What's Your Testimony?

What is your testimony when life comes like a flood against you? We in Nigeria have never been hiut like this before with flood but as usual, we always survive one way or another...but to those affected by the flood, my heart goes out to you, but for you reading this, what if you were in there shoes? What would you do to keep your spirit in one piece? here's the testimony of a child (though hilarious) but what exactly how he could explain himself....I quote "...Before when the flood never come, we dey eat rice once a week, now when flood don come, na every day we dey eat rice with better better meat"... in English it means ( Before the floods came, we only eat rice once a week, but after the floods came, we now eat rice every day with good meat!)...So whats your testimony?...Tell me what you would do....

How to buy N60.00 Ewa Aganyin with just

Time to Laugh all my African readers, especially my Nigerian friends....Laughter makes the heart merry and is good medicine for the soul. I saw this article on my friends blog  (Atilola Moronfolu) and could not help laughing all the way, I just had to share it with you too

 

How to buy N60.00 Ewa Aganyin with just N40.00 – The Authentic Seven Step Manual.



Source













I have been suspecting something for the past few months. As the days go by, my suspicion grows stronger. I think the woman selling Ewa Aganyin in my area has jazzed me with her beans. I am beginning to suspect that all these ‘Iya Bashira-ish’ rumours are true o, so my pipuls, if you must patronise Bukas, shine your eyes well well. Or how can I explain how I always want to eat her Ewa Aganyin every single day.  It doesn’t matter whether there is food at home or not, I still crave for her beans. Even when we are having parties in my house, I still send someone to buy her beans with bread, despite all the plenty food at home. The overall irony of all is that I don’t even like beans, and cannot stand where they are cooking any type of beans. The only type of beans I now eat is Ewa Aganyin and preferably the one from this particular woman in my area. You see why I am suspecting the jazz thing?

After my many bowl-carrying trips to her place, to and from work, I realised that I will be spending an overall substantial part of my salary, which is not very much, with her. Because of the efficiency of the yet-to-be-proved-but-effective jazz, I always feel that the beans they sell to me is too small. So, with my newly acquired experience and expertise in buying Ewa Aganyin, I have now been able to develop a wise way of buying N40.00 beans and a substantial Ewa Aganyin pepper that would satisfy me.

This method works all the time with any Ewa Aganyin seller, I can beat my chest to it. This manual I am selling to you has a money-back guarantee backing it, so no worries. So here it goes

Step 1
Walk to the small girl selling the beans (usually, the owner of the shop is not the one selling, she usually puts a smaller girl she imported from Cotonou. This is one of the reasons why the beans is always smaller, as she doesn’t want to oversell and later receive a knock from her madam) from her Ikoko Irin.

Step 2
Ask the girl to sell N30.00 beans to you. Yes, I know its N40.00 beans you want to buy, but just follow my instruction. I am the Ewa Aganyin-buying expert here so do as I say you read. Ask her to sell N30.00 beans. In most cases, she will sell you three table spoons of beans. If you are like me, you will be internally fuming at the small size of beans, but externally keeping your calm and acting tush because you got down from your car to buy the beans. Also, you don’t want the onise owos (artisans) sitting on the wooden bench, eating, to see you lose your cool.

Step 3
Please, monitor the number of table spoons of beans she is selling, as she is going to sell only three and will be speedy about it, as you are not the only customer waiting to be attended to. When the girl is about to sell the third spoon, say this to her, “Abeg, sell am well well o.” This will make the small girl feel she did not sell the first two spoons well, so she will ensure that the last spoon gauges well, and this act will ensure that your beans is a little more than the usual three table spoons.

Step 4
Once Step 3 is completed, before she puts the Ewa Aganyin special pepper on top of the beans, say this to her “Won’t you put fisi?” This manual advises that you say this in Yoruba. She is an imported Egun girl from the Badagry borders, and would most likely understand Yoruba. If you don’t speak Yoruba, say it in Pidgin. If you don’t speak Yoruba and Pidgin, well, I wonder why you are reading this manual in the first place. Go and buy your Ewa Aganyin from Mr Biggs’ Village kitchen. The sad fact is that the N200.00 Ewa Aganyin you would be buying there is going to be equivalent to the N30.00 own we are pricing here. Sorry o, but after all, you are blessed. So please, walk on or flip over to the next page to read the next article.

So as I was saying to the people that can speak Yoruba or Pidgin. Ask the lady for fisi. Most Lagos sellers comply with the ‘fisi policy’. Don’t be surprised if the small girl has started frowning by now. Don’t worry, your own is to make sure you get the maximum benefit from your money by following this manual. After putting the fisi, your N30.00 beans should be slightly more that the N40.00 value for now. She will then sell the special pepper on top.

Step 5
After she has packed your food and given you back your bowl, put it in the carrier bag you brought with you. Hopefully, you didn’t just get down from your car with a bowl without a carrier bag, as you are not interested in announcing to the whole world that you just bought Ewa Aganyin. Hold your food and hesitate a bit. Ask for bread if you want one.

You have to apply skill in what you are about to do now. No one must suspect that you have thought of this before. All of a sudden, bring out the bowl of beans you initially bought in an instant, and say to the small girl, “You know what, I don’t think this N30.00 beans will be enough, make it N40.00.” Yes, if the small girl is wise, which she might most likely not be, she would glance at you, knowing you just scammed her. But she would have no choice to collect the bowl from you and add another table spoon. Whatever is in your bowl by now, though it cost N40.00, would not have been as much as this if you had told the girl to sell you N40.00 beans right from the start. You see why I said I am the expert and you must follow the instructions of this manual?

Step 6
Just like one of the numerical methods in Pure Mathematics (I cannot let my GEG 402 Engineering Mathematics course go to waste), this is called an Iterative step, or what we call Iteration. Repeat Step 3, and tell her, “Abeg, sell well well o.” For the second time, she would be forced to gauge the spoon well again. By now, your N40.00 beans should be reaching like N60.00 value.

Step 7 (optional)
Just in case you are feeling lucky, you can press the Google’s ‘I-am-feeling-lucky-button’, and repeat Step 4 by telling the small girl to add fisi again. You take this particular step at your own risk. I would not take responsibility for what would happen to you if you do not take this particular step wisely. You must be able to be sensitive to the atmosphere in the environment. This step is for the extremely wise and cautious. It is really not compulsory, as your N40.00 Ewa Aganyin should be voluminous by now. So don’t do overkill because of greed.
So yes these are the steps to buying beans worth of N60.00 with just N40.00. As I said before, this manual is being sold to you with a money-back guarantee. It means, if it doesn’t work for you, I would return your money, provided you show me the beans your Ewa Aganyin vendor normally sells for N40.00 and the one she sells for N60.00. You must also show the one you actually bought for you to have known the manual did not work, so we can compare and confirm that these claims you make are real and true.

Slow and Steady

Have you ever heard the popular slogan that slow and steady wins the race? well I beg to disagree! I think it largely depends on what you are into...in a 100m race for instance, would slow and steady give you the title? Hell no!

To reach the top, do what others won't

To reach the top, do what others won't

By Rory Vaden, Special to CNN

A man holds a Mexican Red-Legged tarantula.
A man holds a Mexican Red-Legged tarantula.

STORY HIGHLIGHTS
  • Successful people consistently do the things that others aren't willing to do, says Rory Vaden
  • If you feel yourself putting something off because you're afraid, do it anyway, he says
  • Vaden argues that we must stop fixating on the here and now, and think about the big picture
Editor's note: Rory Vaden is co-founder of Southwestern Consulting and author of the New York Times bestseller Take the stairs: 7 Steps to Achieving True Success.
(CNN) -- Getting ahead in your career is not just about being successful; it's about being noticed.
So how do you stand out to be hired by potential employers? How do you stand out for a promotion to a superior? How do you stand out as loyal to the people you are leading? It's simple: do the things that others aren't willing to do.
Rory Vaden
Rory Vaden
Whether you're a leader, a team member, or a candidate, success comes from having the discipline to do the things that you know you should be doing, even when you don't feel like doing them. When you practice this kind of self discipline regularly, you'll naturally stand out from the pack -- because most people avoid the hard stuff. It's just easier to put it off.
But the truth is that what feels easy now creates problems down the line. And what feels hard now -- doing the stuff you don't feel like -- makes everything easier in the long-term. Self discipline doesn't have to be hard -- you just have to change the way you think about it.
Successful people have mastered the art of self discipline. I've spent the last 10 years studying and coaching some of the most successful people in business, figuring out what makes them different. They're not smarter or more talented than the average person -- they just consistently do what others aren't willing to do by keeping three principles in mind:
Fear is one of the biggest saboteurs of our goals, because it inhibits action.
Rory Vaden
Do it scared. Fear is one of the biggest saboteurs of our goals, because it inhibits action. The next time you feel yourself putting something off because you're afraid -- of uncertainty or failure -- just "do it scared."
I once heard a true story of a woman who was trapped in a burning building on the 80th floor. She was terrified of heights and enclosed spaces, and when the fire alarm went off, she refused to follow her colleagues into the stairwell to evacuate to safety.
The firemen did a sweep of the building and found her hiding under her desk, waiting to die. She was screaming "I'm scared, I'm scared!" as the firemen insisted she walk down the stairwell. Until one fireman said: "that's OK, just do it scared." He repeated it all the way down the 80 flights of stairs, until he brought her to safety.
We've all faced these moments in our careers -- when you know what has to be done, but your fear holds you back. In order to stand out, you must develop the habit of acting in the face of fear. It's fine to be scared -- do it scared. It's fine to be unsure -- do it unsure. It's fine to be uncomfortable -- do it uncomfortable. Just do something.
This is the attitude of the most disciplined and successful people on the planet. They might be scared, but they do it anyways. And by just doing something, you create movement and momentum that will lead to progress and results.
Perfectionism is one of the most common reasons people procrastinate, and we've all done it at some point.
Rory Vaden
Habits, not results. Perfectionism is one of the most common reasons people procrastinate, and we've all done it at some point.
The best way to overcome this impulse is to put your self esteem into stellar work habits instead of results. It can take a while to see the fruits of your labor -- whether you're spearheading a new initiative, trying to launch a business, or planning a second act career. To keep yourself motivated, take pride in sticking to your work habits, rather than looking for immediate results. In time, success will follow.
Remember the big picture. The pursuit of any goal will inevitably face a number of obstacles. The difference between those who stand out in the careers and those who blend in lies in what you do when you reach these critical turning points. Do you hesitate and turn back? Or do you press forward? When you feel frustrated, depressed, or disappointed, don't give up -- just get some perspective.
I have a mental reminder that helps me push past these hurdles. I hold my pen up to my eye and stare directly down the barrel. Then, I pull it away and look at it in its entirety. It's a quick way to remind myself to look at my life in the same way.
Stop fixating on the here and now, and think about the big picture. Today's challenges may not make sense, but you must have faith that over the long-term, they will be nothing more than blips on the radar screen. Having this perspective and faith will help you press forward at the moments when others turn back.
Contrary to popular belief, people who have reached the highest levels in their careers aren't necessarily better educated, more talented or better connected. Neither are they simply more motivated or harder workers. Rather, successful people have realized that getting to the top means that they first have to do the things that they don't want to do related to their goals.
It's not about enjoying self discipline -- it's about adopting a few new ways of thinking that simply make discipline easier to endure. And when you develop the habit of doing things that others won't do, you're putting yourself on the fast track to the route to the top.

What are you Designed for?


So many persons pass through this world without knowing what they’ve been designed to achieve or what their purpose on earth is for. They live only to eat. But is that all to life? How do you find fulfillment? It’s in the discovery and the actualization of purpose. Imagine this scenario for instance, if you are headed somewhere and you don’t know the description of where you are going; you would eventually pass by the place without realizing it!
I know a man, yes I know a man named Archbishop Benson A. Idahosa, popularly called “Papa”, A man of faith, a man of purpose, He knew what his purpose on earth was, and when his work was done, he knew also! In summary, He came, he discovered, he fulfilled, he conquered!
I won’t say much on this post; just know that when purpose is not known, abuse is inevitable!
Discover your purpose today and fulfill it!

Show Some Love

Do you know that in every portion that you have, someone’s ration is in it? What I mean is simply this…For every dollar you earn; someone’s 99cents could be inside it…you don’t have to spend it all. Remember that we live for posterity when we begin to help plant and establish people.Learn to show love to people.

You don’t have to be stinking rich before you are able to help others…its not about the much you have to give, but about the much you can give; even when it’s so little. Little drops of water makes mighty oceans you know.

The volume of love you give is bigger than the volume of money you attach to it. Love makes little things seem so big in the eyes of people who are loved. Some persons are tied to their properties so much so they can’t let go a farthing! Instead of them possessing the properties, it’s now the other way round! Learn to show love to people, more so to those that you know can never repay you, that is sacrificial love!

Show love to someone today, inspire someone with the love you have, and you will be amazed by the response you will get! Remember, in every portion that you have, lies someone’s ration…Enjoy!

Power For Great Works

It is said that power is the ability to do work. To do great works and achieve great things, you need power. Sometimes it could be physical, mental, financial, spiritual, and all that. Bottom line, you need POWER!

A pastor does miracles not by physical powers, but by the powers inherent in him, this is spiritually referred to as the power of the Holy Ghost.
A weight lifter lifts a 50kg mass weight like an egg, why? He possesses physical powers, which are muscular.
A short small man been guarded by ten security guards who call him “boss” has what? Financial powers!

So you getting my drift? To achieve great things you need power! So what ever you want to accomplish in life, ask yourself, what amount of power is need to achieve it? This will tell you how you should prepare for it….it is said that you don’t go into a strong man’s house except you have tied him up, then you can spoil his goods.

You want to achieve great works this year? Know the amount of power you need that will sustain you!
I would love to read your comments and success stories here….

Taking Responsibility For Achieving Greatness

Do you know that even Jesus had a sense of responsibility when he was in human form on earth? He got busy doing His fathers business, and when He was done, He left... How serious do you take your business? Or let me rephrase...How committed are you to your responsibilities? Remember if you are not committed to your vision, or passion or dream, it will die a natural death....someone once said that it is good to dream, but others wake up and take action....so you see? Wake up and take action....enough dreaming....begin taking actions and responsibility for your dreams to achieve greatness in life.

Remember, it is not wrong to dream, but wake up and take action!

SUBSIDY! SUBSIDY!! SUBSIDY!!!

Hey guys, remember I talked about “Thinking Ahead” in my last blog post to you right? If you haven't read it please do! @ http://www.inspireme4life.blogspot.com
The most dreaded times we've feared has finally come upon us...Nigerians would understand what I'm talking about...
SUBSIDY REMOVAL!.....Sounds like a “plague” word right? Yeah it will If you're not prepared for it!

General opinions are flying to and fro, comments being thrown vehemently to who cares to listen, tempers flaring left, right and center, everything in a Topsy-turvy, total chaos, confusion, all because of one word, SUBSIDY REMOVAL!
Now I'm not saying if its right or wrong, but all I have to say is that everything has to do with timing. For example, if you're late for your flight, you will miss your flight, no matter how hard you pray!

Now the issue of subsidy removal has torn a big hole in the trust of Nigerians in the Nigerian government, whether you like it or yes. Let's define democracy as simply as possible...it is government of the people, by the people and for the people. A government that does not take into cognizance the voices of its people is definitely democracy only on paper! A leadership without followership is a disasterious mirage! Most questions which has been asked in time past was, who will bell the cat? I dare to state here categorically, that its no longer taking the bull by the horns that Nigerians need, it's taking the bull and yanking off its horns! No manner of persons can dare hold this nation to ransom anymore...lets expose them all... Nigerians are tired of living from hand to mouth, if we don't take our stand now, our children will blame us for our cowardice, and we are no cowards! Whatsoever the heck is subsidy removal anyway? The 2011 budget has made provision for it till March 2012, so why the rush to remove subsidy NOW? And not many saw it coming, they were hit cold in the face by the news on a faithful day, what a new year gift! Some even had to sell their belongings to make up for transport fare to take them back to their stations, it was as bad as that! Now imagine this scenario, Nigerians are faced with terrorism attacks, in the pseudo name of “boko haram”, now the whole of Nigeria joined hands with the government to fight this menace, and then suddenly they too become part of the casualty by way of this subsidy removal, thereby removing food from their mouth. Now people who are supposed to help fight insecurity are now turning around to fight you! The answer is obvious!....instead of tackling one challenge at a time, the government is biting off more than it can chew. No matter how right a thing is, if it is done in the wrong time, it still remains wrong!

Nigerians are tired of being cheated....When I was a kid, I sang this song written by a popular musician (God rest his soul)......”Which way Nigeria?”......Nigeria is more than 50years old, should our children still sing this song when they grow up? God forbid! Lets change Nigeria! IT'S NOW OR NEVER!!!
To a better Nigeria filled with good people that will make this Nation great again and a sought after, I see a Nigeria where we will be honest enough to call a spade a spade, a Nigeria where bribery and corruption would be deleted forever from our dictionary, a Nigeria without segregation or classes, where we live as ONE!

GOD BLESS NIGERIA!!! GOD BLESS AFRICA!!!

I would like to hear from you your comments, views and also your challenges, so we could solve them together. I would love to read your mails, please send them to inspireme4life@yahoo.com or you could visit http://www.inspireme4life.blogspot.com and feel free to sign up for my monthly inspireme! Tips.
