I had a very busy yesterday and since I started working out, I got home really tired and needed to rest my head to prepare for today, I barely laid my tired body on the bed before my phone rang out loud beside my ears, Oohh, I reluctantly rolled over and got it, it was my colleague calling, I could barely hear him but soon it struck me……Michael Jackson is dead he said; then I woke up, are you joking? I asked him? Then he ran out of airtime….

I went back to bed only to get to the office this morning and saw the news, the thriller is dead, the man who loved the Liberian girl can no longer get her, his short trousers that reveal his ankle would no longer have high patronage. Wacko Jacko is gone…. Its ironic that tickets for his upcoming concert is still on sale but the artist is resting in peace.

Well for a black turned white man, he stole the hearts of us all in our teenage years, there is a lot to be said about this man, who lived for only 50 years but touched so many lives in different ways, I searched for facts about him and you would enjoy these facts especially Number 20…

imagesFor sometime now I have been writing a lot on motivating others and I feel to an extent I’m following the steps of my mentor and this has made me think what I’m really turning into, I wonder how my words and my decision affect those around me, I have a friend and colleague I met barely 6 months ago and we have shared ideas and knowledge for this long and I only noticed that who you are is determined by the quality of people you interact with, your network is your networth,.(yes It’s you Chukwudi). We sit sometime and reminisce about the future and how we would build the next biggest company that would shake the world…well at least Nigeria, and trust me you would hear about it soon, we also have made decisions that well might just be our step into reality.

I read an article and would like to share my finding with you all, I wonder why most people find life so easy and others are still struggling to survive, why are we here and others are there? The truth is that you can make your life whatsoever you desire: you can actually live your dreams, before now maybe your paycheck is determined by the size of your paycheck or the your income, your certificate or maybe your status quo, perhaps you even feel that life is not fair, it’s time to drop your feelings and emotions: embrace the fact that your life is in your hands, you have within you all you need to succeed or to fail, you need to step out in faith.

Beginnings is half done, every beginner is a winner, it is the first step to success, it helps you break the force of inertia, procrastination and the failure to launch.. Continue reading

imagesLife is full of surprises, there are definitely good times and bad times, those times when you wake up with a full smile on the face and when you go to bed with a bad frown, times when the world seems to be closing up in you, times when everything looks so black, you might have passed through these times before when it seemed that the logical thing was to give up and give in, to throw away your dreams and embrace existence, I have too.

Thomas S. Monson said;

“The heights that great men reached and kept were not obtained by sudden flight. But they, while their companions slept were toiling upwards in the night.”

I have learnt over time that the key ingredient needed for success is PERSEVERANCE.

I have worked in an environment where people management was our responsibility; I have studied people, companies and businesses and have come to understand why the greatest speech in the world has just 4 words; “Never never Give up”

Luck is real, yeah people get them but what is luck, from my end, I define LUCK as Living Under Correct Knowledge

I love the story of the postage stamp and I would like us to develop the attitude of a postage stamp that sticks till it gets to the destination, no matter where you are, no matter how bad it is, no matter how frustrating it has been, we should stick to the end, although it is really very difficult to achieve, I left where I was because things didn’t look like it again,  it became obvious that I wasn’t making head ways so I moved on, but the advantage of staying put is consistency would show off and success is inevitable. Albert Einstein said it correctly when he said; Genius is 1% inspiration and 99% perspiration. Even when you are doing the right thing, do it to till luck comes.

There are those times in life when it seems that the lack of clarity is at its peak, when the dark night lingers as you await the dawn, and it seems that the sun would never shine, when you await the end of your journey and you take the next turn which then leads you to a bigger maze, when fear has stolen your confidence and loneliness chokes your strength, when loves has left and no sign of returning, when those you loves turn their backs at you, when the night lasts for 20 hours, when the questions on your lips are too bitter for the mouth, there are those times, but these are the times perseverance makes the difference between documentable history and sheer history. It is in times like this that you must believe in yourself, even when those around you have given up all hope in you, this is when your life would stand up tall against all challenges, and you would conquer and recover whatever you thought was lost within your life. It is from the darkest hours of our lives, from the deepness of despair and hurting that we find inner courage and inner meaning so vast that it enables us to rise from our knees and stand tall to fight.

It is usually after the darkest hours of our lives that we see the first glimpse of light; people of great ability always achieve greatness because they don’t know when to stop. Please don’t stop hang on to your dream,….Persevere.
