Arsene Wenger said, ‘When you look at people who are successful, you will find that they aren’t the people who are motivated, but have consistency in their motivation.’ Consistency is power, and it is what inspires success. Without consistency, every dream will die at birth stage. Those who climbed Mount Everest, didn’t do it without pains – they succeeded because despite the agony, consistency made them reach the summit. The industry bests didn’t attain their goals without the power of consistency. The great champions emerged and ruled in their chosen fields because they were consistent. You can’t achieve anything, you can’t become anything, you can’t reach any enviable height without consistency. I am not excited by your dream – I am excited by your consistency. I don’t respect your flamboyance – I respect your consistency. I am not impressed by your persuasive speech – I am impressed by your consistency.…

What makes people succeed in their endeavours are the little bits of positive things they consistently do, and what makes many fail is either not doing the things they should do, or doing what they shouldn’t do. I failed many times, not because I did what I shouldn’t do, but because I didn’t do what I should do. Until I began to be a doer, I didn’t succeed in my pursuits. To help you succeed, I will tell you ‘The 20 Lessons that Helped Me Stand Out in Life.’ Lesson one – You must have a plan: you can’t reach anywhere without a plan. You can become anything tangible without a plan. You can do anything worthwhile without a plan. Your excellence or underachievement is a reflection of whether you planned it or not. When it is well planned, it has the potential to be well executed. Excellence is when…

When you see me dance, it doesn’t always mean that the music is rhythmic. I just want to prove that life isn’t all about melody but harmony. When I laugh, it doesn’t mean I’m always happy. I just have the audacity to say to sadness, you can’t control me. Maturity begins with taking responsibilities for your own actions, status and position. If you always think someone is responsible for your failures, without looking inward, you have no place on the arena of progress. The blame game may offer you emotional satisfaction, but it changes nothing – the only thing that’ll reposition you is defying the odds, without allowing the distractions of others affect your golden pursuit. If you don’t get bitter, but decide instead, to get better, you’ll be greater. Except you build your life, and I mean, your very life, you’ll remain a punching bag to those with upper…

Some people are dead souls because they aren’t responding to the breath in them. You got to do, to be. If you bank only on intent or dream, without getting up to chase it, you’ll live a hundred years with empty hands. The only thing that does it is work, work, work. Stop talking, start working. Work on your idea. Work on your dream. Work on your expectations. You can’t reach your desired height mere staring at the sky. You must pull your weight. You must use your physical, mental and spiritual energy. You don’t win by mere vituperations. You win by congregating or fraternising all your skills, strengths and resources – all directed towards that goal. You can make something out of nothing. You can beat your background and succeed where the red lines of impossibilities were drawn against you. You can mock failure and say to him, I…

If you tread a road without leaving a footprint, only those who saw you might remember that you were there, if they choose to – and when they die, the memory dies. But if you walk that road and impress an impact, even if people forget you, history will never. Die to make a difference! You weren’t born to make up the numbers. You’re not here, simply because there’s a vacuum to fill up. You’re here because you can continue from where creativity stopped, and make your impact. Your impact may not be a loud bang. It may not be so conspicuous, glittering like the most beautiful ornaments. It may not diffuse with the sweetest smells of roses in the very early hours of the morning. But you’ve got to understand that a difference isn’t about size or intensity  – it’s about the commitment from the heart to change one…

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 strategize for 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.…

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…
