You may have heard it said that ideas are a dime a dozen, but people that make their ideas happen are worth their weight in gold.

So I took action and I am pleased to say that I launched my first webinar earlier this month. If you missed it, you can register for the second session this Friday 26th February 2016.

Some of you may have been doing webinars for a long time, and this is no big deal, but for the rest of you who have plans to do webinars and have not acted on that plan, I will share with you seven things that contributed to the successful launch of my first webinar.

5 Things That Can Stop You Achieving Your Goals

We all try to recognise the importance of setting goals throughout our lives to get things done; but among those of us who actually set goals, only a minority are actually able to achieve them.

This is strange, considering the fact that many people actually set up small and achievable personal goals.

While working on goals is a conscious decision, you may not realise the things you are doing unconsciously that are preventing you from achieving your goals.

What’s keeping you from achieving your goals?

How To Speak Like A Pro – My Top 10 Public Speaking Tips

This week I will be hosting my friend and past UK and Ireland Public Speaking champion to a webinar where we will be talking about how to prepare for your next speech competition. Not everyone will be preparing for a speech competition but everyone can benefit from improving their public speaking skills.

So let me share with you my top 10 public speaking skills that can help you speak or present like a pro.

#1. Fear of Public Speaking

7 Public Speaking Tips From a Speech Contest Winner

This was one of the semi-final rounds of the 2011 World Champion of Public Speaking in Las Vegas Nevada and I sat mesmerised in the audience having heard 9 highly competent speakers try to win the hearts and minds of the audience and the judges.

The third place winner was called and it was our own Malachi Talabi, the UK and Ireland Public Speaking Champion.

Malachi and myself will be doing a free webinar titled ‘From Club Champion To District Champion – 21 World Class Speaking Tools To Help You Win Hearts, Win Minds and Win Trophies’.

I was a bit disappointed at the results as I was sure Malachi would come first. But there was a big smile on Malachi’s face and when I asked him why he was so elated, he said, “Wole, I have placed in the top thirty of the over twenty-five thousand contestants who started this race.”

Five years on and I am still fascinated by Malachi whenever I hear him speak. He has a way with words and he is a master at using humour to drive home his point.

The Next Step Is All You Need To Know To Start

There are times in your journey when you know for sure where you are heading, but sometimes, you have to set off on a hunch without much clarity as to the destination.

We left the running of the world’s financial markets to people we thought knew what they were doing. Now we know better. A lot of these guys were fumbling their way around, not having a clue of what was happening and hoping it all ends up well. It didn’t.

Step out in faith

There is a story about a man who left the comfort of his parent’s house and set off on a journey to a far country. Today over 4000 years after he took the first step, the journey of Abraham continues in the nation birthed from his trusting his instincts.

What is keeping you in the same place?

You must have heard it somewhere that you need a vision to start a business, you need to start with an end in mind or some picture of what the end looks like. That is very true. But at the same time the search for a vision could well be a part of the journey. All you need to know to begin your journey is the next step.

Here are three lessons from my journey so far:

1. Trust your instincts

You have to begin to train yourself to trust your gut feelings. This is that part of you that you cannot control and you sometimes do not understand. You can silence it or you can let it loose.

2. Take one step at a time

As the saying goes, “no one tests the depth of the water with both feet“. Keep your day job and test your business idea with some real products and customers. Don’t bet your house on your fantastic business idea. It just might not be what the customers want.

3. Be flexible and be prepared to change direction at any time.

Someone once said, “it is much easier to steer a moving vehicle than a stationary one”. I sometimes get told that I am too flexible and unstable. The reason is that I had no clarity as to how it will turn out when I started and so what looks like a change of mind is actually a reassessment of the goals in light of greater visibility and insight that comes with movement.

Be courageous and start

Remember that courage is not an absence of fear. So feel the fear and do it anyway.

The world needs leaders who are courageous enough to go forward despite not knowing what the future holds and are humble enough to admit it and change course when they are wrong. Don’t wait for all the lights to turn green, move on at the first green light.

Question:  Have you ever embarked on a journey without an end in sight?

5 Reasons Why You Need To Rediscover The Creative You

The process of creation starts with a thought – an idea, conception, visualisation. Everything you see was once someone’s idea. Nothing exists in your world that did not first start as pure thought ~ Neal Donald Walsch, American author of the series “Conversation with God”

I have always been fascinated by the phrase ‘creating something from nothing’. This may mean nothing to you but it does resonate with me.

I look at the world around me. All I see are the things that were not around a few years ago suddenly being the things that everyone is using or talking about. You know some of these things:

  1. The selfie stick
  2. The electric car
  3. The smart watch
  4. The hover-board
  5. The driverless car

Yet it’s easy to look at these gadgets and think of yourself as a non-creative person simply because you have not invented a world-changing device.
