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.

 

Why it is important for Learners in School and every Youth to join PLACY CLUB

Why it is important for Learners in School and every Youth to join PLACY CLUB

 

ProInSafe Leadership And Community Leaders Youths (PLACY) Club is created to equip Nigerians with essential resources needed to be productive hence facilitate community development and national growth.

The PLACY Club propel learner  to create opportunities for themselves and their community; to make them become self reliant, self-employed and self-actualized. Every learner has potential to be an expert at a particular field. Everyone has a purpose to fulfill and fulfilling this purpose is the gateway to our success and happiness.

To fulfil our purpose requires JUST A THING, this thing is a form of life long exercise which is SELF DISCOVERY.

Self Discovery is the ability to understand one’s weaknesses, strengths, potentials and talents, it is the awareness of our thoughts, feelings and actions that make us who we are. Discovering who we are help us to strengthen our weaknesses, exploit our strengths positively, develop our potentials and talents in order to serve and uplift the humanity. We get to identify our uniqueness and difference and this helps us to stand out in an amazing way.

Human beings co-exist and this social aspect of us can be used to transform  our country, Nigeria to move from being a developing country to be a developed country. Other countries are developed out of the endless efforts of the people of such countries to discover themselves which always create passions for solving certain problems of their countries. Solving this problem along the line earn them millions and billions of naira for example, Bill Gates, Mark Zuckerberg, Ben Carson, Steve Jobs, Denzel Washington etc.

It is essential for every youth to discover themselves and in the process unlearn unhelpful behavioral patterns as this helps them to easily adopt values and attitudes necessary to become great leaders. A good leader must uphold integrity and be concerned about the welfare of the people around him/her. Doing this will continue to uplift the leader and the affiliated society.

To be a great leader, one must possess right and constructive knowledge and skills. In a bid to make youths great leaders, PLACY club came into existence.  This program exists mainly to mentor and guide youths to drive positive social change in their communities. This is through acquiring and sharing knowledge, skills and experiences and receiving full supports relevant to achieving these SDGs:

1: No Poverty

2: Zero Hunger

3: Good Health and Well-being

4: Quality Education

5: Gender Equality

6: Clean Water and Sanitation

7: Industry, Innovation and Infrastructure

8: Reduced Inequality

9: Sustainable Cities and Communities

10: Peace and Justice Strong Institutions

11: Partnerships to achieve the Goal

Nigeria will rapidly develop only through sustainable innovations, productive actions and effective leadership. PLACY club is all about empowering/inspiring youths to innovate, act and lead in such a way that facilitates community development and national growth.

Many parents, guardians, and students themselves do not understand the importance of extracurricular activities. Teachers in many schools have had to convince some parents and guardians to permit their children to participate in extracurricular activities. This is because the parents feel that those afterschool activities distract them from their studies, or caused them to get home late. Some students also feel that they do not need the activities, all they need is to concentrate on their books.

This notion couldn’t be any more untrue. Co-curricular activities are just as important as academics. They both complement each other to develop a well-rounded student with more social skills than one who only concentrates on their books. Education should go beyond the four classroom walls; it should be more than just books.

Our motto, “Passion ‘n’ Action” guides our  to help youths discover and fuel their passions which will energize them to take actions; solve specific problems in their neighboring environments for the benefits of all. PLACY brings about opportunities for every youth to thrive because it  values and helps the youths value their potentials and make the most of it! PLACY Club can equip you with the skills you need to succeed after school, such as leadership skills, the ability to work in a team, prioritizing tasks, and managing your time.

To CREATE OPPORTUNITIES simply means to be a PROBLEM SOLVER or a COMMUNITY DEVELOPER. Most times, this earn you a huge sum of money, income and all, sometimes it doesn’t. But surely it gives you FULFILMENT and that’s SUCCESS in its true definition and entire essence.

PLACY Club benefits to Learner in School

Sports most often have the effect of fostering strong team-building skills and training students in holding long-term goals.

 

  1. Better time management Skills.

Such a learner is less likely to procrastinate.

  1. Exploration of interests.

  1. Learn New and Useful Skills.

Learner  learn new skills that are useful in their school life and day-to-day activities. Students learn skills such as teamwork, better social skills, and critical thinking.

Personal Development (Passions and Ambition Pursuing)

Personal Development (Passions and Ambition Pursuing)

Personal Development is the foundation upon which every form of development (social, economic, community, national…) is built. You have to build a strong foundation to experience consistent progress and development. _RARS

Personal development is a stage by stage process everyone must go through alone if you want to feel achieved. Everyone has their own unique ways of going through this development but if we are to follow the Maslow’s hierarchy of needs, your physiological needs come first (which are the basic needs of food, water, shelter, oxygen, sex, etc.).

Next up is your safety needs (which involves feeling safe from potentially dangerous physical and psychological situations). Shelter  is one of the vital needs of safety. You must also have clothes and other needs that give you sense of security. You need to improve your emotional intelligence by practising mindfulness, getting rid of unpleasant thoughts, focusing more on positive thoughts and adopting healthy defense mechanisms. You also need to gain more effective coping mechanisms skills necessary for dealing with stress. Don’t wait til you are totally depressed before you reach out for psychological intervention. Take care of your inner being by surrounding yourself with positive people, books and learning to spend quality times with your selg meditating and reflecting. This helps you to discover your strengths and weaknesses. Knowing your weaknesses helps you to build more on your strength which will prevent you from being wasted by your weaknesses.

The third one is your need for love and belongingness (which revolves around affiliation, feeling part of a family/society, giving and receiving trust, acceptance, affection and love, etc). You must learn to give and embrace love. Give love by saying kind words to others, smile and just make others feel what you wish to feel. You are able to embrace love when you give it because while giving you are attracting situations and people that will give you the same feeling of love and affections. Don’t be too hard on yourself, don’t fall into the deceptive convention that trauma must follow every pain. Every past experience exists to teach you lessons you will need to keep surviving until you acquire more lessons. Life is all about learning and unlearning. No bad experience should teach you cruelty therefore at every point in time you must learn to care about the feelings of others. That explains you are giving affections and remember we only give things we have even though we think we don’t have them. You are not to solely rely on others for your happiness but ensure that you give that quality attention, be responsible for that happy feelings of others, you will feel more happiness yourself.

The fourth one is the esteem needs (which includes feeling competent, self esteem & self respect, the respect of others, family, at work, etc). When you have optimally met the physiological needs, safety needs and social needs, trust me you automatically feel happy, contented, fulfilled, energized and competent. You feel strong and courageous that you believe there is nothing beyond your power and ability, This is not ostentation at all, it is about naturally carrying yourself with grace and reflecting nobility. You are at peace within therefore you carry along the vibe everywhere you go. Inability to fulfill some of the needs often result into mental distress and social dysfunctions, Nevertheless the inner conflicts that resulted from inability to gratify the previous needs can be alleviated through mental health intervention such as psychotherapy, hypnosis, cognitive-behavioral therapy etc.

The last one is self-actualization (which is reaching one’s full potential and becoming everything one is capable of becoming). Once you gratify all of the previous needs, you progressively triumph in life. You are able to carefully set goals and achieve them. You set your standards and live life according to your terms without being pressured by the noise of the society. Success for everyone is relative and this stage defines it better. A billionnaire is very happy over his accomplishment, someone who has a store is as well very pleased at his or her own accomplishment. Goals are different, means of achieving them are different however one common thing will be the ability to achieve the goals and be filled with a genuine feeling of fulfillment and accomplishment and this is the part we can point out that each person has a purpose to fulfill, fulfilling the purposes is all that makes an individual experience abundant happiness and peace.

“Every creature lives to serve a purpose, you feel pains because you have not discovered yourself nor your purpose. To live a happy life, you need to uncover your cover, understand the deep meaning of life which is proportional to discovering yourself and the Infinite Being known as God. Our success and happiness depend largely on our level of awareness of the Creator”_The Universe.

Now let’s talk about Passion and Ambition.

Steve Jobs once said, “people with passion can change the world for the better”.

When I say passion, I mean the “strong feeling of enthusiasm or excitement for something or about doing something” – Merriam-Webster Dictionary.

Ambition on the other hand is something that a person hopes to do or achieve. You can always develop your passion and turn it into an ambition but first, you need to:

Understand yourself, ask yourself questions like “WHO AM I?”,” WHAT EXCITES ME?”, “WHAT DO I WANT?”, “WHAT DO I NEED?”, etc. (It is important to know the difference between what you want and what you need.)

You also need to know the things you are not comfortable with – if something doesn’t settle right with you, find another. If you continue on a path with little or no comfort, you might end up being miserable about it.

Find something you are passionate about and make it your ambition. Do this with confidence because without confidence how will you show people who you are and what you can do?

Pursuing and achieving this will make you self-actualized which is a key part of development. Thank you for reading, to engage in exercises that will help to discover and develop yourself. You should  join ProInSafe Leadership And Community Youth (PLACY) Club. Good decision for taking your time to read this information, do yourself more favor of striving to apply the knowledge you have gained from here.

 

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.

Best solution to socio-economic problems in Nigeria

Best solution to socio-economic problems in Nigeria

Solution To The Socio-Economic Problems in Nigeria.

  • Quality Education
  • Adequate Health Facility
  • Effective Leadership
  • Investments! Investments!! More Investments!!!

Quality Education
Education basically involves acquiring knowledge and skills necessary to refine our potentials. Everyone has natural tendencies however quality education helps individuals to exploit these abilities productively. For example, an individual with abilities to make speech will be able to do after learning language, grammar etc.

Education is Education, in fact every form of education must meet the standard of Quality Education. Therefore in this article, when we mention Education, we mean it to be a quality one.

Quality Education simply means effective aqusition of right knowledge and skills that effects self-growth and community development. Right knowledge symbolizes adequate information capable of transformation, that is, the information acquired through education should compel individuals to replace FAULTY cognition (thoughts, beliefs, memories, attitudes, perceptions) and behavioral patterns with PRODUCTIVE cognition (beliefs, perceptions, attitudes, thoughts) and behavioural patterns (actions).

As a saying goes, “what we think, we become.” This simply explains that our thoughts become our feelings which subsequently form our actions. Every information we assimilate must fill our minds with useful thoughts and relevant values necessary to uplift the learner and the society.

Education expunges ignorance, keeps us informed thereby prevents deformation. An individual with talents or potentials will remain incapable or worse still become bad without education to guide and regulate his or her mental functioning.

For example, while at a prison for community development service, it was observed that many of the inmates demonstrated abilities and intelligence but apparently only needed right input from the environment to help them harness their abilities productively.

Education helps us to acquire both basic and secondary knowledge or skills and it can be acquired through various means, as we must note that education goes far beyond the four walls of classes.

We get education at home, in school, learning centres, books, movies, videos, seminars, websites etc., and education involves learning particular subjects, vocational skills, sport skills, computer skills,etc etc

Education because it abolishes ignorance has contributed significantly to reducing many social problems including racism, prejudice, etc., which are caused by human irrational thoughts and attitudes.

We are getting educated whenever we involve in any activity that effect relatively enduring change in our behaviours, which can be conceptualized as learning. We need to learn various things and at various stages of life. Therefore education enables adaptation to our environment.

There are many benefits of education, some of which include:

  • It enhances mental, physical, social and spiritual functioning
  • Quality education breeds quality life
  • It promotes our wellbeing by keeping us informed on what to do and what to stop doing to maintain and improve our health
  • It facilities economic, social, and community development.
  • It enhances our performances, having adequate information compels us to perform effectitvely
  • It helps to actualize our potentials, education equips us with cognitive resources needed to engage in significant activities that provide fulfillment.
  • It helps provide answers to questions and solutions to problem especially through science.
  • It basically facilitate human affiliations, hence it promotes peace and unity.

However everything with a pro has a con. There is no bad to education but on the usage of it. Many people harness the information they have to cause harm to the society. For example, hacking into someone else’s accounts, internet fraud, etc. This however is downplayed when people in the course of learning also receive essential guide and information on how to constructively harness the information they have and on how to benefit the world with their knowledge and skills rather than to cause destructions.

Education is extremely vital by all indications, it raises people’s consciousness about various aspects of the world. With this, ignorance is eradicated hence the room for improvement and development is created. It purges out stereotypes, prejudice, criminal intents and discrimination which have always caused major setbacks in the society. The root of every conflicts lies in the oversimplified beliefs we hold about the “out-group.” (Basheera Ibrahim 2016)

Acquisition of knowledge instill fortitude and diplomacy within people. It helps us to identify a problem and work to discover and proffer a solution to such problem, which is a significant impetus for the evolvement of a community and a country.

Adequate Health Facility
To perform effectively, one must have sound health. Health they say, is wealth. Both physiological and psychological are equally vital to optimal functioning of every human being.

The Government has the responsibility to develop the available health facilities, provide necessary resources and create (and also provide support for creations of) more health facilities in both rural and urban areas. Notable number of standard rehabilitational centres and mental health facilities must be constructed as well. In fact, every hospital must integrate the department of mental health services. This is very vital. It is required to improve the quality of lives and to uplift the society.

Many physical illnesses are triggered by psychological dysfunctions, many individuals are mentally down either they are depressed or suffer from another psychological impairment, we have lost some othersbto suicide. The latter and the aforementioned conditions are the result of psychological dysfunctions. To resolve many societal problems, the cognition’s of the people must be improved, and a mental health worker does it better.

Access to mental health facilities coupled with medical health facilities including and sensitization about mental health will effect better thought processes in people and productive actions, which consequently will foster social change, to reflect sustainable social and economic development of the country.

Effective leadership

Right leaders are significant impetus for every development observed in a society. Right leaders are not perfect but they possess majority of the vital attributes of a leader.A leader must be goal-oriented, selfless, patient, wise, flexible must have plans to achieve his or her goals, must be disciplined, have integrity and good descion making strategy. In addition to this, they must posses relevant skills and knowledge. A sound economic management graduate will function well as minister for finance than as minister for education, a person who studied psychology will perform effectively as minister for youths or minister for welfare than as commissioner/minister for transportation or whatever..

We need more people to start up businesses. Obviously entrepreneurship is getting better in Nigeria. All thanks to PMB administration. We need people to innovate ideas, replicate foreign lucrative businesses etc. Start-ups should be supported too. There should be more organizations like TOE foundation and PEP. We need to invest in education, health sectors and industries. Adequate Infrastructures should be provided to help entrepreneurs thrive. Graduates should be trained with the mindset of becoming employers rather than employees. This will encourage business start ups, innovations and business investments. And with ProInSafe businesses will rapidly grow and becomes sustainable.

If all of these are provided, Nigeria will experience rapid socio-economic development.

10 Ways to Scale a Business from Startup to a Huge Company, According to These Titans

10 Ways to Scale a Business from Startup to a Huge Company, According to These Titans

Growth tips from people who’ve done it successfully themselves.

A mastermind group for top entrepreneurs

Opinions expressed by Entrepreneur contributors are their own.

It’s one thing to start a business and another to scale it. Here are ten tips for massively growing your company from leading entrepreneurs and Advisors in The Oracles who have done just that.

1. Create a sense of urgency.

You need three things to scale a business. First, hire well so you can delegate. You’ll never scale if you have to handle everything yourself. Second, pick your battles. Don’t spend days deciding on things like the perfect logo color — your brand will evolve anyway. Focus on acquiring more and bigger customers. You want volume and margin; so start hunting for big game, not mosquitos.

Third, create urgency. Set specific timelines for action and achievements. One of the biggest mistakes businesses make is not operating with enough urgency. You’re in a marathon, but it includes many sprints. Start winning the little races and you’ll create momentum! Grant Cardone, sales expert, who has built a $750 million real estate empire, and NYT bestselling author

Melanie Perkins

Providing real value to your customers is powerful. Its importance cannot be overstated. Offering a solution to a real problem that people care about will make it much easier to run a business.

Canva is proof of this. Within the first month of launching in 2013, we had more than 50,000 people sign up to use the platform. Six years later, we’ve grown to over 15 million active monthly users across 190 countries who have created over 1 billion designs. —Melanie Perkins, co-founder and CEO of Canva, which is valued at over a billion dollars

3. Become a master at selling to your avatar.

Patch Baker

 

Many people will tell you to hyper-focus on a niche market, like health care or real estate. I disagree. Focus on the process, not the industry. For example, we identified processes for products at different price points, and for one-time services versus monthly services. Figure out a system and a checklist that works. Once you have a process for one industry, you can apply it to others. Then you can scale because your team is doing the same thing repeatedly, so they become experts.

Similarly, learn to sell multiple things to the same person. Get really good at selling to a specific client “avatar”; then you can sell other relevant services to them. Patch Baker, founder and CEO of Mobius Media Solutions; former U.S. Marine, with a mission to help people leave the military today and not feel abandoned tomorrow

4. Focus on operations, belief, and leadership.

Brandon Dawson

First, become clear on the best way to pursue the opportunity. Then, perfect your operations with measurable, systematic processes you can replicate consistently. Understand what contributes most to your impact at a granular and macro level and maximize that in everything you do. This also requires a best-in-class team and concept or product.

Pushing yourself and others to new levels requires challenging your beliefs about how big and impactful you can be. Belief energizes you and your team to work harder and smarter. It is the catalyst to thinking, doing, and being more. Belief leads to action, which leads to results; so the higher you believe, the higher you achieve.

The “secret sauce” that allows you to grow may be difficult to transfer to others; so ensure your people are aligned and committed. Your culture must embrace personal growth and transparency. Align individual team members’ successes with your objectives. Teach them to break through their limiting beliefs so you can conquer your shared mission together. Brandon Dawson (www.bdawson.com), serial entrepreneur and co-founder and CEO of Cardone Ventures; founder and CEO of Audigy ; host of “The B Dawson Show” podcast.

5. Surround yourself with others who have done it.

Josh Steinberger

Technology replaces roles we once needed to hire for and speeds up the growth process in many ways. But scaling your business in 2019 is no different fundamentally than it was 50 years ago.

My best advice is to surround yourself with others who have done it. They have already been there, made mistakes, and paid the price. At first, you will need to pay to get in the room with them. But the life-long friendships and partnerships are worth every penny. —Josh Steinberger, founder and CEO of NextGen Restoration (www.nextgenrestoration.net); principal in Driven Acquisitions, a holding company that owns and operates apartment buildings in Ohio.

6. Create an irresistible company culture.

Peter Hernandez

An amazing culture creates huge growth. Magic happens when everyone is empowered to “own” their domain. Give your team permission to experiment intentionally and celebrate innovation and collaboration. When leadership asks for coaching from the team, this 360-degree accountability builds respect and camaraderie.

Success requires physical and mental stamina, emotional intelligence, and powerful habits that are reinforced daily across the organization. Clarify why you exist as an organization, then define measurable goals to achieve that purpose. That’s how you become fiercely focused. To truly realize the power of a unified vision, translate it into a shared vocabulary like a mantra, phrase, cheer, or rallying cry. Peter Hernandez, president of the Western Region at Douglas Elliman; founder and president of Teles Properties.

7. Master traffic and sales.

Rudy Mawer

After scaling two businesses past seven figures and helping dozens of clients scale up to nine figures, I believe it comes down to your sales pipeline and traffic. If you can create an unlimited number of potential customers and convert them with a sales funnel, you can 10x your business quickly.

Focus on your team, core product, customer experience, customer service, and internal systems. Once you have those fundamentals dialed in, level up to the more advanced tasks that add up, like reducing expenses, improving the average order value and customer lifetime value, and streamlining automation. Expand horizontally with more offers and vertically by selling more of the 80/20. Rudy Mawer, founder and CEO of ROI Machines and RudyMawer.com; Facebook marketing and ad expert, who built a multimillion-dollar business by age 26.

8. Identify your focus, cadence of accountability, and process.

Sharran Srivatsaa

I grew my real estate business, Teles Properties, 10x in five years before selling it to Douglas Elliman. When I reflected afterward, I identified 37 lessons I learned, including three core pillars: singularity of focus, cadence of accountability, and good process drives good results. This is now part of the foundational formula for scaling that I teach the CEOs I mentor.

Having a singular focus is transformational because it rallies you and your team around a big aspirational goal. Ruthlessly filter everything you do with that goal in mind. Cadence of accountability is about reducing that big goal into monthly, weekly, and daily activities, then tracking your progress to drive momentum. The hustle and grind will only leave you tired and resentful. Systems drive scale, which is why a good process will always drive good results. Sharran Srivatsaa, CEO of Kingston Lane and mentor to top entrepreneurs; grew Teles Properties 10x to $3.4 billion in five years; follow Sharran on Instagram

9. Find a way for everyone to win.

Craig Handley

Our call center business was competing with another company for the same customers. Instead of looking at them as a competitor, we saw them as a partner. Our platform lacked their tools for tracking and measuring results, but our sales performance was better. So we offered to use and pay for their platform if they helped us grow our business. Together we focused on putting the client first.

By doing what was best for the client, we performed better and gave our clients better reporting tools. As a result, both companies generated more revenue than we could have separately. We grew 6,994% and went from 100 to 1,000 agents, making number 27 on the Inc. 500 list of fastest-growing companies. Going from $3 million to almost $15 million was great for us and our new partner, but we also helped our clients see unparalleled success in the U.S. Hispanic market in the process. — Craig Handley, co-founder of ListenTrust and author of “Hired to Quit, Inspired to Stay”; read more about Handley:Why These Founders Train Their Employees to Quit

10. Think big.

Keri Shull

Have a vision so big that it becomes magnetic and excites your team to help you accomplish your desired results. Then continue to evolve and think even bigger. Culture is key. Create a workplace where people have fun together, support each other, and grow together, and no one will want to leave.

Hire and fire for your vision. In the beginning, I was hiring for survival. Since then, I’ve learned that if you hire ahead of your needs, you can outpace all of the competition. This was difficult for me to learn: you must also make hard decisions along the way. Some team members who are valuable at one point in your business won’t grow enough to stay valuable as you evolve. Don’t wait to let them go. —Keri Shull, founder of the Keri Shull Team, which has sold over $2 billion in properties; co-founder of real estate coaching business HyperFast Agent; named one of America’s Best Real Estate Agents by REAL Trends; connect with Keri on Facebook

Human beings co-exist and this social aspect of us can be used to transform the country, Nigeria to move from being a developing country to be a developed country. Other countries are developed out of the endless efforts of the people of such countries to discover themselves which always create passions for solving certain problems of their countries thereby creating more investments to regulate the economy of the country. Solving this problem along the line earn them millions and billions of naira for example, Bill Gates, Mark Zuckerberg, Ben Carson etc.

To be a great leader, one must possess right and constructive knowledge and skills. PLACY Club exists to make youth great productive leaders. This program exists mainly to mentor and guide youths to drive positive social change in their communities including their relative schools. This is through acquiring and sharing knowledge, skills and experiences and receiving full supports relevant to realizing our vision.

Audience at ProInSafe Launching

Audience pays attention at the event

This gave insight into ProInSafe, its aims, objectives and services. Read the full speech-Introduction to ProInSafe as discussed by Miss Rukayyah on ProInSafe Blog. Rukayyah urged everyone to get registered with ProInSafe because it is a win-win situation. The business owners will experience higher sales in their business and will also support the vision of ProInSafe to promote internet safety. She further revealed that ProInSafe will rapidly achieve it’s goals with support from relevant governmental agencies, investors and sponsors. She ended her presentation by thanking all the people present at the occasion. Everyone appreciated her presentation and she entertained few questions. Questions and answer to these questions are found below.

  1. Can illiterates register with ProInSafe?

Ans: Definitely yes! ProInSafe in fact focuses more on helping individuals with less experience in ICT, digital marketing and the likes but who desire online presence to promote their businesses and get their business across to larger crowd. Our competent staff and experts are ready to get your business to the limelight as they continue to strategically publicize ProInSafe and carefully verify businesses. All you need do is submit vital information about you and your business for ProInSafe to validate and promote your business.

  1. What is the benefit of ProInSafe over radio advert?

Ans: The world is going digital, Nigeria is one of the countries that rates very high in internet usage. Both educated and uneducated people are on social media. People have formed the habits of going straight to Google search engine to search for particular products/services even before they ask the person that’s next to them. ProInSafe therefore helps to build a trusted online presence. ProInSafe charges very affordable fee that last forever so far the business is legitimate and you continue to operate the business. Therefore your business is always visible online that is, the advert is continously ongoing.  Registration with ProInSafe is highly recommended if you have or desire online presence, the YAS code generated is an identity of your credibility and will make your adverts through other media more effective. Internet is a very fast and effective tool to create awareness about businesses and to get access to potential consumers. Online advert often increases patronages. ProInSafe aims to enable all business owners exploit the medium to grow their businesses.

However, some people abuse these opportunities and they exploit the medium for their selfish use by scamming people. Online consumers now find it hard trusting online businesses that they lose even accurate opportunities. Despite their paranoia, some people still fall victims of scam because business scammers have crafty ways of arousing interests of consumers, by advertising fake great offers, impersonating other businesses etc. With ProInSafe, business owners easily convince consumers of their credibility.

We must understand that ProInSafe sole aim is to regulate the affairs of online businesses in order to promote internet safety, the advertisement service is only a value added service. There is Vconnect too but even this doesn’t serve our purpose, we exist to serve as online business regulatory organization, that provides all legitimate businesses an identify for their credibility and mitigate risks of business scam.

  1. ProInSafe officially started business operation in 2019, can you tell us how many businesses you have registered?

Ans: We have registered close to 12 businesses within two 6 weeks of establishment.

  1. How does your adverts get to illiterates?

Ans: Like I said earlier, all we are concerned about is the internet. Both literates and illiterates use one or more social media, therefore these people that are online will get to see the adverts of your business. In addition to that people who get information online often disseminate the information to people around them. This way information can as well be passed across to the very few people who have no online presence.

  1. How will ProInSafe achieve all its goals?

Ans: We continue to seek for support from governmental agencies, reputable entities and other investors, with adequate funds and infrastructures, competent staff/experts, strong marketing, we will get everyone (online business owners) to cooperate with us by registering to get their YAS codes. We will realize our vision, risks of business scam will be mitigated, only credible businesses will thrive more and digital marketing will be very more effective.

  1. What are your criteria for legitimate business:

Ans: The business must sell what it claims to sell, the information provided such as personal details and business information must be verifiable and confirmed by a relative/random third party to be true.

  1. What are your means of advertisement?

Ans: We post your businesses on our social media pages: twitter, instagram, facebook, LinkedIn, Whatsapp etc. We also advertise (we charge differently for this) by placing your business adverts on our website. Our website is quite trusted therefore consumers are more likely to patronize businesses found on our website.

Barr Sarafadeen Ibadan presenting chairman speech

Subsequently, the Chairman, Barrister Sarafadeen Ibrahim gave a welcome address as follow:

“I greet the distinguished guests and everyone present here today. Before I proceed I must introduce myself, I am Barrister Sarafadeen Ibrahim representing Professor Shuaib Oba AbdulRaheem. Prof would have loved to personally atrend this program but could not due to urgent national assignment. On behalf of Prof Shuaib Oba, I want to sincerely aplogize for his absence. I have with me a prepared speech to be presented by the Chairman but I will do that presently. But before I do that, it is pertinent for me to give remarks.

 

As a lawyer, I know that the present government is doing a lot to arrest cyber crimes and indeed the whole of Nigeria now is suspecting all businesses that have something to do with internet. But I want to assure this august gathering that not all businesses on internet is criminal or illegal, one of these legal online businesses is ProInSafe Organization. I want to tell us that there are a lot of legitimate opportunities on the internet that we must exploit. With ProInSafe we can safely do that.

 

In fact, I must commend the initiatives of the founders and team of ProInSafe because I know that myself, I have not gotten to the bus stop of learning. In fact, education has been described as progressive discovery of ignorance. We continue to learn as humans. The Prophet (S A W) has said it all that we learn from cradle to grave. Therefore it is not too much for us even as adults to key in into ProInSafe Organization. Once again, I congratulate the ProInSafe team and I want to encourage all of us to be partakers in the project.

 

Having said that, it gives me great pleasure to welcome you all to this occasion of the Grand Opening of an innovative Nigerian Organization, PROINSAFE. I am particularly thankful to our special guests of honour and everyone who is here today. I would like to express our sincere appreciation to every person who has supported the organization.

 

I welcome in a special way, all our clients and potential clients. We are here to formally bring to a limelight, the organization which would encourage hardworking Nigerians who are entrepreneurs and protect people from falling victim of business frauds.

 

ProInSafe is happy to have everyone on ground. It is our utmost hope and belief that everyone here shares the same vision with us as we build a Nigeria where entrepreneurs get appropriate reward for their initiative and consumers safely transact and get the real value of what they pay for.

 

With the ProInSafe initiated empowerment program, community development will be facilitated, innovations encouraged and youths will be trained to become great leaders .Finally, I want to encourage us to sit back, relax, learn and gain  maximally from this launching. Thanks and God bless you!!!”

Barr Sarafadeen and Dr Oniye

PLACY club is one of the projects of ProInSafe Empowerment Projects (PEP) initiated to support and inspire youths to be self reliant and self actualized; facilitate community development and also address root problems (such as unemployment, poverty, ignorance) of cyber-crimes. The youngsters presented a drama that exhibited the mission of ProInSafe. The youngsters include: AbdulQuadir Labaika (Ag President of PLACY club), Maryam Labaika, Olamide and Aminullahi Aliyu.

After the drama, the second guest speaker, Dr Abdulrazaq Oniye presented his speech on Self Development. He began,

Dr Oniye presents self-development coaching at ProInSafe Launching

Dr AbdulRazaq Oniye on Self-Development Coaching

“Permit me to stand on 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 talent, 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 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….”

To read the full inspirational speech on self development, go to ProInSafe Blog. Finally he thanked everyone and had his seat. Everyone was so excited that they promptly applauded him. It was obvious that everyone got enlightened by the lectures presented by both guests, while the lectures were ongoing, people apparently paid attention, locked their eyes on the lecturers, nodded, smiled, laughed at amusing words and most importantly people were seen jotting down.

Right before the commencement of lectures, office notes, pens, bottle water, soft drinks, juice and snacks were shared to people to keep them entertained. People were seen jotting down on the office notes.
