On Heralds today is …

The wright Brothers 

I wouldn’t like to bore us with much of history and dates this week because I am just so exited with these people that could believe in what 99% of the world would have called impossible and i really want you to read the moral lessons in this particular post carefully. Wilbur and Orville Wright Popularly known as the wright brothers are american inventors who were born in 1867 and 1871 respectively to the family of Bishop Milton Wright. While growing up the boys developed interest in mechanical activities and general science research. In 1889 they started their own newspaper, “The Westside News paper” that was doing quite well. By 1892 they later started their own bycicle shop where they fixed and sold their own personal bicycle designs. Being ardent followers of the aviation research of Otto Lilienthal a German Aviator who died in a glider crash the wright brothers resolved to make what so many would have called an impossibility a reality. They traveled to Kitty Hawk in North Carolina and started researching, working and experimenting their works on aviation. By 1903, December 17th precisely they succeeded in flying the first powered, sustained and controlled airplane flight in the world for 59 seconds at 852 feet. Just as Jesus said the prophet has no honour in his own home, the brothers discovery was not well appreciated by the Americans so they traveled to France(actually Wilbur went first before Orville joined later in 1909). In France there, they improved and started marketing their aircrafts even selling to the united States where they later returned to.Wilbur died in 1912 on may 30th while his younger brother and partner Orville died in 1948, August 19. What a life right?

Moral lessons

I personally see this two as legends who have refined the world’s mentality on possibility and I will like us to learn the following from their life.

1. It doesn’t have to be generally accepted to become a reality. So many people have given up their God given great visions just because of either personal doubts or sentiments from people, the wright brothers were discouraged by so many including their own father but they believed their vision and worked from fantasy to reality

2. As important as a certificate may be its not the ultimate criterion for greatness. Non of the wright brothers graduated from college, but history can not forget the part they played in the world of aviation. Stop giving excuses and give the world what God has put in you for the world.

3. Finally i will like you to know that you can be better than you are today, break your own records by doing those things you did good in much better ways. Don’t sit down, keep growing.

#Heralds20_Leadership

On Heralds this week is……

Mary Robinson

Who is she? She is an Irish lawyer, politician and diplomat who once served as the seventh and first female President of Ireland from 1990 to 1997 she also served as a United Nations High Commissioner for Human rights from 1997 to 2002. Mary Robinson was born as Mary Therese Winifred Bourke in Ballina, County Mayo, in 1944. Mary’s parents were both medical doctors. She was a very intelligent woman who did excellently even in academics as a young woman. Mary attended mount Anville secondary school in Dublin and proceeded to study law at Trinity college also in Dublin. From there she went to Harvard Law school. At a very early actually in Mary’s twenties she was called to the inner Bar as a Senior counsel. She was later appointed as a Reid Professor of Law in her alma mata Trinity college also know as university of Dublin. In 1970 Mary married her husband Nicholas Robinson and they were blessed with three children.

Mary Robinson’s political career began when she was elected into the Dublin city council in 1979,she served there till 1983. She later became a senator representing the Dublin constituency in the Irish upper house. In 1990 she was elected as the seventh and first female President of Ireland. She did so well in office that even her opponent during the presidential election Brian Lenihan himself praised her saying that she was a better president than he ever could have been. Mary Robinson brought to the presidency legal knowledge, deep intellect, and political experience. She reached out to the Irish diaspora and also built a better reputation for the irish more especially that she was the first serving Irish president to visit the United Kingdom and meet Queen Elizabeth II at Buckingham Palace. She later resigned after seven years in office (July 1997) to take up the position of United Nations high commissioner for human rights in September 1997. She served with the united nations until 2002. She is a member of the elders a group that consists of a group of world leaders brought together to contribute their wisdom, independent leadership and integrity to tackle some of the world’s toughest problems. She is the twenty fourth and first female chancellor of Trinity college (university of Dublin). Mary Robinson has won so many awards and international recognitions and she is a success in her own way.

Moral Lessons.

Mary Robinson is not best human being on earth as she has her own fault and some controversial perspective but she is someone we can learn from. Basically we should learn the following from Mrs Robinson.

1. Impact oriented leadership. If you must lead, live a legacy of impact and not just a record of occupying a position. You research deeper into Mary Robinson life and you may not agree with some things she fault for but one sure thing was that her impart in the life of her followers was appreciated especially as a President.

2. The reward of effective leadership is more responsibility. If you must grow then you must work at being effective even in your current assignment. No reward for failure and lack of standards.

#Heralds19_Business

​On Heralds this week is….

Jefferry Bezos

Hello…, guess you have heard of online shopping somehow either from a friend or a colleague? yea probably you should also have heard of Amazon.com, that’s great! Today we will be getting to know the brain box behind Amazon; who he was and who he has become. Jeffrey Bezos was born in 1964 in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Bezos’s mother Jacklyn Alex Furman was a teenager at the time of his birth. As a matter of fact her marriage to Jeff’s Dad only lasted for a short time and by the time Jeff was four his mother married her second husband Miguel Bezos a Cuban who immigrated to USA. He legally adopted Jeff and changed his surname from Jorgensen to Bezos. Jeff attended River oaks elementary school from his fourth to sixth grade. His interest in scientific and technological skill started right from his childhood days, his family later moved to Miami Florida where Jeff had his high school education from the Miami palmetto high school. While in high school it was so glaring that Jeff was a genius awaiting manifestation as he won the silver night award in the Student Science Training Program organized at the University of Florida. He later later got into the university of Princeton where he graduated with a B.sc degree in electrical engineering and computer science in 1986. After school, Bezos worked on wall street for a company known as Fitel, he also worked at Bankers trust and he worked at D.E. Shaw & Co. By 1994 Jeff took a step that changed so many things in the world today; starting Amazon.com. Bezos actually left his well paying Job to start what has made him the second richest man on earth today in a garage based on his foresight for the increasing need of the internet. Being a leader who does not joke with business details he has skillfully grown through the ladder with of success with powerful vision. It has taken over twenty years to get this far and that’s a show of an uncommon patience and resilience.

 Aside from Amazon, Jeff owns 3.3 million shares of Google stock which he bought in 1998, he also has investments in other companies that are doing well. 

He is the founder of Blue Origin which started in 2000 but became public in 2006. Its a human spaceflight startup company, built out of Jeff’s fascination with space travel and visionary interest in developing “space hotels, amusement parks, colonies and small cities for 2 million or 3 million people orbiting the Earth. They are expected to begin carrying “test passengers” in 2017 and initiate commercial flights in 2018. As at of June 2017 Bezos was reported to be worth US$85.4 billion. He is married to MacKenzie and they have four children.

Moral lessons

I believe you will agree with me that there are so many lessons to learn from Jeff Bezos but I will just pick out two that I feel every personality that desires to be great must cultivate.

1. Bezos is where and who he is today fundamentally because he is a man of vision. He knew what he wanted and he did what was necessary to get there. What are you living for? what is driving you? You don’t become great by wishing to be great, you become great by fulfilling your vision.

2. Patience and consistency are scarce virtues that you can’t do without if you must succeed in the business world. Jeff started amazon in 1994; that’s not two years ago. You will not succeed well if you have not understood the concept of patience and consistency. Rome there say wasn’t built in a day so stop expecting harvest when you should be weeding. I guess you got that!

Love and you

​Hmmmn! You had TIME while asking her out or saying yes to him, but to keep him/her you are now BUSY, there is ……oh!

“YOU CAN NEVER HAVE TIME FOR WHAT YOU DON’T MAKE OUT TIME FOR”

You are welcome to yet another edition of  LOVE & YOU

We are looking at the part 5 of

 Understand her LOVE Language .

We shall be focusing on the topic:

 QUALITY TIME

Quality time is giving someone your undivided attention.

For some partners, quality time is their primary love language, and if you don’t give them quality time, they will not feel loved.

You may think quality time is all about spending A LOT o f time together or going out and doing a lot of things together. Maybe that sounds exhausting or expensive. Loving a partner whose love language is quality time actually has very little to do with the amount of time you spend together and but has so much to do with HOW you spend the time you do have together.

#How do you know QUALITY TIME is his /her love language?

Quality time is a powerful emotional communicator of love. One medicine does not cure all diseases. Just as one love language does not communicate emotionally to all people. If you give your partner affirming words; if you express love by acts of service; if you touch them affectionately; and they still complain: “you are always too busy or too tired, you don’t ever have time for me” they are telling you that their primary love language is QUALITY TIME.

The #Essence of Quality Time

A central aspect of quality time is togetherness. I do not mean proximity (distance). Togetherness has to do with focused attention. A guy talking to his partner and punching phone is not giving her quality time or a lady talking with her partner on the phone and still doing another thing is not giving him a quality time, because he/she does not have his/her full attention.

#Dialects of Quality Time

Like words of affirmation, the language of quality time also has many dialects. One of the most common dialects is that of #quality_conversation . By quality conversation, I mean sympathetic dialogue where two people are sharing their experiences, their thoughts, their feelings, and their desires in a friendly, uninterrupted context. If your partner’s primary love languages is quality time, such dialogue is crucial to his or her emotional sense of being loved.

 Five Keys to Loving a Quality 

Time Love Language partner

1.  Give them your UNDIVIDED attention

Put the phone down! Nothing says ‘I love you’ like full undivided attention.

YES! For quality timers, undivided attention is the name of the game, don’t talk to them while you are focused on something else, it will drive them bonkers. Not while you’re watching something, not while you’re Facebooking, not while you’re gaming. If you are in the middle of something and they want to talk, it is better to say, “Just a sec, I’m almost done,” and then give them your full attention when you talk rather than trying to have a conversation while you are distracted.

2.  Maintain eye contact .

Maintaining eye contact tells your spouse that you have their full attention and will make them feel loved and understood. Quality conversation with sustained eye contact can be the key to his/her heart. Also listen for feelings. Ask yourself, “What emotion is he/she experiencing?”

3.  If you don ’t have much time, make the most out of the time you do have.

Even if it is only 10 minutes a day- make those 10 minutes count! Focus on each other. Talk, connect, express love etc. Just make it intentional and focused. Ten minutes of pure connection will yield much better results in way of connecting than two hours of being together without focused attention on each other

4.  Actively listen without interrupting .

A quick reminder on how to actively listen with the F.L.A.P. method: Focus, Lean, Affirm

(Paraphrase) and Probe (ask thoughtful questions).

Active listening is one of the most loving things you can do for your partner regardless of their love language, but unfortunately it’s not intuitive. Most of us go to stating our opinion, jumping to conclusions and interrupting. In short, we think of ourselves and our thoughts, words and opinions more than we think of our partners when we’re talking to them. This takes conscious effort to reverse, and there is no better time than the present to start practicing!

Perhaps the quickest mind trick is to actively try putting yourself in their shoes- try to see the world how they see it and feel the things they feel- while your partner is talking to you. Interrupting is like nails on a chalkboard for someone whose love language is quality time. It makes them feel unheard and uncared for.

5. Offer sympathy ,not advice.

We are often trained to analyze problems and create solutions. We forget that marriage is a relationship, not a project to be completed or a problem to solve. A relationship calls for sympathetic listening with a view to understanding the other person’s thoughts, feelings and desires. We must be willing to give advice but only when it is requested and never in a condescending manner.” – Gary Chapman

We just want to talk to be heard and understood NOT evaluated and instructed. Most times we ask: “Wait, do you want advice on this?” And that is a great question because most of the time the other one says no.

Conclusion

If you are in a relationship with someone whose love language is quality time- make the most of the time you have together, make eye contact, put the phone down and actively listen while he/she is talking. And if he/she wants your opinion, he/she will motion or ask for it.

JUST LISTEN ,  BE WITH HIM/

HER AND BE IN HIM/HER

This is  LOVE & YOU on

HAPPY WEEKEND.

On Heralds this week is……..
Dora Akunyili

She is one of the most notable women Nigeria has ever had more particularly because of her contributions to the health sector of Nigeria. Dora Nkem Akunyili was born on the 14th July 1954 in Markudi Benue state but grew up in her state of origin Anambra state, Nigeria. She was an excellent student and this was clearly displayed in her performance at school. She had her first degree in pharmacy in 1978 on a scholarship basis from the Eastern Nigerian Government Post Primary Scholarship and the Federal Government of Nigeria Undergraduate Scholarship. This first degree was obtained from the famous University of Nigeria Nsuka where she later obtained her PhD in 1985. Professor Dora as she later rose to become was a very disciplined and focused woman. She started her career as a pharmacist from 1978 to 1981, in the University of Nigeria Teaching Hospital (UNTH), Enugu, after which she ventured into academics as a Graduate Assistant (Research Fellow) in Faculty of Pharmaceutical Sciences, UNN from 1982 to 1986. While there she did tremendously well as she rose through the ladder of her career until she became a senior lecturer in 1990 and subsequently transferred to the to College of Medicine, UNN in 1992, where she was made a Consultant Pharmacologist in 1996, a position she held until 12 April 2001. Dora was a very honest woman who not only worked in the academia but also worked in the governing sector of her country. She was a Zonal Secretary of Petroleum Special Trust Fund (PTF), co-ordinating all projects in the five south-eastern states of Nigeria (Abia, Anambra, Ebonyi, Enugu and Imo States) for four years, She also served as a Supervisor for Agriculture and Member of the Caretaker Committee for her Local Government, Anaocha Local Government Area of Anambra State from 1994 to 1996. Akunyili served as a member of State’s Hospitals Management Board and State Advisory Council for Women Commission both in Anambra State of Nigeria from From 1992 to 1994. 

She obviously was well groomed with leadership activity before her appointment as the   Director General of the National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control (NAFDAC), Nigeria from April 2001-2008. Before her assumption of office all manner of adulterated, fake and substandard food and drugs were injected into Nigeria resulting in over 60 percent of fake drugs in circulation. But in the course of her tenure she brought in a new culture of excellence and honesty to NAFDAC and the entire Nigerian public service hence reducing the level of fake and counterfeit drugs in circulation to 16.7 percent with vast improvement in the food and other regulated sectors. She also served as minister of information from 2008 to 2010 where she also made impart in her own unique way. Before her death she ran for election as Senator for Anambra Central for the APGA in April 2011 but was defeated by Chris Ngige of the ACN . She immediately sent a petition to the Independent National Electoral Commission disputing the result. Akunyili died in an Indian hospital on 7 June 2014 of cancer. Dora had won so many international and local awards before her death. Dora was married to Dr Chike Akunyili and their marriage was blessed with six children who are doing so well in their various fields..     

Moral Lessons

Forever Nigeria and the world at large can not forget professor Dora Akunyili so quickly because she was a practical example of discipline,honesty and focus. She fought and stood for what was right without any form of religious, or tribal sentiments. She risked her own life to ensure the right thing was done and to a great extent she was a success. So in simple terms our lessons are questions,

¶ What will you be remembered for?

¶ What will you exchange for doing the right thing?

¶ What do you think will stop you from standing for the truth?

Learn from Professor Dora akunyili’s life today and be the change your world is waiting for.

Its being Heralds with Julius O. Akubo on Treasure network. catch you next week.

Don’t forget to download, read and share the just released Treasure Magazine volume 7.

Entrepreneurship Today

Welcome to another Informative edition of entrepreneurship today from Treasure Network. We appreciate you for joining us every week and we do hope we have been adding value to you.

Last week we discussed an entrepreneurs mindset, if you missed it please do read as it will help you develop a right entrepreneurs mindset.

On today’s edition of the program, we would be discussing Networking. Networking is an essential skill for business people and invaluable to entrepreneurs for building strong relationships with other entrepreneurs from different age, group, nationality and field of interest.

According to small business encyclopedia, networking is ” developing and using contacts made in business for purposes beyond the reason for the initial contact”.

Networking is important for growing a business and successful entrepreneurs know that the lifeblood of their business is found in making the right connections.

Whether its for potential business partners, marketing, sales, consultation or just to escape the loneliness of being a solopreneur. making connections is vital for business growth. Networking is an easy task for some especially the extroverts and for many it may not be so easy. My intention today is to share some proven practices that can help strengthen your Networking skill and grow your business.

1. Start with a plan: For any aspect of a business to succeed it starts with a good plan, networking isn’t any different. Most entrepreneurs leave this aspect to chance. Which shouldn’t be so. It should be planned and followed. In drafting a plan, ask yourself the following questions: who would I need to connect with to be successful? What groups, individuals, or company could be most beneficial to my business? What will help me to grow as an entrepreneur? How can I connect with them? Write down your answers and prioritize your networking activities in the course of a day, week and month. Incorporate your activities into your calendar and commit to a plan with a timeline.

2. Build and become a resource on Social media: It amazes me how business owners never explore the full potentials of networking on social media. It is so easy these days to build contacts and connections on social media. Use platforms like Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn to produce contents, market your business, comment on and engage with relevant industries content to build trust among your followers. This will help you network with contacts who can reach out to you and you can reach out to.

LinkedIn is a sophisticated platform for business professionals, use it often to update, share, congratulate and connect with like minds. Leverage on the power of the internet to grow your network around your business.

Its been Entrepreneurship today from Treasure network. Join us nextweek as we continue on the subject matter and share more practices that can help you grow your network and business.

We would love to hear from you as you leave a comment or write us at tnetwork430@gmail.com

I’m your anchor Aaron Ikoojo.

Have a blessed week.
