Who is Ayo?

Ayokunu Oduniyi is the founder of 4:12 Men. Its vision is to see men gather and grow together as they navigate what it means to be a Godly man in today's society.

Ayo is a leader who transposes many avenues, with his eye in the camera viewfinder and his hands on helping his fellow man.

In this episode, we will discuss the importance of learning to prioritise the harder things and how Ayokunu Oduniyi applies this principle in his work with 4:12 Men.

Totally 'on brand', 4:12 MEN derives its name from the bible:

1 Timothy 4:12 – “Let no one despise your youth, but be an example to the believers in word, in conduct, in love, in spirit, in faith, in purity.”

Do you prioritise the harder things?

Ayokunu Oduniyi is a leader who understands the importance of learning to prioritise the harder things as he mentions in the episode.

In his work with 4:12 Men, he focuses on doing the harder things first.

This principle can be applied to many areas of life, including our personal lives, our work lives, and even our spiritual lives.

In our personal lives, we often find ourselves putting off the things that we should be doing first.

We procrastinate on our health, our relationships, and even our own happiness.

We tell ourselves that we'll start tomorrow, or next week, or next month.

But the truth is, if we don't start today, we may never start at all.

And, in our spiritual lives, we often find ourselves putting off the things that God is asking us to do.

We tell ourselves that we're not ready, or that we don't have enough faith.

But if we don't take action on what God is asking us to do, we will never experience the fullness of His plan for our lives.

In this episode, Ayo speaks to this.
