HOME

When we think of Home, a beautiful family living in a peaceful apartment comes to mind. We often picture a happy couple with some amazing kids. While many of us seem to have an idea of what a home is, very few truly understand and experience the true essence of a 'Home'.

Many unconsciously walk around the world searching for a 'HOME' 

A Home, I believe, is where you're shown true love and care. Home is that 'place' where you're Accepted and Loved for who you are. Home is where your heart finds rest and peace. Where you belong, where you're treasured and treated like a million bucks! 
Home is where your Strengths are emphasised over your Weaknesses and your Goodness before your Faults. 
Home is where you find your true and best friends. Where you find strength in times of weakness, courage when fear comes knocking, help in times of need and motivation when you're discouraged. 
It's therefore not surprising that some find 'home' in the Streets, in the slums of Lagos. The truth is, to some, the environment doesn't really matter, what does is that they find a 'home' there.

'Home' is an important part of our lives. From the foregoing, it'll be obvious that a 'home' is what Jesus intended His church to be, a place where you're accepted and loved unconditionally for who you are, then nurtured lovingly to become who God originally created you to be.

Some of us grew up in homes where we're showered with love and kindness. While some don't have such luxury or as many will call it, luck, we must understand that we can, ( and we should because we're able to) find 'Home' first, in God's love. His love is infinite, immeasurable, unconditional and everlasting.

We can find 'Home' with ourselves when we come to understand, love, accept and see ourselves the way God sees us. I believe this is most healthy form of self-image we can have. Until we're able to do this, no amount of love shown to us by others will make any difference. We must feel at home with ourselves before we can feel at home with others.

HUSTLER OR ENTREPRENEUR?

Earlier today, I asked friends on my Whatsapp time-line the difference between a Hustler and an Entrepreneur. Of course, there was a plethora of answers as different people gave very distinct meanings in response. What surprised me the most was that no two people gave the same answer. Everyone had a distinct point of view.
However, for the sake of clarity and simplicity I decided to curate most of the responses as well as my personal observations into an article.
First and foremost, a Hustler is someone who "make strenuous efforts to obtain" money or profit from different areas or businesses engagements. An entrepreneur however is one who starts a business (or businesses), manages it to produce tangible value and make profit from it. 
You see, it's easy to assume there's not much difference between the two personalities but there are. 
While Kemi, a LASU Undergraduate perceives the difference in the freedom an Entrepreneur enjoys compared to a Hustler, Success, a Bl…

Character

Think of character as having the benefits of a house’s foundation during a huge storm. If the foundation is strong enough, it will stand firm when the waters come. But when it is weak, the house will come down crumbling even at the slightest wind. That’s why it’s important that we develop a good character. It is often said that hard work will take you to the top but character will keep you there.  
 "Many succeed momentarily by what they know  Some succeed temporarily by what they do Few succeed permanently by who they are”
What then is character?  The Cambridge Advanced Learners Dictionary defines it as “the particular combination of qualities in a person that makes them different form others”. In the simplest terms, character is “who you are”, nothing more nothing less. It is often widely described as who you are when no one else is watching. Your character is what defines you. In other words, your true value can be more than what your degrees, reputation and even your pay check …
