What is your excuse?

The global population is over 7.6 billion. With so many people on mother earth, how can a lone voice like mine be heard? How do I make it in life with so much competition? I don’t live or come from a developed nation and am disadvantaged since I can’t access the resources required to succeed in the 21st century. I didn’t and can’t attend an Ivy League school because I am not financially well-off. Moreover, I can’t access local or international scholarships.

There are a thousand and one reasons that people could give for not making it in life. Being a success in life requires an understanding of how to discover and apply your talents, how to make money towards financial accomplishment and security, how to maintain good relationships, how to achieve personal development, how to overcome poverty…

My message through this post is simple: Y-O-U can make it big your own way like anyone else did their way.

Jeff Bezos has witnessed exceptional success in life through the application of his genius but you have all you require to succeed also because you are a genius also in your own right as a unique gift to the world. Mark Zuckerberg is one of the most famous people in the world today through his impactful work with Facebook but you are equally endowed to attain fame if you run with those innate and acquired strengths within you.  Larry Page and Sergey Brin gave us a different experience with the optimization of the search engine technology through Google. You have your unique legacy the world still awaits to make it better. Bill Gate’s name rings a bell for his pioneering work with Microsoft and success with the Bill & Mellinda Gates Foundation, co-owned with his wife, Melinda but you can be inspired by their bequest to humanity and follow suit by identifying and delivering your own unique work that will distinguish you from the crowd.

The foundation for achieving all you were created to be and joining the elite class of the greatest people of all time can be found in The Fulfilment Manifesto.

It is essential to overcome poverty, attain financial success and security and maintain adequate relationships in the quest to attain the success in life you deserve.

If you are reading this right now, it is a confirmation that you can belong to the global elite group of the many greatest people of all times, some of whom were mentioned earlier. It means any and indeed all of the excuses you can imagine, including the seemingly most cogent of them can’t stop you.

Yes, with the agency of the internet you can begin your journey to greatness because it lifts you above many if not all of the obstacles that hitherto hindered many.  So how does the internet help you overcome these excuses? Here is a 3-step plan that could take you there:

  1. A home on the internet: involves having a domain name and a hosting account. This is similar to having a physical house where you live as well as a landlord! I strongly recommend hostinger because of the excellent support, useful tools they offer and the uptime efficacy of the platform. You can review an independent comparison of hostinger and another quality hosting company here .
  2. Read my earlier post here .
  3. Implement the advice of Turn Your Paid Job to a Money Machine available here .

Life is more of a marathon than a sprint. It doesn’t matter where you are now and until you reach the finish line, anything is possible if you try by pursuing the fulfiment manifesto!

To your Fulfilment!

Discover Yourself

I chose to start this post in a rather unusual manner through this poser: Do you think it is possible to rise to the board or directorship of a great company and still feel empty and unfulfilled about life?

We are all born naked into the world with all possibilities open to each and every one of us. Anything or rather everything is possible for each of us as long as we aspire and pursue it in a committed fashion. Consequently, several motivations lead the individual to identify and define his line of pursuit in different aspects of life.

This may result in success in career for instance, if all the t’s are crossed and all the i’s dotted within a particular workplace. A success in career as exemplified by this does not necessarily equate automatically to fulfilled living. How do I mean?

It is possible to ‘live another person’s life’ and end up a ‘success’ in your career. How do we monitor and establish if this is the case for any individual? An honest retrospection on life from the ‘high horse’ of that executive position juxtaposed by a balancing introspection will expose the true state of the person.

If someone’s purpose ought to be in the classroom and he finds his way obstinately into real estate for instance, chances are high for fulfilment to be elusive and destiny unfulfilled also. There is a purpose for each of us as individuals. The nature of our upbringing does not help us however, in most cases to discover this early because of the traditional practice of following the established pattern in the respective communities we come from and grow up in.

Somehow, only a few of us are able to discover themselves early in life either through deliberate effort or just by an act of fate. The results speak for themselves in such people\s lives. They go on to achieve huge success in about everything they do.

This article is a call to deep self introspection with the aim of discovering yourself. My friend, if you discover yourself, you will live a more satisfying life that you would enjoy in a new dimension. The good news is that it is not so arduous to achieve as many feel.

You could start attaining it right away if you are bent on it. The key to discovering yourself starts from finding your identity. So, who really are you? 3 quick tips to discovering yourself include:

  1. Understanding who you are.
  2. Knowing what you do well.
  3. Knowing what you like doing and/or are passionate about.

Is it really some rocket science to do any of these? It doesn’t seem so and certainly is not. A honest assessment is however inevitable for the right answers to the questions associated with the afore-listed tips to be arrived at.

These are life changing questions which are not commonly asked and when even asked, are only done rhetorically. The effect of this therefore, is that many of us end up striving to live other people’s lives and end up being second best in most of all we do. You are original and would excel with less effort if you discover yourself and do only the unique biddings that match your originality.

Just so that we feel a sense of belonging, we go to places our friends and siblings go to that add little or no value to us. Just so that we are not termed weak, we decide to study a course not because it is what we are interested in but so that we can prove our strength. We go out of our way to update our wardrobes with the latest arrivals in the world of passion just so that we are not termed obsolete. Just to keep up with the Jones and Joneses, we go see the soccer game because that is what majority of the people are doing.

Your time for real living has come! Drop that fake you and put on the real you. Desist from going with the crowd and unleash your discovered self on the world for optimum result. Majority is not always right; often, in real life, they are wrong.

If you have struggled for most of your life in many things you have done or do, chances are that you have not discovered yourself and have been threading in unfamiliar terrains that are strange to the way you are configured to excel. Imagine a person that should be a lawyer by calling ending up as a student majoring in Mathematics! Where is the match between the art of piecing words together to sway the judge and win a case and the skill of rationalising what balances an equation, solves an inequality or gives a Pythagoras triple?

You can be better than you are doing now if you discover yourself. The value match, purpose discovery and pursuit will help to usher in a new realm in your life and you will be happy forever that you decided to do so. This will enable you to unleash yourself on the world and leave your landmark signature on the indelible sand of time and only Y-O-U can do that.

I strongly recommend the work of Scott Schwefel and his book DISCOVER YOURSELF will help remove any struggle on your path to self discovery, personal development and fulfilment in life.

To your Fulfilment!

A Man’s Life doesn’t Consist in the Abundance of the Things He Possesses

The title of this post is particularly long. This is deliberate following my last post, “You Count”.

The material possessions or goods owned by an individual have no bearing on a person’s level of fulfilment in life when considered in isolation. Rather, it is the extent to which the person is able to unleash his passion and purpose that gives the highest value in improving his life and humanity eventually resulting in fulfilment.

Some of the material things people labour to acquire include:

Exotic cars

Private Jets

Mansions

Yacht

Jewellery

Chieftaincy Titles…

The irony of life is that the more of these things the person possesses, the emptier the feeling and less the sense of accomplishment because the avarice to grab more seems to increase with every conquest. The only true giver of a sense of fulfilment however, is in the donation to humanity.

The quest for material possession in most cases results in unwholesome practices which result in the loss of value to humanity. A vast majority of the under development in many of the developing regions of the world is as a result of deficiencies arising from uncontrolled materialism by certain political office holders. The consequence of this is the destruction of the human dignity in many of the citizens who eventually resort to avoidable societal vices as a way to break even and gain relevance.

Many of the widespread societal ills can be avoided by a transformation in the psyche that materialism enhances satisfaction. It does not and explains why several with such questionably acquired material possessions end up exhibiting a barrage of features common to people far from a fulfilled living.

It is indeed an anomaly for materialism to take precedence over humanity!

The best countries to live in around the world are understandably those in which humanity is appreciated and have a high premium placed on it. Consequently, the living quality in such places is enhanced for everybody and the environment is better taken care of also.

The good book asks the monumental question:”What shall it profit a man if he gains the whole world and loses his soul?”

Let’s remain secular and limit our view on this almighty question to bother only on the following: is there a better way to live than excessive materialism? Are there consequences for materialism to the individual that practices it and the rest of humanity? Would the world be better for everyone if this practice is eschewed by all?

We are in the world it seems, not to gain the world at the expense of others by possessing everything by hook or crook. Much as the reward for persistent, positive endeavour could come in being affluent, it calls for a sense of decorum and empathy for the overall human course. Like the saying goes, the quality of a man’s life is not in its duration but its donation.

The reality of this article may be driven home effectively by the fact that only 1% of the global population control a vast majority of the global wealth. The direct and indirect consequences of this are not far removed from the many societal vices prevalent in various places around the world.

Which do we ignore? Is it the innumerable deaths in the Mediterranean Sea? Is it the asylum seekers fleeing violent struggles in different places? Is it the risks illegal migration poses to hitherto stable countries?

Executing “The Fulfilment Manifesto” could offer respite to many of the disillusioned people all over the world as we vigorously pursue success in Personal Development, Relationship and Overcoming Poverty for as many as possible till we impact all humanity everywhere.

Let’s continue to spread the word by sharing and we shall reach out to everyone, one person at a time.

To your Fulfilment!

You Count!

In “The Fulfilment Manifesto”, we spelt the major success factor for fulfilment as Y-O-U. No one is an accident in the world. Every individual is a special package for the benefit of the human race.

Though not everyone may be on a podium mounted by United Nations or other multinational agencies, the influence of each person if applied in a proper manner could be far-reaching in making a certain circle of humanity have a better living experience. This is true for every person on earth irrespective of tongue or tribe, colour or race…

Everyone is meant to have a sphere of influence. Irrespective of your current position in life, you count and can make a difference. If you are able to discover your potential and understand that you are not where you ought to be, then you can begin to work towards your true position in life where you will give your influence to the right sphere and yield optimum result for the benefit of humanity.

How do you discover how you count?

Bodily, you have a different thumb print from every other person on earth. So this is your unique signature on any document that can never be forged by any other person. Every Y-O-U on earth comprises of a Spirit, Soul and Body. Just as you have a unique bodily signature, you possess unique signatures in the Spirit and Soul also that can be stamped on the world for the overall wellbeing of all humanity.

So how do we realise our Spirit-based or Soul-based signatures? Our bodily signature, the thumb print can be easily seen since our Body is physical but the Spirit and Soul are not. The beauty of creation is in the effective co-existence of the Spirit, Soul and Body trident. The person who is able to understand the proper co-functioning of these parts whether seen or unseen, attains a superior performance in the physical realm.

The ‘thumb print’ of your Spirit and Soul is expressed in the form of your Purpose and Passion. Some individuals may receive their Purpose in life from their Spirit through several avenues. For many however, the very strong desire or deep feeling felt in the Soul leads to the definition of their Purpose. Pursuing one’s positive Passion gives a sense of Purpose which drives real change in the world and a greater feeling of accomplishment for the individual.

Some helpful links to help us optimise our existence and make the most of the Y-O-U in each of us is listed at the end of this write-up. Use them as applicable as we progress in the pursuit of ‘The Fulfilment Manifesto’.

Share this post as usual with everyone you can and spread the message of ‘The Fulfilment Manifesto’ towards a better life for individuals in particular and the world in general.

DO LESS…

Have you noticed what I have observed with humanity over the years? It seems there is a code in mankind to strive for complete satisfaction in life by exerting more effort in every aspect of life. Any deviance to this gives the impression of a lack of seriousness in attaining the fulfilment every individual desires and deserves.

When we purchase household equipment for our enjoyment, everyone has the freedom to operate it the way we deem best for optimum performance and enjoyment. There is albeit, always a guide that is meant to help us make the most of our equipment. Sometimes, we ignore this manual supplied usually by the manufacturer to the detriment of our enjoyment as the longevity of the equipment may get hampered.

This is akin to humanity and living life to its fullest. We are products of our creator, who in His infinite wisdom has configured us to reach our peak performance and enjoyment in life by living in a certain way. When we achieve this balance in our earthly sojourn, we are enroute the noble life of fulfilment we crave for every human being and which forms the crux of our flagship document, “The Fulfilment Manifesto”.

The pursuit for fulfilment eludes a vast majority because of this faulty approach which contravenes the natural model that we are designed to follow. Tweaking the defective method will certainly turn around our results and retrace our steps to the path of fulfilment.

Cease from struggling to do more and more of everything! Don’t scatter yourself everywhere without leaving a mark. So what is the way forward?

Do Less…! Yes, you read it right. The missing part of the puzzle is to concentrate your effort, ability and yearning on doing less of everything. We cannot become everything to all men and all things. The sure-footed way to maximize our life is to identify our God-given signature, our purpose and pursue it with everything we have within us.

This results in doing less of everything and doing more of only one thing – your purpose! Yes, doing more of our purpose relieves us of the huge burden we place on ourselves through self-imposed or others-imposed activities that fall outside our purpose. What is your purpose?

Together, we can execute “The Fulfilment Manifesto” by sticking together and it is never too late to discover our individual purpose in life. Recognising purpose is not rocket science and it is better recognized late than never.

I trust the message of this post has been passed and look forward to providing help in subsequent posts that will assist us discover and pursue our purpose towards the attainment of fulfilment.

To your Fulfilment!

Everyone Matters

With about 7.6 billion people in the world, it is pretty easy to get lost in the crowd.

The beauty of nature confirms the vital role each of the persons that constitute the global population has to play towards making the world a better place to live in. This is done by helping each other enjoy a higher quality of life that meets every standard for sustainability.

There is no second person that has same thumb print as you. In a similar vein, no other individual on earth has a DNA that matches yours exactly in every way. The uniqueness of each individual endows everyone with a special ability which lies dormant in the person and is recognised by others as a potential.

More often than not, the world stands to applaud those whose potentials have been stirred up and exhibited in one way or the other. In sports, academia, industry … some names ring a bell globally because of their exploits and .impact. Some others are household names at the national level or in their small communities where they have applied their talents for the benefit of all within their sphere of influence. A vast majority however never have the opportunity to discover their hidden ability and so the need for any form of exertion in applying it never arises.

The greatest threats to the application of ‘Potential’ for the benefit of everyone come commonly in the form of PESTLE factors. PESTLE stands for:

Political

Economic

Social

Technological

Legal

Environmental

All of these can be overcome by adopting the ‘EAT Model’ within the provisions of ‘The Fulfilment Manifesto’ both available in the links shared under this article.

Can we actually imagine and compute the annual worth in any parameter (currency, infrastructure, social harmony…) of the cumulative loss to the world that results from unused human potential across the world?

The ‘Status Quo’ mentality makes the head of a parastatal feel so important that the invaluable contribution of every other person counts only for little or nothing. This is the case often in the corporate world, where it is not uncommon in some organisations to have a few people arrogate to themselves the collective success of everyone. The faulty foundation of this approach is however exposed by the consistently superior performance of establishments in which everyone is recognised for their respective contribution and everyone is acknowledged to matter.

No one lives in a vacuum and the positive or negative activities of everyone directly or indirectly add up to the overall impact on the global community. The ‘Status Quo’ mentality impedes the attainment of a sustainably developed world with higher quality of life for all humans. Everyone matters and the positive contribution of each person’s potential will result in a collective global human output that is of superior quality by every standard.
