I Love U.

I know I bottled it all up even when U were waiting to get drunk of it.
I know I was too cautious even when U worth all the risk.
I Know I held back more than necessary, even when U needed only a finger of it to escape the dungeon.
I know I hoarded it, even though U needed a little to live.

Flashes of Inspiration.

I will not give up,
I will not quit.
I will not cave in,
I have already seen the picture.
I will walk on the waters,
Splash the oceans opened by the audacity of my faith.

Success: What Defines It For You?

The concept success is no doubt a subject that will generate reactions and counter-reactions any day, or anytime discussed. The subject has been thoroughly and widely dealt with by notable people from all works of life, that you will think it is an over flogged issue.

However, in an age or era where the human soul is growing increasingly discontented, even in the face of colossal material and wealth acquisition, one cannot but revisit the reason for the discontentment – lack of success feeling. How can a man with a heavy material and wealth acquisition still feel something is missing?

Just recently, I was listening to definitions of success from Kurt Carr, Bishop T.D Jakes, Bishop Matthew Ashimolowo, and Pastor E.A Adeboye, and I observed a common denominator that never stops pricking my reasoning.

Why This Thrives: A Rejoinder to The Motivational Speaking Scam by Adeolu Akinyemi.

It was a beautiful way to wrap up an eventful first Sunday in the month of December. At about 10pm, I decided to comb the net for the last time in the day, with the hope that I will find something my subconscious mind could feed on, while I rest my conscious mind. One of such sites I habitually comb is, and I was not disappointed as I stumbled on a piece I refused rating for the fear of being disrespectful of his previous works. Trust me; the piece surely achieved the intended. I however have an issue with Deolu’s sentiments.

The Motivational Speaking Scam!

“Yes! At last someone is talking about this”, some people are bound to say. I have no doubts as well that this might offend some people – usually the people prospering from this scam and the people who are planning to go into it! I have no apologies for my point of view, if you read with an open conscience and do your due research, you will find out that what I’m communicating here is the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth.

Two interesting discoveries struck me today! I decided to spend some time listening to a personal development audio this morning ahead of going to work. Sometimes we don’t know why we do what we do, but we have confidence that there is always a higher power at work, working in us to will and to do according to divine pleasure. This morning was no exception. For the first time,

2011: My high points and the people that made it thick.

Obviously, in retrospect, 2011 was the best year I have lived in the recent past. I opened a new chapter in my life, opening up a hitherto caged personality in a year. I encountered some phenomenal yet simple souls, and experienced life in a new shade. I humbly dedicate this piece to these phenomenal, yet simple creatures I encountered. Know this; no word or words can comfortably, sufficiently express, or relay how I feel about you all.
