A butterfly is safe in its cocoon but it can never reach its full potential while staying there. Getting out of the cocoon is tedious, difficult and challenging but it is in the process of coming out the butterfly grows its wings. Change can be scary, change can be painful, but nothing is more painful than staying in a place when the season or opportunities is over. Its challenging launching out to the unknown, it sometimes requires a stretch and sacrifice, because naturally, we all have the tendency to assume the negative of what we don’t know.... Read More
Niklas Zennstrom once said “Surround yourself with smart, dedicated people – to build something isn’t a one-man show. It’s more important to have smart people who really believe in what you are doing than really experienced people who may not share your dream.” A man association will determine his destination. Anyone who is not adding to you will definitely be subtracting from you either emotionally, intellectually, materially or mentally.... Read More
Having lost his right leg to cancer, Terry Fox embarked on a cross-Canada run called the Marathon of Hope in 1980 to raise money for cancer research.

"Until you jump, your parachute won't open." Jonathan Winters once said “If your ship doesn’t come in, swim out to meet it.” How often do opportunities slip off people’s hand by taking too much of time planning and analyzing. To be successful, you have to do what successful people do, and successful people are highly action-oriented. The world doesn’t pay you for what you know; it pays you for what you do. Read more
rcy Ross once said “You’ve got to ask. Asking, in my opinion, is the world’s most powerful and neglected secret to success and happiness.” People are afraid to ask because they don’t want to look needy, foolish or stupid. They are afraid of experiencing rejection. They are afraid of hearing the word No. The sad thing is that they’ve actually rejected themselves in advance. They are saying no to themselves before anyone else even has a chance to. Never assume... Read More
He who says he can and he who says he can’t are both are actually right. Your subconscious mind does not argue with you. It accepts what your conscious mind decrees. If you say, “I can’t afford it,” your subconscious mind works to make it true. Select a better thought. Decree, “I’ll buy it. I accept it in my mind.” We all grew up with great dreams, great ambitions, fantastic goals, remember when you were asked as a little kid ‘What do you want to become?’ I hope you remembered how eloquent and audacious you are in giving the response. If am to ask you the question again I will put it this way, where are your childhood dreams?
Nelson Mandela said “Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is...Read More
Ken Blanchard once said, “Feedback is the breakfast of champions,” as we continue on our journey to success. It is important we look at the role of getting feedback. There are two kinds of feedback you might encounter – negative and positive. We tend to prefer the positive – that is, results, money, praise, a raise, a promotion, inner peace and intimacy. It feels better. It tells us that we are on course, that we are doing the right thing.
We tend not to like negative feedback – lack of results, little or no money, criticism, poor evaluations, unhappiness, or inner conflict... Read More
