We all have dreams, aspirations, ideas, fantasies and goals that we would like to achieve. Unless you are not ambitious, I know that you dream of achieving things in your life. Whatever the dreams that you harbour and whether you will achieve them, entirely depends on you.

You are in charge of transforming your dreams into reality. You are the CEO, the Leader and the Boss of “yourself incorporated.” Everything that we see that is man made was first conceived as a dream. It took someone to work diligently to turn them into reality.

This though did not come without…

“I am the captain of my soul. I am the master of my fate” — William Henley. If you didn’t know now you know that you are solely responsible for your life. The choices and decisions you make are your responsibility.

Stop blaming other people for your under achievements and take responsibility to correct them. Humans have a tendency of playing the blame game. We want to have an excuse for our failures and inadequacies.

Most of the time we want to find someone or something to blame when things are not going right.

But do you realise that most…

There are no secrets to success it is the result of preparation, hard work, and learning from failure “ — Colin Powell.

It is not a secret that the greatest fear we have is often failure. Perhaps it is one of the greatest fears that anyone has ever experienced. Unfortunately, you cannot detach failure from success.

Ask even the most successful people if they have ever failed the answer will be a resounding yes. This just goes to show how important it is to learn from failure.

In my years of being a student of personal development and self-growth…

The capability of conscious choice and decision and intention; is called the will; “the exercise of their volition we construe as revolt” — George Meredith. In other words, we all exercise the will to do things of our own volition. Every one of us has the will to do something.

The power of choosing; the faculty or endowment of the soul by which it is capable of choosing; the faculty or power of the mind by which we decide to do or not to do; the power or faculty of preferring or selecting one of two or more objects; is…

You will agree with me that everyone wants to achieve personal success. We all have one common goal in life. To be successful and live a happy and fulfilling life. Everyone of us wants to learn the ropes of being successful.

We all have a desire to make a difference in the world. But many of us struggle to triumph and live a below average life.

I know that many of us have read on the subject of personal success. Many of us, if not all are students of the success subject. Only a few are good students and are…

The year 2020 will be remembered as a year that came with a lot of change. It changed the order of doing things. We were all either affected and or infected by the virus that has continued to ravage the world, the COVID-19 pandemic.

This change has been forced upon us. We have had to adapt to the new norm of doing things, such as wearing face masks, regular use of hand saniters and taking extra precaution when going out in public. Social gatherings are restricted. …

Success has many rewards. Walking in success feels great, but rewards last if only you look forward to your next challenge. You will agree with me that when you achieve a goal, when you are successful, you are happy and ecstatic in that moment, you feel like you have conquered the world, you feel over the moon. But as soon as the excitement subsides and reality creeps in, you begin to look for the next challenge to conquer. “ Successful people tend to become more successful because they are always thinking about their successes “ — Brian Tracy.

The desire…

Courage is not the absence of fear. Fear is an emotion that is experienced in anticipation of some specific pain or danger. The emotion of fear usually triggers negative thoughts and feelings. We all have experienced fear before and continue to do so every now and again. For some it could be the fear of heights; the fear to tell our story because we are scared of being embarrassed.

The fear of failure to venture into something new. Does this sound like you? Fear comes in many ways. For some the shear thought of living their comfort zone sends chills…
