I just completed my first ever, podcast interview and it was with speaker and author, Ekene Agabu. I first discovered Ekene via the blog, Nigerian Curiosity where he was interviewed on his opinions regarding polygamy in Nigeria.
He is a professional speaker in Baltimore, where for between 2 – 4,000 he speaks on responsible sexuality. From what I could gather, he is going to be releasing some mainstream pieces of writing in the very near future.
I was quite nervous, as you can tell in the recording, but Ekene was a fantastic guest because he was very short, sweet and to the point. Very intelligent, purpose driven guy.
Some of the things discussed:
1) Who he is and what he does including his background and how he became a speaker.
2) His journey to speaking about sexuality.
3) How would society look if he achieved his objective?
4) What is the purpose of family?
5) Powerful changes in mindset and thinking when it comes to sexuality.
6) Message to boys on the African continent and much more…….
The Main Thing I Took Away from the Interview was….
The importance of knowing your desired outcome. Before engaging in anything, ask yourself,
Why am I doing this? What am I hoping to achieve or get out of it?
And then ask yourself:
Will doing this get me to where I want to be?
It was definitely interesting the way Ekene advised people, before succumbing to the overwhelming urges to simply ask themselves:
Will I desire the consequences of what I am about to do?
In my humble opinion, as a society, we still have not delved deeply enough into understanding, investigating and practicing the art of redirecting sexual energy . It is briefly touched on everywhere from Think and Grow Rich,this interview, to your local church but I think we definitely need to put together How tos and step by step guides for men all over to understand how to harness this powerful force.
