Someone asked me, what makes me so sure that Ayade will deliver on His promises?
I thought of the Garment Factory completed, but a problem came to mind, do this person know the content of the Garment Factory? Has he any imaginary idea about what a Garment Factory is? Has he made a personal visit to the Garment Factory to really appreciate the Idea, Value and worth? What this man know is a Taylor workshop.
I thought of the Superhighway and Deep Sea Port, the Rice City and the Calabar Pharmaceutical Factory, the Embedded Power plants and many others. And to this man, the imagination was out of place and in him lay a mind that have no light and need me to the shine light, on it.
Where then do I get that light? My thoughts were roving wild. Seeing a man who cannot be blamed for the question. Will talk about what his imagination cannot hold not make it even more difficult?
I asked him slowly, why do you always come out when I call you? He said, “Because I know with or without money you buy me a beer. You have a kind heart and always ready to give.” Have you not been disappointed enough not to trust anyone? I asked him again. He said, “You have made enough efforts to prove otherwise.”
Good, I said, what therefore, makes me sure that Ayade will deliver on his promises is because:
1. He has absolute Confidence in Himself.
The secret is like, Robert Collier will say, “All over the world, in every walk of life, people are eagerly seeking for someone to follow. They want someone else to do their thinking for them; they need someone to hearten them to action; they like to have someone else on whom to lay the blame when things go wrong; they want someone big enough to share the glory with them when success crowns his efforts.”
2. His Ideas and Dreams open the horizon of Desires in us and create exact picture of the real future we all imagine.
For Ayade to instil the confidence in us, He must have utter confidence in himself. His words, actions, deeds, thinking, steps, character and focus must be directed towards that which make him invincible, the consciousness of his power.
3. Putting no limit upon his own capacities, therefore, he has no limit.
Emerson wrote: “There is one mind common to all individual men. Every man is an inlet to the same and to all of the same. He that is once admitted to the right of reason is made a freeman of the whole estate. What Plato has thought, he may think; what a saint has felt, he may feel; what at any time has befallen any man, he can understand. Who hath access to this Universal Mind, is a party to all that is or can be done, for this is the only and sovereign agent.”
Finally, I told him, believe it or not, the greatest shortcut to prosperity is to LIVE IT! Ayade is helping us Live it as we also advance towards it.
While prosperity attracts, poverty repels. Orison Swett said, “To be ambitious for wealth and yet always expecting to be poor, to be always doubting your ability to get what you long for, is like trying to reach East by traveling West. There is no philosophy which will help a man to success when he is always doubting his ability to do so, and thus attracting failure.”
Speak Ayade, Think Cross River!
