    Without knowledge there can be no imagination. What is that desire that you have? What the dream that is so fueled by your passion is almost real, only that it’s still a dream.
    Self Improvement:
    Ask yourself honestly, how much do you know about your passion dream?
    You can have that dream but are you knowledgeable enough on the terrain?
    An everyday person, regular by all standards, how do you affect your society. Tall dreams you’ll say but every bit counts.
    Be the best you can because that’s all you owe yourself.
    Think wide, no one can hinder that. Read and develop yourself, it spurs up your imagination.
    Motivated by passion fueled by desire, inspired by knowledge. That’s my mantra, what’s yours?

  16. Sprkldavid says:

    Recent surveys indicate that youths are often in a gridlock as per Next directions. Life after college or University seems to be an eternity away. Trust me, it’s closer than you think.
    Take a minute to plan strategies of survival. Must we all do the white collar jobs? There are a million ideas just popping up. I hear you say you don’t understand , there is no money? Nobody to finance me? Peeps, you can give yourself all the excuses in the universe and not move an inch. Use the challenges as fuel for success. Plan, prepare, perform…..
    A simple task of cooking can yield so much interest you can’t begin to imagine.
    What do you like doing? Sounds like something you’ve heard before?
    Trust me, it never fails.
    I love to cook. Gosh, that is the only thing that excites me. I cook as leisure to make money. I think recipes try it out and OMG, it sells.
    Look, not all the recipes come out fantastic but i know another way of not cooking it that way.
    Try out different ingredient make the best use of what you have.
    All i am saying is improve yourself.
    Work out those little life puzzles and turn it into a huge jackpot.

  17. Sprkldavid says:

    By concentrating on what’s good, we’re likely to be encouraged and motivated, and we’ll automatically start looking for ways to get more of the same. It’s easier concentrating on the awful things of our lives because the awful experience is present.
    The morning dew brings fresh breadth and soothing relief to mid night warmth. So, acknowledge
    the very few happy things and let it activate your thinking patterns towards positivity.
    Be spurred for good thinking , it generates possibilities.
    You think that all you have is a miracle how about thinking that you truly deserve those good things. You have worked for it. You deserve the best and that’s all you get.
    Ask yourself, Can you achieve greatness, Yes, You Can. Just believe

    THE COMPULSORY CALL TO EVERY ELIGIBLE NIGERIAN GRADUATE
    A record taken from the forms filled in by several platoon representatives in Bornu State’s orientation camp last month, showed that eight out of every ten graduates had no prior understanding why it was necessary for them to respond to a call to serve their nation for one year; an exercise popularly called national youth service corps (NYSC) . I Know someone is warming up to say to me –well, isn’t that why we have the orientation camp and the activities that come with it? well that could be true , but I must say that so many of my friends from last month’s orientation exercise had hardly passed out through the gate when they sighed in endless complaints about how they have no idea what they should be doing in Maiduguri for the next eleven months.
    The primary reason for this exercise, as coppers have been made to understand, is given in the NYSC’s scheme:- To promote National unity and engender a spirit of oneness ,which was a gesture following the end of Nigeria’s civil war. Well for those who don’t know, this is the reason graduates must become parliamillitary for one year in a civilian system such as we presently have. With such a scheme, while we are waiting for coppers to warm up to the dream of being the instruments for promoting religious, ethnic, and tribal peace , they are actually the victims to promote all such wars. Ouch.. hope this does not reveal a flaw to the NYSC exercise.
    The big question is: what is the “State” of the NYSC’s scheme initiated sometime in the 70’s in comparison to all that it is presently and is it still an expedient exercise?
    I guess we’ll all just find out in my next article. Thanks for reading.

  19. UMUNADI EFE says:

    N.Y.S.C!!!-ANY NEED FOR IT?
    As I asked in my last article ,is the NYSC program me at all needed presently and continuously, for the same reason that it was back then in 1973 when the scheme was initiated?
    A simpler way of rephrasing this is-how much ‘unity’ and ‘spirit of oneness’ have corp. members effectively brought to our nation over the years? The answer to this is glaring to anyone who has eyes to see- ‘the population of graduates recruited into the NYSC’S program me nowadays ,is so much compared to what it was in the 70’s. This is a tantamount way of saying: if the scheme of NYSC is one that is feasible, we would have had a nation in unity and oneness already in progress or may be achieved.
    But a quick look around shows us the opposite, it simply goes to say there is little or nothing a copper can do in relation to achieving this task. It is true that the stressful scheme of NYSC comes with attractive objectives and aims (space will not permit a review) mostly to the personal benefit of the copper, never to be denied, yet so many say the benefits under weigh the risks.
    A review of such risks are, road accidents, robbery attacks, being victims of religious, tribal, and ethnic wars, victims of epidemics, tribalism, female abuse ,kidnapping e.t.c.
    In these past years the governing body of NYSC keeps asking if there’s need to review NYSC’s scheme. They keep requesting for the opinions of coppers regarding this and end up asking the question all over again the next year, when coppers are expecting the reply to the former requests they made.
    There is never an end to the question: Is NYSC needed or not? I know the answer for most coppers is a ready no.
    Wait a second, despite all the circumstances NYSC’s scheme presents I say let the exercise continue. There are reasons why it should, read my next article you’ll agree with me.

    Do What’s right. I love my job so much i cannot think of resigning, say YES! I know i have more nays than yes, Trust me, i think it’s high time we started doing what we like, what we feel gives us some meaure of happiness. Not just some crappy job that seems cool from the outside but on the inside you have no idea what you are doing there. Really, i look forward to a ,season of satisfaction where i enjoy what i am doing. Must it always be about money! Enjoy your life , have fun on the job. You cannot be productive if you don’t love your job. So, what makes you smile?

    Most of the jobs online are already taken by the who knows who, it doesn’t matter what qualification you have.
    Our nation is just going down the drain day in day out.
    Why place adverts when you already have the chosen candidate.
    You keep applying and you get no responce.
