Thought for the day


Life is so ironic, it takes sadness to know happiness, noise to appreciate silence and absence to value presence. Everything has a lesson for us to learn. So stay open and say #yes to it all and then let go!

New week thought 


Far better it is to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered by failure, than to rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy nor suffer much, because they live in the gray twilight that knows not victory nor defeat.”

 

-Theodore Roosevelt 


Remember when you were at school and the summer holidays came.  You couldn’t wait for them and then in a flash they were over and it was back to school. 


Well,  life has a way of passing you by faster than any vacation. You have to grab it while you still have a chance, and remember, any day that the good lord gives you is a chance. 

What makes you feel alive? Get out there and work towards it! Enough living in the “gray twilight”

Now,  go make your mark. 

Don’t let others sway you


We live on a planet populated by over seven billion human beings: seven billion opinions, seven billion beliefs, seven billion ideas, seven billion mindsets, and seven billion agendas. So no matter how strong-willed, opinionated, or independent you are, it is impossible to live out your life or make progress on your dreams without being affected in some way by the opinions of others.

As you write down your goals, set deadlines for your dreams, and put in the work necessary to make your visions real, there will most definitely be others who don’t think your dreams hold value. There will most certainly be people who not only doubt your ability to be successful, but also question whether your goals are worth chasing in the first place. Some of your closest family and friends may even pull you aside to talk you out of spending any more time going after your dream.

With so many different voices trying to convince you that their way is right and your way is wrong, it is super important for you to dedicate some time out of your day to repeating this affirmation: “The Opinions Of Others Will Not Sway Me. I Will Live My Dreams.”

Repeating this affirmation will help you convince yourself that living your dreams is a must, not an option. It will give you the conviction you need to stay true to your path to greatness—even when everyone around you is telling you to choose a different one.

Be Fearless


If you make only one resolution this year, let it be to live boldly. You control this moment. Rather than cautiously test the water, dive straight into life with freeing abandon. Imagine the person you want to be and the life you want to live, then simply commit to them. Believe in yourself. Embrace your beauty. Discover a new passion. And whatever you do, wherever you go, don’t be afraid to make a splash.

Early bird


The saying goes the early bird catches the worm. This is TRUE, if you have an idea run with it because you can be sure that if you drop the ball your competition will pick it up and run.

But don’t rest on your laurels, your opponents will be watching to see where your weaknesses lie, just waiting to exploit them for their own gain.

So the moral of this post is, you have an idea, nuture it, develop it, expand it. Help turn it into something great, do not be afraid to adapt it, get outside help if needed and keep an eye on the competitor activity out there.

We all have the ability to be great but only if we believe in ourselves.

Stay hungry and don’t be afraid to go that extra proverbial mile.

Now go make your mark
