Living from Your True Essence (w/ Omoniyi Oni)
Hello, people! Welcome to this super thrilling episode of The Lifeaholic Podcast! Today, I chat with the awesome Omoniyi Oni - Music Minister, IT Consultant, and great human being. This conversation was deep on so many levels!Omoniyi is truly one of my favourite music ministers and his songs have been a huge blessing to me. His primary assignment is to heal and restore hope through the ministry of the Word and music. He ministers with such grace and his music births hope and healing in the lives of his listeners. Honestly, sitting with him for this conversation was pure joy!Among several other things, we talk about his venture into music at a young age, how he grew into his calling in music, how he manages to juggle this with his work as an IT expert (and how anyone can manage multiple talents and callings). We also talk about the most common way God speaks to us and how knowing God is the foundation of true self-awareness. Oh, and you’ll get to hear me sing for a teeny bit! Enjoy the podcast. I hope, like me, you’ll leave with clarity, wisdom and hope.-To learn more about Omoniyi Oni and his music, work and interests, please, visit www.omoniyioni.com or follow him on his social media platforms:Instagram: www.instagram.com/niyitodayTwitter: www.twitter.com/niyitodayFacebook: www.facebook.com/niyitoday   You can also listen to his songs directly through any of these platforms:https://audiomack.com/niyitoday/album/worth-waiting-forhttps://music.apple.com/ng/album/worth-waiting-for/1543943993Have you subscribed to The Lifeaholic Podcast on your podcast player?

Questions That Matter
Hello everyone! Today, we’re wrapping the month of April up with a discussion on Questions That Matter. So, on this episode, we discuss a few questions that we need to ask ourselves regularly if we want to fulfill our multi-faceted calling in God. These are not big questions, but there are likely to be the same questions we may find ourselves asking at the end of our lives when it’s time to go and face the Lord. We certainly don’t need to wait till the end of our lives to ask (and answer) them! Enjoy the podcast. And don’t forget to answer the questions for yourself!-In this episode, I mentioned the book The Top Five Regrets of the Dying by Bronnie Ware. Check it out here. Have you subscribed to The Lifeaholic Podcast on your podcast player? No? Do it now! Don’t keep the podcast a secret.

A Message from The Mess (w/ Tobiloba Ajayi)
Hello, awesome people of The Lifeaholic community! I’m super excited because on this episode of the podcast, I have a conversation with the unstoppable Tobiloba Ajayi, founder of The 'Let Cerebral Palsy Kids Learn' Foundation. And let me tell you, it was all shades of light and inspiration!In so many ways, Tobiloba exemplifies a true Lifeaholic. She’s taking life head-on, and living with Cerebral Palsy isn’t going to stop her from doing anything she sets her mind to, whether it’s creating a more inclusive world, climbing Olumo Rock without lifts or doing the Canopy Walk at the Kakum National Park in Ghana! Can you believe that?We talk extensively about growing up with Cerebral Palsy and how the condition has encouraged her to be creative and resourceful, and the framework she uses at her foundation which has enabled them to help over 400 kids with Cerebral Palsy access mainstream education in just 4 years. We also talk about her relationship with God and how anyone can move from dissatisfaction to fulfillment. You’ll especially love her quick self-coaching style!Enjoy the podcast! I hope, like me, you’ll leave educated, inspired and challenged. -To learn more about Tobiloba and her work at the Let Cerebral Palsy Kids Learn Foundation (including how you can support them), please, visit www.letcpkidslearn.com.Have you subscribed to The Lifeaholic Podcast on your podcast player?

The Value of Authenticity
Hello, everyone. This week we go into authenticity proper (finally!). In today’s world where it is possible to see what other people are doing in real time, it is very tempting to copy other people and try to be like them. Comparison, fear, pretension and self-judgment is so easy and often very natural, if we’re being honest. Being authentic means being true to our own values and reflecting this to ourselves and to the people around us in our choices and actions. Of course, it comes with great, life-changing benefits. Go listen!This week’s assignment: I want you to put yourself under a magnifying glass. Take just one area of life that you’re currently uncomfortable about and probe the reason for your discomfort. Is it because you are doing things you would rather not do for reasons that you don’t understand or that you wouldn’t allow yourself to address?  Whatever it is, write it down in your journal and with the help of the Holy Spirit, take a deep look into why you feel the way you do about it. That's all I want you to do. Just write it down. You don't even have to act on it yet. Just uncover it and acknowledge it. We briefly mentioned the book, Create Your Ideal Career: Your Roadmap to Purposeful, Passionate and Personally-Suitable Work. Get it here.Please, subscribe to the podcast and share it with the people you care about. Also, please, connect with The Lifeaholic on Instagram @the_lifeaholic and visit thelifeaholic.com to be a member of the community. So, till next week, thank you and God bless you!  Support the show (https://paystack.com/pay/thelifeaholicpodcast)

So, we’re talking about living passionately and purposefully right now, wherever we are and whatever our circumstances.This week’s assignment: Take one area of your life where you have been waiting for things to change, or a situation that you often find yourself upset about. Then, write out three positive things about it that can help to shift your perspective and make the most of it.PS: I share mine in the podcast.

Lessons and Gratitude: Season 1 Recap & Wrap-Up
This episode was a blast!It’s the season finale of The Lifeaholic Podcast Season 1! Whoop whoop!! We recap the entire season and just have a boatload of fun! This is my favourite episode of this season!It’s been such an amazing journey and I have a heart full of gratitude and a head full of lessons, which I share in the podcast.Here are some of the lessons I shared:You never really know how things will go until you actually start. Planning can only take you so far. Always keep in mind why you started something in the first place, so that when challenges and discouragement knock, you’ll have your motivation intact.Just start with whatever God has laid on your heart. You can polish things and get better as you go along.I am so grateful to God for His grace, strength and inspiration throughout this season. I am grateful to teachers and mentors all over the world who have helped me and taught me. And I am grateful to my wonderful listeners and The Lifeaholic community who have come along week in week out and shared great feedback. God bless you all.It’s Christmas! I pray that your relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ will deepen this beautiful period.

What Are You Leaving Behind?
In today’s episode, I’m asking you a very simple but important question: What one thing are you leaving behind in 2020? What habit, emotion, mindset, relationship, thing will absolutely not make it into 2021 with you?I know 2020 is not quite over yet, but I’m hoping this will get you thinking in the right direction.I also share my own answer to that question and the recent events in my life that caused me to make that choice.  Remember, you can get the Before You Set Goals: 10 Coaching Questions to Help You Set Goals That Please God and Take You Forward workbook for free here.Support the show (https://paystack.com/pay/thelifeaholicpodcast)

Before You Set Goals: Questions to Ask
Today, we continue our discussion on goal-setting. We explore a few important questions that will help you set goals that are not just right for you, but that will also motivate you to do the work of achieving them.The questions are taken from my new workbook Before You Set Goals: 10 Coaching Questions to Help You Set Goals That Please God and Take You Forward. Remember that you can get the workbook while it’s still free! Get it here.Here are some of the episode highlights:Our goals do not need to be outlandish. We just need to set goals that take us forward right now. When we move further, we can then move to other, possibly bigger goals.Our lives belong to God. For this reason, we can’t set goals and ask Him to come on board and bless them. We need to ask Him what He expects us to do and then set goals in line with whatever or wherever He leads.We have a better understanding of our life’s trajectory than anyone else. And our goals should reflect what we understand about ourselves.  Support the show (https://paystack.com/pay/thelifeaholicpodcast)

Before You Set Goals: Clarifying Life's Seasons
Happy new month! On the podcast today, we look at goal-setting from a unique angle: How to clarify our life’s seasons so that we can set the goals that truly take us forward and that are in line with God’s desires for us.Very importantly, I introduce my new workbook, Before You Set Goals: 10 Coaching Questions to Help You Set Goals That Please God and Take You Forward. Get it here. It’s free for a limited time.Here are some of the highlights of this episode:There are many good techniques to setting and achieving goals. But none of those techniques will help much or mean much if we do not set the right goals in the first place. There are different areas or domains of life, and in each domain or area of life, every individual is in a specific season per time.Life seasons differ from person to person and so should our goals.We cannot always measure a specific season in calendar time. It’s better not to try to set too many goals at the same time. We do not have to set goals for all of life domains at the same time. Remember to get the Before You Set Goals workbook for free here. It explains the different domains or areas of life and it contains incisive coaching questions and explanatory notes and directives. It’s coaching in a book, pretty much, and it will guide you to set the right goals that are just right for you right now!Support the show (https://paystack.com/pay/thelifeaholicpodcast)

How to Create Your Personal Creed
Today, we talk about having a Personal Creed and how it helps us to determine and become who we want to be (as different from what we want to be).Here are some of the highlights:A good starting point for life direction, personal growth and goal-setting is to determine who you want to be.A Personal Creed is a personal statement of identity, values, principles and desires.Having a Personal Creed can help you understand who you want to be and also help you to work towards being that person. You can download a free sample of a Personal Creed at TheLifeaholic.com and edit it into something that works for you. Support the show (https://paystack.com/pay/thelifeaholicpodcast)

Here are some of the podcast highlights:When we need to or want to take a major decision, are we struggling with lack of clarity or are we struggling with fear?Some things are not meant to work so that better things can fall into place.Even when some of our ideas and plans don’t work, God has promised that as believers who are connected to Him, we will prosper in all we do.Since our prosperity has already been guaranteed, are we man/woman enough to take God at His word and attempt what’s in our heart?Support the show (https://paystack.com/pay/thelifeaholicpodcast)

Taking Ownership of Your Life
Hello guys! In this episode, we talk about what it means to take ownership of our lives and how that empowers us to steer our lives in the direction we desire. I use a driving analogy I know you'll love! Here are some of the highlights: We need to acknowledge the fact that wherever we are today, we played a role in getting ourselves there, either by our actions or our responses. It’s important to take ownership because by doing that, we take and retain the power to steer our lives in the direction we want. Whoever has the responsibility has the power. As Christians, God is our Director and Helper, but we still need we still need to take our place of ownership.
