Ugochukwu Obasi, the creative mind behind SOSnation Intelligence Company
My name is Ugochukwu Obasi. I’m the CEO and founder of SOSnation Intelligence Company and creator of SOSnation app. I’m a social media manager, software developer, strategic planner and writer, #LTMMAM. New friends call me SOS, old friends call me Slim. But one person called me Daddy, that’s my mother, Clementina Obasi. Sadly she passed away February 12th, 2018. She may be away from earth physically, but she remains forever in my heart emotionally.
Discovering your Genius
I have the gift of picture-thinking. At a young age, I discovered that I can imagine creative ideas in split seconds. When I hear sounds, see colors and images, I get flashes in my mind, pictorial imaginations flood my thoughts, frame per frame for me to mentally put together and create a big picture. When I sink my mind into this zone, I begin to see my ideas, floating and revolving around me. It feels so exciting and real, I can see them, manipulate, change and improve them to anything I want as long as I can imagine it. I repeat, as long as I can imagine it, I can create it.
Sometimes I have sleepless nights due to how deep I sink my mind in this zone. I gradually generated the habit of talking to myself. It was not my fault, for I was talking to my ideas, my designs, the future. This might seem crazy to you (I know you think I need to see a doctor, but chill, I’m not going insane), but only few will understand its greatness:
I was young and naive, and it is the general nature of human beings to fear what we don’t understand. So this ability scared me. But when I made a research about it and found out that my role model Nikola Tesla had the same gift, I accepted this gift of mental power that comes from God. So I decided to concentrate my mind on this truth, until I became in tune with this great power.
“The gift of mental power comes from God, divine being, and if we concentrate our minds on that truth, we become in tune with this great power.”
– Nikola Tesla, 1856-1943.
Inventor, futurist, legend.
Pursuit of Mastery
When I started the SOSnation idea, I had one word in mind, and it was “Creativity.”
