THE TEN MILLION NAIRA QUESTION… you owe me,lol.


It’s Saturday. You wake up and it’s 11am… You
are heading to the kitchen to make a cup of coffee.

You have only one and a half days to rest before
returning to school on Monday. But you are
happy because it’s finally Saturday. You have
one and a half day of relaxation before another
Tiring and exhausting week so you take
your coffee and sit on your matress.
You turn on the laptop and watch some movies,
then you order bread with beans(just like me,lol)from the
local fast food and start scrolling your Facebook
timeline as you eat and watch movie.
The afternoon you go to a colleagues house to
watch football and chat about the girls in your faculty.You come
back home and go to sleep.
This scenario is repeated on Sunday with a
minor change. Then it’s Monday again… aww, you
have to wake up at 5am, go to a place that you
hate and spend half of your day there.

But What’s Your Purpose?
If you felt that the above story relates to you
then you lack purpose in your life. You hate
what you do but you continue the same way of
living even if it’s destroying your soul day after
day.

So why do you keep doing it?

• Because of obligation.
You have a family to feed and no other way to
make ends meet. You need to work at a
disgusting job that makes you sick of yourself.

• Because you are afraid to follow your own
dreams .
You can’t stand the criticism of taking your own
path in life. So you force yourself to take a
predetermined road that others set up for you.
You follow the path that society tells you that
you have to follow if you want to be respectable
and successful.
You see other people acting the same way,
following the same path and you assume that
it’s acceptable as long as other people do it as.
They might now something right? However you
still can’t understand why you wake up feeling
sick of yourself.

• Maybe because you don’t even know what
you want.
How would it be possible to know what path is
right for you before you even passed your
twenties? Even if you feel that you know what
you want you fall into the second trap and give
it up because of fear.
Then you don’t have a fucking clue about what
you should do. So what’s the best option?
The option which guarantees the most
money. You sell your soul to the devil in
exchange for a huge paycheck. No, money is not
evil but you arbitrarily assume that more money
will make you look more “cool”.
Unfortunately, you end up being more miserable.

THE 10 MILLON NAIRA QUESTION YOU SHOULD KNOW !!

Before I tell you the 10 million naira question
you have to understand why it’s important to
have a mission in your life.
Without a mission, you are a nobody. You have
no reason to improve yourself
because you simply exist . You just walk your life
like a robot which doesn’t take its own
decisions. A robot programmed to act in a
certain way.
If you are breathing it doesn’t mean that you
are really alive. You have to discover your
purpose if you want to give your life a
meaning.

Ask yourself: Is that really what I want in my
life?
No, it’s not that question. The answer in the
question above could be a disgusting lie to
yourself.
But let me ask you something else.
Forget your financial insecurities. Let’s assume
that you have 10 million naira in the bank.

What would you do then?
Check out some possible options:
• You would spend the next year in a beach in banana island.
• You would buy a new house, car and fulfill your
materialistic needs.
• You would do nothing for a year except
sleeping, spending and partying.
• All the above.

But what would come after that? What would
you do after an extended period of rest,
partying, shopping and traveling?

You might think that you could never get bored
if you had all these riches. That’s a lie. You
would get bored, 100%.
Why do you think so many rich people are
miserable? Most of these rich miserable people
are the ones who have inherited their huge
fortunes.
They don’t have a purpose, just paper to spend.
When you don’t have a purpose you feel empty.
Sure, it might be fan for a while but after 1-2
years (or less) you would get sick of your own
life. You would feel the same misery with an
average man working on an average job even if
you have all these riches.
The fact is that almost everything like going to
school, college or working is done because we
want to make money.
As a result, we get compromised with doing
things we don’t love. Things that make us sick,
like working on a soul-crushing job or trying to
get a degree in a field that we aren’t even
interested in.
But you do it because you have to survive. You
give up on your dreams because you have to
survive and make ends meet.
But what would you do if you didn’t care about
money at all? What would you do if you had 10
millions in the bank?
Beyond spending, sleeping and partying you would
have to find something that could fulfill you. You
would find your passion and you could have all
the money you need to support you to fully
commit to your dream.
You would be FREE to live your life and follow
your passion.
What would you do if you had 10 million in the
bank? If you never had to care about money
anymore?
Would you do X? Then X is what you HAVE to do
in your life if you want to be truly happy.
X is your life’s purpose!
Only when you remove the money insecurity,
you can truly listen to your heart. You can
discover your mission, what really matters for
you.
If you are not sure about the path you are
following in your life then ask yourself: “would I
follow the same path if I had 10 millions in the
bank?”
If the answer is YES then keep doing what you
are doing. Otherwise stop it right now or you
will regret it in the future. Repressed emotions
will be too much for you to handle, they will beat
you to the ground.
Stop what you are doing right now, no matter
the consequences, and start following X.
Because X is your purpose, X is your mission.
Without X you will never be completely fulfilled.
You will never be free, you will be just another
cog in the system’s wheel, a robot programmed
to wake up the same time every day doing
nothing more than simply existing.

This article might seem harsh and nailing but, once in a while; we should be sincere to one another…
MANY OF US ARE VICTIMS!!

HE Believed in Himself… … Henry Ford


Here is another man whom I respect a lot for His courage and determination in Himself! He knew he could do what no one could imagine, and he became a Success story !

ford-pic1 Henry ford with has first car.

FORD’S EARLY YEARS:

The oldest of six children, Henry Ford was born on July 30, 1863, on a
prosperous farm near Dearborn, Michigan.
He attended school until the age of fifteen, at which time he developed a dislike of farm life and a
fascination for machinery. He had little interest in school and was a poor
student. He never learned to spell or to read well. Ford would write using
only the simplest of sentences. He instead preferred to work with
mechanical objects, particularly watches. He repaired his first watch when
he was thirteen years old, and would continue to repair watches for
enjoyment throughout his life. Although he did not like working on the
farm, he did learn that there was great value in working hard and being
responsible..
Ford’s father wanted him to be a farmer and offered him forty acres of
timberland, provided he give up machinery. Ford accepted the proposal,
then built a first-class machinist’s workshop on the property. His father
was disappointed, but Ford did use the two years on the farm to win a
bride, Clara Bryant.

FORD’S FRIST CAR:
Ford began to spend more and more time in Detroit working for the
Edison Illuminating Company, which later became the Detroit Edison
Company. By 1891 he had left the farm permanently. Four years later he
became chief engineer. While at the Edison Illuminating Company he met
Thomas A. Edison (1847–1931), who eventually became one of his closest
friends.
Ford devoted his spare time to building an automobile with an internal
combustion engine, a type of engine in which a combination of fuel and
air is burned inside of the engine to produce mechanical energy to perform
useful work. His first car, finished in 1896, followed the attempts, some
successful, of many other innovators. His was a small car driven by a two-
cylinder, four-cycle motor and by far the lightest (500 pounds) of the early
American vehicles. The car was mounted on bicycle wheels and had no
reverse gear.
In 1899 the Detroit Edison Company forced Ford to choose between
automobiles and his job. Ford chose cars and that year formed the Detroit
Automobile Company, which collapsed after he disagreed with his
financial backers. His next venture was the unsuccessful Henry Ford
Automobile Company. Ford did gain some status through the building of
racing cars, which resulted in the “999,” driven by the famous Barney
Oldfield (1878–1946).

FORDS FIRST COMPANY:

By this time Ford had conceived the idea of a low-priced car for the
masses, but this notion flew in the face of popular thought, which
considered cars as only for the rich. After the “999” victories, Alex Y.
Malcomson, a Detroit coal dealer, offered to aid Ford in a new company.

Ford also defeated the Selden patent (the legal rights given to a company
or person for the sole use, sale, or production of an item for a limited
period of time), which had been granted on a “road engine” in 1895.
Rather than challenge the patent’s legal soundness, manufacturers secured
a license to produce engines. When Ford was denied such a license, he
fought back; after eight years of legal action, the courts decided the patent
was valid but not violated. The case gave the Ford Company valuable
publicity, with Ford cast as the underdog, but by the time the issue was
settled, the situation had been reversed.
New principles
In 1909 Ford made the important decision to manufacture only one type of
car—the Model T, or the ” Tin Lizzie.” By now he firmly controlled the
company, having bought out Malcomson. The Model T was durable, easy
to operate, and economical; it sold for $850 and came in one color—black.
Within four years Ford was producing over forty thousand cars per year.

In the early 1920s the company continued its rapid growth, at one point
producing 60 percent of the total United States output. But problems
began to arise. Ford was an inflexible man and continued to rely on the
Model T, even as public tastes shifted. By the middle of the decade Ford
had lost his dominant position to the General Motors (GM) company. He
finally saw his error and in 1927 stopped production of the Model T.
However, since the new Model A was not produced for eighteen months,
there was a good deal of unemployment among Ford workers. The new car
still did not permanently overtake the GM competition, Chevrolet, and
Ford remained second.

FINAL YEARS

Ford’s last years were frustrating. He never accepted the changes brought
about by the Great Depression (a period in the 1930s marked by severe
economic hardship) and the 1930s New Deal, President Franklin D.
Roosevelt’s (1882–1945) plan to help the United States recover from the
Great Depression. He fell under the spell of Harry Bennett, a notorious
figure with connections to organized crime, who, as head of Ford’s
security department, influenced every phase of company operations and
created friction between Ford and his son Edsel. For various reasons Ford,
alone in his industry, refused to cooperate with the National Recovery
Administration, a 1930s government agency that prepared and oversaw
codes of fair competition for businesses and industries. He did not like
labor unions, refused to recognize the United Automobile Workers
(UAW), and brutally restricted their attempts to organize the workers of
his company.
Ford engaged in some philanthropic or charitable activity, such as the
Henry Ford Hospital in Detroit. The original purpose of the Ford
Foundation, established in 1936 and now one of the world’s largest
foundations, was to avoid estate taxes. Ford’s greatest philanthropic
accomplishment was the Ford Museum and Greenfield Village in
Dearborn, Michigan.
A stroke in 1938 slowed Ford, but he did not trust Edsel and so continued
to exercise control of his company. During World War II (1939–45; a war
fought between the Axis: Germany, Italy, and Japan—and the Allies:
England, France, the Soviet Union, and the United States), Ford at first
made pacifist, or peace-minded, statements, but changed his mind and
contributed greatly to the war effort. Ford’s grandson, Henry Ford II, took
over the company after the war. Henry Ford died on April 7, 1947, in
Dearborn.
