YOMI’S SCHOOL OF THOUGHT – “Every being is unique in his/her own ways, our individuality and ingenuity varies, the way we are wired are unique in the sense that there will never be another us. That taken let us bear in mind that our core responsibility therefore is to be the best version of ourselves, self awareness is important in the game of life.
We must transcend all creed and dogmas by quieting the noise of society and go within, within us is an ocean waiting to explode, we must guide this fire by preventing society from putting it off. Lastly, there is a notion that has be written in past called the Finite game and the infinite game, the finite game is played to win or lose while the infinite game is played to keep the game moving, so for me its not about winning or loosing but about a continuous and conscious strive where I refuse to go into that good night sleep at the end of each day but rather I range and range against the dying of the night. As Allan Harrington said “we must never forget that we are cosmic revolutionaries not studious conscripted to advance the natural order that kills everyone, having invented the gods we can turn into them. So let’s go dream bigger than ever before.
ADVICE TO DREAMER’S – aim for individuality and don’t lose your identity for in that lies great power to success. All fears, anxiety and doubt must be removed, for no one perceive truth in this State_yomibas
