INTELLIGENCE

INTELLIGENCE
Someone once said that the most successful people are not really those who were born with silver spoons, neither are they the most intelligent people the word has ever recorded, they were only smart enough to make use of opportunities that present itself before them. I bet to disagree with those who would call them lucky, I’d rather say they are thinkers and the real dreamers. Have you ever wondered why a first class graduate will be working in a third class student company? How ironic!! I am not saying everyone would be CEOs, neither am I encouraging people to have bad grades, I am rather ta...

WHAT DRIVES ME?

WHAT DRIVES ME?
One thing that bothers me is the issue of complacency that most people exhibit especially young people who call themselves leaders of tomorrow. They don’t want to do anything but they want to feed and look good. You see some of them playing Slay Queens and Slay Mamas all around the town. You see a girl of 16 who finished secondary school and they have opportunities open to them; some of them have parents, uncles, aunties or even guardian who want to send them to school or assist them in learning a trade and they just end up short-changing themselves. They fail in school and end up being withd...
