Be inspired, uplifted and impacted!

Every day is another opportunity to work towards your dreams and goals. Often we have the misguided impression that external things are stopping us from getting where we want to. But in reality the greatest hindrance is still us. Our fears, anxieties, self-doubt or negative thoughts stop us from tapping into our full potential and stepping out of our comfort zone. We sometimes get consumed by what others might think about us to the extent that we convince ourselves that the safest place is as "part of the masses" or "under the radar".

 

I, therefore, challenge you to ask yourself this question:

"Would I rather look back at my life and say 'I have done it all and achieved it all' or 'I played it safe like everybody else'?"

Take a moment to think before you answer.

Being the bigger person

I recently read an inspiring post on Facebook about a lady who started succeeding in her business after she started leaving the "small fights for the small fighters." She stopped battling out little and unnecessary arguments with colleagues, in-laws and the other people she interacted with on a daily basis. Instead, she refocused her energy on her goals and dreams...
