Cold World 2

Too many of us who lament about this rash earth and the problem of handling resentment from those vices that are closest in downing our integrity and pushing us to earthly temptations….do you want to keep struggling to conquer the moist world?! Trust me this world is a sacred place full with evil and deception. Ά mind that thinks for you, a voice that speaks to you, a power that keeps making things better to the best is what we desire..to some power like this comes in dwelling and willingly, or through spiritual utterances.
The world is so cold to me because those in power pull down the masses with their old mental strongholds and take control of the every with their wayward thought, imagination , and impulse..we also battle against ourselves: race, religion, education and this makes us ego-driven. The only recipe for this dish or to deal with this is to warm up the world by having ά dream nobody believes in and holding onto it through the hardest times. it involves handling resentment from those closest to you and keeping a good attitude even though this world makes that quite difficult because of its coldness.
Love is another recipe to warm up , the care and good intention we have for each other can make this absolute world a better play to dwell in.
Take a moment to think about it- bob marley sang “Let’s get together to fight this Armageddon(cold world)
So when the Man comes there will be no doom
Have pity on those whose chances grow thinner.. And grow in love.
Furthermore sometimes it feels like the cold world’s on most people shoulders Everything around them closing in, it’s starts to grow colder. It’s like they’re sitting on death row and waitin’ for conclusion. Rocked real messed up, their brains filled with much confusion,due to the coldness. Some even say “I never asked to be alive,Everyday it’s just a struggle even to survive,Dear please just wipe away the tears.’ll be better off when I’m gone.
In my own private Hell and left all alone…
But that’s not the solution, like I said in the first episode, everything would work out fine You can’t just stay out on your knees the revolution is outside.
You wanna make a difference get out and go and get it!

It definitely gets BETTER•

MICHAEL`

Needless to say, this is a random post tho. Advancing on my creativity and not hating on it; I have come to realise that”sparks of ideas” comes out from my blockus head as I try to think:). in your thought what does michael have to do with a sensitive post, as I said its a realisation of mine and I think sharing it would give you a little bit of information. As humans dealing with our day to day activities, we have different segments/zones we are attached to, be it for our business, leisure etc ..there are things I take note of, maybe am a little weird in my writings because you don’t read trends like this on blogs, but I assure you, this would make lot of sense as you press on.

MICHAEL- a biblical name, its a hot name. lol..yea the bible is a Hot book. As my imagination goes wider- I noticed that there is a micheal at every point, everything we see, hear, and watch- entertainment, sport, entrepreneurship…its like there is something in this name that brings out the best in people that bear the name….want to take you through a list of popularly known MICHAELS, their struggles and achievements:

MICHAEL JACKSON
He was so inspirational! I love doing the moon walk! Michael Jackson won’t live forever but his memory will!
Michael Jackson, Will Always Be The Most Famous MICHAEL Of All Time. Regardless If You Knew Him Or Not. That’s obviously besides the point here. When ever you hear.. Michael 9 times out 10 you think of the worlds greatest entertainer of all time. As the greatest entertainer all American Time/history. Talking about him hurts because whatever we say or do Isn’t going to bring him back. But at least he knows he’ll be missed. R.I.P MICHAEL JOSPEH JACKSON. YOU’RE MISSED EVERYDAY! August 29,1958- June 25,2009
.
MICHAEL JORDAN
The most popularly known basket baller of all time, an achiever,all respect given to him for his creative skills and inceptions, also a great entrepreneur He is known to be the only legendary sports icon

Not going too far, we can see in Nigeria our popularly known Michael Collins Ajereh born November 26, 1982, better known as Don Jazzy, is a Nigerian Multi award-winning record producer, singer-songwriter, musician, former CEO of Nigerian record label Mo’ Hits Records founded in 2004 and current CEO of the Mavin Records label which he founded in May 2012.

His resolve to succeed against all odds started when, while in America, he worked as a taxi driver and security guard to sustain himself in school. But turned out to be a billionaire.

MICHAEL ANGELO
Artist of all time..

ANGEL MICHAEL
We all know this, I really don’t want to go into his details..
My reason for this post is to bring out the imagination and self esteem in us, our names. we can build a great generation with us, and making our names a lead point for achievement and creating a lead path that follows our names..if you notice at this part of the world , every one wants to name his child michael because of what they’ve seen, heard , but the success determination, doesn’t just lie in the name, it lies in the self-esteem and individual..so make yourself useful, so you and your name would be a lead point for people success.
Also note every name is a blessing as you use yourself, this doesn’t mean you should change your name to michael or decide to give your unborn children Michael..lol……..it really just depends on you…..
Have a Fruitful week:)…..

The Den SAGA!!

“Honey, you must finish this food o” mum said to dad jokingly, I smiled and gazed at them lustfully because I was still surprised that their love still stayed with them after 26 years of marriage.
My mum was a beautiful, wonderful business woman, my dad was cute and short though. They lived happily, that was my joy as their son, the first son for that matter, I always prayed for a good family as theirs. We were four children, two boys and two girls; this just made it a perfect family.
Well let’s get down to the focal of this story, that’s me, the First Son, the Tale Teller, I’m Trevor Adabor. Describing myself I would say I’m beyond the word handsome, athletic physique, 6’1 tall, brown eyes, intelligent, I was on the fence spiritually because today I could go spiritual, tomorrow you’ll think I was the devil’s incarnate. Apparently, I was from a wealthy home, had a car of my own (one, some of my friends’ parents can’t dare to have.), had the latest gadgets of our century. I was in the football team of my university. My siblings were so proud of me; I was their role model in the making because I was excellent in everything I engaged in. I just finished my first degree from the Great University of Abuja with a First Class Degree in Mechanical Engineering. What more could a guy want?
Definitely my National Youth Service Corp.(NYSC) was next on my life agenda. I had lived in Abuja all my life, wanted to be close to my lovely family and cruise around town with freedom, so I runsed my NYSC placement to the Abuja metropolis.
I started my NYSC at the third quarter of the year 2010, made a couple of friends during the first week of camp orientation, including the good, the bad and the ugly. The guys I stayed with were boys and men at the same time; they were lively, had yarns and were very current with when it came to global and local news whether politics or entertainment related. The man part of them was that as playful as they were, as their daily theme was YOLO – You Only Live Once, they all had very credible future plans.

As there is nothing with absolute perfection, so was my beautiful life. This strange But, was the absence of a loving girlfriend to put the cherry on my cake. This happened all through my university days. Sad and strange, yeah? Well, this But led to a great mishap that was set to change the course of my destiny. As was bound to happen, I approached and was approached by a lot of ladies, ranging from the beauty without brains, to those with inner beauty to the rich-but-not-too-presentable to even the gold-diggers! I mean, what handsome, brilliant and rich dude gets rejected by a gold-digger?! I had this friend then, who wasn’t even up to my standard by any means, but he had several girlfriends who flocked around him like ant camping at a sugar site and the funny thing was most of them profess true love for him. The girls in my life were either after my money, brains or wanted my handsomeness as a trophy, always telling me about how they like me, but I was tired of the like and friendship zone. I didn’t want to spend on any girl who wasn’t in love with me and vice versa, because I was interested in love, someone to call, take out and the reciprocity would be there but I didn’t find. This was when I came to the realization that sometimes money can’t even find you love not to talk of buying it.
Some nights I would sit on my bed to think if my problem was hereditary, but my parents cleared that without a doubt, other times, I would think I was gay because the last time I had a girl friend that loved me, was way back in Primary Four Class! Imagine! Fine boy like me o. But even my dead body can’t be caught pants down with another dude; I love girls to say the least. My love for them was like the 5&6 relationship, if only they were the right ones. I couldn’t figure what was missing, but the absence of this special person in my life made me focus properly on my education.

I became so bothered I had to open up to one of my pals in camp Prince was what he was called. After telling him my disheartening story, all he could do was burst out with laughter, if he wasn’t supposed to be my solution provider, I probably would have beaten him… I mean, I was discussing a serious matter of life and death and he felt I was telling a joke! Kmft! After turning my ordeal into a “Crack Ur Rib” session, he asked ‘why are you worried? Must you have a girlfriend?!’ he continued ‘why don’t you have a fuck buddy or buddies?’ I replied I don’t want that, I want love, he sighed and said “ok I’ll arrange love for you if that’s what you want … what are friends for?” he said. I was relieved because I trusted his parole and I know what his capabilities are, when it came to women matters. “You the boss” I said, has he left the room.

On a Wednesday evening I received a phone call and the person said ” hello love” I dropped my phone, checked the number properly, was trembling in fear. I haven’t heard that in a while, I continued the call, the lady said my friend Prince gave her my Phone Number, Blackberry Pin and bla, bla, bla.. It was a cool conversation and before i dropped the call, she promised coming to visit me one of these days. The next week she came visiting, we’ve talked over the phone quite a number of times and we were getting to know each other much better; thank God for blackberry. When I eventually saw her in person, she was dope, my kind of lady, tall and elegant with hi-tech fashion sense, quite different from her display pictures on Blackberry Messenger. I stood with my pupils turning into love symbol like that of Tom’s or like Cupid just had a 100% target at my heart. It’s quite funny, right? The problem here was that she was 17 years older than me; she was a cougar looking like a Sweet Sixteen. At first, I wasn’t bothered because I saw her as a good friend and someone to talk to. We went out on various occasions, talked about her previous marriage, presently she’s divorced, we flowed and gisted about a lot of random stuffs. With the way things went smoothly between us, she was ready to sacrifice her time for us despite her busy business schedule. And then, she said it, “I like you” and I was like “OMG! Not this like-zone again!” Surprisingly, I was okay with it. As time went by, our friendship became stronger, I was falling for her, I couldn’t believe myself, I could tell she was in love with me too, She calls me, texts and a lot more, she even got me all sorts on my birthday. Well this was what I was looking for, Love, Affection and Commitment. We were so deep into each other, I could proudly say I knew I was in love, in love with someone old enough to be my aunt, I still didn’t care. I doubt if I could thank Prince well enough, but I knew I owe it to him, for such a great favour. However, this arrangement had to be kept between the both of us, to prevent unnecessary rumours and side talks coupled with friends that might want to go all SU on me. So anytime I was asked who she was, I just say she’s my mummy’s sister and we were running a business package together because she was seen too often with me, I must say.

I and my Sugar-Aunt kept in touch with each other no matter the distance, we displayed our love particularly on BBM. In spite of our outings, we never had sex and never spent the night at each other’s place. To me, it was a good start for us, especially for a platonic relationship like ours. I was so overwhelmed by the love I had for her, that my every thought was clouded by her. I had her on my I-pad as my wallpaper and trust me; I was beginning to lust for her. This was about the fourth month of my service NYSC.

On Fridays, after work, we go clubbing, so we decided to go clubbing as was on our schedule for this particular Friday. Our club for that night was club DEN.
I never knew what this woman was into; I wasn’t concerned that I knew nothing about the sort of business my lover was into, in fact I cared less! All I knew was that she was a well-to-do business woman who lived comfortably and had almost everything at her disposal. Anyways, that was by the way.
So we got to the club, had a few drinks and did lots of dancing, she was a great dancer. She gave me this piercing look that was not hard to notice even though my vision was getting blurry due to too much alcohol in the system, the look was directly into my eyes, like she wanted more of me! There and then, I knew tonight was the NIGHT! We had fun to the fullest, from the twisting and whining. To the caressing and smooching… couldn’t help it. Would say I had loads of fun with her. It was almost certain I was going to pass the night at her crib. I was beginning to dance in a funny manner then she planted a kiss on my lips and said ‘you awesome’, I blushed and said ‘thank you’…

It was 3:00am on Saturday morning, we weren’t tired but we just thought to call it a night (it was the earliest we left a club since we started dating) and headed to her very expensive-looking bungalow. As we drove back to her place, all I could think of was the stunning sex I was going to have, thoughts of different sexual positions I was dying to practice with her were all in my head, I wasn’t a virgin, but it’s been ages! We got home before I could think of the third position, we started undressing ourselves while kissing until we got to the bedroom and then we had highly intensified rounds of Sex! We were like two passionate horses trying to out-do the other. Suddenly her phone rang; she got up quickly like she was expecting the call, went to her bag, answered the call and went to the bathroom. I lay on the bed naked and smiled like a Boss, I had that Jokers kind of smile on, robbing my palms together, waiting for her to be done so we could continue our game, as there was no winner yet. She took longer than expected in the bathroom for a midnight call, I mean, who calls an old woman for that long at this time… except she was a Call Lady, no, I thought to myself, doubt that, she couldn’t be and brushed that off my mind. Out of boredom, I got up to take my phone to check my messages, when I overheard the most shocking four-word phrase of my life… “I CAN’T KILL HIM” she said, “I’ve fallen deeply in love with this one and I won’t sabotage this” she continued… I thought I was dreaming… then she slightly screamed “NO!”, there and then I started thinking normally again, was still listening to the conversation, she continued “if anything happens to him I will deal with you”, which meant, if she doesn’t kill me some else would probably kill me… “OMG!!” I started sweating, regretting and shivering…
Immediately, without thinking whether or not I would be noticed, I started wearing my clothes to take off. As I went out, I eavesdropped one last time, and I heard her say “I’ll look for another guy I’ll make love to, for the rituals…” *Jeeezzz!!* Now, it dawned on me that I was in a big mess; I quietly picked my remaining stuffs, switched off my phone and zoomed out of the house without hesitation. Luckily for me, I parked my car outside her compound so she wouldn’t notice the car’s noise as I left…

As I drove to my house, not my apartment this time but to my family house, it was already morning 6:15am, thank God I runsed my NYSC, if I were to be in another state there would have being no Safe House to run to. In my deep thoughts, I asked myself “did my friend Prince know about this?”, “what was I thinking When I started this?”, “was I jazzed?”, “could she really be in love with me?”. Something within me answered “hell no! I was stupid and impatient!”. Another part of me asked, “who knows what she would possibly do to my manhood now that we had sex!?” I became more scared and burst into tears because I really felt empty; like an important part of me had left. As I got home, everyone was surprised and happy to see me again as it had been long I came here though I was to come see them in two weeks time. As I entered the house, I made a fake smile on my face and said I needed to see My Mama urgently…

In tears, I told Mummy privately because I could confide in her, in shock she burst in tears too and said a few words of prayer for me and we planned my travel to the City of Lagos, and from Lagos to the States to get myself back, put things in order and stay away from my sugar mum to avoid death threats and all the associated scary situations that might follow suit. Mummy had to tell My Dad about it after I had gone because it would have been hell for me, but she couldn’t tell my younger ones because it would break their hearts that I disappointed them. I got rid of that SIM, the phone, changed contact details and blocked her from all my social sites.
Started all over, kept thinking with regret as I couldn’t even finish my NYSC program or get the certificate. I pity my mother because I made her cry and think too much at her old age…You know how mothers get all emotional and soft. I don’t blame her; I’m guilty with my stupid, lustful and irresponsible act. Alas, I had wasted a year in my not-too-long life.
Presently, I’m in the states still trying to figure things out. I curse the night I went to Club Den that has kept my life in a Den of Mystery… with the regret of having an affair with an ostensible cougar! What if she knew my where about, what if she could control me from the reflection of a black water pot mixed with her menstrual blood and my sperm??

silence »

One of the best schools and probably the most popular school is the school of SILENCE! I hear it left, right and centre that silence is GOLDEN! Even you hear it also. Well is silence golden? Yea it is literally and expressively; because a fool is considered wise, if he keeps silence. As humans, we have deep frustrations that makes us rage, develop our misery unnecessarily because of not studying well in the school of silence. Ά wise man said there is limit to human endurance; which goes forth to a lame man- there is a limit to break the silence code but the main task is how can we try not to break the silence code? Because of the people we have around. Lol .There are two type of silence I categorised which are:
•silence to frustrations
•silence for excellence.
To elevate and talk more on silence to frustration I must confess that we have annoying, I mean really annoying people, maybe our friends, relatives, neighbours … And this makes us kill silence and act dramatically. For scaling through this stage, you need silence and a level of understanding that could go a long way to avoid unnecessary display of character. Silence shows a level of humility geometric ally. Also note: that silence doesn’t signify you a fool or slow- Wisdom.
Silence of excellence Car lyle Thomas: “silence is the element which great things fashion themselves”. He also wrote -“when the oak is felled,the whole forest echoes with its fall, but a hundred acorns are sown in silence by an unnoticed breeze.
Silence-“the pause” its good to have ά season of silence(a pause) in most things we do in life; most people have been partackers of mishaps because they couldn’t pause for some minutes, some ideas have been stolen from some people because they can’t “PAUSE”-silence! Talking out secrets and ideas unnecessarily in this cold world! Well, I buttress by saying that practically the great things of your life will be born during your stay in your school of silence!#quiet time needed.
If you also take note the important/realistic decisions of your life are made silently! “Destiny is made of silence” act silently to elevate yourself, be silent and confident but don’t act ά FOOL.

silence doesn’t mean Foolishness..Always remember.
Happy New Week:):*

LIFE` FLY YOUR PLANE.

What is so spectacular about life? Well so many things are, but definitely I can’t go into them in this post, we keep discovering and passing through- so questions arise like why are we in life in the first place? And trust me I have come up with so many answers, in fact I have even contradicted my self in my research..
In this life rules are made, and rules are broken; the same adversity that causes some to break down causes others to break records. Think about it! Well problems surfaces this life today, but you can’t just change the problem because its not what happens to us, but what happens in us that makes the difference. In ά rigorous| successful life every man and woman has ά handicap, ά setback or problem that becomes an excuse……………..”BUT IF YOU EXCUSE YOURSELF, YOU ACCUSE YOURSELF”.so to move forward in this life there are principles to follow to maintain ά leveled construction and I tag it “FLY YOUR PLANE’ am sure you are wondering what he has to offer, but trust me its ά soul banger.lol
In life no matter what is happening and no matter the distraction, don’t forget to fly the plane! Ralph Waldo wrote?-“Ά hero is no braver than an ordinary man, but he is braver five minutes longer” Hear Winston Churchill again “if you are going through Hell, keep going, Don’t Stop! There is always victory. This life more so is hell in its surface but as ά straight human you need to concentrate on your landing gear so as to make ά successful land. This is just ά short phase to inspire the wise ones because its through the pain of confronting and resolving the problems of life that we grow. Isn’t it? Ά life without trails will land you in hell because your flesh is so weak……..

There is always ά chance to make life easier;)

YOUR DREAMS ——-» START SOMETHING!

“Please start something” they said!?…fellas still this is a great day for another great inspiration, to start something that could elevate you above your dreams. And when you realise, the sky is not your limit its your starting point… This also gives me a good illustration of a story a friend told me about his uncle.
My friends uncle owns a large estate that contains a lot of houses at lagos – victoria island, back then when he was about to purchase the land in that under-developed area which was covered with bushes his friends and even relatives told him, he had no sense of reasoning; why he would decide to purchase a land and build in the bush, reasons were unknown to them. In spite of those discouraging words, his uncle had a dream which none of them knew about and went ahead, purchased the land and built houses on it.
Today the story is different. We all know what it means to have a house on the island. LOL. He started something! Should they decide to sell the landed properties there, he will become a multi-millionaire on face value. NOTE: anything that will produce great results in the future will suffer from mutual battles| discouragement.
If you have great ideas to start something or have already started and you are getting discouraged then never forget what Willard Marriott wrote ” good timber does not grow with ease, the stronger the wind the stronger the trees”.
Even looking at the world greatest PoP star *Micheal Jackson* in one of his single debut he states it clear that ” you gotta be starting something” no matter what it is to achieve that supreme dream. Your star is wonderful, your pathway may be full of wonderful scars; that’s When I thought and realised that “God does not wish us a smooth journey, but wishes us a safe journey” most of us don’t get it, but you just have to.
don’t let the sanballias, o’reilleys, and schelliengers of this world stiffen your vision. Resist depression/self pity.

This is a new week, go start something and keep going with your dreams! 🙂

No-title^

I’v been a reader of so many blogs, yet still wanted to write my own and express the little vital informations, ideas stalked up in my head. had all plans, sketches and ‘what would I say’- was waiting for the right time! LOL. Too many of us are waiting for someone to come along and tell us what to do next; not knowing whatever we do or neglect to do always catches up with us. Wanting to create my blog, had known my ability, but didn’t understand the assignment, it was until I understood the assignment , I was able to write and share ideas with people and friends.
Where is this taking us to..well there must be a balance between careful planning, faith, and understanding. Yet, if you talk to other professing people or friends, you might think otherwise. For example talk to some people who are unemployed and they’ll tell you, I’m just waiting for the lord to provide ά job. That’s fine but have you sharpened your job skill? Do you have the understanding.!
You say I’m not going to that route, I’m just waiting on God. ‘Oh, really? Then you won’t mind getting hungry for a while then. The old motto for soldiers during the revolutionary and cold war applies here “trust God but keep your powders dry!” Place your life in Gods hands , but stay already.
Nowadays the fetish, Christians, pagans Ąπϑ all categories would say” I trust in God” even though many of them don’t even believe he exist or not. The key point here is that you must do all you can to prepare yourselves understanding that the favour you need comes from above. More so, to walk with faith doesn’t mean you stop thinking, planning, taking advice, and self-correction and discipline. Ąπϑ it definitely doesn’t imply becoming lazy or apathetic. What a distortion of biblical faith!
•trust God for your finances, but don’t blow your budget.
•trust God for safety in a car but don’t pass on ά blind curve.
•trust God for your health, but don’t chain-smoke, staying up half the night and subsist on potato chips and carbonated drinks. Don’t act foolishly expecting help from above to bail you out Wђέή things go amiss, that isn’t faith, its presumption.

rebuke ά wise man and he’ll love you, rebuke a foolish man, and he’ll hate you

Faith, understanding and careful planning go hand-in-hand. They always have and they always will..

TGIF:) Have a wonderful weekend!!!!

Confidence•

You can spot them in any team. They have that special ”something” that makes them distinct. ‘Thinking’ what is it? The Direction- The belief that they have, the ability to do things well or deal with situations successfully. The awareness of their own abilities! Their motive! Their present and past success ! Their ability to make things count in their own fate! In a word-CONFIDENCE.
Most people think that the great successful individuals in the world are just naturally supremely confident. People like Tony Robbins, Donald Trump, Jack Canfield, Tom Cruise etc. Many think “If only I have the confidence and self belief of them, then I’ll can be just as successful as him/her”. People believe that these successful people are naturally confident, 100% sure of themselves and do not have any doubts.
That is not true. No matter how smart, successful, talented or capable someone is, no one is absolutely free of doubt. There is the possibility success and failure in every situation. Michael Jordan has doubts, so does Einstein, Leonardo Da Vinci, Nelson Mandela and everyone else.
Confidence is also taking your present situation, what ever challenge you are facing; what ever difficulty you might be in or you have encountered; what ever chronic condition that wears you down or keeps you subjected; or whatever has smashed your dreams or what ever negative factor that has made you admit under pressure- saying : ‘I can’t do it’ , ‘I can’t cope’ has made you loose that confidence. As soon as you say those words, you are:
•contradicting the promises of Gods in your life.
•limiting yourself.
So therefore keep up to the challenge. In an ado you’ll be out of it smiling with the confidence built in you. Confidence means having the ability to stand up to any test.
There are also pressing questions asked. About two weeks ago was talking to a friend and he said he wants to be more confident like 100% confidence in everything and asked what he could do!, I smiled and told him ‘never to throw away his confidence’ he was suprised and asked HOW? I further explained by letting him know that by getting more confidence he could loose the initial beneficial confidence in him, and the confidence for evil could refrain or erupt because in certain occasions over-confidence kills.

To maintain a skilled positive confidence, do these three things:

1. Surround yourself with confidence-builders not confidence-murderers or busters: no confidence could give you ”The Charlie Browns Complex” one day lucy put her hands on her hips and said to charlie ‘ you charlie are a full-ball on the line-drive of life! You are a 5th putt on the 18th green! You are a dropped rod and a reel in the lake of fire. Have I made myself clear?? She asked. No wonder Charlie Brown struggled! Don’t let anybody wash your confidence away with their busty tounge. If you want to be confident surround yourself with the people who bring out the best in you.

2. Establish your worth according to Gods value system, not men value system or the World’s:
God demonstrated your importance in two major ways
*He created you in his own image- which means you have creative abilities.
*He sent his son to redeem you. That makes you priceless
Those two unconditional truths should be the enduring basis of your confidence.

3. Quit comparing yourself with others: in my last post, which talks about value and self esteem, brings an intermediate relevance to confidence. Comparism only leaves you goalless and if para venture you achieve those goals, it comes along with problems, and it makes you feel rather inadequate . You are more than equal to the challenge.

Discover your gift, develop it, and use it confidently 🙂

Your self worth is a function of how you value yourself. The value given to something shows the worth of it. Value what you have and who you are, that’s a key stone to greatness. To build your self worth you must first discover your values and then make up your own definition of success.. When you compare yourself to others, you are captured by the spirit of Korah in the bible! When you envy others then what happened to Korah may happen to you! You probably already know that society places excessive value on the outward appearances of success, such as money, material possessions, physical appearance, marital status, career and so on. In contrast, little consideration is ever given to the loftier values of a person, such as love, integrity, kindness, emotional intelligence, forgiveness and inner balance, when defining one’s success. This means that we have a warped definition of success based largely on outward appearances, which really results in a warped sense of self worth, which is Wrong.. When you refuse to value yourself, you are stagnant, then the earth may swallow you up- you will be lost in the crowd!
How you value yourself is a reflection of how you value others. For instance, if you have placed an undue value on money as a symbol of success, then in your estimation, people with more money are to be admired more than those with less. Ironically, the very people who you admire most are also the people you envy most when their bank balance out does yours. Therein lies the paradox – whatever you admire most, you must also envy. In other words, you can never really be happy for those you admire most when your own self worth is based on outward appearances.
In a nutshell, building your self worth is fundamental to achieving real success in your life. Forget what society tells you about what it means to have succeeded, and endeavour to create your own definition of success based on those human qualities and virtues that you value most. Make it your goal to become a successful human being by inwardly living and outwardly displaying those virtues you admire most and you will find no competition in your way. When you have built your self worth based on your own definition of success, you will find that all those material things or outer appearances that once seemed out of reach no longer define you, and that they paradoxically now flow freely towards you. This is what it means to have succeeded in your way.
no wonder Ralph Emerson wrote: “Make the most of yourself, for that is all there is for you”.Don’t hate yourself! Don’t wish you were somebody else!Make the most of who you are Ąπϑ what you have!! God bless you!!

GEMS FOR SUCCESS

BE A SERVANT
what does a servant do? Well he does “the next task” he does what is avaliable and ready for him to do. Those without such an attitude resist getting their hands into successful paths. Most people don’t have such attitudes because of the resistance of getting their hands messy. They never want to get involved in the messy part of working with people. They always want the polish part. But the tough stuff behind the stage? Well give that to someone else. And with the mindset that a servant is a failure, the adventure of life into success comes through so many failures and setbacks.”Failure should be our teacher not our undertaker. Failure is delay, not defeat. Its a temporary detour, not ά dead end. Failure is something we can avoid only by saying nothing, doing nothing, and being nothing”. However God uses our failures and setbacks to cultivate within us as servants for earthly and heavenly prosperity. This is step one into the path of success, it’s all part of the process……

ADD A LITTLE EXTRA
When I was in Higher institution, I came to realised that the top-class students academically had nothing really special in them, they jus had a little secret which is “adding extra” efforts. Step two; Sometimes ago, Dr Ebere Good luck Jonathan, now the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria in a speech said;” the difference between an ordinary person and an extraordinary one is the little or extra which the extraordinary person puts into his life which the ordinary one does not.
Down in history, we have seen men and women stand out of the crowd by just the extra they put in or done thus making them extraordinary persons.
Conversely, a little slip can make an extraordinary person become ordinary. “Higher positive achievements seem to be connected with extra. Positive actions. Successful men and women keep moving. they make mistakes, but they don’t quit”
Add a positive extra effort in your doing and you cannot be ignored by your generation!!

Cold World!!!

The Question is how do we survive?Why are we created in this Cold World?In a general phase, different measures and strategies are implied in dealing with the condemnation and battle of this world; and this battle is that amongst humans(race,religion,power etc) a greek saying- its a cold world out there and when the fire goes out, its good to know someone with a match. As Humans it is diversely impossible to know how it started and how its going to end, because the human super power is limited.
More so with the fate and curiosity of man, we always advance and make knowledge and understanding the order of the day. This World being described as a cold World started from the very beginning Ie creation of Man…Exile, sin and condemnation was established leaving the Warm world absolute…
Presently the Evolution of the super powers have made the world complex and with such the development of weapons, nuclear Weapons made all stand on their feet..its really a cold World, mass suffering ,malnutrition, diseases, and as most children grow It’s too much pain, it’s too much freedom at the same time, what would dy do with a World like this?
It’s not the way they plan it, it actually happens, sometimes its the way the World wants it..Girls and boys keep lining up to see if they can measure up
If They look good and if they feel wild, but it won’t never be enough
You say you’re really hurting, at least you’re feeling something, it either hurts you or u feel good in this Cold World..the major solution to this World is to lean on the God that Created The World, he surely has something in stock for us..Furthermore We can hope and we can pray that everything would work out fine
You can’t just stay out on your knees, the revolution is outside:)

So much is at stake

If we knew that one decision that we could make, that would be profoundly and positively life transforming, wouldn’t we all make it?Humans as we are, limited by our inability to foretell the future with certainty; owe it to ourselves to do so much as is doable despite this innate limitation the “KNOWN UNKNOWNS”.

A great man-Donald Rumsfeld once said “In life there are things we know we know they are KNOWN KNOWNS; and there are things we know we do not know they are KNOWN UNKNOWNS, and there are things we do not know we do not know they are the UNKNOWN UNKNOWNS”.

Although back then his words sounded like mumble jumble, however over time have become revered as wise words that depict the reality humans grapple with on daily basis throughout a lifetime.Since things we think we know, even when we are wrong do not alarm us, and things we are ignorant about are not causes for anxiety; after all ignorance they say is bliss;

I ask then – are we truly limited by things we do not know? Maybe not, after all humans are largely bestowed with the capacity to unravel the Unknown, by seeking to know.

In making monumental decisions however, a lot of courage, cautious planning, innovation, as well as emulating successful decisions of others are needed to take the giant leap of faith into the Unknown; while being mindful that all the facts needed to make any decision will often not be laid before us in whole before we do. Yet we are left with no choice but to make a decision, because our indecision in itself is a decision that will be impactful on the eventual outcome of our lives.

 Given, many factors in life are outside our control…

HOWEVER a few are within our sphere of influence, such as where to study, what course to study, and how studying such courses fit into our career plans. It is no gainsaying that Studying Abroad is an achievable, very rewarding and life transforming decision, perhaps that might be THE ONE right decision you need to make to secure that future you really desire to have; we will never know if you do not try.

The Good news is that, it is not as financially demanding as you might have been made to believe.

Discovering us is just the beginning…

 Why should I Study Abroad?

Globalization is an inevitable phenomenon, regardless of where one tilts on this issue i.e. for or against.

Technology which is fast becoming part of our everyday lives, suggest that increasingly trade, and social interactions transcends national borders and geographical locations.

This trend though comes with its merits and demerits, which has led to more nationalist movement in some western countries for example Brexit in UK, voting in President-Elect Donald Trump in USA to mention but a few. Notwithstanding these movements, no one has argued against globalization in and of itself.Correct me if I am wrong, all I have heard,  is that citizens want their leaders to protect their interest more, and regulate businesses or other organizations developing international influence or starting operations on an international scale in or outside their country; such that their source of livelihood is not taken away; justifiably so!!!

Well rather than stand aloof or argue for or against an unavoidable global trend, one can decide to take advantage of this situation ‘we’ as humans have found ourselves, or better still have imposed on ourselves through our innate desire to roam the world uninhibited, and interact with whoever we choose to, wherever.

What better way can one do this than studying outside the shores of one’s country – STUDYING ABROAD.

Studying is a means to an end, the end from a parochial point of view, being meeting one’s needs and contributing to societal development. For one to achieve this with ease, in our ever shrinking world, thanks to a more integrated world economy; new information and communications technology (ICT); the evolving international knowledge network; the role of the English language, and other forces beyond the control of academic institutions (UNESCO 2009); studying in a foreign country is surely  a valuable experience that will help keep abreast of these occurrences for a life time, as education is more than studying within the four walls of an institution !!! get in touch with us today.

Time and People

Time flies by fast,
People change with time.
And time changes people.

Days are gone when you wake up in the morning,knock on your neighbours door just to say Good morning and probably have a refreshing breakfast with them.

Time has passed when children act as children in the house.
Now children call the shots.

Time has passed when truth and honor was the way of life. Now lies and evil makes it easier for man and his operations.

Time has pass when people loved to help,Now help is a precious rare Gem.

Dreams

Our minds are toyed with its existence.
Our feelings hurt with its intentions.
Our hopes orchestrated with its Penetration.
Our self esteem highlitened with its appearances.
Our world an El Dorado with its promises.

It appears when you least expect it.
It confuses your whole being while you asleep.
It creeps into your conscience with faked love.
It diverts your mind from the thought of life.

Ebiere

It was midnight,the crickets were chipping,the bats were playing hide and seek with their prey,the goats in our yard who always made their unpleasant noise were deep in sleep .My parents who retired early to their cubicle they called a room because of their marital ‘rites’ were also snoring loudly,I had known what they were doing any time they went to bed early some months back,mama and papa left the door slightly open on that day and am guessing it was to much excitement,mama was making noises as if she wanted to catch a bird in the air but couldn’t,any ways,I kept the information privy to myself…..my father’s snort was the loudest,mama always teased him that he snorted like a deranged cow and it always seemed to get him annoyed even when she would reply him by saying that she was only teasing him,the way they played and showed their love always seemed to amaze me because they were a bit gone in age,but their show of affection towards each other was still very fresh and real,I always told myself that I would want to become like them someday,even better…but my own man would not be a fisherman like papa,my man would be macho,very tall and handsome who would be living in the town with many ‘big big’ cars and houses in the white man’s country,those were just my childish thoughts,youthful exuberance I would say.
        I had planned my move over and over again in my tiny little head as mama Zikere who plaits my hair every sunday in preparation for school on monday always called,she was not a fine woman per se,but she had a wonderful heart,her husband died of diabetes,it was a blow too much for her to take,I used to think she was not sane as she would sit beside the door to her house and talk to herself non-stop,sometimes for hours,there are times she would become so depressed,she would wail and then my mother would run to her and ask her why she was tormenting herself so bad,and she would ask if she also wanted to die and leave her daughter Zikere all alone in this evil world,zikere was my best friend and we always played together,we laughed,fought and gossip ed together,we were like sisters as we happened to be the only children of either of our parents,I felt bad I did not tell her about my plans because I was afraid that she would dissuade me from going on with it,I wanted a good life,despite the fact that my parents tried their best to provide all for me,it wasn’t easy because papa toiled day and night in the Great Odi River trying to catch fish so mama would set them for sale in her small stall she had in the market,she would roast some for me to eat and tell me to stay at home and play that I did not need to work because I was their jewel,it was while I was growing up that I got to know that my parents were childless for 12years before having me,they went everywhere but were told the same thing ‘the both of you r fine,don’t worry yourselves,the babies would come very soon’,fortunately,mama’s in-laws were far dead so she had no one to make life unbearable for her because of their childlessness. If they ever got to know what I had planned,it would have pained them deeply because they felt they did everything possible to make life comfortable to an extent for me,but due to the insatiable nature of man as Mr fine man who was my history teacher would say,I wanted more,I wanted to see the world,I had a certain longing for adventure and I made up my mind to go all the way and nothing,absolutely nothing was going to stop me.
          Since papa came back to the house slightly drunk,I used the opportunity of telling him to leave the door open that I would lock it after I finished with the goats,I had finished feeding them a while back but this was just a ploy to make him leave the key so I would carry on with my plan,my little strategy worked out because papa left the key and went inside to meet mama,I later got to know that it was their anniversary because I was suprised he was tipsy as he never drank,maybe papa Ebiwari who was his best friend took him to the local beer parlour near Kolokuma junction. As I opened the door,I got nervous,mainly because I did not really think deep of the step I wanted to take,I summoned courage but that squeaky sound the door makes seemed louder this time because it was deafening to my ears in this instance or so I thought,I immediately froze with the hope that the sound would not wake up my parents,it did not as I heard them snore again,I always wondered how they managed to sleep with each other snoring so loud side by side,my heart sank once more how they would feel when they woke up in the morning looking for me when I was gone,I felt bad but determined to go.I had already taken my little ‘ghana must go bag’ to a nearby bush near the express earlier in the day so I would not be noticed in the case of any ugly uprising,this was done with utmost secrecy as I was discreet about it with the plan to say I was sent to drop the bag somewhere by my mother if anyone asks me on the way so that they would not be suspicious of me. Immediately I stepped out of the house,I ran as far as my legs could carry me,anyone who saw me would have been convinced that I was been pursued by ‘nomukimi’ the mad woman or some other evil spirit,but no I was running away from poverty,from my childhood memories,from my heritage,from my identity,I was not a coward,inshort I was far from it,I had no inclining as to what I was going to meet on the outside world,I just wanted to live odi and not to be referred to as a village girl by townspeople that visited during christmas,I ran to were my bag was and when I got there,I sat down waiting for the person I would follow to the city,I knew I wouldn’t stand for long because I was fair skinned,tall and very pretty,a pick-up loaded with plaintain pulled over and I entered,I was glad for that moment that I was beautiful..no wonder my parents gave me the name EBIERE,which means the beautiful woman!.
