Do not allow the Fire die


Sometimes in life, we feel depressed and discouraged in one or two projects we are working on. Also, we may feel bad when the result we have been expecting is not coming forth. It even appears as if nature hates you totally.

The mistake-riddled life is much richer, more interesting, and more stimulating than the life that has never risked or taken a stand on anything- David MC-Nally.

In life, we sometimes blame ourselves for the silly mistakes we made in the past. Some at times felt like committing suicide because of their past lives which were full of mistakes. One may say, “I would have become a very rich man if I have placed my priorities right ten years ago”. I blew it all. What have I done? What was really

Self Comparison: Can it really do You any Good?

Sometimes in life when things are not going as planned, we start comparing ourselves with others. This in some occasions usually results to severe headache to the one comparing his or herself with the other. The one you are comparing yourself with may have attained greater height than you quite alright but I do not think it will change anything much. All you need is to put more effort and devise new strategies for effective result.

Extravagant Lifestyle: What do you get from it?



In today’s meeting in the office, it struck my manager to talk about youths who spend money unnecessarily as if they have the whole money in the world. According to him, some youths lack the ability to plan well with the money they earn from the work they do.

I want to go to Abroad: What is your Base?



It struck me this evening to put this on my blog. Most time when I find myself in the midst of young people like me and the discussion of traveling abroad raised, I see so many perceptions of youths.
Some paint the image of a foreign country, the United States, as a place where people go and pick money off the ground. It appears as if the country is a place where there is money tree that people can pluck from at any time they want.

The Best is yet to come-Advice for the Youths



Picture by Uzochukwu Mike Okwuagbala


In the lives of many young people, there is usually a state where confusion shows itself in full nature. In this point in time, many who are in their youthful ages think nature hates them. Some who happen to be Christians sometimes turn their backs to their creator as they have concluded within themselves that there is nothing like God. This and many other wrong decisions come in because the young feel weak.

A Determined Youth: A Difference Maker



Sometimes when I go to work, I usually go with my Laptop. In fact, that has become my companion. The reason why I move with the device to office on many occasions is to recharge the battery because there is usually power failure in the part of the country am living in, and there is always power supply (through electric generator) in the company where I work. Sometimes, people see me as if I am the only one that has such kind of device and some of my co-workers in the company sometimes pass some side talks concerning such behaviour of mine.

Importance of Youth Empowerment

Importance of youth empowerment


When I was still a kid, I did not fully understood the level of hard times many youths are passing through. Then, when I saw young men and women grooving in their clean cars, I felt happy and thought it was easy for them before they established such achievement. As I was growing, I began to found out the reality about the life you and I are living.

Some press companies all over the globe through their publications on poor youth empowerment have been lamenting on its bad side, which youth unemployment is not an exception. The media is doing the much it could but yet, the problem persists though some impacts have been made.

Youth Unemployment: You can determine Your Category

Source: Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD)

It is true that youth unemployment is one of the challenges the youths all over the world are facing today. But I want to make it clear at this point; it is in your hands to choose the category you want to find yourself. If you want to be among the people being affected, it depends on you. If you in the other way want to be in the category being employed, all is your decision to make. So my friend, the choice is yours.


Being employed as used here does not really implies that you must work for someone. It means you keep yourself busy with something that will add money into your pocket. You can be self-employed or work under any establishment.

Look at the Future Glory as a Youth

Photo Source: Hacker Space
During my undergraduate days in the university, I faced many challenges. These challenges include both financial and social challenges. Sometimes, I began to think far when I had no money at hand to take care of my expenses as a student. These thoughts sometimes landed me into severe headache. Whenever I recover, I kept moving. But in the course of those disturbances I was giving myself through thinking, I never gave up. I always beat my chest and said to myself, "Uzor you will make it because God is not dead". He is living and He sees all the challenges you are passing through. That kept me going.

Here, the topic is restricted to making youths better rather than addressing the larger number which makes that a broad topic.

In this article, we will be discussing few basic things youths need to know and do to live better. Also, at the end, a reference book which is written by this same author is presented for further study.
