Vincent Adeoba spoke on the making of a champion. A champion is a person who has overcome challenges. Becoming a champion isn’t an easy task and requires a lot of hard work.
There are 5 cycles involved in making a champion
VISION- Vision is the picture of the future, it should not be based on the present but the future. Your vision should not look like you at the moment’
ACTION- Action is putting vision into practice. Take risks, invest in your life. Make adequate preparation because hard work is the way to success.
PASSION- Passion is the drive behind your vision. Make excellence your standard. Put in more efforts. Be consistent in what you do, be focused.
THOUGHTS- The greatest success of as mabn is not on the wall but in the deepest recess of the heart, think positively.
CHALLENGES- Life challenges are not stumbling blocks but stepping stones to greatness. They include –discouragement, disappointment, and opposition amongst others.

It’s never too late to become that champion you have always dreamt to become. The greatest form of blindness is to have sight without vision. Your VISION when backed up with proper ACTION and PASSION gives you THOUGHTS that helps you overcome your CHALLENGES, thereby MAKING YOU A CHAMPION.

LEARNERS SUMMIT 2016: CHAMPIONS

EVERY CHAMPION WAS ONCE A LEARNER

Many are ashamed to put the learner sign on their car. They don’t want people to laugh at them. They don’t want to look inferior to people who may see them. Forgetting that everyone was once a learner

Infact, many people you are putting into consideration don’t even know how to drive. They laugh at you because they want to intimidate you

They are afraid you are going ahead of them
Never mind. Amateur status is temporary if you can persist at learning. You will either despise the shame and learn or remain ignorant. Even the greatest athlete, musician, leader or whatever field were once a LEARNER. They are champions today because they persist at learning

Never mind if you have to enrol for a course with people far younger than you in a class. Never mind if you have to buy a book meant for people far below your age. Never mind if you have to get your hands dirty in the process of learning. Never mind even if as a leader your follower needs to put you through something you do not know

Learner status is not something to be ashamed of
It is something to embrace. Learning is continuous be ready to assume the position from time to time on your way to greatness

Keep learning, keep winning
