When the word comes to mind my first perception is that this is a great continent blessed with a diverse number of things like minerals, food in plenty and a large plain area that could be used in various production activities that could earn revenue to the government in return.
I have been intrigued to write this article to understand the drive behind our African leaders and I believe this article will cut across the whole continent based on the similaityr system of management used throughout the continent.
Let’s start with the commonest thing viewed in Africa which is foreign aid for development purposes, as per me there should be strict accountability that follows up on the money donated which are in millions of dollars, let’s call a spade a spade being born and bred in Africa I can attest on how greedy our leaders are foreign governments should really inquire on how the finances were spent otherwise you guys are assisting in bringing the whole continent to a standstill with the gap between the rich and the poor widening further. Africa is like an aircraft that is being flown by pilots that did not go to flying school every leader acts as if they don’t have any experience in what they are spearheading.
Africa leadership needs diagnosing and assessment of the entire leadership culture which will be done well when there is a consensus that believes that our leadership is in a crisis state.
Change is possible by educating the youths and teenagers in schools on the importance of being patriotic while the same time educating them on the importance of having good amenities in the country for a sustainable future. If we tackle this issue of corruption once and for all we will be able to improve our living standards and increase our gross domestic product per ca pita.

To many of us, our perception of the good life has been entangled to so many attributes thus making life to be very complicated, we don't need to make any changes to our personalities or the people around us because it's something that can never be achieved even if we wanted it to happen, so the question is how do we live our lives to the fullest without altering people or anything within us.
Psychology states that all human beings are good in humanistic approach, below are five things that have kept me moving towards enjoying my life to the fullest:
I realized that before i used to focus more on other peoples well being while neglecting myself at the same time but after realizing this fundamental thing i started focusing on me more, i could go for some walk around my community and still enjoy the scenery to the fullest.
Living a day at a time.
Globally there is a slight recess in the economy and many of us have been subjected to no pay or half salaries and some have experienced late salaries due to COVID 19 epidemic but this should not limit us from living our life, i was extremely stressed at first about catering for my family and if not addressed i could be heading to high stress levels but i found a way through my 5-month-old baby who is always happy and he just ignited my life back just like that am trying to say that there are some things that are way beyond us we just need to find a way of moving on, there is something or someone when you look up to you rejuvenate yourself back by making you laugh or just happy. I have a few friends who mean everything to me so please look for friends with a toothpick a saying that i learnt from one of my dearest friend.
My first step was to include positivity in my thinking, you can do all things the Obama slogan is a fundamental thing needed to drive us in our day to day lives which makes you happy in the long run even if you fail at the first attempt.
Tracking your day's activity
At times we might think that we have wasted the whole day but when we retract our steps we could see that the day was well utilized, at times people might say that if it doesn't make you happy find a way around it for you to enjoy what you do when we were kids we all had our ambitions and desires but where we are at the moment we change the mindset of everything we do to suit our desires and while our ambitions are still intact we can always upgrade in future when you have the resources no human is limited.
Last but not least we always need to be satisfied which what we have at the moment and work smart in achieving more, realistically when a person is satisfied it creates a happy feeling personally it happens to me i don't know about you.
