You were born with a great gift
A unique and rare treasure
You were born with a lot of potentials
You were full of promise
Much expectations were on You
Many looked up to You
Many expected the emergence of a giant
The gift You were given
Was for the betterment of humanity
Was for changing lives
Was for solving problems
Was for impacting lives
Was for inspiring and motivating those around
Was to be used to serve others
Was to be used to inspire souls
The gift was to be used
In love
In harmony
In a kind and good heart
To help the poor and less privileged.
To inspire lives
To unleash other potentials like You
You started your journey quite well
You used your gift well initially
You helped the poor
You inspired souls
You unleashed many giants
You brought smile to many faces
Soon enough
You became well respected and loved
You were celebrated by many
Your gift indeed made You a Hero
You were looked up to as a mentor
Your life became a model for others
But soon enough things began to change
A new Enemy set in
This same Enemy has destroyed many great men
Before You
You welcomed this new enemy
You were ignorant of its destructive ability
Your attitude changed
You distant Yourselves from the Poor and Less privileged
You gained so much power and influence
The power corrupted You
You became a dictator
Rather than a servant
You deviated from serving
You became a commander
You were rarely seen
Many cried to You for help
But you turned deaf ears
That new enemy diminished your influence
People distant themselves from You
You oppressed the poor
People were dying but you cared no more
You set about selling your gift
To the rich and wealthy
You entertained the rich
While the poor suffered
Your focus shifted from man to money
Your influence diminished rapidly
He who gave you the gift
Was angry and disappointed
He regretted giving you the gift
The deed has been done
Sooner than expected
You were dying
But no one cared
Suddenly you lost the gift
Some one else replaced You
That enemy rejoiced
As it has finally destroyed a life
A potential
A giant who was brought down
The enemy was successful
It destroyed your life and destiny
It truncated your purpose
We should all avoid this enemy
Its name is PRIDE

Another major prerequisite for emerging a champion is to embrace and face your fears. Look fear straight in the eyes and overcome it. We all have our fears which may be fear of failure, fear of taking risks and fear of never trying something new. Every Human Being is afraid of something, we all have our fears but it is only Champions that sum up the courage and face their fears.
Many people are afraid of trying something new, or charting a new course, we all love to stick to the status quo or remain in our comfort zone. Only Champions can sum up the courage to venture into the Unknown.
The fear of taking risk is another type of fear. People are scared of trying things in which success is not assured. Taking calculated Risk is better than taking unnecessary risk. Taking Calculative risk sets you on the path of becoming a champion. One thing with taking risk is that you never achieve a win/win situation, rather you achieve a win/loose situation and your chances of emerging victorious is 50/50.
Another type of fear is fear of rejection, nobody wants to be rejected and ridiculed by people or the public, everybody loves to be appreciated. But the truth is that it is impossible to please or to be accepted by everyone, not everybody are happy that You are champion, not everybody are happy that You are succeeding while they are failing, after all they never know what You have been through to become a champion. Shun those who reject You and work with those who accept and appreciate You. Never make rejection cause depression for You, after all that is the nature of Humans and the world we live in nobody can be fully accepted by Everyone no matter how good You are.
Fear of failure occurs when people fail to act based on their fear of failing. But failure is an inevitable and necessary part of success, not an opposite of success as it is popularly believed by many. Faith is the opposite of fear. He who has faith can always overcome fear. Many Great Men that ever lived were  great failures like Thomas Edison who was one of the greatest Inventors of all time described Himself as one of the greatest failures of all time, He said He failed 1000 times.
       “in becoming a Champion, failure is inevitable “
Fear has two meanings which are;
F- Face
R- Rise
  “our greatest glory is not in never falling,
  But rising anytime we fall”- Confucious
According to Franklin Roosevelt, the only thing we have to fear is fear itself.
He who fears to fail is a failure already
If you do not do the things You fear, the fear controls your life.
Don’t allow fear to limit what You can achieve, there is a treasure at the other side of fear overcome fear and become a champion today.

Violent Extremism is becoming a major cause of concern in the world today especially in Africa. These so called Extremists have claimed many lives, they kill innocent citizens all because they want to exert their religious rights to the detriment of others.
Over the last two months in Nigeria, Muslim Extremists have killed many Christians all because they are fighting for their religion, first it was in Kano where an innocent Trader told some muslim men to stop praying in front of her shop which she paid for and this angered the muslims in that market who attacked, killed and slaughtered her neck like a goat. This is the highest order of barbarism and savagery. She has right as the owner of her shop to chase out any unwanted visitor but this is was not okay with the Extremists who felt that they have right to pray and perform their religious rites anywhere. That is so absurd.
The Kano incident was still all over the news when we heard of the murder of yet another Christian woman who was preaching and doing her early morning evangelism somewhere in Abuja and yet these Extremists were not comfortable with this and it warranted for her murder. She was brutally butchered like a stock fish and these people have no remorse. After all, she has her freedom of speech and expression. If she was disturbing them, they should have reported her to the relevant Authorities and not by taking laws into their hands. This is so disheartening.
Another report also summoned of some muslim youths numbering about 200 who attacked, scattered and destroyed a Catholic church because it held  service on friday which was an official praying day for muslims. This made these Extremists to scatter and destroy a church. Because friday is your prayer day does not stop others from practising their religion on that day.
That is not all, one can even recall the various sharia riots that took place in kaduna in 2001, 2002 where many Christians lost their lives, even in Jos the same trend is happening.
These violent Extremism is also a Global phenomenon as the activities of various terrorist Groups like ISIS, Al Qaeda, Hezbollah, Hamas, Boko Haram attest to this. One can trace the foundation of all these madness to the 1804 so called Sokoto Jihad in which Othman Danfodio championed.
With all these facts on ground, Nobody can convince that islam is not a radical religion, we have heard continuous talks from muslim clerics who claim that islam is a peaceful religion but yet people are killed daily in the name of Allah, churches are destroyed, christians are killed daily, even in the World at large, Christian Nations are attacked daily, check out the latest Terrorist attack in Nice France which led to the loss of 84 lives.
The most intriguing fact to note is that upon all these attacks, christians hardly retaliate, they continually fall victims of Extremist attack. Can we  just imagine how the world will become if christians decide to retaliate, if they decide to form Christian terrorist Organization, the world will simply become a theatre of war where there will be no victor or vanquish.
I strongly appeal to all muslim Clerics and faithfuls Worldwide, that if you wnaat to really convinve me tha Islam is a peaceful religion, then look for a way to stop all these acts of Extremism, preach to all ypur fellow muslim brothers and sisters to stop fighting fof Allah and that if Allah is trupy a god, He shoupd fight for himslef and not act cowardly.
