“You know, my motto is ‘Excelsior.’ That’s an old word that means ‘upward and onward to greater glory.’… Keep moving forward, and if it’s time to go, it’s time. Nothing lasts forever.” – Stan Lee

There are no words really to tell how I feel right now. Words won’t do justice! Siting here listening to Martin Garrix ft Mike Yung “Dreamer” 

This Visuals Should tell the whole story!

Kid Bro on the far right. (on his convocation ceremony)

A salient message to the emerging igbo youths.

The truth; we are not very innovative but a majority are great hustlers, but the 21st Century requires “BUSINESS MODELS” & “STRATEGIES”, not hustling.
Inbetween I keep thinking about Nandos. Nandos do essentially sell jollof rice, chicken & salad.. just like brother Nnamdi does in Ikeja (computer village) – but Nandos make >£500m in revenues in UK alone.

*Dump “Hustling” for a sound and well structured thought process.

*Dump Social Media “Trends” and start turning your hobbies and “free time” into a life time career.

*Read books on “Stocks and Bonds” and soft investments.

*Dont put all your funds into leaving Nigeria. Take time to learn about Nigeria and all her geopolitical zones.

* Even if you don’t have a leverage to afford good food. make out time to exercise your body and drink lots of water

*Have you visited your home town?

*Read your Bible, its your biggest tool.

You are born naturals have the ability to easily learn fast and have a body system that adapts to the worst any system can throw at you.

“You need mountains, long staircases don’t make good hikers.”
― Amit KalantriWealth of Words

Complete harmony can hardly be arrived at when we have constant internal turmoils stemming from grudges borne over something or even nothing special at all.

A whole lot of times grudges stem from expectations placed on someone/something and when it’s not met, we begin the resentful spout and store up that senseless carbon in our minds and hearts. Even when we say that we have forgiven the person/situation, we keep a long list of records of all the shortfalls.

We have got to limit all expectations that would end up making us breed endless stupidity inside of us.
If we minimized our expectations from others and valuables, almost nothing would be a hindering factor to our ultimate reach in life, that way we leave room for pleasant surprises and also save ourselves that feeling of being let down.

An instance is our personal relationships. A lot of relationships would surely fail because we go into it with a long list of dos, don’ts and infernal expectations that would surely lead to no fruition.

Man is not GOD, but fallible humans! and would always remain as that regardless what anyone tags to their name. THEY REMAIN NOTHING BUT FALLIABLE HUMANS. You Hear!

thus this should be virtually applied to everything that we do. Give yourself hope with every single forward step.
For instance; you and your nasty, creepy Boss in the office. Now you understand my point right?

Zero your mind down to the fact that he/she(your boss)has issues that they are dealing with on their own
…and they possibly don’t know how to be different but stick to their own status quo, which makes you a direct recipient of the heat in them.

Learn to give a big laugh inside of you when Mr Jones plays the obvious script, never get intimidated because only you know what to say for you!

Once your mind has accepted their contrary prickly nature, you go about your business as effectively as you can without letting the acid of annoyance and grudge implode inside of you.

Getting into differences with “certified shallow minds”, will only hurt you more, because the likelihood is that they may not understand, don’t care or are insensitive to your feelings.

Remember that you cannot change other people, but you can change yourself. Who knows, your balanced sense of self and disposition might actually serve as a source of inspiration for such people. Well, I someworth live in that reality.

Be You and stay so!!







While we plan for the future (especially 2019);
we could aswell render less lipservice to the show of shame by the herdsmen and their president.
Perhaps we could do the same to the practitioners of mediocrity from the west. Especially that ugly one in ota

It’s certain from the recent trends in world politics compared to what we do here:
Most of our African leaders have always been fruit-picking, game-chasing wanderers and nomads.

Humanity has since moved on. It is our collective responsibility to rescue the left-behind from primitiveness, not to create an uncultured space for them within a fake civility.
