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

In general definition marketing is the ability to identify needs and satisfy these needs at a profit.

Key words are identifying, needs, satisfaction, profit. Which means the ultimate purpose of any commercial venture is to make profit, to earn a reward, to be compensated. This can however only be justifies when a need is satisfied.

A mere glace at the nation Nigeria paints a vivid picture of a people, a market, over 100 million consumers with plenty of needs. Daily in your interactions, from the media and personal experience, you'll agree with me that many of this are not in place in Nigeria. Every day we keep asking, clamouring and advocating for one need or the other to be met or met satisfactorily. Both the public and private sectors have been criticised severely for the inability to meet needs or satisfy these needs. And as the world continue to evolve and become more sophisticated, the need gap in Nigeria is continually expanding.

The unfortunate state of affairs in Nigeria in my submission lies more with our personal and individual mentality order than collective failure in achieving greatness.

Sometimes life can be confusing. Recently I began to meditate and ask myself where I should, really draw the line between determination and desperation. Where is the line between materialism and a good life, where is the line between greed and having in abundance? And why should I be judged, criticized, hated and blamed for someone else's poverty, lack and insufficiencies just because I am not in those shoes?

Why should I be made to feel bad for instance for buying a new car simply because a relative or friend can't afford to pay school fees or his rent?

Why do I hear people, why do I see articles and social media updates often criticize people who are rich for acquiring possessions like luxurious houses, cars, clothes and all that and at the end tie their reasons for criticizing these guys to the excuse that there is poverty in the land?

The common English dictionary defines information as things that are or can be known about a given topic; communicable knowledge of something; a subject matter.

The world we live in today is a complexity of different topical situations, developments, forms, transformations and transitions.

As we go through life, different things happen every day, some we understand and so many more we do not clearly understand. Everyday thousands of researchers are supported with billions of dollars all over the world to tray, find out new things, make new discoveries and generate fresh information on different subject matters including people, geographies, animals, weather and climate, sickness and diseases, space travel and the galaxy, agriculture and food supplies, marine life, natural resources, science, technology and even the spirit realm. The world is extremely complex and interconnected and the ability to manage this planet effectively will be determined by how much facts we're able to generate.

Our journeys in life generally at different points are dubbed with transactions. In fact transactions are the critical and very frequent ventures to any life with meaning.

Life is not just about an entry and an exit, life is more about an entry, a purpose a  vision, a mission, journey, an adventure, a pursuit, being persistent, accomplishments then fulfilment before finally; the exit.

Living a good life with meaning and significance must be driven by all these factors. Right from that point of entry life places demands on us to do something in order to get something.

 A day old baby can never get fed if it refuses to suck the mother’s breast milk. The milk is there alright and the mother is willing to give it, but the baby; just a few minutes or hours old has the responsibility of applying the muscles of the cheek and throat to get fed. From the very moment of entry into this world; all living things must do something to get what they want.
