“It Does Happen To Men” Breaks The Myth

In a sane society, people would laugh over the perspective of domestic violence by a female against her male counterpart. In fact, to some people,  such a thing is more of an exception, and could not be contemplated. It sounds incredible and borders on the impossible. But in today’s world, is it?

Over the years, the issue of domestic violence has become a threat to the psyche of victims who may be spouses, irrespective of the legal or domiciliary status of the relationship in which it occurs. Physical and sexual assault accompanied by verbal intimidation and physical abuse is never accepted as a norm in any society. Yet, there are individuals who have suffered low esteem due to their inability to find a listening ear they can confide in, to explain or discuss their challenges.

However, women have enjoyed much publicity because of their assumed vulnerability to the overpowering strength of the man. Notwithstanding, there are also women whose violent and temperamental disposition has taken a bitter toll on the personality of a spouse who chooses not to retaliate, or hit a woman.

 It Does Happen To Men is a real-life diary of the day-to-day challenges a man went through in marriage. The author, James Mackie, encapsulates in realism the experience in the hands of a typical woman with an upending character that demeans the personality of a man. It cancels the general thought that men often do take advantage of the opposite sex, because of their assumed weakness.

It is a must-read for couples, singles, marriage counselors, scholars, and religious leaders, etc. You never can tell, someone out there may need to be saved from the horrors of domestic violence within the hallowed precincts of a family in your neighborhood.

“It Does Happen To Men” serves as a voice and provides a line of action to take when marital tides get rough and tough with uncertainties.

*Mackie is a professional life coach and a motivational speaker who is passionate in giving back to society. Watch out for an exclusive interview with the author.

How My Boyfriend Rubbed Charm On My Pant, Lady Cries Out

If Nigerians think the that danger of yahoo boys, particularly as it affects women’s underwear, will abate so soon, they are mistaken as the desperate young men desirous of making quick money continue to look out for ways of soaking women’s pants with charms in order to use them for rituals.

It has been gathered that one Rachael Godwin, a physiotherapist with the National Orthopedic Hospital in Igbobi area of Lagos, has fallen victim to the yahoo boys’ menace. In this situation, it was a case of a dog eating the bone around his neck as her boyfriend identified as Olumide gave her a pair of pants laden with charms for money ritual.

Rachael, 32, recounted her ordeal when she was forced to wear the pants, leading to her loss of senses thus: “I met Olumide in January 2018 on a BRT vehicle that was travelling to Ikeja from Ikorodu. I work at the National Orthopaedic Hospital, Igbobi, as a physiotherapist.

 “We started talking and became close friends and lovers. He told me that he had gonorrhea and I treated him. I guess he must have hypnotised me such that I really didn’t know what I was doing. I gave him my entire savings; he even lodged at a hotel at Kosofe, Ketu, for four months and I paid the bill of N185, 000.

“He later took me to his father at Ikosi. They live in a very unhealthy environment, which made me to pity them and I offered to help. I rented a house for myself in November 2018 and he visited me in the house that same month,” she said

A distraught Rachael said that sometime in December 2018, Olumide visited her home and told her he intends to buy a Toyota Venza which he looked up on the internet and informed her it would cost N11.8 million. She explained that when she asked him how he would raise the money for the car, he requested that they should open a joint account for that purpose.

 “I used my land documents to get a loan and even promised to gather all I had in my account. My trouble started on December 14, 2018, when he came to my house and gave me one of my pants to wear. I refused to wear the pants because I was not comfortable with the request. He called one of my neighbours, Helen, who helped him to force me to wear the pants. After I was forced to wear the pants, I lost my senses and was taken to my mother’s house.

 “I was taken to Ibadan for treatment and I got better. I did not suspect him then. I kept relating with him. On December 31, 2018, I went to a church for thanksgiving. I was given some prayer points to be said at midnight.

 “While I was praying sometime in January, Olumide started shouting, ‘Stop praying, they have wired the money, it is only $2,000 from Alaska in the USA,” she said

She immediately alerted the police and he was arrested.

Speaking from his detention cell, Olumide denied the allegations leveled against him by Rachael. In his confessional statement, he reportedly stated that he was shocked to discover that the $2,000 he got from the United States amounted to only N750,000. He said he gave Helen N300, 000 and also gave part of the money to an unnamed man.

Confirming the arrest, the spokesperson of the state police command, CSP Chike Oti, said on the case was still being investigated at the command headquarters and that Olumide would be charged to court at the conclusion of investigation.

When you think of the words “The Greatest,” only one name comes to mind, Muhammad Ali. Ali was not only regarded as the greatest boxer of all-time but also one of the most significant figures of the 20th century.

Born and raised in Louisville, Kentucky as Cassius Clay, and began training to be an amateur boxer when he was only 12 years old. Legend has it that young Clay took up the sweet science of pugilism because he was being bullied.

At the age of 18, he won a gold medal in the light heavyweight division at the 1960 Summer Olympics in Rome. He would turn professional later that year and convert to Islam in 1961. At the age of 22, in 1964, he won the world heavyweight championship from Sonny Liston in a major upset. He then changed his name from Cassius Clay, which he called his “slave name”, to Muhammad Ali. He would be the most recognizable member of the Nation of Islam alongside their national minister Malcolm X.

After successfully defending his heavyweight title for two straight years, Ali was drafted by the U.S. Government to enlist in the Vietnam War. Unlike his predecessor Joe Louis, Ali refused to be drafted citing his opposition to the Vietnam War based on religious reasons. He was eventually arrested, found guilty of draft evasion charges, and stripped of his boxing titles. After a four-year fight and losing out on his peak years as a fighter, he successfully appealed the decision to the U.S. Supreme Court, which overturned his conviction in 1971. Ali’s stance as a conscientious objector made him a hero in the anti-war movement and counterculture generation.

Ali would go on to win the heavyweight title on two more occasions being the first to accomplish the feat. His boxing matches with Joe Frazier, George Foreman, Ken Norton, and Leon Spinks are still some of the best fights in the history of boxing.

Muhammad Ali was the most famous person in the world during his lifetime. He was honored with every award imaginable. He life was the focus of thousands of books and feature films. He was simply the greatest.

After a long battle with Parkinson’s disease, Muhammad Ali joined the ancestors on June 3, 2016.

Grind Like Grant. 3 Productive and priceless Advice From Grant Cardone 💰💰💰

Grant Cardone is a real estate mogul, sales beast and named the #1 marketer to watch in 2017 by Forbes Magazine. At 60 years old, he is one of the oldest entrepreneur with a massive and active impact on social media. Grant Cardone urges his followers and clients to make success their duty, responsibility, obligation, and to rise above outdated, unworkable middle class myths and limitations in order to achieve true freedom for themselves and their families. He is the 10x man!

Below are three (3) Secret of Grant Cardone success as explained by him.

Grant Cardone’s Secret To Success.

#1. Set 10x Goals.

Let’s say your goal is to make 1 million, Grant’s advice here is to aim to make 10 million and if you do fail in making 10 million and you end up making less, guess what? You will be making 1 million or more anyways. So, set higher and bigger goals. This mindset is very true and important to grasp.

When you set small goals and you fail to meet them, that might be an outright failure but when you set bigger goals, even your failure is a win! This concept of setting really bigger goals and audacious goals helps to stretch what you believe is possible.

A lot of the times, we are conservative in our goal setting process. It’s one of those better-safe-than-sorry type of scenarios whereby you’d rather reach a goal with ease than challenging yourself to see what’s even possible. The reason we and people do this is because we would rather like to reach a small goal and feel successful than fall short of a wildly ambitious stretched goal.

No matter what aspect of your life you want to achieve success in, be it in personal achievement, professional accomplishments, social status or financial results, when you allow yourself to think 10 times what you deem okay to achieve, you are pushing yourself to think bigger and come up with ideas and plans that pushes you to attain such heights.

To grow exponentially, the 10x thinking and mindset is one you must have.

#2. Stop All Poverty Behaviors

Mindset and behavior is everything.

If you continue to indulge in poverty behaviors, you will remain poor. Here is a list of some “poverty behavior”: Indulging in drugs, abusing the use of alcohol, Spending and not investing, wasting weekends, depending on the government, always looking for shortcuts, having a victim mentality, not reading and educating yourself, refusing to network or travel and more!

If you notice, most people who are poor and have the poverty mindset have similar behaviors. They are always pointing at someone else other than themselves as the reason why they are poor or here they are at the moment. They have hour long arguments with peers on how the government is laundering all the money and how the rich are getting richer by the day. They complain, waste time and energy on things that they have zero power on or over.

The aim here is to do the opposite of what they do – spend more time educating yourself, spend less times partying every weekend (I need to this myself), stay away from drugs and alcohol abuse and choose healthy living instead because you can only become and enjoy riches with a sound mind, stay away from the victim mentality as well, spend more time placing yourself in places and locations where you build your network and also experience new things.

By all means, aim to stop all poverty behaviors and start behaving like the person you dream about and want to become.

#3. Pay Attention to The Money.

There is always going to be an argument about if money equals success. Regardless of what side of the fence you are on, money will always be an important aspect of our lives and will always be an element of success.

Grant Cardone’s advice is to pay attention to the money and ways to earn it. Being a touchy subject, most people do not like talking about money, they believe money is the root of all evil, so they shy away from money conversations and situations.

In order to be successful, it is important to learn skills, get information, acquire knowledge and pay attention to how you can make money with your skill, talent or service. Always pay attention to the money!


You’ve just read Grant Cardone’s top 3 tips and rules for success. The first was to set bigger goals (ideally 10x what you would love to achieve), then you should stop all poverty behaviors and lastly pay attention to the money.

Lets go! Let’s whoop 2019 ass!
