“The Danger of a single-sided story” – Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie
My story has been one of ups and downs. It inspires me every day to move because I have no room for negative energies, and do not let people define me.
As the Great Chinua Achebe said “Nobody can teach me who I am. You can describe parts of me, but who I am – and what I need – is something I have to find out myself.”
Avoid letting people tell you who you are, the fact is, they know only a small piece from their own perspective which is one-sided and putting you in a confined box. This is a major reason to take part in the Afro-Bloggers convention and get yourself well informed.
The Afro-Blogger Convention (ABC) is the coming together of bloggers of African descent from all over the world, who tell their story from their perspective, protecting the image of the continent and speaking with one voice to discuss and proffer solution to the issues of our community.
The second Afro-Bloggers Convention will take place online, on the 19 – 20 June 2020. The Topic is Re-information. It will be an interactive session with various speakers which will end with a panel discussion for both days. This is an event you cannot afford to miss!
The power to choose is yours for the taking, although a lot of people are governed by fear and let others decide for them. When you do that, you let yourself down because you are the only one who can decide right for yourself.
A positive mind is open to possibilities, and it is the bedrock for success. Positive thinking allows you see what others don’t see.
Imagine a situation where business ideas are discussed, SWOT analysis is done. It does not matter if it is over tea, beer, coffee or in a conference room. What matters is, the potential of creative ideas that can generate wealth is discussed.
When I notice negative people, I can tell, simply because as humans we are spiritual beings. what I do in such times is to cut off from them, since negative energy can become toxic, and it takes a lot of energy to correct someone who is negative minded.
Humans are more connected than IoT (Internet of Things). You can only feel it if you are connected with yourself first. A lot of people are just existing and not living. Sometimes, you need to drop your phones and gadgets and feel the environment to connect. We have energy all around us.
Deep in you, lies the power to connect to the universe. Do you want to change your job? Search and you will find what you want. You want to change your life, change how you think and things will fall in place. It takes displine to understand oneself, and when you do, nothing is impossible. Be creative, you are here for a reason. Dare to do more and impress yourself.
