Success

    Do you ever feel like life is moving too fast for you sometimes? This is exactly what I have been feeling lately and especially this particular month. Just the other day it was 1stof July. Now today is the last Sunday of July 2018. What happened to this month, where did the days and weeks in between disappear to?  Can you imagine that 30 weeks of this year are gone, and we only have 22 more weeks... [Read More]

    I have to admit this last few weeks have been quite busy for me considering that I had exams going on, and as a result, I haven’t really been putting in a lot of focus on reading books like I did the first half of the year. Nevertheless, I am glad that so far I just finished my 27th book and I’m now on the 28th book in the ongoing #52BooksIn52Weeks2018 book reading challenge. This is a book I had... [Read More]

    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]

    I think it’s time we acknowledged the fact that fatigue is an epidemic in our societies today, regardless of where in the world one is in. People seem to be having too much to do and very little time to do it. As a result, we have more people suffering from never ending tiredness than ever before. You must have heard (if not experienced it yourself) one or two people you know saying that they... [Read More]

    I am loving the weather lately, I mean compared to the glaring heat we experienced the first quarter of the year, this coolness is a welcome change. But of course the coolness has not come without its fair share of challenges; increased mosquitoes thanks to the “swamps” that have developed in almost all neighborhoods, impassable roads due to deepened potholes and mud puddles thanks to the heavy...

    Except for those who live to eat, everyone else eats to live. Similarly, just as we NEED food in order to live, we need GOALS in order to stay alive. Our goals inspire us, they ignite a fire in us that keeps us alive on the inside. I have always said this and I will say it again; each one of us was born to accomplish a very specific task here on earth. Nobody was born a seat-filler. Unfortunately... [Read More]

    We are already in the second week of this quarter, which also happens to be the second week of the month of April. What would you say you have done differently from the fourteen weeks that have already passed so far?  Well, here's something I 'd like to share with us this week.  For you (and I) to move on to another level, few things must happen: There is who we must be or not be There is what we...

    Every so often I get some unexpected cravings for some of the most ridiculous things; a boiled egg, stir-fried veggies with lots of hot red chilli, lemon grass tea with deep fried cassava douced in home-made chili sause, etc.  And then there are those moments I crave some juicy tenderized steak, marinated in different spices and flavours and prepared as per my craving for that day i.e. either...

    One of the ways of ensuring you have a more productive year than the previous year is by reading as many books as possible. Books are not only a rich source of knowledge but also for inspiration and motivation. You might be going through a tough time in your life but when you read a certain book, the character in that book resonates with your situation, causing you to feel strangely calm and... [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]

    Forget about what scientists, biologists, cosmotologists and all other "ists" have to say about the atmosphere and why it gets cooler as you go further and further up from the ground. They say something about the sun's rays heating the earth and then the heat from the earth starts heating the atmosphere, and that the higher you go from the ground that heat reduces and hence the cold. Which to me... [Read More]

    This quote by Jim Rohn (the late) says alot in fourteen words; "You are the average of the FIVE people you spend the most time with" To best illustrate it, let me share a story I'm sure you must have heard or read about at some point in your life. Here goes.... There’s an old, well known story of a chicken farmer who found an eagle’s egg. He put it with his chickens and soon the egg hatched. The... [Read More]

    You must have heard the saying, "do today what no one else wants to do so that you can have tomorrow what no one else will have". That right there is one pillar of success. Unfortunately most people don't get it and they think that success is something you achieve in a day. How wrong! Success is the sum total of small (correct) actions done consitently, persistently with accuracy and excellence... [Read More]

    I think Pele put it best when he said, "Success is no accident. It is hard work, perseverance, learning, studying, sacrifice and most of all, love of what you are doing or learning to do.” And that my friends is the secret of success. You cannot order success like you go in a restaurant and order for food. You have to work for it. Nothing great is handed to you on a silver platter. Like someone... [Read More]

    If I’ve said this before then I’m saying it again for emphasis: succeed in silence. Why? Because: 1. Not everyone wants to see you succeed, so they’ll want to stand in your way of success. 2. Not everyone will understand your journey, so they’ll try to discourage you. 3. Not every successful person wants you to be a success, so they will try to keep you down instead of helping you up to reduce... [Read More]

    Yes it does. It requires time to practice, time to make mistakes, time to try again until you get it right. And even after you get it right, you still have to continue practicing because if you don't then you become complacent and eventually end up losing the edge you had while you were practicing. Then you have to start all over again, which requires even more time. Whatever it is you are... [Read More]

    90% of the things I have accomplished in my adult life are as a result of being linked to someone who has been instrumental in helping me achieve them. Either they directed me to the right person(s) or they advised me on the right way to approach the issue at hand. I have gotten great positive results 100% of the times I have gone to visit someone after being introduced to them by a person with a... [Read More]

    Today you reaped (or will reap) whatever you did because sometime in the past you planted some seeds that have now borne you some returns. What you probably don’t realize is that some of those seeds might have been planted over a decade ago but you are reaping the benefits today.  Question is, what if you hadn’t planted those seeds then? That’s why I always tell people to make sure that no... [Read More]

    Many young people ignore this but the greatest gift your parents can ever give you (besides bringing you to this world and taking care of you) is a good education. Or should I call it an investment? Education is the foundation of all your future success. Now you might have read that and now you are wondering how you'll ever use stuff like algebra or calculus in your life. Well, you never know... [Read More]

    For a chef to make a buffet meal and have it ready for his guests to indulge, a lot goes into the preparation of the food. First, he has to know who his guests are and whether they are vegetarian or non-veggie. This information helps him prepare the menu items. Once he has the menu items, the next step is to find the ingredients needed, the tools (such as pots and pans) he will need to prepare...

    Success is and will never be easy.  Anyone who has ever succeeded in doing something (the right way) will tell you this.  I was looking at this picture of these guys scrambling for the ball and I realized they epitomize exactly what success is…. You have to work really hard to get what you want. There will be a lot of sweating (and probably swearing) along the way. Many times you will find... [Read More]

    Whether you like it or not disappointments are a part of life. Just like day and night are a part of life, we are assured that at some point disappointment will happen to you.  That does not mean that you should go around carrying a negative attitude or being a pessimist. No. All I’m saying is that you should not be surprised when it happens. The best way to deal with disappointments is to... [Read More]

    "All riches have their origin in the mind. Wealth is in ideas - not money" ~ Robert Collier Many people have it twisted that being rich is the same as being wealthy. You can be rich but not wealthy, but wealth can very well incorporate riches. The main difference between being rich and being wealthy is knowledge. Wealthy people know how to make money while rich people only have money.  Rich... [Read More]

    In other words, when you are young, work for the experience not for the pay cheque. Once you have accumulated all the skills and experience you can in your area of focus, then you can start calling the shots but until then, earn to learn. Remember yesterday I did mention that one of the keys to success is reading informative materials. Now, if you read the book Rich Dad, Poor Dad, there is a... [Read More]

    At some point in your life you must have heard the saying, “choices have consequences”. Yes. Whether good or bad choices, there are always consequences to deal with; could be good or bad.  Say for example Ian Jege, a very talented friend of mine who has had it with people taking advantage of his kindness. He posted this on his Facebook wall…… "Dear friends, I hope your Sunday is treating you well... [Read More]

    Today I’d like to start this article by thanking all those who wrote back to me to wish me a quick recover after finding out I was unwell. Thank you all so very much for taking the time to check on me. I don’t take that for granted. May God bless you loads. On another note, I’d like to address another set of readers who seem to be having very complex questions that don’t seem to have answers... “... [Read More]

    "What you don't use you eventually Lose" Think about it. If you decided to sit still (like a statue) in one position for just one hour, what would happen to you behind and your legs? You start getting those "needles" that prick you. Why, because at that point your legs and butt are so uncomfortable they are screaming for help - relief. They need to be exercised a bit so that the blood can flow... [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...

    Someone shared this story that I thought was quite something…. I was waiting in line for a ride to the airport somewhere in India. When a cab pulled up, the first thing I noticed was that the taxi was polished to a bright shine. Smartly dressed in a white shirt, black tie, and freshly pressed black slacks, the cab driver jumped out and went round the car to open the back passenger door for me. He... [Read More]

    There is no reward for finishing life first. However, there are many rewards for living life well. Something wonderful happens every day if you pay attention. But if you are zipping along life at breakneck speeds, how will you notice it? Life is a journey. Like every journey, you are bound to experience various obstacles along your path. Will you give up on reaching your destination because of... [Read More]
