Dear Religous fanatics, atheists are not satanists


Religion confusion

Human beings of sound mind and character have the freedom of fundamentally questioning anything that comes their way. They will instigate wars or embark on meticulous researches just to find that microscopic organism that results  to pandemics of disease. When things get fascinating they look around and  come to  realization of having exhausted everything within their  scope, a tendency of finding out what’s beyond them begins to cripple in. They will even go to the extent of questioning the existence or inexistence of God-their creator. This is mind boggling. They will ask who God is, and why he chooses to remain silent when his people are suffering and dying in Aleppo,Syria.This got me engrossed, for this  I wanted to share this masterpiece with you  my dear blog subscribers.

In reference to the subject- I know there is a cryptic power that runs the  nature, there is an enigmatic  potency  that keeps the earth rotating on its orbit and there is a reason as to why a day only has 24 hours ,not more, not less. If at all this force and power comes from that super natural being –called God, then to me God exists.

Any person trying to justify inexistence of God cannot win their argument  before mentioning ‘God’ several times. The mere mention of the word ‘GOD’  in their debates  presupposes His existence .This would  simply denote that they are aware that he exists but choose to act blind, force their way in, collect all sorts of evidence-just  in attempt to prove  that indeed  God does not exist. Atheists are so much infatuated in God that they believe doesn’t exist than in professing their own faith.

They will spend time   disapproving other people’s religions at the expense of their own.Atheists -just a small portion of humans trying to impose their beliefs and fabrications on people who have not yet made a  firm decision on what faith ,dogma and code of belief to subscribe to.

Atheists could be among the few educated  geeks that the world has. They have all scientific facts, proofs and substantiations against any utterance made to demean their values and beliefs. They have even made it level higher; taking some theology and philosophical classes, just to arm themselves with defense. If you are a very strong Christian, they will look for something to intimidate and make you believe that your religion and indirectly –your God  is of no value.

For instance look at these

  • If you worship a God who drowned his children for being disobedient during the time of Noah, then you have no rights to criticize my morals ‘’

They get to a point of expounding on some particular Bible clauses they believe are self-contradictory and illogical.

For instance there is this

  • God from his own wisdom had to be shown which doors belonged to Israelites during the Passover night.

This is very true, if you can recall the incident; All Israelites were instructed to smear their doorpost with blood to be identified by the angel of death.

Linda Beatty a very passionate American atheist once said that God is very powerful but he is not all powerful to prove that he exists.

Contrary–majoring on Christianity as it’s the best religion known to me; we have an allotment of indoctrinated and brainwashed religious fanatics, who want to live on earth like it is heaven. Partly, I blame the society we were brought up in. A society that respects shrines meant to venerate the ‘superior being’. Nobody has guts to point a finger at them.No one can question the integrity of their pastors, priests and other ‘men of God.’ Even when you buttonhole them in quest of elucidation on certain sections of the Bible; they have a tendency of thinking that you are questioning their ‘holy calling’.

Certain clauses of the Holy Bible indicate that Adam and Eve gave birth to Cain, Abel and Seth; but then we are later informed that they got married: The question is, whom did they marry? Did they marry their own sister?Which amounts to incest? Think about it.

I sometimes wonder why we fight so hard to champion for Christianity –an imported religion that is quite foreign to us. The Bible itself was written by believers and not free

thinkers. To know whether God exists or not, you don’t need a Quran or a Bible or even a padre, sit back at the comfort of your balcony, watch  and listen as the nature speaks to you . It will tell you how well organized its maker-God is.

However as we live in a free world, It is so archaic, barbaric and an exhibition of narrow mindedness to discriminate or subject anyone to prejudice on basis of their religious inclination. Everyone at their free will has a right to worship and venerate his own divine  being.

To sum up, religion is  our today’s ultimate science fiction –yet another alternate universe where lies are seen as reality and reality seen to be lies. A thought of my own- better to live believing in God and at the end find there is none, rather  than live believing that God doesn’t exist and find him at the end .

Superiority Complexity can be cured only by the honesty of humility


black-man-interview-suit.pngSuperiority complexity is to say that you do not expect people to look up to you if you always look down upon them. A day which I can get a whiff of from distance will come when you shall become the greatest person you have always dreamed of.

The most successful business man

The most renowned footballer

The most celebrated musician

The most charismatic pastor

The most fortuitous media anchor

And as the case may be, the president of the most powerful nation on earth.

 All your life objectives shall be accomplished. Get all academic certificates,marry the most stunning woman , get the most well behaved children, reside in the most expansive estates and  presumably drive in Rolls Royce. You will plausibly, be at the pick of your life and the feeling that you are on top of the world will begin to cripple in. You will feel like you don’t need more status than you already have. I know it might look like a big deal but you know there is nothing impossible in this world.

About what is impossible or not gets not to be the business of the day. Now let me get a space in this blog site and now ask, what will you take those great successes and life achievements for? Will you let them overtake you? Will you allow the newly acquired status make you forget people that you knew?

Yes, a feeling of superiority or mightiness will always be there, and that’s irrefutable but will the superiority drug you? It’s my main agenda I want to discuss it with you today. Dear blog subscribers. In my entire life which I won’t hoodwink   and say that is long to have seen everything but I can avow without any doubts or whatsoever, that I have seen illustrious  ‘kings’ who had prodigious ‘empires’ being converted into powerless clan’s men. I have seen foremen ending up to be hawkers in the streets and off drives of Nairobi. I have seen a boss’s driver owning fleets of cars. Am not trying to talk about humility, no! I have already discussed this in my earlier posts. All am trying to shed light on is that; whoever you are despising today might be tomorrow’s mightiest king. Won’t you be ashamed and remorseful bowing before him when tomorrow comes?

PEOPLE ALSO READ: Live In the reality, forget about the past It’s not your portion

Conditions in life are never permanent .Today you have it all, tomorrow all that you had is gone. Who will be there to lend a hand to you? It could be those you are down trodding and treating them with contempt. You never know. Worst of it is when you have terribly failed and degraded but you can still not accept the ‘new life’, what is termed as mid life crisis. The new ‘reality’ .We all know that if you argue with the reality at the end you lose. At This point you begin to act so arrogantly in an effort to mask all of your inferiorities, failures and shortcomings .You cannot with stand all that shame. Such an act is what we term as superiority complex- a psychological defense system in which a person’s feelings of bigness tries to counter his or her feelings of failure .When nothing in their life seems to work they vacillate  and begins to blame anything and anyone  around them . They start blaming the environment they are in, friends they keep, country they are in and certainly they blame everything! They know that nothing is wrong about them.

Even so when they know they are Wong, they will never stand to be guided or corrected, for in any case they know it all. To them all they know is all that there is to know, full stop. No room for alteration or modification.

Am pretty sure that you have come across them. They look down upon everyone from a great height, they find by all means a way to keep themselves a level higher. They see you as an inferior or second rate being that props them. In actual sense they treat you like you never exist.  They forget you so fast

I say, Superiority complexity is a personal disorder, in case you come across anyone with it, please call 911 and immediately order for an ambulance, rush them to the nearest therapy centre, put them under an intensive care unit.. These people need a very serious therapy. Keep them distance before they infect you with the disorder. It was pun intended though!

Let me not look like am advocating for inferiority complexity. No! There is a whopping difference between superiority and inferiority complexity, but not an iota is good. Personally I know am inferior to Bill gates financially, Usain bolt in a 100 M race, LeBron James in playing basketball. But that should never make me feel inferior, by this am trying to hammer a sensible point.’Knowing’ and ‘feeling’ are two totally different things. Knowing makes you accept facts and things as they are , but feeling makes you know that you cannot stand a chance Of becoming.

Steer clear of superiority complexity   , stay away from inferiority complexity, but always engender a high self confidence. This makes you believe in yourself as a unique being.

As I wind up the talk, never feel so small to make a difference .Remember that a tiny mosquito can make the mightiest president on earth have a sleepless night!

Live In the reality, forget about the past It’s not your portion


”Live in the reality, get out of an idealistic world- a world that exists only in your mind.” Ng’ang’a The Blogger

imageI came across a businessman who was going through a hell of life. He had faced multiple losses within the same duration. To start with: He was filing his business for bankruptcy. As if that was not enough, one fateful evening he received a call informing him that the building where his two children and wife resided collapsed. Rescue operations were launched and two days later it was confirmed that they were all dead. What a loss? Business down! Family finished. Isn’t it such a heavy unbearable blow to him?
Is there hope for life after this?

Someone said that everything happens for and with a reason. But our greatest fear is that we don’t know that reason.  We have many of us who find themselves in life that seems like all doors are closed. No single door makes way for us. A t this point let me deem some lime light: Have you interminably heard about God’s test? He did that to Jesus who was his son, who are we not to be tested?

I would like to say that God was the first programmer, he does problem computation and his codes never crack. He doesn’t give alternatives on how to execute a given command; all of them follows one prescribed direction and that’s why most of our doors get locked.

I hark back to a day when I lost my precious gadget a time that I was not expecting any cash from anyone at any time soon.   And bear in mind that the gadget was so vital to me. I was so frail that whoever came with a suggestion on how to help me recover it, I fell into the trap. Luckily, I came across one particular guy who up to day I feel that God used him NOT to help me.
He came up with a nebulous innuendo suggestion on how he could have helped  me seek a sorcerer. A necromancer, who would help me recover my gadget. The fella was just but enticing me with fake empty and promises. He was lying it all; mendacious indeed, I saw it in his eyes but I chose to remain tongue-tied.

    (People Also Read : Refuse to die when it’s not your turn!!)

Following him for weeks, assuming miracles out of nowhere would happen, the obvious happened. I reached a point in time when I resolved to give it all to God. I asked him to take on from where I left. I was already at the end of tunnel but I could not see any light. At that juncture, I was dumbfounded by how things started to unfold.
He pointed for me the only door that was open. I got a part time job that earned me some good cash the same day I got a precious gadget. Before got it, I thought of how I would be moving from town A to B on tenterhooks that I will one day find it. Can that happen? Chances are almost negligible. Trust me.

I also ruminated of how I would get a ‘mganga’ who would help me locate my exquisite phone back. I was not saying YES to the reality of the matter. This made me hurt, it made me fear what was to come. It only saw me distorted, disconnected and almost certainly destroying the life that I have taken so long to establish. Accepting reality, declaring that the past is not your portion and not accepting to dwell in the past is the best tip to keep the tricky life moving on and always ensuring that one is not a victim of circumstances.

Do not resist if it has happened. The future still awaits for you, rectify where you can. Living in the reality is for the businessman to say that “I know it’s hard to live a life without my wife, children, but there is nothing I can do to bring them back.
Live in the real world, don’t hope for miracles to work. Struggle to get A’s in God’s test for once you excel in them everything will be given back to you in double portions.
By the way God only tests whether you can live without what you assume sustains your life.
As a valediction; do not dwell in past, that is not your portion.
Do not procrastinate that’s only done by those who believe that tomorrow belongs to them.
Live today it’s your present as you keep in mind that your past mistakes are meant to guide, not to define you.

Envying the Child I was.


It’s a matter of you leading/following or getting out of the way ”. Ng’ang’a The Blogger

crawling baby @ngangathebloggerThere was a time I was and I used to be a weaning baby, yes a toothless child. Those were the days I was not fathoming what really goes on around the world. I did not know much about planet earth. I only had a vague glimpse of my mother and a few people who used to baby-seat me.

All that I experienced during that time was absolute irresistible love, everybody wanted to poke my face telling me, “Grow, grow child.”

Time drifted slowly, I gradually started having a handle on environment which I was in. The Kikuyu accent started to imbibe and not long I started pronouncing ‘green’ as ‘gleen . I could not tell what the difference between ‘L’ and ‘R’ was in terms of elocution, for in any case no one sees the picture while inside the frame. I later came to find that’s the real identity of Kikuyus you know Mount Kenya’s chaps.

Time to get schooled came, I entered class enthusiastic and zealous but worst of it , I didn’t know why I was in school. Maybe age dictated?  Or my parents forced me. Time went on and a little while I started realizing that being in school makes one a doctor, a lawyer, an engineer and less than that was an abomination. So I started singing, “ when I grow up I would like to be a doctor!” Not because I had the doctor genes in my veins but because the atmosphere by then dictated so. As a child I was never conscientious of my life. I cared less. I didn’t have to worry so much about myself, someone else was. My mother was at the forefront in ensuring that I was as much comfortable as possible.

I was innocent : Very innocuous indeed. Ask Jesus, if his second coming was during my childhood era, I could have gotten an uninterrupted entry to the so-said glory and paradise of heaven .

                                  PEOPLE ALSO READ : Its Only When you are Humble

But today things have changed, taken a rather  new course. I would say that, today am held responsible of my actions and moves. . Today am required to set my own principles and guidelines to adhere to. Am always planning and laying strategies ahead of time on how to make my life a success .Things that I never I did as a youngster. I have to say a strong NO to some things because I have already said YES to some other better ones.

Peoples’ pseudo –love has faded away . Nobody shows their love and compassion towards me. Others doing this deliberately because I have my own unique core values that I uphold and whoever doesn’t embrace them doessn’t become part of me. I apply jig-saw fit theory, if you do not fit then suit yourself. It’s a matter of you leading/following or getting out of the way. No wonder I have very few friends around me.

Let me strongly bear a witness that I envy infancy life by all means. A good feeling, when the entire society is minding about your well being among numerous other things. But who said I was to forever remain a child? I am now in realistic world where am compelled to face world on my own. A lone ranger. I have to hold fort of my life, liking it as it is and fighting very hard to change where I can.

When all is gone and seems like nothing is what it used to be, God almighty’s  love and care remains unchanged . He guides us only when we accept to be in him.

It’s Only When You are Humble


Being  Humble Might Open  Heaven for You

“No matter how small, humble people will always make you feel important when you are around them.”

most-humble.jpgHave you ever taken some time off your busy schedule to do a quick overview?  You look back and see how good those people you thought you were better than are doing?  You were only advantaged by an element of time. And if I may ask, where are they now? Are you still better than them? I guess not, they are far much ahead of you.

If someone took Joseph father of Jesus frivolously because he was a carpenter, then it later turned out to be a rude shock when Baby Jesus was born for he became father of the most powerful man and savior of the mankind. As a leader be humble enough to listen to complains of your subject. Do not treat them as nonpersons because you do not know who they will turn out to be. You might be despising the person to become the next big thing. You never know. You are at the top right now, but is there a guarantee that you will forever remain there? How do you want to be taken when you will no longer be defined by your present-day position, titles and pseudo-powers?

In my entire life, I won’t say that am old to have seen everything but I can assure you that I have witnessed a Land lord degrading to a tenant and a tenant becoming a real estate dealer.  Among key things upheld by the tenant who becomes a landlord (keeping other factors of success constant) it’s just humility .Being subservient enough to listen. Now what ruins the landlord who becomes a tenant (Keeping other factors of failing constant) is pride. So egotistical that they do not give room for alterations. They say their decisions are final.

If you were or you still are a Forensic Science student at Kenyatta University you must have come across an African geek-I call him, wisdom centered chap-Dr. Mwonjuria.He had a shrewd saying that dwelt so much on humility.

He says,

  • Woe onto those who do not show humility they will find themselves being humiliated.

  • Whoever is not humble, shall be humbled.

 

                                     (People Also Read:  Success Has a Process)

I concurred with him for the reason that anyone who takes pride in their current status, either wealth, power and titles never had nice endings. There are a million reasons why one needs to be humble but here are two chief ones

To start with, it’s only when one is humble that he is able to learn a lot. A person who never exhibits even an inch of humility can never tolerate the other person, whether senior or not to explain any sentiments to them. And when he does he assumes Know-it-all character. He finishes words for you. You would say he has a talent in reading people’s minds.

Right on their face I would say they have a bad attitude. Whoever has a bad attitude is never teachable. He doesn’t give his mind an allowance to grasp a new concept. Humility is to say that am humble enough to listen even if I know most of the things that you are talking about, let me be attentive I may get something that I have never heard.

That’s the right attitude.

Secondly it’s only a humble person who celebrate gifting in other people. They appreciate those who have got outstanding attributes in their respective fields. They tell you “Congrats”, “Keep up” to when you deserve it. They can quickly apologize, say ‘’sorry’’ and promise that will never happen again. Not that they are weak, but only an indicator that they are humble enough to swallow their pride and let go their ego.

No matter how small, humble people will always make you feel important when you are around them.

Be there down to earth and you will just be dumbfounded on how things will take new course in your life.

Success Has a Process


Start Small, End  Big.”

crawling baby @ngangatheblogger

A crawling baby. Photo Credit: Nick Chiles

When a child is born and immediately starts talking and walking, wont you be startled?
Won’t you say this is associated with sorcery or conspiracy? Why?
This answer is quite simple? Typically, as soon as the baby is born, he should crawl, talk, walk, and among numerous others.
So, at the present you have a dream of becoming the next big thing? Yeah, I know, but this won’t happen overnight. You have to assume fortitude of a Saint and work so hard and objectively to get to where you want to be. I have always been tempted to covet, though it’s a sin, this particular Mercedes S class, and so anytime I think about getting a job this thought comes also hand in hand.
When I receive my first salary I will ensure that I have purchased myself this Car of my dream.
But I forget to ask myself the many years it has taken for that chap to get money to own the same car.
All that we see is a full packaged movie that goes for an hour or two but we don’t take time to find out what was behind the scene. A lot was done, some scenes were done up to fifty times before coming up with the best clip from just a single scene. what an embarrassment!
At this point lets agree to drop our heightened expectations and we start working on our dreams. Not just a mere desire.
I met someone who was passing judgment on my very blogs in the name of making them look more enticing, her advice never fell on deaf ears, however I had only one message for him.
“A child is never born with teeth.”
Let me grow,allow me to build muscles, am not yet up to that level. You are raising me up higher than I am. An element of time is always the best and better still when God is the timer.

Wait for the yeast to work, a day, which I can get a whiff of from far is coming when will be fully baked. Keep in mind that a butterfly aided to get out of its cocoon spend rest of its time crawling. I don’t want to spend rest of my time crawling when am bequeathed with aptitude to fly.

There is a valid reason as to why rites of passage follows a certain order. You are born, you get initiated, you marry and later on you die. There is a logic behind this.
And if by chance you miss out on one of this stages you will go back there and you will pay dearly.
A popular Benga Musician Ken Wa Maria during his interviews was asked how he lends a hand to those who are under him and he said
“When I see you have a talent and you have really worked diligently under me, I assist you. I offer you a few guitars and drums set to go and start your own Orchestra Band
However anytime he did this he was ending up regretting for the reason that those he assist ends up hurling insult at him. Saying that he deceived them. But then why?
When they now go to face the real market (i.e. music industry) on their own they usually assume that its a downhill and when it doesn’t work out at all, they hurl insults at him.
From this encounter, the spanner boys around him do not consult to know where to start from and where to start they just want to find themselves superstars in a short span of time. But that can’t work!

You get the first salary, you want to do everything with it: Buy your dream house, live your best life .That can’t work either! Be patient, plant seeds of your dreams, weed them against any possible distractor. Ultimately your dream will just end up being what you have wanted it to  turn out to be.
What do populace say when they see your driving your own pricey car within a short while after securing yourself a job? Sure bet they start saying you are either an illuminati or a wanted robber. And one would ask why? Everybody knows that in success you have channels to follow before we honor you as one.
Starting small is the best way to go. It doesn’t make sense to see an influential person degrading, losing dignity and great conferred titles and winds up by becoming an unimportant person. A trivial one indeed.
Be energized, do more and more. Once you are done do not settle upon the first victory remember many tongues are in-waiting to proclaim that the first one was just but a luck.
In Japan soon after second world war Kaizen principle was introduced by by-then government to help the country reinstate their badly hit economy .The principle fundamentally revolved around making continuous improvement, in a long-term approach by working systematically seeking to achieve small and incremental changes in processes in order to improve efficiency and quality.

The point am driving home; start small and keep moving forward even if it means just one step.
Haba na haba hujaza kibaba Swahili men said this long ago.
Remember we only have 26 alphabets and 10 digits but we are able to combine those words and digit to come up with books that are up to thousand of pages.
Don’t fear to start small.
Even if it’s in business there is such nothing like small money.

Do not be afraid,
Rise up today, start with the small  that you have and before long you will bequeath what you have not.

Exams are Just But Part Of The Journey Of Life , Destination Is Still in our Hands!!


Let Not Your Life Be Dictated By Your Academic Failures.

kcse.jpg

Students sitting for a national exam

Ask Whoever sat for Kenya Certificate Of Secondary education (K. C. S. E) national exams in year 2015 knew what fear and tension means.
All of them were pregnant with expectations, others were not worried much by the grade they would score, they prayed most to the deity they hold dear that their exam should not be canceled.
Wednesday of  that week  (2nd March 2016 the day before release of K.C.S.E) the eave of the release of the national exams the aforesaid students can tell you how viciously fear gripped them ,their stomachs went hollow. The fear of failing surpassed the joy of passing. And overcoming it was near impossible.
Finally the results were out and all students who had gotten excellent grades came on our screens to elucidate on meaning of hard-work and the virtue of having faith in God.
Those who failed had their own excuses.
Their apparent reasons being being crystal clear
Even the blind saw what happened last year when students were sitting for their exams.
Who have forgotten about the outrageous cheating cases and enormous exam leakages?
A student was at wanton liberty to see a paper that was to be done the following day.
Whatsapp messages and images were circulating all over cyber space ,it only needed you to have some pocket data, you get connected and from there on it was not hard to receive exam leakage in advance.
Later on after the release of the results, the “lucky” students scored excellent grades and they vehemently came out in large numbers to celebrate and you are left wondering what they were celebrating.
But in a form of plethoric irony were they really celebrating their hard earned honest results?  Or were they magnificently jubilating upon the best students and schools in cheating?  I dare ask.
Those who never passed were considered idiots in that they cannot memorize what they saw on that paper some hours before the exam.
This grades are given such a weighty importance that if you don’t score to satisfaction the only suitable advice that would be laid upon you is to repeat to give it a second shot.
Others decides to go an extra step going back to form three assuming that’s where they lost track.
All of them struggling to get A’s supposedly because if you get the said grades you are going to be admitted to some our top ranked universities and pursue the most lucrative and competitive courses in Kenya like Engineering, Medicine, Law, Forensic science amongst numerous others.

I have never up to date known who said that getting A’s is a guarantee of future success.
This is a notion which has been created, it never started yesterday and so I don’t aim to end it today.
It was never started by one person and so I alone cannot be able to end it or can i?
There are some who utilize their academic abilities to the maximum and when it’s appears as not pre-requiscitively enough they decide to raise it a notch higher by any means possible,so don’t be puzzled when you see them cheating.
A student whose best ability is to get a B-decides to cheat and lucky enough they get those excellent grades –A’s to be specific and so the big question is: what will happen when they are admitted to do a course that is not equivalent to their know-how?
And wonder why students taking architecture, Forensics, medicine are ever retaking and re-retaking units.
Am not insinuating that getting A’s is bad, you will be surprised when you take a glance at my result slip to find that in almost all the tested subjects I scored plain A’s and even currently I do pass my exams, but I refuse to be defined by them.I consider myself too brilliant to be defined by a single paper. Your ingenuity cannot be defined by an examination. It is unfair that after four or sometimes five years of studying, everything you learn gets down to a two-hour paper. An A child will be of great use to you and me. Well we can’t avoid knocking at their doors at Doctor’s plaza or flying in his jumbo540 planes.

An A which is genuinely worked for has not lost its meaning, l believe what has lost meaning is that A awarded to a D material that never worked for it. So let me not look like am mocking the fruits of hard work.
We have revolutionized our education systems from knowledge gaining institutions to exam-centered institutions.
That’s why after finishing school most people consider doing academic burning. They totally forget about what they were taught.
I blame it all on our education system. A child is taken to school with one motivational motto   ” Education is the key to life”  but no one bothers to elaborate further what that means. How will it continue being key to life when a child is surrounded by a filthy rich thieves  and  at the same time poor graduates?

Education is just a basis of life and not a means. It should be a platform where one discovers their potential and limitations in order to make wiser decisions with regards to their future but unfortunately an A grade is the target that we all were trained to achieve, anything less than that was/is an abomination. I still have a strong conviction that we need to revert our education systems to the purpose they were supposed to serve or else we wouldn’t have proper doctors to treat us or qualified architects to design our skyscrapers. It would be of enormous importance if we all came to to the realization that we work in synergism.
A millionaire who had a C can’t perform a surgery on his/her heart in case of heart problem, it’s the cardiologist who will rise to the occasion.

We have different roles to play. Quality of grades doesn’t matter what you do with them  does.Our lives shouldn’t be dictated by our academic achievements or failures.
Become an all rounder life has a lot to explore.
Have you ever calculated how far your talent can take you?

Three things My 21 Years Of Age Have Taught Me


  • “You have a legacy to protect so proceed with caution”

            Ng’ang’a The Blogger 

21ST BIRTHDAY.jpg

Monday 15th February 2016 marked my 21st birthday.

All of my great friends – friends to die for gathered to celebrate me .

Each one of them had an unsimilar version  of who  i was to them.

We enjoyed it and it was really astounding.

 

Period!! That was the birthday.

As friends made the scene colourful and lovely there was a point at issue that was lingering in my mind and it really took sometime for me to unravel it  but thank God at last i got  the way out .

The question was – what has my 21 years stay on Earth Taught Me?

And here are the teachings i have gotten,

  1. NEVER GROW BIG FOR GOD.

I have made, though not more, rounds here in Kenya ;I have interacted with a lot of people ranging from prominent and celebrities to impecunious poverty stricken folks residing in dilapidated slums of Kiandutu and i have come to a subtle conclusion that no one successful makes it when they detach themselves from God.

Humility is the key here, when one humbles himself before God, God makes him stand before Men.

Someone said that “Our best-no matter how good it will never be complete if we leave God out of the picture.

Its only when a creature connects itself with its creator that it gets to know its purpose.

Since the creator have got the original plans of the creature.Connect yourself to  God and sure enough you will know your purpose in this life.

 

   2.Always develop a positive Mindset.

Mindset is that picture that we create towards all that we come across. This is what most people would loosely term as ATTITUDE. A positive mindset enable you to achieve even when it is seemingly impossible.

A positive frame mind is your vehicle to success . Its the determinant of how  you respond to challenges, approach change and deal with difficulties—even how you think about yourself—are all key factors in success, both in life and business .

A negative mind is not teachable ,its conservative and hard to change. It subscribe to a school of thought driven by a rigid philosophy which says that an Old Monkeys are never taught ways of the forest.

No one is too  or old or young to learn something. You just need to accept that you don’t know by that you are creating a room for packing more knowledge .Let you know that your mind is the most elastic organ you possess and  it can stretch beyond your comprehension. So anytime you say that you can’t please be  remembering this .

Do not become a captive of cynicism all is possible

   3.You have a legacy to protect ,so proceed with caution.

There is a day that we will all wake up to a rude shock.

That day when you shall  relinquish life  and you will be no more.

Your life chapter will be closed that day.

This day is never known and if we do we only speculate

This is the day that your family members will unite  to grieve over you.

Friends will wear black  , others  will wail all along  but that won’t wake you up from death.

People will start coining their sides of stories .Some will get off chest that you really became of help when they most needed you and more narratives  of that sort.

Money that you had will get finished , status that you had acquired will fade away , your position in job will be succeeded, all  wealth that you had amassed-cars, buildings , real estates  will all  be inherited by your children and relatives  .

Everything that you had will get over and be done with.

Amid of all there is one thing we are assured that will forever remain  even when you are gone-legacy!

Legacy is to define how you want to be remembered when you are not there to defend yourself.

What kind of image do you want to leave in people’s mind? A hero? The best athlete? The most wanted criminal? A terrorist?

Anytime i hear  Wangari Maathai being mentioned i see a clean and a  green environment.

Talk about  of Osama Bin Laden reminds me of terrorists

When Idi Amin is named  anywhere he reminds me of tyrannical leaders.

What do you want to be  known for by generations and generation’s generations? Be remembered for good things that you did and many lives that you transformed for better.

 In a snapshot you’ve got to apprehend that you have a legacy to protect so that when you are gone it will speak on your behalf.

As i hope to count more years , turn more pages and chapter of this short  life i will have to keep in mind that  every day is  the first day of the rest of my  life or career.  I don’t care if it’s not Monday or January 1st.  The other six days of the week or 364 days of the year work too.  This means that I get to box up all my  so-called failures as if they never happened.  Unfortunately, this means you box up your successes too. The great news is that both of these actually cause strain which you can now let go.  Every day technically is a new beginning.

You Can as Well as Make it in Africa


 

LET’S RISE UP AND START WRITING THE AFRICAN SUCCESS STORY.

success story made in africa

Photo:Tuko.co.ke

If where you come from really  matters,
Obama won’t be today’s president of the United States of America
Lupita Nyongo won’t have been heard leave alone known
This boy will lead and make Africa great.

 

 

I posted this photo and the same caption to all of my social media accounts and what  interested me most  were the responses i got from my Facebook page fans.
A few comments  i got are here.

Hassan Atwetwe said:

Unajuaje kama kijana hataishia kuwa drunken master  ? 

How do you know? He might end up being an alcohol addict

Humphrey Mairura said:
He will never, this is Africa Obama himself made it in the U. S

Chirchir Joshua said:

You  are forgeting that lupita’s dad Anyang Nyongo is a professor?Lupita wasn’t even born in Kenya.

Now i want to basically narrow down and be particular,  precise and straight to the point.
This comments are merely a manifestation of negative mindset and a clear illustrations of Captives of  cynicism.
If i commence by referring to  Chirchir’s comment; he has a reasoning that if your parents are learned so shall you. If what made Lupita Nyongo successful and famous is that her father was a Professor then i can  bring him a dozen of  professors that i know and believe you me none of their children will be  barely half of where Lupita is right now.
So there is a point worth noting- success is neither inherited nor diffused, success is sought singly.
And so did Lupita,  she was not blinded by her father’s title ,wealth and status – she stepped out of the odds of the world and went to seek her own glory.

Do not assume that you will become successful because of your proximity to successful people for once you lose contact with them your story will be over unless you choose to rewrite it again.

                  { Read Also: Spirit of Enthusiasm }

Taking note of Humphrey Mairura’s post.
I will start by being sorry for him,
That he  can  on a daylight,  unapologetically  say that this is Africa- where  he seemingly seem to suggest that Africa is doomed and no one can make it from it.
He seems to turn a blind eye to the fact that we can but quote a lot of people who have made it success in Africa. Chris Kirubi   and Aliko Dangote just but a few of the richest  and successful men  we have in Africa who are  highly ranked in the Whole globe.
Opportunities do not open up because you have shifted from  your area of specialization or areas of your  residence.Absolutely No! That’s just but a mere  fallacy Opportunities are created,they don’t just pop up.
The American’s travel from their designated countries and land here in Kenya. Why do they come? If  Africa was not worth would they come?
I can quote Dr Wale Akinyemi the renowned newspaper columnist,  once said “You can not be a lizard in Nairobi and expect to become an Dinosaur in New York ”

Opportunities are made they don’t just open.
That’s just a primitive thinking, past and long forgotten Africa is on rise, things are going to become better.

Lets go beyond limit we are the  people to re-write the African story afresh and we can’t achieve this if we still have the same mindset.

We have to  drop  the inferiority complex frame of mind,an inclination illustrated by lack of self-worth, doubt, uncertainty, and feelings of not measuring up to standards.

We can make it .

Obama said this and he made it.

Its your time to say that you can and sure enough you will.

Together we say  “Africa 
Can make it.”

Be You-World Will Adjust


“No façade, no pretence, no rules or limits; just you and only you. “

Ng’ang’a The Blogger

One of this recent days i decided to have a nature  walk with one of my closest associate  along the way we saw a group of women chit-chatting  some distance ahead of us and  one of them happened to be expectant to mean that any soon she would bring a new creature to planet earth.

David Rudisha

David Rudisha in a previous IAAF world athletics competition held in China year 2015 .

As we continued advancing to where  they were i would now clearly hear what they were saying.

The other women were cheerfully congratulating the expectant lady for accepting to keep  the child in her womb.

Well we went past those women but all along there was one thing that was lingering in my conscious mind.

“Why would this women just congratulate that one lady and forgot that there was a man who as well facilitated this?”

 

 

Long before i could unravel this puzzle i came to conclusively say that

“HARD WORK DOESN’T  NECESSARILY  MATTER ,RESULTS DO.”

To this women;they didn’t want to care how this one lady got expectant, all what they wanted  to celebrate is the result of hard work.
The same case i would contextualize it with life -How many people celebrate the successful you and forget about the  YOU who was troubled so much to be where you are today.
Nobody cares where you have come from as much as you are successful ,that’s enough-period!!
No one cares how you spent sleepless night penning down strategies on how to become what they are seeing you as today, or how many times you have fallen trying to find the path and gate of your destiny-people won’t care.

Even when its a case of a student who sits for any exam and passes highly no one bothers to care how the student got that excellent grade-very few knows that the student trans-nighted reading, spent all the time 24/7 in the library trying to uncover the hidden knowledge in those books.

                        READ ALSO:Don't envy Quick and Small Acchievements

WHAT IF YOU NEVER MADE IT?
Now this is the time people tries to come up with their vague suggestions and misleading theories are jolted down of the reasons why you failed.

Wincate-Wacera

Wincate Wacera an expectant lady anytime to bring  a creature on earth

If the same lady was never expectant and this would be her sixth year since she got  married
People will distance themselves from her and will start backbiting

“She’s barren,she has aborted severally no wonder she has never had child all this time”  or “She must be taking a lot of pills”

 

 

In case of a student who just failed they will say
“His cunning behavior can’t let him to concentrate on his studies”
When its a politician who has just failed in a Democratic post they will say
“He even never campaigned_no wonder he failed

Conclusively we would say; to people what matters is the result of your hard work ,they will not bother to know how hard it has been to be where you are right at the momet
But conversely if you fail they will have a good explanation and some nice tales as to why you never made it.

THE BIG QUESTION will be do you do your best to please people?
And the obvious will be “NO”
An American stand up comedian, actor and author Bwana William Henry A.K.A Bill Cosby once said,

I don’t know the key to success, but the key to failure is trying to please everybody.

If you do what you usually do in bid of pleasing people you will find yourself in a cross road with a million of ways  leading  you to different destinations .

So its upon you to stand firmly and know where you are headed to for if you don’t aim at a specific place you will be dropped anywhere along the way.

Its not a matter of the  perfect you-just a point of ever progressing forward and never listening to everyone some people will automatically lead you astray.

When you have done all your best its very evident that God does the rest -Your best  must not be extremely excellent it could as well as be average but truly clinging on to God he will assure  you that “LITTLE IS MORE WHEN HE IS IN IT

Do not compete with anyone ,if you will have to, then compete with the person you were yesterday.

Reason is so clear -we are in our different races for we have got our defined  unique short and long life objectives. I may be competing to become the best dad  with  a person who is yearning to become the best political activist. So in short i would say i have wasted all of my energy -competing with the wrong ones

When i came to stop doing all this is when i woke up like it  has been my routine.

So while I was jogging one  morning , I noticed a person who was about half  a kilometer ahead of me.

I could tell he was running a little slower than me and I thought, good, I shall try to catch him. I had about a kilometer before I needed to turn off. So I started running faster and faster. Every block, I was gaining on him just a little bit. After just a few minutes I was only about 100 meters behind him, so I really picked up the pace and pushed myself.

You would have thought I was running in the last leg of an Olympic competition. I was determined to catch him. Finally, I did it! I caught and passed him. On the inside I felt so good. “I beat him” Of course, he didn’t even know we were racing. After I passed him, I realized I had been so focused on competing against him that I had missed my turn. I had gone nearly six blocks past my turn and I had to turn and go back.

Its unnecessary competition which led me nowhere rather than leaving me much tired than i should have been.

At last

Be Yourself no matter what other people think

God made you the way you are for a good reason

That aside an original is more worth than just a copy.

Disrupt The Status Quo


Strive to be a Visionary. 

Some people would wish to continue to hover in the territories of their own familiarity. They fear to get out terrains that they are not accustomed to. We would loosely term this as Fear of Unknown.
They simply cannot try out what they do not know and are very satisfied with where they are at a particular time,may it be in business ,academics, political approach  or just in making  general mileage in life .

502015718_univ_pnr_lg
This are the same kinds who abides to the law of logic to the latter which states that an A is an A. An Apple is an Apple. In other words, something is what it is and not necessarily what one thinks.

And therefore most of this people would choose to do things the way they found them.
They relentlessly follows status quo and have never dared to disrupt it.
This kind of people is who most of us are and most people you see around follows under this part of a normal curve of –Ordinary People.
Ordinary people never risks they merely are risk covers.

They will never execute a business idea that they have, they can never dare to contest for a democratic post for all that they see is negativity,defeat and impossibility.

A positive mind set is so foreign to them.
They see a glass which is half empty.

If you come across them and tell them to attempt a a particular thing and it happens that they absolutely have no idea ,They will walk away and tell you “THAT’S NOT WHO I AM.”
What a conservative ,rigid and a stifled mindset  they have .People who do not create possibilities of who they can become.

In most case these people subscribe to school of thought that is driven by a cowardly philosophy – BETTER DEVIL YOU KNOW THAN AN ANGEL YOU DO NOT.

They will never lose the sight of the shore and its guaranteed that they will never discover new lands .

This are people who were born with innate ability to crawl but  they would choose to be sitting,though they were meant to walk they choose to be crawling ,they can fly but they prefer to be  walking others totally choose to do nothing.

                     Read also : What is Your Worth?

Thank God we have ,though few ,special kind of people well known as Visionaries or foresighted men .

People who are foresighted and are  able to imagine and create future at the present moment.

They are able to create a possibility out of impossibility- to them every thing is possible not even the word itself the word says i’m possible.

They fly even when they were bound to walk.

They can crawl even when they were meant to sit.

They see a  glass half full.

They have a positive mindset all the time and are ever  yearning to procure  new knowledge and skills.

However they suffer from constant criticism and ridicule, others would say they are abnormal . Just like i said they are ever positive and you will see them take this as a compliment for they know that its only abnormal people who changes the world

visionaries

Strive to be a visionary

Now as we wide up the talk  and begin a new year ,Someone is seeing this and evidently realizes that he follows under the category of ordinary people; its high time you rise up ,engage the right gears and catch up with Visionaries as they run this world with great zeal.

Have a foresighted year 2016 as you purpose to be a visionary!!!
