    When climbing a series of hills, to move from one hill to the next you have to climb down the current hill, pass through the connecting valley and climb up the next hill. Unless you are super(wo)man, bat(wo)man or one of those superheroes, the only way to the next plateau is by going down, then through the valley and up again until you get to the peak of the next hill. And so it is with life.... [Read More]

    Today marks the beginning of a new month. It is a reminder that 4 months are gone; 8 more to go. It is also a reminder that what’s gone is gone and cannot be recovered, however, you have the gift of today, and you can get a lot done if you put your mind to it. Forget all you didn’t do before. Look forward to all you can still do with this new opportunity of a new month you now have. A new month... [Read More]

      If you were to ask most people, they will tell you that in order to start a business you must have money. Well, that may be true but not entirely so. Look at it this way, what if you had the money but you didn’t know what business to start, would you still start a business? You can’t start something you don’t know now, would you? I guess not.    The most important aspect of a business is the... [Read More]

    Ever sat on your leg for a long time, or folded your hands for a long time without stretching them? What happens when you eventually stretch? Pins and needles, right? That is because our bodies were not created to stay immobile for long.  That’s why you’ll fall asleep in one position, but when you wake up you find yourself sleeping in a different position, not necessarily because you were having...

    .......unless of course you don’t have any ideas.  In the words of George Bernard Shaw:“If you have an apple and I have an apple and we exchange these apples then you and I will still each have one apple. But if you have an idea and I have an idea and we exchange these ideas, then each of us will have two ideas.” That is why you should spend time thinking every day. Besides thinking, it is...

    I’d never thought about this until I thought about it. Sorry if this sounds like a #YogiBerra quote but it is not.  Not sure why or what I was doing when I suddenly thought of looking up the meaning of darkness from the dictionary. According to the dictionary, darkness is the partial or total absence of light. In other words, where there is no light, there is darkness. No wonder people use the... [Read More]

    “It isn’t what you have, or who you are, or where you are, or what you are doing that makes you happy or unhappy. It is what you think about.” ~ Dale Carnegie And that right there is why I say happiness is a choice.  It is a choice because once you know what makes you unhappy, you'll not want to stick around and wait for it to bring you unhappiness, will you? A normal person will not. He or she... [Read More]

    Some peple are so negative that every time they say something it affects all those around them negatively. Those are the kind of people to be avoided; they are toxic. Their negativity is so strong that it causes more crippled minds instead of creating ripples of positivity all around them.  To such people I say this; if you can’t say anything positive then please don’t say it at all. Use your... [Read More]

    For a chef to make a buffet meal and have it ready for his guests to indulge, a lot goes into the preparation of the food. First, he has to know who his guests are and whether they are vegetarian or non-veggie. This information helps him prepare the menu items. Once he has the menu items, the next step is to find the ingredients needed, the tools (such as pots and pans) he will need to prepare...

    Sometimes we miss out on opportunities, or fail in certain aspects of life and business, not because we don’t know, but because we don’t know we don’t know. It is safe to ask questions when in doubt, or when you don’t know something. Not asking and messing up because you didn’t ask makes one dumber than a dumb person.

    Forget about the bike; just looking at it makes me feel like going for my riding gear and riding this beauty for the next several hours. What a beauty! Anyway, I digress. Everything you’ll ever want in life begins with you. The day I realized that if I want something achieved I have to achieve it myself, that is the day I realized I have no one to blame for where I am except for ME. Similarly,... [Read More]

    Two little boys were playing on some ice during winter. As they were playing one fell through a section that had thin cold ice. Instantly, the little fellow who was left on top of the ice did not panic but instead attempted to save his buddy. Unfortunately, the little boy was (literally) too little and too short to reach his buddy, though he could see him through the ice, slipping further and...

    Decisions.  Very tricky “things” those are, yet there is no escaping them. Every single day we have to make decisions that affect our lives in one way or another. If for instance you decided to stay home today without permission from your employer instead of going to work, then be prepared to face the repercussions of that decision tomorrow. If you decided to invest in the stock market today... [Read More]

    Has it ever occurred to you that most people see you as they see themselves, that the things they say about you are the things they themselves are?  That’s why some smart people came up with the theory that if you want to catch a thief, send another thief to catch him. Think about that for a minute. What people think about should be none of your business. Even if you find out what their opinion... [Read More]

    People who know who they are don’t waste their time complaining. They have tuned their minds to be positive no matter what. They always look for something to be grateful for. To them, the glass is never half empty; it is always half full. An attitude of gratitude will always create room for more things to be grateful for. This is a proven fact. But what surprises me most is not the fact that... [Read More]

    Whereas it is good to know your limits, it is equally important to say NO to those limits. The greatest breeder of limits is FEAR.  Because of fear many people have settled for less than they should. Because of fear, many people have opted to camp on the roadside instead of climbing to the top of the mountain where their cabins are found. Fear cripples. Fear limits you. The only way to say NO to... [Read More]

    Think about that for a minute….Done? Good. Similarly it would be very awkward to find a car “sailing” on water, unless of course it is one of those modified ones that are accustomed to being on both water and land - the ones we see on movies and sci-fi channels.  Same case applies to a ship on the road. I mean, how would that even work? It wouldn’t even move an inch on the road without grazing... [Read More]

    When I first saw this image, it gave me the creeps. I thought the dog had a peculiar skin disease only to realize that it was actually not a disease but just an illusion caused by the effects of  sunlight streaming through a patterned lace curtain, whose pattern flatteringly landed on the dog, causing this eerie looking image. Fear has the same exact effect on humans too. It is an illusion. An... [Read More]

    Why do we celebrate Easter? ~ Today we are ALIVE because He died and Rose Again. ~ Today our loneliness is gone because He clothed us with His undeserved LOVE for He IS LOVE. ~ Today we are celebrating not His death, but His VICTORIOUS RESURRECTION. ~ Today we can stand strong on His shoulders because on His shoulders we stand tall and ELEVATED. ~ Today we are BLESSED because he took all our...

    Invest a few moments in thinking. It will pay good interest. ~Author Unknown Unfortunately not many people want to take time to think. They want other people to do the thinking for them. No wonder Thomas A. Edison said, “Five percent of the people think; ten percent of the people think they think;  and the other eighty-five percent would rather die than think.” There is no challenge in this...

    Albert Einstein said, “Life is like riding a bicycle. To keep your balance you must keep moving.” But let’s face the fact; sometimes life sucks. When you wake up in the morning and realize only one of your hormones left the bed while all the rest are still sleeping; life sucks Worse still,  you wake up feeling all sore and tired but you still have to go to a job you hate; life sucks. Then you... [Read More]

    I don’t know about you but I really hate it when people are all over my business, seeming to know what is best for my life, especially when they have no contribution towards it.  So today I’ll just let the wise men and women of our time speak on my behalf through these ten quotes...… "A hard thing about business is minding your own.” ~ Unknown "A man is likely to mind his own business when it is...

    You must have heard the saying, “you are what you eat”. That’s true not just for your body but also for your mind. If you constantly feed your body with junk, sooner or later you will see the results. The reverse is also true; if you feed your body with healthy food, exercise daily and maintain a healthy lifestyle all round, then the results will also be evident. The same case applies to your...

    Forget it is Monday, and believe it or not, today is a gift with your name on it. But guess what? You have the choice to unwrap your gift, or just keep it at a corner somewhere and keep complaining about how blue the Monday is, or how wet the land is or how bad things have become…… Or you can choose to unwrap it, see the beauty in it despite all the other negative things surrounding it, and...

    Is it possible to ignore a volcanic eruption? I don’t think so. If anything, do so at your own peril. Do you know that besides spewing fire from the top, in some instances a volcano can cause the earths intestines to growl ferociously, causing a major earthquake?  When there are signs of a volcano, everyone around the vicinity stays on guard because they know the force behind could be disastrous...

    Success is and will never be easy.  Anyone who has ever succeeded in doing something (the right way) will tell you this.  I was looking at this picture of these guys scrambling for the ball and I realized they epitomize exactly what success is…. You have to work really hard to get what you want. There will be a lot of sweating (and probably swearing) along the way. Many times you will find... [Read More]

    It doesn’t matter how hungry you are or  how long ago its been since you last ate your favorite meal; the only way to eat food is one bite at a time.  Even if you were invited to the “Bestest” buffet in town, you can load your plate all you want but the only way to demolish that plate is by taking one bite at a time. Same case applies to your dream or vision. The only way to achieve or realize... [Read More]

    “Tough times don't define you, they refine you.” ― Carlos A. Rodriguez I couldn’t agree with Carlos more. Imagine the process a carrot has to go through in order to produce carrot juice. It goes through some serious cutting and pressing, but eventually, the end result is this healthy, yummy, thick, fresh juice that cleanses your skin and detoxifies your body. Every one of us has a carrot moment;... [Read More]

    Watch your thoughts for soon enough you will become what you constantly think about.  That’s why Henry Ford said, "There are two kinds of people: those who think they can, and those who think they can’t. They're both right.” In other words, if you think you can be successful then soon enough you will start seeing the signs of success coming your way. If you think you will never be successful,...
