Reno Omokri motivational quotes


1. Stop thinking that your certificate entitles you to a job, or wealth, or even to success. Your degree is just a piece of paper. It entitles you to NOTHING! If a degree could make you rich, those who gave it to you would have been billionaires!

2. Never bite the hand that fed you. It is an absolute statement. It doesn’t matter if they are wrong and you are right. If you want your future to be bright, make sure you never bite the hand that fed you when you couldn’t feed yourself. No exception!

3. If you don’t know your purpose, let me simplify it for you. What is that thing which requires effort, but which you will still do even if you were not paid. That is your passion. Your purpose is to use your passion to make the world a better place

4. Success brings confidence and confidence brings success. They go hand in hand. Don’t wait to be successful before you are confident. Be confident now and your confidence will attract success, which itself will attract more confidence. It’s a cycle

5. Investing in a business comes with risks. Because the risk is monetized, it looks big. But wasting money on frivolity comes with a sure risk. The risk of future poverty. I prefer to invest and have a partial risk than spend it and have a sure risk

6. If you don’t know how to start a business, let me simplify it. Get 2 sheets of paper. On A, write the skills you have. On B, write those who need those very skills, but don’t have them. Next, start marketing the skills on paper A to those on paper B

7. You get rich by connecting with people, not by collecting from them. When you meet successful people, borrow wisdom from them, not money. Study their money habits. Act like them, and soon, you will be one of them. Get rich by imitating the rich!

8.I’ve seen money change people. They dance well for God when they are broke. They make money and stop dancing that way. You ask why. They say such dance no longer befits their status. If money makes you stop loving God like before, you won’t get it!

9. One sad thing about workers is that they go to work to earn a salary, rather than to learn a business. Your salary should be start-up capital. Your real pay is learning how the business you work for is run so you can start your own and employ others

  1. The reason you are poor is because you are focused on what you want. Focus, instead, on what others want. Then think of the skills you have to meet their wants. Then start meeting it. They will pay you. And just like that, you will have a business!

11.You will never see ‘Get money’ in Scripture. You only see ‘Get wisdom’ (Proverbs 4:7). God knows that you dont get money. You attract money. And how do you attract money? By getting wisdom. Money likes wisdom. Chase wisdom and money will chase you!

12.If you admire a billionaire, but you haven’t read his biography, you are a foolish admirer. You want to reap, but you don’t want to learn how to sow. Read biographies of the men and women you admire. It‘s the easiest way to replicate their success

13.It is more important to learn how to make money work for you, than to learn how to work for money. That‘s why you should learn to invest. Dont spend your life going out to look for money. Instead, learn how to send money out to look for more money!

14.Because you are 60, you want to give up your dreams? Who told you dreams have expiry dates? Go and read about Colonel Sanders who founded @KFC. He was a failure all his life, until he started KFC and became a multimillionaire at 75. You have time!

15.Stop designing websites, doing landscaping, accounting or laundry, for friends and family for free. It is not kindness. It is foolishness. They are making money from their own skills. You too should make money from yours. Turn it into a business!

16.Habit is a gradual thing that leads you to a final thing. The little habits you have are responsible for the big successes or failures you have. Watch your habits. Because they will produce your life’s experiences. Where are your habits taking you?

17.Until you sell, you can’t excel. Think of the greatest people in every field. In music you had @MichaelJackson selling his music. In writing, you had Shakespeare selling literature. In politics, you had JFK selling ideas. What you sell, excels you!

  1. Don’t try to start a perfect business. Focus on creating a profitable business. And the only way you can do this is by solving other people’s problems. See other people’s problems, not as obstacles, but as opportunities. Solutions bring finances!
  2. Gain people’s confidence and you will eventually gain their money. That is how conmen con people off their money. By gaining their confidence. But don’t be a conman. Be a correct man. Gain people’s confidence by providing a good service or product

20.If you want to be rich, stop doing what you are good at for free, even if it is your hobby. If you know how to make people laugh, charge for it. If you know how to sing, charge. That‘s why God gave you the talent. Not as a hobby. But as a businesslove what you do

21.How can you expect your income to rise when your knowledge has not risen? It is like expecting a promotion to the next class when you dont have increased knowledge. Hard work keeps you at the same level. Smart work promotes you to the next level!

79.Stop begging for money and start begging for wisdom. Don’t go to successful people’s TL and say ‘please give me anything to feed’. Better to, say ‘I admire your success. Can you give me tips on how you made it? Learn to fish. Stop begging for fish!

80.If you have not had money dealings with anyone, never say you know them. Even if you have had money dealings and they gained money, you still don’t know them. Unless you have had money dealings with them AND THEY LOST MONEY, you don’t know a person!

96.The phrase ‘money cant buy happiness’ was invented by happy rich people to prevent the poor from threatening their wealth! Money is very, very, very, conducive to happiness! Are you not happy when you get bank alerts? Was it poverty that caused it?

97.When a rich man dies and leaves his wealth some people say ‘vanity upon vanity, as if wealth is a sin. It is not only wealth that is vanity. Poverty is also vanity. They are both vain because none of them can save you. But I prefer a wealth vanity.

98.Even if you can’t help the poor, still try to make money legally so there will be one less poor person to help. That way, you indirectly help the poor, by reducing the competition for charity by taking yourself out of the poverty equation forever.

Why was I God created?

What skills do I have?

What plans do I have to achieve my purpose?

How do I know that I have achieved my purpose?

If you can answer these questions, nothing, except death, can prevent you from achieving outstanding success!

101. When you realize you are on Earth for purpose and not for popularity, you stop caring what the herd thinks and start following your principles, not trends. Don’t join the herd to condemn what you heard, otherwise the herd may one day come for your head.

102.It’s foolish to be sad because you are different from others. How can you be sad over an advantage? Different people make a difference. Odd people stand out, and because they stand out, they become outstanding. Embrace and celebrate your difference.

103.It is easier to get rich by expanding your income than by reducing your wants. Accessing many streams makes oceans full. You either invest your youth in self-development or invest your old age in self regret. The choice and consequences are yours.

104. People confuse academics for intelligence. Academics are good at counting degree certificates. Intelligent people are good at counting money. No matter how many degrees you have, how intelligent are you if you still work for a man without a degree?

105. God did not create man to love work. He created us to enjoy our passions. Make your passion a business and you won’t work. You‘ll thrive. Know yourself. Know what you love. Know where what you love meets the world’s needs. Then make it your business.

106.You are the one person whose opinion matters to your kids more than anybodys. Even when you are angry, don’t verbalize negative opinions on your kids. They will believe it and it will be their destiny. Even when angry, say ‘you this useful child’

107. Treat money like a tree. When you need firewood, you cut the branches, because branches grow back. If you cut the root, the tree won’t grow back. Your money is a tree. Don’t cut it at the root. Wait for it to have branches, then cut those branches.

108.Yes, we are the Human Race. But that does not mean we should race with each other. You don’t have to marry before your sister or friend or hit it big before your brother or neighbor. We are also human. Meaning we should be humane, not just human!

109. According to Scripture, when people die, they have no awareness of what you do for them. So, don’t borrow to give people befitting burials. Spend money on the living, not the dead. Dead parents can’t bless you for the money you spend on their burial.

110.Many people you think are angry, are not really angry. They are poor. Bring easily angered is often a symptom of poverty. That is why ghettoes tend to be violent. Don’t waste your time attacking the anger. Until you attack the cause, it won’t go.

111.It is a lie that not everyone can do business. Everyone can. But not everyone does.

Do it because you need to defeat poverty in your own life, so you can help others defeat it in theirs. A job may help you defeat poverty in you, but not in others.


You control your:



Actions, and


You cant control all these and still blame others for your failure. Man up. Take responsibility! Your life has turned out how you played it out. Make better choices to have a better future.

113.Your location won’t change who you are. A butterfly who goes to America wont become a bird, nor a lizard a crocodile. Dont focus on changing location. Rather, concentrate on changing your mindset. Only then will your location impact your vocation.

114. Don’t call your brother wicked for refusing to look after your many kids, which you had because of your ‘God will provide’ mentality. You see cold weather as time to chase women. In hot weather, you still relax with women. This is Africa’s dilemma!

115.Even birds won’t lay eggs until they first build a nest. You say you are a human being, with intellect, yet, you pop out children when you dont have a job, a business or a source of income. That is why you are poor. You reproduce before you produce.

116.The biggest fish always swim in deep waters. Wake up early, to think deeply. The ideas that will bring wealth will come to you when you are engaged in deep thought. It is called ideating. Read deeply. Think deeply. And you will be deeply wealthy!

117. Loving yourself is not narcissism. You cant you love your neighbour if you don’t love yourself. And your neighbour will find it difficult to love you if you dont love yourself. How you see yourself is the blueprint for how others will see you
