Rags (2012)

So I picked this movie as the first I'll write about on this label. I've watched lot of movies, deleted some, but this is one of those I find it difficult to delete. I just have to delete some others to create space for some more movies I want to watch.. This is one of the movies I'll recommend if you are looking for one to give you some motivation.
Rags is a musical film, starring a number of characters, two of which are most outstanding. Charlie Prince (Max Schneider) and Kadee Worth (Keke Palmer) both got musical talents, but of different financial backgrounds.

Charlie, who had lost his mum and was from the lower financial background, had great passion for his talent and always believed he will be someone great one day. He kept up his faith, even with his discouraging step dad and step brothers. Anyway, he got that little family (Diego and Martha) which kinda filled a gap and gave him some inspiration. He had his fears, sometimes doubted himself…

If You Believe in Yourself, You will give Yourself the Best!

Accepting Vulnerability

Have you ever felt stuck and alone about a situation with regards to your life, career, finances, etcetera; and had absolutely no clue how to get out of it?If you have ever felt this way, or still do – you’re not alone on this journey and the answer is not as difficult as you might think.I have realized that one of the major challenges we face during this phase is not the unavailability of solution – but rather our inability to share our concerns with others.We need to understand that whenever we find ourselves in difficult or challenging situations – we don’t have to get through it alone and should be brave enough to ask for help.Personally, I grew up thinking I had to figure everything out as my upbringing exposed me to making decisions and doing things alone. This helped me in many ways, however, I later realized that it conditioned me to think I needed to know all the answers.I guess this was making me a perfectionist in a way – always wanting to figure things out by myself.Even a…

You will receive when You Start giving out

Just the way the laws of gravity remains true and universal, so is the law of money. It is the same and can be reproducible anywhere.You will never receive if you don't give. Every great person have, and is giving out something.Some great speakers spoke for free, some great writers wrote for free, some great preachers preached for free. Don't expect anything if you have not started giving something. By: Raphael Donanu

You have a Brain, Young people

Young people listen...You may not have the best school or opportunities like me, but at least you have something like Nigeria at the moment which is a shithole. Yet, we can make this shithole a huge vast intellectual brain reserve. The metaphor of the shithole is that it is a conduit a passage for remnant. When I was a kid, I saw the Germans convert shit to energy for cooking and fertiliser.You have a brain young people, use it. Young Nigerians, we do not have a future in our present state. Let us start creating one. The beautiful thing is that we have all the resources we ever need.. to start with... And that is enough problem, yeah and as long as there are problems, huge problems in Nigeria, then the future is bright, as we take responsibility.This century, people do not want to know whose muscle is stronger, but whose brain is smarter, active. We are in the age of the brain revolution. By: Okwudiri Anasiudu

Think as if there is no box

A small businessman once owed a large sum of money to an old and unattractive loan-shark that just so happened to fancy the business man’s daughter.After many years of the business man's failure to pay back, the loan-shark then decided to offer him a deal that would completely wipe out the debt but with a catch that he could marry his daughter. Needless to say, this proposal was met with disgust by the businessman and sadness by his daughter.So, the loan-shark devised a means to get the business man play along by telling him he would place two pebbles in a bag, one white and one black. And if his daughter reaches into the bag and pick out a black pebble, the debt would be wiped and he would marry her. But if she picks white, the debt would also be wiped, but the daughter wouldn't have to marry him.Standing on a pebble strewn path in the business man’s garden, the loan-shark bent over and picked up two pebbles. Whilst he was picking them up, the daughter noticed that he’d picke…

They cannot harm You, only You can!

People who think you'll not amount to anything in life aren't the problem. The problem begins the moment you allow their opinion into your head.People who think you are proud, disobedient, arrogant or useless aren't the problem. The problem starts when you start bothering yourself about their misconceptions.You'll begin to live the moment you allow people to be entitled to their opinions while you keep pursuing your dreams. Remember, no soothsayer, no matter how highly placed, can determine your future. It's in your hands! By: Olusola Opeyemi

The Room for Improvement

The world hasn't ceased to evolve. The adversaries and competitors you are fighting are more intelligent than they were yesterday. They have been learning just as you have too. Even when you refused to learn or grow, they did not relent. When you took days off at the weekend, they didn't.This calls for continuous betterment. The largest room in the world is the room for improvement.Isaac Newton said, "What we know is a drop but what we don't know is an ocean."More so, remember that you can't solve today's problems with yesterday's knowledge.

Relationship Quotes for this Week

Success in marriage is much more than a matter of finding the right person; it is also a matter of being the right person (Leland Foster Wood)Cooperativeeness in conversation is achieved when you show that you consider the other person's ideas and feelings as important as your own. Starting your conversation by giving the other person the purpose or direction of your conversation, governing what you say by what you would want to hear if you were the listener, and accepting his or her viewpoint will encourage the listener to have an open mind to your ideas (Gerald S. Nirenberg)The average person can be led readily if you have his or her respect and if you show that you respect that person for some kind of ability (Samuel Vauclain)The first thing to learn in intercourse with others is non interference with their own peculiar ways of being happy, provided those ways do not assume to interfere by violence with ours (Henry James)Every man I meet is my superior in some way.

You have to be the Complement of Whom You Desire

You may come across a good person, a sincere lover, who's interested in you, but you're not ready at that moment, and end up losing him to someone else who's ready.. You're not ready because of the negative configuration that your past relationship(s) has created for your mind and it really shows in your attitude (I personally always detect it no matter how much you try to hide it). You have to take responsibility for the outcomes of your past relationships. And by this, you take POSITIVE actions not to be a victim of such again. Look into yourself critically, you'll see the wrong choices you made that led to the failed relationship(s). Learn from it, and make a wiser choice when someone comes seeking your attention. Understand what you NEED (pay less attention to your wants) and be the person that will complement the person you need by developing yourself and working on your limitations gradually. If you'll say that it's difficult to know who's true, I…

When a Lady is Loved properly

When a woman is loved properly, all the joy that was stolen from her will return. The giant within her will awaken. She will find everything she thought was lost. The missing pieces of her life will suddenly appear. All the pain she has been through will make sense to her. She will finally be free to create the magic that was always in her heart. Her fire will burn brighter than the sun and all those who wrote her off will stare in astonishment from afar. By: Uchenna Ilo

Your Soul Knows Better

Some people will come into your life looking as if they are the real deal. Their attributes will tick all the right boxes in your checklist. Your relationship will start with such an intensity that you will believe they were sent from heaven. From this high tension love, your relationship immediately descends to the lows of depression, quarreling and anger. The fluctuations are more dizzying than roller-coaster rides. Gradually, they will begin to show their true colors and you will have to decide whether to leave or stay and try to fix them. If you don't open your inner eyes, you will fall into the oldest trap of the flesh. Your flesh desires them but your soul knows better. Remember all your sufferings and let the wisdom of pain be your guide. All that glitters is not gold and there is no substitute for inner peace. If you remain humble and kind, one day someone will appear from nowhere in the most unusual of circumstances when you least expect it to return all the love you lost…

I am Over You

Samuel was done playing games. He finally proposed. He knew she would say Yes. She would. She loved him too much. She had asked him severally, jokingly, when he would ask her out.She had turned down many suitors for his sake. She loved even the ground he walked on, but he just wasn't interested in her. He was actually but he wanted to sow his wild oats. He thought she was going to be around forever.Now he is ready. He is tired of the games and wanted to settle down.Her reply came like a gunshot.. You know that thing that goes skrrrrrrrrri, ehen, you don't know, the thing went skrrrrrrrrri laidat,"I am no longer interested in a Relationship with you, Sam. Truth be told, I have found somebody that loves me, and I love him too. I'm over you".The look on his face could have rivaled that of Medusa the gorgon. He never thought that could happen. He never expected that Jane would one day overcome her feelings for him. He had always ignored her, because she loved him.She…

Show Love by your Words and Actions

It's easy to say we are loving when everything seems otherwise okay. But the depth of our love for others becomes tested when the conditions around us does not warrant our loving them at all. Showing love here is really difficult and very straining.If you can still love when you're hurt, betrayed, angered, irritated or falsely accused by others, then we can know that you truly love.So let's stop professing love to people like it's really deep in us. Let's show it by our words and actions in times when we're tempted to hate them. Only God can help us truly love people.By: Abeyi Kingsley Onoriode

Its a Love and Relationship Something

Hello Somebody! I believe you're doing great? And hope the week has been a positive one too?Just wanna drop these quotes for you. It's a Love and Relationship Something. You'll definitely find them helpful. Share with your friends too, and help bless a soul. It's a month of Love, so we've gotta keep the Love alive!Enjoy!-----Relationships are mysterious. We doubt the positive qualities in others, seldom the negative. You will say to your partner: do you really love me? Are you sure you love me? You will ask this a dozen times and drive the person nuts. But you never ask: are you really mad at me? Are you sure you’re angry? When someone is angry, you don’t doubt it for a moment. Yet the reverse should be true. We should doubt the negative in life, and have faith in the positive.– Christopher Pike-----When we're incomplete, we're always searching for somebody to complete us. When, after a few years or a few months of a relationship, we find that we're sti…

Real Faith is Concrete and Evidential

Our faith as Christians is not misguided or misdirected, God did not ask us to have faith on something that does not work or that is nonexistent. Everything we believe God for already is and have been proven to be reproducible. People have believed for the same things you believe God for and have or are getting them continually.The problem is we and not the word of God. Do this anytime you feel your faith is tested. Walk randomly into your church and ask people randomly if they have ever believed God for what you are believing and have received.The results have always been and will continue. Our faith is not guess work, it is not uncertain, it is not speculation, it is not luck or chance. We believe God for what already is, have been and is been received continually by others.Real faith is concrete, it is evidential, tangible and reproducible anywhere. It works in all climes.

The Attitude Of A Champion

You are not a Champion because you wore a bespoke attire. Champions are not advertised on Facebook. You do not exaggerate it. A Champion is a Champ because of an attitude. A winning attitude.Champions have great character. Champions are disciplined people. Champions are people with honour. Champions do not want to succeed by bringing others down. Champions are team players. Champions do not glory in themselves. Champions are not satisfied with where they are at the moment. Champions may be local but think globally, or they may be global but appropriate their ideas to fit their local environment. It is sad our society fails to honour the true Champions, but that is changing.I celebrate my Champions today. By: Okwudiri Anasiudu


3rd of May 2012, I reached a milestone age but with lots of dashed hopes and expectations that made me tag that year the darkest moment of my life.And as usual, deep emotions provoke my poetry prowess, so I penned down this poem I titled – 'from BITTER to BETTER':Your deepest fear is often not the thickness of your darkness;
Your deespest fear is often the light in you that you fail to harness!
Your biggest worry is not really about your capacity to live in pleasure;
Your biggest worry is really about your capacity that's beyond measure!
What stresses you is less of what you don't have control over;
What stresses you is more of what you can control but fail to discover!
What drains you is less of the heaviness of what you bear on your head;
What drains you is more of your heart's heaviness when hope is dead!Show me a man that is totally free of today's challenging marketplace;
And I'll show you a man denied the chance of mastering his space!
Show me a man c…

Life is too short to be limited!

If you are the average of the 5 people you spend your time with the most, who will you be?You can't roll with chicken and expect to fly like a eagle.
You can't be a chicken and expect to roam with eagles.In all you do, seek constant improvement and never blackmail yourself emotionally to stay with people who don't have your kind of vision.We only have one life to live and the only way to influence what people will say after we are gone is to live a life in sync with expectations.Life is too short to be limited.

What are you going to do for Someone else's Freedom?

I am skinny and I don't like cold. My lips quiver, my speech seizes, my nose shoots out mucus with every sneeze and I think my metabolism stops too, except my kidneys. It starts to produce urine like a liquor factory. The toilet must be within few paces away.Where there's no toilet, I can't handle myself when you put me in a cool room. My feet grow numb, I may have to postpone my presence at a meeting or a discussion to use the bath or the bush.I can cope with no fan or air conditioner all year long. Just give me a damn sweater and a wooly duvet, I'll be good for all seasons!But there is another type of cold I've grown used to. It's the place my unconventional ideas push me when I ever open my mouth. It's a damn cold feeling to be ostracised by people who once used to give you a warm hallelujah when you said something they agreed with.Now, no chants of acceptance, no chorus of praise, no little short speeches telling you how wonderful you are. You are a par…

You will Succeed

It doesn't matter what your family background is, it doesn't matter how much you have or not, it doesn't matter who you know or not, only you and you alone matter.Use your mind and change your perception about yourself for the better. You can Succeed if you come to grasp with the fact that your Happiness and Success is solely your business and in your hands.

Bring The Message to Life

There is a particular message that can only be transmitted through you because it is uniquely encoded within your soul. Some people might recognize your potential but what they see is just a glimpse or at best is just the surface of the vast depth of potential in you. You're the only one who knows the depths of your desire and you are the only one creating roadblocks for yourself. Bring that message to life. Some people's lives depend on it. Your fear and procrastination is not only causing you pain but it is affecting so many people who would benefit from your wisdom.Procrastination is a selfish endeavor.Somebody somewhere is waiting for those kind words you have to say. Somebody somewhere is waiting to be inspired by your light. Someone could be lying on a hospital bed somewhere and could receive revival through your message. You owe it to humanity to express that message right now. It doesn't belong to you. You're just a vessel. By: Uchenna Ilo

What do you have in your hands?

Have you ever given someone a gift that they don’t care about or won’t use? You must think they are ungrateful, especially if it's a gift that's expensive and important to the service of others.
Do you think God could "feel" the same way about the talents he has endowed you with?
Do you think you could have been depriving someone out there the privilege of being blessed by your service to humanity?
If you're culpable; you've probably ignored your talent — your God given gift to humanity.
To ignore your talent, is to ignore God in your life and deprive many others the gift of God in you. He made us that way — He has equiped us for what we are suited for with a great calling to serve humanity.
It is never too late to discover what talents you have and develop them. The development of your talent is too important to be left to chance. Invest time, energy, and money to fan your talent into raging flame that transforms the world.
Play that piece, sing and the wor…
