I would like to use this medium to introduce my first book, "4 Indispensable Strategies for Success", to you. It is currently a best seller here in the UK and I am overjoyed that I was able to make my dream a reality. One of my goals for this year was to have my first book published by my 40th birthday and that was accomplished. In this handy, but all-encompassing book, I painstakingly described four simple but essential strategies for success for the benefit of those aspiring to be successful in life.
'4 Indispensable Strategies for Success' is a book put together at this 'intense period' when people are yearning for precise tools they can put in place to actualise their goals. After a thorough 10-year research and close study of the world's most successful men and women, I wrote this book to give readers insight into what successful people did to make them succeed.
These four strategies, with the acronym D-A-Y-O (the initials of my name), tackle the most common problems facing those who only dreamt of attaining success but never attained it. It is a practical solution with proven principles for success.
In this book you will learn: the D.A.Y.O. recipe for success; how to identify desired goals; how to take action immediately; how to believe more in yourself; how to establish priorities; how to get things done quickly; how to enjoy more time off with your family; how to maximise your special talents and abilities; how to achieve what you've been putting off easily and effortlessly; how to create an extra-ordinary quality of life; how to conquer fear through action; how to move beyond positive thinking to positive doing; effective time management; how to be focused; how to set & achieve goals; simple, but comprehensive strategies for attaining success; how to develop a never-say-quit attitude in attaining success; the value of appreciating who you are; how to achieve your goal through effective action and how to turn adversity to Success.
With practical exercises, personal experiences and complete openness, I carefully highlighted these 4 strategies for the advantage of different categories of people - Students, Executives, CEOs, Managers, Chairmen, Directors, etc.
Richie Dayo Johnson FRSA, Founder of Richmond Johnson Academy Surrey, UK wrote in the forward, "The essence of this book is to show you how to realise your full potential, which will in turn have a positive impact on your life style. Egalitarianism, that thinks nothing of punishing achievement and rewarding inactivity and laziness, must be quashed from our consciousness if we are to rise to new levels in life".
He continues that: "4 Indispensable Strategies for Success" is all about shunning mediocrity and to stop making excuses. It is written for the person who wants to "soar like an eagle and leave the pigeons alone". It is for the person who wants to write the script for life's blockbuster movie. Leaf through it, digest it, refer to it, Determine the movie, Act in it, You are the star and an Oscar award awaits you.
Joe De-Souza, a London based Motivational Speaker described the book as "Very inspirational and easy to understand. A clear roadmap on how to overcome adversity." While Professor Pat Utomi, Director of Centre for Applied Economics, Lagos Business School, Pan African University, Lagos said: "With this contribution, Dayo sets out to provide one of the most important ingredients for fulfilled living - learning from those who cried 'I am.' This distillation of strategies for success can be the difference between an ordinary life and a happy, successful and truly satisfactory time on this planet." Marigold Nunes a speaker and project manager of Make it Happen -VJB said: "I picked up some valuable reminders and tips on long term planning from the book. And I especially enjoyed the autobiographical exerts within it and how you make your own personal life work. It certainly left me wanting to hear more."
This is a remarkable book and a must buy for everyone aspiring to have his name in the list of the world's renowned and prominent achievers. I therefore recommend this book to anyone intending to shed ordinariness to attain excellence.
