A Ted Talk Review: The Gift of Blindness By Cobhams Asuquo

I recently watched a Ted talk by Cobhams Asuquo. He spoke about the gift of blindness.
Here are some of the things I learnt from his Ted talk.

1. Do not excuse failure for any reason on any account.
2. Failure will come the same way it comes; we have to see to it that it goes.
3. Excusing failure by blaming it on a systematic flaw, we miss the opportunity to scale through the seemingly insurmountable obstacles to elevate ourselves and elevate others.
4. Learn to trust even for no reason. Trust has no expiration date.
5. Sight sometimes is a distraction. On your way to your destination what you see can be a big distraction.
6. Learn to be blind not literally in order to be focused.

Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie TED Talk

“A man who would be intimidated by me is the kind of man I’d have no interest in”-Chimamanda Adichie

The best TED talk ever.

Our culture is so unfair to women.
Why are African Men intimidated by successful African women?
African Men want to marry virgins but they are not virgins.
Why can’t a woman shine with her husband without her husband feeling disrespected if she outshines him?
