The American Dream!

 

I read a story this morning on Facebook about a Nigerian lady who left Nigeria for the United States through the Green Card Scheme. Prior to her Diaspora experience, she was a successful trader in Nigeria. However, her expectations of a beautiful America flowing with milk and honey were not met upon arrival.

She was shocked that there were no provisions of work by the US Government. She thought with the Green Card, the Government provides you housing and work upon arrival. But to her dismay, there was nothing of such. She ended up working in a fast food eatery for 3 years with a meager paycheck that was barely enough to sustain her. Continue reading

My Focus Word For Today Is Dilly-Dallying: 

The worst that can happen to a PERSON is not taking a decision. It’s a disaster for anyone to live life through indecisions. Are you always torn between what to say, what to do, how to react, how to move, what to wear, what to eat…? Do you have a big problem weighing options endlessly and tossing between indecisions? When you keep dilly-dallying, you waste too much precious time. It is harmful to be in that state of hesitations and aimless wandering. Continue reading
