10 Rules for Effective Prayers for Extraordinary Results

Reading through Norman’s book, he outlines 10  rules for effective prayers for extraordinary results and you better know them for a success story in your life.

  1. Set aside a few minutes every day. Do not say anything. Simply practice thinking about God. This will make your mind spiritually receptive.
  2. Then pray orally, using simple, natural words. Tell God anything that is on your mind. Do not think you must use stereotyped pious phrases. Talk to God in your own language. He understands it.
  3. Pray as you go about the business of the day, on the subway or bus, or at your desk. Use minute prayers by closing your eyes to shut out the world and concentrating briefly on God’s presence. The more you do this every day, the nearer you will feel God’s presence.
  4. Do not always ask when you pray, but affirm that God’s blessings are being given, and spend most of your prayers giving thanks.
  5. Pray with the belief that sincere prayers can reach out and surround your loved ones with God’s love and protection.
  6. Never use a negative thought in prayer. Only positive thoughts get results.
  7. Always express willingness to accept God’s will. Ask for what you want but be willing to take what God gives you. It may be better than what you ask for.
  8. Practice the attitude of putting everything in God’s hands. Ask for the ability to go your best and leave the results confidently to God.
  9. Pray for people you do not like or who have mistreated you. Resentment is blockade number one of spiritual power.
  10. Make a list of people for whom to pray. The more you pray for other people, especially not connected with you, the more prayer results will come back to you.

5 Things you Need to Kickstart your Freelancing Career

Image Courtesy of Google

Hello guys,

You must have been surprised after realizing I lost quite some money online. Well, the experience was the best teacher and that’s why I want to share with you the one and twos on what you need to kickstart your freelancing career.

If you have been working on your regular job from 8 a.m to 5 p.m, this might appear to be difficult for you and almost impossible. But wait, nothing could be further from the truth. You can still juggle between two jobs with proper planning, commitment and timely communication.

I do freelancing as a part-time job while still maintaining my daytime job. It is only wise to quit your daytime job when your sure your freelancing career is stable, and it is already paying you way more than what you make in your regular daytime job.

So, what do you think you need to kickstart your freelancing career?

First on my list would be a desktop /laptop with good internet connection.

When I began freelancing 5 months ago, I had no laptop of my own and was using my mother’s mini-laptop. I could as well locate places with public wi-fi and spend there the better part of my day working on freelancing projects if I am not in my regular job.

Do not be cheated you can freelance with your smartphone. It is close to impossible and even if you were to do it using a smartphone, your work is bound to be poorly done without proper proof-reading.

However, you may be having a laptop but no access to internet connection or a public wi-fi utility. One more comfortable way to work with your own internet connection is to subscribe to Safaricom or Airtel internet bundles and press the wi-fi hotspot button on your smartphone to make the internet accessible by your personal computer or laptop.

The upper side of using Safaricom internet bundles is that it is very efficient compared to Airtel. Conversely, the packages get easily depleted with annoying warnings of your bundles being below 2Mbs. I always shift between the two networks depending on convenience and urgency of my work. Airtel bundles last for a longer time but are slow compared to Safaricom bundles.

A Proper Chair and Desktop Table

Really? Is this even a need in the first place? But when was the last time you sat straight in your chair while working on your computer.  In most cases, you are always seated in a slanting posture or you seat leaning forward.

I need not remind you that for the safety and good health of your spinal cord, you better spend some bucks on a good table and seat for your freelancing career.

Have a Cash Back up

Having some cash with you to keep you going when kickstarting your freelance career is of great importance. You will come to realize that freelancing is not like a regular job where you get paid every end of the month, however, this may be subject to your own arrangement with your client.

Despite these, you also need to realize there are dry spell seasons in freelancing. It gets to a point where you bid for job endlessly with little or none forthcoming. It is at this point in time that your saved coins will keep you going and get you paying the bills.

Have an External Computer Storage

What happens when you wake up one day to find your computer crashed with all the important files and a client’s assignments.

As much as your internal memory may be large enough like let us say 1TB, you want to ensure that you have an external back up just in case your computer memory losses all the data stored.

Enroll for a Freelance Course and Learn one or two Technicalities about a Computer

I understand you may be a pro or skilled in a particular task or responsibility but no one is ever knowledgeable enough to stop learning. For you to be able to kickstart your freelancing career on a higher note, you are better off enrolling for a freelance course like article and SEO writing or transcription depending on your area of interest. Instead of starting off from square one like a novice, a freelance course will help you jumpstart your career as an intermediate or expert writer with well-paying writing and transcription gigs. We offer a freelance writing course for beginners an affordable fee, Click here for more information.

Some of the above-mentioned life changes might cost you money but you would rather have them and launch your freelancing career with a bang than start off behind the rest.

Let me know your thoughts and comments below.

Until next time esteemed reader.

How to Find Strength in Tough Times


You have heard the saying that when the going gets tough get tougher. If you have ever undergone a hardship period in your life, you know that it is not very easy to overcome. That is the time when only a handful of people you know in your life may pick up your call. At worst, you might be shunned by friends and walk as a lone ranger.

Tough situations could occur in our lives because of many reasons. Some could be self-inflicted, some could occur as a result of accidents in our lives or human error. Tough times could also occur because of reasons or situations beyond our control like the death of a loved one.

Examples of Tough Times in Our Lives

What do you think could make life tough? Here are some examples of tough times in our lives:

  • When lacking basic needs or one of the basic needs in your life
  • Loss or lack of a job
  • A failing business.
  • When unable to pay your debts
  • A failed relationship or marriage
  • When suffering from a chronic disease
  • When facing death or the loss of a loved one
  • When feeling weak and helpless
  • Feeling depressed
  • Feeling unworthy with no sense of achievement

Whether you have undergone a tough situation in your life or not, one thing we have to accept is that the world is not a very safe and fair place to be. Some break the law and walk scot free while others get convicted. The poor get poorer as the rich get richer.

However, your attitude towards your tough situation in life is what will determine whether you will come out of the tough situation tougher or weaker and on the verge of death.

How do People Handle Tough Times

People handle tough times differently. Some ways in which people handle tough times include:

  • Drinking themselves silly to forget their problems
  • Taking narcotics such as cocaine
  • Living in denial
  • Crying
  • Avoiding company with people and staying a loner
  • Calling a close friend, priest or pastor
  • Staying moody and getting angry at everybody
  • Praying
  • Committing suicide

While most of the ways listed may offer you some relief over a hardship period in your life, not all will work for your good. Actually, some ways will sink you deeper into tougher times than you already are. So what way or ways can only work for our good when facing tough times in our lives? Accept that you are limited as a human being and depend on a higher power. In the case of a Christian call upon the living God.

Action Steps

  • If faced with a situation where you feel unworthy and unable, tell yourself you can do all things through Christ who strengthens you (Philippians 4:13)
  • When lacking something in your life, speak to yourself about the word of God regarding his provision over your life. (Phil. 4:19)
  • When fearful because of your enemies, remind yourself of God’s protection in his word. (Psalms 23:4)
  • When facing defeat, know that the Lord will lead you to triumph. (2 Corinthians 2:14)
  • When lacking the faith to trust in his word and his promises over your life, tell yourself that the Lord has allotted you a measure of faith.(Romans 12:3)
  • When feeling depressed, know that the compassion and mercy of the Lord are there for you. (Lamentations 3:21-23)
  • When feeling weak know that God is the strength of your life (Psalms 27:1)
  • When facing death or loss of a loved one, have trust in God. (Prov. 3:5)
  • When in sickness or ailing remind God of his healing in his word. (1 Peter 2: 24)

Well, if your beliefs about God are different, this action steps may not work out for you but you could give them a try. Confessing his words in your life will not make you feel better instantly, but will be help you find strength in overcoming tough times in your life ultimately helping you to overcome the tough time.

Tough times could just be the keys we need for a happy life.

Are you going through a tough time in your life right now? How are you handling it?

Why Age is an Important Factor to Consider in Women’s Fertility


Image courtesy of Google

Picture this, you are a woman in your early 20’s, busy pursuing your career ambitions. As age beckons, you want to settle down with your life partner and raise a family. Well, better not delay the transition to a marriage and family. Research over time has proven that a woman’s fertility depreciates with age.

How is this so? When women are born, it is common knowledge that they come with all the eggs they will ever have in their lifetime. However, as they age, their eggs also decrease not only in quantity but quality. You want to ensure that you give birth while still young and space your childbirth at reasonable and well-timed intervals.

A woman who delays giving birth increases the chances of not conceiving.  Worse still, is the fact that you increase other pregnancy-related complications such as a miscarriage or delivering via a caesarian section.

On the contrary, you could be a woman of a faith and a firm Christian believer who believes in the Biblical Sarah giving birth to Isaac way beyond her menopause. I do respect your beliefs but allow me to dispel the myth that a woman could give birth at any age.

A woman who starts giving birth at the age of 32 has a lower chance of conceiving compared to a woman who is 30 years or way younger. At the age of 32, there is already a significant but gradual decrease in a woman’s conceiving power. When a woman clocks 35, her fertility is on a downward spiral. By 40 her pregnancy potential will have declined by half.

According to research, a woman at age 30 has a 20% chance of conceiving each month as compared to a woman at age 40 who stands at a 5% conception rate monthly.

Pregnancy and birth risks to consider in older women:

  • Older women are most likely to give birth via the caesarian section as compared to younger women.
  • Genetic abnormalities and congenital disabilities are high in children born of mothers at an old age.
  • A woman at age 40 stands a higher risk of miscarriage than a live birth.
  • At the age of 35, a woman is 2.5 times more likely to give a stillbirth as compared to a younger woman. At 40, a woman is five times more likely to experience a stillbirth as compared to a woman at the age of 35.
  • Other birth-related complications such as placenta abruption that occurs when the placenta separates itself from the uterus lining. However, this incidence occurs in a significantly low percentage of women.
  • Placenta previa is also another congenital disability to consider that could affect women in old age. It occurs when the placenta covers the cervix partially or sometimes completely. This condition is said to affect 1 in 200 women. The situation could be dire for old age mothers.

That said, note that there are some catalysts to this congenital disability in women. It’s more common in women who may have a uterus surgery or gave birth through a caesarian section.

The bottom line

To a woman below 30 years of age, you want to avoid the stress that comes with giving birth beyond the age of 32 years. Giving birth at a young age has numerous benefits. Giving birth at a young age means you are fertile and at a prime age to conceive and give birth to healthy kids.Conversely, to a woman beyond 30, it’s never too late. There are several cases of women who have given birth to healthy children at 30 and beyond. However, you want to make sure that you do not make the situation worse than it is already.






Lose Weight Faster with Our C9 Product


Hello guys,

I hope you have woken up to a brilliant morning. Personally, I have. I remember once when traveling to work, the driver of the vehicle I was traveling in had tuned on a popular radio station-Radio Jambo.

One of the radio presenters popularly known as Gidi in the favorite morning show –Upatanisho decried the rising number of women in Kenya adding abnormal weight in the recent past. Actually, he suggested that this trend seemed to be happening mostly among the married.

Well, this got me thinking hard and scratching my head for answers. What are some of the factors that could make women add weight at a higher rate? Some of the reasons that came to mind include:

  • The use of contraceptives such as the contraceptive pills and injections
  • Eating junk food
  • Passive lifestyle as a result of too much office work or simply laziness.

It should be noted that matters regarding the addition and loss of weight do not only affect women but cut across both genders.

As for the above-mentioned factors, they all boil down to the kind of lifestyle you choose to put up with. For instance, chances are high that if you are used to eating food prepared by most local eateries, you could be consuming junk food. The reason behind it is that most local eateries prepare their food using saturated fats. Not wanting to delve much into the nit and grit of saturated and unsaturated fats, I will say this: it is commonly understood that saturated fats( Chipsy & Kimbo products) are solid at room temperature while unsaturated fats tend to be liquid at room temperature. Examples of unsaturated fats in our local supermarkets include Freshfry and Elianto.

I’m not in anyway on an internet marketing campaign to kill the hotel business. Besides, whether you choose to eat frequently at eateries and hotels that is up to you. However, my advice is you are better off cooking your own food than eating out. It is cost effective too.

Eating out also increases the chances of eating junk food that is considered unhealthy and low in nutritional value.

Here is a list of junk food you will find in most fast food restaurants and eateries:

  • Most takeaways and fast foods such as sausages, fried chicken, potato chips, noodles.
  • Soft drinks such as Fanta,  Coca-Cola, milkshakes
  • Ice creams
  • Snacks e.g sweets, biscuits and cookies, cornflakes. hot-dog, crisps, popcorn, French fries.
  • Carbonated beverages that contain high sugar levels. More so, there are those drinks that are sugar-free but are made sweet using aspartame which could be harmful to your health when consumed over time.
  • Creamy cakes
  • Beef burgers

I do not know much about you but I’m sure you know yourself well to know whether you have added weight in the recent past or not. Here are signs you have been adding weight in the recent past:

  • Your waist circumference has ballooned.
  • You have high blood pressure
  • Simple chores and activities get you breathless
  • You snore in your sleep
  • You are always tired
  • You are always hungry or craving for food
  • You have stretch marks
  • You are avoiding physical activity of late. You would rather drive a short distance than walk.

If you identify with the above-mentioned signs then you are the right candidate for our Clean 9 product. Visit our product page here live your contacts and we will get in touch ASAP!!
