It’s amazing how time flies. Just looking at it, it appears as though we all said happy New Year a few weeks ago, and considering today’s date the year is almost through.

How nice it feels to see how far we have come date wise, and how we have survived, despite the ups and downs, the challenges and issues. We are still here. Some are dead through accidents, robbery, kidnappings and even terrorist attacks. Some lives have been lost through sickness and as I speak many are still in the hospital down with one ailment or the other; a situation they didn’t plan for or anticipated at the start of the year.

But no matter what your situation or circumstance is currently good or bad, the common fact is you’re still alive and you’re still here.

Your mind is still intact, you’re not insane. You’re still among the living. And can i say to you this morning that no matter how bad you think your situation is right now, a living dog is far better than a dead lion.

 

TODAY ON FRANKLY SPEAKING - INSPITE OF THAT FACT.

I presume many of us probably woke up this morning with that subconscious state of mind underscoring a fact that things are just the same.

The year is fast drawing to a close, we believe we've tried as much as we can since the year begun and as it appears, our desires are not just yielding to us.

We look back at the whole year and it's unfolding, remembering all that happened, all we expected to happen and did not, some pleasant surprises and some disappointing developments. We sum it all up and begin to question if the year has really being that fantastic and if there are any more phenomenal surprises before the end of the year.

Is this how it would end? Is this the whole stuff, is there anything more; anything new, something different, any new excitement before the year? Many of us are still wondering.

What is your name? What really is your name? Of course all of us were born and named primarily for identification and recognition and secondarily for purpose, wish and destiny.

Especially in Africa, we do not just name people, the names have meanings. It’s actually tied to something, somewhere, an event or even divinity.

Many African names has the almighty involved. And it’s about God doing something or being appreciated for something. Also we name people after older people we love, appreciate and would want to remember.

We also name people on the account of their ancestral descent; your lineage may be known for some great achievement or title and you may be named after such title or ancestral achievement.

We give names typically for identification, recognition and purpose. So I ask again this morning, what is your name.

It has become the evasion excuse for failure, stagnation, on-performance and indolence. It has become the reference point for both the genuine and non-genuine. When there are discussions on why people are struggling, underperforming or not making any headway in life, the response you get automatically is ‘the economy’. Everybody blames the economic environment first for nearly every negative occurrence in their lives. They blame the political class, public service officials, and everybody in public administrative position for all the negative developments in their lives holding them down.

Ask a man why he can’t feed his family, he says the economy, ask a woman why she’s not doing anything useful with her time, energy, talent and skills, she says the economy, ask why a very healthy youth is not engaged productively in employment he says it’s the economy.

You hear almost everybody complaining about the state of the economy. It’s rife to keep hearing lack of this and lack of that, we do not have this in place or that in place.

Dear friend can i ask you an important question this morning? Why are you working? Think about it; why are you working? Could your number one or only reason be to make ends meet? Are you working to pay bills, meet needs; be comfortable and socially relevant? Why are you working?

he second question is why are you working where you're working? Why are you in that organisation and not somewhere else? Are you there because there was vacancy, you applied and got the job? Are you there because the company has a good corporate image and you want to be a part of the family? Are you working there because the pay is good and salary is regular? Are you working there because it's flexible and can afford you time for other things like family and all. Hmmm

The third question is, your reason for working and your reason for the choice of where you work; is it a short run consideration or a long run consideration?Your reason for working; that reason for working would it still be a good reason in 15, 20 or 25 years from today? The reason for your choice of work place; would it still be valuable, relevant and tenable in 10, 15 or 20 years’ time?

LOOK FOR IT!.

Leadership is not an easy task; you must keep going in the face of opposition, tough challenges and frustrations. At the same time you cannot afford to disappoint, mislead and mismanage those following you no matter how annoying, naughty and treacherous they become. If you succumb to their ploy, you would have failed in delivering your leadership mandate.

Leadership is also a selfless venture; your personal interest, pleasure and convenience must frequently be sacrificed in the interest of the vision. You must give up on some things you really want and desire, if you don't, you may truncate your ability to inspire trust, loyalty and commitment from your followers.

Leadership is not easy; it requires a great deal of emotional strength and psychological stability to progress rapidly.

You will face all manner of issues, setbacks and challenges on your way. It's only the tough and strong that survives. Leadership is not for sissies.

Everyone in life wants the good part of living; the fun, the progress, the prosperity and pleasure. Everyone wants to be happy and successful. Everyone hopes for the good and rejects the bad, everyone wants the blessings and the ease of access; no one likes to struggle and give so much to obtain the good they want out of life. Many of us want life to be exclusively easy and rosy; no bad just good.

May I say this morning that this kind of mindset and desire is absolutely a fantasy? Life is not designed that way. Good and bad is the name of the game. The good and the bad are inter related, you can't access the positive without experiencing the negative if not; you will destroy the positive.

The negative exist to develop your capacity to handle and manage the positive effectively. The negative, no matter how much you hate it, serves to prepare your body, soul and spirit to cope, manage and even improve on the positive side of life.

I sit a lot of times and really think deep about the issues of life; the challenges we face daily and why we keep struggling through life. I see many people crying, trying, struggling and hustling daily to make ends meet so as to enjoy a decent life.

For many the harder they try, the harder it seems life gets with them. So many of us are so uncomfortable in life, we look at our dreams, expectations, desires and plans and all we can do is hope and wish for a miracle.

The power to make it happen appears to be far removed from our reach. We see life as something that is above and beyond what we can comprehend, apprehend or manage and we just take the days as they come.

Because we have given up charge, many of us have become religious extremist to a point where common sense is now failing. We do a lot of unwise things and get scammed by people of lesser intelligence simply because they claim they have exclusive access to divinity and have the power to solve your problems; problems they also have.

And as I look at you I see you with great possibilities and opportunities to be the best you can. I see you exhibit exciting traits and potentials for uncommon success and achievements. I hear you speak, I watch you perform and you're your dreams and know if you would just activate you'll definitely become great and unstoppable. You are very intelligent and gifted, you are full of fresh ideas and concepts, you belong to a people with the capacity to comprehend trends and events; you can predict trends and forecast outcomes. You indeed have astute analytical skills, you understand business, investments, politics, financials and can effectively dissect the interplay of all functional sectors within a given economy or region. You are respectable, you are good.

The challenge however is this; you cannot effectively translate all you have and know into profitable ventures. You lack the capacity and especially will to build a thriving enterprise, to materialize concepts or ideologies on all you've got.

You know so much, have answers, know the solution but lack the will to translate all you're worth into great profit for you or your society.

As I get older and celebrate one birthday after another, on a day as such when all the hype and pump and excitement and celebration is over, in the quiet of the evening, when I'm all by myself, I end every birthday celebration sober; at times in tears, asking myself how far have I come, what have I achieved thus far? At times become so anxious about my future; wondering in another twenty or thirty years, when I look back over my life, will I be weak and weary from age or weighed down by regrets and disappointments; of things that could have been or should have been but never was because I was too laid back, weak, full of excuses or not courageous enough to try.

I look at my life and review my dreams and vision and become worried each time knowing I could be running out of time and very fast too in view of my dreams and the lofty things I'd love to do and accomplish before my strength is depleted.I know when I'm old enough and waiting to depart to the great beyond, life can either leave me lonely, sad and abandoned or still active influencing, encouraging, advising and directing the next generation
