Nothing to lose.
There is this Yoruba adage “Whoever knows the day to succeed may likely know the day to die”
Success is relative depending how you measure it. One most important point is I am most grateful to God for my life and all the blessings….good health,family and opportunities. despite everything life goes on.
In my teen, my grandfather was wonderful and lovely. Being the first child of his eldest son, I was very close to him. Always with him whenever he’s back to the city, Ibadan. From the village where he had his farming business. A successful farmer. Almost half a century after, I still remember his musical prowess. Full of philosophy. Sampler- “Boojo bade e ma ma mun siga o! Olukoso oo gbodo riinan o”. When it rains with lightning, don’t lit a cigarette! The god of thunder doesn’t like smoke. In Yoruba mythology, “shango” is the god of thunder. There is epic movie of that title.
I never knew how it came but I knew way back that in whatever I do or wherever I am, I always want to stand out. I also know that early that success would make you to stand out. I desired it so much and I saw creativity as the vehicle. My first shot was having an outfit called ” Creative Desire”, to “Keem Craft2Wear”, to “Prestige Collection”, to “Keem Prestige” to now ” Keem Prestige Global Success Network”. That’s the new dispensation and it’s by God’s grace for real. This span close to 3 decades with lots of creative commitments.
I have come to the INTERNET with all humility to learn and to do, to face challenges and overcome it. To have fulfillment all though the rest of my life. Dear Lord help me. Amen.
My appeal to my contemporaries and youth alike is to embrace internet and stop thinking it is a future thing. It is today thing, as one of my friend blogger says ” Life Out Of The Box” ( LOOB)

At every level you find youself. Successful, not yet or probably you have not seen anything like that in your life! Mostly in our drive and desire for self fulfillment, the pertinent question is who are we?. Who you are?.
In self development strategies, we must embark on a deep study of what man is and what grant him a positive change towards the attainment of destiny. The root, had to be addressed and properly diagnosed to achieve a leadway.
We need to constantly check our bearing. How do we fare in the life’s journey?. Is the stride well enough or we need to check out other issues relative to our steady growth in every area of our life. So as to thrive well at the highest level.
The question is ‘where do we go from here?’. Why, because there is always room for improvement in life generally. As human being who has so much power within us to offset positive changes, we need to not relent in appplying those power to make our situation outstanding. I mean all round. With aspiration, prayer is needed to back it up and meditation is required to settle into the reality of that desire. It’s spiritual but a neccessity, a contact point for the “keys to be handed over”.
Watching the movie documentary ‘The Secret’. So much is revealed how there is emission of what goes on inside us. A negative emission attracts constant negativity while positive emission attracts profound positivity. What law of universe bring to you is what constantly goes on in your mind and brain. Attraction magnetism.
It could be called the ‘secret’ or ‘keys’…The reality is everyone need to aquire it to secure his or her place in destiny. Many a time, the gift of man is not fully utilised. It’s proven that we hardly use up to 10% of the gift entrusted to us and there is every possibility of carrying the rest 90% to the grave.
The only solution to avoid this occurence is, be humbly open to seek knowledge in diverse area of life. Let me emphasize this fact. Internet has provided all encompassing knowledge that will make you a better living being. Your choice to accept that is your ticket for your outstanding stay on this planet earth.
Team building spirit. That is the foundation of network marketing.
Be meticulous in your approach to learning but be definite in taking steps. Which ever the area of your interest or the niche you crave for online. Seeking knowledge is paramount and in actual fact necessary so has to have a firm grip on the area of your interest.
As a newbie, it must take a bit of time to really get along. Otherwise everything may be overwhelming and discouraging. Adequate training is required to get to a level where you are sure of your standing. Take your time to get things in proper perspective for clarity.
Your niche may be affliation marketing, network marketing, self development or social media marketing. Knowledge could neither be boycotted or by-passed. It’s mandatory for adequate preparation and the pace depend on individual ability to grasp.
At this point, you must have done lots of subscriptions and have plenty of email coming in. Prompting you to take certain steps like paying affliation fee or sign on fee. The best advice here is to start bit by bit. The truth of the matter is that the learning is ongoing and non-stop.
It is also a delicate period where you can easily loose interest unless your desire and passion for online activities is very strong. If that is so, I can say it, you will go a long way. You must be prepared to overcome all obstacles on the way and not to be detered.
Like I have said earlier, internet is a race! A long haul. It is a place where you need to utilize the knowledge acquired over the time. When you take a step in the right direction, you will now have to start to build on it.
Several days ago Bill Gate predicted that in some time to come there will be no poor country in the world. This is quite promising but the stake is high. Prediction from someone as great as Bill Gate cannot be taken for granted. He knows something some of us don’t know. What it implies is that there would be no more poor man or woman on planet earth and if there is, it will be so minimal.
Nobody, including myself would have attached any seriousness to such statement had it come from political leaders, because most of the time they speak from the both side of their mouth. But coming from the legendary Bill Gate, it could not be void. The reason being that in the nearest future the world will be more digitally inclined and based on the fact that internet is very accomodating and has become a breeding ground for a new generation novae rich. It is likely for the prediction to come to pass.
The hope lies in the digital emancipation which might eventually reduce the poverty level of the world. The concern is, even a prosperous nation can still be hijacked by the privilege few, their stooge and foreign collaborators. That had been the bane of. most African countries.
Thank God for the Internet. It’s the best thing that has happen to humanity. A generational life changer. It has change life of millions of people and it’s still changing lives. Would you allow it to change yours?
Where you are is where you wanted to be. That’s fact of life. Whether by action or inaction, our doing of yesterday landed us where we are today. The good news is if our situation fall short of our expectation, it is never late to adjust and make things better irrespective of age, position, or statue. We can still effect changes and it will be better if we do.
Never bother about failure, it actually the way to success. ” Oo go, o o loogbon! Taani teacher e ?” You never been dumb and you think you are wise, who is your teacher?
Life is a teacher. Making mistake constantly and not correcting it is like one not growing up. As we grow old, life will throw all manner of things to one’s way, pleasant and unpleasant. That’s the reason one need adequate knowledge to stay on board.
Every stage of life has its challenge, but as we keep on learning. We must begin to scout for opportunity based on our ability to increase our capacity and capability. Create a genuine learning spirit so as to become an authority. The great news is knowledge is available to everyone and where it is obtainable is on the internet.
Certificate is never being required neither time limit. You are allow to go at your pace. But one thing is sure, there is availability of the required skill for one to be relevant in the new dispensation.
The world is no more where it’s used to be. It has moved and continue to move. Do you have a choice not to move? I doubt it if you do have.
It’s from inside that things straightened out. Be careful of what’s running in yours.
Calabar is a beatiful city on the rise, very clean. By the time you sleep in the night and wake up in the morning, you will see the whole place cleaned up. Manually by female sweepers working for CUDA( Calabar Uban Development Agency) which take care of the enviroment. Funny enough, it is done in the tradional way with women using two brooms on both hands at a time.
Everyday, portions are assigned to individual to clean and before 7am, they are off the street. They are paid meager allowance.
The motorised sweeping vehicle is not considered because it would take the job out of women’s hand. But which job? These people are supposed to be engaged in industries which are few aroung here. The two common saying here is ” This is a civil servant state” and “The state has no money”. Very derogatory terms.
Governance in this part of the world is about addressing the present not the future likely challenges, that’s the reason for the slow pace. The government and the people stick with the “Comfort Zone”. It is a general problem hindering the developmental drive to turn things around for good.
The relics of colonialization. Marina, Calabar.
There could not have been a better time than now to showcase these abandoned relics when the nation is celebrating 100 years of amalgamation. This Marina sea port and the structure are above 100 years old which would have been preserve adequately to serve as a tourist site, moreover it’s close to the Palace of the Paramount Ruler of the city. The Obong of Calabar.
The people of the riverine area are Efik who became the middle men between colonial master and those from hinterland. Their interaction with Oyinbo (white men) make them to copy and emulate white man lifestyle.
Till today, there is still the left over of neo-colonialism all over as being portrayed by these abandoned structures.
There is beauty in simplicity’ so also in digital lifestyle. The new world global village is where digital people live and generate digital money. Lack of digital knowledge may be a hinderance to having access to the lifestyle.
When you talk of cashless economy, you’re talking of digital economy and lifestyle. Everything you need is just a click away.
A new breed ‘preneur had emerged.
They are the new money men. They will buy old sacred castle and mansion out of old money’s hand. They are savvy, mobile. They will go anywhere and live everywhere. They are the kind of entrepreneur doing their business by the beach and in all exotic leisure spot of the world. So free and so mobile. Lifestyle of freedom is here. Where the other people work for 18 hours a day, they work 4 hour a week. System and network does the rest. They’re delibrately informal. Always in their casuals, t-shirts,denin,loafers but check their garrage, full of assorted mobile machines.
If you need the so called certificate, you can even obtained it through online study. Given time, this craze for certificate would soon be a thing of the past. Digital knowledge is only available on the internet. Even the word of God and the prophetics are preached digitally.
There is no where in the world where you can gather 10 million people on a spot. One social media tool gather above 500 million on daily basis. Okay, where do you think the market is?……….
Digital market can not be taken without good CONTENT that add value and build relationship.
Even if it takes you couple of years to get the knowledge, I think it will be better for you to live digital life
