When the convener of TEDx Abayi was giving his final speech at the event, he said something significant.
While they were searching for speakers who would speak at the event, five people he spoke to mentioned my name.
He googled my name and checked me out on social media. Then he reached out. On Friday evening was my first time of seeing him.
As at today, attaching TEDx speaker to my bio means a lot.
It’s an international platform. Given the rules that guide giving a speech, it’s noteworthy that not any kind of person can be showcased on the platform.
I deliberately chose a topic with 5 keywords and made it “keyword-dense.”
People going TEDx platform to search for speeches. I want to pop up when they search for changing, future, building, ideological and movements.
I chose to speak on “Changing The Future Through Building Ideological Movements.”
Secondly, when the video is uploaded, it’s going to serve as a material for credibility when people seek me out to speak at their events.
Just to let you know. I’ve been nominated to speak at two TEDx events already.
As I’ve always shared, it’s not by prayers alone. It’s not by saying that you’re great at what you do.
It’s by spirituality, hardwork, and effective systems.
You want to differentiate yourself from the rest of the world and stand out distinctively?
You’ve got to develop the art and science of influential leadership.
For years I’ve focused keenly on doing just that.
Below are what to do…
1. Take your branding efforts seriously.
In addition to defining my message, niche and audience, I decided to work on my executive presence. Jane Oma is an expert at this.
From my profile picture to how I carry myself, it’s a deeply psychological practice.
People connect emotionally with brands more than being logical.
If there’s nothing else, focus on emotional connections with your audience.
This is premised on how you understand them and speak their language.
2. Viciously communicate your ideologies.
No excuse anymore. The internet is here.
Email. Blogging. Social media. Facebook bot.
With the internet, is so easy to wake up from anywhere in the world and shoot your stories, perspectives, ideologies, and your lifestyle.
Think global. Your greatness is beyond your street.
3. Build community.
Your success is amplified within the context of community.
If you want to go far, you need community. They’re people who believe in the message you’re spreading and to whom you’re famous.
They’re the ones your message is helping to transform their lives.
They’re the ones who mention your name in places that matter.
You need them. They need you.
What’s more? If you see yourself as a leader of a cult of a powerful community, it makes all the difference.
4. Commit to relentless improvement of your brain power.
If you don’t, you go stale and the future has no place for you.
Invest in your mind via books you read voraciously. Invest in being in the circle of masterminds who stretch the muscles of your creativity.

L. A Prisoners Infect Themselves With Coronavirus To Get Early Release (VIDEO)
A group of silly L.A area prison inmates were very eager to contract the dreaded coronavirus .
They attempted this because they believed that would trigger their ticket out of prison.
According to the L.A. County Sheriff Alex Villanueva who made the startling revelation Monday, said about twenty-four (24) inmates at the Pitchess Detention Center in Castaic attempted (and somewhat succeeded, apparently) to infect themselves way back in mid-April 2020.
The Sheriff revealed that their department saw an increase in spike in confirmed cases out of nowhere.
He said that when they investigated, they found a high number of inmates living in one block of the prison appeared to be deliberately trying to infect each other with COVID-19 any way they could from behind bars.
When Alex Villanueva played the surveillance footages he and his team combed through carefully , and it showed several inmates hanging out in a common area and passing around what Alex described as a hot cup of water, as well as one face mask they’d each put on all in hopes of getting sympathy from a judge to spring them from the facility and let them go home.
But it turns out, their little ploy worked but, only halfway.
Villanueva reported that 21 of the inmates (out of 50 in the block) caught the ‘Coronavirus.
“What they won’t catch is a break” said the Sheriff.

His kids schooled in England. His wife just returned from a 3 month UK stay. His daughter gave birth to his grandchild in Spain (made in Spain), yet
