There is a word, an Igbo word, that I think about whenever I think about the power structures of the world, and it is “nkali.”
It’s a noun that loosely translates to “to be greater than another.”
Like our economic and political worlds, stories too are defined by the principle of nkali: How they are told, who tells them, when they’re told, how many stories are told, are really dependent on power. Power is the ability not just to tell the story of another person, but to make it the definitive story of that person.”
WWN Reflection by @JulietKego: Question – WHAT exactly are you selling and WHO are you selling it to? One of the most important lessons I was taught a few years ago in my MBA class is the ‘Reason behind the reason.’
That is why are people/companies REALLY in business? If you understand your big WHY, it drives your priorities, strategies, plans and success.
In the first picture above are 2 of 5 WWN’s 2015 Scholarship Recipients: Chidinma Ezeudu and Blessing Ochomma of St Kizito Girls’ Secondary School. (Future courses of study: Petroleum and Chemical Engineering Respectively).
And in the second picture, I asked to take a picture with them, because like I told them, based on their passions, academic excellence, leadership skills, sense of humanity and creative abilities, they are sure to achieve greatness in the near future. (And I’d love to be a part of their story)!😀
Are you an artist, speaker, coach, poet, writer, (or passionate about anything else, for that matter), and you’re looking for ways to monetize your passions?
