“You are a very foolish man. Nonsense. Did you buy me as your slave?”

“You are a very foolish man. Nonsense. Did you buy me as your slave?”


He was so upset with her, he stormed out of the house and took the car keys.


Enveloped by his anger he drove out narrowly missing the returning gate which took out the side mirror.


The car engine screamed as he struggled to change the gear, looking for the clutch pedal and furiously banging on the steering wheel.


After 30 minutes of driving, he parked the car in the middle of the road, took out his pack of Benson, and lit one.


As he inhales and exhales, he began to calm down and took a second look at his situation.


How come I am driving a pink car? He thought to himself.


In his anger he took the keys to his wife’s car which was an automatic vehicle.


This made a little more sense now to him as all his cars were manual and he hated automatic vehicles hence the fight with the gear and imagined clutch.


To make matters worse, he realized he was in the middle of Diobu at 3am in the morning………..


PASSION is a feeling and has an intense pull just like anger.


Most entrepreneurs begin their business journey fueled by their passion for that business without really considering their destination, mode of transportation, navigator, adequate provision for fuel, etc.


They wake up one morning and find themselves at a place they don’t recognize, using a vision that doesn’t belong to them, and fully exhausted.
