Oh thou selfie! You have dealt with humanity, no gentility.
If you can’t take selfie, you are on your own. If your selfie is not functioning, you be yourself. If you don’t have a selfie phone, it is all yourself. Myself, yourself, himself, herself, themselves, all is self, self – still upon selfie. What a world or SELF and SELFIE. ‘Mummy, let’s take selfie. Daddy stay well, you’re on selfie. Brother you need to smile, this is selfie. Sister you are beautiful on this selfie’. Uncle and aunty, together on selfie. Selfie, selfie, selfie. What did selfie do to man? What relationship has selfie with man? Oh ye generation of self and selfie. Sorry to selfie. Selfie is sorry for selfie. Sorry upon sorry to selfie. Upon sorry to sorry for humanity.
With selfie, men laugh. Selfie makes an angry man smile. Mr. and Mrs. Selfie. Barrister (Dr.) selfie. Professor Selfie. Dr. (Mrs) selfie. Master Selfie. Miss Selfie. Uncle Selfie. Aunty Selfie. The sister of selfie. Brother of selfie. Selfie’s brother’s friend. The brother of selfie’s sister. The family of selfie. With all, there’s nothing but selfie. Selfie’s sister’s brother. Selfie-self.

Let not selfie kill yourself. That’s all it got to say.

Like men watch movies with their television set, so are they watched on another television. Obviously, the television that watch men is one that has no fictitiousness within. It is rather one of spiritual-reality; in the sense that it exist, but is not visible to mortality. But who could be the watcher of this television? Let the answer to this question remain pending. Most times, the movie men watch could be a tragedy, comedy, tragi-comedy, farce or burlesque and all the like. But this movie which holds life is of none of the recent mentioned. Yet, its ending must choose to be any one of them – maybe, comic, tragic etc; depending how the affected actor played his part here on earth
It is transparently real that the theatric actors play their parts in accordance to their scripts and the directions of the director. But men of non-fictional plays have decided not to play their parts according to the Divine script given to them, neither do they humble their bubble towards the directions of the Divine Director. The silent Director directs, directed, and still directing; but His directions are like the dews and snow of the watery moist – it comes and go, but will one day end.
Reality has it beyond debatable instances that the theatre directors yell at any misbehaving, and previously misbehaved actor. But the Devine Director has humbly pleaded and is still pleading with the actors of the entire earth to act in accordance to His scripted article for all. Too calm, too slow towards actions. No yelling at the moment. Punishment may not be now while you misbehave in your acts. But man cannot run from His wrath when the cup is full, and while darkness finds it root in your breathe.
See! Watch! See Him look at your misbehaviors. What a painful movie! It’s more than a tragedy. His television is also crying. All the divine Audiences are crying. They have sent lambs who are physically weak to show you their mighty spiritual powers. They may be weak physically, but let their words and your script be the eloquence of truth!
“Had I known” has always been the case for they that do not want to play accordingly. Why not let the ‘Had I known” go now, while the movie is still playing? The funny, yet bitter truth regarding this movie is that it has no rewinding, editing or erasing when it has stopped playing, unlike the theatric ones you see. It is not just a movie. But a movie beyond movie.
“Because everyone does it”, doesn’t mean it’s good!
Why not play your own script, rather than playing another’s?
Are you still bold when you commit flaws, because the Director does not yell at you?
He will not yell now, because He’s not a theatre or Hollywood director. His directions are swift but calm. Utilize this opportunity now while the movie is not yet over.
Do you know that this particular movie can finish this moment, without getting to the end?
It doesn’t even have beginning, let alone having middle or end. It began before the beginning and will end before the ending!
See your script shouting in the scripture – “Act according to me, the Director have written it in your heart. Don’t you have conscience? Can’t you see the truth in that Devine book –the Bible; and amend your ways?
Don’t be caught unawares!
Sleep awhile and watch a lot!

In daily basis, there are things said to keep man alive and as such, let one be recognized a human. There are still people out there who don’t consider these things, and end up bugging their lives, or even living a life of self-enmity. Psychologists believe that everyone need the following to live life to the fullest and be enriched with life’s blessings.
Laugh and smile often:
These two are indeed among the sinews of life. They make people live long and keep happy all day. Though, there are certain moments when people tend not to be happy for inevitabilities, maybe hardship, tension or stress. But the truth is, everyone got to find a way to press forward because, not smiling or even laughing often reduces life span of an individual. So, don’t hurt yourself by not practicing smiling and laughing. They purifies the heart, soul and mind; and thereby helps one to be psychologically alert.
Talk to people:
There are numerous people out there believed to have chosen to be isolated from the neighborhood. This is absolutely wrong. You can agree with me that the isolated easily grow old; not by age, but by their physical appearance. Take for instance, you meet someone who is 30 years old, thinking he’s 50 or more. His unsociable attitude is behind the scene. So, look at the mirror, check your physical appearance; and if you tend to be older than your age, you’re not associating with people.
Avoid being angry without a cause:
If you are among those who cannot let go the stimulations of anger for triviality, know that something is wrong. Anger is one of the lives’ phenomenal properties and should be followed carefully. As anyone is exposed to the risk of being angry, there are possibilities of creating room for the devil in one’s heart. And when that happens, such persons affected may do irrevocable acts; which may lead them to problems. So avoid anger.
For those who are not familiar with the subject, it simply means harbouring certain feelings within you; probably someone wronged you, knowingly or unknowingly. The truth is, this act is capable of killing anyone before his time. Most times, the person you have this negative feelings for is ignorant of the goings-on, yet you have evil thoughts against him. Moreover, he would be feeling very fine, healthy and strong, while you are busy hating him and depreciating in all ramification. Just learn how to let issues go, and also learn to forgive people who wrong you. If God can forgive you your sins, you should also be in the position to forgive others. So, work on this now by reconciling with those you have negative for.
Make people talk about you:
This one may seem awkward right? But it is certain that if no one talk about you, either for good or bad, you do not exist. Hence, people saying their views about you simply means you live and that is normal. Don’t see it as some crazy things. Now, how can you make people talk about you? One can be a subject of a topic if he makes people smile especially. Try to put smile on people’s face. They will surly appreciate and talk about you, and it will pave way for you, and give you a bright future. Be a light unto people, and see what I’m talking about.
The above when practiced accurately helps in adding life to people, and gives room to happy living. As such, try to see the above stated as daily routine. You’ll surely live a happy life.

Anything you want to do is you, yourself I mean. And whatever you want to do towards personal, family or societal growth is definitely possible. Don’t say or have it that you cannot do it. Maybe, you are young, inexperienced or discouraged by people around. But the truth is, whatever be you, is you and whatever you have as to conviction that you can do is exactly what will take you to the top. So, don’t disparage that voice that says you can; as long as what you tend to do or are doing is that which is morally acknowledged.
Sometimes, friends, family or even bias thoughts can let you know that you cannot do it. Though it’s normal because there must be such things that will like to hinder you, or even discourage you. But don’t stop there. Carry on and hit the nail at the head. Haven started doing those things you long to do, you may not be perfect at first, but you will surly make it, as long as you engage in constant practice.
Don’t be afraid of failure. Those who feared failure never made it and there is a tendency that those who avoid failure may not make it, unless miracle is involved. So appreciate failure and carry on. A contemporary quote says - “Failure is a lubricant that will enable you fit into the tight cadre of greatness”. Hence, learn from your mistakes and never give up.
Learn how to rebuke the spirit of “I don’t think I can do it”. Really it works. Ever since I learnt to do so, I have been conquering challenges of failure. Having the thought of failure always make people fail. And the tendency of this being true is 95 percent. So try to tell yourself that you can do it; always have positive mindset on things you do. There are countless lads out there who made it at tender age, because they were courageous. I call them lad because, that’s what they are, to have achieved something great.
We may appreciate the youngest noble prize winner; Miss Malala Yousafzai, a Pakistani girl, who at tender age started what she loved most, Seeking to go through academia (amidst stiff-necked circumstances), and standing for the youngsters all of the world, in order to activate child’s awareness programs – especially female children and lady-youths. Now, she’s the most ever notable young political activist. Therefore, I believe you can make it as she did.
Finally, believe in yourself. Trust the personality of yourself. Stop counting others greater than you are. No one is created to be great. But everyone bears the image of greatness, and greatness will never be, unless such person starts setting goals and working towards achievement. Hence, those who are great today is as a result of their hard work. And never seek for shortcuts, because shortcuts are evil and leads one to destruction. Just go through the normal process. You will make it. Always say to yourself with confidence and faith – I can make it; pray to God, work towards it and see yourself blossom in greatness.

Stage fright being an impulse of tension, fears and body-inactiveness while on stage is a natural phenomenon and shouldn’t be seen as an offence when it occur to you or any other person. Even professional speakers sometimes encounter stage fright before mounting the stage or immediately they get to the verge of the stage. So, don’t have it to be a constraint towards speaking in the public or addressing a group of people. Just do the following and overcome it
Mop the audience, instead of looking right in their eyes:
The faces of audience is very scary when addressing them. Because, everyone will have his eyes on you while you speak. The eyes can make anyone fall to his feet on stage, this is the reason people don’t like going to the stage. They don’t know where and how to look at the audience. But the way out is this; If you must look at them, you have to do what is called mopping, making up your face to their forehead instead of looking directly into their eyes. As a beginner speaker, once you look into their eyes, you may get intimidated and tend to forget the next thing to say. So, mopping is the way out of this
Note: Moping in this context doesn’t mean you should wear a scary face that is deficient of smiles and cheerful outlook. While moping at their forehead, you smile when necessary. Nobody will notice what you are doing.
Don’t have the notion that you are addressing people bigger than you:
This is one of the reasons people fear the stage. They have it in mind that there is a possibility that the audience is more experienced and bigger than they are. Therefore, they fear to go on stage. No, that’s not it. At the moment of being on stage, you are the MAN on stage and you have to erase every notion of having people who are greater present. Just go on and say what you have in mind. Don’t even worry if the President of the country happen to be there. Ride on and blow the dust off your eyes.
Don’t be afraid of mistakes:
People never wanted to make mistakes. But the truth is this, those who fear mistakes never made it. Mistake is a part of learning and when it occur, it is a good tool for correcting it. When people learn by mistakes, they grow greater. Also, no one is above the said mistake. So, there is no need being afraid of it. All you need do is, making a simple, yet quick correction of the mistake to tell the audience that you know what you are doing. Immediately it occur, you can say things like – Am sorry, I mean…. I beg your pardon, it should be…. Oh! Am meant to say…. Or even make a slight joke out of it. But try to keep it very simple. Hence, mistake is normal and shouldn’t be taken to the extreme.
Practice, practice, practice:
Perfect practice makes one perfect they say, is true. Every speaker before becoming a professional must have gone through practices on how to appear on stage. Start taking topics and speak on them in front of your friends, family and relatives. Let them be your judge, to see how good you go. Don’t be discouraged by any of their negative confessions. Just ride on, and on. Also get to answer and ask questions. And finally get to be acquainted to those who are already into it. They will teach you better and also let you know all the tactics and skills of becoming a good stage user.

It has kept many in dilemma, because they couldn’t afford it, as though it is food or money. Though the society wouldn’t take a great man by virtue of natural skills and talent; if he hadn’t anyone in his file or paper-bank. But is this how it should really be? Well, what has been has been. It takes only those with foresight towards the subject to direct it for good. Because, most employers will never have anyone employed in his office if he has no certificate; even though he may possess the potentials beyond those that have one. You see, it is well proven that the subject itself is nothing but a paper. I mean a mere paper and not the required potentials, skills, strength, intelligence and all that. And that is the problem of the society today.
Some will always complain that there are no good jobs, whereas there are countless job opportunities out there. This complaint comes haven been interviewed. And after the interview result is out, it would be that the interviewee failed, and even having oral statements which are in contrast to what is stated in his certificate. Then what is the need of acquiring such paper? The truth is, employers need and want those who have what it takes to help contribute towards the goal of the company or institution; nothing more or less. In the other hand, employers strictly want those with certificates. If not, no job. Obviously, those they disparage - not having the said certificate in most cases are the human-material they actually need. But they ignore them and go after those they want; and end up not making it at top regarding meeting up with their expectations.
The question is, why has this paper made man a tool of ridicule and man allows that? It is really not funny. The fact that he doesn’t have the paper (as I call it), doesn’t mean he can’t do the work effectively as you wish to have it be done. Hence, consideration should be that this subject be treated accordingly and give room to those who are not opportune or privileged to have the said paper. Moreover, Mr. Williams Shakespeare hadn’t any, yet he is, even at death considered the greatest and frequently ever quoted personality in the world, as long as Literature is concerned. You see, every field of study anyone engages in and is perfect towards it, is not all about what he acquired from studies or what certificate has given him. But those special qualities he has been blessed with by God. Been enrolled into professional courses is just to backup those inborn quality and be called a graduate or one who has acquired a certificate – The name; that’s all. But many can concur that some persons before graduation have become what they have earlier wished to become. They just waited or are waiting to have that paper, which probably waste quality time for those who needed to have showcased their expertise on what they know how to do best.
Why do I have to speak on this? Because, I have seen, (not told or think) where men who have no certificate reveal what they have through practical. And they did very well more than those who have it. Many successful businessmen and women applied nothing but the entrepreneurial attributes and skills in them. Hence, they make it today; yet they have no papers. In as much as they are yet uneducated, some educated scholars come to them to seek advice, coaching and follow their seminar or even make them personal matron or patron, just to be like or more than them. Did it just sound like an irony? Well, it may have sounded as such, but reality remains what it is, and no eraser can erase it. So, dear employer and recruiter have these ones without papers show you what they got. Just give them some time, monitor their inputs and outputs. Promise have it that you will not regret having them.
Do you know that in most cases those who have no papers do better than those who have? And reason is, those who have will always have the notion that they can never be rejected by most firms, companies or institutions, because they have a handsome certificate and tends to care less regarding their field of study. While those who have none are totally the opposite. They’ll be dedicated, careful and keep practicing, even in private to make it high, hoping that even though they got no papers to speak for them, their physical technicality will, and that’s it. Also, there is this wonderful quote I use often, which states – Certificate is just a paper and is irrelevant without knowledge, skills, and potentials. Therefore, “disparage not those you need and go after those you need not, but want”.

WHAT IS THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN YOU AND THE SOCIAL NETWORK?
Note: This is to open your eyes towards the category you may find yourself regarding the forces of social network you may not know
Father and son/daughter?
When the social network seems to be your father and you the daughter or son, it totally dominates you like a father does to his children. How can you know when this is happening to you? The manifestation of this is when you as an individual answer its call every time it calls (gives you notification), even when you should be engaged with something more than important than it is. This time, you don’t hesitate to make a move towards it. Well, this is unusual. It could be called addiction or better a spell been casted on the doer. One ought to caution himself for the domineering ability of the social network. And if you observe that you cannot do without it for one day that means it has become a father to you!
Mother and son/daughter?
This one is prevalent today. If you wish to know if the social network is becoming a mummy or has become a mummy to you, it’s when you operate it under its arm and sleep off. This is the responsibility of mummies. And if facebook or whatsapp can have you on its palm while operating it, and you suddenly sleep off without knowing you’re still online, definitely, it is becoming a new mummy to you; be careful!
As you know that sisters/brothers can run errands at the same time, social network sisters/brothers and human sisters/brothers can as well do the same. As such, if you want to decipher whether the social network has become a sister/brother to you, it’s when you cannot go to shopping without operating on it (even when your phone should be on charge), you cannot eat without it, you cannot go to the bathroom without it, you cannot even watch television without it and all that, then you know that something is wrong. When you do the above recent, just know that you are simply making the social network a brother or sister, thereby depriving your human sister/brother their relationship.
If you have to know when the social network becomes your uncle/aunt, it’s exactly when you take permission from your parents or relative to answer an urgent skype call even when you are sitting closer to your Parents in church or any important place that requires attention more than the skype activity you intend to do. And if your mobile phone eventually get lost and found, you will suddenly jump to the sky to welcome it like an uncle or aunt who is returning from travel, all in the name of the social network. If all these happen to you, that’s social network aunt/uncle you got there; it’s not ordinary.
When it’s becoming your cousin, you want to travel back to the village or town alone, as the case may be; just to have alone time with your mobile phone, so that both of you can have fun. This is serious! Is it your cousin? It’s only fun and a thing of joy to travel a far distance to see a cousin, but when it’s happening in the case of social network, think twice, you are having a social network cousin. It’s unusual.
Friends and others?
When you are friend to the social network, you see yourself behaving unusual worse than the extreme. You will hardly talk to your human friends. Because you got no time for them any longer. Hence, you speak to yourself while spending time on the social network. Sometimes, people see you chatting and smiling while travelling on foot or even taking a walk. While doing this, people out there will think you’re insane. You may not notice it, but those who see you, see you! So amend your ways. You are having imaginary friends. This is not normal.
This is the stage that when anyone gets to it, is gone. And here, when you see yourself not conscious of what is going on in your environment as a result of operating your phone (even when you are at the forefront), you are now on trouble, not in trouble! See, when you get to this stage, the social network along your mobile phone has possessed you and it will only take deliverance to get you right, not just caution or advice because you have graduated from those ones. Also, whenever you have issues with someone regarding to your mobile phone, and you are pushed to kill the person in your inner man, there’s fire on the mountain. Many have killed because of mobile phone related issues. This is not them acting, but the spirit infused into them by the said social network and the mobile phone. This is no jokes. Be careful!
Finally, all the above are no jokes, no matter how humorous you may think it is. Just have your eyes opened and be careful about what you indirectly call the various social networks you operate on. Many of them are not just what you think about them, or what know about them.
This article is in no manner tend to discriminate, disparage or to put asunder the relationship between any social network, users and/or owners. It is to educate the audience on the consequences of over-dedication and life-laying acts they infuse on these social sites. Hence, this site and its operator(s) is not to be held responsible for any misunderstanding, misinterpretation or falsified notion towards the intended transmission.

· What is language?
· Who is language? and
· Where is language?
Before proceeding, it is important to note that language is not seen in a literal view. But language is a MAN rather than just a FORM, SYSTEM or even PROCESS.
That is the reason it has POWER.
WHAT IS LANGUAGE?
· Is a form of communication using words either spoken or gestured and signs with the hands or body and structured with grammar, often with a writing system.
· Language is any form of expression that let man react
· Language is a reflection of thought
WHO IS LANGUAGE?
Are you surprised? Don’t be. Language is a man and that man is you and I.
· Language is that man that is able to make people cry, laugh, excited, overwhelmed and so on. The strength of language brings about the possibility of reducing an entity to a non-entity and is also able to make a King go on his knees. Even though it’s just conveyed through spoken words, gestures, signs and symbol, it still passed across by someone who is associated with the said language. As such, language itself is not alone. Hence, it is among the community of man and man regards him as one among the cadre of humanity.
· Language is the man that reveals our identity to people
· Language is not a ‘phrase, it’s not just a sentence’, but a ‘PERSONALITY’
WHERE IS LANGUAGE?
· Language is in every individual on earth. It comes automatically
· It is in the womb of every mother – even the baby in the mother’s womb is the language we talk about and once he is born, he would not thought in any school or trained in any training centre to learn his mother tongue. That is why the said language lives in every mortal on earth.
· It is here and there with man - Everywhere is a carrier of language as long as man survives in such places. Because, it is language that makes man understand every environment he finds himself. Without language, there is no environment.
· Language can be found in everything we do – Every field of study, area of specialization, profession, career and what have you cannot exist without this language. The brain captures every action before it is executed and communicates to the body on what to do and how to do it. The process of communication in which the brain is involved is a product of LANGUAGE. So, there is no place where language could be avoided.
· Language is a product of God-given breath of life in humanity – When God created the world, it was through the word of mouth He did that. That word of mouth is through language. That means, language is found in the spoken word of man.
THE PERSONALITY OF LANGUAGE:
Without humanity there is no language and without language, there is no community. Both the community where man is found and man himself is regarded as the person of language. It could be Spanish, English, French, Chinese and so on. Therefore, the speakers of any language speaks themselves, nothing more. That is why language is recognized greatly to be an important culture of a people. These people tell whom they are through what they say, how they say it and the portrayal effects of what is being said. Hence, it is of a great degree to understand that language is not just a system, but a personality of a people
How does language possess power?
If language is considered a man, it must have power to function
“Without language, man cannot survive”. That is ‘the power of language’
Without language, there would be no greetings –‘Vanakkam’
Without language, there will be no Clothing – Saree and dhoti
Without language, there would be no Food – Dosai, samba…
How is language powerful like a man?
“Culture is the mother to a people and language is the father”
· Clothing, food, material resources etc is the MOTHER (Culture) of the society of the world.
Different languages of the world teaches man, as parents do to know that man must say:
· Good morning, welcome, goodbye and so on to all, apologies, manner of approach
· Abide by school, college rules, association’s constitution, Live an exemplary life.
· Language finds someone when he is lost, etc. – It is only communication processes that would enable one to help another to be found when lost. These processes involved in communication is nothing but language.
· Language is unique in its powerful existence!
Because man die, but language does not.
Language is the only man on earth that when others die, he lives
· The eye we look is language
· The smiles and laughter we show is language
· Speaking cannot be achieved without language
· Dancing is language
· Learning is language
· Fighting is language
· Sleeping is language
· Death and birth is language
· Even when the person does not exist, people keep talking about him. Such is language being alive (Even when men die)
“Language is a great personality life and humanity should count on”
“Without language, there is no identity”
“Without identity, there is no humanity”
“Without humanity, there is no world”
“If there is no world, nothing exists”
Therefore, Language is powerful and the power of language is you and I.
