Is Your Pastor Dumb Too?

The rate at which divorce is creeping into the church is becoming alarming.

The striking thing is that many religious leaders are just plainly dumb. They live in a fantasy land – keeping their head high – until it’s too late.

Is the church culture fast becoming a religious dogma? Are religious organizations doing enough to encourage people to seek practical help?

A research bears the hidden reality of this story. Read it all here.

How the World Uses the Internet in 60 Seconds

Okay.

I found this article while reading my tweets.

And so I thought it wise to share it with you. Of course, you may not need to read it. But I really do think that reading should NOT be limited to information purposes only. You should be able to enjoy a good read for entertainment purposes.

Well, if you find this post interesting enough, then you should check it out.

Here’s a quote on how the world uses the internet in sixty seconds:

“The internet gained 316 million new users in 2014 and saw incredible growth in virtually every category of social media usage and ecommerce, from the number of Instagram photos uploaded to Amazon sales per minute.”

I also love the line that says “everyone is a creator and curator.

Here’s the Article Source.

Depression among Entrepreneurs

More failing businesses mean more entrepreneurs living in depression.

Entrepreneurs are awesome people. They have foresight of the future based on their economic contribution to humanity. They get seed funding from venture capitalists and later work out the rest.

But what happens when all their efforts result in a downward spiral in their startups?

Depression. Depression. Depression.

Depression becomes the order of the day.

According to Wikipedia;

Depression is a state of low mood and aversion to activity that can affect a person’s thoughts, behavior, feelings and sense of well-being. Depressed people can feel sad, anxious, empty, hopeless, worried, helpless, worthless, guilty, alone, lost, irritable, hurt, or restless. They may lose interest in activities that were once pleasurable, experience loss of appetite or overeating, have problems concentrating, remembering details or making decisions, and may contemplate, attempt or commit suicide. Insomnia, excessive sleeping,
fatigue, aches, pains, digestive problems or reduced energy may also be present. Depressed mood is not always a psychiatric disorder. It may be a normal reaction to certain life events…”

When their businesses enter the life-line phase, they do everything to turn things around for better. They try hard because they want to smile again. They want to go back home knowing that their day was great. The want to fall asleep (even if for few hours) knowing that they did something worthwhile.

Many entrepreneurs treat their businesses as their baby. They create time for it. They cherish it. They protect it. They do their best to get it to wake up. Sadly when evrything goes south, it’s hard to just pack up and go. Depression then becomes the order of the day.

But you’ll hardly find many entrepreneurs admit to being depressed. I think it doesn’t just have to do with their ego. I think it has to do with the fear of defeat. Many entrepreneurs find it hard to accept defeat.

And so, they experience emotional turmoil without professional help.

Business is not always easy

Doing business is not always easy. It is a challenging part for anyone who wants to turn an intangible creation (such as an idea, vision or dream) into a tangible subject (such as a product).

It’s tough.

It needs gut and a conscious (and subconscious) mental, emotional and physical efforts.

Entrepreneurs need to be encouraged

I’m calling on everyone to support entrepreneurs – not just financially – but with love and emotional support when things go wrong.

If you’re an entrepreneur reading this post and you’re depressed, get professional help. And while you do so, surround yourself with happy associates and authentic friends.

I’m wishing you all the good life and rewarding journey that entrepreneurship offers.

Cheers!

#BringBackOurGirls: The harmful side of the Chibok girls’ story

I’ve tried to steer my mind away from the debate on the missing Chibok girls. But these thoughts keep returning.

“Despite, the #BringBackOurGirls campaign run through out the world, the only reason that all those girls are not yet home is because – sadly – they are not yet the priority of the Nigerian government.”

Well, I guess that it’s time for me to say something about it.

What I’m about to say about the missing girls is not much. It’s simple. And that is that:

Despite, the #BringBackOurGirls campaign run through out the world, the only reason that all those girls are not yet home is because – sadly – they are not yet the priority of the Nigerian government.

I hope they top up the government’s list of preference in future.

Sadly though, political rallies and state security are the new priorites of the governement. All these are in preparation for the 2015 general elections.

Like I said at the beginning of this post.

These are just my opinions. I might be wrong. Maybe there are political agents and endowed business tycoons who are secretly profiting from the situation.

Congratulations Dr. Dre Apple Inc man

A big congratulations to you Dr. Dre on the success of your Apple Beats deal.

Too bad a lot of folks around the world are only focusing on the success of your Beats deal with Apple for inspiration. For me, the true inspiration comes from who you had to become to be able to achieve this fit.

Change isn’t always easy.

I know it wasn’t easy – of course, anything great that is worth building isn’t easy. You must have to make your own share of mistakes. And learn from your experiences. You might even have to change your circle of friends – not because you hate them or anything – but because you have to protect your ideas and dreams.

My Toast

As you climb to new heights of experience and wisdom, I say enjoy your journey.
