You have probably had someone tell you to think positive when you were in a trying situation. That is because the power of positive thinking is something that is a widely held belief. Most people easily accept that when you give off positive energy, you can infect others with that positive energy and that they will return that energy to you. It is basically the idea that what you put out there will come back to you. Positive influences are all around us. They exist because people love to feel good. People prefer the positive to the negative. You can likely relate to this. You would probably rather be around someone who is upbeat and full of energy than someone who is depressed and moping around. People see that thinking positive and having a positive attitude can play a large role in their life. Positive thinking can be very powerful and by putting it to work in your life; you can reap the positive benefits.

What is Positive Thinking?

Positive thinking can be defined as thinking good thoughts or being optimistic. When it comes to positive thinking there is no room for the negative. When you are a positive thinker, you will always look on the good side of things. You will not dwell on bad things; instead, you will look for the good in them. Positive thinking involves no negative thinking. Instead of thinking about what could go wrong, a positive thinker thinks about what can go right. A positive thinker is going to look for the good in things. That means they will always try to find something positive about every situation. Positive thinking plays a large role in life. A person who thinks positive will end up having a more positive life then someone who thinks negative. A positive thinker is going to be able to stay upbeat in any situation. That is because they do not dwell on the negative. They can always find a way to look at the positive in any situation. When bad things happen, a positive thinker is not going to let themselves get down and they are not going to let the bad invade their thoughts. Instead, they are going to look for positive things and look to find the solution to the negative situation. They also adopt a different attitude than a negative thinker. A positive thinker is going to try to stay upbeat and happy. They are going to try to stay energized and not allow themselves to get down. If they feel tired or lazy, they are going to do something to help bring them back up. Positive thinking can be used in every aspect of life, from the little things to major things. It can be used to help you get through trying times. You can also use it to just make your average day go a little better. Positive thinking involves being able to see the good things, even in something bad. It involves being able to turn off the negative thoughts and replace them with good thoughts. Positive thinking will allow you to avoid always going to the negative when something bad happens. It will also allow you to assume that good things will come your way and it will help you project an attitude that will help bring good things your way. Positive thinking is something that allows you to turn negatives into positives. It allows you to look on the brighter side of life. Positive thinking will open your eyes and your life to a world that is brighter and better than the negative one most people dwell in.
Positive thinking will help you grow and be open to success. Through positive thinking, you will be able to allow yourself to start to envision your life as being positive and

powerful. You will open up the door for good things to happen in your life.

 I have recived number and number of calls, emails and messsages from people requesting  to know the best lucrative business ( in their own words without rephrasing “ ikoi I appreciate your post on list of lucrative business but help me which one is the best and perfect lucrative?). It is actually disturbing for  one searching for a perfect business to start for no one wants to invest without hope of a better return on investment on a short run. So I consider this question thus serious and important so have decided to share it with you “ factors that favours starting up a lucrative business”

 Please read –business to business
                       affiliate marketing
 Permit me to start by stating the fact that all business are lucrative and profit yeilding never the less   there is so such thing as perfect or most lucrative business, all business are lucrative and profit yeilding if not would’t be called a business.
Factors that favour starting up a lucrative business helps you consider the challenges of man and also helps you provide solutions to them. Every business is as aresult of mans problem and the quest of a business idealed man to solve those problems that has made  way for earnings. So a business is lucrative if highly patronized, and a business is not patronized if they dosent provide high solutions to mans problems.
 In starting up a business one must consider the factors that favours starting up a lucrativebusiness:
This are the fact to consider prior starting up a business as they determine the lucrative ness of a business. Th geographical location , availability of raw materials , demand rate, and nearness to customers determines lucrative ness
Lucrative ness is either = high demand with low or equal supply  or
                                          = high supply with low or no demand
In either way the for factors are the determinants.

I know you might be wondering what I meant by my title  business to business but believe me there is no better combinations or bond as one between like materials, people, business, company e.t.c to another.
We entrepreneurs seems to get carried away with the effort of making business work, making ways and creating avenues for generating revenues that we often care less if we bound to; who we get our business connected to? Does it really matter? Who I relate to does it really affect my business, does it makes me any better or lesser to my business aims and goals? It’s understandable to ask this question but tell me your experience in business in connection to friendship (do use our comment box to add yours) through life of trial and error of great people, of world changers am happy to confide in you that the process,the success and future of your business life depends on the contact you make, the people you connect to and the friends you make.


We are familiar with this proverbs much that we are now overlook it but hey friend, its important than you can ever imagine. You may again ask why I border about your connection, contacts and friends if they know nothing about my business or my business plan.
Yes but consider this story, a story you are familiar with may be as a kid it was thought by our teachers or parents but as a story to know only as religion demands, and we are yet to grab the best as a business man.
  Jonah as we  all know was given a message to carry across to Nineveh ,but due to disobedience and lack of wisdom  he decided to go the opposite direction to tarshish,(here is what you need)he went down to port of Joppa to board a ship , there  some wealthy business men made contacts with him and together boarded the same  ship, and headed to tarshish, while on the ship a violent storm threatened to break the ship apart (why because of Jonah) the business men with their goods were forced to through their cargo, goods and wealth’s over board just to lighten the ship.
  Believe me many of this business men that threw their cargo over board became poor and lived in penury thereafter, many also took their own life and many were also thrown to jail for the money the borrowed that was never recovered because of the contact and connection they made with jonah.
Well you may say that is just a coincidence that all this happened or its just ill luck for the business men, this may be will be your judgement but consider that of Abraham a well established business man heading for success, success was prophesied, success was seen all around him but he never achieved or saw the long prophesied success early, (it took him a whole 24 years) why? Because of his connection, contact and friendship with lot. he only achieved success in his business and life only when he cut the rope of friendship between him and lot (when they separated).
  This stories duo thousands of years is still applicable in today world of business, this stories is still seen around as I have received testimonies after sharing this institutional discoveries with my clients. So dear for your business to prosper you must be cautious of your contacts and connection thus separate yourself from non- business oriented individuals, many have used their money to buy tickets and have therefore boarded the ship of business like you have but with no goods like Jonah and you mustn’t let them make you throw your goods over board rather threw them over board.
Like in my previous post we made it clear that for a business man to succeed he needs to belong to a cooperative organization.
  Dear, wise men associate with wiser men and in such business men associate with already established business men. Your success depends on it.

   Show me your business partner/friend and I will show you the success of your business
Friendship, family or any other bond does not determine good partnership in business so does neither determine success in business, if you can’t beat them join them doesn’t just  work in business  as you can’t win a business ill luck individual over it just doesn’t work separate yourself don’t waste your time trying to win anybody over.

Many business today have bankrupt not because he lack planning or principles but because the fail to save properly and so fail to spend but expend.
It has been discovered buy my crew and I that certain business all over the world both ones in start up stage, and the already thriving ones  are loosing heavily due to expenditure, many business remain a baby business, not growing, not making profit due to their mode of expenditure.
 Ignorant this  expenditure rule has caused more harm than good to business all over
 Are you planning to start up a business , is your business not still up to your expectation or do you desire to dominate the world of business the here is the solution. Consider our findings and rule “ THE EXPENDITURE RULE”


 If one must spend the expense must be ordinary and necessary.

 ORINARY EXPENDITURE an ordinary expense is one `that is accepted in ones niche or business

NECESSARY EXPENDITURE is one that is helpful and appropriate for your trade of business.
 To explain this above motion more and clear , “one must spend not expend”
To expend means spent or use up ( a resources or money) but
To spend means pay out (money) to buy or hire goods or services
Go over the two definitions and use our comment box to tell me what you think

Spend as the meaning implied has its business advantage to expend. If one desires to be successful in business one then mustn’t use up  its resources to be successful but can spend the resources.

Even if spending on business ground and motive one mustn’t spend above earnings in other words our spending shouldn’t exceed earning.

  Business men never fail to spend but successful business men never fail to spent to earn above heir spends. (note the difference)
·         Only spend to earn the business life of CARLOS SLIM  the worlds richest man illustrates this rule, he is the highest spender but always cautious of spending he only spend where he will earn.

 So if one must attain greatness in business one must spend only to earn and in such separates his personal needs from that of his business.

Remember your comment mean much to us so please do not fail to leave a comment about this post and blog.

If yes then you have to consider this post on the 3 keys to keep your business running. It  guarantee your business healthy future  just as a car needs this to keep running so also you need this essential keys to keep you business running.
What are this keys to keep this said business of yours running, well its something you might know something or something you might have come across well the thing there is that you needs it  and mind you this 3 keys was written and composed buy ikoi abode ikenna, and in such was as a result of great research conducted on both small and large business. Without wasting your time the first key is:
Ideas I love it. Great, rich and great men the world ever witnessed all archived this greatness just because of the ideas the had, and ideas as defined by the English dictionary means  a thought or suggestion about  a possible cause of action – it’s a mental impression a belief and the aim of purpose. If you have read my previous post I talked about aim and purpose and as you can see from the above definition that ideas when put into business will not only be inevitable tool that will guarantee success  cause if new ideas is being brought into a business then  the business will not only survive but the business will also stay above all odds and above average- ideas they say is the only factor needed to start up a business every other thing is capital(money). I don’t know if you agree with this  caused I have made use of this same key when I sent a proposal for bulksms to a company , yes and that was in my start up stage, I have no money but only have ideas that I forwarded to the company, knowing freely well that with big companies that have long existed  before mine but just the ideas that I presented to the company made them consider me before others.
The same applies to business, are you into production, marketing or any sort of business  you need is business  ideas that your competitors don’t have crew and you will be above them, generate new ideas  to present under your companies name and your business will continue to strive  in good health. to your customers all you need to win them in is your irritable ideas and they forever pay for those ideas
Do you know you can start a business with just an idea, I will talk about it in my next post, only if you demand for it through  your honest comments on how you feel about this blog.
Even a newbie in business knows the important of a good and proper finance management , also one must know that for a business  to keep running requires a proper management  of finance and for your business to manage it finance one must be     
For one to manage his business finance  one must be disciplined in the area of finance to be able to manage his resources and thus keep his business running for good, also one must have focus , focus is also essential for the good management of finance in a business cause without a good well define focus vies about the  said business will be vague and will guarantee retardation of the business  due to the mismanagement of funds.
Also saving of  fund  in preference  to business is also important for a proper management in the issue of finance.
Like I said early in my previous post that the first stage of a business star up is the imagination and good imagination produces a good result and every stage is a growth and every  growth is a result , so for a business to keep running one must learn how to grow and how to obtain a desired result easily and in a shortest possible time. Read my previous post and remember to revisit  or register to receive weekly updates on business ideas you can start and how to start them and how to maintain and keep them running.
