6 Proven Ways to Be Committed (3-min Read)

On the road to great achievement, there is no place of real rest. A little siesta or slumber when cooking will result in a “burnt sacrifice.” The time to really rest is when the set goals have been attained.

Commitment 2 - Motivation-is-what-gets-you-started.-Habit-is-what-keeps-you-going

It is not a difficult task to start anything in life, but to continue with it until you are successful is a very difficult task. Starting a business is easy, starting a blog is not all that difficult, but to keep going is where the real job is. Many times without number I have watched an athlete start a race, but would not make it to the finishing line. Many started building a house but abandoned it for many years.

Many people have the notion that whenever they start anything, they must finish it. Yes, you have thought and spoken well, but it is not automatic. Even robots that have been programmed to do anything still need to be monitored, to avert malfunctioning; you have to keep at it. On the road to great achievement, there is no place of real rest. A little siesta or slumber when cooking will result in a “burnt sacrifice.” The time to really rest is when the set goals have been attained.

Commitment is one of the virtues that are required to make it to the end when you start anything. It is one of the traits of successful and result-oriented people. For success to surface, commitment is a must. The hen that was digging with its webbed feet, with commitment, will definitely find something to eat. If it is success you are vying for, commit to whatever you are doing. Give it what it takes, give it your all. Commitment requires your whole time and energy, it is a consuming passion.

What do you do to be committed?

  1. Keep thinking about the project every day: when you keep thinking about a particular problem, the solution is sure. Have you forgotten Eureka Can? The law of floatation was discovered by the inventor when bathing.
  2. Keep changing your original plan if there is need: Result-oriented people don’t keep to one way of doing things, you can actually create a new route to where you are going.
  3. Keep consulting and seeking professional advice on the issue: Seek knowledge and you shall find. Wise and successful people are those who seek to know and put it to practice.
  4. Keep writing the innovative ways you come about: Keep putting together what you have discovered in your quest for success in black and white, this is not only because of yourself and immediate family but to also bless the next generations.
  5. Keep executing your plan one at a time: Human tends to rush things. We want our children to start school earlier; we want them to have double promotion, etc. All these steps do more harm than good in the long run. Let us take a step at a time, not just a step, but a right step.
  6. Keep monitoring and recording the progress and setbacks: Keep at it, keep monitoring the progress and make sure you record it. It is also very crucial that any setback be written down so that whatever may be the cause will not be repeated in the nearest future.

Nature Renews (1-min Read)


Tree and the earth 1

When I first learned that paper was made from trees, I was surprised. That was a long time ago! I studied Engineering in order to be a lecturer, then I found myself in teaching in secondary school, no problem, there is no much deviation from the original plan, but the only challenge is that I have to teach Technology, it is my favorite subject (in that I passed it always) but not my best subject, my best subject was, and still remains, Mathematics.

I started falling in love with this subject called Technology when I saw what it offers the world. I learn that it is the application of scientific knowledge to solve the problems of this world. In order words, if there is no technology, all the money, resources, and energy put in by scientists and others in researches would be a waste. There would be no way to show and demonstrate their conclusions and inferences.

Nature was put in place to enhance this life we live in. Then, if nature is to benefit us, why do we destroy our own properties? Why do we cut trees indiscriminately? Yes, trees serve as raw materials for many products like paper, drugs, building materials, furniture, transportation, etc. All these support life, but they are not as important as life itself.

All the products from trees make life easy, but trees support life by preserving the Ozone layer. I am not saying matured trees should not be fell to make those useful products, but they have to be fell with caution, and be replaced, when you cut one tree, don’t forget, you plant two back. Nature is an expert jobber in earth renewal! Nature renews!

Love Me the Way I Am


Honey, you should understand

That I’m not a perfect being

Some of my actions may irritate you

But please, you have to learn

To put up the way I am

Because after all our pretty quarrels

I have to come home

And dine at your table

For it is your table

That provides me the best meal

And at the end of the day

It is by your side

I have to lie

To rest my limbs

And hey! Let me tell you a secret

I always have the sweetest of dreams

When I sleep beside you

You baby, dazzle me

More than anyone and anything

Just take it easy

Accept me the way I am

And let our love forever be a loop

5 People Successful People Should Not Meddle With

these 5

If you are already on the top rung of the ladder of success or you aspire to be successful in life, these are the people you should not meddle with, but you have to run away from:

  1. Drug addicts: You will be influenced by their lifestyles, and you will also become a drug addict. Thereafter, you will also spend all your life just like your friend, on whatever you are addicted to.
  2. Cheating Partners: somebody who cheats on his/her partner can never be a good friend. Besides, they can spend everything they have on their newly-found love. If you move with such person, what you are supposed to have achieved at a particular time may take a longer period.
  3. Greedy People: Greedy people show an intense and selfish desire or wealth for power. It is said that a person who is greedy and runs after money will never be able to get money. Greedy people will never get ahead with anything in life.
  4. Arrogant people: Arrogant, rude, and obnoxious people will never get rich. This is because every time, their pride will come in way of their success and hence, they will not do well in life.
  5. Indecisive people: People that cannot take a decision on their own delay many things, including their successful endeavors. If you move with such, you will be affected with the same disease of indecision.

A Bottled Idea (2-min Read)

                                              bottled idea picture

A bottled idea is an idea that occurs to you which you decided not to put to work. It fades out and dies off like a candle light that has been put on for a long time in the daylight. When you ruminate on a matter for a long time without putting all the ideas that occur to you to work, you have bottled all the ideas. For instance, if an insect is put in a bottle that is covered up for a long time, what happens to the insect, it would die, right? The same thing happens to any idea not put to use, it will soon be forgotten.

A writer says idea rules the world. That idea you have may be the one that would bring you to the limelight. You can’t conclude that the idea cannot work until you put it to work. You have to give it a try first. Even if it doesn’t work, you have not lost anything, you have only learned one way not to go about the issue. A bottled idea has no advantage until it is released from where it is locked in the custody of our brain. A caterpillar not released from its cocoon would never become a butterfly. A bird locked up in the egg can never see the light of the day.

A bottled idea has a negative impact on our life:

  • It causes fatigue: when you think too much on any issue, and you are not taking steps based on the ideas that are occurring to you, you will be worn out at that moment. Put down the first ideas that first occur to you when you want to solve a challenge and work on it. One of these will work, but if none of them works, then you are permitted to resume thinking.
  • It leads to waste of time: Thinking alone cannot make you grow rich. You have to think, put down in writing what you come by in the process of thinking, and work at it. If it works out, that is when it can make you rich. Thinking alone is a waste of time.
  • It leads to being at the same spot: When you don’t work with the ideas you have about successful endeavors in life, you cannot make progress. You will only find yourself in a merry-go-round of repeated futile activities.

If you have an idea about any issue, put it to work. Thinking it will not work, when you have not tried it, is not healthy. Not all ideas rule the world, only tested ideas that work do. Wishing you the best in and of life!

What it Takes to Blossom

Blossom picture

For a flower to blossom,

it has to be trimmed.

For a tree to be fruitful,

it has to be pruned.

For a skin not to harbor parasite,

the hair has to be cut.


For you to blossom financially,

you have to shed selfishness.

For you to blossom in health,

you have to shed unhappiness.

For you to have a long life,

you have to shed part of your weight


For you not to be imprisoned,

you have to let go the one that has embittered you

For you to be free indeed,

you have to be free to everyone around you.

For you to be successful in life,

your successor must be trained by you.

10 Facts about a Blog


Blogging 2First and foremost, there are lessons I learned about blogging from three (3) bloggers. The pronounced out of all the three is Ivana.

Many people believe that there is no gain in blogging, until it is monetized. This is a blatant lie. There are many things you stand to gain, which can later culminate to financial gain.

What you stand to gain if you start a blog is as follows:

  1. You interact with and learn from others.
  2. You learn many things from the internet.
  3. You will learn technical detailing.
  4. You learn how to keep your own websites.
  5. You learn graphic design and how to use some programs.
  6. You will improve your writing skills.
  7. You will learn more about social networks.
  8. You will learn photo skills.
  9. You will learn communication links.
  10. You will learn better management skills.
  11. You learn how to develop ideas and creative thinking.
  12. You will not only become a good writer but also a good marketer.
  13. The blog serves as your online portfolio with which you can present to the world in the best way.

Now, my 10 facts about a blog:

  1. A blog is a platform for international learning/teaching: It is an avenue to have access to opinions about a topic or an issue from all parts of the world. Different perspectives about an on-going issue help people to learn better.
  2. A blog is a platform for inter-cultural relation: It is an avenue to relate with people of different background, different language, and different culture. You will always meet people from all over the world.
  3. A blog is a platform for information dissemination: Based on the fact that you meet people across five continents, you have to possess an international mentality so that the information you want to share will be relevant. A blog keeps you abreast of new developments on issues.
  4. A blog prevents boredom and loneliness when you are alone: A blog is a platform where you open up your mind; it is not a good thing to be thinking continuously without putting anything down. It allows you to think on paper. A blog allows you to voice out what goes on in your mind without talking.
  5. A blog gives room for productive thinking: When you think, and there is something to show for it, that is a productive thinking, but when you think while you and others could not see the result, it is a wasted effort.
  6. A blog prevents senility: The same way a consistent and moderate physical exercise helps us to be strong physically, a blog serves as an open field to exercise our brain in order to keep fit mentally
  7. A blog serves as an avenue for meeting people that you would never have met: There are many people that you would never have met, even if they are all on social platforms. Besides, a blog allows you to have a better glimpse into the life of people before you connect with or follow them.
  8. A blog is a platform for getting feedback on your whole personality: Whether you know or not, your writings present part of who you are. Therefore, the comments on your blog most times will help in shaping your perspectives about life and your whole personality.
  9. A blog is a platform for voicing out your bottled ideas: whether you are an introvert or an extrovert. Unlike in real life where the extroverts may not give enough room for the introverts. Having a blog gives you enough room to express yourself without any disturbance.

Note: Be on the lookout for a detailed researched post on “Introvert Vs Extrovert”

10. A blog is like a panorama: A wide picture that is being unfolded gradually in front of the onlookers. You never knew what it may grow to become.

Therefore when you start a blog, be a paragon,  be an example of excellence in what you write and what you do. You have to sit down survey, study, and plan before you move out because you are about to present yourself to the whole world. If I am given an opportunity to re-start my blog, there are many things I would have done differently.

What do you think a blog is? I want to read and learn from you. Thanks!
