From as long as I can remember, I’ve been a fan of the intensity and passion that Formula 1 brings to the screen. During Formula 1 season, I always look forward to the race build-up which starts on Friday and finishes on Sunday. It will be something that I will live to love for the rest of my life!
Encouraging views from years of teaching learners to drive
As I wondered who I could talk to about the meaning of life as a journey, my mind immediately turned towards my old driving instructor. His name is John. You know Rod Stewart, the singer? He might as well be John’s brother, for their resemblance is striking.
Life issues and baggage allowances
When fears are grounded, dreams take flight.
After discussing what it means to take off and head towards dreams, I had a question for the pilot. We all know that when it comes to flying, there are baggage allowances, with slight variations according to airlines but in line with aviation requirements.
The journey of a thousand miles starts with one step.
I’ve heard of countless people who rose from zero’s to heroes after believing in themselves and choosing to pursue their hidden or undiscovered gifts. However, I’ve seen so many people who could have been somebody’s or gone places had they not been knocked down by life’s events.
I had underestimated how far the Pilot would go with discussions about life as a journey. Knew that he was bright, sincere and wise yet somehow concluded that he wouldn’t have much to say since he dealt with most things technical. That was my opinion. In a bid to make sure that we were singing from the same hymn sheet; I gave him a pre-flight brief which consisted of whys, who’s, what and how’s of what we were trying to achieve as a result of the interview. He listened intently.
He is that type of person. Present. Focused.
Born and raised in the United Kingdom to parents who hail from Nigeria; the Thoughtful Pilot takes thousands of content customers to international destinations as a Commercial Pilot. His journey is one of trials, tribulations and sheer determination fuelled by a deeply rooted passion for what he does for a living; taking Boeing 737s to the skies! That passage has given him a different perspective on the meaning of life; it’s ups and downs and ultimately the role of faith in shaping one’s destiny.
