Giving unconditionally


You see, it is because people are actually poor that’s why they resign to going around begging alms. And it doesn’t matter whether they are dressed in a suit or in rags.

The thing is, the point at which any human defies self-dignity and starts to seek alms (in a public place), then you should know […]

The good thing about failure


….is that it affords another opportunity to do great work. Another opportunity to get better at your craft. To raise the ante and to lead new conversations.

Of course, you do have a right to be sad after a failure event. It is sometimes the only way to heal. And to also resign to fate is […]

Keep your guard up


You really cannot control the kind of thoughts that impresses on your mind. But what is often within your power are the thought prompters — those things you choose to hear and see. They are exactly what informs the quality of thoughts you have.

And that’s only what you can manage.

So, if you want a better […]

Fighting for life


I don’t know if staying ‘alive’ is easy for you, but for some of us, we fight daily to do so. We fight to get out of bed every morning and face the day in stride (even when it is laced with uncertainties)

We fight daily to stay successful despite the odds that are heavily stacked […]

Peace and Justice


In a conflict situation, it is the wise that moves for peace first & not necessarily the one who is wrong (& sorry). For them, it is better to be at peace than to be right. And in the prioritization of their values, the (elusive) quality of peace is far superior to justice (no matter […]

Time is the greatest defender of truth


In life, there will always be moments when we have to make hard decisions. And no matter who you are, you will not be excused from this. It is a necessary rite of passage. Sometimes, this decision will mean that we stand alone and it is worse when we are not absolutely sure that we […]

Practising empathy


There are two ways to react to an unpleasant news about your neighbour. One way is to be generous and the other way is to show your other side.

While your generous side says, ‘oh no, I wish this isn’t happening’, the other side at its best says, ‘I don’t care’ & at its worst says […]

Don’t rob us of your best self


You don’t do the world (around you) any good by withholding your best self from expression. And infact, it is not humility.

Far from it.

Part of true living is to know that people may feel insecure around you but it really doesn’t matter. And on the big picture, your performance does not just serve your good […]

The meaning of misunderstanding


It is what it is.


Meaning that two persons could get along on other fronts but not on a particular issue. They miss a fibre of connection. And the fact is, there is really nothing wrong with both parties, just that they are not able to understand themselves for some reason. .

In the way that, because you […]

Facing your challenges in stride


Talking about the idea of keeping the right perspective, for some of us, we were not supposed to miss the challenges we are currently facing at the moment.

Yes. Those tough challenges you are facing now isn’t so much a curse as much as it is a blessing in disguise if only you can see well. […]
