trying to get it right… (or, looking through the window of perfectionism)

‘I must get it right the first time…’ This is the one thought that most successful people don’t seem to suffer from. And in my humble opinion, this is one of the reasons why the richer get richer and the average stay where they. I remember when I was in advertising, we would sit there creating … Continue reading trying to get it right… (or, looking through the window of perfectionism)

practice in private. get rewarded in public. #success

I can't remember who said this but if you think about this line, you'd start doing things differently. People are rewarded in public what they practice for years in private. Great words, right? Well, in the book As a Man Thinketh, the author James Allen writes: “The thoughtless, the ignorant, and indolent, seeing only the apparent effects … Continue reading practice in private. get rewarded in public. #success

self-improvement: or else you are going down…

It's good news for everyone. It's not about the colour of your skin, or your accent, or the humble beginning you've had, or any of that shit that people use as excuses. It's never about any of that. It's not whether you went to college, or that your parents taught you more on saving money … Continue reading self-improvement: or else you are going down…

so many experts…

Everywhere I look I see experts. People who call themselves business coaches, consultants, career coaches, advisers, marketing gurus, pr whistlers and the like. But the question is, who is real, who is fake, who will be here 5 years from now, and who'd have packed their bags and disappeared with the wind? Well, if you are … Continue reading so many experts…

whatever it takes. or go home.

I was chatting with my work colleague the other day and he said to me, I'm tired of being poor. So I asked him... 'What are you going to do about it?' 'Well', he said, 'I'm going to find ways to progress here at work... ways that I will be able to make more money.' Now, … Continue reading whatever it takes. or go home.

2 great thoughts on personal growth by Jim Rohn

I think you'd agree with me that from time to time it's good to remind ourselves the great lines that have the power to put us back to focus. Focus on what really matters. Focus on the path to the direction of our dreams. Focus because if we dare to forget... If we get distracted and … Continue reading 2 great thoughts on personal growth by Jim Rohn

#SuccessLovesSpeed

Speed saves lives. I think, if we had a speed limit of about 100mph, we could have had fewer accidents in average. Now don't ask me about the statistics because I don't know how they look like. But here is my point. Without speed, then focus, drive, attention, energy and alertness of purpose - as we move … Continue reading #SuccessLovesSpeed
