12 Motivational Quotes Of Kennedy Ekezie Joseph Compiled By Thefamousnaija

1 You need to consider the future and think “what might my life look like if I were doing the right things incrementally everyday?”

There’s absolutely no doubt you can be slightly better tomorrow than you are today. 

Have respect for yourself. Have fear for yourself. 

2 Be terrified of the right things: it births discipline.

Associate with people whose lives would be improved if they saw your life improve. 

Then watch the #GOOD unfold!

3 Masculinity is not fragile. Masculinity is not toxic. It’s not fundamentally pillaging. It’s not fundamentally rape culture and exploitation.

I like the masculine spirit. It is necessary. Dear men & boys, may we continue to show up in excellence and be our best selves. 

4 You SHOULD be afraid of taking risks and pursuing something that’s meaningful. 

But you SHOULD BE MORE afraid of staying where you are if it’s making you miserable. 

5 You’re way more powerful than you think. You’re blind to your own strengths. 

You can reorient your life to the highest possible good that you can conceive of if you stopped wasting time, if you stopped lying to yourself. 

Success is a daily habit. 


6 No road is long with good company. 

No ambition is too big with the requisite support. 

Associate yourself with wise people of good quality. 

I’ve learned FOR SURE, that it is always better to be alone than to be in useless company.

7 When you are thankful for what you have as opposed to being envious of what others have, you will always win.

When I see you in Ibiza, on a trip, floating in a swan, popping champagne, I’m thrilled for you. I don’t have any FOMO. #80Nigerians #Nigeria

8 Your life doesn’t have anything to do with my journey, my macro, my mission. 

Do not compare yourself to other people whom you know very little about.

Now step into this mindset and focus on your journey. 

9 If you fulfill your obligations everyday, you don’t have to worry about the future. 

#WednesdayThoughts #WednesdayWisdom 

10 As you move forward in life, the probability that you’re going to get it completely right the first time you try, is ZERO!

You are not alone. You are not a failure for failing the first, second, third, or umpteenth time.

The essence of your existence far supersedes that hurdle.

11 Happy International Youth Day! 

We the youths have the responsibility to create the future that we and the future generations will live in. We can make more prosperous and less corrupt.

It requires deep commitment and individual responsibility.

#IYD #2019 #IYD2019 

12 One of the disadvantages of being young is that most of the tragedy you’ll face still lies ahead in your future

We need to prepare ourselves and those around us to embrace these challenges and overcome them

Only then, will we be ready to change the world

#IYD #2019 #IYD2019

Received this painting of me as a gift from Professor Hemant Bhavsar (a professional artist from Canada)

He’s made professional paintings of a long list of celebrities, and found me, and made & shopped across a live & classic 36” x 24” painting of me.
This is the second painting that has been made of me by a professional artist this year. 

Looking forward to what my collection looks like two decades from now!

At the Nigerian Embassy in Addis Ababa visiting our honorable Ambassador.

A very gentleman steering the affairs of our country in one of the busiest countries to be an Ambassador (Ethiopia). 

#Nigeria #Ethiopia #AddisAbaba #diplomacy

As the first stop on @weareafricave’s tour of US Colleges, I met with members of the African students association at University of Notre Dame. ☘️ The most-asked question I’ve gotten in the past two weeks is “how can we help build Africa, from where we are?

The Africa Tech Summit in Shanghai was everything more than I expected. Really always inspired when people who come together in Africa’s name.

I’m happy to have been asked to join a team of elite speakers for the inaugural summit in China. 
My team and I won the “Distinguished Research Award” for our study on Income inequality in China.

Visited my friend Ambassador Stephen Seedarsingh: Ambassador of Trinidad and Tobago to China at his home recently. 

He’s a great example of a former private sector giant, taking a huge leap to the public sector, building bridges between his country and the rest of the world.
