from zero to hero. is still Achievable.

Lionel messi

Moving from zero to hero is not a fairy tale, is quite achievable and possible.

Often times, when we hear people narrate their biography and how they suddenly rose from a nobody to that special individual being admired and celebrated all over the world, it sounds like a fiction.

But the truth is, such stories are real. A lot of  People suddenly rose from zero to hero as as soon as they realized that success doesn’t engage in favouritism. Success knows no age limit, family background or any particular class. It comes to people  who are ready to change their status quo. And be determined to make it at all cost.

The major mistake  we make in life is to assume that every success story  came as a result of connection from higher authority, prominent men/women or royal families. That’s not always the truth.

Behind every glory, investigate well, there is usually a story associated to it. But often times, we skip the story part while focusing more on the glory part. And here lies our problem.we don’t wish to hear how it all began because we are scared of the hurdles and challenging part of the story. But the truth is this, every legitimate success has a story line. Some which were filled with moments of pains, several months/years of bitterness and hardship but yet a determining and optimistic spirit to succeed against all odds.

Most celebrities we hail  today have their own share of the stories too. Their success didnt emerge from the sky. It all began at a zero level.

lionel messi, the professional famous footballer began his football profession in the street, along side with some other known famous footballers. At age 13. He was diagonised with a Deficiency growth hormone .  He never had a wonderful background, but yet he utilized any available opportunity he had.

I can not end up this article without mentioning one of the world’s prominient hero and personality. His name is Dr ben carson. He is one of the hero i admire so much. His story is so captivating and inspiring that one can hardly ignore.


His sudden rise from zero to hero is so overwhelming. Having lost his father at a very tender age, ben and his sibling grew up with their mother who struggled so hard to give them s good life. She did so many menial jobs in other to train them.

During his basic education, ben was not a brialliant pupil. He was known as a dull pupil and what people may refer to as a never do well. As a result of his dull performance, he was often used as an object of ridicule by his fellow pupil. they often made jest of  him.

Until one day he took a decision to change his story. And today the once ridiculed Ben has become onebof the world’s best neurosurgeon.there are still several of them with such zero to hero stories. So numerous to mention, but i will stop here, so we can focus on what to do in other to share our own zero to hero story.

From zero to hero. How to achieve it.


Believe is possible.

You can’t transform from zero to hero without believing is possible. Your belief is what makes it achievable.

Funny enough, so many folks believes that being born without a silver spoon or having grown up in a ghetto is a sign that they will end up in abject  poverty for the rest of their lives.

they’ve given up on life and have lost all hopes to succeed. and this mentality  is one of the reason  why they might remain stuck in their condition.

However, it is amazing to know that most successful people never had a wonderful background. only few out of millions have their wealth inherited.  others struggled for it. and what was their secret?

Changing their status quo. 

this is one of the ways in Overcoming your fears.

Life may not give you the lemon you crave for.

But you don’t have to settle for lime all the rest of your life. Not everyone was fortunate to have the privilege to be born with a silver spoon.

Some were fortunate to  acquire their silver spoon by birth. While Others had to work for it.

And fortunately, with their hardwork, they did not only acquire a silver sppon but also a golden one. be determined to change that status quo.

that you have less doesn’t mean you must settle less. there is always a  room for improvement. Aim higher. how can you do that?


Get into work.

Action they say speaks louder than words. All other points i mention are vital.

But it will be sounding more like a theory, if i fail to mention the most important of all which is getting into work. enough of the procrastination. check the history of people who rose from zero to hero.

They never got that by wishing. Some were gotten from several months/years of sleepless night accompained with endless prayer.

they didn’t just work hard. but also smart. They hardly spend their time engaging in irrelevant activity when they were meant to be working. Because they understand the importance of Time management.

When their mates were busy flirting around, clubbing, drinking themselves to stupor. they were busy preparing their future.

they don’t find it necessary keeping lots of friends. They only have few friends whom they share common interest and goals with. They try as much as possible to avoid any situation that poses a distraction to their dreams.

Unleashing your greatness




Unleashing your greatness
Unleashing your greatness.

Your greatness in life depends solely on your ability to discover who you are,  your purpose and value.  The word “unleash” means to free, release  or let go. You can’t release what you are not in possession of.

You first have to understand that your greatness is not far from you. It is within. Unfortunately, so many folks are yet to understand this. They run from pillar to post looking for a means  of livelihood, they run helter and skelter, thinking that their destiny had been tied somewehere.

They keep searching for wealth in the wrong places   Without realizing the fact that it is right under their feet.  They keep chasing shadows while the real being is right beside them .

Some days ago. I was discussing with a friend and she said and i quote. ” making it in this shit hole country is so hard especially as the recession is becoming worse by day.   I tried to let her understand that her greatness is not tied to the economic situation of the country.

The economy might not be friendly, but then there are still people breaking records.

There are still folks leading a comfortable life. Recession and economic declination regardless. Their secret is simple. They have discovered who they are  and what they are in possession of.

The next thing was to release it, by putting it into action and they became who they are today. Note: it is not a day’s job and not so easy as well.  Whoever tells you otherwise is only  trying to deceive you and doesn’t mean well for you. It requires commitment, patience and hardwork.

But  the good news is  that it is quite possible and achieveable. We all desire to be great, but the bitter truth is that greatness  doesn’t come by hoping, it comes by determination, hardwork and Persistence

. If you can’t do any of the mentioned. then am sorry, Achieving greatness may be a night mare for you. Having known what unleashing greatness entails,  this, let’s look at some factors that will enable you achieve it.

Effective ways to unleash the greatness in you.

Leverage on every on every opportunity.


Don’t get so worked up on your set back to the point of getting your whole energy sapped. Don’t spend much time figuring out why it couldn’t work the way you presume. But rather spend more time in finding out other ways to make it work. See every disappointment as a motivating factor, see every failure as an opportunity in disguise.

Amidst of every disappiontment, there had risen heroes who rather than blame people or situations around,  topped up their game by  using the disapointment to  their advantage. You a’int an exception too. You can do that as well. Let your failure motivate you and not set you back.

Ignore every limitation

Have you ever observed? Each time you try to do something new, there is always this fear of uncertainity that tends to draw you back.

you can never know  your strength till you try a new adventure. Your limitation could be your weakness, that mindset  that your a’int competent enough.

That mindset that you a’int in possession of the right quality. This could be your limitations. But i have to remind you this, you don’t need to be perfect or flawless to embark on any project.

Check the life history of the world’s renowned men and women, they all started from a scratch. they all began by  discovering  who they are, their purpose in life and how to achieve that. With consistency, they gradually became better till they rose towards fulfilling their accomplishments.

Don’t be afraid to take risk

Am sure you must have heard of the slogan. It is almost risky not to take a risk in life. Yes because life itself is a risk.

Each and every day comes with its own uncertaintity. We wake up each day uncertain of what fate actually holds for us, or the likely misfortune we might face. But then, we still wouldn’t want our breathe to seize. we still wish to explore life outside and

Embark on a project or journey,  we always desire to  try out new adventures irrespective of its outcome. This is life. So in essense, stop leaving in fear. Stop admitting negativity. Admit to your self that even if you fail, you wouldn’t have to regret your decision, but it will serve as a way to improve and make your self better. that will help you in  Overcoming your fears.

be mindful of your environment

Don’t allow your self get stuck when things a’int moving in your present location.

Sometimes take a decision to make an adjustment. Even if it means relocating.  It is not moving here, fine!! But have you tried other places? the rule of success demands You always be in motion and not remain stagnant. As long as positive result is guaranteedJust make sure you develop a new plan or idea.  Always endeavour to be around positive minded people. One of the most significant factor associated with failure comes as a result of negative influence.

Bad communication brings about Set back. You need people who would inspire you via their successful life. you need a role model.  people  who would always ignite hope in you. and not people who derives joy in lamenting over their situations constantly. Without any effort to change the status quo.
