10 over 10

Global Paradigm Shifters
There are numerous challenges facing today’s young minds. Here are four of the most focal:
Media Over-dose
Traditional media like Tv & Radio and their sponsors continue to celebrate nudity & stupidity while social media’s instant information dissemination/communication are mostly employed by young minds for short term unproductive and long term destructive ends like  gossiping, chatting, tweeting, pornography, movies/songs/games consumption. If 6hrs per day out of 18 active hours is spent frivolously on social media, at the end of the year, one-third of the year ends up wasted. Media overdose is a tumor that requires immediate surgery, and the real men have decided to head to the theatre.
Purpose Under-Dose
Purpose is not a course that is taught in school. It is rarely passed along at home. Yet, it is everything. Our nation continues to churn out students that are ill-equipped for their own lives, Students who have no idea just how powerful they are in head and heart, students who may never fulfill destinies. Purpose is what gives meaning and bearing to anyone, anywhere and a life without meaning & bearing is a burden. A man yet to find purpose is dead while alive
Leadership Under-Dose
If good leadership brings development, it’s safe to conclude that bad leadership will only bring doom. John C. Maxwell opines that ‘everything rises and falls on leadership’. And today, our students and the younger generation are at risk, at risk of learning the wrong leadership lessons from the overabundance of bad leaders in our dear nation and the scarcity of good ones. To steer the ship of millions of lives and our dear nation from impending doom, young leaders are not wanted: they are needed.
Sex & Drugs Overdose
Youth brings with it energy and with energy comes expenses. Unfortunately, youthful energy is being expended on sex, drugs & dangerous associations. Millions of students experiment with the bodies of the opposite sex, trying things exclusively meant for the married and using drugs capable of temporary pleasure/relief but permanent damage/regret. Ambassadors are needed: to halt this dangerous trend and help others live sexually pure, spiritually clean, emotionally positive, physically and psychologically healthy lives.
*      Powerful lessons in Purpose & leadership for the emergence of rounded, grounded young leaders
Purpose | Branding
Leadership | Social responsibility, Sex & Drugs
We are a group of concerned young leaders who share a deep passion for transformation. We believe that the broken walls of leadership decadence and purposelessness in our dear nation can be fixed and rebuilt. We believe that every single student can lead a purposeful life. We believe that Nigeria is in dire need of young, astounding minds to propel her ship into the future. We believe that every single student can make a difference that makes a difference with the people that are different. We are the Global Paradigm Shifters, and we are committed to building excellent global leaders who are 10/10.
10/10 will move through every single geo-political zone in Nigeria but for the rest of 2013 and early 2014, our focus will be on the south-west geo-political zone.

Today was phenomenal as the 10/10 train kicked off at the State of Osun where we inspired destinies at Urban Day Grammar School, Mayfair and dissected brand leadership to over 500 students from various secondary schools at the Music & Career Talk show for Secondary schools which held at Henry-Alex Duduyemi Memorial College, Ile-Ife.
The tour continues as follows:
Henry-Alex Duduyemi:        November 19
Moremi High School:         November 21
N.B: Pictures, videos and testimonials will come your way shortly.
We can’t wait to change destinies tremendously and to raise Nigeria’s next vibrant and visionary young leaders by God’s grace. 10/10 is coming to your school next! Are u READY?
Yours truly!
