Every decision you make in life has ability to impact on your ultimate destination (destiny). However, you should not be afraid of making decision for fear of mistake, because not making a decision is a decision on its own, and a worse decision for that matter.

It Is In You

On 1st December 1955, Rosa Parks, a seamstress in a local department store in Montgomery, Alabama, refused to vacate her seat in the colored section of the local bus for a white passenger, after the white section had filled up. 

Her resistance led to her arrest and ignited several protests that led to the emancipation of the colored in the United States. 

Rosa Parks drew courage from within herself and decided to save her pride even though she stood the risk of being jailed or even killed. If you seek to save your life, you will eventually lose it. When a man ceases to fear for his life, no force can stop him, living or dead. No one can encourage you better than yourself. It is all in you.

There is such an irresistible power in each one of us. We have such potent force lying within us that when released, no force can resist. If you truly believe, you will move mountains.

Severally when offered the chance of being freed, Nelson Mandela refused and stood his ground that his people must be allowed to live freely and rule in his country. This force kept him active for 27 years in incarceration, some of which he spent in the loneliest places on earth, Robben Island being one of such.

This force within us is powerful enough to not only change our lives but also change the world. Unfortunately, many people go to their graves without even knowing they carry such power. 

Former President Obama activated his and defied all odds to become the first black President of the United States.

Are you willing to draw on that power? Do you want to rock your world? Are you tired of your present status?

Then let us meet at “Cage the Minions; Unleash the Giants” seminar. 15th July 2017 is the date. Register now! See details in the flier below.
Happy Eid Mubarak!

Self Development

You are at your best when you are truly and fully yourself. The best form of self development is fully maximising your unique strengths. 

We live in times when people bury their real selves and try to live someone else’s live. Nothing wrong having role models, but not at the expense of forgetting who you are. 

Bruce Lee said, “Always be yourself, express yourself, have faith in yourself, do not go out and look for a successful personality and duplicate it.”
You are who you are and you have your unique strengths. Inferiority complex comes from belittling your own uniqueness and envying another person’s uniqueness. Superiority complex comew from failing to acknowledge the strengths or uniqueness of others.

You may not have the strength the other person possesses, but you have your own strengths that he doesn’t have. Trying to be like the other man is the root cause of identity complexes. 

Find yourself, know yourself, discover yourself and develop yourself whiles also acknowledging others in their uniqueness.

 Being yourself is the best form of self development.

Know Your Purpose

Not knowing the purpose for occupying a position will either make you an object of abuse or an abusive fellow. Don’t live a purposeless live.

(Watch out for “Time-Out to Prevent being Timed-Out” with Adewumi Oni and other inspiring speakers, registration details will be out soon.)

It Won’t Happen by Wishing

It is often said that ‘Life is not fair.’ We often console ourselves with this cliché, throwing up our hands in resignation and wishing that mother luck will somehow intervene and turn things around.

Truly we all need some elements of luck or good fortune to reach our goals, however such luck rarely comes when one adopts a passive position. Nature abhors passivity and this is evident all around us. When a tree refuses to bud, it is cut down. When a sea stop flowing, the creatures in it start dying and it starts stinking. 

Nature thrives when there is life, in the same vein, our lives are meant to be full of life. We should never allow challenges and vicissitudes of life push us to the point of becoming mere wishful thinkers. Don’t just dream, pursue your dream vigorously. Your dreams won’t happen by chance, you have got to make them happen with planning, preparation, prayer , persistence and proper positioning.

As you begin a new week, encourage yourself and pursue your goals with renewed vigor. When nobody encourages you, draw encouragement from the promises held in your dream. Go for it again. Don’t just wish it, work for it.

Happy Democracy Day!

The Esau’s Mentality (3)

People with the Esau’s Mentality have tendencies to judge people or things by their looks. They are easily swayed by material things and often fall victim to dupes, fraudsters, and cheats. 

Esau returned from a hard day’s hunting without any catch. He was very hungry and met Jacob cooking. He asked for some of the food, but Jacob placed a price on the food, the birthright of Esau. At that very moment, the birthright of Esau was equivalent to a plate of meal. He easily equated his birthright to one meal. 

How many times do we shortchange ourselves for some gratifications? Sometimes it is sex, money, material possessions, positions, etc. Ladies sleep with strangers for money, trading their destiny for money, forgetting that destiny can buy money, but money can’t buy destiny.

For momentary lack, guys engage in money rituals, armed robbery, drug peddling and other vices. Esau’s Mentality robs people of their destiny and makes people settle for ‘morsels’ when they could be the ones dishing out the food. 

It is one of the reasons people sell their votes for a loaf of bread, or for a tin of rice, or sometimes for money. 

It is the reason youths allowed themselves to be used as tools of destruction by politicians. If you value your birthright, you would ask that politician to send his own children on such errands. 

It is time we changed this mentality before it changes us irreparably. Make up your mind today not to be a victim again. 

Thank you and have a great week ahead.
