Passion is a good thing, especially when it comes to the work we do. When people say they are passionate about the work they do, it usually means that they really love what they do. When people say that that they want to work on their passion, it usually means, that they want to find a job or create a business around something they’re naturally passionate about. It is a beautiful to do something that we love to do, and when you do something you love, it can take the some of the tedium and … [Read more...] about You Can Work With Passion Right Now
I recently said ‘no’ to an opportunity because I had to face another opportunity that was more important to me in the long term, and I needed my resources- time, money, energy and mind-power for this second opportunity. ‘No’ is very important word. It emphasises the power of choice that we have as human beings. Without realising it, we say ‘no’ to different things, requests and opportunities all the time. We don’t have to utter the word to say it. Most times, it is said in our minds. Saying … [Read more...] about The Art of Saying ‘No’
We have heard about the four basic temperaments of human beings and their attributes. The Sanguine person is the extroverted talker who is a lot of fun, has a lot of friends, but can’t seem to stay committed to anyone or anything. The Choleric one is the extroverted doer who boldly gets things done, commands the respect of others but ruthlessly uses people as they bulldoze their way through a project. The Melancholic one is the introverted thinker who is very artistic, creative and detailed but … [Read more...] about It’s Your Temperament, Not Your Prison
A lot has been said and written on the idea of living a life of purpose, so much so that sometimes, it may put a person under pressure to figure out their life’s purpose right away. Let us ease off the pressure to the right degree (because we do need a measure of pressure to ward off complacency). I’ll start by saying that you are a purposeful being that was created by a purposeful God for a reason. I believe that even though our lives are lived in different aspects and in different seasons, … [Read more...] about Your Purpose in This Season
What would people say? This is a major question that plagues everyone that chooses to do something different. The issue of what people will say about you is always a big one when you dare to take the steps to live the life of your dreams. If you’re a very bold person, this issue may manifest itself as a small concern. But if you’re not feeling bold, this issue can be a very real fear. It can become so real that it develops big chains that keep us stuck in the regular way of life and prevents … [Read more...] about WHAT WOULD PEOPLE SAY?
This is Nigeria. It’s a land of promise and hope. It’s also a land in need of help. It is not an accident that you are a Nigerian or that you’re living in Nigeria or connected to Nigeria, somehow. God could have created you as an American, a Belgian or a Kenyan, but He made you a Nigerian. And He’s a purposeful God. As an individual, you have been created in a unique fashion. There is no one like you in the entire universe, and you have been made a Nigerian. There is darkness in the land, and … [Read more...] about Take your Place in Nigeria
One of the most powerful statements I’ve heard in recent times is this: ‘Focus on the activities rather that the results’. This statement draws from the assumption that certain activities lead to certain results, inevitably. This made me think about the process of goal setting. Setting goals is a major factor in the pursuit of progress. We all have them in different areas. “I want to weigh 60kg by November.” “I want to earn a million naira.” “I want to be closer to my spouse.” “I want to have a … [Read more...] about Focus on the Habits
