Find your Place, Mind your Lane, Run your Race

Very recently, I read a post from a dear friend of mine which she titled “off the bandwagon” where in she told her story about self realization, of how she has quit various aspects of business she had been involved in, as soon as she realized her rightful place- her strength zone.

As I continued reading, I remembered how one of my role models shared with me how he shut down his consulting firm which has become a household name in the consulting industry in Nigeria just because he realized that business consulting wasn’t his thing.

They both jumped of the band wagon as soon as they realized they were out of their strength zone.

So now is that time to ask yourself: are you within or without your strength zone?

Your strength zone is that place you are wired and fired for, it’s the place you were created for a was created for you. It’s the place where your gifts find expression and you thrive in it seamlessly.

It’s okay to get out of your comfort zone, but never leave your gift zone!

Self realization will help you discover if your current position and location is within your strength zone and taking you closer to your dreams and goals and if not you need to get off the band wagon too.

If you truly desire success, you must Find your Place, Mind your Lane and Run your Race..

Take Responsibility for your life!!!

responsibility

It’s amazing how we carry so much potential in us but most times fail to realize this vital part of us and consequently don’t maximize our lives…

It’s amazing how we carry so much greatness in us but ignorance keeps us below excellence and makes us settle for average..

It’s amazing how we carry so much fire-power required to birth our dreams but we soon give in to tough times and give up on our life dreams and remain relegated in our weaknesses…

It’s amazing how we choose to hear all negativities that breeds fear and doubt more than we incline our hearts to  the positivity that builds and nurtures our faith in order to birth amazing possibilities..

But here’s the truth: it’s up to you to take responsibility for your life, cultivate commensurate faith that will rekindle your fire-power to its full strength, so you can reach for your greatness, release your potential and maximize your life.

You can live your best life, even now!

Change your world!

How-Empathy-Can-Change-Your-Life-and-Our-World-C

Recently I walked into an office in the beautiful city of Port Harcourt and something in that office caught my attention.

It was the unique electric socket I saw there. It was so unique because it had in it a USB port in addition to the regular 3-pin plugin, so that a phone’s USB cable can be sloted directly into the port without the plug head and I was so thrilled with this new innovation.

It made me realize how that people are thinking creatively for innovations and solutions to change their world.

Every invention or innovation was birthed out of the quest to think out the solution to a challenge or a need somewhere in the world and that was how the electric bulb, the aeroplane, the telephone and all others became a reality.

There’s no limitation anywhere except the one you placed in your mind. It’s time to lift up every bar of limitation, open your eyes to see solutions and possibilities, open your minds to think creatively for innovations and apply yourself diligently to change your world.

Now is the time to think and change your world!

Stay Relevant

As I recently watched my little cousin prepare for his entrance exam into secondary school, I was shocked when I saw with him the renowned Ugo C. Ugo’s nationwide common entrance examination preparation book- a phenomenal book I used during my time, over 20 years ago.

As I continued to wonder in amazement, it dawned on me that the content of the book has remained relevant over the years and this is one secret of significant brands globally-  Consistency and Relevance.

The death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ which we commemorate in the Easter celebration is another perfect example that showcases significant relevance for over 2000 years.

And as we live and apply ourselves daily, we must stay relevant and consistently deliver value towards the significant advancement of life and humanity.

Enjoy the blessings of the Easter celebration!

Power of collaboration (my experience)

Very recently, a senior friend called to fix a business meeting with me, so I confirmed my availability and as we met, she informed me that she wants us to work together on a particular project.

After all said and done, I was an associate consultant on the project and a part of the team that delivered a high level teamwork and communication training for one of the foremost multinational oil companies in Nigeria.

Collaboration made it possible!

Every great feat is achievable through collaboration, because one is too small a number to achieve greatness.

We must always realize that two or more good heads are better than one and on our journey to greatness; we must be relevant and valuable and seek relevant and valuable collaborations that significantly repositions us for greatness.

 

 

Just before you shoot!

The last 63 days of this year must have without doubt come with various experiences for various people, but regardless of what experiences you’ve had so far, you must never lose your heart of focus, determination, diligence and gratitude.

As we step into the next 302 days of 2018, I’ll share with you 7 must haves you need before you shoot:

  1. Gather momentum– You must be prepared for the game ahead of you. You need a vision that sets your heart ready for achievement and you must also be physically fit because your body is the vehicle of your purpose.
  2. Master your tools– Every successful hunter requires certain tools and they take their time to study and master their tools. You must also know the tools you need to hit the game before you and you must master these tools before use.
  3. Have a target– You must have clarity of what you want and what you don’t need in order to succeed in the remaining days of this year. Even the hunter in the jungle doesn’t shoot until there’s a target.
  4. Monitor and evaluate– The issue of planning for success can never be underestimated. Even when there is a target, you sometimes see the hunter taking his time to monitor and evaluate the target, maneuvering plans in order to take action and hit the game. You must plan purposefully.
  5. Aim properly– Whether you’re shooting a machine gun or an arrow or a catapult, you certainly need FOCUS! Focus has been and will always be a necessary ingredient for success and therefore you must ensure you aim properly at your target before you shoot.
  6. Timing is everything– One of the reasons for planning is to know the right time for execution. The hunter in the jungle goes through all the aforementioned processes and waits for the right time to shoot. Shooting at the wrong time may cause a narrow miss and as you know, “nearly cannot kill a bird”.
  7. Shoot– As short and simple as it sounds, the hunter doesn’t go into the jungle to play, but to shoot and hit the game. Now when all is said and done, you must come to the time when you must execute and apply yourself diligently in order to hit the game of the next 302 days and achieve good success!

Are you ready to shoot?
