the race …

I read an article recently that created in me an ambivalent feeling. I have, for some time now been an advocate of following your innermost being and neglecting convention. I know how many out there have become victims of the intimidation of their culture and social context, dumping their dreams to take on vocations and a life of emptiness and non fulfilment. A life that seems successful and flashy on the outside – fine from afar but far from fine. In other words, many have settled for commonplace, making excuses to themselves that seems to be justifiable reasons for their choice of a usual and common life. Our society, due to the years of social slavery, has settled for the security of the slave master or better put for the security of riskless living. No wonder we are where we are. We have developed into a conformist entity that regards anyone that is different from the pack as being radical, stubborn or downright foolish. I am not going to write about what our society has turned into due to its monkey-follow-monkey approach. I know my views are too radical for the average mind. I would rather have written about the beautiful and wonderful becoming of the fighter. The one who will choose to follow his/her heart despite the threat of failure or the voices of the cynics. The silent dreamer who hopes to one day unleash his dreams and potential on an already sick world is the one on which the hope for the better nation, a better world is hinged. This post however is in recognition of the existence of such mortals.

As a man thinketh …

You probably have heard that phrase `before. Maybe you read it somewhere or it was preached to you at someplace. Bottom line: its not new. Well for me, it is. I know that this might sound interesting . As a man thinketh, so is he. Its new to me not because I have never heard it before but because this is the first time in my life in which I am actually walking in its full consciousness. Many have argued to refute the claim that everything present in your life today is a product of your thought. I know how hard it is to trace your thinking pattern backwards especially if you are not used to doing so. But I also believe that by proper meditation, you can actually discern your innermost thoughts and how they have come to successful crystallize out in your life. Read more of this post

set it …

I have been contemplating how to write a post as this. It’s the beginning of a new year and it seems like we are here again with setting  goals and drawing up resolutions.  If you are reading this post, I congratulate you for entering into the most abundantly successful, profitable and explosive year in your life thus far. This year will be highly successful for me, I would make more money than ever before, build and strengthen meaningful relationships, develop as a person spiritually, mentally and physically, take part in and leverage on opportunities, travel the world and create opportunities for others to grow.  You might want to ask me why I am so optimistic about this year, why I seem to be hopeful even  in the face of massive economic troubles and downturns. Why I look like I am just some happy boy around the block with no clear knowledge of reality and probably a faded view of circumstances. Well, I wont blame you if you do… I know my optimism is getting dangerously controversial but I choose to leave it that way. Somehow I will manage to give you the answer that best and most truthfully suits any question that you might ask. The answer to the question; why are you so optimistic and hopeful, well, the answer: I don’t know. I don’t have any answer for it. I just feel it deep in my guts. I know it for sure and it has actually transcended the plane of hope to the plane of invincible and unwavering faith. A faith that makes me act and talk as though I have it all. That confident assurance that what I desire and have asked for is already mine – literally. That all I need to do to have it physically, is to develop enough value that I can give in exchange for it when it comes my way – in the hands of another. And that I will be a blessing to whoever comes with what I want because I will give him or her what they want in return. A total WIN- WIN resolution.  A faith that assures me that I do not have to manipulate or exert my will on others, but all I need do is make sure I think In a certain way and act in a certain way . I do not know what your fears are but I want to assure you that you don’t have anything to fear. Cast your cares on Him, the bible says. If you are sure with me and you want to act on it, or if you are not too sure but want to exert positive pressure on yourself for growth, join me in doing this: Read more of this post
