Your best means

FB_IMG_1562797672110

Very recently, in one of my flight experiences, I paid keen attention to the pilot as he gave several information about the flight, letting us know our height at flight, the distance covered and all that.

I also observed that at the exact time we expected to touch down, the rear tires touched the ground and the plane began to taxi to its halt.

As we received the pilot’s welcome and thank you notes and disembarked from the plane, it dawned on me that our means often determines a lot about the process and the results we achieve in life.

While I flew to my destination, some other individuals drove down to the same destination but we certainly did not have same experiences and processes, although we may have similar results (arriving at same destination). I arrived earlier and a lot easier than the person who came by road.

So, while you define your preferred destination in life, it is your responsibility to discern and choose wisely what your best means of arriving your destination would be, as your means determines your processes and results.

Cheers to your success!

How far can you see?

In a coaching session with a new client, I asked him: “what will be the state of your business in twenty years?” He sat back, starred at me, tried to think for a while, then said to me: “sincerely sir, I have never thought about this”.

So I began to share with him about the gift of far-sightedness and how it is one unique factor that makes people great and relevant.

Many people are short-sighted in their reasoning, they don’t see or think beyond the immediate; consequently, their success is short-lived.

You will possess as far as you can see. While we must appreciate the present, we must realize that there is a future which must be captured in a mental picture. After capturing it, effective planning and strategy will keep you positioned for opportunities.

Far-sightedness is a gift and a quality that can be cultivated and optimized to achieve greatness.

How far can you see?

Refresh, Refocus & Refire

Surprises usually spring up in the game of soccer. Sometimes, team X performs well in the first half, gaining a substantial percentage of the ball possession. But as the game proceeds into the second half, not only does team Y outplay team X, it also goes on to win the match. I will share with you the secret behind such a phenomenon.

The magic happened in the dressing room at half time. Every good coach knows how to optimize the half time to his advantage. Right there in the dressing room, the coach brings the team together and does three basic things. He REFRESHES their strategy, REFOCUSES their goal and REFIRES the team.

You too can maximise this strategy of the dressing room. As the first half of this year winds up, consistently anticipate the next phase, critically evaluate the present with a heart of gratitude and consciously plan for the next phase.

And as you do this, ensure that you REFRESH your strategies, REFOCUS your goals and REFIRE your mind for good success in the second half of this year and beyond.

Your success is possible!

Dream • Create • Succeed

Everyone created by God was given creative abilities at birth and one purpose for this is simply to provide timeless solutions to the every increasing problems of mankind and his environment.

So, recently I bumped into the picture above and it’s a show of creativity, where some young folks in Lagos Nigeria are making use of not-in-use buses to set up a fast food centers and I must say this is a lovely concept.

They have shown that creativity is not complex but the ability to make use of resources available to turn dreams and ideas into unique solutions that meet needs and solve problems around you.

When we truly begin to explore our creative prowess, we would discover that nothing is impossible and that no resource is a waste, as everything can be revamped and creatively recycled to meet needs and solve problems in our world.

Its up to you.

Choose to create!

Get wisdom

One of the wisest men who lived and walked the surface of the earth was King Solomon of ancient Israel. History tells so much of his unequivocal wisdom and wealth to which he gave the credits to his supernatural encounters with God.

His words, songs, and counsels were so full of wisdom that thousands of years after he lived, billions of people around the world today still read and make reference to them as they remain relevant to present day realities; what awesome wisdom!

Wisdom is simply the application of godly knowledge and Solomon in one of his books wrote: “Wisdom is the principal thing, therefore get wisdom and in all your getting, get understanding”. He spoke as a man who explored and walked in uncommon realms and dimensions of wisdom.

Wisdom will always set a person apart from the crowd.

In a world like ours where the ordinary is becoming a norm, we all need wisdom to set us apart in all we do.

This wisdom is not farfetched. King Solomon tells us that we have a responsibility to ‘Get Wisdom’. Wisdom is readily available in various information packages: books, audio/visuals and other proven materials that are “gettable”.

So if you want to stand out and be distinguished among others, you need to “Get wisdom” and apply it intentionally.

Birth your Greatness out of nothing!!!

One thing that has constantly stunned the world is how that greatness emerges out of nothingness!

Out of some of the most impossible backgrounds and situations of life, many of which perfectly fits the “can any good thing come out of Nazareth?” question, phenomenal men and women have risen out of obscurity to fame. They have stunned the world with amazing and excellent results of their gifts, strengths and talents.

Here are some examples:

Jack Ma — from the slums of Asia to one of the world’s reputable billionaires

Queen Hadassah — from a poor Hebrew orphan to Queen of the great Persian empire

Steve Harris — from being a 2-time college dropout to Nigeria’s leading life and business strategist

Two underlining factors of these people are: The God-factor and their diligence.

So, don’t be discouraged, don’t be distracted, keep working, keep learning, keep grinding, keep cultivating diligently, keep growing and don’t stop trusting in God until you begin to reap your harvest of excellent results that will stun your world.

Don’t stop!

One of life’s greatest discoveries is that man was designed and created to grow, lead, and succeed.

However, the limit to which you grow, lead and succeed is largely dependent on how much responsibility you are willing to take for your life and for all you do.

Wherever you are in life today is as a result of leadership: someone led you there: either you or someone responsible for you.

The core essence of leadership is to birth transformation. So, every facet of our society (schools, families, religious centers, marketplaces, and so on) is in dire need of good leadership.

You were born with the capacity to lead and to influence the world with your gifts, talents and strength.

The world is waiting for you!

Take responsibility today.

Grow, lead, and succeed.
