Dear friends and fans, good day and how are you doing today? I wish to use this opportunity to thank you and welcome you back to my popular blog. I am really sorry for my long absence. I was away for two major reasons. First, I was heavily engaged in my primary assignment as a Professor of Policy, Defence and Strategic Studies at the Nigerian Defence Academy, Kaduna, Nigeria. I have been involved in serious academic research and sundry collaborative ventures with my linkage programme colleagues. Second, I have taken sufficient time off to reassess and re-strategize my blog for better service to humanity.

I really appreciate your text messages, letters, calls and pleas for me to resume my weekly write-ups in my blog. I wish to assure you that I have resumed my write-ups in full force. My main purpose as usual is to lead you to life of abundance of riches and wealth. I will help you to live up to your full potential in all areas of your life. I will show you the secret of personal wealth, happiness and fulfillment. You will discover why some people achieve all their goals while others simply dream of having a better life.

There are two things that I want to share with that will help you to succeed in life, starting from today. Both are important but it is the first one that is most important: 1) Work harder on yourself than you do on your work or business so you can become an attractive individual to work with. Personal development is working on things you’re not good at. How do you communicate to the world is greatly affected by your level of thinking, 2) You have a choice of people you want to surround yourself with. Nobody forced you to spend time with anyone. Learn to dissociate or limit your association with people who aren’t going the same path as you. You should surround yourself with people who are always hustling. It doesn’t matter if it is a job, network marketing, insurance sales, real estate, academics, industry, politics, etc. Be around people who are never contented with their comfort zone. Not only will they motivate you to work harder but you will gain better quality connections.

Before my next write-up, let me leave you with these time-tested and imperishable pieces of advice.
1. Plan while others are playing.
2. Study while others are sleeping.
3. Decide while others are delaying.
4. Prepare while others are day-dreaming.
5. Begin while others are procrastinating.
6. Work while others are wishing.
7. Save while others are wasting.
8. Listen while others are talking.
9. Smile while others frowning.
10. Commend while others are criticizing.
11. Persist while others are quitting.

Stay focused. Till next week, remain blessed.
