LESSONS
FROM KEEPING UP WITH KIM KARDASHIAN
Many of us are
familiar with the Kardashian women…for the sake of work…let us pretends we
don’t watch the show. Don’t be shy, I watch it, but it’s not an obsession.
The most famous
Kardashian woman, Kim, was thrown into the limelight when her sex tape hit the
internet. Yea, I never saw it once, though I was given a vivid explanation of
what went on there, but that’s none of my business anyway.
I enjoy picking out
the good I can, even in the “worst” people…she’s called the
“internet slut’…by all and sundry.. Who made me a judge?? Is my life
100% right?? Or is my bad less bad than hers?? Those are personal questions I
ask myself, and you should too.
So, what have I
learnt from KIM K???
1.
SPOKEN ENGLISH
Nothing is more
beautiful than a person with a good command of English language. Goodness!! Do
you listen to what they say on their show and how they coin their words??
I am not referring
to accent here, I mean the spoken English. It’s so deep and sound that if you
get carried away by the glamour of the show, you may not totally understand it.
 Build your vocabulary daily…use good tenses.
You may be called upon any day.
2.
RISE ABOVE HATE!!
There is nothing as demoralizing as seeing your nude picture on the internet, worse a sex tape.
Most people would commit suicide. Though Nigerians are gradually getting bolder
by the day, it would take decades before people go all that crazy.
Rise above the hate
of an abortion, an abusive ex, a leaked nude picture or story, a horrid past or
runs life, a broken home or relationship. Rise above what people would say. As
long as you are alive. There is hope.
Make mistakes, cry
your eyes out, learn from it and move on!!!!!
 3. IDENTIFY YOUR TALENTS
Kim has a talent –
going naked. I can’t call this a talent, but since she has chosen to be good at
it, be happy doing it and actually gets paid for it, it’s her talent.
What’s yours?? Is
it paying?? Does it make you happy? If it isn’t, upgrade or change course. What
are you good at?? It may look trivial and useless, put effort into it and you
will see results in no time.
Find out that thing
that ticks you…make it work for you. The Bible says, “a man’s gift maketh way for him”…
 4. HARDWORK/SMART WORK
Kim K is a
hardworking mother. She runs a reality show, which keeps you glued to your TV
despite the fact you “hate” her. She owns and runs a boutique (Dash
dolls) with her sisters. She has a book (selfish abi selfie…I don’t curr), a
perfume and so many investments… all thanks to hard and smart work.
One of the actors
in the movie “3 idiots
said, “Pursue excellence, and
success will run after you pants down”.
Look at all the people we
celebrate today, they have one thing in common, hard work.
My best friend told
me he saw something on the net, it read “May my family never be publicly
disgraced, and if they are, may the spirit of the kardashians come upon us, to
change our disgrace to fortune”. Looooool…..funny prayer right??? But it’s
the truth. Let’s channel our energy from hating and judging into doing better
things for ourselves.
So, there you have
it. I keep up with the Kardashians, but still have some time to make my life
count, I am not perfect, Kim K is not either, I chose to emulate her good
sides, and fling my head furiously away from her bad sides.
I am Andikan
Vikkytorya…I am no “georgina“.
I hope you learnt
something.
