Five Easy Ways To Become Self-dependent In Life

June 08, 2019
Nobody owes you anything, it is up to you to fight for yourself in life. Depending on people all the time would eventually make you to be seen as a pest. Self-dependent people are respected people in the society. Not only that, being self-dependent is an important factor that helps to make a relationship stronger. In fact, self-dependent people live happily and survive in any society they find themselves compared to those that depend on others for a living.



However, some people find it difficult to live alone without their parents, spouse, family, friends. In this case, it is not only based on financial dependency alone, decision making is not excluded. There are several challenges that are faced by those that are dependent. The major challenge is that they have no full control of their life.

You will agree with me that taking full control of your life is as a result of you become a self-dependent. It doesn’t only give you total control of your life but also make you become a happier person in the society. I will explain 5 ways on how you can become self-dependent. In a relationship, you don’t need to depend fully on your partner for a living. In fact, it is not reasonable to keep requesting for money, what-to-do, help from your partner every time you are in need of it. You just need to read this and practice it for you to become self-dependent within some months.

The following are ways to become self-dependent.


1. Acquire a high paying skill 

The first way to become self-dependent is to acquire high paying skill. With no doubt, it is difficult to see someone with high paying skills to be dependent on somebody else. However, for you to be able to become self-dependent; you need to get yourself a job. If you find it difficult to buy something on your own, it simply means you are financially dependent. Nevertheless, you need to work on yourself by learning skills that pay you high. Truth be told, you need to further your education or better still learn skills that are lucrative. If you don’t, there is no how you won’t be relying on your parents, partners, friends for money. 


2. Leave Your Comfort Zone


You need to leave your comfort zone if you want to become self-dependent. There are some people that are still living with their parents, they fully depend on them for a living. You need to struggle with others in the labour market by leaving your comfort zone. This is another way to be self-dependent. 


3. Meet people of like minds


The people you meet with can also determine whether you will be self-dependent or not. However, for you to be self-dependent, you need to surround yourself with people that motivate you. In fact, for you to become self-dependent you need motivation from serious-minded people. The type of friends you are moving with can also influence your lifestyle. Take for instance, if your friends keep giving you all that you need without teaching you how to become self-dependent. This is not good enough. In the future, they might not be there when you need them most. Hence, you need to meet with friends that motivate you to be independent for better future.....


4. Learn every day and be informative


Truth be told, if you get the rightful information, it will be difficult for you to be dependent on other people. Information is known to be powerful. However, information equipped you with the ability to make decision on your own and also exercise your self-dependence. Always endeavour to get the information and be updated on what is new.


5. Make decisions yourself


Another way to make yourself to be independent is to learn how to make a decision by yourself. Take a bold step to decide on what you want and try to solve any problem on your own without any assistant. There are times that you will need assistance but don’t let that stop your decision making.

To become self-dependent in life is a choice. Unless you want to continue begging for crumbs from people who have established themselves, you have to take charge of your life now!

Modern Entrepreneurial Advice to all by Aliko Dangote, the African richest man

April 15, 2019


Alike Dangote

Africa’s richest man, Aliko Dangote, had declared that he had no personal house outside Nigeria.

The business magnate said this at the 2019 Mo Ibrahim Forum.

Dangote hinted that he avoids luxury things “because they distract and take time”.

Dangote said: “I don’t have any holiday home anywhere. I don’t have a house anywhere in abroad but I know people who are working for me have houses in London.”

“But you see", he continued, "a lot of people, even the younger ones need to be very careful because one of the biggest issues with us as Africans is that we spend our projected incomes."
“Once you start doing business [and] it starts doing well, but rather than for you to invest more in the business, you start spending thinking that profit will continue to come forever."

“There are ups and downs in business so you need to be very focused.”

Asked of his opinion on areas young entrepreneurs should invest in, Dangote replied: “The sectors to focus on now are ICT and agriculture. These are the 2 promising sectors.”

Even in the just concluded 2019 Tony Elumelu Foundation program, the sectors that had the majority of selected entrepreneurs were Agriculture and ICT, followed by Education/Training and others. This was because of the fact that the sectors looked more promising and profitable in this era. This is shown in the graph below:

factors that can influence your choice of career

May 21, 2018
Career achievers


Let me ask you a question. What is your intention for going to school? I discovered that most people go to tertiary institutions just to be referred to as a graduate. Many people just go and study any course they are been given. It’s not supposed to be so. Have a plan and a direction in your life and it will help you a great deal. Plan your life and follow your plan. That’s all I can say. There are a lot of factors that can influence your choice of career . some of which are outlined below.


Your Passion


The greatest influencing factor of success is to pursue your passion. Your passion is a burning desire that cannot be quenched except it has been achieved. Everyone has a unique vacuum he/she is to fill. When this vacuum is discovered, it arouses the passion for fulfillment. With passion, you work hard to make sure that your destiny is fulfilled. I met a young man who according to him, gets so annoyed whenever he hears that someone died and in most cases as a result of an avoidable carelessness. This aroused that passion to save lives and as such, he decided to study medicine and surgery in order to save as few as he can and as many as he can. Passion for saving lives was the propeller.

There was also another lady who had a dream of becoming a mouth of the poor and oppressed. She wanted to defend the law and stand tall for justice and this led her to study law. Passion initiated and influenced her choice. All the most celebrated football stars today were stared up by their passion for soccer. Some of them started as early as before age 10. You might have seen some of them in your area carrying their soccer boot every evening and Saturday morning and you might think that they do not have any plan for their lives. You might think that they are only wasting their lives but it is not so. These young boys know what they are pursuing. Their passion is simply what they are pursuing.

Do you think that there is anything that when you are been given the opportunity to do, you will do better than the people who did it previously? That could be your passion. The passion to do things better is the basic backbone of innovation and technology. Never pursue a career because other want you to. You will be the one spending half of your life at the job, therefore pursue your passion. Oprah Winfrey said, “make it your intention to serve through your life with purpose, you will have a blessed life”.

Your Advisers


Your advisers could also influence your choice of preferred career of study. When we are surrounded with godly and reasonable advisers, we tend to move in the right direction. For example, I planned studying electrical or mechanical engineering in higher institution but my brother advised me on the importance and relevance of Information Management Technology, which I adhered to his advice and currently, I owe it no regret.
Mind you, you are the person to choose the course of field that interests you since it’s your life and not anyone else. But in choosing your career, you must also give heed to advice from elderly ones who have gone before you. Their responsibility is just to advise you, not to force or compel you into what was not initially your intension.

May I use this opportunity to correct the error some parents make. Some parents tend to decide what their child would study. They believe that since they are the ones to bear the financial responsibility, therefore, the child must study whatever they tell them to. That’s wrong! even God who is the master of us all never compels anyone to do anything but rather permits us to make our own choice. Advice the child only and let him make his own choice because he will be the one facing the rudiments of that profession and not you. Young ones, listen to advice and take counseling but weigh them accurately and appropriately and then go with the right advice. Probably, it might be the same with your passion.


Solving a Problem


There are lots of problems in our environment and nation, ranging from sickness to poverty, and to inadequate technology as the list continues. Therefore trying to proffer solution to any of these problems could also influence your decision on your course of study. There is no environment without a problem and there is no problem without a solution. You could be the solution provider or problem solver.
Discovering a problem with the goal of solving it will make you more focused than you would have been because you are studying the course not just for the passion or because of advisers but because you want to solve a problem. In a bid to be a solution provider, there are three thing to take to heart viz; yearn, learn and then earn. To yearn means to have a strong desire. Desire that a problem could be solved through you.
Learn everything needed to provide solution to that problem. To learn means to gather knowledge about something. When you yearn, then you learn. Get a lot of relevant materials that will aid you in acquiring the needed knowledge and after you must have learnt enough and deployed your knowledge, the next thing is to earn. There has never been a solution provider at any level that never made money through his/her innovation. Many of the multi billion naira businesses that exist in our country today make their money by solving a problem. When you solve a problem, those who benefits from the solution you provide will in turn pay for the service.


Available Opportunities


Bill Clinton said, “the future is full of challenges but there are even more opportunities”. Another factor that could influence your choice of career and course of study is the opportunities available. This will need someone who has fore sight (the ability to see far) to be able to predict the opportunity that will be readily available soon so as to start preparing in time. Have you observed that things move in trend? Twenty years ago, engineers were most sort after because of their relevance in the society and industries.

Currently, people with computer skill and knowledge are now the most sort after. In the near future, another aspect of Information Technology will be relevant whereby if you rely on the skill you have currently without upgrading, you will become irrelevant and obsolete. For example, we are in the era of application development in which if you are good in any programming language you are good to go.

Opportunities abound everywhere and every time but it is only few that sees it. Also, in this 21st century, this few is bound to achieve the right choice of career.....

10 Practical Ways To Make Your Dreams and Careers Come True

May 17, 2018
My Career and Dream


If there is something we need in this life, it would be to 
live the life of our dreams and career. Dreams are what keeps us going in life. Those who don’t dream are only those who are dead. I am going to show you in details how you can make your dreams come true. No matter how difficult you think they are, they can be realized. It just comes with avoiding things that would cause your downfall.


If you have a dream and you are willing to make your dream a reality, here are ways to make it come true........


OUTLINE YOUR SET GOALS


Not having a goal is like driving without a destination, you will exhaust both yourself and the car too. Hence to begin, you need to have clearly defined goals, objectives that you want to achieve when you have set goal(s) as if you are driving towards a known destination.

DON’T BE DISTRACTED


This world is filled with distractions and attractions. Do not underestimate the power of distraction. Consider this: what do you think could happen to a driver who continues to look through his window while driving in a high way?
He may lose control or may be hit by another vehicle. So when you are riding on the high way to reach your goal, always avoid being distracted or attracted to anything that will slow down your pace or at worst stop you. Distractions can come in many ways; it can come in form of associations or individual habits.




FINDING THE RIGHT ASSOCIATE


A good associate is like a co-pilot, he stays alert with you. Note that he is not a co-driver but a co-pilot, this is because when a driver is tired he pulls over at the Corner of the road and rest but when a pilot is tired he does not even think of pulling over or parking; he must reach his destination and hence both in his absence and presence a good co-pilot will provide the support needed.


So the need to associate with people having the same frame of mind cannot be overemphasized. Associating with people who are already where you want to be will make you live and behave as if you have achieved your goals.




LIVE IN THE FUTURE


“To catch a monkey you need to act like a monkey” so says an African proverb, yes indeed you need to learn how to jump and dive. You need to start thinking every day as if you have achieved goals and dreams.

MAKE A LIST OF HUDDLES



After outlining your goals, you can also make a list of things that can possibly stop you from achieving your goals. This is necessary because anyone who fights a battle without a well-defined enemy might be in for an unusual surprise. Hence outlining and understanding problems are the key to solving them. Outlining them will help you tackle them with the right weapon.


WORK ON YOUR SET GOALS



Goals are not investments where you just put your money and watch it grow. It requires daily attention if it is to be attained, every work has tools which make it possible to be done. For example, if you are trapped in a dense jungle you may need a cutlass and a GPS in other to find your way home, selecting the right tools can help you achieve your dreams and career. Imagine what could happen to a student who ought to write a biology exam but has been practising only chemistry, it is necessary that one attains a level of balance in order to achieve one's set goals.

BE HUMBLE AND DO NOT CREATE ENEMIES


If you defecate on the road while embarking on a journey, definitely you will meet flies while returning. Do not step on people while you climb your social ladder, this is so because successful people need help from every other person.”One thing is somersaulting, another thing is landing properly“. when you get to the top, there is nowhere else to go except down. Hence if ever you created enemies while climbing, these ones may get back at you when you slide a little bit off the top. They may even drag you down totally instead of helping you.

BE PREPARED FOR UNFORESEEN OCCURRENCES



Many a men say: “I wish I could see tomorrow” hence do not expect everything to go as you have planned, unforeseen occurrences has been a constant part of the human history, hence preparing for it and knowing that it may happen not only helps you to deal with it but also makes you not to feel too disappointed when it happens and hence quit.

USE YOUR PAST TO CREATE A BETTER FUTURE


A good driver will always consider his side mirror, not because he is driving backwards but because he wants to get a balanced view of the road and understand how best to drive, likewise our pasts or mistakes should be used as warning examples and help us to create a good future.


DON’T GIVE UP

It is as simple as that, yet very difficult. If you apply the above-given suggestions, it may be very difficult for you to quit. Also if you know where you are heading, problems will not make you quit, setbacks will only even make you even stronger.


Remember! the value of gold appreciates; only when it has been refined in a furnace, a good captain is made not on a calm sea but on a very rough sea.

Problems and difficulties can only make you stronger, SEE YOU AT YOUR CAREER GOAL.

Blogging Career strategies and Tips......

May 03, 2018
Blogging world

One writes blogs to be read and express what is on one's mind. However, unless you promote it, you are not going to get a lot of readers. Here are some tips on how to go about it.


A blog is an outgrowth of the power of expression and reaches, that Internet technology offers individual users. People have a right of expression and opinion, and they can exercise their right in the truest sense, through a blog. Having been a blogger myself, in the past, I know how disappointing it can be when you write a great post and there are hardly any people to read or comment.



Blogging Strategy


Blogs provide an insight into the lives of so many people. The blogosphere is a great community of people who love to share their experiences and understanding. To become a part of it and promote your blog, you need to learn to share useful information, while appreciating good content through commenting. Even brickbats are welcome, as for every writer and blogger to get better, encouragement and criticism from his readers are necessary.

The Internet is an organically growing network and to gain a wider audience for your blog, you need to understand how information reaches its users. 


There are two ways in which information spreads on the Internet. One is through links on web pages and the other is through search engines and news feeds. So, to promote your blog, you need to have a clear-cut strategy planned out, about the kind of content you are going to generate, your target audience, and how you are going to make search engines, forums, and other sites take notice of your web presence.


Click here for more business and career tips


There are many technical ways of increasing the probability of people taking notice of your site and they do work, but ultimately, what is going to make them come back again is focused, clear, and thought-provoking content. Keep in mind that unless there is quality content, presented smartly, all the promotion techniques are useless. They are things that work, only after you have generated interesting content regularly. So, blog daily and blog useful information that people need.



Promotion Tips


To understand how to gain more readers, study the ways in which icons of the blogosphere do it. Once upon a time, they were lonely writers who wanted to be heard, like you, before they got international acclaim. Learn what it takes, to convert your blog into a mouthpiece. Study the techniques that they employed and the quality of content, as well as its presentation. That will give you a lot of hints.

Here are some ways in which you can promote your blog for free.


 With online advertising facilities like Google Adsense, you can earn while you blog too. Whatever be your intention, be it monetization or freedom of expression, the blog promotion techniques that I share here will certainly help in bringing more visitors. These are standard techniques, using which, one can spread the word and links, leading to your blog pages.



Social Networking and Online Forums


Social networking sites like Facebook, MySpace, and Twitter are places where people create communities and effectively share and broadcast information. Posting links to your blog articles of relevance on communities who have people interested in the topic will bring in readers. If you have a tech blog, then online forums on various websites are a great conduit for promotion. Post information on these forums and request them to visit your page for more.


RSS Feed

Submit your blog to RSS feeds, which are an online stream of updates about fresh information generated on the Internet. In case, you are not self-hosting, your host will have its own RSS feed, which can be useful. In case you are self-hosting, there are a lot of online RSS sites that collect and share links. Use them to your advantage. 

Another 'on page' tool, which you can use is a facility which enables instant sharing of the blog on networking sites, by bookmarking them. You can also enable the facility of emailing your article on the page itself. Get social plug-ins for Twitter and Facebook, installed on every page.



Connect and Comment

One simple way to be accepted in the blogging community and be read is to read and comment on other people's blogs. Share links to blogs that you personally find interesting, who will return the favor.

It will take months of consistent, fresh, and focused content creation, along with efforts to promote it, to get the first trickle of visitors regularly following you. Ultimately, what will make them stay is quality content.

Developing yourself in your chosen career field

April 30, 2018
A laughing career man


Athletes are made in the gym, artistes in the studio, have you got a gym for refining your talent?

If you think you are going to achieve anything worthwhile without hard work, you are making a mistake.

No idea will work unless you are ready to do the work.
Every achievement in life comes with a price, and the price of greatness is the greatness of the price you have to pay for it.

This article is specially meant for those who are yet to align their preoccupation with their dream and passion, and also to encourage those who are hardworking but are getting bored of their chosen career simply because success seems not to be forthcoming.

It is to open your eye to the realization of the foundation upon which the principles of success are built and for you to take charge of what you want to become in life.
The ultimate aim is to open your mind to the reality of greatness by helping you to put success in the right perspective. This can only be achieved if you get to read this article to the end and decide to make use of the suggestions in it.

The common denominator among every achiever in all callings is: they spend more time in their vocation to perfecting and refining their skills and craft, they are all committed to continuous improvement, and they all have a place that can be called their training ground where they work relentlessly daily. A place where they are made (Talent Workshop/Factory).

The studio, library, laboratory, gym, workshop, internship, pitch, camps, seminars, workshops, etc. are the training ground for refining talents and building careers.
Without the studio, we can’t have great singers, and without the laboratory, inventions are impossible. Without a primary environment where you continually refine your skill, you have no hope of extraordinary achievement in life.

“Your training environment where you commit yourself daily to refining your skills and inventing yourself is the first requirement to achieve greatness in life.”

I was listening to an interview held with a young popular star on HipTv some years ago; he said he spends more time in the studio than any other place. I was however not surprised because that’s one of the unique traits of the achiever in all vocation, – they spend more time in the place of their primary assignment. Spending more time on your primary assignment is what will pave the way for you in your chosen career.

Usain Bolt, Michael Phelps, Tyger wood, Serena Williams, Linda Ikeji, Tony Robbins, to name a few, Just think of anybody who is succeeding in his/her career, you’ll find out they are committed to what they do. If you want to succeed exceptionally, make up your mind to be committed to your vocation.

Find out what you’ll love to do if you are yet to have one and decide to acquire all necessary training in it regardless of your present ability or knowledge or experience. Engage yourself in every activity associated with your career; you must spend enough time to train yourself in acquiring the skills that make up your profession, that is what it means to develop yourself.

Success in life is about discovering where your training ground lies and preoccupy yourself with the activities that are essential towards the realization of your goal. It is the focus, hard work, discipline and persistence that produce the great ones.

You Create your own world: Unlocking your Potential Career

April 22, 2018
My potentials
Perhaps the greatest discovery in human history is the power of your mind to create the aspects of your life. Everything you see around you in the man-made world began as a thought or an idea in the mind of a single person before it was translated into reality.

Everything in your life started as a thought, a wish, a hope or a dream, either in your mind, or in the mind of someone else. Your thoughts are creative. Your thoughts form and shape your world and everything that happens to you.
The great summary statement of all religions, philosophies,
metaphysics, psychology and success is this: “You become what you think about — most of the time.” Your outer world ultimately becomes a reflection of your inner world, and mirrors back to you what you think about. Whatever you think about continuously emerges in your reality.

Many thousands of successful people have been asked what it is that they think about most of the time. The most common answer given by successful people is that they think about what they want, and how to get it most of the time.

Unsuccessful, unhappy people think and talk about what they don't want most of the time. They talk about their problems and worries, and who is to blame, most of the time. But successful people keep their thoughts and conversation on the topics of their most intensely
desired goals. They think and talk about what they want most of the time.

Living without clear goals is like driving in a thick fog. No matter how powerful or well engineered your car, you drive slowly, hesitantly, making little progress on even the smoothest road.

Deciding upon your goals clears the fog immediately and allows you to focus and channel your energies and abilities. Clear goals enable you to step on the accelerator of your own life and leap ahead rapidly toward achieving more of the things you really want.

5 Simple Strategies To Boost Your Career

April 18, 2018


Career lifestyle


If you feel working at your current job is not enough and you feel your career needs a boost, you can do something about it. Having a job that pays the bills and being good at it is important, but that is just one phase of your career. Soon enough, you will long for more than a pay check. You will want opportunities to fully express your potentials and abilities. When you find yourself at such points, below are five strategies that you will find to be helpful.



1. Identify your goals:

Many people do not have goals when it comes to their career. All they probably wanted was to acquire the necessary qualifications in school to enable them work in a particular profession. This implies that their main motive is to simply earn to meet their needs. While that is not wrong, there is more than surviving. To truly boost your career, you need more than aimless moves in life. Take some time and write out what you will like to achieve in the course of your career. It will help sharpen your sense of direction. It can also help you identify opportunities when they show up which you may not have been able to see before.


2. Assume full responsibility for your life: 

There is one thing that you have complete control of, and that is your life. You are the CEO of your life. One difference between successful and mediocre professionals is their response to situations. Mediocre professionals consistently absolve themselves of any wrongdoing while pointing accusing fingers at others. When you assume responsibility for your life, you not only acknowledge your fault when things go wrong, but you also have the mindset that if you will succeed or not, it’s up to you. It means you now realize that the key to your success is in the hands of nobody but yours.


3. Acquire some new training and skills:

Today, for every one professional at a workplace, there are ten more that are ready to take over that position should anything go wrong. Why? Because people with similar skills are constantly on the increase. To make yourself indispensable, you need to continually acquire new skills and professional ratings that would improve your resume. One of the worst mistakes anyone can make in this era is to settle down with the belief that their current skill set and training is enough. Wise professionals know this and even set a new timeline for when they’d acquire new skills and training.

4. Tackle a problem everyone avoids:

In every organization, there are certain problems that everyone wants to avoid for various reasons. Solving these problems is often important to the growth of the organization.

The Secret of Billionaires

February 18, 2018


A Potential Top Businessman

The major secret of billionaires is their ability to find solutions to the challenges of humanity. All of them created solutions that brought the billions. Presently, Bill Gates is spending millions of dollars in search of renewable energy. By the time he finds one and become a major player in the electricity industry, we will say he is lucky. But we forget that he didn't pray for financial breakthrough, he only found a solution to a global problem.


Wealthy people don't necessarily look for money, they create solutions, and money will follow them! Larry Page and Sergey Brin went all out to help humanity find things faster on the internet, and billions of dollars followed them. Mark Zuckerberg created platforms for socialization, and over $71 billion followed him. Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak went all out to reduce the size of computer. What problems are you solving for humanity?


Many spend weeks on the mountain praying for financial breakthrough without knowing what to do to be rich. They just want to be rich anyhow. It doesn't work that way. Real wealth comes through solving problems. Real wealth comes when we take a critical look around us, see the challenges that surrounds us, and proffer solutions to them.

One of the major reasons why millions of Africans live below the poverty line is our belief that magic wands will suddenly mint money for us. How many cups of mustard seeds did Mark Zukerberg eat that made him an 'instant' billionaire? How many bottles of anointing oil did Jeff  Bezos drink that turned him into an overnight owner of Amazon?

This is how potential billionaires pray: "Dear God, Nigeria has electricity problem and I want to solve it. Lord, baptise me with fresh ideas on how to solve this problem, and connect me to the right partners to make it happen. Thank you Lord." God will definitely inculcate creative ideas into their minds.

Unfortunately, this is how majority of Africans pray: "Oh Lord, I command anyone who said that I will not prosper to collapse and die by fire!" Another will say: "Lord, I need financial favour. I need divine connections. I need financial breakthrough urgently. Lord send money to me today." When God listens to these prayers sometimes, I believe He will look down from the balcony of heaven and wonder why we failed to understand that wealth creation opportunities surrounds us.


*I'm not belittling prayer, but most of us pray amiss*; I pray myself.


Dear friend, it is time to change your thinking and prayer pattern. Stop looking for shortcut to the top, start looking for the problems you can solve for humanity. Money is actually a reward for solving problems for people. Keep soaring!

Ability To Speak Second Or Multiple Languages And Career Prospects

October 24, 2017



In the global economy, one of the most valuable traits an employee can possess is the ability to speak a second or multiple languages.

2. Distinguishability

3. Relationship Building


Being able to speak a second or third language transcends spoken dialogue. The skill enables you to relate to different cultural groups in a more personal manor. Speaking to someone in his or her own language helps break down barriers and allows everyone to feel more comfortable and confident. This type of dialogue and relationship building is crucial in any business setting.

This can lead to more sales, better service and stronger interactions with colleagues.
