“Save now, we beseech You, O Lord; send now prosperity, O Lord, we beseech You, and give to us success!” Psalm 118:25 Your life is a result of every decision you have made. If you don’t like the way your life is playing out, seek the Holy Spirit for change. Here is a truth I know you will appreciate. The reality of your world is in direct correlation to the information that has been processed in your life. Every day you are bombarded with millions of pieces of information, good, bad and indifferent. With that amount of information invading your life daily, you need the help of your prophetic angel. What the enemy would love more than anything else is for you to let that information just sit in your mind and do nothing. The spirit of procrastination has caused enough damage in your life over the years. Do not allow the enemy to trick you out of your “do it now,” cast away every spirit I’ll do it tomorrow” that always cause setback, which only results in in tears and regret. The Holy Spirit is showing me that you are a great listener, and you exercise great patience when making tough decisions. Your ability to hear what is being said and then read between the lines to get the true meaning is proof positive that your prophetic angel is at work. You have never been a follower, which is what has kept you out of trouble most of your life. Growing up it appeared as if you thought you were better than your peers. What they did not know was that you were being guided by your prophetic angel. It was your prophetic angel that cleared the way for you to walk through some difficult times.
Your prophetic angel is seeking the mind of God for you concerning your health, career and finances. Regardless of the negative events that have come your way, with the help of your prophetic angel, you are able to handle the distorted information. Declared with me; “My prophetic angel is at work.” I see by the Spirit that God is strengthening your connection to this prophetic ministry. The spirit that has been interrupting your sleep during the middle of the night is about to receive a visit from your prophetic angel. Your prophetic angel has been given a personal assignment to go into your future and bind every trick and lie the enemy has plotted against you and your family. God loves you so much that He is not willing to risk your future to a “chance” that you would get it right. Father wants to let you and the enemy know that He is God and there is none beside Him. The Father has released your prophetic angel into your future to build a safe haven where you can pray, think and relax. I hear the Spirit saying, “Think it not strange that you are having dreams about your future. I am taking away the pain and every distraction that tries to rob you of your upcoming season. Prosperity is opening up for you!” You are being rescued in this season by your prophetic angel… * Don’t allow anyone to talk you out of what God has for you. * Don’t allow the noise of negativity to back you into a corner. When you are walking in oneness with God it will cause those of like mind to recognize the virtue that is operating within you. You have been given power and strength over your adversaries. When the enemy says you have no future, remind him of your prophetic angel. Now, I need you to do this prophetic act. Write a letter to your future, detailing what your prophetic angel has shown you, and then mail it back to yourself. Write on the outside of the envelope, “Do not open until June 3rd, 2016.” I decree and declared, your prophetic angel will see you through in all your endeavour in Jesus mighty name…Amen “He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.”


“And David inquired of the Lord, saying, Shall I pursue this troop? Shall I overtake them? The Lord answered him, Pursue, for you shall surely overtake them and without fail recover all”. 1 Samuel 30:8 Before you started reading today, let me tell you what thus saith the Lord! I hear God saying, “RESTORATION! RESTORATION! RESTORATION! All that was lost in the past is being restored to you and your family.” The Holy Spirit is also showing me that there is one family member in particular whose heart God is working on softening. The Father wants you to know that the nights you spent pacing the floor, offering up praises to God was not in vain. Your ability to see the good in everyone would not allow you to give up. You believed God and knew that through prayer and fasting God would turn it around. I hear God saying, “Focus is key as you move forward.” Many of naysayers that would love to see you break your connection with this prophetic ministry. In fact, they have spent many hours trying to talk you out of the place where you really met the Lord for the first time. What they do not know is that this is the Lord’s doing and it started before the foundation of the earth! * The Holy Spirit knew that you would run into situations where you would need guidance and direction. * The Holy Spirit knew that the prophetic word was going to save your life.
* The Holy Spirit knew that the enemy would fight you every day and fight you hard to stop the fullness of God from maturing in your life. The Holy Spirit is showing me a river that is flowing, filled with all types of fish, big and small. The small fish represent the small beginnings in your life. You have proved to God that your heart is pure and sincere, because you didn’t give up in the difficult times. Even when it appeared dark, you were immovable and continued to follow God’s plan for your life. The big fish represent your reward for staying the course and never seeing yourself as small. You appreciated the small beginnings. I want to remind you that you are built for this race. Keep your eyes glued on the Father. In order for you to see what God is really doing in this season, it is going to take sight beyond sight. The Holy Spirit wants me to share with you that a miracle is brewing for you. Keeping your thoughts moving in the right direction will help bring the desires of your heart into manifestation. THIS IS THE SEASON TO MAKE BOLD CONFESSIONS… * I am healed! * I am prosperous! * I am victorious! * I am fearfully and wonderfully made! * I am above ONLY! Never get tired of affirming yourself in the Holy Spirit. I hear the Spirit of the Lord saying, “You are about to walk in a level of revelation that is going to amaze you. Healing and promotions are on the horizon for you. Your tears of sadness are turning to tears of joy. Make your requests known to Him and He will make the crooked paths straight,” says the Spirit of the Living God. A solid foundation can withstand… * The weight that is put on your shoulders. * The ups and downs of life. * The disbelief of your naysayers. Never allow yourself to be backed into a corner. Declare with me right now, “MY FOUNDATION IS SOLID!” Whenever the enemy shows up and beckons you to be quiet, it is an indication that you are about to move in the strength of the Holy Spirit, not your own. Being silent for the enemy is not an option, neither is it a part God’s plan. YOUR SOLID FOUNDATION CAN WITHSTAND THE PRESSURE. “He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.”

Let them shout for joy, and be glad, that favour my righteous cause: yea, let them say continually, Let the Lord be magnified, which hath pleasure in the prosperity of his servant.” Psalm 35:27 Fasten your seatbelt and get ready for liftoff. The journey you are about to take is going to leapfrog you into your prophetic future. At some point along your journey, you will start seeing things from a completely different perspective. There are people, places and things you have to get to and playing the role of indecisiveness will not work. There are people waiting for you to come into your true self. The Holy Spirit is calling you to a higher place where you will be able to see what is coming your way. I saw you in the Spirit with a jetpack on your back. Every time the enemy came near you, you lifted yourself a little higher over the distractions. The more you ascended, the happier you appeared. You opened your mouth and started singing praises to God. The Word of the Lord came from heaven saying, “Your current environment has tried to break you, but your seed is standing in the gap to protect you.” You will never find yourself in a position where you cannot escape. Life will come at you hard and fast sometimes, but fear not! You have been elevated. You have been seeking the mind of God concerning your future. I hear the Spirit of the Lord saying, “You are standing at the brink of a new season. Your circle of influence is changing. You will be surrounded by thinkers and winners. No more boundaries as you are elevated into the presence of God. You are taking off and expanding. Start thinking outside of the box and DREAM BIG. Keep your seatbelt fastened, because you are about to go from 0 to 60 at warp speed.” What God has planned for you in the next season of your life will astound you. When I tell you that you are at the right place at the right time, it is no joke. What the Spirit is uttering in your direction is a game changer! It is time for you to release the greatness within you that you have been holding. It is time to go forth and begin to move in the prophetic word that God has given to you. When it is your time, nothing or no one can stop you. No one but YOU can detour you from your purpose. God seeks to reveal Himself through you. I want to remind you that it is time for you to rise up and be about your Father’s business. Remember, whatever has been delayed in your life never stopped moving. You may have thought your prophetic word should have come to pass by now. But check your clock, because time has never stopped moving. Repeat after me, “TIME IS ON MY SIDE… YES, IT IS!”
Many people have died holding onto their dreams, goals and aspirations. But I hear the Spirit saying that will not be your portion, because you are dealing with the One who has everything under control.
Check your clock… time waits for no one… * The clock is ticking. * Be intentional with your efforts. * Get into the game Prophetic timing is God’s timing. Whatever you do in this season, DO NOT miss your prophetic destiny that the Holy Spirit has revealed to you. Don’t miss what God is doing in your life. The race is not given to the swift, but it is given to those who endure to the very end. YOU SHALL ENDURE TO THE VERY END! Let me prophesy this into your life. “You will not miss your manifestation time in Jesus Mighty Name…. Amen “He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.” SHALOM……..!!!!!!!!!!!!!


“Therefore I tell you, stop being perpetually uneasy (anxious and worried) about your life, what you shall eat or what you shall drink; or about your body, what you shall put on. Is not life greater [in quality] than food, and the body [far above and more excellent] than clothing?” Matthew 6:25. In the prophetic words there are words that will break down barriers and dismantle years of living a frustrated life. There is a prophetic word that I need to speak into your life, but action is needed on your part. FIRST, I need you to declare in a loud voice, “The Glory of the Lord is coming down.” SECOND, I need you to confirm in your spirit, “Great doors are opening. My greater days are ahead of me.” As long as you let God have His way in your life, the enemy of your mind, body and soul will flee. Inside of you are bigger ideas and greater concepts that will change your financial picture for the absolute best. But your daily thoughts have to be fixed on what the Holy Spirit is requiring of you. By taking action today, your seed will keep the enemy at bay. Your life is improving because your seed is producing.
I hear the Spirit of the Lord saying that His glory is coming down on your household. You have been given power to speak and command your obstacles to move. In the game of life, you are not a spectator. You are a participant. The Holy Spirit is calling you off the bench and into the starting lineup. The water is being troubled for you to get your blessing. Don’t get caught staring at the pool when the Holy Spirit wants you to step in. Don’t allow fear to have you miss this golden opportunity to walk into your blessing. Keep your eyes on the prize. Healing is your virtue. As you prepare yourself to receive this life-changing word, God is making the crooked paths straight. “For all the promises of God in him are yea, and in him Amen, unto the glory of God by us.” (2 Corinthians 1:20) I need you to repeat after me, “I am spectacular.” Every day that you step out of the bed God is giving you an opportunity be spectacular. The pressures that are trying to turn you away from your blessing will not succeed, because the water has been troubled for you in this season. Trust the voice of the Holy Spirit. Your thoughts are changing and your environment is becoming conducive for the spectacular to happen.
The Holy Spirit reveal to me; You have been asking, “When will it be my turn?” Well, a sound has come from heaven saying, “You were born for a time such as this,” Some will sit on their faith and live a below average life, while others will mount up on wings of eagles, soar to heights unimaginable and purpose to live the God-kind of life. The Holy Spirit has heightened your ability to see further into the future. There is nothing can stop you now. Is there a word from the Lord that will erase your bad debt? Is there a word from the Lord that will pull you out of the valley? Is there a word from the Lord that will cause you to live your best life? I emphatically say, “Yes and Yes.” Never allow yourself to live in a system that does not operate within the laws of God. All meaningful growth starts from within. That’s the power of going into the spiritual gymnasium and working out. When you put in the work you will get your desired results. Your destiny is not a matter of chance, it is a matter of choice. When everything around you says it’s time to pack it up and throw in the towel, the Holy Spirit emerges onto the scene and says, “Not on my watch.” You are greater than that. In fact, the joy and journey of clearing those obstacles is what separates you and makes you worthy to receive your crown of glory. You have the power… * To speak to those things that be not as though they are right now. * To create the life you desire. * To refute any negative information you have received. * To create your own exits and entrances in life. * To tell your feelings how to feel. As you quickly respond to this letter, great doors are opening. Your future is filled with possibilities that are waiting for you to show up and fill out the applications. The prophetic word that is spoken over your life has the power to pull your blessings right out of heaven. Your enemies will scatter because you have entered into a season of praying without ceasing. What seemed improbable is now working for your benefit because your prophetic word is moving on the scene. Allow the Power of Prophecy to move you into Divine Order with God. Your testimony is going to be rich with God’s overwhelming love and grace. I hear the Spirit of the Lord saying, “Your nets are breaking in this season. Your family members and friends will benefit from a great catch. There will be no waste in the upcoming season. Everything God gives you will serve a greater purpose.” “Great Doors Are Opening For You In This Season… Respond Quickly.” I break every Curse in your Life that has Tied to the Greatness of your Destiny that is Living Inside you in the Mighty Name of Jesus. Amen “He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.” SHALOM…….!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


“Now To Him Who, By (In Consequence Of) The [Action Of His] Power That Is At Work Within Us, Is Able To [Carry Out His Purpose And] Do Superabundantly, Far Over And Above All That We [Dare] Ask Or Think [Infinitely Beyond Our Highest Prayers, Desires, Thoughts, Hopes, Or Dreams].” Ephesians 3:20 AMP. I hear the Holy Spirit saying, “Take the limits off of your mind.” DO NOT allow another distraction to frustrate you. So much of your success is determined by what you are able to ignore. The enemy is great at planting bugs of negativity in your mind. Your adversaries are those big problems that will not go away on their own. When too much thought is given to them it seems to make things worse. It can feel like you have fallen into a barrel of crabs. Every time you pull yourself up and attempt to climb out, a crab in the very same barrel reaches up and pulls you back down. The Holy Spirit revealed to me during my morning prayer that it is time to clean out your house. There is too much clutter that has been sitting around for years collecting dust. It is time to pull out the spiritual vacuum and get to work. The enemy is not just trying to slow you down, he is doing everything he can to stop you. But fear not, because the Holy Spirit is chasing away the evil that is trying to overtake you. This may sound strange, because it could appear as if the enemy is winning right now. But I can guarantee you that your misery is being exchanged for happiness. Your prophetic word is your vacuum in this season. Every negative thought or idea lying dormant in your mind is being cleared out and discarded. A deeper level of winning is being blown in your direction. Did you know that the clutter in your home says something about the clutter in your heart and mind? Are you collecting dust balls or are you a dreamcatcher? The prophetic word comes to clean up and rearrange your life for the greater.
Your daily life is a reflection of your inner world. I want to challenge you to take a closer look at your house and try to link the rooms and objects in them with the state of your physical, mental, spiritual and emotional health. It is time to give the enemy his eviction notice. It is time for some spiritual housecleaning. Let him know that he cannot live there anymore. You receive tremendous power when you start cleaning out your house. The Holy Spirit gives you the confidence that winning from a deeper level is possible. Regardless of life’s mishaps, keep dreaming and keep believing. The Holy Spirit is elevating you in this season right before your enemies. In life you are given many opportunities to get it right. This time I don’t see you blowing it. When you start vacuuming those weighty thoughts and ideas out of your mind, you are making room for the miraculous to happen. Spiritual house cleaning is the most important thing you can do for your mind. In order to sit in the winner’s seat, your mind must be clear to receive the full download from the Holy Spirit. I want to reassure you that your time has not been wasted. What the enemy thought would break you has only made you stronger and wiser. God’s plan for your life is unfolding and your future has doors that cannot be locked. The Holy Spirit revealed to me that within the next 7 days, 7 weeks or 7 hours, your Angel of Blessings is paying you a visit. Be on the lookout, because it is only according to your faith. As you release the seed and clear the clutter in your mind, the Holy Spirit is going to give you new insight about your destiny. “Rather, it should be that of your inner self, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is of great worth in God’s sight.” (1 Peter 3:4) Your future is… * Based on the sum total of your thoughts. * Not predicated by your past habits or deeds. * Not in the mouth of your enemies. I hear the Holy Spirit saying, “You can see clearly now, the clutter is gone.” The obstacles are no longer in your way. When your spiritual vision is clear, you are not fazed by the clouds of darkness. You have been wired to fight through adversity. Proverbs 3:5 says, “Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.” I need to rush to you a powerful word of prophecy that will clear all the channels so that you can hear God on a different frequency. This word of prophecy that I have for you will penetrate your heart and become your bridge in the midst of the storm. Shut down all voices that do not sound like the voice of God. You have been endowed by the Holy Spirit to come out of the valley with your arms raised towards heaven with praise. The prophetic voice of God has spoken. Your mind is being renewed in this season. “Take The Limits Off. God Is Trying To Get Something To You.” I break every Curse in your Life that has Tied to the Greatness of your Destiny that is Living Inside you in the Mighty Name of Jesus. Amen “He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.”


“When God closes a door, He always opens a window.” (1) EVIL USED FOR GOOD The Bible is full of accounts where God used the evil will of mankind to achieve much good. One example was with Joseph, who was sold into slavery and ended up being in prison for years, even though he was innocent. Joseph’s conclusion should be ours too, as he told his brothers, “As for you, you meant evil against me, but God meant it for good, to bring it about that many people should be kept alive, as they are today” (Genesis 50:20). By Joseph’s being brought to power in Egypt, he was able to save and store enough grain that Jacob’s family was saved; thus, Israel survived. (2) WHAT’S BAD FOR US? When God closes a door for us, He does so because He knows it’s not for our best. Since we are stubborn and often try to break the door down if it doesn’t open, God secures the door for us so that we can’t even pick the lock. The fact is, if God closes one door, it often pushes open another door, or at least it opens a window for us to crawl through to do God’s will, whatever that is. (3) WHAT’S BEST FOR US? God always knows what’s best for us, better than we do. So we must trust God to open the doors that are best for us and close the doors that are not good for us. But when doors close, we should thank God for it because we can hurt ourselves or others by forcing doors open that God closed. Besides, if He closes one door, He has another planned for you to walk through. (4) CLOSED DOORS AND OPEN WINDOWS One day when it was very windy, our front door was blown open by the wind. This caused the backdoor to slam shut. The point is, a closed door may open another door for you to walk through. Trust God because He is sovereign over all the doors and windows in our lives that open; and close and everything that happens, both good and bad, is for our ultimate best (Romans 8:28). CONCLUSION
God can use evil for good. Just looking at the cross tells us that God used the evil works of men to bring about the salvation of many who would believe in Him. So when God closes a door, He always opens a window or perhaps another door May God Richly Bless You In Jesus Merciful Name…Amen “He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.” SHALOM…..!!!!!!!!


TODAY ON FRANKLY SPEAKING – A SENSE FOR DIRECTION. The reason many of us are frustrated and perplexed in life today is because we could be lost in life. We are just alive we are not truly living. We are not deliberate in our actions and we are not in charge of our life situations. We are constantly being tossed by situations, challenges and the desperation for basic and social needs. Our needs not our purpose have become the bases for actions and reactions. Hence we wake up daily, living a life of reaction to the need to feed, clothe, live in a comfortable home, educate our children, have enough money and be socially accepted. The ‘whys’ of our daily choices are basically in reaction to all that is happening around us. We are not happening to anything, we are just reacting to everything. A person who takes up employment so as to meet the needs in life and pay bills and be socially relevant can hardly achieve anything Phenomenal. For most, the ability to survive is their goal in life. This in my opinion shouldn’t be a goal as you will still die eventually, we all shall one day, so why make survival a goal? A life of purpose is such that is meant to make a mark; a life that builds, a life that develops, a life that creates, a life with meaning and relevance in this world and to humanity at large. A life with transgenerational impact. Dear friend, what is your life about, where is your destination, what is your goal in life? What exactly makes you different from every regular person? Hmm Do you have a catch up mentality – wanting to catch up with everyone else around or you have your own defined journey and purpose and destination that is unique to you and your reason for being in this world? When your life is all about waking up, going to work, working hard, getting paid, paying bills and being comfortable, I’m afraid, you’re grossly undervaluing and diminishing the worth and purpose of your existence. When your thinking is basic – meaning it’s all about food, clothes, shelter and social security, you would hardly find fulfilment. You will always want more, you’ll hardly be satisfied and never be contented. This is because you don’t even know what you really want and what you’re hungry for. In this state, it will be difficult to be satisfied. When you’re not satisfied, you’d be unhappy. Every time you see genuinely happy people, you would assume it’s because of what they have, then you’ll get covetous and begin to chase what they have and if and when eventually you get it, you’ll realise you’re still empty and dissatisfied. A life without a reason, a purpose, goals and a destination can hardly be a coordinated, well directed and fulfilling one. You will hardly be happy. Dear friend, why did you go to school? Why did you study the course you studied? Why do you work where you work? Why are you in that company? Why are you in that industry? Where are you going with it? If your answers revolve around income, money, survival and bills; dear friend, you need to change the way you see life and the way you think. If you don’t, you will hardly experience true happiness. You will not really have a happy life, your happiness will only be transient and tied to people, situations and things; not deep, not within, not perpetual. You will lack joy if you lack purpose and direction for your life. Dear friend, you need to set clear, specific goals and a germane, purposeful reason for all you do. You need to have a superior and valuable reason for all you do. Don’t do things because everyone around is doing it. Have a personal and wise reason for doing all you do. Dear friend, think again, why do you do all you do daily? Why do you wake up each day? Why do you leave home each day? Why do you work hard each day? Why do you study so hard? Why are you writing the exams and professional courses? Why do you keep the friends you keep? Why do you go to the places you go to? Why do you join the associations you join? Many of us actually do these daily to address our internal struggle with self-esteem, and the desperation for acceptance. Many of us are working so hard because we naturally don’t feel good about ourselves and we hope to enhance the way we feel about ourselves through achievements and accomplishments. Without our jobs, certificates, bank accounts, family and profession, we feel very inferior; we think we’re nobodies. That’s why we use all these things we chase and hanker after to fill up the void we feel on the inside. Dear friend, low self-esteem is a psychological ailment and the antidote is not achievements and accomplishments. You can be the president and still suffer low self-esteem. It’s a thinking and upbringing problem. For many, achievements and material possessions literarily make us, we feel empty without them. This twisted psyche is the reason many crumble and are permanently damaged in life when they experience a loss of any of these. Many hardly recover from the loss of an employment, the collapse of a business, the failure of their marriage, a disappointing child, or the death of a spouse or loved one. We are extremely attached to these things; they feed us with life and they become the meaning of our lives. That’s why many contemplate suicide when they suffer great loss. A higher life is such that doesn’t consider all these as goals but as blessings. Dear friend, I don’t mean to demoralise you this morning, I just want to enhance your thinking and let you know your life must be worth much more than being blessed, you must become a blessing. You must set goals, you must have a purpose for your life, a destination; something you’re about and a personal reason for why you exist. That’s the best way to truly enjoy all these other blessings. When you have a life of purpose and meaning, you can effectively survive every season in life; seasons when you’re rich or broke, you’ll remain unshaken, the challenges of career, business and marriage wouldn’t trouble you that much; you wouldn’t be desperate about anything because you have a superior reason for living. Hence through the good and the bad and the nasty, you’ll cope so well and you’ll never lose your joy and peace as becoming a blessing is the source of true joy and perpetual happiness. Detach psychologically from people and things, connect with purpose and destination. Live a higher life that builds, creates and develops value for humanity. Follow your dreams and your passion. Do what your maker designed you for. Build your life around your inner core of happiness. Live the life you’re designed to live, the life you enjoy, not as imposed by people or the society. A life of purpose, destination and clear goals guarantees a high level of success and achievement than any other single skill or quality. Life is easier with a sense of direction, you prioritise and make better use of your time. Dear friend, I really want you to be excited, I want you to be happy, delighted and free from worries, fear, anxiety and vile social contest. I want to help you deal with that heaviness of heart; your concerns and worry about people and things you can’t do anything about. I want to refocus your attention on the need to be happy. To find your happiness within you not from around you. I want you to be the source of your own happiness. When work, career, business, finance, relationships, marriage and even your children make you unhappy, I want you to think about you and your personal dreams and get elated, inspired and happy. Don’t lose yourself in all these. You are very important to yourself. Own your life, create your happiness and your dream life. Can I suggest something you can do immediately today? Create a dream list for yourself – develop a five year fantasy you want to make come true. Think about yourself today. In five years, how do you want to look? What will you be doing? Who would you want to be with? Who would you no longer be with? What sort of family and lifestyle would you have? Your home, car, clothes and degree of physical fitness. The essence of life is dreams, goals and destination. The purpose of life is to make it much better than you met it. The reason for your being is for your life to cause people to give glory to your maker. Go for your dreams, go for your goals and your destination and enjoy every blessing. Don’t be tied, desperately to anything. Live from inside out, not from outside in. let your inward man take the lead. Conquer the deception of your senses, and the lies your eyes, ears and flesh tell you. Your life is worth more than things. Have a sense for direction.


Anything that can be improved carries within it the capacity to be better. The word better is a comparative of the word good and its superlative is the word best. This simply means if today you believe there is a need to improve your circumstances you are concurring with the fact that your life can be better. How do you know this? it’s simply because from all you see around and all you know, it’s obvious people are experiencing life circumstances better than yours even in this economic downturn. It is difficult or rare to desire strongly something you’ve never seen, heard or experienced before. We usually are desirous of something we know exist and we can for a fact apprehend. Meaning if today, you want a better life circumstance for yourself, you have at least an idea of how you want your next circumstance to be. You have a clue on where next you want to be in life and the progress or upgrade you desire to make. As we wake up daily, we see people, things, possessions, places and observe a lifestyle we are yet to attain in life. We see houses we can’t afford yet, cars we can’t afford yet, clothes we can’t afford yet, hotels, restaurants, lounges and very impressive relaxation and leisure points we can’t afford to visit yet. We frequently come across people that intimidate us in achievement, class, exposure, intellect, appearance and even style. We hear and read about great achievers, leaders and influencers in our society doing great stuff we can’t handle yet. We see friends, associates and colleagues enjoying fantastic marital relationships, we see happy people, rich people, powerful people and noble people interacting, networking, interrelating and driving the social and material direction of our society. We watch, observe, dream, pray, hope and aspire to one day, achieve our own dreams. Based on all these great and impressive things we see and hear about daily, the desire to improve our own circumstances too is naturally invoked. However, the gap or drawback in this ambition for many is that we do not really know how to upgrade. We really don’t know how to improve our life’s circumstance. The majority think a very good life is delivered by having lots of money. Once we see anyone living a great life, we conclude it’s a matter of cash. We then assume all we need to do to acquire the house, the cars, the relationships and lifestyle we really desire is to make a lot of money. We hence begin to chase after money desperately; some of us unto stress and untimely death. We seek highly rewarding but slave camp employments, and try to work at our businesses nonstop to make enough money that will deliver to us the kind of improvement we want in life. We wrongly assume enough money would deliver for us a great life. However, as important as money is to a great life, money alone will not deliver to us that great life we want. This is because pure cash is powerless and transient if we lack the right capacity, knowledge about the economic and social relevance. Let me explain this. You see, many who were comfortable a year or two ago may today be very broke and their life quality diminished because they had only cash without the right capacity, comprehension and relevance within the environment. If your life quality is purely a matter of cash, economic downturn such as we’re experiencing today can take you out. Economic forces can make nonsense of your cash if you lack contemporary capacity, comprehension and social relevance to float with. Many erstwhile rich and respected managers and directors in leading cooperation, multinational and top notch enterprises earning so much and living large back in the days become very broke, irrelevant and ordinary after retirement. This is because the dynamism in the economy made nonsense of their monies without contemporary capacity, comprehension and relevance. Many young people who are yet to experience the life quality and standard they desire are frustrated and even envious of their contemporaries who already are because their hard work and strategy is not delivering on their expectations of an improved life quality. Ladies and gentlemen, for you to keep stepping up in standard, life quality and class you must apply the right strategy. You don’t improve your life quality by chasing money. You improve your life quality by attracting first, the right people, second the right opportunities and thirdly, the right reward. Please get it right, you don’t chase these, you attract all these. People, opportunities and reward. There is this popular saying that birds of the same feathers, flock together. When you look around you and you see some people living the life you want to upgrade to, you don’t chase or run after them or pretend to be like them, no, you change your feathers to be like them. To upgrade to a particular socioeconomic strata, you must study and understand the strata or level. What is obvious is the lifestyle, achievement, possessions, ways and swag of a people belonging to a specific socio economic level, but what is hidden is what makes them tick. You must seek to know what drives them, what their core is, and what makes them flock. Money will fail to upgrade you if you don’t understand the core of those you admire in value, priorities, purpose and drive. If we all have 24 hours in a day and you work much harder than many people better than you in life, dear friend, there is a secret. Many who do not understand this, tend to conclude superior achievers are probably dishonest, shrewd or fetish in their ways. Hence justifying their inability to flow in that realm with these assumptions. Dear friend, the simplest secret to improving your life circumstance is simply in improving yourself. It’s not in chasing money, collecting personal details of important people or crashing events and high profile functions uninvited. It’s about improving yourself. You cannot successfully buy your way to your next level, you actually grow yourself to your next level. What are the things you need to grow? I’ll tell you. Number one, Knowledge. To upgrade yourself from a five figure income earner to a six figure income earner you must know what six figure income earners know. To grow your salary from the realm of thousands to millions a month you must know what those earning millions know. I’m not talking about movies, football, entertainment, weather, politics and general gist. I’m talking about economic, financial, career and business information. When you speak and you sound like them, and they learn useful things from you, you need not chase after them, they will come for you and propose business deals to you. Relevant business and financial knowledge common to that class of people you want to upgrade to is a powerful weapon of access. Your ability to comprehend and identify productive opportunities will upgrade your life faster than anything else. Secondly, grow your capacity. If you can do what they can do, they see you like them. For example If you can speak their quality of English, comprehend intelligent jokes, enjoy and understand their preferred form of entertainment – jazz, R&B for example, use effectively their kind of social media apps and communication device; not just owning, knowing how to use it and interacting with them on it, they will be more open to you. You’re beginning to flock. Thirdly, grow in maturity. High profile individuals comport themselves in certain ways. There is a way they behave, talk, interact and mingle especially in public. Most of them don’t use crass, low life, vulgar or offensive terms when communicating in public. They respect people and act like perfect gentlemen and ladies They hardly fight or quarrel over small matters and they overlook disrespect and bad behaviours from people of lower life level. They are usually together and are much matured. When you learn to act this way, you attract them. Lastly, character. You must be a man of your words, you must respect time, keep appointments, keep promises and be honest. People can’t stand liars, people can’t stand pretenders, don’t show off and don’t always yap and brag about the new big thing you’re up to, let it show itself. Ladies and gentlemen, if you look around you today and there are people living lives superior to yours in quality and style, the economy may not really be a hindrance, if it’s not holding down people more successful than you it means the possibility of catch up is still in place despite the economy. It’s time to re-strategize. Stop wasting your time waiting for the government to make all things perfect for you, perfect your life yourself. To outsmart and outgrow the economic downturn, simply grow you. Grow what you should know, what you can do and how you behave. The faster your growth, the better your circumstance. Make it happen.


No one exists and succeeds in isolation. It is contrary to human nature. In fact isolation is a form of punishment, hence imprisonment is quite a part of our human system to address misconduct and vile behaviours in our society. Isolation is not good for humans, to destroy any man’s confidence, guts and gusto, isolate him. It is tough to have any reason and motivation for living when you’re all alone in this world. It is repugnant to our human nature. That is why it is natural and essential for us to exist in family and societal formats. To have villages, communities, states, countries and nations. We are wired to do things together as mankind. Critical as this is to mankind, it can be very demanding, stressful and at times destructive relating with other humans. Human beings are the most difficult creatures to deal with on earth. Their intelligence, power and ability to choose makes it pretty tough dealing and relating easily with people. Hence as important as it is to relate with other humans, you must employ the needed wisdom, intelligence and tact required for successful and fruitful interactions. Human beings can deceive you, derail you, betray you, deny you, distract you, debase you and even destroy you. If you lack what it takes to cope with humans, you may fail woefully in life – your intelligence, capacity and hard work notwithstanding. To truly achieve your dreams, vision, ambition and purpose on earth, you must handle people as required. Heartbreak, treachery, rejection, abuse, falsehood, pretence, lies, deception, manipulation and oppression are some of the very negative and painful experiences you may go through in the hands of people no matter how careful. Worst still, you hardly suffer all these from the hands of total strangers, its always people who are close, people you have a form of relationship with, friendly people; people with access to you and your life and your heart. They are the ones capable of messing you up so badly and at times beyond total recovery. To avoid falling into difficult and painful situations with people, it is wisdom to occasionally measure exactly where you stand with all the different people in your life. One of the weaknesses of mankind is their inability to completely hide their true thoughts and feelings towards other people. No matter how we try to pretend or cover it up, it will once in a while come to the fore either as a remark, a reaction, a comment, a body language, facial expression or behaviour. Truth is every now and again, people show and tell us the truth about how they feel about us; we are not just paying enough attention to decode the message. At times it’s obvious but we choose to believe different, assume they were joking or they didn’t mean it that way. We get too emotionally involved with people we really want to be with to the end that it shuts our eyes and mindsights to how they see us and what they could actually do to us. When they eventually manifest their true inner intentions, we become badly hurt, broken and distraught. In our depression and regret, we then begin to recollect statements, remarks, behaviours and attitudes that signalled the possibility of what they eventually did, we would then begin to feel really foolish. We’d say in regret, we should have known. Dear friend, if you really value yourself, you need to manage yourself well. You must endeavour to protect yourself from hurt, pain and abuse as much as you can. To manage yourself well, you must manage your relationships well. To manage your relationships well, you must research, review, and measure your worth every now and again with all the people in your life. Your worth with people, what you mean to them; if you matter to them will determine how they would treat you and if they would eventually hurt you or not. Dear friend, don’t be fooled thinking people that are good and kind to you today are naturally good people. Let’s face it, human beings by nature are selfish and at times wicked. If anyone is still good, kind, considerate and loving to you, it’s purely tied to what you mean to them. It’s about how they value you and how you matter to them. If you don’t see this, if you don’t see why you matter to them and why they value you, it’s possible you take the factors for granted and eventually dismiss them, then this best friend could suddenly become a nasty enemy. Why? You’ve unknowingly terminated the gain and reason for being your friend. Now, these factors or gains may not even be tangible, like money, gifts or any form of material benefits. It may be attention, care; the pride of being friends or related to someone important, successful, rich or good looking, could be the affection, lust or the fact that they can use you. It’s not always about monetary gains or material benefits. Whatever they see as value in that relationship, once you compromise or withdraw it, they become a silent enemy. They will punish you. Dear friend, before you get into trouble with any of your friends, contacts and connections, take the time today to think through your relationships with everybody. There is always a reason behind a friendship, relationship, connection and/or intimacy. People always want you for a reason. Only the almighty wants you for no reason at all. How do you do this? 1. Pay attention. In conversations with friends and acquaintances there is general information, general gist and from it you can draw particular facts. Pay attention to the facts. Matters of fact from friends and relatives convey a lot. 2. Evaluate their worth to you. Every great relationship must be mutually beneficial. You must be giving and gaining as well. What are your friends sincerely willing to do, give, surrender or sacrifice for you? Evaluate your gains from all these people in your life, you may just realise you’re carrying so much weight and liabilities; wasting your time, energy and resources on people who are too eager to take but unwilling to give anything back to you even if they could. 3. Become selective. Begin to think up ways of gradually easing out people who only want to take but are unwilling to give from your life. Become more selective; build mutually rewarding relationships. Energise and get energised. 4. Grow your value. For those people in your life adding value to you in a way or another, creatively try to grow your value and worth to them as well. Give them a good reason to want you in their life and their circle. 5. Lastly manage your supply. Too much of everything is not good. When you’re too available, you become cheap and your worth begins to dwindle. Enhance your worth and value through reasonable scarcity. Remain dear and valuable to your friends and connections. Dear friend, destructive relationships exist within the family, amongst friends, social groups including churches and mosques, at work, in business and your neighbourhood. Measure your worth today. Please enjoy your day.


It’s for me disgraceful and somewhat upsetting the back to back breaking news about so many Nigerians whom over the years have acquired great wealth through theft. Many very rich Nigerians today have stolen from our common wealth and very many more have stolen from their employers and converted or diverted monies belonging to their employer companies and the nation to their own private pockets and accounts. Well, the attention may mostly be on the billions in naira and millions in pounds and dollars belonging to all of us but illegally taken over by those with access to these funds and stashed away in their various accounts all over the globe or used to acquire very costly properties and assets all over the world. But are we really taking note of non-public officials; I mean everyday employees in different companies stealing regularly from their companies? These are people working in various private establishments who have devised crooked means and schemes to successfully steal from their employers. We see many people in paid employment today with unbelievable bank balances, owning very expensive assets and properties and enjoying a lifestyle their ten years salary combined cannot deliver. We see them obviously living beyond their means, buying houses their salaries can’t afford, cars their salaries can’t afford; travels their salaries can’t pay for and expending in a moment their one year salary on a single item, yet they have no other known source of income except where they work. Is anyone taking note of such people? Ladies and gentlemen, it’s all the same, very common, a mindset that steals and feel it’s okay simply because many people are doing it and the more you’re able to steal the more the society appears to respect and honour you even in religious circles. Sadly, it is no longer that shameful to be caught stealing in Nigeria, in fact many everyday Nigerians passionately criticising and judging these big thieves that made the news are probably thieves themselves – stealing from their own employers. In today’s Nigeria, people don’t treat thieves like thieves anymore, in fact some will publicly stand by thieves and defend them with the argument that they’re not the only thief around. How sad. Ladies and gentlemen, in my submission, I think this wide spread, popular and celebrated habit of stealing in Nigeria may be an indication many have concluded it is impossible to be rich without stealing. It may also be an indication many believe there is an uneven distribution of wealth in Nigeria, they are thus angry about this and they believe the only way to balance things out or get their own share is to steal once they have the opportunity. Many are angry and I hear very many people passionately complain about how some people have cornered our common wealth. They are so upset and they wish they can just do something about it but feel so powerless against this so called greedy rich few. Ladies and gentlemen, let me share this hard truth with you, wealth is never evenly distributed naturally or by agreement amongst the citizens of any nation. Every citizen is expected to legitimately seek after a share of the wealth within a nation. Effective support mechanism may be provided in some nations though, but no one will knock on your door and offer you good cash just because you’re a citizen of that nation, you must go after wealth yourself. You know why? Sharing wealth equally amongst citizens is an idea or concept that can never work. It is impossible, it will surely fail; in fact it will destroy such a nation. Let me explain this. Let’s assume the government agrees to share all the wealth of Nigeria amongst its 170 million citizens equally today, I mean everything is shared equally and everyone gets the same amount. I guarantee you within 24 hours, some Nigerians will be richer, some will be poorer, some would have lost everything, some would have tripled theirs and very many will have so little left. Within a week, the society would largely have automatically readjusted itself to a state of uneven distribution of wealth. This is simply because, wealth is not really about the system; it’s more about the thinking and behaviour of the people within the system. I try to imagine a situation like that play out, and I can immediately see some Nigerians using their own share to desperately obtain visas to jet out of the country, some will immediately buy a big house to disgrace their landlords, some will buy expensive cars to impress friends and girlfriends, some will immediately marry new wives, some will throw very lavish and expensive parties, some will immediately order for the originals of the most expensive designer wears and accessories, some will immediately fall into the hands of fraudsters who will deceive them and take their monies, some will be robbed of theirs, some will invest in stocks and shares that will eventually go bad, and very many will not know exactly what to do with their share of the money. But guess what, very few will think up ways they can provide needed goods and services to all these very rich people and have them pay good money for it; subsequently becoming richer than them. And in a short while, the wealth will again become unevenly distributed. Ladies and gentlemen, the wealth of a nation is not so much about the system, it’s much more about the thinking and behaviours of the citizens within the system. Many people struggling financially today may blame it on lack of great opportunities, lack of right connections, lack of basic infrastructure, lack of privilege, the ruthlessness of those who want to keep dominating others, the activities of rich oppressors and lack of enabling environment. But let me tell you something, the greatest power to be rich or poor lies first and foremost in your mentality. It’s all about how you think. You see, making money and becoming financially free has little to do with hard work, it’s very much more about what you know. Do you know how to become rich? Many are not rich today because they really do not know how to become rich. They don’t know and they don’t want to learn. They simply want to still believe it’s by hard work. Though they see thousands of very hardworking people still romancing poverty and lack after several years, they just don’t want to change their minds that hard work alone can’t make anyone rich. If it’s by hard work, well diggers, tanker drivers and construction site labourers will be super rich today. To become rich, you need to learn how to become rich. There are many legitimate ways of becoming rich in Nigeria. You need to ask those who know how and learn from them. There may be so many other contributing factors to why you are struggling financially today. These may also include your priorities in life; is it leisure and pleasure or purpose, planning, self- management and focused pursuit? Are you greedy or materialistic or you’re disciplined and possess a strong sense of self-control? Are you independent or you live to please and impress others? Do you have a dream, a vision and you’re bold and courageous enough to pursue it? Do you add intelligence and common sense to your religious beliefs or you think God will come down from heaven and do everything for you? Or you’re so deceived that once you give tithes and offering and sow enough seeds in worship centres your miracle is on the way? How much understanding do you have about Nigeria, which is your operating environment? Do you have a copy of the constitution, do you understand our basic economics, our social and cultural tendencies and the various needs and investment opportunities? Do you have a well-articulated financial goal, vision and mission? What is your dream, what is your ambition, what do you want to do in this life? Ladies and gentlemen, legitimate wealth in Nigeria is a task that requires relevant study, knowledge, ecological intelligence, demographic intelligence and right work. It’s not just about what you want to do, it’s about what you ought to do. If you’re waiting for the government or anyone to bring wealth to your house and make you rich, dear friend, you’re on a long thing. Your legitimate wealth creation ladies and gentlemen starts with you. It’s about having the right mentality. Dear friends, fix the way you think today and make your own money.
