking concrete steps to preserve and safeguard the future, and leaders who has ran out of ideas of what it takes to overcome the world’s global challenges of terrorism, climate change and global warming. I have taken time to observe two major kinds of leaders: The good leader, and the great leader. There’s a very big difference between both. A good leader is a great manager, he manages very well and thrives on existing structures, standards and legacies, but can hardly create those structures or create a new path and set new standards for others to follow. Great leaders thrives on creativity, vision, they are driven by the passion to make positive impacts and leave a lasting legacy in the minds of their followers. They create new pathways for others to follow, they seek to find solutions to every problem, they’re problem solvers. The hallmark of a great leader is self-sacrifice. The world presently seems to have more of good or ordinary leaders than great or extra-ordinary leaders.

How Introverts Can Overcome Their Low Self-Esteem.

51hVcN9HuAL._SY300_. The World is blessed or endowed with two main categories of persons, which are the: “introverts and extroverts”. And it has benefited immensely from the great qualities and potentials of these two. The introverts as well as the extroverts possesses some specific qualities, characteristics and potentials that are very distinct from each other, and which if adequately exploited will undoubtedly help to add more value to life. Both the introverts and extroverts can’t do without each other, as they both complement each other in any area of life. Any religious organization, industry, Business organization, community and government parastatals cannot do without the services of both the introverts and extroverts in their quest to achieve success. The qualities and great potentials of these two categories of persons must be properly harnessed, combined and blended together in other to achieve maximum success. If these two are assigned roles that conforms to their specific qualities and characteristics, great will be the result. Now, who is an “introvert”? And who is an “extrovert”. For the purpose of this particular post, i’m going to focus mainly on the introverts and talk about their qualities, characteristics, their major weakness and how they can overcome it. In my subsequent post, i will discuss the extroverts in details. Please comeback to read the full version of this post. The introverts, like their name implies, likes everything internal to them. They spend more time with themselves than with the outside world. These categories of people enjoys the gregarious lifestyle and likes the indoor routines. You hardly see them outside except on purpose or only when they’ve got something very important to accomplish. They do not like being in company of the crowd and believes in keeping quiet when you’ve got nothing reasonable to say. However, these categories of people are the most gifted and well-endowed in the world. They are extremely intelligent and analytical by nature. They ‘ve got the ability to analytically visualize the end of anything from the beginning. The introverts are highly intelligent people and are very good in whatever they do, and they also excel in what they’ve determined to do, especially if it conforms to their basic qualities and characteristics. But one major weakness the introverts are often confronted with is, Low Self-Esteem or poor perception of themselves. It is absolutely unimaginable that people who are so much gifted, well-endowed and have high intelligence could still battle with low self-esteem or even lack of self-esteem. This post will help you, if you’re an introvert, to discover the major causes of your low self-esteem and how to overcome it. overcome-low-self-esteem. Quiet a number of reasons are responsible for the low self-esteem of the introverts. One thing you ought to understand is that self-esteem starts from the inside and becomes visible outside. So, if you’re battling with low self-esteem, that means you lack inward confidence. One major reason introverts have low self-esteem is because they’re “perfectionist”. An introvert wants everything he does to be 100 percent right. Anything short of 100 percent, is not acceptable to them, and it makes them feel under-achieved, which breeds in them a wrong perception that others could have done better. This also makes them place a very high standards on themselves that will be very difficult to keep. An introvert is never satisfied despite what he’s accomplished in life, they still try to compare themselves with others, and this unnecessary comparisons gives rise to a feeling of inferiority. The introvert ought understand that nobody is perfect and nothing made by man can be 100percent perfect. Therefore, they should always be happy and compliment their effort. Another reason is that an introvert always show too much concern about what people say, think or feel about them. They derive joy in the praises of people, which they do not always get, they always want to appear faultless as they can, which is unrealizable. They like to consider and prefer others above themselves, which makes them want to please everybody at their own expense. Outwardly, they may appear to be inconsiderate, but inwardly, they’re very considerate. The introverts should realize that they can’t satisfy or please everybody. Introverts are very nice and gentle people, but they’ve got to deal with low self-esteem.

How To Study Effectively And Retain What You’ve Studied In Your Memory For A Longer Time.

Reading and understanding. A lot of medical experts, scientists, psychologists and guidance and counsellors had recommended various food nutrients and supplements, good advice, tips and counsels on how to boost your memory and have longer retentive memory. Perhaps, you’ve heeded all their recommendations, tips, advice and counsels, but to no avail and you still find it very difficult to recollect even the simplest things you read a while ago.Short memories or being unable to retain for a long time what you’ve read is the challenge most students face and responsible for being unable to excel in their exam.This post is based on my own personal experience and findings on the best way to study and still retain what you’ve studied for a very long time. There’s no denying the fact that the advice,counsel and tips are not good enough,or that the food nutrients and supplements recommended are not efficient enough especially if right adhered to. For instance, medical experts has asserted that iodine is very effective for developing and improving the memory. So, children should be given meals containing iodine from childhood to help their memory develop, and should be exposed to books with pictures at an early stage in other to have a very strong memory in their adulthood. Adults are also encouraged to eat meals and fruits containing iodine, and excercise regularly in other to keep their brain and memory very active. All these recommendations and tips can help, but i feel its better to share from experience. Which is why i hold a firm belief that the ability to study and be able to retain in your memory for a very long time what you’ve studied is more of your attitude, approach and the study method you adopt. A lot of people believe that they’ve got a short memory and use it as an excuse for being unable to recollect what they’ve spent time to study, NO! Nobody is created with a short memory, it absolutely depends on how you develop, exercise and expose your brain and mind. The power of the brain and mind is very essential in having a longer retentive memory. If your brain and mind are very active, you’ll definitely have a longer retentive memory. The brain is meant for capturing things, calculating and understanding. While the mind is for analyzing and retaining what the brain has captured and understood. These two must work together to achieve a better result and have a longer retentive memory. The best way to retain what you’ve studied, is to understand it. And you can’t understand without studying effectively. There’s difference between reading and studying and a lot of people confuse both or think they’re the same. Studying is more intense than reading. Reading can be casual, having no clear-cut goal, but studying must be done with utmost seriousness with a set goal of understanding and retaining what you’ve studied. In studying, all your five senses must be totally engrossed with the book wihout any distraction. But in reading, you can be reading and still be talking to someone or thinking of other things. Studying is more analytical and you seek to comprehend every word, phrase or clause in the book. But you can neglect whatever you don’t understand in the book and continue reading. Probably, because you’re enjoying what you’re reading. So, theres a big distinction between reading and studying. For you to retain what you’ve studied in your memory for a longer time, you must study effectively. Endeavour to understand every bit of what you’re studying. Analyze what you’re studying by painting a mental picture of it in your mind, and try to relate them with what you see everyday in life or real life situations. Rather than dwell on the abstract things you’re studying in the book, try to create or consider a scenario of those things in your head to make it more concrete. Because the mind retains more, what the eye catches or a situation that appears real than just what the ear hears without the eye seeing it. A lot of people also cram and pile up things in their head. Craming isn’t bad so to say, but craming alone will not suffice if you don’t understand what you’re craming. When you cram or memorize without understanding what you’re memorizing, the chances of forgetting is very high. Because the knowledge only stops in the brain, it has not gotten to the mind for it to stick. The brain can easily fail you as human, but whatever is committed to the mind can never be totally forgotten. And this is one major factor that’s responsible for not being able to retain something in the memory for too long. You memorize without understanding. Study effectively in a cool place, understand every word before going further. And allow your mind to analyze.

How To Overcome Discouragement And Depression.

Do you sometimes feel discouraged about life, and you’re contemplating throwing in the towel? Or you feel very depressed about certain unpleasant situations that you’re confronted with in life? This post will help you to overcome discouragement and depression, and show you how to withstand every challenging situations you’ll face in life. The major cause of discouragement in life are unfulfilled or unrealized expectations. You feel discouraged when your desires and expectations are not met. Unachieved goals, desires, dreams and aspirations, unpalatable results, dashed hopes, disappointments and other unfavorable situations are some of the major cause of discouragement. You’re definitely going to feel very discouraged when everything you’ve worked and labour for, and invested your time and resources seem not to give you the result you expected or go the direction you want. Depression on the other hand, is consequent upon certain unpleasant or appalling situation that confronts you in life. Depression makes you feel very weak, unhappy, dejected, helpless and confused. It is a condition of the mind feeling very unhappy and downcasted as a result of some agonizing situations you face in life. Discouragement and depression will make you feel all hope is lost and stop you from moving forward in life, if you allow it to demoralize you. A discouraged and depressed mind cannot reason the right way. The first and foremost step to overcoming depression and discouragement is: You must realize that as long as life continues, there must always come some unfavorable situations that you do not have the capacity to stop. These situations have been destined to come to you at some point in your journey through life, and they have a specific time and designed in such a way that you can cope with them, manage and handle them. No bad situation in life is meant to take your life, but it’s how you respond in handling them that either ameliorate or aggravate the situation. There’s a time and purpose for everything that happens to you in life. There’s your downtime and your uptime, that time when you feel very discouraged or depressed because of an unpleasant situation is definitely your downtime, so you don’t need to allow it inundate your thoughts and make you feel all hope is lost. Always try to be courageous in handling it, believe and see light at the other end of the tunnel. Since depression and discouragement are as a result of unfavorable situations that confronts you in life, and tends to make you feel like giving up about life. Always see it as a challenge to test your strength of character. Any challenge you face in life is meant to test how prepared you are to handle a greater task or responsibility. When you’re able to successfully confront your challenges, handle and overcome them, it builds up your confidence and makes you very courageous in accomplishing greater tasks. A time of depression and discouragement isn’t a time to start feeling self-pity or despair. It is a time to painstakingly manage it by not allowing that particular situation overshadow all your imaginations or thoughts. The best thing to do, is to be optimistic and believe that you’ll come out of it. God never allows any challenge you can’t overcome to come to you, it is because you can handle it, that’s why it came your way. You certainly need to know this, and be convinced of this fact, that you’ve got what it takes to confront and overcome every challenge that comes your way. Always expect challenging situations, because life is full of challenges. Life isn’t always a bed of roses, and things must not always go the way you want them to go. If you always have this fact in your mind, then i can assure you of handling every challenge that comes your way. Remember, no challenge that’s greater than your capacity to handle can confront you, and it is because you can handle it, that’s why it came the first place. Worry and Anxiety

How Your Temperament Affects Your Career In Life.

Our temperaments plays a very major role in our lives. It controls virtually everything you do in life. How you eat, work, shop, drive, act or react to a particular situation, how you clean your room or surrounding, how you relate with people, with your wife and children, how you pray, write, read, teach and also how you raise your children can all be traced to your temperament. But most importantly, your temperaments affects your career either positively or negatively. It determines how successful you’ll be in your chosen career. Whatever behaviour you portray in life can be linked to your temperaments. Your temperament plays a vital role in determining which career is best for. Therefore, if you’ve not discovered the temperament you’re born with, i will appeal to you to read this post carefully and read more about temperament before going ahead to choose your career. Your lifetime career is very important, it makes you, moulds you and packages you into the kind of person you ought to be in life. Your career is the totality of who you are in life, therefore you definitely need to meticulously and conscientiously choose it, to avoid being in the wrong career. A lot of people dabble into different careers for different reasons, probably, because of the financial benefits involved, opinion of their friends or colleagues, pressures from family members and relatives or because of societal challenges, without really taken time to know if it conforms with their temperaments. The right career for you, is one you derive joy in doing. You’ve got an inner passion and motivation for doing it irrespective of how little the financial gains involved. However, the best career for you, is one that agrees with your temperaments, the one that describes you, that makes you feel fulfilled and accomplished.If you want a career that will help you stand-out among your competitors and carve out a niche for yourself,it must be one that goes pari-pasu with your temperament.If you for the wrong reasons choose the wrong career,it will definitely affect your productivity in life and that of your organization.This post is meant to give you an overview of the four different temperaments,and their characteristics so that you can discover which class you fall into and make the right choice in choosing the best career that conforms to your temperament. Now what is temperament?The word temperament is very broad when describing it in terms of human demeanor.Infact,it will run a whole gamut of the human race to analyse temperament with reference to human behaviours. But for the purpose of this post, i will only limit myself to the core basics and general knowledge of the human temperaments from which you can determine the one that best describes you,and use it as a basis for choosing your career.Temperament is the character traits you’re born with, that was passed unto you by your parents.It is embedded in your genes and chromosomes,and controls everything you do in life. It is a combination of the biological(from your parents)and environmental factors.You’ll naturally possess the same character your parents possessed, and behave exactly the same way they behaved,except for some societal influences that might likely have a little effect as to altering those traits.There are four classes of temperaments: Sanguine,Choleric,Melancholy and Phlegmatic.The sanguines and cholerics are predominantly extroverts,but the sanguines are superextroverts.The sanguine is a very lively,buoyant,warm, hilarious and pleasure loving person.External impressions easily finds way to his heart.Emotional feelings rather than reflective thoughts predominates his mind,which consequently forms his decisions.He’s major weakness is indiscipline and unserious, and this affects him negatively in life. It can be curtailed if blended with a choleric or melancholy temperament.He detest routines or being confined.He’s an outgoing person,any job that allows him freedom and going to be with people,is perhaps the best for him.The choleric is a strong-willed,self-sufficient, practical,quick,active,independent and hot-tempered person.He’s very decisive and opinionated in nature,makes decision for himself and for others.He’s very sarcastic and does not care how you feel,he has the least developed emotional nature.He’s a natural leader,motivator,hard to please,full of activities,goals and ambition,but hardly completes any task.He hates details and analytical thinking.Any leadership role is good for him,but succeeds more when he works with a melancholy.The melancholy is the richest of all the temperaments. He’s very intelligent,analytical, self-sacrificing,gifted and a perfectionist with a very sensitive emotional nature But one major weakness he has,is low self-esteem,because of their perfectionist nature and hard to satisfy attitude.Any job that requires problem solving is good for him.The phlegmatic is calm, easygoing and never gets upset. But he lacks motivation. READ! temperamentcharacters

Why Nigeria Unemployed Graduates Should Start Thinking of Creating Jobs For Themselves.

As i take a critical and introspective look at the state of affairs in this great nation(Nigeria) and its future, with the increasing number of unemployed graduate and the alarming rate of unemployment currently ravaging the country. I cannot but ask myself this question: “Is there really hope for the youths who are supposed to be the leaders of this nation in years to come? I doubt if we are on the right part to securing the future of our great country, and if we are making any concrete plans for the so-called future leaders of tomorrow, looking at the high rate of unemployment and unproductivity. Because an unemployed person is not only bankrupt, but also lacks the capacity to be productive. UNEMPLOYMENTUnemployedPlayDrafLagos. For instance , the recent recruitment exercise conducted by the Nigerian Immigration Service(NIS), in which 18 people lost their lives, as a result of stampede. Six million unemployed or underemployed graduates applied for only four thousand five hundred available immigration jobs. Can you imagine the overwhelming level of unemploment? The facct is that government lacks the will and capacity to create job for everybody. The unsteady state of the economy, unfavourable environment and the spate of insecurity makes it difficult for investors to invest in the country, which also contributes to the high rate of unemployment. The only way you can overcome these challenge of unemployment, is to be creative, look inwards to discover what you can do to create job for yourself. There’s no better time than now to start thinking of becoming your own boss.

The Importance of Perseverance and Determination.

Perseverance and determination are two essential success ingredients that cannot be overlooked when it comes to succeeding in any endeavour of life. There is no retreat no surrender in success. You keep trying until you get to your final destination. Success is like a man digging the earth in search of gold, after he had dugged up to 10 feet and could not find the gold, he abandoned it. But all he needed to have dugged to see the gold, is more 2ft. Unfortunately for him, another man came in and continued from where he stopped, and dugged just 2ft, and he discovered the gold.

How To Make Money With Your Blog: Without A Domain Name.

Blogging is basically a means through which bloggers share their ideas, knowledge and experience on various areas of life with the whole world. It might be on entrepreneurship, social media, business, entertainment, photography, cooking, decoration, fashion, cars, travels or any area you find very interesting and you’ve got passion for, that you feel others ought to know about. Blogging about your passion is very important, especially in this internet age, because it is a means of getting yourself and your abilities known to the whole world and also carve out a niche for yourself in the international network. A lot of bloggers, blog for fun, while others blog to earn money from it. Whether you blog for fun or you blog to make money with your blog, blogging gives you the opportunity to make your voice heard. Blogging for money can be a great reward for sharing your knowledge and ideas, but you must work at it. To start earning money with your blog takes a little time, it takes patience, hardwork and commitment to start getting the dollars role in. This is definitely one of the major reason why so many bloggers who started a blog with the aim of making money with their blog, quits very easily. Before starting a blog with the intention of making money with it, you must settle this fact in your heart, that it takes time, so you need to be patient, committed and work hard at it. This happened to me, when i started my blog earlier, like five years ago, I’ve read so many articles on the internet about making money with a blog, it was so easily expressed, and i felt like creating a blog immediately and start making money with it. But to my disappointment, for more than two and half years, i was virtually making nothing, my account balance from online ad networks never got past two dollars. I was discouraged and i felt like quitting. However, i summoned courage and persisted and my confidence was that my monthly pageviews was increasing, so people were actually seeing my blog. That persistence and hardwork had finally paid off, and today i make between $10 to $100 monthly, and my blog on: http://www.ejimsbizservices.blogspot.com also ranks no. 1 in Google among social media business services blogs. Therefore, making money with your blog, isn’t as awkward as you may think, it only takes, patience, hardwork and commitment to achieve that goal. However, making money with your blog, without a domain might be more difficult, because some blogging platforms like wordpress, tumblr, webs, and other major blogging platforms will not allow you make money with your blog without buying a domain or upgrading to a premium account. This can be seen to be justifiable, since they’re also hosting your blog for free. Hence, if you desire to make money with your blog as an upcoming blogger without a domain name, i suggest you use blogger as your blogging platform. Blogger is hosted by Google, and it allows you to earn money with your blog, provided you have enough readers, and high enough monthly pageviews. Google allows you to make money with your blog through Google adsense. By integrating Google ad code into the HTML of your blog, you can start making money with your blog. However, it is very difficult getting adsense approval for blogs unless you have very high readership and pageviews, and you must not approach Google for their adsense program, if you’ve already added other online ad networks into your blog. Google adsense is actually the highest paying online ad network, and there is a rush for Google adsense by many bloggers and website owners. Other online ad networks that easily accepts Google hosted blogs or blogger, and you can easily integrate their ad codes in the HTML of your blog, and start earning money from them are: chitika, infolinks, kontera, bidvertiser, adhitz, clicksor, adbrite, and pocketcents. The only difference between all this ad networks is the amount they pay publishers per one thousand impression, but they all accept bloggers easily and their ad codes are very easy to integrate into your blog. I will explain in details, about this online ad networks in my subsequent post. When you register with any of this ad networks, and they approve your blog, they’ll give you a code which you’ll copy and paste into your blogs HTML, and once that is done, you’ll see ads displaying on your blog. When visitors visits your blog, and click on these ads, your account will be credited, and depending on the number of your visitors and pageviews per day, you account also increases. So you must have enough visitors to your blog, and high pageviews to generate more income. I use chitika, infolinks and adhitz on three of my blogs, and i can assure you that chitika is best of all. Follow the link below to sign up for chitika, and start earning from your blog. http://www.chitika.com/publishers/apply.php?refid=ejims247 venture-capital-is-history2

WordPress or Blogger: Which Is Good For You?

A lot of intending bloggers, who wish to start their own blog, are often confronted with the challenge of making the right decisions as to which blogging platform they should use for their blogging activities. I’ve constantly received various emails and comments, asking me this particular question. I therefore thought it expedient to write on this particular topic, in order to clarify certain issues about this two blogging platforms. The truth of the matter is that, both wordpress and blogger are very good blogging platforms that any intending blogger can start blogging on, and both of them are the two biggest and most popular blogging platforms. Both wordpress and Google blog are easy to create, but there are still differences between both, which is what this post is intended to highlight. Your choice of any of them, absolutely depends on what you want. Most people may prefer wordpress for one particular reason, while others may prefer blogger for other reasons. But whatever your reasons are, the most important thing is that you want to create a blog that will definitely stand out with time. Now, back to our question. “wordpress or blogger”? For wordpress, like i said earlier, both of them are very easy to create. Just go to: http://www.wordpress.com, and create your wordpress blog. There are so many advantages of using wordpress as your blogging platform. For a wordpress blog, you have so many nice and well designed templates that makes your blog look very unique to your visitors, some are free, while others have a little price tag, and depending on what your blog is all about, you are free to choose the right template suitable for your blog. Therefore, you do not need any design knowledge to have a very good looking and attractive blog. I’ve had a couple of my readers ask me, if i designed my blog myself or i hired a web designer? I never hired any designer, i only activated and customized the template on my blog. With wordpress, you can customize your blog without much stress, and make your it look very great to your visitors. WordPress blogs are also easily listed on search engines, if you’re consistent in posting search engine friendly contents. Unlike blogger, in wordpress blog, you must separately list your keywords and categorize your contents to make it more visible to search engines, so your blog will be seen in search results when people search for anything relating to your keywords or categories. WordPress also has so many social network sharing buttons, you can share your post on, for more people to see your blog. However, wordpress has some disadvantages. The major disadvantage is that, if you’re looking forward to making or earning some money with your blog without having your own domain, then forget it. Because wordpress does not allow you make money with your blog as long as they’re hosting your it. They can advertise on your blog, but whatever they make from the advert, is, like they said, to keep the cost of running your blog since you’re not paying them to host it, so you’re only blogging to be heard and noticed by the world. Another thing is that wordpress does not allow you upload any video to your blog, unless you upgrade to a premium account, but this is not peculiar to wordpress alone. Now, for blogger, like we said earlier, both wordpress and blogger blogs are very easy to create. Blogger also has very good templates you can leverage on, to customize your blog and make it look good. In blogger blog, you do not need to list or write down your keywords and categories in separate page for search engine as Google, to see it before getting your blog listed, or show up in search result, you only need to be consistent in using the right keywords and search engine friendly terms in your posts, such that when the search engines see them, they quickly get your blog listed and you rank high in search results. This is why search Engine Optimization (SEO) is necessary for your blog, to make it rank higher search engines. Blogger also allows you to make money with your blog without a domain. You can do this by configuring the ad codes of some online ad networks into the HTML of your blog, and they automatically place online ads on it, such that if your blog generates enough traffic, you can start making money from your blog. This is absolutely how i make money online through my blog, and so many other bloggers do. As you can see, both wordpress and blogger, have advantages and disadvantages, it all depends on what you want. Wordpress or Blogger

Starting Your Own Blog.

Starting your own blog could be one of best decision you can make today. But there’s more to being a successful blogger than starting a blog. Certainly, the first step to becoming a successful blogger, is to start a blog. Before deciding to start a blog, you definitely must ask yourself. What do i need a blog for, or why do i want start a blog? No one else can answer this question, but you alone. And until you answer this pertinent question, and be resolute with your answer, you may not go too far in your blogging career. A whole lot of my readers often ask me, how can they set up their own blog? It is because of this incessant questions, that i decided to pitch my blogging career around this title: “Effective Blogging Tips For Bloggers”. Like i said earlier, before setting up your own blog, you must first define in clear terms, what you want to do with a blog. Setting up a blog is quiet easy, but being consistent and successful is where the onus lies. This is the major reason, so many people loose interest in blogging immediately after setting it up. Becoming a successful blogger, requires passion, patience, commitment and good writing skills. You need hardwork and an enduring attitude to become a successful and renowned blogger. It takes time for you to succeed as a blogger. But with hardwork, patient and absolute commitment to your dream and passion, the sky will definitely be your starting point. In starting your own blog, you must clearly define your passion, which area are you passionate about, or which aspect do you have knowledge and expertise in, that you want to share with the world. You need to choose any area that interests you most, which you feel you’ve got the necessary knowledge and experience that others need to learn from. Probably, you’ve got good ideas, knowledge and experience in business, entrepreneurship, entertainment, application development, web development, cars, relationship, social media or any area you feel people should know about. Your blog ought to be hinged about that area, and blog consistently about it. The next thing to decide when starting your own blog, is which platform should you use as your blogging platform. WordPress and Blogger are the biggest and well known blogging platforms. Every blogger actually started with either of this platforms, before going for their own domain name. Therefore, you definitely need to choose between this two platforms, depending on what you want from your blog. Starting a blog on either wordpress or blogger is free, you pay nothing to get it started, but there are limitations if you don’t own your own domain. In my subsequent posts, i will be highlighting the difference between this two blogging platforms, so you can know which one is good for you. THANKS! yourownblog

Her mind was inundated with worries, griefs, pains and anxieties for a very long time. A day came, when she decided to get rid of pains and sorrows permanently from her life. She took a decision to visit a herbalist home to demand for a charm that can excommunicate pains and sorrows entirely from her life. When she got to the herbalist home, she demanded for the charm, but the herbalist astonishingly looked at her and said, “woman, i have no charm to give thee that can permanently take pains and sorrows away from your life”. But to help you, i will advice you go into the city, search for all the nice residential buildings and ask the occupants. “please i’m looking for a place where there’s no pains and sorrows but only happiness, is this such place? The woman being hopeful of getting a solution to her problem, took off at once. And when she came to the first building, she asked, “please i’m looking for a place where there’s no pain and sorrow but only happiness, is this such place”? The occupants replied her, definitely not! And they began to narrate all the calamities that has befallen them in recent times. She had pity on them and comforted them for a while, then continued her journey. She came to another beautiful mansion, she said. “please i’m looking for a place where there’s no pains and sorrows but only happiness. They also replied her and said, woman! You missed your way. And they also told her the story of how they lost their only son to a fire incident, and that they’re still mourning his death. She also had pity on them and consoled them for a while, then left for other places. But unfortunately for her, every home she went to, they always tell her different problems and challenges confronting them. She felt so disappointed, but she was a bit elated by the consciousness that, at least she was not the only one being caught up in the webs of pains and sorrows. The challenges of life are myriad, and they’re not peculiar to you alone. There’s no problem in life that is new under the sun. What you think you’re passing through today, someone else has gone through it. You definitely need to rise up to this consciousness and give thanks to God for the problems you do not have, rather than concentrate on the ones you have. Sometimes, you need to go out there and see what others are suffering, for you to be able to appreciate yourself. Don’t concentrate on your challenges, rather, remain calm and confront them. Concentrating on it, makes it look so insurmountable. Just believe that one day, you’ll overcome, and see the end of that problem. No problem lasts forever , it comes within a pace of time and vanishes with time. Stop complaining, complaining never solves any problem. Rather than use that time for complaining about your problems and challenges, use it to strategize and think of the best solution to the problem. Where you can’t get the problem solved, let it be! It will definitely wane with time. Every problem and challenge in life, has an expiry date. Hence there’s no need for worry and anxiety, just believe that you’ll overcome them one day.

Overcoming Worry And Anxiety!

Do you know that so many people often worry about so many things in life? They worry about the present, they worry about the future, they worry when their desires are met, they still worry when they’re not, during their ups and down times, they worry. They worry and complain virtually about anything and everything. They go on in life living a life full of worry and anxiety. But it is quiet unfortunate that worrying, complaining and living a life full of anxieties never brings any solution to any problem, it will rather aggravate it. It is very expedient for you to know that in as much as life continues to exists, there will always be problems, and there can never be satisfaction. And this consequently brings about worries and anxieties. But is worry and anxiety the best solution to problems? Definitely not! There are various challenges that often confronts everyone in life. And these challenges are not peculiar to you, and they confront us at various stages of our lives to test our capabilities. You ought to know that everybody faces one form of challenge or the other, and there’s no one without a problem.

TIME AND CHANCE!

It doesn’t matter how long a man lives on earth, what matters is the the quality of life the man lived. Whatever a man achieves on earth, is in conformity with his destiny, it only requires time, preparation and opportunity to come to fruition. Right from creation, man’s activities has always been regulated by time. Our thoughts, plans, desires, dreams, goals, and aspirations in life, are all regulated by time. Success in life, is when preparation meets with opportunity. There must be a time in life preparation and opportunity must meet to bring about our desired success. Every success and achievements in life must definitely go through the process of time before it can be realized. And until that set time comes, we can do nothing but to wait, and when it comes, nothing can stop it. Even God, during creation set a time for everything he created. No wonder the holy scripture said in, Ecclesiates 3:1, “To everything there is a season and a time to every purpose under the heavens”. A time to be born, and a time to die, a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted, a time to kill and a time to heal, a time to break down and a time to build up, a time to weep, and a time to laugh, a time to mourn, and a time to dance, and the list goes on. This undoubtedly reveals that life is a process of time. Have you ever taken the time to ponder on why we have day and night? Why we have the seasons, winter and summer? Why a child has to stay 9 months in the womb before being given birth to? Or why a child has to take such a long time to grow into maturity? Why can’t these things just happen within a twinkling of an eye, like we’ve always seen them happen in films? It all points to the fact that everything in life is moderated and regulated by the process of time. The essence is all to add value to life, and compliment each others activities. Just like you can never the see the day and night struggling for time or position, or see the summer and the winter battling for the season ,one must definitely give way for another to come in and add its own value to life. God is the master planner, he is the greatest mathematician and scientist, he has done a material balancing on the world long time ago. Have you ever considered that for every one person that died anywhere in the world, there is always a replacement for that person somewhere else? He has destined a particular time for everyone to contribute positively, and add value to life, but most people fail to get to this destination because of ignorance and impatience. You definitely need to understand that time is very necessary to get to the height you’ve been destined to get to in life. Impatience has robbed so many people of their great destiny, because they want it to happen like in the Hollywood movies. Hope you’re not part of them? God brings down one, and sets up another, you never can tell what you might become tomorrow. If the president of any country dies today, will that make the country to remain stagnant? Definitely not, somebody somewhere must continue, that is how life was designed to be, and it is the will of God. This is what i call “material balance “, what goes out must be proportionate to what comes in. It is only time that can tell what a man will be, it isn’t by how fast and smart you are, or by your craftiness, or how experienced and knowledgeable you are, or by your intelligence. It is simply a matter of time and your personal preparation for that destination. “I returned and saw under the sun, that the race is not to the swift, nor the battle to the strong, neither yet bread to the wise, nor yet riches to men of understanding, nor yet favor to men of skill, but time and chance happeneth to them all” ~ Ecclesiates 9:11. This further butresses my point that achieving your goals, dreams and aspirations in life, isn’t by how fast, strong, wise, skillful or intelligent you are, it is a matter of time and opportunity. When that time and opportunity meets, the product will be an amazing success. The only thing you ought to be doing, is to keep preparing yourself for that great destiny that is yet to be delivered to you, by occupying yourself with meaningful activities. Don’t relax and just expect it to come on a platter of gold, you must be engaged in positive activities aimed at adding value to life. A lot of people also fail to get to their destination, because they fail to prepare themselves for it. Even after you have worked and did your best, you must wait for the right time to have that destiny delivered to you. True accomplishment in life, comes with time and chance! PLEASE COMMENT TO TELL ME WHAT YOU FEEL ABOUT THIS POST, THANKS.
