If you follow the information contained in this article, have belief in God and yourself, you will land your dream Job sooner than later.

1. Thou Shall have a Career Goal
It is common to hear Job seekers say “I want just any job, I am tired of doing nothing, any……”. It is important that you have a Career goal in mind. You should have definite job positions and roles you want to play in the organisations you’d like to work with. You may consider matching your interest with your skills and abilities. 

There are many young men and women who desire to work with the best companies in the world but do not make any effort to find out what it takes to work with them. Yet 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…

Don't Run Away From Fear

Image
Sometimes, the things you are afraid of are usually the things you have to face in order to grow. Those situations and tough decisions that make your heart beat faster out of fear are the situations that build you up to be stronger for your life's mission.
A lot of people have been conditioned to always run away from things that scare them and that's why many of them are yet to get to where they desire to be.
The most motivated and successful people in the world today are those who faced majority of their fears repeatedly and then mastered it to the point that they have become strong enough to face any challenge they may encounter in life.
The emotion of fear is not something we should always run away from. It is something that should make us very aware of ourselves and our situation. This awareness is something that forces us to think out of the box and make the best choices when it comes to the unexpected.
But when a man or woman keeps running away from these fears, they mi…

Keep Platforming

Image
Hi guys,

Been a while away from this awesome blog.. 76 days to be precise! That's a long time, but I've got a lot going on recently in my life right now that I could barely even act on the inspiration to write. But nevertheless, no matter how many times I go offline, I will always strive to be back and write about my experiences and the life lessons that have guided me thus far.

These few months away from this blog really came with a lot of challenging tasks and opportunities in my life. The opportunities that have come my way and how they came to me still look like a miracle to me. But I know that most of the things I have written on this blog so far really helped to motivate me to see the reality of these things.

Everything I have so far experienced have still proven to me that your state of mind is very important when it comes to how far you go and the things you will experience. I have also come to realize something I call the hand of God in the grand scheme of things. Fo…
