Campaigning for Buhari in August

Life & Living

This is August. Nigeria’s 2015 presidential elections held successfully in March 2015 and a new president has since been sworn in as far back as 29th May, 2015. Good for the country. But many did not vote, and many voted against the current president, Muhammadu Buhari. Oh, yes, some guys wanted to know who I voted for, but I did not tell them. That should be a private matter. For those who did not vote [...]

3 Simple Steps to Success

Motivational speakers earn so much because people are ever ready to pay for their services. And their main service is simply to advise people. They give advice on how to become successful. They teach people what to do to get rich. And they guide people on how to get what they want. But how many people truly get what they want? And why do they fail to achieve their aims? The answer is very simple [...]

The Power of Perspective

Life & Living

Life, as they say, is what we make it to be…individually. Look at it this way: It rains heavily in the morning. One man becomes excited and praises the Heavens. Another man becomes angry with Nature and curses all day. Imagine! Same rain. Same place. Same day. But two different perspectives. Facebook is there for everyone to use. Someone concentrates on her friends’ pictures of the wedding party they attended over the weekend. She admires [...]

31-Day Challenge

Many people are good at planning. They wake up one day and draw up a long list of goals they want to pursue. But they end up not executing any one of them. So the issue is not about planning. It is more about execution – or, rather, lack of execution! Think about all the great plans you once had but failed to achieve. Think about your previous plans to learn the guitar; to learn [...]

People get…

Life & Living

Yes, people get killed – by crazy drivers, by crazy robbers, by crazy kidnappers, by crazy terrorists… People get raped – by crazy guys, by crazy gals, by crazy banks, by crazy politicians, by crazy traders, by crazy employers, by crazy staff… People get mad. People get sick. People get hurt. People get shot. People get all sorts of bad things. And it seems the bad things around outnumber the good things available. You don’t [...]

That Jack Canfield’s “101 Lifetime Goals” List

On March 16, 2015, I wrote about the things I will like to achieve before I die (http://megainsights.com/before-i-die/) Unknown to me, one of my mentors, Jack Canfield, would be writing about his own lifetime goals some two months after. He did in his post of May 13th, 2015 which he titled, My “101 Lifetime Goals” list and why you should have one, too (http://jackcanfield.com/my-101-lifetime-goals-list-and-why-you-should-have-one-too/) To say that I am enthralled by Jack’s list would be a gross understatement. I am [...]

Life & Living

“Good afternoon, Your Excellency.” “Yes, good afternoon. How are you?” “I’m fine, sir.” “And how was your trip to Abuja?” “Fine, sir.” “Forgive me for keeping you waiting since morning.

Don’t you agree with me?” “Of course, I do, General. [...]

Of money, children, and peace

Life & Living

The children of my church are quite smart. At a recent ceremony (church anniversary), they placed three big bowls labelled “money,” “children,” and “peace” in front of the congregation. They then started singing and dancing; urging everyone to put money in any of the baskets of his/her choice. So, if you preferred money, you would drop money inside the basket labeled money. If you would like to have the three of them, you would then have [...]

Decision

One of the things that set achievers apart is decision. It is decision that makes great leaders who they are, and successful people who they have become. Many men and women have lost great opportunities to indecision, and they failed to reach their most cherished goals. Whatever your matter may be: Decide! Act! Make a move! That’s the only thing that can bring about a result. Bad decision is better than no decision; at least, you will [...]
