Francis Okumagba: The 7 Golden Questions to Self-Discovery and Success

Life is full of questions, and only the few who give the correct answers enjoy it. The journey to greatness has many routes in different directions. If you fail to ask yourself honest questions, you will end up on a mission in futility.

There was a certain sage who lived uphill in the countryside. Many noblemen men such as kings, politicians, and executives used to go to him for consultations. His answers were apt, and if you followed his advice, you would win.

Downhill was an inquisitive young boy named Haram. One day, Haram called a few of his friends together and said they should escort him to the old man. He promised them he had just two questions and was sure the old man, for the first time in his life, would lack an answer to the question from a little boy.

Haram took a white dove in his hand, and his friends followed him, full of great expectations. When it came to Haram’s turn, he stepped forward, hiding the bird behind him, and said, “Good day, oh great sage, what am I holding behind me?”

The old man looked at him with a smile and said, “Haram, you are holding a five-month-six-days-old white dove.” Then, Haram, putting his forefinger around the neck of the poor bird, ready to present it alive if the old man said it’s dead and ready to squeeze it to death if he said it’s alive… he asked the last question: “Is the dove dead or alive?”

The sage gave Haram and his curious friends the answer they never forgot for the rest of their lives: “WHETHER THE BIRD IS DEAD OR ALIVE, THE POWER IS IN YOUR HANDS.” He was shocked and left his presence broken.

Friend, the power is in your hands too. The biggest answer to your deepest questions lies within you. As you wake up this morning, can you be honest with yourself? Can you confront yourself and call a constitutional conference within yourself? It is a sad thing on earth for a man to be well known by others but unknown to himself.

See below for my own answers to these questions, and we will take it up from there. Enjoy your day.


“The Power of Questions Part 2”

The journey from failure to success is an internal trip. The open secret for all inventions was because someone asked intelligent questions.

Ralph Waldo Emerson once said, “What lies before us and what lies behind us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us.” Think about it.

Since I’m not just a coach who gives people keys without showing them the doors, here are my personal answers to the 7 Golden Questions I asked earlier.

If you live for nothing, you die for nothing. Life without direction is like a football match without a goalpost. If you cannot script your day on a daily basis, how can you script your entire lifetime? If you cannot contend with men on foot, how can you contend with men on horses?

Enjoy your day and life. I am just a call away for mentorship and business development consultation. 🖐🏻
