#SoriyanChats – 19th November 2014

#SoriyanChats is a twitter forum where I, Olakunle Soriyan, discuss with my ‘tweeps’ on select local and global issues affecting us. People get to ask me questions or make comments and I respond accordingly.

This segment on the blog is a deliberate effort to capture the chats in a single view and make available for referencing and recheck especially for those who missed it.


Oluleye Ogunmola @OluleyeOgunmola: @olakunlesoriyan, in those difficult moments of ur start-up, have you ever been tempted with an offer of employment? #SoriyanChats

Olakunle Soriyan @olakunlesoriyan: @OluleyeOgunmola I have been offered mouth watering employments. But God helped me before I could be tempted enough to break #SoriyanChats

Olakunle Soriyan @olakunlesoriyan: @OluleyeOgunmola It was a great experience while i worked. But what will take me back to that should not be a mere crisis #SoriyanChats

 oluwafemi Dairo @oluwafemiDAIRO: @olakunlesoriyan can u please explicate, how can ones pursuit be guided by reasoning? #soriyanchats

Olakunle Soriyan @olakunlesoriyan: @oluwafemiDAIRO Intelligence..Street Knowledge..Self-Awareness..Social Skills..and on top of all that: MENTORING #SoriyanChats

Blueprint Activator™@abiodunBEYOND: What are your best practices on branding your social solutions? #SoriyanChats @olakunlesoriyan

Olakunle Soriyan @olakunlesoriyan: @abiodunBEYOND To thyself be TRUE..To your GOD be ACCOUNTABLE&To your WORLD be RELEVANT. That’s the ENGINE of SOCIAL CHANGE #SoriyanChats

Blueprint Activator™ @abiodunBEYOND: #SoriyanChats Sir, how do you go from a personal burden to a social solution? @olakunlesoriyan

Olakunle Soriyan @olakunlesoriyan: @abiodunBEYOND Clarity from within. When you are internally clear…MISSION becomes NATURE…and TRANSFORMATION becomes DUTY #SoriyanChats

 Obadina kemi @Okekemi: @olakunlesoriyan ; ur schedule looks like nature is eroded I salute your selfless effort towards change though! #SoriyanChats

Olakunle Soriyan @olakunlesoriyan: @Okekemi Thank you…Grace and Providence are critical succor-points for my ENERGY…GOD is TRUTH and FAMILY is KING #SoriyanChats

 Obadina kemi @Okekemi: @olakunlesoriyan sir, you are busy thinkn, giving, sharin, lovin. I wanto know, hw do u replenish in a self consumed society? #SoriyanChats

Olakunle Soriyan @olakunlesoriyan: @Okekemi Time to learn or rejuvenate should be NATURE. Asking how I do that is like asking how I am able to EAT. #SoriyanChats

 Esohe Osinoiki @airsawhair: @olakunlesoriyan sir, wiv ur knowledge on parenting, is there a time when flogging children is permissible? #SoriyanChats

Olakunle Soriyan @olakunlesoriyan: @airsawhair No time. What we need is discipline not punishment. Discipline is corrective but punishment is an error of nature #SoriyanChats

 Esohe Osinoiki @airsawhair: @olakunlesoriyan some might argue that flogging is a form of correction…#SoriyanChats

Olakunle Soriyan @olakunlesoriyan:@airsawhair Correction is the ability of the human spirit to impact on the erroneous in a way that governs behavior #SoriyanChats

Olakunle Soriyan @olakunlesoriyan: @airsawhair @cherokee_autumn The human soul believes as it sees; his ignorance is a formidable adversary to his truth. #SoriyanChats

Olakunle Soriyan @olakunlesoriyan: @cherokee_autumn True..yet,a head can b stubborn..also takes a heart-touch;a human moment dat shares a connection INSIDE-OUT #SoriyanChats

 Esohe Osinoiki @airsawhair: @olakunlesoriyan wat oda option is thr 4 a parent who has tried talking, motivating, appealing & even praying all to no avail? #SoriyanChats

Olakunle Soriyan @olakunlesoriyan: @IkeNwosuIsaac @airsawhair Rent a space in their heads and play. If u have to give timeouts, explain and do a minute per age #SoriyanChats

 Ikechukwu Nwosu @IkeNwosuIsaac:  @airsawhair @olakunlesoriyan #SoriyanChats In what ways can we discipline a toddler?

Olakunle Soriyan @olakunlesoriyan: @airsawhair Punishment is the unguardedness of the offended to give the offender the experience of his or her pain. #SoriyanChats

Olakunle Soriyan @olakunlesoriyan: @airsawhair It is already established that most parents never correct their wards in their lifetime…They only punish!! #SoriyanChats

Olakunle Soriyan @olakunlesoriyan: @airsawhair Formal training isn’t needed to punish…you only need to be born. Any fool can punish but correction is a skill #SoriyanChats

Olakunle Soriyan @olakunlesoriyan: @airsawhair Trust me…its ignorance. There is no such thing as a stubborn child, ONLY ignorant parents #SoriyanChats

Olakunle Soriyan @olakunlesoriyan: @IkeNwosuIsaac @airsawhair We rarely punish kids for doing wrong…We punish them for doing what we don’t like #SoriyanChats

Olakunle Soriyan @olakunlesoriyan: @IkeNwosuIsaac @airsawhair For this…We should sit. Most kids never offend..They just play. Kids don’t do wrong.. #SoriyanChats

Olakunle Soriyan @olakunlesoriyan: @airsawhair Training/Coaching!! Parenting is not a gift of nature…it is a skill #SoriyanChats

 Opoola Akintomiwa T @AkintomiwaT: @olakunlesoriyan. How best can I make a living from writing as a young Nigerian author? #SoriyanChats

Olakunle Soriyan @olakunlesoriyan: @AkintomiwaT CONTENT must PASS the TEST of MEANING&NEED…Your MARKETING & SALES EFFORTS must PASS the TEST of UNIVERSALITY #SoriyanChats

Olakunle Soriyan @olakunlesoriyan: @AkintomiwaT Yes. But not just the Nigerian market. You do need the e-commerce platforms that delivers value beyond borders #SoriyanChats

Esohe Osinoiki @airsawhair: Sir I wanna know and I’m sure odas wanna know too…who are you going to vote for in 2015? #SoriyanChats @olakunlesoriyan

Olakunle Soriyan @olakunlesoriyan: @airsawhair Tough choice…searching my soul…looking for the answer. #SoriyanChats

EvoReb @evoreb: #SoriyanChats Sir how best do you think the insurgents in the north should be handled? @olakunlesoriyan

Olakunle Soriyan @olakunlesoriyan: @evoreb The instruments holding the insurgents together is called INTEREST. This INTEREST sadly is from both SIDES of the WAR #SoriyanChats

Olakunle Soriyan @olakunlesoriyan: @evoreb Honestly, that’s a symposium discussion…#SoriyanChats

 TOBI ISAAC ADEDEJI @high_seek: #SoriyanChats how can we consciously live our life?

Olakunle Soriyan @olakunlesoriyan: @high_seek Knowledge of urself, knowledge of ur maker, knowledge of ur environment, stay accountable and live intentionally. #SoriyanChats

 oluwafemi Dairo ‏@oluwafemiDAIRO: @olakunlesoriyan how did you start your journey in the motivational career?

Olakunle Soriyan @olakunlesoriyan: @oluwafemiDAIRO I am the VOICE of the HUMAN CONSCIENCE asking for the RESPONSIBILITY of the HUMAN SPIRIT to MULTIPLY VALUE #SoriyanChats

Olakunle Soriyan @olakunlesoriyan: @oluwafemiDAIRO But I am NOT a MOTIVATIONAL SPEAKER in the way it is DEFINED here. But I am the VOICE of the HUMAN CONSCIENCE #SoriyanChats

oluwafemi Dairo ‏@oluwafemiDAIRO: @olakunlesoriyan cant help laughing sir.i wuld like to know how you started after obeying the instruction to convey the THOUGHT REVOLUTION

Olakunle Soriyan‏@olakunlesoriyan: @oluwafemiDAIRO A step per time. The patience of life…the clarity of the soul..& the gift of pursuit under God. They work! #SoriyanChats

 Gbassa Steve @gbassasteve@olakunlesoriyan, how did you become who you are today? #SoriyanChats

Olakunle Soriyan @olakunlesoriyan: @gbassasteve When I gave my life to Christ…It was the turning point!! The beginning of my madness #SoriyanChats

Olakunle Soriyan @olakunlesoriyan: @gbassasteve I have learnt acquired a lot. But what brought me this far? Grit and Faith. The papers are yet to qualify me #SoriyanChats

Gbassa Steve @gbassasteve: @olakunlesoriyan, how would you like to be remembered after you leave this earth? #SoriyanChats

Olakunle Soriyan ‏@olakunlesoriyan: @Benwealth01 #SoriyanChats ASSIGNMENT is a JOURNEY my dear.

Olakunle Soriyan ‏@olakunlesoriyan: @Benwealth01 #SoriyanChats Then they don’t want it. What is TOO EXPENSIVE for you is the EXACT REPRESENTATION of WHAT YOU REALLY DON’T WANT.

Olakunle Soriyan ‏@olakunlesoriyan: @Benwealth01 #SoriyanChats A SOLUTION that is NOT AFFORDABLE is a SOLUTION;maybe NOT YOUR OWN SOLUTION. If it is..GET IT.That’s HOW I DO it.


George C. Ezechukwu ‏@georgeezechuks: @olakunlesoriyan pls how can one switch to ones passion knowing too well that where u are now, u don’t hv d time to upgrade urself?

Olakunle Soriyan ‏@olakunlesoriyan: @georgeezechuks #SoriyanChats COUNSEL FIRST. Diagnosis MUST PRECEDE Prescription. STAY FAITHFUL where you are. FAITHFULNESS is a LIFTER.

   Olakunle Soriyan ‏@olakunlesoriyan: @georgeezechuks #SoriyanChats You’ll NOT ALWAYS be CLEAR about where you are NOT GOING.But you MUST ALWAYS KNOW where you DON’T want to go.

Olakunle Soriyan ‏@olakunlesoriyan: @georgeezechuks #SoriyanChats TIME will LIFT you if you STAY FAITHFUL WHERE YOU ARE. PREVAILING ROLE is a PATHWAY to FUTURE RESPONSIBILITY


George C. Ezechukwu@georgeezechuks: @olakunlesoriyan Ok sir but I have been FAITHFUL for 3 yrs now, I need a change. I know where I want to go.

Olakunle Soriyan ‏@olakunlesoriyan: @georgeezechuks #SoriyanChats What you then NEED is a DECISION. But NOT ALONE. The KNOWLEDGE of EXIT is DIFFERENT from the DAY of EXIT


George C. Ezechukwu@georgeezechuks: @olakunlesoriyan yes I decided to get married 1st, so dat I can exit when she gets a job dat can sustain d family while I pursue my dreams

Olakunle Soriyan ‏@olakunlesoriyan: @georgeezechuks #SoriyanChats GOOD. STAY on your JOURNEY. It’s a SINGLE SHOT and CAUTION is KING. TAKE it SLOW and get to KNOW. KEEP a PLAN

Olakunle Soriyan ‏@olakunlesoriyan: @georgeezechuks #SoriyanChats RATE the ENGAGEMENT after you LEAVE above the DECISION to LEAVE. PLAN. DECISION DAY is NOT the DAY to QUIT.


George C. Ezechukwu ‏@georgeezechuks:  @olakunlesoriyan I know sir bt for me to do it, I must resign d one I’m doing now, how do I pay my bills n those of my siblings if I resign?

Olakunle Soriyan ‏@olakunlesoriyan: @georgeezechuks #SoriyanChats If you STILL have FEARS about what to EAT&BILLS, that’s GOD’S VOICE right there saying CHILL & PLAN MORE.

Olakunle Soriyan ‏@olakunlesoriyan: @georgeezechuks #SoriyanChats DON’T RUSH to LEAVE your PRESENT LOCATION regardless of the CONVICTION to do so. MANY DID it and ALL REGRETS..

Olakunle Soriyan ‏@olakunlesoriyan: @georgeezechuks #SoriyanChats CONNECT to a WISE EYE and a DISCERNING EAR to GUIDE you. A FORMIDABLE EXIT PLAN should be your CRITICAL GOAL.


George C. Ezechukwu ‏@georgeezechuks: @olakunlesoriyan Ok sir, I’m planning just that sometimes you get fired up to change your situation

Olakunle Soriyan ‏@olakunlesoriyan: @georgeezechuks #SoriyanChats PASSION is DANGEROUS when it is NOT GUIDED by KNOWLEDGE, UNDERSTANDING and WISDOM. That’s DIRECTION.


George C. Ezechukwu ‏@georgeezechuks:  @olakunlesoriyan Good evening sir, thanks for this opportunity again.

Olakunle Soriyan ‏@olakunlesoriyan:  @georgeezechuks It’s a DUTY. #SoriyanChats


@olakunlesoriyan, sir I admire you a lot and want to be like you. What’s your secret? #SoriyanChats

Olakunle Soriyan ‏@olakunlesoriyan: @MouthPiece_laff #SoriyanChats May U NEVER be like me. Instead,you’ll be GREATER than me; particularly if you are younger by at least 5yrs.

Olakunle Soriyan ‏@olakunlesoriyan: @MouthPiece_laff #SoriyanChats No Doubt, a LOT of STUDY and EXERTION. But my GREATEST SECRET is GOD’S GRACE that TURNS LITTLE to MUCH.

Olakunle Soriyan ‏@olakunlesoriyan: @MouthPiece_laff #SoriyanChats I did a LOT. But HIGH and ABOVE ALL I DID is the ACCEPTANCE of the GRACE to SURRENDER to my MAKER!

Olakunle Soriyan ‏@olakunlesoriyan: @MouthPiece_laff #SoriyanChats Forget about mine. Find yours. NOONE TEACHES YOU HOW MUCH TIME TO SPEND EATING. But 10hrs a week is SAFE.


@olakunlesoriyan, ok sir. What advice can you give me? What books can I read? #SoriyanChats

Olakunle Soriyan ‏@olakunlesoriyan: @MouthPiece_laff #SoriyanChats TRUTH and TRANSFORMATION–a MANIFESTO for AILING NATIONS instructed me. OUTLIERS is another Book.

Olakunle Soriyan ‏@olakunlesoriyan: @MouthPiece_laff #SoriyanChats AS THE FUTURE CATCHES YOU by JUAN ENRIQUE is another. FROM 3RD WORLD TO 1ST WORLD is another. So MANY REALLY.

Olakunle Soriyan ‏@olakunlesoriyan: @MouthPiece_laff #SoriyanChats ASK QUESTIONS. Those WHO ASK QUESTIONS NEVER MISS their WAY. OPEN your EYES..& take a 2nd LOOK at EVERYTHING

Olakunle Soriyan ‏@olakunlesoriyan: @MouthPiece_laff #SoriyanChats Be MINDFUL of what EVERYONE CAN DO & what EVERYONE is DOING. TRUST ME…It RARELY LEADS to VALUE.


Olakunle Soriyan ‏@olakunlesoriyan:  #SoriyanChats a SEEING EYES is NOT NECESSARILY a COMPREHENDING MIND..

Olakunle Soriyan ‏@olakunlesoriyan: #SoriyanChats This is where WE DRAW the CURTAIN. I have to go. STAY HERE..watchout for the NEXT #SoriyanChats. OPEN your EYES. STAY SHARP.
