Author Interview – Vol 115
CREATIVITY, BREAK THROUGHS AND CALLINGS.
The Founder of the elite Prime Africans Network, Kelechi igwe made his first offering in 2018 by panning out words in his debut – Breaking Out.
Breaking out urges us to look deep into ourselves. To find the web that beclouds our sanity and break free from it.
To attain creativity, we must first, break out but understanding what we need to break out from is what this interview highlights.
You may not be at your peak yet or you may not be a catalyst in your field that’s the more reason why ‘breaking out’ would help set you free from the curses on your creativity.
Tell us about yourself and your book – Breaking out.
Where the wisdom and principles of the ancients are being harnessed for maximum productivity, that’s where I’m mostly found.
I am *Kelechi Igwe*; an advocate of Early discovery, Strategic Leadership and Global Relevance.
“Breaking Out” is a guide to understanding the dynamics of the youthful phase of life and producing notable results by mastering the use of the resources available at this stage.
At lot of testimonials have been recorded from readers.
When was it published and what were the challenges in getting it published.
Breaking Out was published on 9th September, 2018 in a gathering of bright young African minds.
Then Nigerian market does not yet recognize the value of indigenous work, so the challenge was convincing standard publishing companies to publish my work. Most authors in Nigeria today are self publishers.
Sometimes, it’s easier to live a lie than face blunt reality, how do you advice we come out of this illusion?
A battle fought alone is very risky, I’d recommend you associate with people who are genuinely advancing and before you know it, you’ll see clearly how to face reality and gain momentum to break out.
You made reference to the words of, Ajah Excel that ‘when you are younger you look like your parents but when you get older you look like your decisions’, do you mind expantiating on it?
This is a connotation. People refer to you as the child of your parents when you are young but as you get older you’re quickly connected to your failures, achievements or dominant situation.
In one of your seminars, you highlighted that Mr. Samuel Adeleye repeatedly noted that if you recognize who you are, you have solved the biggest mystery in life. How does this aid the breaking out process?
This is a very sensitive question.
I once posted the following words on my status “My mind is under construction, please be careful what you say to me”.
The reason for this is simple.
We will always act in accordance to what we believe in. And our belief is a result of the information we have been exposed to. i.e what we have heard or seen. Therefore, in discovering yourself, it is needful you be careful where you dig. Feed right otherwise, you (who should be an eagle) might end up hatching into a chicken.
Your talk on ‘What it takes to be it’ seemed to be a defining moment for you so tell us more about it.
We will keep striving until we achieve what we believe to be success. That’s when we will become fulfilled. To many people, success means having more money, becoming influential.
To some even, success just means reaching people’s expectations.
Define what “it” means to you and it will help you stay on the right course.
You believe right timing is an indispensable factor in the same vein, does creativity, breakthroughs or callings also have their timing or should we pursue them actively before they comes to us?
What this theme portrays is that to be able to replicate a successful vision, you must build sufficient capacity through learning. There are many creative individuals whose work never see the light of day. Don’t run off because you think you heard or saw something.
When you’re ready, you won’t doubt yourself.
