10 THINGS TO DO WHEN YOU’VE LOST YOUR MOTIVATION Recently, I went through a tumultuous condition – it was like everything wrong was working against me – I was deflated and utterly knackered. For a couple of days, I was in bed looking depressed and worn out, but I knew that my personality wouldn’t let me remain in that condition for long. I’m a man who, in spite of being down, never remain down – somehow, I always find a way to bounce back, and believe me, I do bounce back. As I sat on that bed lamenting on certain things that have happened, I realised that there may be hundreds of thousands of people around the globe subjected to various challenges, and who may not have the energy to recuperate, not because they don’t want to, but because they don’t have the knowledge to. As I took myself out of…

Many people are talented but taking it to the level where it gets to be noticed and appreciated is where a lot have issues. The worst problem is that those with real talents don’t even believe they have them, and due to that, they stay continuously backstage. Staying backstage when you’re supposed to be on stage is disserve to you and your world. To get you on stage, I will tell you 10 tips that will take your talent to the top level. Find it: Ask yourself, ‘What am I best at?’ There’s something you love to do most. There’s a passion you are endeared to. Dig that passion out of the mud where it’s hidden. Wash it. Polish it. Use it. Believe it: It’s pointless finding something and not believing in it. Whatever you believe, you succeed in. Without belief, without faith, nothing is achievable. You’ve got to believe…

What  does it mean to go above and beyond? Sometime in the past, I admired people who could do certain things, especially in exhibiting keenness, skills and talent. I always thought that people who showed excellence in what they did were extraordinary people or super humans. Because of that, in my heart, I would worship them and enthrone them like deities for being more than humans. But when I began to understand life better, I realised that ordinary people who make up their minds to focus on their little talents, skills or even ideas with the totality of their hearts are those who stand out. It doesn’t matter where you were born. It doesn’t matter what colour of skin you reflect. It doesn’t matter what accent you speak with. If you decide with all determination to push yourself out of the ghetto, out of obscurity, out of the bottom of…

No one will buy a theoretical product because it is only in the imaginary world. I can’t buy a dream; you can’t buy a dream. If the computer was a dream, it will not sell on the shop floor. If cars were dreams, they won’t be driven on any road. If ships were dreams, they won’t sail on the sea. There is a time to stop dreaming and start acting.  One beautiful HEART is far greater than a million beautiful BODIES. You must feed your dream until it has enough cash to feed itself. You must push your dream until it has enough momentum to push itself. You must drive your dream until it has enough fuel to drive itself. If you think mere dreaming will trigger success, you haven’t come to the consciousness, how much it costs to live your dream. Prove you have a tomorrow by defying all…

You can have success against all odds. Your excuse will take you nowhere. Your frustrations against the odds of life will take you nowhere. Let me tell you; life owes you nothing. Your biggest debtor is YOU. You are a debtor to your dream, and if you can’t pay back what you owe, you can’t live your dream. So, wake up from your sleep, stop dreaming and start working. Yes, great dreams do come true, but you must be willing and ready to fight the odds. The odds will give you no chance. The probability of winning may be less than zero. Average minds will condemn you for ever having a go at something they consider to be practically impossible to achieve. But what you should realize is that the story gets more interesting when the odds are against you. The odd was against one of the greatest men that ever…

How to stop living in fear Daring is not stupidity. It is not taking un-calculated risks. It is facing the bully face to face, and saying to him, ‘You can’t stop me.’ Many threatening situations have tried to stop me physically, mentally and spiritually. For years, I have feared many things, and for the fears, I have unjustly limited my ability to make a difference in my world. One big lesson I have learnt is that when fear can’t stop you physically, it goes into your dreams to cause you nightmares. The dangerous aspect of nightmares is that it plays with your mentality and emotions. Because anything that affects your mind affects your life, your health and physical well-being will begin to dwindle. Fear is the worst killer. Its armory is nightmare. Dare your fears. Dare your nightmares. I will repeat a story I told in one of my previous…

How to become somebody in life: ways to be successful in life The questions that people often ask themselves as they make decisions to leave their comfort zones and pursue their dearest dreams are enormous – who knows me, who would believe in me, who would choose nobody like me? There’s often this perception that except someone knows you, you can’t make headway, but that impression is a wrong conclusion. People always look up to something, thinking that seeing something makes them something – the only thing that makes you something is seeing your destination, and propelling yourself in the direction of your destined imagination. Christopher Columbus said, “By prevailing over all obstacles and distractions, one may unfailingly arrive at his chosen goal or destination.” There will be obstacles; there always is – there will be distractions; there wouldn’t stop being, but your push against inconvenience and genuine excuses will drive…

What to do when you fail Your start may be shaky or wavy – don’t conclude that just because of that, you are doomed to fail in the end. In league games, you win some and lose some, but those who emerge champions don’t always win everything. Calling yourself a failure for a momentary setback doesn’t make you any better. You aren’t a genius for simply calling yourself an idiot and never-do-well. Self-pity and self-condemnation does not contribute to self-determination. So, what to do when you fail at everything is if you fail, take a short break to ponder why. Assess what went wrong. Look for how to make it right, and move on. Sitting to moan or mourn takes you out of contest and where you don’t contest you don’t emerge. You aren’t the only one that has failed – those ahead also did, and those behind will do…

I was excited to commence the recording of some video clips for our YouTube channel. Before then, I took some weeks to research on some top motivation video blogs in the world, and after that, I did same for the equipment and software needed to make the channel a success. It also cost me some thousands of dollars to make the purchases of the various stuffs that were required, as I wanted to make sure that the take off would be worth it. I was not worried about the soft ingredients for the channel – my concern was making sure that the final output in terms of technicality does not fall short of the minimum standard. After the purchases, getting conversant with how to use the hardware and software was another challenge as I am not a techy guy, even if I try, one way or the other to squeeze…
