FEATURED POST: BATTLING KLEPTOMANIA IN CHILDREN

BATTLING KLEPTOMANIA IN CHILDREN
THEN he stood up, leant down and took off his shoes. The hot darkness of the room lay heavily on him.

He took a slow step forward and then another. His progress was silent. Opening the door, he stepped into the outer room.

He moved on, trying each board carefully with his stockinged foot before putting his full weight on it. He closed the door gently behind him, his fingers easing the door so that it shut without a sound.

Pressing his leg against the side of the refrigerator to guide him, his hands touched the ' chocolate pack'. With a smile, he reached out to two wraps and suddenly, the light came on and he was caught yet again.

There's no doubt that raising children isn't without its attendant challenges. Right from inception, when a child is born, parents/guardians are saddled with the responsibility of providing the basic needs he  needs for  optimal growth.

BATTLING KLEPTOMANIA IN CHILDREN can be seriously fr…

BUSINESS ISSUES: HOW CAN I PROMOTE MY BUSINESS( a question most entrepreneurs rarely get answers to)

HOW CAN I PROMOTE MY BUSINESS? ( a question most entrepreneurs rarely get answers to)

EVERYDAY, we see different start-ups sprout. They begin with so much enthusiasm and zeal that gives their ' target audience' a sought of impression they will be on for a long time.

But, however, what we imagine or the   FIRST IMPRESSION we get isn't always the end result.

When these start-ups get hit with the frustration and failures on several attempts to promote their business, they allow the anger and bitterness that we all sometimes feel while on the job hijack their zeal and vision which makes their business divert from one of ascension to one of constant regression. This therefore births the ever- bulging option to fold up which they readily give in to.

To be candid, no business or start-up experiences a bump free ride to success. But this doesn't rule out the fact that it's possible to make headway.

To this effect, we've packaged, just for you, useful tips or strategies…

MOTIVATION: DEATH PAINS or BIRTH PAINS

DEATH PAINS or BIRTH PAINS?
OFTENTIMES, WE TEND TO MISREAD or misinterpret the message our present predicament is trying to pass across.
So, we throw the brick of our dreams on the wall, bend and pick up the pieces, wrap it up with a thick black linen and empty it in the trash can.
No one is exempted when it comes to feeling severe pains while on the road to success. But, the cancerous error we often make is that we fail to pause for a minute to ascertain if these pains are really death pains or birth pains.
REMEMBER, a woman in the delivery room goes through a degree of pain before the baby pops out and when gold is tossed into the fire( Pain) by the goldsmith, it comes out refined.
Oh! Ajayi Caleb, you don't seem to understand how hard it is over here. I've tried everything anybody in my shoes would have done but it all went over the bar.
Yes, you hit a rock in your quest to succeed, so you quit, thinking yourself a failure.
But, have you ever read or talked to a…

STUDENT LIFE: A FRESHER? ASPECTS OF UNIVERSITY STUDY THAT TAKES MOST FRESHERS BY SURPRISE

A FRESHER? ASPECTS OF UNIVERSITY STUDY THAT TAKES MOST FRESHERS BY SURPRISE
The transition to a higher level of education is always a tough stage for most FRESHERS. The idea of leaving home, the comfort zone of your present environment where everything you need is at your beck and call, and plunging into a new world, new air,  or new environment could be freaky.
The university being a world of its own, with customs and values you encounter nowhere else, coupled with the unlimited freedom to do, think and speak as you please, is by far different from the previous school settings you might have been exposed to.
Faced for the first time with this openness, it's natural to feel perplexed.
So, as a newbie to the system, you tend to wonder at the way things are done in your new world. The several styles that seem contradictory to that of your previous world confuse you.
The somewhat big intentions and dreams fade away because you do not know how to deliver. Nobody has ever told you wha…

FEATURED POST: LEVELS OF FRIENDSHIP

LEVELS OF FRIENDSHIP
So many people lack a clear picture and understanding of the levels of friendship which entails specific freedoms and responsibilities, depending on the closeness of the relationship.
At times, we take one level for the other. We offer our time, attention and resources to a friend expecting something equivalent in return.
But as disappointing as it may be, we get something contrary or something below our expectations and at the long-run, suffer emotional trauma and heart- break.
These emotional pains and heart breaks could have been avoided or at least reduced if one had a clear understanding of the different levels of friendship and had treated each friend according to his category.
Of a truth, the following list of the basic levels of friendship can be found in many works on relationships.
This list can help you determine the rightful place for the different people in your life:
1) ACQUAINTANCE: Literally, it means someone who is known but…

FEATURED POST: MANAGING INTERRUPTIONS

MANAGING INTERRUPTIONS
You do want to get your work done on time. At the same time, you do not want to snub others as they approach you to catch up on various activities.
Daily interruptions at your workplace can serve as an impediment to managing your time and at the long-run limit your success.
Because your day is limited to some specific hours, interruptions of whatsoever form can rob you of the time you need to attain success in your work and life.
Furthermore, interruptions can mar your concentration and this means you have to spend more time to re -program yourself to the processes needed to complete your work.
Managing these interruptions well will help you improve your relationship status with your co-workers, your time management skills, and boost  your efficiency in your day to day activities.

MOTIVATION: I THINK MYSELF HAPPY

   I THINK MYSELF HAPPY
IF YOU DO NOT KNOW, let it be known to you today that your thought produces your words, and your words instigate your actions. Your thoughts not only become things, they are very powerful things.

Therefore, it's very important for you to guard what flows in and out of your ' thought centre'.
You know how it works, if you think you're going to get depressed, you think yourself depressed. " I'm depressed." Why?- because you're thinking about it.
Your ' thought centre' is supreme, it's the Creative Principle, and what a man's thought can fabricate, it can certainly liquidate.
Whenever you hit a rock in your quest to succeed, you go all the way to ' think yourself a failure'. 
But, have you ever read or talked to anybody who's done anything of any significance and has not hit days, weeks, and months when they had to burrow through all kinds of opposition? So, believe that you can do anything. And guess w…
