41da3208-325f-4621-ae31-3c26dd035e90

How do you view yourself now? What about in the next 5years? What do you want to do in future? Some people tend to under-estimate themselves because they failed to visualize who they want to become in life. You need to understand that, whatever work you set your eyes on, to be in life, requires hard work and determination. Be encouraged, see yourself doing it. You need to form a clear mental image of the person you want to become.
Today on Exclusives with SammytheAuthor, an Inspiring Ghanaian Entrepreneur shares with us, his life story and career as an Entrepreneur. Check the Interview below.
So tell us. Who is Dzagbletey Nenebie Faith Adabah Julius.?
Ans: Faith Julius is a 26-year-old young man who graduated from the university of Ghana-Legon with a first degree in Economics and Information Studies. He also has a background in Human Resource Management from the same university. Julius sees himself as a catalyst for individual and organizational growth and development. He finds his fulfillment in helping others, especially the youth, to identify their purposes in life and to go all out for them (their purposes).
Wow.. That’s nice.. I understand you are the founder/CEO of Spread Aid International which is an NGO. Ermm.. Tell us more about it and How did you come up with the idea or concept?
Ans: Thank you very much Sammy for the opportunity. I see it as a great privilege to lead the entire membership of SpreadAid International as the Executive Director.
The journey of SpreadAid International started way back during my first year, second term of SHS level of education.
It actually started with the name “GreenAid“. It was a study group that involved students from about 5 schools. SpreadAid International, today, is a legalized- youth-based NGO, with her main focus on the provision of quality education, youth empowerment and aiding to eradicate poverty through the provision of basic necessities to deprived communities with the vision of “Putting Back Smiles on Faces”.

Yea..I have noticed some of your great works and even the impacts your making through the events your organization puts up..So let me ask..What was your mission at the outset?
Ans: Our burning desire was and is to help people, especially those in rural communities. Our focus is mainly directed towards the youth because we have the strong belief that if we want this generation and the unborn generation to be better, then there is the need to invest in the youth. These are our mission statements.
1) Promote excellence in education.
2) Advocate for and support the less privileged in society.
3) Unearth and build talents in the youth.
4) Undertake volunteer programs.

Thats nice. So what are some of the Impacts made ever since your initiative came into the scene?
Ans: In general, SpreadAid International has positively impacted the lives of over 6000 people in her operation for 2 years (officially). This has been done through our annual projects listed below.
Project 5000: Through this project over 2500 lives have been impacted in about 12 schools in 6 out of “previously” 10 regions in Ghana.
The aim of this project is in the direction of the 4th Goal of the global vision (SDGs) which is the provision of Quality education, which is first on our mission statement. SpreadAid International believes that in order to live a permanent impact on individuals, then the first thing to look out for is education (training their minds).
Through this project we distribute stationery to students and also address some basic needs of the schools which are within our reach. The main aim of Project 5000 is to encourage the young ones out there that they can actually become whoever they want to become if they don’t give up on themselves and aren’t tired of pushing themselves forward ( giving the essence of why they should be educated and not only schooled).

Build the Child Today, Save Tomorrow” Upon a research conducted by some members of the organization, the findings revealed that for most students, before they sit to start writing their final exams (BECE, in this case), they fail before the actual exams begin. Most of these students fail not because they aren’t prepared academically but because they aren’t often prepared psychologically- the fear of failure actually fails them.
This project which stated in 2016 with the aim of preparing BECE candidates for their exams have impacted over 500 students in two communities- Ashaiman and Mallam.

SpreadTalk: This is an annual conference held for young entrepreneurs and potential young entrepreneurs to share ideas on how to either start their journey or how to overcome some challenges they face along the way. Speakers are mostly young entrepreneurs who are doing well in their various fields. Last year, which was the third edition ( sitting over 100 young ones), had among others, Kafui Danku ( film-maker, author and Goodwill Ambassador) as one of the speakers. The feedbacks we get from attendees have always being positive with great testimonies of the aftermath every edition of SpreadTalk.

We have been to these orphanages more than twice; Hope Children’s Home ( Haatso), Village of Hope ( Cape Coast) and Rising Star ( Dodowa) totally over 700 young ones we shared love with. We have also been to Ankaful Psychiatric Hospital to provide some of their needs and to share some time with them.

8c471aa6-9fd5-4176-ac05-a6b3f5762659

Finally, we have collaborations with other organizations and associations to embark on Projects, the recent one is with the Keta Naspa on their Project dubbed “Stay in School” where we provided stationery to about 200 students.
Awesome. I applaud this initiative for that. So tell me, any challenges so far..? Anything you wanna share?
Ans: It is an opened-secret that one of the major challenges facing youth set-ups like SpreadAid International, who are striving to do good in our country and beyond is limited resources (mainly funding) to undertake projects.
Amazingly, SpreadAid International is made up of about 90% of University students and fresh graduates but alot has been done through the little they have. Just as it is said in our local dialect, ” it’s the Child who starts claiming a tree that deserves a push”, we call on all to come on board to support the good work that is being done through Spread Aid International. Individually, we can’t do much but together we can achieve so much.

495106b1-a037-4d19-96a1-64f325200942

We call on all media partners who would want to join this good work being done to come on board to project to the world what we can all do to make the world a better place. There are evidences of our works on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter with the name Spread Aid International.
What do you look for in an employee/member in your organization?
This work is really a sacrificial work. If you don’t find fulfillment in it, my advise is that you don’t do it. Most times the only fuel that keeps you going is when you remember the smile you have been able to put on someone’s face. My members should be selfless and very persistent ( the result wouldn’t come in a day- the need to keep on keeping on). Above all an undying believe in the promises of God ( the compass for our operation).
If you had one piece of advice to someone just starting out, what would it be?
Why do you want to do what you are doing or about doing? This question is extremely imperative because there are many youth out there who are just doing what they are doing because someone is doing same and either succeeding or otherwise. It always gets to that point where the only motivation to continue is to ask yourself that question. If you don’t have an answer to it, trust me, you would give up.
And also let me take this opportunity to thank all Spreaders who believed in this vision and went all out to see it’s manifestation. Thanks to all individuals who have and continue to support this organization in divers ways to see her (SpreadAid) where she is now. Many thanks to you SammytheAuthor for this opportunity of letting the world know that an amount of good is done in SpreadAid International which they need to hear about. Special thanks to these two individuals who have been with me in the thin and thicks- Raymond Okyere-Forson and Mawuenam Priscialla Aheto. I greatly appreciate you all.

You are humbly welcome. And I wish you well in all your endeavors. Keep shining and reaching out…Stay Blessed.

The Zeal to Succeed

swamisivananda390760

How can one be successful? What does it take to attain the maximum level of success? Do we go to school to be successful? These are some of the question I asked myself whiles growing up and I believe some of you have once in your lifetime asked these same questions.

 

 Attaining the maximum level of success in life is not an easy journey; it takes time, perseverance, hard work and determination. The journey to success has got a narrow road; you are meant to face challenges, pains, and disappointments. The success we see, brings many loss. You have to hold on to whatever it is that you have set on your eyes on; the dreams. There is nothing impossible for you to do. Believe in yourself, set your paths right and stay focus. Remember, believing in oneself plays a vital role in shaping your future. It also paves the way for you to be successful. As the saying goes “A journey of a thousand miles, begins with one step”. Remember to put God first in everything you do. He is and will always be the reason for the season. Never forget that! Although, some people might be convince to think, education is the key to success. Well, I think I have to dispute that. A Motivational speaker and a Pastor, Dr. Myles Munroe stated in one of his motivational quotes that “The Bible does not say, a man’s education makes room for him, but that his gift does. Education is not the key to success, it doesn’t guarantee anything; it is your gift that is the key to success” And come to think of it, what is the source of every gift that we possess? Have you for once asked yourself this question? As humans we tend to put our trust in our fellow humans; thinking they are our source of wealth and everything we are made of. No, not at all! As humans, we need to understand that, “Every good and perfect gift that we possess is from above, coming down from the Father of Heavenly lights, with whom there is no change  or shifting shadow- James 1:17”

In our walks of life, we may find ourselves in temporal situations and we might think, that is the end of the road. Remember the way you think goes a long way to either make you or destroy you. Change the way feel about yourself. Just because your folks are succeeding in their endeavours, does not necessarily mean, you are a failure. There is so much more inside of you. Never allow any negativity to bring you down. You alone have the power to change your life and nobody else. Always have the zeal to succeed, be determined to get there and also be Achievement Oriented. I’m very much sure, you have heard of the adage “Procrastination is a thief of time” Oh yes, it is!! What needs to be done, has to be done well and immediately. Stop postponing things that needs to be done NOW. “Time and tide waits for no man” says an old adage. Resist from being Indolent and start working towards your dreams. Think Big and Work towards it. After all, God is not against Big thinking, But He is against you thinking you are bigger than anyone else. Think success and you will be successful. Be Achievement-Oriented. You Can. You Will. Make it Happen

                     5 Ways to Be Successful

1: Prayer:  The first step it takes to achieve your ultimate goal in life, is by prayer. Prayer answers all things. God in His own infinite wisdom, “Made life simple and plain but we have chosen to make our life very complicated- Ecclesiastes 7:29”. To achieve your aims and ambitions in life, you need to ask God to help you get where you want to be. Never stress yourself trying to make it on your own. You can’t!  As human and as a child of God, you need to “Delight yourself in the Lord and He will give you the desires of your heart”. Remember, it is the blessings of the Lord that makes us wealthy not hard work. Pray always and expect good things to happen. It’s already done.

 

2: Believe in yourself: The greatest way to achieve your ultimate goal in life, is to know yourself. Know your strength. Believing in one’s self goes a long way in helping you shape your future. Success comes to those who believe in their dreams. Most people become reluctant because of past mistakes and failures. The problems are meant to cross your path and challenges are also bound to come, but don’t stay in the filth, move on and stay focus on your dreams. You will achieve if you believe.

 

3: Perseverance: To persevere means to keep on striving. In our daily lives we tend to give up on our dreams, just because of the rejects and let downs we face in life. And yes, I know, to continue pressing on to that which you want to achieve in life, in spite of the difficulty and discouragement is not easy. I know, because I have been there myself, but the truth is, it doesn’t just end there. You will definitely get what you want if you don’t give up. It will take some time for you to realize it but it’s worth it. Keep on persisting and you will surely get to your destination. It’s not very far from here. Just mile away. Be patient. Don’t quit. Remember “Winners never quit and quitters never win”. Go get it.

 

4: Hard work and Determination:  “Hard work pays” as the saying goes. Work hard and be determine to get to where you want to be. Attaining the maximum level of success is not an easy journey, it requires the strong and brave to get there. Remember, you don’t have to be a Doctor, Banker or a Teacher to be successful. No! It doesn’t. It takes a hardworking man to be successful. You can be a salesman and be successful. All it takes is, having the high ability to save. Be courageous and keeping pressing on. You are already there.

 

  5: Set small achievable goals:  As the saying goes “A little drops of water makes a mighty ocean”. Have the courage to do small things with excellence. Learn to create work for yourself. Just a small business you love to engage in. Your success in life, revolves around you. Remember, you don’t have to be great to start, you have to start to be great. Keep yourself busy and active with the little idea you have. Start something and you won’t regret making that decision. It’s just one thought away. You can make it. Start something and it will grow. 

 

The Greatness In You

 

If-You-Never-Try

You are Beautiful, smart, funny, kind; and you are unique. You are never too much and you are always enough. Never allow anyone to tell you otherwise. There is so much greatness in you. God in His own infinite wisdom, instilled in us the potentials we need to make life worth living. Have you for once looked at yourself in a mirror and felt like the world’s most biggest failure? Regardless of who you think you are, you have a lot inside of you. Never under-estimate yourself because of past hurts, mistakes, disappointments you have caused. Feeling inferior in the midst of prominent people doesn’t bring out the greatness in you. Remember, you were not created to live depressed, defeated, guilty, condemned, ashamed or unworthy. You were created to be Victorious. Believe in yourself, take the first step into greatness. Remember, you don’t have to be great to get started but you have to start to be great. If only you can tap into the hidden potentials stacked within you, you will have a lot to give to the world. The only way one can be able to discover his/her true purpose or potentials is by a close relationship with Christ Jesus through Prayer. Whatever it is that is stacked inside of you, will be made known to the world if you believe. Nobody can see the dreams that you got up your sleeves; you have to let the world know who you are.

You must decide if you are going to rob the world or bless it with the rich, valuable, potent, untapped resources locked away within you. Dr Myles Munroe, an Inspirational speaker and a Pastor, in one of his inspirational quotes, stated ” Your conception is proof that there is something finished that you were born to start. Destiny produced you”. You are great and unique in your own special way. Remember, you cannot recover what you cannot discover. Reach out to your dreams through faith, hard work and determination.

Believing in yourself plays a vital role in shaping your future. Take control of your destiny. You are the only one who can make it happen and nobody else. Quit blaming people of your mistakes and failures in life. The fact that some people are succeeding doesn’t make you a failure. Build up your faith in Christ Jesus and ask Him to direct your path. Do your  best and allow Him to do the rest.

Firstly, I want to share with you, a very pathetic message I received from a follower on facebook.

Hello Sammy,

I’m Harriet, a graduate of Ghana Senior High School, Koforidua. I completed last year. Please I have always had a dream of becoming a fashion designer, since childhood but my father insisted that, he wants me to work as an accountant. For me that’s not my field. The reason been that, I am not academically good. I was repeated three times when i got to my second year in high school. It all began sometime ago, at age 10, when i spotted a child being beaten mercilessly by his teacher, just because he failed in his examination; this instilled fear in me. So since then, i developed this strange fear for my teachers in school. So this caused my failure in class anytime i partake in an examination. But my Dad doesn’t know all this, so all he keeps saying is that “Harriet you know I’m an educationist, look at me, I have three B.Sc. three Master’s degree and a PhD to show. So why don’t you take my footsteps, learn hard and become what i want you to be? If all the time you spend on daily in making this rubbish, were converted to your academic work, by now, you would have been on a very good pedestal. Life is not a joke and without a good results, you are going nowhere.”

Ever since he uttered those words to me, i haven’t being myself, i spend time crying, asking myself if, he is really my biological Dad. why can’t he forget about qualifications and support what i do best in; my passion for being a Fashion designer. He even went ahead to burn all the materials i use for my craft. I feel terrible now. I even won an award for “The Most Creative Student” because of my craft but my Dad got hold of it and destroyed it, saying, he wanted me to win an award for “The Best Overall Student” in school”. In fact, I feel horrible, I give up. I feel like committing suicide. Please Help Me.”

Indeed Parents are in the right position to direct the path of their Children but should we always pay heed to whatever decision they take concerning our lives, i mean our career? So what if that isn’t our chosen field? Will it be a sign of disrespect if a child refuses to take whatever career they choose for him/her. After reading this sad story, I became very worried.. Why do some Parent decide to render their wards useless by choosing a job field for them. Parents are to train, take a very good care of, ensure the well-being of their wards but not to choose for them, a job field. Children must be allowed to choose their career path in life. They know the capabilities/skills they possess.

img_7946

Life as we see it, is not a joke. Each and every individual has a purpose to live for, a dream/goal to achieve and a mission to accomplish on this earth. Nobody was created without a purpose or a dream. I was watching a movie some weeks ago which actually talks about the pains and ordeals children go through in the hands of their Parents in the quest for a career path. And in this movie, there was a girl whose dad was a Professor and her mother a businesswoman, and this said girl in question, had the gift/talent of making beads and weaving beautiful baskets but her Dad insisted saying “None of my Children must become poor, its either, you change your mind and find something better doing in life, or you leave my house”. This went on and on, until, one day, the girl couldn’t bear the agony she was going through and committed suicide. So then, whose fault was it? Who caused it? Was it her Dad or herself?

American educator, author, businessman, and keynote speaker, Stephen Covey, in one of his Inspirational quote said “when you engage in a work that taps your talent and fuels your passion-that rises out in a great need in the world that you feel drawn by conscience to meet-therein lies your voice, your calling, your soul’s code”.

Parents need to understand that, you don’t have to be a Doctor, an Accountant or a Teacher to be successful, being a Fashion Designer, a Writer, Musician, can make you Successful. It all depends on how diligent you are with your work.

A Message to the Youth

Your time is limited. So don’t waste it living someone Else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma- which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Never let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most importantly, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Hard work and determination will show your Altitude in life. Never be discouraged. Take control of your destiny. You have a lot to bless the world with; your gifts, skill and all that you have inside of you. You are destined to reign. Follow your passion and you will achieve. You Can..You Will..
