10 Success Principles For Creatives


Have you noticed something peculiar about the way - I like to do things or project my personal brand as a creative? Whether it is my thoughts, website, articles, products, banners or just my ideas. Well, I know that being a SUCCESS takes the #1 spot on our daily thoughts - for many who crave it. And I've been itching to share some Success PRINCIPLES for CREATIVE people. Yup! Principles, I've been applying daily. And I hope this boost helps you move to the next level..

#1. When an apple falls down from a tree, be CURIOUS to find out why it came down instead of going up! There's got to be some lesson in there. Even if the reasons are negative. Tap into something called 'negative inspiration'. It's an example of something you shouldn't be doing or NEVER do to avoid certain negative results.

#2. ENGAGE in constructive curiosity. Question the ‘‘why’’ and ‘‘why not’’ of things. I talk a lot ...Dang! I ask too many question...Whew! Sorrrrrry it bothers you - But the experts will tell you, there's nothing like over communicating in this business. Isn't that why I'm the Queen of Talk? He he he... *tongue out (Here my radio show - THE NAKED TALK gives me the opportunity to explore constructive curiosity with my guests). I can tell you that I've been blessed learning so much from the different on-air conversations.

#3. Creatively OPPOSE the status quo. Curiosity is the mother of invention. You may not realise this, but most of your new creations, will come from having to question the trend.

Like the time my father and I made coconut rice with boiled peanuts, or when I painted each of the 7 walls in my old living room, a different set of color stripes and pattern. Eclectic? Yea! Maybe...But beautiful!!

Yes, I am constantly challenging the norm.

Who says I must have white walls or even plain walls? Who says I must cook fried rice with Liver, wait, why can't I use POMO instead? Or that our local moi-moi or bean-cake can't be wrapped in one giant polythene bag? Or that a global conference has to be physical, why can't it be virtual? Who says your audience has to only be in Nigeria or the US? Why can't it be Global?) . My point is that the general rule of law or action that is now the status quo, were created by humans, just like you. And boi! they don't have two heads - Yup! It can be CHALLENGED. It can be broken. You only need to apply your mind to productive use.

#4. Sometimes it’s good to think in the OPPOSITE direction. Ah! Hear the word #NAKED and start running far far away...Ha ha hah...now while I could easily have used the word "AUTHENTIC" to project my brand - The Authentic Talk - The Authentic Challenge - Alexandra N' Her Authentic Thoughts! Hahaha...I mean, it's sounds a little more positive. A little more straight forward. The obvious path. Rather, I went in the opposite direction, choosing something risqué instead of following the crowd and doing the obvious. My NAKED brands stand out. I dare say it gets as much attention as it is provokes people to think about its deeper meaning.

#5. You can fly. It’s just that you don’t BELIEVE you have wings. Believe in yourself. Geez! I have been flying all over the world with my ideas, strategically reaching influencers around the globe...I didn't even need to jump on an air plane to make it happen. (I don't even want to think of the amount of stress or how much it will cost me heath-wise or even financially, if I had to travel to different locations a day just to spend 1 hour in Australia, chatting with a Monique Hohnberg or Keli Lenfield and the next hour in India, chatting up a Rohit Girdhar or Jyoti Tiwari and next to Canada, every minute I want to pick Coach, Frankie Picasso's brain or talk to my friend Maxwell Ivey, Nina Bingham or Singer, Scott Krokoff in the USA.

Note that this isn't about travelling, its about FLYING. Many people travel around the world but aren't flying with their ideas, hopes and dreams. They aren't connecting or using the opportunities to build themselves, their visions or their brands. And there are those who also think GROWTH will only come from physically migrating. Well. I'm too much of a patriot, a home buddy. So I  personally chose to migrate my mind instead.

Everyday, I connect with at least, one new super important person around the globe, who is of value to the world and my long term goals. Don't wait for your wings - Believe that you can fly with your ideas and reach people wherever they are, from wherever you are...Oh yes, you can!

#6. Always revisit the SUCCESS formula, ‘‘Think it! Believe it! Demonstrate it! and Have it!’’. I'm always frustrated with people who tell me their one million ideas that don't go anywhere. I've even gotten tired of asking..."Hey, how is it going, Buddy...?". And don't say it's because I think I'm NOW achieving goals. Ha! You really should hear my story of struggle - THE UNCUT VERSION. You'll put up a freaking monument for me. He he he.

See! People always stop at "think it and believe it"....Noooo!!! Noooo!!!! Darling, that's not enough. Many of us truly believe we CAN, but how many of us who do, really go ahead to prove it? You have to go on to DEMONSTRATE it.

I stopped telling people all the beautiful amazing things I believe I can do...Really, it's pointless! They are rolling their eyes, screwing up their nose, laughing at you and waiting for you to falter, dammit! I don't wait for anybody. I just go ahead and DO it. Besides, nobody believes a damn thing you say anyway, until they can SEE it. And truly, it's only until you demonstrate it, that you can actually have it. It's after then, it now becomes a part of your success story.

#7. Embrace UNLIMITED thinking. You lose nothing when you have positive mentality. I keep repeating the word "limiting beliefs"...Geez! I wish I could coin my own "shakra" for exorcising these limiting ghosts. "Huummm....Goooooo....." (Don't laugh! I'm serious).

Honestly, I can't reiterate enough, how important it is to STRIP these negative thoughts about yourself and your vision... Because you can never rise higher than your expectations of yourself. Expect the best, get the best. Expect less - Get less. So you see why its necessary to embrace unlimited thinking? The belief that you are CAPABLE of anything, and you will let nothing get in the way, of making your desires/dreams happen.

In my case, I like challenges. I dare you. Just tell me, I CAN'T do something and WATCH me humiliate you. Why? Because no one has seen the best of me. I'm unlimitable. He he he.

#8. The sky is not your limit. You and your THOUGHTS are. Clap! Clap! Whoosh!! As a thought leader. I won't even waste your time on this one. Do you always THINK that you can't? Then you NEVER will. All I will say is that your MIND is your POWER HOUSE. Everything starts right there. Your mind is the very foundation for success. Build it! Keep buildinnnnggg it. Don't ever stop!

#9. Inventors are extraordinary people, get UNUSUAL! Be different... Have you ever been to any of my websites? See how crazy colorful they are... I configured/designed them ALL myself, including this blog. (Yeah, yeah, I grab any opportunity I get to BRAG). So many people tell me how attractive and eye catching it is. But also filled with personality and warmth.

I could easily have created a bland basic professional design that fades or just blends with the crowd. But I've always loved to STAND out and do my things differently. For Pete sake, I'm an Artiste - A Creative, not a lawyer or a banker or real estate manager. Why should my website or marketing materials reflect otherwise? You should never be afraid to STAND out of the crowd in your niche, do the unusual and inject personality to your ideas or projects. You are an INVENTOR - a creator. Create something others aren't.

#10. When you think outside the box and it doesn’t work, BREAK the freaking box! When I first started my radio show - I'll be honest, it wasn't really working. Was I doing it so people could just listen to me talk and talk for two hours about my own views (I already have this blog for that, don't I?) or should I bring around guests that could impact lives? Should the guests be local or should they be international? Should it be topical or should it be personality based? How would I even find them? How will I deal with the constant epileptic internet connections here in Nigeria? Eish! After a few episodes, I knew I had to change my strategy and goals for the show to make the kind of impact that will align with my vision.

I decided to start connecting with world influencers and make the show UNSCRIPTED & UNCUT. If I have technical issues LIVE on air - Its Africa, Baby - C'mon! - We'll have a damn good laugh about it. I'm not about to let something I have no control over, ruin my chances to be GREAT. If being NAKED means no cover ups, keeping it real and being authentic. Then the show will represent it in every way including any technical mishaps or mistakes. Of course, I want each show to be perfect, but since I can't control that 100% of the time, I have found a way to strategically take that pressure off my chest. With over 4 Million Listens and counting...A passive income and a constantly booked guest list. I know that strategy is working just fine.

So Yes! If it's NOT fitting in? If it's NOT working? What the hell, are you waiting for, get out of your COMFORT zone, take out the damn box and change your strategy. Don't give it up. Just break the box - That itself is a major change in STRATEGY, or what do you think?

The True Secret To Gaining Success


One of my new mentees asked me during one of my #AskAlex Virtual Coaching Sessions.

"Alex, What is the SECRET to Success?" Geez, I won't bother to give you Google answers or what many might say. No, I won't!

You might be PASSIONATE, driven, hardworking, dedicated...but what knowledge, are you really applying to all these virtues? Are you spinning the same old tired wheels and hoping it will get you to your final destination? Are you stuck applying the same ole information you've been taught since you were in your diapers? Eish!

For me, the secret to success is actually LEARNING! It's investing in your learning process. Not letting a day go by without learning something new. Ah! I'm notorious for finding even the smallest lessons. My six year old son - Ray, is one of my many teachers. I'm learning to see the world through his eyes. In fact, I've become more adventurous and more open to trying out risque ideas, and making new discoveries just from my interaction with him. Things, I would otherwise never had done. Now, they are lessons, for I am always learning.

So for you to GROW, you have to be willing to Learn, Un-learn, Re-learn. You have to take advantage of every opportunity you get, to squeeze in something brand new, or a new version of what you thought you already knew, that you can APPLY to your vision, goals or dreams.

And READING is the basic foundation of learning. I recently asked a man who is interested in me, if he likes to read and he said NO! (such a complete turn off for me). He watches documentaries. Not bad! But, I believe there are far more articles & books than there are documentaries on any given subject.

To be honest, saying I watch documentaries, is like saying "I learn from National Geography Channel". In my opinion, that's really not enough. Nooooo! C'mon!

In fact most successful entrepreneurs/geniuses will tell you they all traded in their TELEVISION. Yeaaaaa, TV is a major distraction - when you have big goals to achieve buddy.

I myself, haven't watched much of it, in two years, except for one hour every three days, to get my news or catch a particular series. And the sacrifice has been rewarding. I'm no longer a couch potato stuck to my remote control. I have achieved so much more with my time. In fact I prefer to read my news these days.

Yes, I like documentaries too, podcasts, video tutorials, webinars... (There are so many learning tools, materials and opportunities out there, you can take advantage of). But I could never trade the big gun - an opportunity to READ, even if it's the leaflet for my prescription medicine. Hahahah. (I'm weird I know, but I love it).

I'm always fazed when people say they don't have the time to read. Shuucks! Its like saying you don't have the time to GROW...And yet, you want to be successful? (Hahahah! Pour me a bloody scotch, Dammit!) How? Please tell me how you intend to pull it off. I am so eager to learn your tips and tricks.

Ah! Seriously, You hate to read? Uh Oh! I'm sorry to say this, Hunnie. But you've got a long way to go, trying to figure it ALL by yourself.

Remember "Learning is from Birth to Death". No one will live long enough to EXPERIENCE everything themselves. Learn from those who already have the experience you need. And stop wasting your precious time, guessing your way through life.

Happy New Week Truth-Seekers! Go Conquer!

P.S: It's 13 Days to go. Take advantage of a massive LEARNING opportunity from wherever you are in the world, at THE NAKED CHALLENGE Creative Mastery Global Summit!

Never Been To A Twitter Party?

Curious about how to join our Twitter party? The first thing you need to know is that you don’t have to get dressed up to attend. Come as you are, NAKED or in pajamas if you wish.

Twitter chats are virtual gatherings. You attend from the comfort of your own home.

A Twitter Party is basically just a scheduled online chat/conversation that focuses on a particular topic. The conversation is carried on via tweets, all of which include the same hashtag. This keeps the conversation organized and allows participants to easily follow and contribute to the stream.

Twitter chats provide a way for you to chat about an interesting topic, they can help you gain valuable knowledge, and for brands, they are an excellent fun way to engage with old & new followers.

And we are looking forward to not only engaging with you, but also giving away some other fun gifts - Like books, memberships, free coaching etc. Don't forget its a PARTY!and with party comes gifts.


Here’s How To Join In and Participate:

At Scheduled time, Get on Twitter and click on the search button. Search for #TNCsummit. a series of tweets will pop up. Tune in and contribute. Joining in, or even just listening in, is very easy. Just click on the chat’s hashtag to see the tweet stream and read all the tweets in the conversation.

You can participate in chats by tweeting with the hashtag through your twitter account or through the same tool you use to monitor the party.

The single most important thing to remember, however, is to include the chat’s hashtag [#TNCsummit] in all of the tweets you write. If you leave the hashtag out of your tweet, it won’t make it into the chat at all.

Tips and Tricks:

Most Twitter Parties have a Moderator/Host who introduces the chat, welcomes people who join in, post questions and generally help keep the conversation well organized.

Here's how to pose or answer questions. This is usually simple. Questions are marked like this: Q1, Q2; you can respond with a corresponding Answer using A1, A2 at the beginning of your tweet to help people follow your train of thought.

Introduce yourself when you join the chat. This is a good idea, even if you plan to listen more than you talk or aren’t sure you have anything to contribute at all.

Direct your tweets by either mentioning ME - @AlexOkoroji or a particular participant/speaker or expert. If your tweet is off topic, however, leave off the chat’s hashtag. Only use the hashtag for on-topic tweets that you want all participants to see.

I look forward to seeing you THERE!

Stay Authentic & Keep Winning!

PODCAST 062: Never Be Average w/ Relationship Experts & Speakers - Sarah Rusca & Samantha Messersmith

Today's guests spent over a decade climbing the corporate ladder, following the path of SECURITY and society’s definition of what it takes to have “made it”. During that time they also faced real life challenges including divorce, unhealthy friendships, getting kicked out of college, losing a career, infidelity, and betrayal.

7 Ways To Truly Live A Life Worth Something...


Today, I've been thinking - Muhammad Ali is gone. Shuucks!! So is PRINCE and many who have left indelible marks in their niche. You start to realise...DANG! Everyone is going to die mehn... Someday! No matter how great they are. Whoosh! This shit will go down 6 feet. We all will. That's a definite (nothing to be scared of there) - But WAIT a sec! Not everyone is going to LIVE! Geez!

And if you THINK about it, you'll realise how much impact some of these greats have had on the rest of the world, not without their FEARS, limitations, flaws or personal challenges but they still went on to LIVE and DOMINATE - No excuses! And they will forever be remembered. Oh Yeaaa! You Betcha!!

So I want to ask. If you GO today - God Forbid! Will you be remembered? By who? Your family? -(the ones you have a bad relationship with), Your Friends? - (Wait! The ones you betrayed and barely have?), Your Church? - (Oh! They are too busy celebrating Jesus and Pastor XYZ, sorry brother), Your Community? (You didn't give a rat ass about them, why should they care you are gone), Society? - (Sorry Miss, No one even knew you existed). God! (Oh no! I can't speak on his behalf --- But, I think you gats to be bloody MEMORABLE for you to stick out so BRIGHTLY out of his "billions" of children)

How will you be remembered, my friend? The lady who did nothing but take a million selfies a day? The man who BROKE many hearts. The father who never CARED for his children? The wife who was never around for her husband? The CREATIVE who stole another person's work of Art? The LIAR who's worse than a thief? The rich who stole from the poor? The leech who fested on the enterprising? Or the person who INSPIRED manyyyyy? Ha!

Which one are YOU?

So, are you really LIVING or just merely existing? Is your PRESENCE worth much to others? Or are you just taking up SPACE and pretty much going with the flow? If you die, will the world celebrate you or will you just be another statistic?

Oh, I know you are going to die someday (that's not in question) - but wait, what are you going to do to LIVE?

What are you going to do to truly make your stay here on earth count for something way deeper than just yourself?

Here Are 7 Ways To Live A Life Worth Something...


#1) Focus on the Big Picture, Without Taking Your Eyes Off The Small One


Yes, we all have great big plans of things we want to ACCOMPLISH. Sometimes, we get consumed by chasing them or frightened by how big they are - That we forget to celebrate the small things we achieve. Yes! Its important not to take your eyes off those big goals, but the only way to truly do that, is to really concentrate on all the little things you can do, the tiny choices you can make and all the small steps you can take, to move you closer and closer to that goal, so you can fit in, all the small pieces to create your AWESOME big picture.

#2) Live In The REAL World 


Some of the biggest issues we encounter daily are mostly connected to unrealistic expectations, people have about Love, Life, Career, Money, Spirituality and even Relationships. Many are not in touch with themselves and their TRUTH, neither do they have a presence of mind. We often times, lie to ourselves and create a false reality that stifles our own GROWTH, so much so we even dislike those who keep it real.

Being imperfect, having flaws, challenges and embarrassing moments are only part of living. Even the greatest have had their fair dose of reality bite.

I'm always amazed at people who want to live on earth like they are in heaven (that's not to say we shouldn't aspire for more). But just imagine how UNHAPPY a person who lives above their means must truly feel (irrespective of the glamour they present), even Jesus Christ didn't act like he expected some beautiful maid angel-servants to tend to his every need here on earth, despite being the son of God.

He didn't prance around like I imagine he possibly could in heaven. Instead he became MAN and truly lived in every way, like one of us.

#3) Live Your Dreams By Conquering Your FEARS


Oh Gosh! I don't know if there's anything I have ever attempted without a little bit of fear in my heart. The first time I fell in love. I was SCARED to death of all the emotions I was feeling.

Or was it the first time I stood in front of a camera in 2005 and recited a monologue. Geez! I probably peed a thousand times, out of sheer embarrassment - in fact, I was afraid for the first 3 and half years of my career as an Actress. Why? Don't you sometimes dislike the idea of re-enacting scenarios, your real life self is wayyyy too smart or too proud to be caught doing. Like when you have to fart, steal in a movie scene or play some dumb airhead beauty. Whew!You dig?

Sometimes, I just felt so silly talking to myself and trying to observe the faces of the other actors and crew watching me. How does my mouth shape, when I talk? - Lord! They are so freaking wide, when I smile. Is that a wrinkle forming on my forehead? Twitching... Twitching... Oh! What if I kiss this actor and he suddenly leaves a bucket of sloppy saliva in my mouth. Yuck!! Nooooo! Ewww....Hahahah.

The first song I ever wrote, my best friend's elder brother - Ajiri teased and teased us to tears. When I think about it now, that song was ridiculous. "Oh we called it STRANGERS" I swear, I don't know what I was thinking when I wrote that song with my underground teenage girl band - THE ALTERNATES, but you know what? 48 songs after that, I'm definitely not a corny songwriter. Neither am I a terrible radio host, or a bad actor, despite my first few hiccups which resulted from fear.

Even now, as confident as I've become...I still have moments of FEAR. Days, when I'm sweating profusely wondering if I can provide for my son, days when I'm thinking a man only wants me for what he can get out of me or even when I put together powerful projects like my July event - THE NAKED CHALLENGE Creative Mastery Global Summit with 25 Creative Influencers from around the world - I'll be honest. I don't think anyone based in Nigeria has ever attempted this. Hosting A LIVE Internet Conference with 25 Speakers around the world. What for?

So yes, I ask myself if I'm okay...Perhaps! Remember, my First Anniversary Celebration on THE NAKED TALK with 16 guests? This right here is 50 times more stressful. So, I wonder if I'm normal for attempting to do everything by myself, including designing the webpage  Do you think I'm not scared? Do you think it hasn't crossed my mind that it could ALL turn out worse than I planned. Do you think I don't worry about failing the speakers and everyone else who has high expectations...Oh Lordyyy Lord! I Do! But I'll rather give it my best shot and FAIL at it, than not attempt to try at all.

And every day, as I go...I'm discovering new things about myself, about this journey and loving the excitement of potential success.

#4) Be The Lover, Not A Fighter


Oh, I had to learn this one the hard way. I had to learn to try to do everything and speak always from a position of love. The truth is that LOVE colours everything, It gives everything you do so much more meaning and life becomes beautiful. To be able to love others in spite of their filthy heart or bad intentions. To cook with the purest love, eat with love, mingle and just GIVE and keep giving all the LOVE we can muster.

Imagine everyone speaking at your funeral about how sweet and LOVING you were. There you go...

That's why we are here. That's why, we were CREATED. We were created to love.


#5) Please...Don't Over Complicate Things


So an old friend and I had been interacting for some weeks. Truth is, I find him interesting but I really can't say there's anymore to it, for now... even though he always tries to get me to confess an emotion I'm CLEARLY, not sure I feel yet. I have tried to explain that I am not the type to deny something I feel, If I do feel it. But he does think otherwise, because he thinks I might STILL be stinging from a bad relationship and may have put up a wall. Ding! Ding! Ding! Thing is, I feel like he needs ME to admit my feelings, so he can feel comfortable doing the same. But that's the problem, you can't hold back your feelings because you think the other person is doing the same - or EXPRESS it only when the other person does/ or is willing to. That's just so damn complex - Why be so complicated?

Okay! I've heard his theory a few times, about this so called invisible wall (which is honestly a figment of their imagination - I guess sometimes people will rather prefer you were hurting than to believe that you just don't care) and that's where so many people are wrong. Yes, I've had a few not-so-great relationships, but I can tell you that with all the lessons learned - there are no more ghosts in my past. No exes hanging over my head or thoughts...And I certainly have no qualms with LOVING someone, if I find a good man truly WORTH loving. Yes! My standards may have changed, my perception of love may be different, (oh sure, you have to give me good reasons why you should be worth my time, and why I should be afraid to lose you), other than that, I'm still the same ole Love Bunny Alex - Why the need to over complicate things?

Sometimes, I get asked weird questions from different people? Oh Alex, when are you coming around my neighborhood? When are you going to be in this part of town? Why haven't I heard from you? Why don't you understand how I feel? Last I remember, I'm not a mind reader (if you don't share how you feel and EXPLAIN to me...how am I supposed to understand? Err... If you didn't hear from me, then why didn't you call me? I mean, I could have been dying or been in a hospital too...yeah, yeah, yeah... I could possibly tell you when next I would be in your neighborhood - except, if you are not the one inviting me - then its probably not to see you. Hahaha...Yeah! Its not like I just roam around town for no good reason?)

So most times, I'm stuck thinking...Wouldn't it have been much easier for these person(s) to simply Invite Me (Hey Alex, I would love for you to come around), Call Me (I was thinking about you, thought to call you), or (I haven't heard from you, I was worried) or Share how they feel (This is how I feel Alex, you hurt my feelings) or (I love you)? Isn't it just way easier to be direct and straight forward. If you want to do something just go ahead and do it. Don't complicate things. Don't over think it.

Don't live your life suppressing all your feelings and over analysing all your thoughts. If YOU are

Missing Somebody?..... Call!

Want To Meet Up?..... Invite!

Want to Be Understood?.... Explain!

Have Questions?.... Ask!

Don't Like Something?.... Say It!

Like Something?.... State It!

Want Something?.... Ask For It!

Love Someone?.... Show It!

#6) Sometimes, You Have To Let Go to Hold On


Oh, its hard not to live in this world without feeling grudges. Geez! People sure know how to take a piss. But still, imagine you holding on to every single WRONG thing a family, friend, colleague and maybe even society has done to hurt you, upset you or frustrate you. Not only would you be burning your bridges, but you would be living a life filled with BITTERNESS & ANGER. And that sure is a recipe for disaster.

I have learned, that sometimes you win by letting go. Instead let it go by channeling that pain into PASSION. Show them that they may have tried to bend you, but they could NEVER break you.

#7) GIVE To Others - Knowing That Giving Is A Measure of Greatness


What do you have in abundance? Ideas? Money? Knowledge? Experience? Time? Skills?Affection? Wisdom? Talent? Connection? Find a way to GIVE it and just keep Giving.

Look at those who have inspired you, you will see a consistently unique trait they all have, they were all philanthropic in many ways. From Mother Theresa to Oprah, Michael Jackson, Mohammed Ali, Ellen Degeneres, Bill Gates...Name them. These people gave not only their money, but their time, knowledge and resources. They were never afraid to share all of life's experience with others.

Are you someone who is afraid to share your Knowledge with the world? Do you hoard information? Suppress your Gift/Talent or even Keep your connections hidden or undisclosed. You are doing yourself a disservice. If there's anything I personally enjoy, Its bringing people together and connecting them to add VALUE to one another.

Remember, that no one ever forgets those who give to them when they need it. Sometimes, it could just be a shoulder to cry on, kind words, a big hug or a warm smile. Only GREAT people know how to dig into themselves and pull out something worth giving.

So what you are you going to do to start living a LIFE worth something? Which of these are you yet to embrace. Do let me know.
