Dangerous Distractions


Over the past few days, I’ve made journeys that may be similar to that of Saint Paul.

I travelled for various activities, driving in the company of a dear brother from Port Harcourt to Owerri, then moved to Nkwerre both in Imo state. I left Nkwerre for Awka in Anambra state and later moved to Nnewi. I later left Nnewi back to Owerri, moved from there to Mbaise, from Mbaise to Egbu, from Egbu to Owerri and finally back to Port Harcourt, all these within 5 days.

Since I wasn’t conversant with some routes we had to take to arrive at our destination, we had to be guided by people at some point and then I realized certain irrefutable truths:

  1. Life is indeed a journey
  2. Vision charts the course of every journey
  3. It takes someone with proper understanding of direction to guide you in the right path on your journey
  4. Certain distractions on your journey are dangerous
  5. Dangerous distractions can mislead you and make you waste precious resources on your journey
  6. If you must arrive well, you must learn to FOCUS on only what’s expedient for your journey
  7. Better is the end of every journey than the beginning, because at the end, arriving well is all that matters.

*Run Your Race With Understanding And Focus




The Wrong Bus!!!


On one of my recent trips to the city of Umuahia for a business meeting, I got to a  motor park in Port Harcourt and boarded a bus headed for Umuahia.

After a few minutes, the bus got filled up and ready to move when they realized that one passenger who had paid for this particular vehicle had no seat for herself.

Upon Inquisition, it became obvious that someone had displaced her. Everyone was asked to quickly surrender their boarding tickets for a check when one man  seated in the bus shouted “I’m going to Onitsha, I thought this bus is for Onitsha…” he quickly alighted from the bus and let the stranded passenger take her place.

Then it dawned on me that many people in life have displaced others and boarded the wrong bus headed for a destination that’s not theirs because they just assumed they were on the right track, and that’s a very costly assumption to make.

Many have ended up at wrong destinations while others are headed for same for various reasons.

While there’s still hope, it’s time to check if all those traveling along with you are headed for your destination. If not so, it’s time to safely alight from that wrong bus and find the Right bus with the Right company, headed for the Right destination.

Want to dine with Kings?


It’s amazing to know how most people (especially young people) desire to live the big life and dine with Kings.

While it’s okay to desire such, mere ambition will never suffice.

Today many people desire success without hard work, but only a few understand what it means to apply one’s self steadfastly and consistently to a particular task, to build capacity, learn lessons, acquire experience and gain mastery.

If you desire to stand out from the multitude of mediocrity and achieve your greatness, you must be DILIGENT in whatever you do because when a person is found to be diligent in his business, he qualifies to stand before Kings and even dine with them.

To maximize your life and become resourceful in your world, you must apply this irrefutable law of achievement:

“whatever your hands find to do, do it with excellence, diligence and enthusiasm” and you will create your way to the top!
