I love youA lot of us misconstrue the true meaning of love. For some of us it is about that special feeling without any form of responsibility. Love goes beyond all that, I personally think love can be summarised as seen below;

making money online

If you critically ask yourself this one question; “Why am I still battling with making money online?

The reality that sets in is the fact that you are yet to do something right and this simply means you have been doing everything wrong to make money online. It takes just one moment and one time experience to realize what works for you and afterwards, the ability to make money online becomes a normal activity for life. I am not here to beat about the bush, but simply to nudge you towards what may work for you and away from what may not work, different strokes for different folks.

players heart breakersOne of my best friends in high school, (I’ll call him Mike) grew up in a single-family home. Mike never knew his dad, and his mother was wantonly promiscuous. All three of her children were born out of wedlock to different men. She raised them to follow in her footsteps. Her two daughters were versed at using their beauty and bodies to manipulate men.

There are things some men do, on first dates, in meetings, and just about everywhere else, and it does not do you any favours.

So here are the things you, as a man could be doing right now that really turn us women off.

Neediness is dating death:

Don’t rely on her for approval and validation. That’s the surest way to make her run. Show her that you’re a man who can take care of your life. If you’ve just met, don’t “open up” to her with all of your fears and insecurities, She’s not your mom.

Talks too much about himself:

Women win hands down when it comes to being a good listener, though don’t test her patience. Taking too much about yourself all the time, will make her feel unimportant. If she is giving you her undivided attention, make sure you listen to her in return. Hop into the car and don’t bother to unlock her door. This is plain selfish and lazy. Women’s equality may dictate that a man no longer opens a woman’s car door first, but it doesn’t negate manners. Women still like to be treated as if they are special and this little forgetful act can kill the thrill.

He’s got bad breath:

Imagine having a first kiss derailed because of halitosis! Sometimes a guy can’t help it, but there are many products on the market to keep breath fresh. A visit to the dentist may be in order. He boasts about his past affairs. this just makes most women want to get up and leave.

This is beyond rude:

A man who shares his intimate sexual past with a new woman is headed for a very lonely intimate sexual present. He wears dresses that are too tight or too loose.

Bad Pick-Up Lines: A sense of humor can be a great thing— when a guy is actually funny. A good pickup line will leave a woman with a lasting impression. But more often, women are exposed to guys who try so hard that they are female turn-offs. With many women, it is a one-shot deal. Lame pickup lines or bad jokes will erase any opportunity a man may have of getting a date. Other women may let a few bad jokes slide, but when men continue, a woman’s interest tends to diminish.

If you are not surprised by all the noise generated by the clothing allowance of our National Assembly, that is because you have that endemic disease called ‘short memory’ that affects almost all Nigerians.

We forget easily. Since the dawn of this democracy, the salaries of Senators and House of Representatives members have always been a hot potato topic. But we have never actually done anything to address it, instead we have seen it increase geometrically to what it is today. As at 2014, the budget of NASS was 150 billion naira annually.

How is it justifiable to spend that amount of money on just 360 people in an economy where the minimum wage is 18k per month.

Back in 2010 when Goodluck Jonathan was still the acting president, Sanusi Lamido Sanusi, the then Central Bank Governor, complained in one of those talk shops top government functionaries like to attend, that the recurrent expenditure of the NASS was not justifiable for an economy the size of Nigeria. What he was saying in effect was that NASS is the biggest parasite of the Nigerian treasury. Giving nothing and taking out as much as possible.

The NASS members were outraged, not because they haven't heard something like this before, but this was the first time a senior member of the government had actually come out to condemn their budget. They summoned him, along with the then minister of finance, Segun Aganga, to come and explain to them how those figures came about. We all knew the purpose of the summons was to get Sanusi to recant and apologize to them for embarrassing the NASS, while Aganga's role was to hold Sanusi’s hand while he is eating humble pie.

In any case, Sanusi stood his ground. Refused to apologize and refused to recant in spite of the threats by the NASS to engineer his sack as the CBN Governor. They were all shocked into blubbering inanity when Sanusi told them sacking him will not make a jot of difference to him because the position of head of the CBN was not a birthright he had to guard jealously at the expense of the truth. It was Aganga that surprised me in all of this. In the face of the vitriol from the NASS members, he retreated into an incoherent mess.

Unable to defend the figures that were produced by his ministry. The same figures Sanusi used to back up his claims. I was really disappointed in Aganga that day. This was a world class financial analyst who until his appointment, was a Managing Director in the world renowned international finance behemoth, Golden Sachs International of London, in charge of hedge funds; a man whose intellect was not to be sniffed at. This was the man that lost his nerve in front of that ragtag mob who fancy themselves honorables.

The case of Sanusi Lamido Sanusi vs NASS was the closest we ever came in trying to unravel how the common wealth was being wasted by just 360 people. So all the noise surrounding the issue is nothing to a man with the memory of an elephant like me. Just like the previous noises, Nigerians will always forget and move on to other fanciful and trending issues. I guess that is why nothing important ever gets done in Nigeria.

This is a new year and we all have or might have made some new year resolutions.

We all want to drop bad habits in order to have a splendid 2017. For those who haven’t made their own resolutions, below are some bad habits you should drop this year; Getting a new skincare product just because of advertising or just for the sake of trying something new, is a bad idea.

What we do not realize is that our skin is sensitive and can develop allergies on using such random products. Another mistake that most of us tend to make is to use different brands of cream every month assuming that our face will adjust. These habits ruin our appearances and lead to many skin issues and acne problems. Having too much of coffee, tea or aerated drinks are habits that tend to destroy appearances.

Normally these beverages tend to lessen the water levels in the body. There should be around 70% water in our body; anything lesser results in dehydration which in turn would cause health issues and deteriorating appearances.

Increased Alcohol Consumption:

Having a drink every once in a while will not have a major impact on your heart (especially if you consume wine, which has a series of health benefits), but if you consume alcohol regularly then you heart will suffer in the long run. In addition to the devastating effects alcohol is known to have on your liver, it can also harm your bones, affect your memory and it considerably increases the risk of heart disease along with the risk of hypertension.

Smoking:

Smoking is a silent killer, but even if we are all well-aware of the side effects of tobacco cigarettes, there still are tens of millions of smokers worldwide. As statistics reveal, smoking is responsible for approximately 30% of the deaths related to heart disease – not to mention that it is also a high risk factor for certain types of cancer like mouth, throat or lung cancer.

Sleeping face down:

If you sleep on your face first or on your stomach, you are likely to get premature wrinkles. It is because your facial skin undergoes alot of contortions due to the pressure the posture exerts. Using a moisturizer before going to bed can help you to some extent.

Of all the religions, Christianity and Islam are the main religions being practiced in Nigeria today. This article will focus on Christianity. I’m sure a couple of people have heard the word “Christendom” being used often. Basically Christendom refers to the part of the world where Christianity prevails.

It refers to Christians , their lifestyle and every aspect of them. A lot of ideologies about Christianity exists. Ideologies pertaining to how Christians are meant to live, act, and worship. Infact, while some believe that it is a religion others believe that it is not just a religion but a lifestyle that should be adopted by every Christian.

The deal now is that we have those that practice it as a religion and those that actually live it as a lifestyle. But the most interesting set of folks are those that are on the fence. They are neither here nor there. I call them the “In-between Christians”.

Two days religiosity, two days real Christians, why can’t you just belong somewhere? When things are in their favour, when everything is good they are real Christians, and they say and preach the true word as it is in the bible. Conversely, when things don’t go their way or they want to get something, they forget all about God.

That’s when you’ll hear comments like; “Guy forget the bible please“! “Lets face reality abeg”, As if those living the true life of Christ are being unrealistic. They twist scriptures to defend their selfish acts. These are the “In-between Christians”. Another set of “In between Christians” are the ones that use the cover of titles to perpetrate their nefarious acts. These are the most interesting category.

They by themselves ordain themselves pastors and begin to do evil and unimaginable things, they live double lives, misleading innocent people. We have heard of pastors who sleep with church members deceiving them into thinking it is a spiritual exercise, very terrible. A lot of times I have said to myself that if I wasn’t a Christian and I desire to become one, after seeing the way a lot of Christians live I would not even venture to be one.

Many Christians are hypocrites! They are Christians in church and totally different set of people outside the church premises. Some folks are ready to respect and even lie down for the pastor in church but they have no regard for anyone else.

Why the fake lifestyle?

Some people can even spend the night cleaning the church but to sweep in their houses will sound like an insult to them, if you ask them to do such. My advice to everyone, don’t be an “in-between Christian” live the true life of Christ both in church and outside the church. Don’t choose to be nice to your church members alone, everyone needs to be shown love.

The simple seemingly little love you show someone today can change their life forever. SHALLOM!

The best option for a lot of folks is to read and know the word so that you won't be blown about by every wind of change, and every thing that people say.

I may just be wrong about everything I have written above and so I would love to hear your view concerning this matter;

Every woman wants to keep her relationship, while some get it right, some get it wrong by doing the wrong thing, thinking they are doing the right thing. A man looses connection to a lady when:

Cancer is not a disease and so, should not be treated.

Cancer is anti-life; it is more or less the accumulation of all anti-biological toxins that you have taken in your life time which are rampant in all scientifically processed foods; Sardines, Table Water, Corn Beef, Biscuits, Bread, Soft Drinks and so many other negative western values that we have imbibed as Africans over time (Drinking and Smoking).

The human body is a natural being and should be fed or nutrified with natural nutrition, anything short of that is tantamount to having a cancerous body depending on the makeup of your body. What I am saying is not hidden and even American scientists know it but they will never admit the truth for fear of losing their jobs. I have nothing to lose, but I have life to give in the letters of my piece. Let him who has ears, hear this today.

When you have a running nose or you are sweating, it is natural for us to try to get cool and fresh air but while doing that you may actually be preventing nature’s best doctor from doing its natural job of cleansing your body. The human body needs to sweat and a running nose is all part of the process of body detoxification. If you really want a cure for cancer, consult your body, it knows how to get rid of cancer cells. It only needs your assistance by means of providing your body with natural nutrition.

Do you have cancer?

Run away from the hospital right now, it is only a quick death that you will find in the hospital and the reason is not farfetched; you cannot use a rope to chase out a snake from your domain, use a cutlass or a stick. The drugs that will be administered are scientifically produced and as such are anti-life. The reason why malaria is so rampart these days is not because the body cannot fight it, but because we have denied the body the basic nutrients that it needs to fight all forms of diseases that attack the human body.

People now prefer eating Indomie Noodles to boiling rice and making a decent and life saving stew because it is quicker and easier to prepare and probably sweeter than rice. This is just an example of the changes that have occurred in recent times about our feeding habits and seriously nothing is being done about it.

We even consciously justify ourselves by saying boil with vegetables, tomato and sardines and you have a balanced diet, balanced diet my foot, cancerous balanced diet you mean? What’s healthy about dead fishes preserved in cans with lots of preservatives to prevent them from smelling, or you think fishes don’t get rotten? If you are down with cancer, you just might be lucky if you act fast and by acting fast I mean changing all there is about your mode of nutrition, it is time to survive on a diet of fruits and fresh water.

You can boil water coming out from your borehole, it is safer than table water which gets purified with chlorine. Come to think of it, we actually pay huge sums of money to get cancer (getting nutrition the wrong way) and yet, we can hardly find a doctor who can help us get rid of this devastating epidemic, not because there isn’t one but because we take our body for granted, remember, it is God’s temple.

I’ll rest my pen hear even when there is so much to say. If you need more clarifications, use the comment box, thank you.

We are in a recession, and it is time to start thinking smartly and not just thinking of what to do. Your thought process should be all about maximising your God given potentials to bring about wealth creation.

It is time to come out from the closet and attain enviable heights with what your hands can do easily and this entails working with passion.

That being said, a few Nigerians are actually coming out of the closet and as time permits, I'll be talking about them, right now I am announcing Nelly's Events as your best bet for any Party Planning or Event Planning Service.
