Power of Taking Action!

Image Source: Internet

                                                 Nothing moves until you move

                                                          Duyilemi A. Felix 

Success requires action. Intentions without expression lead to depression. Motion creates emotion. Movement creates momentum. Faith creates feelings. Action births reactions.

This principle explains that to be great, you need to take massive action. You need to take prayerful risk. You can’t sit in a place and expect to be great. You have to do something. People, situations, and resources usually draw to the man on the move. If you need to write, then sit down and write. I haven’t seen any book that has written itself, including this article you are reading! Books are written by people!


"Take action along the path of your purpose in life, you don’t have to be great to begin; you need to begin to be great."  Zig Ziglar

Don’t second-guess yourself. Don’t be a doubting Thomas. Life is too short to go through  undecided. You can’t allow fear to be in the driver’s seat of your life. Let faith, not fear rule your life. Fear analyses. Faith actualizes. Fear asks “who is there?” Faith responds “I”

Take action, beginning is half-done.

                                        “Inch by inch everything is cinch” Said Robert Schuler.

Can we meet you, Sir?

He is devoted to learning, living and teaching scriptural success principles to help people achieve an enduring success.

Our Focus this Month is on Success, you have written a number of books on Success Principles, how will you define success?

Success is the progressive accomplishment of a God-given goal.

Some people think success is not meant for them, what do you think sir?

What a man will become starts from his inside. For someone to fall for the lie of the devil that success is not meant for him is to be grounded in life. God has not created anyone to be nobody. Everyone He created is meant to be somebody. To be successful in life, you must believe you can.

Some have tried many times without hitting it, what is your piece of advice?

Big shots today were small shots yesterday who kept shooting. Persistence is one of the greatest secrets of success. Trying times are not the times to stop trying, but to keep trying. If you don’t give up, you will ultimately succeed. The secret of success is to keep at it.

What is the difference between success and failure?

Success has to do with the pursuit and accomplishment while failure has to do with quitting. Everyone God created has the capacity to succeed. A man is a failure when he quits trying. And you know what? Failure is a compulsory course in the School of Success. If you are not failing, you are not growing.  Failure is the last step to success. Failure is meant to be a temporary event. It is only quitters that ultimately fail.

What are the qualities that make people Successful?

 Qualities that help people succeed include:


  • Positive attitude


  •  Integrity


  •  Diligence


  • Team spirit


  • Faith


  • Stickability


  • Skill


  • Learning


  • Right company among others.




Can everybody succeed?

Success is meant for everybody. Don’t ever believe the lie that only a few are destined to succeed. If anybody can, then you can!

In your journey to success Sir, how have you been able to handle challenges that come along the way?

Challenges are the food of champions. If you don’t like challenges, you don’t like success. I have faced and still facing challenges because there are different devils for different levels. But what helped and still helping me are faith in God, positive attitude towards difficulties, persistence, focus on where I am going not what I am going through, passion for my mission, building a team, and so on.

What is final advice to the regular visitors to my blog?

Dr. Felix Duyilemi is a blessing to this generation. I have known him for some time and I can recommend him and his work for anyone who desires to be unstoppable until success smiles on him. Keep reading from him and seek the opportunity to listen to him live. You can never remain the same.

Your Final words, sir.

Success is a journey, not a destination. You never arrive in success. You must continue to break your own record because you have only yourself to compete with. God bless you richly.

Thank you Sir for your time.

You are welcome

How to CONVERT Hard times To Hard  CURRENCY
How to convert Hard Times To Hard Currency
Duyilemi Akindele Felix

  “Tough Times Never Last, tough people  do”

Robert  H. Schuler


obody can deny the impact of the current economic recession. Everybody seems to be affected one way or the other. 


In Nigeria, where I currently live, workers’ salaries in many states haven’t been paid for months, there have been massive layoffs in some sectors leading to joblessness, the rising price of dollars and its attendant inflation on the prices of goods and services are all visible impact of the current imbroglio. Many people have now cut their budgets to the barest minimal.


Also, many small businesses are now in the survival mode and some have completely short down.


However, as terrible as the situation is, many budding entrepreneurs have capitalized on the needs of the moment to generate new ideas, businesses, opportunities, products and services.


Technically,  Recessions are regarded as periods of ‘creative destruction’, during which some businesses and industries decline, often terminally, while new ideas, technologies, products and industries emerge and become the driving force of subsequent economic activity and growth.


In this article, I choose to focus on the solution. Napoleon Hill the Author of ‘Think and Grow Rich’ said, “Every adversity contains the seed of opportunity.” How do we turn a recession to a progression?



        Turning Recession To Progression:


What makes some people to breakdown, makes some other people to break through”

                                            Duyilemi A. Felix.


I have developed a model which I discussed in Warri, Nigeria, at a Business Summit recently. Let’s look into this using RECESSION as an acronym.


  The Duyilemi Akindele Felix’ Model (DAFM)™:


R- Re-think


    “Problemsare the food for the brain”



  • Think Opportunity.


  • Think Change.


  • Think growth.


One of the benefits recession offers is the opportunity to think differently


Entrepreneurs like Andrew Carnegie, Thomas Edison, and John D.Rockefeller all emerged from the great recession of 1890s


They weren’t part of the majority who sees recession has the opportunity to catch depression, but saw it as opportunity to tap into the creative geniuses in them to drive economic activity and growth.


Every adversity contains the seed of opportunity, if you think right enough.


E- Explore.


 New opportunity demands and needs usually emerge during recession. Your current line of business might have been made irrelevant by the downturn. Instead of hanging up, ask/ brainstorm on the current needs of the people in your neighbourhoods.  Explore your environment, scout for needs, and scout for opportunities. When you find a need, you have found a business.


C- Create


Creativity has been defined as effective surprise. After you have explored your environment, create new products and services.  Problems are the food for the brain. Engage your brain to devise solutions to the already established problems. You can also build a team of creative thinkers to look into the new needs and demands of your environment.


E- Execute


There is a difference between creativity and innovation. Creativity is generation of new ideas, concepts, or products, innovation is taking creative ideas to the market. Your creative endeavor is never complete if you don’t execute it. Your ideas could just be what will lead the country out of recession! Believe in yourself, bring new products and services to the markets/ execute new ideas today.


S- Strategize

Success is execution of strategies. The old business model might not work in the face of current economic realities.  Strategic thinking and action is the way out. Find a way to meet people’s needs at low cost, better quality and faster delivery.




Don’t be fixated on what you know. Replace something that is not working for what you think might work. Substitute an old way of thinking into the new way of seeing and perceiving reality. Don’t fight change, accept it, use it and benefit from it.




 Add values to existing products or services. Think innovation. Ask yourself, what is the better way to look at this?  Engage in holistic innovation-style: innovate on products, processes and on your current business model.


O- Organize


 Organize your existing resources to drive growth. Your existing resources include your skills, your education, your past experiences and anyone in your contact. Find a way to push forward with what you have. Organize your knowledge to create a new line of business or services.   


N- Network


Team up with other passionate entrepreneurs to create bigger opportunity. Form a network of passionate, positive and upbeat individuals who are willing to turn problems into big opportunities. Your network determines your net worth. 


Opportunities are limitless for anyone who can think. There is always a market for imagination irrespective of economic realities. 


Some people become depressed because of recession, while some are impressed with the opportunity to create new realities through creative ideas. You can do it.



Hope these ideas help you.
