How to Become a Better Writer What I consider a good writing isn’t when it is loaded with too many grammatical words that an English teacher would find difficult to understand, talk less, an ordinary person in the street. If it is easy to understand, and the right feedbacks obtained, to me, it becomes a super writing. For that reason, when I do articles, I prefer to use simple terminologies, so that everyone who reads them will get the messages in a very express way. This brings me to my first point – Keep it Simple When I read a write-up, be it a report, article, or a social media post, I want to see if any other person can read it and make sense of it. When a writer or the author begins to continuously use words that require constant dictionary searches, it puts me off. In writing, you…

11 June 1988, a concert was hosted in Wembley stadium to celebrate the 70thbirthday of Nelson Mandela. When it was Stevie Wonder’s time to play, he discovered that the hard disc of his synclavier containing 25 minutes of his synthesised music was missing, and that was meant to be used in the concert. He got frustrated, started crying and walked out of the stadium. This created a gap meant to be filled up, as the spectators were waiting for the next act. Tracy Chapman was then new and unknown, although her new album already sold 250,000 copies, which was relatively small to make her known, but in spite of that, she stepped up to fill the gap. She performed two songs from her new album, “Fast car” and “Talkin’ ‘Bout a Revolution,” and that shot her to stardom. In two weeks, she sold two million copies. First, Tracy Chapman was…

I woke up around 0200, 27 December 2018, and had just one thing in mind, “What New Year Message should I send to those who follow my blog, or what sort of article should I write, without necessarily repeating what I have done in the past?” After pondering for a while, I came to my usual conviction that a message of success never changes its skeletal formation-it may wear a different skin colour, but the principles remain the same. With this in mind, I decided to give what is needful, though it may end up with the same intention. I am a man with a deep pondering heart. Those who see me from the surface only know the comedian in me. Others who look a little bit below my skin see the anger in me, because sometimes, I am ferocious, but those who live with me understand how I do…

The world’s most expensive car is Koenigsegg CCXR Trevita – it costs $4.8 million. According to Koenigsegg website, the model has a unique coated fiber solution that transforms its fibers from black to a sparkling, silvery white. When sunlight hits the Trevita, it sparkles as if millions of tiny white diamonds are infused inside the visible carbon fiber bodywork.The Trevita was originally intended to be a limited edition of three examples. The white carbon fiber used for the Trevita made the car extremely difficult and time consuming to manufacture,  and a decision was taken to make the car even more exclusive and limit the number of Trevitas made to just two. As expensive as Trevita is – $4.8M, for crying out loud, tell me if you will trade your life for it, or trade any life for it, if you’re in your right mind. Of course, no! Therefore, be grateful…

Understanding the Need for Change Management Simply speaking, a fishnet is a net for catching fish. They are made from either polyethylene (resins) or nylon; polyethylene and nylon are chemicals. Polyethylenes are easily molded and are resistant to other chemicals. They can be repeatedly softened and hardened by heating and cooling, and are used for many purposes, such as making containers, tubes, and packaging. Nylon is very strong and elastic, and can be formed into fibers, sheets, or bristles. It is used to make fabrics, plastics, and molded products. Based on their material make, fishnets are classified into high density polyethylene (HDPE),  nylon monofilament, and nylon multifilament. They are transparent, invisible in water, have low drag and abrasion resistance, and high tensile strength, which means that they can be stretched and drawn out – being drawn out means they are ductile, and being ductile is the ability to be made into wire or…

Moving from Words to Tangibility At first, I thought it was a disadvantage, but until my eyes started getting larger, I didn’t know that one of man’s greatest privileges is to start life from the scratch. When those born with diamonds on the souls of their feet rant, I look beyond the glittering of man’s hardest substance – I look beyond the treasures measured by man’s covetous vision. When I was little, I heard stories, which weren’t favourable about me. I heard of rejections, abandonment. Because I know that life begins with a cell, I didn’t feel pained to build my life from where it was dropped inside rubbles. I am not angry. I am not offended. I am only grateful that I was given the opportunity to live, even if my life started from the scratch. There are lots of children without genealogy – their history was stolen from…

Arsene Wenger said, ‘When you look at people who are successful, you will find that they aren’t the people who are motivated, but have consistency in their motivation.’ Consistency is power, and it is what inspires success. Without consistency, every dream will die at birth stage. Those who climbed Mount Everest, didn’t do it without pains – they succeeded because despite the agony, consistency made them reach the summit. The industry bests didn’t attain their goals without the power of consistency. The great champions emerged and ruled in their chosen fields because they were consistent. You can’t achieve anything, you can’t become anything, you can’t reach any enviable height without consistency. I am not excited by your dream – I am excited by your consistency. I don’t respect your flamboyance – I respect your consistency. I am not impressed by your persuasive speech – I am impressed by your consistency.…

 I am a man of passion, and sometimes, my passion makes me cross many boundaries. “I see you have a great talent. If you eschew laziness, you’ll make a better person. Stop this silly indolence, and do something with your enviable life.” That was all I said. It was me seeing what he couldn’t see in himself that made me use those words – for I thought that by being a bit harsh, I could pull him out of idleness and make him run with purpose and vision. I was wrong! Instead, he sorted out “laziness” and “indolence” from my statement, and today, he no longer talks to me. So many times as I grew from an “old baby” to a “middle-age man,” I have made mistakes of assuming that everyone wants to grow beyond where they are, and become better, but different occurrences, as they unfold have made me,…

Driving On The Wheels of Destiny I am beating myself. I am saying to myself, no access. Even the best compass wouldn’t give me hope, because where I stand would confuse it. This is a place of riddles – riddles that puzzle, but have no one with the wisdom to interpret them. There are no lanes – practically no directions. It’s a remote habitat – inhabited by only those that have been dealt uppercuts by this reckless life. Yes, they said it’s a road, but it obviously has no lanes. This is the summary of existence – the untold story – the unedited version – the one we don’t want anyone to read, all because we’re all painters, colouring images on the boards of life, to make everything look attractive, like we were born without pains, and like we lived without pains. But every history is hidden in mystery. Even…

What makes people succeed in their endeavours are the little bits of positive things they consistently do, and what makes many fail is either not doing the things they should do, or doing what they shouldn’t do. I failed many times, not because I did what I shouldn’t do, but because I didn’t do what I should do. Until I began to be a doer, I didn’t succeed in my pursuits. To help you succeed, I will tell you ‘The 20 Lessons that Helped Me Stand Out in Life.’ Lesson one – You must have a plan: you can’t reach anywhere without a plan. You can become anything tangible without a plan. You can do anything worthwhile without a plan. Your excellence or underachievement is a reflection of whether you planned it or not. When it is well planned, it has the potential to be well executed. Excellence is when…
