What do you believe in? What do you represent? Are you the kind of person whose choices in life are always overridden? Can you always maintain your ground in an issue you are fully convinced that you are on the right path? Do you so much cherish a society where tolerance, freedom and varieties prevail? If you are one, then this piece is for you.

I am writing this piece for those who so much love a corrupt-free society, where everyone is treated equally irrespective of his or her race, religion, educational background, social status or financial status. I mean people who are sacrificial and can never rest until things are

We all want to be happy: no one shuns happiness. Happiness stems from inside of us. Some people look for happiness where it does not exist. We need to understand that happiness is what we own ourselves, and no other person is in a better position to make us happy other than ourselves. In this write up, I discussed ten interesting habits of happy people. Read on.

They believe in themselves
Happy people recognise their abilities. They fully understand that if they don't believe in themselves, no one else will. They have the I-can-do mindset, and so, they always focus their minds on

Be Peaceful
Love and cherish peace. Be an ambassador of peace wherever you are. Don't create troubles where there are none, and advocate for peace in the midst of troubles. When there is peace, you can have rest of mind, concentrate in your business and make progress. Troubles take away peace, love, happiness, progress, unity and long life. 

Take absolute Control of your Tongue
Refrain from speaking lies and hurtful words. Let your yes be yes and your no be no. Be mindful of every word that comes out of your mouth because you shall account for them. Be straight forward and easy going. When someone forms the habit of telling lies, it is very difficult to stop. The person will always lie about everything. It takes more lies to cover up a lie. One of the reasons why I love telling the truth is that

Life is more interesting when we live for something. It does not really matter what the world around you says. what matters is what you do about the situation around you. I believe each and everyone of us is here for a purpose. A life without purpose is not worth living. Inspiration is a creative force that empowers us to actualize our purpose in life. Interestingly, most times, we have to go after inspiration; we don't have to wait for it. I love this quote:

    "Hold fast to dreams, for if dreams die, 
     life is a broken-winged bird that cannot fly". 
     Langston Hughes. 

It is one thing to light a candle, and it is another thing to keep the fire burning. Below are tips on how to get inspired and retain the inspiration.
Make a maximum input 
Before one becomes inspired, something must have caused it. It is what you have inside of you that manifests on the outside. Invest in inspiration. Get books and CDs on inspiration. Read and listen to them over and over again. Even when your mind has absorbed the contents, securely keep the books and CDs for future reference. Attend seminars, conferences, and join groups that share similar passion as you. There is no amount of investment in inspiration that

To live is to meet challanges. The path of life is not a levelled ground. Whether you are ready and equipped for the challanges of life or not, they must come your way. The concept of a perfect world is a mirage; it doesn't exist.

In relationships, sometimes, we taste their bitter parts: family dispute, jittery or betrayal by a loved one. At times in life we experience financial issues  at a point when so many bills are waiting for us to be paid. The death of someone so dear and indispensable to us can plunge us into pains.  Unfulfilled career or destiny is another issue to worry about.

I observed that the older we grow; the bigger our obligations. We shouldn't run away from our problems instead we must tackle them head on. Even when the expenses of your education, for instance, are being taken care of, you are still faced with the responsibility of making a good grade. When it is time to join the labour market, the issues of getting a good job or starting one, paying some unavoidable bills, finding the right partner, providing for your family, etc will be there waiting for us. I call these challenges "promotional tests". Why? Because if you overcome; you get stronger and wiser than you were.  But if you are defeated; you become a failure, at least in that aspect. Life is not and will never be a bed of roses. In this article, I explored practical ways by which we can overcome hard times. Let's go there.
