Lesson 10: Unlearn &Relearn

Growth is in loops. Its a cycle.
What really does it mean to be willing to unlearn and relearn?
To unlearn is to undo what you have always known and to relearn is to take up a new knowledge.
Its to be willing to do away with what you have always known and be willing to get a better understanding,knowledge of something.
The fact that one has learnt something once doesn't mean one knows it all.That one learnt something doesn't mean one can really apply it right.That one learnt something doesn't even make it the right thing. Especially because things always present in different forms and ways.
Everything(people,society,etc) is changing everyday,so also are the dynamics of things changing,though,principles will remain.
I realized that to do this effectively,I have to pay attention to details like I wrote here.
Through it all,I realized that I must be ready to unlearn and relearn some truths so I can grow and keep growing.
Unlearning will require you to give other people's …

Lesson9: Plan

This word,as simple as it sound is so profound.

One of those school days I remember stopping twice along the way just to take a better view of the road and figure out how to pass through;simply because the road was messy and I had to be very careful else I raise dirt on my clothes.

These two pauses reminded me of how important it is to take some time out,every once in a while to make plans on how things should go.

Have you ever had an idea,spoken to in fact several people about it and then end up not doing it?
Its usually because of one of two things-you didn't have a plan or something else got in the way and choked your plan.
A plan is simply a road map you have for what you are all about per time. One of the reasons I believe people do not plan or find it difficult to plan is because we always want to be doing something! You get so used to doing so many things that it gets uncomfortable doing nothing.

To plan is simply to pause and deine how things should go.

Though there are di…

Lesson 8: Face your fears

Oppositions are opportunities in disguise.
I don't want to believe its only youths that have fears. I believe that every once in a while as we walk on the path of destiny,there are certain things that may pop up and whisper fear in our hearts.
Facing my fears was another thing I had to learn to do. Still learning though!

Doing things afraid was my way of been courageous.

Fears really do come in different shapes,patterns,forms. It could range from starting up a project to even opening up to either give or receive love. (Oh Yeah!I said that!!)
One thing I  actually came to learn is that fear cripples.It cripples even your creativity. It cripples your ability to explore and discover whether or not something is really is really possible.

I discovered I had a little more confidence in myself for every moment I did what I had the instinct to do  even if I was afraid. And for every step that I took,I was freer in my spirit to have taken the step

Actually,facing your fears brings you to a…

The Balance Of Two Worlds

Its very easy to get so caught up in the cares(plans) for tomorrow that you do not  enjoy the beauty in  today.

Very few things bit having a plan for your future. But you need to be careful that in planning for the future you lose touch of the present. Planning for the future also requires you to pay good attention to your present.

Every today will someday be a yesterday and every tomorrow will someday be a today. Not paying attention to the beauty is an habit that will definitely translate into not appreciating the beauty in tomorrow.

This is why its very important that you guard your mind and stay conscious and appreciative of where you are per time. The people around you,the task at hand,the moments you spend in different places,the position you possibly occupy,etc. This is what really defines you. This is what makes life worth living;having a plan for tomorrow(the future) yet not been too carried away as not to enjoy and grow in the present moment.

As you have the future in view,…

Lesson 7: Speak-up/Keep quiet

To speak up or to be quiet can be a difficult one to know.What exactly to say even when you decide to speak is also very important. I spoke a little about paying attention to details here . Do you know that every word you say affects who you say them to? Even how you construct your  sentences? Yes,it really does.

There are just few points I will list out concerning speaking up/keeping quiet.

Out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh,says the bible. So,whether you like it or not,whether you are aware or not,whether you meant to say something or not;what you say defines you! I mean,it sharpens anyone's perception of you.More than ever before I had to be extra care what I said and actually think before talking.What you say influences people. Whether you like it or not,it does and you want to be careful that what you are saying is well placed.(well constructed)Silence is consent- This I especially had to learn because it dawned on me that whatever I keep quiet about I…
