BOY CHILD.

Well, when Congress is half women, then I’ll be concerned about males. There are numerous initiatives worldwide seeking to empower the girl child and women as a whole while the boy child, son, brother and man are  less privileged.

It is high time we reversed this trend otherwise the boy child and consequently the men will be an endangered species,though not, girl child in turn is rapidly suffocating the boy child.

Dear brothers, if you are not careful, you will be sponsoring peoples who are investing while you remain poor. These ladies of nowadays are using their money to buy plots and lands building houses, investing in stock. They have long term insurance policies, they are investing in business and you will be sponsoring their nails, hair, pizzas, fuel, birthdays, etc.t goes to serious investment. 

Meanwhile you cannot even buy a plot. You have no investment to your name. They will finish your money that you struggled to get and when they get their own salaries, it goes to serious investment. 

Do you not always wonder how come she works but she is always broke, always asking you for a little money for hair, she is  actually not lying, she is actually broke. She just bought cement and paid other building expenses. 

We do not need to remove every obstacle from boys lives or rescue them from everything hard. Our boys need to understand what it is to work hard, face troubles and deal with adversity. Of course, we can support them, encourage them and pray for them but we must let them face real life. However, I am deeply concerned about a generation of very lazy, carefree young men who are not taking up the mantle and providing for their families.

 We love you as a person, as an individual and as God’s perfect creation.

We love you, period!

4 EXERCISES TO HELP YOU FIND YOUR PASSION

Finding out what you’re passionate about can be frustrating. From when you are 18 until you are around 25, you will probably go round in circles trying to figure out who you are. Everybody talks about how they love what they do and how one of the greatest keys to success is to find your passions, then follow them. So how exactly do you find your passion? Here are a few exercises I spotted on entrepreneur.com that I had to share.

EXERCISE 1 – REVISIT YOUR CHILDHOOD. WHAT DID YOU LOVE TO DO?

  • Make a list of anything you remember enjoying as a child.
  • Think about whether you would enjoy it now.
  • What can be translated and added into your life now?
  • How can the things you loved doing shape your career choices.

I for one remember how to loved to work with my hands. I liked to make mud cakes, and shapes intricate worlds with plasticine. I also liked to draw. Today, I can confidently say I am passionate about art and I love a fun DIY project. I hope to one day selling a painting for KES 100,000… right now, I’m just working on that.

EXERCISE 2 – MAKE A CREATIVITY / VISION BOARD

  • Get a poster board or cardboard box.
  • Put the words “My New Business” on it
  • Create a collage of images, articles, quotes even poems… basically anything that inspires you to work towards something.

When you surround yourself with images of where you want to be, who you want to become or what you want to create, your awareness and passion for it will grow. As you continue to collect parts for your vision board, you’ll start to notice anything missing and figure out ways to fill the blanks.

EXERCISE 3 – MAKE A LIST OF PEOPLE WHO ARE WHERE YOU WANT TO BE

  • Study people who have been successful in what you are interested in pursuing.
  • Take note of people who have been resilient while other people in the same field gave up.

Study them and figure out how they remain successful.

EXERCISE 4 – START DOING WHAT YOU LOVE WITHOUT A BUSINESS PLAN

  • Do what you love, even if you haven’t figured out how to monetize it.
  • Test what it might be like to work in an area you’re passionate about.
  • Build your business netwrork as you go along.
  • Ask for feedback. It will help you create a proper plan.

Just start. If you don’t do it now, you never will. You don’t have to have something well structured. You don’t have to have investors or a huge client list already.


Now go-forth and conquer your fears, whatever they may be. You can make the best out of your situation, as long as you identify who you are and ways to utilise your gifts for your advantage.
