Don't Call It Living Until...


I'm always eager to make people THINK, because I have learned that the MIND is a powerhouse and our Inner thoughts are so essential. Everything starts with that CONVERSATION we have with ourselves. The Self Talk....

So Truth be told, I realised that I only recently started #LIVING for real... before now I was just existing. Repeating the same MISTAKES and surrounding myself with people who added very little or no VALUE to me, because I was the 'fisherman' who always ate the BONE...I would give so much to others first, that I had nothing left to give to myself....Not even self love. And that circle continued for years...until I put myself on LOCK DOWN and channelled the TIME, ENERGY and LOVE towards myself.

Sometimes, we've really got to FEED ourselves some home #Truth, no matter how difficult it is swallow.

Don't live the same day over & over and call it a freakin' LIFE. Geez Sweetie! That's just surviving. Living is actually GROWING, Improving, LEARNING, Evolving & Changing. Not settling... getting COMPLACENT or remaining stagnant. Living is actually loving yourself enough to EXPLORE tangible ways to get BETTER.

Train yourself not to 'settle' with LIFE as it is. You can EXPERIENCE life as it really should be. It's okay to seek more...Don't just settle in who you build relationships with, who you work with, who you learn from or who you teach.

Know that 'success' will not lower its standard to us. We must RAISE our standard to success. Now that's real LIVING!!!

PODCAST: Indian Social Advocate, Virag Dhulia Shares His Thoughts On Abused Men


Did you know that an ABUSIVE wife or partner may hit, kick, bite, punch, spit, throw things, or DESTROY your possessions to make up for any difference in strength? She may attack you while you're asleep or otherwise catch you by surprise. She may also use a WEAPON, such as a gun or knife, or strike you with an object, abuse or threaten your children, or harm your pets. She could even arrange her family or others to attack you. Of course, domestic abuse is not LIMITED to physical violence. Your spouse or partner may also:

#1) Verbally abuse you, belittle you, or HUMILIATE you in front of friends, colleagues, or family, or on social media sites.

#2) Be possessive, act jealous, or HARASS you with accusations of being unfaithful.

#3) Take away your car keys or medications, try to CONTROL where you go and who you see.

#4) Try to control how you spend MONEY or deliberately default on joint financial obligations. Or find several ways to EXTORT money from you.

#5) Make FALSE allegations about you to your friends, employer, or the police, or find other ways to manipulate law officials and isolate you.

#6) Threaten to leave you and PREVENT you from seeing your kids if you report the abuse.

Did you miss the LIVE broadcast of my illuminating conversation with Social Advocate, VIRAG DHULIA  #TNT 018 on #TalkWednesday?:  "Men As Victims Of Domestic Abuse..."

Do you also know that 40% of victims of abuse are actually MEN? A vast majority of men experience every other day, some form of intimate partner violence ranging from Physical Violence, Verbal Abuse (Threat of Abuse) as well as Emotional, FINANCIAL and even Sexual Abuse from their Wives, Female or Gay partners and they rarely report this cases, for fear of being 'emasculated' and mocked...Catch my interesting conversation with one of the founding members of CONFIDARE, a community center for abused men in India. A Merinews Columnist himself, Citizen Journalist in India, 'Television and Media' Social ADVOCATE for Men's Welfare and Author of the book – “The Secrets of Manhood” which speaks about the various problems that men face, as we engaged in some #RealTalk about these different phenomenon and what can be done to encourage more men SPEAK up and protect themselves. As well as the amazing SUPPORT Confidare is giving to victimised men. ( Check them out @ www.ConfidareIndia.com)

10 Ways I Challenge My Mind To Accomplish Real Goals...


Hey Talk-Bugs! I received lots of emails thanking me for sharing my 10 Simple-Mind-Strategy on how I've personally been able to CHALLENGE my mind from being the average DREAMER into an actual goal getter. And lots of my attendees kept appealing to me to extend the FREE access to the video recording so they that could recap what they learned (despite taking notes) Hehehe.

I have even gone on to share my E-Presentation slides, so that they can have these strategies at the fore-front of their minds and go back to it for continuous MOTIVATION. And based on these tips, one of my ardent ABC Talk-Bugs, Sheila has been able to challenge herself to write her first short story for a major competition and has sent it to me to review....another one of us, Yemisi has started her weight loss goals, whilst David is pursuing his music career just from watching the video. I'm extremely excited by the outcome of what sharing my start up story is doing for others....as it motivates me to even ACCOMPLISH more for myself.

So here is the deal.. I've decided to extend my slide to everyone here at the blog. Feel free to SCROLL through the slide and lets see if these strategies will work for you too. Though you might need to watch the webinar video recording to make even better sense of it, because I explain each slide in details using myself and my own initial challenges as the backdrop.. Don't forget to share it with someone...and motivate someone else to go for their GOALS. Remember, we are all here for each other.



Access to the webinar recording is still available for another 48 hours till Friday, 24 July 2015 and I'm putting it up for paid download at THE ALEX OKOROJI ONLINE STORE. So click now to GET FREE ACCESS. I love you for watching.

The Monday Love Memo


During Talk Therapy over the WEEKEND, I told one of my 'Clarity Callers' that he would have to honestly DECIDE if he still wanted to keep on loving a woman who abuses her privileges, takes him for GRANTED and obviously doesn't care about him or his family.... And then he said he couldn't help his feelings. That he was in love with her. So I asked, if he understood that Love is not PAIN, that love doesn't hurt....instead it brings Peace, Growth and JOY. I don't pretend to have all the answers, in fact I'm learning more about love as I journey everyday through life but one thing I have learned the hard way is that... it's only up to us to actually decide 'who or what' gives us Joy or brings us Pain.

WE can only truly say we LOVE someone after we have gotten to learn about a person over time, gone past the "in-love" emotional lust or shall I say 'lost' phase...and can see that person for who they really are, no illusions, no assumptions and yet still make a conscious "choice" to give that person our unselfish, undivided, un-conditional, un-diluted DEVOTION based on stark reality and not our fantasy. That 'choice to love' despite being hurt so many times, despite the uncertainty....is a decision.

And then he asked me "Alex, how can you say that Love is a decision?" My theory is simple. If Love was just a feeling, then perhaps, the bible would not describe love the way it does. Love would be boastful, it would be jealous, impatient, self seeking, it will keep records of wrong doing etc. And to be honest, all these are real human FEELINGS...So when I find people who are able to better manage all these weird feelings. It's because they have somehow made a choice to downplay how they feel and practise some form of active consideration.

Hence the reason, it makes sense to me that God who is Love... shows us the real way to see love and the right way to practise Love, with GRACE. And that's why regardless of our weaknesses and FLAWS, his love for us will never WAIVER because that is his decision, not a feeling!

So when IMPERFECT couples like my parents who have stuck together for 39 years irrespective of their differences, desires, goals, needs, struggles, changes and weaknesses... and yet, still choose to stay together, not because they don't have the option to leave nor haven't considered the thought. But because they understand that love takes EFFORT.

Well, that Effort is a Decision, not a Feeling. In other words we can truly love anyone, as long as we 'choose' to and for as long as we still DECIDE to!

Or what do you think Lovelies? Feel free to share your own thoughts.

Is The Man Freeze A Victim Of Domestic Abuse?


I was reading the exclusive interview granted by On-Air Personality (OAP) of Cool FM, FREEZE about his accusations and I'm honestly not one to judge people on the demise of their relationships. I have said it over and over again. That the institution of marriage is so COMPLEX for our fickle minds and it's bewildering for me, when I see people who used to love each other so much...turn on each other. But hang on, these things don't come from no where. It stems from somewhere deep. So, why am I so interested in this piece of gossip? Its certainly not because I belong to that group of people who don't mind their freakin' business...actually, I'm almost done scripting my musical for a film on domestic violence with men as the victims and I have been quietly sourcing collaboration and funds to film it. I remember talking to my good director friend, John Njamah, last year at the foundation stage and I even approached a few of my brilliant colleagues whom I intend to cast in it. So fast forward to the gist in that Interview. Ehen!

It's not even the content of the Interview that is my focus or the contradictions, some supposed 'superb minds' claim exists... or the part where people say he shouldn't air his DIRTY laundry in public. Okay, if you are up for using the carpet to cover up your pile of dirt...COOL...but be sure that one day it will spill. If you don't EXPOSE it yourself and take the trash out. One day a visitor will help you expose it and embarrass you completely, in the process of offering to take it out on your behalf... just because it STINKS. In other words....I am all for EXPRESSION....I am all for exorcism of one's personal DEMONS. if it will help the person receive closure and feel free.

It wasn't as much as the issues, as it was the battery of JUDGEMENTS and comments on popular news or gossip blogs that tired me out. Reminds me of the conversation I had on radio just last weekend as one of the guests on Whisper's Talk Panel on Rainbow FM (where I shared my views about cyber bullying and social media cat fights). Now looking at this case...with majority insisting his story had holes and he was a pathological liar. In fact 98% of the commentators (mostly women) stood firmly with his wife. And to be honest, that in my opinion is why ABUSE on male victims exist and THRIVE... because no one stands with them. No one believes them.

Before I continue, let me state here that I do not claim to know what happened, I wasn't there and I am not taking sides...because there are two sides to every story. I'm only speaking based on the EVIDENCE that has been presented so far and what my inner mind perceives. Especially since I know what it actually feels like to experience some form of domestic VIOLENCE.

I'll be honest, I also read her public statement and while a lot of people praised it for her MATURITY (Oh I thought it was great as well), still I found it rather odd that it really said NOTHING. Nothing 'concrete' in her defence to address, if not vindicate herself from his accusations except stylishly turn things back at him. (Which is a strategy that worked pretty well) because people always stand with the perceived under-dog and go straight for the attacker. As long as she's saying nothing and he's saying EVERYTHING....it means she's right and he's wrong....But that's just a twisted way to view life. The fact that people focus so much on the obvious and ignore the not-so-obvious strikes me a lot....Why then, have we been blessed with a thinking mind? Or haven't we learned that the truth is BITTER...In fact, the TRUTH will not become a lie, even if no one believes it... and a LIE will not become the truth, even if everyone believes it. Yet I imagine myself publicly defamed or libelled like this before my children, Ehen...I'mma let the world know in that press statement that I intend to sue his sorry ass for all his wristwatches are worth...that's if I don't find it necessary myself to dance in a sweet melodious tet-a-tet with him. (Okay, I give her kudos for her restraint) But a prayer for his soul? Hian! Let's keep it real baby...Name the most virtuous woman in the bible? Even she will have some beautiful choice words for the Nigga mehn,...Leave that thing...This is 2015 AD were she alive today. Hahahah. Hmm...I reserve my comment o. And this is not to extricate Mr Freeze biko kwa, he is not in the least bit flawless... but neither are you, nor I.

Maybe, I tend to see things, beyond the surface. Now hang on a minute.... It probably was dumb for Freeze to mention her mother's relationship history and some other external factors. I mean, I didn't get that part...I would hate to think that someone will ASSUME my son will turn out a terrible husband or father because my first marriage didn't work. That's just plain DUMB...but then again...

1) I have done interviews many a times and I've been quoted to have said things I never did say or put in a CONTEXT that I actually didn't mean....in other words, skewing the meaning and the tone of the interview...and anyone constantly thrust in the PUBLIC eye will agree with me on that.

2) Does he need to 'emasculate' himself before the world to justify why he has moved on with another woman? No I don't think so....He won't be the first man to chase another woman's round buttocks...so I'm yet to find any reasonable justification for saying these hideous things...even if he is trying to seek ATTENTION as his haters claim...Trust me, there must be some better CREATIVE way to get on the lips of everyone. C'mon na...If people say FREEZE is the arrogant son of a gun they claim he his, then my guess is that he needs his EGO and perception to be intact always, Abi? No African man wants to be the bane of ridicule or be potrayed as been 'beat down' by a woman, any woman, even if it's their sister or mother. That he cries out here...we all need to find a tiny bit of COMPASSION and perhaps listen. Isn't there a wise saying...."No smoke without fire..."...(though some people are great at creating MAGIC).

3) This was his relationship, he lived that experience and to expect no form of bitterness or ANGER from him is rather silly. What I find weird is that people on the outside expect him to present his case with a clear 'dispassionate' approach, as well as in a thought out manner. Truth is that we can easily analyse it because we are neither of the parties involved. No one presents a case with objectivity, everyone is SUBJECTIVE, including Ope's press statement. That she didn't call him names or reel out a series of events doesn't hide the fact that she has said..."I have never been a Violent Adultress....He's only using this to dent my image and create an opening for his new family"....She has strategically said..."Hey, I'm the good guy, he is the bad one..." hahahah.

4) Abeg, I'm not his spokes-person but I believe, when he said I'm only coming out to say this because she started this. He's not referring to social media. We all assume, a problem starts as soon we the public, become aware. Do we have any idea how long they have been fighting about this and who said what in private quarters? And I'll quote him from the tabloid...YES MAGAZINE, which initially broke the story of their marital issues last year in 2014...And this is what they claimed he said... "You called to ask about the challenges in my marriage? Do you have work? Common!” When reminded that by calling him, we were doing our work, and professionally too, he said: “Why can’t you talk about national issues? I think you should concern yourself more as a fellow journalist on finding out where the girls are. That’s Bring Back Our Girls. Go and face that one. There is nothing wrong. Okay! Everything is okay. Alright! I don’t discuss my family as a matter of principle. Good or bad, I do not discuss my family. Thank you”. In fact reading some of the comments that had real personal information about his new woman, details of happenstances and several off-the-cuff comments in support of her. It isn't difficult to see it might be coming from close people associated to her, who may be privy to such information. Is it possible that she was maligning him before family, friends and colleagues? Is it possible he got tired of hearing....She said this...she said that...and decided to come all out for her? I'm not saying I'm right...Ha! Who understands these things? I'm just wondering though. Something must have prompted him to write that first tweet and shade her. After all, Men are human-beings too...with FEELINGS as well.

5) Whether their separation was 6 months ago, 5 years ago, 2 days ago or 10 years ago. The concept that it has been that long, so he shouldn't care is ludicrous. A person is free to WALLOW in hurt for as long as they are still somewhat attached and haven't received counselling or dealt with the issues. Even if they deny it, should that be something for us to castigate him?

6) We take photographs as impending evidence. So If he took pictures. Then it means it PROBABLY wasn't the first time it happened. He probably decided he needed to have evidence because no one in the family probably believed his earlier complaints. And let's be honest, it is still a bizarre phenomenon especially for Africans to accept that 40% of Victims of Domestic Violence/Abuse are actually Men. We laugh at them, MOCK them for being WEAK or even turn it around on them and make them out to look like the real abusers. I didn't fail to notice some of the words he used to describe his feelings...Frustrated, Depressed and SUICIDE....and we still think he was joking or making it up? Maybe he was....or maybe he wasn't.

7) He made mention of his love for wrist-watches, I kept wondering if the so-called blog commentators who kept asking how that was part of the conversation really think....Duh!!! Where are your brains dammit??? He said it helped him de-focus from his problems and helped heal his depressive thoughts since he hated sports and couldn't partake based on his friends advice. I have written so many times, how my writing was THERAPY for me during my separation. People take up new adventures, new hobbies and new skills. He was using that to buttress the fact that he is getting better and moving on.What's so wrong with his love for collecting designer time pieces? At least now we have the back story as to how that really started. Fake or not. Lol.

8) As a seperated single mother who knows how hard it is to raise a child by herself...and what it feels like not to have my son's father in his life, I'm a bit weary that he wants to be involved in the lives of his children but she chooses to keep them away from him. That for me is a no, no... even though I refuse to judge because I don't have the details...still no matter what strains are between parents. The children should not be used as a tool to get back at the other. That for me is the real MATURITY...The understanding that you can both be separated, divorced and still be a compound family because something precious ties you too. A man and a woman can stop being lovers or husband or a wife...but they can never stop being parents to their children.

I have always spoken out in DEFENCE of women, and I always will...but we women also need to UNDERSTAND that we are here for all of us (INCLUDING the MEN)...and we'll not be who we are, without the existence of the men who love us and also support us... irrespective of our flaws and weaknesses.

I am learning to teach a concept called “Love is a Verb.” My definition of LOVE is caring about the other person’s experience as deeply as you care about your own – how they are feeling, how your actions are impacting them, and what you can do to ensure they feel safe, connected, and loved by you. This is active CONSIDERATION we all need to learn.

I am not saying Freeze was abused by his wife or that he's an angel. I'm not saying she is a terrible woman or that she doesn't have her valid reasons. (Even though I know so many terrible women do exist). Ever watched all those CRAZY women who kill on CRIME & INVESTIGATION Network? Aha! Lol. I'm just saying we all need to open our MINDS and focus our thoughts on the real issues here. Whatever character/situational issues went wrong, or the love lost between them, is their own personal issue to deal with...but if there was ever a case of ABUSE on either parties, then It is a cause for SOCIAL concern and I applaud whoever has the balls to step up and own up to being a VICTIM whether man or woman....That in itself takes a lot of COURAGE to do and more men should be encouraged to speak up instead of drowning their voices. Ahem!

FEATURE: Masai Ujiri And His Awesome Plan For African Kids This Summer


It's no SECRET how I feel about children being the mother of an amazing five (5) year old myself. One of my biggest desires, is to see him SUCCEED and hopefully create an enabling environment for his SKILLS to thrive in the future.

Which is why I am so excited right now to share this....I remember, as a young teenage girl who used to secretly CRUSH on my best friend (Nthenya's) eldest brother Masai, (one for his gobsmacking height and the other for his great skills as a pro basket-baller at the time). I was in awe of the fact that I personally knew someone in the NBA and he was a damn fine man. And yes, that may have somewhat triggered the very interest I had in my first boyfriend, Yemi. He too had played basketball in Belgium or was it Portugal...eisshh. I can't even remember now. Hahahah.

But it's not Masai's good looks or SUCCESS that has driven me to share this....but his outstanding CONTRIBUTIONS to help develop children and the youths in Africa over the years, through life support skills from his 'GIANTS OF AFRICA' (GOA) Project... in which his younger sister, Nthenya Ujiri is also a staunch believer and a major driving force (Trust me, I know how hard she works).

Well, it pleases me to announce that....

MASAI UJIRI’S GIANTS OF AFRICA WILL HOST KIDS BASKETBALL CAMPS THIS SUMMER IN NIGERIA, GHANA, KENYA AND RWANDA

TORONTO, ON (July 7, 2015) Masai Ujiri and Giants of Africa (GOA) announced, they will be holding camps in four countries across Africa this summer for the first time. Celebrating its 12th year supporting the growth of basketball in Africa, Giants of Africa will be expanding its camps from Nigeria and Kenya to include Ghana and Rwanda this summer. Camps will be held in Nigeria from August 3-5, Ghana from August 7-9, Kenya from August 10 -12 and Rwanda from August 13-15.

Giants of Africa camps ‎bring together top coaches from across the country to help run the sessions and are designed to help young basketball players develop athletically, achieve life goals and become better players. In addition to on-court basketball skills development, Giants of Africa strives to help foster participants via life skills support and local community outreach initiatives. ‎

Running the Giants of Africa camps every year has become very important to us,” said Ujiri. “ We have to give back and encourage the youth. While we all want to do well in our daily jobs, we must never forget what got us here. Using basketball to educate and develop African youth is just the beginning of what needs to be accomplished. Coaching the coaches and building infrastructure is key for the growth of the game on the continent. These kids are motivated, aspire to learn and continue to work hard. It is a responsibility for us to inspire them to keep aiming high by providing them opportunities to grow."

Since the Giants of Africa camps began more than 100 camp attendees have moved on to high school or university in the United States, with around 20 now playing professionally in Europe.

Modeled after the NBA’s Basketball Without Borders outreach program, Giants of Africa holds two types of annual camps – Top 50 Camp and Big Man Camp. Its approach is to use the game of basketball as a means to teach and nurture important life skills. The Top 50 Camp focuses on the top 50 kids from across the country and provides campers with three intense days of instruction. The Big Man Camp teaches young athletes at six-foot-eight and above the basic fundamentals of the game with a focus on running, catching, footwork and shooting. The goal for both camps is to begin to develop each of these athletes’ skills at a young, and still developmental age. This approach provides an opportunity for ongoing improvement as each child continues to develop, learn and grow.

This summer’s camps are made possible through the support of partners from across the globe with special thanks to the NBA, Nike, NestlĂ© Milo, Ecobank, MLSE Foundation and Sportscorp Travel.

###

#AskAlex : I Don't Know If He Loves Me...


Dear Alex,

I am such a big follower of your naked talks, and I like how your topics address real life issues with a certain realness that is difficult to come by and honestly admirable. I also read your blogs from time to time when I can. I have a problem and I was hoping you could help me a little. I have been dating my man for 3 years now and he says he loves me whenever we are together but I feel like he's lying because when we are out and we bump into a friend or cousin he introduces me as his friend. If I call, he will send a text that he's busy and will call me back, but won't call back until days later of which I'm the one who still calls. Then whenever I want to take selfies with him to post our pictures on instagram or facebook he fights with me about it. That he's a private person and doesn't need the whole world involved in our relationship. What do I do? I'm not happy. I love him so much, but his attitude depresses me. I don't even know if he loves me because of the way he behaves. Please I really need your help. I am tired of feeling this way.


Chioma.


Hey Chioma,

First of all, thank you so much for following my radio show and actively following the blog as well and contributing your comments. I appreciate it and I find your interaction extremely valuable. Let me start by saying your boyfriend is a JERK (Just Emotionally Reckless) . I know how you feel....because I have been there playing the Back Pocket Girl aka The Booty Call and I know so many women who have been there at one point or another with a man who had no genuine intentions of loving them or committing to them.

Now it's funny how our INTUITION tells us something or someone is right....or something or someone is wrong for us and we ignore that powerful still voice of reasoning feeding us some WISDOM. I have learned to listen and trust my intuition better because it is rarely wrong. And it's simply our subconscious looking out for us.

From your email, you already have the answers you need....I think you even know the TRUTH but you are unwilling to accept it because you are hoping someone else will tell you otherwise.... perhaps give you a theory for why all of that foolishness is some MYSTICAL sign of real love waiting to unveil. I KNOW again because I have been you....constantly making excuses and analysing why I really could be wrong in my assessment of the kind of relationships I had developed with Emotionally Unavailable Men. I played his actions....side by side his words....then his so called feelings side by side mine. And guess what? ACTION speaks louder than words. How a person feels about you is clearly evident in how they treat you. Words may lie....


LOVE itself doesn't lie... neither does it HIDE. It is evident for the world to see for love is the TRUTH even when you deny it. Love will EXPOSE you. I remember being with a man I was committed to, for years.... will spend the night at his, maybe even make love in the morning and a few hours later, the same day he will introduce me as his 'FRIEND' and this happened for years. It broke me...yet I would make up excuses in my head, for why it was okay. I questioned myself...put in so much more effort in trying to win him....and despite the fact that so many people thought we were a good fit and looked great together. It NEVER changed a thing because he was simply too hardened to care....what I would call 'Emotionally Reckless'.

I can look back now and laugh at how SILLY I was to have given him more than he deserved. But that's what love is right?....people who get our love usually need not do anything SPECIAL to earn it.

Anyway, here are a few signs that the man you are involved with clearly doesn't love you...


#1. He Doesn't Create Time For You .

Does he spend time with you? Create time for you? Or is he busy prioritising other things, perhaps other people because he believes those things are more important, or assumes you UNDERSTAND and you'll always be there whenever he can squeeze in a minute for you. Even the busiest business mogul finds a few minutes a day to squeeze in a quick check-in on the woman he loves.

When you are with him, do you start feeling like time is not on your side because you have to leave soon. He's expecting other visitors, he needs to get back to work or watch some football alone with the boys. That’s your intuition talking. Listen to it. If it seems he never has anytime for you, take a look-see. One thing that will always remain true is that a man will always make time for the things or people that are important to him, especially the love of his life.


#2. He’s Always Asking You To Contribute On Everything Or You Even Make The Bigger Sacrifice.

It’s nice for a man to have a woman who can chip in to help from time to time or even go all out to make him comfortable. But wait, does he make you travel all the way to come see him EVERY TIME? Like he never comes to yours...you always have to go to his. Even if you don't live by yourself or have your own space. Most men who care will drive all the way to pick up his lady love (even if she has a car and can drive herself) it's a sign he's willing to show that she's his responsibility and he will be ready to pick her up and drop her back when needed.


Or does he make you foot the bills when you are out. And maybe you are even capable of footing the bill. However, if he insists that everything is always even, including your dinner dates, and that you get this one and he gets the next one and it goes back and forth, he’s definitely not in love with you. I once went out on a supposed date with a friend who had been begging to take me out to DINNER. We agreed on where and when. I drove up to a nice really affordable restaurant. He met me up there....I had placed an order for meals and by the time he got there, he started complaining that I was a much better cook than the chef at the restaurant. Hahahah. My home made food was the best cooking he had ever tasted. Bla bla bla (Yea! Lots of my friends say that. Nothing new there....Take it from a fantastic cook....the food there was absolutely DELICIOUS....But I suspected what was about to happen. When the waiter brought the bill. He claimed he didn't have enough cash on him...and his ATM card seemed to be having issues. I paid the bill....#15,000 that's about a $100 at the time...(And yes, that's the last time he ever saw me).


A real man with PRIDE would never allow that. I said 'pride' not EGO.


#3. He Publicly Declares That You Are Just FRIENDS

If you’ve been dating for a while, say more than 6 months (and you are both not in other relationships) say he's married and you are engaged or you are both engaged to other people...(Meanwhile, that's crazy by the way) and he continues to refer to you in public as his “friend,” ....accept the TRUTH he’s not in love with you. Even if he were your friend, he wouldn’t lead you on like that. Who does that to their friends? Take advantage of them and throw them out in the cold. Do you sleep with all your friends? Does he sleep with all his friends? IDIOT!!! If he says you are just friends, well...believe him. That’s what you are. It's a subtle way of telling you not to expect more out of him. Do not have any EXPECTATIONS and jump off the booty ride.


#4. He Often Ignores Your Phone Calls and Doesn’t Call Back.

There is a difference between a man who creates time for you and one who's only there half the time...or never even there without prodding. The most precious gift we can offer someone is our presence. Building relationships is about relating and interacting...that's why it's called RELAT-ionship and it isn't if he hardly finds the need to embrace you with mindfulness and only chooses to relate with you when he needs a little ass. You may have hope, but deep down in your heart, you know that his love is not true... especially If he’s ignoring your calls, then that's a sign that he’s just not that into you. If a man CARES about you, he wants to talk to you. He wants to know that you are okay...or know what you need because you are important to him. He doesn't want distance to come between...and you shouldn't ever need an EXCUSE to stay in contact with him. The moment you need a reason to call your man, or the moment he stops responding or doesn't remember to. It simply means you are not on his mind. So tell me, who forgets the people they love??? Aha!


#5. MIA on his Social Media

Is he active on social media? Posting comments, links and photos of himself and other people, yet there are no signs of you anywhere on any of his social media pages, no photos of you on Facebook, no mentions of you on Twitter and not one good photo of you on his Instagram – it could mean he isn’t ready to publicly declare his interest in or even his connection to you. Remember there is a difference between being PRIVATE and being a SECRET. A private person 'publicly' acknowledges your existence, but chooses to keep intimate details of your relationship away from the general public. Not acknowledging you shows you are a big secret. Frankly, though, he doesn’t take pride in you. Regardless of what anyone says, real love can’t help but be publicly professed. When Chris Attoh started dating Damilola Adegbite, did he hide it? Did Ashton Kutcher hide when he started dating Mila Kunis? So why would your so-called man hide you? Err...Why? Ehen!! You can do the maths.

I know you want me to tell you what to do. And whilst I can't tell you whether to leave him or stay, because this is a decision you will have to make for yourself. I'll be HONEST in letting you know that loving someone who doesn't love you back is like hugging a CACTUS, the longer you hold on the more you hurt. you won't get any farther ahead with a man who doesn't prioritize your relationship and treats you like CRAP. I certainly won't stay after all the things I know now. I also learned the HARD way that you can't make someone fall in love with you....no matter what you do or how great a woman you are...If a man doesn't understand a woman's PURPOSE in his life, he will never APPRECIATE her. Your VALUE is something he will have to recognise for himself, by himself and make a conscious EFFORT to 'win' you. I've been through this and I only ended up getting hurt some more, hoping things will CHANGE. You'll have to move on for your own sanity, build your self esteem, and PREPARE yourself for someone BETTER who will love you as much as you love him.

I hope this post helps you in some way to come to terms with REALITY. Do let me know what you decide and how things go, moving forward. Xoxo.

PODCAST: The Body Attraction On Girl Talk....


One of the ladies is a MOUTH woman, the other loves a man's BUTT , one cares more about the size of a man's CHEST and the other loves to mentally assess a man's package down below. Wonder how Nigerian Actor/Director /Filmmaker - JOHN NJAMAH managed with all that GIRL TALK on Friday Radio Special? Well LISTEN to my guests, Actress- PORTTIA YAMAHAN-PECK, Screen Writer- EBELE ENEBELI and Video Blogger - CYNTHIA AMADI as they join me to strip off their creative hats and talk all things BODY and more....

#TNT 017: What body part first catches your ATTENTION when you first spot a person? Men are known to be visual people and it seems pretty easy to group most MEN into two simple categories.

But there must be other little parts of the BODY, men and women find very attractive in the opposite sex . Well let's hear all the quirky little body parts that attract you and turn you on or turn you off ....and of course WHY?

Pull Up Your Pants Dude... I'm Not A Booty Call


So my HOTTIE of a friend BB, sent me a message out of the blues.... "I want you Alex"... (By out of the blues, he does a regular POP up once every 8 months.... okay, I'm exaggerating just a little bit. But you get my drift) Those guys who show you all the AMAZING sign that they have 'a thing' for you....I call it a thing because there really isn't a name for it, as they have failed to describe in EXACT words, a name for the rather ambiguous FEELING. So I reply with a smiley...I'm laughing of course....because I see it's some cheeky response to my BBM Update "...And I want you to want me too..." which I had written 3 hours before...I also forgot to include the music smiley as it was a line from one of my favourite songs of all times. But then, I bet all the presumptuous minds are thinking this NAUGHTY soul wants to get laid.... aptly ILLUSTRATED by his retort... "I'm serious Alex. I want you from behind NOW...In slow circular motion"...what??? Just like that? Out of the blues...No hello, No, how are you doing? Bia bia, when was the last time you saw me....or spoke with me? So I replied asking him if all his girlfriends were busy or if he had lost their numbers...because he seemed to be confusing me with someone else.

Now let me put this in perspective....Myself and BB did have a brief thing going...nothing to be waving my BRA in the air about, a few knack knacks....twice...okay make that three times, but he certainly was a great DISTRACTION, a nice catch....a brittle skeleton in my closet. Except, I was hoping I could transfer all my feelings from one hard drive to the other. I mean if I found a man taller than Tiger, bigger, with a fuller PENIS who knew how to t'work it somehow, I might remotely CONVINCE myself that I didn't need my off-and-on EX, Tiger in my life...or what was tiger doing for me other than being another out of the blue EU Pop-up....(EU for Emotionally Unavailable). And that's how we women get it all wrong.

Once upon a time, I lay on my back and decided to go for a CASUAL relationship in the hope that they’d get to know me without ‘pressure’, we’d have a good time, and then they would basically DISCOVER what an amazing woman I am... and be unable to SURVIVE without me because somewhere between random texts, midnight phone calls, last minute invitations, the ambiguity, and sometimes the requests to take part in SHADY 'sexcapades' or even having to silently compete with other women in the cue, they would fall madly in LOVE with me. ? Haaa!! Wrong!!!

If you’re the type that really values sex, makes assumptions about what you think is likely to happen as a result of a sexual liaison, or in fact make the dangerous assumption that a sexual connection is an EMOTIONAL connection which will lead to a love connection... bia, that casual SEX trap is waiting to grip you tight in the jaws.

And I'm not saying it’s ‘wrong’ to have sex on the first date or whether you should ‘hold out’ using Steve Harvey's 90 day rule or develop some tight COBWEBS in your panties, whilst you are waiting around for someone really SPECIAL before you get down and free his willy; The real issue with casual relationships is that many people use sex as some sort of CURRENCY that they can cash in for a relationship. And oh lord, I've been GUILTY of that.

Sex without the love, care, trust, respect and loyalty that goes with every MUTUAL relationship, is pretty much just plain ole sex o jare. And it doesn't matter what they say when they get an itch or while his DICK is stuck inside your pom-pom. It took me 8 bloody years to figure that out. Dang! When you allow someone to treat you like you are "dial-a-fuck.com" or "text-the-whore.com" to arrange a QUICKIE with the ease as ordering their favourite pizza, Mbok! something is definitely wrong.

I hear from women who call me every weekend for #AskAlex Talk Therapy, even a few men who have been in casual SEXUAL arrangements for years! And when I think back at how STUPID I was to be in that sort of arrangement for many years with a single guy...I realise that's just fucked up. When we do anything over a period of time, it becomes a HABIT and we start to have relationship ideals that outpace the true nature of the ‘relationship’ itself.

Hard as it may be to understand, if you allow yourself to be someone’s sexual PLAY thing and you actually want MORE from them, whilst it affects you emotionally... it’s actually like being an unpaid escort. (Alright Tiger, you owe me some pension) Hehehe.

Yeah you might get some FRILLS around it like small gifts, lunch, dinner, weekend getaways, or being wheeled to some random social event, but really, that’s just so they can be assured of your consent to keep getting the sex they need...and you of course will be carried away by the GIFTS, lunch date or whatever freaking trips they pull, until it wears off and you realise that you’ve been literally ‘SCREWED’.

Okay, I'm not saying you should request for CASH to be left in your fanny pack, but when you recognise that you’re an unpaid escort, instead of feeling outraged and then committing yourself to a life-long task of getting them to see that you’re worth more than an easy lay, you should be mad and flush them out of your life for GOOD.

And let’s be real – they’re not that SPECIAL anyway. You can buy your own gifts, dinner, and have some company without having to cough up the sex. Abeg, you’re not that DESPERATE. And even if you are...let it be on your OWN terms.

Because – it really doesn’t matter when or who you have sex with; what matters is how blinded you are by it, what CRAZY 'assumptions' you make, and whether you even bother to CONNECT with them on a deeper level, get to know who they really are, what their goals or ideals are before the they get to EXPLORE your vagina or DICK anyway.

When someone can get what they see as their needs being met, whether it’s sexual, attention, AFFECTION, or whatever, and they don’t even have to WORK up a committed relationship or some love, care, trust, respect and the landmarks to go with it, let me assure you that they’re not going to have an attack of conscience one day and say “Right Alex, you’ve given me sex on 109 occasions, responded to my texts within 3 minutes on 90% of the time and have shown me LOYALTY while enjoying the pleasure of my company, so I now grant thee a fully committed relationship.” Hahahah. Oh puhleaseee!!!

See, I learned that sex is not a currency that you can NEGOTIATE a relationship out of. Once you start out a booty call or allow yourself to be reduced to a booty call...you remain a booty call all the way...And it don't matter that you can cook up a storm, clean, have a heart of gold or a have a clear map on how to chase about your life goals. They will never get it.

It’s also safe to say that no intelligent person in their right minds, evaluates the POTENTIAL for a relationship on how well you screw them (okay, there are some really dumb people though), because VAGINAS and penises actually give no indication of what someone’s qualities, characteristics, and VALUES are…and whether they align with yours. Especially since most of those who initiate casual sex are usually emotionally UNAVAILABLE who are really not seeking to connect in any meaningful way. (And boy do I know a few).

A person should treat you as a worthwhile individual deserving of love, care, trust, and RESPECT – not assume a LOW expectation of your values to get you down on your back. More importantly, you first should know your value and LIVE it.

If you’re enjoying being a booty call and want nothing more – fire on. I certainly wouldn’t continue if I'm experiencing any disrespect.

From the moment you start trying to convince them of your WORTH or convince them to imagine a relationship with you, it’s time to pull up your pants and get off– you deserve better than putting yourself out there for someone to take a cheap RIDE.

So back to BB. I told him straight up..."As much as I like you and as much as I'm a spontaneous woman...I still like to be treated with a bit of respect. I'm really not available to be any man's fuck 'option' whenever they are bored or feeling mischievous.". So of course he got the gist and apologised and we are cool now....But you know what, he can pull up his pants, zip up and throw the locks... I am not a booty call and he's never getting any from this P****. Ahem!!!

My Naked Giveaway Of Life...

 
Hey Sweetkins, I know the many times I've probably been given money that wasn't enough to solve my numerous problems or material things (thoughtful as it was) didn't do much either to give me the satisfaction, I needed to be in a happier state of mind. I have found out that even though MONEY is the most SCARCE commodity to get and Information probably the easiest because it is everywhere....Many people will rather give money, than they will give INFORMATION....Why? Maybe...it is because information Is POWER. And no one wants to give away their power.

Ever tried asking the average woman where she bought her human HAIR...or what lightning cream she uses? Or even that cute little pair of jeans she has on...She will probably feign AMNESIA, give you some long un-coordinated story or change the subject. Or may be, you should try ask the young graduate how he rose to become the COO of a fortune 500 company in just 2 years? If it isn't a cover Interview for some popular news journal, you can almost bet your one year meal, that the young lad will die with his SECRET. In other words, if you are not glamourizing his accomplishments or paying him for it. You an go to HELL..He's not ready to trade. Brings to mind a popular saying... "They want to see you do well...but they don't want to see you do better than them..." hmm.

Well, I like to think of myself as a completely 'generous' person. Not because the thought validates my EGO but because I realise that one of the many acts of LOVE is actually GIVING. And it gives me great joy every time someone finds VALUE in something good I'm willing to share. Not because I have too much of it but because I recognise someone else might be 'more in need' of it.

So, yesterday was ILLUMINATING as I spoke and motivated the many who attended my LIVE Webinar around the globe and sent me feedback, on how blessed they felt to have shared a virtual space where I could strip myself and share the little I have learned with them...because it helps them...as it also helps me.

I had initially planned not to share the recorded video, only my 'presentation slide' which does nothing to SPOTLIGHT the depth of information I shared even for a Basic 101 course. But I'm feeling generous right now and I haven't given out something in a while. I'm hoping the simple mind strategies will MOTIVATE you to get moving and step out of your own way.

Its Time To Strip Baby...


Even the most BEAUTIFUL people stand naked before the mirror....And if they are honest with themselves... they may see some flaws. Parts of the body that need improvement....Well...

The concept of being NAKED is very simple. It simply means that I'm not ashamed to present myself the way I really am....(No cover ups). That if I strip down my lies and live in TRUTH....And tell it the way I SEE things...That if I highlight my own weaknesses and laugh at my own silly mistakes....I have taken away the ULTIMATE power from you.... to even MOCK me, because I have EXPRESSED a common truth. That I am not Perfect, and neither are you! And that's something I encourage others also to do.

To learn to be EXPRESSIVE, to own it because it means you are TRANSPARENT and AWARE because 'expression' is simply Truth in its Naked form....A sign of your innate STRENGTH and not your weakness...because only strong people are not AFRAID to be REAL or to keep it real. This is not just a word...It is a MOVEMENT. 'The Naked Movement'... Its time to STRIP all your cover ups.

You can join the A(LEX'S) B(LOG) C(OMMUNITY) forum on this blog to ¤Express| ¤Contribute| ¤Interact| and start liberating your thoughts.

I'm itching to learn from all the things you share. Feel free to post your random thoughts, opinions, photos, videos, music, audios, updates, blog links...as long as it's AUTHENTIC and it empowers others. Its time to push the movement.

Let's Do This Hunnies!!!

Who Gave Me The Authority?


Who even gave me the bloody authority to Counsel and Mentor people on how to get out of their heads and chase their purpose or dreams?

Well, I gave myself that AUTHORITY!

As a SELF-HELP Mentor....My biggest tools are the wisdom I acquire from consistently being "Present in Mind" and my daily struggle for EXCELLENCE. My goal is to show you how to START the process all by yourself...because, well.... I did so too.

Did you know this time 2 years ago I was a 'dying brand' whose career was almost none existent....Plus I was Technologically Ignorant and Naive? I knew very little about the online world or even computers, except the basics I learned back in junior high school. And I ran all over town seeking how to raise funds to shoot my own films. Start a TV talk show and a network radio show on terrestrial radio, all with little or no luck. Because I wasn't laying on my back to cut deals....And I was doing things the IDEALIST way and not the 'realistic' way.

FAST FORWARD: I gave myself the real talk...and somehow I stepped into my REALITY and challenged myself to do more.

In one year, I have created and designed three (3) of my websites all by myself (My Official Site, This Blog and My Online Store). I also configured and published my Android Mobile App, Started A Radio show, Wrote My 'Soon-To-Be' Released Book, Created a Podcast Album, Designed Memorabilias, Broadcast Live Videos (Thanks to Victor)....I'm in the process of writing a new E-Book and I'm collaborating to start my Own 24 Hour "Global Talk Radio Network". Yipeee....(seems crazy right? Well, I'm gonna need your support soon)

I have also gone on to create several other online avenues to utilise my other skills, talents, promote my brand, build my online CREDIBILITY and create a new stream of INCOME globally. Its still growing...and there still so much to learn, to achieve...but I have never been happier and wiser. (And oh I still get to feature in a few movies, record voice overs and PSA's for brands, write movie screenplays, author my blog, record podcasts et all. And I'm re-writing an 80's epic telecast into screenplay for a movie I'm co-producing soon). I don't have a team of 'creatives' slaving on my behalf. I do it all myself...So tell me, Who says you can't do it all?!

I'm always proud to say my Blog was configured and designed using my mobile phone....A Blackberry Z10....a gift that came from my sweet friend Biodun...at a period when my writing was simply therapy to get over so much EMOTIONAL pain... at a time when I couldn't even afford to fix my HP Compaq Notebook or buy a brand new laptop. Yes, early last year was that bad. (But I somehow earned myself bragging rights). Hehehe.

It may probably shock you to note that I use the exact same blog host and template as the most POPULAR blogger in Nigeria....So why does mine look quite DIFFERENT from hers? Is it money? Is it taste? Is it class? Well...maybe a little combination of it....but EFFORT and CREATIVITY definitely tops that list. And guess what I did it myself, no special tutorials or certificates in web designing. I'm 'self taught...' just my CURIOSITY to learn...an innate desire to EXCEL. Something, I believe we all NEED to do...To take out time and experiment on how we can do things better in our own special way.

There's so much I've been doing underground to connect myself with THOUGHT LEADERS globally and share my amazing gift and empowering thoughts with the world....despite the many challenges...I have no intention to slow down on going for GOALS.

Yes, I WAS A BROKE and BROKEN Single Mother....(No longer broken...still broke from time to time) Hahahah. But look at the little I have achieved by simply being self sufficient and DEDICATED .

So what is your excuse????

PODCAST: British Singer Romeo Crow Strips His Journey On The Naked Talk


I must CONFESS, there was a time I wanted to call it off and drop my head in SHAME....I was almost losing my mind....After all the effort and planning for yesterday's show, everything that could go wrong on THE NAKED TALK did go wrong....and I was so freakin' worried that I had totally embarrassed myself and my brand LIVE before my British Guest- ROMEO CROW, his massive fans and all my listeners globally.

Yesterday was a practical course in CHALLENGE and I was stripped NAKED for the entire world to hear despite the comfort, knowing my guest was patient, generous and messages from the die-hard (loyal) listeners who gladly persevered with us.

If there is anything you should listen to....This is IT!!!

LISTEN to how we somehow made it through the THUNDER STORM in London, the 4th of July downtime in New-York and the heavy RAIN in Lagos.

His style of music not only breaths LIFE....but his words will also inspire you to do great things in your own way.

Quick Facts About My Guest- Romeo Crow:


He is 35 this year, lives in London, is married, has a child and is a singer, multi-instrumentalist, songwriter, filmmaker, author and family man!

Family - He has an Italian wife and they have a two year old daughter. Spending time with them, playing and chatting is the most important thing in his life!

Music - He plays the guitar, vocals, bass, drums a little piano and record and mix his music at home, in his lounge, among his daughter's toys :)

Film - He makes short films of his songs as a way to improve his experience, skills and creativity, and help other artists in making basic music videos for them. He's also done some videos for corporate clients.

Writing - He loves writing fiction and blogging. For the fiction he has a book of four short stories on Amazon and a few novels in the pipeline. For the blogging; he writes an "inspirational" blog post weekly, designed to help people pursue their passions in life.

Communicating - He loves chatting with his fans! He is very active on social media and replies to around 500 messages per day, which is AWESOME that so many people care what he's up to, though he's not sure how sustainable it is as things grow!

Martial Arts - Romeo and his wife have both been training in the same school of traditional Chinese martial arts for a number of years now. Though he previously trained in various arts all his life, his wife had not, so they started with Tai Chi and now also train Wing Chun and Shoalin. It is a very disciplined and hard-working school which really challenges both the body and the mind - they get a LOT out of it!

Travelling - He loves to travel! They go back to Italy a lot to see his in-laws (which also happens to be his favourite country) but recently (now their daughter's old enough) have been taking and planning more adventurous trips.

Future - He helps some clients on their marketing and digital strategy and have been asked if he wants to do some talks on it. He certainly wants to help people succeed in their passions (which is what his Sunday blog posts are about) but, more than that, he wants to look at ways he can do a lot more to help people - not just those in safe, secure, developed places but further afield. This is something he hopes to look into and develop a lot more as time goes by. Outside of this he is working on his fifth music EP, some full length novels, a unique children's story concept, some more videos and possibly a screenplay. And changing nappies, lots of nappies :) Hehehe.

So what do you think about his music and the show for this week Lovelies? Feel free to share your thoughts. If you want to check out Romeo....You can visit and connect with him @ his official site www.RomeoCrow.com
