    Tear The Envelope And Unleash Your Greatness

    Guest post by Israel Godwin

    Anyone who refuses to test his limits, anyone unwillingly to move out of her comfort zone, is destined to live life inside the envelope. (Ben Carson)

    Many died and some are dying silently because they are not living the kind of life they envisioned for themselves and it all burns down to a single reason; people are not willing to risk.

    People put on this miserable look on their faces not knowing that the life we are living today is as a result of the decisions we made sometimes in the past. If you have a long life dream to make it real in life then you should be prepared to stay out of your comfort zone and avoid being paralyzed by fear.

    Fear limits what you can achieve. It has been noticed that a lot of people often doubt their abilities and capabilities; that is what fear do to you. It imprisons your mind and beliefs thereby making people more cautions rather than making attempts and taking risks to make the future they dreamt of.

    There is a known fact, no matter how you try, you can not eliminate all risks. Which means some risks are worth taking. Don't be fooled, there is a need for you to step out of that convenient zone (that can't even guarantee something better) and go out for more challenging task to boost your ego and achieve your dreams.

    Successful people look for the opportunities they want and if they can't find them, they create them. Most of the renowned leaders and achievers stepped out of their fears and environment to fulfill their wishes and desires.

    One basic thing is that it may sound too hard or tasking or even difficult but it is not impossible, but don't be dismayed instead remain focus and positive. No tyranny of circumstance can imprison a determined will.

    Make it your desire to achieve big things, step out, move out of your comfort zone to a learning zone. It will be interesting to know that the most important developments in science, history, technology and the arts come from taking risks.

    So I'm urging you to tear the envelope now, Stop trying to play safe because fear is like a condom that the system uses to screw us and none of us would be here if everyone practice safe sex.

    Chase your dreams, if you have anything you want to do, do it, go after it with enthusiasm and don't stop until you get it. Get out of the envelope today and you will be amazed at your accomplishments. Live Your Dreams.

    Seasoned Life Journal New Logo

    It's almost 5 years since I officially started Seasoned Life Journal. It's amazing to know how much It has evolved. When I remember the way this blog looked at it's inception, I just keep laughing. Honestly, it looked like a joke at first.

    From the funny looking design to the ugly header banners to plagiarized content and so on. Well that's not the story for today. I think I will find time to do a comprehensive post on this blog's history.

    Anyway, if I had waited for all circumstances to be favourable, maybe I might not have started at all. Perhaps, even Leverage Conference might not have been a reality.

    Just by my commitment to this blog, a lot have happened to me. From the opportunity to privately mentor and tutor people (who are also doing very well now), to speaking engagements and so on.

    New logo GIST

    The main purpose of this post is to unveil the new logo. We have finally come up with something that really depicts what we stand for here at Seasoned Life Journal. Courtesy of     Bishopforte studios.

    7 Reasons You Get Frustrated in the Pursuit of Your Dreams

    Vector by Freepik

    Every man and woman in existence seeks for a certain level of expression. There is an innate thirst for fulfilment - to leave a legacy.

    There are a endless number of people from ages past who filled this thirst while some didn't. In my part of the world, I have come across a lot of persons with dreams and burning passion like myself.

    Some are getting it right and blazing the trail while some are still struggling to find their feet.

    To the latter, every effort seem to be an attempt in futility. It seems they count more defeat than victories. It's an endless cycle of frustration.

    Based on my observation and research, I came up with some reasons that can make you experience ceaseless frustrations in the pursuit of your dreams.

    It's not an absolute list but I believe this will help someone who reads this post.

    #1. It's not your dream.

    Some persons in life are actually pursuing someone else's dream. They are on course towards the vision of another. They are trying to be like someone else. The motivation is primarily external. The drive does not have an intrinsic source.

    Now, I know it's possible for someone to inspire you. There's a possibility that you can use the vision of another as a reference point. But it becomes yours when you internalise and personalise it.

    You have decided to take ownership and build something of your own out of it. You are self driven and self motivated. It moved from just an inspiration to a personal conviction.

    You are the one who is taking the initiative. You are fully intoxicated with what you stand for.

    Even when you hit hard obstacles and it feels like it's time to give up, the inner source of your momentum propels you to victory.

    Hence, it has never been about your father, mother or friends. You are not trying to please anyone. You are only driven by the cry of your spirit to fulfill destiny.

    When you anchor your dreams on people, you will be disappointed - especially when you don't get the response and results they are getting.

    Never try to be like someone else or to anchor your destiny on the descriptions and prescriptions of another man.

    #2. You are in a haste.

    "Beware of endeavouring to become a great man in a hurry. One such attempt in 10,000 may succeed. These are fearful odds." - Benjamin Disreali

    Anything of great value is developed with time. King Solomon of the Bible wrote that "There is time for everything under the sun...Time to sow and time to harvest."

    It's only a short sighted person who would even think they have sown enough. Do you think you have sown enough? Can you ever have enough sowing? Do you think you are ready to handle greatness? Do you have the character needed to sustain greatness?

    The very sign that you are in a hurry shows you are not ready. It's called the discipline of persistence.

    Napoleon Hill said "persistence is to the character of a man as carbon is to steel."

    I have been doing an understudy of top persons that I admire their works in various Industries. I discovered they had all put in at least 10 years of consistent hard work and value.

    When you have a shallow understanding of times and season, the discipline of delay gratification and self denial, you will wallow long in frustration.

    Long fellow popular quote says:

    "Those heights by great men, won and kept, were not achieved by sudden flight. But they, while their companion slept, were toiling upward in the night."

    I looked up for quotes and I found another interesting one by Brian Tracy. He said "Your success in life depends more on the person you become than on the things you do and acquire."

    There is a person you are suppose to become. There is a diamond in you that needs to be polished to the surface. There is a gold in you that needs to be burned to the surface. Don't be in a haste.

    #3. Unmatched Competence

    Sometimes, it's not about the vision. The issue is that you are not growing in your capacity to meet up with the vision.

    This is a sign - when you do not know where to go and what to do to make things better.

    Sam Adeyemi, senior pastor of Daystar Christian Center Lagos Nigeria said "wherever you find a person who has developed the capacity...that person becomes a magnet." 

    The truth is that whatever you don't know, you don't know. You can pretend to know but it won't match up with the quality of results you produce.

    Are you truly committed to building competence/capacity? 

    Be committed to serious practice. That's where the mastery will spring out from.

    Get exposed. How much do you dedicate to your own self education? This is not about University, College or Medical school. This is about the school of life.

    Whatever brought you to where you are, won't take you to your desired end. Things are changing and somethings you might be holding unto are becoming obsolete.

    How much do you invest in yourself? I suggest you use what is called the "3 percent formula." It says you should use 3% of your income to invest in your personal education every month.

    Talent is overrated. You will have to raise the bar. If you are doing what the average person can do, you will get an average result, and belong to the league of mediocres. Resolute to be a lifelong student in the school of life.

    4. You don't seek for help.

    This is an extrapolation of the last point. You see, I believe so much in the principles of the Bible. Jesus the Christ said "Ask and it shall be given. Seek and you will find. Knock and it will be opened unto you."

    I discovered a lot of persons who get all grumpy and what to give up never really ask people for help. Actually, they are asking and seeking for the wrong things.

    Meet people and ask questions. Kop kopmeyer said "learn from the experts. You will never live long enough to learn all for yourself."

    Permit to share another of Brain Tracy's quote. He said "All the answers have been found. All the routes to success have been discovered. Everything that you need to learn to move to the top of your field has already been learned by hundreds and even thousands of other people. And if you ask them for advice they will give it to you."

    #5. You seek for people's approval.

    This one gives me great concern because people whose childhood were filled with criticisms fall into this category. They have this constant fear of rejection.

    In seeking people's approval, some people want a pat on their back in other to establish their value. They want someone to say "that's a good idea" to validate their relevance.

    This is risky because there are a lot of people who will turn you down and you might end up accepting the fact that you are not good enough.

    A true visionary doesn't need that. You must learn to approve yourself and take action. Then the pat on the back comes afterward.

    Now, I am not saying every idea is a good idea or that your idea won't be opposed. But to a visionary, a pat on the back is a reinforcement and even a ridicule is also a reinforcement.

    The former is a positive reinforcement and the latter is a negative reinforcement. A visionary uses both as a stepping stone towards the ultimate goal. Are you a person of vision?

    #6. You are unsure of victory.

    If you are waiting to see signs of victory before you validate your championship, you are already one step of the league. That's not the way to go.

    It all begins in the mind. It is very important you master this principle. If you can't see it, you can't have it. You have to believe you are victorious and a champion, then you will begin to see signs.

    How does this work?

    This is called "The law of attraction." 

    Negative thoughts creates negative energy and attracts negative experiences. Positive thoughts creates positive energy and attracts positive experiences.

    I have written about this law several times on this blog, and my social media channels. I have even had the privilege to speak to people about them on some platforms. But it seems only few people fully absorb this principle.

    This is because very few apply it consistently. A principle is not something you try once and forget about it. It must be applied continuously for you to absorb the underlying results. You have to do this until it becomes a natural extension of your character.

    There are some persons who find it easy to smile when under pressure. It didn't just happen it was consistent practice of the response to a pressing situation consciously or unconsciously that made it become a habit.

    Develop a"victory mindset" because there are many things on your way that will look like defeat in disguise but with a "victory mindset" you win be able to discern and move through successfully even when it seems difficult.

    #7. You see success as a means to validate yourself.

    I have touched lightly on this on my fifth point. Some persons say "success is the best revenge." I believe this quote is in a context and should not be generalised. What happens if there's nothing to avenge?

    The issue here is that you will begin to see achievements as a means to prove a point.

    A lion doesn't hunt down other animals to prove that it is the king of the jungle. No! It actually hunts down those animals because it has the inner instinct that it is a king, and should express that.

    Let me illustrate with the art of singing. 

    Let's imagine a singer named Tara wins a Grammy award and she writes in her diary, "I won a Grammy today, so I am now a world class singer."

    In this case, the possession of that award made her the world class singer.

    What happens if she never get to win a Grammy all through her life? Does that mean she would never see herself as a world-class singer?

    The best way to go would be: "I am a world class singer and I got a Grammy today."

    What I want to show you is that the value is not on the award, it's actually on her.

    In life, the value is not on the achievement, success or recognition, the value is on YOU.

    This is because you have it embedded in you and it was properly expressed. This is what will keep you going when you can't afford the car of your choice or house of your choice, yet, without feeling intimated.

    You will no longer play victim, you will take responsibility for your goals, dreams and vision.

    If you noticed, all I mentioned above centers around YOU and the need for you to develop the right perspective in certain areas.  I implore you to troubleshoot with this post as a guideline.

    3 Facts You Don't Know that Can Make You Rich

    Guest post by Okon Joseph

    Passive income, make money, financial freedom

    I thought long and hard enough about sharing some fact on making money or becoming rich because I see so many people in their day to day life still running around struggling to make money through a system that they were told would make them financially free.

    I know millions of people have lost their jobs, happiness and even money on the ground of trying to get rich using an old system that once worked in the past.

    We are experiencing one of the most financial crisis and economic changes in history. What works 3 years ago, has changed today. What may be true about the principles of getting rich has also changed today.

    I decided to write about 3 common facts that were once true decades ago but false now due to the changes in the financial sector. I want us to get informed and understand that these 3 facts about making money can make you rich faster in this present economy.

    Years ago, I was once with the majority who believed that to become rich one need to;

    1. Work in a high paying job. 
    2. Save 10% of your income monthly. 
    3. Invest in shares of a good company.
    Yes, these principles may have worked with our fore-fathers and dead mentors, but it does not work these days. It did not work for me because as far as I know, it is the slowest means to getting rich.

    I struggled for years until I found out these true facts, applied it into my life and business and within 6 months my income and net worth increase 5X.

    Here are the 3 facts that made me move from being an average Joe to a rich Joe


    Fact #1: You don't get Rich by Saving

    Like I earlier wrote, we were once told to save our way to financial freedom. But let me ask you, how many people do you know that became rich by saving 10% of his/her income monthly in this 21st century?

    I don't know of any. I do read books written by millionaires and none of them attributed a rule of making money to saving 10% monthly.

    Who Really Saves 10% Monthly?

    I don't!

    Do you? I don't think so or maybe you do. I give 10% of my income to God. 
    Brethren, saving 10% monthly won't make you rich. That's old school. Stop reading those motivational books written by people who also read same motivational books written in the 80's when money still had value.

    Imagine how much you make a month. Remove 10% from it. How long would you have to save 10% to acquire that asset or invest in that investment plan?

    In today's economy, you can't save 10% monthly to a millionaire status. You want to be a millionaire by 50 does not mean you have to wait till you hit 50.

    When I want to save to acquire an item (asset or luxury). I first seek to know how much it cost. Then I will fix a deadline and then plan how much I need to remove from my income so as to meet that set date.

    The journey to become a millionaire begins with a step doesn't mean I will trek to get there.

    Will you continue to save 10% monthly or you will be aggressive towards hitting your goals?

    The best formula is, save for investment, and don't save to save. Save your money because you want to invest not because you just want to keep it in a saving account. People don't get rich with savings account.


    Fact #2: If You're not Making Enough Money, You're not Adding Enough Value

    Surprise? I bet you're!

    But the fact is, nothing can change it. Okay, let me make it easy for you. If you're not making enough money, you're not helping enough people.

    Successful people are those who can find ways to add value in some way to a person or create something of value for others. A dentist who takes away pain is adding value.

    Always ask yourself this question, "why should someone give me money?" and give yourself a candid answer to that question. The bigger your value the more money you will attract to yourself.

    You make money from the help you provide other people with. As a freelance writer, I make more money when I write more. The more articles or blog post I write, the more money I make. I am helping busy online entrepreneurs create content so they can focus on more important stuffs. I add value by giving them informative content on their blogs so their audience benefit and also help increase subscription list.

    What value are you adding? Who are you helping to make his life, business, and relationship, health better with your service or product?


    Fact #3: There is no Secret Formula to Making Money

    Making money is no longer a secret because it's all over goggle. So how is it a secret? Making money is very easy depending on how you want to make it all the rest of your life.

    I repeat again, there is no secret of making money. Buy a product for $10, sell it for $15, you have made money. Help someone with writing an article for $5, you have made money. Sell an handmade product to as many people that you can sell to, you have made money.

    These are the facts that I have kept within me which elevated me and my business. Write the fact down on a paper, read it to yourself every morning before going out and at night before you sleep. I promise it will make wonders in your life and bank account.

    See you at the bank!

    7 Expert Entrepeneurs Reveal How to Build a Business Around Your Passion

    passion, profit, business,

    A good number of persons like you have certain things you are passionate about and also looking forward to make money out it. 

    If you are reading this post this moment, I believe it's because you want to learn more on how to build a business around your passion.

    So I reached out and contacted some top entrepreneurs in different industries with a good track record of success to share with us secrets they discovered would have made a difference for any entrepreneur just starting out.

    I am glad most of them of them responded. You can be sure of getting classified information from their wealth of experience.

    I asked everyone on the list one question and here it is:

    "What is the one advice you would give to someone starting out newly on building a business around passion (based on your past mistake)?"

    I encourage you to go through what each expert entrepreneur has shared. You don't have to make the same mistake. They have distinctively shared their minds with no reservations.

    Take note that this post has tips and timeless secrets that will surely improve the way you approach your business as an entrepreneur. These entrepreneurs are very successful and have genuinely shared with us those things that will prevent you from making unnecessary mistakes.

    Please take your time, go through each section and read between the lines.

    NB: I have listed these entrepreneurs responses in no particular order.

    #1- Victor Bassey of Highly Paid Experts Network

    Founder of the highly paid experts networkMy advice would be to take the following four steps:

    First, do everything possible to position yourself as an authority in your field of passion. 

    Everything starts with this step. Without it you will not go very far.

    Secondly, launch the right products at the right time. Positioning yourself as an authority will bring a lot of people your way. You've got to have something to offer them when they show up at your door.

    Thirdly, attract and keep high value clients. This is particularly important for your commercial success

    Lastly, nurture rapid growth and high performance with carefully thought out personal and business success systems. This will ensure that your success is grounded in real and not imagined potential.

    These things are the only four thing to consider when building a business around your passion. Everything else is a subset of these four.

    Victor Bassey is the founder of  The Highly Paid Experts Network. He helps entrepreneurs become high profile, highly paid persons of influence in their field.

    #2- Dayo Samuel of Audacity2Lead

    Founder, Audacity2Lead Podcast
    One advice could be tricky, but here's something that would help. 
    Get a coach. You won't want to spend so many months figuring your way yourself.  You don't have 100 years to grow a yard. 

    With someone to hold your hand, asides the clarity a coach provides, he would hold you accountable, and that's gold on its own.

    Back to building a business around passion; passion will never pay you. In fact, people won't buy your passion. 

    They'll buy your products, services and programs instead. So while you're starting, learn to develop those products appropriate to your market.

    If you are having issues charging money for what you do, a coach again, helps you unmask that fear, take away the sabotaging beliefs you have.

    #3 - Toluse Francis of  Tolu Francis

    One thing that is important for every start up is not to expect so much but again expect many things.

    I remember when I started out, I was hoping people would come round me and ask for my help all the time. 

    In distant time I discovered that the marketplace is crowded and I must decide myself what I want to do and how I want to do.

    I sat down one day and asked myself what exactly I wanted to do with my knowledge and field. With a degree in Biochemistry and training in Mental Health and Human Nutrition, I knew I had to be decisive. 

    In view of this, I tried out different aspects of health. I started with Cancer write-ups on my blog and then later moved to general health. 

    But my Eureka moment came the day I wrote about Weight gain and Weight Loss. I realised lots of people had questions to ask and of course it looked lucrative but I wasn’t so comfortable as there were many people in the field already and everyone had become a weight loss Pro. 

    I then decided to be the Health and Wellness Expert. In view of this, I am the guy you contact for prevention and not for correction. Today, I have been able to marry diets with mental health.
    Toluse Francis is a writer and public speaker. He helps people eat healthy. He walks and works with them towards achieving a healthy eating lifestyle.


    #4 - Temi Ashabi Ajibewa of Temi Ashabi

    Street-Smart Bootstrapper
    As an entrepreneur, there's one thing I wish I had been told/taught much earlier. Or should I say one thing I wish I had become aware of earlier in my business. 

    This is the need for me to take deliberate DAILY steps towards achieving my goals. It is not enough to make goals or to even write them down. There has to be a 'running' of these goals without which they will not be worth more than the paper on which they are written on.

    As an entrepreneur, you must make it a point of duty to re-visit your goals DAILY and set out DAILY activities that will get you closer to achieving these goals.

    Breaking down your yearly goals into monthly and daily milestones takes out the enormity or impossibility appearance they may have. It breaks it down in piece-meal and therefore easier to achieve. After all, isn't it said that "little drops of water make a mighty ocean?"

    The first month I employed this approach to my goals, I recorded over 40 percent success of my yearly goals in that one month! Needless to say, I had to go and times my goals by 10 because I suddenly had this invincible and everything-is-possible mindset.

    I kept wishing I had done this much earlier in my over 10 years entrepreneurial journey. Experience is the best teacher but you don't have to go through that heart-ache yourself so learn from mine.

    Temi Ashabi Ajibewa is a business and personal finance coach who helps upwardly mobile individuals to start, grow and profit from their businesses. She's passionate about bootstrapping housewives, unfulfilled employed individuals and frustrated business owners to maximise their potentials to achieve optimum profit.


    #5- Remi Owadokun of TotalMakeOverProgram

    TmpAcademy, TotalmakeoverprogramI would recommend firstly that the individual certifies that what he or she is experiencing is truly passion. Be certain, that it is not excitement. Be certain of your true motivation, because it is a thin line.
    It is easy to confuse passion for something else. People sometimes think they are passionate, until there is fuel scarcity, or their business does not yield any results when expected. Then they look for something else to be "passionate" about. This is not passion.

    Now once the individual is certain he or she is truly passionate about something that they can turn into a business, I encourage the individual to try. You never know until you try, the good thing about building a business around something you are passionate about is, you are constantly innovating and looking for ways to make it work. You wake up thinking about it, talk about it, sleep on it.

    Remi Owadokun is a Certified Health Coach from the biggest Nutrition School in the world, Institute of Integrative Nutrition.

    Career Emplyability Talk
    To build a business around your passion is good but you would need more than passion to be successful. You need to add knowledge and market place intelligence to your passion.

    You will need to ask critical questions. Is the market willing to pay for my passion? When is the time the market would be ready? How much can they pay? 

    What time would the market be set? How will my passion be packaged before taking it to the market?

    #7 - Esohe Igbinoba of Global Brand Network

    Founder, The Global Brand Network.
    Well If I’m to look back on my journey as Founder, The Global Brand Network, running an online community and building a coaching and consulting business…I’ll say HIRE A PROVEN COACH from the onset. 

    It may be a bit expensive, but trust me the transformation you would encounter and the acceleration your business would experience would be more than worth your investment.

    Secondly, build and leverage relationships. As a young thought leader or expert trying to build brand awareness around who you are and what you do, alongside a profitable online/offline business, YOU NEED PEOPLE. 

    No matter how smart you are, you need the expertise and experience of others. There are competencies you have no business acquiring like legal consultancy, business accounting, branding, business strategy, social media strategy, etc. 

    As you need these services, find people in your network who can do it for free or at a discount based on their relationship with you. It will reduce your overhead cost and give you the necessary support you need to fast-track the “seeding” period of your business.

    The seeding period is the time you invest a lot and reap little or nothing. This is the period where you put yourself out there, giving out free content and services. To be able to build your Know, Like and Trust factor.

    Lastly, find a TEAM. A small group of people who believe in your vision and can help you achieve your goals on a low budget or based on value exchange. These folks can benefit from your services, experience, relationships and in exchange they render their services to you.

    If you start out with a proven coach, a support system, and a core team, you will grow faster and build and sustain a profitable global brand.
