Real People Have Real Challenges

Cette petite phrase en anglais, résume la leçon tirée ce jour : relativiser. C’était à l’occasion de la formation reçue au GICAM ( Groupement Interpatronal Camerounais) dans le cadre de son partenariat avec le Bureau International du Travail (BIT) pour la promotion de l’entrepreneuriat féminin.

En effet, les personnes réelles ont de vrais problèmes et les affrontent. La vie est une somme d’expériences, de difficultés qui nous façonnent et en face desquelles, nous avons toujours le choix.  Continue reading “Real People Have Real Challenges”

Un peu de générosité vous fera du bien

Observer ma fille au réveil chaque matin, c’est recevoir une belle leçon de générosité à l’État brut. En effet, lorsqu’elle se réveille la plupart du temps, elle est pleine de joie. Elle gazouille dans son lit, joue avec ses peluches, comme disant merci au créateur de lui avoir offert un jour de plus sur Terre.

Pendant ce temps, je l’observe, je souris et tout comme elle, la générosité m’habite. Plutôt, j’essaie d’être habitée par la même générosité, une envie de faire plaisir et de partager de la joie tout simplement parce que je suis vivante. Malheureusement, ces instants ne durent pas.

The point was to let out the ideas that I had.  Continue reading “Why actions speak louder than ideas…”

She Read- Edge of Eternity- Ken Follet

Edge of Eternity is the 3rd and last volume of the Ken Follet’s Century Trilogy. I have already shared  here my review of the 2nd volume and I was longing to get to the end.

This was finally made possible by the opening in Douala of the well-known shop “FNAC” where i was able to find English and French version of the book. I happily chose to read the roughly 1000 pages in English, and once more dived into the magic history world of Mr. Ken Follet.

5 Keys to Define and Achieve your Priorities

Fake it, twist it, do it until it becomes second nature. That is the tough road  I learned to choose to define and achieve my priorities

It sometimes so easy to dream awake of who you want to be or where you want to go. It is much more tough to make it happen and to strive for it consistently every single day. Some may say: how come? “It is all about passion”, some others would think. And they would be right but as I have already told you, passion is everything but the new sexy.
