Habits of the Wealthiest People

Habits of the Wealthiest People

Have you ever wondered why some people seem to get exactly what they pursue in life? Is it luck or do they know something that the rest of the world doesn’t? The truth is luck is not the secret to their success.

Are the rich really smarter than you? What do they know that you do not know? What do they do that you do not do?

Here are the habits of the wealthiest people that ordinary people do not consistently pursue;

  • They Keep Routines. They keep routines around the following;
    • They always have a ‘to do list or action list.’ It helps keep track of what to be done and the priority.
    • They wake up 3 hours earlier than an ordinary person. Mostly before 5am.
    • They love to read and they read at least 30 minutes a day. They read books or magazines with topics on issues that improve their life and business.
  • They Live a Healthy Lifestyle. How many obese millionaires do you know? Hence they exercise aerobically at least 4 days a week. And the eat 30% less junk food that an ordinary person. Your bad health can distract you from reaching your full calling.
  • Television Habits. On average they watch 1 hour or less TV per day, and they avoid reality TV. Television is entertainment. The more entertainment a person has the less productive s/he becomes.
  • Raising Children. They actively groom their children with good habits.
    • Teach daily success habits.
    • Make children volunteer.
    • Encourage children to read at least two nonfiction books per month.
  • They Set Goals. Successful people always have a plan they are pursuing.
    • They write down their goals. People who do not have clearly written goals seldom achieve them.
    • They focus on accomplishing specific goals. They keep priority and first things come first.
    • They believe in continuous education for life. This makes them stay on top of their game.
    • They believe that good habits create opportunities.
    • Believe that bad habits have bad effects.
  • From Rags to Richs. 68% of millionaires are self-made. This means they did not inherit their wealth. They worked for it.
  • Harness the Power of Association. They constantly check their friendships circles and make use of mentors. Getting rid of bad friends and replacing them with good ones creates a better environment to improve yourself.

Success is not achieved overnight. Remember that following these habits will not automatically make you successful, but they put you in a better position. Consistency over a long period of time makes a big difference.

It’s Simply Wisdom For Life


If you have good common sense, at the age of 40 you should be able to understand how things in life work. Having gone through 20 years of adulthood decision making, coupled with an extra 10 years of making mistakes under adult supervision as a teenager. That would be 30 years of making personal decisions. This should be enough for a person to learn a few good things of life. One should be able to tell with a high degree of accuracy what works and what does not work.

At this age one should be able to know how to make personal decisions. To know what to do, what not to do and how to do it. To know how you function, and exploit that to get better result and be more productive. One should be in a position to give good advice to others on matters of life, giving warnings and guidance to others to be successful.

A 60 Year Old Fool!

However this is not necessarily true. Haven’t you ever met a 60 year old fool? One who has been conned 10 times by the same person and still want to do the same thing hoping to get a different result. Or a 67 year old man who impregnated a teenager next door. On further investigation you discover that it was not rape and there was not form of coercion. In this case you will wonder who was fooling who, the poor girl or the old man. Now, you do not just become a 60 year old fool. You grow into it with time, one day at a time.

As I travel I constantly meet younger people heading towards to wrong direction. As I engage with them I discover that many of them are adamant about their direction and have convinced themselves beyond doubt that they will get to the top through that road. ‘I know where that road takes you,’ I would say. ‘Taka, I am different. Watch me and see.’ While, few guys with common sense would take the road and have the courage to come back (having delayed themselves), but a lot never come back. That road will be their destruction and end, like many others.

Take Good Advice Immediately

There are a few who took advice on first response. These ones cut their time to succeed by learning from other people’s mistake through leveraging mentors, and advisors.

I always ask myself, ‘Why should I make a mistake that other 100 000 people have already made?’ I prefer to just learn from their mistakes.

Common Foolish Thoughts

Here are few examples of common unwise thoughts that can block you from receiving life changing advice;

  • ‘He is lying. He is just making up stories.’
  • ‘There is another secret to it he is not telling us. I know it.’
  • ‘He is more advantaged than me.’
  • ‘This is humanly impossible to do.’
  • ‘I tried it and it did not work.’
  • ‘If only you knew that my situation is beyond redemption.’
  • ‘I am not one of the chosen ones.’

Wise Mentality

And here are responses from those with a positive mentality;

  • ‘Yes. I will try it, but later.’ – These are the second responders. They get there but a bit late.
  • ‘Yes. I have been looking for this advice. I will do it now.’ – These people take advice and apply it. They would say, ‘Where have you been all this time? I have been looking for this kind of wisdom.’ Within a few months you will see them starting to reap. And over years they grow up to be outstanding achievers in their callings.

Finally, if you finally get the attention of a good mentor it does not mean that s/he had nothing to do. They could be doing things to enrich themselves but they chose to invest it in you. They have their lives. If you respond negatively to their advice it does not affect them. In short, it is you who want help from them not the other way round. They do this because they know there is someone out there who had no or little excess to life wisdom who can benefit.

You Are Being Sharpened

You Are Being Sharpened

In life we all go through tough times. The enemy plans them in order to destroy us, but God allows them in order to; 1) sharpen us and 2) develop us for his purpose.

God give us grace to go through these tough times. If we overcome, God promotes us to a high position. If we do not overcome we will remain weak and immature babies, unfit for greater responsibilities.

Now, God made you the way you are and placed you where you are for a purpose. It’s not a mistake that you are in a family struggling, no. It’s not a mistake that you are a man, you are black (or any race), you are shorter/taller etc. You were made perfect for the plan.

By now you are asking ‘what must I do?’ I will tell you. Listen to God! And obey him. Do what he tells you to do, only! That’s what Jesus did. That’s what Joseph did. In tough times it is imperative to hear God and be led by his Spirit.

If you had prevented Joseph’s brother from selling him, you were going to go against God’s plan. He was going to stay in his father house becoming a mushy-mushy boy, weak and useless; and was never going to be the leader of Egypt.

If you had prevented them from killing Jesus, then how were we going to be saved! That’s why at times you have to discern when it comes to helping people. You don’t want to find yourself violating God’s plan in a person just because you feel sorry for him/her. Discern in your spirit (especially if a person is not dying), and do what God tells you.

Your challenges have been ordained by God for you for a reason. He knows that you can overcome them. Talk to God he will tell you why and how. Listen to him. In dark times many people become desperate. Esau sold his birth right in desperation. Instead of enduring hunger for an hour (and prepare a meal) he lost everything for a meal!

When faced with serious challenges here are my two final words, 1) Do not be desperate and, 2) Listen to God for clear instructions.

You are being sharpened!

My Nine Investments

My Nine Investments

Although finance is an important part of everyone’s life, but there is so much more to a rich, fulfilling Christian life than just success and wealth. I believe that our relationship with money reveals the truth about our walk with the Lord.

I do not claim that the following is a complete or exhaustive list, but I believe there are nine investments that believers who are rich in Christ can participate in. This list is based on my walk with God, personal observation of other Christians, and what the God’s Word says.

Here are the nine investments:

  • Investment #1 – Invest in my relationship with God.
  • Investment #2 – Invest in my family; that is my wife and children.
  • Investment #3 – Invest in personal development; sharpen abilities skills and talents.
  • Investment #4 – Invest in my purpose and calling; keep the main thing the main thing.
  • Investment #5 – Invest in personal financial education. If you are interested in getting wealth, then getting wealth education first makes sense.
  • Investment #6 – Invest in genuine connections; relationships that are fruitful and fulfilling. Having the right people and the people you enjoy around you.
  • Investment #7 – Invest in giving back or generosity; to God’s kingdom and the community using finance and my gifts.
  • Investment #8 – Invest in leaving a legacy; simple actions that produce results that goes beyond generations.
  • Investment #9 – Invest in fun; enjoy everyday life. Enjoy the journey. Enjoy the moment. Enjoy the process.

Have a great day.

What are your top investments?

The Miserable Prison of a Judgemental Attitude


Google defines offense as; annoyance or resentment brought about by a perceived insult to or disregard for oneself. It also means resentment or an insult. In many cases, an offended person may not be aware that s/he is offended.

Offense is caused by hurt. Mostly when our level of expectation is not met, and we get disappointed. In Luke 17:1 Jesus said to his disciples, ‘It is impossible but that offences will come: but woe unto him, through whom they come!’

On the other hand people holding an offense can easily be offended by someone doing good. Do you get offended when someone say ‘I just bought a Mercedes Benz ’ or when you see a friend with a very happy family (when yours is not doing well at the moment). Instead reply and say ‘I am happy I know where to ask for advice when I am buying my house.’ When it seems others are advancing ahead of you, this is not the time to get offended, but to get connected with them in humility in order to learn how they are doing it. If your methods are not working dump them, and change for better. It is better to be humble and succeed than to feed your pride into failure.

Being Judgmental

The Google definition is; having or displaying an overly critical point of view, that is, critical, condemnatory, negative or disapproving. Offended people tend to be judgemental.

We are quick to judge the sinners. In life we are quick to judge. We do not wait to get the full story. In most instances the people we judge are just troubled souls, seeking salvation, love and grace. You do not know how they grew up and what they have been through. If we were to put you in their shoes you won’t like it, even for a day. Some have been let down, cheated, abused and hurt by the seeming good guys. Our role is not to bring the final sentence on them but to help them get better. To facilitate their next step by our few acts of grace and mercy. To help then unwind themselves from the effects of their past. To show them that they can make it!

In Church 

What would you do if your troubled family member gets saved in a church you do not like and becomes a dedicated member of that church? Tough indeed, isn’t it? We are quick to judge other churches and their leaders without considering how many people’s lives that have been changed for good in that church. We were brought in a tradition that our church is good, and the others are bad. Today I want to challenge you to see other churches differently, as good as your church, by first considering the struggling people who have been transformed.

You might be saying, ‘but people who go to that church keep sinning and even their leaders.’ Well, are all the people in your church holy and do not sin. Are your leaders perfect? Are you sinless? Show me a perfect church. We all need the grace of God.

‘For us Business is a Calling…’


(The result of our survey earlier in the year indicated that our subscribers are looking for help on how to do business with integrity. This article will give some advice on that.)

It is important to line up with God’s calling and purpose, which are always linked to your gifting.

Having the calling and gifting is not the end. You need to develop and nurture your gifts by training and development. Involve the right mentors, coaches and advisors in order to ensure sustainable growth.

Be sure if business is your calling. If it is not, you have two choices. Either stop and do other things you are called to, or you can continue until God clarifies your direction. In this way you will not get disappointed when you get less than expected results. Listen to God.

Doing business in a corrupt environment.

Wealth gotten by corrupt means will be maintained by corrupt mean.’ The foundation is critical in determining your path and your future. Choose your path with wisdom. Do not give bribes and do not take bribes. Make up your mind now that you will wait on God’s timing and receive his blessing. Rather wait for a door opened by God, than force it using human effort. Decide today how you will handle this.

There is no substitute for integrity. And the Bible repeatedly states that integrity will be rewarded.

Babies do not grow to maturity in two days

It takes time. Just like a baby, growing and building a business takes time, effort and sacrifice. Therefore you need that character of Christ reflected through the fruit of the Holy Spirit. Avoid get rich quick schemes at all cost. They are not businesses, but just scams.

It is said that 80% of businesses that are started do not last for a year. And another 20% fail in the second year. You need tenacity to make it. It can take up to five years to lay a good foundation of a business and another five years to mature it. Patience is needed and is the fruit of the Spirit.

Do you know Warren Buffet? He made 99% of his money when he was over 50yrs old! Yes. He spent most of his life building a pipeline. At 50 he was worth $600m. This has since grown to over $63.3 billion.

If you walk alone you walk fast, perhaps into your destruction. But if you walk with God, you walk into eternity. You work remain for ever. This is the kind of wealth that you can pass to the next generation.

Do not be short sighted. Consider the bigger picture. Put God first.

Have a great day!

Its Your Friends Its Your Choice Its Your Destiny

Its Your Friends Its Your Choice Its Your Destiny

It is true that you are as good as your friends. So, choose your friends wisely, especially those you spend more time with or talk with much. Even at work. People do not just become friends. You have to be aligned in direction. Your thinking must also line up. It is better to be alone than to be in the company of negative people. You may be saying what about loneliness. To be lonely is not the same thing as being alone. Loneliness is about feelings and mental status. You can have lots of people around you and still feel lonely, and the opposite is true.

As you advance in life, advance with you friends. If you do not, they will go up without you. Please note that if you are behaving foolishly, your buddies may not be. And one day you will be saying, ‘We used to play together with that Chief Executive Officer.’

When you are in school you all wear the same uniform and look cute. When you are young in your family, you cannot imagine your brother in jail or your sister in prostitution, and worse yourself in that situation, but as we grow our paths tends to change.

When your friends go upwards, that is, get promoted or goes to varsity and you are left, what happens? For example, Kelvin quickly finds new friends who also did not manage to get promoted so as to sooth himself. Soon Samuel at the new level finds new friends at that level and drop Kelvin out completely. What has just happened? Kelvin yielded to the pressure of a set back and adjusted himself to a lower standard. Instead Kelvin could have involved Samuel to make wiser decisions (or ask for advice) so that he can also upgrade his life as well.

Stop blaming you parents, stop blaming the government, stop blaming anybody! You are not a baby. If you think that your parents made wrong moves, what you yourself have you done to make things better. If you are over 18 years old you are now responsible for your life and cannot blame anyone for your life. Do yourself a favour. Make things right now.

“Make wise decisions today in order to secure your future tomorrow!” Every day you make thousands of choices. Each choice you make today is not just for you, it is for your children and your children’s children. You will be remembered by results of these choices! The friendships you make today are not just for you, they affect your children and your children’s children. As you navigate life, choose wisely each time.

Have a great day!

World War III Live


World War III is going on right now! Yes, this time it is a cyberwar.

Now, before I give practical advice on how to protect yourself and your loved ones from these attacks, visit this site IPviking.com.

This is not a site for the faint hearted because on it you will see live cyber-attacks in real time. You can watch cyber-attacks zip around the world from attackers to targets. The top sources of attacks are China, USA and Russia.

Cyber security company Norse operates IPviking.com. The website shows just how important you online security is and make it clear that one should be vigilant whilst online.

Who are these people attacking and why are they attacking? Money is one of the reasons. Yes, they want to get into your pocket or you bank account. On their way to your pocket they will drown you spam, suck life out of you with immoral content and vex you with scams. By that time your reputation will be gone out the window and could cause serious damages to you professional image.

Marketing Junk Emails

These are request to subscribe, unsolicited mail, advertising material and promotional material. Firstly try to not to subscribe what you do not fully understand and also take note that some subscription conditions includes giving consent to send your contact details to third parties who you do not know. Unsubscribe unwanted subscriptions and if possible report spam emails.

Scam Emails 

  • Mostly Nigeria, for example, someone died and there is unclaimed inheritance left. You are asked to help transfer the money or they say you have been identified as a beneficiary. You are requested to send a small amount of money to unlock these riches. Why did this rich person choose you to give money? Why are you the lucky one? My advice here is simple, do not respond. Instead report as junk mail.
  • At times they inform you that your bank or Paypal account has been blocked and they put a link to unblock your account. In this way they steal your login details to your bank account. Never access you online account via a link on an email. The best way of checking whether your account is blocked is to visit the bank or call you bank using the official numbers.
  • At times they can propose to you an investment opportunity with unbelievable returns. Do not be a fool who give money to a person he has never seen or to invest in something he has never seen. If you see such an opportunity, do not be desperate. Seek advice.
  • At time they send you a job or study offer oversea. They ask you to pay for administration fees as they wait for you to arrive. At time they ask you to bring certain amount of cash to start working or studying. In this case they rob you upon arrival.

Relationship Requests and Elicit Offers

They target men for obvious reasons. In this category you may receive email from a lady who admires you and want to know you more and she ask you to contact her. At times there is a link to a site with information that will help you please your lady or to a site that has ‘unbelievable’ fun. Do not be a fool who fall for a picture online.

Social Media 

  • Relationship requests. On Facebook spam is often received in form of relationship request and friendship requests from a strange lady. If you check you will find that the person joined Facebook less than one month. What are the chances of someone with a funny name like Mary Jennifer to join Facebook and within a month wants to become your friend? On the profile picture she is half dressed. The best way is to block and report the profile.
  • Unauthorised posting on your behalf by apps. Watch out the apps and game you authorise to access you details. Most of them request permission to post on your behalf. Be aware of links with unbelievable headlines. If you click they will automatically post to your friends.
  • Friending a spammer. Unfriend spammers or persons who post content with profanity in your groups. Report the videos or picture to the administrator or to Facebook. By not reporting this it makes you associated with the content in the group or page.

Career Limiting Behaviour 

Many people have career limiting social media behaviour. In today’s world potential employers check you social media presence before accepting you. Here are a few things to consider;

  • Do not allow apps to post on social media for you. You will not have control on what they post.
  • Whatever goes online lives a trail that cannot be entirely erased. You cannot delete completely. Somewhere it is stored. Someone will find it one day.
  • Watch your online comments or likes. You will be judged by your words.
  • Watch your friends. You will be judged by the company you keep.

Have a great day.

How Do You Know That You Are An Introvert? – Part 2

How Do You Know That You Are An Introvert? - Part 2

(Continued from ‘How Do You Know That You Are An Introvert? – Part 1’)

“I want to be alone… with someone else who wants to be alone.” – Dimitri Zaik.

Introverts are easily misunderstood, hence they become more vulnerable than their extrovert counterparts. As children people do not understand why you are quiet and less outgoing ‘unlike your brother/sister.’ You are made to compete with your siblings on an ‘unfair ground.’ With time you got hurt by words and comments. This has made you to be even more discreet. Eventually they just leave you out, ‘who has time to wait for someone to speak.’

You have to move from your position of frustration. Stop trying to be someone you are not. Accept yourself because you are different.  Instead discover what is within you that you are good at.

If you are still wondering, here is how you can still know that you are an introvert;

You need a good reason to Interact

Introverts are not necessarily afraid of people. What they need is a reason to interact. They don’t interact for the sake of interacting. If you want to talk to an introvert, just start talking.

You wish everyone can be real ‘for once’

Introverts often don’t see a reason for beating around the bush with social pleasantries. They want everyone to just be real and honest. Unfortunately, this is not acceptable in most settings, so introverts can feel a lot of pressure to fit in, which they find exhausting.

You have few intimate friends

On the contrary, introverts intensively value the few authentic friends they have. They can count their friends on one hand. And there may not be even a group, maybe just two or three, and you love sharing all the secrets with them. Maybe you won’t speak much in front of the others, but boy you are a non-stop blubberer in front of them.

You are a loyal friend

Introverts tend to be very loyal and honest people. Their energy comes from themselves, and not from others, hence it’s easy to be honest and up front with your friends.

You don’t like to go out in public for long

Introverts just don’t like to in public for long. They also like to avoid the complications that are involved in public activities. They take in data and experience very quickly, and as a result, don’t need to be there for long to “get it.” They are ready to go home, recharge, and process it all. In fact, it’s the recharging afterwards that is absolutely crucial for introverts.

You think a lot

You are always active on the thinking part. Introverts are perfectly comfortable with their own thoughts. You are a good thinker. You think a lot. All the information you receive is processed and packaged properly. You daydream. You crave an authentic and sincere connection with one person at a time. You have a constantly running inner monologue. “Extroverts don’t have the same internal talking as we do,” says Olsen Laney. “Most introverts need to think first and talk later.”

You don’t follow the crowd

Introverts don’t follow crowd. You would prefer to be valued for your novel ways of living. You think for yourselves and because of that, you often challenge the norm. You don’t make most of your decisions based on what is popular or trendy.

You plan ahead

You think about what you are going to say or do, many times before going forward. It’s a given, you can’t accept yourself talking without thinking, though it is more of a quality of intelligent people rather than introverts. But most of the introverts, like to analyse what they are going to say and on what grounds. While extroverts may like to fly by the seat of their pants, that’s not usually what introverts are like. You probably plan things out so that everything runs smoothly and with no issues. This can be anything from a holiday trip to running errands, but having a plan is the key.

You are a writer.

Introverts are often better at communicating in writing than in person, and many are drawn to the solitary, creative profession of writing. Most introverts like “Harry Potter” author J.K. Rowling, say that they feel most creatively charged when they have time to be alone with their thoughts. Many introverts are writers of some kind. They often pursue careers in writing, or prefer to spend their free time writing for fun. Writing is a way for you to really connect to yourself, so it’s a way to recharge.

Most of the times you like to keep your opinions and emotions to yourself.

Being an introvert, you are low on your capacity of social interaction. There is no energy for mandatory social interaction in you. You derive your energy from resources within, without the help of anybody’s company. You keep all your opinions to yourselves, your hard thought, derived conclusions aren’t put forward to other people because most of the people aren’t ready to hear your thoughts and that will create a debate. They will not accept your views, and explaining everything to them will drain all of your energy. Thus you keep them to yourselves unless asked for it, the same with your opinions, thoughts and emotions about things or people.

You are the last to raise your hand when someone asks for something from a group.

As you might remember from your elementary school days, there were some fellow students whose hands shot straight up into the air when the teacher asked a question or needed someone to volunteer. Extroverts tend to be ready and eager to stand out in any academic or social interaction. You are probably more of an introvert than an extrovert if you are content to sit back and let others take center stage. It’s not that introverts know less than others; they just don’t feel a particular need to be in that limelight.

You often wear headphones when you are in a public situation.

Whether it’s making your way through a crowded bus or just navigating a crowded street, if you are an introvert you most likely don’t seek a great deal of contact with others. In decades past, if you wanted to avoid interacting with strangers, you would keep your head down and look straight in front of you. Now you have the added protection of being able to hide behind the protection of your headphones.

Your best thinking occurs when you are by yourself.

You are not opposed to group meetings or discussions, but if you want to come up with a creative solution, you need some time to work the problem out on your own. Having the opportunity to reflect quietly on a problem allows you to make the maximum use of your ability to engage in original thought, and to produce meaningful results.

You listen more than you talk.

Perhaps this is the most intriguing feature of an introvert.

You know what you like

Introverts often know exactly what they want, when they want and how they it. You have thought and processed it, you know. It’s a definite advantage to the trait. While you are certainly not afraid to try new things, you are never holding anyone up with your indecision. You made up your mind about many thing long time ago.

You don’t like interviews

Job interviews aren’t exactly an introvert’s favourite thing. However, introverts can be great at them. Going in, you might be nervous, but once you get to know your interviewer a little better, you are able to really hit it off.

You don’t trust easily

For introverts, it can be difficult finding friends who respect your introverted nature. So when you do start becoming chummy with someone, you might take a little longer than an extrovert when it comes to trusting that person. Often, this means you won’t get hurt as often as an extrovert, and your friends are people you can really count on.

Famous introverts

Here is a list of some of the world’s famous introverts; Barack Obama, Warren Buffett, Hillary Clinton, Mark Zuckerberg, Guy Kawasaki, Bill Gates, Abraham Lincoln, Eleanor Roosevelt, Albert Einstein, Mahatma Gandhi and many more. Few Bible introverted characters include Moses, Abraham and Sarah, Joseph, Gideon, Mary and Timothy. So you cannot blame it on your introversion. There are many advantages of being an introvert.

Have a great day!
