WEEKLY NUGGETS

Good morning, my fellow constituents of humanity and welcome to another brand new week. I believe we had great and favorable moments, signifying that the week was indeed memorable after all.


This week will be superb, this week will be desirable and delightful for all of us, this is my earnest prayer and wish for all of us. I believe strongly that if we apply the simple principles of natural laws, the tide will be in your favour.


What are these simple principles? you might ask. Yes they are simple and readily doable. Care, kindness>>>LOVE.


How much do you care about those you are better off than? When last did you perform an act of kindness to those who may not afford to pay back? These are some vital and integral ingredients needed in the pudding of success.


Do you think you will be where you are today if someone has not performed an act of love in your life’s path? You think your success story is just because of your expertise and wisdom? Not at all, an act of love in one way or the other perfected it. Fact.


The Holy Book (Bible) admonished us to do unto others, that, which we desire to be done to us. And that simplifies the act of love.


Brethren, giving is a catalyst that attracts favour, success and total wellness. The roads to our successes lie in our abilities and capacities in appreciating mankind and helping others to grow. Imagine a world where we all decide to be one another’s keeper, where we all genuinely care about one another. Think about that.


As we step out to embrace the activities we have lined up for the week, may we consider these pieces above and put them into good practice, then watch as success becomes a servant to us.


May the good Lord protect and guide us all, while blessing our hustles as we embrace these lines.
Happy New Week.

WEEKLY NUGGETS

Good morning, my fellow constituents of humanity and welcome to another brand new week, the 2nd week in the month of November 2021. Hope we all had a great and memorable weekend and are prepared to relish the goodies of the new week.


As we set out for the for the hustles and other necessities of the week, hoping to have favourable opportunities and breakthroughs, there is a great need to brace up and prepare for the developments (good or bad) of the season and time. One of such is security.


It is no longer news that the security situation has deteriorated  drastically and keeps worsening as the days go by, and that is one of the social concerns that should be given premium attention by everyone, especially, these ember months that have notoriety for “need for speed”. Everyone trying to meet up with enough for “Christmas show”.


Online and internet fraud is on the rise, applications and new sophisticated dimensions are being applied in the course of defrauding people of their hard-earned money, take heed, lest you fall victim to these heartless criminals.

Be careful with your financial transactions.


While at the ATM or POS points, be mindful of your PIN numbers, to shield it from public eye.


Do not respond to any call or message requesting for your financial details like, like PIN, BVN.


Do not expose your financial details to untrusted internet sites.


Do not store your account PIN on your phone, your phone might get into wrong hands.


If you are one of those who indulge in defrauding others of their hard-earned resources, I urge you to desist from such and turn a new leaf.


There is a bright future for everyone, all you need is to embrace your profession, career and businesses with the due diligence and maximum commitment.


We must try to do today, things we will be proud of tomorrow. Shun vices.

Wishing you a fruitful week ahead.

Good morning, my fellow constituents of humanity. Welcome to another brand new week and I hope all of us are very ready to make the best out of it as we keep to the tabs that I have been sharing with us on this platform.


It will be nice if we can assess our performance so far as we are already in the last quarter of the year. Making a self appraisal of your efforts so far, are you happy with what you achieved? Can you beat yourself and say you did well? On a scale of 1-100, what did you score? Are you on surplus or deficit?


Now take a deep breath, reflect on the result of the assessment, highlight and point out where you performed below par. After your evaluation, note down the factors that hitched you from achieving your desired goals. Write them down on a piece of paper or any storage material. This will form a part of your handbook for next year.
Now set new achievable goals, write them down beside the place you wrote the factors that hitched you.


Congratulations, you are already set for next year. This is how to plan early, I bet you, excellence will become a part of you as you adhere to these instructions. Next week, we will set our tasks and yardsticks, next year must dance to our tunes.


Have a great week,and always remember to show kindness in all you do.
