Akande, popularly known as 'BORA' from department of Management of Accounting, Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife, Osun State, Nigeria.

The Most Effective way To Motivate Yourself

Motivation as a tool don't come in a cheap way. You have to put some necessary things in place to serve as a pulse which will drive you to act in order to achieve your set goals or objectives. Moreover, there are many ways you can be motivated; by persons, books, music, movies, TV Show etc.


However, some listen to music to get motivated, others by watching movies which push them to think positively towards achieving their goals. But for me, I think the effective ways you can get motivated are by reading books and get inspired by a great motivational speaker but there are also some effectives ways you can motivate yourself without the need of a speaker.

Firstly, you have to get your goals been planned every day efficiently and spend some time every day to focus on branding yourself and drive positively towards your dreams.

Thereafter, start your day by writing down those goals you want achieve on paper to help you visualize and see things into reality. Another important thing…

See Yourself As Your Problems

Never run away for your problem, whatsoever type of problems or difficulties you are facing, the only way I know you can overcome your problems or challenges is to see yourself as your problem and tell yourself, "I am the problem."


Whatever the situation, whenever you are faced with problems, there are two (2) things involved, the victims of the problem and the problem itself.

Looking yourself as the victim of your problem makes it difficult and compound the situation to the extent that solutions are no where to be found to solve these problems. You lose the power to conquer challenges when seeing yourself as the problem. However, when you see yourself as the problem, and say to yourself 'I am the problem' then I see a big potential and insight power to solve the problems.

Those who think and take themselves as victims of their problems always blame others for their flaws and errors. If they are not happy, it is someone else's fault. Even if they are sick it …

7 Mistakes New Business Owners Make

by Deborah A Bailey

For many of us, starting and running a business isn’t something that comes naturally. In school we’re instructed in how to choose careers, not start businesses.

If this is new to you, you will not learn how to do it after just one class in marketing, sales or writing a business plan. You will have to adjust your entire way of thinking.

Here are some mistakes that new business owners should watch out for (some of them will be familiar to you even if you’ve been in business for a while).

1. Spending lots of money on things you don’t need.  If you aren’t selling a lot of products you may not need an elaborate e-commerce set-up. Don’t plan on big product launches or obsess over having thousands of social media followers if you’re just starting out. You’ll be setting yourself up for failure if you try to follow the gurus (who have built their businesses over time) and believe that you can achieve the same success in 5, 8 or 10 easy steps.

2. Not wanting to spend any money on…

The Sacrifice of Success

Many people like to be called successful man or woman, even with clear indication human being like and want to associate themselves with successful people. Who does not like good things? Everyone wants to enjoy but does not sacrifice anything. Success is not built a day, it is a product of long perseverance, endurance, challenges and other difficult moments.

To succeed, there are many costs and sacrifices that person would make. The following are just few of the cost or what you will experience when you are on course for the success trip.

After six months of no conversation, Ron and Reva picked up from where they left. They talked for hours and nights together, they got to know each others routine, habits and almost everything. They understood each other more than anyone else did and the irony being that they had never met. Being thousands of miles away didn't matter to them. They exchanged numbers and soon his jawline was clear to her and her eyes were no longer a mystery to him.

One day deep into a conversation he realised he was in love with her; the butterflies in his belly indicated the nervousness that tickled him everytime he read her texts. Not even aware of what her middle name was, he was already planning about their wedding; just as he was about to dream of the wedding night, his brain pinged him back to reality.

An Inspirational Poem: Never Too Late

Never Too Late


Ever in an insanely freaky mood,
Broken a dear's heart, been that rude?
Seen those tears roll down their cheek,
And regretted why the hell did you even speak?
Then don't worry, just hurry, hear your inner voice,
'Cause it's never gotta be too late to Apologize.
Ever lost temper in a crazy fight?
Made your friends, enemies for life?
Humiliated them, insulted them, never been nice,
Just one misunderstanding severed all ties!
Grudges only weigh you down,
Never hold them for too long.
'Cause it's never too late to forgive and forget, Never too late to make relations strong.
Ever hated yourself for loving someone?
Denied your love 'cause the world will make fun?
Found your special someone out in the crowd,
But didn't have the guts to say it out loud?
Once you find the right person,
Just don't wait.
Leave the rest on fate. Confess your love before it gets too late.
Ever felt like you are blessed with all the troubles?
Your life's made hell and loneliness just …

Why Teleseminars and Webinars Could Be Your Secret Weapon

by Lisa Sasevich

 Several years ago when I launched my business, I had a newborn and a three year old at home. I was the breadwinner of my family, and I was constantly struggling to keep all the balls in the air that I was juggling.

Today, my kids are quite a bit older, I'm still the breadwinner and I'm still working from home, but my business is thriving to the tune of having now done more than $30 million in sales. Plus, I'm touching people all over the world - all while taking a yummy amount of vacation time.

People ask me all the time, how in the world do I do it all?

The truth is, I do have a secret weapon. I use a very simple tool over and over again: the teleseminar and webinar.

Teleseminars are audio trainings that are given over the telephone that people from all over the world can listen to. I've had people from 134 different countries listening in!

A webinar is similar, but adds a visual element, with your viewers sitting in front of their computers, tablets or sm…

The Time is Now! Believe in Yourself

The greatest motivational tool and skill an individual can have is to start believing in himself. Have confidence and abilities in whatsoever you are doing, because without self-confidence I don't think you can ever achieve anything let alone succeed in this life.


It seems somehow strange to me when some people look down at themselves, living not their self-life, struggling with the illness of inferiority complex. As a matter of fact, whoever lives in this situation and with this illness, the only way to cure this problem is with your self-confidence. You need not to suffer from this trouble when proper steps are taken and your inner powers are being unleashed to overcome any problem.

Some people disbelief in themselves and have no confidence at all in their abilities and they believe can never put it over. This shows the degree of their inferiority complex feelings, lack of confidence and self-doubt. The basic solution to this problem is to discover why you are having these n…

Ways To Easily Solve Any Problem

It is not doubt that as a human being we confront issues or let me say we face problems everyday of our lives. Ordinarily these issues or problems can really be an open door in mask. Taking care of problems can be separated into steps that will make explaining the current issue much simpler. You can recover the issue settled and get to your life.




 Identify the genuine issue. Regularly individuals think about an issue as far as its outcomes. You truly need to burrow to the base of the issues you are having and recognize the source. In the event that your issue is that you don't have enough cash you have to discover the foundation of you absence of assets. It might be poor planning, spending an excess of or something more terrible like a betting enslavement. Whatever the source is, that is the thing that you have to alter. 


 Come up with a list of solutions.Once you have recognized the genuine issue the time has come to concoct a rundown of solutions. More often than not there is mor…
