Sometimes, you are not sure whether your ideas are feasible, laudable or great. You don't know whether your values fit.....then reading about others experiences also makes you realize your own. That's the effect IIGL studies has had on me

Since joined IIGL, I have learnt that through our human endowments of self-awareness, imagination, conscience and independent will, we become conscious of areas of weakness, areas for improvement, areas of talent that could be developed, areas that need to be changed or eliminated from our lives. Then, as we recognize and use our imagination and independent will to act on that awareness- making promises, setting goals, being true to them- we build the strength of character, the being, that makes possible every other positive thing in our lives.
Given that, I have given due attention for my first creation in my mind first and foremost. As everything is connected through invisible threads called energy, my though and action is not limited to myself. Rather it reach to every person who lives every where in the world. Therefore, I have been using my invisible thought to visualize a better, safer, cleaner, more responsible, more loving and more peaceful world.

‘’It was when I see IIGL advert on another website that I became enthusiastic & join this institute in 2010. My primary intention is that I will take different short and long term leadership trainings that will help me develop both my leadership knowledge and garner International certificates. But the reality is absolutely different. IIGL for me is incomparable to both what I was thinking and what any other might think of before testing it. It’s all about changing one self, and become a transformed being and serving the community. The lessons I took from IIGL have the real power to transforms the words I use, the feelings I have and the way I have to view and understand the world. It helps me to stop and ask myself, who am I, why I am created and where I am marching to...’’

IIGL Active Student, Addis Ababa
I became a student of this prestigious Institute in 2005, Sept. to be précised, the first two introductory books, Jonathan Livingston and As a man thinketh really opened my eyes, so I said to myself that I have been missing all the while, but I was glad when I found my quest for leadership in the International Institute for Global Leadership ( IIGL). It was a divine direction.<br />
The International Institute for Global Leadership has made me to believe in myself. The books are very interesting to read, there are things in life I never thought could be possible for me but with IIGL training and studies they are possible with the right books, like Positive Mental Attitude, Unlimited Power, power of intention, keys to success and the rest of them. I feel the program was established for me personally. Wow! I became the first graduate and I must confess it was not easy but with Divine intervention and the three D's, Dedication, Determination and Drive, I got there, I was focused, I avoided procrastination and I never let anything to distract me. <br />
Today, as the IIGL Coordinator in Nigeria. Being an IIGL graduate is my greatest joy and happiness. I want to thank the Founder Michael Lightweaver and all the contributors for their support in making this program a success. Without you all there will be no IIGL. IIGL I say a big thank you for the wonderful opportunity you have given to me. PEACE and LOVE! <br />

… I'm thoroughly enjoying, not just the reading, but the 'practicals' as well. I've adopted the C.A.N.C.E.L. technique' from psycho-cybernetics, and am quite conscious there are mental cobwebs, and that I need always to replace my negative mental attitude with (NMA) with a positive mental attitude (PMA). These concepts are powerful, useful and certainly fruitful...That is why I believe that IIGL is certainly one of the best things that has happened to me. I'm going through transformation...it's amazing!

Since I joined the International Institute for Global Leadership (IIGL), my life has changed drastically. Finding IIGL is a blessing of a lifetime for me as a person as I have referred some of my friends to take the IIGL course. As a studious person, I have been looking for an on-line programme like the one offered in IIGL, but I have not been able to come across any until I find IIGL. What I discovered from the one I have seen is that it is either they offer fee that is unaffordable and one has to pay to credit card, or that the programmes are not organized like the one offered by IIGL.
By becoming a student of IIGL, I have learned a lot of things which I explained below:
(i) A Bookworm: If there is one thing I can take from IIGL is that it makes me to read. It has often been said: “leaders are readers”. This saying is imbibed in the IIGL Institute. Those who cannot read voraciously cannot be a leader. Reading broadens our horizon, and makes us to discover hidden knowledge.
(ii) A Transformed Person: Before talking the IIGL course, I usually find it difficult to get along with people because I used to be a temperamental person (although I go to church and read motivational books even attend seminars). It was when I started reading books like: “The law of attraction”, “Non-violent communication”, “The Unlimited Power” that my life takes a drastic turn. These books are life-changing.
(iii) A Learning Community: Becoming a student of IIGL has made me to belong to a community of learners. It was Tolstoy that says: “The illiterates of the future are not only those who cannot read or write, but those who cannot learn, unlearn and relearn”.
(iv) Real Leadership Values:and more...

It is really true that man is the author of his destiny just as an unexamined life is not worth living. He who fails to think will have his thinking done by another for him. The Bible also says that people perish for lack of knowledge. The quotes above are part of the things I will be talking about. I have always had the belief, which I
acquired from my culture, that people live a life of chance, tossed around like paper or feather in the wind, a life of poverty, suffering, depression, envy, anger, jealousy suppression and oppression because of external forces. We believe that the causes of our problems are out there and we crave for sympathy from the world believing that we are victims of circumstances.
We believe that there is an external force responsible for our suffering without realizing that those forces has power because we gave them such powers. We fail to realise that any time we wake up to our responsibilities and decide to take our destinies into our hands, all external forces will succumb and even work for our success. We can harness every force of nature to our advantage. The Creator has not placed us under any creature but above all creatures. The bible taught that God gave man dominion over all the earth.
I must confess that my life has been that of wishing and dreaming without a definite purpose and action.
Through reading of the books in levels one and two I was able to discover how to first be the change I want to see in the world. I can declare that I am now a transformed person in thought, belief, actions and inactions. I really know that I am no longer the same again. I am now in charge of my life.

To begin with, my marriage with IIGL has been that of fulfillment, joy, self discovering, building of self esteem and the list can go on and on with no end. Before now all I deed was dream and dream and underestimate myself in the face of so many challenges but now with my studies at IIGL I have seen that the sky which is said to be limit is my springboard. As is said in one of the books I read in level one, poverty is just a state of mind and no one is designed to be poor just that we do not aspire beyond our nose. I have come to realize that some families stay in poverty because of ignorance and lack of courage. Anthony Robbins quotes “life is a gift, and it offers us the privilege, opportunity and responsibility to give something back by becoming more” I have come to realize that I am more than what I see of myself. I have the responsibility to give back to life what it has given me and that can only achieved by becoming something bigger than what I am right now.
The changes I live right now are beyond comparison to what I was before.

My journey with IIGL began in 2006. Was very excited when my friend Sammy Jacobs Abbey told me about an experience he's had with the institute and shared it with me. My life has been enriched, I am living a fulfilled life and watch each day living my dreams and by extension been an inspiration to others. I have lead and lead great initiatives and my inspirational leadership skills lives on daily. Isn't it interesting to know that today, I am also co-president of IIGL?<br />
Thank you Michael Lightweaver for envisioning this great idea! I love IIGL

I have always remained a daring, focused young man who always sees possibilities regardless of all the odds. My interest in leadership and entrepreneurship sparked up a passion within me which I have assiduously pursued with the Junior Chamber International(JCI), a worldwide organization of young leaders and entrepreneurs. I currently serve as the JCI UN Affairs Commissioner for Africa and the Middle East. My involvement with the International Institute of Global Leadership set my thought process through a mind revolution where I am persistently revived in mindset and maintain a different perception about the world I live in. I currently serve as Co-President of the Institute. This mind transformation has made me more philosophical and has affected the lives of many that encounter me. I like to network with positive minds diversified in thoughts and critical in thinking, dine with success masters like Nelson Mandela and Anthony Robbins through their books and speeches and like to create a circle of great influence around me. I am an advocate of originality and a lover of the Universe and especially the African continent. I try to create the right consciousness and Africa unification through my passion for poetry. Finding a place to express my African Ideals is what I do with the African Unbound Movement where we contribute towards the establishment of peace,prosperity and freedom in Africa by engendering a paradigm shift in the way we think about and practice development. I am championing this initiative as chapter coordinator for the movement in my home country, Ghana. I believe that each individual has a seed of greatness in us, we just must find it and nurture this seed to maximize its full potential., Accra
