Principle of  Success-Effective ways to achieve maximum success and genuine happiness.

Principle of Success-Effective ways to achieve maximum success and genuine happiness.

For modern billionaires, philanthropy is a spiritual priority. Many of them spend money to support the needy, to develop art, education, and health. Bill Gates and Warren Buffett started their “The Giving Pledge” campaign, the idea of which is donating 50% of their income to charity. There are more than 150 participants in this campaign including Mark Zuckerberg, George Lucas, Victor Pinchuk, and Vladimir Potanin.

  • “Millenials are one of the generations that sent the most money to charity throughout history. But it’s not only about the money; you can donate your time as well.” — Mark Zuckerberg

Giving someone your time, attention, and energy means investing in them. By helping others, a person feels needed and gains peace in his heart that no dress is able to give. It is important to correctly prioritize. Children in orphanages or animals in shelters need your time more than a neighbor who complains about her lazy husband.

Being a mentor to the young generation is another vital means of charity just like PLACY Club. It is in giving more that we receive much more. There is an adage that says, the most selfless people are the most selfish. The reason is because these selfless people tend to receive large portion of goodness from the universe. That’s the secret. In every thought and action of yours, be intentional about making an impact, sustainable one is better. You don’t have to be the richest of all to make someone feel genuine happiness.

Don’t be surprised that a person who only buys a satchet of water for a very thirsty man might have done so much good than someone who probably went to a charity home to spend thousands of naira just to be captured by the media showing that he or she is also a philanthropist.

There is something we must understand, the amount of happiness we are able to generate unto others is equals to how much happiness we feel. Therefore when we feel down, understand that there is a need to light up the mood of someone, that person could be you, because you can only give what you have.

Make sure you intentionally take good care of yourself; your emotions by filling your mind up with good thoughts, enlightening yourself through every possible means and strive to apply the knowledge you have acquired through the learning process.

Life is a reflection of who we are, once the outside world is making you feel bad, blame no one, take up the responsibility, find out about those thoughts that are illusionary, that are not serving you right and get rid of them by not paying attention to them anymore . Our perception of situations evokes the feelings that we experience. Therefore to achieve inner peace you must take care of your mind, meditate more often, visit a psychologist or psychotherapist if need be, talk to a trusted and wise person. Only someone with inner peace will be able to feel energized and inspired to help other people. And remember the more we give, the more we get.

 

Give others what you will like to receive. You wish you had attention, give to someone who asks for it. Give to others what they need, the Universe in turn gratifies your own needs too. This means you can simply educate someone on what they need to learn, in the process you learn more or you simply get rewarded with something special for your kind actions. It doesn’t have to be what you expect, just believe that you get what you need. Don’t mind what the society is filled with or expects. You are unique and definitely will get something different that you deserve. Inability to understand this makes us compare and irrationally compete till we let those gifts become stale. If we don’t exploit our divine gifts such as potential, knowledge, energy productively, they become poisonous and they start erupting unpleasant emotions and of course affecting our physical health.

“The happiest people are the most selfless people and vice versa. I live to uplift the world and my entire being is dedicated to such practices”_The Universe

Always understand and remember that what you see in the world that pisses you off is telling you something within you that is not very right for your optimal functioning. So always be conscious of this fact, don’t entertain anger, it is destructive and extremely painful to you not the person you are mad at.

We feel peaceful during sleep because we are unable to complicate life with our unpleasant thoughts, perceptions and judgment. Now that we know this secret, we should exploit it adequately. We should let the past be, let the future take care of itself, worries, regrets and the likes won’t change a thing. All we have as a reality is the present moment, we should focus our energy and thoughts on that presence.

It is okay to pick lessons from the past but not dwell on the unpleasant thoughts of it, it is okay to prepare for the future but not to be overwhelmed by it. Do what you can today that will move you closer to realizing your dreams. That’s why setting goals and priorities are very vital.

You are allowed to feel bad, but that should not last more than few seconds, that’s about the time the reflexive response elapses. Once it exceeds, then we are intentionally holding on to a hot charcoal and expecting not to get burnt.

We have all that we need to succeed, we only need to unfold it by being mindful, conscious and resolving to good habits. Be sincerely grateful for all you have and all that you wish for. That is how to attract more goodness into your life. You show gratitude better when you share your blessings-your time, happiness, knowledge, wealth, time etc. Whatever you give a little of it to attract abundance.

“All creatures evolve from a source,  we are all one, we have within us the greatest of powers the Almighty has granted us,  but to unfold this greatness and the infinite power, we must embrace LOVE. It is the essence of life. You will be blessed with abundant success and all that you ever wish for, but there is a sacrifice to make,  relate with this essence of life, live your life strictly according to the principle of love and watch yourself transcend beyond all your imaginations and all limitations”_The Universe.

If you are sad but you have money or time to spare, spare it and watch your mood lightens up because as mentioned, life is reflection of our inner being. You are probably feeling sad cos someone else is, it could be for a different reason, but when you reach out to fill that void for the external body, then in exchange, yours get filled and you receive more grace for taking care of others and in the process uplifting yourself too.You will be self actualized when you realize truly that we all co-exist.

 

Note: You might have read something like this before, all of us usually have. But trust me the one difference between the successful ones and those that are not is that the successful ones walk the talk, they act out all of these principles while the mediocres might learn but fail to practise. Do the latter believe that just reading about things yield the results?  No way! You have to let what you have learned alter your behaviours and gradually healthy habits are formed and progressively you will be living a fruitful life filled with meaning, purpose and all the bliss one can experience. 

 

A potential millionaire must be aware of this secret

A potential millionaire must be aware of this secret


A potential millionaire must be aware of this secret to truly become a millionnaire turned billionnaire.

“The secret of millionnaire mind is such a great book. It compelled me to actions. I was motivated to start my business after I read the book. My business is now worth billions of dollars”_T.A

We live in a world of duality: up and down, light and dark, hot and cold, in and out, fast and slow, right and left. These are but a few examples of the thousands of opposite poles. For one pole to exist, the other pole must also exist. Is it possible to have a right side without a left side? Not a chance.

Consequently, just as there are “outer” laws of money, there must be “inner” laws. The outer laws include things like business knowledge, money management, and investment strategies. These are essential. But the inner game is just as important.

An analogy would be a carpenter and his tools. Having top-of-the-line tools is imperative, but being the top-notch carpenter who masterfully uses those tools is even more critical. I have a saying: “It’s not enough to be in the right place at the right time. You have to be the right person in the right place at the right time.”

So who are you? How do you think? What are your beliefs? What are your habits and traits? How do you really feel about yourself ? How confident are you in yourself? How well do you relate to others? How much do you trust others?

Many people who come from poor families become angry and rebellious about it. Often they either go out and get rich or at least have the motivation to do so. But there’s one little hiccup, which is actually a big burp. Whether such people get rich or work their buns off trying to become successful, they are not usually happy. Why? Because the root of their wealth or motivation for money is anger and resentment. Consequently, money and anger become linked in their minds, and the more money such individuals have or strive for, the angrier they get.

Eventually, the higher self says, “I’m tired of being angry and stressed out. I just want to be peaceful and happy.” So they ask the same mind that created the link what to do about this situation. To which their mind answers, “If you want to get rid of your anger, you’re going to have to get rid of your money.” So they do. They subconsciously get rid of their money. They overspend or make a poor investment decision or get a financially disastrous divorce, or they sabotage their success in some other way. But no matter, because now these folks are happy. Right? Wrong!

Things are even worse because now they’re not just angry, they’re broke and angry. They got rid of the wrong thing! They got rid of the money instead of the anger, the fruit instead of the root. Meanwhile, the real issue is, and always was, the anger between them and their parents. And until that anger is resolved, they will never be truly happy or peaceful regardless of how much money they have or don’t have.

The reason or motivation you have for making money or creating success is vital. If your motivation for acquiring money or success comes from a nonsupportive root such as fear, anger, or the need to “prove” yourself, your money will never bring you happiness.

We need to find the right reason and purpose to gather wealth, if we desire everlasting prosperity and bliss. We must have achieved an inner state of harmony to truly live a purposeful, healthy and wealthy life.

To attract abundant success, happiness, money, good relationships etc, we must identify our inner constructs that are impeding our growth and success.

However we must remember that the first element of all change is awareness. Watch yourself, become conscious, observe your thoughts, your fears, your beliefs, your habits, your actions, and even your inactions. Put yourself under a microscope. Study yourself.

By achieving consciousness, we can live from who we are today rather than who we were yesterday. In this way, we can respond appropriately to situations, tapping the full range and potential of our skills and talents, rather than inappropriately reacting to events, driven by the fears and insecurities of the past.

It’s all about you. Remember, your inner world reflects your outer world. If you believe you are not enough, you will validate that belief and create the reality that you don’t have enough. On the other hand, if you believe you are plenty, you will validate that belief and create plenty of abundance. Why? Because “plenty” will be your root, which will then become your natural way of being.

Consciousness is observing your thoughts and actions, so that you can operate from true choice in the present, rather than acting on the basis of programming from the past. It is about the power to respond from your higher self rather than to react from your fearbased, “lower” self. In this way you can be the best you can be and fulfill your destiny. But you know what? The essence of this transformation is not just about you. It is about the entire world.

Our world is nothing more than a reflection of the people who make it up. As each individual raises his or her consciousness, the world raises its consciousness—moving from fear to courage, from hatred to love, and from scarcity to prosperity for all. It is therefore up to each of us to enlighten ourselves so that we may add more light to the world. If you want the world to be a certain way, then start with you being that way. If you want the world to be a better place, start with you being better.

That is why I believe it’s your duty to grow yourself to your fullest potential, to create abundance and success in your life; for in doing so, you will be able to help others and add to the world in a positive way. I therefore ask you to share this message of consciousness and empowerment with others.

Get the message of this information out to as many people as possible. Commit to telling at least one hundred of your friends, family, and associates about it or consider getting the secret of the millionnaire mind  book for them as a life-changing gift. Not only will they be introduced to powerful financial concepts, they will learn to observe the way they think, raise their consciousness, and in turn raise the consciousness of the planet.

The dream is that one book, one course, one person at a time, we can change the world for the better. We ask for your support in making this dream a reality.

To continue reading and discover more to achieve optimal success in terms of self development and financial growth, you need to read this book; The Secret of The Secret of the Millionnaire Mind. Read, assimilate and practically apply the knowledge, in no time you will begin to experience abundant bliss and prosperity.

If Dangote,Tony Elumelu, Alakija Otedola, Abdulrahman AbdulRazaq etc can be successful, you can equally achieve abundant success and more!! All you need do is maintain an inner balance, reflect this inner peace and stay connected at all times to ProInSafe blog and social media pages.

Transform Your Life and Career For The Best Now

Transform Your Life and Career For The Best Now

To effectively transform and elevate your life and career you need to read Power of Now By Eckart Tolle.

      A beggar had been sitting by the side of a road for over thirty years. One day a stranger walked by. “Spare some change?” mumbled the beggar, mechanically holding out his old baseball cap. “I have nothing to give you,” said the stranger. Then he asked: “What’s that you are sitting on? ” ” Nothing,” replied the beggar. “Just an old box. I have been sitting on it for as long as I can remember. ” ” Ever looked inside?” asked the stranger. “No,” said the beggar. “What’s the point? There’s nothing in there.” “Have a look inside,” insisted the stranger.

The beggar managed to pry open the lid. With astonishment, disbelief, and elation, he saw that the box was filled with gold. The Author of this book-Power of Now is the stranger who has nothing to give you and who is telling you to look inside. Not inside any box, as in the parable, but somewhere even closer, inside yourself. “But I am not a beggar,” that’s your thought. Those who have not found their true wealth, which is the radiant joy of Being and the deep, unshakable peace that comes with it, are beggars, even if they have great material wealth. They are looking outside for scraps of pleasure or fulfillment, for validation, security, or love, while they have a treasure within that not only includes all those things but is infinitely greater than anything the world can offer.

If you seek pure and long lasting transformation, this book is recommended. It touches all areas of your life; your health, career, relationships will progressively improve if you read and apply the words in this book. It draws your attention to what is false in you. It speaks of the nature of human unconsciousness and dysfunction as well as its most common behavioral manifestations, from conflict in relationships to warfare between tribes or nations. Such knowledge is vital, for unless you learn to recognize the false as false — as not you — there can be no lasting transformation, and you would always end up being drawn back into illusion and into some form of pain.

On this level, the author also shows you how not to make that which is false in you into a self and into a personal problem, for that is how the false perpetuates itself. On another level, the book speaks of a profound transformation of human consciousness — not as a distant future possibility, but available now no matter who or where you are. You are shown how to free yourself from enslavement to the mind, enter into this enlightened state of consciousness and sustain it in everyday life.

On this level of the book, the words are not always concerned with information, but often designed to draw you into this new consciousness as you read. Again and again, the Author endeavors to take you with him into that timeless state of intense conscious presence in the Now, so as to give you a taste of enlightenment. Until you are able to experience consciousness, you may find those passages somewhat repetitive.

As soon as you do, however, you will realize that they contain a great deal of spiritual power, and they may become for you the most rewarding parts of the book. Moreover, since every person carries the seed of enlightenment within, the knower within you who dwells behind the thinker is being addresses in the book, the deeper self that immediately recognizes spiritual truth, resonates with it, and gains strength from it.

This book is recommended for your personal development and motivation to actively navigate your life which consequently develop every area of your life.

THE PRISION WITHIN

THE PRISION WITHIN

There is a prison that has an inmate population in the billions. It’s a prison without walls, without barbed wire, without guards and without any physical barrier. But it is the most effective prison I the whole world. Few escape it, but those who do find real and lasting freedom.

That prison is in our minds. It is a prison that holds back our initiative, our talent, our ability to express ourselves and, most of all, it holds back the fulfillment of our full potential as human beings.

That prison is fear. Our lives today are controlled by fear more than we know. Fear controls the choices we make, our actions, our habits and even our destinies. Fear has become one of the greatest threats to humanity in this day in its many forms. Terrorism has become the pinnacle of fear worldwide. Recent events in the world have shown how fear can drive even those that are powerful to behave desperately and inhumanely. But the effect of fear on our personal lives is more damaging that any terrorist can ever hope to achieve. Fear of life prevents most of us from living.

Fear of life? Yes. “Too many people are thinking of security instead of opportunity. They seem to be more afraid of life than death.” This observation was made by James F. Bymes.

The fear of taking risks is one that few people are able to overcome. Risk is the potential harm that may arise from some present process or from some future event. In every area of life risk-taking is a necessary thing. If you propose marriage to someone you have to take the risk that they may say n. If you are in a race you have to take the risk that you may lose miserably. If you want to live life to its fullest you have to take the risk of failure. As Dorothy Thompson said: “Only when we are no longer afraid do we begin to live.”

Fear will paralyse you if you do not deal with it. It will absolutely stop you from living a life that you desire. Recognise it. Conquer it.

 

© Power Principles for Fearless & Abundant Living by Dr. Moses Simuyemba

You need this Principle to discover your purpose and live a productive life.

You need this Principle to discover your purpose and live a productive life.

You need to read this if you seek to discover your purpose and be more productive…

LAMP principle is an effective set of techniques to help people live a purposeful and productive life.

The greatest achievement of life is to understand exactly what your purpose is, in this world of so many controversies, news, stories, lifestyles and all. It is amazing to realize that each person has a specific purpose tasked by the Universe. The most successful people in this world have one thing in common, they all live a purposeful life. They discovered why they exist, live that purpose which obviously adds meaning and significance to their lives. This gives them happiness, fulfillment, fame, riches and all the amazing things  the world can offer. To be like or better than that icon, great leader, business tycoon, legend, you have always adored, you need to live a purposeful life.

It is one thing to have a purpose, it is another (which is the most vital) to discover the purpose. When we mention purpose, it simply means the reason of your existence, your responsibilities, the role you exist to play to complete the circle of the universe. Discovering our purpose can seem herculean but nothing is sweeter and more interesting than living a life that’s dedicated to understanding why we breathe, why we were born and why we exist.

All you need to know is the How! Many of us often consciously and unconsciously question ourselves, what is my purpose? How do I discover my purpose? All these questions are very vital, more vital than life itself. If you live and there is no purpose for such life, the feeling is synonymous to being dead because you are overwhelmed with the feeling of emptiness that you feel lifeless, useless and tired all the time.

This usually is a major causal factor of mental distress and in fact physical sickness. Read on to understand more on how you can discover your purpose, develop yourself and be more productive.

The rapid way to discover your purpose and live a  more productive life is through adopting the following techniques that have been summarized to be LAMP.

1. Learning: As stated earlier, it seems difficult discovering who you are and your purpose because you don’t know how to. First step is reading this present blog. Learning is an endless process. Therefore don’t limit your learning to four walls of classes, exam preparations, school books etc. Read widely, be open minded, explore various fields, focus on yourself and decide what captures your interests more. Read self development books, attend seminars, speak to learned people, psychologists and others who you know are capable of impacting unto you a meaningful knowledge. Learn from others’ stories and experiences to help you easily navigate your journey too. Each person’s journey differs but it often requires same attitude to discover and embark on the journey.

2. Application: Knowledge without an evidence of it is useless and in fact detrimental. Every knowledge holds a space in the mind, if not put into fruitful use, it takes up the space for no reason and more painfully it causes anxiety. The reason is that your whole body has received a signal of a significant information but if you don’t put it to use then your neural system reacts negatively to the entire information. Like punishing you for knowing the right thing but not doing it. Reading a book on how to cook will not automatically imbibe the skills in you, until you apply the information. You get your hands on the kitchen utensils and food stuffs then make efforts to actually cook.

Once you learn that it is important to read to learn, you won’t magically learn until you adopt the knowledge by actually reading. If you learn that over thinking leads to anxiety, you will get rid of anxiety only if you adopt the knowledge and stay away from over thinking. You must apply the knowledge, practically adopt the principles and rules then you will observe progress. You can’t be a millionaire just by reading millionaire mindset book until you act out the knowledge. Let there be strong mutual connection between your sensory and motor system. Motor system is responsible for practical actions, body movements while sensory system is concerned with the input, taking in the information. As stated, its not enough to take in the information, its more important to act out the information.

Complement your learning with the application of the information then you will surely experience rapid progress and abundant success…Rukayyah Rahman

3.Mindfulness: This is very important and cuts across the whole process, because it symbolizes your keen attention, full concentration and focus. We will discuss more on mindfulness in one of our subsequent posts. But we will briefly discuss it here to make the point concerning how to be more productive. Once you are mindful, you are more responsive and energetic. Your body, mind and soul are awakened and ready to receive divine messages from the Universe. At this stage, you will be compelled to do only what is right and relevant. You will be able to listen and yield to the voice of the soul which has all the information we need to grow as human beings and of course discover our purpose and be more productive. It resonates our soul with the Universe. It gives us peace and improve our memory system. Being mindful fuels our passion, inspires us more to act now! There is a sense of urgency and responsibility when we are mindful.  We are able to set our goals, plan effectively and consistently, consequently we get to fulfill our purposes upon discovery of the purposes.

4. Practice: This is similar to applying the knowledge mentioned above but a bit more. Here, you have to be steady with the principle 2 which is applying your knowledge to real life situations. If you read about how to improve your memory system, your memory system will get improved only when you apply the knowledge, not just once but continuously till you master it and it has become a habit. It is stated that it takes 21 days to form a particular habit so this is a bonus knowledge, that is, you have to keep practising for a couple of days, your brain adjusts to this reality and you are conditioned to keep up with the habits. All of our behaviors today were formed through conditioning and persistent practice. We can get rid of all unfavorable attitudes, all we need is mindfulness, determination and constant practice. With the right knowledge and constant practice you will be more productive and continue to gradually uncover and live your purpose.

You need to understand that its a gradual process, the discovery and fulfillment are a lifetime journey but you need to ensure at every phase there is a fruitful outcome, hold on, keep it up, be fierce and fearless, you will keep growing and you will continue to progress in your journey of your discovery and achievements. LAMP is the secret of all the great leaders. They keep learning, apply their knowledge, adopt mindfulness and continue practising by repeating the cycle over and over again.

Currently we are working on a project called PLACY Club where we gather secondary school students to imbibe in them effective leadership qualities, train them to discover and develop their potentials and talent to be more productive and become great leaders. This also involves exploiting their potentials, engaging them in various services to facilitate sustainable community and national development.

Interviewer: Thank you. Please can you share with us your favorite motivational words?

Rukayya: (Smiles) Well, I have many, I will share the ones that come to mind at the moment. The most beautiful thing in life is to be the reason for others’ happiness and smiles. Being selfless is the fastest road to greatness.  Be the change you like to observe in the world, life is a reflection of who you are. Keep learning to keep soaring. You will face obstacles but they are voices of the divine telling you to keep moving ‘cos you’re almost there at the beautiful destination destined for the fearless and courageous ones like you. We all have a purpose to fulfill until we discover and fulfill it, before we experience absolute bliss and peace we wholeheartedly crave. I try to live these words, walk my talks and nothing pacifies me more. More so preaching what I practise is easier than practising what I preach, therefore it is amazing that my actions match with my words and that inspires constructive changes in other people as well. Oops! Sorry, I had to say this much (smiles)

 

 

INSPIRING SELF-DEVELOPMENT COACHING BY DR ABDULRAZAQ ONIYE (FROM UNIVERSITY OF ILORIN) AT PROINSAFE LAUNCHING EVENT

INSPIRING SELF-DEVELOPMENT COACHING BY DR ABDULRAZAQ ONIYE (FROM UNIVERSITY OF ILORIN) AT PROINSAFE LAUNCHING EVENT

INSPIRING SELF-DEVELOPMENT COACHING BY DR ABDULRAZAQ ONIYE (FROM UNIVERSITY OF ILORIN) AT PROINSAFE LAUNCHING EVENT

Permit me to stand on the well established protocol, I greet ProInSafe team, the distinguished guests and all the people that are seated here today. Good evening to everyone.  I am invited to discuss self-development. Self development basically helps us to become more aware of our talents, potentials and help to bring to the fore issue of human capital development. This awareness facilitates employability and ensures that we are able to contribute to personal and national development.

Self-development involves steps taken to discover/identify your talents, strengths and other attributes that will help you to fulfil your purpose in this life because obviously we all are existing to fulfil certain purpose. Many people are unable to progress in life because of their inability to identify their talents, some people are gifted in writing, some have oratory power, when they talk you are mesmerized and amazed.

You must identify various areas you are talented, is it writing, statistics, entrepreneurship, sport, speaking etc. Self development implies you know your talents.  Closely related to that is the issue of potential, we all do not have the same potentials. That’s why some people thrive in a particular field of endeavors and others do not. That is why today some people going to school and always fail, because they do not necessarily have business in the academic field they are studying, everyone wants to attain first, second, third degrees because others are doing that when the person is meant to focus on entrepreneurship. As a result he will be wasting his resources; time, money and energy at school and they will be marking him there as a failure.

Some people have failed jamb consecutively that they can already predict jamb questions. These people can easily tell that these questions were asked three years ago and won’t be set until next year. The reason for this is because they have written jambs so many times but they keep failing, or maybe they did pass but didn’t just gain admission into the university, meanwhile they were so determined to go to university not so that they can gain advanced knowledge to be productive but because of societal expectations.

Whereas if such person had discovered his/her potential, he/she would not have so much stressful experience. Some students spend more fruitless years than expected in school or in a particular learning institute because they are yet to discover their talents. They are then perceived as failures by people around them. Some people are destined to be in school, attain all forms of degrees yet they hardly have something valuable to show for it simply because they are not self-developed. Some people only stick to the information taught in school, this way, they do not meet up with standards. We must have those attributes that reflect self development to benefit more from all forms of education we acquire. Some people are punctual and faithful to their studies but still do not perform optimally as a result of lack of self-development.

Self development implies that you just a take a step, lay a significant foundation (discover your potentials) for further development, continue to improve yourself and  progress to be the best you can be. Not all of us must attain second degrees, we may all have first degrees because obviously education is required to fully operate in the society, but not all of us will get second degrees. And if we all obtain second degree, all of us won’t obtain doctorate degree. The most important thing is to discover the innate potentials, that’s very crucial to the issue of self-development. I commend the organizers of this program for coming up with such crucial topic; self-development. Nigeria has many problems because many people within the country are not self-developed.

The second thing to discuss is “what potentials have you?” You need to think about how you will develop your potentials to be able to establish an organization of your own so that you can employ others. Don’t think just about being employed. Imagine everyone thinks of being employed, that means we will have no employers, no organization, no investment, how do we then work to survive? Therefore to sustain the economy of the country, more people must think about creating employment and not just about being employed.

In those days, we had just University or Ilorin in Kwara state, now there are more than four universities within Kwara state. More potential employees are being created, this is a reason each person must be well developed to be self-reliant, self employed and also provide opportunities for others to be employed. In addition, technological advancement today is getting people out of jobs, it is contributing to reduction in the need for human labor, that is, job vacancies are very few.

In those days it would take about few days before getting pictures from photographers, they will give you the negative copies and ask you to later come back for the hard copy. But now all those things have gone into extinction, photographers nowadays have very few or no room for employment. In those days, post office was very relevant because people would post letters to communicate with their loved ones that are distant. The post office hardly matters anymore upon the arrival of handsets, laptops etc. which means many people working there must have lost their jobs. In fact, motor parks do not get enough passengers anymore relative to those days because people can easily communicate (have meetings etc) through mobile phones, and other communication gadgets instead of travelling to places.

Instead of taking taxi to your aunt’s place, you can easily make a phone call of just 5 naira to confirm if she’s around, if she says no, you will save up the money (about 50 or 100 naira) and time to go to her house and still be disappointed by her absence. All these innovations are evidence of some people’s self development. We can see the latter is very vital to the community, societal and national development.

We have discussed talents, potentials, acquisition and diversification. Acquisition is going to school to learn how to read, write, learn numeracy, and acquire other basic knowledge required to fit into the society. The beginning of self development is learning how to diversify. Diversification involves acquiring and developing your skills and potentials. Which implies that today you cannot rejoice over having just a skill, things are changing, the world is evolving. If you only have certificate without acquiring another relevant skill, if the field you have its certificate becomes redundant, then count yourself jobless. If you have no skill you can sell, what can employers buy from you. So you need to diversify.

Now I will be rounding up by mentioning some tips for your self-development. To be self-developed we need to do a number of things some of which include:

  1. You must ensure that you are focused on self-improvement. Improve yourself, read outside classroom. Don’t limit your knowledge to what you are taught by your teachers/lecturers.
  2. Individual Growth: If you have first degree, be focused on acquiring a skill relevant to developing your potentials. Note that, you need to consider your potentials before acquiring a skill. If you don’t have the potential, you will be tagged a failure during the course of the training and after the training.
  3. Team work: I like the drama presented by the youngsters (PLACY Club members), the young girl who was the business woman was selling on her own but was making very low sales, by the time she exchanged ideas with the other young boy (who was the distributor), she learned some tactics which helped to grow her business. If you are doing it all alone without a team work and input of other people, you will experience low or no progress. You must learn to do team work.
  4. You must be productive. This is internet era, when you go online be focused on your needs and how you can use the internet to gratify your needs. If you are going online to search for a topic, do just that to the exclusion of everything else. Don’t be distracted by Facebook. If you did not go online to browse Instagram, don’t let Instagram distract you. If you are not online to tweet, don’t let twitter distract you. If you are not focused, you can be online for 8 hours, wasting your MB, your time and energy without achieving a significant goal. You will start checking your social media messages, surfing the net etc and you will still appear busy, busy doing nothing. Be focused, be determined, be mindful and be proactive
  5. Giving Back: A self-developed person must learn to give back to the society. That is the time to reflect your self development, a self developed person is not just busy with him/herself alone. Your self development should inspire you to engage in one or two projects that can benefit the life of others. Like this ProInSafe seminar, everyone here today paid no entrance fee before they can get free access to valuable lectures and information necessary to develop them psychologically and to develop their skills. Certainly acquiring and applying these skills will help them to be more productive. Therefore ProInSafe team has benefited the lives of people here today. That is the way to go as self developed individuals.
  6. Develop your communication skills: To go far in life you must work on your communication skills. Some people are enriched with sound knowledge and talents but they lack expression. They lack quality and meaningful expression. Some people are not welcomed at official meetings because of their lack of presentation despite their rich knowledge and experience. Their knowledge is wasteful and not yet adequate because they have not acquired the knowledge and skills of effective communication. Don’t beat about the bush, be detailed but precise. Improve on your communication skills.
  7. You need to work on your relationship: Some of us have good networks but we don’t exploit them fruitfully. Some people went to school, they made friends but don’t know the value of friendship. Some of your classmates are daughters and sons to valuable people yet you cannot tap into these resources. You have hundreds of friends on social media who are adding no value to you. Ask yourself, how many of your acquaintances can be helpful/useful in reaching your own destination. Work on your network, constructive ones. That’s what I mean by building your relationships.
  8. Be a leader of yourself: You need to be a good follower to be a good leader. Learn to control yourself and be disciplined that when you set out your goals you commit yourself to the achievement of those goals. Learn to obey and believe in yourself.
  9. Be Creative : You need to be creative in the course of developing yourself. While developing yourself, your creativity is improved. Innovation is important in this era. Some people are not better than you but they are well packaged. Some people sell locust beans, package it well and transport to other states. If you sell good products but your business lacks quality packaging, very few people or no one will patronize you. Some people package grounded pepper, garri etc and make greater sales compare to their competitors who do not package as such. Packaging is very key to someone who is intentional about self-development.
  10. Learn to cope with failure: Always understand that Rome was not built in a day. Look at this bulb (electricity) we all are benefiting from today was developed by a man, who failed about  a thousand times. It was after he tried a thousandth time that he was able to develop an inferior kind of bulb. The pioneering bulb has gone through so many alterations before we have nice modern bulb of today. Today we are using phones which are forms of computers, the very first set of computers are gigantic and are very limited and restricted, now we have very nice laptops, desktops etc. The first set of phones were also very huge (especially 3310 models of phones) that they tagged them “owo n ro mi” (Yoruba words for my hands ache) implying how big the phones were at the time. If you want to live and not make mistakes, it means you are not trying to be self-developed, nor are you making an impact, you are not even working nor taking any significant step at all.

Thank you!

Title: Standard Road to Success

A business woman was at her store and she looked all depressed. One of her distributors went to get more goods.

The distributor: Good day ma.

Business Woman: Welcome, how are you doing?

The distributor: (Looks excited) I am very fine, and you?

Business woman: (sighs) I am alive o.

The distributor: Madam, what is wrong with you?  You don’t look okay.

Business woman: I cannot be okay when I am barely making sales. Everything is dry. It amazes me that you come here so often to get goods. In fact, you are the only distributor who’s been patronizing me lately which explains that only you have been making a great deal of sales. (She moves closer to him and whispers)Tell me, what is the secret? What are you doing differently that some of us are not doing?

The distributor: (Smiles) It’s very simple ma. Didn’t you register your business at all?

Business woman: (Gave disappointment gestures) Mmm. I did, but obviously there is nothing to show for it. It was just normal required registration, I guess.

The distributor: You have not heard about ProInSafe?

Business woman: Pro…ProInSafe? Not really.

The distributor: (laughs)  Actually, I have been making abundant sales ever since I registered with ProInSafe. I must tell you that I am even here for more goods. ProInSafe has been so helpful in increasing my patronage because I engage in digital marketing, therefore, with ProInSafe it has been very easy to convince online consumers of my credibility. (Phone rings) Hello Iya konko, ohhhkay, I will be back in a jiffy. Please attend to all my customers, I must not lose any of them. I am at madam’s shop to get more stock.

Business Woman: (Adjusts her sitting posture and pays keen attention to him) Please tell me more. What is this ProInSafe all about?

The distributor: (smiles) ProInSafe is fully known as Promoting Internet Safety. That is basically what the organization is all about. ProInSafe exists to promote cyber security, provide job opportunities, promote credible businesses and empower the youths. ProInSafe is indeed tested and trusted! Go to www.proinsafe.com to register your business in order to boost your sales and also to support their vision to promote cyber security and foster socio-economic development of the country.

Business Woman: Ahh. This sounds so interesting but I am very broke at the moment. I don’t think I can afford this now. (she looks gloomy)

The distributor: You are telling me you cannot spare less than 4000 naira to grow your business?

Business woman: (Apparently shocked) Are you serious? I thought you would mention an amount that is between 20-50k or more.

The distributor: Not at all. In fact ProInSafe has made me realize that so many people actually require our products, but our low patronage is usually as a result of less advertisement and lack of trusts by consumers. ProInSafe has come to resolve such entrepreneurial issues by helping all entrepreneurs with online presence to make higher sales and maximize their profits. ProInSafe is virtually an an online business regulatory organization. They are here to encourage entrepreneurship and accelerate socio-economic development of the country. They also render affordable advertisement, business consultancy and other relevant cyber security services.

The business woman was indeed amazed by this great innovative opportunity. She asked for the organization’s contact details. The distributor gave it to her and she immediately took an excuse to contact ProInSafe Organization.

The next scene showed two friends, one of the friends who was a PLACY club member was on his way back from a sport competition. He met his friend who asked where he was coming from.

Bayo and Agboola at PLACY Club Play

Bayo: Hey friend! How are you?

Agboola: I am good. What’s up? Where are you coming from with all these sport kits?

Bayo: I am just returning from a sport competition organized by PLACY club program.

Agoola: What is that? Could you please give more details?

Bayo: PLACY Club is fully known as ProInSafe Leadership And Community Youth Club. It is one of the projects of ProInSafe Empowerment Projects  created for secondary schools, the club is dedicated to discovering and developing youths’ potentials and exploiting the potentials to encourage innovations, create great leader and facilitate community development. We engage in various training sessions, programs and community development services to achieve our goals.

Agboola: That’s fantastic! No wonder you are now more mature and resourceful. Wait! I saw a billboard of a beautiful art work, with the words PLACY Club on it, along Ibrahim street over there (points to the right side of the road) , are you guys responsible for that?

Bayo: Yes. Some of the students made that under the supervision of an artist. We create many things and even help respective schools to meet their needs.

Agboola showed interest and Bayo asked him to come to their next conference to meet with the Club Team. They walked along the same path and continued to discuss PLACY Club.

 

THE END!

PLACY Club Ag President-AbdulQuadir translating Youths are the Fruits Poem.

Translation 

The world will be a great place but you need to train your children properly. Give them good advice, create time for them, invest in them, Nigeria is suffering because the leader’s today lack effective nurturance.

Make sure for children are equipped with knowledge and experience to function optimally, socially, mentally, academically and physically.

The advanced countries are ahead because their children are well developed. They get quality education and are given opportunities to exploit their talent and potentials.

Spending time at wedding occasion is pleasant but you need to get your priorities right. Children can change the world for the better, starting from Nigeria but what we seek is your attention, encouraging words, inspirational contents and good behavioral modification system. Teachers are trying, you parent are doing your best, but we need you to focus more on being the better best to raise successful children, help us to form good habits, don’t say bad words on us. We will make you proud soon. But only if you believe in us and nurture us to great standards.

All thanks to PLACY Club team who are willing to support the parents and teachers to help each child to actualize his/her potentials. Experience in PLACY club will help us become better individuals, great leaders and successful youths and adults.

Thank you everyone we wish you happiness, wealth, success and peace in all your endeavors including parenthood.

Remember we receive what we give, we give what we receive. The world is round. Youths, you need to learn how to strive in order  to thrive!

Three most valuable ingredients for success.

Three most valuable ingredients for success.

 If you desire success, this is a must read!

Faith and Passion are prerequisites for success. These two initiate and fuel your courage, which consequently drive your actions.

How courageous  and fearless you are depend on how passionate and faithful you are. ~Rukayyah Rahman

Once you believe in what you see (faith), the divine energy (passion) needed to work for it is automatically activated. Subsequently you feel the strong readiness to act and do whatever it takes to achieve the dream/goal. Once you think it and strongly believe it, you have created it, it is already existing, all you need do is to work, take right actions to move it from the abstract form of existence and then manifest it so you start living the dreams and benefitting the world with it.

You don’t need to know all the directions at once, as you proceed, the path becomes clearer and gradually the awareness is continually unfolded, for you to know what to do next and of course to know what not to do.

All directions and actions needed to manifest  that beautiful dream/vision of yours are guided by your passion, courage and faith. If you truly desire success, these three ingredients must exist.

Thank you for reading but we will appreciate you more if you always apply the knowledge you gain from our blog. It will illuminate you beyond imagination.

Always stay conscious and happy!
