Strangers Are The Key To Your Success.
I am excited to share this with you.
This could change your life.
One of the greatest lessons you will learn in life is that your success lies not in the hands of people you know or you are familiar with, but it lies in the hands of complete strangers.
Your money is hidden not in the pockets of your friends but in the pockets of strangers.
Your customers and clients are going to be strangers.
Your helpers, people who will help you manifest your dream, are not going to be people you know but they are going to be strangers.
Therefore, if you want to make progress you must learn to approach strangers and ask them for what you want. Continue reading

Strangers Are The Key To Your Success.
Why are people poor?
1. They want something for nothing.
They want to be rich without work.
They gamble, engage in betting because they believe in luck.
They hope to hit a jackpot someday.
But hope without clarity and strategic action compounds their cycle of poverty. Continue reading
In American movies and novels, something evil is always about to destroy the world and an American hero saves the world by stopping it. Such events never happen in Africa. We never see African heroes save the world. We must change this narrative.
I grew up reading African writers series. While I was being taught our traditions, the average American child was taught to think global, was taught to dominate and save the world. Not one protagonist in the African novels I read saved his city, talk less the world.
Read the novels of contemporary African writers and watch our movies, how many African heroes save the world? None. We raised a generation that never saw its heroes saving the world and we wonder why Africa is always being rescued by other nations. We don’t have global heroes.
America programmed us with their movies and books to wait to be rescued by Americans or by James Bond. Where is the African hero who rescues America and Europe from destruction? Is Africa so impoverished that it cannot conceptualize its own heroes who will save the world?
I was in my 30’s when I started thinking global and by then it was already too late. Bill Gates, Mark Zukerberg, Steve Jobs, were thinking global in their teens. They created products to save the world. No wonder their products are global.
America will not create African heroes for us. They prefer we beg them for help, for deliverance, for life itself. We must break free of this curse. We must create our own heroes, in our novels and movies, heroes from Africa who will save the world.

The Protocols For Opening Doors
1. Doors do not open by themselves.
To force a door open from the outside is criminal and illegal.
There is a protocol for opening doors.
If you contravene this protocol, doors will not be open to you.
This is the protocol: Doors are opened for you by people who are already inside.
2. Elite social clubs have a standard protocol by which they operate. If you do not observe their protocols you will not be admitted, your membership application will be rejected.
Elite social clubs require that someone on the inside should make an introduction for you before your application is considered and processed. Continue reading
Hello everyone, I would like to share something the Lord laid on my heart.
David was a shepherd boy who confronted and killed Goliath. King Saul adopted him and brought him into the palace to work with his soldiers. Saul witnessed the slaying of Goliath. He saw the incredible skill-sets David deployed to annihilate the enemy of Israel. He saw how through David’s act of bravery Israel won the battle and their enemies fled in terror. He saw the potential for greatness in David. From what the women sang after the battle he knew that David was made for great things in Israel.
Saul gave David a high position in his army. Made him the head of a unit, even gave him his daughter to marry, but Saul had no plans of ever allowing David become all he was capable of becoming. As long as David remained small, as long as he remained a servant working for Saul, as long as his dream did not clash with the kingly ambitions of Saul, he was welcome in the palace.
God’s plan for David was to become king, not to be a servant in Saul’s palace. David could never become a king as long as he remained in Saul’s palace. David had to leave Saul before he became all that God planned for him to be.
Saul became the albatross in David’s way. He became the one who blocked David from his greatness. Saul had become the enemy and if David wanted anything meaningful to happen in his life, if he wanted God’s will to be done in his life, if he wanted to see his dream become a reality, David had to leave Saul’s palace.
Saul’s palace represented success for David. He was a shepherd boy who was promoted to rub shoulders with the rich and powerful in the palace and could have started thinking that this was the ultimate for him. He had access to powerful people in the country, however if he wanted to fulfill destiny he had to leave Saul because Saul would never allow him become a king.
Who is the Saul in your life? Saul would never let you rise. He will never let you shine. He will reserve certain opportunities for himself alone and let you eat the crumbs of success which fall off his table. Saul will never allow you be the best you are capable of becoming. Saul would make sure you never become anything of value on this earth. As long as you remain with Saul you will remain an underdog, a servant, a slave. Continue reading
When God lays it on your heart or tells you: “Call Raymond,” “Call Sally,” “Call Andre,” “Call Felicia,” he wants you to pick up your phone, he wants you to drop whatever you are doing, he wants you to forget everything else, he wants you to pay total attention and call that person.
Someone may be saying, “Praise, I got it. So, God wants me to call Andre. I will do it when I am ready.” No. He doesn’t want you to call that person later. He doesn’t want you to do it after the day’s work. He doesn’t want you to do it last thing before you go to bed at night. He doesn’t want you to do it when you resume at work tomorrow morning. No. He wants you to do it now.
When we delay, we miss opportunities. When we delay, we miss out on our breakthroughs. Many of us have delayed making important calls only to discover days later that if we had made that call immediately it crossed our minds, we would have struck an opportunity. If we had put down what we were doing and spent just five minutes to make that call we would have been recipients of a blessing. Continue reading
If you are not following me on Twitter, you should. My handle is @praisegeorge.
“Ladies and Gentlemen, Having one good friend you can trust, who believes in you, who is loyal to you, who brings you real value, who helps your progress, is better than surrounding yourself with 100 FOOLS who cause you pain and bring ZERO value into your life.” –Praise George.
So many people have relationships that are of very low value or of absolutely no value to them. They are in these relationships due to force of habit. Some of these unproductive, life draining, failure producing relationships have existed for most of their lives. It has become part of their lives so they never bother to ask questions like: “Of what value is this relationship to me? Where is it taking me? What is it adding to my life? How is it helping me become the person I desire to be? How is it moving me towards my dream?” Continue reading
I have something interesting to share with you today. It is about strangers.
When we were children our parents told us not to talk to strangers. They wanted to protect us. That advice worked well as long as we were children. It protected us from some crazy people out there. However, as adults, that advice is redundant, even dangerous. There is absolutely nothing good we can achieve in life without the help of strangers. To be successful in life we need strangers.
Your money is in the hands of strangers. Your success is in the hands of strangers. Your progress is determined by strangers. Favour is waiting for you with strangers. Strangers determine your future.
Success is determined by how many people we can influence or persuade to get behind our cause, to buy our products and services. The more people we can influence, the better for us.
We have to connect with as many people as possible and talk to them about the value that we have to offer. The people you know are not enough to take you to the next level. Your present contacts are not enough to help your dream fly. You require the help of people you’ve never met before in your life to assist you and take you to the next level.
Many of your friends cannot help you.
Many of your contacts cannot help you.
Many people who helped you in the past cannot help you now.
Their season to help and assist you is over.
To move to the next level, you need strangers. Continue reading
Focus On Your calling.
Success is the result of a singular focus on your calling.
Failure is the result of trying to do so many things at the same time.
Do not waste your time trying to save the world. You cannot save the world. It is too big for you to save. The problems in the world are to numerous for you to solve. This is why you should discover and focus entirely on your calling and nothing else.
Your calling is the reason why you are alive. Your calling is your assignment. This is where you should invest your time, skill-set, energy, money and other resources. Continue reading
Never Doubt Yourself.
Doubt is destructive.
Doubt will kill your drive and your dream. Once doubt is sown in your mind, it will grow and sabotage you. Stop sharing your dream with people scared of your greatness, who can sow doubt in you.
Stay away from people who make you doubt yourself, who make you doubt your abilities, who make you doubt your dream and your future. It may be family, friends, co-workers, pastor, even someone you are dating. Anybody who makes you doubt yourself is an agent of destruction. Continue reading
