How The Story of Mike – The Headless Chicken, Inspired & Changed My Life Read & Be Inspired


According to Wikipedia [True Story], The Miracle Mike is a chicken who survived for 18 months after his head had been cut off. It became popular worldwide and made the owner thousands of dollars. There is even an annual “Mike the Headless Chicken Day” in that US state. Most chickens with head don’t even live that long… 18 MONTHS.

On September 10, 1945, farmer Lloyd Olsen of Fruita, Colorado, United States, was eating supper with his mother-in-law and was sent out to the yard by his wife to bring back a chicken. Olsen chose a five-and-a-half-month-old cockerel named Mike. The axe missed the jugular vein, leaving one ear and most of the brain stem intact.

Despite Olsen’s failed attempt to behead Mike…

What is that head that has been cut off in your life, business or relationship that makes you feel the end has come… It’s not the END of the road, its only a BEND.

Every setback is set up for a comeback.
“In the middle of difficulty lies opportunity.” – Albert Einstein
Every disappointment has delayed the appointment, but you need to take action, you need to take the bend.

The names Oprah Winfrey, Michael Jordan, Thomas Edison, and Steve Jobs aren’t usually associated with failure. But before these successful super stars made it big in their respective industries, they first failed, were fired, or heard the word “NO” countless times.

But they never gave up.

After his first audition, Sidney Poitier, who grew up poor in the Bahamas, was told by the casting director, “Why don’t you stop wasting people’s time and go out and become a dishwasher or something?” Poitier went on to win an Oscar for “Lilies of the Field” in 1964 and 1967’s super successful “Guess Who’s Coming To Dinner.”

In 1954, When Elvis Presley was still a no-name performer, and Jimmy Denny, manager of the Grand Ole Opry, fired Elvis Presley after just one performance telling him, “You ain’t goin’ nowhere, son. You ought to go back to drivin’ a truck.” Elvis went on to become the second best-selling artists of all time.

After being cut from his high school basketball team, a young Michael Jordan went home and cried in the privacy of his bedroom. But Jordan didn’t let this early-in-life setback stop him from playing the game and the basketball superstar has stated, “I have missed more than 9,000 shots in my career. I have lost almost 300 games. On 26 occasions I have been entrusted to take the game winning shot, and I missed. I have failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed.”

Inspiration without action is just a dream.

Am sharing this to demonstrate that if you believe in something big, even bigger than yourself, no ‘headless’ situation will be an obstacle. You will be able to shape your own history against all odds.

Anything you conceive in your heart and believe in your mind, you can/will achieve…

Every person including my humble self has reached a point in his life when he wanted something very badly, but he was discouraged and ready to quit. When you’re faced with the choice between continuing to fight a “hopeless” battle or allowing yourself the relief of giving up, how do you choose?

Never give up; you might be closer to reaching your goal than you think

Most times, we are too quick to give up and take the easy way out, because of FEAR  and not wanting to pay the price that might be required to continue fighting. We prefer the certainty of quitting to the uncertainty of continuing the fight.

The #2 reason for failure in the world is FEAR. If you can face your fears, success is inevitable.
What we need is courage.

7 Ways to Live Healthier and More Successful as an Entrepreneur



There is a popular say that annoys me when ever i hear people say “being an entrepreneur is difficult and the toughest to start but the easiest to thrive in.”

It’s not like that you know.  I have gone through hundreds of contents about the lives of successful entrepreneurs and here is what I found:

Becoming successful is easy. All you need is discipline and a strict daily routine.

My simple advice is: Don’t just study what made them successful, but study what they do on a daily basis.

Lets go straight to the tricks and strategies i collected and adapted in my own life from several prosperous people in the world.

Do What You Love




In the school of success some questions need to be answered and one of it is; Why do you want to be successful? Steve Jobs thought it’s for personal fulfillment. Basically, he believed in finding work that drives our passion provides us with excitement and fulfillment.

Before you become an entrepreneur, decide if it’ll give you what you truly want in life. Mark Cuban, whose net worth is US$3.8 billion, says that people must know what they love and what they’re good at to be successful.

You draw more strength by doing what you love.

Be Authentic

We need to stay true to ourselves, vision, organization/business.

Come to think of it, nobody wants to be customers or clients to organizations that are entangled in bribery, fraud, false promises and bad delivery.

Ensure that the product, services, and culture you demonstrate to others are as authentic as possible, in order for you to keep a good reputation as an entrepreneur.

Alexi Panos, philanthropist, television presenter, producer, author, actress, and model believes when we expose our true selves to others, they can relate to us more effectively. By sharing your own story, you attract stakeholders towards yourself.

Set the Right Goals

You need to be discreet and direct as possible about this.

Not all goal are achievable or its better to say that not all goals are achievable within the speculated time you want.

It’s good to set great and big goals or targets but it is also important to be as realistic as possible, when you set a very big or ambiguous goal and you don’t achieve it at the end, you get discouraged and maybe frustrated.

Don’t expect immediate satisfaction. Everything takes time to come to be successful. Relax and know that what you visualized will become a reality.

Henry Ford said, “when you don’t believe in yourself, you are believing in excuses”.

Pick the right goals and follow it with all possibility.

It is common for people to lose hope and become frustrated when things don’t go their way. Don’t do that. Believe in your ambitions. Trust life that it will make it happen.

Help Others

This is a great way to promote your brand image. When you help others, others will help you. Also, this will ensure you build meaningful, long-lasting relationships.

Co-founder of LinkedIn, Reid Hoffman notes that you can improve yourself by associating with people who you want to become. Even the people you partner with and employ for your organizations should reflect the best standards.

Promote other organizations and collaborate with them instead of competing, and you will create a harmonious exchange of giving and take.

When you create products or services that help people, they want to be your customers for life. Moreover, when you deliver more than their expectations, they pledge loyalty to you.

Take Care of Your Health

As an entrepreneur i know multitasking is inevitable, as you would have to hold on to many positions in other to cut cost.

How ever this should be done with a good discretion, you should learn to give yourself time to rest, carry out check ups regularly and probably go on some vacations.

You health is your wealth as an entrepreneur, when you feel sick it directly reflects on your business, so you need to take those rest and maintain your health and body.

Ensure to eat healthy as well. Wake up early in the morning. Go for a jog or workout. Exercising your muscles and bones lets your body stay active all day long.

Time and Stress Management

What you choose to do within 24 hours is crucial. Be proactive. Don’t ever wait for tomorrow. What needs to be done needs to be done now.

Be creative when it comes to fear and stress management. Practice yoga and meditation. Find natural remedies for anxiety such as herbal tea, relaxing wine, and relaxing herbs.

I say this everywhere and I will say it here too. Switch to an organic diet. Your life will change drastically.

Be flexible. Adapt to situations as they come. Don’t be a slave to your past beliefs. If you have an opportunity, analyze it. If it’s favorable, take it.

Learn from Criticisms

One of the most important lessons is taken from customer feedbacks. You have to tweak your delivery according to your customer’s needs. Unsatisfied customers are the end of an organization.

Don’t be offended by criticisms. Use it as an opportunity to improve yourself. Co-founder of Huffington Post, Arianna Huffington recalls that a critic once wrote to her that ‘The Huffington Post was an unsurvivable failure’.

Failures are not the bricks that we carry on our shoulders, but the steps that we stand on to climb upwards. Sophia Amoruso, a self-made millionaire says that those who rejected her once approved of her later on. So failures are never the end.
