EXAMINE YOURSELF NOW: IDENTIFY YOUR KEY CONSTRAINTS.

Mr Kelvin is a writer with an excellent track record over the years.  He extends his offline activities to social media but lacks tech skills. 

ARE YOU HUNGRY?

  As I carried my plate of fried rice enhanced with two laps of chicken to the dining table, little Bosco, one of my neighbour’s sons bolted in and plopped on the chair anticipating a kind gesture. I never paid attention to him, but positioned myself well to devour my mouth-watering meal. 

HOW TO CONQUER LEARNING PARALYSIS.

As I learnt more about writing skills, I spotted areas I left unattended in the past. This invoked a paralysis.

WHAT MANY WON'T EXPLAIN TO YOU ABOUT UNFAIR ADVANTAGE.

While I thought about some unfair advantages in life, my mind exploded with many answers. 

WHERE DO YOU SEE YOURSELF IN THE REMAINING FOUR MONTHS?

While I reflected on some things I haven’t accomplished this year, I counted the remaining months and started having some nice thoughts about the thief on the cross, who spoke well about Jesus. What if that less-than-a-minute statement was subtracted from time? What if he hadn’t made that statement? 

FOR SINGLES: FIGHT IGNORANCE NOW.

During our courtship, my wife and I  knew exactly the time we were going to get married. We got married 22 months after our engagement. I was opened to her about when we'll get married. 

WHAT YOU SHOULD DO INSTEAD OF MAKING A NEW YEAR'S RESOLUTION

Various studies have shown that   80% of new year's resolutions fail by February. New year's resolution is nothing new to people, but many keep falling short of its rewards. It's been practised for over 4000 years through different approaches but has not been made perfect yet.

THE LAW OF PROXIMITY: WHY YOU NEED TO SUBTRACT SOME PEOPLE.

Ada was a religious woman who stayed in an area where smokers lived. Three apartments facing hers were inhabited by unrepentant smokers. Each of them brought their friends to form a league of smokers. 

WHAT ATMOSPHERE ARE YOU CREATING AROUND YOU?

  Something is so special about Mama Nkechi's Restaurant. Merely passing by her restaurant could hold you spellbound. The aroma from her kitchen is so magnetic that it can stimulate your oral sensory glands to produce saliva that is enough to fill a glass.

THAT GUY IS A GOOD GUY BUT....

Ali is the best cook in a family of four. He makes finger-licking dishes that can make you forget your first name. 

Goal-Setting:Getting it right with finding the Right Partner- Part I

I proposed to my wife when I didn't have a job.  After my National Youth Service, I was clear about who I was to going to marry. I knew exactly the kind of woman I wanted and the qualities that I needed. When I got a job, I knew where and how to channel my money. 

STOP COMPLAINING ABOUT THE WEATHER.

While many farmers are happy with the rainy season, some traders are sad that the rain is disrupting their businesses.

ARE YOU FUELING YOUR GOALS?

I once had an interaction with one of my pals. He was dispirited that things hadn't been well with his business for over a decade.   He had thrown in the towel a long time ago. But the structure of his business remained. This structure kept deceiving him to think that he was still in business. 

IDENTIFY YOUR DEMONS AND SUBTRACT THEM.

When we were quite tender, some things held us spellbound. Whenever we were on errands, we left like a "yours-obedient servant", but one thing or the other usually validated that we were stubborn. 

SOMETIMES YOU HAVE TO LOSE FRIENDS TO ACHIEVE YOUR GOALS.

Last year, a certain lady left my group because I shut her down when she was about to carry on with the discussion on the "Big Brother Naija" show. While it grieved me that she left, I didn’t see any need for her to be in the group.

IS YOUR "WHY" PROVOKING ENOUGH?

"Oh no, not this white dress again". Those were the words that came out of my mouth a few weeks ago. I neatly kept my white dress in my wardrobe thinking it was well laid. But on the contrary, some ill-looking creatures did what stirred up an unlikely action in me.

THE POWER OF CONCENTRATION.

What is the difference between the hydrochloric acid found in the laboratory and the one found in the stomach? Their concentration differs.

YOU HAVE TO STAY HEALTHY TO ACHIEVE YOUR GOALS.

An arthritis patient who is a herdsman cannot function well in carrying his cattle from one place to another. 

WORK AND PRAY.

In the Book of Nehemiah,  the walls of Jerusalem were to be rebuilt.  Sanballat and Tobiah withstood the Jews, made fun of them and even stirred up trouble so that they won’t succeed in rebuilding Jerusalem. But Nehemiah prayed and armed his men.

ARE YOU LIKE OBINNA?

Obinna was faced with a decision to make over a new project but kept thinking over it for a  long time. Every day, he got different perspectives but never took a step. Some days, he felt enthusiastic and optimistic about the project, while some days he was pessimistic. He kept on procrastinating over making his final decision to take action until he lost motivation for executing his beautiful project. Are you like Obinna?
