Emotional Intelligence 1.0

People are not their behaviours. A person's behaviour can change from time to time not necessarily as a result of an inconsistent character on his/her part but largely due to an altered state of mind.

You'd react differently if someone scratched your car after you just received news that you won a N350million contract, than you would if you just heard news that you lost your job!

Happiness, anger, joy, sorrow, excitement, depression, passion, tiredness, stress, boredom etc are all various states or emotions we've experienced at one time or another.

Be careful of what state of mind you're in before taking a decision. Never make a promise when you're excited, never make a statement when you're angry.

Observe the H.A.L.T. sign. When you're Hungry, Angry, Lonely or Tired, you're in the danger zone and at your most unresourceful state. Proceed with caution.

Acting impulsively today can only lead to regret tomorrow. Managing your own emotions is the true freedom we humans have over animals.

Why Pastor Goodheart Ekwueme Resigned From House on the Rock Church in Abuja

I have been in pains!

If you follow me on Instagram, you will notice, I put up my pastor and coach's picture last weekend because I was heart broken.
He is Pastor Goodheart Ekwueme, the outgone (as much as I hate to use that) resident pastor of my local assembly in Abuja. I and all those who knows him, are going to miss him soooooooo much, it hurts.

Jenny Chisom's 12 Codes of Conduct for Men That Rivals Any Male Code

It's been a tough past week so I am grateful for Sunday heralding a new week.
I have been burdened to create a Code of Conduct for members of the League of Extraordinary Men (LExM) on Facebook. So while I couldn't attend service, I sat down and wrote this down on my note pad, then typed it.
This came in a bid to begin to restructure the group to ensure it is serving the right purpose and the right men.

Violence Against Men, Mnombo Madyibi and The VAPP Bill

Quite some fuss has been on about this man in picture MnomboMadyibi who was allegedly hit with a bottle of wine and also suffered attempted suffocation using a red and white teddy bear. But as expected it did not get as much attention like if the switch was fixed (the experience being that of the woman).
We must know that if men keep being treated like non humans, even the violence against women we usually fight for, will only increase astronomically, since after all a woman must live and find her fulfilled being married to a man or at least living and being in relationships with them.
