Someone unknowingly used them on me. It is barely a year since we met. Now she’s the closest friend I have. It’s your turn to use them on someone.
Let's start with why being unforgettable is important to your personal life and future success.
The opportunities that have come into your life are from the people and relationships in your life. The ones that will come in the future will be from the people and relationships in your life. Not just that, they will come from the persons who remember you for good.
Last week, a friend called my phone…
You’re probably not aware.
But it’s important to break the news to you:
You're on a flight.
And there are only two destinations: success and failure. You will either land in one. There are no in-between.
I have never seen a pilot who wakes up one morning and kissed his wife and kids, goes to his helicopter, launches into space with a decision to crash against Mount Everest.
Similarly, you're on a flight with a purpose to land at success.
But you cannot always tell.
People, even with good intentions, fail. They didn't realize early they were heading to failure.
Have you ever lived with someone who feels threatened by your success and feels better when you fail? Those are the 'devil' I want to advise you about.
And the aim of this article is for you to learn how to live with them without getting yourself hurt. Most of us will get involved with these people at some point in our life.
They could be just anybody.
They could be friends, relatives, colleagues, or a business partner. They could be siblings. Even though this is however very rare. …
Let’s begin with a very significant truth about relationships: relationships are important. You can’t be truly happy with your life without the warmth and joy that comes from loving someone and being loved in return.
Research has it that social connections bring more happiness into people's lives and so facilitate a more meaningful existence. Not only that, satisfying relationships also promote better health and even longer life.
According to an article published by The Harvard Gazette,
"Close relationships, more than money or fame, are what keep people happy throughout their lives, the study revealed. Those ties protect people from life’s…
Do you doubt that greatness is predictable? Here is why you shouldn't:
The future isn't formed on stones. There is nobody designed to be a success, neither is there anyone who is destined to be a failure in life. Instead, we create and design our future with our most consistent actions and inactions in the present.
Each of our futures is amenable to the dynamics of our action and inaction in the present.
Vivekananda said: Arise, awake and stop not. Till the goal is reached. But you are the creator of your own destiny.
Napoleon Hill said something similar in…
Let's start with this very important submission:
After six relationships, I felt I knew enough what it takes to make a relationship. But that was far from the truth.
No one knows enough to make their relationship work. No matter how many relationships we have had, we still need the contribution of others to make our current relationship work.
The reason is, no two partners are the same. Your ex is totally a different person from your current partner. And it would be disastrous to fit them in the same box. Second, you are too close and involved with your…
It is important you’re successful. Success brings a lot of positive experiences and relationships into your life.
But then, the price you pay to achieve success is very important. If you pay too much a price, the success won’t mean much to you when you eventually get it.
A friend called in a few weeks ago. He was the class pastor in secondary school. We haven't been in touch for about 7 years. He asked for my address to come over.
He was different from the personality image I have of him 7 years ago. He is now a different…
The difference between a great leader and a mediocre leader is not so much what the great leaders do that the mediocre leaders cannot do.
Rather, what sets great leaders apart are the things the mediocre leaders can also do but feel are unimportant and so just overlook them. As long as the mediocre leader continues with this faulty assumption, they keep getting their teams in trouble, waste resources, pass over opportunities, and wasting the teams' potential. As a result, the team and individual members find it difficult to grow and make the most of their potentials.
Having been on…
People and the relationships you form with them are significant elements of your success journey. Because we all need opportunities to succeed in life.
Most of these opportunities come through the relationships and people in our lives.
There are two things I want you to know about people, our relationships with them and life opportunities:
The takeaway here is, opportunities are necessary to maximize our skills and…
Life in the 21st century was difficult enough. Covid made it all worse.
The cost of living is not friendly with most countries. For that reason, we take on multiple jobs to make ends meet. And so, we are more susceptible to burnout and emotional breakdown now than like ever before.
In fact, I have seen families given their children to loved ones to help them cater for them. They could not handle the financial stress.
We need buffers. Not more stressors.
Additional stress to the harsh situation covid has imposed on us could cost our mental health.
