HOW THE MIGHTY FALL [LEARNING FROM THEIR MISTAKES

Great companies like men and even nations – no matter who it is, where you stand, and what resources you control……..or in any such circumstances tending towards attainment, we are all susceptible to stumble, decline or fall. It is evident that we fall and this is largely self-inflicted however the amazing thing is the fact that irrespective of the circumstances, history or even staggering defeat, loss of sales…..the path to recovery lies within us. One of the key to sustained performance lies in understanding how greatness can be lost. Better to learn from how others fell than to repeat their mistakes out of ignorance. The framework below sounds about right, in fact, it sounds like Proverbs 16: 18 ~ “Pride goeth before destruction”

TURN ON THE #TAP – [TAKE A POSITION]

It is pertinent we turn on the #TAP – this phrase: Take A Position [T.A.P.] is the theme for the month of May 2015 and would help us navigate this season on our path to #BAR – Breaking All RECORDS

LITERALLY:
A tap also known as a faucet is a device used to regulate the flow of either liquid or gas from a container or chamber. In the same vain we are like that device – with capacity to FLOW endlessly in tandem with our reservoir.The challenge however is that we usually do not have adequate reserve from which to tap…..

IDIOMATICALLY
Cardinal however to this treatise is the need to be decisive as the idiom posits: TAKE A POSITION i.e. decide and take action on any contending or unbearable matter. This could be with regards to our finances, career, status, engagements etc….. WE must make a CHOICE but it must be hinged on Information and additional resources about our plans in alignment with our envisioned destination. This is critical to attaining our desired expectations.

HOW TO TURN ON THE TAP? HOW DOES ONE #TAP- TAKE A POSITION?

·         T – THINK – Beware of what you think - You soon become what you constantly think about.  If you think lack you soon become slack, if you fail to think you soon starting sinking or stinking, thinking is not synonymous with worrying - It is pertinent you have the right kind of thoughts. Your thoughts are largely tied to what we internalize [IN FLOW i.e. INFORMATION] – what are you feeding your mind with? Who are you listening to? Who are you associating with? What are you imagining?

·         A– ATTITUDE/APPROACH – according to one of my Masters – David Oyedepo – your attitude determines your altitude. This further refreshes my thoughts on the writings of Brian Tracy:”In flying [i.e. arriving at your destination] the word “attitude” refers to the angle of flight or your approach relative to the horizon. The way you think about a problem determines your attitude or approach as well”

·         P – PRACTICE TO PREPARE – Yes!!! Imagine a student that intends to take an examination he must first practice to prepare else failure is imminent. This is further corroborated by Aristotle: We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit.

ACTION IT
You now have either invested or wasted 120days pursing your vision – it is salient therefore to appraise the journey so far and #TAP - TAKE A POSITION but beyond the decision is to ACTION IT: Act On It…. Move intently and purposefully towards your dreams and not the dreams/intentions of other about you.

Sacrosanct to this analogy of a tap is knowing when to increase or decrease the flow i.e. regulate our thoughts, attitude and intensity of practice

Water doesn't flow until the faucet is turned on.
Take that step - ‪#‎STARTNOW Nothing Happens until You Start.

#TAP – TAKE A POSITION – put on your thinking cap; change your attitude and practice to prepare.

BREAKING ALL RECORDS!!! [B.A.R.] - #MANIFEST #APRIL2015  

In 1899 Charles Duell - Commissioner of the US. Patents Office, in his resignation letter said; "We have reached the end. Everything that can be invented has been invented..."
 
Imagine if we all had listened to this Commissioner – the world would never have witnessed the innovations and advancement we have recorded world over.
 
 
My memory lingers to three (3) significant events in the past and one (1) a couple of hours ago on the will of men in the thick of giving up. Their unyielding hope, resilience and sheer will to fail forward.
 
 
One.
The Blind Man – Bartimaeus – Who upon sensing Master bellowed and shouted for his healing – initially he was shouted down by naysayers and pundits - soon the Master beckoned on him and alas - everyone now encouraged me to move smartly - He subsequently received his sight
 
Two.
Thomas Edison’s teachers said he was "too stupid to learn anything." He was fired from his first two jobs for being "non-productive." As an inventor, Edison made 1,000 unsuccessful attempts at inventing the light bulb. When a reporter asked, "How did it feel to fail 1,000 times?" Edison replied, "I didn’t fail 1,000 times. The light bulb was an invention with 1,000 steps."
 
Three.
Walt Disney was fired by a newspaper editor because "he lacked imagination and had no good ideas." He went bankrupt several times before he built Disneyland. In fact, the proposed park was rejected by the city of Anaheim on the grounds that it would only attract riffraff.
 
Four.
GMB – General Muhammad Buhari [The Peoples’ General] - Against all odds – contested for the position of President of the most populous country in Africa 3 times was unsuccessful yet at 72 – he launched out the 4th Time – clinching the votes of a majority of Nigeria – to be sworn in on the 29th of May 2015as the President of The Federal Republic of Nigeria
 
Four Lessons:
 
- Find Your Own Voice - YOUR Path - Your dream/desires /delusions
 
- Focus Intently - shun all distractions and detractors and even discouragement
 
- Pursue Persistently, Passionately and Patiently unless you reach your mark.
 
- Once you are unperturbed – nature, men and all the elements will come to your rescue to support you to the end.
 
Rejuvenate your life – What are you waiting for? Men who altered their generations are those who raced against time, who refused to be silenced.
 
It is time to! #BAR (Break All Records) - #Manifest.
 
Happy New Month – APRIL is the epoch of record breaking feats – surpass all know limitations – #Manifest
