Get Ready For Big Opportunities By Opeyemi Komolafe.

Get ready

GET READY!!!! A very popular saying is “When opportunity meets preparation, success is inevitable.” That saying is so true!! You complain about how you can’t get a break to show your skills or an opportunity to show a prospective employer/investor how invaluable you or your idea is, yet, when you get that chance, the amazing break you envision disappears like smoke in the wind. Why did that happen? I have a possible explanation……….. It could be that when that opportunity came, you were required to display a certain skill, showcase knowledge in a certain area, possess a competence etc which you lacked, consequently you appeared not to be quite ready to handle that responsibility. INVEST IN YOURSELF Dear readers, even the most successful individual still has a little project he/she is working on which needs some level of approval. While waiting for that big opportunity, why not invest in yourself? Spend time acquiring different skills, reading about new things, doing short courses etc, basically investing in yourself, so that when that opportunity presents itself, it will find you competent, knowledgeable and well aware of how to move from point A through to point Z. Believe me, if you are feeling your way, unsure and faltering, your investors will find out and a competent recruitment team can tell. No one will trust his business to someone who comes across as unprepared or not competent to handle the responsibilities of the new position/business. Learning point for today…….. while waiting, get ready so that when your big opportunity comes it will meet you ready to run. Edited by Ojochide Isaac. Share on: WhatsApp Post Views: 967

Positive Thinking by Tokunbo Fasoro

Positive Thinking by Tokunbo Fasoro

What is positive thinking? Positive thinking is a mental and emotional attitude that focuses on the bright side of life and expects positive results. Positive thinking: How positive thoughts can build your skills.  With a positive attitude, we experience pleasant and happy feelings; this brings brightness to the eyes, more energy, and happiness. Our whole being broadcasts goodwill, happiness and success, even our health is affected in a beneficial way. We walk tall, our voice is more powerful and our body language shows the way we feel.

Setting SMART Goals for 2018 by Tokunbo Fasoro

A few days ago, I sat down and began to analyze my life in 2017. I am grateful to God that I set 9 major goals and achieved 6 of them. I remember how about a couple years ago I would set goals and never take them seriously, in fact by February I would have forgotten all I set. But the year I decided to take my goals seriously, I wrote them down behind a dairy I carry around every where, so I could look at them from time to time, measure progress and stay focused, that was when I began to make a head way. I also learnt a lot of lessons along the way, some very hard but more importantly, it has helped me re-evaluate my journey to determine if I am headed in the right direction or not. These lessons would also stand as a guide for me in 2018. For some people who may feel that their course has been slightly deterred or even derailed, see the New Year as a fresh start to re-establish your goals and start the process of creating the path you desire. Personal goal setting helps us evaluate what we like ...
