    There’s this story that goes something like this.... There was this man in a far away land. In this land, they used to enjoy dog fights, just like in some parts of east Africa people enjoy bull-fights. Whenever there was a fight, the man would go in early and bet on one of the two dogs in the fight. Regardless of how big or small his choice of dog was, whichever dog he bet on always won.  Several... [Read More]

    Today I want to talk about passion. What is the definition of passion? Before I go to the dictionary definitions, let me share some two stories that will contextualize passion for you. A story is told that a dispassionate young man approached the Greek philosopher Socrates and casually stated, "O great Socrates, I come to you for knowledge". The philosopher took the young man down to the sea,... [Read More]

    Happy new month, the twelfth and last month of the year. Today I’d like to start by sharing a trivia question. As you read the transcript below which I got from the Goal Cast YouTube channel, see whether you can try and guess who the story is describing before you actually get to see his name. Here goes... “My father was a spy and my mother smuggled drugs. They abandoned me when I was six. I was... [Read More]

    Many people go through life not living their purpose. Many actually wonder what their purpose is. Someone asked me how one can identify their purpose and in answering that question, I decided to do a short clip. If you had a similar question, hope this clip fills in the gaps for you. Be Ignited. Be Inspired. Be Influenced. Become the best version of yourself you can ever be.

    If you know me, then you know I love a good story. I don’t mean “umbeya” kind of stories but stories that have the potential to build me and others around me. So today I want to share one such story with you. Hundreds of years ago there was a king of Scotland and his name was Robert the Bruce. It was a good thing that he was both brave and wise, because the times in which he lived were wild and... [Read More]

    The more I live in this world, the more I confirm that success is not a destination, but it is a journey. It took me a long time to get that fact right but eventually I did and now that it is in my mind, it no longer worries me any more that I might not get to my destination. Why? Because it is not the actual destination that counts but what you do between now and where your supposed destination... [Read More]

    Indeed life is like a long unwinding road heading somewhere upcountry; those are always several kilometers long and never really seem to come to an end.  Some parts are straight while some have bends. Some are uphill and some go downhill. Some parts have bumps while others have potholes; potholes of varied depths and sizes. But they all make part of YOUR road. Question is, do you know your...

    Forget about the bike; just looking at it makes me feel like going for my riding gear and riding this beauty for the next several hours. What a beauty! Anyway, I digress. Everything you’ll ever want in life begins with you. The day I realized that if I want something achieved I have to achieve it myself, that is the day I realized I have no one to blame for where I am except for ME. Similarly,... [Read More]

    Going after your dream, or walking your designated path may not necessarily be easy. Today I want to share a story about someone whose dream was almost snuffed out by a teacher. Yes, a TEACHER. When his teacher asked him what he wanted to be when he grew up, he wrote down on his paper that he wanted to be on TV. His teacher sarcastically asked him whether he personally knew someone on TV, to... [Read More]
