Beyond the seed

Screenshot_20200708-083824~2

One characteristic of every good farmer is the ability to see differently. While others see just a tiny seed, the farmer sees beyond the seed and sees the massive harvest that the seed can produce.

But between seed time and harvest is the process of cultivation, where the farmer nurtures the seed to fruition.

Every good farmer is always intentional about the process of cultivation because it determines a lot about the harvest.

And so you too must learn to see beyond the seed that you carry and diligently cultivate your seed everyday until you birth forth something new and great for our world.

It’s up to you. Be intentional!

The extraordinary you!

The world knows how to make room for people with exceptional results.

These are people who have deliberately taken a detour from the commonness of life and have chosen to go the extra mile, be exceptionally diligent and achieve uncommon results.

So from academics to sports, to arts, entertainment, science, technology and in every sphere of endeavor, extraordinary people are always celebrated because they have chosen to take the necessary steps, pay the price and follow the principles that have led them to achieving uncommon results.

Truth be told, common is too cheap and untrustworthy, average has not changed from being an enemy and as such you must not settle for average or common, else your relevance will easily be eroded.

Now is the time to think differently and become exceptional in order to remain relevant.

Throw it away!!!

Samson was one of the strongest men who ever walked the surface of the earth as chronicled in the Scripture.

In one of the battles he fought thousands of years ago, he had no weapon with him, but found a jaw bone of an ass. He took hold the bone and slew a thousand soldiers with it. Wow!

Interestingly, just after that great slaughter and victory, Samson threw the jaw bone away and moved ahead… yes he did!

I’m sure Samson understood something unique, that strategies for past victories may not be relevant for future conquests, so he refused to hold onto the jaw bone as many of us would do today.

Sometimes we hold dearly on to things and methods that produced results for us in the past and fail to realize that if we must have and produce new results, we need to engage in new methods, patterns and strategies.

What things have you been holding onto that can’t guarantee new results? 

It’s time to throw them away and move ahead to the new!!

Plug into wealth

As I taught in an online class very recently, this question popped up- can everybody be rich and wealthy? And I gave my answer in these simple terms:

1. God designed everyone with the ability to be rich and wealthy. Sadly many people never realize and tap into this ability.

2. Life happens to us according to our belief. So becoming wealthy is first a matter of belief and it begins in your mind.

3. Wealth is first intangible and you are responsible for making the decisions and taking the actions that will move your wealth into the tangible realm

4. You therefore must train your eyes to see, your mind to recognize and your hands to maximize opportunities as they come

5. Real wealth resides in the resources within and around you and also in your ability to use the uncommon value you carry to serve your world in an uncommon manner.

6. Yes, you can plug into the heavy deposit of wealth within and around you and release it, if you don’t join the band wagon of those that see problems everywhere and agonize, but become a part of those who see opportunities everywhere and organize all it takes to make the most of every opportunity.

Wealth is in your design, but It’s up to you to choose where you belong and what you really want!

ReSet

So recently I had this conversation with a young chap and I asked him what the future of his industry will look like in the post covid 19 era and to my greatest surprise, he responded by saying “he hadn’t given it a thought”…. wow!

It quickly dawned on me that sadly, some folks are still casual about what’s happening globally without realizing that their cheese has been moved.

Truth be told, the current happenings has given us all the opportunity to think deep, review, reshape and reset our lives, our plans and our endeavours.

The world is transiting and this requires several levels of reset in order for you to fit in and remain relevant to your environment, your industry and the world.

That little reset and adjustment can become the bait for your biggest breakthrough.

Act now!

 

Staying committed

One indispensable requirement for success in life is commitment.

Every star all around the world walked into their stardom because they stayed committed, even so, your pursuit to success will also place much demand on your commitment.

Commitment demands that you don’t just do what you like to do, but what is right to do. Commitment demands that you stay focused, unwavering and courageous in the face of uncertainties and distractions.

You therefore must stay committed to your dreams, goals and vision, you must stay committed to your family, valuable connections and partnerships, you must stay committed to staying safe and making our world a better place, you must stay committed to learning and growing, you must stay committed to service to God and humanity, you must stay committed to adding value to yourself and creating valuable solutions that the world will pay you for.

Time is ticking, the world is changing, your dreams and goals are right before you. If you don’t stay committed, then you can’t make it.

It’s up to you. Stay committed!

Going forward

We live in a dynamic world with many dynamic features that makes ample room for only those who are flexible and fast to adapt to the ever changing world, while those who are slow to change are left behind and become obsolete.

From time to time in our world, radical changes occur, old things pass away and bring about the emergence of a new normal.

Going forward, it is your responsibility to ensure that you take advantage of the new normal for your own advancement.

Learn about the changes and the new normal they bring along.

Position and reposition your mind and yourself for relevance as you go forward.

Plan and prepare strategically for opportunities of the new world.

Have faith in God and never lose sight of your vision, goals and dreams as you go forward.

Ensure that you go forward with balance in your spirit, soul and body (no part left behind).

Stay fearless, go forward!

Creativity has evolved

Screenshot_20200209-225913~2

Growing up as a little boy, I saw most people give expression to their creative prowess in several ways.

Most of us had so much fun rolling tyres around, building sandy and muddy houses, among others, just to give expression to our innate creative abilities. Most times, our ‘inventions’ got the attention of the neighborhood.

While it’s okay to reminisce on all that, it’s important to understand that creativity has evolved, as nobody will today applaud anyone for building sandy or muddy houses. Neither will you be famous for making paper boats or rolling tyres around.

The world is waiting to celebrate cutting-edge inventions and disruptive ideas that will transform entire systems, cities and economies.

The same mind that imagined a paper boat years ago and made it, has the ability to conceive the next big and disruptive idea. The only trouble is that most people threw away their creativity and let the pressures of life and career choke their God-given ability to dream, create and succeed.

There’s gold inside of you and you must let it out!

It’s your responsibility to engage your mind deeply to create timeless, disruptive and cutting-edge solutions that will transform our world.

Yes you can!

Don’t overload!!!

In the part of the world where I live, it is not strange to find overloaded vehicles along the road, often with goods and people. For one who is safety conscious, this is not a pleasurable sight to behold.

Each time a vehicle is overloaded, the original capacity of that vehicle is put under pressure, reducing it’s speed power and sometimes causing it to break down. Overloading is not a characteristic of success!

So, as you move towards your success this year and beyond, don’t bite more than you can chew. Don’t attempt to lift what’s beyond your carrying capacity. Don’t try to achieve all your goals at a time; rather set your goals smartly and take them one at a time.

This way, you can build more capacity, maintain your altitude and speed power. Most importantly, you won’t break down.

Success leap

Here’s another season when we record 366 days in the year, instead of the conventional 365 days. This comes to us once in four years.

2020 is a leap year and this year, those born on the 29th of February can mark and celebrate their unique birthday.

Amid the myths and beliefs about the leap year, you must not fail to identify and maximize the opportunities that come with it.

The additional day in this year gives us an additional opportunity to succeed.

Yes, you can have a quantum success leap over every limits, set backs and barriers into the place of your greatness.

So, you must be intentional, diligent and focused on having quantum success leaps this year and beyond.

Cheers to your success!
