A lot is happening. Oil prices are going down. Developed economies are planning to increase their interest rates. The exchange rate is going up daily. So many people have lost their jobs in some of the best companies in oil and gas, telecoms and financial services. The forecast is that people need to brace themselves up for 2016. In times like this you understand that no matter how prudent you are with your finances or how you manage your finances, there are factors that are beyond your control. You can lose the value of your Savings or real estate in one moment. For children of God, you should not be fearful but instead you should be EXCITED. I love this quote that "no matter the economy of the jungle, a lion will not eat grass". The worlds system is different from Gods system. Remember money is man made. The earth is still full of riches. There is still an abundance of gold, diamonds, oil, land etc. there is still an abundance of problems to solve or diseases to cure. Imagine if God gave you the ability to discover the cure for cancer. You will be thrust into billionaire status in a minute. The Bible says "Remember the Lord for He is the one who GIVES the POWER to get wealth. The wealth is His, And He can give you the power to get it. Egypt prospered even when there was a famine in the world. This is exciting times for those who know the true source of wealth.

The debut edition of “Do It Afraid” conference themed Are You a Moth or a Butterfly, Which Would You Rather Be left all who attended geared up for 2016. The conference which was held last Sunday, 6th December 2015 was organised by Omilola Oshikoya International based on the mantra “Do It Afraid”, a movement, aimed at inspiring this generation to fulfil their dreams, visions and purposes by overcoming fear.
A moth or a butterfly, which would you rather be?
The Butterfly and the Moth are very similar in terms of their anatomy and life cycle (also known as metamorphosis) however there are a few differences. A Moth lives at night, is attracted to artificial light and is dull coloured while a Butterfly, lives during the day, gets its energy for flight from the sun and is vividly coloured. This basically means there are two paths to life, the way of the Moth which is the boring, unfulfilled life or the way of the Butterfly which is the fulfilled, purposeful life. Most people want to live the fulfilled life however they are unable to because of fear which comes in different forms. What they fail to realise is that fear is part of the process. It is important to face your fears and live a life of purpose.
The major highlight at the conference was the interactive panel discussion anchored by Bolatito Bez Idakula (Radio Anchor and Founder of My Lighthouse) where speakers shared personal experiences on how they overcame fear and pursued their dreams against all odds. The panelists were Cobhams Asuquo, Award winning Music Producer, Singer & Writer; Dr. Jumoke Oduwole, Lecturer Department of Jurisprudence & International Law at University of Lagos; Jimi Tewe, Career Coach, Author & Speaker; Dr. Ola Orekunrin, CEO of Flying Doctors of Nigeria and Premier Life Coach & Psychologist, The Catalyst, Lanre Olusola held a practical session on “The Psychology of Fear and How to Overcome It.” According to Lanre Olusola, “The way you see the problem is actually the problem, with fear perception is stronger than reality”.
Africa’s Premier Wealth Coach and Founder of “Do It Afraid”, Omilola Oshikoya spoke on The Beautiful Butterfly. The beautiful butterfly, represents the fulfilled or purpose driven life. The butterfly like the moth also goes through a process however the outcome is what is different. The purposeful life is not without its challenges however; it is the preferred option. In order to live the purposeful life, you would have to face your fears and do it afraid. “It is important that we do that thing that we are afraid of as the thing that you are afraid of is most likely the thing that would set you free” – Omilola Oshikoya
The conference ended with 40 people struggling with various forms of fear receiving free coaching from Lanre Olusola on how to get rid of fear.
