[Screenshot image of Nov. 18, 2010 Facebook post]

“Hardship can be good for you. Adversity will force you to grow stronger + help you develop mental stamina. In contrast, a love of ease will make you INEPT and unable to withstand life’s major challenges – especially when you step out of your comfort zone. People who never struggle, “fail” or make mistakes are often those who pretend/hide their errors. Don’t fool yourself!” – Tayo K. Solagbade


This blog previews/links to Two Articles That Teach What You Need to Profit from Adversity.

TIP: I practice what I preach – so the ideas I share in them are not only based on what I’ve learned from MANY years of studying successful others, but also drawn from my years of painful personal personal experiences succeeding inspite of adversity – and coaching my kids to do same!

ARCHIVE ARTICLE NO. 1: How Exposure To Poverty & Trial-By-Fire Can Be Deliberately Used To Prepare People To Succeed

Excerpt 1:

Austin “Jay-Jay” Okocha while being interviewed on a radio program (I recall vividly) said:

“All I know is Jay-Jay Okocha sold Oranges on the streets of Lagos“.

Think about it a minute.

This was a man whose accomplishments in his profession(football) cannot be ignored internationally. Yet, when confronted with evidence of widespread adoration for him based on those achievements he chose to recall what could probably qualify to be called the most humbling moments in his entire lifetime.

How Exposure To Poverty & Trial-By-Fire Can Be Deliberately Used To Prepare People To Succeed

ARCHIVE ARTICLE NO. 2: Succeeding In spite of Poverty (3 Tips You Can Use)

Excerpt 1:

FACT: I never experienced poverty as a child. But as a startup entrepreneur, I’ve suffered such severe lack of money, that my parents and siblings had to help with paying my rent, kids’ school fees etc!

Now, no offense to the reader, but if you’ve never experienced SEVERE lack of money, for prolonged periods(read: years!), you’re not likely to understand that it can damage a person’s self esteem and confidence, if s/he is not careful.

Especially when you’re unable to provide for your dependants.

I’m here today because I used my poverty to CHALLENGE myself to succeed, by diligently creating value adding solutions for clients.

NB: The above is easier said than done. Also, it is noteworthy that living and working in Nigeria made it much worse, for me than it would have been elsewhere

My exciting series of achievements since relocating to Benin Republic a year ago, prove the foregoing statement accurate.

Excerpt 2:

Like I told a young Facebook friend – Charles Adeyemi – my life is an open book. So I have no secrets.

But that is no reason to go around telling a potential client my problems.

Simply put, my finances are not his/her business. What I owe him/her is a solution to any need s/he has!

If you want to win high paying clients on a regular basis, I recommend keeping the following points in mind at all times:

1. A potential client does not want to know your money problems
