I long to see a society were young people are taught and trained to think with their minds and create solutions to the problems around them.
A society where people are more eager to create new things than to relish old ones.
Where we are constantly striving to outperform our last best instead of lowering the standard just so we could reach them.
I’d love to see a generation of young people who are more interested in building their minds and creative thinking capacity more than decorating their faces.
A society where young people think of themselves as leaders and influencers and then SPEAK and ACT accordingly.
Human Capital Development is my PASSION and PRINCIPAL OBJECTIVE.
Equipping my generation with the right tools, skills, Wisdom and Virtues is MY PURPOSE.

Life and Business Strategy for Critical Advantage.
For sometime in my life I was constantly battling a low self esteem and a tendency for depression…
I couldn’t really understand why it was very difficult for me to be truly happy with my life.
Everytime I considered my ‘circumstances’, there was always something to be sad about…
This went on for a long time until I decided to SHIFT MY PERSPECTIVE. And as I shifted my perspective, my inner ‘atmosphere’ and ‘ecosystem’ began to change as well.
I had learned that “Nothing means anything in itself except the meaning we (and God) give to it” – personal interpretation.
So I decided to begin to see myself differently and to interpret things differently… And that has made ALL THE DIFFERENCE
You are constantly radiating the essence of your inner atmosphere in a very subtle (and sometimes unconscious) manner.
And wether you like it or not, who you are inside (who you perceive and believe yourself to be) is what determines your ultimate reality.
It is important to deliberately develope peace in your heart and mind to enjoy peace around you.
It is important to begin to SEE yourself from a Success-point-of-view if you will ever manifest success in your life.
How you see yourself is what determines how you interpret your life’s circumstances. Because we do not see the world the way it is… We see the world the way we are.

sometimes we get so weighed down by the regrets of the past or tensed up by the anxieties of the future that we eventually lose the peace in our lives today that we really need.
This is not the best way to live.
There is a simple recipe for DAILY PEACE which I have found. Simple but not necessarily easy. And here it is;
Forget about your past, it’s behind you.
Don’t worry about the future, it’s yet to come.
Focus your attention on THE PRESENT and do the best you can each day.
This frees you from both the regrets of the past and the anxieties of the future. And when you do focus on the Present, do so with a consideration (not a worry) of the future. – This is called PRUDENCE.
If you can master this habit and practice it daily, one day, you will wake up to find that you are living the DREAMS that you have always wanted.
Peace is within your reach
When Life knocks you down, don’t just fall, Bounce!
You see, everyone makes mistakes and some mistakes can be really consequential.
Sometimes, we find ourselves in situations where we just can’t figure out how to move on in life.
Maybe a loved one died… or you lost a huge some of money in an investment… or you failed in business… or you failed a very important examination in school… or a relationship didn’t work out. And it’s kinda like being knocked down REAL HARD.
Get over it.
They say you can’t put a broken egg back together… it’s true (what has happened has happened). But it’s also true that you can make omelette with it (Fry it baby 😉 and enjoy the meal). It’s the lessons you take out of the experience that matters more.
It doesn’t matter how FAR DOWN you fall, what matters most is how HIGH UP you BOUNCE.
But what does it really take to Bounce back? I’ll talk about just two.
FLEXIBILITY. Don’t be rigid my friend. Rigid stuffs crack or break when they receive a hit. It takes flexibility to bounce. Be flexible in your approaches to life issues (while being focused on your objectives) and learn to explore alternative methods as long as they don’t violate your values. Be flexible.
BE PUMPED UP! Yeah, you really can’t bounce if you are deflated, even if you’re flexible. You have to be filled up inside. – pumped up!
This is really the essence of motivation (to pump you up) but like we all know, motivation doesn’t really last. So you need it regularly and often.
Be pumped in HOPE – Hope in a better tomorrow.
Be pumped up in FAITH – Faith in God who can never fail.
Be pumped up in WISDOM – Wisdom for directions and guidance.
… and stay ‘bounceable’.

Your creative inspirational friend.
Let the World hear the song of your heart.
Let the Flower of your soul blossom.
Give expression to music and melodies of your spirit.
For out of your belly shall flow Rivers of Living Waters.
And let nothing convince you otherwise.
“Greater is the end of a thing than the beginning thereof…”
It is often said that it is not how you begin that matters most, but how you end. It is good and very important to start well but perhaps more important is to end well.
As we look toward the end of this year and make plans for the beginning of the coming year, I want to urge you to do something. Just one thing.
I believe that you have taken stock of how the year have been (if you haven’t, please do that without any further delays) and you have counted your wins and your ‘lessons’ (no losses). However, there is still room for greater victories even in these final days.
I want you to look back at the whole year and pick out just ONE GOAL that you can still accomplish before the 31st night. It doesn’t have to be a big and mighty goal (if there is any such thing). It should just be a goal that will add an extra ‘feather’ to your hat in 2017.
It could be that book that you have always wanted to read, that old friend that you know you should reconcile with, or that hanging project that you can still quickly conclude within the next few days.
By all means legitimately possible, JUST DO IT!
It will give you such positive energy to kick start the new year and you’d be glad you did.
For me, there’s this one goal I’ll be ticking off my checklist this week. So keep your fingers crossed and #Anticipate.
