COM­PLI­MENTS of the sea­son to you all.

Hope I find you well.2016 has gone and was filled with some tears ,joy, thrills and spills.

An­other 12 new chap­ters have come and they’re filled with 365 new chances.

Why tell you all this? This is not to im­press you, but to im­press upon you that you do not have an ex­cuse for not chang­ing the for­tunes of your life.

This is your time re­mem­ber, cham­pi­ons see stars in scars. As usual peo­ple al­ways say these words “new year, new things” when it comes to New Year.

But here is the ques­tion: what is the new thing? In my own es­ti­ma­tion new thing is the de­ci­sion that one has to make to live life dif­fer­ently thus in the pos­i­tive sense.

With­out wast­ing time, lets talk about how to start 2017 strong. Start­ing 2017 strong be­gins with op­por­tu­nity.

Op­por­tu­ni­ties are ev­ery­where. A lot of times peo­ple spend their lives com­plain­ing about sit­u­a­tions. Oth­ers in­vest their time dis­cov­er­ing the op­por­tu­ni­ties that come with dif­fi­cul­ties.

Dis­ci­pline your­self to be alert to op­por­tu­ni­ties. Wher­ever there is a cri­sis there is an op­por­tu­nity. You need to learn to dis­cover op­por­tu­ni­ties. Brave peo­ple turn prob­lems into op­por­tu­ni­ties. What is an op­por­tu­nity? An op­por­tu­nity is sim­ply a chance for ad­vance­ment.

In my own words it is a progress or profit. What a def­i­ni­tion! Ev­ery prob­lem car­ries with it an equal op­por­tu­nity.

Think of any prob­lem and what it would take to ad­dress it. There are a lot of peo­ple who go places to look for op­por­tu­ni­ties some­times you don’t need to go far or even travel. You need to look around you.

Many a time op­por­tu­ni­ties that most peo­ple look for are ac­tu­ally sit­ting next to them.

You need to look at what you have and make the best of it. In­stead of look­ing for op­por­tu­ni­ties, cre­ate op­por­tu­ni­ties for your­self and make your­self vis­i­ble in life.

When­ever you are given an op­por­tu­nity to do some­thing, do it to the best of your abil­ity. You never know who’s in the crowd, you never know who will come across the work that you would have done.

You don’t know where your break­through will come from. Some­times it is the small things that we take for granted that will give us the op­por- tu­nity that we need in life. What­ever gift you have is a great start­ing point.

They’re peo­ple who spend the whole day on Google search­ing for op­por­tu­ni­ties but they cant spend the same time search­ing within them­selves how they can bring out op­por­tu­ni­ties within them.

So dear fel­las, in what­ever you do, dis­tin­guish your­self by go­ing an ex­tra mile be­yond what ev­ery­one will do. In the long run, you will en­joy the div­i­dends.

It doesn’t mat­ter that you’re small at the work­place, do not be afraid to give it your best. Re­solve to try and fail than never to try at all.

Most of­ten peo­ple don’t want to give au­di­ence to the pos­si­bil­ity of suc­cess. Most peo­ple are dis­cour­aged by fears of fail­ures rather than the joys of suc­cess.

In wrap­ping up, the great­est risk in life is in not tak­ing risk but you have to risk your­self in or­der for you to gain, op­por­tu­ni­ties are ev­ery­where, it is some­times how we re­act to them that makes the dif­fer­ence!

So Cool peo­ple dis­ci­pline your­self to be alert to op­por­tu­ni­ties for you to be strong this year.
