“Happy 50th Birthday to The Catalyst, Lanre Olusola” was sent to me everywhere on Wednesday the 31st, when I turned 50! It was a great day indeed and I was humbled by the love from everyone. I thought to myself, Wow I am actually 50 years today!
It was Steve Jobs who said, you can ONLY join the dots backwards. And over the past few months, weeks and days, I have critically looked at the last 50 years of my life and joined the dots backwards and for this reason, over the next 50 days, beginning from today, I will share 50 of the Most Significant Lessons I have Learnt in the last 50 Years of my Life. These 50 significant lessons are very powerful principles that I’ve seen at work in the lives of the world’s greatest achievers (dead or alive).
These Wisdom Nuggets are birthday gifts from me to you. I pray that they bring you jubilee, liberty and empowerment to “be all that you were born to be”.
DAY 1 – 1st September 2017
1. Lesson – Be Original. Know and Be Your Authentic Self.
Ask and find the answer to the question “Who am I? The Greatest teacher that I know Jesus, taught His followers (disciples) the concept of identity when he asked them:
“Who do men say I am?”
“Who do you say I am?”
You can’t allow others and things from people to media, to your desires etc label and define who you are. You were created with an Authentic Identity and given a divine name. Your identity separates and differentiates you from others. You MUST Discover your Identity to become your truest self
There is nothing that matters on earth that does not have a Brand, Name and/or Unique Identity. What is yours?
Stay connected for the next 49 days as we go on this life transforming ride of knowledge and empowerment.
