With Covid19 wreaking its havoc across the world, it has exposed the underbelly of nations on not been proactive nor ready for this scale of disruption across the globe. It’s shocking to know that the worst hit is the 1st world nations with the United States accounting for 26% of the infection rate alone and 14% of the global deaths as of today…
The hallway echoes with footsteps…The rooms pregnant with dark silence, the chairs looking gloomy…a shadow of useful past.
One after another, the chatter fades away, the smiles wither and the warmth turns to cold, the boisterousness gives way to hollowness and despair.
A cherished history, the bonding memories are remembered in bitterness and anger…and the wind blows listlessly…willing for days gone by.
A hunger for fulfillment…a stirring for purpose give winds to the sails…and they sail off into the sunset seeking for glory and never to look back.
Lions don’t have to roar. There is power in silence, confidence, and persistence. Those who work don’t talk, and those who talk don’t work. Handle your business. Measure your efforts by results. Focus your time, energy, and activity on mastering and executing a plan. – Les Brown

Have you ever wondered why the Lion is regarded as the King of the Jungle? His brute strength? Skill? Or the number of kills?
Why can’t the Leopard, the Tiger, the Cheetah, and the Jaguar be regarded as King of the Jungle as well? They are all big cats that command territory and fear in the Jungle. Cheetah, the fastest animal deserves to be king right?

They are the go-to guys…everyone wants to hang around them, what they wear becomes the latest fashion trend, their opinions on issues is sacrosanct, they are the role models and mentors everyone wants.
According to Tim O’Reilly “Success in today’s world, whether of sports or business, requires assembling a team of people who can work together to achieve something extraordinary. And yes, to achieve something extraordinary, it helps that some of those Continue reading
In a nutshell, for every Naira and Kobo you earn and expend, do you have the record of it in a journal? If we take the position of, “oh it’s just a one-man business when we expand we would do it”. We have set ourselves up to fail. James Clear aptly captures it this way when he said, “Breakthrough moments are often the result of many previous actions, which build up the potential required to unleash a major change”. If previous actions build up the potential for a breakthrough, so also would previous inactions build up the potential for a major unchanged…NOTHINGNESS.
