I love music. When I’m in the car, I play music or listen to the radio. I also love to sing. I used to write my own songs. Some of the songs I sing at home or when I feel like, at work, were written by me. Although not recorded, but I reflect on the past when I sing those songs – I see the many roads I’ve walked when I sing. In spite of my love for music and singing, there’s a place to press the stop button, and a time to completely silent all symphonies, no matter how sonorous they may be. So, I don’t always sing. I don’t always play music. I don’t always dance. Sometimes, I mute. Sometimes, I shut all voices. Sometimes, I stop the music. Sometimes, I go quiet. The days of quiet are the days of reaching the deepest part of my soul.…

The easiest way to describe a goal is to use football as illustration. In a football game, there are goal posts, which are the target points, and there’s a ball. The drive of everyone on the pitch is to kick that ball into the net – the moment the ball goes into that net; a goal is scored. No matter how much ball possessions you have, or how much attempt you make on target, if the ball doesn’t go into the net, you do not score – no goal is achieved. To score a goal, there are five steps to follow – these are five steps to success in life. These steps can basically be applied in all hemispheres of life. Talent Angela Duckworth of the University of Pennsylvania says: “Talent—when I use the word, I mean it as the rate at which you get better with effort. The rate…

The reality of life is that it’s not “first come first served –“ it’s the one who desires it most that gets it. If you’re seated, waiting for your turn, the one who came after you, will get it first, and the sad news is that you may never get anything depending on your attitude – what makes you get anything out of this space called earth is your attitude. These days, rewards aren’t based on longevity – they’re based on drive, desire, and determination. If you think rewards are your entitlements, you’ll end up with nothing. There are lots of people born and raised in affluence, who end up as never-do-well, because they felt they were entitled to do well due to their backgrounds. They didn’t see their statuses as privileges, and as typical of privileges, you must be careful of it, otherwise, you’ll lose it – they lost…

There was a time when where I am, was the dream of where I wanted to be. There was also a time when who I am was my aspiration – I desired to think the way I think, do the things I do, and live the way I live. Back then, I was hungry for it – I wanted to be it – I wanted to live my dream. The crave to become what I wanted to be was uppermost in my heart. The only picture I saw was my dream. Bit by bit, I fought the odds of life and every limitation that held me bound. I worked on the slimmest opportunities I had, and where they were non-existent, I scratched the surfaces of rocks to get drops of water from within. On few occasions, I got a few cups that would keep me alive as I trod the…

When last night, Liverpool beat Barcelona to qualify for the 2019 Champions League Final, I was one of those that concluded before the match that Liverpool would never make it. I didn’t bother talking about it on the social media because I felt it was a foregone issue. I didn’t watch the match because I was busy at work, but I followed the update on BBC Sport, just for the sake of enjoying football. When at the seventh minute, Origi scored for Liverpool, I thought it was just one of those, and that sooner than later, Barcelona would cancel out the goal, and may even add one or two before the end of the game. I knew when the first half was getting ended, because I refreshed the page. For about an hour, I didn’t have the time to check the scores, but when I finally did, I screamed aloud…

The year is moving so fast, and the days, weeks, and months are in a hurry to jet-speed.  Whatever you plan for the year, you must start now, or you may never start. I believe in NOW – it has always been my philosophy; and with that, I defeat procrastination. As you run through your plans and envision your expectations, you must recognize that you aren’t the only one that’ll walk through the 2019 road; there are lots of people with diverse aspirations, inspirations and intentions. They too want to make progress. They too want to succeed. They too want to cut their own share of the cake as we celebrate the end of this year come December. Knowing who walks on your road, knowing who runs on same lane with you, and knowing who steps on same track with you is quintessential as you marathon through the rest of…

Passion is when you are strong about something you love to do. For examples like your talent because you have the desire to do it. Some people have different types of passions like; being on TV, writing books or even being an inspirational speaker. Now let’s move on to people who have these passions. Number 1, Walt Disney – when Disney was growing up, he was obviously working to earn more cash but also on his spare time, he was drawing pictures. But the first picture he ever sold was a picture of his neighbour’s horse. He didn’t stop there, he kept on working very hard night and day to be an amazing artist and have a very famous film company. Number 2, Thomas Jefferson is so celebrated as a statesman, writer, architect and librarian – it’s easy to miss the fact that he was a celebrated violinist. Jefferson took…

Michelle Obama said, ‘When girls are educated, their countries become stronger and more prosperous.’ There has been significant progress in girls’ education, but still, not every girl is able to be educated especially more in LICs, which is upsetting. A child’s education is vital as it gives them the knowledge and skills they require. These are reasons why a girl should be educated: 1. It Furthers Educated Generations: By sending a girl to school, she is more likely to send her children to school. An African proverb says, ‘If you educate a man, you educate an individual, but if you educate a woman, you educate a nation.’ 2. It Narrows Pay Gap and Increases Chance of Entering the Workforce:Christina Taylor says ‘Girls’ education is about so much more than knowledge. By ensuring a girl has equal access to education, employment and adequate healthcare, the benefits will pass on to her children, community…

There are different types of content, and these include audios, videos, eBooks, case studies, infographics, white papers, checklists, interviews, images, articles, blog posts, social media posts, e-courses, emails, newsletters, presentations, webinars, promotions, quotes, testimonials, company news, and many more. According to Wikipedia, in publishing, arts, and communication, content is the information and experiences directed towards an end user or audience. So, all your Facebook, twitter, or other social media posts are content, and there is this meme amongst bloggers that content is king. The proven fact is that content is actually king, and if you want to stand out in this digital age, creating your own content is very essential and not debatable. A content creator has many edges over content curator. Rohit Bhargava, a marketing expert said a ContentCurator is someone who continually finds, groups, organises and shares the best and most relevant contenton a specific issue online. A…

He played the enemy. He played the helper. He staged us in debacle. We were lost – completely out of sight. Swallowed by the uncompromising waves and in the wild eyes of the storm – it was tsunami-like. We survived. How we did, I know not, but at least, we found ourselves on dry land and to our surprise, he sent a limo to pick us up. Same devil, same god. I know I can think with my head. I try as much as I can to use my brain. I observe my world. In addition to observing my world, I do as much as I can to observe other people, and when I do, I try so much to draw sensible lines, and respect them. Everyone is smart – we must realise that, and never take anyone for granted. You can offend anyone – you can inflate your ego,…
