From ideas to prosperity!!!


As we listened to our facilitator during one of our training sessions, my friend who sat beside me exclaimed, “I got it, I got it, I got it”, signaling that he had just received a brilliant idea. Then I quickly remembered the popular “Eureka” story.

Days and weeks and months and years have come and gone, but my friend seldom remembers that he once had that great and brilliant idea. This is, sadly, the case with many people today.

Take some time out to think of all the golden ideas you received since the year began and imagine the outstanding results you would have birthed only if you acted on those ideas and moved them from the intangible realm to the tangible.

Ideas are dream seeds that you can sow, cultivate and harvest when the time ripens. We, therefore, must be intentional with the ideas we receive because each time we fail to act on our ideas, we waste our opportunities to be prosperous.


Plan for success


Success means different things to different people. While many leave their success to chance, some others have learnt to plan and properly position themselves for it.

Jesus Christ explained one of the unbreakable principles of planning and strategy when He said that a person who wishes to build a house must first sit down and count the cost, to be sure that he has what it takes to begin and finish the building.

A good plan is like a road map. It not only shows the final destination but also the way to get there. So, as we approach a new year, you need to set goals and draw up a plan that clearly shows the path of action you must take to achieve those goals in the new year and beyond. This is the pathway to success.

Tomorrow is now!!!


Few months ago, a friend of mine announced on his Facebook page that he had moved his focus from 2018 to 2019.


While some people felt it was too early to talk about focusing on the year ahead of us, I felt that my friend had made one of his best decisions. Besides, while I was speaking at a conference last month, I also announced to my audience that I had already stepped into 2019.


My audience starred at me awfully; then I began to explain to them that “Tomorrow is now”.


While many people wait for tomorrow to happen to them, others who have learned to take advantage of their “now” happen to tomorrow.


Dr. Myles Munroe puts it this way, “If you fail to plan for the future, you have planned to fail in the future”.


Don’t be a part of the wandering generality who leave their lives to chance and are casual about their future; instead, choose to be a part of the few who are intentional about their lives.


If you really want to win tomorrow, don’t wait for tomorrow to show up before you prepare to win; rather cease the moment to prepare for the success of tomorrow. Moreover, if you want to win in 2019, avoid the continuous distractions of 2018 or even the previous years. Look ahead and plan for success in 2019.

Stay focused


In the words of the Biblical King Solomon, to everything there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven. There is a time to begin and a time to conclude.


As we begin to conclude this year that has brought many memorable experiences, we must choose to stay focused because focus remains a constant ingredient for success.


We must stay focused on our visions, goals, and dreams, and we must stay focused on winning, regardless of the discouragements, controversies, and distractions around us.


At the same time, we must also engage the forces of wisdom, faith, and diligence to ensure a beautiful conclusion of this year and an amazing commencement of the year ahead of us.
