The debut edition of “Do It Afraid” Conference themed ‘Are You a Moth or a Butterfly, Which Would You Rather Be‘ left all who attended geared up for 2016. The conference which took place on Sunday, 6th December 2015 was organised by Omilola Oshikoya International based on the mantra “Do It Afraid”, a movement, aimed at inspiring this generation to fulfil their dreams, visions and purposes by overcoming fear.

Omilola Do It Afraid Conference 2015 IMG_1765The Butterfly and the Moth are very similar in terms of their anatomy and life cycle (also known as metamorphosis) however there are a few differences. A Moth lives at night, is attracted to artificial light and is dull coloured while a Butterfly, lives during the day, gets its energy for flight from the sun and is vividly coloured. This basically means there are two paths to life, the way of the Moth which is the boring, unfulfilled life or the way of the Butterfly which is the fulfilled, purposeful life. Most people want to live the fulfilled life however they are unable to because of fear which comes in different forms. What they fail to realise is that fear is part of the process. It is important to face your fears and live a life of purpose.​

The beautiful butterfly, represents the fulfilled or purpose driven life. The butterfly like the moth also goes through a process however the outcome is what is different. The purposeful life is not without its challenges however; it is the preferred option. In order to live the purposeful life, you would have to face your fears and do it afraid. “It is important that we do that thing that we are afraid of as the thing that you are afraid of is most likely the thing that would set you free” – Omilola Oshikoya

The conference ended with 40 participants at various stages receiving free coaching on how to get rid of the fear.

    Wow, “It is important that we do that thing that we are afraid of as the thing that you are afraid of is most likely the thing that would set you free” wise words. They all look glamorous! God bless them all.

    hahaha ok, I know I am being petty but this is why I hate inspirational quotes or books; the tacky comparisons

    The moth lives its life, to its fullest abilities and design e.g. to fly at night- doesn’t make it boring, or unfulfilled, or unworthy compared to the butterfly.

    And a lot of moths are brightly colored too.

    So be a freaking moth and live a moth-filled life, if you have been created a moth, and don’t compare yourself to the freaking butterfly- we can’t all be butterflies

    *gets off soapbox and going to munch on some cookies hehehe
