7 Success Lessons from Nigerian Idol Reality TV Show

person standing on hand rails with arms wide open facing the mountains and clouds

Another season of Nigerian Idol Reality TV Show started yesterday (Sunday 23, April, 2023).

I watch the reality show because of the lessons imbedded therein;

  • It shows that you must have a vision to get what you want out of life. A clear vision is an indication to the universe that you know what you want. In return, the universe will work towards bringing all the resources (people, money, platforms, ideas, etc) your way. These young men and women go into the competition with one goal – to win the coverted prize. What is your ONE GOAL in life?
  • In order to win the prize, they will need a vehicle, in this case their natural ability, skill, passion, interest, gift, etc. Music is the vehicle that will drive them to the coverted prize. What is your natural ability, skill, passion or interest? Your gift will make way for you..
  • They are currently in the reality show to get their potential unlocked. In the course of the next few weeks they will be in the house, they will be exposed to coaches, mentors, teachers, etc, who will horn their skills and prepare them for life. None of them will win the prize with their current form. Instead, everything about them, including their mindset will have to be upgraded. Watch out, the same person (character, minset, attitude, skill, perspective – wise), will not be the same person that will win the prize. They would have all been transformed to a better version of themselves to win the prize. In order to have you achieve that ONE GOAL, you must work towards transforming into a better version of you. This better person is the one prepared to achieve the one goal. Nigerian Idol Reality TV Show is building those guys for success.
  • Success takes prepartion. In this case, they will be in the house for weeks, preparing until their lives improves. There is always a prepartion period before success. Subject yourself to adequate preparation. Pay the price to win the prize
  • Patience and Sacrifice is key to achieving any worthy goal in life. They left parents, friends and loved ones to pursue their dream. Most times you may have to give up something good for something great.
  • Success is a journey that requires consistency and constant practice. The guys will be in the house for the next couple of weeks. Practising and showing up is a vital component of success. Giving up on your dream is not an option!
  • Monitor every element about the contestants and watch how they get transformed at the concluding stage.

Those are the few success lessons I thought of sharing with you from the ongoing Nigerian Idol Reality TV Show. Apply them and watch your life soar to greater heights.

How to Earn Legitimate Money Online – 7 Benefits of Online Business with focus on Affiliate Marketing

young woman using laptop at vintage cafe

In today’s digital age, the possibilities of earning money online from the comfort of your home are endless. With the rise of the internet, more and more people are turning to online opportunities to generate income. One popular method that has gained immense popularity is affiliate marketing.

Affiliate marketing allows individuals to promote products or services of other companies and earn a commission for each sale or referral made through their unique affiliate link. Whether you’re a student, stay-at-home parent, or just someone looking to make some extra cash, earning money online through affiliate marketing can be a game-changer.

Here are 7 benefits of working online, with a focus on affiliate marketing
  • Flexibility: One of the biggest advantages of earning money online is the flexibility it offers. You can work from anywhere in the world, as long as you have an internet connection. This means you can create your own schedule, work at your own pace, and have the freedom to choose how much time and effort you want to dedicate to your online business.
  • Passive Income Potential: With affiliate marketing, you have the potential to earn passive income. Once you set up your affiliate links and create content, they can continue to generate income for you even when you’re not actively working on your business. This means you can earn money while you sleep or go on vacation, giving you financial freedom and security.
  • Low Start-up Costs: Starting an online business, including affiliate marketing, typically requires low start-up costs compared to traditional brick-and-mortar businesses. You don’t need to invest in physical inventory, rent office space, or hire employees. All you need is a computer, internet connection, and a website or a blog to get started.
  • Unlimited Earning Potential: Unlike a traditional job where your income is capped, earning money online through affiliate marketing has no limit to how much you can earn. Your earnings are directly proportional to the amount of effort and time you put into your business. As you gain experience and grow your online presence, your income potential can skyrocket.
  • No Prior Experience Needed: One of the best things about affiliate marketing is that you don’t need prior experience or technical skills to get started. Most affiliate programs provide training, tools, and resources to help you succeed. You can learn as you go and gradually build your skills while earning money.
  • Diverse Income Streams: With affiliate marketing, you can diversify your income streams by promoting products or services from multiple companies. This allows you to spread your risk and not rely solely on one source of income. You can also choose to promote products or services that align with your interests, passions, and values, making your work more enjoyable and fulfilling.
  • Scalability: Affiliate marketing offers scalability, which means you can start small and gradually scale up your business over time. As you gain more experience and grow your audience, you can expand your online business and increase your earning potential. This flexibility allows you to adapt and grow with the changing market trends and opportunities.

Are you ready to start earning money online from the comfort of your home? It’s never been easier to get started with affiliate marketing, even if you have no prior experience. One highly recommended product to kickstart your online journey is the “Affiliate Mastery Blueprint.”

This comprehensive online training program provides step-by-step guidance on how to build a successful affiliate marketing business from scratch. You’ll learn the strategies, techniques, and tools used by successful affiliate marketers, along with insider tips and tricks to accelerate your success.

Do you feel stuck or trapped? Here is what you should do

man in blue and brown plaid dress shirt touching his hair

It is not unusual to feel stuck or trapped when things aren’t going as planned. But it becomes a problem when you allow the situation get the better of you. I have seen people whose destinies have been truncated as a result of been stuck.

When you feel stuck or trapped in your life, it becomes almost impossible to be happy. Those who do feel stuck tend to feel depressed, frustrated and dissatisfied with their lives.

The truth is life is full of ups and downs. There will be times of great change, and times where nothing changes at all. Feeling stuck at some point in your life is normal, but that doesn’t mean you have to stay that way. Here, we’ll look at some of the best things you can do when you feel stuck or trapped in life.

Make That Tough Choice

There is a reason why you feel stuck or trapped in life, and it is often down to avoiding making a tough decision. For example, if you feel trapped in a job you hate, the tough choice would be to leave that job. If you are in a relationship that just isn’t working out, the hard choice would be to walk away.

What choice are you avoiding changing? Sometimes, the only way to move forward and be happy is to have the courage to make the difficult decisions. You deserve to be happy, so never be afraid to do what is right for you, no matter how hard it is. What is the point of continuing in a job or relationship that doesn’t make you fulfilled?

Begin With Small Changes

Making changes in your life can be overwhelming. Therefore, if you want to get out of your current situation, start with small changes until you feel comfortable and confident that you’re making good decisions. Think about the things you want to change and then figure out the steps you’ll need to get there. Working on change one step at a time prevents it from becoming overwhelming. You will see steady progress as you make smaller changes, giving you motivation to carry on making bigger ones. This one principles has helped me make significant advancement in virtually every area of life. Start small.

Work On Self-Improvement

How you feel about yourself can really hold you back. If you do feel stuck or trapped,

could it be down to a lack of confidence or self-belief?

Working on self-improvement can help you to view your life in a more positive way. You will be able to recognize opportunities and work through any challenges keeping you from your dream life. Think about your current flaws. What parts of you could you improve to be a better person? John Maxwell once said, ‘Personal Growth is the only guarantee for a better tomorrow’

Commit To Being Yourself

The problem could be that you aren’t being yourself in life. Many people struggle to be themselves around other people. If you are trying to present a fake version of yourself to others, you will never be happy. Only by being your true self will you be able to live a fulfilled and happy life. I learnt this many years ago. Define your values and let people know what you stand for.

Feeling stuck or trapped in life is common, but it doesn’t mean you need to stay stuck. The above tips and advice can help you to start moving forward and living the life you deserve. You may feel trapped, but it’s an illusion. Deep down you know what you need to do, you just have to summon the courage to do it.

Money – How to Earn Money Legitimately

a laptop near the dollars and papers on a wooden table

Although, a lot of people have equated the accumulation of money to success, I think success in life goes beyond material possesstion. In today’s article, I will be sharing my thoughts about money and how to earn money legitimately.

The truth is that, the money you desire or aspire to earn is in the hands of other people. The question is, how do you get people to willingly give you their money. The day I learnt this principle about money and how to earn it legitimately, my mindset about money changed for the better!

What you should know about money
  • Money is Good
  • Money is Important
  • Money is a Tool
  • Money is a Servant
  • Money is a Means of Exchange
  • Money is a by-product

I will be explaining the details in subsequent posts. In the meantime, I want you to put those concepts in mind as we proceed.

Misconception about money

The misconception about money has led many people astray. Here is what I mean, money is a visitor, it goes and stays where it is welcomed. Many people have built a wrong or negative mindset around money, such that they unconsciously chase money away. For instance, such people unknowingly have a wrong understanding of the Biblical quote about money…they say, money is the root of all evil. That is wrong! The Bible in 1 Tim 6:10 says ‘the love of money is the root of all evil’. The keyword there is ‘love of money’. Evil is not associated with money, but the love of money.

Mindset plays a role

The mindset you have around money also plays an important role in your relationship with money. For instance, such mindsets as;

  • Money is difficult to come by
  • I need to work hard to earn money
  • Rich people are thieves
  • I don’t have what it takes to earn money
  • I was not born rich, hence cannot be rich
  • Wealth is reserved for some people
  • I cannot be rich
  • My parents are not rich, hence I cannot be rich
  • Money don’t grow on trees
  • etc.

These type of mindset or belief around money will naturally influence your behaviour towards it, thus, determining the action or inaction you take. With this type of mindset, you should know what the result or outcome is; Lack, struggle, poverty, etc

    But imagine a mindset like this;
    • Money is good
    • I attract money
    • Money answeres to me
    • Money flows to me from everywhere
    • I have the ability to earn money
    • I am a money magnet
    • etc.

    These type of mindset will put you in a consistent state to receive money making ideas, influence your behaviour, thus propelling you to take the necessary actions that will enable you earn money legitimately. I should mention here that, this type of mindset will also attract the persons, resources, network, etc into your life, for the purpose of manifesting your belief about money.

    What you believe is what you manifest

    Going by what I have discussed so far about mindset, you would have discovered that the money or abundance that you manifest is determined by the dominant mindset or belief you uphold about money.

    How to earn money legitimately

    I am deliberate about my choice of words here. Note, I said legitimately. This is because there are illegitimate ways of earning money too.

    The first principle is to get your intention right. Why do you want money? As long as your motives are humane, be assured that the universe will make a way. Such intentions as; to help humanity, feed the hungry, provide the best life for ones family, advance a worthy cause, freedom, etc are noble and ideal. Your intention should not be selfish, greedy or manipulative (using people). Fix your intention.

    Identify the problem you can solve for a lot of people. How can you make life easy and sweet for others. Zig Ziglar once said, if you help a lot of people get what they want, you will get what you want. That principle works! Now, you see why your intention should be hinged on genuine purposes. Most of the genuinely successful people in the world (alive or dead), didn’t make money their primary objective for what they do. Money came as a result of what they do (by-product).

    Acquire and develop specilized skills or knowledge neccessary for solving the problem you have identified. I told you earlier that money is a means of exchange. In this instance, you will be exchanging value for money. Provided the value you offer is exceptional, people will willingly exchange their money.

    Package the value you offer in the most appealing form. It could in the form of a product, service, coaching, speaking, etc. The list is endless.

    Build your brand, position your offering in the right segment and communicate your unique selling proposition. Get your marketing strategy right.

    Final thoughts

    Improve your ability to offer the value and get exceptionally good at what you do. Improve everyday. Get better at what you do.

    Become difficult to be replaced. The idea here is to reinforce your uniqueness and make sure you are intentional about been consistent in horning your uniqueness. There are no two people on earth with the same combination of talents, gifts, ability, etc like you. Bring that to the fore!

    I assure you that you will earn money legitimately by following the principles shared in this article. Click Here to my ebook ‘Money is not your priority’

    Salary Alone will not make you Wealthy

    unrecognizable man holding wallet with money

    My friend George attended a seminar organized by his company; it was an eye opener for me, with lots of lessons learnt. Today, I want to share an article he gave me about salary and its long term effect on your future. I hope you will grasp something new from it. Happy reading:

    Research had it that the poorest groups of people in the world are salary earners, next are beggars. They live in a vicious cycle of poverty, Managed on a 30-day cycle, salary is continuously being awaited every month and any slight delay brings about heart-breaking anxiety, pressure and disappointment.

    Salary alone cannot solve your money problems. You need multiple sources of income to balance. The tax return form contains about 11 income streams, of which salary is just one… Don’t live Life fishing with just one hook; there are many fishes in the ocean.

    Salary is the MEDICINE for managing POVERTY, not to CURE it. Only your BUSINESS or INVESTMENT Cures Poverty!

    Most investors are not salary earners

    The difference between those beggars on the street and salary earners is one month salary. Truncate the flow of their salary for one month and you would realize that majority belong to the lower class. If you divide your salary by the rate of exchange, you will discover that you are poorer, relative to when you started work.

    Or divide your salary per annum by 2,000 hours to know what your one hour is worth. If you do not have three months’ salary in savings, you are already poor. Being a salary earner is a mentality, BREAK IT!!!

    Your worth is far more than your salary

    Salary is the value someone has put on your effort. How much do you value yourself? You can’t increase in value, unless you value yourself differently.

    Life is a trade-off between time, effort and reward. To be rewarded more, you have to become more valuable. Most salary earners end up poor in the long and short term.

    I therefore urge every one of us to be FINANCIALLY INTELLIGENT, FINANCIALLY LITERATE and OPEN OUR EYES TO SEE OPPORTUNITIES IN PROBLEMS. Delve into entrepreneurship because salary is a lifetime disappointment.

    Being a Salary Earner or Investor is a decision.

    Life will not change until you decide. Make the move!!!

    Your Comfort Zone is not Serving you – Tips to Leaving your Comfort Zone

    photo of man leaning on wooden table

    What is the relationship between the successful life you desire and your comfort zone? In this article, I will be discussing why your comfort zone is not serving you.

    In my opinion, a comfort zone is that state or position where you feel relaxed and contented about what you do or have. For instance, you could be a teacher working in a small school, but because you earn money enough to pay your house rent and take care of some needs, you feel satisfied and contented, such that you wouldn’t want to look for another job

    Another scenario is such that you are pleased with where you are and wouldn’t want to go seeking a better opportunity. Safe to say, you are comfortable enough, not to desire trying something new. This is one of the reason for failure, poverty and lack in the society.

    Since we have established that one of the causes of failure, poverty and lack is one’s inability to leave their comfort zone, then, we should be able to find a way out.

    It starts first from reconditioning your mind and getting your perspective right. What you become or how successful or how much money you earn is largely dependent on your mindset. Your belief system plays a major role in shaping what you become in life. It is therefore safe to conclude that your success or failure is proportional to your belief or conviction. In essence, you need to start believing in yourself and the possibility of achieving success.

    Every success achieved is driven by something greater on the inside. At this point, I will like to ask you a very simple question. What is your driving force? (What is your WHY). The compelling nature of a driving force keeps you dissatisfied with your current status or position. This is the kind of drive you need to propel you to action.

    To leave your comfort zone, you must then develop the desire and passion for a better status. Do not be satisfied with what you do or have, rather you should believe there is a better status, higher level, higher income etc. and aspire to surpass it. This should form the basis for your success in life

    Having said this, I hope you will start from this minute by first believing in yourself and the fact that you deserve a better life. Take deliberate and conscious steps towards leaving your comfort zone, because there is a better life than where you currently are. Truth is, you must be dissatisfied with where you are right now, in order to get to a higher level. This is the force that will drive or propel you to leave your comfort zone. Go out there and try something new, take that course, read that book, start that business, start living…Do it afraid.

    Like many of my articles, I hope this one has given you the impetus you need to leave you comfort zone and become a better you

    Stop Imitating Others – You Have a Unique Assignment

    focused young man with little sons sitting at desk

    Do you know that imitating others will mask your identity?

    I have always maintained that God created you for a unique purpose or assignment. How do I know this?

    Well, have you noticed that know two persons have the same innert abilities? People may look alike, but it has never been established that any two persons have the same DNA profile.

    You are UNIQUE! There can only be you.

    Given this truth, it establishes that you are gifted with unque abilities for the purpose of fulfilling a specific assignment on earth.

    If you were not needed, you wouldn’t be here.

    But, it is unfortunate that many people have lost their identity by way of imitating others. I mean, trying to be like another person.

    Imitating others simply means that your uniqueness is lost and you will be unable to fulfill your makers’ assignment.

    Meanwhile, the only assurance of a happy and fulfilled life is when you know your purpose and fulffill it.

    Your uniqueness is meant to stand you out in every sphere of life. But by imitating others you lost out completely this attribute.

    While it is not a bad idea to learn from other people,imitating and trying to be like them is where the problem lies.

    Some one once said, if you don’t plan your life, you will live someone esles’s plan and they will take you to a destination that you wouldn’t like.

    This explains why many people are living frustrated and unhappy lives.

    I am hoping this blog post will awaken you to the reality of your purpose on earth. You have a specific assignment and you were eqipped for it.

    One of the ways you can unlock your uniqueness is by becoming aware of your purpose on earth (why you are here).

    Discovering your purpose will help you align your natural ability, giftings, passion, interest, etc such that there is a synergy of those towards the fulfillment of your assignement on earth.

    This is how you gain personal mastery and become the best that God created you to be.
