We Won!!!(2)

Revolution has never come easy. Many even say it doesn’t happen without some degree of violence. While I do not totally subscribe to this line of thought, I am of the strong opinion that a type of violence is needed for a revolution to happen. It might be spiritual, physical or mental. Nevertheless, I strongly believe that when the end of a revolution is most in doubt, men have been known to look beyond the present and have a glimpse of our future. In other words, to imagine what is possible. To create the future with their most powerful weapons; their minds. It is this imagination that I chose to share with my readers today.

We Won!!! (1)

Interestingly many events have unfolded in the past few days in our land. We have seen desperation in action, mingled with dirty politics and widespread evil. It seems that as the election days are drawing nearer, it is becoming more evident that the shameless love of power has eaten deep into the fabric of our nations politics. Read more of this post

Change

Its amazing how easily this topic succeeded in bouncing off other topics from my mind within just a few days of ruminating over it. I was in the process of writing a post about the recent happenings in the murky waters called Nigerian Politics and what I believed about the on goings, when almost suddenly, I had to appear among a few friends to discuss the subject of change.

Questions contd.

Sequel to my last post ‘Questions’, I have decided like i promised to give a candid opinion which i think would be answers to the questions I raised. Over the past week, I have interacted as usual with a number of people, many of whom I respect and I have come up with some interesting views about the whole situation. Opinions have propped up, and I hope they are answers. I do not claim to be all-knowledgeable enough to give a solution, but I hope that you strongly consider these questions and compare your own opinions with mine. Critique it or support it, cos I stand to be corrected. Read more of this post

Questions

I had already almost concluded on what to write today. It was going to be a solemn post that would just rub on a few aspects. Then I decided to hang out for a while, hearing that a few of my friends were in the neighbourhood, I branched off to see them. Read more of this post

Understanding the times (1)

We live in interesting times. We understand, and can give an explanation to many things, but there are a lot more that cannot be explained. Most of us spend our days in a costly turmoil that is eating our souls up. We belong to a crises driven, reactive community of slaves and slave owners. Hmmm, strong words, yes I know but aren’t those words true? Think deeply, and you will realize that they are. But should this be the case? Read more of this post

The Sin of Negligence

hispanic-businesswoman-wearing_~BLD044646

I pick up my pen to write this article with a heavy heart. I have thought about my country long enough and hard enough that I sometimes come to a conclusion that nothing can be done. But even though my analysis has led to much paralysis, I still get to a point where I hear that tiny voice on the inside of me that tells me that if we believe and if we fight long and hard enough we will finally get to the promised land.

REVOLUTION-1

SS002943

I like to call myself an agent of change. Dedicated to promoting the cause of excellence in every sphere of my calling. This might sound too broad and not specific but hey, it sure doesn’t sound too bad for an opening  remark in a meeting in which I have to introduce myself. I am an agent of change. I love change, I am committed to personal development, I love to see things happen by vision, creativity, hard work, perseverance, positivity and commitment.

I am writing this post as a debut to a series that I am presently mentally developing.  I do not yet know what I would call it. Maybe revolution, build-up, change … well I don’t know yet. I am still putting my thoughts together. I am trying to see how I can make it effective. Its purpose is clear in my mind but its approach is still a little bit blurry. I am starting this post in the city of Abuja. I am in Abuja for one reason – to grow. But I have encountered a different level of growth. It is one that cannot easily be explained but I will do my best. Read more of this post

Just In Time

42-21687165

I took some time off to think about certain things recently and I came up with stuff that I unconsciously knew before but that were not really present in my conscious day to day state of mind. What has school done to us…?

Whoever actually came up with the concept of school never thought it would end up as a trap for the human soul. What do I mean by this? Many of us are glued to the conventions of school (and they are quite a number of such) that simply do not work in real life. Let’s look at some:

  1. Failure is a  mark/score
  2. We are all meant to do the same things
  3. My studies is my calling
  4. My salary is my earning
  5. Crooks own businesses
  6. It is bad to dare

Etc.

Well I may sound too extreme, but if you tell me that two of these are not applicable to you , I will call you a liar.

That is actually not the core reason for which I am writing this post. What I am really after is the amount of financial illiteracy that has plagued our schools. Read more of this post

Destiny

I am presently in the town i grew up in.Some have called it a dry town and some have diligently pointed out the greenness of this town for commerce and industry.Well, My aim is not to create an impression on you about ilorin, so hang on and see what i am up to. I am sitting in the lobby of one of the best hotels in the state(not a usual privilege for me yet) and i am writing based on my thoughts of the town since i got here yesterday and also based on the caption of a painting standing right in front of me now – DESTINY.
I have come to believe that our destinies are shaped not solely by some unseen hand(though i respect the touch of the divine)but also by our thoughts and actions Read more of this post
