The Active Ones Take It All

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…

Opportunities Are Everywhere


Early one morning, I left for a program in town because I wanted to beat time and traffic. I never knew that the clear blue sky was a disguise.
Enroute my destination, the sky started growing dark. When I first noticed it, I thought to myself "Damn, I'm in for this".. because I didn't come out with my umbrella or even a rain coat.

Few minutes later the rain poured down.. I was inside the bus thinking of how to alight when we get there before my thoughts were interrupted by the driver "Oya come down everybody.. Come down" he yelled.

We were already at the bus stop and unluckily for me, I was the last person to come down. That meant that the few nice spaces left under the shades where others were already standing were quickly filled up.

As I stepped down, the rain baptized me momentarily and I moved helter skelter looking for a shade. Some people were kind enough to make some room for me in front but the rain was still touching me although it was better than directly staying under it.

As I stood there wondering, I saw this young enterprising lady from nowhere. She came to the bus stop where passengers had filled up and started selling nylon raincoats!

Wow.. what an idea and what a perfect time to make sales! People were rushing to buy it. Some wore it immediately and jumped into the heavy rain like that. The girl was really a smart salesperson to spot that need.. she was quick to identify it and sold almost everything.

It's important to note that while others may be seeing the rain as an adversity or disturbance, she saw a vital business opportunity there and capitalised on it.

That same day as I finally got closer to my destination, I headed into a small shade close by to do just that when I met a young man. I said "Hi, what's up?" He also responded with a friendly greeting and we started talking about the rain in English (I speak English or pidgin to strangers). I learnt he came into the state in January without knowing anybody and was hustling by shuffling between jobs. He was currently working as a security agent in the area.

I was impressed and spoke about myself too. As we talked, I discovered he was closer to me than a stranger. We hail the same state and part of the country and we shared the same native language.

Meeting this guy offered an opportunity to get to know him. If I didn't speak at all to him or if I ignored him, I wouldn't really have gotten to know that we were even connected closely.

Opportunities are everywhere. Train your mind to find them and use them.

Keep Winning!

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…

Why Your Prayers May Look Like A Waste

Many people around the world today pray for a lot of things from God. For some of these people, their prayers are answered soon enough and for some others, God seems to have turned a blind eye to their pleas.

To the latter, they begin to think their prayers are a waste and sometimes they become frustrated and jump into the conclusion that God doesn't exist. This article seeks to explain why your prayers may look like a waste in case they seem to be unheard.

I'll begin with examples:

Meet Fred and Jerry: Fred is an undergraduate student in a reputable university studying accounting. And Jerry is a friend from the same school studying the same course.

Fred had been studying really hard to pass his upcoming final exams and he still makes out time to pray. Jerry wasn't really studying. He was always seen in the chapel praying to pass his exams. He hoped to pass the exam somehow by faith.

The exams came and Fred passed in flying colors. Jerry failed woefully and started blamin…

Try Discomfort

Many of us would rather settle for the easier way of doing things instead of taking the route that looks difficult at first glance because we hate discomfort. We go for what looks less stressful and never consider to try discomfort.

This attitude is quite understandable because when you think about it, you'll see that most people don't like anything that will "stress" them. Everybody wants it to be easy. But when you look at it deeply, you'll see that it is those people who are willing to take the road less traveled by the majority that eventually find life easier.

Many people prefer to always take the easy way. Instead of moving away from home and try to start living on your own to pursue your endeavors, many matured people these days will rather cling onto the safety of their parents. It's easier for them. There is free accommodation, free money and free food, so what's the point of trying to get things for themselves? They remain there wasting their y…
