10 Ways To Make Life Good Again!

1. Accept reality so you can changeit. To move forward in life you must first accept the reality of what it is. This acceptance provides you with an important starting point from which you can move in any direction you choose. To deny this reality or to fight againstthe past will merely waste your time and energy. To wish that things were different, or to pretend that they are, gets you nowhere. Instead, visualize the possibilities and the path forward with a calm, collected mind. Then determine the next logical step that will take you in the direction of your vision and step forward.

Realize instead that life hasalready provided you with a world filled with abundance, and that creating meaningful value out of this abundance is up to you. No matter who you are, where you’re from, or what your soc…

10 Choices You Will Regret In 10 Years!

1. Wearing a mask to impress others. – If the face you always show the world is a mask, someday there will be nothing beneath it. Because when you spend too much time concentrating on everyone else’s perception of you, or who everyone else wants you to be, you eventually forget who you really are. So don’t fear the judgments of others; you know in your heart who you are and what’s true to you. You don’t have to be perfect to impress and inspire people . Let them be impressed and inspired by how you deal with your imperfections. 2. Letting someone else create your dreams for you. – The greatest challenge in life is discovering who you are; the second greatest is being happy with what you find. A big part of this is your decision to stay trueto your own goals and dreams. Do you have people who disagree with you? Good. It means you’re standing your ground and walking your own path. Sometimes you’ll dothings considered crazy by others, but when you catch yourself excitedly losing …

9 Powerful Ways To Spend A Day!

1. Thinking for yourself. The uneducated belief in something false that someone tells you is the greatest enemy of your own truth. Do not let anyone tinker with the freedom of your mind . The best thing you can do for yourself is to think for yourself. With all of society’s influences and agendas incessantly trying to persuade you every single second, thinking foryourself is the most courageous act imaginable. You are a unique human being with independent thoughts and free will; carryon accordingly. 2. Being a little bit uncomfortable. If you’re not a little bit uncomfortable on a daily basis it means you’re not growing. Every aspect of physical and emotional growtharrives from outside your comfort zone. So be fearless sometimes. Have the courage to take the risks that feel right. Go where there are nocertainties. Stretch yourself and your routineseven if it means feeling a bit uncomfortable. The road less traveled is sometimes laden withpotholes, bumps, and unexplored territ…

Jonathan And The Cloud That Hovers

Forget the boisterous stunts and rhetoric that the erudite Reuben Abati will force us to believe, the signs are apparent even to the impaired, as Aso Rock brews from a power tussle; one that could define the presidency of Dr. Goodluck Jonathan. It is the burden of Goodluck that he still has the imperious and vindictive Olusegun Obasanjo lurking around. No doubt, Jonathan enjoyed from the spoils of OBJ's infamous 'Do or Die' politics. But, like the devil who gives with one hand and collects with the other, OBJ's perennial fraternity with the corridor of power might prove decisive. But OBJ's shenanigans is not the only cross GEJ must bear. The politics of inchoate and sheer intrigue that has recently bedevilled the ruling Peoples Democratic Party confirms that the president is entangled in a web of power tussle, pitted against factions, and torn between options. Trouble was first invited when former president, Olusegun Obasanjo decided to call it a day as the chairma…

7 Things To Stop Worrying About Today...

1. The challenges you face. Challenges are not here to worry about; they are here to help you grow. Challenges are what make life interesting, andovercoming them is what makes life meaningful. Many of history’s greatest accomplishments were responses to difficult challenges. Many of your own greatest advances have been in response to challenging circumstances. Each of life’s challenges is a test that helps you notice and understand your weaknesses, thus enabling you to transform these weaknesses into strengths . 2. Less than ideal conditions you can’t control. There is no good reason to deny yourself the opportunity to do something extraordinary. Life is about making a difference, and you will never run out of ways to do that. Whatever has happened, whatever others say, whatever the state of the economy or weather may be, you still have the ability to thrive. Life is what you choose to make it. You have unlimited power over your mind, not external objects and events. Realize t…

Poetry: She left...............

In the struggle for life, she escaped us. Concealed behind the darkness, she catered for her own anguish. They say an ant journey is never a short one But her sojourn through pain was even shorter. She was the custodian of her solitude, And the guardian of her own isolation. She died in instalments. But we were too busy to observe. Too entangled in Life's expectation, laced with selfish hopes and inordinate ambitions. Her teeth were chattering in bitterness, Her ears were peeping into the corners of tranquillity. Tears began to form in her eyes, effortlessly. In substances that made us cringe. But our concern was belated, It arrived in the lull of time. …

Technology And The Culture Of Isolation

The discoveries witnessed in the past decade have been startling, to put it mildly. From the smart phones to the amazing wonder that comes with everything 'I', we are in a technological watershed that even Newton and Einstein would have been astounded. However, with the glitz and untrammeled nature of this evolution comes unintended consequences. Psychologists contend that with the advent of new technologies, our interpersonal skills have been affected. As it has been observed, new media does not create loneliness, it reveals it. In today's world, so many people prefer the option of being alone as long as a gadget or tablet is within reach. We don't find a need of visiting friends or actually meeting people in reality. Sociologists Miller McPherson and Matthew Brashears in a study carried out in America confirmed that technology has contributed to social isolation and impairment in human relations. Society's increased reliance on these services as central forum…
