LIFE IS A BEAUTIFUL GIFT

Have you ever thought about what life is, and you couldn’t give any precise definition?

Indeed, knowledge is power, and everyone lives in the reality of what he knows. The level of your knowledge makes you wise or foolish. Everyone at a point in time lacks a particular knowledge. It isn’t good or bad either. Nevertheless, it becomes lousy to the fault when you fail to learn.

I will give definite answers to your question as I show you the beauty of life as a gift.

Life is a Gift

Life is not just a gift but a beautiful gift. It is the best gift you can ever have. This makes it worth living and living well.

“Life is a gift, life is a test, life is a temporary assignment.” ~ Rick Warren

To this claim, you must understand that a gift is a present, either quantitative and/or qualitative, that you offer or you were offered without payment or return.

Equalizing this with life, you’ve been presented with this gift without pay. It is such an unfair advantage that every human being enjoys. Here is a simple equation; when you maximize the gift of life, you have more. This is in the double phase; when the gift of living is spent in a good way, you will have good returns, and when it is spent in a bad way, you will have bad returns.

This means a man is a determinant of what comes to him. He is the architect who designs what happens aftermath. You have been gifted with a beautiful grace of existence; the result after that is your designs.

However, it is worth noting the place of decision; you are the one in charge of what to do in this world 

This gift is not to be used anyhow; it must be jealously guided, utilized, and maximized. Life is a test or assignment; a success opens the door for another but better ones.

What makes Life Beautiful?

Life is beautiful when you are surrounded by good people. Men are prime value, and nothing can replace the function of a man. We are in the digital age, where AI and bots stride the street. Nonetheless, the gift of men is unparalleled.  This is why you feel comfortable and safe in a residential area, unlike traveling through a desert.

Life is beautiful when you are surrounded by nature. Looking at nature gives inspiration, hope, joy, and sweet memory. If you are down, depressed and tired, just a walk through the wonderful nature, play with nature, sightseeing and gaze!

Every moment is a gift, but when the moment passes, the gift is not gone. The real gift is the life and spirit within another.” ~ Donna Goddard, Prana

my new year resolution

My New Year resolution

Years ago, I had this lofty dream of becoming a millionaire within the next ten years. The desire was strong, and my goal was to carry out practical steps to achieve that dream. As December drew near, I quickly drew up my new year resolution, and top on the list was my desire to become a Millionaire.

The New year came, and different activities soon overshadowed my goals and dreams of becoming a millionaire. I never bothered to look up the diary where I wrote down my new year’s resolution because I never got to achieve half of what I wrote down.

it was a tough lesson back then, and the lessons I learned helped to shape me into the person I am today. The dream of becoming a millionaire is still fresh in my mind, but I have learned to approach issues differently.

As the year 2021, gradually winds down, and the New year beckons upon us, the temptation to draw up some New year resolution may nudge us from all sides. That’s okay if we don’t allow it to control the very essence of our life.

My resolution (even though I don’t bother writing it down) is to become a better version of myself in every area of my life. In my academics, finance, and career, the desire is to consolidate on whatever achievement I have made this year.

Dreams are good, especially when pursued with passion, but when dreams become obsessive in nature, they can become destructive. The same applies to New year resolutions. Let’s be kind to ourselves and avoid being too critical of our achievements.

Life is beautiful when we stop and start enjoying every moment we have. There are individuals who had amazing plans for next year (2022) and had written well-crafted New Year resolutions, to fuel their dreams. Unfortunately, they never lived to see the end of the year.

“Life is a long journey so enjoy the journey and make some beautiful memories along the way” If you are okay with writing New Year resolutions, go ahead and write. As for me, I know what I want to achieve and I will passionately go after each one of them, while I enjoy each moment life brings across my path.

Happy New Year friends

A Leader should Possess these amazing skills

A Leader should Possess these amazing skills

Introduction

A leader is someone who can rally people around him or her and make things better. Leadership is a trusted privilege given by followers. A leader is expected to reciprocate the trust and confidence bestowed on him/her, by ensuring that the followers are given due priority in all ramifications.

Good decision-maker

He must be actively involved in taking decisions either directly or indirectly.
This skill comes with time and gets better as the leader learns the fundamentals of leadership. It requires diligence and patience, as decisions that are hurriedly taken can eventually backfire.

Positive mental attitude

An optimist is someone who always believes things will get better with time. The ability to have a positive mental attitude will help position him for the greater task ahead. The stronger the mental attitude is, the more successful he becomes. It eventually rubs off positively on the followers.

Courage

Leadership is not for the faint-hearted. The ability to withstand pressure and demands can be connected to the amount of courage a supremo possesses. The opposite of courage is fear, and this must not be found in the life of any aspiring leader. Fear destroys, while courage builds confidence in the followers.

Strong and Energetic

Laziness can destroy anyone faster than physical sickness. When meetings are scheduled, engagements are fixed and traveling plans put in place, it requires strength and energy to accomplish. A healthy lifestyle will promote strength and energy in the life of a leader.

Be warm and receptive

When followers are not seeing the warmth and genuine care from their heads, it can lead to various negative chain reactions which will eventually consume the boss if not properly managed. Be ready to welcome the smallest member of your organization even at odd hours. That is the main reason why you are there in the first place. Pride should not be seen anywhere around you.

Integrity

This is one of the most important skills/virtue a leader must possess. Integrity has to do with trust and transparency. Followers must see you as someone who can be trusted with their resources and funds. Lack of integrity can easily destroy a leader and create a lack of confidence.

A good Image

Charisma is a function of a leader’s good image. When your image is tainted, it will weigh down heavily on your ability to carry your followers along. A good public image begins with your dress sense and also your conduct in public and private.

Disciplined

Discipline has to do with the ability of an individual to behave properly in public and private. Drinking, smoking, or indulging in extramarital affairs is not the hallmark of a disciplined leader. An exemplary lifestyle sets you apart and earns your respect as the boss.

Vision

A visionary leader will see danger ahead and strategically find a way to avoid it. Vision has to do with foresight-The ability to see beyond today. Vision is a key factor in the success of any leader. When ideas are birthed without visionary leaders to breathe life into them, such ideas die naturally.

Wisdom

Wisdom is the ability to apply knowledge garnered over the years into a useful purpose.
it will give a leader direction and purpose. Disputes are common features in various organizations, and the ability to handle these disputes with wisdom will enable the leader to become successful.











Hope in Difficult moments

Difficult moments never last forever

Life is a beautiful gift and as individuals, we must embrace every new day with joy and happiness. It may not be perfect or smooth sailing, but nevertheless, enjoy it to its fullest the best possible way you can.

Growing up years ago, I had so many difficult moments. These were moments when I thought I won’t be able to overcome. Some days were so difficult, that I felt overwhelmed with emotions and cried myself to sleep.

Life is a journey, and we are like passengers on a mission. Along the bumpy journey of life, there may be a few stops and some nasty bumps that may shake us a little bit. That is fine, if we understand these difficult moments will come and go.

How did I overcome my difficult moments?

Pretty good question I must say. I tried to always look at the bright side of life. It is not an easy task to do, however, especially when it’s so gloomy and there seems to be no ray of sunshine.

Still, I always see the positive in every negative situation I go through in life. It may never make sense then, but months or years later, it will dawn on you, why these things had to happen.

A key ingredient that can sustain us in times of difficulty, is hope. “Hope is important because it can make the present moment less difficult to bear. If we believe that tomorrow will be better, we can bear a hardship today”

Edema Peter: Hard work paved the way for my Loan move to ASVO FC

Life is all about putting in the extra effort. Making the most of every opportunity that comes your way. I love the way German-based Ghanian international put it: “A dream doesn’t become reality through magic. It takes sweat, determination, and hard work”

For Edema Peter, he attributed his recent loan move to the Benin Republic Premier League Side- ASVO FC, to the hard work, determination, and effort of his coach at Gbagada FC, Lagos, Nigeria.

The Ondo State-born footballer, who has had a fairy-tale rise in his footballing career, recently shared with me his story during a recent live chat on Instagram.

“Last season, I knew if I could do well and score goals, I will secure a move. I also knew if the video of my goals goes out there, I will move”

The hunger and drive to excel pushed him beyond limits and he indeed shone brightly with Gbagada FC, as he emerged Gbagada FC top scorer. In all competitions, he was involved in Sixteen goals. 

Edema scored fourteen goals and made two assists, scoring two hattricks in the process. The amazing fact about some of the goals he scored, is that 60% of those goals were scored aerially.

When asked about the secret of his aerial prowess, he opened this: “While growing up, I was nicknamed the “Head that burst the ball”, because I was always scoring via headers”.

Edema also shared how he always watched documentaries on Cristiano Ronaldo about scoring via headers. “I discovered even though I don’t have so much height, I do have jump power. I learned the principle of staying in the air while watching documentaries about Cristiano Ronaldo, and that helped improved my aerial prowess”

An excited Edema Peter, who is hoping to replicate his goal-scoring record with the Benin Republic club-side chipped in on how the loan breakthrough became a reality: “The work I put in last season created this opportunity for me in the Benin Republic. The video clips of the fourteen goals I scored were sent directly to the President of ASVO FC”

“Immediately he finished watching the video clips, he put a call through to Gbagada FC President, Akinyelu Olajide and contract negotiation was started”

The young striker who is currently hoping to thread the same path of foremost Nigerians like Razak Omotoyossi, Samson Akinyola, Mathieu Adeniyi, Wassiou Oladipupo, and Muri Ogunbiyi is currently on a Pre-season tour with ASVO FC.
