2020 has been the best year of your life so far

2020 Simply the Best !

Lock and load

2020 has actually been the best year of your life so far .
Why ?
We all faced challenge after challenge, but we adapted, we have overcome and become stronger . As the saying goes what doesn’t kill you make you stronger .

2020 has forced us to grow exponentially
And reminded us what’s important to us.

Don’t take that for granted.

I also found the the bad times give you the best lessons to grow .

Here’s to end of the year and ending on a high

Carpe Diem

I remember learning this phrase in school “seize the day” , only as you get older you realised how important this is .
It encourages you to focus on the :
-Present
-Appreciate the value of every moment in life
-Avoid postponing things unnecessarily,

As every life eventually comes to an end.
This #covid_19 pandemic has bought this back to our mind ,

“Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, today is a gift of God, which is why we call it the present.”

Happy Friday go and finish the goal you set out this week , call that person you wanted to, it’s not to late !

When you have exhausted all possibilities, remember this: you haven’t

What you relies that the human body loves to be challenged physical and mentally . We under perform because we do not know our true potential, we don’t know our potential so pushing ourself is the only way to see . We have self-imposed limits hinder our progress although we like to pin the blame for our shortcomings on everything else.

Raising the bar is a sure way to find out what we are capable of.

What I learned is that only by pushing ourselves we can achieve , we create our own reality .

“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 .

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.

If your on a path In pursuing success or a better life many things will crop up to stop you pursuing that .

In my experience one of them is the memory and scars of previous failures.⁣

And the thought comes I failed before what will make this time be any different ? Will I be successful ? ⁣

If you have doubt or negetive thoughts then the answer is you will fail , negetive mind never created a positive outcome

Yes you will try but you’ll expect to fail and so you will fail.⁣

All people who start business have failures and success the way you use them determine who you are and what your future will be like , as you learn from previous mistakes, you’ll get closer and closer to the success you desire.⁣

I never see them as mistakes I see them as lessons

Ones past doesn’t equal your future unless you let it.⁣

Monday morning Make things Happen

To make things happen, you have to be an action taker.

What I seen many people think about doing things, while other people talk about doing things and then there are people that actually do things, they take action.

I have been blessed to have worked and been around a lot of people who have been very, very successful in whatever they do whether that be sport, finance , music, acting, business, law, politics .

Personally I see that there one thing in common with successful people , they are action takers, who are very focused on their goals, work extremely hard, but most important of all they are passionate about what they do.

It is this passion about what you do, which I believe is the most important quality you need to have success in life and makes things happen,
It is passion that drives you everyday to do the things you need to do each and everyday to make things happen.

It is passion that keeps one going when things are going wrong all around you, everything seems to be conspiring against you and you feel like giving up.

Your passion will not let you give up, it is what keeps you going it’s what makes you succeed .

To be successful in whatever you are doing in life you need to be passionate about it and I mean really passionate about it, not just like something.
It has to be part of you.

Motivation Monday

There is no time like the present.
To fulfill our role as entrepreneurs/ individuals requires us to “seize the moment” and begin the difficult process of change.
Right now!

We all have Problems and difficulties and they don’t go away or solve themselves by negligence; they tend to only get worst.

Im not encourage anyone to make fast decision that has not been well conceived, thought out or planned.

Collect all the facts and analyze the need for change before lurching into the unknown.

However, when one is convinced and know that change is necessary, it is time to act and begin the process.

Remember that tomorrow is promised to no one. Each day is a gift.
That’s why it’s called the Present 😉

Have a good week
