Love and You

I asked “why do most ladies only understand GIVE! GIVE!! GIVE!!! and always use it to measure stinginess among the guyz during a relationship seminar, my brother friend of mine stood up in response and said “for God so loved the world that He GAVE, you can’t separate giving from love” and the response earned him the guy of the day award from all the ladies that were present, though the response didn’t go down well with we guys.

“NEVER WAIT FOR THAT BIG YES IN CAPITAL LETTERS BEFORE LEARNING TO GIVE”

You are welcome to yet another edition of #LOVE_ &_YOU

We are looking at the part 4 of

#Understand_her_LOVE_Language , as we shall be focusing on the topic:

RECEIVING GIFTS .

There are partners whose major love language is receiving gift, don’t mistake this love language for materialism; these partners thrives on the love, thoughtfulness, and effort behind the gift. If you speak this language, the perfect gift or gesture shows that you are known, you are cared for, and you are prized above whatever was sacrificed to bring the gift to you.

Gifts are visual representations of love and are treasured greatly.

To a Gifts-speaker, a gift is a physical reminder that he or she was on your mind and that the person cared enough to get it for the other person. Speaking of this language to your partner may seem like a small gesture to you, but it says, “Even though I was not with you, you were on my mind” to your gift-loving sweetheart.

Maybe you are concerned that you will go broke trying to show love to your significant other, but let me put your mind at ease: if your boyfriend or girlfriend speaks the love language of Gifts, you will not have to spend a lot of money to show that you care. He or she is not interested in your breaking the bank or spending beyond your means (and if he or she is, that is not tied to the love language of Gifts and is a red flag you need to address). What your honey is looking for is intentionality …proof that he or she is on your mind.

Recommendations for Showing Love to Someone through Gift- Giving

Make Any Day a holiday

There is no need to wait for a formal holiday to give gifts to your honey. Use the “national” holidays. For instance: today, August 14 , is National ice cream Day. August 17 will be National Shopping Day. Or, take December 27 (his/her birthday) which is Name Your surprise Day (which is appropriate since he/she likes doing that! – who knows!?!) Or, perhaps you can make your own holiday with your sweetheart! Choose a day and make it a holiday. Plan out its name and if it’s publicly or privately celebrated. Are any specific foods involved? Are activities involved? Have fun with it!

Gift-lovers are happy with spontaneous gifts and if you want to make them especially excited, have a gift delivered to their jobs! This is a big-time winner because it not only took effort to buy it, but you had to arrange for it to be delivered as well. Additionally, he or she will often beam with pride and show it to their friends to show others how much you love him or her. You will earn some serious points for this one!

Always Be on the Look out for Small Gifts

Notice what he or she likes. What kind of gum does she always buy? What is his favorite snacks? Where does she always shop for shoes? What store does he always wander into for his shopping? By paying attention to his or her likes and dislikes, you can keep a constant stream of small, thoughtful gifts coming. For a Gifts person, her favorite gum or his favorite snacks is a bona fide gift. “Thank you so much for thinking of me and noticing what I like. You must love me! ”

Never Return from a Trip without a Souvenir or a gift

Find something fun on all your travels and make a point to always bring a small gift back for your honey. It does not need to be big and flashy. It just needs to be a physical reminder of an emotional truth – you love him / you love her. ” Again, it does not have to be big or expensive; it just has to come from the heart.

Make Sure Christmas, Birthdays, and Anniversaries are a GIANT DEAL

Never, never, never skimp on a birthday for a Gifts person. Please, whatever you do, make birthdays as sacred as possible. After all, your gift-loving honey loves holidays devoted to giving and receiving gifts. Chances are he or she will make a big deal out of your birthdays, so be sure to do the same in return.

Anniversaries are also a special moment for a couple. For a gift-giver, make sure to celebrate it with a physical reminder of your love for her. He or she will really appreciate the sentimentality it creates over the years as the tradition is upheld.

Additionally, make sure Christmas is done right, too. Even if you have to cut back financially and get really creative, try to make sure you give your gift lover something special and heartfelt on Christmas morning (and some of the most meaningful gifts can be made, not bought – created from the heart). And if he or she cannot wait until after breakfast to open gifts, humor him or her. After all, your sweetheart is just as excited (if not more so) about giving you a gift as he or she is about receiving one

.Give Gifts When your Sweetheart is Insecure

Did you have a fight and your girlfriend is wondering where she stands? Bring her a small, loving gift when you seek reconciliation. This is not an attempt to buy her off. In fact, don’t even show her the gift until after you have talked through the issue and reconciled. Giving her the gift after will show her that you not only wanted to reconcile, but that even before you made up you still wanted to make her happy. It is a good move, fellas!

Has your man had a string of disappointments lately? Has his self- confidence been rattled? Encourage him with a gift. If he has a favorite quote, find it or have it engraved on a plague and bring it to him. Is his music collection missing one key album? See if you can find it and give it to him as a pick me up. Sometimes we cannot take our loved ones’ difficult circumstances away, but we can find ways to love and support them through it.

Do Not Get Lazy with your Gift Giving

If you bring flowers every Friday to your lady with no enthusiasm, she will likely not feel loved through it. In fact, it will be counterproductive. If you bring him a new tool every time you go to the shop and you fling it on the table or at him and say, “Here, this is for you” he may like the tool but feel no love radiating from your good deed. Remember that it is not only about the physical item, but about the excitement you have in giving it. If your giving becomes obviously routine or joyless, your sweetie would likely much prefer you forget the gift. If there is a Gifts person in your relationship (you or the other person), make sure to discuss this dynamic with each other.

Learn_to_Love_Giving

Giving gifts just does not come naturally to some people; in fact, is stresses some people out. Instead of enjoying the hustle and bustle of Christmas shopping, they despise the crowds and hate the pressure of finding the perfect gift. If they could have it their way, Christmas would no longer include the exchanging of gifts.

If you do not enjoy buying gifts, or it does not occur to you to buy gifts, ask for help. ~smile~ Be proactive and ask your sweetheart what lights up her day. Ask your man what surprises he enjoys. Then, make yourself notes to plan those surprises. Put a memo on your phone, microsoft Outlook (or other digital calendar) is a great place to set up reminders. Pick several random days and put “surprise gift” on your calendar.

After you do it for a while, it will get easier. Before long you will be thinking about your sweetheart when you are at the grocery store, the mall, or a random shop, and you will become quite adept at finding small gifts for your honey wherever you go. A steady flow of thoughtful gifts will keep love gushing into your gift lover’s love tank!

Conclusion

“All theories without practical will always end in the head”

Its not enough to speak love, show it

Its not enough to open your heart to love, open your hand to also give.

Its not enough to imagine love, prove it.

Entrepreneurship Today

Majority of the worlds populace (esp. Nigeria) believes they are wired to become an employee and nothing more. They believe by so doing, they would be successful and enjoy the good life. However, they is a select few (by choice) who have shattered the stereotypical idea of what it means to be successful by owning their own business. This all boils down to having the right mindset.
Good evening and welcome to today’s edition of Entrepreneurship Today from Treasure Networks. We are glad reaching you and we appreciate you taking out time to follow us on this program every week.

Today’s edition, we would be discussing “An entrepreneur’s mindset”. I believe you agree with me when I say mindset is what separates the best from the rest. Entrepreneurs are not born, they are made. It was Peter Drucker who said “most of what you hear about entrepreneurs are all wrong. Its not magic, its not mysterious and it has nothing to do with genes. It’s a discipline, and like any other discipline, it can be learned”.

Financial times lexicon defines Entrepreneurs mindset as “… A specific state of mind which orientates human conduct towards entrepreneurial activities and outcome”. Individuals with entrepreneurial mindset are often drawn to opportunities, innovation and new value creation.

Mindset is one of the major determinant of success in pretty much every walk of life. In other words, the thinking patterns you habitually adopt largely govern the results you achieve. Either you are currently running a business of yours, or employed in someone’s business, having an entrepreneurial mindset is the key to growth. A business owner who still thinks like an average employee will experience stunted growth, while an employee who thinks like an entrepreneur will experience a sharp rise in his or her career. So you have to think differently to succeed. Here are some mindsets entrepreneurs hold dear and apply.

1. Responsible for all decisions: Entrepreneurs know they have the opportunity to create something from nothing and this will require making big decisions about what must be done, when and how. They don’t wait for things to happen or for someone to help them decide. They take responsibility of making decisions promptly regardless of the situation or outcome. They understand that opportunities are short lived and at such develop a sense of urgency that helps achieve their goals.

2. Fearless: “Where most avoid risk, entrepreneurs see potential” Robert Irvine. True Entrepreneurs can leverage anything to amass funds they need for their startups. These are the ultimate optimists, because they believe their investment of time and money will eventually pay off.

3. Learning is continuous: Employees all have a job description requiring a specific skill, hence no desire to learn more. But entrepreneurs involve themselves in learning many skills ranging from getting investors on board, marketing your idea,learning to setup a spreadsheet or even using an unfamiliar technology. What needs to be done, has to be done. There is no room for excuses.

4. Love of challenges: When confronted by problems, many with an employees mindset shy away but entrepreneurs on the other hand rise to the occasion. An entrepreneur doesn’t think anything is insurmountable, he looks at adversity in the eye and keeps going.

5. Value of mistakes: recently read a book by Sam Walton ( one of the richest men in America) and I learnt ” not only should I not fear mistakes but I should value them”. You may ask, why should you value a mistake? This is why: each mistake you make teaches you more about yourself and your business. Entrepreneurs know this and it has made them better.

Entrepreneurs are set apart by their ability to stay driven and passionate about their purpose especially when things aren’t easy. Keep your goals, visions and mission at the forefront of your mind at all times and you will definitely be taking on the mindset of a real entrepreneur. As one of my mentors would always say ” faces don’t change the world, minds do”. I urge you to cultivate a healthy entrepreneurial mindset either you are an employee or business owner and watch your life being transformed.

I hope we have added value to you today. Thanks for joining us on today’s edition of #Entrepreneurship_Today. We love to hear from you as you leave a comment below or write us at tnetwork430@gmail.com

Don’t forget to join us next week for another interesting edition. I am Aaron Iko-ojo have a great weekend.

#Heralds17

​On Heralds this week is…..

Strive Masiyiwa 
He is a Zimbabwean philanthropist and entrepreneur based in London. He was born on the 29th of January 1961. He had his primary education in Zambia but moved to Scotland to complete his secondary education. He thereafter proceeded to the university of wales where he obtained a degree in Electrical Engineering. He is the chairman and founder of Econet wireless. 

What actually interested me most about this man abd obviously lead to his being featured on heralds this week is that he has used his wealth to provide scholarship to over 100, 000 young Africans in the past twenty years through his family foundation. Aside from that its also on the records that he supports over 40,000 orphans with educational initiatives, as well as sponsoring students at universities in America, The United Kingdom, and China. He has actually won so many international and local recognition due to his excellence in business and most especially due to this generous lifestyle of his. Masiyiwa is regarded as one of African’s most generous personalities and is a member of the Africa Progress Panel. He is married to Mrs Tsitsi Masiyiwa and they have six children.

Moral Lessons

You may be wondering what to learn from this legend. Its not far fetched, its glaring and it is the giving lifestyle. How often do you consider giving back to the society from the little you think you have. Little wonder why the rich keeps getting richer and the poor maintain their stand. The scriptures can not be broken givers will never lack. Stop waiting for the wealthiest people to give you, you also find someone or some people to bless and make happy to thank God for the way your supposed little blessings is affecting them. Learn to give back to the society and you will eventually find out that its part of the reasons why Job in the Bible was the wealthiest from the east. Masiyiwa may not be the wealthiest man on earth but over 100 thousand people have had reasons to smile because he existed. Yours may just be one person and not 100 thousand so find that person or those people.

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.

Wishing you a blessed week..

Love and You

​Show me your bae and I will tell you what you have been doing.

You are welcome to yet another edition of LOVE & YOU
We are looking at the part  3 of  Understand her LOVE Language, as we shall be focusing on the topic:

ACTS OF SERVICE. 

Partners whose love language is acts of service love to help others out and love to have others help them out! These partners will probably show up with enthusiasm and seem excited to do you a favor (e.g., get chicken soup for you if you are sick). These are also the partners that feel so loved and cared for when you serve them in some way.

Don’t be that typical African lady who meets her bae washing and doesn’t even offer to help but will have all the stories to bore him while he is washing, don’t be that typical Nigerian guy who will come and meet his bae cooking in the kitchen and sit in the parlour and be commending her cooking skills and call her all sort of lovely names without offering to help out. 

If your sweetheart speaks Acts of Service, he or she is probably happy when you do an undesirable job such as tiding up the ward rope, washing dishes. Have you ever fixed an appliance or untangled a necklace only to get the world’s biggest “thank you” from your honey.

Recommendations for Showing Love to Someone Through Acts of Service

Look for Opportunities to Serve Him or Her

There are obvious ways to help your partners whose love language is acts of service, but there are also other ideas which you can uncover by paying careful attention. Maybe he always forgets to get a church bulletin until he is already settled into his seat on Sunday morning. Slip out and go pick him up a bulletin. He will appreciate the thought. Perhaps she is always forgetting her lipstick. Find out what shade she wears and keep a stick in your car, in your house. She will find it sweet that you were thoughtful and made her life a little easier.
Help With Chores

This is pretty cute and dry. Help around the house, help in the yard, help with a project, help with a ministry, help with Christmas shopping ; the sky is the limit to how much help you can give your partners whose love language is acts of service. First, find out the chores he or she grossly despises and capitalize on them. Does she hate cleaning out the garage because she always runs into spiders? Be her valiant knight and kill the spiders (and clean the garage)! Is his shower black with filth? What an act of love it is to clean a single man’s shower! Can you fix computers? Then you always have a way to show love through Acts of Service.
Pamper Him or Her

It is raining. Her car is across the parking lot. Take the keys and trudge through the puddles in an attempt to keep your lady love dry and happy. He is feeling poorly  after three weeks of working sixteen hour days, he is under the weather,  Set him up on the couch with his favorite magazines, games (iPad, computer, etc.), and bring him the remote. Make him his favorite food. Maybe it sounds cheesy, but he will appreciate it more!
 Offer Help to Your Sweetheart When He or She is Feeling Insecure

Just as a Physical Touch person needs a hug when he or she is down or a Words of Affirmation person needs a verbal pick me up, Acts of Service people need their sweethearts to serve them. If your girlfriend has a huge presentation to give at work the next day and she is feeling overwhelmed, help her organize her files. Bring her a favorite cup of herbal tea. Go fill her gas tank so she does not have to worry about it in the morning while she is crawling with nerves. Tell her that you will bring her lunch after the presentation to help her celebrate its completion! All of this practical help will show your Service person that you highly value her.

Let Your Help Come from the Heart Make Doing Acts of Service a Habit

Even the most tiresome jobs in life become easier the more we do them (largely because our competence in doing them increases). The faster we make something a habit, the sooner we can stop forcing ourselves to constantly think about it. If you need to show your honey Acts of Service, make yourself do it faithfully for a while and before you know it you will be doing it without thinking twice!

Conclusion
Make sure you are helping and giving because you want to; however, don’t overextend yourself and feel resentful for doing the lion’s share of the giving.

Acts of Service lovers don’t want people helping them out of obligation. They love a cheerful helper! A happy smile and a helping hand translates to “You are the best and I love you!” And if your honey does speak the language of Service, he or she will probably be serving you a lot as well. After all, it comes naturally for them!
This is LOVE&YOU on  Treasure Network with  Ocheh Emmanuel. 

See you same time, next week as we shall look at  receiving gifts. Don’t forget to like and equally share this post. HAPPY WEEKEND.

Entrepreneurship Today

Welcome to today’s edition of entrepreneurship today from Treasure Network. We are glad bringing this program to you weekly and we appreciate your commitment to read all we bring your way.

Last week we talked about finding your passion and earning from it. We also stressed that passion is needed for your business to overcome its challenges and experience true gainful growth.

On today’s edition of entrepreneurship today we would be discussing another interesting quality which every entrepreneur must posses to experience growth. We would be discussing INNOVATION.

They was a time rodents find their way into my house. In getting rid of them I used different methods until I finally eradicated all. Hence validating the saying there are many ways to kill a rat. Using different methods was me being innovative.

Innovation According to Oxford Advanced dictionary is ” the introduction of new things, ideas or ways of doing something…..” Innovation means introducing something new. This can be a process, model, idea, product or a service. For example, introducing an idea or a new equipment that can reduce the electricity consumption by some percentage is an innovation.

Innovation is the key to growth, without it most start ups and organizations would forever be stuck doing the same old things, the same old way. New products, new services and new ways of doing business would never emerge.

An entrepreneur with vision and passion for his business might attain great heights but if he lacks innovation he wouldn’t survive long in the competitive world of business.

Innovation calls for creativity and new thinking. Innovation does not mean invention. Invention is creating something new from scratch while innovation creates change and add value to existing product or service.

Think of Jeff Bezos ( Amazon) who built an online book selling business in a world of brick and mortar booksellers. Or moving the world to electronic readers by coming up with Kindle and a digital bookstore.

You may say ” I’m not innovative” but let me ask you a question. What will you do, when driving and you notice too much traffic on your current route? Of course, you will find another route with less traffic. Its natural, almost everybody does that. That is innovation. Finding something and exploring ways to do it better. We are all innovative, the difference is some put their innovative mind to use while others don’t.

Though we are all innovative by instinct, there are certain catalyst which spurs our innovative mind. These catalyst are : economic changes, technological changes, new knowledge, new market, etc. These things make a person think of a new product, services or business process. Innovation helps an organization to be strong and competitive in the business world.

Opportunities abound around us, find these opportunities, use them to solve problems and as you think about technology, think about the problems and many things you can solve with technology.

Its been Entrepreneurship Today from Treasure Network and I’m your host Aaron Iko-ojo. We hope we have added value to you today. Join us next week for another informative and educative edition. We would love to hear your views on the subject discussed as you leave a comment or write us at tnetwork430@gmail.com

Have a Great weekend.
