Live Your Dreams

Do you have a dream to become rich? Do you have little money you want to invest and let it grow? Do you want to transform your numerous contacts to network that can fetch you money? If so this is for you šŸ‘‡

The Jordan rule is real, multiple streams of income is the surest way to building fortune. As we all know, the major impediments to creating streams of income include access to capital and risk exposure. Often times we have great ideas on paper but reality has shown us things are not always what they seem.

But here is a great news, with little or no capital you can have your multiple streams of income and with little or no risk exposures you can now live your dreams… All you need are contacts on bbm, facebook, twitter, instagram, workplace, family, friendsĀ  etc moving them from the realm of ordinary contacts to network where everyone makes fortune.

People like to think that the opposite of fear is courage, when in fact the opposite of fear is faith. When you have faith to overcome your fears, you realize you had courage all along.” – Unknown

When you believe, you would come to realize that “nothing is impossible”.

I Don’t Have A Choice

I Don’t Have A Choice

” I Don’t Have A Choice”…This is a little lie we tell ourselves each time something happens, which could have been avoided, if we had made better choice(s).

Choices are different ways a particular event could have been handled and in real life situations it is absolutely impossible to have just one option. Choices could either be easy or hard. What many people call “No Choice” is simply the absence of “an Easy option”. Hard choices often require more energy, overcoming fears, humility, faith, lots of brain activities, controlled emotions, self-sacrifice, self-discipline and hope. Easy choices require less or nothing and often times it produces nothing extra-ordinary.

Two different houses were robbed sometime ago, after taking the possessions of the people in these two houses, the robbers demanded to sleep with the wives before their husbands, at gun point. The husband in the first house did not put up a fight, because he felt at gun point he had no choice, so he allowed them rape his wife and the robbers left. However, the husband in second house, resisted the robbers despite the guns, he was shot at and because of the screams and pandemonium that followed, the robbers fled without raping his wife.

After the incident, the first house never remained the same. The husband could not look at his wife again neither could the wife forgive her man for allowing the robbers to have her, they divorced after some time and the kids were shared.Ā  In the second house,Ā  though the man now limps, his wife and his kids love and respect him more, he became the hero of his family and a confidant of his wife because he made the hard choice.

Yes it is not easy to make the hard or tough choices but then it will always set you apart.

Many people complain about their current jobs but still they don’t resign, telling themselves, ‘I have no choice'; many are trapped in a bad relationship and they hang on, saying, ‘I have no choice'; some keep doing shameful things and they know it is shameful but they tell themselves, ‘I have no choice'; someone insults you and you fight back, saying, ‘I have no choice'; all my friends are bad, giving my life to Christ will make me look silly, see ‘I have no choice’…

Dear reader, we all have choices and because a choice is hard doesn’t mean it doesn’t exist.

Heroes, Legends, Martyrs, Extra-ordinary people, Successful entrepreneurs, World leaders, great icons have all made the hard choices many times in their lives and if you intend to be amongst them you have to learn to start making some tough choices too. Everything in life requires making choices but for the best things of life, you need to make the hard choices. Take the bold steps, make the right choices no matter how difficult they might seem and life itself will reward you.

Limitations

Limitations

“God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change; courage to change the things I can; and wisdom to know the difference”. Reinhold Niebuhr (1892-1971)

Limitation is the act of limiting or the state of being limited. A restriction; a boundary, real or metaphorical, caused by some thing or some circumstance. An imperfection or shortcoming which limits something’s use or value. For the purpose of understanding I will like to divide limitations into two; Natural Limitations and Artificial Limitations.

In 2010 when I started this Selahs Idea, a friend, Lorielle, wrote me from America, seeking advice. She wrote about how she so much wants to go into modelling but because she is short, she thinks she wouldn’t make it. My advice to her then was that, “the truth is, height is essential when it comes to modeling but so also are other things, carriage most especially. Though she can’t do anything to her height again but then she can perfect her carriage…people only notice what you put before them.” Now she is a doing good for her self as a model and media presenter.

image

Natural limitationsĀ  are restrictions you have no power over like your height, your place of birth, family background, your past etc. These are things you cannot change, these are things that you have to live with but one thing you have to ensure is that they don’t change your dreams. If you as a person can accept your natural limitations and look beyond them, others will accept you for who you are. Earl Boykins was just 5.5feet and he was one of NBA greatest, what he lacked in height he made up for it in skills. Some people will say you have to be a pretty boy to be an actor but I don’t think Segun Arinze is, but he is sure a fantastic and accomplished actor. Bottom line, know what you can’t change, work round it so that it doesn’t change your dreams . For every deficiency you have, naturally you will have other super-efficiencies, it is left to you to identify them and make them compensate for things you lack.

Artificial or Pseudo Limitations are those restrictions that really don’t exist, often they are the making of our imagination and our fears. Like a friend would say, “I would have loved engineering if not for maths”, and I keep telling him that’s a lame excuse, if you know mathematics is your weakness then why not channel more time into knowing it. That simple! With artificial limitations, these are restrictions you can surmount either by overcoming the fears that initiated them or by dedicating more time, effort and energy to overcoming the limitation, in order to keep your dreams alive. Joyce Meyer wrote “…It is never too late to start something new”. If your limitation is due to knowledge gap, it is not too late to acquire that knowledge. If yours is financial, you have to understand the beauty of starting small even with the least of things. Whatever sets an artificial limits before you, master it, break free, let nothing hold you back from chasing your dreams… not fears, not deficiencies.

image

Your dream is worth fighting for, let nothing standing in your way. Things you can’t change, work round them; things you can change, change them fast…time waits for no one. Time is one limitation all of us have to deal with and the solution to that is “there is no better time than now, if it has to be done, then it is better now than later”. Keep your dreams alive.

How I Take Care of Those Creatures

A friend was sharing his experience sometime ago and I believe there is a lot we can all learn from it.

He said when he was serving (Youth Corp Service) in Jigawa State (Northern part of Nigeria; desert, limited rain, high humidity, hot Sun and very few water sources), whenever they need water, they have to walk about 500 meters to get the nearest borehole, so often times he buys from Water-hawkers.

On this day he needed water desperately but no water-hawker was passing, so he decided to go and fetch.Ā On his way he saw this lizard looking like it was about to die of dehydration and he thought to himself, “how do this creatures get water in this place”? He thought and thought but he couldn’t come up with an answer then he dropped the thought.

After fetching his water, on his way back some over 400meters away from the borehole, he tripped and his bucket fell spilling all the water. He was so frustrated and annoyed with himself but there was nothing he could do than to go back to the borehole and fetch again. While he was returning from his second trip at that same spot where he tripped, he saw that same lizard drinking from the water he spilt that had now formed a small pool.

“Psalm 147:9 He provides food for the cattle and for the young ravens when they call.”

He said, and he then heard a voice in his head that till today he can never forget, the voice said “that is how I take care of those creatures and if I can do that for them how much more you? “. He said since that day, he takes his mistakes and failures with grateful heart just as he takes his blessings and testimonies, and he always trust in God no matter what.

image

Lessons I took from his experience :

1. When you make mistake(s), don’t beat yourself up over it. It is always to teach you lessons that you might not get without being an example. But when you make the same mistake continuously then it simply means you have made a choice not to learn.
2. God will always care for His own irrespective of size, position, economic situations or odds. If it takes some to lose so that His owns can gain, God won’t hesitate (Israelites Vs Egyptians).
3. Because you cannot answer a question doesn’t mean the answer does not exist, after all the mysteries of life are such that it reminds us that there is a God whose logic we can’t explain.
4. Some steps are preordained. That’s why the Bible said everything works together for good, for those who serve God. Before you even thought of asking God for something he has already put in motion series of events that will make sure you get your answer. That is why He is awesome.
5. Give thanks at all times, even when it seems it didn’t go according to your plans because the one with the master plan knows better. He who fails to be grateful is already a great fool.

Matthew 6:26 Look at the birds of the air: they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they?

Letter to My Sons

Dear Sons,

I hope this letter meets you well. I am sure by now you have had lots of unanswered questions, lots of thoughts to ponder over and lots of mysteries the knowledge of book cannot solve. Well, I am here for you but before you get all excited, let me point out to you that I have not come to tell you how to live your life or how to avoid all the problems that comes with living and neither have I come with a one-solution to all life problems however if you are patient to read, you will see life in a whole new clearer perspective.

image

Sons, life is not easy neither is it fair but life is still what we make it. Whatever life dishes you, remember that doesn’t define you but how you handle it, says a lot about you. If life gives you lemons, boys, make lemonade; if life gives you rock use it to build good shelter; but if life gives you all the good things at first time of asking, my babies please don’t get cocky, invest as much as you can, help people as much as you can and never forget to be thankful as much as you are prayerful.

My Chaps, love is a complex thing. I pray, you both will find a woman that will love you, like a mother loves her child. Movies and Novel will paint love for you in different colours, learn to understand that fiction is different from reality. When wealth comes a million and one ladies will promise heaven on earth, they will throw at your feet the best of behaviours but like the smoke in the can, if you are observant you will see their true colours. You will fall for beauty, your heart will be confused by what your eyes see but boys, never leave your head out, when it comes to making the final choice of whom to marry.

I know I raised you well to have faith in God and in people but you also have to understand that though God will be faithful, people will not always be. My dears, “love all, trust few and wrong none”, as much as practicable. Always try to see the good in everyone, even when people wrong you, your first thought should be, “they must have their reasons”. Don’t be in haste to judge no matter how hurt or excited you get. Know that for every reaction their must have been an action. You will make enemies for sure, it is compulsory if you are on the path of success, but don’t let that give you sleepless nights, it is just natural.

As you must have learned that education will not answer all your questions, that is why I urge you never to stop acquiring knowledge wherever or whichever form it may come. Have mentors, read books, listen when people talk, meditate on everything you have learned and don’t neglect the words of God. I know you both have minds of your own but trust me, it is wise not to neglect the counsel of the elders. You will see people who are better than you, don’t despise them, rather move closer to them and see what you can learn. Even when these people occupy positions lower than yours never be too arrogant to stretch a hand of fellowship, you will be better for it.

Boys, I want you to always remember that when it seems no one is listening, their is always a God who is willing. No matter what tribulations or circumstances or storms life may throw your way never ever question the existence of God. If you read my stories very well you will realize I made my mistakes too but they made me wiser. My loves, you will make yours too, you will learn some lessons the hard way, your mistakes will come with consequences and yes some will make you wish you weren’t born but if you do not forsake God, He will come through for you and turn your mistakes to testimonies.

image

Finally my angels, know that you have different paths to follow but never forsake one another. Let nothing come between you; not money, not women, not status, not friends, not emotions, not religion, not conviction and not even life. When you are together, like a bunch of brooms you become formidable, difficult to breakdown and a team to reckon with. Love one another more than life and always have one another’s back. I know you have different characters, understand the uniqueness in your individualism, use it to your advantage, complement one another and let there be no cracks on the wall of your brotherhood.

I love you boys, I wish I can be with you forever, I wish I can always be there to set your feet on the right path but life wasn’t meant to be lived forever. I trust you will always make me proud. Love you more than life itself.

Your Dad.

GET YOUR SPENDING UNDER CONTROL

GET YOUR SPENDING UNDER CONTROL

‘Owe nothing to anyone-except for your obligation to love one another….’ Romans 13:8

image

If you think winning the lottery would solve all your problems, you couldn’t be more wrong! Almost half of those who become overnight millionaires end up bankrupt within a few years. Why? For a variety of reasons: bad business deals, extravagant living, crazy schemes, and fast-talking relatives. And here’s another one-a big one! Believing that they now have the Midas touch and that Lady Luck is on their side, they continue to gamble at an even higher level-and end up losing it all.

Try to understand this: unless you spend less than you earn, no amount of income will ever be enough! So if you’re wise, when you get a salary increase or an unexpected windfall you won’t adopt a more extravagant lifestyle. You’ll reduce your debt before it becomes an albatross around your neck that drowns you. No amount of income will be sufficient if your spending is not brought under control.

image

The only way to get ahead financially is to deny yourself some of the things you want and save for the future. If you don’t have the discipline to do that, you’ll always be in debt. Now, when the government gets into debt, they simply tax you. But when you get into debt-you’re on your own. That’s not how God wants you to live. True contentment doesn’t come from getting all you want, but by discovering the blessings you have been given and learning to enjoy them.

This should be your goal: ‘Owe no one anything-except for your obligation to love one another.’

Reasons You Cannot Be A Failure

Reasons You Cannot Be A Failure

We don’t try because we don’t want to fail. We are always looking for that safe haven; a place where we won’t be judged, where we would stay anonymous in case it didn’t work out, a place where we are not the cynosure of all eyes, hmm! Reason you didn’t try out for the football team, reason you didn’t write that book, reason you didn’t act on that great idea, reason you would not talk in class, reason you would not socialize, reason you would not take up that challenging task or job…but the truth is, one might fail,one might be woeful but not trying or quitting is the only thing makes one a failure.

image

You are probably wondering why I am so convinced you cannot be a failure? Well you will have to read the reasons below and I assure you will find every reason to be a success.

👉 No excuse is enough
No excuseĀ  or combination of excuses are enough to tell the tales of your lack of success. You want to look at those dependent on you and tell them you did not achieve certain heights expected of you because of some washed reasons? I am sure you wouldn’t want to, especially when you realized that you are not the only one exposed to these limitations. If others can surmount worse things why not you?

👉 You have enough tools and people to guide you
You have enough Tools and People to guide and shape your life. In this era of internet and information at your finger tips, you can hardly go wrong (Google is your friend). You also have people who have tried and failed, before becoming a success; their biographies abound, mentorship, motivational write ups, books, research works, consultants… Come on without even trying too hard you are bound to succeed with all these.

👉 The whole world is watching
The world is watching and the world is waiting. Aside from those who are directly dependent on you, most are just on the sidelines waiting to see what will become of you; classmates, colleagues, friends you grew up with, younger ones looking up to you, older ones looking down on you, teachers who are eager to make you a reference point in their lectures and people you hardly see or know who added you on Social Media just to monitor your progress… Oh! now you know, it’s the whole world.

👉 You don’t want to be a failure
You don’t want to be a failure, that I am sure of. Why? You wouldn’t be reading this if you want to be. In reality, no sane person wants to be a symbol of failure, regret and bad example, though rather than this motivating people to succeed it often leads most to the point of not trying. However, the fact remains that no one wants to be a failure. And if that is right of you too, you are sane for sure, and I am sure you are not like those that use it as an excuse not to act. Rather let it be your pivot, pushing you not to give up on what you believe.

👉 To Fail is not an end in itself
To fail is not an end in itself, quitting is. To fail is just one of the series of occurrence between the point of conceiving an idea to the point of achieving success. All that happens in-between include fails, rejection, humiliation, false success, insults etc and it will go on till you succeed. However, if you quit without getting to the success part, then you become a quitter and a failure. The truth is, it doesn’t matter how many times you have failed, if you do not give up, if you are not ashamed to acknowledge the fact that you have failed but you have resolved to keep moving forward , if you are not deterred by the boos from the crowd, if you can look pass the current mountain in front of you…you will eventually reach the success point.
