Tap into the Law of Greatness! – Triple Combination for Outstanding Success (3)

slide1

Welcome to part 3 of the above captioned. If you have not read part 1 and 2, click the links below:

1. PART 1

2. PART 2

Motivational speaker and author, Les Brown, said: “The way to achieve is to blossom where you are planted, to do what you can, where you are, with what you have.”

Going by Brown’s principle, great accomplishment can be recorded when you employ his three-pronged strategy. This strategy can be split into three as follows:


1. What You Can

Life coach and author of the bestselling book, “Coach: The A.L. Williams Story,” Art L. Williams, said: “What you can do is all you can do.” This means if you want to achieve great success, don’t waste your time struggling to copy what others are doing. Instead, put all your effort, your soul, spirit and body on WHAT YOU CAN DO BEST. It is what you can do that will elevate you to greater height.

slide3

One of the reasons some people sink into mediocrity is that they spend their life imitating others rather than concentrate on what they can do best. The fact is, no matter how hard you try, you can never become exactly like the person you are copying.

In the first place, the person you are copying is focusing his energy and whole being doing what he knows best to do. You may not be so gifted in doing what he is doing. In the second place, even if you are gifted in doing what he is doing and you don’t do it in a manner that you know best to do, but you spend a whole lot of time copying him, you can never be exactly like him.

At best, you can only become second rate. And this is not good enough. You don’t have to be a carbon copy of another person when you are created to be original. Leadership coach and prolific author, John Mason, said: “Imitation is limitation.” If you are imitating others, you are limiting your capability. You may be better than the person you are imitating, but because you fail to be yourself and instead spend your life imitating the person, you plunge into mediocrity.

slide4

God does not create you to become a carbon copy of another person. That is why He gave you unique talents and abilities. God expects you to be original, to be yourself and to be unique. That is why you can never be exactly like another person, no matter how hard you try. Imitation is suicide. Trying to be like another person can be frustrating.

Imitation stems from ignorance. Ignorance in the sense that if you realise the enormous potentials God deposited within you, there will be no reason to imitate another person. THE ONLY WAY YOU CAN EXCEL AND DO GREAT EXPLOITS IS TO BE YOURSELF, TO BE ORIGINAL AND TO HARNESS YOUR ENERGY DOING ONLY WHAT YOU KNOW BEST.

Some time ago, two co-authors of bestselling book series interviewed two million people and they came to the conclusion that EVERYONE’S GREATEST GOOD LIES IN EVERYONE’S GREATEST ABILITY. Discover your own greatest ability today and blossom right there.

2. Where You Are

There is a parlance among Nigerians which says: “What you are looking for in Sokoto (a city in Northern Nigeria) is in your shokoto (a Yoruba name for trouser).” Where you are this very moment is the proper place to begin your journey to success. Your location, region, country or continent does not matter. The proper place to begin is right where you are this moment. Don’t wait until you get to the city or foreign land before you begin.

You have to start from where you are. A Chinese proverb says: “A journey of a thousand miles begin with a step.” Our professional soccer players making waves in Europe and other parts of the world today didn’t get to where they are overnight. They started right here in Nigeria. They played actively in Nigerian Pro-league before they left for overseas. Mention any Nigerian professional footballer playing in foreign land and find out where he started.

The chances are, he had played in the home league before he got an offer to play abroad. Why do you think you must get to a particular place before you begin? If you don’t begin where you are, how would you be noticed? You have to be faithful with what you have right where you are before you can be entrusted with greater opportunities. A German proverb says: “GROW WHERE YOU ARE PLANTED, BEGIN TO WEAVE AND GOD WILL GIVE YOU THE THREAD.”

The problem with us is that we want God to give us the thread (take us to greater height) before we start weaving (doing the best we can). That is like putting the cart before the horse. It doesn’t work that way. You must grow where you are planted and start weaving, that is to say, you must do the best you can with what you have right where you are this very moment. Promotion comes from God and for Him to promote you, you must not be lazy. God does not bless an idle hand.

To attract God’s promotion, prove to Him that you are serious, committed and you passionately desire to be at the top. START SOMETHING WHERE YOU ARE NOW AND GROW IN IT FIRST. When God sees the effort you are putting in and the progress you are making, He will be committed to elevate you. God must find you doing something WHERE YOU ARE before He blesses the work of your hand.

If you are not doing anything right WHERE YOU ARE, don’t expect God to elevate you. WHERE YOU ARE right now is very important because that is the proper place to begin your climb to greater height. IF YOU WANT PROMOTION, DO WHAT YOU CAN, RIGHT WHERE YOU ARE.

3. What You Have

What is important to God and to your destiny is what you have. A bird in hand is worth, not just two in the bush, but a million in the bush. In God’s programme of prosperity, it is what you have that He uses to bless you. All Jesus needed to feed 5,000 people were five loaves of bread and two fishes. All Elijah needed to pull down God’s prosperity on the widow of Zarephath was “a handful of meal in a barrel and a little oil in a cruise.” All Elisha needed to help a wife of a late prophet clear her debt was a pot of oil. You need to value what you have.

If you don’t value what you have, you are disregarding an opportunity for greatness. If you have been despising the little that you have, you need to desist from doing so, because the very thing you have, however little it may be, is what God will use to bless you. Little is much when God is involved.

Dear friend, as you do the best you can, where you are and with what you have at your disposal, it is my hope and prayer that you will soon move from where you are to the greater height you always desire to reach.

Until I come your way soon, go and live victoriously!

Tap into the Law of Greatness! Get Up and Try Again 2

slide5

Welcome to part 2 of the above captioned. If you have not read part 1, then, click here to read it.

Every second, every minute, every hour of your life is an opportunity to fulfill your destiny. If you are going to be victorious in life, you need to constantly remind yourself that victory will not come to you on a platter of gold.

To be victorious in life, you must be ready to fight your way through. This has been the path of victors. Every victor knows that without getting up to fight, victory will remain a mirage.


The world is filled with people who will never get up to try. The world is also filled with people who have tried once or a few times and who have given up. They gave up not because they don’t have what it takes to fulfill their destiny; they gave up because they got disappointed that after putting in their best, they still failed. They allow feeling of discouragement to rob them of the benefit of getting up to try again.

Dear friend, there may come a time when you will feel discouraged because your efforts have not made any difference. At such a time, what you must do to free yourself from this feeling of frustration is to remind yourself that QUITTING IS NOT THE SOLUTION. THE SOLUTION IS TO KEEP TRYING UNTIL YOU SUCCEED.

slide1

The fact is, your success is guaranteed, but you don’t know when success will come. And since you don’t know when success will come, you will have to keep trying until you succeed. TO REFUSE TO TRY IS AN ABUSE OF DESTINY. THE ONLY WAY TO WALK OUT OF FAILURE AND DEFEAT IS TO GET UP AND TRY AGAIN. No matter how discouraged you are, remind yourself that IT IS AN ABUSE OF DESTINY TO GIVE UP. QUITTERS NEVER WIN AND WINNERS NEVER QUIT. If you are at the verge of quitting or you have quit already, the clarion call today is: GET UP AND TRY AGAIN. Success is around the corner. You are closer to success than you think. The more you fail, the closer you are to success. And the closer you are to success, the more determined you should become.

slide8

The Bible says: “The righteous man falls seven times and rises up again.” There is no big deal about falling, failing or losing. Any person can fall, fail and lose anytime. The big deal is getting up each time you fall, fail and lose. There is need to shift your focus from the number of times you have failed to the willingness to get up and try each time you fail. The path to fulfillment of destiny is perseverance.

The difference between a super achiever and an under achiever is the willingness to persevere. The super achiever is willing to persevere until he achieves his set goal. He is neither bordered nor discouraged by the number of times he tried and failed. He is willing to get up and try again. This is what it means to tap into the law of greatness. You have to make up your mind today that you will never stop trying until succeed.

Until I come your way soon, go and live victoriously!

Tap into the Law of Greatness! – Start Where You Are

slide2

Dear friend, welcome to part 1 of the above captioned. You don’t have to be great to start, but you have to start to be great. One big mistake we make is that we want to become great before we start to talk about prosperity. The fact is, you cannot keep thinking and talking about poverty and hope to succeed one day. It is not when you become rich that you can start talking and preaching prosperity. It is what you talk and preach about that will take you to greater height.

slide6

If you are not visiting this blog for the first time, you will notice that what we talk and deliberate upon always is victory, success, prosperity and abundance. We don’t focus and talk about poverty because we don’t want it.
Do you want poverty? If you don’t want poverty, then, stop focusing your mind on poverty and talking about it, because what you keep focusing on and talking about is what you are or what you will become.


The time to begin your climb to greatness is NOW. Right where you are, with what you have and with sheer determination, you can begin your climb to stardom. There is a book I have read and keep reading because of the inspiration I get from it. This book is titled, “Walking in Financial Freedom.” The book is written by Engineer (pastor) Samson Makinwa, founder of Kingdom of Light Ministries, Lagos, Nigeria.

In his book, Makinwa narrates how he started his engineering company with only N600 and grew it to a multi-million-naira enterprise. Also in an interview he granted to Success Digest!, an entrepreneurship publication of Sunny Ojeagbase, years ago, he said he was inspired while studying Mechanical Engineering in an Indian University by an Indian engineer who started his engineering company with nothing and made it big.

All that his book kept emphasizing is that you can start from where you are and with what you have and achieve great success in life. You need not have enough to start. You can start with the little you have and grow gradually and steadily until you attain great height.

CFVLSMS (Super)

Dear reader, the road to financial freedom begins from where you are and with the little that you have. You don’t need to wait for things to improve before you start. Remember: “HE THAT OBSERVETH THE WIND SHALL NOT SOW; AND HE THAT REGARDETH THE CLOUDS SHALL NOT REAP” (Eccl. 11:4).

From the angle of faith and from practical experience in his own life, Pastor Makinwa is saying that we can achieve financial freedom, but the question we must answer is: are we willing to start from where we are and with what we have?

slide-9

We don’t need all the money because we can always start with what we have. If we don’t have any money, we can start with ideas. Ideas bring money. Think of legitimate job you can do to generate cash that you can launch out with.

The Structure for Increase

The starting point for increase (prosperity) is having a structure on ground, a structure upon which increase is established. God is set to bring increase if we are willing to put a structure on ground. God has already blessed the hand of everyone He has created, but what He expects us to do to have increase is to put our blessed hands to work. We have to start with something. Let us think of any legitimate job or business we can do to generate cash. This is the starting point. This is what God of Increase requires of us before He can bring the increase.

Don’t wait for big opportunities; grab the little opportunity you can find around you. Those little opportunities around you that you are ignoring could be the very opportunities God is expecting you to grab hold of for your rise to stardom.

Remember: YOU DON’T HAVE TO BE GREAT TO START; BUT YOU HAVE TO START TO BE GREAT. There are many little things you can do to start making progress in life. You have to be humble enough before you can recognise great possibility in the little opportunities around you. An old man once advised his grandson thus: “WHAT YOU IGNORE AND TREAT WITH LEVITY IS WHAT YOUR CONTEMPORARIES ARE USING TO SURPASS YOU.”

Dear friend, if you feel you are too big to start from where you are and with what you have, then, you may be far from the ladder to stardom. Remember that nobody starts from the top. The super successful people today did not become what they are overnight. If you care to listen, you will discover that they started from the bottom. Some of them started from circumstances that are far worse than your present circumstance. You may not want to believe it, but that is the truth.

Enough of the preaching! It’s time to get into real business. Manna may never fall from heaven for you to pick, but you are guaranteed increase if you put your hands to work. The Bible says: “HE THAT TILLETH HIS LAND SHALL HAVE PLENTY.” Find a parcel of land and begin to till it today. You can never dream of abundance until you do.

Till I come your way soon, go and live victoriously!

How You Can Use Bulk SMS to Attract Patronage, Increase Sales and Win Election

CFVLSMS (Super)

Bulk sms is one the cheapest and most effective way of endearing yourself to the heart of customers, clients and electorates. Bulk sms enables you to build relationship and trust. This is what salesmanship and marketing is all about. Clients will not patronize you until they can relate with you, until they come to know about you, your reputation and business.

What makes bulk much more efficient than other medium of communication is that most recipients of your sms will surely read your sms before they decide whether to delete it from their mobile phone or retain it.

Statistics conducted sometime ago reveals that 93% of people normally open text messages sent to their mobile phones before they decide whether to delete it from their mobile phone or retain it. Any medium of communication that can be felt by 93% of target audience will surely produce amazing result.


The reason more and more people are opting for bulk sms is not just because it is a cheap medium but because of its effectiveness. Many bluechips including telecom service providers are using bulk sms to promote and market their products and services.

So also are politicians. Politicians are using bulk sms to solicit the votes of the electorate. They use bulk sms to package and sell themselves. The election of President Barack Obama as US president has been attributed to the use of bulk sms to acquaint himself with his countrymen. In Nigeria, politicians are also using bulk sms to achieve positive results.

If you can recall, at one time or the other, you have received text messages urging you to vote for a particular candidate contesting election. Recently, the Nigerian Bar Association (NBA) conducted her election to elect her Chairman and others. The outcome of the election was the swearing in of A.B. Mahmoud (SAN) as the newly elected NBA National Chairman on August 26, 2016.

From facts on ground, it is abundantly clear that long before the NBA election was conducted, A.B. Mahmoud (SAN)’s campaign strategists had been sending bulk sms to members of the Bar sharing information with them, building relationship with them and soliciting their votes. He also has a website where he shares information, express his thoughts and his makes known his manifestoes when he becomes the NBA national Chairman.

Bulk sms is cheap but it can make a difference in your business, trade, profession or political life. It all starts with obtaining phone numbers of target audience, sharing relevant information with them, expressing your thoughts to them, sending season’s greetings with them and soliciting their patronage or votes, as they case may be.

Bulk sms is also used for sending invitation to wedding, announcing date of meeting, sending greetings to loved ones and marketing products and services. If you are looking for a cheap but very effective way of attracting patronage, increasing sales, sending invitations, reminders, notification or soliciting the votes of the electorates, bulk sms is one sure medium you can use.

How to Cultivate Faith for Greater Impact

Rise Up In Faith

To make greater impact in your generation, you must cultivate faith for accomplishing the impossible. One of the reasons we are not accomplishing more in life is that we only exercise faith in achieving the little goals we set for ourselves.

We don’t set big goals because we are afraid we may not achieve them. We exercise faith for achieving little things but when it comes to accomplishment of bgger goals, we chicken out.

If you want to achieve great success in life, you must cultivate faith for achieving the impossible. To cultivate faith for achieving the impossible, you must take the following steps:

1. Operate in the Realm of Possibility

In the realm of possibility, everything is possible. What it takes to operate in the realm of possibility is faith. The Bible says: “For we walk by faith, not by sight.”


Walking by faith makes us to see everything as possible. From time immemorial, God’s desire for us is that we should walk by faith, but instead of walking by faith, what we do most is walk by sight. We allow what we see, imagine and think to determine the height we can reach in life.

When we walk by sight, what we see constantly are failure, defeat, mediocrity, underachievement, etc. Operating in the realm of possibility requires the exercise of faith. It requires deliberate refusal to focus on impossibilities. A man who operates in the realm of possibilities believes that with God all things are possible. He believes he can achieve any goal he sets for himself. He believes that there is no opposition, obstacle, hindrance or adversity that can stop him from accomplishing greater impact in his generation.

When you operate in the realm of possibility, you will achieve those things which others conclude are impossible. You can’t operate in the realm of possibility and remain where you are. Walking by faith keeps you on the move. You move from one level to the other. You are never stagnant. You are always making progress. Learn to walk by faith day by day and you will keep making greater impact in your generation.

2. Pray for the Impossible

To activate faith for greater impact, you must ask God for the impossible. You must ask God to do great things for you, through you and for humanity. The reason we are not making bigger impact in our generation is that we are not praying for bigger things. If we are asking God for bigger things, I believe He will grant us what we ask of Him. You cannot make greater impact in your generation if what you are asking God is your daily subsistence.

CFVLSMS (Super)

Those who make bigger impact in their generation are people who cultivate big faith for big exploits. With zeal, passion and love for God, Elijah withheld the rain for three and one-half years and called fire from heaven to devour his sacrifice on the altar of God. Elisha, the servant of Elijah, after asking for double portion of Elijah’s spirit, did greater exploits than Elijah.

Peter did great exploit because he was never afraid of taking giant steps of faith. He remains the disciples of Jesus that walked on water because he wasn’t afraid of asking Jesus to bid him walk on water to meet Him. Paul labored more than all the apostles of Jesus, took greater risks and achieved much more for God’s kingdom because he always yearned to evangelise the world.

Dear friend, what are those things you are praying for? Are they little things or big things? Check your prayer points. They confirm the size of the impact you will make in life. To make greater impact in your generation, your prayer points must contain seemingly impossible things you want God to do for you, through you and for humanity.

What are those goals you want to achieve which look impossible for you? Get them listed in your prayer list. Pray over them, not once or a few times, but constantly. Pull away from the school of thought that says you should not keep praying and repeating your prayers. This school of thought will make you a lazy, powerless and defeated Christian.

Instead, get enlisted in the school of thought which emphasizes that you ought to pray and not to faint. So, those seemingly impossible goals you want to achieve should become your prayer points which you pray about constantly until you achieve them.

Those who make bigger impact in their generation are not afraid of asking God for the impossible. “O Lord, give me Scotland or I die,” prayed a famous UK preacher many years ago. God answered his prayers and used him mightily to do great exploits not only in Scotland but in Europe and the world. Your duty is to pray for the impossible and God’s duty is to do the impossible.

Dear reader, do you really want to make bigger impact in your generation? Then, roll up your sleeves now and begin to:

• Operate in the realm of possibility.
• Ask God to do the impossible for you, through you and for humanity

As you do these, it is my belief that God will surely endow you with power to make greater impact in your generation. Until I come your way soon, go and live victoriously!

Power of Dreams: The Honda Story!

Honda 2

Dreams are powerful! There is a popular parlance in the field of motivation which says: “If you can dream it, you can achieve it.”

Dreams are those goals that you are wishing, working and waiting to achieve. They are those things you wish and pray that they happen.
Dreams are intangible, but they are real. They are indication of what you are capable of becoming or achieving. Dreams do come to pass if you care enough to hope, pray, work and wait for them to materialize.


What are those things you you have been pursuing and putting in your best to achieve but have not yet achieved? The word of assurance is that you can achieve whatever you want to achieve. You can reach the height you have set for yourself.

The story of Soirchiro Honda is very illustrative in this regard. When Honda set out to invent motorcycle, people advised him in his own interest never to try it as would fail. He ignored them and went ahead to experiment. He actually failed many a time.

Honda 1

Honda once applied to work for Toyota Motor Corporation, a household name in the auto manufacturing company. He was called for interview, but they refused to employ him because they said he was not qualified for the job. Honda focused on his goal of inventing a motorcycle and after many trials and failures, he eventually succeeded in inventing motorcycle. He did not rest on his oars, but kept innovating and eventually he branched out into manufacturing cars.

Today, his company, Honda Corporation, is competing with Toyota Motor Corporation, the same Toyota he earlier applied to work for, which refused to employ him on the ground that he was not qualified to work for the company.

Dear friend, dreams are powerful and no matter the size of your dream, if you can hold tenaciously to it, and do the best you can, you will surely end up making your dream come true.

CFVLSMS (Super)

Below are three steps you must take to achieve any goal you set for yourself:

1. Be Fully Convinced

If you are not fully convinced about what you want to achieve, it would be very easy to compromise. It is one thing to have a dream, but it is quite another to be fully convinced that you can achieve your dream. Conviction is the starting point to making your dream come true. Before you get yourself committed, it is important that you sit down to ask yourself whether what you want to achieve is another person’s dream or your own dream.

Do you prefer that others should dictate to you the dream you must pursue and achieve? Or are you willing to follow and pursue your own dream? Following your dream is following your heart. Following your heart is following your conviction. And remember: You can make your dream come true even if nobody believes you can, but if you don’t believe in yourself, you cannot realize your dream even if others believe you can. So, your own conviction is the key to making your dream come true. Make sure you are fully convinced before you step out to follow and pursue your dream.

2. Be Focused

Andrew Carnegie once said: “One great cause of the failure of young men in business is the lack of concentration.”

We have much more distractions these days than there were several decades ago. The internet has ushered in networking on social media platforms like Facebook, Twitter, Myspace, What’s App, Instagram, etc, which is okay, but when you spend greater proportion of your time networking on social media platforms instead of focusing on achieving your dream, you are not likely going to make your dream come true.

To make your dream come true, spend greater proportion of your time doing those things that will keep moving you closer and closer to the realisation of your dream. Always shun anything that will not contribute meaningfully towards helping you make your dream come true.

Honda 4

3. Ignore Negative Opinion of Others Honda was warned in his own interest that he should not attempt to invent motorcycle as he would fail. Honda ignored the negative opinion of his friends, relations and others. He kept doing the best he could and he eventually, he invented motorcycle. MOST OF THE ACCOMPLISHMENTS IN THE WORLD WOULD NOT HAVE HAPPENED IF THE INVENTORS LISTENED TO THE NEGATIVE OPINIONS OF PEOPLE AND QUIT.

Between the negative opinion of others and your own positive opinion, it is your own positive opinion that is paramount. People sincerely but ignorantly thought that Honda could not invent motorcycle, but Honda strongly believed he could. As far as your capability is concerned, no one knows what you are capable of becoming or doing.

Only your own positive opinion about your capability will unleash the unlimited potentials within you. If you want to stand out and be outstanding on this terrestrial ball, the only voice you must listen to is your own voice. Never listen to any voice that tells you that you cannot make it in life. Ignore any negative opinion, regardless of whose mouth the opinion is coming from.

Honda 3

Learn to follow your heart. You will only fulfill other people’s dream, if you allow them to tell you what you are capable of becoming and doing. The fact is, no one knows what you are capable of. But if you follow your conviction, if you are focused, if you keep ignoring the negative opinion of others and you keep holding unto your own positive opinion about your capability, and you keep doing the best you can, you will surely end up making your dream come true.

Until I come your way soon, go and live victoriously!

Room for All at the Top!

Room at the Top 1

One of the lessons you must grab if you want to move from the bottom to the top is that there is room for you at the top. The top is not the exclusive preserve of a privileged few.

There is no favourite for the top. Everybody is a candidate for the top. Everybody is destined for the top. The top is not crowded, it is spacious. The top can contain the present over 7 billion people on earth and there will still much more space left, as if no space has been occupied.

God Doesn’t Create Scarcity

Unless we grab hold of this truth, our accomplishments will be few. In John 14:2, Jesus said: “IN MY FATHER’S HOUSE ARE MANY MANSIONS: IF IT WERE NOT SO, I WOULD HAVE TOLD YOU. I GO TO PREPARE A PLACE FOR YOU.” As it is in heaven, so it is on earth. It is however pathetic that in our hour of frustration, we try to limit God in our thinking. When things are not going well with us, we ascribe more powers to satan and his agents rather than to God.

This, in itself, is a sign of hopelessness, and until we rid our mind of such foolish thought, getting to the top will be a mirage. God is a big God and he does big things. God will not create over 7 billion people on earth without making available for them abundant resources.

There is scarcity, there is poverty in the world, not because God did not create enough resources to sustain humanity. The scarcity we are experiencing in the world is not orchestrated by God but by man. When God created the world, He placed in the world abundant natural and material resources to sustain animals and mankind.


But because of greed, selfishness and wickedness, we restrict these resources so that it will not circulate. While the masses are experiencing the pangs of scarcity, only very few are swimming in abundance.

Aim Very High

In spite of the scarcity and poverty created by man, you can break lose from the fetters of poverty and work your way into abundance. History is replete with people who, with sheer hardwork and determination, moved from poverty to prosperity.

Room at the Top 2

You don’t have to be born with silver spoon in your mouth to make it in life. You don’t have to have some deposit in your bank account before aiming to become financially buoyant. You don’t need to have possessions or trappings of fame before you get to the top.

ALL THAT IS REQUIRED TO MOVE FROM THE BOTTOM TO THE TOP IS TO BE DISSATISFIED WITH WHERE YOU ARE AT THE BOTTOM. You should have the realization that where you are now is not the best that God wants you to be. God is not a creator of scarcity but of abundance. God wants you to be at the place of abundance.

This is why you must choose the place of abundance. In choosing the place of abundance, you must not limit your level of effort towards attaining that place of abundance. The problem with us is that we all want abundance, but we allow scarcity, poverty and negative situations created by others around us to influence our thoughts, lifestyle and aspirations.

If you are familiar with village life and farm work, you might have come across farmers who used to say, “The farm crops I have cultivated is okay for this year. I am not the one farming to feed the whole world.”

People with this kind of scarcity mentality are not likely going to break lose from scarcity and poverty. The farm such people have cultivated may not be enough to cater for themselves not even to talk of their family, nation or the world, but they allow scarcity and poverty mentality to influence them negatively.

If you can grow crops to feed the whole world, that will not make your poor, rather, you become richer for it. The solution to scarcity and poverty is to aim high. Don’t allow scarcity, poverty and negative situations created by others around you to influence you not to aim very high in life. Don’t be afraid to demand great things for yourself. Regardless of the situation you find yourself, never settle for less.

To break lose from scarcity and poverty, you must believe that there is room for you at the top. In your field, trade, business or profession, believe that there is room for you at the top. AND WHAT WILL TAKE YOU TO THE PINNACLE OF YOUR FIELD OR PROFESSION IS POSITIVE ATTITUDE TO WORK. TO GET TO THE TOP, YOU MUST BE INDUSTRIOUS, SERIOUS, FOCUSED AND PERSISTENT. YOU CAN NEVER REMAIN AT THE BOTTOM, IF YOU ARE DETERMINED TO WORK YOUR WAY TO THE TOP AND YOU ARE DOING THE BEST YOU CAN.

And finally, before I round off, here are some takeaways for you:

· Scarcity is man-made. God is the creator of abundance and He wants you to have abundance

· In God’s agenda, every person is a candidate for the top

· The bottom is crowded, but the top is abundantly spacious

· All you need do to break lose from the fetters of scarcity and poverty is to be dissatisfied with where you are at the bottom presently

· God created abundance for us and wants us to be at the place of abundance

· In choosing abundance, never limit the level of your effort towards achieving the abundance

· The solution to scarcity and poverty is to aim very high. Aim for abundance. Strive for abundance. Focus on abundance.

Remember, there is enough room for you at the top. Get rid of laziness; get rid of scarcity and poverty mentality. Get up now and begin to strive for the top. And as you do these, it is my hope that you will get to your place of abundance sooner than later.

Until I come your way soon, go and live victoriously!

How Faith in God Can Take You from Nowhere to Stardom!

Ighalo 1

Each time he scored a goal for his club in England and for Nigeria’s national soccer team, the Super Eagles, he celebrated with his two arms stretched upward and his two index fingers pointing upward.

Yes, it’s been jubilation galore, but it was not so decades back for prolific goal poacher, Odion Jude Ighalo.

Ighalo who plays for English soccer club, Watford FC has demonstrated that if you are willing to follow your heart, if you are willing to develop your talent, and if you are willing to work and pray hard, you can move from nowhere to become a super star in your chosen career.

Born in Lagos State on June 16, 1989, Ighalo began his soccer career with Prime FC, a local soccer team in Nigeria and later moved to Julius Berger FC in Lagos, Nigeria. It was while playing for Julius Berger FC that a FIFA Agent discovered him. He was taken on trial by Lyn FC of Norway.

He made his debut in 2007 at the age of 18 scoring in a 2-0 win against Viking FK. He scored 6 goals in 13 games in his second year to move his team to the 7th position.


The 6ft 2inch-super striker joined Watford FC of England on July 29, 2014 and in March 2015 after putting in series of outstanding performances, Daniel Amokachi, the then coach of Nigeria national soccer team (Super Eagles) selected him for the first time. Since then, he has been featuring regularly for the Super Eagles of Nigeria.

One of the outstanding qualities that catapulted him to stardom is his industry. According to www.takemetonaija.com, “Odion is quite not from a silver spoon family. Odion is the kind of player who hustled a lot to reach where he is.”

Though at the pinnacle of his career, Ighalo who is known to be a devoted Christian is quite unlike some who achieved fame and fortune and forgot where they came from. Ighalo still remembers where he comes from.

 

Ighalo4

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

In a past interview, he shared his past thus:

“Life in Ajegunle was tough (Ajegunle is one of the slums in Lagos State, Nigeria), we had no idea what the future hold but we would wake up every morning content with the opportunity of another day.

“I’m the youngest (with twin sister, Juliet) in a family of seven. We hoped for a better life. We would stand by the canal, look across it and pray for a miracle that will take us out of the ghetto.

“The little house we lived in was built by my father and he made sure we didn’t starve like other kids.

 

Ighalo 2

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

“Growing up, we kicked cans, oranges and plastic bags on the street. If we were lucky, someone would bring a plastic ball for three-a-side. “You didn’t need extra motivation to succeed when you are born into the hardship and struggles of the ghetto.

When asked the advice he would give to upcoming players, he said: “I want to tell them to keep working and praying hard. I was like that too. I believe in God and He helped me. They should believe in themselves and I pray their time will come soon.”

“Success, money and fame makes it easy to forget where you come from but God took me out of Ajegunle for a reason.” Ighalo 3

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

And I think one reason God took Ighalo out of Ajegunle is to use his story to inspire people to cultivate faith in God.

Dear friend, what an inspiring story for those wishing to move from where they are to where they want to be. You may not know how it is going to happen, but one thing is sure, if you are willing to work hard and pray hard, as Ighaloo advised, you will surely reach the pinnacle of your career.

Until I come your way soon, go and live victoriously!

Unbelief: the Bane of the Loser!

unbelief images.docx

The problem is not that you cannot achieve your goaql in life, the problem is that you are skeptical of your ability to make it or of what the future holds for you.

Many a time, we behave like a person who takes up arms, enlist himself in the camp of his enemies and wages war against himself. Although this may sound funny, in reality, this is what we do to ourselves by reason of our unbelief. It is worse as that!

I am sure you will agree with me that we all want to succeed in life and to some extent, we may even be making some effort towards achieving our goals. But at a stage, when it appears that we are not making any headway in spite of our efforts, we begin to doubt whether we will succeed in the end.


Power of Unbelief

Unbelief is as powerful as belief. It all depends on the one you allow to dominate your mind. If you allow unbelief to dominate your mind, it will shut down your brain, your abilities and potentials. When you begin to doubt your ability to succeed in life you will lose hope in life and you will not even be motivated to work towards achieving your goals.

Unbelief can be likened to the OFF button of a computer. When a computer is in full operation and you press the OFF button, it practically shuts down the computer system.

The shutting down of a computer is similar to what happens to a man who is working towards achieving his heart’s desires but gives up because of unbelief. Unbelief stifles your hope, makes you despondent, paralyses and forces you to quit. No matter how far you have gone and how close you are to success, if you allow unbelief to dominate your mind, it will shut down your brain and forces you to quit.

The bane of losers is unbelief. The Bible says: “if ye will not believe, ye will not prosper.” Anytime you feel like giving up in your pursuit of success, it could be that you have allowed unbelief to dominate your mind.

Unbelief Repels Prosperity

Belief is a magnet that attracts prosperity. The Bible says: “believe in God and in His prophet and ye shall prosper.” Jesus equally said: “If thou canst believe, all things are possible to him that believeth” (Mark 9:29).

Unbelief, on the other hand, is the opposite of belief. Unbelief repels prosperity and keeps people in perpetual bondage of poverty. Prolific author, William Shakespeare, once said: “Our doubts are traitors and make us to lose what we oft’ might by fearing to attempt.”

One vivid illustration that describes how unbelief repels success is recorded in the Bible. At a particular period in the history of Israeli nation, there was severe famine, so severe that a woman in a reciprocal agreement with another woman, boiled her child and both of them ate the child. As the famine grew from bad to worse, a man of God by name Elisha declared publicly that within 24 hours, there would be surplus foodstuffs so much so that people would them cheaply.

A top functionary in the employment of the king of Israel who had the prophecy of Elisha replied: “Then a lord on whose hand the king leaned answered the man of God, and said, Behold, if the LORD would make windows in heaven, might this thing be?” (2 Kings 7:2a).

The worst form of unbelief is the one which doubt the power of God to do ALL things. And when you have this form of unbelief, what you get always is the worst. In response to the man’s unbelief, Elisha, the man of God, prophesied against him: “Behold, thou shalt see it with thine eyes, but shalt not eat thereof.” (2 Kings 7:2b).

unbelief images 2

And it happened to the man exactly what Elisha declared: “And the king appointed the lord on whose hand he leaned to have the charge of the gate: and the people trode upon him in the gate, and he died, as the man of God had said, who spake when the king came down to him. And it came to pass as the man of God had spoken to the king, saying, Two measures of barley for a shekel, and a measure of fine flour for a shekel, shall be to morrow about this time in the gate of Samaria: And that lord answered the man of God, and said, Now, behold, if the LORD should make windows in heaven, might such a thing be? And he said, Behold, thou shalt see it with thine eyes, but shalt not eat thereof. And so it fell out unto him: for the people trode upon him in the gate, and he died.” (2 Kings 7:17-20).

Dear reader, what is it that you allow to dominate your mind? You may not pay much attention to what you allow to dominate your mind until you begin to watch your life go the way of what is in your mind.

How to Whittle Down Unbelief and Increase Your Faith for Victory

As a result of many negative things happening to us and around us, it is very easy to allow unbelief to dominate your life to dominate our mind. But one way to whittle it down is to fill your mind with faith thoughts.

Read the Bible regularly. Read motivational books regularly. Visit this blog regularly and read our articles herein. Memorise and affirm faith-based bible verses and positive expressions that you find in the Bible, motivational books and other publications.

The more positive affirmations you store in your mind, the more you crowd out unbelief that would try to gain entry into your mind. When your mind is dominated by positive thoughts and faith thoughts, you whittle down unbelief and increase your faith for victory.

CFVLSMS (Super)

Keep memorizing and affirming positive thoughts daily and your faith will grow bigger than your unbelief. When your faith becomes bigger than unbelief, unbelief will have no place in your mind and it will dwindle to a vanishing point.

And then, you will be empowered never to quit but to keep trying until you succeed. Remember: WINNERS NEVER QUIT AND QUITTERS NEVER WIN.
You can be victorious today if you choose to grow your faith bigger than your unbelief.

Until I come your way soon, go and live victoriously!

Bulk SMS and Proof of Delivery

CFVLSMS (Super)

Bulk short text message (sms) delivery, like any other business, is built on trust. As it were, prospects want to be sure that their sms is delivered to recipients. Thus, they always ask the question: “How do I know if my sms is delivered to recipients?”


To any genuine bulk sms dealer or reseller the answer is not far-fetched. Every genuine bulk sms dealer or reseller has a customised website (platform) which has the feature for saving details of every message sent from the platform. And the delivery report can be generated and printed out or sent via email to senders of the message.

The detailed report will include the time and date the sms was sent, the number of mobile phone numbers that received the sms and the numbers of those that did not receive the sms (if any). All you need do to know if your sms has been delivered is to log in to your account that you created on your dealer’s or reseller’s website, as the case may be. After logging in, look for MESSAGE HISTORY. It is at the left hand side of the CFVLSMS website. Click it.



Disclosure

On the other hand, you can also generate the delivery report by clicking MESSAGE REPORT which is at the right hand of the CFVLSMS website. Follow the instructions and click EXPORT to download the message into your computer.

Note: if it is the bulk sms provider that helped you to send your sms, you can request for a copy of the delivery report. And note also that you will bear the cost of generating the report (cost of print-out or sending into your email or both, as the case may be.

Consequence of Message not Sent

Another question that prospects always ask is: “What if my message is not delivered, will I be refunded my money or sms credits?”

Before answering this question, here are some issues we must consider: most times when sms is not delivered, the problem mostly come from telecom providers, that is, network problem. In fact, 99.9% of problem of non-delivery of sms emanate from telecom providers’ network problem.

However, on few occasion, problem of website server, problem of slow, poor or no network do occur. At any rate, it is worthy of note that problems of telecom network and the ones from the server are never the fault of bulk sms dealer or reseller.

Nevertheless, the practice of some dealers and resellers is that if after 24 hours the sms they sent is not delivered, they may decide to bear certain percentage liability. This is more so if the sms is successfully sent from the dealer or reseller’s website without any problem.

And really, if you view it from the angle of the sms that you normally send off your mobile phone to other mobile phone numbers, you’ll agree with me that, on few occasions, some of your messages would not be delivered instantly or not delivered at all.

So, practically, no honest bulk sms dealer will promise you 100% instant delivery. The best that an authentic dealer or reseller will promise you is 99.9% or thereabout.

And this is what we are promising every prospect. Our guarantee to all our customers and prospects is 99.9% instant delivery and excellent customer service!

Cultivate the Mentality of a Champion: 8 Lessons from Donald Trump

Donald Trump

Real estate magnate, Donald Trump, means many things to many people. One key factor that distinguishes him and makes him stand out from the crowd is his boldness to express his thoughts, feelings and action without caring whose ox is gored.

Presently, Trump is a very hot contender for the US presidential ticket under the umbrella of the Republican Party. Far from his speeches which make him controversial, Trump is one man who loves sharing the secret of his success in life and in business .

Trump’s Books

Trump has in his books shared copiously the secret of his mega success in life. Among his bestselling books are:


• Crippled America
• Time to Get Tough
• The Art of the Deal
• The Art of the Comeback
• The America We Deserve
• The Trump Card: Playing to Win in Work and Life by Ivanka Trump
• The Way to the Top
• How to Get Rich
• Think Like a Billionaire
• The Best Golf Advice I Ever Received
• The Best Real Estate Advice I Ever Received
• Think Big and Kiss the Ass
• Never Give Up
• Midas Touch
• Why we want You to Be Rich
• Think Like a Champion

In his book, Think Like a Champion: An Informal Education In Business and Life, Trump assembled loads of success tips anyone can use to win in the game of life. Out of these success tips, I have selected eight lessons we can apply to achieve great success in life. Read the tips below and begin to apply them now:

1. Take the Turn

The road to success is not always straight from the beginning to the end. There are bends in the road. On the journey to success, many people reach the bends in the road and do not want to take the turn. They get discouraged because they realize that the bend is not an end and that the journey still continues.

But Trump is saying: “THE BEND IN THE ROAD IS NOT THE END OF THE ROAD UNLESS YOU REFUSE TO TAKE THE TURN.” Taking the turn at each bend until you get to the end of the road is what makes you a champion.

2. Be Self Motivated

“The best achievers,” says Donald Trump, “are those who are self motivated, who are naturally curious and who don’t need to be told what to do next.” The importance of self motivation cannot be over emphasized. The slogan of this blog is: “Motivation is like fuel that powers your car…..when it runs low, top it up here!”

Just as the car cannot move without fuel, we cannot be gingered to strive for success without motivation. You don’t need to wait for someone to motivate you; motivate yourself. Get excited, get passionate, get serious about what you want to achieve and start doing something however little to achieve it.

3. Empower Yourself with Knowledge

Knowledge, they say, is power. In this information age, knowledge is what you need to excel. The more knowledge you acquire, the brighter your chances of success. While emphasizing the importance of acquisition of knowledge, Trump said: “I may be successful already, but I learn something new every day.”

It is really pathetic that in spite of the information glut online and offline today, we starve ourselves by failing, refusing and neglecting to access these information all around us. Empower yourself today by learning something new every day.

4. Don’t Sell Yourself Short

The difference between a champion and a loser is not necessarily the ability but mentality. A champion is one who has a high self esteem. He believes he can win in any game of life. But a loser is one who has a low self esteem. He doubts if he can make it in life. He has not given it a try yet, but he concludes that the task is impossible.

Champion don’t sell themselves short, rather, they build their self esteem by believing that they can achieve anything they set out to achieve.

If you want to be a champion, don’t sell yourself short. Cultivate the mentality of a champion by believing that you are victorious in the game of life.

5. Know When to Be Patient and When to Move on

As Trump puts it, “Sometimes we have to be patient and sometimes we have to get moving. Wisdom is knowing which time is which and when to do that.”

It helps a lot if you find out early what you want to settle down with. It is possible to be passionate about many things and getting yourself committed to them, but it is not easy to excel in them. And even if it is easy to excel in them, it is not possible to be fully engaged in them at the same time.

So, it is important that you do a self assessment to know whether what you are putting your energy into will bring you fulfillment and success. If what you are doing will bring you fulfillment and success, keep putting in your best and exercise patience if it appears you are not making meaningful progress.

CFVLSMS (Super)

But if on the other hand you discover that what you are doing will not bring you the fulfillment and success you desire, all you need do is to move on. Don’t get stuck in the rut. Don’t allow grass to grow under your feet. Patience is only a virtue when you are on the right track, but, it becomes a vice when you are on the wrong track. Try to know early when to be patient and when to move on.

6. Plan Your Way to Success

Success is a function of planning and execution. As Trump puts it, “Carefully planning your way to success is a sure way to achieve your goals and that approach should never be underestimated. Just remember that you need to be patient and persevering and to know that there can be delays and detours along the way. I’ve waited twenty years to see some things happen, but it was worth the wait and I had to change course a few times until the pieces finally fell into place. Destiny has a part to play in your life and in your business – so give it a chance to work.”

7. Cut Your Losses Quickly

One of the success secrets of Trump is his risk taking ability. He is never afraid of taking risk. It is on record that what makes him super successful in real estate business is that he always bought properties which others considered risky. This has caused him great loss on some occasion, but on many occasion, his risk taking ability had brought him mega success.

Though a master risk taker, Trump is saying that we should avoid taking blind risks. If we happen to take a risk that is already bringing us loss, all we need do is: CUT THE LOSSES QUICKLY TO AVOID HUGE LOSS.

8. Work, Work, Work!

The price you will pay to achieve great success is hard work. You can never get to the top and remain there without hard work. Anyone who gets to the top without hard work may crash in a short time because he needs to be hard working to remain on the top. And since he is not used to hard work, instead of remaining at the top, he will fall down to square one.

Trump, while stressing the importance of hard work, quoted Michelangelo, the world acclaimed genius, who said: “IF PEOPLE ONLY KNEW HOW HARD I WORK TO GAIN MY MASTERY, IT WOULDN’T SEEM SO WONDERFUL AT ALL.”

Dear friend, what it takes to be a champion in the game of life is to cultivate the mentality of a champion. The way to cultivate the mentality of a champion is to practice the eight lessons you have just read above.

And as you practice these lessons, it is my hope that you will start winning every battle that confronts you.

Until I come your way soon, go and live victoriously!

Keeping Your Dream: 5 Lessons from a Great Achiever

Keeping Your Dream

Dear reader, welcome to another moment of inspiration and motivation. What are those things you desperately want to achieve? What is it you passionately want to become?

The fact is, you can achieve anything you desperately want to achieve, if you keep the dream with you. If you are willing to keep the dream with you, you will eventually achieve it, no matter how long it will take.

One success story that powerfully buttresses the power of keeping your dream is that of Monty Roberts. As narrated by Jack Canfield, America’s number one success coach, in his bestselling book, How to Get from Where You Are to Where You Want to Be, when Roberts was in high school, his teacher gave the class an assignment to write about what they wanted to do when they grew up. Roberts wrote that he wanted to own his own 200-acre ranch and raise thoroughbred horses. His teacher gave him an “F” and explained that the grade reflected that he deemed his dream as unrealistic.


The belief of his teacher was that nobody in the calibre of Roberts living in a camper on the back of a pick-up truck would ever be able to amass enough money to buy a ranch, purchase breeding stock and pay salaries of ranch workers.

Well, Roberts’ teacher gave him another opportunity to rewrite his paper and get a higher grade, but Roberts replied, “You keep the F; I am keeping my dream.”

Roberts refused to rewrite his paper, but finished high school and went on to own his own 154-acre ranch, which he called, Flag Is Up Farms, in Solvang, California, USA.

There in his ranch, he raises thoroughbred horses and trains hundreds of horse trainers in a more humane way to join him to train horses.

Dear reader, there are many lessons to learn from the success story of Monty Roberts, but here are five lessons I have distilled which I believe will be invaluable to every success seeker. The lessons are:

1. Dream Big

Big dreams have one thing in common – they look unrealistic, they appear impossible. When Marconi was struggling to invent the radio, people laughed at him and tried the best they could to discourage him because they thought it was impossible for any person to discover a way of transmitting messages over a long distance through the ether. Marconi’s friends even planned to take him to a psychiatrist thinking that he had gone insane, for insisting and believing that he could invent the radio – something that appear unrealistic and impossible at that time.

When Professor Graham Bell was busy doing the best he could to invent the telephone, people laughed him to scorn because they thought it was unrealistic and impossible to come up with an invention that enabled persons to communicate with each other regardless of the distance between them.

The fact is, every worthwhile goal looks unrealistic, but you should not let that scare you. IF YOU CAN DREAM IT, YOU CAN ACHIEVE IT. Your passion, your desire, your yearning for achieving your dream is a prophecy or a pointer to what you are capable of achieving.

Begin to dream big dream now and hold unto your belief that you can achieve it even when no believes you can.

2. Don’t Allow Any Person to Write You Off

The fact about big dream is that they are no respecter of persons. Big dreams are not the exclusive preserve of a privilege few. Dreams have nothing to do with your background. Where you are and what you are today do not determine what you will become in future.

The mistake of Roberts’ teacher was that he used Roberts’ background to write him off. He thought it was impossible for any person from such a humble background as that of Roberts to achieve massive success, but he was wrong. Roberts proved him wrong.

The lesson here is: NEVER ALLOW ANY PERSON TO WRITE YOU OFF. Never allow other people’s negative opinion about you to hurt you or discourage you. Let others keep their evaluation about you, but you keep your dream.

3. Don’t Write Yourself Off

The starting point to achieving great success in life is believing that you can achieve whatever goal you set for yourself. The fact is, you can succeed if no one believes in you, but if you don’t believe you can succeed, you will not succeed even if every person believes you can.

Like Marconi and Bell, your belief is what counts. Your belief is what keeps you working tirelessly towards achieving your dream. NEVER WRITE YOURSELF OFF. Regardless of the situation, regardless of how many times you have ried and failed, you can still make it. As long as you are still alive, all things are possible. We live in a world of possibility and when you believe you can make it, you will surely find a way of making it.

4. Hold Unto Your Dream

Some of our dreams will remain unfulfilled not because we cannot achieve them but because we let go of them. To achieve our dream, we must hold unto it, not some of the time but all the time.

Often, we allow challenges to make us give up our dreams. When we don’t seem to make meaningful progress, we get discouraged and abandon our dream. It is important we remind ourselves constantly that we cannot make our dream come true without confronting and overcoming myriads of challenges on our way.

It is our reluctance to confront the challenges on our way that is making us to abandon our dreams. To achieve our dream, we must make up our mind today that we will not abandon our dream until we achieve it.

5. Pursue Your Dream

Dreams don’t come true by merely holding unto them. We have to get up each day and do something however little to keep moving towards the realization of our dream.

And as you apply the lessons contained in this article, it is my hope that you will soon get from where you are to where you want to be. Until I come your way soon, go and live victoriously!

Jack Canfield is not your run-of-the-mill author. Some of the books that brought him fame and fortune were the Chicken Soup for the Soul: Think Positive: 101 Inspirational Stories about Counting Your Blessings and Having a Positive Attitude which he co-authored with Mark Victor Hansen, another celebrated author. Canfield’s other bestseller that is worthy of recommendation is How To Get From Where You Are To Where You Want To Be.
In this book, Canfiels explains in detail the 25 core principles he utilizes to build his $80 million business. For full details about the 25 core principles of success, grag a copy of Canfield’s How To Get From Where You Are To Where You Want To Be by clicking this link:

Value of Positive Thinking

Value of   Positive  Thinking

One of the greatest motivational books ever written is Napoleon Hill’s classic titled, Napoleon Hill’s A Year of Growing Rich: 52 Steps to Achieving Life’s Rewards. The book contains a good number of success tips which you can use to achieve great success in life.

Some success tips that impress me most are those that border on the values of positive thinking. Below are four benefits of positive thinking that I picked from the book:

1. Positive Thinking Helps You to Find Opportunities Where Others See Problems

One reason a positive thinker can never fail or be defeated in life is that he can quickly find opportunities where others see problems and impossibilities. And by finding and taking advantage of the opportunities, he becomes super successful.


Napoleon Hill narrated a story in his book, A Year of Growing Rich which buttresses this fact. In the story, a large piece of land was put up for sale. Two persons bid to buy it. One of the bidders bid very low because the land was covered with bamboo plants, which he thought made the land practically worthless.

The other bidder offered to pay an amount twice higher than that of the first bidder. He got the land, cut the bamboo into fishing poles and sold them for enough money to pay the price of the land!

Amazing! This is one the values of positive thinking that should make you to practice positive thinking. WHEN YOU ALWAYS THINK POSITIVELY, YOU WILL ALWAYS LOOK BEYOND THE PROBLEM AND IMPOSSIBILITY THAT MANY PEOPLE SEE AND DISCOVER OPPORTUNITIES FOR YOURSELF.

To benefit from positive thinking, stop focusing on problems; look for the opportunities embedded in the problem. Like the story above, wherever there are problems, there are opportunities also. IF YOU CAN LOOK BEYOND THE PROBLEMS, YOU WILL DISCOVER BENEFITS THAT ARE FAR GREATER THAN THE PROBLEMS. This is what positive thinking helps you to find – opportunities!

2. Positive Thinking Attracts Success

The way positive thinking attracts success is that it helps you to form success habit. Success habit is formed when you start thinking of success, prosperity and abundance. When your mind is saturated with success thought, prosperity thought and abundance thought, you will gravitate unerringly to fame and fortune.

Researchers have made a discovery that points to the fact that positive thinking is largely responsible for people’s success in life. Their research findings indicate that successful people always think about what they want; while unsuccessful people always think about what they don’t want.

From the going, we can say that the way we think determines the way we are or the way we will be. “As a man thinks in his heart, so is he,” says the Bible. Thoughts of poverty, defeat and failure lead to poverty, defeat and failure; while thoughts of prosperity, victory and success lead to prosperity, victory and success.

The way to attract success is to think positively. Stop thinking poverty thought, defeat thought and failure thought. WHEN YOU THINK CONSTANTLY OF THE THINGS YOU WANT, YOU ATTRACT THEM UNTO YOURSELF.

3. Positive Thinking Helps You to Think Accurately

Accurate thinking is right thinking. Accurate thinking is devoid of opinion and wrong thinking. Wrong thinking is responsible for our failure most times. Many so-called experts are not helping matters at all in this regard.

The problem with experts is that they try to believe that every accomplishment within their field of discipline must follow laid down principles, otherwise, success cannot be achieved.

This is wrong thinking, negative thinking. There are a thousand and one ways by which a thing can be accomplished. And the fact that something has never been done in a particular way doesn’t mean it cannot be done.

History is replete with stories of people who achieved great success after they have been told by experts that it was impossible to achieve what they wanted to achieve the way they want to go about it. Positive thinkers don’t believe in impossibility. And they never allow impossibility thought to dominate their mind.

They believe that WHATEVER THE MIND CAN CONCEIVE AND BELIEVE, THE MIND CAN ACHIEVE. Learn to think ACCURATELY for that is what you need to achieve great success in life. If you are convinced about a particular venture you want to achieve, just go ahead and start it. Don’t believe any conflicting expert opinion or opinion of any person.

Opinions are not necessarily facts. Disregard them. Don’t believe in impossibility; believe in possibility. That is what accurate thinking is all about.

4. Positive Thinking Helps You to Strongly Believe in Your Ability

The key to success in any venture is the BELIEF in your God-given ability to achieve it. If you don’t believe you can succeed in what you set out to do, you may never be able to achieve it. Scientists have confirmed this fact.

Scientists have carried out researches and have discovered that if a person doesn’t believe he can achieve a particular task, or says a particular task is impossible, he shuts down the brain. And once the brain is shut down, nothing is achievable anymore.

Positive thinkers always have STRONG belief in their God-given ability to achieve whatever goal they set out to achieve. And that is why they always succeed in anything they lay their hands upon.

If you believe you can succeed, you will succeed; if you believe you cannot succeed, you may never succeed. The belief in your God-given ability awakens your brain and sets it in motion. When you keep believing and confessing, “I can do it, I can do it,” you will trigger the unlimited potentialities that lie within you. These unlimited potentialities will enable you to accomplish every goal that you set for yourself.

Now, for many more success tips that you can use to power your life for victorious living, order a copy of Napoleon Hill’s classic, where you will find 52 Steps to Achieving Life’s Rewards. Click this link to order now: Napoleon Hill’s A Year of Growing Rich: 52 Steps to Achieving Life’s Rewards

If You Can Dream it, You can Achieve it

If You Can Dream It

One of the lessons I learned from Pastor Robert H. Schuller’s bestselling book titled, Success Is Never Ending, Failure Is Never Final, is that if you can dream a big dream and you can work tenaciously towards achieving it, you will achieve it.

Schuller who started his Christian Ministry with only $500 and with no member except his wife, and built it into what is now known as Crystal Cathedral Ministries, narrated the success story that inspired him to establish his own ministries.

According to him, when he was a student in a Theological Seminary, he was introduced to a pastor called George Truett, who started as a young man in a church with only 30 members. Truett continued to pastor that very church for 40 years and when he completed his ministry, the 30-member church became the largest Baptist Church in the world! The Church is First Baptist Church, Dallas, Texas, USA.

This provoked Schuller’s curiosity and he began to imagine what would happen if he spent his whole life in one church and kept building year after year, and decade after decade. Out of this curiosity, the dream of building a great church was born in him!

Schuller’s big dream of building Crystal Cathedral Ministries became a reality. Dear friend, do you have a dream? Can you dream big dream? The starting point to achieving your big dream is to believe that if you can dream it, you can achieve it.

Below are lessons you can apply to realize your big dream:


1. Start with What You Have

A journey of a thousand miles, says a Chinese proverb, begins with just a step. Dreams are not achieved by sitting down waiting to get all the resources you need to start with. Big dreams are not achieved overnight; they are achieved by taking series of constant steps and efforts.

The fact about your dream is that God wants you to start with what you have. God is not asking you to you have all the resources before you can start. You don’t have to stress yourself or put yourself in bondage because you want to acquire enough money to achieve your dream. Remember, the Book of Success, the Bible, says, the borrower is a servant to the lender. Not that you should not borrow at all, but that you should not bite more than you can chew. So, beware.

All you need to start with is what you have. Schuller had a dream of a big church, but he started with only $500! That was all he could afford. When God is set to bless you, you don’t need to have big resources. He will use all you can afford to bring your dream to reality.

Dear reader, no matter how worse your situation, there is something God has placed in your hands that you can start with. Never look down on the little that you have. You may not even have any money. Money is not the only thing you can start with. You can start with the unlimited potentials God has deposited in you. You have the brain, you can think. Sit down and think of the ideas you can practicalise to generate the cash you need to pursue your dream.

Most importantly, you have access to the throne of grace. Call upon God to direct you. Ask God for His guidance. Ask Him to reveal to you what you have that you can start with.

2. Start By Faith

The Bible says, “For we walk by faith, not by sight” (2 Cor. 5:7). Start with great expectation. Start with the belief that God will see you through to the end.

Now, starting by faith does not exempt you from challenges. Challenges will always come, but what faith does for you is that it gives you victory over the challenges. The Bible says, “THIS IS THE VICTORY THAT OVERCOMETH THE WORLD, EVEN OUR FAITH” (1 John 5:4).

3. Get Committed for the Long Haul

Dreams, like any worthwhile project, require commitment. In fact, before you set out to actualize your dream, you must establish it in your mind that you will be committed to it for the long haul.

If your dream is not one that you are ready to be committed to for the long haul, then, you may not have to waste your precious time embarking on its actualization.

Most big dreams require decades to achieve. If you devote only several years to actualizing your dream, you may not actualize it. The longer you are committed to the actualization of your dream, the greater will be your level of achievement.

The problem with us is that we expect to achieve our dream in a short time, and if after a few years we can’t see any tangible progress, we abandon the pursuit of our dream and start thinking of other things to do.
Big dreams are not achieved with some commitment but with big commitment. You have to be totally committed to the pursuit and actualization of your dream.

Don’t be discouraged. Don’t let anything distract you. If there is no noticeable progress after some years, that shouldn’t make you quit. Few years are not enough to record meaningful achievements. It takes years and years of hard work and commitment.

You will realize your dream as long as you are willing to pursue it for the long haul. If you can dream it and you are willing to make a long term commitment to actualizing it, you will achieve it.

Knowing fully well that you can achieve any dream, start dreaming big dream now. Start from where you are and with what you have. Start with great expectation. Let your faith propel you to step forward without procrastination and have a long term commitment towards the pursuit and actualization of your dream.

Partnership that Works: Success Secret of the Ages

Partnership with God

I got inspired to write this article on January 4, 2012 while I was reading Success Digest!, a Nigerian wealth empoerment newspaper. Just then, I came across the business name, “LORD AND TAYLOR DEPARTMENT STORE.”

Instantly, my mind raced back to over two decades ago when a young pastor I used to attend his church shared with us the success secret of a man who established his business and traded under the name and style of “LORD AND TAYLOR DEPARTMENT STORE.”

It then occurred to me that the “LORD AND TAYLOR DEPARTMENT STORE” which I read about in the business newspaper is the very “LORD AND TAYLOR DEPARTMENT STORE” that the preacher talked about decades ago.

I want to believe that coming across “LORD AND TAYLOR DEPARTMENT STORE” in the business newspaper is not just a coincidence but also an opportunity to share with you on my blog another principle of success, prosperity and victorious living.

According to the preacher, the business, “LORD AND TAYLOR DEPARTMENT STORE” was established by a man called Taylor. Before Taylor set up his business, he went into serious prayer, asking God to be his partner in the business.

Taylor desired to prosper and said the only way he could prosper was to run a partnership with God. He then told God that as a consequence of the partnership, he would register his business name as “LORD AND TAYLOR DEPARTMENT STORE.”

Lord (Almighty God) would be the senior partner while himself (Taylor) would be the junior partner.

Taylor registered the business name as “LORD AND TAYLOR DEPARTMENT STORE.” Thereafter, he started going round informing people about his business, “LORD AND TAYLOR DEPARTMENT STORE.” Anywhere he went, it was “LORD AND TAYLOR DEPARTMENT STORE.” In his adverts, on the business card, on letter headed paper, etc, it was “LORD AND TAYLOR DEPARTMENT STORE.”

He set up the partnership, ran it in line with the agreement he made with God, his senior partner, and God prospered the business. The fact that “LORD AND TAYLOR DEPARTMENT STORE” is still a going concern and waxing stronger and stronger, bear testimony to the fact that Taylor’s idea of striking a partnership with God is a wise decision.

Running a partnership business with God is one of the prosperity secrets of the ages. Just as it worked for people down the ages, it will work and continue to work for as many as will apply the principle. The procedure for striking a partnership with God and running a successful business is as follows:

1. Get God Involved

Two heads, they say, are better than one, and when God is involved in a partnership business, there is no Jupiter that can make the business to fail. Partnership deal is an age-old success principle and a serious deal that should be taken seriously.

We have read of God’s covenant with Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. We also read in the Bible how Jacob made a vow to God that if God would be with Him, prosper him, protect him and bring him back to his father’s house, he would serve God and give to God one-tenth of all things that God gave to him.

God protected and prospered Jacob and brought him back to his father’s house. Jacob also fulfilled his vow. This is partnership that works! WHEN YOU HAVE THE CREATOR OF THE UNIVERSE AS YOUR BUSINESS PARTNER, YOUR COMPLETELY SURE THAT YOUR BUSINESS WILL FLOURISH. AND THERE IS NO PRINCIPALITY OR POWER THAT CAN DESTROY THE BUSINESS.

Unless one is doing an unlawful business (which is not advisable at all), I see no reason why one should not ask God to be involved in one’s business as Taylor and many Bible heroes did.

You may not register God’s name with your business name as Taylor did, but the important thing is that you should ask God to partner with you in your business and you should be ready to fulfill your own part of the agreement.

2. Prepare an Agreement

In any partnership, there must be an agreement. The agreement usually contains the rights and obligations of partners, terms as to how profit and liability should be shared, how the business is to be managed, etc.

Agreements are usually BINDING and enforceable on the partners involved. Taylor had a binding partnership agreement with God. Jacob and some Bible heroes also had binding agreement (covenant) with God.

Getting God involved in your business, profession, occupation or vocation involves an agreement – oral or written agreement. On God’s part, you would want God to prosper and protect the business. On your part, what would you do for God? Jacob’s part of the agreement he made with God was that he would serve God and give one-tenth of all that he had to God.

Think of the part you will play in the agreement. This is an issue you must decide yourself. No one can decide that for you.

3. Keep to the Agreement

This is the most important aspect of the partnership deal. For a partnership business to thrive, parties involved must keep to the agreement. On God’s part, He remains ever faithful and will keep His agreement. Where the problem lies is with us.

When you enter into partnership agreement with God, will you keep to the agreement or will you breach it? Taylor kept his own part of the agreement and God prospered him. Agreement with God must be taken seriously.

This is why King Solomon, the wisest man that ever lived said that it is better you don’t make a vow at all than to make a vow and fail to fulfill the vow.

And finally, dear reader, the principle of partnering with God is an age-old success principle that never fails. The man, R.G. LeTorneau attributed his ability to make millions to his “partnership with God.”

The prosperity secret of the ages has been delivered to you today. Are you ready to invite God to partner with you in your business? As you plan and run your business with God, and play your own part in the agreement, the ever faithful God, the God that cannot lie, will prosper your business beyond your imagination!

Making Things Happen

CFVLSMS (Super)

Success doesn’t come on a platter of silver. People who succeed make things happen. Often, our inability to achieve our goals in life stems from our reluctance to take decisive steps necessary to reach our goals.

One major factor responsible for our reluctance to take decisive steps is fear of failure, fear of the unknown and fear of starting something new. Everybody experiences these fears, but people who succeed in life are those who refuse to be held down by fears.

If you must achieve great success in life, the first thing you should do is to get rid of the fear in your mind. And the way to get rid of fear is to ignore it. Don’t listen to your fear.

Fear has a way of holding you down for as long as you allow it. You haven’t launched out yet, but fear makes you feel that you cannot succeed. No wonder, Shakespeare said” “OUR DOUBTS ARE TRAITORS AND MAKE US LOSE THE GOOD WE OFT MIGHT WIN BY FEARING TO ATTEMPT.”

What great opportunities we miss when we allow fear to hold us down. George Benard said: “THE WORLD IS RULED BY DEED, NOT BY GOOD INTENTIONS.” The movers and shakers of this world are not the idealists but the practicalists.


Decades ago, a gubernatorial candidate in Enugu State, Nigeria, by name Rev. Dr. Hyde Onuagulushi, was interviewed on the TV and one of the questions he was asked was: “What are the qualities expected of a governor that you think you possess.”

As the question was asked I thought he was going to respond by reeling out the number of certificates and degrees he has acquired over the years, but surprisingly, he did not. Rather, his answer was: “I don’t know the qualities a person may possess to become a governor, but what makes me the right candidate is that I MAKE THINGS HAPPEN.”

And you know what? The man’s success story reveals that he is not a theorist but a practicalist. He has been chairman and managing directors of conglomerates and he is also a founder of a church called God Sabbath Mission located at Achi, Enugu State. Talk of certificates and degrees, he had them in great numbers, but he never relied on them. THE GREATEST ASSET HE RELIED UPON WAS HIS ABILITY TO MAKE THINGS HAPPEN.

There is a great lesson for us to learn here. In life, it is not the number of degrees and certificates you have that matters; it is what you can do with the knowledge you have acquired.

Dear reader, are you a theorist or are you a practicalist? All the knowledge you have acquired will be of little avail if you don’t utilize them for greater accomplishment. One of the greatest assets you can deploy for greater accomplishment is your God-given ability to make things happen.

How do you deploy this ability and start making things happen? Below are three steps you can take:

1. Find Your Own Opportunity

Successful people are those who get up and look for the opportunity they want. They don’t try to copy or imitate others. They don’t jump into any venture because they see others doing it. They look for their own opportunity and they stick to it.

This is one the greatest secret of success: BE ORIGINAL, DON’T BE A CARBON COPY OF ANOTHER PERSON. IF YOU TRY TO COPY ANOTHER PERSON, YOU CAN NEVER BE YOUR BEST, BECAUSE BY VIRTUE OF YOUR GOD-GIVEN ABILITY, YOU CAN ONLY FUNCTION OPTIMALLY WHEN YOU OPERATE ON YOUR OWN PLATFORM.

So, find your own platform. Discover your potential, for that is what you need to make things happen. You make things happen faster when you make up your mind to function on your own platform. Be original; don’t be a carbon copy.

2. Create Your Own Opportunity

Successful people create their own opportunity, if they cannot find the opportunity they are looking for. Charles Cotton said: “GREAT MINDS MUST BE READY NOT ONLY TO TAKE OPPORTUNITIES, BUT TO MAKE THEM.”

Every person is loaded with creative abilities. With these abilities, there is no limit to what you can do. So, if you cannot find the opportunity you want you can harness your ability to create the opportunity you want.

During my undergraduate days at Ibadan, a friend of my roommate once told us of an OND Insurance graduate who went out looking for a job. But when he couldn’t find it, he took a bold step to create the opportunities he wanted. Today, the Insurance graduate owns several hotels, secondary schools and vocational centres in Nigeria as well as several businesses abroad.

The man’s advice to graduates who used to come to him for jobs is: “YOU USE YOUR HEAD. YOU DON’T HAVE TO WAIT FOR OTHERS TO CREATE EMPLOYMENT AND EMPLOY YOU. I DID NOT WAIT FOR THE GOVERNMENT OR ANYBODY TO EMPLOY ME. I WENT OUT TO CREATE EMPLOYMENT FOR ME AND OTHERS. MY ADVICE TO GRADUATE IS THAT THEY SHOULD NOT WAIT FOR THE GOVERNMENT TO PROVIDE JOBS FOR THEM. THEY SHOULD RATHER GO OUT AND PIN THEIR INTEREST ON A PARTICULAR VOCATION AND STICK TO IT.”

That is it dear. If you can’t find the opportunity you are looking for, Go out and create your own opportunity. Remember: YOU HAVE UNLIMITED POTENTIALITIES WITHIN YOU AND WITH THESE POTENTIALITIES, THERE IS NO LIMIT TO WHAT YOU CAN DO.

I wrote a book that deals exensively on the issue of creating your own opportunities. The e-book version is also available. For details about this book/e-book, click this link: SELF-EMPLOYMENT SECRET

3. Act on What You Know

Life is not about accumulation of knowledge; it is about contribution – using the knowledge you have acquired to better the lot of members of the society. The question then goes: what have you been doing with the knowledge you have been accumulating over the years? The fact is, things won’t happen until you act on the knowledge you have acquired over the years.

In this information age, what you must deploy in order to excel is INFORMATION. There are many things you know which others don’t know. These are the things you need to put into action to make things happen.
Dan Kennedy, a successful internet marketer said: “Some dynamic insight into that small minority of people who achieve their goals and dreams, MAKE THINGS HAPPEN, get rich, etc, there it is: THEY ACT ON WHAT THEY KNOW. The vast mediocre – majority of people know more than enough to do much, much better than they do, it’s just that they never use what they know. I’d suppose if you could actually ACT ON WHAT YOU KNOW, 30%, 40% of the time, you’d be 3000% or 4000% of the time ahead of the 95% of the people around you.”

In conclusion, here is a rundown on what you should do to start making things happen for you:
Get rid of fear and doubt by ignoring them or refusing to listen to them.
? Create your own opportunity by choosing to be original and not a carbon copy
? Use your creative abilities to create opportunities for yourself
? Fasttrack your progress in life by acting on what you know.

And until I come your way soon, go out and MAKE THINGS HAPPEN by creating your own opportunities and living a victorious life!

How Charles Goodyear Earned Fame and Fortune from Problem Solving

CFVLSMS (Super)

Charles Goodyear’s name is synonymous with vehicle tyres. You might have come across tyres having the name Goodyear inscribed on them. But he was not the founder of vehicle tyres.

Goodyear began life with no formal education, but he had a burning desire to achieve great success in life. In 1821, he partnered with his father in a hardware business but the business failed.

Later, Goodyear discovered a big problem in the automobile industry. This problem was not with the engine or body of vehicles, but with the tyres. Vehicle tyres in the early years were hard and inflexible. As a result of this, vehicles’ velocity were not smooth.


The solution to the problem of hardness and inflexibility of vehicle tyres became the preoccupation of Goodyear. He looked for a way of making rubber, the raw material for vehicle tyres soft and flexible. He experimented for many years, all to no avail. But in 1839, after years of futile efforts in finding solution to the problem, Goodyear accidentally discovered a way of solving the problem.

How he discovered the solution was that he accidentally dropped a piece of rubber that had been treated with sulphur on his hot stove. And what he observed was that the rubber became soft and flexible.

Thus, Goodyear discovered what is called “vulcanization,” which is a process of heating rubber and sulphur at a high temperature which makes the rubber soft and flexible. Goodyear wasted no time in applying the solution to solve the problem of vehicle tyres once and for all. Today, in the automobile and rubber manufacturing industry, vulcanization remains the process of manufacturing tyres and rubbers.

Though not the founder of vehicle tyres, greater glory went to Goodyear for bringing in the innovation that greatly improved on the quality of vehicle tyres and rubbers.

Lessons from Goodyear

Dear reader, what can we learn from the success story of Goodyear? How can we earn fame and fortune from solving problems of humanity? Below are some lessons we can imbibe to turn our problem-solving skill into fame and fortune:

1. Be Innovative

To make fortune from problem-solving, don’t bother being a founder; be an innovator. Being a founder is a bit more difficult than being an innovator. It may not be easy for all of us to be founders or discoverers, but all of us can be innovators. It is easier to come up with ideas that can be used to improve the quality of an existing product than to come up with non-existing product idea.

This is not meant to discourage you from inventing new products/things. If you are willing to make necessary sacrifices, like Thomas Edison did when he tried 10,000 times to discover the incandescent bulb before he eventually succeeded, then, you should put on your thinking cap and invent a product or products that will benefit humanity.

In addition to being a founder, consider being an innovator as well. Most people referred to as inventors are more or less innovators. They didn’t actually invent the products. Someone else invented them, but they take the glory by improving or adding more value to it. Graham Bell was not the original inventor of the telephone. He started where the inventor stopped and eventually came up with a highly improved device for communication. Marconi was not the founder of radio; he took off from where the original founder stopped and came up with an effective means of transmitting messages over a long distance.

And of course, Charles Goodyear was not the inventor of vehicle tyres; he was only an innovator. He discovered a way of making vehicle tyres soft and flexible. By so doing, he earned greater glory for his effort. Being an innovator is not so difficult.

Take a pen and paper and start jotting down products you have come across that are of poor quality. Whenever you buy a product/service and you see that what you paid for is not what you want, write it down.

After jotting them down, start thinking of how you can add value to the product to make it better. INNOVATION IS THE KEY TO INVENTION. And it all begins with ideas, thinking and creativity.

2. Be More of a Creator than an Academic

If you want to be a problem-solver and make fortunes from your problem-solving ability, be more of a creator than an academia. Formal education is not a prerequisite for innovation or problem-solving. You don’t have to be a degree holder, a post graduate or a professor to make fortunes from problem solving.

A person with little formal education but is willing to rack his brain and come up with solutions to problems bedeviling mankind, is sure going to earn fame and fortune for himself. Henry Ford of Ford Motors Corporation is one of the greatest inventors in the world, but he had little formal education. However, he was a great thinker, a man of great ideas and a man who believed he could find solutions to every problem he wanted to solve.

Dear reader, don’t use lack of formal education as an excuse for not being a problem solver. To a great extent, we are all problem solvers. We earn a living from making product/services available to those who need them. This is the problem solving we are talking about. However, it is not just enough to meeting the people’s needs.

It is equally important that you add value to the products/services you are offering to people. What will distinguish you and make you stand out in life is the VALUE you create. In reality, people don’t just buy products/services; they buy VALUE. This is why you must focus on creating value.

Add value to your products/services before offering them for public consumption. IF YOU ADD VALUE TO THE PRODUCT/SERVICE YOU ARE OFFERING HUMANITY, I ASSURE YOU THAT YOU WILL STAND OUT IN LIFE.

Regardless of your occupation, business, trade, vocation or profession, you can stand out from the rest of the pack, if you will add value to what you are doing in order to better the lot of the generality of the people. We are seeing it happen everyday how some persons in the lower rung of the ladder are attaining national recognition because of the value they add to what they are doing.

In the National Merit Award Ceremony held in 2014, I watched with keen interest the live broadcast of the ceremony on TV how former Nigerian President, Dr. Goodluck Jonathan decorated common citizens who distinguished themselves in their work place.

Among the awardees was a taxi driver who was kind enough to return several millions of naira left in his car by a passenger he did not know. There was also a traffic warden whose commitment, hard work, seriousness and dedication earned him national recognition. And of course, there was this teacher who was described as a teacher of teachers and a moulder of people’s destiny. He also earned a national award for his commitment, hard work, dedication and contribution to national development.

Dear reader, the fact is this: you may be a cleaner, messenger, attendant, mason, mechanic, carpenter, etc; it doesn’t matter. If you are willing to add value to what you are doing, you will stand out, you will be elevated.

You may be adding value to what you are doing and you may think no one is noticing it. Never get discouraged and quit. You can’t keep adding value to your work without being noticed. Let me assure you that someone is out there taking notice of the value you are creating.

If the awardees of the National Merit Award are honest enough, they would tell you that they never knew that people and indeed the Federal Government of Nigeria were taking notice of the value they were adding to what they were doing.

So, never stop adding value to what you are doing.some time, someday, somewhere, your effort will be richly rewarded.

Until I come your way soon, go and live victoriously!
