Help! Lazy Blogger!

Hello beautiful people…

I’ve really missed blogging… Truth is: I’ve been lazy to type out my thoughts. I need a little motivation here and there especially from you.

Can’t believe I’ve also lost touch with WordPress tools…searching for the icon for tagging posts, lol (funny).

Yes! I’ve finally figured it out!

Motivation to resurrect my blogging passion is all I need right now…

How To Have A Stress-free Day

A lecturer when explaining stress management to an audience, raised a glass of water and asked “How heavy is this glass of water?” Answers called out ranged from 20g to 500g. The lecturer replied, “The absolute weight doesn’t matter. It depends on how long you try to hold it.

If I hold it for a minute, that’s not a problem. If I hold it for an hour, I’ll have an ache in my right arm. If I hold it for a day, you’ll have to call an ambulance.
In each case, it’s the same weight, but the longer I hold it, the heavier it becomes. He continued, And that’s the way it is with stress management.

If we carry our burdens all the time, sooner or later, as the burden becomes increasingly heavy, we won’t be
able to carry on. As with the glass of water, you have to put it down for a
while and rest before holding it again.
When we’re refreshed, we can carry on with the burden.

So, before you return home tonight, put the burden of work down. Don’t carry it home. You can pick it up tomorrow.
Whatever burdens you’re carrying now, let them down for a moment if you can.
So, my friend, put down anything that may be a burden to you right now.
Don’t pick it up again until after you’ve rested a while.

Here are some great ways of dealing with the burdens of life:

Accept that some days you’re the pigeon, and some days you’re the statue.

Always keep your words soft and sweet,
just in case you have to eat them.
Always read stuff that will make you look good if you die in the middle of it.

Drive carefully. It’s not only cars that can be recalled by their maker.
If you can’t be kind, at least have the decency to be vague. If you lend someone $20 and never see that person again, it was probably worth it.
It may be that your sole purpose in life is simply be kind to others.

Never put both feet in your mouth at the same time, because then you won’t have a leg to stand on. Nobody cares if you can’t dance well. Just get up and dance. Since it’s the early worm that gets eaten by the bird, sleep late.

The second mouse gets the cheese.
When everything’s coming your way, you’re in the wrong lane.
Birthdays are good for you. The more you have, the longer you live. You may be only one person in the world, but you may also be the world to one person.

Some mistakes are too much fun to only make once. We could learn a lot from crayons… Some are sharp, some are pretty and some are dull. Some have weird names, and all are different colors, but they all have to live in the same box.

A truly happy person is one who can enjoy the scenery on a detour. Have an awesome day and know that someone has thought about you today…I did.

3 Obvious Signs That A Woman Is Attracted To You

Hello people!
Okay, at this point I’ve told you enough to make a dramatic change in your dating  life. But there’s always the question: “How can you really tell if a
woman is interested in you?”

Okay,  here are some ways that you can find out whether she’s interested or not…

Not All Women Are the Same

 So, first it’s important to understand that only about 1% of the general population (men and women alike) know what they  really want in a relationship. So you are always  going to be getting confusing signals from women, and some women will lose interest the moment that they realize they “have you where they want you.”

We’ll be talking more about how to keep this from happening in later posts. But it’s important that  you understand what you are up against. Other than  that, what you are about to discover is that most “interest indications” are communicated through a  woman’s body language.

Here are three things to look for…

1. Preening
This is when a woman does one of the following:  combs her hair back over her ear, rubs or scratches  herself on
the neck or collar bone, strokes her  wrists or the top of her hand or sometimes her cheek.
Body language experts tell us that these are the subconscious indications that a woman might be  attracted. Women don’t realize that they are doing  this, and that’s a good thing. This means that they  can’t hide their interest or fake it.
All you have to do is know what to look for.

 
2. Pupil Dilation
You might have heard that the eyes are the  windows of the soul, and this is certainly true  when it comes to reading a person’s genuine desires. This not just an enormous indicator interest,  it also tells you whether or not a woman is  aroused sexually. Of course, it’s
difficult to  see this in some women or in some settings.
But if you can get close enough (or if you have  really good eyes), pupil dilation almost always  guarantees that
you have a shot.

This physical reaction is so important when it  comes to determining a person’s interest that  marketing and
advertising experts have conducted  millions of dollars worth of research to determine which sounds, words,
symbols, colors and tastes  spur this response in people.

 
3. A Second Glance
This one is perfect if you are trying to  determine the interest of a woman you just saw  and have not yet met. Wait for her to look over  at you (she very likely will at least once).
When she does, don’t smile or wave or give any indication of interest. Just look back at her until she looks away (it will only be a few  seconds…at most).

If she looks away and towards the floor, or  even to the side, look down at your watch…wait 45  seconds, and
see if she looks back at you  before the 45 seconds is up. If she does, she’s  probably at least interested in being approached.

One word of caution, you MUST act fast once you  see these things! Remember, for us women, timing is  everything. If you miss your cue and don’t make a  move, her interest will be gone and you might  never get it back.

Of course, without the key ingredient of self confidence you are never going to be able to pull this off effectively, which is why you must check out ‘Supreme Self Confidence’

This is stuff that will change your life, not  just your dating success!

Now, for the next post, we’ll be changing  gears just a little bit and talking about how to  recover from a break up. The advice won’t be  what you expect I’m sure…but the results will  be out of this world.

You’ll see what I mean…
Chat to you soon.

Are You Afraid Of Women?

Hello beautiful, and welcome to my little world! You’ll agree with me that lots of guys are afraid of women because of the fear of rejection. There is an easy way to overcome your fears and develop concrete self-control with.

At first, it might seem ridiculous to think that a man could be afraid of a woman. What in the world could a woman possibly do to hurt you? You’ve probably even said it to yourself 100 times before: “I should just go talk to her…what do I have to lose?”

Yet, men all over the world and in every culture are terrified to approach a woman they’re attracted to. In fact, many men never overcome their intimidation when it comes to approaching women, and end up unsatisfied in their relationships because of it.

Well, if you want to avoid being a part of this unfortunate group, then you’ll want to pay close attention to this…

What is it That You’re Really Afraid of?
This is a common question men ask themselves when they’re confronting their anxiety about approaching a woman or even being themselves around her. Most of the time, men make the mistake of saying: “I have nothing to be afraid of, I should just talk to her.” Ah, but if you have nothing to be afraid of you probably wouldn’t be afraid right?

So how about we take a closer look at why you’re afraid? As you probably know, most fear is rooted in uncertainty and disappears once we identify the true source of that fear…

If you want to get over your fear of women, it’s important that you acknowledge the source of their power over you. That power is their ability to either validate or invalidate your position of a man of value, and believe
it or not this is a power that you willingly hand over to them.

You see, men have a different set of fears than women do. Women are more fearful of their safety and security
being threatened or of abandonment by the person who is supposed to love and to protect them. On the other hand, men’s fears are more ego centered, such as their fears of inadequacy… that they are “not good enough.”

If you doubt this to be true, just do a little research about the connection between male suicides and financial crisis. When a man feels that he is no longer able to provide for the survival of his family, he feels worthless.

This is completely normal, and it is based on the basic human need for survival and reproduction. But the problems arise when you start to base your value as a man on whether or not a woman is interested in you. Whether you are consciously aware of it or not, your primal survival instincts interpret that as the woman considering you to be adequate for the sake of survival and reproduction.

Now, most men (or people for that matter) aren’t self-aware enough to realize this is actually what’s actually happening. Instead, they just chalk it up to “approach anxiety,” and try to force themselves to it by sheer willpower.

As you might have guessed, this is about as effective as hurling a water balloon at an oncoming freight train. Instead, it’s important to realize that you actually do have something to lose in being rejected by a woman and that your fear is completely rational and natural.

Once you accept this, you’ll no longer have to fight the exhausting battle of ridding yourself of this fear. Then you’ll be ready to learn how to use that fear as fuel for positive action. But first, it’s time to be honest with yourself about how much fear runs your life when it comes to interactions with women…

Some Tough Questions to Start With

Okay, I know you’re probably anxious to know how you can use this information to produce positive actions. But first, you have to be honest with yourself by assessing just what your fear is keeping you from enjoying amazing interactions with women.

Here are a few questions to start with:

What’s your initial gut reaction when you see a beautiful woman?
Most of the time, your initial gut reaction will tell you more about yourself than hours of careful self-analysis. If you are not sure about the answer to this question, make a note to pay attention to how you respond psychologically to an attractive woman.

Do you suddenly feel small, timid and inferior?
Do you find yourself immediately correcting your posture, adjusting your body language or fidgeting with your hair or clothing? Do you start getting nervous if she looks your way or if you even think about approaching her? If so, these could all be signs that you are giving her opinion far too much weight when it comes to your value as a man.

What’s your initial reaction when you sense that a woman is “rejecting” you?
In asking yourself this question, it’s important to pay attention to the word “sense.” There are hundreds of ways that you (guys) can find yourselves thinking that a woman is rejecting you when she really is not. For example, if a woman looks away suddenly when she sees you looking at her, do you take that as a rejection? What if you say hello to her and all that she does is says hello back?
Do you assume that because she gave you a one word answer that she is not interested? Or what about if you ask a woman out and she denies your first invitation? Do you get a sick feeling in your stomach as if you had just been punched in the gut by a heavyweight boxer?

In spite of the fact that this is a natural reaction, it’s important to ask yourself how sensitive they really
are to rejection from a woman. And the most important question…

What is your response when a woman “tests” or disagrees with you?
Although most men are completely unaware of it, we women sometimes throw out tests in order to determine whether or not a man is qualified to date (more on this in a later post). Your ability to pass these tests is going to be completely dependent on your ability to deal with your own fear of inadequacy.
It is also the one factor which can make or break your dating life.

How can you know if you’re in danger of “failing” these tests? You start with the above question, and be as honest as possible with yourself. When a woman disagrees with you, or starts showing disapproval for something that you like, what is your initial response? Do you feel the need to “make it right” or to convince her of your point of view? Do you feel a certain sense of fear that she will lose interest in you if you don’t agree with her or at least validate her point of view? Do you
sometimes tolerate a woman being bratty, unreasonable or even disrespectful because you are afraid that she’ll leave you or lose interest?

If so, it’s important to be honest with yourself about whether or not you are afraid of women. If so, this is nothing to be ashamed of… a lot of guys suffer from this. The thing that would be shameful is to allow yourself to stay in this position of weakness and to end
up having to settle for less in regard to your dating life.

I wish you all the best!
I’d love to read about your testimonies. Write me at bmusings1@gmail.com

See you in the next post…

Imagine A World Without Social Media

Hello beautiful people, and welcome to my little world!
I was discussing with my friends yesterday on the forth coming general elections in Nigeria, it is not as though I’m a political analyst, but each one of us had divergent views about the leadership of this country Nigeria… One of the issues raised that struck me was that the bill for the ban on social media has been passed to the ‘house’ for second reading. Whaaaaat!

When I asked why, I got a chorus of “Do you know what people say on social media about the government?”… and I was like is it not a breach on the right to freedom of speech? I got yet another chorusing answer that people are abusing the right. Really?

Then, I began to ponder on this matter. In my thoughts, I recalled that the president (GEJ) when elected in 2011 specifically held a meeting or conference with the youths, and in that meeting he promised to constantly connect with the youths on social media… Of course, he fulfilled that promise in less than 5 months! The president is also on social media, in fact, he has a Facebook page to himself where he posts almost everyday.

Well, I seldom drop by his page just to read people’s reaction to his posts… Initially, he was receiving praise comments as through perceived ‘messiah’ to the nation; but as time went on, when things fell apart and the center couldn’t hold, would I say when the scales fell off the eyes of most persons, president GEJ’s page has been bombarded with venting comments from ‘angry youths’ youths about his style of leadership.

In my thoughts again, I began to wonder whether it was because of those ‘angry comments’ that he decided to place a ban on the use of social media… How will it play out? Will he ask all the social media bodies to delete Nigeria from their date bases? What would happen to the pictures saved-up there? What about the long distance relationship created? Oh again, how most companies survive…? How will I get people to read my blog post or will blogs also be banned? Too many questions to ask!

Mr. President, I want to use this medium to bring to your notice that this same social media have saved lives, it has been used to combat crimes, catch criminals, and so forth.
There are more important things to focus on which are the basics, and yes you promised to deliver them during your campaign in 2010. Sir, make a way to provide at least uninterrupted electrical power supply for just 24hrs for the populace…that’s one thing we yearn for. Thank you.

Now, imagine a world without social media!

MTN’s Adaptation Of The “777” Hit Song By Popular Afro Juju Artiste ~ Sina Peters

MTN’s adaptation of the “777” hit song by popular Afro Juju artiste, Sina Peters… was it meant to be a Delightful or Fraudulent Package?

A victim a retired d Air Force officer, described the development as “direct fraud and extortion.” He said despite his refusal to respond to any of the unsolicited text messages sent to his phone daily, which, he claimed, he always deleted, he was shocked to receive a message from MTN line 4100 notifying him of the deduction in respect of the phony deal. The message, he said, reads:

Y’ello, you have been charged N50.00 and your caller tunez service has been ex­tended to 2014-12-28 successfully. Reply TOP5 or #SongName to search tunez. For more info, text HELP to 4100.

He immediately sent another text in response, which reads:

Please stop this fraud. I did not subscribe to any callertunez service and you know it. Refund my credit immediately, or I will take steps to expose your fraud.

LOL…it’s an automated machine, they won’t get your reply.

The telecom company instantly replied in another message  which read:

Wrong command. Please reply help to 4100. To register reply REG. Text top5 to 4100 or dial 4100 for more tunez.

LMAO! Now, this is really annoying.

At this point, he became stuck with the payment for something he did not subscribe to after being compelled to tolerate the nuisance of all the useless text messages he did not solicit from the mobile network…

Another victim and student of a Polytechnic, described the act as cheap fraud. He said the telecommunications network deducted twice without his consent, saying:

My subscription has been renewed and therefore prolonged for another period of time. And I never requested for it. When I called the customer care the first time it happened I was told to cancel it. Yet, here I am again on the same matter. Will I cancel and then go back again, because I was told I must have requested for the caller tune again.

Well, most of these things happen a lot and it has gotten to the brim of our tolerance level!

Let’s assume that this kind of thing was done simultaneously to just one million of the teeming subscribers of MTN, then the company would have fraudulently raked in N50 million in just seconds without rendering any useful service to anyone.
My personal experiences are unaccountably annoying, I’m even sick and tired of being sick and tired… For crying out loud, how long will this continue to be!

Please this is a shout-out SOS/Memo to the National Communications Commission (NCC), to please intervene and stop this fraudulent acts of these phone service providers in Nigeria. Yes, there are many illiterate phone users who just believes that mobile phones are meant solely for the purpose of making and receiving calls… NCC please do not let these service providers in the country capitalize on this to extort money illegally from them.

Influence Of Divorce On Students Performance Academically

Hello and welcome to my little world!

Many people have their reasons for opting in and out of marriage. Many have cited reasons such as incompatible, poor communication, and lack of affection as well as differences in goal setting and achievement.

Marriage they say is a beautiful thing, but when love goes sour love turns to hate; and all things fall apart therefore, the center cannot hold.
Children are gifts from God and as such are innocent of any reason cited by parents for divorce.

Dear reader, my question now is, who do you think suffers most in a broken marriage?
Please take te poll. Thanks, and feel free to leave any comments in the comment section.
