Today in response to the endless and countless questions I get on social media as regards my blueprint to always seemingly always forging ahead to new heights, I share these below with you!

Today most of them, thanks to social media info. from old rediscovered classmates, have either been shot dead during armed robbery, late or wherabouts unknown! Imagine if I had said yes to them then?
Today is motivational day and I share this Denzel Washington video with you. If you value my opinion, then watch this and relate to it no matter what field you belong.
Yesterday I was fortunate to watch and listen to Arnold Schwarzenegger give a speech at the Paris climate summit. I was so touched and could relate to every word I felt he was reading out most of the guidelines I have tried to follow all my life.
I have attached below a similar motivational speech from Arnold! It is worth listening till the end.
