TREASURE PEOPLE

Two days ago, I went to get a bag of satchet water and as I sat down waiting for my change and water from the seller, I observed he was agitated.

Upon collecting both items, I throw in a big smile and asked Oga Viko, as we call him, why you dey vex na? He answered saying, 'na one of my friend dey vex me jor! wetin dey pain me say I go still forgive her', by this, he meant that he is pissed with her but just have to bring himself to forgive her.

I asked him, what her offense was? He replied I have known imabong for over 18years, and the only time she calls me is when she needs a favor, and I will agree to help most times because I know if I don't help her, God will surely raise another person to meet the need; so why not do it.

I sighed and walked back to my abode while digesting how my day panned out, these insights were opened to me and I thought to share with you:

1. Yes, we are to Treasure people no matter how close or far in strengths they are to you.

2.  Why? for that which you overlook might be what you would look for in the course of time.

3. Attitude! Just because they are always there for you, don't abuse them.

4. Maintain a level of cordiality. Take out time to call, text and when you can, spend them with them one on one.

5. Always show Gratitude, people are moved to do more when you appreciate their little deeds.

6. You always have people like this in your friend's list, know when to let them know of their attitude, and when they are unrepentant, delete them; for like John Obidi always say " Lean on me no mean say to make you press me"

8. God is a rewarder of God deeds, but don't let religiosity psyche into emotionally punishing yourself; The Bible says "Love your neighbor as yourself".

I know there are bridges you cant just burn, but be reminded we are all pilgrims in a foreign land; be kind to make the journey light for one another.

THRIVE BY LEARNING IN DISCIPLINE

Months ago, I bore on to be trained by a successful senior colleague. As an oldie, I sometimes am tempted to skip training by telling myself that I know and have done these things before. After a month, I realized newbies were delivering results I had yet to have. I mustered courage and went to meet my trainer! to access me. IToas confident he would give me the needed spanking and motivational alignment, but lo😭, he said_ hosanna be more disciplined. It took me weeks to readjust, humble myself, and start doing what was needed to cause a shift in my mental attitude; the results I got were changing for the better. I am excited to share these transformational life cues with you today : 1. Be OPEN! Be CURIOUS:  You have to become like a child in any learning sphere. Learn to watch, talk less & do more than average. 2. HUMILITY: This will take you to places and help you learn from nobody and everybody to be Somebody. 3. DISCIPLINE: without this, no man can be truly su

Don't Say! “Why Were The Old Days Better Than These?

This is for somebody, who might be going through the troubled waters of life, and you are tempted to add more pressure to their pain by going through the lonesome cycle of your past to console yourself. - Be it your glorious works and awards! Now you need help with relevance. - When you can eat a healthy three-square meal! Now is brunch only (0 -1 - 0) -- You pay your children's school fees in advance! Now you are at the mercy of the proprietor. - Take your partner on a love treat! Now you are on the brink of a divorce. - Had figure 8 💃 body, now struggling with Obese body🤦‍♀ - When you can walk into any atm and swipe! Now you wait for church welfare. - Your monthly business turnover was in 7- figures; now you are at the mercy of bank loans. - You could give out freely, even before you are asked! Now you hide your face. - Good times you had with your ex-partner! Now you are emotionally broken. - Afford the car of your choice; now you enter standing! Or trek!

DON'T SHRINK! QUALITY REQUIRES PATIENCE

Over last weekend, while uploading contents to my social media handles, a valuable lesson was gained from trying to upload to my blog. I had successfully published the post and shared the link to my social media handles when I realized the image quality was poor. I was disturbed and went back to re-upload the images. For over an hour and a half, the same quality of images was given even after refreshing the web page repeatedly, switching networks, and sitting positions. I finally succumbed to the thought of leaving the image like that, I had logged out of blogger and as I stood up to go about other activities I felt disappointed with myself. The inner me said why would you settle for that, will you or your audience enjoy content with such image quality? I sat back and decided to log in again and delete and upload the images again! And boom, I had my eureka moment; image resolution was perfectly loaded. I sighed in joy and in retrospective, I understood that t
