Progress is impossible without change, and those who cannot change their minds cannot change anything. Development means getting nearer to the place you want to be. And if you have taken a wrong turning, then to go forward does not get you any nearer. If you are on the wrong road, progress means doing an about-turn and walking back to the right road; and in that case the man who turns back soonest is the most progressive man.

Criticism is an act passing judgment for subject issue of judgment or the act f analyzing and evaluating or judging a quality of work, performance, deeds etc. Criticism can be constructive or destructive. . But it is unjustified when someone merely picks on another person for no evidence, or out of personal pique. Below are basic guidelines to adapt at the time of criticising for an issue or deeds. It should be to point out a fault without destroying a person’s self esteem. Sometimes certain people derive pleasure from criticizing others. It may be due to jealousy of someone in a better position vis-à-vis education, wealth, power or influence. The critic may not have a clue about the problem or may have his own blinkered view of it. This Criticism for Mohamed Hashi is simply because of his position as a minster. Wiseman is the man who takes down bricks thrown at him and builds a strong foundation. Have a positive self image. Never let criticism rile you or put you on the defensive. Have a positive attitude to someone who offers constructive criticism. Criticism against Mohamed Hashi is not more than emotional or jealousy rather than genuine.


There is no greater glory than love, nor any greater punishment than jealousy. Criticism if any should be based on ethics .Ethics knows the difference between what you have a right to do and what is right to do. Jealousy is an emotion, and the word typically refers to the negative thoughts and feelings of insecurity, loss of something of great personal value, particularly in reference to a human connection. Jealousy often consists of a combination of emotions such as anger, resentment, inadequacy, helplessness and disgust. Jealousy is often reinforced as a series of particularly strong emotions and constructed as a universal human experience. Some people are unconsciously guilty because they believe the victories of others are coming at their expense. Fear the success of someone is like fighting with an invisible. I never had in mind in the past that human being denies the achievements and progress attained by their leadership. But this is new observable fact has become conscious at present. Successful leaders create and pursue SMART goals, which are specific, measurable, attainable, relevant and timely, but the imitator is deficient of these principles, which we believe developed the progress we have at present. Fear or denial the success of someone else creates only internal conflict to self. in the event anyone to be a leader, he must be partner with the success his country, as one cannot lead people simply in the name of opposition, he must come alongside to go forward with his people. Blocking progress is purely a jealousy and that is purely UN-Islamic.


Visions are born with in the soul of the man. it is no benefit to anyone block or deny the success planned, achievement and completed by someone, as this opposite of failure that brings fame of prosperity. if anyone would to become a factual leader, he should admit the progress in the picture attained by other before he advocates promising slogans, which is yet o be proved. We have our selves as to why some people achieve success and others fail. Plainly they don’t deny the progress observed and noticed by every sincere citizen. Taken into account the achievement attained by this minster four years in office, it is honour and privilege for us recognizing him the man of year 2014 in Somaliland in view of his accomplishment. Those who deny progress set off a process of five stages denial, anger, bargaining, depression and finally and acceptance of the reality on the ground, as no one can hide the sun, the moon and the truth. Ethics is the difference between what is right and what is wrong.


We should encourage and appreciate those who are successful in their fields rather them making for them false propaganda which all of them baseless and unfounded.Achievement does bring inner happiness, independence and pride in a job well done. Reliance crates low self esteem, depression and doesn’t encourage people to be the best that they can be. It keeps them down and makes slaves out of them. It makes them vulnerable to people that want to exploit them. It appears that some people deny success, because it takes a lot of work to be successful, it doesn’t just happen overnight like magic. It takes hours of hard work and it takes living frugally until you achieve your goals. Many people find it easier to sit back and be dependent but in doing so, they cheapen their lives and give themselves nothing to be proud of, or look forward to. Last, but not the least, our aviation minster (Mohamed Hashi) has upgraded Hargeisa Egal international airport from none category to category No.7. The roots of all goodness lie in the soil of appreciation for goodness. Expressing appreciation to someone is not that hard. You just need to remember to express your appreciation when the opportunity arises like in the of Hargeisa airport. Appreciation softens the blow of constructive criticism. It opens the door for critical appraisal, without putting anybody on the back foot. Appreciation allows room for improvement.The Tradition of selecting a Man of the Year was introduced in 1927 Time magazine and our aviation minister, Mohamed Hashi is recognized as the man of Year in 2014 in view of his achievement four years as a minster and those who speak against him should tell the society what they have done for the public and it is unethical to deny the achievement accomplished by others simply on tribal grounds. Be glad about the success done by someone does not make you less important. This is not a war of ego. Your words of appreciation reveal your humble and generous nature. By appreciating others, your value does not depreciate! On the contrary, you look good in the eyes of others.You will find in the Google my previous article interconnected to Egal international airport titled as “ President Ahmed Mohamed Mohamoud has reopened Egal Hargeisa Airport having an imperative icon.
