Success: Mastering the Art of Surprises

Wonder how to deal with those twists and turns in the journey to success?
Get your notebook out as your coach, Adeola gives you the insider take on it



Have you ever been faced with a very critical situation in your life

where you are at a cross road and need to decide whether or not to go

on and whether to keep fighting or letting everything just go


Its on those occasions where you literally see all your pre-planned

life solutions fly out the window just because it seems none of them

is practical enough to deal with your ‘particular’ situation at the

moment. Where everyone just ‘doesn’t seem to understand’ why this is

different from any other incident faced by anyone ever before because

its a ‘peculiar’ case.

Well, welcome to the world of surprises, things don’t happen to people

in the exact same way, with the exact same factors and definitely not

at the exact same time frame. I guess that’s why we are all amazing in

our own special way!

Great motivational speakers and writers often advise that when faced

with a difficult situation, the first best bet is to clearly define

what the exact problem is (if it really is a problem). Get a piece of

paper and write out all possible solutions and i’ld suggest you add

are that before you complete that list, you’ll find an answer. Writing

helps with clarity and clarity is a very first step to getting a


If after your list things still seem a little foggy, just leave

everything as is, go to sleep and let your subconscious mind work on

the rest. Sleeping over your problems seems like an absurd way to

handle a problem yet it works amazingly. I guess that’s thanks to

great brain waves at work yet with no distractions whatsoever.

I’m writing this more from a personal experience, I have tried it and

trust me, it really does work.

Keep on succeeding!
