Akiroq Brost
Find your purpose by following your passion. Whatever you are passionate about, explore that. Make time to do that. Incorporate it into your schedule and life. Allow yourself to live in your passion. I am a firm believer that your purpose lies in your passion. Dedicate time each and every day to what you love, to what you are passionate about. Give it time. Let it evolve. Let it grow. Find a path there. Find where it leads. Find your purpose. What could be more fulfilling than pursuing your passions every day? What a beautiful purpose in of itself that would be. Follow your heart. - Akiroq

If you're trapped in a cage, you don't want to start being grateful for the protection of the bars. You need to be grateful that there are gaps in between them so you can see what's on the other side.
Beth Kempton
We aren't either afraid or brave, we're usually both.
Beth Kempton

Beth Kempton
Escape is a process, not a pill.
Beth Kempton
In finding the courage and confidence to escape our cages and shine, we help others do the same.
Beth Kempton
Liberty is about being free and is granted by laws and conventions and government permissions. Freedom is about feeling free, and the only permission you need for that is your own.
Beth Kempton
The journey of the Freedom Seeker isn't always easy. But it is essential, and it is urgent, for it is the path to coming alive again.
Beth Kempton
If you can choose your way into a cage, you can choose your way out.

Beth Kempton
I am a Freedom Seeker, willing and able to choose my own path.
Beth Kempton
Freedom is found within, in the shape of our laughter and the way we love, in the truths that we live by and the stories we become
Beth Kempton
Deep down we all know that freedom is a choice, yet so many of us don't feel that truth.
Beth Kempton
We often build our lives in a way that shuts out freedom.
Beth Kempton
We all have the innate capacity to feel free.

Donald Van de Mark
Your life is a trajectory. Every choice you make alters that trajectory, in a positive or negative way. Will you categorize that dinner with friends as a business expense? Will you be honest with your daughter? Will you take more credit than you're due? These are just the small questions that we face every day, and little by little, the answers influence the trajectory of our lives and beings.

We Person-Centred Approach people are as human as anyone else after all, and, as does everyone, must daily face the difference between our aspirations and stated values, and our actual choices and behaviours, and the resulting outcomes.

How we choose to deal with pain is ultimately the measure of who we are and of the success we have in closing our gaps.
Idowu Koyenikan
Let your creative and imaginative mind run freely; it will take you places you never dreamed of and provide breakthroughs that others once thought were impossible.
Idowu Koyenikan
But if you forgive someone for something they did to you, it doesn't mean you agree with what they did or believe it was right. Forgiving that person means you have chosen not to dwell on the matter anymore; you have moved on with your life.
Idowu Koyenikan
When you work on something that only has the capacity to make you 5 dollars, it does not matter how much harder you work
Idowu Koyenikan

What happens when a leader misses his steps on the ladder is what happens when a train misses the rail. Be on track.
Israelmore Ayivor
Never allow your limitations to tie you down for failure to whip.
Israelmore Ayivor
The public personality of a leader is not what really matters. What he does out of the open stage really tells more about him than anything else.
Israelmore Ayivor
The more you express your skills, the more experienced you become and the closer you get to excellence.
Israelmore Ayivor
If you fail, you will be sad. But if you quit, you will be mad. Don't give up on your dreams. Get up. You can do it!
Israelmore Ayivor
Leaders decorate the world; character is their paint. They live exemplary life and make the world better than they found it.
Israelmore Ayivor
You can't gather much if you won't go on risk expedition. Leaders never fear the thorns; they'll still go in for the beautiful roses no matter the number of pricks they'll get.
Israelmore Ayivor
There are three categories of people exist in the world; the wanters, the wishers and the makers.
Israelmore Ayivor
Grow your talents and skills through a consistent practice and progressive learning. Learn to relearn and unlearn. Raise the bar for yourself always.
Israelmore Ayivor
Leaders are lovers of change. Without change, growth is static. To lead, you have to appreciate change; else change will depreciate you!
Israelmore Ayivor
Leaders should know how fast time runs and how faster they can beat it. Poor leaders run slowly till time overtakes them.
Israelmore Ayivor
Environment has its own ways of limiting us tightly. But leaders have their own ways of escaping those limitations narrowly.
Israelmore Ayivor
Your skills will aid you to define your brand. Your brand determines who leads you and who you lead.
Israelmore Ayivor
To know if someone can speak offensively or politely, don't give him poem to recite; don't give him a song to sing. Just engage him in an argument and you will know it for yourself who he is.
Israelmore Ayivor
A leader isn't born after 9 months' conception. When talents are discovered, skills are mastered & values are developed, a leader is born.
Israelmore Ayivor
Between a plan and it's achievement is a leader in the middle. With his one arm he makes the plan. With the other one he carries them through.
Israelmore Ayivor
Clarity repositions you to quit nice activities that take you nowhere in order to pursue risky tasks that take you somewhere.
Israelmore Ayivor
Stop cheating to be rich. Stop stealing to be wealthy. Stop siphoning the valuables of other people to keep for yourself.
Israelmore Ayivor

Israelmore Ayivor
Man may fall and fail, but God is always right. Man may die and perish, but God is always alive.
Israelmore Ayivor
Plant your tiny seeds and keep watering them every day. Soon, they'll grow.
Israelmore Ayivor
Who you are when you have no power to say anything, and who you become when you have power to say everything will determine whether you are a leader or not.
Israelmore Ayivor
It's is good you are about something. But wait and ask, why and how?. Without whys and hows, not every energetic movement can be called progress.
Israelmore Ayivor
Never deviate from the right way and you will improve.
Israelmore Ayivor
No struggle, no success. The stronger the thunder, the heavier the rainfall
Israelmore Ayivor
Leadership is about focus and concentrations. To be in focus, choose a clear direction. To concentrate, remain in that direction!
Israelmore Ayivor
You have to know who to keep near you and those you should be far away from.
Israelmore Ayivor
Leaders don't give excessive vocal orders. They humbly involve people and together cooperate with them to make a change happen.
Israelmore Ayivor
A self-leader cries for no followers by himself. He does his thing and people get to know him, chase him and learn from him.
Israelmore Ayivor
You can be humble without compromising your values.
Israelmore Ayivor
You don't miss great leaders because their impacts and footprints are always staring at you in the face.
Israelmore Ayivor
If you leave your soil untilled, you will not benefit from God's rain. Even if God pours down a heavy rainfall, it will only grow weeds on your land.
Israelmore Ayivor
Show the world you are not here to just pass through. Leave great footprints wherever you pass and be remembered for the change you initiated.
Israelmore Ayivor
Don't spend your money on luxuries. Save it and secure a safe future. Don't crave for quick satisfaction.
Israelmore Ayivor
You are loaded with answers; don't live your entire life asking questions.
Israelmore Ayivor
Leaders don't venture without vision. They don't pray without plans. They don't climb without clues. They are always prepared.
Israelmore Ayivor
If you have only answers and no questions, chances are high that you will never know new things.
Israelmore Ayivor
Better channel your words into prayer, than into complaints. Zip your mouth and make a plan.
Israelmore Ayivor
Success is deliberate. It doesn't come as an accident. What you work for is what you achieve. Faith without work is a vain hope.
Israelmore Ayivor
If you fall into a pit, you need a ladder, not a hoe. You must climb up and not dig up. Leaders discover the right way out of limitations.
Israelmore Ayivor
A person with low standards will forever be walking. A person with high standard will soon stop walking and start running. Later, they'll soon stop running and start galloping. The next time you see him, he's either flying or soaring.
Israelmore Ayivor
Words do less than 10 things, but actions do more than 10 thousand things. Leaders don't talk in vain; they follow with actions.
Israelmore Ayivor
To become a better you, don't dream of becoming a superior over other people. Dream of becoming a superior over your previous achievements.
Israelmore Ayivor
People either build a castle or a dungeon. The former by their virtues, pull people into positive edifices with gainful impression. The later by their vices, push people into negative huts with painful oppression.
Israelmore Ayivor
Stop blaming other people for your mistakes. Until you are ready to admit that you are infallible, you are vulnerable for failure to whip.
Israelmore Ayivor
The time it takes to fall from the top of a mountain to the floor it shorter than what it takes to climb from the floor to the top. Only leaders with character can maintain their trusts.
Israelmore Ayivor
Leaders create awareness in their followers about the great potentials they carry and how to release them for the benefit of all. Leaders are motivators,
Israelmore Ayivor
Consistency is the belt that fastens excellence in position. If you don't do it repeatedly, you'll not excel in it.
Israelmore Ayivor
Greed squeezes your dreams into a portable size, so that failure can easily carry them to dump somewhere.
Israelmore Ayivor
Anyone who will eat his seeds today will be hungry tomorrow because he has nothing to plant and nothing to harvest later.
Israelmore Ayivor
Stay at peace with everyone you meet and hold no grudge with anyone for any reason.
Israelmore Ayivor
Leaders don't hide good news from their followers. As long as they discover knowledge, they share knowledge. They leave part of them with people they meet; hence they are hardly missed when they are gone.
Israelmore Ayivor
A leader in 10 minutes can unlock your potentials which in reality would have taken you 10 years to do without them.
Israelmore Ayivor
Be on the right way and go in the right direction. Once you are never going back, you will progress day after day, little by little.
Israelmore Ayivor
What differentiates victors and victims are visions and vigor. Victims won't get the vim to step out of their situations.
Israelmore Ayivor
Hard work is never a punishment. If you see it so, you may not do it with the right attitude.
Israelmore Ayivor
If you're determined to stand, nothing can move you. If you're determined to move, nothing can stop you. Determination is the key!
Israelmore Ayivor
Leaders know where they can function better. They don't cry over what they cannot do.
Israelmore Ayivor

Israelmore Ayivor
The simplest way to silence your critics as a leader is to do what they claim you can't do. However, be careful they don't set you up to take fatal risks to please their criticisms.
Israelmore Ayivor
Leaders inform, inspire and improve people. They educate, empower and enrich the value of their followers. They make impacts.
Israelmore Ayivor
16th century advertisements cannot market 21st century products. Look for what is necessary at the present moment.

To become a better you, remember to be grateful to people who have contributed to making you who you are today.
Israelmore Ayivor
There is no medal for the best beggar of the world. Nobody celebrates beggars.
Israelmore Ayivor
Leaders do not play a what if game. They believe it will be and work it to be! Success is scarce because fear is common.
Israelmore Ayivor
Don't let the horrible nature of the waters prevent you from crossing the rivers of life. The more horrible the challenges we face, the sweeter the joy of conquering them.
Israelmore Ayivor
Leaders don't fall in gutters of fear; only negative ideas flow in that canal. There, you will see filthy things like doubts and disbelief.
Israelmore Ayivor
Never let the weight of challenges and the duration of your dreams scare you to give up.
Israelmore Ayivor
If you yearn to learn, you'll learn to earn.
Israelmore Ayivor
Pay attention to your goals and never let the euphoria of the early success convince you to brag about.

Israelmore Ayivor
You got seeds of greatness in you. Sow them and reap greatness. You will rise.

Israelmore Ayivor
Work hard and take risks. Try it before you confirm it is difficult!
Israelmore Ayivor
The courageous attitude of a leader awakens the dormant attitude of followers. The dormant attitude of a leader weakens the passionate attitude of followers. Leadership determines everything.

Israelmore Ayivor
Hate nobody; love everybody including people who offend you.
Israelmore Ayivor
Leaders will love to be poor and see their people rich, than to be rich and see their people poor. This is their mission.
Israelmore Ayivor
Contrary to popular opinion, leaders aren't created out of fame. Fame is just a shadow. When you enter dark times in, it leaves you.
Israelmore Ayivor
Leaders don't cry for what country can do for them for free. They dream about what they can do for country at high cost.
Israelmore Ayivor
When you decide to be better than you were yesterday and maintain this attitude, you are going to the peak.
Israelmore Ayivor
If you care to know, majority of successful people in the world were all struck by limitations in one way or the other. What made them great isn't the absence of limitations; but it was their persistence to rise in the face of those limitations.
Israelmore Ayivor
Leadership is built on inspirations. Inspiration does both the theoretical and the practical job. By inspiration, people are not only informed to know what is right. But they are also convinced to always do what's right.
Israelmore Ayivor
There are some things you can change about your life; believe it is possible and take actions. God will grant you the grace.
Israelmore Ayivor

Israelmore Ayivor
You never have anything because you fought for nothing.
Israelmore Ayivor
A leader does not only discover what people can do better. He teaches, guides and mentor them to do it exceptionally well. When a seed comes into contact with a leader, fruits are produced.
Israelmore Ayivor
Be enthusiastic for what you want. Work hard for it.
Israelmore Ayivor
Leaders create influence with the clays of criticism others throw at them. They don't take offence; they take corrections.
Israelmore Ayivor
Leaders don't call unhappy followers ungrateful people. They see them as lesson teachers. They find out why they are unhappy; perhaps it could be as a result of their attitudes. That informs them to change!
Israelmore Ayivor
Your relationships will either empower you to overcome obstacles, or put fears in you so you can run away from them.
Israelmore Ayivor
I charge you; once you have the dream, decide to begin and begin right away. Wait for nobody to blow whistles for you to start.
Israelmore Ayivor
Leaders are interested in gains. However, they acknowledge that there is no gain without pain. They embrace the pain.
Israelmore Ayivor
People who are ready to learn are those who will be the best to lead.
Israelmore Ayivor
You can't lead people if you can't lead yourself. Self-leadership qualities qualifies you to become a co-operate leader.
Israelmore Ayivor
Leaders reject free opportunities they don't need, so that they can have time to create the expensive opportunities they need.
Israelmore Ayivor
If you were called to gallop like the horse, never end up hopping like the frog. Rise up for greatness.
Israelmore Ayivor
Many self-leaders lead the world even by being invisible. The world learns from them without sitting in their classrooms.
Israelmore Ayivor
If you are trying to look clean, neat and avoid casting your nets in trouble waters, you will catch no fish.
Israelmore Ayivor
When you are a person people can trust, they will call on upon you, love to be around you and work with you. A leader's skills take him to people, but his character brings people to him.
