I Should Have Listened DC017

I should have listened to an online entrepreneur back in 2010.

follow my guts and take action towards starting out and Learn from my mistake...

I was on a John Lee business accelerator program this week and I got some powerful insights

and aha moment for me and would love to share 3.

which are very powerful mind shifts but all the same they are the fundamentals

for all achievements for any successful person on this planet

from Tyler Perry to Elon Musk, Jeff Bezos to Aliko Dangote and to you listening to me right now.


There are Must Do's, Should Do's, Could Do and WOULD DO.



You Must Decide on what is it you want.

According to Napoleon Hill from his book THINK AND GROW RICH, which is one of the most read entrepreneurial books of all time. (Desire is the starting point of all achievement.)

this is the biggest driving force and none else.

if you decide on just anything that you want, BE SPECIFIC, the universe will shift and make it happen,

It’s like placing an order on Amazon or eBay and expect your order delivered.

Be Clear on what you want, clarity is not easy to achieve from the start of blocks but as we become consistent by DOING it gets clearer.


NO. 2

To grow we need to go outside our comfort zone

After deciding we need to go outside our comfort zone, most times going outside your comfort zone

Looks dramatic or scary but going out your comfort zone might be delayed gratification, adding extra 30 mins a day to learn a new skill, 5 extra sales calls, say Hello to a stranger or that person that has been to where you want to go or achieved the success you want.

one of the biggest silent killers right now is your comfort zone.

I once lived a life of quiet desperation and crying in the showers wishing my circumstances could change and not realising that everything I ever wanted was on the other side of my comfort zone.

Now, I know what I want and decided to go after it as A Chief, as a student, pushing myself, going into new and unfamiliar territories, seeking teachers and mentors to guide me like a sat nav, while I do the work


Remember that... And while you DO need to keep expanding your knowledge in specific areas of your choosing - you can start implementing the things you learn as you go.

And you will be surprised because along the way you can start earning while learning, see yourself becoming successful while building momentum. 

This is something I was late to realize...

NO 3.

Everything is energy, the more you give the more you get.

What belief system do you have, “Everything is energy and that’s all there is to it. Match the frequency of the reality, the goal, the outcome, you want and you cannot help but get that reality.

It can be no other way. This is not philosophy. This is physics.”

It’s certainly true that your reality tends to reflect the type of energy you put into it. Let’s face it,

when you put happiness and kindness into the world, you also tend to interpret things out there in a certain way…

you notice the good things in life. Your subjectivity shapes your world. It’s a wonderful idea and one to take with you.

Simple practice Smile at someone they will 95% reciprocate. This is a universal law.

“Do Not Lie to Yourself

We have to be honest about what we want and take risks rather than lie to ourselves and make excuses to stay in our comfort zone.”

― Roy T. Bennett
