Juliet.

I aim to please you.
I desperately needs you.
I hunger for your love.
It is just lust at first sight.

I’ve been longing for you.
Let me whet your appetite.
Seeing you makes my nature rise.
You are everything I need.

Your body is deliciously sexy.
Your lips are devilishly delicious.
What a lustful temptation
You got me love sick.

Why kenyans (Africans) don’t like local TV programmes.

Media industry for a long time is stagnant in Kenya. Media owners put various effort which bears no fruit. We can’t make excuses. Some claim that we were colonised late in the 60s. That alone isn’t sufficient. Talking of which we were together economically with a country like Brazil. Trust me, Brazilian telenovelas are popular than our own programmes in the very country we are in. I took a research on my 100 friends. I asked them why they enjoy foreign content and you’ll be surprised by the truthful reasons they gave. These are some of the reasons why we kenyans don’t enjoy our local contents.

1.creativity.
To be honest, this is true. Rarely do content producers in Kenya express creativity. Infact most of the programmes in our national television are copy cut of programmes abroad, mostly from the United states. Those successful shows show some originality. A good example is the Churchill show. (check it out on YouTube)and the rising genre of comedy like the bull’s eye and others. Any upcoming show producer: consider what’s is done by Churchill.
2.quality and abundance.
The quality of the shows being aired in our Tvs are pathetic. Between, there’s no variety. I have never watched a sci-fi clip on any programme. The so called romance isn’t really nothing other than wordings. Video quality is no better than a phone camera. Only a few air 1080p and above quality videos. After watching a series by Fox or China films, you won’t again waste your time on our screens.
3.passion.
I’m talking about interest in your doing not faking. That’s the core reason why Johnny Depp will never be compared with our local actors. They go through acting schools so they know what it entails to act. Passion isn’t in our programmes alone but also in music. When you watch foreign films, you experience and feel as the actors are contrary to our own where you can easily tell that this is acting. In Kenya if a character die you don’t feel the pain but tell me how you felt when the prison break’s Michael Scofield died and Elizabeth of The blacklist. Good content alone isn’t enough without good actors. Don’t choose an actor because you know him /her but because she’s capable. Rarely do we watch videos and clips on YouTube except for a few who are blessed with WiFi in their homes. This is the number one way of promoting content. Watch, comment, share.
4.Theme variances.
A good programme must show variations in themes a thing absent in our shows. There has to be variations from love, hatred, romance to conflicts,break ups and so on. Many don’t always ask why game of thrones always rates higher. This is because of variations in themes and not just that, there has to be uniformity. House of Cards is also another fantastic show in theme variation.
5.Exposure
For a successful programme the writer, the actor and the producer have to be exposed I.e have adequate knowledge for its development. If it is romance, we want to see romance. If it’s hacking, we don’t want to see any conflicting ideas with what happens in reality. Kenyans won’t watch our local romance show like pendo and concentrate on Brazilian telenovela because of the love element portrayed on it.

A few african countries have considered this elements and are making progress. Kenya should embrace the same. A country like Nigeria has worked on almost all element and their accent has made its application in Hollywood films.

Be that lady

image

Being a lady is something like a favour. Because you won’t be required to provide, protect or work hard. The only thing maybe is love. I’m not a lady but I have sisters and interacts with lots of ladies.
  The world tend to give a lady a lot of definitions. From curved hips to rounded Buts. I don’t have a specific defination that covers all women. All I know is that the way you’re that’s the true lady. Embracing the positive self is all that matters.
   Those aside, there are some distinctive traits that separates that lady you see around and THAT LADY.
The lady I’m talking about are a few in this world. If you think you qualify, read keenly the below traits.
  Be that lady that prays. That sounds easy, you do it everyday. What I mean is prayer for enemies, an example is that man that broke your heart or that stalker you don’t want to see in your sight.
  Be that lady that loves mum and dad.
Loving parents is very important to ladies. Rarely do ladies love their parents dearly. I’m not talking about that lady who despises her parents. That lady is she who will cancel a date and get time to hanging around with mum and dad.
   Be that lady that has a purpose. Be the lady that can figure out how to make income. Don’t be just the lady that takes the life as it comes. Be the lady that tries by all means to shape her own destiny. Don’t be that girl that relies on boyfriend or husband for majority of things.
  Be that lady that truly loves. The lady I’m talking of here isn’t one who wants to have every man so that at the end of the day the pocket is full. I don’t know the perfect term to brand them. Be that kind of lady who loves herself. Know that you have a great body that is suppose to be taken care of.
  Be that lady who has a mentor. We’re not robots or machines. There are a times when we get faced with trouble. Having someone close who you can trust is the perfect solution. Have someone 1000 times better than you not your best friend. I insist.
  Be that lady who networks. Being social is perfectly good for a persons well being. The kind of networks you create determine greatly you’re next move in your life and career. Be a lady who don’t waste chances on potential networks.
  Be that lady who don’t waste a minute. Time is of essence. Probably a cliché, but still some need repetition for the basics to sink. Your time isn’t to be wasted. It can through having talks that should have ended long ago. But this doesn’t mean that fun and social time are wasted time.
 
Now you know. If you think I never captured some traits that that lady should have be free to leave them at the comment section.

First lady.

Tears rolling.
Full moon glaring.
The frogs croak.
Winds blowing.
Skin biting cold.
One girl for sure.

You make me complete.
All birds of the sky chirp.
Because of the secret emotions.
The power of your touch
Heals all wounds in my heart.
A strawberry kiss from you
Makes my mind boil
With “when next” question.

I dragged you into this.
I never meant to place you here.
I believe it’s true.
A second long hug
Leaves me with blank stares.
How was it over?

Love caused all this.
Endurance is over now
Action at best is commencing.
How long will it last. Forever.

Nights come and pass.
Juicy dreams
Ends never wished for.
Ripe is your body.
I will always adore you.

Be that man….

Being a man is something really complicated. Definations vary from an individual to an individual. The fact that you’re are an adult doesn’t make you a man… Just  a reminder, Be that man… not just a man. There are things that make you an ordinary man while still there are those items that make you that man. First up,my Dad has always been my role model, he defines a man to me. He once told me that collins I   don’t need you to be just a man… look at me… do you the difference. Since then I got interested in the details of his life and I got surprised by his lifestye.
   Be that man that wakes up at 4 or 4:30 in the morning. Why is this so? By waking up this time you add an additional 2 hours on your normal day. The people who said that great things happen in the morning were not stupid. For the past few months, I gave it a test and I got so happy with my progress. I enjoy every moment throughout the day. And I even get an opportunity to watch the sun rising and birds chirping. The two additional hours can be devoted on the thing you like like reading, writing, exercising or even vocals. Do something outside your normal day routine.
    Be that man that sleeps at 10 or 11 pm at worst. This is because by sleeping early you wake up early. You get enough sleeping time. Actually a research shows that worst choices /decisions are always made after this time. This is not the time to worry about the happening of the day.
    Be that man that reads atleast two books every month. Fact known to all of us,the one thing that sets an ordinary man from a distinct one is in the quality of books read. Books not only help in self improvement but also learning and having a different perspectives on happenings in the society around you. It’s from books that you get to know the logic behind people’s stand on a particular issue in society. I insist on atleast two. If you find reading difficult then try the audio books.
    Be that man that remembers God in every undertaking. I didn’t mean to offend anyone. Depending on the believe you hold, remember it. For Christians because I am, remember to pray every morning after you wake up and before sleeping just thanking God for mercies granted during the day. It’s difficult to believe but God really works a lot if you you let Him.
     Be that man that never gives up. Giving up is a defining trait of cowards. No man will like that branding. If you decide to do anything, don’t quit until you’ve it. Consider changing the means if one is not working. Don’t listen to anyone once you’re on because the best advice you’ll get is you can’t. If you take that in your mind, then prepare for consecutive fails.
   Be that man that respects women. For long, gender inequality and violence has been a debate. Some men still believe that women are incapable. Not true, there are just up to task as men, in fact others are so smart for many men to match. Everybody is capable of doing whatever the thing they set their mind of doing. Never allow anyone to underestimate your ability.
    Be that man know for a positive reputation. At all times,as a man,guard your image. Act professional, smart and intelligent. There’s nothing bad as man being stupid. Even if you’re one, you can fake smartness.
   A lesson learnt,a lesson shared. End of my story, till next time.

Top 10 tips to succeed in any business (For bloggers,bloggers,freelancers and youtubers)

image

Success in business can be a very difficult thing. Majority of people fail to get where to start. Its never difficult,the only thing you probably need to get rid of is fear of starting. My most inspirational quote when it comes to doing a thing is

Always be a success seeker and never a risk avoider.

Straight up to my tips.
1.Passion.
Passion is really an important thing in any doing. Do the thing you love and you’ll never work any day. For the lovers of Ted talks,the domineering factor in all the talks by each speaker always revolve around passion and love for self. Don’t force yourself to do something just because you want money. Do it because you feel contented and passionate about it.
2.Motivation.
Look around where you’re coming from those who have succeeded in your passionate field and give them a tour. They are always a great source for your motivation. Ask how they managed to reach there. Accessing them may be difficult but as it is always if you are serious you’ll never lack an option. Even if all it takes is to wait for them in an elevator, do it and utilize the two or three floors difference to convince your motivator that you’re worth talking to.
3.Knowledge and reading.
For success you must be willing to seek what it entails. Reading nooks is my #1 recommendation. Read books of success in your field. It’s from book that we acquire knowledge. I understand that reading in 21st century is difficult but we have kindle books from Amazon that you can easily read at your pleasure.
4.Mentors.
This is the recent finding I came a cross. Spend 33% of your time with people 10 times better than you. These are your mentors. They’ll always make you uncomfortable. The successful people we have like Bill gates, Jay Z,Aristotle the great,Mark zukerberg all had people who were mentoring them. Take away: Go look for a mentor.
5.Have a plan.
Every successful business starts with having a very wonderful plan. Have a plan for your undertaking. Plan is like a prototype of your whole journey in that activity. Good planning leads to no mistake. Plan well and stick to it. Do an analysis of the field you’re suppose to explore,lay out your strategies,objectives and mission.
6.Focus.
Don’t be distracted. Stay focused on your passion. People tend to lose focus mostly after the first fail. The first fail is always a mistake. Focus will drain in motivation and determination. You must focus on it as much as you want it. Focus will create an imagination of success. Just imagine the feeling you’ll have if you succeeded in your dream. Imagine the feeling president Obama had in achieving his dream of being the president of the most powerful nation.
7.Treat other people well.
Success is mainly determined by your reputation. That one thing you are known for. If it is blogging,you tubing or even freelancing, are you known for honest comments,do you share or do you even honestly like. Success isn’t about competition. We are not in a race ,we built one another that’s why we are called a society or a nation. The moment you start getting jealous of something is the very first moment you start failing.
8.Know your audience.
They’re also called customers. One thing for sure is that they are always right. Their interest always dominate. Take a thorough research to understand them and do all it takes to satisfy their interests. How do you treat those who comment and like your items/posts?Do you comment back?
9.Rewards and give away.
Your audience will love them and it will always encourage them to visit your business or website. It will motivate them to talk about you with their friends and in the process you’ll also be getting new visitors. Launch challenges and reward the winners. It can be something as simple as who shares your blog or business the most.
10.Originality.
Don’t copy paste post from one blog to your blog. Don’t transfer an idea from one business to your business. Copying  only shows that you’re not an expert in your field. You don’t have any expertize at all. Be original in your content. Originality still goes to your passion in that you’ll never be ignorant in your field of interest.

I believe that the above tips can be applied in any field and sharing will hugely make a difference in your neighbors thinking.

Just the fact that it is difficult to do doesn’t mean you cannot do it.

Do it and share if relevant to you.
Don’t forget to follow if you got something because more is coming.
