The Active Ones Take It All

Image
Hey, you! Yes.. you! Are you still delaying that wonderful idea you may have been nursing for a while now? Have you been hesitating on starting that business, journey, career, course, or work you have  to do?

Have you identified a favorable opportunity, but you've not been able to utilize it because you're thinking too much about it? Then this article is for you. I want you to bear this at the back of your mind: "The active ones take it all."

Life offers everything to the ones who are active. Life doesn't care about your intention or what you're thinking of doing. It cares about what you're doing!

Let's say there are two people who intend to start a similar business, let's say it's a small restaurant. One of them has been nursing the idea for a long time and is very passionate about it. He keeps thinking and thinking of how to start up the business and get everything ready but has done nothing yet.

The other one also nurses the idea though he…

A Review of Ucertify Python Programming Course

Hello bold winners,

Trust you're mentally alert, motivated and doing just great?

It has been a while away from the blog again as I've been working on and exploring the world of IT(Information Technology), ML(Machine Learning) and AI(Artificial Intelligence) to see how these technologies can be utilized for the greater good.

So far so good, the journey has not been easy. I taught myself programming using Python and was fortunate to get an internship at a firm which further helped me to refine my skills.

I see a lot of amazing potential in these emerging technologies and I strongly believe that when put to the right use, it can go a long way to solve the world's major challenges.

Imagine having a personal robot that can tell when you're feeling bad and motivate or give you reasons why you should feel good about yourself by speaking to you or playing you some great videos. Imagine  tech that helps you build and maintain good relationships with people? Or even an intercon…

Please Don't Commit Suicide!

Image
Damn! Been reading about one Chukwuemeka Akachi, a poet and an undergraduate who took his own life.. I felt bad because for at least 6 months, this guy had been giving warning signs. He posted stuff on depression and death.. but then it seemed like nobody took him seriously until he finally did it. I don't what's moving me to write this post, but I must write it.
.
Suicide is a terrible way to go. People take their lives when they feel their challenges are insurmountable and they can do nothing about it. Their mind is made up because they only see negative possibilities.
.
But by taking ones life, one loses the beauty and surprises contained in the next moment. All around you and contained in each passing second are possibilities. Lots and lots of wonderful possibilities filled with hope and love.
.
But the devil tricks the minds of these people to not see any good possibility and then they eventually choose the easy way out to go by themselves.

Whatever you're passing th…

Interpret Your Reality Positively

Image
A whole lot of people are still trapped living the life that they don't desire because they keep interpreting their realities the wrong way. If you are a person used to interpreting whatever happens to you from a negative perspective, it will be difficult for you to succeed.

We see more of what we pay attention to. This is a natural law whose effects are prevalent in today's world.

Take for example: Two people went for a job interview and the both of them fails. One of them interprets his failure to mean; "I'm not good enough. I am destined to fail. I am not intelligent enough to pass such an interview." Or even things like; "I knew there was no point going for the interview, they have already selected their candidates and  I was there for formality sake."

The second candidate on the other hand who also failed interpreted his situation this way; "Perhaps, this is not the right job for me and I had to fail it, so I get a chance for a bigger and more…

My Inspiring Chess Story

Image
At some point during my final year in school, I was really low on cash. My final year project really took a big chunk of my budget and my account was red.
.
I didn't know what to do. No help was coming from home and some other substantial money I was expecting from a reliable source was delayed for some reason.
.
 I was just hoping for a miracle. I wouldn't classify myself as a student who was too religious. I am seldomly seen in church on other days apart from Sunday and the only exceptions were during some weekdays, when I was either going to the chapel to pray or for a meeting.
.
So, on one of those occasional days during my financial drought period, I was returning to my hostel and I ran into a fellow student. We greeted and he asked me if I wasn't aware of the chess competition that was currently on(because he knew I played chess). I told him I wasn't and he was surprised about that.
.
So he directed me to the venue and when I got there, I saw a number of people …

A Wise Article On What It Means To Love

Image
A lot of people are unhappy, because they are not experiencing love. They feel that nobody cares for them because of a few experiences they have had with terrible people and therefore they adopt this attitude of "me against the world". This attitude which is generalized to everyone still leaves them feeling unloved because they try to do everything for themselves.

This article by Kaosilisochukwu Nwizu Charles addresses this problem by really giving us all a sneak peek into what it means to love. The me against the world approach, though it seems to be working and will definitely get you results isn't actually the best approach to live. We are wired to love.. And no matter how hard we try to pretend that we can take care of ourselves without any other support, we really need love from others.

This article addresses the questions of: "why am I still unhappy?", "Why don't I receive as much love as I give?", "Why do I feel lonely or depressed?&q…

5 Ways To Start A New Year

Image
1. Thanksgiving
It is very important to thank God; the giver of life for the gift of life and for every good thing that He sent your way in the outgoing year. Appreciation opens the door for more to come through.
Be grateful for the good things that came your way the previous year and hope for better ones in the new year.

2. Review Your Year
If you don't know the cause of a problem you can't solve it adequately. There is a great need to do a proper year review; highlighting where you missed it and analysing your actions and reactions.
A lot of people don't take this seriously. You don't jump into the new year without taking an introspective look into your life the previous year. Remember, two steps forward, one step back.

3. Learn From The Past But Don't Live In It
After reviewing the year, you will gain the understanding on how and where your actions were futile. You will know with certainty the things and people in your life that are not adding any positivity to yo…
