I believe that what makes life and work tick is growth. Growth and change go hand in hand, more so, if it is positive. gbemiakande.wordpress.com started almost 3 years ago. Well, I should say that it was actually a means of putting my thoughts into words. I saw a few examples of thriving blogs around me (deoluakinyemi.com, topeakinyemi.com, busayoakanro.com etc) and I decided to go into action. I went on and off for a while. Often looking for the inspiration write. I was trying to feel the motivation before I started acting.

At some point however, I decided that rather than feel myself into action, I needed to act myself into feeling. Rather than wait for the motivation to act, I needed to act with the faith that the motivation will be found on the way. And guess what, that’s exactly what happened. The more I wrote, the more I wrote.

At some point also, I decided that what is worth doing is worth doing well. Doing well for me meant that I needed to move from a free site to a paid one. I nursed the idea for months. I felt I will loose the few readers I have if I decided to change my address (call me naïve, ignorant, whatever).

Well the summary of the story is this: I have started gbemiakande.com, and I’ve migrated all my posts there. Its been exciting. I have become more determined to adding value to you. I have become more motivated. The bad news is that I wont blog here anymore, but the good news is that I have a new address. Lol. gbemiakande.com is focused on helping you achieve your best in life and work. It will be an information hub where you can glean all the stuff you need to be your best.

I will like to invite you to gbemiakande.com to get the best of what I have to offer constantly. I hope to deliver on my promise. I want to see all my readers become the best they can be. Also, I will be open to feedback, praise and criticism. I will listen to you and most importantly, we will become friends.

Join me at gbemiakande.com.

Thanks for your time and I look forward to working with you to make this world a better place. gbemiAKANDE


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.

Questions (NOW IS THE TIME)

After two Blog posts on the above topic, I began to feel that my questions needed to be subjected to a more critical debate before postulating answers. I also started to question what the answers would do in the long run. Was I just kidding myself, or was it a futile and curious drive towards our present location? Well I felt that we would go all the way answering the questions, travel through the different topics and eventually arrive where we started from hopefully with a new way and new resolve to heal our land.

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


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


I have made a commitment to write at least one blog post per week without fail. This is largely due to my gross inconsistency in updating this blog and partly due to the fact that I need to always document my thoughts as perfectly as I can. Picking a topic to discuss on this blog has been some challenge for me. Not exactly because I do not have anything to say, but because I am not sure what thoughts are actually worth writing about.

After brooding over what would be my best topic of discussion this week, I finally settled on the one topic that has been in mind all through this last week – family. Read more of this post

The Sin of Negligence


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.

What if … ?

You could enjoy holidays of your dream rather than the ones you can afford?
Enjoy dream holidays every year?
Your dream holidays were paid for through a unique cash reward program?
So goes the preamble of a business opportunity I feel obliged to introduce to you for two reasons:
1. To get you to live your dreams
2. To partner with you in making it happen .
It’s WIN-WIN and its fun. So just key into it and let’s explore it.
It’s called Holidays and Cash. I remember I have written something about it earlier. But more than before I see the opportunity now for what it truly is. I believe it’s the most brilliant way of empowering individuals to enjoy a decent vacation and also earn some decent money, and I tell you its not like all the MLMs that you are used to.
I once heard a cliché that goes – No one moves forward by looking backwards.
You have probably done something similar to this and failed – I have too. You probably lost some money in it – I did too. Oh, you don’t know how to market – I don’t either. Sorry, you don’t understand the product – neither did I (until I read about it). I don’t have the time – I made time out of no time. I don’t know many people – I am an introvert. I don’t have the capital – I borrowed it.
Well I am searching for other excuses you may have – which I didn’t have at first. It’s up to you. You don’t need to join but you could if you want. I simply believe it’s good for you.
Thanks and all the best.



Freedom is not merely the opportunity to do as one pleases; neither is it merely the opportunity to choose between set alternatives. Freedom is, first of all, the chance to formulate the available choices, to argue over them — and then, the opportunity to choose.

I’ve been thinking of what is most appropriate to write this season. I would not like to bore you with facts and opinions that might water down the high spirits of the season. Read more of this post
