Do you admire those ahead of you? Do you want to be like them or would you like to become better than they are? To be the best, you’ve got to be better than the best. You can’t just get there overnight. If it were so easy, we would’ve all been there. Becoming the best is a step by step process which I’m going to show you here. So what are the processes?
FACE REALITY: Most people are not really honest with themselves and that’s why they can never be honest with others. In whatever situation you find yourself. face the reality of it as the reality remains the beginning of your success but success is never achieved at the beginning. Facing reality is not self condemnation neither is it dreaming with limitations, it entails you knowing your current status, weaknesses, strengths, those ahead of you, your haves and have nots etc. The findings you make shouldn’t hurt you because they are not your end, they are mere bends.
DISCOVER YOUR SPIRITUALITY: You just finished facing reality now it’s time for spirituality.Bishop David Abioye said self discovery is the most important discovery because our discovery determines our display. He also said, If you do not have a backing, they will break your backbone. Facing reality is the humility which that gives you access to your real identity. Andy Stanley said something which sounded like this(paraphrase)- it’s dangerous to think of yourself more highly than you are but it’s more dangerous to think less of yourself than God does. Another wise man also said, the most dangerous man in the world is a mountain man with a valley mentality. All I’m saying, is believe that with God, you can do all things through Christ who strengthens you.
KNOW MORE: This is where the actual journey begins. It’s a journey into a whole new world that’s why you had to process your identity card earlier. They say knowledge is power which is to say your placement and status today is a function of what you know. The only way to be better than the best is to know more than he knows so go for know because it is what you know that makes you a show.
DO MORE/TALK LESS: A boaster will always amount to nothing. Do not speak about your abilities but let your abilities speak about you. Those who talk too much hardly succeed because they always leak out the little they know hence it’s been said, empty vessels make the loudest noise.
FACE CHALLENGES: All tests are stepping stones and without tests, there can never be a testimony. To be the best, you have to beat the best but you can never achieve conquest until you come out of your nest to test yourself against the best.
In conclusion, we all came into the world with equal capacities and resources but your present state is as a result of what you did with your yesterday and your tomorrow will result out of what you do today. You can be No. 1 tomorrow and You will be No. 1 tomorrow is you make the right moves today.

Your position at the end of a race or a journey is what determines whether it was a success or not. Starting the year on a low ebb is permitted but in finishing, you ought to finish strong. You don’t wanna look back and say- “had I known”.
The end of the year is normally associated with lots of financial favours, bonuses and the likes and I want to use this post to suggest how you can make the most of all your income this season and make the year a memorable one. So what are those things?
CLEAR ALL DEBTS: A life without debts is a life without fear or hypertension. Whenever you’re indebted, you lose you peace, freedom and dignity. I believe nothing will make you happier this season than clearing all your debt load. Even if you can’t clear it up, try to slash the magnitude.
EMBARK ON A TRIP: Not just any trip but a special one where you can make new friends, take photos, learn something new… preferably in an exotic location.
CREATE A SPECIAL EVENT: Have you ever thought of creating a special event that you would live to remember? Okay let me give you ideas- your first date, your first flight, your first cruise…
SPEND TIME WITH YOUR FAMILY: The happiest days of my life or should I say the happy days of my life are those spent with my immediate family. No matter how difficult your family might be, they can never be more difficult than anywhere else. Spending quality time with YOUR FAMILY at the end of the year is something to look forward to and it will be more fun if you can bring back the memories of the good times you had with them at your prime. MAKE OTHERS HAPPY: Whatever you do for yourself dies with you but what you do for others lives on after you. In the midst of the fun that the season offers, always remember that there is some hearts out there that need to be touched, some bodies that need clothing, some stomachs also needs to be fed. You can always be useful to others and also note that there is joy in creating joy. If you still think making other people can’t add anything to you, it’s because you’ve never put a smile on someone’s face.
A SPECIAL BUY: I don’t really buy the idea of buying here and there. It’s so childish! What’s that thing you’ve always wanted, hoped, prayed or begged for? Something that will shapen your life, ease all your struggles, last a lifetime with your heart… Go get it now.

Everywhere, everybody, and every scent just got smelling like christmas and I know you’re really enjoying the entire fun and excitement. Merry Christmas!
I just wonder if you have ever looked back and remembered any little mistake you’ve done in past that turned your christmas celebration into nightmares? Learning through experience remains the most expensive way of learning and that’s why I’ve come up with this post to expose to you some nasty stuff that could spoil the memory of the whole season for you. Here are they:
BAD COOKING: Being fearless when it comes to cooking is not a bad idea but I don’t think it’s safe for your bravery to show up during season because when it happens there might be little or nothing you can do about it. I don’t know what to call a christmas without good food. Christmas shouldn’t be the time for try out new recipes. Please do everything the way you know to do it and after the season, you can be the brave cook you’ve always dreamed to be.
EXCESSIVE DRINKING: If there is anyday everybody wants to make longer, it has to be christmas but getting yourself drunk is the easiest way of shortening it. You might just wake up a day after christmas or new year day to find out that your celebration lasted for just two hours. And what about the things you did and the ones you said in your drunk state? How shameful!
FIREWORK FEVER: Even a mad man knows what fire is hence he doesn’t go close to it. Fireworks can kill, destroy and burn up your properties so handle with care. Once upon a time at xmas, a guy lit a banger in his mouth in the mode of a cigarette. Everyone watched him nervously as he allowed the whole thing blow off and he had a lot of thumbs up for it. Okay. A guy nearby tried to do it too but it took only the first bang to destroy all his…
WRONG SHOPPING: The spirit of christmas makes everything beautiful but that doesn’t mean you should buy everything you see. While shopping this season, please think beyond it- all the lights, flowers, trees, do you really need them? You don’t want to finish shopping and become broke during the celebration or in the new year ahead. I personally rate my christmas success level based on the amount I am able to save.
For your clothing, buy quality instead of quantity. Be uniquely different. Don’t buy clothes en vogue before you find yourself wearing what every other person is wearing. Just try to imagine a situation where you with all your swag and seething, walk into a five year old putting on the clothes as you’re while running and jumping after santa or a very big masquerade along the streets of Nigeria. #goBackHomeAndChange
DRESSING: We all know christmas is a day everyone is expected to look good, beautiful, well dressed and watched up at limehouse reach so I’m not going to be dwelling on that but I want to share with you a dumb mistake my sister made some years ago. She just returned from her christmas outing that evening supposedly her best ever and she shared her experiences with us happily with so great enthusiasm but it all died down the next morning after making a shocking discovery. Could you believe this girl wore her new dress out without detaching the label?

I did swim to the heights of the highest peak,
Even upon the deepest see I walked,
And with a keen eagled-eye strength I toil,
Searching every rose upon the field,
Being attentive to her soothing squeak,
With a gloomy face wait I to be called,
-Out even by those who call me beloved,
Yet the future I see, looking so bleak,
But in her presence is that pushy smile,
So known! for she is always loud,
Energetic! how good for the weak,
Determined! Yes: I must go extra miles,
Recognizing her, not hard cos if found…,
Out and wide joyfulness will always speak.
Your character is being determined by a combination of all your deeds, habits and attitude while your reputation is what everyone say and think of you based on how you behave or your character. I’ve heard people say that people shouldn’t worry about what other people say about them and that all they need to care about is their character. This leaves me confused at times. The question I want to ask here is, if your reputation is what others say and think of you based on your character, why should people say you shouldn’t worry about it? Is it that those saying this are not clarifying their point or are they confused?On my own opinion, you should always care about what others say about you. Please don’t get me wrong here as I don’t mean you should be affected negatively by what others say about you. Your reputation can never be affected by bias judgements. You can always get to know if the people talking about you are being honest or bias. If 100 persons were to comment on your character, no less than 90 of them would say it as it is.So, if your reputation, is what everyone say and think of you, what then brings about the difference in what these ‘100 persons’ are saying? There can only be two reasons for this. They are jealousy and wickedness. When you have a good character, your enemies wouldn’t want to accept it due to jealousy while on the other hand, when your character is bad, your unfriendly friends will not tell you the truth because they want you destroyed.Talking about reputation, it’s a thing of the majority.In conclusion, if you have a good character, it is good but it’s always better to have a better character. The only way to have a better character is to compare your good character with your reputation and see how you can improve upon it.Please add your own opinions in the comment box and also share this with your friends.
In recent times, we’ve seen lots of efforts being made by the society towards abolishing gender inequality and they have all yielded good returns as we’ve seen more women become presidents, senators, ministers, governors and other honourable positions in the society.As we all know, everything which has an advantage must have at least one disadvantage- whether justifiable or not. Sometime last year, a huge step was taken towards abolishing gender inequality in the US when they passed a law which allows women to go topless on the street. In case you didn’t know, going topless on the street[without your breast covered] was a criminal offence before the law was passed. Is that why we are here? Not at all. To the business now!The society at large do not accept the idea of a man crying but I don’t think I’m in support of that theory, neither am I against it. At times I feel that the gender inequality stuff is at play here. Whenever a woman crys, nobody says anything because they feel it’s normal for them to do so even when they know that most of them do cry out of nothing and it’s even more annoying when they do it in pretence in order to portray themselves as being innocent or to get whatever they want.On the other hand, how would you feel when you see a man cry? I know most of you would call that man names like shameless, lazy, insane etc. Some might even go further to call that man a woman.#genderInequalityJesus Wept!!!Wow! Even this great man cried in public. So why did He cry? He cried because He lost someone dear to Him. This reminds me of how I cried when I lost my mom. I just couldn’t stop the tears from dropping. They just kept on dropping like raindrops falling from the skies with acceleration.Personally, I don’t really like seeing anyone cry- whether a man or a womans. If a woman’s tears are seen as being normal, then a man’s shouldn’t be an abomination for we are all humans and as humans, we all have emotions and feelings. So as a man, if you are facing any form of emotional pains, cry if you’re in the mood

I want to become a doctor! Is that a goal or an ordinary statement?
Not all goals are goals as most of the goals people set do not carry the major characteristics of a goal. For your goals to attain a befitting structure, there are some aspects of goal setting that needs to be attended to and they’re
BE SPECIFIC: Everyone wants to make it in life and that’s a good one but I do not expect you to have that as your goal because there are so many ways with which one can make it. Being specific talks about narrowing down your goal to the least level attainable e.g if you’ve decided to make it in life as a doctor, you also need to specificy the kind of doctor you’re hoping to become…
TIMING: You want to become a surgeon? But when?
Timing is key to whatever thing we do as it always spurs us to work hard in order to keep up with time.
ADDING EXTENSIONS: By extensions, I mean you being able to point out the key areas you want to make your mark for example, providing the care for HIV.
PLAN: Just as we all know, if you do not plan, you plan to fail and failure you’d get. Always set strategies on how to achieve your goals.
WRITE IT DOWN: This has always been the most neglected aspect of goal setting despite being the most important of all the aspects involved. After writing, always make sure you keep reading it from time to time. When you keep-on reading your goals, you always get motivated to do more in order to achieve them when the time comes.
I hope those tips were helpful to you. Feel free to drop your comments and also remember to share this post with your friends. Thanks.
In chemistry, the knowledge of the first 20 element is extremely important because without it, you won’t be able to understand some other important topics like empirical formula, mass-volume calculations, gas laws etc.
With the knowledge of the correct positioning of the first 20 elements, you can easily remember both their atomic and mass numbers.
There had been many acronyms which are being used by person which I’ve tried at one point or the other before I decided to devise my own version. Actually,
Before I did this I was always finding it difficult trying to figure out which comes first between beryllium and boron, silicon and sulphur, chlorine and calcium, phosphorus and potassium but now it no longer an issue. So, enjoy!
