When death puts two lovebirds apart

When death puts two lovebirds apart

A Painful experience

Death of a loved one is one of the most painful experiences ever imagined. I could recall when I lost my Dad years back. It took me quite a while to recover from the pain and heartache. He loved me so dearly and always made sure I was happy.

What is even more touching is the sudden death of a spouse. Some find it so hard to deal with the trauma. More than 14 years ago, someone, I knew personally, died after a brief illness. He was so close to the wife. They were like Siamese twins.

The wife struggled to cope with the demise of her husband. Three weeks after the death of her best friend, she fell ill and died also. That’s how tough it is, dealing with the demise of a loved one.

I love poetry so much, and yesterday I saw a very emotional poem about the demise of a loved one. It is a touching tribute. Death indeed can create a vacuum that oftentimes, can never be filled.

If tomorrow starts without me

If tomorrow starts without me, and I’m not there to see. If the sun should rise and find your eyes All filled with tears for me. I wish so much you wouldn’t cry the way you did today. While thinking of the many things we didn’t get to say.

I know how much you love me, As much as I love you, and each time that you think of me, I know you’ll miss me too; But when tomorrow starts without me, Please try to understand, that an angel came and called my name, And took me by the hand.

And said my place was ready, in heaven far above, And that I’d have to leave behind all those I dearly love. But as I turned to walk away, A tear fell from my eye, For all my life, I’d always thought, I didn’t want to die.

I had so much to live for, So much left yet to do, it seemed almost impossible, that I was leaving you. I thought of all the yesterdays, the good ones and the bad, I thought of all that we had shared, and all the fun we had.

If I could relive yesterday, Just even for a while, I’d say good-bye and kiss you and maybe see you smile. But then I fully realized, that this could never be, for emptiness and memories, would take the place of me.

And when I thought of worldly things, I might miss come tomorrow, I thought of you, and when I did, my heart was filled with sorrow. But when I walked through heaven’s gates, I felt so much at home. When God looked down and smiled at me, From His great golden throne,

He said, “This is eternity and all I’ve promised you.” Today your life on earth is past, but here life starts anew. I promise no tomorrow, but today will always last, and since each day is the same way, there’s no longing for the past.

You have been so faithful, So trusting and so true. Though there were times you did some things, you knew you shouldn’t do. But you have been forgiven, and now, at last, you’re free. So won’t you come and take my hand, and share my life with me

So when tomorrow starts without me, don’t think we’re far apart, for every time you think of me, I’m right here, in your heart.”

Strength for the Journey

Death indeed separated two lovebirds and made what would have been a beautiful union end in tears. It’s a bitter pill to swallow, and though sometimes we are helpless, we do wish that we grow old with the one we love.

I once lost a very dear friend to the cold hand of death. I couldn’t believe he was gone until we all went to the morgue to see his corpse. It was an unforgettable experience. Death had dug a huge hollow in my heart.

Omoefe was always cheerful, kind, and gentle. Unfortunately, he fell ill and couldn’t recover. He was just 17. He was extremely talented and blessed with artistry gifts. Death ensured those gifts never so the light of the day.

To those who have lost a loved one, always take solace in the forever love that was shared. The beautiful memories will keep your heart glow and give you strength for the journey.

Creativity can boost your business

Creativity can boost your business

Creativity has always been known to be the soul of business success. Creativity and innovation are twin tools that can help give you an edge over your competitors. Apply imagination and creativity to the challenges that inevitably appear as you proceed towards your goal. History is replete with stories of inventors possessing limitless creativity. Inventors like Thomas Edison, Henry Ford, Michael Faraday, and the Wright brothers. These great men triumphed by using the power of creativity. 

They experimented with new materials and techniques that seemed foolish to ordinary individuals. For years, they suffered failure after failure, but they never gave up their pursuit and continued to look for that perfect invention. They were humble enough to learn from the idea of the people and adapt it to their project.

Creativity does not involve only creating an entirely new product! Hear what Brian Tracy had to say: “To create a successful product, the product needs to be only 5 percent different from existing products” It involves doing things differently from what others are doing

In the workplace, for example, there is always the place of creativity where employers are given room to create ideas for higher productivity. When there is room to think out of the box and innovate ideas that are implemented, creativity will ultimately blossom and birth more amazing results.

One of the unique advantages of implementing creativity in business is the higher rate of problem-solving. The business world is always evolving with new technology getting introduced yearly and the need for creativity can never be overemphasized. Another amazing thing about creativity is that it brings a sense of fulfillment to the creative minded. When you can come up with a creative idea that ends up been implemented within the business setup, you ultimately get that sense of satisfaction and fulfillment.

When creativity is implemented in business, you tend to see huge potentials rather than problems. That is what sets the successful businesses from failed ones. When companies want to innovate, they bring in their team of innovators and they usually go into brainstorming sessions where creative ideas are birthed.

Better teamwork is always encouraged via creativity. When team members are allowed the freedom to think innovatively and their ideas are accepted, this can help boost their self-confidence and create a better working environment that can eventually lead to the success of the business.

rejected thrice, he refused to give up

Rejected thrice, he never gave up on his dreams

Introduction

To be rejected and written off as not been good enough can be very devastating. Rejection comes in different shapes and sizes. Some rejections are minor, and may not pose any major hindrance to the individual progress in life. Unfortunately, some life-changing challenges come in the form of rejection. It takes a full dose of courage to recover from such rejection.

Susan Boyle

A talented songwriter and musical sensation Susan Boyle faced so many hurdles in the early stages of her beautiful career. She was once described as having a low Intelligent Quotient (IQ). She tried unsuccessfully to scale through several auditions, but she was never selected.

Her late mum however encouraged her to stay true to her dreams and give her dream one more push. She got inspired and entered for the 2008 edition of Britain’s Got Talent. That was the beginning of her amazing turnaround. Her rendition of “I dreamed a dream”, captivated the audience and over 10 million viewers that watched her perform. Her moment of success wiped away years of rejection.

Nwankwo Kanu was once rejected

Football Legend, Nwankwo Kanu was once rejected by national team selectors in  1991. At 1991 All African Games, he has decamped by then-coach James Peters because he was too skinny. Nigeria later won bronze. A year later he captained the football team to Atlanta 93. He never took his initial setback to heart but kept on improving his game. He later went on to win laurels for both club and country.

Victor Chiedozie Ojogho was rejected thrice

For  18 years old Victor Chiedozie, he faced rejection thrice. The first time was at a football camp. He shared his touching story: “It was in 2017, at the Abuja football college. I couldn’t make the team due to tribal sentiments. The coach said I wasn’t good enough. Two weeks after I left the academy, the players selected by the coach traveled to Italy for an FA Competition. I was a painful experience, but I had to move on

The Abia State-born footballer kept pushing on and never gave up. He was training so hard and just a few months later, another opportunity came. This time it was tagged “Tough  Season”. It was a football clinic held in Port Harcourt, Rivers State, Nigeria.

I traveled to the football clinic with my friend. We registered and started taking part in the drills and training sessions. When the list of selected players came out days later, my name was not there. Fortunately, my friend made the list and they traveled to Lagos,  for another 3 months camping. I did my best, but I never knew why I wasn’t selected”.

Another major setback Victor Chiedozie Ojogho experienced, came in 2018 when he was all set to travel to Europe for trials. Unfortunately, the entire plan was aborted when he couldn’t raise the funds for the trip (€3,000).

So often in life, some difficult roads do lead to beautiful destinations. Today, Victor has pitched his tent with Beautiful Strikers FC in Rivers State, Nigeria.  He’s still aiming higher even as he keeps training hard to achieve his dreams in life.

His dream is to play in Europe and make a success out of his career. Watching his high-intensity training sessions, and seeing the belief and determination on his face is a joy to behold.

Secret that kept him going

I couldn’t help but asked this passionate Chelsea supporter, the secret that has kept him going, despite these challenges.

Passion for the game. There’s something about passion that keeps you going. Sometimes you ask yourself if you can even play this game. So many players are better than you, but you keep pushing. 

You know this is who you are. You know this is what you want. You don’t allow anything to discourage you.  I have told myself, if I am ever going to get to the top, it’s by his grace and favor”

Business tips for entrepreneurs

Entrepreneurs are always in search of innovations and new solutions to help them achieve success in their business. In this article, I will be highlighting some useful tips that entrepreneurs will find very valuable.

Tips #1

If you’re an entrepreneur, Make sure whatever you’re selling is relevant, useful, and be consistent. People don’t buy just the products but they look out for benefits. You don’t start something one day and disappear the very next day.

Tips #2

The formula for a successful business is: do what you love and love what you do. Turn your talent into a business, not just a hobby. For instance, if you can easily motivate others. You turn your passion for motivational speaking into a business. It is something that can create multiple income streams for you if properly channeled! 

Tips #3

Impressing people isn’t worth it. The more you impress, the poorer you become. The poorer you get, the less they respect you. Stop impressing people by using your little money to buy things you can’t afford and start impressing your future by investing the money instead. Entrepreneurs need capital for investment, not to impress people who don’t even care if you exist.

Tips #4

If you want to double your income and create a new stream of income as an entrepreneur, it may not work the first time. I have tried several ideas in the past and the never worked, but it doesn’t mean those ideas were wrong. You cannot lose by taking action, you only lose when you refuse to work on your dreams.

Tips #5

Building a system around your business is one sure way of ensuring uninterrupted income streams. You can start the process by automating as many parts of your business as possible. Having an online presence, for example, allows you to keep your business open 24/7 without further effort on your part. Modern entrepreneurs have leveraged the awesome power of the internet to increase their business spread.

Tips #6

Building a successful business requires focus. Why? Because that’s how you build momentum. As an entrepreneur, you must remain focused on a particular niche. Don’t get easily distracted by what others are doing. So don’t do multiple things at once. Instead, focus on just one thing, and do it in the best possible way.

As the author puts it: “A scattered focus leads to scattered results.” Business is all about patience. 8 years ago, crude oil was the real deal. Today, lots of investment in that sector has diminished. Those who started web-based businesses 8 years ago are more relevant than ever before. It’s all about focus.

Tips #7

There’s nothing wrong in being a salary earner, but there’s a lot of wrongs if you cant create a plan B from your salary.  Think and make the right choice, because as a salary earner, you can get fired tomorrow or your company can be liquidated. Make your plan B source of income a top priority this year!  A plan B that will grow into another huge income source. Most entrepreneurs started as salary earners and diversified into a business of their own.

Learning to tolerate someone's excesses is one of the toughest tests to handle. Some individuals can stretch your patience level, but you must learn to tolerate them.

Tolerate everyone that comes your way

Learn to accept people for who they are. You will always come across the good, the bad, and the not so nice. That shouldn’t stop you from being you. At my place of work, I’ve come across very nice people. They make my job look so easy. I’ve also come across people that are so difficult. They make my job look difficult.

 What do I usually do? 

I focus on the positives and ignore the negatives! That has been my source of inspiration daily. You can never choose who to like and who to hate. You have to learn to tolerate everyone that comes across your path in life. It may be tough to do, but when we see beyond their human frailty and become flexible enough to accommodate their weaknesses, it will be easy to tolerate them. 

It is only an unwise person that would expect to be loved and appreciated by everyone that comes across his/her path in life. The truth is, some will deliberately want to hurt you and see your reaction. On the other hand, some will go out of their way to support, inspire, and make you see things differently.

 It’s all about our willingness to have an open mind. There are always few bumps here and there, but we must keep striving and never look back in regrets. We must realize that we too are not perfect.

Benefits

Learning the act of tolerating others is a sign of maturity. A sign that we are growing up and letting go of yesterday’s pains and disappointments. There are three main reasons why we need to tolerate others:

1. It helps your inner peace:

 When you are unable to tolerate others, there is an absence of inner peace that develops over time. Their presence seems to irritate you and it can create anxiety and depression if not properly handled. 

2. Nobody is perfect and that includes you:

Everyone has their strength and weaknesses. As individuals, if we are sincere to ourselves, we’ll discover we too have our flaws. What that means is that when we come across people who aren’t nice to us, let’s see them as work in progress. An unfinished product that requires lots of patience and understanding to handle. 

3. We can’t love if we can’t tolerate others.

Love is one of the most amazing feelings in life. Apart from desiring to be loved, we must always look out for opportunities to shower love on others. They may not necessarily deserve it, but it helps to plant an amazing seed on their inside.

When people expect you to hate them and what they end up seeing his you showering them with love, it can change their attitude and help them become better persons. It’s not always about us. We can always find happiness when we share happiness with others.
