Frank Bolaji Irawo once had a limited vision of success
Frank Bolaji Irawo journeyed down a bumpy road to get to where he is today. The son of Nigerian parents, Frank grew up in the UK, but he studied a while in Nigeria before coming back to London for an IT program. He worked for various years in IT but never felt that he was truly successful. To him, money was what defined success. So, Frank tried various ways to make a quick pound. However, his get-rich-quick schemes nearly bankrupted him.
It took near financial failure for Frank to realize that success is much more than the amount of money in your bank account. He began to understand that the quality of his relationships, the clarity in his thinking, and the impact that he makes in the world are other ways to define success.
Frank helps others redefine their success
Once Frank learned that important lesson he knew that he wanted to share it with others. Since he had served as a leader in various capacities, he recognized that he could reach others as a transformational coach. Frank is passionate about helping professionals who feel stuck or unfulfilled. Through his empathetic and transformational coaching style, Frank’s clients are able to achieve greater clarity, impact others, and develop more enriching relationships.
Understand where you are today
Before Frank could move forward, he had to take stock of where he stood in life. This meant recognizing everything that he already had. He realized that he already had so much and had achieved so much in his life.
At this point, Frank discovered that success comes from within. All he had to do was use his innate abilities to drive him forward. Once he accepted where he was already, he realized that he could manifest his own success. Have you acknowledged all that you have? What will it take for you to manifest your own success?
Stand on the shoulders of giants to work your way ahead
After realizing everything that you have in life and everything that you have accomplished it is important to express gratitude for what you have. This expression of gratitude is another step on the road to true success.
Another important realization is that you are not alone. There have been many others that have gone before you and have accomplished what you are working towards. There are many ways you can learn from them: read books, listen to podcasts, or take training courses. With these few steps, you will be well on your way to moving forward toward success.
Listen to this episode to hear some of Frank’s beautiful poetry that he incorporates into his coaching programs. He’ll show you how you can use these poems as a framework to manifest your dreams.
