IBM Bangis is back with yet another exciting project called change, Change is his latest installment in his collection of spoken word/motivational videos. The video revolves around the subject matter of CHANGE. How people want change but don't
want to change. People are very much averse
to change.The irony is everybody want the change but nobody is willing to make
a change because no one wants to leave their comfort zone.
make change happen, one has to work, one has to plan, execute and it will
require time & effort which offcourse is not everybody's priority. The prime factor which influence change
includes the person's courage, no control on future, more work,threat and may
be everything may become failure in the middle. And because of uncertainty involved it becomes
general tendency to avoid change. It also involves a psychological part of human
wakes us to consciousness, something difficult, something out of daily routine,
looking into the future and a departure from the existing life to different way
of living life.
They say change is constantSo let there be some
your life take a natural turn. Be spontaneous. Be alive. Be fun. Be the magic
you want in your life. Be the change you want to see in the world. Accept the
fact that things will not always be the way you want them to be. There will
always be things beyond your control.Get up and welcome a change in your life.Leave behind the doom and infuse a new life.
Here is the content of its lyrics...
CHANGE SPOKEN WORD
I have been pondering a lot about change, a very simple yet intellectual
concept that we all want but not willing to pay the price for, strange ain’t
it?, how we want change but not willing to change ourselves for the change. See
I could go on and on with easy rhythms but am not here to let loose of words
that rhythms with change, only an agent for change to help exchange your fear
for change for your will to change so you can rearrange your life for a better.
I know it tickles, so I will take it simple.
desire for change is the second strongest feeling every human being possess
behind love, it’s the very feeling behind our wanting to travel to new places, wear
new cloths, taste new food, drive new cars, experience new things, meet new
people and in general, have a new life.
have never met anyone who doesn’t want change in their lives but rarely have I
met people who want to change to see the change in their lives,
EVERYBODY WANTS CHANGE BUT NOBODY
WANTS TO CHANGE
anyone on the street and ask them about the changes they want to see, most
people could go hours talking about those changes but twist the tale a bit and
ask them what they are doing to get those changes. They will be staring at you
like a grade two student who just got asked a high school math question.
it’s easy to go crying like town criers about our problems but the questions is
what are we doing to solve them? It’s
like the more time passes, the softer we get as people, and we have changed
from an independent species to a dependent species who have become very talented
at the art of blaming others for our lacks of progress. It’s
funny how millions of people, and this is the same in every country are looking
at one central power which is usually the president or the king to bring about
the change in their lives. We have changed from people who use to ask ‘What can
I do to help’ to people who now ask ‘what will you do for me’ Most
people admire the end result of change but view the risk of change as greater
than the risk of standing still.
sure most of you are probably concluding here comes another kid from Africa
trying to make name for himself. But
before you shot me out, I just hope you will let me express my outmost desire,
that got me inspired, rewired and require me to enquire about the entire fight
for change that has now backfired making most of us retire till our time
I said, I have been pondering, at the same time wondering why we put all our
hopes on a change of regime to bring about the change in our lives, the
mentality is the equivalent of depositing a specific amount of money into your
bank account, returning home to your bed and expect it to double itself in the
shortest period of time, your vote is the deposit.
let’s just pretend for a second that the change of regime could bring about the
change in our lives. When we vote a regime we go on crying as if change is just
a press of a button away And what’s ironic is that most times we don’t even
know the change we are so craving for, Because if we did, Libya will not be in the situation they are
right now, Iraq
wouldn’t have voted for the change they did and the world power wouldn’t have
organised the most recent change of regimes which resulted in wars and led to
the increased number of refugees around the world.
get me wrong am not asking that you resist change, am just urging that you
become well informed about the changes you claim you want before you go seeking
I believe that to bring change, you got to see change miles away from the distance
future, welcome change, accommodate change, live change and then you will be changed.
about been change, I just had a long argument with my costume manager about my
choice of clothing for this video. He brought a few suggestion ranging from
suit & tie, jeans & polo shirt with sneakers but I told him that I want
change, as an agent of change, I have got to change in everywhere I can, to cut
the story short he said he wants no credit for my dress in this video.
wanting change is just and expression, to get change, you’ve got to be changed.
I get lost in the gears of my thought and it makes me wonder…
if the world was just a little bit better?
if there was food and water security?
if there was security and better education for everyone?
if there was better opportunities and employment for everyone?
are just what ifs and when we place change and what if in the same sentence, we
make it look almost as if it were a dream, something that is too far away to reach,
thus making us place our guns on safety towards change, letting change slide by,
in essence steering clear away of change.
right now time is of the essence and clearly change is in my message. This
piece should be the guidance to help you science out a balance between wanting
change and getting change in abundance, so thanks to all my audience and
remember, change is not a press of a button away but it’s also not too far from
Twenty percent of small businesses fail within their first year. Entrepreneurship is no walk in the park. In fact, the amount of new businesses that fail exceed the number that succeed. That’s why it’s more important than ever to create a unique product or service that helps you stand out from the rest.
However, don’t be discouraged. If you believe in your business, passion will prevail. On average, 75 percent of small-business owners are confident in their company. And why shouldn’t they be? They’ve turned their passion into profit. Yet, keep in mind it’s important not to be overly confident. Instead, take things one step at a time. Typically, 20 percent of small businesses fail in their first year, 50 percent in their fifth year and 70 percent after a decade of being in business.
A number of factors play into a business’s closing, such as location, the current market, cash flow and more. The number of reason most small businesses fail is due to cash flow, and California cities such …
It is incorrect to conclude that pursuing Entrepreneurship is better or worse than pursuing a role of a senior corporate executive. Being an entrepreneur is not for everyone. However, not every successful entrepreneur has the skill set to thrive in a corporate environment. Life as an entrepreneur, especially during the early stages of a business, is very challenging. There is an element of uncertainty and risk that one will not face when he/she signs up for a stable job with a large corporate. Further, the perks at the office and the lifestyle are typically not as extravagant. There are various reasons why people choose to pursue the path of entrepreneurship. Solving a problem/Addressing a need - The root of entrepreneurship is often based in solving a particular problem. For many entrepreneurs, ideas are driven by real life problems that they have faced. A prime example for this can be Brian Chesky and Joe Gebbia, founders of Airbnb. The need for a pocket-friendly accommodation other t…
Africa is a growing continent that
has great potential and natural resources. Because there are many business opportunities in Africa, most
entrepreneurs are now venturing in the continent. They take this opportunity not only to gain money but also to improve the
lives of the people in that region. To be a successful
entrepreneur in Africa, you have to look beyond the resources
the continent offers, the Gold, Diamond, Copper, Oil, Timber and many other
resources. The term “millionaire” is taking on a new meaning in Africa. It’s no longer just about the size of your bank account; any shady
politician, corrupt bureaucrat, or unscrupulous businessman on the continent
can easily claim to be a millionaire. But Africa’s new and emerging generation
of millionaires are not just excited about money. They’re also passionate about
impact; they want to create value that touches and improves people’s lives. It’s called impact
entrepreneurship. It’s the new way of making money and doing good, at the
