Pain Does Not Last

Image
"You may encounter many defeats, but you must not be defeated. In fact, it may be necessary to encounter the defeats, so that you may know who you are, what you can rise from, and how you can still come out of it.

For every obstacle that comes your way, you should be thankful. Imagine how unchallenging life would be without the hurdles we have to jump over to get to our destinations daily.

Many great people have been made who they are by the challenges they faced at some period in their lives, they however overcame the difficult periods by gaining strength to overcome.
I have seen babies cry and few seconds later, they laugh… In life, pain never lasts."
-Niyi

People often run away from pain. And by pain, I mean situations that are stressful or difficult and usually require tough sacrifices. However, pain isn't something we should run away from because it helps us to learn and brings out the very best in us.

Pain is actually the ladder to what we want. If we want something, w…

Stay Hopeful And Don't Worry

Image
"An important lesson that we can all easily get out of life is to make sure that we live each day to the best of our ability, not live each day worrying about every difficult challenge that we face. We have to consciously tell our subconscious to think of things that motivate us instead of things that deflate us.

When you find yourself starting to think negatively about a situation that is prominent in your life, quickly turn the negative thought into a positive thought.

Remember that each day is a new day, a new day in which you can make a new beginning, so throw off your worries before you throw off your clothes at night, and make every new day better than the day before."
-Niyi

Worrying cannot be beneficial to a bold winner. A bold winner only thinks about ways to fulfill his life's mission, he doesn't worry. Worry is needless concern over something which saps your energy and keeps you thinking negatively about your ambitions. You should never spend a second worrying…

Invest In Yourself

Image
"Today, I want to challenge you to invest in yourself. In this day and age, every individual is responsible for building their own future, either as a career person or a business owner.

The world is constantly changing and people are looking for more relevant ways to advance careers and newer ways to do business. It is time to invest in yourself and ensure that you take your place with high achievers.

Take an audit of your current knowledge and your current skills. Then invest some time and other resources in acquiring more knowledge and becoming more skillful. Equip and prepare yourself for your brilliant future!"
-N.Adesanya

It's highly important that you spend a major part of your time investing in yourself. You are the greatest asset you have and it's your responsibility to invest massively in your own self.

First step to do that is to know yourself. Once you've known yourself, it's easier to identify your purpose and once you've identified that as well…

Be As Clear As Crystal

Image
"I’d like to share this with you today. It is lack of clarity that keeps you stuck in a certain pattern. Lack of clarity usually shows up in three ways: personal fears, feelings of powerlessness and lack of focus. Once you have recognized this, you need to consciously release your fears.

Work on empowering yourself in every way you can and with your words. To completely break the cycle of lack of clarity, you also need to learn to focus on what you have set out to do. That way, you will move from knowledge to action and you will get the right results. 

Acting consistently and towards the right purpose is important. Work out your vision. Work out your purpose. Be clear on what you want in life. "

-N.Adesanya


Being clear is having a distinct purpose, direction and focus. And a person who has a distinct purpose, direction and focus has a very high chance of being successful in whatever he or she does. Are you clear on exactly what you want in your life? Are you still unsure of wh…

Always Face Your Fears

Image
"Let me encourage you to be courageous in the things you set out to achieve. Success belongs to those who face their fears and move on in spite of it. When you take steps to be the person you dream about, it is likely that all kinds of fears and self-doubt will kick in. however, that is not the time to shrink back. It is the time to display courage. Courage is not the absence of fear. Courage is the ability to move on in spite of the fear that you feel. 

Let me tell you a secret: every successful person had to face that giant called ‘fear’. Even the best of us become afraid when we have to take steps to achieve great things. What distinguishes a person is not the absence of fear. It is the persistence to move on in face of fear. So, don’t give up because of your fear. Be courageous!"
-N.Adesanya

Being bold and courageous in the pursuit of our goals is indispensable. We simply cannot do anything if we are not even daring enough to try them. Yes, we tend to be scared sometimes.…

On Making Mistakes

Image
"I want to share something very important with you today. In life, you will make mistakes. That’s okay. Mistakes help us to learn and grow. However, when you make a mistake, you must learn to forgive yourself very quickly.

Remember that no one made it through life without falling down a number of times. If you do not forgive yourself, you will weaken your faith in yourself and also your ability to trust yourself in the future.

You are your own greatest ally and so, you must always have a good relationship with yourself. Never beat yourself up when things go wrong. Acknowledge your mistakes, learn from them and move on in life."
-Niyi

Mistakes are not the end. They are just lessons on your path. Don't think that you can never fail. Failure is actually an option in real life which we are sometimes forced to choose. Mistakes happen and you can't kill yourself over anyone of them.

Some go on letting mistakes bother their minds and they don't see the bigger picture. It …

Maintain A Positive Attitude

Image
"One big hurdle we all must get over in our lives is dealing with the impossible. As we face life encountering both the good and the bad, we have to realize that a positive attitude is the key to becoming invincible. That is the key to accomplishing impossible situations.

We have to confront the most absurd of opportunities, take the boldest of risks, and be who we are at our core day in and day out.
We also have to come to realize that the only scenario in which the "impossible" will ever be able to defeat us, is when we start thinking in a negative and defeated manner.

So, stay positive in everything you do, never stop trying, and believe wholeheartedly that failure is not a permanent option!"
- Niyi

Maintaining a positive attitude about life is a must for bold winners. A positive attitude keeps you in the best frame of mind at all times. It keeps you happy, hopeful and determined. A negative attitude does the exact opposite. It makes you worried, unhappy and pessim…

Be Your Own Self

Image
"I want to emphasize to you how special you are. Many people are trying so hard to be like other people. The media has filled our minds with all sorts of role models and sometimes, we find ourselves trying to play copycats.

We can learn from people, but we should never try to be like them, not at the expense of disliking ourselves. Do not get lost in the shuffle. Express your own unique gifts and talents. Do not consider your talents insignificant because the crowd is doing something else.

At best, you can only be a poorer fake version of someone else. But you can be the best ‘you’ that ever walked the surface of the earth. Your Creator did not make a mistake in assigning certain talents and personalities to you. Love yourself. Be yourself."
-N.Adesanya

In today's world, we have a lot of people who are not even comfortable in their own skin. They always wish they were someone else other than their own selves. They feel that if only they were in the shoes of another person …

Only You Can Stop You

Image
"If you don’t believe in yourself, no one will believe in you. No one can give you the resolution to succeed except yourself.

Obstacles can not stop you, problems can not stop you; and most of all, others can not stop you. The only one who can stop you is yourself."
 - Niyi

People could blame other things asides themselves for not being successful in life. But they all forget to blame the one person responsible for everything: themselves.

You have to believe in yourself and in your ability to excel at anything you decide to do. You've got to have faith in yourself and in your dreams.

When you look at it, you are the only one who has stopped yourself from getting anything you desire. Either you've not talked to persons you need to talk to or take actions you are meant to take.

The ball has always been in your court, but you've not scored because you're waiting for someone else to kick your shot for you. No one can do it for you. It has to be you. You have to cre…

Day 7: Dare To Be Different

Image
"Today, I want to DARE you to be different. If you do what everyone is doing, you will get what everyone is getting. Look around you. The society celebrates mediocrity so much that it does not take much to set yourself above the rest. Doing that one thing regularly will put you way above the rest.

Read books that challenge you and make you think. Associate with the right set of people that challenge you to excellence. Know that you have an abundance of potential within you and I’m charging you to bring it out to fruition. You are unique and special."
-N.Adesanya

You can't be a copy. You can't be doing the same thing everyone else is doing else you'll be lost in the crowd. To really be great and stand out, you have to be different. Do something differently. Try a different way of achieving a particular result. Be different.

Don't be a conformist who always does as he or she is told. Be yourself always. All it takes is an honest decision and an attempt, the sky&…

Tick Tock Says The Time

Image
"Today, I want you to always remember that you don’t have as much time as you think you do. Time is like a river. You cannot touch the same water twice, because the flow that has passed will never pass again. A man who dares to waste one hour of time has not discovered the true value of life.

The way we spend our time defines who we are. People use the hours of a day differently. But the way you spend your time determines the quality of your life. Ordinary people think merely of spending time, great people think of using it.

If you don’t take the time to work on creating the life you want, then you’re eventually going to be forced to spend a lot of time dealing with a life you don’t want."
-N.Adesanya

Some people think that there is enough time, bold winners understand that the time is always at zero(now). The way your life turns out is very much dependent on how you spend your time.

What are you doing with your time? Are you using your time to develop yourself? Are you using i…

Are You Purpose Driven?

Image
"Great minds have purpose. Little minds have wishes. A purpose-driven life is a life driven with a motive. If you ever want to be happy you really have to do some soul searching throughout your early years to be able to move towards the life you really want.

A purposeful mind is much larger than a mind that is just willing to wish, because not only can it see the impossible, but it can also move close to receiving the impossible. Just because you have a vision for yourself doesn’t at all mean that you are living out your vision. 

We have to be able to follow who we are on the inside, and the road to becoming who we desire to be will become as clear as day. We aren't all blessed with vision, but those who are must realize that having a wish isn’t good enough; we have to be willing to try and live out our dreams."

Today, we have our fifth article on the "18 Days of Inspiration" articles series. It's going to be all about purpose. What's your p…

Failures And What People Have Said Or Done To You Don't Matter

Image
"I want you to always keep in mind that you are too big to be a dwarf, too loaded to be a mediocre. Many times, we limit ourselves because we do not know the potentials that lie deep and untapped within us.It does not matter if people have said or done things to condemn you in the past. 

You have your future to prove every one of them wrong. The legendary Henry Ford, the owner of Ford Motors was nothing to be reckoned with in the academics, but he turned out to become a genius in the automobile industry.

When Henry went to school and failed, he was encouraged to learn bicycle repair. There he developed until he became a Motor Manufacturer. At the age of forty, he ventured into car manufacturing, and against all odds he became the household name we know today. By the time he was sixty years of age, he was one of the world’s richest men of his time! Believe in yourself and make your life count. You can do it!"

Two Questions To Know Yourself

Image
"I want you to ask yourself this question: “Who am I?” In finding out who you truly are, self-awareness is the first thing you need to access. You need to be aware of yourself and ask yourself questions. Also, when you become aware of yourself there is restoration of value and worth.

You must realize that your self-worth is not based on your achievements, what you can do or what you cannot do. Your worth is based on your heritage. In the eyes of God, the Creator of the Universe, nobody is more valuable than you are.

“Who in the world are you? Why are you here?” These are questions you ask yourself to enable you discover who you really are. Once you are able to answer these questions truthfully, you are on your way to success."
- N.Adesanya

Pythagoras, a philosopher, once said "Know thyself and thou shall know all the mysteries of the gods and of the universe." He might have been exaggerating on the importance of knowing oneself, but there are many reasons why truth i…
