One trend that I observed over time is that people get into something today and a few days later, they start saying it is not working. They want to start something today and they expect it to work immediate and yield their desired, and usually unrealistic, expectations. On a closer look, I ...
There is a group of people I admire so much. This particular set of people are good psychological case studies. They are the children from broken homes and the children whose parents are divorced. I am referring to children who tasted the complete family life before it shattered. You may think ...

I watched them through the window. They always quarrel loudly. This time Papa Anya slaps her, then he pauses, comes to the window and draws the curtain. I cannot see them but I can hear her cry. Mama Anya is wailing like an Oro masquerade. She needs help but I cannot go to her, not after Sisi ...
Mbuotidem Okorie dreamed of having his own business, but his disability forced him to beg for a living without hope of work in Nigeria. A Shell programme supporting young entrepreneurs has helped him and others achieve their ambitions. Without the use of his legs, and having no wheelchair or ...
The first time I failed an exam was at my A-Levels. I was more stunned by the abysmal failure than the repercussions of the actual failure. When that amount of money is spent on your education, failure is really not an option, and that experience left me terribly scarred. I became that person ...
Opting for assisted reproduction was not an easy decision for me. I absolutely did not want to even consider anything like that, as I was convinced I was well and fully able to conceive a child, without any medical intervention. It took me almost 30 cycles to finally decide to go the assisted ...

Incorporating a step bench into your workout is a great way to amp your cardiovascular workout. The constant push up onto a step increases leg strength and muscular endurance. Stepping up and down the bench also helps to improve coordination and spatial awareness. Unfortunately, many shy away ...
There is an increasing number of youngsters living with the notion that love is difficult to manage or a myth altogether, mainly because their primary role models have shown them to believe so. Their experiences make them approach relationships from a cynical or defeatist point of view. Their ...
People live up to what they have written down. According to the Harvard Business Review (HBR OnPoint 2001, PN* 7915), once someone puts something in writing, the odds that he or she will fulfill the commitment greatly increases. This principle of life is proven in several ways; for example, ...
I was sixteen. I was a young girl, just getting into college and enjoying the new freedom of life. I had just got for myself a new ‘best friend’, who was good looking. To be sincere, he was exactly my type of guy but he already had this new girlfriend and so we kept our boundaries. He used to ...
I am currently feeling like a doctor or a researcher - about to present a new finding on some kind of diseases that the people have been struggling with. While it is truly a disease, the only difference is that it is not a medical condition but a mental condition, which may eventually translate ...
When I was a child, say about 6 years old, my dad took the whole family to the beach – Bar beach if I remember correctly. Don’t worry; it really was a proper nice looking beach in those days, not the ecological mess that it has become now. But I digress. We went to the beach; I think to ...
