At the beginning of this year, I published an article on positioning yourself for a successful year, and as the year is fast moving forward, I felt it sensible to remind you about the points mentioned in that lovely article. To make something out of the rest of this year, and to make sure that by the end of the year, you won’t be biting your nails, and be counting your pains instead of your gains, follow me, as I briefly talk about the following points. 1. Review the Past 6 Months: You can’t tell where you’re heading to, if you don’t know where you’re coming from. You must be able to assess your journey so far, so that you can strategizefor the one ahead. Unequivocally speaking, review the past six months and account for it – accounting makes you take responsibility for the successes and failures, or for your indifference. Indifference,…

Success does not just happen – it comes because someone learnt and followed some principles that make life successful. Without taking much of your time, let me share with you some quotes and their interpretations that will help you live a happy and successful life. 1.  Where you write your vision determines its durability. If you go to the seashore to write your vision on sand, be sure that in a little while, it will be wiped off. If man does not trample that vision, the water will wash it away. Don’t expect a vision written on sand to stand the test of time. Where you write your vision determines its durability. Some people write their visions on pieces of papers, so, they end up in pieces. Some people write their visions, only in their memories, so when their memories fail, their visions also fail. Some people write their visions…

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…

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…

The benefits of Self-awareness If you are a star but only focus on your dark side of life, you will blend with the night, and be lost in the night. The only stars that give light in the night are those that know that they have the power to shine. The power you are unaware of cannot make you anything, or bring you anything. I have met a lot of people with unbelievable level of intelligence, but one thing that most of them lacked is knowing who they are. Let me quickly point out that intelligence is nothing if there isn’t self-awareness. Self-awareness isn’t arrogance; it is the ability to know your originality so that you won’t feel inferior when you encounter other people’s personalities. No matter how high anyone you meet might be, being conversant with your identity will give you an element of positive ego, so that you…

How to stop procrastinating A new year has begun, so to say, and a lot of people, if not all, have started setting goals on their expectations for the year. In the yore, so many people have done similar things without doing anything to make it happen. Why did they not make it happen? One major reason is PROCRASTINATION. They always said they would do it, but never did it because they always delayed doing it, until they became too weak, too busy, too lazy, and too disinterested to do it – this is most people’s problems because they don’t know how to overcome procrastination and laziness. They want to do something but don’t ever get to do it. They know how to achieve certain milestones but never take a single step into what they know how to do. They can plan but never execute. They can dream but never…

Change starts with you If you’ve been waiting to get that job, project, assignment, or objective achieved – and what you’ve been reliant upon is the day you will get inspired, I am sorry to disappoint you, it may never be done, because inspiration never comes from the point of zero. What do I mean by the point of zero? The point of zero is the level at which nothing has been done or started. At this point, it is only deliberate efforts that will move you from your horizontal position up your linear curve. Inspiration only builds up when your physical energy and your mental willingness agree to a momentum. Nothing will get you out of bed to type the first page except you make efforts to get up. Nothing will help you get on the desk, switch on the computer and start searching for information except you make…

Waiting for the dream come true No one likes to wait, but somehow, on many occasions, we have to wait for so many things. Waiting makes the way for maturity before delivery. A pregnant woman, whether she likes it or not will have to wait for nine months before birthing her baby. If she does otherwise, the baby will be premature. Besides being premature, other forms of complications may set in, which may result in circumstances not bargained for. So, the importance of patience in life cannot be overemphasized. To drive a vehicle, you first ignite it, and put it into gear one, and then, accelerate. As the speed increases, you move from gear one to two, and so on. At a certain stage in your drive, your speed remains on a specific level, and on that level, you are no longer accelerating but moving at a uniform velocity. For…

Setting new goals When people do nothing, they get bored. When they do something, but same thing all the time, life becomes monotonous and therefore, they get even more bored. For this reason, a man must continue to set new goals because without new goals, it becomes so uninteresting to live. New goals must pose new challenges so that there will be something to push you beyond your usual best. As each day breaks, your record best is being broken daily by people you consider insignificant. If you don’t get up and work harder, you will be the one that will sooner or later be regarded as insignificant. What you were yesterday is nothing compared to what most people are today. If you rely on your past to put you on top tomorrow, you will be surprise how far away you will be from the peak you once occupied yesterday.…
