7 Steps On How To Turn Your Life Around 

There came a point in life were you seem not to have control over where your life is leading. You know you are headed the wrong direction but still blindly follow along because maybe you gave up on your self & have no idea how to turn things around. Yet you deeply desire to turn things around. My early life has been a maze, I did the same things every time & expected different results. As a result, I was poor, insignificant in society, disappointed my parents, my relationships sucked, even my own siblings disassociated with me, the list goes on. I was a person of no value, all I knew well how to do was talk rubbish, start trouble, never completed tasks, you name it. In short, I failed at everything I did. At the age of 17 years, I knew I had to get my name back from all the negativity & be restored to honor. I decided to turn my life around hence chose to first seek knowledge & wisdom. I discovered, “Men fall because of having a broken focus.” & also learnt that, “Men choose their habits & their habits choose their future.” There, I knew exactly what to start working on. Get focused & set habits that will lead me towards my purpose in life as you will see;    1. Know your self & what your going after. Set specific target. Like any of you, I thought I knew my self until after several psychological personality tests & consultations from my mentors & people around me. I discovered my weakness & potential. My talents & gifts paved a way for me to become a servant leader so I chose to focus on that from the word go. I built habits like, partiality, prudence, listening,…

How Failure Was My Best Guide for Success

Have you ever thought for just a second that life is a daily pressure? The thinks we want to achieve or have? The power & rights we seek to have that comes with responsibilities? It’s all pressure! But for any progress to happen, we must learn how to live under pressure. It is said, you will never progress from a comfort zone of your life unless you have attained the maximum level of success (which is rarely possible for many). I have had my share of success and failure in my life. But today, I want to briefly address the issue of rising up again from failure. A few years I embarked on a journey to run for the office of Member of Parliament representing the entire Eastern Uganda. With a successful 8 year leadership career and great track record, I had not planned for the possibility of failure. I gave the campaign everything I had, my resources, time, energy, reputation, and everything I had, it was a do or die situation for me we can say 😊. However, the inevitable happened, dynamics in the politics (party godfathers) were not in my favor! Losing the election left me with broken focus, bankrupt, heart broken, homeless, devastated, in one word, “Catastrophe.” To me, it was my end. My view of failure when everything is lost then was more like a pre-death experience, only worse that I had to live through the after effects of shame, mockery, condemnation, debts, poverty, hunger, you name it. This all I faced. Every single day I sunk deep and deep into destruction. One day, I heard Oprah say, “Failure is just life trying to move us to another direction.” These words sunk deep in, “…it’s not the end of me after all.” I said to my…

Why Everybody Should Fast At Least Four Times A Year basing on Health and Spirituality!

The first thing that pops in people’s heads when they hear the word, “FAST” is denial of ‘FOOD’ & ‘PRAYER’. Well, they are wrong and yet at the same time partly right. I would like to think fasting is simply, “Disciplining of the body subjecting it to your control against all that has controlled it.” Ironically speaking, fasting is the art of denying your body and self things that are pleasing to it or you. For example, food, drugs (ps. Alcohol is a drug too.), movies, friendships, fan and many more pleasurable things in our lives. We all have things we crave to do or have, in turn… the urge to have them creates a patten of receiving, having, using…. the cycle goes on. I call it habit. Habits are controling, some are good, others are bad. Sadly, the bad ones always tend to be huge downsides in our lives. Hence leaving us vulnerable and most likely out of control. If we don’t check our habits, desires and way of life, we put our lives in a danger of having an addiction. We never want our lives to depend on a particular  substance, thing or activity. We want to be free!! We want to be in control. And thats why fasting is important! With reference to my personal life, am a great personality and pleasurable person to be around. However, I was so used to the idea of being taken as a good person that I completely forgot to watch out for those cropping and growing interests in particular substances like food and sugars, things such as electronics, technology, money… and activities such as romance, sex, friendship & relationship making and so much more. Not to say that this things are bad, however… the love of such things blinds you to their…

I Personally Think People Need to Mind Their Own Business Unless Invited!

The last couple of months have been hard I must admit, having to deal with a new year filled with old staff splashed right back at you in the presence. Sometimes I feel, writing is the only place I feel I can fight again. I have a tough life and I have come to terms with it. Dealing with heart breaks, great debts, broken family, failing career, failing ambitions, held-up finances and above all broken relationships. A wise man once said, “Men fall because of Brocken focus!” but I chose to pick-up on the other side of the coin, “All men fall, but the great ones get back on their fit.” No matter how much hell fire am going or have gone through, I today want to still think I am a great man, powerful, brilliant, talented and above all… principled. Been sick and tired of people telling me the wrongs I have done. Judging my every step of the way. Its funny how many of them think they got me all figured out. Oh well, I feel sad for their little lives. Because, the thing is… they are just too afraid of taking bold steps and making a difference. I bet if they were in my shoes, they would not take 3 steadfast steps. We all have such in our lives, “mostly our ex’s!!”, competitors, friends! “Oh yes, Friends!!!” Funny how those you bring close choose to study you enough only to bring you down. Guess what, I dodged the bullet. As mean it may seem, I slum the door all over their faces. If you one of them… am glad you are reading this. Someone once told me, “Put your heart in all you do. Be real!!”. This is me being real. Never carry forward to your present…

Open Letter To Mobile Money Service Providers, Stake Holders & Users

By this time round, 10 years and more ago, we would all be at either the post office or the taxi park trying to send money to our loved ones in the village. If I remember correctly, it cost my Father 500ugx shillings for a Post office Stamp to send money from Kampala to Mbale in an envelop which took a week to reach and even sometimes lost along the way. During emergencies and urgent times, he always sent money through a Taxi at the cost of 5000ugx shillings with assurance of her getting the money only if she is at the Mbale taxi part or slated stage at the time. Note, at this time around phones where scarce. To pass a message to the village, one either had to travel or visit. At this point, we also had banks, but people did not really feel comfortable using them for many reasons which at a time required one to know how to write, have identification and so on, which wasn’t a strong pursuit for many. Farther more, it was expensive and intimidating for the local community to use. (Still is today for some people) Hence people resorted to the alternatives at the time. The introduction of MOBILE BANKING however, it has greatly improved the exchange and transfer of money from one place to another. Dropping costs on communication and accessories such as phones, airtime and much more encouraged many to buy phones. Two years ago alone, over 18 million sim cards were registered to Ugandans cutting across all networks. This is mostly in Sub-Saharan Africa, a region with the most Mobile Banking users in the entire Africa. Sending money to the village unlike before is at the comfort of the sender especially with wide spread Mobile Banking agents of the…

“Learning Is An Endless Process That Can Never Be Institutionalized”

“I No Longer Dispute The Fact that says, “Experience Is The Best Teacher.” it feels so great actually sharing with you! For the past three years right after my undergrad, I could not help my self but think of how I actually needed to do a Postgraduate Masters. In fact, I enrolled for one at my very undergrad university. But, I did not find what I wanted so I quit. All I wanted is skills that will guide my career path and purpose in life and school surely could not offer me that! I never believed in the common saying, “Experience is the best teacher…” until I painfully experienced it. I like terming it as a Life class. “Every single minute that passes has taught me that learning is an endless process that can never be institutionalized or paid for by cash alone but through many other ways.”  Here are some of the processes I went through in my bid to learn. Observation: Every thing you see has a meaning. There is that confusing theory I over heard one of my friends talk about, the abstract reality.” According to this theory, they question everything you see. What if what is see is not really what is present? What if what you do not see is actually there? Well, as insignificant as it sounds, this theory has taught me how to critically observe and try to explain, read or study what I see. In tern, I have come to learn a lot without even touching a thing. Through observation alone, I have learnt to cook really great food. Not to brag, but my food is really awesome.  Self Study-Reading And Tutorials: So after quitting my studies, i could not afford to pay for tuition for any short courses simply. As a result,…

34 Godly Principles of Starting Your Journey to a Successful Wealth Responsible Wellbeing #Business

If not every, then it’s most young people’s dream to become rich! “there, I said it… people fear doing that today.” We have created all sorts of moral citations especially as God fearing people, of how we need to suffer, how being wealthy is some sort of sin in away and where we cant explain it we say it’s blessing. “Hahaha…oh how we suffer in ignorance.” Not just you but me too here, I once lived in that kind of confusion.

Everything comes from the Bible. 3) If a murderer applies the law of sowing and reaping, it will work for him/her. 4) In terms of natural laws, the principal law is the law of gravity. 5) To overcome the law of gravity, the law of aerodynamics is put in motion. 6) You need money to advance the gospel.
