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…

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,…

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…

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…

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…
