THINK SOLUTIONS: PROFUNDITIES/UNVEILING QUOTES 4

cerebral quotes 43

The progressive development of the thinking faculty grants access to curative awareness but man must gradually shed the impurities of the mundane and commit to becoming like the Higher Self to attain perfection of the faculty

Awareness is itself curative. This is a very fundamental scriptural truth because the Master said: “Ye shall know the truth; and the truth shall make you free.” For man to get to the point where he knows definitely that his awareness of specific truth

THE ART OF QUESTIONING

                                                        questioning

“The important thing is not to stop questioning; curiosity has its own reason for existing.” Albert Einstein

The mind that’s preoccupied with questions and that asks questions is in constant search for answers. Answers are solutions to problems and with every solution, there is value added. We can ask questions on a particular issue

WHEN TO BE SILENT

image-of-silence-3

“…If any man offend not in word, the same is a perfect man, and able also to bridle the whole body. But the tongue can no man tame; it is an unruly evil, full of deadly poison: James 3:2,8

Many times when you’re in an aggressive mood and are tempted to rain brimstone and fire, the often still unheeded voice bids you “be still” and “hold back” or “bridle your tongue”; but it takes a vessel that’s surrendered to the Potter and has been exercised towards that frequency to heed the voice, knowing full well that sowing into the spirit shall of the same reap life and sowing to the flesh shall of same reap corruption.

Live in the Moment

                                                     NATURE IMAGE

This time, like the past, and future
Is a gift if you perceive it so;
For often times
We’re never appreciative
Of common everyday occurrences:
Like “in everything give thanks”
So well is it said of this time:
“That many shall be thankless”
Thus, it is not a surprise.

In the Search for Relevance

Only One is Relevant
Though all in ego claim;
Though all strive
Whether they worship or not
Whether they acknowledge or not
Whether they honour or not
Whether they sacrifice or not
To the only Relevant One.

THE CHANGING FACE OF LEADERSHIP

“Without initiative, leaders are simply workers in leadership positions.”
                                                                                                     Bo Bennet

Leadership from the traditional point of view is often perceived from the angle of the position one occupies. This means that everyone looks up to the man at the top for

AGILE VALUE CONFERENCE: RE-IGNITE…!

CEREBRAL THRUST
presents
GET AGILE VALUE CONFERENCE: RE-IGNITE…!

January 9, 16, 23, 30, 2016 Between 10am & 4pm

(4 Engaging Saturdays to kick start 2016)

28, Gbolade Adebanjo Street, Off Coker Road, Ilupeju, Lagos.
Who should Attend?
  • Anyone to whom Value makes any sense
    …and who seeks to increase same exponentially
  • Anyone in need of meeting and learning
    …from other perceptive minds
  • Anyone seeking to make impact
    …in a seemingly saturated market
 “One way to attain the enduring value you only dream of is to stay comfortable in discomfort always with the right information.”

-Joseph Ayeni

  • A vast majority of us have been through school, studied a variety of courses, earned a degree or more but yet struggle with the question of value, purpose & the quest for fulfilment.
  • Many of us too have good qualifications but unfortunately fail to secure employment. Why? No employer thinks we are employable and they’re not ready to go the Trainee route with you.
  • Some of us have been struggling for a while with transiting from where we are to where we desire to be. We once held rosy jobs but left to fill entrepreneurial roles we were ill-equipped for; though we thought we were.
  • And some of us are just occupying seats labelled “frustration” and at a total loss what do with our lives.

Now, here’s the catch!

Do you realise that you’re a part of over 160 Million people and half or more of this number are unemployed or disengaged? Did you know that more than 50% of this number comprise the young, agile and strong but unaccomplished lot? Do you fall in the bracket of those average and dissatisfied-with-themselves-and-the-environment group?Yet, you belong in the biggest market in black Africa?You must be kidding…!!!Would you believe me if I told you that the problems in the surrounding are actually potentials to empowerment and huge deposits of wealth that you are unconscious of? Yes,SOLUTIONS to problems only mean one thing – WEALTH CREATION.Perhaps you should ask yourself who you are why you traverse this path. Do you know?If these thoughts provoke you in anyway, I advise that you join us at the…

COURAGE, THE DOCTRINE OF NECESSITY YOU REQUIRE TO WIN

“Courage is doing what you are afraid to do. There can be no courage
                         unless you are scared.” Eddie Rickenbacker
“Courage is not the absence of fear, but rather the judgement that
                          something is more important than fear.” Ambrose Redmoon
Let me start by relaying the source of the inspiration to write this. Actually, I was brooding on what courses to either add or remove from the list of my first quarter 2016 Impact/Leadership Development Training when it hit me to

A disciplined mind is a sound mind and vice versa. The mind is disciplined because it has been subjected to sound principles and judgement over

YOUR LOWEST POINT CAN BE YOURS OR ANOTHER’S INSPIRATION

I didn’t see it then, but it turned out that getting fired from Apple was the best thing that could have ever happened to me. The heaviness of being successful was replaced by the lightness of being a beginner again, less sure about everything. It freed me to enter one of the most creative periods of my life. It was awful tasting medicine but I guess the patient needed it. Sometimes life hits you in the head with a brick. Don’t lose faith.”   Steve Jobs

Your lowest point in life or limbo could actually be the turning point for you. Perhaps no better example of contemporary business success may aptly express this like

“Every man is the architect of his own life. He builds it just the way he wants it. However,
after he has built what he wants, he sometimes decides that he doesn’t like what he has

SO WHAT IF YOU CHOOSE NOT TO SUCCEED?

Sometime back I remember asking a lady this question (” What would the world lose if you chose not to succeed?”) and she responded very quickly and tersely too without pondering, “Nothing!” I was at a loss as to what to say next as I actually meant to help proffer a solution to her chronically depressed state. At least that’s what I learnt from her friend.
