Gigantic challenges require gigantic solutions…massiveness…excess.
What we couldn’t achieve as a nation on the 1st of Oct 1960 is what this book sets out to do – to set young people free…truly free to live their dreams…truly free to choose and express themselves…expressing themselves maximally.
Excess, as defined by Aruosa Osemwegie, is a consciousness, a willingness to think and execute ideas in a quality and amount that is beyond what is presently acceptable, expected or reasonable.
Nothing Succeeds like Excess sets out to set young people free…truly free to live their dreams…truly free to choose and express themselves…expressing themselves maximally. Young people have become imprisoned or immobilized by lack of capital, lack of jobs, lack of sensitive leadership and the advice that we should wait for our time. But we have waited, and waited and waited…”So what do we do”? Gigantic challenges require gigantic solutions… massiveness…excess. Too many young people, all over the place, instead of appreciating, exploiting and maximizing their youthfulness or singleness are rather on a race to become or to look older. What is the result? The defining period of our lives is put on hold! Or allowed to fly past – UNLIVED. What a tragedy!
“So what should we do”? Embrace Excess. Did you know that in their youth Steve Jobs, Aliko Dangote, David Oyedepo, Ben Murray-Bruce, Sam Adeyemi, Cosmas Maduka, Martin Luther-King Jnr, Bill Gates, Ben Carson, Jay Z . . . all embraced Excess? Nothing Succeeds like Excess lays it all bare. Is there something common to the success of Facebook, Daystar, GTBank, Glo, Harry Porter, and the iPad? Find out inside Nothing Succeeds like Excess and re-launch your destiny today. This is the revolution!

“Indeed nothing succeeds like excess. To succeed in this world that is characterized by competition and dynamism, one must possess excess of whatever that is required. That is, one must be the best among the best. All qualities must be in abundance for one to excel and make meaningful impact on humanity. This book is therefore aimed at encouraging the youth to be extraordinary asthat is what makes the difference. It is motivational as well as inspirational and therefore a must read for every youth who desires to stand out.”
