Use it or lose it!

On that day I knew for sure that something beautiful dropped in my mind, one of the brightest ideas ever had just dropped in my spirit and I was excited.

A few days down the line, I realized that I couldn’t remember a thing about this beautiful idea I had celebrated with gross inaction and this wasn’t the first time it was happening to me.

Thinking about this, it got me worried and after a time of meditation, I felt like God spoke to me and said in plain terms:

“If you don’t capture ideas when they come they’ll fly away and if you don’t Nurture ideas when they come, they’ll die”…

So I learnt from that day how to act on my ideas by capturing them and nurturing them to fruition.

I also learnt that inaction paralyzes initiative.

As you read my story, you can choose to celebrate your ideas with action and not inaction.

Capture them by writing them down with a pen and paper, Nurture them by breaking them into actionable steps that will birth the dream, because if you don’t use it, you will lose it!

Plan for success

Screenshot_2018-06-20-11-03-38.png

It’s amazing how many people intend to succeed and accomplish much in life without a plan and they can’t name one achievement all through the first half of this year, not because they never desired something good but just because they had no plan.

 

Truth be told, if you must end the year with a better output, then you gotta plan for success!
Planning is not complex.. it is a written down formula for actualizing and replicating success.

 

As you plan, you must learn to plan with a pen and paper…. Always write down your plans, which should consist of: Goals, Objectives, Strategies, Targets and Tasks.

 

A good plan reveals your “what” and your “how” to you on how to clearly move from dream to actualization.

 

Now, regardless of how the first half turned out to be, in this second half refuse to remain ignorant or casual about your dreams…

 

Plan your way to success!

One of the reasons many problems in our world today has remained unsolved is because many people do nothing with the dreams and ideas in their imagination, many people have died and were buried with their ideas unused and have made the graveyard the wealthiest place on Earth.

You must refuse to be passive with your dreams and ideas because inaction paralyzes initiative.

The world will not pay you for what you want to do but for what you have done.

Success is in the doing..

No more procrastination!!!

Take that bold step now

You want to write a book, you want to start a business, you want to invent something new…. Hey!

“Do it afraid…”

Take action now and move your dreams and ideas to actualization.

Just do it and succeed with your dreams!!!

 

 

 

 

Find your Place, Mind your Lane, Run your Race

Very recently, I read a post from a dear friend of mine which she titled “off the bandwagon” where in she told her story about self realization, of how she has quit various aspects of business she had been involved in, as soon as she realized her rightful place- her strength zone.

As I continued reading, I remembered how one of my role models shared with me how he shut down his consulting firm which has become a household name in the consulting industry in Nigeria just because he realized that business consulting wasn’t his thing.

They both jumped of the band wagon as soon as they realized they were out of their strength zone.

So now is that time to ask yourself: are you within or without your strength zone?

Your strength zone is that place you are wired and fired for, it’s the place you were created for a was created for you. It’s the place where your gifts find expression and you thrive in it seamlessly.

It’s okay to get out of your comfort zone, but never leave your gift zone!

Self realization will help you discover if your current position and location is within your strength zone and taking you closer to your dreams and goals and if not you need to get off the band wagon too.

If you truly desire success, you must Find your Place, Mind your Lane and Run your Race..

Change your world!

How-Empathy-Can-Change-Your-Life-and-Our-World-C

Recently I walked into an office in the beautiful city of Port Harcourt and something in that office caught my attention.

It was the unique electric socket I saw there. It was so unique because it had in it a USB port in addition to the regular 3-pin plugin, so that a phone’s USB cable can be sloted directly into the port without the plug head and I was so thrilled with this new innovation.

It made me realize how that people are thinking creatively for innovations and solutions to change their world.

Every invention or innovation was birthed out of the quest to think out the solution to a challenge or a need somewhere in the world and that was how the electric bulb, the aeroplane, the telephone and all others became a reality.

There’s no limitation anywhere except the one you placed in your mind. It’s time to lift up every bar of limitation, open your eyes to see solutions and possibilities, open your minds to think creatively for innovations and apply yourself diligently to change your world.

Now is the time to think and change your world!

Stay Relevant

stay_relevant

As I recently watched my little cousin prepare for his entrance exam into secondary school, I was shocked when I saw with him the renowned Ugo C. Ugo’s nationwide common entrance examination preparation book- a phenomenal book I used during my time, over 20 years ago.

As I continued to wonder in amazement, it dawned on me that the content of the book has remained relevant over the years and this is one secret of significant brands globally-  Consistency and Relevance.

The death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ which we commemorate in the Easter celebration is another perfect example that showcases significant relevance for over 2000 years.

And as we live and apply ourselves daily, we must stay relevant and consistently deliver value towards the significant advancement of life and humanity.

Enjoy the blessings of the Easter celebration!

Power of collaboration (my experience)

Very recently, a senior friend called to fix a business meeting with me, so I confirmed my availability and as we met, she informed me that she wants us to work together on a particular project.

After all said and done, I was an associate consultant on the project and a part of the team that delivered a high level teamwork and communication training for one of the foremost multinational oil companies in Nigeria.

Collaboration made it possible!

Every great feat is achievable through collaboration, because one is too small a number to achieve greatness.

We must always realize that two or more good heads are better than one and on our journey to greatness; we must be relevant and valuable and seek relevant and valuable collaborations that significantly repositions us for greatness.
