Dr. Taiwo Afolabi, the Chairman of Sifax Group, has identified courage, self-belief, determination and solution-oriented mindset as some of the factors necessary in achieving success. 

Afolabi said this at an interactive session with the 2022 graduating students of the Babcock University, Ilishan Remo, Ogun State. 

The SIFAX Group Chairman who was represented at the occasion by Mr. Bode Ojeniyi, Group Executive Director (GED), SIFAX Group, admonished the students not to be deterred or intimidated by challenges that life would throw their way.

He said: “Challenges are part of life and it is practically impossible to avoid them. You can’t avoid challenges if your ultimate goal is to succeed, either in career, marriage or business. You need to believe in yourself because you are endowed with all you require to excel. You must also take self-development seriously. Don’t be comfortable with the level of knowledge you have. Keep seeking for more. The more you know, the more likely you are to succeed”.

“Having a solution-oriented mindset is also critical. When you encounter a difficulty or problem, ability to generate solutions, rather than lamentations set people apart. When you are reputed for this kind of thinking, achieving success will be easier, as colleagues, bosses and clients would trust you more and avail you greater responsibilities that would account for your rise.” 

Afolabi further commended the university for organizing the event where the graduating students interacted with successful professionals and captains of industries. 

Other speakers at the event include Mr. Kunle Elebute, Chairman, KPMG Africa, Dr. Babatunde Ipaye, former Consultant, World Bank, Dr.(Mrs) Abimbola Abolarinwa of Lagos State University Teaching Hospital, Prof. Pat Utomi and Mr. Ademola Adebise, Managing Director, Wema Bank, among others.
