SEIZE THE MOMENT: Emerging Nigerian Leaders

When last did you speak to someone about becoming great in the tomorrow of your life? When last did you fantasize, blow up plenty air into your imaginations and reassure yourself that you’re born to make a difference? When last did you feel cool after allowing your mind the privilege of roaming the world, feeling like Bill Gates or even, Usain Bolt? You see, imaginations are powerful, they encircle the world. They give you the bragging right that the world belongs to all of us because you get to fly First Class in your mind, and no one bogs you about boarding pass. Is it not amazing how we are so limitless in our minds?

Well, so what should we do? Should we stop dreaming? Should we stop imagining? By no way! But we should do more with the present moment. We cannot be absent in the classes of today and expect to pass in the examinations of tomorrow. Everyday offers us 86,400 golden seconds, to mine. Each second expects, anticipates, and beckons. This yearning of the Seconds’ hands of the clock compels us to take action, to take initiative, to dance on our today’s stage. But many people are too concerned about tomorrow that they forget there’s a today to fight for.

Others are waiting for future beauty and forgetting the very precious moments that pass unnoticed; that moment when a butterfly sits on a flower, confirming pollination; that time when a bird glides across the sky, feeling so fly like a G6;  that time when the moon is about to enter its hiding place until the return of the evening. Really, beautiful nothings that bestride our world – alas, unnoticed.

Are you one of those postponing your happiness to one big, sterling moment? Well, the good news is that now is the time to make the most of the moment. And if you’re young, you’ve got a privilege that many older people would want to trade places for. So what are you doing with your youth? How best can you seize the moment without networking and connecting with people who look like where you are going? Do you know that the company you keep can help you seize the moment? The books you read and the events you attend too?

So if you are an Emerging Leader between the ages of 16 to 40, Guardians of The Nations International (GOTNI) is presenting you an opportunity to seize the moment and meet some of the best brains in Nigeria in just two days. The Emerging Leaders Conference will be coming to you courtesy of GOTNI on the 6th and 7th of November, 2015 at International Conference Centre in Nigeria’s capital city of Abuja.
