AMERIOR SUNDAY E. & OLUWAFEMI TEMITOPE
Successful men go through a lot of experiences; man in his journey to success is prone to challenges, difficulties and trials.
Man is created with potentials to succeed by his creator, but the road to success is characterized by different obstacles and it is always under construction.
In the race of life, challenges are inevitable, but your will to succeed makes you look ahead of those challenges. A focus mind sees every obstacle as a stepping stone to success.
Understand that without the tunnel of fire, Gold cannot be valuable, that is it true value. GOLD! When raw, is shapeless and undesirable.
The beauty of gold is not visible not until it goes through hot channel, through fire and hard-beating by the goldsmith, at the end of all this, the raw gold becomes a shining and valuable item.
So also is the life of a dreamer who wants to go beyond dreaming and becoming a Goal Getter. A dreamer is a person who set goals. When you never take a step to achieve the set goals, then you will remain a dreamer.
Understand that you can proceed from being a dreamer to a goal getter. You can become a triumphant if you take that step of ignition to go get your goal. In achieving success, it takes a focused mind to overcome the inevitable challenges.
Triumphant after the tunnel draws a picture of victory after some moments of hardships, difficulties and trials. Tunnel here is characterized by the presence of difficulties, hardship and trials. Understand that there is always a light after the tunnel certainly for those who pursue the light with Passion, Determination, Perseverance and The Hope of light at the end of tunnel.
Therefore, to every youth who has a goal, vision and dream to pursue, understand that your journey to success represents this tunnel, because the journey to success is not as smooth and easy as it appears. But if your dreams, goals or visions are pursued with passion, determination and perseverance, you will be transformed from being just a dreamer to a goal getter. That is to let you know that there is always a victory after the tunnel for those who believe.
You should know that whatever hardship, difficulties or situation you are going through now is your tunnel in life – your road to success. You should believe that you can become a triumphant after going through this tunnel.
Never give up! Successful people don’t do that.
Click on your dreams and Believe you can make it.
The road to success (tunnel of life) is rough and tough as it is characterized by fear, pessimist, negative reactions from friends and family, distractions and obstructions. Etc. but if you travel through the tunnel of life equipped with passion for your goal, determination and a persevering spirit, then you would become a triumphant after your tunnel. Do not be deceived by the pleasure of relaxation when you needed to be working, it is very important.
Today, I say to you never give up on your dreams because, Dreams are like stars, when followed diligently, they could lead you to your greatness.
You shall be called success.
With PASSION, DETERMINATION AND PERSEVERANCE (P.D.P) becoming a Triumphant is sure.

Embrace a positive mind-set, move on and never hold on to your past mistakes, when they say you can not, tell them you can.

WELCOME TO JULY 2016
Your MONTH of great accomplishment. – TMF
“Suddenly, There was a change of plans.
There was a change of goals orientation.
There was a change in my objectives.
There was a change in my targets.
There was a change of dreams.
There was a different between who I was and who I am.
There was a change in my attitude, it moved from wrong to right.
I moved from being a pessimist to an optimist, Positive thinking became one of my make up characteristics.
Success became a must for me and not an option.
I discovered my essence.
I knew why I was born.
My consciousness was awoken and now I am in charge.
I saw excellence as a part of me.
I perceived the new air, the new life and breath.
I moved from purposeless to purposeful so as to give life to the lifeless.
I moved from vision-less to a visionary being.” As he narrated.
He is a friend and a brother to me (actually from another mother). I met Amerior Sunday Emmanuel. in the University; we became friends, share talks and ideas. During the course of our discussion, he gave me this testimony about himself. Today, he is a member of this initiative, a mind changing Writer and Speaker. One of his upcoming write-ups is Triumphant after the Tunnel. A work I was opportune to contribute to. However, anticipate this write up; it’s a must to read.
However, he continued, “At fifteen (15), I wasn’t who I was now, I wasn’t awakened, as I was deep asleep in the potentiary world. My essence wasn’t revealed to me. Who I was and who I want to be was not my priority. However my friend, it’s a pitiful life. A life that lacks future productivity.”
Oh! What a CHANGE.
Change is an inevitable process in a human’s life. From time to time, individuals experience certain change in their lives, some biological scholars said “Change Is Natural”, but that’s the structural, functional and organic aspect of human.
However, as a speaker, I came to understand that there are various changes that could occur in an individual’s life but are not natural, these changes happen when certain level of consciousness is been awoken by one self. This change is self made thing. We can call it “Self Discovery”, the first step to becoming a Goal Getter.
Change in Attitude
Change in Mindset
Change in Ideas and innovations.
Powerful transformation of whole self consciousness
A change from being a baby dreamer to an achiever.
A change from “I CAN’T” attitude to “I CAN” attitude.
A change from being a “GOAL SETTER” to a “GOAL GETTER”
A change of nationality to the potentiary world, a citizenship that is acquired by new self birth. A new breath of hope, new dreams and goals are perceived, a new reason for living is created and the zeal to succeed is awakened.
Are you asleep in the world of potentials? This is the change you need. Provoke that spirit of excellence in you and be determined to succeed. Don’t settle for good, never rest for better but rather project towards excellence. A lot have been deposited in you by God, you are not just an ordinary being because you are extraordinary created by your creator. All you need do is to discover your essence, provoke your extraordinary spirit to function. It’s like a miracle, things beyond your own imagination that you could do. You have been given the power and ability to perform beyond expectation. Now is the CHANGE time. You are who you say you are, that is why a change of attitude and thinking is important.
If you don’t have answers to these questions yet, then you are ripe for that CHANGE.
You need to ask yourself questions like:
- Why am I CREATED?
- Why am I BORN?
- What is my ESSENCE and PURPOSE?
- Who am I?
- How many lives have I TOUCHED?
- Is my LIGHT UNDER COVER?
- Will others see through my light?
- What will I be known for?
- What will be my impact on Earth?
- Do I have the I CAN attitude?
- What is that thing that DRIVES me?
Do you find yourself meditating on these questions? Then your change time is now. The process of getting answers to these questions is the power filled and mind opening process of CHANGE.
This is the CHANGE you need and Today is the Right time, don’t procrastinate, let others see through your light, but you can only put that light on when you discover yourself.

It is not your fault that you fall, but it becomes your fault if you do not rise. It is your choice.
Failure is inevitable, but not to give up is a choice.
I once said to my friend: “To give up is not an option for me, because i will never give up on my dreams.” That’s the choice i have made.
I have Chosen to be a WINNER.
I have chosen to write my life’s story in greatness and accomplishment of destiny.
I have chosen to be a winner in my marriage.
I have chosen to be a winner in my business,

You as a chooser and writer of own destiny,
WHAT HAVE YOU CHOSEN?.
Sometimes in life, the right things happen at the wrong time, while sometimes, the wrong result are gotten at the right time.
But your attitude towards these happenings could make them yield the best result. In other words, change your attitude towards life.
Positive mindset equals positive result. How?

How will you write your story?
Every human is a story writer.
Man is the writer of his own story. How do you want to tell your story? How do you want it to be told?
The decisions you make today have a reflection on your tomorrow’s story.
You are never a victim. Understand that whatever you choose to do in the next three weeks can make you a great individual, do you also know that whatever you do in the next three weeks can make you a failure? Yes! How do you want to write your story?
What happens to you in life does not really matter, what matters is how you react to that situation.
You are the writer of your own future.
Your destiny lies in your own hands.
This is a story of a man who wants to know how his future will look like.
There was a man who visited an herbalist to know what his destiny will look like.
This is their conversation.
Man: baba, i want to know my destiny, i mean my future.
Herbalist: my son, what is it about your future you want to know?
Man: baba, i want to know if my destiny will be bright. I want to know if i have a bright future.
Herbalist: hmmm, my son thats thoughtful of you, but you shall go and come back in seven days so i would have made the preparations.
Man: okay baba, i will be here in seven days.
Seven days later…
Herbalist: welcome my son.
Man: thank you baba, so have you check? Will i have a bright destiny?
Herbalist: come! Seat here my son.
The herbalist brought out a millipede and two chalks(black and white).
The herbalist did something practical. What did he do? He drew a circle with the white chalk and also with the black chalk.
Man: baba what is this?
Herbalist: listen my son, this millipede here represents your destiny, if it walks into the black chalk circle, this means your destiny is a dark one without light, but if it walks into the white chalk circle, it means you have a bright future, a destiny full of light. So be patient and watch.
The herbalist droped the millipede which he picked from calabash.
The millipede was moving while the man was watching, the millipede started moving towards the dark circle, almost in the black circle, suddenly, the man picked up the millipede and droped it into the white chalked circle. (what! What a self made destiny, i mean a self written destiny).
Herbalist: (with surprise) son, why did you do that? You shouldn’t have touched the millipede.
Man: i did because my destiny lies in my hand. I will be blamed if i let it go dark. In me lies the power to make it what i choose to. My decisions are reflections of what my future will look like. So baba, i have chosen to write a great story of my life.
So as every individuals, Your destiny lies in your hands. You are the writer of your own life story.

What are dreams?
What is greatness?
What is the nexus between one’s dreams and one’s greatness?
These are the questions that come to one’s heart when the topic Dreams – An index to one’s greatness comes in. There are visions, missions and aspirations of what to accomplish or fulfill in the nearest future as contrast one’s current position, that is if you have one.
Every man’s achievement is based on his earlier perceived vision about it. I call it imagination. Imagination is the preview of life’s coming attraction.
Back to the question – What are Dreams?
A dream is am imparted picture of a great future that one have in his heart, dreams are imparted picture of the future. A dream becomes a dream when one is determined or possesses the mind set of achieving that which he had imagined.
Dreams are imaginations of a great future – an imaginary picture of one’s tomorrow.
Your tomorrow is shaped by the kind of dreams or imaginations you have today.
When you dream BIG, when you Imagine BIG, when you have this BIG vision – you will surly become BIG.
Meaning, when you dream of Being In Greatness, you will surely Be In Greatness. Yes! Only with determination.
Your imagination with a close determination will take you to your desired destination.
Having understood what dreams are, let’s proceed to know what greatness is.
Greatness is the reward to every determined, dedicated and diligent dream follower. Greatness is relative to success. Greatness is to be the best among your kinsmen, greatness is to attain certain height in one’s life time. Finally greatness is like a destination.
One thing one should understand about greatness is that you cannot get to a destination without knowing it.
Many things are involved in becoming great in life. Greatness don’t just happen, yes we are born to be great but greatness is not known to be ready-made. it involves a lot.
- You need to imagine that which you want to become.
- Draw a picture of your desired future in your heart
- Work toward achieving that which you have imagined and be focus
- Dedicate yourself and time to achieving your dreams
Surely, you will get to your destination which is your greatness.
My question is what connects one’s dreams and greatness?
What is the nexus between one’s dream and greatness?
Many youths today don’t have a dream, they are following a path without knowing where they are heading to. In other words, they are on a journey without a destination.
As a youth, you should have a destination – a place you are heading to in life because when you see it, God will give it.
Be a vision driven youth, because you cannot get what you don’t want.
Understand that it is only a known destination that can be reached.
Your dreams or imagination will always take you to greatness, not just by mere dreaming it or imagining it but by acting towards achieving it.
Let your imaginations, dreams and goals get married with determination and you shall give birth to fulfillment.
Do you know that you can achieve whatever you have as your dream or whatever youhave imagined?
Your dreams or imaginations are your index to greatness – that is why I say a man’s dream is an index to his greatness.
Dreams are like stars…you may never touch them but if you follow them, they will take you to your destiny.
You must know the importance of dreams and imaginations. Because to accomplish great things, we must not only act but also dream, not only plan but also believe.
The importance of imaginations and dreams is also seen in Albert Einstein quote. He said
“Imagination encompasses of everything, it is the preview of life’s coming attraction”. (Emphasis added).
One thing one should understand is that without a dram, an imagination or goal there is no greatness, there is no accomplishment. Because when you dream it, you will have it.
Good imagination is the framework of every great man’s achievement.
Know that you can achieve whatever you have imagined. How?
You keep your dreams alive – understand that to achieve anything requires faith. Believe in yourself, have vision, be hardworking, have determination and self-dedication. Remember all things are possible for those who believe.
Also, remember with GOD all things are possible.
