My Journey into Coaching

❝A little child learns to walk by taking that first step. That first step is always the most important one. Without it, there will not be more steps to take.❞

I had a very thriving career as a banker and was a Branch Manager with Guaranty Trust Bank. In late 2007, a friend of mine told me BGL Securities Limited needed experienced Branch Managers because they were expanding and that’s how I started my journey into investment banking. Life was good and I was earning well. In 2008, I saw a good opportunity to invest in the Capital market which I took with open arms. I took some loans to add to the cash I already had and invested tens of millions but unfortunately for me the market went south shortly after I invested.

I decided not to panic but saw my investment gradually become eroded. Meanwhile the loan I took was at 13% per annum and the bank soon wrote to increase it to 15% and then 17%. After that they stopped writing and the interest rate eventually became 21% per annum plus quarterly management fee of 2%. To add salt to injury, my salary was reduced by 35% because of the harsh realities of the industry. Gradually I got depressed but I didn’t know it was depression then.

I found it easy to motivate my team but whenever I was alone it was as if the walls were closing in on me. One day without any plans or savings for the future, I resigned my job. My final payoff was just about enough to pay off the remaining loans and that’s when life hit me harder.

I had no means of livelihood and many days there would be no food in the house. My weight dropped from 80kg to about 62kg. At a point we didn’t have electricity at home all because I could not afford to pay an
outstanding bill of 25k. Meanwhile my monthly salary before I resigned was in 7 figures. Many times my children would be sent back from school in tears because their school fees hadn’t been paid; I always paid ahead before.
Eventually we were sent packing from the house we were living and it felt as if my life should just end. Out of concern a friend of mine when he heard what I was going through gave me some money to start a new business but unfortunately I still lost the money and it was at this point that I concluded that my life was jinxed and there was no way out.

One day I decided I had had enough and made up my mind to end it all by taking my life. I saw no hope in the future and believed that ending it all would be the best way out for me. I sneaked some poison into the house and waited till it was dark. As soon as I saw my wife sleeping, I gently kissed her on the lips as a way of saying good bye, tiptoed to my son and daughter’s room, but when I saw those innocent children sleeping, I just couldn’t go on and went back to bed. First thing the next morning I had a call from my friend and brother, Lanre Olusola.

He told me he didn’t know what I was planning to do but God said He still had great plans for my life and that I should come for a certification in coaching that he would give me a full scholarship. It was in the cause of the coaching that clarity came and I understood what had happened to me. I had allowed my negative experiences give me a scarcity mind-set and that mind-set had also pushed me into learned helplessness.

Learned helplessness is a state that occurs after a person has experienced a stressful situation repeatedly. They come to believe that they are unable to control or change the situation, so they do not try — even when opportunities for change become available.

After the coaching certification, Lanre gave me another scholarship in Neuro Linguistic Programming and that’s how I started my journey into full restoration and where I am today. Today I am a certified life Coach, a certified Neuro Linguistic Programming Practitioner and a certified Cognitive Behavioural Therapist. I help people to bounce back from their setbacks and I do this for the following reasons:

  • It is a calling
  • I am certified to do it
  • I have been there myself
  • I love helping people

These are the reasons why I am the coach you need if you are looking to bounce back or become a better version of yourself.
