For the longest time in my life, this is a question that has always bothered me, I have been looking for the answer for so long without getting any closure. You find when I was in Lower Six, a few friends of mine and I started the school newspaper club, this is in 1999 when we had to write down the articles on paper, ask one of the day scholars to take the articles to town and get someone to type the articles for us. To pay the typist we had to organise cake sales and host a few functions to make the project sustainable.
From the moment we are born, it’s a race, it’s a race in this game called Survival of the Fittest. Have you ever noticed how parents are always bragging, “My baby is the smartest baby in any room”, “ Mine is the best pooper, great digestive system this one”, “Mine can walk upside down”...”Up side [...]
"A pioneer and his crew travelled to an unknown island. When they got there, the pioneer ordered his men to remove everything from the boat. After the boat was clean he ordered his men to burn the boat" this is the summary of a story I read in Think and Grow Rich.

Yes, I said that. And I will repeat, just because you are earning big money or you have prospects of earning big money doesn’t mean that you will become wealthy. There are lots of sports people that earned millions that are now broke, Kenny Anderson, Vin Baker, etc. Your salary and wealth are not necessarily [...]
I love Pinterest, anytime I have nothing better to do, I go to Pinterest. It is the greatest place to go for your Vision Board, its basically eye candy for tired eyes. When people wake up and go to their social media, be it Facebook, Twitter or Whatsapp, I wake up and go to Pinterest. [...]
Courtesy of Google I am not sure yet, whether I owe a "thank you"to Robin Sharma or a "you are an idiot" note. A few weeks back, I got very interested in listening to podcasts as I am sure you obviously know that I don't read motivational books anymore, with the assumption that you have [...]
'Hi guys, I have $500 to start a business, what do you guys suggest?"Anon on Facebook I am always shocked by such postings on Facebook. It really baffles my mind, how anyone can write such a statement to people that they don't know on a platform read by millions. Because my first thought is, are [...]
