As mankind we do interact, I mean it's natural for us to mix, talk, share, brainstorm, relate and do things together. That's what co existing is all about. No one can live alone without contacting or connecting with anyone else; it's absolutely impossible, we are not wired like that as humans; hence interaction is a basic way of life.

Also we are creatures with emotions, we have feelings; we express feelings, both negative and positive. We, on many occasions react based on how we feel. We make choices and decisions based on how we feel. In fact many times our lives are patterned more after sentiments and emotional direction than objectivity and reality.

Many relationships today still linger purely on emotions and sentiments; we get attached to people, environments, certain routines and even work types based on how we feel.

Many love affairs today and gender involvement is powered more by feelings than objectivity; hence they say love is blind.

Our world today is full of conformers. We have too many people believing the only way to be happy, accepted and loved is to identify with the majority.

Many are careful observers of trends, fads and new things making sure they're the first to be it, feel it, know it, say it and exhibit it.Many want to be up to date, as it were, in trends of fashion, entertainment, politics, lifestyle, breaking news, sports, gadgets, accessories and even global advancement not for the purpose of personal use and self-upgrade but for the purpose of show off and conceit.

It's all about social security and relevance; wanting people to accept them, appreciate them and see them as one who is also in quote ‘current’.

Many invest very precious time on mental upload of the lives and stories of many celebrities, important personalities and events worldwide.

Sometime ago I was opportune to attend a business meeting with a former president of the federal republic. Incidentally I had an informal session with him and we began to discuss and share on the various issues confronting the nation and the youth of this nation.

We talked at length about the various previous plans to put Nigeria on track and on a progressive course several times over; all the development plans of the past and how many of them failed in delivering on expectations.

Of particular interest to me was the National rolling plan of 1990 which in my opinion is one of the best National development plans put in place to develop Nigeria, I was actually interested in why it failed and how subsequently, our national and economic well-being continued to deteriorate.

According to him there are several endemic factors frustrating any development plan in Nigeria and the Rolling Plan of 1990 was no exception.

He stated many issues and factors but critical for me was his opinion about how even the youth have in some ways failed the nation.

Acquiring education and seeking for employment in an economy that is grossly undermanaged can present various challenges to employment seekers and career builders who reside and earn a living within such complex community structures.

Little wonder majority of graduates and employees today are totally unconcerned about building a career, all they need is a job.

I come across many young, talented and brilliant graduates as well as employees today who are looking for any kind of job purely for survival reasons.

They are looking for an employment, an occupation, something to do that will generate enough reward and revenue for them to meet needs and cater for their responsibilities.

The key word for many of them is survival. I need to survive, I have bills to pay, I have so many dependants what is hence important to me, is meeting all these obligations, so I don't mind working anywhere as long as they can pay me enough money to satisfy all these financial demands – goes the thinking.

In this part of the world, we are quick to equate material possessions with success. Once an individual drives a fancy car, wears designer clothes and has some money to spare we simply say such a one is successful.

This orientation unfortunately has tainted what real success means to many, worse hit the up and coming generation. All most of them pursue is the acquisition of material possessions for they believe by it respect, relevance, honour and favour is obtained in our society.

Everyone, both familiar and unfamiliar treats you nice and polite and would go the extra mile for you once the material symbols are in place.

It's less of your character, personality, achievements, sacrifice and contribution. If you have no material possessions to show for your years of labour and endeavour, the society terms you a failure.

This destructive orientation has hence, caused many bright and gifted individuals to derail from their place of maximum impact, values creation and passion.

We live in a very complicated, dynamic and independent world. We have no absolute control over what has happened to us or could happen to us.

Many of us in time past had very exciting and beautiful plans about various aspects of our lives and future but were eventually met with disappointment as it did not go the way we planned it.

Many in time past have experienced disappointments from loved ones, friends and family and individuals that appeared to have integrity and the ability to help or support us, who at the last minute failed us.

Many of us had put our faith and hope in institutions; secular institutions like the government and spiritual institutions as well and at the end we're disappointed.

Life itself may have frustrated our expectations by for instance the sudden death of someone whom would have been very supportive in our quest and desires in life.

Every now and again we all experience disappointments, frustrations, opposition and failures in life, consequently, we no longer believe so much in our dreams and visions and desires. We no longer have so much faith in our expectations and have reclined in our disposition to life with a philosophy of what's gonna be is gonna be.

As Africans, It’s really amazing the share number of theories, philosophies, beliefs and dogmas we have come to totally embrace, accept, apply and recommend.

From the beginning, the quality of a man’s mind has always being his most powerful weapon for success in life. You can never be better than your mind-set. You cannot out perform your mind-set. Your life today is the result or product of your thinking till date.

The difference between the successful and the failure, the poor and the rich, the president and the prisoner, the leader and the lagging, the performer and the indolent is purely a matter of the mind. It has very little to do with background, environment, talent or abilities. It is in the mind-set.

Everything you do today; good or bad, productive or destructive, progressive or regressive, commendable or despicable is preceded by a thought process.

Everyone thinks before acting. Either consciously or unconsciously a thought precedes an action

TODAY ON FRANKLY SPEAKING - WHY CAREER FAIL.

Your career is a very important aspect of your life. Most of your time as a living being would be committed to starting, growing, building and prospering with career.

Who you are; your relevance in the society, your worth in person and material possessions are all the outcomes of the quality of your career.

Your career ought not to start the day you graduate from the university. In actual fact either deliberately or unconsciously, a man's career begins to find expression and definition from as young as his days in grade school; that is primary school.

The kind of subjects you like and find interesting may begin to paint a picture of what you'll find fulfilment doing later on in life.

Also the kind of exposure you had, interactions you enjoyed, entertainment you relished and associations you maintained during your growing years play significant roles in shaping your views, perceptions, norms and ethics in dealing with life issues.

A few weeks ago, I decided to take an evening stroll around the estate where I reside. It was around 8pm and I just wanted to take a long walk. I left the house, walked out of the gate and began to walk. As I walked along the street, I had my phone with me and I became very busy on my phone. I began to chat with friends, shared stuff on Facebook, tweeted some thoughts that came to mind; saw one or two funny videos on Facebook and shared, listened to some songs and was generally entertaining myself as I took the walk with my phone.

As I continued to walk, of course I avoided cars and other people on the road; I returned the salutation of some neighbors and the security guards in the estate, I kept walking, singing, smiling, laughing at some things I saw on my phone and kept chatting with friends on my blackberry.

Eventually I returned home, as I entered the living room my wife suddenly said to me the stroll took me a while and asked the direction toward where I strolled. I was shocked to realize I couldn't tell precisely where I went to and the streets I went through. I couldn't tell precisely who I saw, who I met; the cars that passed me.

TODAY ON FRANKLY SPEAKING - BEFORE YOU SET ANOTHER GOAL.

Over and over I’ve heard people emphasize goals as a major key to success and accomplishments in life.

I hear leaders, I hear teachers, I hear speakers and preachers talk about you setting goals for yourself in life. I’ve heard it said you must set your goals, write them down and be clear about when you want to achieve these goals.

As teachers and speakers we challenge you not to set small, little goals for yourself, we inspire you to set high and lofty goals for yourself because you have on your inside all it takes to achieve your goals in life. We tell you all things are possible, it’s just in you setting your goals, stating the objectives and working towards it.

I’ve heard this advocated very frequently and I’ve taught this as well, but personally, I’m more passionate about seeing results in my audience than exciting my audience. I really don’t bother much if my listeners are not all high and excited and happy every time I speak, my priority is to see them grow, and achieve their goals and dreams. I’m more driven by telling the truth than creating empty excitements.

 

TODAY ON FRANKLY SPEAKING - ALL ABOUT HARD WORK.

Lately I've been thinking, and I've been trying to see how I can enjoy my life better. I began to look at my schedules, my programs, commitment and the very numerous tasks waiting for my attention daily and I worry if I'd ever have enough time and chance for the fun things I'd want to do at my age.

I considered the number of calls and mails, appointments, classes, and training schedules and wonder if 24 hours can ever be enough for me. I also look at the personal time I require to develop myself, train myself, practice and study and I began to realize with growth comes more responsibility and scarcity of time for fun and exciting ventures because of all the travels, all the meetings and the responsibility of running and managing several businesses effectively to deliver profit. Success I continue to admit is not actually a piece of cake; not a walk in the park.

The first thought that came to my mind is, Muyiwa, you just need to be more hard working, you need to work harder; just then I paused to think, and I began to really reconsider what hard work is within the context of my predicament. I don't think I'm a lazy person, I said to myself, so why is my first inclination in solving my pressure challenge working harder?

This episode is particularly inspired by the English dictionary copulative definition of growth, which defines it as ‘to assume a condition or qualify over time’.

Being a typical African, I have seen in African movies and come across many people whom were told by spiritualists when they were much younger that they foresee a very bright and very prosperous future for them.

I mean let's face it, as very religious and spiritual people, many of us now and again visit our spiritual leaders for prayers and guidance into the future, regarding a challenge or for protection. These spiritual people hence could predict an outcome tied to certain terms and conditions.

Drawing from this practice, if for example a child at birth according to a true prophet's prediction is ordained or predestined to be a very successful world class surgeon, if on the account of this prediction or prophesy, this boy does nothing whatsoever to become a surgeon, it's very unlikely he would turn out as one despite the prediction or prophesy.

One of the trickiest aspects of life and living is how fast we use up time and we don't even realize it. Every second, every minute, every hour, every day time is running out. Time never waits, it never waits.

Your time is continuously in use no matter what you do or don't do. You're getting older by the minute weather you're conscious of it or not.

Time is constantly on the go, it waits for no one. Infact your own time is not waiting for you. Does not keep up with you or wait for you. Your time has no respect for your feelings, emotions, circumstances or energy level. Moving or not, progressing or regressing, advancing or stagnating, awake or asleep, your clock is ticking, your calendar is changing, the dates are flipping, never to reoccur, absolutely irreversible.

Your time is your life.

Many of us today find it difficult to appreciate this reality hence we disrespect time, while away time and waste time despite the fact that there is so much we're yet to accomplish or deliver.
