Moments of Discovery with Ik Anyanwu: Comments on Entrepreneurship


Everyone knows that the youths of today are more exposed than their kinds of yesterdays. We should therefore stop seeing our youths as unenlightened or ignorant.
I  would be organizing more Seminar/ training like so that people can start playing significant roles to save our future by engaging in entrepreneurship skills via  making use of their God given talents. Leave a purposeful and meaningful life not just existing to “pay rent”. We are all part of this universe and it’s about time someone takes up his/her microphone on the life stage and sing out his/her song. Each one of us have a song. And  to  play significant roles to save our future.

SINGS: “ No one else can preach your sermon. No one can else,  can sing your song.
No one else can do what God has chosen you to do. Your gift were given from above. Your Blessings from the father love so use your gift to the glory of God.” 
In preparing this talk,  I have tried not to appear political, academical but to be a life coach. This is because I  know there are speakers that are more suited for that purpose than myself.  I am an exceptional person; my orientation cannot be well captured by mere rhetoric or theories but to share with you from my orientations and beliefs – based on my own personal experiences and interactions at each stage in life.
We have been around and also seen a lot but the truth is that things have not always been easy.    I have also suffered, sacrificed and benefited.  Everyone should sacrifice in order to reap a bounty harvest thereafter. This does not speak of selling your body or selling your soul to the devil in quest to make money. Several other things contributed in shaping my personality/ life today.  I have lived and believed it. And this is what has helped me in life:  – the firm believe that my onw destiny lies in my own hands
 I know everyone can attain greatness in life. Anyone can become an entrepreneur. The problem is do you believe that you can? Are you prepared to take the bold steps required? This are questions only you can answer.  Yes it all begins from your mind, what do you see?
Before I proceed, Please permit me to Share with you quote from OMELETO [Video Plays]
Its not death that most people are scared of. It is getting to the end of life  only to discover that you never truly lived.
There was a study done of 130 elderly people on their sick bed. facing death, close to their last breath. They were asked to reflect about their life\’s biggest regret. Nearly all of them said, they regretted not the things they did but the things they didn\’t do. The risks they never took. The dreams they didn\’t pursue. I ask you “would your last words be?  \” If only I had…\”
Hey you …\”WAKE UP\” why do you exist. Life is not meant to simply work wait for the weekend and pay rent. I dont know much but I know this, everybody in this world has a gift. And I apologize to the black community. But I can no longer pretend. Martin Luther King? That man never had a dream. THAT DREAM HAD HIM. People don’t choose dreams. Dreams chose them. So the question am getting to is do you have the courage to grab the dream that picked you? That befits you and grips you or will you let it get away and slip through.
You know I learnt a fact about airplane the other day. Now this was so surprising. I was talking to a pilot and he told me that many of his passengers think planes are dangerous to fly in but he said it is more dangerous for plane to stay on the ground. I said, \”What? Like, how does that sound?\’ well he said because on the ground the plane starts to RUST, MALFUNCTION and WEAR out more faster that it ever would if it was in the air. As I walked away, I thought \”yeah makes total sense\” because Planes were built to live in the skies. And every person was built to live out the dream they have inside. So it is, perhaps the saddest loss to live the life on the ground without ever taking off.
See must of us are afraid of the thief that comes in the night to steal our things. But there is a thief in your mind who is after your dreams.  His name is doubt. keep doubt away. Because he is wanted for murder. For he has killed more dreams than failure ever did. He wears many disguises and like a virus, will leave you blinded, divided and turn you into a \”kinda\”. See Kinda is lethal, You know what a kinda is , there is a lot of kinda people. You kinda want a career change. You kinda want to get straight As. You kinda want to get in shape. It\’s a simple match no numbers to crunch. If you kinda want something. then you will kinda gwt the results you want.
What is your dream? What ignites that spark? You can\’t kinda want that. You gotta want it with every part of your whole heart. Will you struggle? Yeah, yeah. You will struggle. No way around it. You will fall many times but who is counting. Just remember there is no such thing as a smooth mountain. If you want to make it to the top then there are sharp ridges that must be stepped over. There will be times you get stressed and things you get depressed over but let me tell you something:
 Steven Spielberg was rejected from film school three times. Three times, but he kept going.
The television executives fired Oprah Winfred that she wasn’t fit for TV but she kept going.
 critics told Beyonce that she couldn\’t sing. She went through depression but she kept going. STRUGGLE & CTITICISM are prerequisite for greatness. That is the law of this universe and no one escapes it. Because pain is life. But you can choose what type. Either the pain on the road to success or the pain of being haunted with regret.
Do you want my advice, don’t think twice. We have all been given a gift and that is called life so don\’t blow it. You are not defined by your past. Instead, you are born anew in each moment. So own it NOW. Sometimes you got to leap and grow your wings on the way down. You better get the show off before the clock runs out. Because is no overtime in life. No do over and I know I sound like I\’m preaching or speaking with force But if you don’t use your gift, you sell not only yourself but the whole world. So what invention do you have buried in your mind. What idea, what cure, what skill do you have inside to bring out to this universe? Uni = One Verse= Song. You have a part to play in this song. So grasp that microphone and be brave. Sing your heart out on life\’s stage. You can not go back and make a brand new beginning.  But you can start now and make a brand new ending.”  …..unquote Omelote

I strongly believe in what Omelote said  \”You cannot go back and make a brand new beginning. But you can start now and make a brand new ending\”
