Find a product inside your purpose

To prosper with the hidden gem inside you, all you need to do is find a product inside your purpose. Your product will automatically become a solution to the problem you were destined to solve. You were sent unto the earth loaded with solutions and the capacity to unleash your immense potential. One strange fact I must point out at this junction is this- everything that is of immense value is found underneath the earth’s crust.

Crude oil, gold, silver, diamond, topaz, and other precious stones are found beneath the earth’s crust, waiting to be exploited. All you need to succeed in life is hidden on your inside. The moment you dig deep, it will come forth in a massive torrent. Find the solution you were created to provide, Thereafter, you can begin to enjoy a fulfilling life of financial freedom.

Deposited within every individual, is a gift or talent. This beautiful gift or talent differs from one individual to the other. Some have multiple gifts and talents, while others have just one.

No matter, the gift or talent you have, always have the desire to align it with your purpose in life. This will, in turn, help to create a valuable product around the gift and talent.

While growing up, I discover I had this gift of writing. I could create content with ease and come up with ideas within seconds. As I became older, I learned about information product packaging and how one can market this information products for profit.

All I simply did, was attend seminars and training on Information product packaging, and the rest is history. Today, I enjoy some of the skills I have learned and the amazing gift within me keeps flourishing daily.

You too can explore the huge opportunity available within your unique gift and talent and start enjoying the same results. It’s a lot easier when you stay within your area of strength and gradually build on it.


Service is your secret to financial freedom

Service means you utilize every opportunity to give your talent, gift, and everything you have to the good of others. When you serve, you attract the best things in life. It’s not about money all the time. When you go through the biography of some successful men and women, one thing that stands out is the desire to serve. They didn’t put money at the front burner. When they served faithfully, other benefits began to flow in naturally.

When a business is set up primarily for profit-making, it becomes extremely difficult to achieve success. I love what Richard Branson the CEO of the Virgin Group said: “Never go into business purely to make money. If that’s the motive you’re better off doing nothing”

One of the primary reasons for going into any business is to fill a need. People have needs for different things. Whether its the need for food, the need for clothing or shelter, the need for education, or the need to have a hair cut.

These are specific needs, and they require specific services. If you see a need within your immediate environment that can be filled, all you can do is create a business out of it.

The intention may not necessarily be to make money but to provide value-added service for people. The money will flow in naturally as a product for services rendered. What we must understand about business is that without service, there can be no business. When you can serve people, they would be more than willing to pay you above what you would have charged.

The idea is to avoid greed for making quick money which oftentimes motivates certain individuals into specific businesses. Such businesses don’t last for long, as they soon fade away due to low patronage as a result of poor services been rendered to customers.

You may want to ask why virtually all companies have customer care service? The answer is simple. They value their customers and would be more than willing to satisfy them by providing a platform where they can channel all their complaints. This is a medium through which services can be improved and a relationship can be fostered.

Another vital reason why a business is created is for customers. Without customers, there can be no business. The secret of retaining customers is to provide them with service that would motivate them to keep coming back.

The market is becoming so competitive that businesses are looking for ways to improve their service delivery. Any single lapse by customer service may spell doom for any business that is aiming for the top.

Most businesses succeed via referrals from satisfied customers. The opposite is the case, as an embittered customer can tell a couple of friends about his or her experience in terms of service delivery. Those friends will end up telling their other friends and so the chain reaction continues.

Some amazing benefits of adopting value-added service to clients include: customer retention, increased productivity, increased profitability, and loyalty from customers. It may cost you a little to implement, but the benefits far outweigh the initial cost at the end of the day.


Discover the hidden talent inside of you

Serena and Venus Williams became household names before they turned 25, but that was before their father who loved lawn tennis had been careful enough to know that his daughters were born to become lawn tennis champions. He knew the treasure these little girls were carrying on their inside.

The day you can identify the gift on your inside, it will be impossible for you to become stranded in life. The reason why millions fail amid countless possibilities and opportunities is tied down to ignorance.

I will never forget the story of a man who went begging for bread when right inside his room was a check of $5,000 sent to him by an insurance company for claims due to him from his previous employer. He never knew how to read or write and he died without enjoying the benefit of his labor.

That is the same tragedy that occurs in the world daily, as thousands of brilliant and creative individuals die daily without utilizing the treasures lying on their inside. They go to the grave with ideas that would have liberated their entire generation from financial poverty and distress.

The first step towards living a meaningful life is to discover the hidden talent inside you. Everyone carries within them, a measure of gift and talent. These talents when discovered can be nurtured and utilized positively. It takes patience, hard work, and determination to harness your talent, but it is always worthwhile.

Today, the beautiful gift Richard Williams discovered in both Serena and Venus, 35 years ago, has blossomed into amazing talent. It all started from diligently looking out for that special spark, then carefully grooming it into something big.

Remember, it is not always rosy and smooth sailing, even when you are talented. Great athletes and talented individuals do go through dry spells. Patience, perseverance, and focus are the key attributes that will see you to the finish line.

talent alone is not enough

Talent alone is not enough to guarantee success in life

Talent is an inherent gift deposited in everyone at birth. You don’t struggle to become talented. it is something that is either innate, or you spend years acquiring it via deliberate practice or preparation. If you are talented, you are talented. All you need to do is develop the talent to suit the specific field of endeavor. Take singing, for example, some talented musical artiste doesn’t struggle to produce an album. They literarily release best-selling albums annually.  It’s a natural gift.

The late Pop icon Michael Jackson was recognized as a talented musician even at age 8. He was already going on stage with the Jackson 5 at such tender and singing with so much passion and confidence. That’s what talent helps the individual to accomplish. It gives you inner confidence. You can easily soar where others are struggling. 

It, however, takes more than talent to succeed in life. There are numerous examples of talented footballers who couldn’t fulfill their potentials in life. The likes of Mario Ballotelli,  Robinho, Adriano, and Ben Arfa showed a glimpse of their talents but they never got to the peak of their career. 

You need to be Self-disciplined to fulfill your true potentials in life. Lack of discipline is the number one reason why most talented individuals never got to excel in their chosen profession. Live a disciplined lifestyle and never compromise on certain standards if you truly want to maximize your talent. 

On the other hand, Good time management is crucial in ensuring that individual talent doesn’t go to waste. Time management is the process of meticulously scheduling your time between several activities that will impact positively on your productivity. There are 8760 hours in a year, and any time wasted in frivolities can never be recovered. 

Talent mixed with patience is an unbeatable combination. Developing your natural talent doesn’t happen overnight. Phil Foden is generally regarded as heir apparent to David Silva. He is so talented that Pep Guardiola, Manchester City Manager, in one of his press briefings said ” Phil Foden is the most talented player I have ever seen in my career as a Manager. His only problem is sometimes his manager doesn’t put him in the starting XI. Hopefully in the future that can improve.”  

There is little one can achieve in life without wisdom. One never rely on talent alone. There is a limit your talent can take you to. Wisdom is the right application of Knowledge. Knowing is not enough. Being talented is not enough. To succeed in your chosen career, you must apply wisdom daily. That is the more reason why mentoring is very crucial in building up talented individuals. A mentor will guide you through the journey of life and help you harness your talent. 

overcoming shyness

Shyness and how to overcome it

Shyness is not a strange phenomenon in today’s world. There are millions of people out there who have experienced it in their childhood or even adulthood. You can easily handle shyness with little effort and patience. In this article, I have listed seven practical ways to deal with it.

Make each day memorable 
Every day presents an opportunity for us to appreciate the goodness of life and make it worthwhile. The more we try to make our days special, the more we can manage this unpleasant habit. With this in mind, come out from your shell of shyness and enjoy each day to the fullness.

Do the unusual and experiment with new things 
One of the reasons why some individuals are going through this personality disorder is the fact that they keep on doing the same thing over and over again. They refuse to make new friends. On the contrary, people who stay indoors all through the week and never desire to do the unusual usually struggle to break away from it.

There is no way one can break free from the problem of shyness without doing away with norms. Experiment with new methods and make new friends. Change your daily routine and refuse to be predictable.

Be natural and don’t pretend to be someone else 
The moment you feel insecure about your personality and opt to pretend to be someone you are not, it will do you no good in your quest to be liberated from the pain of being shy. Consequently, there are lots of individuals who are struggling with their own identity.

Engage actively in something useful 
Although the task of overcoming shyness may seem daunting, it can be easily overcome with the right approach. In fact, there are lots of people who have successfully done so via engagement in outdoor activities. Sign up for volunteer roles in your locality. Join a local drama group. Join any gym or club near you. Above all, avoid isolating yourself when you are in the midst of a larger group.

Believe in yourself 
The lack of self-belief, can have a devastating impact on our personality and dampen our ability to relate freely with others. Never allow anyone to run you down or intimidate you. You are endowed with tremendous talents that are waiting to be exploited. Although, the issue is daunting, the sooner we believe we can overcome that hurdle, the better for us.

Others have overcome shyness-you too can 
One might be tempted to believe that these challenges are insurmountable. Some have even given up trying. On the contrary, this is an impediment that successful achievers have surmounted, and which is surmountable. The most crucial decision one can ever make in handling shyness is to face it squarely and resolve in your heart to overcome it just like others did.

Never allow the opinion of others to dictate your lifestyle 
Some individuals can get easily discouraged by the comments of others that they find it hard to relate with such people again. They subsequently withdraw into their shell and live like recluse instead of staying true to themselves.
