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?

The Power of Synergy

Synergy Volleyball Definition.jpgSo I travelled to Uyo in Akwa-Ibom state to support some of my role models as they hosted the last edition of the F.R.E.E Conference- a career and entrepreneurship empowerment gathering, for 2017.

 
On arrival after a very smooth ride from Port Harcourt, I met with them, greeted and chatted with fellow team members and off I headed to meet my big brother and friend, my host in the beautiful city of Uyo.

 
As I walked into the room where he was, I met him with about 6 guys with various multi media gadgets and there they were working and brainstorming on their forthcoming project- The Street gospel concert.

 
As I settled down and watched these guys do their thing, I realized that:
1. One is too small to achieve greatness
2. Two (good heads) are better than one
3. Teamwork truly makes the dream work
4. Every great thing in life is birthed through partnerships, teamwork, synergy and collaboration.

 
Now as you read through this note, what lessons can you learn?

 
It’s time to quit trying to be a tree that wants to become a forest all by itself.

 
It’s time to seek and maximize the power of synergy and grow your dream to the zenith!

If You want to THRIVE, this is for you!

thrive-1A few weeks ago, I visited a fish farm owned by a dear friend and I spent a lot of time observing various processes.

Then it was time to harvest the fish. As they were caught with the fishing basket and placed on the ground, I could observe  a continuous struggle among them.

They struggled for life, they struggled to move and they struggled to be.

Then it dawned on me that the simple reason for their struggle was because they were out of their STRENGTH ZONE- the water.

When a fish is out of water, it will struggle to be, when a plant is out of the soil, it will struggle to survive and so it is when ever you are out of your STRENGTH ZONE, there will be continuous and obvious struggle for survival.

If you must thrive, blossom and flourish in this season, you must find your STRENGTH ZONE and grow in it.

It’s okay to leave your comfort zone, but never leave your STRENGTH ZONE because that’s where your weakness becomes insignificant.

Discover yourself, Occupy your Position and live your purpose.

about to CRASH?

Very recently, I attended an international conference and was hosted together with my big brother by this lovely couple at their home which is relatively close to the international conference center.

On the day we were set to depart, I observed an engineer with certain tools around their generator trying to figure out why the plant produced a funny sound before turning off by itself.

Soonest, it was discovered that the engine of the plant was just about to knock, because the wrong fuel was used to run it… pheeew!

FALSEHOOD was introduced to the system and it was set to crash, (that’s exactly what happens whenever falsehood is introduced to a system).

So what is the TRUTH?

It’s the disposition of the Creator on any matter over the creation and the disposition of the Manufacturer on any matter over the product.

Anything other than the Creator’s disposition concerning the creature, no matter how factual or logical it seems is falsehood.

If the Manufacturer has designed the engine to function with a particular fuel, that’s the truth of that system, introduction of any alternative is falsehood and it with in a matter of time crash the system.

Many systems will obviously crash simply because falsehood is being introduced, just like the wrong fuel used to run the plant. If any system must work efficiently, it must be according to the TRUTH (manufacturer’s specification) of that system.

If you must thrive in this season, you must ensure you discover and establish the truth of your existence and walk in it because falsehood crumples capacity.

If falsehood has been introduced in any system, here’s the way out: quickly find where actions and intentions run contrary to purpose, purify the intentions and correct the actions and you are set to blossom.

Its time to walk in the TRUTH of your existence!

MAXIMIZE YOUR LANE

images-lane

Life is a race and we are athletes in this race.

Like I’ve always said, every athlete has an assigned lane and what happens on your lane between the start and the finish will determine your success in the race or not.

Your lane is the most important place to be in the race, because if you run ahead of other athletes and you break your ranks to step into another lane, you have failed!

So finding your lane is crucial as well as maximizing it.

In order to maximize your lane in the 2017 race, you need to

  1. Understand WHY you are running the race in the first place.
  2. FOCUS on your strength and build momentum as you run
  3. Find the right TEAM to run with.
  4. Get a COACH to instruct you rightly and hold you accountable
  5. Find your target NICHE and commit to serving them with value
  6. Commit to LEARNING and GROWING as you run on your lane this year.
  7. Determine to FINISH strong because that’s the aim of every visionary athlete.

Giant or Grasshopper?

Giant or Grasshopper:

There are two categories of people in this world, the Giants and the Grasshoppers.

The distinguishing factor between them is their MINDSET.

Giants know who they are and believe in themselves, they’re bold, strong, courageous and daring, they like to win.

Grasshoppers lack self awareness and confidence, they hop so low because they see low, think low, speak low and act low, they’re timid, fearful, weak and scrawny, they never think they can win.

Whenever you think you can win and take right steps towards your victory then you’re a GIANT, but if you never think you can win in life and take no step towards your victory then you’re a grasshopper because as a man THINKS in his heart, so is he.
