The question I always ask myself as a speaker is “how can I develop myself to be a better person today than I was yesterday?” And I always answer this question by reading books, talking to my Mentors, helping my Mentees, Meditating, walking around my neighborhood, practicing new speaking techniques and watching movies that inspire and can help me in my Journey. I want to share with you some of the titles of the movies I think can help inspire and help you understand the power of Persistence;

Majority of the youth in Africa believe that the only way to make it in life is to travel abroad and seek greener pastures.
This mindset has killed millions of people in the Mediterranean Sea.
This mindset has killed many dreams.
This mindset has made Africa inferior.
This mindset has made many hopeless.
This mindset has caused a lot of dropouts in Africa. And
This mindset must stop!!!!!!
I also used to think that way until I realized that my destination can never determine or halt my dream.
Please let’s join hands and work together to help inspire, encourage and spread the message of hope to our brothers and sisters that “the world is a global village and if we invest and work on our dreams we can go to any place on earth without even any serious Visa Checks like Dr. Sam Jonah, Aliko Dangote, Prince Amoabeng and all the change makers in Africa”.
I believe in you and I believe that it’s Possible

What type of battles do you engage in daily as a young future leader?
Do you fight the religious battle of hate for each other?
Is your battle in the middle of the road with a taxi driver you may never even see again?
Are you the type who fights the Political battle of hate, greed, and evil against your brothers?
Do you engage in the Chelsea and Man U fight all day?
Do you fight the battle of Jealousy?
Do you fight for the Inheritance of a dead man’s property?
Do you fight for approval and acknowledgement from others before you take action?
Do you fight for your Community?
Do you fight to mourn the relationships and Resources you have lost in the past? Or
Do you fight to see your dream come true by learning, loving, persevering and helping?
Whichever battle you engage in is your choice but i just want to remind you that life is too short to spend it on battles that don’t matter. Fight only the most, most, most important ones and let the rest find their customers to fight them.
