It's natural for an unborn child; a living soul still in the womb to be unaware of its own existence. It's natural for a baby in the womb to be unconscious of the fact that he is already alive; eating, growing, moving and generally exhibiting all the characteristics of a living being, yet be unaware of the fact that it's alive and living.

Even a brand new baby of a few weeks can be pardoned to be unconscious of whom he is and his environment; he will not be judged or criticized about not been aware of himself and this life. It is allowed.

Now the fact that it is allowed does not rule out the fact the baby is growing and advancing in age.

Weather this baby is aware of himself or not, aware of his environment or not, aware of his world or not, time has no respect or regard for that.

We all want to be comfortable. We want a comfortable lifestyle; that life that would give us the peace that comes with meeting obligations, responsibilities, fitting in and self-preservation and personal pride. We just want to make sure were socially and economically okay.

We work so very hard, search for new things, seek fresh opportunities and try to put in our efforts in ensuring we are…okay.

A good, enjoyable, peaceful life is not an illusion. Happiness is for real, joy is for real, peace is for real, fulfilment is for real; these are not things that are impossible, these are not experiences that are mere imaginations, some people are actually happy, contented, comfortable and fulfilled.

Please understand me; a happy life is different from happiness as in emotional state. You can have a very happy life but still occasionally feel bad and unhappy on the account of events that occur in and around you that make you feel bad.

START YOUR NEW YEAR RIGHT,INFORMATION IS POWER,BE THERE!.

A gentleman in his late-forties began to share with me his concerns and challenges regarding his career future. He was also confused, unsure about what next to do. He's worked for well over twenty years, moved across different organizations in his industry, held different positions and functioned in various capacities; though very senior in his current employment and earning very good income, it dawned on him he's got very few more years left in employment. He began to review his employment status and was wondering how valuable he would still be to any employer in another 10 years.

He's one of the many people who used to believe some people are designed for paid-employment only and not everyone can run a business. Now drawing close to fifty, the reality he would eventually need to employ himself in order to sustain a relatively comfortable life after his exit from paid employment had hit him.

Like many, he used to assume and lived in the delusion paid employment would last a lifetime; now he's come to realize self-employment must of necessity follow paid employment if scarcity and untold poverty and hardship would not become his lot.

Are you a lie? Are you a lie? Who really are you? Who are you and who do you struggle to make people think you are? How far apart is the real, original you from who people assume, think, believe and perceive you are?

How many of us can really boast that as we really are, is how everyone know us to be?

How many personalities do you have? What is the real purpose of creating your multiple personality?

Many of us today invest so much time and energy maintaining the complexities we have made of our lives and living. We have grown into a lifestyle that thrives on creating impressions and painting pictures just to make people think we are something different from the original us.

The colloquial language for that these days is called forming. They say you're forming once they see through your pretense.

You see one of the greatest mitigations to anyone progressing very fast towards accomplishing real great goals on time is the challenge of multiple personalities; forming.

TODAY ON FRANKLY SPEAKING - GAINNING MASTERY FROM INSIDE OUT.

Gaining mastery, gaining mastery, what really does it mean to gain mastery? What is the meaning of mastery? Why do you need to gain mastery in any area of your life and in this case your career? What does it mean to master something?

I personally believe mastery is the ability to fully understand or comprehend something to the end that you can effectively control or utilize it for a desired purpose. Gaining mastery is the ability to acquire the required understanding and handle of something for you to be able to manipulate or control as you please.

For example no matter how much you love cars and appreciate the beauty of any steel on wheels, your fulfilment can not be complete until you learn how to drive cars and you can drive it successfully. Some people love to fly and for them learning to fly a plane will bring so much pleasure.

Let's tweak this a bit, there are some things you must gain mastery over in order to achieve a higher purpose in life for example in academics, for you to become a graduate you must have a good handle and mastery of subjects like mathematics and the English language in Nigeria, your physics, further math's and the likes are critical subjects you must master to become an engineer.

No one travels a long distance without a luggage. Definitely you're expected to pack for a journey depending on your route, distance and destination. Of course the content of our cases are different, and this is a factor of what you consider important for your journey and what you think is not necessary.

Great career journeys can be tough and challenging. Every mile stone is arrived with a lot of determination and effort. It's not an easy journey for anyone; however, this interesting and necessary journey can perhaps be made easier if you chose to travel light.

A man travelling with a back pack or a knap sack will find the journey relatively easier than a man with several suit cases.

Travelling light makes the journey relatively easier to manage, less stressful and at times faster. Many today on their career journeys carry so much baggage and luggage hence; they are weighed down and burdened to a point of fatigue and stagnation.

Many of us today are not doing or accomplishing much in life simply because we lack the humility and patience to start small.

As humans we all have dreams, Irrespective of our backgrounds and childhood experiences we all have very exciting and lofty dreams of greatness and success in life. Many of us desire ownership of certain kinds of businesses, we desire certain levels in career, we long for certain awards and recognition and at least a degree of wealth and comfort.

We want to live in certain areas, travel to certain destinations, drive certain cars or even own private jets!

The interesting part of these dreams lies in the fact that we see the end of the dream and focus on it much more than the beginning.

Let me explain, if you have the dream of owning a car manufacturing company, your imagination will dwell more on the end product or finished product.

TODAY ON FRANKLY SPEAKING - PREDICT YOUR FUTURE.

Another powerful influencer of our decisions and style of life is the fear of the future.

As humans we are usually intimidated by the unknown. What we do not know really overwhelms us and destabilizes our confidence and coordination.

What we can't correctly predict tends to overpower the strength of our minds and capacities of our being and we fret and become afraid.

A matter as trivial as asking a girl out on a date can make a man sweat so much, bring anxiety and sleeplessness simply because he's not sure she would say yes or no.

Waiting for your turn in a job interview session, waiting for a list of shortlisted candidates for admission or even waiting for an examination or medical test result can be very intense and disorientating for most of us.

A meeting with your MD/CEO, high powered decision making delegation or even the owner of your place of employment can make you sweat so much in tension and apprehension simply because you can't predict correctly or precisely how that meeting would turn out.

Education is a critical aspect of consideration for any government interested in safeguarding the future of her nationhood.

All nations around the world devout huge budget to education and its development, every responsible parent will of course prioritise the education of the children and would always be top burner in family budgeting.

Many parents suffer so much, sacrifice so much and endure hardship just to make sure their children are educated.

Why is this the case, I’ve pondered on several times in recent past? Especially in a country like Nigeria where unemployment is on the rise and the relevance of many courses is low due to under development or non-existence of key sectors where practice can be carried out.

Many graduates in Nigeria today are in careers and fields of practice that have no relationship whatsoever with their certifications or qualifications.

Recently I was in a conversation with a gentleman who was in his mid-forties. He was not very happy with his current employers, he was of the opinion they weren't appreciating his contribution that much hence, were sidelining him in critical matters of the business.

He felt it wasn't right, him being a senior manager and a departmental head. Frustration was setting in and he was looking for employment with another company.

I asked why he was looking for another employment; he looked at me funny and puzzled, of course to survive he blustered.

If I leave where I'm at and don't get another job how do I survive, how do I pay my bills, run my home, how do I cope with my responsibilities, I'm a husband, a father and a son, I have responsibilities; Muyiwa what are you getting at; he suddenly asked as if another thought flashed through his mind.

I've been observing and I think most of the problems we come across everyday as people don't just happen on us, most are not unexpected developments, they are challenges that most often than not, we know will eventually surface but for no apparent reason we leave it till it's too late.

For example, many of us today do know that sooner or later some financial obligations and requirements will fall due; we know we shall be spending some money soon, yet we do nothing about making provision till it's too late.

For example, a colleague was telling me about a relative who suddenly showed up in their house asking for financial assistance regarding his wife whom had just put to be in a hospital.

This new father had no money at all. He couldn't pay the hospital bills, couldn't buy the medications, in fact all the essentials required for the birth of a new baby, including the towel, olive oil, dippers, medicated powder, bathing soap, flask for warm water everything was not on ground.

The about-to -deliver wife went to the hospital on the day of delivery as though she was paying a visit. There was nothing at all on ground.
