You have not lost until this happens

You are not yet defeated until you are defeated inside the mind. 

The major hindrances to your success all exist mainly inside your head. 

If you can adopt the right mindset, the heart of a champion…. a lion’s heart that fears nothing… 

You are already unstoppable! 

Now, how can you develop such a mindset? 

For me, I allow my faith in God to do that. 

My faith in God, it fires me up to decide anything is possible. 

Then, I move with like-minded people… people who are also re-defining what’s possible. 

Thirdly, I study a lot. Push myself a lot. 

Learning… Leading from the frontlines… Making mistakes, correcting them and getting better. 

That’s how I do it. 

What other things could we do?

Small thinking. Small business

The reason you will start a small business and after 5 years of running it…. the business remains small is because of small thinking. 

You can never build a business bigger than your thinking capacity. 

That is why for good long term success, you got to be developing yourself. 

I’m talking trainings, seminars, books, and consulting with industry leading experts (who actually know why they are doing) 

So, do you love yourself enough to invest in yourself??

How to get ahead of your peers

Nobody is ahead of you by mistake.

Anybody ahead of you is there because:

  • They know something you don’t
  • They are doing something you don’t

That is why the key to getting ahead is by finding out what successful people know that you don’t… and what habits they have cultivated, that you haven’t.

Finding out such info and habits is as simple as asking.

Yes, sincerely.

You will be amazed how many useful info I have acquired by simply been humble enough to ask.

Really successful people like sharing their knowledge and helping others. You can get help if you ask for it.

What are you supposed to be doing that you are not?

The ONLY proven way to make money online

There is only one well-proven way to make money online.

Forget about all those Internet Marketers that make money by teaching others how to make money. After their students purchase a lot of their garbage, the students also take up the mantra…

They too start making money by telling others how to make money.

Sigh!

The truth is that making money online or offline depends upon the same fundamentals; learn about business.

This is the only way to make money online: deliver the simplest solution you can to a problem people know that they have… and charge them more than it costs you to provide it.

That is all.

Forget surveys

Forget blogging

Forget affiliate marketing

..and please forget about cryptocurrencies .

Start from delivering the simplest solution you can to a problem people know that they have… and charge them more than it costs you to provide it.

If this path then leads you into something like affiliate marketing… that’s great! But you really want to stop googling things like how to make money online.

Stop sending busy professionals private messages asking for the latest trending “online opportunity” (what does that even mean?)

Focus on your personal development, learn the bolts and nuts about how to run a real business and then you can use the Internet to build a big business in 24 months or less (I actually calculated this).

This is the only way to make any serious money.

Do you know enough to start?

100% is our target, no doubt.
However, we should not say we are waiting until we get there before stepping out.
Too many people fail to get on the road because they are afraid that they are not good enough, that they are not perfect enough.
They forget that we humans and our flaws are what actually makes us perfect!
What an Irony… beautifully perfect imperfection!
I used to punch myself anything I sent out #TMP with spelling or grammatical errors… these days, when they happen, I just take note and move on.
The change happened because a friend; Taiwo made me realise the errors where not as bad as I was thinking them to be and so, I made peace with it.
Know this: your shortcomings most of the time, not as severe as you imagine them to be.
The key question should be: DO YOU KNOW ENOUGH TO START?
Then start, IMPROVE, GET BETTER.
Perfect might just be overrated.

There is no need for 100% perfection

There is an understandable desire for things to be perfect. 

100% perfect… 

However, we all do know that 100% perfection is very hard to do. 

In the business world, with so many moving parts, it becomes hard to guarantee excellent delivery to and users at every time. 

So… what I do? 

I don’t allow imperfections to stop me. 

Start now, start as soon as you have enough clarity and then commit to getting better everyday. 

The marketplace is more forgiving than you are thinking. 

You might make a tool of yourself today and tomorrow, but eventually… everything works out just fine. 

So, yes…. there is no need to lose your mind because you can’t offer 100% perfect services right now. 

So your best and get better.

You can hate the game, as for the players…

It was interesting to take out a decent amount of time to read about the board room drama unfolding at Oando Group.

I read the article with keen interest.

It does not matter how you feel about the subjects or objects of the discourse, what matters is realising that anybody who wants to build a big business must also learn about the debt-laden world of corporate finance and how to protect themselves from the sharks.

Check out the article right here: Corporate Stories: Under siege, the battle for Oando.

The idea of learn a skill and start a shop is bad advice, it needs to die

There is something gravely wrong with the gospel of skill acquistion that many folks are preaching.

This idea that you should acquire a skill, say shoe making or bead making and set up a small shop and live happily ever might not be such a good idea.

Now, this is my opinion.. and I own it.

I always challenge people to go beyond thinking of starting a business as a tool of survival… and see building a business as a tool for making economic impact.

The issue: building such shops cannot positively affect national economy.

Big businesses are what can change the national economic outlook.

Industrialization is the key.

You need to build an industry around whatever you do.

When you learn shoe making, don’t start a shop; start a factory that can churn out 5, 000 shoes every day! That is when you start making economic impact.

You make economic impact because you can then EXPORT the products, and this will draw in cash from outside into your local economy.

As usual, you start allowing things like capital, manpower, and all sorts to stop you from giving this idea a chance.

Yet… this is the truth: You set the vision first, then seek out every other thing you need.

One step at a time.

However, if you are not thinking in line of building a big business…

you will work till you die…

..and there will be nothing serious to leave behind for your kids.

They will all have to start from scratch.

Ouch!

Marathon mode activated yet?

Sooner or later you figure it out; this thing is a marathon… not a dash. 

Web or not. 

Social media growth hack or not. 

You need patience… and about 10 years to become massively successful. 

I discovered that even though we have massive tools to distribute our ideas, businesses and projects faster in this age… 

Success is still not guaranteed. 

I speak from my first-hand observations of successful people I know and how my own journey is playing out. 

Don’t be in a hurry… and don’t join the fake it till you make it gang; doing so always makes things worse!

So, the key thing is to develop a sound long term strategy and patiently execute. 

Do not commit the sin of thinking it’s not working… when you have not even given it some time to stabilise. 

It will work out – it always does… 

You might just need to settle down for the long haul.

Are you really been productive?

If you know what you ought to be doing now in order for your long term goals to be achieved, it makes it easier to know if you are been productive or not.

Real productivity goes beyond just ticking off tasks done every day.

We might have a “productive day” that has no bearing upon the longer term vision… and that is actually a wasted day.

Every single day is a chance to take giant strides towards achieving your long term goals, if you fail to do something about it…

You are not been productive.

That is just what it is.
