Your Jethro Motivation to be Happy Where You Are

Your Jethro Motivation to be Happy Where You Are

One of the amazing things I experienced since we moved to America is the change of seasons. From the first cycle of seasons, I could really understand what I have been teaching in French since 2013 about seasons.

Actually I appreciate the Fall time because I have the impression that God came down and painted the leaves on trees to make a perfect decoration of the nature. I kept telling myself this sentence the whole of last Spring as I was walking or driving around.

I maintained a good relationship with some of my French students in Kampala  and one of them greeted me one morning on a social media platform. As the student asked me how is life in America, I responded we were entering the fall and the student responded ” We are entering the flooding season here.”

I felt bad because I knew where the conversation could escalate. Most of time when someone from Home Continent start a sentence like that, I could expect a lot of complains. So to turn the conversation to a more positive tune , I replied “There are also floods here in America. One of them just killed some people some times ago”.

I did a quick verification of what I listen on the news and sent the link.

Can you imagine! The former student was the one encouraging me and being compassionate about life and safety here in America.

By sharing about the flooding reality in the US,  I wanted to make my former student understand that there are challenges every where in the world, even America.

And this is my point for today’s article: Learn how to be happy where you are (unless it’s unsafe or killing your dreams) with what you have and you will see treasures around you. You might be surprise that some people even envy being where you are and they might never understand why you complain about everything all the time.

I remember that while training workers in Kampala, one of them told me she better raise her children in Africa than in America. Many Sub-Saharan African will not believe that until his/her ears hears such declaration.

My point is that there is much beauty around us to contemplate than things to complain about. Being happy where we are could simply means value people around us; Start a community project to bring positive impact; make donation to people in needs; visit or pray for the sick or prisoners.

Do something that demonstrate that where you are is the best place God want you to be right now and when time comes, you will move to a better place. That is what I demonstrate in my book The Secret of Distinction in the section seeing the best side of things.

These motivations speech could help you develop a more optimistic view of where you are right now so that you will be happier while working to move forward. In that way, you will learn more than everyone around you and bring more values to your environment than others.

Don’t forget to  Read, Reflect and Act on what could help you become happier where you are now in your life, career, family, project and community.

Ready?

1.”Ease is a greater threat to progress than hardship.” ( Denzel Washington, Actor,
director, producer  )

2. “Don’t let negative commentary from people who don’t understand what you do get you down. Remember the 80/20 rule and if you can satisfy 80% all the time, you’re doing ok .”( Henderson, Co-Founder/Director at The Winey Cow)

3. “A true leader can say ‘I don’t know’ or ‘I don’t understand’ or ‘I need help.”(Simon Sinek, Start With Why founder )

4. “It is the many different experiences you encounter along your own personal and unique journey that will really allow you to fulfill your potential — not just an uplift in salary, a change in job title and a company car allowance.” (Alistair Cox, Hays CEO)

5. “I’m convinced that about half of what separates successful entrepreneurs from the non-successful ones is pure perseverance.” (Steve Jobs, Apple Founder)

6. “Travaille dur jusqu’à ce que ça fasse vraiment mal parce que la pauvreté fait beaucoup plus mal…nous n’avons pas été créés pour rester pauvre.”(Paul Kagame, Président du Rwanda)

7. “Failure is not falling down and making a mistake, or choosing the wrong movie, or doing the wrong thing at the wrong time. It’s stopping. Stopping is the failure, not continuing forward is the failure, not keeping going.” ( Said Jennifer Lopez to LinkedIn’s Dan Roth , actor and entrepreneur )

I am very happy to understand that everybody don’t need to make a positive appreciation on me and what I am in for me to move forward in life. The truth is that such negative comments come from 80% people who don’t know or understand what I could be working on. The 20%  of people who value who I am and what I do bring the necessary driving force I need to accomplish 80% of my daily goals.

I would like to know which one of the above motivations helped you celebrate where you are now in a specific aspect of your life.

Your Jethro Motivation To Share Your Story

Your Jethro Motivation To Share Your Story

Some months ago, I was discussing with someone and we were wondering why successful people enjoy sharing their stories on how they succeeded. Why would someone tell me with such honesty what he/she did to become successful now?

Isn’t he/she afraid that those listening to their story could become more successful than them?

We came to the conclusion that whatever successful is written about someone, if you want to succeed, you will have to act by yourself. Their stories are inspirations to motivate others to take the necessary actions to get out of mediocrity and make a difference that will do good to others.

The question we then asked ourselves was the confusion about the concept of success. Actually my friend told me he was watching a TV program and the following question was asked to a young man who made millions of dollars very quickly: “How did you do to become successful?”

Right there in front of the TV, my friends said he shouted: “Is it that being successful? Making millions of dollars the fastest way possible?”

Now you see where I am bringing you? Successful people who share their stories are not always talking about the biggest house, bank account or the most expensive car brand or the last time they had a lunch in a famous restaurant.

Most of these people will tell you that success started when they had not that much money. Their success started when they settled goals, and started achieving them on a daily, weekly, monthly and yearly basis. Maybe the day we heard about what we know now as their success is the climax of 10, 20 or even 30 years of achieving small goals each and everyday.

And you could be shocked to discover that one of their secret to keep moving forward is that they narrated their stories while moving forward step by step. The good and bad days, the ups and downs on their goal centered journey has been part of their success stories.

It could be excellent to really Read, Reflect and Act on the following motivation speeches. If they trigger you to settle goals and work hard to see them become reality, you can start sharing your story.

Somebody out there need to hear your story of how you are growing…

1.“Being complementary, amplifying public decisions using our own instruments, playing on our strengths: that’s how states, companies, citizens, will tackle today’s challenges, together.”( Thomas Buberl, AXA Group CEO)

2.”What  happens if actually just turn your phone off? Try setting a time of a 20 minutes and say whatever I am doing I am not going to stop for the next 20 minutes. You’ll be surprised  how your brains start to fire and your  deep thinking comes out and you’ll find solutions you never thought are possible.You’ll be surprised how much you get done” (Dr Lynn Gribble, Goalcast Speaker)

3. “Without commitment you’ll never start but more importantly without consistency you’ll never finish.” (Denzel Washington,  Actor, director; producer)

4. “It’s time to embrace new ways of working and new ownership models. We must treat data as assets we trade and monetize.” (Martina Koederitz, IBM’s)

5. “Get the fundamentals down and the level of everything you do will rise.” (Michael Jordan, former professional basketball player,  entrepreneur, majority owner of the Charlotte Hornets)

6. “For any organization, equitable, inclusive leadership is essential.”(Ruth Williams Brinkley, Kaiser Foundation Health Plan and Hospitals of the Northwest President)

7.  “Live in the moment, now, and enjoy that you are doing something that you love. Work for passion, and profits.” (Melanie Eusebe, entrepreneur and co-founder of the British Black Business Awards)

8. “The countries where home cooking is still healthy, that tradition, that practice , have lower rates of obesity” ( Michael Pollan,  American author, journalist, activist, Lewis K. Chan Arts Lecturer and Professor of Practice of Non-Fiction at Harvard University, professor of journalism at the UC Berkeley Graduate School of Journalism.)

9.  “True, the digital transformation challenges our tried-and-tested notions, but it also promises an infinite number of new opportunities.” (Tine Mueller, Douglas Group CE)

10.  “For most people, being part of a great community on a shared mission is even more rewarding than money.” (Ray Dalio, Bridgewater)

Could you tell me which of the above motivation speech helped you develop a plan to become a storyteller?

For me, I understood from the third speech that consistency is what I need now to keep writing a motivation article every week for the coming years.

I am grateful to God for the commitment that made me start the journey as a blogger on January 2016 and publish my first book the same year in French and now available in English.

I can’y wait to hear your story!

Your Weekly Jethro Motivation for Better Delegation 

Your Weekly Jethro Motivation for Better Delegation 

When I started online writing in January 2016,I quickly noticed that I could not make it alone in the publishing process if I don’t work with people who could support me in the dissemination, the proofing and the feedback of my articles.

I also noticed that I became more productive on writing when someone else was involved on other area of publishing like proofing, editing the website or sharing on Facebook. It actually gave me more time to frame quality contents for my readers.

According to Bryan Tracy, delegation depends on 9 simple principles:

  1. Focusing on High-Value Activities. Devoting the maximum of your time on activities that have the biggest positive impact in your life, family, career and business.
  2. Invest on what you do best and delegate other aspects. This simply means that what you do the best is the area you will have more impact. Other area where you are average must be delegated to people who are smarter or more talented than you.
  3. Delegate to someone with experience. As you think of giving a task to someone in your team, make sure the person have demonstrated the necessary skills for a sustainable period of time in the area of responsibility.
  4. The clarity of the task. The clearer the task is, the better the person to whom it is delegated will perform at his/her best.
  5. The Power of setting a deadline. Completion hours, days, dates, weeks, months, etc. are very important if you expect a sense of urgency in the task to be done. Without deadlines, the probability the job will be well done is vague.
  6. The importance of resources. What type of materials are necessary to realize the task? The answer to this question will determine what sort of resources the person you are delegating the task might need.
  7. Consequences. What if the job is not done the way it’s suppose to be on the time it’s suppose to be? An open discussion with the person you are giving the responsibility of the job will help settle the motivation needed for the task.
  8. Write down the process and sign with agreement. This guarantee that both of you understand what you are up to and also, written down document gives more value to the job to be done.
  9. The need for inspection. Do not forget to follow up the task delegated. Set up a periodicity on which you are going to make sure your expectation are being met the way you agreed upon.

As you are going through these speeches today, I would like you not only to practice the most relevant one to grow your life, career, family, job or business but also to think on how it may help you delegate some responsibilities to people around you so that you can focus on the top 3 priorities of your life.

Don’t forget to Read, Reflect and Act.

1.”Dreams without goals are just dreams and they ultimately fuel disappointment.”(Denzel Hayes Washington, Actor, Director, and Producer)

2.“It’s time to rediscover the joy that comes with knowledge of the world, and your unique place in it.”( Mark Little, Journalist and Kinzen co-founder and CEO)

3.“Sameness ultimately leads to ignorance, while diversity of thought breeds innovation.”(Darryl White , BMO Financial Group’s CEO)

4.“In order to bring forth the deepest treasures within you have to have the courage to stand apart from all those who want you to ‘fit in,’ ‘conform,’ ‘behave.” (Judith Sherven, clinical psychologist and executive coach)

5.“To be inventive, to make a difference in the world, an entrepreneur needs a support network that will embrace and explore crazy ideas.” (Peter Diamandis, XPRIZE Foundation chairman and CEO)

6.”What we believe and what we think is of zero consequence if we do nothing about it.” ( Hervé Ngaté, Author, Writer)

7.”I realize I could not grow with people who are struggling like me.” (Answered  Lisa Nichols to the question “how did you move from the bottom to the top”, Founder of Motivating the Masses and CEO of Motivating the Teen Spirit, LLC )

8.”Between 10-20 years old, learn whatever you can.”(Jackie Chan, Actor, Film director, Producer )

9.”Anybody can dream, but you’ll never see it until you are willing to be committed to it.”(T.D. Jakes, Pastor, Author and Filmmaker)

10.“We [entrepreneurs] are equally responsible for balancing hope and reality, and for knowing when no degree of optimism is going to overcome the underlying challenges.” (Danny Meyer, Shake Shack founder and Union Square Hospitality Group CEO)

I was challenged by the seventh speech as I confirmed that every time I took a step forward in my life, I had to abandon people who were struggling with the same problem like me.

For marriage, I started walking and listening to married people instead of complaining about the problems of being singles with other bachelors.

For spiritual growth, I started listening and looking for fellowship with people who helped me live by faith in the Bible and stopped listening and hanging around people with condemning sermons and legalistic perspective.

For career and social advancement, I followed models and learned from successful instead of being constantly surrounded with people who were problem-centered instead of solution-oriented.

I would be glad to know which motivational speech helped you being more successful.

Your Weekly Jethro’s Motivation Against Professional Fears

Your Weekly Jethro’s Motivation Against Professional Fears

One of my greatest fear was to stand in front of a public to deliver a speech. I preferred small groups for conversation or training where I felt more comfortable with interactions.

But I learnt to overcome such a fear during  15 years as a youth leader in Cameroon because I had no choice but to stand in front of them to provide leadership. During those years, I understood through the hard way that fear is a common emotion when you face the unknown but that it could be overcome when clear communication goals (without neglecting prayer) are sets before stepping in public.

Today I feel more comfortable moving from small to large groups of people for any type of communication.

Starting a new job, a new family, a new business, a new relationship, moving into a new environment are situations that could easily become stressing if we allow fear to control us.

As a professional, setting clear goals before moving into the next step of your life will help you have a better picture of the best you could do to succeed out of your comfort zone.

The following motivation speeches may contribute in giving you some ideas on how to set goals for your family, your career, your business or your community group. Read, reflect and act…

1. “Making a list of priorities to do for each day is what I observed my mother doing for years.” (Hervé Ngaté, Author)

2. “Use the momentum you get after a success … to catapult you forward. You become incredibly vulnerable when you let the success diminish your attention to detail or cloud your judgment.” ( Bernard Marr, Author)

3. “I’m adamant about not bringing my phone to the dinner table. I’ve also been known to bring out a festive red basket during holiday get together and ask everyone to deposit their phones.” ( Willow Bay, USC Annenberg School for Communication and Journalism Dean)

4. “One of my most emphatic messages is that getting the same pleasure from saving as you do from spending will put you on the road to wealth.” ( Suze Orman,TV host and author )

5. “I never thought I would become a startup founder, because I didn’t see any other young, van-living, birkenstock-wearing women doing that.” ( Zoe Condliffe, CEO and founder of  “She’s A Crowd”)

6. “Unless we diversify the voices and the people that get an opportunity to become entrepreneurs, we’re never going to have ideas that really address the full demographics of the country.” ?( Jennifer Hyman,  Rent the Runway CEO)

7. “Leadership is not for everyone, nor I would argue, should it be for anyone forever. So, it’s important that we, as human leaders, periodically step back and test how truly open and flexible our our minds are.”( Sally Blount)

The first motivation remembered me that I use to see my mother have a “To Do List” to make sure she will achieve her daily goals. That image remained in my mind until I discovered in my readings that it’s one of the keys for success in every area of life.

And I invest a planning time everyday on my “To Do List” and I am happy at the end of the day to realize that I accomplished my daily goals.

I would be happy to know which of these motivation speeches helped you improve on your professional skills.

Your Weekly Jethro Motivations For Better Learning

Your Weekly Jethro Motivations For Better Learning

There is no doubt that the digital revolution is bringing a lot of improvement to our professional growth.With just one click you can get almost all the most updated information on a product, a company or the  best business investment available.

A survey revealed that the first top 4 leading digital marketing are LinkedIn, Twitter, Facebook and YouTube. And Knowledge is the most valuable product being exposed on those channels.

For example, with 63 millions monthly users, an average user spends 17 minutes monthly on LinkedIn. This bring us to an average of 30 seconds of learning a day!

Such data makes me question how much could be learned in such a short period of time knowing that our brain need to process information and demand constant practice to integrate knowledge into our skills.

The speed at which information flows on the digital  world may become a danger for our generation if we do not take time to be selective on what we consume on social media. And after selecting the best channels and the best information we need to grow ourselves for a better professional outcome, we still have to apply the Read-Reflect-Act process to make sure we benefit 100% from the knew knowledge.

If an hour is invested daily using the above learning process, it’s estimated that one will be among the top professionals in our specialty area after 2 years.

Why don’t you try it on these weekly motivations? It could be a good start since these speeches are crafted from the leading social media channel in the World.

First, read all the motivation speeches and select the one that captivate you the most as it’s related to your professional area.

Second, reflect on it by rewriting it down in your own words. Use a dictionary if necessary to understand it better. Google the author name to know more about him/her because it could help you have a better insight of the context. You will therefore understand what is being said from the author’s view.

Third, take action by answering the question : “How can I apply this knowledge to grow myself, my skills or my business?”

Ready?

1.“You may never believe you are great. A great mother, a great partner, a great entrepreneur, a great leader… And that’s ok. Lead anyway and just keep trying to be better, without letting natural self doubts limit you.”(Stella & Dot Family Brands founder and CEO Jessica DiLullo Herrin)

2. “Focusing on what should be done after having a difficult conversation is just as important as having the conversation itself.” (Kalaari managing director Vani Kola)

3.“This is an ideal time for every workplace to reflect and review the support mechanisms and programs in place to promote staff mental wellbeing.”(Workskil Australia CEO Nicole Dwyer)

4. “The illiterate of the 21st century will not be those who cannot read and write, but those who cannot learn, unlearn, and relearn.” (Alvin Toffler)

5. “You never know when you’ll meet your next investor, customer, or partner.”(Knowlly founder Andrèz Coco)

6.“But just because it’s not easy to address these complex issues doesn’t mean we shouldn’t do what’s right and tackle them head-on.” (Mylan CEO Heather Bresch)

7. “Growth happens when you’re stretched. Growth happens when you’re pushed. Growth happens when you’re forced to overcome challenges, obstacles and self-doubt. If you aren’t uncomfortable, you aren’t growing.” (Jeff Haden, Author)

8. “It is hard to summon a sense of hope and self-worth when you’re on your own. So you squeeze out any semblance of progress you can find, and then you celebrate it. One of the greatest motivators is a sign of progress.” (Adobe’s Scott Belsky)

I was really challenged by the 4th motivation speech as I notice that the business and professional world is changing very fast due to quality knowledge. I am more committed to invest an hour everyday to learn from a professional platform, a book or a success model.

I would be glad to know which of the above declarations challenged you to become a better professional and compelled you to reflect and act on it.

Your Weekly Jethro’s Wisdom For Growth

Your Weekly Jethro’s Wisdom For Growth

I am happy once again to introduce the weekly motivational speeches crafted from linkedIn. They are updated  motivations on current world and business challenges.

I called the article “Jethro’s Wisdom” because of the famous story of Moses’ father in law -Called Jethro-who gave Moses an advice that revolutionized his leadership and management skills and made him more effective and efficient for God.

As I told you in the first article of this serie, the Bible is my primary source of inspiration for every aspect of my life and I thought it could be nice to name this motivational serie after Jethro’s advice to Moses.

Jethro’s wisdom is just a methaphoric image meaning that, in business and professional life, we need the advices of others to reach our full potential even if they don’t necessary have the same beliefs as us.

So let’s dive deep into the next seven declarations from professionals that could trigger your goals:

1.“Wherever companies and individuals are committed to swift action in the service of their core values, they can find new customers and opportunities.”(The Guardian Life Insurance Company of America president & CEO Deanna Mulligan)

2. “Don’t worry unduly about showing nerves: they prove you really want the job. A little dash of self-deprecating humour can help relax the mood.
” ( Hamilton Bradshaw CEO James Caan)

3. “If you lead a life of consequences, you’ll accept a lot of nonsense that comes your way. But if you live a life of convictions, you will always exercise the right to speak up.” (Prabir Jha, President & Global Chief People Officer, Cipla)

4. “It’s easy, especially as a first-time founder, to try to overcompensate for areas of insecurity or doubt, but I’ve found a strategy that works better than trying to be someone who I’m not—admitting where I don’t have expertise, and also, where I do.” (Jebbit CEO Tom Coburn notes)

5. “There’s something wonderfully freeing about realizing the world can and will keep turning without you. Completely stepping away from work for a time gives us the gift of perspective.” ( Executive coach Elizabeth Grace Saunders writes)

6. “You need responses that are punchy, crisp, compelling, and to the point. One-word answers are a disaster, but so is a filibuster. Keep it conversational. You can always elaborate when the interviewer asks a follow-up question.” ( Korn Ferry CEO Gary Burnison)

7. “The phrase “brain food” is real and powerful, and we find it when we take on new challenges in our jobs, read up on an area of interest, listen to a podcast, or tackle something that forces us to think in a different way.” ( Robbie Bach,Consultant)

I really liked the fith motivation because I understood in a new way the importance of holidays to have a refreshing vision of the future.

Which one of the above motivation was interesting to you? I would be glad to hear from you.

Summer Hat And Sunglasses Mysteries Solved

Summer Hat And Sunglasses Mysteries Solved

When I was a teenage boy, I remember me and others children use to have a certain game: We wanted to see who among us could look straith at the sun in the sky for the longest period.

I remember having teers flowing from my eyes each time we play the game not knowing this was a sign of eye damage. Later, I wear a hat almost everyday to protect my eyes from sunlight. I also remember that when I was diagnose with myopia, I had to ask for dark glasses against the sunlight.

I would like to share with you, 3 informations that could help you avoid damaging your eyes or help your loved one avoid it.

It’s important to understand that according to some researches “sunlight can flood your retinas, overstimulating the rods and cones that sense light and causing them to release chemicals that can damage the retinas. This condition is known as solar retinopathy, and it can cause permanent eye damage.”

1.Ultraviolet (UV) Radiation And Your Eyes. …

According to preventblindness “Extended exposure to the sun’s UV rays has been linked to eye damage, including cataracts, macular degeneration, pingueculae, pterygia and photokeratitis that can cause temporary vision loss.”

2. The worse of all: Macular degeneration

Based on their information, Allaboutvision.com  affirm that “macular degeneration is a leading cause of vision loss for older Americans. UV rays, especially UV-B rays, may also cause some kinds of cataracts. A cataract is a clouding of the eye’s natural lens, the part of the eye that focuses the light we see.”

3. Not only during summer

The above also confirmed that “Sun damage to eyes can occur anytime during the year, not just in the summertime, so be sure to wear UV-blocking sunglasses and broad-brimmed hats whenever you’re outside.”

The thruth is that  the cloud cannot protect you against sun’s rays because they are thin.

I would like you to protect your vision and the one of your beloved one by buying  a sample of this Sunglass  for just $5.64.

For women, you could also get a nice and cheap Hat for only $9.99.

For men also, there is a good quality and cheat Hat for only $9.99 also.

With less than $16, you could protect yourself from any eye damage due to sun but also prevent blindness.

The Power of Small Achievements!

The Power of Small Achievements!

This week has been the publication of the 100 th article on seed4future.com in almost 2 years.

With the approach of thanksgiving , one of the first things I am gratefull to God is the ability to keep writing all this time despite the many challenges.

My goal is to continue to write for the next 8 years whatever happens.

This means I would have published 500 articles in 10 years. I will be 44 years old by that time.

Considering an average of 800 words for each article, I would produced 400000  words in 10 years. An equivalent of 10 books of 100 pages average.

As we are preparing to enter year 2018, I am writing to encourage you to start something, how small you estimate it.

I started with no experience on blogging. I only had the passion for self-development contents and the desire to communicate my experience with the greatest number of people.

This is where it led me:

– 100 articles writen by me, co- writers and writers from Cameroon, Uganda, Burundi and India.

– Worlwide visibility in 123 countries in 5 continents.Countries.jpg

– More than 20 000 viewers and visitors on my blog.

– Free Self and Organizational Development Training in Netherland, Uganda, Kenya, USA, India and Cameroon.

– 4-Ebooks published on blookup.com

If the passion for something good and valuable burns in your heart , do it with the little resources you have and grow it with hard work and perseverance.

That’s what I did and I am determined to keep writing!

Start somewhere! Do it and keep doing it!!!
