Happy New Year Fam!!!

Happy New Year Fam! I’m so glad I’m alive to see this new year – the beginning of another cycle. For me, 2012 brought so many blessings, victories, and very few disappointments. Now, I realize that this might not have…

Don’t Kill Your Boss, He’s Not Worth the Stress…

Hey fam! I hope you kicked off your day with a positive attitude! I know that’s hard to do most of the time; especially since we’re constantly surrounded with problems that just won’t go away! Problems with varying intensity – from something as serious as gas prices that keep fluctuating to very negligible things such as your very obnoxious, discouraging, and self-obsessed boss whose perception of you determines whether or not you’ll be promoted, and hence, how much you earn and the quality of your life! :-)

You Don’t Drown By Falling in Water…

Hey fam! Hope you’re rocking the last week of the year! I pray you either achieved your goals for the year or got close enough to achieving them! I also hope you’ve started putting new ones together for 2012! :-D

Here’s a short clip from one of my favorite motivational speakers – Zig Ziglar. Please endeavor to pull all you can from it! And remember, it’s never too late to start living your dreams!

Merry Christmas!!!!

Hey fam! Just wanted to drop by and wish y’all a merry Christmas!! So here we go:

Show Some Love…

Hey fam! As we all know, Christmas is the season of giving. It’s a season of sending gifts and gift cards to friends and loved ones. Above all, it’s a season of appreciation and celebration of God’s greatest gift to man – Jesus. It sure is a fun season!!

However, today, I want to urge you to do more than just give wrapped gifts. I want to encourage you to give the people around you the gift of a smile…You don’t have to have an incredible sense of humor to do that. You don’t even need a sense of humor at all! :-)

The Eagle in You: Face the Storm…

“Opportunities to find deeper powers within ourselves come when life seems most challenging.” – Joseph Campbell

Hey fam! Hope you’re all doing great! Hope Christmas shopping and all that good stuff’s coming along just fine…If you’ve not bought anything yet, please don’t delay…get out there and rob some stores of their discounts!! :-D

Today, I want to talk about another characteristic of eagles – let’s call it…Wing power! When a storm hits, eagles are the only birds that are brave enough to stay in the air; other birds (the ducks, sparrows, and geese) head for their nests! lol…It gets even better. Eagles don’t just stay in the air, they fly into the storm!! Kinda cool huh? Those creatures have very incredible wing power!

The Eagle in You: Fly high…

“Whoever believes the sky is his limit has limited imagination.” – anonymous

Hey fam! Waking up this morning, I thought to myself, “Dang! I’ve been so busy lately that I’ve been neglecting my seeds in words fam!” Well, this is me trying to make it up to you! :-D

Over the next few days/weeks, we’ll be talking about different characteristics of eagles, and the vital lessons we could learn from them! So, please tag along…let’s reason together for a bit!

** Oh! and by the way, my full name, Ugochukwu, means God’s eagle! Just thought I should get that out there :-p **

I want to start with the flight capabilities of eagles. I did some research and found out that in their top flight, bald eagles can fly as high as 30,000ft. That’s about the cruising altitude of jet powered airliners! This is one of the characterist

If A Dog Can Do it, We All Certainly Can!

“A true friend never gets in your way unless you happen to be going down.” – Arnold H. Glasow

Hey fam!! I hope your October has been great thus far! Mine has been very busy! But I’m grateful that I have something productive to keep me busy! :-D There’s something else I’m grateful for…True friends.

Even though the definition of a true friend varies from one individual to the next, I believe the universal attribute of a true friend is selflessness! A true friend is willing to go the extra mile for you; to place your affairs before theirs; to make tremendous sacrifices for you. It’s a display of love; one that will never be forgotten.

Diamonds…

Hey fam! I got my big brother to share a bit of his thoughts with you. Below is what he had to say. I hope you grab something from it! Enjoy!

DIAMONDS

Strange topic huh??? Of course I can guess yes!

Why diamonds?? Because my name is Icez??? Noooooooooo…but because I have lived to find out that if our lives are like diamonds(selective, rare, admirable etc), we’d live everyday glittering, shining and above all very very strong.

Note: Most diamonds are over three billion years old, two-thirds the age of the Earth. There are a few “youngsters,” though, which are only 100 million years old.
Lesson: If we try to live our lives like the diamond, we’d get old and still look as fresh as ever.

A Word From Bruce Lee…

Hey fam! If you feel your environment is making it difficult for you to thrive and become your best, Bruce and I have got the perfect solution for you! B-D You see, sometimes it’s advisable to play the “Sucker” for a short period of time; if that’s what it’d take to get you where you want to go.
