Enters Dr. Savage…
Me: Welcome to interview with Aditya!
“It’s my pleasure”
Me: “That’s your highness”
“Okay, let’s dive into it.”
“HERE WE GO!”
- God’s Delight,
Western Dietary pattern
“And we know that all things work together for good for those that love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose”
“As a man/woman thinks in his/her heart so is he/she. What you think of most times is what you will see.”[AB: As the man thinketh in his heart so is he – is one of the most profound books I have ever read. Whatever you believe about yourself, you will start manifesting it. Always remember, “Wherever focus goes, energy flows.”]
“To be outstanding in life and fulfill God’s purpose for my creation.”
“Jesus Christ.” He is my example of success. Despite challenges, tribulation, and trials experienced in life, he never lose focus on his purpose. He came out victoriously and he’s never forgotten here on earth till date and is presently sitting at the right-hand side of God for being a worthy son of God.

The Bible and some Bible characters like Abraham, David, Joshua, Ruth, and Deborah.
“God Loves You”
How does your morning Ritual look like? What do the first 60 minutes of your day look like?
“Thanksgiving to God for being alive/awake.“
“Determination is the major key to success. Challenges will come, obstacles will show up, discouragers will be met on your way to success, keep your gaze on the goal.”
“No Pain = No Gain!”
What topic would you speak about if you were asked to give a TED talk on something outside of your main area of expertise?
How to understand body cues.
What obsessions do you explore on the evenings or weekends?
Rest, then working on my area of passion.
Can you share some experiences of your life that you think have played a significant role in how you’re today?
God positions good people on the way for His children who are passionate about His course. At every point of a difficult situation in my life or where I met a crossroad, His light shines and His favor is made manifest. This keeps me focused on God no matter any experience of life I may be experiencing.
Never put your trust on any man. Put your trust on your Maker; God Almighty, the arm of flesh will fail you. You may have an open mind/ clear heart, the person you are relating with may not have the same kind of heart towards you.
I actually wanted to be a banker, I love the way they dress. However, I realized that my call is not only about dressing but to encourage and be a light to my generation. I thereafter found teaching, writing and speaking engagements very pleasurable for me to fulfill the mandate of God upon my life. My mindset changed as I realized that dressing well is an act which could be leaned. I learned this from my father and mother.
“Know of who you are”
- God Almighty/life
- Being educated.
- Blessed with praying and caring parents
- Having positive mindset and great people
- Blessed with wonderful children
I put a stop a relationship because of his desire to travel abroad to make a living thereby instructing me to leave my family behind to join him. I found it crazy then to leave my family behind especially my mum but I understand better now that I can always come around to see my family. I love my family; father, mother and my siblings and my immediate family now. I never wished to lose my relationship with them and the family knot.
Thanksgiving to God for living a fulfilled life
I personally think,
Not having a goal in life to achieve thus becoming the people pleaser.
Writing a new book
It is to unleash what God is dropping in my heart to benefit mankind. I wouldn’t know if any other person is given the same vision.
The title would be something like… ‘The Memoir’
The film will show different areas of my life where I experienced pain but later turned out to bring great gain/blessing.
(Or do you have a favorite failure of yours?)
Most successful people in life have experienced failure at one stage or the other in their lives, not necessarily academic failure but life challenges; I am not an exception. We learned to move on and there have never been any regret doing so.
What have you changed your mind about in the last few years? Why?
Having many friends is not good for me. I have changed my mind from having too many friends. I love to flock with people of like minds, having goals and working on their goals to achieve greatness.
Changing people’s mindset positively so as to be the best of their kind through speaking engagements, seminar presentations, writing and community development programmes.
Holy Bible (It is my life companion) It answers to every life questions when referenced or meditated on. It speaks the mind of God, His relationship with people of different characters including me.
Getting educated (spiritually and academically, formally and informally). Getting my children educated and writing my inspired ideas in book form and articles so as to be of benefit to mankind.
“Determination is the key to achieve greatness.”
Live your life, be yourself, God has deposited great potentials in you. Unleash the potentials and live to fulfill your life purpose.
