If You Can Think IT, You Can Do It.

No Pain No Gain Tokunbo Fasoro

IF YOU CAN THINK IT The first time I heard this slogan (If You Can Think It, You Can Do It) was on a talk show “Moments with Mo” and I just fell in love with it. That phrase my mind set at that particular time. Growing up, I realized I had an inferiority complex. I felt everyone was better than me. It was so bad I remember a particular time that I thought Igbos were superior to the Yorubas and would always wish and tell people that I was an Igbo girl forgetting or even too young to understand that my name was a Yoruba name. I was always bullied in school, many times, my classmates would push my bed outside to the corridor and I would not mind just because I did not think I was good enough to be their friend and I wanted acceptance from them. I thought myself as a failure and unworthy of success. My mind was always pre occupied with negative thoughts until one day, my mom called me and told me she had been watching me and realized I did not believe in myself, what she told me that day changed my life.  ...

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: 965

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 ...

5 reasons why you should follow your Passion.

Solar Media

Follow your Passion and success will follow I kept watching the photographer during a photo-shoot and all I could see was passion. Ironically, he came into our office quite ill. He said he had a headache and his body ached but during the shoot it seemed like an untruth. It looked to me that he was not even conscious of how he felt and he just kept going; climbing stools, kneeling and lying down to shoot. All I could see was a guy that is extremely passionate about what he does. I then asked him a question? “You seem to be very happy with what you do” and he said to me, “I enjoy every moment of it” He went on to tell me that he studied Microbiology and graduated with a second class upper, but unfortunately, Microbiology is not his thing. “I am a very creative person who gets pleasure from designing stuff” he said. That was how he knew he needed to do something else. He discovered photography and the shooting of videos. He fell in love with it and started attending functions – shooting for free. Here he is today, a successful entrepreneur! Now the question is: ...
