Seven Secrets To Great Life Dream Friendship

Seven Secrets To Great Life Dream Friendship

In life we need friends to progress, to be strong, to be great, to achieve our life dreams. we need friends to help us reach our full potentials and encourage us in achieving our destiny dreams. we need them to reach so high and keep going till we reach to our destination.

Friendship require maintenance, you have to "Feed" your friend,"Pet" them, "Clean" them up and "Doctor" them. If you don't, they'll "Die"

In fact, friendship are a lot like money: They're easier made than kept. If you've ever had a friend who just drifted away, you know that. If you you've ever watched a relationship fizzle, you've learnt this the hard way.

All of us, at one time or another, experience difficulties in our friendship.

And these days, with the average American family to a new home every five years, things aren't getting any easier on the friendship front.

Over the last few weeks, i can't count how many have told me that friendship have made their lives rich. yet many lament the fact that they wish those friendship were better.

So How Do We Keep Our Friendships Growing?
How Can We Be A Better Friend?
Perhaps, you along with others reading Promarketingbrand Article, could benefit from the following Secrets of great Friendship.

                         7 Ultimate Secrets To Great Friendship

1. Accept Others: Accept people at home, church, college and working places, on the way accept people.

You need to be encouraged, built up, achieve your life dreams and accepted by others. Good friends know that. Good friends accept people the way they are. you must appreciate and praise the uniqueness of others. And allow your friends the freedom to be themselves.

2. Listen Up: No matter who we are, we all are working for a listening ear. A friend of mine who was voted most popular girl in the Oke-ogun polytechnic Saki Tops, once told me the secret to her popularity. Simply this: "I listen" from an early age her father had taught her that "everyone on earth is at least just a little bit lonely".

I love that advice. An old Spanish proverbs says, "Two great talkers will not travel far together". How true.

There is no better friendship booster than the ability to listen. The ability to show genuine interest in others is an admirable quality of a true friend.

3. Keep Secrets: Nothing destroys friendship than the arrow of gossip. many people live by the rule, " If you haven't gotten anything nice to say about nobody come sit next to me. But when you gossip you violate God commandment".

"Gossip betrays confidence, so avoid a man who talks too much".Real friends speak well of you behind your back. They are known as people who won't receive gossip, nor will they pass it on.

A closed mouth gathers no foul, Good friends aren't just there to listen to our secrets; they keep them.

4. Sharpen Up: As the word of God tells us that we are to sharpen each other. "as iron sharpens iron"
Years ago a good friend of mine took me out for a drink one evening. "Tochukwu", he said as we discussed together, "its not fun for me to tell you this, but since we talked the other night I've felt i need to confront you about something". I sat my fork down and listened up. "Sometime you have a real problem with gossip. And it's not helping anyone". Hearing this i was offended, but i didn't show it.

But the more i thought about it the more i realise that he was right. Today i consider him to be one of my best friend.

"Words from a friend can be trusted" because our best friend stab us in front. it's true. Those who provoke change in us do so because they care enough to tell us the principal truth about ourselves  and mix it with a generous dose of love.

5. Practise Forgiveness: It is impossible for me to overstate the importance of forgiveness in friendship. whether we are the one who hurts or the one who did the hurting, good friends humble themselves enough to admit when they are wrong.

And good friends forgive. In fact, the gifts of forgiveness is often the best gift we can offer a friend.

6. Focus Upward: There's an old Turkish proverbs that goes like this: "He who seeks a faultless friend is friendless". How true. Friend fail us, don;t they? people disappoint.

And when we expect too much from our earthly friendships, we damage them.

Ironically, those who seek joy only in human friendship will end up lonely. The true joy of our lives will come from the most important relationship of all: our relationship with God in loving Him, we learn to love our earthly friends better.

7. Be Available And Be There: Availability is the first step to a successful and a great friendship. There's nothing like sickness or bankruptcy to help us remember who our real friends are.

Like house plants, friendship grows slowly over time and require constant watering. " Friendship that last a life time require nurturing, kindness, and a listening ear. Those who make such an investment find that it pays off all through the years.

I have found that life is richer, the horizon is brighter, and the road to our life dream is shorter when travel with a few good friends. Great Friendship Pays.

Some us are dead spiritually but physically we are alive eating and drinking. Yes, you can be physically healthy and okay, but spirtually you have critical cancerous disease that is eating you up.

                              Spiritual Death

The word of God says, "What happens spiritually controls what happens pysically".

The word also say, " God is a spirit and they that worhip him must worship him in spirit and in truth".You have to understand that your stolen laughter was first tampered with spiritually before it manifested physically.

Your lost glory, honour, promotion was first devoured spiritually before it manifested physically. So therefore, your faliure has nothing to do with physical being, "why" if you are spiritually okay, you will automatically succeed physically. "life principles" Until you discover you have a problem they can't be a recovery.

Life is all about principles, and only those who know and understand the principles and apply it succeed in life.

Who Do You Serve? God or the devil. you can drop your answer at the commentary box after reading this article.
                                                3 Habit That Destroys Your Life Dream Spiritually

1. Prayerlessness: Satan has no business on how many people read and study about prayer if only he can stop them from praying.

Seven days without prayer makes you weak, fourteen days without prayer makes you dead already. if you don't pray, you turn to a prey in the hands of your enemies.

Prayer will stop you from sinning, and sin will stop you from praying; the choice is yours to make.

Prayerlessness is spiritual death. And when you are spiritually dead, physically you are empty and powerless.

Prayer is the key to spiritual health, spiritual alertness determines your success physically. it is said that the canal being cannot understand the things of the spirit. Pray, pray and pray. your spiritual life matters alot in your life dream and ambition.

You eat and drink to  nourish your physical body. And do you ever think of your spiritual being. well, you can only nourish that by prayer and fasting and meditating on GOD'S word.

Lust: Who owns your heart? I asked a question earlier "Who do you serve?. Don't leave these question unanswered please.

The dictionary defined lust as showing strong sexual desire when love is not involved. My own definition of lust is Wickedness, greediness, hatred bacause there is no love in it.

                                       Two lustful Habits That Destroys Our Spiritual Life

1. Fornication: Famous weapon of the devil, life purpose and destinies has been aborted through this act. Some of us, enjoy fornicating and some of us can't go a week without out fornicating.

Youths of this present century define it as love. When you fornicate, spiritually you are selling your greatness and birthright.

2. Masturbation: Lust of the heart, Sexual desire when love is not involved. Some us develop this habit right from our young age and got addicted to it.

Once you are addicted to masturbation, it takes only God's grace to be free from it. i have an article i read earlier this year that will help you to Stop Masturbation.

Three Major Expenses That Leads To Debt

common errors that leads to debt
Image Courtesy/Flickr

A common thread that leads to debt in most cases is lack of thorough planning.
Sometimes this flaws is amplified by ignorance or indulgence, but without some kind of financial plan (budget) you won't realise that you have a problem until it overwhelms you.

There are three common ways many people get into untimely and dangerous debt
1. The Purchase Of A Home: Nearly every young couples and people or every family, dreams of owning their own home.

The term 'owning' is used loosely here because what that means for most people or couples is paying a mortage. So the common definition of owning is "as opposed to renting".

Many people, young dudes, couples and family try to buy a home too soon, or pay too much and end up in financial trouble called debt. unfortunately, quite often you don't realise that owning the home created your financial troubles because it took large a portion of their spendable income.

If you can afford to purchase a home within your budget, that makes sense. But if you wreck your budget Just to get into a home, build a home and buy a home, that makes no sense at all.

The compulsion we have for buying large, expensive homes is just a reflection of poor stewardship in general.

2. Car Purchase: This days, every young dude, families, millionaires, entrepreneurs wants to own and ride flashy cars.

The second most common source of debt is the purchase of a new car. Quite often some people who can't afford to buy new home decide on buying a new car as a compromise. unfortunately it's not a good compromise because cars now sell for prices that houses are sold for twenty five years ago.

Warning: Buying expensive cars has placed bondage on many young couples and entrepreneurs even young people.

However, if you have your finances under control and save for the cost of a new car, it is your decision whether or not to buy one. One person may think a new car is bad, while other may think it represent better value. But the one thing neither of them can disagree about is that when you borrow money to buy a car you are going to become liable for the loan which leads to debt.

3. Scheduled Disaster: It is failing to plan for predictable expenses that haven't come due yet. failure to plan for a scheduled disaster is the major reason many people end up in debt.

Why do intelligent people fail to anticipate known expenses? Because when they try to work them into their spending plan (Budget) they don't fit.

lastly, Debt is a cancer in the heart of the debtor that eats's up the happiness and comfort of the person.

Choosing the right size of dreams is essential for effectiveness.

If you have no faith in your future, no faith in yourself and your skills to carry out your life dreams, it’s impossible for you think about what might happen twenty five years from now.

6.    Time – How many years will it take to see your dream become reality?

People: How many people do you want to lead?  How many people do you think you can help or feel comfortable helping?
Do you see yourself leading small kind of organization or a large kind of organization.

How many people do you want to work with in the future? 1-50, 50 – 100, 100 – 500.

Consider answering this question in order to define the right size of dream for yourself.

Money: It is the range of dollars that you are comfortable of earning and investing in your dream. Do you dream someday of making and investing $1billion dollars? What kind of dream are most comfortable to you? $100, $100,000, $1,000,000.

Geography: what are the boundaries of your psychological world? Where do you want your dream business to dominate? Do you think in terms of your town, city, state and country? Or the entire universe? 

Note: some people work better in a large size of geography and some don’t.

What size piece of geography are you most comfortable with emotionally? 10 neighborhood, city, state, nation, world, universe.

It depends on the size of  dreams you have.

Time: How many years will take you to bring your dreams to reality? If you are the kind of person who has a gigantic dream, you’d better count many years of sacrifice and hardwork.

Hacks To Build A Successful Dream Team Like 1992 Dream Team

dream team
Photo Credit/flickr

In building a team a clear dream is essential; leadership is knowing what to do next, knowing why that is important, knowing how to take calculated risk.

If you are a leader and you don’t know what to do next, you will begin to lose your leadership role. You may keep the title of a leader, but you are no longer the real leader.

How  do you know what to do next? What to do next is basically a directional question. A clear life dream provides a South star for what to do next. For example, when a professional football team has a dream of playing in the champions league, the question always becomes, “What do we do next to move in the direction of playing in champions league?”

Martin Luther King, Jr said, “I have a dream, “not “I have a plan”! His dream energized many plans.

Yes, Martin Luther King, Jr said, “I have a dream.” His dream energized hundreds dream team like the dream team of 1992. The dream energized the dream team that carried out the plan.

The Dream Of Being The Best Team In The World

Being the best team in the world requires a lot of talents and potentials; if a football coach, Entrepreneur, Chief Executive, elected leader and so on wants to build a dream team, stop for a minute and ask yourself:

How many hours and how  many dollars have been spent all over the world in the last two years by group trying to become the best dream team in the world?it's into millions of hours; its into billions of dollars.

Once you’ve got a dream your ability to motivate a dream team to give time, energy, money, commitment, and discipline is dramatically increased.

You cannot build a dream team with people without talent, without ability, without experience, without anything going for them.

Building a dream team, or a world class team, whether in athletics or ministry or business,typically takes years. In athletics for example, it’s very rare when an expansion team makes the playoffs, let alone the championships, in the first year. Even with a clear dream, it generally takes years of discipline, hard work, subtle adjustments, and all of those kinds of things to mold and birth a dream team into a world.

Note: It takes a clear dream to lead any successful team, organization, football team and business team to its full potential.

Another way to look at it is to ask yourself, “what is this team’s potential?” And the best way to move it from wherever it is to its full potential is to introduce a team dream. In the team dream each person can fulfill her or his own dream; therefore, there’s a willingness on the part of the team members to readjust their priorities to help your team win or reach its goals.

Effective Strategies for maintaining success and dealing with disaster as a young leader

This another article on my leadership mastery free course; in case you missed the last blog post Subscribe to my Newsletter and get it straight on your mail box.
Leaders forum

To maintain success as a young leader or Guru, you will have to be committed and passionate about what you are doing.

The Perils Of Success

So why does complacency set in? One problem, i think is that when things are going well you start to believe your own publicity and invincibility. And because you’re at the top, you become removed from reality. You don't notice the danger signs that are definitely lurking there somewhere.

Once you’re successful, you find it difficult to listen to other people’s decisions. And the people around will find it difficult to express an opinion and they certainly very rarely say ‘no’ to you. So if things are slipping, you may well not hear about it.

The solution is to try and stay as grounded in reality as possible, to ignore the hype and the yea  - Sayers. Make self help books your greatest asset; read books on leadership and self development books. Be ruthless with your time.

I certainly experienced this phenomenon myself. On one level, it’s very nice to find everyone around me agreeing with everything i say and questioning little. But as  i’ve already said, it’s dangerous. At the very least it can lead to classic problem of people taking whatever you say absolutely literally.

As a younger leader, lets assume everything is going well, you are focused and your team feel motivated. You would think you could relax a little. Sadly No. It’s often how things seem to be going really well that problems can start to occur.

Apart from anything else- and somewhat ironically- any young leader that reaches to the top will inevitably run into hard time by virtue of its very level of success. More over, people will start to get tired of what you do, and because you’re too busy being successful to respond to whats really happening, the rot start to set in.
Things Fall Apart

A sense of reality, then can be one of the victims of success. And if things do start going wrong, truth rapidly flies out of the window.

In fact, i would go so far as to say that one sure sign of a failed or problematic young leader is that no one tells him the truth or at least the whole truth. This is partly because the failing young leader has already lost its grip on reality, but it’s also because, as things spiral out of control, no one wants to tell the truth. Why?

Because by this stage, if you tell the truth, you are automatically the carrier of bad news.

Fatal Errors Aspiring Young Leaders Make

The number one reason for failure is aspiring young leaders coming in with their own ideas and not inquiring.

They don’t allow others to  influence their understanding of the situation and stick rapidly to their own set of principles or Style of leadership.

That comes from inability to engage his team in honest conversation and in, some cases, a lack of appreciation of its importance for performance and commitment.


Honestly, Good young leaders know how to create honest conversations. Whether it is their senior team or key people in the team.

As a new young leader, developing a clear direction for change, honest conversation about barriers, diagnosis and action planning is at the core of effective leadership.

One mental exercises useful for trying to establish what works and what dosen’t is apply the 7cs test.
Your answer should be immediate, not the result of deliberation and consultation.

How good or bad is your organisation at the following e.g Diamond bank of Nigeria.

1.    Co-ordination – does it work in a joined - up way?

2.    Commitment – how committed are people?

3.    Communication – is the message sent received?

4.    Competence – how competent are people?

5.    Conflict management – can people argue and the get on with it?
6.    Creativity – what are the creative juices like?

7.    Capacity management – is there the capacity to do a lot of things?

A young leader leading a great organisation will score six out of seven; a good organisation, four out of seven; most, when honestly scored, achieve two or three out of seven.

Effective Leadership Mastery For All

To be an effective young leader or already in the game, you have to build your leadership style with what is already there. I know few young leaders who have succeeded by destroying the past. You have to honour these past. Destroying the past makes people feel disconnected and their identity being destroyed. Always adapt but don’t destroy.


A good young leader is the one who gets on, who finds out what’s going on and gets on with what has to be done no matter how unpopular it is.
Leadership is a test of courage, not of popularity.
