Aig Imoukhede, Segun Agbaje, Hebert Wigwe & Tayo Aderinokun (as seen in the 1st picture) became friends very early on in their banking careers and all went to form 2 of the biggest 5 banks in Nigeria, GTB (Segun & Tayo) and Access bank (Aig & Hebert).

Superstars Ryan Gosling, Justin Timberlake, Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera met in the ’90s (as seen in the 2nd picture) when they were teens and were cast in The Mickey Mouse Club, which led to a close friendship.

Pastors Yemi Davids (of Global Impact Church), Godman Akinlabi (of Elevation Church), and Bolaji Idowu (of Harvesters Church) have been friends since school days (see them circled in the 3rd picture).

Jay-Z, Biggie, Busta Rhymes, and DMX (as seen in the 4th picture) all attended the same high school, George Westinghouse Career and Technical Education High School in Brooklyn, New York.

Barewa College, Zaria, Kaduna State (formerly Katsina College), produced 5 Nigerian presidents, including Tafawa Balewa who was Prime Minister of Nigeria from 1960 to 1966, and four heads of state of Nigeria. It’s also produced 20 governors in Nigeria.

8 Presidents of the USA graduated from Harvard University: John Adams, John Quincy Adams, Rutherford B. Hayes, John F. Kennedy, Franklin Delano Roosevelt, Theodore Roosevelt, George W. Bush, and Barack Obama.

What can you infer from all these?

Coincidence? Hmm. Perhaps, it is but looking deeper, it’s most likely more of something else.


Realize that your association builds you up or breaks you down – as friends, the conversations you have, the interests you share, and the places you go, etc all program your ‘destiny.’

If you are to sincerely look at and assess the 4 closest people to you today, you will easily see your future!

If you have 4 fools as friends, check well, you are the 5th fool!

This new week, be intentional about who you associate with. If you seem to lack a strong vision, motivation & discipline for your finances, career, business, relationship or health & fitness, seek to associate with strong visionaries whose vision, motivation and discipline are propelling them on despite their challenges, and you will be fired up.

It’s another opportunity to create your life’s story as the film producer, carefully choose the cast that will be the star actors in it as they will largely determine whether it will be a blockbuster or not. Your dream life is valid, & you deserve it.

You are unstoppable!
