 Hi everyone. I'm in the mood to pontificate so here goes. Some quotes to help you along the road:

 Once you are defeated in your mind, Ladies and Gentlement, its all over! - Kanmi Abioye Oyebisi

 Who can guarantee that you won't make it, that you can't achieve your goals? No one can. Not even you. Go after it! -Kanmi Abioye Oyebisi

 He who thinks he stands should take heed lest he falls. Self audit should be a continual process-Kanmi Abioye Oyebisi

 As usual, there is a great woman behind every idiot - John Lennon

 If there's no enemy within, the enemy without can do us no harm - Yoruba proverb made more popular by Les Brown

 An inventor fails 999 times, and if he succeeds once, he’s in. He treats his failures simply as practice shots. - Charles Kettering

 You need to get going now. Today! You have only one shot at life-this ain't no dress rehearsal! You won't be coming this way again- Kanmi Abioye Oyebisi

POISONOUS STUFF To Get Your Creative Juices Running Today

This is a short one and no, its not about poison. But it can poison and mortify mediocrity and lack lustre performance in your life. This is about stirring up creativity which no doubt lies within you. This is about strangulating failure in your life.
There isn’t any human being placed on this planet without the necessary equipment to survive and excel here, chief of which is creativity. This blessing from the Almighty – which we all possess –can ensure you churn out great stuff continually continually (repetition intentional) at work, play or business. Unfortunately, creativity has a great enemy which limits progress in every life. Its called noise.

There’s so much noise around us. And am not talking about neighbourhood kids making a din at a party down the street. I refer here to every distraction which prevents us from looking inwards to stirring up our creative juices. I refer to the great enemy of getting quiet…..entertainment.

Entertainment. I am not against everything or anything that  provides amusement – from social media to the latest soaps, serial movies, clubbing, gaming (and I am a great fan of X-box, so I am no sadist) and the like. We so keep our minds engaged with undefined activity all day long, that we do not have time to get quiet – and harness great thoughts which can lead to great actions and a great life.
So find time to think about this. Get creative by getting quiet. Create time to get quiet. Schedule it. Find what time of the day works best for you. Give it 15 minutes daily on your time table (for starters) and ensure you discipline yourself to do it daily. Keep a notebook at hand to document great thoughts and ideas that will surely come to you.

Don’t wait. Start today. It is guaranteed to improve your life immediately. Get great thoughts , get creative, GET QUIET!
