In 2011, I watched my entire world crumble around me.

My business folded, and as the money dried up, I had to get rid of my home and luxury cars. The woman I was deeply in love with also left me because she found out about my infidelities.

I was fighting battles on all fronts and frantically trying to hold everything I cared for and had built up to that point but to no avail. I was living proof of the phrase ‘when it rains, it pours.’ and it was pouring fire and brimstone.

Nothing makes my blood boil, evokes sympathy, and puts a smile on my face, like the sight of a parent trying to shush an unruly disrespectful little child in public. My blood boils because I grew up in Nigeria, where respect for your elders was damn near drilled into you before you were born. Some babies came out of the womb saying good morning aunty to the nurses and doctors before prostrating to their parents, but I digress. The sympathy I feel is for the parent(s) because they know not what they do. …

Some of us believe that Heaven is a place in the sky filled with joy and laughter, while hell is a place below the earth full of agony and sorrow, and oh burning flames. However, I did find a narrative that makes sense to me. An author describes Heaven as an expansion of consciousness, while hell is a limitation of consciousness. I’m not here to debate these definitions, but I’m here to talk about how these five attitudes have taken me from a self-imposed hell to a place of joy, laughter, and abundance by merely choosing to expand my consciousness.

Imagine enslaving a group of people and subjecting them to mental and physical abuse and torture. Maiming and killing them, raping the women and young girls, and also forcing them to work in very harsh conditions for free as you accumulate wealth from their free labor.

As this goes on for decades and generations, these people find a way to persevere and grow exponentially in numbers. Then the unthinkable happens, they are now considered free citizens, and you no longer have control over them and their actions. Their new-found freedom threatens your finances and safety because of your fear of…
