Happy new year.

Its new year and am totally grateful to God almighty who kept us this far, so many died in the last year but here we are jumping and screaming. God's grace was made manifest, nevertheless this Grace should not be abused. I thought and thought then came to the conclusion that the only way we won't abuse Grace is by being Thankful and the way to be thankful is to be productive.
It is new year, we should change our perspective and our thoughts there should be something unique we want to do, that would yield result, something that makes you stand out, something no one else can do. Now is the time to do that thing. Now is the time to work relentlessly and yield results. Tell your maker directly and indirectly that you are an asset . Let him be confident of the talent he has given you, let him be sure you are responsible and accountable for all you have. To be productive you don't need money you need vision, energy, passion, idea, talent and above all Grace. You have to be relentless about your passion. You don't attract support by begging. You have to be the kind of person that attracts help. You can only attract help by being passionate.
Say no to begging this new year and yes to vision, yes to passion, yes to dreams, yes to reality.

Never let what you can't do stop you from what you can do.
Its new year start doing something even if it is small, because " success is the sum of small efforts, repeated day in and day out" Robert Collier.

Yes everyone is changing, everyone is grabbing something new and different, we losing our cultural values and morals. We now enjoy the western world and so many of us can't speak our native language. 'I can't either'. Sometime last week I saw this write up on facebook where it was written modern day slavery and it had a detail of how we now pay for our own slavery and it had this picture of nude black girls working in a white restaurant it was deep. You should see it. I had to take deep breath, it is true we all know this things. It is amazing how we pay so much to get so little. It all goes down to out economic, political instability. I am so sure if my country invests 25 percent of it's natural resources efficiently and effectively we won't be having this great urge to travel to another country and even if we do, it would be for a short term purpose not a forever parole.

I happen to work with my school's international center and I have to routinely go pick students from the airport, long story short, I got talking to this 16 year old freshman and I asked out of curiosity "When would you go back home?" and he answered "Never" after he gave me this 'are you serious look?'  I was stunned and I had to control my emotions if a young child of that age has the mentality of never going back home what more of the older youths. It is amazing how we all run from our Father Land because things are not going the way it should or the way we think they should. Fleeing is not the solution. We have the power to change, we are youths, we are young, we are vibrant, we are smart and intelligent, we are Godly, we have what they didn't have at our age. We have technology, we have a choice. Most of them didn't have a choice they were forced to power not knowing fully well the do's and don'ts, the pros and cons, the what, how and when of power but in contrary we do know better. We have improved communication through out modern gadgets,apps and all. Information is now easily accessible anytime and anywhere.

I can type all day and all night but of what use is my typing, speaking. your reading and listening if we don't act. Actions speak louder than words. Do not just act based on what you know but act based on what you know best. 

In a nutshell our world doesn't need a Jack of all trades and master of none. We need a master of one. Do whatever you do well with all dedication and determination and sooner or later your uniqueness would bring you to stardom. No two heads are the same and there is a unique trait in you that no one as. Find it, Grow it. Cultivate it and soon it would yield Profit. I call it the FGCP Theorem.

Relationship as Distractions

Relationships could be distractions when done wrongly, everyone should have three different types of relationship some have four though. The first and most important relationship is with the Creator, everyone is believed to have originated from God, you should have that relationship with him always, they should never be a time where you don't have that relationship, the second one is with our family that is also important and it should always be in constant check, the third is with our friends and the last with a non marriage partner.

A non marriage partner is sometimes called boyfriend or girlfriend. That is the relationship that comes as a distraction if not properly placed. There is time for everything under the sun. A young undergraduate student I presume should not have a non marriage partner or a high school student even worse an elementary school student.

In my opinion I feel this type of relationships should wait till when you are emotionally, psychologically, mentally and spiritually fit to handle them, it doesn't hurt to concentrate on your academics and wait. It makes you more ready for it because you would long for it and prepare better than rush into it at a very young age and kill the adventure that should have been waited for. A motivational speaker once asked how many boyfriends have you married?  Sounds funny I know but the truth is we only let this things get us distracted and we often lose focus on what we should be doing and get emotionally hurt.






And remember, God always loves you all and so do I.

Association.

Show me your friend and I would tell you who you are, sounds familiar I guess so, for most of us who were born before year 2000 should be conversant with that proverb. It might be old but I assure you it is still valid. The people you talk to, walk with, discuss with, do most of life's basic things with matter a lot.

A friend, defined from the oxford advanced learners dictionary is a person you know well and like, and who is not usually a member of your family that definition holds no doubt, but in recent times once a person walks with you or sits with you during lunch that person is tagged 'your friend'. It is paramount we walk, talk, dine, associate with people we are proud of to be tagged as our friends.

Associate yourself with your friends. We all have people in our lives we can proudly call our friends and it is important we all have friends, friends are the building blocks of some key areas of one's life. 'No man is an island'. If you go out to look for a friend you would not find one, but if you make yourself a friend you would find one. Friendship is not by force it is by choice. Don't let your friends choose you , you choose them and make sure you choose wisely.





A man of many companions may come to ruin, but there is a friend who sticks closer than a brother.

Happy Sunday

Leaders of Tomorrow

That is a statement we always heard when we were growing up, I guess for me and most of my friends, our teachers would say "you are the leaders of tomorrow", feels like tomorrow would never come. You know why it feels like it would never come because we have this obstructive constructive idea that tomorrow is a far fetched future but in real sense tomorrow of yesterday, is today, I mean now the very moment we live in, the very now, it is not tomorrow anymore. The future has come and we should all be leaders as we were told.

The future is now, don't wait for it to come. We have what it takes to make the future now, we are young, vibrant, resourceful, smart, literates, organizers, event planners, name it. What have you not in this generation? If you don't do it, who would? If not now, when? If not us, who? If you want something done, do it yourself, you can't keep waiting for that magical dream of tomorrow. You  have to face reality head on high, because the long awaited tomorrow is now, and now is the right time to act.



Make a conscious effort to do what is right today, so you would lead tomorrow.

Passion

What's Passion?
For me Passion is something. anything you do relentlessly, something you can do without getting tired something that makes you smile after a long hard day. My passion it is writing, what's yours? I would be writing on different topics and different subjects but all my write ups would be inspired and motivated by the Holy Spirit that's where I am connected to. I hope you get connected soon for you who is not, and for those who are connected I hope you stay head on to your source.

Yesterday, I met Omotola Jalade Ekeinde for the first time, she was invited to my school for our Second Career Forum and she gave an incredible, intriguing, interesting, motivating and captivating speech on Wisdom, Character and Self esteem just to mention a few. What I could denote from it all is that she had her connection to God, she did and always had. She said something on hit song that some musicians had their hit song early and that made them to the top why some others struggled with a hundred and one songs and still can never get popular, then it dawned on me. We all have that hit song of our careers. What ever it is you do there is something that should bring you to limelight, something you should be known for. something no one can do better than you, something you have the core competence and best practice of. There is a fire within burning and yearning to be seen and its smoke filling the whole air. You can not get the hit song if you are doing something you should not be doing.

What are you doing rightly? What can you do well? What would you do if you had 1 million dollars? What can you do 7 days a week? What can you do without much stress? What can you do for hours without getting tired? What can you do to add value to the society? If you can answer all this questions then I guess you are preparing yourself to start on the track of passion. It is a good race, do not relent atall;
start well, be determined and who knows what you would be tomorrow?

Do not wait to have all the money in the world before you start doing something you love. I love writing I started that since but today I took out time to inspire someone with my writing. I want to add value to my society, don't you want to add value too?  The time is now do not wait to be rich before you do something you love because what you love doing is what would make you rich! Start doing something you love today!!!
