Happiness is the Key to Success

Happiness – a sacred word craved by so many, appears to be felt by a few.  A feeling that is everyone’s right but not everyone’s possession. A hidden gem with the potential to set lives aglow. Happiness is also an attitude. It is an algorithm that can only be encoded/decoded by qualified programmers. It is like a world, a huge universe ironically with few inhabitants. Happiness is a skill, only for the wise.

Opportunity: Don't Wait, Be Creative!

Sometimes last week around Ikeja GRA axis, I saw a guy with this inscription on his T-shirt 'Do not wait for your future, create it.' The deep meaning of these words didn’t sink in and I casually waved it off. Recently, I had a chat with a friend and she shared a picture of a lovely painting of the popular Beauty and the Beast story with me. I was pretty astonished – not at the quality of the painting – but at the fact that she has so much talent than I knew. I have always known her flair for artworks – she’s also a budding poet! But I never thought she is that blessed. So I inquired of her, “What else do you do that I do not know of?” She replied, “I’m a jack of all trade and master of none”. Then I advised her to pick one of her supposed numerous talents and groom herself on it.  Her response threw me aback, “I need a sign, a writing in the cloud… a letter from the Pope.”

4 Easy Ways To Set Your Priority Right!

The word priority is one not too strange to a common Nigerian man. It cuts across all age bracket and spheres of life. Safely used but poorly implemented. Why? Most people have failed to recognise true meaning of this word. We are going to play around the definition before going through its relevance to today's lesson.

TIME – The Essence of Fructuous Living

It has often been said that time and tides wait for no man. I first learnt about this phrase when I was in primary four from the literature book ‘Çhike and the River’ written by renowned Nigerian Author Chinua Achebe when Samuel Maduka Obi (SMOG) told Chike to hurry up and gather enough shillings (money) to cross the river Niger before the bridge was built across it.

Also, it is said that Mr Time is nobody’s friend. But I beg to disagree. Who would give every Tom, Dick and Harry equal chance at life? Only a true friend could. Who would provide us with an equal platform to thrive and make headway in life? Only a true friend could. How then is Mr Time no man’s friend?
Truth is, time can indeed be no man’s friend. In fact, it can only be friend with those who come to embrace the way it operates. True? Absolutely yes!

Before we proceed, let’s agree on some facts about time.

6 Vital Ways to be Resolute with your New Year Propositions

Wow! I'm so happy you made it! Happy New Year my friend. Glad to have you here.
I'm convinced this year is going to be the best yet for you. However, there are just a few things that could help you start the year on a great note (like you definitely want). 

I know we're now at that point where New Year resolutions would begin to fly in here and there. People would begin to make meaningfully (at times outrageous) pledges for the New Year. But the truth is, only a handful get to follow through with their propositions. This may be due to unforeseen negating circumstances or personal ineptitude. Research has shown that only 8% of people who make resolutions actually achieve them. So statistically, I bet you're one of those who didn't. Not to worry, you could join the elite list of the 8% mentioned above.
All you have to do is carefully read and follow through the points itemised below.
