Ladies & Gentlemen, join me to make welcome @WaleTejumade , our very first guest on #ListenUpNG 2017! https://t.co/frBhn29hcf

1. Let me start by thanking the host of this session, @kemiodutayo for the honors of having me here. #ListenUpNG

2. To avoid any misconception, I should add at this juncture that the theme for the session doesn’t imply being an Entrepreneur. #ListenUpNG

3. In other words, the theme seeks to let you understand how you can take charge and lead your own life. #ListenUpNG

4. One of the most prevalent challenges an average Nigerian Youth faces is that of IDENTITY. #ListenUpNG

5. By this, I simply mean the ability to understand one’s uniqueness and become distinctive in a world where everyone does what everyone does. #ListenUpNG

6. People tend to move or gravitate towards whatever is “trending”. The quest for originality has been jettisoned. #ListenUpNG

7. Another fundamental reality confronting an average Nigerian is the “indebtedness mentality”…… #ListenUpNG

8. Our society has shaped us to believing that people owe us the quality of life we live. #ListenUpNG

9. This deadly and destiny crushing mentality makes us believe that the Govt, our Parents, Friends, Bosses and even Enemies…/2 #ListenUpNG

10. ..2/2 are the ones to be held responsible for whatever state of life we are or the outcomes of the experiences of our past. #ListenUpNG

11. It’s the reason y we have so many Champions living as Losers, Success living as Failures and Millionaires living as a Pauper #ListenUpNG

11b. We then repeatedly and habitually blame everyone for the quality of our lives but ourselves. #ListenUpNG

12. Friends, if you operate in any of the aforementioned mindsets (see tweets 4&7), you cannot become the CEO of your life! #ListenUpNG

13. Simply put, until you begin to take responsibility for the outcomes of your life, you cannot lead your life. #ListenUpNG

14. Understand this today; NO ONE OWES YOU ANYTHING IN LIFE! You owe yourself the precious gift of YOU! #ListenUpNG

15. The day you begin to CONSCIOUSLY take responsibility for your life, you’d begin to live your true essence. #ListenUpNG

16. In your quest to becoming the CEO of your life, you must have the mindset and qualities of a good CEO….. /2 #ListenUpNG

17. …2/2 ……this is extremely important because no one can give what he or she does not have. #ListenUpNG

18. Again, I should let you know that you cannot lead a life that you do not believe in! #ListenUpNG

20. U don’t need the world to believe in U b4 you begin to live the life of your dream. You need God and you to believe YOU! #ListenUpNG

21. You cannot live the life you cannot see. #Vision #ListenUpNG

22. Keys to becoming the CEO of your life. 1. Know who you are. The world will step aside for the one who knows where he’s going #ListenUpNG

23. 2. Be mindful of your association. Move with those who challenge you, not those who make you feel like a king/queen… #ListenUpNG

24…..2/2…If you always feel like the Don in the midst of your friends, it may be time for you to “port”! #ListenUpNG

25. 3. Delete your “indebtedness mentality”. Begin to be responsible for your actions. Blame no one anymore…/2 #ListenUpNG

26….2/2….As earlier stated, you’d be seen to be ready for greatness when you know you are responsible for your life #ListenUpNG

27. 3. Don’t be fooled, you need God to become all that He created you for. #ListenUpNG

28. Don’t let anyone make you feel loving or serving God is old fashion. Make your God famous! #ListenUpNG

29. 4. Don’t be afraid to fail or make mistakes. If you don’t try, you’d never know what you are capable of. #ListenUpNG

30. 5. Be consistent, disciplined and focused. You can achieve as much as your eyes can see. #ListenUpNG

31. Make sure the life you live is that of your choosing. One that you’d be proud of. #ListenUpNG

32. #TakeTheLead in the matters of your life. Call the shots. Become the CEO of your own life! You can. You must. You will. #ListenUpNG

33. Thank you again for having me @KemiOdutayo. Keep up the good works. God bless you and yours richly. Loftier Heights! #ListenUpNG
