To Survive, You Make a Move

Survivewtmk

In order to survive, the hand that hurts, you don’t hide

In order to survive, the hand that feeds, you don’t bite

In order to survive, the hand that baths, you don’t chide

In order to survive, the hand that supports, you make a childe

Come out of your shell in order to survive

Come out of your mess for a flex

Come out of the cocoon in order to thrive

When you hide, alone you start to strive

Come out of the hidden place in order to be seen

Come out of your wry situation in order to fly

Come out of the roaring fire for a soaring life

Roar yourself hoarse to silent the devil

In order to survive, don’t be stiff

In order to survive, you make a move

Most Friendships are Evanescent

poly ib3wtmk

Nobody knows I called this picture “12 Disciples.” We did not plan it when we took it, we were about to graduate from the higher institution then. I love the picture a lot. We were all friends, and we had many things in common.

We were passionate about our studies, we were fond of ourselves, and we were passionate about Christianity. These are the few of the cords that bound us together. Could you believe I am not in touch with any of them till date right from 2002? This friendship is diminishing day by day, and it seems it is about to crash to stand no more.

That is how most friendships are. They are evanescent!

Impression: The Result of What You Do

Hand shake - impressionwtmk

Impression is what you do, that make people continue to think of you after you have left. It is paramount when it comes to success in life. It is actually working on the mind of others. Yes, and I don’t think this is wrong. In fact, this is the only one route that leads to minds of others concerning you.

The same way it is not easy to leave an imprint on a rock, it is not easy to leave an impression on the minds of people, but it is very possible and achievable. Efforts and principles can make it done.

These are what to do to leave your impression on the minds of people you are meeting for the first time:

  • Give a smile and hearty greetings.
  • Introduce yourself and ask for his/her name.
  • Continue the conversation.
  • Decline if he/she doesn’t want to speak with you.
  • Render a helping hand if he/she needs one.
  • Give room for opportunity to meet again.

However, do not forget there are wolves in sheep’s clothing and there is the possibility that sheep can be found in wolves’ clothing, beware and be at alert when you are meeting new people. All your senses have to be at work, when you meet people for the first time, in order to at least have a glimpse into who he/she is. Though, you may be wrong later!

First impression, they say, lasts longer.

The Catapult Nature of Man

catapult-157721_960_720

I don’t know how a catapult looks like in other countries of the world. In my country, Nigeria, it is a thick rubber strip tightly tied to the two arms of a Y-shaped strong stick. It is normally used to kill birds, though it can also be used to kill some other small animals like squirrels.

It is local hunting equipment. It is used along with stone to kill the target of the operator of the catapult. The destructive effect of the catapult on the animal depends among other things on the weapon itself and the expertise and the strength of the hunter. If it is a bird, where it is shot, determines whether it is going to die instantly or escape with it. A catapult is a small equipment, but in the hand of an expertise, it can be used for successful hunting of birds and some other small animals.

You as a Catapult

What materials are you made of? Are you well-shaped? Which force is driving you?

  • What materials are you made of?

The catapult I am referring to in this context is made up of wood and rubber. There are different types of wood: hard and soft wood. There are also rubber of different thickness. The correct combination of these materials determines the effectiveness of the weapon. What stuff are you made of? Are you equipped for success? You may not have made it in life, but you and others should already know where you are heading to. This would be revealed by who you are. This can be gotten from the type of books you read, people you associate with, and the friends you keep. Show me your friends, and I will know the type of person you are. Someone says, “You are the average of people you relate with.”

  • Are you well-shaped?

This weapon I am talking of has a Y-shaped wood frame. It sometimes deviates from the original shape because it is locally and manually produced. In order to function effectively because of its “little” deformity, the operator has to reposition it make sure the stone will pass through the center of the letter ‘V’ on the tail. That is the best way the shot stone can have the best effect on its prey. As a human being, you have your area of strength and your area of weakness. What will determine your successful endeavor is not only concentrating on your area of strength, but also on working on your area of weakness.

  • Which force is driving you?

A catapult in the hand of a child and a novice may not be able to accomplish anything, but in the hand of a matured man with an expertise in its use is deadly. Go and ask Goliath, there is even no need, his death has already told us the effect the stone from David’s catapult had on him. Age counts in life but you have to be matured psychologically and emotionally. Your International Quotient (IQ) and Emotional Quotient (EQ) are the important forces that you need to build as you are building your expertise in whatever area you are gifted in order to have a successful endeavor.

Living Heritage

123547118109Lionwith BB

These pictures above were taken last December in University of Ibadan Zoological/Botanical Garden and Trans Amusement Park both in Ibadan, Oyo State, Nigeria.

These two places have become living heritage just because, the Zoo had been there before I was born, and the Amusement Park is about 30 years old now.

There is Always a Way Out

Precipice picture

If it could have been a rough road,

It would have been better,

Would definitely lead somewhere,

Every jangled road.

If it could have been a bottomless pit,

It would have led to another world,

Where they stick to their words,

And where they are not amoebocytes.

If it could have been a turbulent waters,

There would have been a saving rod,

It can forcefully lead to a shore,

Where there are ready-made shelters

If it could have been a fiery furnace,

The effect can be ameliorated,

If timely intervention could be provided,

There is a reversal for every burnt face.

If it could have been a precipice,

No escape route, you think, in the air,

It is going to be like a plane crash,

The most high is still in charge.

No Qualm! Just an Observation

There is no qualm, this is just an observation in the Blogosphere.

ObservationA friend said, “You did not justify your work.” I was covered with qualm from head to toe, and I was dumbfounded. That was before I went for computer literacy. I just finished an assignment given to us, and I was elated that I typed it myself believing everything is perfect, until the bombshell from that trusted friend of mine.

Of all the sites and blogs I visit daily, only a few justify their posts.” If your post is not centralized, you need to justify it. It always looks better. In Microsoft Word, “Justify” is found under Paragraph Section, the same place where you find “Centralize.” The shortcut is “Control J.”When I first used the command on one of my post, it didn’t work, meaning the command is meant to be used on Microsoft and may be some other programmes.

Some know how to do this, but they don’t justify their work because of time. To justify your work before posting, highlight all the texts, and take your mouse up to the place where you have the fonts, color, etc. The button to click is between “Underline” and “Text Color”, click it and that’s all.

Which one will you prefer, between the “justified” (above) and the “unjustified” below?

How to Design a Free Website on WordPress

wordpress-1414398_960_720

This post is written to say thank you to all my followers that are not blogging on wordpress.com. Either you follow me directly on WordPress or indirectly from social sites like Facebook, Twitter, Linkedin, Google+, and so on. Your being my friend has helped a lot, and we can continue our collaboration for success and life on the same platform. If you desire to have your own website free, which later you can monetize if you want, this is the best platform to do that.

Websites on WordPress are standard, fast, and easily customizable. If you don’t want to be constrained by how your site looks and functions, then, you can get a self-hosted version on wordpress.com, starting from $2.99. You can also get self-hosted site via bluehost.com or dreamhost.com.

These are the steps required to create your website on your own on wordpress.com, but make sure you have your first post ready.

Step 1

  • Go to wordpress.com/start
  • Choose an option whether to start with a blog, start with a website, start with a portfolio, start with an online store.
  • I would advise you start with a website first, you can change your settings later.

Step 2

  • If you choose “start with a website”, you would be asked to choose a theme. Choose any theme you like in the list shown, you can change it later.
  • You would be prompted to enter a name or keyword so that your site can be given an address. If you already own a domain, you would be directed to another path by clicking “Already own a domain?” on the same page.

Step 3

  • For instance, when I was writing this, I typed the keyword motivations, and I was given the address “motivations2017.wordpress.com” which is a free address.  There are other alternatives like “mymotivations.blog” which is available in WordPress.com Premium, that is you have to pay for it.

Step 4

  • You have to select the free one, except you want to go for the premium. It will take you to a page where you have to pick a plan that’s right for you: Business is $24.92 per month, billed yearly. Premium is $8.25 per month, billed yearly. Personal is $2.99 per month, billed yearly. Free $0 for life.

Step 5
