“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 ,

Rule nunber 1 : F#ck what people think

One thing that I have realised in life is that the me. who wants to lead the opera must have to turn their backs on their audience.

If everyone likes you, then you have a serious problem, I’m glad my first mentor thought me this .

What I found that being a nice person will never ever do you any good in the long run. As people you are spending your energy and your time will take take take and will end up using you as a foot mat — ignoring and insulting you.

Some things I emphasis to myself :

Be yourself.
One fo The worst mistake one can make in your life is change yourself to fit in with another person’s expectations of you and this is in business , friend and family .

Take control

You only drive your own success , take control
People always say “ you only live once but this isn’t true , you die once you live every day ! “

Keep your circle small
Less drama and less negativity has such a huge impact on your life .
Be humble , show respect but be in control .

It’s okay if people hate you, that’s their choice not yours .
Let them hate. But the key thing here is to ensure that you focus on you and not others negative

Challenge the man to become better

A great quote by Sir Sean Connery , a true mans mans , the quote got me thinking “should a man seek to challenge, or should he simply favor of a life of safety and convenience? “

Simply striving for greatness benefits oneself / society, but one doesn’t wants to feel like they’re being used .

When you pursue a challenge, it is true that sometimes you will fail and I have on many occasions , but the real value is simply found in getting up and try and again , failure is only failure if you stop . If it’s in blood, sweat, and tears you expend in the pursuit of greatness, whether you ever reach your goal or not, will be returned to you in the form of greater strength, virtue, and deep satisfaction.

Humanity has learned more from its mistakes that it has from its success . #manliness #motivation #success #keepgoing

Advice on money : Not what you earn it what you keep !

Advice I learned about $$

Let’s say you make $10,000 a month.

That’s only $120k a Year.

Let’s put 30% aside for Taxes.

That leaves you with $84,000.

Now let’s say you’re feeling RICH ‘cause you’re a 6 figure earner now, right?

So you go and buy yourself a Penthouse condo for $5,000 a month.

That’s $60,000 a Year.

Leaving you with $24,000 left.

But wait.

You’re Rich.

So you GOTTA get yourself a nice ass whip.

A Benz or a Lambo Truck. Something lit.

Let’s say that’s $500/month with good Credit plus throw in another $300 a month for insurance.

$800/Month for your whip.

That’s almost $10,000 a Year.

Leaving you with $14,000 remaining.

Throw in Food. Entertainment. Travels & Other bills such as Phone. Internet. Etc etc etc.

That’s gonna leave you with absolutely no savings left at the end of the year whatsoever.

So Moral of the Story?

It doesn’t matter how much Money you make.

KEEPING your money is key.

Having your money work for you is key

Understanding that trading time for money is not the answer

Understanding that consumerism is not the answer

Understanding that losing the immediate gratification mindset will work immensely in your favor

Don’t live life to impress people on Social Media.

Stack your bread and act broke until you’re ACTUALLY Rich.

THEN go treat yourself if you want to.
