THINK AND GROW RICH

It is no ordinary desire that survives disappointment, discouragement, temporary defeat, criticism and the constant accusation of being a ‘waste of time’. It is a burning desire, an obsession!

It’s funny how things seem tougher when you take a decision about something or decide to make a change. You decide to lose weight by eating healthier meals then you get offers for free meals of small chops, pizzas and ice cream not once or twice and you remember you don’t even have to pay! You decide to help a friend and you find out that helping out can also be really inconvenient. It’s funny how there’s always a hurdle to cross when you make a decision or take a stand.

This book will teach you how to close the gap between ideas and achievements, good intentions and their successful completion. It will guide you on how to keep your enthusiasm while crossing those hurdles that seem positioned just for you.

Meet the man who drives in Lagos, Nigeria and never uses his horn up to 10 times in a year

– Does he exist? Or better still is he chauffeured?

Yes and No. He is for real and he truly does drive himself since he loves driving. So back to the question of his horn usage, 10 times in a year is almost impossible! For those outside Lagos, let me quickly give a brief description of driving in Lagos. Lagos is the 17th busiest city and 3rd worst city to drive in the world with over a million vehicles driving daily on the roads, (African Association of Public Transport, 2010, LAMATA, 2014), notice I said vehicles not just cars. We have tricycles, bikes, transport buses, pick-up vans and articulated vehicles all vying for space on Lagos roads. Not forgetting the bad roads in some areas; if you are not in Lagos, you can only but imagine the congestion.

Everyone is in a hurry, everyone feels super road-smart, everyone feels they own the road and have all the road rights. The roads are never quiet with horns blazing from defensive driving, offensive overtaking, pedestrians crossing the road right under a pedestrian bridge or using the horn as defense from mean truck drivers (this was me as a learner). So how does one drive around and keep the horn usage to less than 10 in a year not in a day??? (Now that’s a serious question).

Luckily for you, I know where you can find this intriguing person and learn more about his personality which by the way has made him a success.

The truest test of a driver is to be able to drive without waking up sleeping passengers – no horns, no sudden braking, no road rage, no thumping into potholes.

Serious about negotiating fair and square? Then read this.

All too often negotiators end up like the proverbial children who quarreled over an orange. After they finally agreed to divide the orange in half, the first child took one half, ate the fruit and threw away the peel, while the other threw away the fruit and used the peel from the second half in baking a cake.

Too many negotiations end up with half an orange for each side instead of the whole fruit for one and the whole peel for the other. Why? Continue reading “Serious about negotiating fair and square? Then read this.”

How to read (more) in 2018

New year, New goals. If reading or improved reading is one of yours, then this is for you. A timeless piece. **I strongly believe this will help, hence the repost**

I have never being a fan of “how-to” books; Like seriously, who writes a book to help you ‘read more’ in almost 200 pages. That’s like pushing your luck. Well Martin Udogie got really lucky with this one, not only was I able to get the cookie out of the book but I did it in hours not days or weeks Tosan A.

How to move from Point A to Point B.

We are always looking for complex answers to our desire to change or achieve better results, maybe because we feel our needs are either complex or we just want to have access to the excuse that it was too complex that was why we could not achieve the desired changes. The latter may be why when we see simple answers, we are upset that the answers undermine our problems. Jack‘s recommended success principles are so simple that we could choose to either ignore them or just get into it right away – Tosan A.

Tipping point

My first review with mixed feelings. It’s one of those books you hate to love. I was drawn to the book by one of the acclaims for the book about it being a good read for marketers, so I went in with expectations on how to tip my sales! I was initially unsure but I soon understood just how that was going to happen as I read through this knowledge- packed book. I enjoyed it – Tosan A.

Who would you rather be?

be-yourself

Who would you rather be? Mark Zuckerberg, Beyonce, RMD, Dangote, Folorunsho Alakija, Oprah, or just anyone else other than yourself? Well this book thinks otherwise – BE YOURSELF. As a firm believer in Christians knowing WHO they are in Christ, I was first drawn in by the title. Another opportunity to learn how to stand firm as a child of God, not just for the sake of being called a Christian – Tosan A.
