In life, what you desire and what you deserve are different.

The more you see the more you want is the temperament of life. As you grow, interact, gain experience and exposure, your wants, desires, preferences and ambition appreciates in value, quality and texture.

The quality and type of food you want to eat, the quality and type of clothes you'd like to wear, the jewelry you'd like to have and adorn, cars you'd want to have and drive, where you want to live, the design of your apartment and location as well. Your preferred vacation destinations and flight bouquet. You'll like a cruise, like to see lovely shows, visit lovely places and all.

The sophistication of your family, education of your children and general wellbeing becomes critical. Generally you'll want a good life, the best you can dream of, the best you can get.

But all these don't come by just desiring them; to have them you must deserve them. To deserve them you must earn them, to earn them you must truly deploy yourself.

Long ago back in the days when i was still in school, i learnt a very big lesson on perception and reality.

I was a very playful down to earth kind of person, no airs, no pretense, realistic and vocal. I didn't really bother much what people thought of me. I just wanted to do my stuff enjoy myself and be cool like that.

I had friends, gosh i did have friends and i was always in and about everything, politics, shows, events, various campus activities and all that. I wasn't particular about how people saw me or rated me or interpreted my personality – if i was ok with it, then its fine.

I loved to study and my grades meant so much to me not to impress or compete with anyone, i just loved my course and enjoyed being totally involved with it. This academic passion and performance made me popular and friendly with many of my lecturers and in fact i became very good friends with quite a number of them and we had relationships outside academic matters.

It's a new business year and as usual the bombardment by sales people from different industries, sectors and businesses. They begin to pay the initial courtesy visit and as typical their line of approach and conversation is, “how is everything going sir, how was the holiday season? ‘how is business.. .’ and all that, and the next statement which I find absolutely unprofessional is, Oga please don't forget me this year o! You know we didn't do much business together last year, so please o, this year, don't let them sack me, please help me so that I can meet my target.’

So many of them from different sectors, even the so called high profile businesses with global exposure boast, have sales people with this kind of crass, unprofessional approach to selling.

You approach me to do business with your organization, and then you take the attention away from your organization and what your has to offer and place the attention on you, expecting me to make a business decision based on the sentiments of your person as the sales man and not on the merit of the offering, it is unlikely that any serious minded business man would sacrifice the interest of the business no matter how insignificant, to please a salesman who lacks the ethics, capacity and discipline to sell professionally, except if there are other motives for buying besides pure purchase.

WAYS BUSY PEOPLE MAKE TIME TO READ.

 Borrow more books than you can consume.
If you want to read more books, you need more books sitting around triggering thoughts like, “Hey! I could be reading right now!” Libraries have ludicrously large “limits” on items you can check on (it lets you check out 100 books at a time). So go crazy and grab anything that looks interesting. Return anything you don't get to. Some of the most prolific readers I've talked to return three out of four books unread. This is not something to feel guilty about.

Read more than one book at a time.
If you've got two free hours, you might be in the mood for something deeper than if you've only got 20 minutes. People who read a lot have something going to satisfy all appetites.

Try the 50-page rule.
Or even the 10-page rule. While some books play hard to get until 100 pages in, if you feel compelled to finish all books you start, you may get tripped up on something boring and not read again for weeks. Quit after a few dozen pages if you're not feeling it. You'll find something else you love more soon.

One of the strongest holds on our progress and success is our inability to let go of our past.

Every decision we want to make or need to make is judged and subjected to analysis of what we call past experience and we use the memory of that past experience to predict future outcomes.

The past isn't particularly a bad or negative reference point. In fact it is a fantastic way of learning, and understanding better ways to getting results.

Without any reference to our past, it will be as though were just at the starting line.

Great progress has been made in various fields including science and technology, by building on discoveries and inventions of the past. References to the works others have done in the past are the catalyst for rapid progression in any endeavour.

Not to keep repeating the same feat, reinventing the wheel or remaining stagnant, wisdom is to keep building on what has been done before.

Employment is popularly believed to be a condition of having paid work, an activity to which one devotes time for compensation. But i have at times looked at paid employment from another perspective. And I think it’s an exciting perspective empowering one’s mind comprehend employment from a more profitable and progressive stand point.

Seeing your employment purely as a situation where an organization takes you on, gives you tasks, responsibilities and objectives and expects you to work within the scheme of their set up, get paid regular salary and promotes you as at when due is kind of boring and stereotype. Worse still, it diminishes or tends to devalue the worth of your qualification and certification.

Let me explain, you see your certificate is a proof that you possess certain knowledge, skills and competencies. It is not a passport or identification document, it’s a proof of possession; an evidence that you have knowledge and certain competencies. Your skills, abilities and knowledge cannot be seen because it’s not tangible, it’s not an item, its ability hence, the certificate serves to prove to would-be buyers that you possess the knowledge, skill and ability they may be looking for.

A rubber band never fulfils its purpose until it is stretched. Everyone loves to be comfortable. We hardly want to be disturbed, inconvenienced or moved. Once we become comfortable with a circumstance, process, situation or order we don't want to change. We want to remain like that because it's really easy to remain on the same spot.

The key drivers that would compel most employees to desire promotion and change in level are financial reward, power and control. Imagine a set up where hierarchy is not in place and the income is not determined by the level of responsibility, I assure you; no one would take on any new task or responsibility. If there's no benefit tied to any position in cash or power or control, I don't see anyone fascinated about taking up such roles.

For example why would I want to take on the role of a supervisor in a team if I won't get additional income and won't be in charge of the team or anybody? The additional responsibility as a supervisor then becomes a stress factor and not a promotion.

I believe many of us love to have. We want to be able to meet financial and material obligations as at when required. We hate to be in need; living a life of insufficiency and lack. Naturally as people with ego, we hate to beg and depend on others to support and assist us frequently. We all cherish a situation where we are giving and helping others out. We hate to be a victim of poverty and lack. I hate poverty and I'm sure you do too.

Many keep confessing and endlessly state the fact that they hate poverty and can't afford to be poor. In fact some have referred to poverty as a disease! I've been thinking lately and I've been a bit curious so I asked this question, what exactly is poverty? What is poverty?

Wikipedia online dictionary defines poverty as the state of being inferior in quality or insufficient in amount leading to privation, neediness, destitution and indigence. Hmmm. I must confess I was a bit taken aback by this definition because I was looking for a definition connected to lack of cash; I was looking for a definition that would say something about money! Incidentally, nothing like it.

Imagine that these rules have been carved into two slabs of stone that are being delivered to you, except instead of coming down from a mountaintop, they're being delivered from the bottom rung of the corporate ladder.

1. You shall not put a few extra minutes of sleep above basic hair care. I know, you wake up early every morning and it gets old – so do the rest of us, lady. And if you're rolling in here with wet hair, the rest of us can tell that you can't handle it. So do yourself a favor and blow-dry that piece. Same goes for that thing that girls with curly hair do when it looks crunchy and hard.

2. You shall not walk into work wearing rubber outrages on your feet. This includes, but is not limited to, flip flops, sneakers, rain boots, Crocs. I get it, walking to work is cool, and it sucks doing it in heels. It really does, I know.

Life as i see it is a journey you embark on for a purpose bigger than yourself and your needs. I think a life well lived is such that adds value to its generation and a legacy for posterity.

Many today due to the way we were raised, the people that raised us, the environment within which we grew up and tough experiences in life has coloured and in effect damaged our view and approach to life.

Many live by a core instinct called survival. we believe living long in this world is all there is to it hence, we do all we can to survive for as long as possible.

If death is common to all at the end of the day inspite of how much we work and struggle to stay alive then the purpose and essence of life cannot just be survival and long life.

As humans our specie is superior to other creatures, hence, we have more superior purpose and responsibility in this life than just survival.
