Action is Everything

There is the saying that “A poor plan is better than no plan at all”. That’s true. A person with a plan is one step ahead of a person with a goal but no plan. That person is also ahead of a person that has a dream; this person is also better than a person with a wish and a person with a wish is better than one who knows not what he wants. But the best of them all is the one that acts on his plans bit by bit till it’s Continue reading “Action is Everything”

He is the one, I can’t forget him (How to move on)

There’s this trend in telenovelas and other love movies that is so deceptive. The movie usually starts with some two people that are destined to be together. The guy may give birth with three women and the women will either lose the babies, die in an accident — anything to make sure the guy finally ends up with the “girl” of the movie.

This idea from the media has had great impact on how some of us see love and the person we are supposedly in love with. We tend to think that after all that we’ve been through, we are definitely meant to be together. What happens Continue reading “He is the one, I can’t forget him (How to move on)”

You may be a genius but school doesn’t know it. Or is it you that don’t know?

When we think of geniuses, we usually think of great people like Einstein, Leonardo da Vinci yet we forget that it isn’t school that defined how intelligent they were.

Back in junior high, I had a mate called Rob. The guy could hardly read and write well though at that stage, that was too basic for everyone. But the amazing thing about Rob is, he could dribble the entire class if we stood against him in soccer. He was gifted. He was hailed by all until break time is over and we return to the classroom, then some of us take over. In my mind, he was a Continue reading “You may be a genius but school doesn’t know it.

Stop over thinking! –Breaking the negative snowball effect

I remember this day, in the university. I had returned from a lecture and had about two hours before the next lecture. I decided to take a nap since I was quite tired. I woke up three hours later and realized I was an hour late for that lecture and suddenly got angry with myself. I checked my phone; they had done a quiz and I had certainly exchanged some marks for sleep. I got even more angry with myself and begun to think: I’ve lost 5 marks now and I didn’t even do well in my previous test. The exam is also going to be difficult — definitely! I’ve not covered even half of the syllabus. How could I have slept?! Why did I even decide to lie down? It will affect my CWA (GPA in other systems), I can’t increase it when I keep missing classes and quizzes. If that happens, I may not finish with a first class then I won’t be happy, I won’t Continue reading “Stop over thinking! –Breaking the negative snowball effect”

All outstanding breakthroughs go this way: Spiritual -> Mental -> Physical

They took over the world when the Spirit came upon them

1 Now when the day of Pentecost had come, they were all together in one place. 2 Suddenly a sound like a violent wind blowing came from heaven and filled the entire house where they were sitting. 3 And tongues spreading out like a fire appeared to them and came to rest on each one of them. 4 All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit, and they began to speak in other languages as the Spirit enabled them. 5 Now there were devout Jews from every nation under heaven residing in Jerusalem. 6 When this sound occurred, a crowd gathered and was in confusion, because each one heard them speaking in his own language. 7 Completely baffled, they said, “Aren’t all these
