I could begin by giving reasons why I felt the need for the approval of others. The reasons will include my childhood being the youngest of many children and constantly being told what and what not to do. Or I could mention my social need to be noticed and acknowledged which has now be digitizedContinue reading “how I stopped looking to others for approval and why you also should stop”

What is holding you back?
While thinking about my next inspirational post, my thought process was interrupted by the singing of my 3-year old toddler and just then I caught inspiration on what to write. We came into this world without fears, inhibitions or limitations. Over the course of our lives we begin to acquire these for the reason of,Continue reading “What is holding you back?”
How do you inspire yourself?
The only images that can be produced are those which are captured. In other, less cryptic words, your reality depends on what you see. Worlds, countries, houses, architectural masterpieces, sculptures, fine artwork all originate from a single thought in the mind of the creator. But this ‘single thought’ comes from somewhere. In a way, oneContinue reading “How do you inspire yourself?”
How to identify what you are good at
Some of us were fortunate enough to be superstars from childhood. We were put down a specific path in life. Our parents took us through a regimented lifestyle. Our lives revolved around, say, the golf course, music lessons, swimming classes etc. Little wonder we turned out to be excellent at these. Tiger Woods was introduced toContinue reading “How to identify what you are good at”
I’ve got one life to live (short read)

Another post about productivity (short read)
We’ve all got 1001 things to do in a day. I certainly do! For example, I work a 9-5 and after 5 I write, read, be a father, be a husband (together with running all the errands), prepare for talks or lessons I may be giving at the weekend, make and receive calls, the oddContinue reading “Another post about productivity (short read)”
Why you must not give up…
If, like me, you woke up today to the thought of the futility of certain endeavours my message to you today is that you don’t give up. To the one starting a business, pursuing a dream of financial independence – don’t give up. To the one trying to lose weight, putting in the hours workingContinue reading “Why you must not give up…”
Vision… (short read)
Opportunities are boundless to the one constantly seeking opportunities. In the end we will be judged not by the risks we did not take but the lives we did not change when we had the opportunity to. The mind is an amazing and powerful organ. Like a Polaroid camera, it can only develop negatives (eventually into pictures) it hasContinue reading “Vision… (short read)”
My Weakness? I notice everything (1 minute read)
I’ve seen this statement several times on social media but only recently did it dawn on me. Yes, I notice everything as would most introverts and for sometime now I’ve seen it as a burden. But as I pondered on it I realised that it is indeed a strength and not a weakness! Everything is aboutContinue reading “My Weakness? I notice everything (1 minute read)”
What is wisdom?
Wisdom is the right application of knowledge. The ability to use the knowledge you have to solve a problem constitutes wisdom. The knowledge we possess on a subject or person is only useful when it is applied positively. Don’t be the one who is constantly going on courses and signing up to training acquiring knowledgeContinue reading “What is wisdom?”
