The Power of Dream

Joseph had two dreams at age seventeen, and after sharing the dreams with his parents and brothers, his life took a tragic turn. The favoured son with coats of many colors was sold into slavery and from slavery to Prison. 

Somehow he knew he was destined to be a leader so even while in Potiphar’s house, he composed himself so well that it didn’t take long for Potiphar to commit his entire household to his hands. No matter what life has thrown at you, or no matter how low it appears you have sunken, never take your eyes off your dream and never change who you are for any reason. 
Again, he soon became the favorite in Potiphar’s house such that everyone except his master and the master’s wife had to take instruction from him. Do you always find yourself in certain places and positions even in your seemingly lowly estate, those places are positions are pointers to your destiny. 
Then came the great temptation, to either settle down and take the master’s wife or resist and lose favour. He resisted and found himself in prison. Bur even prison could not change his destined leadership position, for he became the trusted hand by the warden. No force can stop your destiny from being fulfilled as long as you don’t change who you are. As a matter of fact, you are the only one who can change God’s plan for your life. 
While in prison, his opportunity came in disguise when he saw the countenance of the baker and butler. He could have ignored their countenance and kept to  himself knowing he was unjustly imprisoned. But he never lost his cheerfulness and desire to help others, he reached out and asked what was wrong. Don’t become morose and uncaring because of your problems. Your destiny lies in helping others. The path to fulfilment of destiny is the path of service, keep serving. 
He interpreted their dreams and he was forgotten for two years. He didn’t start cursing the Chief Butler for not remembering him. He kept doing his job. When the appointed time came, he was remembered. He was remembered because his throne was ready. Don’t jump ahead of God. Don’t jump for a stool when He is preparing a throne for you. 
Please understand this, no power on earth can stop God’s dream for your life except you yourself. So ensure that you are not working against your dream, and don’t bury your dream, keep it clear, written and constantly placed before you. Hab. 2:2-3. You will get there! 
God bless us all. 
Good morning!

Riches Don’t Last Forever

Seasons come and go. Summer, Winter, Spring, Autumn, they all have their times and seasons, none is permanent. Riches also have seasons. There are times you do less and you earn a lot, and vice versa. Sometimes we get carried away and assume it is our prowess or skills that is responsible for our wealth, yes it could be, but not always. 
When it is your season and you step into the season, everything will work in your favour. When your season is over, you can only enjoy as much as you have set aside during your rainy season. ‘For riches certainly make themselves wings; they fly away as an eagle toward heaven.’  – Proverbs 23:5b, 27:24. This means you cannot afford to eat with your ten fingers if you don’t want to become history. 
In every wealth you make, there is the seed portion and there is the bread portion. Don’t eat your seed with your bread. Your seed is what determines your continuity of harvest. Stop spending as if you have access to the vault of Central Bank!  Even if you have access, the vault may be changed. 
Invest on assets and less on consumptions. Consumptions empty your purse, assets multiply your income generating capacity.  Stop assuming the income will keep flowing like that for life, even rivers change course over time. Save, invest, buy assets that appreciate over time. Vehicles are liabilities, they start depreciating from day of purchase. Land and properties will always appreciate. Gold will always appreciate. Invest in lives too. Sometimes what will save you is the destinies you have helped. 
Be wise, for riches make themselves wings and fly to heaven, where they came from. 
God bless us all. 
Good morning!

Motivating Factor Determines Success

The common assumption about business is that it is setup primarily for profit making. This perhaps is one of the reasons businesses don’t outlive their founders. Once you make profit making your sole aim in business, a lot of things will suffer which eventually will erode your ability to make profit. 
Great businesses are founded on the philosophy of solving a need or filling a gap in the market. How best you meet the perceived and existing need relatively to other businesses meeting same need, is what determines your success in business. Profits travel along with problem solvers. Whether individuals or businesses, when you always seek to meet a need, you will make profit in the process. 
It is therefore important to review your underlying business philosophy, if you are already in business,  if you are just about starting, then you must define it right. 
Beyond identifying and meeting a need, you must be able to provide answers to the following questions :

I.  What unique strengths do I/we have to meet this need? It could be your human resource capacity, or technological skill, or location advantage. You must maximise your strengths to the disadvantage of existing competitors and new entrants. 

II. What are my weaknesses that competitors can take advantage of in the chosen market? It could be your business size, poor distribution network, and so on. You must find a way of mitigating the identified weaknesses. 

III. What are the peculiar opportunities and threats in your chosen market, political, environmental, social and technological? How do you leverage on the opportunities and deal with the threats? 
When you are motivated by the need to meet a need and then build a business model around that motivation bearing in mind the questions above, your chances of success is very high. Also, you must regularly review your answers to the questions to ascertain your relevance. 
Get your business philosophy right and you are bound to be successful. 

God bless us all. 
Good morning!

Dare to be Different 

In a world where conformity seems to be the order, where joining them if you can’t beat them has become the norm, non-conformers and men of integrity are becoming rarer by the day. Truth is becoming an endangered virtue. Our values have been mortgaged on the altar of ‘get rich quick’ syndromes. 
In the midst of all these, God is still looking out for those who will dare to be different, who will confront and challenge the corrupt system, who will continue to speak the truth no matter whose ox will be gored. He is searching to and fro the earth to find those on behalf of whom He will show Himself strong. 
You don’t have to conform. Don’t be afraid of being a lone voice, heaven is backing you up. Don’t give in to the pressure of joining the corrupt system, both time and eternity will reward your steadfastness. The riches and wealth the world is pursuing in a wrong way,  are being reserved to be transferred to you if you stand fast. 
Three things will speak for everyone of us, whether we are conformers or non-conformers. One, our works will speak for us, our works will either bless us or bring curses on us. Two, our names which are founded on our works will continue to speak for us long after we are gone. Three, cloud of witnesses in heaven will speak for us, either in praise or condemnation. 

So while you are at that work, ponder on these three things and dare to be different. 
God bless us all. 
Good morning!

From the ‘Step Out of the Confines of Comfort’ Seminar (2)

Another lesson from the seminar is the need to stop paying attention to people’s opinion, especially when it has to do with your vision. If you are the type who always wants to get people’s approval on anything you do, you are likely to remain confined in your comfort zone. 
You must adopt the Eagle’s Mentality. Eagles fly alone, they don’t fly with other birds. You must fly with people with similar dream or vision. You can’t go far if you keep sparrows and other birds around you. Fly with eagles. 
Eagles also fly to high altitudes, which enables them to see far. When they set their sight on a prey, they focus intensely on the prey until they catch it. You must be able to separate yourself from the crowd and distractions from time to time in order to sharpen your focus. 
People will want you to conform and stay within your confines, (the things or positions they have known you with), if you don’t adopt the Eagle’s Mentality, you will constantly be dragged back. 
God bless us all. 
Good morning!

From the ‘Step Out Of The Confines Of Comfort’  Seminar 

The much talked about ‘Step Out of the Confines of Comfort’ seminar took place on Saturday 22nd and it was an eye opener. We had a wonderful time this last Saturday as we learnt on the need to push for more, ask questions and dare our fears. 
One of the lessons we shared was about  the lives of soldiers. Their lives are spent mostly in the barracks, training fields or battlefields. Among these three places, the place where things really happen is on the battle field. This is where they possess new territories and gain new grounds. They are at their best on the battlefield. Their sense of alertness is hypersensitive on the battlefield, because it is a matter of life and death, survive or die, win or lose, on the battlefield. 

Meanwhile in the barracks, the same toughminded fighters on the battlefield become soft, jocular, backslapping and even careless, sometimes sleeping without any care for external aggression. 
Your Confines Of Comfort are like the barracks. You are relaxed and your guards are down within your Confines of Comfort. You don’t think beyond the four walls of your world (the box). Unfortunately, until you step out of that box, you can’t win new frontiers or make new discoveries. You can’t see beyond your world as long as you remain confined to your world. 
This is why you must never settle within your Confines Of Comfort. You must keep moving. You must keep breaking new grounds and possessing new territories. 
This is especially moreso for the black race, we have become used to waiting for the white race to produce everything for us. We are comfortable using our hard earned local currencies to purchase foreign currencies to pay for the produce of the western world, mostly produced with materials obtained from our backyards! So saddening and painful! Our generation must not recycle this same mentality, we must be the game changer. 
It is time to get out of the rut of Comfort and take our place in destiny. It is time for you to produce your product. It is discovery time! 
God bless us all. 
Good morning! 

The D-Day is Here! 

We are breaking out of all limitations and pleasures that have been holding us back. 
We are pressing into new frontiers. We are breaking barriers and raising bars. 
It is happening today at the ‘Step Out of the Confines of Comfort’ seminar. 
See you at the venue by 10am. Gatecrashers will receive mercy. :mrgreen:
God bless us all. 
Good morning!
