And you see, when we mount this platitudes is not as if we truly expect that things are gonna change is that we have accepted abnormal. He's a classic kiss off Lend helplessness In the late sixties and early seventies, every such a mutton of slimmer all right was conducting some some experiments at the investors built in Virginia this three months, one classical conditioning. What he did was that he got some dogs and was applying electrical charges on them on controllable electrical charges. Now, over time, the dogs stopped fighting. Buck, you look then applied the same on controllable electrical charges to dogs that didn't have that experience on. All of them were fighting back. So he was thinking he didn't transferred experiments on human beings. He didn't apply a little, which I just want my music right. So he used loud, loud noises and he realized from that experiment that when creatures are human, beings or animals find themselves in an uncontrollable when they can no longer control on outcome, this stuff train that is a region off land helplessness. Now back to our situation. We have found ourselves in this form off lend helplessness on because you can no longer control our outcomes. But that alone, if that was just a case of loving bad enough. But we've now seen that any time we find anything that's remotely normal, we become paranoid and apprehensive. Haman of us gets worried when we have more than 48 hours off. Possibly have just two days off power on interrupted in Nigeria, you begin to look at your lifeboat suspiciously. Now the tragedy in this logic is that we will have a contraceptive, that if the power holding company realizes that in there Aargh They have given us more than our fair power are fair. Part supply bill sits off the power and in the power who who never have electricity again It is well is the story of learned helplessness, assented abnormalities. It is a tragedy off Nigeria today, *** has the highest number off out of school Children in the world. In the whole world world 10.5 milion out of school Children aside December 2018 one in every five out of school Children in the world is an idea. 10.5 million Children. I can feel the 30,000 capacity Godzilla Bob your stadium. That news they don't 340 times over. Does the number off out of school Children in Nige entity yet it is well, how many of us stood with France when wanted one people, in a sense, were killed in this sentence terrorist attack. I know that a number of us recalled with terror when over 51 people were killed in the Christ Art New Zealand. Most shootings. Yeah, we all recall did horror. We stood me France. We stood with salon but back home in our backyard in Nigeria between October 1920 18 on March 16 2019 about 350 people were killed by a purported Hedman on bandits in just one states. Is his status is for one states injected six states off the tradition garden estates. According to deny just secretly trucker. Between September 2018 are September 2019 3000 and 27 people Nigerians were killed by Boko Haram alone in about 100 and 99 incidents. Nigeria it's submitted. Maternal mortality rates is about 800 debts for every 100,000 life bets, um, off their 46 most developed countries in the world, the hotel. But this was in 2015. So in 2015 17 to 15 off the 46 months most developed countries in the world, the total maternal debts was 1700. When it comes to issues that gives you about so Montana debts for every 100,000 bits compared to Nigeria's, it's on dread debts for every 100,000 life with If you put up Ricky down, it means that every single day about 159 women die during childbirth or due to pregnancy related complications in Nigeria. I want to give us an analogy that we'll take with us 100 and 60 people, maybe a commercial jets to be able to continue by 160 people. What if what? It means that what we're doing in this country is that every day we pack 100 and 60 pregnancy men intake commercial jets and crash it into the ocean. Every single day we catch one today crash one tomorrow crash one next tomorrow. So we complete 365 days in a year and we start all over again. You had to be saved as well. We are now the property capital of the world. I realized a couple off because I mentioned that at 94 points for seven million people living below the poverty line, we have overtaken India, a country with seven times our population as a poverty capital of the world. But does it an interesting part up off this poverty capital 10 with Nigeria get festival every minutes, every minute In Nigeria, every minutes 4.5 people slide into abject poverty in Nigeria every single minutes. So if l a. D c ado about 47% off us living in abject poverty. Trust me that by December we will have exceeded 50% of our population living in abject poverty. Now the interesting thing about poverty Nigeria is that we actually don't resolve ourselves to fits like that and just go with it is well, that's not Dr Phil Nigel were split into two comes days. They're almost blow. Come on, their days the ah, no more free money for little scamp. Now, so far the Abbas bloke come. Their desire to excel may make them itself but in positive and negative ways. I mean, this is excellent issue Immigrates positive is immigrate legally to Europe. Negative is that you decided to go the Sahara roots, huh? You braved the military in and see So for this this people we asked ourselves Why do they do this? But we think that's the terror off. What they're past has done to them has given us a distorted view of the future. So today people will still rob also soft things just to escape poverty. We have so normalized poverty we see every day we have accepted it that he has become part of us. The problem with that's is that this mask off in published people who perceived a few successful ones as those who have taken their rightful place in society. So their prize that a successful ones will have to be is up every day. Danda independence will be single Doubts as a symbol of the Lotus class to be kidnapped for an song Tortured Bouchard. I'm killed. So it is important that we understand how we got here, how we can't get to the point where we normalize this level off abnormality for me A heart, a road to Damascus moments right? And I would like to share with you three different route to Damascus moments that made me realize that's for me to clean my body. I need to understand where the rain began to beat me in 2011 late, 2011 hours I because appointed a managing director and see you off a bank in Zambia on coming from the high octane charged Ni John banking industry. When I got in Lusaka, I felt that my colleagues were laid back. I felt that they were busy. I felt that they were not aggressive enough. You're talking about 11 to realize that he was me that had the problem. They were actually looking at me as if I was a madman, you know, by 1600 hours, which for them is four. Pm Everybody is thinking of going home right by 18 hundreds. I'm still walking. Yeah, I don't really wanna walk in and you can imagine Wayne in society, um, like backing innocent idea where some people were walking up upon to 2400 which is that midnight by 60 100. Your stuff will tell you I want to Knockoff Knockoff is that they want to close. If you keep them, you'll get a summons from the regulator or the minister of label now. So for me, this was This is a small African country, and I'm wondering how the minister of Labor is so involved in what you do with your stuff. But I was coming from the position of my normalized abnormality. The second experience was when I moved to Wander, the deputy managing director of About I was. It was in the run up to a quarterly audits, and I was having a conversation with the Audi partner, and I was trying to explain their point to him, a practice which was very normal for me back in Nigeria. It was only when his face dropped in bewilderment on horror. That's all my educational rushed back, and I realize that distant that is almost standard operating procedure that we have in Nigeria can potentially be being interpreted as a fraud. The Ted Suspicion Ted Roots Damascus moment was when my wife was that knows we stage vocal rectal cancer, proud to then any time I was always busy. Anytime they call me, I mean, maybe I'm in office having a lot of meetings. Let me call you back. Let me call you back. For the first time in my life, I realized that there are some things more important than that meeting Waiter, My family. Let me call you back. Let me call you back. I realized that I had to spend a bit more time creating legacies than person Pictionary needs now. So, yeah, all of you must be wondering where is already is headed. Touch, Stop. The average Nigerian on the road today on acts the person, the problem in our society. You realize that that individual believes that the problem is caused by every other person than himself. The injury is never part of the problem. No, in in business ethics days, a temp voids. It's called ethical blindness. You know, when somebody is describing a car accident and tells you you know, I was driving on my own. Oh, I was just driving and I came out of nowhere and hit me. They did not materialize out often. Ena the car was that it wasn't your blank spots. You Justin said So we checked the problem with these things that take time to build. We just normalize them over time is that after a while you no longer realize that they're there. And then one day just hits you bum and it becomes a crisis. So over time we've had practices. We have behavioral attitudes that we have simply normalized. We think it's okay. And then one day we just wake up and it becomes a crisis. So how do we change these things? What am I proposing? Having cereal or six off excellence? I mean, I believe all of us know what on horses. So in the desert, that's a raid days, this small area where you have life, water, et cetera. So regardless of what we say is happening around you and I know it's difficult in whatever space you find yourself in, make it on Weiss's of excellence. What is in there? What sub group? What is in your family? What is, in your instance, meeting in a school or university or what has even in this forum, all those practices that you have leant over time? You understand these international best practice that have we go, insists that those with the minimum standards in the place he operates do not compromise under standards. And I can tell you something. It's not that Is it in to do? When I came back from Rwanda in 2017 one of the first things I told myself was I called the meeting off all my senior people because they're now. I came back to a bank in Nigeria and I was in charge of the South south or the business banking on. So I called on my snow people and I told them from today I want to to be respectful. When you talk to your colleagues, I want you to show empathy. I do no want to hear that you shot on any of your colleagues. I wanted to first treat them as human beings before you even begin to treat them as colleagues. And the only thing I want I want you to want you to do. I promised that this home would relate to you. But I want you to promise me that this is also how you are going to treat your subordinates on that I can control everything that's happening for my level down because I was relativists. No person. But I cannot control the things that happen above me. But what you have to promise me today is that those things that are happening below you most reflects this forces off excellence. And I didn't go. I didn't stop there. I also began to engage my peers on my superiors. Tell them that debate those abnormalities that have normalized think some cases didn't go exactly well because they would think that you have become less ambitious. You know, you have gone to other African countries. You have changed. Maybe there's something but trust me that we time you realize that it's a promesa off, the ideas will prevail. It becomes easier if you're not the only one pushing for the horses off excellence. Because the idea is that we have several horses off excellence that at some point will begin to connect in concentric circles. Let us push creates forces off excellence everywhere we go, because ultimately those forces off excellence will lead to a revolution of excellence.
