Are you a writer?

Can you boldly tell the world you’re a writer?

What shows that? Is it because of the words you put on paper that makes you think you’re a writer, or it’s the value you bring into people’s lives by your words?

Your answers to these questions should help you know and determine your worth if indeed you’re a writer, as there’re many out there who claim to be writers but authentically, they aren’t.

And the reason is that, if you’re genuinely a writer, the words you put on paper should bring value to people’s life by giving them insight into things and help improve their lives. …

In a world where conformity is the norm, taking an unconventional path isn’t easy. It takes people with inflexible mental muscles to take such a course and continue relentlessly to the end without quitting.

Have you ever tried being unconventional?

How was the experience?

Was it easy for you?

When was the last time, you did such a thing?

Did you continue on the path? Or you gave up because of the persecution you faced?

Did everyone side with you or they went against you for trying to be unconventional?

Ugh. You’ve given some sigh. Haven’t you? Because I’ve made you recall the things you faced when you tried to be unconventional. …


The difficulties you are facing can be the source of your wealth and happiness

Life is a journey, they say. And this journey comes with a lot of ups and downs. Things go your way at times, and sometimes it’s the opposite. But whatever the case is with you, you have to embrace the reality and deal with it the best way you can.

Often we assume life isn’t fair, and we are on the wrong path because some people have it better than us. When you look at your ambitions, the things you could do and achieve, and how things are going with you, at times, you get tempted to believe you weren’t born for greatness. …

“Not every online program will give you what you want, and not everything you want is in an online program.”

The inception of the internet into our lives has made things easy for us as a generation. Before this day, the things we couldn’t do are now quickly done by the internet's power.

The internet has made it possible for us to access information quickly. We can study everything we want and reach out to people everywhere globally, no matter how far they are from us. …

The world as we have it now is a result of questions. All the successes we’ve enjoyed and still enjoying are because someone questioned something and took steps to find their answers. Every great invention, painting, artistry all came out of someone trying to satisfy their curiosity. It happened either by something they couldn’t understand and started questioning or a problem they encountered and needed to solve. Questions, therefore, we will say is life. Without it, life wouldn’t be as it is. …


Instead of getting frustrated, you can channel the money somewhere to be satisfied.

Writing online comes with a lot of frustration, usually, when you start as a new writer. Success won’t happen overnight due to the number of people writing in the space and the competition. Although some writers start and see success instantly, these are people who have written for an extended period outside the internet. So, coming on the internet, things work for them in a blink.

But how about you, who’s just starting and the results aren’t encouraging? What do you do to come out of the income frustration cage that most people are trapped in and have no idea how to free themselves? …

Books are a great source of information to us as people. Although we may read books for different reasons — entertainment, information, one thing is for sure — to gain knowledge about things.

We all read to get knowledge about something we want to do or, in general terms, to get an understanding of life and our time through it.

As we all have a way we go about our reading concerning our time that some people read a book for a week, others, two weeks and some, for a month, and I do a week or two on a book depending on my schedule, I’ve decided to read this book in 48 days. …


Live your life with a vision — not with the yearly resolutions

We tend to write down the new year’s resolutions whenever a new year is approaching. Every end of the year, we make new resolutions for the upcoming year, but we do not realize that it hardly works. We make new resolutions for our lives every year, yet we cannot live our best lives entirely.

According to U.S. News, 80% of people give up on their new year’s resolutions by the second week of February.

What makes it so? Why is it that we usually don’t get to live the lives we want despite the resolutions? The answer is simple. …

It’s around 6 pm. I just woke from ceister. As an immigrant, all my thoughts and plans lately have been to take life to the next level. So, I’m every day thinking and devising ways to do that. The plans I have implemented earlier haven’t worked. It’s been a failure from one thing to the other — something that sometimes when I think about, I feel tempted to go insane, but I don’t.

Instead, I try to be grateful because, in those failures, I learn and become even better and wiser and get closer to this person I see myself becoming. …

Human life is all about habit. The habits we live our lives with make or break us. With the right habits, life is fulfilling. But with the wrong ones, life could be misery, where if care isn’t taking, you might think the world is against you when, in reality, you are the cause.

Many people are going through life feeling miserable and hopeless because of their bad habits. With those who seem to be alright, it’s by the good habits they’ve built. Making habits the power governing human existence. That, with the right ones, your life will be great, and with the wrong ones, you’re as good as a dead person. …
