We have all heard the saying: When the going gets tough, the tough get tougher. But is it really as simple as that? There are times when the going gets so tough that all we want to do is turnover and forget all about it; we want to give up.
We want to stop pursuing the dream that we were so enthusiastic about while things were going the way that we wanted them to go. However, as soon as we are faced with problems that are difficult to overcome, most of us are ready to throw in the towel and call it quits.
Failing in this way is the only way in which failing is something to be embarrassed about. Failing is a part of learning, but giving up only comes with a price- no lesson. Don’t give up when life becomes difficult. You are capable of coping with more than you give yourself credit for.
When things go wrong, as they sometimes will, When the road you’re trudging seems all uphill, When the funds are low and the debts are high, And you want to smile, but you have to sigh, When care is pressing you down a bit, Rest, if you must, but don’t you quit.
Life is queer with its twists and turns, As every one of us sometimes learns, And many a failure turns about, When he might have won had he stuck it out; Don’t give up though the pace seems slow– You may succeed with another blow.
Often the goal is nearer than, It seems to a faint and faltering man, Often the struggler has given up, When he might have captured the victor’s cup, And he learned too late when the night slipped down, How close he was to the golden crown.
Success is failure turned inside out– The silver tint of the clouds of doubt, And you never can tell how close you are, It may be near when it seems so far, So stick to the fight when you’re hardest hit– It’s when things seem worst that you must not quit.
In the driven and ambitious society that we live in, everything we do seems to be measured by the instant results. No longer, are the days when we were taught to work hard, stay consistent and be patient, to reach some level of success now it seems those principles are slowly becoming obsolete. But I’m here to shed light on the importance of falling in love with the process and not just the results. It’s a lesson that might come off absurd at first, but I challenge you to give this idea a listen and apply it your routine to see what results you get.
1. The process will help refocus your energy
2. The process makes you pay attention
3. The process helps you appreciate the result
They say “If you lie down with dogs, you’ll get up with fleas”
If you don’t want fleas, don’t lie down with dogs.
If you don’t want negativity in your life, don’t hang around negative people.
If you want more than average, stop hanging around average people. If success is important to you, don’t hang around with people who have no ambition.
If kindness is important to you, don’t spend time with unkind people.
Your friends and peer group are a great reflection of you, because YOU choose them. Choose wisely.
Entrepreneurs don't just dream, they act on thier dreams.
The true definition of an entrepreneur is one who has a dreams, maps out plans on how to achieve the dreams, put in their best to achieve that dream and wait for results. -
We all have two choices in the mroning when we wake, "to continue dreaming or to go out and chase those dreams"
Have you thought about what you want to be doing in five years' time? Are you clear about what your main objective at work is at the moment? Do you know what you want to have achieved by the end of today?
If you want to succeed, you need to set goals. Without goals you lack focus and direction. Goal setting not only allows you to take control of your life's direction; it also provides you a benchmark for determining whether you are actually succeeding. Think about it: having a million dollars in the bank is only proof of success if one of your goals is to amass riches. If your goal is to practice acts of charity, then keeping the money for yourself is suddenly contrary to how you would define success.
To accomplish your goals, however, you need to know how to set them. You can't simply say, "I want" and expect it to happen. Goal setting is a process that starts with careful consideration of what you want to achieve, and ends with a lot of hard work to actually do it. In between, there are some very well-defined steps that transcend the specifics of each goal. Knowing these steps will allow you to formulate goals that you can accomplish.
Here are our five golden rules of goal setting;
1. Set goals that motivate you
2. Set SMART goals
3. Set goals in writing
4. Make an action plan
5. Stick with it
How bad do you want it?
Work hard for it.
Go all in.
If everyone is putting 40 hours/week into it, you put in 80 hours/week. Even if you're doing the same thing, you'll have accomplished in 4 months, what will take them one year to achieve. -
Just go for it 💪
Every accomplishment comes with the decision to try.
Every journey starts with that first step.
Every success starts with a small dream.
Decide to try today, take the risk, you might end up winning andif you don't, you'll have learnt something. -

Sometimes it’s more difficult to see what’s right about ourselves than what’s wrong. For some of us even thinking about our positive traits makes us uncomfortable. Praise and compliments can make us squirm, and we often don’t know how to respond without self-consciousness. Flattery feels a lot better than insults, of course, but how many of us really take the praise in? Own it. Delight in it. For a whole host of reasons it’s often trickier than you might think to feel positively about ourselves; most of these stem from fear.
One fear involves setting up overly-high expectations. Underplaying our good points means that we’re more likely to pleasantly surprise others by doing well rather than disappoint them by doing poorly. We’re also afraid of letting go of the devil we know. If we’re in the habit of cutting ourselves down, recognition of our positive qualities will feel alien to us. Another fear is the perception of being vain. Nobody likes a narcissist — except the narcissist.
So how do we celebrate our admirable qualities in a healthy way? I believe the answer is self-compassion, which involves treating ourselves with kindness, a sense of common humanity, and mindfulness when considering our perceived inadequacies — though in a different guise. I like to call it “self-appreciation.” When we can enjoy what’s good about ourselves, acknowledging that all people have strengths as well as weaknesses, we allow ourselves to revel in our goodness without evoking feelings of arrogance or overconfidence.
Let’s first consider kindness as it applies to self-appreciation. Would you take your friends’ good qualities for granted without ever acknowledging them or letting your friends know what you like about them? Probably not, yet many of us do so to ourselves. It’s a great gift of self-kindness to appreciate ourselves and to demonstrate our approval with sincere praise. We don’t have to speak this praise aloud, making ourselves and others uncomfortable in the process. But we can quietly give ourselves the inner acknowledgement we deserve.

The secret of getting things done is to act!”—Dante Alighieri.
Those who talk less and act more are not difficult to know because they are soon counted among the very successful in the society. Talking more and acting less is an open invitation to poverty and hatred among those who claim to love you.
There is a big tendency to offend those who lurk around you when you talk and talk because in the multitude of words lies transgression. Be reasonable and be moderate in all that you do in order not attract the wrong people to yourself.
When you talk less you can and will achieve more in life. Talking less and acting more also puts you among the category of people who have the ability to impact their world.
That is the secret of the wealthy—they observe more and act more…
Only make decisions that support your self-image, self-esteem, and self-worth. -
Ideas for Building a Healthy Self-Image and Improving Self-Esteem
1. Start small – Take it one step at a time
2. Say “No” to your inner critic
3. Take a 2-minute self-appreciation break
4. Go for good enough
5. Avoid falling into the comparison trap
6. Spend your time with supportive people.
My favorite quotes on failure is this: “If you’re not prepared to be wrong, you’ll never come up with anything original.” — Ken Robinson
My failures have never stopped me from starting over or creating new projects or experimenting new ideas. I have lost thousands of dollars in the process. But I have not stopped experimenting. I never will. I persist. Because it matters.
When you fail, adapt rapidly and keep moving!
Joshua Becker of becoming minimalist says:
Life is experienced as a constant, never-ending shift between successes and failures — sometimes occurring within moments of one another. To be human is to fail. We know this to be true from personal experience.
You shouldn’t give up just because you have witnessed too many failures or have seen others fail too many times in the same industry or niche you intend to pursue. Failure can bring so much to learn about ourselves and how we work. Each time you bounce back from problems and rise above obstacles, you will grow mentally stronger.
If you lose, say nothing
If you win, say less. -
Don't let your winnings get to your heart don't let your failures get to your head.
Be the lady who decided to go for what she wants.
If you want something, nobody is going to get it for you, you have to get up and go for what you want
In an intellectual sense, we all know that life is short. But how many of us actually live our day to day lives like we’re really going to die one day?
Many of us live lives filled with tedium, responsibilities, and unpleasant chores. We spend so much of our mental energy just getting through each day that its easy to forget that our time on earth is finite, that each moment we fritter away is a moment we will never get back.
What would you do differently if you could really appreciate the imminence of death? Do you need to have a near-death experience to truly feel the fragility of life?
We need to be reminded that life’s too short to spend everyday doing work you hate. Life’s too short to hold grudges against people we love. Life’s too short not to see the wonders of the world. Life’s too short to not live life to the fullest.
Depending on how old you are, this is either a famous line spoken by T. E. Lawrence in Lawrence of Arabia, or by the android David in Prometheus (spoken, of course, as an homage to Lawrence of Arabia). I was reminded of that quote reading Chikai’s post. As he notes, when Taylor Swift was starting out, as a country singer, it was probably hard to see that she would one day become the biggest pop star in the world. Okay, maybe the ambition to become a country star isn’t “small,” but it’s decidedly smaller than what she would become.
As Chikai goes on to note, there are similarities to the way Instagram and Snapchat started, with more humble beginnings, before exploding into mega stardom. The same, of course, is true with Facebook, Twitter — in fact, it’s probably true of basically every startup. Certainly the ones that get their start on the web and/or mobile.
This all sounds incredibly obvious.
And yet, I can’t tell you how many startups try to begin by “boiling the ocean” — that is, trying to do everything they can because they can. It’s almost always a mistake, of course. (Hard to come up with a time when it’s not.) Not only do you need to focus and all that — but you need to convince a group of early users to become die hard users. And that’s a lot easier to do if you start out "small".
Getting the most out of life takes some planning. If you would plan what you are going to do today, it truly could improve all of your tomorrows.
Exciting things happen when you make an effort to be sure each day’s activities are productive and worthwhile. "Productive", can be job related or family related. It can be work or leisure related. Regardless of the activity, if it is worth doing, it will lead to a better future.
Today's habits are create tomorrow’s rewards. When you make an effort to do your best in all you do, you are sowing the seeds of greatness. You are preparing for a bountiful life harvest in all of your tomorrows.
A wise woman once said "i got my own back" and she handled it. - Maya Angelou
