Steps to Personal Discovery – Tokunbo Fasoro

Steps to personal discovery

Today, I would be speaking to you about self-discovery. Have you ever taken a few minute to assess yourself – Who am I? What do I want in life? What makes me happy? This is the first step to discovering how successful and fulfilling your future will be. Here are a few things that can prevent you from discovering yourself: Fear of who you really are- Remember no one is perfect, everyone has strengths and weaknesses. Decide to work on your weaknesses while leveraging on your strengths. Lack of self-love- For some people while growing up, people around you or circumstances around you could have made you hate yourself, I hear some parents use horrible words on their children or compare children. This may have led you to developing a low self-esteem. That is not who you are- never forget that. The onus is on you to define who you are. Not allowing yourself to dream or be creative: Most times while growing up, we hear stuff like medical doctors earn more and all you are thinking about is how to be a doctor. Sometimes we are influenced by our parents to study a certain course rather than to follow ...

Career Growth versus Career Development Pitching career growth versus career development doesn’t make them completely unrelated but it doesn’t make them the same thing either.

We will take a good look at what each one means as well as how they affect your career in the short-term and in the long-term. What is Career Growth?   Career growth is the process of moving from one point of the corporate ladder to another. Promotions is one of the most popular ways through which career growth is achieved.

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.   Research is beginning to revel that positive thoughts is not just about being happy, but that positive thoughts can actually create real value in your life and help you build skills that can help you progress in you professional and personal life.

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: ...

Tokunbo Fasoro Youth Mentorship Program

Tokunbo Fasoro Youth Mentorship Program

The Tokunbo Fasoro Youth Mentorship Program – Mentoring over 5000 youths every year INTRODUCTION The Tokunbo Fasoro Youth Mentorship Program was borne out of a need to reach out to a larger number of youths. Over the years, I have interviewed a large number of graduates for diverse positions in different organizations and have discovered that they lack the basic skills required, even for an entry level job. This stirred up a great concern in me and a drive to proffer solutions. There was an obvious gap between the academic environment and workplace that needed to be filled. This led to the birth of the BI Graduate School where graduates were trained and equipped for free. This School eventually birthed BI Empowerment; a virtual and physical platform with a mandate to bridge the gap between the academic environment and workplace through various free empowerment programs. These programs include sponsored training, workshops, inspirational talks, meetings with successful professionals who share real-life experiences that help youth in their personal and professional lives etc. This platform (www.biempowerment.com) has a readership of young to mid-level professionals from all parts of the world. It also provides job opportunities, career mentoring and advisory services all for ...
