Peter Had Faith.

(Matthew 14:28-33)

On the sea was a storm. Jesus disciples were in a boat in the middle. Jesus showed up walking unto them. This man again? Walking on the sea? His disciples exclaimed! Peter called him, Rabbi, can I join your faith cruise? Jesus invited him over. Come on Peter! Peter jumped from the boat. It was not a bad adventure he thought? he ran and jumped on the sea towards Jesus. Suddenly a strong wind blew reminding him of his realities. His faith shook. He allowed doubt. He was sinking! About to drown into the deep,Jesus moved close, held him by the hand and pulled him out.

Doubt and faith are two forces but opposite. Doubt and fear are jolly brothers. They work together against our faith. Our faith fail most times because we don’t even understand how faith works. Many feel because they had faith yesterday or a second ago, it should still apply. What they fail to understand is that faith should be seen as a continuous process that should never break in transmission such as we can never stop breathing. The moment Peter started to doubt, the Bible says he started to drown immediately. The moment you break the flow of faith and allow doubt to pull you, you begin to sink downward.

Devil is a tricky creature. Such cunning! He understands the human psyche. He has mastered that. He threatens us with a suddden bang to induce fear in us. This bang could be subtle or very big like a loss of a loved one, job, contract, home etc. At this time we open up our heart to process why the bang happened. Devil uses this medium to inject doubt. We start to drown and our confidence goes down within our thought. At this point, if we are not self sufficient in handling this bang with self motivation and the word of God, we sink. Hereby why we need good friends and family for time like this to minister and strengthen our faith.

If you have heard the word helping his/her faith. That is what it means. Faith is the only thing meant for victory. Fear and doubt are the tools of the enemy against our faith. So many situations are thrown at you to test your faith. Don’t quiver. Stand up to it. Some people, their faith were threatened by death threats. Don’t ever give up your faith. That’s the authority you have to always win and move ahead. Fear and doubt have no good to offer than to keep you under~motivated, unhappy, threatened, sick, low in confidence and retrogressive. Faith lights you up in a spark and everything makes sense. It gives you energy, hope, joy, optimism, happiness and prosperity. Faith has an unseen energy beyond limits. People of faith move mountains because they always move with the energy of believe. Energy of believe is such an energy that birth possibilities. If you believe you can, then you shall. Give your life completely to faith, live a life of faith, don’t even bargain your faith no matter what happens. Make faith your life and live it completely then watch how your life transforms.

Finally brethren, faith is continuous. The faith of a second ago won’t save you if you allowed fear and doubt the next second. Uninterrupted faith is the only way to win. Never break thetransmission of faith. Never believe you can’t. Never believe it is not possible. Never believe your situation can’t change. Never believe you won’t live long. Never accept no for an answer. Light up your faith and let the world see. Never let it go off and defend if it with all you’ve got.

Beauty on a card

Posted 3 CommentsPosted in Educational, Motivational

Ayobami Komolafe 

The best feeling when you start a business is when you put the title CEO or MD on your card. You match along as everyone hails; the CEO (drum rolls)😊. Your head swells to the high heavens knowing you have a business name, a business card and maybe you are lucky to have an office to your dynasty. You change your Facebook status, create a company pages and do same across all social media platform known to any human on earth. Bam! The birth of a new CEO with very promising and exciting dreams like we have never seen before. Everyone bows in admiration of the New born CEO. All hail the CEO; her royal Highness .😊

Nigeria is blessed with a lot of CEOs. If you so desire to be one, I can tell you how within minutes due to my magnanimity but, in all honesty, tasks ahead are beyond the name and splendor. With my experience from my startup days, I can tell a lot of my pitfalls and successes. A startup experience is a bitter/sweet one but a route you must explore to understand the business world and its dynamics .

To allay any fear, the world constantly need entrepreneurs. The world yearn for innovations. The world needs frontrunners to carry the burden. People have money they want to spend to buy what interest them. I also want you to be an entrepreneur. But in my own case, I want you to be a successful one.

When I was fixing prices for my services years back, after I started my company Kobatunm Entertainment , I moved from studio to studio to determine how price worked around here. I met a guy who also had come back from the UK, he had such a dream to dominate the entire media from audio to video, photography, Video production, advert, training and post production name it!. He took action . He had money. He invested , rented a big four bedroom flat , bought computers , bought audio equipments , cameras , employ personnel. After two year he became bankrupt and was in debt. According to him , he was owing a year rent now and it has gone bad between him and his landlords at his residence and office. He open up to me because he thought we could partner or I could buy the business. I remembered while I hosted him in my office later on, I called him by the name the CEO. He rightly declined the title because now all his confidence had crashed and vanished. He said I should not call him by that again because he did not think he was one. He was looking for a way to sell out and offset debts. The down side was that when people knew he was desperate and panicky, they were offering him ridiculous prices that would not even get him out of the precarious situation he found himself. He renounced his membership as one of us ‘CEO’ in my presence. I had pity but there was nothing I could do to help. I only knew I had to work hard before I too would have to renounce my membership in the league of CEO confederation because I myself had my fierce battles ahead…hmm..🙂

Business gets its name from ‘busyness’ and it is no child play. You have to understand the dynamics before venturing into one. It is easy to put money into business but it is hard to take your money back from it once its in it. The guy I told his story above got it wrong because he had little knowledge on media and the media business. He failed to put other modalities in place that his business required.

Before you quit your job, put a good plan in place. If you are not hardy like a Carmel in sahara desert, don’t quit your job yet friend. You have to save or procure what can help you live until the period you think your business will become viable or keep your job, work part-time so you current job can be a shock absorber till you leave infantry stage in your business. Make sure you calculate every cost and be sincere with your expected revenue. Get a mentor if you can to provide you information at each stages. Make sure you perfect your business models and its execution. Know your risk and how you intend to mitigate. Don’t boycott processes. They may come back to ruin everything. Follow your plans through and also effect changes along as you go.

Business is a beautiful world that juice out what you don’t think you have. Be prepared to deal with it. Don’t undervalue knowledge and knowhow . Money is only part of what you need. I can not cover all you need to be a business person with this writeup but I encourage you to learn more on your own. The world needs business people and I want you to be a successful one. Do have a great adventure with your businesses and I wish you a fulfilled life.

The Kaduna state government in a bid to raise the standard of education conducted a competence test for the teaching staffs in his state. Whopping 21,780 out of 31,000 teachers failed. So pathetic!. In this wise, the state government took the bold step to terminate their appointments.

When I read about this, I was dead on the side of the state government asking why these lots were employed in the first place? What were the criteria for their employment? With the scripts I saw displayed by the state government, I was disgusted. However, much later, I tried to switch off my sentiment button off  to help my judgment from not taking sides with the government or the affected teachers. I was able to get a clearer picture. I categorize this write-up into five phases:

1. The stance of the government.
2. The stance of the victims.
3. The system that birthed mediocrity
4. Where the government is wrong.
5. My recommendation.

Reading is not fun. That’s why you have to be told

Posted Leave a commentPosted in Motivational

“If anyone says reading is fun. The person is lying to you. If you are a beginner or you have not read in a long while , you would probably understand.”

The first book I read was not read by me but my mother. She absolutely read on my behalf. When I was in primary two, my mother saw a need to help my sister and I improve on our grammar and English speaking. She bought series of short interesting novels. My sister and I never read. The books were there lying on the reading table. I remember vividly one titled ‘the lost lamb’ . Each time I picked it up, I never understood a thing. I began to imagine why my mum did not buy me a football instead of buying six novel at a time? Holly molly!! Whew!!… But I accepted faith and decided not to help her read it as well. One day she called us and told us to narrate what we read in the book she bought. My sister and I were both looking like hey babe, why not ask us what we love to eat instead? By a stroke, she got the magic, she told us to go. After she had read the book herself, she called me, with the book in her hand and told me the story inside the one titled ‘the lost lamb’. Hmm.. I loved the story. I start to fantasize about it. The next morning, I took the novel to school proudly and started narrating to my friend like I was the one that read it. Very smart? That was revolutionary. I thank her this day for showing me how to enjoy reading. I have read loads of books ever after.I have books in my shelve and hard disc that I don’t think I can finish in my lifetime ;myriads!.

Iwobi and Jay Jay“It is a goal… It’s is Alex Iwobi…He just scored a fantastic goal… Nigeria are on their way to Russia world cup in 2018… “

Childhood is one of the best times we all lived in . Most of the great successful people we see out there today are sharpened in their earlier stage by a mentor who recognized the gift and put all he could to grow and nurture it to a saleable stage.

I owe my dad a lot, when I look back at the number of his favorite tapes I destroyed. Anytime he intended to listen to music, in the middle somewhere, the naughty voice of his son muttering nonsense popped up . Some of those times , I would get the stick, sometimes, he ignored. I was a very inquisitive as a child. I asked lots questions on every details. If you don’t tell me, I will find out by myself. I would loosen TV, radio sets, coupled them back to know what is inside of them . Well, I never found anything inside except wires but Now I know the truth

My parents were more of the education is the only key kind of person. They did not know what to do with my gifts until I grew up to take responsibility. They have been supporting me since I was confident enough to prove it to them .It was however after University degree.

I always smile when I see little children do funny stuffs because I was a typical example. Some of you reading this would probably be my boss in stubbornness and inquisitiveness as a child however . Little children have a lot inside them. Are we paying attention to the one in our care? They need our mentoring. Are we giving it to them? When we cannot, are we going to send them to coaches who can ? They need assurance . Are we instilling confidence into them? My yearning as a child never changed and it won’t . That’s my build and spec. The message is to pay attention to the little ones. They have untapped gifts that need to be paid attention to. Don’t let the gift in your child go to waste. Don’t ignore it. Education alone is not the gateway to succeed in life.
