There are plenty of difficult obstacles in your path. Don't allow yourself to be one of them.
Paths without obstacles don't lead anywhere important. A successful person will never see a day that does not bring a fresh quota of problems. What makes him different, what makes him successful is his ability to deal with those problems effectively. He sees those impossible situations as opportunities to convert them into possible situations.
What are you seeing when you look at the obstacles on your path right now?

The other day I met someone who surprised me by his way of thinking. He is married to a housewife but it seems he wants her to get a job. So every time he sees me, the one question he keeps asking me is whether I have managed to get a job for his wife. The funniest thing is, I don’t even know the wife, I don’t know what kind of a job she would be interested in and whether she even wants a job in the first place.
I almost didn’t submit this article on time. Why you might ask. Well, I’ve had a roller coaster of a week and to put the icing on the cake, I had a near severe bout of food poisoning towards the end of the week. So, where were you eating from for you to get food poisoning, again you might ask. Well, believe it or not, this was not as a result of indulging in chips vumbi or mama ntilie’s food. The meal (s) that gave me that food poisoning were had in a 5-star hotel. Can you believe that?
African names are really funny, but I think the African people are even more interesting and funnier considering how they act and reason. For instance, I don’t understand why I was named Wachuka (pronounced Washuka). Is it because my mum loved wearing shukas when she was pregnant with me? Or is it because the person I was named after loved shukas? I know you are probably asking yourself why I haven’t asked my mom. Well, I did and all she told me was that the name has no specific meaning.
The other day I was reminded of the famous Sir Isaac Newton of the Law of gravity fame. I have to admit that at first I couldn’t remember which subject it was I studied about him, but as I was perched on my loo I remembered him. So, why was I thinking of Isaac Newton while I was in the toilet?
