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?

Use it or lose it!

On that day I knew for sure that something beautiful dropped in my mind, one of the brightest ideas ever had just dropped in my spirit and I was excited.

A few days down the line, I realized that I couldn’t remember a thing about this beautiful idea I had celebrated with gross inaction and this wasn’t the first time it was happening to me.

Thinking about this, it got me worried and after a time of meditation, I felt like God spoke to me and said in plain terms:

“If you don’t capture ideas when they come they’ll fly away and if you don’t Nurture ideas when they come, they’ll die”…

So I learnt from that day how to act on my ideas by capturing them and nurturing them to fruition.

I also learnt that inaction paralyzes initiative.

As you read my story, you can choose to celebrate your ideas with action and not inaction.

Capture them by writing them down with a pen and paper, Nurture them by breaking them into actionable steps that will birth the dream, because if you don’t use it, you will lose it!

Just do it!!!

One of the reasons many problems in our world today has remained unsolved is because many people do nothing with the dreams and ideas in their imagination, many people have died and were buried with their ideas unused and have made the graveyard the wealthiest place on Earth.

You must refuse to be passive with your dreams and ideas because inaction paralyzes initiative.

The world will not pay you for what you want to do but for what you have done.

Success is in the doing..

No more procrastination!!!

Take that bold step now

You want to write a book, you want to start a business, you want to invent something new…. Hey!

“Do it afraid…”

Take action now and move your dreams and ideas to actualization.

Just do it and succeed with your dreams!!!

 

 

 

 

We are Children of Destiny!

One of the greatest blessings of life is the blessing of childhood.

Children are so special

Children are beautiful

Children are God’s gift

Children deserve to have the best!

And any Nation that despises their children invariably despises their future.

As we prepare the future for our children, we must also prepare our children for the future.

Children carry great deposits of potential that reveal their unalloyed greatness and it is our responsibility to help their greatness within to find expression without.

Therefore, teach a child, don’t despise.

Raise a child, don’t abuse.

Love a child, don’t hate.

Bless a child, don’t curse..

We are all children of destiny!

 

This is in commemoration of the world Children’s day celebration..

Everyone was born with creative capabilities and the world will always celebrate those who learn to maximize theirs.

  5. Taking commensurate action to birth your ideas and ensure it’s productivity..

This way you begin to add value to humanity and the world will rise to celebrate your genius.

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..
