#ONMONDAY: Slow but Steady

Whatever your endeavour is, always be original.
Be yourself! If you think you’re slow, it is because you compare your potentials with that of another.

We are all unique in our capabilities. He did it quickly is different from he does it better.

The more you get drawn into direct comparison there’s always a chance you’re going to come short.

Don’t mind an early starter, you can pick up on what they miss while rushing.

   Toll your path and may be you will do it better because you use your hindsight while they don’t. 

Keep winning.                             
Good morning

#onMonday: potential vs willpower

Potential is tool for success but no guarantee of success in itself.

Every man virtually has it in him/her. The will to unlock it is the key to its realisation.

Many fall in the face of challenges because they overwhelmed themselves by telling themselves they’re not ready nor have what it takes.

What it takes is getting off your back side and question your will-power.    

Remember:
The problem is not as much of whether you have the potential to do big things but whether you can ask of your self the big question and convincingly answer sure I can!

Good morning

#OnMonday: Challenging the Obstacle

OnMonday: Challenging the Obstacle

The story of the Bull
Have you witnessed a bull fight before?…I will take that as a ‘Yes’

When a Bull is challenging an adversary, it doesn’t just go on and on in attacking….what does it do?

A bull attacks, withdraws, and charge again!
The second charge is always an improvement on the first; the third stronger than the second……and it goes on and on until it is defeated or it triumphs!

In the end, even the conquered bull is a hero and that makes it better than you….that challenges once and withdraw even with your competence and potentials.

There’s half a chance from the go that you can surmount a challenge and that’s why you took it on in the first instance.

Know that you will lose more if you stop now!!!
Think of time spent, sapping energy, option forgone already and you will see reasons to demand more from yourself.

SegunOnMonday Dancing Opportunities

I was in this investment office lastweek and before I could discuss my reason for been there, I saw this quote on the wall:

“Opportunity dances with only those it meets on the dance floor”

Need not say much but it is best to put yourself in vantage position awaiting the right chance.

This is a step beyond mere hope and it always put you in good stead when presented with chance.

The opportunities will come! They always do but how ready are you to snap them up?

Be positive and have a great week!

Congrats to my Friends at University of Westminster that just finished their masters program. Thumbs up mates!

#OnMonday: Impossible is Temporal

SegunOnMonday: Impossible is temporary

Impossible will continue to be in existence to the end of time,
It is a word used for a yet to be surmounted challenge not a bar to take on a task or challenge.

Before the first craft landed in space – going there was deemed impossible.

100 years ago, talking to another person 1000 miles through the air was impossible.


“Never think there is anything impossible for the soul. It is the greatest heresy to think so. If there is sin, this is the only sin; to say that you are weak, or others are weak.”

Swami Vivekananda

The word impossible is therefore just a public declaration that you will be the first to conquer the challenge.
If you believe in yourself why follow weak minds who did not even try before joining the chorus of impossibility.

Think about it!

Good morning

#OnMonday: Longterm Success

SegunOnMonday:

Sometimes some people doubt their very essence when fail to set mind to task on what needs to be achieved.
In the sight of this you lose ample resources and you waste opportunities that come begging in the name of not knowing what to do.

You find your idleness seized by matters seemingly less productive and that will cumulatively breed frustration.

Though many times all you can do is try, but it is worthy if you have your sight on the ultimate objective. This should not deter you even when unwanted pebbles on the way try to dislodge you.

Charles Noble said:

“You must have long term goals to keep you from being frustrated by short term failures”

My friend, remember that the bottom is always crowded ’cause it is easy to get there.
Aim for the top. There’s plenty of room there and there are so few at the top it is almost lonely there.

Moving up!
Good Morning

OnMonday: Hesitation

SegunOnMonday: Hesitation

Many times we come at crossroads to make decisions, that characterize the person we are or try to become. These decisions are consequentially positive or negative on many occasions varying on the expectation of the initiator or the person at the receiving end.

But on one side is art of hesitation, not part of the decision but influences the result tremendously.

Hesitation does more harm than good. When a matters needs determination, consider the probable outcome of your reaction to it, look at alternative and see if the result is acceptable.

To seek a counsel is nothing to be ashamed of not to seek one when you could is foolhardy.

Above all, whatever you’ve got to do, do it quick.

Thomas Huxley believes the same too when he said:
“Make up your mind to act decidedly and take the consequences. No good is ever done in this world by hesitation”.

Good morning, All the best!

SOM: Hardwork

SegunOnMonday:

The difference between a job and a work is beyond the dictionary.

A Job is something you do not necessarily to make ends meet but an occupation that makes you fulfilled and sometimes come with incentives in form of pay.

While a work is an occupation that you do to make ends meet without it necessarily been you dream engagement.

Many times a poor planning culture makes people end up being in a work longer than they’re meant to.

The effect of this is that people are left dissatisfied with what they do at the long run.

“Choose a job you love” says Confucius, “and you will never have to work in your life”

Enjoy the rest of your day!
