3 golden keys that will unlock opportunities for you this year


As I welcome you to another week, I’d like to also share a secret about this year: “2019 came with lots of opportunities”.

As simple and short as it sounds, this is the truth and only few peoples know it.

There are 3 golden keys that guarantee access to the opportunities that this year has come with.

1. ASK: Only people who ask for opportunities this year will receive them. Don’t be afraid to ask for opportunities.

2. SEEK: The opportunities in this year will only be available to those who diligently seek them. If you’re shy to seek opportunities, you’ll never find them.

3. KNOCK: Sometimes, opportunities are hidden behind certain doors, waiting to open up to those who knock. You’ve got to knock passionately until the doors open up.

Therefore in 2019 and beyond, you must train your mind to see opportunities, your eyes to recognize opportunities, and your hands to maximize opportunities.

It is your responsibility to ASK for opportunities, SEEK opportunities, and KNOCK on the doors of opportunities until you find the success that you desire.

19 lies you must not believe in 2019


Many people are limited in life simply because of what they choose to believe.

Your belief creates your philosophy and expectations that births your reality.

If you truly want to conquer in this year, here are 19 lies you must never believe or accept:

1. Success is for a select few: The only person that can exclude or include you in the game of success is you. There’s space in the sky for every star to shine.

2. There are no opportunities this year: Only lazy failures accept this trash! Ask for opportunities, Seek it diligently, Knock on its doors until they open up for you.

3. The economy is opposed to you: This is so unwise to accept because millions of people succeed daily in the same economy, why won’t you?

4. You don’t need a dream/vision/plan to succeed: How can you succeed when you never pictured it and how can you win when you never prepared for it? Be wise!

5. You are disadvantaged: Many people celebrated across the world today were said to be disadvantaged but they became deaf to that saying and have succeeded tremendously. Do you still think you’re disadvantaged?

6. You don’t have a purpose: Many people who think so of themselves never rise out of obscurity. God is no waster, if He had no purpose for your life, you wouldn’t have been created.

7. You’re self sufficient: This is a mediocre thought. Did you create yourself? Did you breastfeed yourself? What makes you think you can succeed all by yourself?

8. You are empty: If you still believe that you have nothing to offer to your world, then you have no reason to be alive and you may just die a nobody.

9. You’re destined to be average: That’s what the racist used to think of the Blacks until the latter proved them wrong, excelled and became the best in various fields of endeavor. You too, regardless of your background, can rise to the top and be the best.

10. You have all the time in the world: This is so laughable because time, they say, waits for no one. Every moment counts: waste your time and waste your life.

11. You have no need for growth and improvement: When you stop growing, you increase your irrelevance, the world leaves you behind and you start dying.

12. You’re too young to make an impact: The world is governed by impact makers, both old and young. Many young people have changed the course of things through disruptive innovations. What are you waiting for?

13. You can’t be a leader: Then you will die a follower and never realize your true potential. You can become a leader when you take responsibility for the change you want.

14. You need someone’s approval to succeed: You may never find that person because the world system has no place to accommodate a mediocre in the game of success. You only need your approval to succeed!

15. You can’t break that negative cycle: If you think so and choose to live with what is killing you, then you will keep depreciating in value by the day. But you can break that cycle and step into victory.

16. There’s an elevator to success: No way! No shortcut! There are only steps you must take, prices you must pay, principles you must follow to succeed.

17. It’s not about the container but the content: Another lie! Your body is the container of your life on earth, if it breaks down, your life breaks down. Therefore, personal hygiene, body fitness and sound health must be your priority.

18. You don’t deserve love, joy and forgiveness: This is sadly one cause of depression, self hurt and suicide. Regardless of how bad or hard you think it is, it can get better. You can be loved, forgiven and have your joy back when you place your life in the hands of God.

19. You don’t need God: This is the worst lie to accept. It is just like believing that a fish don’t need water to live. How else can you survive and succeed without the mercy and grace of God? How else will you experience miracles and favour that beat scientific and economic theories? There’s truly no life without God.

You can’t afford to live another year in falsehood. Rise above these lies, discover the truth, live by it and succeed.
Cheers to your success!!!

Lessons from the journey


The journey of life is full of many experiences and lessons; however, only a few people are able to learn from those experiences and apply the lessons learnt to their advantage.

In the proverbial words of King Solomon of ancient Israel, a wise man will hear and increase in learning. This implies that paying attention to and learning from life’s lessons is one sure way to get wisdom and improve your life.

So, beyond merely being alive this year, what lessons have you learnt from life so far? They may be lessons on faith, trust, love, patience, investment, humility, relationships, business, and so on.

More importantly, having learnt these lessons and got the wisdom in them, you must choose to apply yourself to these lessons by making necessary adjustments and alignments in order to improve your life next year and in the years ahead because it is your responsibility to learn and improve your life!

Bury your excuses!!!


“Excuses are good reasons for bad results”. This profound statement by Fela Durotoye, one of my mentors, changed my life.


In life, there are 2 kinds of people: those who are full of excuses and those who are known for getting results. The first is made up of individuals who have seemingly nice reasons why they can’t succeed, achieve, and become all they were created to be; while the second set consists of individuals who parade amazing results because they have refused to accept any excuses that will keep them from birthing their greatness.


If you must get the incredible, you must do the impossible! The world is ruled by amazing people who have become blind and deaf to their excuses and have risen to phenomenal heights.


Excuses will always abound, but you can choose to bury your excuses, diligently rise above the average, dare the lion, face your giants and achieve your greatness.


No more limits…


No more excuses…


Rise and soar!

Change your narrative




As a life coach, one of the most exciting and fascinating experience for me is taking individuals on a journey of transformation, moving them from where they currently are to where they desire to be.


Through this experience of engaging with people, I discovered that one thing that has hampers on the success of many people is their narrative about themselves.


Many people have a false narrative of themselves and they believe it and have lived with this falsehood for a long time…


Some people had their wrong narrative created from unpleasant experiences they had at various stages of their lives and the result has been limiting because they believed the false narrative.


When a bird created and designed to fly believes it can’t fly, that bird will automatically lack the courage to spread it wings, flap them and fly.


If you truly desire good success and greater accomplishments, then you’ve got to change your narrative.


Find the truth, believe it and make it your narrative.


Change your narrative now!



Very recently, I read a news from one of my favorite news websites about a man who has achieved a great feat and it’s worth sharing.


Mohammed Abubakar joined the aviation industry in Nigeria some 24 years ago as an aircraft cleaner but that wasn’t his final destination because he had a dream…


He obviously couldn’t afford his luxurious dream at the time, but he chose to be relentless in his pursuit towards his dream.


He obviously would have had the roughest of times working as a cleaner but he chose not to throw away his tomorrow over the frustrations of yesterday.


He kept his dream alive


He kept his passion burning


He kept his hands diligent and kept taking those little steps of faith towards his greatness.


And after 24 years, he rose from obscurity to significance as he watched his dream come true, from an aircraft cleaner to a qualified pilot!


Today he is wears a captain’s badge and carries out flight operations for one of the famous airlines in Nigeria.


As you read his story and admire his accomplishments, you must realize that “pursuit is the proof of desire”, so never let the pains of the past or present stifle the hope of the future.


Dreams come true!


You must be and remain R E L E N T L E S S in your pursuit until you watch your dream become reality.
