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.

I love Ted talks. Please look out for more Ted talks reviews on my blog.
Thank you!

Kids having Kids..

I hate seeing kids suffer in the hands of unprepared parents.

ImageThings you should think about before having a child:

  1. Kids are expensive-if you are not financially ready, you need to reconsider.
  2. Kids need attention-when you have a newborn, you can’t sleep all through the night because you have to get up and the feed baby or change their diaper etc. Kids in general need a lot of attention.
  3.  Kids need selfless love- When you have a child, your life does a spin because life is no longer about you. As a parent you have to think about your child. Good parents think more about their children than themselves. If you still want to live for yourself, you need to wait.Kids are a gift from God. If you are not responsible* for yourself then you are not ready to be responsible for someone else.Having a child is a huge responsibility..please don’t put on your head if you are not ready.“You are not ready for something until you count the cost.”-Joshua Eze

    *Responsible meaning you have your own place, money and resources to take care of your child. You are not ready for a child, if you think your parents are responsible for raising your own child. THINK!

    Enjoy your youth.. Don’t complicate it!
