A Day With The ATM Machine

a day with The ATM machine

What I'm about to tell you happened yesterday in town when I went to use my ATM at a Diamond bank branch. I walked into the ATM booth with a friend of mine Daniel.

 We were quite discouraged at the crowd outside waiting to withdraw money, but compared to the previous banks we've checked
out, the number of people seemed a little bit lesser, so  we stayed put.

A few minutes into when I joined the queue, I noticed most people were leaving their positions to join other lines. I asked the middle aged man standing in front of me what was going on. He told me, "This ATM rejects every Diamond Bank Card."

 I was with a Diamond Bank card and after listening briefly to some others complain about that particular machine, I quickly got to the front and told Daniel jokingly, "I know I'm usually lucky in this kind of situation."

Then I put in the card, put in my password and voila! The options for cash amount appeared and I withdrew my money and left in no time. Other people who had left the line earlier on with a Diamond Bank Card started rushing back to queue up.

I looked at them, thought about it a little, smiled and left with Daniel.

People usually forget that things change! What doesn't work for someone else might just work for you. It might be during your own attempt that something may change, but how do you find out if you don't even try? It might just be during your own attempt that an unforeseen opportunity might just turn up.

Don't be quick to accept negative results for yourself based on another person's results. You are different and your moment is different. That's why it's important to keep trying.

I don't really take popular opinion seriously, I like to find out things for myself. I'll rather try and fail, than not try at all.

So why do we easily follow the path of The general opinion? Why are we afraid to give our own shot to what some others have not succeeded in? The answer lies in the force of habit and herd mentality. We naturally want to follow the crowd and believe what the crowd believes.

The funny thing is that when you go against the crowd and discover something, the crowd then follows you. Winners carve out their own path. Winners think differently. They don't just accept theories, they verify them.

Stop believing anything negative that you're told by anybody. There is thing called a success mindset. A mind that doesn't take No for an answer. A person with such a mindset is unstoppable.

Always try and keep trying even where others have failed. The worst that could happen is that you fail, then so what? At least you tried, rather than accept failure without an attempt. The best thing? You could get lucky and make massive success, then the herd follows.

To try or not to try?

Your Move. :)

A Practical Guide To Quit Porn For Good

I don't need to start defining what pornography is to you, why humans are attracted to it and how it affects the brain. You can use Google to find them out. I believe why you are reading this article is simply to find out how you can end the desire to see pornography for good. That's what I'm going to FOCUS on. No distractions.

Almost everyone who uses the internet knows what porn is, even though we'd like to pretend that it's not there, but we all know it's there.

The internet is one of the best things invented on earth and has led to quick exchange of information across nations and beyond borders.

Ideally, things should be improving rapidly based on this development, but guess what? Few people are actually using that internet for something useful. Many have been drawn to the dark side of the net where pornography lives.

Web statistics really show that a lot more people are spending more time viewing porn sites and the number is increasing.

Enough of the pr…

The Definition Of A True Woman

Previously, I wrote an article on the definition of a true man. It would be fair enough to also write and article for the women who read this blog.

Women are beautiful, lovely and sensitive creatures way different from men in a lot of things both mentally and physically. They are special in their own way and also play very important roles in our society.

Just like in the case of the men, value systems seem to be changing for women too.

Most women seem to rate themselves these days based mainly on their looks. They spend so much time and money in ensuring they look very good, clean and posh. They can do anything to look attractive and get attention.

Some even go to the extent of almost going nude on social media just to feel good about themselves and get reassuring likes.

Painfully, most of these same women don't pay attention to what is inside of them. They often neglect the unseen qualities which make them who they truly are.

There are some women who boast about how many men the…
