Coach Nile Introduces Book That ‘Cultivates Vision’: Nile Kris Jan Banga, also known as Coach Nile and creator of Nile on Weekends and Watch Out – Iloilo, highlights a book that ‘cultivates vision’ – Yesterday, Today, Tomorrow – Don’t Miss Your Time! Nile is the founder and lead strategist of Identity Branding and Marketing and a founding core member of the Iloilo Bloggers Society. From being a one-man team to having his squad today, he has been working with several brands in and outside Iloilo for the last five years.
Coach Nile started writing his first book during quarantine last May 2020.
“I have been speaking to pockets events in Iloilo City organized by friends either for branding talks or inspirational sessions. One common question I get is how did I start my career as a brand consultant and a life coach,” he explained.
“It all started back in 2015 with a vision. It is a lengthy discussion in one sitting discussion. I thought of writing my whole journey into a book,” he added, “the struggles, pains, and victories experienced in those years.” He launched his book last year in October at Festive Walk Mall.
“Writing, publishing, and launching this book opened me to a new dimension of influence,” Nile shared. He believes that ‘influence through published books conveys a sense of permanence’. “After publishing and launching the book Yesterday, Today, Tomorrow, people began to see me in a more serious and valuable light,” he continued.
Yesterday, Today, Tomorrow is about Coach Nile’s five-year journey from employee to becoming his own company as a service provider to brands and businesses. The book discusses “dreaming about your future and envisioning your life.” It is also filled with practical steps to jumpstart a journey with the right tools at hand.
“The book will move you, encourage you, and challenge you forward to your destiny,“ – Rev. Ruth Cube Keijdener, Founder of Beautiful Powerful Women
“Nowadays, it is a gift to encounter someone with the passion and commitment to make a difference in the life of others. Nile fully imparted that passion and commitment in his first book to teach us the value of stepping out of our comfort zone and believing God for greater feats.” – Gerthrode Charlotte Tan-Mabilog, Vice President and COO of Alphacrest Academy and a 13-year GMA News anchorwoman and Ratsada Executive Producer
Coach Nile shares a summary of the book, Yesterday, Today, Tomorrow – Don’t Miss Your Time!
Cultivate the intention to think. Intentionality always precedes the activity. To see your vision unfolds, be intentional in thinking about it, planning for it, and seizing it as it grows. Ideas always start from a simple spark of inspiration that God injects as you think. Sift through the rubbles. Invest in feeding your mind with good and valuable thoughts. Remember, garbage in means garbage out.
Prepare the skills. Ideas stay intangible without the right skill. Vision stays spiritual until one converts it into action. Learn to develop the right skill in your journey. If a person envisions life being a great singer someday, one must develop the skill in singing the right notes and hearing the right tune.
Have an eye for opportunities. I have said over and over again that the disparity in living the vision of those who have grown their skills over the years is the eye for the right opportunities. You may have developed the most profound skill in your industry. Without seeing the opportunities where to land will keep you training hard without achieving much. Some may have all the opportunities but lack the skills to qualify in that career or industry.
