Great morning Champions….
it’s a great day to be alive and yes another opportunity to do it better with God on your side. It has been a busy couple of months gone by and it sure doesn’t look like it is about to slow down. As we approach the half year mark, it’s a time for appraisal and goal resetting. How has the year been thus far? Speaking to many a number of great people who signed up to the Pathway of Champions Mentorship club, it has been such a honor helping my friends sharpen and shape their perspective of their vision and have another look at their strategy of deploying their mission in order to attain or achieve that vision. Today I want to share some of the things that I have discussed with my friends on the Mentorship Club.
- Have a huge desire to learn…. There is no way that anyone can get ahead in life if they are not learning something new. If they are not unlearn SOME things that they have known. If they are not learning new things about the old things that they already know. It’s a key to unlocking possibilities. Learning is acquiring knowledge and understanding, understanding is synonymous with direction and clarity. Clarity means that you can see your way forward through life. Learn from everything around you. Like I say, I either learn what to do or I learn what NOT to do. Either way I am learning.
- Sometimes you will do what you have to do before you do what you want to do……. At some point your passion won’t be paying your bills, at least not until you make it ”commerciable”. In that time period, while you are developing yourself and finetuning the skills and talents that come with your passion, you will find that you will have to work at a Job. My advice is that you seek to have a job that in one way or the other develops your capacity to deploy your passion even better. Make every part of your life journey count.

- Stay authentic……its easy to want to be a fela durotoye or a Jimi Tewe or Tara or Cobhams but guess what that is not who you are. They may inspire you or motivate you but they certainly are not there for you to clone them. You have to be YOU to be able to deploy your passion successfully. You are specifically wired and equipped for your assignment. Find what works with you and develop it to the best possible way that you can. When I started public speaking, I wanted to sound like everybody that inspired and it was confusing even to me. Lol. Imagine sounding like Paul Adefarasin with gesticulations like Fela Durotoye at the same time trying to be calm and suave like Lanre Olusola…..confusion!!! here is the secret, its just easier to be you..authenticity is attractive!
- Be clear about your long-term intention. I would say that understanding your long-term intention shapes and determines what you do in your now and short term. The short term would always present situations that can consume you in the now and has the potential of taking your eyes of your long-term goal. The way to stay on top of your game is to be very clear about your vision and always tie in everything the present to your vision. Let everything you do point you in the direction of your vision.
