Fuel Your Dreams

Life is in session!

Life is in session. Question is are you present? On a recent trip to Dubai, I gave my fans a taste of my experience, thanks to my selfie stick and smart phone. From children to adults, many people are taking advantage of smart phone camera technology of selfies. Many people love selfies as it allows us to capture our creative personalities. Before we actually snap the picture, we pose, smile, adjust our hair or makeup because we want to share the best of who we are with the world.

Life is constantly taking lots of selfies, sadly many people are neither present nor aware of it. Some people are not even aware that their selfies are being taken. So daily, they go through life not present, not posing, not smiling, not adjusting the necessary things to appear good for their selfie.

What is your selfie saying about your life? Are you stuck in life? Are you growing yourself? What are you doing to grow and improve yourself? The world deserves your Best. You can only give your best if you grow yourself. You must choose a life of growth. The only way to improve the quality of your life is to improve yourself. When you talk to some people about their growth plans, they say things like one of these days. Well one of these days is not a day in the calendar, so do it now. Fulfillment comes through self development so you should focus on self development to be fulfilled.

Do not live your life like the person whose selfie is being taken but doing nothing to prepare for it. People who are unwilling to grow will never reach their potential. Don’t let that be you.

Work on yourself daily to manifest future results. What would you think of a student who decides not to go to class, study the book but knows he will pass his examination in flying colors.

Yet on a daily basis, many people do not train, practice, nor prepare to be the best version of themselves. To be your best tomorrow you must investment in yourself today, if you expect winning result. Greatness on the outside first begins with greatness on the inside. Your peak performance starts with investing in yourself. You must work hard on yourself so that all the buried treasures within you begins to reveal itself. Begin the journey today to expand to your highest good.

Your Success, Our Assignment

Get in the game and take Action

By | Business Building, LEADERSHIP DEVELOPMENT, Personal Development | No Comments

Life is speeding past us so quickly that we often forget to stop and ask ourselves “Why am I here? What am I here to do? Am I living the life I want? Many people sacrifice living their fullest and best life because of fear. Fear of failing, fear of what people say. Fear has kept many trapped in their comfort zone. Do not let fear paralyze your life. Thinking will not overcome your fear but determination and action will.

Today I want to challenge you that if you have been a spectator in the game of life, because you left fear trap you in your comfort zone it is time to stop the voices in your head by taking action. Are you doing what you are supposed to do with your life, or are you watching other people fulfill their dreams and you are still wishing, hoping saying someday one day. No one has a contract with forever. Life is not guaranteed. Make the best use of your time now. You never know when that last time will be. Stop pushing off your dreams. The time will never be right. So make the decision to start now. Get in the game my friend. Stop staying in your comfort zone wasting your talents and your life. What are you afraid of? Face your fear and don’t let your fear prevent you from what you can do. Time is limited, so you must live and enjoy your dreams. It is time to let go of that fear that has been leaving you trapped and broke.

The journey to success in life is never a straight line. It is full of detours. Get coaching and mentorship from people who are in the game. Stop taking advice from people who are not even in the game. Look for someone who is doing what you want to do and have them mentor you to reduce your timeline. You can learn whatever it is you want to do. There is someone out there that has been assigned to you. You must get up and find them

You must start taking action. Stop talking and start taking action. It is good to have plans but perfect plans without action will not take you anywhere. Imperfect action is better than perfect plan with no action. Knowing principles are great but you can only learn in actuality not in theory

Some people have the fear of failure. Do not be afraid of failing. Remember. It takes 10,000 hours to master something. Start putting in your 10,000 hours through imperfect actions. The more imperfect action, the sooner you will master your skills. Remember the journey is never a straight line.

One of the reasons I became a coach was because I saw many who are wondering if the hustling and bustling of work is what there is to life. Some of these people were tired of being on a treadmill they couldn’t step off of. There was something bigger within them crying to get out. Some chased after success so bad that when they got up there, they realized it was leaning against the wrong wall. So even with success some were not fulfilled. You do not have to work 60 hours a week, nor stay in a job you hate. Your life is more than that.

The people who are living their fulfilled life have followed their dreams by taking imperfect action. They find role models, mentors and coaches to hold them accountable and reduce their timeline to success. They cared less about the critics and what others think. They crabbed their dreams by the horn and pursue it. Action is the source of all goals that are met, dreams that come true and legacies that are left.
Here are a few fast action tips to get into action

Gratitude: Be thankful and grateful for you. Be thankful for what you have. Gratitude opens the door for more.
Be intentional: What do you want? Do you know why you are here and what you are suppose to do?
Start small: You do not have to be great to start but you have to start in other to be great. you wait for the timing and circumstances to equal perfection? We all know that day will never come. Perfection is the enemy of Action.
Identify a mentor or coach that has accomplished what you want to achieve. Begin studying their business and model what has worked for them. Begin a growth relationship with them through a coaching or mentoring program. This will drastically reduce your timeline.
Join a community of like-minded individuals that are taking ACTION! There are online forums, meet-up groups, and professional organizations that cost nothing but will give you the support you need to break through and never look back!
Have someone hold you accountable. Stay focused and run your own race.
Take some time to think about what is possible for your future and make that decision to go after it. Never compare your behind the scene picture with someone else’s highlight. Focus on being the best version of yourself. It is your journey, it is your race focus is key.

The Power of an Inner Circle

By | Personal Development | No Comments

The Power of an Inner Circle

The concept of Inner circle has helped many great leaders. A person’s individual efforts can only do so much. Through the power of a team of Inner Circle, a leadership potential is increased. Who are the 5 people closest to you as a leader? Do you have a team? Who do you have in your team? Part of leadership responsibility is delivery. A leader has to deliver and there is just no substitute to performance. Delivery and performance is made possible with a good team.

As a leader, I remember years back how my team stepped in to enrich my leadership. The best leaders pick good team of people who compliment their weaknesses. Who is in your team? Leaders have to be intentional about picking a team. There is no lone ranger in leadership. Picking the right people for the inner circle is about surrounding yourself with people who will lift you up. This is because a leader’s potential is determined by those in their Inner Circle.

Team building is an important aspect of leadership. You cannot do it all by yourself.. It is not enough to just have people in your Inner Circle without them getting along with one another. Your Inner Circle must compliment you while you also empower them as well as add value to their lives. A leader can easily fail if they do not have a solid Inner Circle.

With a good Inner Circle, a leader must first work on themselves. You must know what area of your life that needs changing and do so accordingly. Remember that you cannot change others. You must first work on yourself. Working on yourself is knowing what your core values, personalities and strengths are. In it all, be authentic. Leaders make things better for their Inner Circle. Their victory is very important to the leader. Remember that leadership is about influence. To influence others, performance is necessary. Performance of a leader is more enriched by their inner circle.

Kolbe Wisdom™
Kolbe sees every person as uniquely and perfectly capable of creative problem solving.

The Kolbe Concept® holds that creative instincts are the source of mental energy that drives people to take specific actions. This mental drive is separate and distinct from passive feeling and thoughts. Creative instincts are manifested in an innate pattern that determines an individual’s unique method of operation, or modus operandi (M.O.).

A person’s M.O. is quantifiable and observable yet functions at the subconscious level. It governs actions, reactions and interactions. It also determines the person’s use of time and natural form of communication. Understanding and exercising control over this mental resource gives people the freedom to be their authentic selves.

When people act according to instinct, their energy is almost inexhaustible – like water running downhill. But when people are forced to act against their instinct, their energy is rapidly depleted – like water being pumped uphill.

Individual performance can be predicted with great accuracy by comparing a person’s M.O. with self-expectations and the requirements of specific tasks. Performance fluctuates based on how closely these elements align.

M.O.s vary across the general population and show no gender, age or racial bias. When groups of people with the right mix of M.O.s function interactively, the combined mental energy produces synergy. Teams organized along these lines can perform at a higher level than is possible for the same group of people functioning independently. Team performance is accurately predicted by Kolbe’s proprietary algorithms which determine the appropriate balance and makeup of M.O.s.

The Kolbe Concept is backed by substantial scientific research and validation and is examined in numerous research articles. Additional scholarship has focused on the historical and theoretical basis that underlies the Kolbe Concept.

MINDSET

By | Business Building, LEADERSHIP DEVELOPMENT, Personal Development | 19 Comments

The mind is a fertile soil that will grow anything we plant in it. WHAT are we saying to ourself? We should realize that what we say is what we get? There is a popular saying that what you see is what you get. This is not so because we do not walk by sight, instead we walk by faith. It is important to control the words of our mouth. The words of our mouth is producing our lives. God knows the future because He has spoken the future. He spoke the world into existence. However, God put our future into our hands, through what we speak into our lives

It is important to train oneself in other to control the world and the future. Words are spirit and they are life. We cannot rise above what we allow ourselves to say or think. We speak our life into existence through the power of our words. We must control our mouth through controlling our mind. As a man thinketh in his heart, so he is. To control our thinking we must control our thoughts. Thoughts are things.

There are 3 sources from which we receive thoughts

Our 5 senses. Hearing, taste, smell, touch, sight. A lot of the things that have been learned came from our senses.

Devil ( the devil bombards the mind with negative thoughts even though he cannot read our mid)

God speaks to our spirit and our spirit speaks to our mind. The mind is like a machine.

To tell if our thoughts are good or bad, we must program our mind. We must renew our mind through God’s words. We must program our mind positively and empower ourselves in God’s words. When anything comes up against it, cast it down by God’s promises. We must put every thought under the obedience of God. It starts as thoughts, then imaginations, then strong hold, then the stronghold starts to control the person’s life. Remember we have power to pull down the stronghold. We must control our thoughts so it does not lead to imagination and stronghold.

We must never let frustrations, fear, anger, security, jealousy rule our heart. Let all thoughts to be subject to the peace God has given. Whenever a thought comes to our mind, and we know that we cannot follow that line of thinking in the word of God, then we must dismiss it. Anything that disturbs our peace is not from God so we must dismiss it. It is important to renew our mind with the word of God. Let our minds be ruled by the peace of God not our bills, our worries nor negative thoughts that leads to imaginations and strong hold. God’s word is victory.

Start thinking God’s word in all situations.Victory or defeat is born in the mind. To be successful, master the mind. Successful people have it in their minds that they will win. My encouragement is that it does not matter whatever situation we are in, if we can put correct thoughts in our mind, get that thought to become imagination.

Building Relationships for partnership Power

By | Business Building, LEADERSHIP DEVELOPMENT, Personal Development | No Comments

There’s an African proverb that says, “If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.” Six years ago, I was talking about my 5,000 connections on a mastermind. One of the like minded participant asked me, “Abiola I challenge you to connect with seven new people this week”. I have since them understood that broadcasting on social media to over 5000 people is not the same as connecting with seven people weekly. That challenge began my partnership power. It was very tough for me that week to connect with seven people. I managed to connect with three people. I immediately realized that I needed to work on building new and positive relationship. Partnership power helps one relate to people with sincerity and good connection.

Relationship building is indeed biblical. One of the golden rule is to love our neighbors as ourselves. It is important to work on building positive relationships aw well as stay connected with others. This makes people happy and build good health. Positive relationships indeed leads to good health and wealth. Its been said over and over again that people do business with those they KNOW, LIKE AND TRUST. It is important to connect and build relationships not just to win friends and influence people but to have sincere interest in others, love them and treat them the way one desires to be treated. When a sincere and genuine relationship is built, reward follows.

In business building and life building, look for every opportunity to connect with people everyday and make friends. Nick Vujicic in a conference once asked how many people connect with cashier at the store? He said that for many that is when they pay more attention to their phones. Connection is important even with cashiers. There is opportunities all around us to connect and meet new people on a daily basis.

Nurturing relationship is also very important. Just like plants and flowers in the soil, water is needed to keep them alive. Similarly, mutual obligations are important in keeping relationships. To take life or your business to the next level, build and nurture new relationships.

The next level requires new relationships, enlarging the rolodex, nurturing existing relationships, community involvement and stop giving excuses of not having time. When I was young in nursery school, I remember us singing “ Make new friends, but keep the old, one is silver and the other is gold” The beginning of making new friends may not be comfortable, but remember growth happens outside of the comfort zone. I encourage you, inspire you and motivate you to join the challenge of making 7 connections every week.

Your life is about to change, by building positive relationships.

With Love
