Download My Life Sentences – A True Story for FREE

Hello! I apologize for taking a little too long to post something! I have been doing certain things (other side projects) and following the progress of my country’s election [Kenya]. I hope everything is going good for you.

Today(starting Wednesday 3/6/2013), I am going to give my book away for FREE on Amazon. I have been waiting for this for a while now and I figured I should do it now and then extend my reach to other platforms like smashwords and Barnes and Noble. So here is what I am going to do:

If you own a kindle tablet, an android tablet, a smart phone, or any other type of gadget that accepts applications, then you are all set. Oh, wait, I have to also mention the fact that you need an appetite for true stories (like the nearly 10,000 others who have read the book already). I normally tell people to read the reviews first: like these two I grabbed from Amazon:

my-free-book-giveaway

You can also read more reviews by visiting my Amazon page before making your decision.

When you are done reading the reviews, you can grab your copy by downloading it to your device (including your computer if you don’t own the above mentioned tablets). Here is the snapshot of the book:

You can download the book by clicking on the above image or using this download link:

If you run into problems while trying to do this, please notify me and I will be more than happy to help you. If you would like to share a link on Facebook or any other social media that you use, please know that I will truly appreciate. That is all am going to say for today. I hope you find this book inspiring.

Thank you!

Quora – The partner that never disappoints!

A friend of mine recently introduced me to Quora and I dismissed him at first. I quickly looked at the sample content he shared with me and moved on to the next email I was supposed to read. It took me a while to realize that I had made a mistake.

quora

Here is why I was missing out on some priceless information during the days that I was not using Quora: The real experience, the best answers you can get from real people, the idea that you can ask a question anonymously and get what you need, the fact that it is free for all and much more.

Assuming you have a really personal question that you cannot publicly ask someone (face to face), just hop on to Quora and within a few hours, you will receive answers. Think about anything, technology, business, life, politics among other subjects, you will not be disappointed! Instead of wasting time on  sites like Facebook or Twitter (oh no, I know you are not wasting time, sorry), Quora puts things to perspective.

There are certain questions that most humans ask themselves. Queries about life, what to do when your wife is spending two hours at the store while you are waiting in the car or what to do when you are 35 years old and feeling like crap. Most often, you will notice that by just noticing that you might have wasted so much time in your life, you have taken the first step towards self-awareness!

So, let me make this easier for everyone by shortening my post and giving you a minute to pay a visit to Quora .

Disclaimer: I have no affiliation to Quora whatsoever. I am just a loyal user whose life has been changed by the great content generated by Quora. The fact is, having the right information is not enough. Taking action is what matters. Put the two together and you will never be the same again!

Thank you.

Get Out And Vote – Voting Rights

Hi everyone,

Aren’t you glad that the election season is just 48 hours away from its end? Think of it this way: thousands of hateful commercials and attack ads. We are already watching too many fashion and car infomercials and now, every minute does not pass without hearing ‘I approve this message‘. It seems every side of the isle will say anything they can get away with and hope that the undecided Americans will buy that crap.

Now, the reason why am urging people to go vote on Tuesday or on any day before that as long as your state allows early voting is this: Not all people in this world have the freedom and right to vote. Heck, women are still, in other countries, fighting to overcome this obstacle. So, if you have that right to vote, exercise it. Most people ignore such events as taking part in elections and then later they complain after whoever is elected screws them up. The best to do is get up and cast that vote.

The most amazing part of freedom is the ability to vote for whoever you want without being forced. That sure smells good right? You see, one thing that breaks our hearts – and if you are not heart-broken at any time, good for you; when our votes seem to mean nothing, have no impact at all. What is the point of voting? Remember Al Gore and Bush? If you are a Kenyan, remember what happened in 2007 election? It gets messy when politicians refuse to concede defeat. (One west African leader once said – there are two options for us “We either win or we win“. That is not a typo. What he meant was that if he lost, he would not agree to any defeat. People died because of that evil-minded dictator.

Thank goodness, America is not that kind of nation. So, again, go vote and express yourself. This election is crucial as far as where the nation will be in 2013 and years to come.

I have tried to be neutral as far as who is better when it comes to leading this country forward. Good luck and I hope that we all have a fabulous week.

Thank you and please remember to vote or sorry, I meant subscribe to my blog and drop me some comments!

NB: All these are my personal opinions and the decision to vote and who to vote for are personal and important!

Why You Should Make It In America

Hi everyone, I hope you are doing great or perhaps better than the day before. Today, am going to point out some of the things I have in mind and particularly those that explain why you should be able to make something happen in America. Don’t get me wrong, you might give an argument against it or for another nation and I respect your opinion.

Most of us have read, heard or experienced the wildly known American Dream and honestly, sometimes it turns out to be a totally different animal to face on your own. Whether you are an American or not, I am going to share some of my own reasons why you should make it in America and I will repeat, they are my opinions and so, read them at your own risk (although there is no obvious danger resulting from it).

  • If you are the kind of foreigner that knows little about it, well, you are in for a treat. I definitely do not want to sound like some kind of a traitor or sissy for saying this but I will say it anyway. Most of us are not looking for freebies, and that is definitely the spirit you need if you want to achieve something anywhere on earth. If you sit on the couch watching the Jersey Shore on television, then you are just taking the world back. If you get off your couch, you can do something worth doing.
  • Quite often, I hear people complain about how there are no jobs and stuff like that. Really? You see, when you don’t have a job to do, make it a full time job to look for one. What about that huh? That is why America is a place where you can start from nowhere and end up somewhere. If you loose your job today, seriously search for a new one, you will find it. I am not just giving empty praises here, after all, no one pays me to say this.
  • Obviously there are other stumbling blocks to success, and that is independent of where you are. Sometimes, it is the governments and other times, yourself. Consider someone who knows very well that he or she is not ready to buy a house yet. Instead of waiting a little more, he/she jumps straight to it without thinking. When the banks come knocking at the door for mortgage default, then they start realizing that they made the wrong decision in the first place. American dream gone awry. Think first. Save, then spend!
  • Look around, if you find another place that pays Software Engineers the highest salary in the world, call me maybe, and I will see what we can do about it. Trust me on this one, I know the rent is so darn high but still worth it. If you work hard, just hard enough not to kill yourself, you will succeed. That is why I truly believe in hard-work.
  • I am not saying everybody should pack their bags and fly to the States. No. Maybe my message is not even meant for those who are not here. Maybe it is meant for my neighbors, or for myself.<3. In simple words, sometimes we overlook what we already have around us. We often look far away for what we think we need and yet we could as well look into ourselves and see how surrounded by possibilities and opportunities we are. No one will force you to work hard. No one will change how you view things. You can only be the change you dream of.
  • Finally, I must say this with a fervent heart, that we all have a role to play in this world. What is your role? (Shakespeare: ‘The world is a stage……’). If we keep blaming others for our failures, how will that help us make it anywhere? If we cannot make it here, how can we make it anywhere else? Think about how fortunate you are and then do something about it. Exeunt.

I really don’t like writing too much. I should definitely stop here. I hope you have a great day, a day filled with insight and hope. A day like no other. A better view and perspective of tomorrow. You know that you own your destiny, defend it. Goodbye.

The Cost And Value Of Freedom

Image

Hi! Today, am going to write about something most of us(including me) take for granted: freedom. There are so many types of freedoms of course but I will focus on what July 4th means the United States of America and what independence day means to other nations. That subject is vital enough to be, well, history. What do I think about it? Let me share my thoughts.

I have come to learn and believe that freedom, as you might have found out or read is not free. If you are lucky enough to be free today, someone, you may or may not know, fought for it years ago. Maybe you are still fighting for it but I know the ultimate goal is to win it. The endless question in my mind is this: are we really free today? Tell me what you think.

The path to freedom is long and winding. It is rough and sometimes or most often filled with blood. One thing am fascinated about is war movies. It is sad that the aftermath is death and destruction but what they teach me is the cost of freedom as well as its value(don’t get me wrong here, I think most wars are evil but sometimes necessary). I often ask myself what role I am currently playing when it comes to modeling a freer universe, a place free from dictatorships, a world without tyranny, hate, slavery, wars, corporate greed, enmity and so forth. If that was possible, perhaps the only struggle for freedom would be from our inner selves.

Sometimes I look across the road and see people walking peacefully, talking and doing what makes them happy. It makes me rethink a lot of things. The question of whether they know that other people cannot even walk across their streets without fear of death or not is hard to answer. In America, people sleep soundly – be it at night or day. Every time they hear an explosion, they know it is a tire blowing up by accident or the obvious fireworks on the 4th of July. In other places where freedom is out of reach and a dream yet to be turned into a reality, the only type of explosion they have lived to see is that of a bomb blast or a grenade going off and people dieing.

Are we taking anything for granted? Maybe or maybe not. It remains to be seen whether the whole world will truly be free. The path to freedom is not smooth. We all have wishes, don’t we? I do! I also have dreams. I once in a while feel like I could jump into the boat and save it from sinking. But, like most others, I get discouraged by what is going on around the world. The obvious lack of leadership. Maybe one day I will actually do something about it, meanwhile, I will keep trying my best.

I will end here for now. Meanwhile, let us ask ourselves what freedom really means to us. If we can live without any kind of fear, shouldn’t we be thankful to those who work day and night to protect us? I think we should appreciate their sacrifices. Besides that, let us do our part in building a freer world, one step at a time.

My final word is this: Let Freedom reign. God bless the world.
