Provoke your thoughts!

This is a collection of original words to inspire and open our minds to some realities of our lives:

1.) The greatest tragedy is having to live with anger and thoughts of being hurt, whereas the source of the pain is oblivious of the offence.

2.) Life has taught me that even the strongest minds get weak's not inconsistency, it's being human, it's imperfection!

3.) Tomorrow is a product of thoughts, words, actions, omissions and TODAY... every single moment adds up.

4.) The true value of power is made manifest in powerlessness, just as

Beware of 'False' Knights in Shining Armours

Hello dear friends, I trust you have been doing very well?

This discussion promises to be as brief as possible and straight to the point because of its nature, which is just to further reiterate some of the safety procedures some of us seem to have lost track of.

We all know that knights in shining armours are meant to be our friends or people we view as trustworthy, people who should have our backs and who help us out of difficult situations; however, nowadays we have people who lead us into those difficult situations, wolves in sheep clothing, whom I prefer to call 'false' knights in shining armours.

How else would you describe

Happy 'Hardworking' New Year with the 'Dream BIG Insurance Policy'

Disclaimer: Contrary to what the title may suggest, this article has nothing to do with Insurance as a field or as a business. Have fun reading.

I'm pretty sure we've sent all the messages, made all the calls, written BBM Statuses, tweeted, written facebook posts, posted pictures to Instagram, etc, all in the spirit of the New Year Celebration. 
I'm also sure we have received and equally sent out messages such as Happy New Year, I Wish you a prosperous new year, etc., not to mention the many 'mass-produced' messages we duplicate around. Please also indicate with a wave if you spent 31st night in Church ... Hallelujah, I did too. Oh, and lest I forget, some of us have also made New Year Resolutions. OK! So, what's next?

I remember that every year always starts as 'New' and as humans, we always hope that each year turns out better than the previous one. However, we actually contribute little or nothing towards making it happen and in the end, we curse out that particular year and embrace the coming one with the same persistent hope and the cycle just continues. Count 10 years down the line and you are already feeling that your life did not turn out well or some 'villagers' were after you. The truth of the matter is this:

The seed of advancement - Confidence!

You may have probably been in a meeting where solution was being sought to an issue and you had a contribution to make but didn't do so because you thought your idea was likely to be mocked by your fellows or that you were not qualified enough to speak or that you did not have the ability of an orator; consider also a line of business, trade or profession you probably wanted to delve into, but were afraid that you would not fare well in it or that people would wag their tongues negatively; you marvel when you see people speak in public places before hundreds or thousands or even millions of people and you

Opinion Re-Public: Should I Accept or Flee?

Hi Friends,

Here's a real life scenario requiring your candid opinions.

There is this lady from a very humble background (the word 'humble' in this context is synonymous with impoverishment or living below the poverty line....) dating a guy from a very wealthy and influential background. 
Their relationship has been okay, except for the fact that

Opinion Re-public: Would you rather confess?

Back to relationship issues, dear friends. 

I saw a programme on TV yesterday, which drew me to this particular question: if you ever cheat on your partner/spouse, would you confess or keep it to yourself, knowing the possible implications of such confession? Would you wait to get caught and confronted before confessing? Or would you still deny even when you have been caught right in the act? LOL...some people are high-profile film stars in this because even when you are looking at them committing the act, they try to prove to you that you probably are hallucinating or have gone berserk...LOL.

Then again, If your partner/spouse cheats on you and confesses, would that be the end of the relationship or would you offer him or her another chance?

Please don't forget to give reasons for your answer.

Stereotypes...Do people 'really' conform?

A stereotype is a thought that may be adopted about specific types of individuals or certain ways of doing things but that belief may or may not accurately reflect reality. It can be described as prejudice, which means a preconceived opinion that is not based on reason or actual experience.

Most, if not all of us, while growing up, were told certain things about certain groups of people; we have now grown to accept those ideas as fitting for those groups of people whether we have proved them true or not. 

For example, in Nigeria, people from
