    You first conceive it in your mind before you act on it in the physical. Every action ever performed on earth first happened in the mind as a thought before it became a reality for the person who conceived it. Unless someone is possessed by demons, no one does things withouth having thought them (through) first. For instance when you slap someone, it doesn't just happen by mistake; it is... [Read More]

    Assuming you are on your laptop at night and then power suddenly goes off, what happens?  If your keyboard is illuminated then the light going off does not affect you. But if you are using one of those old laptops without illuminated keyboards, then unless you know how to type without looking at your keyboard you might as well shut down because typing will become a nightmare for you. When... [Read More]

    “It isn’t what you have, or who you are, or where you are, or what you are doing that makes you happy or unhappy. It is what you think about.” ~ Dale Carnegie And that right there is why I say happiness is a choice.  It is a choice because once you know what makes you unhappy, you'll not want to stick around and wait for it to bring you unhappiness, will you? A normal person will not. He or she... [Read More]

    Two little boys were playing on some ice during winter. As they were playing one fell through a section that had thin cold ice. Instantly, the little fellow who was left on top of the ice did not panic but instead attempted to save his buddy. Unfortunately, the little boy was (literally) too little and too short to reach his buddy, though he could see him through the ice, slipping further and...

    Has it ever occurred to you that most people see you as they see themselves, that the things they say about you are the things they themselves are?  That’s why some smart people came up with the theory that if you want to catch a thief, send another thief to catch him. Think about that for a minute. What people think about should be none of your business. Even if you find out what their opinion... [Read More]

    People who know who they are don’t waste their time complaining. They have tuned their minds to be positive no matter what. They always look for something to be grateful for. To them, the glass is never half empty; it is always half full. An attitude of gratitude will always create room for more things to be grateful for. This is a proven fact. But what surprises me most is not the fact that... [Read More]

    The other day I heard some Swahili sayings that reminded me those days when I was in school. We used to have this Swahili teacher who would consistently use Swahili sayings to instill the fear of life in us. Looking back at those days, now I realize that her intentions were right but her approach was somehow off. She should not have been using the sayings to scare us, but she should have been...

    Every day I go out jogging, I encounter things that really amuse me, from people telling me “pole kwa uchovu wa mazoezi”, others whistling at me to try get my attention, then of course there are those drivers who just flash their headlights at me assuming I will interpret the meaning of the flash, then there’s that mad (insane, lunatic) guy who is extremely physically fit because he is always...

    Remember the story I shared last week about the cabbie named Wasu? Well, for some reason that story stuck in my mind and I found myself thinking about it consistently. I know what you are thinking; but you are the one who shared the story so why would you keep thinking about it? I guess the sole reason is because of the many lessons we can learn from Wasu, lessons like what happens when you... [Read More]

    The other day I happened to be at home and while doing a few things in the kitchen I smelled something rotten. I didn’t know what it was and since this is not like a phone you can call and once it rings you know where the phone is, I had to rely on my nose to follow the smell and finally identify where it was coming from so that I can clean it out. Finally, after overworking my nose, I realized... [Read More]

    It is sad how people go about life clueless and purposeless, forgetting that there is no way they could have been created if there was no purpose for them to fulfil. I know I have said this several times before but as I was thinking of what to share with my readers this week I was compelled to remind us all about living a purpose-led life, a life where you wake up in the morning not because your...

    Let’s face it, no matter who you are, all what you do, every so often you will have some days in your life when thoughts of self-doubt and insecurity attack you like a swarm of bees. This could be due to certain things happening in your life at that particular moment such as multiple failures in projects you are handling, a bad relationship, stagnated business,etc. Well, we are not super-beings (...

    It’s not every week I know what I will be sharing with you my readers. Sometimes my thoughts are so jumbled up that I don’t know where to start and to say the truth, sometimes I don’t get a clear direction until a few hours before I submit my article to Guardian. Today’s article is one such article. I wasn’t sure what I’d write about until early on Saturday morning when I was jogging, then just... [Read More]

    In my article last week I touched on the bitterness, anger, jealousy, envy, etc that seems to be ruling the world today. It seems like love has gone out of the world and instead of it there is hatred. But fortunately, there are a few people who still have their hearts filled with love and no matter what happens they don’t allow the contamination in the world to extend to them. Unfortunately, the... [Read More]

    Technology and specifically gadgets seem to have taken over our lives nowadays. Majority of the human race either has a smartphone, a tab/pad, a smart-watch, a laptop or a desktop computer. We have become so dependent on these gadgets that should they fail for whatever reason, that becomes a great reason for us to suffer major frustrations. For those of us who understand gadgets, we do know that... [Read More]

    Wednesday was really not my day.  No, wait a minute, as a motivational speaker I cannot be negative, so let me rephrase that. Wednesday was a very trying day in the sense that by 3pm in the afternoon, nothing had worked as it should have. All the same I chose to stay positive since I was taught that a day has 24 hours and so far only 15 of those had  passed by the time I started writing this... [Read More]

    Earlier this week I had the rare opportunity of going through a few things basketball. Actually, I have to admit it all started when I went looking for some inspiring and motivating video clips on youtube. I had no specific category in mind but then somehow I landed on sportsmen. There were quite a number of them but the one that really inspired me was one about a 6-6 sized basketball legend who... [Read More]

    They say mentally disturbed people are found in mental hospitals but from what I’ve been seeing lately, it seems like most of them are on the roads openly displaying their level of madness. Yes, I am talking about the many insane drivers we encounter every day we are on these roads. Interestingly enough, it doesn’t matter whether you are in Dar Es Salaam, Arusha, Nairobi or Kampala. It seems like... [Read More]

    Ever tried working out in a gym all by yourself? It is possible but it is very boring. Besides it can be very risky especially if you are lifting heavy weights. What if you lost your grip and the weights fell on you? Or, what if you got a muscle pull in the middle of lifting the weights and you needed help? All those are real life scenarios that have happened in the past. It is best to have a gym... [Read More]

    "Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter." - Martin Luther King, Jr. If this is not the first time you are reading this powerful quote from the late Martin Luther King, Jr, then I'm hoping you've at least had a chance in the past to think about the impact of those words. If not, let's take a few minutes to think through them together by using an example we can all... [Read More]

    So it’s the rainy season again, at least in Dar Es Salaam anyway, and with the rainy season comes all manner of mixed emotions. Some love the rain especially when it rains at night because it somehow soothes them to sleep, while others (like me) dislike it when it rains at night because it terrifies me. I had a bad experience once where thugs broke into our house at night while it was raining, so... [Read More]

    It is exactly three days to the New Year and even though 2013 has 365 days like any other non-leap year, for me it has seemed like it has been twice as long. I am not superstitious but at some point during the year I was tempted to think that the “13” in the year was a sign of ill-luck. However, like someone once said, you don’t need to be in class for you to learn a new thing… how true this is!... [Read More]
