Cross roads, decisions, choices – sometimes these are not options for us. Life may be full of choices but at the same time, when life choose to happen, that’s exactly what it does – it just happens and without consent from us. Resilience is the key to survival and our reactions say a lot about who we are. … More Where do I go from here?
Let us have a world of ordinary people
Living life the way God wants us to.
And if we have a world of ordinary people,
Extraordinary things would happen through me and you … More SOTD: Ordinary People!
When the Bible says one will chase a thousand and ten will chase ten thousand, it only shows to prove the power of growth, multiplication and profit in the collaboration of effort, agreement, tolerance of opinion and love. After all, can two work together except they agree?
Togetherness, on its own, is a hugely important aspect of life. It unites us, gives us security, much-needed support and a sense of belonging, and encourages us to have adoration for one another.
It’s the ending of a year, another is beckoning on us. Shall we continue in this selfish manner and approach to life, work, family and friends and hope for a yet another better year? Something has got to give. I am willing to walk and work with you if you are ready to hold my hand. … More Will you hold my hand?
In light of my previous post on building successful careers, I would like to explore a more in-depth satisfaction and balance to doing the things that you love while creating time for every other thing/people that you love as well.
I once read that the greatest achievers are dreamers. I didn’t understand it at first but I came to appreciate it almost immediately after realizing the power of an initial conception of an idea if strategized rightly. A friend uses the slogan ‘Success is 99% persistence and 1% passion’ as his email signature. It caught my attention, pulling me back to my self-realization and how I’m doing in regards to the things I dreamed of doing. Even Thomas A. Edison states that “Genius is 99% perspiration and 1% is inspiration”. There has been and still is an increasing percentage, and even more of realization, into the entrepreneur-fold.
I have a lot of thoughts embedded in me, thoughts on how to help someone else be better, help someone else make more informed decisions, help youths be better for themselves and the community. I haven’t concluded on a better way to reach out other than writing. I am open to other ways though. In the meantime, I know I am inclined by my style of living to body consciousness and fashion. I hope to via into this as my retirement business, as a gift to myself eventually. But I do know people who are more passionate and inclined to growing businesses, both theirs and others’, out of a dynamic market need to meet a larger need. These set of people are at more advantage of creating wealth from multiple sources for almost, if not, a lifetime.
In the increasing conviction of the corporate world of constant downsizing and reallocation of manual labor to mechanical, it has become imperative for us all to dig deep and find something else, extra, or even full time to engage in so that we ourselves can become a wealth creator and perhaps eventually, an employer of labor. It’s about time that we are fed up of that one unpredictable source of inflow and device many sources to build that resourceful bottom-line we desire for a comfortable retirement.
So what do you need to look out for in the mirror the next time you’re there? You need to identify in you the face of an entrepreneur, a go-getter. The face of the entrepreneur who is an ardent dreamer, with enough fire-power in the belly, a zealous pursuit, a mighty purpose to fill a need and build sufficient force fields to enable you make the world a better place while reaping some economic rewards for doing so and not the other way round.
It’s not too late to begin with a dream. Neither is it too late to dig out your dream where you once left off.
