10 Values of a True Nigerian
Hey great Champs…
You have probably come across the 10 value creed from one of my greatest mentor and special friend, Mr. Fela DUROTOYE. Well…I decided to let you have my thoughts on Fela’s 10 values creed. I am committed to abiding by this creed every single day for the rest of my life……It should bless you…….read on
1. MAKE A POSITIVE IMPACT.
As human beings we need to come to the understanding that everything we do should have impact just as there are consequences to every action and yes….every inaction too. With this in mind, we should be conscious of the effect of every and anything that we do directly or indirectly. Seek to impact your world positively, let there be positives gains for your world because what you have done, endorsed or promoted…..Make a positive impact!
2. BE A SOLUTION PROVIDER.
You will be either be a solution to problems or you will the problem that others are seeking solutions for! Hmmmmm….. I’ll rather be the solution provider. It’s simple; when you seek for and provide solutions, you create value for the solution and value creates wealth…… look all around you and you can see great people that are providing solutions to different problems or needs across the world…… Be a solution provider.
3. BE A ROLE MODEL.
One of the greatest issues in Nigeria today is the scarcity of Genuine Role models. People who will stand by what is right no matter who or how many others are doing or promoting what is wrong. Understand that you have a responsibility to show direction to the world around you. The things you do or so would shapen or model those you know and the millions that you don’t but have access to you indirectly…….Be a role model.
4. BE THE BEST AT ALL YOU DO.
I usually say to people I talk to or coach that they can go beyond the ordinary by doing the extra ordinary…they can even go further by doing that extra ordinary in an extra ordinary fashion or way. Simply put give your ultimate best to every and anything you do…It will stand you out!!! Commit from today to …Being the best at all you do.
5. DO THE RIGHT THING AT ALL TIMES.
Yes, I know…you are human and you are entitled to some measure of failure…yea????? Lol but hear me now…..the ease of attaining integrity and honour comes from simply simply simply deciding to do the right thing at all times regardless of how comfortable or attractive it may be to do the wrong thing….remember you are a role model, recall you have positive impacts to make……..Do the right thing at all times.
6. VALUE TIME.
Unto all men, rich or poor, tall or short, sick or healthy, single or married…..time is given! One of the greatest resource ever! The understanding of time is sheer wisdom. When you value time, you will ensure the best of you passes through that time at every single point.
7. CARE AND SHOW RESPECT.
The greatest people are the ones that show care for their world and respect the people and values around them…… Respect and care would take you further than your skills or competencies ever would… As a matter of fact, its wisdom to care and it draws a response of deep loyalty…what’s that saying again? People don’t care how much you know until they know how much you care….Care and show respect.
8. CONSCIOUSLY BUILD A GREAT LEGACY.
What would you like to be remembered for? What would you want the mention of your name to be synonymous with?? Ask yourself these questions and seek to act out accordingly to what your response is….Consciously build a great legacy.
9. LIVE A LIFE OF INTEGRITY AND HONOUR.
After reading points 1 -8,what more can be said to impress upon you the worthiness of having integrity and hence honour. It’s the essence of every human being. …you cant stress enough the importance of personal integrity in the place of business or the market place..Live a life of integrity and honour
- 10. MAKE YOUR FAMILY, YOUR NATION, YOUR CONTINENT AND YOUR GOD PROUD.
May your home, your country and most importantly your God be proud of you….. let humanity celebrate your times on earth and feel the impact of your thoughts, words and deeds.
God bless you as you keep walking the pathway of Champions
