CREATIVITY Isn't Dreaming Of The Cake, Its Actually Blowing Out The Candles...


How many times have you wished to BE something? Or to DO something that just stayed a beautiful shiny idea in your pretty big head? Huh? Whether its to start that dream business, or to write your first book, design your own website or a fashion label, maybe start your music career, travel the world, become an Influencer, be financially independent or just be a world changer?

Well, I dreamt so many times about being a world changer, myself...But it wasn't until yesterday on a very important skype call for a social Initiative that I'm co facilitating, with a prestigious South African Organisation, did the amazing COO call me a Thought Leader. Wow!! You would think a woman who named her blog ALEXANDRA N' HER NAKED T-H-O-U-G-H-T-S would realise how much of a thought leader she has become, sharing her empowering ideas and thoughts with the world, huh? Well, not ME! Hahaha. I have never ascribed that title to myself. Geez! But what have I been doing for the last two years and counting...but create innovative ideas that have become reality and influence people to either replicate it or take similar action.

We talked about so much, and I offered a myriad of ideas - I have to admit that is my forte (especially with my #AskAlex Coaching) - Thinking on the spot and creating strategies to help people achieve their goals. And they were very impressed, at how CREATIVE my ideas were.

And it sort of takes me back to last week Thursday, which was my son's 6th birthday.

It is the first birthday he was really AWARE of and had been looking forward to. Of course, he was too YOUNG to remember the massive party I threw for his 1st birthday, 2nd year baptism or even his 3rd and 4th birthday. He was too young to acknowledge or even appreciate the energy it took.

So this year, even though I knew I wasn't throwing a party. My father had asked Ray what he wanted and he said he wanted one thing "CAKE & CANDLES...". Are you kidding me?? Just cake and candles....? "Yes Mummy, I want to make a wish..." hmm...Oh well, that's easy, right!

So my father gave my brother the task of getting the cake. I had asked my cousin Kachi to help me pick up the gifts I had paid for...(I knew Ray would be blown away from just unwrapping all that many gifts). I had a couple of meetings but I wouldn't have been able to do much, because I needed to attend those meetings and none of it was in the same direction with the cake shop. Today, it was a family thing, dinner at my Dad's....my mom would cook. Awesome. It was her grand son's birthday. She had designed something fantastic for him to wear.

Ray was decked in his fab traditional attire, looking like a little mulato prince. Kachi picked up the gifts I bought (wrapped separately- was a new football, a wristwatch, a colouring book + crayons, a Nintendo, a splash gun and a bubble set) WOW! Like I imagined - HE was blown, "Yay! Mummy I love you. (kissing my tummy) You the best..." in fact, he was too blown to eat the bucket of Ice cream and pizza he had been craving. Soon after, My brother brings the cake but there's a problem...A big problem...Shit! NO CANDLES!!! Whaat??? That wasn't the plan. Ray had specifically said he wanted cakes and candles...And we promised he would get it. The Idea was to make a wish, not give the cake a kiss. Whew!

My brother called my mom, I called my Dad after we had driven round and couldn't find cake candles anywhere in the neighbourhood. If I drove out far east, I would miss a LIVE radio show I was scheduled to be guest on. And I needed to write a blog post. Dang! That's not good. Would do I do? So I spoke with my brother and he confirmed my Dad and his driver would pick the candles on their way back. Okay great! I can move on with life.

My dad gets out of his meeting late, gets stuck in traffic and doesn't get to the shopping mall before it closed for the night. Whaat?? So NOW we have a HUGE huge problem and we needed to be creative about it.

We understood how important it was for him to blow out the candles and make that wish, so we decided...You know what, no cake candles...how about we get regular candles? Yep! Don't look at me like that (I know...I know...) What choice did I have? The goal was for my son to be HAPPY that he got his wish...And you know I don't quit until I accomplish a goal. So I stuck the old fashion regular candles (praying it all goes fast before we have WAX all over the cake). We sang...Ray made his wish and blew out the candles. We achieved our goal. Yaaay!

See how creative we were about it all. Being creative is about finding unusual solutions to actualising goals.

Ray's Birthday Cake and 6 Wax Candles...Whew!

Many people know that Creativity is a phenomenon whereby something new and valuable is formed, whether it is in intangible forms (such as an idea, a scientific theory, a song, article, design, a business or a joke) . It could also be a physical object (such as a building, a car, book, or a bottle of drink).

But many also forget that Creativity isn't only about imagining ...but the act of turning your new and imaginative ideas into REALITY. Creativity is characterized by the ability to see the world in new ways, to find hidden strategies, patterns, systems and ways to make connections between seemingly unrelated ideas, and use it to generate solutions.

How many times have I gotten a strange idea for a blog post out of a conversation with a friend, or from watching people talk football (And I'm not a football fan... I can't even bear to see grown men chase after a round object). How many times have I gotten an idea from watching my son play car race or even subway surf? That's the BEAUTY of having a highly imaginative mind like mine. My mind works round the clock. Sow a tiny seed in my head...and I can give you multiple variations of things you can do with it. But you see, long before now... I WASTED so many years creating ideas that went no where, ideas people never heard or saw.

And that's the big problem. Too many people have ideas...but these same people have excuses for why those brilliant ideas have become NOTHING. "I don't have money, I don't have time, I need resources, its on the internet- I wish it was physical, who will buy it? Its because he has connections". They have all sorts of ridiculous excuses for why they never take action, they forget that a major part of a brilliant idea is also strategically planning how it will all come to LIFE.

Hence, the theory that creativity starts and stops only at IMAGINING is a big fallacy. Ideas need to become REALITY for it to in fact be CREATIVE. So yes, creativity isn't just about dreaming of the cake, its about blowing out the candles. And for you to blow out the candles, the cake needs to EXIST. Ding! Ding! Ding!

So there you go... What steps are you currently taking to make sure you can blow out the candles on your dream project, because you are willing to make it HAPPEN?

Being Vulnerable Takes More Courage...


Two days ago, on The Ms Reason Show in the US, I told the amazing host, Marie Summers that I'm not a weak woman who needs to learn how to be strong...But in fact, a STRONG woman who is learning how to be vulnerable. - {The underlining reason for why I advocate for EXPRESSION} You can listen to my Interview HERE.

We are constantly told to be strong, how to keep it in, SUCK it up, bear it all, don't complain, tolerant the things we can't handle and not shed a single tear. And that's the number one reason for why there are so many broken people with suppressed emotions and psychopaths trolling, who never got a chance to exorcise their demons and ghosts from the past.

But I have learned that vulnerability is emotional exposure. it is the core of the heart, the center of meaningful human experience... and sometimes, strength isn't in how tough you are on the outside, but how COURAGEOUS you are to exhibit your vulnerability and transparency on the inside, especially in a world... where many MASK who they really are, what they really want and how they really 'feel' about life. MANY!!!

I can't help but respect a person, who is not afraid to EXPRESS love, even when they know the other person might NOT reciprocate & love them back. It takes courage. Damn IT!

Or someone who is not ashamed to sincerely APOLOGISE for their wrongs, without being prodded because their conscience and relationships are way more important that their EGO. That also takes courage.

The one who is not embarrassed to ASK for help, because their determination to resolve a problem, achieve a goal or reach a destination is far more important than the FEAR of rejection, failure or mockery they might attract. Oh dang, that surely takes courage.

So you see, It doesn't take strength... it actually takes being VULNERABLE to Ask Questions, Seek Answers, Show Empathy, Feel Regret, Trust or EXPRESS Love. There are too many emotions that don't require strength, including finding 'HAPPINESS'. because it is not easy to put yourself out there, knowing you could easily be hurt, attacked or harmed.

Still, rather than protect ourselves from impending disaster, we take a leap of FAITH knowing its impossible to experience genuine emotion, without taking any risk... because vulnerability is the only bridge to build AUTHENTIC connection.

So, before you mock someone for revealing these part of themselves, ask yourself, if YOU indeed are COURAGEOUS enough to be as open and as vulnerable as they have been with you.

I'm curious to know the ANSWER to that. Shoot me a reply!

Trust? Who Can Be You, Better Than YOU?


I'm not a brand strategist, so I can't exactly tell you what the PR play books will rather say.

But this is what I will tell you from the streets of hard knocks rebuilding my own brand from ground zero. Here is a word you must remember every day...That word is TRUST.

Can people trust what you say? Can they trust, that you will do what you say you will do? Are you considered ORIGINAL or a phoney? But wait a sec! If they don't really know your back story, how can they even trust you???

Want to build a platform, build better engagement, build a hard rock fan base or LOYAL customers? People who actually patronise you and buy your products or services. Your operative word should be 'trust'... know that no one will a buy a product or do business with a brand they don't trust. And these days, your brand is not what your advertisers say you are. Your brand is actually what your CUSTOMERS/audience say you are.

So while creating that perception. Is the perception you create relatable? Is it based on falsehood, or is it based on authenticity? The problem with branding these days, is that people create a perception of perfection that is totally non-relatable to the purchasing majority. You can advertise all you want? But they won't believe you. You can wear the finest clothes, take pictures chewing dollars for breakfast, lunch and dinner...or bath in champagne. They still won't care, because it is not their everyday reality.

You can gain trust and credibility by being AUTHENTIC, by being real.

Look at Prince, Michael Jackson, Ellen Degeneres, Madonna, Oprah, Martin Luther, Mandela, Mary Slessor even Fela... none of them were/are perfect...oh they had/have flaws, but still they defied the norm, went against popular beliefs, did their own thing, kept it real and created their own IDENTITY. Their legacy is timeless.

So why do you want to FIT in when you can stand out? Why do you want to be forgotten, when you can be REMEMBERED for being true?

Why do you want to be society's version of you, instead of your authentic self? Why do you want to cover up your uniqueness, instead of standing NAKED in all your warts & glory. I don't know why?

But I can tell you that the only thing that can SPOTLIGHT you from a crowded market place, even in the midst of people who do the exact same business, work or craft that you do, is your AUTHENTICITY, because in truth, no one can do a better job at being you, than YOU!

So keep It Real and Build TRUST!

I Can't Believe Its 6 Years, My ReBirth... Whoop!


I first met my SWEETHEART this day, 6 years ago... And they had told me then, that I wasn't going to pop him like I imagined. Somehow I skipped reading those bits in the 'P' books I had invested tons of money buying to prepare myself for D Day.

Dang! I wept... I wept for my little tiny 'P'... I was worried his big head will cost my P a fortune. Not that the P down there isn't worth much, but I was actually worried more for my (P)ocket, than for the (P)inky in my (P)anties. I wouldn't be the first woman to have mine slacked, would I? Hahaha. Well, we had planned for a normal delivery which was already exorbitant.

Multiply that, by 600%. Ray started costing us a whopping fortune, right from the delivery room. Chai! Spending 550,000 Naira in delivery fees 6 years ago, no be YAM. Check am na! Hian! I cried o. That's how much the C-Section cost us. In fact, if you put me in a crying scene now with Nkiru Sylvanus - I promise you, all I have to do is remember the sound of money leaving his account "chin-chang" and there the tears will flow so much that Nkiru herself will hand me her CROWN. Lol.

So yes, my small yellow pawpaw came to the world, as if his father was Mark Zuckerberg. And then Madam Matron said in her husky motherly voice - "Please, Mrs Alex. Don't use soap for this boy o. He has a sensitive skin, If you want to maintain his fair skin. Use only Soap free, something like Sebamed. I won't forgive you o, if you spoil his fine skin."

Ha! Egba mi! On top my own pikin again, you won't forgive me...see blackmail. Rubbish! Last I checked, he was my son...MINEEEEE!!!

So that's how, I'd use a #500 soap, and this my small little chori would use a #1860 soap, ...for 6 years. Let's do the maths na. 1 x 21(days) x 13 (weeks) x 6 (years) x 1860 naira = And that's for soap alone. Oh it even trippled with the recent dollar rise. I now buy his lotion for almost #4000, until I realised come o, this boy is almost 6, those kids who use dettol soap and pears don't have two heads. I won't talk about shelter, food, clothes, shoes, school, toys and health care (for the health care GOD has been SUPER, we haven't visited a hospital in years), I guess our big man up there knows, I don't have any man to pat my back or rub my feet, as soon as I start pacing down a hospital reception. Naaaa!!

I won't lie, I thought I wouldn't have to ride alone on this journey. That he will always have everything he NEEDS from both his parents. That we will both be available to guide him, whether we stayed together forever or moved our separate ways. Of course, life teaches you that nothing ever goes the way you PLAN...And not too shortly, I learned that lesson the hard way. Had to raise this beautiful boy on my own for 5 and 1/2 years. I can't even start to explain the amount of physical, financial, emotional, psychological PAIN & sacrifices, I've had to endure to 'unexpectedly' raise him by myself. He was just a 6 months old baby when I left.

Today he is 6 YEARS OLD - Beautiful, Strong, Loving, Gifted, Independent Minded And Intelligent beyond his years. I could never understand why any father could abandon a beautiful soul like him, when many will give anything to have one like him . BUT today I UNDERSTAND... I look at him and I GET it. God was preparing me for a journey...Because HE never gives us a CHALLENGE we can't overcome. I get it now...And I'm proud of who I am today and where I am. Ray and I have come far, and he has been instrumental to my process, his birth jerked me, renewed me and positioned me to GROW and Today, I can poke my chest without a doubt in my mind, that our future from henceforth will be colored with nothing but Golden Rays, because he is my biggest achievement- my biggest MUSE and my every reward. And I'm glad that it's for him I paved a meaningful path, and in him I INVEST all my love, time, money & patience.

Thank you to the few amazing friends, who never left us or judged me. Who stood by us and held our hands during dark clouds. I could never forget you, even when I'm silent - Sarah, Biodun, Pamela, Nina, Ehi, Sammie, Matilda, Yemi, Shan, Fisayo, Vanessa, Linda, Kalu, Moyo, Emeka, Tunde, George, Victoria, John... My wish is that you never NEED me, but IF and when you do...that I'll be in a position to do for you what you have done for US and more.

So please say a PRAYER or two for the both of us and don't forget to wish Mr Sunshine himself - Ray Okoroji- Captan, A Happy 6th Birthday. It might be his birthday BUT its also my RE-Birth day.

Stay Authentic & Keep Winning!

FEATURE: American Author & Ambassador Of Happiness -Maura Sweeney, Invites You To Step Out & Take A Challenge


Are you in need of a paradigm CHANGE? A new narrative on your life's purpose? How about new ideas to replace those that no longer work for you? Maura Sweeney is a living example of Reinvention of the Self. She TRANSITIONED from a life-draining background groomed for a career in law and has blossomed during midlife into an Author, Podcaster, Huffington Post Blogger, International Speaker and next gen Thought Leader.

She is also the trademarked Ambassador of Happiness. Having mastered the process of transformation herself, she will LIVE at THE NAKED CHALLENGE: Creative Mastery Global Summit, to share what keeps us confined as well as what compels us to grow out of our comfort zones and into our bigger, bolder and brighter selves. Conveying previous failures, foibles and FEARFULNESS, she'll demonstrate how to convert your own life into something fierce, fiery and audaciously fun.

Maura Sweeney will engage, INSPIRE and equip you to REINVENT yourself - in a way that fuels your happiness and empowers your authenticity.



Event - (DAY 1, July 4) Focus- Reinvention of Self, Mastering the Art of Writing and Blogging...

A LITTLE MORE ABOUT MAURA SWEENEY...

As an Author, Podcaster, International Speaker, Huffington Post Contributor and Creator of the Foundations of Happiness eCourse, Maura Sweeney guides others on the path of “Living Happy – Inside Out.”



As a child, Maura dreamed of boarding planes and meeting new friends in foreign CULTURES. She also envisioned herself as a goodwill ambassador. Yet growing up, she was limited to the front steps of her childhood home and groomed for a CAREER she didn’t want. Despite several disconnects between her inward desires and outward freedom of expression, Maura has successfully transitioned from childhood “cry baby” to the Trademarked Ambassador of Happiness.

Leaving law school at the midpoint of her studies, Maura set out on a PATH to discover her own sense of happiness, SUCCESS and authenticity – by following her own internal GPS.

She’s traveled to nearly 60 countries; hosted missionaries, senior athletes and exchange students from several others; and serves on the board of Empowered Voices which supports community development projects in the Mubende district of Uganda.

With WISDOM gained from volunteering plus her background as a corporate manager, business owner and home schooling mom, Maura purveys good news that uplifts, unifies and EMPOWERS others. Inspiring positive leadership, influence and paradigm-shifting ideas, Maura aims to advance all of humanity into a happier state of being.

If you are feeling confined, confused or in need of a new life narrative and authentic and meaningful career, connect with Maura at her www.Maura4u.com website and grab your access ticket to join her at the online summit HERE.
