How To Overcome Fear.

There is a natural tendency in every human to become anxious and
fearful, particularly when confronted with an unpleasant situation.
There are different kinds of fear, and a lot of people fear different
things, which is like a phobia, that is the fear of a particular
thing. Fear comes from diverse sources. Some people becomes fearful
when they're jittery about the future, which is fear of the unknown,
some have phobia for other things they can see around them. Some fear
falling from height, some have phobia for large volume of water, some
have phobia for different things. There is another kind of fear
created by satan himself in the mind of people. That is the fear of
God, when we go against his will like Adam and Eve in the garden of
Eden. But this isn't the kind of fear i'm talking about, as it can
only be overcomed when we always in right standing with God. But in
this post, i'm talking about fear of the unknown and phobia for the
things we see but are yet to experience them. A lot of people have
allowed fear of the future and phobia for different things to hold
them back from succeeding in life. Fear is like a mirage, something
that looks like it's there but when you go closer, you discover it's
not, and the more closer you go, the farther it gets from you, that is
fear. 'FEAR' means;false experiences appearing real. Fear are false
experiences that appears to be real, but they are definitely not real.
The only anti-dote to overcome fear, is to become to confront that
thing you're afraid of. If you've got phobia for height, try climbing
a storey building, you can start with one storey, increase it to two,
then three and so on, before you'd realize it the fear of height will
leave you. If you're afraid of the future, the only way to overcome
it, is to get out there and start facing your future. Always endeavour
to confront that thing you fear, don't allow it to confront you first,
face it, and the fear will vanish. Another way to conquer fear is to
free your mind from all worries and anxiety. Have a clean mind, always
do the right things and be conscious of your mood. Your fears are not
real but you make them appear real when you don't confront them.

How To Overcome Anger.

Every human being has the propensity towards anger. Infact, there's no
one without an iota of anger especially when we encounter some
unfavourable situations in life. Anger is natural in humans because of
the hormone called adrenalin which is produced by the adrenal glands
in our body. However, anger is a major problem in some people because
they find if very difficult to control it. It has become a major
weakness in some people, and has undoubtedly affected their
relationship with others. Uncontrolled anger can be very devastating
because, at the point you're angery, you're no longer in control of
your actions, you'll be acting based on your emotions. You need to
learn how to control anger and probably, overcome the tendency to get
angry. The first step to overcome anger is to, be very conscious of
your mood. Watch your mood very carefully, at the point you noticed a
particular situation wants to make you feel bad, sit down and take 3
deep breathe in and out. Don't rush into taking actions, ask yourself
certain questions like, does this challenge worth my angry reaction?
And before you know it, that anger would had waned and you'd discover
that there's no point being angry in the first place. When you do this
anytime there's a tendency to get angry, you'll gradually be on your
way to overcoming anger.

How To Interest A Woman Rather Than Impress Her.

A lot of men think they can make a woman fall for them or be in their whims and caprices by impressing or flattering her. Sorry, Let me burst your bubbles! You can't get a woman to be at your beck and call by impressing her. When you impress a woman, you're only getting her for the short term. The problem with impressing a woman is that, you have to always think of new tricks to keep always keep her interested in you. The man who impresses a woman to woo her is a magician or must be one. Since he must always think of new tricks to keep her closer, so what happens when there are no more new tricks to make her feel impressed? But the man who "intrests" a woman is a painter. He paints beautifully that a person stares in awe. And each passing day, it remains beautiful and everyone that sees the painting, knows that it is a genuine beauty. When you interest a woman, rather than impress her, you'll get her addicted to you and you don't need to struggle to keep her close to you for a very longtime. This is because she see's you as being genuine and you also make her feel moderately happy and complete. Now, how do you interest a woman? You can interest a woman by "being yourself" don't fake who you are. You can interest her in the way you talk to her. "Say the right things to her at the right time". "Listen to her when she speaks". "Let her learn new things that can improve her personal, spiritual, academic and career life from you". "Lookout for something special about her to compliment her for". Rather than compliment her on her beauty, which she knows already because she gets a lot of such compliments from different men. You can compliment her on her outfit, her makeup, hairdo, her shoes or the way she talks. She'll appreciate these compliments more, rather than the ones she's used to. The bottomline is to, prove to her that you're different from other men. To interest a woman, always be genuine and be your real self. Endeavour to be the best person you can be to her. "It pays more to interest a woman rather than impress her".

How To Naturally Last 5 Minute Longer During Sex As A Man.

Are you tired of your partner always complain about your quick ejaculation whenever you make love to her as a man? Or you probably feel depressed and ashamed of yourself whenever it comes to having sex with your partner because of your inability to last five minute longer and give her that needed satisfaction and excitement? You don't need to feel discouraged and depressed because a lot of men also suffers from quick ejaculation, but you need to get the right knowledge and apply it to get out of that situation. Sex is meant to be enjoyed by both partners, but a situation where one partner always complains of not enjoying it because of quick ejaculation, it definitely will threaten the survival of the relationship or possibly lead to infidelity if it eventually continues. Studies have shown that women takes a longer time to reach orgasm than men, hence you need to last a little bit more longer on bed as a man to make her have the least sexual excitement and satisfaction. However, some women orgasms very easily, and this entails understanding the physiology of the woman's body and being able to pinpoint what makes her easily reach her sexual pinnacle. Satisfying a woman sexually, does not necessarily mean she must always orgasm everytime you have sex. It means making her enjoy every moment you spend on bed with her each time you have sex. And this cannot happen if you find it difficult to last extra five minutes while having sex with her. Women enjoys sex more when you last longer on bed with them, the more you go in and out for a longer time, the more you build up their excitement until they eventually climax. This is why a whole lot of women cheats on their partner and some will prefer a man who satisfies them sexually, despite how good looking, rich or famous you are. When it comes to sex, women needs the best of sexually active men to satisfy their sexual urge. A healthy and sexually active man is expected to last an average of about 10-15 minutes during every sexual intercourse. But it is very appaling that a lot of men do not even go past 5minutes before ejaculation. If you're one of such men, please take this post very seriously and begin to observe the recommendations i'm going to give, so that you can overcome quick ejaculation. Do you want to conquer premature ejaculation and last that extra five minutes longer during sexual intercourse? If you answered 'YES' to this question, then read on to discover natural remedies you can apply to make that happen. Without being oblivious of the fact that a lot of people have recommended various tips and remedies to premature ejaculation, and some have also proposed various herbs and substances you can take to last longer whenever you want to have sex. Some of them probably worked, and some did not. One important fact you must understand is that any prescription on how to remedy the challenge of quick ejaculation that does not follow some natural rules will never give you a final solution, such recommendations is only for the interim. Which means you must always go back to taking those substances each time you want to have sex. Sometimes, these substances have after effects if addicted to. From my studies and observations, i discovered that quick or premature ejaculation is more or less as a result of the state of your mind and your emotions prior to the real sexual intercourse. It is not biological or natural that you easily ejaculate during sex with your partner. It has to do with your emotions before the act. Hence you need to have a fully developed emotions in order to make your sex life worthwhile. If you always feel very anxious, unduly perturbed or jittery i.e sexual anxiety some minutes before the actual sexual intercourse, then quick ejaculation is inevitable. If you also always allow the sexual imaginations, feeling and emotions to innundate all your thoughts or you get too excited before or during the act, then you'll orgasm very easily because all your emotions are attached. The remedy for these, is to learn to always discipline and control your emotions, have an open mind and avoid getting too excited either before or during love making. Another way you can overcome quick ejaculation is to have sex frequently with your partner in other to reduce the over-excitement each time you want to engage in it. Having sex frequently will make you last longer on bed. The more sex you have, the longer you'll last as your emotions will be adjusting to it. This makes you always be in control and in charge, and decide when you want to ejaculate. Rather than your emotions always dictating when you're to orgasm, until you begin to be in charge during sex and not allow your emotions to control you, you'll always find it difficult lasting 5 minutes longer on bed. Different people have diverse opinions about masturbation and some are averse to it. Regular masturbation is bad, but masturbating the right way, holding on when you're about to orgasm can delay ejaculation.

How To Revolutionize Yourself.

Revolution comes through the desire to effect changes, and the need to make life more conducive to live in. It is borne out of the zeal to put things in proper perspectives and bring about positive changes. Wherever, revolution takes place, the result is usually some positive changes that will make things better. Hence, self-revolution is borne out of the burning desire and passion to change from your negative lifestyles, attitudes and habits to the positive ones, that will make you feel happy and fulfilled in life. Without the passion, zest and enthusiasm for change, self revolution cannot take place in your life. You must be tired of your present deplorable state of life, and come to the realization that you actually need a change in your life, before you can revolutionize yourself. This is the first step you need to take for self revolution to occur in your life. Desire a change in your life. Now, lets consider the processes involved in revolutionizing yourelf .First, you must take stock of every aspect of your life, and discover areas where you obviously need a change. Remember, this stock taking process must be whole, and must spread through all aspects of your life, physically, emotionally, psychologically, sexually, in your relationship with people, in your career, academically and in terms of achieving your dreams, you need to discover what always hold you back from achieving your desires. Take stock of your life, discover the appalling attitudes, bad habits misdemeanours, inordinate lifestyles, underdeveloped emotions, lack of self-esteem, poor interpersonal relationships and everything that makes life very uninteresting to you, hinders you from adding value to life, and inimical to others around you. The second point is that, you must come to the conscious realization of the emptiness of your life. You must realize how empty and worthless your life has been with all the negativities that surrounds it. Reflect on your past and compare it with the present, is it really worth it? Has it taken you forward and closer to achieving your dreams? Or has it taken you backwards or kept you stagnant? You need to realize your past and present state of life and ask yourself if it is really the kind of life you want to live. Also ask yourself, if what you're doing presently or your present life's condition, with all the bad habits and underdevelopments, is capable of taking you to your desired destination of living a fulfilled and happy life. Because, whatever you're doing today, will definitely determine what and where you'll be tomorrow. You must make conscious effort to realize how empty and worthless your life has been all the while, which will propel the desire for change in you. Revolution comes as a result of necessity and the need for change. And until you realize that the present state of things in your life is unacceptable and far from being the best for you, you can never change things, and you'll remain the same. After you've realized and recognized how worthless your life has been, and you have the desire to break free from all those hindrances to your success, then, it is time to take practical action steps to revolutionize, re-discover and re-invent yourself. Desire without action cannot produce any result. Your desire for self revolution must be backed up by decision and determination. You must follow the 4 D's of success to able to achieve your desire for self revolution. Desire, Decision, Determination and Diligence are the 4 D's of success. Desire is the first step, which you already have. It is decision and determination that will propel and motivate you to take action, while diligence will produce the result. You must take some action steps to achieve your desire of revolutionizing yourself and effect positive changes in your life. No one will do it for you, you alone must desire it, decide, be determined and diligently follow it through. Hence, this blog is intended to help you achieve your desire for self revolution and live a life that will add value to the world. Always come back to read new posts on this blog as it is updated frequently, touching every aspects of life that affects you.

The Meaning Of Self Revolution.

Revolution takes place in every facets of life and human endeavour. Like the industrial revolution which saw the emergence and the development of the industrial and energy sectors in the 70's and early 80's. This revolution in the industrial sector made the accessibilty of energy very easy in the world, eventhough, the world's energy reserve is dwindling today, coupled with some inherent challenges of climate change and global confronting the entire globe. These challenges had forced different countries of the world to begin to look into alternative sources of energy, develop new sources of energy, especially the renewable energy. However, it was the industrial revolution that gave rise to the discovery of various sources of energy and made energy easily accessible. Similarly, after the industrial revolution, came the technological revolution in the early 90's until today. The technological revolution consequently gave birth to what we call the ICT age and the internet today. It is also the basis for technological development and advancement in the world. And more recently, is the Social media revolution, which is also a product of the technological revolution. It is undoubtedly obvious that the social media revolution has indeed changed and revolutionized the way business is done online, and made connection with anyone in any part of the world easier. As you can see, revolution brings about change and facilitates development wherever it is effected. Hence, Self revolution like every other revolution is intended to bring about positive change and also enhance self development and improvement in any area of life. However, self revolution is distinct from other types of revolution in the sense that, while other revolutions are initiated by some external forces or other people, which you may not necessarily be part of. Self revolution is a revolution initiated and effected by you alone. In this case, self revolution means self re-discovery and re-invention. It means revolutionizing your thinking, your thoughts, your character, habits, lifestyle, actions, sex life, relationship with people, career and everything that makes you a fulfilled and complete human both inwardly and outwardly. Self revolution is a process of re-discovering yourself in other to effect some changes in your lifestyle and attitude. Every human needs self revolution. Just like the industrial, technological and social media revolution, which had brought some changes in the world and improved our well-being, in terms of making life very comfortable for us. Self revolution is individualistic in nature, because it must begin with you before it can spread to others. If we all can revolutionize our lifestyle, attitudes towards ourselves and the environment, our thoughts, relationship with others, and everything that affects us and our environment, then the world will be a better place for everyone of us to live in . You need to revolutionize your thinking and thoughts towards achieving your dreams for it to be actualized, you need to revolutionize how you relate with people in other to have a better relationship, you need to also revolutionize your mind, so that you can move forward in life and break free from every negative things that has been holding you back. You need self revolution to be able to live the happy life you've always desired to live. Without self revolution, you'll probably be not able to achieve your dreams, impact positively on the lives of others and add value to life. If you desire changes in your lifestyle, you must begin by revolutionizing yourself. Please Post Your Comment.

How To Discover The Sleeping Giant Within You.

Are you wondering what sleeping giant you've got inside you? Or you're probably finding it very difficult identifying the sleeping giant within you? Well, you don't have to worry about that, because it is very easy to identify or recognize the sleeping giant inside you, but the difficult thing is waking it up, unleashing, and letting it produce the desire result of climbing to the zenith of success. A lot of people are always conscious of the fact that they've got a sleeping giant lying perpetually dormant inside them, but how to awaken the giant and unleashing it for their quest for success remains a huge challenge, and this has obviously stalled their success and break-throughs in life. But for others, they even find it very difficult recognizing that sleeping giant in them, they try a whole lots of things but cannot really ascertain their real passion, talent or area of direction in life, and they find themselves getting bored when their endeavours are not yielding any result of encouragement to them and they eventually abandon whatever they've begun. This attitude also keeps their success static and they find them-selves always on the same level. How do you identify the sleeping giant in you? I don't know. You're the only one that can know better the potentials that lies inside you. But, it is not enough to recognize the sleeping giant in you, but to awaken, unleash and consistently nurture it by putting it work. But how do you recognize this sleepin giant? Again, i said i don't know. I don't know the sleeping giant in you, but i can only recommend 3 key ways you can use to discover that sleeping giant in you. If you can adopt these three remedies, i can assure you of discovering that giant within you in no distant time. The first important way of discovering that sleeping giant is to, "Discover Your Passion". What is passion? Or what are you passionate about? Your passion is something you just desire and love doing without anyone there to compel you to do it. It is something that makes you happy, feel fulfilled and complete even when no one seems to notice or appreciate you. Your passion is your hobby. Something you're very comfortable with, and you derive fulfilment and satisfaction from anytime you complete the task. It can be Blogging to share knowledge online, writing, teaching people, convincing someone to buy a product (salesmanship), music, arts, ICT and anything you have passion and affinity for, needs to be developed through patience and consistency for it to grow overtime and become visible to the world. This is one way you can discover & awaken that sleeping giant within you. The second is take up challenges, and also welcome challenges. Don't try to run away from challenges coming to you, no matter how great or small they may be always stand and confront them. Because therein, may lie that sleeping giant which will eventually awaken to inspire you to victory. Don't be idle, try your hands on a whole lot of things whether they're convienent for you or not. Because in not being idle, you'll certainly discover something that will be useful to you, and gives you satisfaction & comfortability. Idleness and procrastinations are dream killers and success delayals. And when you discover that giant or great potential in you, put it to work immediately. Don't allow it rest or remain dormant. Consistently develop it through work, work and more work. The last point i want to recommend on recognizing your sleeping giant is to, ask your friends, attend motivational and inspirational seminars by various renowned thought leaders and motivational speakers. This can actually help you to discover your potential faster and awaken that sleeping giant within. However, it is not enough listening to motivational speakers or thought leaders, but you must endeavour to take some practical steps to actualize your dreams. Because no one can motivate you more than the extent you motivate yourself. Also ask three to five of your close friends to write down ten things about you, about your strengths and weaknesses, your character, passion, your attitude to work, infact your temperament. Then evaluate yourself based on their observations, and compare some of their remarks about you. If three out of five of them say the same thing about you, then you can easily figure out the area your strengths lies, which can also awaken the sleeping giant within you. These are my 3 simple recommendations on how you can discover your sleeping giant.

How Nigeria Can Get Her Elections Right.

On March 28, 2015, Nigeria conducted her fifth presidential and National Assembly general elections. After the truncation of the first democratic government of Shehu Shagari in 1984 by Gen. Muhammadu Buhari through a military Coup 'de' tat. Nigeria began to notice what could be regarded as a stable democracy from 1999 when the second electioneering process took place, and since then, it has been conducting her elections and operating a democratic government. Nigeria conducted elections in 1999, 2003, 2007, 2011, and presently 2015. It's important to emphasize that the elections from 1999-2011 were not without hitches and anomalies. The 2015 presidential and National Assembly general elections were not different from previous elections, where there were still some pockets of violence in some states, late arrival of election materials due to logistics challenges and some electoral malpractices. Although, there was a little improvement on the 2015 general election especially with the introduction of a card reading machine to accredit and authentic registered and eligible voters, as a way of curbing electoral malpractices. However, it was quiet unfortunate that there were myriad of complains by voters in various states that majority of the permanent voter card reader machines could not read the voters data on the card, while some machines could not authenticate the fingerprints of the voters. Worst of it, was that the card reader could not read the permanent voter card(PVC) of the president, Mr. Goodluck Jonathan. This development forced the chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission, Prof. Attahiru Jega to rescind his resolve on using the facility. And he later gave instructions to presiding officers in every polling unit across the federation, to embark on manual accreditation in states affected by this negative development. However, there were reports from many states that the whole process was peaceful, and voting was done under a very free and fair atmosphere. Although, there were still some places where violence, late arrival of materials, and electoral malpractices were reported, for instance, in Rivers state South-South Nigeria, where the ruling party in the state and main opposition party in the country, were complaining bitterly and calling for the cancellation of the result in the state. This has always been the bane of elections in Nigeria. Anyone who have been following elections in Nigeria, will know that these things are always expected, and yesterday's election would not be an exception. There are no perfect elections anywhere and it will take some time to get it right. But for a democracy that has lasted for sixteen years, and this being the fifth consecutive general elections to be conducted in Nigeria, one should expect some near perfect elections that at least, will be devoid of logistics problems and electoral mis-normals. Hence, this post is intended to share with you how Nigeria can get her elections to be near-perfect. First, in getting our elections right, elections should be made to be part of our lives. The electorates should be made to understand that election is part of their everyday life and they always look forward to it. There should be enough enlightenment of the electorates on the need to participate and get involved in the electoral processes. The National Orientation Agency(NOA) should orientate and re-orientate the electorates about the principles of electioneering process. The rural people and those who are not privileged to get a formal education should be educated about elections. And all these should be started early, at the inception of any government and not when election is closer. So that people can be fully aware of the importance of elections. The second point i want to propose is that, citizens right and civil education in various primary and secondary schools should be thought effectively, with more emphasis on elections. This will also help the younger ones, and those who will attain the age of eighteen when it is time to conduct another election for a new dispensation to know what they're required to do during the election. My last point, is to the government and the body empowered by law to conduct elections. It is often said that early preparation preceeds good success. It is obvious that majority of the logistics problems encountered during election period is because of lack of proper or adequate preparation on the part of INEC. I was surprised to observe yesterday that an important body as INEC charged with the responsibility of conducting elections don't have enough vehicles of their own to convey their election materials to various states. They have to hire vehicles from road transporters to convey there materials, this is really appalling. The issue of the card readers should have been in place immediately after the 2011 election, and should have been used in previous state elections to ascertain their efficiency.

The world is obviously enriched by the sanguines with their cheeriness and charisma. The sanguines are predominantly extroverts hence, any career or vocation that tends to bring them out and closer to the people will be the best for them. They make excellent salesmen and they are more attracted to this profession than any other temperament. This is because the sanguines are so convincing that they can sell anything to you, even when you don't need it. In addition to being excellent salesmen, sanguines also makes excellent actors, comedians, entertainers and preachers.

Any routine work or career that tends to tie down a sanguine, that requires so much detail, and does not give him the liberty to meet with people bores him. No matter what job or career the sanguines finds himself, it should always give him extensive exposure to people. Sanguines major contribution to life is in making people happy. Now, lets look at the 'Cholerics'. Cholerics are also extroverted like the sanguines. But they're very disciplined and serious people. The cholerics are workaholics, action-packed and purposeful. They are doers, hence, any career or profession that requires leadership, motivation and productivity, & does not involve so much details and analysis attracts a cholerics. They also do well in sales, teaching practical subjects, politics, military service sports and other crafts or vocations. Any job that has to do with too much talking, long meetings, detailed analysis and analytical planning bores a him a great deal. 'Melancholy'. Are you a melancholy? Count yourself lucky because you're the most gifted of all the temperaments, with high IQ. Any career or vocation that requires, self-sacrifice, perfection, creativity, detail analysis, analytical thinking&humanitarian services is best for you. 'Phlegmatics' are the most introverted. Any career that requires meticulous patience and daily routines, planning and calculation, analytical and imaginative mind and not so much of a limelight is best for you.

How To Discover Your Passion And Use It To Add Value To The World.

A lot of people go through life without actually discovering the purpose of their existence. They are like a bird of passage that passes over your head without making a mark. You need to understand that the purpose of your existence is to add value to life by impacting positively on the lives of others. Hence, if you're not adding value to life then you're obviously not fulfilling your responsibility and living up to your full potential. However, you cannot add value to life except you discover your passion and use it to make positive impacts in the lives of others. This is so because you cannot give what you don't have. Therefore, the first step to adding value to the world is to discover your passion in life. Without passion, nothing worth the while can be achieved. It is passion that motivates you to go the extra mile to achieve the extra-ordinary. Now, having made this point clear, the question that should come to your mind right now is: What is my passion? How can i discover it? Every human has a passion for something, but most times, not the passion to add value to life. If you desire to buy a particular car, that's a passion. If you want to build a particular house, it's a passion. If you're attracted to a particular lady and you've been doing everything possible to get her, it's a passion. Anything you crave for that you've not gotten yet is a passion. But this quests do not add value to people's lives and to the world. To add value to the world, and leave lasting legacies in the lives of people, your passion must be people-oriented, aims to improve lives and make the world a better place. For some people, it might be really difficult discovering your passion or what you really want in life, because we're always presented with different choices. Sometimes, you might want to take a particular direction or go into a particular niche or area of life but you soon discover that it isn't the best way to go and you quickly abandon it and decide to look at other areas. Most times, it isn't because you fail to discover your passion, but because you lack focus and consistency in whatever you're doing. It is important for you to know that without focus and consistency in whatever area of life you choose, you cannot achieve your dreams, make any impact and add value to the world. However, for those who find it very awkward discovering their passion, there's only one way you can discover your passion in life and use it to add value to the world. First, you must ask yourself some salient questions. "What are my really passionate about in life"? How can i use my passion to add value to the world? Asking these important question will make you to start looking inwards to discover your potential. For you to be able to discover your passion, there must be a motivating factor, something that drives you to take action. You passion must come from within you, there must be an inner propeller, propelling you to take action, and that is the desire to add value to life. Therefore, what drives, motivates or propels you? A desire to add value to life is the main factor that will help you to discover your passion in life. Discovering your passion in life requires you to take action and get yourself engaged in something meaningful. Laziness, procrastination, idleness and lackadaisical attitudes are the greatest enemies to discovering your passion in life. You must get yourself in doing something meaningful, be liberal, welcome every opportunity. Whatever your hand finds to do, do it with all your might. Ask yourself, what can i do very well. Your passion is something you love doing and you do it graciously without being pushed or compelled. You do it because you're always happy doing it, even when you're not being paid for it, or getting any instant gratification. Your passion can be anything, as long as it adds value to your life and the life of others. Your passion can also be your hobby, or something you're gifted in doing, and you do it so well and better than others. "If you make your hobby your job, you'll live never to work for someone again" Your passion must make you feel happy, complete and fulfilled in life. Whatever you're doing, or any career you choose in life, and you don't derive joy in it, you get bored doing it or you feel discouraged because you do not get any immediate financial reward or compliment, then it's obviously not your passion and you should not continue in it. Hence, you need to still look inwards to discover where your passion lies. The question now is, what are you passionate about? What is your driving force or motivating factor? And how can you unleash your potentials and use it to add value to life? Until you begin to ask yourself these important and heart-searching questions, you may never wake up to the reality of discovering your passion in life, and use it to add value to the world.
