Most of the times we saw something good or fruity in a difficult or far place, the first thing that happened to us was that fear discouraged us. A battle of two different voices started and the strong voice was often limited by fear to go towards the far and difficult. This is a very weak option. The story of success is often a difficult one except for those who have chosen the ‘live well but short’ option. I therefore challenge all of us who are afraid to start new things or continue from where we’ve been discouraged to continue; nobody thinks exactly like you and nobody reads your mind. Because nobody thinks exactly like you and nobody reads your mind, acknowledge the fact that you are in control of your wishes and wills and do the unexpected.
I think Martin Luther is still a hero today because he defeated fear and fought for the rights of even the unborn. Many anglophones in Cameroun have the opportunity to be documented as heroes but fear is beating them so badly. They see evil triumphing and they say nothing because they fear to be jailed and tortured. Nobody wants to die as if they know when they’ll die.
There are a lot of people who will like to step on your confidence based on their assumptions about who they think you are. No doubt many people have lost all hopes and they only think about the past. Several times we’ve been cautioned to believe in ourselves and remind ourselves of our rights and duties.
I became so frightened the day I attended my first lecture in the university. There were many students in class from different high schools living me with the impression that I can never do better than a majority of them. That was bad of me because I didn’t believe I could fulfil my potential. That’s lack of confidence. I wrote my first CA and scored 8/20 but that did not stop me from later scoring as much as 18.5/20 in other courses.
We must all fight and banish the ghost of low self-esteem installed in us by weak people. Nothing is impossible, we should only learn how to carry the loads so that they don’t break us down. In 2011, I told myself that the time for small thinking is over. Believe me, since then I’ve never gone backward. Let’s grow!
We’ve heard people say bad things about others because they’re short, tall, dark, fair, fat, thin and the rests. Some of these qualities especially the ones that come with negativity have harmed many hopes. Many people are not liked by their peers because of their body shapes and sizes. Nobody is his or her creator and nobody ever wished for his present size and shape before God created him. We’re all carrying bodies made by God in his OWN image and likeness[and for a purpose.] Your body is not as powerful as your brain. The body only suffers when the brain is not rationally used. I challenge every handicap or anybody with ‘abnormality’ to put his/her body and brain to full use. I guarantee you, you will do better than the ‘normal’ bodies. Remember, when you have all you don’t scramble. Short as Chidinma, you’ll be a music superstar. Dark as Kante, you’ll be a football superstar.
Two years ago, one of my course facilitators said the so-called 2020, 2025, 2030, 2035 Emergence dreams in most CEMAC countries is like a dress put on a blind man. He knows neither the colour of the dress nor what’s written on it. Who’s the blind man and who’s putting the dress on him? When you look at all the countries of the CEMAC zone, you’ll know that every future plan is a nightmare that can be disrupted by the least noise. Understood?
You can’t have young graduates on the streets everyday and you keep talking of an “emergency plan.”
I rather call it “imaginary plan.” See the way people are complaining because of unemployment and frustration! How do we therefore build a good future with people who are desperate and destitute?
You don’t have to hate someone simply because he loves you now that you’re rich.
When you’re poor, you talk like a bad drum. People say you’re loud and noisy.
When a poor man cries, people see blood and run away from it.
When a poor man sweats, he sweats like a pig.
A poor man talks and people say he has bad breathe.
Some rich men also fall under the above criteria, but people don’t talk about. Even if people talk about, they talk in a comic, entertaining, harmless and often acceptable manner.
When you therefore look at individuals and organisations or groups, you notice that there are lazy,unfortunate and poor people. There are also hardworking, fortunate and rich people. There is another group which seems to come from a different universe; people you find in this group are lazy but rich, hardworking but poor. This group is the heart of confusion, hatred, murder, witchcraft, poverty etc. In this group people are robbed of their pride and riches and consequently exposed to danger and false accusations. It’s difficult to live well when you’re robbed and exposed; life becomes so difficult and vulnerable to odds. This is when falsehood and envy comes in. Many people are yet to understand why life on earth is almost divided into two parts(which are not often equal).
I’ve tried to think positively but at times I dream negatively and each time I try to blend the two, I see all my tough lucks.
We have a lot to explore if we use our senses well. I used to say that if I have to thank God for creating me, I will thank him double for making me male; today the story has changed. I thank God for giving me the much desired patience to follow the confidential but sometimes slow path to success. I’ll one day be a difficult person to see, asses and understand. I’m writing these things today because I still feel that I’m better understood through my writings. I wonder if there is anyone here who sees or hears me more one hour a day if not my course mates and one neighbour.
When we witness the success of others around us, we often fail to realize the setbacks and struggles that they had to overcome to get to where they are. But as those who have scaled the heights will tell you, the road to achievement is often paved with failures, and with pain. What separates those who ultimately succeed from those who don’t is not the frequency or even importance of these failures; it is the ability to find insights in those obstacles, to heed those hard lessons with humility, and to harness those moments of adversity to help you develop the wisdom and resilience that will propel you forward on the journey to your dreams.
It’s time you learned to embrace the gifts of adversity , and remembered that every setback brings you closer to your goals.
Just like appearance is not all that real, I never lose, I either win or learn.
I’m up to something great. Don’t abandon me.
I dedicate this writeup to you all who’s dreams have be affected by negativity. It’s not gone yet.
I also dedicate this to my friends and former classmates who for one reason or the other have not been able to explore and expose their individual talents. The world will never know you till the day you start doing something great even in minor areas with minor groups. I still remember how we used to feel each others presence and representation during break and while preparing to write our exams. I also know for sure that some of you who were pushed out of rail back then because of beauty and people’s wealths are adjusting today. Some have said it’s the end of their dreams because they have not been quite fortunate to show the world what’s in them. I still remember that throughout my academic career till date, I have never been of bad influence to you. I’ve never been the best, because I’m still pursuing the best(I pray God I one day find it).
I’ve been allergic to voice calls of recent but I do well in communicating my thoughts and concerns through messages.

I’m not a saint, I have many weaknesses. Happy weekend from your friend Njobe Serge Ngala .
England’s most valuable football club Manchester United FC have had fairly good results this season with the coming in of the Portuguese expert coach José Mourinho aka The Special One.
Last season, many Manchester United fans complained of boring football. They said the players were slow and less entertaining. After winning last season’s FA Cup and finishing 5th on the English Premier League Classification Table, Louis Van Gaal was sacked as Manchester United Manager and replaced by José Mourinho.
At the end of last season, LVG’s results were not as bad as the boring football. He won the FA Cup, and in the Premier League he had the following results;
Matches Played: 38
Hit woodwork: 9
Big chances missed: 28
Mourinho is not Van Gaal so his story should be different as well. Mourinho has long been known as the Special One owing to his brilliant records as Chelsea FC Manager( though it ended in a fiasco). Manchester United are more familiar with draws than boring football this season. Mourinho did good business by bringing to Old Trafford big names such as Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Paul Pogba just to name a few.
I’m a Manchester United fan and I can no longer withstand the criticisms from friends and mates who know I’m a Utd fan. They call us draw masters and call Mourinho draw specialist. They are not wrong.
After today’s draw with West Brom, I decided to write down my disappointment. Check out this Manchester United draws run from 2 October 2016 to 1 April 2017.
Man Utd 1-1 Stoke City 2/10/16
Liverpool 0-0 Man Utd 17/10/16
Man Utd 0-0 Burnley 29/10/16
Man Utd 1-1 Arsenal 19/11/16
Man Utd 1-1 West Ham 27/11/16
Everton 1-1 Man Utd 4/12/16
Man Utd 1-1 Liverpool 15/01/17
Stoke City 1-1 Man Utd 21/01/17
Man Utd 0-0 Hull City 1/02/17
Man Utd 1-1 Bournemouth 4/03/17
Man Utd 0-0 West Brom 1/04/17
WONDERFUL RECORD! Eleven draws already. Congratulations José Mourinho
Mourinho has however suffered injustice. I call it injustice because his team had enough chances to convert most of these draws to wins.
CURRENT MANCHESTER UNITED STATS UNDER JOSÉ MOURINHO
After going through hard times trying to have good academic results, the results have finally come in grand style. I call it my success story. My success story because this success is different from my other academic successes.
On 1st March 2017, I hard a very difficult day trying to convince myself that I’ve failed my semester exams. It took me a short time to recover from the shock and challenge myself ahead of the resit session which was to start in about two weeks. My friends and family encouraged me; Vanessa Kehdinga told me this;
Her words were encouraging and inspiring. I took them serious.
Berinyuy Mildred thought I was joking when I said I only passed three out of six courses last semester.I designed a new reading timetable where I had to double my efforts.
My sweetheart Louiza was speechless
My finest parata Neville was with me when I needed him more. His words were strong;
At the end, I made it; thanks to the words of encouragement and hard work too. Check out NJOBE SERGE NGALA on this list
I’m the 4th in a class of 28 students. Thank you Lord!
