Now to today's episode which is Make Today Your New Years Day!

Warriors, this is September and obviously late in the year. It is common for most of us to think that it is very hard to start afresh at this time of the year.

My question for you today is..

Why not?

Remember, yesterday is gone and you can't change it but today and tomorrow are in your hands. It is now time to learn from yesterday and then go build your tomorrow.

An African proverb says;

Whenever any man wakes up, is their morning!

Another Chinese Proverb also says:

The best day to plant a tree was 10 years ago bu the next best time is TODAY!

Here is my call to action to you today;

  1. Declare today your new years day.

  2. Decide your targets in the next year.

  3. Study and Research to understand what it takes to achieve your targets.

  4. Draw up a plan!

  5. Finally, go to work on it from today.. Relentlessly!

Please help me share this message with 7 friends and family especially those struggling at this point in life.

111: The Warrior’s Mindset for Adversity

Welcome to episode 111 of the Unchained Warrior Podcast. It’s great to have you here again and welcome if you are joining us for the first time.

The Unchained Warrior Podcast episodes are designed to be timeless so in your spare time, please go back and listen to other episodes. I know you will find it useful. Kindly leave your comments, rate this podcast on iTunes and Stitcher Radio to enable more people find it.

Now to today's episode which is "The Warrior's Mindset for Adversity"

Warriors, Life is tough, no doubt and if you listen to the news every day you hear all sorts of terrible news. From hurricanes in the Philippines and Americas to flooding in India and Nigeria and Ebola and Cholera outbreaks in places in Africa.

All these come with lots of destruction of businesses, livelihood and hope! It is hard to wake up and have your home destroyed or a loved one taken away by an illness. It’s hard to lose a job you have had for years to redundancy or even the shutdown of the organisation.

The list goes on and these are situations we face in these times. Despite these, we all have our dreams and ambitions to fight for as warriors.

Here is the big question; how do we find strength to fight on?

Here are my thoughts around it...

Adversity is a Season

It is crucial that we understand that in life there are times and seasons for everything. This bad patch is one of those seasons and will surely pass very soon. It is therefore necessary that we prepare ourselves for these situations even if things are going very well for you today. We must also find time and resources to support people in this difficult season of life!

We are Stronger than Adversity

We are all stronger than we give ourselves credit for. If you can look back, you will find that you have fought and won similar battles in the past. So if you keep hope alive, you will win this one too!

Adversity has Great Benefit

 

Adversities are simply tests to qualify us for the next level. You see in life, we easily adapt to our comfort zones but we are created for much more! Life has a way of pushing us out of our comfort zones so we can grow; unfortunately it is usually a painful process. As you know the process of refining any material involves a lot of difficult processes which includes high temperatures and pressure in most cases. It is same with growth; it is always painful!

These words by W Clement Stone say it best:

Every great man, every successful man, no matter what the field of endeavour, has known the magic that lies in these words: every adversity has the seed of an equivalent or greater benefit.

Adversity Builds Character and Life Skills

Warriors, adversities help us to develop character and important life skills that can only be learnt from experience. Stephen Covey said:

Just as we develop our physical muscles through overcoming opposition - such as lifting weights - we develop our character muscles by overcoming challenges and adversity.

Think about this and find the lessons from your adversity and arm yourself with the skills to go back and try again. Benjamin Disraeli said:

There is no education like adversity.

Warriors, I hope this will strengthen you right now and in the future. I have enjoyed doing this episode; I hope you find it helpful.

Please help me share this message with 7 friends and family especially those struggling at this point in life.

Thank you and best wishes for the new week.

Abundant blessings to you!!

110: The Keys to Staying True To Yourself

It’s with great pleasure that I come to you today on this episode on The Keys to Staying True to Yourself.

We most times we end up very unhappy and wonder why. Many life events trigger certain changes in us as natural response to those situations. Our sole aim is to protect us from such re-occurrence in the future.

The sad part of this dynamic is that, life is full of events that may not be in our favour so we continue to change and make these adjustments until one day we wake up and realise that we have lost our “true self”! Once we lose our true self – the person we were born to be; unhappiness sets in, we lose track and our dreams are derailed.

Unfortunately, it is very difficult to see this happening until it has changed us completely because the process is very gradual.

It is based on this discovery that The Unchained Warrior Podcast was born.

A few years ago, I lost close to $30,000 to a fraudster while trying to help a friend buy a generator for his hotel in Nigeria. I came out of this deal, bruised and therefore made a very firm decision that I was done helping people in any shape or form.

 

However, I found that I was unhappy doing this as I met people in trouble that I would usually help and let them go without trying to help.

This is the danger of losing your true self!

I tried to be who I am not because I was hurt instead of seeking other options of staying true to myself.

Once I realised this, I spent some time thinking about it. It is in this process that I discovered that I can still continue to help but be careful how I do it to protect myself in the process. That is how I decided to create The Unchained Warrior Podcast, to inspire 1 billion people to live to their full potential.

 

When I made this decision, the anger dis-appeared and happiness re-appeared. Simply because I am staying and living true to my real self.

Warriors, if you or any one you know is at this stage in their life’s journey. I have some tips that will help. This is very crucial to good life, happiness, success and even greatness. This is because:

“it is in being your true self that greatness is discovered!”

Here are the suggestions on how you can avoid losing your true self:

  • Discover who you really are and your life’s purpose and impact. If you struggle with this answer these questions: What are my good at? What are my sad about in the world today? Finally, what do most people come to me to help with? The responses to these questions will be your answer.
  • Find safe ways to deliver that to the people around you. Think self first because there has to be “You” before the people you are trying to help.
  • Remove people who do not appreciate you for who you are: These are people who are always disregarding your help and support towards them. To these people, it is your duty to help them and they have no appreciation of the help you offer. Get rid of these people as they will eventually annoy you and make you lose your true self.
  • Also remove people who discourage you from being and living your true self. There are always those people who see you as mad because of your dreams and your personality. Basically people who do not believe in you. Get rid of this group of people. They will eventually destroy your confidence in yourself and your dreams. Unfortunately, if you lose your confidence, you have lost everything.
  • Make time to search yourself: Ask and answer certain questions like are my being my true self? What type of impact are my having on the people around me and the society at wide? Etc. That way, you will keep yourself in check and live true to yourself.

Warriors, the truth is that you will never live happy, achieve success, greatness or have impact on the people around you unless you live true to yourself so it is a duty we all owe ourselves and the society to live true to ourselves.

 

I am hoping that this will help you as you go through this week and the rest of the year.

Thank you and best wishes for the new week.

109: Why "BETTER" is actually better than "BEST" - The Power of "BETTER".

Its a huge pleasure coming your way again this week.

Welcome back to The Unchained Warrior Podcast. If you are listening for the first time, thank you and welcome. Remember to subscribe and share this message with your friends and family.

Lets go to today's episode; why "BETTER" is actually better than "BEST".

We were all taught to rank things by;

GOOD, BETTER and BEST

Therefore we have all grown up believing that the "best" is best but today I want to challenge this belief and explore ways that we can use this different way of thinking to move to the next level.

If will remember, when learning in schools, the teacher would say; "that's good or other times that's better". However, teachers hardly talk about the "best". This is simply because they know that "better" is the best. Teachers always aim to push the student to keep making progress.

Why do I believe that "better" is better than the best?

..simply because I know that better creates room for improvement rather than a status of perfection or complacency.

This is why I believe that "BETTER" is the "BEST"!

No matter how good you are in your work, business, life or relationships; it is critical that you...

STRIVE TO GET BETTER!

There is always room for improvement

The quest for "BETTER", guarantees growth in all areas of your life.

Anything that is not growing is dying!

Warriors, if you want your business, your job, relationship or life in general to be alive;

Strive for better, because "BETTER" is better than "BEST"

Call to Action

Warriors, I want you to do this for me today:

  • Make some to time this week to sit down alone and make a note of all the things that matter to you in life and also your desired contribution to your community and the world.
  • Think of ways to make them "BETTER".
  • Set out a plan of action to make them "BETTER"
  • and finally start working on them.

If you do this, you will enjoy the power of "BETTER"

Thank you and best wishes for the new week.

Please help me share this message with 7 friends and family especially those struggling with their goals, dreams and ambitions in life. This could lift them up and they will be grateful to you.

Abundant blessings to you!!
