Road To Success: Who do you associate with?

Tokunbo Fasoro

Road To Success I remember growing up, I always had horrible things to say about myself; I was the ugliest girl in my class, my nails looked horrible, I even lied that I was an Igbo girl forgetting my name was Tokunbo – A Yoruba name (somehow, I thought there was more dignity in being Igbo). I would want to bleach/tone my skin because I felt that maybe if I was lighter, I would be prettier. Of course I got bullied a lot, because I felt all my friends were better than me and it was a privilege to be counted as one of their friends. I remember getting myself a boyfriend all because I wanted to ‘Feel Among’…….. that’s the word! Nothing serious, I wouldn’t even communicate with him because I felt it was a privilege that someone thought I was attractive enough to be dated. I would barely even say a word around him.The point for me still remained the fact that I; the ugly ducking had a boyfriend. Well… it lasted only a couple of weeks, I overheard someone say that my boyfriend couldn’t stand my dull attitude and so the relationship was over. This inferiority complex continued through my time in the University and finally my service year. Who do you associate with? I keep thanking God for making sure I was posted to platoon 2. I’m sure even God was tired of my dull attitude and said “Enough is enough!!” (LOL!!!). In that platoon, I met a young lady; who unknown to me had seen more in me than I saw in myself. She would always shout and scream at me whenever I said something negative about myself. She would tell me to shut up and then begin to tell me how much greatness I had in me, how I could actually become who I wanted to be. She made me believe that I could become great in the future. Imagine being stuck with that kind of person for 3 weeks, your life will definitely change! There in NYSC camp, I set a 10 year goal and I achieved it in 9 years. WOW… how my life had changed, and with the help of God, I have been able to inspire people, impact lives, help people find jobs through the BI Empowerment platform, mentor young ladies who had similar issues growing up, as well as help young people become successful in their personal and professional lives. The crux of the matter is “Who do you associate with?” You have three (3) weeks of camp, one (1) year to serve, career seminars, conferences, training programs etc You have an opportunity to network with new people, to meet with some amazing people that can inspire you to greatness or push you out of your comfort zone. You might meet that person who will encourage you to take that big leap unto your road to success and lead you to make an impact; adding value to someone’s life. The question is “Who do you associate with?” Written by Tokunbo Fasoro BIEmpowerment Share on: WhatsApp Post Views: 36

Worry More About Your Name – Jimi Tewe

jimi Tewe

Don’t get me wrong… I have nothing against wearing nice things that are branded. In fact, I do look forward to wearing some brand items soon.. However… When you spend a lot to wear certain brand names and do not spend as much on building your name into a brand, it will backfire on you sometime in the future. The owners of the brands you are wearing invested in those names over years and today, they are reaping the benefits of their investments. Be honest with yourself, the way you are living your life, who will wear your name, or use your name or eat your brand name in the future? Nothing good just happens. God is big on brand names. In fact, He told Abraham in Genesis 12:3 that He would make His name a Global Brand. This is over 3000 years later and the name Abraham still rings a bell. This is the simple equation that should help you- Spend more of your resources on what builds you than what you spend on wearing other people’s brands. You see, when you become a brand, even if you wear low priced products, people will assume it is high priced ...

Who Are You? Steps To Self Discovery – Tokunbo Fasoro

Steps to personal discovery

Have you ever taken a few minutes 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. Self discovery is a gradual process, it takes time and consistence. 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 ...

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: ...
