For some, 2016 was quick to go, and for others, it was too sluggish. Just like every other year, it was a massive success for some, and a few more people would complain that it brought nothing lucratively memorable for them. Whatever the year meant to you, there’s nothing you can do now, and you don’t have the ability of stopping it to wind up and close it’s own chapter. For a progress-minded person, what you can do now is look ahead, and what is currently ahead of you is 2017. 2016 represents history, but 2017 stands for opportunity. Many people moan of not being given opportunities, but here comes one before you – what you do with it is massive to how you end up, come December 2017. How you end does not depend on how much you have now, or will have, but how you manage the resource…

When I was younger, I wanted to be a recording artist, and so wrote numerous songs – I even did a demo in a musical studio. A refrain in one of my songs was, “life itself is a teacher. Your experiences will be your guide.” In my youthfulness, I wrote certain lyrics, not knowing the very depth of what I said, but today, I am beginning to understand better. In the past 12 weeks or so, I have learned twists and shifts, breaks and brakes, and parallels and inexplicable true life dramas. I have also learned to be more accommodating in terms of taking the heats and hits, without daring an eye for an eye. One massive strength I have added to my little pouch is to laugh when I should be crying. It has dawn on me that the laughter of a hurt man is crazy – you wouldn’t know…

As I looked through my electronic jotter to see what to write in order to update my blog, I saw where I wrote down a number of topics and points. I usually, on my way to work or any intended destination never keep my mind blank. I enjoy pondering on issues of interest as I commute, rather than leave my mind empty for silly bedbugs to infest. Sometimes, I am in want of something to write as inspiration doesn’t usually and always surface when you need it, and at some other times, you have so much to write that you wonder when you’ll be able to finish. At this particular time, there was so much to put down because all through the period of redesigning Success Inks website, no article update was done; instead, what should be published were written in bits and pieces of notes. I have looked at…

Every human sets goals consciously or unconsciously. If you decide to walk from Point A to Point B, Point B is obviously your set goal. If a woman decides on a Monday morning that come Saturday, she will do a major shopping, the major shopping becomes the set goal. Without stress, on that Saturday morning, she will go to the supermarket and do her shopping. At the end of the shopping, her goal is achieved. If goal setting comes naturally with one’s area of strength, it becomes easy to attain. Most women love to shop, and so, it goes with their nature. When something is natural, it is self determined. Self determination comes from within. In spite of the above said, I would like to point out that there are people who disobey nature, and therefore, do not conform. When nature prompts you to do something, and you disobey over…

I used to believe that everyone is important. Yes; that is true, but everyone isn’t important to everyone. What do I mean? The world is about seven billion people; seven billion people aren’t important to me or you. If you have to wait for everyone to endorse you, you’ll never make it to your promise land. And if you understand this point, you’ll carry on with your dream even if some within your corner, one way or the other don’t approve the road to your destination and to the destination itself. The reason I am emphasizing this point isn’t for you to be negative about people, but for you not to be offended and abandon your dream when you don’t get the expected response. When you begin your dream, positive responses hardly visit; they only start flooding in when you have a break. Rather than sit down to moan over…

Happy New Year Everyone! Hope you had fun, ate all the good foods, and drank all the best wines during the festive season. I had wanted to post this article on the first day of the year, but I knew you were too engrossed in the ceremony, and wouldn’t pay attention to the details even if you attempt to read it. Now that your nerves are calm, and like me, you’re starting to count the cost of the celebration, you will be more relaxed to reason on what is written. One thing I like about time is that it is a no nonsense factor. Time is a variable that isn’t in the control of anyone; if you turn your clock backwards, in an attempt to slow down it’s pace, you are wallowing in self-deception. The year has begun; it is flying faster than our thoughts, and until we quickly realize…

As the year comes to an end, goal setters are beginning to look back to assess what 2015 was like. The statistics will determine if it’s been successful, static, or retrogressive. The outcome of the assessment becomes the baseline for setting next year’s goals. In addition to baseline, it tells you what and what should be done. And as individuals, families, and companies have their Christmas and end of year parties, behind the fun, there’s rumination resonating in the heads of business-minded people and leaders. The written and unwritten data are staring them in the face, reminding them of the realities of what the year has been like. These realities will inform their decisions on the actions to take to make the coming year worth celebrating. To assess the achievements of 2015, asking yourself the following questions will bring you to a logical conclusion. 1. What were the goals?: It…

The end product of failure is dependent on how you react to it. If you deflate because you were defeated, you wouldn’t have enough air in your wheel to cycle out of where you were knocked down. Being knocked down isn’t the same as being knocked out because no one can knock you out, but the only person who can, is you. You knock yourself out by lying where you fell. You push yourself out of the contest by demeaning your abilities. You disqualify yourself by underestimating your potentials. Feeling inadequate isn’t an act of humility; it is a drive towards irresponsibility (in case you don’t know). I was an introverted person; feeling strong within, but never having the gut to take the stage. I always felt I needed to do more in order to be up, unknown to me that a thousand potentials are less than a single action…

Focus is one main factor that makes a man achieve his dream. Without it, every goal that is set ends up theoretical. Each year, many goals actually end up not being achieved because the distance between goal setting and attainment is a bit wide. Some people never walk on the road towards their goals at all; they just set it and leave it where it was born, and then come back years later to make excuses why they couldn’t get to the finish line. I am not in anyway suggesting that it is so easy to achieve a goal, neither am I saying that it is so difficult not to. Anyone who has the drive and desire can make it to the end of their goals where they get the right results, but those who procrastinate or are lazy, may never ever reach their expectation as far as their goals…

There are too many reasons why a man must stop dreaming. When he waits for weeks, months and years, and nothing seem to be changing; he gets frustrated, and starts inviting negativity into his mind. To most people, accepting whatever comes their way appears more peaceful. With this, they don’t feel disappointed when nothing changes. They simply adapt to the circumstance, and move in any direction that the wind takes them. But the sad challenge is that no one knows the next direction of the wind. It blows wherever it wishes; it cannot be dictated for. With the wind, you are not in control of your destiny. It is every man’s priority to make sure that at least, he has a role to play in the direction of his life. Leaving one’s life to chance puts the person under the rules of probability. The rules of probability are either guided…
