Fear is a feeling and an experience that is fully rooted in the future. Without the future, fear cannot exist. Every form of fear is based on an expectation or anticipation of something negative. Every fear is of the future. You're afraid of a painful possibility, a negative development or a repeat of a bad experience.

Every form of fear is based on what you think may happen or could happen, not what has already happened. There is no fear of the past, no, the past is the root and source of regrets, regret belongs and is rooted in your past; fear comes and is rooted in your future.

Our reaction to fear however, as mankind is choices and decision. To address what you fear in the future, you make a choice and decision in the present, to mitigate, nullify or neutralise a possible negative or unpleasant future occurrence or situation.

I believe everyone is afraid of poverty. We hate to be broke, we hate the lack, embarrassment, disdain, disrespect and oppression that comes with poverty. No one appreciates a situation where money is the only answer and sadly, money is not available.

Consequently, money has become the control key for human effort in productivity and labour. If there's no monetary reward tied to employment, many people will not work.

want you to this morning take a second look at your life. Are you living the life you want or a life dedicated to earning? Is your daily activities and choices inspired, motivated and informed by the need to earn, or you're living a life you truly enjoy? Do you see a life dedicated to earning as the only kind of lifestyle; hence, you've decided to embrace it and call it life itself? If you have everything you want and everything you need in abundance will your lifestyle today still be your kind of life style?

Think with me this morning and lets go way back to when you were a child, your days in primary school, secondary school, university it was all about working hard to earn good grades and subsequently get a good job and ultimately earn good income. Even in career, it's been all about working hard daily to earn good income and keep growing your income so as to obtain all you need in life.

Please tell me, is this really the essence and purpose of being alive? Are we just here to keep working all our lives to earn and gather so many things and so much that we shall eventually leave behind whether we like it or not? I do not think so, I believe our lives should be much more than a dedication to earning; there must be more.

TODAY ON FRANKLY SPEAKING - CREATE YOUR OWN OPPORTUNITIES.

The world is full of opportunities and the major mitigation of opportunities is competition. If there is nothing and no one who can seize your opportunity you can never lose it. Opportunities don’t just disappear someone else takes it up. Someone faster, better, more fortunate, better position or better prepared.

Business opportunities, promotion opportunities, job opportunities, relationship, contacts, networking opportunities come up every day and every day, someone takes it up.

As much as we have these opportunities revealed, they are still insufficient compared to the number of people waiting to seize them. There is scarcity of opportunities and only the best prepared and best positioned can seize.

Come to think of it every time you lose an opportunity, your start-off time is further delayed. For example if someone gets promoted in your stead this year, you’ll have to wait for another opportunity maybe another year or two, meanwhile time will not wait for you or wait with you for the next opportunity; time waits for no one.

TODAY ON FRANKLY SPEAKING - THE WHYS IN OUR LIVES

Many of us today are living very confused lives. We live a life without purpose, vision, clarity or direction. We live a life of distraction, inconsistencies, complexities and frustration.

We are keen on making good success of our lives, but absolutely disorganised and chaotic in our approach to success.

After struggling mentally and psychologically to find answers and we can't, we let go of all the lofty dreams and high expectations and eventually settle for what we already have.

I'm sure left to many of us, we would want better houses, better cars, better clothing, better lifestyles and more money, if we know exactly how to acquire all these, we would indeed give it a shot, but we do not know how to go about acquiring all these without risking what we already have, hence we are scared

Many aren't making effort or venturing into greater endeavours due to uncertainties.  They are not sure if their great plans would work or fail, they focus more on the realities of failure rather than the possibility and glory of success and they'd rather remain as they are than risk all they have.

It's a common and popular prayer, at all times at various occasions, especially during birthdays, the prayer is always about long life and prosperity. I wish you long life and prosperity.

A long life is something we desire, cherish and appreciate. We all want to live long and fulfil the number of our days. We want to see our children's children, no one wants to die prematurely; long life is a blessing everyone prays for.

As much as we pray for long life and know it can only be handed and permitted by our creator, in my opinion, many hardly show any true appreciation for each day with the consciousness of it being a blessing or a privilege.

Many do not treat each day as a gift, we sleep; we wake up and just go about our daily activities as though we made the day happen.

We are daily overwhelmed by the various activities we have lined up for each day and we just keep going; all with the aim of securing, preserving and enjoying all we have even as we try to accumulate more.

I saw this movie about a man who had faced many challenges in life. An African American who was determined to succeed back in the days when racial discrimination was very popular and rife in America. He had very few privileges growing up, his father died quite early and his mum was a domestic servant in a white man's house. He saw how well the white masters children lived and this inspired him to do all he could to live a good life as well despite all odds.

With minimal education and few opportunities he worked very hard at odd jobs. He worked at a mining site, a construction site, as a cleaner at a gas station and a janitor at a mega size office complex. His dream was to raise enough money to open a barbing salon and make it the best and most outstanding in their Negro neighbourhood. He believed with hard work and dedication, he would have many branches of the salon and live the rest of his life in comfort and give his family the best he dreamt of.

Sadly, this was not to be as one horrible night, there was an attack on their neighbourhood by fellow black folks who were notorious gangsters. They burnt down his house and everything he had including all the money he had saved.

Being right is very important to your present and future success as an individual, do you do the right things or the easier stuff? Let's talk about that this morning; that way that seems right.

A truth that some of us Nigerians are disregarding today is that our current pressures and challenges as a nation is not a cause, but a consequence of many years of mistakes, mismanagement, wrong choices, irresponsibility and bad behaviours.

Today, we are paying the price of not doing things the right way and seeking purely after pleasure and easier ways out, not disciplined and proper ways of doing things.

In this life, no matter how prolonged a season of wrong doing, one day we shall be confronted with the consequences of our choices.

Collectively and as individuals, many of us are paying the price of the past and we are actually not victims of the current as many people insinuate.

One development I'm so pleased with though is the alertness of the electorate, Nigerians have woken up suddenly and they are beginning to question and interrogate the activities and policies of the elected, it's a sign of growing democracy.

Of all the nations in the world, why did your maker choose to make you a Nigerian? What do you think he had in mind when He decided that you should be a Nigerian? Let's talk on that this morning, I've titled this one The best and the rest.

There is a Yoruba adage that says a river that forgets its source will consequently dry up. Dear friend, where are you from? Now I don't mean your native land, your village or town or part of the country, no, that is your entry point, what I mean is how often do you think about your source as a human being? As a complete, complex, reasonable creature, do you ever consider where you're from?

How much thought do you give to where you come from as a human being? Have you given time to really study life and uncover evidence and proof of your source and who created you?

I'm glad that as a nation, we are believers in God as the creator of all things and all men. And I believe many of you listening to me this morning believe in God and acknowledge Him as the source of all things on earth.

You agree by the things which are seen and the very complex balance of life and the logical interaction and inter-dependence of all things living and non-living, the earth did not come to be by accident. It's too precise, too structured, too organised, too self-regenerating and balanced to be a product of chaos or sudden explosion. God made the earth, God made all things including you.

Apparently many of us are not very excited about our condition as a nation right now. We are facing very challenging times in our socioeconomic life. Rising cost of goods and services, destruction and threat to life and national assets, conflicts and tension along ethnic and tribal divides, job and social insecurity, fear, anxiety and uncertainty.

I imagine you waking up daily worried and wondering how you will cope with the economic crisis especially. How much do you earn, how much can it buy, what else can you do, how on earth will you cope?

Cost of foodstuff, cost of transportation, cost of essential commodities, cost of clothing, electricity, fuel, rent, school fees; even social interaction. Things appear very difficult on all fronts and you can't just seem to think of ways out.

Everywhere you turn, everywhere you go; the gist is the same. Things appear difficult for everyone. No one appears to have any extra money to spare or lend or give to you. The pages of the papers, the television, the radio all reports similar. Things are getting tighter, times are rougher, everyone appears to be going through right now and to many, it's difficult to see the light at the end of the tunnel.

One of the listeners to this talk show called me after one of the episodes I ran in the course of the week. He wasn't very happy with me. In his opinion I was being unrealistic with the situations on ground in Nigeria. He couldn't relate with my advocacy that Nigerians should be committed to building and sustaining a great nation with a system that works efficiently. As usual he placed the blame squarely on the shoulders of the government. He began to list out all the things that are not in place; lack of basic infrastructure, declining economic fortunes, rising cost of goods and services, growing unemployment, lack of power supply, wide spread insecurity and the likes.

He became quite emotional and he said to me, Muyiwa I am paid just 30000 naira a month as salary. I have four children, my office is very far from my home because I choose to live where I can conveniently pay my rent.

With the current cost of petrol, it's practically impossible for me to survive these days, he said. How do I go to the office every day and return when it will now cost almost half of my 30,000 naira to transport? How will I eat lunch during break at the office out of the 30 000 naira every day? How do I feed my family out of the 30,000 naira, how do I clothe my family, pay rent, pay school fees, take care of my parents and even pay medical bills out of just 30,000 naira?

If I have more than this one opportunity at life, if it's possible to return to this earth and re-live my life, if it's possible to have more than one chance at life, perhaps it will be okay to experiment with this one life I've got right now. Maybe it will be okay to toy and play with time, opportunities and possibilities.

But since there is no realistic, factual or proven evidence of another opportunity to re-live this life on earth, It is just wisdom for me to look at this one life I've got, value it, appreciate it and make the best use of it no matter how long or short it is.

It is wisdom for me to exit this world with gladness in my heart, peace in my mind, and joy that I didn't hold anything back but gave this life my best shot.

It is also wise to be fulfilled, happy and have no regrets what so ever at the end of my days. That is why it is very important I allow no one deny me this privileged of a happy and fulfilled life.

The world is dominated and controlled by people who don't make excuses or try to explain things away outside of the facts, proof and logic.

Individuals interested and desperate for answers about why things happen the way they happen have uncovered principles and natural laws with evidence of guaranteed success if the laws are correctly applied.

For example, millions of aeroplanes have been manufactured over the years and they all fly simply because the manufacturers discovered the secret of how to make a plane fly and they apply this discovery and principle in the manufacture of every single aircraft that's why every well designed aeroplane according to this proven discovery and principle must fly.

Looking at this analogy critically, it simply means success is predictable. If you can discover and understand the secret and principle of how to succeed at anything and apply it to your own situation correctly, you shall succeed too.

Many of us don't like hard times in life. We hope and long for times of ease, pleasure and comfort. We do not like pressure or tension. We hate pain and discomfort. This of course is understandable because of the suffering and distress induced by pain physically and psychologically. As mankind we naturally love to be comfortable.

But for us to grow and develop as humans in a society, we must cease to see pain from the perspective of hurt and discomfort alone, we must begin to see pain from the dimension of transformation and purpose.

There is a purpose for every pain as every pain carries within itself the capacity to transform and change you so as to grow you. No matter how much you hate it and can't handle it, pain is an essential aspect human life.

Individuals who have leant and understood pain as a necessary part of human development, growth and progress have actually conquered the fear of pain. These are people who take very high risks without fear of pain and have subsequently conquered the world to a large extent. We call them the advanced nations of the world.

The very many people and nations that hate pain, resist pain or avoid pain ironically experience the worst kind of pain owing to poverty, lack, sicknesses, disease and premature deaths.

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.

No matter how weak, tired, frustrated and depressing you may feel this morning, i want you to know it's for a season and if you keep pressing on you'll see a change faster than you can imagine.

For those who are comfortable, happy, satisfied and fulfilled, I'll like to challenge you also that there is more to you than this level, there is so much more you can acquire, achieve and accomplish. You have so much in you that the world needs and is waiting for you to unleash.
