Life drives you in different locations at different times
Sometimes when I dream I see the best things in life, and I wish the dream would never end, suddenly I wake and reality hits, but it doesn’t take so long for the dream to come alive, I live my dreams, knowing that things are not usually what they seem, but the growth I have experienced in my life has been my greatest motivation.
I remember watching a movie, “The Secret” and since then I have directly lived under the principles of the greatest law in life, “The law of attraction” the law states that whatever you get in life you attract to yourself, well most people I meet, I try to show this experience with them, and hint them on my experience in life, how directly and indirectly things I have gotten and where I am now was a direct reflection of what I actually wanted and what I craved for, well this is so true.

Akin as he is fondly called has been my mentor since I met him, I try to copy his lifestyle, well on a serious note this is a huge task, cos daily I see a lot he goes through and he still has time to smile, and a lot of time to share laughs with his staff, this is the most essential stuff needed for the position and he freely exhibits them. He handles issues with so much expertise, and knows something about everything and everything about something, last week were preparing for out monthly meeting and when we presented some hard core account figures to me, (I’m so hating calculations) he looked through and in a second a found out that a calculation was wrong, the guy who presented the paper could not help but ask; Akin did you study accounting? Well shockingly he didn’t, but that shows you how vast he is. Continue reading
