From the corners of my mind.


We can’t predict our life, no one has clearly been able to. At best we can anticipate what it could turn out to be.

The Curiosity that comes with the unknown is a gift; without it men would remain passive and not be creators of their destiny. Choice then willpower are the greatest gifts God gave us, it bestows upon us responsibility.

Hence, we must then know that tomorrow is Beautiful only because we are decorating Today.

Secondly, it’s a Journey;
Precept upon precept,
Lines upon Lines,
One page at a time before another.
That is the metaphor of our lives as HUMANS.


As you grow and advance in life be flexible, spontaneous and SENSITIVE at all times.

We count our days using a calendar.

Look at it very well, our DAYS on earth follow a linear progression like the calendar date; day 1,2,3,4,5…..70….. n.

Look A Little CLOSER again and observe the TIMELINE OF YOUR LIFE. Our lives does not make a linear progression as the calendar time.

I’ll explain.  spill2

Career Coaching would tell you to plan your life; where do you want to end, then what are the 1,2,3,4….n steps that would get you there, once you can answer these questions and follow through, your dreams would come through.

NOTE: planning is a good thing to do, I do it and I will strongly advice it any time.

But there’s a wisdom here to learn, and it has to do with SENSITIVITY, FLEXIBILITY and being SPONTANEOUS.

Take me by my word, five years from now, if your dreams did come through, you would tell me that it didn’t happen exactly how you planned it. You would tell me some unexpected channels helped you out. You would tell me that it didn’t all turn out as you planned.

You would tell me that your dreams came through, but in many ways you never foresaw.

My friend that is life, our life.
Though we number our days by the linear progression of the calendar, our lives would however progress in a DYNAMIC way.

So what’s the use of this whole article?

Be flexible, sensitive, and Spontaneous.
Don’t be so rigid that you miss out of the unexpected great.

Embrace opportunities even though they scare you and are not according to plan, even if they appear like a distraction. As long as they would provide;

Better Platform
Healthy Network and
Build Strength in you.

Go for it.

Though the DAYS of our life follow the same linear progression as a calendar, our LIFE however is dynamic and not linear.

Strive. Survive.

Seventy Times Seven and more.

George Orwell wrote, ‘progress is not an illusion, it happens but it is slow and invariably disappointing.

Let me tell you a story. A great man in the sight of his master , valiant soldier in battle, highly regarded and skillful. He had everything he wanted but one problem persisted. He had leprosy and upon advice, he went downtown for a cure and was instructed to wash himself in the river seven times. it sounded ridiculous to him because, he thought he would receive his healing just with the snap of a finger. To tell him, a big man to wash in a river was like wasting his time. He was also upset that he had been instructed to wash in a small dirty river incomparable to other kinds of rivers. The prophet even sent someone to tell him, he didn’t come out to see him.
Fortunately, his servants talked some sense into him, if the prophet said to do something great, he would have done it, what should stop him from dipping himself into the river and be cleansed? This man heeded the advice and got cured. Naaman was his name.
Life is about persistence and it is the drive towards our goals that will bring about this persistence. How much do you believe in your dreams that you can persevere for? Before a lot of things we have at our disposal today became relevant, it went through various processes only possible through an energy of perseverance. It is not how many times you fall that counts, it is how many times you rise when you fall. Success is the beginning of failure, there are no short routes to greatness. It is in your ability to fail over and over again that you can gather the recipes to cook a beautiful meal. You burn your fingers in the process, you fix the pot and pans on the stove, you fetch the water you need to cook, you mix the spices and more. Everything comes with a process and a price.
It takes rugged persistence to set dreams in motion and for it manifest in great folds. In the place of persistence, there is a period of waiting, counting your days and watching your stats on when you would make that big dream a reality.
Naaman was instructed to wash himself seven times in order to be whole, on the pursuit to greatness, goal achievement and what you set you mind to do, you will pass hurdles and if you fail seventy times, then rise seventy times seven if you have to. George Orwell’s quote, rapid progress is not always possible.   
If you are faint, you probably will not get there, if you rest, oh yea, you will rust. If you seek alternatives in the wrong places instead of tightening your loose ends, you will fall flat on your face and start all over. You may just be getting near that greatness.
Your body, soul and spirit needs to be involved in the process of dream actualization.
Keep your hope and dreams alive seventy times seven and more.
Push until you get what you want out of life. 
And always pray, HE hears.

Wreck That Disaster!



When that disaster struck,

Burning down your throat,

Choking and making you gag,

Did life cheat on you?

In more ways than one.

Or someone ruined your day?

Are you sad and heavy,

Like this thing weighs a ton,

Dragging your heart,

Disappointed and displeased?

And you need be appeased.

Suck in air,

Brace yourself,

For tomorrow lies another,

Shake it off,

And raise your head high

For tomorrow lies another,

Of turmoils and things you do not want.

But you can respond way better,

Not by going to the pond,

Getting drowned and forlorn.

Pick back the pieces,

Like a mad man chasing something!

And fight to rise.

Since tomorrow lies another,
