             WISDOM SERIES
 believe almost everyone reading this article would agree with me that the present state of the world is what one can best describe as ‘an uproar in the system of things’. Everything is just going A-wire by the passing of each day and we call to mind the words of JESUS CHRIST at Mathew 24:5-7 . I mean look at the world’s economy at present and tell me what you can best describe it as. As for me, I would describe it as ‘A FAILING SYSTEM TENDING TO EVEN GREATER FAILURE’.I tell you that since the global economic meltdown in 2007, the world has never been the same. Companies had to reduce their payrolls and increase the names in their blacklists. Don’t blame them because it is no fault of theirs .they are just doing what is necessary if their firm must survive the hard times. Developed nations have recorded high level of poverty because almost every day, one person loses his/her job.      
     What has this failing economic system produced so far? Of course there should be an effect thus conforming to Newton’s third law of motion which states thus “to every action there is an equal and opposite reaction”. In this case, a failing economic system is the action and if you ask me what the reaction is in this particular context, I would say that:
  • ·         Increasing numbers of unemployed people in the society.
  • ·         Increasing numbers of street dwellers {homeless people}.
  • ·         Increasing numbers of criminals because everyone is looking   for an escape route from poverty.
  • ·         Increasing numbers of rapists because an ‘idle/jobless mind they say is the devils  workshop'
  • ·         The suicide roll has made an impressive figure too. Figures of those who couldn’t bear the news of their zero account and a crumbled business which has taken them a lifetime to build.  
These are just few of the effects of our failing economic system. Even if you didn’t agree with my view of the world earlier on, I believe a look at these effects would open your eyes to what I see.

              WISDOM SERIES 

      You know life is funny, life is amusing, filled with all sorts of foolishness, ugliness, laziness, and bad qualities
but yet it is the very definition of beauty and wisdom itself.
        You know sometimes i begin to wonder why there are good and bad people, why there are moral and immoral people, why there
are wise and foolish people, why there are strong and weak people ,why there are hardworking and lazy people,
why there are rich and poor people, why some are masters and others are slaves. I mean why can't everyone be good?, why can't everyone
be moral?, why can't everyone be wise?, why can't everyone be strong?, why can't everyone be hardworking?, why can't everyone be rich?,
and why can't everyone be masters?.
        A walk down the path of my thoughts, I saw that true to me, everyone can be good, everyone can be moral, everyone can be wise
everyone can be strong,, everyone can be hardworking, everyone can be rich, and everyone can be masters of themselves. But I realized that
even this thought of mine is not practical. I mean if everyone becomes wise, then who will listen to who?, if everyone be good, then who will
be the vessel unto dishonor?,if everyone be moral,then who will make CNN's news headlines of crime,corruption, murderer,rapists and suicide
bombers?, if everyone be strong, won't everyday be a showdown?, if everyone becomes rich, then who will sleep on the streets and under the
bridges in the cold dark nights, if everyone becomes masters of themselves, then who will serve them?
       This thought of mine i guess is pratical enough. But even more practical is this one thing i know for sure
, "WE ARE WHO WE WANT TO BE". We can be good, bad, hardworking, lazy , rich, poor, wise , foolish, e.t.c. It all
depends on us.
       I mean, what stops me from becoming wise?, isn't it just a matter of decision and doing what needs to be done?
But even this simple question sometimes calls for rethink for people like me who tried to stand up on their feet
but yet failed many times. You know in those times, I thought about the drought ravaged children of the Sudan that
if they were given half the opportunity i was given, they would make greatness for themselves, yes i know poverty and disaster is not everyone's
idea of fun, but we would have to sometimes understand that "sorrow is the isle of transformation for the foolish minded one, there itself does wisdom lie.
      But in  the long run, i knew i was not foolish though i did some foolish things, i was not lazy thogh i slept like a sloth, it was just a matter of me
gathering some more strenght and strapping back up on my feet. Do you know why this is?, it is because i am who i want to become. So my readeres out there,
never forget this, "WE ARE WHO WE WANT TO BECOME".   

                                 10 INSPIRATIONAL WORDS TO SEE YOU THROUGH YOUR DAY
·         The problem of a man is the problem of most men so don't worry you are not alone.
·         If you can dream it , then you can  achieve it.
·         Impossibility is a word used only by a lazy man.
·         It is always possible for those who want it enough.
·         The universe is governed by laws, life involves applying the right laws to solve the problems before you.
·         With every dream comes a price to be paid and with every foolish action comes consequences.
·         The price for success is hard work.
·         The catalyst for success is determination.
·         Our limitations exists only in our thoughts.
·         I know there exists a niche in the plain of greatness for a little skinny child who lives in the valley of poverty but houses in him a dream far beyond his status.
