In my first article for 2018, I advised my readers and followers to position themselves for success, and in it, I mentioned that anyone that does not set goals is set to fail, and anyone that does, without a committed effort to make it work is also doomed to fail. After publishing the article, I felt a need to emphasise the importance of finding your lane for success in 2018. I know that life is a marathon, not a sprint, and before someone swiftly points out that in marathons, you don’t need to run in lanes, let me quickly do this explanation – all the partitioned lanes in a marathon form a single lane if the race is taking place in a stadium – and if it’s a road marathon, the roads form the lane. So you see, in a marathon, there’s a lane; if you run outside the lane,…

Towards the end of every year, sensible minded people and those that haven’t given up on their dreams and to life, begin to review their achievements of the previous year – in this case, the achievements of 2017. As they peep into the year, or as they pay detailed attention to the happenings of 2017, they are able to pin down where they succeeded and where they appear to have failed, and with their analysis, make projections for the new year 2018. It isn’t enough to make projections or plans for a successful 2018, but rather, it would be absolutely more helpful to position yourself for a successful 2018. What does it mean to position yourself? I will use a simple illustration to explain this. If for instance, an engineering company advertises for a job vacancy in which they need the services of an accountant, it will only take a…

I can’t recall once in my life, ever running out of positive beliefs – I can’t remember ever running out of dreams. If there was something I had in multiples, it was the ability to keep seeing life change for the better. Many times, even as a child, I would dream of living in the best houses, driving the best cars, having the best family, and being the chief executive officer of the biggest corporations on earth. So, when I meet people that are deficient in dreaming big, I wonder why having a dream is a big deal. But the sad thing is from childhood to old age, many people dream until dream becomes nightmare. The stage of nightmare is the stage of sudden realisation that dream can be doom when nothing is done to make it real. When some man realises at an irreversible age that to succeed, dreaming…

How do I define entrepreneurship? I wanted to look at the technical meanings as introduction to this very valuable subject, but I said to myself, no – no, because, entrepreneurship isn’t a theoretical concept – it is what the eyes see, what the hands feel, and what the tongues taste. If you can’t behold it, embrace it, and relate with it in physicality, it is nothing but an ideology lost in arbitrary world. For this conclusion, I made up my mind that the best definitions of entrepreneurship are the ones that emanate, not from the classroom, but from those that are one hundred percent in the game. How does Ray Kroc, the Founder of MacDonald see entrepreneurship? He said, “If you’re not a risk taker, you should get the hell out of business.” Scott Belsky, Behance’s Co-Founder, in putting it straight said, “It’s not about ideas. It’s about making ideas…
