Fear

    Every day I have a routine of posting some inspirational stuff on my social media, especially on Instagram and on my Facebook Fan Page. This week I’ve been doing a lot of posts relating to change, change management, reflections and the like. In today’s article I want to continue with the same flow but first, let me encourage you to visit my Facebook page or my Instagram page. There is always... [Read More]

    There’s a place I was to be at on Friday and Saturday and since in my mind I knew I’d be there for those two days, I chose to not have my car cleaned at home so that I can have the cleaning done there. When I got to this place on Friday, I found the guy I wanted to clean the car busy cleaning other cars but since I knew I was going to be there the next day, when the time came for me to leave I...

    It is as simple as the title reads. There is no challenge that was ever accepted that never brought change to the challengee (is there such a word?). According to one version of the English dictionary, the word challenge has been defined as, "the situation of being faced with something that needs great mental or physical effort in order to be done successfully and therefore tests a person's...

      Asking  for directions is something a lot of people (read men) avoid doing, yet it is something that can save them (read men) a lot of time. This weekend I found myself in a place I have never been to before, a place I have only been seeing on television or when I pass it while on the way to another destination, since this place (an institution actually) is strategically located on one of the...

    There is a FIRST STEP in everything you do. Like the old adage says, “the journey of 1000 miles starts with the FIRST STEP." This day started with you opening your eyes and deciding to step out of bed. When you get to your office there will be that FIRST STEP you will need to take in order to set your day in motion. Could be taking our phone to call that customer, or opening your laptop to send... [Read More]

    Whereas it is good to know your limits, it is equally important to say NO to those limits. The greatest breeder of limits is FEAR.  Because of fear many people have settled for less than they should. Because of fear, many people have opted to camp on the roadside instead of climbing to the top of the mountain where their cabins are found. Fear cripples. Fear limits you. The only way to say NO to... [Read More]

    Think about that for a minute….Done? Good. Similarly it would be very awkward to find a car “sailing” on water, unless of course it is one of those modified ones that are accustomed to being on both water and land - the ones we see on movies and sci-fi channels.  Same case applies to a ship on the road. I mean, how would that even work? It wouldn’t even move an inch on the road without grazing... [Read More]

    When I first saw this image, it gave me the creeps. I thought the dog had a peculiar skin disease only to realize that it was actually not a disease but just an illusion caused by the effects of  sunlight streaming through a patterned lace curtain, whose pattern flatteringly landed on the dog, causing this eerie looking image. Fear has the same exact effect on humans too. It is an illusion. An... [Read More]

    It is the first Sunday of the final quarter of the year. Not sure you’ve noticed this, but we are already in the quarter represented by double digits, and the festive season is just around the corner. This is normally a defining moment for many, where one person suddenly realizes they’ve wasted a whole nine months, while another jumps in jubilation because they are actually doing very well on...

    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...

    The other day I was driving and saw some chicken walking around the backstreet I was driving on. I purposely increased my speed as I approached them to see what they would do. One that looked like the mother hen saw the car coming from her side eye and quickly quacked as though to warn off the smaller chicks, then she flapped her wings and attempted to fly but of course just ended up “flalking”...

    It’s funny how some things never make sense when you first read them until something happens that triggers a memory and alas, suddenly what didn’t make sense before now does. Joyce Meyer, one of my favorite televangelists, in her book “Battlefield of the mind” said this, “Our past may explain why we're suffering but we must not use it as an excuse to stay in bondage.” The first time I read this...

    If you allow people to make more withdrawals than deposits in your life, you will be out of balance and in the negative. Know when to close the account ~ Christie Williams

    Forgetting the past and moving on is easier said than done. Enough times I have struggled with many elements of my past but thankfully with prayer and trust in God, I have been able to let go. Maybe you are in such a place right now, a place of being unable to let go. If you can say this prayer and mean it, I believe you will get the strength to let go and let God. Heavenly Father, It is time for... [Read More]

    People do odd things when they are bored. Say for instance the guy I saw the other day trying to run backwards on a treadmill. I don’t really know what he wanted to achieve but if you ask me, that’s more like courting disaster, but like I said, guys do some really odd things when they are bored. Of course seeing this guy doing what he was doing on the treadmill got my ever active mind wandering.... [Read More]

    “Courage is not the absence of fear, but rather the judgement that something else is more important than fear..." ~ Ambrose Redmoon

    Like Lucas Jonkman said, fight your fears and you’ll be in battle forever but face your fears and you’ll be free forever. In other words, if you resist your fears, they will keep persisting, until the day you choose to face them and overcome them. For instance, if you are aquaphobic, the only way to overcome that fear is by taking the step towards facing your tormentor i.e. water, especially big... [Read More]

    "When you walk to the edge of all the light you have and take that first step into the darkness of the unknown, you must believe that one of two things will happen; either there will be something solid for you to stand upon, or you will be taught to fly" Well, those are the words of Patrick Overton taken from his poem "The Leaning Tree". Unfortunately though, not many of us ever find out whether... [Read More]
