5 Inspiring Ways to Set Your Dream in Motion

Dreams are fabulous representative of our subconscious self. They reflect our perception and perspective about our goals and ambitions. However, most dreams get stuck in the conception stage. Most people find it difficult to put wheels on their goals to set it in motion and they end up rotten at inception. Some people dream and immediately pull the handbrake out of fear of the journey ahead. Be courageous and saddle up to bear every cross that might come with the materialisation of your dream. "“Whatever you do, or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius and power and magic in it.”- Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

Dare To Dream

Dreaming is a fantastic experience. It brings the hope of things to come coupled with ecstasy. Dreaming refreshes a tired soul and reignites a dampened goal. A dream is an underlying bedrock that supports the (slow/rapid) growth of a goal. The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.

Forging Ahead

I bless God for another opportunity to be able to do what I love doing best. I also want to say thank you for joining me today. In the past couple of weeks that I was away, I've been able to learn quite a lot which I would be sharing on this platform going forward - one of which the above subject is based on. November 2016, I was at an official gathering where the words 'Forging Ahead' directed the course of the programme.

Happiness is the Key to Success

Happiness – a sacred word craved by so many, appears to be felt by a few.A feeling that is everyone’s right but not everyone’s possession. A hidden gem with the potential to set lives aglow. Happiness is also an attitude. It is an algorithm that can only be encoded/decoded by qualified programmers. It is like a world, a huge universe ironically with few inhabitants. Happiness is a skill, only for the wise.

Opportunity: Don't Wait, Be Creative!

Sometimes last week around Ikeja GRA axis, I saw a guy with this inscription on his T-shirt 'Do not wait for your future, create it.' The deep meaning of these words didn’t sink in and I casually waved it off. Recently, I had a chat with a friend and she shared a picture of a lovely painting of the popular Beauty and the Beast story with me. I was pretty astonished – not at the quality of the painting – but at the fact that she has so much talent than I knew. I have always known her flair for artworks – she’s also a budding poet! But I never thought she is that blessed. So I inquired of her, “What else do you do that I do not know of?” She replied, “I’m a jack of all trade and master of none”. Then I advised her to pick one of her supposed numerous talents and groom herself on it.Her response threw me aback, “I need a sign, a writing in the cloud… a letter from the Pope.”

4 Easy Ways To Set Your Priority Right!

The word priority is one not too strange to a common Nigerian man. It cuts across all age bracket and spheres of life. Safely used but poorly implemented. Why? Most people have failed to recognise true meaning of this word. We are going to play around the definition before going through its relevance to today's lesson.

TIME – The Essence of Fructuous Living

It has often been said that time and tides wait for no man. I first learnt about this phrase when I was in primary four from the literature book ‘Çhike and the River’ written by renowned Nigerian Author Chinua Achebe when Samuel Maduka Obi (SMOG) told Chike to hurry up and gather enough shillings (money) to cross the river Niger before the bridge was built across it.

Also, it is said that Mr Time is nobody’s friend. But I beg to disagree. Who would give every Tom, Dick and Harry equal chance at life? Only a true friend could. Who would provide us with an equal platform to thrive and make headway in life? Only a true friend could. How then is Mr Time no man’s friend? Truth is, time can indeed be no man’s friend. In fact, it can only be friend with those who come to embrace the way it operates. True? Absolutely yes!
Before we proceed, let’s agree on some facts about time.
