Understanding the Sign Language of the Universe

Everything is based on good communication. When you get it right, 99% of your problems are solved. Interpersonal relationships, good governance, and efficient teamwork stand on the tall shoulders of good communication, especially from the universe. The universe speaks one language – the sign language. It should also be your primary language if you want to succeed in establishing good relations.

One message can be passed across in many ways but received differently by people. The choice of words, the emphasis on means of communication, and its timeliness can drive your message home. The language of the universe – the sign language – delivers a message weightier than every other language. It is probably why it is the language of choice by the universe. It is expressed in two major ways: acceptance and rejection.

  1. Favor.

When you gain favor from the universe, you notice wide acceptance wherever you go. You stop struggling and all of a sudden people offer themselves to support your cause. You receive an email about your appointment to a new job, your business proposal sails through after stiff competition, and many projects, in general, get unstuck. This is proof enough that the universe has acknowledged your prayers and they are being fulfilled. Make the best out of it when such favor locates you.

  1. Rejection.

It will be an open secret when you experience rejection, especially from the universe. For a moment, everything will seem to work against you. All your efforts will be frustrated and you may give up if you are weak-hearted. rejection

Rejection is communication that you should accord your project or yourself the seriousness it deserves. Instead of fighting it, align your ambitions with how the universe directs you. What is your response to either of these communications? Unlearn any misguided opinions you may have on how the universe communicates.

The dangers of favor.

  1.       False sense of entitlement.

Any signs of acceptance may give you a false sense of entitlement. You may become bossy when you see people submitting to your cause. Their support to you does not mean you are the best. It is just your time to shine. Gracefully accept your place when the universe gives your ambitions a nod. In all its fairness, your turn has come to shine, and do not be entitled to it. Accept it with uttermost humility.

  1.     Overjoy can ruin your chances.

People can do a lot of crazy things in the heat of the moment. The joy of finally having a breakthrough after much struggle cannot be hidden. Be warned about how you will react to good news especially if it has not been forthcoming after a long time. You may be arrogant to the people who have stood with you because you think you will no longer need their support. The same people will preside over your downfall and nobody will be sorry for you.

  1.     Contentment.

It is dangerous to be content after hitting your targets courtesy of the universe’s hand in your favor. Remember that your success this time around is not because of your competence but the universe’s favor. Do not fall back or reduce your efforts in what you were doing. When your time of favor elapses, you will not catch up with the rest. There is a tendency of being comfortable in your success. This is what favor from the universe offers. Do not take up this offer no matter how tempting it may be.

The opportunities of rejection.

  1.       A second chance.

Nobody wants rejection. But there is a silver lining to it. It is a platform for a second chance. You can amend and improve on the plan that got you rejected. It will be irresistible the next time you present it to the same audience that initially rejected it. You retreat to a moment of self-reflection when rejected. If you still have the conviction of your plans, you can make a second stab and be successful after taking important lessons.  

  1.     A change of mind.

Rejection can turn out to be a blessing. Sometimes your plans are rejected because it is not the best for you at the moment. The universe is telling you that you need to relook into what you have. You could be on the wrong platform. If you planned to sail through as they were, you could not realize your full potential. The best favor that the universe can gift you at that time is rejection. Do not be bitter about it. Take it gracefully and appreciate divergent opinions. You might find a better idea altogether. happiness

  1.     An eye-opener.

Rejection is also an eye-opener. It is like a wake-up call that is highly unwelcome to most people. Do not hate yourself when rejected. You just have to turn to the other side that you have been blind to all along. Your breakthrough could be waiting for you. Consider opinions that you were initially reserved too. The universe could be guiding you to it.

Moving forward…

You need to calculate your next steps wisely after understanding the sign language of the universe broadly expressed through favor or rejection. Either way that you read the handwriting on the wall, do not take it as the final word. You can manage to turn things in your favor ONLY by obeying the laws of nature. The first rule of thumb is the law of attraction. This is a whole chapter that you need to look into.

Take a mental note about sign language from the universe – your position is NEVER guaranteed. It is a world of stiff competition and you should get out of your comfort zone. When the universe gives you a signal of acceptance, embrace it and seek to lengthen your stay there. When you are rejected, work towards entering the good books of the universe. Every position is earned. Do good and pursue your purpose. You will be rewarded handsomely for it. Understanding the sign language of the universe is one step closer to fulfilling your destiny.

Why you need blind faith (and how to get it)

The definition of faith may not be very clear. Much has been said about what faith is but living it remains a challenge many people are yet to overcome. Faith is unlimited trust in someone or something. It is a strong belief that you are ready to defend and contribute your time and resources towards it.

Faith has no boundaries. It is as deep as the pacific and wide as the heavens. You can do unimaginable things for faith’s sake. It remains the best choice you make in your eyes even when everyone around you has their doubts. Does faith have eyes? Can it see the reality of the matter or how desperately you believe in a cause? Well, faith has eyes and ears. It is living if you practice it correctly (there are rules of practice). However, some limitations block the manifestation of faith in your life. Some of these limitations are:

      Your sight.

The gift of sight is a blessing but it is the greatest obstacle of faith. The eyes of faith do not require physical vision. They are within you and can see beyond physical things. Such is the weight of faith. It requires you to be ‘blind’. Who does not love sight? We use it to watch our favorite shows, play games, behold the beauty of the universe, visualize how things look like, and many more. By the same sight, we see obstacles in our way. This impossible mentality brought by sight is the number one enemy of faith. It is a great limitation of believing that things will work out fine because what we see at the moment is the difficulty ahead.

    Your mind.

Your mind conceives a lot of things. It may work for faith or against it. Sadly, it mostly works against it because of sight as seen earlier on. Your mind is an asset that continually thinks about what is possible as told by all body senses. It automatically rejects dreams that do not conform to the standards it has set (unless trained otherwise). No wonder, most people of faith are looked down upon by the ‘rational’ ones. Faith can never make sense where the mind does not embrace it. The two can never co-exist harmoniously if the mind is unprepared.

    Your doubts.

It is normal to doubt illogical theories and dreams. But when it goes overboard, faith stops working. It has eyes and ears to recognize your doubts. It will never work for you because you are constantly opposing that it will work. You do not have to agree right away but allow faith some benefit of the doubt that it can work. You can have your doubts but it gets worse when other people contribute to them. It is like they are outing a rubber stamp in your mind that what faith is trying to make happen shall not succeed.

Overcoming these limitations requires that you have blind faith. The kind of faith that will be adamant on the possibility that it will work. Here is how you can develop blind faith:

      Use vision instead of sight.

Vision is for the long term while sight is short term. The visually impaired may lack sight but they can have vision. Something is seriously wrong when you do not have a vision of where you are heading. Your vision is what a compass is to a sea sailor. It gives direction when they are in the middle of the ocean. A sharp vision will see the prize at the end of the race and not the obstacles on the way.

    Focus on the bigger picture.

Your mind will tell you about here and now because it is what you can see at the moment. To develop blind faith, you need to focus on the end product. Look at how beautiful the end will be and let this inspire you to outgrow the thoughts of your mind. Not all thoughts are bad. It is just that some may mislead you to think about the possibilities at the moment and not the wonders that blind faith can bring into your life. Your vision is uninterrupted when you focus on the bigger picture. It is what fertilizer is to crops on the farm – constantly providing nutrients for growth. Likewise, the bigger picture feeds your faith.

    Be encouraged.

You need to listen to the voice of reason when you are in despair. This will build your faith more. Do not listen to those who are out there to discourage you and show you that it is not possible. They will sink even the little hope that was turning to faith. Be careful with whom you give attention. They are the ultimate faith builders or breakers.

A lot of power lies in blind faith. It will help you overcome a million hurdles your way. These are some of its benefits:

You manifest the law of attraction.

The law of attraction works on the principle of faith. You only attract what you think, speak, or feel. They are major players in manifesting your faith. Blind faith is necessary because it helps you develop the right attitude in manifesting the law of attraction.

You rise above challenges.

Challenges are part of the growing process. It is difficult to grow through them without faith – blind faith to be specific. Your focus shifts from the prevailing challenges to the prize at the end of the race. It is a powerful driving force that is unstoppable by challenges of any nature.

It clears any doubt you may have.

Faith and doubts can never mix. When you finally develop blind faith, it means that you have overcome all forms of doubts. You are empowered to try new things that will contribute to the success of your vision.

It empowers you to see only the positive side.

Positivity is impossible without faith. The list of benefits of positivity is endless. The major one is that it is the best gift for yourself. When you bag faith in your bucket list, you have a lot more rewards too.

It is high time you appreciated blind faith more and follow this guide to work towards achieving it. It will unlock the full potential of your vision.

Nature’s Way of Healing your Hurt

Is your heart hurt?

The genesis of hurt is a lengthy story. Everyone has their own version. Some are more emotional than others and they have left the hurt very bitter. Blames are thrown right, left, and center with the promise of revisiting the hurt in the name of revenge.

Well, nature has different news for you. She will only ‘make you whole again’ if you abide by her rules. First, you have to understand the origin of your hurt. Was your heart truly hurt or did you hurt yourself? Most people will definitely be defensive and claim that it was not their fault. 

Emotionally detach yourself from your hurt. This is a big win. Thereafter, take a step back and evaluate what really hurt you.

Causes of hurt.

  1. Rejection.

Who would not be hurt by rejection? Almost everyone would, except the emotionally numb ones. Rejection could damage your self-esteem and you start questioning what it is that you lack.

Imagine your people refusing to be associated with you. They treat you as an outcast and even treat strangers better than you. Ouch! You may not recover from it soon. Except only if you allow nature to heal you completely.

Do not take rejection so personally. Other people’s opinions about you will remain just that – opinions. Let it not affect you because it is not the truth. You know better. Can you imagine arguing with someone else that what you are holding is a cup, yet they insist it is a spoon?

Their perception of what you are holding to be a spoon will not change the reality that it is a cup. This is how you should view rejection. It will completely ruin you if you take every opinion into mind.

  1. Unmet expectations.

Unmet expectations from people you thought highly of could hurt you. You had put your hopes on them yet they fail you miserably. That was a bad investment. Sadly, some of the people you trusted completely do not even bother to explain why they failed you.

It is normal to have expectations. The only point you faulted is looking entirely up to someone else to fulfill your expectations. That is what will hurt.

Whenever you expect something from someone, give room for failure. It is not entirely a bad idea to entertain that possibility.

You will appreciate your expectations being met and still understand when they are not. This will make it not hurt that much.

  1. Discouragement.

Discouragement too hurts. It hurts when you try something severally and still do not succeed. Maybe what hurts most is that you failed yourself and have no one to blame. You will be discouraged and it may put off your spirit. healing your hurt

The good news is that failure does not spell doom to you. It is just another chance for you to learn how not to do something. You will definitely not repeat it next time and this will boost your chances of success.

It is almost impossible not to get hurt from expectations. You just need to pat yourself on the shoulder and move on. Nature will heal you from all hurt if you let her.

  1. Disease.

Sickness causes both physical and emotional hurt. Your body stops functioning normally yet you cannot help it. You seek medical help and hope the medication will help you recover.

Diseases have been part of human life for the longest time. Some have succumbed to it but many more have recovered from it and become stronger.

Take comfort in nature’s healing ability to make it all go away.

How can nature heal all your hurt? Even when you solely hurt yourself, mother nature will swiftly come to your rescue.

Nature’s compensation.

  1. Unmerited favor to heal rejection.

Favor is good things being skewed in your direction even when you least deserve it. The universe can conspire to favor you in due time.

Initially closed doors will open for you. The same people who wanted to do nothing with you will look for you upon realizing your worth. They will apologize and make it up to you.

There is no explanation as to how the universe channels such high traffic of favor your way. Do not rely on your strength, trust nature to compensate for your hurt.

  1. A second chance to heal unmet expectations.

Unmet expectations are not the end of it all. Nature offers a second chance for you to try again. Although other people may fail you, in her wisdom, nature will allow you to do it yourself.

Do not be in a hurry for a second attempt. If you do not wait for the right time to be gifted by nature, you may hurt yourself more than how it was the first time.

A second chance is a golden opportunity to wipe your tears of hurt. This is because you have learned one more way of how not to do what it is you were doing.

  1. An environment for meditation to heal your discouragement.

Discouraged people often withdraw from people. They want to spend time alone and cry their hearts out. The thought of recovering from their hurt is never in their diary, at least not for the moment.

Nature’s calm environment can silently offer you a shoulder to lean on. It gives you the peace that is lacking elsewhere. You can meditate on the good things you are planning and reminiscence your past achievements.

Meditation will help you overcome your current hurt from discouragement.

  1. Medicine to heal your sickness.

The best medicine comes from nature. Even modern medicines are made from indigenous herbs that are a gift from mother nature.

Ever since long before civilizations until these modern times, nature has continued to be the source of many medicines. She is looking out for our health.

There are many ways of dealing with hurt but nature’s path is the surest one. You just need to be patient and pay attention to her. You will soon forget it ever happened.

Reconnecting with your Purpose

What is your purpose?

Simply put in a few words, your purpose is to you what an engine is to a car. An engine is its heart. It powers the car to move from one place to another. Remove it and you will no longer have that beautiful car. It will remain a shell.

An engine can break down if it is not well serviced. It requires constant servicing and maintenance for it to function optimally. No matter how well you take care of the body of a car, it is useless if you neglect its engine.

After some time, the engine will start failing and eventually stop working altogether. Woe unto you if it happens when you are traveling. That is the high price you have to pay for neglecting to service your car.

You may have to pay a similar price or even higher if you do not pay attention to your purpose. Your life will lose direction once you lose your purpose. The only way to get back on track is by resuscitating it back to life. There are no two ways about it.


Reconnection means that there was once a connection. However, it got lost hence the need to connect once more. Reconnecting with your purpose is finding your way back to it.

There is a possibility you may not find your purpose at the junction where you left it.

It takes double effort to find something lost that you once possessed. The good news is that you will eventually find it if you follow these guidelines.

An incomplete circuit.

Treat reconnecting with your purpose with the urgency it deserves. A directionless life is a huge price to pay for staying in the dark.

When you enter a dark room, the first thing you do is to switch on the light. There is no way you will stay in the dark when you can light up the room by toggling the switch on.

It is easier when you know where the switch is placed. It is worse if you do not know where to find it. The switch in this case is your purpose. It is what will make it possible to light up your life once more.

Here is how you can locate the switch:

  1. The right motivation.

All you need to once more find your purpose is the right motivation. There is none better than the hardships of life. If you do not learn from what has befallen purposeless people, then you will do so the hard way.

The right motivation could take the form of painful experiences. Failing to meet your targets and client deadlines could hurt your sources of income. This can be a thorn in the flesh with bills to pay and other responsibilities to meet.

You need to find your purpose on time. Locating that switch of purpose is the key to enjoying the light. There is nothing that can replace purpose in your life. fuel your passion

  1. The right company.

The friends you keep can either condemn you to darkness or be the beam of light to illuminate your life with purpose. This is why you have to think twice about choosing your friends.

How many people do you know lost it all while being in the wrong company? Two blind people can never lead each other. The end is chaotic.

You can find your purpose by connecting with meaningful friends. They will induct you into their ways and their lifestyles will automatically be part of you. It takes iron to sharpen iron.

The life purposes of people complement each other. You will find yours next to your friends’.

  1. Good attitude.

A good attitude is a job half done. When seeking your purpose, do not do it unwillingly. Put all your effort into it and set out your heart for the same.

Be positive that although you may have initially lost your way, you will find it again. Have hope that you will find what you seek. It is darkest before dawn. Your breakthrough could come when you are almost giving up. Such optimism can attract the favor of the universe.

You can never be forced to do something for your own good. You will definitely invest in it and give it your best shot.

  1. Consistency.

This is what is lacking in most people. It is easier to start something new than it is to stay on course. Reconnecting with your purpose is not any different. Since it is something that you initially had, you may lack consistency in your efforts to find it again.

Do not tire from seeking the switch that will end your stay in darkness. You are not condemned to grapple in the dark for long. You will eventually find the switch.

Imagine giving up when you are almost hitting the jackpot. It’s regrettable, right?

  1. Diversification.

This is trying new practices but still along your purpose. Especially for someone who has experienced the power of purpose before, you can try other things along the same line until you reconnect with what you lost.

Your purpose could be dressed differently this time around but it will definitely feel the same great way as before. That is how you will know you have hit the jackpot.

The journey of reconnecting with your purpose is not an easy one. There will definitely be some challenges on the way. Their presence or absence is insignificant but how you handle them is.

Still, on the analogy of being in a dark room where you are supposed to turn the switch on, there are many factors to consider. Pride is the major one.

It gives a sense of false security. Your familiarity with the darkroom will make you relax in finding the switch to light up the room. You will end up complaining that it was just there and now you cannot find it.

Accord the reconnection with your purpose the seriousness it deserves. You will eventually find it if you also pay attention to the five factors discussed.

Mastering the Art of Friendship with the Universe

The genesis of friendships.

“We got along well from the first day we met” is a very common statement. Another one is “I could not imagine that we could be great friends.” You must have heard these two statements or many other similar ones. Is there truth in any?

Yes, there is much truth in them. The truth again is that many people do not pay attention to how they start friendships. This reveals a worrying trend that has taken root – hardly do people make deliberate friendships. Most of them are products of circumstances.

If human friendships are products of circumstances, how much so about the invisible universe? That is definitely a hill to climb. A steep one for that matter.

Well, here is a manual on how to nurture friendships:

  1. Identify a suitable ‘friend’ among strangers.

In a multitude of people, there cannot miss one or two whose purposes align with yours. If you disagree, it’s probably because you have not looked closely enough. It is not enough to watch from a distance and conclude there are none, make an effort to find your destiny mate.

It is difficult at the beginning until you observe their actions. Observations require time, patience, and keenness. Friendship with the universe follows a similar path. You need to pay attention to her every move. She is the only trustworthy friend you can make if you synchronize your purpose with her.

Friendship with the universe is a gem. But you first have to study her keenly before you take your friendship to the next level.

  1. Approach them and initiate a conversation.

Upon identifying a potential friend, the next step is to make a move. How will they know that they have charmed you if you do not express yourself? Be courageous and make that bold move.

Starting a conversation with a stranger feels awkward at the beginning. It almost feels like you are a nuisance. Keep your eyes on the bigger goal – the friendship.

Similarly, you need to do the same with the universe. Initiate a conversation with her. You can do this by taking care of nature. Showing, by your actions, your interest in taking care of her. Being nature’s caretaker is not dumb. She will reward you by accepting your friendship.

The universe is not a fellow human who speaks your language. You have to speak her language before she accepts you as a friend. This includes acts of kindness towards nature.

  1. Explore common interests.

This is the part of synching your purposes. Have you ever wondered why new friends are excited to talk about their interests? It is so because they want to know each other better. In their small talk, they end up revealing everything about themselves. It is quite normal.

Friendship with the universe takes the same path. She is loving like a mother who accommodates all her children. There is space for each one of them. You should explore all your interests fearlessly. Do not hold back any of your ambitions for anything.

Sports, leadership, education, and technology could be some of the areas your passion lies. The universe appreciates genuine interest in your ambitions. She is not for half-baked interests in ambitions.

Fact check – hesitancy is punished by low rewards and boldness is rewarded by fruitful efforts. Knowing how to build your friendship with the universe is the pinnacle of success.


  1. Do not withhold from a conversation.

Good friendships are built on proper communication. It is a give and take transaction with a common currency – communication. Any misunderstanding can be quickly resolved when friends talk. Silence only amplifies the problem.

The universe expects more from you as you do from her. You expect that she will crown your efforts with favorable results while she expects that you will be consistent and not withhold any efforts. When you play your part consistently, the universe is sure to play her role.

One-sided expectations weighing down on the universe will hurt your friendship. Like a jilted lover, she will walk away without looking back. Since you cannot compete with nature, be in her good books.

  1. Make compromises.

Every successful friendship makes compromises. Good friends meet each other halfway instead of holding hard stances. It will benefit none.

Friendship with the universe is not an exception. You may have to postpone – not give up – on some ambitions due to resources constraint among other reasons. You only pursue the possible and bench some targets for some time in the future.

There is no pride in forcing your way through. Make reasonable goals and targets and the universe shall reward you handsomely for that. However, nature does not tolerate giving up. Only rest is allowed. You will live to realize your goals on another day.

The universe’s reciprocation.

When you have a tight relationship with the universe, she shall grace all your efforts. Success will be your portion all through.

She reciprocates in the following ways:

  1. You will be highly favored.

The pursuit of your purpose shall be favored throughout if you maintain an excellent friendship with the universe. It will almost be like magic – everyone nodding in agreement to your proposal.

Mastering the art of friendship with the universe is not a small feat. You deserve all the favor skewed in your direction.

  1. You will attract destiny connectors.

When you maintain a good relationship with the universe, she will see through your shortcomings and link you with destiny connectors.

Do not change direction as you pursue your purpose. The journey may be difficult but that is what friends are for, right? As a good friend, the universe will bring like-minded people your way. They will aid you to reach your goals.

  1. You will be repaid for every good deed.

Nature is the fairest arbiter. She will repay your good deeds, one with another. After all the good you have done for her in your friendship, she owes you a debt of rewarding your kindness.

Consider her as a mother who rewards her children for their good deeds. She will equally punish every unkindness.

Strive to create an everlasting friendship with the universe. Let it transform into an intimate relationship and all your efforts shall be crowned with success.

The Language(s) of the Universe


“If it is not two-way, then that is something different altogether.” This is the most sensible statement ever said about communication. One party listens as the other talks. That is the hallmark of communication. Regrettably, most people do not even know if the universe can ‘talk’ back to them. Well, yes it does and much more.

Communication is a process that culminates in feedback. The receiver has to give feedback (whether positive or negative) to what has been said by the source. Consider it a switch that completes a circuit and lights a bulb. The bulb here is your desires and prayers to the universe. Its answers will make your bulb light.

What language does the universe speak?

If you pay attention, the universe speaks three languages. They are not foreign but you could have missed them out of ignorance. Do not take anything for granted.

Coincidence is a foreign word to the universe. It operates on cause and effect. Here are the three languages of the universe:

  1. Yes.

Yes, YES is a complete answer from the universe. Our prayers, both the known and silent ones are like vehicles in a city. Cities are fairly busy compared to other towns. Moreover, there is also a lot of traffic. In the latest research by World Highways, India’s city of Bangalore ranks the highest with the worst traffic in the world at 71% followed by Manila (capital city of the Philippines) still at 71%, and in the third position is Bogota (the capital city of Colombia) at 68%.

The solution to such worst cases of traffic is using traffic lights. When it hits green, vehicles in a certain lane are allowed to move as others stop. The universe answers our prayers with greenlight to proceed as others wait for their turn.

A YES from the universe has no regrets. It is a blessing to what we are permitted to do. The universe crowns our efforts with glory after its positive answer. Can you imagine if traffic lights in Bangalore city would light green to more than one lane in opposite directions? The number of accidents when this happens would be alarming.

This is the main reason why the universe blesses those who wait for a YES from it. Such acceptance comes in many ways.

You can know it when what was blocking you starts moving aside one by one. These are some signals: your debtors start paying you your dues, the national construction authority approves your project of building a commercial house or your driving license is ready for collection.

You shall succeed when you follow this path the universe is directing you.

  1. No.

No is equally a complete answer. The universe is all-knowing and it can deny your prayers. You are not always entitled to a Yes. When your prayers are declined, it is in your best interests.

language of Universe

Still considering the example of cities with the worst traffic in the world, a red traffic light is not entirely bad altogether. There is a reason why it is red in one lane and green in another. The cars are taking turns to pass through such busy cities.

It would have otherwise been chaotic without the order that traffic lights bring. There is every reason to enforce their compliance by all road users.

You may want to consider No as not a bad answer altogether. In fact, it is in your best interests that your prayer is declined.

Would a sane parent give a young child a loaded gun because they cried for it? No, they would not. They may refuse and give no explanation to the minor. That would still be right. In the future, if the child (now adult) applies for a gun license, their request can be granted.

A No from the universe is still a positive answer. Here is how you can know whether the universe has declined your prayers.

You can lack the money to visit a place and yet get funds for your child’s fees and rent too. You may lack money to start a business but get money to help a friend in need. These ironies in life are nature’s way of saying No to your prayers.

Always have in mind that the universe considers what is best for you at every stage in life.

  1. Wait.

“Wait” is neither a Yes nor a No. It simply means that it is not yet time. At least not just yet. While still considering the example of traffic lights, the amber light means to wait. Vehicles are not permitted to move but a driver can have their foot on the accelerator pedal. They do this fully aware that it will soon be green.

The universe similarly responds to our prayers. They are neither out rightly rejected nor accepted straightaway. They are simply put on hold until an appropriate time comes for it. At the appointed time, a YES comes through and things start moving exactly how we had prayed.

language of Universe

A lot happens during this waiting period. Some people become impatient and decide to force their way through only for them to perish. It would have otherwise paid off to wait a little longer until they get the greenlight.

Other people do not even recognize that they are in wait mode. They assume that their prayers have been rejected and they give up. That is how they throw the baby with the bathwater. They read the wrong signs.

How can you know that the universe has put your prayers on hold? Your loan at the bank could take unusually long to be processed. The bank has not refused to grant you the loan. It simply has to complete all the necessary procedures.

You could be seeking a promotion to the next rank at your workplace. It delays and when it finally comes through, you are transferred to another work station with a higher position than what you had prayed for.

language of Universe

Your patience is very important in understanding communication from the universe. It knows what is best for you and will grant your prayers at the right time.

Do not be in competition with it because your guess is as good as mine who the loser will be.

What goes around comes around

The circle.

Who can guess the beginning and end of a circle? Nobody. It is infinite.

Drawing a circle requires excellent accuracy if you are to draw it with a free hand. Otherwise, you will need a compass or some round object to trace its outlines on paper. That is how special the circle is.

You can be sure that when you start moving around a circle at any given point, you will find yourself at the same place where you started. This is exactly how life is.

Life is first virtual then real.

The meaning of life has not fully been exhausted. The riddle of the paradox of life still remains a mystery. However, only one thing is certain – nothing is permanent. Power, wealth, investments (both long-term and short-term) are all temporary. 

How you relate with other people counts at the end of the day.

Organizations talk of human capital so does life. Human relationships are all that you have left when everything else is gone. The universe reigns supreme above all of us. It is the equalizer.

Virtual images are not real. Even their sizes are not like real images. However, they portray the right image of real objects.

Everything that a person acquires over some time is virtual. The universe causes this to happen so that you can see the real character of a person. Power and wealth can never change a person; they only manifest one’s true identity.

Action and reaction.

Status makes someone have a false sense of security. They think they are untouchable and nothing bad can happen to them. For the moment, it is true until the universe renders justice. What goes around comes around.

Every good or bad action is never forgotten. God – the sustainer of life and creator of the universe – has a record of every one of them. Nothing skips His attention. In His wisdom, He lets things unfold and He seems invisible or affected by what happens.

Have you ever watched a video or audio in loop mode? After it is over, it automatically restarts. You will surely love it if it is good media or your favorite. The more it replays the more it gets better.

What happens if it is something that you do not like? The moment you realize it is in loop mode, you will quickly skip to the next or exit altogether. You do this without a second thought. This is how our lives are before God.

The supreme God.

Our lives are in loop mode before God. He can let us continue in prosperity if our actions are good or cut us off entirely if our actions are evil. He can also stop us in our tracks until we change our ways.

There is no bias because we take full responsibility for our actions. We are liable for our mistakes and deserve an appropriate punishment for the same. Either that or a reward shall visit you soon enough. Its delay is a chance for you to change your ways.


Its mention is mostly feared because there is only one thing you can expect – only what you deserve. Karma is the payback master.

But Karma is not entirely bad. It is your actions or inactions that attract consequences. Bad actions attract bad Karma while good actions attract good Karma. You cannot cheat your way. The only way out of this equation is to be on the right side of it.

The magnet.

Consider the power of a magnet. It only attracts metals and not non-metals. Even the smallest pieces of metal are strongly attracted by a magnet. This is the true test of the presence or absence of a metal in an object.

When an alloy is passed over a magnet, it will be weakly attracted or not at all altogether depending on how much metal it contains.

The size of a magnet does not matter. It does not affect how it will attract metals. It will still attract metals and not non-metals. A magnet is incorruptible and when it is breached, it no longer remains a magnet.

Karma and the magnet.

Just like how the magnet, no matter its size, can differentiate metals from non-metals, so is Karma. It can differentiate good from bad. The intentional and unintentional actions that caused hurt are equally known by Karma.

Many unkind words have been said about it but nothing changes the law of nature. The good shall forever be rewarded and the bad shall be punished. This is to encourage kindness and condemn cruelty.


Every kind act, no matter its size, is always recognizable. It is like a seed that you plant and you shall reap from it in due time.

If you sow a kind act in people, you shall reap it in multiplication. A single seed planted in the ground produces fruit with many seeds in due time. Equally, any unkind act sowed in people shall receive multiple cruelties.

You will want to consider how you treat people moving forward. They are God’s creation and He shall protect them as a parent does their children.

The genesis of it all.

What is happening to you right now is a product of what you did some time back. It is not a coincidence that you lost your job or your business is failing. The universe does not operate on luck but on tangible things.

You could be right in time to save yourself from the calamity ahead. You could have acted out of ignorance before but upon enlightenment, you can make it right again.

Moving forward.

In the spirit of good faith, do good and it shall come back to you. This is the principle the universe wants us to observe.

Form better and healthier relationships with each other because the same people will stand with you after everything is gone. Investing in human relationships is never a bad investment.

The Power of Association

Friendships and relationships.

Friendships and relationships form the fundamental basis of human interactions.

Like a beaded bracelet, they are the thread that holds all the beads in position. The beauty of the bracelet lies in the excellent color combination of the beads which would not have been possible were it not for the thread joining them.

This analogy of a beaded bracelet is what associations are to our lives. Ignore them at your peril. Without their success, your life will be one hell of a mess you wish you could quickly get out of.

Friendships go a long way in ensuring our smooth lives. A mere genuine friendship means well for each other. It can later graduate into a relationship. This goes beyond what was just normal friendship.

Relationships are more personal. They are beyond simple friendships. It could take the form of a working relationship, a romantic relationship, or a social relationship. Whatever form it assumes, it bears the best interest of either party.

The associations you forge are so powerful beyond what you may think. There are many reasons why you may enter into friendships and relationships.

Here are some of them:

  1. It is the social nature of human beings.

Whoever said that human beings are social beings did strike the right chord. It is the most sensible and truest saying this century.

No man is an island. We are dependent on each other in one way or the next. This interdependence is the blessing that the universe has bestowed on us.

We find pleasure in talking to the next person about this or that. Eventually, we finally became best friends with strangers. Goodness! Who has ever known the secrets of the universe?

You are not weird if you find yourself overly social. Consider yourself blessed with an abundance of nature’s gifts.

  1. To build a social network.

Our social nature drives us to build social empires of people we know. The network of people you associate with is also a form of wealth that is mostly overlooked.

While there are limitations on the extent of aid we may receive, the power of your network knows no boundary. The advent of social media does not come as a surprise.

Even the elderly of this generation need social media. At one point in their senior years, they may need WhatsApp to video call their grandchildren living far away. They will need assistance doing this but still, they are building their social network with family.

You can build your social network and meet strangers online who could be potential clients, workmates, or bosses.

  1. Meeting in workplaces and social joints.

You may start a friendship with someone because you met them at work. You need to establish a good working relationship with them for work to run smoothly. Without it, conflicts may abound and the objectives of the work will not be met.

These friendships of convenience finally transform into the best thing we have ever had. We partake in the lives of our workmates because their performance at work affects the output. This could become the genesis of a lot of things.

  1. The need to confide in someone.

Vulnerability is the last thing any of us can acknowledge. However, throughout our lives, the baggage that comes along with survival can get heavy and we may need someone to confide in.

It is almost like an automatic reaction for you to be vulnerable to your best friend, sometimes your partner. For this reason, people get into relationships and friendships more so because they feel safer in them.

Besides these reasons for associating with others, you should not forget the power they wield over your life. This makes it more important when choosing friends and partners.

Here are some of the powers of association:

  1. Adoption of new habits.

It is undisputed that your associates can initiate you into new habits – both good and bad. What was foreign to you could turn out to be the best thing you have ever done, thanks to your friends.

Their influence on you to do what they do is greater. For the fear of missing out, you will eventually yield to their pressure.

Come to think of it, not everything is bad. They can help you discover new things you never knew existed.

The beauty of friendships is in self-discovery and the beginning of an adventurous future.

  1. You will be introduced to new places.

We slack in visiting new places alone because of the fear of being lonely. Nobody wants to be lonely. Instead, we all would like great company wherever we go.

In the right company, you can explore new places. Time spent bonding is invaluable and we would do anything to replay such beautiful moments.

Yes, you can enjoy your company. But it is even better when you know new places courtesy of your associates. 

  1. Associations connect you with destiny connectors.

We meet many people through our friends. Some of them are the ones destiny has put in our way to connect us to our future. Have you ever wondered what would have become of you if you did not meet certain people?

You probably first met these people through your friends. You owe them a debt of gratitude for unknowingly enabling you to meet your current employer or clients. This is the best part of networking.

  1. Creating heart-to-heart connections.

You can bond so much with your associates to the extent it seems you share a single life. Their concerns automatically become yours and your troubles as well become theirs.

This power of association will make you stronger to face whatever comes your way because you know that you are not alone in it. Someone will give you a pat on your shoulder and this will keep you moving.

Associates are responsible for the building or ruining of your dreams. When you meet the right people, they will help you climb the ladder of life to the highest levels. Their support is invaluable.

In conclusion, the power of association is undeniable. Do not think twice to forge associations with the right people and cut off those with people that mislead you.

24 hours of Change

The common denominator.

If there is one thing that the universe has allocated fairly to all of us, it is time. 24 hours is all we have in a day yet how we spend it makes all the difference.

Across all the different time zones, everyone has the same 24 hours to do all they have to. What may understandably vary is the length of day and night.

Most economies worldwide are transitioning (if they are not there already) to be operational 24 hours. The world is now a global village. Everyone is competing for the limited resources available. If you keep on complaining about having limited time for a task, somebody else will replace you unapologetically.

Bias? What bias?

There is no bias whatsoever when it comes to time. Everyone takes personal responsibility for their success or failure wherever they are. Yes, there may be other reasons for failing at something but certainly, time cannot be one of them.

Our individual efforts place us at different levels. You should not rush at anything because you may get it wrong in your hurry. Everything happens at its appointed time.

The speed of time.

It is common to talk about how time flies or crawls like a snail. The truth is that the speed of time is constant. What makes the difference is the activities we do.

You must have noticed how ‘fast’ time moves when you are busy with a task. You never know when an hour or two have passed until you finish what you were at. This is the power of productivity.

To effect 24 hours of change, you need to be busy. Not just being busy but doing a value-added activity. This is what is lacking in a majority of people. The brighter side is what you are doing right now – reading this – adds value to your personality.

 The value of time.

Besides water, time is an extremely important resource. You cannot recover it once wasted. When you misuse it, you will feel its repercussions in a little while. This will torment you when you see others doing what you should have done a long time ago.

The value of time is measured by what you do in a given duration. Did you use your childhood to learn or you were a truant? Did you work when you had the opportunity?

The value of your time will be measured alongside those lines. Your efforts shall be crowned at the appointed time. Everybody has different seasons to shine. You never know how long they have waited to enjoy their current glory. It is an investment of a considerable amount of time. You too shall reach there if you value time and work towards your goals.

Creating value from time.

There are many ways you can create value from your time. You can create the change you desire within 24 hours.

  1. Learn a skill.

Education is endless. It is recommended to go to school at an early age because your young brain can easily grasp new concepts. However, there are many other skills you can learn even after you are grown up.

Soft skills like online marketing, editing digital media, technical writing, translation, e-commerce, and other free courses are available online. Instead of procrastinating, take action and enroll in a course of your choice.

This will make you better placed in an evolving world where your skills guarantee your survival. Idle time spent on wishful thinking will erode your efficiency even in what you already know. Depending on the duration of what you are learning, you will turn out a different person altogether incomparable with your idle peers.

  1. Invest in your health.

Health is wealth. Take time to invest in your health today. Go to the gym and do some cardio exercises, go for that early morning run, or join the local football (or any sports) team. invest in good health

The time you invest in your health will differentiate you from those who did not take such seriously. You can never regret keeping fit because its benefits are extensive.

Not going to the hospital for muscle aches problems, easy mobility, and a stronger immunity are some of the reasons that should motivate you to engage in physical sports.

The temptation to watch Netflix movies day and night and play video games are great and you require greater discipline to overcome it. Do not allow your 24 hours in a day to drown in that pit.

  1. Invest in personal development.

The first person you should invest in is YOU. S(he) will never let you down. An investment in personal development is good because it will transform you to become a better version of yourself.

Read literature that aims to improve your personality (like this one). You can also watch transformational and inspirational content online. The time you spend with such rich content will redeem you from bad habits and prepare you for the outside world.

If you must be addicted to blue screens, then use them to build progressive habits. Habits that will foster unity and improve your overall being instead of constantly doing what you cannot account for online.

Can you imagine the long-lasting impact good digital content can have on you? Why should you drown in depression while you can invest your time in personal development?

  1. Constantly think of ways you can improve.

What you engage your mind in matters a lot. Take your time to think of new ways to do greater things. Do not settle at a single source of income or one way of solving a problem.

Have you ever wondered what would have become of you if had spent your time brainstorming on how to solve your problems instead of complaining to people who cannot help you?

Now that you have seen only a handful of people can help you without any self-interests, think wide and deeply about how you can improve your situation. If it is good, it can become better. If it is already better, make it the best.

In conclusion, much can happen within 24 hours. Both destruction and creation can happen. Invest your time in creating positive habits and the best practices for your success.

Choices Have Consequences

The state of life.

Much has been said about what life is but much more has been left unspoken. It is a classroom where anything can happen. At one time, the student can be the teacher and circumstances can make them exchange places. Life is unapologetic.

Most importantly is the power everyone wields over their lives. This power is vested in decisions.

The beauty is that we take credit for the failure or success of what we become. What we may consider as insignificant choices finally come to haunt us day and night.

Love it or hate it, choices have consequences.

Decision making.

We may think that decisions are what is only reached in boardrooms or in other official meetings. The many choices we make daily are also decisions that cumulatively form the bigger picture.

The irony is that when we choose to make a choice, we have made a decision. When we also choose not to make any choice, we have equally made a decision. We cannot escape decision-making for what it is and when we finally settle on our preferences, we should be ready to face what comes along with it.

The moment of truth.

The moment of truth comes when we are between a rock and a hard place. It is when circumstances force us to choose between options we would rather avoid.

You need to evaluate what are the consequences of each option. There are some sacrifices you may have to make at the altar of decision making. This does not make you any less a better person.

Many people fail when it is demanded of them to choose between two very dear alternatives. They forget that their inaction is also a choice they have made. Thereafter, the aftermath of their inaction starts haunting them.

The aftermath.

Although you may not realize it yet, decision-making is not for the faint-hearted. The consequences of your choices have made you survive the hardships of life (and equally its greatness).

Up to now, you must be aware of one law of nature – the law of action and reaction. It is not rocket science as you once perceived when you first heard of it. 

Every choice we make (action) has its consequences (reaction). The two follow each other in tow. It can never be wished away. Although the consequences may delay, they shall finally come knocking at your door.

Here is what you should possibly expect from your choices:

  1. The reaction of those whom your choice has not favored.

You already know that your decisions shall not please everyone. Some people will be happy about it while others will not be amused. What you do not know is the reaction of those who will be unhappy.

Your choice could hurt their interests and they will not take it lightly. It is natural for people to protect their territories. Anyone who crosses the line is a targeted enemy.

Those not favored by your choice shall withdraw their support from you. They cannot partner with someone who does not consider their interests. While you could have acted innocently for self-preservation, they will cut you off for it. This is the price you have to pay in decision-making.

  1. Uncertainty on the future in your choice.

Sometimes you may have to make first-time choices. You may have to travel in an unfamiliar path for the greater good. Most sober decisions are not popular. They are landmark choices that could completely turn around your life.

There is a certain degree of doubt coupled with anxiety about what lies ahead in store for you. You have no one to turn to and ask about their experience in the choice you have made. You can only trust yourself.

It is perfectly normal to doubt yourself at the beginning but you must not withdraw from what you have started.

  1. Change of environment.

The best assurance in life is that change is constant. It can work for or against us. The circumstances around what made us initially decide can change. What will happen if they change to what we wanted after we have already chosen to move forward?

This is a tough call to make especially if you have already started implementing your choice. Going back will make you look indecisive. For the sake of your dignity and sanity, you will have to reassure yourself that you made the right choice given the prevailing circumstances at that time.

  1. Unmet expectations of your choice.

You cannot have everything all the time. This is a lesson that most people hardly learn. It is one of the possible consequences of your choices. It does not make your initial decision bad. You made it based on what was good for you and you were convinced of its success.

You are strong for making an unpopular choice even if it may not have eventually worked as you had hoped for. Although some of your choices may disappoint, you cannot quit decision-making. Ever.

Unmet expectations fortify your personality and reception to failure. You become better than what you had hoped and disappoint those who expected your downfall.

Your recovery plan.

With all these possible consequences of your choices, you need to know how you can handle them. You should be able to brave the rejection(s) and bask in the glory of your successes.

As you think about the choices on your table, you should plan the way forward whether or not your choices are successful.

This is more important because you cannot dwell on the past. A good plan will have you recover quickly from any setback (should there be any).

Whether good or bad, your choices will have their effects. Are you prepared for them?

Every choice you make should be for a good cause. Your conscience should be clear that you mean well. The sooner you recognize decision-making as a battle that you have to win, the better for you. As you choose, settle on long-term benefits and not short-term gratification.
