Fragrance of success


There’s a very popular story in the Holy Bible about a certain lady who had an alabaster box that contained a very expensive ointment.

One day, she met Jesus Christ and took one of the most important decisions of her life: to break her alabaster box and pour her treasured ointment on Jesus Christ. This action changed the course of her life forever!

Just like this lady, many of us have our treasures, dreams, ideas and potentials still boxed up. Besides, the fragrance of our talents, gifts and strengths remain unexplored.

Instead of just admiring your alabaster box and the treasures in it, you can choose to break it. Let out your treasures and the fragrance of your dreams for the good of humanity.

Never take your life for granted!!!


Life is a precious gift which should never be taken for granted simply because you can effortlessly breathe, sleep, wake, eat and move.

People who do not trivialize life easily recognise opportunities. Since, success is not an accidental gift, only intentional individuals get it!

Most people have missed opportunities, delayed their accomplishments and have buried their dreams because they took life for granted.

If you truly want to be successful and achieve your greatness then you can’t afford to take your life for granted for a second. You must be intentional about living.

Yes! You’ll find it


A few years ago, the federal government of Nigeria commissioned a team to search for crude oil in the northern part of the country.

While many considered it a futile search, maybe because the northern region is full of mountains and deserts, the team went ahead to execute its mandate. But after about two years of search, they found no oil.

Refusing to give up the search, they continued and very recently, they greeted the nation with the good news of their search: they found crude oil in the Lake Chad Basin!

You need to be like the search team which refused to give up until they found the object of their search. You must remain resilient, focused and determined with your goals, ideas and dreams. If you can do so, you will surely find success and more success.

Harvest your success


As children, we always looked forward to the last 3-4 months of the year because those were the months during which we celebrated our church’s harvest.

The harvest celebration was very unique, as people came to thank God for a bumper harvest or a successful farming season. They did this by showcasing their various yields.

I’d like to see life as a farm and we as farmers. Our ideas, businesses, and careers are the seeds. In the end, we all look forward to the harvest season. It is important for you to bear the following in mind.

1. Every farmer knows that the harvest season is preceded by the planting season. What have you been planting?

2. Every farmer understands the place of diligence in cultivating his farmland. How have you been cultivating your “farmland”?

3. Every farmer knows that the quality of the harvest is largely determined by the quality of the seed and the cultivation. What is the quality of your work so far?

4. Every farmer understands that after the harvest comes the season to plant again. Have you reserved some seeds to sow again?

These questions should guide you through every season of your life, whether planting or harvesting.

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!






Make your success sprout


Few months into this year, I planted four coconut seedlings and began to cultivate them, ensuring that they got the care needed for them to do well.

Surprisingly, at the time I expected them to sprout, I observed that only two, out of the four, were sprouting and it seemed as if the remaining two were not going to sprout. I felt as though my efforts were wasted.

I was consoled by the fact that at least two were doing well and rising each day. For the remaining two, I chose to apply the faith principle, believing that they would do well.

Yesterday, I took a look at them and I noticed something sprouting gradually from those two that refused to sprout initially. My heart was filled with overwhelming joy. Then the following dawned on me:

  1. We must never lose sight of our visions, dreams and goals.
  2. Faith is an indispensable factor for success.
  3. Sometimes, our successes truly differ and have their set times.
  4. Success (growth) happens internally before the results are seen externally.
  5. Every due diligence is never a wasted effort.
  6. Even when we’re disappointed, we should never be discouraged.

Cheers to your success!

So you want to win?


One thing every winner can attest to is that winning is never easy. If it were, then everyone would become a winner.

Nobody ever won without failing at some point. All winners have a scar or more to show as evidence of the processes of their emergence as winners. But despite those scars of failures, quiting was not an option for them. They kept believing and they kept trying even after failing severally. They refused to accept failure as their destination. They remained diligent and consistent.

They kept learning and they kept growing until they grew up into success and emerged as winners.

So, you too can be a winner and be celebrated if you choose never to give up. Get thoroughly processed, prepare diligently and grow consistently as you run your race.

Cheers to your success!
