Beauty Of Bonding

It's a greatday! Getting to OR Tambo International Airport from another trip and discovered the ever energetic and receptive #MeetingsAfrica17 Stand which is an annual tradition for me as a Meetings Incentives Conferences and Exhibitions (M.I.C.E) professional who organises learning and development events, seminars, conferences and Public Relations (PR) Packages designed to advance Africa.

As I arrived OR Tambo I felt a bond of sorts with the energy I noticed at the Meetings Africa stand an expression that all Africans should deploy daily regardless of our nationality we are ONE Africa.

All Africans should see events that encourage our unity as a needed commodity this is why I am pleased to be looking forward to BOND DAY at Meetings Africa, Interacting with several persons and professionals in the meetings and tourism industry.

Inspiring, in conclusion, is the meaning of bonding: "join or be joined securely to something else, especially by means of an adhesive substance, heat, or pressure."

Let us together join forces regardless of the situations that plague our continent, this space that looks like a revolver can only unlock possibilities when we remain in unison= "uni-meaning One" and "son from Song" means united in one song or voice for our continental good.

ABUJOBURG: ABUJA AND JOBURG IS BORN!

Abuja Africa most populous country’s capital –Nigeria built mainly in the 1980s. Located in the central part of Nigeria. It officially became Nigeria's capital on 12 December 1991, replacing Lagos, though the latter remains the country's most populous city. The indigenous inhabitants of Abuja are the Gbagyi (Gwari) as the major language, Mada, Ganagana, Koro, Mada, etc. Abuja's geography is defined by Aso Rock, a 400-metre monolith left by water erosion. The Presidential Complex, National Assembly, Supreme Court and much of the city extend to the south of the rock. Zuma Rock, a 792-metre monolith, lies just north of the city on the road to Kaduna State.
At the 2006 census, the city of Abuja had a population of 776,298, making it one of the ten most populous cities in Nigeria. 

Johannesburg Jozi, Jo'burg, eGoli, and Joeys, and abbreviated as JHB) is the largest city in South Africa. It is the provincial capital of Gauteng, which is the wealthiest province in South Africa. The city is one of the 50largest urban agglomerations in the world and is also the world's largest city not situated on a river, lake, or coastline. The city was named and established in 1886 following the discovery of gold on what had been a farm.

Most recently South African Airways' (SAA) launched flights to Abuja, as a second gateway in Nigeria the airline said. 
The inaugural flight took off with a contingent of senior government officials and guests on board - proving the local and international popularity of the route. 
The flight departed on Tuesday 26 January at 23:55 from Johannesburg via Lagos and landed in Abuja Wednesday morning 07:30.
The flight was greeted with a traditional welcome ceremony as guests entered into Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport.

SAA's entry points into Nigeria is Lagos, to where it flies daily and now Abuja, with Abuja flight enabling the movement of travellers as well as goods between Southern and West Africa.  
The three weekly non-stop flights between Johannesburg and Abuja will operate with modern Airbus 330-200 aircraft, offering SAA Business class luxury and Economy class comfort, with the latest  in-flight entertainment content.
“What better way to celebrate the New Year and 2016, which promises to be a great year for continued growth on the continent, by adding a second point in Nigeria – one of the most popular and profitable routes in the SAA African route network. Introducing Abuja adds more travel options for our customers, especially for the business community, and enhances our footprint on the continent,” says Aaron Munetsi, SAA Acting Chief Commercial Officer.
Returning to South Africa after this super-good launch leaves me looking forward to my next trip to Abuja where I do business, speak, coach and offer PR services for projects towards the advancement of this special continent am most delighted to be a part of for life. I am an African.

COUNTDOWN 6,5,4,3,2,1


This morning I got up with gratitude and asked friends and family if there was anything or things they were grateful for today been the very last day of the year.
Everyone had at least one thing to be thankful for from- Life, Health, Family, Work, Challenges amongst others. One thing I will never trivialize on my gratitude list annually is people. Progress, purpose, productivity are only possibly through people.

Every expert was once a beginner which is why your journey will always be different from you family or friends. 

Someone put it this way; “Not everyone will understand your Journey. That’s Fine. It’s Not Their Journey to Make Sense Of. It’s Yours”.

The Word Countdown means-the period of time leading up to a significant event and the procedures carried out during this time. Another meaning is an act of counting numerals in reverse order to zero, especially before the launching of a rocket or missile.

With this two definitions in mind as this year draws to an end am most delighted New Zealand, Australia is already in tomorrow or the New Year meaning if some humans already arrived in tomorrow we need only prepare for it today as we countdown:
Six (6) according to the holy book (Bible) man was created on the 6th day thus there is something special about the number six (6) so all humans should see possibilities the year approaching holds.
A CPA (Mike Simmonds)brother to my consultant colleague, facilitator & Training Associate Rich Simmonds asked me how this year 2015 went for me. My response was “It truly was a challenging Year, regardless of the challenges seems to be one of the best year thus far”. Five (5) has been said to hold some strength or grace in it. Taking it down to the next number four (4) could be said to represent balance. Take a moment to think about it- Tables, cars, structures everything that has requires some form of balance rests on four legs.
Succeeding in this world requires some form of spirituality –mine is centered in God who is the Head of the trinity (God, father and Holy-spirit) thus Three (3) represents the trinity.
The lowest number that can make up a team is two (2) people and lastly One (1) is the number for Oneness- should I say “unity” an essential commodity we all need to keep our focus single.

Throughout the New Year let the essence of this countdown stay with you from 6-Man, 5-Grace (Strength), 4-Balance, 3- Trinity (Spirituality-God, Father and Son), 2-Team, 1-Unity (Focus).

See that you keep your identity as man (human being) who knows or find who you were designed to be.

Gracefully go forward in strength with Balance remembering without some form of spirituality you are empty.
Every-one of us succeeds through help provided by others in some-way. Search out team-players (partners/people) who will aid your success and keep your focus single.
Enjoy every day your new year holds.


To your rise, soar and success

WHAT A NOAH'S ARK!

Africa is a beautiful continent; terrific cities spread across the entire continent that I look forward to traveling annually as an African Adventurer, Author, professional speaker, team- building Consultant and peak performance coach.

Checked into hotels sixty (60) plus days one year.  When you want to get the best out of anything, getting to define it makes finding it easier.  The English dictionary definition of hotel is an establishment providing accommodation, meals and other services for travellers and tourists.

Service must be excellent morning noon and night for it to be completely excellent. The evening I arrived Noah’s Ark Hotels and stepped into the beautiful lobby my hope (having only positive expectations) sadly was short lived as “communication challenge created discontent within me that I questioned the service they had to offer,” however after been persuaded by a young friend who was kind to have driven me from several hours that night after battling with his car’s battery which had to be jumpstarted due to a near car-jacking situation that was saved due to the alarm fitted unto it.

RO (his initials) suggested we look at their rooms and bathroom, which I agreed and viewed a suite that was different from where I was taken to after checking into Noah’s Ark.

Any hotel or bed and breakfast, lodge or Guest House I stay in are assessed by a good bed, beautiful breakfast and service delivery not to mention the bathroom which leads me to the experience side of Noah’s Ark a name that reminds me of order and not chaos as biblical history recorded.

The reverse was the case at this hotel. Upon arriving at the breakfast table I was looking forward to buffet breakfast since I saw table was set, the only challenge was I was told to return in 15minutes only to get a phone call that my breakfast was ready 30minutes later.

Then it dawned on me when I got to the table it was a la carte-slice of bacon, some mushrooms, and toasted bread. I ended up not having eggs since eggs made for me were made without my opinion how I wanted it. The waiter informed me their chef said he couldn’t make another as they had run out of eggs, same excuse made about sausages.

I got back to my room in a bid to go have a bath and found out there was no soap in their guest accessories mini-basket and shockingly a worm was crawling in the bath tub I was looking forward to seating to have a good wash.

Well, looks as if something that was in Noah’s Ark in Biblical history records was obvious in the bathroom and eggs and sausages that were expected to be in abundance in this Noah’s Ark are lacking.
Guess you will learn from my experience-never judge a Bed and breakfast (B&B) Lodge, guesthouse, hotel by its name of claim, unless you are willing to taste-experience all types of services like this one that left me thinking-What A Noah’s Ark!

LAW OF CONTROL

 In my new book co-authored with Brian Tracy, World #1 Personal Development Coach,Consultant and trainer; There is a “Law of Control” that says you feel positive about yourself to the degree to which you feel you are in control of your own life. It also says that you feel negative about yourself to the degree to which you feel you are not in control of any part of your life.
Psychologists call this “Locus of Control Theory.” They say that each person feels that their life is controlled by either internal or external factors. A person with an internal locus of control feels that he or she is in charge and is making the decisions that determine the direction of his or her life.
The person with an external locus of control, on the other hand, feels that others are in charge, and that he or she is controlled by external factors and influences about which he can do very little. He often feels that his life is controlled by his boss, his bills, his childhood experiences, and his current marriage or relationship.
Having an internal or an external locus of control is the difference between feeling empowered and positive or powerless and negative. And both are states of mind over which you have considerable control. 


In order to be happy and to enjoy high levels of self-confidence, you have to organize your life in such a way that you feel very much in control of what happens to you. And nowhere is this more important than in your ability to get the things you want through others.
You need the help of other people to accomplish almost anything. To accomplish anything worthwhile, you need the help of lots and lots of other people. To achieve your full potential as a human being, you need to consciously structure your entire life so that you are surrounded by harmonious, cooperative relationships. Your job is to be able to draw upon the organized efforts of many people to help move you in the direction that you want to go.
You really have no choice but to become very good in your ability to deal effectively with others. This feeling of self-efficacy, being competent and successful with others, is essential to your feelings of self-esteem and personal power. 
"Personal relationships are the fertile soil from which all advancement, all success, all achievement in real life grows." Says ;Ben Stein    
Indeed Cooperation is the key to success in life.
