Are you a lone racer?


Just as the sky is large enough for every star to shine, the realm of greatness is spacious enough for the whole of mankind.

But most people don’t accomplish much in life because they choose to be lone racers instead of being team players.

One is too small a number to accomplish anything great and significant. We need others and they need us too. It takes more than just you to get yourself to the place called greatness.

So quit the lone racer’s game and learn to collaborate, team-play, leverage, build diligently and grow consistently until you reach your greatness.



On life’s highway to success


Sometime ago, while I was driving along the very busy Aba express road in Port Harcourt, I observed that the highway was partitioned to have vehicles move on various lanes.

The vehicles were many and varied: trucks, motorcycles, cars, tricycles, etc. While some moved in my direction, others were driven in the opposite direction. At certain junctions, some vehicles took new turns, depending on their destinations.

Moreover, these varied vehicles moved at different speed levels: some moved fast, some moved moderately and others moved slowly.

Life’s journey to success is akin to the scenario of the highway. We all have different destinations which determines our pace and direction. Our destinations also determine the companies we keep.

So, where is your destination? Are you going in the right direction? Are you moving at the appropriate speed level? Are you traveling with the right company?


Here or there…


Double-mindedness is a state of uncertainty in which productivity is stalled. Double-mindedness hinders one’s realisation of dreams and achievement of targets.

Double-minded folks are like the waves of a sea that rise and fall within seconds. Such people seldom accomplish anything significant in life because they are unstable, neither here nor there.

Life is programmed not to respond to options. So you must be clear about what you desire and go for it.

Banish your doubts and fears and focus on your goals and dreams. Apply yourself diligently until you reach your greatness.

A new page for your success


Each new day offers us fresh opportunities to make necessary changes, re-write the stories of our lives, dot our i’s and cross our t’s.

A new day offers us a new chance to mend faulty areas, strengthen relevant bonds and break up irrelevant ties.

A new day gives us the privilege and courage to rise from our falls, start afresh, review our goals, restrategize, make better moves and hit our targets.

A new day gives us the opportunity to unlearn, re-learn, grow, apply ourselves diligently and become better versions of ourselves.

While we have a new day, we must realize that nothing moves until it is moved. So, you must resolve to take responsibility for your life and maximize this new day to be the best you can be and achieve your greatness.

Have a beautiful day!

Don’t break your focus


Being focused is a necessary ingredient for wholesome success. If the ability to maintain one’s focus is lacking, success is consequently fragmented.

There are many distractions around you every day. These distractions are disguised as people, pleasure, or problems with just one objective: to sway your attention away from your goal.

Whenever you are distracted, you can seldom hit your goal. So, it behooves on you to keep your eyes on the prize. Keep starving your distractions and keep feeding your focus.

Apply yourself diligently until you attain your goals.

Your success is possible!






High-flyers guide


As big as an aircraft is, the success of every flight it makes is largely dependent on series of instructions and guidelines it must adhere to.

This explains why the cockpit is full of buttons and consoles with which the pilot receives and sends signals that guides the flight.

Failure is bound to happen whenever the pilot for whatever reason, despises and ignores the guidelines and signals from control tower, and the flight is bound to succeed when the guidelines are strictly followed and such is life…

Regardless of how big you are or how far you’ve reached, there are still guidelines that guarantee your success and the failure to get the right signals, run by the rules and play by the principles will certainly lead to one destination- failure.


Shine your eyes!!!


Everyone loves and wants to have opportunities. Opportunities may come in fine-looking apparels such as favourable circumstances. It may also come in work clothes such as challenges that need solutions.

However, most people lose their opportunities for various reasons: inability to recognize them, unpreparedness to maximize them, among other reasons.

Those who have made indelible marks on the sand of time have learnt the skill of identifying and maximizing opportunities and you too can.

There are opportunities everywhere, waiting to be found.

You must therefore be observant and proactive in all things. In our local parlance, we would say: Shine your eyes!

It’s your responsibility to find them, maximize them and let your greatness emerge.
