Hard work, Integrity and Sincerity: Key to success.

For me, Well-Being is the ultimate success in life. A person who reaches a state of being comfortable; healthy and happy in life has a wholesome life.

Hard-work

It has been said over and over that hard-work and perseverance is key to success. However not everyone that works hard and perseveres is successful, depending how people measure success.

“Everybody wants to be famous, but nobody wants to do the work. I live by that. You grind hard so that you can play hard. At the end of the day, you will put all the work in, and eventually, it will pay off. It could be in a year, it could be in 30 years. Eventually, your hard work will pay off.”- Kevin Hart

Integrity

Hard work alone without smartness and strategy is futile, for instance, some work very hard but shockingly achieve little. Work with others, be reliable and trustworthy respecting yourself and others around you. Trust is the mainstay of any relationship. To unfailingly achieve the desirable goals, one requires consistency of actions; principles or standards including openness; methods; measures (be patient and flexible when you encounter unexpected obstacles); expectations and outcomes. Taking responsibility and accountability of the actions wether good or bad. Express gratitude when others help you. Help others if you can, without compromising your health.

Sincerity

Have genuine honesty in whatever you do. Listen to your heart, connect with your inner feelings; thoughts; desires paying closer attention to your beliefs then act accordingly. Sincerity is vital in any organisation it helps in building trust among the organization as well as the employees. Making fruitful relationships in the workplace is one of the significant parts of work life.

A YouTube video depicting a sci-fi like city

First and foremost, weather it sounds over ambitious and ridiculous but the Arabs are renowned building remarkable buildings turning deserts into desirable places to live. Turning a wilderness into a living wild. Thanks to their oil wealth however it is important to diversify the sources of income similar to what Dubai has done, turning a desert into a vibrant livable place which attracts not only the tourist but also some foreign investment.

⁃ Saudi Arabia unveiled designs for its ambitious urban project. The concept of new futuristic cities is not new at all. Initially launched in 2017

⁃ it plans to build this linear glass walled city, a hydrocarbon-free economic zone

⁃ It’s not the first time it has been proposed to build something like this, in 1956 AMerican Architects Miles Graves and Peter Enzyman came up with a similar idea, to create a linear city between Boston and Washington. However turning these ideas to reality will be a remarkable achievement for Saudi Arabia and the kingdom.

– Back in the day there were some radical Architects like Le Corbusier. Whose Radiant City concept was criticized for lack of human scale and lack of connection to the surroundings. The criticisms seems harsh however it’s better to coin a rubbish idea, it could spark the development of better concepts.

Criticisms

⁃ First and foremost how is the city going to manage some polluting activities like waste management in order to maintain the zero carbon environment.

Economic Challenges

⁃ this is an over ambitious project, before the COVID-19 pandemic the overall costs was projected to be $500 billion, the project might not even be finished by 2050 as a result the costs will astronomically go up. That said the entire project is predicted to cost 1 trillion.

Technological challenges

⁃ Technology is susceptible to changes and evolution over time.

⁃ The biggest technical problem that Saudi Arabia could face is said to be the reliance on foreign skilled workers.

Headfirst Thrills on Wheels Rap.

I fly I feel the rush adrenaline kicking in my veins

If I stay home loneliness is my only friend

I fall in the showers, look around me there is no buzzer I shout no one can hear

I put my shoulder to the will, I drag along

I try so hard, blood sweat and tears I drag myself out of the mess

Keep on fighting I tell myself never give in never give up.

You can achieve when you believe and eventually I rise up

How I managed to get up I will never know

It proves there is a God if you need a reason.

Truthfully I wanna live like a prophet Irónically i stumble and struggle

With God on your side everything is a doddle don’t dawdle

If I stumble I keep humble and keep rumblin’ first bow down to the deity a being greater than you and everything else x2

Get out of the way get out of the way punk otherwise you will get trumped but

I ain’t no killer like Gina Miller I stand for justice

Elder Rex is comin through wearing the Amour of God from the fiery darts

As I leap into the unknown i shall fear no man but God, the God of Abraham Isaac and Jacob.

The God of LMN Lihi Moroni Nephi in alphabetical order

No weapon before me shall prosper Accident killers you never killed on purpose

You is a keyboard gangster like Trump punk you get trumped I ain’t no monkey’s uncle.

I always keep ma mind on the WOW, (Word of Wisdom)

If I stumble I keep humble and keep rumblin’ first bow down to the deity a being greater than you and everything else x2

I have come to show off when the show is on I always show up to a show down

Undefined and undefiled, unruly and orderly an oxymoron. bitter sweet at the very same time.

But don’t dont get it misconstrued im no wolf in a sheep skin Im straight Edge

I always keep ma mind on the GL, (Gospel Library)

My platitudes, attitude and latitude got me living lonely wandering like a loner

Don’t delete dilate, dilate don’t annihilate

Through the rain & pain always paint a positive portrait

Never give up keep your head up, your chin up and stiffen up your upper lip.

Learn to cheer don’t smear, prevail amid travails

Unlawful aweful

Baleful, baneful, frateful

Obstreperous, rapacious, tumultuous

Raucous, rebellious causing uproar in the upper row thats what I’m about

Happy Easter

I want me an Easter egg, cooked good

On Good Friday, with a hot cross bun hung from the

Kitchen ceiling, ready to feed the needy.

On Good Friday, the Lord cleansed & rinsed away our sins.

In March I learnt of the fasting of Lent,

Eating the simnel cake, a tasty treat topped with eleven symbolic marzipan balls,

Representing 11 disciples with balls.

Long Covid

Long time coming, it has been

Long covid, I had, in March

Longer than the summer days, with covid

Loneliness is the only longtime friend u need

Longing for food, my taste is long gone

Long laborious chewing is how I spend my

Long days, testing negative but the effects Lingers on.

You support many families poor/ rich, directly and indirectly for you are the biggest employer in the UK. You are the heart beat of the economy, health is wealth. Better yet the healthier the society the stronger the workforce. Happy 73rd birthday #nhs.

“TBI upsets life on multiple levels: physical, psychological, social, and even spiritual. TBI affects the roots of who we are — our ability to think.” From my point of view it also affects how process things. I completed and passed a Masters degree which was more academically and mentally challenged. Yet practical driving tests are more difficult and an anathema for me.

Spearmint: Zumbani- some say it cures COVID-19

Spearmint is a species of mint Mentha Spicata native to Europe and southern temperate Asia, extending from Ireland in the west to southern China in the east. It is naturalized in many other temperate parts of the world, including northern and Southern Africa, North America & Southern America. It is used as a flavouring in food and herbal teas.

The mint is used to make Moroccan mint tea by simply boiling the leaves and adding sugar. I was born in Southern Africa, Zimbabwe were the mint is called zumbani, though it wasn’t widely used to make tea it was used for medicinal purposes to cure fever. To a lesser extent there Zumbani tea was brewed when I lived there. The tea has a refreshingly minty flavour and it’s caffeine free. It is high in potassium key for regulating blood pressure. Also it is rich in magnesium and iron.

The tea is widely used in Arab nations and the Northern African. The same regions are not badly hit by the pandemic. Maybe the spearmint reduces the severity of the pandemic.
