Excellence

It begins with the arrangement of thoughts. Arranging your thoughts in a particular sequence is what develops habits, skills and possibilities which ultimately leads to genius. There is really nothing like success or failure; everything is result and result is feedback. There is nothing mysterious about where you are today. Mysteries are usually ideas/realities that […]

Be Selective

When things do not turn out as you expect, pause and observe… Choose your reactions deliberately. Enter into the elite class of men and women who are highly selective with their thoughts and emotions. For they know that whatever their emotions are linked to, in that very moment, hardens into fact and in time, becomes […]

Communicating Effectively

I delivered this presentation (and another) yesterday at the JobMag Centre in Yaba, Lagos. The training was organised by @OLUY_ME Patrick Oluyide, MD of Patsway Consulting.   We first have to deal with the illusion of understanding when we think of communication. That’s taking a leaf from George Bernard Shaw, who said, “The single biggest […]

Include & Preclude Modality

We sometimes get overwhelmed by the excessive contents of possibilities surrounding us. So many things are possible, it all depends on your preference. Take an extreme scenario. Between living to a full, ripe old age and abruptly seizing from existence is a simple choice. And that choice makes us self-preserving… Or who among us would […]

Your Dominant Thought

Your dominant thought will determine what you see in the world. ***Thinking mode activated*** You will always find what you are looking for. The world is a place with multiple contexts, activities, actors, spectators etcetra. We can’t take in everything within our material proximity. Even though the brain is inundated with millions of thoughts at […]

Thoughts, Mastery & Truth

Thoughts are things. We may think that we can cover up our thoughts for a long time. But we don’t realize that the more we hold them tightly in our minds, the more it moves us and makes us and eventually diffuse into our whole system becoming one with us. So, ultimately we become what […]

Quantum: Awareness

Having written in previous posts about awareness, I am still drawn to write about it today. It’s amazing to realise that that which plagues a man as far as his physical existence is concerned is nothing beyond his ability to correct or heal. Both minimal and acute challenges are offspring of disorder: misplacement of value. […]

Reading

If you ask me, I will tell you that there are two seasons of reading necessary for everyone. The first season, we read to build conviction; and the second? We read generally for contribution to our knowledge base. Without the former, the latter will lead to uncertainty, misery and relativity. How can you ever be […]

Persist

We need to understand how the human mind works. It is a very predicable mechanism that we can operate to our own advantage. Yet, if we refuse to settle down to the discipline of mastering our mind, everything will look mysterious and we will always wonder when things will change in our favor. Napoleon Hill […]
