No one expected what this year threw at usb, 2020 didn’t materialize quite how you expected but you survived and there is still time to achieve some of your goals .

We go into survival mode our animal instinct kicks in , this is to feel safe and supported. People cope in different ways, but if your goals for the new year fell away to other priorities or comfort-seeking activities, Good job you on made it this far. It hasn’t been easy but persistent paid off .

Life still may be crazy or even crazier for some people: Work from home while the kids are virtual learning? Zoom meetings ar the the norm , zoom parties also . Humans are good to adapt and the unusual will be become this new normal it could be an excellent time to start thinking about new goals again. A lot of people are willing to write this year off as a wash, with plans to begin anew in January, but I challenge you to consider if you have the capacity for a goal in the last hundred days of the year. It’s not too late to end the year strong. Are you ready to salvage this year?

How to achieve the goals ?

Choose the goal :

It shouldn’t be extreme, unrealistic, or require massive changes to your life to achieve. There only 30+ days to go .

Details

Be very detailed in what you want to achieve , if you want to achieve weight lost , don’t say I want to loose weight make a goal I want to loose 2kg

Choose a motivational Goal

My goals are business related but make sure your goals is personal and has. A emotional reason behind it It should be something important to you; otherwise, you’ll lose interest long before the year is over

Daily goals

Our human brains and bodies will resist too much change, and we’ll be seeking the comforts of our old routines within a week or two (or less)! This is normal and expected. It’s the old elephant situation “how do you eat a elephant ? A piece at a time !”

Are you ready to end the year strong with me and build a positive start for 2021.

Remember you survived everything 2020 has thrown at you , let’s end the year on a. Strong note !

Why No good can come from FOMO As An Investment Strategy

What is Fear of Mission Out or “FOMO” ? Simply it’s a term used to describe the anxiety ( fear / greed as we described ) we experience when we see that other people are making money and we feel left out .

Social Media

Over the years Social media has become a major catalyst for FOMO. This is with everything in life but When you see updates on Facebook , Twitter Instagram etc it becomes more real and highlighting the incredible returns / profit that is being made by friends . Even if we want to feel happy that they enjoying great success however the other sids of our brain also asks us the “I” feeling knowing that we are not having that profit .

With this kind of situation people are easily diverted into situations where they follow do what so called experts say and loose out .

I use two principles personally and with my clients:

Principle 1 :You work hard for your money, you don’t want to put it in crazy situation. I always say you should do your research, talk to a financial expert and fully understand what you are investing your money in. If you “invest” your money into something you don’t understand it’s be. A big problem and our emotion greed and fear will create havoc with us .

Principle 2 : making money boils down to this in cryptocurrency is determined by the price you buy and the price you sell . What’s your exit strategy for that investment .

So please do your research and/or talk to a financial professional before start investing any questions please send them over

“If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.”


“If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.”

This is an African proverb I’ve read around 8 years ago and I have it in my office .

Why am I bring this up now ?Well we live in a time where there is so much information to absorb, from news , experts , social media etc that one cannot do it !

There comes a time when you have that feeling that the whole world is on your back, you feel the need to know it all and you feel responsible for everything. So what’s happens You become a busy fool you know a lot about unuseful things, this creates problems and frustration .

If you decide that you need to do it all alone it’s going to be overwhelming and frustrated :

What I found is that Listening to what others have to say, as they are going to contribute to your idea. And your idea will then be group’s new idea, and it will grow, contribution by contribution, gaining a strong momentum.

Building a team one can rely on and grow together is key to become successful , as sharing the ideas and the work load will make goals and projects come to a successful conclusion ,

I always say there three sides to every story ,

-your side – their side – the truth !

Building the group around you has a huge positive impact on all aspects

Prioritise what motivates you

I am not the biggest reader but I make a point of reading a business or motivation book monthly. What I found out and picked up a few tips from highly accomplished people like Richard Branson , Warren Buffet , Bill Gates etc , and there is a few things that these Entreprenuer do the same . Here are is one key strategies that a minority of them us .

Prioritise what motivates and give energy to-you:

We all would love to though to be able to take recharging weekend trips, that’s not realistic. However there are plenty of ways to take a break from your weekday routine that don’t involve hopping on a plane, boat or ship 😉 . This could involve everything from having a leisurely Saturday morning breakfast, to sitting reading book , having a drink with friends , there are many ways to relax .

Bill Gates likes to and down on his weekends. “Playing bridge is a pretty old-fashioned thing in a way that I really like,” he said in a Reddit AM session in 2014. “I was watching my daughter ride horses this weekend and that is also a bit old fashioned but fun. I do the dishes every night — other people volunteer, but I like the way I do it.”

Richard Branson takes a slightly more active approach: We read this in The Telegraph that he prefers to spend his Sundays doing more physical things, like paddleboarding, boat racing, and rock jumping.

When you around people for nearly 16+ hours a day , spending time also is something I do really enjoy spending time alone . This can be energising, great time to reflect and meditate on what is important to oneself , looking and add to the goals . A study frond from Harvard’s found that people who spent 15 minutes reflecting at the end of the day had higher levels of performance than their colleagues who did not take the time to reflect on a daily basis.

One key thing I try and do as much as I can , spending time as much as with family , partners, or friends is important, but not necessarily something they have time for Monday through Friday. The weekend is the perfect time to prioritise connecting with your loved one. Ones family is one of the greatest motivation to keep one going during the crazy week and any difficulty that might pop up .

Growth comes from conquering the challenges

Conquering challenges

How true is this statement ? True Growth only comes from :pain, difficulty, transitions, heartbreak, and losses . What one finds is growth doesn’t come from stagnation.. growth comes from change , and the ability to adapt or pre empt them.

Change comes from within… and it comes from you , there no magic pill !

Growth happens when you let it.. when you accept, when you want it and are committed to carry out change .

“It’s impossible.” said pride.

“It’s risky.” said experience.

“It’s pointless.” said reason.

“Give it a try.” whispered the heart.”

Take the chance. Life has so many surprises.. when will I sleep next? will my card get declined if i book that ticket, is this all worth it? Will I get that job? Will my business succeed? Will I ever get married? You don’t always need a plan.. sometimes you just need to breathe, trust, let go, and see what happens.

Be open to change.

Be open to self-growth & it will come.

Fear & Greed – Understanding how emotions are driving markets?

What most people forget when starting to look at investing is how much the emotions of fear and greed will play an important role in the behavior of stock / crypto prices , economic statistics, valuations, earnings, and . Short term these two emotions are just as important as any other factors or even more so .

This post will go through the role fear and greed play in the psychology of the market, and how investors can use it to their advantage . One of the greatest investors in the world uses this psychological techniques :

Warren Buffett on Fear and Greed

What is fear and greed?

For as long as investing has existed, it has been clear that price movements are not always rational, they are more emotion playing a key role in the decision making of investors. Of all the emotions that can affect the prices and other assets, fear and greed are the most unique .

Wen greed dominates, investors are concerned with more returns . Confidence is high, and headlines good news. This is also when the prices of riskier assets outperform conservative assets.

When fear dominates, investors are concerned with preserving capital. Investor confidence is low, and headlines of news are bad . This is when safe haven assets like US treasuries,gold , Bitcoin often outperform other asset classes.

How do emotions affect the stock market?

If you look at the price chart of any crypto / stock market index, you are likely to notice that volatility is greatest at major highs and lows. Very often these highs and lows don’t correspond with major changes in the economy or corporate profits either. Increasing volatility is a sure sign that emotion, particularly fear, is playing a part in the decision-making process of traders. Fear is not only associated with downside – the fear of missing out(FOMO) can drive prices to irrationally high levels.

I’ll write part two tomorrow on how to utilise this and

Awaken the Lion

I remember when I was 16 thinking , Why haven’t you started to chase your goals or pursue the life you wish?⁣
⁣Mixtures answers came to mind , Personally I saw it as majority of the time it’s because we worry about what our friends and family will think of them, I decided life’s to short to think like that .

Recently people getting worried about what the social media will say about them .

Now I simply look at things ,

Does this help achieving the goals ?⁣

Or are you just following the herd and doing what society expects ?


Never forget this⁣

You’re a lion.⁣

And a lion never concerns him or herself with the opinions of sheep,
One should always remind ourself of :

-conviction in your own beliefs
-going with your instincts
-sticking to your opinion

One has to remember MASSIVE goals are important but the steps taken to achieve those goals are within everyone’s reach- you just need to learn how.

Rule 1 never Be Number 2

There’s a time in all lives when you realise what your calling and you make that decision to follow your life purpose, it feels very personal event. Mine was in collage when I was deciding university and decided I’m a business man not a employee .

When you make that decision its impact will have amazing effects on your life and that of those around you. Why I say that ? As when you because follow your gut instinct on the journey towards greatness , you will effect those that work for you , associated the community you work in .

People will see how you change and grow, and develop that spiritual side of yourself , but be careful as those around us might not want us to grow but say they do . Look at people actions not their words ,

I was bought up you live by example; you set personal etiquette , goals ,standards, as this what the outside world see in you and so that others can be inspired to do the same.

This is a continuous journey you build on these standards as you grow it’s a continuous journey .

I am big lover of history and stupid the great leaders , Winston Churchill , Nelson , Carnegie and the common thread is they never stops learning and is always a student in terms of their own development and discovery of truth and pushing themselves and their ability .

A common saying is being a candle flame in someone’s darkness so that they can find their way out again to the light. And you can show by your courage and strength of purpose that there is no need to be afraid; that everything in life is possible if you only live from your heart.

All it takes to be a leader is your determination to continue your journey.

Fear of failure ?

What I noticed is many people are afraid to fail or are embarrassed by their failures or what other will think . As you grow and failures or the success take more chances you certainly don’t dwell on them , I am happy that I’ve had many mistakes in my life.

And the reason Fot that ?

Because i am doing something I’m acting on opportunities and moving forward

What I Lerner a long time ago if you treat every failure or poor result as a learning experience it’s a building block for the future , #grit as such . We should treat success and failure, no matter how big or small, exactly the same: Learn from each one and continue to grow each day. Doing nothing is worst that doing something ,

If you won’t take risk you will works for others that do

Be your own boss may seem to be risky at first bu however If you think being your own boss is risky, then try working for someone else’s dream and let me know how it works.

  1. Taking risks has always been part of man’s evolution.
    Before men were a caveman , they were living outside , someone had to take a risk and go into the cave and set up . Humans had to take trial to progress .

2.Risk will be taken , why not yourself and enjoy the reward ?

In life, you will find risk takers… and the rest. So which one will you be?
Being employed you a follower, you are placing your fate in someone else’s hands. If they succeed, they get the benefits if they loose they create a new venture.

  1. taking risks makes you learn faster
    The best lessons I have had in life is from from failure and moving forward . Successful entrepreneurs have often failed several businesses before they nail it down and are labeled “successful”.

4.Becoming a leader

When you take risks, even if you fail, the people around you, your peers, your employees and even your ennemies will respect you.

Because true entrepreneurs don’t look at failure like a final state. On the contrary: they know it is actually getting one step closer to success.

Simply To be victorious, there must be leaders, and risks must be taken. And sometimes, risks look like failure, when they are actually a step stone to a larger success.
