Can we really die empty?

So today, i sat at the sport Center looking at Sprinters and how happy they were living their dreams.

As i sat there thoughts streamed through my mind. I began to have memories of my younger teenage days.

I remembered how good i was in field and track events.

I was a sportman. I stumbled on that part of me while we were organizing sporting competitions in secondary school.

The day i got chosen to run, i was pointed out because there was no one else to do it.

No one really believed i could run any far because i looked really fragile.

I never believed i could do it either. But i just gave it my best shot because i felt i had nothing to lose.

That day, i ran hundred metres then two hundred and i won. I felt surprised at myself. I went on to win many more competitions.

Today while seating at the Sport center, i saw people doing just this. Running. And then with nostalgic feelings, i remembered all the fond memories i had.

I remembered the dreams i had about becoming a great Sprinter. I remembered my aspirations and how i wanted to bring everything i had to the field.

I don’t know exactly why it happened but i felt a deep sigh of regret escape my lips. I never lived those dreams. I didn’t give myself the chance to do this. It hurts.

So today as i sat right there, i told myself once again, I might never get to express this part of me. Never.

Look! You might think i’m too young to say this but, i’ve seen my life the way it’s going. I may never become a Sportsman. I might only live my life admiring those who became sportmen.

I feel a bit sad writing about this. But, such is life.


Whatever you have to do. You have to do it while you have time.

Seasons change. Time ticks away. Opportunity ends.

I believe we can really die empty if we decide to pursue the things that lie close to our hearts, when it’s still time.

I love you.


As someone people look up to, is it wrong to feel down?

At a point i got really down today.

I felt so sad that i just got to begin to wonder if it’s wrong to feel down.

Is it wrong to feel sad? I began to ask myself.

I was like, hey Vick, you’re supposed to be an inspiration to a whole lot of people out there. You’re supposed to cheer them up and help them find a reason to get going so why would you say you’re feeling down?

I’ve seen folks live fake lives so they can keep being what people think they are. But that’s really silly to me. It’s much like dying from the inside out.

I mean, you can’t cover a wound within forever. Over time it will spread out and people will get to see it.

I think sometimes despite your standing or occupation, you really have to own up to your feelings.

It helps you sort out ways to help yourself deal with it. Denying your emotional states only ends up getting things worse.

If you’re feeling sad, accept it and find out what’s causing it. If you’re feeling suicidal don’t keep it to yourself. Talk to people if you have to. Everyone is dealing with one thing or the other. Stop feeling that people will laugh at you for being honest.

I just said it tonight. I’m really down and out. I know what’s causing it. I’m going to try to deal with it but first, I’m starting with this novel.

Happy Sunday to you.

Have you ever felt down and out? How did you deal with it?


Welcome Victor Winners Journal 2.0

Yay! I’m excited we’re back again, stronger wiser and better. Back at what we’ve been doing. Adding value to lives. Inspiring you to dream and helping you question realities around you.

That’s exactly what Victor winners journal 2.0 is all about. It’s going to be a journey I’d like us to take together. So i wanted to start this launch with something not so peculiar.

Eh hen. I’m sure you’ve heard about the 21 day habit formula right? Ok if you’ve not heard it. Let me explain it briefly. One guy said that err… People can now form habits after doing one particular action consistently for 21 days.

I don’t know how credible this is though most people confirmed it. But as they say, seeing is believing so I’m going to try mine. I’m going to be updating this journal at least once,  every single day for the next 21 days. I want to see how this will become a habit.

Yes. If it happens i form a new habit of blogging, blogging here every day, i will apply this in other areas of my life and also teach others to do this. If it doesn’t work, i will write series of posts to disprove this assertion.

Are you joining me on this? I’m ready to start my daily documentary series within the next 21 days. Let’s get to work. What habit do you want to form in the next 21 days?

PS: There are so many programs ear marked for the Victor Winners Journal 2.0. This includes celebrating our fans, promotion of their stuff and connecting them to opportunities.

You’ll have so much to learn as we grow together. Let the fun begin. Victor Winners.
