WHEN OVER-CONFIDENCE BECOMES PROBLEMATIC It is no doubt that as human beings, we tend to get scared of different things at different times of our lives. We get scared of taking up big projects, we get philophobia (the fear of falling in love), we get stage fright, to name but a few. Best case scenario, happy is that man that has got confidence to handle all the things aforementioned. Worse case scenario, what will become of the man that has way too much confidence? "Disastrous" Having too much confidence can be so disastrous most times.

It can lead to a fatal autocrash when a driver believes too much in his driving prowess and then pay little or no attention to traffic signs on the road. It cost the grade of my departmental mate during his industrial training (I.T) defense; he was defending with so much confidence and gusto to a point of laughing and playing about while defending and so the lecturers sent him out and as a result, he was giving a really poor grade. The price to pay for being too confident? Perhaps Yes!

NOBODY HAVE IT ALL Hi everyone, All around the world, people have always admired the rich people and the beautiful people. People have the opinion that the rich and beautiful have everything anyone can ever desire from life. Here is what I know, In the creation of the world, God gifted everyone differently. You can be good in a particular area and be bad in another area. Someone that performs brilliantly in academics, might perform poorly in sports. Someone that performs exceptionally in sports, might perform poorly in academics. That is the essence of life so that perhaps, there will be a balance. Moreover, you should know that nobody is devoid of struggle to achieve something. So don't think that some people aren't facing challenges like you. So the deal is, everyone should search themselves deep within and locate their strength and maximize it for their best use perpetually. There is no sense in comparing yourself with others, by always sinking deep in thought about acting and becoming like someone you admire a lot. You will only end up loosing your sense of self and true worth. You are beautiful and strong and destined for greatness beyond measure. Go for it!

BURN YOUR BRIDGES! GOOD OR BAD? Hi Guys, Today, I want to intimate us about something important. Some of you might have heard the phrase "burn your bridges" while some haven't heard. Some has concluded that it is an unsafe thing to do, while some has he opinion that is very good. But before we exhaust the Importance of this phrase, let's look at the meaning. Simply put, to BURN YOUR BRIDGES simply means to "carry out an action which results in you not been able to go back to the initial state". Now, as regards this post, I want to point out that burning your bridges is a good thing to do, because it makes your focus to be in a forward direction, focus on your goals, giving you great power and control over your past life; mistakes, setbacks, failures and so on. If your bridges aren't burned, then you might find yourself travelling back through an old, dirty and bump-filled road that you have once travelled from. Worst case scenario is that, accident that will probably claim your life might occur during the course of the return journey. When you fail, you try to fail forward and not backward and ruminating on the past by trying to fix the pieces of the jigsaw puzzle of what could have or what could have not. Just drop the pieces on the floor and move on, but of course having learned your lessons.

EMANCIPATION FROM MENTAL SLAVERY Hi Guys, I just want to bring to your notice one thing that I discovered lately. Do you know that nowadays people don't usually engage in physical and strenuous activity to capture you and deal with you? They just go straight and deep for your mind. Everyone wants to lodge their way of thinking or their thoughts into your mind and by so doing, they deeply control you and make you do whatever thing they ask you to do. That's why there is the existence of suicide bombers in our world today because such people have been sat, and brainwashed by some hypnotic orators. You and only you just have to take charge of what you watch and listen to daily because sincerely it is now a mind game that is prevailing in our world. So many people are going about looking for who to devour, don't give them the chance. Take a firm stance to believe in good deeds only and free yourself from their captivity by words. Stay blessed!

APPRECIATE YOUR SKIN COLOUR There have been so many discussions on race, tribes and colour of people all around the world. People holds different views about complexion and race. Even in this present day, so many people still exhibit some sort of inferiority complex because of their skin color, perhaps, they feel they are not needed in countries being dominated by the opposite skin colour of theirs. Here is what I think, your skin colour doesn't determine your level or height of achievements. Just do what you do very well and your expertise will speak well for you. I am glad that racism is gradually going into extinction. We all need one another to succeed. Let us all learn to judge someone not by the colour of their skin but by the content of their character so as to make the world a safe Haven for both black and white skinned people to live in. God didn't create us with different colors to engage in hatred and racism acts, but rather to be able to accommodate one another not just for one moment but for a very very long period that transcend into the next generation when our present generation is no more. Whether YOU are black or YOU are white, just know that you are unique in every regard and you have a role to play in the world's continous development. GO OUT NOW AND DO EXPLOITS, ACTUALISE YOUR DREAMS!

THE COSMOS WE GLIMPSE IS THE COSMOS WE IMPOSE Hi Solanders, What do you see whenever you look around your immediate environment? This is a question I want every single last one of y'all to ponder on. The thing is, what you perceive deep-rooted in your mind daily is definitely what you produce outwardly. So if you perceive pessimismism, then you will always see pessimism when you go about your daily activities. On the contrary, if you perceive optimism, then you will see optimism every time you look around you or when you are scrutinizing any situation at all. Moreso, when you see definite optimism, you will be create something of great value even when the situation you are in is somewhat difficult or terrible. Someone might look at the sky and simply refer to it as being a mere sky with some features like stars, moon and the sun embedded in it. Someone might look at that same sky and interpret it as a very great positive inspiration and motivation, as a fuel their mind need each day to accomplish great things. "We all look but see differently" So as you go about your daily activities, focus on only positive vibes and discard all forms of negative vibes when it knocks on your senses. There is so much for us to accomplish in our short stay here on Earth, so keep digging. You shall succeed.

This is how you relax when your business is moving smoothly. When your phone beeps uncontrollably by Bank credit alerts. At this point, life is good. You wouldn't even think for once that there is a word known as bankruptcy. You are at your best! on the mountain. Often times, I hear statements like: money isn't everything but it is better and safer to cry while you are inside a Lamborghini than on a bicycle.

DEFYING THE POWER OF THE GRAVITY OF LIFE We were taught in our elementary school about the power of gravity. Gravity is that force which tends to pull planetary bodies towards one another. It is also that force that acts on an object to bring it back to the ground after been thrown upwards, and also keeps an already falling body in that ground-bound direction. Now talking about gravity in terms of life, we can assuredly say that it is that force that acts on our endeavors to bring it down even when we have earlier imagine to be at the top level. Here is the drill; In our individual endeavors, we strive continuously to be successful, we toil day and night just to make ends meet but somehow these efforts go down the drain. We work like elephants but eat like ants and one might be tempted to give up, but the truth is, it is only in this scenario we can exercise our power over gravity. You know it is an established law or it is sacrosanct that you can't naturally stop a ball you throw upwards from falling back to the ground. Moreso, when the ball reaches the ground and have finally come to a halt after bouncing for some time, the ball can't get itself back up because the pull of gravity is still acting on it. When you are at an elevated position in your business, you can defy the power of life's gravity by doing what you have to do correctly and diligently at all times (since consistency is key) and the free fall of life's gravity won't have 100% effect on you because even when you fall, you have all the power in the world to get back up again on your own. Stay blessed.

Education is basically the process by which learning is facilitated, or the acquisition of knowledge, skills, values, beliefs and habits. It is therefore unfortunate that so many people don’t understand it from the perspective of the definition above. Whenever the word ‘education’ is mentioned, people cast their mind on formal education only and leave out informal education.
