Newton's Second Law of Motion in Life


Newton's Second Law of Motion says, "The rate of change of Momentum is directly proportional to the force applied".
This implies that to get to the point where you achieve your goals, you will have to work very hard at the beginning. 
Remember Newton's First Law, you are starting from Zero. The force of inertia (the reluctance to leave a state of rest) is your biggest enemy. You will need reserve energy to continue applying force in order to activate big MO.

What is big MO?

Momentum is the Eldorado when motion is the subject. This is the reason why the rich gets richer, and you guessed it, the poor gets poorer. Momentum favors those who have something going on, and of course, it doesn't manufacture anything, it only reallocates resources from those who don't have anything going on to restore balance in the world.

Once upon a time, a man got lost and ended up in a desert. After days of wandering and near exhaustion, he saw a shack (shed) and half-heartedly wobbled towards it, hoping it wasn't another mirage. On getting there, he found a pump. I'm saved!!! He thought. He pumped frantically with renewed vigor that he had no idea where it came from. Zilch. No water. He pumped some more, still nothing. He let out a deep groan and his heart sank.

He looked around and saw a bucket of water. Why didn't I think of that? He kicked himself mentally. Beside the bucket lay a note, it read "If you would like unlimited water supply, you have to pour the contents of this bucket into the pump to prime it. Every last drop must be poured in. Then pump like your life depends on it"

His internal turmoil began, should he drink the bucket of water (security) and go on his way (uncertainty), or should he follow the instructions (insecurity), take a chance and hope it works (uncertainty). After what seemed like an eternity, he made the most unlikely decision.
He poured the entire content of the bucket into the pump and began his fight for survival. 

After a few minutes, which could very well pass for a few hours, it started in trickles. The glimmer of hope became a flood of sunlight and he pumped harder. It soon  started gushing and with little efforts, the water kept gushing (that is the Big MO). He drank to his heart's content, filled the bucket and wrote underneath the note "Trust Me, it really works! You have to pour it all in"

Anything worth doing will first get harder before it gets easier. Only those who keep at it get to activate Big MO. That is the leverage employed by the Wealthy and it validates the principle" the rich gets richer, the poor gets poorer"
This is the end of 2015. Unless there is a change in your thinking (still your fundamental human right), your realities by December 31st, 2015 may not be very different from the present.

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

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

Three Decades On

Its been almost 9 months since my last post and looking back now, I had been drifting gradually from writing and focused more on joining the race that over 2 million individuals before me had run faithfully. I was born on a cool Saturday morning somewhere in Lagos Nigeria, back when the military junta was making a comeback and the Naira was stronger than the US Dollar (yes, that time existed in our history). Fast forward ten years, and my most dominant thoughts were how I was going to prepare and scale through my common entrance and G2 examinations in order to gain admission into a secondary (high) school. I was bummed though as I was not allowed to write that year and had to wait another year before I could prove my mettle against other brainiacs in the state. Two decades on, my life revolved around getting my grades up in the university, flexing my public speaking vocal chords and chasing the girl of my dreams. I got my heart broken for the first time and was depressed for a
