Happiness comes from solving problems.

Problems  never stop;  they  merely  get exchanged and/or upgraded.  

Happiness comes from solving  problems.  The keyword  here is “solving.”  If  you’re  avoiding  your problems  or feel  like  you  don’t  have  any  problems,  then  you’re  going  to  make yourself  miserable.  If  you  feel  like  you  have  problems  that  you  can’t  solve,  you  will likewise  make  yourself  miserable.  

The  secret  sauce  is  in  the  solving  of  the problems,  not  in  not  having  problems  in  the  first  place. 

Happiness  is  a  constant  work-in-progress,  because  solving  problems  is  a  constant work-in-progress—the  solutions  to  today’s  problems  will  lay  the  foundation  for tomorrow’s  problems,  and  so on.  True happiness occurs only when  you  find  the problems  you  enjoy  having  and  enjoy  solving.
Be ready for problems as they arise, for they’ll definitely come but the good thing is….when they come, one way or the other there’s always a way of solving them.


LPT 104: The art of Manliness

As its often said, Being a Man is not a days job. Hence, you’ll agree with me that being a better man takes some level of convictions​.

Here are some pointers towards being the great fella You where meant to be; 
1. Knowing how to be happy without relying on other people. 

2. Knowing how and when to stick up for yourself without being overly cocky. 

3. Having conviction in your beliefs but willing to be corrected when you’re wrong.

4. Basically just being able to rise above all the bullshit surrounding you, being independent and able to focus on your own goals and projects.

5. Being toughened by the hard lessons in life, while allowing all of it to humble you instead of drag you down.

Being a Man had no set rules but those created by him. Live your life and remember to be successful.

Do have a fulfilled & pleasant day ahead.

3 simple tips for creating a more attractive online persona through Facebook

​Tip 1: Know who you are and have a clear message.

A profile is a collection of characteristics that people look at to gauge our personalities. Often times, people will get to know us better based on our status updates, photos and other media. Even though we’re all complex beings, people categorize us to make sense of the world.

Tip 2: Build yourself a strong credibility and take advantage of it.

In order to become more attractive to everyone on Facebook – the biggest social platform, we all need a strong credibility. You might wonder what’s it for? I tell you why a strong credibility can be that important.

Because without it, you may appear unreliable to audiences, and so it won’t be easy to get people’s attention and trust.

 Tip 3: Don’t Say Something, Show It.

If you choose to fill out the “About Me” section, here is the most important rule: You don’t need to tell us characteristics about who you are. If you’re funny, you’ll write funny posts and have funny photos. You won’t say “I’m really funny.”

All in all, when it comes to sculpting your profile, make sure that you send a clear message of how you want people to see you. As social media becomes more woven into our daily interactions, people will relate to us more on an online level. It’s important to make sure you always ask yourself: “Is what I’m posting consistent with the image I’m trying to create?”

So, those are some ways that I think will work best for making you more interesting Online. 

Hope it helps!?


When I was a young man, I wanted to change the world.

When I found I could not change the world, I tried to change my nation.
When I found I could not change the nation, I tried to change my town.
When I found I could not change the town, I tried to change my family.
Now, as an old man, I realize the only thing I can change is myself.
And suddenly I realize that if long ago I had changed myself, I could have made an impact on my family.
My family and I could have made an impact on our town.
Their impact could have changed the nation.
and I could indeed have changed the world.


The Samurai Code

After reading [Silent Honour by Danielle Steel] I’ve been fascinated by the  Japanese people and their culture.

One thing I’ve noticed about the Japanese is how thier behavior all seemed to be guided by some unwritten codes/rules not necessarily based on religion.

The theme of Honor, Respect and Politeness seems to be a reoccurring phenomenal among the Japanese. At a closer look at these qualities, you will agree with me that everybody need a dose of them as we go through the journey of Life.

Those observation above led me to make some research on Japanese cultures and beliefs. 

From the research, I learnt alot about thier cultures. For instance; it is frowned upon to show affections like kissing and hugging in public places but with thier reserved lifestyle, they still practice some Interesting night lifes in Karaoke, Maid cafe’s and Phachinko parlors 🙂

Another interesting observation is;  Saying ‘NO’ is very uncomfortable for the Japanese because they try to please as part of the codes of Life In Japanese Culture.I guess doing business with the Japanese will be interesting.

Like earlier stated, most Japanese cultures are really intriguing and fascinating.

 For example;while the Westerners and Africans love stuffing their faces with food till we are totally filled up , whereas the Japanese have long since realized that moderation leads to a longer, healthier life.

In Japan, a well-known teaching called Hara Hachi Bu instructs to eat until eighty percent full.

It is not a myth that a region of Okinawa, where caloric restriction has been practiced for over a hundred years, also has the world’s highest proportion of people who live to see a hundred years.(woah!)
Something that peeked my interest in all these is 

The Samurai or Bushido Code

Bushido code “way of the warrior”.

 The Bushido held restrictions on the Samurai, prohibiting them to do many things and to live a very honest life.  This is not only good for Samurai, but for everyone as it will make each who follows a truer person.

          There are seven virtues of the Bushido. 

1.  “Gi”-Integrity.  To do the right thing by yourself.  A Samurai must be smart in making choices and always chose what is good for the clan.  He will make the right choice even if left alone.  Practice Gi in everything you do.

    2.  “Yuuki”-Bravery and courage.  To show courage every moment of living, in danger or not.  

  3.  “Jin”- Kindness and compassion.  To show everyone kindness and show compassion for all regardless.  

    4.  “Rei”- Politeness.  Politeness is different in Japan, politeness is more than just being kind, its about caring about others, and some say it borders an almost love-like feeling.  

    5.  “Makoto”- Honesty.  Be true by the actions you show, and by the words you speak.  Follow the laws of the universe and you will become a honest person.  

    6.  “Meiyo”- To enjoy the honor.  A Samurai must earn honor and enjoy it if he is to satisfying the codes of the Bushido.

    7.  “Chuugi”- To be loyal.  To be trustful, loyal, and show these unconditionally to others.

You will agree with me that these are knowledge that when applied in your own life it makes living more pleasant to us and those around us.
  If you need more knowledge about these codes, You can grab a book on the Bushido called Bushido, The Soul of Japan written by Inazo Nitobe. It was read by Theodore Roosevelt and John F. Kennedy.

The Cool Oldies

As the years fly by, lots of things changes. Latest inventions turned vintage, what’s in Vouge at a particular point in time became Archaic with the passage of time.

On the contrary, somethings never change with time but only gets better. 
Personally, I love music made back in the 90’s to most of the new mainstream music of today.Also, clothing items like leather boots & Jeans appear to be made of higher quality back in the days.

This phenomenon can also be attributed to humans too. Some experts say that the more years we clock, the easier the task of making tough decisions becomes. 
The more we live through and experience, the more understanding we are about other people’s issues.

To conclude, Old doesn’t necessarily means Oudated but  a Change in perspective.
