Gor Mahia are KPL champs: I said so munching pizza

Dan Sserenukuma

With vicarious thrill supplemented by the right amount of adrenaline as was expected- and of course a copious injection of occasional sharp deadly involuntary blows I generously gave the immediate ardent K’ogalo fanatic seated next to me, are some of the moments that kept my sitting allowances in contact with the stadium seats.www.davidochieng.wordpress.com

Awesome.

I am still certain that the definition of a deadly soccer player- who is capable of taking lives of opponents in 90 minutes, preferably a goalkeeper or a defender using the greatest of techniques, even if it involves using heavy artillery like a gun to shoot the left back in the chest, a sword to remove the right back’s tethers and of course a grenade to blow the head of the keeper is Sserenkuma.

Danny Sserenkuma.. Ooh Danny.

Without Rama Salim’s help this time, he managed to break through the Tusker FC defence using a shield, pierced the centre back with a machete and having made sure that the sword completely decimated him, drew his riffle and pulled the trigger, that just wounded the goalkeeper enough to allow him fumble the ball into the net.

The next combination of Sserenkuma and Rama will be lethal- over the next two games. You probably know what that means to the title race.

Last night was long, but then again, how could I sleep!
The title race is over and Gor Mahia are the Tusker Premier League champions for 2012.. You bet it.. I said it.. All this while eating Pizza.. 
Life is sooo good.

The Gor Mahia- Tom Mboya axis

Ever wondered why Gor Mahia fanatics visit the Tom Mboya monument in Nairobi’s Central business district after matches?

I have been asked this question several times by people who want to know why.

And by others who think that what we do is silly.

Today I will attempt a short and precise answer for the query… from one of the club’s ardent fanatics.

Togetherness

There’s a benign apparition of the name ‘Mahia’

It can be hard to explain but I say it is more of a superstitious than usual feeling, as the fans gather around the monument, moments after thrashing their opponents. 

It evokes spirits, raises morale and binds one closer to the cause.

Not easy to say, but it is a thing that only matters when you are a K’ogalo fan.. when you are in the groove.. When you are part of the army.

Culture

It’s our culture. You can’t take it from us; The migration of the fans from the stadium, the manageable decibels from our vuvuzelas, the just inconveniencing songs of joy every match-day and the occasional but fading arrogance displayed by the emotional fanatics. 

They are inborn. They are innate. Yes, they are!

They are K’ogalo.www.davidochieng.woedpress.com

I had two dads       

Having two dads as advisors offered me the perspective of contrasting points of view: one of a rich man and one of a poor man. The problem was that my rich dad was not yet rich, and my poor dad not yet poor. Both were just starting out in their careers; both were struggling with money and families.

But, regardless of those facts, both had very different points of view on the subject of money.
One dad would say, “The love of money is the root of all evil.” The other, “The lack of money is the root of all evil.” Having two dads – and loving them both – forced me to think about, and ultimately choose, a way of thinking for myself.

I had to think about each dad’s advice and, in doing so, gained valuable insights into the power and effect of one’s thoughts on one’s life. For example: My poor dad had a habit of saying, “I can’t afford it.” My rich dad forbade those words to be used. He insisted that I say, “How can I afford it?” One is a statement, the other a question. One lets you off the hook; the other forces you to think. My rich dad would explain that by automatically saying the words “I can’t afford it” your brain stops working. By asking the question “How can I afford it?” your brain is put to work.

Exercise Your Mind

My rich dad did not mean ‘buy everything you want.’ He was, though, fanatical about exercising your mind – the most powerful computer in the world. My rich dad said: “My brain gets stronger every day because I exercise it. The stronger it gets, the more money I can make.” He believed that automatically saying “I can’t afford it” was a sign of mental laziness.

Although both dads worked hard, I noticed that my Poor Dad had a habit of putting his brain to sleep when it came to money matters. My Rich Dad, on the other hand, made a habit of exercising his brain. The long-term result was that one dad grew stronger financially and the other grew weaker.

 



Our Thoughts Shape Our Lives

Being a product of two strong dads allowed me the luxury of observing the effects that different thoughts have on one’s life. I noticed that people really do shape their lives through their thoughts.

The power of our thoughts may never be measured or appreciated, but it became obvious to me as a young boy that there was value and power in being aware of my thoughts and how I expressed myself. I noticed that my poor dad was poor not because of the amount of money he earned – which was significant – but because of his thoughts and actions. As a young boy having two fathers I became acutely aware of being careful in deciding which thoughts I chose to adopt as my own and to whom should I listen – my rich dad or my poor dad?

At the age of nine I decided to listen to and learn from my rich dad about money. In doing so, I chose not to listen to my poor dad – my real dad – even though he was the one with all the college degrees.

Dad Differences

One of my dads is a multi-millionaire. The other is a poor man. Why? Very simply, it comes down to their respective attitudes toward money and life. Take a look at the differences… and think about where you fit…

Poor Dad vs. Rich Dad

My Poor Dad Says                        My Rich Dad Says

“My house is an asset.”               “My house is a liability.”

Rich dad says, “If you stop working today, an asset puts money in your pocket and a liability takes money from your pocket. Too often people call liabilities assets. It’s important to know the difference between the two in the Real World not the assumed.

“I can’t afford it.”                        “How can I afford it?”

The statement “I can’t afford it” shuts down your thinking. By asking the right question, you mind opens up and looks for answers.

“The reason I’m not rich is because I have you kids.”    “The reason I must be rich is because I have you kids.”

“I’m not interested in money.”                                           “Money is power.”

“When it comes to money, play it safe – don’t take risks.”    “Learn how to manage risk.”

“Pay myself last.”                                                                   “Pay myself first.”

Rich Dad always took a percentage off the top of any income he earned. He put this money into an investment account that went toward purchasing his assets. Poor Dad spent all his money first and never had any remaining for investments.

Believed that the company you worked for or the government should take care of your financial needs.  Believed in financial self-reliance and financial responsibility.

Focused only on academic literacy.  Focused on financial literacy as well as academic literacy.

Learned only the vocabulary of academia.  Learned the vocabulary of finance – “Your words are the most valuable tools you have.”

“I work for my money.”                                          “My money works for me.”

Thought that making more money would solve his financial problem.  Knew that financial education was the answer to his financial problems: “It’s not how much money you make that’s important – it’s how much money you keep and how long you keep it.”

Understanding the difference in attitudes between rich dad and poor dad – is essential to taking the first steps to financial freedom.
