THE SECRETS TO SUCCESS: Why some are successful and why others are not!

Hello friends it's always a pleasure to hear from you guys I really do enjoy posting on this blog and thanks for your comments and contributions! It's a lovely day and we're goona really enjoy ourselves this time, infact, everyday is a good day!

The last statement above should be our lifestyle! You should have a strong positive outlook to life! That I've come to discover is the secret to success! Success really starts from the mind! I've been doing lots of reading lately and all the books, I mean every single one of them, usually start with a statement like this: "you've got to change your thinking in other to change your life!", " your thoughts create your reality", I mean every single one of them usually say this! I think that is very profound.

Throughout history, all great leaders,philosophers and scientists have always agreed on this singular subject of the power of our thoughts on the outcomes we produce in our lives! In other words, thoughts becomes things! What you focus on grows and eventually materializes in your life! whether good or bad! This may sound shocking but it's the absolute truth! What you focus on most of the time would eventually come to pass in your life! It's only a matter of time, where it be positive or negative!

So really, the secret to success is in this little statement : you become what you think about most of the time! I repeat again for emphasis, "your thoughts becomes things!". So, I enjoin you to do this henceforth, change your thinking pattern for the better, have a positive outlook on life. One of the great life coaches we have around today, Art Williams, said "life would give you what you demand of it!" You would get what you deserve not just what you wish! Hmmm... I think that is very powerful! Please ponder on this statement, and I'll see you in the next post! Enjoy!

Hi there, it's good to be back on these series on "Inspiring Moments with John Obuku", I really hope that these series have been a source of blessing to you and your family for the past few months, it has surely been for me. Please keep on sending in your calls,texts messages and contributions, they are all invaluable to the progress of this blog. Thanks once more.

Below are the remaining half of the 10 values of a true Nigerian, given by Fela Durotoye, please enjoy!:
6) Value Time.
Time is life,money and the currency of the world. Everything in the world gravitates towards the use of time. If you don't value my time, you won't value my wisdom.

7) Care And Show Respect.
Respect is reciprocal, what you give out, the same measure you'll be given again. Let there be mutual respect for both the young and old, one day you'll needing either of them!

8) Consciously Build a Great Legacy.
Live life with the conscious act of making a great impact to your direct sphere of influence. Be a positive change agent. What would you be known for? What are you known for? What is your legacy for your children,community and country?

9) Live A Life of Integrity And Honour.
Your yes should be yes, even if it means displeasing yourself to honour others, do it! It gives you honour and high esteem amongst your peers and those connected to you.

10) Make Your Family, Your Nation and Your Continent and Your God Proud.
Your life should be lived in such a way that it brings glory to your family,nation,continent and God. These groups should look at you and say "yes this is our son, in whom we are well please!".

Wow! That was some mind-blowing stuff over there, please go through the whole ten again, and endeavour you build your life on these principles and truly our Nation Nigeria would turn out to be " the most desirable nation to live in by the year 2025", God bless y'all.

Take Charge!

10 VALUES OF A TRUE NIGERIAN: Rebirth of a New Nigeria!

Hello friends, it's always a pleasure to come on the net to discuss on this our very wonderful forum "Inspiring Moments with John Obuku", and I'm so so glad you're over there reading this post! You are very very important to me!

Now, for those of you, who have been following me on this blog,you'll know that one of my mentors in life is FD,Fela Durotoye,and I read something on FaceBook today which he posted and I'll love to share it with y'all, infact, he expressly gave the go-ahead to "Live It,Spread It!", so am just obeying to voice of my mentor! Please enjoy!

There are 10 Values according to our most sought after international motivational speaker, Fela Durotoye,of a true Nigerian ( I added notes for emphasis sake ); They are:
1) Make A Positive Impact
You've got to be a positive influence to your environment. You are specially modeled and packaged for your family,community,tribe,state,country,continent and the world!

2) Be A Solution Provider
The pen has its use, the computer,phone,car etc all have their uses! You are custom-made and sent into this world to provide a solution to a specific challenge and problem.

3) Be A Role Model
You are supposed to be a person of influence and power, to whom other people look upto. You are an inspiration to someone somewhere, they look up to you to fulfill their full potential.

4) Be The Best In All You Do
Be committed to excellence, there's no one like you. Try,work and develop yourself to be among the top 10% of high performers in your field.

5) Do The Right Things At All Times
Whatever you do today will speak for you in the future. Your actions today are seeds for your results tomorrow! Do it right, once, always!

Wow! We still have 5 more to go, but I'll give them to you tomorrow! Please, work on the above, "Live it, Spread it!".
