Today, I’ve already made more than a few decisions. Each one of them has felt completely insignificant. Each one of them has drastically changed the world.
Who determines success in life, what do you do when life puts you in a certain position?. Do you conform to the standards of the world when you feel pressure?
At a time in most parts of Africa especially Nigeria If you don’t study medicine, law, accounting or engineering you will probably not make it in life.
Which creates a kind of delusion of grandiosity in the hearts of people who study these courses especially when they are students? It makes them think their future is secured while students that study courses like botany, marine science, agriculture, sociology and education are also deluded thinking they can’t make it in life .
These makes them not to put in efforts into studying these courses because they see their course of study as not being lucrative.
As Christians irrespective of where you find yourself even if you are selling pepper, always bear in mind that God will bless the works of your hands, there are people in life that have ridiculous things as a means of lively hood and they still excel.
God has given you an excellent spirit and he has crowned you with glory and honor don’t waste God’s promise for your life, excel no matter what. And even if you are studying a professional course let your faith and hope be in God first and not in your profession.
Being rich can make you seem invincible and powerful while being poor can make you miserable and without hope either way let God be your first call whenever you are in trouble .
By the world’s standard only those who go the best schools and are well connected get good jobs. But by God’s standards, he paves way for his children even when there are people more deserving of that job.
NOTE: Faith without works is dead and works without faith is dead. Please even as God is our source let our faith and the spirit of God motivate us to be hardworking, creative and innovative individuals.

“Words do less than 10 things, but actions do more than 10 thousand things. Leaders don’t talk in vain; they follow with actions.” Israelmore Ayivor
Talk is cheap goes the popular saying, unless you are an MC or standup comedian who gets paid to talk, then just saying things you will do and not acting on them can kill your chances of ever achieving your dreams. It is common for ambitious people to verbalize their dreams to their family and friends and possible prospective investors but the real trick comes in pursuing those ideas no matter the obstacles one might encounter.
If you observe closely everyone has some sort of dream they will like to achieve or the next big idea but the question is are they willing to pay the price to see these dreams come to reality, many people give up on dreams when the road to achieving those dreams get rough or after they have had several setbacks.
Since this is a new year, you can have a fresh start; here are 6 ways to walk the talk.
- Write down your dreams or ambitions, don’t just say it put it in ink and paper (a journal preferable).
- Expect setbacks not failure, success by chance or at first trial are rare but if it happens to you then congratulations.
- Expect hard work, someone once said people run away from opportunities because it is dressed in overalls and looks like work. If you want to be successful be prepared to serve the time necessary.
- Be accountable, have a mentor or someone who has achieved success in the area you are pursuing and seek their advice and counsel.
- Be courageous, take a step towards achieving your dreams, I have tried it, it was scary at first but it paid off in the end. Sign up for that class, invest in that business etc. No one ever achieves anything by doing nothing.
- Believe, be optimistic, be positive, have faith, the need for these can never be over emphasized.

1. You don’t like to work hard.
Entrepreneurship is about hard work. It’s about facing indecision, insecurity, instability and borderline insanity.
There’s nothing really pleasant about that. Ironic as it seems, there’s a certain satisfaction in hard work. Humans are made for hard work, and hard work has its own reward.

Hurray! 2016 was an eventful year for me; it was a stepping stone to one of the greatest growth sprout of my mind. I started the year armed with self-awareness and a bunch of goals. One of those goals was to write on my blog every month and another goal was to write for an organization, thank you Bayart for the opportunity to write for your community. When I started my blog earlier in 2016 I was skeptical about being able to maintain the blog with all other projects in my life, sincerely speaking there were days this year I felt like giving up on the blog especially when I was stuck on what post to write next . I want to thank all my friends and my family for their support and encouragement during those periods. If there is anything 2016 has taught me,it is that:
Nothing is impossible.
Good things take work and perseverance.
Never, never give up; hang in there till the very last minute.
Even when things don’t work out how you planned, improvise.
Expect the unexpected.
I want to thank all my readers for their interest in my blog and their beautiful engaging comments. God bless you all; expect bigger better and more enlightening posts in 2017.
