Think differently

Many years ago, people journeyed from one place to another on horses, camels, and donkeys, but the advent of automobiles revolutionized the world of transportation.

 
Many years ago, people used the abacus system for calculations and learning, but the invention of computers revolutionized the world of learning.

 
All these were possible because individuals decided to think differently; hence, they found new ways of doing old things and a vast spectrum of discoveries and possibilities.

 
If you will choose to think differently and find new ways of doing old things, you too can birth innovations without limits.

 

Will you think differently?

Grow and be the best!

People who sacrifice innovation on the altar of tradition, cherish the past more than the future, and celebrate weakness more than strength, will definitely stop growing without realizing it, as you don’t necessarily have to move backwards for the world to leave you behind. All you need to do is to stop moving.

 

Moreover, as you choose to settle for the average instead of the best, and celebrate the ordinary instead of the extraordinary, you will surely clip your growth.

 

It is up to you.

 

Never get comfortable with your last achievement.

 

Choose to grow your mind.

 

Choose to innovate.

 

Choose to be the best!

About growth and success

Sam Obafemi, one of Nigeria’s leading business coaches, recently said that businesses are not meant to succeed but to grow. As I pondered on this standpoint, its truth dawned on me, and I realised that it is also applicable to life in general.

 

Humans are not designed to succeed but to grow. Hence, your success is in your growth. If this is true, it means that you need to be intentional about your growth, especially because while growing old is automatic, growing up isn’t. So don’t just go through the motions of your daily activities, but consciously commit yourself to daily growth.

 

It is your responsibility to consistently grow yourself physically, spiritually, intellectually and socially, until the seed of success within you germinates to fruition.

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!

RELENTLESS PURSUIT

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.

Unlocking the doors of success

In a recent chat with a friend about business success, I pointed out four key factors that will help any young entrepreneur succeed amongst others and I want to share those thoughts with you.

 

1. You must get used to rejection: For many reasons, people out there will hate your ideas, misunderstand, misinterpret and out rightly reject you and your amazing dream and ideas as you journey in the world of business, but you must get used to it. Rejection must provoke redirection and reprojection and never ejection.

 

2. You must be relentless: Recently a friend of mine wrote of how he was inspired by failure and has grown to become a force to be reckoned with in the world of entrepreneurship in his state. This was only possible because he was relentless! Many people fail and fall and quickly give up for one reason or the other, but my friend failed forward and his failure has propelled him to greater heights.

 
3. You must have faith: One universal secret of success is FAITH. Your belief about yourself and your dream plays a critical role in determining whether or not you will rise or fall. Without faith, success becomes largely impossible!

 

4. You must know your game well: Athletes win because they master their games and even in the game of business, Mastery thrives over mediocrity. It is therefore your responsibility to know your game, master it and play to win. And when you become a master, choose to grow your mastery in order to remain relevant.

 

I shared these thoughts spontaneously as I chatted with my friend about how my journey to the world of business has been.

 

There are certainly other factors that breed success but if you’re a young business minded person with big dreams, then I urge you to note these four factors listed above and apply yourself diligently.

 

See you at the top!

Creative Problem Solving

Very recently, as I surfed the web page of a popular online news forum, I came across a headline announcing the new invention of a country that would host the Olympics in 2020 and I was curious to find out…

As I read through the news, I was amazed to discover how they had just invented mobile mosques ahead of the Olympic games to help visiting muslim tourists find a comfortable place to pray (5 times) daily during the games period.

This country is a minority muslim country but they realized that a lot of muslim tourists will partake in the games, hence the need for prayer centers for them.

Pheew! Such brilliant discovery..

They discovered a need and took the initiative to birth creative solutions to meet the need.

There are several other needs around us every day!

You must train your mind to see these opportunities and your hands to craft out creative solutions to meet these needs and solve these problems…

By so doing, you create value and get rewarded with wealth all because you solved a problem.

What problems have you discovered and what are you doing to solve them creatively?
