One of the most amazing and fascinating games that heats up the sports world is football.

Now, I’m not a crazy fan as some are but I love the game.

Every follower of this game understands that there are two halves, with 45 minutes allotted to each, bringing the total play time to 90 minutes.

We can look at the 12 months of every year as the 90 minutes of the game and we can easily split the year into two halves, each having 6 months.

In football, the second half is preceded by a short break after the first half and is most times seen as the time for the real game, as this half determines a lot about the entire game.

Every good coach will re-plan and re-strategize with his players after a careful study of the first half and where necessary during the second half, they change their formation and make substitutions that can result in an ultimate game change in their favour, enabling them to score their winning goals and emerge as champions.

In this second half of this year, you too can take advantage of this secret, look at what has worked and not worked during the first half, re-strategize, change your formation and make necessary substitutions, refuel, recharge and  re-launch yourself to achieve your goals in this second half of this year and change the game of this year in your favour.

What kind of seed are you sowing?


One of the laws the perpetually govern the earth is the law of seed time and harvest (or sowing and reaping as many call it).

This law was perpetuated by the Creator- God Almighty and as long as the earth remains, “seed time and harvest will never cease”.

Like we all know, “whatever a man sows, that’s what he reaps” that’s why you can’t plant beans and harvest maize and you can’t plant orange seed and reap cocoyam because to a very large extent, the seed always determines the harvest.

In life, our thoughts, words and actions are seeds and their consequences are the harvest.

Anyone who expects a quality harvest must be diligent enough to sow a quality seed, so I ask you:

What kind of seed are you sowing?

If you want a harvest of success, you must plant the seed of diligence, excellence and enthusiasm.

We must therefore be critical about our seed today because it will certainly bring about our harvest tomorrow.


The Power of Creative Collaboration


Everyone on the pathway to success must know this profound truth:

“One is too small a number to achieve greatness”

This is why a tree can never make a forest and nothing can ever be fruitful by itself.

Humans are created with the ability to relate, network and collaborate with each other because no man is complete by himself.

As long as the earth remains, we would always need each other:

White needs black, sun needs moon, day needs night, man needs woman and so on because Together Everyone Achieves More.

If our systems (personal, organizational, governmental and societal) must be efficient enough, we must have capacity for creative collaboration and effective networking, for in it we will find strength in our purpose and foster our creative possibilities, in order to withstand any opposing force that tends to undermine our collective goal of existence, creativity and fulfillment.

Let’s live together!

Let’s build together!!

Let’s win together!!!

How to achieve Personal Transformation

metamorphosisOne of the secrets of personal success is the principle of personal transformation and growth.

Personal transformation produces maturity and induces success at various stages.

The word “transform” means to change form or move from one form to another and this is what growth is about.

The butterfly transforms itself from the egg form to larva form, to pupa form and then it moves to become the butterfly.

In order to get yourself from where you are to where you need to be, you need to transform.

Two keys to personal transformation are:

  1. Acquisition of knowledge.
  2. Application of knowledge.

Acquisition of knowledge produces capacity and Application of knowledge produces experience, both of which enables metamorphosis towards good success.




It was Children’s day in Nigeria two days ago and truth be told, we are all “CHILDREN OF DESTINY” because we were all born as children, we have unique and great destinies and we carry in us destiny potentials.

As I took a walk around town, I could observe children of all shades- those who participated in various schools and churches activities to mark their day, those who visited recreational parks, eateries and malls and off course those who were on the streets hawking stuff for survival, I also remembered those suffering from abuse of all sorts.

I was moved to tears  when I sighted two little boys hawking “pure-water” on their heads at a very popular junction on my way to attend a training in the city of Port Harcourt and I said to myself:

If only they can know that regardless of their present situation, they carry a destiny seed in them that can be cultivated to germinate and raise them to greatness, then they will not let their background keep their backs on the ground but will see obstacles as hurdles and determine to be great.

In the words of my mentor Fela Durotoye, “As we build and prepare the future for our children, we must also build prepare our children for the future”

We must therefore become role models worthy of emulation, to inspire hope and fuel courage in them to birth their success and the success of a brighter future.

Raise a child, Don’t abuse!

Help a child, Don’t despise!!

Love a child, Don’t hate!!!

Happy celebration to all CHILDREN OF DESTINY.

Two Secrets of Efficient Growth

60So for the three consecutive days, I took a conscious walk around my friend’s fish farm in the course of the previous week and I’ll share my observations with you, so you can learn a thing or two from them.

Taking a close look in and around, one particular pond caught my attention, and this was the pond that carried the latest set of fingerlings that had just arrived the farm a few days before I came around.

I keenly observed that the fingerlings grew and improved each passing day and they obviously fared well.

I quickly realized two major factors that determined their daily growth and they are:

  1. Their environment
  2. Their feed

The fingerlings were placed in a pond of conducive water (their strength zone), that enables growth and they were fed with balanced, nutritious and regular diet.

Truth be told: Whenever and wherever there’s efficient growth, these factors must be present.

Being in the right place but having the wrong diet will impede efficient growth and vise versa.

If you must experience effective and efficient growth, you must be critically about your environment and your diet, because where you are and what you feed on will either build or destroy you and your dream.



Garden or Bush?


As I travelled from Uyo, Akwa-Ibom State to Port Harcourt, Rivers State on Saturday, I began to admire the green vegetation on both sides of a section, on the east-west road and I realized how blessed we are with arable and fertile land.

As I continued to admire, my imagination quickly opened up to the great potential of the vast expanse of land that has been overgrown with weeds and I thought: if the potential of the land is realized and duly maximized, productivity and fruitfulness will be the result.

As we drove past and I kept gazing, I also realized that difference between a bush and a garden is Order.

While a garden is neatly cultivated and arranged, a bush is without order and since there’s the lack of cultivation, anything grows on it.

As you choose to maximize your life, you must be intentional about cultivating the field of your mind and ensure that your mind is a garden, characterized by order and beauty.

Your life will exude it’s beauty only when your mind is a garden and not a bush.
