Every moment I get to share my thoughts stays cherished because of my unflinching and committed service to humanity.

At the Defining a Decade for Adolescents, DAD4Adolescents, I spoke to hundreds of young minds as we inspired a mindshift in these adolescents on Thursday, 17th November 2022.

I shared my childhood story of how, a bright young lad from a poor background with limitations of going through school and enjoying the basic needs of man, had the first miracle of being enrolled to sit for SSCE and Poly Jamb by strangers, and also how I woke up to the reality of life after reading a book, Rich Dad, Poor Dad by Robert Kiyosaki,

After reading the book, I proceeded to sell off my liabilities at that time to afford an asset (Pentium 3 computer) which became a defining point for my next decades.

A few excerpts of my session:

– To succeed in life, You need to examine and exercise your creative imagination.

– The strongest weapon you have is the exposure of your brain to knowledge.

– The books should be your best of friends, the most important teacher. The more you grow in knowledge, the more you travel to places with your mind.

– There is no substitute for personal development books. It allows mastering the best of what other people have figured out.

– Everything needed for a better successful future is already written and it’s in your duty as a king to search it out.

– The difference between you now and the person you will be in the next 10 years is determined by what you read, what you do with what you read and a deliberate network of valuable people.

– Self-education is the true education that gives your life a meaning.

– Reading 15 minutes per day is to utilize 1% of your day that will yield dividends for you to become part of the top 1% in your industry in the next 10 years.

– Self Education is a highway to bring our imaginations to reality: anything you do not know, you can always learn.

We have planted the seeds of greatness in these young ones and we’re optimistic that the next ten years of their lives will be the best ten years they’ve ever had.
