RELENTLESS PURSUIT

Screenshot_2018-09-09-22-04-52

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.

Strategic collaboration

FB_IMG_1529520367939

One of the many lessons I have learnt about life is that all creations were designed to function through partnership because nothing can be fruitful by itself.

A tree doesn’t make a forest, so whenever you get isolated, you miss your chances of fruitfulness.

Strategic partnership exists and functions for a common purpose, with a common vision and by a common strategy and they are guided by these principles:

READINESS: There must first be the mutual readiness of the partners and each of them must be prepared and equipped for the alliance.

PURPOSE: The partners must have a common vision, interest and intersection of purpose that orchestrates the partnership.

UNDERSTANDING: There must be an acceptable depth of understanding that builds the foundation of agreement for partnership because two can’t work together unless they agree. Effective communication enhances understanding.

TRUST: Each partner must build mutual trust and have a reservoir of character, integrity and capability.

FOCUS: There must be a focus on the common interest, the vision and the goal of the partnership.

SYNERGY: Each partner must value their connection and synergize, so as to create a win-win partnership.

INVESTMENT: Partners must be willing to invest in each other and in their partnership.

EXPERTISE: Each partner must bring on board his strength, gift, knowledge, specialty and talent to grow their strategy and partnership.

Successful people everywhere understand that one is too small a number to achieve greatness, so they seek better collaboration instead of bitter competition.

It is therefore your responsibility to find your strategic partners and succeed together!

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!
