Cameroon Film Festival working towards ameliorating the Cameroon Film Industry!

The award night which took place on April 29th 2017 under the patronage of the Minister of Arts and Culture Mr. Narcisse Mouelle Kombi was a night filed with grandeur hosted by Nene Jimla .

The Cameroon International Film Festival is an initiative of a Cameroonian Filmmaker, Agbor Gilbert with the aim of promoting Cameroonian Film industry through workshops with international filmmakers, creating partnerships and awarding excellence in Cameroon and International film. CAMIFF is a 6- days event that takes place in Buea at the foot of beautiful Mt Cameroon. This event entails entertaining activities rich and diverse in culture. Unfortunately, we could only participate during the last 2 days and I must say it was an amazing experience. Meeting, dialoguing and networking with so many talented individuals is something we would wanna do over and over again.

The Truth About Your Attitude

What is Attitude?

Dear Reader,

Your attitude is the composite of your thoughts, feelings and actions.

Let’s take a look at how each of these factors affect your attitude:

Thoughts: Your conscious mind has the ability to accept, reject or ignore ANY idea that flows into your consciousness.
If that idea isn’t internalized, it will have no effect on your physical body.
But let’s take a look at what happens when that idea is internalized…

Your subconscious mind has to accept anything that is impressed upon it. And whatever is impressed upon the subconscious mind dictates the vibration of the body. The nature of the idea that is impressed upon the subconscious mind determines the vibration or the feeling that is expressed.

Feelings: If the idea is negative, you will express negative emotions. However, if it is positive, your emotions or vibrations will be positive.

• Actions: The body, which is the instrument of the mind, is the only medium through which the conscious and subconscious mind working together are able to express themselves.

Whatever idea is impressed upon the subconscious mind MUST be expressed through the vibration of the molecules in the body. When that vibration becomes strong the body must literally move into action.

For example, when your thoughts and feelings, or your conscious and subconscious mind, are in an orderly state (or in harmony) that order will be expressed in your actions. You will be calm, focused and productive.

When your attitude shifts, everything in your world shifts

As you can see, your attitude is determined by the nature of the ideas that you choose and permit yourself to get emotionally involved in. The physical expression is automatic. It doesn’t matter if the choice is conscious or unconscious. It is what it is. You can say, “I didn’t know,” but that’s too bad; you lose. In life there is no allowance for ignorance. So I hope you clearly understand why you should never blame another person, or conditions or circumstances for any challenge you have in life…

If you are having a problem, your conscious choice is where the problem originates. Similarly, conscious choice is where are all future success and genius begins.

It’s your time!
