Dont be Stupid Money is Important

May 26, 2010 1 comment

The moment you believe being broke is normal that is the day your dreams have died, wake up man. As long as you think being broke is life and that is the way it is, a miserable excuse of life, well life will never really have a vision worth chasing. Being broke is not normal as we like to tell ourselves, it is a sign that something is wrong in our financial status, well that does not take a rocket scientist to notice. If you where born and your name says ” Poor” then you have every right to be poor. We should then knight you as Sir/Madam Broke. If you choose to be poor then you have every right not to dream big. We cannot stop trying ladies and gentleman. We take no prisoners in our quests for comfort. It is our God given right if you believe in such.

Let us be honest, money is important, without it you cannot take care of your kids, build your house, pay your bills, eat chocolate, get your hair done, and even have a romantic day out. If you think money is not important sell all your possessions and quit your job (Don’t be silly) When I was growing up we used to be told that love does not require money, they were right and they were lying to us (Well to me if there is no us in this article). Who can be broke and manage to sustain their relationship? How are you going to call her or him, how are you going to buy flowers, celebrate birthdays, valentines Christmas? (if you don’t call her someone else will, as simple as that) If you have children how are you going to take care of them? So let us get one thing out of the way and conclude money is important.

Now if money is important why then do we spend life pretending like it is not? How do we pretend money is not important well, for a start we never seem to want to chase dreams of making us wealthy enough, it is like we have given up? We lie to ourselves and pursue careers which will never get us anyway. Here is an interesting scenario. In a company that has a CEO, you will have more than a hundred people who would want that CEO or managers position. However the fact on the ground is that only one person will ever get that position after of course the current holder of that position has died or left or you murdered them. The funny thing is that we then go on dreaming of taking another person’s job yet that person is part of the furniture in that institution. Wake up man.’

You there who is stuck in the Diaspora are you there because you like it or because you are looking for money? And you madam who hates her job but has to work anyway why are you still there? Ok money is important but I suppose we need to be smart about it and make it work for us. We can not go on like this, well at least I cannot. If you think money is not so important in your top three things in material things, just ask the churches to stop taking offerings, governments to stop taxes and of course go to work and not receive a salary.

Money Eyes


When you look outside the window do you see dollars or do you see trees, buildings, people, and cars amongst other things. Most likely we see objects through money eyes. The type of eyes you have will determine the type of dream you will achieve. Subconsciously when we look at things we do not see them for what they are, but we see them according to the value they have. When we think of our dreams of buying houses we think of the amounts we need in cash in order to buy the house. Achieving our dreams is based on the type of eyes we have. When I say eyes I am talking about the eyes in our minds.

The type of eyes you have will determine the type of dream you will achieve. If you have money eyes you will most probably achieve very few things in your life time at a very slow rate. Money eyes are eyes which see everything according to paper notes or numbers. So when you see a very beautiful house that you would like you do not see the house but you subconsciously or consciously calculate the value of the house and dismiss your dreams of ever owning it. In other words you look at the house and all you see is the amounts associated with the house and you tell yourself that you can never afford it. People who are talented also do the same. A person may have the best singing voice but they may never become an artist because they see the road to becoming an artist as requiring a certain value which they cannot afford; which is why some parents tell their children to give up some dreams because they see it in terms of the cost it would have in order to get to it. People with money eyes see things in the short term. They see the process more than the end.

Now, they are those who see with the naked eyes, these types of people see things for what they are. A beautiful house is a beautiful house. They are not concerned on how much it costs to get the house they are more concerned on the beauty of the house. When they speak of their dreams they do not speak on how much it is going to cost but speak of how beautiful it is. Make no mistake they understand the value of the house but they understand the desire more than the challenge of the desire. They see the end in mind more than the process of getting there.

Then you have those people who just walk in the road and never see anything. These I will call the veiled eyes. They walk in the road but never notice the building around them. They never see the sign hanging on the building, they see it but it doe not impress on them anything. They see the cars driving past them, they see the cars but it never occurs to them to notice type or detail. These people are small minded. They never try anything new, they live in their own small worlds where life is a struggle and everyone belongs somewhere, hence they belong where they are. They do not achieve great things except to wake up, work, eat and sleep. They lives are routine from the day they leave school and there is nothing to write home about. They have no great dreams at all; all their dreams were abandoned when they were still at school. They talk about reality all the time, yet reality has no limits.

In short money eyes achieve things at a slow rate because hey always wait for money to accumulate before they pursue their dreams. Naked eyes achieve a lot because they do not depend on money but rather believe money depends on them. Veiled eyes achieve nothing interesting because they have no sense of dreams and achieving them.

The Most Persistent


Everyone has a vision and a dream. At the same time every dream and vision has its challenges or effort required to make it happen. For every dream that exists you can be sure that nature rewards the most persistent. The ones that refuse to give up and the ones that are always looking for a solution to their challenges are the ones that get the joy of receiving their dreams come true. If we ever listen to stories from people who are now making it in society we hear stories of hard work and belief that they would make it. We hear of the many things they had to go through in order to get to where they are today. Every dream requires persistence especially in the face of opposition. Dreams do not come true because we dream them, dreams come true because we dared to believe in them.

What is Life About


Honestly though what is life about? Have you ever thought about the answer or do we just live? We are born today and we die in the tomorrow, then what was the point to the life?  Could it be that life is just breathing, or perhaps it is just doing what you can? If it was like that then life would be shallow, so everyday we tell ourselves that there is more to life than what we see everyday. We tell ourselves there is more to work, there is more to watching movies, more to just eating and drinking but the truth is that we never really discover the answer or we just resign ourselves to wondering about it then we die.

Then again maybe it is possible to discover what life is about by starting from the basics. We have bodies that require food and shelter, so yes life is about houses and food. We require money to buy these so yes life is about money. We require company so yes life is about friends. We desire families, so yes life is about marriage. We desire to know that there is something greater than us so yes life is about God. We desire entertainment so yes life is about getting entertained. Sooner than later we will discover that there is a trend here, but wait here is another one, we desire to feel immortal so we believe in the after life. Ok, let us now talk about the trend.

The thing is we want all these things so that we are happy. It is that simply. Everything we do we are trying to get that piece of rest in which we can find happiness. We want comfort, love, peace, filling, understating, sensitivity, humor, adrenaline rush, and all sorts. The funny thing is that we die still chasing these things because when we think we have it all we discover we want more. Ever noticed that a billionaire still wants to expand his empire, every government always has a new programme or law to add. A man who has a family and steady job, house and cars still tries to get more than he has. It is all because we believe happiness is in our achievements. Our happiness is attached to things but the thing about things is there is always something better or that they change or that they die. Why not attach happiness to happiness, now that is a crazy idea. Happiness is something we bring out of ourselves and share with something or someone we think deserves it because we think it is worth it, for example a car, a wife, a child, a job or whatever you think. Here is a little secret of life, we already have the happiness inside us. All we do is we want a reason to make it come out, so we say if I had a car I would be happy yet the car when it is in the shop it does not own any happiness. If anything, someone else could own and not be happy at all. What you think makes you happy in someone else’s hands could make them miserable. The point, there is nothing in this earth which has no living spirit which brings happiness. Happiness is found in living things, they already have it.

This Boat Life

May 18, 2010 2 comments

Your life is a like a boat traveling on an ocean. Around it is water which stretches for miles on miles. No matter what the size of the boat is, you need to make sure you have the right people with you after all it is a long journey. Have the right compass that shows you direction. Have a map for which you know your destination. Be able to tell the sings of a storm coming and when there is going to be calm. Have adequate rations and of course know how to fish. If you lack these sooner or later you will have to dock on an island because you could not get to your destiny due to lack of direction, map, food rations and fishing skill.

When storms come you do not go with them you fight to keep your journey’s direction. When other boats pass you by on their own journeys you just do not follow them in case they are going to a different direction. Know your boat and its capabilities. Make sure your sails are working and the type of conditions they work in. Only anchor in permanently when you arrive at your destination. When it seems like you are running out of food learn how to fish and how to get from islands nearby by do not anchor permanently.

Keep you compass in working order, and your map close to you. Never let it out of your site. Remind yourself where you are going and keeping checking your map and compass. Only go in the direction that will get you to your destination. Do not be swayed by the winds and the currents of the oceans. Fish where you can but do not make it your career or you will be tempted to become a fisherman for other people. Learn the ocean and the atmosphere around you. Understand the winds and the nights, the days and the mornings. Right your journey down in your captains log book. Do not lend your captaincy of your ship to anyone else except you.

Be on the look out for pirates who want to hijack your boat and your crew. Protect your crew with all your might. Empower everyone so that they have the same vision. Make sure your crew has the same visions. Life is like a boat on a vast sea, are you prepared.

Chemicals of Love: Part 2

May 12, 2010 2 comments

The type of chemical bond that occurs between elements determines the type of chemical compound which is going to be produced. Each element or rather each atom must either be prepared to share, give or receive electrons in order for there to be a new compound formed. So when elements come together they form a partnership which has mutual benefit and coexistence to form something that appears so different.

The marriage equation is defined as one plus one equals one, which is the same thing chemically, because when you bring two elements together like Hydrogen and Oxygen you get H20 which is water, a new substance which looks completely different from the individualistic elements. Now when two people get together they can form different types of bonds, which for the sake of this article space let us deal with covalent and ionic bonds. In a covalent bond the two individuals share their electrons. In other words if I had patience in me as a possession and you had courage, my patience is still  in me but becomes part of you and your courage is still in you but becomes part of me. When the two come together a person who never had courage is able to stand in courage because their partner in the chemical bond has courage also.

On the other hand there is the ionic bond where one element must be willing to give its electron to another so that there can be a partnership by attraction. Simply put one element has a need which the other element can provide. So the element that has need receives an electron (s) and the other one gives of its own. The two become bonded together. Ever heard of the damsel in distress who gets rescued by the knight?

Why do people who get married suddenly discover that they are not compatible? Ionic and Covalent bonds are examples of strong chemical bonds. They are strong because there is elementary electron sharing, giving and receiving.  The result is a mutual bond. On the other hand weak chemical bonds occur between molecules which already have a bond with something else forming another bond with other elements. It is like a person who is in love with their ex-girlfriend getting married to another woman, or a person who worships her business getting married to someone who has no interest in the business at all. The result is just a mixture of people attracted together but whose chemical bond is very weak.

Whether we like it or not attraction is very important in a relationship, it defines how things are going to go. Attraction must thus be at the different levels, physically and spiritually. When two elements form a strong bond they form partnership to fulfill a purpose full of certain characteristics. This is why for example it does not say that Adam got a wife but it first says he got a partner, who was flesh of his flesh and bone off his bone. She was a helpmate which denotes strong intent to fulfill the same purpose in life. If two elements bond together but try to achieve their own different individualistic motives the result is divorce and it will happen.

The best advice I can give on chemicals of love is that if you are not yet a complete individual with a complete personality do not get married, RUN. If you are not developed in character and you get married then all of a sudden you start finding your own character you might just discover that the person you are sleeping with is a stranger to you, is such cases you will have lots of work to do to keep that marriage. If you marry a person who is not yet fully grown in terms of personality and knowing what they want you are going to have a lot of work keeping that marriage going. Chemical bonds are created from elements which have their own properties and are willing to share, receive and give of their own in order to become a new stronger compound. They are not made from elements which are just trying to find their own personalities by joining someone else. The moment you try to find your own self by combining with another person it is not going to be pretty.

There is a need at this time to define the difference between marrying someone because you are attracted them with a need and marrying someone because you are trying to find your own character. Cannot spoil Part 3 now.

Where Is My Salary


There is the category of the underground salary. Now, this salary is never seen in terms of what it achieves, all we ever hear is that the person is working. We see the person waking up and toiling the whole day but in terms of any difference happening to the person’s status, there is nothing. It’s called underground because it is not seen, it operates from a level which cannot be seen.

 After this level we have the surface salary. Here we see the effects of the salary because it is on the surface. We see the objects and a few things but usually everyone steps on these types. It’s common like the soil which is on the surface. It is for everyone to see and everyone can reach it if they try hard enough. Once in a while, if it works smart enough, this salary can grow on the surface to become a mountain which people begin to respect. It is not always easy to get to the mountain level though. (Are we all here?)

The advanced level is the sky salary. With this one, it is untouchable. It soars like the clouds and goes wherever it wants. It even soars above the mountains. It can build whatever it wants. It can blow wherever it wants. It owns the climate for which other salaries can operate in.  It is truly as we can say magnificent.  So where do we fit.
