Entry 2. Unite our voices

As horrible as it is, those living in Europe see lots of things from the Land of hope and glory and of so called Freedom, the U.S.A. they cannot understand.

Anno 2016 the discrimination of people with an other skin colour or with an other faith seems to be again hot topic.

Unbelievable when we hear certain white Christians defend their supremacy over other people, as if they are talking about degraded animals or sort of things. Our mouths often fall open when we see how those you would think should be there to keep law and order can not control themselves and use a weapon as if it is a cloth to take dashes away. After having demobilised a person they still can not control themselves and as if they are taken by lots of fear they shoot and shoot and shoot again, even when the person seems to be without life the police officer still shoots as if it is nothing … when we white people and coloured people in Europe see it nearly daily on our television channels.

To our surprise how many voices from the politicians from that State want to take sites and clearly show their heart?

But also, how many voices of white and coloured people from the Old World are willing to speak up against that continued hate there seems to be in that land where so many are trying to build up their dreams?

That the voice of people of colour, still isn’t heard as loudly as the voice of the White is part a fault of those who live in oppression. It are those who are taken by their own fear of being a respectful human being that is and has to stand that allows “White power” of some to dominate them. Hopefully those black people do not think all whites are the same as those neo-nazis and racists, but come to see that all human beings should unite to act against any form of discrimination.

Therefore we too, bring out a call to all who want to hear and to all who do find they are a decent human person of the human race, that they show that they are different than wild animals and that they all show up to let their voice sound loud and clear over the whole world that all human beings should unite and put their hands and souls together to build up a peaceful world where variety is providing a colourful beautiful world to live in.

Let us, even if may not be some one important or not living in a big state, bring out our voice and show the world that it can be different. that more bloggers come to share the message of peace and equality.

To remember

  • constant talks about how far we as a society have come from the days of slavery + open humiliation of black people, how much we have improved.
  • racism = reduced greatly
  • we should be thankful to the likes of Martin Luther King
  • Nazia (Naz or Naznaz or Zia or Zakia or Zak or Jakie or Jacks or Chow or Chowy or Chowds or Chowders or even Chowmein) who has have nothing against Bengali and possess only love for her Caucasian friends, the quality of improvement is simply insufficient.
  • lives still being taken + families still being ripped apart because of skin colour =/= improvement
  • One life taken away from us = one life too many
  • we refuse to recognise that protection = only for selective members of our society

She thinks

We should not talk about racism because it makes white people feel uncomfortable. A couple of times I have been told that the only way to end racism is to stop talking about racism. That we need to move away from the days of slavery, of oppression.

  • How can we move away when you do not let us? How can we move away when you still refuse to let go of your white privilege?
  • try and tell the mother of Tamir Rice or Micheal Brown that racism is not an issue today
  • tell the innocent children and beautiful wife of Alton Sterling that his murder should just be forgotten because of the comfortability level of a white person.
  • racism= horror (of the past) => let it go <+ acts of white ancestors not white people of today
  • blaming all white people today for the actions of those from over a century ago =  preposterous
  • when actions of these white ancestors = still effecting black children of today => something needs to be done, we cannot just let it go.

 

If anyone does not want to aid in the prevention of racism, however deluded they may be then so be it but to attempt to stop this movement of exposing racists and to excuse it by saying racism does not exist or black people always make everything a race issue, is absurd. It is made a race issue because it is a race issue.

  • Dehumanisation of people of colour by the White, allows them to be treated so brutally. They are simply seen as inferior.
  • no excuse for this brutality
  • percentage of black crime = statistically higher compared to white crime, in America + in the UK. = majority committed by the poorer + more lower class in society => not skin colour making  commit crime <= lack of money + position in society + need of survival
  • to avoid need of crime = wealth.White privilege = advantages hold due to colour + accepting certain privileges in society because of colour important > production of oppression + dehumanisation of people of colour.
  • Celebrities = great influence in today’s society + can take movements like these to heights we cannot even imagine

There are constant talks about how far we as a society have come from the days of slavery and open humiliation of black people, how much we have improved. It is remarkable. Admittedly racism has been reduced greatly and we should be thankful to the likes of Martin Luther King however to me, the quality of improvement is simply insufficient. If lives are still being taken and families are still, to this day, being ripped apart and all because of skin colour, I do not see this as improvement.
One life taken away from us, is one life too many.
A simple uniform and pale skin, is quite literally letting these countless deluded fools get away with murder. They have taken an oath of protection. Where is this protection? The reason for the death of Philando Castile is that we refuse to recognise that this protection is only for selective…

Failures, mistakes and Initiatives for Excellence and success, Working towards turning a Dream of yours into reality

We all have to have dreams. Without dreams we shall not accomplish much in life.

Dr Austin Ejaife, [an Olorogun, the ‘Ugo’ of Agbon Kingdom] a Professional Tax, Audit, Accounting, Strategy and Global Corporate Governance Consultant, who also wants to be Motivational Speaker, Inspiration mover, Political Critic and Social Crusader with passion for good governance, advocacy and empowerment for Positive Change, reflects how he views and interpret real life issues, current news items from around the world and Nigeria in particular. But he has also some good food for thinking for those in the West as well.

He writes about are do’s and don’ts and knows we all make mistakes and have to live with them, but are better to look forward to the tomorrow which will come–and it is up to us how we choose to face the day ahead of us.

The mistakes of yesterday are in the past, and with the right attitude and some effort, today will find us making fewer. {Leave Yesterday’s Mistakes In The Past… And Bring The Lessons With You So That You Will Not Repeat Them}

In our previous article we looked at some celebrities. Several highly placed people or those who are in the picture for a while may get a certain attitude. It is not weird or strange to find leaders filled with abnormal hubris lacking internal validation. Dr. Austin Ejajaife tells about some wonderful studies, that shows the corroding effects of ego and how leaders are more likely to suffer from disease of fixing fat compensation, acquiring other firms and engaging in other risky strategies to feed their egos. Leaders ought to cultivate humility. {Initiatives For Excellence: Avoiding Arrogance of Power}

Successful people are able to come into the danger zone, becoming a leader, or anyone in a position of power and authority, having to avoid the trap of arrogance of power.

Everything rises and falls on leadership,”

says Dr. John C. Maxwell,

“but knowing how to lead is only half the battle. Understanding leadership and actually leading are two different activities.” {Initiatives For Excellence: 12 Major Signs Of Leadership In Danger (I)}

Dr Austin Ejaife *(Ugo1)* writes

The key to transforming yourself from someone who understands leadership to a person who successfully leads in the real world is character. Your character qualities activate and empower your leadership ability, or they can stand in the way of your success
Dr. Ted Engstrom  says that organisation succeed or fail for many different reasons.

Even the mature organization or nation is not without its hazards. In many ways the dangers that it faces are more subtle. They are often the result of success rather than failure. {Initiatives For Excellence: 12 Major Signs Of Leadership In Danger (I)}

We would say it is not only leadership in danger but also for our own success we have to be careful not to settle for the status quo. We also should know that new ideas shall bring with them a conflict of interest, and conflict of interest brings internal tension. We continuously have to work around those feelings and cope with that internal tension.

Quality is far more important than quantity. Size or quantity must always be secondary to the effectiveness. Discriminating between breadth and depth is not easy. That is why there is a real danger here. Leaders may have a great desire to expand throughout and beyond our community or to the rest of the world, but if the quality of our products or services is not being continually strengthened, then, we may discover that we have over-extended ourselves. {Initiatives For Excellence: 12 Major Signs Of Leadership In Danger (I)}

We always should know ourselves and have to be realistic what we can do and what we can handle, never forgetting to listen to others and to look around us, noticing what is going on and how society reacts to certain things. One of those dangers when looking around is that we view a situation from a limited point of view.

The only failures that really exist are choosing to hold onto limiting thoughts such as, “There is nothing we can do to move beyond this situation.” Life is a series of decisions. If something didn’t work out in the past, accept what happened as being an incident from the past, and be willing to move on. If we are spending time trying to change the past, we have limited ourselves from moving forward. Please remind yourself that we cannot change what has already happened. We can change how we feel about past situations. {Turn Your Failure Into Accomplishment!}

Lots of people look up at what they think may be the success or happiness of somebody else. They keep comparing themselves with others and get pulled down or frustrated. By doing so they often are limiting themselves.

Limiting beliefs always create limited outcomes. Limited thinking also keeps us stuck from moving beyond the imaginary walls known as our comfort zones. If we really wish to turn failure, disappointment, or frustration into something positive, we need to be willing to step out of the comfort zone arena. Whenever we approach any situation in a limited manner, it is because we are holding onto excuses and fear. When we feel limited or challenged usually also results in feeling discouraged.

Discouragement translates into more excuses; and eventually because of thinking from a limited point of view causes us to stop working on achieving our goal(s). By understanding that in order to experience disappointment or failure, if we can recognise that we made a decision to stop, quit or give up, is only a decision. This incredible insight suggests that if we were to make better decisions we can turn the whole thing around. {Turn Your Failure Into Accomplishment!}

We should remember

When working on goals, instead of approaching the situation as difficult, vague or impossible, let us begin by changing our point of view. By beginning to use positive intentions helps us to view tasks as being possible and manageable. We are changing what we are holding in mind. Instead of responding with,

“Maybe tomorrow… or giving yourself some other excuse,”

make a decision that focuses on easily completing the task. A better response would be,

“I can easily take care of this,”

and give yourself a reasonable period of time to accomplish the task (i.e. by the end of day, week, or month, etc.). By approaching tasks as easy, and also providing a reasonable timeframe, allows us to take the appropriate actions to accomplish the task without getting discouraged. {Turn Your Failure Into Accomplishment!}

The writer of the blog which we advice you to visit, is convinced that

We are marvellous and unique beings, created by a loving God for a purpose that is quite perfectly our own.

Who is to say that our dreams have to be like theirs, or anyone else’s in this world for that matter? Just because someone else dreams of amassing new things, more power, greater wealth, or more fame, does not mean we, too, share the same passion. Perhaps we just want to travel the world more, or dream of a simpler life with less stress and more peace. {Work Towards Turning A Dream Of Yours Into Reality}

Looking at what Douglas Everett says:

“There are some people who live in a dream world, and there are some who face reality; and then there are those who turn one into the other.”

Ejaife thinks there is more than simply realizing that we are in charge of choosing our own dreams in life.

We must also realize that within us, we possess the ability to turn those dreams into our reality, if we but dare to take the necessary steps to make them come true. What did you dream of as a child? Have you realized any of those dreams? What do you dream of today? How do you feel when you are focused on those dreams? As children, we often allowed ourselves to dream with the idea that any one of those dreams could come true. But as we grow older, we often times buy into what other people consider reality, and our dreams get pushed aside, packed away, and perhaps even forgotten. {Work Towards Turning A Dream Of Yours Into Reality}

When looking at the screen of your television and hearing about all those celebrities, remind yourself that all that fame is temporarily and does not always brings that luck hoped for.

Ejaife brings questions to consider. We should think about what we want to do in our life and with our life. We should ask ourself why we are so often afraid to tackle certain issues.

Why do we often put our dreams on hold?

How can we go about turning our dreams into our realities?

What differences do you see between dreams and reality?

For further thought:

“Dreams pass into the reality of action. From the actions stems the dream again; and this interdependence produces the highest form of living.” ~ Anais Nin

The Goal

elders used to ask “what do you wanna become when you grow up?”

we just want to be successful.

Many of us dream to be successful. Most of us think glory and being very well known will bring luck or prosperity. But they might be mistaken by that.

Those listed few people who are/were extremely successful in their life had many battles to win and not always had it very easy to reach the top or have the fame they may receive now. It is also impossible for us to know if they are really happy with their life and feel blessed and are feeling lucky.

Can we be sure they reached the dream or got what they hoped for? Perhaps they had other aspirations and many of them for sure still have much wider dreams and want to do so much more. For many of them their goal is not at all reached, though we may think they got at their end point or that they reached the unreachable.

Luck and successfulness should be investigated and questioned and not always go together. Many seemingly very successfully people where very unhappy and still found themselves not successful.

What is it we want to strive for and how do we want to built up our successfulness. When do we consider ourselves successful? what is being successful?
Is having fame the same as being successful? Do know that television and showbiz people may at one moment being renown, but very soon their fame begins to tarnish when their name is not any more on the role. Many spectators look up at those people who they call famous or ‘world renowned’ though they even are not yet known by many in their own region. It is all relative. Celebrities may be in the picture a lot, but that does not secure their success nor their happiness. The local heroes or today’s celebrities or the forgotten ones of tomorrow.

Those working hard in the shade, all those unknown by many may be trying to make something of their life, and perhaps many of them are more successful in reaching their goal. Best is that they all try to be happy with what they have and can get and not loose their faith in their dreams.

Disclaimer – Proceed only if you do not believe in “Everything is lust and mirage (Sab moh maya hai)”.

We all know how we are born (I know, they forgot to wear the protection), but for a moment let’s think about the “why” part – the meaning of life.

I don’t know if you remember it or not, when you were a kid, elders used to ask “what do you wanna become when you grow up?” and we used to say – Doctor, engineer, lawyer, bus conductor, blah blah. And the answer to the question changed with time. But one thing always remained constant – whatever it is, we just want to be successful. So the interim conclusion is “The goal of life is to be successful”. Success is something that everybody wants in life, but what is success? What are the parameters to measure success?

I have listed few…
