Giving & Receiving

By Mark Mazadu (Nigeria)

One of the most powerful actions that help you get the stuff you want is giving. The more you give, the more you receive, what you see is what you get, the more you order, the more you receive, what you focus on, you get more of. The Universe is able and willing to give you more than you need at anytime so that you will always have all you need for yourself.

When you give it is like lending to the Universe and the universe will pay you back. When you give, you know you are getting stuff, provided that giving is motivated by joy, gratefulness, happiness and love.

The Energetic value of our thoughts is equal to the consciousness with which it is delivered. In other words your thought brings to manifestation all that you desire in the realization of your dreams.

Giving is one of the most powerful tools you can use in creating your Abundance. The law that governs giving and receiving are both scientific and spiritual. Scientifically for every action there is a reaction, positive/negative, and equal/Unequal. Spiritually we’ve been thought that as we give, it comes back to us, as we sow, we reap, as we plant, we harvest and as we read, we learn. Our understanding of this principle brings to manifestation the Abundance we wish to see or create.

We receive new thoughts that enable us see our dreams, possibilities and allow us see what we seek is available and achievable, for me that has been made easy through the teachings and new thoughts in IIGL that transformed me from a follower to a leader, and a receiver to a giver. The focus of life is not to get but to give, when you give to your SOURCE, freely and joyously, you receive abundantly, freely and joyously.

What is it that makes others receive and see realization of their dreams while others don’t? Thoughts! Thoughts!! Thoughts!!! Therefore thought allows you notice the Abundance in the Universe.

Each time you give, you say to Universe thank you for the blessings in my life and opportunity to share. Giving can be an extremely powerful force in your life and the highest source of returning to the Universe is through the point which gives you nourishment. As you GIVE to the Universe, may you realize the compassion of Unconditional Love, Wisdom, Peace, Encouragement, Abundance and Gratitude. I send you unlimited love and all green lights on your path.

New Students

We are very pleased to welcome five new students during the month of June. They are from Burundi, Cote d’Ivoire, Mali, Nigeria & Uganda.

Diane Kagwiza (Burundi)

I am a Burundian, born in Bujumbura the Capital city in a family of 5 children by which I am the junior. I am unmarried. I like to be active, i.e. I like to work and my dream and goal in life is to build a law firm specialized in business and human rights and later be to able to found a center for vulnerable children. I like trips, to explore the world to know other civilizations and thus to learn what is better out there in order to expand my horizons and those of my entourage. I studied the Law in Burundi and I have my LL. in law. I made my field research in children rights in the world and particularly in rights of the children of Burundi. I took part in the projects of the establishment of the volunteer young people of Burundi, the projects of support of the vulnerable children and the people living with HIV/AIDS. I am Assistant Representative of the NGO LIPADE since 2 years and I directed a basketball team.

Lazare Djile Kaoudjo (Cote d’Ivoire)

I am KOUADJO DJILE Lazare. I was born the 01/31/1975 in the department of Lakota (Ivory Coast). I am the seventh of a family of 8 children including 5 boys and 3 girls. I am Christian. I obtained the baccalaureat “D” in 1998. I was directed in the faculty of Economics and Development (SED) of the University of Bouaké. After my master’s degree in Management, I obtained, in 2007, the Diploma of Professional Higher learning in “Management of the Projects” at the University center of Continuing education (CUFOP), the school of continuing education of the University of Cocody (Ivory Coast). I am currently in search of an employment. I am a manager i.e. the one who organizes, who formulates, who plans, who decides, who orders, etc. For this reason, I need a mentor, a catalyst, something that which can enable me to have a high spirit. I was President of Bouaké University Club (BUC), central sports club of the University of Bouaké (2004- 2006). That enabled me to manage the sporting inheritance of the University, to regulate conflicts between the students; between the students and the faculties, and to negotiate the academic umbrella within the framework of national and international competitions. I am a master karate. I started to teach karate with the students of Bouaké from 1999 to September 2002. Since 2003, I train the students of Bouaké and Abidjan on the level of sport of combat. I played football, I made athletics (100m and popular cross-country races), but karate is a sport which I liked more. It is almost a passion for me. It reinforces my health and allows me to be in control in front of many situations. For that, I need a moral reinforcement, a psychological reinforcement to stand in front of all the challenges any leader could meet. Moreover, I hope in the future to carry on a liberal activity, an autonomous activity, an activity for which I will have people under my direction. It is to say that I will have the life of persons in charge of families, the people on whom one counts. If the activity falls, the life of many families will rock towards the negation. Therefore, I count on IIGL to perform high.

Maye Niare Assanatou (Mali)

I am Maye Niaré and I work in the field of telecommunications. I love traveling allover the world and I dream to live in a house which will be opposite the river or the sea and in the countryside. I do not like big cities for their pollution and noise. My center of interest it is the decoration of interior with leaning on the aspects of culture. I like the movies of adventures, nature, debates, and exchanges of ideas. I have a Master degree in Marketing and communication and I am completing a Master in management with CESAG of Dakar. I come from a family of 7 children including 3 boys and 4 girls. I am a mother of a little boy whom I adore more than all in the life. He is my sunray and my very whole life. I dream to speak fluent English and to be a more effective leader. I would like to be able to own my own company in the years to come and I would have to manage all kind of people. Thus I would like to anticipate on the events and to pre-empt the future. I am member of Rotary club Djoliba since 2005 and founding member of the first Toastmasters club in Mali.

Adeyemo Olawale Samuel (Nigeria)

My is Adeyemo Olawale Samuel. I am a male and a christian.

I had a diploma in Architecture and i am self employed. I have authored a book titled youth and love, published 2007 by sonnets media nigeria.

I have also serve as mobilization and organising secretary for the young people’s wing of my church.

Julius Magala (Uganda)

My name is Julius Magala. I live in Kampala, Uganda. Born and raised from a small town called Jinja in the Eastern part of Uganda, I have two sisters and three brothers and I am the second born. I am a finalist at Makerere University Business School where I am pursuing a bachelor of business administration with a major in Accounting.Two years from now I plan to pursue a Master of Science in Renewable Energy with a focus on Renewable Energy for poverty eradication or sustainable development.

At the university I got involved with an international students run organisation called AIESEC, where I led a team that implemented a program called ASK (answers solutions and knowledge around HIV/AIDs issues), which aimed at creating peer educators in high schools in and around kampala. Currently I am working as a solar consultant with Free Energy Foundation, where I train and help improve to run efficiently solar businesses in the rural areas so that they get more customers hence reducing on the current power challenge in Uganda.

I love Nature, computers, travelling and adventure, volunteering, watching movies and listening to music and reading books.My favourite books are the secret, 21 irrefutable laws of leadership and the monk who sold his Ferari. In my travel adventures I have been to all the East African countries (Kenya, Tanzania and Rwanda). Travelling and visiting other countries has helped me appreciate the impact of culture on the people’s ways of

living and the mindset and check my level of adaptability to new environments.

What Our Students Are Saying

Linquist Asiebela (Kenya)

“Everything that’s coming into your life you are attracting into your life. And it’s attracted to you by virtue of the images you are holding in your mind. It’s what you’re thinking whatever is going on in your mind you are attracting to you.” For some time I was fond of blaming my circumstances and all the negative things wondering to myself; what a fate? I’ve been challenged to learn that things don’t just happen to us by chance. At first I found it hard to concede this truth but after much scrutinizing, with the examples given in the book, The Secret, I’ve come to the conclusion this is for real. If something came to you, you drew it, with prolonged thoughts. The law of attraction is precise. There are times that I’ve intensively thought of certain people, events and places, just to come across them after some few weeks. You create your life. Whatever you sow, you reap! Your thoughts are seeds and the harvest you reap will depend on the seeds you plant. I’m certain, if you can convince your mind beyond any shadow of doubt that you own a particular thing, you’ll definitely get it. The problem is that, we doubt. If you see it in your mind, you are going to hold it in your hand. Therefore, instead of getting angry, I’ve made up my mind to first ask myself; did I really see it in my mind? Was I convinced?

What Our Students Are Reading

The Long Walk To Freedom

By Nelson Mandela

The famously taciturn South African president reveals much of himself in Long Walk to Freedom. A good deal of this autobiography was written secretly while Mandela was imprisoned for 27 years on Robben Island by South Africa’s apartheid regime. Among the book’s interesting revelations is Mandela’s ambivalence toward his lifetime of devotion to public works. It cost him two marriages and kept him distant from a family life he might otherwise have cherished. Long Walk to Freedom also discloses a strong and generous spirit that refused to be broken under the most trying circumstances–a spirit in which just about everybody can find something to admire.

What Our Donors Are Saying

Kirsten Bolwig (UK)

Transformational Therapist/spiritual activist working for global change

IIGL is an inspiring answer to the driving need for change in our world. It is not from “the developed world” but from amongst those in emerging countries that we will find the fresh vision, the courage and aspiration for real change that humanity and our beloved Earth so sorely needs. The world needs aware, creative and independent thinkers. This is the time for new paradigms not the re-jigging and modification of the old and IIGL provides the opportunity and the means by which this is possible. It is a wise leader who provides nourishment, information and tools and then invites his students to create their own designs for a different future. In IIGL we are doing just that.
