What aspect of your growing up do you think probably contributed to the person you are today?
Well, I really do not understand the question on “ASPECT” but what contributed to the person I am today is largely my Dad. Very early in my life, he introduced me to many things on self-esteem / confidence giving me the freedom to express myself. He emphasized on being responsible and taking the lead because I am the first child.
He will force me to listen to news, read motivational books and watch specific developmental talk show programs. All of these, I believe are growing up experiences that has contributed to who I am and what I do today.
Your profile says you love helping others be, become and find fulfilment in the process. What informed this passion and how do you go about doing this?
What informed my passion for helping people to do, be and become is this strong conviction of the possibility of living ones dream life. This conviction is a result of the knowledge and understanding I have of who God is and His will and intent for man.
Also, because I live my life on purpose, which has given me a beautiful life of joy and fulfilment, it is my desire to really help others and I also see it as a call to spread the good news of a beautiful life we can have in God through Purpose. I do this through my coaching program, Growth Goals.
