Dark Clouds Ahead? How Then Should You Respond?

Dark Clouds Ahead? How Then Should You Respond?

All over the world, many are getting disenfranchised because of fast-changing developments.

There’re growing fears of being displaced and devalued because of technological and other disruptive forces.

To make matters worse, fruits of economic and business developments are not being shared equitably.

The rich are generally getting richer.

Many at the bottom end of the socioeconomic levels are struggling to catch up.

These changes are made more complex and complicated by various forces of globalization.

Short of sound leadership and sustainable solutions, communities and societies have become more polarized and divided.

Leaders across the public, private and people sectors are struggling by and large to respond to these changes.

Unfortunately, social media have not made things any easier or better.

They have been used to fan dissatisfaction, unhappiness and even anger.

Unfortunately, crazy times breed crazy decisions.

Those who live by the sword of irrationality will eventually die by the sword.

But, I have faith in humanity.

As in the past, hard times will give rise to true heroes who will take humanity to a higher level.

Such is the ebb and flow of kingdoms and civilizations.

More importantly, what are you going to do with your life?

How will you rise up above the crowd and lead the field?

1. Stay optimistic.

Faith, hope, and dreams are part of the breakfast of champions.

2. Manage Your Emotions.

Don’t give negativity the slimmest chance to slip into your system.

Invoke positive emotions to support yourself to success.

Find meaning, joy, and fulfillment in whatever you do.

Be grateful and thankful for all the wonderful things around you.

3. Look After Your Health.

Health is life. To be fully alive is to be healthy.

Without good health, you cannot have a good life.

4. Take charge.

Be responsible for your life.

Don’t blame, justify, and give excuses for anything that happens.

5. Set goals.

Set goals and keep improving on your goals.
Press on with discipline, tenacity and resilience.

6. Keep learning.

Learning is a gateway to success.

7. Create Luck.

Luck is directly proportionate to smart sweat.

The smarter you sweat, the luckier you will become.

Remember: There are lots of good fight inside you and you have everything it takes to win every fight.

8. Surround Yourself With Success.

Surround yourself with inspirational and success stories.

Follow the footsteps of giants and improve on their footsteps, and you’ll end up in the same or even better destination.

Be at the best place to achieve desired success.

9. Fail successfully.

Every success contains seeds of failure that can accelerate the growth of your success.

Failure can be a friend and a great teacher.

It is a great feedback and learning experience.

If we never fail, we may not be compelled to learn, improve, and achieve better results.

In short, fail gloriously.

10. Live Well And Do Good

Integrity is first and last. Never sell your soul for any price.

Do the right thing.

Never do the wrong thing.

To avoid taking the wrong path, ensure that it is so much easier to do the right thing.

Make it very hard to do the wrong thing by establishing a positive set of ethos and conduct.

Have competent people to watch over you and ensure that you walk the straight and narrow path.

When you live well, achieve more, and do good, you will earn the respect and friendships of your friends, colleagues and customers.

The dark clouds will soon come to pass.

Life will be a purposeful, exciting and fulfilling experience.


I hope this message will find a place in your heart.
