Gbas Gbos: Being The Villain In Someone’s Story
Based on popular culture, when people tell their stories, the most common thing you would notice is that the storyteller is most likely a victim or the hero.  Not so many really tell the story of them being a villain. Have you thought about situations where you were “the villain” in someone else story? We are not without flaws and we may find ourselves hurting others or disappointing others who trusted us at some point in time.  In this episode, Abraham shares some thoughts about villain archetypes and how growing in this awareness can empower you to improve your interpersonal relationships.

On Rising Up From Personal Downtime as a Young Leader
Have you ever had seasons in your life where you have all the bare minimum needed to pursue your goals and optimize your productivity, but the only thing not cooperating is your mind? I call it personal downtimes. I am joined by Toby Donut, as she talks about her experience with personal downtime these past months, and how she found her rhythm again. This is a followup to my previous episodes - it will definitely help you develop more resilience as a young leader.

Dealing With the Pressure and Expectation to Perform as a Young Leader
Ten years ago when I naively began journeying on this path of leadership, moving from a spectator and “victim” to a young boy making bold steps to be responsible for his future, it was simple. I was just exploring and following my inner nudging. There was no pressure whatsoever. Then came a moment where the success and recognition, came with subtle pressure to perform. External pressure (that came from genuine praise and admiration), became internal thoughts and guide. The idea that “I can’t fall short” became the standard, instead of that sweet, innocent, meek spirit that just longed to BE. In this episode, Abraham shares some key thoughts around dealing with expectations and pressures as a young leader. ---- This is a call for you to make things simple again. To reclaim your power back and just BE who God wants you to be, and not living life to meet up with the fast-paced rhythm of this age. When the core of your being is rightly aligned, then longevity in leading meaningful change becomes much more natural. Rest is a choice.

On African Childhood, Parental Love, and Cultural Expectations
What does it feel like growing up as an African Child? The spontaneous spanks from mama; the aggressive pleading of the blood of Jesus, the comparative analysis with other children; understanding the value of honour and respect; the tenacity and resilience learnt through family values; and so on. It’s a blend of many experiences that brings mixed feelings. Join me, CJ Lewenje and Tony Chikafa, fellow Post Graduate students at the University of Sussex, as we discuss similarities in our upbringing in Nigeria, Zambia and Zimbabwe and the implications on our lives currently. --- For access to the links and resources and the free digital copy of my book - Lead Your Life,  see the show note. -- https://www.abrahamologundudu.com.ng/rs-05-on-african-childhood-parental-love-and-cultural-expectations -- Don't forget to rate, subscribe and share. -- Connect on IG/TW: @Iamoabraham

Abraham, I Want to Get To Where You Are.
Last week, I was faced with a very direct question, “Abraham, I want to get where you are... What is the recommended roadmap please?”   Over the years, I have gotten very similar questions and I have come to understand that these different young persons just desire to be better and want to record significant growth and progress, with their life and career aspirations. In this episode, I share 10 key ideas that have guided me through the first ten years of my discovery and leadership journey.

Have you ever found yourself torn between two worlds - of putting up a “confident appearance” in public but only to struggle with internal conflicts in your private life?

Q&A: Meet Abraham Ologundudu
To mark the first episode, I asked my community of friends on social media to ask me any question they would like to know about me. I believe I did justice with my responses. There were questions about marriage, food, my ethos, what I do, my legacy, my background story, and many more exclusives!. --- For access to the links and resources and the free digital copy of my book - Lead Your Life,  see the show note. https://www.abrahamologundudu.com.ng/rs-01-question-and-answer-session-with-abraham-ologundudu -- Don't forget to rate, subscribe and share. -- Connect on IG/TW: @Iamoabraham
