You Motivate or Demotivate Yourself

“The more you believe in yourself, the more you win.”

– The selling champion.

The new year has gradually taken off. It’s ideal to set clear goals this year and work hard to achieve them. Be positive in all you do.

Learn from the agama lizard

Let us learn from the agama lizard that fell from the iroko tree. The lizard fell from the tree, looked left and right and nodded its head in approval and celebration because it believed in the concept of: “If you don’t celebrate yourself, nobody will!”

It’s not easy to fall down from the mighty iroko tree, hence the celebration by the agama. Celebrate your wins this year; no matter how small or big. Motivate yourself. Inspire your world. Keep being positive.

We just need to develop the right mindset before setting out. This mindset positions us to do the right things at all times. You have what it takes within to achieve your goals; just believe and work it.


The sculpture determines the shape

The artist who molds an artwork determines the shape of the work. This is where creativity comes in. The artist molds and creates beautiful piece that will standout anywhere.

You are like a sculptor who has the ability to mold what he or she desires. You can create the world you want. You have an enormous ability within. No one can stop you, not even your environment. Believe that 2023 is your best year so far. You need to motivate yourself every day. You need to inspire your world. Nobody will do this for you.

24th Law: If You Want to Succeed, Do What Successful People Do


Conquer the inner you!

Conquer your environment! Where you are coming from does not really matter. What matters is where you at the moment, and where you are headed. Sit at the driver’s seat and take charge.


Stay on the driver’s seat

As a salesman, entrepreneur, or professional, you must decide to stay in charge. No matter what the projections say about 2023; no matter what the economic outlook is communicating; you must still choose to be positive. Yes, be positive and keep doing your best. This mindset is what gets the results, not the other way.

Self-doubt leads to failure. The person who demotivates himself is setting himself up to fail. You have what it takes to achieve your goals this 2023. The pencil is in your hands to write your script. Tell a beautiful story about you. Do what you do with passion and determination in order to succeed.  Wake up every day and say: Yes I can!  Do what you love and what makes you happy. Be passionate about your job or business because that’s where the blessings will come from.

Keep Hope Alive


Passion and determination are priceless

Don’t be driven by money; rather, be consumed by passion to make a difference. Lionel Messi once said, “Money is not a motivating factor. Money doesn’t thrill me or make me play better because there are benefits to being wealthy. I’m just happy with a ball at my feet. Motivation comes from playing the game I love. If I wasn’t paid to be a professional footballer, I would willingly play for nothing.” This is the mindset that leads to greatness.

You must love yourself and what you do. This brings out your best. Glow and bring sunshine everywhere you go. Be happy with your job and celebrate yourself. If you are at the wrong job or business, then it’s time to get a new one.

When you love what you do, you give it your best and it’s your best that guarantees your way to the top. If you don’t celebrate yourself, nobody will. Remember the agama lizard. When you are happy with yourself, your environment will be happy with you. Let it be a duty you owe yourself that you inspire yourself daily.

Be Identified with the Best

Experts agree that happiness is our own choice. It’s only you who can make yourself happy. Aristotle puts it this way “Happiness depends upon ourselves.” The happy you is activated from within.  This is why I like the agama lizard! The agama understands these life’s lessons.


Negativity leads to failure

Bring along sunshine anywhere you go. You can’t give happiness if you have not created happiness within you. Happiness lives within.

Start-ups, emerging leaders, and professionals need to pay particular attention to this: Don’t let any form of disappointment affect you negatively; this is a duty. Personal motivation ignites the fire in you for great performance, no matter what you see and how tough it seems; always inspire yourself.

Nobody is under obligation to do this for you; you are the one who will be celebrated when you succeed and not any other; so keep doing your best and inspire yourself always!

Remember that smart hard work pays. Win from within. Keep moving forward. Move from good to better, then to best.

Get your PVC. This is your duty to your country. Do your part for a better Nigeria. Vote wisely.
