PETER OBI: A SUCCESS STORY

Image
It is popularly said that some are born great; some achieve greatness, while some have greatness thrust upon them. Governor Peter Obi of Anambra state is a rare combination of the three. His track record is not just exquisite but a model for effective governance. He encapsulates an embodiment of humility, and his selfless service to humanity is absolutely seamless. He is as focused as Christopher Columbus, as courageous as Nelson Mandela, as triumphant as Nnamdi Azikiwe, yet as simple as Mahatma Ghandi.

Born on the 19th of July 1961, Peter Obi attended Christ the King College where he completed his secondary school education. In pursuance of the golden fleece of knowledge, he went to the prestigious University of Nigeria, Nsukka for his tertiary education, where he bagged a Bachelor of Arts degree in Philosophy in 1984. Perhaps, a degree in philosophy helped to broaden his perspectives on issues and mould an impeccable character in him. From the word go, Peter Obi has always had an i…

30 Must-Do’s While You’re Young Enough to Read This

1. Accept every unique piece of yourself. – The secret to happiness and success is the acceptance of yourself. You will never become who you want to be if you rely on everyone else to qualify you. Own yourself completely, just the way you are, flaws and all. Once you love and accept even the worst possible version of yourself, you are free. So always go with yourself, never against yourself. Be who you were created to be and you will set the world on fire.

2. Make yourself a priority. – Truth be told, there are only a few people in this world who will stay 100% true to you, and YOU should be one of them. Prioritize your own needs into your daily to-do’s.

3. Take positive action. – Don’t sit back and let things happen to you. Go out and happen to things. You are what you do, not what you say you’ll do. Stop saying “I wish” and start saying “I will.” Turn your cant’s into cans and your dreams into plans.

4. Do the work. – You can’t underestimate a person who always works hard.…

POETRY: It’s Called Life!

It’s called Life
This tale of puzzling content
This litany of precarious events
This story of uncommon plot.

It’s called Life
This cunny fellow
This episode of Karma
This myriad of mysteries.

It’s called Life,
This insensate rhapsody
This plethora of indecipherable scenes
This panorama of uncertainties.

It’s called Life
This movie of untellable ending
This troubadour of many traverses
This journey of masked surprises.

It’s called life
This impromptu teacher
This mystic friend
This witting fellow.

It’s called Life
A road we all travel once
A trip we all must make
A fleeting trip
Many go into it encumbered with luggage
Others travel with many distractions
Few travel lightly
A fraction arrive at the coast
It’s called Life.

7 Powerful Beliefs that Will Free You from Negativity

1.What other people say about me is their problem, not mine. – Don’t take other people’s negativity personally. Most negative people behave negatively not just to you, but to everyone they interact with. What they say and do is a projection of their own reality. Even when a situation seems personal – even if someone insults you directly – it often times has nothing to do with you. What others say and do, and the opinions they have, are based entirely on their own self-reflection.

2.I am free to be ME. – Can you remember who you were before the world told you who you should be? Happiness is found when you stop comparing yourself to everyone else and what they want. Stop living for other people and their opinions. Be true to yourself. You are the only person in charge of your life. The only question is: What do you want to do with the rest of it?

3.Life isn’t perfect, but it sure is great. – Our goal shouldn’t be to create a perfect life, but to live an imperfect life in radica…
