Where is (YOUR) Fortune?

Fortunes, they say, favours the brave . . . nothing significant comes from easy places. If beauty would ever come out from chaos, and problems would become blessings in disguise, resources must be spent on them, wherever they are. There is a lot of value and great wealth in mundane and regular experiences. So, wherever…

What is [YOUR] Value?

Certainly, no one is bereft of value; it is either it is unknown or it is known and underutilized. If there are resources (time, money and people [relationships]) and they are not spent on increasing or improving worth and essence [skills], value would inevitably be lost. It is a beautiful thing to buy pleasure and…

Do You Work?

It is the beginning of a new week,Dawn to dusk, a cycle of rising to work and retiring to bed, to bring aspirations to realization. Before you begin this week, the grind of making and promoting value, ponder a while on what you do as work . . . Is it the exercise of your…

Wholesome Education for Life

One consistent truth that has been ignored more often is this: we need to think the HOLISTIC DEVELOPMENT OF OUR CITIZENRY, not periodic interventions. It seems elders and leaders would rather establish errors/negligence as the the standard; legacies are priced over the future of nations. The future of nations is the sum of the futures…

Overdue Shift in Education Paradigm

No learning is possible without recourse to the capacities of the learner and the facilitator. If people aren’t learning what is true, there is a disconnect somewhere. It is either the facilitator is a fraud (teaching what is not experienced) or the learner is not willing or ready to learn (which is a direct offshoot…

Insight for Elders

In my journey of life, I have come to realize that I seem to connect much easily with older people; perhaps it is because I seem to understand their story and empathize with them. The case is not so for younger people, who no matter how much one tries to show that they are well…

Beyond the Door

For every door that is knocked, there has to be a response. If there is none, it means there is no one in that address. If and when the door opens, the interaction could go in many ways. But before we explore that, do not forget that the visitor knows what the subject of the…

Defaults and Designs

For over 39 years I have enjoyed divine health from God that the last time I was in a hospital for anything major was 1986, then 1993 when I was hit by a car on my day of fast. Not one time had the things God put in my body given me a reason to…

This Thing Called Mentoring . . .

Moses led (not mentored) Joshua, but Joshua didn’t start his ministry while Moses was alive…same for Elisha to Elijah…same for Disciples to Jesus Christ! None of them went to wake the dead for instructions…the same Holy Spirit that was on their leader was who came on them (for some in double portion). They did greater…

Counsel for Would-be Spouses (Men)

In recent times, I have found myself having a lot of conversations with single men (not many of ladies :-), about choosing a spouse and getting married (I guess ladies prefer to talk to women like them). As a matter of fact, so much burden has been heavy on my heart in this regard. So,…
