No to PHD

On May 20th 2016, all Cameroonians across the globe celebrated Cameroon’s National Unity, and I can’t help but reflect on the word UNITY.

I am appealing all Cameroonians to be united. Unity shouldn’t just be spoken but acted upon. It’s time for us to get pass the spoken words and take action.

I always question human nature when people are aware of what others are doing, but never fully show support. For instance, if my brother or friend starts a business, launches a product or service, I ought to be the first to support them. It should be our duty and responsibility as friends and family to support each other.

Human beings in general, and Cameroonians in particular need to abandon the PHD spirit we often possess. By PHD I am referring to ‘Pulling Him/Her down’. I consider it to be a very negative practice which ought to be abolished ASAP. Rather than being jealous, critical and envious, we ought to rejoice and celebrate with those who are creative and entrepreneurial.

I am a firm believer that there is space for everyone at the top but at distinct intervals. Most people want to quickly climb the ladder of success, but remember that you don’t have to pull others down to succeed.

I therefore urge every individual to actively support and help build others.

Life will be so much better if we appreciate each other. Once we appreciate, love, peace, joy and harmony will Blossom.
Have a blessed week.


The lifestyle of Giving

When you are reminded about giving two days in a role, then you know that giving has to become a lifestyle.
I attended a fundraiser on Saturday and a church service on Sunday in the course of which ‘giving’ was the focal point.

It’s important for us to give to others. What we have freely received, we should also be prone to freely give.

How often do we think about our lives?
Do we deserve what we have freely received?
If not for Gods grace upon our lives where would we be?

It’s therefore important for us to recognize that we don’t have to take our blessings and opportunities for granted. Gratefulness is important.

By being grateful we appreciate life and the blessings that come along.

We are blessed to be a blessing to others. Yesterday as I emceed a fundraising gala, I was moved by the generosity in the room. People willingly gave to support a good cause. Giving without regrets, but for the common goal of improving lives.

I urge you to give freely without any constraint. The Bible tells us in Acts 20:35 that “There is more blessing to give than to receive” so be blessed as you give to others.

As of today, I make ‘giving’ my lifestyle.

Have a blessed week!

Reflection #AtoZChallenge

It has now been a week since I completed the A to Z blogging challenge. It was indeed a tough and inspiring challenge. I use the word tough because I had to write a new post for 26 days in a role.

My motivation and zeal came from other participants. It was encouraging and challenging to see people contributing and sharing their blogs, knowledge and expertise all
over the world. I learned that knowledge is power and with the right knowledge, we could change the world.

Yes, we should all look forward to changing the world through our experience, community service and public service. For instance, we no longer ought to seek knowledge for our self interest, but rather for the public good. How can we use the knowledge and experience we have to make the world a better place?

The better place will eventually exist. I still believe in Utopia. There is hope because the desire for change lives in each one of us.

Therefore go forth and play your part.

A better place is what we all seek. I therefore call on each one to be part of the change.

Till next time!
