    Finding Meaning in Life - Key to Happiness and Abundance

    Finding Meaning in Life - Key to Happiness and Abundance

    Welcome to Designed for Success Podcast

    This episode focuses on finding meaning in life, key to happiness and abundance.

    The essence of life goes beyond money, career, achieving certain goals, etc I have seen many people achieve their set goals and still remain unhappy, unfulfilled and unsatisfied.

    For instance, when someone sets a goal to become the CEO of an organization, they do everything possible to achieve the goal, but upon attaining this goal, such a person discovers there is nothing therein to give him or her that feeling of satisfaction.

    The feeling of satisfaction, fulfillment and completeness comes when you find meaning in life. 

    Meaning in life is derived from your God-given purpose. In other words, there is a higher mandate or assignment for your life beyond just achieve personal goals.

    Setting and achieving a money goal is not enough to make you happy in life. Little wonder why some people lost  important relationships, families, health, etc in the pursuit of money and other personal goals.

    Meanwhile, money is just a means and not the end! This is why money does not bring happiness.

    What brings happiness and abundance is finding meaning in life. This will usually come from your passion, strenght, desire, ability, gift, talent, weakness, pain, challences, difficulty, desire for contribution or impact, etc

    I shared some valuable insights that will hopefully transfom your life. Make sure you listen to it over and over again to get the lesson. Remember to share it with your loved ones too.

    How Leadership works - Principles of Value-Based-Leadership

    How Leadership works - Principles of Value-Based-Leadership

    Welcome to Designed for Success Podcast

    In this episode, I shared my thoughts on the principle of value-based-leadership.

    Leadership goes beyond positional ranking. It is misleading to define leadership from the context of position. I think, this is where most of us are getting it wrong.

    Leadership is all about caring, loving and adding value to others. Leadership is about making the world a better place, empowering people to live the life they desire and making meaningful contribution to the world.

    John Maxwell says it all, 'everything rises and falls on leadership'

    In side this episode you will learn foundamental principles that makes you a value-based-leader.

    How to take 100% Responsibility for your life - Effective Strategy

    How to take 100% Responsibility for your life - Effective Strategy

    Welcome to Designed for Success Podacast.

    Today's episode is titled 'How to take 100% Responsibility for your Life - Effective Strategy'
    It is common these days to find people blame others for their life outcome or result.

    My intention is to move you from been a passanger to taking control of the driver seat of your destiny.

    I delibrately said 100% responsibility, because that is exactly what it is. Life will not give you what you want, rather it will give you what you deserve.

    Someone once said, it is insanity to consistenly do the same thing and expect a different result. 

    The bible says, as a man thinks in his heart, so he is.

    If you want to really shape your destiny, such that you manifest the results that you desire in every facet of your life, then you must be intentional about taking 100% responsibility for your life.

    It means, you are responsible for your success or failure in life. You can change and direct the course of your destiny to whatever you desire.

    I shared 6 effective strategies which I believe will help you birth the destiny that you desire.

    Words of Encouragement to Somenone Going Through Challenging Times

    Welcome to Designed for Success Podcast.

    The world is currently going through some challenges ranging from inflation, political instability, inscurity, bad governance, etc.

    Those are directly or indirectly impacting negatively on people's lives the world over. I see families parting ways, job losses, war,  hopelessness, etc

    This episode of designed for success podcast is meant to encourage someone going through challenging or difficult times, in the words of Jim Rohn, he said, don't pray for the situation to get better, strive to get better yourself. In other words, your response during this critical period will determine your outcome.

    I just want to encourage you through this podcast by saying tough times don't last, but tough people do.

    Maintain a positive stance, learn and develop your winning character.

    I shared insightful lessons to help you transition this phase to birth a better and stronger version of you.

    Once again, be encouraged.

    How to Persevere in the Midst of Crisis

    How to Persevere in the Midst of Crisis

    Welcome to Designed for Success Podcast

    I have always perceived crisis as a means to a better level, although it comes with some difficulties, pains and discomfort, perhaps this explains why a lot of people give up easily.

    In this episode, I shared my thoughts on how to persevere in the midst of crisis. This crisis could come in any form, but the purpose as you will learn in this episode is to empower us for the next level of life that is ahead.

    I am yet to see a successful person who didn't overcome any form of crisis.

    Gold is refined by fierce fire before it becomes useful, same principle applies when we go through crisis. We come out better, stronger and ready for the journey ahead.

    You will also learn 6 key principles of surmounting any crisis situation.

    Jim Rohn once said, "don't pray for the crisis to go away, pray to get better"

    - you need deep insight to understand that phrase
