Are You Overdosing Your Children?

In celebrating your child or children today, and every other day, because they are special you have to be cautious in overindulging them. Children have receptive minds, and at this stage of their lives, they need to be molded and given the right foundation to become that great man or woman you will be proud of someday.

Unfortunately, nowadays, overindulgence has become parenting norm. Let me illustrate my point with a story that’s typical.

I know of a certain middle-class family. They were just able to get what they need to live a fairly comfortable life. But, they tried all their best and spent all the good to give their five children anything they wanted, so they lived in a world where they could not say “NO” to the demands of their children. Because of this excess, the children grew up to believe life is a bed of roses. Until the first child had to work during her industrial training program in school, only then, did she realize the strenuous efforts the parents put in, to give them everything, and how petty, and inconsiderate they had been, also the role the parents played in turning the reality of life upside-down!

From that day onward, she made up her mind to become a better person. Not every child in this young woman’s case escapes the ill effect of overindulgence.
To give your children their way in everything is a big lie to the future ahead of them. It’s necessary to say “no” far more often than your children hears “yes” if you want them to be truly successful in life, and remain a success. Stand between your children becoming emotionally undeveloped and selfish adults. Teach them the value of constructive and productive efforts. #ChildrenDeserveTrulyFulfillingValues

Happy Children’s Day!!

How High Do You Aim?

One of the reasons some people never come close to reaching their full potentials despite the fact they have the natural abilities – is the problem with the altitude of where they set their aims.

While aiming high can be very frightening, or seem unattainable, it only requires courage, determination, responsibility, answerability, and action to fly in spite of the fears.

Let me ask you something. Do you aim high? I imagine it’s rare in these hard times. I encourage you not to waste time aiming low, limiting yourself to only what seems easy, doable or simply possible. Don’t cage your potentials, because it doesn’t take more energy to aim high than it takes to aim low.

Instead of striving to simply pass your exams, determine to finish top of your class. More than pushing to increase your customer base, aim high to be the top marketing person. Instead of just helping others to supply goods, try having your own shop in the future. Rather than just doing your job in the workplace, aim high to advance in your career. It’s the trademark of top go-getters.

Choose now to aim high and exceed your potentials.

Dating Etiquette by Damilola Ogunremi

If you're about going into a relationship, or you're in one already, the following tips will help you along your way.

Know What You’re Looking For
Meeting a guy or gal of your dreams is a fabulous thing! However, if you don’t know what you’re looking for first, you’re going to make the dating process much more complex than it needs to be. Decide what sort of dating relationship you are looking for before you get started with your hunt, and you will set yourself up for dating success.

Establish a Mutual Friendship
Do you want a serious relationship? Are you looking to play the field and have a little fun? Is sex with no strings all you want? Or maybe you’re looking to find that special someone and you’ve got till death do you part on your mind? Whatever, it is that you’re looking for; when you meet someone the first thing is to establish a relationship. It’s awkward to defining relationship before establishing one. For example; a man is seen as a weirdo. If he meets a lady for the first time, calls her beautiful names and then, because she responds positively or validates the compliments he feels is now in a romantic relationship with the lady. This is also vice versa.  So, in order words, always establish a mutual friendship before defining what you want out of a meeting.

Dangerous Discussion
Discussing how much you’re worth comes with an increased risk that you’ll come across a shady character that is not exactly what he or she makes themselves out to be. Not every guy or gal you meet will be honest. In fact, some great guys and gals are just so rare to find. So, it’s necessary you don’t discuss your bank details, etc, with someone you just met.

Is it Safe to Visit?
If a guy or gal you just met suggests meeting at their place or yours and they insist this is really shady. I suggest you should not go. Before you decide it’s safe to visit a guy or a gal, meet a couple of time in public locations as this could give you an ample of time to see a number of red flags before entering a long time dating relationship.

Don’t Hit Off
If you eventually meet in a “closet” in his house, or yours, try as much as possible to resist the urge of having sex.  By doing this, you create a bedrock for a relationship. A relationship based on sex, may just be all about it!

Let it Breathe
Once the relationship kicks off, you need to prevent what I call the helicopter effect. This is when one of the parties is constantly stalking the other person. This could be by incessant calls and messages, unsolicited visits, and throwing jealous shades. Allow your relationship to breathe.

Having sex in a relationship bothers on opinion because some people feel they need to have sex in their relationship. I personally don’t advice pre-marital sex, which is morally not acceptable. Ladies note that having incessant illicit intercourse may end up spoiling the fun for the guy. As a typical male folk, relishes suspense. My dad would say, “Don’t have your honeymoon before your honeymoon.”

To Love or Not?
One of my mentors once said that it’s safer to love in a marriage relationship than when dating. This is about giving and allowing yourself to receive from the other.  In the quest to show love, don’t keep giving yourself without receiving from the other person. So, make love a decision, and not solely an emotional feelings built around fantasies. Love your partner for who they are and not encapsulate them in your own desires.  

Should You Commit?
Yes, you must commit in order for a relationship to work.

You Deserve Safety
If unfortunately, you become involved with an abusive guy or a gal, it’s outrightly not advisable to keep this sort of relationship going, because it’s bound to be worse if you end up marrying this person. While change is possible, it's hard to do and it takes a long time. You don’t owe it to anybody to stay in an abusive relationship. So, care for yourself.

Dating & the Altar
Despite your dreams, feelings, impulses, and conviction, note that not every relationship leads to marriage. Always try to look at the big picture. People come into our lives for different reasons which may be beyond a romantic relationship, even though; we met on such terms.  Don’t count your eggs before they hatched. See relationship as an opportunity to make yourself better. Good luck with your dating relationships.

Mint the Right Energy

How are you dealing with the physiological manifestations of upsetting emotions when you fail in your business? On account of your business facing impossible walls, is your effort still first-class in everything you attempt? If you want to prosper in your business always remember that high achievers routinely mint the right energy and strive for excellence irrespective of prevailing challenges.
Just yesterday I was talking to a lady feeling stuck on how to go the extra mile with her services, deliver on her commitments and promises, and even admitted to the horror of slow business on top of all that. I figured out her challenges immediately. Our relationships with our businesses are just like the relationships we share with people. If we put in a load of care and don't get what we want out of it, we can feel bitter and like it's not worth going the extra mile for. As a result, this lady struggle with shredding negative energy and minting the right energy to produce excellence.⁣⁣

What is excellence in business and how can it be achieved? BY DOING MORE! It's that simple! But, why should you do more in your business when you're not even receiving the proper reward for what you've already put in? What's in it for you? The greatest benefit is that you will enjoy a positive transformation as an individual which is one of your most valuable assets in taking your business far. You will become more confident in your area of specialization. You will be influential in solving your customers' problems and meeting their needs. You will have higher financial rewards. You will attract loyal customers who are pleased to provide referrals.⁣⁣

So, to mint the right energy and achieve excellence, you need to stop focusing on the hurdles so, it doesn't seem unreasonable to put in more than it's required. Success is the consistent effort in achieving excellence in everything you attempt. I hope you will take the chance to exceed hostile difficulties in your business.⁣⁣

A Little Farther

Think about those successful businesses you find irresistible.

You know those businesses with the highest ideas, those who have accomplished great works, and make, you dream of becoming someone with a business worth becoming someday.

These businesses are iconic.

You keep going back to their websites, and social media to check them out because of their particular brands. You just like their success story.

What is the one thing that all these successful brands have in common?

Stretching far.

Stretching far is more rewarding than doing things as others are doing it, or doing things a little different.

If you are never content with mediocrity, settle for the average, make halfway attempts at any business you choose to be involved in, but do things better and push higher up, a little farther on, you will always attain genuine success.

Allow yourself to be stretched and expand in many areas more than others ever would. Broaden your knowledge, polish your talents, improve your abilities, and groom your skills if it’s that’s what is required to attain recognition and promotion in your business.

By putting a demand on yourself, you’re creating the path to greatest benefits in your business . . . one that could potentially make all your dreams come true in life.

That’s not a joke!

Don’t assume you’ve done enough, do more and more than enough.  Now is the best time to stretch farther to create those ideas to meet the needs of a wide variety of customers. 

There is no limit for you!

Mix & Mingle with Ease

When you attend meetings do you ignore the opportunity to meet new people? Try out these following ideas at your next event. You don’t want to miss out to expand your network or to meet potential clients or possible future employers.

Accomplish something
In order to get the most out of networking groups, business social events such as conferences and association meetings or cocktail parties, prepare what you want to accomplish from the meeting before leaving home.

What to bring with you
Bring with you to the event plenty of clean, ready to pass out, business cards (preferably in a case)

When you first sit down at an event, turn to the people on either side of you. Make eye contact, smile, and say hello, and introduce yourself. Express a positive comment about the surroundings, or the event.

Don’t be afraid to meet people. Don’t limit talking only to people from within your company or industry. Seize the opportunity to meet new people-potential new customers!

Initiate Conversation
Develop various ways to start conversations

Your business & you
For each person, you will introduce yourself to, create proper self-introduction. Elevator pitch + name + tile + company.

Present proper handshake
Learn the several key components of the perfect handshake before you go for any meeting. 

The business card exchange
Don’t be in haste to exchange business cards, be patient to see if there is a good reason to give it. Don’t just collect cards, collect potential relationships.

The meeting
Ask questions from each person you meet, but listen more than you talk. If he or she seems uninterested, excuse yourself and move on to the next person.

The timeframe
While you are being positive, friendly, and enthusiastic, and having fun, try to spend no more than 10 minutes with each person you meet. A good timeframe will be three to five minutes with each person you meet to determine whether or not there is a good connection.

Make it all count
Make your networking efforts count by following up with what you promised.  Make that call, send that information!
