Success Starts With You

Success is liking yourself,

liking what you do,

and liking how you do it- Maya Angelou

Everyone wants to become outstanding in life. It’s interesting how we focus our minds on the products of achievement but not on how to find our paths to the spot. How do you think someone worth multimillion dollars nailed this status; appear on social media platforms, and places where successful people are known?

Part of what makes us human is that we wake up every day and have one motive in mind- TO FEED. Maslow’s hierarchy focuses on the various levels of human need, once the basic and physiological demands are met (food, water, safety, affection, and esteem), a man works hard to climb to the next stage but the fundamental is getting to the level of self-actualization where success is the ultimate.

How do we become successful?

  1. Believe in you (Self Love).
  2. Aim Higher.
  3. Get out of your comfort zone.
  4. Grab a bag with a mission.
  5. Stand out from the crowd.
  6. Focus.

Actualizing this factors doesn’t confirm the certainty of you becoming wealthy overnight; it’s a gradual process where you take a step at a time alongside patience. Whatever definition of success you have in mind depends on what your goals are but in anything you do, remember to stay happy and not sacrifice your soul for success.

Monday Insight

“The most extraordinary people

in the world today don’t have a

career. They have a mission.”
– Vishen Lakhiani
No matter what position we are in life, we’ll always require a deep intuitive understanding of the core of our being, this will elevate us a step higher on the ladder of success. Monday is the day to set goals and aim to achieve them.
My insights are firsthand for me often because I take one stride forward than the earlier week, keeps me focused on what is at hand when I know I need the encouragement that will keep me going the whole week.

Monday Highlights

What makes me happy on Monday even though it’s always a busy one – is that idea of jotting out my list and highlighting the most important goals I need to achieve. Over the weekend I lounged around the house and immerse myself in happy thoughts watched movies, hung out with my hubby and friends. I needed these moments because it was a challenging week. It’s so amazing how one’s spirits get jolted by spending time with loved ones. Therefore, my Monday highlights include:

Stay Focused.

Build Confidence.

Be extraordinary.

Centered meditation.

Adjusting my creative process to an optimal point.

Cool, collected and calm in every situation.

These are just a few of the highlights, they aren’t my goals, however, are the tools for achieving my goals today and the rest of the week. We are living in a world where everything is evolving at a quick hype and we need to be innovative. I admire people that do this and multi-task.

My advice to everyone this week is to be a game changer and remember when you get to the peak of your career or you become who you ought to be, people will expect you to conform and when you don’t, you will be characterised as being proud; Be yourself, it’s better than being anyone’s doormat.

Have a lovely week people.

Monday Moments

Wake up to a bright new day,

A day filled with promises and enthusiasm,

Look higher than high,

Letting go of the moments of unjust;

Monday stares at you while you wrap yourself in the quest,

Tools picked out of the crumble,

Lo Monday here I come to conquer,

Goals set,

Action taken,

Motion in progress,

Achievements realized,

Victory is mine for the taking,

I AM A WINNER!!!

 

 

 

 

 

Almost 50-Live a life Everyday

I was at the shopping mall and decided to indulge myself with lunch after the whole shopping spree. There I sat down at a small round table far away from where I could be disturbed. I looked up and there I saw a nice-looking mature man take a few steps towards me and he said to me across the tiny table, ” young lady, can I join you please,” I answered politely ” yes please.”

A few minutes later he said to me, ” you know… today is my fiftieth birthday,” I opened my mouth in amazement because I really don’t quite know how to put, he looked much older than his age, I told him politely with a smirk across my face, ” wow that’s nice- Happy Birthday,” 

While we had lunch quietly he stopped and said to me, ” I wish I had more fun when I was a lot younger,” and he went on chatting, “It looks to me now like time passed by while I was put on hold. I’ve decided regardless of all the pressures I’m under,  I will henceforth make this year one of celebration and certainty for myself”.

I actually didn’t know how to respond to that, then I told him you don’t have to regret anything because it’s not too late for you to have the fun of your life. I gave him a few TIPS on what to do, he thanked me for the piece I gave him with a grin all over his face, I simply got up and took my leave.

Let me know if you think I’m crazy, if you want to do any of this things with me or if you’ve already done them and have some tips. I’m determined to make each day of my life pretty awesome and making these goals public I believe is a good first step for me to get on the right path.

This brings us to the point where we need to acknowledge that those of us not yet fifty years of age should “live every day as if it were the last” even those that are fifty and above.

Things I would love to do:

  • I would love to turn off the internet for a week. I want to know how that would feel like. No twitter, no Facebook, no Instagram, no whats app. I think that sounds nice.

 

  • I would love to travel to Canada, Australia and ancient towns in China.

 

  • I don’t know how my guy would feel if he reads this, the truth is I so much wish I would have a set of triplets.

 

  • I wouldn’t want to be a salary earner for the rest of my workable life.

 

  • Having a date with VIN DIESEL would be a delight for me. I would cherish that forever!

 

  • I have two stories I’ve written, I don’t really know what’s stopping me from publishing them, I would be glad to start by pushing them out there.

 

  • I would love to buy my dad a BRAND NEW JEEP.

These are a statistics of my goals in life, my thoughts and my passions. I’ve put it all out now. Let’s see what happens…

 

 

 

I have always wanted to be the best

Mrs Ziglar didn’t have the money to buy a lot of high quality feed for her animals, which is what most dairy farmers do to increase milk production. Then, every single day, as she went out in the early morning to milk them, she would stroke each cow, and praise, and compliment them. She would shower each of her five cows with positive words and affirmations, she would tell them they were the most beautiful, wonderful cows in the world. She said they had an abundance of milk so rich and creamy that all other cows would be envious. Everyday, without fail, these cows would be loved, stroked, and told how incredible they were. The cows gradually began to produce more and more milk. As time passed, some of the cows on the ziglar family farm increased milk, As time passed, some of the cows on the Ziglar family farm increased milk production significantly from a few gallons a day to as much as 7 gallons of milk in a single day.

During the early hours of the morning before anyone else is up, close your eyes ans visualize your future self as though you have already achieved whatever goal it is you are trying to accomplish. Get That picture in your mind of the person you wish to become, and daily reaffirm to yourself that you are that person, as if it were a reality today. When a negative thought enters your mind, flush it out quickly. Do not allow negative thoughts to poison your powerful mind. Do whatever you have to do to rid yourself of those toxic thoughts, whether it be to remove yourself from a negative environment, turn on some uplifting music, read some articles on this site (Hint, Hint), exercise, say a prayer, or call your mom. Whatever method works for you, harbor the positive thoughts and eliminate the negative ones as quickly as possible can.
