I have had a very busy week and I am very very tired. I am really thankful that its Friday. Its quite logical really, when someone came up with the calendar, they slotted the weekend in because they knew that people needed to rest besides the fact that God also told them to put in a day of rest. It was actually an exciting week when one considers, my highlights;
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. After further research, it gets attributed to Spanish conquistador Hernán Cortés who ordered his men to burn the boat when they got to the battlefield.
I recently read that women do not get ahead in the workplace as much as men because they fail to self promote. And that got me wandering whether society has much to do with this. This is something I rarely like to admit but truth be told, society is generally patriarchal, men have the final say in the house, in the companies and in governments.
I have always thought that the greatest legacy that one can leave their kids is riches. And that was before I had kids. Now that I have kids and a bit more mature, I am beginning to think that I might be wrong. Yes, like any other normal parent, I want my kids to be super comfortable, I want them to have what everybody else is having and a bit more. I want them to go to the South of France for holidays, to have breakfast in Cape Town and supper in Cairo, to own penthouse suites in Manhattan, to ride the gondolas of Venice
There is something intrinsically wrong with rules, they beg to be broken. The moment one hears the word "rules", the next thing crossing their mind is, "How can I break them". The human mind is not designed to be confined by a set of rules, it needs to be free to explore by itself and decide what works for it, one thing it fails to process is that one lifetime is too short to go through all the experiences by one's self and decide what works and what doesn't. Seriously, if you are someone who really wants to get wealthy, how many times have you heard the rule above. I am sure a billion times right. But why aren't you wealth? Because you break this rule over and over again
It is very unfortunate that in Africa, we don't dream big enough. We are a people that are so used to receiving that we expect more than what we give back. We expect UN, WHO, developed countries to give us something...and in turn the people expect the government to do something for them. Then the [...]
Innovative ideas inspire me. There are things that some people do and you sit there and marvel at their grandeur. I am very embarassed to say that I came across TheMillionDollar Homepage recently and I was quite impressed by the story behind it. A kid called Alex Tew, 21 years old at the time came [...]
Courtesy of a Canva We live in the NOW generation. We want to hear a particular song NOW. We want to see a particular movie NOW. We want to read a particular book NOW. Because of internet and smart phones, everything is at the tip of our hands. It scares me to think that if [...]
