Story: The Tale Of Three Trees

Once there were three trees on a hill in the woods.  They were were discussing their hopes and dreams when the first tree said, "Someday I hope to be a treasure chest.  I could be filled with gold, silver and precious gems.  I could be decorated with intricate carving and everyone would see the beauty."
Then the second tree said, "Someday I will be a mighty ship.  I will take kings and queens across the waters and sail to the corners of the world.  Everyone will feel safe in me because of the strength of my hull." 
Finally the third tree said, "I want to grow to be the tallest and straightest tree in the forest. People will see me on top of the hill and look up to my branches, and think of the heavens and God and how close to them I am reaching. I will be the greatest tree of all time and people will always remember me."
After a few years of praying that their dreams would come true, a group of woodsmen came upon the trees.   When one came to the first t…

4 Tips To Help You Become Free Of Every Addiction 

Here are four (4) tips that have been proven time and again to rid anyone from any type of addiction. 1. Determine to be free
The first step on your journey to being free of your addiction is actually taken on the inside. You have to develop a will, find a reason to quit whatever addiction you’re into. This helps to keep you focused on the task of getting free; as you constantly remind yourself, “I’m doing this because..” ; “I’m trying to quit this addiction for __’s sake” 2.

6 Live Saving Tips To Survive A Plane Crash

So you have a few minutes to decide what to do before a plane crash? Excellent! I say 'excellent' because you have a viable chance to save your life, an experience that has cheated many others from survival. 1. Remove everything sharp from your pockets. Loosen your belt and remove your tie or scarf. Remove high heeled shoes. Take glasses off for landing so they don't fly off so are available to help you see your way out if you need them. 2. Know where your closest exit is and a backup for the type of landing... some exits can't be used in water landings. Count the number of rows to those exits and try to identify any protrusions that you might use to find them if the cabin is full of smoke. 3. Stay in your seat until instructed. Do not open a door or window exit without direct instructions from a flight attendant. 4. Have a piece of cloth (preferably damp) to assist in breathing if there is smoke. If there is smoke during evacuation, stay as low as possible. 5. Follow…

How To Detect And Remove Calcium Carbide Or Pesticides From Fruits

So I heard it yesterday that Nafdac has prohibited selling of fruits such as banana, mango and so on ripened with calcium carbide (Cac2).

Harmful effects of Calcium Carbide
1. It can cause cancer.
2. Dizziness and stomach pains.
3. Sleepiness and mental confusion.

How to detect Cac2 on fruits

1. Light a match stick near the fruit, if it sparks and continue to burn rapidly, note that there is Calcium carbide powder rubbed on the fruit.

4 Work Place Politics You Should Know About

Today, I want to share with you just four out of the many workplace politics and how you can manage them so you don't get burnt.  - The Politics of Degrees/Institution
In this kind of politics, people form cliques according to the kind of University they attended or what they graduated with. In this kind, people who graduated from private universities always move and do things together while those who studied abroad also form cliques. Even those who graduated from government owned institutions go as far as forming cliques according to the ranking of their institution according to National University Commission or any other recognized bodies. And when these cliques are formed, individuals tend to do things to favour members of their cliques which is why qualified staffs outside cliques are robbed of things like promotion into key positions.  - The Politics of Numbers 
You will be lying to yourself if you believe that most staffs in your workplace are not engaging in company racket…

6 Simple Tactics To Grow Wealth

Realize the need to save money and become rich
If you think that nobody can save money and grow rich, then you haven’t heard about Warren Buffet. He is considered a “Savings Billionaire”. As a financial advisor for my clients, I tell them that you can’t plunge into the muddy waters of investments without having backup savings plans. There are thousands of ways to save money, but there are few ways to save money and become rich. If you think that saving money is just for poor people, calculate how much time you’ve been a working class person, then you check how much is currently in your account balance. Do the numbers tally? If No, so who is really the poor person? A lot of people forget the first rule of business, which is “Pay Yourself First”. Majority of people spend before saving, which is actually a dangerous path to thread. It should be exactly the opposite. Avoid the Banks
Did you hear that right? This is one of the simple ways to save money and grow rich. The banks offer you jus…

3 Ways To Charm Your Way To The Top At Your Workplace

- Study People 
The step to a successful charming adventure is to know the makeup of the people you intend to charm. Not all charms will work for everyone. For example, you can't charm me with alcohol neither can you charm me with flattering. I'm my own motivator. Some people can be charmed with flattering, some can be charmed with respect (by doing yes sir, yes Ma to them), some can be charmed by your beauty or handsomeness while some can be charmed by your intelligence. You should be able to study people at your workplace most especially those at the top. Every human has one charming ability or the other. Some people's own are their innocent looks while some can charm you with their pseudo Humility. You should understand what works for them and use it against them.  - Understand Your Ability 
Naturally, I look very calm and reserved and I know that as one of my charms, what's yours? Yours can be your dedication to things. Naturally, you always find yourself giving y…

Top 5 Secrets Of First Class Students

NATURAL BRILLIANCE: There is a minimum level of natural brilliance that is required before a student can think of First Class. I do not intend to put limit to one’s capabilities, for I believe like most people that impossible is nothing. However, realistically speaking, that is an exception to the rule. Most First Class students have a track record from lower levels of education. That is the first foundation. 2, THE POWER OF DREAM: Most first class students dream. I do not mean metaphysical dream, I mean the Luther King definition – vision, forward-looking, even though awake. In secondary school I had a friend who once looked up and said, ‘the last time someone made an aggregate 6 (i.e minimum of 6 A1’s in SSCE) in this school was 12 years ago, I want to be the next’. He made it. Same boy told me he wanted to ‘enter the back of JAMB brochure’, meaning he wanted to be among the top 3 JAMB students in Nigeria (JAMB print at the back of the brochure for a year the names of the best 3 …

Despite what a lot of advertising would have you believe, mouthwash actually isn’t all that great for your dental hygiene.It disturbs the natural flora in your mouth and can even be drying, thus promoting the growth of the very bacteria you’re trying to kill!In fact, you want to nourish and promote a healthy balance of bacteria in the mouth for great breath, cavity prevention, and even overall health.Ever heard of taking probiotics for gut health?
