One Thing I Learnt While Hosting the Danish Ambassador to Nigeria on My Channel

In October 2016, I met the Danish ambassador to Nigeria-His Excellency, Ambassador Torben Gettermann at an event- “She forum Africa”, where I was speaking on the power of authentic stories as I shared my live streaming journey- one of the many platforms I was privileged to speak on, in 2016.

A year earlier, I was going to pay to attend that same event but with the success story of my live streaming journey, I was invited to be a part of a Panel session on Personal Development.

Before I spoke, the ambassador left so he missed my session, but after the event he was very active on twitter as he tweeted about the event. I reached out to him about his speech which was really phenomenal. I re-tweeted some of his tweets and a conversation started.

My Big Lesson… Sometimes we want to do some things and we think it is impossible. I am one to go ahead and do it, the worse that can happen is get a no or it fails and that will not make me feel bad. It’s just going to let me know, maybe the timing is not right or it wasn’t meant to be.

I introduced myself to the Ambassador formally and asked him if he would be interested in being a guest on my show?. The Ambassador responded positively and he became a special guest on the “Sparkle with Naomi” show. What an honor for me.

I just thought to try and he responded positively.

No matter what you need to do, you have to take that first move.

Take action!

Don’t just sit back and look at the things you could have, should have done that you haven’t done yet. The only difference is, you haven’t taken action, and you haven’t taken that first step. Perhaps you are too busy analyzing everything and suffering from analysis paralysis and trying to figure out everything on your own, because you want everything to be perfect before you start.

Dare to take action, dare to ask.

What’s the worst that can happen? So you get a no.

What’s the worst that can happen when you start your broadcast…you feel the butterflies or you think it’s a disaster. I thought my first scope was a disaster but that didn’t stop me and here I am, building a Global Brand from the comfort of my home and teaching others from around the World how they can do the same. I dared to take action.

You have seeds of greatness in you, stop waiting for the right time to start. Start now!

GO! Sparkle Your World.

    I love this…spoke directly to me….analysis paralysis…perfectionist tendencies…what if I fail mentality…all these have held me back each time I have a great idea that could potentially change my life and the world.

    Hope to make adjustments henceforth…and ‘Just Do It”.

    Thank you Naomi
