WORLD SHAKER

The first time I said the words ''WORLD SHAKER'' was way back October 1, 2002. For the next 5 years, I kept on telling anybody that cared/didn't care to listen that I am a World Shaker even though I didn't fully understand what/how exactly I would go about shaking it.


Sometime in 2007, God asked me who a World Shaker is and honestly between you and I, my head was blank; He [God] taught me right there and then that a World Shaker is someone who affects his neighbour positively i.e. someone who influences his neighbour to think/act positively; someone who adds value to another person.


The power of 1 is so strong because that 1 person has the potential to influence 1 million others the world over; ergo, do all that is within your capacity to help someone think better. It is said that you act to the best of their knowledge per time; if you know better, you will do better. If you change a person's thoughts, you have inadvertently changed the person's life.


If you change a person's physical condition i.e environment, financial status, educational status but you don't address his/her mental status, work done in changing that person's life is zero. The person's physical status will conform to his/her mental status. Your mental state is the driving force of your physical state, all the happenings in your mind will become your reality over time.


To improve your mental state, you have to change your mental diet [if you have any] or start one.


1. Read books that will expand your thinking and raise the limits of your mind


2. Associate with people who are making things happen [no matter how small] around you


3. Make deliberate efforts to continue learning [we all have a learning plateau every now and then] read more books, take that course, associate with that person, listen to that radio program, write to that institute, e.t.c


Today, make deliberate efforts to improve your thinking and that of the people around you and you would truly be living up to the name World Shaker!

Forgiveness 2.0 – Can you go back?

Forgiveness, just like Love, has definitions to varying degrees or like an onion—layers. I always thought I had the forgiveness thing locked down, yeah right! Just like the proverbial out of the blue, it hit me that I had just erased that part from memory and decided the type of forgiveness I wanted to extend. I found out that I couldn’t (or at least that’s what I had subconsciously agreed) go back if I had the chance. On my way home, it became evident that this sealed can of worms had been in the basement and it is already stinking. It took an interviewer’s probing questions for me to shed light on that chapter in my life’s story. Forgiveness is absolute, but just like everything else, we make it relative and as such varying standards abound. This means what I call forgiveness may not cut it for someone else. While my version of forgiveness may be shallow and warped, yours may be brutally honest. Ultimately, we are responsible for our versions of forgiveness, while it is in our best

LIF101 - POST NO BILL

I want to tell you a story, and in the next couple of minutes, I would appreciate if you could loan me your undivided attention. I promise to return it with interest; A child was born in an urban area in the heart of Lagos state almost 3 decades ago, attended about 5 primary schools, finally obtained a first school leaving certificate, from there on to just 1 secondary school, being a very brilliant and apt student, he obtained the necessary 5 O'Level credits in senior school certificate exams and got an average score in the university and tertiary matriculations exam. He got admitted to study Physics because they just had to put him somewhere because he knows somebody who knows somebody. Even though in his heart, he wanted to study Electronics and Computer Engineering because that's where his strength is, mechanization and electronics. The result? Instead of the standard 4 years, he ended up spending 8 years and still did not graduate. For those wondering how come, here

LIFE 101

Most of the years we spend within the four walls of the school environment were spent learning theories of how things work. How to analyze, solve problems given a few clues [symptoms], calculate, and read. However, when we finally leave the confines of those walls; we discover that we have spend one-third of our lives not preparing for the present simply because the school curriculum does not make provision for people-skills, time-management, emotional intelligence, entrepreneurship, financial intelligence, et al. We start school afresh once we step into the real world and the courses are very systematic because we take the examinations first, then the lesson; the direct opposite of the school we have been used to. Life is more that just a set of classes and some library of books, far bigger than what we have been made to believe. Great men/women of the world had just one thing in common; we never hear of their academic excellence- rather, we hear of what they did outside the w
