Quitters can be Winners… It depends on the reason.

Knowing when to quit a wrong mission is no less wisdom than holding on to a vivid vision ~ Imbuedman I guess we’ve heard these several times before: “If you quit, you’re a loser…” “You’re a coward for changing your mind…” “We’re now ready to double your pay…” “What would people (family) say when they hear that you’ve abandoned your plans of being of Doctor…” “You’ve put all your time and effort into this thing, don’t give up.

Bitter experiences – such as disappointments, physical and emotional abuse, broken hearts or being defrauded – in our lives might lead us to trust people less. It might necessitate that we become less emotional and more rational.  However, it is important to not distrust or become suspicious of everyone afterwards. All human beings are not the same.

Paranoia is a limiter of Destiny…

It’s okay to pay attention to ‘enemies’ to the extent that they do not hurt you again. Anything more is just vanity and a distraction from purpose. Do not continue to look back. Don’t live to prove people wrong; live to prove yourself and those who believe in you right. That way you are sure you are on the right path, and then you are able to focus all your emotional and mental capital on the journey ahead. Do not become your own worst enemy… paranoia is a limiter of Destiny.                  Seyi Ogunsola (Mr...

20 simple and effective ways to declutter your mind

The mind is arguably the most important part of us humans. The quality of our thoughts determines our habits or life choices – an unhealthy mind can impact on our body and life in general negatively. An unhealthy mind cannot manage people, relationships, money or even the human body. A mind that is weighed down by the burden of guilt would find it difficult to be happy or express love.
